Murrysville woman takes Walgreens to court for taxing toilet tissue

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – There are very few things we all need, and toilet paper is one of them. But did you ever look at your store receipt after buying it?  One Murrysville woman did and doesn’t like what she saw.

“It’s something that we all use. We all need to buy, and I have no idea why this is continuing to occur,” said consumer advocate Mary Bach. She’s got the time, the interest and the receipts.

“That’s correct. I do have the receipts,” she said.

She sent us her receipts from the Walgreens in Murrysville that show sales tax added to a purchase of toilet tissue.

Bach took Walgreens to court and the magistrate judge in Export sided with her. She says the fix would “take a nanosecond,” but it didn’t happen yet. She just filed a complaint against the Walgreens in Penn Hills for the same issue, planning to argue in front of the magistrate judge there in March.

Bach tells KDKA’s Meghan Schiller that people can visit the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue’s website for the full list of items not subject to sales tax in Pennsylvania.

US farm group calls for probe of high egg prices

A farm group is calling on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to examine the rise for signs of price gouging from top egg companies.

The latest concern is eggs, the price of which was up 138% in December from a year prior, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

 

Various groups from regulators to farmers and industry officials have often argued in recent years about the power of top agriculture firms to set prices and drive up what consumers pay for groceries.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) pointed to a record outbreak of avian flu as a reason for the high prices.

Nearly 58 million chickens and turkeys have been killed by avian flu or to control the spread of the virus since the beginning of 2022, mostly in March and April, according to the USDA.

U.S. egg production was about 5% lower in October compared to last year, and egg inventories were down 29% in December compared to the beginning of the year, a significant drop, but one that may not explain record-high prices, said Basel Musharbash, an attorney with Farm Action.

Standoff in Torrance as police find van linked to Lunar New Year mass shooting

Police have located a white van they believe is connected to the gunman who opened fire at a ballroom dance studio in Monterey Park on Saturday night, killing 10 people and injuring 10 others.

Multiple police cars surrounded the vehicle in Torrance on Sunday morning and shots were fired, law enforcement sources told The Times. It was not known who was in the vehicle or whether there were any injuries.

The shooting occurred on Lunar New Year’s Eve about seven miles east of downtown Los Angeles. L.A. County Sheriff Robert Luna said it was too early to tell whether the festival was connected to the shooting.

A law enforcement source briefed on the matter said the gunman used a high-powered assault rifle at close range. Some witnesses described a white cargo van, which Luna said should be considered “a van of interest.”

Six families escape fire at Zelienople townhouse complex

Fire damaged several townhomes in Zelienople overnight Thursday after a car caught fire in the driveway, spreading to the front of one of the homes.

Neighbors who live on Timberbrook Court said they heard a loud boom right around midnight, looked outside, and saw flames.

“My brother came in my room screaming, ‘Madi. There’s a fire. We gotta go!’ We grabbed my dog and ran outside,” said Madi Parrotto.

Madi and her brother, Nick, could only watch as flames tore through the roofs of their neighbors’ homes, with six families total having to rush out of their homes.

“Everyone was just panicking. Everyone was knocking on each other’s doors, trying to get everyone out. But the fire was just crazy. I’ve never seen anything like it,” Parrotto said.

Melissa Smith was at work and learned of the fire through her doorbell camera system.

“It’s unbelievable that a car could do that and how fast it caused these units to go up,” Smith said.

Chief Scott Garing of the Harmony Fire Department said the front of the second unit, where the car was parked, sustained the most damage, but none of the six units were a total loss. Garing said there’s a reason for that.

“It started to spread through the roof and common walls. The firewalls in the attic are what stopped it from spreading,” Garing said.

Smith, who had to deliver the news to her next-door neighbor who is out of town, said her home only sustained smoke damage and she is thankful her kids and neighbors got out safely.

“I’m good, yeah. I’m very lucky,” Smith said.

No injuries were reported. Crews at the scene told us the fire remains under investigation.
