“It was duskish. I saw a ball of bright white light with golden-yellowish edges about 20 feet above my head,” recalled Andrew Ulery of his encounter with a glowing orb on Park Street, when he was a freshman in high school. “It was following me for about a full minute, until I reached the bridge that crosses the railroad.” Visitors to Exeter [New Hampshire] have reported observing a pyramid of lights above this section of the railroad tracks.
Ulery, the black-bearded manager of the Loaf and Ladle, who is seldom separated from a sporty cap, said the “ball of lightning” was about the size of a basketball and he remembered “being glad I didn’t scuff my feet – that lightning thing.”
As Ulery reached the bridge, the object “just took off” and he recalled a “surreal feeling” and being mesmerized by it.

Police officers discovered a dead Pole in the back seat of a van on Thursday morning, during a routine check near the town of Pomellen on the Polish border in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
The three other men in the van said that they had been trying to wake their 56-year-old companion for some time, and had not realised he was dead. A native of the small town of Gryfino, the man had apparently been drinking heavily on the journey.

The streets of Anley, Iowa, are not only well salted but they smell good too thanks to the 9 tons of garlic salt donated to the city by Tone’s Spice Company. A city road department spokesman said, “We’ll take salt wherever we can get it.” There are some drawbacks though. One sanding/salt truck driver said his dog jumped up on his lap and started licking his pants and another said he wanted to order a steak and baked potato.
