2009-02-26 Temple Rentals
http://www.arizonatheatre.org
Built in 1927, the Temple of Music and Art is a proper cultural arts venue. When the Temple first opened, just visiting the place was considered an event. We feel it’s safe to say the building has upheld its reputation. Constructed in an elegant, Southwestern style, the Temple breathes grace and class with its beautiful surroundings of cobbled stone, fountain–splashed patio, and quiet tree-lined street. Now home of the Arizona Theatre Company, the Temple has been called “one of this city’s most elegant buildings” by Tucson Weekly (1995).

The spacious Alice Holsclaw Theatre with its 623 seats is a marvelous place to see either Shakespeare or concerts. There truly isn't a bad seat in the house: Sightlines are good from every location, there's plenty of leg room, the acoustics are great an ...read more...

2008-12-06 Tucson Time Capsule : Livengood's start at UA (starnet-local)
http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/metro/270429.php
On Dec. 6, 1993, University of Arizona President Manuel Pacheco announced that Jim Livengood would be the new athletic director. He was offered a three-year contract worth about $390,000 in base salary, with a clause in his contract that would be worth an extra six figures annually. Livengood, from Washington State University, was replacing Cedric Dempsey, who left to become executive director of the NCAA. At a press conference, Livengood said: "As we enter the next era, we need to look at endowments and hope that in 15 or 30 years people will look back and say, 'Gosh, back in the early '90s (the UA) was able to get a handle on endowments and those type of things.' "
