I have recently been surveyed on whether security guards should have guns on campus at Pasadena City College. I believe we should have guns as weapons for the security guards because of things like what happened at Virginia Tech. Maybe if there were more security guards with weapons, they could have stopped the shooting, and not so many students would have been killed or injured. The only security guards who should have guns on campus, however, are the ones who have experience using some sort of weapons or guns.

This post has been corrected. See details below. The quick, sharp blasts of a pocket trumpet can be heard out in the courtyard. Inside a small Echo Park home recording studio, Asdrubal Sierra is adding his horn parts to a new song by Ozomatli. It's a warm, danceable track destined to be offered for use at the next World Cup soccer tournament, and a fitting sound for a vibrantly multicultural event. Just outside sit two of Sierra's bandmates, singer-guitarist Raul Pacheco and percussionist-singer Jiro Yamaguchi, relaxing in the shade to talk about a new season of activity for the distinctive Los Angeles band.

A ni Vertanous and Sabina Agazarian said they've been friends since middle school, but walking up the hill to the Starlight Bowl for their Burbank High School commencement Friday, they started yelling. They weren't going to be sitting next to one another for the ceremony, but they said that didn't take away from their sense of accomplishment, relief and joy. "It feels amazing," Vertanous said. "It's the end, and I accomplished everything." The two will be going to Pasadena City College next year, representing two stories among the almost 670 graduating seniors who became alumni Friday night.

PASADENA — When the Burroughs High football team began Pacific League play with two straight losses, the team wasn’t about to panic. Because the Indians played well in those two defeats — losing by a total of only five points — they believed they could win their final five league games and set themselves up for a trip to the postseason. Burroughs showed it is well on its way to achieving that goal, dominating Pasadena Friday night in a 20-2 league contest at Pasadena City College.
