 Streakers Stranded At Denny's When Car, Clothes Stolen
Men Left To Shiver In 20-Degree Temperatures After Thief Takes Car, Clothes
 
 
Posted: January 15, 2004
SPOKANE, Washington - Three young men wore only hats, shoes and frowns Wednesday morning after an attempt to breakfast in the buff at a Spokane Denny's restaurant.
A thief ruined the streakers' prank by driving off in their getaway car - with the clothes inside.
Police arrived at the parking lot to discover the men huddled behind cars in the 20-degree weather. A police spokesman said he thinks the man "were just concealing themselves."
The three entered the restaurant before dawn - leaving their car running for a clean getaway. But, then the streakers watched through the restaurant's windows as a man who had been eating in the restaurant took off in the car.
The police spokesman said officials "always tell people to not leave their car running."
Police have not charged the streakers.

Bill Payment Arrives 5 Years After It Was Mailed
January 21, 2004
 
MIFFLINVILLE, Pennsylvania -The letter accompanying a check for $90.18 asked Dean Little not to cash it until Aug. 29, 1998. No problem. He just got it Tuesday.
Little said the aged envelope that arrived in his mail caught his eye, and so did the canceled 32-cent stamp, since postage now costs 37 cents. But the kicker was the Reading postmark from Aug. 24, 1998.
Little, a sales manager for the Bloomsburg-area Schwan's ice cream business, said the letter was from former customer Derek Seibert, of Klingerstown, in Schuylkill County, with payment enclosed on his account with Schwan's. Mifflinville postmaster Sheila Gilbert said the 5-year-old correspondence might have been lost at an out-of-town mail processing center, perhaps having gotten stuck in a piece of equipment or fallen behind a machine or counter.
Since the original check was considered lost, the Seiberts wrote the business another one. Before that, Little remembers calling about the owed money back in 1998 and being told that a check was "in the mail."
"They weren't lying," Little said.
