A crowd of more than 400 watched in Embry-Riddle's ICI Center, as a video from Dellecker’s family said what words could not.The images showed a happy child who developed a passion for surfing. Though by all accounts Dellecker appeared a normal young man, those in attendance remarked on how extraordinary he was.Dellecker grew up in Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach before entering the U.S. Air Force Academy. Though new to his career as a pilot, Dellecker earned the flight’s Lieutenant of the quarter award in 2017. He also was awarded with the Air Force Commendation medal posthumously.John Spence, a family friend, shared the story of how he helped Dellecker prepare for his Air Force Academy entrance interviews.“I drilled him. I grilled him. I asked him every question I could think of. I tried to intimidate him. I tried to fluster him,” Spence said. “But he was on top of it. He was focused. He was well prepared, and at the end of it, I told him he did absolutely perfect. And then boom! There was that big Drew Dellecker smile.”Dellecker loved his family...

Mindfulness of Body PracticeThis practice offers space to experience sensations fully, openly and with awareness.1. Find a place where you can sit comfortably, settling into an upright posture — perhaps on a chair with a firm seat, with the spine self-supporting, hands on thighs. Let the body be upright, but without straining or stiffening. You can close the eyes, or have them open, perhaps letting the gaze fall downwards.
2. Open up awareness and notice sensations in the whole body. Be aware of contact — texture and temperature in parts of you touching the floor, chair, clothes, other body regions, the air around — as well as internal sensations, such as tightening, relaxing, pressure, fatigue, heat, cold, aching, and so on.
3. As best you can bring interest to pleasant and unpleasant sensations, a... (Clovis News Journal)Jun 10, 2016

Bloomington wrestling wins 2 titles at IE TOC
I’ve been coming to this tournament,” Salazar said.
Despite sending several of its top wrestlers to the Doc Buchanan Tournament in Clovis, Montclair had a good showing in the standings, and had four wrestlers reach the finals: Johnny Vargas (120), Velasco, Jose Rivera (220) and Diego Sanchez (heavyweight). But all four lost.
“Most teams would be happy with eight placers, but you’d really like to have some champions,” said Montclair assistant coach Derreck Cooper. “We know we can do better.”
San Bernardino County Championships
Grand Terrace hosted the tournament, which broke away from the IE TOC after last season. And the host school was the team champion for a tournament that had almost exclusively local schools.
Grand Terrace was followed by Etiwanda, Carter, Miller, Citrus Valley, Colton and San Gorgonio.
Nearly all of the individual champions were local as well: San Gorgonio’s Kristan Bacarra (106), Grand Terrace’s Rio Fuerte (113), Ameer Abdallah (145), Andrew Mena (220), and Anthony Vargas (heavyweight), Carter’s Wilmar Ardon (120) and Juan Heredia (152), Etiwanda’s Jacob Blandino (126) and Merrill Ortiz (138), Miller’s Miguel Flores (132), Rialto’s Ezekiel Barraza (170) and Shuker Flowers (182), and Citrus Valley Gabriel Mena (195). Ortiz was named the tournament’s lower-weight MVP, after recording three pins.
Doc Buchanan Tournament
At the prestigious Doc Buchanan, area placers included Victor Valley’s Jordan Hill (fifth, 220) and David Ortega (sixth, 120) and Sultana’s Joey Griego (sixth, 160).

Alamance Arts show offers 'community views'
As a child growing up in Culver City, Calif., Sutton enjoyed the trips her family would take to her grandparents’ farm in Central Valley, Clovis, Calif.
“It was so exciting as a little kid to wander around and see farm animals — sheep and chickens,” she said. “Listening to my dad’s and family’s stories. I was really intrigued
Sutton’s parents grew up on farms, but her mom went on to be a teacher, as did her dad, who later became a school principal.
“My mother was an artist and taught art,” she said. “She would teach me how to paint and draw. I began drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon and I’ve loved it ever since.”
Her father, who taught shop at the time, built an easel for Sutton, along with her brother and sister, to create artwork.
“Mom made sure we had brushes, paints and those big rolls of paper,” she said. “I just loved to get that brush moving on canvas — and I still do.”
Rich in cultural arts is how Sutton described her childhood. Her parents were music lovers and made sure their three children had piano lessons as well.
“Now I have that present from my parents,” Sutton said. “I have the ability to play and enjoy music, too.”
One of Sutton’s favorite activities is to visit farmers markets, taking in the sights, sounds and of course, the colors associated with these oftentimes busy markets.
“There’s so much movement and color. Like brush strokes, markets have a lot of motions. And the colors — from vegetables to the flowers. They’re just beautiful,” she said.
