    DANVILLE, Pa – A couple who took their nearly 5-foot boa constrictor for a swim in a Pennsylvania river say the pet slipped away and they're concerned about its welfare. The Bloomsburg Press Enterprise reported Thursday that Kolby and Zachary Latranyi had been swimming with the snake named Leyla last weekend in the Susquehanna River.

    Examining a photo from the middle-of-the-night deed, you expect to spot beer cans. The gang of 20-somethings had just hoisted Lady Liberty onto her perch atop an old railroad pier in the middle of the Susquehanna River. Yet no beers were cracked until later. Now Stilp is marking the 25th anniversary of the statue, located on a stretch of river just north of Harrisburg. He arranged a commemorative stamp cancellation and a commemorative coin, and he’s conducting a contest for a song about the statue. “Of all the replicas across America, it’s one of the larger ones,” says Stilp, 61,...
