Final Word: Lulu yoga pants

If you don't own a pair of Lululemon yoga pants at this point, you might be in the minority of women who work out.

Lulu is the darling of the workout clothing world. Their clothes are good looking, fashion forward and very in demand.

The company's stock has gone WAY up since its debut in 2007, but it's down today. Thanks to a recall that is affecting its wearers in a very embarrassing way.

Apparently some of the company's black yoga pants, the ones made out of the so called Luon fabric, are a little sheer -- OK, see through.

You might be wearing them and not realize just what you are revealing, especially when in downward facing dog.

Lulu is offering customers refunds or replacements… as for me? I think it's a dirty trick. I can't go into Lulu and just buy what I came for. I will come out with three more things.

Run on Cyprus banks

You think WE have it bad when it comes to our spending and the sequester? Sure, our taxes went up and Congress and the president can't seem to agree on real spending cuts, but on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, the government is so upside down financially that, over the weekend, they warned that they would literally raid citizens' savings accounts to pay for the government debt.

This sent the people into a panic as they raced to empty their bank accounts. Banks closed and ATM machines ran out of money. The Parliament is trying to come up with a better solution but in the meantime, people are scared and faith in government is just about at zero.

That's scary.

Opening day for Little League

And on the day before the first official day of Spring, comes a warm weather rite of passage. All over the Valley, Little League baseball begins play this week. It's the best season of them all, in my opinion. Whether its tee ball or player pitch, Saturday morning or under the lights, there is nothing like it. First game for the Orioles of the Arcadia Little League is tonight at 7:15.

Hopefully all that hard offseason work will pay off.

About the Author

Years with the company: Just started with Bonneville, but have worked for and with KTAR AM and FM since 1991.

Career: I always knew my career would be touched by news. I started as a news intern in 1991 and eventually reported news and sports, and anchored newscasts at KTAR when it was an AM, news/talk/sports station. I went to work at the Attorney General's Office in 1995, as a spokesperson for the 300 attorneys there, and for Attorney General Grant Woods. I returned as a part-time host and host of Arizona's Morning News Saturday in 2001.

Education: I escaped Catholic school early when the nuns wanted me to skip the second grade. I found my independent voice at a private grade school in Painesville, Ohio, then called Phillips Elementary. The teachers there encouraged us to ask questions and challenge the status quo. They took us on mind-opening trips and never once treated us like children. I am grateful for those years! I left Ohio in 1988 to attend Arizona State University because I knew I wanted to live in the West. I majored in Journalism and interned at KTAR in the newsroom my senior year.

Family: I am the last of nine children and my parents were undoubtedly looking at retiring when I was born. I was raised early on mostly by my five wonderful sisters. I have so many first cousins that I haven't yet met most of them.

Favorite movie: Caddyshack and anything by John Hughes.

#1 sports team: NL Diamondbacks. AL Cleveland Indians. Gotta love a team whose mascot is named Chief Wahoo.

Outside interests: Working out, cooking, traveling and reading a great book.
