            The college process has started for many high school seniors preparing for graduation.  When it comes to knowing everything necessary to succeed in college high school students may be under educated.  Sophomore Josyln Metcalf says, “ You don’t need to be worried about what your major is going to be right away, because there are plenty of clubs and organizations that can help you find out what career choice you want to take.”  However it is important to speak with an advisor to see how your four years are going to go, according to Keisy (Casey) Lopez.   

Paying for college is scary and can keep students from furthering their education.  Assisant Director of Recruitment at UNO Lamarr Womble suggests, “it is better for you to take out a loan as opposed to not going to school at all”.   Current freshman Judea Miles gave her advice to high school seniors, “stay focused! When you get to college don’t get distracted and don’t party to much.”

Webscript- Wedding Cake Story 5
March 11, 2013

The dress, shoes, invites, the reception hall.  Weddings call for a lot of planning.  Wedding cakes have been years in the making with trends that come and go from year to year.  Dustin and Julie Biles Omaha couple will be celebrating 11 years of marriage come this April.  Dustin Biles describe his cake as “a big circle that was yummy with berry filled layers.”  The Biles had a small wedding and only needed a cake big enough to feed around 75 people. 

The Cake Gallery Wedding Designer, Naomi Huerta, says that trends brides use come from magazines such as “The Knot”.   She watched the cupcake towers become a big hit over the last two years, and now change to a more economical order.  This year brides are going with a singe sheet cake with a tiered cake to display.  The designs according to Huerta are calling for sleek and clean with ribbon around the bottom of the layers or vintage looking taking after the bride’s mother’s cake.   It is recommended that you book you cake order three to four months prior to your wedding date.
