Plan on hold for comments on proposed Az quarter

The Associated Press

Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano will put off a plan to seek public input on what design to use for Arizona’s state quarter until Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson signs off on five designs under consideration. The Governor’s Office had hoped to launch a public-input campaign in time for Statehood Day on Wednesday.

Arizona’s five finalists have been narrowed to options featuring the Grand Canyon, the saguaro cactus and Navajo code talkers.

In New Mexico, one idea was to feature a mushroom cloud depicting the first nuclear explosion in 1945. Another featured a UFO. Neither was a finalist. All four finalists feature the Zia sun symbol over an outline of the state.

New Mexico became a state a few weeks before Arizona. Both were admitted in 1912. Only Hawaii and Alaska were admitted later.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
