With spawns for most species of fish in the early to beginning stages, now is prime time to blow the dust off that lazy fishing gear and get your line in the water. If you are a beginner, this is great practice time for attempting to catch fish. Whether you catch anything or not, it’s well w…

For a fun-filled morning, take a pinch of great Yuma weather, add a bus filled with friendly people and mix in some locally grown produce. That’s the recipe for a Field to Feast Tour that offers the public an opportunity to learn what is grown in the Yuma area and gain an understanding of ju…

This time of year is known as a time of renew. New year, new you, right? In the health and wellness world, diet and exercise are always on the top of the list in regards to New Year’s resolutions. Many come to me to coach them through how to get on track, how to stay on track and how to get …

If you haven’t made the trip to northern Arizona near Williams to visit the Bearizona Wildlife Park, it would be well worth doing. It’s a great place to take your kids and family to enjoy all the exotic animals, including two of the newest additions to the compound, Nacho and Libre, two beau…

A little girl was visiting a beautiful cathedral that was known for its stained glass windows. She was standing with her aunt in the late afternoon. The sun’s rays were shining through one of the stained glass windows. It contained the figures of several saints. The little girl pointed to on…

A trip to Hawaii found me spending time on Oahu and Lanai. Both islands are beautiful and offer endless opportunities to photograph interesting and exotic plants. When visiting Oahu’s Chinatown, I hoped to see a vegetable that has been grown and cooked by Chinese for centuries. Chinese call …

Lots of people can claim to lack at least one of the attributes that pave the road to privilege. Maybe they belong to an ethnic minority. Maybe they live in a place where women still haven’t achieved full equality. Maybe it’s their language, religion, marital status or sexual orientation tha…

I like to think of New Year’s as a reset button that allows us to forget all that went wrong in the previous year and look forward toward the future. This is the time to set resolutions and goals that will serve as a guide to improving who you are. Oftentimes these goals can be ordinary such…

Rarely we get do-overs in life. There are very few times when we can start again. Fortunately, today is that day. The new year brings brand new opportunities to be who you want to be, do what you want to do and accomplish new goals (or old ones). Just as any other time we set goals, this dec…

As the story in the Mountain Journal put it when writing about animal killing contests, “Just because something is legal does that mean it’s ethical and moral? And, if something isn’t ethical or moral, should it then be legal? Dog and cockfighting used to be legal, so did slavery and denying…
