▪ A Maine man angry at being denied public assistance took revenge by releasing dozens of live bedbugs at Augusta’s City Hall. The unidentified man had been forced to vacate his apartment and had gone to City Hall to request housing aid. But when a staffer told the man he didn’t qualify for help, he slammed a cup filled with bedbugs on the counter “and bam, off they flew, maybe 100 of them,” said City Manager William Bridgeo. The building was evacuated and closed for fumigation.
▪ A water tower emblazoned with the word “SEX” greeted and shocked drivers passing through the Wisconsin town of Sussex last week. Contractors had been painting the town’s full name on the tower, but stopped partway through to let the paint dry.

▪ A Pennsylvania man who heard sniffing noises outside his door opened it, expecting to see his dog, and found a black bear standing there instead. Antiques dealer Ed Crimni thought the animal sounds at the door were from his dog, Chewy, and he reached out to pet him. He found himself touching a black bear. “I punched the bear in the nose,” said Crimni, “and closed the door.” Spooked, the bear ran up a nearby tree and then left the neighborhood. “I think we both scared each other,” said Crimni.
