LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he southern coast of Oregon is the most beautiful part of the entire West Coast, rivaled only by Big Sur and Carmel, California. It took a day and a half to cover Oregon's 350 miles.

Take the Catskill Mountains, the bright June sunshine, young men and women from all over the world, and add 500 overweight children for three surreal months.

The basic premise of bull riding is deceptively simple -- stay on the bull for eight seconds. It might sound easy, but the threat of injury, even death, is prevalent.

To round off this week's selection, we've got NBA playoffs, river racing, a dance performance, and a guide to vegetarian barbecuing.
