Administration seeks to combat poaching of our service area by the likes of OCC, and to make our presence known, by assembling teams, on Oct. 1, that will descend upon 500 local "businesses" (that's the word [the VP of SS] used at the meeting I attended; no doubt the category is broader than that) with a tin of cookies and some pamphlets. Many of us cringed--once again--when we heard about the cookies. That's what we've come to expect from IVC administration: IVC=cookies. Maybe punch, too.Anonymous -- 9:38 AM, September 21, 2014

Roy, your response at 3:49 pm is probably why you were not selected to lead the outreach effort. If you truly care about our students (and I believe you do) then I think any campus outreach that can provide them support or opportunities should be embraced. Even if we don't agree with the methodology, the fact that efforts are being made by many people on campus to engage the local community should be embraced.Roy Bauer -- 5:41 PM, September 21, 2014

Wielding that finely-honed "sarcasm," are we? OK, I'll bite. Which "joke" did I fail to tolerate?Anonymous -- 1:56 PM, September 22, 2014
Re my use of the "F-bomb": I would have thought everyone would be impressed by my stunning reserve, given the obnoxious idiocy routinely exhibited by some critics of this blog.

First, I'm not sure any self-respecting college would want the crowd that such approaches would attract. Second, bedazzlement by shiny things and new shoes attracts both sexes, Captain Retro. Maybe you should consider a move to Costa Mesa, dude.

I think that various female denizens of the college are being approached to volunteer to bake the cookies. That's what a female professor likes to hear: can you bake some cookies for us, dear?Anonymous -- 6:35 PM, September 22, 2014

Despite the challenges presented by my opponent, our September 14th fundraiser at Jacks in Dana Point was a tremendous success. Many thanks to AD 73 delegates and Co-Sponsors Rosemarie Allaire and Steve Stewart who pulled everything together after the last minute cancellation [perpetrated by Wendy’s opponent].…
My opponent, Bill Brough, is in foreclosure on his home. As of July 21st, he owes over $44,689.82 in back mortgage payments, which raises the obvious question: “If Mr. Brough can’t manage his personal finances, how can voters expect him to be a good steward of taxpayer dollars in Sacramento?” You can read more here: http://www.theliberaloc.com/2014/09/16/ad-73-candidate-bill-brough-facing-foreclosure/

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….
