If you want to believe the journalism junkies, they've been changing more than just names around Medill.

Lavine grabbed headlines...

Letter to the Editor: “Non-student resident” is an inaccurate label

November 15, 2010


Filed under Opinion

Having settled in Evanston 45 years ago, I was dismayed to find myself referred to in yesterday's Daily as a "non-student resident." This may seem like a trivial semantic issue, but it does reinforce the erroneous notion that other longtime residents and myself are interlopers in a student neighborhood - ...

Ever since I stepped in a big pile of dog poop on my way to school one day and the odor took over our eighth-grade classroom, I've always had a precarious relationship with the less glamorous side of man's best friend.

Last Friday, I got a ticket from the Evanston parking patrol. Technically, it was my fault. I was parked on a street where street cleaning was scheduled from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays, and I'd forgotten to move my car in the morning.

Filed under Opinion

Last Saturday I was sitting in Burger King, happily devouring my fries when a friend mentioned in passing something that they had seen on CollegeACB.com. I paused for a moment.

Letter to the Editor: Calling all aspiring educators

October 29, 2010


Filed under Opinion

Claire Brown's recent Daily article (9/30/10), "In Focus: Why is everybody at Northwestern joining Teach for America?" was well-written and informative. However, I feel light needs to be brought to Northwestern's own Alternative Teacher Certification Program, NU-TEACH. NU-TEACH's director and Found...
