Watch for signs of relationship abuse

Domestic violence is an ever-growing problem in intimate relationships. Almost daily, the news reports a man abusing then murdering his wife or a woman killing her husband and trying to make it look like an accident. Whether it is a married couple or a newly dating couple, knowing the signs for future violence is necessary for the protection of either person. Although domestic abuse happens more often... 

We all deserve a break

Now is about the time when many students are beginning to feel burned out. Some are feeling stressed out from school, work and extracurricular activities. Before it gets to this stress point, we feel that the University should grant students a break during the fall semester. We acknowledge that students are given a two-day break in recognition of the Thanksgiving holiday. However two days is not very...

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, This is in reference to the Campus Times article, “Athletics could lose facilities with new campus construction” (Nov. 12). While this is a good article that addresses a topic of concern to student and student-athletes, it unfortunately appears that this did not include the most current information prior to printing the article, and this has created some factual and philosophical misrepresentations. It... 

Commentary: Let’s all just play fair

<i>Commentary</i>: Let’s all just play fair
Elsie Ramos, Sports Editor Covering a sporting event is one of the most exciting things to do in the field of journalism. You get to feel the energy of the crowd, the emotions of the players and the thrill of the game. When one of our staff writers comes up to me and tells me that the game was really good, I get excited because I am thinking that I am going to get a good story. But then their faces... 

Students take their safety for granted

This semester the University of La Verne’s residence halls have experienced a series of attempted robberies, harassment and unwanted visitors, that has shaken many of the students who live on campus. Students generally believe that since the University is in the city of La Verne, a city known to be safe, and quiet that they do not have to worry as much about leaving their doors open, walking alone... 

Commentary: Marriage is meant to be religious

<i>Commentary</i>: Marriage is meant to be religious
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief During one of our weekly editorial board meetings, we were discussing what we would like to put into our “New Governor Wish List.” All of the editors present, excluding me, said to ask our new Gov. Jerry Brown to support gay marriage. I used my veto and said I would not risk my conservative beliefs and did not agree to place the wish on our list. After much unappreciated... 

Commentary: Gays have the civil right to marry

<i>Commentary</i>: Gays have the civil right to marry
Branden del Rio, News Editor Although there was nothing close to it on the Nov. 2 ballot, gay marriage is still an issue that must be dealt with. And by that I mean it should be legalized. The fact of the matter is there is no real argument against legalizing gay marriage. First, there is no point in “protecting marriage.” That is not to be taken negatively, but the truth is that the institution... 

A wish list for our new governor

The governor’s race is finally over and Jerry Brown is now our governor elect. But as the dust settles, the truth of the state of California remains.We are in a deep recession, with more than 12 percent unemployment and serious state budget deficits that have caused cuts in just about every social service. Which is why we are offering Brown our short wish-list to help him order his priorities: First,... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, In the Nov. 5 issue of the Campus Times, the editors recommended a minimum SAT score higher than the 850 combined score apparently proposed by the College of Arts and Sciences (“SAT minimum should be raised”). If the proposal is to not accept applications from students with a score below 850, we think such a policy would be ill-advised. The National Association for College Admission... 

Please remember it is just reality

The stars of Fox’s hit show “Glee” recently did a photo spread for GQ magazine, in what could be said to be a risque manner. Inside the magazine there are pictures of two of the actresses sucking lollipops and sitting on a bench with their legs open. All of the pictures were taken inside of a high school, to go along with the “Glee” theme, and one of the actresses wore Hollywood’s version...
