    Default Emt Saves K-rock

    October 26, 2005 --A middle-aged Bronx paramedic with a receding hairline has been tapped to take over for Howard Stern when the shock jock moves his raunchy morning gabfest from K-Rock to Sirius Satellite Radio.
    David Lee Roth the once-hunky rocker who fronted Van Halen only to swap his mike for a stethoscope to save lives as an emergency medical technician on city ambulances will begin broadcasting in Stern's 6-10 a.m. slot starting Jan. 3, it was announced yesterday.
    What he'll talk about is a mystery, but Roth is expected to focus more on politics a dramatically different approach from Stern's daily offering of strippers, porn stars, lesbians and various wackos.
    Also different will be Roth's salary. He'll earn a reported $4 million a year, compared to Stern's $25 million.
    Stern, who'll do his last live K-Rock show Dec. 16 and move to Sirius next year at a reported salary of $100 million a year, had Roth on his show yesterday and quickly tweaked his future rival.
    "I'm hoping you fail in a way because that will drive more listeners over to satellite where I'm going," Stern said.
    Roth, who like Stern is 51, admitted: "I don't have any writers. I don't have any specific crew. I'm gonna start off solo. Actually, the empire I'm more interested in is the [Rush] Limbaugh empire. I'm looking for . . . the [Bill] O'Reilly approach there.
    "I think probably I have a view on politics that might be unique. I've been to almost 40 countries."
    Asked by Stern if he supported the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Roth replied: "I think I'm a hippie with a pistol."
    In a conference call with reporters, Infinity Broadcasting CEO Joel Hollander fired a nasty blast at Stern's often controversial material, which had Infinity paying millions in FCC indecency fines over the 20 years he spent at K-Rock.
    "One thing you can expect from Infinity Broadcasting moving forward is no 24-hour channels of farting and, you know, people with mental illnesses. You won't get that here," Hollander said.
    Roth's hire is part of an overall makeover of K-Rock, which will dump its rock format to become "Free FM" an all-talk station, which will play some music on weekends.
    Infinity is using several hosts to replace Stern on its 27 radio stations around the country. Aside from New York, Roth will air in Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, West Palm Beach and Dallas.
    Adam Carolla, known for his comedy work on "The Man Show" and "Loveline," will take over in Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Portland and Las Vegas. A virtual unknown named Rover will be carried in Detroit, Cincinnati and Memphis. Stern's longtime rival Don Imus said he expected the replacements to fail and "then they'll have to come to me, won't they?"

    October 27, 2005 --Crime doesn't pay just ask the robber who made off with some cash and then was struck five times by two vehicles as he tried to make his getaway. Cops in Milwaukee say the 29-year-old suspect was first struck by his own getaway driver and four more times by another driver who was attempting to stop him. Then, as the crook tried to fire his gun, he shot himself in the leg.

    I'm surprised they didn't use the child obesity link...Then again, I think that's only a problem here in the states...

    Deer Horns In on Shoppers in Tony Georgetown Stores Yearling's Spree Draws Crowd, Ends Tranquilly

    By Del Quentin Wilber and Nia-Malika Henderson Washington Post Staff Writers
    Thursday, October 27, 2005

    At least the deer had good taste.

    As it ambled through Georgetown late yesterday afternoon, drawing crowds and causing traffic tie-ups, the young buck entered two of the trendiest clothing boutiques, Diesel and Ralph Lauren.

    "It was definitely a stylish deer," quipped Kira Sternburg, the manager of Diesel.

    And popular. Some onlookers said the deer drew larger crowds than actress Nicole Kidman, who was in the area filming a movie earlier in the day.

    The deer's adventure in the Northwest Washington shopping district began at 4 p.m. and ended about 90 minutes later when D.C. animal control officers tranquilized it as it camped inside a fitting room in Ralph Lauren. The officers carried it outside -- to chants of "Free Bambi!" -- and said the animal will be all right.

    Authorities said the yearling apparently wandered into Georgetown from Rock Creek Park. The park's deer population has been growing in recent years, and this is deer-mating season, when males are moving about and frenzied.

    Sternburg and other employees at Diesel were tending to customers when the three-foot-tall deer wandered in from the street and trotted to the back of the store, in the 1200 block of Wisconsin Avenue NW. The deer suddenly began to ram a large mirror. Clerks and customers scattered, until store employee Tim Murakami turned off the store's lights.

    "Once he did that, the deer settled down and walked out of the store," Sternburg said.

    The deer then trotted around the corner -- to Diesel's next-door neighbor, Ralph Lauren.

    Sternburg and others speculated that the deer was drawn by Ralph Lauren's equestrian-themed window -- riding boots, leather saddles and bales of hay.

    "It is very outdoorsy," Sternburg said.

    Ligia Lopez, a sales associate at the Kenneth Cole store, said she was walking along the block when she heard what was happening. She raced into Ralph Lauren and soon saw the antlers.

    "We thought it was part of the display, part of their look, like maybe they were running a promotion," Lopez said.

    Lopez and others were hustled away, joining a growing crowd on the street. Many peeked through the store's windows, and rush-hour traffic slowed as motorists became rubberneckers. Officers called over their police radios for help in controlling traffic and bystanders.

    In Ralph Lauren, where the situation was tense, the deer found its way into a fitting room.

    "I don't have time to talk right now," said a store employee, reached by phone at 5 p.m. "We have a situation. We are addressing what is going on."

    A half-hour later, the drama ended. Animal control workers said they would release the buck in Rock Creek Park.

    Ron Ecton, general manager of Ralph Lauren, said he was glad the deer and customers were safe.

    "That was enough excitement," he said. "It's over. We just want to get back to business."

    Default Check your drivers license.

    Now you can see anyone's Driver's License on the Internet, including your own! I just searched for mine and there it was...picture and all! Privacy, where is our right to it? I definitely removed mine, I suggest you all do the same.....Maybe we should start up a petition or something protesting this. What do you think?Go To the website below and check it out. Just enter your name, City and state to see if yours is on file. After your license comes on the screen, click the box marked "Please Remove." This will remove it from public viewing, but not from law enforcement.

    From Yahoo news.com

    FREDERICA, Del. - The apparent suicide of a woman found hanging from a tree went unreported for hours because passers-by thought the body was a Halloween decoration, authorities said.

    The 42-year-old woman used rope to hang herself across the street from some homes on a moderately busy road late Tuesday or early Wednesday, state police said.

    The body, suspended about 15 feet above the ground, could be easily seen from passing vehicles.

    State police spokesman Cpl. Jeff Oldham and neighbors said people noticed the body at breakfast time Wednesday but dismissed it as a holiday prank. Authorities were called to the scene more than three hours later.

    "They thought it was a Halloween decoration," Fay Glanden, wife of Mayor William Glanden, told The (Wilmington) News Journal.

    October 28, 2005 -- Just in time for Halloween, a pumpkin with legs is freaking out people in Pennsylvania. That's where a deer got a plastic pumpkin stuck on its head and can't seem to get it off in the woodsy community of South Middleton Township. "It sounds very far-fetched," says Elizabeth Laatsch, who snapped a photo of the hooded beast so people would believe her. Authorities are now trying to catch it.

A month after she went missing, her veterinarian got a call from France, where factory workers had discovered her wearing her ID tag in a ship container. Emily's owner figures she slipped into the container while snooping around a local paper warehouse. He now has to pick up the tab to fly his tabby home.

    Monster truck rolls over Mounties' cruiser

    Canadian Press Monday, October 31, 2005

    HOPEWELL, N.S. (CP) -- Nova Scotia RCMP had a personal monster-truck show when a raised pickup truck with large tires led them on a chase before rolling over a cruiser on the weekend.

    Mounties had stopped to investigate the truck in when the driver suddenly took off and refused to pull over.

    Two cruisers chased the truck on some back roads before the truck rolled over one cruiser and landed in a ditch. Jeffrey Holley, 26, faces a number of charges.

    Default Blue-beary Close Call?

    Muffins blamed for luring black bear to breakfast at B.C. deli

    Canadian Press October 31, 2005

    PEMBERTON, B.C. (CP) - Connie Wilson blames the fresh-baked blueberry muffins for luring a black bear to breakfast at Grimm's Deli this week.

    And now, just to be safe, she's keeping the door closed to keep away the unwanted guest, who proved to be a difficult customer to move on. Wilson opened the back door to let out the heat from the oven early Wednesday morning when the bear came calling from the back alley of the restaurant in the middle of Pemberton, a couple of hours north of Vancouver.

    She clapped and waved her arms but the animal refused to leave.

    Three other customers joined the circus, including one man who grabbed a chair to try and poke the bear out the door.

    "He was a medium-sized bear," she said. "He wasn't scared at all, he just kept coming in. . . . He didn't want to leave. I had blueberry muffins in the oven, I think that's what did it. . . It just smells wonderful in here."

    Wilson said she was scared because the bear wasn't afraid at all, but it finally did leave, without getting any muffins, or causing any damage.

    "Some of the guys finally got him to leave," she said. "It scared me pretty good, because that's my first bear encounter."

    November 1, 2005 -- Hurricane Katrina has claimed an unusual victim voodoo. Practitioners say New Orleans' status as the voodoo capital of America has been wiped out so they're calling on the dead to give them a hand. "We have got to call on the ancestors for help and get real serious about it," said Brandi Kelley.

    November 2, 2005 -- If you start hearing a serenade in your apartment, quick, get the glue traps out. It turns out male mice sing to attract female partners, making chirping-like noises that are similar to those of birds, scientists at Washington University say. Chirping? Heck, does that mean the operatic Mighty Mouse isn't real after all?

    Man Kills Buck With Bare Hands in Bedroom Wed Nov 2, 6:21 PM ET



    BENTONVILLE, Ark. - For 40 exhausting minutes, Wayne Goldsberry battled a buck with his bare hands in his daughter's bedroom.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Goldsberry finally subdued the five-point whitetail deer that crashed through a bedroom window at his daughter's home Friday. When it was over, blood splattered the walls and the deer lay dead on the bedroom floor, its neck broken.

    Goldsberry was at his daughter's home when he heard glass breaking. He went back to check on the noise and found the deer.

    "I was standing about like this peeking around the corner when the deer came out of the bedroom," said Goldsberry. The deer ran down the hall and into the master bedroom "jumping back and forth across the bed."

    Goldsberry, about 6-feet-1 and 200 pounds, entered the bedroom to confront the deer and, after a brief struggle, emerged to tell his wife to call police. After returning to the bedroom, the fight continued. Goldsberry finally was able to grip the animal and twist its neck, killing it.

    Goldsberry, sore from the struggle, dragged the dead animal out of the house.

    "He got kicked several times. He was walking bowlegged for a while," Deputy Doug Gay said.

    At this time of year, a buck that sees its reflection in a window often charges, believing it is fighting off a rival, Gay said.

    Goldsberry had the deer butchered.

    "He's in the freezer," the man said before walking to the kitchen and showing off pounds of freshly wrapped venison.

    November 3, 2005 -- Attending a wedding in Michigan can be hazardous to your hands. For the second time in two years, a reception guest in Shiawassee County has lost part of a finger during a fight. Most recently, Philip Michalek, 26, bit off the tip of 23-year-old Ryan Dickey's thumb, which "ended up in the suspect's mouth," said Detective Sgt. Mark Pendergraff. It could not be reattached. In August 2003, a guest at another ceremony bit off part of a man's finger, bit the thumb of the bridegroom and knocked down the bridegroom's mother.

    This one almost sounds like an excerpt from The Holy Grail wedding ceremony

    November 4, 2005 -- A trip to the rest room at Home Depot was anything but restful for one man. Bob Doughtery, 57, says he got stuck to a toilet seat after a prankster smeared it with glue and now he's suing the Boulder, Colo., store, saying employees ignored his cries for help. "They left me there, going through all that stress. They just let me rot," he fumed, adding that workers later told him they thought his cries for help were a prank.

    November 5, 2005 -- A man fleeing a video store with a half-dozen stolen DVDs was bagged by police because of his baggy pants. Cops in Ferndale, Mich., said James Green was fleeing down an alley when his oversized pants fell to his ankles and tripped him. After kicking off his pants and shoes, he jumped a fence into a back yard, where he was collared.
