Girls’ Golf: Wurster wins third league tournament

STATELINE – Even though Bethany Wurster represents Douglas High School and Alexis Holmes plays for South Tahoe High, they are more like golf teammates. As good “teammates” do, Wurster and Holmes root for one aonother and inspire each other. For two of the top golfers in the Sierra Division, and the state for that matter, a friendship has formed out of competition. “It will fuel you to strive for something better. You just want to beat them. You love them, but you want to beat them at the same time,” Wurster said Tuesday afternoon following a 3-over-par round of 75 that topped the Sierra Division event at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. “It’s kind of like, ‘Oh, I hope you do well, but I hope I do better.’” Wurster, who birdied six holes, finished seven strokes ahead of Holmes, who came in third with an 82. The last of Wurster’s birdies on No. 18 cost Holmes a dinner. “Once I get my scoring figured out, it’s going to be fun,” said Holmes, who believes mismanagement of her game at times prevents her from scoring in the 70s. “I’m driving the ball really well, but I’m just hitting bad irons. I overcompenstate sometimes when I shouldn’t, so I’m 20 yards long, and it’s very difficult to two-putt from there. “Hopefully by zone I’ll get it figured out.” The two friends played Edgewood Tahoe on Sunday in preparation for Tuesday’s round, and Wurster beat Holmes 74-76 by eagling the final hole. Bishop Manogue’s Mackenzie Souers broke up the 1-2 Wurster-Holmes finish by shooting an 80. Alex Phillips, the defending state champion and also playing in the group with Wurster and Holmes, came in fifth with an 85. “It’s the first time all three have played together,” said STHS coach Marsha Butler. “Bethany and Alexis have developed a really good friendship, but they are always real competitive with each other.” Manogue, the defending state champions, were far superior than their division foes on Tuesday, as four Miners scored 90 or better en route to a 339 team total. Damonte Ranch was second with 419 strokes and Galena and Carson tied for third at 422. South Tahoe, which placed third in the previous tournament, finished sixth at 458. The Vikings’ Morgan Murphy shot 109 and Brittany Rumble fired a 118. Team scores 1. Manogue 439, 2. Damonte Ranch 419, 3. Galena 422, 3. Carson 422, 5. Fallon 453, 6. South Tahoe 458, 7.

Service for longtime Valley resident Saturday

A memorial service for Annett Garrison is 10 a.m. April 22 at Carson Valley United Methodist Church. Annett and her husband, Don, arrived in Carson Valley 50 years ago. She worked at Eagle Thrifty Store, Gray Reids in Carson City and Continental Telephone Co. in Minden for 20 years before she retired in 1984. It was not their first visit to Douglas County. Don, who was elected East Fork Justice of the Peace in 1982, told R-C columnist Jonni Hill that he and Annett were taken into custody at Tahoe when they tried to get married here as a young couple. That was around Thanksgiving 1956. They were married 10 days later in Los Angeles on Dec. 9, 1956. Jonni ran the story for Valentine's Day 2007, and Don said that when Annett saw it, he was in a little bit of trouble with her. Garrison and Annett celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary in 2013. ■ ■ ■ I got word this week that Carson Valley United Methodist Church Pastor Pete Nelson will be hanging up his collar this summer after 31 years. The Nevada native arrived in Carson Valley July 1, 1983, to take up his ministry. His 25th anniversary was recognized by Douglas County commissioners. A going away party is scheduled for June 28, we'll get more information on that soon. Kurt Hildebrand is editor of The Record-Courier. Reach him at or 782-5121, ext. 215.

Young love survives a half century

Retired East Fork Justice of the Peace Don Garrison strolled into Woodett’s Diner in Gardnerville late one morning last November for a cup of coffee and picked up a copy of The Record-Courier to peruse during his morning ritual. As he read the 50-year segment of the “Remember When” column which appears every Wednesday, he saw a story from Nov. 29, 1956, of a “runaway teenage couple” and he knew right away that the story was about him. In his amazement, he pointed the story out to the waitress who, not realizing the story was about Garrison, said, “I’d kill the kid if that was my daughter.” Garrison half laughed over her comment as he told her the story was about him and his wife, Annett. The original story said the couple would be married after their second attempt to run away landed them in custody of the Tahoe Township constable. After talking on the phone to the couple’s parents, the couple was returned to Los Angeles where they were wed Dec. 9, 1956. Garrison and Annett celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2006. “We had met on a blind date,” Garrison said. “We went to The Pike, an amusement park in Long Beach, that was our first date.” When they decided they wanted to get married, they found themselves under age and without parental consent, so they ran away. “We went to Arizona to get married,” Garrison said. “We didn’t have any identification when the reverend asked for it and when he, all of a sudden was on the phone, we knew we were in trouble. “They arrested Annett and told me just to get out of town because they didn’t want to charge me with anything. I told her I would follow right behind her (when her parents took her home) but then I had a flat tire on my 1949 customized low-riding Chevy. When I pulled off the road, I sank into the sand and was stuck there for the night.” Not willing to give up on their dream, the future Mr. and Mrs. Garrison tried once more. “I had spent a lot of time in Lake Tahoe, I had gone to school there and I knew a lot of people.” Garrison said. “We got a room at a motel and I had no trouble getting a job as a painter. My boss knew we weren’t married but he never said anything. We were there barely a month when we were found again.” The Garrisons were allowed to marry with the reluctant permission of their parents in Van Nuys, Calif. Upon their union, they returned to Douglas County, where Garrison would spend the next 15 years working in construction. When the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office started the reserve officer program, Garrison signed up. He spent a lot of time with law enforcement friends of the family. “It was rather easy to become an officer back then once you put in your time,” he said. When an opening appeared, he became a full-time deputy. He went on to be a juvenile probation officer for both Douglas County and Carson City, finally retiring as East Fork Justice Court Justice of the Peace in 1987. Garrison is still a Justice of the Peace pro tem, which allows him to preside at weddings. The latest ceremony he officiated was for his grandson. Annett worked for Contel phone company until 1984, when she retired. “It wasn’t always easy,” Annett said referring to making a relationship last. The Garrisons have been residents of the Carson Valley for 43 years. They raised three children, their daughter Donna Juchtzer of Gardnerville, a son Ed who now lives in Placerville and a son Randy who lives in Carson City. They also have three grandchildren and four great grandchildren. They celebrated their 50-year anniversary at the Carson Valley Inn with several local and out of town relatives as well as some long time friends. “I used to wonder how a couple could make it to a 50 year anniversary,” Garrison said. “And then I realized, first of all, you just have to live long enough.”
