ASPIRE helps students plan for future
Tuesday, December 4, 2018
For many of us, fall means experiencing cool, crisp mornings, raking leaves, and preparing for the coming holidays. However, for high school seniors (and their parents), fall can inspire feelings of uncertainty and apprehension as students start feeling the crush of writing college application essays, scheduling SAT tests, investigating post-high-school possibilities, and figuring out a way to pay for it all.

Girls basketball has rough week on the hardwood
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
The Outlaws girls basketball squad played a tight game at Elmira on Tuesday, December 4, but just couldn't pull off the win, and had to record the 34-29 loss to the Falcons. Two days later, they suffered a 52-36 loss at home to La Pine.

On Tuesday, Sisters got off to a great start and at the close of the first period held an 11-6 lead. The Falcons chipped away the Outlaws lead in the second quarter and took the lead, but Isabelle Spitler hit a critical three-pointer at the buzzer to end the first half and put the Outlaws on top 19-18.

Running commentary
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
Winter weather has descended on Sisters Country, which can make outdoor running a challenge when things get icy and slick. Cold temperatures and long, dark nights can make staying in your cozy bed quite attractive - as opposed to putting on your winter running gear and heading out the door. A little extra motivation through some goal-setting and race planning always seems to help me through this season.

Healthy holiday eats
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
It's easy to get swept up in the holiday season. By eating just 200 extra calories a day - a piece of pecan pie and a cup of eggnog here, a couple pumpkin pancakes and some butter cookies there - you could pack on a couple of pounds by the New Year.
The power of connection
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
The holiday season can be a mixed bag of emotions. In the best case, it is filled with joy and merriment; however, feelings of grief, stress, and loneliness are also common. In either case, what makes the season most meaningful for most of us is celebrating the connections we share with those we love.
Exercise beats back the winter blues
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
Winter is here.

Short days, and dark mornings mean less sunlight. Cold temps mean getting outdoors is a chore, requiring layers, coverage, trying to stay warm. Roads are littered with ice, cinders, and compromised shoulders. Rivers and lakes are not an option. Much of our beautiful hikes and treks are stifled in snow.
