Beginning April 7, Tucson Originals will offer hands-on cooking classes every other Tuesday taught by some of Tucson’s best chefs.

Classes will be held from 6-8 p.m. (they culminate in dinner with the chef) at Tucson Wholesale Supply, 4229 E. Speedway Blvd.

Space is limited to 10 participants. Cost for the series of five classes is $750 per person, which includes recipes for the series, notebook, dinner and beverages at each session. Classes are sold as a package, but you are welcome to divide classes with a friend if you can’t attend all five.

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
