In case you missed it, there’s been some serious debating going on on our Web site over Prop. 8. No surprise, it’s a heated issue. Read Edward Fillinger’s commentary and the four letters to the editor we received (here, here, here, and here).

Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll. Nice turnout.

What didn’t fit in the police report

We apologize for not updating in such a long time, but we at The Poly Post have been busy working on our final issues of the year and planning our special summer orientation issue, which we’re calling STAMPEDE.

I got an e-mail today for an addition to the weekly police report that can be found on page 2 of the paper. Because our final issue of the year comes out tomorrow, I figured what better place to put this than here….

The student e-mailed me saying he saw Parking Services locked out of their car in Lot M. Here it is, in police report format*


JUNE 1, 1:18 PM

Two Parking Services officers locked out of car in Lot M. Using a Slim Jim to get in. Disposition: Advised/Assisted.

*Police reports are submitted to The Poly Post every week from the campus police. They are obligated to report every call they receive, and we highlight 12 that can fit into our box in print. We tend to choose the most interesting ones, because we know how much you guys like reading that stuff. Look for one about a naked guy in a community center this week!

Voter turnout on par to break records

Day one into the three-day ASI Elections, and it seems as though votes are on par to exceed campus records.

Perhaps the excessive staking and flyering will pay off – a likely possibility for Team B.E.S.T., who’s visibility has far exceeded The U Element or Team YSS. Or perhaps it was the free Denny’s coupons given out to voters – which are now reported to be in enough supply to last most of the election period.

ASI Elections Chair Ahmad Faqih said that 1,625 voted before 6 p.m. today. That’s in comparison to 1,741 votes recorded for the 2008 ASI Elections and 3,696 recorded for the Rec Center 2012 campaign.

UPDATE: ASI presidential candidate Blake Adham, running on  Team YSS, didn’t make it Tuesday’s U-hour open forum and YSS presence has been nary all week. Here’s his status from Facebook:

Blake Adham has been in the hospital for the past two days.Thanks to everyone who has voted for me. Keep it college. Blake

Best of luck to all the candidates, and make sure your voice is heard.

Below is what users have voted on so far, starting last week.

Everything you need to know about swine flu

There are no reported outbreaks at Cal Poly Pomona, and the pigs on campus are healthy.

The swine unit has no risk of the disease because the herd is bred through artificial insemination. This season’s flu vaccination is not expected to protect against swine flu, but Student Health Services does have a limited number of annual flu vaccine shots available.
