ROUND ONE

BONER CANDIDATE #1: FUEL DUMP

Dozens of people at three schools in the Los Angeles area were treated after a plane with mechanical issues dumped a load of jet fuel while returning to LAX for an emergency landing on Tuesday, officials said.  The incident was initially reported before noon at Park Avenue Elementary School in the 8000 block of Park Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.  A total of 26 people — 17 children and nine adults — complained of minor injuries after Delta Air Lines Flight 89 dropped fuel over the elementary school’s playground, officials said.  The patients were triaged on the campus, which is about 14 miles east of Los Angeles International Airport, but none were taken to a hospital.  Seventy county firefighters and paramedics responded to what was described as a multicasualty incident.  In addition to Park Avenue, other schools in the area were also impacted by the jet fuel dump, including Jordan High School in Florence-Firestone and 93rd St. Elementary School in Green Meadows, officials with the Los Angeles Fire Department later confirmed.  Sixteen people were treated for minor injuries between the two campuses, bringing the total of number between all three schools to 42.  None of the patients at the South L.A. schools were transported, an LAFD alert stated.  No evacuations were ordered, but the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Office of Environment Health and Safety was dispatched, according to LAUSD.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #2: GOD VS. RAINBOWS

A Christian school in Louisville expelled a student last week after her family said school officials discovered the girl had celebrated her birthday with a rainbow-themed cake.  Kimberly Alford told The Courier Journal that until Jan. 6, her 15-year-old daughter had been a freshman at Whitefield Academy, a private school at 7711 Fegenbush Lane that serves students in preschool through 12th grade.  That’s when Alford said she received an email from Whitefield Academy’s head of school, Bruce Jacobson, explaining how her daughter was being expelled “immediately due to a post on social media.”  Alford had recently posted a photo on her Facebook page showing her daughter celebrating her birthday in late December at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant.  In the photo, the girl is wearing a sweater featuring a rainbow design and sitting by a colorful, rainbow-themed cake.  Alford said someone shared the Facebook photo with Whitefield Academy officials.  In the email, Alford said Jacobson wrote that the picture “demonstrates a posture of morality and cultural acceptance contrary to that of Whitefield Academy’s beliefs” and follows two years of “lifestyle violations.”   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #3: DEPORT ‘EM

A contested Utah license plate that reads “DEPORTM” has remained in use despite at least three previous complaints to state officials in recent years, according to those who objected.  The Utah Tax Commission, which oversees the state Division of Motor Vehicles, last week placed the vanity plate under review after an image of the plate circulated on social media, catching the attention of some state lawmakers.  State officials have said they were “surprised” the plate was approved and were unaware of the previous complaints because of personnel changes since the first objections were filed in 2016.  But a Stansbury Park woman on Tuesday told The Salt Lake Tribune she complained just a few weeks ago, after spotting the license plate in Tooele.  And a commission spokeswoman confirmed the employee who corresponded in 2016 with one of the people who complained remains in the same role at the DMV today.  Mary Lou Beckwith said she was driving near Walmart in Tooele when she noticed the license plate on a red Honda Pilot in November or December.  “I was horrified,” Beckwith said.  “It was terrible.  We’ve got so much stuff going on about immigration right now.  I was shaking when I got home.”  Beckwith said she called the DMV to complain about the plate.  “The lady I talked to, she was very concerned,” Beckwith said.  “She said, ‘Oh, yes. I can’t do anything about it, but I can send it upstairs.’  “I’m kind of disappointed they didn’t refer my report because I just, you know — I was dumbfounded.”   Read More

ROUND TWO

BONER CANDIDATE #1: THANKS FOR FINDING MY BADGE AND GUN

A family is glad no one was hurt after their child found a loaded gun at a California Airbnb.  The gun belonged to a sheriff’s deputy who has since been put on leave, according to KTVU.  Jon Segarra said his 9-year-old son Josh and three other children found the gun in a bedroom drawer after they arrived at the home.  “That was just in a drawer in that room,” said Segarra.  “It wasn’t hard to find.  It wasn’t hidden.  It wasn’t stashed under a bed or anything.  It was in a drawer right there.”    Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #2: DEER KILLER

Law enforcement in two southern Utah counties are investigating threats towards a conservation officer who shot a domesticated deer last week.  The controversial action happened on a property in Antimony, Garfield County on Wednesday, and now the officer may be at risk.  The doe named Sadee was shot between the eyes by a Division of Wildlife Resources conservation officer.  He’s also accused of trespassing onto private property to do it.  Local law enforcement in Garfield and Iron Counties got involved after seeing a death threat online saying someone wanted to put a bullet in the officer after he put a bullet in a domesticated deer.  “Don’t make violent threats against any police officer.  We take that very seriously,” Garfield County Sheriff Danny Perkins said.  “He’s being checked on quite regularly, as I understand.  Even then, we will make sure he’s okay,” Sheriff Perkins said.  FOX 13 found threats include the officer “needs to be taught a lesson,” “let’s take street justice after this guy and deal with him without the law involved,” and “let’s shoot the officer.”   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #3: I NEVER USED THAT HAND TO TOUCH FOOD!

This will definitely ruin your appetite.  A man visited the drive-thru at a McDonald’s in Pittsburgh, Pa., when he says he saw an employee standing with his hand stuck down his pants.  While he didn’t appear to be wearing a uniform, he was standing in the kitchen at the time.  “I was with my girlfriend and we were getting food for my daughter,” John Holieb explained to Fox News.  “My girlfriend made a comment about how she can’t believe no one is wearing uniforms.  Then she notices the guy with both hands down his pants.  I looked and said, ‘WTF. This is crazy.’  There was a few of them just standing there talking.  Then I reached for my phone and took two pictures.”  He also explained that after the incident, a woman saying she was the general manager sent him a message.  He shared a screenshot of the message, which said, “Good morning.  My name is Kara.  I am the [general manager] of the restaurant from your post.  I just wanted to let you know that I had some employees send me your post this morning and wanted to let you know that the matter has been corrected immediately.  I work hard to keep food safety as my top priority and I continue to do so.  Please know that the owner and I have taken action.”   Read More
