Grenada Enforcing Ban On Off-Beach Bathing Suits

ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada — Bikini- and Speedo-clad tourists beware.
The Caribbean island of Grenada says it recently began enforcing an indecent exposure law banning bathing suits away from the beach, as well as saggy pants that reveal the underwear.
Police commissioner James Clarkson says violators are usually just ordered to cover up. But the law allows for a $270 fine or six months in jail.

No matter how long one is bound to get some odd news sooner or later, if you thinking about swimming in a bathing suit think again, if you happen to be in Grenada, it packs you with a $270 fine or 6 months in the jail.

Did a UFO Really Wreck the Wind Turbine in the UK? : CleanTechnica

As we reported earlier this week, a broken wind turbine in the English county of Lincolnshire has officials completely baffled as to what may have caused one turbine blade to break-off and another to have a large, mysterious bend about half-way down its 20 meter length [not pictured here].

Some witnesses say they saw unusual flickering and cascading lights in the area a few hours before the turbine blades apparently broke at around 4 A.M. And that was all that British tabloid, The Sun, needed to publish Thursday’s front page headline: “UFO hits wind turbine.”

Polar bear opts for meat over zoo intruder – Yahoo! News

BERLIN (Reuters) – A 37-year-old man climbed over a fence and into the enclosure of Berlin’s celebrity polar bear on Monday, but escaped unharmed when zookeepers distracted Knut the bear with a piece of meat, police said.

“The man said that he thought the polar bear was sad and lonely, and that he wanted to keep him company,” said Berlin police spokeswoman Miriam Tauchmann. “He was very lucky that nothing serious happened with such an act of foolishness.” Laughing

Mother of Palin daughter’s boyfriend arrested

In an odd event it seems the mother of the young man who is the father of Palin’s teen age daughter’s baby has been arrested by police on drug charges;

Sherry L. Johnston was arrested Thursday after troopers served a search warrant on a Wasilla home. The 42-year-old Johnston has been charged with six felony drug counts.

Troopers did not identify the drug involved in a brief mention on the agency’s Web site.

Johnston is the mother of 18-year-old Levi Johnston. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the GOP nominee for vice president, announced in September that her 18-year-old daughter, Bristol, was pregnant and Johnston was the father.

Sherry Johnston was released from jail in Palmer on $5,000 bail. She was not scheduled to be immediately arraigned.

Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said no one else had been charged. Other details could not be immediately released Friday because the investigation was ongoing, she said.
