Complex "red tagged" by TPD for next 120 days

Red-stickered apartment units and poor management are contributing to UA students' dissatisfaction with living conditions at Jefferson Commons - a complex that is geared specifically toward college living.

Apartment units and UA students living in Jefferson Commons, 850 E. Wetmore Rd., are being branded with red stickers for violating city of Tucson code of ordinances section 11-140 titled "loud or unruly gatherings unlawful." The ordinance states, "An unruly gathering is a gathering of five (5) or more persons on any private property, including property used to conduct business, in a manner which causes a disturbance of the quiet enjoyment of private or public property by any person or persons, and shall be unlawful."

Light poles in front of a unit that are slapped with stickers indicate all the apartments have violated the city ordinance. Individual apartment windows, the swimming pool and the computer room have also been tagged with the neon-orange stickers.

Jefferson Commons' management could not be reached for comment.

Jennifer Hunt, a management information systems junior living in the complex for the consecutive second year, said the increase of red stickers is probably because of Tucson Police Department's stricter enforcement of drinking laws.

Not helping with landfill clean up is irresponsible

As children, we were taught a few simple rules that have remained true throughout our lives. Among them was clean up messes you help make. That lesson, simple as it seems, has been applied many times on the international, national and local levels. The Nazi party, for example, and modern-day Germany were forced to pay for the horrible crimes they committed against more than 10 million people earlier this century. In the 1980s, Exxon (now the Exxon Mobile Corp.) spent hundreds of millions cleaning up after their oil spill off the coast of Alaska.
