In this photo taken on Monday, Oct. 20, 2014, James Tully, of Canadensis, Pa., poses for a photo. The northeastern Pennsylvania man says he’s been stopped at least 20 times by authorities who have mistaken him as Eric Frein, the suspect in a trooper’s killing. Tully walks to work through the rural search area because he doesn’t own a car. He also wears a backpack, an item police believe Frein has also carried. (AP Photo/Pocono Record, Beth Brelje) MANDATORY CREDITCANADENSIS, Pa. (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania resident said he's been stopped and questioned more than 20 times by authorities who have mistaken him for a man sought in the killing of a state trooper, including one encounter at gunpoint that left him fearing for his life.

Chiquita bananas for sale inside Washington, DC's Eastern Market, July 31, 2009Brazilian bidders upped their offer Thursday for banana giant Chiquita Brands ahead of a Chiquita shareholder vote on whether it should instead merge with European rival Fyffes. Juice exporter Cutrale Group and investment bank Safra Group raised their previous cash offer for Chiquita by 50 cents to $14.50 a share, valuing the company at $682 million. The two argued that the new bid was worth 20 percent more to shareholders than the current value of a Chiquita-Fyffes merger, which would create the world's largest distributor of bananas and other fruits. Chiquita, which rejected the Brazilian duo's earlier bid, said it would weigh the increased offer even as it heads to Friday's shareholder vote on the Fyffes merger.
