  • Our family was at the Martin County Fair in Stuart where country star John Anderson was playing that night.

    While waiting in line for the concert, a young lady said to come with her and took us to a tent behind the stage and said Mr. Anderson would be out momentarily.

    There was a large table of food and we were told to help ourselves, which our four-year-old son John promptly did.

    When Mr. Anderson walked up, our son's face was smeared with strawberries and Anderson laughed, stooped down and asked his name.

  • I encountered a celebrity while at a concert in Orlando. My boyfriend, Tyler Hart, and I went to see a band called Circa Survive play at a local club. During the show, my boyfriend lifted me up above the crowd and they proceeded to shove me onstage while the band was playing. I rolled over to stand up and was face to face with the lead singer, Anthony Green.

    I tried to say something but I was too astonished to even utter a word. I touched his arm and then the security guard grabbed me and guided me backstage. I was definitely star-struck.

    Fair Yard Sale

  • Alysia Gabel was too young to remember most of what happened on that April day in 2001.

    Just 2 1/2 years old, Gabel was a passenger in a pickup truck driven by an aunt. She was in the process of making a turn on Suwannee Road in Old Town. The three-wheeler in the bed shifted, causing the truck to roll.

    Little Alysia was tossed from the vehicle. The injuries were life threatening.

    "She remembers the helicopter,"said her father, Shawn. "That's about all."
