Tucson Tuesdays

Henceforward, Tuesdays will be dedicated to the beautiful deserts of Southern Arizona. I will comment on the people, the politics, and the public happenings of this growing metropolis of 1,000,000 people that boasts endless sunshine, breathtaking sunsets, and big city amenities in a "small town" environment.

I'm going to start this ongoing series with a challenge for every Tucson resident. Whether you are a young professional, a retiree, a stay-at-home mom, a high school senior, or a baby boomer working in corporate America, I urge you to give to Tucson. We are all responsible for the present and the future of our "western paradise" - and thus we should all be doing something to help. That can, of course, mean by contributing dollars to noteworthy causes, but it also means investing your time and talents to make Southern Arizona a better place.

Over the next few months, I will highlight many opportunities for you to get involved. Here's one easy first step: sign up to be a "Community Voice" on the Tucson Regional Town Hall website. This is your chance to speak up about your wants, needs, and ideas for improving Tucson...
