In Brief

Thorpe Wins Three Championships and 27 Medals in 2004
Scripps Research Security Guard Karl Thorpe has had another banner year in senior track and field meets, where he sprints in the 50-, 100-, and 200-meter dashes. Thorpe, who competes in the 65- to 70-year-old age bracket, laid claim to three championships this year, including the USATF Masters Track & Field Championships, and the California State Games held in San Diego. In addition, he won 20 gold, five silver, and two bronze medals.

"I would like to thank all my friends and co-workers at Scripps for the encouragement this year," says Thorpe. "Next year I am going to national senior games in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, June 6 to 12. I'm looking forward to it."

Lunch and Learn: "Are You in Your 'Right' Mind?"
