Blue Ridge beats Payson to keep Longhorns' 3A East volleyball title celebration on hold October 26, 2016
Today is the final deadline for re-registration for Independents wishing to cast a vote in the upcoming Presidential Preference Election. NO Independents will be allowed to vote in the election on Mar. 22.
To re-register in order to be able to vote, an Independent voter can go to www.servicearizona.com and temporarily choose to register as a Republican or Democrat. A driver's license number will be needed to re-register. After the Mar. 22 Presidential Preference election, the voter can re-register as an Independent and will be able to vote in the other upcoming elections. I believe it is also possible to go to the DMV and re-register there if one is not inclined to use the Internet.
I will be in front of the Library today from 2-3 pm for anyone who would like to sign the petiton to recall Diane Douglas. 978-2266
Long lines at checkout lanes, with no new ones being opened prevent me from being a regular shopper at Basha's. Safeway has friendly, helpful employees and they open a new checkout line if there are more than a couple of people in line. Also, the "Just 4 U" app for Safeway saves me lots of money.
If you would like to sign a recall petition for Diane Douglas, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction, please contact me. Kathryn 928-978-2266
A few of the reasons to recall Diane Douglas:
She lacks a concern for students. Diane Douglas is currently blocking state investigators from externally accessing information about teachers who have broken the law to determine whether or not they pose a danger to students in the classroom. By making their jobs more difficult, she is risking the safety and well-being of millions of students.
She lacks a plan for improving education. Diane Douglas has put forward no plan for how to improve education in Arizona. Instead she has focused on a petty struggle for power with the State Board of Education, wasting over $60,000 in the process.
She lacks honesty, integrity, and transparency. Diane Douglas constantly dodges questions, avoids interviews, and shows contempt for the media. Her administration recently held up a program which helps 3rd graders learn how to read because of a feud with the State Board of Education. She only allowed the program to resume when the actions of her administration were leaked to the media.
Update? This vote took place over a year ago- March of 2013. But it is recirculating as an email again.
Snopes and truthorfiction.com both verify the results of investigative journalists like the one Don included in the second part of his post. But Snopes doesn't go along with the list of prices- in fact, after the chart, it says,
"This chart is of dubious accuracy and has little relevance (other than an inflammatory one), as far more goes into the retail pricing of drugs than the raw cost of their active ingredients. Pharmaceutical companies expend money on the research and development costs of creating the drugs, plus the overhead costs of manufacturing, marketing, and shipping them; as well, pharmacies must sell drugs for more than their wholesale prices in order to cover the overhead costs of store operations (including pharmacists' salaries)."
So you can still trust Snopes, but not other's posts- always good to check them out for yourself.
Thanks, John~ Here is the part added to the resolution I quoted~ It had the word, "ADDED, " before the section B.

Representative Jeff Dial didn't come to the graduation. It was Representative Ethan Orr, from Tucson, who spoke. And no mention of the outstanding speech by graduating student, Jackie Ballam?
