Southgate Swim Club Remodel: Just in time for summer

With summer just around the corner the increase of weather is starting to built up more and with these last week’s temperature in the Bay Area raising in the upper 80’s, we all know that one of the best things to do when weather is hot is going to the beach or our local swimming pool.  The South Gate Swim Club of Hayward Calif. is trying to meet their deadline of reconstruction of the pool just in time for the summer. The South Gate Swim Club is in a must need for repair for it has been in Hayward for the past 48 years.

South Gate Swim Club closed their doors to their club members due to fact that the pool was leaking from the bottom which the pool would leak. This is one of the main reasons why the pool closed in the need of renovating the pool. “The construction should end by May” said Katy Dinatale, the swim coach of the South Gate Swim Club, which should be just in time for this summer which in a promise to be very hot. Dinatale also added the pool would “leak 2 feet everyday” and that they would have to “fill the pool all the time” when they would have to use it. So this renovation of the pool should help them in conservation of water.

Katy Dinatale also brought to the awareness of how the club has responded to the cost of the repairs and stated that they have raised “extra assessment fees” from club members who have been very generous to their club in helping raise thousands of dollars with having over 150 members in the club. Also due to the news coverage from CBS 5 and the Daily Review it has helped raise more with the generous donations from people. According to the swim clubs website southgateswimclub.com the fundraising goal they are trying to meet for the repairs is $80,000, which might be a tough goal for the club but they have managed to raise $11,300 off of the assessment fees and $12,560 has come from the generous donations. So as of last Saturday they have raised a total of $23,860 which is huge for cost of the pool but still want to reach that goal. If you have any questions over donating you can contact Tracy Diaz at tracy@southgateswimclub.org. And if you are interested in joining the club it is a onetime fee of $250.

“American Reunion” saves best slice for last

The highly funny “American Pie” series is back with another greatly anticipated film, “American Reunion” which screened Thursday night in San Jose, Calif.

 

The last movie to come out in the series was “American Wedding” which came out in theatres in 2003. It has been over a decade since the last movie of the series, so the title of the movie was real fitting, due to all them finally coming back to the big screen after a big hiatus, and what a big return it was.

 

The movie returns with the entire original cast from the first movie. Jason Biggs returns and plays his unforgettable role as Jim Levinstein, in which he is now a father and is married to his high school sweetheart Michelle Flaherty, who is played by Alyson Hannigan.

 

The movie is based on the idea that their old high school is going to hold their reunion for the class of 99’. So they all come back to their hometown of East Grade Falls in the hope of gaining the nostalgic feeling of high school. As they return they soon start to realize that they are old and that they aren’t the same people they once were.

 

Steve Stiffler, played by the very funny Seann William Scott is the one out of the whole group who is still the same arrogant, immature guy. Without his arrogant character, though, this movie would have been as funny.

 

Overall the movie is hilarious, it kept the whole crowd crying with laughter with the many daring jokes especially with the unforgettable opening scene with Jim that I assure many won’t forget.

 

The high school reunion was about getting even, finally setting things straight with old friends and ending second thoughts. According to Tyler Christian, a reviewer for the website Rotten Tomatoes, stated  that the film is a “Raunch-filled romp that succeeds in bringing back the nostalgic memories mostly from the first film.”

 

It’s very long, but it’s not a bad thing since the movie keeps you entertained and all you can really think about is what is going to happen next. This movie is a high recommendation to anyone who likes raunchy comedy and of course who is a fan of the “American Pie” series.

 

This movie is only for the mature audience due to some of the jokes being a little too graphic, but it was great to see that the best piece of this series was saved till last. “American Reunion” is set to be released in theaters on April 6.

Japanese internment camp survivor: Mas Hatano

History was taught at Chabot College last Tuesday in building 400. Mr. Mas Hatano gave a presentation on Japanese internment camps in San Francisco during World War II (WWII).

Hatano spoke about his experience during the bombing of Pearl Harbor and how California reacted towards the Japanese community in California.

On Feb. 19, 1942, Executive Order 9066 was passed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, forcing residents of Japanese descent into Internment camps. The government felt that they posed a threat to California after the attacks on Pearl Harbor.

Over a 1,000 workers were fired from their jobs because they were Japanese. Flyers were posted all over the cities, instructing Japanese to leave.

Hatano showed a picture of the Army pointing guns at a Japanese group that was rounded up and expressed, “They were more worried about people who were in the land instead of protecting it.”

The internment camps went to the extremes. There were a total of 10 camps with over 10,000 people in each. Even if you were 1/16 Japanese, you could still be put in the camp. Everyone was given numbers and tags, A line was drawn from Oregon all the way down to California; if you were on the right side – you could stay, but if you were on the left you were ordered to leave. Executive Order 9066 came to an end in 1945 because the government found no reason to keep them there.

Anna England, a student at Chabot, asked Hatano if anyone ever tried to run away. Hatano answered “No one ever tried to escape. [When] eight men were shot and killed,” Hatano also expressed, “The people in the camp were charged for the bullet the soldier used.”

Hatano spent three years in an encampment in Tule Lake and was 13 at the time. The Japanese created their own community in the encampments, where they were void of discrimination. Schools were created but local teachers did not want to teach them, “They didn’t want to teach the enemy.” Hatano said.

“Crossing 32nd Street” hosts a very special show

[media-credit name="Sophia Schmagold/Staff Photo" align="aligncenter" width="500"]Crossing 32nd Street[/media-credit]

Crossing 32nd Street takes the stage.


On Thursday night, January 26, 2012, the ensemble “Crossing 32nd Street” played a live show to a packed house at the Buffington Performing Arts Center at Chabot. The ensemble is an experimental music group from Arizona, once named Phoenix’s “best new classical music ensemble” by The Arizona Republic, the state’s largest newspaper. It was a very special show for Erick Schultz, who left the group over two and a half years ago to teach at Chabot College, while the rest of the group teaches at Paradise Community College in Arizona.

Chris Scinto, Erick Schultz, Doug Nottingham, Brett Reed and Rob Esler are regular members of “Crossing 32nd Street”. Very special guest Dr. Terry Longshore came to fill in last minute all the way from Oregon. This was the first time the ensemble ever played at Chabot College.

The band is mostly based on exploring the concept of sound and the limits it can reach, if it has any. Schultz told The Spectator that this ensemble is very interested in “exploring the concept of sound” which is very true because the concert brought us many different sounds, sounds that are very unique and as Schultz puts it, “daring”.

The group uses not only traditional instruments like the flute and piano, but incorporates the percussion of claves, bongo drums and mixed multimedia played on a laptop. The main influence of their experimental sound came from when they all studied at Arizona State University, where the ensemble was taught by Glenn Hackbarth.

“Crossing 32nd Street” is very transitional in the sound they create. They would play a certain piece for at least 10 minutes and would improvise a lot, which Schultz told us is the group’s main core. Due to this, it was easy to get lost in the sound being made and at times it felt as if one sound would transition into another.

They mixed sounds from 2 people playing percussion at different tempos, to a call and response from a piano with a turntable, and even a piece for one with amplified maracas. The show got very emotional when the ensemble performed a piece called “Fireflies,” a song with multimedia components composed by Shultz himself, for which he gave an introduction.

The song is about when he would go visit Springfield, Missouri and see all the fireflies mating in the field. He talked about the different patterns of lights males would use to attract females and the false signals some females would use to tease them. The song was played while a recorded video played in the background of those fireflies in Missouri. Though it was dark and generally hard to see many fireflies in the video, it was very touching piece that kept the attention of everyone. Looking around, the audience seemed to escape reality and some even cried.

“Crossing 32nd Street” is a very unpredictable group that you won’t know what you might hear until you see them. Their music can’t be found on the internet, which means the best way to hear their music is to actually attend one of their concerts.
