Closure, lane restrictions for DPS investigation early Sunday on I-10 near Casa Grande

Area involved is between State Route 387 and McCartney Road PHOENIX – Motorists using Interstate 10 near Casa Grande between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m. Sunday should plan for a closure and detour followed by lane restrictions while the Arizona Department of Public Safety investigates a crash that occurred this week, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. The area involved is between State Route 387 (milepost 185) and McCartney Road (milepost 190). A closure of I-10 in both directions is expected to occur around 5 a.m. The length of the closure will depend on how long it takes state troopers to take measurements in the crash scene. During the closure, eastbound traffic can take SR 387 south to McCartney Road or SR 287 and head east back to I-10. Westbound traffic can take SR 287 or McCartney Road west and then SR 387 north back to I-10. After measurements are complete, one lane will reopen in each direction until the DPS investigation is complete. For the m

UPDATE: Barrier placement to continue on SR 86 west of Tucson next week

Work to install temporary construction barrier on State Route 86 west of Tucson will continue on Monday (May 2) and will require intermittent lane closures. Lane closures will be needed from 6 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. between the junctions with Old Ajo Highway and Continental Road (mileposts 159-162). Delays of up to 15 minutes can be expected.

Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

Satanists Take Issue with Ted Cruz Comparisons to Their Lord

It seems some of our Satanists friends are not pleased with John Boehner's recent comment likening Ted Cruz to "Lucifer in the flesh." They say that is deeply unfair to the Dark One! After Boehner's vitriol comments, the Satanic Temple was quick to distance itself from Cruz and a temple spokesman said, "Cruz's failures of reason, compassion, decency, and humanity are products of his Christian pandering, if not an actual Christian faith. It grows tedious when pedophile priests and loathsome politicians are conveniently dismissed as Satanic, even as they spew biblical verse and prostrate themselves before the cross, recruiting the Christian faithful. Satanists will have nothing to do with any of them." Cruz is notoriously unpopular among his fellow Republicans, some of whom agreed that Boehner was doing Satan a disservice. New York Rep. Peter King said of Boehner, "Maybe he gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz." (Politico)

What the WHAT?

Just a week ago nobody had ever heard of 21-year-old Searcy Hayes of Natchez, Mississippi. But she quickly became a viral sensation after viewers of the Maury Povich show decided she was the female doppelganger of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. We have to admit, the facial resemblance is uncanny! Hayes went on the show after her fiance, 25-year-old Freddie Green, accused her of cheating on him. All was resolved in typical Maury fashion when she passed a lie detector test and DNA results showed her 3-month-old son was Green's. However, a side effect of the appearance has been that numerous websites have printed side-by-side photos showing Hayes next to Cruz. Amazingly, Hayes says she had never heard of Cruz before the resemblance was pointed out to her and she still knows little about him. However all this attention was noticed by the popular porn site who offered Hayes and her fiance $10,000 for a 6-minute sex tape. They said yes. XHamster spokesman Mike

Another Dating Site Hacked But You Have Nothing to Worry About.

Looks like another dating site has been hacked but unless you're super hot, you've got nothing to worry about., an elite dating website for the exclusively good looking, has reportedly had the private data of more than 1 million users leaked. The breach leaked information such as addresses, sexual preferences and incomes, as well as millions of private messages. The website is famous for excluding unattractive people by having existing members rate those trying to sign up. Prospective members must pass a certain ratings threshold to be allowed on the website and millions have been denied access. Many current members have also been removed for gaining weight after joining. The site claims to be "the largest dating community of attractive people in the world" and to have spawned 700 marriages. The site was originally hacked in December, when the breach appeared to be confined to a database of test accounts. However, the data of real users is now bei

What Kind of Evil Evicts a 100-Year-Old Woman?

In Palm Desert, California, 100-year-old Evelyn Heller represented herself in a trial in which her landlord sought her eviction on grounds she had loud, disruptive arguments with one of her daughters. Heller, who can barely see or hear, lost on April 1 and was ordered to pay more than $1,500 in court costs, attorney's fees, and even prorated rent! Fortunately publicity from the case caught the attention of a local congressman, Rep. Raul Ruiz, and even motivational speaker Tony Robbins who came to her rescue. Ruiz sent social workers to help Heller find a new apartment, and Robbins donated $24,000 -- $1,000 a month for two years. She now lives in La Quinta, where Ruiz, his wife, and Robbins visited her Friday. Chatting over the next 20 minutes, Heller divulged her crush on President Obama and her early hunch that Taylor Swift was going to be famous. She also said, "I don't know how anyone my age can have a bigger day than today." (Newser)

Visiting Japan Soon? There's Are Some New Rules!

If you plan to be visiting the Japanese island of Hokkaido anytime soon, please be advised that they have released a new guide for tourists - one which frankly we think should be distributed to everybody in the world. Aimed at the millions of people who visit the island's ski resorts and hot springs every year, it basically wants to create a fart-free utopia where everyone is polite and naked! Included in the new edicts are: Don't be obnoxiously loud Throw your used toilet paper roll in the toilet (Really?) Don't steal stuff Always respect the queue (Don't cut in line) Don't talk with your mouth full No farting in public Get naked when you visit the island's many hot springs Regarding that last one, apparently the island's people consider it rude to wear bathing suits or shorts when bathing or soaking in the hot springs. Proper etiquette is for you to get completely naked! Yee haw! (Metro)

How to Arrive At Your High School Reunion in Style

Vern Herrst is a 67-year-old cancer survivor and plans to ride on horseback to his 50th high school reunion-- 2,200 miles away! He began his epic journey last Friday from the Methow Valley in northern Washington in hopes of reaching Howell, Michigan, before the reunion in August. He'll be riding his 12-year-old horse, Nikki, through Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin and says, "I always wanted to do something like this -- and who knows how many more chances I'll have." The trip is also a fundraiser to support agencies that helped in Herrst's fight against myeloproliferative disease, a blood disorder similar to leukemia. Herrst hopes to ride between 20 and 25 miles per day until he enters Michigan sometime in July. At night, he plans to roll out a sleeping bag and sleep under the stars or climb into a tent if it's raining. If you want to follow his adventure you can check out his Facebook page: 2016 Great Northern Horse Adventure.  (Livings

Ariel Winter Is Officially College Bound -- Find Out With University She'll Be Attending! And just like that, Ariel Winter is preparing for college. It feels like yesterday that Modern Family fans were watching the young star grow up right in front of our eyes, and now we're here, preparing to send our little girl off to a university all on her own. OK, maybe that's a little dramatic, but it's still pretty surreal to know that the 18-year-old is about to prepare for a huge new chapter in her life. And today, Winter revealed to fans which university she decided to attend, and it looks like she'll be rocking that blue and gold. "It's an AMAZING DAY! I'm going to UCLA," she wrote on Instagram with a photo of her online admissions page from the school's website. "Thank you to everyone who has been there for me on this journey! #bruinsbaby" Winter has certainly blossomed before America's eyes since she first graced our television scre
