Is Education the Best Message For Democrats To Boost Voter Turnout?

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 16:06:00 -0700

(image) Maybe it's as simple as a mother saying, "My kids are going to get an education, start a business, earn a good living, make me proud. Education is my priority.…

Interior Department Boss Visits Border Wall

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 13:01:00 -0700


U.S. Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke rode horseback along the border wall in the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge during his first official visit to the border, on March 17.…

SXSW 2018: The Boys Are Back In Town

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 12:20:00 -0700

(image) Our boss, Jim Nintzel, wasn’t wrong when he wrote in his last blog entry that the there’s lots of good girl power vibes at this year’s SXSW. Today, we saw Luna Lee, in all the way from Korea with her traditional (and insane looking) Korean string instrument, the Gayaegum.…

SXSW 2018: Low is an Oasis in the Frenzy

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 11:18:00 -0700


Whereas many outdoor concerts go for being as frantic and in-your-face and attention-grabbing as possible, indie rock outfit Low takes it slow and steady. This was especially clear when they followed-up the electropop freak-out of Superorganism at SXSW.…

AZ Republican Legislators Say No To 17 Minutes of Silence

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 14:44:00 -0700

(image) They were in a political bind on March 14. The Arizona House Republicans could have stood for 17 minutes in silent remembrance of the 17 students killed in Florida and risk angering the Second Amendment absolutists who vote for them, or they could leave and risk showing disrespect for the slain Parkland students and the local students who filled the visitors gallery.

They chose disrespect.

Politicians face damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't situations all the time.…

SXSW 2018: Josh T. Pearson Works with the Chaos of SXSW

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 10:59:00 -0700


Nothing should have worked with Josh T. Pearson’s set at SXSW: He lost his voice the previous night, there were some technical difficulties, he revealed he was working on probably an hour of sleep, and to top it off, his four-piece band was only about three days old. Despite all of these setbacks, Pearson delivered an enrapturing performance.…

SXSW 2018: "Thank You, Music Lovers!"

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 10:44:00 -0700

(image) Los Lobos guitarist Cesár Rosas shouted his thanks across SXSW outdoor stage in downtown Austin: “Thank you, music lovers!”

It’s a city full of music lovers. You can see it in the way that people play their music: During country artist Josh T. Pearson's set (which pretty much broke all of our hearts and put them back together again with every song), every member of the four-person band blurred the lines between human and instrument with their passion.…

Our Future is Marching: Local Students Call for an End to Gun Violence

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 17:51:00 -0700


If the wave of pro gun-regulation youngsters is any indication of what the U.S. electorate will look like in one to five years, the NRA is in trouble.

Across the nation, students protested gun violence on National School Walkout Day—the one month anniversary of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting in Parkland, Florida.…

Laughing Stock: Trenton Davis Jokes In All Colors

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 15:49:00 -0700

(image) Can comedy fans give up vicarious ghetto life and the spotlight earned by their own awkward grip on multiculturalism? Would comics of color let ever resist the abundant comedy fruit of the dominant culture’s heedless racism?…

Arizona Basketball: Dusan Ristic, Rawle Alkins ready for one last Dance

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 11:30:00 -0700

(image) BOISE—Members of the Arizona Wildcats gathered around the semi-circular row of lockers tucked deep inside Boise's Taco Bell Arena, ahead of their final walkthrough on Wednesday.

The fresh-faced cadre of stars assembled in the undersized, sterile locker room will soon do battle with an undersized, scrappy cast from far-away Buffalo, but for now strike a relaxed, confident tone.…

Tucson's Salvation Army Starts Food Drive to Feed Kids for Summer Program

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 11:00:00 -0700

The Salvation Army Tucson sure has a goal for the summer: Feed more than 200 children twice a day—through community donations.

The Salvation Army's “Summer Day Camp” program is partnering with local Safeway and Albertsons stores for a month long food drive. Fom March 15 to April 15 around the entire Tucson area, they will be accepting granola bars, bread, popcorn, crackers, juice boxes and other snacks that children enjoy eating (candy!).…

SXSW 2018: Bring on the Funk—and the Chicha

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 10:14:00 -0700

(image) I don't know if it's just another sign of the political climate or my own poor luck in scouting bands, but I heard a lot of sad and depressing music Wednesday at SXSW. It wasn't necessarily bad music, but it sure as heck wasn't uplifting: Acclaimed bands like Low (at a surprisingly underwhelming NPR showcase at Stubbs) and SYML were just pretty downbeat.…

See Through Another's Eyes as You Walk a 'Mile in a Refugee's Shoes'

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 09:25:00 -0700

(image) To be a refugee is to find oneself in a land that is not their own, with unfamiliar customs and behaviors, while trying to live a new life that is different from the one they are escaping.

Refugees face adverse hurdles in their origin countries and where they settle.…

Maybe it’s Marijuana

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 01:00:00 -0700

(image) Arizona’s anti-marijuana forces have been railing against one of the biggest examples of the plant’s medical efficacy: decreasing opioid addiction. Arizona's anti-marijuana forces have been railing against one of the biggest examples of the plant's medical efficacy: decreasing opioid addiction. The Twitter feed of Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, the organization at least partially responsible for Arizona's last attempt to legalize marijuana in 2016, is rife with claims that opioid use has increased in Colorado and that a study demonstrated a 25 percent decrease in opioid deaths.…

Three of a Kind

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 01:00:00 -0700

(image) The group has given the show a very good production thanks to the three actresses who portray the women referred to in the title. And so it goes. This is the refrain that characterizes a sort of philosophical sense of Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Three Tall Women, currently on stage at The Rogue Theatre.…

Westward Ho!

On St. Patrick's weekend, the Bill Ganz Western Band will play cowboy tunes for "Saddle Up!" a Wild West ballet that debuts at Ballet Tucson's annual Dance & Dessert concert. The cowboy romp—a ballet performed on point, no less—will be danced by the entire company of 32 dancers, the women dressed in checked gingham tutus and the men in jeans and cowboy shirts.…

Wasted Time

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 01:00:00 -0700

(image) Movies this bad should never happen, especially with this level of talent involved. A beloved novel gets absolutely slaughtered with A Wrinkle in Time, a sure contender for one of 2018's worst movies, and an embarrassment for the great talents involved. Madeleine L'Engle's 1962 novel was adapted by Disney once before with an also lousy direct-to-video release back in 2003.…

Taste Over Trend

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 01:00:00 -0700

(image) In the not-so-ornery neighborhood of Winterhaven, there is a food joint that has withstood the ravages of three decades serving up large plates of chuck wagon style grub and, as it turns out, not a whole lot of folk knows that it even exists Visitors have been coming to Tucson for that Old West experience for nearly a century now. It makes sense; this was, and still sort of is, a destination for bravados or those avoiding the expense of living slightly near an ocean.…


Thu, 15 Mar 2018 01:00:00 -0700

Unfortunately, instead of the attention being focused on whether Virginia's stifling defense can lead the Cavaliers to a title or if another dark horse can make it to the Final Four, all the talk these days is on whether college athletes should be paid. Sports have always been a big part of my life. I'm not sure what I would do without sports.…
