    White flags raised at Brooklyn Bridge

    Police responded to the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday for a major security breach at one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the span connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is not clear who raised the flags that had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes or why.  The American flags that are normally up at the bridge were removed.

    Fruit packaged by the Wawona Packing Company out of Cutler, California and sold at stores across the country is being voluntarily recalled. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says there is a possibility the recalled products may be contaminated with listeria. No illnesses have been linked to the recall. Certain lots of peaches, nectarines, plums and pluots sold at Trader Joe's, Costco, Sam's Club and Fresh Direct could be contaminated with the dangerous food-borne pathogen.

    Tempe band returns wallet full of cash while touring in Texas

    A valley band is making news, not for what they did on stage, but rather for the good deed they did off the stage.The Black Moods hit the road on tour and during a stop at a gas station they found a wallet filled with cash.

SURPRISE, Ariz. -

It's not easy getting older. Your body tends to slow down a bit with new aches and pains. But don't tell that to one valley man. At 91 years old, he just set a world record for lifting weights.

Si Perlis calls himself a gym rat. That's quite a statement when you are 91 years old and fought in World War II. Five days a week, you'll find Si working out in a Sun City Grand weight room.
