Courthouse celebration

Celebrating the Grand Re-opening of the Historic Courthouse

More than 150 government officials, former and current tenants and others gathered Nov. 9 at Pima County's Historic Courthouse for the grand re-opening of the iconic building.
Notably absent was County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry, who continues to recover from injuries he sustained in an Oct. 23 accident, but he was there in spirit as speakers in the video can attest.

Check out photos from the dedication.

The public also can attend a free series of talks and demonstrations taking place Nov. 15-19 at the repurposed Courthouse. Registration is required.

PACC seeking help with its elusive Oak

"Oak" can be used to describe something full of strength and endurance.

That name is quite fitting for a dog that has lived in the Pantano Wash for a year and a half. She's often spotted in the wash area near Glenn Street and Sahuara Avenue.

Learn what Pima Animal Care Center's animal protection officers have been doing to try and keep her safe.
