There will be a protest against rising tuition costs and the falling quality of education in Arizona in front of the University of Arizona Administration Building tomorrow at noon.
The Atlantic reported that the state of Arizona has cut higher education funding by 50% and increased tuition costs by 78.4% from 2008 to 2013.

The Bashful Bandit has been remodeled and will be featured on a new Travel Channel reality show called American Road House. It's like Bar Rescue but for biker bars. The episode won't air until early 2014. We hear that the bar has been redesigned to attract a wider audience. The bar is famous for being a gritty biker pub. There will be drink specials and live music to celebrate the grand re-opening.
The party starts at 7 p.m. The bar is located at 3686 E Speedway Blvd. Send us pictures at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them on The Range tomorrow morning.
