Phoenix

Pipeline on schedule to reopen today

A crippled pipeline that has created gasoline shortages and fueled frustrations for days is on schedule to resume bringing fuel to Phoenix today, officials said.

Officials at Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, which owns the pipeline, said a test on a bypassed portion of pipeline was successful Saturday.

Kinder Morgan spokesman Larry Pierce declined to specify when the pipeline would begin operating, but Gov. Janet Napolitano said she was told it would be working by mid-afternoon today.

Search crews find body of missing mother

Searchers found the body Saturday of a woman missing since a flash flood swept her home into a swollen creek a day earlier. Her young son, who had also been in the home, was found dead Friday.

Authorities also had been searching for a young girl, but after talking to the missing woman's husband they determined that no one else was in the house when it was swept away, Franklin County Fire Chief Gary Watts said Saturday.

Deputy Coroner Jerry Lamb identified the woman as Eugenie Ann McClease, 39.
