Running commentary
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.

Group encourages Sisters to 'Go Fish'
A decade ago, Gary Kutz and his wife, Cookie, moved to Sisters from California after careers building and managing retirement facilities. A dedicated angler, the many outstanding fishing opportunities in Sisters Country offered a major reason drawing Kutz here.

On the trail of movie history in Sedona
Right now, it's kind of a "shoulder" season for hiking in our area, when the high mountains may not be the best choice and other possibilities come to mind. For more than a few residents of Sisters Country, however, those "other possibilities" might include giving some thought to warmer and sunnier climes to the south. One of the most popular southern destinations is Arizona; and, as far as my wife and I are concerned, there is no better place than Sedona.
