SportsSkyline’s Alex Appel preserves shutout victory
Don Braman has a conundrum most soccer coaches would love to have — three quality goalkeepers and only one starting spot.
Senior Jack O’Keefe and junior Brice Escobar are the most experienced players fighting for time, but sophomore Alex Appel has been just as good during the Skyline Spartans’ nine-game unbeaten streak to start the season.
Appel came in for the second half and made three crucial saves in the last 15 minutes, helping Skyline beat the visiting Roosevelt Roughriders, 1-0, in Class 4A KingCo Conference boys soccer action April 7.
SchoolsThoughts about ‘my husband’s stupid record collection’

I recently read an article on Jezebel about female music writers and women in the music industry in general.
The article focused on a blog run by a woman named Sarah O’Holla, called “My Husband’s Stupid Record Collection.” The blog has brought up a great amount of discussion among the music and feminist communities in the past few weeks.
Why is it such a point of interest? Well, O’Holla’s blog is based on the idea of her exploring her husband’s expansive record collection and writing stream-of-consciousness reviews from the point of view of a person not immersed in the music industry.
