The Silversword: Home > Letters to the Editor
I really did enjoy the Feb. 9 issue of The Silversword online newspaper. I especially enjoyed Arielle Salvador's article on the new players on the basketball team (“New Faces on the Court”). As a graduate of Chaminade I still check the goswords.com Website for news on how our teams our doing. It was nice to see this news on the team that the athletics Web site does not report on in depth.
It has been a month since this issue and I hope there is another issue coming out soon!
I love your comparison of the Waialae apartments to a prison (Op-Ed, “Southern Lights,” March 9). It is great to see that this paper continues to remain edgy, creative and entertaining.
I also want to thank Chad Blair for doing such a good job in helping us out with the newspaper when I was editor. I think he has an energy and passion for journalism that excites the rest of the staff and editors of the Silversword.
I look forward to future issues. I now realize how great it is that our newspaper is online. Even though I have graduated and am no longer on the island I can continue reading a paper that I am quite attached to.
Does anyone want to take a stab at writing an editorial on who should be the next president of Chaminade? Or better yet, who shouldn't.
Keep it up!

Ashlee Duenas and Russell Thoulag, thank you for writing up an article on our program (Chaminade Life, “Kids’ Pics Capturing Students Hearts,” Mar. 9). I would like to share my great appreciation for the students who participated in our COM 380 Photography and Education class this semester.
There are no words to express how grateful I am for their wonderful cooperation. We are very delighted to have the Chaminade students on board to help teach underprivileged children with us. The Chaminade students' positive influence on our talented youth will strengthen their growth for the years to come.
Even for me, it was such a motivating experience to work with such kind and generous young adults. Their constructive insights were very helpful to better our program. I am very happy to know that there are such talented young adults who care about our community and children who are less fortunate. I believe this experience gave them some insights into the issues of poverty in Hawaii.
I hope this small class planted a seed in their mind for further community involvement as responsible citizens in the future.
