CITRUS HEIGHTS- A Walmart employee is hoping to reunite a child with the incredible book of rules that they wrote.
“Don’t get into other people’s business. Don’t call each other names. Clean up your messes. No eating other people’s food. One hundred eighteen is don’t keep saying please if someone says no. I like that,” said Raymond Flores as he reads off the kind of advice you might snatch up in the self-help section at Barnes & Noble.
“One hundred twelve is to try to make things fair,” reads Flores.
But these life lessons came to Walmart employee Flores at work, as he scanned the lot of his Citrus Heights store for empty carts.
“There really wasn’t much out there and I saw this book sitting in a parking spot, so I thought I’d pick it up and check it out,” said Flores.
After flipping through these little pages, Flores quickly realized he’d found something too special to be tossed.
“Rule number 154 was to protect this book,” he read.
Following the lead of the young author and Batman, one of his superhero idols, he wants to find the rightful owner.
“They put a lot of hard work into it. These rules mean a lot to them and probably to the parents, as well,” he said.
While it’s obvious the more trained hand of a parent wrote down several of the rules, page turning reveals words and wisdom penned by a little person.
“Ware (sic) your seatbelt.”
“One of them is go to bed early if you have dance in the morning. That applies to more than just dance. If you have work, school, anything important; just prioritize,” Flores said.
“Put your shoes by the front door when you take them off,” he reads that line as he looks over at his own shoes piled by a doorway.
Other listed ‘rules’ to live by that appear to have come from a child, speak across years they’ve yet to live.
“Don’t leave your friends behind and no texting and driving at the same time,” Flores read.
The other reason’s he’s so interested in getting the book back to it’s author, is that it’s clear rule 158 was in progress when the book was lost.”
“I thought this was adorable. I just thought it was really nice and stuff. What kind of kid does this,” he said.
Flores can’t wait to find out.
He’s hoping this story reaches the book’s owner and it can be returned.
One the rules that might stand out the most: Don’t bite the dentist.
If you’re the author or connected to the child who is, Flores is asking you to email FOX40′s Sonseeahray Tonsall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A woman gave birth to a baby boy inside a Cañon City Walmart bathroom on Saturday afternoon, multiple managers at the store confirmed.
The woman gave birth to the baby at around 2:10 p.m. inside the bathrooms between the two entrances at the front of the store.
Monica LeDoux is a Walmart employee who said she gave mouth to mouth to the newborn baby boy shortly after it was born.
“She already delivered the baby. She had the baby in her lap, the baby was purple,” LeDoux told the Cañon City Daily Record. “The baby’s mom and the (baby’s grandmother), they were on the phone with 911 and they didn’t know how to do CPR, so all I did was just give it mouth to mouth, and he started moving and he pinked up a little bit.
“He started breathing, so he did good.”
The paramedics told LeDoux that since she gave mouth to mouth to the newborn baby that she should go to the hospital to get checked out. While at St. Thomas More, the doctors told LeDoux that she was fine.
That’s when LeDoux found out that the baby was a boy, she said. During the action of giving mouth to mouth, LeDoux said she never noticed if the baby was a boy or girl.
LeDoux said she heard from doctors that the baby is doing good and is in Colorado Springs and breathing on his own.
LeDoux has never met the family and doesn’t know their names. She said the mother was a young white woman.

A few weeks ago I was doing some late night shopping at Walmart. As I was walking out the door, I heard some yelling and commotion behind me. I spun around and saw a very large plasma screen HDTV balanced on a shopping cart coming at me really fast. I jumped out of the way and watched as a man ran as fast as he could with that cart out the door. Four associates chased after him. It reminded me of a cartoon or a comedy sketch. Those five men and that TV darted in and out of the aisles of the parking lot for a couple of minutes, until one of the employees finally caught up with the guy and tackled him to the ground. Sadly, the HDTV went down too. And broke into pieces. Those four associates continued to wrestle with that man and subdue him till the cops came and arrested him. Those are definately some dedicated Walmart associates.
