10-year-old boy gets ticket for not wearing seat belt properly

http://www.statesman.com

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A "scared" 10-year-old Central Texas boy who stuck his head out the passenger's seat window to get some fresh air says he was ticketed by police for improper seat belt usage after it slipped off.

Marshall May, a fourth-grader at Jim Plain Elementary School in Leander, just north of Austin, was on his way home in a minivan when he stuck his head out the window and his seat belt slipped, he said.

A Leander police officer pulled over the van that Marshall's 19-year-old aunt, Ashley Arredondo, was driving and gave the boy a ticket after a brief discussion Tuesday.

http://raystrash.com

The residents of Carmel, Indiana could be forced to no longer have their private refuse company remove their waste. And if history has a way of repeating itself, it will more than likely pass with the baffoons they have sitting at the helm. The 'illustrious' city council wants to impose an Ordinance that allows the City to select a trash removal company and tack on the fee on the sewer/water bill of the residents. Of course, the fee has yet to be determined. This is being heard at the June 6 and June 20 City Council meetings.

Judge Orders Former San Francisco Admin Terry Childs To Pay $1.5M

http://yro.slashdot.org

A judge Tuesday ordered a former city worker who locked San Francisco out of its main computer network for 12 days in 2008 to pay nearly $1.5 million in restitution, prosecutors said.'
