  • Teens helps brighten the holidays

    For approximately 10 years, the parishioners of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church have made Christmas a happier time of year for children in the surrounding areas.
    One way in which they make a difference is through the Angel Tree, a large Christmas tree that stands in the entrance of the church from Thanksgiving until the middle of December. Every year, approximately 1,000 tags are placed on the branches of the tree. The tags have a child’s age and gender and what they want for Christmas. Parishioners take as many tags off the tree as they like and purchase the appropriate gift.
    Cathy Kohlrust, Youth Ministry assistant director, has been the Angel Tree organizer since 2006.

  • Fashion maven: Start the New Year off right

    I   don’t know about you, but I’m already planning my New Year’s resolutions. An important one is that I will keep helping you improve your sense of style. To start the New Year, I will give you some general fashion tips that will help any outfit look a bit better.
    Tip number 1: When it comes to tops, no matter what your shape is, you should not be walking around in something that is not tailored or doesn’t have a waist. Basically, if on the hanger the shirt looks like a big fabric square, it goes in the bin.
    Instead, find something that is tailored to accentuate your waist or something that is cinched at the waist. This can easily be accomplished with a belt.

  • Holiday party do’s and don’ts

    Hurray, Christmas is here! I know many of you will attend Christmas parties or holiday office parties this year. I also know that this holiday season, far too many of you will commit some fashion faux pas, so I’m stopping you before it’s too late. With these tips, you’ll think twice when getting ready for a holiday party.

    The number one priority, even though it is the holidays, is not to be overly festive. Wearing red, green and white altogether to a semi-formal party is a bit too vibrant and tacky. Instead, opt for neutral colors, accenting your outfit with only a couple red, green or white accessories.

  • What teens want for Christmas

    All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. NOT! What do teens want for Christmas? Some middle and high school teens took a minute to reveal what was on their Christmas lists.
    The most popular category this year is electronics. Samantha Courtney, a high school freshman, said she wants an iPod.
    Dima Bronisz, a home school sophomore, wants a new laptop computer.
    High School sophomore Jordon Krepps, also wants a new computer. Mateo Cardiel, a high school freshman, wants new headphones.
    Meanwhile, eighth grade middle school student Devon McClesky said he wants an iPad.
    Electronics always seem to be a popular item among teens, but sometimes it’s hard to figure out exactly what to buy.
