The Hit List

  • Special Adventures for Special People provides scuba therapy for special needs children and adults in Lake County. The Clermont-based program is held inside the National Training Center’s Scuba Gym. If nothing else, a scuba program should help them learn to avoid pier pressure. 
  • Thanks to hot temperatures in Lake County and across Central Florida, NASA developed an app to help people identify different types of mosquitoes and learn what diseases they can transmit. Do I really need an app to combat mosquitoes? Can’t I just call the SWAT team?
  • Two men mowing the lawn at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness in Groveland had to fight off two other men determined to steal their mowers. Come on, people. Let’s have a little lawn and order around here.
  • The city of Tavares made a deal to bring in the “Polar Express” Train Ride from Warner Bros. The train will run on weekends during the Christmas season. Let’s hope this plan stays on track; otherwise it will be derailed.
  • A Fruitland Park man who consumed 16 beers was arrested after breaking his wife’s eyeglasses during an altercation. I’d say he made quite a spectacle of himself.
  • Chicago Cubs’ fans in The Villages are forming a new club called Cubs’ World. Considering Chicago won the World Series in 2016, I’d say the club will be a big hit.
