Modesto city council approves law banning weapons at rallies

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) — The central California city of Modesto has banned firearms, glass bottles, baseball bats and other items that can be used as weapons at rallies and protests.

The ordinance approved this week by the  Modesto City Council also prohibits participants wear masks or anything that hides their face.

A city spokesman said the ordinance initially included banning firearms but that language was taken out because state law already regulates them.

The ordinance comes as the National Straight Pride Coalition tries to organize a rally in Modesto that would celebrate traditional gender roles and Christianity, heterosexuality and contributions of whites to Western Civilization.

Opponents say the rally would promote hatred of LGBTQ people.

Florida woman upset over her dog being dyed by groomer

LAKE WORTH BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman got a colorful but unwanted surprise when she picked up her dog from a grooming session.

The Palm Beach Post reports Graziella Puleo’s Goldendoodle named Lola was scheduled for a buzz cut and teeth cleaning recently at a Lake Worth grooming center. When Puleo picked up the dog, its eyebrows and tail were shaved and dyed neon green, and its ears were neon pink.

The dog’s underside was left pink from the close cut, which caused an infection that had to be treated by a vet.

Amore’s Pet Salon Dog Grooming Day Care Boarding Spa owner Raquel Adams says they thought Lola was “missing something” and wanted to “beautify” the dog.

Sheriff: Cashier tells knife-wielding suspect ‘not today’

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — When a knife-wielding Florida woman attempted to rob a Family Dollar store, the cashier said “not today” while another worker locked the door until deputies arrived, authorities say.
Manatee County sheriff's officials say Brittany Rodriguez, 27, was taken into custody without incident at the Bradenton store.

An arrest report says Rodriguez entered the store, selected some items and approached the cashier. That’s when investigators say she pulled the knife and pointed it at the cashier. When deputies entered the store, they say Rodriguez threw a knife to the floor. She was ordered to the ground and arrested.
