  • Hitting the Wall

    Vicki Sternfeld-Rossi, The Times|Oct 12, 2023

    “Hitting the wall” is an expression runners use when they have exhausted themselves and can go no further. Over the years, I’ve heard this expression used for other situations; in my case, it’s work. I have “hit the wall” and written and plan to submit my resignation letter, effective December 31, 2023. Despite fears that my brain will turn to mush, I’ll be bored, have nothing to do, or will eat myself into oblivion. I am ready – I think! I remember when my father announced we were moving fro...

Meserve is joined by junior Tyler Shafer, who has never before competed in X-C and three freshmen: Kyle Gradwohl, Jared Farley, and Skylar Woo... Full story

  • Artichoke White Lasagna

    Luke Chavez, The Times|Oct 12, 2023

    When it comes to satisfying casserole dinners, bubbling in the oven, few are as popular as lasagna. Over the years, I have collected many variations on this homey favorite, from vegetarian delights to meaty classics. While traditional red sauce is usually what comes to mind first, lasagna can also be layered with pesto, or as in this recipe, with a creamy white sauce. Filled with mushrooms, artichokes, and spinach, this lovely version is perfect for a cozy family meal, or for a memorable dinner...
