Anna Robledo
September 26, 2007

James Mangold’s remake of the 1957 film “3:10 to Yuma” stays true to the 1950s Western genre. However, because of an overexposure of great digital effects and crazy action, a la “Transformers,” “Pirates of the Caribbean” and even the 1993 action packed, genius... Read more »

Tom Waits album is raining dogs, not cats

Chris Garza
September 26, 2007

A wish-wash of lost characters symbolize Tom Waits’ 1985 album “Rain Dogs.” The sound is of timeless character and would be hard to place in a specific genre, let alone a time period. A surreal mix of tales and instrumentation relay the mix of Rain Dog- like characters. Waits has described... Read more »

Ashlee Flores
September 26, 2007

The library computers at Bakersfield College should be used for school purposes only. End of discussion, no questions asked. I’ve come to this conclusion because the majority of the time I go to the computer commons needing to write a paper, it’s very difficult to find an available computer... Read more »

Nature’s not our enemy

Man versus nature. Considering that it is the year 2007, you would think that we would have resolved this pseudo-conflict by now, but we haven’t. Recently there was some commotion over cutting down the water supply to different agricultural businesses here in Kern County to help save a species... Read more »

Spanking teaches kids discipline

Crystal Roberts
September 26, 2007

In a world where children are running amuck and not grasping any moral values, spanking proves to be a positive part of raising a child. Spanking some children is a good thing. It is a way to teach discipline to a child, to get them to listen and to get their attention. Some children can be reprimanded... Read more »

Marijuana revenue would diminish with legalization

Letter to the editor
September 26, 2007

Editor: With regards to the piece by Bryan Lung on taxing legal marijuana: Though I agree with the position that it should be regulated rather than remain illegal, the tax revenue that would be generated would fall far shorter than his reportings would suggest. The fact is that marijuana’s current... Read more »
