Wolfe’s Woofer: Engagement
“How is Sylvia doing?” Sherry asked. “Like most twenty-year-old girls,” Señora Morales said. “All she thinks about is that boyfriend Ralph and getting married.” Sherry doesn’t have The Little Red dessert shop anymore, but she still does a lot of baking for us and a lot of other people. She hires Señora Morales to help with the baking. “That girl getting grown-up,” the old lady continued. “Time she gets married before she gets in trouble. Even if that Ralph is a drunk.”

Letter to the Editor: Beware of Scotiabank
Dear Editor, Recent events leave me no choice but to advise the public of an ongoing situation at Scotiabank. If you have a credit card account or accounts; Beware! If you are being charged late fees and interest, through no fault of your own - as I am, it is basically wrong and possibly criminal. Scotiabank systematically sends out the monthly statements late. On my Credit Card statements with Scotiabank, the statement date is printed on the 11th of each month. So why does it take Scotiabank 21 days to get the statements to the Post Office in our small town when I only have 25 days to pay it?

Doctor Love: A sensitive Friendship
Dear Doctor Love, I am one of a group of five girls who’ve been close since we were toddlers. We went to school together and graduated from the same class in the same year. A few of us have moved away and we are all married and starting families but we stay in touch regularly and each year we take a trip together. One girl in our group has been unsuccessful in her attempts to have a child. She’s had many miscarriages, one in her last trimester.

POPOL VUH:The Hero Twins
Once upon a time, a long time ago, there lived two brothers.The brothers tried very hard to be good gardeners. But even the rabbit that rooted in their garden for food each day knew they were not very good at gardening. What they were good at, great at, absolutely excellent at, were ballgames. Onlookers cheered so loudly whenever the boys played ball that the noise attracted the attention of the Lords of Death. The Lords of Death lived in the Underworld. They liked to trick people into dying. They especially liked tricking people who were bothering them, and the boys were bothering them. They were far too noisy! The Lords of Death sent a message to the brothers praising their wonderful talent. The message included an invitation to play a ballgame in the Underworld. The brothers were instructed to bring their ball and their protective gear as none could be provided. No one played ball in the Underworld normally, so this would be a great treat for everyone.

Parts of the U.S., Mexico on alert for tropical development in the coming week
While tropical storm formation has been scarce so far this tropical season, the area near Central America may become a breeding ground for tropical activity later this week. Over Central America, patches of heavy rain and thunderstorms will continue to gather compliments of a large and slowly-spinning, non-tropical storm, called a gyre. "The large gyre over Central America will continue to bring an active pattern to northern Central America and southern Mexico the next few days," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Max Vido. "Periods of heavy rain will continue to effect these areas over the next several days, leading to flooding and potentially higher-terrain mudslides from Columbia to southeastern Mexico," Vido added.
