"He said, 'Next time, be a little bit more cautious,' " Palefsky recounted in a recent interview.

Last year, Joy Kennelly started her own Christmas tradition. She organized a toy drive for children in Hungarian orphanages. After finishing up work toward a bachelor's degree at Seattle Pacific University, she signed up for a peace mission in Hungary sponsored by the European Christian Mission.

When John Richardson of Laguna Niguel won the U.S. National Senior Amateur championship recently, it was a victory for the old guys. Or so said the 66-year-old Richardson. "It seems like every time somebody breaks through into the seniors at 55, they always clobber the older guys," Richardson said. That's not what happened this time, though. Richardson defeated 56-year-old James Kite of Virginia in the championship match, 5 and 4.
