Putting people back to work, getting around the gem show

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Happy Sunday!  Here's what we're working on at KOLD News 13 and FOX 11 News.

Hiring for Gem show help has highlighted a big problem in southern Arizona… joblessness.  Reporter Craig Reck talks to an agency trying to put more people back to work for Tucson's largest tourism event and beyond.

Speaking of Gem show, are you having trouble getting around the event?  Is travel any easier now that the modern streetcar is operating?  Reporter Christine Pae will be out gauging just how well people are getting around, and whether shuttle services are filling in any travel gaps.

Sun is out for most of southern Arizona today, but it was a very different story yesterday.  Take a look at some of the pictures of snow and flooded washes sent in to Tucson News Now… and send your own here!

We'll see you starting on KOLD News 13 Live at 5:30…

Then catch our sports team with all your Super Bowl Highlights on FOX 11 News at 9 and KOLD News 13 Live at 10.
