Garden Gate: Add boron to list of top nutrients
The large hole in the ground looked like a giant coliseum. At least that’s what came to mind as I peered into California’s largest open-pit mine, the Rio Tinto Boron Mine.

With a boisterous Kodiak crowd and the game on the line, Kenai’s Luke Beiser didn’t even flinch.

She didn’t fill the scoresheet with spares or strikes. “About the only fault we find is her bowling skills need some improving,” Olympic track coach Dan Dittmer wrote in an email. Walker did impress Dittmer with he...
