Winchester, Matthiessen memorable voices

Thursday, April 17, 2014
Jesse Winchester, who died last week, made music that was rooted deep in America’s southland, but he escaped the Vietnam-era draft, fleeing to Montreal. Years later, he escaped from the music business; later comebacks brought him here periodically.

With the turkey season just around the corner, I thought I’d lead off this year’s Turkey Tales with my hunt for an Osceola turkey last month in Florida.

No apartment bubble, just high demand

It's all a matter of timing

Shayne Gostisbehere had one more sweet move, and will haunt Messa Rink no more.
The defenseman who dazzled the Minnesota Golden Gophers with an array of deft skating skill and legerdemain with his stick on Saturday pulled the plug on his Union College career on Tuesday.
It was time.

Now, the real work begins

Monday, April 14, 2014
The immediate impact of the Union College hockey team’s national championship was readily apparent on Sunday.
You could hear it in head coach Rick Bennett’s voice and see it in the players’ scruffy appearance.
Saturday was not a night for curfews.

Amazing season for Union

Sunday, April 13, 2014
Wait. Really? REALLY? You hunt and peck for the keys, and "Union College" and "national champions" should not, by any semblance of logic, under any definition of the natural order of things, tumble together in that sequence. But there it is. The Union College Dutchmen are the national champions of Division I college hockey.

Next up: Hockey royalty

Final update on my cheesesteak quest: abject failure.
Due to schedule constraints, it looks like I won’t be making it to Geno’s Steaks nor Pat’s King of Steaks.
Appearances to the contrary, this is a column about the University of Minnesota hockey.

Wolf tale from 1968 — ahead of its time?

Gregory nears perfection

Friday, April 11, 2014
Scott Gregory often flies under the radar in the high-powered DV Greco Insurance City League Monday nights at Towne Bowling Academy. But he leapt to the front of the pack earlier this week as he toyed with perfection and was just a few shots short of a 900 triple.

Dutchmen combine to pick up a teammate

Friday, April 11, 2014
Even through who knows how many walls and layers of insulation and plumbing in the gigantic building, Matt Hatch could hear the oohs and aahs from the crowd. It was horrible. It was beautiful. It was excruciating. It was glorious. While Hatch was sitting in the locker room, hearing reactions to God knows what because the TV feed there was on tape delay, the Union hockey team played exquisite defense on a potentially crippling five-minute power play by Boston College in the third period on Thursday

VSI embracing Time-for-Nine theme

Friday, April 11, 2014
Time is of the essence.
We all know that the game we love has a few drawbacks, and one of the major ones is the time it takes to play 18 holes. Most of us just don’t have more than five hours to labor through a full round, especially if it’s a couple of times a week.

'Rocky II' fits this trip

Thursday, April 10, 2014
OK, it’s really not a good sign, two days before the national semifinals, for the Union College hockey team to be tuning out the coach.
