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... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I just wanted to thank the Campus Times, especially Christian Orozco, for the article last Friday (“Kennan fights for justice,” Oct. 11). I only hope that some people will read it and become involved in one or more of the many causes we need to fight for right now: Veteran’s benefits, LGBT rights, women’s rights, voting rights, raising the minimum wage, supporting organizations... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a life-long resident of La Verne, I have always loved the progressive heart shown by the University of La Verne. On the occasion of the starting of a new school year, I would like to challenge the students and faculty of the University to become involved in two causes: 1. We are trying to start a Veterans’ Center on campus; the way Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are being treated... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Thank you for stating your opinion on the gun control issue (“Background checks are needed,” May 3), however I am shocked on your stance of the Second Amendment and would like to provide a different opinion. First of all, the background check bill failed because of the same reason many others fail: it was full of high controversial gun control issues. When Obama states that 90 percent... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Thank you, Jason Collins. The courage and dignity that it took to reveal your true identity is very inspiring. I watch a segment of our society continue to vilify gays and lesbians and I am struck by the fact that same-minded people were vilifying interracial marriage (“It will destroy the institution of marriage”) and equality for African-Americans (“The Bible says they should be...
