Nitwit News – January 30

An Ohio woman hates her given first name so much she wants a judge in Licking County to change it. Ranea Crabtree is what she goes by now, but she shudders when she’s asked her given first name: Sheila. Horrible, isn’t it? Sheila, er, Ranea thinks so. She calls the name “ugly”. And so, on February 11, Ranea will go before a judge and ask him to change her name to Sexy. Ranea says, “I wear Victoria’s Secret clothes all the time. I was like, ‘Shoot, I’ll just go for Sexy.’” And if the judge doesn’t approve Sexy, she’ll settle for Sparkle.

David Counceller is the chief of police in Connersville, Indiana, who is running for Fayette County sheriff. He went to a gun shop to check out the newest version of the Glock .40 caliber pistol he carries on the job, and managed to shoot himself. He apparently tried the new gun in his holster, and when he was putting his own gun back it got tangled in his clothing, which caused it to discharge. The bullet went into his leg and then into the floor. Counceller takes full responsibility: “I need to pay more attention. I know what the dangers are. It was pure carelessness on my part.” Something similar happened to Counceller 15 years ago when he shot himself in the hand while unloading his gun.
