Re: “Mysteries in the Mountains

Interesting thing happened to me down in that General vicinity. Have not thought of it in years until I read this story. Sometime in the middle 70s early 80s. I was in Rio Rico working, returning to Tucson crossing the highway overpass from Rio Rico to head north on i-19. There was a hellacious Monsoon storm happening, (I love the wild weather here in Southern Arizona) as I was just beginning to cross the bridge I experienced a very bright light that would have been considered approximately 10 ft off the roadway directly in front of me. Bright enough that it looked almost like a locomotive headlight. Happened in a Split Second and at the time freaked me out a little but didn't think too much about it. I attributed to maybe a lightning Flash. Don't think I even ever mentioned it to anybody. Some years later don't remember what I was reading about, but the term Saint Elmo's Fire came up. When it explained what it was (essentially ball lightning that can happen in strong storm environments) I figured ah ha, that's what it was. Regardless after reading this story and it being in such close proximity to these occurrences I thought it was worth mentioning. The story was a pretty good read in any case the guy who was the narrator did not speak as though he was trying to scam people. Just my opinion.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

I'm inclined to chant ANARCHY ANARCHY ANARCHY ! Tongue firmly in cheek ! 40 years ago I would have felt one way ,today I'm with the majority , da rules is da rules. Although I can empathize with your desire to provide for your kid's , the street fair is no longer a bunch of artsy crafty folks setting up some booths..You could always go to Burning Man.

Re: “Alton Brown Wants You to Tell Him Where to Eat in Tucson

Best kept secret in Tucson , Family owned as long as I'm aware, Karichimaka on Mission rd South of Ajo 5252 S Mission Rd, Tucson, AZ 85746
(520) 883-0311
Best cheese enchiladas / I'm a gringo going here since the middle 70's. Even better than the ones at Crossroads on S 6th- (sauce like a mole sauce). Alton you poor Jamoke ( yes I'm from Jersey) you don't have enough time to sample all the wonderful food available here in Tucson.
Don't waste your time looking for exceptional Italian , there is good + very good but
exceptional ? i'm still looking for over 40 years , although Gavi's when they were on Broadway had very good Veal + Pork Marsala - but hell I can do as well at home. Don't even get me started on the farce of Mama Louisas -blue hairs from Kansas love it.Anyway enjoy your visit.
