Re: “Why Teachers Are Leaving (And New Teachers Aren't Replacing Them)

There is yet another issue, not mentioned in the article, nor addressed in the comments. Our son had to leave school to provide for his family. He returned, received his BA while working at a full time job, has 2 years of classroom experience in Middle School Special Education and Title 1 as a Teaching Assistant, and genuinely wants to teach. He does not have his certification, although that ,according to the state, is not required. He applied to every school district in Tucson and did not even receive one offer. Not even a temporary or probationary opportunity. I may be naive, but a 40+ year old male, with teenage children of his own, willing to teach at any grade level, not a fresh young graduate who may barely be older than the students to be taught, would seem to be a pretty decent commodity. So, the school districts can gripe all they want, but when someone who wants to work in a less than desirable profession gets no consideration, the districts are equally culpable.

Re: “The New Whole Foods Is Open and They Have Great Beer

Plus, since Whole Paychex' CEO declared that 'Obamacare' is akin to fascism, he & his company can take a long walk off a short pier.

Re: “CD2 Update: Barber Leads McSally by 512 Votes

The simple question is why AZ (and many other states) have not enacted laws so early ballots can be counted when received. Given that mail in balloting is and/or will be the preferred choice for so many voters, it is absurd to do otherwise. The exact same process of ensuring ballots are counted correctly would work just fine and there would be far less "23rd hour panic."
