Citizenship status is always a major issue in Arizona.
Now there’s one less citizen, as the Tucson Citizen has published its final edition.
It is certainly a sad trend, with newspapers countrywide pulling the plug on their presses.
Gannett, which owned the Citizen, had been trying to find a buyer. Management had informed the staff of this a couple months ago. But, with no buyer to be found, there are another 60 or so reporters and other newspaper staffers looking for work.
The Citizen was Arizona’s oldest newspaper.
