Things You Thought Didn't Happen 

People would hardly expect a brawl at the Guilford (Maine) Historical Society, but in May, member Al Hunt, who was irate that rare photographs of the town had been loaned to a local restaurant, might have bumped against the society's secretary, Zarvin Shaffer. According to witnesses, Shaffer then punched Hunt in the face, Hunt's wife grabbed a chair, and Shaffer's son yanked Mrs. Hunt away by her hair.

In April, the Sycamore (Ill.) City Council voted to quadruple the fine for overstaying a parking meter (from 25 cents to $1). The city's 360 meters themselves will remain at a penny for 12 minutes, a nickel for an hour and a dime for two hours.
