Patrons at a 7-Eleven in Florida were treated to a lewd display by a 28-year-old woman who allegedly exposed and pleasured herself near the front doors of the convenience store. Police allege that Vanessa Lee Jones did “intentionally masturbate” while outside a 7-Eleven in St. Petersburg. Jones was arrested for lewd and lascivious exhibition, a felony, since she allegedly “continuously rubbed her vagina” in the presence of a minor. Jones was observed by the child’s uncle, who “video recorded the incident, which was shown to law enforcement.” Jones, who denied engaging in any illicit behavior, is locked up in the county jail on $10,000 bond. In recent months, Jones has been convicted of trespassing and possession of synthetic marijuana. (https://bit.ly/3iQktnz)

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
Why do we eat popcorn in movie theaters? One possible reason: During the Depression, popcorn at 5 or 10 cents a bag, was one of the few luxuries down-and-out families could afford. An Oklahoma banker who went broke when his bank failed bought a popcorn machine and started a business in a small store near a theater. After a couple years, his popcorn business was booming.
Pumpkin production is widely dispersed throughout the United States, with crop conditions varying greatly by region. All states produce some pumpkins, but about 40 percent of pumpkin acres are grown in five States: Illinois, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Texas, and California. Illinois harvests twice as many pumpkin acres as any of the other top states. The largest pumpkin ever grown was 2,624 pounds, by a Belgian horticulturist. The largest pumpkin ever grown in the U.S. weighed 2,528 pounds and was grown in New Hampshire.

A year-long government audit has led to an arrest in what investigators said was the theft of $1.3 million in printer toner from the public library in Austin, Texas. The accused thief, Randall Whited, worked for the library and was in charge of purchasing supplies with little oversight. Auditors with the city of Austin said that during their investigation they uncovered evidence Whited was selling the stolen toner online. He bought ten times more toner than the library needed, according to the audit released Monday. “It’s probably the biggest fraud investigation the city audit has had by about two folds,” said Brian Molloy, chief of investigations for Austin's Office of the City Auditor. Molloy believes the bulk of the stealing took place between 2015 and 2019, the year Whited was fired. (https://fxn.ws/34zdie7)
