Re: “Welcome to Summer

No article on keeping cool in Tucson should skip a mention of Tucson Parks and Recreation pools. A summer pass good for all pools is only $75 for adults & $30 for kids under 17. Better deals are available for families or year-round swimmers:

Re: “Mailbag

I didn't see the story calling Dave Ewoldt's platform "Neo-Hippie" - but the description amused me. I went to the LD-28 debates in September with an open mind. Ewoldt reminded me of George Carlin.

Re: “Guest Commentary

The article failed to mention that pool fees doubled about the same time many pools were closed.

Year-round pools are used by lap-swimmers who can find other places to exercise. Summer pools are used by families who feel better leaving kids at a pool with a lifeguard than hanging out in the streets or malls. Large families probably couldn't fit those double fees into a tight budget. I'm curious. Did the increase in fees make up for the decrease in attendance?

Re: “Noisy Neighbor?

It seems most people who whine about the noise moved to Tucson long after Davis Monthan was established. Do they remember the sonic booms of the 1950's? We no longer see supersonic flights (broken windows?) in the Tucson area, but those who still complain should never have moved to Tucson. Most people over 55 I know call the flights "The Sound of Freedom" and never complain. When I was in my 20's I lived just northwest of the DM runway and worked "swing shift".....getting to bed at 2:00 AM. The training flights (& what I assume were touch and go landings) started earlier in the morning than they do now, and I felt somewhat robbed of sleep. Obviously, I survived.

Re: “Danehy

I have no problem with civil unions or gays having equal rights, but marriage is a religious ritual and DOES have a definition...the joining of a man & woman to be husband & wife. This is simply impossible for gay couples. I'm almost certain a lot of the opposition would drop off if they worded it "Civil Unions". Why not? Too many gays have that "in your face" attitude that sends them to extremes to antagonize others, and the result is more opposition (miggy420 is just as obnoxious as sojourn). The way that Perez Hilton jerk treated a beauty contest winner probably only served to earn him (but not all gays) more enemies. I'm actually enough of a Libertarian to support dropping special benefits to couples & treating them no differently from singles (especially for taxes, workplace benefits, etc.)

Re: “Danehy

Please don't take story ideas from Arthur Frommer....you're better than that. Also, Azrat is right, but the fact that the media didn't show his face & tried to make it into a racist situation just proved how devious some of them can be.
