Christian Fuller reaches his Mammoth endgame

May 6, 2011

Christian Fuller has been in town for only a year.

Yet, he has made a lasting impression on many.

He’s a runner. He has coached young runners and entered races.

He has also introduced chess to people who never had thought of the game before.

He enjoys talking about the similarities between chess and running, and how chess, because it teaches concentration, can improve running.

“It can also improve one’s math understanding and performance, as well as reading,” Fuller said.

And, it might be said to improve life skills.

The ski bum is dead, long live the ski bum

October 1, 2010

We’ve known quite a few ski bums in our time around here. If you think about it, Dave McCoy himself would probably been called a ski bum, had the term or the lifestyle existed at the time. Maybe Dave was the original ski bum, for all we know.

Those were heady times for us back then, when the ski towns were being built and the ski bum subculture emerged. Look around town and they’re everywhere still, each finding just enough work to free them to lay down some serious skiing and snowboarding in the winter.

Jack Laws, Sierra Field Guide author, artist at Booky Joint

September 24, 2010

It’ll be some kind of book signing Saturday afternoon, Sept. 25, at the Booky Joint, where John Muir “Jack” Laws not only will sign his swell new guidebook, but also will offer some artistic demonstrations.

Laws will sprinkle how-to demos in illustration, painting and sketching at the event, which starts at one o’clock and ends at 3.
