    PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona man facing a terrorism charge for brandishing a knife in an encounter with a sheriff's sergeant was carrying out a "lone wolf" attack, authorities said Thursday. Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone said at a news conference that 18-year-old Ismail Hamed of Fountain Hills told a dispatcher before the Jan. 7 attack that he had an affiliation with a terror group. Hamed was previously charged with aggravated assault for allegedly throwing rocks at the sergeant ...

    Phoenix police on Saturday were investigating reports of a sexual assault after a woman who has been hospitalized in a vegetative state for the past decade gave birth. The woman, who was incapacitated in a drowning incident, was a patient at Hacienda Healthcare when she went into labor on Dec. 29 and delivered a baby boy, according to local media. No one knew she was pregnant and healthcare staff were initially unsure why she was moaning, the reports said. "This matter is currently under investigation by the Phoenix Police Department," Sergeant Tommy Thompson told Reuters when asked about the media...

    A woman who has been comatose for at least a decade gave birth in a Phoenix nursing facility Dec. 29, sparking a police investigation into possible sexual abuse. Her caretakers had no idea the woman was pregnant “until she was pretty much giving birth,” a source familiar with the situation told CBS 5. “From what I’ve been told she was moaning. And they didn’t know what was wrong with her,” the source told CBS 5. The baby boy is healthy, but the mother remains in a vegetative state caused by a near-drowning incident years ago. The patient had around the...

    A Phoenix woman reportedly sent a man she met on a dating website more than 159,000 texts – including one stating that she wanted to turn his kidneys into sushi. According to police documents obtained by the Arizona Republic, Jacqueline Ades allegedly sent the man the messages over the span of nearly 10 months. She had originally been accused of sending him more than 65,000 text messages but the number was reportedly more than double that. The arrest records listed the woman as “showing signs of mental illness,” the newspaper reported. Ades reportedly met the victim, a Paradise Valley man...
  • ADOT spends $155M for Phoenix-to-Vegas highway link, but what about Tucson?

    Tucson.com ^ | September 10, 2018 | Joe Ferguson, the Arizona Daily Star
    The Arizona Department of Transportation continues to make plans for the fabled Interstate 11, announcing a $155 million investment into the stretch of highway from Phoenix to Las Vegas. The plans, for what is now known as U.S. 93, have been in the making for years, with several more to go. Meanwhile, the nerve-rattling, headache-inducing, traffic-clogged two-lane stretches from Tucson to Phoenix that are much of Interstate 10 aren’t getting much thought. The issue is that touted improvements to U.S. 93 are part of a larger plan to build a dedicated trade corridor between Mexico and Canada, running right through...

    Alice Cooper, Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Ted Nugent, and Tommy Shaw of Styx were among the artists performing at Cooper's annual holiday benefit concert, Alice Cooper's Christmas Pudding, which took place Saturday in Phoenix. According to Blabbermouth, the band Damn Yankees - Nugent, Shaw, Jack Blades and Michael Cartellone - reunited at the show, and additional performers included country legend Glen Campbell and comedian Sinbad. The show raised funds for the Solid Rock Foundation, a nonprofit Christian organization that provides funding for organizations that help young people.

    The Boulder City Review ^ | August 15, 2018 | Celia Shortt Goodyear and Hali Bernstein Saylor
    A city with historic origins made history again when the first new federal interstate in almost 30 years opened in town. On Aug. 9, federal, state and local officials gathered at a scenic overlook on Interstate 11 in Boulder City to officially open the highway. “When we work (and) collaborate together, we reach great heights, like today,” said Mayor Rod Woodbury. The 15-mile stretch of I-11 runs from Henderson to the Hoover Dam and goes around Boulder City. It is expected to reduce travel times between those areas by as much as 30 minutes, according to the Nevada Department of...

    Two Christian business owners in Phoenix are hoping their legal challenge to a local ordinance will usher in a happy new year for them. Artists Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski (pictured) believe in traditional, biblical marriage – a belief that brought them into conflict with a Phoenix ordinance as owners of Brush & Nib Studio in the capital city (see more details on this case). The Arizona Supreme Court will decide in January whether to rule in favor of Duka and Koski – or uphold a lower court's ruling that says the artists must comply with an ordinance that requires...

    PHOENIX - Arizona's highest court will hear arguments from a custom stationery business that believes a Phoenix anti-discrimination law violates their religious freedom. The Arizona Supreme Court said Tuesday it will take the case between Brush & Nib Studio and the city. Brush & Nib's Christian owners said in a 2016 lawsuit that the ordinance forces them to make invitations and other stationery for same-sex weddings under threats of fines and jail time.

    ICE told Arizona Sheriffs it has run out of detention space to handle the number of migrants illegally crossing the border and presenting themselves at ports of entry. This lack of housing and the Flores Settlement’s 20-day release requirement forced ICE to release a large number of “family units" in Arizona all at once. Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot told Fox News, “ICE hasn’t been able to keep up with individuals coming up the border from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, because they’re overwhelmed. They’re releasing them out of the front door of their facilities…Each of our communities are going...

    Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery's office has gone on the defensive, doubling down on the decision to reduce the charges against Holly Davis, who shot and killed a Chinese exchange student in January 2016. As Phoenix New Times reported back in April, prosecutors had initially attempted to charge Davis on 14 criminal counts, including first-degree murder, endangerment, and aggravated assault, after she rear-ended 19-year-old Yue Jiang's Mercedes and then fired into one of the vehicle's windows. In late February of this year, Davis pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, and the other charges were dropped. The plea deal came with a...

    The city of Phoenix is fighting back against a bid by a Christian law firm to get the state’s high court to conclude that businesses have a right to refuse to provide certain services to gays. In new legal filings Friday, attorney Eric Fraser said there is no dispute about the heart of the case. “If a same-sex couple asks Brush & Nib (Studio) for custom wedding products, Brush & Nib will refuse service, regardless of the wording or design the couple wants,’’ he told the Arizona Supreme Court. And the owners of the firm would make a plain-vanilla wedding...

    Media is being vague about how many actually showed up to view McCain's coffin at the AZ State Capitol. I can only find "more than 1500" or "thousands." I am curious--why: McCain's very last campaign rally in 2016 drew less than 150--even with free dinner and drinks being offered. And..... President Trump's rally in August 2017 drew nearly 20,000. The fake news media didn't want to talk about those big numbers.

    FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. (AP) -- It was five days before ballots will be counted in his bid for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, and former Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio had no idea what he was doing. The final days of a campaign are usually frantic, with candidates' every moment scheduled to ensure they meet as many voters as possible. But Arpaio had nothing planned Thursday until a 4:30 p.m. meeting. "I ought to go to a Mexican restaurant and see how they treat me," Arpaio, 86, said as he sat in his strip mall office. So he and his...

    Mayoral candidate Daniel Valenzuela had his salary garnished last year while a member of the Phoenix City Council because of thousands of dollars in unpaid debt, Phoenix New Times has learned. Valenzuela owed $12,208 in debt and interest to the Arizona Federal Credit Union as recently as last year, court documents show. Until April, Valenzuela’s city salary was being garnished to pay back the money owed after the creditor secured a judgment against Valenzuela in Agua Fria Justice Court.
