Memory Lane

Memory Lane

It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since reporter and author Charles Bowden died at age 69. But even though Chuck—famous for his investigations into the drug trade along the border as well as his environmental writing—is no longer with us, his words are.

Arts, Big and Small

We’ve got a lot of arts in this week’s issue, including Tucson Salvage columnist Brian Smith’s profile of Mario Patino, who creates astonishing miniatures from his memories of growing up on Tucson’s south side.

Silver Screen Spectacular

If you like movies—I mean, if you really like movies—then you might as well request a few days off from work for the Loft Film Fest.

Our Best To You

Here we are again, with our most anticipated issue of the year: Best of Tucson® 2019.

Welcome to the World, Ricky Rose!

Huge congratulations are due to Brian Smith and his wife, Maggie Rawling Smith, for the birth of their first daughter. Little Ricky Rose is happy, healthy and quite hungry, to hear Brian’s side of it.

Folk Yeah!

This week, we feature the latest book from Big Jim Griffith, the famed local folklorist and founder of Tucson Meet Yourself, as well as preview Meet Yourself which takes place this weekend.

Pink of Health

This week, Tucson Local Media is celebrating earning 29 awards from the Arizona Newspapers Association’s annual competition. We also have a special cover section this week dedicated to the battle against breast cancer.

Bursting With Pride

This week, Jeff Gardner gives you the lowdown on what’s happening at Pride this year; Emily Dieckman tells an amazing story about gay adoption; Jamie Verwys gets a kick out of an LGBT-oriented self-defense course; and Lee Allen takes a look at what’s happening with Tucson’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce.

Sanctuary Skirmish

This week we invited Tucson Families Free & Together campaign director Zaira Emiliana Livier to argue in favor of prop 205 and Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik to argue against it.
