Apparently, They Don’t Know Damian Lillard In Minnesota

Here’s an odd item that appeared in a wire story from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune: MINNEAPOLIS – As a smiling Shabazz Muhammad stood on the Target Center stage Friday clutching his No. “0″ Timberwolves jersey — a number he selected because nobody else in the NBA wears it — the guy who thrives on being the […]

Business and Pleasure

This week I am working with the WSU STEM-LIT program to prepare for an exciting program to be used at our school to incorporate more project-based learning in the classroom.  In preparation for a workshop with students in August, teachers are getting our hands on the materials, literally and figuratively, to make the magic happen.  […]

Greatest Hits: Bill Walton And The Draft

With the NBA Draft on the schedule for tonight, it reminded me of when the Blazers had the No. 1 pick in 2007. I tracked down Bill Walton, a former No. 1 pick, to talk about how the draft had changed over three decades: Originally published in The Columbian on June 27, 2007: Thirty-three years […]

Greatest Hits: In Honor Of Father’s Day

With Father’s Day upon us, I thought it would be appropriate to share what I wrote after my dad died in 2009: This is a column I never wanted to write, but knew that someday I would. Roger Alan Jayne — coach, friend, mentor, role model, and all-around good guy — died Wednesday. He was […]

Greatest Hits: Heidland Finds Meaning

With my tenure in Sports nearing an end, I figure it’s time for a Greatest Hits tour. Why? Well, why not? I’ll re-read these columns, even if nobody else wants to.

A pepper for your thoughts

Is there really any wrong way to serve these? Bell Peppers can be grilled, baked, sauteed or just eaten raw! You can dunk them in hummus, mix them in a pork stir fry, dice them with eggs or lay them over a grilled chicken salad. The point is they are honest to goodness one of […]

Drum roll please: “Ooooo – wipe-out!” A surf dog’s first hang 20 attempt

Doodle’s big adventure is a surfin’ safari – he’s a surf dog wanna-be. This is a Vancouver/Columbia Gorge surf doxie in training – last seen riding a carry on bag out of PDX, bound for Southern California. Doodle’s surfin’ safari led him away from the coast- to the CA/AZ desert, for river surfing… behind a ski boat… on the Colorado River. And, well, it’s a good thing […]
