Ron Stillwell said Wednesday that he will resign as baseball coach at Moorpark College effective at the end of the season. Stillwell, who has taught physical education at Thousand Oaks High for 25 years, is in his fifth season at Moorpark on a walk-on basis. Stillwell, whose team is 20-13 overall and 9-7 in Western State Conference play this season, said that he is resigning because maintaining the program without being on the Moorpark campus full time has its drawbacks. "It has been very difficult doing the job I would like to do as a walk-on coach," Stillwell said.

Budget cutbacks have forced Moorpark College to drop its men's tennis and golf programs for the 1992-93 school year, according to Floyd Thionnet, Moorpark's vice president of student and educational services. The programs, which have been intact since the school opened 25 years ago, were cut mainly because of the low number of students competing in those sports. Each program involves between five and seven players per team. The college's 14 other athletic programs will remain untouched.

The former editor of Moorpark College's student newspaper has been reprimanded by college officials for writing a column in which he jokingly invited the women's basketball team to join him at a local motel for the weekend. College officials have warned Robert E. Chaffin Jr. in a July 26 letter that he could be suspended, expelled or otherwise disciplined if he continues publishing "offensive expressions which interfere with the college's primary educational responsibility."

Standout guard Damian Wilson said Thursday that he will return for his sophomore season at Moorpark College even though, he says, he is eligible to matriculate to a four-year school and originally had planned to do so. "I was really ready to get on with it, to go on to a Division I school," Wilson said. "(But) I'm staying. No doubt about it." The 6-foot-2 Wilson averaged 21.3 points a game to lead Moorpark in scoring last season, and he drew recruiting interest from major colleges.

Ken Wagner, the baseball coach at Camarillo High for the past seven seasons, has been named to a similar position at Moorpark College, the school announced Tuesday. The Ventura County Community College Board of Trustees must approve the selection at its Tuesday meeting. If Wagner is approved, as expected, he will succeed Ron Stillwell, who resigned in May after five seasons as coach of the Raiders. Wagner, 43, compiled a 98-63-1 record and his teams won two Marmonte League titles at Camarillo.

History professor Daniel Patrick Brown hopes Moorpark College library's new, state-of-the-art, automated catalogue system will encourage students to work a little harder. For many college students, if researching a paper "is too much of a hassle, they will either procrastinate or not do it all," Brown said. But the $54,000 computerized catalogue that began operating this summer is designed to lessen the hassle, library Director Edward Tennen said.

Sitting in Adam James' restaurant, you'd never guess that Moorpark is a college town. Although Lamppost Pizza in downtown Moorpark lies just a few miles from Moorpark College, few of the school's 12,000 students eat there or at the other restaurants that line Los Angeles Avenue. "We don't get many students at all," James said. "They aren't coming down here."

The Conejo Valley may become the newest home for a county community college. Hoping to offer classes in the Thousand Oaks area, Moorpark College officials are in the early planning stages of creating a satellite campus, college President Jim Walker said. A new campus would help ease the student overcrowding that administrators are wrestling with in Moorpark, the county's largest community college, and lure new learners to the halls of academia.
