Ah Mr. Employer, I ahh ahh smoked pot today but I have a Medical Marijuana Card. You can't see it but I've just looked at it and everything is legal. "You'll just have to trust me on that." Think that'll work for an employer?9 months ago
I don't understand why an accident involving a young boy and an automobile in Gilbert yesterday wasn't reported in the EVT. Apparently the boy, around 8 years old, jumped onto the rear bumper of a moving car and then fell off fracturing his skull in two places and being airlifted to the emergency room. Supposedly the boy had been watching his brothers do the same thing but he fell off. This happened in the East Valley and it is news and I am concerned about the condition of the boy. This could have been used as a teaching experience for other kids.Oct 26, 2010
She was a unique remnant of the old days when Main street was the main street. Bring her back!Oct 26, 2010
As a South Tempe resident, I can not see how this project is going to of benefit to me or my neighbors. One of the charms of Tempe used to be the old town feel of Mill Avenue with the diversity of little specialty shops and casual atmosphere. Well as the franchise businesses moved in all that has changed. Tempe Town Lake is really nothing but an expensive basically useless body of water designed to , _____ _______ _______. you fill in the blanks. I seldom, if ever, go to mill avenue these days. Nothing special. Since we lost the Cardinals and the Fiesta Bowl there's no big crowds to provide income to support any expensive franchised businesses. The Ugly aluminum structures on the "lake front" makes the downtown area less appealing and now a streetcar to clutter one of the main thoroughfares into and out of Tempe is really a masterful waste of taxpayer money. Electric buses that could actually change lanes could serve the same purpose for a lot less money. Sorry Hugh you and the council blew it on this one. I guess I'll continue to avoid Mill if possible.
