Re: Glendale wants state aid to cover 2015 Super Bowl costs.
This should be a no-brainer for the taxpaying citizens of Arizona. The entire state should not subsidize this venture. Glendale never should have bid unless it knew it had the money before putting in a bid.
Do we get free tickets to go? Why should we support the Phoenix area after they took all the other sports team from here?
If they lost money the last time, then why offer to do it again?
Good grief, am I actually in complete agreement with Steve Farley? Amazing. But yes, I don’t see how asking the rest of the state to contribute more makes any sense — the state will already be spending more than comes in as a tax benefit to provide state-level services during the Super Bowl — I don’t want to toss more money in on top of that!
I guess I’m the only one who doesn’t have a problem with it. I love football and would willingly pay extra to help.
Re: Tucson seeks to demolish former Panda Buffet on East Broadway.
The city bought the building for $858,000 in hopes of developing the area and then became a landlord with it. Using taxpayer money to run their own business!? And now they are going to destroy it?
Too big for payday loans and too small for a CVS. What’s a poor building to do?
I think there are plenty of buildings in this town that should be demolished with this one.
They never had panda anyway.
