THE GUY’S PERSPECTIVE: Do boys only care about looks? - Q. I am 17 and in high school. The boys in our school seem infatuated with more “mature” and flirtatious girls, of which I’m neither. I’m more of a jock. I play soccer and basketball and hang out with my girlfriends. But I am interested in boys and would like to be part of the “scene” in some way. Is it true that all they care about is looks? By Saelen Ghose, GHNS.

GRAB THE GOOD: Reaching goals once and for all - I’ve been carrying around an extra 10 pounds my entire adult life. Do I want to lose this weight? Yes. Have I lost this weight? No. My excuses range from real to ridiculous, but the result is the same — 10 extra pounds remain. It’s the same with most of our goals in life, we whine and complain about them —  sometimes even putting them out for the world to see — but we struggle to take action. It’s time to end that nonsense. Whether we’re talking money, career advancement, exercise or working on our relationships, now is the right time. Follow my plan to start bringing your goals into reality. By Molly Logan Anderson, GHNS.

OPINIONS

 

JEFF VRABEL: The most interesting fundraiser in the world - It turns out The Most Interesting Man In The World is not just a focus-grouped construct designed by a team of skilled marketers firing at a younger demographic, but an actual human person with feelings and beliefs, one of which is that he likes this "Barack Obama" character who is currently sailing towards re-election against the worst political opponent in the history of anything, real and fictional, and yes I'm counting President Skroob from "Spaceballs," who at least had the smarts to keep a three-ring circus and some escape pods on his flagship. By Jeff Vrabel, GHNS.

SILVIO CALABI: Hyundai’s gas-electric Sonata needs help - Wise men from Shakespeare to Cervantes have noted that “comparisons are odious.” (Shakespeare actually wrote “odorous,” but the point is made.) Hyundai may agree, at least when it comes to stacking up this week’s Sonata Hybrid against the TCH, Toyota Camry Hybrid, that we drove last week. Seat-of-the-pants contrasts don’t get any fresher than this. By Silvio Calabi, GHNS.

ALIX KUNKLE: After this NHL lockout, will anyone even care? - I've been a hockey fan longer than I have a baseball fan. In fact, I went to my first hockey game — a 2-2 tie between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Montreal Canadiens — before I did my first baseball game. So despite the lockout, I'll still watch the NHL when/if they come back. I'll probably be one of a small few, but I'll still be watching. By Alix Kunkle, Leesville, La.
