Trustees of the Saddleback Community College District board have approved a proposal to operate a Saturday open-air market on the Saddleback campus. The board voted unanimously in favor of the proposal Monday. The market, proposed by the Saddleback College Foundation as a means of raising money, would be operated by Outdoor Marketplaces Inc. in Parking Lot 10. With the board's approval, the proposal now goes to the city of Mission Viejo's Planning Commission for consideration.

Re "No Surrender in Civic War Over Base," March 4: According to the California Environmental Quality Act, the city of Tustin is required to comply with measures to mitigate all impacts on schools, housing, open space, commercial-industrial and cultural. It falls way short of any magnanimous gesture to relinquish a measly 20 acres out of the 1,600 acres. It might as well have offered 30 pieces of silver and a kiss of betrayal for revealing its true colors. It is embarrassing to even bring this issue forward again.

Robert A. Lombardi, chancellor of Saddleback Community College District, did not have to look far for somebody to serve as interim president of Irvine Valley College: He'll do the job himself. Lombardi, who is paid $145,000 a year, will assume the additional post April 1 with the departure of Daniel Larios, who is leaving to become president of Fresno City College in his hometown. Lombardi will not receive any extra compensation, district spokeswoman Diane Riopka said.

A proposal to redraw Saddleback Community College District trustee area boundaries has been met with mixed reaction. The seven-member board last September decided to redraw district boundaries to give residents more balance on the board, with each trustee representing roughly the name number of people. A plan unveiled Monday calls for the district's trustee areas to be divided almost equally by population. But Trustee Harriett S.

Shame on Richard Sneed, chancellor of Saddleback Community College! The college's newspaper, the Lariat, has received more than 100 journalism awards in the past four years. Despite this accomplishment, Sneed threatened to redirect their funds? The only thing more absurd than this is his motivation for doing so. In the Lariat's Dec. 7 edition, an article and cartoon was published in the opinion section that the college chancellor found offensive. Although the authors intended it to be an anti-nuclear article, many misinterpreted it to be anti-Semitic.

Orange County is a special place in the sun, a basic fact of our lives that has drawn many to this warm climate. But while the sun is so central to tourism, recreation and business location, the idea of the sun as an object of scientific study has not received quite so much attention. That is changing. The sun will get its due. Scientists and students at Saddleback Community College have gotten a morale boost with the decision to locate a new solar observatory at their math/science building.

As legal counsel who represented South Orange County Community College District in both lawsuits referenced in the Times' editorial Jan. 31, I would like to set the facts straight. The board acted in August 1997 on the selection of a college president upon advice from the previous chancellor who prepared the agenda and advised the board that it was in compliance with the Brown Act. A ruling from the judge that the board of trustees had to give more detailed notice of the personnel action was in fact "cured and corrected," but the Brown Act infraction ruling is under appeal.

In the not-too-distant future, medical students will practice life-saving emergency surgery procedures without worrying about losing the patient. This is the hope of Joanne Grey, who is writing a grant to develop such educational materials for the South Orange County Community College District's new Virtual Technology Education Center, known as V-TEC, at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo.

Joe Cesta came to Saddleback College looking for an identity. No matter how well he did in sports growing up, he was always following in the footsteps of his brothers, Tony and Mike. "People would always say, 'You're Mike Cesta's or Tony Cesta's little brother,' " Joe Cesta said. "I was never just Joe." Now, after two outstanding seasons at middle linebacker for Saddleback, Cesta has made a name for himself.

It's fitting that Bill Cunerty's office at Saddleback College sits between the two areas of the campus most important to him. First, there is the football field, where Cunerty is in his first year as head coach after 14 seasons as an assistant. His team won its final five games and finished first in the Mission Conference Central Division. Cunerty also has run the West Coast Passing School on the field each summer since 1982.

After a passionate plea from Saddleback Community College Vice President Everett Brewer, district trustees say they will consider hiring a consultant on multiethnic studies recommended by a panel of students, faculty and administrators. "If ever the college needed a consultant, it's on this issue," Brewer told trustees at their Monday board meeting. "We need a multiethnic studies program and, I believe, a department."

Looking like a miniature version of the mammoth swap meet long held at the Orange County Fairgrounds, the Saddleback Outdoor Market was praised by several people looking for Christmas gifts Saturday morning. "I love swap meets and I didn't like having to drive 30 miles to the nearest ones," said Estelle Rogers of Laguna Niguel while holding a bag of onion bagels and several brightly illustrated Christmas T-shirts. "They've got some really nice things here."
