Make an informed decision

For the upcoming election on Tuesday the Campus Times editorial board has some recommendations on a few ballot measures. We recommend “yes” votes on Proposition 20, and “no” votes on propositions 23 and 27. With regard to Proposition 19, we want to be sure voters collect all of the facts before issuing a yes or no vote in a knee-jerk decision. The California State Constitution requires... 

Commentary: Proposition 19 has major flaws

<i>Commentary</i>: Proposition 19 has major flaws
Carly Hill, Arts Editor The smell of marijuana is in the air, or at least the proposal of it, due to hit voter ballots next week. Whether or not the law passes, proponents and opponents are agreeing on one thing: the bill is flawed. The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, backed by prominent marijuana activist Richard Lee, an Oaksterdam horticulture teacher, may have started off with good... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Last week’s editorial on the Opinions page (“ULV should consider green energy,” Oct. 22) was very timely. While that article was being written, the University was in the process of submitting an application for an energy grant that will, if successful, allow us to pilot a photovoltaic project on campus. Facility and Technology Services has been exploring solar alternatives for about... 

Stop the mudslinging

Mudslinging has always been an interesting side effect of elections. Commercials are broadcast smearing each candidate, exposing the skeletons in their closets. Which happens every time an election is about to occur. Which brings us to the California elections this year. Smear campaigns have taken on a new life in this election. The majority of commercials and advertisements are not advocating the... 

ULV should consider green energy

With the world seeking ways to be more eco-friendly, the University of La Verne has started initiating things to lessen our impact on the environment. For example, the Campus Center for its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design earned a rating of silver, and the dining hall has gone tray-less. In addition the Associated Students of the University of La Verne has provided re-usable water bottles... 

Call me a crazy Catholic

Call me a crazy Catholic
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief I am a devout conservative Catholic and have been for the past 19 years today. I was baptized a Maronite Catholic at nearly 4 months old and have grown in my faith ever since then. Throughout the years, I have been taught about what the religion believes and I have also done my own research where the teachings lacked. Yes, the Catholic Church seems to always be in... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, In response to last week’s editorial about the Spotted Pig on the Opinions page (“This little piggy has a problem,” Oct. 15), I would like to say that that campaign is not merely an effort to get your pocket change. It is about getting students to give back. It’s an endeavor to instill in us a practice of giving that can impact our world. I believe helping those around us who are... 

Helping our soldiers at home

It is important to learn from mistakes. When a light socket electrocutes you, it would be smart to not touch the socket again. In terms of helping soldiers to adapt to life after war, the United States has latched onto an electrical circuit and is frying. Look back to the Vietnam War. Soldiers came back with mental illnesses that had not even been diagnosed before and were left to fend for themselves... 

Trust us, it gets better

Bullying has become an epidemic in the United States. Recently this has come to the forefront of the media with the large number of suicides in the past few weeks. All of those who took their lives were homosexual youths. Bullying in itself is already a problem but when a homophobic sentiment is added it only makes matters worse. Students need to stop bullying one another. The tragic stories of Tyler... 

Commentary: Journalism is still alive

<i>Commentary</i>: Journalism is still alive
Carly Hill, Arts Editor People tell me all the time that journalism is dead. That there is no possible way to make it in a digital world with a print background. And you know what I have to say to that? Well, most of the time it involves a lot of yelling, perhaps some crying and a few curse words strung in for added effect. Which brings me to last weekend, when I added another weapon to my arsenal...
