Slither on over to class on snake safety

Anyone looking for a slithering fun and educational time can find it Wednesday at the Northwest Fire Station 34, 8165 N. Wade Road.

Fire Capt. Adam Goldberg will give a snake demonstration from 10:30 to 11 a.m., according to a news release from the fire department.

Goldberg will help explain how snakes benefit the desert and how to help keep rattlesnakes out of the yard.

People who need a snake removed from their property should call 911 or a pest control service.

“No one without proper training should pick up a rattlesnake, even a dead one,” the release said. “Reflex bites are possible from a snake that has been dead several hours.”

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
