Benjamin Jessurun 410-443-0771 1 Park Ave., Ste. 1b Mount Airy, MD 21771 bjessurun1@allstate.com Orville Rogers may be 100-yearsold, but he is not slowing down. In fact, he’s probably the fastest centenarian you’ll ever know. The Dallas resident trained bomber pilots during World War II and now says that he’s on “top of the world” after breaking five world running records for his age group during a championship meet in Maryland last weekend.

“I have a total of 18 world records and I’m very grateful that G-d has blessed me with the ability and the motivation to run well,” Rogers said. Rogers said during the Korean War he flew the biggest airplane in the world, the B-36 strategic bomber. “We had 16 crew members and 16 20-millimeter canons on each airplane for defense and we had a capability and we had the responsibility to retaliate against Russia if war had been declared,” he said. Rogers has not been competing forever. He entered his first race when he was 90. Now he competes in the 100 to 104 age group. Last week, Rogers set the new world age group record in the 60-meter dash with a time of 19.13 seconds. He secured his other age group world records at the 2018 Indoor Championships in the 200-meter, 400-meter, 800-meter and 1,500-meter events. What’s his secret for a long life? “I’m a Christian and G-d promises a long life,” he said. “I have a wonderful wife who died 10 years ago. I have a great family. I have lots of friends and I keep active mentally, physically and spiritually.”

busy summer season, he was hit with a major fine: around $3,700. Now that’s a lot of dough. Supporters from his town – and probably fans of his famous pastries – are trying to get the fine waived and to get the town to change the archaic rule. An online petition to change the rule has more than 2,000 signatures. That’s pretty impressive given that Lusigny-sur-Barse only had about 2,000 residents in 2014. “To the workers’ inspector and the city government: Help our bakery!” the petition reads. Vaivre said he loves his job. “We’ve got to stop [penalizing] people who work,” he said. This is not the only law that limits workers’ hours in the country. In January 2017, France passed a law that gives workers the right to limit their out-ofoffice and after-hours correspondence. The country’s 35-hour work week has been in place since 2000, but various reforms have softened these rules over time and some industries are granted special exceptions. Because, you know, well, someone has to bring home the dough.

Derrick Faria of Indiana robbed a bank last Thursday. But less than an hour after getting his haul, police hauled him into the station. How did they find him so fast? Turns out that Faria, 19, ordered a taxi before walking into the bank with a note that read, “This is a robbery. Give me all your money.” The clerk complied and then Faria took the cab back home, paying the driver $20 from the stolen funds. It didn’t take long for authorities to connect the dots and find their lazy thief at his home where they arrested. Police recovered all of the bank’s funds – except for the $14 cab fare and $6 tip. Criminals beware: better make sure to have a decent getaway car when planning your next caper.
