Mesa, Gila River drive toward goal [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Mesa, Gila River drive toward goal Stadium authority pares field For Mesa, landing the proposed Cardinals stadium offers an opportunity to redefine its image, a chance to transform itself from the nation’s largest "boomburb" into a major league city. The Gila River Indian Community, meanwhile, sees the stadium as a chance to lever the untold economic development potential of thousands of acres of land on the fringes of the Valley. The two bidders emerged Tuesday as the finalists in the race to land the $350 million stadium. The state Tourism and Sports Authority said Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation is also in the running, but as a kind of Plan B alternative. In order to make their dreams come true, however, the two frontrunners will have to spend the next 15 days shoring up their bids in time for the authority’s March 21 deadline for selecting the ultimate winner. Mesa must use that time to persuade other East Valley cities and the football team to join its effort in la...
Hull lays out plan for state pay hike [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Hull lays out plan for state pay hike Governor vows veto if budget draft seeks more than 2.5% raise Gov. Jane Hull offered lawmakers a way out of their budget standoff Tuesday, saying she is prepared to sign legislation that provides state employees with a 2.5 percent pay raise. The move represents a significant change for Hull, who had called for cancellation of a planned 5 percent pay raise to help the state make up a $200 million gap in this year’s budget. It is also an attempt to find the middle ground between House Republicans, who want to scrap the pay raise entirely, and Senate lawmakers who are pushing a modified version of the 5 percent increase for most of the state’s 65,000 employees. Hull’s proposed wage increase — which would take effect June 24 — would cost approximately $50 million, compared to $124 million for the 5 percent increase that was slated to start April 1. "This is a reasonable compromise that rewards the hard work of our employees while cutti...

Heroism in a hellish battle [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Heroism in a hellish battle U.S. troops recount details of Afghan war’s worst combat WASHINGTON — Trapped by intense hostile fire and unable to evacuate their wounded for 12 hours, a detachment of American Special Forces troops fought off an al-Qaida ambush in some of the most grueling and gruesome combat of the 5-month-old war in Afghanistan, officials said Tuesday. When it was over Monday, the bodies of seven American servicemen and 11 wounded comrades were lifted off the battlefield under guard of AC-130 gunships. Their machine guns and cannon drove back the advancing fighters — but not before commanders monitoring airborne surveillance video had seen al-Qaida fighters dragging off one of their troops to his death, military officials said. Reports from the scene described the heroism of those American troops who fell in combat, and those who went in to bring them back. The offensive continued Tuesday for a fourth day, with U.S. and Afghan soldiers inching up snow-co...

TSA asks Tempe to pay up for $1.5M sunk at first site [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
TSA asks Tempe to pay up for $1.5M sunk at first site The state Tourism and Sports Authority wants Tempe taxpayers to pay for the $1.5 million mistake made after Tempe won the stadium and then lost the stadium when it was declared a potential safety hazard. The authority, which is building the stadium, filed a claim with Tempe on Monday seeking to be reimbursed for money spent to prepare the site at Washington Street and Priest Drive. The authority spent the money only after assurances from Tempe that the had city received preliminary approval from the Federal Aviation Administration paving the way for construction of the stadium. "Unfortunately, Tempe was desperate to be awarded the site, gambling with TSA and the taxpayers’ money that the FAA prob- TEMPE: TSA seeks money from Tempe lems Tempe knew about but never shared with TSA could be worked out," the claim states. "TSA never agreed to, or was even aware of, such a gamble." As the authority was later to learn, t...

Smog tied to increased lung cancer death risk [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Smog tied to increased lung cancer death risk Advocates say Arizona must do more to reduce pollution A new study shows longterm exposure to smog such as in the East Valley significantly raises the risk of dying from lung cancer— and is about as dangerous as living with a smoker. Local public health advocates say the findings are part of a growing body of evidence demonstrating Arizona should enact stronger measures to control microscopic dust, including the controversial use of a cleaner-burning diesel fuel. "I’m glad to see scientists are trying to further demonstrate that it is the pollution and not other risk factors, which is one of the factors industry often raises," said Vera Kornylak of the Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest. "What I’d really like to see now is a change in the focus from the gathering of information to the application of the information toward . . . changes in the law that will actually have a positive effect on the environment."

Huachucas fire grows to 931 acres [Newspaper Article] — East Valley Tribune — 6 March 2002
Huachucas fire grows to 931 acres TUCSON — Wind gusts and low humidity on Tuesday spread a fire farther over steep, rugged slopes in southeastern Arizona’s Huachuca Mountains despite a growing contingent of firefighters and aircraft. Three helicopters shuttling large buckets of water and two air tankers joined firefighters who concentrated on the east side of the Oversight Fire, which grew to 931 acres by late Tuesday. Officials determined it was human-caused. The fire triggered some crowning — jumping across treetops, said U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Joan Vasey. It was burning in oak and Ponderosa pine at elevations of about 7,000 feet. No homes or other structures were threatened, and there were no injuries, she said.
