Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly an airplane? I flew an airplane in a program called Wright Flight. To be able to fly you have to be a fifth-grader at a school that participates in the program.
Last year during the college football bowl game season, the UofA Wildcats in the PAC 12 conference played Purdue from the Big 10 conference in the Foster Farms Bowl.
The coach for the UofA at the time was Rich Rodriguez. The new coach for the Wildcats is Kevin Sumlin, who was previously coach for Texas A&M. Quarterback for the UofA was Khalil Tate. He set a record for most rushing touchdowns. Arizona’s best linebacker is Colin Schooler, now a sophomore. Arizona had a decent game because of kicker Josh Pollack.
What gathers 100,000 people to the streets of downtown Tucson to celebrate loss, life, and the meaning of it all?

It’s easily one of the most celebrated holidays in Tucson with this year’s celebration, Nov. 2-4, being the 29th annual event.
Have you ever read the book “How to Train Your Dragon,” or seen the movie? I would highly recommend both! Cressida Cowell is the author of the series of 12 chapter books in the How to Train Your Dragon series along with
three other books that relate to the series. In both the movie and the books the two main characters, Hiccup and Toothless, have many adventures together.

My Girl Scout troop and I were waiting to go on a trip to Odysea Aquarium and Dolphinaris for a long time! We had to sell a lot of cookies to earn the money for this trip and finally the day came and we headed to Scottsdale. We were super excited even though it was a long ride to the aquarium. I like to look at the shape of the clouds to pass the time.

This story is about a woman who rides motorcycles. I interviewed my mom, Lupita. She began riding as a child with her dad. She told me about always knowing that she would grow up and ride her own motorcycle one day. Last year, she decided that it was time to buy her own bike.
