Koi story: Auburn woman seeks homes for 2,000 fish

AUBURN, CA - A woman who stocked her pond with eight koi a dozen years ago is now wondering what to do with a population that has grown to an estimated 2,000 fish.

"I have a big problem," said Joan Levy.  "I need to get rid of the fish."

Levy wants to drain the pond, but doesn't want to kill the koi.

West Sacramento koi breeder and dealer Anthony Quintero of Koi Enterprise said koi reproduce rapidly and can eventually overwhelm a residential pond.

"We hear that a lot," said Quintero.  "It's actually a very common occurrence."

Koi is a carefully bred ornamental carp originally from Japan that can sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Quintero said Levy is unlikely sitting on a gold mine because her koi have been allowed to breed indiscriminately.

"She may have 2,000 (ordinary) carp," he said.

Why you may want to double check your next Chipotle bill

One of America's leading burrito chains was caught pinching customers' pennies recently.

An article in the Huffington Post revealed two conscientious New Jersey Chipotle customers noticed their checks were rounded up to the nearest even amount.

When Star-Ledger reporter, Karen Price, investigated the claim, she found Chipotle's registers did indeed round up, as well as down to the nearest nickel.

"The idea is simply to limit the possible combinations of change on cash transactions to keep the lines moving quickly in high volume areas," spokesman Chris Arnold informed the Star-Ledger.

Arnold later told the New York Times that Chipotle has not seen any profit from the practice.
