City of Phoenix Talk Transportation
The city of Phoenix is inviting you to talk transportation! The website talktransportation.org is a project of the Phoenix Public Transit and Street Transportation Departments, and is a main way for the public to get involved in the future of transit service and city street infrastructure. The ideas generated from talktransportation.org will be reviewed by the Citizens Committee on the Future of Phoenix Transportation and incorporated into a citywide transportation plan that is slated to go before the Phoenix City Council by the end of the year.
Your input is vital to keep Phoenix moving. Join the conversation on the best ways to improve bus, light rail, and services for seniors and people with disabilities. Your feedback will help us set service priorities for the future and determine how to fund transportation in the city of Phoenix. You can also win rewards for participation, including one-of-a-kind activities with city leaders, gift certificates to local businesses, upcoming event tickets and more.

Tuscano Elementary Thanked for Supporting Troops in Afghanistan
The students and faculty of Tuscano Elementary School were thanked for sending nearly 100 pounds of “backpack ready” snacks and hundreds of letters to troops stationed in Afghanistan this past spring.
Tuscano was given by the Mission Commander, Major Robert Cyr, an American flag which was “carried in the face of the enemy…during a Special Combat mission – in the winds of freedom, illuminated in the dark by the light of justice, over the compound of our nation’s leading Task Force…during Operation Enduring Freedom.”
Tuscano will proudly fly this flag on the first day of the school, August 4th, to honor those that continue to serve in our armed forces over seas.
Mr. Mannelly, the school’s principal, commented, “I’m so very proud of Tuscano’s students and staff. We are truly honored by this. As a community, we can’t take for granted the freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis and those that have the courage to serve our country.”
The flag and certificate will be on displayed in the school’s library for students to see, following the first week of school.
