#RizzNews: Rombach Farms Closing, Woman Destroys $200K of Art for Selfie, Worse Tattoo EVER AND MORE!
Rombach Farms closes in Chesterfield due to family feud
Rombach Farms and Pumpkin Patch, a popular fall destination in West St. Louis County, is closing after decades in business.
"Due to circumstances beyond our control we are closing," the company said Saturday via social media. "We were seriously thinking about retiring but now we have no choice. We have to close this year. Thank you all for your support over the years."
Rombach Farms, a family business at 18639 Olive Street Road, offered anything from hayrides to a country store. Patrons and former employees lamented the news on Saturday, saying it was an end of an era.
Under the description, "feeling depressed," Rombach Farms tried to explain online:
"There were three Rombach Brothers that owned this farm. There is one surviving aunt here from the previous generation. To make a long story short, one of the inheritees (if there is such a word!) is suing my husband and aunt to sell. Also forbidding us to use his share of the land. This is affecting sooooo many people. It's very sad. We all know that money, real estate and family = fire in the hole! (In some cases that is)."
Driver in critical condition after car lands on roof of St. Louis home
Fire crews were called to a bizarre scene in St. Louis' Walnut Park West neighborhood on Sunday, where a car became trapped in the roof of a house.
The incident happened around 1 p.m. in the 5900 block of Lillian. According to the St. Louis Fire Department, no one was in the house at the time of the accident, but one person was trapped inside of the car.
The St. Louis Fire Department said in a Facebook post that one person was rescued from the vehicle and taken to an area hospital in critical condition.
Larry Davis witnessed exactly how it unfolded.
"I'll tell you I've never seen anything like that in my life...and I probably won't ever see it again," said Davis.
He said it happened just after he got out of church on Sunday morning, which is located at the corner of that intersection. He started going Facebook Live on the scene.
Davis explained to News 4 that the car was driving at high speed down Mimika Ave.
"The car was going pretty fast, maybe 80-90 mph," said Davis.
Once the SUV hit the T-intersection of Mimika Ave. & Lillian Ave., the vehicle drove over the curb, up the small hill or terrace of land in front of the house and launched into the air, landing on the roof of a residential home.
"He never took his foot off the gas. You could tell, he never took his foot off the gas," said Davis.
Davis described the unidentified driver as a male in his 40s.
"He was just happy to be alive. You could tell he had a couple of broken bones. It was visible, a lot of blood," said Davis.
The St. Louis Fire Department said the driver was trapped in his car for about an hour before he was extricated. The SUV sat on the roof for another 3 hours, before a towing company pulled it down.
Neighbors said this is not the first time a vehicle has ended up in this same yard.
"This is the second time it's happened since I've been here for 6 months," said Angelo Bridges, who lives across the street from the crash. Both he and Davis said the intersection sees reckless driving all the time.
"People just speeding, not stopping for stop signs," said Bridges.
"Our church fence has damage from a car accident that happened just a few weeks ago, but I've never seen anybody come that fast," said Davis.
The city placed a fourth stop sign at this intersection after the first crash last month, but since the second one, the neighbors say that's not enough to prevent the problem. "They need to put some speed bumps or something down," said Bridges.
Doctors Discover Why a Woman Had Dry Eyes . . . There Were 27 Old Contact Lenses in There
If you wear contact lenses and you've ever forgotten to take them out before you fell asleep, you know the feeling of waking up to PAINFULLY dry eyes. So I'm not sure how this woman could even function.
A 67-year-old woman went to her optometrist in Solihull, England back in November to have cataract surgery, and she told her doctor she had really dry eyes. And during the exam, the doctor figured out why.
The woman had 27 LOST CONTACTS stuck in her eye socket.
The doctor couldn't believe it was even possible to have that many lenses stuck behind an eye. And when she removed all of them, guess what? . . . the woman said she felt a lot better.
A report about this case was just released in the "British Medical Journal". And the doctor says it's a reminder to get regular eye doctor appointments . . . because you never know what they might find.
