Hot Pink House Has To Go

The owners of the Nathaniel Holmes, Jr. House located in Dennisville's historic district have painted the building and neighboring gift shop "forward fuschia."
The house was built 208 years ago, and up until this week was white, much like the other historical buildings that surround it.
Some residents are upset over the color choice, but there may be nothing they can do.
According to the town council, the community doesn't have any rules about house color.

Police say man stole enhancement cream
Nabbing shoplifters can be an unsavory business,
Last week, Denton police arrested a man who they say pocketed a tube of male enhancement cream from a store
Maybe that part's understandable, considering some men might be embarrassed to make such a purchase. But his indiscretions didn't stop there, police say.
A loss-prevention officer who spotted the theft Wednesday followed the man to the restroom, where he walked into a stall and apparently applied the product.
Then the officer watched as the suspect walked to the store's toy section and exposed himself twice in the Barbie Doll aisle, police say.
The officer called police about 9 p.m. when the man returned to the restroom to use the cream again.
Man accused of threatening neighbor with centipedes
A Malaysian man has been accused of trying to hurt his neighbor with a dangerous weapon — centipedes.
Prosecutor Mazri Mohamed said Wednesday that R. Prabakaran has been charged with attempting to cause harm with a dangerous weapon after allegedly unleashing four centipedes and bugs in his neighbor's bed last week following an argument.
Prabakaran, 21, allegedly climbed on to the roof to enter his neighbor's house where he committed the offense, Mazri said.
Prabakaran pleaded not guilty Tuesday in a court in the southern city of Johor Baru and has been released on bail, Mazri said.

Disgruntled worker 'froze customer's bank account in revenge prank'
A bank customer who criticized an "unhelpful" worker at an Indian call center has alleged the clerk played a revenge prank on him by freezing his account and changing his identity to that of a Ugandan divorcee.
George Bates, 23, said he found the operator at Abbey's call center to be "rude and arrogant" and gave him a low rating in a post-call customer satisfaction survey.
However, when the self-employed carpenter later rang the bank he was unable to access his account for "security reasons".
Mr Bates alleged that the operator had "obviously seen that I have given him bad feedback and has decided to change all my details in revenge."
He added: "When I heard my details had been changed to Ugandan I was terrified that my account had been emptied by somebody else and I would never get my money back."
Mr Bates said the episode began when he contacted Abbey's telephone banking service on September 23 to extend his overdraft to cover direct debits.
The operator, who spoke with an Asian accent, extended the overdraft from £1,500 to £1,700. But when Mr Bates later asked to extend the overdraft further, the operator refused as the limit could not be changed twice in one day.

Clean up underneath ride nets bizarre items
The 28-year-old Corkscrew, which cost £1.25m, was Europe's first double-looped rollercoaster.
The leg was just one of many bizarre items found near The Corkscrew, which is to be dismantled after carrying 43.5 million people since it opened in 1980.
Staff clearing the site also found underwear, a diamond wedding ring, 53 non-matching shoes and 604 watches.

The ride, which reaches speeds of up to 44mph (70km/h), opened on 4 April 1980.
'Missing leg'
Riders are turned upside down twice within three seconds - which probably explains the large amount of lost items found below.
The Staffordshire amusement park said it was used to dealing with more than 5,000 items of lost property, such as car keys, money and mobile phones.
