Posted By on Fri, Jul 29, 2011 at 8:06 AM

Red Cross needs financial transfusion -- With the national Red Cross organization suffering a $250 million deficit, will have a regional impact, as employee hours are reduced and costs for classes are increased. (SR)

Drive-Thru Diner -- A driver, running a red light, was hit by a car, and sent careening into Molly's Restaurant. Fortunately, nobody was majorly hurt. (KREM)

Technically drinkable -- Good news, Athol, Idaho, residents. Your water has returned to within the federally-mandated limits for acceptable levels of arsenic. (KXLY)

Attack averted? Fort Hood, site of the Fort Hood massacre that left 13 people dead, may have narrowly averted another terrorist attack. A soldier was arrested in a motel room near the base in possession of "bomb-making materials" including, chillingly, Christmas lights. (NYT)
