B15-CBN-11-28-14-12

Golf Tips Todd Elliott telliott@hideawaybeachclub.org It’s all in the hips” is a funny line from the movie “Happy Gilmore.” Happy’s teacher, Chubbs, tells him this line while helping with his golf swing. The line has some truth to it. The hip movement is important for many reasons. The number one reason is that hip rotation affects pelvic rotation and footwork. If a golfer’s hips move properly, the correct balance and footwork can be achieved. Many of us have limitation in our hip rotation. When the hips are limited in the golf swing, compensations are made with other body movements. Compensation ... Read More »

Memo to Voters and Congressional Candidates

A10-CBN-10-31-14-2

By Roy Eaton Time has come for the American voter to voice their pleasure/displeasure with Congress by wisely casting their ballot in the upcoming election for the candidate of their choice, and time will soon come for Congressional candidates elected to office to live up to our expectations by demanding that our 114th Congress address the concerns and interests of all Americans rather than those of lobbyists and special interest groups. Humorist and author Dr. Jim Boren once said, “Taxation with representation ain’t so hot either.” Our current Congress has done much to support this assessment, but its reign of ... Read More »

Sleep Is A Beautiful Thing!

sleep

By Carol Glassman The commercials tell us that “sleep is a beautiful thing”, and I quite agree, especially if you have a good mattress and sweet dreams. A lot of people I know choose the time just before drifting off to sleep to “speak” to their dearly departed or to have a few words with some higher power in which they believe. Since the last thing we do before we enter dreamland often influences our dreams, we might be feeding and stirring our subconscious. Sometimes when we dream of those we have lost, it’s an uncanny feeling when we awake ... Read More »
