That’s News to you answers

Sun., Sept. 8, 2013

Here are the answers to this week’s newspaper quiz:

1. B. Spokane Garry was given that name when he was sent to a white school near Winnipeg, Manitoba. Research by Barry Moses and Brian Huseland revealed that his Salish given name was Slough-Keetcha.

2. A. The state Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation has been awarding grants since 2007 to preserve Heritage Barns. It has $500,000 in grants that it will distribute over the next two years.

3. D. A teen who turned himself in said they planned to use some $27,000 worth of stuffed animals to mimic a YouTube video.

4. C. About 63 percent of same-sex marriages involve two women, the department’s figures show. About 14 percent of same-sex marriages involve spouses from another state, compared to 4 percent of marriages for opposite-sex couples.

Now that you’ve warmed up your news sense, why not go online to spokesman.com/newsquiz and try to win a prize? Top entries in the online quiz go into a weekly drawing for a $50 gift card to the Davenport Hotel. All entries this week go into a drawing for four tickets and a parking pass to the WSU-Southern Utah football game in Pullman next weekend.

To give our newspaper readers a little boost, some of the questions in the newspaper quiz are repeated in the online version.

Last week’s winners are Michael Folsom, of Cheney, who won the Davenport gift card; Judy Rose, of Spokane, who won movie tickets; and Steve Sibulsky, of Coeur d’Alene, and John Owen, of Spokane Valley, who each won tickets to an EWU football game.
