Don't pee on the royal palace

November 12, 2014

AMSTERDAM (AP) — If you're caught short on Amsterdam's historic Dam Square, the Dutch government has a message for you: Don't pee on the palace.
The Dutch royal family uses the stately Royal Palace in downtown Amsterdam as a working palace, not a residence. But the building's dark arches provide a favored spot for urination, often at night, out of sight of police who regularly patrol the palace vicinity.
After a multimillion-euro renovation ended in late 2011, people began urinating against the palace's sandstone facade. That prompted authorities to put up a fence.

Honoree's name spelled wrong on street signs

November 11, 2014

Is it Wooton Way or Wooten Way? Actually, neither is correct. The spelling of the peaceful residential street that runs north of Blackfoot was recently a topic of discussion on Facebook. It was discovered that the street has been spelled incorrectly for over 40 years. The street signs (on both ends of the street) read "Wooton," while the city maps in the local phone books have it spelled "Wooten." However, the correct spelling should be "WOOTTON" after its namesake local farmer and former Bingham County Clerk Vincent Fredrick (V.F.) Wootton.
