Dale Doughty, Lewiston's director of Public Works, said CMMC installed the flashing, button-operated light in either the 1980s or 1990s after asking the City Council for permission, agreeing to maintain it. "Last winter, the device started to act up — sometimes it would stick on and sometimes it wouldn't come on," Doughty said. The hospital plans to install a new set of flashing beacons. "We'll give them some technical advice (when the new lights come in)," Doughty said.

Prosecutors say that Hasson, a Coast Guard lieutenant is a "domestic terrorist" who wrote about biological attacks and had a hit list that included prominent Democrats and media figures. He is due in court on Feb. 21 in Maryland. Prosecutors say Hasson espoused extremist views for years. Court papers say Hasson described an "interesting idea" in a 2017 draft email that included "biological attacks followed by attack on food supply."

Arizona is one of just three states that has no statewide ban on texting while driving, but that could change this year after a decade of failed attempts in the Legislature to outlaw it. The death of a police officer struck by a driver last Jan. 8, 2019, who was allegedly texting may be a catalyst for lawmakers to change the law. The Senate has passed three bills to punish distracted drivers, but they're held up in the House amid a disagreement among Republicans about how far to go in legislating behavior.
