A Dangerous Combination
This weekend, a guy who was text messaging someone - slammed into the back of a BPD patrol car on I-84. The good news is the car was empty - the officers were handling a possible DUI case outside the car at the time! I don't know about you, but I see people driving and texting all the time. I think with the increase in texting, we're going to see more accidents like this one. It's NOT illegal to drive and text in Idaho, but it IS illegal in Washington and New Jersey.
Did you "Beat Coach Pete"?
Over the weekend, hundreds of people showed up to see if they could BEAT COACH PETE! They ran around the Boise State campus... and the 5k run raises money for Boise State's General Scholarship Fund.
322 people beat Coach Pete to the finish line! The coach is donating 5 bucks for every person who came in before he did. Now, if you didn't BEAT the coach, you may have been lucky enough to HIGH FIVE him instead - he was waiting at the finish line for the rest of the runners!
New First Dog!
The Obama family finally got their "FIRST DOG". He's a PORTUGUESE WATER DOG.
Sasha and Malia named him "Bo":
Bo is a gift from Senator Ted Kennedy! You may recall - President Obama told his daughters they had earned a new puppy after being so well behaved during the campaign. I'm sure we'll be hearing much more about Bo over the next four years!
