Mike Shaughnessy is about to start his fourth year as Golden West College's football coach, a position he never sought. It took a series of unique events to put Shaughnessy in charge of the Rustler program. "I'm doing the job because I want to help the players have some success," Shaughnessy said. "I'm not trying to advance [to the four-year level]. I'm hoping I can make them realize the importance of an education and what that can do for them. That's a challenge these days."

Arnie Futagaki was the kind of football player coaches dream about. His size--he weighed only about 180 pounds--took people off guard, especially when they learned (the hard way) how strong and tough he was. He was a quiet leader for Golden West College's first football team in 1966, never boisterous or arrogant but determined. And, better yet, Futagaki had a positive attitude that rubbed off on other players, including his opponents.

People should be pleased--but not surprised--by the recent scientific reports indicating that pesticides are not a major cause of the problems of the Salton Sea (May 23). Environmentalists, farmers and public agency officials have all known for some time that the real problems of the sea lie elsewhere. The cause of the sea's excessive (and occasionally toxic) algal growth is the fertilizer contained in agricultural runoff. Fortunately, farmers are working responsibly with the Regional Water Quality Control Board to develop a program of TMDLs (total maximum daily loads)

Howard T. Mango says he thought he was being a theatrical entrepreneur, not a philanthropist, when he helped launch the Pacific Coast Civic Light Opera, based at Golden West College. Now Mango, a Newport Beach audiologist, has sued the musical-theater company and its executive director, Golden West dean David F. Anthony, for allegedly defrauding him of his investment and of his rights as an owner. Mango has acted in musicals on the local community theater scene for nearly 25 years.

Peter Janov had seen the results of his son's efforts at getting a water polo scholarship to a university in the United States--actually, he hadn't seen the results because there weren't any--so he wasn't too keen on this new idea of contacting California community colleges. "I wrote to 130 universities," the younger Peter Janov said, "It cost about $500 just to send all the letters. Some coaches wrote back and said they don't take international players. Some didn't write back at all.
