Ok, there REALLY IS a restaurant in Boise called "Boobies" ... I'm dead serious. It just opened...

Well, as you can imagine - it's causing some controversy! Some parents are upset about their kids seeing the sign and giggling... the owners say it's a tribute to their DOG, and they don't plan to change the name. At least one person called the city of Boise to complain about the new restaurant. We called the mayor's office and a spokesman told us there is no city ordinance that prohibits the name. So, BOOBIES it is.

Attention all BRONCO FANS...

Ticket prices for the 2009 season are going way up. We've learned the price for a season ticket between the ten yard lines will be at least $70 a game in the fall! (Yikes...)

In this tough economy, that's not good news. But Bronco Fans who bleed BLUE AND ORANGE say they'll pay it. We'll see if it has an impact on game attendance... but something tells me people WILL PAY to see their beloved Broncos.

Today, I'm heading to the Grove Hotel to emcee the Dress For Success Celebrity Teapot Extravaganza with KTVB's Mark Johnson! He's always fun to emcee fundraisers with, and we've been doing this event together for 7 years now. We'll help auction off handmade teapots created by local celebs... raising money for a great cause in our community.

Dress for Success (DFS) helps women break free of the cycle of poverty and government assistance - by providing them with interview clothing and coaching them in basic interview etiquette. It's a pretty incredible program! Seeing women get back on their feet is truly inspiring.

As promised, here's another weekly cartoon installment of "NEWS TO ME" created by our camera man Nick McMullin! It stars Edgar Linares - or Super Edgar!!!! He was so excited to have a cartoon all about him, take a look:
