Hot Links: West Valley JP Challenges Photo Enforcement; News Chopper Crash Findings to be Released; Trapeze Artist has Fatal Fall in Scottsdale
A West Valley Justice of the Peace says he issued a court order declaring photo enforcement invalid because the fines are much lower than a regular speeding ticket. It's doubtful he'd love the system much more if the fines were raised, though. The government's findings on last year's news chopper crash that killed four people are due out. Shoulda had a net: A trapeze artist falls to his death in Scottsdale during an FBR Open show. Another place to waste your money: A new Indian casino is about to open near Yuma. Ira Fulton gaves millions to charitable causes -- now his company, Fulton Homes, is going bankrupt. A Tucson-area family will star on Extreme Makeover. State board of regents plan to cut the budget their way. Cox Communications wants to roll out its out wireless high-speed network to compete with AT&T and Verizon. You know hit-and-runs are a problem when cops allegedly do them -- a Mesa off-duty copy slammed into a fountain in his personal car after having a few drinks and flees the scene, leaving behind his AR-15 assault rifle.
