The Reid Park Zoo in downtown Tucson celebrated the birth of a baby tapir a couple of weeks ago. The tapir is an endangered and bizarre creature from South America. It looks like a pig with an elephant’s trunk, but it is related more to rhinos and horses than pigs. It uses its mini...

Talking It Over: Reasons to keep your resolutions
New Year’s resolutions are being made and broken quite regularly at this time of year. Those who make a resolution have good intentions at the time, but sometimes lack the resolve to stick to them. Maybe, when we make a resolution, we need to look deep and find out why we really...

Talking It Over: Riding on the waves of life
I sometimes think that life is like an ocean. There are ebbs and crests, whirlpools and eddies, calm water and stormy seas. We start out in life fairly calm, just like resting on a quiet beach. Life can continue to be calm until suddenly we are faced with a challenging storm that...

Talking it Over: Taking it one day at a time
Living your life from day to day is a good plan but difficult to do. People advise you to take things one day at a time, and there are even songs and poems about this. However, saying it and doing it are two different things. I am a planner, both long range and short term. I like...
