Streaker cites boredom as reason for naked dash
KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) - A man who has been charged with making a naked dash through a Tennessee supermarket told police he was "bored and didn't have anything else to do."

The Kingsport Times-News reports that a man entered an IGA store Friday night, wearing nothing but a face mask, and ran around the aisles.

A police report says officers found the suspect in the bathroom of a nearby Hardee's restaurant. Employees say he entered the fast food outlet wearing nothing but an orange hooded sweat shirt and asked if anyone could lend him clothes. An employee gave him a pair of athletic shorts.

Kingsport police arrested 22-year-old Daniel R. Lee of Church Hill and have charged him with indecent exposure.

Woman posed as an FBI agent
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Authorities say a Virginia woman pretended to be an FBI agent and conned her neighbors into taking jobs as her assistants.

Twenty-nine-year-old Brenna Reilly of Arlington was indicted by a federal grand jury in Alexandria last week on a charge of impersonating an FBI agent.

According to a court affidavit, Reilly told neighbors in her apartment complex that she was the FBI's director of forensics. Two of those neighbors say they agreed to work as Reilly's assistant and put personal information such as their Social Security numbers on phony job applications.

She gave the assistants tasks that included writing condolence letters to family members of agents killed in the line of duty. But authorities say Reilly was never an FBI agent.

Thousands watch as owlets hatch
SAN MARCOS (AP) - A barn owl couple in California has given birth to a family and a fan club.

Two years ago, Carlos and Donna Royal made an owl box, put it on top of a 15-foot pole in their northern San Diego County back yard and hooked up a video camera. Barn owls Molly and McGee moved into the box in January and started a family.

Since debuted, it's had more than 3 million hits.

Dog that nursed squirrels doing OK
OXFORD, N.C. (AP) - After three baby squirrels lost their tree-home to a chain saw, they found a foster mom in a 4-year-old toy poodle named Pixie.

Dog owner Gail Latta said she tried unsuccessfully to feed the squirrels canned milk. Then the North Carolina woman turned to Pixie, who had recently had her own pups. They had been sold, but Pixie could still nurse. Pixie treated the foster squirrels like her own babies.

After two weeks, the squirrels were old enough to be weaned, and they had to go.
