An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Mozes Joseph Jimenez, 25, Twin Falls, Idaho
Idaho man arrested for carrying stolen goods past cop and fleeing when cop tried to arrest him. A man caught shoplifting at Target walked past a Twin Falls Police Officer with an armful of clothing he was planning to steal, police said. He then pretended to look for a receipt for the stolen goods in his car and fled, nearly hitting the officer, police said. Mozes Joseph Jimenez, 25, was arraigned Tuesday in Twin Falls Magistrate Court on a charge of felony burglary. Officer Matthew Ferronato was at Target, 1611 Blue Lakes Blvd., on May 30 speaking with a manager when a customer approached and said a man carried several clothing items out of the store without paying for them, court documents said. Ferronato went outside to find Jimenez walking toward a car carrying clothes without a bag that were still on hangers and had tags attached to them, police said. Ferronato reported that when asked if he had a receipt for the clothes Jimenez appeared to become nervous and slowly reached into his pocket. He then pulled his hand out with nothing in it. Jimenez opened his car door and said the receipt must be in the car, court documents said. Jimenez then proceed to look behind his seat underneath a windshield cover. Jimenez sat down into the driver seat and started to reach under the front passenger seat, police said. Ferronato asked him to step out of the car, but Jimenez turned it on and threw it in reverse. He backed up so quickly Ferronato had to run out of the way to avoid being sideswiped, court documents said. Ferronato got into his car and began pursuit, but after Jimenez turned onto Fillmore Street and then North College Road Ferronato was ordered to stop the chase, police said. An asset protection employee for Target said the merchandise taken from the store was worth about $80. Jimenez was arrested Monday. His bond was set at $25,000 and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 11.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Pam Re: McAfee WHOA page Dear Webby, I went to a site after searching for it on Google, and McAfee hit me with the scary "WHOA, get back!" page. I phoned the company, -their phone number was in the Google results-, but they told me that since Google listed their page, obviously the problem was on my side, and that I should use AVG or Norton, and would not get that "false warning". Sounds to me the guy was an incompetent or clueless bozo. I wasily found an alternative place, that did not have a warning from McAfee. Is that sort of thing common? Pam Dear Pam Yes, unfortunately that is quite common. The same thing happened to me again a few days ago. I had heard that the owner of that site was rather clueless, so I didn't waste my time phoning, and simply went to another site, that sold the same stuff. That happens about every second month to me. The problem is not the server. The webhost normally doesn't do any malware check. The problem is the webmaster. If her or his computer is infected, then the work they produce is often also infected. The infection is not necessarily a virus, but often just some sneaky ads or links, that lead to malicious or unsafe sites. McAfee follows all the links and tests them. If one leads to an unsafe site, then you get the big, red "WHOA!" page. Just because AVG or Norton don't follow up the links on a site, or even bother checking where you are browsing to, that does not mean the sites they fail to warn you about, are safe. That is why I have always recommended to get McAfee. Have FUN!

We both had acid reflux. I had read something in a book about licorice oil being an aid. I went to the store and tried to find licorice oil with no luck. (I found later you can order it through a drug store.) Since I couldn't find it, I got to thinking that licorice tastes and is substituted with anise. I went looking for anise oil but couldn't find any. I finally went to the grocery store in the seasonings aisle. I found anise extract. It was fairly inexpensive so I bought a bottle. I took it home and followed the other instructions I remembered. "Taking it carefully, start with a small amount (up to two TEASPOONS, not tablespoons). I took up to two teaspoons the first time and had relief. I had to repeat a couple months later but haven't had any backup since. My son-in-law tried it and one dose fixed his problem. My daughter tried it but got the instructions mixed up and took two tablespoons. She has not had much relief. Proving once again that too much of a good thing isn't good. I shared this with my counselor, who tried it. She shared with her clients. They were cured too. I didn't hear of any failures from her.

"A frantic usher was very concerned that during the sermon an elderly man passed out in a pew and appeared to be dead. The usher could find no pulse and there was no noticeable breathing." "What was so unusual and demanding about this particular call?" the interviewer asked. "Well," the paramedic said, "we carried out seven guys before we found the one who was dead." ___________________________________________________
