Locals experience Masters Tournament at Augusta
They walked on ‘Sacred Ground’ BY ED TOWNSEND
his year’s golf feature will take us on a tour of the Augusta National Golf Club and the famous Masters Tournament as enjoyed through the experience of local golf professional Robert Menges, his wife Kathy, Liberty golfers Tom and Annie Willi, Youngsville golfers Phil and Rose Fanning and Smallwood golfer Mike Klimchak. The in-depth description by these seven golfing enthusiasts tells us what it’s like walking on the “sacred ground” at this year’s Masters Tournament.
Bob tells us that “any golfer, young or old, has stood on a green of a golf course, whether it was on a putting green or the 18th hole, and uttered these words as they hit their putt, ‘This is to become the Masters Champion.’ If you have ever played golf, or even watched it, you know what the Masters Tournament is.” He pointed out that “CBS does a great job promoting it in the months before. The music is classic, and we wait patiently for April and the famous Azaleas which adorn the greens and tall, stately Pine trees which line nearly every fairway.”

The enthusiasm in Bob’s voice when he was talking with us about this Masters visit showed extreme excitement as he noted, “I was very fortunate to be able to attend the Masters this year. As I walked through the gates I could not contain my excitement. I was with good friends and family, but I wanted to leave them in the dust to see as much of the golf course as I could. My wife, Kathy, held me back as she was taking pictures of everything and everybody. From the moment you walked in, you knew you were on sacred ground. All of the volunteers attend to your every need and guide you to wherever you want to go with a smile and a thank you.”
AN UNFORGETTABLE PLACE
The views at Augusta is something that this columnist will always remember when visiting this event some 10 years ago and having the opportunity to play the course with members of the media and professionals. Bob picked right up on this subject when we talked about it as he said, “I have always heard how beautiful Augusta National Golf Club was, but until you are actually there, you have no idea. As soon as
you get through the gates, you are in the practice area.” In commenting about this visit to what the golf world calls “sacred ground,” Menges told us, “I was in awe and I hadn’t even gotten to the holes yet. Everywhere you look, all you see is green. When you finally get to the first hole you see the big white scoreboard with all the names of the participants located about 100 yards down to the right of the first hole, and then starts our journey. I was so fortunate to be with Tom and Ann Willi, who have been to Augusta many times. They suggested we walk the back nine first. Because it was Wednesday, the last practice day, we were able to see most of the participating golfers from three-time Masters winner Tiger Woods to defending Masters champion Bubba Watson. The course is very hilly, something that television doesn’t always capture. The grass is perfectly manicured and feels like plush carpet under your feet.” When reaching the part of the course often referred to on television as the “Amen Corner,” CONTINUED ON PAGE 11 CATSKILL-DELAWARE, SUMMER 2013 • 9

Bob said, “My jaw dropped and I was speechless because of the beauty that was in front of me. The grass is greener than green and the Azaleas were in full bloom. Actually there are azaleas throughout the course. All I could think about is the history of the Masters tournament and how I was walking on holy ground for golf.”
MORE GREAT EXPERIENCES
Following their walk of the back nine, the Sullivan County golfers stopped for a bite to eat, Bob noting that “a pimento and cheese sandwich, of course, which by the way is only $1.50,” they then went to watch a little of the par-3 contest. Noting that there were concessions throughout the course, Menges said there was “very short wait times and so efficient. We found out you could have your picture taken in front of the clubhouse at the end of Magnolia Lane and they would email it to you without charge, another thing that the Masters tournament does to make your experience incredible.” Excitement grew in Bob’s voice when he told
us about the time they were waiting in line and all of a sudden “ we saw two of the games icons hitting balls, loosening up for the par-3 contest, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus. To be able to see these two stalwarts of the game interacting was priceless.” Their Masters experience then took them to walking the front nine to be able to see the whole course. Bob pointed out that “there were no golfers out because they close the course at 3 p.m. to prepare it for the first round, which started Thursday. “It was very quiet and peaceful so I just soaked in the atmosphere. You cannot believe how well the course is manicured until you see 16 fairway mowers going up the fairway in unison. The attention to detail is impeccable. There is not one blade of grass out of place. There is not one brown spot anywhere. Wrappers for food and trash cans are green,” Menges added.

was Menges’ description of the large scoreboard we all see on television during the tournament and that “none of the scoreboards are electronic and all are kept by hand,” he said. If you want to see beautiful grounds Bob said that there were flowers everywhere. Friendly hosts make this event what it is as Bob described “the staff and volunteers are so hospitable. They are so proud to be part of the Masters. People are commenting all day at how stunning Augusta National Golf Club really is.” The tremendous satisfaction of this outstanding golf outing, coming from a professional like Bob Menges is summed up with his remarks, “if, and this is a big if, you ever have the opportunity to go to Augusta during the second week in April, you will feel like a child on Christmas morning. The anticipation is great and the experience awesome. It’s very difficult to put this into words, I can’t do it justice. It’s something that needs to be seen in person.

For Tom and Annie Willi, owners and operators of the popular White Sulphur Springs Inn, they commented that their “love affair with Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters began the first week of April 1992.” Tom noted that April 1 of that year was their 20th wedding anniversary and “unbeknownst to me my wife Anne had arranged for the two of us to travel that week to Augusta to attend the Masters… talk about a little kid at Christmas.” For several years following the anniversary surprise the Willis’s attended the tournament with Tom adding that these trips “provided me with some of the most special times of my life.”

Any visit to the Masters truly brings forth a unique feeling as was evident with Phil Fanning noting, “Gary Player said that it’s the only place where you choke as you are driving down the driveway and I felt something similar as I walked through the security gate and the attendant said to me good morning sir… and welcome to the Masters.” Phil noted that as the group approached the newly-built practice facility they were “greeted by the sight of players hitting balls and among them was champion Adam Scott, whose golf balls off his driver were coming to rest some 300 yards away and his accuracy was so exact that all the balls were within a few feet of each other.” The nervous anticipation continued for Phil and the need for a plan of action for the day was quickly finalized by “Tom and Annie Willi as this was Tom’s 17th Masters (Annie a few less) as they were like experienced caddies and their experience and firsthand knowledge of this place would prove to be invaluable.” Noting that the professional golfers were relaxed and fan-friendly on the day of their visit, Phil said he saw “Lucas Glover, who gave me a thumbs up and a tip of the hat when I cited New

York and Bethpage to him after he hit his tee shot on 17… that was cool.” In describing their walk out of the woods adjacent to the 13th green, which is the backside of Amen Corner Fanning said, “this was what I could not wait to see – the prettiest three-hole stretch in golf. On 13 alone there are over 1,500 azalea bushes all in bloom. “Looking at the par-3 12th hole from the tee has to be the loveliest site in golf,” Phil added. Commenting about the course maintenance workers Fanning said, “the fairway mowers lineup side by side and mow the fairway with a single pass in minutes… this is impressive.” “My first time at Augusta National was an experience I will never forget and Tom Willi was so right in saying the place will exceed my expectations,” Fanning said.

par-3 contest and that when a patron asked Player who he was playing with on Thursday Gary responded by saying, “Playing? I’m 80 years old. Do you know how many 80-year-olds can walk this golf course? Forget about playing it.” Player was referring to how long and hilly the Augusta National Golf Course is. Mike was amazed also at “the magnificent beauty of each and every blade of grass, the flowers and tree lined fairways.” Talking about his younger years when he caddied at Fresh Meadow Country Club on Long Island, Mike noted that this private course was well-manicured, but that “Augusta National was
far more beautiful and breathtaking.” Mike’s years of experience both as a caddy and player was very evident as he talked about how “astonished I was at Augusta by how the contour in the greens can make you pay for a bad shot and in order to shoot a good score you must play a shot to the proper place on the green in order to make the putt.” He added, “the greens are what make the course so difficult. “I felt so fortunate to be able to see this amazing piece of land and I must be a part of the .5 percent of the 80-year-olds in the world (I’m only 78) but it was absolutely worth the wait,” Klimchak noted.

Sometime perfect Angels have dominated women’s softball BY ELI RUIZ • FILE PHOTOS
ith some form of a Sullivan County Women’s Softball League championship – either regular season, playoff or both – in 19 of the last 25 seasons, it’s safe to say that the Charlie’s Angels softball team has been something of a local sports dynasty. With a perfect 20–0 record last season, the team was preparing for its 26th season as this was being written. Formerly sponsored by Club 39 in Monticello, and so named, the team was also called Torrens’ Construction in the past. The original team started out in the Liberty 24 • CATSKILL-DELAWARE, SUMMER 2013
Women’s Softball League. In 1987, after the Liberty league folded, the team moved over to the Monticello league – today called the Sullivan County Women’s Softball League. Explains Charlie’s Angels sponsor, pitcher and coach Joanne “Jo” Walls, “My father would come to every single one of our games and he’d call all of us his angels… he was just always there.” Charlie Walls would pass in 1990. The following season Jo decided to assume sponsorship of the squad and rename it Charlie’s Angels after their biggest fan.
Cindy Ellmauer of Youngsville has been a longtime member of Charlie’s Angels. A combination of veterans and talented newcomers keeps the team on top of the Sullivan County Women’s Softball league.
The team would win a championship that including mother-daughter duo Debbie first year under the new moniker, and it has Ackerley and Tanya Martin. dominated ever since. In fact, Ackerley, a catcher, is one of several “It was mostly just luck,” says Wall, regarding original charter team members that are still the assembly of such a talented team. “Most of with the Angels. Players like first baseman the early team was comRobyn Gannon, outfielder prised of players from other Enjoyed 22–0 season in 2012; Karen Fisher, second baseteams because the Liberty man Leanne Mangabang, have captured 19 regular league had ceased to exist… pitcher Lisa Krom, and of we all just wanted to play Walls, have been season titles or championship course ball.” there from that first season Decades later the team feaplayoff series in 25 years.

We go to each other’s kids’ weddings, we go to each other’s family funerals and we all hang out throughout the year.

When you’re good each and every year people want to knock you down; they stop rooting for you on the field… off the field it’s a different story, though.” Different story indeed as the team has been very generous to the community and local nonprofits, playing in several charity tournaments each year. “We’ve done stuff for the Lupus Foundation, the Alzheimer’s Association and others,” affirmed Walls. “I think we’re all good people in this league and it’s important to us to be active and contribute to the community that supports us.” With about 15 regular members, Charlie’s Angels has a waiting list of local athletes looking to join their ranks. “We don’t need anybody right now and we’re also a little picky about who we recruit… we’re

not necessarily looking for the most amazing athlete, we look for good people who fit with our team,” notes Walls. Speaking of amazing athletes, though, the team does have one of those as well, in Monticello High-School physical education instructor and varsity softball coach Shannon Dietrich. “God, if there was a professional softball league she’d probably be MVP of it… she’s just unbelievable out there,” says Walls of Dietrich. With so many championships to their credit, Charlie’s Angels has had its fair share of Diescher-like standouts over the years. Walls says, “We had Shirley Townsend, who people used to dread facing on the mound… she was a beast out Joanne Walls there.” Coach | Another star player Walls
credits with a lot of the team’s early success was Joyce Correa, who “…always had a hot bat for us.” With their 26th season on hand, Walls is understandably confident: “I expect us to be one of the top, if not the top, teams out here. We compete every year and this year I don’t expect it to be any different.” An extremely competitive league, Charlie’s Angels isn’t the only topnotch team competing for a county championship each year. In fact, Walls says, “We’ve done really well in the league but you also have great teams like Fosterdale Equipment – formerly Hotel Victoria, Frankie’s Bar and most recently Cooper Paint and L&B Tack that are just really good each year… so it’s really not just us. Should be a great season.” We’ll just have to wait and see. For more information and complete league schedules please go to www.leaguelineup.com.

The team from the Lazy Beagle, including Manager Peter Howley, waitstaff and a chef, are excited to have found a new home at The Boathouse Cafe.
STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAITLIN CARNEY
he Boathouse Café at Tennanah Lake may be a familiar fixture on the local entertainment and dining scene, but the recent addition of Manager Peter Howley has the eatery poised to take the field by storm. The restaurant itself has been lakeside for nearly three years, offering a perfect location for boaters and visitors alike to enjoy the picturesque views. Something wasn’t clicking for Sue Baquet and her family, who own the building. In meeting Howley, they realized that he would be the key to bringing the restaurant to its potential. Howley brings to the Boathouse a
breath of fresh air and a strong background in the restaurant management field. He worked for many years managing restaurants in New York City, was the maitre d’ at the Villa Roma, and most recently enjoyed a 41⁄2-year stint at the acclaimed Lazy Beagle in Livingston Manor, opening the restaurant and managing it until its unfortunate demise in the Hoos Building fire last fall. Howley and many of his staff are excited to have a new home at The Boathouse, while hoping that one day the Lazy Beagle can reopen in CONTINUED ON PAGE 36

Sue Baquet and Peter Howley are excited to introduce the new Boathouse Cafe to the visitors and residents of Tennanah Lake and surrounding areas. They hope to offer an enjoyable and relaxing dining and social experience for their guests.
Livingston Manor. The team brings with them a new menu and an array of specialty beverages to the comfortably appointed restaurant. Whether coming in off of the lake or just looking to enjoy a casual meal out, diners will not be disappointed. The crisp interior of the restaurant with its woven cane chairs, glass top tables, and crisp white dinnerware echoes a seaside experience one might enjoy at the Cape. Start your meal with a delectable selection from the appetizer menu including fresh homemade soups, Tomato bruschetta, steamed mussels, home-style macaroni and cheese, coconut shrimp, or the Cajun calamari. The latter offers spicy perfection: calamari delicately breaded and fried, served with aioli drizzled on a bed of fresh greens. For lighter choices, select something from the Pub Grub section. Choices include fish and chips, potato and leek bangers and mash (made with sausages specially selected and crafted at a butcher in Woodlawn), the Boathouse Burger, CONTINUED ON PAGE 38

on’t blame me. I try everything else first.” If he could speak, that’s the way the eye-catching black-and-white striped skunk might defend his most notorious attribute: the ability to douse animals and people with one of the most pungent natural odors known to man. Primarily a peaceful creature – friendly enough that some humans make pets of them – skunks just want to be let alone. Alone at dusk to forage for grubs, honeybees, grasshoppers and crickets. Alone to stroll across a lawn sometime in late June or July, their band

of little skunk babies toddling behind, looking like exact copies of their parent. But should a dog or a cat or an occasional human get too close for comfort, the skunk will speedily summon the only weapon it possesses: its magnificent scent glands. First the housecat-sized animal gives fair warning. “They stare at you and it’s like ‘Look – I’m a skunk!’” declares Dr. Moria Norris of the Jeffersonville Animal Hospital, who also owns a good-sized farm where domestic animals roam. “Then skunks stamp their feet, saying again, ‘Look – I’m a skunk!’” When danger keeps coming, notes Norris, “in a matter of micro-seconds, they swing their butts around in a complete horseshoe, and they fire away.” Situated under the tail, the skunk’s ovalshaped glands produce about one-third of an ounce per week of amber-colored musk. That’s
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County offers the following tips for keeping skunks out of your life. Put trash out in morning instead of evening if possible, or keep it in a protected area. Skunk-proof garbage cans with tight fitting lids or secure them with straps. Don’t leave pet food out at night. Enclose compost piles in a framed box, a sturdy container such as a 55-gallon drum, or in a commercial composter. Close garage doors and basement windows at night. Fence beehives or poultry areas. For specifics on how to keep skunks from denning under buildings, Cornell Cooperative offers a helpful packet. Call them at 292-6180 and ask for “Home Grown Facts: Skunks”
enough for the equivalent of five consecutive discharges of the fine spray, which skunks can easily shoot to a distance of 10 feet and more. A skunk might also give other warning signals, such as opening its mouth in a threatening manner and then lowering its head and growling. It might also rake the grass with its claws before turning its body and shooting the foul-smelling musk. CONTINUED ON PAGE 57 CATSKILL-DELAWARE, SUMMER 2013 • 53

As is typical with Mother Nature, the striped little mammal that is viewed with such caution actually has an important place in the scheme of things. “Skunks are valuable in that they eat potato bugs, rose beetles, tomato worms and cabbage worms,” said Robin Wagner, a master gardener with Cornell Cooperative Extension in Liberty. “They eat hops grubs and white grubs and the mature beetles and moths of both these grubs.” The striped worm, which feeds on backyard carrots and parsnips, is also part of the skunk’s diet. Megan Hoffman, an environmental educator with the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum in Cornwall, leads school programs that teach children about native animals such as skunks.

“Skunks eat a lot of stuff that we don’t particularly want around,” Hoffman says. “Insects are their first choice. The first sign of a skunk when you’re hiking is a tree stump scraped apart – skunks almost tear it apart as they go after larvae and grubs.” A member of the same group with minks and weasels, the skunk survives, too, on berries, grasses and nuts and eats grasshoppers and crickets in abundance. They will steal eggs or baby birds from a nest, they kill and eat mice and rats – and they have been known to feast on dry cat food that might be left outside someone’s home. Foraging for food takes place at night and at dawn. Skunks tend to sleep most of the daytime hours although it’s not unheard of to spot a skunk in daytime. Sometimes it’s a female who must feed in the day and tend her young at night. Or nighttime predators may require a skunk to lay low and choose the daytime to feed. In the wild, skunks tend to live in fields and pastures, often in a family den underground or in a hollow beneath rocks or fallen trees. They are well known for killing woodchucks and then
moving into their dens. As some homeowners find, they also burrow under people’s porches or decks or under piles of rock. Mating takes place between late February and late March. The female gives birth in May after building a grass nest within the den. On average, CONTINUED ON PAGE 59

five to six babies, about the size of field mice, are born. The young possess musk in their glands at birth and can spray after eight days. Soon they are out and about with their lumbering, slow-moving parents, learning to dig up grubs and take down beetles with their paws. They catch snakes, raid bird’s nests and dig into mice and rabbit burrows. In winter, skunks sleep most of the time in their dens with six or eight cuddled together. Sometimes two skunk families hole up together, passing the winter in harmony. Occasionally males will leave the den in search of food.
PERFUME AND PROTECTION
The boldly-colored creature tends to be mildmannered with a top “galloping” speed of about 10 miles per hour. That makes it a prime target for death by automobile. Other predators are owls, dogs, coyotes and foxes, though the smelly musk warns off many such attacks. According to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the striped skunk has been protected under law since the late 1800s as an important furbearer. State regu-
lations allow only a limited open harvest season on hunting and trapping skunks. Wanted for their silky black pelts, skunks were particularly popular just after the Great Depression when fur-trimmed cloth coats came into vogue and “skunk fur” was called “American sable.” Today, skunk fur is back in popularity, with such fashion houses as Prada and Fendi using the glossy pelts on hats, handbags and coats.

To this day, small amounts of the skunk’s musk oil are also used as “carriers” in some perfumes. The lasting quality within skunk spray helps hold the perfume’s scent longer. For environmentalists, the misunderstood skunk has more than redeemed himself. “Most people think only that ‘skunks stink,’ but skunks only ‘smell’ when they spray,” says Hoffman of the nature museum. “I like talking to
Skunk’s spray is nauseating at close quarters and can cause blindness for about 15 minutes. Veterinarian Dr. Moria Norris of the Jeffersonville Animal Hospital offers the following recipe for dealing with a pet’s getting doused. Mix one quart of hydrogen peroxide with ½ cup of baking soda and two to five tablespoons of dish detergent. Lather the dog – they tend to get “skunked” most frequently – making sure to avoid the eye area. Let it stand for five minutes and then rinse clear. Be sure to mix the ingredients in an open container and use immediately. Oxygen released from hydrogen peroxide may cause a closed container to explode.

Anglers have the choice of two great trout and fly fishing streams – the Beaverkill River and Willowemoc Creek. Their confluence, Junction Pool, is one of the most famous fishing spots in the United States. A fairly new community effort, Riverside Park,
adds another access to the Willowemoc and with its trails and information stands is a welcome addition to the town. Roscoe offers plenty of fishing outfitters, and for novice anglers, there are two different ways to get their feet wet (see sidebar). Trout is celebrated everywhere, from wood sculptures to the menus of local restaurants.

Another kind of history is celebrated at the Roscoe-Rockland Fire Department on Old Route 17, facing Stewart Ave. In addition to the antique fire apparatus and other artifacts inside, pause at its prize-winning memorial

Railroads are gone, but trails remain:
This creative use of wood and paint in Mountaindale evokes the locomotives of yesterday which once steamed along the O&W Railway – now a series of trails.
Walk/bike L where trains once rumbled
STORY AND PHOTOS BY DAN HUST
ocated not far from where America’s very first steam locomotive initially took to the tracks, Sullivan County’s Catskills have been crisscrossed by rail since the middle of the 19th century. While only the old Erie mainline still exists as an active railroad, happily enough much of the near-150-year-old railbeds of long-defunct companies remain as rail trails open to the public.

LEFT: The rerouting of Route 17 past Parksville took out some of the old railbed but provided an opportunity to create a parking lot and redo the existing trail. BELOW: Don’t miss the spectacular waterfall along the Parksville Rail Trail!
Officially, there are five sections of the former New York, Ontario and Western (O&W) Railway (in operation from 1871-1957) that can be easily visited all year long. So bring your spouse, your kids, your friend, your pooch, your walking shoes, your bicycle and your sense of wonder and adventure – we’ve got rail trails to explore! Parksville Location: Old Route 17 (Parksville Road), right off new Route 17’s Exit 98 Length: approx. 1.5 miles Trail type: Mostly hard-packed dirt and ballast, except for new state-created entry-exit trails of finely crushed stone – but caution needs to be maintained along some portions, where the oftunfenced railbed drops steeply down to the Little Beaverkill Parking: Dirt lot at eastern end, paved and lined lot with new signage at western end Nearest town: Parksville, at eastern end
Points of interest: The Little Beaverkill parallels the path and includes a series of rushing waterfalls; tributes to Parksville’s military veterans and to a deceased worker on the recent realignment of Route 17 can be found on the eastern end CONTINUED ON PAGE 79

The Mountaindale Action Committee built this wooden arched bridge as the Woodridge-Mountaindale Rail Trail enters the charming hamlet. Though adjacent to rather than directly upon the old railbed, the bridge is too tempting to resist and provides a fun way to cross Sandburg Creek, one of the countless brooks the O&W had to span on its route.

through a swamp, after all) Parking: Multiple points along South Road and one on the right-of-way itself, accessed off Haven Road (park in designated lots only, as the area is well-patrolled) Nearest town: Wurtsboro on the northern end, Westbrookville on the southern end Points of interest: The gorgeous Bashakill Wildlife Management Area encompasses the entire trail, featuring wildlife both rare and native to the area, especially water-loving creatures; two observation decks allow visitors to climb a few feet above the vast wetlands to get a better view; a tunnel conveniently provides access under the busy Route 17 Quickway History: This branch of the O&W was built more than a century ago to connect the main line in Summitville to the Port Jervis and Monticello Railroad in Cuddebackville, which itself became a leased branch line of the O&W. Despite the railroad’s demise in 1957, the state built a tunnel under Route 17 in Wurtsboro to accommodate the right-of-way – big enough for a train to pass through, though none ever did More info: www.trailkeeper.org/trail/ bashakill-o-w & (for an excellent map) www.thebashakill.org/dx.htm
The serene beauty of the Bashakill wetlands is irresistible – and easily found along the entire 5.5 miles of former O&W railbed shooting straight through it.
