Dyster Ignores Mother of Junior Golf Entrant as Matter of Course

August 18, 2015

As always, Mayor Paul Dyster has his priorities straight....


The Reporter has learned that a mother of one of the junior golf tournament entrants gave Mayor Paul Dyster a respectful, but forceful, piece of her mind as the mayor arrived and made his way to the awards bandstand.

The parent told His Honor that she was disappointed in the condition of the sand traps on the Red Nine in that they essentially were without sand…a definite liability for a sand trap. And, she told the city’s top elected official, the hole-to-hole signage on the tees was lacking, leaving anyone who is unfamiliar with the Red Nine layout at a loss. Rounding out the mother’s complaints was that the parents, grandparents and guardians were not allowed to rent a golf cart to follow the youngsters. It’s inexplicable that the city wouldn’t welcome cart rental revenue in order to accommodate family members (some elderly or disabled) wishing to follow the youngsters.

As for the sand-less traps an individual on site, that shall remain nameless to protect the innocent, told the mother, “The sand’s in the parking lot, they don’t have available workers to put it on the course.” Bingo! Just as we’ve been writing, Dyster opens cricket fields, creates new parks and expands existing parks but he’s unable to provide basic maintenance for any of it.

So how did Mayor Dyster respond to the mother with the comments? He said absolutely nothing to her and stood silent before walking away. However, those who know Paul Dyster knew he wasn’t going to let it go. As soon as he mounted the bandstand for the awards ceremony he smugly said to the crowd, “The only complaint I received today is that there’s no sand in the traps!” Paul Dyster, true to form, took a cheap shot at the sincere mother. He never asked her name, he never told her he’d consider her remarks, and he didn’t accept her offer as she volunteered to work on next year’s junior golf tournament.
