The average golfer enjoys water about as much as the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz . " Those teeing up at Eisenhower Golf Course, a tree-lined public layout in Crownsville, might have even worse nightmares than the norm. Thick, native grasses up to 3 feet high surround every creek and pond, reaching toward the sky as though part of a fiendish plot to snag wayward shots. "I tell the players we have great sales at the pro shop," says course superintendent Mike Papineau in joking reference to the fact that golf courses resell the balls they find in hazards.

The grant also will cover workers in California, New York, Washington and the District of Columbia. Separately, the Associated Builders and Contractors announced it has received a $90,000 grant from the Turner Foundation in Atlanta to help provide training in green building and sustainability practices.

Baker, resign, isn't the team spirit they'd hope for as green organizations rally for vital federal clean water legislation in 2010. Mr. Ernst, a Naval Academy professor and author of the new book, "Fight for the Bay," may be the skunk at the garden party, but from bad oysters to gas leaks, we ignore unpleasant odors at our peril.
