2day in history
Today is Tuesday, Aug. 31, the 243rd day of 2010. There are 122 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 31, 1980, Poland’s Solidarity labor movement was born with an agreement signed in Gdansk that ended a 17-day-old strike.

Ten years ago:
President Bill Clinton vetoed a bill that would have gradually repealed inheritance taxes, saying it would have benefited the wealthiest Americans while threatening the nation’s financial well-being.

Five years ago: 
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin said there was “a significant number of dead bodies in the water” following Hurricane Katrina; Nagin ordered virtually the entire police force to abandon search-and-rescue efforts and instead stop increasingly hostile thieves.

AP Odd News
The wrong end of a wiffle bat

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania (AP) — Police say an underwear-clad Pennsylvania man was severely beaten with a plastic wiffle bat when he refused to put on clothes.

Bethlehem police said Monday that Donald Fehr suffered a broken jaw, fractured skull and several lost teeth in the Aug. 17 attack.

Police say Fehr was sitting on his porch in his underwear when he was approached by 19-year-old Hector Morales Jr. and two other men. Morales told Fehr his girlfriend was coming over, and said Fehr was “being disrespectful” and told him to put some clothes on.

When Fehr refused, Morales allegedly assaulted him with the bat, then began punching Fehr when the bat broke.

Morales was charged with aggravated assault and related offenses. Police say he’s in Berks County Prison on unrelated charges. It’s not clear whether he has a lawyer.

Mileage jump has couple wondering where car’s been

NEW YORK (AP) — A couple who left their car parked in a long-term lot near Kennedy Airport during a trip to California were trying to figure out what their car has been doing without them.

Mimi and Ulrich Gunthart said their car odometer reading jumped by 724 miles while they were out of town.

Ulrich Gunthart said he was “flabbergasted” when he saw the number. Another surprise: when they returned to the car and started it up, a music CD came on at full volume.
