    Default Pastor Nick wants his money back

    Have we become a nation of cowards?




    'Suspicious' package turns out to be donation for Seminole County church

    Deputies say someone left the cardboard box with at least $3,000 on church doorstep near Lake Mary.

    May 08, 2010|By Susan Jacobson, Orlando Sentinel
    Here's how suspicious we've become in the post- 9/11 world.
    A cardboard box left at a church near Lake Mary caused the closure of Markham Woods Road while a bomb squad X-rayed it and then blew it up.
    The note on the 40-pound bundle said, simply, "For Pastor Nick." In the old days, someone would have taken it inside and opened it.



    But a church member who found the package on the doorstep about 11 a.m. today thought the corrugated box secured with duct tape might be dangerous.
    He drove it from Master's Touch International Church, 555 Markham Woods Road, to a nearby fire station to have it checked out.
    The Seminole County Sheriff's Office bomb squad couldn't figure out what was inside even after the box was X-rayed.
    So, deputies blew it up.
    "It didn't look normal," sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Cannaday said. "That's all we knew."
    The result: More than $2,500 in paper money was turned into confetti. Four hundred ninety-eight rolled silver dollars remained intact, Cannaday said. The church won't be out any money, though, because the U.S. Treasury will replaced damaged paper money, she said.
    The bills were estimated to be worth $2,500 to $2,700. The silver dollars may be worth more than $1 apiece, depending on their year minted and condition.
    The ordeal was over about 1 p.m., and the road was reopened.
    Although no one was hurt or ever in danger, the Sheriff's Office advises anyone who finds a suspicious package to call law enforcement.
    "Don't attempt to move it," Cannaday said.

    That is why I have my girlfriend open packages I get. Yah never know.
    Their is a war going on down here in Florida over gambling.
    Florida is a gold mine waiting to happen for gambling. $$$$
    The Seminole Indians control all the gambling down here. The mafia controls the offshore gambling ships.
    Can I say mafia on the computer. Yo I am only kidding mob guys
    The senior retirement community of Fla, which is the whole damn state, is begging for legalized gambling.
    A few miles from my house the mob has opened a gambling casino.
    How I "think" they are getting around the rules is by keeping H.Q. offshore.
    So when you gamble in the small casino you are really gambling in the Bahamas or something? Legal offshore gambling so far, they are up and running.
    Now for those who have studied their history. We never signed a peace treaty with the Seminole Indians.
    That wasnt a donation too the church. That was a payoff from the mob too keep the Seminoles form going to war.
    If they start a war. I am for sure going too the roof to watch this show.
    This post is for entertainment purposes only. The author takes no responsibility for it's contents or that the mafia even exists.
