Two new, unnamed stores will replace the former Sandy’s Hallmark Shop and the Bealls Outlet store located in the Publix anchored shopping center in Chasewood Plaza located at 6230 – 6410 West Indiantown Road, Jupiter.  Construction of the new stores is expected to start later this summer. 

The new stores, each expected to be approximately 4,200 square feet, are part of an overall renovation plan that includes demolishing the 13,000 square foot building that contained the Hallmark and the outlet stores.  Parking will be increased with an additional 40 spaces, and the Indiantown Road entrance will be changed to improve traffic flow going in and out.  Plans also call for speed tables and new landscaping on the east side of the plaza at the Bush Road…

At last week’s U.S. Open, Tiger Woods seemed to show a noticeable wince when he hit out of the thick Merion rough and now we know why.

On Wednesday, Woods announced on his website that he has a left elbow strain and will take some time off over the next few weeks to recover.

"I was examined after I returned home from the U.S. Open, and the doctors determined I have a left elbow strain,'' Woods said on his website. “I have been advised to take a few weeks off, rest and undergo treatment. I'll be ready to go for the British Open, and I'm looking forward to playing at Muirfield.''

While Woods was not specific about when or how the injury happened, it is believed that he injured his elbow on his way to winning The Players…

When the fourth quarter started last night the Miami Heat found themselves in a spot that they were seldom in during the regular season but had come all too familiar with in the post season: down and pressing.

Down 3-2 in the series and entering the fourth quarter down ten points, Lebron James had 12 minutes left to make sure the San Antonio Spurs did not celebrate on the floor of the American Airlines Arena.  Dwayne Wade had 12 minutes left to stage a comeback and force a game seven. And, Chris Bosh had 12 minutes left to save their season.
 
They had battled all year to defend their trophy. 82 games in the regular season, another 15 games in the postseason, and thanks to some late game heroics at the end of regulation and overtime they will have one…
