Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (4-30-2016)

This mayor is a thief, and apparantly, no one saw the signs...............LOL, sorry, I couldn't resist. You'll get it later. 

A mayor in upstate New York is facing criminal charges for allegedly stealing  111 road signs from the state’s Department of Transportation.

New York State Police arrested Frank Moracco Monday on charges of misconduct and petit larceny.

Both charges are Class "A" misdemeanors according to

Moracco, 60, has served as the mayor of Frankfort Village since 2004, and has worked as a sign shop foreman for the state’s Department of Transportation since 2001.

Police started investigating Moracco in July of 2015 after getting a tip from someone in the town, New York State Police spokesman Jack Keller said.

He took 111 road signs made at the shop and gave them to the Village of Frankfort Street Department.

“There were a variety of signs, including yield and stop signs,” Keller said “A village usually has to apply to get signs and then pay a fee. [Moracco] bypassed that process.”

Moracco was issued an appearance ticket for the charges and is due in Frankfort Town Court May 3.

It is unknown what has happened to the road signs allegedly stolen by Moracco. 

But that sounds like a crack head move to me!

If idea of running a half marathon 13.1 miles  makes you want to run and hide, good news. It may not be as hard as it seems.

Thousands of people do it every week. Dogs have done it. And a 12-year-old girl just completed a half marathon by accident....... 
LeeAdianez Rodriguez-Espada, 12, was running late to the Wegman's Family 5k Sunday in Rochester, New York. To save time, her mom dropped her near the starting line before parking the car. LeeAdianez, who goes by Lee, rushed to the starting line only to realize the race had already begun. 
She was told to just start running and quickly fell into pace with the others.
Meanwhile her mom found a spot at the finish line, expecting to congratulate her daughter within the hour. 
Lee, focused on putting one foot in front of the other, didn't realize until mile 4 that the finish line was nowhere in sight. Turning to another runner, she asked how much further. 
"And that's when it struck me I was in the half marathon instead of the 5k," Rodriguez-Espada said. Instead of dropping out, she decided to keep running. 
Realizing her daughter wasn't among the runners crossing the 5k finish line, Brendalee Espada alerted race officials and the police. At first, authorities, were concerned.
"We didn't know where she was," race organizer Ellen Brenner-Boutillier told.
A police officer eventually found Lee on the course of the Flower City Half Marathon. The young runner said she knew her family was worried but she couldn't quit. She needed to finish the race. And as she finally crossed the finish line, after running 10 miles more than she had planned, her mother cried tears of joy.
One Word; AWESOME!

Pizza is the best, but let’s face it: Pizza boxes are the worst.

They’re clunky. Cardboard feels terrible on your fingers. And when you’re finished with your pizza, you can’t reuse the box for anything because it’s covered in disgusting grease. It just sits by your door attracting bugs until you can work up the motivation to drag out it to the trash, since the grease and cheese stains typically render them non-recyclable . (Though if you have a compost bin, you can compost them!)

No more.

Brooklyn pizza joint Vinnies Pizzaria has solved this plethora of problems 
by creating a pizza box that's madeout of pizza. The whole shebang will run you $40, but hey, it’s also a lot more pizza than just a pizza.

Owner Sean Bertuaime came up with the idea because he was bored, he told news station Pix 11. He also noted that for now, the restaurant is encouraging customers ordering the box to pick up their order rather than have it delivered. As NBC reported Friday, they’re still trying to figure out the best way to deliverthe pizza without using an actual box and thus defeating the whole point.

Vinnie’s achieved viral fame around this time last year when the shop introduceda pizza topped with smallerpizza slices. They also recently created a killer Prince tribute on their menu board.
