Refuse to infuse

Refuse to infuse

The Idaho State Police are cracking down on the practice of bars and restaurants infusing alcohol with other flavors, such as bacon and basil.

Authorities claim it's a food-safety issue, but we suspect Idaho's spud purists just doesn't want anything to come between vodka drinkers and the taste of its famous potatoes.



Best in show: It's time for walkies. CNBC begins coverage Monday night at 8 of "The 137th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show" from Madison Square Garden.

Noting the popularity of the frolicking puppies in Puppy Bowl XI on Animal Planet last Sunday during Super Bowl XLVII, ESPN has scheduled counterprogramming during the dog show: football players romping, rough-housing and playing with chew toys.



Speaking of football: Recalling his high school football days 65 years earlier, an 82-year-old Longview man Friday tackled a 27-year-old burglary suspect, enabling police to collar the guy.

If that sounds like a miracle, well, it is: The tackling octogenarian's name is Terry Miracle.
