Even so, the latest en-US proposal to open an arcade at 740 en-US Orange Ave. came up one parking en-US space short of the now required 19 en-US spaces. The developer, Yousef Qasem, en-US had offered to pay the citys permitted en-US $6,000 fee to mitigate the one parking en-US space, but city planner Brandon Creaen-US -en-US gan remained unsatisfied.en-US The parking situation has been a en-US concern, he said. its been a concern en-US of the planning staff since the beginen-US -en-US ning. Staff recommends that the City en-US Commission disapprove the conditionen-US -en-US al use as the applicant has not demonen-US-en-US strated that the intended use will not en-US adversely affect the health, safety and en-US general welfare of the surrounding en-US community.en-US Mr. Creagan also informed commisen-US-en-US sioners they would need a super-maen-US -en-US jority to approve the project since the en-US Fort Pierce Planning Board also rejecten-US -en-USCity en-US rejects en-US arcade for en-US Orange en-US Avenueen-USOfficials still struggling en-US with limited parking in en-US Peacock Arts Districten-USSeeen-US en-US ARCADEen-US page 10en-USBy Donald Rodrigueen-USFor Hometown Newsen-USFORT PIERCE Florida Department of Health en-US in St. Lucie County officials are currently investien-US -en-US gating a series of cases of glioblastoma in Fort en-US Pierce. But while residents in the area are conen-US -en-US cerned there are environmental factors that have en-US led to 13 cases over the last five years, the county is en-US not calling it a cancer cluster at this time.en-US According to a press release from the FDOH-en-US SLC, As discussed this is an intricate matter, (and) en-US personal and we really want to get this right. en-US Although we have no evidence of the source of any en-US disease cluster, we also understand the strong conen-US -en-US cerns in the community.en-US According to the American Brain Tumor Assoen-US-en-US ciation, glioblastomas are defined as: tumors that en-US arise from astrocytes the star-shaped cells that en-US make up the glue-like, or supportive tissue of the en-US brain. These tumors are usually highly malignant en-US (cancerous) because the cells reproduce quickly, en-US and they are supported by a large network of blood en-US vessels.en-US Those who have been diagnosed live within five en-US to seven miles of each other, according to DOH en-US records. Across the country, there are roughly en-US 13,000 people diagnosed with glioblastoma each en-US year, or about one out of every 30,000 people. Fort en-US Pierce is home to about 45,000 residents, which en-US was the factor that originally raised the concerns en-US due to their above-average number and the relaen-US -en-US tive rarity of the disease. Also, the only environen-US -en-US mental factor is exposure to ionizing radiation en-US such as x-rays and gamma rays.en-US The county also has directed people to the en-US departments individual websites in the interests of en-US informing the public.

She also recenten-US-en-US ly returned from a trip to Europe and was en-US able to learn a great deal about many of the en-US styles that might be headed to our shores in en-US the near future. There also is a goal toward en-US maintaining a sound ecological footprint en-US there, which is draw for people concerned en-US about the environment.en-US We always keep ourselves up-to-date, en-US Jacquie said. And we use top-of-the-line en-US hair color here Goldwell, Wella and for en-US styling we use Aquage and I also really try en-US to stress organic products and any sustainen-US-en-US able, earth-friendly products. I dont let the en-US girls throw out acetone down the drain; its en-US very important that we dont waste and we en-US keep an eye on what were using for customen-US -en-US ers health.en-US She also is active in the North Beach en-US Associations Board of Directors and particien-US -en-US pates in many active pursuits and cleanup en-US efforts to be a good citizen and beautify the en-US community while helping beautify her clien-US -en-US ents.

I finally told them I pay en-US federal income tax which buys the hungry en-US food stamps. I will not pay twice by donaten-US-en-US ing at their store. Let the 50 percent of the en-US people who do not pay income taxes donate en-US at the store.en-USSticker shock at the moviesen-USI recently had the pleasure of taking my en-US two granddaughters to the movies in the en-US daytime but was shocked to see there were en-US no daytime deals. 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 hear 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 and car accidentsen-USI dont like the word older. I like mature, en-US and those of you ranting about mature en-US drivers are going to be there sooner then en-US 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.

I en-US counted six tickets on one of my 30-year-old en-US neighbors, as I drove first in front and then en-US in back of them the other day everything en-US from speed to no signals. Unfortunately, no en-US police officer was around to issue them, and en-US that is a problem, because we do not have en-US enough of them to police our roads properen-US -en-US ly.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.

Pierce en-USTREASURE COAST One local orgaen-US -en-US nization is going all-out for people with en-US disabilities. EmployU, a nonprofit organien-US-en-US zation working throughout Florida, helps en-US people with disabilitiesfind gainful en-US employment in whatever capacities they en-US can excel in and attain good jobs that en-US highlight their skills.en-US EmployU staff members help clients en-US with resumes, job applications and meet en-US with businesses to find jobs suited to their en-US strengths.en-US Many businesses, such as Publix employ en-US people with disabilities, but are not in the en-US position to hire more profoundly disabled en-US people. They typically offer bagger posien-US-en-US tions to the disabled, in many cases, en-US although those are much-appreciated by en-US EmployU staff.en-US But Employment Specialist Susan Marien-US-en-US no said there are many businesses in the en-US community that have made a difference by en-US taking a chance and investing in other clien-US -en-US ents. Many of these are privately owned en-US businesses and not necessarily big corpoen-US -en-US rations, she said. en-US I felt that if we give some positive en-US attention to these businesses, then other en-US local businesses might also be encouraged en-US and motivated to give people with disabilien-US -en-US ties a chance, Ms. Marino said. I personen-US-en-US ally work within four counties on the en-US Treasure Coast Indian River, St. Lucie, en-US Okeechobee and Martin counties and en-US have helped hundreds of folks find meanen-US -en-US ingful employment. I feel passionate about en-US helping people find purpose through en-US employment.en-US What many people dont realize is that a en-US disability can occur from birth to death, en-US Ms. Marino added, and some are born en-US with developmental disabilities while othen-US -en-US ers are injured when they experience en-US things like strokes, macular degeneration en-US or accidents that render them unable to do en-US their previous jobs.en-US Vocational rehabilitation has a team of en-US engineers that they can provide to the en-US employers to make accommodations to en-US employees, Ms. Marino said. In some en-US cases, there are devices they can use to en-US overcome their disabilities.en-US For all of these clients, employment proen-US -en-US vides a sense of community and is a great en-US source of socialization, according to a en-US press release. While many people with disen-US-en-US abilities live in isolation, employment en-US increases self-esteem and leaves them with en-US a profound sense of gratitude to these en-US companies and long-term commitment to en-US their jobs.en-US Employers are not typically eager to en-US accommodate people with disabilities and en-US we all know what the law is: The Amerien-US -en-US cans With Disabilities Act states that they en-US have to offer opportunities equally, but we en-US all know that is not always the case.en-US Ms. Marino cited a number of clients en-US she has been able to help along the way, en-US including Austin Beers. Hes a 21-year-old en-US young man with dwarfism, high-frequenen-US -en-US cy deafness as well as developmental disen-US -en-US abilities. He is not able to read, write or en-US communicate verbally. Hes survived both en-US brain and open-heart surgeries during his en-US short life, but had a big dream: to be a en-US chef. But due to his small stature, issues en-US with dexterity and communication proben-US -en-US lems, his options were limited at best.en-US Ms. Marino worked with Mr. Beers and en-US helped him develop skills for an eight-en-US week training course that was paid by en-US EmployU at Longhorn Steakhouse in Jenen-US -en-US sen Beach. He worked with Job Coach en-US Michelle Hansen to develop learning skills en-US that could be applied in future employen-US -en-US ment, and Longhorn has been a long-time en-US partner, working with thousands of stuen-US -en-US dents with disabilities.en-US But Kyle Greene of Kyle Gs Prime Seaen-US -en-US food & Steaks on Hutchinson Island, who en-US opened his business in late 2017 has hired en-US a high-functioning client named Willie, en-US who is still working there. en-US I approached Kyle again in February to en-US challenge him with helping Austin en-US withhisdream. I was completely transparen-US -en-US ent and said, Listen Kyle, this is going to en-US be tough, Im not going to lie, Ms. Marien-US -en-US no said. And Mr. Greene agreed to meet en-US with Austin and offered him a job on the en-US spot. Mr. Greene also agreed to let me peren-US -en-US sonally provide job coaching for Austin en-US since I have a background in culinary en-US training. en-USIn the meantime, Mr. Greene and his en-US entire staff have welcomed Mr. Beers with en-US open arms.

en-US 9 en-USFORT PIERCE -The Fort Pierce Utilities en-US Authority voted unanimously April 3 to pay en-US higher wholesale energy rates in order to en-US pay more competitive salaries for its en-US employees under contract with the Florida en-US Municipal Power Agency to run the Treaen-US -en-US sure Coast Energy Center. en-US Ed Leon-Gomez, TCEC plant manager, en-US made the case for the higher salaries, en-US emphasizing that the current compensation en-US plan dated back to the decommissioning of en-US the much lower-tech H.D. King Power Plant en-US almost 10 years ago. His first 14 employees en-US received training from the then-new plants en-US equipment manufacturer, something no en-US longer available as a resource. Today the en-US plant provides enough electricity to power en-US 60,000 homes in the 15 Florida cities served en-US by FMPAs All Requirements Project. With en-US only six of the original employees still on his en-US staff of 15, he now finds training new en-US employees or attracting experienced worken-US -en-US ers for such a highly automated combined en-US cycle power plant more difficult.en-US Unfortunately we dont have all those en-US folks and so I had to come with a different en-US plan because we didnt have the original en-US training and selection method available en-US anymore, he said. I needed to come up en-US with a different way to do it because the cost en-US of errors are so high. Unforced errors in an en-US employee that either through operations or en-US maintenance is performing a task that causen-US-en-US es the unit to go offline unnecessarily are a en-US bad thing. One day that the unit is down can en-US cost up to $150,000 in additional power en-US costs to the All-Requirements Project.en-US Realizing he couldnt afford to utilize any en-US of his limited staff to do training without en-US affecting plant productivity, Mr. Leon-Goen-US -en-US mez began weighing his options. en-US The lean staffing that we had was not en-US really available to train somebody thats not en-US experienced enough and needs a lot of en-US information to be able to get the job done, en-US he explained. It became apparent fairly en-US quickly that Plan B had a little something en-US that wasnt considered, and that was the en-US highly experienced employees out there in en-US the market. If we look at comparable posien-US-en-US tions at other Florida municipal power en-US plants, they are compensated 5 to 10 percent en-US higher that the compensation plan that we en-US have at the Treasure Coast Energy Center. en-US Bringing his employee salaries up to par en-US will end up costing the FPUA and the other en-US municipalities participating in the project en-US an additional .09 cents per thousand kiloen-US -en-US watt hours. en-US It immediately increases operating costs en-US about $50,000 for salaries and overheads, en-US he added. The mitigation to the cost is the en-US value, and so the folks that you bring in are en-US the folks that help you get those safety goals, en-US that help you meet regulatory compliance en-US and liability goals. As stated earlier, an expeen-US -en-US rienced employee can help you avoid that en-US unforced error that can result in a two-to-en-US three times the cost of the salary increase in en-US one avoided incident. en-US Florida Municipal Power Agency General en-US Manager Jacob Williams also spoke during en-US the meeting, calling the Treasure Coast en-US Energy Center a well-run facility and en-US expressing his backing for the plan to make en-US salaries more competitive.en-US Back in the fall when we had our board en-US meeting here, we had a tour of the plant and en-US everyone understood this plant provides en-US about 30 percent of all the electricity for en-US FMPAs members, he said. It is actually a en-US plant that performs in the top 10 percent of en-US the country in terms of availability, and this en-US isnt compared to other municipal plants; en-US this is compared to all the gas-fired plants en-US around the country. Our board knows that en-US if its not available and running, theyre en-US going to lose far more than getting everyone en-US paid up to market, so theyre quite happy in en-US paying market to get that kind of perforen-US -en-US mance. en-US Fort Pierce Utilities Authority member en-US Michael Perri Jr. agreed with that assessen-US -en-US ment, making the motion to accept the salaen-US -en-US ry increase plan.en-US I have known for some time that we were en-US under-paying our employees, and I think its en-US about time we came up and towed the line en-US because of mainly the competition, and its en-US needed to get quality people onboard, he en-US said. The ramifications of having employen-US -en-US ees that arent in tune to that process could en-US be catastrophic and really raise the cost of en-US our rates in the long run. I think its very en-US important we have the best qualified people en-US and pay them as much as we can to track en-US them.en-USPay raise for Energy Center employeesen-USFPUA members agree to en-US higher wholesale costs to en-US help bring salaries up to en-US par with comparative en-US positionsen-USBy Donald Rodrigueen-USFor Hometown News The 7th Annual Fort Pierce Oyster Festival filled the en-USlagoon front area of Riverwalk with hundreds of vendors, exhibits and displays.   Freshly shucked oysters were the highlight of the two-day event!   A po rtion of the proceeds en-USbenefit the Sea-Life Habitat Improvement Project (S.H.I.P) en-USAbove:Fort Pierce residents Ken Giben-US -en-US bons and Tom Jaeger shuck the day en-US awayen-US Bottom center: The Making Faces en-US band takes the stage with their en-US self-described brand of ROGGUNK en-US music, a blend of rock, reggae and en-US funk.en-US Far right: Kyran Holcomb of Fort en-US Pierce chills in the shade while enjoyen-US -en-US ing the music of Making Faceen-USOyster Fest Funen-USLeft: Pirates en-US Dan Leeen-US -en-US ward and en-US Holly Roger en-US are joined en-US by Port St. en-US Lucie siben-US-en-US lings Bryan, en-US Olivia and en-US Addyson Ray en-USPhotos by en-US MaryAnn en-US Ketcham

I mean we want to develop these en-US areas and we want them to progress and en-US we want people like his client to put the en-US money into these buildings, but if were en-US going to slap them in the face every time en-US with inadequate parking, then were en-US defeating the whole purpose.en-US Mr. Qasems representative, Mike en-US Menard of Fort Pierce-based Architectonen-US-en-US ic, Inc., reminded the Commission that en-US his client had already made numerous en-US concessions, including altering the hours en-US of operation so as not to interfere with the en-US parking needs of the adjacent businesses en-US or the service times of the church across en-US the street. He insisted the commercial en-US zoning on the property and current city en-US code allowed for the mitigation of the one en-US missing parking spot.en-US The way I interpret the code, if there en-US were no parking spaces available and I en-US wanted to operate a business, I could pay en-US the city $30,000 or whatever I needed to en-US buy the parking spaces that I need, he en-US said.en-US Several members of the public spoke en-US out against the proposed arcade, saying it en-US could draw unwanted elements into the en-US nearby residential neighborhoods due to en-US the late evening hours of operation proen-US -en-US posed. Atlantic Avenue resident Michael en-US McCloud worried about the possibility en-US with problems from the late-night clienen-US -en-US tele of the arcade.en-US The question is whether or not this en-US particular type of business is complemenen-US-en-US tary to the long-term vision of Orange en-US Avenue, he said. My big concern is that I en-US dont have clarity as to who will be cusen-US -en-US tomers of this arcade, and who will be the en-US customers letting out at two in the mornen-US -en-US ing and where will they be going. Whats en-US going to be the impact on the surrounding en-US community when those customers leave at en-US 2 a.m. in the morning?en-US Relatively new Fort Pierce resident Jenen-US -en-US nifer Gilchrist said she had been following en-US the issue closely and believed that arcade-en-US type gambling was not a risk-free activity.en-US It comes with a consequence -its a en-US hidden illness, she said. My thing is not en-US to oppose the arcade, but its the location en-US of it. And an arcade so close to a residenen-US -en-US tial area is not good for the City of Fort en-US Pierce.en-US Mr. Menard, however, insisted the en-US Orange Avenue arcade would help launch en-US the desired growth of the downtown busien-US -en-US ness district westward.en-US Bringing a business in there that is only en-US open in the evenings might promote more en-US restaurants right there to be open during en-US the evening -ice cream shops, coffee en-US shops -to go with the overall theme of en-US getting additional art studios or galleries en-US or retail shops like what we used to have en-US way back on Orange Avenue, he said.en-US His logic failed to convince Mayor en-US Linda Hudson, who sided with the opposen-US -en-US ing residents.en-US Im very concerned about the hours en-US that go until two oclock in the morning, en-US she said. During the last Commission en-US meeting, we turned down a cell tower on en-US Orange Avenue because of what we wanten-US -en-US ed for Orange Avenue. We have a neighen-US -en-US borhood thats changing, and we want it to en-US change for the best: Its bordered by resien-US -en-US dential, and a lot of residents dont want en-US certain kind of businesses that near to en-US where they live.en-US Commissioner Jeremiah Johnson also en-US opposed the project due to the limited en-US parking in the neighborhood.en-US I was opposed to the [parking] reducen-US -en-US tion without defining the terms of what en-US we were looking for in the arts district, he en-US said. I still go back to defining the Peaen-US-en-US cock Arts District and what were looking en-US for in that section.en-US Mr. Menard echoed he words of Comen-US -en-US missioner Sessions and warned the Comen-US -en-US mission that the parking issue would limit en-US future redevelopment along the corridor.en-US So youre going to have to determine en-US what ways to best benefit the city, with the en-US reoccurring taxes and fees, and having en-US vacant buildings or not having vacant en-US buildings to promote the economic develen-US-en-US opment of Fort Pierce, he said.en-US For his part, Commissioner Rufus Alexen-US -en-US ander bemoaned the lack of progress in en-US the district.en-US If we dont change Orange Avenue, its en-US never going to change, he exclaimed. We en-US never defined what we want for Orange en-USAvenue, and we have all kinds of people en-US coming before us, and then we turn them en-US away.en-US The Commission subsequently voted en-US 5-0 to deny the conditional use applicaen-US -en-US tion for the arcade.en-USArcadeen-USFrom page 1en-USon our website, as we will share more as it en-USbecomes available, which subsequently en-US sends people to en-US https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/en-US clusters/en-US and en-UShttp://wwwen-US .floridahealth.gov/en-US diseases-and-conditions/cancer/cancer-regen-US -en-US istry/index.htmlen-US Another website is menen-US-en-US tioned at en-US http://stlucie.floridahealth.gov/ en-USprogramsen-US-and-services/glioblastoma.htmlen-US en-US for people to receive data about glioblastoen-US -en-US mas.en-US Meanwhile, at the state level, the Departen-US -en-US ment of Health is working with DOH-St. en-US Lucie officials to glean more information en-US from those diagnosed.

This years Masters had en-US everything we hoped for.en-US We had the hype before the event began. en-US The best players in the sport were all hitting en-US their stride and it looked like wed be in for en-US a weekend of one great moment after en-US another.en-US We had a player making a hole-in-one at en-US the Par 3 Contest, dislocating his ankle, en-US popping it back in and going on to finish en-US tenth. en-US Our greatest champion, Jack Nicklaus, en-US witnessed his grandson G.Ts first ace in the en-US same event and said, With all due respect en-US to The Masters, allow me to put my six en-US Green Jackets in the closet for a moment an en-US say that I dont know if I have had a more en-US special day on a golf course.en-US Mother Nature gave us some great en-US weather. Save for some rain on Saturday, the en-US flowers were blooming, the air was crisp en-US and breeze was blowing.en-US The tournament kicked off with the en-US greatest tradition in our sport. The en-US Ceremonial Tee Shot. Its like weve handed en-US the bottle of champagne to our greatest en-US players and asked them to pop the cork and en-US officially get this golf year started.en-US Every year, the moment is watched by en-US fans, players and dignitaries alike. Its not en-US unusual to see players who have hours en-US before they tee off, right there to watch the en-US moment. There is none like it at any other en-US time in our sport.en-US Last year was filled with tears and joy as en-US The Masters paid tribute to Arnold Palmer. en-US Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus had a en-US difficult time hitting their shots as they en-US fought tears and made loving gestures to en-US the heavens to acknowledge the late Palmer.en-US This year the feeling was much different. en-US There was joy and laughs and even some en-US ribbing as Player out-drove Nicklaus. en-US Dont worry about out-driving me now. en-US You out-drove me for 50 damn years, en-US Player told Jack after they had hit their en-US shots.en-US For many of us the trio of the Nicklaus, en-US Player and late Palmer, were, and still are, en-US our golf heroes. They represent all that is en-US great in our sport. Its a tradition that I hope en-US continues when this pair can no longer en-US perform.en-US During Thursdays round one patron was en-US nearly on the outside of Magnolia Lane en-US looking in. We all hate those idiots who yell en-US Get in the hole! or Mashed Potatoes or en-US some other sort of nonsense after every en-US shot, even tee shots on par-fives. One such en-US genius was on-hand to do just that after a en-US tee shot. Immediately Augusta National en-US Security descended on the spot looking for en-US the offender. There would be none of that en-US on these hallowed grounds.en-US One writer carrying his credentials was en-US asked who had yelled. No one seemed to en-US know and no one pointed anyone out. en-US When asked what would en-US have happened had they en-US caught this person, they en-US were told that his badge en-US would be revoked en-US permanently, he would en-US have been escorted off the en-US property and never en-US allowed to return. Ever. en-US Now this is a rule I think en-US we would all love to see en-US enforced!en-US As I get older I find en-US myself pulling for the en-US older, former champions en-US at Augusta. Fred Couples en-US and Bernhard Langer are en-US two former champions en-US who put on a great show, en-US but eventually saw their games fade over en-US the weekend. The pair finished tied for en-US 28th, only two shots behind Tiger Woods, en-US who needed a final round 69 to pass them en-US on the leaderboard. en-US Another old-timer, Tom Watson won the en-US aforementioned Par 3 Contest on Wednesen-US -en-US day. Its an event that no one has won and en-US gone on to slip on the Green Jacket in the en-US same year.en-US The week went by as many expected with en-US the best players making great shots and en-US posting good scores. Tiger Woods, who so en-US many felt was ripe for a win, struggled in en-US his return and finished well behind, never a en-US factor in the event. There were others to en-US pick up the slack.en-US It all came down to some fantastic play at en-US the end. Jordan Spieth came from 10 shots en-US behind to actually tie for the lead late in his en-US round. Rickie Fowler had his best Sunday at en-US the Masters with a 67, including a birdie on en-US the last to out some pressure on Patrick en-US Reed. In the end he would be there to en-US congratulate the winner.en-US After all was said and done, it was Reed, en-US making clutch putt after clutch put, after en-US clutch shot, that won the 2018 Masters. He en-US played the best, made the tough shots when en-US he needed them and is a truly deserving en-US champion. en-US In all it was a wonderful first major of the en-US year. I can hardly wait until June for the en-US next one.en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.
