Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Support the troops – when will the slogan become a reality? Recently I saw a three-tour Afghanistan veteran with a sign that said “Veteran – help me find a job.” I watched while hundreds of cars, many with “Support the Troops” bumper stickers and American flag decals on their cars went by. Not one person stopped. My girlfriend and I talked to him – he says this... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Recent months of conflicts of interest between numerous levels of representation at this University have created chaos, confusion and mistrust at La Verne. This has been evident through the strife of possible unionization, the legitimacy of the elected associated student body and the outcry of increased tuition that was made to be ‘transparent and clear.’ This is not the mistake of... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Tokowitz Sterling has had a remarkable amount of media coverage lately, but for all the wrong reasons. On April 25, TMZ Sports, a subsidiary of our favorite celebrity gossip website TMZ (not so much this writer, but you get the idea) released what was reportedly a racist comment made by Sterling earlier this month. Sources say that Sterling had essentially... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Kristine Delgadillo wrote a very nice article about the Hillcrest Good Samaritan Dinner on March 7, a wonderful yearly fundraiser. However, the dinner did not “save Hillcrest” (“Musical fundraiser saves Hillcrest,” March 14). Hillcrest is a remarkable retirement community and one I’m extremely proud to be associated with as a committee member and volunteer. The Good Samaritan... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, While editorials such as that presented in last week’s Campus Times (“Parking Should Trump Park,” March 7) are opinions, as professional journalists I would have hoped you would have examined some of the facts before launching into your commentary on Leo Park. As a faculty member in the kinesiology department, faculty adviser to ASULV, and faculty member of the Parking Committee,... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I am absolutely disgusted with the latest GOP vote to restrict benefits to veterans. This is another part of an ongoing attack on veterans by people who claim the “patriotic” high ground and who profess to be concerned for human rights and dignity. It is beyond comprehension that people can vote to send soldiers to war (none of their own family, of course), and then vote to limit benefits... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Please allow me to address five audiences on the topic of unionizing adjuncts: Career Adjuncts (like myself): I have a Ph.D., am a good teacher, and contribute significantly to ULV. But as an adjunct without a union, I am forced to teach at four schools, drive hundreds of miles each week, have inadequate health insurance, face the possibility of unemployment at any time, and accept that... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I received a number of letters from the University about the potential of unionizing adjunct faculty. I am very strongly opposed to this effort. Many years ago I was forced to join the Teamsters Union in order to secure employment. It was a minimum wage, part-time job. During those two years I experienced no benefit whatsoever from membership in the union. The union took my money and delivered... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Regarding merit pay for faculty, I’d like us to slow down and to think carefully about the following points. First, I am not aware of compelling empirical data supporting the assumption that merit increases will serve as an incentive for faculty to be more productive. Second, assuming that a percentage increase in base salary is an incentive, will an increase of any size, 2-4 percent... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I read with interest the well versed comments about how easy it is to “sneak into” Davenport by having someone open the back gate (“Too easy to eat free at Davenport,” Nov.1). But, is that really the problem? Isn’t the problem that those students think their classmates should pay for their lunch? If I were a student paying good money for a meal card, would I think it was fair...
