Paint trail leads police to vandalism suspect

Palm Harbor, Florida -- Investigators say a trail of paint helped lead them to the man they believe vandalized dozens of cars in Palm Harbor.

Detectives say the investigation began shortly after 4:30 a.m. Monday when deputies responded to a car fire in the Deer Run subdivision. Once on scene, deputies discovered several vehicles throughout the subdivision with their tires slashed. Several cars had paint poured all over them.

"I'm not very happy about it.  I already missed half a day of work trying to get everything together," said Bill Rozo, who had his tires slashed.

Police: Man's ear bitten off, swallowed in fight

St. Petersburg, Florida - Not even Mike Tyson went so far.

St. Petersburg Police say a fight between two men culminated with one biting - and then swallowing - the other's ear.

Investigators say a fight broke out in the street between Davis Randolph and his ex-girlfriend Sarah Zimmerman in the early morning hours of Saturday on Central Avenue.  25-year-old Terrance Johnson, a friend of Zimmerman's, tried to intervene and got into an altercation with Randolph, 38.

Randolph allegedly got Johnson on the ground, where he bit off and swallowed Johnson's ear.  Johnson ran away and Randolph then allegedly threw a beer bottle through a nearby building's window.

Police arrived on scene and arrested Randolph. When asked what he did with Johnson's ear, he reportedly told police it was swallowed "in the heat of battle."

Randolph faces numerous charges, including aggravated battery and throwing a deadly missile into/at/within a building.

Twin friars die on same day at age 92

OLEAN, N.Y. (AP) -- Twins Julian and Adrian Riester were born seconds apart 92 years ago. They died hours apart in Florida this week.

The Buffalo-born twins were also brothers in the Roman Catholic Order of Friars Minor. They spent 35 years working together on tasks including carpentry and gardening at St. Bonaventure University.

They died Wednesday at St. Anthony Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla. They'd moved to Florida from western New York in 2008.

St. Bonaventure University says the brothers were Franciscan friars for 65 years. Spokesman Tom Missel says their deaths on the same day is an almost poetic ending to their lives.

A funeral is scheduled for Monday in St. Petersburg.


World did not end on Saturday, May 21, 2011

World did not end on Saturday, May 21, 2011

For those that may not know, Saturday, May 21, 2011 has come and gone and it appears the world did not end.

A Judgment Day sign that had been planted at the corner of Tyrone Boulevard and 66th St. in St. Petersburg was found abandoned this morning.  

As the photo shows the New York Times, St. Petersburg Times and Tampa Tribune were published Sunday, May 22, 201, and there were no front page reports of apocalypse, the rapture, judgment days or other such headlines.

Apparently, it is business as usual.
