Our armed services draw on members of communities across the entire nation. Not only do our troops serve, but they have families and businesses who also sacrifice for this service.

And importantly, those who have honorably served in the past – whether during armed conflicts or fulfilling vital functions on military bases. These folks are our fathers, mothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, sons and daughters who proudly stepped-up to defend our great nation. They are those who braved carry both the physical and

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday in May.  It was formerly known as “Decoration Day” and it commemorates all men and women who have died in military service for the United States of America.  Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is known as the informal start of the summer season!

A no-wake zone would limit boaters to about 5 mph, increasing the one-mile trip to the north end of Coral Cove Park from two minutes to about six minutes. Saying fast-moving boaters are endangering swimmers, paddle boarders, snorkelers, the Jupiter council voted Tuesday night unanimously to support a plan to extend a no-wake zone.

When I grew up, Saturday entailed us mowing and weeding.  Not quite my American dream, or that of my brothers as young teens, but we had a lush green lawn and it was every suburbanites dream. To some, a lawn is the crowning glory of their South Florida home.
