    SIERRA VISTA — A multi-year study examining over a dozen indicators of groundwater discharge into the San Pedro River and riparian area indicates, that in some areas, streamwater and groundwater levels along the river are in decline. The study, conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey, analyzed a series of data sets—including aquifer water levels, streamflow permanence, June wet-dry status of the river and spring discharge—collected over a 10-year span ending in 2012.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans have gained ground on Democrats in registering voters in three battleground states and kept their razor-thin advantage in Iowa — encouraging news for Donald Trump eight weeks before Election Day. Republicans added hundreds of thousands of voters to the rolls since 2012 in states including Florida and Arizona, and narrowed the gap in North Carolina, according to data compiled by The Associated Press. In Iowa, Republicans prevented Democrats from surpassing them, aided by a court ruling upholding a ban on voting by ex-felons, who often register as Democrats. As Election Day approaches, voter registration drives are...

    PHOENIX (KABC) -- Dramatic surveillance video captured the moment a man intentionally crashed into three police officers at a Phoenix gas station, according to officials. Phoenix police said the attack happened at a QuickTrip gas station at about 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday. Authorities said the officers had just completed a call and were standing in the parking lot debriefing the incident when 44-year-old Marc Payne intentionally drove his car into them.

    American Thinker ^ | September 9, 2016 | Bruce Walker
    The GWU Battleground Poll published on September 9 shows Donald Trump a clear path to victory: win the conservative vote. The data in this poll has been consistent over the last two decades, and the data in the latest poll is no different. The overwhelming majority of Americans are self-identified conservatives. The September 2016 Battleground Poll shows that 54% of all Americans are self-identified conservatives and only 38% are self-identified liberals, which means that if the tiny "moderate" 3% and the equally tiny "unsure/refused" 4% are excluded, then the conservative candidate would beat the liberal candidate by a landslide of...

    Literally one day after winning his primary, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) gave up on Donald Trump. In fact, McCain now sounds a bit like he's betting on Trump losing — or, at least, looking like a loser for the rest of the campaign season — to help him win a sixth term in the Senate. In a gauzy, five-minute YouTube video released Wednesday, McCain looks directly at the camera and says: "My opponent, Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, is a good person. But if Hillary Clinton is elected president, Arizona will need a senator who will act as a check — not...

    GOP nominee Donald Trump did not give a rally speech Wednesday night in Phoenix, Arizona. He offered a detailed policy speech to the crowd about his immigration policy. Pretty early on, it was evident those media reports about a “softening” of his immigration plan were way off base. A few hours before his address, Trump met Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in Mexico, where the two offered a cordial joint press conference to reporters. We want to “build a fair relationship between the two countries,” Trump said in Phoenix. Both countries are going to win as a result of his plan,...

    America’s immigration policies must promote “the well-being of the American people,” not the interests of the open-borders lobby, America-hating Islamists, and those who violate the nation’s laws, Donald Trump declared last night. America cannot continue to be the dumping ground for all the world’s problems, was what the Republican candidate for president implied in his address in Phoenix, Ariz., last night. The truth is, the central issue is not the needs of the 11 million illegal immigrants or however many there may be … but whatever the number, that's never really been the central issue. It will never be a...

Coulter got worried when Trump said recently that he was considering a "softening" his stance on illegal immigrants; but her fears...

Jeff Sessions, along with high-ranking Mexican officials, will attend the meeting. Officials expect the two leaders to make some statement following the meeting, but do not expect a full press conference. The trip is particularly historic for Trump in that no previous non-incumbent presidential nominee of a major party has ever travelled to Mexico as part of his campaign.

Ward is McCain’s main primary challenger Tuesday; she has attended Trump rallies and embraced his rhetoric while highlighting McCain’s bipartisan work on immigration bills that would grant undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. “He’s the champion of compromise,” she said of McCain in an hour-long interview in a Scottsdale campaign office, not intending it as a compliment.

    FORT HUACHUCA — The Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation is facing a more than $500,000 cut to recreation programs starting Oct. 1. As a result, DFMWR had to make tough and potentially unpopular decisions to rebalance its assets and make every dollar count. Up to this point, some recreation programs have been subsidized. This is no longer possible and passing along the costs associated with these services is prohibitive, especially within Outdoor Recreation. Outdoor Recreation and the Sportsman's Center will continue all services with the exception of arms rental and ammunition sales, which will end Aug. 28.

Earlier this year Judge Murray Snow held Arpaio in civil contempt for disobeying court orders regarding a lawsuit over racially profiling Latinos during traffic stops. Friday, Snow referred Arpaio, along with Chief Deputy Gerard Sheridan, Capt.

In his civil contempt ruling, Snow said Arpaio "engaged in multiple acts of misconduct, dishonesty, and bad...

Seconds later, Miracle said she felt the barrel of a gun against her neck. The tables soon turned, though, when she retrieved her own handgun and fired on the alleged assailant. “I dropped my soda, released my gun from my holster and cocked it,” Miracle said. “I shot him and ran in the opposite direction.”

The fee, announced in April, appears on the bill for students in the upcoming school term, who already pay $28,000+ in tuition to attend Prescott. (Room, board, and incidentals are extra, of course.) Students can opt out of this fee — but they...

In Arizona, which has only voted Democratic once since 1948, it’s Donald Trump with the slim lead, topping Clinton 44% to 42%.

    Vero Beach, FL - (TRUNEWS) U.S. Senator John McCain recorded a Tokyo Rose-style propaganda message that was broadcast on North Vietnamese radio in 1969. TRUNEWS, a nonprofit Christian digital news app, obtained the bombshell audio recording and released it today on the organization’s daily newscast hosted by Rick Wiles. TRUNEWS acquired the audio recording in cooperation with WeSearchR.com, a new media company founded by Charles Johnson. The 1969 North Vietnamese radio broadcast has never been heard in the United States of America. In fact, there has never been any knowledge that such a recording existed.

    Two no-cost initiatives to honor the service of Reserve and National Guard members are edging forward in Congress, though final passage this year is still far from certain. The more familiar of the two bills would bestow honorary “veteran” status on up to 200,000 Reserve and National Guard retirees who can’t now be called military veterans as defined under federal law. A newer initiative, being pushed by Reserve Officers Association, would make many more former Reserve and Guard members who were called to active duty under support orders eligible for veterans preference in competing for federal civilian jobs.

    The Republican nominee, Donald Trump, has declined to endorse the re-election campaign of the House speaker, Paul Ryan, the highest-ranking member of his party in Washington, as divisions intensified in the GOP. “I like Paul, but these are horrible times for our country,” Trump said in an interview with the Washington Post, a publication that is still banned from Trump’s campaign events. “We need very, very strong leadership. And I’m just not quite there yet. I’m not quite there yet.” The Republican nominee also refused to back Senator John McCain, the party’s 2008 nominee, in his bid for re-election in...
