I tuned in the City Council meeting Tuesday night on Channel 26 and watched and listened to the discussion of what kind of an aquatic center could eventually wind up in Tracy. And as several members of the council indicated, the discussion has gone on a long, long time without any decision being made to move the process along toward actual development.

The biggest thing about golf that I want to do is I want to be able to compete. I have friends who are scratch golfers, and I’m a very competitive person. It is not fun going out there and getting absolutely tortured every single hole. So, this is something that will take a lot of time and a lot of work, and it is something that I am looking forward to doing.”
