StarostaWhen the calendar pages start flipping faster than political figures on stances, that usually signals the time to start slowing down, to take it easy and maybe even consider retirement, at least to some degree.

Still going strong as a writer and educator, the octogenarian remains a lively expert in the world of sport and learning theory, particularly motor sports, proving to be a worthy recipient of a 2015 Distinguished Service Award (DSA) by the United States Sports Academy.
