Golf gods on hand for grand opening

[Golf Devils on hand for grand opening]

Commentary in brackets

Famous golfers Watson, Miller to join Nicklaus, Palmer for 18-hole skins event for opening of course
By Ben Sanders - H-P, Thurs., May 20, 2010
BENTON HARBOR - Jack Nicklaus will be on hand for the Aug. 10 grand opening of The Golf Club at Harbor Shores. And three famous friends will join him.

[They are bought and paid for by Whirlpool.]

Nicklaus, who designed the course, will play with golfing greats Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Johnny Miller in the Harbor Shores Champions for Change Golf Challenge.
It will mark the first time the foursome have played together competitively.
The day will begin with the foursome giving a golf clinic at 9:30 a.m. The golf challenge will begin at 10:30 a.m. in an 18-hole "scramble skins" format, a type of match play.

[Protesters will be there at 10am to begin the golf challenge.]

The golfers, who have won a combined 199 PGA Tour events and 35 major tournaments, at 7:30 p.m. will participate in An Evening for Champions, a roundtable discussion at Lake Michigan College's Mendel Center,
"I consider Arnold, Tom and Johnny among my closest friends in golf, so I not only look forward to getting together with them again but also having them with me as we celebrate the opening of The Golf Club at Harbor Shores," Nicklaus said in a news release. "The Harbor Shores Champions for Change event is a great opportunity to highlight how golf is being used as a vehicle for social and economic revitalization, particularly in the Benton Harbor community."

[We wonder if Arnold, Tom, and John are part of JNicklaus and Whirlpool stealing land from the people of BHarbor. The rich steal from the poor.]

A limited number of tickets for the event are available at The cost is $50 for the clinic and golf challenge...

[What kind of person would buy a ticket to consort with thieves?]

"We are truly honored to have four golf legends on board to celebrate the opening of this world-class resort golf venue and help us spark revitalization efforts throughout the community," Harbor Shores Managing Director Mark Hesemann said in a news release.

[They have no intention of revitalizing the community. None whatsoever. These are empty words to deceive people. They have been propagandized into thinking this is a good project - some still may believe it, likely most don't.]

Harbor Shores Marketing Director Ron Eng said discussions have taken place with CBS about filming the event, which could be aired before the 2011 Masters.
All 18 holes of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course are scheduled to open to the public by July 1.

[Please make sure to mark your calendar for the mass demonstration, August 10, 10am.]

interesting that banco wants to protest this event, which is being held in tandem with the Boys & Girls Club of Benton Harbor charity. yet another bad idea from banco -- protest a charity event. although it will allow people to make more fun of this fringe group which is no longer relevant.

The founder of BANCO, Mr. Pinkney,(he is not a reverand!) has done nothing for the people that he claims are victims. In fact, his history is MAKING them victims with his various frauds! Insurance...voter...and now this.

For years you have slandered Pinkney for your undisclosed purposes.

It's obvious what side of the barricade you stand on. Your words are reminiscent of the dark side of humanity as so well described in lyrics of Sweeny Todd:

There's a whole in the world like a great black pit
and the vermin of the world inhabit it
and its morals aren't worth what a pig can spit
and it goes by the name of London.(St. Joseph)
At the top of the hole sit the previleged few
Making mock of the vermin in the lonely zoo
turning beauty to filth and greed...
I too have sailed the world and seen its wonders,
for the cruelty of men is as wonderous as Peru
but there's no place like London!(St. Joseph!)

Because in all of the whole human race
..., there are two kinds of men and only two
There's the one they put in his proper place
And the one with his foot in the other one's face

quoting Sweeney Todd does not make the phony reverend innocent, or more of a "reverend." he is a predator of people's rights -- insurance or voter, or whatever he sees as his next conquest. looking forward to seeing him protest a charity event. lol. you can't make this stuff up.

People who get what's going on know why Berrien County's wealthiest and their minions keep up the vilification of Pinkney. Propaganda is powerful with enough repetitions.

he's never asked for forgiveness of those whom he has plundered and disenfranchised. that is the first step in a Christian process. he has no credibility except for a handful of profoundly mislead people. counting down the days to watch the anti-charity protest! lol!!!!!!

Skin heads are out there and are being watched; Klan Watch, etc. Your comments are consistent with hate groups. Many take a "Christian" facade. Some infiltrate corporations. I hope you will find a healthy method of dealing with your aggression; volunteer or get into a sport. You are misguided on this one; not a lol matter.

Message for 'silence dogood':

For years Rev. Pinkney has led the community in exposing and protesting institutionalized court racism, selective prosecution and sentencing of young black men, endemic police corruption, much of it drugs related, and runaway corporate exploitation and cronyism -- all of which has been demonstrably practiced and accomplished by the Berrien-St. Joseph-Benton Harbor power elite.

Pinkney's efforts and accomplishments are the provable facts here, not tired 'jobs creation' schtick. That whopper was publicly exposed some while back as fraudulent, the result of a scholarly study initiated and completed by the Upjohn Employment Institute.

You brand Rev. Pinkney "Fraud Man," while professing to wield facts?

Rev. Pinkney accomplishes more of import in five minutes of effort than will an entire lifetime spent composing faulty exclamatory excess.
