I was delighted to see "Retiring to the Homes of the Young" (March 29). I live in the new city of Laguna Woods in Leisure World, where the "leisure" is a misnomer, because I have yet to find any leisure in the community. For the more than 18 years that I have lived here, residents from 55 to over 90 are so busy taking emeritus classes here on our own grounds conducted by Saddleback College, and at the college campus, that they barely have time for playing golf, tennis, swimming and all the other hundreds of activities.
OPINION

Re "Campus Free-Speech Tests," editorial, April 1: The Times is correct to be offended by professors who "force their opinions down a captive audience's throat," although it has cited no evidence that any Irvine Valley College professor does that. It fails to perceive, however, that Vice President Dennis White's recent memo is not directed specifically at such opining; rather, it is directed generally at classroom discussions of the current war. According to White's memo, an instructor may discuss the war only if he or she first "satisfies" White that the discussion is "directly related to the approved instructional requirements."

Re "College Proposes Soaring Venture," June 15: If administrators at Irvine Valley College do for the hotel and theater business what they've done for public education, count on poor service and bad reviews. Having nearly destroyed what once was the finest community college in the state, they plan to sell off what's left. Taxpayers have a right to be confused about the latest shenanigans at IVC. What's more alarming, a loose cannon dean who thinks he's Conrad Hilton or a board of trustees that doesn't seem to know a thing about his grandiose scheme?

The keys to success are the same in athletics and forensics--smart recruiting and good coaching. On the baseball diamond, football field or basketball court, community colleges are no match for such storied four-year institutions as Notre Dame and USC. But in forensics, it's quite a different story. Coaches aren't looking for the biggest or strongest or the fastest. They want the brightest, most motivated and most effective communicators.
