Difference between personal mission and passion
Here’s my reaction to Betty MacTavish’s letter to the editor (March 18) about SB-1: 1. Personal mission and passion: Personal mission is using position or power to change something you don't like.

In heaven, everyone gets to the big leagues
Coming to you from Surprise, Arizona in the midst of a Brewers 8-4 rout of the Kansas City Royals, it’s Chick Priest. I did not want to leave you hanging with your spiritual questions just because it is Spring Break, so I brought along the iPad, and between innings.

Thomet’s 2-mile one of the fastest
Nearly a week after his historic performance at the New Balance High School Championships, Levi Thomet would change only one thing from that race — his move to the front. With 400 meters to go in the indoor two-mile race at the Armory building in New York City, Thomet pushed his way to the front, a move he said he should have saved until the last lap on the 200-meter track. “I really turned it on on the second to ...
