|Woman's identity stolen after shipping snafuWIBQ / 1 d. 9 h. 40 min. ago more|
A Sullivan woman says her identity was stolen after a friend shipped her wallet to her by FedEx. Suzanne Gorgas left her wallet behind while visiting a friend in Colorado. She says her friend shipped it to her, but even before it arrived, she began getting notices from her credit card company's fraud center. And when the package arrived, instead of her wallet, she found a bottle of lotion. She says FEDEX confirmed that the package label had been cut from its original box and taped onto another one before it left their Henderson, Colorado location, but that they couldn't find out who did it. She worries that now that her security has been compromised, it could cause her problems at any time, even years from now. FEDEX issued a statement which read: "FEDEX is committed to the safe transport and delivery of all shipments, and we take this allegation seriously and will investigate. As a matter of policy, we do not share details about individual customers or their shipments."

|Red Kettle campaign almost halfway to goalWIBQ / 3 d. 10 h. 36 min. ago more|
With only 12 days remaining in the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign, the organization has raised a little over 120-thousand dollars. While the Christmas Goal is $250,000, officials say they must take in a minimum of $213,000 to avoid cuts to community services. "(W)e count on these funds for a great percentage of our yearly budget, every year," said Captain Jason Schaal. "Our Christmas goal was set at $250,000 to allow us to expand on our Pathway of Hope program, to help fight generational poverty in our community. However, if we do not make a minimum of $213,000, cuts to community services will take place." "While the mail and online campaigns will go on until January 31st," said Schaal, "the bulk of our funds raised occur between the kettle kickoff date and our final day, December 23rd." The Salvation Army does not ring the kettle bells on Sundays, therefore, December 24th will not be a kettle day as in years past. You can donate at any Red Kettle in front of stores, by sending a donation to the Salvations Army office in Terre Haute, or by texting :"THKettle" to 41444. Staffers say there'a always a place for volunteers to help reduce costs of paid bell-ringing staff. To volunteer, you can call the office at 812-232-4081 or visit RegisterToRing.com In addition, the Salvation Army says it has now received nine valuable silver coins at random sites. Those donations were made anonymously.
