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... 

There’s no place like Claremont

The newest component of University of La Verne pride is in the form of a $2.5 million Claremont mansion, which was previously owned by L. Frank Baum, the author of “The Wizard of Oz,” and was occupied by his second son, Robert Baum. This grand estate, which is adjacent to the Claremont Colleges, will be used for entertaining, meeting space, fundraising and anything and anybody associated with the... 

Broken oven raises tempers

Broken oven raises tempers
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff A typical functioning kitchen for any restaurant consists of a counter, an oven, a food station and a refrigerator. The types of food available at the establishment usually revolve around what type of equipment they have to work with, but at Barbara’s Place this is not the case. Although improvements have been made and amenities have been added such as the... 

Big brother heads to Glendale

Students posting about their dreadful return to school on social networking sites beware: the Glendale Unified School district announced last week that it would begin monitoring their online activity. Geo Listening, a Hermosa Beach company, will collect information from students’ posts on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube and deliver a daily report to Glendale school... 

New schedule still needs tweaking

New schedule still needs tweaking
Students have always dreaded finals week and at the University of La Verne it is no different. Everywhere you turn students are stressing, cramming and procrastinating. The Wilson Library has opened its doors for 24/7 once again and it is finally being used as students wedge themselves in every nook and cranny they can find in order to concentrate on an assignment or contemplate their doomed fate. This... 

Commentary: Ruining your childhood, one cartoon at a time

<i>Commentary</i>: Ruining your childhood, one cartoon at a time
Veronica Orozco, LV Life Editor Waking up on a Saturday morning to watch cartoons was always a weekly ritual for me as I am sure it was for most children in America. Though I am only 20 years old I have seen shows like “Power Puff Girls” slowly fade into the past and other shows like “Scooby Doo” morph from a once beloved children’s mystery show to a high school drama focusing more on relationships... 

Thank you, readers

Personalized maps are creepy

The latest technological expansion of Google Earth has a new layer of complexity added to its program that caters to the individual. This program has also pushed Google forward in an almost creepy way. The updated mapping of the satellites responsible for the three-dimensional rendering on the Google Earth map now allows Google users to create their own personalized maps that focus on their preferences... 

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... 

Black neighbor joke is nearing insult

On the Internet nothing seems to go better together than a charismatic, black neighbor and a meme. The most recent black neighbor to fall victim to this trend is Charles Ramsey. Ramsey made the news when he helped rescue three missing women in Cleveland, but when his newscast interview went viral, he turned into an Internet celebrity. Ramsey was eating his McDonald’s when he saw Amanda Berry, a woman...
