This week was quite a busy week. I flew about 3 or 4 days. The other days I was in the office. The weather lately has been beautiful! It has been above 60 all last week, and this week it's supposed to be in the high 70s. I've started running around the base. The mountains surrounding the base are absolutely amazing. I love running and staring at the mountains, it clears my mind. On Sunday a whole group of us played Kan Jam. The game Kan Jam is played throwing a frisbee into a can at the other end. Bre and I were partners and we were pretty good. We won one game and lost the other, but we will be the champions next week if we don't fly. We will start playing that every Sunday if we don't have a mission. I hope you all are having beautiful weather! Reese Jansen drives to the hoop during the second half against Kimball. The Eagles would defeat the Cubs Feb. 19. Staffphoto by Marguerite Laabs.

It was an impressive BBE second-half run, who outscored EV-W 40-29, fol- lowing a 14-point halftime deficit, but it was too little too late as the Eagles turned up the defense and were able to close the door. us on 000 Senior Travis Thielen puts up 2 points against Holdingford, and he makes it look so easy.
