Meet your NABUR: Jim Berg

Over the past couple of years, Sahuarita Unified School District bus driver Jim Berg has regularly written a column for the Sahuarita Sun about his experiences on the job.

I recently had the chance to interview Berg as a part of our "Meet Your NABUR" series. He talked about his passion for the job, the memorable moments he's had over the years and made a surprise announcement about his plans for the future.

So, without any further ado, meet your NABUR Jim Berg, or, as the students call him, Mr. Jim.

Tortoise garden at Wrightson Ridge School is used to educate students

Sahuarita Unified School District recently unveiled its first tortoise garden at Wrightson Ridge School.

The purpose of the garden, which houses two sulcata tortoises donated by a student's family, is to teach students about tortoises and how different ecosystems work.

Reporter Jamie Verwys describes how the tortoise garden plans came about, how the students are involved in caring for the tortoises, and what you can do to help out in this article.

Do you think caring for the tortoises will be a good learning tool for the students?

In her latest article, reporter Brianna McCord breaks down how generational lifestyle changes have filled thrift store shelves with fine china.

Do you have fine china, and do you plan on passing yours down to family? Or, have you given up your fine china for others to enjoy?

Friends in need

 

Meet Bubbles and Leo.

Bubbles is a large dog in a smaller package. He is a 4-year-old black and white Staffie mix who is bubbly by nature, walks nicely on a leash, and loves car rides. Bubbles has made lots of friends at the kennel but would love to go to a home of his very own.

Leo is an 11-year-old chihuahua mix who came to the kennel when his former owner moved away and couldn't take him with her. When his owner gave him away to a friend, the friend's dog wanted nothing to do with him. Leo enjoys naps, is comforted knowing someone is close by to take care of him and comes with vet care support for life. He misses his former owner and the two cats he lived with and would love to find someone to enjoy the simple things in life together.
