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.

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.

“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.
