WOMAN’S HOME DEMOLISHED BY MISTAKE

 How would you like to come home to find your home had just been leveled. All of your belongings, everything you owned, now a pile of rubble waiting for the Front-End Loader. That’s what happened to Annie Wilson of Dallas, Texas and she’s been trying to get repaid for it ever since. Jackson State University bought the lot next to hers for potential expansion. Troy Stovall, Vice President of the institution says somebody moved signs with the address and a notice that it belonged to the school onto Wilson’s lot, so the contractor worked at the wrong site. That sounds awfully fishy to me. The 713-square-foot house had been appraised for just over $10,000. That sounds way low for any house these days. The school offered Wilson $8,000 in May which wasn’t even market value. I think they just wanted her out of there. She says someone from the state finance department offered $20,000 on Thursday. Wilson says she should get at least $30,000, because of all the belongings destroyed. Shouldn’t there be insurance involved here? She says those include antique furniture and handmade quilts. If it was an error like the Univeersity claims, then their insurance should be paying this woman. There’s no doubt she should be getting something here.

COUPLE SKINNY DIPPING IN RESERVOIR CONTAMINATES WATER

Now, I don’t know if this is just alarmism or what. I just don’t see how this equates. Ryan Langsdorf, 28, and Ashley Moyer, 23, were found in one of two sections of the Mount Tabor Reservoir at about 3 a.m. Saturday during a spell of unusually hot weather. They were cited for trespassing. The two were swimming in a section of the reservoir that was not being used. Had that section been in use, water bureau officials say they would have had to dump millions of gallons of water from that pool and possibly shut off the reservoir. This is what I don’t get. Why? It’s only two people swimming and they would shut it off, drain it and waste all that water? It’s going to be treated before it hits the homes anyway. This just seems a little over the top to me. They get more comtamination from rain fallout. Earlier this year, millions of gallons of water were dumped when someone put latex paint, a construction cone and hundreds of flyers into the water. Now that I can understand. These are toxic chemicals. Not two people skinny dipping.

 DRUNK SWEDE ROWS HOME

I’m always impressed how people think they can do things that they normally can’t when they’re drunk. Check this out. A drunken 78-year-old Swede stole a dinghy after a night out in the Danish town of Helsingor and tried to row back to Sweden, Danish police said on Monday. When the man discovered he lacked the necessary funds to pay for the ferry from Helsingor to Helsingborg in Sweden on Saturday, he decided to row the five km (three miles) across the strait of Oresund that separates the two. He must have thought he still had a little of that olde viking blood in him. He quickly grew tired and, trusting fortune and the currents along with possibly a couple of norse gods to see him safely home, took a snooze at the bottom of the boat. That’s where Danish police later found him out at sea, still asleep. The strait is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. Maybe a couple of those gods were watching over him after all. Police said the owner of the dinghy had decided not to press charges. He probably figures the hangover punished him enough.
