Michael Phillips, Copy Editor Upon becoming a resident assistant I remember being told that no one else besides other RAs would be able to relate to the things you go through. A year later I find that sentiment to only be half true. Yes, only another RA will be able to relate to waking up at 3 a.m. to unlock someone’s door, doing rounds in the rain, being on duty during holidays or breaking up a... 

Restaurant Review: Bangkok Blue serves red-hot Thai

Michael Phillips Copy Editor When I walked into Bangkok Blue in La Verne the aroma of Thai cuisine immediately made me hungry. The restaurant is small and seats about 30 to 45 people.

When I arrived at the restaurant I was...

Conducting...

Restaurant Review: Flappy Jack’s flips delicious food

I arrived at the restaurant to find every table in the restaurant full and approximately 10 to 15 people waiting outside to be seated. Twenty five minutes later when I was seated I could not help but...

Restaurant Review: Cupcakery has tastes for everyone

Michael Phillips Copy Editor Before going to My Delight Cupcakery in Ontario, I had always thought of cupcakes as miniature cakes that came in chocolate or plain flavors topped with vanilla, chocolate or holiday themed frosting and sprinkles. However, visiting the bakery challenged all that I thought I knew about cupcakes. From the outside it looks like a typical small bakery. There are two small black...

Blue Chair offers more than books

Michael Phillips Copy Editor Blue Chair Children’s Books in Glendora is more than a place to purchase books, it is a kitchen, a castle, a space ship, sometimes a Quidditch field and much more. The front area of Blue Chair appears to be a regular book store, but in the back there is a large blue chair in a corner, a tall rock climbing area, and a large castle. The book store is owned by former English...
