TOWER WATCH

In previous issues of the Laney Tower, our staff has photographed and documented the various maintenance and infrastructural issues that Laney College has faced. We did this in each issue, briefly but consistently, in a feature called “Tower Watch.” Last year, we decided to retire the feature, giving the space over to stories and photographs about other issues across the district and the Bay Area at large. However, the problems have become yet again so persistent that we feel it’s important to give them the large amount of coverage they deserve. After all, some of us never use Laney’s bathrooms […]

No toilet humor here The women’s bathroom in the cafeteria on the main floor seems to be in some disrepair. This toilet has sat covered, with no signage, for over a week. Hopefully the administration can flush out the culprit before maintenance opens it back up to public use. Is something broken or in need of attention on your campus? Contact us at laneytower(at)peralta.edu.

Tower Watch – E.T. can’t phone home

How many of Laney’s 23 blue emergency phones are operational? Tower research reveals that six are functioning properly; one functions though inaudible; 11 are labeled “out of service”; and five are out of service though not labeled so. How far have we come in 10 years? The Tower ran a page one story on Dec. 8, 2005, under the headline “Alarming situation at Peralta,” which confirmed that out of 47 blue emergency phones throughout the district, only 11 were operational. Let’s hope it doesn’t take a tragedy to bring corrective action. Something broken or in need of attention on your […]

Our timeless campus Hole in the wall in room E-207 shows where clock once presided, providing students something to stare at during lecture. Clocks are also missing in rooms E255, E255A, and E255B. The Tower will keep watch and report back when the clocks are restored. Is there something broken or that needs attention on your campus? Contact us at laneytower@peralta.com.
