Some of my readers may remember the columns in which I wrote about the extra-terrestrial palates and genetically enhanced taste buds of elitist wine critics who, for example, could discern “aromas of peach, lime oil, and wet stones” in a glass of pinot noir. Stand aside, wine connoisseurs, y…
One of my previous columns was a nostalgic reminiscence of my “soda jerk” years in my Uncle’s Brooklyn candy store, or more accurately, stationery store, as candy was just a few of the many items sold.

Sarah Rike, who’s bounced around playing and coaching volleyball between Beaumont, Redlands and Banning, knows her baby’s due in November. If everything aligns just perfectly, the Lady Broncos could make a serious playoff run.
I hesitate to generalize, but I can believe I can safely say that most Sun Lakers are blessed with a great and sometimes self-deprecating sense of humor. Often, our humor is based upon exaggeration, taking a real or imagined incident or practice and embellishing it.
Names have always intrigued me. Perhaps this minor obsession stems from the fact that I never liked my name when I was growing up. Marvin wasn’t “macho” enough I thought (although when I was a kid I didn’t know what “macho” meant). I wanted a tougher name like Tom or Buck the names of my fav…
Apartment buildings were, and still are the dominant domicile in the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx, while private homes dominate the landscapes of the other two boroughs, Queens and Staten Island.
There was a time when Westerns dominated the screen, the radio, and television. Occasionally, a “shoot ‘em up”, as we used to call the Westerns when I was a kid many moons ago, will crop up on the motion picture circuit bringing back memories of the earlier films which inspired the game we p…
...And also “goneth” are all the other “men” whose daily or weekly visits were a part of our lives in the cities. There was the laundryman, the milkman, the Fuller Brush man, the Insurance man, and, best of all the Good Humor man.

Almost every day, a segment on a news program, or an article in a magazine will tout a potential medical or nutritional “breakthrough” that reverses long held theories and advice. The treatment and prevention of diseases and illnesses is an evolving and ever-changing science prompted by adva…
I have often written about the outdoor games I played as a kid growing up in the concrete and asphalt jungles of New York City. I were surprised to hear from readers who grew up in similar urban areas such as Philadelphia and Chicago who told me they played the same or similar games evoking …
A handful, or so, years back I was assigned to interview a duo of State-bound wrestlers from Riverside King High School. They were headed for Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, which is the ultimate goal for any kid that hits the mat.
If you’re looking for a new head football coach, we might be able to provide an idea, or two, about the process of weening out candidates and ushering in any highly experienced and dedicated on-field educators.
Seconds before Super Bowl XXXV concluded with Baltimore set to knock out the New York Giants, 34-7, Ravens’ coach Brian Billick called the team’s water boy over and told him to empty all the water containers.
Since former Banning legend Don Pellum has been hired by Chip Kelly at UCLA, you really haven’t been treated to much news in recent weeks about Bruin football.
A few years ago wrote about the oft repeated salutation “have a good day” and some of the things, some meaningful, some trivial, that add up to a good day for me. Since that long ago column I have received dozens of well meaning “good day” wishes from friends, store clerks, bank tellers, etc…
Here’s to all the Baseball Dads, plus a few Moms, out there in anticipation for an upcoming season, either in Banning Little League or Beaumont PONY. My question is this: Why aren’t more kids turning to switch-hitting? If you’re going to do it, the earlier the better.
It has been a week now since the shopping frenzy and phenomenon known as Black Friday dominated the news with stories of mayhem and near riots by bargain hunting consumers, increased incidents of shoplifting, and generally impolite and violent behavior by normally polite and gentle folks par…
