THIS WEEK'S DEAR JOHN LETTER!
We are hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year. My whole family is going to join us, except for my younger brother's family. His wife and my wife got in an argument over politics about six months ago. They've both kind of dug in their heels on this. My wife said she would welcome them with open arms and promised to avoid any political talk. My brother said they wanted to stay home this year and claims it has nothing to to with that spat. I feel pressure from the rest of my family over this, especially my older sister. I'm not sure what to do. We've been a pretty close family and this is going to be the first time we have not all been together. Last year we were at my brother's house with everyone else. I feel like we are somehow being blamed for this, but it really has nothing to do with us. Any advice on how to make this Thanksgiving not seem too weird?

A 33-year-old Ocala woman was jailed Thursday morning after a Marion County sheriff’s corporal spotted her vehicle veering across lanes of traffic and a bicycle lane before almost hitting a curb. The corporal stopped a woman named Kristina Leigh Taylor. He reported that Taylor had driven in the bicycle lane before veering to the right and hitting a curb. He also reported that she drove about a quarter of a mile before stopping after he activated his emergency lights. The corporal reported that Taylor “was slow and sluggish to respond and appeared to be in a daze.” After being placed into the back seat of the deputy’s patrol vehicle, Taylor said she “didn’t want to get another charge” and admitted that she had “a sack of weed” between her panties and her pants. After arriving at the Marion County Jail, the deputy, who is a certified drug recognition expert, determined that Taylor was “under the influence of cannabis and unsafe to operate a vehicle.” She was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

British mom allegedly faked ovarian cancer to collect around $60,000
on GoFundMe — which she then blew on lavish vacations, pricey meals
and “heavy gambling.” Nicole Elkabbass’ trial opened in
Canterbury Crown Court with prosecutors describing the online
fundraising page that the 42-year-old is accused of using to swindle
good Samaritans. Called “Nicole needs our help treatments,” the
page tugged on heartstrings by describing Elkabbass as a “beautiful
daughter” and “loving mum to her 11-year-old son” who needed
cash to pay for life-saving medical procedures, prosecutor Ben Irwin
said. The allegedly bogus fundraiser even included a photo of
Elkabbass looking frail in a hospital bed — which was actually
taken after a 2017 surgery to remove her gallbladder. The alleged
sick scammer is facing fraud and possession of criminal property
charges. As the trial continues, her defense attorneys are expected
to argue that Elkabbass honestly believed she suffered from the

Central Florida firefighter’s mission to “catch 'em all” ended
with him stealing $165 worth of Pokémon cards from Walmart. Police
said 30-year-old Polk County firefighter Joel Strickland was caught
on surveillance video switching barcodes on packs of gaming cards at
Walmart. Records show he took the barcode stickers from lower-priced
Pokémon cards and placed them on more valuable packs then took them
to the self-checkout. A loss prevention officer confronted Strickland
before he could leave the store and then called police. He is now
facing a petit theft charge. (https://bit.ly/3llc4uk)
