In adaptive sports, wheels aren’t relegated to just race cars

Born with spina bifida, a developmental disorder affecting the spinal cord, Steve Morales never imagined a life playing sports. Now 28, he aggressively races down the court as he dribbles the basketball just out of his opponent’s reach.

BOB MORRIS: Picking pomegranates a test of patience

Question: We are new to raising pomegranates. We have been watering them and have cut off most of the suckers but need to know when they should be ready to be picked.

DEBORAH WALL: Grand Canyon’s North Rim a step above

If a visit to the Grand Canyon National Park is on your summer schedule, I recommend heading to the canyon’s North Rim rather than the better-known and thus more crowded South Rim.

Nevada’s only national park, it offers plenty to do.

Tending golf turf takes attention to detail

It’s 4:30 in the morning, and I’m at Angel Park Golf Club, 100 S. Rampart Blvd. It’s dark outside, but there’s a hubbub of activity. There’s an associate mowing the practice green, a kitchen worker heading toward the restaurant, a staff member using a blower to clear the main concourse to the clubhouse and equipment is buzzing everywhere. There are sprinklers watering the course.
