15-year-old graduates from UC Irvine, eyes medical school

When Kylie Munson first started college, her mom would walk her to the classrooms at Los Angeles Mission College, then wait, patiently, outside on a bench until she finished. She was 11 at the time, taking classes with peers much older – ones who could at least drive themselves to school. Munson, now 15, walked the stage at UC Irvine last week, clad in cap and gown to collect her undergraduate diploma. The Santa Clarita native studied biological sciences, and sees more education in her future, h...

Not even Clara Voyant could have foreseen KFWB connection to Pomona

A stray mention in my Feb. 14 column of a classic-era KFWB disc jockey prompted a note from reader Bob Watson of Upland, who first off gently corrected my spelling. Or rather, as he said, my transcription of the spelling from a 1959 student newspaper article, which was wrong. The DJ’s name was Elliot Field, not Fields. Sorry about that. Regardless, Watson said seeing the name “brought back memories of countless hours after school” in the San Fernando Valley, listening with his best friend to Fie...

Childhood pal recalls Ritchie Valens as ‘sweet,’ ‘tough’ from Murrieta home

Bob Munson got in touch to tell me that he and Ritchie Valens had been pals back in junior high. Not only did Munson have stories, he had photos. Days later, I was in Munson’s kitchen in the Murrieta Hot Springs neighborhood of Murrieta, looking at snapshots. There was Valens in a dark suit for eighth grade prom at Pacoima Junior High, standing behind a girl in a dress, arms around her waist from behind. In fact, there were three similar photos, with three different girls. “Ritchie had no proble...

Minnesota Holds Off Notre Dame to Extend Their Season

Photo by Richard T Gagnon/Getty Images MINNEAPOLIS – It’s been a brilliant second half of the season for Minnesota, but it was nearly all for naught after a horrendous effort in Game 1 of their Big Ten quarterfinal series. Facing elimination, Minnesota started fast and finished strong on Saturday night to put it behind them and guarantee one last game on home ice for their seniors. An early goal by Ryan Zuhlsdorf gave the 19th-ranked Golden Gophers a jump they desperately needed, and they...

"Why Is the Chief Justice of Ohio's Supreme Court Lobbying Against Sentencing Reforms?"

The question in the title of this post is the headline of this Reason commentary from a few weeks ago that I just came across today. Here are excerpts from a piece worth reading in full: Ohio lawmakers trying to pass sentencing reforms have faced opposition this year from the usual suspects, such as lobbyists for prosecutors and law enforcement. But they've also run into vocal criticism from an unexpected source: Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor. It is unusual — and it may dama...

"Advise and consent" or "advice and consent"?

Which is it? I'm hearing "advice and consent" — the nouns — but I write "advise and consent" — the verbs. I prefer the sound of "the Senate's advise-and-consent role" (which I wrote here and here). Kavanaugh, testifying, told the Senators, "You have replaced ‘advice and consent’ with search and destroy." He said "advice," even at the cost of losing parallelism. "Search and destroy" are verbs. If nouns and not verbs are called for, he should have said "You have replaced ‘advice and consent’ with ...

Michigan Tech Wins Overtime Thriller to Advance to WCHA Final

Part of the glory of overtime hockey is how quickly so much can change in so little time. With just a hair more than five minutes remaining in the first overtime of a 1-1 tie, Minnesota State’s Dallas Gerads picked up a loose puck in the Michigan Tech zone along the right boards and headed towards the net. Gerads cut back around a Michigan Tech defender towards the slot. With Michigan Tech goalie Packy Munson down on the ice, it appeared Gerads would have an empty net to shoot at and Mich...

Upgrading Your Barn Find, Part 2

When we found our 1946 Chevy pickup it had spent plenty of time languishing in a barn, only to be recently discovered by Scott Roth, co-owner of The Auto Shoppe in South Burlington, Vermont. Covered in dust and cobwebs, the truck had laid dormant on flat tires for decades after serving its original owners well as a work vehicle. Laying out a plan to give it a new life yet retain all of its patina’d glory is a cool undertaking and very budget conscious. We got started last month by evaluating and...

Icebreaker: Michigan Tech Upsets Minnesota Duluth for the Title

DULUTH – Michigan Tech first-year head coach Joe Shawhan couldn’t ask for a better start to his tenure in Houghton. A season-opening loss far in the rearview mirror now, the Huskies gave their new head coach two victories and a tournament title to boot at AMSOIL Arena this weekend. Michigan Tech overcame a rough start, riding three power play goals and a stellar performance from Patrick Munson to upset No. 6 Minnesota-Duluth 4-3 on Saturday night to win the Ice Breaker championship. “It wa...

Icebreaker Semifinal: Michigan Tech Gets Offense from D to Beat Union

DULUTH – Returning to the NCAA tournament for the second time in three years is good for Michigan Tech, but they aren’t anywhere close to satisfied until they achieve bigger goals. A nonconference win over No. 16 Union is a good start, especially to kick off a new coaching regime. The Huskies, fresh off a 3-2 loss at Wisconsin on Sunday to open their season, put that behind them quickly and rode an early scoring barrage to a 6-3 victory over the Dutchmen in the first Ice Breaker semifinal ...

Packy Munson to Michigan Tech

Former Vermont/Denver goalie Packy Munson will be enrolling at Michigan Tech this season, and will be eligible to play immediately for the Huskies. Munson had transferred from Vermont, where he posted respectable .920/2.37 stats with a 9-10-1 record as a rookie for the Catamounts to the University of Denver. But after sitting out last season as a transfer, Munson and Denver mutually parted ways this summer with the Pioneers returning Richter Award winner Tanner Jaillet and bringing in hig...

Saddleback Leather Thin Front Pocket Backpack review
