(NewsUSA) - Cuando se trata del Día de las Madres, la mayoría de ellas pueden esperar recibir buenos gestos, como un desayuno especial o almuerzo y regalos por parte de su familia. El Día de las Madres es considerado como una de las fiestas más importantes del año para la comunidad hispana. Las madres hispanas suelen ser el ancla de la familia. Ellas toman las riendas en todos los asuntos familiares y del hogar - desde cocinar para toda la familia hasta involucrarse en todas las actividades sociales y escolares de sus hijos.

El Día de las Madres es típicamente uno de los días festivos donde más se entrega regalos en la comunidad hispana. Como una manera de expresar sentimientos de gratitud, respeto y honor, la familia hará un esfuerzo considerable para darle a mamá todo lo que ella desea - desde pequeños electrodomésticos y decoración para el hogar hasta ropa de moda, ropa deportiva, joyería fina y accesorios.

Los comercios nacionales como JCPenney, ofrecen una variedad de opciones para mamá. "Sabemos que las madres son veneradas en la comunidad hispana, es por eso que queremos que la entrega de regalos sea tan simple como sea posible con nuestra plataforma de regalos en línea para el Día de las Madres en JCPenney.com, como una manera sencilla y efectiva de encontrar una variedad de regalos de calidad a excelentes precios bajos", dice Lyris Leos, director de marketing multicultural de JCPenney. "También estamos alentando a nuestros clientes a que se diviertan homenajeando a mamá dándole todo el crédito al publicar fotos que muestren los estilos que aprendieron de sus madres utilizando los hashtags designados #DeMiMama y #JCPLookbook para tener la oportunidad de aparecer en nuestro sitio de Tumblr, JCPLookbook.com".

Si todavía estás buscando ideas de regalos, solo echa un vistazo a estas fantásticas recomendaciones de JCPenney:

* Para la mamá que le gusta la comodidad. Dale un par de pantuflas Isotoner o Muk Luk, una hermosa y suave bata tipo spa de Liz Claiborne para relajarse en casa o un suave cojín masajeador de espalda del Dr. Scholl.

* Para la mamá elegante. Hazla sentir hermosa con un nuevo collar que tiene un corazón de Love Grows como colgante o una pulsera de plata con diamantes de 14k de oro t.w.

* Para la mamá que es ama de casa. Regálale unas rejillas para copas de Epicureanist para la parte inferior del gabinete o un delicado juego de 16 vajillas JCPenney Home con diseño de encaje de Chantilly para esas cenas dominicales con la familia. O elige un juego personalizado de cuatro copas blancas para vinos.

* Para la mamá que está a la moda. Dale lo más exclusivo con la chaqueta manga larga con diseño a la cintura de Evan-Picone o el vestido estampado floral sin mangas de Worthington.

Locals battle for Guymon titles

Twisted Rodeo - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 10:51am

GUYMON, Okla. – There’s something in the water in Texas County, Okla.

This place is the breeding ground for great cowboys, whether they’re raised here or have transplanted to the Oklahoma Panhandle. There are plenty of great ones.

The proving ground has always been the Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo. It will be again during this year’s championship, set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 1; 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 2; and 2 p.m. Sunday, May 3, at Henry C. Hitch Pioneer Arena.

“It’s an important one for me, for sure,” said Trell Etbauer, a four-time Linderman Award winner from Goodwell, Okla., just 10 miles southwest of Guymon. “It’s my hometown rodeo and the closest big rodeo I go to all year.”

The son of two-time world champion Robert Etbauer and his wife, Sue, Trell grew up in this neck of the woods. He was a star athlete at Goodwell High School and a champion cowboy from youth rodeo through college at Oklahoma Panhandle State University.

But he’s one of many elite rodeo cowboys with ties to the Oklahoma Panhandle who have made their name on the ProRodeo trail. A list of world champions from the area is a good indication of that.

In addition to Robert Etbauer, there are 10 other gold buckles that have been earned by cowboys from the area once known as No Man’s Land: Billy Etbauer has the most with five saddle bronc riding world titles, followed by Taos Muncy, who has two; fellow bronc riders Tom Reeves and Jeff Willert join heeler Jhett Johnson with one apiece.

They are just a few of the elite contestants who make their living in ProRodeo who have ties to the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles. Atop the list, though, is Trevor Brazile, a 21-time world champion who grew up in nearby Gruver, Texas. He is a 45-time qualifier to the National Finals that also owns a record 12 all-around gold buckles.

He isn’t the only north Texas Panhandle cowboy to make the NFR; he was joined by Bray Armes, who also grew up near Gruver. This past December, they were joined in Las Vegas by Muncy and fellow bronc riders Cort Scheer, a Panhandle State alumnus and two-time Reserve World Champion, and Tyler Corrington, who lives near Gruver; and Joe Frost, a senior at Panhandle State who finished the 2014 season as the Reserve World Champion.

This is the perfect proving ground, but Pioneer Days Rodeo is a tough place to win. Nearly 1,000 contestants sign up to be part of the week long competition that concludes the first weekend in May each season.

“A lot of times, Guymon falls after the California run, so a lot of the guys heading back to Texas can hit it,” Trell Etbauer said. “It’s also one of the bigger rodeos, and all the guys go to those.”

Those are the attractive features for the sport’s greatest stars, but there are many more. The prize money is a key ingredient, but so is the competition. All steer ropers participate in four go-rounds, with the top 32 times returning for a fifth round. In tie-down roping, team roping and steer wrestling, each contestant is afforded two runs, with the top 40 teams returning for a third round.

Barrel racers all compete in the first round on Friday morning, then the top 40 times are brought back during the performances for the second round. When it’s all mixed together, it allows for a cut-throat approach to the big purse.

“I’ve placed in some rounds and placed in the average in calf roping and steer wrestling, but I’d really like to win it at least once,” Etbauer said. “You always want to win your hometown rodeo, and it’s usually the toughest to win. Guymon is especially tough, because so many great cowboys are there.”
