Picking Oscar nominees a successful challenge

Wednesday, January 15, 2020 by The Press in Focus

I don’t run cross country (as I did as a teen on the team at Southern Lehigh High School; badly, but I finished the races).

I don’t skateboard (as I did with my buddies down Main Street, Coopersburg, in a Halloween Parade back in the 1960s).

I don’t compete in demolition derbies (as I did twice at the Allentown Fair, first for an article for the Bethlehem Globe-Times and then for The Morning Call; in the second derby, I won Judge’s Choice).

What do you do at age 69 on the cusp of 70 (May 17) to challenge oneself?
