When Charles Ornstein was a college student and student journalist at the University of Pennsylvania, he took note of something that gave him pause: The campus security guards were sleeping on the job late at night. So Ornstein and a photographer did an article for the student newspaper that documented the sleeping guards. That year, the security guards were fired as a result, he said. The following year, Ornstein witnessed the same thing and wrote about it a second time. The university got rid of the security firm.

College paper not all about 'glad' news The thorough, balanced and sensitively written account of suicide in the June 9 Glendale Community College El Vaquero student newspaper deserves accolades, not criticism ("Vanishing newspapers stir trouble on campus," June 21). Writer Pauline Guinan did an outstanding job, gathering and presenting information from classmates, counselors and nursing faculty regarding the deaths of two nursing students during the recent academic year. Avoiding sensationalism, she carefully placed student suicide in the context of the disturbing and growing problem that it is. There was a time when death by suicide was never mentioned in news accounts.

MOVIE IS CONFUSING FROM MINUTE ONE Michael Arvizu is a sound designer for Company of Angeles Theatre in Silver Lake and is associate and online editor for El Vaquero, Glendale Community College's student newspaper. It seems that the Internet can not only violate your privacy but it can also kill you. A visually intense film, there is something to be said about a Web site that can produce that much blood and gore, proving that there are indeed much better places to visit on the Web -- and much better movies to see as the summer wanes.

Alecia Foster GLENDALE -- Journalism is serious business for the staff of Crescenta Valley High School's student newspaper. Staff members even missed an awards ceremony because they were so busy. "We were all on deadline," journalism teacher Joyce Yamaguchi said. The staff of the Crescenta Valley Falcon earned an honorable mention in the overall excellence category in the Los Angeles Times Valley Edition's 2000 High School Journalism Awards.

GLENDALE ? It was either a violation of the First Amendment or an honest mistake, but about 1,000 copies of Glendale Community College's "El Vaquero" student newspaper containing an article about two student suicides were missing from their racks Tuesday morning. Faculty advisor Michael Moreau said Supt. John Davitt wanted to order campus police to confiscate all copies of the student newspaper on Monday because he was upset with the story about two nursing program students who allegedly committed suicide in separate incidents, and also about an accompanying cartoon.

Glendale Community College makes 85 look good. The campus will play host to more than 400 alums, employees and patrons for a birthday celebration in the form of a formal outdoor dinner on Saturday night. In preparation, Lisa Brooks, executive director of the Glendale College Foundation, and others dug through the college archives, unearthing newspaper clippings and photographs entertaining enough to swallow an afternoon. “I think what has been interesting also is hearing everybody's stories,” Brooks said.

With the new school year well under way, I need to wrap up some leftover issues from the last one. For example, in a March column, I lamented the loss of the Baccalaureate ceremony, a time-honored tradition for graduating seniors at Crescenta Valley High. Since the school opened in 1961, the Baccalaureate had been a student-planned, attendance-optional sacred ceremony held on a Sunday afternoon before graduation. Now, because a few godless Grinches wrongly played the ‘separation of church and state’ card, this treasured tradition is gone.

Angel Silva talks shop like the journalist he is. Sitting last month in the office of El Vaquero, the student newspaper at Glendale Community College, the 20-year-old described traveling to Sacramento to cover the March in March protests, staged by college students in opposition to cuts in education funding. “Being able to work on my toes and being able to write a story on site was pretty interesting, [especially] considering that they were arresting people,” Silva said. His foray into journalism started while he was at Francis Polytechnic High School in Sun Valley.
