Good-looking or not, criminals are still criminals

Move over, Wyatt Earp. A new wave of criminals has hit the national scene, and these felons aren’t scared to show off their looks. In the last few months, we have seen a new trend of hot criminals: people with model looks who are committing crimes that make even a white-collar criminal blush. Their mugshots are being spread all across social media platforms, and are gathering attention for all the wrong reasons. One of the so-called...

Water restrictions are a good idea to help conserve resources

The numbers are scary. This is California’s third driest year in 119 years on record. Students need to get serious about saving water. The California Department of Water Resources reported that the state’s major reservoirs collectively holds only 60 percent of average storage for the date, or about 41 percent of capacity. It is not much more water than in 1977, California’s driest calendar year on record, where the state had 16...
