A local builder with a big heart

The Fox Theatre will be full Sunday evening, but the 1,200 people inside will be watching a television show – and honoring a very special Tucsonan.

John Wesley Miller, a local builder, is hosting a viewing party for “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

Miller led an effort to demolish a family’s dilapidated home and replace it with a new one – in seven days. The home is for a family with a daughter who has a rare blood disorder.

The viewing party at the Fox, organized by Miller, will honor the volunteers who worked on the home. But it also is a time to honor Miller. The project wouldn’t have happened without the leadership of this builder with a very big heart.

John Wesley Miller is one of those people who make Tucson so special.

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
