The jr. golf program has been involved with local kids for many years at Coral Oaks, with dozens of volunteers teaching the game and it's values to hundreds of kids. It is open to all children at no cost, and in a world of violence involving children, it is a sanctuary of teaching responsibility and respect.

How does a group make a proposal to the city when the council hasn't approved a purchase yet, or maybe we just haven't been told. Who is the SWFGA and what ties to council does it have? How many acres of land will be consumed, is it safe to say that almost half considering its 7 of 18 holes and a large teaching facility and range. Are they ponying up $6 million for the property? I doubt it. Don't muddy the waters, there are plenty of projects that will draw families and visitors to it. If junior golf is included the city's golf professional was recently recognized by his PGA peers as the best in the chapter for junior golf, and has had a successful program for over a decade at Coral Oaks. Form a 501c3 behind him and Keep it in the Cape.

I fins this kind of strange. Who contacted this organization to get them to want to do this? Is this another fiasco like the kayak club or the Olympic training thing from years gone by? Is this another way to fool the residents into wanting the city to purchase the old golf course? If this organization is really interested, let them buy it themselves, not buy after the city buys it.

It appears that Carioscia is looking to push a lot through in his last 1 1/2 years on council. November 2019 can't come quick enough. Too bad we have puppets on council that are too afraid to standup to him. Since he called out Stout regarding LCEC, she has become a "church mouse" and will agree to anything he suggests. What a lovely friendship! As for Gunter & Coviello, they don't want to rattle Carioscia's cage. What a group!

Put the golf course purchase on the general election ballot. I doubt it would be approved even though Carioscia claims 60% of the residents want it.
