Senate OKs bulk of raises

Opposition from the House could compromise plan

The Arizona Senate approved a reduced rendition of the pay raise for state employees yesterday, but the proposal faces an uphill battle in the House.

The structure of the reduced plan would give a 5 percent increase to workers - including UA employees - who make up to $55,000 a year and a 3.5 percent increase to those making $55,000 to $82,000 a year. Workers making more than $82,000 a year would not receive an increase.

Arizona had plenty of chances in the final minutes last night, but Stanford was able to hold off the Wildcats 76-71 in McKale Center.

"Borchardt is just huge," Olson said. "In the end, it was just the big guy inside." [Read article]

Keep sports page real

What is the deal with the sports picks today? Cats vs. trees having the copy chief that doesn't know the difference between a baseball and a hockey puck choosing the winners was a travesty to sports. I am almost completely turned off reading the sports page. [Read article]
