Ask Boomer: It’s time to pursue other interests

Dear Boomer,

I have a huge crush on this guy at school. I know he doesn’t like me, and I’ve even told him that I like him. (But) he won’t give in. What should I do?

Sincerely, Z.B.

Dear Z. B.,

Reality check! Even though you’re head over heels for this fella, it’s not gonna change how he feels about you. I know this is a big-time disappointment, but you really need to take a step back and pursue your other interests.

Friends always, Boomer Bear

Dear Boomer,

I’ve dreamed about going to Sea World and Disneyland. I can see myself riding on the back of a giant whale or dolphin. That would be so exciting! I’ve heard so much about the Mickey Mouse Club. Meeting Donald Duck or Goofy would make my day.


Dear B.T.,

You’ve got a great imagination and could probably make a heckuva commercial for southern California’s tourism office! After school lets out for summer, lots of families head for San Diego (Sea World) or Anaheim (Disneyland) to escape the Arizona heat.

If your family doesn’t have the money or time for such a big trip, there are lots of cool places nearby like Mount Lemmon. I think my family is driving up to the White Mountains for our vacation. Good luck with the rest of the school year!

Your buddy, Boomer

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
