American Standard rolls out new faucets
High-performing bathroom faucets American Standard are now available nationwide at The Home Depot in the Marquette, Espana and Alejandra collections.
The products’ water-saving fixtures include washerless ceramic disc valves and the exclusive no-tools Speed Connect system.
The pre-assembled Speed Connect drains on bathroom faucets have only four parts, instead of the 14 different parts used with conventional drains. For installation, simply hand-connect and tighten the flexible pop-up cable to the drain. Even better: the drain seals tight the first time and every time, and the lift rod never comes loose or requires adjusting. These Speed Connect drains never get out of alignment and never need adjusting.
The new Marquette bath collection includes widespread and centerset pieces in both mid and high spout versions, a J-spout centerset and a single handle shower faucet. The new España single-control bathroom faucet features the distinctive Estate Bronze finish, while the sleek Alejandra centerset is offered in a tarnish, scratch and corrosion resistant polished chrome finish.
The collections are currently sold at Home Depot.

Bank robber stashes loot in Lowe’s trash can
A suspected bank robber in Santa Fe, N.M. was arrested this week after a Lowe’s employee uncovered more than $48,000 in stolen cash from a store trash can, according to an article in the Albuquerque Journal.
Jaime Jesus Sanchez-Ramos, age 23, was arrested on April 10 and charges with an April 2 robbery at U.S. Bank. The suspect, who was wearing a green hooded jacket and a ski mask, allegedly entered the building and, at gunpoint, demanded money from a teller. Sanchez-Ramos fled with a box of cash stuffed with $52,650, according an FBI affidavit filed in court.
Later that same day, a Lowe’s employee working at a store two blocks away from the bank said he saw a man "putting something into a trash can" near the parking lot. The employee found "a green hooded jacket wrapped around bundles of cash,” and the money had U.S. Bank wrappers on each cash bundle, according to the affidavit. The total amount recovered from the trash was $48,100.
An FBI spokesman told the newspaper that federal authorities are looking into whether he’s connected to three other Santa Fe bank robberies going back to January.
