Americans hope that President Trump and his team can resolve the North Korean tension. Nobody wants anyplace in America to be struck by an atomic or hydrogen bomb. We are not totally clear on what North Korea can do with a missile but it is growing clearer their program has advanced and growing stronger almost day by day. Although few people seem to believe North Korea has a hydrogen bomb.
We were blindsided by Japan December 7, 1941 when they attacked Pearl Harbor. The Japanese killed 2,335 servicemen. An additional 1,143 were wounded. They attacked us for 110 minutes from 7:55 a.m. until 9:45 a.m. Hundreds of Japanese planes sank or damaged 21 warships and destroyed more than 150 planes on nearby airfields. That was a horrendous day in our history that we never want repeated.
Special to the Lehigh Acres Gazette from Pixxie, the Publix pet:
We pets don’t need a face full of teeth to show how much we love you. We just wag our tails or meow like we had one too many treats. You can tell when we’re happy. When you pick up the leash or dangle a string and our ears go up—consider that a smile. But, if you want to be literal and see us smile like you silly humans, here are some pet dental tips.
Have your pet’s teeth checked at least once a year by a veterinarian or a board-certified veterinary dentist.
Have your pet checked out if they’re showing any of the following symptoms:
- Bad breath
- Reduced appetite
- Broken/loose teeth
- Bleeding/discolored teeth
- Swelling in the mouth
Keep on smiling,

Dr. Patricia Gregg, the Medical Director of Laboratory for Lehigh Regional Medical Center, is passionate about “doing the right things and doing things right.” Her ongoing work to implement the latest evidence-based guidelines involves a great deal of collaboration between the different departments of this growing community hospital in Lehigh Acres.
Recently, her participation in the College of American Pathologists (CAP) House of Delegates led to an opportunity to participate in the strenuous work of evidence-based guideline development. “So much progress has been made in cancer diagnostic testing and treatment recently, especially in the subset of cancers called lymphomas, that a guideline for optimal handling of specimens from these patients is warranted. This will help ensure that a patient who first presents to a facility where only a few patients with lymphoma are seen can have the same high-quality pathology care as someone who first presents to a higher-volume center,” explains Dr. Gregg.
The evidence-based guideline is being developed through a partnership between the American Society for Clinical Pathology (CAP) and the American Society of Hematology. The interdisciplinary guideline panel will systematically identify and review published evidence to answer key clinical questions for the initial diagnosis of patients with lymphomas. The guideline is expected to be published in early 2019.

A father and his two adult sons love drinking beer together. The two sons start removing the bottle of Miller out of dad’s hand and replacing it with the likes of Sierra Nevada, and Dogfish Head.
The result took the three men deep into the exploration of the world of beer.
Nick the oldest son was in the Army. Jacob the younger son was working in Denver. Mike the dad, was owner of a small business living in Lehigh Acres. Then life changes really took action in 2014. Nick got out of the Army came back to Lehigh. Jacob started a family and thought it would be best to be close to home, moved back to Lehigh Acres. We built a business plan and headed into the brewing business.

The 6th Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees an individual the right to a fair, speedy, and public trial. … These rights are given to all men or women under trial for any sort of wrongdoing.
The presumption of innocence sometimes referred to by the Latin expression ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies), is the principle that one is considered innocent unless proven guilty.
One of the most sacred principles in the American criminal justice system, holding that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty. In other words, the prosecution must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt.
I’m asking all to stop these character assassinations on me and my family. You do not know all the facts, only what the liberal media is telling you.
