We are in a time of our lives where we are experiencing unprecedented violence and total disrespect for others, authority and property. Let’s not have any of this, with tempers flaring out of control, anywhere on or around the golf course. Golf should be a fun and safe haven for all.
Where do you hike when two routes to the Grand Canyon are closed due to fires?
Last year the game of tennis’ normal inductions and professional lawn tennis tournament was cancelled at the Newport R.I. International Tennis Hall of Fame due to COVID, but this year are excited and ready for a large, fun crowd to attend — Sunday, July 11, to Sunday, July 18, 2021, for the men’s singles and doubles tournament and induction ceremony and special festivities to enjoy!
Two weeks ago, we discussed some common courtesies that, as golfers, we should be aware of and apply to make the game of golf better for everyone. Just like before, common courtesies are like common sense. Way too often, it is not common!
Canyonlands is complicated. You only need to glance at a map to figure that out (https://www.nps.gov/cany/planyourvisit/maps.htm).
Recently I received an email from a former Prescottonian who is probably the best-known tennis athlete we can claim as ours, Taylor Johnson, who is currently playing for UCLA, which just finished its season, reaching 4th in the country. They won the Pac-12 regular season and made the NCAA’s Elite 8.

The phone rang at my library in Spring Valley. The caller asked, “Do you know anyone who could train us on reading a topographic map and using an orienteering compass with a little GPS info thrown in for good measure?”
Last month, the NCAA Board of Governors voted to extend President Mark Emmert’s contract through Dec. 31, 2025.

With COVID-19, our young people have suffered a lot during this past year with lockdowns, Zoom classrooms, canceled sports and social activities, etc. The setbacks they have endured can be life-changing but luckily a golf course is a safe haven.
When asked why anyone would want to work at the Cline Library in Flagstaff, the interviewer responded by saying, “Because the best hiking in Arizona is nearby.”
Like the teams they represent, MLB’s labor pool is populated by the haves and have nots, and we don’t mean talent.
He called it his favorite hike. Really? That’s quite a claim. He would rather hike Woodchute Trail 102 than any other route, at least in Yavapai County. His hiking experience did not extend much beyond local trails, yet that’s notable recognition for a trail perched above Jerome and Highway 89A.
Buckskin Mountain State Park lies at the north end of the Buckskin Mountains. I discussed the south end in February when I hiked in the vicinity of Gibraltar Mountain.
Many of you know I’m in the middle of a bike ride across the country, promoting tennis and biking, going from San Diego, California, to St. Augustine, Florida.
