  • Carnett: Memorable players and an old pal

    Does anyone remember a brash young sportswriter by the name of John Sevano, who ruled these pages in the late 1970s? I sure do. He died recently in Medford, Ore., at 60. What a loss. I hadn't seen John in decades, but I hadn't forgotten him either....

    Virgen: Abbott keeps inspiring

    Happy New Year! Kosher Claus has returned to his secret lair until next Christmas/Chanukah season, the decorations are coming down, but there are plenty of inspirational memories from the year of sports in 2011. The New Year affords the opportunity to...
  • Mesa Musings: 2012 could be disastrous or best year yet

    The last float of the 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade has exited Colorado Boulevard. 2012 has arrived! What doth the new year bring? A few years back, I looked at 2012 with trepidation. Staring a root canal in the face was infinitely more appealing...
