    About 45 minutes northwest of Central Florida, there is a small commu-nity called Howey-in-the-Hills, where you will find the magnificent among the ordinary. Mission Inn Resort & Club is a sprawling resort that features breathtaking Spanish architecture and pristinely manicured Bermuda grassed golf courses. The 18-hole El Campeon course is one of the oldest courses in Florida, having opened in 1926, and offers as much challenge as beauty. This fall, on Veterans Day weekend, El Campeons slopes and lon-gest tees for a par (72) will not only challenge 18 PGA players, but it will be the site of an Inaugural Pro Am Golf Tournament. Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter, Florida Inc. has identified a dire need to address the issue

    of Veterans Housing in their community. According to, of the 23.4 million veterans in America, 1.7 million of them live in Florida. Of those, 50-75,000 of them reside in Lake and Sumter Counties. Many of them are without housing, or live in substandard conditions. As a way to elevate and educate the community on this issue, Habitat for Humanity of Lake- Sumter, in partnership with Mission Inn Resort& Club and The PGA, will be hosting the Inau-gural Pro Am Golf Tournament on Veterans Day weekend.

    Over the two day tournament, both tour pros and amateurs alike will do their best to conquer the almost 7,000 yards of greens and up to 85 feet in elevations that El Campeon has to offer. On both the front and back nines one will find wet, low-lying holes with some tumbling up and some tumbling down. Some of the highlights include holes four through seven that make for a quite a dramatic stretch- all par fours, playing through elevated trees, and down and back up elevated greens. The back nine doesnt get any easier. The 16th, for example, has a green almost entirely encircled with water, requiring a very precise short iron onto the green. The 17th, is a double-dog-leg par 5 lined with trees, plus one in the fairway near the green- only to finish up with a tricky approach shot over the water.

    Why would someone want to challenge themselves in their free time? Why would a PGA player want to face such hazards when they do that week in and week out? Why would an amateur voluntarily sign up to face such golfing obstacles? The answer is quite simple. The challenge and obstacles of El Campeon pales in comparison to the chal-lenges and obstacles our veterans face during and after their service to our country. The commitment of the PGA players to actively participate in The Pro-Am Golf Tournament at Mission Inn Resort and Club shows that the golf-ing community recognizes that our veterans face obstacles many can never even imagine- even after they return home. They face many insurmountable challenges as they try to transition back into civilian life. Many are left homeless. If they have a home, it is substandard and dangerous. In an effort to provide safe, affordable housing to the veterans of their community, Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter, Florida launched its Veterans Housing Initiative.

    As their inaugural builds for the Veterans Housing Initiative, Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter will have two builds for veterans. With the sponsorship and support raised from the Pro Am golf tournament, a disabled Vietnam Veteran will be receiving a home in Wildwood, Florida and a 15 Bed Transitional Housing facility for Veterans will be constructed in Leesburg, Florida. With the support and volunteerism of all those involved, these two builds are just the first tee in a very long round that Habitat is committed to playing on behalf of veterans in their community.

    living green

    What shade of Green are you, unlike 50 shades of Grey you can go green or be really green. Many new home owners and some previous homeowners are starting realize that greener homes equal better resale value but also help to reduce the cost of living in the home. Studies show that green home improvement projects may not be as popular as traditional non-green improvements. Every house requires maintenance. And for most homeowners is mostly just a pain. But for those who favor green living, home maintenance can be an opportunity to take addi-tional steps down that green path.

    Solar outdoor lighting Solar lighting doesn't require electrical wiring, there are no additional charges to your electric bill and you can relocate the lighting any place desired. Solar lights enhance the look of walk ways, landscaping and security.

    Hot water heater maintenance First, if you have a working hot water heater and there's no need to replace it, then make sure you wrap a blanket around the tank. This will help hold in the heat and reduce your monthly energy expenses. Also if its time to replace your water heater you should consider a tan
