Surprise transit needs

Surprise city officials continue to gather public input as they work on solutions to the area’s transit troubles.


The city will keep conducting surveys until they reach a number that they can point to and say “see people want to spend millions on a bus line.” Mark my words. The recent National Citizen Survey showed it was not a priority. Stop trying to make it happen. — Joseph Baga


Adventure in his blood

Avid reader Karts Huseonica took his Daily News-Sun and Sun City Independent with him on a hike of the Arizona Trail. He is also featured in Bear Grylls’ show “Face the Wild.”


So proud of our brother, Art “Karts” Huseonica as he is close to finishing another major adventure! Plus, his episode with Bear Grylls’ “Face the Wild” aired this week and was awesome! Watch on Facebook! — Sherryl Huseonica
