Tall, muscular Egyptian seeking ideal match

A tall, muscular Egyptian is looking for the perfect match.

Ideal person will have a large yard, fun-loving nature and a sense of humor.

The mystery Egyptian is the massive Sphinx, the only statue left at Magic Carpet Golf, 6125 E. Speedway Blvd.

The rest of the concrete giants have found new homes, thanks to Tucson artist Charlie Spillar. Spillar was recently honored by the Mayor and City Council for his statue adoption efforts.

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
