PHOTO: A bear-y brief visit

Heather Sperling snapped this photo from the back porch of her home on Monitor Court off of Pughsville Road on Wednesday. Sperling and her friends — “us ladies call ourselves the Real Housewives of Monitor Court” — have named the bear “Wilson,” because of the “Home Improvement” character’s penchant for joining a scene in the television show while partially hidden by the fence between his and neighbor Tim Taylor’s properties. Wilson the Bear just dipped a paw into the basket, grabbed a few peanuts that had been left for squirrels and then went about his business, Sperling said. (Heather Sperling photo)
