PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona National Guard's top officer has unveiled more than a dozen initiatives aimed at solving problems within the organization that were documented in a recent investigation. Gov. Jan Brewer asked for the investigation and a remediation plan after The Arizona Republic published a series of stories exposing years of misconduct by Arizona military personnel and raising questions about the Guard's leadership and culture. Maj. Gen. Hugo Salazar says a key priority is addressing issues of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Bullhead City police say a Craigslist ad for a cellphone is what led detectives to a suspected counterfeiter. Dean Everett Boyer was arrested last week and locked up in Mohave County jail in Kingman. Police say a search of Boyer's home turned up a forged driver's license, license plates, a concealed weapons permit and several counterfeit $100 and $10 bills. The investigation began when Boyer answered an ad to buy a woman's cellphone. He's accused of giving the woman a $100 bill that turned out to be counterfeit.
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - There are trenches up to 2 feet deep that cut across some trails at Saguaro National Park East. The causes include horses' hooves, storm runoff and years of natural erosion. Park officials say they are working to repair and reroute the most severely rutted trails and some trail segments have been closed to horses to prevent more damage. Supervisor Shelley Lane tells the Arizona Daily Star the trail crew has been rerouting badly eroded sections of trail so that it follows the contours of the land at a lesser grade and won't be as susceptible to erosion.
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A group of wild turkeys is now roaming Mount Lemmon after being captured at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Managers with the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the base's cultural and natural resources office had been monitoring the birds' movement through eastside neighborhoods until they were in a location where they could be captured without harm.
