New ASU/Channel 8 poll has Obama-McCain dead even in AZ. Same poll claims Arpaio out in front of Dan Saban. AP poll has Barack ahead in eight battleground states. Valley voters waiting up to 90 minutes to cast early ballots. Church group demands to see Arpaio jails report. Suns, Spurs clash tonight in season opener. World Series will resume this evening, if weather cooperates. Local restaurants robbed by "Cookie Bandit." (The one from Sesame Street?) And Joaquin Phoenix leaves acting for music. Remember, you ain't Johnny Cash, dood. You just played him in a movie.
