TimeOut with Tambo: RHS to face some new opponents after conference re-leagues

Tambo.50x35

The North County Conference will re-league for next year and Ramona will be in the Valley League in every sport but football.

The Valley League from 2014 to 2016 will be comprised of these members: Ramona, Orange Glen, Fallbrook, Valley Center, San Pasqual and Escondido. Not a bad fit for the Bulldogs in many ways. Travel will be easy as far as Orange Glen, San Pasqual and Escondido are concerned. Fallbrook is a trip, as is Valley Center. Both beat rides to the coast where Ramona has been in leagues with Oceanside, El Camino, Torrey Pines, La Costa Canyon and San Dieguito.

Ramona’s Trainer: ‘The Cycle’

RT_Title

Everyone wants results and they want them fast.

Those in the best shape of their lives aren’t all born with fast metabolisms and superior genetics. They are no different from you and me from a physiological standpoint, but they do differ in their habits and practices.

I often hear people say they wish they had that drive for fitness and health. I believe they do. They just need to tap into “The Cycle.”

Romance and risk taking

mr marketing.50x35

By Rob Weinberg Scott and Fran were together throughout my high school career. They just “worked” as a couple, and everyone assumed they’d be a lifelong success. After graduation they went to separate colleges but kept connecting and sparking. There was true love there, and everyone looked forward to them living happily ever after. Over [...]

Desert season is not just for off-roaders

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California. It is approximately 660,000 acres and provides 500 miles of dirt roads, 12 wilderness areas and many miles of hiking and riding trails.

It also provides visitors with an unparalleled opportunity to experience the wonders of the California desert.

TimeOut with Tambo: Super Bowl Sunday

Tambo.50x35

I had reservations about mentioning the Super Bowl in this column.

TimeOut is usually dedicated to topics that are sports-related. One of the major themes of TimeOut is that sports are a microcosm of society. However, in the case of the Super Bowl, society tries to be a microcosm of the Super Bowl and every element of society gets involved.

Ramona’s Trainer: Blessed are those who share the Gospel of Fitness

RT_Title

This is a two-way street. If you are a fitness believer, share it with those around you, and if you’re not and know someone who is, get in there are be a part of what they are doing.

Fitness and healthy living are a choice. We are not genetically inclined toward living healthy. In fact, I would say it is the complete opposite. We are inclined to always take the path of least resistance. Just as water flowing down hill naturally chooses the path and terrain that is easiest to traverse, so do we. For these aforementioned reasons, we MUST team up with others to succeed.

TimeOut with Tambo: Strategizing basketball games

Tambo.50x35

The basketball tournament season is over. The only tournament that really matters will commence at the end of the regular season.

Cross-league games, which are arranged to make money and keep the money in the North County, are done. Having the girls varsity and boys varsity play opposite sites on the same night actually hurts the gate in most cases. However, when the boys freshman, junior varsity and varsity teams all traveled in the same bus to a game, Ramona had a built-in crowd and, according to boys’ varsity coach David Reichner, that was a big factor in his victory over Mt. Carmel.
