BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

A merry prank for Ohio insurance agent

A merry prank for Ohio insurance agent

A merry group of jolly tricksters lampooned an Athens, Ohio, insurance agent’s sullen holiday spirit by created a scene from “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” on the lawn outside of his downtown business, Athens Insurance Services Inc.

The tableau included the wood-paneled station wagon and big green pine tree tied atop. “Chaotically decorated” with “holiday ornaments strewn across the grass,” the Athens News reported Sunday.

Friends began texting and calling Andy Vogt about how “unidentified individuals” had turned the front of his business into the movie set of the popular holiday film, according to the newspaper.

On Saturday, Mr. Vogt shared a Facebook post by a friend who had added a disclaimer: “this post does NOT implicate anyone tagged in it, nor do I have any involvement.”

The story went: “Once upon a time, not far down Richland (Avenue), there was a jolly insurance agent named Andy Vogt. He was struggling to get into the Christmas spirit, so a few of Santa’s mischievous elves decided to spread some holiday cheer. While Andy was nestled all snug in his bed, these elves they were decorating, including a sign with his head. When morning came and texts started to chatter, he got in the ‘Cedes to see what was the matter. What to his wondering eyes should appear? Tinsel, garland, and a wagon of cheer!”
