Editorial Board and Spencer Batute

February 7, 2020

Swine flu. Ebola. MERS. All global health scares, mucking up mounds of panic in countries all over the world. What’s more, all are examples of disease which have caused many to display xenophobic sentiment toward infected populations.

Healthcare in America needs a revamp

Editorial Board

December 5, 2019

Healthcare in the united states of America should not be as expensive as it is. Forcing people to pay the funds that they currently do is hilariously outrageous and expecting the middle class to be able to have the same funds as the higher class for lower quality health care is unfair, inhumane and a ...

The Brown Act is essential

Editorial Board

November 22, 2019

Paying a stipend to student government members who do hours of extra work to ensure the best representation for Los Medanos College is not a bad thing. It was not wrong for the Associated Students of LMC to try to allocate themselves stipends last month, as stipends have been implemented b...

We need gun control now

Krys Shahin, @Krysshah

November 14, 2019

With the most recent school shooting in America being Nov. 14 at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, we need to take action against guns now. A 15-year-old should not be able to get a weapon and take the lives of their peers. California is the state with the most strict gun laws, but clearly, we are n...

November 7, 2019

California is burning, millions are choking in New Delhi, and coastal cities across the world are crumbling away to rising sea levels. The warning signs are here: climate change is upon us.

Thanking those who paid the cost

Charles Reed, Staff Writer

October 24, 2019

Walking through the parking lot the other day, I spotted a bumper sticker that made me think.  It said, “If you’re thankful for your freedom, thank a vet.”  Since then, I’ve started contemplating what being thankful to those who serve in our military actually means. For starters, we ...

Do not condone violence

Krys Shahin, @Krysshah

October 18, 2019

In a time where we can see drastically graphic images, even by accident, on social media or watch movies with just a little too much violence integrated into them, we typically do not expect the President of the United States to entertain such content.  Recently, an edited video clip from 2014...

Lets keep things secular

Dante Harrold, Staff writer

October 11, 2019

Every person has a right to secular government just as much as they have the right to a Democratic government. It is in fact mandated under the First Amendment of the United States that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. Under the current Administration, government of...

For a true democracy, learn

Katie Loughran and Krys Shahin

October 4, 2019

Democracy dies in the darkness, and the light that journalism shines on the democratic process is being rapidly snuffed out by a president who can’t handle the truth. When our country has a president who is outwardly attacking the press, he not only threatens the integrity of his presidency but democracy...

Tax and regulate vaping

Krys Shahin, @Krysshah

September 20, 2019

The vaping epidemic that’s taken over the world today needs drastic action to end it. The irony about vaping is that it was originally intended to stop people from smoking in general, and yet it’s actually getting younger people addicted and killing those who vape at a quicker pace than those wh...

Look again, (im)possible

Adriana Ivanoff, Staff Writer

September 13, 2019

The word Impossible is a trick of the eyes and the sound within your heart as you tell yourself you can’t. The limits of society are the limits we tend to have ingrained within ourselves in the process of indoctrination. We’ve been taught to believe that higher education can change centuries of ...
