Detectives with the Lake County sheriff’s Special Investigations Bureau, along with the City/County Investigative Bureau (comprised of the Eustis, Clermont, and Leesburg Police Departments), just concluded a two-day undercover sting operation targeting those who sell alcoholic beverages to underage consumers. Detectives used underage, undercover buyers as they visited various locations throughout the entire county this week.

A total of 106 businesses were visited during the operation, 20 of which sold to the underaged buyer. The types of businesses visited include convenience stores, liquor stores, supermarkets, and even some restaurants. Detectives charged all violators through criminal citations.

Attached are two separate lists, one that shows businesses that properly checked for identification and the other showing those that violated the law (click on the icons below). Continue reading


The Lake County Sheriff’s Office arranged for 20 employees to be trained for a new program introduced earlier this year by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The new initiative, called the Warrant Service Officer Program, was created by ICE to delegate immigration enforcement authority to local sheriff’s employees to allow those employees to execute ICE arrest warrants in local jails.

The training took place recently at the Lake County Jail, during which 18 correctional officers and 2 deputies assigned to the sheriff’s Warrants unit were certified to execute the warrants.

Once a certified officer executes a warrant in the jail on behalf of ICE, the Sheriff’s Office has 48 hours to transfer custody of the inmate. If ICE doesn’t take the illegal alien into custody within that 48 hours, the individual must be released.

This program serves to broaden ICE’s enforcement authority and allows for a smooth custodial transfer of criminal aliens to ICE custody.

“This new program gives us an additional tool that we can use to help ICE remove criminal illegal aliens from our jail, rather than putting them back in our communities to commit more crimes,” Lake County Sheriff Peyton Grinnell said. “This partnership is win-win; it helps ICE do their job, and helps us do ours,” he added.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is also a Basic Ordering Agreement partner with ICE.

Trump visits the Villages campaign-style. Trump  is “under siege” and so is Medicare. The Democrats want their own version of National Health Care. Trump is trying to stop the Left from changing our private insurers programs. This is America we the people should have the liberty to choose our own insurance. Trump signed an executive order status quo for Medicare, preserving as is, especially private insurers Medicare Advantage plan. The by invitation only!

Trump says ”These people on the Left are crazy. They want to take private Healthcare  away and give you lousy health care. We are making your Medicare even better and we’re not letting anyone take away from you, as long as I am President”. Continue reading

Pictured is over 50 business people at a Nothing But Networking event put on by the Lady Lake Chamber. I take pictures every month and enjoy the feedback. One business man said his wife wanted him to throw out a few of the old papers. He proclaimed how can I throw away a paper with my picture in it??? I enjoy those comments. The group filled out a questionnaire that I had and we gave away a Dinner for Two at Texas Road House. Here is another good reason not to throw last month’s paper away. It has a coupon in it good for a free Cactus Blossom with your meal. The ad is good till 12-31-19. So take your significant other to dinner and treat them to a free Cactus Blossom.

I am honored to return to the Lady Lake Area Chamber of Commerce as the Executive Director. My husband’s name is Joshua. He is in Sales and Design at Gingerich Construction.

I spent time over the last year learning new things and growing professionally, and I’m excited for the future. I previously worked four years as the marketing director for the chamber and I’m ready to nurture relationships with our members, and bring new ideas to the table.

My husband and I met in Daytona Beach in 2003.  We have a very active lifestyle and enjoy boating, spending time with family, and renovating our home. We are the proud parents of a spunky little Boston Terrier and foster Bostons through a rescue.

I hope that you or a member of your business will join us for an upcoming event or expo! Make sure to check your inbox on Tuesday to see all that is happening at your chamber.  I look forward to serving as your director and please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
