Each election cycle we are confronted with closed streets for paving ONLY in the three months before election vote time. Watch the street paving frenzy come to a screeching halt the day of the election. Where are these workers for the preceding eighteen months? Who is paying them during their time o...

I wrote this in response to a letter published on October 27th titled “Training is a waste of my time.” Dear TP, Title IX is by no means a waste of time. If you had actually completed your training correctly, you would have watched several videos, many of which were not simply “Don’t a...

I am an Argentinian-American dual citizen, and like many first-generation Americans, my first language was Spanish. I learned English in the San Fran- cisco public school system, and speak Spanish at home. Multilingual education was essentially outlawed in California public schools in 1998,...

Dear time wasters, The Title IX training makes about as much sense as having people watch videos to prevent bullying; bullies will still bully. Why don't you guys make freshman do this or people under 21? This is an insult. By the way, how do you feel about people who HAVE been victims...

There are a ton of candidates and ballot measures vying for our attention this election season. But one in particular Proposition 55 deserves a closer look, and a yes vote. While it may seem that Prop 55, the California Children’s Education and Health Care Protection Act, would only impact K-1...

Filed under Features, Letter to Editor

Andrea Dupree’s article about the Corinthian Colleges (May 14, 2015) was interesting; however, she left out an important component to the story.

Laura Chapman’s article “The Cost of Legalizing Marijuana” fails to ask the questions “why?” and “Why does it matter?” What is the aim of this change? It seems Ms. Chapman is inferring that money, revenue, or wealth is the final aim, but wealth can never be a final aim. Wealth is a means,...
