  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

America Supports You: Tiger Woods to Honor Soldiers, Families
Special to American Forces Press Service

 
WASHINGTON, June 26, 2007 – Tiger Woods will honor soldiers and military families July 4 at the inaugural Earl Woods Memorial Pro-Am Tournament, part of the AT&T National PGA Tour event, scheduled for July 3 - 8 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.

Woods donated 30,000 free tickets for the tournament to military personnel, who will be treated to special seating behind the greens and hospitality tents.

“It’s very important to me that this tournament honor the men and women who serve in our armed forces,” Woods said. “They put their lives on the line so that we are able to enjoy our freedom, and we’d love for them to come out and enjoy a few days of relaxation. Our intent is to honor and really thank the people that protect us.”

Woods even extended a playing date to a soldier: Sgt. Maj. Mia Kelly of the 1st Information Operations Command at Fort Belvoir, Va. She will tee off with Tiger at 6:30 a.m. on the No. 1 hole on Congressional CC’s blue course. Air Force Master Sgt. Andy Amor of Andrews Air Force Base, Md., and AT&T Chairman Randall Stephenson will complete the foursome.

“I think this is one of the most exciting things ever – it’s almost like winning the Powerball of golf,” Kelly said.

The quartet will be joined on the 15th or 16th hole by former President George H.W. Bush, who will accompany them for the remainder of the round.

Sixty soldiers from Fort Belvoir will unveil a large American flag inside the ropes on the No. 1 fairway to the tune of “God Bless America.” Four hundred U.S. flags also will be distributed to spectators surrounding the tee box, while an Air Force drill team performs and a Navy band plays patriotic songs.

Spc. Vicki Golding, the Army Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation Command’s 2006 Military Idol winner, will sing the national anthem at 11:26 a.m., followed by a flyover by the Army’s elite Blackhawk Helicopter Wing.

Wounded warriors from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington and the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., will be acknowledged by tournament officials and dignitaries.

At 11:38 a.m., Woods will offer a golf tip to former President Bush, who – following a drum roll – will launch the honorary first shot of the tournament.

“Tiger’s doing this in honor of his father, who was a Vietnam veteran,” Fort Belvoir Golf Club general manager Peter Cizdziel said.

“I think it will be beyond words,” added Kelly, who was born in South Korea in 1965 and adopted in 1970. She moved to the United States in 1974 and attained U.S. citizenship 10 years later. She joined the U.S. Army in 1983 and has deployed five times to Panama, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Kelly, who holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Maryland, began playing golf in 2004. She is a member of Fort Belvoir Golf Club, where she plays several times per week.

“I would rather play golf than do almost anything else – it’s an absolute passion,” said Kelly, who has an 11 handicap.

Sgt. Timothy Smith, who works for the Joint Personal Property Shipping Office at Fort Belvoir, is scheduled to serve as Kelly’s caddie during the Pro-Am.

Complimentary tickets for active-duty military personnel to attend the second round of the AT&T National on July 6 are still available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Pentagon’s ITT/ITR Ticket Office.

A limited number of tickets also are available for purchase at the ITT/ITR office for $20 to attend daily play July 3 - 6 or $25 for the final two rounds of the tournament.
