Budget cuts are hurting environment
Editorial cartoon by Anthony Juarez The United States Senate approved the 2011 federal budget plan last week, an action that has been long overdue and wrought with problems. However, the approval came with one questionable addition. An order for the Interior Department to lift protections for gray wolves in Montana, Wyoming, Washington, Oregon and Utah was attached to the federal budget plan to ensure...

Students request new food options
Editorial cartoon by Anthony Juarez The digestion of all on-campus residents is about to be affected.

Fan violence needs to stop

In sports there are fans who the teams rely on to show support by attending games, buying merchandise and even trash-talking with the fans of rival teams. Sometimes the trash-talking can escalate to violence, like the incident that happened after the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Opening Day victory against their rival the San Francisco Giants. After the game, Giants fan Bryan Stow was brutally attacked by... 

We’ve grown in LGBT tolerance

Although the University of La Verne may not be exclusively known for its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups most people know that we have one. Unlike some university campuses the LGBT community here has an on-campus presence: we have the Rainbow Alliance club. The club itself has more than 30 members and has faculty support.

For instance when people hear the word “meltdown” on the news they picture a disaster of Chernobyl proportions instead of what is actually happened at Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant. The disaster was misconstrued by the public’s complete lack of knowledge about... 

Seniority should be priority for housing

Most colleges and universities allocate their housing options to their students on a priority basis, including the University of La Verne. However this fall ULV is changing from its previously used hierarchy system of prioritizing, which allowed students to choose from multiple housing options for the school year, to allowing all current students to turn in their housing applications, creating a first-come,...
