The event featured an ongoing egg en-US hunt, hot dogs and drinks, cotton candy, games, a bounce house and live en-US music.

Withen-US -en-US out this type of collaboration and the commiten-US-en-US ment of state and local partners, this downlisting en-US would not have been possible.en-US Manatee protectors disagree.en-US We believe this is a devastating blow to manaen-US-en-US tees, said Patrick Rose, Executive Director of Save en-US the Manatee Club. Specifically regarding Florida en-US manatees, Mr. Rose said FWS decided to premaen-US -en-US turely downlist manatees without a proven viable en-US plan for reducing record-high watercraft-related en-US manatee deaths and without establishing a long-en-US term plan for the anticipated loss of artificial winen-US -en-US ter warm water habitat on which more than 60 en-US percent of the Florida manatee population en-US depends. A federal reclassification at this time will en-US seriously undermine the chances of securing the en-US manatees longterm survival. With the new feden-US -en-US eral administration threatening to cut 75 percent en-US of regulations, including those that protect our en-US wildlife and air and water quality, the move to en-US downlist manatees can only be seen as a political en-US one.en-US While there is still more work to be done to en-US fully recover manatee populations, particularly in en-US the Caribbean, manatee numbers are increasing en-US and we are actively working with partners to en-US address threats, said Jim Kurth, the U.S. Fish and en-US Wildlife Services acting director.

Company en-US officials took the concerns of nearby resen-US -en-US idents seriously and decided to conduct en-US a noise test on its Desoto County plant en-US in order to allay their fears. en-US We had noise monitors placed within en-US 400 feet of the noise sources, he said. en-US That study actually found that the en-US operation noise was between 39 and 44 en-US decibels. A quiet library is about 40 decien-US -en-US bels, and actually the sound of the grass en-US rustling in the wind was louder than en-US what was perceived from this project.en-US Glades Cutoff resident Don Cannon en-US reiterated the concerns expressed by en-US many of the residents during the Planen-US -en-US ning and Zoning meeting March 16 en-US about the hammering sound during the en-US construction period.

A word from Sheriff Mascara en-USDen-USeputies and firefighters in St. Lucie en-US County are now better prepared to en-US save you in the event of an active en-US shooter incident. en-US Partnering together, the St. Lucie County en-US Sheriffs Office and the St. Lucie County en-US Fire District have launched an innovative en-US training program called S.A.V.E. Swift en-US Assisted Victim Extraction. This program en-US pairs law enforcement with firefighter/en-US paramedics in an active shooter incident to en-US quickly enter the scene, protect the medical en-US personnel and extract victims in order to en-US get them lifesaving treatment.en-US Based out of the lessons learned from en-US mass shootings like Columbine; Aurora, en-US Colo.; San Bernardino, Calif.; and the en-US Orlando Pulse Nightclub, this training en-US changes the culture of delaying medical en-US treatment until the scene is completely en-US secure. en-US The S.A.V.E. program was developed by en-US Jerry Mitchum and the Boone County en-US Sheriffs Office in Columbia, Mo., and en-US enhances on-scene emergency care, en-US recovery and extraction of persons in en-US situations where standard law enforcement en-US and emergency medical procedures will no en-US longer suffice.en-US This forging of law enforcement and fire/en-US emergency medical personnel creates one en-US seamless team to minimize and mitigate the en-US loss of life and serious bodily injury. The en-US S.A.V.E. team consists of four law enforceen-US -en-US ment members who make a protective en-US perimeter around the paramedics, shuttling en-US them to the wounded and then back out, en-US delivering victims to awaiting ambulatory en-US transport to a hospital.en-US Partnerships like this between the en-US Sheriffs Office and Fire District are on the en-US rise due to a strengthened and expanded en-US relationship and shift in priories to break en-US down barriers between agencies. Several en-US months ago, the two agencies partnered on en-US integrating Fire District paramedics into en-US the Sheriffs Office SWAT Team. Eight en-US paramedics completed the Florida Law en-US Enforcement Auxiliary Academy, along en-US with a 40-hour SWAT school and became en-US sworn law enforcement members of the en-US SWAT Team. They now deploy shoulder to en-US shoulder with the Sheriffs Office SWAT en-US members to provide emergency medical en-US treatment, should the incident require it. en-US The SAVE program is just another evoluen-US -en-US tion in the growing partnership between en-US these two agencies. By the end of 2017, en-US more than 300 deputies and 500 firefighter/en-US paramedics will be trained in the S.A.V.E. en-US program. The result is a more comprehenen-US -en-US sive response to emergency situations, en-US providing you, the residents we serve day in en-US and day out, a new level of safety and en-US protection.en-US As we move forward, I am excited about en-US the future of our growing partnership with en-US our colleagues at the Fire District. en-US Ken Mascara is the St. Lucie County en-US Sheriffen-USFROM THE SHERIFFen-USKEN MASCARA en-USVote by visiting the A Community Thrives en-US (ACT) official website during the Voting Period. en-US Maximum one (1) vote per person, per day.

For a child, the price was en-US the same as an adult so our little outing to a en-US movie including a small lunch added up to en-US over $40. What ever happened to daytime en-US matinees? I would think that more people en-US would take advantage of a cool movie theen-US-en-US ater in the afternoon than being outside all en-US day but at these prices, I can understand en-US why people have to find other things to do. en-US It would be nice to offer movies at an afforden-US -en-US able price so all could enjoy them once in en-US awhile.en-USLife is not fairen-USYou here it said that until you accept the en-US fact, Life is not fair, you will never be truly en-US happy in life. This Country started by fighten-US-en-US ing against that concept. We have always en-US fought against just giving up against adversien-US -en-US ty no matter how hopeless it seems to be. en-US The slaves fought against unfairness, The en-US Jews fought against it, and now the people en-US bombed with GAS fight against it. People en-US with no availability of Health Care fight en-US against unfairness also. Many people gave en-US their lives and limbs to make right the en-US unfairness and cruelty of the ones in power. en-US If the wealthy get ALL the money and own en-US ALL the food and ALL the medicine in the en-US world do the rest just say;Oh well, LIFE IS en-US NOT FAIR? Since we are all born on Earth, en-US not by choice, it seems to me that we should en-US ALL have at least the The right to live and en-US at least the chance of happiness. If we have a en-US right to live; then we should also have A en-US right to die, with dignity. A person who has en-US a terminal illness and in extreme pain en-US should not have to suffer and be used as an en-US income source for others in order to have an en-US Off shore account or something else for en-US their happiness. It is that time of year when en-US we should all be reminded of the messages en-US given to us by someone who has the power en-US to create life. It seems to me that we, as en-US HUMANS, really have no power at all and en-US that we are ALL on this short journey in life en-US together. We all must get old and die, that is en-US unfair, but we dont know why we were put en-US here? Maybe life is some sort of TEST to see en-US what kind of SOUL we have?en-USCell phones cause more en-US than 75 percent of automobile en-US accidents todayen-US en-US I dont like the word older. I like en-US mature, and those of you ranting about en-US mature drivers are going to be there soonen-US -en-US er then you think.en-US We have a high majority of mature driven-US -en-US ers in Florida; lots of them from other parts en-US of the country, where there are different en-US road rules.en-US I dont like the idea that all you young en-US kids below 50 think we cant drive and en-US should turn in our keys. Aint going to hapen-US -en-US pen, as long as we dont have another choice en-US of good reliable on time transportation en-US available. Believe me, we would if we had a en-US good transportation system but we dont. en-US Yes, we take things more slowly, obey the en-US rules and dont speed when we drive; and en-US that is why most of us drive safely.en-US As for the stats given, I checked them. en-US Pedestrians are top for automobile accidents en-US and death. Age 16-25 is second in line, with en-US cell phones as the major cause. They also en-US noted that cell phones cause over 75 percent en-US of automobile accidents today.en-US Get off your phones, children, and pay en-US attention to the road. Motorcycles was third. en-US The mature group was fourth, and cell en-US phones were not listed as the major cause.en-US I am in the fourth group at age 82. Been en-US driving since I was 16, (66 years), a typical en-US mature driver. I obey the rules, regulations en-US and speeds for driving, even when you en-US youngsters tailgate, honk horns, swerve en-US around me, give me the finger, yell obscenien-US-en-US ties, dart in front of me, make wrong en-US U-turns, etc.en-US What I see the under 50s doing when en-US they drive should gain them a ton of tickets. en-US I counted six tickets on one of my 30-year-en-US old neighbors, as I drove first in front and en-US then in back of them the other day everyen-US -en-US thing from speed to no signals. Unfortuen-US -en-US nately, no police officer was around to issue en-US them, and that is a problem, because we do en-US not have enough of them to police our roads en-US properly.en-US All older cars on the road are not hazards. en-US I drive a classic with 53,000 miles; built in en-US Detroit, Michigan, USA, not China, Japan en-US or Mexico, etc.en-US Just remember, you youngsters, you will en-US get here; and there are people in all age en-US groups who should turn in their keys. There en-US are also people in all age groups who are en-US good drivers. So, get off the mature group en-US kick.en-US Dont automatically think just because en-US you see gray hair that we are lousy drivers en-US and should turn in our keys at 50. en-US Open letter to all motorcyclists en-USPlease be aware that the striped zones en-US between or beside the handicapped parking en-US areas are not parking spaces.en-US Many handicapped vehicles are equipped en-US with lifts, ramps or swing-out chairs that en-US require this extra space.en-US Any obstacle to either side of the vehicle en-US could be dangerous or impossible to navien-US -en-US gate.en-US The only two options are to wait until the en-US obstruction leaves or move the vehicle into en-US traffic lanes to load/unload a wheelchair.

Kathy Brandon, Broker along with the five days, but is it possible to en-UShave two days of a break while all this conen-US -en-US struction is going on? That was my biggest en-US thing, having to listen to it that extra day.en-US Mr. Shupe said the company wanted the en-US plant online by early January and losing one en-US day of construction could jeopardize the en-US timetable.en-US These are very aggressive schedules for en-US construction, he added. The loudest activen-US -en-US ity with solar is driving those piles into the en-US ground, and that is a three-month process. en-US We get a lot of lightening strikes, which en-US means our men have to stand down during en-US construction, so wed like to maintain those en-US days as an option.en-US Another neighboring resident, Debbie en-US Sherrod, worried about the additional noise en-US caused by the heavy equipment being en-US brought in by rail car to a temporary crossen-US -en-US ing opened just for the plant construction. en-US One of the main concerns I have is that en-US the railroad crossing will be by my home, en-US she said. The biggest concern is that there en-US are no crossing arms, so every time the en-US freight train comes by -sometimes twice a en-US day -it does have to sound its horn going en-US both ways. We live out here in the country en-US for the quiet, not for train horns. en-US Mr. Shupe admitted he could offer no en-US hope on the crossing.en-US Its really an agreement between U.S. en-US Sugar and the FEC so its up to them how en-US they operate their trains, he said. en-US Commission Chairman Chris Dzadovsky en-US attempted to console the residents conen-US -en-US cerned about the Monday through Saturday en-US construction period.en-US The faster you get it done, the faster its en-US over, he said. en-US Although no employees will be working en-US regularly on the site of the $130 million en-US plant once its completed, it is projected to en-US create up to 250 construction jobs. Amy en-US Brunjes, regional manager for FP&L exteren-US -en-US nal affairs, said once area residents go en-US through an Indian River State College trainen-US -en-US ing course, theyll be qualified to work on en-US any of the companys other solar plants in en-US the future. Eight new projects are currently en-US in the works, including one in Indian River en-US County. en-US Its a five-week training at IRSC, and en-US were going to have a job fair at the end of en-US April, she said. Once these people are en-US trained, they can assimilate into the conen-US -en-US struction force.en-US Mr. Shupe said the plant is projected to en-US produce enough solar energy to power up to en-US 15,000 homes. en-US The emissions reduction equivalent for en-US this project will be like removing 12,000 cars en-US from the road annually, he explained. en-US Pete Tesch, president of the Economic en-US Development Council of St. Lucie County, en-US said the organization had unanimously en-US agreed to support the plant the same day.en-US Its such an exciting project and offers a en-US lot of great economic opportunity for St. en-US Lucie County, with the construction jobs, en-US the capital investment and the increase in en-US our tax base, he said. Ms. Brunjes said the en-US plant approval would mark a very important en-US milestone for both the company and St. en-US Lucie Countyen-US Its been almost 10 years that Ive been en-US talking with some of you and also many of en-US your predecessors about bringing solar en-US power to this county, she exclaimed.

Nelson continued. en-US For example, since the FWS proposal was en-US released, at least one county in Florida has en-US already made attempts to roll back existing en-US protections like slow-speed zones for boats, en-US which help to protect manatees.en-US A similar statement was released by dozen-US -en-US ens of Florida non-profit organizations, en-US including Pelican Island Audubon Society, en-US 1000 Friends of Florida, Center for Biologien-US -en-US cal Diversity, Clean Water Action, Florida en-US Clean Water Network, League of Women en-US Voters Florida, Florida Wildlife Federation, en-US and Friends of the Everglades that read in en-US part: en-US The Florida Manatees endangered status en-US has allowed the species to advance on the en-US road to recovery, but the threats to its habien-US -en-US tat are still too great to warrant a change to en-US its listing status at this time. Please maintain en-US the manatees status as endangered under en-US the federal Endangered Species Act until en-US threats to its habitat are better controlled.en-US The attorney for Save the Manatee Club, en-US Anne Harvey Holbrook, said this reclassifien-US -en-US cation comes at a time when manatees are en-US experiencing extreme and uncontrolled en-US threats to their survival. The decision to en-US prematurely remove the West Indian manaen-US-en-US tee from the Endangered Species list lacks en-US scientific justification and is not legally en-US defensible.

Earth en-US day is a day we can look around and see all en-US the wonders that nature has bestowed on en-US us. It is also a great time to think about how en-US we can protect and beautify our environen-US -en-US ment. This task can be as simple as planting en-US a single tree to beautify our yard or possibly en-US planting a colorful garden for all to enjoy en-US on your property or even to donate your en-US time to a local garden club to help beautify en-US an area of your city or town. With the en-US growing needs of our fragile environment, en-US now more then ever, this will be an en-US important year to do everything we can to en-US both beautify and balance our environment. en-US The idea of Earth Day was initiated in en-US 1962 as a way to get people aware of what is en-US going on in our environment. It all started en-US with President Kennedy in 1963 when he en-US took a five-day conservation tour of our en-US nation. The first official Earth Day was on en-US April 22, 1970. Since then, Earth Day has en-US blossomed into a national celebration en-US where people initiate ideas that can help en-US make our environment more eye appealing en-US and a better place to live.en-US With all the hype on how we are en-US depleting our cypress forests by the use of en-US cypress mulch, there are many other natural en-US alternatives we can use that are both en-US functional and also will save our natural en-US resources. One thing we can use that we all en-US have plenty of is natural grass clippings. en-US Thats right; grass clippings can make an en-US excellent mulching material that you can en-US use on almost all your plants and flowers. en-US You do need to be sure, however, that your en-US turf has not been recently treated with any en-US herbicides. The herbicides may damage en-US some of your tender plants. en-US Place the clippings around your plants in en-US layers. Make each of your layers thin and do en-US not make it too thick, as the mulch will en-US produce a smell. Apply the next thin layer en-US after the initial layer has been allowed to en-US dry out. As the clippings decompose, they en-US will produce a fertilizing effect on your en-US plants. The clippings tend to add nutrients en-US back to the soil as they decay and work en-US their way into the dirt. en-US Another great natural mulching material en-US is pine needles. This material is not suitable en-US for all plants, but is great for the majority of en-US plants we use in this part of Florida. You en-US can use pine clippings on any plants that are en-US acid loving. This list can include ixoria, en-US hibiscus, bottlebrush, azalea, gardenia, en-US junipers, and banana trees along with many en-US other plants that require a high acid content en-US in the soil. Not only do many of these en-US natural remedies save resources, they also en-US save you money. Doing large areas of your en-US yard with commercial products can cost a en-US fortune. With the money you save on en-US mulching materials, you will be able to en-US purchase lots more colorful flowers!en-US Many of your favorite plants that you en-US have in your yard can be easily propagated en-US into new plants without the need to keep en-US buying new plants. Roses are a great en-US example of this. In the spring, you can en-US choose cuttings that are healthy and green en-US and they will make good candidates for en-US cuttings. Using a sharp knife cut off the soft en-US tip of the cane and then cut it into 4to en-US 5-inch pieces. Each piece should have at en-US least 2 nodes and some leaves. Strip off the en-US bottom leaves to expose a node, and then en-US plant the cutting in moist soil and keep it in en-US bright shade and high humidity. You can en-US use containers covered with plastic bags, or en-US set them in the ground in the shade and en-US cover them with plastic jugs. Either method en-US should work fine. Take several cuttings to en-US be sure you have success with at least en-US several. You are now on your way to en-US propagating your own Rose garden!en-US Remember, this year even more than ever en-US we must take responsibility for our planet. en-US Everything you do no matter how small it is en-US helps. When you combine all the small en-US efforts together you have one huge result. en-US Conserving water is a huge step that can en-US help everybody, especially with the drought en-US we are experiencing in 2017.en-US Remember, Earth Day is April 22, 2017.en-US Joe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape.

When it comes to the World en-US Golf Hall of Fame, a city much farther en-US south and much older comes to the minds en-US of golf enthusiasts.en-US At nearly 500 years old, St. Augustine is en-US our nations oldest city. In addition to the en-US Golf Hall of Fame, this city is also home to en-US the Castillo de San Marcos, the Fountain of en-US Youth, St. Augustine Lighthouse and en-US Museum, and Colonial Spanish homes and en-US landmarks. en-US Built in 1998, the World Golf Hall of en-US Fame is the en-US youngest of the en-US major sports en-US Halls. One of the en-US great things en-US about golf is that en-US it may be played en-US for a lifetime, its en-US players never en-US truly retire. This, en-US however, poses a en-US challenge in en-US deciding just en-US how long to wait en-US to enshrine en-US someone.en-US Induction to en-US the Hall comes en-US through five categories. On the PGA Tour en-US and International Ballots, golf journalists, en-US historians and golf dignitaries vote to deteren-US -en-US mine who is elected. The LPGA Point en-US System is used to determine eligibility for en-US the ladies. The World Golf Hall of Fame en-US Board of Directors determines those en-US honored by the Lifetime Achievement en-US category, created to honor persons whose en-US contributions to the game have come from en-US outside the competitive arena, and the en-US Veterans Category which honors those en-US players whose careers are worthy of en-US enshrinement.en-US With summer fast approaching, its time en-US to decide where to go to get-away from en-US things and treat yourself, and maybe even en-US the family, to a quick trip. You should en-US consider the World Golf Hall of Fame and en-US all the World Golf Village has to offer. You en-US can spend a few or several hours touring en-US the latest exhibits in the two-story shrine en-US dedicated to golfs greatest men and en-US women. en-US The hall is very open and airy. It feels as en-US if you are near your favorite breeze-swept en-US fairway. There are also plenty of windows en-US that allow the natural sunlight to brighten en-US and warm you.en-US As you enter the hall, you are greeted by en-US mementos telling the stories of great en-US moments in the lives and careers of the en-US most recent class of inductees.en-US The hall dedicates more than 32,000 en-US square feet to exhibits. Permanent displays en-US tell the history of the game. New acquisien-US -en-US tions and Hall of Fame memorabilia are en-US housed at the base of the tower on the en-US second floor. One current exhibit is Bob en-US Hope: Shanks for the Memories. This en-US exhibit looks at his devotion to the troops en-US and and the many ways he championed the en-US game of golf. Another exhibit, Road to en-US Rio: Golfs Return to the Olympics, takes en-US visitors on a historical journey from 1900 en-US when golf was first played as an Olympic en-US Sport, to 1904, the last time golfers en-US competed for medals before this past en-US summer.en-US The historic section is filled with clubs en-US and parchments that reference golf en-US beginning as early as the 15th century. I en-US was fascinated with the old clubs and the en-US odd designs that players and craftsmen en-US came up with en-US to hit balls en-US and rocks. en-US The history en-US of golf is well en-US documented en-US and preserved en-US here. I learned en-US that in 1929 en-US Bobby Jones en-US and Tom en-US Stewart en-US became the en-US first to design en-US grooved clubs en-US with numbers en-US stamped on en-US them. The en-US iron that astronaut Alan Shepard used on en-US the Moon to hit golf balls is on display. en-US There is a replica of the famous Swilcan en-US Bridge from St. Andrews for visitors to en-US cross.en-US The highlight of the tour is the Wall of en-US Fame, where golden busts commemorate en-US those enshrined here including golfers, en-US architects, journalists, innovators and en-US teachers. The room sits on the second floor en-US under the clock tower.en-US Throughout the Hall of Fame there are en-US mementos from many of golfs greats. en-US Bernard Langers Masters Trophy and the en-US Claret Jug that Nick Price won as Open en-US Champion are here. A display celebrating en-US Gary Players career includes his Green en-US Jacket from the 1961 Masters.en-US Before you exit the hall, you meander en-US through the Member Locker Room. Each en-US inductee has a locker here featuring en-US mementos from that persons life and en-UScareer, providing a look into their world en-US and a way to connect with golfing greats en-US who have long since passed.en-US Finally, what would a trip to golfs Hall of en-US Fame be without a little golf? The World en-US Golf Village features a pair of fantastic en-US courses, the Slammer and Squire, designed en-US by golf legends Sam Snead and Gene en-US Sarazen; and the King & Bear, designed by en-US Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. For en-US those looking to improve their game, the en-US PGA Tour Academy is located in the village en-US as well.en-US The World Golf Village is surely worth en-US the drive from any point in the state. There en-US is plenty to keep every golf fan busy, en-US relaxed, entertained and well-fed.
