Con: California Marijuana Legalization

Recreational marijuana should not be legalized under Proposition 64 this November in California primarily because of the health consequences and economic ramifications. Legalization would perpetuate the notion that marijuana is completely harmless — but this is not true. Although marijuana has not caused any known deaths, it  can have long-term health ...

Whatever Floats Your Vote

On Nov. 8, Neela Aghajan (12) will step into a local office building, surrounded by people mostly older than her, who collectively exude an aura of experience. Some will appear bored and impatient, others fidgety and anticipatory. She will inch forward in line as the time goes by, increasingly restless as she gets closer to the booth where she will cast an official U.S. ballot for the first time in her l...

Sports Corner: October

The St. Louis Cardinals faced the Cincinnati Reds on Sept. 29 in a game they had to win for a shot at the remaining National League wild card spot. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, Cardinals’ Yadier Molina hit a walk off double winning the game 4-3. However, Molina’s hit should never have won the game because it was a ground rule double, which, if appropriately call...

Pandora’s Pizza

I’ve eaten pizza at least once a week for most of my life. Since I eat pizza so often, I’m always up for trying a new variety of it, so reviewing Pandora’s Pizza in Leucadia was the perfect opportunity. Arriving in the late afternoon at 2:30 p.m. was my best bet at beating the Saturday lunch crowd. There were two people in front of me, but most of the seats in the dining room and on t...

Pro: California Marijuana Legalization

In November 2010, Proposition 19, which called for the legalization of recreational marijuana for ages 21 or older, was presented to California voters for the first time. But, it failed to pass because 53.5 percent of voters decided that the consequences of legalized recreational marijuana would outweigh any possible positive outcomes. The issue will be once revisited again on this year’s ballot in...
