1 // A man from south Florida threatened to sue if Lake County commissioners refused to allow him to give a satanic invocation during a recent commission meeting. If commissioners fail to give the devil his due, there may be hell to pay.
2 // During October, the spook-tacular creativity of Lake County residents was on display with handmade scarecrows that lined the streets of downtown Leesburg. A little girl offered to give one of the scarecrows a half-eaten sandwich, failing to realize the scarecrow was already stuffed.
3 // Are you aware that people actually call their local police department whenever Facebook crashes? Get a life. Being popular on Facebook is akin to going to a chess tournament and sitting at the cool people’s table. It means nothing!

5 // A Lake County woman recently won $5 million in a lottery scratch-off game. Next time you get an itch, remember the best place to scratch!
6 // Opponents of Florida’s black bear hunt recently searched wooded areas of Sorrento looking for orphaned cubs. Animal activists referred to the hunt as un-bear-able tragedy, adding some people are grossly misinterpreting the constitution’s right to “bear” arms.
