EATONTOWN, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey family whose terrier-pitbull mix escaped from their backyard during Superstorm Sandy went to an animal shelter this week to adopt a new pet and came home with their old dog.

Chuck James tells The Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1obhJ2n) that his family searched for their brown-and-white dog named Reckless for months after the October 2012 storm before finally giving up hope.

The family of five went to the Monmouth County SPCA on Thursday to adopt a new animal. James says he and his wife got teary-eyed when they approached the first cage and saw Reckless inside.

SPCA officials say Reckless was picked up as a stray and has now been microchipped.

The family is living in a hotel while their storm-damaged Keansburg home is repaired.

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit police say they've recovered the stolen head belonging to a big bobblehead of Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard.

The head of the roughly 5-foot-tall statue was reported missing around 5 a.m. Thursday from downtown's Campus Martius park. Police Chief James Craig told reporters a suspect was arrested by midmorning and the head was "safely in our custody."

Other suspects are being sought.

Police say a group was seen taking the head. Investigators planned to review surveillance footage.

Meanwhile, The Detroit News reports the head from a bobblehead of center Pavel Datsyuk was taken last week.

The bobbleheads were part of a marketing campaign. Greg Hammaren, general manager for Fox Sports Detroit, says they were to be auctioned to support the Boys & Girls Club of America after being displayed.

HELL, Mich. (AP) — The road to Hell is going to get a little better this summer.

The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports (http://bit.ly/1nLmqm1 ) a half-mile of traffic- and weather-beaten Patterson Lake Road leading to the Michigan community about 45 miles west of Detroit will be overhauled this construction season.

Mike Craine, Livingston County Road Commission's managing director, says they'll be "smoothing the road to Hell."

The cost of the $150,000 project will be shared by the road commission and Putnam Township. Patterson Lake Road is part of a winding roadway extending from Putnam Township through Hell and west into Gregory in southwestern Livingston County.

The road to Hell last got a makeover in 2010. The project is one of a number in the county to repair heavily traversed roads.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Everything has been stolen — including the kitchen sink — from the kitchen of a model house in Kansas.

Police say thieves stripped the kitchen of the Clayton Homes unit in south Wichita, taking all the upscale appliances, the wooden cabinets from the walls and, of course, the sink.

General manager Kevin McCracken says the model unit was nearly ready for display when the theft occurred, sometime between 9 p.m. Sunday and 8 a.m. Monday.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1nBM9NP ) that the missing appliances, cabinets, counters and sink, along with the cost of repairing the damage, amounts to a loss of several thousand dollars.
