  Man charged with mischief after riding fire truck A man has been charged with mischief after he rode on top of a fire truck on Sunday in the West End. The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service responded to a call around 3:30 p.m. about a man who had allegedly pulled a fire alarm at an apartment on Ellice Avenue, somewhere between Victor and Sherbrook streets. Firefighters called police for help with the unco-operative man but by the time the officers arrived the man had calmed down.

The latest artist taking the world by storm is a massive Argentinian lizard named Winston.

Footage shows the tegu lizard, owned by Sarah Curry of Michigan, dipping its claws and tail in paint before thrashing against the canvas in a manner that calls to mind the works of Jackson Pollock.

Sarah, a graphic designer, puts the paintings up for auction and they tend to sell for up to $75. Incredibly, the pair have raised $1,000 and it’s going towards the Australia Fire Relief fund. She said:

He was once owned by someone who was not sure about his needs so they couldn’t provide the proper care he needed to thrive. They eventually dropped him off in a box in front of a zoo at the Great Lakes Zoological Society in the month of October. He was underweight, skin was not in good shape and he needed some TLC.

She went on to add:

With Australia facing the fires and devastation, I wanted to do something to help as much as I can. So, I did some research after speaking to zookeepers and vets and I listened to them after reading on different paints. Then I just let Winston do what he does best… Make a big mess! They turned out beautiful and he seemed to enjoy how the paint felt on his feet.

This lizard is truly an inspiration to us all.


Disabled artist selling her work to help a museum in need .
Born with a rare defect, Jessica Jewett paints and draws with her mouth. The 38-year-old history buff is on a mission to memorialize a Civil War hero, General Joshua Chamberlain. "He got shot through the pelvis and it was in such a way that it debilitated him for the rest of his life. But he was still able to become governor of Maine and president of Bowdoin College," Jewett said.But when Jewett visited Chamberlain's 200-year-old home, which is now the Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum, its frayed condition was less than inspiring.
