Pat Martucci

November 17, 2016

DEAR EDITOR, Jack Williams was one of the original instructors in the Electrical and Instrumentation Technology (ETEC) program here at Los Medanos College.

Textbook prices are ridiculous

Gianna Carpino

November 1, 2016

The top thing that irritates me about college is the price of textbooks. Why is it that about three textbooks cost almost or equal to the amount of college tuition for one semester?

If these crimes happened the first time, shouldn’t we up our protection to prevent it from happening again? Just looking at ...

Info could be easier to get

Claire Graham

October 10, 2016

I think Los Medanos College should provide students with a better way to access information about events happening on campus. I don’t think most students know half of the events or different programs that are available to them. I often find out about events after they have happened or didn’t kno...

Letter to the Editor: Assumptions

RC Kubota

February 24, 2016

With thanks to Professor Zimny for starting us thinking about “unacknowledged assumptions,” I’d like to share a personal experience that demonstrated the real-life importance and pertinence of what one might have considered an esoteric, philosophical concept.
