Batesville, In. — Consumers have been awarded a judgment against Burger King after accusing the “King” of up charging customers using a BOGO coupon for the Croissan’wich.In May, Koleta Anderson of Upper Marlboro, Maryland hired an attorney to file a class-action suit against Burger King, alleging that the company was actually inflating prices when customers used a buy one get one free coupon to purchase the breakfast sandwiches.While Burger King continues to deny any wrongdoing and the court did not rule that any party was right, a settlement has been reached in the case. And other customers can share in Anderson’s triumph.As part of the settlement, Burger King will pay $5, or provide $2 gift cards, to you if you “purchased two or more modified Croissan’wich breakfast sandwiches (without egg, cheese and/or a meat) from a Burger King restaurant, redeemed a BOGO coupon in connection with the purchase, and paid more than the amount that restaurant was charging at the time for a single, unmodified, higher-priced Croissan’wich you ordered” between Oct. 1, 2015 and May 19, 2017.Anderson alleges she first noticed a problem in March, when she used a BOGO coupon and was charged $3.19 pre-tax for a sausage, egg and cheese Croissan’wich (and was given another sandwich “free” as part of the deal). But when she went back to buy a single Croissan’wich without a coupon, she was charged just $2.16 before tax.Knowing that’s not how BOGO coupons should work, Anderson decided to try this move at several other Burger Kings and found the same pattern.Claims can be filed online here and must be submitted by January 19, 2018.

They did so just before the hour mark, with Peter Whittingham putting the finishing touch on a flowing passing move. Striker Danny Graham had the best chances to add to Hull’s tally – missing a yawning net in the sixth minute and heading straight at Joe Lewis deep in added time. Indeed, Davies’ goal is Hull’s only one from open play to date and Bruce can track the issue back to last year’s promotion campaign when Graham was not even at the KC Stadium. “At this level if you don’t take your chances it’s tough,” he said. “Last year it was our Achilles heel too…the number of times I sat here (with a 1-0) and we could have had two, three, four goals. “It’s got to be a concern because we created really good chances. It leaves a bad taste in your mouth. “On another day we would quite easily have won the game but at this level you don’t get chances as good as the ones we had too frequently. “We have to improve on that. As a team we have to chip in, not just the strikers.” Press Association Hull went into the match with three defenders but no outright strikers on the bench, leaving George Boyd as their most attacking substitute. That says something about the current standing of Matty Fryatt and Nick Proschwitz, who are both available to leave on loan, and left Bruce eager for summer signing Yannick Sagbo to return from suspension. The Ivorian was sent off for an attempted headbutt on his home debut against Norwich but is available for next week’s meeting with Newcastle. “Sagbo is back, which is good because that gives us another bit of firepower and we haven’t really seen him yet,” he added. Cardiff boss Malky Mackay came away reasonably content with his side’s efforts, especially given the number of air miles his men had collected in the previous 10 days. Nine of his players were called away on international duty, a result of squad strengthening since promotion from the Championship, with two – Craig Bellamy and David Marshall – missing the trip to Hull after picking up injuries. Others, such as Gary Medel and Kim Bo-kyung, came back from gruelling trips to Chile and South Korea to put in solid displays. “They (Bellamy and Marshall) are key players for us and we lost the two guys: that is the flip side of having top-quality footballers,” said Mackay. “We had three or four who had been on planes, trains and automobiles to get here for the game and at times I thought that showed. “But it was probably a fair point for both teams, we both tried to go and win it. “There were two teams going hard at it and it proved to be a tough game, so it was a well deserved point for both teams.” Hull manager Steve Bruce admits he is still not certain whether his side will score enough goals to achieve their aim of Barclays Premier League survival. The Tigers banked their fourth point of the season in as many matches with Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Cardiff. It was a fixture Bruce had targeted as a potential win but although things began well with defender Curtis Davies nodding home Tom Huddlestone’s cross in the 40th minute, the Bluedbirds always looked likely to equalise.
Remi Garde expects a response and an improved performance from his Aston Villa team against Watford. Garde’s first defeat as manager was a heavy 4-0 loss to Everton last weekend in a game where Villa were three goals behind at half-time. The display was poles apart from that which earned a goalless draw at home to Manchester City in the Frenchman’s first match in charge prior to the international break. Garde did not go as far as to suggest that Saturday is a must-win match for Villa but neither is he underestimating its importance. He said: ”It is a huge game but it is not the end of the season, nobody will be relegated at the end of the weekend. Well I hope, if that is so then we are in more trouble than I thought! ”It would be a huge boost in confidence for us to win this weekend. We want to, of course, win this game and we are going to try and do it in the way we want. ”But we will also accept a victory in the last minute, I have no problem with that. ”The first minutes will be important for everyone but the result at the end will be more important.” Grealish has been dropped but s ome good news for Villa is the return to fitness of Jores Okore from a knee injury and the defender could be in the squad for the first time since the FA Cup final in May. Forward Gabriel Agbonlahor (calf) will be assessed. To make matters worse, just hours after the defeat young midfielder Jack Grealish was photographed partying on a night out and did not return home with the rest of the squad on the team coach – a breach of club discipline which has resulted in the 20-year-old being left out of the squad against the Hornets. Despite the result at Goodison Park, Garde felt Villa could take some encouragement from their second-half showing and he wants his players to begin in that same vein in front of their own supporters on Saturday. ”The first half (at Everton) was quite disappointing for me,” said Garde. ”I thought that after the first goal we didn’t resist enough, lost too many challenges and didn’t create any chances at all for the first 35 minutes. ”In the first 35 minutes I didn’t see players who want to fight for the shirt. This is not the way I want to play, we were a little bit shy. The team is new and does not really know each other yet and we have to work hard to get to know each other. ”But the reaction in the second half was much better and this week in training we have been working hard. I am still very pleased with the way we train. ”I think we can do better than we have done and I hope we can improve on Saturday because it is my responsibility to find some solutions quickly, because we need them.” Villa are without a Barclays Premier League win since the opening day of the season and are rooted to the bottom of the table, five points adrift of safety.

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – West Indies left-hander Darren Bravo will lead Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in their opening match of the Regional Four-Day Championship against Jamaica Scorpions starting here today.The 30-year-old replaces leg-spinner Imran Khan who oversaw Red Force’s Super50 Cup campaign last November but has been sidelined with injury for the opening round.Chief selector Tony Gray said Bravo was an ideal choice to fill the leadership role, especially with his “immense knowledge of the tactical part of the game”.“Bravo obviously has shown the propensity as a leader and I think he was absolutely brilliant in the North/South (domestic) game, with North eventually winning by eight wickets,” Gray said.“The West Indies selectors recognised his leadership qualities in giving him the opportunity to lead the President’s XI and they won by three wickets against an international side, so he has shown that commitment and he has shown leadership qualities on and off the field.”He added: “He has immense knowledge of the tactical part of the game which was particularly shown when North played South, which led the selectors to name his as captain for the season.”Bravo is a veteran of 54 Tests and 110 One-Day Internationals but is working his way back to West Indies colours after being dropped last September due to a poor run of form.He plundered 481 runs in the recent Super50 Cup and his 70 against Ireland last Saturday in Bridgetown proved instrumental in the President’s XI win.Bravo said his main responsibility would be to inspire the young batting group in what he expected to be a challenging campaign.“It is a great privilege and honour to captain Trinidad and Tobago national senior team and I think there have been a lot of players who have done well for T&T as captain and I will be looking forward to following in their footsteps,” said Bravo.“It is just a matter of going out there and taking full responsibility for the batting unit, being the most senior batter on the team, and try to help the youngsters as much as possible. I know it will be a difficult one, but I am looking forward to it and I am sure I will enjoy it.”All-rounder Yannick Ottley will serve as Bravo’s deputy in a squad missing key players like experienced batsman Jason Mohammad and fast bowler Anderson Phillip, who snatched 16 wickets during the Super50 Cup.Joshua Da Silva, who averaged 44 in the Super50 to help fire West Indies Emerging Players to a stunning title triumph, has been included as wicketkeeper.Uncapped Terrance Hinds has also been called up along with fellow pacer Uthman Muhammad, 30, who played his only two first-class matches five years ago.SQUAD – Darren Bravo (captain), Jeremy Solozano, Kyle Hope, Isaiah Rajah, Joshua Da Silva, Khesan Yannick Ottley, Yannic Cariah, Akeal Hosein, Imran Khan, Terrance Hinds, Uthman Muhammad, Odean Smith, Bryan Charles, Keagan Simmons.
The USC Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council presented a check for more than $12,000 to the Dept. of Public Safety’s Explorer Program on Thursday night. The program allows at-risk youth ages 12 through 21 to explore careers in law enforcement and public service.The donation, raised during the Greek Carnival put on by IFC and Panhellenic in the fall, will provide funds for participants in the Explorer Program to go to leadership camps in the summer and gain other skills through the program.“We’re truly excited,” said Deputy Chief Johnnie Adams, who heads the Explorer Program. “[This donation] gives us the opportunity to grow our program because the more funds we have, the more we can do. We can do more outreach and have more kids join the program.”Each fraternity and sorority chapter donated money to the carnival, and IFC and Panhellenic reached out to the Undergraduate Student Government and nearby businesses to sponsor the event. Last fall was the first time the Greek system held the carnival, and it has plans to continue the philanthropy.“It was just a natural partnership pairing up with DPS and the Explorer Program because they do so much for us as a Greek community, whether it be education or keeping us safe on The Row,” Panhellenic President Caroline Cannan said. “We’re looking forward to the next few years and expanding the event and making it even more successful.”DPS Chief John Thomas called the Greek system DPS’s most consistent supporter in his nine years working for the university. The groups have collaborated more in recent years, and now, IFC and Panhellenic have weekly meetings with Adams.IFC President Jake Simon commented on the growing relationship between the members in the Greek system and DPS.“Over the last year, the relationship between DPS, IFC and Panhellenic has been growing to an amazing degree,” Simon said. “We have a lot of dialogue, which helps us stay safer as a community.”Ryan Lopez, a freshman majoring in chemistry, is serving his third year as a cadet with the program. He is also the post commander, tasked with overseeing the cadets and making sure that enough people are working at events.“My experience with the cadet program has been an incredible one,” Lopez said. “Being a kid from the neighborhood, it’s given me a chance to explore something that I really didn’t think I’d like. It’s given me an opportunity to be exposed to more of a college atmosphere and develop relationships with the people on campus.”Sergeant Rick Gonzalez was also part of a cadet program before he came to work at USC, where he has headed the program for the past 10 years. His favorite memory of the Explorer Program is when USC hired 15 out of 20 cadets from the local community after they went through training.“When I was a cadet, what helped me was that I was able to interact with someone who was just like me from the neighborhood,” Gonzalez said. “Having somebody at that young age walk you through the process of becoming a law enforcement officer is really beneficial.”Adams explained that Thomas has promoted community engagement throughout his time at USC and that DPS has a goal to reach out to the nearby community as a Trojan family. In the future, DPS hopes to have its cadets more engaged with the campus and serve more actively alongside DPS in promoting public safety.“[The donation] is really great because it shows the kids that the community cares about them,” Gonzalez said. “Not only does our department care if they’re successful, but it’s the USC community that is also contributing.”
