McCainTo no one’s surprise, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) announced his intention to run for re-election. After a distinguished military career and 5 ½ years as a POW in Vietnam, McCain retired from the military and entered politics. McCain was initially elected to the House of Representatives in 1982, followed by his first Senate election in 1986. Since his initial election to the Senate, McCain has won re-election four times.   

For John McCain, 34 years in Congress will not be enough, so he wants another six years as U.S. Senator. In fact, he told one reporter that his Senate career was “just getting started.” If elected again, McCain will be 86 at the end of his next term.

The growing bison herd occupying the northern reaches of Arizona's Grand Canyon National Park is decimating the area's ecosystem, and some conservationists are ready to call in the hunters.

The 600-head herd rarely if ever strays from the 1,900-square-mile park, where hunting is banned. If they were to stampede into the adjacent Kaibab National Forest, they might find themselves in the crosshairs of hunters with permits to bag them, but inside the park they are safe - and free to wreak havoc.
