Our opinion: Downtown has a new hot spot

Recent news about downtown Tucson has ranged from uncertain to grim. But there are bright signs, and one of the brightest is Maynards Market.

The market in the Historic Depot, 400 E. Toole Ave., is a project of Hotel Congress owners Shana and Richard Oseran. They also own Maynards Kitchen, a restaurant in the depot.

Maynards Market has been open for only two months but has developed a loyal customer base. Shoppers come for the local products that are carried.

“People are really yearning for something to happen downtown,” Shana Oseran said this week.

Indeed they are. And that gives downtown redevelopment efforts a built-in fan base. Maynards is showing that downtown is happening.

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
