LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Crews of about a dozen boats from law enforcement and search-and-rescue agencies searched unsuccessfully in Lake Havasu for a possible drowning victim. Today's News-Herald reports that the search was conducted yesterday after the unidentified man reportedly went under water and didn't surface.

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico man has been convicted of racketeering and conspiracy for his role in an interstate methamphetamine trafficking ring. The Alamogordo Daily News reports that a jury found Matias Loza guilty last week of working with AZ Boys' - a criminal syndicate authorities say brought large amounts of meth from Phoenix. Loza was then sentenced to 10 years in prison.

TUSAYAN, Ariz. (AP) - A lightning-sparked fire in the Kaibab National Forest has forced officials to temporarily detour portions of the Arizona Trail. Officials say large signs and detour maps have been posted in the fire zone so visitors will know which areas to avoid as crews use managed ignitions along the eastern edge of the blaze.

PHOENIX (AP) - The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture's quest for a way to keep its accreditation status has school board members at odds with the foundation operating it. The Scottsdale-based Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation said last week it would not independently incorporate the school as a way to stay accredited. The Higher Learning Commission changed its by-laws in 2012 to prohibit accreditation for schools that are operating divisions of a larger organization.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Staffing and debt may delay a planned merger between Arizona State University and Thunderbird School of Global Management. The Republic reports that ASU officials are concerned about inheriting debt from Thunderbird, which has faced financial struggles recently. Thunderbird was first established in Glendale in 1946. It abandoned a proposal earlier this year to partner with a for-profit educational company.
