    In more than 20 years of writing for this newspaper, I’ve learned plenty. For instance, I now know that Election Day is a newsroom holiday, and the company will feed you scrumptious snacks, even if you write outdoors stories that have nothing to do with politics. Also, I’ve learned that coffee exists as its own food group …. and that after waiting for six hours for a single callback from a source, that source will finally phone you while you’re in the men’s room. And today, I’ve learned this: Don’t chase bears. Especially with a dull hatchet. Super-duper especially if...

    Six people have died, 87 have been infected, and some 1,800 schools and kindergartens have temporarily shut their doors amid an outbreak of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome in South Korea. It’s likely the most significant outbreak of the disease outside the Middle East, and over the weekend, the World Health Organization released details on new cases of the disease in South Korea. It also issued a surprising piece of advice for individuals seeking to avoid infection: Drink neither raw camel milk nor camel urine. That’s perhaps not as strange as it sounds. While the exact transmission mechanisms remain unclear, it...

Tallywackers says their restaurant is a “bar, restaurant and entertainment destination for everyone. There is eye-candy — for boys and girls — great food and a really good time.” Just as the “Hooters” name is a play on a euphemism for women’s breasts, “Tallywackers” is a not-so-subtle nod to men’s genitals. Owner Rodney Duke told the hosts of the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show last month that “he has pondered for 10 years why there wasn’t a male equivalent of this type of...

    On March 24th the YouTube channel “Model Pranksters” elected to upload the following video to their channel, and it becomes a prank gone horribly wrong. They apparently thought it would be a wise idea to travel to Kentucky, dress up as the murderer from the “Scream” movies, hide in the darkness, pop out with what appears to be a rifle, and point it at innocent people. Watch what happens when he chooses the wrong guy to scare, and then nearly wets himself. I wish I could say I laughed at that video while watching it, but I didn’t. Frankly I...

    A Long Island man accidentally set his rental car ablaze in an effort to kill bed bugs, police say. Authorities say 44-year-old Scott Kemery poured rubbing alcohol on the bed bugs because he thought it would do the trick. Then, he lit a cigarette, setting himself and three cars on fire. "He said he had bedbugs in the car, and someone told him if he saturated them with alcohol, it would kill them," Det. Sgt. Edward Fitzgerald told Newsday. "So he went and bought some alcohol, he poured it all in there and he sat in his car and lit...

  • Car crashes through Corunna pizza storefront, shop reopens hours later

    Selina Bradford, 31, was preparing her weekly order and just hitting stride for her double shift Monday, April 13, when a woman came through the store. The trouble is the woman was driving, and Main Street Pizza at 307 N. Shiawassee St. in Corunna is not a drive-through. The woman crashed through the storefront in her white Chevy Impala around 12:30 p.m. and continued into the store until her car was stopped by the bathroom wall, Bradford said. "The instant it hit, I stepped forward and saw her hit the wall," Bradford said, adding that she was in disbelief when...

    John Kirkpatrick knew that putting a beaver in charge of protecting Washington’s treasured cherry blossoms was an idea that challenged logic. It was a bit like making Bernie Madoff treasury secretary. But Kirkpatrick, a National Park Service ranger, had a vision, and his vision had buckteeth, a smile and a message. Kirkpatrick, 50, called his creation Paddles, and together, he and his cartoon beaver work to keep the more than 3,000 cherry trees around the Tidal Basin and Mall that are exploding into bloom this weekend safe from the more than 1 million visitors expected during the two-week National Cherry...
