PLEASE DO NOT PRINT MY NAME BECAUSE I WOULD LIKE TO REMAIN ACTIVE IN THE EFFORTS WE ARE MAKING TO RESOLVE DIFFERENCES. THANK YOU.
FROM A CONCERNED MENDOCINO COAST RESIDENT:
This well considered article and the valuable comments following it are very much appreciated. When Jeff Marsee came down to talk to our community about the potential removal of Greg Grantham from our campus he was as condescending and dictatorial as he could possible have been. He didn't appear to listen to anything constructive. We care about our campus and are not working to remove it from the CR mother ship. We have formed a college advocacy committee which is concerned with trying to support what is good here and to help bring about what is needed and missing. We have sub-committees looking into housing, curriculum, information gathering, financial assistance from the community, and only one small group looking into the options regarding our stewardship organization. One sub-committee is working hard to bring back the "Winter In The Redwoods" gala event to raise money for student scholarships. We voted overwhelmingly for measure Q. and our property owners are paying for those bonds. Yet what we have received is a redesigned library that is far less user and staff friendly than what we had to begin with. We have no science lab repairs and renovations and we have hallways with no electrical outlets for janitors to plug their vacuume cleaners into. And then there is the business of a world renowned woodworking program that is very happy in their present quarters which overlook Pudding Creek. Administration is planning on moving them when no one associated with the program wishes to move or spend the vast amount of money it would require to do so. All of these kinds of situations could be resolved reasonably if only someone were listening and willing to discuss rather than dictate. Thank you for this forum.
