By Lawrence A. Robinson So, I was driving on Silver Star Rd and turned North onto Pine Hills Rd, and I saw a fellow pacing back and forth with a sign. He was picketing the Citgo station on the corner of the Winn Dixie Plaza. I looked at my temperature gauge and then my clock. It was about 10:30am and very hot.
