A Passion for Problems

A Passion for Problems

Liam Vance is an elite athlete who is driven more by the joy of a great problem than by the thrill of competition.

He is not motivated by medals and accolades, but takes great pride in the numerous accomplishments he has achieved as one of the top young boulderers in the United States.

When he was seven years old, Vance discovered bouldering almost by accident. “His sitter took him to Rocknasium (an indoor climbing facility in Davis),” his mother, Karen Hewett said. “And that’s where it started. He came home and he was so excited he could barely stop talking about it.”

Unlike traditional climbing or sport climbing, bouldering is a dynamic, more gymnastic form of climbing that requires explosive, powerful movements and focuses on individual moves or short sequences of moves. Boulder routes are commonly referred to as “problems” because the nature of the climb is often short and emphasizes problem solving, which is what drew Vance to the sport.

Woodland man sentenced for failing to register as sex offender

WOODLAND - United States Attorney Benjamin Wagner announced Tuesday that Travis Grey, 27, of Woodland, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John Mendez to 10 months in prison to be followed by supervised release for 10 years. During his term of supervised release Grey will be monitored by a federal probation officer, and he will be prohibited from accessing the Internet and having unsupervised contact with minors. Grey will also be required to register as a sex offender.

According to court documents, Grey was court-martialed by the Marines in 2007 for receiving child pornography. As a result, he was ordered to register as a sex offender. In 2010, Woodland police discovered that Grey had failed to register.

This case is the product of an investigation by Woodland Police Department and the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office. Assistant United States Attorney Carolyn K. Delaney prosecuted the case.
