Some of the stories that will be talked about today: House Republicans are on track to pass legislation to authorize the construction of the contentious Keystone XL oil pipeline. It's still not immediately clear even within the Obama administration whether rogue hackers or other governments disrupted North Korea's networks last month. Obama administration officials are not providing any details about the proposal to give every American student two years of community college for free... no word on where the money would come to pay for it.
It seems to be a question in constant need of clarification: what makes a service dog a service dog? Whatâ€™s the difference between a service dog and a companion dog (pet)? Do businesses have the right to ask someone with a service dog to leave?
Itâ€™s a slew of uncertainties that can land business owners and public entities in legal hot water for discrimination.
However, itâ€™s not asking questions of the animal owner that is wrong, says longtime dog trainer and competition judge, Jody Hoffman. Itâ€™s knowing what questions to ask.

Colville falls to
Colville dropped a pair of games at last weekâ€™s West Valley Holiday Tournament.
Colville played Okanogan for the second time in a week, falling 65-49 to the Bulldogs. That was a marked improvement from the first meeting between the two teams.
The Indians also fell to Tonasket, 68-58.
The Indians, who have won only once to date in a difficult December, travel to Medical Lake on Tuesday and return home Friday to host Freeman. Both games are scheduled for 5:45 p.m. starts.
Kettle Fallsâ€™ poor second half added up to a Northeast 2B girlâ€™s basketball loss at Ritzville High School to Lind-Ritzville/Sprague last Saturday night.
The Lady Bulldogs (4-6) led the Broncos (7-1) with about one-minute left in the first half before the host team went on a run that continued into the second half. LRS outscored Kettle Falls 36-15 in the second half en route to a 51-36 win.
Jenna Barrett scored 21 points and pulled down eight rebounds for the Broncos. Peyton Curtis added 13 points and Tessa Jantz chipped in with 11.
Now at a local movie theater near you: beer and wine.
A bill approved by the Washington State House of Representatives in 2013 made it legal for movie theaters to sell wine and beer to patrons 21 and over. It also allows small venues that serve food to sell hard alcohol.
The Alpine Theater in Colville filed their application to serve beer and wine with the Washington State Liquor Control Board last September. The Colville business was approved in October 2014 and began selling alcohol about three weeks ago, according to owner Steve Wisner.
