They look like a band, but they look like a band that would play music much younger than they do. The five sunglass-sporting 20-year-olds that make up The Heist play strictly classic rock, nothing newer, and they play it well. As lead guitarist Brendan McGrath said, “We’re up and coming early to mid 20-year-olds and loving playing music that’s about 40 years older than us.” The cover band, which took their name from the fact that they “steal songs,” McGrath said, will be playing Saturday, Aug. 9, at the 47th annual Watermelon Festival in Sunland Park, 8651 Foothill Blvd.

There are more than 100,000 people on the National Organ Transplant Waiting List. More than 21,000 of those people live in California, according to Donate Life California Organ and Tissue Donor Registry. Despite this, there are about 8.5 million licensed drivers and ID card holders in the nation and only 23% of those people have checked ?yes? on their license or ID card to register as an organ and tissue donor. That number drops to 18% in the state of California. In an effort to bring recognition to the need for organ donors and the importance of letting friends and family know if you are a registered donor, state registries across the nation, together with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, are celebrating National Donor Life Month.

Last week I was sitting in my office giving some perspective on dating to three of my female students. It sort of ironic, since I was 19 when I had my first date.

Throughout our conversation I had this eerie feeling - like something was about to happen. I hadn't felt that way since my days of debauchery hanging out in Lucy's Tiger Den in Bangkok.
