Pat Glass enjoys her big moment during Thursday's ceremony

 Pat Glass just returned from five days in Las Vegas, but Manatee County’s 2011 Distinguished Citzen, didn’t take in any shows or go near a gaming table the entire time.
Say what?
The beloved former Manatee County commissioner was officially honored Thursday with her own commemorative footsteps in the north sidewalk along the old courthouse.

Brooke James looks more like a hockey player than a T-ball first baseman these days.
The Gene Witt elementary first-grader has lost five teeth, including her upper two in front.
What a great smile!

Mike Suchy gets a big kiss from mom Mary at scholarship signing
Big ups to Southeast Seminole shortstop Mike Suchy, who signed a baseball scholarship Thursday with Florida Gulf Coast University, but will keep an eye on June’s baseball draft.
He’ll participate in pre-draft workouts with the Pirates and Orioles, and has been scouted by the Braves, Giants, Indians, Mariners, Phillies, Rockies and Tigers.

Saturday is the deadline for incoming FSU freshmen from Manatee County high schools to apply for Manatee Seminole Club scholarships, a program now in its 19th year.
Visit for details.
