Our sidebar stories are simply the bomb
For instance, have you noticed our seriously cool sidebar stories?
Right now, over on the LEFT, we’ve got:
2001: the Faculty Association's Not-so-sweet Charity
That one’s about the union Old Guard’s involvement in an orphanage that, at least back then, was, um, way scandal-ridden.
MORE old Saddlebackian stories
The latter includes:
The "Sea Mountain Valley Community College District"? - That’s about our district’s name. ThenNext, there’s:
2. We don't need no stinkin' “Gauchos” - about how Saddleback was originally saddled (hehe) with that awful mascot. Then there’s
3. Dress Codes, war protesters, phantom Hippies - self-explanatory, dude. Finally:
4. A mighty fortress is our Library - which concerns just how it came about that (until recently) the Saddleback College Library has no windows.
Early Saddleback College history: "faculty wives club" - which offers even more delightful stories about Saddleback College’s early days. Yes, there really was something called the "faculty wives club."
MEANWHILE, over on the right sidebar, we’ve got:
The Replacement Clock Tower Incident - which, um, is a fantasy, I guess. But it’s true, too.
Right-wingers founded SOCCCD - which is actually more about “founding trustee” Hans Vogel, a man very much of his time and place, and that's not good.
Finally, we’ve got
2003: IVC faculty ordered not to discuss the war - which explains how it is that, to this day (the policy was never rescinded), IVC has a policy according to which instructors (unless they get special permission, etc.) are forbidden to talk about the Iraq war in the classroom.
