In exchange, the college pledged to pay the fees for every one of those students who enrolled at RCC.

Below the Harbor Freeway in the homeless encampment known as Dome Village, residents have spent the past days gathering around televisions. They don't want to miss a moment of Joanna Hayes competing in the Athens Olympics. "'People would walk around yelling, 'Joanna is running! Joanna is running!' when she was on television," said Graham Foster, 49. The petite Hayes, 27, is the daughter of Dome Village's founder, homeless activist Ted Hayes.
