New law may put flags in classrooms


Deanna Dent / THE STATE PRESS
Public school teachers and public university professors may soon be instructing in the classroom framed by an American flag and posters of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights if House Bill 2583 passes.
The majority of members in the Arizona House of Representatives agreed that a bill requiring all public schools and universities in the state to display American flags in classrooms would be a good idea.

Last week a conference committee decided to take the bill a step further and add an amendment that would require a copy of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights to be hung next to the flag.

Social Security numbers online spark concerns about ID theft

Some Arizonans' Social Security numbers are available to anyone on the Maricopa County Recorders Office Web site, fueling growing concerns about identify theft.

Maricopa County has had some records online since 1996, and documents - covering everything from mortgages and bankruptcies to tax liens and divorces - have always been available to the public at the recorder's office in downtown Phoenix.

But in recent years, concerns about identify theft have mounted, and the county has been getting an average of two to three calls a week from people worried about their private information being online, said Barbara Erichs, a project manager at the Maricopa County Recorders Office.

The official response to those complaints has been: Sorry, but we have no choice, Erichs said.

Tillman inspires world record attempt


Blake Barr
David Gerulski stands with his helmet and Pat Tillman jersey in Cycle Gear, a motorcycle shop in Atlanta, Ga. Gerulski will attempt to cross the Americas on motorcycle in a world record time this September. All money raised will go directly to the Pat Tillman Foundation.
When David Gerulski bought his first motorcycle at the age of 22, his mother, a nurse, warned him that if he ever rode it he'd never be welcome back in her house again.

Gerulski took heed and returned the bike, but now 21 years later he's about to ride over 17,000 miles on one in what he hopes to be a world record 34 days.

Gerulski's ride stems not for personal pride or thrill, but for Pat Tillman and the legacy he left behind.

Titled "34 for 40", in reference to his targeted 34 days and Tillman's pro football jersey number, Gerulski's journey will stretch from the Western Hemisphere's most northern city, Dead Horse, Alaska, to its most southern city, Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego in Argentina.
