RUN the ROCK: 5-kilometer course records demolished
Jacalyn Gross didn’t hear about the KMXT-FM Run the Rock event until Friday evening. And there she was, a day later, at the Bear Valley Golf Course obliterating the women’s 5-kilometer course record. Gross finished with the speedy time of 17 minutes, 56 seconds, crushing Jaymi Bethea’s 2010 record by 55 seconds. “I missed my workout this week, so I decided I would do the 5K,” said Gross, who was the only lady to f...

Teeing Off: What to watch on TV
It’s 9 p.m. Thursday and I’m finally getting to this space. I almost blew it off and placed a wire story here, but I knew that would have disappointed Gizmo. A cranky dog is no fun to live with. I was easily distracted Thursday at work with baseball playoffs and professional and college football on the television. I did more glancing at the TV then typing. Gotta love this time of the years. My only problem was the...

TEEING OFF: Let the baseball fun begin
I interrupt your Week 4 NFL viewing to talk baseball. Sorry, but there is nothing better in the world than playoff baseball. Chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven and surprise licks to the face from Pepper Jack just don’t measure up to baseball in October. The stadium atmosphere is amped up and every pitch counts. The postseason begins Oct. 6 with the American League wild-card game. Before that game is pla...

Teeing Off: Picking better than humans
Gizmo has been unbearable to live with this week. The pup has been parading around the apartment like he owns the place. He even put his brother, Pepper Jack, in time out for running off — thank you neighbor down the street for corralling him for me. That dog runs fast. Marcus Dunbar would be proud. While everybody struggled in picking NFL games last week, Gizmo made it look easy. Pup 1, Humans 0. Yes, Gizmo out-p...

Blake James had a list of three things that he was looking for when picking a college — a private school in the northwest that had a degree in pharmacy and a men’s swimming program. That is how James, a Kodiak High School product, ended up at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington. He will make his collegiate swimming debut on Oct. 3 in the school’s alumni meet. “I went down there in January and really loved ...
