Tomorrow at the Jupiter Pointe Marina, in Tequesta, Florida is the Lionfish Roundup. This fun event is a unique way to help our local ocean ecosystems manage the over growth of the invasive Lionfish. Diving will begin tomorrow at 7 in the morning.

The Lionfish is a beautiful fish but unfortunately it is an invasive species in our Floridian waters. The lionfish are incredibly destructive to our reef environments as they have no natural predators and plenty of food, thus their rapid population growth. The lionfish eat tiny shrimp which is the main diet of our native reef fish including juvenile grouper, snook, mullet, snapper and many other species. Since, the lionfish have no natural predators here and are destroying our native populations it is up to our…

Last week, realtors from across the nation attended or virtually attended a conference held by the REALTOR® University Richard J. Rosenthal Center for Real Estate Studies during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo about the importance and benefits of “urban developments.”
Walk able urban developments are the up and coming trend in real estate development, and with good reason. In highly populated, urban areas this concept, “Creates walkability with restaurants and stores can help transition an edgy part of town into one that is hip and hopping with pedestrians,” said National Association of Realtors® Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “This type of real estate development transforms the community for the better.”

As a group, humans tend to be fascinated with the idea of the future. Our imaginations offer plenty of room for ideas about where and how people will live in the future. With the world population growing at an exponential rate, these predictions have come to fruition in some cases. Some of these new housing trends are being seen in the U.S. and others are in countries with more extreme “rapid urbanization.” 

Here are 5 examples of housing of the future:

  1. TINY HOUSES- This movement has entered the “mainstream” category as you can find documentaries on Netflix, TV shows and more about something called “tiny houses.” These are homes built with very sensible and efficient space planning, usually spanning only 500 square feet. They have reduced…

North Palm Beach resident Clancy Waugh shot an 8-under par 64 on Monday at Willoughby Golf Club in Stuart to earn Medalist honors and advance out of the Local U.S. Open Qualifier.

The Benjamin High School grad and current Wake Forest golfer earned himself a trip to the June 8th 36 hole Sectional Qualifier at the Bear's Club in Jupiter as the low medalist.

For Waugh, it's a little bit of redemption after a less than stellar sophomore season with the Demon Deacons. After being named Freshman Athlete of the Year and becoming only the 11th Wake Forrest golfer in win a tournament last year, in 2015, Waugh had finished no better than 40th and just a week ago missed qualifying for NCAA regionals by one shot.

"I made every putt I really had a look at,”…

Golf.com conducted a survey with Tour pros on the PGA, Champions, and LPGA Tours. They provided them with anonymity and asked them some hard hitting questions. What we got was 100% honesty on everything from who will win more majors between Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy to would golfers vote for Hillary Clinton in the next Presidential election if she lowered taxes. Here are some of the highlights from the survey.

PGA Tour pros were asked "Who is more likely to win 19 majors: Tiger or Rory?" The Jupiter Island resident was given the upper hand on that one with 76% of the Tour pros surveyed thought Tiger would get to 19 first. Considering that Tiger currently has 14, while Rory only has four, I would tend to agree with them there.

53% of Tour pros think…

For so many years, we all would have had better luck getting into Fort Knox then getting into Tiger Woods' mind and finding out what he really was thinking. A human PR machine, Woods was so calculated in everything he ever said to the media you would have thought that he practiced the answers before each media session.

Over the past few years, Woods has opened up a little more. 2015 specifically has been the most transparent I think any of us that have followed his career has ever seen him. He opened up early in 2015 and shared his struggles with his new swing patterns and what his plans were with new "swing consultant" Chris Como. Then, when he announced he was taking a leave to get his game fixed, he was open an…
