          Ask any Joe off the street what he knows about early-childhood development, and you're likely to face a blank stare. So it's understandable that a state program, created to disburse funds for that very purpose, would draw a concentrated crew of the relatively few people who do have knowledge about early-childhood development. It's likewise logical that some folks might consider this crew just a bit too cozy. Among the latter is Mimi Gray, executive director of Community Extension Programs Inc.,…

          Darren Hoff sure can play him some country music. Actually, the sound of Hoff and his Austin-based band, the Hard Times, is a blend of Bakersfield-style honky tonk, some outlaw twang and hefty doses of alt-country and jangly Americana. A veteran of nearly a decade in the rootsy country act Weary Boys, Hoff is back in action and understandably proud of his new band's independently-released debut CD, Darren Hoff and the Hard Times, which came out late last year.

        The young contemporary performers of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet strive to move the form forward
          
            by Margaret Regan
          
          
          Seia Rassenti was boarding a van in Chico, Calif., last week, en route to Davis, the next stop on the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet tour. "I'm just in my first year with the company, and I love it!" Rassenti said by cell phone as she took her seat among the dancers. "The base is ballet, but it has a contemporary focus. It's great for me." The 22-year-old native of Tucson is one of just 10 dancers in the all-star/no-star company,…

        Remembering Valerie McGregor, a young champion gone far too soon
          
            by Tom Danehy
          
          
          We're coming up on four years now since Valerie McGregor died, and the memories are as painful as ever. I didn't know her all that well. I had watched her and her fraternal twin sister, Emily, compete in track meets for Marana Mountain View High School against my son's Amphi team. I even wrote a cover story about them for this paper ("Track Twins," May 8, 2003). The twins were most entertaining—goofy, fun-loving, silly. But they had a competitive streak…

          Maybe you've never connected with the whole "Zen of golf" thing, or perhaps the idea of having a meal at a golf course clubhouse leaves you cold. Well, dining at Catalina Barbeque Co. and Sports Bar—located at the ninth hole of the Starr Pass Golf Club's Coyote Course at the J.W. Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa—might change your mind (at least about the dining part). At first glance, there's nothing about the restaurant that indicates "barbecue." The view out…

An inebriated man disturbed his neighbors with odd behavior and his loud, liberal use of the F-word, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report. After three complaints of unreasonable noise at an apartment complex, the reporting deputy went to the apartment being complained about and stood outside the door for five minutes. Although he had earlier spoken with the resident—who claimed he was merely watching TV by himself—the deputy…

          As it stands now, a sweeping conservative revolution could turn Pima County's Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan (SDCP) into a useless document, rather than the popular vision on how to both develop in and protect the desert that it is today. Carolyn Campbell, a local environmentalist who helped craft the county's growth and preservation guidelines, says she fears that the only reason the plan has remained relevant is because of the three Democratic votes on the Pima County Board of Supervisors.…

            by Dave Devine
          
          
          Incorporating a large 21st-century structure into a historic setting can be a daunting task. Two local proposals offer contrasting solutions to the challenge—but both a student-housing project near the UA and the new headquarters of Tucson Electric Power have their critics. "There are different philosophies," says architect Bob Vint about designing a modern building that is surrounded by historic architecture. "One is to try and blend in by matching what's there. That approach is favored by many local historic districts,…

          PASS THE SALES TAX, AND SAVE JOBS! UA economists told us last week that the state will save more than 13,000 jobs if voters pass a temporary, one-cent sales tax increase on May 18. An analysis done by UA Eller School of Management economist Alberta Charney notes that passage of the sales tax would not come without consequence. Assuming that people will buy fewer goods if the cost is 1 percent higher, Charney estimates that up to 7,400 jobs coul ...read more...
