The attorney for a former Mission College finance department worker charged Tuesday that the then-president of the school, Lowell Erickson, illegally failed to report that a college employee performed work for Erickson for free. The attorney said that James Austin, vice president of administration, compiled district financial and attendance data in 1988 for Erickson, Mission's acting president at the time. The attorney, Dale Gronemeier, said Austin received no compensation for his work.

In the late 1980s when officials were looking for someone to lead Pierce College, Mary Lee, president of Valley College, was named to the search committee. But she ended up quitting the panel to take a run at the job herself. "As I drove around Pierce, I decided there is no one who can do what needs to be done out there other than me," Lee recalled. College district officials, though, had other ideas and picked another administrator for Pierce, leaving Lee at Valley College in Van Nuys.

As Valley Life of Sept. 18 pointed out, 55% of the faculty at Valley and Pierce Junior colleges are part time. At College of the Canyons, the figure is closer to 80%. If, as Pierce President Lowell Erickson says, the new Wilson budget leaves Pierce only enough for salaries, then convert the remaining 45% of faculty to part-time pay, reducing the salary from $48,000 to $19,000 per instructor, and cancel all benefits. Then the college can meet its budget without layoffs.

The long-awaited Pierce College master plan will contain proposals for development on unused portions of the 400-acre campus in Woodland Hills, college President Lowell Erickson said Tuesday.
