ANSWERS

1) D. A black Lab has been brought to the state by a pest control businessman who swears the dog can sniff out bed bugs. The dog was trained in the same Texas school where canines are taught to work for law enforcement agencies around the nation.

2) A. Johnson wasn't allowed into the CNN Republican primary debate in New Hampshire. He didn't have support from 2 percent of voters nationwide, explained the newspaper that also sponsored the debate. The ex-guv's campaign adviser protested. Earlier this month, Johnson verbally sparred with an actor playing the president instead.

3) D. The Rio Metro board chose to ax weekend trains sometime in August to cope with a budget shortfall. About $1.2 million in federal money allocated yearly to the Rail Runner is about to run out. It's more important to preserve the workday commuter service, the board said, than entertainment and tourism.

4) B. The 16-year-old girl cursed at the officer and retrieved her bag after being ordered to drop it, according to raw footage that appeared on TV news last week. The video then shows the officer using his stun gun on her. He resigned the following day after five years with the department.
