Setting summer straight
ith all the budget problems affecting California’s economy, Chaffey has been forced to reduce and adjust its class offerings. Students will be able to view their summer registration date beginning Friday May 7. With all these reductions in classes, students have been wondering whether or not they can register for more than one class. “Registration is going to be exactly the same,” said Hope Eli, administrative assistant to the office of the Dean of Instructional Programs and Services. “Students can register full-time. It’s just going to be difficult because there is a lot less classes this summer.” Students will be able to register for a total of seven units. A total of 160 sections will be offered during the 2010 Summer Session, as opposed to the estimated 550
courses which are usually offered. This is a 67-percent decrease from the Summer Session in 2009. “This really sucks,” said drama major Dj Watzon. “I wanted to be able to take two classes so I could have a few extra credits under my belt.” Each class that will be offered is considered a core course. This means that each class satisfies at least one certificate, graduation, or transfer requirement. All campuses will be open Monday through Thursday during the months of June and July. They will be closed on Fridays and Sundays. The Success Centers and the library will be open on Saturdays on the Rancho campus. “Don’t wait,” said Ell. “The longer you wait to register, the more classes that are going to be gone.” For more information on Summer Session 2010, visit www.chaffey.edu.

Graduates celebrate at 2010 Grad Fest April Church
haffey celebrated its 2nd annual Grad Fest Wednesday, April 28 to assist graduates in the process of purchasing cap and gowns and other souvenirs for that big day, graduation. Several vendors offered discounted items that were not offered anywhere else, and students also received little giveaways. There was a barbeque held at the event to help raised money to support next year’s Grad Fest. Other programs on campus such as the Bookstore contributed support to the students by providing supplies and assistance to the relatives of the graduates. “Being the coordinator of the Grad Fest, we like to keep things flowing and easy for the graduates,” said Jared Ceja, director of Auxiliary Services. Soon-to-be graduates were offered everything they need for that big day. The students’ faces were filled with excitement as they approached the line to retrieve their items; parents came out to support
their loved ones and make the process smoother. Despite the stress of finals and budget cuts, students said they were eager to walk across the lawn to receive their certificates and degrees. 500 students will be graduating this spring on Tuesday, May 25. “Leadership is what we are known for. There have been many faculty and staff working very hard to make this ceremonial event smooth, the students have worked hard and we must reward them,” said Dr. Henry Shannon.
Jared Ceja coordinated Grad Fest.

Retirees total 1,000+ years of service VIRGINIA LUCERO ROSALIND MORTON
he Sports Center was abuzz April 20 with excitement as this year’s retirees were celebrated for their service and commitment to the college. The Center was decorated with a sports theme with red and black school color motif. This year the number of retirees reached a record number of 42, largely because of budget cuts and a a substantial monetary early retirement package. “We are grateful to them for their caring and dedication to this institution,” Superintendent/President Dr. Henry D. Shannon said in a prepared statement. “We wish each of them well on their future paths, wherever they may lead.” This year’s celebration honored retirees with a combined employment totaling approximately 1,100 years. Family, friends and co-workers gathered to honor retiring academic, administrative/management and classified employees. After enjoying a buffet luncheon, each retiree was announced by emcees Ardon Alger, president of the Faculty Senate, and Lissa Napoli, administrative assistant at the Chaffey Foundation.

quite emotional, tearful expressions. Each person was given only two minutes to try to express what their employment at Chaffey meant to them. Tears of joy and thankfulness were shed as they reminisced. Among the 42 retirees, the years of service ranged from six to 37 years. Joan Robertson of the Visual, Performing and Communication Arts said the first thing that she is planning to do is travel to Iowa for her 45th class reunion. Robertson began her employment on October, 1973, and has a total of 37 years of service. She had the longest employment among all the retirees. Marylee Requa of the sociology department said, “This place is filled with caring dedicated people. I am coming back to take classes as a student.” Requa started on September, 1979, and rertires with 31 years of service.

Yet, I am sure we will master this challenge.”

2010 Summer Movies: What to watch for JOSHUA L’HEUREUX
obert Downy Jr. returns to the big screen as Iron Man in Iron Man 2 along side such Hollywood powerhouse names such as Don Cheatle, Mickey Rourke, and Scarlett Johanson. Tony Stark has gone public revealing his identity as Iron Man while the implications of his identity begin to form as Whiplash, played by Mickey Rourke, undertakes the task of killing the helmeted hero. Iron Man 2 debuts on the silver screen May 7. Aldous Snow, played by Russell Brand, has forgotten Sarah Marshall, and Aaron Green, played by Jonah Hill, needs to get him from England to the Greek Theater for an anniversary show. Get Him to the Greek looks to be the hilarious vulgar comedy of the summer with a cast including Sean Combs, Lars Ulrich, Christina Aguilera, Pharell, and Rose Byrne. Get Him to the Greek will be released upon audiences June 4. It has been 15 years since the birth of Toy Story and on June 18 the final chapter of the loveable duo of Woody and Buzz
Lightyear comes to theaters. The toys have traveled the road of being loved by a child, dealing with the knowledge that a teenager has no need for toys, to now when their owner, Andy, is an adult and going to college. The toys find themselves in the care of a preschool, meeting new toys and missing the love they have grown accustomed to. Toy Story 3 is the last and final chapter of the toys for worldwide audiences. From the mind of Christopher Nolan, the creator of The Dark Knight and Memento, comes the seemingly cerebral action film Inception. It is difficult to clearly define what this film is about. Judging by the trailers, audiences will see Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page amid folding cityscapes and rotating rooms. Judging by Nolan’s resume this is a film one cannot miss. The film will explain itself in theaters July 16. The Expendables is the action film closing the summer movie box office, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steve
Austin, Mickey Rourke, and Dolph Lundgren. The Expendables are a group of freelanced mercenaries with a talent and license to kill. The film will be the blood flying, adrenaline powered, highly explosive film fans of action movies have been waiting on for some time now. The world will see The Expendables in action on August 13.

he Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art held an opening reception on Wednesday April 21 for its annual Student Invitational exhibition, which will run through May 22. The free exhibition presents a collection of different artworks featuring 10 carefully selected Chaffey students: Camille Alaras, David Alekhougie, Irene Diaz, Shakisaha Harvey, Nick Jones, Hansi Martinez, Brad Sackett, Alaina Sharpshair, Ashley Vanbrunt and Minh Vo. This year’s compilation of artwork includes illustrations, digital photography, mixed media works, yarn figurines, a cardboard boudoir, an intricate web of PVC material and a floor to ceiling comic strip. With the help of Misty Burruel, the instructional adviser for the participants of the Student Invitational, the exhibit provides student artists with a constructive experience in displaying their work in a professional setting. The students make decisions regarding wall colors, lighting effects and the positioning of their pieces in the gallery. “This is an opportunity for students
to be self-reflective,” Burruel said. “It’s a chance to look at their process and what it means to contribute to the invitational.” The diverse collection of pieces reveals the extravagant creativity of the student artists. In a series of paintings, Shakisaha Harvey pushed the boundaries of religious views by depicting women from the Bible in a mutant and extremely sexual manner. “Women from the Bible are portrayed either as whores or as martyrs because they have a sexual identity,” Harvey said. “As a feminist, I feel that women are not portrayed correctly in society, and I exaggerate those stereotypes in my work.” “I think all the artwork is pretty cool and original,” Chaffey student James LeBlanc said as he walked through the gallery. “I really liked the spider-looking thing that casts shadows,” he said. The “spider-looking thing” is “Creation,” a complex construction made of PVC material that resembles a skeletal frame with jagged edges. Strategically placed lights create the dramatic effect of shadows in the background. “Overall, I like the fact that we each asserted our own personalities and uniqueness in our work,” Minh Vo, creator of “Creation,” said. “As you can see, everyone’s works are large because we are ambitious, which is what makes this show very strong.” “The exhibition is very diverse in mediums, culture and points of view, which is the spirit of making art and the spirit of Chaffey College,” Burruel said.
Campus Threads: T
he winner of the Campus Threads Makeover contest was Ana Nuño. I took a look at Ana’s picture before the makeover to get an idea of her style and what I wanted to change. Right away I decided her hair needed more volume and texture, and for the clothes I wanted something to elongate her torso and have a slimming effect. For Ana’s body type, wearing skinny jeans can be tricky, as well as short skirts which can emphasize the midsection. Wearing longer and layered shirts creates length and draws the focus away from the tummy. We met up with Ana at Victoria Gardens for a 4:15 p.m. hair appointment for a cut and style at Ulta salon, done by stylist Taryn. Ana’s excitement about the makeover was shaded with trepidation, but she relaxed a little when her hair was done. Taryn did an amazing job and created layers and waves in Ana’s previously flat hair. After roaming the shops for a while, we took Ana to Macy’s to have her makeup done. With a tentative outfit pictured in my head, I wanted Ana’s makeup to emphasize her eyes, but not be overwhelming. I told this to makeup artist Monisha, saying
I wanted a rocker chic look, yet subtle enough to wear during the day. Monisha did all that and more, and at the end of it Ana was glowing. Once the makeup was done, we headed to Reflection to buy some shoes. Starting an outfit with shoes may seem unusual, but it often helps to plan around a certain item. Ana said she was leaning towards a classy look with an edge to it, and she mentioned liking a rocker style. With that as a bit of inspiration, I selected a dark pair of heels with golden studs. If you get stuck picking out shoes for a new look, try a style out of your comfort zone. Ana’s confidence seemed to rise once she had the shoes on, and we went straight to Mode Plus to pick out an outfit as awesome as the new shoes. Right away I spotted a great look, but I grabbed an armful of clothes just to give Ana options. She still seemed a little nervous, but a few compliments from other women in the dressing room gave her a boost of confidence, and the transformation was complete. “I feel so special,” Ana said “I can’t stop smiling.” More than giving her a new, dazzling look, her smile was the desired result and the best fashion accessory.

Earth Day celebration inspires green movement on campus DANIEL SOLIS
unny skies and warm weather joined students in the main quad on April 26 to celebrate the annual Earth Day celebration. Booths sponsored by local ‘green’ businesses handed out information encouraging students to be more environmentally conscious. Nationally, this year marked the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, which first began in 1970 to give a voice to those concerned about the environment. Preschoolers from the Child Development Center took part in an arts and crafts project, recycling old cereal boxes to make notebook folders. The Changing the Globe Club used a solar oven to bake brownies. Moses Estrada, an agricultural science major, sold “stetta chicken,” a vegetarian alternative to real chicken. “We’d like to provide a healthy, delicious alternative for students who want to eat better. Healthy food should be synonymous with delicious food,” said Estrada. Mike Maestras, controls analyst from the Cucamonga Valley Water District, dem-
onstrated a sample water pump, showing how water is pumped up from the ground, and then cleaned of any harmful materials. Erin Morales, with the Cucamonga Valley Water District Frontier Project, said, “The mission of the Cucamonga Valley Water District is to save water and protect our environment.” Earl Davis and Christine Gabriel of the Green Earth Movement Committee on campus promoted their endeavours to make Chaffey a greener campus. The GEM Committee hopes to provide healthy food choices for next semester when the cafeteria will no longer be in operation. Burrtec Waste Industries had sample recycling materials on hand to show students how plastic and aluminum are recycled to create new products. Vincent Montano, sales representative and waste and recycling consultant for Burrtec, displayed the recycled materials, including artificial grass made from recycled tires. “It is very educational, and if you really take it in, you can live a happier life,” said student Jennifer Won.
The GEM Committee showed off their natural gas powered 2008 Honda Civic purchased by the ASCC.
Free food was offered at the Earth Day event, giving examples to students on how to eat healthy.

As a Silver Panther (baby boomer), I was intrigued when I read of a gerontology conference, “Links for Life,” offered by Chaffey’s Gerontology program on April 23. As part of the aging boomer generation that is expected to dominate our demographic picture, I thought, “Wow, this conference is about me! Better find out what’s in store for us.” The conference pulled together academics, professionals, students and people from the community to show students the opportunities in a wide-ranging field expected to grow exponentially. Much of it was like a pep rally, touting job satisfaction as a major benefit of the field. Catherine Bacus of the Gerontology Program pointed to the fact that America is getting older. As seniors age, their needs will create challenges and problems for them and their families. The upside of this demographic change is that there will be jobs created, especially in caring for frail older adults, often at the end of their lives. “Don’t worry,” she said about the current recession. “[The jobs] will come.” Chaffey College appears to be in the forefront of this wave. It is one of 15 out of the 110 California community colleges that offer a gerontology program. Some of the classes are designed for members of the community as well as for professional development, for example, a class helping students deal with family members who have dementia. The keynote speaker of the conference

Cutbacks: Automotive class on the chopping block EDDIE WANTLAND
onavan Caver and Preston Pierce both approached The Breeze several weeks ago with regard to doing a story about the budget cuts affecting the Business and Applied Technology. Although The Breeze has published numerous stories on budget cuts to programs on campus, this marks the first time this semester that students have proactively come to newspaper office with a desire for their plight to be heard. For this particular department, it is a sticky situation as full-time professor Bob Carlson has accepted a retirement package effective at the conclusion of the spring 2010 semester. With the backdrop of a hiring freeze occurring throughout the college due to budget cuts in education, it seems that the classes Professor Carlson instructs are on their final weeks of life support.
The college administration has set to hold an evaluation meeting for these classes, but no dates or times for when these evaluations will take place have been given. Although it has been stated that the administration will pursue one of three options that include placing the sections taught by Carlson on an “indefinite hold,” “winding down the department” or closing the program down all together. In the meantime Caver and Pierce have approached the college president with a 120-signature petition. But in light of the fact that none of the sections currently being taught by Carlson are being offered on the Fall 2010 schedule of classes, it is highly unlikely that those signatures will make a difference as to whether or not his classes will be resuscitated. Such cuts in education and increases in tuition have been occurring statewide as the effects of the recession continue to
be felt. On March 4th organizers declared “strike and day of action to defend public education.” The ensuing March 22 rally in Sacramento that included 27 Chaffey College students. For students currently attending the Chaffey School of Business and Applied Technology, transferring to other colleges such as Mt. San Antonio College and Riverside Community College that offer similar programs, is an option. However, doing so seamlessly is difficult as the curriculum of other programs vary at each institution. To this end, they may find themselves having to repeat classes, prolonging their graduation. As demand for education continues, students face continued obstacles for supply at Chaffey College as summer curriculum has been reduced from a robust 490 sections to an anemic 162 sections. But as the

Clark selected to perform faculty lecture of the year AMBER YASIN
he faculty lecture of the year was held on April 20. Art history professor Orville O. Clarke, Jr. was selected to be the speaker. Clarke was recently nominated for the California’s Educator of the Year and he is also been an art critic for nearly two decades. The lecture was attended by about 250 faculty members and students. The topic of the lecture was passion. Clarke focused on many individuals who were extremely passionate about what they did and how their result came out to be brilliant. Clarke covered broad range of art topics during his lecture with an energetic upbeat
attitude and enthusiasm. This was not just a simple lecture for him but more of a “wondrous journey of self-discovery.” The lecture started out with Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was “one of the greatest leaders in our country’s history,” according to Clarke. Clarke discussed composer Anton Dvorak and his Cello Concerto in B Minor. One of Dvorak pieces was played for a few minutes. Clark also presented a brief biography of artists such as Chuck Close, Pablo Picasso, Jan Van Eyck, and Diego Velasquez and their passion for art, which resulted in magnificent art pieces. Filmmaker Budd Boetticher and his documentary Aruzza, which was about
one of the world’s famous bullfighters and rejoneador (a person who fights bulls from a horse), Carlos Aruzza. It took twelve years for Boetticher to make his documentary. Other of his work such as The Bullfighter and the Lady and also Ranown Cylce were mentioned. Clarke discussed about his former Professor Albert Hoxie who inspired him about art in Hoxie’s unique interesting yet very entertaining way of teaching. “Alber Hoxie‘s passion for history and art touched me and changed my life,” said Clarke. He realized that we all [teachers] bring passion to campus each day. “We are making students a little more
tolerant and a little more inquisitive, making them citizens of the world. We are giving them the knowledge to find their passion that will carry them on throughout their lives. We are giving them the confidence to make positive changes in the direction of their lives. Our passion, day by day and student by student, is changing the world for the better,” Clarke said. After the lecture a discussion was held for an hour, where discussion about art and passion were conversed more in depth and detail. “It was a huge honor. I was flattered to be selected by the faculty. It was a humbling experience,” said Clarke. “If we don‘t have a culture in this world, we‘re going down a bad road.”

Understanding ‘Dollars and Sense’ Gennevy Galindo
quiet group of students gathered together in the Campus Center West staff dining room for the Dollars and Sense workshop on April 22. California Certified Public Accountant Tracy Wirtes discussed topics ranging from creating a budget, achieving financial goals, and the dangers behind credit cards. A brief video by CalCPA, Money Talks, demonstrated to students the lack of financial literacy among the general public. A majority of the people interviewed lacked knowledge in regard to their personal finances. “I really need to start planning for my future. For me and my son,” said Business major Stephanie Romero. “It’s time to get on the ball.” Wirtes emphasized the importance
of establishing a budget, and keeping track of where and how money is spent. “Your budget is limited,” said Wirtes. “You have to choose what is more important, that’s when you look back and look at your financial goals.” Credit cards offer both advantages and disadvantages for its users. While they allow consumers to make purchases, the interest rate and late fees are realities that might sometimes get overlooked. Identity theft and credit fraud are threats. Everyone is vulnerable. “Check your information every day, check it every other day,” said Wirtes. “Protect your information.” This workshop was presented by California Society Certified Public Accountants Institute and coordinated by the Financial Aid Department.

Taco (Bell) to you later APRIL KIBBE
espite the inconvenience of no hot food on campus for about a year and a half, students can look forward to the new Michael Alexander Campus Center in the spring of 2012. Due to the architectural design, the original plans to break ground in 2009 were pushed back. Jared G. Ceja, director of Auxiliary Services, is excited about the new center. He says it will offer more options for students and give students a studious and friendly atmosphere. “The current building is dated,” Ceja said. The project is estimated to cost $9 million. Funding was provided by bonds that are strictly to be utilized for the campuses construction needs. This construction will not affect student tuition or textbook prices, but is instead paid through local property taxes. “The project is comprehensive,” said Ceja. Insuring that the new contracting

vendors will meet all the legal and health requirements will be thoroughly reviewed. The Auxiliary Department will insure that vendors, such as the Bookstore, will continue to offer student employment. The two-story building will offer 16,454 square feet of space for faculty, staff and students. The center will bring everything closer with enough room to fit the growing student population. Not only will students have a new building to enjoy, they will also have access to a new convenience store in the west side of the campus near Wargin Hall. Students will have the opportunity to enjoy the luxury of a coffee bar and dining in a new cafeteria with music and TV on the first floor. EOPS (Educational Opportunity Programs and Services), student government and career service will be relocated to the second floor of the new building As part of the process, Taco Bell served its last meal on campus on April 29. This will begin the process leading to the demolition of the old cafeteria. Matthew Mancha, business and anthropology major, would like to see healthier options on the menu. “I like Taco Bell, but we need more nutritional value,” he said. Mancha suggested that a Subway restaurant would be a great choice on campus. “They better bring Taco Bell back,” said Amy Dickens, who is studying to become a preschool teacher. Dickens relies on the convenience of the fast food on campus. “It’s cost effective,” she said. Odila Andaya, manager of Taco Bell said that she will miss her job, friends and students. “I’ve worked here for three years,” she said. Although Andaya is prepared to move on, she feels bad that she will no longer be working in the upbeat environment of the college. Despite the sadness of leaving, Jose De La Cruz, Taco Bell employee of three years, is excited about the new building. He says he’ll be fine as he already has a second job. “Come visit me at Panda Express,” he said with a smile. Ann Banh, CC’s employee of four years, says that their contract is up and she doesn’t know if she will return. “I’ll come back,” she said. “If we start a new contract.” Although the old building is soon to be demolished, Ceja said that the new cafeteria will offer full services, especially if bidders such as Starbucks and The Coffee Bean decide to sign a contract..

Protesting taxes at tea party AIMEE MUNN JESSICA VASQUEZ
hile procrastinators were making a last-minute attempt to turn in their taxes, tax protestors gathered on the corner of Day Creek and Foothill to make their voices heard. The April 15 protest brought together not only conservative tea party demonstrators but also attracted libertarians, high school students and politically neutral but concerned citizens. “This is a public outreach to make it known that we’re asking Sacramento and Washington for a smaller limited government,” said Laura Boatright, official

organizer of the Inland Empire’s Tea Party movement. Protestors, some dressed as historical political figures of yesteryear’s Tea Party, lined both sides of Foothill and displayed their individual gripes on homemade posters and signs. Instead of making rude gestures, onlookers took pictures and honked their horns in support of the protest. “We see [the current] taxes as theft and immoral,” said Paul Darr representative of Libertarians in support of the Tea Party movement. “We’re for cutting taxes in different ways and spending governmental money in smarter means.” The collective intention for this community gathering was to voice the right of personal financial freedom and to oppose the projected health care situation. “We are losing our freedom to spend our money the way we want to because of the government takeover. The government is too intrusive in people’s lives and is taking care of too many people,” said Gaye Smith a Chaffey graduate. “We’ve been ignored, we have a voice,” said Marsha Tonner, one of the demonstrators. A main concern of many protestors is the provision for the elderly in the health bill. Noticing governmental deductions from one’s paycheck is something that workers of all ages feel. “My paycheck is being depleted. I am against Obamacare. Some sort of regulating mandate isn’t the right thing to institute. It is not constitutional,” said local student Matthew Toth, 19. Despite being below the voting age, high school student Joanna Vrotosos, 17 wanted in on the action, “I know I’m young,” she said, “but I am
aware of what’s going on, and I want my voice heard.” Paul Schrader, candidate for San Bernardino sheriff, was there to support protestors and listen to their concerns at the local government level. “I am here to let people know what I stand for… transparency and fiscal responsibility.” The efficacy of these concerned citizens will be revealed in the upcoming November election.

Panthers playing in the playoffs JEFF RANSON
n the way to the playoffs as the 2010 Foothill Conference champions the Panthers stomped Antelope Valley, 21-4 on April 29. In a game that featured 21 runs, on 18 hits, and just one error, the Panthers exposed Valleyâ€™s pitching staff. The game was relatively close throughout the first three innings 3-3. Panther freshman hurler Jeremy Weber settled down and began to exhibit great command of all of his pitches by the start of the fourth inning. It was the bottom of the fourth when the Panther offense exploded. Led by a Christopher Truitt walk, the Panthers produced five runs on six hits, running the score up to 8-3. Chaffey scored four more runs on four hits in the fifth inning, giving the Panthers a nine-run cushion. After giving up a triple, which resulted in one run in the six inning, Weber was removed for freshman reliever Berry Matthew, who finished the last three innings without giving up a run. The Panthers had a very productive eighth, led by freshman outfielder Ryan Cunninghamâ€™s three-run homer that helped generate a seven-run inning, putting the game out of reach in front of a enthusiastic home crowd. Chaffey will host the first round of the Foothill Conference Playoffs on May 7 and 8. The matchups have yet to be determined.
Berry Matthew winds up in relief of starter Jeremy Weber to finish the 21-4 victory over Antelope Valley College.
