State holding lottery for 126 new liquor licenses

The Department of Liquor Licenses and Control is holding a lottery for 126 new liquor licenses this month, following a 2005 legislative mandate to make more permits available to meet growing demand.

The auction, one of five annual sales from 2005 to 2010, is expected to generate significant revenue for the state at a time when it is struggling to close a more than $1 billion budget deficit.

Prices range from $5,000 for a beer and wine bar license in La Paz County to $231,000 for a liquor store license in Maricopa County.

Those interested can apply to the department between April 1 and 24, with the license winners to be announced on May 15.

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
