Behind the scenes: stones in the desert…eterno

Getting to play pretend has always been a fun experience, even if it was just playing cops and robbers as a kid. Now, I get to do it as a hobby and hopefully professionally in my near future. Acting not only gives you an experience to learn about different people’s culture and habits by taking on different characters, but you ... Read More »

Staying positive while running for royalty

Just like any little girl I wanted to be a princess, but I always felt like I didn’t fit the part. I’m not your typical preppy, happy go lucky girl that is active in every organization that you can join. I was the quiet, nose-in-my-books kind of girl who was scared to join anything. I avoided any chance of rejection. ... Read More »

Getting over the hurdle

Apathetic. The first time I ever used that word to describe my attitude about life was in high school. That’s when I discovered that I suffer from mild depression. It was a horrible feeling, knowing that I should care when I just didn’t. If only it were as simple as people make it out to be. But it’s not as ... Read More »

Snapping, Sexting and Celebrities

Celebrities aren’t the only ones that need to worry about getting hacked anymore. It is estimated that more than 200,000 photos taken on Snapchat, a popular app used by high school and college students, have been hacked and leaked onto the Internet. With a photo dump that big, which people have labeled “The Snappening,” there is not much known about ... Read More »

Rebuilding Javelina Pride

It was a move that we all saw coming. The writing was on the wall when Eastern New Mexico pounded the Javelinas 31-0 a couple of weeks ago, and the final straw was this past Saturday against Tarleton. The 80-14 beatdown was the nail in the coffin for former head coach David Calloway. In Calloway’s tenure, he saw the worst ... Read More »

The Bottom line: Questionable Decisions

Where do we even begin? The failures of this Javelina football team have been self-evident since they won their lone game of the season vs. Colorado Mesa. For starters lets get to the quarterback carousel that has been taking place the past couple of weeks ever since starting quarterback Trey Mitchell went down to a shoulder injury in the LSC ...

The loudest silence

Have you ever loved anyone or anything with every fiber in your body? From experience, I can say that love really does make you crazy. It’s a rollercoaster ride with butterflies, laughter and the conversations I can’t have with anyone else. Sometimes its perfect, like something from a movie and I can’t imagine caring about someone else so deeply. Then ... Read More »

Abortion clinics close

Texas has thus far done an excellent job of denying women the right to an abortion –there are only eight abortion clinics left in the state, down from 41 – but they seem to have overlooked one option: a woman’s doctor’s office. State stature, according to the Texas Tribune, does not require physicians’ offices, such as gynecology and obstetrics practices, ... Read More »

Keeping Wall Street out of the White House

Money talks and, boy, do politicians listen. As election season nears, the first race that comes to my mind is Texas’ own gubernatorial race which pits Wendy Davis against Attorney General Greg Abbott. I’m not really thinking about the platforms involved with each candidate, but rather the discrepancy in campaign funds between the two. Wendy Davis has gotten contributions from ... Read More »

The Bottom Line: Looking to the locals

Last weekend was a hard fought game that saw our guys come away with another defeat. This defeat is significant simply because the team that was picked to finish last place took our team out and dominated in all phases of the ball. It’s difficult to point out exactly what is wrong with this 2014 football team because quite frankly ... Read More »
