The Training Corner

Q: Hi Pat! Meet Mindy, the train wreck. When I read your columns, I think “Come on, Mindy, get your act together. You’re only 42 years old.” I have so many issues that I don’t know where to start. I am borderline on everything; BP, lipids, inflammation, glucose and A1c, that diabetes thing.

Halftime revival

The Lone Peak Varsity Big Horns home basketball games against White Sulphur Springs Hornets on Jan. 26 showed the Big Horns’ mettle. It was a closely contested game for the boys during the first half, but the Big Horns surged ahead after a halftime rally.

Sinking the threes

Lone Peak Varsity Big Horns and Lady Big Horns battled this weekend, their first solid introduction to the season after coming out of quarantine. Jackson Lang landed a school record for three pointers when the team faced Twin Bridges, landing seven in the game and helping keep the Big Horns in step with the Falcons.

Training for the Long Haul

Q: About that health-span idea …. My take is that death is part of life. When my number is up, it’s up. I cannot buy into the unrelenting message of manic self-care in the pursuit of health, guaranteed safety [no such thing], and a 100-year lifespan as my sole purpose in life.

Teams under quarantine

Lone Peak High School (LPHS) Lady Bighorns Junior Varsity basketball games have been canceled for the remainder of the season. COVID-19 has proven a headache for early season athletics. Harrison/Willow Creek and Lima games were canceled due to the team being under quarantine. The Jan. 9 match against Ennis is being rescheduled.

Q: I’m done with New Year’s Resolutions. 2021 is here, and I am full of optimism. However, I am in the same predicament that I have been in for the last 20 years. I resolve to lose 15 pounds and exercise more. I go all-out for the month of January with strict dieting and five workouts per week.

Determined despite delay

COVID-19 has surfaced as an early obstacle of the 2021 Lady Bighorns Basketball season. Several critical practices were cancelled and the first game will need to be rescheduled due to a positive test result on the team, head coach Taylor Cummings explained.

Primed for the season

Lone Peak High School (LPHS) Varsity Bighorns Basketball seniors Michael Romney, Nolan Schumacher, Mickey Botha and Jackson Lang and junior Tony Brewster will be instrumental for the 2021 season, according to coach and LPHS Athletic Director John Hannahs.

The Training Corner

Q: The Holiday stretch … Over the past year, I have lost 25 pounds, and have kept it off since September. I quit eating the 5 C’s of chips, cookies-cakes, candy, colas [sodas], creams [dips, ice cream], and shifted towards a Mediterranean style of eating.
