An unidentified allegedly drunken driver hit Katie Lentz, of Quincy, Mo., head on Aug. 4 while traveling on Route 19 near Center, Mo., pinning the 19-year-old in the front seat of her convertible. With her vital signs failing fast, she asked rescue crews to pray with her.

That's when first responders say a man who looked like a Catholic priest seemed to appear out of nowhere, despite a 2-mile perimeter blocking the scene.

"He began to pray and use the anointing oil," New London Fire Chief Raymond Reed said. "There was a calmness that, to me, seemed to come over the entire scene."

But that's not the only seemingly divine detail. Firefighters say their equipment kept failing until the mystery man showed up.

"The words were to remain calm, that our tools would now work," Reed said. "Instantaneously, at that moment, our neighboring department arrived with fresh extrication tools."

Lentz survived, but the man vanished before crews could thank him.

Residents in Cambria County were left wondering exactly what it was they saw after an unusual sight in one neighborhood: A man was hiding in bushes and running through the streets, dressed in black, like a ninja. In an effort to help battle Johnstown's crime concerns,

Todd Kapcsos, of Johnstown, said he dressed as a ninja, but was charged with two misdemeanors for what he did. "I dressed up in all black, snuck around, went through bushes," Kapcsos said. "I was practicing some ninja moves -- ball, looking like a rock, just hiding in the shadows." Kapcsos said he doesn't deny what neighbors in the Moxham section of the city said that they saw, but he said he doesn't think he did anything wrong.

Johnstown police, however, charged Kapcsos with loitering and prowling at night and disorderly conduct when he was apprehended on Russell Avenue on July 15.


This was in the same neighborhood as the 12 year old kid who robbed the lemonade stand.

A proper ninja wouldn't have gotten caught by the 5-0.

That's my alma mater. You certainly learn how the other half of the world lives going to a school like that.

Glasgow man says Edinburgh ketchup charge ‘racist’

IT’S a fast food choice that defines Edinburgh and Glasgow . . . the colour of the sauce you slap on your chips.

But the ancient grudge that divides two cities has reared its head again after a disgruntled punter was told there was a charge if he wanted tomato sauce – but not Capital favourite salt ‘n’ sauce. Glasgow-born Tony Winters is taking his complaint to trading standards after a Capital chippy tried to charge him 25p for a small sachet of Heinz 
tomato ketchup. He says he is being unfairly treated because he is Glaswegian and that that amounts to “racial discrimination”.

They say a tie is like kissing your sister?

Is there something in sports equal to marrying her?

No, I thought about that crying elephant all lunch, and it still upsets me. I didn't know they could cry. There's tear streaks under it's eyes.
