• Six baby squirrels in Elkhorn, Nebraska, found themselves in a sticky situation when their tails became tangled in tree sap and knotted together in their nest. When a man noticed what looked like a six-headed squirrely cluster moving around in a tree, wildlife expert Laura Stastny, executive director of Nebraska Wildlife Rehab, got the call.
Stastny told the Omaha World-Herald that her group sees a case like this every year or so. She covered the squirrels with a towel to calm them and then snipped the fur that held them together.
• For two years, Kendra Jackson of Omaha, Neb., â€śhad a box of Puffs â€¦ everywhere I went,â€ť due to constant sneezing, coughing and nose-blowing that started after she hit her face on the dashboard during a car accident in 2013, she told KETV. Multiple doctors told her allergies were the cause, but eventually she was diagnosed with cerebrospinal fluid leak --- her brain fluid was leaking into her nasal cavity at the rate of about a half-pint a day.
In early May, Nebraska Medicine rhinologist Dr. Christie Barnes plugged the small hole between Jacksonâ€™s skull and nostrils with her own fatty tissue, giving Jackson the relief she had been seeking for years.
