Vote ‘yes’ on 30: Fund public schools

Proposition 30 would provide a brief shield to our public education system from K-12 to community colleges, while indirectly allowing the University of California and California State University systems to have a brief sigh of relief from what could be another cut of $250 million to their budget.

Put issues above appearance

As the presidential election is almost upon us, the people of the United States have been subjected to the petty slap attacks between our two major candidates over the course of the debates.

Proposition 32 would hurt unions
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Supporters of Proposition 32 claim that the measure will reform local and state elections that are heavily dominated by special-interest money.

Hazing is unacceptable

Since the news of hazing at La Puente High School, old wounds have been reopened for locals in Southern California. Last week freshman members of the boy’s soccer team came forward and accused at least 10 of their older teammates of jumping them in the supply closet and beating them. At least one boy was sodomized. The victims said that they wanted to come forward after several months of silence... 

Fliers contradict University values

When walking through the University of La Verne students can find dozens of fliers and posters displayed everywhere, publicizing events both on and off campus. There are 15 bulletin boards spread out across campus plus 27 bulletin boards throughout the residence halls on which both the Office of Student Housing and Residential Education and the Office of Student Life approve these fliers for display. The...
