Long time Tucsonan. Wondering where/when we lost our sense of direction as a city and community. Retired only because most businesses in the area seem to not like the idea of hiring people over 55.. Or more so, after 60.

Re: “Media Watch

I heard a strange noise the other day as I drove past Roger & Oracle roads. Best I can describe, it sounded like a concert of sales people NASH-ing their teeth.

Re: “Editor's Note

Adding more "gun controls" is not a solution to the problem of mental health issues. Proper diagnosis and treatment of those with such concerns would help lessen the tide of both murders and suicides.

Sadly, many persons receive little, or in many cases NO treatment for their problems. Many who continue having difficulty have chosen to stop taking helpful medications prescribed to them

There are too many facets to the question of "how to stop the violence" to expect instant success by imposing more restrictions on those who obey laws already in place.

Removing guns from the puzzle would just move those considering an act of violence simply to find another method to achieve their goal.

Re: “Media Watch


Sorry to hear of another cutback in local media. Media Watch was the primary reason I continue to look forward to my Thursday email (yes, I gave up trying to find an unshredded paper Weekly a couple years ago). Now, I guess the online version might do well to offer alternative week issues of Media Watch and the Play with Yourself column, but only time will tell.

PS. I never watched "Community" when it was on TV, either.

Chris Edwards....the 21st century answer to Austin and Bargain Center Furniture. Crazy? Sure. Cheesy production values? You got it. Tucson? It's all wrapped up (and warped up) in Edwards' TV spots. And Chris shares what Austin was...generous to local charities, and actually GLAD to see you in places other than the store.

Re: “Media Watch

One of the best things I can bring to the Dan Ryan discussion: He was the genuine article. Not a fluff head as many "anchors" today have become. You could bump into him on the sidewalk or in the produce section, and he'd return your greeting and not become "bothered" by your intrusion. He liked..no, LOVED Tucson, and shared that love with all he had contact.

John Schuster...ten, twenty more years into the future, Dan Ryan will still hold his "Best of" title for many in Southern Arizona.

Re: “Media Watch

It should be noted that stations NOT subscribing to the ratings services usually are not included in the ratings reports. Various formats fall into the "not reported" category, such as KUAZ and KVOI in the news/talk outlets.

Re: “The Tucson Weekly 2015 Endorsements

Prop 201...Vote YES to get rid of the cameras, then vote for Hunt, Lawton and Burkholder for Council. Adding the three fresh voices to the panel might just help to put MORE COPS on the street to enforce the laws. When was the last time you saw a traffic cam pull over a driver who was weaving because they were impaired, texting, or both? THAT is why we need to focus on adding human resources, and the three new faces promise to try and fix the current situation...if the remaining council members wake up and sees the problems around the city.
