Woman who stole ketchup bottles from NJ restaurant wracked with guilt; returns 2 new bottles to owner

A customer who claims to have stolen a bottle of ketchup from a New Jersey restaurant was so distraught with guilt that the thief bought two new bottles — and delivered them with a handwritten apology note.

Described by himself/herself only as “an awful person,” the customer dropped off the Heinz bottles with a Walmart receipt and a note, which explained how he/she took the condiments from Perkins Restaurant & Bakery in Forked River, a city roughly 17 miles southwest of Seaside Heights.

“A few weeks ago, I had taken one of your ketchup bottles off the table because for some reason I thought it’d be ‘risky,'” the customer wrote in the note, a photo of which was posted to a town Facebook group by restaurant owner Maria DeLeo. “I am as square as they come and this is the worst thing I’ve done.”

The customer then claimed to have gotten into a car accident only hours later, “and since then my karma, luck, and life have been s—.”

“I hope returning two news bottles will restore some [luck] for me, and I can stop carrying around this guilt,” the note read. “Again, I’m really sorry if I inconvenienced you the same way my life has been inconveniencing me. I’m sorry. From, an awful person.”

The restaurant’s manager, Charlene Reebe, told the New York Post she spotted the note on July 31 while closing the store.

“There was just a normal, little gray Walmart bag on the side of a can, on the ground, and I remember thinking to myself, ‘Why didn’t someone just put it in the can?'” Reebe said, explaining that she was “very surprised.”

Reebe said no one realized a ketchup bottle was taken from the restaurant, and noted that the Heinz bottles the thief took were 12 ounces larger than Perkins even puts on its tables.

The restaurant’s owner said she forgives the customer, and that she’d “hire her in a second.”

“Because if you do something like that, you’re not an awful person,” DeLeo told the Post. “You’re an honest person.’’

Florida man allegedly urinates into ice machine at nightclub

A Florida man was arrested on Saturday after allegedly relieving himself in a nightclub’s ice machine, investigators said.

Michael Williams, 28, was at 260 First, a nightclub in St. Petersburg, around 2:30 a.m. when police spotted him “urinating inside the ice chest used to distribute ice throughout,” according to court documents obtained by The Smoking Gun.

When police arrived, Williams was arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct — in addition to misdemeanor possession after they found a bag of marijuana during a pat-down.

Online records from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office indicate Williams was released from jail after posting bond.

Kerr speaks on Warriors’ offseason, hope for future

Golden State coach Steve Kerr knows that a new era of Warriors basketball is about to begin.

He just doesn’t know what that means yet.

It has been a rough summer for Kerr, whose roster is wildly different following the offseason departures of Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, DeMarcus Cousins and Shaun Livingston — all on the heels of the team losing the NBA Finals to Toronto and Klay Thompson tearing an ACL in the last game of this past season. He spoke of the summer of tumult Monday, when USA Basketball opened its World Cup training camp.

“This summer was painful in many ways, losing the guys that we did,” said Kerr, a USA Basketball assistant this summer under coach Gregg Popovich. “But reassuring, in the sense that we brought back some key guys who are going to help us kind of get to that next era, whatever that looks like.”

The Warriors kept Thompson, to no surprise, after a five-year, $190 million contract got finalized quickly in free agency. Golden State also reached an agreement over the weekend to retain Draymond Green on a four-year, $100 million extension that kicks in for the 2020-21 season — a deal that is a bargain to the Warriors, especially since Green could have commanded much more had he waited until next summer.

Kerr said locking Green into a new deal has been a talking point between he and Warriors general manager Bob Myers for a long time. He wasn’t surprised that Green took the deal now instead of waiting a year for a more lucrative one.

“I think every player sort of faces these moments where they’ve got to decide, ‘Am I going to mitigate risk and sign something now or play it out?’ That’s up to them,” Kerr said. “Obviously, everyone goes about it differently. But it didn’t surprise me that Draymond signed. He wanted to be here. He’s talked about it all along.”

So Green, Thompson and Stephen Curry remain from the core of Golden State’s three titles in the last five years. Durant, Iguodala and Livingston are key championship-team parts who are gone, and the newest Warriors standout should be D’Angelo Russell — brought in from Brooklyn, the team that now employs Durant.

Kerr said he can’t wait to coach Russell, who will initially be asked to fill part of the scoring void that will be created when Thompson can’t play until likely the latter portion of this coming season while he rehabs from the ACL surgery.

“He’s a great young talent and I think he’s going to fit right in with our group,” Kerr said. “We’re going to need him desperately. Without Klay, especially, we’ll need D’Angelo’s scoring and it’s up to us as a staff to figure out how best to use him to shake the team, shake the offense. And we’ll figure it out.”

The other change Golden State is dealing with — besides a move from Oakland to San Francisco — will be on the expectation front.

No longer are the Warriors the overwhelming preseason favorites to win the NBA title. Some oddsmakers say Golden State is no better than the fifth-best bet just to win the West behind the Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz.

“I’d rather be the favorite again, to be honest with you,” Kerr said. “But I like coaching. Every year’s a little different. This will be a lot different. But I’m excited to coach the guys who are coming back and the many young, new players that we’ve got. It’s a new challenge and I’m excited for it.”

Trump plans trip to El Paso and Dems urge him to stay away; NY Times changes Trump headline after backlash

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your Tuesday …

Trump plans trip to El Paso shooting site as Dems urge him to stay away
President Trump is planning to visit El Paso, Texas on Wednesday, the city’s mayor says, as some Democrats continue to blame the president for the mass shooting there and have urged him to stay away. News of Trump’s planned appearance teed up a potentially bitter national political moment just four days after suspected gunman Patrick Crusius, 21, allegedly opened fire at a Walmart and killed 22 people while injuring more than two dozen others. El Paso, Texas Mayor Dee Margo said he is “already getting the emails and the phone calls” from individuals “with lots of time on their hands,” but that his focus remains on his community, not politics.

Several Democrats have accused Trump of planting the seeds of hate with racist, anti-immigration rhetoric that led to two mass shootings that left 31 dead in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Other critics accused Democrats of politicizing two tragedies by blaming Trump. The White House has not confirmed Trump’s schedule, or whether he will also visit Dayton, Ohio, where a gunman killed nine people over the weekend. But the Federal Aviation Administration has advised pilots of a presidential visit Wednesday to both El Paso and Dayton.

Trump, for his part, on Monday called for reforms at the intersection of mental health and gun laws — including so-called “red flag laws” to take guns from those deemed a public risk. In unequivocal terms, he also condemned white supremacy, responding to reports that the shooter in El Paso wrote a racist manifesto ahead of the violence. The manifesto specifically said that Trump’s rhetoric was not to blame for the shooting, and said the shooter’s views “predate” Trump’s presidential campaign.

Wall Street looks to bounce back as US-China trade war escalates dramatically
The Treasury Department on Monday officially declared China  a currency manipulator, after the yuan fell to a more than 10-year low against the U.S. dollar. Secretary Steven Mnuchin, with the support of President Trump, determined that China is in fact unfairly influencing its currency – allegations that had been made by the president multiple times throughout the day. The yuan’s movement on Monday combined with the administration’s announcement that it plans to impose 10 percent tariffs on the remaining $300 billion worth of Chinese goods coming into the U.S. next month, sent markets spiraling, leading to their worst day of 2019. U.S. stocks went into freefall on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average down 900 points at its low before curbing some of those losses, ending the session 767 points lower.

Wall Street will look to recover Tuesday but a rocky road may lie ahead.  The yuan showed signs of stabilizing early Tuesday as futures pointed to a modestly lower open for American equities, with E-Mini S&P 500 futures down 0.3 percent.

China vows response if US deploys missiles in region, arms race feared
A top Chinese military official on Tuesday said Beijing would “not stand idly by” if the U.S. goes forward with deploying intermediate-range missiles in the Indo-Pacific region, raising new fears an arms race. Last weekend, Mark Esper, the U.S. defense secretary, said that he “would like to” place these missiles in Asia, while in Sydney. Australia’s defense minister has said that country will not be a base for the missiles. It was not clear when these missiles would be put into place, but one senior official from the U.S. told Reuters that it would be years away. Esper made the comments after the U.S. withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces arms control treaty with Russia last Friday.

California sued over law blocking Trump from ballot over tax returns
Four voters in California, along with the conservative transparency group Judicial Watch, announced Monday they have filed a federal lawsuit against the left-wing state, alleging its new law aimed at strong-arming President Trump into releasing his income tax returns is patently unconstitutional. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the law known as the “Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act” last week. Its provisions would require Trump and other presidential primary candidates to file their tax returns for the most recent five years to the California secretary of state by November 26 or be excluded from the March 3, 2020 presidential primary ballot. The law does not apply to the general election, so Trump would still appear on the November 2020 California presidential ballot if he secured the national Republican Party nomination.

New York Times changes Trump headline after Dems complain
A New York Times headline about President Trump’s remarks on the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton drew condemnation online– including some Democratic presidential candidates– and was subsequently changed online late Monday. The newspaper summarized Trump’s comments, in which he denounced hate and white supremacy, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism” on the front page of its first edition.A photograph of Tuesday’s first edition was tweeted out by journalist Nate Silver Monday night and was quickly slammed by critics who accused The Gray Lady of inaccurately representing Trump’s comments.

Prominent Democrats in Washington also took aim at the Times, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions,” the freshman congresswoman tweeted. Presidential candidates, many of whom blamed Trump’s rhetoric for the El Paso, Texas, shooting that left at least 22 dead, also decried the headline. New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted, “That’s not what happened.”

Vegetarians beware: Burger King’s Impossible Whopper comes with an asterisk

Vegetarians and vegans may have a slight problem ordering Burger King’s new Impossible Whoppers.

Despite being made with a plant-based Impossible Foods patty, Burger King’s Impossible Whoppers, which hit nationwide menus on Thursday, will reportedly be cooked in the same broiler as the chain’s beef and chicken offerings unless a customer requests otherwise.

Representatives for Burger King have since confirmed the methods that will be used to prepare the patties. They also pointed out that this information is already stated on the Burger King website, in a footnote referenced by an asterisk on the product’s official page.

Guests can, however, ask for the patties to be prepared in the oven, according to the representatives, but the product still cannot be labeled vegan as Burger King restaurants “have an open kitchen environment.”

Burger King isn’t the only burger joint that can’t exactly call its new plant-based offerings “vegan” or even vegetarian: The A&W restaurants currently offering Beyond Meat patties are cooking them on the same grill as the beef burgers, as noted by Ad Age, and confirmed on the chain’s website.

Burger King announced the nationwide rollout of Impossible Whoppers last week, after successful tests in select markets in April. The Whoppers, which will be available at U.S. restaurants as of Aug. 8, are being marketed toward “both current guests who are already big fans of the WHOPPER® sandwich, as well as new guests who are excited about this new option,” according to Chris Finazzo, the president of Burger King North America.

Valerie Harper’s daughter Cristina Cacciotti speaks out on ‘Rhoda’ star’s health battle

Valerie Harper’s daughter, Cristina Cacciotti, still has vivid memories of the “Rhoda” actress listening to Little Richard and the Beach Boys while tidying up her house as she played the most important role of her life — that of mom.

“A lot of times, we’d be dancing more than working,” the 36-year-old actress recently told Closer Weekly about growing up with the now-79-year-old star. “My mom was just a person filled with joy.”

VALERIE HARPER’S HUSBAND SPEAKS OUT

Cacciotti revealed in the magazine’s latest issue that she’s now determined to be by her mother’s side no matter what. In July, her father Tony Cacciotti announced that doctors have recommended he put the “Mary Tyler Moore” icon, who has been battling cancer, in hospice care.

“I have been told by doctors to put Val in Hospice care and I can’t [because of our 40 years of shared commitment to each other] and I won’t because of the amazing good deeds she has graced us with while she’s been here on earth,” Cacciotti wrote on Facebook.

“We will continue going forward as long as the powers above allow us, I will do my very best in making Val as comfortable as possible,” he continued. “There are two special ANGELS on this planet masquerading as humans who live and work together, that has made it possible to have all of Val’s needs taken care of.”

Tony, who has been married to Harper since 1987, went on to say: “For those of you who have been in this position, you will totally understand that ‘it’s hard letting go.’ So as long as I’m able and capable, I’ll be where I belong right beside her.”

“Many, many thanks for your outpouring of kindness and support,” he concluded.

According to Closer Weekly, Cacciotti admitted her father has been incredibly grief-stricken by Harper’s health battle.

“My mom is the center of his world — from personal to professional,” she explained. “She is his everything… She used to joke that [my dad] should court one of the older ladies at the gym. She didn’t want him to suffer or to be alone.”

And it’s been heartbreaking for Cacciotti too. She recalled receiving a phone call from Harper in February of this year while she was at the hospital. The outlet shared talking was difficult for Harper because she has aphasia, an impairment of the brain’s language function.

“She was trying to communicate, but it was hard,” said a tearful Cacciotti. “She’s my mom and she’s always been my best friend.”

“She said that we should be focused on our lives here and making the best out of any situation,” continued Cacciotti. “She believed that when you pass on you only go somewhere else.”

Harper, who beat lung cancer in 2009, was diagnosed again with a form of brain cancer called leptomeningeal carcinomatosis in 2013. The disease is incurable and she was told at the time she would only have months to live. However, thanks to the medical care she’s been given, the star is still fighting. Unfortunately, the fight comes at a great financial cost.

In July, Harper’s family set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for the rising cost of her battle with the disease. Cacciotti created the page in order to help fund the costs that aren’t covered by insurance.

VALERIE HARPER SAYS SHE HAS TERMINAL BRAIN CANCER

Harper is best known for playing Rhoda Morgenstern on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” in the 1970s. Her fan-beloved character earned her own spinoff, “Rhoda,” that aired from 1974 to 1978. She would later star in the 1980s sitcom “Valerie” (later titled “Valerie’s Family” and “The Hogan Family”). In addition, she appeared in more than a dozen feature films and won four Emmy Awards.

Back in 2017, Harper told Fox News she’s grateful to have someone like Tony by her side as she fights her illness.

“[This is about] facing a disease that really doesn’t have a good diagnosis,” said Harper at the time. “I happen to have a fabulous caregiver who is my husband, Tony Cacciotti. He’s been taking care of everything. Everything in my life. It’s just the most wonderful thing.”

“In fact, my husband doesn’t let me go anywhere alone. He drives me everywhere. He’s incredible,” she said.

“[The doctor] said, ‘You know, I hate to tell you this, but this disease that you now have — it’s not the brain. It’s the lining of the brain,’” explained Harper. “‘This is very difficult. There’s no cure. We don’t have a pill. We don’t have anything that works really well. We can’t get the medication to hit what you need to hit.’”

At the time, People magazine reported Harper was undergoing chemotherapy to slow down the disease’s progression. She credited a loving support system, along with Cedar-Sinai Medical Center, and even trying acupuncture, with helping her enjoy life. Harper was also eager about immunotherapy, which boosts the body’s natural defenses to fight cancer.

“People are saying, ‘She’s on her way to death and quickly,’” said Harper. “Now it’s five years instead of three months… And the thing is, everyone is going to die in one way or another. So why don’t you fight it? I’m going to fight this. I’m going to see a way.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday over a picture of men – wearing “team Mitch” T-shirts – appeared “groping and choking” a cardboard cutout of her.

The New York Democrat took to Twitter to slam the picture after it surfaced on social media. There’s no additional information about when the picture taken or whether or not the men are affiliated with McConnell’s campaign.

MITCH MCCONNELL CAMPAIGN CRITICIZED FOR PHOTOS OF TOMBSTONES WITH DEM NAMES

“Hey @senatemajldr – these young men look like they work for you,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Just wanted to clarify: are you paying for young men to practice groping & choking members of Congress w/ your payroll,” she asked, “or is this just the standard culture of #TeamMitch?”

The photograph was first surfaced by a Twitter user named @emrazz and the initial caption read, “Break me off a piece of that.”

The freshman congresswoman has pressured McConnell for declining to bring a Senate vote on a gun control bill in the wake of shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

MCCONNELL WILLING TO CONSIDER ‘BIPARTISAN’ GUN VIOLENCE SOLUTIONS, OPPOSES ‘INFRINGING’ ON RIGHTS

“The House passed HR8, a Bipartisan Background Checks Act, *5 months ago* and the Senate has yet to vote on it,” she tweeted. “It was one of our 1st major priorities after ending the gov shutdown. You’ve been sitting on it since February giving bogus excuses. Care to explain the people why?”

Her call to bring the vote also was in response to McConnell’s tweet offering condolences to the families.

“The entire nation is horrified by today’s senseless violence,” tweeted the top Senate Republican. “Elaine’s and my prayers go out to the victims of this terrible violence, their families and friends, and the brave first responders who charged into harm’s way.”

Other prominent Democrats such as Sen. Bernie Sanders and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also reportedly called for the bill passed by House Democrats to be brought to a vote.

McConnell said Monday that he’s willing to consider “bipartisan” solutions in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, but made clear his opposition to gun control policies that infringe “on Americans’ constitutional rights.”

“Today, the president called on Congress to work in a bipartisan, bicameral way to address the recent mass murders which have shaken our nation,” McConnell said in a statement. “Senate Republicans are prepared to do our part.”

New York Times headline of Trump’s remarks on mass shootings ignites backlash

A New York Times headline about President Trump’s remarks on the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton drew condemnation online– including some Democratic presidential candidates– and was subsequently changed online late Monday.

The newspaper summarized Trump’s comments, in which he denounced hate and white supremacy, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism” on the front page of its first edition.

A photograph of Tuesday’s first edition was tweeted out by journalist Nate Silver Monday night and was quickly slammed by critics who accused The Gray Lady of inaccurately representing Trump’s comments.

NEW YORK TIMES NEEDS TO ‘LOOK IN THE MIRROR’ IF IT THINKS MSNBC, CNN ARE TOO PARTISAN, CRITICS SAY

Some Twitter users threatened to cancel their subscriptions and urged others to do the same.

“I canceled my subscription,” tweeted author and CNN contributor Joan Walsh, adding, “I can’t keep rewarding such awful news judgement.”

Prominent Democrats in Washington also took aim at the Times, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions,” the freshman congresswoman tweeted.

Presidential candidates, many of whom blamed Trump’s rhetoric for the El Paso, Texas, shooting that left at least 22 dead, also decried the headline.

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted, “That’s not what happened.”

“Lives literally depend on you doing better, NYT. Please do,” wrote Sen. Cory Booker.

A photograph of the Times’ second edition of the front page hours later revealed that the headline had been changed to “Assailing Hate But Not Guns.” Its website also showed a similar headline: “Trump Condemns Bigotry but Doesn’t Call for Major New Guns Laws.”

It’s not clear, however, if the headline change was in response to the backlash. The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.
