95-year-old N.H. man fights off robber with cane

MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) -- An elderly WWII veteran fought off a robber who allegedly tried to take his wallet on Saturday, CBS Boston reports.

Arthur Kamberis, 95, of Manchester, New Hampshire, was leaving a local Walgreen's just after 9 a.m. when a man approached him, according to the station. Police said the suspect allegedly grabbed Kameris' arm and reached for his wallet.

Then, "Kamberis started to fight off the attacker and hit him several times with his cane," according to a statement by the Manchester Police Department to CBS Boston.

A witness rushed into action, trying to help the elderly man, but the would-be victim wasn't hurt and the robbery suspect ran away.

"He wasn't very aggressive, but I was," Kamberis told CBS Boston.

Tennessee senior prank gets principal suspended
MADISONVILLE, Tenn. (CBS) - Officials say a senior "prank" at an East Tennessee high school that left the floors littered with trash, hay, urine and dead animals took things too far.

Monroe County Director of Schools Tim Blankenship told media outlets that the incident last week at Sequoyah High School amounted to mass vandalism and that the students involved won't be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony. In addition, Blankenship suspended the school's principal, and a school resource officer was fired.

More than 100 graduating seniors will not walk across the graduation stage, reports CBS affiliate WTVF-TV in Nashville.

Blakenship said Principal Gary Cole would remain suspended without pay pending the results of an investigation

Monroe County Sheriff Tommy Jones Jr. said Deputy James Fisher was fired for lying about his involvement. He said video surveillance shows Fisher letting students into the school, leaving and returning later.

Power outages in Jackson County

On Monday, May 04, 2015, Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office were notified phone lines were down in areas of Phoenix and Talent. 

If citizens have an emergency requiring assistance and cannot dial 9-1-1 you can call 541-535-1113 to report your emergency, or you can contact your local law enforcement agency or fire station. 

At this time, there is not an estimated time of repair, but Century Link has been contacted and is currently working to resolve the problem.

Housing shortage plagues Jackson County residents
by Jackie Garrity/KTVL.com
MEDFORD, Ore.- - An ongoing housing shortage is effecting the lives of thousands of Jackson County residents. According to the Jackson County Housing Authority, they have 2,200 housing vouchers for residents and currently have a waiting list of 4,000.
“She’s on the waiting list. They’re telling us it will be two years. We want a two bedroom. There’s just nothing available” said the caregiver for Brenda Savage. 
Brenda Savage is a 62 year old woman with several disabilities. She told us her roommate recently moved out unexpectedly and left her in a bind. Now she is frantically trying to find an apartment she can afford. 
However, that’s the problem. For residents needing low-income housing, there just isn’t much available. 
“Units are scarce. It is difficult for people to find a place and it also leads to escalation of rents” said Scott Foster, Executive Director of Jackson County Housing Authority.

Foster told us they add 50 units a year but it isn’t enough to keep up with the increase in population. He said this is a continuation of the economic downturn of 2007-2009.
Foster advice?
“Be patient” he said.

Beard swabs yield 'disturbing' results

(NEWSER) – Beard hygiene is important unless you want to have the equivalent of a dirty toilet seat growing out of your face, according to a microbiologist who swabbed a bunch of beards and was shocked by the results.

"I'm usually not surprised and I was surprised by this," Quest Diagnostics expert John Golobic explains that some samples yielded the "types of things you'd find in" fecal matter, signaling a "degree of uncleanliness that would be somewhat disturbing" even if the beard matter probably won't make people sick. Golobic says that similar results in a public water system would close it for disinfecting. He urges the bearded to keep their beards—and hands—clean, and "to keep your hands away from your face, as much as possible."

Nick Evershed at the Guardian, however, notes that this wasn't exactly a scientific study—and even if it was, the diversity of microbes found on human skin means it wouldn't have to be cause for concern. Evershed checked out a few more serious studies on beard bacteria, which were conducted in hospitals, and found that while bearded workers do appear to shed more bacteria than others, even clean-shaven workers shed enough to show the importance of "face coverings for sterile procedures, regardless of your facial hair situation." (A bank robber in Pittsburgh disguised his beard with another beard.)
