PERDIDO KEY ROTARY CLUB WINS THEIR FIRST GRANT TO HELP FILL JANE’S CLOSET

 

                Perdido Key Rotary is a small but mighty group of individuals with a passion for serving their community and finding new ways to make an impact.  They took that passion and began to research and create their very first grant proposal in their history as an organization.  While researching they came across Gulf Coast Kid’s House (GCKH) and their volunteer organized closet affectionately known as “Jane’s Closet.”.  GCKH is a child advocacy center assisting victims of child abuse in Escambia County and the closet serves as a home for new and gently used items donated from the community and available to child clients and their family members. 
 
                The Perdido Key Rotary Club members wrote a grant asking for funds to purchase items for the closet and also encouraged the Rotary Foundation to match those funds for a total of $2500.00.  The grant was approved and was presented to Megan Chapman, the Outreach Director for GCKH, at Rotary’s weekly breakfast meeting on July 27th at Triggers.  Special guests Rotary District 6940 Governor, Roger Champion and Assistant Governor, Innes Richards were in attendance.
 
                Some Perdido Key Rotarians and Gulf Coast Kid’s House staff and volunteers will shop to help fill Jane’s Closet during the “tax free weekend” on Friday August 5th at Walmart on Blue Angel Parkway. If you’d like to donate please go to www.gulfcoastkidshouse.org.

Making Sense by Michael Reagan

Donald Trump, the ADHD Candidate

Those of you who regularly read my column know that Donald Trump was not my first choice for the GOP nominee. He was not my second choice either. Rather than belaboring the point, I'm just going to say that while I am not "Never Trump," I am most assuredly "Never Hillary."

That's why I'm going to be voting for Donald Trump in November.

But he doesn't make it easy. Many political experts are wishing Trump were a constitutional conservative. Others are wishing Trump were more open to free trade. While another group wishes he would give some clarity as to his final position on taxes and the economy.

Personally, I think granting those wishes would make Trump a more acceptable candidate to members of the GOP base and a portion of the independent electorate. But rather than focus on policy, I just wish the Almighty would see fit to grant Trump a longer attention span.

A myriad of ills besetting his campaign would be cured if Trump could just focus on just the topic of the day, to say nothing of seeing the big picture as it applies to November.

Instead, Trump is forever stepping on his own campaign message as he goes charging down one rabbit trail after another. These detours into the bush do nothing to help him win and many only serve to make it harder to prevail in November.

The latest is a revenge plot reported by the Washington Examiner that seeks voter vengeance on John Kasich and Ted Cruz.

Kasich sat in his tent on Achilles Avenue during the GOP convention that took place in his own state! He refused to either endorse Trump ---- in violation of the fealty pledge he was eager to foist on Trump earlier in the campaign ---- and he refused to darken the door at the convention.

Cruz' offense was making a primetime speech at the convention where he refused to endorse Trump.

Of the two, Trump has more reason to be unhappy with Kasich and less with Cruz. Kasich just appears to be a sore loser and his petulant refusal to get on the Trump train does nothing to help him in the future.

Cruz said he refused to endorse Trump ---- which should not have come as a surprise to the Trump campaign, if they didn't know exactly what Cruz was going to say before he said it, they have no business running for president ---- because Trump insulted his wife and accused his father of being part of the JFK assassination plot.

So Trump is now offended. I say join the club.

But when The Donald is offended he evidently can't focus on anything else. Now, Trump says he's going to personally fund a Super PAC designed solely to make sure Kasich and Cruz lose their next election. He claims he's ready to write a check for $20 million to get revenge.

All this does is make Trump look very small and very petty. Who wants to vote for a sore winner?

Worse, it distracts Trump and the media from focusing on his plans to defeat Hillary.

Please, Donald, forget about Cruz and Kasich and concentrate on the campaign against Hillary. Leave the getting even to the interns.
