6:10 Boneheads in the news:
A 45-year-old man was charged with two misdemeanors in federal court Tuesday, for allegedly using his paraglider to chase down a barn owl in flight back in 2011.
According to KUTV, Dell Schanze, who, thanks to his time as a former computer store pitchman also goes by "Super Dell," recorded the apparent mid-air harassment of the protected raptor and uploaded it to YouTube. The mid-air incident was also flavored with his victorious boast, "I kicked an owl butt!"
Despite Schanze's denials that he starred in the video, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, via the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Salt Lake City, charged him this week with one count of using an aircraft to harass wildlife and one count of pursuing a migratory bird.
U.S. Attorney's Office spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch with the U.S. Attorney’s Office explained Schanze faces a maximum of up to one year and six months in jail and fines of $105,000 if convicted on all counts.

When your doorbell rings with trick or treaters tomorrow there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be seeing Elsa or Olaf from “Frozen.” Of course that’s no surprise, since the Disney movie is still hugely popular with kids (and adults), but just how many kids will be dressed as one of the film’s characters this year is pretty startling.
Forbes reports that Elsa is by far the most popular costume this year, with the search specialists SLI Systems reporting that 1,192,000 people searched costume retailers for some sort of “Frozen” outfit. That’s right, over a million!
SLI Systems narrowed down the Top 15 costumes of 2014, so be prepared, this is what you’ll be seeing a lot of today.
Frozen – 1,192,000 Zombie – 863,000 Ninja – 863,000 Pirate – 796,000 Clown – 659,000 Witch – 588,000 Vampire – 565,000 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – 536,000 Book of Life – 308,000 Flapper – 277,000 Batman – 251,000 Despicable Me – 233,000 Maleficent – 227,000 Monster High – 206,000 Star Wars – 148,000
Have you ever gorged yourself at a Super Bowl party or Las Vegas buffet and worried that you gained about 10 pounds? Well, rest easy, because you probably didn’t do that much damage to your waistline.
Samantha Cassetty, RD, MS, nutrition director at Luvo, tells Yahoo Health, that you’d have to eat an enormous amount of grub to gain just one pounds in a day. “It’s virtually impossible to gain weight overnight, even if you really blew it on bar food,” says Cassetty. “The reason comes down to calorie math. Though it’s not 100 percent precise, the basic principle stands true: In order to gain weight, you’d have to eat 3,500 more calories than you typically eat and burn off to maintain your figure.”
According to Cassetty, 3,500 calories more than your regular intake, is a lot of food. “To get 3,500 more calories, you could eat your regular diet and then also have three glasses of wine (370 calories), two chicken wings (110 calories), some onion rings (340 calories), a portion of chips and queso (290 calories), one burger with the works (860 calories), and a slice of chocolate cake (795 calories),” she says. “That’s a lot of food—and you haven’t even hit the mark yet!”
In fact, in a study published in the “New England Journal of Medicine” revealed that while most people think they gain six to ten pounds over the six-week holiday period, most people really only gain one. Explains Cassetty, “Fewer than 10 percent of the study participants actually gained more than five pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.” So stop feeling guilty, and enjoy that pounds of stuffing!

-- A Stoneham, Massachusetts grocery store owner did what he had to do when a group od armed robbers came into his store. They demanded he hand over cash and brandished a gun. Owner Saadat Khan didn't have a weapon, so he did the best he could and threw chili powder in his face. The men fled and Khan wrote down the license plate number and police eventually arrested 25-year-old Brett Osgood on assault and battery. Source: MyFoxBoston
-- A 14-year-old Manitoba, Canada, boy is being praised for his honesty after he found -- then donated -- two thousand bucks he found after trying on a donated suit at a church rummage sale.
According to CTV, Tom Campbell tried on the suit jacket from the rack, and quickly found two wallets stuffed with crisp 50 dollar bills -- totaling two grand in all. Campbell decided to give the money back to the organizers of the event, who attempted to contact the suit's former owner.
A blank check provided the name of the suit's owner, who was found to be deceased. An obituary helped thrift sale organizer Norman Brown to reunite the money with its former owner's next of kin. "It's a wonderful story of truth and honesty with a young man and his grandmother," Brown said. "They could have walked out of the door with $2,000 in their pocket."
-- The Seven Mile Beach Kiosk Café in Gerroa, New South Wales, doesn’t just serve its customers good coffee, but also a lesson in politeness. In order to reinforce the importance of being nice, the café’s owners are actually charging people different rates for coffee, depending on how they ask for it.
Just so this doesn’t confuse their customers, they’ve put up a sign outside the café explaining their innovative pricing policy. According to the sign, merely asking for “A coffee” will set you back by $5.00. But saying, “A coffee, please” will bring the price down to $4.50. And if you want to go the whole mile, you could say “Good morning, a coffee please.” Then they’ll only charge you $4.00.
The initiative is only two months old, and things have been going pretty well so far. Owner Kev Chilver and his wife Kylie Pickett said they wanted to bring good manners back, and they got the idea after one of their employees saw a similar sign in another shop. And ever since they put up the sign, they said their customers have been making an effort to ask nicely.
“Common courtesy is less common, and we’re trying to bring it back,” Chilver said. “We are in the service industry but we deserve as much respect as anyone else. Please and thank you go a long way.”
-- TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Another week. And another ace for pro golfer Danielle Kang. She also gets another car. Kang has made her second hole-in-one in eight days. She aced the 158-yard 17th hole with a 7-iron, in the second round of the LPGA Taiwan Championship. She wins an Audi A6 T2.0. Last week in the first round of the Blue Bay LPGA in China, the 22-year-old American had a hole-in-one with an 8-iron on the 155-yard 17th hole. She won a Buick LaCrosse then. So far, Kang has three aces in LPGA Tour play this season to tie the record.
-- THIS is not news from the Wells Journal area. But sometimes the occasional log from the fire service comes along that you feel compelled to share.
Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue reported this morning: "One fire engine from Exeter was mobilised to reports of a male stuck in a public toilet on Blackboy Road.
"Crews used small tools to release the man and his dog uninjured."
The incident comes after a week of strange call outs for Devon firefighters saving people who had become stuck in various situations.
They had to rescue an 84-year-old man off the roof of his bungalow in Paignton, sheep from the ledge of a quarry where "crews used Safety at Height Equipment to gain access to the sheep", a woman up to her knees in mud, a "concerned young lady who had a friend stuck in the bathroom" in Plymouth.and, more closer to home, two parents and a baby from a bedroom in Taunton after the door handle broke.
While Halloween is really a kids’ holiday, there’s no doubt parents love it too, probably because they look forward to stealing a lot of candy out of their children’s goodie bag. In fact, according to the National Confectioners Association, nearly 90 percent of parents say they sneak treats from their kids’ Halloween stash, and grownups actually eat about half of all Halloween candy bars.
But while those goodies sure taste good, you shouldn’t be shocked to find out they are not good for you. And once you hear what they’re probably doing to you, you’re likely to keep your hand out of that goodie bag this year.
The biggest negative effect Halloween candy is having is probably in your mouth. Dentist Barry Kramer, explains to ABC News that the bacteria in your mouth feasts upon all the sugar you’re eating, “creating a highly acidic environment that wears down tooth enamel and leads to cavities.” He suggests that if you must eat candy, do it all at once, and then thoroughly brush your teeth. Drinking chamomile tea can also help, because it washes sugar out of your mouth.
Of course all that candy could spike your blood sugar, especially if you eat it on an empty stomach. Normally it takes about an hour for the body to balance out after a sugar rush, but after Halloween it could take twice as long, which would lead to fatigue and dehydration. Your heart can also be affected, especially if you are over 40 and indulge in black licorice, which contains glycyrrhizin, a chemical that can cause a depletion of potassium. It’s so bad that eating just two ounces over a few weeks can cause irregular heart rhythms.
And then there’s the obvious, all that candy can be detrimental to your waistline. Believe it or not, six fun-sized candy bars is the equivalent of 500 calories, which would take about 50 minutes on an elliptical to work off. And lower calorie candies are just as bad, because they aren’t as satisfying, causing you to want to eat more of them.
