"I've heard parents literally begging the TUSD board to let their students walk with their graduating class, when they had four years of high school and fulfilled all the requirements, but still had to pass the AIMS.  But legally, the board couldn't allow them to do that.  So that was my first thought on hearing the change," commented Betts Putnam ... read more


2013-05-05

Depending on who you talk to, Charter schools in Arizona were enabled for the purpose of innovating and improving education; or for destroying the public school system.  In an oppositional political system, probably both have some truth - and perhaps both are happening.  Charters undeniably pull students away from district schools.  But can they also benefit districts by developing innovative models that work, that districts can then replicate at scale?

Pamela Cornell is aware of the difficulties faced ... read more

Chen Guangcheng: "Citizens of the world, let your voice be heard in support of justice...The nations of the world should shift their focus from trade to human rights"



Chen Guangcheng, the blind dissident who escaped arrest and now lives in the United States, makes a strong plea for people to speak out, and also directly chides Xi Jinping for not improving justice and openness in Chinese society. Chen Guangcheng's nephew has been imprisoned for resisting a beating and other family members have been targeted as well.  ... read more


2012-12-06Sit Play Stay : Puppy Preschool!

Sit! Stay! Play! reminds me of the preschool my youngest daughters went to, where everything from play materials to how snacks were served was set up with a great deal of forethought.  Sit Stay Play is like that - its not just a kennel.  I found out about it because I needed a place to keep our pups for Thanksgiving, and I wanted them to have a more positive experience than a clean cage.  But you can't just board dogs here - they have to interview, see if they will be a good fit, and also have daycare experience before ... read more

2012-11-06 The Most Important Election Of Them All

An Opinion Piece

by Ken Larsen

Every four years, the people and the punditry of this land piously
assert that that particular presidential polling is the big one, the ultimate
decider of our nations fate, the true history-maker, the most important
election of our time. An irony, to be sure, as typically each election fades in
our consciousness shortly after, replaced entirely in significance by the
upcoming one, the one that will really change and affect our lives forever.
As for myself ... read more


2012-11-05 Voter Cheat Sheets Arizona Election 2012

No more dithering, time to stand up and be counted.  Understanding Props 114 thru 204 (well, ok, there are only eleven of them) may seem confusing and time consuming, but at least a few of them are major power or money grabs, or are essential for funding struggling schools.  So its worth it to figure them out one way or another.

A quick way is to pick someone you trust and vote like they do:

2012-10-23 Oliver Comstock, Tucsons Unsung Hero

by Jim Turner, http://jimturnerhistorian.org

Sporting a pith helmet, linen suit, and big white mutton chop sideburns, Oliver E. Comstock pedaled his bicycle along Tucsons dusty roads with a soup kettle hanging from the handlebars. He will never be as famous as Wyatt Earp, but he was a real hero to Tucsons Tent City residents. Sometimes called Tentville, the community started around 1900 in the desert north of the University of Arizona. There were no street lights or sewers, just low-income ... read more


2012-10-21 Dr Richard Carmona - opinion

Dr Carmona is not your typical Democratic party candidate.  He served under President Bush and was recruited by the republican party to run for office in 2006 (he declined).  He was also a deputy sheriff and was decorated with the Medal of Honor for shooting and killing a man who was threatening others, shot at Carmona and who turned out to have killed his own father that morning.

Carmona's experiences in Bush's administration might have something to do with his now running as a Democrat - he felt that the Bush administration ... read more

2012-09-11 Remembering 9/11 : Firefighter audiotape, dispatcher interview



What is so impressive to me is how calm the firefighters sound on this tape from inside the burning tower.  This is hard to watch, though.  These guys were real heros.


The last call from Flight 93
Interview with Lisa Jefferson, who took one of the final calls from Flight 93.  Todd Beamer, who she spoke to, helped organize the assault on the cockpit by the passengers.

She did not tell him about the WTC attack, but other passengers were told by friends and family.  ... read more


2012-09-11 World Trade Center rising again - but not even memorial immune from dispute

Maybe Tucson shouldn't feel so bad.  Even the 9/11 memorial museum beneath the World Trade Center is mired in dispute over dollars, between the memorial foundation and the Port Authority of NY/NJ.   Sentiment is fine, but money is money - and controlling it is not something anyone is going to give up lightly. Still, the new towers are up and close to complete, and the budget dispute has been resolved for now so that construction can resume.

Dispute puts 9/11 Museum in Limbo

Construction to resume on national 9/11 museum

Rio Nuevo Board and the City Council are perhaps doing the same, finally?  

9/11 is also an important date to remember the victims and heros of that day.  "Roll it" : Cockpit transcript from Flight 93 records the heroism of the ... read more


2012-09-07 Harold Bell Wright: American Best Seller Sells Tucson Climate

By Jim Turner, jimturnerhistorian.org

Few know him now, but Harold Bell Wright was once Americas most widely read author. He wrote for almost three decades and at one point he was even more popular than Mark Twain. Not only known for his preaching and writing, Wright told the world about the curative powers of Arizonas climate.  

Born in 1872 in Rome, New York, Wrights mother died when he was eleven, and he ran away from his alcoholic father a year later. He nearly froze or starved in the winter, worked odd jobs, and survived with the help of strangers.

At age 22 he contracted pneumonia, but also attended a revival meeting; both changed his life. After three years, poor health interrupted his religious studies and he retreated to his uncles farm in the Ozarks to recuperate. He became the local pastor and then his speaking talents took him to larger congregations in Kansas City and Chicago. His autobiographical novel, That Printer of Udells, was published in 1903.

2012-08-30 Time to ask tough questions

Arizona's elephant in the living room is also eating everything in the kitchen.  Our governor's campaign manager is also a lobbyist for private prison corporations who are getting a bigger and bigger slice of the public pie.  Prison expenditures are now 40% higher than spending on universities.  Our legislature rejects proven methods in use in other states that the Grand Canyon Institute estimates would save us between $30 million to $73 million per year on prison spending. And adding insult to injury, in the latest ... read more

2012-08-23 What I wish McCaskill said to Akins:

Ruth Marcus wrote an excellent column about the disingenuous way both Republicans and Democrats responded to Todd Akins offensive remarks about rape victims.  In particular she points out that McCaskill is apparently trying to keep Akins candidacy alive, just because he would be easier to beat, and so responded in a wimpy, mealymouthed way to his ugliness.  Here's what I wish McCaskill said instead:
------------

Should he withdraw because he spoke his mind and voters have begun to realize who he really is and what he thinks?  He's been the same person all along, if you say he should withdraw now then he never should have run.  He's who is is, he thinks what he thinks; I'm who I am and think what I think, and voters have a choice.  To be honest, if I say everything that's really on my mind I'll probably offend some people, and I'm not going to drop out because of that. ... read more

2012-08-20 'On days when a lot of people are killed, the government will just shut down the Internet' ; AccessNow accuses MTN of collaborating with Syrian government

"Our contacts on the ground in Syria have told us that phone and internet service is constantly being throttled, and sometimes it's completely cut off -- just as military tanks roll into a neighborhood. "

https://www.accessnow.org/mtn

Bloomberg reported back in February that MTN disrupted protestors text messages, according to internal sources.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-02-15/syria-blocks-texts-with-dublin-made-gear.html

MTN, based out of South Africa, is apparently worried about the negative publicity, as their PR department contacted AccessNow to ask how to improve their image.   AccessNow responded to them to change their actions on the ground.  If the allegations are true, MTN is cutting off a key lifeline - communication - to protestors who are desperate and in danger.  When Libya was about to fall, twitter ... read more


2012-08-18 Tucsons First Honor Student

by Jim Turner

Its that time of year again. See you in September, as Frankie Vallee used to screech in his Top 40 falsetto back in the Sixties. Back to school means new clothes, school supplies, and often remorse that the summers over. But 140 years ago in the Old Pueblo, one kid loved school but almost became one of Tucsons first dropouts.

Ignacio Bonillas was born in Mexico in 1858, and his family moved to Tucson when he was twelve. Neither of his parents knew how to read, but they wanted a good education for their ... read more
