I feel extremely blessed to work with tweens and teens as they learn to navigate the many challenges of adolescence.

GLENDALE – Soon after the nets were cut down about year ago and a perennial power was dismantled, Division I girls basketball coaches knew for the first time in years a state title was in the offing.

I “was” a die-hard Republican, now I’m pondering what type of party would best represent my views. I’m also agnostic. I will never be a Democrat, nor a religious Bible thumper.

Why, oh why, couldn’t our elected representatives see the problems with this bill? I’m now convinced that we have idiots on both sides of the aisle representing mainstream America.
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but few could justifiably question the beauty of a Hayao Miyazaki film. A revered master of animation, the Oscar-winning director/writer makes something as simple as a hazy sky so ravishing, it can take your breath away.
Big screen. Big effects. Big budget. Big box office.

More than 78 million strong, baby boomers are reaching retirement age (65) at a record pace — 10,000 per day, to be exact, according to the Pew Research Center — and living years longer than previous generations. By the time all the boomers will have turned 65 in 2030, 18 percent of the nation’s population will be at least that age, according to the research center’s projections. Compare that to the population makeup just four years ago, when a little more than 10 percent of Americans were ages 65 and older.
