Political Signs

We need to clarify one bit of information about political signs....Signs must be taken down within 3 days after the election (not 3 days "of" the election).  Sorry for the confusion.

Pima County to Open Free Flu Shot Clinic

Beginning September 21, 2020, Pima County and Passport Health will open a new semi-permanent flu shot clinic, located at 6383 E. 22nd St., Ste. 131.  "With the COVID-19 pandemic still very actively spreading in Pima County, it's crucial to get a flu shot before flu starts circulating widely," said Crystal Rambaud, RN, Health Department Vaccine Preventable Disease Program Manager. "Anybody over the age of 4 can get a free flu shot at this clinic, but we really want to see those most at risk of complications from the flu, especially elderly people, low-income people, and those who do not currently have health insurance," said Rambaud. "With COVID-19 potentially spiking again in the fall, we want everyone to get their flu shot, so the clinic will not turn anybody away."  While the location will accept anybody, pre-registration is strongly encouraged to reduce wait times and allow for physical distancing. Walk-ins are welcome, but will be encouraged to register on-site. The clinic will be open Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about flu and to register for your free flu shot, please visit 
Have an Emergency? Now you can text 9-1-1

Communications centers across Pima County have now integrated texting into their 9-1-1 answering system, allowing residents in need of emergency services to reach a dispatcher via text when calling is not an option. The texting option is particularly important to members of the deaf community.  Get the details from the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

Three scenarios...and 3 good solutions

1. The Jewish Elbow
2. The Italian Grandfather
3.  The Irish Blonde
1.  The Jewish Elbow                        
A Jewish grandmother is giving directions to her grown grandson who is coming to visit with his wife.
"You come to the front door of the apartment. I am in apartment 301 . There is a big panel at the front door. With your elbow, push button 301. I will buzz you in. Come inside, the elevator is on the right. Get in, and with your elbow, push 3. When you get out, I'm on the left. With your elbow, hit my doorbell."
"Grandma, that sounds easy, but, why am I hitting all these buttons with my elbow? 
"What . . . .  You're coming empty handed?"

2.  Wise Italian Grandfather
Why Italian Fathers and Grandfathers pass their handguns down through the family.
An old Italian man is dying. He calls his grandson to his bedside, "Guido, I wan' you lissina me. I wan' you to take-a my chrome plated .38 revolver so you will always remember me."
"But grandpa, I really don't like guns. How about you leave me your Rolex watch instead?"
"You lissina me, boy. Somma day you gonna be runna da business, you gonna have a beautiful wife, lotsa money, a big-a home and maybe a couple of bambinos."
"Somma day you gonna comea home and maybe finda you wife inna bed with another man." 
"Whatta you gonna do then? Pointa to you watch and say, 'times up!'"

3.  Irish Blonde
An attractive blonde from Cork, Ireland, arrived at the casino. She seemed a little intoxicated and bet twenty thousand dollars in a single roll of the dice.
She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude." with that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and with an Irish brogue yelled, "Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!"
As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and squealed. "Yes! Yes! I won, I won!"  She hugged each of the dealers, picked up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departed.
The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded.  Finally, one of them asked, "What did she roll?" The other answered, "I don't know - I thought you were watching."
