·       Gov Jan Brewer Today Appointed Henry “Hank” Gooday, Jr. to the Pinal County Superior Court. Gooday fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Boyd Johnson.

 

·       McCain And Flake On Impact Of Grand Canyon National Park Shutdowns   “As we stated in our letter to Interior Secretary Jewell, even more troubling than the economic fallout of keeping Grand Canyon National Park closed during the shutdown is the fact that the U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service refuse to use the funds offered funds from local communities and private entities to keep parts of the park open, or explain why they won’t. Washington may have time to play this partisan game of chicken, but the people of Arizona do not. The President must join with Congress to begin negotiations to resolve this impasse. Meanwhile, the National Park Service and the Department of the Interior should work with the State of Arizona and non-federal entities to find solutions that mitigate the impact on the local communities while the shutdown continues.”

·       Speaker Tobin To The People Of Arizona:  Regarding National Park Closures - “You may have heard today that, in response to a request from Arizona and three other states, the federal government will allow National parks to be reopened at state expense. I have contacted the Governor’s office for clarification regarding what this decision means for national parks, like the Grand Canyon. I have asked for information regarding the costs associated with reopening the parks, if all or just a portion of the parks can be reopened and if any legislative action is needed. Additionally, the Senate President and I stand by the joint letter we recently issued with the Governor to President Barack Obama. In it, we offered a state solution to ease the economic burden facing Arizona communities directly impacted by national park closures. Once I receive additional information I will share it with you. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you, Andy.”

·       McCain And Flake On Efforts To Reopen The Grand Canyon U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) today issued the following the statement on efforts to reopen the Grand Canyon:“We are pleased by reports that the Secretary of the Interior now recognizes that the closure of Grand Canyon National Park has been an economic disaster for northern Arizona and has offered to reopen Grand Canyon National Park using state and private donations, which we called for last week.  …“Over the past 10 days, the Grand Canyon has been effectively held hostage. About 18,000 visitors are being turned away each day and those spotted in the Park are being issued citations and ordered to appear before a federal court. Food banks are rushing food to the 2,200 government and tourism employees stranded inside the Park as restaurants and resorts lay off hundreds of workers. Colorado River rafting companies that provide visitors with once-in-a-lifetime Grand Canyon experiences are being forced to cancel reservations and close early for the season. The Town of Tusayan – the gateway to the South Rim – reports that its businesses are losing more than $200,000 a day.

·       Super-Rally-Against-President-In-Works … “Americans have had enough of this shoddy treatment of those who saved our country from tyranny,” said Belinda Bee, organizer of 2 Million Bikers to D.C. “These are men in their 80s and 90s. They can’t come back next month or next year. This is their chance to share in this American experience dedicated to their heroism. And yet, this administration was willing to lock them out of a memorial that normally is unguarded in an attempt to score political points. We, the leadership of 2 Million Bikers To DC, urge you to join in this important rally.”
