An academic mix
By Jessica Cassyle Carr [ Sat Sep 3 2011 10:00 AM ]
Autumn is nigh, and with the turning season come books and classrooms and new ideas and pocket protectors. Much music on the topic of school has to do with the rebellion against it, lust, alienation or nostalgia. Linked below is a seasonal mix—most of the rock and roll or punk persuasion (sorry, no Van Halen)—to put you in the mood for education, be your participation willing or begrudging. Listen/watch here.

Student writes about LGBT rights in Clovis
By Marisa Demarco [ Tue May 10 2011 2:39 PM ]
Steven De Los Santos turned in an application for the club in late February, according to Walker’s story. The Alliance was approved, but then Principal Wayne Marshall changed his mind and decided to send the request along to the superintendent.
The Clovis School Board voted to ban all non-curricular clubs from meeting on campus during school hours or using school resources to spread the word about meetings.
The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico got involved and demanded the Gay-Straight Alliance be approved—even as a non-curricular club. Albuquerque Pride, the state’s largest LGBT organization, drove down to Clovis to hold a demonstration. Last week, the Alliance was given the green light.
Student editor Walker’s article also addresses other LGBT concerns in Clovis.
