    Healdsburg police said a prankster stuck a huge nail into the lawn outside the city's community center where a giant hammer sculpture was stolen from earlier this month.

    The three-and-a-half-foot metal nail with the word "bait" etched on its head was found by employees around 8 a.m. Monday, Healdsburg police Officer Darryl Erkel said.

    The 800-pound metal and wood hammer that measured 21 feet in length and six feet in height was stolen late on Oct. 5 or early on Oct. 6.

    The artist, Doug Unkrey has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
