Another Pacific storm system will pass just to the north of Arizona today, bringing a chance of snow as far south as the White Mountains. The only thing I expect for us is some wind. Another system will give us a slight chance of showers Monday evening and into Tuesday. Expect warmer weather Thursday.

2009-02-14 Tucson Time Capsule : The serious business of golf (starnet-local)
http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/metro/280202.php
After that serious round of golf known as a pro-am tournament, the celebrities and amateurs like to get together to talk over the day's events. That is when the really serious fun begins, and the Pro-Am Banquet for the 1979 Tucson Open, on Feb. 14, 1979, was no exception. That evening, former President Gerald R. Ford was among those who socialized and talked about their game. Members of Mariachi Cobre, who performed at the event, tried to enlist Ford's assistance in playing a decidedly non-Latin bluegrass tune. That wasn't the only banquet Ford attended during his visit. Read more about the presidential party-going in Tales From the Morgue at go.azstarnet.com/morguetales.

2009-02-14 about time!
Years ago I remember watching a video on television of prisoner who died in restraints in Arapio's jails.  There have been so many incidents since then and just an atmosphere of nastiness and racism.  Its time for this posturing bad-guy sheriff to hit the road.   We need someone who doesn't get off on humiliating and harassing people."
