CHICKEN SCATTERED ON ROAD AFTER WRECK
CENTRE, Ala. (AP) — It would seem like a great find: boxes of chicken tenders lying on a public road, free for the taking. Except that the pickings aren’t the kind you’d want to take home. A sheriff’s office in Alabama is warning people against eating chicken tenders that fell out of a truck after an accident. The tenders were spread across state road 35 in Alabama, spilling boxes of chicken tenders in Cherokee County near the Georgia line. Motorists began stopping on the road to pick up the food. Not only did that create a traffic hazard. It’s also considered a health hazard. Officials say after spending hours on the ground, the food isn’t safe to eat. Those who persist in ignoring the warning were in danger of facing charges.
EAGLES FAN ACCUSED OF SWIPING GUITARS
PITTSTON, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in Pennsylvania have arrested a man in connection with a break-in at a music store — and apparently the suspect is not only a fan of guitars, he’s an fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. WNEP-TV reports Dale Sourbeck was arrested and charged last week with burglary. Police say Sourbeck used a hammer to break into the Rock Street Music store in Pittston around 3 a.m. Thursday. He was captured on surveillance taking two guitars. And police say he returned to grab three more guitars. When TV cameras caught Sourbeck being escorted to a cruiser. Asked by a reporter if there was anything he wanted to say, he paused and said, “Go Eagles!” The team got the message — they won their wild-card playoff contest Sunday over the Chicago Bears.
MOOSE - HOSPITAL
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — You can see a lot of things at a hospital. But Stephanie Hupton says the one thing she didn’t expect to see — was a live moose. Hupton was working in billing at Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage the other day — when word got out that a moose had gotten in. She scooted out with her camera — and began recording. The footage she came up with shows the moose browsing around near an entrance before gazing at the camera — and heading out of the door. Hupton, an Iowa native, says she never felt threatened by the massive animal. But she acknowledged that her close encounter of the moose kind was “definitely different than small-town Iowa.”
