SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Indications are that former Eagles coach Andy Reid will interview for the Arizona Cardinals head coaching job either Thursday or Friday. Reid spent more than 8 hours Wednesday conferring with officials from the Kansas City Chiefs, who flew to Philadelphia to speak with him. Neither Kansas City nor Arizona seems close to making a hire, despite reports Tuesday that Reid's hiring in Arizona was imminent. Chiefs president Mark Donovan, part of the group that came to Philadelphia for the interview, is a former Eagles executive who is close to Reid and to Tom Heckert, the former Eagles general manager who was fired Monday in Cleveland.

CARLOS J. BALSAS apparently has a thing for state and national monuments. A former Arizona State University professor and urban planner, he led a movement to revitalize Arizona's aged and decrepit state Capitol. But on Saturday, when Balsas, 41, of Tempe, Ariz., came to the Liberty Bell Center, preservation was the furthest thing from his mind. About 10:05 a.m., a security officer told Balsas that he had to check his bags. While security personnel examined his backpack, Balsas said, "I have explosives in there," according to police.

YARNELL, Ariz. - A fast-moving wildfire killed 19 firefighters Sunday afternoon after the blaze raced through an Arizona community, a state forestry official told the Associated Press. Forestry spokesman Art Morrison said the firefighters were caught by the fire near the central Arizona town of Yarnell, about 85 miles northwest of Phoenix. He said the firefighters were forced to deploy their fire shelters, tent-like structures meant to shield firefighters from flames and heat. Earlier Sunday, the 2,000-acre wildfire prompted evacuations of 50 homes in several communities.

Dana Milbank is a Washington Post columnist Jan Brewer has lost her head. The Arizona governor, seemingly determined to repel every last tourist dollar from her pariah state, has sounded a new alarm about border violence. "Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded," she announced on local television. Ay, caramba! Those dark-skinned foreigners are now severing the heads of fair-haired Americans?

Arizona leftfielder Luis Gonzalez reacted angrily yesterday after the Diamondbacks' top executive told a newspaper there have been "whispers" about whether the five-time All-Star used performance-enhancing drugs. Diamondbacks managing general partner Ken Kendrick did not accuse the popular player of cheating. But he mentioned Gonzalez's name in a rambling interview with the Arizona Republic about steroids in baseball, prompting Gonzalez to call a news conference 2 hours before the Diamondbacks hosted San Francisco.

Community newspapers, freebie shoppers and suburban dailies haven't captured headlines in the recent spate of big-media mergers. But that doesn't mean Wall Street has ignored them. The Journal Register Co., of Trenton, owns the Penny Pincher shopper in Pottstown, the Town Talk newspapers in Media, and the Main Line Times in Ardmore, in addition to 220 other daily and nondaily newspapers. Its stock price has soared on speculation about possible plans to unload newspapers. Stoking that speculation is Journal Register's sale of its St. Louis newspapers in June to Pulitzer Inc., owner of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, for $165 million.

PHOENIX - Key information about Jared Lee Loughner's mental state - and the fact that no one did much to get him help - emerged as a key theme in roughly 2,700 pages of investigative papers released Wednesday. Still, there was nothing to indicate exactly why he targeted former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in a deadly attack in 2011. Almost everyone who crossed paths with Loughner in the year before he shot Giffords described a man who was becoming more unhinged and delusional by the day. He got fired from a clothing store and thrown out of college, shaved his head and got tattoos of bullets on his shoulder.

It's bad enough that an outrage was perpetrated last week against the voters of Maricopa County, Ariz. It would be far worse if we ignored the warning that the disenfranchisement of thousands of its citizens offers our nation. In November, one of the most contentious campaigns in our history could end in a catastrophe for our democracy. A major culprit would be the U.S. Supreme Court, and specifically the conservative majority that gutted the Voting Rights Act in 2013. The facts of what happened in Arizona's presidential primary are gradually penetrating the nation's consciousness.

It's so hot in Phoenix you need oven mitts to drive your car. The last time they saw rain there was in 2000, when The Perfect Storm opened. Can you rent a boat to cross the Salt River? Don't bother. Just walk. Har, har. It's great to have another "Ph" city to trash. The Daily News got the fun rolling last week when columnist Don Russell called Phoenix a "loose accumulation of crummy vinyl-sided houses occupied by sunburned retirees . . . a bland spread of chemical-fertilized lawn in the middle of the desert, crisscrossed by smog-filled freeways and chilled with central air. " Arizona Republic columnist E.J. Montini fired back, observing that while Phoenix residents escape the summer heat by heading to California "where parents lounge near the sloshing ocean while children scour the beach for seashells," Philadelphians head " 'down the shore', where parents get sloshed in the lounges while children scour the beaches for hypodermic needles.
