The treat of chocolate milk
Updated: December 14, 2011 - 11:17 am

When I was a kid, one of my favorite parts of the week was chocolate milk Fridays. We had to suffer through only having white milk with our school lunches for four days, and Fridays was a big treat.

Occupy Tucson doesn’t occupy a point

If you’ve been downtown recently you will find yourself in the midst of a city of tents with a growing population of people participating in the nationwide, Occupy Wall Street movement.

It’s November – Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?
Posted: November 30, 2011 - 4:00 am

When it comes to the big-box stores and retailers, few decisions are made without the marketing research to back it up. This leads one to wonder, when exactly did research show retailers that the American consumer wants to buy and prepare for a holiday months ahead of time?

Illegal removal of redistricting head a partisan power grab
Posted: November 30, 2011 - 4:00 am

In 2000, Arizona voters wisely decided it was time to stop Legislative incumbents from drawing their own districts and unfairly guaranteeing their own re-election. We enacted an Independent Redistricting Committee to return that power to the people, ensuring that politicians have to work to earn our vote.

All cities and towns should ban texting and driving
Posted: November 23, 2011 - 4:00 am

Recently, Tucson City Council members Steve Kozachik and Karin Uhlich proposed banning texting while driving in town limits. If passed, Tucson drivers who deem it OK to multi-task by driving and sending that all-to-important text could be fined hundreds of dollars at a time.

IRC is unbalanced, changes needed now
Posted: November 23, 2011 - 4:00 am

As a member of the Arizona House of Representatives, I would like to express my thoughts on the Independent Redistricting Commission.  For those who do not know, Prop 106 was a voter approved ballot initiative that was passed in 1998 putting the redistricting authority into the hands of an independent commission.  The heart of the initiative was to create an independent body that would act in a non-partisan nature.

“Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.” — Mae West
Posted: November 23, 2011 - 4:00 am

How many times have we heard someone say, “I’m not perfect but I’m basically honest.” It reminds me of an example provided during my ethics training of a man who had loaned $20,000 to each of three friends. The man told his friends that if he died before they repaid him, each of his friends were to put the payment in his coffin.

What’s behind the GOP’s three-step process
Posted: November 16, 2011 - 4:00 am

Most of the rhetoric we’ve heard from Republican Presidential candidates can be boiled down to one theme. They want to take government apart, piece by piece, and move its services over to the private sector, where their rich contributors can make a profit.

Patriot Guard Riders, veterans honor fallen heroes
Updated: November 10, 2011 - 4:03 pm

Most of you know a reasonable amount about Veterans Day. But how much do you know about an organization that was founded in 2005 in response to misguided, reprehensible protests at the funerals of fallen heroes, the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR)?

OV begins delivery of ‘wet’ water in Jan.
Updated: November 14, 2011 - 12:10 pm

As a desert community of just over 40,000 residents, the Town of Oro Valley is a community in control of its own water supply. Not having to depend on any other utility for the allocation of water means we are not subject to handouts and cutoffs. We have control over our growth and water resources.

Marana positioned to excel into the future
Posted: November 09, 2011 - 4:00 am

One of Marana’s strongest assets as a community is that we have created a culture of strategic planning. While we always make sure the services we provide — police, water, parks and roads, for example — are top-notch, we also take time to dream about the town’s future and how we will grow to become a community known for its extraordinary long-term vision.

A gerrymander by any other name 
Posted: November 02, 2011 - 3:00 am

Most reporting about the current redistricting plans for both the Arizona legislature and the nine seats in the U.S. House put forward by the Independent Redistricting Commission failed to cover the system’s obvious flaws.
