Re: “Arizona Women’s Basketball Heads to WNIT Finals After 59-53 Win Over TCU

Glad to see the UofA Women's basketball program finally getting some recognition! I've attended games in the past with my daughter and her maternal grandmother. There were hardly any people in the stands during the games at that time.

Re: “Pima County Road Bonds Failing in Early Returns While Park Bonds Are Headed To Passage

Fortunately, led by stalwart Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller, the forces against passage of the Pima County road bonds have succeeded! Now, all those who voted against the road bonds will quit bellyaching about the condition of the roads in Pima County, and will instead organize giant cookie sales to pay for road construction and maintenance!

Look for it!

Re: “Danehy

I once knew Jonathan Hoffman pretty well when we were both working at the IBM plant in Tucson. He took the "buyout" when IBM offered that to many of their employees in 1988. I always got along well with Jonathan and thought he was a good guy.

Obviously, in the years that have passed since that time, Jonathan has become something of a local champion for conservative politics in Arizona. Unlike one of the previous commenters, I still have my subscription for the Arizona Daily Star. Under the auspices of the Editorial Page Editor, Sarah Gassen, the ADS has added some conservatives to their roster of weekly opinion page columnists including Jonathan Hoffman.

I virtually never agree with Jonathan's columns, but if he provides some different perspectives for readers of the Arizona Daily Star I'm not adverse to his inclusion. In the final analysis the press is not, as Trump often has stated, "The Enemy of the People", it is an institution that truly merits its description as the "Fourth Estate". Democracy will truly whither and die if it passes here in this country.

Re: “But It’s A Dry Rub

I was there on Friday having lunch with my grandson. It was the first time I'd eaten there, and I had a barbeque brisket sandwich. Very good, nice to have a choice for barbeque in a town that isn't really well known for its barbeque!

Re: “That's Not the Ann Kirkpatrick We Know

Gee Paul... I guess you were delighted when Conservatives like James O'Keefe and Project Veritas were creating false news about Planned Parenthood and other targets of the Right Wing. Talk about a "party of fraud", you're living in a delusional world if you think the Democrats are the ones creating fraudulent "news"!

Re: “Fourth Avenue's Ordinary Bike Shop Is Closing Down

Sorry to see them go, I haven't had occasion to shop there recently, but I certainly have had them as a source of parts and repairs in the past.

I think this leaves Transit Cycles as the best source of bikes and equipment for urban cyclists in Tucson.
