Small school football: Kodiaks to take on Leopards

The Cascade football team upended the Quincy in its first game of the season, but will take on a much different beast when it travels south of Yakima to take on Zillah tonight at Andy Collins Memorial Field. The Leopards went undefeated in regular season play last season before being upset by Royal, the loss being enough to strip the Leopards of a postseason berth. The Leopards avenged their late season loss on River View in week one of the 2014 campaign, picking up a 19-14 victory.

Local cyclist takes 4th place at velodrome nationals

Racing around steeply banked turns at nearly 30 miles per hour on a bicycle without brakes could turn some people away from the extreme sport of velodrome. Usually raced indoors, two bicyclists will start on opposite sides of the 400-meter track and start at the same time, quickly gaining speed.

Dream golf: A book report

Author’s note: It’s been nearly 50 years since my last book report, back to the 10th grade, I think. I still remember struggling over writing something halfway intelligent about “Catcher In The Rye” by J.D. Salinger — Holden Caulfield coming of age and dealing with angst and alienation that many 15-year-old high school kids were expected to relate to. I think I remember getting a C on the paper, so use that letter grade as a measuring stick for what you are about to read. Thanks.)
