  • Supreme Court did the right thing

    In response to the July 6 letter to the editor, “Court's decision negates power of vote.” It can be unsettling to see the power of a vote reversed, but would the letter writer agree that interracial marriage in the U.S. should be illegal as...

    In Theory: Evangelicals for immigration reform

    Burroughs is again Crescenta Valley's nemesis in volleyball
    BURBANK — For a number of years prior to 2010, the Arcadia High boys' volleyball team was a nemesis for the Crescenta Valley squad. For the past three years, however, Burroughs has replaced Arcadia as the Falcons' top adversary in the Pacific...

    I was dismayed to hear the temporary city clerk, Zizette Mullins, admit during the candidate’s forum that it would be a conflict of interest for a clerk candidate to pay another candidate to work on her campaign. Campaign filings are public...

     Start the Presses: Brown-baggin' it
    On a strangely cool August day several years ago, I walked into a New York City classroom to begin my first day of classes at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. Inside that small, overheated room were a dozen other students, and the...
  • Should BYU's Davies have been suspended?

    Brigham Young University recently suspended its star basketball center, Brandon Davies, for violating the college's strict Honor Code. Davies admitted to officials that he'd had pre-marital sex with his girlfriend, an Arizona State University freshman....
  • Did Bryan Griem mean to be mean?

    I am writing in response to Bryan Griem's take on the In Theory topic on June 17 “Does the budget need a dose of morals?” He suggests that the moral beliefs of the office holders weigh in on their stances. I totally agree. He further...
