|Arizona Getaway: Ghost hunting at the Copper Queen Hotel
One of the last remaining historical gems of the Southwest is the Copper Queen Hotel in Bisbee. It opened in 1902 and is Arizona's oldest continually running hotel.
The Copper Queen Hotel is located in the heart of town and is Bisbee's only full-service hotel.
The hotel has seen many celebrities grace its halls such as John Wayne, Harry Houdini, Julia Roberts, Marlon Brando and Lee Marvin.
All rooms are non-smoking and no two are the same. There are seven specialty rooms available upon request. There is one handicapped-equipped room.
As a historic hotel with antiques throughout, pets are not allowed.
It's been four years since blood diamonds got the full Hollywood treatment, in the form of a Leonardo DiCaprio thriller.
More recently, they've been in the news thanks to the brief glimpse the world got into the life of supermodel Naomi Campbell in her testimony in the war-crimes trial of Charles Taylor.
It might seem, to the casual observer, that blood diamonds belong to the recent past, that they are a problem that has been solved. And to a certain extent, that's true. The certification scheme known as the Kimberley Process drew a boundary between legitimate and illegitimate trade back in 2003.

Many firms in West don't have disaster plans, survey finds. - The Arizona Republic
Petsmart has one. So does Phelps Dodge.
But many other companies based in the Western United States don't have emergency plans, according to a survey released Wednesday by AT&T Inc.
The report, which looked at businesses in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah, found that about half of them had a business continuity plan to deal with disasters. AT&T surveyed 100 senior technology executives with business-planning responsibilities in the Western states. More......

Mystery of Arizona's Meteor Crater Solved
The space rock that carved Meteor Crater in Arizona hit the planet much more slowly than astronomers once figured, but still 10 times faster than a rifle bullet.
The new analysis, announced today, explains why there's a lot less melted rock in the crater than expected. The mystery has dogged researchers for years.
The big hole in the ground -- 570 feet deep and 4,100 feet (1.25 kilometers) across -- was blown into existence 50,000 years ago by an asteroid roughly 130 feet (40 meters) wide. To read more click here......
