1 // A wild monkey was recently spotted atop the roof of The Villages Elementary School of Lady Lake. Noticing that the animal seemed to have an angry demeanor, students appropriately named it “Furious George.”
2 // Lake County’s longstanding penny sales tax passed by receiving 71 percent of the vote during an election in November. It’s about time Lake County voters banded together and made some cents; however, opponents won’t get the “change” they desired.
3 // A hilarious tribute to the change of life, “Menopause the Musical: The Survivor Tour” was recently presented at the Clermont Performing Arts Center. Audiences praised the show for its comedic brilliance, but some were disappointed that it was over in a flash.
4 // Leesburg Fire Rescue recently extinguished a fire inside a restroom at Venetian Gardens. Apparently, the suspect lit a large roll of paper towels. The fact that the arsonist committed this cowardly act in a public restroom is a clear sign that his life is going down the crapper.
5 // Lake County’s mandatory seasonal watering restrictions are in effect until March 13. Tread lightly, because if you don’t follow rules and regulations you’ll be in deep water.
6 // A Lake County woman is facing charges after arriving at a local elementary school drunk to pick up her children. Much like a bottle of Corona, she appears to be empty from the neck up.
