Dinosaurs among us? Couple's Jurassic yard art may be headed for extinction

Dinosaurs have been spotted in a Texas neighborhood – sort of.

According to Houston's KTRK, Nancy Hentschel and her husband recently revamped their front lawn in Sugar Land's New Territory neighborhood with yard art of Jurassic proportions – huge metal sculptures of a Tyrannosaurus rex and velociraptor. 

"Obviously, it does make a little bit of a statement," Hentschel told KTRK. "And I've met more neighbors in the past 24 hours than I have in the 17 years we've lived here."

But the local homeowners' association seems to have other ideas, asking Hentschel what her future plans are for the display.

"My plans are directly tied to their plans," she told KTRK.

post on the neighborhood's Facebook page points out that the dinos are "in violation of the deed restrictions" but concedes that "they are kind of cool." 

"Kudos to the resident for even thinking of this one," the post reads.

A good Samaritan in Pendleton, Oregon, is making headlines after he rallied a group of volunteers to paint an elderly man's home.

According to KSTU, Josh Cyganik got the idea for his act of kindness after he overheard two teenagers making fun of the house of 75-year-old Leonard Bullock, saying, "They just need to burn it down."

"I saw the look on Leonard’s face," Cyganik, a track inspector for Union Pacific Railroad, said in an article posted on UPRR's website. "I could tell the comment bothered him. I don't think any elderly person should have to endure what I heard from those two kids’ mouths. I kind of stewed about it for a couple days before I decided to do something."

Cyganik, who works across the street from the home, didn't personally know Bullock at the time, even though the two did wave to each other every day. But that didn't stop Cyganik from rallying volunteers and donations on Facebook.

"I'm asking if anyone that wants to help this Saturday to volunteer their time to help paint this gentleman's house," Cyganik wrote July 15.

That weekend, more than 100 volunteers showed up, and Tum-a-Lum Lumber donated supplies for the home makeover.  

"Everybody was happy and excited," Cyganik told UPRR. "We received a lot of additional donations from people who didn't come but wanted to help. People were dropping off food and drinks all day long. Starbucks even donated 6 gallons of water and iced tea."

But volunteers weren't finished after they repainted the house. Tum-a-Lum Lumber reportedly is rebuilding Bullock's porch, and others bought him outdoor furniture.
