Parenting tip: Curb underage drinking, alcohol-related deaths

What do you think is the substance abused most often by teens? Pot? Meth? . . . Try alcohol.

Did you know that 40 percent to 60 percent of teen auto deaths during prom and graduation are alcohol related? Or that 47 percent of high school seniors reported drinking in the last 30 days?

Now that you do, you need to do your part. Make sure your teens have safe, alcohol-free prom and graduation parties.

This message is from the New Parents Network and the Pima County Community Prevention Coalition. Visit befreepima.com to learn how to prevent underage drinking.

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
