Monday's five most fascinating stories printed on wood pulp:
One apartment dweller learned the hard way. A charcoal grill on the wooden balcony of an apartment building caused a fire that damaged 80 units in St. Louis Park. Commenters who say they live in the building claim the apartment owners repeatedly sent out notices to residences warning them that grills on the balconies were against the law.
Daniel Hauser, the 13-year-old who is under forced chemotherapy treatment from a judge, is responding to treatment for his Hodgkins lymphoma. A family friend says X-rays show his tumor shrunk significantly since treatment started.
Cat ladies (and gentleman) rejoice! Now is the perfect time to fill your homes with fur and dander as the Animal Humane Society basically throws cats into your arms. They are so overrun by cats that they are offering two for the price of one. What a deal! Twice as much cat poop and urine stench for such a low, low price.
Gotta love the alcoholics who are so pathetic they are driving drunk in the daytime. Or they wake up for work and still can't see straight but somehow make it to work.

They are also tough to spot because they can blend in with regular bad drivers.
Nevada gambling revenues are down 14 percent, or more than $1 billion in this fiscal year compared to the previous, but local casinos are rolling in dough.
