Children made the news regularly in 2008, during such major Tucson annual events as the Fiesta de los Vaqueros rodeo in February, fun school activities and not-so-fun activities, as during several vaccination clinics prompted by the spring measles outbreak.

As 2009 begins, we look back in photos at some of those kids being kids.

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
