  VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California man is facing vandalism charges after authorities say he painted a crosswalk on a street, allegedly telling officials it was needed.
     Fifty-two-year-old Anthony Cardenas was arrested Thursday morning in Vallejo and booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of felony vandalism. Solano County Sheriff's Lt. Brad DeWall says workers spotted Cardenas committing the vandalism at a city intersection.
     The intersection already has three crosswalks. 
     DeWall says Cardenas also painted lines through those.
     State transportation workers painted over Cardenas' alleged crosswalk later in the day. A police cadet had been posted at the intersection until then to keep pedestrians from using it.
     Cardenas remained behind bars Friday on $15,000 bail. Dewall says he did not have an attorney.

  SUMTERVILLE, Fla. (AP) - In many circumstances, a piglet without the use of its hind legs would be put down. But Chris P. Bacon's unusual condition has made him an international star and an inspiration to those with disabilities.
     When Chris was born in Florida, a woman brought him into Len Lucero's veterinary office, assuming the animal would be euthanized.
     But Lucero noticed how the little pig pulled himself along with his front legs. Lucero says he couldn't euthanize the pig and brought it home.
     Lucero built a wheelchair out of some of his son's toys so Chris could move around, then found a dog-sized harness and cart.
     Chris is now 22 pounds and inspires people around the world. His Facebook page and website recently helped him land a three-book publishing deal.

     OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Two longtime friends ended up in jail in central Florida thanks to a "bucket list" that included stealing from a store.
     Police say 36-year-old Andrea Mobley and 38-year-old Jennifer Morrow face petty theft charges after stealing bathing suits and beef jerky during a trip to Wal-Mart on Wednesday.
     A loss prevention officer told police Mobley was eating beef jerky in the store and Morrow concealed items inside her purse. They were detained after taking the items from the store without paying.
     The Ocala Star-Banner reports the women told police they hadn't seen each other in years and stealing from a retail store was on the "bucket list."
     Mobley told the newspaper they were just "two stupid women" doing something they'd never done before. She added she's ashamed.

 ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A Virginia family has its aliens back.
     Robert and Dian Bolling of Roanoke unveiled a new pair of plastic yard decorations on Wednesday. The bright green figurines replace ones that were abducted from the family's front yard in April. 
     The replacements were provided without charge by Norfolk manufacturer General Foam Plastics. 
     The Roanoke Times ( reports one of the newspaper's readers who had driven by the Bollings' home every day did an online search for possible replacements. She found a set that looked like the missing ones and contacted the company, which found a pair of green aliens tucked away in a warehouse.
     The reader obtained the Bollings' address from the newspaper and passed it along to the company, which shipped out the aliens to the surprise of the family.
