Having served as deputy business editor of the Herald since June 2005, Gatlin was promoted to business editor. Convey expressed confidence that, as business editor, "he'll take Business Today to the next level." * Jeffrey Peters '96 and his friend John Green hiked from Death Valley, the lowest place in the United States, to the summit of Mount Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48 states. They hiked for six days, stopping for food and water at caches they had previously set up. The last cache contained some extra items. How could they descend Whitney in just 25 minutes? "I was on skis, and my friend John was on snowboard," Peters said.  * "We figured we would try our hardest, and if it didn't work we would go do something else," Brent Ryan '97 told The Providence Journal, talking about the brewery he and a group of Colby friends started in Rhode Island. The article highlights people who have successfully followed their dream of starting their own business. Luckily for Ryan and his friends, trying their hardest did work. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained," Ryan said.
