Are there any details about a memorial service for him?

Re: “Farewell, Franzi

First time I met him was at a merit commission meeting in 1982 and he had a bowl haircut and looked like Peter Lorre.

Re: “Farewell, Franzi

I appreciate reading all the tributes and life stories about him. Having lived in Tucson many years and hearing on the radio and reading his columns, I have a lot more appreciation for all that he did to make our area a better place to live. I admire standing up for what you believe, but being able to work with those who have different beliefs for a common goal. ie President Reagan and Tip O'Neil.
Southern Arizona is poorer with his passing.

Re: “Farewell, Franzi

This was a great tribute to Emil. Many of the stories that were shared resonated with me. Thanks for doing this!

Re: “Farewell, Franzi

Franzi was Franzi. That's the best thing I could say about him, or anybody. I will miss him. Pima County ought to build a great big statue of him, just so he can come back and scream about it.

Re: “Paper Weight

Bravo Nick! May you continue to create and show us humanity through your intellectual written embodied textual figures. I am most inspired by your Hermes window. Thanks Carl for your article. It has inspired me. Miss you both!

Re: “Angels & Demons

The memorial should not be built with public money. The public money should be invested into services for the mentally ill, which is what caused this tragedy in the first place. A memorial is about ego's and celebrating/mourning the past, let's look forward, stop mourning and put our own personalities aside to invest this money where it is needed and can actually address a real and prevalent problem throughout the state.

Re: “Angels & Demons

It's nice to see RICO laws tightened up. It's a huge corrupting influence in law enforcement. Not only are individuals tempted by the slush fund, but law enforcement unions and associations tend to lobby against any liberalization of tight drug prohibition laws because those laws keep the RICO funds flowing.

My husband and I loved the Haunted Bookshop and miss it very much.

Re: “Hell Yes!

Wow. The votes aren't even counted and the city is meeting on declaring itself a sanctuary city. I hope this new tax goes down in flames.

Re: “Hell Yes!

That's like telling me Houghton Road is going to be widened. They told me that in 1967, and it still isn't done. Don't trust, verify. These liars have a horrific track record and I am not giving them more money. Borrow it from the County!

No on 101!!!

Re: “Hell Yes!

Hey Bub, Broadway east of Camino Seco is already planned, funded and scheduled to be repaved...

What about the rest of our roads? I am voting yes for this proposition because our current city government demonstrated effective spending during the last funding cycle for roads. Let's keep the ball rolling. I get it that people are upset and the system is not as efficient as it should be BUT we have as many miles of roadway as the city of Chicago (same city sq miles) but we only have about 1/6th the population, at some point we have to find an alternative way of paying for the roads. Ideally this would be funded by a gas tax or registration fee increase in addition to receiving more help from the state, for example HURF funding... Back to reality, this is our best chance to keep the progress going and the city has demonstrated enough over the last 5 years to justify another 5 or 6.

Re: “Hell Yes!

Broadway east of Camino Seco might as well be scraped clean and drill for oil. It no longer qualifies as a paved road. Shame on this local government. They have cheated the tax payers.

Re: “Hell Yes!

$9.4 million city surplus last year --- could have purchased 15 brand new pumper trucks for the fire dept and had $$$ for overhaul of bulletproof vests --- instead all city employees got a bonus --- now they try to raise our taxes.

Re: “Hell Yes!

I am thrilled to see all of these comments for a vote NO. Only a total group of incompetents can write a $1.4 billion budget & turn to our policemen & paramedics and say "no money for your overheating ambulances, no money for your bulletproof vests". n7iqv is SPOT ON about the tree planters - utterly careless use of taxpayer money & now drivers can't see oncoming traffic when moving in to the center turn lane. I'm hoping to soon get commentary in the Daily Star about how inept our current sales tax system is. NO TO PROP 101!

Re: “Hell Yes!

Not on the backs of working people. If you can't pass a property tax, we don't need a sales tax.

Our property taxes are near the lowest, our sales taxes are near the highest. Much as I hate to say it, the teabaggers are right on this one...

!NO 101!

Re: “Hell Yes!

Temporary tax? Come on people how do you think they got us to a combined rate of 8.1%.

Absolutely NO on 101.
