As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, some are headed home to relatives or planning to spend time with friends. Thanksgiving is a time to be with loved ones and catch up.

The Jags had a much needed bye this week and I know what you’re thinking, “Finally the Jags won’t be in the headlines this week for being losers.” Wrong! Dwayne Gratz, the defensive back who was selected in the third round of last year’s draft, was arrested in Miami on two misdemeanor counts of disorderly intoxication and trespassing after attempting to pay for...

My dad found oatmeal in my bathroom drawer. He called me. I was a freshman at the time. I don’t remember where I was. I was probably walking the valley thinking, “I’m too young to be huffing and puffing up these steps” when I saw padre’s number appear on my phone. Incoming call. “Hello?” “Gabi?” “Yeah.” “You know you have oatmeal in your...

I know. It’s a romantic image. Deep in the depths of a dim, fluorescent-lit library, nestled between a tower of Red Bull cans and class notes, the noble college student pores over a stack of tearstained textbooks at 4 a.m. The clock ticks and fingers race against the keys of a laptop computer until, just in the knick-of-time, our weary-eyed scholar slams the books...

Writing was always an outlet, a way to express my feelings through poetry. I never thought that writing could lead to a successful career. Ted Simendinger, a guest speaker in my English Exposition class, changed that perception after he described how he made a career out of writing. Ted is also a well-known author of novels such as "12 Miles to Paradise" and "Jurassic Trout:...

A-Line: slightly touching hips and thighs, broader at the hem, narrow on top to make it look like an “A” Circle: made in a circular shape. It’s very fitting at the waist, and flows away from the hips. Made with lightweight fabric. Accordion: a skirt with narrow pleats. It can be a circle skirt with pressed-in ridges or edge-stitching.
