James Combs’ The Hit List, September 2016

James Combs' THE HIT LIST

1 // This month marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11. With that in mind, I wrote a short message to Osama bin Laden … to the tune of Bon Jovi’s hit song “Shot Through the Heart.”

“Shot through the head
And terrorists are so lame.
Osama you give Islam
A bad name.”

2 // A poker room recently opened in Summerfield. Oxford Downs features 24 tables that offer Texas Hold ‘em, seven-card stud, and other poker games. Is building a poker room worth the gamble? You bet!

3 // The City of Eustis recently opened a $656,000 splash pad. With sweat dripping down their faces in the sizzling summer heat, children agreed that the splash pad is definitely a cool idea.

4 // A mother, as well as her two daughters and son, were charged with retail theft after they sped away from Wal-Mart in Leesburg with a push lawnmower and a vehicle battery. There’s value in teaching your children about discount shopping, but this is ridiculous! Much like these thieves, crime doesn’t pay.

5 // Located on a remote farm in Clermont, Florida Sun Grown Cigars opened in July. The owners grow the tobacco used in the Corona Cigar Company’s line of cigars. The cigars taste wonderful, but try not to flick ashes anywhere near your shirt. You don’t want to make an ash-hole of yourself.

6 // A Leesburg man who lives in a gated community ran over and killed a sandhill crane with his golf cart. He told a witness he did it because the bird was “messing up the golf course.” I definitely think there’s some “fowl” play involved here.
