Competitors will meet in Lake Havasu City for the Almost 9th Annual Dashboard Cookie Competition. The baking contest, in which competitors roll the dough, place it on cookie sheets and set it on dashboards, is called “Almost 9th” because the cookies were eaten before they could be judged during the inaugural event in 2009, according to the contest’s website.

The event coincides with the arrival of cyclists raising money for the Journey of Hope, an annual cross-country bicycle-trek fundraiser for people with disabilities, the Republic reported.

Officials give competitors tubes of chocolate chip cookie dough at 7:15 a.m. and reveal a secret theme, the Republic reported. Last year’s theme was national monuments; the five teams of cyclists have 15 minutes to create cookies that match the theme, the newspaper reported.

The baking sheets must be on the dashboards of cars that are parked on a shade-free road near the London Bridge.

Judging takes place at 11:30 a.m. Friday’s forecast calls for temperatures as high as 113 degrees, the Republic reported.

Marietta city councilman seeks restraining order against one of his fellow councilmen

A strange dispute on the Marietta City Council: A councilman sought a restraining order against one of his fellow councilmen.

Video from the most recent Marietta City Council meeting shows a civil discussion, but it’s after the meeting when tensions allegedly boiled over.

Councilman Reggie Copeland did not want to appear on camera, but told Channel 2's Justin Wilfon he felt threatened by Councilman Andy Morris, so much so, he sought a restraining order against him.

Copeland told Wilfon the tense moments between the two men go back to earlier this year, including at an April meeting, when he says morris gave him the finger, although that’s unclear in the video. Then, according to this police report he filed with Marietta police, Copeland said he felt threatened by Morris after last week's meeting.

At one point he said he told Morris, “Sir, you’re in my space, please back up off of me.” Morris allegedly told Copeland, “How much space do you have?  What you going to do?”

Earlier this week a judge threw out Copeland’s request for a restraining order, saying he could not have been in reasonable fear for his safety. 

Morris did not want to talk on camera, but told Wilfon the judge’s ruling speaks for itself.

It's unclear what sparked the alleged feud. Marietta residents said they just hope it’s over.

Copeland said he might appeal the judge's ruling.

The Marietta City Council meets again next Tuesday.  

Hundreds of Pittsburgh protesters marching over death of Antwon Rose shut down traffic for miles

Hundreds of marchers took to the streets of Pittsburgh Thursday night, protesting the fatal police shooting of a teenager during a traffic stop Tuesday night.

>> Read more trending news 

Traffic was brought to a standstill as protesters spilled onto Pittsburgh’s Parkway East.

The protest was described by WPXI reporters on the scene as “tense,” but “peaceful so far.”

Marchers, holding signs and cell phones, sat down in the street, blocking traffic and causing a back up for miles. 

Protestors were told to voluntarily disperse by 1 a.m. Friday. Pennsylvania State Police were preparing to open up the highway, according to state police major commander William Teper. 

Residents are angry and upset over the fatal police shooting of unarmed 17-year-old Antwon Rose.

Allegheny County police officials said that Rose was a passenger in a vehicle stopped in East Pittsburgh around 8:20 p.m. Tuesday because it fit the description of a car seen fleeing the area of a shooting in the nearby borough of North Braddock. As an officer handcuffed the driver of the car, which investigators said had bullet damage to the back window, Rose and a second passenger got out of the car and ran. 

Footage of the shooting posted on Facebook Tuesday shows the scene from a distance. The 18-second video shows Rose and the other passenger, who has not been found by police, get out of the car and make a break for the yard between two nearby houses.

Three shots are heard and one of the passengers appears to fall into the grass.

Rose, who police officials said was struck three times, was taken to McKeesport Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

The Allegheny County medical examiner on Thursday ruled the teen’s death a homicide. 

The East Pittsburgh police officer who shot and killed Rose  was sworn in just hours before the fatal encounter.

Mayor Louis Payne told WPXI Wednesday that the unidentified officer who killed Rose previously spent seven years working in other departments, but confirmed that he was working his first shift following his official swearing in with the East Pittsburgh Police Department.
