President Biden is not letting off the gas pedal on coronavirus vaccinations. Speaking at the White House, Biden noted that during his first 150 days in office, 300-million doses were administered. The President is looking to have 70-percent of U.S. adults get at least one shot by July 4th.        The man accused in a string of shootings northwest of Phoenix on Thursday is facing a first-degree murder charge. Peoria police say 19-year-old Ashin Tricarico was also booked into jail Friday on aggravated assault, drive by shooting and endangerment charges. The spree left one person dead and 12 others wounded.       Heavy rain and thunderstorms are moving ashore along the Gulf Coast as the region braces for a tropical storm. The National Hurricane Center says tropical storm conditions are reaching the Gulf Coast this afternoon from Intercoastal City, Louisiana to Mobile, Alabama. The storm is expected to drench the region through the weekend.       Former President Trump doesn't like the thought of boycotting next year's China Olympic Games. In a discussion with Real Clear Investigations, Trump said boycotting the Games wouldn't be fair to those who compete. He added it would hurt America's reputation with other countries.       A review of a revamped College Football Playoff proposal is officially underway. On Friday, the CFB management committee looked over the working group's plan to expand the playoff to 12 teams. Executive Director Bill Hancock said, " This is a very exciting time for college football."        A new Florida bill allowing paramedics to treat and use ambulances for injured police canines is being given the go-ahead.
