Trustee James T. (Tom) Ely testified Monday that travel expenses prosecutors say he and his wife owe the Ventura County Community College District are largely offset by money the district owes him for mileage. Ely said that according to his calculations, he owes the district $684 for three trips that he and his wife, Ingrid, took during 1989 at district expense, while the district owes him $544 for the miles that he drove on business.

Dissatisfied with its short list of candidates, Ventura County Community College trustees plan to appoint an interim chancellor for another year while continuing their search for a permanent leader for the cash-strapped district. None of the nearly 30 candidates reviewed seemed quite right to lead the 35,000-student district out of its struggles, trustee Mary Anne Rooney said Wednesday.

I read with interest Moorpark College speech instructor Charlene Arnold's letter to The Times (Dec. 28). She poses a number of questions and comments on an article appearing in The Times on Dec. 14. I serve as an elected trustee of the Ventura County Community College District. I was elected by the taxpaying citizens of the greater Conejo Valley to represent and protect their interests. I am sworn to uphold the financial integrity of our college district. Doing any less would certainly be a betrayal of the trust given me by my constituents.

Ventura County's high school graduates are less likely to enroll in California's four-year public colleges and universities than their counterparts across the state, records show. The same records indicate that the county's high school graduates enroll in two-year state colleges in slightly above-average numbers. But in overall public postsecondary enrollment, Ventura County lags behind the state at large.
