A New Coat of Paint – All Over Everything Painting of bridge causes damage to CSUF faculty and staff property By ADAM S. LEVY

Daily Titan News Editor alevy@dailytitan.com

Major problems, such as costly property damage and violations of major environmental regulations, have beset the construction of a Metrolink port located at University Gables this past week. The 86-unit Buena Park housing community is owned by Cal State Fullerton and provides affordable housing options to faculty and staff. A construction crew spray painted the Metrolink bridge with a white

coat on the windy day of Sept. 30. Subsequently, particles of the paint floated and settled on vehicles at the east side of the complex. Residents soon noticed the thousands of dollars in damage from the wayward paint. “I noticed the car looked dirty and took it to the wash,” said Anthropology Professor and University Gables resident John Patton. “When I got home I noticed it was still covered – it was sprayed.” Patton lives in the community with his wife, Barbara Bowser, also an anthropology professor at CSUF, and their three children. He estimates damages from this incident come to around $15,000 when factoring in property damage and loss of time.

He said that other damages to him and his neighbors were not restricted to vehicles, but also lawn furniture, windows and plants were affected. Based on conversations with neighbors, Patton’s damages are consistent with the norm. Projecting the preliminary estimates on extensive damage suffered by his neighbors as well, restoration costs could approach over a million dollars. Another alleged act of negligence on part of the construction crew were violations of regional air quality rules 219 and 402, statutes that regulate the daily amounts of paint that can be sprayed based on it’s water content. Water-based paint can be sprayed at a rate of three gallons a day, while nonwater-based paint is

constrained to a gallon per diem. In an e-mail addressed to fellow tenants, Bowser wrote that the construction company “does not dispute that the over spraying occurred.” The construction crew declined to comment to the Daily Titan. Residents continue to hold a raised eyebrow towards how the situation could have been prevented. “One of the concerns when contracts are issued is that there are penalties if [the construction crew] is behind schedule,” Patton said. “They gambled to stay on schedule.” Bowser suggested that the construction crew was careless in knowingly operating under illegal and SEE HOUSING - PAGE 2

Attacks in schools can be traced back to the bullying of attackers

It’s been seven years since the Columbine shooting, but school massacres continue to be at the forefront of many educators’ and parents’ thoughts. In September, three East High teens in Green Bay, Wis., were formally charged with plotting to kill students in a Columbine-style shooting spree. Prosecutors said that the three boys, all victims of bullying, planned the botched shooting spree for two years by amassing a cache of guns and bombs as means for a violent retaliation against those who bullied them and for other school-related stresses. This recent incident has resparked conversation about violent responses to school oppressors. Earlier this year, five Kansas City teenagers were accused of plotting a similar attack on their school on the seventh anniversary of the Columbine attack. Recently, authorities apprehended a teenager, whom they described as being obsessed with the Columbine incident, for shooting his father and firing shots at his high school in North Carolina. Because of the school shootings, many schools have taken a proactive approach in their efforts to prevent Columbine-style incidents. Kevin Astor, a principal of Orangeview Junior High in Anaheim, said that violent student sprees could often be prevented through more personal interactions with “as SEE BULLIES - PAGE 2

Hispanic Community Leaders Discuss Barriers, Misconceptions

‘A Legacy of Prosperity and Empowerment’ for the Latino community By MICHAEL GARCIA

Daily Titan Staff Writer news@dailytitan.com

A panel of Hispanic leaders discussed a variety of subjects that pertain to Hispanic education on Friday. The event, “A Legacy of Prosperity and Empowerment in the Latino Community,” included panelists discussing how the CSU system has played an integral part in the education of many Hispanic students. The panel also discussed barriers that Latinos face in obtaining a higher education. The panel included Silas H. Abrego, the associate vice president for student affairs; John Echeveste, the co-founder of VEP, a marketing firm renowned for its work within the Hispanic community; Ricardo Lara, district director for California

Education is the main focus of university students.

Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez; Jose Solache, vice president of the Lynwood Unified School District Board of Education; and Celinda Vazquez, assistant director of UCLA’s State Governmental Relations. All the panelists are graduates of the CSU system. The panel’s keynote speaker was Rueben Martinez, an Orange County businessman who owns the Libreria Martinez Books and Art. Martinez, a former barber, was named “100 People Who Shaped Orange County” by The Orange County Register in 2005. The first topics discussed were the goal of higher education, Hispanics in the workforce and future trends in education. Abrego provided statistics from the 23 campuses. Minorities comprise 51 percent of the student body, and Hispanics account for more than of that percentage. Moreover, the CSU campuses award 16 percent of its bachelor’s degrees to Hispanics. Abrego also said it is reported

that for every 100 Hispanic elementary school student, 46 will graduate from high school. Out of those, 26 students will go on to college, and only eight will graduate with bachelors degrees. Out of those, only two will go onto pursue professional and graduate level degrees. The panel addressed a misconception that Hispanic parents do not feel that education is important. Vazquez described her upbringing that reinforced positive educational values from family and friends. “There is a misconception that [Hispanics] do not think that education is important because they themselves didn’t go on to a higher education, Vasquez said. I think that is the biggest misconception in our communities.” Lara feels that there is an overwhelming majority of underperforming schools in low income areas that Hispanics have unconventional SEE PANEL - PAGE 2

A metal box with a strong wooden arm connected by six strings sits behind glass in the Fullerton Museum Center. The Spanish guitar is a prototype for the Telecaster and Stratocaster guitars designed by Leo Fender. Together they represent, a musical map and timeline of Fender’s innovation. The timeless design of the instrument has created an iconic image according to Richard Smith, who was just a boy when Fender’s guitar sales made big news in Fullerton. “The equipment made rock ‘n’ roll possible,” said Smith, who is now the curator of the center and author of “Fender: A Sound Heard ‘Round the World.” The Fullerton Museum Center, exhibits many works crafted by the Fullerton born inventor who, in 1992, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just a year after his death. The latest Fender addition to the museum, “You won’t part with yours either: Robert Perine and Fender Guitars 1957-1969,” is a showcase of ads that coupled humor, irreverence and Fenders. “I think the stereotype for the electric guitar is that it’s revolutionary—that it’s cutting edge,” said Smith, who graduated from Cal State Fullerton. Helping to feed this revolution was Perine a photographer, artist, musician and partner in a Newport Beach advertising agency. Perine’s firm took on the Fender account in 1957 and the Ads Perine created put Fenders in the arms of unlikely musicians; a kid in a barbershop getting a military buzz, a skydiver seeking a sky high jam session and a skateboarder in deck shoes and corduroys. The ads “brought the guitar into

the mainstream,” Smith said. “It’s a musical instrument but it’s also a cultural statement like a cowboy hat or Levi’s. Perine’s now-vintage Nikon camera rests inside the gallery. Sitting just feet away is a moment he nabbed on film that defines the attitude his ads inspire; a surfer riding a wave and playing a Stratocaster. “Don’t drop it in the water,” Smith said of Perrine’s only request to the surfer. Only “one drop” splashed the electric guitar, Smith said, and the “rapid fire” photos are still around. As for the surfer, “They didn’t get his name,” Smith said. Smith recalls the era of Fender and Perine and he too was tangled in the history and lure of the strings. “I was a musician. I played professionally for years,” he said. In 1964, as a junior high student, he scored a tour of the Fender Factory on Sante Fe Avenue. “I was in awe. The guitar captured my imagination… the electric guitar was a really big deal when I was a kid.” As an adult, Smith strummed along, “I dropped out of college to play guitar but I went back when I realized the guitar wasn’t going to go that far.” Smith pairs the world of music with that of museums. Smith placed, in the exhibit, an electric indigo guitar plugged into a Frontomatic15R Fender AMP with a placard that reads: “Please touch! This fender classic ’60s Stratocaster is here for hands on music making…” For museum staff member James Kashiwada, a 20-year-old CSUF student, it is a focal point for museumgoers. “They all love the blue guitar in there. They just wail on it,” Kashiwada said. Visitors not only have the chance to pluck the blue beast in the center, they can also write down what they think in the guestbook nearby. “You won’t part with yours either: Robert Perine and Fender Guitars 1957-1969,” runs through December 27.

FOR THE RECORD In the ‘Message for Peace’ article published on Oct. 5, 2006 it was reported that the anti-hate rally was “rooted in an alleged hate crime on Aug. 9. A CSUF student allegedly attacked two young women, including anther CSUF student, for looking like lesbians, according to police reports.” The attack occurred on July 17 and the alleged attacker was arrested on Aug. 9.

teachers available, which contributes to the lack of higher education. “I think it is really in the hands of our elementary school teachers. I think they need to be proactive when it comes to mentorship to students,” Lara said. Solache elaborated on how Hispanics stress the importance of education by telling the audience that his father told him that he wanted him to work in an office with air conditioning – wearing a tie.

“The [Hispanic] parents today need to become more responsible, more committed to the young children. Today, children should know how to read and write, count before they began preschool and kindergarten. The perception is that parents think ‘oh they’re going to learn it in school,’ we’re going to leave it up to the teachers, that’s not necessarily true,” Martinez said. Echeveste, added to what Martinez said about the importance of reading. “Were in an entirely differ-

ent culture and generation, and it is our responsibility to ensure that they do that [read],” Echeveste said. “There hasn’t been shift in spite of the best efforts of educations, communities and corporations that are involved on the educational fronts, corporations that are providing scholarships,” Echeveste said. Another topic that the panel discussed is the lack of information that has hurt Hispanics from pursuing higher education.

A “recent study that I saw showed about 75 percent of [Hispanics] parents didn’t have access to information in getting assistance for getting their children into college, and that’s a real obstacle for students,” Echeveste said. Vazquez had a difficult process when she was trying to get into college and applying for financial aid having to do it on her own. Vazquez also said that another barrier in education is programs such as English as a Second Language, does not assist Hispanic students.

“Clearly, their intention was to continue the open-air spraying though they had known damage has occurred,” Bowser said. “They must have been operating in total disregard.” Another dark cloud hovering over the project is that these very same nonwater based issues had arisen before during a similar project that took place in Chino. While collecting estimates, Patton learned from the proprietor of one body shop that the business had over $50,000 in

business generated after the Chino construction. Bowser was unsure whether the transit authority had information detailing the previous incident. “They should be ensuring that when damage occurs, those methods should not be employed at the next site, [or] it is a failure on the part of Metrolink officials to provide adequate oversight and protection,” Bowser said. After the group of jarred residents contacted Buena Park officials last Thursday, the city acted quickly in arranging to properly compensate University Gables tenants who have

incurred damages as a result of the awry paint. Special forms have been dispersed to residents to account for the damages. Upon appointment to remedy the situation, Buena Park Public Works Director Jim Biery banned all forms of open-air spraying from the job site. “Biery basically told the construction crew ‘no more’ – he was very quick,” said Bowser. Alternative methods, such as working within a plastic enclosure with covered walkways or roller painting, will supplant the spray

technique. Inspectors affiliated with environmental agencies such as the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration and South Coast Air Quality Management district are slated to visit the work site in the upcoming week. “The city has acted responsively once the claim was made,” said Patton. Looming even larger are the longterm health hazards arising from the paint residue floating in the air. “We can get the paint off of our cars but what about our kids’ lungs?” Patton said. “We’re not happy.”

many specific kids in as many specific levels as possible.” “If you stay on top of the small issues, you can prevent a lot of the bigger issues from coming up,” Astor said Though much of the media focus is spotlighted on the students that violently retaliate through school

shootings, the recurrences of Columbine-style aggression have also sparked interest in the characteristics of the bullies and the aggressors themselves. “Bullies often become so cruel to others precisely because they are wrestling with their own demons, such as a lack of social skills or poor academic ability,” said Javette Hayes, assistant professor in

the department of human communication who specializes in interpersonal. “By acting out in ways that draw attention to vulnerable others, bullies may attempt to hide their own feelings of inadequacy,” Hayes said. Though the Columbine incident and others similar to it have caused an upheaval in perceptions of school

violence, many see a positive effect brought on by these traumatic events. Crisis interventionist and interpersonal communication major Tracy Brislawn said that though the Columbine incident was very tragic, it brought the effects of bullying and childhood intimidation into a more open and serious forum.

Students the ‘Target’ of New Program University and Target Corp. participate in pilot program targeted to business and communication students By Michael garcia

Daily Titan Staff Writer news@dailytitan.com

Some students are learning corporate education through a new program here on campus. Kathy Brzovic, professor in the College of Business and Economics, and Irene Matz, professor in the College of Communications, are participating in a new collaborative learning program. The program, called Building Learning Communities, gives students who are enrolled in the class six upper-division units in Advanced Business Communication and Business and Professional Communication. The program is a partnership with the Target Corporation. The objective of the partnership is to provide students with hands-on and real-life experience with a corporation that provides an organizational challenge. The students currently enrolled in the class had to go through an interviewing process by the instructors. Initially there were 100 students considered for this program. There were only 36 spaces available, so the instructors had to choose the students that they felt would best suit the program. Ultimately, 33 students were accepted in the program. “We didn’t choose the students on GPA. We just chose them on their interest, on their major area and then intuitively we chose students that would fit well within the program,” Matz said. The collaborating courses in this program are HCOM 333, Business and Professional Communication, and BUAD 301, Advanced Business Communication. Enrolled students attend a one-hour lab each week to work on group assignments, conduct research and videotape oral presentations. Students work in groups as a team to do various assignments such as collect and analyze data, conduct focus groups and interview professionals. The program took a year of planning before it was underway. Matz and Brzovic first wrote a proposal for the program to University President Milton Gordon in the fall 2005. The first contact that the professors made was with April Ueland, Group Campus Recruiter. Ueland

pitched the program to the Regional Vice President and Target sponsored the program to help the two colleges. One of Target’s goals was to improve their campus recruitment and university relations, so they asked that students of this program create a presentation on how Target can improve their campus recruitment. The students had the opportunity to visit one of Target’s distribution centers in Rialto, Calif., where they were given a tour of where they store all their products and how they distribute goods and products. Likewise, the students get the chance to meet with a retail manager and the manager gives the students a tour of the retail store. The retail manager gives the students a description of what their job consists of as well. Also, students get a first-hand look of how Target works as a system. The students see a compact disc about Target’s company. The CD shows a view from corporate headquarters and how all the divisions within Target work. Kristin Ramos, a student in the program, expressed how happy she was about being part of the program because of what she hopes to take from the experience. “I was really excited about getting chosen, because once I found out about it in the interview what the class was all about, it sounded like a really good opportunity,” Ramos said. “There are five people in my group, which I have an amazing group. I’m really excited about them; we all have such good ideas and were all real excited about, which makes the program that much better.” She said that her group is working on conducting a survey to get an idea of what college students think of campus recruitment. Ramos said that she has really benefited from the teamwork aspect of the project. It helps her understand the importance of working with others in a group to accomplish the same goal. “It gives the students the opportunity to take the concepts of what we are talking about in our classes; to apply that to outside industry. Target is also 29 on the Fortune 500 listing,” Matz said. “Target gives something like five percent of their budget to community outreach, they give education K-12, they have donation boxes for people to donate money to various education outreach programs, so they’re devoted to education,” Brzovic said. “They’re not only going to recruit their future employees from campuses like ours, but live in a society of people who they want to be educated. So, they

give back to the whole society I think,” Brzovic said. The final program evaluation will be a competitive project that Target is asking the students to work on at the end of the semester. The students will have to give a presentation of the questionnaire of campus recruitment in front of two representatives from Target. The representatives, Senior Vice President Bob Thompson and Human Resources Director of Region 200 Alison Blackwell will judge the presentations. The deans of the College of Business and College of Communications will be present as well. There will be an awards ceremony held once the presentations are over. Prizes will be given out to the first and second place groups. “I was impressed with the energy the students had. I am looking forward to December when each group of students give us t h e i r recommendation on how we can better communicate with college students,” Ueland said. “It is great anytime we can provide a learning opportunity for the students to what they have learned in the classroom to a real world setting,” Ueland said. Currently, this is a one-time program and the instructors are still undecided as to whether or not it will be offered again. They want to evaluate and see how the pilot program works out. Once it is over they will assess the program and see if they want to offer it once a year. The professor indicated that this type of program takes extensive planning and work and a class like this could only be offered once a year due to the planning and organization that is involved.

OPINION Titan Editorial

Providing insight, analysis and perspective since 1960

It’s a Gamble

Gambling used to be considered a lowdown vice, only to be partaken by illicit degenerates doing amoral things. No more. Since the advent of the Internet and televised poker, games of chance have fallen back into vogue as a younger generation has been force-fed the river, point spreads and doubling down. While we here at the Daily Titan do not turn our nose up at those with vices, (one of our very own editors is a losing wager away from his next Gambler’s Anonymous meeting). As a community voice responsible for upholding social standards, we must point out that taken out of moderation, even a little harmless gambling can soon swelter into a voracious beast as quickly as it takes one to utter the magical words “double or nothing.” Boiled down to its core, gambling fills a void for those who abuse it in much the

same way as alcohol or drugs do. Regardless of if you’re betting on Texas Hold ‘Em, the color red, Santa’s Little Helper or the hapless Dodgers, the chance of winning free money fills that insatiable need, as would a shot of this or a hit of that. It’s not even the winning or losing of it, it’s the action and the buzzed sensation one gets on the verge of a big swing. With online sports books, weekly home games and many local casinos less than 25 minutes away, CSUF students have a plethora of available options to turn to when they need action. The real key is how we manage ourselves, our money and our emotions when immersed in the dicey world of free money and lost wages. Putting a few bucks on something always makes it a little intriguing, but don’t get too close to the flames of gambling, as you might get burned – and actually like it.

There are no friends at cards or world politics. Finley Peter Dunne

There is Nothing Personal in Politics By James Thompson Daily Titan Staff Writer opinion@dailytitan.com

With friends like these, who needs enemies? Republican Katherine Harris, the person who had an instrumental role in the Florida voter recount fiasco that eventually led to George W. Bush winning the election is now running for Senate. But she’ll have to do it without the support of the Bush family. I’m sure that she’s asking herself “Where’s the love?” But what did she expect? It’s politics. Politicians win seats by any means necessary, even if it means stepping on those who helped them get to where they are. Dog eat dog, if you will. Harris was once Florida’s top election official who, along with Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, helped President

Bush carry Florida and with it the presidency. During the Bush versus Gore 2000 election, Harris did not allow Palm Beach County and other Florida counties to extend their deadlines to Friday when absentee ballots were due, which left a lot of votes uncounted. Many Democrats deemed this unfair, since Palm Beach County is a democratic-leaning county and would have given Al Gore the state of Florida. In essence, Harris had a crucial role in Bush winning the election. In 2002 Harris ran for the U.S. House of Representatives in a heavily republican district and won. Maybe that was her payback. It’s 2006 and she is running for Florida���s second Senate seat, but is getting no backing from Jeb or George. Many may be baffled at this recent snubbing because Bush is supposedly known to be loyal to those that

stand by him. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who was appointed by Bush, has been a Bush man since Bush was Texas Governor. Condoleezza Rice was promptly promoted defending Bush during the Sept.11 commission. Some say they were the most humiliating hits of her career. So why did they recently turn their back on Harris? She did her deed for the Bush family. Why are they not supporting her? It’s politics. Phillip Gianos, professor of political science at Cal State Fullerton, said the Republican Party thinks she doesn’t have a chance at winning. “It’s a dramatic form of what occasionally happens in politics,” Gianos said. CSUF Political Science Professor Steven Stambough said that Harris is way too ideological a candidate to support. It’s been reported that Harris has

been involved in bribery scandals. It’s been reported that she spent taxpayer’s money to renovate her home. It’s been reported that she used taxpayer’s money to take trips around the world. Not to mention the recount scandal. She is not well liked. Why would the Republican Party waste time and money on someone as “polarizing” as Harris? She could damage other GOP candidates in Florida and all over the nation. It’s just too risky. She knows as well as anyone that politics is a shady business; she was involved in the recount scandal, so she shouldn’t be surprised. I’m sure Harris got her payoff somehow. I don’t take it as disloyalty on the part of the Bush family. The name of the game is win and they cannot do it with her in the game, so they take her out. That’s politics.

Justice and Protection for Our Society By Michael Garcia Daily Titan Staff Writer opinion@dailytitan.com

The death penalty is justifiable in the criminal punishment process. Convicted Aryan Brotherhood leaders Barry Mills and Tyler Bingham should be put on California’s death row and be executed. The two have had a long history of violence. According to a previous case with the Aryan brothers in late July, the two were linked to or involved with 17 murders dating back to 1979. They also wreaked violence while they were incarcerated at the Supermax federal prison in Florence, Colo. As a result two black inmates were killed. Thus, the Aryan Brotherhood have national ties that enable them to initiate vio-

lence in different areas across the country. These individuals epitomize the phrase “menace to society.” The only way we can alleviate potential problems with these two men is to permanently remove them from society. California first authorized the death penalty in 1872. In 1972 the California Supreme Court declared the death penalty cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the state constitution. The California legislature reinstated the death penalty in 1977 under certain conditions, which included first degree murder and murder of multiple victims. Since October 1994 lethal injection in California is the sole method of execution, according to the Web site deathpenalty.org.

It is estimated that the average amount taxpayers spend on a prisoner each year is $34,000, according to a recent study by The Economist. Moreover, it is estimated that 172,000 inmates pack California’s 33 prisons and 12 community correctional facilities, which are only meant to house 90,000 prisoners. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has called upon a special session of the state legislature to discuss his request for almost $5.8 billion of public money to be pumped into the prison system. In contrast, support around the world for the death penalty has fallen over the past two decades. Even nations such as Mexico and Liberia have recently abolished the death penalty, according to American

Press Inc. The punishment needs to fit the crime and if someone murders someone he or she should be put to death for it. In essence, this is equal treatment. Likewise, prisons are becoming overcrowded so we should devise a way to remedy the situation. One way would be to check every prisoner’s track record and assess the case and implement capital punishment on them. Similarly, in my opinion if someone kills in a premeditated manner I think that the convicted should automatically be put to death.

Titans Hold Off Highlanders in Big West Win Men’s soccer gets past UC Riverside, 4-2 in a Big West matchup BY JONATHAN SAAVEDRA Daily Titan Staff Writer sports@dailytitan.com

Cal State Fullerton’s men’s soccer team (5-6-1, 1-3-0) picked up it’s first Big West Conference victory as they defeated the UC Riverside Highlanders 4-2 at Titan Stadium on Saturday. “It’s a great relief,” said CSUF forward Eugene Brooks. “I think we deserved to win earlier during the year and it just wasn’t there. But today we came out, we knew what we had to do, and we weren’t going to come off the field without anything else.” Two of the Titans’ three losses in conference matches came in overtime, one of which was a doubleovertime game. “We were very hungry,” CSUF Head Coach Bob Ammann said. “After each and every conference game obviously there was disappointment, but we took some things away from it. We realized that in each of the games we could’ve won. We very easily could be top of the league right now.” Fullerton midfielder Skyler Thuresson led the Titans with two goals. The first came in the 24th minute as Thuresson fired a pass from Gabriel Farfan. “I just came out thinking I’m going to do whatever it takes, and if it’s scoring two goals, I love it, but just whatever it takes to get the ‘W,’” Thuresson said. Brooks added a goal in the 33rd minute as he got a long pass from Amir Shafii and split the defense to give the Titans a 2-0 advantage. “It feels good,” Brooks said of his

By Karl Thunman/Daily Titan CASHING IN – Omar Rodriguez [#17], Eugene Brooks [#13], Gabriel Farfan [#15] and Skyler Thuresson [#9] celebrate after Brooks scored his eighth goal. league-leading eighth goal. “I wish I could’ve put away a couple more, I had some easy chances. I just think whatever I can do to help my team, that’s all I’m worried about now.” The Highlanders came back in the second half and overcame a 2-0 deficit with goals from Andrew Villalobos in the 55th minute and Michael Galland in the 61st minute.

The scenario was similar to the match between the two teams last season as the Titans had a comfortable 2-0 lead only to have UC Riverside score three times in the final 13 minutes to defeat the Titans 3-2. That wasn’t the case this time as the tie would only last for 16 seconds before Thuresson scored the game winning goal off a header from

Brooks to put the Titans ahead 3-2. “The one thing that Skyler brings is an enormous amount of energy, constantly, and fortunately tonight he was able to put that energy into the back of the net,” Ammann said. Gabriel Farfan added an insurance goal in the 77th minute to put CSUF on top 4-2. Ammann said that after the tie,

scoring another two goals for the victory was “definitely a momentum builder.” The Titans travel to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo on Wednesday. “It’s just like gas for a fire,” Thuresson said. “We’re hoping we can fuel off this and take it into our next game. We’re putting our last three losses behind us and starting fresh.”
