WPTV.com -For most of the day Tuesday, only the drive-thru lane was open at a McDonald’s on US 1, just south of State Road 60.

Police say after the stabbing, Cruz threw the murder weapon into the bushes outside of the restaurant and then ran across the street to a Burger King where he discarded a second knife before police caught him.

Former restaurant owner wins $644 K suit against state of MS! Print
Friday, 22 August 2014 11:18

Sunherald.com -  A family that owned a restaurant in Bay St. Louis before Hurricane Katrina has won $644,000 in a lawsuit, with jurors ruling that land Mississippi took to build a new small-craft harbor was private property, not state tideland.

The verdict came Monday after a weeklong trial in Hancock County, Paul Scott, a lawyer for the Murphy family, said.

Testimony showed that the Murphy family, which operated Dan B's beachfront restaurant, had deeds showing their property extended beyond a decades-old retaining wall to the water's edge, Scott said. The Murphys had owned the land since the 1980s, he said.

Pamela Weaver, a spokeswoman for Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, declined to comment Wednesday. Hosemann's office administers state tidelands. The state could choose to pay the judgment or appeal. Continue

 
378 People "pay it Forward" at Florida Restaurant! Print
Friday, 22 August 2014 11:12

Tampabay.com -  The acts of kindness began at 7 a.m. Wednesday with a woman, her iced coffee and a stranger's caramel macchiato.

The woman paid for her own drink, then asked to pay for the drink of the person behind her in the drive-through. That person returned the favor and paid for the person behind, and so did that person, until the employees at the St. Petersburg Starbucks on Tyrone Boulevard began a tally on green laminated paper near the drive-through window.

By 1:30 p.m., the chain had reached 260 customers. People ordered a drink at the speaker. When they pulled through to the next window, the barista, Vu Nguyen, 29, leaned through and said with a smile that their drinks had already been paid for by the person in front of them. Would they like to return the favor?

"It makes your day better, I think," said Lexie Kane, 17, of St. Petersburg, who ordered an iced coffee.

Tim Burnside, 19, had visited in the morning and paid it forward. He returned later to see whether it was still going on. Seeing that it was, he ordered a second chai tea.

"It's nice just to do a random act of kindness for someone you don't know," said Burnside, also of St. Petersburg. Continue

 
Why restaurant and hotel workers may soon get a raise! Print
Friday, 22 August 2014 10:20

SCPR.org - Many jobs in the hospitality industry have low pay but don't require specialized skills. So they often serve as a stopgap for people between jobs. In periods when the broader job market is bleak, jobs in this sector tend to get snapped up quickly.

The growing number of unfilled restaurant and hotel jobs implies that many potential workers are finding other jobs or looking at these postings and saying, "Meh, maybe I can do better." After adjusting for inflation, wages in the sector are lower today than they were four years ago. But that could change. If those job postings go unfilled for long enough, employers may offer higher salaries to lure more or better applicants. Continue

WJHF.com - A Nashville, Tennessee man is suing a popular Panama City Beach restaurant over the death of his wife.

Bobbie Sovia died 13 days after eating a raw oyster. Her husband's attorney claimed the restaurant didn't properly warn the couple about the potential dangers. The Sovia's were vacationing at the beach in 2012. During their trip they ate a Dusty's Oyster Bar at least three times, consuming raw oysters. Bobbie reportedly ate one to two oysters on Tuesday, August 14th. The couple returned to the restaurant on Wednesday and Thursday, but their attorney claimed Bobbie did not eat anymore oysters. Over the next several days, her health began to decline. "She's not feeling that well on Thursday, she feels worse on Friday," Sovia's lawyer Elliot Olsen said. The Sovia' returned to Nashville where Bobbie was hospitalized.

She died on August 27. The autopsy found a bacteria infection called vibrio vulnificus, which is found in raw oysters. Continue

Huffingtonpost.com - A 6-year veteran Wendy's worker in Alabama is alleging that management fired her for "job abandonment" while she was being treated for an ovarian cyst that would require surgery.

In a lawsuitfiled in federal court Friday, Jamila Richey accuses Wendy's of Bowling Green, Inc. of dropping her from the store schedule after two absences due to the cyst. According to Richey, she provided a doctor's note to prove she was sick and would have to be hospitalized.

Richey says in the lawsuit that she learned through coworkers that her manager "told everyone [she] had abandoned her job." After a series of meetings with managers, Richey alleges, she was told "she should not come back to work."

Mike O'Malley, the franchisee of the restaurant, said he had been unaware of the lawsuit or its allegations until contacted by HuffPost. O'Malley said he was concerned by the claims and would try to rectify the situation if they were true. Continue
