US: Fitness Phantom Floating Amid Dumbbells Spooks Kansas Gym Owner

Security cameras at a Kansas gym caught a white ghostly image flitting amid the dumbbells in the middle of the night, spooking the facility's owner.

The possible fitness phantom floated around the nautilus and weight-lifting equipment for about two hours in the Overland Park Anytime Gym, which was empty, according to KMBC-TV in Kansas City. At one point, the orb lingered by the dumbbells.

The motion-sensitive camera was set off a total of about nine times between about 2:20 and 4:14 a.m. on Sept. 12.

Newspaper Editors, UFOs, the Greatest Story Ever Untold and Just a Dash of Bobby Kennedy

"Those of us in public life often call upon the press to be more understanding, sometimes with justice. But we also know that the day you are unanimously joined in praise of officials or policies, when power is held in awe and skepticism disappears -- on that day democracy will begin to wither."

"Where the question is one of policy and national direction, the bias -- by government and press -- should be toward disclosure. . .There is always a tendency in government to confuse secrecy with security."

"We are long past the time when a few men could fully comprehend the operations of government."

(-- Remarks by Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, from his address to the American Society of Newspaper Editors in 1967.)

UK: Mysterious odour causes problems for residents

A foul smelling odour that was noticed from Townsend Way to the top end of Malvern Link had residents baffled last week. Some speculated it may have been blocked drains caused by the heavy rain experienced in the area, while others thought a reckless farmer's muck sprayer may have been to blame.

Adrian Beard and his wife Dawn, from Hampden Road, Malvern Link, called the Gazette on Friday afternoon (September 5) when they could not take the smell any longer.

Mr Beard said: "I smelt it last night about 11 or 12 o'clock just when we were taking the dogs out. This morning it was just horrible."
