Our Opinion: A local builder with a big heart

The Fox Theatre will be full Sunday evening, but the 1,200 people inside will be watching a television show – and honoring a very special Tucsonan.

John Wesley Miller, a local builder, is hosting a viewing party for “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

Miller led an effort to demolish a family’s dilapidated home and replace it with a new one – in seven days. The home is for a family with a daughter who has a rare blood disorder.

The viewing party at the Fox, organized by Miller, will honor the volunteers who worked on the home. But it also is a time to honor Miller. The project wouldn’t have happened without the leadership of this builder with a very big heart.

John Wesley Miller is one of those people who make Tucson so special.

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
