Oh, you shouldn’t have: A Renton man has been arrested on charges he sold phony Dale Chihuly glass sculptures to a collector who planned to donate them to Gonzaga University.

Tappa Kegga Dae: In a program designed to train the next generation of craft brewers, students at a Colorado college can now get credit for brewing and drinking beer.

Watch this drive: President Barack Obama, who proclaimed Thursday to be Be Nice to George W. Bush Day, and former presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter helped dedicate the 43rd president’s library in Dallas.
