More of John Williams' fascinating campaign documents


     Yesterday, we viewed some of OC Public Administrator/Guardian (and SOCCCD trustee) John Williams' 460 forms re his reelection bid (as Public Administrator). We found some curious names among his contributors, including "LFC Corporate Services," which appears to be board colleague Tom Fuentes' firm. LFC contributed $500 on March 29, 2010.
     Today, I looked at a subsequent 460, and it seems to indicate that, some time between May 23 and June 18, LFC returned the $500. (Click on the graphic above.) Williams gives the code "RFD," which means "returned contributions" (see the key on the form).
     Does this mean that LFC provided a loan? Does it mean something else? Please note that Williams' campaign involved some seriously big money (including a loan, from himself I believe, of $88,000). Why this curious pattern over a measly $500?

During that same period (and on the same day), Williams received $250 from "Mendoza Insurance Brokers Inc." and $100 from "Hans Vogel." Vogel was a key trustee back in the late sixties/early seventies when Williams was a student at "Saddleback Junior College." (As I recall, Vogel spoke German and distinguished himself during the war; afterward, he pursued a career in coaching. As trustee, he spearheaded the effort to build the Utt library as a windowless fortress against protesting students.) 
For Mendoza, Williams checks the box for "political party." Huh?


You know me: I'm not good with financial records. But this seems to indicate that, back in 2002 (when Williams first ran for this office), he lent himself $88,000, and, by this point (i.e., early 2010), the amount he owes himself had reached $125,000.
Gosh, I wonder how Bailiff Boy managed to scrape up $88,000--back when he was a house husband on disability?

This form, from the same period, indicates that Williams paid $500 for "Cops Voter Guide," $2,000 for "Continuing the Republican Revolution," and $500 for "Democratic Voter's Choice." He indicates in each case that he was paying for campaign literature. Guess so.

He paid $500 for campaign literature/mailings re "Citizens for Good Government." He paid nearly $24K (!) for campaign filing/ballot fees (to the OC Registrar of Voters). He paid $1,000 to pollster/consultant Adam Probolsky (who, you'll recall, aided Tom Fuentes in the "campaign" to have him selected as Frogue's replacement back in 2000.)

This one is from the latter half of 2009. It shows that, during that period, Williams paid ethically-challenged attorney PHIL GREER $10,000 for "legal defense." As you know, when Williams was compelled to defend his curious combined position before the OC Board of Supervisors, he didn't show up, but his lawyer, Phil Greer, did. (At about the same time, the district paid Greer $25,000 to serve as Mathur's representation as the latter negotiated his exit from the SOCCCD.) Gosh, imagine the odds!--Greer has represented 4 of the 5 Supes, too! Despite those two "scathing" Grand Jury reports that pointed to serious hinkyhood at his office, things went Williams' way that day. It was stunning.
But is it proper for Williams reelection campaign to pay for his legal representation in efforts to keep his job? What Greer did that day was not about Williams getting reelected. It was about advocating on behalf of Williams' keeping his goofy job.
Anybody know how this works?

Williams' political contributors are special

     Earlier today, I presented indications that a certain spendthriftian trustee is bound once again for Orlando, Florida, on the public's dime. This evoked another spasm of interest in John Williams' finances.
     A friend has directed me to a document that Williams, a SOCCCD trustee and current OC Public Administrator/Guardian, filed with the OC Registrar of Voters (see here) on May 27. It records campaign finance activity from March 18 to May 22, 2010.
     These pages, from form 460, reveal who contributes to this inept, corrupt, and arrogant official's political campaign. Included among contributors are his underling Raghu P. Mathur, recently deposed Chancellor of the South Orange County Community College District; underling Tod Burnett, President of Saddleback College; board colleague Dave Lang, his companion in the board minority group known as "[Tom] Fuentes' Flunkies"; and Williams' PAPG employee and OC DA girlfriend Peggi Buff. Gosh, even Tom Fuentes' employer seems to have given a check to the guy! (Click on the graphics to make them larger.)

Goldem Foundation? Media ervices? CA Votuide? Republ Voter Checklist? Team C? This is pretty garbled. 

Names: Estebban Cerutti, Thompson Corp., and Ian Williams. The first two seem to be vendors. Maybe that last one is a relative.
Williams' Orlando brother? But Williams gives the code PRO, which refers to professional services (legal, accounting).
$130,00 in debt? Gosh. Big Money. It's ugly, man.

Names: LFC Corporate Services, Tod Burnett, Sperrey MacNaughton, Charles Seven.
Hey, isn't Tom Fuentes, Williams' board colleague, the Senior Vice President of the LFC Group? Yep. 
A "Sperry MacNaughton" runs one of the firms that competed to win the contract to run the SOCCCD Chancellor search. Gosh.

Names: Roy Stephenson, Dave Lang, Dr. Raghu Mathur, Peggi Buff, William Hewitt. The latter individual is associated with the SOCCCD faculty union.

Orlando yet again!

     Item 5.14 of the agenda for Monday's meeting of the SOCCCD Board of Trustees is trustee requests for travel. Check it out:

No "emeritus" for Ayers

U. of Illinois Trustees Deny Emeritus Status to William Ayers (Chronicle of Higher Education)

In a rare move, the University of Illinois Board of Trustees voted on Thursday to deny emeritus status to William Ayers, the professor of education controversial for his radical past. According to news accounts, the trustees' decision followed an emotional statement by the board's chairman, Christopher Kennedy, who is a son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy said that as a matter of conscience, he could not endorse "conferring the honorific title of our university to a man whose body of work includes a book dedicated in part to the man who murdered my father." Mr. Ayers is a co-author of the 1974 book Prairie Fire, whose dedicatees include Sirhan Sirhan, the man who assassinated Robert Kennedy. A university spokesman, Thomas Hardy, said he could not remember another instance of a retired professor's being denied emeritus status. Mr. Ayers, who taught at the university's Chicago campus, announced his retirement last month.

We're a college, goddamit!

As everyone knows, OC Republicans are very forgiving.

1. A GROSE PARTY. Today, OC Reg columnist Frank Mickadeit has an update on that fool, former Los Alamitos Mayor Dean Grose, who, a while back, spammed his friends an arguably racist “White House watermelon patch” cartoon.
     People went apeshit. He resigned.
     Naturally, he’s a Tea Partier, and those Tea people really like ‘im, watermelon or not. And so now, a year and a half after the watermelon brouhaha, he’s decided to run for Los Al City Council.
     Well, that’s not special. What’s special, according to Mickadeit, is the GOP Central Committee’s decision to endorse this dolt.
     Inexplicably, the Central Committee's endorsements panel voted a few weeks ago to recommend [Grose] get the full party endorsement.
     This was the group that rejected incumbent Orange Mayor Carolyn Cavecche for endorsement in part because she once gave a donation to a (conservative) Democratic school trustee who was a friend. So: Send out a racist cartoon about a (Democratic) president of the United States, we forgive you within 18 months. Give a Democrat a political donation, and even four years isn't enough time to develop adequate contrition.
. . .
…"Forgive me for my prior incident and allow me to move forward," [Grose] implored a packed tent at the Irvine Hyatt.
. . .
     In the end, it was all but unknowable who voted how. Chairman Scott Baugh declared Grose had gotten enough ayes that a head count of the roughly 60 committee members wasn't necessary to ensure the required two-thirds majority.
     Racism and forgiveness issues aside, I don't know why someone didn't posit this simple premise: Maybe Grose is just too stupid to be entrusted with public office.
     I don’t understand Mickadeit’s question. Since when do these people care how stupid their candidates are?

2. I HAVE A DREAM. That brings me to the unseemly topic of John Williams, SOCCCD trustee and OC Public Administrator/Guardian. Amazingly, OC GOP Cronyville seems still to support Mr. Williams, despite his increasingly visible and lurid incompetence, dishonesty, and willingness to join in unsavory machinations with the likes of corrupt OC DA (and “friend o’ Fuentes”) Tony Rackaucas.
     Today, cops arrested eight of those notorious rat bastards of the benighted City of Bell (aka “Dumbbell”), and, as I smiled, I thought of Orlando Boy. Maybe someday Bailiff Boy will be perp-walked out of his office, into the sunlight, with rotten fruit flying at his fat and berugged melon. I live for such things. I do.

3. HIS NAME MEANS "GOD LOVE." Rebel Girl reminded me today that one of the key reporters in the Bell story (see) is none other than Jeff Gottlieb, a journalist who was all over our own SOCCCD/IVC scandals ten years ago. (See here and here.)

4. OUR PROUD COUNTY HISTORY. Speaking of rat bastards, did you see that marvelous retrospective in the OC Register today? (Notorious public officials in Orange County history.) All of your favorite Republicans (and a couple of clueless Dems) are represented, including:

Orange County Supervisor Robert Battin (D)
Orange County Supervisor Ralph Diedrich (D)
Orange County Supervisor Philip L. Anthony (R)
Orange County Supervisor Don Roth (R)
U.S. Rep. Richard T. Hanna, (D)
U.S. Rep. Andrew Hinshaw (R)
Budget director for Newport-Mesa Unified School District Stephen Aldrich Wagner
Brea Mayor Ron Isles (R)
Huntington Beach Mayor Pamela Houchen (R)
Orange County Treasurer Robert L. Citron (D)
Assistant Sheriff George Jaramillo
Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona (R)
Assemblyman Mike Duvall (R)

     I wrote a comment: “Why no mention of Chriss Street?” Nobody noticed. I almost asked about John Williams, but I figured that, to be among this company, the Brown Boy needs to be indicted or something first.

5. WAR IS A RACKET, SAID THE DECORATED MARINE. There’s a post on the Orange Juice Blog that I highly recommend:

“War is A Racket” by Marine Major General Smedley Butler Two Time Medal of Honor

Who would believe that this decorated Marine officer could give such a speech in 1935! Some excerpts:
     I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.
     There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” to point out enemies, its “muscle men” to destroy enemies, its “brain men” to plan war preparations, and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.
     It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.
     I wrote a lengthy comment, but, again, nobody noticed. I’m a philosopher, and we’re used to absurdity and meaninglessness. Really.
     I managed to remind people of VPI Dennis White’s infamous “ban” on war talk in the classroom. Newbies, that happened in early 2003. Really.
     That’s right. I’m reminding people of that dark episode. And I’ll do it again and again until certain administrators cease to be so fucking clueless.
     We’re a college, goddamit!

6. BUT WHAT IF IT'S TRUE? The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that the U of Florida “has fired a professor after finding he made inappropriate comments in the classroom and behaved inappropriately toward female students…. The professor, Timothy Taylor, who taught in the department of food and resource economics, reportedly offended students by telling a class on contemporary issues in agribusiness management that Latin American women dress more provocatively than U.S. women.”
     Maybe he was drooling and leering when he said it. Otherwise, I don’t get it.

Chapman U discrimination lawsuit

Employment Commission Sues Chapman U., Alleging Race Discrimination in Tenure Case (Chronicle of Higher Education)

     The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a discrimination lawsuit against Chapman University in the U.S. District Court in Orange County, Calif., on Monday, asserting that the private institution, in Orange, Calif., denied tenure to a black marketing professor and then fired her because of her race.
     The professor, Stephanie Dellande, was passed over even as less-qualified non-black employees were promoted in the same department, the complaint in the federal lawsuit alleges. At the time Ms. Dellande applied for tenure in 2006, she was the only black faculty member in a department of about 30 people, the complaint says.
     In denying Ms. Dellande's tenure application, Chapman cited poor teaching performance and service, and inadequate scholarly contributions, the complaint says. In the document, the employment commission cites commendations from her colleagues that conflict with that assessment.
     A spokeswoman for Chapman, Mary Platt, said the university had not yet seen the lawsuit and could not comment.

The cat is out of the bag: good-bye ATEP; hello musical chairs --Plus Tea Party Science!

     Well, the cat is out of the bag: everywhere on campus today I ran into people buzzing about the rumored decision to pull the plug on ATEP and, therefore, to run a vigorous round of musical chairs with various administrators.
     If the story is true, somebody ought to figure out just how much money this “fiscally conservative” board threw into the ATEP money pit. I know that, last Spring, the Saddleback College Academic Senate had written a report that sought to identify the figure, and the numbers they had were big.
     Meanwhile, the election races of three trustee seats—those of Nancy Padberg, Marcia Milchiker, and Don Wagner—are starting to heat up.
     As you know, Don isn’t running and the Area 2 seat is open. Faculty-friendly T.J. Prendergast, a high school coach, is running against Kevin Muldoon, the GOP-endorsed candidate.
     Muldoon’s ballot statement lists these endorsements: Don Wagner, Tom Fuentes, John Williams, Congressman John Campbell, Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, Assemblyman Jeff Miller, Assemblyman Van Tran, and Professor John Eastman.
     It also includes the assertion that Muldoon is an “educator,” something he was compelled to remove from his candidate’s statement with the OC Registrar of Voters (the blurb that all voters get). Turns out that Muldoon, a former assistant DA, has taught Sunday school.
     That doesn't count, Bible Boy.
     I noticed that Muldoon and Milchiker both got the Lincoln Club nod, which implies that they have signed the club’s “Government Union-Free Pledge”. (Owing to “the problem of public employee unions and their corrupting influence,” I, XXX, will not accept campaign contributions from public employee unions.”)
     Oddly, Lincoln does not endorse Nancy Padberg.
     Hey, wasn’t Nancy on the GOP central committee until recently?
     Nancy is running against a Mr. Jack Frost, a "retired electronics engineer," who has not provided a candidate’s statement, and so he’s toast.
     Meanwhile, Marcia is running against “health facilities evaluator” Wile E. Coyote--er, Jill E. Case--who also failed to pay for the all-important candidate’s statement. More toast.

     How about an "ATEP renaming contest"?
     Send us your suggestions.

The Morning Reading: "And I could tell/What form my dreaming was about to take"

Rebel Girl's son, high in a tree, picking this season's apples.

Below, Robert Frost and his apples.


After Apple Picking

My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree
Toward heaven still,
And there's a barrel that I didn't fill
Beside it, and there may be two or three
Apples I didn't pick upon some bough.
But I am done with apple-picking now.
Essence of winter sleep is on the night,
The scent of apples: I am drowsing off.
I cannot rub the strangeness from my sight
I got from looking through a pane of glass
I skimmed this morning from the drinking trough
And held against the world of hoary grass.
It melted, and I let it fall and break.
But I was well
Upon my way to sleep before it fell,
And I could tell
What form my dreaming was about to take.
Magnified apples appear and disappear,
Stem end and blossom end,
And every fleck of russet showing clear.
My instep arch not only keeps the ache,
It keeps the pressure of a ladder-round.
I feel the ladder sway as the boughs bend.
And I keep hearing from the cellar bin
The rumbling sound
Of load on load of apples coming in.
For I have had too much
Of apple-picking: I am overtired
Of the great harvest I myself desired.
There were ten thousand thousand fruit to touch,
Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall.
For all
That struck the earth,
No matter if not bruised or spiked with stubble,
Went surely to the cider-apple heap
As of no worth.
One can see what will trouble
This sleep of mine, whatever sleep it is.
Were he not gone,
The woodchuck could say whether it's like his
Long sleep, as I describe its coming on,
Or just some human sleep.

Garsh, I thought that issue was settled

     Occasionally, I Google “Raghu P. Mathur”—just to see if the squirrelly fellow is up to anything these days.
     This morning, I came across an ad for an old book: The Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, Volume 51 Issue 4 1977
     The anthology includes Educate Teenagers to Become People by one Raghu P. Mathur.
     Do you suppose that that’s OUR Raghu P. Mathur?
     Clever fellow.
     Tom Fuentes and his Festering Fools seek to bring Goo back, you know.

Fascist bastard?

U. S. Appeals Court Throws Out Suit Over Religious Speech (Chronicle of Higher Education)

     A federal appeals court on Friday threw out a case brought by a Los Angeles City College student whose Speech 101 professor shouted him down and called him a "fascist bastard" while he was giving a presentation about his Christian faith.
     The student, Jonathan Lopez, sued the Los Angeles Community College District last year. He said that the professor, John Matteson, retaliated and discriminated against him because of his religious beliefs. The lawsuit asked the court to strike down a district sexual-harassment code that forbade students and employees from creating a "hostile or offensive" educational environment. A federal district judge later issued an injunction preventing the college district from enforcing that code, saying it was overly broad and violated free-speech rights.
     But a panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit unanimously found that Mr. Lopez failed to show he was harmed by the sexual-harassment policy and that he lacked standing to bring the case. Despite "the disturbing facts of the case," Mr. Lopez did not show how his speech, or his intended speech in the future, would have violated the policy he challenged, the judges ruled.
     "No LACC official or student invoked or even mentioned the policy, nor did anyone suggest that Lopez's ... speech constituted sexual harassment," the ruling says….

For-Profit Higher Ed Rewards Those Who Oppose New Rules (Inside Higher Ed)

     Members of Congress who have signed letters opposing proposed tougher regulations for for-profit higher education have seen their contributions from the sector increase, according to an investigation by ProPublica. The nonprofit journalism organization found that members who signed letters opposing new rules have received $94,000 in 2010. For some of the lawmakers, this means much more money than they have received from the sector in the past. Rep. Donald Payne, a Democrat from New Jersey, received $6,000 in campaign contributions from for-profit higher ed from 2005 through 2009. In 2010, he received more than $20,000....

From the archives: wartime documents, etc.

I came upon this 1902 certificate concerning my father's father's father, Karl Bauer (1880-1959). It certifies Karl's "honorable discharge" from the Wehrmacht (army) after service from 1900 to 1902. Evidently, Karl was a cannoneer, though the army designated him a "Musketier." 

This certifies Karl's service during the latter days and aftermath of "the Great War," from 1918 to 1919. Bear in mind that he was 38 years old in 1918. I have another document that seems to indicate that he served earlier in the war as well. My grandfather, Otto, joined the Wehrmacht at age 36 (in 1943).

This is a certificate of inheritance issued to my mother's aunt (Martha) upon her husband's death, of TB, in 1941. The official seal sports the German eagle and swastika.

The man who raised my mother (Edith) from 1934 until his death in 1941, was her uncle, Otto Hänfler, who worked as a potter for the famous manufacturer of porcelain, Meissen. Here are two pages of a book he kept in which he recorded important facts about his family. The handwriting is impressive, eh?

In Niagara Falls (Canada), evidently, marriage certificates were issued along with these odd "negatives," which feel like wax paper.

Here's the same document--my parents' marriage certificate (1953)--reversed and inverted.

This, of course, is my certificate of citizenship, issued in 1965.

Hell: a worrisomely possible future

"I am THOMAS; hear me roar!"

Not “serious enough”

     Recently, we noted a KOCE news story about trustee and OC Public Administrator/Guardian John "Orlando" Williams, who has been accused of pursuing cases to gain revenue to compensate for a massive shortfall (caused in part by litigation over his aggressive money-grubbing actions).
      In an interview for that story, John doesn’t answer key questions and takes refuge in the old “I can’t talk about that” ploy.
     This morning, our old friend Pen Pal wrote me to say that OC Supervisor John Moorlach appeared on KOCE’s latest airing of “Inside OC with Rick Reiff.” (See here. For some reason, on my Mac, it takes several minutes for the video to load up. You might start at Rick Reiff.)
     Moorlach is asked to give his perspective on the Mike Spitzer firing, which came about after his alleged (by Williams) “inappropriate” inquiry into a case at Williams’ Public Administrator/Guardian office. It's the same case at the center of the revenue-enhancing charge against Williams.
     During the interview, Moorlach, like many observers, notes that Spitzer’s phone call would seem to be a weak reason to fire a guy:


     “Todd must’ve gotten a call that, ‘oh, my goodness, I’d better jump on this.’ 
     "I don’t know what was said between he and the personnel at the PAPG, but it doesn’t seem like it was serious enough to be the incident to justify a termination.”

     --I.e., things are not what they seem. They never are with this crowd (i.e., Rackaucas, Schroeder, Street, Carona, Williams, Fuentes, Mathur, et al.).
     How can anyone support these people? Why would anyone trust them?
     I keep hearing rumors that big changes are in store for Williams in the coming months. I’m betting that’s true.

Goals and Values and Twaddle

blather: long-winded talk with no real substance*
The whole concept of MSLOs [measurable student learning outcomes] as the latest fad in education is somewhat akin to the now discredited fad of the '90's, Total Quality Management, or TQM. Essentially, the ACCJC adopted MSLOs as the overarching basis for accrediting community colleges based on their faith in the theoretical treatises of a movement.... After repeated requests for research showing that such use of MSLOs is effective, none has been forthcoming from the ACCJC [accreditors]. Prior to large scale imposition of such a requirement at all institutions, research should be provided to establish that continuous monitoring of MSLOs has resulted in measurable improvements in student success at a given institution. No such research is forthcoming because there is none….
The Accountability Game…., Leon F. Marzillier (Academic Senate for California Community Colleges, October, 2002)
In the summer of ’13, I offered a critique of the awkward verbiage by which the district and colleges explain their values, goals, and objectives —aka SOCCCD'S G&V (goals and values) blather.
I wrote a post each for the district, Saddleback College, and Irvine Valley College efforts. (See the links below.)
This verbiage—stated in terms of “values,” “missions,” “goals,” “visions,” and whatnot—is often badly written. It is sometimes embarrassingly trite.
It occasionally communicates something worthwhile.
No doubt you are familiar with the usual objections to jargon. Higher education, too, has its jargon—an irony, given typical college-level instruction in writing, which urges jargon eschewery.
Sure enough, SOCCCD G&V blather is riddled with jargon and with terms misused and abused. For instance, in the case of the district’s dubious blather, the so-called “vision” is actually a purpose. Why didn't they just call it that?
As one slogs through this prattle, one finds that "visions" tend to be awfully similar to “missions,” with which they are distinguished. The latter in turn are awfully similar to “goals,” which must be distinguished from “objectives.” But aren't goals and objectives pretty much the same thing?
These perverse word games will surely perplex or annoy anyone armed with a command of the English language. In fact, readers will be perplexed to the degree that they are thus armed. Illiterates, of course, will be untroubled.
Here's a simple point: the district and colleges’ G&V blather tends to eschew good, plain English in favor of technical terms and trendy words and phrases (i.e., it tends to be bullshitty and vague). Thus, one encounters such trendy terminological turds as “dynamic,” “diversity,” “student success,” and “student-centered.” Even meretricious neologisms such as ISLOs and “persistence rates” pop up, unexplained, undefended.
Does anyone see a transparency problem with all of this? Shouldn't the public, or at least the well educated public, be able to comprehend statements of the colleges' goals and values?
In the case of the district, to its credit, all it really seems to want to say is that it wants to teach well and it wants students to succeed. Admirable!
So why all the ugly, common-sense defying, buzzword-encrusted claptrap?
