LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:
rom the Austin Chronicle this week comes a selection of culinary tomes covering such diverse topics as wine, the sweet life in Italy, Sicilian recipes, the American appetite, and the fish that changed the world, the cod.

Keiko Yoshimine enters her junior year this fall, trying to make the Northern Arizona University Lady Lumberjacks as a walk-on. The odds are against her, but this is only basketball. You want long odds, try 5-foot-10 female Japanese-American Mormon.
