Take your unwanted papers/documents to Mansfeld Park (4000 N. 4th Avenue) on Saturday September 21st. First box free, second box $5, but that fee benefits good causes as well. Most of us hopefully are now re-using our paper by printing on the back sides, or recycling it in our blue City bins, or shredding documents we can’t recycle due to fear of identity theft.

I’ve been to this open house in the past, toured a few vintage motor court motels on Oracle Road (ie. La Siesta Motel), and even walked the Evergreen Cemetery on local historian Ken Scoville’s tour – fascinating to see the gravestones of famous Tucsonans, and hear about what Tucson was like in the 19th and 20th centuries.
