Manatee Hurricane bound for Defiance College

Big ups to Manatee Hurricane Garrett Waiters, who has committed to Defiance College, a Division III program in Defiance, Ohio.
Located in northwest Ohio, the school was founded in 1850.
The MHS senior played left guard for coach Joe Kinnan’s 2011 Class 7A state football champions and is a pitcher/first baseman for coach Dwayne Strong’s baseball team.
Cheers from proud parents Frank and Kathy, brother Chris and the rest of Team Waiters extended family.

A bow to Henry Lawrence, new Florida Sports Hall of Fame inductee.

Don’t miss the Manatee Patchworkers Quilt Show, "Quilting By The River," 9 a.m.-5 p.m. today and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at State College of Florida’s gymnasium building No. 17, 5840 26th St. W., Bradenton.
Proceeds helped to provide funding "Quilts for Cruisers," a program that has provided 300-plus quilts to law enforcement to distribute to children.
Visit for details.

My man Terry Wilson is retiring after 31 years with the City of Bradenton fire department.
