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.

en-US 8 en-USDont put all your eggs in one basketen-USOen-USnce upon a time there was this guy en-US who was so enamored with cloud en-US computing that he stuck all of his en-US digital eggs in one basket and in the blink of en-US an eye lost it all. The end. en-US Alright, OK, Im sure there are enough of en-US you reading this wondering what in the en-US world Im going on about this week so I en-US suppose I ought to take a few words to en-US explain. You see I recently read an article en-US online (an open letter to Google actually) en-US written by a very distraught fellow who en-US wanted Google to know just how badly they en-US messed up when they locked him out of all en-US of his data. en-US The poor guy goes on to explain that he en-US spent months switching all of his email over en-US to Gmail, all of his photos over to Googles en-US photo service (Picasa at the time), all of his en-US docs to Google Docs etc. etc. etcetera. After en-US painstakingly moving all of his data to en-US Googles servers (wherever the hell they are) en-US he woke up one day to find out his account en-US had been closed due to a terms of service en-US violation which he swears up and down he en-US didnt commit. en-US The bottom line is he spent a consideren-US -en-US able amount of time moving his entire en-US digital inventory up to Googles cloud, en-US didnt make any provisions to back any of it en-US up and then (just as Murphys law en-US demands) found himself completely locked en-US out. en-US Now, this column isnt about whether en-US Google had a right to lock him out of his en-US account or not nor is it some type of cry out en-US to the powers that be to change the way our en-US data is safeguarded when we hand it over to en-US the cloud. Its more of a cautionary tale to en-US remind us of that which we already know en-US back up everything! Even when entrusten-US -en-US ing your data to the cloud, back it to a local en-US drive as well! To not do so is just asking for en-US it. en-US Lets look at this a little closer shall we? en-US First the decision to use a cloud service en-US may be a decision that many are not even en-US aware that they are making. Let me try to en-US clarify a couple things, take email for en-US example. If you are accessing your email en-US through your web browser by going to en-US www.gmail.comen-US, en-US www.yahoo.comen-US en-US www.aol.en-US comen-US or any of the other email services that en-US offer web based mail service then guess en-US what? Your email is being stored and en-US managed in the cloud and if you should en-US find yourself in violation of the terms of en-US service you too could find yourself locked en-US out. (Just how well did you read those en-US terms when you signed up? en-US You know, the terms you have to en-US click the Accept button for in en-US order to set up your account?) en-US Most email services allow the en-US downloading of email to a local en-US email client which is present on en-US each and every machine out en-US there Windows, Mac or Linux. en-US You can set up your computers en-US email program (Windows Live en-US Mail, Outlook, Outlook Express en-US for those machines still running en-US Windows XP, Mail on Macs) en-US by configuring the POP or en-US IMAP settings. Look it up in en-US your email services help settings en-US and if your email service doesnt provide for en-US it then you may want to consider an en-US alternative. en-US Next lets look at the folly of uploading all en-US of your digital pictures to a service like en-US Googles Albums and then deleting the local en-US copies after you upload all of your pictures. en-US Why on earth would anyone do that? Well en-US Sean, we dont want all these duplicates en-US now do we? Well, actually, you do. en-US Sure uploading all of your photos to a en-US web based service is great but for Gods en-US sakes, dont get rid of the originals! Did you en-US know that you can get 8 gigabyte thumb en-US drives from just about any drugstore en-US nowadays very cheaply? Do you know how en-US many duplicate photos you can store on 8 en-US gigs? Then if anything happens to your en-US web albums you luckily will have all of en-US those pesky duplicates to fall back on.en-US The list goes on Google Docs Sure en-US save all of your Docs to cloud storage but en-US how about synchronizing them with a local en-US folder on your own machine, you know, just en-US in case Google goes belly up or locks you en-US out, it will be nice to have a backup. en-US As the concept of cloud computing en-US becomes all encompassing its important to en-US remember that its your data. Dont just en-US assume that they will protect it for you.en-US Sean McCarthy fixes computers.

COMPUTE THIS en-USSEAN MCCARTHY en-USWhat many people dont realize is that a en-US disability can occur from birth to death, Ms. en-US Marino added, and some are born with en-US developmental disabilities while others are en-US injured when they experience things like en-US strokes, macular degeneration or accidents en-US that render them unable to do their previen-US -en-US ous 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 overen-US -en-US come 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 press en-US release. While many people with disabilities en-US live in isolation, employment increases en-US self-esteem and leaves them with a proen-US -en-US found sense of gratitude to these companies en-US and long-term commitment to 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 Americans en-US With Disabilities Act states that they have to en-US offer opportunities equally, but we all know en-US that is not always the case.en-US Ms. Marino cited a number of clients she en-US has been able to help along the way, includen-US -en-US ing Austin Beers. Hes a 21-year-old young en-US man with dwarfism, high-frequency deafen-US -en-US ness as well as developmental disabilities. en-US He is not able to read, write or communicate en-US verbally. Hes survived both brain and open-en-US heart surgeries during his short life, but had en-US a big dream: to be a chef. But due to his en-US small stature, issues with dexterity and en-US communication problems, his options were en-US limited at best.en-US Ms. Marino worked with Mr. Beers and en-US helped him develop skills for an eight-week en-US training course that was paid by EmployU en-US at Longhorn Steakhouse in Jensen Beach. en-US He worked with Job Coach Michelle Hanen-US-en-US sen to develop learning skills that could be en-US applied in future employment, and Longen-US -en-US horn has been a long-time partner, working en-US with thousands of students 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 a en-US high-functioning client named Willie, who en-US 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 be en-US tough, Im not going to lie, Ms. Marino en-US said. And Mr. Greene agreed to meet with en-US Austin and offered him a job on the spot. en-US Mr. Greene also agreed to let me personally en-US provide job coaching for Austin since I have en-US a background in culinary training.en-US In the meantime, Mr. Greene and his en-US entire staff have welcomed Mr. Beers with en-US open arms. He works three days a week, en-US peeling potatoes, wrapping baked potatoes en-US and cleaning scallops, and is a tireless worken-US -en-US er. The staff at EmployU is developing visuen-US -en-US al-aids to help the staff at Kyle Gs with comen-US -en-US munication, since speaking is difficult and en-US vocabulary is limited for him. en-USWell make a picture-book of things en-US Austin will need food, utensils, etc. en-US when a job coach is not available, Ms. en-US Marino added. People with disabilities en-US have ambitions and dreams, too, and everyen-US-en-US body with a disability has the ability to do en-US something and it might be something very en-US small, but through working with Austin I en-US discovered there was a lot he could do and en-US ways that we could teach him and fight for en-US his opportunity there.en-US Mr. Beerss mother, Toni, said he is one en-US excited boy, because he loves to work, and en-US he appreciates the chance to shine in the en-US kitchen.en-US Its really benefited him, because he had en-US attended a culinary class in high school and en-US then went to Orlando for a program and en-US was able to get his license to work in the en-US kitchen for disabled children and was able en-US to follow his dreams, Ms. Beers said. Its a en-US chance he would not have gotten were it not en-US for this program.en-US For more information about EmployU en-US and its programs, please visit en-US www.employu.en-US orgen-US or call 407-598-0202.en-USJobsen-USFrom page 1

en-US 9 Were Here Day and NightFULL CIRCLE SENIOR CARE FORT PIERCE Florida Department of en-USHealth in St. Lucie County officials are curen-US -en-US rently investigating a series of cases of glioen-US-en-US blastoma in Fort Pierce. But while residents en-US in the area are concerned there are environen-US-en-US mental factors that have led to 13 cases over en-US the last five years, the county is not calling it en-US a cancer cluster at this time.en-US According to a press release from the en-US FDOH-SLC, As discussed this is an intrien-US -en-US cate matter, (and) personal and we really en-US want to get this right. Although we have no en-US evidence of the source of any disease cluster, en-US we also understand the strong concerns in en-US the community.en-US According to the American Brain Tumor en-US Association, glioblastomas are defined as: en-US tumors that arise from astrocytes the en-US star-shaped cells that make up the glue-like, en-US or supportive tissue of the brain. These en-US tumors are usually highly malignant (canen-US -en-US cerous) because the cells reproduce quickly, en-US and they are supported by a large network of en-US blood vessels.en-US Those who have been diagnosed live en-US within five to seven miles of each other, en-US according to DOH records. Across the en-US country, there are roughly 13,000 people en-USdiagnosed with glioblastoma each year, or en-US about one out of every 30,000 people. Fort en-US Pierce is home to about 45,000 residents, en-US which was the factor that originally raised en-US the concerns due to their above-average en-US number and the relative rarity of the disease. en-US Also, the only environmental factor is expoen-US -en-US sure to ionizing radiation such as x-rays and en-US gamma rays.en-US The county also has directed people to en-US the departments individual websites in the en-US interests of informing the public. Please en-US note the information on our website, as we en-US will share more as it becomes available, en-US which subsequently sends people to en-US https://en-US www.cdc.gov/nceh/clusters/en-US and en-UShttp://en-US wwwen-US .floridahealth.gov/diseases-and-condien-US -en-US tions/cancer/cancer-registry/index.htmlen-US en-US Another website is mentioned at en-US http://en-US stlucie.floridahealth.gov/proen-US-en-US gramsen-US -and-services/glioblastoma.htmlen-US for en-US people to receive data about glioblastomas.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.

The Site Plan Review Committee en-US as well reviewed this request at their meeten-US-en-US ing on Feb. 26 and recommended approval. en-US The President of the Economic Developen-US -en-US ment Council of St. Lucie County, Pete en-US Tesch, provided details from an economic en-US analysis of the proposal, originally known as en-US Project Bourbon during its initial planning en-US stages. en-US We started working this project in Januen-US -en-US ary of last year, he said. City Electric Supen-US -en-US ply is a global company and one of the top en-US electric component manufacturers and en-US wholesalers with approximately $18 billion en-US in revenues. One of their electrical compoen-US -en-US nent divisions is TAMCO, and that is the en-US company that were working with.en-US The EDC sought the analytical expertise en-US of IMPLAN, one of the countrys main ecoen-US -en-US nomic analysis firms, to estimate the ecoen-US -en-US nomic impact of City Electrics proposed en-US investment into the Port St. Lucie jobs corrien-US-en-US dor.en-US Because of the multiplier effect, this will en-US create 522 direct, indirect and induced jobs en-US in the area, he explained. Direct is the job en-US creation and the capital investment by the en-US company; indirect is the business-to-busien-US-en-US ness element where goods and services are en-US being purchased and the payrolls being en-US expended within the community; and en-US induced is that ripple effect that occurs from en-US the expenditures and disposable income en-US being utilized within the community. en-US Winning Port St. Lucie the expansion, en-US however, required a number of financial en-US incentives cobbled together between state en-US and local coffers.en-US Thanks to us working together with the en-US State of Florida, the city and EDC, we were en-US able to win $3.1 million with a job growth en-US grant fund from the Department of Ecoen-US-en-US nomic Opportunity, Mr. Tesch added. By en-US utilizing both the State of Floridas Qualified en-US Targeted Industry Tax Refund and the Florien-US -en-US da Job Growth Investment Grant, the City en-US of Port St. Lucie provided ad valoram tax en-US exemption, impact fee mitigation, the ecoen-US-en-US nomic development fund for infrastructure en-US improvements, expedited site plan review en-US and fast track permitting. St. Lucie County en-US also participated with the ad valoram tax en-US exemption, their job growth investment en-US grant and the local financial match for the en-US QTI. So its important to look at this packen-US -en-US age in terms of tax investments, as well as en-US impact fees, a total of $9.2 million.en-US Mayor Gregory Oravec believes the citys en-US decision to construct a $4 million loop road en-US through the job corridor helped cement the en-US deal and open up the area to other such proen-US -en-US posals in the future. Road construction is en-US slated to begin this June and last until Sepen-US-en-US tember 2019.en-US I think this return included the investen-US-en-US ment in the Loop Road and thats develen-US-en-US oper funded, thats not taxpayer dollars, he en-US said. That funds set up specifically by proen-US -en-US ceeds provided by developers for economic en-US development in the City of Port St. Lucie. Its en-US important to point out that for the $4 milen-US -en-US lion investment -$3 million from the state, en-US $1 million from the citys economic develen-US-en-US opment fund -thats actually leveraging en-US more than just City Electric. There are five en-US more parcels being created as a result of that en-US loop road, and that loop road will actually en-US leverage a half a billion in economic impact.en-US City Manager Russ Blackburn also asked en-US Council members to consider a request en-US from the applicant to name the loop road en-US Mackie Drive after City Electric Founder en-US Thomas Hartland-Mackie. The planned en-US unit development site plan currently shows en-US the un-constructed road named after late en-US Vero Beach resident Pete Hegener, who was en-US instrumental in the development and build-en-US out of St. Lucie West.en-US One of our PUD maps showed that its en-US Hegener Drive but it is not constructed at en-US this point, Mr. Blackburn said. The en-US approval is at this point Hegener, and so en-US were continuing to talk with the county and en-US our staff about how we can perhaps have a en-US way to recognize Mr. Mackie, as well as to en-US recognize Pete Hegeners tremendous conen-US -en-US tributions to our community. So if we find a en-US way to do both, we would come back to the en-US City Council with some kind of an ordien-US-en-US nance amendment on naming the roadway.en-US Mayor Oravec and other members of the en-US Council agreed.en-US This Council is collectively a big fan of en-US win-win, so when you find the win-win, en-US were confident that youll come back before en-US us with the necessary ordinance or whatever en-USelse may be required to properly recognize en-US the champions of Port St. Lucie, he said.en-USElectricen-USFrom page 1 en-GBLakewood Park Branch Library, 7605 Santa en-GB Barbara Drive, Fort Pierce.

Federal Highway in Lake Park. en-US Contact him at en-USwww.earlstewarttoyota.com, en-US call 561-358-1474, fax 561-658-0746 or en-US emailen-US earl@estoyota.com.en-USTen-UShere are fewer things more sensitive en-US or embarrassing than having to share en-US your personal credit problems with a en-US stranger. Having credit problems can also en-US put many buyers in a weakened and en-US defensive position when buying a car. Many en-US people with bad, or too little credit feel like en-US the car dealer is somehow doing them a en-US favor by selling them a car and getting en-US them financed. Some car dealers will lead en-US you to believe that your credit is worse than en-US it is to put you on the defensive. If they can en-US make you believe that theyre doing you a en-US favor by getting you financed, youre less en-US likely to complain about the price of the car, en-US the interest rate, and even the type of car en-US you buy.en-US Make no mistake about it. A car dealer is en-US probably making more money selling a car en-US to a person with bad credit a car than one en-US with good credit. If you have a credit en-US problem, go about buying a car with the en-US same care and due diligence as if you had en-US the very best credit. Shop and compare en-US your financing, your interest rate, and your en-US trade-in allowance. Get at least three quotes en-US on each of these.en-US Lenders who specialize in lending to en-US those with bad credit are known as special en-US finance lenders. Many of these lenders en-US charge the dealer a large upfront fee, as en-US much as $2,500. Legally, the dealer is not en-US supposed to add this fee to the price of the en-US car you buy but, in the real world, the price en-US of the car is usually higher as the result of en-US this fee. Dealer also add high priced but en-US worthless warranties to the price of the cars en-US with the excuse that the lender requires it. en-US This is a lie: its illegal for lenders to require en-US a warranty to finance a car. In addition to en-US an upfront fee, the interest rates are very en-US high from special finance lenders. Because en-US they anticipate a much higher amount of en-US repossession losses, they must make more en-US on each transaction. Dont automatically en-US accept a dealers opinion that you must en-US finance through such a lender. There are en-US many conventional banks, credit unions en-US and auto manufacturer lenders these days en-US that loan to people with bad credit. Their en-US interest rates are lower and they dont en-US charge large upfront fees.en-US There is much fraud in special finance en-US lending. Credit applications are falsified to en-US show more time on the job, higher incomes, en-US etc. W-2 forms and check stubs are en-US counterfeited. Buyers orders show accessoen-US -en-US ries and equipment that do not really exist en-US on the car. Hold checks or promissory notes en-US are misrepresented as cash down payment. en-US Co-signers signatures are forged. Confederen-US -en-US ates pose as employers, answering cell en-US phones or pay phones to verify employen-US -en-US ment. These falsifications are performed by en-US finance managers, salesmen, brokers for en-US special finance lenders (who are paid on en-US commission) and the customers themen-US -en-US selves. If you sign a credit application, be en-US sure that you know all the information on en-US that application is accurate. Be sure that you en-US understand and agree to all parts of the en-US transaction including down payments, en-US accessories on the car, etc. Never be a party en-US to falsifying information to a lender to en-US obtain a loan. This is a federal crime.en-US Advertisements aimed at people with bad en-US credit usually exaggerate with claims like, en-US We finance everyone, Wanted, good en-US people with bad credit, No credit, no en-US problem, and, my favorite, No credit en-US application refused (it doesnt say your en-US loan wont be refused, just your applicaen-US -en-US tion). My advice is to ignore these kinds of en-US ads and these kinds of dealers. Their en-US strategy is to take advantage of people with en-US bad credit who they believe will buy any car, en-US pay any amount of interest, and any profit en-US to the dealers if the dealer can get them a en-US loan.en-US It is common practice in Florida to en-US encourage the car buyer to drive the car en-US home immediately upon signing all the en-US papers. In some states like New York this is en-US not permitted until all the car has been en-US registered with the state in the new owners en-US name. The reason for this immediate en-US delivery (commonly referred to as the spot en-US delivery) is to discourage and possibly en-US even prevent the buyer from changing his en-US mind. Taking possession of the car is a legal en-US consideration making the purchase more en-US binding. I recommend that you not rush the en-US purchase or the delivery. For one thing you en-US want to be sure that the car is exactly the en-US way you want itclean inside and out, all en-US the accessories properly installed, no dings, en-US dents or scratches, and that you have a comen-US -en-US plete understanding of how to operate all en-US the features of the vehicle.en-US More important than anything above, is en-US to be sure the car does not have an outen-US -en-US standing safety recall from the manufacturen-US -en-US er. Independent used car dealers, especially en-US those who specialize in folks with bad en-US credit, have become the home for dangeren-US en-USous used cars with unfixed safety recalls. en-US Many new car dealers, like the AutoNation en-US stores, wholesale all cars with unfixed en-US Takata airbag recalls. These cars are bought en-US at auction by used car dealers like Driveen-US -en-US Time,OffLeaseOnly.com, CarMax, and en-US thousands of others smaller used car en-US dealers. These cars are retailed to people en-US with bad credit who dont ask the right en-US questions because they are grateful to find en-US financing. ALWAYS CHECK THE VIN OF en-US THE USED CAR YOU BUY ATWWW.en-US SAFERCAR.GOV.en-US I mention the risk of the spot delivery en-US in this column on buying a car with bad en-US credit because it can be especially harmful en-US to someone whose credit is denied aer en-US the car has been delivered. You will most en-US likely be required to sign a Rescission en-US Agreement before you drive the car en-US home. is is a quasi-legal document en-US which requires you to return the car if en-US your credit is denied. You will probably en-US be told that your credit will be approved, en-US but sometimes the dealer is wrong. e en-US rescission agreement will have a charge for en-US time and mileage that you have put on the en-US car you are driving. Usually this is a very en-US high charge from 25 cents per mile plus $50 en-US per day and higher. It can take weeks for en-US a special nance lender to rule on a credit en-US application. If your credit is denied you en-US could owe the dealer thousands of dollars en-US which the down payment you made might en-US not even cover.en-US As frightening as all the above may sound, en-US the one single thing you can do to prevent en-US bad things from happening when you en-US purchase a car is to choose your car dealer en-US very carefully.

US Hwy 1, Port St. Lucie Did anyone else enjoy the Masters? en-USNen-USow that was a fun golf tournament en-US to watch! 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.

en-US 17 en-USOen-USne of the best ways to add some en-US tropical flair to your yard is through en-US the use of palm trees. There are en-US dozens of choices out there; some common en-US and some very exotic (and expensive). en-US Today I want to talk about a couple of the en-US more common varieties that you might en-US want to try in your landscape.en-US The Queen Palm is probably one of the en-US most common palm tree varieties that is en-US found in our area. These palms are native to en-US Brazil, Paraguay and northern Argentina. en-US This palm is very commonly used as a en-US landscape accent. Queen palms have been en-US assigned the name Cocos plumose. en-US The Queen palm is a very hardy plant en-US that is cold tolerant down to 20 degrees. en-US The tree is also relatively draught tolerant en-US and requires little in the way of watering en-US once the plant is established. The Queen en-US palm can grow upwards to 50feet.en-US The Queen palm boasts a smooth en-US straight trunk that is marked with evenly en-US spaced leaf scars. The top of the tree is en-US marked by a large canopy that consists of en-US feathery like fronds. The leaves are a dark en-US green and have a very graceful and tropical en-US appearance.en-US The Queen palm also has a spectacular en-US display of fruit and flower clusters that give en-US this tree a very unique appearance. In each en-US fruit is a seed with three spots.en-US Queen palms can be used in many en-US landscape environments including lining a en-US pathway or driveway, grouped together to en-US form a tropical hammock, used individually en-US to accent a garden area or for an accent on en-US your front lawn. The uses are endless and en-US the beauty is amazing.en-US There is one downside with these palms. en-US Over the years, there has been a fungus en-US disease that is affecting some of the trees. en-US Personally, none of mine have ever been en-US affected.en-US Another common palm that this found en-US just about everywhere is the Areca Palm. en-US The Areca has feather-like green fronds en-US that radiate from several trunks, which en-US make this a good choice for use as a border. en-US Areca palms are slow growing plants that en-US will grow wider before they get taller. en-US One common problem that you can en-US encounter with these plants is the browning en-US out of the plant tips. This is normal and will en-US happen in almost all cases. These palms en-US require bright indirect light and if you use en-US the plant indoors, keep it within 5to 8 feet en-US of a bright window. If you plant the palms en-US outdoors or use them as a border, plant en-US them on in a part of your yard that gets en-US some shade, either from the structure or en-US from larger trees that might be in the yard. en-US If the Areca receives too much direct en-US sunlight, it will cause browning of the en-US leaves.en-US The Areca palm requires a fair amount of en-US water but it will not do well in an area that en-US does not drain properly. It does not like to en-US sit in standing water. In addition, over time en-US you may notice a slight yellowing of the en-US leaves. en-US This is en-US normal en-US with these en-US palms and en-US using en-US simple en-US Epsom en-US salts en-US around en-US your en-US palms can en-US often offset the yellowing. Use about a en-US half-cup around each plant and water in. en-US Apply the tonic around your plants about en-US every month or so. This will help keep the lush green color intact. en-USJoe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape.
