AP Odd News
Skinny dipping record

LOS GATOS (AP) — More than 100 people with nothing on but sunscreen and smiles crowded into a San Francisco Bay area swimming pool over the weekend in an attempt to set a skinny dipping record.

The 111 naked people in the pool at a Los Gatos nudist resort took part in a series of efforts on Saturday to establish a record tracked by a group calling itself the American Association For Nude Recreation.

Organizers say besides the event in Los Gatos, there were about 100 other record-breaking attempts across the country.

In order to be counted in the competition, all the participants had to be at the same location at exactly noon.

A picture taken of the gathering in Los Gatos will be submitted to determine which group broke the skinny dipping record.

Deer crashes through window of store in Ore. city
ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — A southern Oregon city says the nightlife in its downtown is more like wildlife.

The Ashland Daily Tidings reports that on July 3, a deer crashed through the window of Nimbus, a high-end clothing store downtown.

State wildlife biologist Mark Vargas says the doe likely had been spooked and didn’t see the glass.

A store saleswoman says the deer left no blood and didn’t appear seriously injured.

Police say several residents have been attacked by the animals this year, particularly while they were walking their dogs.
