  • Sad...but true.

    PHOENIX, Arizona - A 3-year-old girl survived on little
    more than crackers - apparently up to five days - while huddled
    near her dead mother inside a wrecked car amid freezing
    temperatures in eastern Arizona, authorities said.
    In what law enforcement officials called a miracle, Angel
    Emery was reported to be in good condition at Maricopa Medical
    Center in Phoenix after she was found by an alert motorist who
    spotted the car off the roadway near Globe, Arizona.
    She was being treated for dehydration and frostbite.
    "This is truly a miracle when you think of what she went
    through," Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt.
    Frank Valenzuela said. "She truly is lucky to be alive."

      • January 29, 2004 -- Cops staking out a brothel got the shock of their lives when their own police chief emerged. James Martin Leason, chief of the Runnemede, Pa., police, was busted after allegedly enjoying a romp with two hookers. "Even my grandma was talking about it. She thinks it's disgusting. I think it's disgusting, too," lifelong resident Dawn Coulter told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

            Guys Who Throw Super Bowl Parties Make Better Valentines

            According to a survey by Porter Novelli public relations, men who are hosting Super Bowl parties are more likely than the guests to be single and employed.
            But, even better for gals who fear being a football widow: The research suggests that single guys who throw parties on Super Bowl Sunday are not the complete sports nuts you would think.
            In fact, 53 percent call themselves "romantics," 49 percent like going on picnics and 45 percent enjoy "shopping for fun."

            hmmm, I'm gonna go find out about some super bowl parties.

Gibson found the crystal ball in a hole that had been burned into a homeowner's fire-ravaged couch. While he was holding the glass ball, sunlight hit it and burned two holes in his pants legs.

                Tapped out for a garage fire, w/ attached dwelling. Here a man had moved a burner barrell out of the rain, and put it under a canopy roof on his garage. Fire spread to roof, burned garage, and the front porch and balcony off his house.

                • February 1, 2004 -- A Florida teen is being hailed as a hero - despite being teased by classmates for being a weakling.
                  Justin Gregorich, 14, of Clearwater, helped save the life of an elderly man who had driven his car into a pond, just minutes after being razzed during a school weightlifting session. Gregorich, who couldn't lift as much as the other boys, was one of three people who dived in and pulled Raymond Kane from his sinking car.

                  • This fire truck brought to you by ...
                    STOCKERTOWN, Pa. — They may not be able to change their tires in less than 20 seconds, but Stockertown's fire department is looking for something decidedly race car-like: sponsorship. The tiny borough of 650 residents bought a fire truck but hasn't been able to scrape enough money to pay for it. So the fire chief and the City Council president dreamed up the idea of selling advertising space on the fire truck. So far, no one has signed on.

                          • February 6, 2004 -- Meanwhile, down in Georgia, a 17-year-old coed is in trouble for working for extra credit after class — at Hooters. Now the principal has asked Laura Williams to quit. The teen had quietly worked as a scantily clad waitress at the Springfield eatery for a month before being found out. Her dad, Larry, says it's a tempest in a teapot. "I went to Hooters for an hour, and six families came in for supper during that time," he said.

                            • February 7, 2004 -- An Oregon scientist says he's bringing to life a version of the "tomacco" - Homer Simpson's infamous tomato-tobacco hybrid. Rob Baur, 53, a Simpsons fan from Lake Oswego, Ore., says he's developed a real-life version of the fictional plant first seen on the cartoon series in November 1999. In the original segment, Simpson's nicotine-rich "tomaccos" turn the residents of Springfield into addicts, and Homer stands to become a multimillionaire. Baur transplanted a tobacco plant alongside a tomato plant and gradually weaned the tomato plant from its roots, then coaxed it to latch onto the tobacco plant's roots.
