Shake a leg New Year's Day and help walk shelter dogs

Latin America has a homophobic killings problem

By all accounts, Joel Molero, an openly gay young man, was enjoying his life to the fullest in Chachapoyas, a sleepy provincial capital in northern Peru. The 19-year-old high school graduate had a lively social life, sang in a cumbia band — dance music more popular in much of Latin America than salsa — and was making plans to study in Ecuador. All that came to a shocking halt on Nov. 22, at the end of a raucous but innocent evening in a karaoke bar. ... Read more»

Deputies seek help finding stolen miniature horse

Although they've been chasing down outlaws since 1865, the Pima County Sheriff's Department doesn't often work to catch rustlers these days. But a case this week has echoes of the past, if on a bit smaller scale. Deputies are asking for the public's help locating Dandy, a miniature horse missing from his Avra Valley barn.... Read more»1

Year in review: Little movement on immigration reform

The big news on the immigration front in 2013 is what didn’t happen. Advocates for reform, including the immigrant community, law enforcement, and business and faith-based leaders, hoped this was the year for a comprehensive overhaul of the country’s immigration system. They argued that the anti-immigrant rhetoric on the 2012 campaign trail had energized Democrats and rattled moderate Republicans, who they hoped would take action on immigration reform for the first time since 1986....

Whoppers of 2013

It’s that time of year again when we look back — perhaps not so fondly — on the most noteworthy nonsense from the past 12 months. The year after a presidential election was certainly no letdown from a fact-checking perspective. In 2013, we uncovered falsehoods to fairy tales about immigration, gun control, the IRS, Benghazi and — no surprise here — the Affordable Care Act.... Read more»

Payment due: The Obamacare deadline no one is talking about

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced this morning that nearly 365,000 Americans had signed up for private health insurance under Obamacare. But amid the rush to enroll as many people as possible by the Dec. 23 deadline, there’s a huge caveat that isn’t getting much public attention: For coverage to take effect on Jan. 1, enrollees must pay their first month’s premium on time. (The deadline varies somewhat by state and by insurer.)... Read more»1

More than 368,000 deported from U.S. in FY 2013

The Obama administration on Thursday announced that it deported 368,644 undocumented immigrants from the country during the 2013 fiscal year. That's a decrease from the 409,849 removals in 2012. But that didn’t stop advocates for immigration reform from immediately criticizing the president for his administration’s continued record-setting deportations.... Read more»1
