Kirk Ammons is accused of going into Wal-Mart on Thursday, loading up a grocery cart, then taking it to the pet department and pulling used Wal-Mart sacks from his pockets, bagging up the merchandise, and walking out without paying for it. This time around, according to Wal-Mart loss-prevention personnel, Ammons took mostly food items, worth a total of less than $100. However, this is the fifth time he’s allegedly pulled the scheme, according to security videos. Four times since mid-February, Wal-Mart cameras have recorded Ammons putting a Lego set in a sack and carrying it out without paying. Each of those were worth $140. All together, the total merchandise stolen is worth almost $600, enough that authorities have sought a warrant for Ammons on a Class C Felony theft charge.

A water line break yesterday leads to a 24-hour boil order, in effect until 5:30 tonight. Officials say the break happened at the corner of Second Street and Frankford Avenue yesterday afternoon, when volunteers preparing to clean up some demolished buildings accidentally drove a skid-steer loader over the line.
Work to repair it started about 4:30pm, and was done within the hour. Because the line was open to outside air and possible debris, the state requires a precautionary boil order for the next 24 hours. Those in Novinger living south of Second Street and west of Frankford Avenue should bring any drinking water to a full boil before using it.
T-shirts, raffle tickest and garden items can be purchased all throughout the day, as well as the bar-be-que lunch. The tree planting will start at two p.m. and anyone in attendance can plant a tree. New plants and trees will help start the new Green Thumb garden which is made possible, in part, by the Lowe’s grant the project has received. Ashley May explains that the new garden has even greater possibilities and gardeners won’t have to move too far.
The new garden will have space for a much greater amount of flowers and plants and this Sunday’s ceremony will start the growing process. Come celebrate Earth Day from twelve-thirty to four at Ray Miller Elementary.
