Dude runs over 72-year-old woman with shopping cart.
A 45-year-old man became enraged at a 72-year-old woman who was in front of him at the checkout line of the Super Stop & Shop and ran her over with his shopping cart.
James Curcio of Hillside Road, Poughquag, continued pushing the shopping cart out the door, despite not paying for the groceries, then beat a retreat in his car, police said. The 72-year-old woman was treated at Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt and released.
Sgt. Joseph Lutz said the woman was checking out about 9:15 p.m. and was processing her debit card when Curcio became impatient and bumped her with his cart. "She then said something to him. He got mad, hitting her twice with the cart and knocking her over before he fled," Lutz said. » Full article here

Family searches through feces of cash-eating dog
Debbie Hulleman's dog Pepper has been known to gnaw on lipstick, munch on shampoo bottles and chew on toothpaste. But Pepper got Hulleman into a real mess after gobbling nearly $750.
"This is probably the worst," Hulleman said Thursday, recalling how she poked through vomit and dog piles left in the yard to recover the cash. Pepper, an 8-year-old black Labrador-German shorthair, got into a purse belonging to her mother's friend and chewed the cash from an envelope.
The chore of sorting through dog feces netted about $400, the 50-year-old dog lover said. Between that and other bills that Pepper had either vomited or simply chewed on, the family recovered $647. The family swapped the soiled money for fresh currency at a bank. » Article here
