New local crime news site - AZNewsRoundup

A local crime news site has just launched, AZNEWSROUNDUP.com. According to an email from the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, the site will carry both Maricopa County and Arizona criminal justice news, updated daily. It's about time someone came up with a local alternative to the selection of news provided by the local print media. Between blognetnews (which carries local political blogs), and sites like this and phxnews.com, relying upon the Republic and Tribune for your local news is becoming less and less necessary. AZ News Roundup offers email subscriptions but no RSS feed yet. Let's hope that feature is added, which it probably will be shortly considering the county attorney's other sites (like illegalimmigrationjournal.com) offer RSS. RSS is the wave of the future for news on the internet.
