Cutting Teacher Compensation and School Funding in Wisconsin

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 15:27:00 -0700

(image) Does cutting the power of teacher unions, cutting teacher salaries and reducing tenure and seniority rights— all ingredients in the conservative recipe for educational success—make for better education? Let's take a look at Wisconsin, one of the country's experiments in conservative governance.

In 2011, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed a bill that reduced the bargaining rights of K-12 teachers as well as other government employees.…



Grease Trap Fever! County Collecting Grease in January

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 14:00:00 -0700

(image) Do you have a heaping helping of grease laying around your house and have an unrelenting need to get rid of it?

Well, if so then you're in luck, as Pima County's Wastewater Reclamation Department is hosting its 13th annual Grease Collection and Recycling event at spots across the county on Jan. 6.

Steve Bannon Beats the Drum Against Undocumented Immigrants in Tucson Appearance

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 10:41:00 -0700

(image)
Ralph Terry was shocked when he heard there would be protests over Steve Bannon being the keynote speaker and award recipient at the Brian Terry Foundation annual award dinner.

The Foundation chose Steve Bannon as keynote speaker and recipient of the Brian Terry Courage in Journalism and Reporting Award because of Breitbart’s reporting on “Operation Fast and Furious,” a botched U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms gunrunning investigation into the movement of guns to Mexican drug cartels during which U.S. officials lost track of the guns.

Brian Terry was a Border Patrol agent who was shot in 2010 while looking for members of a suspected drug cartel. A semi-automatic rifle recovered at the scene was tracked back to a gun lost during the Fast and Furious investigation.

The Foundation is not a political group, said Ralph, the foundation’s president and Brian’s uncle.…

Between trying to avoid the El Tour de Tucson route, hanging out with (or protesting against) Steve Bannon—and maybe his local, exclamation point-loving brother—and everything else this sunny city has to offer right now, I can't image anyone is going to have much time to hang out at home and watch movies with their cats.

... but just in case you do manage to squeeze in a few low key hours at home, here are the top 10 rentals at Casa Video right now:
