CLEARWATER, Fla. (FOX 13) – The owner of Chick-fil-A in Westfield Countryside Mall in Clearwater, Florida has been charged with molesting a teen girl, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. Detectives arrested and charged Heather Matuszek, 32, of Dunedin, with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. They say Matuszek has admitted to two occasions of the alleged abuse, which the victim said happened in 2014 when Matuszek was a youth leader at Clearwater Community Church. The incidents happened outside of the church setting, investigators said, adding contact between leaders and youths outside of the church is not uncommon. According to her victim, who was 15 years old at the time, Matuszek, then 28, slept in the victim’s bed two separate nights.
The victim reported Matuszek kissed her face and rubbed her arms, body, and breast area, over her clothing. The victim also said there were other incidents involving Matuszek outside of Pinellas County, which the sheriff’s office said are being investigated by the relevant agencies. Detectives say Matuszek no longer attends Clearwater Community Church, however, there may be other victims who go to the church. The sheriff’s office asked anyone with information to call Detective Ghosio of the Crimes Against Children Unit at 727-582-6006.
Chick-fil-A issued a statement Wednesday evening, saying, “This is deeply disturbing news. No one should ever be subjected to this sort of abuse and we are shocked and saddened by the report. Law enforcement has jurisdiction over this matter and we are awaiting full facts to inform our actions. Chick-fil-A, Inc. is sending company representatives to the location for restaurant support.”
A 2016 post on the Facebook page for Chick-fil-A Westfield Countryside Mall welcomed Matuszek as its new owner/operator, saying, at the time, she worked for the company for six years. The post said she was an interim manager and traveled across the country, helping with the operation of multiple restaurants.

GULFPORT, Fla. — The Gulfport Senior Center Foundation announced last week that it would discontinue its popular "Gulfport GETGO" ride service as of May 30.
It's been eight years since Betty Duffey was legally declared blind in one eye.
“I went through a little depression when I realized I couldn’t drive anymore,” said Duffey.
But the Gulfport GETGO van offered her the independence she would have otherwise lost.
“It’s easy to get anywhere in Gulfport, like Walgreens or the grocery store, and they drop you off and come get you,” said Duffey.
Betty is one of hundreds of Gulfport residents and visitors who have taken advantage of the GETGO vans.
So when she came across a Facebook post announcing the program will not be operating for the foreseeable future, she couldn't believe it.
“I was shocked," she told us. "I was like freaking out, devastated."
According to Bob Newcomb, who serves on the board of directors for the Gulfport Senior Center Foundation, the decision did not come easily.But with vehicles needing major repairs, he says funding the program was eating up too many resources.
“It came with challenges that were particular to us," Newcomb explained. "Our primary goal and objective is to promote the senior center itself, and it was beginning to take away from that mission."
But he says they are going to do everything they can to save the program.
“We’re going to try to find a way that we can transfer the assets of the GETGO to another organization who can ... make it a primary goal, other than a secondary goal, for their business,” said Newcomb.
Duffey says she speaks for everyone when she says she would like to see that happen.
“There’s got to be a way," she said. "It improves everybody’s life, they enjoy it."
Newcomb also says the board is looking for a way to pay back any business owners who prepaid for advertisements on the GETGO vehicles.

Well after much theatrics, it looks like President Trump will follow through on his threat to impose 25% tariffs on Chinese Import Goods effective Friday Night at midnight unless there is a last-minute breakthrough on trade negotiations.
I wrote an article published Friday on DRJUNCUT site, about why this trade deal is so important on many fronts. You can refer to it: China Trade War- What Really Going On. It is important to understand that countries need to trade with each other as a critical means of maintaining it’s standard of living. Balanced Trade is what every country tries to achieve. Today, America has a HUGE trade deficit with China being the main culprit. Currently, the USA takes in Billions of Dollars more in goods from China than it Exports to China. This is a problem and one President Trump intends on winning.
Economic Wars are won or lost in many ways. Currency Wars start when one country tries to devalue its currency. When that fails, it leads to Trade Wars, the one we currently are in with many countries. This results with tariffs placed on goods coming into America from other countries, who may retaliate in kind if they feel the trade deal is unfair or unbalanced. If Trade deals escalate it could lead to global growth slowdown and tremendous added debt both of which only raise tensions and
may lead to a Shooting War. The latter is not a preferred option.
