A $2 million investment into a downtown improvement project has yielded an unintentionally distracting image, some residents say. Downtown Winters has new benches and new brick sidewalks, but that's not what people seem to be noticing on the corner of Railroad and Main. Many residents can't agree on what the newly erected, three-foot-high pedestrian barriers look like. "They look like fire hydrants that have been painted," said one man. A woman named Katie suggested the thirteen barriers looked like chess pieces. Debra LoGuercio, a columnist for the Winters Express, saw something completely different. "By God, they're penises," Debra said. "And it's a nice sturdy one at that." "I've heard people leaning out the window, saying, 'Love the penises!" she laughed, "which you don't hear very often." City officials weren't terribly amused when we brought the subject up to them. The city manager wouldn't go on camera to talk about it, saying it's juvenile. Many residents agree with him -- John Pickerel owns two restaurants on the corner, and he's all for the streetscape improvements. Video .

Beaumont, Texas police responding to a store's burglar alarm found a less-than-hardened criminal inside: He was 4, and playing with the toys. Detective Randy Stevens says the child apparently unlocked a door at his nearby home, got out, then crossed a street to reach the discount store. Store surveillance video shows the unidentified boy trying one of the front doors to a Family Dollar store about 3 a.m. Monday, only to find it locked. But the second door was unlocked and the child went inside. That triggered the silent alarm. "When the officers got there, he was showing them his toys," said Officer Crystal Holmes.Child Protective Services says the boy will be allowed to stay with extended relatives while they review the incident.

It’s called FUNNY & MORE. Feel free to check it out but remember it's an "All Family" blog so if you post a comment NO SWEARING
