Helping hands, hearts

Less than a week after Hurricane Irma ripped through South Florida, members of St. Thomas Catholic Church in Quincy spent Saturday collecting items for families in Immokalee affected by the storm.  As soon as they began unloading one vehicle, another pulled up.  By that afternoon, a semi tractor-trailer was filled to the maximum capacity with food, water,Although Huapilla is a student at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, she is also a migrant farmer.  So are her parents.

Bobcats devour opponents

The Munroe baseball team picked up momentum heading into their 2A-District 1 tournament this week.  The Bobcats won three games last week with wins over Wewahitchka, Altha and Ponce de Leon.
The Bobcats took the lead late in the game in an 11-8 victory over Wewahitchka on Tuesday. The game was tied at seven with Munroe batting in the bottom of the fifth when Matthew Salters doubled, driving in two runs.

Buckwheat’s, a new place in town just opened.
I was close to ecstatic when I realized the second word, (in much smaller print), after “Buckwheat’s,” was “BBQ.”
One of my all-time favorite things to do in this lifetime was to get up early and meet my good friend Joe Faggione for a hearty breakfast of buckwheat pancakes.
Now I search far and wide and cannot find a restaurant that serves those delicious, dark buckwheats.
