Bush Sr. leaves behind unlikely legacy

Elizabeth McLaurin

December 5, 2018

It’s probably safe to assume that when news broke of former president George Herbert Walker Bush’s passing, the overall population of Millennials in this country barely took notice. And really, why would we? A one-term president who succeeded Ronald Reagan and preceded Bill Clinton — that...

A journey in stoicism

A journey in stoicism

Dale Satre, @DaleSatre

November 29, 2018

Life is noisy. If this year means anything for me, it’s appreciating that as much as I tend to overanalyze and over-plan things, there are some things I just can’t calculate for. For everything else, there is stoicism. The modern definition of “stoic” means being indifferent to emotions, but the an...

As the semester comes to a close, many events have occurred that affect our lives, one way or another. For many students here at Los Medanos College, we came here with a goal of graduating and taking on the world. The underlying theme to being a student is to reach our full potential.

Hugo Calderon, @HCAL09

November 29, 2018

Football is one of the biggest sports in the United States. It has even become a Thanksgiving tradition in some families to watch Thursday night football while enjoying their dinner. Football has been around for so long it would be hard to imagine having a society in which it didn't exist. However, f...

November 15, 2018

Butte County and much of Southern California is on fire, and with devastation also comes the side effects of a massive wildfire. Aside from the obvious, things like property damage and a drain on resources, people have been killed or injured. As of today, the number of victims have been estimated at ...

Opioid crisis lurks in the shadows

Dale Satre, @DaleSatre

November 8, 2018

The opioid crisis took a backseat in the recent political discussions, but it is a demon that has by no means gone away. More than 115 people in the United States die every day due to overdosing on opioids, and not enough is being done about it. Opioid misuse and addiction is a serious national concern from a...

New coalition to be reckoned with

November 8, 2018

In what seemed like an election that would never arrive, the 2018 midterm elections are finally in the books. It was anti-climatic as the Democratic Party took control of the House of Representatives as predicted. The Republicans maintained control of the Senate as predicted as well. As the political pundi...

Hockey, more than just a sport

Hugo Calderon, @HCAL09

November 1, 2018

Hockey is a sport that if you’re not into, chances are you barely know what it’s all about. At least that was the case for me. Hockey was something I knew about but never looked into. Recently I was able to attend a San Jose Sharks game at the SAP center. It was truly an eye opening experience. ...

The 14th Amendment revisited

Nick Campbell, @nicky_charles

November 1, 2018

     President Trump, in a desperate attempt to fire up his base ahead of the midterms, has now found a new boogeyman to focus on. The caravan of migrants didn’t work, so he’s turned to the outrageous idea of repealing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. This would impact so-called “ancho...
