The inseparable duo played on the same t-ball team and the current Pirate student-athletes were classmates from kindergarten through eighth grade at Saint Columban Elementary School in Garden Grove.

Extra hours lead to leap year, keeps anatomical balance

Presidential elections happen every four years, and they always take place on leap years, which just happens to be a coincidence. This year’s Summer Olympics, taking place in London, will also occur on a leap year. The time it takes the Earth […]
