HERE

All that snow and all that rain created all this flooding in Spokane. And it ate up two cars. (SR)

The investigation into the South Hill murder of Doug Carlile expands to a North Dakota Indian tribe. (SR)

The Idaho Sheriffs’ Association supports letting Idahoans carry concealed firearms on college campuses. (KREM)

Coeur d’Alene man tries to escape police by climbing into an attic crawl space of a Coeur d’Alene car wash.

Crimea raises the possibility of actually joining Russia. (Washington Post)

How jerk Spider-Man stood up a cancer survivor. (Page Six)

The SAT nixes the writing test, returns to 1600, and takes out all them fancy smart-people words. (NY Times Magazine.)
