Here are the answers to this week’s quiz:
1. E. This year’s tree came from Schroeder’s Forevergreens near Neshkoro, Wis., owned by Tom and Sue Schroeder. The states listed are the top 5 Christmas tree producing states, in order. Washington is No. 6.
2. B. Detectives took the contents of Julie Weflen’s work locker from the BPA’s substation on East Hawthorne Road into evidence Tuesday. Her locker was apparently left undisturbed until a remodeling project a few years ago, when the items were removed and put in a container that was kept in a secure location. Officials have not said what, if any, new leads have come from the discovery.
3. D. Christianity, Islam and Voodoo are all state religions in Benin. Odinani is not a religion but the traditional cultural beliefs and practices of the Igbo people of West Africa.
4. C. Aminta Granera had decided to become a nun and had begun her novitiate at the convent of the Sisters of the Assumption in Guatemala City. She left the convent to return to Nicaragua and serve as a courier and organizer for the Sandinistas in the mid-1970s.
5. D. Detlev Hager was pulled over in Tuscaloosa, Ala., for driving a rental car with no license plates. When he was unable to produce proper identification, he was arrested under Alabama’s stringent new illegal-immigration law. The charges were dropped after he showed his passport and German driver’s license in court.
