Water protection is critical

With groundwater sources across the state sinking by more than a foot a year and reports of wells going dry, the Groundwater Protection Act was finally approved, which is good news. Its effective date, however, is not immediate enough to help address our drought, and is somewhat dependent on various municipal legislative bodies. The legislative package requires water basin managers throughout the state... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Support the troops – when will the slogan become a reality? Recently I saw a three-tour Afghanistan veteran with a sign that said “Veteran – help me find a job.” I watched while hundreds of cars, many with “Support the Troops” bumper stickers and American flag decals on their cars went by. Not one person stopped. My girlfriend and I talked to him – he says this... 

Commentary: Bill Nye the ‘all-of-a-sudden political’ Guy

<i>Commentary</i>: Bill Nye the ‘all-of-a-sudden political’ Guy
Christian Orozco, Web Editor Science is a wonderful tool to determine, question and hypothesize different questions we have about Earth and the universe. This is why we learn about different sciences in grade school all the way up to meeting general education requirements in college. Those who excel in this area of education go on to do wonderful things and discover facts that many of us could not.... 

Paycheck Fairness Act necessary

Last week Republicans failed to push forward the Paycheck Fairness Act for the third time, possibly extending the gender pay gap and further hurting women in the workforce. The Paycheck Fairness Act, approved by the House of Representatives in 2009 and supported by the Obama administration, aims to close the pay gap by many measures, including encouraging employers to comply when workers have grievances...

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I am absolutely disgusted with the latest GOP vote to restrict benefits to veterans. This is another part of an ongoing attack on veterans by people who claim the “patriotic” high ground and who profess to be concerned for human rights and dignity. It is beyond comprehension that people can vote to send soldiers to war (none of their own family, of course), and then vote to limit benefits... 

KFC special: Disgusting as usual

Body image has always been a big issue when it comes to women in the media. Whether they are models in the spotlight for their appearance – or politicians in the spotlight because of their savvy words and intellect – they can’t seem to escape scrutiny and objectification. Even Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most politically powerfully women in the nation, is still subject to this kind of sexism. And... 

Shutdown ends, problems persist

After 16 days, the government shutdown has finally ended with Congress giving final approval to a budget compromise. Yet it seems that just as effects were beginning to trickle down, citizens were barely starting to take notice. The issue is one that all citizens need to pay attention to, not just government employees and politicians. Talks to craft a deal that would end the government shutdown came... 

Students disagree with government shutdown

Alison Rodriguez Staff Writer Fourteen University of La Verne students shared their opinion on the government shut down earlier this week. The overall opinion of students was that Congress has gone too far in shutting down the government. Congress has ceased funding many federal operations and placed more than 800,000 workers on furlough due to the fact that they have been unable to agree on a budget... 

Biggest U.S. problem is at home

The phrase “everything’s bigger in Texas” refers to Texas’ love for things to be bigger, but if that phrase were to pertain to the world the phrase would be “everything’s bigger in America.” The food, the cars, the people and most importantly the income gap between the rich and the poor. Everything is bigger. Americans are losing their jobs, their homes and their money, but how is it...
