Is it worth getting excited about Brady going to Bucs?


View one: by Greg Little You’d think a guy like me would have nothing but praise for a guy like Tom Brady. Being an Indianapolis Colts fan, you’d think I would be reminiscing about how Peyton Manning left the Colts and went on to win a Super Bowl with the Broncos in his golden years as a player. But let’s […]

Give a Spartan race a try; you might surprise yourself


As you probably saw in a previous edition of the Gazette, a massive group from Mariposa traveled to Patterson to compete in a Spartan event on Feb. 16.
