Yes, You’re Reading It Right

Gordon Hageman couldn’t believe the credit card offer he got in the mail.
“My first thought, it was a mistake,” Hageman said.
The wine distributor called the number on the offer, gave them the offer code and verified his information. Sure enough, it was right: the pre-approved credit card came with a 79.9 percent APR.
Yes, 79.9 percent.
The offer is for a Premier card from First Premier Bank, which is based in South Dakota. On its Web site, First Premier says it is the country’s 10th largest issuer of Visa and MasterCard credit cards. The site also says it “focuses on individuals who have less than perfect credit but are actually still creditworthy.”
“I think they’re trying to take advantage of me,” said Hageman.

Thou Shall Not Steal

An Arlington church is left without air-conditioning after the church's three AC units were stolen.
The Redeemed Christian Church is a small church in Arlington off Cesery Blvd. A church that stands by the spirit of giving, but sometime between Wednesday evening and Saturday night, someone took too much.
"I'm still shocked," said Joke Badewa.
Badewa has gone to the church for the four years. She says Saturday evening, in the middle of choir practice; it started getting hot inside the church.
Badewa says they tried turning the air-conditioning on, but it wasn't working. As a last resort, she went outside to check the air-conditioning units behind the church.
That is when Badewa found three empty slabs of concrete and wires hanging from the wall.
According to the police report, the units were worth 6 thousand dollars.
