Now that you’ve warmed up your news sense, try the online version of the quiz at www.spokesman.com/newsquiz. Top entries to the online 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 and four tickets to the EWU-Utah men’s basketball game on Feb. 16.
