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.

No accountability to voters, no goals, no end..ever.

Easy Choice: NO on Prop 204.

Re: “Rugrat Referendum

The City of Tucson has many priorities for taking care of it's citizens and infrastructure, as set forth in the City CHarter. The education of preschoolers is NOT one of those priorities. Education, funding of those programs, and program management falls under the State of Arizona and the school districts. If you want to change programs, add programs, or fund programs, the City is not where your efforts should be directed.

There is another part of early childhood education that is not addressed by Prop 204, and costs far less than $50 million each year. PARENTS: get involved with your kids' lives. Read with your kids, talk with your children, share the values that are important to you.

Don't abdicate your responsibility or leave it to political appointees to raise your kids. Do your job as parents. And, as part of those duties, VOTE NO ON PROPOSITION 204.

Re: “Danehy

Thanks, Tom, for a great column. I don't usually choke up from reading the Weekly, but this week, you got me. Even some tears...of joy. Having been around Amphi and meeting Coach Friedli (usually at the grocery store) he was ALWAYS a gentle man and one of the most positive educators I've erer met.

Should you ever pen a script for "the Vern Friedli Story", let us know. I'm in line for opening night tickets.

Re: “The Skinny

Only THREE of the candidates for the Ward III office on the show? There are FOUR people running in that race. I guess if the candidate isn't a "D", they don't matter?

Re: “High-Flying Chicken

All the buildup, all the "press" coverage, and the flight of ChickenShip One is scrubbed.
I'll be over at Arby's, awaiting updates.

Re: “Danehy

Tom,

Wish to pass along condolences on the passing of your radio sparring partner (and Automatic Weapons Editor) Emil Franzi. We've really missed hearing you and Emil on Saturday's "Inside Track" program after so many years. Sure, we didn't agree with you OR Emil on a lot of points, but hearing an animated and intelligent discussion was always a pleasant experience.

RIP, Franzi.

Re: “Editor's Note

Um..."the disturbing changes that have come as the water level in Lake Powell has dropped during our most recent drought." ???

FLASH! There wasn't a Lake Powell until the construction of the dam. Dropping lake levels are more like Mother Nature trying to restore that part of northern AZ and southern UT to what had been there up until 50 or so years ago.

This sounds more like a "win" for the region, rather than a disaster.
