The Ear comes of age: 21 issues!

Professor Virginia Shank welcomes the audience.



Last night saw the publication party for IVC's literary journal, The Ear.  It was a grand evening distinguished, Rebel Girl thought, by the shy and shining pride the readers took in their work as they shared it with the audience. Take a look and see if you can see what she saw in their faces. Congratulations to all.



The welcoming party.

Is that the college's photo booth?

The college should be proud of providing such an opportunity for our students as well as members of the community. A class act indeed. I am glad it has returned.

Love The Ear. Glad to see it's back. Thanks to Virginia who persevered. Those who want to support it should consider a donation to help with costs of production:

So although custodians have complained about Vince Coopers harassment,his lies and personal attacks I here he is still at it despite he is leaving.

Yes, but he is still leaving, right?

I spoke to some of the custodians today and they said they haven't had any confirmation on it other than what they have heard through the grapevine

Well I have heard people other than custodians talking about his departure quite openly.

Sounds like confirmation. I will be sure to let them know.

It's called holding people accountable and making them do their job for a change. Biggest group of whiners on campus.

Who you calling a whiner?

It's called a Supervisor that came into a department not knowing the job. What you may call whiners they call it intelligence,wise,incorruptible and smart. Wise enough to see it coming and the courage to do something about it. Not laying down to anyone who comes in corrupt from the beginning. I can go on talking about my friends in that department but it would be a waste of time speaking about what is so obvious to many...that they are not easily fooled or mislead.
