Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

252-lb Hooker nicknamed "The Demolition Woman"
Numerous neighbors of a 252-pound prostitute in Berlin are asking a judge to put her out of business because of the shaking of her apartment.
Tenants of the building where Ilnes Lorbach, 36, lives and legally entertains her prostitution clients told the Administrative Court in Berlin the sex lovemaking causes their apartments to shake.
One neighbor told the court a pair of valuable Baccarat crystal glasses fell from a shelf and broke as a result of the shaking.
Carolso Hoffmann, who lives next door to Lorbach, compared his living situation to "that film Earthquake." "She's a one-woman demolition job."
Cemeteries are the newest wedding sites
Cemeteries such as the Wisconsin Memorial Park in Brookfield, Wis., have begun hosting weddings as part of a new service trend, industry officials say.
Stewart Enterprises Inc. spokeswoman Denise Westerfield, whose company operates the Brookfield cemetery, said funeral homes make an ideal wedding site given the changing perception of death in society,
"Funerals are becoming much more a celebration of life than a dark event, so why not have your wedding at a funeral home?" Westerfield said.
Hunter cleared in toilet seat shooting
A Swedish court cleared a hunter whose missed shot shattered a toilet 1.06 miles away of an endangering human life charge.
The Boras District Court ruled the hunter, a 37-year-old man from Ulricehamn, used sufficient caution before taking the shot, The Local reported Wednesday.
The court was told the man was hunting geese at Tolken Lake, near the village of Hokerum when he fired a shot at a bird and missed. The bullet traveled more than a mile -- the court heard it may have ricocheted off a stone -- and sped past a couple entertaining a guest outside their cottage.
The couple said they followed the bullet's path inside the home and discovered their toilet seat had been shattered.
Waterloo man arrested after trying to run over officers
A Waterloo man was arrested early Friday after he attempted to hit two police officers with his vehicle during a traffic stop.

Lemuel C. Johnson, 23, 404 Dane St., is charged with two counts of felony assault on a police officer and driving with a suspended license, Waterloo police said.
The two Waterloo police officers pulled Johnson over near the intersection of South Street and Mullan Avenue around 12:30 a.m., according to police records. As they approached his vehicle, Johnson threw the car in reverse and struck the front of a patrol car. Johnson then pulled forward.
The officers again tried to get near the car. Johnson responded by putting the vehicle in reverse and slamming into the patrol car. He then fled. Johnson’s car was found a short distance away from where he was stopped. Johnson was arrested after police found him hiding in a nearby abandoned building.
