SHARING THE BOUNTY Stockton-based Harvester Farms built to provide consumable resources, educate public in local history By Killian Barnhart Managing Editor

Elzo Williams is one man, but he hopes his ambitions and dreams of social entrepreneurship will take off. Williams, a Delta College student, built Harvester Farms in 2015 at the edge of Stockton with plans of creating an abundance of food to support his goal of donating to the local food shelters and pantries. The project started as a small door-todoor operation, where Williams would ask various fruit-tree owners if he could pick and donate unwanted fruits. “We had no clue what we were doing when we started. We had this passionate dream, mostly mine, but my wife and my daughter have bought into it and a lot of other people have who have who’ve learned about it,” said Williams. “We wanted to prevent waste in the yards and get the food to the food banks and food pantries. The only way to make that a self-sustainable practice for someone who has to work, is to find a way to generate revenue,” One small bump in William’s dream - who was already working full time for Comcast - would also need to take the

the canning industry and was called “The Tomato Queen.” “We want to teach people about the history that our community has with agriculture. We invented tractors, we were the first in the nation to grow tomatoes that otherwise only grew in Italy, because of Tillie Lewis. A lot of the names at Delta students have no clue, it’s just a name,” said Williams. However, Williams’ ambitions don’t stop with revitalizing history. He wishes to fence in his fields, plant seasonal crops for donation, education and sale, develop a pumpkin patch, plant a corn maze, create a petting zoo and expand the tonnage he can donate. He hopes to be able to sell his fruits, homemade pies, stinging nettle tea and jarred honey from specialized flow hive. A flow hive specially designed to extract honey safely from the nest like a soda fountains tap. “Everything we grow on the farm, unlike the stuff we’re already picking from people’s homes, is intended to be for educational purposes, and when it’s producing the product whether it’s strawberries or pumpkins whatever, then the purpose becomes to generate revenue for our cause,” said Williams.

Stockton City Hall to move By Austin Nordyke Senior Staff Writer

The Stockton City Council has voted to buy a new City Hall building. The current historic building has been an important landmark for Stockton since 1926. Part of that is dealing with the issues that come from taking care of a building 91-years old. A building that predates modern necessities in a workplace like Internet or wheelchair access could not foresee the demand. Retroactive implementation may not be a feasible option. The hazardous building materials that were used at the time of the building’s original construction make opening walls and renovations very dif-

ficult and expensive. “Renovating historic City Hall and constructing a new annex behind it to accommodate current space needs would ssbe cost prohibitive with an estimated expense of $50-60 million to design and construct the improvements,” according to a City of Stockton Agenda Item on the move. Many offices are housed at a second location, 400 E. Main Street, as part of an eight-year lease. The lease has about five years left until it ends according to the city. The new location will be the Waterfront Office Towers at 501 and 509 Weber Avenue. This new site is three minutes away from the current location

across Weber Point. The purchase of the Waterfront Towers will allow all branches of City Hall to be moved to one site. The cost of the acquisition would be $13.6 million. This will be cheaper in the long run than attempting to renovate the historic City Hall building and continuing to lease the Main Street site. CEO of the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce Doug Wilhoit trusts this decision and expects it to stimulate growth along the waterfront. “It’s a prudent move for the city of Stockton,” said Wilhoit. At the earliest, relocating could begin in about a year according to Community Relations Officer Connie Cochran.

Sept. 19 marked the beginning of the bi-annual three-day Club Rush. Many new clubs and old clubs made an appearance along with multiple community organizations, some clubs, like the Chess Club also had interactive presentations. A common message between the clubs was all want to help members be successful, whether for themselves or for the community. A handful of clubs promote religion on campus and are open to every student. The Christians on Campus booth was recognizable with a huge tent with a table filled with New Testament Bibles, that the club gives out to every student passing by or for members to go to group studies. Christian Club has been around for four years. The club meets twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to noon. President Sam Ho said if people can’t attend meetings members are able to schedule one-on-one appointments. One reason students don’t join a club is because of busy schedules. It may feel like a hassle to attend. Public Relations for Society of Women Engineers Kimberly Estipona said at the beginning of every semester all members of the club put together their schedule and decide what would be a great time for meetings. “The biggest thing I think all our members agree with is people has a misconception about the club, just because it is name Society of Women engineers, people think it’s only for women or only for engineering majors we are really open to anyone who wants to join,” Estipona said. Many clubs struggle with the fact that just because a club has a certain name it’s only meant for that specific group. For example the Black Student Union, Latino Student Union, and Asian Student Union, anyone can join these clubs you don’t have to be the title of the club. Though the event is called Club Rush, many organizations are very involved in the campus such as TOLA. The group has worked in Stockton for nine weeks volunteering and are trying to recruit members. “We are trying to develop leaders in Stockton,” Organizing Fellow Codi Haighey said. Organizing Fellow Tahara Reynolds said another way the group recruits people is by going to high schools and some classes to do presentations. There were also Academic Societies such as Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor society, this club has been around for a long time. The members say it was created around the 1960s. Though this is a club it is also invite only, based on factors such as grade-point average. Christine Scheuermann, fundraising coordinator, and Lisa Jewett, activities coordinator, both said this is a club that promotes a positive environment. This club is also very accommodating with time. Member Stephen Johnson said that though he can’t attend meetings as often he is still a very active member within the society. Club Rush ended Sept. 21, but it will be back for the spring semester.

o you think climate change directly affects you? While a myth in some people’s eyes, recent natural disasters have struck many parts of the world and now more than ever people need to realize the catastrophic consequences of living a resource-draining lifestyle. From hurricanes Harvey and Irma to Katia and Jose to the 8.2-earthquake that shook Mexico, the amount of natural disasters seems never ending. Not only that, according to the San Diego Tribune, forest fires have spread rapidly nearly 24,000 acres throughout California and volcanoes located in Italy and Russia are awakening from a dormant period with violent explosions, according to the National Geographic News. Enough is enough. I know everyone believes they are helping the Earth by simply recycling more and switching to solar panels on their roofs but it’s without a doubt time to take more drastic measures. “As people we pollute and we take the Earth for granted so of course the Earth will react to it.

Humans need to be more conscious of what we’re doing,” said Delta student, Gina Abarca. Every country, especially the U.S., needs to begin implementing policies that drive solutions to reduce and end climate change. Our government needs to start requiring companies to invest more money into renewable energies and offer incentives and refunds for civilians who purchase renewables. On top of that, higher taxes should be placed on gas and oil and a carbon tax should be enacted based on how much people pollute. It’s not enough to just start using reusable bags every time you shop at Trader Joe’s, Martha. And I know what you’re all thinking: we’ll all die before the Earth does and let’s leave this problem for our children and their children to figure out, but Mother Nature is finally keeping us all on the hook for our excessive lifestyles. How many more lives need to be lost before we start changing? Many of us may scoff at our next door neighbor who drives a Prius but no one was joking when 70,000 people were left homeless and 70 were killed in Texas at the hands of Hurricane Harvey. Even with all of the chaos that has been unleashed on the Earth, many

people still doubt if climate change is real or they’ll argue that it’s simply too late to make a change. Many will say that the evidence backing climate change isn’t substantial enough. Trump has argued that the U.S. should withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord because we aren’t getting any benefits from it. “I don’t think it’s a good idea. I know Trump sees it in a business way, but we shouldn’t see earth in a money perspective,” added Abarca. However, the atmosphere and oceans have warmed up in a way that makes us find anything below 75 degrees chilly. The rising sea levels and the negative impacts on the Arctic are head turning. Others will also argue that we need to focus on more pressing issues like improving the economy and keeping the unemployment rate down but wind turbine technician is actually currently the fastest growing job in America according to Forbes, so what reason do we have to not start integrating these solutions into our government and lifestyles? We can and will stop the heightened death of our generous planet Earth if we wake up and stop ignoring Mother Nature’s cries for help.

What’s the problem with drivers today?


ike many of my fellow Delta college students, I commute to school and it’s a hassle when half the population here in Stockton don’t know how to drive. So is the state of California just handing out driver’s licenses like free Bibles in the quad nowadays? For those of you that ride the bus and think that none of this applies to you, think again you’re also part of the problem too. I know that people riding the bus don’t have another choice but I’m still mad about it. For real though why is it so difficult to simply turn on your blinker? They put it on the side of your steering wheel to make it easier for you to use. So use it. Why is it such a chore for other drivers to use? Also, while we’re on the subject, turn faster! That’s it. My issue isn’t just with drivers it’s also with you thick-headed pedestrians. Are you people so narcissistic that you think other drivers won’t hit you just because it’s illegal? Some people might just hit one of y’all to prove a point. There are these things called sidewalks that were created a long time ago for us to use so we don’t get hit by a motorized vehicle.

Oh, but you’re just going to ignore it so you don’t have to walk all the way to the crosswalk? One more thing before I move on – if the crosswalk light has a red hand on it that means don’t walk. If it has a walking man on it that means walk. It’s really not that hard. Now back to drivers, specifically traffic. So, I get that if there’s a car accident that’s reason for traffic. However, when there’s traffic just because people drive slow that’s absolutely ridiculous. It’s a freeway. Drive faster. The speed limit says 60 mph not 30

so come on. On a final note, let me touch on the topic of elderly drivers. I’m generally afraid of them because they could take someone out at literally anytime. I remember a time where I was driving down Harding Way and I was behind an older car. We come to a stop and this car was taking forever to go. I usually count to 10 when I am at a stop sign. We were there for a minute. so I started honking my horn and the car still hadn’t moved. At this point I’m like whatever I’m just going to go around. As I’m going around the car I take the opportunity to look at the jerk who’s blocking the road. I’m like super shocked to see an elderly woman with her head pressed on her steering wheel. I’m thinking she is either dead or asleep, either way I didn’t care because I was late to my own thing. It’s situations like this that prompt me to believe that senior citizens shouldn’t have drivers licenses. I don’t want to die because an elderly person can’t obey simple traffic laws, so please make the right decision and give up your license. Or get your children to drive you places.

Examining the vicious cycle of ethnic violence in Myanmar

Violence reaching fever pitch as the world dances around offering assistance By Douglas Francovich


Near-campus tragedy could have been avoided The Collegian


hat is going on in somebody's mind that tells them that it’s OK to drink while driving? We have been constantly told why we shouldn’t. It can lead to damaged property, physical harm to self or, worse yet, harm to somebody else. On Sept. 15, Anthony Calderon provided the latest example as to the damage drinking and driving can bring on Pacific Avenue, right in front of campus. Calderon, a 31-year old man drunkenly took the life of Cameron Allison, an 18-year old Lincoln High football player whose life was only just beginning, after ramming a vehicle Allison was a passenger in. Calderon was arrested. His bail is $2 million. A memorial is what’s left of the scene. Allison’s life was cut short. Calderon's life will likely now be behind bars. Drinking and driving isn’t worth it. We have plenty to worry about in this world. We shouldn’t need to be worried about some unthinking jerk clocking back a 40 and getting into his car to kill us. Think before you drive. Don’t end someone's life because you want to drink.

ith the crisis in Myanmar growing larger by the day, one has to start to pay attention. Let me provide details. The current crisis involves the Myanmar government persecuting the Rohingya, a Muslim minority within the country. The tensions between the government and the Rohingya have gone on for many years, though the current cycle of violence started in August of this year when “‘extreme Bengali insurgents attacked a police station,’” said the BBC news. With other people being persecuted for their beliefs, one can draw the parallel to the U.S. As we fight injustice at home, seeing the same injustice abroad calls for us to provide assistance. “If the people…they’re begging for help, we should step in,” said Victor Lozano, Delta student. Showing the world that we care for all those in need is the right thing to do, regardless of any potential consequences. The present conflict started when a Rohingya militant group attacked Myanmar police. Militants claimed the attack was in response to brutal treatment of their people. The Myanmar government responded by launching police strikes against multiple Rohingya villages. Strikes like these have led to the current flood of refugees into neighboring Bangladesh. The situation is worsening as the United Nations warn of this as a possible ethnic cleansing. The problem is now brought to light here. Why have the United Nations or the United States not done more to

help these refugees? With a humanitarian crisis of several hundred thousand refugees displaced, help has been slow to arrive. The United Nation states the Bangladesh government is only allowing for limited assistance to the refugees. This is due to the Bangladesh government wishing to help the refugees, but not wanting to entice more people to come to an already poverty-stricken country. Even with legitimate worries such as this, it is worrying to see so many people in distress with little help. In any conflict, it should not be the civilians who suffer, but like many, that is what is happening now. With only small amounts of support for the world at large, it is hard for one not to be drawn to the thought of the Rwandan genocide. Here hundreds of thousands died while the world mostly stood by and watched. While the current crisis is nowhere near that level of death, at least a thousand people have already died. Even with worries of refugees arriving onto an overburdened country, the world should be putting forth its best efforts to help these people. A refugee crisis of this size has impacts felt all over the world. “I’m a firm believer that the U.S. should definitely take part of anything that has to do with our country, security, or the general welfare,” said Marisa Banuelos, Delta student. The world as a whole has ignored humanitarian crises far too often, and now is the time for it to step up and help those in need. It is time to stop thinking about what might or might not harm an individual or country, but to look to helping humanity as a whole, starting with the Rohingya refugees.

Feminism something to continue working on, not back track By Emily Beaton


News Editor

hen you think of the word “feminist” or “feminism,” you may think of a 1970’s bra burning or a shirt from Forever 21 with the word printed across. While we all have our own interpretations of what feminism is or what it means to us, according to Webster’s dictionary feminism is defined as “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.” Therefore, “feminists” would be considered advocates for equal rights of the sexes. Although the topic of feminism has been around for hundreds of years what exactly does it mean for today’s generation? As a millennial and a 20-year old college woman, feminism has been the topic of conversations for two different reasons. It has made major breakthrough in equality of the workplace, and thanks to Intagrammers and the Kardashians it has moved mountains for sexual equality.

As a woman I feel these two subjects shouldn’t be of equal comparison as feminist breakthroughs. For women who have worked extremely hard to make a difference in the workforce such as Sheryl Sandberg, Tina Fey and Sophia Amouroso, why does the focus always seem to switch onto those trying to make a difference sexually. It’s one thing to post a topless picture of yourself to social media and it’s a whole other thing to be a well known actress, that produces and writes their own Emmy-awarded shows and films. Feminism shouldn’t be classified as something as simple as an intentional “nip-slip.” Sure Susan B. Anthony fought for equal rights among women, but should her memory live on as providing the freedom of celebrity women nudes, or that women climbing their way up the corporate ladder? As role models for the next generation, I feel that as women we should carry on the tradition of women excelling in the workforce and becoming their own bosses. We should continue to model that no one has to be a self proclaimed housewife. Trade your aprons for a MacBook pro if you want, because regardless, it’s your choice.

I understand the feminism behind that of sexual equality, and I feel that women have come a long way with that as well, and are free to express themselves however they feel, but I don’t feel that younger generations should be influenced to believe feminism is as simple as a revealing photo on the internet, or proudly announcing bedroom conquests. It’s so much more than that, and women are so much more than that. Part of feminism is simply believing and knowing that the sexes are equal and feeling like you always have to prove it. Women and men are equal and when they are not treated equally something must be done in order to right that injustice. With feminism making breathroughs in society and being printed on T-shirts, we must not forget how hard the women who went before us worked to get to where we are today. Our accomplishments as women are something we should always celebrate and never take for granted.

Delta graduate runs Horticulture program By Debra Hyman Staff Writer

Many students are unaware Delta College offers a Horticulture program supported by a state-of-the-art Horticultural Center on the Delta campus and a 160-acre farm in Manteca. Associate Professor Tina Candelo-Mize, a Fall 2017 hire, plans to change that. “I’m excited to get people excited about plants,” she said. Candelo-Mize, a Lodi native, comes to Delta College from California State University, Chico where she was associated with the College of Agriculture. She takes over responsibility for the Horticulture program from Mike Toscano who recently retired from Delta College after a 22-year teaching career at Delta College. It was at Delta, studying under Toscano, Candelo-Mize first became interested in horticulture. As a re-entry student, she planned to study early childhood education but discovered in a pruning class that working with plants required the same creativity as her former career, hairstyling. She went on to earn an A.S. degree from Delta College, followed by B.S. and M.S. degrees from California State University, Chico. Delta’s Horticulture program currently has an enrollment of about 150 students. They do coursework in three specialty areas: Landscape, Nursery and Turf Management. Students range from recent high school graduates to older reentry students, including

U.S. military veterans. They’re almost evenly split between male and female. According to Candelo-Mize, the Delta Horticultural program has historically been under-enrolled, a fact she can’t explain as jobs in the field are plentiful. “I feel like my task is to start exploring why that’s happened and try to overcome those obstacles,” she said. At the same time, the program’s student success rate is high. “We have people finishing their certificates and finishing their degrees so that’s good,” she said. At present, the Horticulture Center is divided into four areas: a retail nursery, greenhouses, a demonstration garden, and a meadow. Candelo-Mize has a number of projects planned to expand and enhance the existing facilities. One of these projects is especially important to her. It is an “edible” garden that will be created to promote agricultural literacy, of which she is an advocate. “We’re overall lost a bit of connection with our natural systems,” said Candelo-Mize. “That’s nationwide and so it doesn’t surprise me too much that we see that here locally.” The new garden will be designed to follow the principles of permaculture, a system of cultivation that creates a self-sustaining ecosystem by integrating human activity with natural surroundings. The majority of plants to be

featured there will produce something that is edible. They will include asparagus, artichokes, sunflowers, sun chokes and strawberries. The Delta Horticulture program is partially supported by the sale of plants cultivated by students. Sales take place three times a semester at the retail nursery. The next sale is planned for Friday, Oct. 20 and a poinsettia sale, which has yet to be scheduled, will take place around Thanksgiving. All sales are open to the community. Candelo-Mize encouraged students who might have an interest in horticulture, whether general or professional, to attend an upcoming plant sale or visit the SJDC Horticulture Facebook page for more information about the program and its activities.

New ‘it’ thing, thrifting back in style $7



By Raul Torres Senior Staff Writer

Thrift store shopping has gained a ton of traction within the last couple years since millennials love dressing in “vintage” clothes, myself included. According to America’s Research Group, a consumer research firm, about 16 to 18 percent of Americans will shop at a thrift store some time during the year. Thrift store shopping is something I rarely do. I have worked in retail a good amount of my work life, so I always bought retail. I always see these stories of someone buying a painting or a miscellaneous item for $10 and it turns out to be something worth thousands of dollars, so thrifting was something I always told myself I need to do more of. “Thrift shopping is something I do to find gems, I find a lot of older styles that are a couple years out of style and try to produce my own look. It can be fun at times it really is hit and miss when you come

to any thrift store,” said customer Tanya Jackson. The Internet has helped thrifting grow more than just an in-store option. Social media has played a part in online thrifting people can now post their items on Instagram and let the followers come to them through a virtual store. Online apps have also helped, such as eBay, Amazon and if you wanted to sell locally, Offer Up. What I wanted to capture was how much you can buy if you take $30 with you into a thrift store. I also wanted to talk to people that thrift store shop and what brings people back to thrift stores. The thrift store I chose was Superior Thrift on Wilson Way in Stockton. As soon as I walked in you realize it is nothing like your retail store at the mall. Racks of clothes for aisles and picture frames and other items on the side of the store walls. It was divided with signs hanging from the ceiling telling which racks held what products. Just looking through the shirts

and pants I got to see the deals that I have been told about. T-shirts I normally paid $30 to $40 on were thrifted for $6 to $10. I ended up walking out with a pair of pants and two T-shirts and went over budget by $2. Just speaking with consumers, you can see they truly love thrift shopping. For some it was even more of a hobby. Thrift shops are not just places that sell clothe. They have vases, picture frames, board games and other random items spread around the store. Thrift stores can also be used as an economical advantage since the prices are so consumer friendly. Consumers are able to go somewhere and not feel suffocated by unrealistic prices at major retail stores. “Shopping here is a blessing as a mother of 3, I get to buy my kids different outfits for the price of one at JCPenney…..

A nationwide event known as Park(ing) Day was held for the first time in downtown Stockton on Friday, Sep.14. On Park(ing) Day, participants occupy a parking space and use their imagination to build things that could go there besides a car, whether it be a parklet, an art display, a wall of motivation or an outdoor living room. “Park(ing) Day is something that started in San Francisco over 10 years ago,” said Christine Corrales, with San Joaquin Council of Governments. “And the main concept behind Parking Day is to look at parking spaces on the road and kind of reimagine what we could do with them if cars didn’t take up so much space.” Another concept behind Park(ing) Day is to break people from their routines and get them to

talk to one another. “Typically people just get in their car and are nonstop, not engaging with folks of the neighborhood,” Corrales said. “So this is one way to make people slow down a little bit and rethink about what they do on a day-to-day basis.” Things that were built for Park(ing) Day in Stockton were things like game centers where visitors can play hopscotch, drawn with chalk in a parking space. Other things include art installations, live music, different outdoor living room concepts where people could rest and talk, as well as a resting area with a little bed surrounded by stuffed cloud pillows and a balloon themed sign that reads ‘Take a water, candy, balloon, nap.’ “The Goodstock Girls, they do the STOCKMARKET events, they’ve got a wall where you draw a task from and it gives you an activity to complete,” said Kari Mcnickle, participator in Park(ing) Day. Stephen Bentley, Deacon of St. John's Episcopal

Church, along with the Council Governments and Biking Coalition put the event together. “What we are celebrating here is biking throughout the city, with full moon rides (an event where people ride their bikes around downtown stockton from 6 p.m.- 8 p.m.), this and the Hub,” said Bentley. The Hub is an organization partnered with the Episcopal Church that provides free bike repair services for the less fortunate, said Bentley. “They build and maintain bicycles for those that are less fortunate,” Bentley said. “It's a free service for anyone that wants to come in, regardless of how much they have. Most people can’t afford to repair their bicycles, so the Hub is an opportunity for people to take the bicycles to a place where they can have it done, and have it done free.” According to Beasley, it is a likelihood that this event will take place next year as well.

This puts Gomez in an odd situation, he hates the idea of keeping a secret from his wife as well as making his daughter unhappy. He is in quite the dilemma. “We weren’t originally going to do this play,” said Beasley. “It was going to be ‘A Chorus Line,’ and we didn’t have enough people audition, specifically we didn’t have enough men, so we switched right at the last minute, and his is just a much bigger show than “A Chorus Line.” The set for “A Chorus Line” is literally a painted line on the floor and a wall of mirrors, which is very different from The Addams Family set.” The actors of “The Addams Family” portray the characters is very well. Some of the most memorable characters include Gomez, Wednesday, Lucas’ parents and Uncle Fester, played by 20-year old Delta College student Nicholas Jeffery Anhorn. “I have been acting since my junior year of high school,” Anhorn said. The first play he performed in was Edgar Allan Poe’s “Tell-Tale Heart.”      “I didn’t have a lot of lines. I had a couple, I said them off stage, and then I was murdered,” he said

From having a few lines to say and being murdered off stage, Anhorn is now taking on much more vital roles and playing vibrant characters such as Uncle Fester, challenging himself as a performer. Anhorn does this with the help of the vocal training he gets from Bruce Southard, Director of Choral studies at Delta College. “I’ve been taking a lot of lessons and a lot of instruction from him, and there are some things that he taught me that I applied for the first time in this show. At first it felt weird, but it changed my singing and made it easier to sing,” said Anhorn According to Anhorn, Uncle Fester was a character that inspired him to pursue acting and performing. “Christopher Allan Lloyd’s Uncle Fester from the film really inspired my pursuit of acting, my pursuit of theatre and my pursuit of performing. And to get the opportunity to have my version of Fester, to have my version of something that inspired me at a very young age, is over the moon,” he said. The Stockton Civic Theatre is currently in its 67th season. The next show will be “Mama Mia,” which runs Nov.15 through-Dec. 10.

Delta student takes stage in SCT production of ‘Addams Family’ By Mikael Honzell Editor in Chief

The Stockton Civic Theatre is currently staging “The Addams Family,” a dark-humored musical comedy that taps into all emotions. “The play is about these two families coming together,” said Dennis Beasley, director of The Addams Family. “Ultimately, the story is that we see the weirdos mixing in with the normal people, and what you end up seeing is the weirdos aren’t so weird and that normal people aren’t so normal.” The play focuses on the Addams Family hosting a dinner for their daughter’s fiance Lucas and his parents. The daughter, Wednesday, worries her boyfriend’s parents won’t like her and her family, due to their odd lifestyle and creepy nature. Wednesday wants to keep her engagement a secret from her mother, who she thinks will disapprove of the engagement. She does however, tell her father, Gomez, about the engagement and hopes he will keep it a secret.

Mexican culture celebrated By Michael R. N. Weber Staff Writer

Stockton celebrated its second annual Mexican Independence Day Celebration for the Latin community on Sept. 16. Comerciantes Unidos, along with the Downtown Stockton Alliance and the Mexican Heritage Center hosted the event in downtown Stockton. On stage a large Mexican flag hung between speakers playing music and banners of several Mexican icons suspended over the stage. People enjoyed live music, singers and dancers. Esther Madrigal performed traditional folkloric dances in a black dress with purple flowers surrounding a mural of Guadalajara City. A mariachi band played guitar and trumpets. The Stockton City Council presented certificates of recognition to the three groups thanking them for “[enriching] the lives of Stocktonians through presentation of history and culture.” At the end of the celebration, a color guard performed the Mexican national anthem and presented the Mexican and American flags. A woman from the Consulate General of Mexico from Sacramento, “¡Viva Mexico! Viva!” President of Comerciantes Unidos, Max Beas,

said his group is proud to host the event to show the strength of their community. The Mexican Heritage Center, one of the sponsors of the event had jewelry, figurines, plants and pictures on display at a booth at the event. President of the Mexican Heritage Center, Gracie Madrid, said the center displays monthly exhibits promoting Mexican art and culture. The center celebrates exhibits by local artists, the Day of the Dead, Caesar Chavez’ achievements the Adelitas Awards and more. “Mexicans enrich Stockton,” said Gerardo Serrano, main event spokesperson. According to Serrano, Mexican Independence Day is an important event in Stockton celebrating the culture the Latino community brings to the city. How did Mexican culture make its way to Stockton? It started with the fight for independence from Spain. When asked about what Mexican Independence Day Means, Serrano said Spain ruled over Mexico and made people slaves. Mexico then declared independence and became a democratic nation with its own constitution. September 16, 1810, marks the day of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla gave his battle cry, “Cry of Dolores.” “Although many mistakenly attribute the Cinco de Mayo holiday as the celebration of Mexican independence, Sept. 16 was the day the enthusiastic Indian and mestizo congregation of Hidalgo’s small Dolores parish church took up arms and began their fight for freedom against Spain,” according to the U.S. Library of Congress. When Mexico won the war, it began a new history. Latinos occupied what we know today as California. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2010, there were 104,172 people in Stockton who identified as Mexican. Out of a total 291,707, the group holds the largest demographic.


Tuleburg Press to host second Fully Booked fundraiser By Ramon Zuniga Senior Staff Writer

Locally run Tuleburg Press’ annual Fully Booked event is happening on Sept. 29 with high hopes of a successful outcome. The event, which will be held at St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church, raises funds for The Write Place, a downtown Stockton writing and creative center founded by Tuleburg Press. Single tickets cost $80. A couple is $145. A table can be purchased for $1,000. Tickets can be purchased at Last year’s Fully Booked event raised enough money to open the center. The Write Place is within walking distance for many schools like Team Charter and Stockton Collegiate. Programs and classes are offered. “The Write Place is actually a writing center that’s 2,000 square feet space where people can learn writing and book arts,” said Paula Sheil. Tuleburg Press was started locally with the objective of supporting local authors.

The organization was founded by Paula Sheil, a current instructor of English composition and Shakespeare at Delta. “Tuleburg Press was started to publish books about Stockton, about the people, the situations and the concerns,” said Sheil “What differentiates us from others is our outreach in the community.” Sheil teaches an accelerated course that would complete a student’s English transfer units in a semester. She was a staff writer for The Record for 10 years and helped establish The Artifact, a Delta literary magazine. From the time she graduated from University of the Pacific, she has lived in Stockton and helped local authors achieve their goals,. Tuleburg Press is a most recent endeavor. In 2015, Phil Hutcheon, English composition and film as literature professor at Delta College, had “Desperation Passes,” published through the Tuleberg Press. The book went on to receive positive reviews from Midwest Book Review. One book published by Tuleburg Press, “Desperation Passes,” was written by another Delta College professor

Phil Hutcheon. The book received well reviews from by the Midwest Book Review in April 2015. Hutcheon teaches English composition and film as literature. Last year, Tuleburg Press published “55 Words and Counting,” a book of poetry by former Delta student Dave Waldon. This years’ Fully Booked event also honors retired English instructor Sam Hatch. “Sam Hatch is really into literacy. He is a retired Delta College professor even though he might still teach a class here and there. He got involved with the broader literacy movement that involves a lot of people in Stockton. He found out through research that half of the SUSD libraries were unworkable and had no working staff,” said Sheil. Through various methods Hatch has received money from donations mainly from Delta College professors and collected books from the community. With partners across the community such as schools and companies that sell books, he has begun the long process of taking inventory and replaced old and damaged books.

SHAWN THWAITES PERFORMS AT DELTA By Chanelle Muerong Entertainment Editor

On Thursday, Sept. 14, Trinidadian-American musician Shawn Thwaites and students from his Sacramento-based lessons performed a steel-pan drum and cultural presentation at Delta College. Thwaites is originally from Washington D.C. and has performed everywhere in the United States. His style includes the best of his Trinidadian ancestry, intertwining jazz, hip hop, funk, calypso, reggae and more. “[My culture] is the best thing I can do. It pays me, it feeds me, it got me into college. I went to Berklee College in Boston on a partial scholarship,” said Thwaites. “Music is the universal language. I feel really good about it, I want everyone to play the steel drums.” The steel drum comes from Trinidad and Tobago and is about 50-years old. The Trinidadians used them during World War II, making them from 55-gallon oil drums, said Thwaites. The students with him were all students that have been playing steel drums for less than a year. Thwaites said they were learning how to play the instruments and learning the culture from it. The students come to his house to learn, with either one hour sessions or private lessons. “I’m one of the older students, I’ve been playing for a few months with Shawn. It’s been totally wonderful. Shawn is unintimidating,” said Ron Turner. “I’m a testament that the older folks like me

could also come out and learn how to do it [play the steel drum]. I really love it and I have a great time.” This next student (of not even two months) took up steel drums because the sound of the drums had attracted him. Saul McCoy said that he was always inspired by Afro-Latin culture. “I’ve always been in love with Caribbean-West Indian culture, from the food to the song to the dance to the dress to the lifestyle,” said McCoy. “I’m learning music through the steel drums.” McCoy offered an opinion on Thwaites as well. “He’s authentic. Usually when you find someone who’s authentic, you be with them for as long as possible. You always learn something from him,” said McCoy. During the presentation, Thwaites explained the history of the steel drum and gave a brief example of the different sounds the drums make. Thwaites played a combination of covers, such as “Sorry” by Justin Bieber and “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, as well as original songs during the performance. The original songs are from Thwaites’ band, the Shawn Thwaites Rebel Quartet (STRQ), which just released its first album titled, “New Life” in May. It can be purchased on the group’s website, or on iTunes. STRQ recently has been on a California tour that included a performance on Good Day Sacramento. Even so, there are still some people who are first-time fans.

“I barely heard of him today, it’s been years since I’ve seen something like this,” said Louis Caudillo, who saw Thwaites practicing and decided to stop by. “[I like] the tune of it.” Caudillo then compared the sound of the steel drum to the sound a fork makes when it hit a chalkboard, it was a special sound that sort of reverberates. Caudillo mentioned he would be open to the idea of taking lessons from Thwaites if given the opportunity. The presentation ended at 12:30 p.m.

After the show, Thwaites said he felt really good. “We got a good rhythm from the crowd and the kids that came out and clapped ... that was awesome,” he said. Thwaites stated that Delta asked him to come back sometime in Black History Month, but a specific date hasn’t been planned. The STRQ will also be performing at Harlow’s in Sacramento on Oct. 13. The group will be open for Christian Scott.

On Sept. 15  Delta College hosted Dia de la Independencia a Ballet Folklorico de Frank Zapata production, with guest singer Adan Zuniga and special guest, Grupo Folklorico Calli.  The show ran from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and showcased dances from Baja California and Sinaloa. Rocio Alvarez Lopez said he enjoyed the show. “I think it’s really nice that they have these types of shows cause it’s a way for us to celebrate what is Dia de la Independencia in our country and it something that make us very proud,” said Lopez. Lopez also attended to see her daughter take part in the performance. Adalia Janell Lopez said

much time was spent prepping for the production. “It took us about six months, it was a lot of work we had a lot of mistakes and it took a long time but it was worth the wait to show how much we’ve grown,” said the younger Lopez. Ballet Folklorico de Frank Zapata is an organization that helps young people ages 8 to 21 learn about culture and the different regions of Mexico. Participants also learn about the type of clothing and music. “It motivates them to stay out of the streets and it is a non-profit organization,” said Sandra Gonzalez.

Women’s soccer starts season with multiple wins, ties By David Michael Senior Staff Writer

Delta College’s women’s soccer team has started out its season with a record of 4-0-3. These results could be attributed to Head Coach Adrienne Sorenson and her dedicated team of athletes. As accomplishing as this is, Sorenson had different thoughts after her team’s first conference game end with a tying score 0-0. “I hope we can learn a lesson and move forward without losing a game, and so far we have been able to do that and I’m hoping we can continue to do that. So far we have two ties and four wins. I’m hoping we can continue to gut out results but I felt like we could have if we approached the game just a little more ready to play,” said Sorenson after the conference game. Some of the prime players that stood out to Sorenson are No. 4 Erica Dias and No. 10 Iris Cruz. Both perform well during games and contributed during the conference game.

Even with a tie the players suffered some painful scrapes and bruises during play. “We had about four injures and we usually have none too maybe one a game,” said Amanda Leal the goalie for the game. “We don’t know yet if they’re (the injuries) serious, but we should know once they get back from the trainer.” A player that Leal noticed during the game was No. 3 Alyssa Martinez. “She gave it her all this game and left nothing behind her. It was really an impact on our back defense,” said Martinez. Dustin Brakebill, the public address announcer to almost all of Delta’s home soccer games, said that, “No. 11 Daisy Contreras and No. 5 Sammie Rascon are both the top players this game.” As an overview of the team season so far they have not lost a game and according to Sorenson, “we just have to prepare ourselves mentally and physically” and then should keep it that way. The team’s next game is Sept. 22 and the Mustangs will play against Modesto Jr. College in Modesto.
