Everyone’s been told that time is money, but it seems that 18-year-old Evan Kelso actually listened.
Kelso, an Indiana high school senior, woke up one day with an entrepreneurial bee in his bonnet and decided to capitalize on his state’s first foray into the wild world of daylight-saving time in 30 years.
He’ll change all the clocks in your house — even the scary VCR ones — for $10.
Kelso says he and his dad are always trying to think of ways to rake in some extra loot, so it seemed only natural to turn the dreaded “spring forward” into a cash cow.
“I just kind of sat there and thought, ‘We’ve got to capitalize on this,’” Kelso said.
But potential customers needn’t worry about not getting their money’s worth — buying time from Kelso is a steal for the technologically challenged.
He says his offer includes changing the time on your microwaves, ovens, answering machines, cars, computers, watches and most anything else that ticks or clicks.
For an extra buck, he’ll even install new batteries.
FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) — The record-setting consumer of Big Mac sandwiches couldn't stump a television panel on the new "I've Got A Secret" show, but Don Gorske says he got a surprise on his trip to the West Coast for the taping.
Thanks to his cameo appearance in the 2004 documentary film, "Super Size Me," which was highly critical of fast-food culture, he ran into autograph-seekers at the airport in Los Angeles, and teens used their camera phones to take his picture.
"I couldn't believe how many people recognized me," he said.
The Fond du Lac man earned a spot in Guinness World Records in March 2003 when the number of McDonald's Big Mac sandwiches he had eaten hit 19,000. He kept records showing he ate one or two every day since 1972.
His record is still growing. When interviewed by The Reporter of Fond du Lac about his trip, he downed No. 21,249.
The 6-foot Gorske has kept his weight at 180 pounds despite his diet.
The episode of "I've Got A Secret," a revival of a classic game show from the 1950s and 1960s, is expected to air in early May on the Game Show Network.
At Monday's taping, Gorske said each of four panelists had 40 seconds to try to uncover his secret, and the final panelist hit the target with a question about fast food, followed by one with the magic word — McDonald's.
"Then the crowd started to cheer, and he guessed it in time," Gorske said.
He returned home Tuesday $1,000 richer.
BELLEVUE, Ky. (AP) — A Detroit man is in custody after a witness saw him drop a large wad of cash in the street and called police.
Police say Frankie Leon Morrison, 39, faces federal bank robbery charges and fleeing police after stealing cash at gunpoint from Fifth Third Bank in this northern Kentucky suburb of Cincinnati.
As police hurried to the bank, delivery man Kevin NiBlack watched a jaywalker cross the street in front of the bank.
"The wad of money I saw dropped in the street was large enough to choke a mule," NiBlack told The Enquirer of Cincinnati.
So NiBlack flagged down the next police officer he saw and pointed to where he saw the man run. Police officers chased the suspect and eventually forced him to surrender.
Bellevue Police Chief William Cole praised NiBlack for helping nab Morrison.
"I just did what I thought was right," said NiBlack, of Norwood, Ohio.
"I work — sometimes seven days a week — trying to make an honest living like every man pursuing the American dream, and someone had the audacity to rob a bank in front of me," he said.
NEWPORT, Ky. (AP) — "Wandering Wanda" the wild turkey just doesn't want to get caught. The bird is still on the loose within city limits in this northern Kentucky suburb of Cincinnati despite efforts by net-wielding residents and city officials.
Newport code enforcement officials have been trying to catch Wandering Wanda — a name PNC Bank workers gave the bird — for about two months.
"We are going to continue to try and pursue it and try and keep the public from getting involved," code enforcement director Brian Steffen said.
Steffen said the city is discouraging residents from helping with the turkey chase, especially after two men went after Wanda with a net in a parking lot and almost caused an accident.
PNC Bank employee Marintha Knight said someone else this week tried unsuccessfully to catch the turkey with a blanket.
"He eventually had enough and left," Knight said.
And Wanda might not be the only turkey in Newport. Newport Plaza worker Bethany Walker said two wild turkeys blocking a doorway made her late for work this week — she waited 20 minutes for them to leave instead of trying to scare them away.
"Every time I walked to the door, they would start doing a turkey noise," Walker told The Cincinnati Enquirer. "I called my district manager to say I was late to clock in because of wild turkeys."
