MORNING HEADLINES: Brought to you by the letter 'C'

Cancer causers clog crap-cleaner construction-- For now, permission to build a big new sewage treatment plant for Spokane County is being withheld. The concern of the Spokane Tribe is that no limit is set on PCBs -- potentially cancer causing agents. Those PCBs can infect fish, making them inedible. (SR)

Cougflation -- At Washington State University, despite efforts to increase revenue by dramatically increasing the number of students, tuition is going up 16 percent, over 5 times the rate of inflation. At the considerably cheaper Eastern Washington University, tuition is only increasing about 11 percent. (KREM)

Congressional creep -- By now, everyone knows that Congressman Anthony Weiner lied a whole lot about sending naughty pictures to young woman throughout the nation. As he finally admitted, he's carried on six such cybersexual relationships in the last three years. This link shows him lying, bald-faced and angrily, to an ABC News reporter. (ABC)

Cookware criminal -- A man is standing trial, accused of stealing but a single sheet of tinfoil. His confrontation with a Rite Aid employee went sour, and now he's being charged with first-degree robbery. Foiled again. (KXLY)
