Monday's news

On Monday's mighty Scott Chicken show (Radio KYA and Super listen on line open these URLs in your favorite audio player thingy: KYA, Super CFL it's all about the boobies. Well, the first story anyway...

In Lynnwood if you heard that a woman had $26,000 in her bra you'd assume she'd had an expensive round of plastic surgery. In Spokane she's just a thief.
A fraud bust, indeed: Spokane County sheriff's deputies say a woman was hiding nearly $26,000 in her bra when she was booked into jail for investigation of theft.

Guy sells his blood to be able to afford his Packers season tickets. Then it turns out that had he not donated all that blood he might have died from a blood disease. Naturally, the team is sending him to the Packers hall of fame!
To afford his season tickets without taking money from his family, he began selling his blood for $15 per pint. His doctor later found that Becker's father died at age 43 of a condition in which the blood retains too much iron. The only treatment is to remove the iron by giving blood. By that time Becker had sold 145 pints to pay for his season tickets. He said if he hadn't, he too may have died young.

Insert inappropriate Airplane or Mission Impossible reference here. The great Peter Graves is gone.

In a bow to the old Dead Milkmen song Stuart, Kennewick is installing artificial burrows for burrowing owls.
From the article:Volunteers and biologists with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have been installing artificial burrows to encourage the small owls to nest. The burrows are made of plastic barrels, pipe and a bucket.

From the song:
Anyway, 10:30, the other night, I go out in my yard, and there's
the Wurster kid, looking up in the tree. I say, "What are
you looking for?" He says "I'm looking for my burrow owl."
I say, "Jumping Jesus on a Pogo Stick. Everybody knows
the burrow owl lives. In a hole. In the ground. Why the hell do you
think they call it a burrow owl, anyway?"

In non-music news, people love that 3D Johnny Depp!
Alice is still ruling the movie palace. Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" easily remained the No. 1 weekend draw with $62 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Disney fantasy has climbed to a $208.6 million total domestically, becoming the first $200 million hit released this year.

Ok, remind me not to stand behind Mrs. Chicken when she's backing up, just on the off chance she's really trying to bump me off.
Sandy Telford ran over her husband, Terry, as she backed down the driveway of their rural property in the Hawke's Bay region, 350 kilometers (220 miles) north-east of Wellington, the Dominion Post newspaper reported.
