Dad kills grizzly with a bow as it attacks son

Hunting season in Wyoming always brings people and grizzly bears together in a manner that is not especially good for either.

Bears know the hunters have meat. After more than 200 years of killing since Lewis and Clark the grizzly bears that have survived are generally less aggressive than the ones the two explorers encountered.

It is simple genetics. The aggressive bears were killed off. The ones more wary of humans survived.

Vandals' problems keep growing

As if Idaho was not having enough problems with its football program, the Vandals again find themselves on the wrong end of jokes.

Two weeks ago it was their football uniforms. This week it is their cheerleaders’ uniforms — deemed too skimpy by some — that are garnering the wrong kind of attention.

Boise State sophomore safety Jeron Johnson said Tuesday his ejection from Saturday’s game at Oregon won’t prevent him from playing physical defense.

Great American Beer Festival almost sold out

Anyone planning to get a last minute ticket to this year’s Great American Beer Festival in Denver next month is essentially out of luck.

Three of the four GABF sessions are sold out, and only a few tickets remain for the Thursday, Oct. 9 session. The Friday night and Saturday afternoon sessions (Oct. 10 and 11) sold out at the beginning of September, and now Saturday night is sold out as well.

In what is unquestionably the coolest convention ever created (except for maybe the Kiss conventions in the mid 90s) lucky ticket holders for this year’s GABF will get to sample 1,969 beers from 432 breweries, all from the U.S., the greatest beer nation in the world.

From the endorsement interviews: the chicken dance?
