Pulaski. lorence's rner "Tina" My granddaughter, Tina Jannazzo, has announced her candidacy for a full term on the Springfield park board in the April 5 election. She is a teacher at Grant Middle School and was appointed to the board in August 2009 to serve out the term of a former tlustee. Recently, we attended a fundraiser in her honor at Alexander's restaurant. A lot of people were present. Sish Kabobs, fresh fruit, tacos were served and Linda had made cup cakes, cookies and candy to go with the Mardi Gras theme, It was a lot of fun and I hope she gets elected. She has some bright ideas for the parks. On the Lighter Side - A 54 year-old woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital. While on the operating table, she had a near death experience. Seeing God, she asked "Is my time up?" God said, "No, you have another 43 years to live." On recovery, and so much time to live, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a face-lift, liposuction, implants and a tummy tuck. She also changed her hair color and brightened her teeth. When released from the hospital, she crossed the street on her way home and was killed by an ambu- lance. Arriving in front of God, she asked, "I thought you said I had another 43 years? Why didn't you pull me from out of the path of the ambulance?" God replied, "I didn't recognize you."
