McDonald's Handing Out Healthy Treats On Halloween

Filed under: Fast FoodFamily

McDonald's healthy halloween treats

In an effort to distract customers from their menu's heavy calorie count, McDonald's locations in Southern California are handing out a free bag of apple slices to costumed kids under 12.

California parents looking to get their kids a healthy snack on Halloween can take their young ones to McDonald’s in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday.

Michael Mangione Jr., president of the McDonald’s Operators’ Association of Southern California, explained the promotion aims to highlight the new-and-improved Happy Meal offerings, saying:

“We’re excited to offer this nutritious treat for children this Halloween season. This giveaway is another example of our commitment to children’s well being and part of our broader effort to educate children and their parents on the benefits of fruits and vegetables.”

We're not sure if kids will be thrilled to get a bag of apples on Halloween (or anything other than candy, for that matter), but we're happy to hear that McDonald's is trying to introduce kids to healthier food.

Oh uh, Donald! Having some money troubles like Val???

Check out the photos (above, and below) of Donald Trump's Southern California Mansion, which he sold for $5 million LESS than the original asking price!!!

Acccording to Donald, he sold the 11,000 sq ft mansion for $7.15 million because he wasn't spending very much time there, and when he IS in SoCal, he prefers to stay at his property in Beverly Hills.

SoCal Grocery Store Union May Go On Strike Monday!

Filed under: Food

Ralphs

Prepare to start bagging your own food at the grocery store next week. Employees of El Lay's favorite grocery store chains have been cleared by union officials to go on strike Monday.

Upset over low wages and corporate unwillingness to contribute more to rising health care costs, the United Food and Commercial Workers union issued a 72-hour notice on Thursday to cancel their contract extension with Ralphs, Vons, and Albertsons.

UFCW union leaders said in a statement:

“We’re ready to fight to preserve good jobs. We understand this is a tough economy, but we’re willing to stand up for workers everywhere being taken advantage of by profitable corporations."

Although they've been given permission to strike and the picket signs are made, that doesn't mean the employees will ACTUALLY go on strike. Vons said in a statement:

"The notice does not mean a strike is imminent or that a strike will necessarily occur at any point. The notice simply allows the union the ability to call a strike if they choose to do so. Vons and the other employers intend to remain focused on the negotiation process and urge the unions to do so the same."

We appreciate our friendly neighborhood grocery store employees! Especially the workers that offer to help take our groceries to our car. Even though we never accept, it's always appreciated!

Good luck in the negotiations UFCW 770!

Former NBA Player Turns Himself In Arrested For Murder Charges

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadBasketball

Former NBA player Javaris Crittenton, who was suspended from the Washington Wizards after bringing a firearm into the locker room, has been arrested after being charged with murder.

Authorities in Atlanta, Georgia believe Crittenton is responsible for the August 19th murder of a 22-year-old woman who was shot as she was walking on the street in the city.

The former basketball star, who played for Georgia Tech in college, had fled to Los Angeles with a one-way ticket, but agreed to turn himself in after being charged.

Before he could turn himself in, however, FBI apprehended him at John Wayne Airport in Southern California on Monday night.

At least they got him one way or the other.

Check out the video above for more details surrounding the case against Crittenton.
