Vote yes on Prop. 30 or Chaffey loses $4.4 million

VALEEN GONZALES

T

his November, voters can save the education system a quarter at a time. Prop. 30 is one of two competing ballot initiatives that will provide funding for education in California. Prop. 30 will fund K-12 and higher education, including the UC, CSU and community college system. The funding will come from a 1/4-percent increase in sales tax and an income tax increase on the top one percent of wage earners in the state. The sales tax increase amounts to 25 cents for every $100 spent. The income tax increase would affect single filers earning more than $250,000 per year and joint filers earning more than $500,000 per year. Prop. 30 is competing with Prop. 38. If both pass with more than 50 percent of the vote, the one with the higher percentage will get passed and the other will fail. Prop. 38 would give funds only to K-12 education by raising taxes on annual income higher than $7,000. In order to vote to fund higher education in addition to K-12 education, Californians must vote Yes on 30 and No on 38. Community colleges have suffered

many cuts since the beginning of the recession. They have fought to stay afloat through reduced funds from the state and reduced property tax revenue after the real estate bubble burst. If Prop. 30 fails, there will be even more cuts and less money to go around for schools. Chaffey College will lose $4.4 million in state funds if Prop. 30 fails. This would mean no summer session for the next two years and more than 200 classes would be cut, affecting more than 3,000 students.

Now is the time for Californians to step up and save higher education in the state. A quarter is a small investment that could bring big rewards. By investing in education from kindergarten through higher education, Californians are investing in their communities and their future. “Studies show that if we don’t have an educated working class, our economy will continue to go down,” Faculty Senate President Ardon Alger said. “We could lose profoundly.” Opponents of Prop. 30 state that there is no guarantee that the revenues will go

to education. That is a myth. The revenues for Prop. 30 will go into special accounts that state legislators can’t touch. Some of the funds can be used to pay down part of the state debt that is owed to education, also known as deferrals, but the majority of the funds will go to education and public safety funding. Prop. 30 funds cannot be used on salaries or benefits. Supporters of Prop. 30 include teaches, hospitals and nurses. Opponents of Prop 30 include billionaires. Follow the money. Prop. 30 is not a magic wand that will solve all the budget shortfalls in the education system. It will not bring billions of dollars of new funding into schools. What Prop. 30 will do is replace a lot of the funds that schools have lost and sorely need to get back on their feet. Prop. 30 will bring in a small amount of new funds for schools, but most of the money will just replace the huge losses schools have suffered. Californians must vote yes on Prop 30 to help schools stay afloat.

Tax hikes will further damage our pocketbooks

GIANNI MARASCO

C

alifornia already has the 5th highest sales tax in the country. Business owners leave the state every day because of the developing wasteland. Currently, Gov. Jerry Brown has proposed yet another tax hike to our already enormously high tax burdens in the form of Proposition 30 on the November ballot. Prop 30 promises more money for schools. However, after little scrutiny, one can see the disastrous repercussions that are sure to follow. At an 8 percent sales tax, California is well-above the national average of 6. California is among the highest states for cigarette tax at 87 cents. California is the third highest in gasoline tax with a 49 cent tax while the national average is around 27. Gov. Brown’s proposition would not only once again rely on the wealthy by tax-

ing people making more than $250,000 annually, and will raise everybody’s tax rate a shining fourth of a percent. Brown signed a budget plan dependent upon tax hikes and budget cuts. Throughout the year, Brown utterly assumes Californians will pass $8 billion in tax increases. He has blackmailed Californians by giving no other options but to either pass the bill heavily increasing taxes, or suffer immense school budget cuts. Most revile the thought of even more cuts on school spending, since academia has been getting hit hard financially for some time, therefore students and teachers are nearly obligated to vote yes. Brown’s plan was to cut school spending all along, when there are other alternatives. The real problem with our budget is excessive and wasteful spending. Despite California’s $13 billion deficit and 10.9 percent unemployment rate,

Brown and the Democratic-controlled California legislature continues with its negligent spending. Apparently, according to the once rightly dubbed Gov. Moonbeam, Brown believes a $68 billion bullet-train is vital to the state’s future. Another money-shredder called the CCMS, a computer program dedicated to the integration of courts data, is costing another $3 billion and will most likely be out of date when it goes into commission in 2016. These cash-eating projects could easily go toward school funding. Including unspent stimulus funds and needless school expansions, Sacramento just doesn’t seem to realize we’ve been flat broke for a long time. Some Chaffey students are voting yes on this proposal. However, many of them are acutely uninformed about its conditions and consequences, and even basic information about California. When asked

who the governor of California is, one student answered “Obama.” Most of them had at least heard of the “Income and Sales Tax Increase” proposition, but many had no inkling as to what it actually asserts. The students who had heard of the proposition, and said they would vote for it, only understood that money would be going toward school funding. This proposition does not even promise any money will be given to schools. They can take existing cash, then replace it with the newly taxed money. This liberal philosophy is only damaging the economy and depleting jobs. We need to use other methods to break out of this deficit, starting with ending this out-of-control spending. On the surface, Prop 30 sounds like a good thing. But, with some research about the current condition of California, one can see what a crippling proposal it really is.

Gay-Straight Alliance creates safe haven LUIS SUAREZ

On a recent meeting held by the GayStraight Alliance, the issues of depression, addiction, and suicide were discussed and members were able to share their stories. The GSA Club focuses on building an inclusive community by providing a place for people to speak up on LGBTQ issues and has become a safe haven for its members. Patrick Jimenez, president of the GSA Club, shared his story. Jimenez, who identifies himself as gay, admitted to have experienced depression and still does. “Primarily it had to do with the fact that I did not feel like I was a ‘man’ because I was gay and I felt that regardless of any other attributes I might have, if people re-

alized I was gay, I would be shunned by everyone, which has been true to a certain extent,” Jimenez said. The meeting was focused on the mental healthcare of its members. The topics discussed were based on the oppression that the LGBTQ community experiences, as well as the rejection experienced from family and friends. Jimenez also admitted to have experienced addiction, not with alcohol or drugs but for food. He has been working on this addiction and has had mixed results. “I probably would have experienced depression even if I was not gay due to my dysfunctional family, but being gay compounded these issues for me and hurt my self-image,” he said. This depression has been one of the rea-

sons that led to his addiction to food. Heterosexual members were there at the meeting, showing support for their friends and peers. It is an important aspect to the GSA as it has many active members who don’t identify as LGBTQ but are always there showing support for equality and embracing the rest of the members. The GSA club members who meet on Mondays from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Social Science Building Room 103 left being able to relate with each other as their stories connected even though they were different. Members leave meetings feeling less isolated by knowing that there is support out there from other people who are going through the same situation and other members who support them regardless of their sexual orientation.

payments will look like after graduating. Initially, in October, 2011 the CFPB distributed template drafts of the document and gathered responses and critiques from a variety of students, parents, financial aid administrators and higher learning professionals. They received more than 1,000 responses, and integrated some of the ideas to further streamline the document. This document eventually became the Shopping Sheet. On Sept. 25 the Department of Education revealed that more than 300 higher learning establishments have begun to utilize the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet for the 2013-2014 school year. “Our goal is to help students arrive at school each fall less worried about how they will pay for college and more focused on how they will complete college,” Secretary of Education Arne Duncan stated. Notably, there are more than 6,600 higher learning institutions. Higher Ed Watch claims that the greatest problem with the Shopping Sheet is the fact that it

is a voluntary program and schools are not actually required to implement it. There is one exception to the volunteer sign up program. An executive order by President Obama has made it a requirement that military and veteran education benefit programs are required to provide shopping sheets to individuals in their programs. Politicians have varying opinions about how to explain the process of financial aid in a comprehensive way to perspective students and their families. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minneasota) introduced bipartisan legislation to ensure that parents and students can decipher the difference between grants and loans and what is involved in the processes. “The White House’s introduction of a

Shopping for your future with financial aid packages

JANET TRENIER

When it comes to Financial Aid, there are many provisions to choose from when adding items to your shopping cart. Higher learning documents are encumbered with information on various grants, loans and tuition fees. They can confuse even the brightest of students. On July 24 the U.S. Department of Education and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) released The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet. “Ideally this shopping sheet could become a cover sheet for all financial aid packages,” Rachel Fishman of The New America Foundation, Higher Ed Watch blog, said. This tool was designed to give students a simpler way to navigate through the maze of financial information during the process of enrolling into higher learning institutions. The sheet will provide defined outlines for how the payment structures work with each institution and what a student’s loan

shopping sheet, also known as a universal financial aid award letter, is a step in the right direction,” Franken said. “Unless a universal financial aid award form is made mandatory, colleges will still be able to use whatever form they want, and families won’t be able to compare apples to apples.” In addition, there are no incentives given to colleges and universities that decide to incorporate it into their financial aid documentation. If made available, college students will now have a simplistic, one-page fact checking system available to them through the new Financial Aid Shopping Sheet.

A degree with a guarantee

CHARLES LEIGHTON

Students planning to transfer to a CSU have a new resource to aid them in their quest for higher education: adegreewithaguarantee.com. The site outlines a defined plan students can follow to earn an AA-T or AS-T degree, paving the way to a bachelor’s degree without unnecessary classes. “An Associate Degree for Transfer will ease the transfer process for California community college students to transfer to a CSU campus,” California Community Colleges Chancellor, Erik Skinner said. “ADegreeWithAGuarantee.com is the best place for students and parents to get information

about this exciting new program.” Students who complete an AA-T or AS-T are guaranteed admission into the CSU system as a junior, but not necessarily in their major. Students with a transfer degree from a community college will also be able to complete a bachelor’s degree at any CSU campus with 60 additional units. The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act, which was passed in 2010, requires collaboration between community colleges and CSU campuses, ensuring a smoother transition for students and expediting the transfer process. With defined class requirements clearly presented, each student will know exactly what is required to transfer.

Money talks during ‘Rock the Vote’ panel:

Discussion focus is on Propositions 30, 32 & 38 on November ballot VALEEN GONZALES The school’s budget is tight and could get even tighter. Administrators and students gathered in Student Activities on Oct. 10 for the Rock the Vote panel discussion sponsored by ASCC. They discussed the current budget situation and what the election on Nov. 6 could mean for students. Associate Professor Ryan Falcioni moderated the discussion as Interim Executive Director of Budget Services, Anita Undercoffer, Associate Superintendent of Instruction and Student Support Sherrie Guerrero, and Faculty Senate President Ardon Alger discussed some of the ballot initiatives and fielded questions from students. “We think of you first in everything we do,” Guerrero said. The panel discussed the current budget and how state deferrals have forced the school to tap into reserve funds. Deferrals occur when the state fails to send funds when they are due. The panel compared it

to an employer giving an employee their paycheck late. “We had a large reserve,” Guerrero said, “and we’ve tapped into it, so it’s dwindling.” Administrators budgeted conservatively for this year but warned there will be budget cuts of $4.4 million if Prop. 30 fails. These cuts would result in elimination of summer school and more than 200 classes. “We have been cut and cut and cut,” Alger said. “The anti-Prop. 30 ads make it look like we are living high on the hog, but that’s a lie.” Alger also discussed Prop. 32 and the differences between Prop. 30 and Prop. 38. The panel also addressed ways that the school has cut utilities spending by making energy efficient improvements to lights and buildings. Students were urged to make their voices heard on election day. “Get the word out,” Undercoffer said. “Get out there and vote.”

Shake your quake: Get prepared CHARLES LEIGHTON

At 10:18 a.m. on Oct. 18 students and faculty will participate in the Great California Shakeout, an earthquake safety program designed to raise awareness about earthquake safety. “The main point is to not try to move but to immediately protect yourself as best as possible where you are,” Shakeout.org said. The drill will allow students and faculty to employ this safety tip and provide experience vital in case of an emergency. Shakeout.org defines the earthquake emergency procedure as follows: Drop to the ground, cover yourself under a desk or table, and Hold On until the shaking stops. “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” is the internationally recognized emergency plan touted by rescue teams to be the best option for survival in the event of an earthquake. Misinformation about earthquake survival techniques such as standing in a doorway or running outside have been circulating for years. The goal of Shakeout. org is to put a stop to these myths and inform the public of the correct procedure. The importance if this precautionary measure cannot be stressed enough due to the fact that Chaffey sits directly on top of the Cucamonga Fault line, part of the Sierra Madre fault zone. The Southern California Earthquake Data Center’s website states that in the event of a major earthquake, the magnitude along the Cucamonga Fault would be in the range of 6.0-7.0, hinting that an earthquake in the area would be equal in force to the Northridge Earthquake of 1993 that killed 57 and caused an estimated $40 billion in property damage. Rancho Cucamonga has had 90 small earthquakes in the past year, indicating an active seismic fault that students will eventually need to be well prepared for. Almost 200 California colleges and universities with more than 1.3 million students are scheduled to participate in what will prove to be the Shakeout’s biggest year in history.

Festival brings together diversity in ages & art

thebreezeonline.com | October 15, 2012

DIEGO CERVANTES

The Young at heART Festival brought music, art, food and a surprisingly diverse audience all together on Oct. 6. The Wignall Museum and the surrounding grounds attracted a crowd of young and old faces. The first performance of the afternoon featured the Rancho Cucamonga Ukulele Strummers, who paid homage to their Hawaiian instruments with attire that resonated with their strumming. The group meets every Monday afternoon at the Rancho Cucamonga senior center and features classes for beginners as well as intermediate players. “For some of the students this is an entirely new experience with some who have never even picked up and instrument or performed in their lives,” Ida Earley, Strummer instructor, said. The highly enjoyable performance brought along a feeling of well being as students and residents watched the performance. The venue also featured various arts and craft vendors that included paintings, ceramics and even hula hoops. A notable vendor was Sunny Seki, a children's book author and illustrator. Born and raised in Japan until age 24, Seki brought a style that is true to the Japanese heritage and culture. His books are based on Japanese history and contain vital lessons for children (and adults). The stories revolve around believing in one's self and never giving up (Yuko-Chan and the Daruma Doll). The book’s detailed illustrations bring the story to life. To end the day's festivities, the Inland Empire Harmony Carousel was the closing performance. Members brought an authentic barber shop chorus to the festival. Opening with the national anthem, the group lived up to its name and delivered harmony to the audience. No amps, no autotune, no modulated bass, just pure vocals and nostalgia. Young at heART not only showed that aging isn't as scary as we are made to believe but also that the different age groups in society can, in fact, come together and have a good time. The festival brought together young and older groups of people who were there for the same purpose — to enjoy the arts.

Student Choreography takes the spotlight

CARLY OWENS

Dancers who are used to taking directions from a choreographer are getting a chance to share their own vision on stage. The 2012 Student Choreography Showcase gives students an opportunity to take the role of choreographer and put together a piece of their own. “[The showcase] gives students the opportunity to work on an idea from conception to performance,” Michele Jenkins, Professor of Dance and Artistic Director of the Showcase and Dance Program, said. The intent of the program is “to take the seed of idea, work with the theme, experience the whole choreographic process, and unifying of theatrical elements; props and costumes,” she said. It was the room itself that inspired the showcase, as Jenkins knew she finally had a place that she could hold an in-studio showcase.

The north wall of the dance room opens up so that the audience looks inside from the outside patio of the building. This is the third Student Choreography Showcase, and for many choreographers, this is their second time choreographing. “This is my second showcase, and my choreography is a lot more difficult,” Autumn Crayon, CIS major, said. “This year I better understand the dancers I’m working with, the way movement looks on them, as well as their different skill levels.” There are many different styles featured, including modern, tap and hip hop. “Some choreographers are doing different styles of dance, out of their comfort son,” Jenkins said. “There is more risk taking with their concepts,” With eight different pieces, there will be much diversity in the showcase.“Come to enjoy the art of dance,” Crayon said.

The Breeze staff brings home the awards

Other than the usual production day there is one thing that The Breeze staff looks forward to more than any other: JACC. The Journalism Association of Community Colleges has two conferences a year in which members of the staff participate. On Oct. 5-6, Breeze staff writers, photographers and editors took their annual trip to Cal State Fullerton for the JACC Southern California Conference. Fourteen students attended seminars and competed in six writing, three photography, news judgment/page layout, copyediting, editorial cartooning and twitter contests. With on-the-spot competitions students are able to put their writing and photographing skills to the test. For some staff members it was their first time competing and the experience can be overwhelming. First semester staff writer Genesis Zamora was awed by her experience. “I became more interested in writing and in journalism in general after I attended a writing in Rock and Roll workshop,” Zamora said. “It was fun, and it was cool to see different schools coming together.” On-the-spot competitions require students to work fast and efficiently as they are required to adhere to strict deadlines to file their assignments . For one first time staff writer and photographer, JACC was not only a learning experience but also a winning one. “Going to JACC for the first time and winning was a really surreal feeling,”

Valeen Gonzales said. “I was nervous and I really didn’t expect to win anything at all.” Big win she did, taking home two third place plaques, one for “Bring-in Advertising” and one for “On-the-Spot Copyediting.” “It was a big confidence booster for me because I joined The Breeze thinking it would be a new experience, not expecting to find a love for journalism,” she said. Students also attended several seminars on news, sports, opinion, broadcast and feature writing, layout and design, ethics, investigative journalism and more, taught by industry professionals from the L.A. Times, Orange County Register and other professional publications and broadcasting companies. The Breeze staff uses these seminars as a way to refine their skills and come up with other ways to draw a larger audience to the paper. On the last day of the competitions, JACC holds an award ceremony. This semester, Chaffey went home with nine awards. Photo Editor Carly Owens took home the gold when competing in the “On-the -Spot Feature Photo” competition. “I still can’t believe it myself, it’s pretty amazing,” she said. “I’m awestruck and so thankful it my hard work from that weekend paid off.” But besides the awards, JACC conferences are a way for staff to come together as a team and hone their journalistic skills. In all regards, the weekend at Cal State Fullerton was an overall success for members of The Breeze staff.

Other notables: Many of the staff enjoyed participating in the new Twitter contest. Richard Scott qualified for the second round in the News Judgment/Layout contest but a prior commitment forced him to leave event before the finals. (The staff considers that a win, because no one from Chaffey has never even qualified in the this event before!)

Don’t be in denial about West Nile Virus

PRISCILLA PORRAS

As the summer heat winds down, West Nile Virus continues to spread and endanger people’s lives. An infected mosquito’s bite doesn’t look any different than a non-infected mosquito. It will take 3 to 14 days, according to Center for the Disease Control, until symptoms develop. So far there have only been nine reported cases in San Bernardino County. The best way to avoid a life threatening bite and hospital visit while on campus or at home is quite simple. Standing water is the breeding ground for mosquitoes. While there are many areas of campus with standing water, one of the largest areas is the pond near the Health Sciences building. This area could be the perfect home for the virus. Luckily, the fish that reside there feed off mosquitoes and their eggs. “The chances of getting bit are higher from dusk to dawn,” Director of Student Health Services Kay Peek said. “So make sure to wear long sleeves and pants, and apply repellent with DEET or an FDA approved pesticide. Follow the label for proper instructions too.”

AMANDA FERNANDEZ

DOMINIQUE GARCIA

Standing water outside of the Health Services building could become a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Taking simple and safe precautionary steps at home and could prevent a bite and in the end save many lives. At home, if students have any pets, they should make sure to always check their dishes and give them fresh water. In their neighborhoods, if there is an abandoned house with a pool, they should local officials to clean it out at 1-877-968-2473 Avoid any dead birds or squirrels on

campus. Report sightings to the Maintenance Office at 909-652-6723. Gloves and trash bags are used to depose of the animal to avoid the virus through touch. If students develop flu-like symptoms after being bit by a mosquito, they should get checked for free at Student Health Services on the second floor of the MACC Building.

Breeze Reviews: Get thrown for an awesome Loop HANAJUN CHUNG

In science-fiction, characters strive at second chances through time travel, attempting to “fix” the present through altering the past. Many stories employ it in various ways for many different reasons, but the whole notion of time travel can become a rather tricky narrative device, mainly being a logistical nightmare if one were to consider the physics regarding timelines and causalities. Looper uses time travel in multiple ways, but its aim is not toward something trivial or selfish such as wealth or prosperity. Like the best sci-fi, Looper uses imagined technology to tell a compelling story about character that’s grounded in life and personality. Set in 2044, the details in the props and sets will treat audiences to the wonders of tomorrow, while not shying from the poverty and crime relatable in today’s society. When our hero – simply named Joe – talks to his older-self during a pivotal scene, we learn that all the seeds planted for the future mean nothing if the people planting them don’t understand the ramifications caused by morals and character. This is one of many thought-provoking scenes and ideas that subvert our expectations on the film’s science-fiction trappings, while captivating the audience in the character’s struggle and journey onscreen. I’m very happy to say that Looper is a smaller, fantastic piece of modern sci-fi that leaves a large emotional impact on the audience. If you’ve seen the ad campaign around,

then you know this as the film in which actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt had been transformed via hours of make-up to play the younger version of Bruce Willis. Gordon-Levitt plays Joe in the film’s present, in which he is a looper: an assassin/cleaner for a crime syndicate that receives instructions to kill and destroy the mark sent back from the future to avoid any evidence or traces of existence. Usually it’s easy money to off complete strangers from the future, but it’s when Joe fumbles while encountering his older-self as the mark that the film’s plot gains momentum. Old Joe has a mission to change things, while young Joe’s life and job is in jeopardy for having old Joe escape. To explain more would be to ruin a very interesting set-up, while also revealing the fun twists of the rules and overall story. Let’s just say that while the settings might become smaller and quieter, the action and emotional impact only gets larger. We don’t get many films like Looper, and it’s a shame. The past two film’s I’ve reviewed (Dredd and Resident Evil: Retribution) fit into similar genres, but they aren’t anywhere near as engaging and original as Looper. Whether or not you really understand the nuts and bolts regarding time-travel is not the point of the film. This a character-driven narrative. Rather than selectively choosing genre fans to recommend Looper to (but if you are, it’s a must!), I highly recommend young adults and students see this film as it really questions how the personality of our current selves has as much to do with the

future as our current actions. It might not be a life-affirming journey for everyone, but many will be hard-pressed to deny the quality of the film. Marty McFly is still awesome after 20 years, but he would be too afraid make the same decisions as both Joes do in today’s cynical and globalized world. While it doesn’t have the flair and presentation of classics such as Back to the Future, Looper still exceeded my expectations, and provides the heart and courage to make the hard decisions worth making. The Good: Looper

The Bad: Maybe it was my projection in particular, but the moments that were visually dim and dark (i.e.: night scenes or unlit interiors) were at times too dark to comprehend even with key lights present. The Weird: I heard one or two people state the “uncanny valley” as the film was over and everyone exited. The make-up of young Joe I guess didn’t fully convince them. But guarantee I heard more murmurs of “good movie” from everyone else. Overall: A

Taken 2 disappoints, should be taken out for good HANAJUN CHUNG Actor Liam Neeson usually brings depth and gravitas to his roles, elevating what could be a cliché genre film into a memorable experience. Taken is an example of such case. It’s sequel – Taken 2 – unfortunately, is not. Neeson’s performance in the first film fuels the audience in joining his character Bryan Mills in performing illegal acts in France, hoping to rescue his daughter from European sex-traffickers. Taken conjures up images of Neeson’s haunting monologue or his fast and deadly strikes. Taken 2 doesn’t fix what wasn’t broken. Instead, it over indulges the good and bad elements of the first film their attempt at creating a believable story in the sequel. One can assume that someone gets abducted in this film, leading Neeson’s character to use his special set of skills to retrieve them. In this film, his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) gets taken during a surprise visit to Bryan Mills at Istanbul with their daughter Kim (Maggie Grace), the abductee from the first film. The reason behind the Mills family abduction hasn’t been seen in mainstream cinema since Die Hard: With a Vengeance. While Die Hard: With a Vengeance isn’t considered the best of the franchise, that film is notable for doing something new with the story by putting the protagonists in a game-like situation. In this film, the family of the victims from the first film decide to take vengeance against Mills. As soon the Mills become entangled with the criminals in Istanbul, anyone who’s seen Taken knows exactly what to expect. Neck-chops? Check. Scowling? Certain

EUROPACORP DISTRIBUTION

Liam Neeson is back with all his skills in Taken 2. Unfortunately, the movies lacks the memorable experience that to first Taken had.

set of skills? Hell yes. The sequel has all that in spades, only it just takes too long before anything interesting happens. Remember the bits in the first film before the abduction or speech? Well, Taken 2 has a similar beginning, but only longer, including the villain’s point-of-view during the set-up. When the action arrives, Taken 2 is another victim of overuse edits, cutting before the shot can fully tell the audience what actually happened. People will die in Brian Mills’ hand, it’s just that shots cut before we know how.

Director Olivier Megaton previously brought the action heavy Columbiana and Transporter 3 to the mainstream, and his music-video style of filming and edits are present in this film. It looks cool, but it’s ultimately incomprehensible in telling a story. Yet, Taken 2 does have a few cool moments, all taking place when Neeson does what Neeson does best. But as of now – much like Neeson himself – Bryan Mills and the Taken series should take a long vacation from making another installment. And if we’re lucky, it’ll get abducted

and gone for good.

The Good: Liam Neeson and his skills. The Bad: The premise and motivation are highly illogical. The Weird: Maggie Grace — the actress portraying Kim — is supposed to be 18-years old in this film, 17 in the previous one. Umm, she’s 29 in life, and despite the movie make-up, she still looks 29. Overall: C-

Painting the campus pink with Panther Pride

GARY BYRD

Pink Panthers displays support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month during Chaffey vs Rio Hondo game on Oct 10, 2012.

SEVANNY CAMPOS Chaffey College is going pink. At least for the the month of October. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month through the nation. Chaffey College is doing its part by supporting breast cancer awareness throughout the the campus. For the first time Panther Athletics is dedicating the entire month to supporting the cause. An idea first started by the volleyball team last October, the fall athletic teams will wear pink equipment for the month. “This is so awesome,” soccer player Latrice Turner said. “It shows that we really care about people that have cancer and it’s awesome that even the guys are involved. I love it” The athletic department is also hosting five Cancer Awareness games where they will be giving out pink “Panther Pride” wristbands. The bookstore will be present at all five games selling breast cancer merchandise

and pink ribbons. Ten percent of the proceed will go to fund breast cancer research. The remaining games include: • Oct. 20 — Football vs. Mt San Jacinto, 6 p.m. • Oct. 26 — Volleyball vs. Rio Hondo, 5:30 p.m, • Oct. 30 — Women’s Soccer vs. Desert, 1 p.m. • Oct. 30 — Men’s Soccer vs Desert, 3 p.m. The Pink Panther Pride initiative will feature the men’s water polo team, sporting pink speedos and caps while their female counterparts will be wearing pink swim caps. The women’s soccer team will sport a pink jersey, socks and shoelaces while the men will be wearing pink socks, shoelaces and wristbands. The volleyball team will be wearing socks, shoelaces and wristband and the football team will wear the same. “Pink Panther Pride has really brought he teams together,” equipment manag-

er Justin Caudill said. “I know the girls have come together to make hair ribbons and accessories for their games.” Along with Pink Panther Pride Chaffey College athletic department is also going to participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Oct. 21 at the Temecula Promenade. “I didn’t expect a college to be a part of breast cancer awareness,” football player Anthony Martinez said. “I’ve seen the NFL supporting breast cancer and big universities like USC. I didn’t expect Chaffey to be so supportive. It’s really cool and I’m glad we are doing this.”

The Panthers are pink for the month of October.

After five straight wins for the Chaffey men’s soccer team, the Panthers fell to the Taft College Cougars on Oct. 2 by a 2-0 score. “This was tough loss coming up from five wins,” goalie Erik Zamudio said. “We thought we were good enough to take anyone.” In the first half, Taft’s defense kept a strong hold on the Panthers and was able to block an attempt. Taft definitely showed the Panthers they needed to bring their best game. Early on the Cougars had two shot attempts but defender Larry Llamas blocked them both. After two more attempts for Taft the ball either moved too fast for their players or it was kicked past the goal. But after Zamudio blocked on the side, Taft was just too quick and took advantage of an open goal and put themselves on the board. Panthers tried to score twice but when Franciso Hernandez lost sight of the ball a Taft defender took full advantage and high kicked the ball straight past Zamudio for a 2-0 lead.

“This wasn’t an easy team,” Zamudio said. “They had great strikers and it slipped past the defense. The second goal was up in the corner and nothing could be done.” The second half was a new start for the Panthers as they fought to even the score. The Panthers made powerful kick but just missed the goal. Good thing Taft’s offense was too distracted by Panther’s defense. “First half was not so good for us but the second half picked up,” Zamudio said. “It’s better to lose now before playoffs and it keeps us in check. This can be fixed.” The defense came out with vengeance. Panther Chris Umana took on Cougar Edgar Contreras in a fight for the ball in one play and Brad Kellogg didn’t mind getting tangled with another Taft player. These two plays helped remind the visitors that Chaffey would fight until the end. Taft tried for one last goal but Zamudio didn’t let it happen, and the game ended with the 2-0 score. But on Oct. 5 the Panthers won against Desert College, 5-2, to make them undefeated in conference play. Their next home game is against Victor Valley on Oct. 16 at 4 p.m.

Lady Panthers claw their way to court victory

HERMAN DUGBARTEY

The Lady Panthers served their opponents defeat at their recent volleyball match. The Panthers (8-4) defeated the Mt. San Jacinto Eagles (1-10) on Wednesday evening, Oct. 10. Chaffey came out tough offensively during the first few minutes of play. Although their defense was not as strong, they were able to work as a unit nevertheless. “At the start of our game we had holes in our blocks,” mid position Ashanti Banks said. Banks played a major role in the outcome of the game for the Panthers. She scored 11 overall points throughout the periods and was a major factor on defense as well. Mt. San Jacinto led the game in the beginning of the first period. The Eagles out scored Chaffey 3-10 early, which caused Chaffey’s defense to adjust. Chaffey soon made a comeback to even the score. Samantha Marquez scored two of the points that led to the tie in the first period. The first quarter ended with the Lady Panthers on top 25-18. Second period started off like the first with Panthers trailing, 3-6 in the early minutes. Panther transitions off the net were not fast. But, Eagles defense could not hold up against the Panther offense. “Definitely, we were smart with our blocking and our hitting,” Banks said. Panthers were able to keep their guard up defensively during serves from the Eagles. Mid position Heather Griepsma made countless blocks through out the match. Griepsma also contributed by scoring as well. Just as in game one, 25-18 was the end result of the second period, in Chaffey’s favor.

JOE WORRELL

Sophomore Cynthia Mora and freshman Heather Griepsma put up the block for the point against Mt. San Antonio during Panther win on Oct. 10 in the Chaffey gym.

Starting in the third quarter the Panthers again struggled with their defense. Eagle’s Outside Hitter, Julianne Tuiolosega had two of their first five points in the beginning of the third quarter. But again Chaffey ended the quarter stronger than they started. Panthers tied up the match 12-12 with a few minutes left in the quarter. After the 10th point from the Panthers, their defense turned around. Opposite Hitter Malika Fofana made some noise with her two points and a block as well. Chaffey

ended the third quarter on top, 25-19. “Overall we played pretty good, made smart plays,” Banks said. Panthers played sturdy offense that led them to the win. Their defense was not the best, but they were still able to get the job done. Banks said the team has to get better with their passing. “It was really off tonight,” she said. The Panthers plan on making improvements in the areas they struggled with against Mt. San Jacinto. Hopefully they can claw themselves into another victory.

Lady Panthers dominate

Forward Marie DeChaine regains control of the ball and helps the Panthers in the Oct. 9 win against Taft. The final score was 4-0.

JONATHON NICKS “Lady Panthers have the greatest motivation and determination of the season,” coach Grace Cutrona said after the No. 7 ranked Panthers traveled to Desert Oct.5 and shut out the Roadrunners 11-0. It was a complete takeover by Chaffey women as they dominated throughout. Kelsea Varner led the team with three goals, followed by Latrice Turner, Claire DeChaine and Rosa Chavez with two goals each. “This game was just a warm up to get ready for Taft this week,” coach Cutrona said.

The Lady Panthers are on a roll defeating visiting Taft Cougars on Oct. 9, 4-0. The women played excellent as a team and came to the field to play with one thing on their minds — that was to win. Goals were scored by Deanna Briones, Cecilia Hernandez, Sarah Jimenez, and Kelsea Varner. Kiara Udman defended the goal with one save. The Panthers are playing like champions this year and hope to make it to conference finals as well. The team resumes conference play Oct.16 hosting Victor Valley College at 1 p.m.
