Woman reaches goal: a headstand in all 50 states

KETCHIKAN, Alaska

A 71-year-old woman has completed her mission of performing a headstand in all 50 states.

The Ketchikan Daily News reports retiree Anne Bruinooge checked the last state off her list May 24 as she laid down a mat and did a headstand outside of the Alaska newspaper’s office.

Bruinooge says she has been traveling around the country for the past decade, doing headstands in every state that she and her husband visit.

Bruinooge, who is an avid participant of yoga, says her motivation was simply “the fun of doing headstands.”

Bruinooge says she isn’t sure if anyone else has ever attempted to do a headstand in each state.

5 hospitalized in accident that freed swarms of bees

LANESBOROUGH, Mass.

Several people were hospitalized in a head-on collision with a car transporting bees in western Massachusetts.

The Berkshire Eagle reports five people, including a 4-year-old boy, were taken to Berkshire Medical Center after a crash in Lanesborough on May 26.

Police responded to the scene shortly before 2 p.m. to find a Ford station wagon carrying hundreds of bees and a Chevrolet Sedan had crashed.

Police say the collision was at least somewhat caused by bees getting loose and stinging the driver. Several people on the scene were stung, but none were hospitalized for their stings.

The beekeeper refused to be taken to the hospital for evaluation and tried to collect the bees into several hives.

Man climbs into Dunkin’ Donuts window, leaves

METHUEN, Mass.

Perhaps they ran out of Boston Kremes.

A man accused of climbing into the drive-thru window of a Massachusetts Dunkin’ Donuts and then promptly climbing right back out has been apprehended.

Police say they responded to a security alarm at a shop in Methuen on May 27 and saw video surveillance footage showing a man pushing the drive-thru window open and climbing into the store. He immediately turned and left out the window.

Officials arrested the man that evening but had not identified him.

In a Facebook post that included the security footage, police did not say if the man stole anything from the Dunkin’ Donuts, or if he has any affiliation with the store.
