That’s NEWS to you answers

SUNDAY, DEC. 8, 2013

Here are the answers to this week’s That’s News to You quiz:

1. E. Because some American Indians took different names at different periods of their lives, and white researchers came up with different phonetic spellings of the same name, all those are likely versions of names he used. Some white histories use Lokout. Photographer Edward Curtis, whose picture helped researchers make the connection, used Luqaiot.

2. E. West Valley band boosters, who were selling snacks at the I-90 rest stop at Sprague, found the ring that Jesse Kearney and Amanda Stout had lost there. It was dropped into the donation box; boosters found it while they were counting money and contacted the frantic couple.

3. B. John Ahern, who lost a Spokane City Council race to incumbent Jon Snyder, asked for a recount of about 1,600 ballots. But Ahern lost to Snyder by nearly 5,700 votes, so even if all the recounted ballots are marked for him, he’ll still be behind.

4. C. Caruso played Brigitta Von Trapp on the NBC broadcast of “The Sound of Music.”

5. A. The Huskies hired BSU Coach Chris Petersen to replace Sarkisian, who is going to the University of Southern California.
