They hope it's a match made in clown heaven

If the key to a long marriage is laughter, these newlyweds are set. Billy Tedeski and Patty Kulwicki tied the knot Friday at an annual clown festival in central Pennsylvania. The (Harrisburg) Patriot-News reports Kulwicki literally reeled Tedeski in to start the ceremony — a bit the Pittsburgh couple had performed at Clownfest two years ago. Tedeski wore a fake nose, black lipstick and full clown regalia as he exchanged vows with Kulwicki at the festival in Lancaster. The bride wore the same dress she'd used in the skit two years ago, plus a lace headband to go along with her flame-red wig. Guests got in on the act and so did the officiant, a fellow clown. Tedeski says his fellow clowns are more than friends, they're family.

Outhouse peeper gets year in prison

An Oklahoma man found hiding in the septic tank of a park outhouse was sentenced to one year in prison, the Tulsa World reported Monday. Kenneth Webster Enlow, 52, of Tulsa pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor peeping Tom charge and was sentenced last week to the maximum one year in jail and a $5,000 fine. Authorities said Enlow was caught hiding in the septic tank of a park outhouse and peeping at a 7-year-old girl and her mother. Firefighters pulled Enlow from the tank and cleaned him off with a fire hose. He told police his girlfriend hit him in the head with a tire iron and pushed him into the tank, but did not have any injuries consistent with the story.

Raccoon 1, Man 0

Achoo! Shooter hits wrong target

A Connecticut man, attempting to confront a raccoon, accidentally shot himself in the leg while sneezing, police said. The Hartford Courant reported that James Pace Sr., 81, of New Haven told police who responded to Yale-New Haven Hospital on Saturday night he was armed with a .22 caliber rifle as he waited for a wild raccoon who continually scratched at his back door. While waiting he sneezed, fell out of his chair and accidentally shot himself in the shin, Pace said. Police said his injuries are not life-threatening.

    WASHINGTON — For years, the Environmental Protection Agency has struggled to prevent an ingredient once used in stain-resistant carpets and nonstick pans from contaminating drinking water.

    This is the Dow chemical plant near Freeport, Texas. Before the 2016 election, Dow had been in talks with the EPA to phase out the pesticide chlorpyrifos, which is blamed for disabilities in children. Dow is no longer willing to compromise.
