  • Inmates running the asylum?

    Landlocked prisoners taught deep-water diving
    CHINO, California (Reuters) - A landlocked California men's
    prison aims to keep inmates from returning to jail by putting
    them in deep water -- training them for undersea construction
    and dam repair.
    The California Institution for Men in Chino sits on a
    stretch of former farmland some 40 miles east of Los Angeles
    and just about as far away from the Pacific Ocean.
    But it houses a prison-based marine technology training
    program where inmates serving sentences of 14 months to 4 years
    learn skills authorities hope will help them find jobs when
    they return to society.
    At a training open to reporters on Friday more than a dozen
    inmate divers demonstrated their techniques in two 22-foot
    (7-meter), 30,000-gallon (113,560-liter) dive tanks. One diver
    donned a 135-pound (60-kg) suit for heavy underwater
    construction, and sunk to the bottom as one of the other
    inmates monitored his equipment up above.
    No more than 12 percent of the more than 1,600 inmates who
    have participated in the program have returned to prison -- far
    below the average recidivism rate of 50 percent in California
    prisons, officials said.

    • Designer coffins next!

      Coffin painter creates art for the afterlife
      WERTACH, Germany (Reuters) - Coping with death is easier
      for the bereaved when you celebrate the beauty of life in a
      person's final resting place, according to a German painter who
      decorates coffins with flowers and other symbols of nature.
      Alfred Opiolka, from Wertach in southern Germany, recently
      began adorning burial caskets with bright images of roses,
      marigolds and butterflies when he decided traditional coffins
      failed to fulfil all the emotional needs of parts of society.
      "I see the painting almost as a kind of service to the
      community, even though I don't want to talk about it terms
      which sound too elevated," he said. "It makes me very happy
      that I can really move people by doing this work for them."
      He hit upon the idea after being hired to paint a funeral
      home, a job which he said altered his perspective on death.
      "I think the commission changed my life. I've thought about
      life and death differently since and have a new perspective,"
      he said, noting that one of his greatest wishes was to be able
      to paint a church with the same natural motifs as his coffins.

        Bad Timing For A Bad Check

        POSTED: 12:36 pm EST December 8, 2006
        UPDATED: 12:54 pm EST December 8, 2006

        CHESTERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- You might think the dozens of police officers would have been deterrent enough.

        But officers in Chesterfield Township, Mich., report that didn't stop a man from trying to pass a phony check at a Wal-Mart.

        The store was hosting it's annual "Shop with a Cop" charity event. There were 40 marked squad cars in the parking lot and 80 officers in the store.

        But authorities said despite all the law, Calvin Fluckes still tried to buy $848 worth of items with a poor photocopy of a check. Police Lt. David Marker told the Detroit Free Press the man was immediately apprehended.

        "He has to be an idiot," Marker told the Free Press. "I can't even imagine what he was thinking."

        Silly String Finds Serious Purpose In Iraq

        POSTED: 5:15 pm EST December 6, 2006
        UPDATED: 5:43 pm EST December 6, 2006

        STRATFORD, N.J. -- In an age of multimillion-dollar high-tech weapons systems, sometimes it's the simplest ideas that can save lives. Which is why a New Jersey mother is organizing a drive to send cans of Silly String to Iraq.

        American troops use the stuff to detect trip wires around bombs, as Marcelle Shriver learned from her son, a soldier in Iraq.

        Before entering a building, troops squirt the plastic goo, which can shoot strands about 10 to 12 feet, across the room. If it falls to the ground, no trip wires. If it hangs in the air, they know they have a problem. The wires are otherwise nearly invisible.

        Now, 1,000 cans of the neon-colored plastic goop are packed into Shriver's one-car garage in this town outside Philadelphia, ready to be shipped to the Middle East thanks to two churches and a pilot who heard about the drive.

        "If I turn on the TV and see a soldier with a can of this on his vest, that would make this all worth it," said Shriver, 57, an office manager.

        The maker of the Silly String brand, Just for Kicks Inc. of Watertown, N.Y., has contacted the Shrivers about donating some. Other manufacturers make the stuff, too, and call their products "party string" or "crazy string."

        "Everyone in the entire corporation is very pleased that we can be involved in something like this," said Rob Oram, Just for Kicks product marketing manager. He called the troops' use of Silly String innovative.

        The military is reluctant to talk about the use of Silly String, saying that discussing specific tactics will tip off insurgents.

        But Lt. Col. Christopher Garver, a U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad, said Army soldiers and Marines are not forbidden to come up with new ways to do their jobs, especially in Iraq's ever-evolving battlefield. And he said commanders are given money to buy nonstandard supplies as needed.

        In other cases of battlefield improvisation in Iraq, U.S. soldiers have bolted scrap metal to Humvees in what has come to be known as "Hillybilly Armor." Medics use tampons to plug bullet holes in the wounded until they can be patched up.

        Also, soldiers put condoms and rubber bands around their rifle muzzles to keep out sand. And troops have welded old bulletproof windshields to the tops of Humvees to give gunners extra protection. They have dubbed it "Pope's glass" -- a reference to the barriers that protect the pontiff.

        In an October call to his mother, Army Spc. Todd Shriver explained how his unit in the insurgent hotbed of Ramadi learned from Marines to use Silly String on patrol to detect boobytraps.

        After sending some cans to her 28-year-old son, Shriver enlisted the help of two priests and posted notices in her church and its newsletter. From there, the effort took off, with money and Silly String flowing in. Parishioners have been dropping cans into donation baskets.

        "There's so much that they can't do, and they're frustrated, but this is something they can do," said the Rev. Joseph Capella of St. Luke's Church in Stratford.

        The Shrivers said they would not mind seeing the string as standard-issue equipment, but they don't blame the military for not supplying it.

        "I don't think that they can think of everything," said Ronald Shriver, 59, a retired salesman. "They're taught to improvise, and this is something that they've thought of."

        Marcelle Shriver said that since the string comes in an aerosol can, it is considered a hazardous material, meaning the Postal Service will not ship it by air. But a private pilot who heard about her campaign has agreed to fly the cans to Kuwait -- most likely in January -- where they will then be taken to Iraq.

        Shriver said she will continue her campaign as long as her son is overseas and she has Silly String to send.

        "I know that he's going come through this. I hope they all do," she said.

          'Christmas Nut' Decorates 52 Trees In S.C. Home

          POSTED: 1:51 pm EST December 11, 2006

          RICHBURG, S.C. -- Melody Howell doesn't just have a Christmas tree; she has a whole Christmas forest in her Richburg-area home.

          This year, she has 52 decorated trees -- one in every room of her house, including one in the laundry room and another in a bathtub.

          Most folks think about their holiday decorations after Thanksgiving, but Howell never stops. She told the Rock Hill Herald she starts decking her halls Oct. 1 to be ready by mid-December.

          Husband Gary Howell said his wife is a Christmas nut, but he added that their house looks beautiful when she's all done.

          Man's Christmas Lights Spell 'Bah-Hum-Bug'. Mich. Man Says Message Is Just For Fun

          POSTED: 1:39 pm EST December 11, 2006

          BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. -- Jason Lee said he has nothing against Christmas, even though his decorations make him look like a bit of a Scrooge.

          Lee spelled out "Bah-hum-bug" in Christmas lights on his front lawn as part of his holiday display.

          The sour sentiment was made famous by Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."

          But Lee, a Byron Township sheet metal worker, said he's just having a little fun. He said you can't have too many lights.

          One local official told The Grand Rapids Press he's not sure he gets the "Bah-hum-bug" message. But the official added there are worse things you can spell out in lights.

          • December 18, 2006 -- In Painesville, Ohio a man who shot his Great Dane in the head may have his jail sentence reduced if he dresses up as a dog. Municipal Judge Michael Cicconetti offered Thursday to cut Robert M. Clark's sentence to 10 days in jail if he wears a Safety Pup costume and visits the city's five elementary schools. The mascot educates children about issues ranging from traffic safety to drug abuse. Clark, 38, pleaded no contest to an animal cruelty charge and was sentenced to 180 days in jail for shooting his dog. Cicconetti suspended all but 30 days of Clark's sentence if he pays the Lake County Human Society for the dog's veterinarian bills. The judge then offered to cut an additional 20 days if Clark dresses up as Safety Pup. Clark was arrested July 3 after neighbors reported hearing the dog's cries and police found the injured animal. The humane society took the dog to an emergency veterinary clinic, but he suffered brain damage and had to be euthanized, the group said.Clark is appealing the sentence, court officials said.

                • December 20, 2006 -- Christmas wreaths, yes; Christmas reefers, no. A woman in Jay, Okla., was busted for trying to deliver marijuana to her jailed boyfriend - in a Christmas card. And in the spirit of the holiday season, she apparently forgot that the reason he's in the slammer in the first place is that he repeatedly rammed her car.

                  While we're on the subject of prison and Christmas . . .

                  Most people are coming home for the holidays, but 23 in Ohio will be leaving for four days in jail - as part of plea-bargaining deals worked out by a judge in Columbus. He sentenced the minor offenders to probation after they agreed to spend Dec. 22 through Dec. 26 behind bars. "I wanted to send a message to those who were borderline . . . It's a reminder of where they could be going, if nothing else," the judge explained.

                      Woman Poses As Lawyer To Have Sex With Inmate
                      Police: Woman Forged Attorney's Pass

                      POSTED: 1:26 pm EST December 21, 2006
                      UPDATED: 1:29 pm EST December 21, 2006

                      BALTIMORE -- A 29-year-old woman allegedly forged documents and assumed the identity of an Annapolis attorney, apparently for the sole purpose of having sex with an inmate at the Baltimore City jail.

                      "It was an elaborate scheme," said Maj. Priscilla Doggett, a spokeswoman for the prison system. "I'm not aware of something like this ever occurring before."

                      Police charged Tiffany Gwen Weaver, of Reisterstown with seven counts stemming from the alleged incident, including forgery, fraud, and false use of government identification. She faces up to 10 years in prison. On Nov. 13, police allege in charging documents filed in Baltimore District Court, a woman appeared at the Maryland Reception, Diagnostic and Classification Center, claiming to be an attorney for inmate Jason Moody. She had a Maryland State Bar Association Security Identification Pass with photo, identifying her as Amanda Sprehn of the Annapolis law firm Hyatt, Peters & Weber. She also gave jail officials a business card with Sprehn's name.

                      Once alone with Moody, the court documents allege, the two began engaging in sexual intercourse. Corrections officials assigned to monitor such visits for safety and security observed their behavior and cut the visit short.

                      Annapolis attorney Amanda Sprehn, the real Amanda Sprehn, told The Baltimore Examiner she was on leave when her firm received a letter banning her from the jail.

                      "I was out on maternity leave," she said. "They informed me they received a letter saying I had been caught having sex with an inmate -- which was a real laugh."

                      "I haven't a clue how she got onto my identity," Sprehn said, adding that she has never represented Weaver. "I certainly feel like a victim. My reputation is at stake. There were already rumors circulating about me in Annapolis. My colleagues had to squash the rumors."

                      Prison investigators met with Sprehn's firm, and realized the business card and security pass were fakes. Further investigation led them to Weaver, authorities said.

                      Stolen Baby Jesus Returns Year Later -- With Pictures

                      POSTED: 3:53 pm EST December 19, 2006

                      BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A statue of the baby Jesus is back where it's supposed to be this Christmas: in John and Joan Leising's yard in Buffalo.

                      The statue was taken from the Leising's lighted manger last Christmas, and a note said it would be returned in three days.

                      It was returned eight months later, with a photo album.

                      Someone had posed the statue in front of Thruway signs in Binghamton, Rochester, Albany and Poughkeepsie. Other photos showed it on a bicycle, on a horse, wearing a seat belt in a car, in a chair next to a campfire and in someone's kitchen.

                      A note said the prank wasn't meant to be "blasphemous or disrespectful."

                      • December 23, 2006 -- Hundreds of people in central China who planned to bare it all to protest the use of "excessive packaging" on holiday gifts will have to get naked on their own time. Police in the Henan province capital of Zhengzhou nixed a campaign by the Jixiang Ruyi Tobacco and Alcohol Company to pay 284 "auspicious men and women" with "healthy bodies and regular features" $1,280 to streak in a Christmas Eve "nude run."

                        • December 24, 2006 -- Santa had better think twice before downing his cookies and milk in Oregon. Workers sampling holiday cookies at a wood plant in Stayton complained of feeling lightheaded and dizzy, and police believe the secret ingredient may have been marijuana. Police said drugged cookies left in a break room at the Weyerhaeuser Co. site were probably responsible.

                          • December 24, 2006 --Dogs, bats and rats will grace dinner tables across Asia this Christmas, where the holiday is feted with lots of cheer and very little turkey. Christmas Day is seen as a foreign festival in many countries in Asia, but that doesn't stop millions of people from cooking up banquets of local food unheard of in the West, including delicacies such as pork soaked in blood, garden rats cooked with chilies and garlic, and bats cooked in coconut milk.

                            • December 24, 2006 -- A satirical new Web site pokes fun at Hazleton, Pa., Mayor Lou Barletta by claiming he has banned Santa Claus, "the nation's most prominent undocumented worker," from the city. The Web site says Barletta has launched a campaign against the jolly old elf, who is "not an American, nor is he legally recognized for residency or occupational purposes in this country." Barletta attracted national attention when he pushed through a tough, first-of-its-kind law targeting illegal immigrants.

                                First case of its kind, British hospital official says

                                Updated: 9:21 a.m. PT Dec 22, 2006

                                LONDON - A woman with two wombs has given birth to triplets, in what is believed to the first case of its kind, a hospital official said Friday.

                                Hannah Kersey, 23, gave birth to three girls in September, said Richard Dottle, a spokesman for Southmead Hospital in Bristol where the babies were born. The children spent nine weeks in the hospital.

                                The girls — identical twins delivered from one womb and a single baby from the other — were delivered by Caesarean section seven weeks early, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported.
