Phoenix, AZ – Current law says the decision is supposed to be based on the best interests of the child. This new law says that, everything else being equal, a child must go to a couple rather than a single person or an unmarried couple. Cathi Herrod of the Center for Arizona Policy, which promotes what it calls pro-family legislation, said this change makes sense.
Phoenix, AZ – Overall, the state added 99-hundred jobs last month. Two thirds of those were in the leisure and hospitality industry which posted its best March gain in more than a decade. Most of the new workers were being hired by bars and restaurants. Aruna Murthy of the state Department of Commerce has a theory on that.
For countless generations, Native Americans have used eagle feathers in sacred ceremonies. Those of bald eagles, in particular, play a prominent role.
But federal law closely protects all eagles, and distribution and possession of their feathers is carefully controlled. Except for the Hopi, it is also illegal to take eaglets from nests in order to raise them for their feathers.
