Re: “An Odd Anthology

You took me to meet C. Bowden in his home in Tucson back in...'93?
We sat in an "Arizona room" while you both talked.
I listened, mostly.
Encircled by cacti in a bunch of pots.
To this day, I carry in my heart his words of "perhaps everything 'just is'- no beginning. no end. no right. no wrong. 'just is.' I repeat it in my head multiple times every day, a mantra.
It's beautiful to see you writing so much.

Re: “Still They Persisted

I am a granddaughter of one of the deportees-Fernando Gomez. He did, indeed, return to Bisbee from New Mexico. He traveled with his wife young son and possibly one infant daughter to San Pedro, CA where he worked as a longshoreman. Several years and three more children later they returned to Bisbee (in 1924). He went to work in the Shattuck mine where he was killed in a cave-in in January 1925.

Re: “Still They Persisted

I've been tracking down the fates of the Bisbee deportees and the vigilantes for almost 2 1/2 years. We now have a much better understanding of who the deportees were and what happened to them after they were deported. Some of them did indeed return to Bisbee and we know that at least 28 are buried at Evergreen Cemetery in Lowell. I have been in contact with the many of the descendants of deportees, who have provided photos and stories about their ancestor's lives before, during and after the Deportation. New information about and photos of the Deportees (as well as new information about the vigilantes and the Deportation plotters) will be shared with the public at the Copper Queen Library in Bisbee on Tuesday, May 21, at 5:30 p.m.

Re: “A Remembrance of Painful Things Past

I have the book and am looking forward to reading it. Thanks for publishing this excerpt. Remember, Etherton is having a thing for Chris on Sat 4/13 at 3pm (better check on that, I'm relying on my feeble memory).
I truly miss "Eat. Fly. Cake."

Re: “40 Essential Arizona Books

Maybe because they cover the years my parents were growing up here, but two of my favorite local History books are Letters from Tucson, 1925-1927 & Letters from Tucson, 1933-1942 by Ethel Stiffler Carpenter. Very readable, with many mentions of local friends & acquaintances & interesting impressions of a newcomer enthusiastically dealing with living in Tucson before the days of cooling or air conditioning.

Re: “40 Essential Arizona Books

Too bad you missed two by C.J. Shane, "Desert Jade" (about immigration and human trafficking) and "Dragon's Revenge" (about Chinese immigration in early Tucson). Both take place in Tucson and are fast-paced mysteries.

Re: “40 Essential Arizona Books

A really interesting list that reminds me that there's never going to be a end to my reading list. Of course there's more than 40 essential reads - here's a couple more. "Arizona Place Names" by Will C. Barnes I personally prefer the original edition first published in 1935. A virtual tour every time you pick it up. Second is "ON the Border with Crook" by John G. Bourke. This is a post-Civil War eye-witness account of the final Indian wars that remains relevant to this day.As I type this I'm reminded of Book West by Southwest on Campbell Avenue. It was such a Tucson treasure.

Re: “A Terrible Beauty

You libtards are incredible. You drive your cars down roads, live in a town with buildings, and utility wires are strung all over the place. Large agricultural farms spread there pollution on the land, electric generators spew coal smoke into our air, and other development changes the landscape. Guess what, with a population and need for basic infrastructure and natures materials, the earth is going to be scarred. Quit pretending your brand of lifestyle does not impact Mother Earth.

Re: “A Terrible Beauty

There is indeed beauty to be found in mining landscapes and mining communities. Head frames, concentrators, smelter stacks and change rooms make great subjects for photographers and painters, but there is a terrible price to be paid - especially for open pit mining. Open pits destroyed long-established neighborhoods (most of Lowell, all of Upper Lowell, Jiggerville, the Johnson Addition, Germantown and Cowan Ridge) that made up 1/3 of Bisbee, the entire towns of old Morenci, Metcalf, and Ray, many old established neighborhoods in Butte, MT and ironically, a beautiful plaza and the rest of a planned community in Tyrone, NM. Open pit mining leaves horribly ugly gaping wounds in the earth that will never be healed. Each time I drive down State Route 83 between Sonoita and I-10 in either direction, I think about how such a hideous, gaping wound might well soon scar the Santa Ritas. Margaret Regan is absolutely correct in her observations about the ill treatment of mining and milling workers by the copper companies - the copper bosses conceded nothing in the way of wages and benefits (and equal treatment of workers of color) without a hard fight and did their utmost to destroy unions and crush dissent in their corporate fiefdoms.

Re: “A Terrible Beauty

Despite Alan Johnson's SHOUTING...he makes a good point. I've traveled past the Sahuarita mine for 45 years and to my perspective the mostly sterile terraces haven't changed one iota. That's what will happen in the Santa Rita Mountains and the scenic beauty will- for all intents and purposes- be destroyed for the lives of many generations.

Re: “A Terrible Beauty

ANY ATTEMPT TO GLORIFY THE CARNAGE PRODUCED BY MINING IS SINFUL AT BEST . IT IS DISCOURAGING TO SEE THAT ARTISTS FIND THIS SUBJECT MATTER WORTHY OF ARTISTIC NOTE . PERHAPS MINING SHOULD BE SHOWN IN A " BEFORE AND AFTER FORMAT " . A SPLIT SCREEN PAINTING OF THE BEAUTIFUL SCENE WHERE THE PROPOSED ROSEMONT COPPER MINE , AS IT IS TODAY , WITH AN ARTIST'S VISION OF THE SAME SCENE AFTER 20 YEARS OF MINING WOULD PROVIDE A TOPIC OF MUCH CONCERN .

Re: “Stages of Life

A great Theatre town deserves a great Theatre critic. Sherilyn Forrester's reviews are enlightening and entertaining in equal parts. As another year draws to a close, I'm grateful for the light she shines on each Theatre season with her inimitable blend of honesty, wit and heart.

Re: “The Music Man Comes To Town

If I may pick a nit here, I would like to point out that the creator of this terrific piece of work over 60 years ago deserves to have his name, Robert Reiniger Meredith Willson, properly spelled.
