    In case you missed it during the FOX networks coverage of the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale classic car auction over the weekend, Chevrolet Performance’s first 2014 COPO Camaro factory race car, numbered No. 1 of 69 (VIN 001 to be exact), was auctioned off for charity, bringing in an impressive $700,000 winning bid— more than seven times the sticker price of a typical COPO. Many of our readers may recognize this as the very same COPO that was unveiled at the SEMA Show as a preview to the 2014 model year build, and was also on display in the Chevrolet Performance booth...

The lender, which operated a single branch, had roughly $31.6 million in assets and $30.8 million in deposits as of March 31. Western State Bank, based in Devils Lake, N.D., agreed to assume all of the failed bank’s deposits and to buy essentially all of its assets. …

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy.

    The Atlantic ^ | May 21, 2011 | Ujala Sehgal
    Sarah Palin has deliberately left the question as to whether or not she will run in 2012 open. For those who believe a bid for the GOP nomination is still a possibility for her, The Arizona Republic provides some further evidence: after months of rumors, Palin may have purchased a house in Scotsdale, Arizona. A deal on a secluded, 8,000-square-foot home in far north Scottsdale was recently closed by Safari Investments LLC for $1.695 million cash. The terms of the deal hide the identity of the owner, and when the attorney listed on the property records, Alan Kierman, was asked...

    SCOTTSDALE - Members of Sarah Palin's camp are considering basing her presidential campaign in Scottsdale, according to Politico.com. She hasn't yet decided whether she will run, but Politico reports that sources within her camp think Scottsdale is a top headquarters location. For one, Palin's daughter Bristol bought a home in Maricopa a few months ago. In the wake of the Tucson shootings, Palin was blasted for a "crosshairs map" she released during the 2010 election that marked Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson as a Democratic to vote out. Some critics connected that rhetoric to the shooting, later leading her to release...

Meeting in Scottsdale Ariz., last weekend, the assemblage of multi-millionaires, whose identities were kept secret by the meeting's organizers, planned to start the process of building an ideas production line for liberal politicians. They wwant to begin what organizers hope will be a long dialogue with the "partners," many from the high-tech industry, a group that backed John Kerry in last year's presidential election.

    Fifteen minutes after KLM Flight 685 took off from Amsterdam for Mexico City on April 8, Mexican authorities forwarded the names of all the passengers to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The reason: the flight was scheduled to pass through U.S. airspace. by the time the Boeing 747 had finished its three-hour crossing of the Atlantic, Homeland Security screeners were on high alert. The names of two Saudi passengers aboard the KLM flight had begun producing "hits" on the screening center's lists of 70,000 suspect foreigners.

The city gave the Lyon Gallery until March 29 to remove The Christ, or its owners could face fines up to $500 each day it continues to loom over Scottsdale Road and Main Street. The gallery was also cited for displaying nine other sculptures by Duke in the public right-of-way, and could be fined as much as $5,000 a day http://www.azcentral.com/community/scottsdale/articles/0303sr-christ03Z8.html

(AP) - Three workers were injured Thursday when a bomb concealed in a notebook-sized package exploded in a city building, officials said. The bomb was powerful enough to shatter windows and propel shrapnel in the walls of Scottsdale's human resources building, said police Sgt. Doug Dirren. Don Logan, director of the city's diversity and dialogue office, accepted the package on delivery, Dirren said. The blast injured his hands and forearms and he required surgery. Dirren said police...

Now, based on the upcoming presidential election and the Scottsdale mayoral and council election, I'm beginning to think they are right.</p> <p>Judging by the domestic spending binge of Bush's first term, a vote for the president would mean a vote for a larger leviathan. A vote for John Kerry would mean a vote for an even larger leviathan. Some choice. We can vote for a big-government Yalie with slicked-down hair or a bigger-government Yalie with blow-dried hair who is married to a ketchup heir.</p>

Scottsdale ATIS information YANKEE says Phoenix airspace closure is from 2210Z till 0240Z. The Scottsdale no-fly zone is from 2235Z to 0145Z I support the President. And I know he has to have security. But I strongly believe that the citizens of this country have a right to travel, by whatever means at their disposal including personal aircraft, to wherever they wish, within reasonable limits. Closing an entire city is BS. It's been plenty long enough since 9/11 for the secret...

    SCOTTSDALE, AZ – The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled today that the Scottsdale public school district discriminated against a local Christian when it banned the distribution of flyers for his summer camp while allowing other non-profits to distribute their materials. Joseph J. Hills ran the camp, which would have had 17 classes in wood-working, dance, and other subjects, as well as two religious classes: Bible Heroes and Bible Tales. The school district refused to allow distribution of the flyers because of the so-called “separation of church and state.” The case, Hills v. Scottsdale Unified School...

    Ridiculous! That is the first thought that comes to mind about the Morrison Institute's report, which was more a statement of ideology than a scholarly study. The institute's thinking is clearly influenced by its location at Arizona State University, where, because the faculty is on the public payroll, there is an affection for big government and a constant whining about taxes being too low. The faculty lounge is not a place to find a diversity of thought on socioeconomic issues. When all of the lofty rhetoric is stripped away, Morrison studies have common themes: Central planning is better than free...
