WOMEN IN GREEN—South Carolina financier Darla Moore and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will become the first women in green jackets when the Augusta National Golf Club opens for a new season in October. (AP Photos/File) by Doug FergusonAP Golf Writer NEW YORK (AP)—For the first time in its 80-year history, Augusta National Golf Club has female members.The home of the Masters, under increasing criticism the last decade because of its all-male membership, invited former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first women in green jackets when the club opens for a new season in October. Both women accepted.“This is a joyous occasion,” Augusta National chairman Billy Payne said Monday.The move likely ends a debate that intensified in 2002 when Martha Burk of the National Council of Women’s Organizations urged the club to include women among its members. Former club chairman Hootie Johnson stood his ground, even at the cost of losing Masters television sponsors for two years, when he famously said Augusta National might one day have a woman in a green jacket, “but not at the point of a bayonet.”The comment took on a life of its own, becoming either a slogan of the club’s resolve not to give in to public pressure or a sign of its sexism, depending on which side of the debate was interpreting it.Payne, who took over as chairman in 2006 when Johnson retired, said consideration for new members is deliberate and private, and that Rice and Moore were not treated differently from other new members. Even so, he took the rare step of announcing two of the latest members to join because of the historical significance.“These accomplished women share our passion for the game of golf and both are well known and respected by our membership,” Payne said in a statement. “It will be a proud moment when we present Condoleezza and Darla their green jackets when the club opens this fall. This is a significant and positive time in our club’s history and, on behalf of our membership, I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome them and all of our new members into the Augusta National family.”Tiger Woods, who knows Rice through a mutual connection to Stanford, applauded the move.“I think the decision by the Augusta National membership is important to golf,” Woods said. “The Club continues to demonstrate its commitment to impacting the game in positive ways. I would like to congratulate both new members, especially my friend Condi Rice.”Augusta National, which opened in December 1932 and did not have a Black member until 1990, is believed to have about 300 members. While the club until now had no female members, women were allowed to play the golf course as guests.Rice, 57, was the national security adviser under former President George W. Bush and became secretary of state in his second term. The first Black woman to be a Stanford provost in 1993, she now is a professor of political economy at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business.“I have visited Augusta National on several occasions and look forward to playing golf, renewing friendships and forming new ones through this very special opportunity,” Rice said in a statement released by the club. “I have long admired the important role Augusta National has played in the traditions and history of golf. I also have an immense respect for the Masters Tournament and its commitment to grow the game of golf, particularly with youth, here in the United States and throughout the world.”Rice recently was appointed to the U.S. Golf Association’s nominating committee.Moore, 58, first rose to prominence in the 1980s with Chemical Bank, where she became the highest-paid woman in the banking industry. She is vice president of Rainwater, Inc., a private investment company founded by her husband, Richard Rainwater. She was the first woman to be profiled on the cover of Fortune Magazine, and she made a $25 million contribution to her alma mater, South Carolina, which renamed its business school after her.Johnson regarded the membership debate as infringing on the rights of a private club, even though every April it hosts the Masters, the most popular of the four major championships, which brings in millions of dollars through television rights for the highest-rated telecast in golf.

RED BANK – Shaping Red Bank, a coalition working to prevent obesity and improve health and well-being, introduced a bilingual consumer health program today at El Guero Grocery, a bodega on the Westside of Red Bank.Twenty third-grade students from Red Bank Charter School were the first to get a lesson on the coalition’s “Healthy Pick” program, which includes a visual system to assist consumers in selecting foods and beverages that are lower in salt, sugar and fat, and to encourage lean meat and poultry, whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables.“Through the Healthy Pick program, the Shaping Red Bank Coalition aims to make the healthy choice the easy choice for Red Bank families,” said Sandra Van Sant, health officer for the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission, a leader in organizing the coalition.Yellow “Healthy Pick” stickers in Spanish and English readily identify the healthier options on the store shelves at El Guero and shoppers are also receiving bilingual healthy tip cards when they check out as part of the education program.The program piloted by El Guero, is one of three healthy living initiatives developed by Shaping Red Bank and funded with a $7,500 grant from the New Jersey Partnership for Healthy Kids. In addition to Healthy Pick, the coalition is working with faith-based communities to improve their members’ knowledge of good nutrition and with the borough Parks & Recreation Department to improve and promote walking in Red Bank.The Coalition got its start over a year ago when the health commission, The Community YMCA, the Parker Family Health Center and the Red Bank Department of Parks and Recreation began working on the obesity prevention grant. Since then, several more local organizations have joined the local effort to prevent obesity and encourage healthier lifestyles among borough families.“By working together, community organizations can better address the growing dual health crises of diabetes and obesity,” Van Sant said, noting that New Jersey has the highest rate of obesity in the country among children 2-5 years old.The Shaping Red Bank Coalition is part of Shaping New Jersey, a statewide obesity prevention partnership of over 150 organizations dedicated to curbing obesity in New Jersey. Local organizations and businesses that comprise Shaping Red Bank are: the Brookdale Network, El Guero Grocery, Juanito’s, the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission, the Parker Family Health Center, Pilgrim Baptist Church, Red Bank schools, Red Bank Borough Department of Parks & Recreation, the Red Bank Library, the Red Bank Resource Network, Riverview Medical Center and The Community YMCA.
McLellan plans to carry 23 players. So that leaves six spots available for the players currently in Nelson or some BC Hockey League cuts.”We still have four forwards and two defencemen at the BCHL camps battling for jobs, which is good for us, and two at the Alberta Junior Hockey League as well,” McLellan explained.”Plus we have two carded players that haven’t made camp yet due to injuries. So we’re in a little bit of a numbers jam to be honest.”Against Castlegar, in the first of home-and-home series, Nelson fell behind 2-0 and 3-1 in the first period before outscoring the visitors 6-1 in the remaining 42 minutes.”We’ll just work through it,” McLellan said about the hectic preseason schedule that has the Leafs with a 2-1 record to date.”It would be nice to have some of the players here, but I’ve seen them play this summer so I know what they can do.”The rally was a nice sign for the head coach, who says it’s up to the players to determine if they stay or are let go.”If they bring it, they stay, if they don’t they’ll be released back to wherever they came from,” McLellan confessed.ICE CHIPS: The two teams complete the series Wednesday in Castlegar. Puck drop is 8 p.m. . . . McLellan said two players off the Leafs roster last season, Dylan Williamson and Cody Pavarinta, both were signed to play this season for Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League. Williamson finished the season with Nelson as the Leafs top offensive threat with nine goals and 13 assists in 18 games. Pavarinta spent parts of last season in Richmond with the Sockeyes after being released by Nelson following a 15-game stint with the Leafs. McLellan said he very proud the Leafs were able to help the two players reach the next level. . . .Three other players off the roster are playing in the BC Intercollegiate Hockey League — Darnell St. Pierre and Robson Cramer at SFU and Aaron Dunlap at Eastern Washington. The Nelson Leafs defeated the Castlegar Rebels 7-4 in a wide-open Kootenay International Junior Hockey League exhibition tilt Tuesday night at the NDCC Arena.However, at this time of the season it’s not the wins and losses that concerns Leaf coach Dave McLellan.It’s the play of his team that has the lion’s share of the coaches’ focus.”The guys here have games in the next two days that will help us make some final decisions, especially up front,” McLellan told The Nelson Daily Tuesday.”Our defence here is pretty much selected. So in these two games our forwards need to show us what they’ve got.”McLellan said the Leafs have 17 players currently carded for the upcoming season, which begins Friday at home against Kelowna Chiefs.
