ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia man told police he fears a dog ate his false teeth after a fight with his roommate.
Police say the 49-year-old Athens man told them that his roommate threw the teeth out the door in a fit of rage.
The Athens Banner-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/NJYuJ5) that police were called to the man's home on Norwood Circle around 5:40 p.m. Tuesday. The man told officers that his 28-year-old roommate grabbed his false teeth off a table and threw them outside.
Police say the teeth are valued at $300.
Road crew paints yellow
line over dead raccoon
JOHNSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — The "squirrelly" configuration of a western Pennsylvania road helped cause a state road crew to paint a double-yellow line over a dead raccoon.
Motorcyclist Sean McAfee snapped a photo of the mistake before it could be cleaned up and submitted it to the Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown.
He says he almost crashed, he was laughing so hard.
PennDOT spokesman John Ambrosini says paint crews usually have a foreman on the job who clears away any dead animals before the paint-spraying truck equipment passes by. This crew didn't have a foreman and the equipment was too big to turn around in traffic, remove the animal and repair the paint. He says the "the squirrelly geometry" of the narrow road didn't help.
But the crew did try to stop the paint gun.
Pittsburgh-area man to
put ashes in bowling ball
TURTLE CREEK, Pa. (AP) — A Pittsburgh-area bowling fanatic has gotten a Utah company to fashion a bowling ball urn for his ashes.
Forty-eight-year-old Tony Guarino tells KDKA-TV that his wife Stacy called Storm Products Inc. of Brigham City, Utah, when he began wondering if the bowling ball company could make such a container.
Company official Mike Stewart says Storm was "honored" by the request and has since delivered the ball.
Guarino, of Wilkins Township, is an avid bowler whose only perfect, 300 game was bowled using a Storm ball. But he can no longer bowl because his terminal prostate cancer has spread to his lower back and pelvis.
Stacy Guarino says the ball urn won't be used for bowling — it will go into her husband's bowling bag along with a ball his father used.
