FOILED ESCAPE: During the EIRA rough stock clinic Jan. 19 in Big Cypress, a group of steer the kids were supposed to wrestle managed to escape.

TRIUMPHANT TUNES IN TAMPA: Christopher Escott, from Pinellas County, was a recent Blake Shelton Video Slots jackpot winner at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa. The jackpot that Escott won awarded a Blake Shelton autographed guitar, the gaming industry’s first in-game giveaway of its kind. In September, Seminole Hard Rock Tampa became the first casino in the world to receive IGT’s Blake Shelton Video Slot machines, which are located in the art deco-inspired mezzanine level casino. The new video slots were created by IGT to feature Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year Blake Shelton. He’s known for his success in country music and his role as a coach on the Emmy Award-winning television show “The Voice.” (Courtesy Hard Rock)
