The father of a 5 year old boy was charged $24 after his son missed a birthday party he had previously confirmed for in order to spend time with his grandparents.
An invoiced given to the boy by a teacher via the parent of the birthday boy also names the Plymouth Ski And Snowboard Centre on the invoice. The Center has responded to this on their Facebook page by stating, “As some of you may have already seen, the following article was published yesterday. We would like all our customers to know that this invoice has nothing to do with Plymouth Ski and Snowboard Centre. No invoices are ever sent out from the centre to private individuals. This is a disagreement between the two parents involved and the fact that the centre has been named on the invoice is fraudulent.”

A 27-year-old Oregon man survived being crushed between two big rigs in a nightmare pile-up on an icy freeway Saturday morning.
His Chevy Silverado was completely wrecked after the two semi-trucks smashed into each other- with him in the middle. The 50-vehicle pile-up left 18-wheelers sprawled across the icy freeway.
The lucky guy says he swerved to avoid a jack-knifed truck - only to get crushed by another out of control big rig. The man managed to cut himself free of his seatbelt, and move the steering column from his leg.
He then shouted for help – and was rescued by the driver who drove the second truck in the crash.
