In addition, a reputation for developing an impeccable work ethic helped Posthuma get places and receive recognition, leading to him picking up his annual share of postseason accolades while starring for St. Francis High. Posthuma's style hasn't changed that much, as he's now a junior forward on the Cal State Fullerton men's soccer team, but by his account his skills have.

My late grandmother used to say that hard work is something that is instilled in someone from birth. Whenever she would give advice, she would say be grateful that you have a job and work hard, because a hard worker always learns a new skill. Although my grandparents didn't have the opportunity to pursue careers, they both worked hard for their family. My grandmother worked in the administrative field while my grandfather, I was told, did many things, from working in a slaughterhouse to retail and many other jobs.

Re: “ Has the economy damaged the work ethic? ” In Theory, April 28: Once again I'm amazed that the Rev. Bryan Griem can call himself a Christian. I thought Christianity was about love, empathy, compassion and care for those who are suffering, hurt and less fortunate. Instead we get Griem's Christianity of selfishness and greed when he states,” I tend mine and I reap” or “we Protestants.” He disdains the immigrant and unemployed. To him, it's us against them. What a very sad theology, which is completely opposite of what Jesus taught.

Bats and gloves have been stashed away for good. Cell phones and computers are the objects now being used by Mark Loretta in his new line of work. Armed with a new off-the-field job following a steady 15-year playing career, Loretta hasn’t shied away from learning baseball matters outside the lines. It’s a vastly different end of the spectrum from previous spring training camps and regular seasons, when Loretta spent countless hours taking batting practice, scooping up grounders in the infield and competing against the best competition the sport had to offer.

SAN MARINO — Glendale High’s boys’ water polo team, despite its share of preseason hype and expectations, is still very much a work in progress according to the Nitros. Fortunately for the Nitros, winning and working have been one and the same thus far. Example enough of that theory was seen on Tuesday afternoon, as Glendale bested host San Marino, 9-7, in a nonleague match at San Marino High. “I was very happy we were able to work on something we practiced, but I think we still have a lot of things we have to work on,” said first-year Nitros Coach Forest Holbrook, whose team improved to 5-1 with the victory.
