Originally from Southern California, Brent Davis never thought of ever settling down in Bakersfield, a move from sunny beaches to the "Dust Bowl." "This town is great except for the air quality.

When Kathy Moretti goes to work, it is more as if she is going to see family. That is how she sees the Adaptive Physical Education Program. The program is designed for students with physical disabilities, but about 20 percent of those who enroll in the class can be non disabled students who just want an individualized program. Assistants Jake Davis and Mandy Drath help the...

Bob Covey has been at it for quite a while. This year marks his 41st at Bakersfield College as health instructor and head coach of men's track and cross country. It's not that there haven't been plenty of opportunities to go elsewhere. Over the years, several Division I schools came calling with offers to take over their prestigious programs. He turned them all down. Now,...

Cross Country Season

Coach Bob Covey knows why this men's cross-country season hasn't been as successful as the last. It's no mystery. Four of his top five runners did not return, three due to ineligibility and one, his best runner, because of personal issues. With those runners, last year's team placed second out of 13 in the league championships and went on to place ninth in the state meet. This...

Pain can be a wonderful thing. Standing at the starting line of Volkslauf 2003, my worries about going back to school and how I was going to pay for it faded. It was the kind of distraction that makes you forget about bigger problems because there is a more immediate one staring you in the face. Kind of like a soothing toothache. True, many people think a toothache is just...
