Boner Candidate #1: A FOOT THROUGH THE CEILING… THAT’S WHAT ALERTED THE EMPLOYEES

A man who had been living in the rafters of Raley’s in Fernley was arrested on Sept. 30 after employees noticed he had fallen through the ceiling, according to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office. Matthew Hammar, 35, was arrested and charged with burglary and obstructing a police officer after night shift employees at the grocery store found him while the store was closed. “The day we apprehended this person, the reason they noticed him was because when he made it through the roof of the building and into the ceiling area of the grocery store, his foot went through the ceiling,” said Johnny Smith, captain of patrol for the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office. “…He took a bad step and one of his feet went through the ceiling, exposing his foot to where people could see it and that’s what alerted the employees.” Investigators discovered that Hammar had been using an exterior ladder outside of the building to climb up onto the roof and then down into the rafters of the store for at least a week before being found. Smith also confirmed that Hammar had been stealing from the deli at the store and had set up a makeshift living area for himself.

Boner Candidate #2: NASTINESS IN AUTUMN RIDGE

SANDY, Utah (ABC4 News) – A Sandy neighborhood is going viral for its support of the LGBTQ Community. It’s after several residents who live in the Autumn Ridge Drive community received an anonymous letter asking them to rethink flying Pride flags. “Statistically, we knew there had to be at least one LGBTQ teen in our neighborhood,” said Kristy Donahoo, an Autumn Ridge Drive resident. “Utah’s our home, and to have a high suicide rate among teens. I know there was a child in my son’s high school that committed suicide, and it’s tough.” The Donahoos, Kristy and her husband Willy, spearheaded a movement in 2019 to make their neighborhood a place of inclusion no matter a person’s background, sexual orientation or who they love. This year they continued their efforts. “For the week before National Coming Out Day, let’s celebrate Pride Week and put flags up,” said Mr. Donahoo. So in support of October 11th, 80 flags, 20 more than last year and 55 love signs went up. A matter of days later, an anonymous letter found its way to mailboxes throughout the neighborhood. The secret sender asking supporters if flying Pride flags was “consistent” with the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In an excerpt of the letter the sender goes on writing: “Ask yourself, do I demonstrate the values of the church and do I honor the covenants that I made to follow the teachings of the church and Christ? Take notice of the ward members who did not agree to have flags placed in their yards, including our Bishop and his Counselors who are setting the example that we all should follow.”
