ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) \u2014 A single mom is generating attention online after she donned a mustache, dressed up like a dad for a school breakfast event and posed for photos with her son.

KSL-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2lzXYZY) Whitney Kittrell wore the costume after deciding to fulfill her son's request that she accompany him to a \"Dads and Donuts\" event.

Kitrell is divorced with full custody of her children and says some days have been better than others for the family.

She said her son was all happiness as he introduced her to his classmates as both parents.

Kittrell said Lucas told her he wanted her to go since she's his dad too.

The St. George mom posted the photos online and received a surprisingly strong response.

TRURO, Mass. (AP) \u2014 A Jeep that has been stuck inside a Massachusetts sand dune for 40 years is set to be removed.

The Cape Cod Times reports (http://bit.ly/2kRGjsH ) the Jeep Wagoneer is entombed in a garage in Truro that became overtaken by the dune decades ago.

Basil Musnuff's mother owns the property. He says he began visiting in the 1970s and has never seen the Jeep driven.

Musnuff says the family has wanted to get the Jeep out of the collapsing garage for years but the town wouldn't let them move the sand due to concerns about the dune system.

Town officials recently changed their approach to the shifting sands and asked the family to remove the vehicle.

The removal is scheduled for Friday, weather permitting.

PFAFSTAETTEN, Austria (AP) \u2014 So many people want to be Donald Trump this Carnival season in Austria that some costume shops have run out of wigs mimicking the U.S. president's memorable hairstyle.

Shop owner Manuela Plank, recognizing a business opportunity, went to work making her own toupees a la Trump.

Plank thought she was ready to meet demand with the 10 Trump wigs she had stocked for Austria's pre-Lenten season of balls and other masked events. But they were quickly snapped up.

That's when she started snipping, backcombing, teasing and spraying blond hairpieces to give them the trademark Trump look.

\"It all takes quite a bit of time,\" Plank said as she assessed her latest creation on Monday. \"You have to do a lot of back-combing. But you can get it done.\"

Her shop in the town of Pfaffstaetten, south of Vienna carries over 7,000 costumes, including ancient Greek outfits and the lace and ruffles of the Rococo period. But the Trump look is trumping most others.

Plank says that 25 of her Trump wigs are now in circulation within her community of just 3,500 people. Since Carnival extends into early March this year, she is making more.

\"I think it's simply because a lot of people are talking about him. And because everybody knows him,\" she said. \"And his hairstyle is very distinctive.\"

While many Austrians go all-out for Carnival, Plank says dressing up as Trump carries extra appeal for people who don't have the patience to create elaborate costumes.

\"Wig, suit \u2014 and done,\" she says, tucking a stray wisp of plastic hair in place.

BRUSSELS (AP) \u2014 The Star-Spangled Banner looked more starry than usual during one of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence's appearances in Brussels.

A background picture of the American flag that went up alongside the European Union flag as Pence and EU leader Donald Tusk spoke on Monday had 51 stars instead of the usual 50, one for each state.

The Brussels version of the flag had three rows of nine stars and three rows with eight stars each. American flags typically feature a total of nine alternating rows of five or six stars

The EU flag featuring 12 stars in a circle against a blue background was configured correctly. And the American flag had the right number of stripes \u2014 13.

The EU Council did not immediately respond when asked about the error with the misplaced star-state.

CARBONDALE, Colo. (AP) \u2014 Police in western Colorado say a man battered somebody else's pickup with a baseball bat and then left a note acknowledging he had anger issues.

Police say the note read, \"Sorryy anger isusesh.\"

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent reports (http://bit.ly/2laQ9t7 ) the attack occurred in January near Carbondale.

The pickup's owner found the damage and the note when he returned from snowmobiling. Two witnesses told police another snowmobiler apparently thought the pickup had parked too close to his vehicle.

The witnesses say they heard whacking sounds, and one saw the other snowmobiler swinging a bat. They told police they insisted he leave a note. They say he was then able to leave his parking spot with no problem.

Police say they arrested a 53-year-old man on a criminal mischief charge.

This story has been corrected to show the suspect is 53, not 63.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) \u2014 Some joggers weren't joking when they said they were going out for a \"brief run.\"

In briefs, boxers, bras and bloomers, they ran three-quarters of a mile in a Valentine's Day-related charity event benefiting sick children.

Saturday's annual Cupid's Undie Run featured 1,000 people in their underwear and little else, except for maybe some body-painted hearts, angels and Cupid's arrows on their chests. Participants, some of whom shaved hearts into their chest hair, ran through the streets near the city's sports stadiums.

Previous years' events have taken place despite snow, but weather for this year's was sunny with temperatures approaching 70 degrees, prompting runners in their scanty panties to chirp, \"Sun's out! Buns out!\"

Sisters Melissa Tamimi, in gray panties and a matching sports bra, and Sofia Tamimi, in black panties and a gray lacy bra, had no problem mentioning their unmentionables.

\"I'm about as comfortable as you could be running in underwear,\" Melissa Tamimi said.

Similar events took place in other cities, including St. Louis, Miami, Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Money was raised for the Children's Tumor Foundation to help research neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumors in the nervous system. The incurable disorder can cause physical deformities, blindness, deafness and chronic pain, usually in adolescents.

Runner Jeff Eckert, who's 30 years old, said he was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, also called NF, when he was 5. He said he was participating in the Undie Run wearing Superman boxer shorts to help raise money and awareness.

Philadelphia race director Dan Frenia, whose wife and 12-year-old son have been diagnosed with NF, said this year's race raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and the national events have raised about $20 million over the last few years. He said he hoped to grow the Philadelphia event from 1,000 people to 3,000 or more and spread the word about NF so a cure can be found.

\"This is our passion in life,\" he said. \"This isn't just a one-day event for us.\"

Cupid's Undie Run is a fun run, not a race, organizers said, so there was no declared winner other than the Children's Tumor Foundation.

Friends Ellie Russo and Kendra Scherer ran among the 53 members of a team called Hope for Ella, which was named in honor of a 10-year-old girl with NF and raised the most money on Saturday, $26,810. They wore red bras and matching cheeky boy shorts with a message on the buttocks: \"I take my pants off for charity.\"

DENVER (AP) \u2014 A 26-year-old man says he was making an action video with friends when he fell 40 feet down the chimney of a downtown Denver apartment building.

Dustin Hinkle tells KCNC-TV (https://goo.gl/DJSZVB ) that he and a couple of friends were making a Parkour video on the roof of the Denver City Lofts on Thursday when he fell through a chimney cover. Parkour involves moving from point to point using obstacles along the way.

Hinkle plummeted down the old incineration chimney until a cable caught his fall. He was stuck for nearly two hours until firefighters broke through a brick wall to get him out.

Hinkle, who along with his friends is facing a trespassing charge, says he thought he was going to die and he didn't believe in God until he survived the fall.

SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) \u2014 An Arizona sanctuary is sheltering seven cows that were intended for slaughter as part of an effort that owners believe promotes peace and good health.

Goshala cow sanctuary President Naren Koka told the Casa Grande Dispatch (http://bit.ly/2luqVqh) that the organization protects cows while educating people about how saving these animals promotes a sustainable ecosystem.

\"We believe that kindness to animals leads to kindness to humans and hence a peaceful world,\" Koka said.

Groups visit the farm and cows make public appearances to spread awareness.

Support comes from the Indian community and some animal advocates. One cow's care can cost $150 monthly.

A volunteer said the cows' milk cannot be sold but is shared with groups for religious uses. \"One of the purposes in establishing Goshala was so milk may be offered for deity worship at temple,\" said one of the founders, Prayag Narayan Misra.

Cows are good for the Earth when they are given proper care, Koka said.

\"Cows eat grass, and the cow dung is very good for the earth. It protects the topsoil, and the manure can be used to feed the corn,\" he said. \"The manure has anti-bacterial properties. In India, it's mixed with water and used as a floor cleanser, and the cow urine is a natural way to repel insects from plants.\"

The sanctuary plans to bring cows to the Festival of Colors on March 19 in Tempe.
