    Getting the story is always priority No. 1, but a Phoenix TV reporter seems to have forgotten about No. 2 until it was too late. Jonathan Lowe, a reporter for KPHO, was arrested Monday afternoon after allegedly defecating on a front lawn near the subject of his story’s home. The 33-year-old was seen by a neighbor as he picked up papers from the street before leaning against the wall of a house and relieving himself, according to a Goodyear police report obtained by his station. An officer tasked with the job of tracking Lowe down said the suspect admitted to...

    Town of Paradise Valley Independent ^ | April 25, 2016 | Sal DiCiccio
    Phoenix politicians are pushing a $37 million property tax increase. This is right after they pushed a transit tax of $31.5 billion, a water tax increase of $15.3 million that went for pay raises and bonuses, and an airport ride sharing fee of over $8 million annually. This new $37 million property tax increase is a clear example of Phoenix spending more than they need and taking more money from you and your family. First, Phoenix does not have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. This property tax increase is coming when Phoenix is seeing record budget revenue...

    The bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives came forward Thursday, admitting that a box spotted and removed from an SRP power pole on 21st and Glendale avenues belonged to them and was part of an ongoing investigation. ATF officials would not elaborate on the investigation and would not say if they were conducting surveillance in the area. "I don't feel safer," said Brian Clegg, who called ABC15 about the box on the power pole behind his house. Clegg was suspicious there could be cameras installed in the boxes but ATF would not confirm that.

    A huge swarm of bees surrounded people at the Muslim Community Mosque in Phoenix, Arizona, in a terrifying moment caught on video. At least 20 people were stung Friday, Phoenix Fire Department spokeswoman Ardell Deliz told ABC News. One person -- a 24-year-old man -- was transported to the hospital in stable condition, Deliz said. Firefighters rushed to the scene and sprayed the area with a foam that calms the insects, but Deliz said it took at least a few hours until a bee keeper could come remove them.

House Speaker David Gowan has decided that he is applying the law that allows him to keep weapons out of his building only to staff, lobbyists, media and other visitors. But press aide Stephanie Grisham said that does not mean legislators who have their guns are breaking the law. Grisham said the law makes it a crime to bring a deadly weapon into a public building "after a reasonable request by the operator of the establishment.'' She said that means...

    PHOENIX — Insisting it's good from everything from civics to brain development, state lawmakers want to require students to know how to read and write in cursive. Legislation on the desk of Gov. Doug Ducey would mandate that schools include cursive reading and writing in their curriculum. Specifically, students would have to show by the end of fifth grade they are "able to create readable documents through legible cursive handwriting.'' But, unlike a requirement that students know how to read by the end of the third grade, there is nothing in the law that says students who can't display that...

Suddenly though, a new burst of particles streamed down from space, lighting up the Earth's atmosphere once again. This time, unexpectedly, pareidoliacally, they created an amazing shape reminiscent of a giant phoenix. With camera equipment at the ready, two quick sky images were taken, followed immediately by a third of the land. The mountain in the background is Helgafell, while the small foreground river is called Kaldá, both located about 30...

The culmination of a comeback that has been gaining steam over the past year, the former Mars Hill pastor announced the news of The Trinity Church on Monday by email, Twitter and a new website. In a folksy video on the site, which begins with a “howdy” from Driscoll, the pastor said he and his wife, Grace, sitting by his side, were “hoping, trusting, praying, planning and also a little” — he made a jokey grimace — “worrying about planting a church here.”

    The Phoenix City Council voted Wednesday to replace a longstanding tradition of prayer before meetings with a moment of silence prayer, preventing an address by a group with "Satan" in its name and averting a lawsuit over constitutional rights. The moment of silence prayer was offered as an alternate motion to a measure that would have allowed the mayor and councilors to take turns in selecting who gives the invocation. That measure would not have blocked The Satanic Temple's prayer scheduled for Feb. 17, city attorney Brad Holm said. More than 50 people, including religious leaders, gave emotional testimony, invoking...

    Ten shootings, 11 days, all along one small, busy stretch of Interstate-10 through downtown Phoenix. And no suspects, and no end in sight -- yet. Fresh off another shooting Wednesday, the head of the Arizona Department of Public Safety called ending this spree "job one" for his and partner agencies. But to do so, he said, the public may need to help. "Somebody is very aware of who this is," Col. Frank Milstead said. "... There should be no benevolence for this person, or apathy. This is a cold-blooded crime. This person is a coward."

    Texas has a stockpile of gold. That gold is kept in New York City in an underground vault managed by HSBC. Texas has decided it wants all its gold back in Texas. Earlier this year, Governor Greg Abbott signed a law that had sailed through the Texas Legislature. It sets up a depository facility in Texas that will house all of Texas’s gold inside Texas. According to the Associated Press, Texas’s gold measures “about 20 square feet”. I’m thinking that should be cubic feet, but no matter. That’s not the best part. In examining how Texas might get its actual,...

    George Takei called Thomas a "clown in blackface" following the justice's dissent in last week's landmark same-sex marriage ruling.Star Trek legend George Takei has apologized for calling Clarence Thomas a "clown in blackface" following the Supreme Court justice's dissent in last week's landmark same-sex marriage ruling, according to CNN. "I was still seething, and I referred to him as a 'clown in blackface' to suggest that he had abdicated and abandoned his heritage," Takei wrote Friday in a Facebook post. "This was not intended to be racist, but rather to evoke a history of racism in the theatrical arts. While...

    This 4th of July is as much a lamentation as a celebration. I’m not trying to rain on your parade but in a world where the Duke boys are the new KKK, as Captain Sulu gets to call Clarence Thomas a “clown in black face” while hiding behind a “LoveWins” hashtag, we have clearly lost our minds. But I’m sure George Takei will feel terrible about his mistake once the Star Trek DVDs and scale models of the Enterprise are taken off the shelves—faster than you can say “you will be made to care.” Wait, what’s that you say? Takei...

    The conservative world exploded in outrage over George Takei's blatantly racist remark calling Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas "a clown in blackface," but they all got this story wrong. Takei is a very rare bird: an intellectually honest liberal. I'm not going to cover in detail what Takei said and what Justice Thomas wrote.  You can read about it here, here, and here. To sum up, Justice Thomas wrote in his dissent on Obergefell v. Hodges (the gay marriage case, for those who have hid their heads in a bag for the last two weeks) that the government doesn't bestow dignity and humanity...
