Jill Kinmont Boothe was a U.S.-champion skier when she graced the cover of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED in 1955. The issue was still on newsstands when she crashed during a race, breaking her neck, which paralyzed her. Boothe, who died Feb. 9 at 75, became a role model for her tenacious pursuit of altered dreams. She learned to use her neck and shoulder muscles to write and paint, studied German and English at UCLA and was a teacher for three decades. She was the subject of the 1975 film The Other Side of the Mountain. "To get mad ... doesn't get you anywhere," she said in 1967. "You sort of look for what's good that's left."
