ST. LUCIE COUNTY As 2013 comes to a close we are r emembering some of the stories from the past year. Officer killed in line of duty Sgt. Gary Morales, a St. Lucie C ounty deputy, was shot and killed the morning of Feb. 28 during a r outine traffic stop. S t. Lucie County, as well as state leaders, joined officers in their dress blues, relatives and friends of Sgt. Morales, who lived in Port St. L ucie but was well-known all over the county. He joined the St. Lucie Sheriffs Office 12 years ago, and the awards continued, with the most r ecent being a promotion in January, 2013, to Sergeant Deputy. On the morning of Feb. 28, he made a traffic stop in the 3200 block of Naylor Terrace, just south of Edwards Road south of Fort Pierce in unincorporated St. Lucie County. Sgt. Morales left behind a wife, H olly, and two daughters Brooklynn and Jordan, along with numerous family members, including his brother, St. Lucie County Deputy S heriff Brad Morales. Mr. Tisdale is currently being held without bond, and has been charged with premeditated first degree murder, assault on an officer, possession of a w eapon by a convicted felon and fleeing the scene. Lagoon protests As many as 6,000 concerned residents gathered at P hipps Park in Stuart Aug. 3 to stand up for their local waterways and protest the contaminated water being dumped into the St. Lucie River despite the rain. B efore the march, attendees listened to brief presentations by organizers Evan Miller and Clint S tarling and Mark Perry of the Florida Oceanographic society meant to educate as to why the river is in the condition it is.

T radition Medical Center opens its doorsTRADITION After 15 y ears of planning and preparation, Martin Health S ystem realized its vision of bringing high-quality health care to the residents of west Port St. Lucie with the opening of Tradition M edical Center. The doors to the hospital opened De c. 18 at 7 a.m. Tr adition Medical Center is a 201,184-square-foot, 90-bed acute care hospital. In addition to emergency care, the hospital offers general and specialized medical care, general and specialized surgical services, an intensive care unit, labor and delivery services, and a neonatal intensive care unit. Full diagnostic imaging and laboratory services are also available. In its first year, the medical center anticipates 30,000 visits to its emergency department, 6,000 patient admissions and 1,500 births. The six-floor structure was designed to be able to expand as needed in the future, with an eventual total capacity of 300 beds. F or years, residents of w est Port St. Lucie and surr ounding communities told us there was a significant need for access to medical services in the area, said Mark E. R obitaille, president and chief executive officer of Ma r tin Health. This hospital is testament to our organizations commitment to meeting the health care needs of our community. Located on the Tradition C enter for Innovation campus, the medical center joins Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies, the V accine and Gene Therapy I nstitute of Florida, and the M ann Research Center.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY S t. Lucie County shared the good news that local high school performance r ates are continuing to improve. S t. Lucie Public Schools have become more goalfocused in the area of student performance, said Genelle Yost, superintendent. The goal-focused implementation process is designed to help schools evaluate current functioning and identify research-based interventions to address targets and goals. Positive changes are documented within our detailed results preliminarily released by the DOE this morning. F ort Pierce Central earned an A with 1131 points (71 percent) of all available points. LPA continued its high performance with an A earned with 1,315 points (77 percent of available points). LPA has maintained an accountability grade of A since 2002. Treasure Coast at 1,064 points earned the points for an A. This represents a strong record of success; however, they were penalized due to a one-year decline in the at-risk graduation rate. This particular penalty prevents a school from earning an A, regardless of points earned. St Lucie West Centennial earned a strong B this year with 1,014 points. Progress was steady for Centennial in Assessment percent as well as most of the High School components. However, Regular and At-Risk Graduation R ates were down slightly in both the 4-yr and the 5-yr r ates. This accounted for a small decline in points earned. In addition, these small declines made SLWCHS ineligible for bonus points which contributed to their strong performance last year. Port St. Lucie earned a C with 944 grade points. This r epresents consistent performance across the last two y ears. F ort Pierce Westwood earned a D with 865 points this year, five points from a C. This represents a strong performance. Postsecondary Readiness in R eading improved by 21 points (43 total points in 2012 and 64 points in 2013). The At-Risk Graduation Rate for 2013 improved by 14 points. Learning gains in R eading and Math for the lowest 25 percent have been documented for 2013. Mosaic, in their first year with an assigned grade, obtained an overall 4-year graduation rate of 73 percent and this score is not calculated into their accountability grade due to small cell sizes. Students reached 59 percent proficiency in Reading (second highest percentage in the district behind LPA). Overall, Mosaic recognizes that students have opportunities to grow in technical math and science. This will be a focus goal for the future. Mo saic was recorded with an F. They were hampered because they did not have sufficient data to earn points for the High School Components even where performance was high, like graduation rate. Their grade next y ear will be much better r eflection of students proficiency and growth. This early low grade is based only on the FCAT components. In prior years, small and new schools were somewhat protected during their first y ear(s) with very small numbers of students across categories because the minimum cell size to count for School Grades was 30. This is the first year that the DOE r educed the cell size to 10 students in each category. D ue to their very small cell sizes in several places, they had difficulty accumulating adequate points across all categories, and they were not given credit for any of the high school components due to small cell size. No schools were penalized for lack of learning gains among lowest performing students and no school had to be supported by the rule limiting grade drops to one letter grade.

county banning swimming, all because of polluted water being dumped by the locks and discharged from Lake Okeechobee. This was one of many protests across the area over the past several months. Pr otecting the lagoon F or 20 years, ever since the EPA put standards in place dictating where the r unoff from Lake Okeechobee could be routed, the 156-mile Indian River Lagoon has been suffering. Dolphins are dying, oysters are disappearing and entire underwater ecosystems are disintegrating and r esidents just cant take it anymore. T wo billion gallons of discharges a day from the lake include pollutants like fertilizer, waste, and other chemicals and are being diverted from their natural southern flow directly into the Indian River Lagoon. Local marine life is suffering the consequences. B lack muck lines the ri verbeds, detrimental algae is taking over, vital sea grasses are vanishing, and a delicate ecosystem that relies on the complete health of the waterways is fading, a significant problem for the most diverse ecosystem in No r th America. C ongressman reflects on first year F or U.S. Congressman P atrick Murphy its hard to believe its already been a y ear since he was elected. M uch of the work he has been doing has been advocating for local waterways. He was part of the Water R esources Development Act that benefitted the everglades and has even taken a sample of polluted river water to the House floor to urge action. The Congressman has also been heavily involved in the countrys financial issues, leading the SAVE Act and helping find a way to eliminate wasteful government spending. Assisting veterans has been a priority, too, as he aims to provide them with more job opportunities. In between his trips to W ashington D.C. he could frequently be found at fundraisers, Chamber luncheons and hundreds of other local events as he immersed himself in the district he represents. All of which he has done while attempting to reduce negative partisan attitudes in Washington. C ommunity gathers to fight crime An estimated 800 concerned members of the community packed into the auditorium at Lincoln Park A cademy on July 31 to voice their opinions on how to help eradicate city-wide violence. The panel of more than 20 city leaders, including Sheriff Ken Mascara, Fort Pierce P olice Chief Sean Baldwin and forum organizer State Re p. Larry Lee Jr., listened to residents ideas of what can be done to make the community a safer place to live. They also offered their opinions on what the residents can do to help law enforcement lower crime r ates. At that point in 2013, there had been an estimated 35 shootings in the city, r esulting in five deaths.

LUCIE COUNTY Q uotaysha Jones, 29, a fifth-grade Mariposa Elementary teacher, was arrested Dec. 20, at the end of the school day, on a felony sexual assault-related charge. Ms. Jones was released S aturday afternoon from the S t. Lucie County Jail after posting a $5,000 bail. D etectives began investigating Ms. Jones after getting information she was having an inappropriate relationship with the boy, an inmate at the St. Lucie County jail. D etectives reviewed video r ecordings of 39 visits between Ms. Jones and the teen. It became clear to detectives the two were having a romantic relationship.

Discrimination against single people?A local golf course charges a married couple $1,203 for an annual membership but they charge single people $1,792. Why are they charging them $500 more? Why do they discriminate against single people? Thats not right. L eave dogs homeI recently went to an art show and was surprised by the number of dogs present. Dogs dont know a thing about art. I didnt go there to see and hear dogs. I went to view art. I dont understand why some people feel it necessary to bring one, two and three dogs to those types of events. I have a dog, and I wouldnt bring him to an art show. Some dog owners are so inconsiderate.F acing childhood obesity I worry about the children who are overweight. I think that this attention and measurement is detrimental. It will hold children up to the ridicule of their peers. Ye s, tell the schools to have healthy choices of fruits and veggies. Yes, get rid of the vending machines. Yes, get back to two or three recesses, with one being a structured exercise class, per day. Yes, have health classes explaining the v alue of healthy eating and daily exercise. No do not measure a child's body fat and no do not send a form home to the parent to tell them their child is overw eight. Come on, use some common sense. Why hurt a child, emotionally, in a quest for social engineering? Clean up after your pupThe park walk is a dogs delight. Tr ees, birds, squirrels and you. What more could he want? How about when he does the do? Do you grab a bag and pick up the pooh before it gets on my shoe? There's more to being a good owner and my neighbor than puppy kisses, playing ball and pats on the head.Put an end to gossipIm so sorry Im stuck here with you. Im talking about the 85 percent of the population who likes to spread r umors and lies someone else made up. Ye s, people make up lies to suit their needs. It sometimes seems all people have is to talk poorly about others. Ju dging and gossiping is used to divide, not unite. Whenever you find (or think you find) fault in others through being self-righteous, it is often based on fear, ignorance and sometimes hatred. Before spreading gossip: 1. Wonder if its really true or something embellished. Ne ver take hearsay as truth and never pass it along. 2. How do you know if it is or isnt true? Do you know where it started? Does it seem too unreal to be true? If so, it probably is false. 3. Who started it? Was their perception and interpretation correct or something imagined? 4. If you spread lies and degrade others does this make y ou feel superior? 5. Are you already living in fear? Do parents unconsciously put fear in their children? 6. In the end, lies and gossip can ruin a whole community. Do your part and stop rumors before they start and ruin y our community or put you in fear unnecessarily. Find the truth, its easy. P lato said, Dont commit haphazard talk. Speak only the truth. If you dont really know, all you have is your imagination. So you might as well jump over the cliff. Youll be happier without judgment. Try it. Enjoy healing speech for the holidays. You are no better than anyone else. Get used to it. O therwise, start running. Anyone can make up a lie about y ou, too.Congestion is too muchIve been living in Vero Beach close to 30 years. The congestion is getting too much. Why cant something be done? There are no grocery stores on route 60 near the I-95 exit and its too crowded to get to the one near Oslo and 58th. What are those who live in the trailer parks supposed to do?Remove the homelessCity officials in Fort Pierce need to do something about the quality of life in the city. There are boarding houses off U.S. 1, and homeless people living everywhere. They are panhandling and lining the streets in downtown Fort Pierce. We need to move them near the I-95 exit. Self-centered AmericansAmericans never cease to amaze me. They are self-centered and conceited. They think they are the smartest on earth. They think they have invented everything. Everyone should have a corrupt government like us and have thieving businessmen like us. What can you expect from a polyglot nation thats made up of misfits? U nlike most industrial nations, Americans lack class and culture. We are like a herd of wild animals. We stole everything from the Indians and the Mexicans, but have claimed this land as ours. L egal aliens have it easyY ou want free health care, public schooling, and in-state tuition, welfare and driver licenses for illegal aliens all in hope of votes and what you see as loyal minions. D id it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you will all be voted out? W ake up. They already have their own people ready to step in. I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave soldiers votes. At least some felons are legal citizens. What part of illegal is so hard to understand? Crossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and holding a license is a privilege. I know a few people that have been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of identity theft and giving out false social security numbers? Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My daughters could not cross lines to attend public schools, y et illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My children could not travel to an out of state school and expect to get in-state tuition, yet we give them to illegal aliens not to mention every form of public aid and top priority for scholarships. There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now, the M exican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be patriotic to a country they fled, in our homeland; yet, we have to fight to be patriotic in our own country. Enough is enough; Id move my family to Mexico when it finally empties out, but guess what, you can never become a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is protected by the military.

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Acouple of weeks ago we r an my article on going to www.speedtest.net to check the speed of your internet connection. Now, speedtest.net has been around for a long time and they do have a solid r eputation for giving unbiased results to people who visit the site to check their internet speed but there is one fly in the ointment that people need to watch out for advertisements. Like many sites out there that provide a free service, they make enough money to stay online by running advertisements. P eople often ask me how services like SpeedTest.net can offer their service for free and most of the time they do it with ads that line the top, bottom and sides of their website. Just about every site out there from Y ahoo.com to Facebook use advertisements to fund their business so the presence of ads on a website comes as no surprise to me. After a while you learn to tune them out and thats an important skill to acquire. Just like when you watch TV you automatically tune out the advertisements, when you are surfing the web you have to learn to tune out the ads that are a constant companion every step of the way. M any of the websites that r un banner ads often have many ads loaded up in a r otation. That means that each time you visit the site y ou may see a different ad then you saw the last time that you visited the site. U nfortunately there are unscrupulous advertisers out on the internet that use trickery to lure unsuspecting people into clicking their ad by disguising their ads to look like they are a legitimate part of the website that the ad is hosted on. And this is the pitfall that some r eaders emailed and called to complain about. Y ou see, S peedTest.net does run ads at the top, bottom and sides of their page. The complaints that I got were from readers who had visited the site and were tricked by the clever wording and design of one of the banner ads in the rotation. The ad in question used the same color background as the SpeedTest page and added a button that said something like Before you begin the test, click here to speed up your computer. Clicking the button whisks the unsuspecting visitor away from the SpeedTest site and then convinces the user to install some system optimization crap that has nothing to do with S peedTest. And SpeedTest.net isnt the only site that has had this form of hijacking forced upon its users. Ive seen similar ads at Download.com where you go to download a particular piece of software and there are ads all over the place that say Download Now in the hopes that people will click the ad thinking that the ad is the correct button to complete their download. It s enough to drive you nuts! So what lesson can we take away from this? Well the first thing Id like to point out is that when I write a column like the one I wrote about SpeedTest.net I give specific instructions. In that column I wrote go to www.speedtest.net and click the begin test button. I didnt write speedtest.com, I didnt write click the click here to speed up your computer button and I certainly did not instruct anyone to download and install anything. Its important to stay on task and if something deviates from instructions slow down for a second and look for the button that I did say to click. If you ever have any trouble following the instructions in one of my columns, stop and give me a call. My number is at the end of every column and Ill be happy to help. I know the internet can be a tricky place especially if youre not computer savvy.

I was surprised to read an article on the front page of todays New York Times, headlined, More Retailers S ee Haggling as a Price of Doing Business. The story goes on to say that many retailers who always sold their products and services at fixed prices, now are haggling with their customers. Some examples of companies going to haggling are Best Buy, Home D epot, Lowes, Nordstroms and Bloomingdales! Up until now, the only businesses that wont give y ou a firm price are car dealers. This is one of the biggest reasons that that the car buying experience is r anked as worse than that of buying any other product. Y ou know what Im talking about. If you ask most car dealers for a price, whether its by phone, email, or in person, you cant get a firm price until youre willing to sign on the dotted line. The car dealers wont give y ou their lowest price before you commit to buy because they dont want to allow you the privilege to shop and compare their price with their competition. The car salesman tells y ou, If youre going to shop for a lower price, go ahead, but then come back with y our best price and Ill beat it. Of course, the car salesmen at the competing dealerships tell you the same thing and youre trapped in an endless loop! Finally, exhausted and frustrated, y ou succumb to the next car salesman you see, paying the higher price because nobody will give their best price unless you agree to buy right then. The reason I was surprised to see stores like B loomingdales and Best B uy regressing to haggling ov er prices is that I thought car dealers were simply an anachronism, having failed to see the light of modern marketing. Haggling was commonplace in the 19th and earlier parts of the 20th century. Its still common in third world countries. But, ov er the last century consumers have become for more educated, sophisticated and demanding. As important as the evolution of the consumer has been the explosion of the internet. The brain of the consumer was exponentially augmented with the birth of the Internet in the latter half of the 20th century. W ith a few keystrokes, todays consumer can find the best price on virtually any product or service she wants to purchase. Not only can you find the best price but you can compare the quality and reliability of competing products and the integrity and reputation of those companies selling those products and services. Its been said that the sum total of human knowledge doubles every 10 years. B ut up until recently, that knowledge wasnt instantly available to us. T oday, you can Google anything you want to know within seconds or minutes. This may explain why H ome Depot, Nordstroms, B loomingdales, and other modern retailers are beginning to haggle. They know that you can walk into their stores, pick out a sink or a dress that you would like to buy, and find a lower price on your iPhone. Most of these stores dont advertise that they will do this, but if you ask to speak to a manager, they will reduce their price to meet or beat the lower price you found on Amazon.com or elsewhere. The Internet is the greatest thing thats happened to the consumer in the history of the world. If you dont shop on the Internet for everything you wish to buy, yo u re missing the boat. A mazon.com is, by far, the leader in Internet general r etailing and TrueCar.com is the leader in automobile internet retailing. This trend is growing very fast and I predict that in the not too distant future you will buy virtually all of your products and services on the internet. Ph ysical stores as we know them today will become showrooms because pople still like to see, touch, smell and try out or drive a product before they buy it. In my opinion, the stores like Bloomingdales that are r egressing to haggling are making a huge mistake. Over a year ago, I made the decision to give my customers the lowest price on all of my new and used cars r ather than requiring them to negotiate to get the best price. In retrospect, it was one of the best marketing moves I ever made. My sales and profits are soaring. Ev en though my prices are lower now, my volume has more than offset the smaller profits I make on each car. The reason my volume is soaring is because most car buyers dont like to haggle. They consider it time consumer and demeaning. T odays sophisticated consumer doesnt have the time or the patience to play the car dealers games. O ther car dealers ask me, B ut dont your customers take your best price and show it to your competitor to see if they can get a lower price? I answer them, Of course they do! This is the way products are supposed to be bought and sold. The consumer should be entitled to find the best price for everything they buy. Sometimes my price is not the lowest and the consumer buys from my competition. This is the way its supposed to be in a free marketplace. I try to make sure my price is lower than my competition but it isnt always. But, I get to talk to a lot more potential buyers than my competitors. The reason for this is that Im the only car dealer in the market that will give prospective customers the lowest price on any car without a lot of time consuming haggling and game playing. A customer can get my lowest price by phone, email, text, or face to face. I gain far more customers because of this than I lose because my competition offers a lower price. I also have customers who r eturn and buy from me simply because they like the way I do business even though my price is a few dollars higher. This happens a lot when they find out that the price the other dealer offered that seemed lower r eally wasnt when they we re surprised with extra charges like dealer fees and dealer installed accessories. So my advice to Bloomingdales, Home Depot, Best Bu y, and all of the other r etailers that are regressing to haggling is DONT DO IT! Sh ow y our customers the r espect of giving them your lowest price and allowing them their right to shop and compare your price with y our competition. Also, show your customers that y ou havent told you will haggle, a little courtesy by not offering their more savvy friends and neighbors a lower price. Do you love to haggle?

With the holiday season underway, many of us will be hitting the local nurseries for new plants that will enhance your yard after the holidays have passed. This week, I am listing some common plant terms and what they mean. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to plant terminology. If you have any other plant terms you would like defined in future columns, drop me a line at the e-mail address in the bottom of the article. The first area that I will cover is some of your basic plant categories. The first and most popular group of plants is called annuals. Annuals are simply defined as plants that complete their life cycle in a single growing season. The complete cycle from seed to the plant dying off is completed in one season. S ome examples of annuals are impatiens, marigolds and begonias. Pe r ennial plants are another group that is very popular. Perennials are defined as plants that live for more than one growing season. There are basically two types of perennials: P lants that die off in the winter and send out new shoots in the spring and plants that live year round. P lants that live year round and grow larger each year are defined as woody perennials. Many of your most common flowering shrubs fall into this category Some common examples are Plumbago and Lirope. If y ou own rose bushes, a common term that will pop up is black spot. Black spot is commonly defined as a disease of the foliage of r oses that is caused by moisture. The best way to help avoid black spot is not to plant your roses in the path of your sprinklers. This will help avoid the leaves being constantly wet which is how this disease often starts. You can treat black spot by spraying with F unginex or using liquid copper. If you prefer a natural cure, try using one teaspoon per gallon and spray on the plant in early morning before the hot sun hits the plants. M ealy bugs are a common insect problem that affects many of our favorite ornamentals. Mealy bugs are defined as a scale-like plant-eating insect that is coated with a powdery, waxy secretion. These pests are very destructive and feed on the inner juices of the plant robbing it of needed nutrition. These pests can often be controlled with Orthenex or other like insecticides. Scale is another common problem of many ornamentals and unlike the mealy bug, which has a cottony secretion; the residue on the leaves is usually of a harder consistency. Scale insects also have piercingsucking mouthparts that allow them to use the sap of the plant as food. This can cause severe dieback in most plants that are infected. Scale can be very difficult to control and a systemic insecticide is the best choice. The pH of your soil can be an important factor as to what type of plants that you might want to place in a given location. Soil pH is defined as the amount of lime (calcium) that is contained in your soil. If y our soil pH is lower than 7 then you have acidic soil and plants such as Gardenia, Ixoria and Hibiscus will do well. If your pH is higher than 7 then you have alkaline soil, which will support other plant varieties that require a lower acid content. You can test your soil pH easily with a home test kit available at many lawn and garden centers. I hope you enjoyed this mini seminar and found the information useful.

TREASURE COAST I ndian River State College Cr iminal Justice students collected hundreds of S tockings to Soldiers donations for several weeks to help support the active military serving abroad during the holidays. The concept was to provide individuals, especially those who receive nothing during the holidays, with a Christmas stocking containing a snack, a small game, toiletries, and a Christmas card with the option of providing the name and address of the person donating. The students placed collection boxes at several locations throughout South F lorida and were entirely r esponsible for collecting and organizing the items. The students also made their own generous contributions with cases of soups, noodles, crackers and other snack items. W ith the help of monetary donations, the Stockings to Soldiers items will be shipped in time for the holidays.

By now we have all opened those gifts and found either gold or coal. Today one of the most popular gifts is a simple gift card. This allows y ou to use the funds on the card for whatever you want. U nless its for a specific store or restaurant. So y our conundrum may be deciding which golf clubs you want to spend that money on. Are todays clubs worth the investment? One of the fortunate perks of my job is being able to test and review the latest in golf equipment technology. My bag usually has an extra club or three, or an extra sleeve of new balls to try out and then r eport my findings back to the manufacturer. M any of my golf buddies get to try the clubs as I need input from more than just one person. The question I find myself asked most often by my fellow golfers is Does the technology really change that much from y ear to year to warrant me spending money on new clubs? It s a good question. When most of us are watching every nickel and dime, spending a few hundred dollars on that new driver or even more on new irons may be difficult to justify. Especially if your spouse or partner doesnt play golf. W ith the size limits on drivers set at a maximum of 460cc, manufacturers have taken to putting as much technology as possible into that space. They now use exotic materials and move w eight around to put it to better use. They have also made it so that we can make adjustments ourselves to our drivers. We can set the loft, open or close the face, and more. Dr ivers no longer have grooves on the face. They have etching that resembles grooves. This allows the face to be made thinner, with less chance of breakage. The thinner face is livelier, producing more ball speed and the weight savings allows designers to put that weight in places where it will help you hit the ball straighter. The r esult is a driver that is easier to hit farther and straighter than those from a few years ago. The biggest leaps in clubs have come in the manufacturing process. Companies use CNC milling to make the faces of irons perfectly flat. They use lasers to cut the grooves to NASA-like precision. W ith todays technology, its possible to build irons with multiple materials instead of just steel. T itanium has a 42 percent lighter density than steel, while tungsten is twice as heavy. Using these materials allows designers to move weight to places that help optimize the center of gravity on the club. The lower and deeper they can place the COG, the higher and straighter the ball launches. T odays irons are all strong-lofted. The loft of y our new pitching wedge may be closer to what you had in your 9 or 8-iron y ears back. However, by using different materials in the head and moving the C OG, they keep the same trajectory of the old iron, but with greater distance. Im agine a ball coming off the face of your 8-iron with the same high trajectory, but with 6-iron speed. You get a shot that drops softly, while traveling farther. Ca sting processes have come a long way, too. C ompanies have the ability to cast faces less than two millimeters thick. Designers then use that weight savings to increase perimeter weighting, improving forgiveness. M ost important is that the ability to cast this technology and design improves mass production and lowers costs, giving us a more affordable club with state-of-the-art technology. At one time all forged clubs were muscle-backs with little forgiveness, making them difficult for r ecreational golfers to play and enjoy. With CNC milling machines and lasers, designers can now carve portions from the forged heads giving them the same perimeter weighting once found only in cast clubs. C omputer simulators also play a role in measuring the drag forces of a design as it goes through the grass. This allows designers to adjust the sole of the iron to optimize how it reacts when it strikes the ground and then adjust their design to make the club more efficient for its target audience. We all want feel in our clubs. It usually tells us how w ell or poorly we struck a shot. Designers are now able to measure the sound waves emitted by a club as it strikes a ball at various points on the face. Engineers then design and implement dampening inserts and stiffening ribs to make the club sound and feel better. We v e come a long way in Spending a gift card on new clubs?

ST. LUCIE COUNTY As 2013 comes to a close we are r emembering some of the stories from the past year. Officer killed in line of duty Sgt. Gary Morales, a St. Lucie C ounty deputy, was shot and killed the morning of Feb. 28 during a r outine traffic stop. S t. Lucie County, as well as state leaders, joined officers in their dress blues, relatives and friends of Sgt. Morales, who lived in Port St. L ucie but was well-known all over the county. He joined the St. Lucie Sheriff's Office 12 years ago, and the awards continued, with the most r ecent being a promotion in January, 2013, to Sergeant Deputy. On the morning of Feb. 28, he made a traffic stop in the 3200 block of Naylor Terrace, just south of Edwards Road south of Fort Pierce in unincorporated St. Lucie C ounty. Sgt. Morales left behind a wife, H olly, and two daughters Brooklynn and Jordan, along with numerous family members, including his brother, St. Lucie County Deputy S heriff Brad Morales. Mr. Tisdale is currently being held without bond, and has been charged with premeditated first degree murder, assault on an officer, possession of a w eapon by a convicted felon and fleeing the scene. Lagoon protests As many as 6,000 concerned residents gathered at P hipps Park in Stuart Aug. 3 to stand up for their local waterways and protest the contaminated water being dumped into the St. Lucie River despite the rain. B efore the march, attendees listened to brief presentations by organizers Evan Miller and Clint S tarling and Mark Perry of the Florida Oceanographic society meant to educate as to why the river is in the condition it is.

T radition Medical Center opens its doorsTRADITION After 15 y ears of planning and preparation, Martin Health S ystem realized its vision of bringing high-quality health care to the residents of west Port St. Lucie with the opening of Tradition M edical Center. The doors to the hospital opened De c. 18 at 7 a.m. Tr adition Medical Center is a 201,184-square-foot, 90-bed acute care hospital. In addition to emergency care, the hospital offers general and specialized medical care, general and specialized surgical services, an intensive care unit, labor and delivery services, and a neonatal intensive care unit. Full diagnostic imaging and laboratory services are also available. In its first year, the medical center anticipates 30,000 visits to its emergency department, 6,000 patient admissions and 1,500 births. The six-floor structure was designed to be able to expand as needed in the future, with an eventual total capacity of 300 beds. "F or years, residents of w est Port St. Lucie and surr ounding communities told us there was a significant need for access to medical services in the area," said Mark E. R obitaille, president and chief executive officer of Ma r tin Health. "This hospital is testament to our organization's commitment to meeting the health care needs of our community." Located on the Tradition C enter for Innovation campus, the medical center joins Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies, the V accine and Gene Therapy I nstitute of Florida, and the M ann Research Center.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY S t. Lucie County shared the good news that local high school performance r ates are continuing to improve. "S t. Lucie Public Schools have become more goalfocused in the area of student performance," said Genelle Yost, superintendent. "The goal-focused implementation process is designed to help schools evaluate current functioning and identify research-based interventions to address targets and goals. Positive changes are documented within our detailed results preliminarily released by the DOE this morning." F ort Pierce Central earned an A with 1131 points (71 percent) of all available points. LPA continued its high performance with an A earned with 1,315 points (77 percent of available points). LPA has maintained an accountability grade of "A" since 2002. Treasure Coast at 1,064 points earned the points for an A. This represents a strong record of success; however, they were penalized due to a one-year decline in the at-risk graduation rate. This particular penalty prevents a school from earning an A, regardless of points earned. St Lucie West Centennial earned a strong B this year with 1,014 points. Progress was steady for Centennial in Assessment percent as well as most of the High School components. However, Regular and At-Risk Graduation R ates were down slightly in both the 4-yr and the 5-yr r ates. This accounted for a small decline in points earned. In addition, these small declines made SLWCHS ineligible for bonus points which contributed to their strong performance last year. Port St. Lucie earned a C with 944 grade points. This r epresents consistent performance across the last two y ears. F ort Pierce Westwood earned a D with 865 points this year, five points from a C. This represents a strong performance. Postsecondary Readiness in R eading improved by 21 points (43 total points in 2012 and 64 points in 2013). The At-Risk Graduation Rate for 2013 improved by 14 points. Learning gains in R eading and Math for the lowest 25 percent have been documented for 2013. Mosaic, in their first year with an assigned grade, obtained an overall 4-year graduation rate of 73 percent and this score is not calculated into their accountability grade due to small cell sizes. Students reached 59 percent proficiency in Reading (second highest percentage in the district behind LPA). Overall, Mosaic recognizes that students have opportunities to grow in technical math and science. This will be a focus goal for the future. Mo saic was recorded with an F. They were hampered because they did not have sufficient data to earn points for the High School Components even where performance was high, like graduation rate. Their grade next y ear will be much better r eflection of students' proficiency and growth. This early low grade is based only on the FCAT components. In prior years, small and new schools were somewhat protected during their first y ear(s) with very small numbers of students across categories because the minimum cell size to count for School Grades was 30. This is the first year that the DOE r educed the cell size to 10 students in each category. D ue to their very small cell sizes in several places, they had difficulty accumulating adequate points across all categories, and they were not given credit for any of the high school components due to small cell size. No schools were penalized for lack of learning gains among lowest performing students and no school had to be supported by the rule limiting grade drops to one letter grade.

county banning swimming, all because of polluted water being dumped by the locks and discharged from Lake O keechobee. This was one of many protests across the area over the past several months. Pr otecting the lagoon F or 20 years, ever since the EPA put standards in place dictating where the r unoff from Lake Okeechobee could be routed, the 156-mile Indian River Lagoon has been suffering. Dolphins are dying, oysters are disappearing and entire underwater ecosystems are disintegrating and r esidents just can't take it anymore. T wo billion gallons of discharges a day from the lake include pollutants like fertilizer, waste, and other chemicals and are being diverted from their natural southern flow directly into the Indian River Lagoon. Local marine life is suffering the consequences. B lack muck lines the ri verbeds, detrimental algae is taking over, vital sea grasses are vanishing, and a delicate ecosystem that relies on the complete health of the waterways is fading, a significant problem for the most diverse ecosystem in No r th America. C ongressman reflects on first year F or U.S. Congressman P atrick Murphy it's hard to believe it's already been a y ear since he was elected. M uch of the work he has been doing has been advocating for local waterways. He was part of the Water R esources Development Act that benefitted the everglades and has even taken a sample of polluted river water to the House floor to urge action. The Congressman has also been heavily involved in the country's financial issues, leading the SAVE Act and helping find a way to eliminate wasteful government spending. Assisting veterans has been a priority, too, as he aims to provide them with more job opportunities. In between his trips to W ashington D.C. he could frequently be found at fundraisers, Chamber luncheons and hundreds of other local events as he immersed himself in the district he represents. All of which he has done while attempting to reduce negative partisan attitudes in Washington. C ommunity gathers to fight crime An estimated 800 concerned members of the community packed into the auditorium at Lincoln Park A cademy on July 31 to voice their opinions on how to help eradicate city-wide violence. The panel of more than 20 city leaders, including Sheriff Ken Mascara, Fort Pierce P olice Chief Sean Baldwin and forum organizer State Re p. Larry Lee Jr., listened to residents' ideas of what can be done to make the community a safer place to live. They also offered their opinions on what the residents' can do to help law enforcement lower crime r ates. At that point in 2013, there had been an estimated 35 shootings in the city, r esulting in five deaths.

LUCIE COUNTY Q uotaysha Jones, 29, a fifth-grade Mariposa Elementary teacher, was arrested Dec. 20, at the end of the school day, on a felony sexual assault-related charge. Ms. Jones was released S aturday afternoon from the S t. Lucie County Jail after posting a $5,000 bail. D etectives began investigating Ms. Jones after getting information she was having an inappropriate relationship with the boy, an inmate at the St. Lucie County jail. D etectives reviewed video r ecordings of 39 visits between Ms. Jones and the teen. It became clear to detectives the two were having a romantic relationship. D etectives interviewed Ms. Jones and the boy. While Ms. Jones told them her relationship with the boy is nonsexual, however, the boy said he and Ms. Jones were in a dating relationship. The boy, now 17, told detectives he and Ms. Jones had sex four to six times. The boy also said he didn't want Ms. Jones arrested, according to the report. The boy, who was adjudicated an adult for the purposes of incarceration, is in the St. Lucie County Jail on a felony drug-related charge and two misdemeanor charges. Schools Superintendent Genelle Yost said Jones will be removed from the classr oom and a substitute will be hired. District staff members will review the case before the next School Board meeting which is scheduled for Jan. 14.F or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com See C RIME, A8

Berry looking on at the graduation ceremony for Indian River State College Basic Fire Recruit Academy's class No. 140 was held at the Treasure Coast Public Safety Training Complex in Fort Pierce on Tuesday, Dec. 12. Discrimination against single people?A local golf course charges a married couple $1,203 for an annual membership but they charge single people $1,792. Why are they charging them $500 more? Why do they discriminate against single people? That's not right. L eave dogs homeI recently went to an art show and was surprised by the number of dogs present. Dogs don't know a thing about art. I didn't go there to see and hear dogs. I went to view art. I don't understand why some people feel it necessary to bring one, two and three dogs to those types of events. I have a dog, and I wouldn't bring him to an art show. Some dog owners are so inconsiderate.F acing childhood obesity I worry about the children who are overweight. I think that this attention and measurement is detrimental. It will hold children up to the ridicule of their peers. Ye s, tell the schools to have healthy choices of fruits and veggies. Yes, get rid of the vending machines. Yes, get back to two or three recesses, with one being a structured exercise class, per day. Yes, have health classes explaining the v alue of healthy eating and daily exercise. No do not measure a child's body fat and no do not send a form home to the parent to tell them their child is overw eight. Come on, use some common sense. Why hurt a child, emotionally, in a quest for social engineering? Clean up after your pupThe park walk is a dog's delight. Tr ees, birds, squirrels and you. What more could he want? How about when he does the do? Do you grab a bag and pick up the pooh before it gets on my shoe? There's more to being a good owner and my neighbor than puppy kisses, playing ball and pats on the head.Put an end to gossipI'm so sorry I'm stuck here with you. I'm talking about the 85 percent of the population who likes to spread r umors and lies someone else made up. Ye s, people make up lies to suit their needs. It sometimes seems all people have is to talk poorly about others. Ju dging and gossiping is used to divide, not unite. Whenever you find (or think you find) fault in others through being self-righteous, it is often based on fear, ignorance and sometimes hatred. Before spreading gossip: 1. Wonder if it's really true or something embellished. Ne ver take hearsay as truth and never pass it along. 2. How do you know if it is or isn't true? Do you know where it started? Does it seem too unreal to be true? If so, it probably is false. 3. Who started it? Was their perception and interpretation correct or something imagined? 4. If you spread lies and degrade others does this make y ou feel superior? 5. Are you already living in fear? Do parents unconsciously put fear in their children? 6. In the end, lies and gossip can ruin a whole community. Do your part and stop rumors before they start and ruin y our community or put you in fear unnecessarily. Find the truth, it's easy. P lato said, "Don't commit haphazard talk. Speak only the truth." If y ou don't really know, all you have is your imagination. So you might as well jump over the cliff. You'll be happier without judgment. Try it. Enjoy healing speech for the holidays. You are no better than anyone else. Get used to it. O therwise, start running. Anyone can make up a lie about y ou, too.Congestion is too muchI've been living in Vero Beach close to 30 years. The congestion is getting too much. Why can't something be done? There are no grocery stores on route 60 near the I-95 exit and it's too crowded to get to the one near Oslo and 58th. What are those who live in the trailer parks supposed to do?Remove the homelessCity officials in Fort Pierce need to do something about the quality of life in the city. There are boarding houses off U.S. 1, and homeless people living everywhere. They are panhandling and lining the streets in downtown Fort Pierce. We need to move them near the I-95 exit. Self-centered AmericansAmericans never cease to amaze me. They are self-centered and conceited. They think they are the smartest on earth. They think they have invented everything. Everyone should have a corrupt government like us and have thieving businessmen like us. What can you expect from a polyglot nation that's made up of misfits? U nlike most industrial nations, Americans lack class and culture. We are like a herd of wild animals. We stole everything from the Indians and the Mexicans, but have claimed this land as ours. L egal aliens have it easyY ou want free health care, public schooling, and in-state tuition, welfare and driver licenses for illegal aliens all in hope of votes and what you see as loyal minions. D id it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you will all be voted out? W ake up. They already have their own people ready to step in. I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave soldier's votes. At least some felons are legal citizens. What part of illegal is so hard to understand? Cr ossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and holding a license is a privilege. I know a few people that have been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of identity theft and giving out false social security numbers? Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My daughters could not cross lines to attend public schools, y et illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My children could not travel to an out of state school and expect to get in-state tuition, yet we give them to illegal aliens not to mention every form of public aid and top priority for scholarships. There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now, the M exican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be patriotic to a country they fled, in our homeland; yet, we have to fight to be patriotic in our own country. Enough is enough; I'd move my family to Mexico when it finally empties out, but guess what, you can never become a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is protected by the military.

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Acouple of weeks ago we r an my article on going to www.speedtest.net to check the speed of your internet connection. Now, speedtest.net has been around for a long time and they do have a solid r eputation for giving unbiased results to people who visit the site to check their internet speed but there is one fly in the ointment that people need to watch out for advertisements. Like many sites out there that provide a free service, they make enough money to stay online by running advertisements. P eople often ask me how services like SpeedTest.net can offer their service for free and most of the time they do it with ads that line the top, bottom and sides of their website. Just about every site out there from Y ahoo.com to Facebook use advertisements to fund their business so the presence of ads on a website comes as no surprise to me. After a while you learn to tune them out and that's an important skill to acquire. Just like when you watch TV you automatically tune out the advertisements, when you are surfing the web you have to learn to tune out the ads that are a constant companion every step of the way. M any of the websites that r un banner ads often have many ads loaded up in a r otation. That means that each time you visit the site y ou may see a different ad then you saw the last time that you visited the site. U nfortunately there are unscrupulous advertisers out on the internet that use trickery to lure unsuspecting people into clicking their ad by disguising their ads to look like they are a legitimate part of the website that the ad is hosted on. And this is the pitfall that some r eaders emailed and called to complain about. Y ou see, S peedTest.net does run ads at the top, bottom and sides of their page. The complaints that I got were from readers who had visited the site and were tricked by the clever wording and design of one of the banner ads in the rotation. The ad in question used the same color background as the SpeedTest page and added a button that said something like "Before you begin the test, click here to speed up your computer." Clicking the button whisks the unsuspecting visitor away from the SpeedTest site and then convinces the user to install some system optimization crap that has nothing to do with S peedTest. And SpeedTest.net isn't the only site that has had this form of hijacking forced upon its users. I've seen similar ads at Download.com where you go to download a particular piece of software and there are ads all over the place that say "Download Now" in the hopes that people will click the ad thinking that the ad is the correct button to complete their download. It 's enough to drive you nuts! So what lesson can we take away from this? Well the first thing I'd like to point out is that when I write a column like the one I wrote about SpeedTest.net I give specific instructions. In that column I wrote "go to www.speedtest.net and click the begin test' button." I didn't write speedtest.com, I didn't write "click the click here to speed up your computer' button" and I certainly did not instruct anyone to download and install anything. It's important to stay on task and if something deviates from instructions slow down for a second and look for the button that I did say to click. If y ou ever have any trouble following the instructions in one of my columns, stop and give me a call. My number is at the end of every column and I'll be happy to help. I know the internet can be a tricky place especially if you're not computer savvy.

I was surprised to read an article on the front page of today's New York Times, headlined, "More Retailers S ee Haggling as a Price of Doing Business." The story goes on to say that many retailers who always sold their products and services at fixed prices, now are haggling with their customers. Some examples of companies going to haggling are Best Buy, Home D epot, Lowes, Nordstrom's and Bloomingdales! Up until now, the only businesses that won't give y ou a firm price are car dealers. This is one of the biggest reasons that that the car buying experience is r anked as worse than that of buying any other product. Y ou know what I'm talking about. If you ask most car dealers for a price, whether it's by phone, email, or in person, you can't get a firm price until you're willing to sign on the dotted line." The car dealers won't give y ou their lowest price before you commit to buy because they don't want to allow you the privilege to shop and compare their price with their competition. The car salesman tells y ou, "If you're going to shop for a lower price, go ahead, but then come back with y our best price and I'll beat it." Of course, the car salesmen at the competing dealerships tell you the same thing and you're trapped in an endless loop! Finally, exhausted and frustrated, y ou succumb to the next car salesman you see, paying the higher price because nobody will give their best price unless you agree to buy right then. The reason I was surprised to see stores like B loomingdales and Best B uy regressing to haggling ov er prices is that I thought car dealers were simply an anachronism, having failed to "see the light" of modern marketing. Haggling was commonplace in the 19th and earlier parts of the 20th century. It's still common in third world countries. But, ov er the last century consumers have become for more educated, sophisticated and demanding. As important as the evolution of the consumer has been the "explosion" of the internet. The brain of the consumer was exponentially augmented with the birth of the Internet in the latter half of the 20th century. W ith a few keystrokes, today's consumer can find the best price on virtually any product or service she wants to purchase. Not only can you find the best price but you can compare the quality and reliability of competing products and the integrity and reputation of those companies selling those products and services. It's been said that the sum total of human knowledge doubles every 10 years. B ut up until recently, that knowledge wasn't instantly available to us. T oday, you can "Google" anything you want to know within seconds or minutes. This may explain why H ome Depot, Nordstrom's, B loomingdales, and other modern" retailers are beginning to haggle. They know that you can walk into their stores, pick out a sink or a dress that you would like to buy, and find a lower price on your iPhone. Most of these stores don't advertise that they will do this, but if you ask to speak to a manager, they will reduce their price to meet or beat the lower price you found on Amazon.com or elsewhere. The Internet is the greatest thing that's happened to the consumer in the history of the world. If you don't shop on the Internet for everything you wish to buy, yo u' re missing the boat." A mazon.com is, by far, the leader in Internet general r etailing and TrueCar.com is the leader in automobile internet retailing. This trend is growing very fast and I predict that in the not too distant future you will buy virtually all of your products and services on the internet. Ph ysical stores as we know them today will become showrooms because pople still like to see, touch, smell and try out or "drive" a product before they buy it. In my opinion, the stores like Bloomingdales that are "r egressing" to haggling are making a huge mistake. Over a year ago, I made the decision to give my customers the lowest price on all of my new and used cars r ather than requiring them to negotiate to get the best price. In retrospect, it was one of the best marketing moves I ever made. My sales and profits are soaring. Ev en though my prices are lower now, my volume has more than offset the smaller profits I make on each car. The reason my volume is soaring is because most car buyers don't like to haggle. They consider it time consumer and demeaning. T oday's sophisticated consumer doesn't have the time or the patience to "play the car dealers' games." O ther car dealers ask me, "B ut don't your customers take your best price and show it to your competitor to see if they can get a lower price?" I answer them, "Of course they do! This is the way products are supposed to be bought and sold." The consumer should be entitled to find the best price for everything they buy. Sometimes my price is not the lowest and the consumer buys from my competition. This is the way it's supposed to be in a free marketplace. I try to make sure my price is lower than my competition but it isn't always. But, I get to talk to a lot more potential buyers than my competitors. The reason for this is that I'm the only car dealer in the market that will give prospective customers the lowest price on any car without a lot of time consuming haggling and game playing. A customer can get my lowest price by phone, email, text, or face to face. I gain far more customers because of this than I lose because my competition offers a lower price. I also have customers who r eturn and buy from me simply because they like the way I do business even though my price is a few dollars higher. This happens a lot when they find out that the price the other dealer offered that seemed lower r eally wasn't when they we re surprised with extra charges like "dealer fees" and "dealer installed accessories." So my advice to Bloomingdales, Home Depot, Best Bu y, and all of the other r etailers that are regressing to haggling is DON'T DO IT! Sh ow y our customers the r espect of giving them your lowest price and allowing them their right to shop and compare your price with y our competition. Also, show your customers that y ou haven't told you will haggle, a little courtesy by not offering their more savvy friends and neighbors a lower price. Do you love to haggle?

With the holiday season underway, many of us will be hitting the local nurseries for new plants that will enhance your yard after the holidays have passed. This week, I am listing some common plant terms and what they mean. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to plant terminology. If you have any other plant terms you would like defined in future columns, drop me a line at the e-mail address in the bottom of the article. The first area that I will cover is some of your basic plant categories. The first and most popular group of plants is called annuals. Annuals are simply defined as plants that complete their life cycle in a single growing season. The complete cycle from seed to the plant dying off is completed in one season. S ome examples of annuals are impatiens, marigolds and begonias. Pe r ennial plants are another group that is very popular. Perennials are defined as plants that live for more than one growing season. There are basically two types of perennials: P lants that die off in the winter and send out new shoots in the spring and plants that live year round. P lants that live year round and grow larger each year are defined as woody perennials. Many of your most common flowering shrubs fall into this category Some common examples are Plumbago and Lirope. If y ou own rose bushes, a common term that will pop up is black spot. Black spot is commonly defined as a disease of the foliage of r oses that is caused by moisture. The best way to help avoid black spot is not to plant your roses in the path of your sprinklers. This will help avoid the leaves being constantly wet which is how this disease often starts. You can treat black spot by spraying with F unginex or using liquid copper. If you prefer a natural cure, try using one teaspoon per gallon and spray on the plant in early morning before the hot sun hits the plants. M ealy bugs are a common insect problem that affects many of our favorite ornamentals. Mealy bugs are defined as a scale-like plant-eating insect that is coated with a powdery, waxy secretion. These pests are very destructive and feed on the inner juices of the plant robbing it of needed nutrition. These pests can often be controlled with Orthenex or other like insecticides. Scale is another common problem of many ornamentals and unlike the mealy bug, which has a cottony secretion; the residue on the leaves is usually of a harder consistency. Scale insects also have piercingsucking mouthparts that allow them to use the sap of the plant as food. This can cause severe dieback in most plants that are infected. Scale can be very difficult to control and a systemic insecticide is the best choice. The pH of your soil can be an important factor as to what type of plants that you might want to place in a given location. Soil pH is defined as the amount of lime (calcium) that is contained in your soil. If y our soil pH is lower than 7 then you have acidic soil and plants such as Gardenia, Ixoria and Hibiscus will do well. If your pH is higher than 7 then you have alkaline soil, which will support other plant varieties that require a lower acid content. You can test your soil pH easily with a home test kit available at many lawn and garden centers. I hope you enjoyed this mini seminar" and found the information useful.

TREASURE COAST I ndian River State College Cr iminal Justice students collected hundreds of "S tockings to Soldiers" donations for several weeks to help support the active military serving abroad during the holidays. The concept was to provide individuals, especially those who receive nothing during the holidays, with a Christmas stocking containing a snack, a small game, toiletries, and a Christmas card with the option of providing the name and address of the person donating. The students placed collection boxes at several locations throughout South F lorida and were entirely r esponsible for collecting and organizing the items. The students also made their own generous contributions with cases of soups, noodles, crackers and other snack items. W ith the help of monetary donations, the "Stockings to Soldiers" items will be shipped in time for the holidays.

By now we have all opened those gifts and found either gold or coal. Today one of the most popular gifts is a simple gift card. This allows y ou to use the funds on the card for whatever you want. U nless it's for a specific store or restaurant. So y our conundrum may be deciding which golf clubs you want to spend that money on. Are today's clubs worth the investment? One of the fortunate perks of my job is being able to test and review the latest in golf equipment technology. My bag usually has an extra club or three, or an extra sleeve of new balls to try out and then r eport my findings back to the manufacturer. M any of my golf buddies get to try the clubs as I need input from more than just one person. The question I find myself asked most often by my fellow golfers is Does the technology really change that much from y ear to year to warrant me spending money on new clubs?" It 's a good question. When most of us are watching every nickel and dime, spending a few hundred dollars on that new driver or even more on new irons may be difficult to justify. Especially if your spouse or partner doesnt play golf. W ith the size limits on drivers set at a maximum of 460cc, manufacturers have taken to putting as much technology as possible into that space. They now use exotic materials and move w eight around to put it to better use. They have also made it so that we can make adjustments ourselves to our drivers. We can set the loft, open or close the face, and more. Dr ivers no longer have grooves on the face. They have etching that resembles grooves. This allows the face to be made thinner, with less chance of breakage. The thinner face is livelier, producing more ball speed and the weight savings allows designers to put that weight in places where it will help you hit the ball straighter. The r esult is a driver that is easier to hit farther and straighter than those from a few years ago. The biggest leaps in clubs have come in the manufacturing process. Companies use CNC milling to make the faces of irons perfectly flat. They use lasers to cut the grooves to NASA-like precision. W ith today's technology, it's possible to build irons with multiple materials instead of just steel. T itanium has a 42 percent lighter density than steel, while tungsten is twice as heavy. Using these materials allows designers to move weight to places that help optimize the center of gravity on the club. The lower and deeper they can place the COG, the higher and straighter the ball launches. T oday's irons are all strong-lofted. The loft of y our new pitching wedge may be closer to what you had in your 9 or 8-iron y ears back. However, by using different materials in the head and moving the C OG, they keep the same trajectory of the old iron, but with greater distance. Im agine a ball coming off the face of your 8-iron with the same high trajectory, but with 6-iron speed. You get a shot that drops softly, while traveling farther. Ca sting processes have come a long way, too. C ompanies have the ability to cast faces less than two millimeters thick. Designers then use that weight savings to increase perimeter weighting, improving forgiveness. M ost important is that the ability to cast this technology and design improves mass production and lowers costs, giving us a more affordable club with state-of-the-art technology. At one time all forged clubs were muscle-backs with little forgiveness, making them difficult for r ecreational golfers to play and enjoy. With CNC milling machines and lasers, designers can now carve portions from the forged heads giving them the same perimeter weighting once found only in cast clubs. C omputer simulators also play a role in measuring the drag forces of a design as it goes through the grass. This allows designers to adjust the sole of the iron to optimize how it reacts when it strikes the ground and then adjust their design to make the club more efficient for its target audience. We all want feel in our clubs. It usually tells us how w ell or poorly we struck a shot. Designers are now able to measure the sound waves emitted by a club as it strikes a ball at various points on the face. Engineers then design and implement dampening inserts and stiffening ribs to make the club sound and feel better. We 'v e come a long way in Spending a gift card on new clubs?
