Trump environmental rollback spurs mining near Okefenokee

  Trump environmental rollback spurs mining near Okefenokee SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A mining company said Tuesday that it plans to dig for minerals without a federal permit at the edge of the vast wildlife refuge in the Okefenokee Swamp, a big step for a once-embattled project that's now benefiting from the Trump administration's rollback of environmental rules. For more than a year, Twin Pines Minerals pursued a permit under the federal Clean Water Act to mine less than 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) from the home of the largest U.S. wildlife refuge east of the Mississippi River.

The APGA will make stops at these renowned golf courses as part of its 10-tournament 2021 schedule, which was announced on Wednesday.

The Advocates Pro Golf Association’s mission is to bring greater diversity to the sport by paving the way for African Americans and other minorities to become involved in a variety of careers in golf.

In addition to Las Vegas and Scottsdale, the APGA will visit three other TPC courses as part of an expanding partnership with the PGA Tour.

“Our partnership with the APGA has evolved over the past eight years. It may have started with writing a check, but since 2018, we have been able to enhance the Tour’s growth with instruction, course access and additional funding,” PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement. “We are so excited for what is to come in 2021 – between growing TPC Network course access to the player development funds for existing and future APGA members. We look forward to helping Ken Bentley and his team achieve their goals of advancing minority golfers in the professional ranks.”
