KXLY Hoopfest Best Team Name contest starts Monday
06/24/2018 8:15pm

Next weekend, thousands of teams will battle for Hoopfest bragging rights. But, only one team can say they won the kxly4 News prize for Best Team Name.Every year, a small and unofficial committee at KXLY sifts through the 6,000 names of teams entered in Hoopfest. Some are mundane, some are creative, some barely slip past the censors. Then, we bring it to a Facebook vote the week before the event so our viewers can crown the winner for Best Team Name. Last year, Chafing the Dream was the crowd favorite. This year, it's anyone's game.Will it be one of the teams named after an NBA player, like Fast and Curryous or LeBrontourage? Will it be the obscure Shrek reference Not My Gumdrop Buttons? Or will Baskets and Gravy take home the title?No matter what, the winning team name is more about creativity than basketball IQ.Among the names this year, there were six that referenced The Office, 13 that start with Fortnite and many more than start with the word "air." Follow the KXLY 4 News Facebook page the entire week leading up to Hoopfest as viewers narrow down our winner for Best Team Name. We'll announce it live in our exclusive coverage Friday night on KXLY 4 News. ]]>

CDA doctor volunteers, races at Ironman 70.3
06/24/2018 8:31pm

IRONMAN 70.3 brought two thousand athletes from 46 different states to Coeur d'Alene Sunday for the ultimate test of swimming, biking and running.The 70-mile race took a toll on some athletes, who visited the Kootenai Health medical tent and visited with medical director Dr. Kevin Chang, a pulmonary and critical care specialist."We'll make sure the last athlete crosses the finish line and everyone's safe," Chang said.Chang actually shared the water with some of those athletes Sunday. He kicked things off for his relay team with a 1.2 mile swim starting at 6 a.m."I just kept looking out for the next buoy and just taking one at a time," Chang said. "Just taking it one stroke at a time there and eventually you get back to the shore."Also joining Chang for the relay was a coworker, who biked, and his son, who ran the last leg. It's not the first time Chang has raced Ironman with one of his kids."A couple years ago in Calgary I did the half Iron Man with my daughter, which was fun also," Chang said. He said the morning spent with his son and helping others made the race and recovery even more fun."It's been kind of cool to have my children motivate me to continue to stay active and exercise," Chang said. "It's really been the best part of this is to be able to participate with family." ]]>

Woman fights off attacker trying to kidnap her at gunpoint near TJ Meenach
06/24/2018 2:00pm

Around 2:00 a.m. Sunday, a woman was walking home near TJ Meenach Bridge when a man approached and confronted her. According to a release, the woman protested but the man continued to follow her and eventually held her at gunpoint as he tried to get her to a secluded location. She fought back and was able to get away from the attacker and call for help. Spokane police officers arrived and found a male suspect, later identified as 28-year-old Atif Ado, who matched the description the woman gave them. When officers approached Ado, he moved his hand towards one of his pockets several times, ignoring commands from officers to keep his hands visible. Officers eventually were able to safely detain him and found a 'realistic appearing replica firearm' in the area he had been reaching for. After examining the scene, collecting evidence, and further interviewing the victim, officers arrested Ado for 1st degree kidnapping. According to SPD, there is no indication that anyone else was involved. Following the attack, Spokane Police released the following statement to the public: This type of attack can make many feel uneasy; we are grateful the woman was successful in defending herself, and the suspect was apprehended. SPD is committed to protecting the public against violent persons willing to victimize others. A couple tips to maximize safety; use the "buddy system" if possible (walk with a friend or group). If able, avoid secluded areas, especially during the hours of darkness. Trust your instincts; if you feel you're in a dangerous situation summon assistance as soon as practical. ]]>

Deadly blast hits rally attended by Ethiopian leader
06/24/2018 6:11am

At least two people were killed and more than 100 injured in an explosion Saturday at a rally attended by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, officials said.In footage from state TV, bodyguards rush Ahmed unharmed off the stage in Addis Ababa where he had been sitting after the blast.Health Minister Amir Aman tweeted Sunday that 156 people needed medical attention and 44 were hospitalized. Five people were in a critical condition, he said."Thank you all those who volunteered to donate blood for victims of the incidence," Aman tweeted. "Currently there is no shortage of blood. Please keep up the good work. That's what defines being Ethiopian."Six suspects were arrested, according to state broadcaster ETV, which carried a statement from the Federal Police Commission.Nine members of law enforcement, including the deputy police commissioner of Addis Ababa, were arrested for alleged dereliction of duty in connection with the blast, police said.Solomon Ali of the Ethiopian Red Cross Society said it was difficult to move the wounded from the blast site because thousands of people were at the rally.The explosion occurred after Ahmed had finished giving a speech before thousands of supporters in the capital's Meskel Square.It's too early to know if the deadly blast was an assassination attempt on the new Prime Minister, the minister of government communications said.Minister and spokesman Ahmed Shide said an investigation is underway, and any findings will be made public.UN Secretary-General António Guterres expressed his solidarity with Ethiopians."The Secretary-General condemns this act of violence," his spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. "He conveys his condolences to the families of the victims and wishes a speedy recovery to those injured."In April, the 41-year-old Ahmed was sworn in on a platform to unite Ethiopians and improve relations with neighboring Eritrea.Last week, he announced he was allowing access to 264 websites blocked under the previous regime. ]]>
