 Thursday, June 26, 2014


A Stillwater County employee narrowly escaped injury earlier this week while using a courthouse restroom.
Stillwater County Deputy Treasurer Norma Brewer said a toilet exploded on Monday as she exited the stall. Brewer said she thought at first a bomb had gone off in the building. The explosion shattered the porcelain tank and rattled nerves in the building, but no one was injured. Brewer said Wednesday that the county will be replacing five toilets in the building as the result of the explosion and what officials learned after the mishap.
