Educating veterans

Since 9/11, many active-duty, Reserve and veteran military members have faced challenges in pursuing their educational goals. Pierce College, a two-year college with campuses in Lakewood, Puyallup, and an extension on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, has emerged as the Nation's most friendly community college for its work with servicemembers.

Staff Sgt. Carlos Delgado gave Patrick Bowman an occasional helping hand and loads of words of encouragement as Bowman wheeled his blue Top End racing wheelchair over a 100-yard course.

Fall motorcycle rides

The yellow lines on his map that marked the routes Gino Moroni has ridden his motorcycle across the state, told the story. Perched on his bike, he's been there, seen that. "I've done all this yellow stuff," Moroni said with a grin, pointing to his map highlighted with yellow lines. There's a lot
