Bones are rendered from donated horse on campus



former student donated his horse to the biology department so it could be rendered for its skeleton. The horse was suffering from an undiagnosed wasting disease and was dying from kidney failure. On Aug. 13 the horse was brought to an outdoor enclosure next to the Des Lauriers Labs where a veterinarian then put the horse to sleep. Then a group of current and past Chaffey biologists proceeded to render the horse. “We needed to get as much of the soft tissue off as possible,” said Robin Ikeda, a biology professor who headed the project. Because so many students were involved in the rendering, small groups worked on each part of the horse. Ikeda worked on the trunk of the horse the majority of the time. “It was exciting,” said Ikeda. “The anatomy was so vivid...we don’t normally get specimens this large.” Ikeda thought that this was a great learning experience for the biology students who

worked on the horse. She trained the students on how to render the limbs. “I had never dissected anything so large and fresh,” said Helen Caparell, a zoology major. Brittany Tarabek, a biochemistry major, had quite a shocking experience while working on one of the legs. “When I was cutting into the leg, the muscle twitched,” Tarabek said. Ikeda made every step of the way a learning opportunity. The rendering itself gave students a detailed look at the anatomy of the horse. After the rendering, Ikeda used various parts of the skeleton as examples in her vertebrate zoology classes. Even the reconstruction of the skeleton will be a learning opportunity. Next semester Ikeda will let her vertebrate zoology students have the option of building the horse skeleton for their semester project. A number of other renderings have taken place on campus. Aside from the whale skull in Zimmerman Hall, all of the animal skeletons in the biology classrooms have been rendered on campus and have been constructed by biology students.

Chaffey crash: student loses control STEVE BOVI


Driver Abel Rodriguez said the incident was bad luck.


student lost control of his pickup while exiting campus onto Haven Avenue from College Drive on Oct. 14 at about 12:30 p.m. The pickup crashed and flipped over, destroying part of the railing along the sidewalk. Abel Rodriguez, the driver, said the incident was purely bad luck. “I was turning, and the street was wet,” Rodriguez, said. “I lost control. I couldn’t control the truck.”

He said he was not speeding, and it had rained that morning. Two passengers and Rodriguez all three walked away unhurt. The good news stops here, however. Because situations like this one are all too common. Steve Relph, Rancho Cucamonga Public Works Maintenance Supervisor, said that things need to change. “The problem is that people come from the turn pockets, and can’t make the corner,” he said. Three to four accidents are caused by students each year, a number Relph believes is too high.

Garlic consumption Raw (not cooked) garlic should only be eaten by chewing it in the mouth no more than two-to-four times a week because it is a toxic food. Do not eat it every day. Cooked garlic destroys the cells within the garlic, thus destroying its benefits. Garlic extract is safe to be taken daily and has positive effects.

Halloween fun with cars and candy

A safer way to trick or treat David Walker


veryone is invited to the Chaffey College Car Club’s first annual “Trunk-or-Treat” on Saturday, Oct. 31. The club will be hosting some of the hottest rides filled with goodies. But beware of the “Trailer of Terror!” The event is not exclusive to any year, make or model. Participants need only bring candy in their car’s trunks if they want to participate. Cars must be driven (cannot be brought in on a trailer) to the auto technology parking lot. The goal of this event is to provide a safe environment for children to trick or treat and get the amount of candy that would require visiting 48 houses. “In other words, there will be lots of candy in a very short amount of time,” said club adviser Sherm Taylor. The event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Participants will receive free entry vouchers to the April 2010 car show. For more information contact Taylor at 909-6526860.

Navarro directs college Honors Program


Daniel Solis

he Honors Program has a new director who hopes to increase student involvement and productivity. Carmen Navarro is in her third year as a full-time teacher in the Communications Department. She has been involved in education for more than 24 years and holds a bachelor’s in journalism from Cal State LA, a master’s in communication studies also from Cal State LA, as well as four adult teaching credentials through the UCLA Extension program. As the new director of the Honors Program, Navarro’s goals include greater computerization of information for students, more email communication with honors students and to improve the efficiency of students who hope to complete the program. Although there is a 3.0 GPA minimum to be eligible for the Honors Program, Navarro emphasizes that even if students are not eligible to participate in the program, it can help students to raise their GPAs and guide them to join the program in the future.

One area of concern for Navarro was the challenge of “trying to have all eligible Chaffey students participate in the program,” she said. She also added that the Honors Program can “help students with the transfer process, and all applications.” “Carmen is a woman of substance and character,” Eva Rose, the Honors Program's previous director, said. “The Honors Program is already doing well under her and now PTK will become a great honor’s society.” Navarro also reminds students interested in the Honors Program that, “we’re waiting for you because you matter.” Students with questions should visit the Honors Program office at SSA-122 where Peg Slagel is available to help students. The Honors Program will hold a dinner on Saturday, Nov. 7 at 5:15 p.m. Students interested can sign up in the Honors Office.

Green event spurs green ideas on campus


Nancy Avila

n hopes of creating environmental awareness and achieving sustainability on campus, the college is undertaking various green initiatives. One of these includes attendance at the Community College Summit at the Pasadena Convention Center on Oct. 5-7. Green Technology, a non-profit initiative created to communicate government efforts toward sustainability, hosted the event. The 3-day summit placed the spotlight on all the aspects of the dynamic green market, exhibiting information on green construction, energy efficiency and green job training. Julie Sanchez, Chaffey’s Green Earth Movement tri-chair, was present at the event. She attended the potpourri track, which included a case histories workshop that detailed initiatives being undertaken by schools such as Mission College and Santa Barbara City Colleges. “We learned about what others schools who are more sustainable are doing, and gathered ideas about how Chaffey can progress in its own effort to become more sustainable,” Sanchez said. John Rojo, ASCC Senator, also attended the potpourri track. “It was very inspiring to learn about the green actions other colleges are taking,” Rojo said. “For example, Mission College is implementing green building methods, and Santa Barbara City College is proposing the usage of solar energy and undertaking other small initiatives.” Sanchez also attended the integrated water resources workshop that revealed information about water conservation.

Top 10 Horror Films A funny thing happened... KURTIS FROST


1.) The Thing (John Carpenter remake) The scariest movies are ones that you do not know what is chasing you. John Carpenter’s remake of the classic horror movie The Thing takes a blend of Invasion of the Body Snatchers mixed with classic monster films. Some scenes will send chills down your spine. 2.) The Fly (original & remake) This film follows a man who is testing a transporting machine. While testing it, a fly sneaks into the chamber and our protagonist’s DNA is fused with a fly. Whether it is the 1958 original with Vincent Price or the remake in 1986 with Jeff Goldblum, it is a great story with amazing suspense. 3.) Night of the Living Dead (original) There is nothing more horror than zombies. They can take over anyone, and all you can do is aim for the head. This movie may not be as scary as modern horror, but a classic that can hold its own in content and suspense. 4.) 28 Days Later A modern Zombie film taking a comatose man waking up after 28 days to find the world he’s known over run by zombies. This movie does amazing costume jobs for the zombies. The zombies run (which adds extra fear compared to mindless stumbling around) and the film has an entertaining plot to keep you on the edge of your seat. 5.) Nightmare on Elm Street This movie follows Freddy Kruger, a serial killer burned by a group of parents, and he comes back to attack the children in their dreams. It is really scary because no one can protect you in your dreams, and it is Freddy’s world to control and terrify. Sequels go down hill, but the original is good and is being revamped soon. 6.) Psycho (original) An amazing Alford Hitchcock original. This movie follows crazed Norman Bates killing people because of his dead mother. Maybe it’s not that scary for modern times, but take into effect that this film was based on murderer Ed Gein, a schizophrenic who killed people because he saw his dead mother. When this is seen from the aspect of being (loosely) based on a true story, it adds to the fear. 7.) Halloween (original and Rob Zombie version) Mitchell Myers, a murderer institutionalized since childhood, escapes and goes on a killing spree. The fact that the killer in these films is close to 7 feet tall and has a blank white mask adds a certain form of unstoppable terror. 8.) Scream It’s a typical high school slasher film taken from a new aspect: a killer who is obsessed with horror films. The killer calls you up and plays games with your life. It gives that campy horror film feel, while still delivering in suspense and gore (avoid the sequels). 9.) Return of the living dead It’s a Cheesy ‘80s zombie film that involves punk rock kids and a grave yard. What sets this film apart is it takes place in a world where zombies cannot be killed. You shoot the head, it still comes; you cut off the arm, the arm climbs after you; and worst of all they talk and are semi-intelligent. This is added in with its special form of comedy, making viewers laugh and scream at the same time. 10.) Paranormal Activity The first well-done, first-person film, very little blood and gore but intense suspense. The fact that there is nothing anyone can do to stop this entity gives the viewer the feeling of opening Pandora’s Box.

Festive celebration for Hispanic heritage AMBER YASIN


he celebration for the Hispanic heritage held in the quad Oct. 15 brought awareness of the different types of Hispanic culture. “The turnout was good,” Senator Andrea Cabrera said. “Everyone got food. A couple of students were dancing to the music.” Booths served tacos, burritos, rice and other foods of Hispanic cultures. Aztec dancers provided entertainment while Spanish salsa music played in the background. Posters depicting major Hispanic people of influence such as Supreme Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor were on display while flags from different Hispanic countries flew. “The event went very well,” Senator Sullivan Lewis said. “There were over 200 students.” The event, originally scheduled for Oct. 14, was moved because of rain. ASCC members were determined not to cancel the event. “We were very excited for Las Prisas willing to provide the food for the event,” said ASCC President James Applewhite II. “Celebration of the Hispanic Heritage month was a great way for students to experience the culture.”

Paper has lead role in CUT



JUSTIN PEARCE In Pantheon, Pearce focuses on human anatomy and fantasy where he transforms paper-cut female doll figures with a variety of tattoos for the viewers to examine.

DANA MAIDEN Maiden manipulates her work, Plastic Mountain, which is made of life-size photographs of white, mass-produced, stackable, plastic chairs, glued onto foam board, then stacked up in compelling positions. According to Maiden, this concept expresses her interest in photography and is meant to blur the line between photography and sculpture.

he Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art presents CUT: Makings of Removal, an exhibition featuring 15 contemporary artists. CUT is free, open to the public and will be on view through Nov. 21. Featured artists in the exhibition include David Adey, Noriko Ambe, Ginny Bishton, Lecia Dole-Recio, Adam Fowler, Dinh Q Lê, Simone Lourenço, Dana Maiden, Pepe Mar, Chris Natrop, Justin Pearce, Leigh Salgado, Fran Siegel, Jane South, and Deb Whistler. Paper is often a commodity taken for granted; its versatility is endless and its use widespread. It is used and abused in our daily lives. CUT: Makings of Removal gives paper one more attribute centered on the removal, layering, and reduction of hand-cut paper to re-contextualize and transform the medium from its original form. Director and Curator of the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art, Rebecca Trawick was interested in bringing the exhibition to Chaffey College because of its “unique strategy … that allows the viewer a moment of wonder and perhaps confusion that is really exciting.” Art historian and professor John Machado observes that while the early-20th century modernist tradition of additive collage remains present, where printed textiles, newspaper articles, photographs and everyday objects are attached to the surface of an artwork, such as the Synthetic Cubist works of Picasso and Braque and the anti-art experiments of Dada, CUT makes a marked departure through its reductive technique of cutting, removing and uncovering. CUT features 31, two and three-dimensional paper-made artworks constructed in time-consuming, labor-intensive, detail and process-oriented approaches that blur forms of sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, installation, and collage. Although each artwork uses paper as its primary material, they touch on a range of themes — social, political, technological, environmental, religious, historical and human exploration. Abstract art forms are created that are diverse yet unified in composition. Each artist pushes to reinvent an ordinary piece of paper to produce a new way of seeing and interpreting his or her art. Lecia Dole-Recio, Chris Natrop and Leigh Salgado experiment with the play of negative and positive spaces in their abstract visual images, which provoke a unique reaction in each viewer. Pepe Mar’s Torco Cojo (Crippled Bull) and Double Face are “collage monsters” of crafty, colorfully vibrant, dynamic angles that create a hardto-miss visual presence in the museum. Adam Fowler and Noriko Ambe experiment with the intricate layers of “topographical scenes” that show the interplay of masses and voids. Ambe states her intention in part is “about placing human beings in synchronicity with nature.” David Adey makes a pop culture social commentary using magazine covers of high profile celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears, using visible bare skin of his subjects he dissects each figure with craft punches of various shapes and then reassembles them together with pins in Styrofoam like laboratory specimens. CUT delivers a range of subject matters where subtraction and removal is emphasized, simultaneously highlighting the importance and use of paper. The free exhibition on campus makes art and the museum accessible to students, and offers a breathable break from classroom fatigue. For details visit www.chaffey.edu/wignall or call (909)652-6493.

DINH Q LÊ Temptation of Saint Anthony is Din Q Lé’s woven tri-piece.

No Halloween spirit What was and could be again



Andrea Smith

Halloween spirit is alive on campus. Life-size mannequin atop student’s vehicle.

Veterans face roadblocks


ver the last few years, I have noticed a decline in Halloween participation. I am not sure how this happened, but it has to stop. Halloween is a day of togetherness. People dress up as whatever they feel will symbolize their deepest wants or current interests. Whether the costumes are goofy, scary or revealing, the feeling of joy and mystique fill the air for one night every year. However, costume shops are having trouble with sales this year. I have heard several reasons for this, but it is all rubbish. Some blame the economy. Yet, the best costumes are homemade. Others say that Halloween night is dangerous. This cannot be true. There are literally dozens of chaperones walking the streets. The only children in real

danger obviously have lazy parents. Finally, there are people who make the claim that Halloween is bad for growing minds. They say it is a distraction from learning. Wrong, again. Look at the classic characters that make appearances on Halloween. Dracula, Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s monster and the Mummy are usually seen this time of year. They are all from different parts of the world, each with its own interesting folklore. This demonstrates history and geography. Trick or treaters map out their journey in a stunning independent use of math. Then, the next day, the children get a chance to practice rationing, barter and restraint in regard to candy hordes. There really is no good reason to dismiss Halloween. Spread the word to everyone you meet. Tell them to bring back Halloween.


eterans sacrifice blood, sweat, tears and may even give the ultimate sacrifice, their life, in service of their country. They spend long days and nights on the front lines in some of the darkest corners of the world. They provide hope and freedom to people who live in oppression. They gladly endure extreme cold and heat so that friends and family back home can enjoy the freedoms to which they have grown accustomed. Along with the sacrifices that veterans make, they also receive benefits. One of the benefits they receive is the G. I. bill. The bill is for veterans who want to further their education. The way the bill works is for the veteran to submit an application on www.G.I.Bill.gov, then enroll in a community college, university or vocational school. Once enrolled, veterans receive money for their education. In my particular case, I served eight years in the U. S. Army and served in Iraq during Operation Enduring Freedom. Upon coming home from my Iraq deployment, I enrolled in a university and took the necessary steps to receive G.I. Bill benefits. After attending school for a year I took a break for about four years because of a new job. This year I decided to come back to school and enrolled at Chaffey College. When I called the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to find out about changing schools, I was told I needed to fill out a VA-22-1995 form and submit it online. The VA told me it would take six weeks to process the claim, and when I received my letter of eligibility, I needed to submit the letter to the school. The school would need to fill out a VA form 22-1999 (enrollment certification) and submit it to the VA. I made an appointment to meet with a counselor (for veterans) to submit the letter of eligibility. The counselor would not accept the letter and informed me that I needed to submit copies of transcripts, DD214 and a veteran’s information card for each semester attended. The counselor said these are requirements the VA needs before starting the benefits and the process takes 30-60 days. I called the VA back to verify the requirements and the agency confirmed that all I needed was the enrollment certification. Is this how Chaffey thanks veterans — by making the process more difficult for them while they try to collect the benefits they have earned?

Transfer candidates learn about options at fair



he Transfer Center put on an impressive display for the students at the transfer fair on Oct. 8. A total of 33 colleges attended to educate students about their college or university. Jenny Dannelley, director of the Transfer Center, was happy with the outcome of the fair. “This year a lot of the schools we scheduled had to back out because of the low economy, and their budget didn’t allow them to make it,” she said. “However six schools came as a last minute add-in so it worked out for the best.” The fair brought out all students from the veterans to the freshmen. Jeff Inman is a three-year Chaffey student that visited the fair for the first time this year. “I haven’t really spoken to any colleges yet,” he said. “I’m only picking up some packets and flyers; I just want to attend a good school that’s close to home.” Some of the first-year students eager to move to the next level even showed up to see some of their possibilities. Freshman Derrion Davis was one of the first people to show up at the fair and gain information. “I like the fair, but I think it could be better because there aren’t too many big colleges here,” he said. “I would like to see more of them.” Liz Lopez, a representative of UC Riverside, enjoys educating the students about her school. “This fair really helps students because schools are really bearing down on their

acceptance of transferring students,” she said. “This shows them what they need to do in order to ensure that they can transfer successfully. As usual, the Career Center co-mingled with the Transfer Center for the event. About 10 companies were trying to recruit people, including UPS and the armed services. The career center allows students to gain information about how to better their chances for employment and how to ensure job security. The center hopes one day to break away from the transfer center and start its own fair.

Spanish language: the ties that bind us Daniel Solis


s part of National Hispanic Heritage Month, Spanish teacher Tamari Jenkins gave a presentation about the history of the Spanish language on Oct. 7 in the ASCC Student Activities Lounge. In the presentation, titled, “Los Lazos que Nos Unen,” or The Ties That Bind Us, Jenkins gave a historical timeline of the Spanish language across continents and its influences from other cultures. Jenkins started off her presentation saying, “Language is language as long as it enables communication.” A few of the cultures the Spanish language has influence from are the Moors, Sephardic Jews, Africa, indigenous cultures in North America, and even in Europe. Spanish speakers and students would be surprised to know that many words in the Spanish language originate from languages spanning the entire globe. Jenkins also noted that some of the words Spanish speakers use casually today like “textear,” to text, and “chatear,” to chat, are not real words, but made up words used in “Spanglish.” Indigenous words from languages like Nahuatl, used by natives in the middle of Mexico, also have influenced Spanish. Spanish words like “tomate,” tomato, “chipotle,” a type of chili, are similar to words in Nahuatl. At the end of the presentation, Jenkins took questions. Breanna Jones, a journalism major, asked, “How long did it take [Jenkins] to become fluent in Spanish?” Jenkins an-


swered, “A variety of experiences that increased my fluency, including nine months in Spain.” Mercedes Limon, a Spanish teacher, commented on “how the black culture is ignored” in Spanish, and she was most interested how “many words come from different languages and cultures.” Elizabeth Deweese, an administration of justice major, noted that she “wasn’t aware how many slaves were shipped to Brazil during the slave trade.” That is one aspect of slavery often minimized by the North American slave trade, explained Jenkins in her presentation. Jenkins closed by reminding the audience that despite cultural differences, “we should put stereotypes aside” and that “we are citizens of the world.” She added, “La misma culture,” or the same culture.

KurtisWatch: The saga continues ANGELICA DAVALOS


ust like many other students around campus, Kurtis is missing. It is a plague that is hitting not only our school, but many community colleges around the state. According to the U.S. News & World Report, “Thirty percent of college and university students drop out after their first year. Half never graduate, and college completion rates in the United States have been stalled for more than three decades.” Although KurtisWatch was a project brought by The Chaffey Breeze, it was a tactic to get students involved with our website and CARLOS ACOSTA what is going on at school.

Get on Fast Track with Auto Tech David Walker



Austin Jones, Rigo Pineda and Willie Grant work on wheel balancing during auto tech class.

Halloween taken too seriously

tudents who intend to obtain an Automotive Technology certificate should think before considering UTI or any other program other than Chaffey’s own: Fast Track. Fast Track is a one-year certificate program that turns out students much faster than UTI and does not cost over $30,000. Students who complete the Fast Track are much more likely to become employed by competent mechanic shops than their counterparts from UTI. When an employer needs help, Sherm Taylor, director of High Performance Engine Building, is the person to consult before going to any other source. It makes sense because more than 90 percent of the students who begin their study walk out with a certificate. “Many start at a very basic level with Bruce Osbourn and finish with my program at the high performance level,â€? Taylor said. The main objective of the Fast Track program is to turn out highly competent individuals who are immediately productive emphasizing on ethics and safety. The Fast Track certificate is not exclusively for people who already have backgrounds in automotive technology. For more information, contact Taylor at 909-652-6860.Â

Volleyball team takes care of business at home Spencer Hirsch


he Panthers picked up a big win against conference opponent Rio Hondo at home Oct. 14. The match proved to be a family feud, as Panthers’ head coach Larry Chowen faced off against his daughter Teddi Esko’s team. The two teams traded wins in games one and two, but the Panthers stole the show in the last two games to win the match, 3-1. Chowen has great respect for his daughter as a coach. “She always makes it a terrific match,” Chowen said. Chowen was proud of his team’s performance, saying that the ladies hung in there and did what they needed to do to win. Freshmen Ronni Jernigan and Nicole Ethridge set their teammates up well the whole game. Jernigan had 19 assists, while Ethridge had 25. “I was pretty happy with my game tonight,” Jernigan said. “I got some really big hitters that Fernando Sarabia I know have got my back.” Freshmen Marylynn Thomann, Lillian Maina Freshman Marylynn Thomann spikes ball on Rio Hondo defendand Angel Brandon were the big hitters at the ers during Panthers’ Oct. 14 victory. forefront of those assists.

Thomann had 11 kills, Maina had 12 and Brandon led all with 14. The Panthers lost 3-2 in an epic match against conference opponent College of the Desert Oct. 16. The team came back from a 2-0 deficit but dropped the all important fifth game to Desert 10-15. The Panthers played inconsistent but had what it took to beat Mt. Sac 3-1 in their fifth conference match of the season Oct. 21. “We played like an accordion,” Chowen said, “real good and real bad in spurts.” Freshman player Taylor Crockwell was determined to win the match. “We had much more low points than we should have had,” Crockwell said. “We will not accept losing. It’s a pride thing.” Freshman player Lillian Maina led the Panthers in kills with 10. Maina feels that slamming the ball is the best thing to get the team up when they have been down. The Panthers took on conference opponent Victor Valley College in an away game Oct. 23. Check out the Panther athletic page at www. chaffey.edu for results. The next home game will be Wednesday, Nov. 4, at 5 p.m. against Antelope Valley.

anthers in the pool took it to conference opponent El Camino College in a 15-4 rout at home Oct. 14. The visitors presented no problems for the Panthers at all as they led the entire game. The first half summed up the Panthers’ dominating performance. They jumped out to a 12-3 lead, coasting along in the second half to an easy victory. The Panthers had a well-balanced scoring attack. Eight different players scored at least one goal. Freshman Kadee Patterson was the team’s leading scorer with four goals, while fellow freshman Ashley Dorrego led the team in assists with three. Dorrego added to the mix on the scoring end with three goals of her own. Dorrego has been a huge asset for the Panthers this season on the offensive end. She is currently the third leading scorer in the state. It was a big day for freshman player Amanda Quinonez as she scored a rare goal.

“I never usually score, so it felt nice,” Quinonez said. “It was extra special because it was on my birthday.” Head Coach Jim Dopf saw improvement in his team. He felt they countered better against El Camino than they had against previous opponents. Dopf was also pleased with his team’s 66-percent success rate on offensive man-ups. Sophomore Jamie Jackson felt the offense clicked well and took advantage of El Camino’s mistakes. “We countered well,” Jackson said. The Panthers are clearly respected. They are currently ranked seventh in the state. The Citrus Tournament produced disappointing results for the Panthers on Oct. 16 and 17. The girls went 2-2, with an 8-7 overtime loss to Orange Coast and a 14-8 loss to conference foe Cerritos. The Panthers played in the Long Beach Tournament on Oct. 23 and 24. Check out the Panther athletic page at www.chaffey.edu for results. The next home games will take place in the South Coast Conference Tournament, held from Thursday, Nov. 5, through Saturday, Nov. 7.

That day, they would have a chance to mentor a group of young players who would in turn learn new skills and make new friends. At the request of the coach of the Upland Celtic Football Team (a “Club” team), the women were asked to join the high school aged women for an afternoon session of bonding, mentoring and fun.
