Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Regarding the latest in an extremely long list of shootings in this country, I would like to make some observations: we glamorize war and invade countries that didn’t attack us, we promote further violence by having a death penalty, we have two-and-a-half times the per capita gun ownership of any other country in the world (and two-and-a-half times the murder rate), it’s harder... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, It was a beautiful sight to see the crowd that attended the Veteran’s Day ceremony on Friday, Nov. 9. My own war was over 40 years ago, but the young men and women who served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan deserve our support. I’ve been appalled at the level of commitment people have toward our vets; there are lots of people with bumper stickers saying they “Support the Troops,”... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I realize that the last thing people want to hear any more about is the parking situation. I do not have an answer to the problem, but I have some minor suggestions that might make things a little easier. As a former student, current employee and local resident, I offer a unique point of view. I absolutely love living in a college town. I love everything about it. I accept that parking... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a 51-year activist in the civil rights movement, I am becoming frustrated at seeing people in this country repeat the same mistakes of the past. In the 1960s I regularly heard “It’s against the Bible” when I was confronted for the “sin” of attempting to gain equal rights for African-Americans. Leaders of several churches would quote the Bible to me, explaining that not... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, I read your editorial about ASULV not doing their job as leaders at the university (“ASULV not providing leadership,” Sept. 21). May I say that you are sadly mistaken. Yes, I see that people might first think that ASULV and CAB are similar, but that is not the case. Being part of the Office of Student Life for the last two years, ASULV has provided more than, a free meal and a free... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I would like to commend writer Robert Penalber for highlighting the important Migrant Education Summer Institute in your first publication of the year (“Migrant students succeed with Migrant Education Summer Institute,” Sept. 7). The Institute should be showcased for its efforts to make education as accessible as possible for all students. The hard work of Dr. Adonay Montes and his... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Kudos to President Obama for voicing his approval of gay marriage. It was a courageous act, considering the incredible bigotry and hatred that some people are directing at our LGBT brethren. I hear people use Biblical quotations to justify their positions against gays/lesbians, and it reminds me of the 1960s, when I was a Civil Rights Worker trying to change our treatment of Black people... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, For our students, we as faculty and administrators want to be there for any counseling they need. My students are my children and I would hope they can come to me with anything. After all, I was their age, however long ago! Your article (“Bring peer counseling to ULV,” April 13) saddened me in that it seems to say there are currently not enough places for students to go for help. I... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I was so pleased to read your article and the fact that “Students generally feel safe and accepted at La Verne.” (“Graduate study focuses on LGBT students,” March 9). This is part of who we are as Leos and we must all stand up for the needs of all of our students. As an alumnus of the University of Rhode Island, which has a much larger student body, I have been saddened to read... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I support student journalists here at La Verne and I support the Campus Times, so I hate to have to voice my complaint, but after reading the March 2 issue I have to say something. Can you please hire a copy editor? A copy editor used to be a necessary staff position at any publication committed to accurate reporting, fact-checking, and the English language – why doesn’t Campus...
