The World Gold Hall of Fame recently kicked off its newest exhibit “Grace & Grit: Women Champions Through the Years.” The exhibit celebrates the sport’s most accomplished female champions from the early 1940s to present day, including highlights of 28 Hall of Fame members (as well as potential members).
The exhibit features plenty of treasures from decades of women’s professional golf. Visitors can see a Women’s Titleholder’s Championship green jacket presented in 1965 to Kathy Whitworth, who holds a record 88 tour wins (more than any other professional golfer—male or female).
Davidson Realty Agent and published Christian author Shelley Nemethy will host a community Bible Study called James: Mercy Triumphs starting Thursday October 6th at Davidson Realty’s World Golf Village headquarters. The Bible Study will be held every Thursday night from 6:30 to 8:30 pm for eight weeks.
James: Mercy Triumphs is written by Biblical teacher and renowned author Beth Moore. Beth is founder of Living Proof Ministries and the author of bestselling Bible studies and books for women. According to the James: Mercy Triumphs website, the course centers on, “joy, hardship, faith, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer.” Shelley said every Beth Moore Bible Study she has ever done has been life changing.
New construction is booming throughout Northeast Florida and has left buyers with an important decision to make: buy a new home or a previously owned home.

In this day and age it is easy to manage nearly every aspect of life on our own. However, home sellers are finding many more cons than pros emerge when they consider selling their own home. Back in 2005, 13% of sellers sold their home as a FBSO (For Sale By Owner). Fast forward 10 years and FSBO homes accounted for just 8% of home sales in 2015 (source: National Association of Realtors).
Sherry Davidson, President of Davidson Realty, helped shed light on why this is the case. “Sellers are realizing the drawbacks outweigh the advantages when they list a FSBO,” said Sherry. “In general, we are seeing FSBO homes stay on the market longer and end up selling for less than homes sold with the assistance of an agent who knows the market, appropriate pricing and property marketing techniques.”
