A look at some of today's top stories, the weather forecast and a peek back in history.

Two Republicans running for the House of Representatives, Eli Crane and Juan Ciscomani, took PPP loans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project, called the Gilmore, includes 194,000 square feet of new commercial development along with about 300 apartment units, the developer said.

Say goodbye to metro Phoenix restaurants including House of Tricks in Tempe, Pomo in Gilbert and Roy's in Chandler. Here's what closed recently.

Today, you can expect a slight chance of thunderstorms with a high near 104 degrees. Mostly clear at night, with a low near 85 degrees. Get the full forecast here.

Today in history

  • On this day in 1934, Adolf Hitler launched his “blood purge” of political and military rivals in Germany in what came to be known as “The Night of the Long Knives.”

  • In 1971, the Supreme Court ruled, 6-3, that the government could not prevent The New York Times or The Washington Post from publishing the Pentagon Papers. A Soviet space mission ended in tragedy when three cosmonauts aboard Soyuz 11 were found dead of asphyxiation inside their capsule after it had returned to Earth.

  • In 1982, the proposed Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution expired, having failed to receive the required number of ratifications for its adoption, despite having its seven-year deadline extended by three years.

  • In 2013, 19 elite firefighters known as members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots were killed battling a wildfire northwest of Phoenix after a change in wind direction pushed the flames back toward their position.
