Arizona's first State Park opening in 1957, Tubac Presidio State Historic Park was first founded by Jesuit, Eusebio Francisco Kino, who established a mission in Tumacacori in 1691, and Tubac became a mission farm and ranch. In 1776, as Juan Bautista de Anza set on his historic journey to found San Francisco, military authorities moved the garrison from Tubac to Tucson, and the unprotected settlers abandoned their homes.

At a recent concert inside Dolby Laboratories, a member of The She's leans into the mic between songs and tells the audience, "I just started school and I'm going to major in math!" There's another anomaly at this show, though: all the bands and sound engineers are women, while the world of audio is a field dominated by men. Addressing and correcting that disparity is the work of Women's Audio Mission , an organization dedicated to teaching audio engineering and technology to young women from low-income communities.

I must have angered the universe with my last happy-go-lucky, things-are-looking-up column because now there is tension, fear, but most of all uncertainty in the air. By that I do mean the election, but I'm not sure that the election alone is at the center of the unease that seems to have touched the development and real estate world locally. Comment?
