An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Amy Lee Giorgio 30 Gulf Breeze Florida Drunk woman tries hit and run during traffic stop A Gulf Breeze police officer was seriously injured Monday afternoon when he was run over by a motorist during a traffic stop, according to law enforcement officials. About 2 p.m., Sgt. Kerstan Tatro stopped Amy Lee Giorgio, 30, after seeing her driving erratically near the south end of the Pensacola Bay Bridge, Gulf Breeze Chief of Police Robert Randle said. As Tatro was standing by Giorgio's driver's side window speaking to her, he reportedly noticed Giorgio trying to put her Lexus CV into gear. Tatro reached into the window in an attempt to grab her car keys out of the ignition, Randle said. Giorgio accelerated with Tatro still partway in her window, carried him a short distance and ran him over when he fell from the vehicle's side. "I don't know the complete extent of his injuries, but his arm was fractured in the window," Randle said. "It was pretty obviously broken." Tatro was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. His injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, according to Randle. A motorist who saw the incident called 911 and followed Giorgio to the rear parking lot of the Crowne Plaza Pensacola Grande Hotel. The Pensacola Police Department arrived at the parking lot moments later and took Giorgio into custody. Randle said officers found drugs in her possession, and she appeared to be impaired during her arrest. Giorgio was transferred into the custody of the Gulf Breeze Police Department to be transported to Santa Rosa County Jail. Giorgio was previously scheduled for a Jan. 20 trial on charges of possession of cocaine, possession of drug equipment and driving under the influence. She has numerous prior arrests for drug offenses, according to jail records, as well as active warrants in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, according to Randle. By coincidence, one of the people who stopped and ran to help the downed Sgt Tatro was his teenage daughter, screaming 'My dad, thatís my dad' Sgt Tatro is sitting comfortably in hospital with a big cast from armpit to knuckles and expects to get a shorter cast in a week. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bob Re: Windows compatibility warning Good Morning Webby, I got another problem for you to solve. I don't know whether this is Microsoft trying to scare me to use their updates or whether this is a legitimate fact. I have an old SONY VGC-RB30 desktop with XP and SP3.¬ I try to keep it updated but with Microsoft not supporting XP I tried using "Advanced System Care 8.0 PRO " "Drive Booster 2" to update. Part way through the update I get the following message: "The software you are installing has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP". "Continuing your installing of this software may impair or destabilize the correct operation of your system either immediately or in the future. Microsoft strongly recommends that you stop this installation now and contact the software vendor for software that has passed Windows Logo testing." Depending upon your advice (which I always follow because I trust you) will determine whether I call the vendor or continue with the update. I plan to buy a new computer when Windows 10 becomes available as my SONY is between 5 to 10 years old. Thank you for your advice, Daily Voter, Bob Dear Bob A lot of Microsoft stuff does not have the requirements to pass the Logo standard. Skype is one example. It used to be compatible, but a couple of years after they bought it for 8 Billion dollars, they screwed it up and it is no longer Windows compatible. DUH! I would ignore that thilly fear mongering BS. If you do want to get free XP updates until 2019, read this: Free Windows XP updates until 2019 As long as you have McAfee and Malwarebytes you are safe, and don't really have to worry about XP updates. Have FUN!

You can find a whole pound of it for about $2.50 at little shops or places that sell in bulk and you use it a tablespoon at a time - it lasts for months in the refrigerator. There are plenty of sites on the internet that will walk you through the process of making bread. The finished product will taste better than anything you can buy in the store, and will cost less than the most marked down loaf on the shelf.

The second can be his nose."
