If you saw 14 teens dressed in baggy jeans and hoodies, and tooling around on skateboards, what would you think? Trouble? Not so, says Hektor Esparza. He heads the local Winchester Skate Team. They volunteer for the community, showcase their art, and keep their eye on the ultimate goals: college and careers. The team members talk to us about redefining the skater image, and show off a few cool tricks.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
