Mint, a suggestion that you make a commit-"mint" to relax.
"Sometimes I feel like I'm a poster child for stress," Sue said. "And I feel this is as helpful to me, to remind myself how to deal with stress, as it is for the people I speak to."
'48 Hours' visits
The big cameras came to the Morgan County Courthouse on Oct. 5.
A camera crew from CBS' "48 Hours Investigates" went to Circuit Judge Glenn Thompson's courtroom to stage footage for the segment it plans to air about the murder trial of Daniel Wade Moore. He is accused of the 1999 stabbing death of Karen Tipton.
A producer said the segment is scheduled to air next month, Sheryl Marsh reports.
A ditch, not a dump
A Morgan County employee caught someone dumping rubbish along a roadside.
Decatur police told Chris Paschenko that the employee confronted the man, who thought he'd test the employee's intelligence.
The man said he had permission to dump roofing shingles, light fixtures and wire in the ditch off Kirby Bridge Road because someone would bury it later.
Not fooled, the employee gave police the man's license plate number, but officers weren't able to find him.
Autumn's big baby
Is your Halloween pumpkin big enough?
It took five men and a forklift to get Ron and Sue Boor's 1,085-pound prize pumpkin onto the scale at the West Virginia Pumpkin Festival, according to The Associated Press.
The Boors have toiled in their pumpkin patch since May. They installed irrigation and a shade tent, attended gardening seminars and watered endlessly.
At the prize pumpkin's peak growth, it gained about 35 pounds a night and consumed about 200 gallons of water per day.
"It's worse than raising a baby," Sue said.
