‘ “Star Trek” has done more to inspire science than your museum show can ever do.’ blythechris

Citizen Staff Writer

The story: The University of Arizona will suspend building a combined UA Science Center and Arizona State Museum downtown until the national and state economic crises ease.

Your take: An indefinite suspension would suit many members of the Citizen’s online community, such as errorzona, who wants the project “cancelled completely.” Some representative comments:

• “Good news . . . . UA can re-focus on teaching and research. The City of Tucson can focus on basic municipal services (potholes) and viable economic development.” Red Star

• “For a place that is supposed to be a place of higher learning, UA needs to go back to school. It seems everything they do is wrong.” Burta

• “I’ll be contrarian. Build the museum/science house . . . and shut down the politikal science department (that’s not a misspelling).” NevadaDemocrat

• “You must have a viable downtown to have a great city . . . it is critical to the success of Tucson.” Believe

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
