Prince Road changes; Rancers propose border plan; Take back the night; Walker fire

Posted: Updated:

Just months after wrapping up a huge project to widen I-10 out to eight lanes south of Prince-- ADOT now is looking north. There are plans to widen the freeway out to eight lanes between Prince and Ruthrauff in the future.

It also plans to take Prince Road up over the interstate -- and more importantly -- over the railroad tracks. That would cut out many long waits for trains.

There will be a public hearing on the project later this month.

Southern Arizona ranchers, rallying today at the state capitol for tighter border security.  The push comes after the murder late last month of one of their own, Robert Krentz, gunned down on his own land.  Allegedly by an illegal immigrant.

The group has worked up a plan to cut drug and people smuggling.  And presented it to state leaders.

Still no containment on the 300-acre "Walker Fire," burning in the Santa Rita Mountains. Hot shot crews are on the ground, and it's also being battled from the air. But the fire isn't threatening any structures.
