COURTHOUSE POT

EPHRATA, Wash. (AP) -- Wearing a red coat will get you noticed. So will selling weed in front of the courthouse. And authorities say Andrew Allen Kramer was doing both. Deputies charge the 22-year-old Kramer was asking people in front of the Grant County courthouse if they wanted to buy some weed. According to deputies, they could also smell the pot. Kramer was searched and authorities say he had 20 grams of packaged marijuana in his pockets. He was busted and cited for possession.

TEBOW JERSEY

BOULDER NOOKS

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- The Boulder, Co., Public Library is going high-tech. Starting today, library patrons will be able to check out e-readers loaded with best-sellers. The NOOK e-readers will be available at the main library and two branches. The e-books can be borrowed for three weeks and no renewals are allowed. But the free loans could get pretty expensive for those who forget to return the e-readers on time. Overdue fines will run five bucks a day.

MASERATI SUV

DETROIT (AP) -- Ready for a Maserati SUV? The concept vehicle is on display at the Detroit auto show and company officials say it will go into production soon. It will be built in the U.S., but will pack Italian power and style. The engine will be made by Ferrari. The concept is called the Kubang, but company officials say the Maserati SUV will get a new name before it goes into showrooms. No word yet on price, but you probably can't afford it.
