ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say flooding has claimed a life in New Mexico.

State police say the body of a man was found yesterday in a partially submerged vehicle in Ash Canyon, about 150 miles from Albuquerque.

The death is the first related to massive flooding in New Mexico following record rains last week.

Gov. Susana Martinez issued a state of emergency on Friday to open up recovery funding for local communities hit hard by the flooding.

LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) — Whether they think he got away with murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin or was just a neighborhood watch volunteer "standing his ground," many Americans can't seem to get enough of George Zimmerman. And he can't seem to stop giving it to them.

So it's hardly surprising that everything Zimmerman does produces a Twitterverse explosion and spins into heavy news coverage. Comedian Deon Cole nailed it when he said being found not guilty doesn't make Zimmerman a free man.

He certainly hasn't been free from the spotlight. He's been stopped for speeding and toured the factory where the pistol from the shooting was made. This week, Zimmerman was handcuffed in the street after an alleged scuffle with his estranged wife and father-in-law.

Crisis management expert Mark McClennan calls the pattern of fame a two-way street.

DENVER (AP) — National Guard troops have resumed truck convoys to rescue people stranded by floodwaters in the cut-off Colorado community of Lyons.

An estimated 2,500 residents are being evacuated in an operation that began yesterday.

Helicopters are being used to airlift 295 residents of another isolated town, Jamestown.

The National Guard has also been airdropping food, water and other supplies to people stranded in narrow canyons in the Rocky Mountain foothills.

Evacuations are voluntary, but those who choose to stay with their homes could face weeks without power, water, sewer or cellphone service.

Days of heavy rain sent water rushing from the mountains into communities below, inundating farms and destroyed roads and bridges, turning neighborhoods and towns into islands.

The flooding affects parts of a 4,500-square-mile area, almost the size of Connecticut.

At least four deaths have been blamed on the flooding. Officials in hard-hit Boulder County say more than 170 people are unaccounted for. But they say that just means they haven't been heard from, not that they're actually missing.
