T

he Muslim Student Association was joined by a group of more than 30 students to celebrate Iftar on Aug. 26 at the Wignall Museum patio. “Iftar is the breaking of fast, which is done every day during Ramadan,” said club advisor Ryan Falcioni. “It’s a communal event, and it’s usually a potluck. So it’s a good type of event to open up to the public.” This celebration began at sunset with a brief prayer led by Biology major Burhan Adli, which was then preceded by participants eating a date. Several students engaged in Wudu before joining a group in prayer on the lawn outside of the Wignall. “Wudu is basically the concept of being cleansed before God,” Adli said. “From one prayer to the next, all the sins you did with your right hand, you wash with water and they become erased — (then) left hand erased and so on and so forth.” For a brief moment the celebration moved itself onto the lawn where

onlookers were intrigued with the prayer several people engaged in. “I thought it was really beautiful,” said religious studies major Catherine Maldonado. “Before the eyes of God they’re submitting themselves and they’re saying you’re greater than us; so let us bow to you in honor and respect.” Afterwards guests lined up to enjoy the potluck, which included American and ethnic food. Before beginning the night’s lecture, guests attentively listened to a recitation of The Koranin both in Arabic and English. This set the tone for guest speaker Amir Mertaban who began with an Arabic prayer, then proceeded to speak on Ramadan and briefly touched on what Islam is. “This is God teaching us how to develop the idea of controlling oneself,” said Mertaban. “You can stop any type of vice or ill in society because you’re training yourself to have self control.” The night ended with a brief Q&A session touching on the truths and myths of Islam.

Center for the Arts building officially opens MOSES ESTRADA

A

Students stroll down the steps at the new Arts building.

ROSALIND MORTON

mid the fanfare of the grand opening of the new $22.1 million Center for the Arts dedication ceremony on Aug 24, students, college dignitaries and the community at large received a guided tour of the new facility. The three-story building includes a lobby and alcoves that should encourage student to meet, study, and rehearse together. The artwork of many students covered the inner walls highlighted them. It underlines the recurring idea, stated by both Governing Board President Gary George and reiterated by Dr. Henry Shannon, President/Superintendent of Chaffey College, that the college is a “World class institution.” One of the many standouts is the postproductions lab equipped with state-ofthe-art Apple technology, raising the level of technical skills for students. “These computers are the Ferrari’s of Apple computers,” Network Technology Technician Kaleo Kelikani said. A new dance studio was showcased with its full-sized outdoor glass door that will allow outdoor seating space performances. The audience got to enjoy a demonstration featuring modern dance techniques by students in instructor Ron Brown’s class. The 46,000-square-foot building is complete with digital and photography studio with dark room and processing lab, audio lab, interior design lab, lecture rooms, and faculty offices. Other buildings include the new

5,500-square-foot music and choral building, designed with modern acoustics in mind. Existing facilities were also remodeled, upgrading the two-dimensional art and three-dimensional cermamics studios. Master of Ceremonies at the opening ceremonies was Michael Dinielli, interim dean for the Schools of Language Arts and Visual, Performing & Communication Arts. He referenced the day’s event to the Beatles’ song, “The Long and Winding Road.” The song focused on the foreshadowing of the group’s break-up, according the Dinielli, but he focused on the beginning, not the ending. “I want to use that song as a reference to the long and winding road that was needed to complete the six building Center for the Arts complex,” he said. The connection was made for those that saw the construction that started back on Feb 25, 2008 and then completed in December 2009. Board President George spoke about the Measure L bond that voters in the Chaffey College district passed in March 2002 to fund the construction, which continues in other areas of the main campus. Others speakers followed including President Shannon, Faculty Senate President Ardon Alger and art history professor and coordinator John Machado. They shared encouraging words about the college, including a brief history of the direction of the Center for the Arts. They also honored professor Vera Dunwoody for her special contributions. She was project manager for interior spaces in the center.

His brave testimony shed light on a troubling issue that not only affected him but many other veterans across the nation. Words were put into action that same month as Coon was asked to join a committee, and plans for a Veteran’s Resource Center on campus were drawn up. “We want veterans to come to school at Chaffey, and there will be a place to communicate their frustrations and successes,” says Coon. “It’s where veterans can come together and reach out to each other.” The maximum fee by term for Chaffey students is $2,264.75. To collect the money a veteran must put in an application, send a DD214 form (discharge papers), contact Veteran Program Check at the counseling center, receive the Chaffey Veteran information card and finally submit eligibility notice for the department they choose to study. To check on the status of one’s claim there is a GI Bill hotline. The average wait time is 30 minutes, and that is if the call gets through. The administration at Chaffey is working to change all that.  The Veteran’s Resource Center will be a place for veterans run by veterans. Opening on or before this Veteran’s Day co-chair Dr. Lori Waite is optimistic for the future. “This resource center will make it easier for Veterans and help streamline things,” says Waite. Along with the center, a Veteran’s Club will be started to help veterans adjust to civilian and college life. The club has activities such as bowling and picnics already lined up. They are open to the public so people can stop by to support their friends who risked everything to protect them.

Auto tech students protest axed classes They take grievances to Rancho City Council Virginia Lucero

S

everal students marched in protest to the office of Sid Burke, Dean of Business and Applied Technology, on May 17 in an effort to have their Automotive Collision Repair classes reinstated for the 2010 fall semester. Leading them was student Donovan Caver. The purpose of the protest seemed to turn against them when Dean Burke could not give them any answers to their questions about the classes being cut at that time. The discontinued classes would make it impossible for the students to finish the vocational program they had hoped would qualify them to acquire employment. For some students this class was the only class they needed to complete their vocational certificate.

“This was a waste of time,” said Isaac Rojas in regard to all the classes he had taken and not being able to finish and receive his certificate. The students left Burke’s office disheartened, some showing the strain on their faces. Caver did not give up, but continued to pursue his goal of getting the classes reinstated. Before the students went to talk to Burke, Caver had circulated a petition with 189 signatures of students to bring attention to their plight. The petition was sent to Burke, Student Council and Dr. Shannon, but no one responded to their petition. “When I bought my book they said it was good for four years and now the class is cut,” said Preston Pierre. After failing to get the attention of the college, Caver stepped it up and decided to go to the Rancho Cucamonga City Coun-

cil meeting on May 19 in hope of finding some help for the other students and him. In a calm demeanor, Caver presented the students’ situation before Mayor Don Kurth, the city council members and the audience that was gathered that night. He had taken several copies of The Breeze, to give to Mayor Kurth and each council member, because he wanted them to read an article which appeared in the May 3 edition about the cutbacks to the program. In the foyer, just outside the main city council chambers, some members of the audience and city government officials approached Caver to encourage him and ask him questions. The city council meeting went on until after 10 p.m. The monthly meeting is also televised on a local cable station. Shortly after Caver’s appearance at the city council meeting, he received a personal telephone call from Burke letting him know that the classes had been reinstated. The other students were individually called by Burke’s office with the same message. The outcome of the students’ fight for their classes seems to have had a successful ending. However, at the beginning of this semester when the students returned they were confronted with some facility changes which had a negative effect on the students’ ability to have access to the classroom space, tools, and equipment needed for the classes. The details of the students’ ongoing struggle will be continued in the next edition of The Breeze.

A plaque in memory of former student Deborah Dorsett has been moved to a new site in the science complex.

W

ith all of the hectic rush of campus life as well with the priorities in classes it can be easy to forget to sit back and enjoy the view. With all the construction on campus it is hard to do even that. Students can take pride in that fact that a new grove will start construction this September. The current aviary is somewhat desolate and overgrown with weeds. In the weeks to come an irrigation system will be added as well as new plant life.  One object that stands out is the  placard dedicated to Deborah Dorsett. Mrs Dorsett herself was a student at Chaffey during the mid 1970s. She had a deep love of sciences and animals. “She was a prime example of how community colleges help everyone,” Professor Robin Ikeda said.  Dorsett then went to Cal State Fullerton and received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Sadly, while returning from a research site she was killed in a car accident. Her family then created a memorial fund to help buy a new roof for the old aviary. When the aviary was demolished her placard was moved to the new site.  Her memory and contributions to the college will always be remembered.

Discovering the uncanny Wignall Museum of Contemprary Art

NANCY AVILA

O

n display now through Sept. 25 at the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art is Even Better Than the Real Thing: The Art of the Uncanny. The exhibition focuses on reconstructing perception through the artistic technique of “defamiliarization,” which coerces the viewers to rebel against their traditional perceptions and examine objects with a renewed and uncanny perspective. The exhibition features the work of Jon Bonser, Joe Davidson, Ben Jackel, Kiel Johnson, Nina Katchadourian, Rebecca Morales, Kristen Morgin, Kaz Oshiro, Derek Parker, Andy Ralph, Laura Splan, and Stephanie Syjuco. Among the objects included in the exhibition are an empty cardboard box, a wooden ladder, a foldable chair, and screws and nails. Despite their realistic characteristics, all objects were scrupulously handcrafted. By portraying familiar objects in a new and unusual light, the exhibition awakens new sensations that would normally not arise from encounters with these common, everyday items. The viewers are manipulated to look twice at these simple objects they would otherwise pay no attention to in their daily lives.    “It’s deceiving to the eye. Who would have thought a face mask could be sewn into a night gown?” Jessica Flores, a psychology major, said about one of the art pieces. A walk-through with the exhibition’s guest curator, Jennifer Frias, the assistant curator of Sweeney Art Gallery at UCR, will be held on Sept. 22 at 6 p.m. The exhibition and walk-through are free and open to the public.

Out in the heat to eat

R

eturning students aren’t very pleased with the new changes in the food court. In spring of 2010, The Breeze published an article about the new Michael Alexander Campus Center. The $9 million building will include many facilities and a brand new cafeteria with air-conditioning. It’s scheduled to open in the Fall of 2011. Unfortunately, what was once exciting news has now become a nightmare for students. With no cafeteria and an abundance of detours, students are now left with very limited food selections, expensive prices and the miserable heat. Despite the frustrations of dealing with crowds during the first week of school, some did whatever they could to dodge the sun. While some gathered in the Global Career Center to keep cool, others sat on the floor throughout the lobby and ate their lunch. The school has made good efforts in providing students with a variety of lunch alternatives. By bringing on board a variety of food venders in the hopes to keep everyone on campus satisfied at lunch time.

chaffeybreeze.com | Sept. 7, 2010 Although food vendors are scheduled to change on a weekly basis, students are upset because they have not been able to obtain a schedule with this information. Among the participating vendors are Carl’s Jr, Domino’s Pizza, Chick-fil-A and Angelina’s Cafe and Catering. Despite complaints about the heat, noise, long lines and unhealthy food selections, Kao Iong, second year major, had a different outlook on the situation. “The best thing we can do is be patient,” Iong said. Having lunch in the hot center campus is certainly uncomfortable. Iong says that everything will be better once construction is over and the new cafeteria is open. “I had Angelina’s,” Iong said. He commended Angelina’s for their bread quality. Michelle Kusta, owner of Angelina’s, is doing everything she can to accommodate her customers. She

made sure to move her company tarp over her customers to keep them cool. Even though some students dropped out of lines due to the heat, her business was a success, she said. Keeping record of what customers purchase the most helps Kusta decide what to put on the menu. Kusta’s chicken salad seems to be the one getting all the attention. Although most lunch vendor’s aren’t offering credit card transactions, Kusta plans to begin accommodating this necessity soon. Enjoying his Domino’s pizza under a little shady tree was Robert Gastelum, Network Administrator Specialist. Gastelum is looking forward to the facilities the new cafeteria will offer. “There’s going to be a Starbucks in the new cafeteria,” said Gastelum. Despite the steep lunch prices, Gastelum was pleased not to spend more than $4 for a personal size cheese pie. Throughout lunch, complaints about the

noise and long lines under limited shade continued. Like many, student Courtney Ray found the madness of the construction to be a nuisance. “The noise is inappropriate,” Ray said. “I feel like they could work harder on finishing it faster,” she said. Justine Eulloqui, chemistry major, says this year is bad. Because of detours and long lunch lines, it takes too long to get to class. “Look at that table,” Kaytlyn Dushnowski, business major said. “No one is sitting there cause it’s in the sun.” Although there are tarps that seem to be helping people keep cool, there aren’t enough tables in the shade. With much work to be done, the construction crews are scheduled by to complete their work by next summer. Unfortunately, students will have to wait patiently throughout the excruciating heat. All in all, Camilo Ramirez, a film major, said it best. “I just want to eat, that’s all!” He ended up going home and skipping all of the confusion.

The Fashion Edit

With the economy at a flat, keep your fashion where it’s at.

ERIC BALTAZAR

W

ith the start of the fall semester, there are several expenses that are sure to choke your wallet. The cost of tuition, books, parking and supplies can leave you with little or no money. Although many of you have probably experienced it first hand, it is sometimes hard to find a solution to look good in this troubling economy.  Well, I am here to tell you that there is a simple solution for this problem that will not have you blow your cash, or your fashion. So you are probably wondering: How is this even possible? Coming from a shopaholic, I have spent much time and money on clothes that not even my closet could handle. Seeing that I needed to make room in my closet, I decided to donate my unwanted clothes to the thrift store. As I dropped the bag full of clothes off to one of the clerks, I noticed something spectacular from the corner of my eye.: the greatest looking navy blue vest. I curiously moved towards the navy vest and my jaw dropped when I saw the price. On a bright yellow piece of paper, in big bold numbers it read 99 cents. This vest looked like it came out of a high-priced department store, and I bought it for less than a tenth of the price. Immediately, my love for thrift stores commenced. Many people think there is a stigma that comes along with thrift stores, but slowly it is becoming a trend. Many well known stores are replicating the look and feel of items that are usually found at thrift stores, and the amazing part is that when you buy something at a thrift store, it is one of a kind. Although many people are not comfortable in visiting local thrift stores,  here are a few  tips and tricks I have found for keeping that high end look and your spending low.

With less than $5 you have yourself an outfit, or multiple outfits, that make great additions to your closet. Remember to always have fun when you are shopping. The last thing you want to do is become frustrated. Thrift stores have a variety of fashions and sizes available to fit any style. The good thing about thrift store shopping is that if you don’t find anything you like the first time around, they receive new clothes continuously, so remember to always check back.

Men’s Tips:

Look for fitted button-up shirts with different patterns. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Adding a simple tie, bow tie, or belt can change a whole look. Beige belt- 99 cents Beige bow tie- 98 cents Navy blue button -up shirt- 1 dollar and 98 cents

Women’s Tips: AFTER

Look for long skirts or oversized shirts that can be fitted into a dress. Don’t forget to look in the men’s shirt section for oversized shirts. Turning a long skirt into a dress and adding a belt to cinch the waist can create a complete look. Black and white long skirt- 2 dollars and 98 cents Black belt with golden buckle- 58 cents

JOSHUA HICKEN here are some things you just can’t learn from copying a whiteboard. These things the faculty know from education and experience: they’re our deserved inheritance. They’re tangents, tips, and trivia. They’re advice about how to live through college years, or precious tidbits about what’s really going on. But those tidbits don’t quite belong in the syllabus. They belong off the whiteboard. “Off the whiteboard” brings those tidbits to you. Our first provider is Dr. Henry Shannon, collge president. Q — So, how long have you served as president? A — I started here Sept. 1, 2007, so it’ll be three years tomorrow. Q — What changes have you seen at Chaffey since you’ve been president? A — I think that we have really experienced a renaissance in respect to continuing to build out Measure L projects, both the new and renovated facilities that have come on board since 2007...you can see the things that have occurred just in the last few months: we dedicated the arts complex last week, and before that the sports complex, and then we opened the Chino campus and extended the Fontana campus. One thing that I’ve seen in the last three years has been the budget crawl that we’ve

seen in the state. Even though the demand for our courses and programs are at the highest that I’ve seen, the funding has been some of the lowest that I’ve seen. That’s probably been the biggest challenge for us. Q — What advice do you have for students, particularly new students? A — Get to know your instructor, and his or her expectations. Read the syllabus. Go to class; spend the appropriate time you need to study. Use our success centers that we have on the campuses. Develop a schedule, especially if you just finished high school, you’re used to a very specific routine, so develop a routine. Also balance your academics with your social life – it’s important to have a wellrounded college experience, so engage yourself in co-curricular experiences as well. Think about where you’re going to transfer, and find out what they expect of you course wise. Above all, have fun while you learn. Have a good experience. I think probably the best time I’ve had in my life was going to college. You have a chance to meet people, along with the faculty. We have a quality faculty...great support facilities...you can’t find labs like ours in some of the four-year university colleges across the country. Q — Is there any different advice you would give to returning students? A — Mostly the same thing...but for returning students, make sure you begin to think about what’s your next step. I would think about doing a five or ten-year plan, just like we have an educational plan. Have a life plan. Talk with a counselor...get the experience to know where you want to be in your life. Time’s gonna pass, so how you use the time that you have is so critical. The quality of the experience you have here depends greatly on you. So I would say to a returning student, if you’ve had great success, continue that. If you need to get some remedial assistance,

find where you need to go...the people here want you to succeed, so how can that be done best? By asking questions. Talk with student activities, with counseling, with faculty members that you’ve gotten to know. Look around the campus, enjoy the experience, but think about where you’re going to be five years from now. Q — Do you have any particular suggestions for students that are working full-time while going to school? A — If you can afford it, look at the financial aid programs and limit your work. The work that you should be focusing on is getting your degree or certificate completed, and you don’t want to let your job interfere with that, if at all possible. I know it’s hard balancing work and school...but the best way to complete it is to get as many hours [at school] as you can and work less if possible financially. This is where I think our financial aid can help. Q — What would you say to students who are disgruntled about parking: having to wander around construction, having to look for a parking space, that kind of thing? A — Well we just opened up a parking lot in the Northeast sector. It was closed because of construction this summer. I would say get to school as early as possible, and there’s ample parking, but it may not be by your first classroom’s door. I’m always one to think about wellness, so if you think in terms of parking in or around the campus...there’s three things that concern students typically, and it’s been that way for the 35 or 20 years that I’ve been in education: parking, cafeteria food and the price of books. If you go to most universities those are the three major things students are concerned about...we try to make sure that there is ample parking here, and there is ample parking. It may not be as convenient as you want it to be to your classroom door, but get there early and we’ll make sure you find ample space to park.

Dr. Henry Shannon.

The renovated parking lot is there now, and we’re also converting a new space that will be part of the Omnitrans complex next summer, so there will be another space for parking. If you go to Chino or Fontana, there is a parking challenge – especially in Chino. So be patient, kind of stay with it, and you’ll find your parking space. My other advice is to limit your parking in the neighborhoods. Neighbors get very disgruntled when people park in their neighborhoods on an ongoing basis...that’s a major problem we’ve had the last few years. Q — I think that’s all I have prepared for you, is there anything you wanted to ask me? A — No, no, I just want you to hang in there and stay with Chaffey. Get a degree completed, try to balance your work and your school as well...right now you’re investing in yourself, and it’ll make a big difference in the future. Education is really the key. Q — I appreciate that, and I appreciate you taking the time for this interview. I don’t know how long you were expecting it to run but... A - That’s ok. It’s worth it.

A noteworthy couple Lyrically, each song on We’re Having Fun Now has a downer, depressive tone ohnny Cash and June Carter. Sonny that is masked under the carefree sound and Cher. Win Butler and Regine very reminiscent of a happy Beach Boys Chassagne of Arcade Fire. Real- tune. In the opening track, “Scissor life couples that venture out into making Runner,” Rice sings the highs and lows of music together have always been prone blind love. “She ain’t a Princess but she’s to success. Jenny Lewis and Johnathan an artist/ Painting a portrait all over my Rice, under the simple moniker Jenny and heart.” While Lewis sings back “Colors Johnny, have now joined the ranks with bleeding/ so deceiving.” their country-rock debut We’re Having In “Big Wave,” a song about credit debt Fun Now. and the American Dream, Lewis’ raw voice sings “Living your life in the gray is the new American way/ are you a ghost or a credit card slave?” Even though Rice sings as much as Lewis on the Album, Jenny effortlessly steals the spotlight. In “My Pet Snakes” Lewis and Rice touch on the jealousy in the past: Rice croons “Sleeping in a twin bed with a serpent by your side.” But even with all the ups and downs in the debut, Lewis and Rice’s chemistry is undeniable. If you want to check Jenny and Johnny out live, they will be opening up for Belle and Sebastian at the Hollywood Palladium on Oct 3 and will be headlining at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on Oct 5. - WARNER BROTHERS RECORDS STEVEN SANTOS

Starcraft 2 on course - BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT

JAMES CALLEJA

I

t has been 12 years since the original release of Starcraft. Starcraft is considered to be so balanced that it would be impossible to improve it. The original game and its expansion pack, Brood War, are so revered that they are the national sport for South Korea. For 12 years, Blizzard has been tinkering and improving the perfect game. Starcraft 2 will definitely not disappoint. The single-player portion of the sequel is significantly improved over the original. Instead of following all three races (Protoss, Terran and Zerg), players follow the story of resistance leader, Jim Raynor. While it seems we’re cheated out of game content, separating the story lines allows greater detail of leading characters. Not only are players allowed to experience the character complexities of Jim Raynor; they are able to see his base of operations and his crew. Starcraft 2’s missions are carried out in

Raynor’s base, a Battlecruiser called the Hyperion. Navigating through the ship and interacting with the world gives players a more immersive experience. Gone are the days of immersion through chat windows and mission dialogue. The mission system is open-ended, rewarding players with better technology for succeeding. Another addition is the research system. By completing side objectives and certain missions, players can spend points to upgrade their base and technology with perks. Fans of the multiplayer portion will find many improvements, especially through the interface. Finding games is a cinch with the new queue system, and ranked games place you into brackets based on your performance. A new friends list allows players to party with friends and enemies. Alongside the better interface, the multiplayer component is solid. Nothing has changed to the core gameplay, besides minor adjustments to units. Why fix what isn’t broken?

New campus food service is unacceptable SARA GODING

How to stay entertained in our economy

D

uring this fall semester, a variety of vendors grace our presence with delicious treats. The vendors include Angelina’s, Chef Tom’s, Buckboard BBQ & Grill and Panda Express. Unfortunately, the delicious food is overshadowed by the lack of places to enjoy it. The food is not bad, as long as you do not mind the not-always-welcomed sideeffects of massive weight gain, heartburn, and indigestion. No cases of diarrhea have been reported as of yet, and the student health center gives their official seal of approval. The cafeteria once located on the north side of the campus has been demolished. The new cafeteria is under construction, which leaves students without an indoor place to eat.

The administration has put forth minimal effort in accommodating the student body. The main source of protection from the elements is entrusted to the alwayspopular Panther Club Café, which proudly serves Starbucks, and two EZ-Up tents. The café can sit 40 lucky people, which is roughly .0018 percent of currently enrolled students. “We are currently working on a structure that will be completed approximately November this year,” said Director of Auxiliary Services, Jared Ceja. “It will be located west of the Health Sciences Building. The foundation has already been laid and it’s looking to hit that estimated November date.” November? It is hot now. It does not take a meteorologist to predict that it would be hot in August. Not to mention the rainy season that is sure to not only delay the construction of said structure, but also

to ruin my fellow student’s homework and more importantly, their hair. The new cafeteria is not set to be opened until fall 2011. A smart person would more than likely not quit their job until they had found a new one, so why not apply this same logic to the comfort of the students? It seems that the administration was ill-prepared and fell short of planning. Food brings people together. It is the one language we all speak. Good food without a sufficient facility to enjoy it together is like having a badass car with the gas tank super glued shut. It only goes so far. The administration and faculty enjoy their meals in heavenly 72 degree temperature-controlled rooms, which the students pay for with their tuition money. Maybe it would not be such a bad idea to open up the teacher’s lounge.

KURTIS FROST

T

he economy sucks. A lot of people (especially college students) don’t have jobs or much money. Here are some great ways to keep yourself entertained and sane without breaking your wallet. 1. Start reading: Last time I went to the movie theater I wanted to keep it cheap. I spent over $20 on tickets for me and my girlfriend, then another $10 on a small popcorn and guess what? The movie sucked. There goes $30 that only took up two hours of my life, which was spent sighing. Solution? Start reading… you know…books? Classic literature has no copyright so it cheap (and usually good because it’s a classic). Even a new book will be cheaper than a movie, and you will always have the book to keep as a paperweight if it sucks. 2. Learn an instrument: Now this may seem like a strange one because typically instruments are expensive, but if you are a beginner, you can go to a local music shop (I suggest Hi-Line Music just down Haven Ave.) and grab a beginner guitar or bass for around $100 (not to mention ukuleles, harmonicas and many other instruments that you can start learning for under $40). Your instrument will always be there if you want to try to learn and there will always be more to learn. A decent size investment, but it is an investment for life.

You were created for a purpose. For 60 years, California Baptist University has been helping students understand and engage their purpose by providing a Christ-centered educational experience that integrates academics with spiritual and social development opportunities. If you are looking for a life-changing college experience that will provide the path for you to live your purpose, find out more about CBU today. Daytime, evening and online classes available. Chaffey students welcome.

3. Start writing: Writing is free (even if it’s bad), so grab a pen and do something productive. If you are bored, that is usually the time when people get creative. Think of it, how many ideas have come up when you have been sitting around doing nothing. It will keep you entertained and who knows? It may be your way out of being poor.

If most people look at their budgets they will see how much is spent on frivolous things that don’t last. Now I am not suggesting cutting all the frivolous things from your life; the frivolous things are what make life fun sometimes. But if you are having trouble with your budget in this hard time, it is probably a good idea to take a second look at your spending.

Lines, lines everywhere... but not a space to park

Signs and tickets do nothing to help the students find parking at the beginning of another busy semester. Josh L’heureux

I

t is nice to finally see that the college is contributing money to correct the parking situation. Rather than being given places to park, students have finally been given the signs to tell them what they did not know: all of the parking lots are full! What’s an even greater gesture of kindness from the college administration is that, in case a student cannot read, there are now well-dressed men and women in neon-colored hats and vests, standing at the entrances to the parking lots and simply saying “Sorry, no parking.” It’s this kind of compassion from the

college that alleviates the heat and tiresome walk from the dirt “parking lot,” called overflow parking, to students’ respective classes. They even painted white lines on the dirt, so students can finally understand the etiquette of parking. It is the greatest gift of all. Classes are being pushed to capacity. There is still no janitorial service in the classrooms. The cafeteria has been replaced with outdoor-heated vending services, and College Drive was closed, forcing students to use a one-way traffic system. But at least we have been told that there is no parking. Now you know.

Panther women impressive in season opener Greg Woodson

I

t was an impressive start for the women’s soccer team season as the panthers prevailed in a 3-1 victory over the El Camino Warriors on Friday, Aug. 27, at Chaffey College.

It was an overall good showing for the Panthers as they controlled the tempo of the game for the most part throughout the first and second half. Sophomore Captain Yvette Salas brought her A-game to the field, leading the way for the Lady Panthers scoring two of their three goals. Salas a mid-fielder,

scored on an incredible shot from right outside the 18 and also on a 1-on-1 breakaway. “I think for our first game we did pretty well. There were some things that we could have done better, but for it being our first game I think we played well,” said Salas. Freshman (Def) Whitney Haymaker also scored a goal for the Panthers in the victory over the Warriors.

“I’m pretty happy with the way we played today,” said Head Coach Grace Curtrona. “I think it was a good way to start the season. The first game is always good for finding your team’s strengths and weaknesses, but overall, we played a pretty good game.” Chaffey is 1-0 with the season opener victory and will play College of the Sequoias on Friday, Sept. 10, at 2 p.m.

Men’s soccer comes up short in debut against El Camino, 1-0 Greg Woodson   t was a rough way to start for the Panthers as they lost the season opener on their home field 1-0 to El Camino College Warriors on Friday, Aug. 27. No one team or superstar controlled Friday’s battle between Chaffey and El Camino, but the Warriors scored an early goal near the 15th minute of the first half that proved to be the deciding factor . The goal was scored on a low cross pass that entered uncontested and was driven right past the outreached hands of Panther’s goal keeper Richard Duran. Chaffey was caught sleeping on a play that turned out to be the most important one of the game. Although, the Warriors were on the attack for much of the first half, the Panthers managed to stay in the game with a strong defensive effort. The Panthers best scoring opportunity came near the 45th minute of the first half when freshman forward Bryan Rivera broke loose and drove a shot that just missed hitting the top of the goal post. But the second half was a different story for the Panthers. Chaffey came into the second half of the match with a different attitude. Three minutes into the half Panther’s forward Steven Ritchie was on the

break and sent a cross pass to Rivera who drove a header that was saved on a spectacular play made by the El Camino goal keeper, Daniel Herrera. Rivera didn’t stop there. He seemed to be involved in every meaningful play for the Panthers in the second half. He continued to attack along with the rest of the Panthers, nearly scoring on a striking shot that missed again off the top post near the 15th minute of the second half. Rivera and the Panthers had various shots on goal throughout the second half but just could not manage to get any luck to come their way. With time approaching the final minutes, Chaffey had one last chance to score. Rivera struck a header toward the El Camino goal keeper who once more made the save in dramatic fashion, which proved to seal the deal for the Warriors. “We had a tough first half. In the second half we came out with a lot more intensity,” said Ritchie. “We played more like a team in the second half and it showed. We just have to bring the same intensity that we had in the second half into our next game.” The Panthers will play Moorpark at Chaffey College  on Friday, Sept. 10, at  4 p.m. 

he volleyball team played their hearts out as they defeated Southwestern on Sept. 1. Despite losing the first two sets, the girls came back to dominate Southwestern in the next three sets. The first set was a game of rallies from both squads. Southwestern came out strong and ended up having a 19-13 lead until Chaffey rallied back and made it 22-21. This didn’t phase Southwestern one bit as they scored the next three points and ended up taking the set 25-22. The second set was all Southwestern as Chaffey seemed to be losing confidence. Southwestern came out to an early lead (7-3) until Chaffey rallied back once again and came within one by making it 9-8. From this point on, Southwestern worked together and dictated the rest of the

set ultimately winning 25-15. Realizing that they were closing in on another loss, the lady panthers found their abilities and commanded the next 3 sets, 25-13, 25-21, and 15-11. Southwestern took many timeouts in the last three sets as Chaffey was beginning to fight back. “We came out with more enthusiasm and focus,” said freshman Alyssa Hill about the difference between their first and second games. “We talked a lot more and communicated a lot more.” Head Coach Larry Chowen was proud of his team and feels this year’s team is going to be a lot different from last year’s. “This year is a fun group,” said Chowen. “Last year’s was miserable. The kids didn’t care. All they cared about was tattoos and everything like that.” Chaffey will travel to Grossmont on Friday Sept. 3 at 5 p.m. to try to improve their record to 2-1.
