You know that $600 million for border security that the U.S. Senate finally passed last week? The New York Times reports that the spending package has hit a procedural snag in the House of Representatives:


With the House coming back, the Senate then gave surprise 11th  hour approval to a $600 million immigration enforcement measure and a child nutrition bill intended to reduce child obesity, a priority of Michelle Obama, in the hope that the House could send both measures to the president as well.


But House leaders are raising jurisdictional issues over the immigration bill, saying that fee increases included in the measure to pay for added border enforcement violate the Constitutional requirement that revenue measures originate in the Hou ...read more...

The Phoenix New Times reports that Trace Adkins shared a few words about SB 1070 at his concert in Phoenix last night:


Well, it looks like Lady Gaga's not the only one who can't keep her mouth shut about political issues during concerts. At last night's Toby Keith show at Cricket Wireless Pavilion in Phoenix, Trace Adkins decided to let the Valley know just how he weighed in on the whole SB 1070 issue. He not only expressed his support for the controversial immigration law, but he also told anyone who doesn't like Sheriff Joe Arpaio to blow him.

2010-08-10 Waddell Signs Extension to Stay With KGUN (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2010/08/09/waddell-signs-extension-to-stay-with-kgun

        

KGUN Channel 9 anchor Jennifer Waddell has signed a three-year contract extension with the ABC affiliate.


“We’re thrilled to have renewed our contract with Jennifer and look forward to more success,” said KGUN news director Forrest Carr.


Waddell made an impact on the market immediately upon her arrival. She has an engaging personality and ability to connect with the audience—and her ability to comprehend a variety of topics makes the usually unbearable end-of-segment chat aspect of television news palatable.


Her initial contract came to a close last month, and in the waning days of negotiations, KGUN placed an anchor-posiition posting on its Web site and national job sites. Now that Waddell and the station have agreed to terms, th ...read more...
