I too, would like to hear the number of rounds played this year. It has been ideal weather for golf and yet, driving by, the lot is always half full. Several things that are killing them. Local competition is showing Westview how to market and adjust to the economy and times. Westview has courses like Springlake offering deals to get people to play for less green fees or even Spirit Hollow offering…

I'd concentrate on the attracting the golfers, which by all accounts are lacking. Unless the wildlife are paying greens fees, then disregard first part.

I didn't imply anything, I just stated the facts. Your comments on what went down with this marine is totally bogus. You should run down to Ferguson and help Al out as your perception of facts is incredibly stupid. I never said a veteran is above the but a veteran by his service is entitled to some consideration. Secondly, being called out by you after all your pompous remarks is an honor!

And, as a veteran too, I don't expect any special treatment. But, when the President of the U.S. is on the phone with the Mexican President I do expect a request to ensure fair treatment which never happened. And I expect the Secretary of State, when asked by family members and aware of the facts of the case to also make an attempt to help. As you noted consular officers aren't supposed…

Tesla Gets Missouri Break as House Lets Direct-Sales Ban Wither

Proposal would have required vehicles to be sold through dealerships only

From bloomberg.com:

Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) won’t be barred from selling its electric cars directly to Missouri customers after the state’s legislature adjourned without voting on a bill the company called a “sneak attack” on its business.

The current session concluded yesterday in Jefferson City without taking up a House bill that had passed Missouri’s Senate with no public comment or debate, Tesla said in an e-mailed statement. Language was added to the bill, dealing mainly with rules for all-terrain vehicles, to explicitly require consumers to buy vehicles only through franchise auto dealerships.

“The defeat of this anti-free market proposal is a victory for Missouri consumers and for the state’s economy,” Diarmuid O’Connell, Tesla’s vice president of business development, said in the statement.

The challenge in Missouri arose as Tesla appealed New Jersey’s March decision to ban direct auto sales by manufacturers and as it works to keep selling Model S sedans at its Massachusetts stores. While Texas and Arizona also bar direct sales of Teslas, the Palo Alto, California-based company worked out arrangements in Ohio and New York this year to keep selling in those states.

The company, now the largest auto employer in California, has one store in Missouri in University City, near St. Louis, where it also operates a service center. A second store in the state may be added in Kansas City, O’Connell said in a conference call this week.
