A winner in the printmaking/drawing/ book arts category, he joined other grantees at a NYFA reception at the Bubble Lounge in NYC. John has an MFA from SUNY-Albany. In June John “Bones” Rodriguez self- published a new book, Half-Assed Health: How to Look Good Naked Without Starving, Suffering, or Surgery. Check out an excerpt at half-assedhealth.com. Bones knows that readers will not hit the gym daily, run marathons, or pass up cheeseburgers, he says, “so why get some 300-page book to tell you all the stuff that you’re not going to do anyway?” He bases this guide to health and fitness on his own extensive reading on the subject. In September Maria Nero Morin was inducted into the Skidmore Athletics Hall of Fame. The softball MVP and captain helped transform the team from a fledg- ling varsity squad into a major conference competitor in 1992, and as a senior she led the team to its first 20-win season. As head softball coach at Rhode Island College, she has guided her teams to five conference titles, two Division III champi- onships, and two College World Series berths. Maria has been her conference’s Coach of the Year three times and Divis - ion III New England Coach of the Year twice. I enjoyed meeting NYC-area alumni on


a tour of Central Park in September. There were more than 30 attendees, including Adam Wald, and it was great to get better acquainted with the park and with fellow Skiddies. VICKI TISCH 330 WEST 56TH STREET, #2B NEW YORK, NY 10019 VICKITISCH@YAHOO.COM
