I en-US Felt like a VIP.en-US Party guests enjoyed a professional DJ, en-US face painting, a green screen dress-up photo en-US booth, a face painting balloon artist and of en-US course, an off-the-chain birthday cake that en-US Ms. Geng referred to as a Cake Wars-level en-US creation in the shape of a coral reef and feaen-US -en-US turing a spaceship. en-US These were two of two of Chriss favorite en-US things, she added. The baker is using dry en-US ice to make it look like the spaceship is taken-US -en-US ing off. en-US Ms. Ramirez made special note of the en-US cake and expressed her gratitude to all those en-US who participated in making her sons party a en-US success.en-US The cake was out of this world, she en-US exclaimed. I want to thank all the volunen-US -en-US teers and messaging for all the wonderful en-US work they put together to make this party a en-US success.en-US Ms. Geng had also arranged a special en-US price at the venue for those who attended en-US Chris blowout and wanted to play games en-US before or afterward, which incorporated a en-US $5 donation to the Cherab Foundation. en-US If they wanted to bowl or play games or en-US eat food there was a charge for all three, she en-US explained. This year and last year we used en-US the party package, which included two en-US hours of bowling and all the equipment, two en-US slices of pizza and a drink, and a $3 arcade en-US swipe card. We sold them for $15.en-US The evening after the party, Chris said he en-US felt like he would have a little adjustment en-US coming down to Earth the next day at en-US school.en-US I feel I deserved the day off, he laughed. en-US Ms. Geng founded the Cherab Foundaen-US -en-US tion in 2000 as a nonprofit organization en-US dedicated to children with neurological or en-US genetic impairments that affect communien-US -en-US cation such as autism and apraxia.

The dealership is located at en-US 1215 N. 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 email en-US earl@estoyota.com.en-USI en-USsell new and used cars, but if I was not a en-US car dealer and I needed to buy a car, I en-US would buy a used one instead of a new. en-US This is because a used car is a better value. en-US You get more for your money due to en-US avoiding the initial rapid depreciation of a en-US new car.The price gap between used and en-US new cars has increased to highest level in en-US over a decade. I use the term used car in en-US this article because I despise mumbo jumbo en-US euphemisms like pre-owned. A used car is en-US a used car is a used car.en-US (1) Never buy a used car without a en-US CarFax or AutoCheck report. The dealer en-US should provide you with one at no charge en-US because any dealer worth his salt runs one en-US of these two reports on every used car he en-US trades in or buys to protect him. Simply en-US dont buy a used car from anybody that en-US does not give you this report. CarFax en-US reports now have, not only the information en-US about collision damage, floods damage, en-US previous odometer reading, and title issues, en-US (all obtained from insurance records) but en-US also the mechanical repair history en-US (obtained from dealer records). The CarFax en-US report also shows outstanding safety recalls, en-US but I also recommend that you double en-US check this with the NHTSA, National en-US Highway Traffic Safety Association atwww.en-US SaferCar.org. In my experience, CarFax and en-US AutoCheck miss safety recalls about 30% of en-US the time. Unfortunately, there is no law en-US requiring car dealers to even disclose an en-US unfixed safety recall and most dealers are en-US willingly selling their customers cars with en-US dangerous safety recall like Takata airbags.en-US (2) Have your car inspected by an en-US independent mechanic. Insist on having the en-US used car you are thinking about buying en-US inspected by your mechanic, not affiliated en-US with the dealer. This should cost you no en-US more than $150 and will be money well en-US spent. The mechanic should look, not only en-US for mechanical issues, but body and flood en-US damage. If the mechanic finds some minor en-US things that need fixing, insist that the dealer en-US take care of these and include it in the price en-US he already quoted you. If the dealer wont en-US allow this, dont buy from him.en-US (3) Consultwww.ConsumerReports.en-US org,www.TrueCar.com,www.CostcoAuto.en-US com,www.KBB.com, andwww.Edmunds.en-US com. These sources have complete informaen-US -en-US tion on the safety, reliability, maintenance en-US cost, and even what a fair price is to pay for en-US any used car. Consumer Reports lists the en-US Best and Worst Used Cars. This is great en-US guide and dont ever buy a used car thats on en-US the worst list.en-US (4) A Certified Used Car en-US is only as good as the dealer en-US who sold it to you. Most en-US manufacturers dont even en-US require that the dealer fix en-US open safety recalls to call the en-US car Certified. All manufacen-US -en-US turers sponsor certified en-US used cars of their make. The en-US main reason for this is that en-US they like to sell the dealer en-US warranties that the dealer en-US then marks up and sells to en-US you. A secondary reason the en-US manufacturers do this is to en-US enhance the resale value of en-US their make car. This helps en-US them sell more new cars because of the en-US higher trade in value and the higher en-US residual values on cars they lease enhance en-US their profits. You can buy a warranty for a en-US used car even if its not certified, but in a en-US certified used car its usually included in the en-US price (which makes the price higher). One en-US good thing about manufacturers certified en-US programs is that sometimes the manufacen-US -en-US turer will offer you lower financing rates. en-US Certified used cars require that the dealer en-US inspect all critical parts of the car and fill en-US out a checklist that is anywhere from 75 to en-US 150 items. Thats all well and good but how en-US carefully is this inspection being done and en-US by whom? You should ask to see a copy of en-US the check list and ask about the qualificaen-US -en-US tion of the mechanic who performed and en-US signed the inspection. All too often, the en-US dealer assigns the lowest priced mechanic en-US he has to perform these checks. Its en-US questionable whether he even performs all en-US of them. A red flag is if you notice a straight en-US line drawn through all the check boxes en-US instead of them being checked off individuen-US -en-US ally.en-US (5) Money Back Guarantee. A lot of en-US dealers advertise that if you change your en-US mind about the car you bought you can en-US bring it back and exchange it for another. en-US This is a worthless guarantee. You can be en-US sure that they will pick the car and the price en-US of the car they will exchange it for and will en-US end up making an additional profit. en-US CarMax has a reasonable guarantee which en-US refunds all your money within five days en-US with restriction that the car is returned in en-US the same condition that it was sold. CarMax en-US is a good place to buy a used car. My biggest en-US problem with CarMax is that readily sell en-US used cars with dangerous safety recalls, like ON CARS en-USEARL STEWART See en-US en-US EARLen-US page 9

en-US 4 en-USSt. Lucie Boulevard interchange, which was en-US originally constructed in 1978 and modified en-US in 2008. Florida Turnpike Enterprise offien-US-en-US cials held a town hall meeting here in Februen-US -en-US ary of 2017 where they faced a backlash of en-US complaints from residents on the then-proen-US-en-US posal to completely block Turnpike access en-US from the neighborhoods south of the en-US Bayshore and Port St. Lucie boulevards trafen-US-en-US fic signal in order to facilitate flow at the en-US Turnpike entrance. That idea was quickly en-US shelved and the citys main Turnpike interen-US -en-US change is currently undergoing provisional en-US improvements while Mr. Ribaric and his en-US staff toss around ideas for further changes. en-US The Port St. Lucie Boulevard interen-US -en-US change is currently under construction with en-US an interim improvement plan, which is proen-US -en-US jected to satisfy traffic needs until 2030, he en-US explained. Over 15 ultimate concepts were en-US developed as part of the previous feasibility en-US study and this PD&E effort. The interen-US -en-US change concepts that we have on the screen en-US separates the north and southbound moveen-US -en-US ments versus the single point location today en-US to improve traffic flow. The concept will en-US maintain access to Bayshore Boulevard en-US from south of Port St. Lucie Boulevard. en-US Mr. Ribaric provided other potential en-US options for the interchange in question, en-US with most involving Turnpike access via en-US Bayshore Boulevard.en-US The project manager presented other en-US slight variations at the aforementioned en-US intersection, but said the most direct posien-US-en-US tive effect would be to remove traffic from en-US the congested area northward to either the en-US Crosstown Parkway or the St. Lucie West/en-US Prima Vista Boulevard area, or a combinaen-US-en-US tion of both.en-US The Port St. Lucie Boulevard interen-US -en-US change will benefit from an interchange en-US immediately to the north, he said. This en-US would help reduce the heavy traffic to and en-US from the south at Port St. Lucie Boulevard en-US interchange. en-US Creating a potential Crosstown Parkway/en-US Turnpike interchange would be somewhat en-US complicated logistically due to a Florida Gas en-US Transmission line that shares the right of en-US way with the Florida Turnpike Authority, as en-US well as the Parkways proximity to the Port en-US St. Lucie/Fort Pierce Service Plaza. The two en-US entities have an agreement that sets specific en-US requirements for any interactions between en-US the roadway and the gas lines. en-US Mr. Ribaric continued, The project team en-US developed eight concepts for Crosstown en-US Parkway, and the team also developed a split en-US interchange concept with Crosstown Parken-US-en-US way and St. Lucie West/Prima Vista Bouleen-US -en-US vard.en-US The project manager his team developed en-US the latter idea due the issue of the gas lines, en-US which significantly limit options for onand en-US off-ramp locations and require the need to en-US utilize a residential portion of Cameo Drive en-US to the west for Turnpike ingress and egress. en-US In order to avoid future problems with a en-US full Crosstown Parkway interchange, the en-US Florida Turnpike Enterprise also developed en-US the split intersection idea involving both the en-US Parkway and St. Lucie West/Prima Vista en-US Boulevard, which Mr. Ribaric admitted still en-US held some, albeit fewer, challenges.en-US The movements to and from the north en-US would be located about a mile north at the en-US St. Lucie West/Prima Vista Boulevard overen-US -en-US pass, he added. The challenges from the en-US full interchange are reduced: The three FTG en-US lines could be avoided, the service plaza en-US operations and safety concerns would be en-US minimized, the proposed improvements en-US would be further away from the residential en-US area and the traffic could be mitigated en-US through the Cameo Boulevard and Crossen-US -en-US town intersection. This one is very similar en-US to the previous ones, with ramps going to en-US and from the Turnpike under the Crossen-US -en-US town Parkway and then connecting into en-US Cameo Boulevard.en-US No members of the public spoke during en-US the meeting, but Mayor Gregory Oravec en-US expressed dissatisfaction Oct. 2 on some of en-US the proposals presented by Mr. Ribaric, sayen-US -en-US ing it was crucial that FTE to hear from our en-UScitizens.en-US While I cant come to any final concluen-US -en-US sions before the public input is complete, I en-US can share that I am very concerned over en-US what FTE has shown us so far, he said. en-US From a big picture perspective, I have en-US always been interested in seeing Crosstown en-US Parkway connect I-95, U.S. 1 and the Turnen-US-en-US pike. Unfortunately, the configurations proen-US -en-US posed by the FTE have dampened my en-US enthusiasm for the connection to the Turnen-US -en-US pike. All of the configurations seem to cut en-US through our Cameo Park site, and FTEs en-US favored alternative would put only a southen-US -en-US bound interchange at Crosstown with the en-US northbound interchange going to the en-US already overly congested St. Lucie West en-US Boulevard. After the presentation, I was left en-US thinking there has to be a better way, and I en-US hope public participation in the PD&E proen-US-en-US cess will help reveal it.en-US Mr. Ribaric also touched on other Turnen-US-en-US pike improvements during the meeting, en-US including potential Martin County interen-US -en-US changes with Bridge Road near Hobe Sound en-US or State Road 76 (Kanner Highway) and a en-US potential St. Lucie County interchange at en-US Midway Road. He said several planning en-US studies had already been completed for that en-US proposed intersection. Improvements are en-US also proposed for the State 70 (Okeechobee en-US Boulevard) interchange in Fort Pierce.en-US St. Lucie Transportation Planning Orgaen-US-en-US nization Executive Director Peter Buchwald en-US addressed the Commission after Mr. Ribaren-US -en-US ics presentation, saying the TPO would en-US hear the same presentation on Oct. 3.en-US For more information on the FTE proen-US-en-US posals, visit the website at en-US www.Treasureen-US -en-US CoastTurnpike.comen-US.

I especially appreciated en-US the interviews with the local candidates for en-US office which gave me a great deal of inforen-US -en-US mation about each and which helped me en-US make my voting decisions.en-US I am also very impressed with the level of en-US interaction you get from your readers. The en-US Rants and Raves pages lately have been en-US chock full of informed, balanced and ratioen-US -en-US nal opinions which have been delivered en-US with civility and concern for our national en-US condition. I can only say that if most of en-US your readers are this well informed and conen-US -en-US cerned, and all of them come out to vote in en-US the November 6th elections, our country, en-US state, counties, and municipalities will be in en-US good hands.en-US I find myself saying "wow" every time I en-US read a new article or a new Rant/Rate. Keep en-US up the good work. You have touched a cord en-US with people who crave real, factual informaen-US-en-US tion about our society, and they trust you to en-US consistently provide what they need to make en-US important decisions.en-USFDR was greatest president everen-USThe greatest president in my 85 years was en-US a president named Franklin Delano Roosen-US -en-US evelt.en-US FDR inherited the greatest depression in en-US our history from republicans Herbert en-US Hoover, Calvin Coolidge and Warren G. en-US Harding.en-US In 1935, FDR gave us Social Security, then en-US the GI Bill without any votes from the en-US republicans.en-US FDR led us to victory in World War II and en-US got us out of the Great Depression.en-US Thank you, FDR, for the greatest governen-US -en-US ment program ever, Social Security.en-US How about the other great government en-US program, Medicare?en-US The only thing FDR gave Russia was food en-US and arms to help us defeat Adolf Hitler.en-US Wake up America, look at the disaster in en-US the White House now, a Republican.en-USAddresses should en-US be easy to seeen-USOverall, it is sad how many communities en-US just wall themselves up, keeping everyone en-US out.en-US I also find them dangerous since there is en-US only one way in and one way out of their en-US community. If an emergency were to occur, en-US this coule prove hazardous. I don't underen-US -en-US stand why counties don't enforce a second en-US exit rule, especially for large communities.en-US Speaking of danger, I work in the delivery en-US industry and have found there is no contien-US -en-US nuity of numbering complexes. One comen-US-en-US plex can have numbers on the building, othen-US-en-US ers letters.en-US At night, it often is difficult to see the en-US addresses.en-US I am surprised that the fire chief hasn't en-US enforced better signs.en-US I know it is frustrating for me, I can't en-US imagine how difficult it can be for emergenen-US -en-US cy personnel.en-US An idea I have is to number the driveway en-US before each house, and with complexes, en-US have solar lighting on signage (also clearing en-US away plants so one can see the signs). I really en-US do not understand why there isn't more en-US concern over the lack of numbering builden-US -en-US ings or houses.en-US I cannot tell you how many homes I deliven-US-en-US er to that do not even have their house numen-US -en-US ber.en-US There should be fines for people who do en-US not number their homes properly. Numbers en-US on the drive would be still there in case of a en-US major catastrophe. Am I the only one conen-US -en-US cerned?en-USUse bats and fish against pestsen-USThe rain has been good for mosquitoes. en-US But our first line of defense should not be en-US poisoning the environment.en-US Make sure there is no standing water in en-US the neighborhoods. Ponds can be stocked en-US with fish (e.g., Gambusia) that eat mosquito en-US eggs and larvae. en-US Put up a bat house. One bat can eat more en-US than 1,000 mosquitoes in one night. Poison en-US should be the last and little used option.en-USEnsure a seniors well-beingen-USHeat exhaustion can sneak up, causing en-US increased body temperature, rapid pulse, en-US headache and fatigue.

en-US 7 REVERSE MORTGAGE WILMER FLORESReal Estate Financial ProfessionalHablanos EspanolTAX FREE MONEY & NO MORTGAGE PAYMENTSImprove Your Lifestyle And Enjoy RetirementCall for more information772-207-4599 LENDER FORT PIERCE -The St. Lucie County en-USCommission unanimously approved an 8.9 en-US percent aggregate millage rate and a $546.3 en-US million budget Sept. 20 for the 2018-19 Fiscal en-US Year. en-US County Administrator Howard Tipton said en-US the budget for the upcoming year was nearly en-US $11 million less than the current year adopten-US -en-US ed budget of $557,215,720 while Office of en-US Management & Budget Director Jennifer Hill en-US admitted the 2018-19 Fiscal Year Budget had en-US gone up slightly since the Commission en-US reviewed the tentative proposed budget Sept. en-US 6. en-US The budget that is being proposed tonight en-US reflects an increase of $6 million over the tenen-US-en-US tative budget, bringing the total budget to en-US $546.3 million, she said. These changes are en-US due to increases in grant funds, capital projen-US -en-US ects being carried forward and transitioning en-US the administrative functions for the medical en-US examiner from the college to St. Lucie Counen-US -en-US ty. St Lucie County is the primary agency in en-US the funding for the medical examiners office, en-US and in order to make the transition, a budget en-US for the funding for the other three counties en-US must be set up on our books.en-US The approved 2018-19 budget also reflects en-US the reallocation from reserves of $450,000 for en-US the Sheriffs Office and $248,637 for a project en-US at the Emergency Operations Center. The en-US Commission had debated at length on the en-US former during the first reading of the tentaen-US -en-US tive budget Sept. 6, with some commissioners en-US not wanting to release the additional funds en-US until they could see the potential effect of two en-US ballot initiatives after the November elecen-US -en-US tions. The money in question is designated en-US for new school resource officers mandated en-US but insufficiently funded by the state, and en-US Chairwoman Frannie Hutchinson didnt en-US think a couple of months would make any en-US difference in the issue since the money had en-US already been promised to Sheriff Ken Masen-US -en-US cara.en-US If Im making a commitment to say youre en-US going to get that money, I dont see us going en-US back and saying, give it back, no matter what en-US the outcome is, she said during the tentative en-US budget hearing. No matter what, we will en-US have to make changes, and I dont see where en-US holding on to it is going to matter. en-US Both Commissioners Chris Dzadovsky en-US and Anthony Bonna disagreed, however, with en-US the latter wanting to hold out until the end of en-US the year. en-US The point was that we were going to conen-US -en-US sider in December whether or not those en-US resources were available to commit at that en-US time, he said Sept. 6.en-US Although none of the commissioners comen-US -en-US mented on the reinsertion of the funds during en-US the final budget hearing, Ms. Hill reminded en-US them of the severity of potential financial en-US challenges coming down the pike if the en-US majority of voters approve a third $25,000 en-US homestead exemption and reject a half-cents en-US sales tax initiative that officials hope could en-US pay for the countys $25 million infrastrucen-US-en-US ture backlog predicted over the next 10 years. en-US Although the approved 8.8934 millage rate en-US for the 2018-19 Fiscal Year reflects a 0.18 en-US decrease from the current the 2017-18 Fiscal en-US Year, county homeowners will still see higher en-US property tax bills this fall due to their rising en-US property values. en-US This slide represents the impact on a en-US homesteaded property located within one of en-US the cities, Ms. Hill told the Commission as en-US she went through her presentation. We focus en-US on a $200,000 property as that is the median en-US value of a home in St. Lucie County. Due to en-US the increase in values, this propertys tax en-US increased by $34.56 or 2.8 percent. On a en-US non-homesteaded property located within en-US one of the cities, this propertys tax would en-US increase by $141.53 or 8.6 percent due to the en-US increase in value. en-US While the new budget reflects funding for en-US 5.38 new full-time employees for a total of en-US .83 full time equivalent positions, Ms. en-US Hills reminded commissioners how much en-US that number has fallen since the height of the en-US construction boom in the early 2000s.en-US The county is operating with 196 less en-US positions than in 2007, and we are currently en-US operating with fewer positions than we had en-US in 2003, she explained. en-US Mr. Tipton, however, remains optimistic in en-US spite of the unknown election results looming en-US on the horizon this November. en-US Weve talked about a lot of challenges and en-US they will continue on each year, he said. But en-US I will tell you despite these difficult pressures, en-US the overall state of the county is good and geten-US -en-US ting stronger.en-US Only one member of the public spoke en-US during the hearing, North Hutchinson Island en-US resident Allison Barajas, who complained en-US about the extension of a $150,000 contract en-US with Brevard County resident Neil Levine to en-US continue his help with forming the St. Lucie en-US Cultural Alliance. Although only a tiny fracen-US -en-US tion of the countys approved $546.3 million en-US budget, Ms. Barajas alleged county officials en-US were wasting taxpayer money on an extenen-US -en-US sion thats been slipped in for Mr. Levines en-US contract.en-US Ms. Barajas claimed that Chairman en-US Hutchinson had requested an audit of his en-US work during the Sept. 11 Board meeting and en-US expressed frustration that commissioners had en-USdecided to vote on the extension anyway.en-US The people in this community you are en-US brushing aside to take and advocate for this en-US person from Brevard who has created a culen-US -en-US tural divide rather than an alliance, she said. en-US If this demonstrates how things happen, Im en-US worried.en-US Mr. Tipton told the Commission in en-US response that an auditor was currently en-US reviewing the scope of services in Mr. Levines en-US contract and said remedial action could be en-US taken if necessary.en-US Assistant County Administrator Mark Saten-US -en-US terlee provided The Hometown News a copy en-US of a memo sent to the Commission Sept. 11 en-US that outlined the disagreement between Mr. en-US Levine and some members of the local arts en-US community, including Ms. Barajas. In that en-US memo, he attributed part of Mr. Levines en-US problem to a lack of patience with fellow arten-US -en-US ists and the need to adopt the kindlier, genen-US-en-US tler St. Lucie County Way.en-US The great majority of arts and culture en-US stakeholders support the work being done by en-US Dr. Levine, Mr. Satterlee said Oct.1. The en-US SLCA will be a completely independent en-US board as it gets up and running. Weve had a en-US few vocal critics who wish to take the SLCA en-US in a different direction and have made a en-US number of claims and complaints, most of en-US which do not appear to have merit.en-USCounty approves millage and $546M budgeten-USBy Donald Rodrigueen-USFor Hometown News

M en-USany called it the Dream Team. en-US After the dust settled on this past en-US weekend's Ryder Cup matches in en-US Paris, the dream was more like a Halloween en-US nightmare.en-US The United States team, by most en-US accounts, was expected to roll the European en-US team. It was supposed to be the first en-US American win on foreign soil in over two en-US decades. However, there is a good reason en-US that sports are decided on the field, not on en-US paper.en-US On the American Team, you had the No. en-US 1 player in the world, three of the top four, en-US 11 of the top 17, and the best average world en-US ranking of any team in Ryder Cup history. If en-US major victories are the defining case in who en-US is a better player, the American team en-US represented six of the last seven major en-US winners. The European team didn't have six en-US majors combined on the team.en-US Instead of bludgeoning the European en-US team into submission as so many predicted, en-US the boys from this side of the pond got en-US pounded themselves, losing 17.5 to 10.5, en-US and, honestly, it wasn't really that close. The en-US European team played about as expected, en-US making crucial putts and not many en-US mistakes. The American team pretty much en-US rolled over and took a beating.en-US The United States got off to a good start en-US winning three of the first four matches. It en-US was the one that it lost that should have en-US been a premonition of things to come. en-US Against the team of Tiger Woods and en-US Patrick Reed, Tommy Fleetwood and en-US Francesco Molinari made nine birdies over en-US 17 holes. Woods and Reed made only four en-US birdies of their own and lost five of the last en-US seven holes without winning one for en-US themselves. Over the 60 holes played that en-US afternoon, the Americans made just eight en-US birdies and played those holes in 11-over en-US par. The Europeans played those same holes en-US in 4-under par. The momentum would en-US continue for the European team until the en-US champagne spilled on Sunday afternoon.en-US In the afternoon foursomes on Friday, the en-US Americans managed to win just 10 holes in en-US four matches as the European team won 27 en-US holes. The worst match being the one en-US between the team of Phil Michelson and en-US Bryson DeChambeau against Sergio Garcia en-US and Alex Noren. The U.S. mates were down en-US seven when they hit the turn. It was never en-US close.en-US You would hope that the U.S. team would en-US get a good night's rest and sleep it off. That en-US was not the case. Saturday morning the en-US European team extended its lead easily en-US winning three of the four matches. The lone en-US bright spot for the American team being the en-US pairing of Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. en-US The rookie, Thomas, would prove to be the en-US best player on the American side over the en-US course of the event.en-US After the Saturday afternoon matches, en-US the European team en-US found themselves with en-US a substantial lead, one en-US that has been overcome en-US only twice in the en-US history of the Ryder en-US Cup. The most telling en-US loss for the Americans en-US was DeChambeau and en-US Woods losing to en-US Molinari and Fleeten-US -en-US wood. The two hottest en-US players on the planet en-US going into the event en-US managed to win just en-US two holes and lost en-US seven. The match was en-US over on the 14th green.en-US Going into Sunday's singles matches, the en-US United States still had a chance. To win the en-US U.S. needed to play well, and be a bit lucky. en-US The luck would have been the Euros not en-US making crucial putts or the Americans en-US getting hot early and putting pressure on en-US their foes. Four Americans got beat for a en-US full point by Euros who didn't shoot better en-US than 2-under. Sergio Garcia and Molinari en-US each made just two birdies, but won their en-US matches without even having to play the en-US 18th hole. These were matches the United en-US States needed to win and it was there for the en-US taking had they played better. Of course, in en-US match play, you only need to beat the guy in en-US front of you and that is exactly what the en-US Euros did.en-US It was a sad end for two of the game's en-US great players who may have just played in en-US their final Ryder Cup. Michelson proved to en-US be a bad captain's pick. Phil played terrible en-US on Friday afternoon with Bubba Watson. en-US He played so poorly that he didn't pick up en-US another club for a match until Sunday. Tiger en-US Woods may be on a comeback and he is en-US certainly always a threat to win, but he was en-US winless at this Ryder Cup, losing all three of en-US his matches. He will be two years older and en-US who knows what his physical shape will be en-US when the next Ryder Cup comes around.en-US It was supposed to be a big party for the en-US Dream Team. Some dreams die hard. This en-US one went without so much as a whimper.en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.
