Re: “Prop 123, Tucson Area Schools, and Salary Hikes

Wow, if what the above commentator says is true, I had no idea the Master's stipend had been cut (it was still in place when I worked in TUSD). A stipend for a higher degree is standard in most districts, and not awarding it on completion of the degree is a significant enough difference with other districts that you should print a correction to the article. It also sends a message to the teachers, loudly and clearly, that they are NOT valued. No wonder the district is losing them, because that right there would cause an experienced teacher who just earned a graduate degree to jump ship. It shows a reckless lack of foresight on the part of the district, and contempt for the professional expertise of their staff who frankly matter the most. I used to work there and find that utterly disappointing.

Pretty partial to Jason's truck on Wilmot and 22nd.

Re: “Best Fresh-Baked Bread

I've lived in three different cities now since I moved away and haven't had access to as much good bread as close by as I had when I was in Tucson. You're very fortunate.

Re: “The Abbey Is Closed Again (This Time for Good?)

Too bad. I don't live in Tucson anymore, but have nothing but fond memories of that place. Glad I got a chance to eat there one last time this summer.
