Burglary At Home On Bayshore
Chip and Sandra Allen of Bayshore Dr had their home burglarized by unknown persons sometime during the last week of August. The pond man was there to service their water feature and noticed their doors were open. Upon inspection, it was obvious that the home had been entered. The police are investigating and have several very good leads to follow-up on. Hopefully, the criminals will be caught soon.
If You See Something, Say Something
Please be watchful in your immediate neighborhood for any activity that looks out of place or strange. If you see anything, don't hesitate to call the police and report the activity. You may prevent the same thing from happening to yourself or your neighbor. We all should be concerned that anyone would burglarize a house in our community and we need to be vigilant to make sure that it doesn't happen again!
Severe Weather at Dixie Shores
Sunday afternoon brought a lot of potentially dangerous weather to the tranquil shores of Dixie Shores. I personally witnessed a small twister in the air right across Dixie Bay that never developed sufficiently to get anywhere near the ground. Noel Thompson (Bayshore Drive) witnessed numerous waterspouts just offshore while she and her husband Greg were boating. Two of her shots are shown below. As you can see, these were fully developed storms and on the water spinning. Glad they stayed offshore and left our community alone!! Good job with the camera Noel!
RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (I.e. It is sunny out today.)
R*Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
There is a new indicator for stroke. Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.
If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.
