Facing up to aging as an athlete — but not giving up

Posted on October 15, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Andy Aging Athlete Andy Kirkaldy and Peter Quinn CMYK.jpg

Our elliptical machine talks to me all the time.

It just doesn’t sit in the corner of the family room while I do my best to ignore it.

“I’m here,” the elliptical tells me. “I’m waiting. It’s only a matter of time. You’ll see. It will be you and me and tai chi.”

First Man.jpg

First Man — Running Time: 2:18 — Rating: PG-13

“First Man,” the story of Neil Armstrong’s successful moon landing, is both a technical triumph and a deeply personal portrait of a couple. The degree of your enthusiasm for it will probably be determined by your interest in the subject itself. If you have no interest in the moon landing you may feel lukewarm because the film is focused entirely on the people and the feat.

Two will be available as handouts at public hearings; the third will be provided to non-lawyers who have been granted party status in cases with an evidentiary hearing.
