Welcome back, Wildcats

It's the time of the year when all those co-eds come back to Tucson in search of a college education and all that comes with it: Adderall-fueled all-nighters, keg parties, date dashes, Special K freakouts, hookups and all that other stuff that kids are all up into.

Since I have no idea what the kids (older than preschoolers) do these days, I turned the cover story over to three of our Wildcats around the office: Staff reporter Danyelle Khmara and unpaid interns Eddie Celaya and Hailey Freeman. They have assembled a guide full of advice (both good and bad, depending on your perspective) for our incoming youngsters.

We also have advice for Ward 3 voters: We encourage you to vote for Paul Durham in the upcoming Ward 3 primary. The reasoning is laid out here.

In The Skinny, we note that Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller decided that when Nazis march in the streets, it's time for her to declare her white pride—"no apology necessary!" WTF is wrong with this woman?

In our music section, we have a killer profile of Terry Trash, who lost an arm and a leg in a showdown with a Union Pacific locomotive and yet continues to embody the spirit of rock 'n' roll greats. He's celebrating an anniversary of playing with his band, the appropriately named Trainwrecks.

A final note: No, Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild is not a momcologist. We put his byline on a recent article by Barbara Anderson, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's local Woman of the Year, who penned an opinion piece for our Aug. 3 edition about healthcare reform. And last week, we accidentally put theater writer Sherilyn Forrester's byline on a story by visual arts writer Margaret Regan. So we've had a few byline issues lately and we now publicly apologize to the mayor, Barbara, Margaret, Sherilyn and you the readers.

We'll do better in the future.

  • Nine Years Later

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been nine years since those gunshots rang out on a clear Saturday morning in Tucson, taking six lives and forever changing many others. This week, associate editor Jeff Gardner writes about how the friends of the youngest victim of the shooting, 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, are honoring her in the year she would have graduated high school.
