Rating: «« out of 4 stars

Running Time: 153 min.

The first Man of Steel movie left me pretty cold. As someone without a comic book background, it did little to engage me. The story lacked well-drawn characters and seemed to revel in nonsensical action and destruction. I came into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice...

There are 15 teams in Gallup participating in Relay for Life, but only one from a school – Team Bengals of Gallup High.

Pam Yardley, who has been a counselor at Gallup High School for 16 years, started a relay team five years ago with a small group of students. The goal is to raise money for the American Cancer Society, who funds research and treatment for the deadly disease.

Relay for Life started in Washington in 1985, and has since spread around the world and has raised nearly $5 billion.

Team Bengals is led by captains Jesus Belleza and Michelle Rascon and includes 15-20 students. In the past two years, they have raised over $8,500 for ACS, and they show no sign of slowing...
