My letter is in regard to the economic situation in which I find myself and many young Americans my age. I am a 22-year-old Moorpark College student. Part of the reason I chose to attend a junior college is because I could not afford to pay for my general education at a four-year university. I am at this time still living at home. This is a big problem for many young adults who find themselves unable to attain higher education and want to leave the house and lead a life of their own. My parents often tell me that at my age they had been married a year and had a child (and)

Nobel prizes in science often go to researchers of an advanced age -- many are retired by the time the call comes from Oslo saying they've won. Fred Kavli, a Norwegian immigrant who got rich from a business he founded in Van Nuys making electronic sensors used in aviation and other fields, started giving out his own awards in 2008. But his prizes -- accompanied by a scroll, medal and $1 million -- were designed to go to younger researchers. And like the $100 million Kavli had already earmarked for universities, the prizes were designed to further basic research that examines scientific mysteries without a specific goal.

Moorpark College will resume offering classes at Oak Park High School near Agoura after a five-year hiatus, college officials said Monday. Booming growth in eastern Ventura County, particularly in the Oak Park area east of Thousand Oaks, and an increased interest among residents in taking college-credit courses led officials at the two-year college to resume the program, said college spokesman Gerry Olsen.

Re "Conservatives need not apply," Opinion, May 19 Economist Kevin Hassett laments the scarcity of conservatives giving graduation speeches. He even claims that "a primary objective of today's academic institutions … is not to educate students but rather to educate reliable Democratic votes. " He doesn't give our college students credit for intelligence. As an adjunct professor of biology at Moorpark College, I praise my students (nearly half of whom have "undecided or undeclared" listed for their majors)

As Jon Foote walked through the tidy grounds of Moorpark College, one student after another called out his name. To one, he offered directions to a new classroom; to the next, suggestions on an essay about faith; to another, a high-five on a calculus test score. He is 33 years old, not so unusual at a community college - "my only chance," as he puts it, "at a second chance. " Foote arrived at Moorpark determined to show his gratitude by investing in campus life and the school's 14,500 students.

Dozens of Moorpark College secretaries and custodians took simultaneous breaks from their duties Tuesday morning to protest the yearlong stalemate in contract negotiations. About 30 of the college's 160 classified employees held a "unity break" outside the administration office for about 15 minutes Tuesday in an attempt to spur college officials to offer them more money.

Steve Spence knew he was done for when he took the trash out — barefoot — to the curb of his Moorpark home Sunday night. He looked down, and on his foot was a furry bat with black wings. It was exactly like the hundreds that migrate to his neighborhood, and especially his house, every spring and leave every August. He shook the bat off. Then Spence, 54, looked closer, and on his foot was a red bite mark. "I immediately thought 'I'm screwed,'" said Spence, a case manager for a nonprofit that serves the homeless and mentally ill. The bat was rabid and had infected Spence.

For Moorpark's seasoned fire veterans Wednesday, the latest major brush fire to threaten ranches and subdivisions -- even a small zoo -- was almost taken in stride. Everyone knew what to do. On Griffith Lane, just a few mountain ridges away from the fire's front line, Verna Murrell and Kevin Kiely already had suitcases packed and their most important photographs and documents on a digital file. At nearby Moorpark College, students enrolled in a zoo management program spent the morning putting several of 135 animals in their small campus zoo into crates, ready to move them out at a moment's notice.
