Heather Hills neighbors rally 'round disabled couple

The Lockwoods try out their new golf cart.
Heather Hills Estates came to the rescue for Susie and Henry Lockwood, the disabled couple whose golf cart was stolen recently.
Fellow residents chipped in, along with mobile home park owners Chris and Rick Stephens, and bought them another one.
The couple received the golf cart at an emotional presentation last Saturday morning.
“My sister came and said she was taking us shopping, so it really was a surprise,” Susie Lockwood said. “We’re going to send out thank you cards to everybody.”
Not necessary.
“The Good Samaritan didn’t walk by the injured man, but stopped and took care of him,” resident Vi Brunner said. “So have the residents of Heather Hills Estates.”
“A very happy ending,” resident Jan Gorsuch said.

Future Florida Gator Lauren Pierce, competing for KC & the Sunshine Dancers, took first place with her solo ballet at the Edge National Talent Competition in Winter Springs.
