Thomas Matt Goree, a retired newspaperman who once served as editor of The Times' Orange County edition, died Friday of a heart attack at his residence in his hometown of Shawnee, Okla. He was 68. Matt Goree, as he was known to his friends, became editor of the Orange County edition in 1972 and held the position until the mid-1980s. He previously had been city editor of the edition and, from 1970 to 1971, assistant metro editor in Los Angeles. Goree served in the U.S. Army in Korea.
TRAVEL

We are maybe 100 miles from the geographic center of the United States, which looks and feels a lot like the middle of nowhere. We've been cooped up so long that simply getting out to look at the sky is like arriving at Disneyland. The horizon is dark, except for one hole, through which pink light seeps. Five or six miles off is a yellow curtain that is probably hail.
