The Hit List

  1. Since moving to Leesburg with his mother in 2016, a 13-year-old boy has been repeatedly charged with vehicle theft. Son, put the brakes on this reckless lifestyle; otherwise, you’re steering yourself down a dangerous path.
  2. A Eustis bar owner was arrested after allowing patrons to use illegal slot machines inside her business. What are the odds that she’ll learn her lesson? Wanna bet?
  3. In August, the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension in Lake County offered a program called “Creature Cuisine.” It explained how Americans are including insects in their diet. Will this trend expand to restaurants? I think I’d get spooked if a waitress asked me, “Would you like flies with that?”
  4. A serial flasher who eluded law enforcement for months was finally arrested after exposing himself to two women near popular Clermont stores. I’d say this arrest should put an end to his perverted “hobby.” Who knows, though? He may stick it out for at least another year.
  5. A Lake County football coach has been suspended for illegally recruiting players from other county high schools. School administrators should kick him to the curb…no punt intended.
  6. Treadwell Nursery in Eustis has been given the green light to start growing medical marijuana. It would be funny if the owners put up a big sign outside their nursery that reads: “Please keep off the grass.”
