White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has resigned from her post, effective at the end of June.

The announcement, which was proclaimed by Donald Trump on Twitter today, comes after Huckabee Sanders' continued lack of press conferences, going 94 days without a media briefing, according to the New York Times.

Trump not-so-subtly hinted at a new career path for Huckabee Sanders, in the second of two tweets, saying she should follow in the footsteps of her father, Mike, by running for governor in the state of Arkansas.

....She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!

After one local teen died of a gunshot wound from an accidental shooting, police found a rocket propelled grenade launcher, an AK-47, several homemade pipe bombs and other weapons in the residence on the 8000 block of North Country Home Lane.

Luis Angel Lopez Jr., 17, died Friday, June 7 after being struck by an AK-47 round which was reportedly accidentally discharged by 19-year-old Raymundo Lopez-Casillas.

During the investigation of the shooting, detectives found suspected bombs inside the residence and quickly exited and called Pima Regional Bomb Squad.

All weapons and explosives were safely removed from the residence and the investigation has been turned over to federal authorities.

This article is an update of an original article published June 7:

In early 2006, when their self-titled debut hit the bins, it quickly became evident that these Goth-tinged/post-punk revivalists succeeded in creating a dark and debaucherous soundtrack for the scorned, marginalized and nihilistic to all sullenly pout and seductively sway their hips on the dancefloor to.

  • Several cats were exposed to a rabid skunk in Amado, according to the Pima Animal Care Center.
A dastardly skunk has left more than a dozen animals in quarantine after a confirmed case of rabies in Amado, according to the Pima Animal Care Center.

PACC was called on June 4 by a resident of the Southern Pima County enclave who reported that she and several of her cats had encountered a possibly rabid skunk.

The run-in reportedly occurred two weeks prior to the woman's call to PACC, according to the release, with 15 cats/kittens and two dogs removed from the property by animal protection officers.

Four of the kittens died, with two of the four testing positive for rabies, according to the release. The other kittens are in a 120-day quarantine due to not having a vaccine. The two dogs exposed will be placed in a 45-day quarantine, as they have been vaccinated against the disease.

The skunk is still on the lam, having evaded capture after its encounter with the four-legged compadres.

PACC Chief Veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Wilcox said anyone living in the Amado region that comes into regular contact with pets and livestock should remain under close examination, looking for changes in their health.

For more information or to report someone that's been exposed, contact the Pima County Health Department at (520) 724-7797.
