  1. I don’t know anything about that shooting, but glad I wasn’t coming along there at that time. I wonder if anyone is missing their car? A small later model grey Mazda. I know it was a Mazda, because I always call the Mazda emblem, a whale tail, because that is what it looks like….a whale tail sticking up, like out of the the water, sort of, if you know what I mean. I could see the emblem, and I didn’t even have my glasses on, and usually don’t focus too well. We came behind Dream Lake, and saw two cop cars checking the car out. It was sitting on the grassy down slope, and appeared to have flat tires, not sure, as it was grassy. My husband went to get cigs early around eight o’clock this morning, I was still asleep, and he said the car was sitting there then. We figure it was a stolen car, abandoned after being joy-rode, don’t know the story, and probably will never know. I hope you are not missing your car!!!

  2. I wonder why the Bank of America on Main St. was shut down today in Apopka? You couldn’t use the ATMs, and no one was inside, and the doors were locked, and we were told by other customers leaving the front door, they would not reopen until Friday. We drove to Hunt Club Bank America, got in line for the drive thru, and it was all ATMs and no employees. I got my transaction done, but it is all too sad, people replaced by machines. I was at Walmart looking around, and here comes this robot, slowly turning around and moving over to the shelves and for what is what I want to know? I think their goal is to replace all their employees. Seems to me, it is happening everywhere!!!
