One day mid January 2012, 11yr old Kyara Velez walked into Ybarras Boxing Club in Widefield wanting to learn how to box. She  had a glow to her face when she saw the boxing ring, and asked, "is that the ring I"ll be boxing in?'

Head Coach Joe Ybarra and Asst Head Coach Pedro Arellano looked at her and asked her, "Why do you want box?" She replied "Because I think I'll be good at it."

 So Kyara began working out three times a week from 5-7 pm and putting in extra running miles when she could. The desire and dedication to succeed showed in her training. Her self-esteem an discipline gives her the willingness to succeed in and out of the ring. Kyaras father Issael Velez  a 1LT in the Army at FT. Carson, is currently deployed to Afghanistan. Kyara would have liked to have her father there for her first bout, but she understands that her dad is in another type of fight, protecting us from harms way. Thats why this young girl athlete is so special in her own way.

The coaches are really impressed with her ability to learn the art of boxing. Kyara pays attention to detail on every combination, Her mother Linda Velez  is also a big inspiration in her life. While her husband is away in Afghanistan she has the burden of both Kyara and her little sister Layla who is only six year old. Coach Luis " Joe" Ybarra is really impressed with her progress.

This weekend Kyara won her first boxing bout. She out boxed and out pointed her opponent in the 11yr old 100lbs wgt division, Veronica Medina from One Springs Boxing in Denver. The coaching staff believes that Kyara's willingness to be the best in boxing could take her a long way in the future. But for right now she misses her dad and dedicated this fight to him. Congratulations Kyara, on a job well done.

Tips for selecting that first car for the kid provided by Dawn Langford of MasterDrive

Selecting the best vehicle for a new driver is an important step.  New drivers need a vehicle that is maneuverable, safe, and practical.  Here are our recommendations to consider when selecting a vehicle for a new driver:    

v  Get a midsize sedan with good crash rating –a big SUV is VERY difficult to control

v  IF your new driver must drive a large car or SUV .. make certain they know how to handle it and how it feels when there are significant shifts in weight

v  Consider the size of the vehicle .. the bigger the car the greater the damage it can cause another car in a crash
