Two letters, written almost six months apart by Golden West College President Wes Bryan, paint a different picture about an investigation into allegations of inappropriate behavior by a swim coach. In November, Bryan wrote a letter to the Huntington Beach-based Golden West Swim Club's board of directors, describing how an “extensive” outside investigation cleared the club's swim coach, William Jewell, of charges of inappropriate conduct. The allegations had been made by former swim team employee Dia Rianda in an unlawful-termination suit filed against Jewell's boss, Mark Schubert.

Golden West Swim Club said it has found nothing to support allegations of inappropriate behavior by assistant swim coach William Jewell or evidence of wrongdoing by his boss, famed former Olympic swim coach Mark Schubert, according to a letter from the club's president. The organization hired an outside firm to conduct an investigation after former swim team employee Dia Rianda sued Schubert for wrongful termination in September, alleging Schubert ignored complaints she made regarding sexually inappropriate behavior displayed by Jewell.

Re "Community College Spending Is Uneven," Dec. 21: Alan Remington insinuates that Coastline Community College is the reason that Orange Coast College had to cut "more than 400 sections" from its fall schedule. In fact, it was state budget shortfalls that have forced creative faculty, staff and administrators at the three Coast Community College District colleges (including Golden West College) to find ways to make serious cuts in their staffing, programs or offerings, and still offer excellent educational programs at a very reasonable cost to their students.

The Coast Community College District colleges--Coastline Community College, Golden West College and Orange Coast College--provide access to higher education for over 55,000 Orange County students each semester and already are funded at around $2,000 less per student than the national average.
