Ask Boomer: Write on, Young Reporters

Dear Boomer,

I can’t wait to be a Young Reporter. This is a great club. Thank you for letting me join. There’s a whole big world of things to write about. That means I get to travel to all these exciting places to get the scoop.


Dear B.E.T.,

I dig your enthusiasm! Being a Young Reporter is a great opportunity to meet new people and to visit exciting new places. And summer is the perfect time to join so you can report on awesome places, camps and other things that happen during your break.

Get the scoop! Boomer Bear

Dear Boomer,

I want to find out how old you are because most of my friends are always asking me. I also want to ask you what’s your full name. And what is your favorite basketball team. Mine is the L.A. Lakers. By the way, I’m in fifth grade.


Dear J.V.,

My full name is Boomer Bear. I’m 10 and also in fifth grade! Steve Nash, Shaq and the rest of the Phoenix Suns make up my favorite team. A lot of people expect the Lakers will be playing LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. But I’m not sure that the Lakers will make it that far.

Hoops, anyone?

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
