Each year, we hold a Cover Dog Search to benefit the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, and to give canines and their human companions a chance to mix, mingle and meet our celebrity judges (which this year included Tina Jennings from KGUN’s Morning Blend; Kristi Tedesco KVOA News4 anchor; singer/songwriter LeeAnne Savage and Tucson Lifestyle Executive Editor Scott Barker).
It’s always a tough decision to choose a winner from the more than 200 wonderful dogs that show up, but this year we found one that stood out as a story of courage, compassion, and forgiveness. You’ll meet Hudson on page 44 and read his inspiring tale. Be sure to go to www.TucsonLifestyle.com to see more great photos of the dogs that attended the search.
In honor of Mother’s Day, our In Health story focuses on women’s health issues. We asked Elena Acoba to speak with local experts to discover the latest about diagnostic tools and treatments. Her report begins on page 48.
Speaking of Mother’s Day, five women in our community will be honored on May 13 as part of the annual Remarkable Celebration event. Read about the honorees and the festivities on page 54.
As the social and performing arts seasons wind down, there’s still plenty to do around town. Why not drop by one of the many fun restaurants that feature live music? We visited five that include a broad range of musicians and cuisine. Turn to page 77 to see which eateries we selected and what they have to offer.
And regardless of what type of legal services you are seeking, chances are you can find it on our list of the Best Lawyers in Tucson (compiled by Woodward/White Inc.), starting on page 56.
