PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- The birds do it. The bees do it. And jail inmates do it, too. Officials at a Maine jail say a female inmate was able to sneak out of her cell for a rendezvous with a male inmate. Guards at the Cumberland County Jail say inmates used cardboard from toilet paper rolls to jam cell locks and prevent them from closing. Sheriff Kevin Joyce says the female prisoner managed to get through four doors and into the cell of the male inmate. Sheriff Joyce says the investigation into the sexual encounter continues.
ALLENDALE, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan university president has a sense of humor about his boring spring break. While many students from Grand Valley State headed for some fun in the sun, Tom Haas stayed on the snow-covered campus. Haas has posted a tongue-in-cheek YouTube video showing him making a snow angel, napping on an empty bus and reading a book in a greenhouse. At the end of the video, Haas welcomes students back to campus. Classes resumed yesterday.

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -- You have to like brats in "wurst" way. Ypsilanti, Michigan, Mayor Paul Schreiber is working up an appetite for the Wurst Challenge later this month. He's one of nine people to sign up so far for the fundraiser. The big eaters will chow-down on 20-foot-long bratwursts. Ypsilanti's Wurst Bar is donating 10 cents an inch for the brats that are eaten. Participants also are raising money separately. The Wurst Challenge will benefit the FLY Children's Art Center.
