    The sign at the Shell gas station at 1001 S.R. 434 in Longwood read $3.39 a gallon at 6:30am this morning. That was not the case 30 minutes later when customers received ten free gallons of gas. Shell and Winn-Dixie partnered up to offer the free gas as a promotion for their “fuel perks” program. The program allows customers of Winn-Dixie to save up to 5 cents per gallon of gas for every $50 they spend on groceries. The customers who began lining up around 6 a.m. we’re just happy to receive the help in this tough economy. “I was driving to work in the other direction, and I turned around and broke every speed record to get here in time for the gas.” said Sydney Jones.   The free gas promotion lasted until 8:30a.m. this morning.

  • Florida authorities say Casey Anthony has reported to begin her one-year probation for 2010 check-fraud convictions.   The Florida Department of Corrections said she came in sometime Wednesday evening but did not give details including where in the state she is.   The Orlando woman has been out of sight since being acquitted last month of killing her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Afterward, she had received death threats from those who followed the much-scrutinized case.   A Florida appeals court on Tuesday denied a request that would have stopped her from being forced to start the probation by the end of the week.   Anthony's attorneys had argued she already had completed the probation sentence in jail while she was awaiting her murder trial in Caylee's 2008 death. The Associated Press contributed to this story.

The other three workers were taken to a local urgent care facility. All were conscious and alert.  Guests leaving the park told sister station WFTV that they were warned to take cover and then said they heard a loud crash of thunder.

The PSA was released this week as a way of trying to change behaviors that seem to play out over and over.  “The mass shootings.

  • A 93-year-old Eustis woman was in jail Wednesday night after being arrested for allegedly refusing to leave her home at National Church Residences’ Franklin House after being evicted, police said. >> Read more trending news Juanita Fitzgerald was jailed just days before her 94th birthday on Friday. According to a Eustis Police Department arrest report, Fitzgerald had been “made well aware the day prior of her being evicted (Tuesday).” She was being evicted after falling behind on her rent, police said. When officers arrived at the senior living facility in the 2400 block of Kurt Street, Fitzgerald was in the lobby. “After several times telling Juanita to get her belongings and leave, she refused officers’ commands and stated, ‘Unless you carry me out of here, I’m not going anywhere,’” the report said. Fitzgerald was warned that she would be arrested if she did not leave, but continued to refuse to move. “Juanita still did not listen and refused to leave, stating again to ‘carry me out of here,’” the report said. The 5-foot-tall, 100-pound woman purposefully slid onto the floor as officers tried to escort her from the building and allegedly resisted officers’ attempts to lift her up, investigators said. Fitzgerald was eventually escorted to an officer’s patrol vehicle and taken to the Lake County Jail. The officer noted that due to her age and possibility of injury, Fitzgerald was not handcuffed. The Eustice police report said that Franklin House staff offered to help her move, but she refused. She also refused assistance from the Department of Children and Families, The Homeless Coalition, Department of Elder Affairs and eight other agencies, officers said. Fitzgerald was being held at the Lake County Jail in lieu of a $500 bond on a charge of trespassing.
