Bess was ordered by a judge to stay away from the Main branch of the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Public Library in downtown Cincinnati because of prior thefts.

    Two sisters from the northwestern B.C. community of Kitimat have both had close encounters with moose on the loose. A month ago, Yvonne Studley, 49, was badly injured when she hit a moose with her vehicle, so last Friday her sister decided to visit her in Vancouver General Hospital. But sister Connie Everitt, 51, also hit a moose and ended up in hospital. In the first accident a month ago, Studley was on her way home from a business trip when a moose ran in front of her car. The animal went through the windshield and landed on her, breaking...

    A Pierce County Superior Court judge Thursday sentenced LaTanya Clemmons to five years in prison for helping the suspected getaway driver after the murders of four Lakewood police officers in November. Clemmons' brother, Maurice, committed the worst violence against police in state history when he shot and killed Lakewood police Sgt.

A Seattle police officer shot and killed Clemmons 40 hours later, following a massive manhunt. Judge Stephanie Arend told Clemmons that although her actions "would not have changed the...

    A NORWEGIAN boy, 12, reportedly saved himself and his sister from a moose attack using skills he picked up playing the online role-playing game World of Warcraft. Hans Jørgen Olsen, 12, and his sister encountered a moose during a walk in the forest near their home in the central Norwegian town of Leksvik, said the Norwegian online newspaper Nettavisen. It was then Olsen's WoW instincts reportedly kicked in. Firstly, he taunted the animal to get it away from his sister, the paper said. In WoW, players use taunting to shoo monsters away from weaker team members, the newspaper said. Then,...

    Health Care: A government task force has decided that women need fewer mammograms and later in life. Shouldn't that be between patient and physician? We have seen the future of health care, and it doesn't work. We have warned repeatedly that the net results of health care bills before Congress will be higher demand, fewer doctors, more cost control, all leading to rationing. New recommendations issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) regarding breast cancer and the necessity for early and frequent mammograms do not convince us otherwise. Just six months ago, the panel, which works under the...

Professional cheese sculptor Sarah Kaufmann, 57, first caught the eye of retired U.S. Navy Cmdr.

    BATH – Twilight is coming on at Willie Minot's farm and the cows in the pasture graze contentedly as another day fades. But one cow nibbles on wet grass apart from the rest of the herd, different from all the others, with their spots, round bodies and, well, attitude. She's taller. She's in that gangly, awkward adolescent phase, wanting to be a part of the crowd, but not quite fitting in. Largely, because she is a cow of a different species. She's a moose. "We looked out about three weeks ago and said, 'Hey, there's a moose," said Minot, who...

    Don't get a moose mad -- that's what one family learned after trying to scare a moose away from their home near Prince George, B. C. The family was using an air horn to scare the animal when the moose charged the home's front door. The family took a video of the incident, which shows the moose tramping around in the snow outside the house before running at the door, which the owners slam shut at the last moment. Conservation officers say the moose was probably upset by the family's barking dog and the air horn. No one was hurt...

    Police in central Newfoundland are reminding motorists to remain alert for moose, following a fatal collision on the Trans-Canada Highway. A 69-year-old man was killed Wednesday night when his car struck a moose between Grand Falls-Windsor and Bishop's Falls. The RCMP said two cars actually hit the moose during the incident. A woman in the second vehicle sustained minor injuries. While most moose-vehicle collisions in Newfoundland and Labrador occur between the late spring and mid-fall, RCMP said the incident shows the need to be alert. "These animals weigh quite extensively, almost up to 1,000 pounds," said Const. Richard Wheaton, who...

    A sister of one of three people killed early Friday in Louisville said it "really isn't a shock to any of us" that her brother died in a high-speed crash. "The thing that really makes me feel much better about this is they died doing what they loved to do — they were drinking, they were going fast and they were together," Lorie Flaherty said. "It gives me comfort, it does, to know those three things."
  • 12-yr-old relies on Worl of Warcraft knowledge to fend off real life moose attack

    This is the kind of story that you know can't be made up, it's just too bizarre. And it's in Norwegian (http://www.nettavisen.no/innenriks/article1453635.ece) so I'll just have to take it at face value. Here's the basic rundown: The boy and his sister were taking a shortcut through the woods on the way home from school when they came upon a moose who got aggressive. The kid started shouting to distract the moose while his sister ran away and when faced with a very irate and very large mammal did what he had done many times before while playing his Hunter in...

    I was recently reminded to share this tale with you after a friend told me he was going to give me a sizable chunk of moose meat for my freezer. The late Officer Connor died a number of years ago, but his misadventures afield have lived on. Connor was a retired Chicago police officer who marched to his own tune back in the 1950s and early '60s. He and my father were always fishing and hunting together. Connor had saved enough dollars so he could go moose hunting in Maine. He figured that by staying in the good old U.S.,...

    A WOMAN was locked up and “lost” for 70 years after being wrongly accused of stealing 13p. Jean Gambell, 85, was “certified” indefinitely in 1937 over claims she had taken the cash while cleaning at a doctor’s surgery. The money was found — but Jean still spent 70 years in a maze of care institutions. She was “found” when brothers Alan, 66, and David, 63 — who thought she was dead — read a letter sent by a care home to their mother, who died 25 years ago. David said: “I was about to throw it in the bin when...

    Humans have been blamed for slaughtering woolly mammoths and other large ice-age animals into extinction, but new evidence from Yukon suggests this isn't the case. Moose were to blame, at least in part, says Dale Guthrie, a researcher at the University of Alaska. He has found evidence that the climate in Yukon and Alaska was warming between 13,000 and 10,000 years ago, around the time a wave of human hunters moved into North America from Asia. The North was changing from a grassland to a boreal forest and tundra, he says. Moose also arrived, and were better adapted to digest...

    Has anyone else noticed he has been saying horrible things about Ann Coulter, for example he said she is screwing up the country and so forth. I don't know about y'all but I won't be buying any of his books.
