| October 11, 2017

cancer free banks

In late September, Kelsey Banks was given her own day at Belle Terre Elementary School. The 4th grader was surprised by principal Terence Culver, Superintendent James Tager and School Board Chairman Trevor Tucker the morning of Se[pt. 29, which was tied to a proclamation announcing September 29, 2017 as “Kelsey Banks’ Day.” Culver praised the 9 year old for her fight in overcoming cancer and celebrating 5 years as cancer free. Kelsey’s brother, Charles presented her with yellow roses. Kelsey’s mother Kerri says “this is a day we’ve been longing to reach since 2010.” Kelsey was diagnosed with pre-B cell acute lymphocytic leukemia when she was just 22 months old. She was in treatment until September 13, 2012, or as Kerri says “until Kelsey was four years, one month and two days old.” Board Chair Tucker praised Kelsey for her fight. He actually coached her on the soccer field. “She’s quiet and unassuming off the field, but I learned you don’t underestimate her once she gets in the game.” (Flagler Schools)

elmore leonard“The way it is here, this town, it goes out in all directions all kinds of shit happening. You know what I mean? Like there’s no special look to the place. Brooklyn, you got streets of houses are all exactly the same. Or Brooklyn in general, you know, has a bummed-out look, it’s old, it’s dirty …. Miami a look you think of stucco, right? Or high-rises on the beacch. Here, wherever you look it’s something different. There homes’ll knock your eyes out, but there’s a lot of cheap shit, too. You know what I mean? Like Times Square. I think the movie business is the same way. There aren’t any rules-you know, anybody saying this’s how you have to do it. What’re movies about? They’re all different, except the ones that’re just like other movies that made money. You know what I’m saying? The movie business, you can do any fuckin thing you want ’cause there’s nobody in charge.”

–Elmore Leonard, from “Get Shorty” (1990).

    We need stricter fireworks laws, not weaker ones. People danger, fire danger, traumatizes our pets.

    Senator Steube should not be in office. He does not represent the wishes of his constituents – in Sarasota or the rest of the state.
