Sunrise in the Sandhills Have U Heard...? Brought to you weekday mornings between 7:00 and 7:30 by Audiology of the Sandhills on WIOZ... It might be time for a general reminder about a fact that two people in Los Angeles County have had to be reminded of in the past week: most people can't fit through a chimney. The latest lesson was taught to a 13-year-old girl who ended up stuck in her chimney at home. Firefighters had to free her before taking her to a hospital to be examined. No word on how she managed to get stuck. City News Service says it's the second time in less than a week someone got stuck in a chimney in the LA area. A woman who locked herself out of her home in Pomona, California, decided to use the chimney to get inside. She became lodged inside and it took five hours for neighbors to hear her cries for help. And just last week we reported the story of a man in Ohio who got stuck in a chimney... and he was naked. Law enforcement agencies remind you to have a safe Memorial Day weekend... and stay out of chimneys.

Sunrise in the Sandhills Have U Heard....? Brought to you by Audiology of the Sandhills, between 7 and 7:30 weekday mornings on WIOZ.. This is one story that gives whole new meaning to the idea of a police chase. That's because in this case, police were both the chasers — and the chased. Police have released tape of their pursuit of a driver who led officers on a high-speed chase in Fairlawn, Ohio. When they finally caught up, the driver was quite familiar with the drill — because it was an off-duty police officer. And to top it off — so was the passenger of the car. The driver, Justin Herstich, is charged with not complying with police, reckless operation and speeding. The other officer hasn't been charged.
