Samantha Visbal, 15, wins library video short competition

Young Tucson filmmaker Samantha Visbal, 15, is the winner of Pima County Public Library’s Summer Video Shootout for her entry, “Something Wicked”.

The library announced Visbal’s win last week. Twenty Pima County youths received training and mentoring during the summer to create short films as a part the program, which encourages youth voices, creativity, participation in the arts and literacy, according to the library.

Through workshops and mentoring, each participant wrote, directed and edited a short video about books or the library. The videos premiered at The Loft Cinema, where each teen spoke about the program and answered questions from the audience.

Participating were The Friends of the Pima County Public Library, Pan Left Productions, Kino Weed and Seed and The Loft.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
