Letter to the Editor: ARC President Thomas Greene responds to Current editorial

October 24, 2019

On Wednesday, the AR Current posted an editorial criticizing the college’s response to the recent incident involving a hurtful flyer posted in the HUB. The concerns expressed in the editorial, and the criticisms of my and our handling of this situation, were valid. I sincerely apologize that this flye...

Letter to the Editor: Editorial is an inaccurate portrayal of ASB President Hylton

Letter to the Editor: Editorial is an inaccurate portrayal of ASB President Hylton

April 18, 2016

Dear Editor: I realize that reporters probably do not write the headlines for their articles. In the April 13 edition of the Current (Vol. 6, Ed. 11), the lead headline of "Reefer, booze and GA" on Robert Hansen's article is correct, because that did happen, albeit in Fall of 2014. (This is news?) The...

Letter to the editor: Anti-abortion propaganda

Letter to the editor: Anti-abortion propaganda

April 1, 2016

I am appalled by your recent article "Abortion foes come to ARC" (3/30). Supposedly it was about a group that came here to "discuss its feelings" by "engaging in conversation." But there's no conversation here. If "Project Truth" wants to come to a campus where they have no business besides spreading...

March 16, 2016

Update, March 16, 2016 at 11 a.m.:  A previous version of the headline incorrectly spelled the word Jehovah's as Jehova's. It has been updated to correct the change. Dear Editor: Our campus has a history of religious denominations coming to our college to share their faith with the hope of ...

Letter to the editor: Mental health legislature will increase availability of services on campus

February 19, 2016

Dear Editor, I am writing in response to your recent article about potential mental health legislation. The article discussed proposed legislation that would increase the amount of funding for mental health services in higher education settings.

Letter to the editor: ARC administration correctly notified students about tuberculosis case

Letter to the editor: ARC administration correctly notified students about tuberculosis case

December 22, 2015

To the Editor: Your editorial, “The Silent Treatment,” indicated that tuberculosis can be spread by “just speaking” to a person with TB. We simply would like to take this opportunity to ensure the accuracy of information about TB. Exposure to a person with active disease must be close ...

Letter to the editor: Political cartoon parody is inaccurate

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...

Letter to the editor: Holocaust event not advertised

Letter to the editor: Holocaust event not advertised

November 16, 2015

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...

Letter to the editor: Electronic cigarettes are dangerous to health

Letter to the editor: Electronic cigarettes are dangerous to health

November 3, 2015

To the Editor: A recent opinion article in the Current contained misleading claims about e-cigarettes. It offered a flawed argument for not including them in the new tobacco-free campus policy that protects all students and staff starting in January. A growing number of studies raise concern about ...

Letter to the editor: Threat suspect convicted by the press

October 19, 2015

I think it might be nice if Kristofer Clark's personal life and how its been turned upside down should be thought about also. He's been accused very publicly and convicted by the tone that the press - especially The Current and statements made by the college. The entire incident could have been handle...
