I see you have a dog. I hope you love your dog as much as I love mine. In fact I love my dog so much that when I got him I vowed to no one in particular that I would be a responsible dog owner and always clean up my dog’s litter when we walk. I see you have a dog. I see you don’t seem to have the same sense of responsibility as I do.
Despite being a non-fan of writer/director/actor/comedian, Seth MacFarlane (the “brains” behind such farcical fare as Family Guy and Ted), I still had high hopes for his latest project, A Million Ways to Die in the West. I love westerns and the genre is pretty easy pickins when it comes to laughs, but unfortunately MacFarlane scrapes most his material from the bottom of the comedic bucket.

Once a trash-strewn empty lot beside train tracks, Railroad Park opened in 2010 and quickly became a favorite gathering spot. With features including ponds, a wetlands area, a walking track and a natural amphitheater, the 19-acre park is a perfect spot to spend a few hours watching people or reading a book.

Corrupt management and lack of pension annual checks and balances should lead to the arrests of those guilty of abusing the vital pension system. Their corrupt actions need prison sentences and fines for the pension system and employees they stole from.

It was my first year at the University of Arizona and I spent it housed in the Yuma dorm, Room 306. Going from a small charter school to living in a dorm with more people than I graduated high school with could be considered a bit of a “culture shock.” There are so many dynamics to the dorm experience, starting with the reputation of the dorm you’re about to inhabit and the small 10-foot-by-10-foot dorm room you’ll be sharing with one or possibly more human beings. You’d be surprised how cramped a small room for two can feel when you introduce a roommate’s girlfriend (or boyfriend for the ladies) to the equation. Not to mention what it’s like to have to share bathrooms with and fight for laundry space with a floor’s worth of people. It may test your patience and gross tolerance levels, but if you do it right it’ll turn out to be one of the neatest experiences of your life and a chance to develop some life-long relationships.
The holidays are over, the calendar has turned a new page and, like many people, you find yourself with a renewed enthusiasm for self-improvement. According to statistics from the University of Scranton, nearly half of Americans regularly make New Year’s resolutions, with weight loss, organization and improved finances ranking among their top three goals.
By the time you’re reading this, our little friends in Congress will have either settled their political hash and come up with a budget and gotten the government back to work or we’ll all be huddled around a trash can fire in a desolated parking lot, fighting for road kill in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian society.
