MORNING HEADLINES: A smoking hot weekend

Posted on Mon, Aug 29, 2011 at 9:05 AM

Scorch! — First off, yes, yesterday was the hottest day of the year at 94 degrees. Which means we're very dehydrated for work today and, of course, the climate control is broken at Inlander HQ. Awesome. It's all downhill from here. (SR)

Timeline! — The University of Idaho was in contact with Katy Benoit before she was killed by a professor she had a personal relationship with, Ernesto Bustamante. In fact, since Benoit first complained to UI on June 10, the school kept in contact with her. All the way through the day she was killed. (SR)

Shocking! — The Spokane Shock have a new head coach: Andy Olson. First he was a wide receiver for the team, then the offensive coordinator. Now, he's coach. It's like a fairy tale. (KXLY) 

That's nine! — Nine people in Idaho have been arrested for protesting "megaloads," the huge trucks ferrying equipment to Canada for a massive oil extraction project. Six were arrested in Moscow Friday, three more in Coeur d'Alene Saturday. (SR) 

C'mon, Irene! — Flooding, death, destruction. The tropical storm mayhem continues. (NYT)
