Illegal prison meal plan

WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Penitentiary says an inmate on a work crew killed and butchered a deer that was entangled in netting at the prison's pheasant farm near Walla Walla.

Spokeswoman Shari Hall says the minimum-security prisoner killed the deer last Saturday using a box cutter that the crew is allowed to use. Investigators acting on a tip Tuesday found about 15 pounds of venison in garbage bags in the farm's break room.

Hall says she didn't know what the inmate intended to do with the meat. The break room has no cooking equipment, and no campfires are allowed on the farm.

The inmate, who is a former butcher, lost work crew privileges and could face other punishment. He is incarcerated on a drug conviction and is scheduled to be released in December 2012.

Mainers make ‘rocket car' with Mentos, soda
BUCKFIELD, Maine (AP) - The guys from Maine who became online celebrities by creating geysers from Mentos candies and Diet Coke say they have harnessed that power to create a "rocket car."

The contraption created by Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz of Buckfield features a utility trailer on the back and a modified girl's bike at the front.

They're offering a teaser of their invention on their website. The full video directed by Rob Cohen of "The Fast and the Furious" will debut online Tuesday.

Grobe tells the Sun Journal newspaper that their latest invention uses Coke Zero and has been dubbed "The Fizzy and the Furious."

The two, dressed in lab coats and goggles, became Internet celebrities four years ago with their "experiments" that created geysers by dropping Mentos candies into bottles of Diet Coke.

Nigeria: President Goodluck's wife wins motorcycle
LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) - It appears as though Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan's luck might have rubbed off on his wife.

A spokesman for Union Bank says First Lady Patience Jonathan has won a motorcycle in a drawing the bank held for its customers.

Union Bank spokesman Francis Barde told The Associated Press on Friday that officials have informed the first lady that she won and invited her to claim the motorcycle, known throughout Nigeria as an "okada."

Chance has played a large part in putting Jonathan into the presidency of the oil-rich nation. Jonathan formally assumed office after the May 5 death of the elected president.

Lebron the jaguar is set to leave Cleveland
AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A LeBron is leaving northeast Ohio, but it's a cat, not a Cavalier.

Whether NBA superstar LeBron James is staying with the Cleveland Cavaliers is still a big question, but the Akron Zoo said Thursday it will say goodbye to another LeBron, a jaguar born there last year.

By mid-June, the cat is going to the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Fla., in hopes he'll produce offspring with a female jaguar named Masaya.
