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...

Letter to the editor

November 14, 2019

As an alumnus, some of you may smile as you remember a time when #CupOfJoBruno was a regular LMC dose of bitter-sweet wisdom growing up in Pittsburg. I’m glad you’re still here. For those of you who haven’t heard of me or read my work, Hi! It’s a pleasure. I hope you’re ready for a dose of ex...

Social media harms our love

Hazel Recinos, Staff Writer

November 14, 2019

Social media is known to be beneficial in ways that can inspire us to be creative. It can also be a great platform for connecting with people. But are we ready to admit that social media can also be harmful?  Relationships before social media had a much more simple approach, and chivalry, as we can ...

New bill sets better start-time standards for students

Hugo Calderon, @hugothegreat09

October 31, 2019

California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 328, Oct. 13, that makes California the first state to mandate later start times for middle and high school classes.

Marital rape is still rape

Dante Harrold, Staff Writer

October 31, 2019

Marital rape is justified by many as somehow being less egregious than someone being raped by a stranger, so long as a couple is married. This may sound laughable to many, given it seems obvious that a person forcing sex on his or her partner is an act of rape. It wasn’t until the 1970s that marital rap...

Image of beauty is toxic in more ways than one

Adriana Ivanoff, Staff Writer

October 31, 2019

In 2018, a three-year-old toddler was hospitalized after playing with a dollar store toy makeup kit. This toxic makeup caused such a horrendous reaction that the intense blistering around her mouth left her unable to eat, and her eyes were so swollen she could barely open them. The mortification lies...

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 ...

Fight the labels of our science

Adriana Ivanoff, Staff Writer

October 24, 2019

Sitting in my philosophy class it occurred to me that, among the sleepy-eyed students who only wanted a good enough grade to pass, I was one of the few who wanted to verbally debate everything I was hearing. It irked me greatly because we currently teach young minds that we are a product of repeated g...
