PHOENIX (AP) - A Sun City medical marijuana dispensary has won a $190,000 judgment against Maricopa County after it was refused zoning clearance to open the facility. The judge ruled that the county didn't comply with the state's voter-approved medical marijuana law when it blocked White Mountain Health Center.

SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) - Air tankers are on standby to help fight a 240 acre wildfire in the Huachuca (wah-CHOO'-kuh) Mountains in southeastern Arizona. More than 400 people are now assigned to the fire, including 10 ground crews, several engines and numerous helicopters. Crews are clearing lines on the fire's flanks but there is zero containment so far.

SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. (AP) - The Apache Sitgreaves National Forest is joining northern Arizona agencies in limiting where people can smoke and build fires. The eastern Arizona forest plans to enact the lowest level of fire restrictions Tuesday. That means campfires are allowed only in developed campgrounds, and smoking is limited to within enclosed vehicles, in buildings and in areas cleared of all flammable material.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Phoenix Suns defeated the Sacramento Kings 104-99 last night night in the season finale for both teams. The Suns outscored the Kings 33-25 in the fourth quarter to snap a three-game losing streak. It was a disappointing season for the Suns, who missed the playoffs despite a dramatic turnaround under rookie coach Jeff Hornacek.
