Ask Boomer: Go your own way till friend comes around

Hey, Boomer!

I need advice . . . and I mean BIG advice! My friend has changed overnight.

She’s acting all snobby now. And I’ve tried talking to her, but she just says, “What are you talking about?” And she doesn’t talk to me at all.

She’s best friends with this other girl, and whenever I hug my boyfriend, they make gagging noises! What kind of friend is that?

Seriously, Boomer, I need help fast!

Sincerely, R.A.

Dear R.A.,

It’s almost like someone flipping a light switch – kids around your age change how they act, what they like and even who their friends are. But don’t give up hope, your friend may come around someday.

Give her some space and focus on your other friendships and other things that are important to you!

And if she’s too immature to be around you and tu amigo, maybe you should find other classmates to hang with.

Friends always,

Boomer Bear

Dear Boomer,

Why doesn’t (President) Obama come to my school to talk about the economy?


Dear K.A.,

Visiting schoolkids is high on the president’s list whenever he travels around the country.

But I think you need to invite him and give him some compelling reasons why he should make a stop at your terrific school the next time Air Force One makes a stop in Arizona!

Good luck, Boomer Bear

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
