Re: “Revolutionary Fashion

Great story about a locally owned business. We need more of them! Do they still operate one in Pacific Beach?

Re: “Confessions of an eBay opium addict

This article, if anything, has made me want to try it! I live in a depressed trapped existence! I blow all my ,money on pain meds. Would rather be a pod head. If it kills me, at least I'll go out with a grin on my face!
Wonder what ever happened to the writer. I'm not much for reading long articles but found myself hanging on every cleverly written word!
Now off to make a pod purchase..........................

Re: “A New Billy the Kid?

Actually, Nick Wood, there are too many physiological disparities between Billy's skeletal structure and "Brushy" Bill's skeletal structure. Couldn't be the same person unless Billy had major reconstructive surgery - something not available at that time.

Re: “A New Billy the Kid?

MY FEELING IS THAT BRUSHY BILL WAS BILLY THE KID but I don't think anyone will really know.

Re: “A Tucked-Away Treasure

It must have changed. It now says 7000 species of plants and animals. But if so, isn't the editor supposed to point out the correction?

Re: “A Tucked-Away Treasure

I'm still trying to figure out what the author meant when she wrote that the Sky Islands had 7,000 bird species. Since there aren't nearly that number of bird species in North and South America combined, not even close, she had to mean something else. Maybe how many people will invade Aravaipa now that the word is out. It's a gem beyond compare in southern Arizona.

Re: “The Saga of Three Points

Despite what the article states, Three Points, like any other town or city, has its pros and cons. I believe some areas are far worse than others, but as others have posted above, it takes change to make something happen. Hopefully Three Points will once again be a place of beauty and peace. Living outside the city limits is great. I was born and raised in Three Points, went to Mary E. Dill and Altar Valley. I moved to Texas in 2007, but I honestly can't stand it here. I'm on the coast - so no mountains, no desert rain smell, etc. My wife and I are moving back to Three Points in the next year and couldn't be happier.

Re: “Fair House

Funny to see this today,

Tucson just finished putting up parking signs in Barrio Viejo, 'New' Locals Only.

250 days a year there isn't anyone except those who like to park and walk to work, now we have more restrictive parking than downtown.

Re: “Fair House

City of Tucson placed Section 8 recipients next door to us. They turned out to be dealing drugs as there was a very poor screening process involved. Crime skyrocketed in our neighborhood, and former Mayor George Miller referred to all of us that moved away, as "white flight."

You helped cause it George.

Dense with uncomfortable details and many layers of issues that are entwined with our history. Kudos to Tucson Weekly and to SWFHC

Re: “Fair House

Such a complicated and important issue, and such a confusing, wandering article. Is this an article about public housing? Historical and modern racial segregation? The housing challenges of the disabled? All important issues, but this article's structure, organization, and examples confuse the reader and wanders between the present and past without drawing clear connections between racial segregation in housing leases and a woman with support dogs.

Re: “Mysteries in the Mountains

A mention was made of 'Lost' which was the coolest television I have ever seen. But Lost may have been inspired by true events. You see there are documented islands that have been discovered by Explorers and Ship's Captains that disappeared when follow up visits were made by either the same or another Explorer of Captain. And then some of these have mysteriously reappeared again later, with no explanation. These mysteries are mentioned in a paranormal book I have from the early 1970's called 'Beyond the Strange' by Eric Norman. It is full of weird tales and adventures. Eric Norman also wrote 'This Hollow Earth' and 'The Under People', a second book about the Hollow Earth topic. They are all great books and you will be very lucky to find them, if at all. Not sure if I believe in the Hollow Earth theory, but I won't say it couldn't be true, either. Another mystery that has been reported in some of these paranormal topic books by Frank Edwards (or was it Eric Norman..) is the famed 'City in the Sky' seen by people in some remote part of Alaska. Could that be the legendary Shambala? Or an optic illusion. It was noted long before modern technology could have created it. Then there is Frank Edwards stunning UFO book. "Flying Saucers, Serious Business". It is the single best UFO I have ever read, it will amaze you. I have seen more than one spectacular sighting myself, including the weirdest lights at close range. I read every single book John Keel wrote and they are all amazing also. Get every book I listed, it will boggle your mind. Then read Dr Brain Weiss's books as well as Robert Monroe. You will not regret any of these classics.

Re: “Who Wants to Be a Teacher?

I just spoke to a principal of a Tucson elementary school. She asked me to come back to Arizona and teach in Tucson because, "Tucson has a shortage of teachers." I left Arizona after a mass lay-off of teachers coming up on their 20 years, in 2011. When I asked how much my salary would be, I was told $33,000. When I asked her how would I live on this, she said, "You can't."

Re: “Mysteries in the Mountains

Interesting thing happened to me down in that General vicinity. Have not thought of it in years until I read this story. Sometime in the middle 70s early 80s. I was in Rio Rico working, returning to Tucson crossing the highway overpass from Rio Rico to head north on i-19. There was a hellacious Monsoon storm happening, (I love the wild weather here in Southern Arizona) as I was just beginning to cross the bridge I experienced a very bright light that would have been considered approximately 10 ft off the roadway directly in front of me. Bright enough that it looked almost like a locomotive headlight. Happened in a Split Second and at the time freaked me out a little but didn't think too much about it. I attributed to maybe a lightning Flash. Don't think I even ever mentioned it to anybody. Some years later don't remember what I was reading about, but the term Saint Elmo's Fire came up. When it explained what it was (essentially ball lightning that can happen in strong storm environments) I figured ah ha, that's what it was. Regardless after reading this story and it being in such close proximity to these occurrences I thought it was worth mentioning. The story was a pretty good read in any case the guy who was the narrator did not speak as though he was trying to scam people. Just my opinion.
