LINDON, Utah (AP) — Kerri Bunker and Kelli Wall know a thing or two about twins.
The two women are identical twins who already each have one set of twins. Now, they are getting ready to each have a second set of twins next spring.
“To have twins twice is incredible,” Wall said.
The Lindon women both had their first set of fraternal twins after using in vitro fertilization after they struggled to get pregnant. This summer, both found out they are having twins again. They are both due two weeks apart next spring.
“It was like just one shock after another all summer long,” Bunker said.
It marked the latest sign that the two women are destined to live similar lives. They are both teachers at the same school, and they married best friends.
DOG PARK USES GOATS TO CLEAR BRUSH
PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (AP) — A new dog park in Rhode Island got some help from a group of land-clearing specialists: goats.
Organizers used a herd of the ravenous ruminants to clear brush from a plot of land in Portsmouth that will eventually be turned over to man’s best friend.
Kim Cipolla said the 17 goats ate around the clock over an area about the size of two football fields.
The goats ate everything from poison ivy to thick brush and thorns. They even dug up a buried fire hydrant, perfect for a dog park.
Cipolla said they are cheaper than a bulldozer and construction crew, and environmentally friendly. She said it’s “animals helping animal.”

The Street Vendor Project sponsors the annual event. It announced this year’s Vendy Cup winner is Snowday, a truck specializing in grilled cheese sandwiches with a touch of maple syrup using ingredients from New York farms.
The half-dozen Vendy categories include the People’s Choice, which Snowday also won.
More than 2,000 people gathered Saturday on Governors Island, where eight food experts voted.
