Customen-US -en-US ers in the Sebastian store can scan items en-US as they put them in their basket, pay by en-US phone, and skip the checkout line.en-US Scan & Go was installed in the Sebasen-US -en-US tian store in early March. It has not yet en-US been announced if the Vero Beach store en-US will also use the system.en-US Scan & Go is created to give time en-US back to our customers, Sebastian Store en-US Manager Bill Bales told Hometown en-US News. Just how much time saved en-US depends on a variety of factors, includen-US -en-US ing the size of the basket and the traffic en-US in the store. We continue to test and en-US improve this technology based on feeden-US-en-US back from our associates and customen-US-en-US ers.en-US To use the system, customers downen-US-en-US load the Scan & Go app on a mobile en-US phone and open the app inside Walmart, en-US or use devices available in store. Scan en-US the barcode of each item and then place en-US the item into the shopping cart. en-US As you shop, you see the running total en-US of the items in your cart.

Because we are a en-US publicly-traded company, we only release sales figures en-US as part of our quarterly earnings, he said. Mr. Bales en-US also would not say whether there has been any differen-US -en-US ence in theft in the store since the system was installed, en-US saying simply we have several systems in place en-US throughout the store to deter shoplifting.en-US Walmart has not said whether stores using the sysen-US -en-US tem will see a reduction in employment.

en-US 3 en-USSEBASTIAN 20 Past 4 in Sebastian was en-US already a repeat winner of Hometown News en-US readers Best Vape Shop award when owner en-US Doug Newman decided to expand his offeren-US -en-US ings last summer.en-US I had so many people asking for CBD en-US and glass, and wraps, Mr. Newman told en-US Hometown News. I was happy as a vape en-US shop, but my customers want all these other en-US things.en-US CBD (Cannabidiol) is a major constituent en-US of cannabis and hemp plants. CBD from the en-US hemp plant is a non-psychoactive comen-US -en-US pound, so it does not get the user high.en-US While purchasing CBD oil derived from en-US cannabis requires a medical marijuana card, en-US CBD oil derived from hemp is legal because en-US hemp products contain very little or no en-US THC, the psychoactive component.en-US CBD is amazing, Mr. Newman said. en-US CBD from hemp doesnt get you high, but en-US you get the other benefits.en-US While readers should do their own en-US research concerning the benefits and effects en-US of CBD, many people insist that it helps en-US greatly with the management of pain, anxien-US-en-US ety, depression, and other conditions.en-US 20 Past 4 sells Blue Moon Hemp CBD, en-US considered among the highest grade, with a en-US high CBD mg content and an advanced proen-US -en-US duction process that aims to optimize purien-US -en-US ty.en-US While there is no certification or designaen-US -en-US tion for organically-grown hemp, Blue en-US Moon Hemp promises that the farming en-US methods used to produce its CBD are en-US eco-friendly, utilizing no insecticides or en-US herbicides, with all product additives being en-US plant-based, organic, and non-GMO when en-US available.en-US When it comes to vaping supplies and en-US smoking accessories, 20 Past 4 also keeps en-US the focus on high-quality.en-US I sell a lot of e-liquid, Mr. Newman said. en-US My thing is that I have really good e-liqen-US-en-US uid. en-US Giant Vapes is the distributor 20 Past 4 en-US gets its e-liquid from. They only sell the en-US best of the best, and I only sell the best of en-US what they offer, all top shelf. In addition to en-US the CBD, my e-liquid is what draws a lot of en-US people here.en-US 20 Past 4 also features a wide selection of en-US glass water pipes, starting around $25, up to en-US about $300 for some true pieces of art.en-US I have the best prices on glass around, en-US said Mr. Newman. To support other local en-US businesses, he stocks a large selection of en-US pipes from Head Nectar, a glass pipe manuen-US-en-US facturer based in Melbourne. The store also en-US features the sturdy TAG water pipes.en-US I pride myself on good glass prices for en-US local, US-produced and imports. Glass en-US should be affordable. Eventually Id like to en-US have somebody here blowing glass.en-US For those who tend to drop and break en-US glass, or worry that they will, 20 Past 4 en-US stocks a large number of silicone pipes that en-US feel like rubber.en-US These are heat-resistant silicone pipes, en-US Mr. Newman said. They are easy to clean en-US simply put in freezer. Once frozen, crack it en-US and tap all the stuff out. When frozen none en-US of the junk sticks to the silicone. Its a better en-US way to clean. And they come with built-in en-US glass or metal screens, so you dont even en-US need to buy screens anymore.en-US 20 Past 4 also offers rolling papers, grinden-US -en-US ers, inexpensive pipes, and natural hemp en-US CBD wraps.en-US Looking at the 20 Past 4 Facebook page, en-US all reviews as of this writing are five star, en-US with customers noting how knowledgeable en-US Doug is about all his products, good prices, en-US and excellent customer service. Reviewers en-US correctly note that the store is super clean.en-US All Google reviews for the store are also en-US five star, with visitors consistently mentionen-US -en-US ing Doug Newmans friendly customer seren-US -en-US vice and product knowledge, as well as the en-US stores wide variety of e-liquid flavors.en-US 20 Past 4 is open Mon.-Fri., 11 a.m.-7 en-US p.m., and Sat. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Closed Sunen-US-en-US days. The store takes all credit cards and en-US debit cards.en-US 20 Past 4 is located at 482 US Hwy 1, Suite en-US 1, Sebastian. en-US For more information, stop by, call (772) en-US 413-0005, email en-USSebastian20past4@gmail.en-US com, en-US or visit them on Facebook, where you en-US can also send Doug instant messages. 2.50% APY 60 MONTHS Member FDIC Annual Percentage Yield rate is effective as of February 28, 2018 and subject to change without notice.

en-US 4 en-USVERO BEACH If you like big mutts, en-US now is a good time to visit the Humane en-US Society of Vero Beach and Indian River en-US County. An abundance of large dogs means en-US endless possibilities to fall in love.en-US HSVB is holding its first ever Go Big en-US AND Go Home adoption promotion to feaen-US-en-US tures the shelters big dogs. The adoption fee en-US of $30 for the first 30 adopters of dogs en-US weighing 40 pounds and over includes all en-US age-appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter en-US surgery, de-worming and a microchip. A en-US six-month supply of heartworm preventaen-US-en-US tive is available for a small additional fee.en-US Big dogs are typically more of a chalen-US -en-US lenge to adopt than smaller dogs, HSVB en-US Director of Education Janet Winikoff told en-US Hometown News. A large segment of our en-US community lives in condominiums and en-US apartments where there are frequently en-US weight and size restrictions, and sometimes en-US breed restrictions. It makes it more of a en-US challenge for us to place these awesome en-US dogs.en-US We have big dogs in almost every size, en-US shape and color, added HSVB Director of en-US Operations Maria Ramirez. And of course, en-US our big dogs have larger-than-life personalien-US-en-US ties! So many dogs just means adopters are en-US sure to find their perfect match.en-US To increase their visibility, HSVB volunen-US-en-US teers are taking the cuddly canines home en-US after hours for sleepovers, and visiting the en-US countys dog-friendly restaurants and stores.en-US Volunteers Rich Buzzell and Barbara en-US Wood regularly take the dogs out to meet en-US and greet members of the community.en-US When youre one-on-one with people en-US you have more of an opportunity to get the en-US dogs adopted, Mr. Buzzell said. Prospecen-US -en-US tive adopters can focus on one dog, really en-US get to know him or her and ask lots of quesen-US -en-US tions. And of course, when the dogs get en-US adopted, if feels really good.en-US Having a big dog means theres more dog en-US to love, said Ms. Winikoff.en-US Shelter staff urge people to focus on the en-US individual animal, rather than breed, which en-US without DNA tests is just a guess.en-US Weve removed all breed labels; theyre en-US all mixes, said Ms. Winikoff. Our focus for en-US prospective adopters is on the things we can en-US definitively state: the weight, behavior, peren-US -en-US sonality, how they do with other animals, en-US medical info. Those are things that we can en-US provide information on that will tell you en-US much more about the animal than just the en-US breed.en-US If interested in learning more about the en-US big dogs available for adoption, HSVB en-US invites the public to visit, get to know them, en-US and watch them play.en-US If not ready to adopt, there are other ways en-US you can help the big dogs of Indian River en-US County. Donate heavy-duty toys like Kongs, en-US blankets, sheets, and towels. en-US Volunteers are always needed to make a en-US difference in the lives of the dogs. Someen-US -en-US thing as simple as reading to them during en-US nap time helps them relax.en-US HSVB also is looking for dog-friendly en-US restaurants, shops or businesses where they en-US can showcase the big dogs. If you know of en-US any, call the Volunteer Office at (772) 571-en-US 6412.en-US The Humane Society is located at 6230 en-US 77th St., Vero Beach and is open seven days en-US a week for adoption. Adoption hours are 11 en-US a.m.-4 p.m. every day except Tuesdays, en-US when the shelter is open from 11 a.m.-6 en-US p.m. en-US For more information call the (7772) 388-en-US 3331 ext. 110 or visit QUALITY DENTURES Hablamos espanol FL Lic# 10444 Reasonable Fees Competitive Prices Deluxe Dentures Full Set or Single One Day Service for Relines & Repairs rrfrrfrfrr ntbft nntbtn AFFORDABLE NON-LAWYER SOLUTIONS, INC.ftfrt 2016 2016 C H O I C E R E A D E R S 2017 2017 C H O I C E R E A D E R S MD AUTO & TIRE 4505 US.

The opinions included are not those of Hometown News or its employees.en-USPlease limit your submissions to 250 words, so that we can include more entries. en-US Readers are asked to refrain from making slanderous or libelous statements. en-USA word of thanksen-USI want to say a big thank you to St. Lucie en-US county school board and SLC sheriffs office en-US for taking a bold and proactive stance by en-US placing school resource officers in every eleen-US -en-US mentary school in the district. Our collecen-US -en-US tive voices are being heard across the state of en-US Florida #enough, #not1more, #never againen-US No parent should ever be afraid to send en-US their kids to school or a movie theater, a en-US church, etc.en-US This is a giant leap for students but weve en-US got miles yet to go.en-USBeware of en-US scam artistsen-USWith a large population of Septuagenarien-US -en-US ans and Octogenarians, come the scam arten-US -en-US ist. Quite a few of us get a good news call en-US from older family members, that they found en-US a way to be useful and make easy money. Its en-US funny because they found out about it in en-US their Spam Folder. They will get paid to be en-US Secret Shoppers and make about $400, just en-US to shop. Then for some strange reason, they en-US all know a person who has made money en-US doing it. The need to make extra cash and en-US feel useful, clouds their judgment, a check en-US for three grand shows up with their name en-US on it and off to the bank they go. On the en-US good news side is theyll quickly share their en-US good fortune news with family. Now its up en-US to us to real them back in and burst their en-US bubble, so they dont lose six grand of their en-US savings, or worse share with friends and en-US start them on the same disruptive path. If en-US you love them burst the bubble as gently as en-US you can and get them to the police for sound en-US advice. They really cant afford to be en-US scammed, which is why it works so easily. en-US Banks will generally waive fees if you go en-US before the bank find out the check is fake. en-US Also warn them about things in the Spam en-US Folder, its there to protect them, Love Florien-US-en-US da but Be Careful!en-USAn opinion on biblical truthsen-USPeople want to believe in a loving God en-US who saves all. Many are taught to say a sinen-US -en-US ners prayer and you are saved, it doesnt en-US matter if you do any bad thing, even willful en-US sinning, and you dont need to do any good en-US thing. This concept is not biblical and wasnt en-US taught until the 1900s. Once saved always en-US saved is a false premise. Preaching a strict en-US message of hard biblical truth is now rare en-US even though the Bible starts and ends with en-US the wrath of God. See Noah in Genesis and en-US read Revelation. Although 75% of people en-US believe it Hell only 4% think they have any en-US chance to go there. Many preachers never en-US mention Hell and avoid the subject at all en-US costs. The feel good sermons of megachurch en-US pastors only say happy thoughts. One says I en-US want to build people up, not tear them en-US down. False self esteem is not a good policy, en-US God does not pass out participation troen-US-en-US phies. Being almost saved is tragic. To be en-US saved we must Believe Jn 3 16, Repent Mt 4 en-US 17, and Forgive Mt 6 12to15, Mt 18 23to35. en-US We must strive to enter the narrow gate to en-US Heaven, only a few ever find it Mt 7 en-US 13and14, Lk 13 23to 30. Billy Graham said en-US 85% of people you see in church you will not en-US see in heaven. 70 % of youth leave church en-US when they leave their parents home. Many en-US are called but few are chosen. Do it right, en-US there is no second chance.en-USA thanks to Hospiceen-USMy husband was terminal. I chose to en-US have Hospice care for him at home. Well, en-US these people are just wonderful. Every one en-US of them. They were so caring. You could en-US tell that they loved their jobs. They also care en-US deeply for the caregiver and offer assistance. en-USApproximately 350 en-US residents from across the en-US Treasure Coast came to en-US Sebastian's Riverview en-US Park on Saturday, March en-US 24 to participate in one en-US of 800 national 'March en-US For Our Lives' protests. en-US The marches stemmed en-US from the Feb. 14 school en-US shooting at Marjory en-US Stoneman Douglas High en-US School in Parkland, that en-US killed 17 and left many en-US more injured. en-USPhotos courtesy of Megan Hootsen-USToward the end, they gave him round-the-en-US clock care, sitting by his bedside. It brings en-US tears to my eyes just remembering what en-US wonderful care they gave him. Thank you en-US Hospice. I know there is a spot in Heaven en-US waiting for you. God Bless You. en-USAnother opinion on gun controlen-USWhen fighting a fire you cant put it out en-US by shooting water on the flame. You must en-US shoot the water at the base of the fire. Guns en-US are the flame not the cause. en-US Government has removed God and our en-US flag from the class rooms. Stop and think en-US when this all started. Now the schools teach en-US Islam but do not allow Christianity be menen-US -en-US tioned. I saw a young girl with a T shirt en-US that was printed with the following: Dear en-US God, Why do you allow so much violence in en-US our schools? Signed a concerned student. en-US The answer from God: Dear concerned stu en-US-en-US dent, Im not allowed in schools.en-US Second, it is almost impossible to find a en-US TV show that is not violent. The news is all en-US about who got killed last night. Video games en-US are all about killing things and people. Our en-US kids are taught violence from birth.en-US Parents of the last two generations have en-US let their kids rule the home and the governen-US-en-US ment has prevented the parents from en-US switching them when they misbehave. Staten-US -en-US ing that it might affect them mentally. Well en-US it has. In a negative way. My generation was en-US switched and spanked when we misbehaved en-US and we never went around shooting people en-US and we loved one another.en-US It should be known that of all the assassien-US-en-US nations and mass shootings since the assasen-US -en-US sination of President Lincoln until today en-US that not one was committed by a member of en-US the NRA. Contrary to the belief of many en-US people the NRA is your protector not your en-US enemy.en-US There are 350,000,000 guns in the U.S., en-US millions unregistered. Criminals can get all en-US they want regardless of the law. There is en-US already a law. It is unlawful to commit muren-US -en-US der. Has that stopped them? en-USMarch For Our Lives

en-US 8 en-USevery parent does.en-US Laura met her husband Travis in the milien-US -en-US tary, where both were combat medics. They en-US got married in the service. After five years of en-US active duty, Laura and Travis decided that en-US Laura should stay at home with their three en-US year old son, Hunter.en-US But Laura got recalled in 2005, for active en-US duty in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. en-US Unknown to her, Travis volunteered to take en-US her place.en-US They sent a letter to where we were staen-US -en-US tioned, and Travis got the mail and opened en-US it. Without even telling me, he went and volen-US -en-US unteered to take my place so I could stay en-US home with our son.en-US He didnt tell me about my orders to go en-US to the reserve meeting for recall until after en-US he signed up. After he made sure he was en-US good to go instead, then he told me about en-US it.en-US When asked if she was angry with Travis en-US for taking the decision out of her hands, Ms. en-US Youngblood replied Travis would always en-US do anything that he could to protect me and en-US our kid. We always tried to do what was best en-US for the long term. What we did was always en-US for the benefit of our kid. He didnt want en-US Hunter to be without me for that long. So I en-US understood.en-US During that deployment, Travis unit was en-US hit by an IED. He died six days later, leaving en-US Laura, who was eight months pregnant with en-US their second child, and Hunter.en-US We got pregnant the day he left, Ms. en-US Youngblood said. He knew that one day we en-US would go back to normal lives. And his noren-US -en-US mal life was his wife and kids.en-US In his last letter home, one of the lines he en-US wrote was any day that Im here can be the en-US day that I die, and Im willing to sacrifice my en-US life to protect my brother in arms.en-US Travis was supposed to come home in en-US about a month and a half when he died at en-US age 26. Laura, also 26, was about eight en-US months pregnant. Hunter was four.en-US I never thought Id be a widow at 26, Ms. en-US Youngblood said.en-US After Travis died, Laura realized there en-US was no way she could send her children to en-US college, as she and Travis dreamed. Thats en-US where nonprofit organizations like Fallen en-US Patriots common in. The groups primary en-US mission is to provide college scholarships to en-US military children who have lost a parent in en-US the line of duty. The goal is to make sure en-US every child of a fallen parent receives all en-US necessary college funding.en-US You would think that the benefits you en-US get for serving your country and dying for en-US your country are great, but theyre not, Ms. en-US Youngblood said. We had to fight just to en-US have dental for the kids. Everything that the en-US children get, weve always had to fight for. I en-US had to use all of my retirement money to en-US raise my kids.en-US Ms. Youngbloods son Hunter is a senior en-US in high school. Daughter Emma is in sixth en-US grade.en-US I never wanted them to get angry at their en-US dad for dying, Ms. Youngblood said.en-US Thanks to the scholarship help from Fallen-US -en-US en Patriots, Hunter is probably going to en-US Indian River State College. en-US He wants to go into either internet secuen-US -en-US rity or zoology, Ms. Youngblood explained. en-US If he went for a masters or a doctorate in en-US zoology, which is his dream, hed be in debt en-US for the rest of his life without the help from en-US Fallen Patriots. You want your kids to follow en-US their dreams and be happy. And thats all en-US Travis ever wanted.en-US Emma is 12 now. She was born two en-US months after Travis died. She wants to be a en-US scientist.en-US Emma never got to hug her Daddy, Ms. en-US Youngblood said. The only thing she ever en-US got to hug was his tombstone. I tell her en-US Daddy made sure that you could go to en-US school. People care that much that theyre en-US willing to help your Daddy fulfill that goal en-US of sending you to school. And thats what en-US Fallen Patriots are doing.en-US Nearly 20,000 dependent children have en-US been left behind by troops killed over the en-US past 35 years. Most surviving spouses make en-US less than $50,000 per year, which often en-US means advanced education for the children en-US is impossible.en-US Even with benefits and other scholaren-US -en-US ships, the average gap per child is approxien-US-en-US mately $32,000 for four years of college, the en-US CFPF says. Eventually these children will en-US need more than $500 million combined for en-US college. The CFPF has granted over $20 en-US million in scholarships.en-US Travis and I often talked about how we en-US wanted our children to go to college and en-US have every opportunity that a quality educaen-US -en-US tion could provide them, Ms. Youngblood en-US said. I cant explain what a relief it is for our en-US entire family to know that Fallen Patriots is en-US willing to help us achieve this dream.en-US The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundaen-US -en-US tion is located at 1818 Library Street, Suite en-US 500, Reston, VA 20190.en-US For more information, visit en-US www.fallenpaen-US-en-US en-US oren-US triots, en-USor call (866) 917-CFPF (2373). rfntbr A-1 Tax Ser vice,Inc.bnbt rfntbr tntntnn nnn n t bn rDimensional Color Razor Cuts Perms Foil High or Low Lights Frostings Facial Waxing Shellac Nails Acrylic Nails Pedicures fntnb t tn rnnnrr b n fnfrb tbn R E A D E R S 1C H O I C E 2015 2016 2015 2016 2017 2017 C H O I C E R E A D E R S ntn b nnnrrb Photo courtesy of Laura Youngblood en-USTravis Youngblood with his son en-US Hunter.

With a laptop en-US you are free to roam where you want to. en-US A laptop with a wireless internet en-US connection gives you the ability to work in en-US any room in the house and even beyond. en-US With a laptop you have the freedom to leave en-US your home (or office) entirely and still have en-US the full blown computer power that you en-US would expect to have with a desktop en-US machine. And with free wireless hot spots en-US popping up all over the place the possibilien-US -en-US ties are endless you can get the same en-US amount of work done that you would en-US expect to get done if you were confined to a en-US desk all day from places like coffee shops, en-US airports, the lobby of a fine hotel or even (if en-US you live in a gated community) down at the en-US clubhouse by the pool! en-US But (as is true with all good things) there en-US are a few gotchas that you have to be en-US aware of if you decide to take your machine en-US out on the road. en-US One issue that causes a fair amount of en-US confusion for the budding road warrior is en-US the inability to send email from on the en-US road. Receiving mail is usually not a en-US problem but the inability to send mail when en-US you are on a connection other than your en-US home network is a complaint that I used to en-US hear quite a bit. en-US Now, not everyone has this problem. en-US There are plenty of people out there who en-US are able to use their laptops wherever they en-US want and sending isnt a problem but there en-US are others who (try as they might) cant en-US send an email when away from home to en-US save their life. The answer usually lies in en-US what email service their system is set up to en-US use when the mail fails to send versus the en-US email services that works no matter where en-US they are. en-US Confused? Lets back track a bit and talk en-US about the typical home internet service and en-US whats included. When you sign up for en-US internet service for your home one of the en-US things that you get with that service is an en-US email address. Your Internet Service en-US Provider (ISP) gives you access to the en-US internet from home and sets up a username en-US which typically becomes your email en-US address. Then your email program en-US (Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Outlook en-US Express, etc.) gets set up with your useren-US -en-US name, password, POP and SMTP en-US settings. Now the POP settings (POP=Post en-US Office Protocol) are the settings that tell en-US your email program from where on the en-US internet your incoming mail can be en-US retrieved and the SMTP settings (SMTP=en-US -en-US Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) tells your en-US mail program where on the internet your en-US outgoing mail needs to go when you click en-US the Send button. The problem sending en-US mail usually lies with the SMTP settings. en-US You see, Internet Service Providers take en-US SPAM (junk email) very seriously and in an en-US effort to try to thwart SPAM, some en-US providers will prohibit relaying outgoing en-US mail through their SMTP servers. What this en-US means is that when an outgoing mail en-US message is being sent from within their en-US network, it goes along without a hitch. But en-US when you try to use your machine in a en-US network that is different than the network en-US you use at home (maybe your home en-US network is AT&T and the coffee shop you en-US are trying to send email from is Comcast en-US for example) then the SMTP server rejects en-US the outgoing mail because its not originaten-US -en-US ing from within its network but from some en-US other network. The message gets blocked as en-US part of the service providers efforts to en-US thwart SPAM. en-US So what do you do? And why is it some en-US people have no problem sending mail and en-US others cant? en-US Many ISPs have a different SMTP address en-US for people when they are on the road. One en-US of the easiest ways to work around this issue en-US is to set up a free web based email service en-US like Gmail so it doesnt matter where you en-US are. With an email services like Gmail you en-US can set up your SMTP settings in your en-US email program to point to Gmails server en-US and bypass your ISPs SMTP settings en-US altogether. Its a simple fix and using a web en-US based email service also lets you keep using en-US the same email address even if you move or en-US change internet service providers. en-US Sean McCarthy fixes computers.

en-US 19 en-USAen-USfter months of delays, the moment en-US finally came. On Saturday, March en-US 11, Florida Club in Stuart re-opened en-US for business. The course closed over 10 en-US months ago for a complete overhaul and en-US refurbishment and locals have been en-US chomping at the bit to stick a tee in the en-US ground and play the course.en-US Based on the response from the golfers I en-US spoke with as they played or finished their en-US round, the wait may have been long, but it en-US was well worth it.en-US Beautiful, fun, so much better, I love it, en-US were just a few of the accolades I heard. The en-US tee sheet reflects it as well, as the course has en-US been nearly full each day and the restaurant en-US is also hopping.en-US The timing of the opening worked out en-US well for those golfers wanting to keep up en-US with the NCAA Basketball Championship en-US Tournament. As players finished their en-US rounds or before they started, the televien-US -en-US sions were tuned to the games. The en-US restaurant had a good crowd enjoying cold en-US beverages and excellent food.en-US "We are thrilled with the feedback we en-US have been receiving, said head professional en-US Brendan Murphy. I am very proud of my en-US staff and the professional service we are en-US providing.en-US Soon, it was my turn to play the course en-US for the first time in a couple of years. My en-US best friend and colleague, Dan Shube, en-US joined me. en-US The first thing we noticed was how much en-US more room there is off all over the course. en-US Where there used to be palmettos and other en-US scrub pinching the fairways, or intimidaten-US -en-US ing your approach, there is now groomed en-US rough now and chipping areas. The new en-US rough is also a lot easier to play from and en-US the ball doesnt seem to settle down like it en-US does in Bermuda grass. There is no en-US shortage of bunkers, as I found one on en-US seven of my first nine holes. en-US Nowhere on the course is there a better en-US example of how open the course has en-US become than at the par-4 12th. This long, en-US severe dogleg right begs you to take a short-en-US cut over the waste area and wetland down en-US the right side. If you bite enough off, you en-US are rewarded with a shorter approach from en-US a better angle. In the past, there were en-US several tall pines to navigate around, as well en-US as a lot of scrub. It was difficult to see the en-US fairway across and the tee shot could be en-US quite intimidating. These have all been en-US removed and the view allows you to pick en-US your line much more easily.en-US Today, with golf balls that go a long way en-US and clubs that assist that, the best way to en-US defend a course that you cannot add a lot of en-US length to is to make putting and chipping a en-US challenge. en-US The greens at Florida Club are larger and en-US feature more undulation. A lot more en-US undulation. We had some putts and chips en-US that broke as much to the left or right as en-US they had to travel to get to en-US the hole. I think we may en-US have found where Jimmy en-US Hoffas car was buried. en-US The par-4 16th hole has en-US seen the most change. What en-US used to be a short, straight-en-US away hole, now features a en-US green moved well to the en-US right and guarded by water en-US on three sides. Here you can en-US hit anything from a hybrid en-US to a driver and have about en-US the same distance on your en-US approach, just from a en-US different angle.en-US The finishing hole remains en-US one of the best in the area. The par-4 en-US requires a well-placed tee shot to allow you en-US the opportunity to hit a middle iron over en-US the wetland, to the green. The cluster of en-US pines that used to deter aiming safely left en-US are gone. I like this as it allows golfers who en-US cannot reach the green the chance to still go en-US over the wetland at a shorter point and go en-US to the green from there. en-US Florida Clubs maintenance staff also hit en-US the jackpot with new mowers, tractors and en-US other equipment. Murphy, who was en-US previously at the Breakers in Palm Beach, en-US knows what it takes to have a great golf en-US course. He also knows that it takes a en-US professional staff to keep it that way.en-US I truly enjoyed my round here and you en-US should make a point of getting your name en-US on the tee sheet as well.

One is for appearance and the en-US other is to maintain good soil health. The en-US latter is the most important reason to en-US mulch your yard. If you look around your en-US environment, you can find many natural en-US and virtually free resources you can use for en-US mulching around your favorite flowerbed. en-US You can use pine needles, pine bark, peanut en-US shells, straw or hay or even crushed rock. If en-US you live on a wooded lot or have lots of en-US trees on your property, you can purchase a en-US chipper and turn your trimmings into a en-US useful groundcover. Many construction en-US areas use chippers to turn the cleared trees en-US into a mulch piles that you can pick up for en-US free. In short, use your imagination. Any en-US natural organic material can potentially be en-US recycled and used as mulch.en-US Many people mulch their yards solely for en-US appearance but the reasons for mulching go en-US much deeper then that. Mulch can dramatien-US -en-US cally lessen the impact of high soil temperaen-US -en-US tures on your plants. A two-inch layer of en-US organic mulch can lower the temperature of en-US the soil by 30 degrees or more. It also helps en-US the soil to maintain more even moisture en-US content by preventing water evaporation. en-US Mulch also helps to shade out weeds from en-US your garden. By keeping at least a 2-inch en-US covering of mulch in your garden, weeds en-US cannot receive enough light to grow and the en-US few that do survive can be easily taken out. en-US Here is a great tip you can use before en-US laying down your mulch. Prepare the area en-US first by laying down a layer of wet newspaen-US -en-US pers. This not only gives you a good base en-US for laying your mulch but it will also give en-US you an extra barrier of weed protection. It en-US also helps do the double duty of recycling en-US your old newspapers. Best of all, it costs en-US next to nothing to do! The paper will en-US decompose in the soil and will also allow en-US water to pass through easily.en-US Another great way to save money and en-US reuse natural resources is to build a en-US compost pile. You can do this by either en-US using a compost bin or you can build the en-US pile right on the ground. It would be wise to en-US locate your compost pile as far from your en-US home as possible so the bugs that help en-US decompose your organic materials do not en-US get into your structure. Using a compost en-US bin can have the advantage of keeping en-US critters out of your pile and also helps to en-US maintain moisture and keeps the compost en-US from blowing around your yard. en-US There are basically two ways you can en-US build your compost pile. If you want the en-US process to be as fast as possible, you will en-US need to follow a few extra steps. You should en-US first wet the area under the compost pile en-US and also put some twigs on the bottom of en-US the pile. You will then want to alternate en-US materials. You need alternating layers of en-US nitrogen, which would be grass clippings, en-US and you also need carbons, which would en-US include leaves, hay and dried straw. As you en-US layer your compost pile always moisten the en-US pile with some water. en-US If you dont have the patience to do this en-US layering process, you can also just add any en-US organic materials such as leaves, grass or en-US dried hay into your pile at your own en-US convenience and add water to keep the pile en-US moist. Keep in mind that doing it this way en-US will result in a slower decomposing process. en-US When the compost is ready, the end en-US material will look almost like humus or en-US good grade topsoil. The entire process can en-US take anywhere from a few months to over a en-US year depending on which method you en-US choose to use. The finished product can en-US then be used on your plants or lawn in en-US place of chemical based fertilizers. en-US Joe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape.
