I was both appalled and amused to read in your excellent Nov. 2 story concerning the Saddleback College newspaper a quote from the current newspaper advisor that I "ran the paper with a lot of negativity." One would think that after having been at the Lariat for more than a few weeks, Lee Walker would have realized that advisors don't "run" newspapers. My philosophy in two years of advising the Lariat was that the newspaper served both as the voice of responsible journalism for students at the college and as an open forum of commentary for the Saddleback College community.

The 20 square miles of Gravensteins that once covered the local hills are now reduced to one, and the remaining trees also would have succumbed to chain saws were it not for the matchless flavor of their fruits and the determination of a small band of farmers and preservationists.
