FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - President Donald Trump's decision to drastically reduce and break up a national monument in Utah wasn't the only blow Native American tribes say they suffered last week. Trump's proclamation changes the makeup of a tribal advisory commission for Bears Ears National Monument. It adds a San Juan County, Utah, commissioner who supported peeling back protections for the land. The new commissioner, now Rebecca Benally, joins representatives of five tribes, serving as a planted ally of the reduction.

PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a pregnant woman has died from injuries suffered when the vehicle she was driving collided with a light pole in west Phoenix as she was trying to pass another vehicle. Phoenix police say 39-year-old Anna Ruth Garcia Flores later died at a hospital from the injuries she suffered in the one-vehicle collision early Sunday. Her child didn't survive.

PHOENIX (AP) - State Sen. Steve Montenegro says he's joining the race for Congress to replace Rep. Trent Franks, who resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations. Montenegro worked as Franks' district director and said Monday he had told Franks he would run to replace him in the upcoming special election.

PHOENIX (AP) - Police are searching for suspects after at least nine cars were vandalized at a north Phoenix apartment complex. They say two of the cars appeared to have "KKK" scratched onto the hoods. Police say the vandalism occurred Saturday between 4 a.m. and noon at the Silver Creek Apartments near 43rd and Peoria avenues. Some of the car owners believe it will cost them at least $300 to repair the damage.
