  1. Larry Devine you NEED to sit down somewhere. Don’t you have better things to do than to disrespect young 20-somethings who are trying their best to educate the Valley College population?

    You sound like some disgruntled and angry old fart? Be gone.

  2. The journalistic standards apparent in the writing in today’s Valley Star is appalling. This was once one of the premier college papers in the state and nation. What happened to the program that once boasted Ken Devol, Leo Garapedian, and Eddie Irwin as professors? Isn’t anyone there teaching fundamental news writing 101?

Your thoughts?
