Life sc1ences to articulate with CSUSM By Laurie Bricknell Staff Writer

Man sought in burglaries Campus Patrol officials have begun a search for a man suspected of an assault of a woman in a student parking lot. Officials believe the man may also be involved in a series of car burglaries that have plagued the campus. A woman reported to Campus Patrol last week that she was harassed by a man at 9 a.m. in Lot 12. She claims the man asked her if she could help him jump-start his car and she

Students will soon be able to obtain a four-year education in biology without leaving San Marcos. With the rapidly advancing cooperation between Palomar College and the California State University at San Marcos, students wishing to continue their educations in biology at the four-yearuniversity will be able to in the fall of 1990. Due to the efforts of Chairman of Life Sciences Gary Alderson, and the founding faculty member of the biology department at CSUSM, Larry Cohen, negotiations for acceptable transfer courses will soon be completed. "We are developing a spirit of cooperation. We have discussed curriculum development, articulation and other shared concerns," said Alderson. Where there is a restriction on accepted courses of transfer with the University of California at San Diego, the ongoing negotiations with CSUSM will make classes here at Palomar more acceptable for transfer. A broader range of courses will be offered. "Since CSUSM will be opening its doors in the fall we want to get the word out to students," said Alderson. CSUSM will be sharing facilities

'We have discussed curriculum development, articulation and other shared concerns.' Gary Anderson, Life Sciences Chairman with San Diego State University here in San Marcos until the actual completion of their own facilities. Alderson said that according to President/Superintendent of Palomar, Dr. George Boggs, the life sciences department is ahead of other departments with the articulation. To encourage high school students wishing to start their college education at Palomar and then transferring to CSUSM, a workshop between San Marcos High School and the two colleges was held in the fall of 1989. Visiting students were able to get a hands-on experience in the laboratory by using the electron microscope, an ergometer and a respirometer. "Judging by feedback I received from students and the appreciation shown by teachers, I feel we were quite successful," said Alderson. Alderson hopes to have another workshop sometime next semister.

Dr. Goody Berk, chairperson of the child development department (seated), and Patty Moyer, television studio supervisor, prepare themselves for the next session of a televised class on child development. The "props" were donated by First Steps, Ltd.

Goody's Goodies Kaleidoscopic best describes the recent additions to educational television's child development class. Toys, puzzles, and plush animals are among the menagerie donated to the "Child Development I" TV class by First Steps, Ltd., an Ohio company that manufactures toys and children's furniture. The class airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 9 a.m. on cable channels Daniels 35 and Dimension 28. Instructor of the course, Dr. Hulda "Goody" Berk said, "The use of the toys and other learning objects

at various ages can be demonstrated exceptionally well on television," Berk said. "They help so much in this class, which provides a broad overview of human development, from conception to adulthood." Berk said the donated items exceed $1,000 in value and that the items will be used in other classes her department teaches.

Salas, Brad Allinson, Sean Jacobs and Anthony Stone, who ripped away with second prize for fitness apparel. Tina Rosilio and Tracy Tatta dynamically danced "Hi and Low" on and off the stage, imitating the duo band, Milli Vanilli. With classy synchronicity, Jamila Akimwanile, Neda Ataie, Elisia, and Tresh rythmatically executed Janet Jackson's "You Need Me."

Not everyone could win first place, but all airband performers did have something in common ... fun. "We enjoyed performing ... became better friends ... and we know we did good and that's what counts," said members of the Jackson quartet. For the contest, all actors put out high energy at low costs. "I bought my top at a rummage sale for two dollars," said Carr. Tina Rosilio and Tracy Tatta did not put any money into their act, mostly "just a lot of time." Motley Crue may have

spent "$50 bucks at most." What will first prize winner Weber do with his $225 dollars? ''I'm going to Disneyland!" exclaimed Weber, while interviewed live over Neo 99. Weber also said he was going to "divide up some of the money with the girls, (who helped him in the act) but with most of the money, I' II put it towards the school government ... maybe a picnic or something."

agreed. Then he asked if she would get into the car and try to start the engine while he looked under the hood of the car. When she did so, the man tried to push her into the rear seat but she managed to get away. Her description of the assailant matches the description of a man suspected of several car burglaries on campus. According to Campus Patrol officer Mike Garcia, the man has been seen around Lots 12 and 14. He is a white male, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing approximately 150 pounds, with sandy blond hair and an unshaven face. "His looks are unmistakable," said Garcia. "He is real untidy and looks totally out of place among the students here at the college." Campus Patrol Director Boyd Mahan warns that anyone who sees

Hey!

the man should not " try to be a hero. Just call us and inform us about it and we'll take it from there," he said. An Escondido police officer first spotted the man examining parked cars at night two weeks ago. The officer relayed the information to Garcia, who said he later observed the man "walking aimless! y around campus. "I followed him and watched him closely," said Garcia, "but he didn't do anything and just went away." Last week, the man was again observed on campus, this time cruising around Lot 12 in a fourdoor gold Lincoln Town Car. Campus Patrol officers report that the man eventually drove off. Despite similar descriptions of the suspect in the burglary cases and assault incident, officials are treating the cases independently.

country. "Car thieves do this sort of thing because it makes it difficult for the police to trace them and the stolen vehicles," said·Edwards. Campus Patrol Director Boyd Mahan points out that the theft occurred in Lot 12, an area he says is often the site of thefts. "It's a big lot and a person can walk in there and get lost among the cars," explains Mahan. "Besides that, there'splenty of activity going on there, with people constantly driving in and out and rushing to and from classes. They just don't notice anything." At about midnight, Campus Patrol officers became suspicious when the look-alike pick-up was seen still parked in the same spot. After conducting a background check on the vehicle, Sheriff's deputies learned it had been reported stolen from Santa Ana. "We've never had a stolen vehicle dropped off at the campus before," said Mahan. Sooter recalls she was informed by her insurance adjustor that Toyota pick-ups are "hot numbers" and are commonly stolen because they are easy to break into.

Islam unlike Ku Klux Klan; does not promote racism

I;

Editor's Note: This letter is, in part, a response to a letter published March 2. I find it ridiculous that Dean Wyman or anyone else would attempt to compare the Nation oflslam movement with the Ku Klux Klan or any other white racist groups. Wyman does not know his history! When has the Nation of Islam lynched a white person or committed an act of violence or burned anybody' s property because of their color? The answer is never! Since its inception in the early 1930s, followers oflslam have been consistently respectful of law and order and they strive to undo the vicious effects of American slavery and racism against black Americans by using a doctrine of love for self and self-reliance (Members don't accept welfare and unemployment compensation). The KKK is directly responsible for the murder of thousands of blacks, other minorities and liberal whites and continues to carry out acts of terrorism and bloodshed. In some ghetto areas where the Nation of Islam has set-up residence, drugs, gang crimes, and violence are in decline. Prison and law enforcement officials often praise theN ation of Islam, not for its theology, though it has a right to expound it, but for the success that it is having in rehabilitating drug addicts and criminals. The "Theology for African Liberation" panel was well conceived and represents reality. The African studies program and the B.S.A. should be commended for their courage in presenting an in-depth view of the complex nature ofblack America. Palomar students are well served by this kind of exposure! It is very irresponsible of The Telescope to sensationalize the extreme comments of Minister Edward X and omit the positive and constructive ones (of the other speakers). Gezai Berhane Student

Immediate dreams of wealth pop when grads land first "real" job Many students are under the impression that they will be making about $30,000 a year starting salary when they start a career. Unfortunately for most graduates, trying to find a career that pays this well is going to be disappointing. Life after college is more difficult than people imagine. Some college counselors tell students that a starting salary for most students is in the $20,000 range, depending on their major. One Palomar counselor said many young students come to her and say they want a career that will enable then to buy a nice house and a BMW in a few years. Wouldn't we all. When students enter the work force, they probably will not find a career in their field of study. They are more likely to find a "temporary" job to put food on the table. After experience is gained and opportunities open up, one is in a better position to find a career that harmonizes with their major. Although some careers have good starting salaries, the average cost of

Was CBS right in suspending Andy Rooney for the comments he made? (Photos by Sheri Leppien)

Andy Rooney's job includes making people exasperated Did you ever wonder what would happen if a news commentator actually said what was on his mind? Well you needn't wonder anymore. In the past few weeks the public has witnessed the suspension and reinstatement of Andy Rooney of the CBS news show, 60 Minutes, for doing the thing he was hired for, personal observations. Rooney was suspended without pay for several weeks after being quoted in The Advocate, a national gay newspaper as having said, "I believed all along that people are born with equal intelligence, but blacks have watered down their genes because the less intelligent ones are the ones that have the most children. They drop out of school early, do drugs and get pregnant." Rooney also offended many homosexuals when during his year-in-review special he wasquotedas saying, "There was some recognition in 1989 of the fact that many of the ills which kill us are self-induced. Too much food, alcohol, drugs, homosexual unions and cigarettes. They're all known quite often to lead to a premature death." Personally I don't agree with Rooney's statements, but I do agree with what was obviously a public outcry defending the sharp-edged commentator in the form of lower ratings, telephone calls and letters. Last week Rooney was reinstated to his original post. But instead of apologizing, Rooney made it clear

Staff Commentary Michelle Pollino he felt no anger or apathy for those he offended. Instead he cited numerous examples of his past which lead to the conclusion that Rooney isn't racist, but far from it. Rooney also made it clear how he felt towards those who condemned him. In that March 4 broadcast, he asked, "Do I have any opinions that might irritate some people?" Rooney answered himself by saying, "Your damn right I do. That's what I'm here for." It is obvious that the public was wise enough to realize that suspending someone for sharing his opinion is not grounds for suspension, especially if those opinions do not necessarily concur with the producers'. What would America become if we could only say what others tell us to say? A society akin to George Orwell's "Big Brother" from his novelJ984. Thank God we are living in 1990. Maybe what this world needs is more people like Andy Rooney, a prominent television figure, that speaks his mind. And who doesn't shudder when his hands get slapped.

"It all depends on how people take it. I don't think he should have been suspended, it was his opinion."

"He has a right to say it, but CBS has the right to suspend him to protect ratings. If he said it in public it would have been no big deal, but he said it on television."

"I guess you can't please all the people. I suppose they were right in what they did to Rooney."

"They did the right thing in suspending him, but he is still guaranteed freedom of speech. The action that CBS took should apply to everyone there."

"He works for CBS so they have a right to suspend him if they feel ratings will drop."

By Alex Pisarczyk Staff Writer "As usual, I woke up early to go surfing. As I walked down the stairs towards the beach, I noticed an unfamiliar sign. The sign read: 'Danger, Pesticide Spill- Enter Water at Your Own Risk.' "There were still people out surfing, so I went surfing anyway," explained Jordan Bloom, a Palomar student and local surfer. Bloom has experienced contaminated water in the San Diego area many times. "I once swallowed some water at Cardiff, and it made me sick to my stomach almost instantly," he said. In the past year, beaches in the Mission Bay area have been closed 80 times due to raw sewage contamination. Shellfish and marine plant populations in the San Diego Harbor are being depleted by toxic paints used to prevent bamicle growth on boats in the Harbor. The highest level of PCBs ever found in California exist on the north shore of the San Diego Bay, according to the California State Mussel Watch. These chemicals are among the most dangerous to mankind. In one day, over 800 million gallons of waste were dumped into the Santa Monica by municipal waste water plants. The Bay was placed on the Government's National Estuary Program, which provides Federal

assistance to develop and maintain a clean-up. The five plants in the San Diego/ North County area that release waste water into the ocean are located in Oceanside, Encinitas, San Elijo , Point Lorna and Escondido. The waste water released by these plants is treated by removing all the oils and breaking down the solid matter with a chemical called chloriform. This chemical is then removed and the waste is pumped out to 200 feet below sea level. Greg Peters, an environmental specialist for the San Diego Regional Quality Control Board explained, "The waste level in the ocean is low enough to stay in the primary discharge treatment level ...The information is inconclusive because one side claims that there is too much pollution and the other side says that it's more under control than it is." Palomar surfers continue to be disgusted. Drake complains, "One day after surfing, I was walking down the beach and saw a hypodermic needle. I had heard on the news that some medical supplies had been released into the ocean by accident." The supplies were spotted up and down the Southern California coastline for several weeks. According to Mia Petner, a marine biologist at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, "There are currently high levels of heavy metals, PCB' sand

other highly toxic chemicals in the San Diego Bay ... .It's getting pretty bad down there." Palomar student Todd Drake, also a local surfer, agrees. "I see garbage out in the ocean regularly ..! also see people littering on the beach frequently. People should learn to respect the beaches or else they will slowly deteriorate," he says. The Surfrider Foundation, a non-

problems than ever before, our ocean is used as a dump, and irreplacable surfing beaches have been destroyed." Similar occurrences in other parts of the state include a Hum bolt County lumber plant which releases its wood pulp into the ocean. The pulp contains so many dioxins that local surfers report severe throat swelling and body rashes.

"I once swallowed some water at Cardiff, and it made me sick to my stomach almost instantly." Jordan Bloom, Palomar student profit organization, is dedicated to keeping the ocean protected, and to enhancing our enjoyment of the world's oceans and coastal resources. They help get people involved in preserving the ocean. "We have laws to protect our environment, yet they are only as effective as the people who support and enforce them," the Foundation states. "Good intentions will not save our waves or beaches; they need your help today." According to the Foundation, "Our beaches are besieged by more complex

Closer to home, Los Angeles sewage systems have spilled over 40 million gallons of untreated and partially treated sewage into coastal creeks, storm drains, and beaches in the last two years. Bloom feels surfers should come together to help solve the problem "I feel that the surfers of Palomar could form a group to get involved and help preserve the ocean in any way they could," he concluded.

Bookstore staff shares common goal of service By Aaron Hirschorn Staff Writer

Lana Plemons, who works at the Palomar College Bookstore photo counter, rings up a chocolate bar for a customer.

Selling books is not just an open-and-shut case for the Palomar Bookstore staff. The entire group mobilizes its talents to survive not only through the rush period of selling textbooks, but throughout the entire school year as well. With hectic times come unusual situations. Staff members recall a woman who came in to purchase a new nutrition textbook during the spring semester bookstore rush. She showed the cashier the original book, which she borrowed from her professor. The cashier's eyes widened when she saw that the book had ballooned to twice its original size. The student whispered to the cashier that

while she was reading it in the bathroom, the book slipped and wound up in the toilet. When the cashier informed her that the book cost$43, the woman calmly said, "Oh well, I guess I will just have to return it to him the way it is." The bookstore staff say they enjoy the common goal of serving the students. Virginia Dower, director of bookstore operations says she has been working with students for the past 22 years. Many students at one time or another have had to stop at "The Cage" and talk to Doris Smith. Smith, who manages it ,is not particularly fond of the name "The Cage."

Palomar students go live By Amy Alexander Entertainment Editor This semester, Palomar's RTV Department is offering the class RTV 25 which gives students a chance to write, produce, direct, and anchor a live news report through Educational Television (ETV) Monday through Friday for five minutes at 9 p.m.The broadcast is called North County News break and is on Daniels Cable Vision (Channel35), and Dimension Cable (Channel28 and 4). "The students run the newscast," said Instructor Bob Sheppard. "They decide on the content. Last time (two years ago) it had a North County emphasis mixed with world news. That's a decision they'll be making." The show will air on March 12 and will go through the semester, the last show airing on May 21. "The T.V. news class has existed for a long time," said Sheppard. "They were doing newscasts

on tape. I came up with the idea of doing live news and ETV made it possible." The live casts began four years ago, according to Sheppard, and the class is offered one semester every two years. Sheppard said he hopes the college will be able to offer live news broadcasting year-round in the future. "I think it's just a matter of being competitive with what other colleges provide." Last year Palomar began a cooperative venture with Daniels Cable Vision in the form of a broadcast called The Carlsbad Report, which uses Palomar students as reporters, directors, producers and anchors for a 10-minute Carlsbad based news report. It is a class which gives the students college credits while actually reporting the news live for a small community. Sheppard said he hopes that the Carlsbad report will lead into a year-round news cast. "The benefit," he said,"is that the students who want to get experience with news will not have to wait two years for this class."

Comets swim, dive team can't be sunk By Ken Baurmeister Sports Editor "It was exiting and it was exhausting," said women's swimming coach Patti Waterman about the Border Relays held here March 23. Nine colleges and 175 athletes participated in the invitational meet and Palomar's women came away with five first places and the men with three of the same. In swim meets, the swimming and diving score totals are added to give a total points score. "Overall Palomar's men ended up in second place behind Golden West, who was number one in the state last year and the woman came in third behind San Diego Mesa and Golden West," said Waterman. The five firsts scored by the women were divided between swimming and diving but not between athletes. "Highlights for the women besides Shanyn Williams winning two diving events were Crystal Hollins winning the 50 and the 100 free style for Palomar," said Waterman. "She also anchored a relay that won for us." The other swimmers participating in the winning relay were Laura Smith, Aline Sullivan and Melissa Lynds. That first places were secured by the women divers is a surprise in itself. "The women are brand new," said Waterman. "We don't know how they will be going to, but they are doing very well. They are both new to the diving world and it is a lot of fun for the diving coach Lesly Woodstra. She has been here for four years and has been doing an outstanding job with the athletes."

Shanyn Williams shows top form in one of her first place dives on March 3. The women's team placed third; the men placed second. For the men's team the Golden West swimmers controlled the pool as usual. In different events the Comets scored 16 places, but according to Waterman "the Golden West swimmers dominated. Their score was double from any other team." Palomar's men's diving team was another story. "The big thing for the men was when they took first, second, and third in the diving

out of 12 individuals, said Waterman. 'That was exiting." The winning divers were Chris Ronalds who won both the one and the three meter diving event and Lee Florian and Jon Neville. The Border Relay competition is important to all swimmers because the men can compete in events that will not be held until the championship meet on April 28 at Saddle-

back College. "The women do swim all the events they participate in except for the 1000 yard free style which is never held anywhere except in our pool once a year," said Waterman. "Girls that like to do distance get an opportunity to express themselves. The most woman ever get to do is 500, so they get to double their distance."

By Nick Sherr Staff Writer After five pre-season matches and one conference meeting, the Palomar mens' tennis team has come up empty. Six straight loses ended with painfully low final scores for the Comets.'This is my worst start ever. We're 0-6, I've never been zero and anything," said Coach Jon Cnossen. In their first four outings the Palomar team could only muster 1 point out of a possible 9 points in each of the first three matches, and they were skunked 0-9 in the other. Then the bout with Pima College, Arizona added insult to injury, but with a slightly more respectable score of 3-6. The final score in the conference opener against MiraCosta college was 2-7. Cnossen makes no excuses for the loses but explained,"! don't think the other teams have been any better. We just haven't been consistent on keeping the ball in play, or consistent in effort." To put an end to this losing streak Cnossen called a meeting with the players. Cnossen said that during the meeting, "the players had a chance to vent their gripes. About me, other players, anything. I think it was good. We'll see if it was." Through these rough times, Cnossen has been holding optional practices for the team Monday through Friday at 7 a.m. "About three or four of the guys from the top eight are coming out to do practice drills and get in more court time. I think it might help us a bit," he said. According to the still optimistic Cnos-

He also changed the doubles team lineup which he thinks will be helpful. The line-up for the first round of Conference play at MiraCosta on Feb. 27 was Rob Schaffer, Scott

Brown, and Don Wieher, playing singles with Don Wieher and Khamphay Chanthanaley playing at first doubles. Rounding out the line-up were Brent Thornton, Robbie Seeds, Greg Crawley, and Getty Lee.

Dreams (continued from page 4) a home in San Diego County is $215,000 and climbing. Cars are equally affordable with an average cost of approximately $14,500, which is a lot for so little. Oh, what a feeling! It would be nice to dream that we will have, at the very least, the same job security as our parents enjoy but reality forces us to wakeup and face the reality business demands in changing jobs. B usinesse~ are bound to fail, be merged with other companies, or face demand~ from stockholders to trim the work force. The result of these action: is that those who only have a limited number of skills will be out i1 the cold longer. It's a reality some people don't like to think about. Students need to be more realistic when making decisions and thin! more in the long term. This applies to financial and career aspects o their lives.

Along with enjoying their work, the staff also sees their job as challenging. - "It is a challenge to keep up when classes are cancelled or instructors change textbooks," says Karen Spooner , supervisor of shipping and receiving of textbooks. Textbook Manager Frank Mendez has been working at the bookstore for the past 14 years, and is in charge of processing all book orders turned in by the faculty. He was a student at Palomar in 197374 majoring in business administration. Mendez says, " there is a constant stress of always inventorying and ordering books." As he reflects on his days as a student he sees Palomar growing so much that space on campus is becom ing lim i~ed .
