NASCAR and Mother Nature – like oil and water

Danny Penera

December 11, 2007

For sports fans there is no greater time of year than in the fall. Fall is the time where The World Series takes place, the basketball season starts and football teams beat up on each other. Who wouldn't love the idea of watching physically gifted athletes proving their merit against other gifted athletes both mentally and physically? However something has been bugging me...

Live and Learn – The ladies that cure my boredom

Luis Bahena

October 8, 2007

Luis Bahena City Times There are the moments in life when I'm really bored. I am so bored, that not even updating my MySpace page helps. It is in these moments of mundane workload and unproductive hours of sitting in my couch that YouTube cures my boredom better than Pepto-Bismol cures diarrhea. It was thanks to YouTube that I was reunited with my favorite comediennes such...

Viewpoint – Memories of Sunday mornings

Emily Pfaff

October 8, 2007

Emily Pfaff City Times "Good morning, good morning, it's time to wake up! It's time for every good little boy and girl to wake up!" My father would come clanging into my room, a tall German Irish man with dark features, broad shoulders, strong arms and a heavy footfall. Singing like a rooster, my fathers voice would carry throughout the house. "Good morning! Good morning!...

Viewpoint – Surviving the parking lot jungle

Benjamin Cruz

October 8, 2007

Benjamin Cruz City Times On a good day, I'll arrive to find campus parking within a minute, but most of the time I end up parking blocks away. Yes, I too join the mile away club on occasion. Unfortunately, as a member of the mile away club, I still walk across the jungle-like campus parking lots here at City College. It begins with spotting the early birds. These are the...

Death by propaganda

Emily Pfaff

September 24, 2007

VIEWPOINT Emily Pfaff Waiting in line at my local grocery, I glanced at the magazine rack. Amongst the usual defecation de jour was an update on Britney Spears. "Britney's sad comeback," read one, "fat cow" read another; the headlines featured snap shots of Britney performing her newest single, "Gimme More" in black lingerie, revealing a healthy body, although perhaps not...

Living among the ashes

Alissa Wisniewski

September 24, 2007

VIEWPOINT Alissa Wisniewski Smokers are people too. This thought was floating through my mind as I finished the three-minute trek to the smoking area where I work. Three minutes you say? Doesn't sound so bad. It's three minutes there and three minutes back, which takes six minutes off my ten-minute break, giving me four minutes to inhale a cigarette at lightning speed...

Thanks for pedestrian safety coverage

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

September 24, 2007

Dear Editor: Thanks to Shay Dewey for the great article she wrote entitled, "Better pedestrian safety is project's goal" in the September 11th edition of the City Times. While sad to announce the formal ending of the City College/East Village Pedestrian & Bicyclist Safety Project, due to the State Office of Traffic Safety grant to City College ending, much has been accomplished...

In the garden of eatin’

Lauren Ciallella

September 10, 2007

VIEWPOINT Lauren Ciallella Contributor If I were on death row I know what I would eat as my last meal - Greek chow-mien from Mr. Souvlaki's in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Partially because of the nostalgia it stirs from annual treks to this coastal, Greek neighborhood when I was younger, but mostly because of the miracle that appeared in the form of lamb, rice, feta and onions. Somehow...

One class closer to the finish line

Luis Bahena

September 10, 2007

LIVE and LEARN Luis Bahena City Times I always look forward to going back to school; it gives me a reason to get up in the morning instead of sleeping in, not to mention the act of working on my future. At the same time, there's a certain frustration that comes with going back. Like many students, I'm not eligible for financial aid, which can make going back somewhat of...
