SPOKANE, Wash. - In case you're wondering, it's not just you.  There are a lot of people in the Spokane area who have come down with a nasty virus.

The Spokane Regional Health District said Thursday that they are seeing a lot of cases of Norovirus.  Norovirus is a small, easily transmitted virus that feels like the flu.  Those who have it report symptoms including vomiting and diarrhea.

BOISE, Idaho- Governor C-L "Butch" Otter is looking into bringing an in-your-face advertising campaign on the perils of methamphetamine to Idaho.

Otter met with the billionaire founder of the Montana Meth Project this week. The ad campaign aims to dissuade children between the ages of 12 and 17 from trying meth. The program was created by Tom Siebel, a part-time Montana resident who created a software company he later sold to Oracle Corporation for $5.8 billion.
