The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Operation Game Thief is offering a $1,500 reward for any information leading to an arrest after a javelina was stoned to death at Tanque Verde Elementary school last Friday night.

The remains were found surrounded by landscaping rocks covered with blood in the courtyard of the school. According to Game and Fish, the javelina died from blunt force trauma, and other physical evidence was found at the scene.

“This was a malicious act, that of a criminal, a person without regard for the state’s most precious resource, its wildlife,” said Regional Supervisor Raul Vega of Game and Fish in Tucson, in a statement. “The javelina suffered an especially cruel death. In addition, this happened at an elementary school, which could have had a negative impact on young children were it not for the prompt response of sheriff’s deputies.”

Those with information about the case are urged to contact the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Operation Game Thief Hotline at 800-352-0700 and reference OGT #20-000302, anonymously if need be.

The maximum penalty for the crime of illegally taking wildlife is six months in jail and a $750 fine. Civil penalties may also apply.

Medicine for Melancholy (Free screening). The Loft Cinema is screening the debut feature film from Barry Jenkins, who would later direct the acclaimed Moonlight and If Beale Street Could Talk. A swirling odyssey of sepia tones, Medicine for Melancholy follows two young people whose one-night stand turns into a 24-hour journey through San Francisco. Between bike rides and underground dance parties, they grapple with “popular culture and black identity amid a rapidly gentrifying San Francisco.” This independent film was produced on a budget of $15,000, over the course of 15 days with a cast of only two. This free screening is presented by Barrio Brewing. 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

Molly Sarlé at El Crisol Tonight!

Posted By on Mon, Feb 17, 2020 at 10:27 AM

Molly Sarlé, formerly of folk-trio Mountain Man, is performing tonight at El Crisol/EXO in downtown Tucson in support of her debut solo album, Karaoke Angel. We recently spoke about the album and what’s next for the neo-folk singer:

TW: Your debut album, Karaoke Angel, is more produced than the previous work with Mountain Man. How did production come into play when putting it together?

Sarlé: Sam Owens of the project Sam Evian produced Karaoke Angel with me at a studio called Dreamland in Woodstock, NY. We wanted to prioritize the vocals and my ability to feel the music that was being made. So, instead of using headphones everything was played out of monitors into the space (Dreamland used to be a church). Most of the songs on the record were recorded live.

TW: On that note, what was the inspiration behind the album’s title as well as the concept.

Sarlé: I’m a storyteller at heart. To me, song writing is about storytelling. I love the concept of karaoke in that we are taking a story someone else has written and retelling it as ourselves. Which I think is incredibly important.

TW: Do you plan on going back to more minimalist folk using lo-fi recording in your upcoming work?

Sarlé: Naw, dog.

TW: What’s the next project, if any? Any new Mountain Man projects?

Sarlé: It’s still in the incubator.

TW: Have you been to Tucson before? If so, what’s your impression of our city?

Sarlé: I have! I love Tucson. I’m hoping to go for a hike and excited to hang out at EXO.

TW: What’s your go-to karaoke song?

Sarlé: Currently it’s “Why” by Annie Lennox.

Sarlé will be supported by local Chelsey Trejo. For ticket information and more info, check out El Crisol’s website at 

Check out Sarlé's performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk in October 2019.
