That’s News to you answers

Here are the answers to this week’s newspaper edition of That’s News to You.

1. C. Missoula author Larry Pointer, who wrote a book in 1977 that said Butch Cassidy lived and worked in Spokane for years under the name William T. Phillips, recently wrote a new book that says he was wrong and Phillips was someone who knew and probably rode with Cassidy, William Wilcox.

2. B. Blair Ulring, former police chief of Stockton, Calif., listed two degrees on his resume that may be from a diploma mill. City officials, who said they hadn’t verified his education before making him a finalist, announced the day after the story ran that Ulring withdrew for “personal reasons.”

3. D. The invasive species councils of Washington, Idaho and Oregon have launched a campaign to eliminate feral pigs, which are damaging habitat and preying on wildlife and livestock. It’s called “Squeal on Pigs.”

4. A. The tree will come from the Colville National Forest, where employees will be looking for a suitable Englemann spruce, grand fir or subalpine fir.

5. C. Ichiro started with the Mariners in 2001 and was named American League Rookie of the Year and MVP that year.
