I love this little place. The chile rellenos are excellent. The soups, filling and tasty, are served with a choice of corn/flour tortillas. It's a family run business [no, I'm not part of the family]. I've been so often that I know them, tho! The pan dulces can be taken home and so can the soups. When you sit in the small dining area you are down in Mexico, as the lovely mural fills the wall with rural scences that include an active volcanco.
Very concerned and saddened by McSally's negative vote on this. She had a good idea to increase funding to other clinics, but when that failed to fly she showed her allegiance to toeing the party line. She surely doesn't care about the people of her district by defunding this vital health care service.
Smithappens....yes, it does. and big smit is rape and incest. Not "life threatening" but in need of a subsidized abortion option. Also, an abortion is usually not surgery. I find it pretty naive to believe that a pregnancy can always be prevented. The best way to assure that would be for males to become electively sterile. Any volunteers?
Yes, the roads in Tucson are really bad. Sure hope this $$ is used to fix them. Until recently I've lived in Portland, OR. That city has good roads and an extensive light rail network. Getting around without a car has been facilitated with trains since the 1970's when the light rail was begun. Get over the wild west cowboy mind set that keeps Old Pueblo's denizens in love with those polluting autos!
Hey, Kate, Please be careful of making generalizations and sweeping accusations of "old white people." I have moved to Tucson and am white and proud of 76 years of progressive activism. As a retired Head Start teacher and Returned Peace Corps volunteer, will always support education with my $$ and my heart. May Ron Barber win.
Doesn't AZ still claim the Grand Canyon or has it been sold to uranium mining?
Thanks, Tracy for the clear information on the process of vote by mail. I've been voting in Oregon most of my life. We have mail in voting and have for many years. There has never been any accusations of fraud. Voter turn out is higher. We are given a secrecy envelope free of identification. We don't need a stamp as there are drop boxes all over. Change is hard. But come on Old Pueblo, you can change!
An interesting and thoughtful discussion on education....thanks to all. I will contribute my knowledge and experience as a early learning professional in public, private schools and currently with Head Start. Yes, money and how it is allocated reflect our values and our politics. And in turn the quality of our children's education. Head Start began in the 60's. Enrollment is open to families living below the Federal poverty level. It began as an educational experience for 4 year olds and has now expanded to sometimes include infants.
A major emphasis has always been to involve parents[ usually mothers]. Last week I spoke with 8 Black Head Start teachers. All of them had been parents of Head Start children. Now all 8 were either enrolled in BA programs, had BAs or had MA's. This is proof that if opportunities are available to people living with generational poverty, as these women were, lives will be changed.
