Resignations, ousters follow recall effort Johnson resigns presidential seat By Mike LaJoie Staff Writer Associated Student Government PresidentErik Johnson resigned from his position on Jan. 28 during Palomar's Governing Board meeting. Johnson's rt.;signation came as a surprise because at last week's Associated Student Government meeting, he had challenged the validity of a recall effort organized to oust him. Last November, Johnson and three other student officers were put on probation after beer cans were found in the ASG office. At the end oflastsemester, Honor Society President Darlene Schuck-Larimer petitioned to have the four officers positions recalled, and collected over 500 signatures. Less than 400 were needed to initiate a recall election.

Johnson drew sharp criticism from other student officers regarding his efforts to impede the recall~ charged Johnson was afraid to face the election. Despite his withdrawal from the ASG, Johnson said he intends to maintain an interest in the student government activities. ''I'm still going to stay involved in student politics and attend the meetings." "I thought it was better for everything that I resigned." he said after the meeting. Palomar President/Superintendent Dr. George Boggs said he thougfitJohnson might have tried to stay in his position. "I was surprised to hear he changed hts mind and resign~d," Boggs said after the meeting."I respect his decision, though. He had his decisions for doing that. He had other priorities to take care of." With Johnson's resignation, Paul Raineri succeeds his position as president.


Remaining senators voted out By Mark Wiberg News Editor The Associated Student Government, under new president Paul Raineri, voted out tw<? of the four officers who were targeted by a student recall effort. ASG President Erik Johnson and Treasurer Anthony Montroy resigned earlier in the week. Citing a by-law from theASGconstitution, Raineri asked the senators to vote on whether senators "Lowell Kepics and Tom Turk

brought "discredit and disrespect" when caught with empty beer cans in the student government office. Johnson and Montroy were also involved and all were put on probation. A four to three vote in favor of removing them from office passed. "We should be, whenever possible, self regulating," Raineri said. He added that this Article 9, Section 6 by-law allowed the ASG to do just that. Turk called the vote "pretty drastic". Both Montroy and Turk were not happy â&#x20AC;˘ see VOTE, page 3

Owen's Peak, Palomar 'P' maY become history Students and community begin fight to save landmark By Roman S. Koenig Editor-in-Chief

Public Information Archives/Photo Courtesy

Students take a look back at the Palomar "P" on Owen's Peak after liming it in 1952. The top of the mountain and the college landmark may fall to development soon. ¡

A long-time Palomar College landmark may become part of history if the mountain it rests on succumbs to development, according to a former student official and the chairman of the San Marcos Land Conservancy. Both said this week that the Palomar "P" atop Owen's Peak may be replaced by homes if the property's owner decides to develop the area. Michael Slavinski, chairman of the San Marcos Land Conservancy, is looking to take a more conservative approach to saving the land. Former student senator Tom Turk wants to rail y students up port to preserve the landmark. "The timing's good," said Slavinski of the effort begun to save the land as open space.

"What we do is get involved in a project at the beginning stages before development is approved by the (San Marcos) city council," he said. Once the project gets to the city council and is approved, however, Slavinski said, options to preserve the land are limited._ According to Slavinski, a San Marcos resident since 1968, further action on the part of his group hinges on a response from the owners of the property, who have received a proposal concerning alternative uses of the land. "The land owners seem to be very responsive to us," he said. "But, of course, we can't come up with a plan until they give us a response and how much it's going to cost." The owner of the property, Gerrie Ryan, could not be reached for comment concerning possible development or preservation of the property. â&#x20AC;˘ see lllSTORY,page 3

NEWS Class addition policy reduced by 6 weeks Fiscal concerns cited as reason By Jacques Do.mercq Staff Writer

Students who enrolled this spring noticed the policy for adding classes has been drastically changed. Instead of having eight weeks to continue adiling semester-length credit classes, the new deadline is now two weeks after the beginning of the semester. The deadline for adding classes has been moved to today as a result of academic and fiscal concerns. This change is expected to have a tremendous effect on the student population and some students are already voicing dismay at the change. "Last semester we had eight weeks to add on classes," said student Jon Lipson. ''This is a little rash."

The Director of Admissions and Veteran Services, Herman Lee, explained there were compelling reasons behind the change. "It is not academically sound for instructors to admit students after they have missed numerous class sessions," he said. "This practiCe can also put the student's academic record in jeopardy." The fiscal reason is:that the statesupporting funds are based on the first census which is taken at the end of the second week of the semester. The institution must fund any enrollment after that date. These funds are not projected or available in Palomar's budget. The exceptions to the deadline include reinstatements into the same section by the instructor, open entry/exit classes, switching sections of the same course, and R.O.P. classes.

Palomar student Tom Turk is spearheading an effort to save Owen's Peak and the "P." to make saving the Palomar "P" and Owens Peak an important issue on the college campus.

Bumper stickers advocating the land's preservation may also be circulated, he said.

Slavinski said that there are various ways of preserving the land, from purchasing the property outright to having the area designated as an open-space easement in the city.

Turk's tactics include circulating a petition to students in support of saving the mountain. Turk was also looking to create an ad-hoc committee within the ASG which would be co-chaired by him and Biosphere Club President Tony Mufioz.

"We just want to ensure that it doesn't get developed," said Turk. ''I'd like to save as much of the mountain as possible - not just the 'P'- because I don't believe that they' II put houses up there and leave the 'P."'

"We're a conservative group," Slavinski explained. "It's not in our interest to getintoahigh-profile campaign (to save land)."

According to another former senator, Lowell Kepics, Turk will still work in this area even though he is no longer on the ASG.

Currently, the non-profit group is engaged in trying to preserve land around San Marcos Creek, he said. Owen's Peak is not high on the organization's list of priorities, he said. Turk, on the other hand, wants

Turk said that once the petition is circulated, a form letter will be drafted and sent to the mayor and Planning Department of the City of San Marcos. From there, he said a workshop would be formed to look at options to save the land.

HISTORY Continued from page 1

VoTE Continued from page 1 with the lack of support from the ASG. "They railroaded us," Turk said. He added. that the ASG was almost becoming a separate entity, separate from the Student Activities Office. Now, he said, the SAO will once again resume it's policy making role in the student government. "A lot of people have put in time ¡ time on the recall," Turk said. After the vote, Rainer told Turk and Kepics that he was sorry to see them go. "I'd like to see you guys remain active," Raineri said. The student spearheading the recall, Darlene Schuck-Larimer, who is president of Alpha Gamma Sigma, said she was pleased with the tum of events. She added that she would like to see Kepics, nominated for the open senate seat, continue on in the ASG.

"He was the only one that was big enough to admit that he made a mistake," she said. Reaction among senators was mixed. "As much as I hate to see it happen," Senator Denny Ngo said, "I think it was just." Ngo was nominated for Raineri's previous post, vice-president. Senator Massimo Bordi said the recall would have been good for the ASG. "It would have shown both sides," Bordi said, "They(the former officers) made a mistake and they are sorry. It shouldn't takeanythingaway from their skills as senators." Jim Bowen, director of Student Activities and the ASG adviser, said it was an excellent beginning for Raineri, the new ASG president. "Paul assumed the duties, and took charge," Bowen said. "They did an excellent job on a rather sad issue." Raineri took over as president when Erik Johnson resigned Jan. 28 at Palomar's Governing Board

Turk said he wants to get both community and college support rallying behind the effort, because open land is being developed so quickly in the city. Slavinski also echoed the same sentiment. "Basically, what we want to do is put our feelers on and see what the community wants and is interested in," said Slavinski. "We feel we have five to 10 years left and there won't be any open space left" meeting. This opened up nominations within the ASG for the vice-president position as well as three other spots. A treasurer position was left vacant when Senator Anthony Montroy resigned Jan. 26. "It (the recall) had some influence on my decision," Montroy said. "To fight a recall takes energy." He added that battling the move to oust him would have taken too much energy to concentrate on studentgovernmentissues. He also cited his school schedule as another reason for his resignation, but said he will stay involved. ''I'm still going to all of the meetings. I'm worried about the government's focus," Montroy said. "Paul (Raineri) has a problem standing up to people, and when an individual has that problem, it becomes difficult to keep the students' interests in mind." "The ASG will never be the same again," Turk said.

MEChA begins plans to ·refinish campus mural By Sean Fitting Staff Writer MEChA' s efforts to restore the mural painted on the racquetball courts are "still in the preparatory stages", according to the club's faculty co-advisor John Valdez. Part of the preparation is raising an additional $1,700 to fund the project. The original estimated cost of the project, made two years ago, was $2000 dollars. The club announced at their Nov. 21 meeting that they had raised $1003 towards their goal. Valdez said the money was raised by selling chocolate bars as well as food at Kit Carson on Mexican Independence . Day,

and on campus during Cinco de Mayo celebrations. At the meeting, Palomar President George Boggs announced that the President's Associate Group "a group of civic and business leaders who support the college by gtvmg contributions," would match up to $1000 of the clubs money. The original estimate allocated $1200 for materials and gave the artist a $800 stipend. Valdez said, after consulting San Diego artist Salvador Torrez, that this was not a realistic figure because it is going to take two to three months to complete the project The club now estimates that an additional $1700 needs to be raised.

Help Wanted

According to Valdez, the club is planning to raise the additional money by selling tickets to a MEChA reunion dinner and celebration on Cinco de Mayo. The club is working in conjunction with the newly formed MEChAAlumni Organization. ·

Student governme~t president urges support for recycling progr·am

Editor's note: Due to a production error in the Dec. 13 issue of The Telescope,thefollowing story was not jumped to an assigned page and was cut short. Here is the story in its entirety.

The mural, unveiled on Cinco de Mayo 1980, was painted by three former Palomar students, Edgar Olivares, Manuel Sepulveda and George Papciak.

"Do not throw away paper. Recycle it, and we '11 give you a place to do that" That's the message that Paul Raineri, president of student government, wants to get acroSs to the students and staff. He said that along with Grounds 'Supervisor Rick Kratcoski and volunteers, he has been working this year on building a recycling program that is - stable and ongoing. "We need the help of students and staff to help reclaim this precious resource," said Raineri. According to Raineri, containers for three kinds of papers have been placed inside various campus buildings, including the Comet Center and the Student Union. Separate bins are now available for computer paper, white ledger paper, and colored ledger paper. Raineri said the ledger paper includes handouts, fliers, and returned tests. Rainier said the recycling pro-

gram includes two phases. The first involves cardboard, metal, wood, and now paper. The next step will be to recycle aluminum. He said money will be needed to purchase secure containers for recycling aluminum. "Money needed for aluminum recycling(containers) will come from money made from recycling paper," he said. "The important thing now," he said, "is making the first phase successful." Palomar has employed Liberty Recycling, a local recycling company, to pick up the recycled paper. According to Raineri, the recycling program will receive $70 a ton for computer paper, $50 for white ledger, and $10 for colored ledger paper. "Obviously," Raineri said, "there's a great capability of generating revenue. "Paper is the most consumed recyclable material on campus," he said. He added that Palomar College goes through approximately 300,000 pounds year. "Ifeveryone pitches in,"Raineri said, "we can easily collect 50,000 pounds." Raineri said that the recycling program saves space in the trash dumpsters and at local dump sites.

THE TELESCOPE Volume 45, Number 14

/9 9 2_ THE "PAR..TY"


Psuedo power of the press? It would be an understatement to say that the ASG has been plagued with controversy over the past few months. But now, it seems, things are changing. Aftertwomembers,PresidentErikJohnson and treasurer Anthony Montroy, resigned and two senators, Lowell Kepics and Tom Turk, were voted out by their own peers, this changed ASG appears to be headed forward . This week's events avoided a drawn- out recall effort by dissatisfied students and put the unfortunate past behind the ASG, allowing members to concentrate on student issues. The new president, active in the past with the successful recycling program at Palomar, took control of the ASG and did what was best for the ASG. Ifthe recall would have continued as planned, The Tel~pe would have been expected to take a stand. But in this case, The Telescope was caught between a rock and a hard-place. This newspaper receives a majority of its funding from the ASG, and the four representatives in question were some of the highest ranking officers in the governmentPresident Johnson, Treasurer Montroy and senators Lowell Kepics and Tom Turk. In light of these facts, the staff was rightfully concerned about how the paper's funding comes into the picture. Two ofthefourmembers up forrecallaccused The Telescope of sensationalism and shoddy reporting. More than once, staffers were told our funding was in jeopardy. Had we come out in favor of the recall, we ran the risk of the removal of much-needed funding. Coming out against the recall, could be construed that the staff was bowing· to political demands rather than exercising its right to freedom of the press. Before this week's events, we at The Telescope had opted not to take a stance at all. We had decided not to decide. Our funding and ethics were too important for us to risk over an issue such as this. In the real world, we would have no qualms about taking a stand on a recall issue or any other issues because we would have no political institution funding us to answer to. As much as we would like this college to be a microcosm of the real world, it is sometimes not The Telescope is bound to a political organization in an area where financial loss could spell the demise of this paper. The actions of the new president spared The Telescope a neutral staff editorial as well as putting the ASG in forward gear.

• success tn publicity only One year ago, the United States was engaged in a war to free the nation of Kuwait from Iraqi rule. Today. we have involved ourselves in another war - a war against Japan that some say is an attempt to free our country from Japanese economic control. In this fight, however. we will be the only losers. SincePresidentGeorgeBush'striptoJapan in thenarneof"jobs,jobs,jobs," America has started "Operation Japan-bash." In this conflict, the objective is to get Japan to play what we think is fair 1n the economic game. Our first assault was to get car-buyers to buy American again. One car dealer in the Mid-West started the ball rolling by having prospective customers beat a Toyota truck to pieces. A chemical manufacturing company back East vowed recently to give employees interested in buyingacara$1,000 stipend to encourage buying American. In these examples. there is one thing that has apparently elluded this campaign, and that is that many Japanese products sold in this country are made here, too. In light of this, the beating of that Toyota truck is an insult to the American workers who built it The handing out of $1000 stipends to employees to buy American cars supports a system of management in this nation· s auto industry that resulted in the very reputation of poor quality they are now trying so desperately to reverse. Perhaps the most profound example of how interdependent our two economies are was the attempt by the city of Greece, New York to order John Deere tractors instead of Komatsu, only to find that the components of the John Deere products were made in JaJnl1 and the Komatsu components were made in the United States. Many American products that are of higher quality are made under Japanese management According to John Chancellor of NBC news. research shows that American workers produce better quality merchandise and are more productive in general under Japanese management than under American management The bottom line is that our economies have become interdependent on each other. To "bash" the Japanese is both ignorant and unnecessary,especiallysincetheonlypeople we may truly hurt is ourselves.

New "late registration" policy causes outrage Dear Editor: How outraged I am to see that the Administration has changed the late registration policy without ever asking for student input. The Student Government and the students had no idea what was in store for them and I believe that's the way the Administrators planned it. In the past we received eight weeks to add a class, but new policy only allows us 10 days and that's the way it will stay unless students stand up & demand justice. The Administrators say they changed the policy because of a change in funding. Instead of the instructors Average Daily Attendance (A.D.A.) being taken at the second week and again at the eighth week and then averaged, our Administrators lobbied for this new policy of one A.D.A. count taken twoweeksintothesemesterwhenenrollment is highest and they can cash in on the hoardes of students that typically would have dropped out by the frrst month. Administrators also said that the eight weeks made us sloppy and the new two week policy will make us stronger, more disciplined students. What a crock, it shows how out of reach they are with us if they think that by our following their self serving administrative policy we will be better off than before. What we need to do is set these Administrators down and show them a side they seem to be forgetting. The students

Anyone wishing to get involved or just see a bigger picture, contact me. Tom Turk A.S.G. (SSU-7) I think we are all in agreement that this two-week "late registration policy" is a little drastic.

LIFESTYLE Quiet leader positive about Afrikan History Month AASA President feels more than education needed to quell racial tension By Salvador Marquez Lifestyle Editor


he's unassuming, yet if allowed to, she'll wear down the batteries of any tape recorder. A self-described "quiet little mouse," Carol Johnson was elected ASB treasurer in high school. No one ran against her, Johnson admitted; at term 'send she thought that was the extent of her .public service. Johnson, 38, would later go on to Long Beach State University and become an accountant. That didn't satisfy her, however, so she is studying at Palomar and transferring to the University of California at San Diego in January. She plans to be a bio-medical engineer. "I wanted to do something in my life where I can help people," she said. "And I'm a bit too old to be a doctor." This willingness to serve has placed her in a challenging position - president of the

"African History Month is a time where we deliberately acknowledge the beginnings, some past journeys and the present. You'll find that in anyone's life, let alone a nation of people, that we always want to look into things about our past, whether it's family or culture"

Carol Johnson Afrikan-American Student Alliance President Afrikan-American Student Alliance, organizing Afrikan History Month at Palomar, which she hopes will become a tradition. As the head of the AASA, the assumption is that Johnson is a political animal. If she is, she hides her fangs well. Johnson is basically an introverted private citizen who is learning to cope with becoming a public servant. ''I'm not out to save the world," Johnson

admits, "but I try to be positive to everyone I meet." And this must also include those would oppose her aims in life. Racial and cultural tolerance in this country is strained - as evidenced by the candidacy of Patrick Buchanan and David Duke, the Martin Luther King holiday vote in Arizona and the controversial raps of NWA about the election. Locally, there have been racial incidents on campus. Coupled with the fact that the White Aryan Resistance headquarters is in Fallbrook, the obvious implication might be that a Afrikan History Month celebration isn't welcome at Palomar. "Afrikan History Month is a time where we deliberately acknowledge the beginnings, some past journeys and the present," said Johnson. "You'll find that in anyone's life, let alone a nation of people, that we always want to look into things about our past, whether it's family or culture. This gives us the opportunity to set aside, as a nation, and examine our past, look at it and let other people know about it. This gives us the opportunity to bring it to the forefront for one period of time." The Afrikan-Arnerican Student Alliance plans a month-long celebration and educa- tional campaign about Afrikan-Amerikan

issues on campus for February. Activities will range from the informative (the opening day speakers) to the casual (a trip to the Arsenio Hall Show). Despite the educational slant of Afrikan History Month, Johnson realizes that eliminating the stereotypes isn't the issue of racial tension. "It's not mrt of ignorance that these people do these things," said Johnson. "Their decisions on what they do and how they do it is very calculating." During hard economic times , when anation is in discord, is when racial groups grow in power and strength, according to Johnson. Historically, she said, extremists increase during these times, which is counterproductive to a country. "Oppression to any group is not promoting progress," said Johnson. Progress to her is "positive change," a process of improving society that avoids partisan politics. Some of her activities include visits to high schools and their Afrikan student clubs. Through the clubs, these students are encouraged to continue in school. "Too many kids get lost by the wayside," Johnson claims. "They don't have the in formation, they don't have the resources. Unfortunately, the average high school student is not going to search for these resources by themselves. "They feel better because they are a part of something. If you look at history, people that are a part of something are more success. Unfortunately, even the racial groups know that."

SPORTS New-look spikers dig in for '92 By Dave Mosier Sports Writer

TuE ExTRA PoiNT Sean Dean

"Say it ain't so Joe (Mcilvaine)!" Now that the Super Bowl has come and gone, it's time to get ready for America's favorite pastime, baseball. In just three weeks, spring training will begin and the excitement of a new season will be here. Or will it? This season, San Diego Padres fans will go on bended knee in hope for a change for the better for the boys in the blue pinstripes. During the off season the management of the Padres have done little to enthuse or excite the fans. Tom Werner and his associates who own the Padres enforced a so-called salary cap, which all but handcuffed General Manager Joe Mcilvaine from making any deals to improve the team. Werner and buddies also had the nerve to increase the price of tickets in the outfield seats. True, the Padres picked up an accomplished relief-pitcher in Randy Myers, but that is about it. In the process of making that deal the Padres lost their leadoff hitter Bip Roberts and the team still has holes to fill at third, second and leftfield going into the season. The prospects of a promising season are slim for the Padres, but weirder _things have happened. For instance, the Atlanta Braves were winners of theNational League pennant last year, and that was a shock. So for the fans here in San Diego, their is hope that a group of misfits that resembles a minor league team could go somewhere this year. If not, it will be nothing new for Padres fans and the baseball world will continue to wonder why we are such laid-backed fans. Whatever happens good or bad this season it will be good to see the boys of summer back on the basepads and catching fly balls. Even if the fans of the Padres don't know who is on second and what's on third.

As last years men's volleyball team ended its season, Head coach Duncan McFarland realized coaching this year's team may be the toughest challenge of his career. McFarland's plight comes in matching last season's performance. The 1991 squad finished second in the regionals, losing to the eventual state-champion Orange Coast. As the season ended, however, so did a short era of great volleyball players. All six of his starters graduated, including two allconference players, outside hitter Rob Thomas and setter James Coney. Thomas now starts at San Diego State and Coney will be an assistant coach for McFarland. McFarland has not let the loss of six stars lower his expectations of this years team, however, with all the starting spots open for the taking, the players will have already gained some competitive experience before the season even starts . "This team has a lot of depth, which is creating some valuable competition for the starting spots," McFarland said. The coach is not only looking to put the best six individuals on the court, but he will be searching for a team that plays well together. With so many new faces on the team McFarland is looking for those who are ¡hungry and focused on surpassing the achievements of last year. This year's team, which can't rely on tremendous size, has impressed McFarland with the amount of
