Funeral for officer killed in Obama motorcade

Copyright The Associated Press

Funeral services are being held for an officer who died while leading President Barack Obama's motorcade.

More than a thousand police officers from across Florida and from Georgia, Virginia and Washington, D.C., are expected to participate Friday in services
for Bruce St. Laurent. He died after being hit by a pickup truck Sunday while attempting to shut down a stretch of Interstate 95 in West Palm Beach, where
Obama was traveling for a campaign stop.
 
The funeral is being held at Christ Fellowship North Campus in Palm Beach Gardens, followed by burial in Tequesta.
 
Gov. Rick Scott has ordered some flags at half-staff in St. Laurent's honor, and the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is to be illuminated in blue.

  • Kerry Spencer has an annual Christmas tradition that brings a smile to the faces of her family members, and this year, the public is getting in on the laughs. Spencer, of Parkton, Maryland, every year shares a photo of her son, Samuel, sitting on Santa’s lap at a mall in Provo, Utah. What’s unique about Samuel’s visit with Santa 12 years ago is that he wasn’t crying, and he wasn’t telling the big guy what he wanted for Christmas. “We taught our baby sign language,” Spencer wrote in a Dec. 5 Twitter post. “This is the sign for ‘help.’ You’re welcome.” In the photo, a very authentic-looking Santa smiles for the camera while a solemn-looking, 1-year-old Samuel averts his eyes. His chubby little toddler hands are making the American Sign Language (ASL) sign for “help,” or as close to it as he can get. Mashable reported that Spencer, whose Facebook profile states that she is a faculty member at Stevenson University, taught both of her children ASL. “We taught both our kids baby sign (language) because they can sign before they talk and it is so very useful to be able to communicate with your baby,” Spencer said.  Spencer said she shares the photo each year on Facebook, but this year, her friend, author Mette Harrison, asked her to tweet it so she could retweet it to her own followers. As of Monday morning, the tweet had more than 25,000 likes and had been shared close to 6,700 times.  Some of the reactions to the photo were nearly as funny as the photo itself.  “Wonder what my son was trying to say,” one Twitter user wrote above a photo of a little boy showing Santa his middle finger, with Santa looking on with great interest. “Something boss. I can tell,” Spencer responded. “This is how I signed ‘help,” another woman wrote, sharing a photo of herself as a child, screaming on Santa’s lap and desperately trying to get away. “That works, too,” Spencer wrote. Other commenters pointed out that Samuel’s technique wasn’t quite right.  “It’s ASL baby sign,” Spencer wrote in response. “Like with spoken language, certain words are ‘mispronounced’ by babies learning them.” She posted an image of the ASL sign for comparison.  Overall, people found the photo as hilarious as Spencer and her family do. Samuel, now 13, even got in on the Twitter action. “I happen to be the baby in this photo,” he tweeted. “You may direct all likes and follows to me now.” “You’re a big boy now,” his mom responded. “You got that right, Hun,” Samuel wrote.  Spencer said the entire family laughs at the photo each year. “Posting it is one of our favorite family traditions,” she said, according to Mashable. 
  • A Florida couple has been arrested after police said they rented a trailer and left a child there alone for months, police said. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said that the boy, whose age was not released, was left at the trailer for about two months until Jennifer Nichols and Joshua Sanders were arrested in November, The Pensacola News Journal reported. >> Read more trending news The woman who leased the trailer to Nichols and Sanders said they made the rental agreement in September, but she told the Sheriff’s Office of the alleged neglect when it became obvious that only the child lived in the residence. The woman said she tried to care for the child, but told the couple that they either had to move into the trailer or move the child to a place where he would be cared for. The landlord said that Sanders told her that it was not a problem as long as the rent was paid, The Journal News reported. The child told police that the couple would leave him a small amount of money and a few meals. He wasn’t able to contact them. The boy was also not attending school and had several cases with Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), but no caseworkers could be named. He has since been removed from the trailer and placed in DCF custody, The Journal News reported.  Nichols and Sanders were both being held at the Escambia County Jail.
