Boise Family Involved in Arizona Walmart Melee

No information on why the family was in Arizona other than a Facebook account from one of the brothers stating they were looking for “better opportunities and a better climate”. With an Office shot and many others wounded in the altercation Police took action and brought the situation under control.

We will keep an eye on how Arizona Family Law deals with this unfortunate event. Officers will be honoring a Wal-Mart employee and two bystanders who helped bring the situation to a close.

The fight at the Wal-Mart happened March 21 in Cottonwood, Ariz., a
small town about 100 miles north of Phoenix. The family had reportedly
been staying outside the Cottonwood store for several days, living in an
Chevrolet Suburban SUV with Idaho plates.

According to law
enforcement, the incident began when one of the family members shoved a
female store employee as she attempted to enter a restroom. Police
responded and family members allegedly attacked them in the parking lot,
including a struggle for an officer’s gun.

Arizona media have followed the case closely. The Arizona Republic, citing a redacted court document, reports that one member of the family may have disarmed the first officer to arrive.
According to the paper, Nathan Gaver told police that the restroom
dispute involved a man attempting to enter the restroom while their
mother was inside it.

One police officer, Sgt. Jeremy Daniels, 31,
was shot in the leg, but is expected to make a full recovery. A
Wal-Mart employee and seven other police officers suffered minor
injuries, according to investigators.

David Gaver was shot in the
abdomen and was treated at a hospital before being arrested. Enoch
Gaver, 21, was shot to death during the fight.

Two juvenile
members of the family, arrested at the same time, each face charges of
aggravated assault, resisting arrest and riot.

Chewing Sugar Free Gum Great for More than your Teeth

While we have mostly seen the reports from chewing gum companies offering sugar free alternatives to their predecessors, claiming that their product helps fight cavities and promotes good oral health. Well turns out they were correct! Not only that but other positive side effects are being seen in other areas of the body such as the stomach and brain.

“Take that gum out of your mouth!” my loving but vociferous
Italian grandmother (is there any other kind?) told my five-year-old
self. “It’s a dirty habit!” But despite the adult warnings that gum
would stay in my stomach for seven years if I swallowed it, and despite
my grandmother’s chidings, chomping on gum is a habit I never abandoned.
To this day, my OCD does not even allow me out of the house without a
pack of gum. After some investigation of the habit, I realized that
although my grandmother wasn’t wrong about much, she had missed the mark
on this one.

As it turns out, chewing gum can provide a myriad of health
benefits for not only the mouth, but also the mind. Dentists approve of
the stuff, too: “Clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum
for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay,” according
to the American Dental Association (ADA).

But let’s rewind a bit: when and where did the illogical
human behavior of chewing non-food items begin? While it’s often thought
of a modern habit, there is evidence that chewing gum use dates back
thousands of years, and across many cultures. Ancient Europeans, Greeks,
Aztecs, Mayans, and American Indians all had their own versions of
chewing gum. These primordial gums were often made of tree barks, saps,
and resins. Modern gum burst onto the scene in the 1860s as “chicle” in
Mexico, and a hundred years later scientists figured out how to make
synthetic gum bases, which were essentially forms of plastic. And the
gum available in today’s supermarket checkout line is nothing more than
artificially sweetened and flavored rubber. Tastes better than it
sounds, huh?

Arizona Legislature OKs REAL ID Drivers Licenses

It seems Arizona will be next in line to start receiving Driver’s Licenses that meet the more secure identification documents that have been required since 2005 when the REAL ID act was put into place.

There are only 6 States other than Arizona that do not currently meet standards.

The bill was approved through the Arizona House on Thursday 4/2.

PHOENIX – The Arizona Legislature has sent a bill to Gov. Doug Ducey allowing the Arizona Department of Transportation to issue driver’s licenses that comply with the federal REAL ID Act.

Federal facilities have begun implementing rules for more secure identification documents required under the 2005 REAL ID Act. Airports could begin requiring the documents as early as next year.

Arizona is one of just seven states not fully in compliance with the REAL ID Act.

Sen. Bob Worsley is trying to allow state officials to provide optional REAL-ID compliance licenses for Arizona residents. His efforts stalled multiple times before the Senate and the House approved House Bill 2609 on Thursday.

Opponents expressed concerns about the federal government intruding on the privacy rights of individuals. Supporters argued the licenses are optional.
