Re "College District Seeks Bonds, Another Might," July 31: Please support the funding measures asked by Rancho Santiago and Coast Community College districts. I have studied at four campuses to meet state requirements to get a teaching credential. After 30 years in the business world, all I remembered was a '60s expression, "High school with ashtrays." What I found was far different. I found dedicated and inspiring educators. I found students of all ages who are learning for the sake of knowledge and studying to improve their futures.

Saying he was forced out, Trustee Charles W. "Pete" Maddox resigned Monday from the Rancho Santiago Community College District board. The resignation is effective Dec. 15, the day he will move one mile east of his home to another home outside District Area 2, which he represents. The majority of his colleagues on the board had refused to change the district's boundaries so he could keep his seat. Earlier this year, Maddox, 49, proposed turning his seat into an at-large post.
