A Kingsport, Tennessee, man was arrested for allegedly agreeing to sell his 6-year-old daughter in order to get bail money for his girlfriend. Shawn Wayne Hughes was arrested Wednesday. His girlfriend had been arrested March 21 on a charge of child abuse and neglect.

A Canadian woman who got a note from a neighbor calling her seasonal decorations “tacky” said she planned to “go worse” with her Easter decorations. Lori Perron got an anonymous note from a neighbor that said “do not demoralize our subdivision and street with yet again, your very tacky decorations. Halloween and Christmas was enough. Perhaps you should consider that this area is a step above you.” At first, Perron said she was hurt by the note. Then, the more she thought about it, she decided to go even bigger with this year’s Easter display. The result? A slew of bunnies on the lawn, dozens of eggs, and other decorations hanging from the porch. Perron said she’d like the neighbor who wrote the note to come forward and meet her family in person. She even invited them to dinner.
