Perspective: Presidential election matters in El Salvador
I confess that last March, I paid much more attention to the mayoral election in Ahuachapán, El Salvador than I did to the US presidential election this Tuesday. In fact, my confession gets worse.

Kodiak looking to make a statement
Playing in the 4A state volleyball championships never crossed Carissa Cannon’s mind at the beginning of the season. “I was just thinking it was going to be one of those years where we are getting ready for the next year,” Kodiak’s junior outside hitter said.
