School shopping - 08/01/14

The big weekend is here - the tax-free holiday where parents in TN get a 10% tax break on all things back-to-school.
I'll be part of the mad rush today to get our little boy ready for 1st grade Monday.
What's interesting, though, is the number of retailers who jump in on the action. 
I saw a women's boutique offering tax-free specials.  I guess moms need to go back to school in style, too!
I hope you're able to get what you need this weekend and enjoy the last few days with the kiddos before they head back to school.

BOSTON-SPACE SAVERS

BOSTON (AP) -- It's the end of the line for Boston parking spot savers. Mayor Marty Walsh says beginning today, city workers will start hauling away orange traffic cones, plastic chairs and everything else people use to save their parking spaces. It's a Beantown tradition to hold a shoveled-out parking spot. But many see the space-savers as eyesores or being unfair to others who need on-street parking.

CASINO MARKERS CHALLENGE

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- If you sign an I-O-U -- make sure you have the bucks. At least in Nevada. The Nevada Supreme Court has denied an appeal by a California high roller accused of failing to pay $384,000 in gambling debts. Harel Zahavi gave casino markers to the Venetian, Caesars Palace, Hard Rock and Palazzo. He was convicted of four felony counts of passing a bad check. Zahavi contended the I-O-U's were short-term business loans, not personal checks. But the state Supreme Court doesn't agree. The Las Vegas Sun reports the justices ruled when Zahavi signed the markers, he guaranteed he had the money to cover them.

PRISON CLOCK SCHOOL

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) -- Doing time takes on a whole new meaning at the state prison in Pendleton, Oregon. The East Oregonian reports the penitentiary has the only full-scale clock school in the country. That's what Viviane Klein learned, when she wanted to donate the collection of her late husband, California clockmaker Henri Klein. The collection includes more than 400 clocks from around the world, everything from cuckoos to grandfather clocks. The prison clock school also gets specialized tools and books. The paper reports it took three days of packing, crating and shrink-wrapping to get it all ready for shipment.

MILAN FASHION WEEK

MILAN (AP) -- Model Bianca Balta isn't rail-thin. At least not anymore. A very pregnant Balta got a big hand from the audience as she walked the runway during Milan, Italy's Fashion Week. The Dolce and Gabbana show highlighted motherhood in a collection dedicated to moms. One model held her squirming baby. Another mom walked the runway with her daughter, both wearing matching pink dresses.
