Officials at Santa Rosa Junior College say they may have to lay off a dozen employees in order to balance the 2004-05 budget. The school faces a deficit of $5.2 million, college officials said.

California's community college chancellor appointed a special trustee Monday to try to resolve financial and governance problems that threaten to shut City College of San Francisco, one of the nation's largest two-year institutions. Special trustee Robert Agrella will effectively replace the school's elected governing board, giving him extraordinary power to correct problems identified by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, a private, nonprofit regional agency recognized by the federal government.

It is quite simple to save on the increased costs of a college or university of education. I suggest to the many concerned parents that they first send their children to a junior college. After all, California is well known throughout the United States for its very efficient and inexpensive junior college system. From Santa Rosa Junior College in the north to San Diego Community College in the south, we in this state are extremely fortunate to have such a wonderfully run system of education.

If I were to run into Eduardo Munoz ("New World Order," by Jill Leovy, Feb. 7), I'd want to pat him on the back, give him a hug or shake his hand and thank him for what he is doing to inspire junior college students such as Luis Hernandez. Munoz reminds me of some dedicated instructors I studied with years ago at Santa Rosa Junior College. I nearly flunked out of high school, and without the genuine interest those instructors took in me and the tools they gave me to excel academically, I'd never have been able to earn a four-year college degree.
