Bakers behind bars — Prisoners at the Airway Heights Corrections Center are working at the food factories, earning a small wage and learning valuable skills. The food goes to other prisons, Meals on Wheels programs and helps the prison gain revenue. (KXLY)

Health care battle — Republicans in the Senate attempted to repeal the health care law Wednesday but the Democratic majority fended it off. Now that federal judges have ruled parts of the law are unconstitutional, Democrats might not be able to keep fighting off repeal. (Washington Post)

Fire — Flames destroyed the historic Sister's Building in Coeur d'Alene this morning. The Sister's Building, built in 1880, was only being used for storage and the fire's origin is still unknown. (KREM)
