  • I wish you could walk in my shoes.

    I’m talking about my Skechers round-toed EZ Flex 2 Sweetpea slip-ons with the softest, most cushiony memory foam footbeds that feel like I’m walking on pillows.

    I have three pairs — black, gray and powder blue. Today I’m wearing the powder blue ones.

    They are the most comfortable shoes I own and quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I may have ever worn before in my entire life.

  • It’s time to celebrate summer at Rock the Park tonight from 5 to 9 p.m at Liberty Park for Citrus County Schools. This event is designed especially for students from 12 to 18 years old.

    Sound Clash will be a battle between DJ Trae Vance and DJ Redbeard to see who gets the crowd the loudest. Get ready for a night of clean fun with dance contests, food trucks, a Rip-Roarin’ Game Rig, a mobile video truck, face painting and photo booth.
