New Trek films rival the classics

Back when I was in junior high school, NBC aired Star Trek for the first time. I was a huge science fiction fan, but most of what passed for television science fiction was junk like Land of the Giants and Lost in Space. The only things worth seeing up to that point had been Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits.

Imagine my shock when I watched the first episode of Star Trek and saw a thoughtful show that was well acted and not filled with too many cheesy monsters and even cheesier villains. I was hooked.

I still am, and am pleased to say that Star Trek Into Darkness lives up to its hype and pedigree. Once again, director J.J. Abrams has created an appealing, well-acted, and very exciting new edition to the Star Trek lexicon.

Arrests for underage drinking at city park

Police arrested three men, two of them under the legal drinking age of 21, at the Macclenny Park late on June 6 for disorderly intoxication and loitering after they were spotted drinking in a shelter near the volleyball courts on North 8th.

Deputy Chad Montean said one of the men, William Foster, 18, of Macclenny, fled on foot as he approached the area about 11:30 pm. He was caught minutes later by Deputy Robert Simpkins on Blair St. east of the park. Mr. Foster had an open bottle of vodka in his pocket.

The other two were identified as Kristopher Legg, 21, of Macclenny and Matthew Russell, 20, of Glen St. Mary.

Deputy Montean noted that a water spigot at the shelter was turned on and had flooded the floor, and a nearby garbage can had been overturned. Also, an empty vodka bottle was lying nearby on a picnic table.
