Chihuahua leads police to suspect in hiding

Chris and Wendy Anderson have a crime fighter in their north Auburn home, and he's no bigger than 10 inches tall and 3 1/2 pounds.
Tank, a Chihuahua-Pomeranian mix, is credited by sheriff's deputies with flushing out a fleeing suspect who crashed a stolen minivan and was hiding under a motor home nearby. When a Placer County sheriff's deputy and his canine unit showed up, Tank led them to the suspect's new hiding spot deeper in the trees. The suspect gave up without a whimper.

The look on that dogs face says I mean business.

Imagine that a chair for your butt!?

A chair that separates your butt cheeks

The makers of this unique looking Ayur Chair claim that it can provide "perfect lumbar support while ergonomically lifting and separating your butt checks for optimum comfort." Since I have never sat in one, I can't really back up this claim. However, I can see how it would be beneficial when you have a serious beefer on deck and you need to do a little "lifting and separating" to ensure that everyone else in the office doesn't hear it. Is that worth the $500 price tag? Probably not, unless you have some serious gastrointestinal issues.

Woman claims she was chased by abominable snowman
Two Lema Drive residents were startled on Sunday morning when a woman knocked on their door and asked for a ride home because the abominable snowman was chasing her. Sally Meurant and Carmen Fraccica called police after the woman, whom they had never seen before and who later was identified as Toni Zillifro, came to their home at 7:17 a.m. Zillifro, who smelled strongly of alcohol according to a police report, told a sheriff's deputy that she had got drunk at a local bar the previous night and that the snowman, which she described as 7-feet tall, had chased her. She said she fought the snowman, even getting in a kick.

Fire crew's Tater Tots start blaze
A fire station crew must be a little embarrassed by the way some of this state's famous potatoes got fried. Boise firefighters returning from a medical call had to turn their hose on the firehouse kitchen after an overheated pan full of Tater Tots melted and set some cabinets ablaze.
The Christmas Eve fire at Station 8 was quickly extinguished, with no injuries. No damage estimate was available.
Investigators were trying to determine why a computerized safety system that automatically turns off appliances when firefighters are called away apparently had not been activated. Assistant Fire Chief Dave Hanneman said the three firefighters on duty might have forgotten to use it.

Furs found after 30 years in storage
Sam Haskins didn't ask for a fur coat for Christmas. But he got six of them.
Haskins, the new owner of a hardware store, made an unexpected discovery early this month when he started poking around the basement: a climate-controlled vault containing six fur coats, about a dozen suits and some dresses and hats, apparently untouched since the late 1970s.
"The fans were spinning and the furs were spotless," said Haskins. "Everything inside was very nice and clean. The fan was set on 65 degrees and that is exactly what the thermometer read. Everyone wants to know who has been paying the electricity bill."
Haskins, 56, bought J&H Hardware in May and the building — a three-story structure on the village square — in September. In surveying the basement, he figured there might be usable space hidden behind a wall that had hinges on it.
With son Jeremy Haskins, 27, he rented an electric hammer and then a jackhammer and eventually bored through 18 inches of brick and mortar, four inches of wallboard and then a cement wall to find the room once used by Royal Furriers, a business that closed in the late 1970s.
Haskins said he had no idea what the coats are worth, but planned to have them appraised.
It was unclear whether anyone could step forward to claim a long-lost coat — or whether anyone who did would be on the hook for 30 years of storage fees.

Drunk father had 9-year-old son drive
Authorities say a 32-year-old man got drunk on Christmas Eve, then put his 9-year-old son in the driver's seat of their pickup to work the gas and brakes while he steered. Jonathan David Olson of Hamlin Township was arraigned on Wednesday in Eaton County District Court on child abuse, drunken driving-third offence and other charges. A judge set bond at $50,000 and scheduled a January 9 preliminary examination. Authorities say an off-duty police officer saw the pickup driving erratically on Monday night. They say a sheriff's deputy stopped the truck in Eaton Rapids Township, and the boy said they had driven about seven miles. With news video.
