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.

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.

Re: “Hell Yes!

The "need" for a sales tax increase is due directly to the failure of the Mayor and Council to focus more on the basics, and less on the special interest programs.
How much did the Stone Avenue and Campbell Avenue tree planter project cost, vs simply resurfacing the existing roadway? What need was there to disrupt left turn traffic on those streets?
How many police cars are approaching 200.000 miles, and why was the money not directed to vehicle replacement programs, while the City "leaders" are tossing money to keep empty oversized buses on the streets?
Do you like the way the City spends money where not necessary, while not keeping Fire trucks on the streets? Go ahead and approve this list of shenanigans. If this makes no sense to maintain the status quo, then
VOTE NO ON PROPOSITION 101.

Re: “The Skinny

Selling the guns legally held by the City would add money back into the General Fund, the Police Department, or other cash-starved portions of the City. Why would the Mayor and Council want to help the City by finding sources of cash?

Re: “Editor's Note

I've looked a couple times at the headline on this editorial. One question remains: What is a cadidate?
