Bell said that her biology class requires 10 hours of volunteer community service - thirty percent of her grade - which she said is fun with enthusiastic kids.

Members of Trinity University's Gay and Lesbian Association gather at Our Lady of the Lake University Saturday, March 27, to protest against Westboro Bapitist Church's support the death of Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old homosexual who was beaten and left on the side of the road on the night of October 6, 1998, dying four days later. Our Lady of the Lake University was putting on a play about Shepard.

Yancey Ranch

I took a day-trip out with my friends Paul and Henry to Paul's ranch in Yancey, in Medina County, with the unexpected awaiting us at this aging property - the house Paul's grandfather built decades ago - and our itching for adventure in the bush; we blew up ant piles, investigated the antique car junk yard, and found a piece of family history escaping the changing times yet slowly weathering away.
