TURKEY FRYER MISHAP

 

An unattended turkey fryer is being blamed for a fire that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a home in Palm Bay.

 

The fryer was left in a shed next to a home on Palmdale Circle. No one was hurt, but everything inside that shed was destroyed.

 

The damage was estimated at $15,000.

 

Also, a Melbourne family got some help from firefighters after a fire ruined their Thanksgiving.

 

Spilled grease started the fire yesterday at an apartment on Thrush Drive.

 

The people inside were able to put out the fire with an extinguisher but after firefighters saw the family's food was ruined, they donated an extra turkey they had.

 

Spanish Woman Claims She Now Owns Sun

 

 (AFP) - After billions of years the Sun finally has an owner -- a woman from Spain's soggy region of Galicia said Friday she had registered the star at a local notary public as being her property.

 

Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in September after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our solar system.

 

There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.

 

"There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first."

 

The document issued by the notary public declares Duran to be the "owner of the Sun, a star of spectral type G2, located in the centre of the solar system, located at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometers."

 

Duran, who lives in the town of Salvaterra do Mino, said she now wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the nation's pension fund.

 

She would dedicate another 10 percent to research, another 10 percent to ending world hunger -- and would keep the remaining 10 percent herself.

 

"It is time to start doing things the right way, if there is an idea for how to generate income and improve the economy and people's wellbeing, why not do it?" she asked.

 

Man tries to steal underground fence, steam mop and beer

 

FORT WALTON BEACH — A man who tried to walk out of Walmart with an underground fence, beer and a steam mop was arrested.

 

Loss prevention officers at the store started watching Brent Finchum, 50, after he went to the pet section of the store and placed the underground fence into his shopping cart, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s report.

 

After getting the fencing, he put it into an empty Walmart bag that had been sitting in the bottom of the cart previously.

 

The man then went to the grocery section and picked up a case of Bud Light beer and made his way out of the store without paying.

 

When he was stopped by the loss prevention officer, Finchum had a Shark steam mop, a window fan, a Shark garmet steamer and a bottle of motor oil in addition to the fence and beer.

 

He was charged with felony larceny.

 

In total, the items were worth $363.71.
