Making decisions to better serve students

San Jose City College’s fiscal picture looks bright. Revenue projections from property taxes jumped from $1.7 million to more than $3 million, money that should be spent on student support programs. All students at SJCC should have the necessary support -- inside and outside the classroom. This all encompassing support would allow students to fully discover, explore and realize their career, academic and personal potential. The following are just a few programs we could begin, or expand upon that would go a long way to help with those concerns and needs.

Getting to-and-fro

Transportation is a great need many SJCC students face. Without an Eco Pass program in place, it is quite challenging for many homeless or less affluent students without a vehicle to commute to class. Those $4 per day to get to and from school, may not seem daunting as a number, but when you don’t have it, it is a giant hurdle to jump over. The district needs to move on the Eco Pass sooner rather than later, and any money needed to facilitate that with expedience could come from this excess budget. Developing a partnership on campus with a company like, or a carpooling initiative, would go a long way to helping students get to and from campus.

If students were matched with individuals who were able to share their SJCC experiences, imagine how much easier learning the ropes of this particular institution would be. No administrator or faculty member can relate to the actual day-to-day challenges SJCC’s administrative culture and systems like a peer can. This would be a great program to start and fund for the betterment of the entire college.

More opportunities for student employment on campus and in the community. Every dollar SJCC allocates to the Federal Work-Study Program is matched by funds from the Department of Education. This means if a student earned $200 working parttime at the school, it would only cost SJCC $100. This seems like a very wise investment and there is no such thing as too many dollars to spend in this area. We should be maximizing our Federal Work-Study Program or fighting to bring more opportunities for students to learn while earning to our campus.

Have a little help from my friends

A peer mentoring program would be a great addition to our campus. Not only would it be a great way to create some of the aforementioned work-study jobs, but it would also help build a sense of real community on campus.

How would you spend extra budget SPEAK funds if you were in charge at SJCC?

Raylene Fraklin Age: 20 Position: Volunteer worker I would have more activities and school parties.

Student Ambassadors

We should be more tied to our local community and more dedicated to recruiting talented individuals to our campus from area high schools. Having a student ambassador program could go a long way providing yet another employment opportunity for our students while building a sense of community, both on and off our campus. These ambassadors could earn and learn, while doing things in the community like after-school and high school tutoring programs. We could mobilize a program like this for positive changes off campus as well, where SJCC would be seen as an institution that fosters great students and makes a real difference in the everyday lives of the surrounding community.

Every dollar SJCC allocates to the Federal Work Study program is matched by funds from the Department of Education. This means for a student to earn $200 in a week part time it only costs SJCC $100.

Learning and Earning

2 Opinion

Aisha McCullough Age: 39 Major: Undeclared I would provide more staff to help guide new students through navagating the registration process and financial aid with kindness!

Andrew Peinado Age: 21 Major: Chemistry I would renovate some of the bathrooms around campus.

Kathleen Rege Major: Undeclared I would create scholarships for more students.

Shelter from the storm

When an emergency happens or when a student suddenly has housing issues, we can do more than just provide a list of community resources. We should develop a program to put students in temporary housing situations during times of crisis, keeping them from being homeless. We should have a place where students in that type of situation can go and find not only referrals to other resources, but also a helping hand from the campus to get through their temporary housing struggles. If the vision of San Jose City College is really “Inspiring Success … One Student at a Time,” then we could do better in developing practices and programs, as an institution, that actually reach students and help them with all facets of success. It is our sincere hope that whatever happens to this extra money, that these things be made a priority for the decision makers of our district. Lets go beyond the slogans and vision statements and push to realize that vision.

Isaac Belluomini Age: 19 Major: Psychology I would use the extra money to bring more majors to SJCC so students have more options to choose from.

Melanie Advincula Age: 32 Major: Human Resources I would use the funds towards programs and clubs so there would be more help.

SJCC website getting a facelift District collaborates to tackle complaints concerning ‘disgraceful’ online presence By Taylor Atkinson Times Staff

The much-anticipated Website Redesign Project launched Thursday, Oct. 10 at San Jose City College. The district office, SJCC, Evergreen Valley College and the Workforce Institute are all running on different web platforms that are not integrated and do not meet the needs of their constituents, according to the district website. “We passed a bond measure and we specifically talked about revamping our entire information technology infrastructure, and one of the great things that is allowable under the bond measure (2010) is the revamping of our website,” said Rita Cepeda, San Jose Evergreen Community College District Chancellor. Cepeda said the district’s image was a critical concern, both internally and externally. “The big complaint came from our board of trustees, who said we have to have a better tool to represent our district,” Cepeda said. “They called it a disgrace basically, that we needed to have something that was more representative of the content and talent of our district.” She said the district is looking to improve every aspect of each website. “Now we have the resources to do it, and we have a process that will include advice committees from each of the colleges, the Workforce Institute and the district office,” Cepeda said. Business Services Supervisor Seher Awan spoke about the advice committees in more detail. “Our committee is composed of eight people; there’s two students, two faculty

Dia de los Muertos exhibit ends with a bang Festivities honor those who passed

Students prepare for large-scale emergency situation

By Justin San Diego Times Staff

Students packed into the Carmen Castellano Fine Arts Center at San Jose City College for the Dia de los Muertos, otherwise known as Day of the Dead, celebration Oct. 30. Artists and students collaborated on creating a lineup of events including Aztec dancing, face painting, swinging and a pinata and art viewing. “We raise ourselves up when we make time for these events,” said Lee Onista, 27, fine arts major. The event kicked off with a group of Aztec dancers and musicians called Calpulli Tonalehqueh, which translates to the Nahuatl phrase “warriors accompanying the sun.” The two dancers, one male and one female, wore 5-foot-long feathers on their heads and noisemaking shells on their legs. The choreography consisted of many kicks and spins to the beat of the drums. Two more men from Calpulli Tonalehqueh gave speeches and played instruments, including the maracas, drums, flute and gong. The final dance was inspired by fire, water, earth and air. A member of the dance group said, “We have gods for each of element and we dance to show respect for them.” The event died down after the dancers left, but visitors continued to come in and out of the gallery throughout the day. Colorful and festive art work, displayed in the gallery since Oct. 11, lit up the room. Espino feels she made great decisions by putting no limits on the artists. “There’s all different types of art shown here including contemporary, traditional, and performance.” After serving a 21-year prison sentence, Santa Cruz’s Chris Wimer decided to get involved by

He hopes to work more with youth. Wimer just launched a clothing line called “Natal” and plans to release music after recently working with famous producers. “Day of the Dead isn’t just a Mexican holiday,” Wimer said “it was actually started by native Indians and indigenous groups.” A handful of students and faculty participated in breaking a piñata, which was postponed from the Oct. 24 poetry reading event due to the overwhelming amount of poetry. Some students even had their faces painted in a black-and-white skeleton design. Tribal-like music played

from a computer speaker and free snacks were provided to the crowd. The costume contest, as advertised on the flier, never occurred because no one dressed up, said Carolann Espino, art student and coordinator of the event. Espino said, “This year’s Dia De Los Muertos event was better than last year’s because we involved more of the student body and the community.” “I wish there were more students dedicated as Carolann to bring the community together,” Onista said. Many of the organizers are already preparing to raise the bar for the Dia de los Muertos gallery next year. “We can improve by getting more students involved,” said Jesus Cavarrobias, faculty of

ethnic and Chicano studies. Espino also shared her feelings that the school needs to bring more attention to campus events. “There was trouble getting money, there was no budget and I only had two weeks to pull everything together,” said Espino. “I hope the school gets more money for the art department by having events like Dia de los Muertos that gain a lot of attention.” “The turnout was really good,” said Lucy Ghelfi, 60, student artist. “We had a dynamic couple of weeks to educate people of Day of the Dead.” Overall the event was a success seeing as how it accomplished the goals of bringing people together and showcasing culture.

Students from various counties and colleges, including San Jose City College, will be part of a multi-casualty incident exercise. The training exercise will be held at the SJCC football field’s east side, near Leigh Avenue on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 10 a.m. This exercise also acts as a joint training with resources from the state’s region two disaster medical support units. These DMSU teams are responsible for all medical responses in the event of a state or federal disaster, such as hurricanes, earthquakes or floods. There will be two DMSU ambulances on site and a simulated stadium collapse with 20 to 30 patients. The goal of the exercise is to focus on training potential emergency medical technician students for a large-scale medical emergency. The students will be in charge of patient assessment, care and transport. “Determining acuity of patients and assigning treatment is challenging with one patient, the idea is to challenge the students by throwing multiple patients at them,” said Scott Miller, Emergency Medical Services program director at SJCC. Schools from the following counties will be in attendance: Alameda, Sonoma, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, South San Francisco and San Mateo. There will also be a class with more information Nov. 8 in the Tech Center (room 417), at a yet to be specified time.

Fan performs with Paramore Bandmates rocked out to a setlist of pop-rock songs about growing up By Justin san diego times Staff

Alternative rock band Paramore, led by front woman Hayley Williams, rioted with fans inside San Jose’s newly-renamed SAP Center on Friday, Oct. 18. Williams chose a fan named Mark from the audience to sing the last half of the band’s breakout hit “Misery Business.” The fan wore skinny jeans and a shirt Williams described by saying “you’re shirt has Misery Business all over it. I used to wear that same shirt.” Williams handed a microphone to Mark. He ironically sang the lyrics “Now watch my wildest dreams come true / not one of them involving you.” It was as if Mark had been preparing for this moment all his life. Many attendees of the show, including Grace Domecus, 19, San Francisco, said bringing Mark on stage was the best part of the show. “He totally owned it” she said. “Paramore is my favorite band. I’ve seen them nine times, the first being in 2006.” Domecus said she enjoys the new sound of the band and described it as being more “prog.” Another new change seems to be the band’s songs reflect a higher level of maturity. The opening song of the concert was “Grow Up,” in which Williams sang, “Some of us have

to grow up sometimes / so if I have to, I’m gonna leave you behind.” Williams gave a brief speech about how letting go of negativity in your life can be difficult, but necessary to move forward and free yourself from emotional pain. Another highlight of the show was the performance of the possible next single from the new self-titled album, “Ain’t it fun.” Williams welcomed a choir to come on stage. The choir swayed left to right in red silky robes while singing the lyrics, “No more crying to your mama / cause you’re on your own in the real world.” The band performed songs from all four of their studio albums as well as their biggest hits, including “Now,” “Ignorance,” “Decode,” “That’s What You Get” and “Pressure.” Williams and bandmates Taylor York and Jeremy Davis showed their vivacious performing skills. All three members of the band put forth effort to interact with the audience by making eye contact with the crowd, moving from one side of the stage to the other and giving brief talks in between songs. Wearing black leather tights, a white cropped shirt and her signature bright orange hair, Williams proved to be a rock superstar. The legendary Fleetwood Mac hit “Landslide” was covered and mashed-up with their own song “In

The Studio Theater Production class, which consists of seven students will perform the 17 roles in the plays. Sloan says the six short plays share a theme of communication and timing. “Students have been working hard all semester and we hope to get as many people as we can,“ said Sloan.

Softball team plays hardball Winning is not everything

by Robert E Lee IV Times STaff

The San Jose City College softball team ranks among the nation’s top 30 teams in academics. The Lady Jags were rewarded for their 3.016 team GPA with a spot on the All-Academic Team selected by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. Debbie Huntze-Rooney has been coaching the Lady Jags for 22 years and has led the team to eight Coast Conference Championships. She has accomplished other great things such as taking her team to the state regional playoffs for 19 consecutive years in a row. Her philosophy isn’t just about

winning games. “Respect people, respect the players. Yes winning is important but at the same time we have to learn how to work as a team. Academics is huge for us,” Huntze-Rooney said. She went on to say that players who find themselves struggling in the classroom sometimes don’t ask for help. “The tutoring centers here on campus are excellent,” HuntzeRooney said. “ We do the reading and writing centers, the math labs and study hours. So those are things we bring for our team, and the student athletes there to help them.” Coach Huntze-Rooney said she thinks the student-athletes she has coached would describe her as tough but fair.

“I’m very competitive,” Huntze-Rooney said. “I want us to have a successful program here, but they also know I’m tough when it comes to school, doing the right thing and making the right decisions.” The Lady Jags will play their first game of the season Friday Jan. 31.

Billy Parish started which company?

Start to finish: 1 hour 30 minutes (Active time: 15 minutes) Servings: 4-8 1 cup all-purpose flour 2/3 six-grain flour 1/3 cup light brown sugar 1/2 cup coconut sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves, or to taste 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/4 cup maple syrup 1/3 cup vegetable oil 10 ounces pumpkin puree or a little over a cup if not measuring

Combine all ingredients and stir well until smooth. Spoon into a pan and lightly smooth out the top with a spatula, keeping in mind that batter is very thick. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until test poke with toothpick comes out dry and clean. Leave to cool until safe to handle. Turn the pan over and slap the bottom until bread pops out. This bread is great to bake ahead and freeze, just wrap in plastic then foil. Defrost at room temperature to enjoy when taking it out of the freezer. It also makes a unique and tasty gift for the holiday season.

Heat oven to 325 F. Evenly spray a large loaf pan, about 9” x 5”, with cooking spray.

If more bread is desired, three large loaves can be made by tripling all the ingredients and mixing them in an extra-large bowl, then baking for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

In a large bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, six-grain flour, light brown sugar, coconut sugar, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.

This same mixture can also make 7 smaller loaves (different pans) which should be baked for an hour.

In another bowl, blend together the syrup, vegetable oil and pumpkin puree.
