Gun toting stripper Lee Grace Dougherty still on the lam
A thrill-seeking Florida stripper Lee Grace Dougherty and her AK-47-wielding brothers went on a multistate crime spree yesterday even ignoring their heartsick mother's plea to give themselves up.
Dougherty's mom made her appeal after the FBI launched a nationwide manhunt for alleged "Dougherty Gang" bank robbers Lee Grace Dougherty, a 26-year-old stripper; her brother Ryan Dougherty, 21; and their half-brother, Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26. The "Dougherty Gang" has been on a multistate crime spree since last Tuesday, when the group allegedly opened fire on a Zephyrhills, Fla., Police officer who was looking to chase down their white Subaru for speeding. The officer was not hurt, but one of the 20 bullets they unleashed on shot out one of his tires and effectively ended the chase.
The same day the Doughertys turned up about 200 miles away at a Georgia bank.All three,were masked and armed with AK-47s, shot up the bank ceiling before making off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The ring leader Lee Grace who works as a stripper at Cheaters in Cocoa Beach had been wanted by police on a probation violation.The FBI believes the trio first tried to flee the highway cop because of Ryan Dougherty, who was sentenced Aug. 1 to 12 years of probation for "sexting" 400 explicit text messages to an 11-year-old girl he met on MySpace.
Lee Grace has previously boasted of her penchant for wreaking havoc, particularly with her brothers. "I love to farm and shoot guys and wreck cars," she wrote on her Flickr.com profile page. "I'm a redneck and proud of it, I like causing mayhem with my siblings."
A police search turned up an abandoned home that Dougherty trio had recently shared turned up an expansive underground bunker, believed to have a been a place to stockpile weapons . "I don't think this will end happily," said Lee Grace's fiancé of seven months, college math teacher Brendon Bookman.
At age 15, Luis Castillo lived the dream, Castillo was a batboy for the New York Yankees from 1998 until 2005 .Castillo ran errands for A-Rod, caught warm-up pitches with Andy Pettitte and David Cone, and partied with Ruben Sierra. In those days batboys did not have to sign confidentiality agreement. Which leads us to his new memoir, "Clubhouse Confidential." were Castillo divulges Yankee player secrets.
Opening Day 1998 was his first day on the job , Castillo says he didn't know what to expect. he quickly learned that the tradition is that every bat boy gets a nickname from Derek Jeter himself . Castillo says that Jeter was easygoing ,joked a lot ,and teased everyone as a way to bond with his fellow team mates.
Castillo claims that Jeter and some of the players were terrific tippers. Roger Clemens would tip $3,000 at the end of the year. Posada gave him $7,000. A-Rod kicked in $1,400. A sizable amount, but when A-Rod found out that other players were tipping more, he bumped his tips up. Making sure he was the best tipper in the league. Castillo says A-Rod tipped $100 a week to make sure there was a creatine shake waiting for him after each home game.
One day, President Clinton walked into the clubhouse with four Secret Service agents. Players were being polite as hell with him until Jeter in full uniform, on the way out to the field paused just long enough to say: "Hey, Mr. President, you staying out of trouble?"
Castillo says that stadium operations, used a "Red Alert." system when owner George Steinbrenner arrived.Manager of Stadium Operations would punch in a special code into the walkie -talkie system and the word would spread like wild fire. Casitillo describes the lave hate relationship the team had with Steinbrenner and players like David Cone would often rib the over protective owner.
Despite Steinbrenners penchant to micro manage the team Joe Torre never let it interfere with his game .Torre would say , "This is what the Boss wants, but this is what we're going to do." Torre was usually focused no matter what the situation and kept his nose to the grindstone. The only one thing that ever distracted him from work, was the pony's and Torre would often have the OTB channel on his TV in his office.
Cycling in and around town I have picked up a couple of tips I want to pass on
Ridgewood NJ - Cycling in and around town I have picked up three tips I want to pass on;
First cyclists and drivers look at the road from two entirely different perspectives ; the cyclist is connected by every nuance , bump ,lawn sprinkler , pot hole and road condition while the drivers perspective is much farther removed. Cyclist often look to avoid road hazards that drivers hardly notice.
Next a cyclist must be extremely vigilant. No amount of safety gear can stand up to the impact of a 3000 pound automobile.This makes vigilance the single most important safety feature for the cyclist. Always remember it is up the rider to protect themselves. anticipate and be on the defensive.
And finally wear extremely bright clothing. Don't underestimate how difficult it can be for a driver to see you .The brighter the better . It helps the driver notice you sooner. ,and makes you a more visible target . A couple of seconds can be the difference between a trip to the corner store and a trip to the emergency room .
Sook Pastry the taste test Sook Pastry a European style cafe that opened about four months ago at 24 South Broad Street. I know it took awhile but I finally got there.They seem to have found their groove already with their offerings of sandwiches, salads, crepes, Illy coffees which is a home run in my book and of coarse loads of delicious PASTRIES!
One is overwhelmed by the subtle smell of fresh cooked pastries as soon as you walk in The shelves are packed with a perfectly balanced color pallet of beautiful strawberry, chocolate and lemon delights just begging to be brought home.
I ordered a large cappuccino which was delicious not too hot or too cold and just the right amount of foam .After some though I settled on a Napoleon which was very creamy ,and not too sweet with a cake style crust . It was spot on . Other patrons told em they were very big fans of the multicolored Macarons.
The shop is very clean with a modern decor yet still very comfortable. Service was excellent and the staff was very friendly . They also have some very impressive looking cakes which would take any dinner party over the top for desert. My suggestion to defiantly give it a try .
