Dems target women with bills on contraception, pay

Dems target women with bills on contraception, pay


WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic and Republican Senators are pouring significant time and energy into pursuing female voters, a coveted prize in the Nov. 4 elections.

Wednesday's Senate vote on contraception legislation is the latest example of Democrats' win-by-losing strategy, which forces Republicans to vote on sensitive matters that might rile women this fall.

Recent votes on "pay equity" and family leave issues were similarly aimed at women, who are increasingly crucial to Democrats' election hopes, and therefore worrisome to Republicans. Any shift in women's typical turnout or Democratic tilt this fall could determine tight elections, especially for the Senate.

Republicans need to gain six Senate seats to control the chamber, and these women's issues are especially lively in the most contested states, including Colorado, North Carolina, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Suspect's lawyers want names of police informants


ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) - Attorneys for a man accused of killing two Arkansas girls and their stepfather say they want the names of the people who helped police in their investigation.

The Daily Siftings Herald reports (http://bit.ly/WeamyO) lawyers for 21-year-old Riakos Lizana argue the informants' identities are necessary for a fair trial.

Lizana is charged with capital murder in the 2012 deaths of 40-year-old Bobby Jean Galbraith, 4-year-old Marley Crutchfield and 6-year-old Adiele Crutchfield. The newspaper reports a bloody palm print led Arkadelphia police to arrest Lizana. A suspected cause of the victims' deaths hasn't been released.

Prosecutors say releasing the informants' names isn't needed, arguing disclosure would be appropriate if they had been witnesses or participants in the crime.

Blood drives happening in August

Blood drives happening in August

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Red Cross)— The American Red Cross encourages all eligible blood donors to make an appointment to donate blood soon to help prevent a shortage.

During the summer months, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed to meet the needs of patients. Vacations and summer activities are among the reasons regular donors may not find the time to give. But, patients don’t get a vacation from needing blood – the need is constant.

As a national network, the Red Cross has a unique responsibility to help ensure blood is available for patients whenever and wherever it is needed. By donating blood or platelets through the Red Cross, donors may be helping patients in their community or patients across the nation.

Red blood cells have a shelf life of only 42 days and platelets just five days, so they must constantly be replenished.

Minimum wage plan meets initial signature count

Minimum wage plan meets initial signature count
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A proposal to gradually raise Arkansas' minimum wage is one step closer to appearing on the November ballot after petitions for the measure passed an initial signature count. Secretary of State Mark Martin said Wednesday an initial count found that 64,000 signatures were submitted for the proposed initiated act backed by Give Arkansas a Raise Now. The group needs 62,507 signatures from registered voters to qualify for the ballot. The office is now checking to make sure the signatures are from registered voters. Clearing the initial count means supporters of the measure can have 30 more days to gather additional signatures if they fall short during the verification stage. The proposal would raise Arkansas' minimum wage from $6.25 an hour to $8.50 an hour by 2017. (Copyright 2014 The Associated Press.
