Today’s Highlights in History: On June 7, 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia proposed to the Continental Congress a resolution calling for American independence from Britain.

Ten years ago:
U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson ordered the breakup of Microsoft Corp., declaring the software giant should be split into two because it had “proved untrustworthy in the past”; Microsoft vowed to appeal. (An appeals court threw out the breakup order; the Justice Department, under the Bush administration, said it would no longer seek a Microsoft breakup.)

Five years ago: President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, meeting at the White House, embraced a tentative plan to forgive the debt of poor African nations.

Bear halts I-5 freeway

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Southern California freeway was briefly shut down while state wildlife officials tried to remove a bear that wandered into lanes.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Kerry Carter says the adult black bear was spotted just after midnight Sunday on surface streets near the Foothill Freeway in Duarte. The animal later walked onto the freeway, which was closed for about a half hour.

Fish and Game Department workers were eventually able to corner the bear in a flood control channel, where they tranquilized it with a dart gun.

The bear, estimated at 250 pounds, was taken to a remote forest area for release.

Attempted lawnmower repo plan goes all wrong
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A man who tried to repossess a riding lawnmower from a couple on Wednesday faces felony charges of attempted grand theft and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police said the 37-year-old Idaho man cooked up a plan to have two men he hired tell the woman using the mower that they had hit her pickup. When the woman went into the house to tell her husband, police said the suspect hopped on the lawnmower and started driving away.

The suspect told police he stopped when he noticed that the mower had the wrong serial number. He told police that he feared for his life after he was confronted by the woman’s husband and pulled out his gun.

The man told police that he is the owner of an auto sales business and had repossessed cars in the past. He expected trouble at the residence and brought the extra men with him, but said they didn’t do their job.

Three generations of Minnesota family share birthday
ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) — Three generations of Coon Rapids women are now part of a very unique club. They all share the same birthday. Roxie Koep was born on June 1. She shares the birthday with her 29-year-old mother Rachel Koep and 56-year-old maternal grandmother Paula Ballanger. According to a St. Paul Pioneer Press calculation, the chance of a mother having the same birthday as one of her parents and her newborn is 1 in 133,225.

The chance of them all having the same gender is even more remote. Many variables can affect the odds, including that June is a busier month for births than others.

Cops: Nude man yells he’s ‘Jesus’, causes accident
DARIEN, Connecticut (AP) — Police said a naked man yelling that he was ‘Jesus’ was the catalyst for a five-vehicle accident on Interstate 95 North in Darien that injured three people and slowed traffic for nearly six hours. Police Sgt. Jeremiah Marron said officers responded to reports Saturday that a nude male was causing a disturbance on I-95. As police arrived, the man got into a car but police were able to pull the vehicle over.

Police said a tractor-trailer driver then slammed on the brakes to avoid another driver distracted by the highway commotion. The big rig jackknifed, careened into four cars and flipped over.
