TODAY'S MOST...Unbelievable bottle of alcohol for sale in Arizona: Our friends at KSAZ in Arizona tipped us off to this interesting story. There is a bottle of scotch for sale at a Costco in Scottsdale for $17,000. It's McCallen scotch, aged 60 years. There are only 400 bottles of this stuff in the world, only 72 in the U.S., and this bottle is the only one in the state of Arizona. We're still not sure how it ended up at Costco, but one customer said he'd seen the same bottle on sale in New York City for $20,000, so I guess it's a steal. 

TODAY'S MOST...Stunning result of the huge wildfire in Yosemite National Park: Scientists say they've never seen anything like this, but 60 square miles that burned in the Rim fire is completely dead. All trees, vegetation, and wildlife, gone. Scientists describe it as a "moonscape", because there's absolutely nothing living anywhere. It's not unusual for dead areas to sprout up after a fire, but this is the largest dead area in that part of the country in centuries. 

TODAY'S MOST...Interesting way one company is trying to get its employees to be healthy: Kaiser Permanente is a huge hospital and health care company. It's decided to offer employees bonuses of as much as $500 dollars if they get fit. One interesting aspect is the bonuses are not based just on individual employees getting healthy, but on the entire staff working on its health. The amount of money employees can earn goes up when more employees achieve certain goals. The company feels this is a way that it will keep it's healthcare costs down. Do you think more companies should think about having programs like this?
