Over 50 enthusiastic supporters joined Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch to help hand out his campaign brochures recently. They distributed literature at the voters' front door from Burnt Store Road to Rotonda.


Recently, members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart Jack L. Conway Chapter 759 traveled to Tampa and Bay Pines to deliver $1,000 checks to the Fisher Houses at the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital and the Bay Pines Veterans Hospital. Pictured are Chuck Rose Sr., vice commander; Art McGinnis, commander; Bob Conetta, finance officer; and John Ross presenting the check to Paula Welenc, manager of James Haley Fisher House.

The judges and audience were moved by Juli Riley’s rendition of her real life battle with cancer performed with her partner, Eddie Perez. The pair took first place as well as the People’s Choice award for their dance number at the 2014 Dancing with the Charlotte Stars show.
