Officers of a Monroe-based charity that is under investigation by federal authorities donated nearly $50,000 to conservative candidates and causes in recent years, Federal Elections Commission records show. Angel Food Ministries Inc., a nonprofit that supplies cut-rate groceries to families nationwide, is under scrutiny by the FBI and the IRS.
Agents carried away boxes of documents last Wednesday from the ministry and a related company in Walton County. Tax returns show the nonprofit’s officers saw huge pay raises from 2006 to 2007, and they apparently spread the money around. They were most generous to the National Republican Congressional Committee, to which Angel Food founder and CEO Joseph Wingo gave $12,500 in 2007.

Astronomers recorded the most powerful pulse of radiation ever observed; the radiation was emitted from a pulsar 12,000 light-years from Earth and was “capable of totally vaporising and ionising all known materials, shredding them into hot plasma.”
Alberta dentist Michael Zuk, the owner of a molar that belonged to John Lennon, revealed that he hoped to clone a new Lennon and raise him as a son. “Hopefully keep him away from drugs,” said Zuk, “but, you know, guitar lessons wouldn’t hurt.”
