I covered “A Run Through Redlands” Sunday, April 18, and it was a happening. For something that only sorta happened, that is.

Harold Strauss’s players bunched together like they were peeking at risqué pictures. His offenses with their wild maneuverings induced opponents to jump offside. His team’s jersey numbers were so hard to read they prompted sportswriters to curse.

There weren’t many fans. No band played. And the Aquinas High football team lost its season opener 24-14 to visiting Lancaster Paraclete.

Touching down at Ontario International Airport in the summer of 1992, my first stop en route to a job interview at the Victorville newspaper was at a convenience store. There I noticed for sale all the newspapers in the area. I didn’t know I’d someday work at most of them.

My assignment to cover this area concludes this week. Retirement’s on tap, but I don’t think I’ll ever forget covering these digs. Lots of stuff going on. To my way of thinking, for every story I’ve written, there’s a dozen, or more, that go unwritten. Can’t do ’em all, I’ve always said.

I feel bad for young kids trying to play quarterback. From this point forward: How’s anyone going to ever achieve what that man in Tampa Bay has done over the past two decades? Best anyone can hope for is to shoot for second best — Montana, Elway, Favre, Rodgers, Brees, Roethlisberger, the M…

If you have ever heard a bird making a high-pitched short whistle in the brush in our local parks, like Aurantia Park in Highland, chances are you are hearing our state bird calling to one another. The California quail is the state of bird for the Golden State.

When I was 8 years old, I got my first camera for Christmas — a treasured point-and-shoot film camera. My favorite uncle gave me my first photo lesson the next month as he and my parents prepared to embark on a vacation flight to Bimini in the Bahamas. Uncle Les worked as a photographer and …

I couldn’t take it anymore. Had to get away. Where they’re playing real high school sports. Honestly, the last live event I covered for any newspaper was a BMX state qualifier over in Yucaipa ⎯ back in July.

First of all, longtime San Gorgonio High baseball coach Bill Eatinger should definitely un-retire. The recently retired Spartans’ coach has incredibly too much time on his hands now that he’s out of the education business. That includes coaching.

Yes, we lost the Indianapolis 500 from Memorial Day weekend, but we also lost something else from that Memorial Day time frame. The San Bernardino County Amateur Golf Championship, which was a nice little prize for area golfers to shoot for over a three-day period, is now off the horizon.

Driving the city. Highland. What’s going on out there? At a standstill. Not many good sports notes, though. No baseball at the Little League compounds. Fall high school sports are out. It’s a virtual zero summer.
