    17 dead in a school shooting in Florida. It's even harder to comprehend when you literally count up to that number...17 lives lost and so many more destroyed. Invariably our leaders in Washington DC will likely do a moment of silence on Capitol Hill. The sad truth is silence is precisely what we don’t need.

    The Tucson Unified School District said it fired the long-term substitute who was in charge. The violence is bad enough. But TUSD's having to rely on long-term substitutes only underscores the problems we have in Arizona about hiring teachers.

    It’s clear, he deserved to go given the nature and the allegations, which involved multiple women.  But what is even more disturbing is that House leadership did not automatically consider a vote to remove him at first.

    After a three-day shutdown, the federal government is back at work.  But ONLY BECAUSE once again, our lawmakers have passed a temporary solution and kicked the can ie: difficult issues including DACA, down the road.

    Right out of the gate – the University’s legal eagles have already made their best play in making sure Sumlin’s contract had a built-in protection to prevent what happened when the University let Rich Rodriguez go.

    In it I asked for you to sound off, one way or the other about recreational marijuana in Arizona. I asked because there is a group intent on getting that item on the ballot this year in our state.

    Aside from the ball drops and the fireworks signaling a new year -- 2018 also meant the start of recreational marijuana sales in California. Voters there were apparently not in a haze and thought the state could really use the estimated $1 billion in tax revenue – and that’s this year alone.
