Vote ‘yes’ on 30: Fund public schools

The educational system has been under financial assault from the state year after year. Proposition 30 would provide a brief shield to our public education system from K-12 to community colleges, while indirectly allowing the University of California and California State University systems to have a brief sigh of relief from what could be another cut of $250 million to their budget. Prop. 30 would... 

Commentary: Shame on our candidates

<i>Commentary</i>: Shame on our candidates
Illustration by Jacob Bogdanoff Alex Forbess, Editorial Director I was selfish; forgive me for being so blind last week. Sometimes politics puts me in a bad mood. Last week’s column was used as a way to vent about the endless, repetitive acts I have seen from President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Even though it still irritates that it is sometimes difficult to pay attention to... 

Put issues above appearance

As the presidential election is almost upon us, the people of the United States have been subjected to the petty slap attacks between our two major candidates over the course of the debates. Audiences have watched as the candidates have bounced insults and ideas off each other and reacted on-the-spot to criticism.

Proposition 32 would hurt unions

Proposition 32 would hurt unions

<i>Commentary</i>: Debate proves to be a school yard brawl
Alex Forbess, Editorial Director So here is the storyline of the presidential debates the United States have seen so far. First, it was anarchy with Republican nominee Mitt Romney throwing more misinterpreted facts, yet President Barack Obama was too zoned out to counter-attack, which led some political junkies to his work. Then there was the Vice-Presidential Debate on Oct. 11, where it was a “release... 

Commentary: Loving your curves is making progress

<i>Commentary</i>: Loving your curves is making progress
Christina Collins Burton, Editor in Chief I am a girl with curves and I am proud of that. Three years ago though, I was sporting big bulky black sweaters, oversized shirts and hid behind a forest of hair everyday to become as invisible as possible. I never saw proud curvy women on television, in movies or even on posters. The role models that were thrust into the lime-light were perfectly fit, photoshopped... 

Let’s keep Rock tradition

Clubs, sororities, fraternities: every one of these groups participates painting the Rock, nestled in front of Founders Hall. Each are given an opportunity to not only use this Rock to show their creativity but it also stands out as a billboard, advertising numerous events that happen within the University. Sometimes these groups just paint the Rock to paint something unique that represents who they...

Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff People are starting to become more cautious about what they eat. Counting calories, reading nutrition facts and choosing healthier alternatives over a McDouble cheeseburger: they are taking every step to ensure a healthy diet and know what exactly is in the food they consume. The Department of Health makes sure that providers inform their customers about this information,... 

Free parking: Come and get it, ULV

Free parking: Come and get it, ULV
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Every day parking lots are filled to capacity at the University of La Verne. Students complain and park in neighborhoods wherever they can squeeze in without a city of La Verne parking permit. With so many new students at La Verne, parking is hell. Students pay $95 for a parking permit for the whole year but there is never any parking. ULV has given students an...
