    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has started a program he calls "Pedal Vision," in which inmates pedal stationary bikes to generate electricity for television sets. The bikes are customized to turn on connected TV sets once inmates at Phoenix's Tent City Jail pedal enough to generate 12 volts of electricity. An hour of pedaling equals an hour of television. Arpaio says inmates only will be able to watch television if they choose to pedal. He says he started the program with female inmates because they seemed more receptive. Arpaio says the only exercise female inmates have been getting is speed-walking...

    GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) -- With a police lieutenant mortally wounded and his alleged assailants fleeing in a work truck, more than 50 law officers sped after them in a wild midnight pursuit from the Phoenix suburbs into the nearby mountains. It was a highly dangerous endeavor. The suspects fired shots at the police cars from the speeding truck, and even tossed out wrenches, other tools and an air compressor tank during the 50-mile chase, police said. A half-dozen police cruisers were disabled after hitting debris or being struck by bullets. But the two men in the truck were never able...

    TUCSON, Ariz. — When you're the biggest dog in the world, you make your own rules. You cruise by countertops of an outdoor kitchen and adjacent barbecue and lower your calf-sized head a notch to sniff out any crumbs from a recent party. You nuzzle up to a bystander, easing your floppy, foot-long ears into the middle of his chest to request some lovin'. You saunter up to a couch, twist your 42-inch-tall, 245-pound body into a puppy pirouette and land your rump on your owner's lap to take a load off. Such is life for 4-year-old George, the Greatest...

  • Senate approves flag mandate for Ariz. classrooms

    PHOENIX — Oh, say, can you see the flag in the classroom? You definitely should be able to no later than July 1, 2007. That's the date by which, state senators declared Tuesday, every public school, community college and university classroom must have an American flag. Oh, and it must be at least 2 by 3 feet and U.S.-made only, thank you. The measure is not likely to have a major impact on public schools, where most classrooms already have flags so students can recite the Pledge of Allegiance each day. The real effect will be at state universities and...

    PHOENIX - An Arizona legislator has been removed from office for overspending during his 2004 primary race, making him the first lawmaker in the country to be ousted for violating a state's public campaign financing system. After a five-month court battle, the Arizona Supreme Court on Thursday ordered first-term Republican Rep. David Burnell Smith to leave office at midnight. "I will no longer exercise any duties as a representative," the 64-year-old lawyer said Friday. Under Arizon's 1998 Clean Elections Law, candidates who voluntarily participate must collect a set number of $5 contributions from voters to qualify for public funding. In...

    PHOENIX (AP) - When burglars broke into Rep. Jim Kolbe's cabin last month, they ignored an antique rifle and other valuables. Instead, the intruders ate some food, used the shower and took some clothes from the home less than 30 miles from the Mexican border, near the nation's busiest corridor for illegal immigrants. Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada regularly hears about migrants burglarizing homes as they cross the Arizona desert. Two or three such break-ins are reported in the county each month, and residents complain about trespassers every day, he said Thursday. "It happens. And it probably happens more...

    PHOENIX (AP) -- Arizona's House speaker said he's worried about a nudist summer camp for teenagers and is urging an investigation. Jake Flake said he would encourage the Maricopa County Prosecutor's Office to investigate the camp at Shangri La Ranch, a clothing-optional resort just north of Phoenix. He said he's concerned about adults seeing the children and teens naked. "I have to think that they are breaking some laws somehow. Indecency or something," Flake told The Arizona Republic in Friday's editions. State law allows nudity on private property, even among minors with parental permission. About 15 youths, aged 11 through...
