  • May 31, 2008 at 3:00PM updated Jun 3, 2008 at 3:41PM

Ruby Roberts has made a habit out of physically assaulting running tracks throughout the state. Her latest victim, the Mount Tahoma High School’s track in Tahoma, fared no better than victims past.

During May 24’s 2A state track meet, she surpassed her own expectations with a jaw-dropping 1600-meter time of 4:59.76. She ran an entire mile in just a shade under five minutes.

I delved into the American Medical Association’s Family Medical Guide, where I learned I was sporting what’s called a pre-cancerous skin spot caused by over exposure to the sun many years ago.

  • Jun 4, 2008 at 3:00PM

The African Safari must be empty because all the animals have migrated to Kingston. Their new homing ground: brand-new business TJ’s Hotrods — so new, the official opening day is this Friday.
