It is awkward typing 2017.
Don’t forget the Odd Fellows breakfast Sunday, January 8th.
There was an accident on Orange Blossom Road last week. Two girls in a truck took the curve in the 14000 block too fast and overturned into the water filled ditch. Lucky for them Spencer Shook and partner Chris heard the crash and went to see what happened. They looked up and down but couldn’t find them (deep in the ditch) until a girl honked the horn. She climbed out but the other girl was hanging upside down with head in the water. Spencer climbed down, on the hot bottom of the truck then the very cold water of the ditch. He tried and tried to get to the girl. Chris had to come down and together they got her out. 911 had been called and soon arrived. Lucky for the girls they got out alive!
