Crash kills two teens
Two 17-year-old boys were killed in a car crash near Post Falls last night, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office. A Jaguar convertible they were in left the roadway on Hayden Ave. and crashed through a fence, then into a line of trees before striking a gas line. Deputies say alcohol was present at the scene and they are investigating if it was a factor, according to a news release. 

All in good fun
Rep. Matt Shea, Rep. Bob McCaslin and Sen. Mike Padden all participated in a debate with the University High School debate team last night. The crowd had a laugh when Shea argued for free college tuition, or when McCaslin argued against the war on drugs, because, you know, those are positions the Republicans would never actually take.
