Warm days are on the way out with temperatures expected to dip below 100 degrees this week! With the breezes in mind the chill factor will bring us down to a freezing 98 degrees. It’s time to take off the asbestos and let the dog out.

Governor's trip

Governor Jan brewer was in Afghanistan last week where she said she was surprised to learn that war is scary, that people are mad at us and that bad things happen to nice young people in uniform. She plans to return home to Disneyland soon.

Lottery Winner

South Tucson’s $1M lottery winner is a divorced father of three and a convicted drunk driver named Guillermo. He stunned the world by leaving for Yuma, the Riviera of Arizona, where he promised friends he will squander his wealth by next Wednesday and be ready to pick crops in the spring. He said," I hope I can win next year and do it all again!"


If you place an emergency call to the Tucson Police Department you may encounter a slow response time. According to the chief this is due to the bands of wily Apaches still at large in the region who have been cutting the telegraph wires coupled with officer's issues with their unicycles.
