November 28, 2017

Dear Mr. [Luis Gael] Jimenez, I would like to thank you very much for the outstanding coverage you gave me in the Feature coverage of the "The Current" newspaper.  When we met for our interview it seemed like we were being rushed a bit to make the planned Agenda and I wasn't sure that you got anything...

Ingrid Radke-Azvedo was born in the heart of Germany in 1934. As a small girl, Radke-Azvedo enjoyed what most young children do: playing with dolls, spending time outside and creating rich fantasy worlds in her mind. What separates Radke-Azvedo from other girls her age was that she grew up in the shad...

March 14, 2016

Dear Editor, I hope I am not opening a closed wound, but I have been reading the editorials posted on the ARCurrent website, specifically the articles concerning the Student Trustee Weaver controversy. I have read about Laurie Jones. I have read about President David Hylton II. I'm hurt. I was a ...

Letter to the editor: Political cartoon parody is inaccurate

December 10, 2015

To the Editor: "Weaver, Jones, Hylton and Nicholson not only are incapable of differentiating between a fact and an incorrect belief — they have no real interest in doing so." I'd say that's a little presumptuous. Did you ask us whether we had an interest in doing so?  Oh, no, wait - I gu...

December 4, 2015

It is highly disappointing that after multiple members of the American River College student government claimed to not be certain of all of the facts of the Holocaust, they did not take  the opportunity to attend an ARC event that featured a speaker who is a Holocaust survivor. This shows that th...

To the Editor: Thanks for a great article covering his (Holocaust survivor Leon Malmed’s) talk. Almost like being there, but I wish I had been. Too soon we won't have any survivors left to come talk. I had requested it, so you'd think they'd let me know. Next time a crucial event like this comes u...

October 12, 2015

A previous version of this editorial falsely stated that only one member of the Associated Student Body Student Senate, CAEB President Justin Nicholson, was elected by the students. In fact, Sen. McKaela Broitman was also elected during last spring's election.  When only two members of the Asso...
