MORNING HEADLINES: Now with 108 percent more Christmas lolcats

Posted on Fri, Dec 17, 2010 at 10:10 AM

The Eastern Washington Eagles are set to square off against defending champion Villanova in the FCS semifinal at Roos Field. The top-ranked Eagles are playing without standout RB Taiwan Jones, so it'll be an uphill battle. Fans are encouraged to wear Santa hats to the game, because red is a color known for its soothing properties. (SR)
Police executed a search warrant on the home of Darryl Wayne Monzingo, a man in possession of "hundreds upon hundreds" of images containing child pornography. Or, as KHQ puts it, "Spokane Child Porn Suspect Arrested One Block From Elementary School." (KHQ)
Idaho ranks No. 8 in the nation for foreclosures, a statistic that includes one in every 205 homes in Ada County facing action. They only list the top 10, so it's unclear where Washington sits. C'mon, banks! Start foreclosing so we can catch up to those spud-slicers! (KHQ)
Thieves in Spokane Valley made off with part of an elaborate Christmas display, the third such robbery this year. Authorities aren't sure why this is happening (other than the fact that this is what teenagers do), but it's probably due to somebody starting a rumor that you can get high if you surround yourself with enough Christmas lights. Because teenagers will believe anything. (KXLY)
Avista Utilities is being fined $60,000 by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission for improperly handling customer accounts and disconnecting service for non-payment. It's unclear what the first half of the story has to do with the second half, but there you go. (KXLY)
