PHOENIX – Local law enforcement agencies are reminding drivers to take extra precautions over Memorial Day weekend. Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Director John Halikowski says deadly crashes are rising in Arizona and across the country. “We know how to reverse the trend, and it begins with drivers,” Halikowski said. “Most drivers are responsible, but a few selfish ones drive drunk or high, drive like a madman or refuse to put down the phone. If you know a driver like that, please talk with them. When everyone begins making safe decisions behind the wheel, these preventable car-crash deaths will end.” According to ADOT, […]

A Cosmic Legal Collision: The Engineer vs. The Border Patrol

For a quarter of a century, Terry Bressi, staff member and chief engineer for the Spacewatch Project at the University of Arizona’s Lunar & Planetary Lab, has had two constants in his life. The first is driving to and from the Kitt Peak National Observatory for work, a part of which involves trying to identify asteroids that might threaten Earth.

The speech was an ambitious policy agenda and one line in particular, following the governor’s recognition of our compassionate state, stands out when I look back: “It’s that spirit of service that got us here. And it’s that same spirit of service that will lead Arizona, into the future.” This line really captures the work of so many individuals in what became one of the most productive and historic legislative sessions in memory […]
