Stay up to date on all the Up & Coming Events in Cumberland County and surrounding areas! LIKE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Questionable Judgment As college antics go, it stands up: On Oct. 25, someone wearing a giant penis costume was escorted out of the stands at a football game between Sam Houston State University and the University of Texas at El Paso, Huff Post reported. A school spokesperson said the prankster was given "the option to take the costume off or leave the stadium." Sam Houston was winning the game until the phallic fan was removed; they lost 37-34. News You Can Use Bet you didn't know that every year, U.S. Department of Agriculture officials distribute oral rabies vaccines to raccoon populations in 14 states, driving around and targeting areas where the critters will find and eat the bait. But, as NPR reported, in rural communities, it's more efficient to drop the little packets from low- flying planes. "The planes have a tube and a conveyor belt that just drops these vaccines to make sure they're sort of evenly dispersed," said journalist Emily Mullin. Jordona Kirby with the USDA said the trick was to make the vaccines palatable to a raccoon, so they come in a fish flavor and a sweet flavor. If other animals find and eat the packets, it won't hurt them. Inexplicable Two unsuspecting visitors to Wortham Park in Houston, Texas, on Oct. 26 were the victims of a teenager's scream for attention, KHOU-TV reported. Alford Lasean Lewis, 19, and 18-year- old Kingston Miker cooked up a scheme wherein Lewis first tried to rob a man, and then sucker- punched another man in the back of the head, as Miker filmed the actions. "They did this for fun and posted it on social media, which is simply unacceptable," said Ashlea Sheridan, a prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney's office. Lewis was contrite: "You know, I just made a mistake, and everybody makes mistakes," he told KHOU. "What people don't see is that I shook his hand after and gave the man a hug." Oh well, then. Case closed. ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 It is important to pay attention to your physical health this week, Aries.

If you don't have things jotted down, brainstorm with friends on what you may want to accomplish, then make plans. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, do not turn anyone away if they come to you looking for assistance. Someone in need is likely to seek you out in the days to come and you should be ready. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 ere is no shame in taking a day off or slowing down for a breather, Leo. Spend the day in bed or lounging on the couch if you desire.

Turn on the music loudly and dance around in your home while singing along. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you could feel sluggish a few days this week.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, failure can be a tough pill to swallow, but if you don't succeed at something you have to get back up and simply try again. Don't let one setback eat at you for long. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Don't let your pride get in the way of rekindling a friendship Sagittarius. Rather than drum up old news, talk about the things you look forward to doing together.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Take the blinders or rose-colored glasses off, Aquarius. You can't adequately handle a situation unless you know all of the facts and have a clear grasp of reality. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 If things are starting to feel boring, it might be time for a change of pace, Pisces. Simple things like changing around the furniture or taking a new route home can help.
