Pusch Ridge dominates overmatched Warriors

Pusch Ridge dominates overmatched Warriors

Posted:

For Pusch Ridge the challenge this week was not winning their game against Baboquivari, but doing so with good sportsmanship and humility. The Lions beat an overmatched Baboquivari squad 48-0 and had the challenge of playing hard, but not upstaging an opponent that does not have the depth to compete.

    The result of 20 years of leadership in Pima County

    In her recent opinion column to The Explorer, District 3 Supervisor Sharon Bronson failed to address the accomplishments of her almost 20 year tenure as a Pima County Supervisor. Meanwhile, she suggested the condition of our roads is the fault of a Supervisor in office less than 2 years. While this clearly demonstrates Bronson’s unwillingness to take responsibility, the board majority’s lack of vision and urgency regarding road repairs for the past two decades is certainly no secret to the rest of us.
