  • Opinion: Talking about conspiracy theories

    Many times when something major happens, almost always when it involves national security, the conspiracy theorists come out of the woodwork. They all have some explanation of how it is not what it seems to be, and is a government plot to extend federal control. The recent raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound was no different.
    There are two main classes of theories here. Some say that the raid was faked and others say that bin Laden had been dead for years. Quite frankly, both are ridiculous.

  • Fashion maven: Finding the simply suitable swimsuit

    Hurray! Summer is almost here and I am dying to go to the pool. The only thing is that I do not have a fabulous swimsuit. No problem, I will just go to the store and pick out my favorite pattern and be done with it. No, no, no. That is definitely not the way to go.
    I don’t think anybody I have talked to has ever adored swimsuit shopping. For girls, especially, it is a huge pain. Trying to shop for a bathing suit in a store can be difficult. The lighting in fitting rooms is usually far too bright and not beach or pool-like at all, which makes your skin look much paler than it really is.

  • Festival offers a touch of Celtic culture

    Every spring, Balloon Fiesta Park opens its gates to host the annual Rio Grande Valley Celtic Festival. The festival is the only one of its kind in New Mexico and perhaps the entire Southwest.
    This two-day celebration of everything Irish and Scottish offers something for everyone. There are traditional Irish and Scottish games, Irish dog contests, bagpipers, a rugby tournament and shops selling almost anything Celtic.
    The Celtic games are one of the main attractions. They include strength games such as the caber toss, a game where a long-tapered pine pole is stood upright and hoisted by the competitor, who then runs forward attempting to toss it in such a way that it turns end over end with the upper end striking the ground first.

    My little brother’s birthday party

    Their laughs and giggles echo off the trees
    as they run around shooting each other.
    Wrestling on the ground, grass stains on knees, they’re falling down one after another.
    The destruction of a ten-year-old boy,
    no pink, no girls, no Barbie dolls allowed.
    There’s always magic tricks and yoyo toys,
    playing any sport in front of a crowd.
    Sit and watch the little boys and rockets,
    pure joy and fascination in their eyes.
    The rocket starts to lift off and they watch it
    as it disappears in the clear blue sky.
    Little boys and rockets, will soon be men
    grow up so fast, never little again.

  • Shop smart: Impulse buy, or a must-have?

    I think I have found the one bad thing about shopping: being a guilty shopper. If you consider yourself a style addict or a shopaholic, this problem just about doubles. I experienced that heart-wrenching feeling far too many times, when I find the perfect piece of clothing, only to look at the price tag and have to sit down because my legs turn to Jell-O. And sometimes the feeling gets worse. If I love the item to the point where, even after a painful glance at the price, I still want it, then I am in trouble.

  • Spring fever grabs hold of students

    The symptoms are common this time of year. Simply thinking about the fun that freedom will bring once school ends, sweeps the average person into a fantasy world in which giddyness enhabits.
    The most devout students find themselves sighing longingly while staring dreamily out a finger-printed window at the scene beginning to bud right in front of their eyes. Every minute seems like an hour as the clock slowly inches toward the beginning of a new adventure.
    The only thing keeping teens inside is the reality of school discipline.
