Red Cross asks community’s help to help others

The local chapter of the American Red Cross is asking community members to “adopt” a fire family for $1,200 which will cover shelter, clothing and food for one family of four for a few days during its Friends of Fire Families campaign that runs through January.

          For the second time this year, Arseniy Parshikov’s custom car stereo installment business has fallen victim to burglars who have stolen thousands of dollars in stereo equipment.

          Sometime on Sunday, someone broke into Bump in Da Trunk, located on College Hill Switch, and stole $10,000 to $15,000 worth of electronics, Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department investigator Scott Hill said. Because of the “insanity,” Parshikov said he has decided to close the doors to his car audio and video equipment businesses and become a mobile business. (December 3, 2010, Page 2A)
