1 Phoenix school closes after swine flu case: The deadly virus, which doesn’t come from swine, dominated the news nationally and locally. By week’s end, Arizona had four confirmed cases of the flu – all Maricopa County schoolchildren. Test results in 52 more suspected cases were expected soon.

2 Dupnik: Citizenship checks of students would ease social woes: Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik surprised many when he said checking the citizenship of students when they enroll in school would remove a flaw in border security and could deter immigrants from crossing the border illegally. Such checking now is prohibited.

3 Rethinking versus reloading: My Tucson columnist Bobby Burns said owning a gun is the American way in Tucson, where gun shops can’t keep enough ammunition on their shelves. Burns wasn’t calling for gun control, but some readers suspected he was.

4 Texas QB returning home to play for Wildcats: Matt Brown was born in Tucson, and he is returning as a quarterback. The Allen (Texas) High School standout moved away when he was 3. He will return to play for the University of Arizona.

5 Cops’ efforts cutting crime rates, calls at apartment complexes: When Tucson police threatened to seize apartment complexes where crime was tolerated, landlords paid attention. In four of the six complexes that were infested with crime, owners worked with police to show dramatic reductions. The other two complexes remain works-in-progress.

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
