Judge mulls whether to block Arizona ID theft laws E-mail
News - St Augustine Area & St Johns County
PHOENIX — Advocates for immigrants urged a judge Thursday to shelve two Arizona ID theft laws that are the legal foundation for business raids by metro Phoenix’s sheriff, arguing the Legislature’s intent in passing the statutes wasn’t to confront identity theft but rather to combat illegal immigration. The state’s lawyers, meanwhile, told U.S. District Judge David Campbell that the argument about the Legislature’s intent was off-point and explained that the laws were passed strictly to address the pervasive problem of identity theft within communities. read more

TAMPA — A severe bout of cold and flu has caused one Tampa school to close for the rest of the week.

DEAR DR. ROACH: My brother is 71 and is having a very difficult time with an extremely low blood platelet count (20). He was supposed to have surgery, but cannot because of this issue.
