Spooky Wedding

* The happy couple looked a little scary.

Tom Sletten and Traci Dunn of Janesville, Wisconsin, decided to get married Sunday in a ghoulish ceremony at a haunted house.

The "scary" wedding was the bride's idea, said Cindy Clayton, the maid of honor and president of the Jaycees, the group that sponsors the fund-raising haunted house every year. Both the bride and groom have donated time creeping out visitors there.

"I thought it was a little bit crazy, but he said sure, and she kind of put the whole thing together," said Clayton, who dressed as a witch.

. . . In other Halloween news, a candy thief in Lorain, Ohio, has been ordered to pass out Halloween treats while wearing a sign saying "I'm sorry. I will not steal from children."

Edward Rivera, 23, pleaded guilty Monday to attempted robbery for stealing trick-or-treat candy from a 10-year-old boy last Halloween.

Lorain County Common Pleas Judge Edward Zaleski ordered Rivera to wear the sign and a costume while he hands out candy at a Lorain hospital today. He also placed Rivera on probation for three years.

Missing: One Tank

* The British Army lost one of its tanks last weekend. It blew away.

"If anyone has seen a flying tank please contact us. We would like it back," Army spokesman David Webb told Reuters.

The tank is inflatable. It takes three men to handle and was being used in an exercise involving troops from Britain, the United States, Canada, Belgium and Poland in the Brecon Beacons, mountains in Wales.

The violent gales that swept Britain, killing several people and causing widespread damage, also took the tank with them.

The tanks "are very realistic from a distance and hard to miss," Webb said. "But by now it might have been punctured, so it would look more like a giant tarpaulin than a tank."
