    Manuel Gomez, 25, Johan Alacon, 21, and Sue Ellen Gutierrez Saez, 20, were arrested at around 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 16 near 44th Street and Camelback Road.

    While Phoenix's pantless light-rail run dates back to 2009, the 2019 ride was canceled and the event took a three year hiatus thanks to the pandemic in 2020. Now four years later, it's making a comeback, but things are a little different.

  • Phoenix finally clears giant 15-block encampment of up to 2,000 homeless people known as 'The Zone' ahead of today's court deadline

    The city of Phoenix has cleared out its largest homeless encampment and displaced thousands of people after a court ruling declared the camp a 'public nuisance'. City officials successfully finished their clean-up of 'The Zone,' a 15-block homeless encampment near downtown, at the cost of $20 million and moved nearly 2,000 people out of the area. The sweep comes after a judge imposed a November 4 deadline to remove tents, trash and makeshift structures and told the city to find alternative housing for people experiencing homelessness. Some of the people who were displaced had lived in the area for years...

    Several Arizona legislators hoped changing the blend of gasoline sold in the Valley would lower prices. They left a hearing at the State Capitol on Monday with little expert opinion to support the idea. Phoenix drivers and businesses have paid well above the national average for gasoline this year, with prices spiking in two waves over the summer, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In March, gas prices in Arizona were the fifth-highest in the nation. But the average price for unleaded regular gas peaked at $4.94 in May before dropping and leveling out at $4.76...

    The Phoenix TSMC plant – the centerpiece of Biden’s $52.7bn US hi-tech manufacturing agenda – is struggling to get online. TSMC has pushed back plans to start manufacturing to 2025, blaming a lack of skilled labor. It is trying to fast-track visas for 500 Taiwanese workers. Construction of the plant has been hampered by accidents and misunderstandings. A former supervisor at the site blamed delays on disorganization from management and a lack of knowledge by bosses from Taiwan on adhering to safety codes and regulations in the US. When they started working at the site, all workers went through a...

    A pair of Prescott area lawmakers have put Attorney General Kris Mayes on the clock to figure out if City of Phoenix officials broke state laws by sending up to 600 seized firearms to police forces in Ukraine. State Reps. Quang Nguyen, R-Prescott Valley, and Selina Bliss, R-Prescott, on Monday requested a "Senate Bill 1487" investigation, named after the process's initial bill filing, from Mayes as to whether the city's decision to ship 500-600 seized firearms to the Ukrainian Arsenal of Liberty is legal. The city approved the plan in June. Per Arizona law, Mayes has 30 days to issue...

    Fourteen major American cities are part of a globalist climate organization known as the “C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group,” which has an “ambitious target” by the year 2030 of “0 kg [of] meat consumption,” “0 kg [of] dairy consumption,” “3 new clothing items per person per year,” “0 private vehicles” owned, and “1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person.” C40’s dystopian goals can be found in its “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World” report, which was published in 2019 and reportedly reemphasized in 2023.

    A record string of daily highs over 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43.3 degrees Celsius) in Phoenix ended Monday as the dangerous heat wave that suffocated the Southwest throughout July receded slightly with cooling monsoon rains. The historic heat began blasting the region in June, stretching from Texas across New Mexico and Arizona and into California’s desert.

The previous record was 18 straight days, set in 1974. The streak was finally broken Monday, when the high...

    The southwest is dealing with a dangerous heat wave that could bring temperatures as high as 130 degrees in the desert, as 113 million Americans currently live under heat warnings.

Known as a 'heat dome' to meteorologists, the phenomenon is now set to persist through much of the month - scorching metros in Arizona, Nevada, and California in the process. Midday highs were mostly expected...
