ANSWERS

1) C. The thief returned the jewelry after three years. Accompanying the goods was an unsigned apology letter. He wrote that many bad things had happened to him, including the death of his wife, after he broke into the house in 2007 and made off with $1,000 and about 12 pieces of jewelry. The note also said he'd like to pay back the money if he can.

2) B. When Christian Bale was in town filming Terminator: Salvation in 2008, he lived on the property Michael Snyder’s body was excavated from earlier this month. Snyder, a mechanic, was missing for eight years. Albuquerque police discovered his remains buried in the yard.

3) D. The city denied a permit to the local chapter of World Naked Bike Ride, a group that puts together events promoting cyclist awareness. City spokesman Chris Ramirez said ordinances prevent nude bike riding.

4) C. The Grand Old Party wants to claim the Congressional spots of Teague and Heinrich, both first-term incumbents. The National Republican Congressional Committee put their challengers at the top of a list of candidates most likely to snag democratic House seats. The NRCC might make big contributions to the campaign of Jon Barela, Heinrich’s opponent.
