RAVENNA, Mich. (AP) - He had belonged to the same team at a bowling alley for 45 years, and he had just rolled a 300 for his first perfect game.
Then Don Doane collapsed on the floor while high-fiving his Nutt Farm teammates. The 62-year-old bowler from Ravenna was taken to a hospital but couldn't be saved. A medical examiner said a heart attack was the cause of death.
Jim Nutt spoke with Grand Rapids TV stations WOOD and WZZM about his friend and teammate, who collapsed Oct. 16 at Ravenna Bowl. Nutt says Doane had many friends at the bowling alley and it's strange not seeing him on league nights.
Car Reversing Monitor Starts Showing Porn
Ontario: A year after installing a wireless backing camera for safety reasons 52-year-old pizzeria owner and delivery driver Dikran Ohanyan was shocked when the dashboard monitor started showing porn while making a delivery.
Several days later he had occasion to travel down the same street and again the rear display gave way to porn before fading as he left the area. Ohanyan's twin bows were in the back but they didn't notice.
According to experts the most likely explanation for the appearance of the explicit footage is that someone in the street has connected a satellite dish to a transmitter which shares a frequency with the reversing monitor.

Home Depot Scam
A"heads up" for those men who may be regular Home Depot customers.
Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.
Here's how the scam works:
Two seriously good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look.
When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say "No" and instead ask you for a ride to another Home Depot. You agree and they get in the backseat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet. I had my wallet stolen November 4th, 9th,10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, & 24th 29th. Also December 1st, 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th, 30th, three times last Saturday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.
So tell your friends to be careful.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — A Malaysian man has been accused of trying to hurt his neighbor with a dangerous weapon - centipedes. Prosecutor Mazri Mohamed said Wednesday that R. Prabakaran has been charged with attempting to cause harm with a dangerous weapon after allegedly unleashing four centipedes and bugs in his neighbor's bed last week following an argument.
Prabakaran, 21, allegedly climbed on to the roof to enter his neighbor's house where he committed the offense, Mazri said.
Prabakaran pleaded not guilty Tuesday in a court in the southern city of Johor Baru and has been released on bail, Mazri said.
It was not clear what species the centipedes were. Some species are poisonous.
If found guilty, Prabakaran faces up to three years prison and a caning.
Ky. man, 82, accused of trading drugs for sex
BEREA, Ky. — Police investigating an elderly man's complaints about theft at his home discovered the man allegedly traded prescription drugs for sexual favors. Police charged the 82-year-old man with trafficking in a controlled substance.
The man was released on bond.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that police said they were initially concerned that women in their 20s, often seen at the man's home, were taking advantage of him.
Police begin their investigation after the man called the department several times to report missing medication, household items and a television.
But officers soon discovered he gave two women the prescription drug OxyContin in exchange for sex.
The man's attorney said a possession of a controlled substance charge was dismissed against his client because he had prescriptions for the drugs. His lawyer declined further comment.
