On the Web: Now that you’ve warmed up your news sense, why not try the online version of the quiz at www.spokesman. com/newsquiz? Top entries in the quiz go into a weekly drawing for a $50 gift card to the Davenport Hotel, and all entries this week go into a drawing for movie tickets. To give our newspaper readers a slight edge, several of these questions also appear in the online version.

Last week’s winners are John Owen, of Spokane, who won the $50 gift card; Shawna Manion and Tina Ropp, both of Spokane, who each won four tickets to the North Idaho Fair; Sharon Hamilton, of Veradale, who won three tickets to a Spokane Indians game; and Richard O’Brien, of Spokane, who won two tickets to an Indians game.
