  • Much like a gunslinger, I react quickly giving minimal thought to whatever triggered the reaction. Sometimes it works, most time it explodes in my face. My vision statement is to make quick decisions because waiting means forgetting and things forgotten are seldom remembered. Unfortunately, rapid-fire decision making fails to factor in possible consequences, hence the potential facial detonation.

  • A few years ago, I learned that somewhere in Citrus County Jesus was in a tree.

    Not literally, but a woman had called the newsroom to say she could see an image of Jesus in a tree that was in her yard.

    Lots of people think they see Jesus in stuff. Just Google “things that look like Jesus” and you’ll see photos of the face of Jesus in everything from pieces of toast and cloud formations to slabs of marble or rust stains on the surface of an iron.

    Some items are even for sale on eBay.

    People see Jesus everywhere.

  • The late J. Edgar Hoover, first director of the F.B.I. said, “The cure for crime is not the electric chair, but the high chair.” He obviously understood that the treatment a child receives from the beginning of their life, highly impacts their behavior patterns throughout their life.
