MORNING HEADLINES: It's a petroleum, stolen car and nuclear day

Posted on Tue, May 11, 2010 at 8:09 AM

Run! It's always smart to try and outrun cops in a stolen car. At least, that wisdom has ruled for the second day in a row now as Spokane County sheriff deputies attempted last night to pull over a Jeep that they determined was stolen. Instead of pulling over, the driver of said Jeep blew through a stop sign, drove over a fence and hit a house. The driver then pulled away, rammed the deputies' car and (passenger in tow) took off on foot. All for naught — they were caught. (KREM)

Cagey jail Spokane County commissioners are stilllllll deciding where to put their new jail. Help them figure it out tomorrow, when they'll take public testimony on the whole shebang. (SR) 

Coaching behavior Parents in Post Falls are petitioning the school district there to set up a code of ethics for the athletics department. The specifics aren't clear, but it appears some coaches lack the desired behavioral rules. Like maybe when they torture the kid with glasses and make him do push-ups in front of everybody when the coach knows the kid can only do, like, five. (It still hurts, OK?) (KREM)

Two better than one? With the Gulf oil spill still spilling, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar will unveil today a plan to split the agency that oversees offshore drilling into two separate bodies. Fingers crossed that it will plug the leak. (WSJ)

Finnish-ing nukes Finland has decided to bury its radioactive waste for 100,000 years, or roughly the amount of time it will take the country to become a superpower. (NYT)
