Thank You for Reporting on Susan Moreno, Her Battle for Mental-Health Awareness
Thank you for the good article on Susan Moreno and her work with Mentally Ill Kids in Distress (Messina, Aug. 23). She has turned her personal tragedy into a community service, and in doing so has saved many lives and comforted others. Increased awareness about mental illness and recovery is essential. I have heard her speak and am inspired by her gift.
Susan will be presenting a class on mental illness in youth from 10:45 a.m. to noon on Sunday, Oct. 21, at St. Francis in the Foothills Church, 4625 E. River Road. Her talk is included in the four-part series on mental illness and recovery, from Oct. 14 to Nov. 4, at St. Francis. The public is invited to join with us in this important series.

Looking Forward to the Day When the Tea Party Has Returned to the Fringes
Regarding Danehy, Aug. 23: It will be a great day for America when the Tea Party is relegated to its proper place in American political discourse: standing on a street corner, sun-burnt, wild-eyed, holding a crudely lettered sign, and totally ignored by those passing by.
In the Aug. 30 Media Watch, we reported that while some websites focusing on UA Athletics have press credentials, reporters at other websites do not, and don't necessarily want or need the credentials. While what we reported was accurate, it lacked some context. Specifically: It's unclear whether Ace Thakore, of pointguardu.com, would be awarded a press credential by the UA, due to prior run-ins with the university. In fact, Richard Paige, of the UA Athletics Department, says that Thakore applied for credentials at one point, and was denied. However, Thakore adamantly denies that he applied for credentials, and challenged the UA to show proof.
We apologize for the omission.
