Re: Arizona House panel OKs allowing school employees to have guns.
Wouldn’t it be great if the politicians were concerned about a quality education for our children and what they can do to aid teachers in that respect?

Finally. It’s about time we use our brains and make some good choices.
If the schools cannot protect a 5-year-old developmentally disabled student from an 8-year-old bully, what good are guns? Personally, as a former teacher, I cannot think of any teacher, administrator or personnel at any site where I taught that I would want entrusted with a firearm on school grounds.
As long as they are very well-trained, I am all for it.
Use military reservists to do their two weeks a year at schools. It’s free and I’m sure they’d be proud to do it.
Just don’t hire that guy named Zimmerman for the custodial position.
Re: Credit and debit card transactions with UA’s bursar will incur a 2.5 percent convenience fee.
What’s convenient about that?
Because over $10,000 in tuition and fees is not enough?
I am just finishing paying for my classes in payments this semester. I’m so frustrated I’ll have to pay more! It’s like they want to put the future leaders of America in debt.
It’s actually illegal to charge a fee to use a credit card. You can offer a cash discount but to charge a percentage is not OK.
I believe this would fall into the alternate mode of payment category, like buying movie tickets online, so is considered acceptable (though reprehensible).
