    TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) - Water skiers from across the state are braving the heat, spending their Sunday at Lake Shawnee. Around 85 people competed in events like slalom and jumps for the Kansas Water Ski state Championship.

So everybody comes out to encourage them," said Jimmy Hubbard. The national's championship for water ski is August 10th in Wichita and it's the first year the free event will be

    Central Oregon ski lodge renovation gets $20,000 state grant

    A couple hoping to restore a dilapidated ski lodge west of Sisters in central Oregon has received a $20,000 state grant to launch the effort. The Bulletin reports in a story on Friday that Friends of Santiam Pass Ski Lodge received the grant from the State Historic Preservation Office.

    Ski Mask The Slump God Cut Off All His Dreads

    Ski Mask's first words after cutting off his trademark dreadlocks were "Yeah.Bitch." The XXL Freshman wouldn't really benefit from being taken too seriously, but you'd be hard pressed to find a more solemn statement than that. Two hours ago, Ski Mask shared a selfie depicting his clean cut look. You can pass judgement all you want, (and some sure did) but sometimes boredom just sets in. One user in particular was particularly confused, because they never considered Ski Mask without his signature wave cap. Another internet "bully" took advantage of a negative slant by posing as "Josh," Ski Mask's supposed high school nemesis. The user started off rather positively by apologizing for giving Ski

    Skiing a model for equity says top earner Shiffrin

    By Rory Carroll LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The world's best overall women's ski racer Mikaela Shiffrin, who for the second successive year was the highest paid athlete in the sport, said Alpine skiing can serve as a model for equal pay. The 23-year-old American, who again earned more than the men's top athlete Austria's Marcel Hirscher, said she is proud to be part of a sport that recognizes the achievements of women as equal to those of men. "Gender equality and equal pay in the workplace are hot topics right now and ski racing is one of the most equal professions out there," Shiffrin, who took home 702,774 Swiss francs (USD $710,734) in prize money, told Reuters on Sunday.
