TROUBLE WITH GOLF? SHE WAS SWINGING
September 23, 1996
I wish I could remember who — once said that golf was a good walk spoiled. Ray and I can buy that. He golfed for the first and last time more than a decade ago. The place: Oklahoma. The clubs: borrowed right-handed clubs for a polka-dotted with the white salty residue of evaporated sweat. The score: he’s not telling. As for me, I golfed three times with my friend Jean before she quit inviting me to play. I think she thought I’d improve with practice; instead, I got worse. The most serious problem with my game can be solved with balls that have the ability to swim to shore, since any ball I’m lucky enough to hit heads immediately for water. I think it’s because I’m a Pisces.

Hillcrest’s principal, Bob Arevalo, responds: “Hillcrest, along with several other schools in the district, assess a field trip fee at the beginning of the school year rather than requiring parents to send money with their children before each field trip. The $4 collected for each child at enrollment is used to offset transportation costs. We feel that field trips are valuable extensions of our curriculum.”
