Wendy’s says it has no plans to raise prices during the busiest times at its restaurants

Wednesday, February 28, 2024 4:01PM ABC7 Eyewitness News Stream Southern California’s News Leader and Original Shows 24/7 Wendy’s says that it has no plans to increase prices during the busiest times at its restaurants. The burger chain clarified its stance on how it will approach pricing after various media reports said that the company was looking to test having the prices of its menu items fluctuate throughout the day based on demand. “Wendy’s will not implement surge pricing, which is the practice of raising prices when demand is highest. We didn’t use that phrase, nor do we plan to implement that practice,” the company said late Tuesday in a prepared statement. Wendy’s Co. plans to invest about $20 million to launch digital menu boards at all of its U.S. company-run restaurants by the end of 2025. It also plans to invest approximately $10 million over the next two years to support digital menu enhancements globally. Wendy’s said that its digital menu boards “could allow us to change the menu offerings at different times of day and offer discounts and value offers to our customers more

UC Merced professor explains cause of Leap Year

(KFSN) — You may notice an extra day on the calendar this week. That’s because 2024 is a leap year. February 29 only comes once every four years. As we know, the earth is constantly spinning, and one 24-hour day equals one complete spin. At the same time, the earth is orbiting around the sun and one year equals one rotation around the sun. However, as UC Merced professor Anna Nierenberg explains, the time it takes us to circle the sun is not exactly 365 days. “It takes 365.242 days to go around, and it’s almost a quarter day extra,” she said. “So if you add an extra day every four years, you can correct for that little bit of extra time, it brings you back in sync with that seasonal going

Idaho set to execute Thomas Creech, one of the longest-serving death row inmates in the US

BOISE, Idaho — The hour of Thomas Eugene Creech’s death has been set, and it is rapidly approaching. On Wednesday morning Idaho prison officials will ask the 73-year-old if he would like a mild sedative to help calm him before his execution at the Idaho Maximum Security Institution south of Boise. Then, at 10 a.m. local time, they will bring him into the execution chamber and strap him to a padded medical table. Thomas Eugene Creech was already serving time after being convicted of killing two people in 1974 when he was sentenced to die for beating a fellow inmate to death in 1981 Idaho Department of Correction via AP Defense attorneys and the warden will check for any last-minute court orders that would halt the execution of Creech, who is one of the longest-serving death row inmates in the U.S. Barring any legal stay, volunteers with medical training will insert a catheter into one of Creech’s veins. He’ll be given a chance to say his last words, and a spiritual advisor may pray with him. Then the state will inject a drug intended to

Wednesday, February 28, 2024 2:20PM A Madera County group is taking action to nourish Valley infants. Madera County Breastfeeding Coalition will hold a breast milk collection Thursday. MADERA, Calif. (KFSN) — A Madera County group is taking action to nourish Valley infants. Madera County Breastfeeding Coalition will hold a breast milk collection Thursday. When it comes to a baby’s well-being, human milk is highly encouraged by health experts. However, sometimes, a mother isn’t able to breastfeed. “The next best thing is donor milk, and they go through a whole process,” said Sylvia Stratford, with Madera County Public Health Department. “It’s pasteurized. It’s very safe, very few components are lost. The biggest and most important micronutrients and macronutrients are preserved through pasteurization.” Madera County hopes to raise awareness of breastmilk’s benefits and increase access across the Valley. The county’s Breastfeeding Coalition is asking moms to donate fresh or frozen milk during its Milk Collection event. It then goes to Mother’s Milk Bank in San Jose, which serves families and hospitals in

Trevor May on Oakland A’s owner John Fisher: ‘He really hasn’t done anything successfully’

OAKLAND — Trevor May is finally free from the Oakland A’s and owner John Fisher. “Like a bird, finally let loose to fly,” May said Saturday at Fans Fest, a celebration of Oakland sports fans at Jack London Square. “Last year was very hard. I just had a lot of stuff I was worrying about.” Last season, May was the highest-paid player on the A’s and one of the team’s veteran leaders who was trying to keep things positive in a difficult year for him personally, having stepped away for about a month to deal with mental health issues, and for the franchise, which announced its plans to leave for Las Vegas. It felt impossible for May to speak honestly about playing for a team that ended up with the 10th-most losses in MLB history while using an MLB-low payroll. There was plenty he wanted to say, but couldn’t. Like on that Tuesday night in June, when more than 27,000 A’s fans showed up for a reverse boycott to protest Fisher’s decision to move the team to Vegas. Fans chanted “sell the team.” They were

Blizzard warning issued in Sierra, areas of Butte, Tehama counties

CHICO — A storm warning has been upgraded to a blizzard warning by the National Weather Service Sacramento, scheduled to begin Thursday and end Sunday in the Sierra Nevada including parts of Butte and Tehama counties 2,000 feet elevation and above. The warning cites dangerous and impossible mountain travel with 5-10 feet of snow forecast above 5,000 feet and 1-4 feet above 3,000 feet. “This will be the coldest storm of the season so far,” with snow levels dropping into Sierra foothill communities, said meteorologist Courtney Carpenter in a video address, “different from a lot of the warmer systems we’ve seen so far this season.” In some foothill communities, tree damage and downed power lines may result from a combination of windy conditions and low elevation snow, according to Carpenter. The Paradise ridge, which Butte County declared an emergency in 2023 because of snowfall, appears to be just outside the blizzard warning area, according to Meteorologist Karl Swanberg. Precipitation in Paradise on Thursday and Friday, during the wettest part of the storm, is forecast to come in the form of rain rather than snow, Swanberg

Tehama County Animal Care Center pauses stray dog intakes amidst influx

RED BLUFF — Due to an increase in animals, the Tehama County Animal Care Center has temporarily paused dog intakes, but there are plans to restart the process on Friday. Animal Care Center Manager Christine McClintock confirmed her department met with the county’s heads, county counsel, and all the different animal regulation agencies the care center contracts with. The care center made it known they would be closing the shelter’s stray dog intakes for a week. According to the care center, 75 stray dogs were brought in over eight days, and only 10 of those intakes returned home. The care center said it needs to focus on getting the extra dogs, 9 of which are puppies, one delivered, into foster, rescue, or adoptive homes. Since the influx, the care center has had virtually no complaints from the public, and staff have tried their best to assist in returning dogs to the field. “We have 47 kennels, so 75 dogs on top of all the dogs that were already there, and we are already quite overcrowded, just was not feasible to ensure that we were caring

President Biden holds off ‘uncommitted’ protest vote and other Michigan primary 2024 takeaways

President Joe Biden handily won the Michigan primary Tuesday night, but still faced protest votes over his handling of the war in Gaza. Critics of the president have protested the Israel-Hamas war across the state, which is home to a large Arab American population. However, it remains unclear if the “uncommitted” ballot option Tuesday, which organizers urged Democratic voters to choose to send a message to Washington, will garner enough votes to earn any delegates at the party’s national convention this summer. On the Republican side, former President Donald Trump again romped, easily beating former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Haley, though, showed once again that an unignorable minority of Republicans aren’t thrilled about the prospects of a third consecutive Trump nomination. Here are three takeaways from the results Tuesday night in Michigan. Biden handily wins, fending off a worst-case scenario… Biden was expected to win Michigan’s primary, but the growing effort to get progressives to vote for the “uncommitted” option on the ballot sparked speculation over what his margin would be. With About 49% of the estimated vote tallied at publication time, the president

FS Men’s Basketball falls in OT to No. 22 Utah State

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — After a 32-point loss at home to No. 19 San Diego State on Saturday, Fresno State men’s basketball found out they’d be shorthanded against No. 22 Utah State Tuesday night at the Save Mart Center. With both Enoch Boakye and Eduardo Andre out with injuries, the Bulldogs fought until the end without a center in the lineup before falling 77-73 to the Aggies in overtime. The Bulldog defense forced a shot-clock violation with 1:20 left in regulation and missed two shots, but each time got the offensive rebound before Senior Leo Colimerio was fouled and hit two free throws that gave Fresno State a 63-59 lead with 52 seconds left. With two seconds left in regulation, Utah State’s Darius Brown II hit an unlikely bank shot three-pointer to tie the game 65-65 and send the Mountain West foes into OT. Tied 73-73 in OT, Brown II once again answered the call by hitting another three-pointer with 34 seconds remaining to pull ahead 76-73. Bulldog point guard Isaiah Hill scored 21 points before fouling out in the opening minute of OT, and
