        A small Arizona tribe with a big business gets detailed admirably by Jeffrey Shepherd
          
            by Tim Hull
          
          
          
            Before the 1850s, Northwestern Arizona's small Hualapai (WALL-uh-pie) Tribe didn't really exist. It was the federal government's idea to join 13 autonomous bands of Yuman-speaking Pai Indians, who had lived on the high, dry plains near Grand Canyon's western reaches for eons, as the "People of the Tall Pines." Before the colonial clampdown and the Hualapai Wars of the 1860s, the Pai bands were independent, though they "followed common rules for marriage and land use, spoke variations of one language,…

        TAMHA 'CACTUS CATFIGHT'
          
            by Linda Ray
          
          
          
            TAMHA 'CACTUS CATFIGHT' PLUSH Saturday, July 31 Drummer-about-town Winston Watson and his daughter, Marcella, didn't choose between Stevie Nicks and Linda Ronstadt, and instead performed their songs one after another. They may have given Phoenician Nicks an edge, though: The duo, augmented by four ukulele players and a guitarist, performed Nicks' "Leather and Lace" straight up—but their arrangement of "I Never Will Marry" borrowed more from the Carter Family's original version than from Tucsonan Ronstadt's collaboration with Dolly Parton.

        The Mountain's format has changed—on paper, if not in reality; Rogers gets gig in Grand Caymans; Schuler makes jump to Orlando

            THE MOUNTAIN'S FORMAT HAS CHANGED—ON PAPER, IF NOT IN REALITY KWMT FM 92.9 The Mountain's radio format is totally different now—but listeners won't notice a thing, because the music on the station has not changed (other than some minor tweaks that involved modernizing portions of the playlist six or so months ago). But listeners today are tuning into a Hot AC station, whereas just a couple of weeks ago, they were enjoying the sounds of an AAA station. You see,…

        Three candidates in LD 26 occupy different parts of the GOP spectrum
          
            by Hank Stephenson
          
          
          
            When Legislative District 26 voters cast their ballots for the House of Representatives in the Republican primary, they'll help determine the direction they want the Republican Party to take. On the far right, running on responsible spending and gun rights, is Tea Party sympathizer Terri Proud. Vic Williams, the incumbent who lies somewhere between the other two, cites the hard decisions he has made in tough economic times. Wade McLean's more moderate platform involves education and his career in the…

2010-08-06 Vogt Whines About the Liberal Media (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2010/08/05/vogt-whines-about-the-liberal-media

        

Ted Vogt, a GOP candidate for Legislative District 30, has a response to one of this week's Skinny items, "Neocon Cash," in which we simply pointed out that he'd gotten $2,200 from Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and others close to them.


Oh, and we pointed out that out of about $22,000 he'd raised for his campaign, he'd gotten less money—a mere $1,670—from actual Arizonans.


Anyway, here's a press release just sent out from his campaign. It needs no further comment.

Representative Ted Vogt had no idea the support he received from former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld would cause s ...read more...

            Dear Mexican: I am a retired gringa living in Mazatlán, Sinaloa. Most of us foreigners here are liberal and sympathetic to the immigration problem, which the U.S. Congress refuses to address in a meaningful way. Unfortunately, I get lots of e-mails from acquaintances "apprising" me of the horrible situation in el Norte, about how all their tax dollars are being spent to educate and provide medical and Social Security benefits (Yes! They say that!) to these "criminals." I used to…
