Show Notes for Thursday April 4, 2019


Dear John,

I'm not sure why I'm asking since I've already kind of made up my mind. Maybe I want the assurance I'm doing the right thing. My daughter in 13. She has been great friends with our neighbor's daughter for many years. They have had many sleepovers and there has never been any issue. Recently my neighbor has remarried and his new wife has a grown son who lives with them now. My daughter was invited for a sleepover on the last day of school and I told her no. She's very upset with me, but I've witnessed how this boy treats his new little sister and I think it's a bad idea for my daughter to be anywhere near him. I'm trying to protect my baby girl, but she is upset with me. Am I overreacting? Should I give in and let her stay there? What do you think?

Police said that a Wisconsin woman was caught with her hand in the cookie jar when St. Patrick’s Day parade attendees reported she was handing out marijuana-laced treats. 57-year-old Cathleen Krause was arrested after a person told police she was handing out cookies with marijuana in them. Police then approached Krause, who was “visibly intoxicated” and reeked of “alcohol and marijuana on her breath.” Krause allegedly pulled out a gallon-sized bag with only cookie crumbs left when officers asked her about the treats. Police also found gummy candy on her. Both sweets tested positive for marijuana. Krause was arrested and charged with delivering THC, possession of THC, and possession of a controlled substance. She appeared in court Monday where she was released on $1,000 bond and ordered to maintain sobriety. (

There’s an Octopus that Can Change Shape to Imitate Other Animals. If you thought changing colors was cool, meet the mimic octopus, which not modifies its own color to serve as camouflage but also changes its shape. For example, hovering above the sea bed with it arms spread wide to mimic a venomous lion fish or burying all but two of its arms below the sand to look like a long sea snake.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
According to court records, unhappy with the way his groceries were being packed, a Pennsylvania man allegedly choked a supermarket cashier whom the assailant accused of being careless with several bags of snack chips.55-year-old Bradley Bower is scheduled for arraignment Wednesday on a criminal complaint charging him with simple assault, a misdemeanor, in connection with the February 2nd incident at a Giant Food Store near his home in New Cumberland. According to police, Bower and his wife were shopping at the supermarket the night before Super Bowl Sunday. When they reached the checkout line, Giant employee Neil Lerch Jr. began bagging their purchases. But Bower was not happy with the way Lerch did his job, and asked the cashier to “not throw his groceries around.” Upon paying for his groceries, Bower asked Lerch if he had a problem with him. Lerch told police that Bower said, “Do you have a problem with me? Because I have a problem with you.” Thinking that Bower was joking with him, Lerch said he replied, “Do you?” Police allege that Bower subsequently wrapped a hand around Lerch’s throat and pushed him against a cash register.
