Paul's Note - April 8, 2022

Julius Holt, who was the long-time leader of Tucson Youth Football and an American Youth Football Hall of Famer, passed away Monday morning. 

I had some chats with him about how the city could work with TYF to make the program better for Tucson’s young athletes. His suggestions and help were a big part of the improvements we made to Jesse Owens Park, which have benefitted not only football players, but youth soccer as well. 

Half-Staff Notification

Individuals, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to join in this tribute.

This is Rodeo Week in Tucson, a long standing sporting event in our community. This week, we saw another long-standing sports event which involves fifth, sixth and seventh grade athletes. 

Roskruge classic is a 39 year tradition in Tucson. It is a middle school basketball tournament that is free to all kids who participate.

When I was growing up, my friends and I would stop by a store near the neighborhood for sodas and snacks. It was run by a Holocaust survivor named Walter Feiger. 

Mr. Feiger was imprisoned at several labor and concentration camps in Poland during World War II before he was liberated by Soviet troops. His travels landed him in Tucson in 1970. He loved it here. He often said that Moses picked the wrong desert.

We’ve had three major disturbing incidents of vandalism in our ward over the last month, including two targeting schools this week. 

We had vandalism to both maintenance buildings at recreational facilities at Jesse Owens Park, followed by arson at Tucson Country Day School this weekend and criminal damage and attempted arson at Kellond Elementary on Monday night.

Last year, we had a situation with a well site in the Palo Verde Park neighborhood. It was basically an empty piece of hardscape that was an invitation to illegal dumping. The fact that it was hard-packed earth also meant that rain would run off of it and damage people’s property. Still, the neighbors wanted it to remain open. They had used it as a dog run for years and wanted to keep it that way.
