______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Shaquille O’Neal Clemons, 21, Largo, Floriduh Largo man named ‘Shaquille O’Neal’ crashed car, stole veteran's wheelchair during police chase A Largo man, whose name is similar to that of a retired NBA star, is accused of stealing a disabled veteran’s wheelchair to get away from police after he crashed his car during a chase. Largo police say Shaquille O’Neal Clemons, age 21, tried to flee from officers on Oct. 25. Robert Druce, a veteran, witnessed the crash. He attempted to help Clemons, not knowing that was who police were looking for. Druce offered Clemons his wheelchair. “Saw the big wreck and then saw a guy helping a guy out of the car. His leg was broken or something. He fell down in the street, and I let him sit on my chair so he could drive up to the front by the store, so he could sit down on the sidewalk and not be laying in the street,” Druce said. “All of a sudden, I’m chasing my chair down the street.” Instead, Clemons tried to roll away to escape. “I couldn’t catch him,” Druce said. Officers say Clemons was driving a White Mercedes 250 near the area of 36th Street and Melody Lane by East Bay Drive. They tried to pull him over, but police say Clemons took off eastbound on East Bay Drive and then sideswiped a white car and a school bus. There were no kids on the bus. Detectives say Clemons then drove southbound on Belcher Road, where he crashed into two more vehicles at the intersection at Ulmerton Road. “It was pretty crazy. I didn’t even hear it really, until I was looking outside the window and seen everything,” Nina Peralta said. Peralta shot video of the crash on her phone. “I just remember seeing trucks everywhere and cars and police everywhere,” she said. Police say Clemons got into the wheelchair and then headed east on Ulmerton Road, trying to get away from officers. Druce, who suffered a stroke a year ago, says he tried to go after Clemons, but was too weak. A Pinellas Park police officer was in the area and was able to stop Clemons a few blocks away from the crash scene. Druce was able to get his chair back. “No good deed goes unpunished,” he said. One person involved in the crash was critically injured. Clemons was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended or revoked license, reckless driving with property damage and injury, and leaving the scene of a crash with property damage and injury. He has previously been arrested for fleeing and eluding, possession of hydromorphone hydrochloride, possession of marijuana, fleeing and eluding, and violation of probation for aggravated battery. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Fran Re: How do you catch Mis-spellings in spam Dear Webby, Yes, I too have seen all those mif-sbellinks in spam sneaking past my filters. How do I sto that? Fran Dear Fran In MailWasher you can use Regular Expressions. A handy one is the "OR" symbol: | You can for example tell it to look IN THE BODY (pull down selection), then in the second pull down select CONTAINS and then in the content put Vigor|vigar|vogir|vugor and so on. Every time one slips through, look what word they use, and add it. That of course is just one of almost a hundred operators you can use. In the second line you can select the FROM line, in the second selector pull down to BUT NOT IF and put gramma's address into the content part, and a pipe | and humor@webby.com as the second address. So, if any of the naughty words exist in the body, but the FROM address is NOT gramma's address, then it triggers the filter. You can selct what it does with that mail, for example delete it automatically, without even bothering to show it in the list. Until you get comfortable with making filters you can tell it to just flag it for deleting and give you the option to see if your filter is maybe too radical. After a while crafting good filters becomes a game. With MailWasher YOU will win every time. Have FUN! DearWebby A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that he had just met the woman of his dreams and wanted to know what he should do next. His mother suggested, "Why don't you send her flowers, and on the card invite her to your place for a home-cooked meal?" He thought this was a great idea and arranged a date for the next weekend. His mother called the day after the big date to see how things had gone. He moaned, "Oh, mom, the evening was a complete disaster." His mother said, "Why, didn't she come over?" And the young man said, "Oh, she came over, but she can't cook either."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Find Hidden Places to Store Things By Sandi/Poor But Proud [541 Posts, 2,300 Comments] If you have a door you seldom close like I do or even if you do close it, you can often find hidden storage places. I did this today to keep all my crochet thread and ribbon. I love shoe bags and this one is especially good as I can see what is in each pouch. Some are plastic, but flimsy, and others are sturdy, but made of solid fabric. This is the best of both. With these in here, I now have an empty tub to put in my storage closet for other things, and I just garnered a 4 square foot space on my floor. Recently, I moved everything home from storage to save $500.00 over the next 12 months. It's been a challenge to find spaces for things, but it's getting done. And if you think I am kidding don't look in the top shelves of all my kitchen cabinets, under my bathroom sink, or under the day bed. Seriously, don't. N-JOY!
