A Hopkins teenager is headed to Omaha Friday after an invitation from Warren Buffett. The second richest man in America called the Dairy Queen on Main Street in Hopkins after hearing about employee Joey Prusak.
A Minnesota National Guardsman, accused of stealing hundreds of soldiers’ identities, had a target list that included billionaire Warren Buffet. Keith Novak made his first appearance in federal court Monday on a fraud charge related to the identity theft. Novak is charged with one count of fraud in connection with the theft of personal identification information for more than 400 active-duty U.S. soldiers. The FBI revealed that much of the evidence against Novak comes from their taped conversations with him.
A Hopkins teenager who generously — and without anyone watching — went out of his way to help a stranger, is now reaping the rewards of that kindness. Joey Prusak saw a woman steal $20 from a blind customer at the Dairy Queen where he works. So he gave the guy his own cash.
As negotiations continue in Washington, D.C. to avoid falling off the so-called “fiscal cliff,” many are left with a simple question: can taxing the rich raise enough money to make a dent in the national debt?
