Spare me the sappy love story details

Shannon Kuhfuss City Times If I get asked what plans I have for Valentine's Day one more time, I swear I'm going to track Cupid down myself and tell him where he can shove those arrows. I'm aware the only reason I'm being asked what I'm going to be doing is because the individual asking probably has some Cinderella-esque plans that they are just dying to rub in my face. Who...

Single awareness day rapidly approaches

Aurora Mckeehan City Times It's that time of year again. Hearts seem to be on steroids, the color red seems to exist in every direction, and couples seem to be doubling in number by the second. Well, that is of course if you are one of the single folks in the world at this point in time, it feels as though someone invented this holiday in order to make everyone aware of singleness....

Obama, finding solid truths in abstract ideals

Sonjiala Hotchkiss City Times "I would like to be the first black president," said the 8-year-old me to my mother. "Don't you want to leave open the option that someone could get there before you're old enough," was her coyly voiced reply. What's a kid left to do but cross her arms, sigh and give a vexed, "Yeah." Well, with President Barack Obama, the target of first black...

Looking toward the future

Romero, Angela

December 9, 2008

I wanted to share my thoughts as the Obama campaign and movement transforms itself into a presidential administration. I think we here in the United States, along with many around the entire world, are rightfully still celebrating this moment of amazing symbolic importance: the election of an African American as president of a nation that was built on the contradiction between...

Why so distant Californians? Let the bubble go!

LIVE AND LEARN By Luis Bahena I remember when I was in French class back in 2003 and how our French teacher would always tell us how Europeans and people here in California were very different. For one, Europeans were a little more social than Californians and they weren't afraid to speak with random strangers or give friendly warm smiles to passersby. The most memorable...

JOKE'S ON ME By Shannon Kuhfuss It was three years ago that I woke up one morning in my dorm room in Milwaukee, WI with a new idea. I hopped out of my dangerously tall loft bed, glanced out the window only to find three feet of snow. "What am I doing here?" I thought. I could learn the same things for my major in a much more aesthetically pleasing and climate friendly location....

ELECTION: Prop. 8 diverts from real issues

STATE OF AFFAIRS By Evonne Ermey When the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same sex marriage back in May, I was proud. I was proud to live in such a progressive state, one that valued and protected an individual's right to life, liberty and most importantly their right to pursue happiness. It felt like a day of celebration, but now, only a couple of months later, it seems the...

How Halloween has changed

Luis Bahena

October 20, 2008

LIVE AND LEARN By Luis Bahena With Halloween quickly approaching, time is running out in finding that perfect costume for the occasion. What to dress up for Halloween? Something scary? Something sexy? What about something silly or something scandalous? I remember when Halloween was about dressing up as something creepy and scaring our friends and running around amok. Collecting...
