U.S. LBM charity golf tourney is a winner
U.S. LBM Foundation’s 3rd annual charity event raises over $200,000.
The U.S. LBM Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by building materials distributor U.S. LBM, raised more than $200,000 for multiple charities through its third annual golf tournament.
The event was held last month at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, Ga. Funds will be used to support several charities across the country, U.S. LBM said.
“The U.S. LBM Foundation was established to help build and give back to the communities where our associates live and work across the country,” said L.T. Gibson, president and CEO of the U.S. LBM Foundation. “The overwhelming generosity of our sponsors will let us continue to provide help and assistance to our neighbors in need through the Foundation.”
Since its inception in 2013, the U.S. LBM Foundation has partnered with several charitable organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, the ALS Association, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation and Team Joseph.
The proceeds from this year’s tournament will be used by the Foundation to support organizations that honor veterans and their families, provide housing for those in need, support the development and health of children, aid victims of natural disasters and promote the prevention and treatment of diseases.

REPORT: SCOTUS gives Weyerhaeuser victory over frogs
Weyerhaeuser is harvesting timber on 1,500-acre "habitat" site.
The U.S. Supreme Court, in an 8-0 decision, has ruled in favor of Weyerhaeuser regarding the designation of private lands designated as habitats for endangered species.
In this case, the species in question is the dusky gopher frog residing in Louisiana.
The Supreme Court has told a lower court to reexamine the federal designation and said the definition of “habitat” needs to be looked at in the U.S. Endangered Species Act.
According to a report by Reuters, the dusky gopher frog has been listed as endangered since 2001.
Weyerhaeuser owns part of the property in question where it is harvesting timber. The 1,500-acre site is scheduled development at a later date.
The Seattle, Wa.-based forest products giant has argued that the frog is not indigenous to the property and the “habitat” designation is incorrect.
It would be interesting to know who was defending the frog's designation as endangered. 18 years on the list is plenty of time to for any species to re-populate.
