Del Mar College Double Standards - "Where Dreams become Nightmares"

dubble - 07:22pm Aug 27, 2005 Central

After reading many postings on this website for the past several months, I have decided to post concerning the topic of Del Mar Administrators and the way they continually use the systems to bypass addressing the real problems. When Del Mar College officials make the entire process of a grieving for student an ordeal within itself then something is definately wrong. When Del Mar College Attorney tries to downplay the instances which are reported and mis-inform the public or slant the facts in a way that makes Del Mar College look like they are "investigating" and "looking into" all reports of incorrect conduct, that is WRONG. Del Mar College has the accused, the attorneys, the investigators, and the eeoc representaves all eating lunch together. We have the people being investigated broadcasting the accusers name accross campus until other students come to Mr. Acussed rescue. We have witnesses, recordings, and transcripts which were excluded because they were not a "fit" for the Del Mar Administration's agenda. We have board rules which were not followed but yet no dicipline action was taken. NO Authority, No punishment, No Protection of Students, No Protection of Other faculty. IT ISN"T WRIGHT!

I Am Whom I Am - 07:27pm Aug 27, 2005 Central (#1 of 37) No it isn't, obviously the usual is occuring, make the accusers look incompetent so not enough people that even hear about such will take them seriously.. I would take a step back and regroup if I were them and define anothe method to ensure justice is served.

dubble - 07:32pm Aug 27, 2005 Central

(#2 of 37) Ok - you are who you are - IT ISN"T RIGHT! Intimidation, lack of action and denial. What we have here is a faculty who will never convict one of their own. Famous Quote: "I have tenure, I will never be fired from Del Mar College." Oh yeah - Mr. Acussed might also have alztheimers disease. I invite Ms. Icess Fernandez to ask any appropriate questions to get "the rest of the story." You sound like you may be part of the conspiracy. Oh yeah. One more thing. If the Del Mar College would just acknowledge the wrong that was done and appologize the issue would be settled. You are correct, the usual is being done. The guilty are moving behind the seens, changing grades, giving scholarships, hiring and sponsoring other students to protect themselves. Great news that you can see right through it. Ok Popeye!

Hey Elwood, maybe you should do a little more research before you start trying to make assumptions. Anyhow - Mr. Blues maybe you could take a deep breath and digest a few truths that hurt a little. Swallow your pride and assume nothing. Don't give me the benefit of any doubt and don't trust anything I say. Please do your own research for your own agenda. And please don't address me and say that I am somebody else - I am not Jaime. I am not Jaime's wife. I am not you either. So - Please just reply to the content. If you can stick to the issues (unless you have an attention problem) please respond with facts as you know them. Maybe you try to read what people are saying instead of being an English teacher. I have no problem with somebody correcting my grammar or spelling, however those are small issues. The real issues in this situation are much more important than the mis-spelling of a few words.

Joe Fulton and all his cronies contributed monetarily to the holier than thou Chris Adler campaign

Don't Have To Get Physical To Be Someone's "Ho"

-
Them good old boys are at it again. The Del Mar board, after accepting bids, awarded a $26.5 million contract to Bartlett Cocke General Contractors and B. E. Beecroft Construction. Joe Fulton wasn't happy. It didn't matter that his bid was $600,000 higher than Bartlett & Beecroft. In this town, he's entitled to all the large contracts. How dare Del Mar award such a large contract to someone other than the almighty Joe Fulton.
HE WASN'T GOING TO BE DENIED.

He devised a dastardly plan. Joe needed one more vote to undo the deal and to grab what was rightly his. The college intentionally dragged its feet in getting the contract signed so that the plan could be successfully implemented. The President of the school balked, but Joe took care of that "effeminate son-of-bitch."
Joe recruited Chris Adler, an at-large board member, to switch and run against Dorothy Spann in the single member district race. Dorothy became a target because she refused to bow to the almighty boss and undo the contract. Although the President objected, Joe got the college to conveniently stall the signing of the contract until after the election. Well, sure enough, money in this town talks. Joe Fulton and all his cronies contributed monetarily to the holier than thou Chris Adler campaign and Dorothy Spann was history. The rest was so Corpus Christi predictable. With a new "Ho" in his back pocket, the matter was re-visited and brought to a vote. And........... Well............ You know the ending. We are now paying $600,000 more for the project, an old "Ho" is re-born (again, again and again), Dorothy Spann retains her dignity in quiet solitude, the Del Mar president, who wouldn't play games with the BOYS, was booted and the pimp just keeps getting richer. But, again, that's Corpus.

I'D LIKED TO SEE YOU PUBLISH THIS

This is the best BOARD OF REGENTS Del Mar has ever had. You know nothing about what goes on being on the board. These REGENTS spend so much time trying to better the College for the students. Have you taken the time to drive by Del Mar to see the construction going on? THAT IS FOR THE STUDENTS. Have you gone by Delmar on Airport Rd & seen the construction there? The addition of classrooms & parking ALL FOR THE STUDENTS. THE BOARD OF REGENTS SAW TO THIS? The only compensation they receive is the accomplishment at the end. AND THEN THERE IS YOU. A CLUELESS MORON with no consideration who he bashes for a quick thrill. Now tell us, we are all listening, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? No wonder you remain anonymous! GET A LIFE.






Here is some more of the CRAP going on at Del Mar

Mr. kenedeno, my 17 year old daughter has told me that Gabe Rivas made a dirty advance toward her while she was in the del mar parking lot. I have went to the college president and he laughed at me. My daughter has dropped out of school as a result of this. What should we do? Witnesses were present. Please help

5:07 AM


As I understand from insiders close to the Sexual Harrassment Civil Rights allegations at Del Mar College, Theresa Cox is on administrative leave under the whistleblowers act. Her position or imposition has placed her at odds with administration, Board of Regents Officials and the President of the University Carlos Garcia. Rumblings from the Board of Regents suggest a turmoil from within this elite group. Sources suggest a resignation of Bill Chriss is forthcoming as he is pursuing a teaching position at the University of Texas. Although he cites his reason for stepping down as the UT Teaching position one must question the motives and ask why now Bill? As I understand, Mr Chriss has held this UT position for some time which IMO exclaims Mr Chriss does not want any part of the corruption and is dissociating himself from the Elite Del Mar Board of Regents. I would like to think his public service will continue. Perhaps a de-throning of one of our elitist County Commisioners such as Cazalas (who even mainstream republicans loathe)? As the rumblings begin to spill out of the Board Room it should be noted that the name Jacob Munoz (a convenient token) is the Del Mar Board of Regents' most notable man for the JOB. I must ask the average citizen to think back and ask themselves WATT has Jacob Munoz done for the average citizen. WATT has he done for the hispanic community?


Now back to Carlos Garcia; I know his position is to defend the institution of higher learning and I know of his scoffing, condescending and demeaning acts of playing dumb. This is insignifigant when compared to the aggressive campaigns directed at the victims who meet with him in the privacy of his office. Mr Garcia, it is not a student's fault that you or your faculty is "going through a mid life crisis". It is not the right of faculty or Board members to use the student body as a harem from which to choose companionship; but quite the contrary.


On to the GSA and the MONEY. WATT did Donna Strong do to censor the article revealing Carlos Garcia and the misappropriation of club money?

Itis only a matter of time before it all catches up to you and your kind at Del Mar Mr Garcia.

You too Mr Rivas!

These young girls dont want you or your viagra.

    The Student Government Account has been missing funds for years now. Everytime some students try to speak up, they are either suspended or kicked out of school without any dueprocess. Its too bad that our tax dollars will be paying for all the settlements that the board has agreed to thus far.

    The problem is, what are we as tax payers and the whole community going to do about the "AXIS OF EVIL" del mar, Gabe Rivas, Carlos Garcia, and Ben Blanco?

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is when good catholics and christians stand by and do nothing.

    Whatever happened to the case of when a professor was shot and then he was fired as a result of being shot.

    There is only one thing we can do, Demand that all the pharmacies STOP selling viagra. Maybe then these animals in heat will leave the female students alone.

    Question,

    Wasn't Tina Butler fired from del mar because she filed a grivance against a axis of evil member for calling her the (N) word?

    What about Howard Karsh who was also disriminated against and also fired?

    What about Gaylord Hoyt? He noticed that funds were missing, after he called them thiefs, he was also forced to leave.

    Too many probelms brings too many lawsuits.

    I would like to thank the owner of this blog because at least someone is letting these issues be known.

    "We have intelligent people that know the right words to say to get attention," he said of those who have complained.

    By icess fernandez Caller-Times
    August 11, 2005

    Within eight months, six complaints of discrimi nation were filed against Del Mar College through the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights. An additional complaint, filed July 6, is still pending.

    College officials said they had only heard of one such complaint filed previously with the agency in recent memory.

    The complaints allege discrimination by the college on the basis of color, race and sex, according to federal documents, and could eventually cost the college $17.9 million.

    Members of the Office of Civil Rights have visited the college at least three times in recent months to conduct investigations into the complaints. Copies of employment files, student records, policies of student groups, and grievance and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) procedures were reviewed. And college employees, including faculty and staff members, as well as students and former students, were interviewed, according to college officials.

    Del Mar College President Carlos A. Garcia said the discrimination alleged by the complainants is not true.

    "We have intelligent people that know the right words to say to get attention," he said of those who have complained.
    Mike Westergren, the college's in-house counsel in charge of overseeing the college's complaint procedures, said that the complainants are abusing the system and are missing the bigger picture.
    Rules necessary
    "People are using this to undermine the mission of the college. It's a serious thing to say but it's true," Westergren said. "We educate kids, and in order to do that we have to set rules."
    Representatives from the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights would not comment on the cases but said that if they find a violation of federal law, a letter of resolution would be sent to the college. The letter would detail how the college was non-compliant with federal laws and would include a plan of action on how to fix the violations.
    The college then would enter into an action plan with the federal agency and would be monitored for two years. Monitoring could include regular visits from the office of civil rights to the college, and deadlines to implement parts of the action plan as well as reports submitted to the agency.
    Should the college decide not to enter into an agreement, another letter would be sent to the college which would include a time limit on the settlement process and the consequence of failure to reach a settlement. If there is still no agreement, the office of civil rights could initiate a process to suspend, terminate or refuse funds given to the college by the Department of Education. The office of civil rights also could refer the cases to the Department of Justice for judicial proceedings, or establish a team to prosecute the college.
    complaints incomplete
    Del Mar College received $17.9 million last year in federal funding from the Department of Education. The majority of the money goes toward student financial aid, including some scholarships, Pell grants, and loans, which are funded by the department. The department also funds federal programs such as the college's TRIO program, which helps retain and recruit first-generation and minority students. Almost 50 percent of Del Mar's students receive financial aid, according to the college.
    Westergren said none of the complainants completed the grievance or EEOC process through the college before filing another one through the office of civil rights.
    "When people don't like the outcome, they go somewhere else for a different outcome," he said. "If for just a moment what they were saying in these complaints were true, I won't work here."
    According to the complaint documents, the majority - five out of six complainants - either started the process but did not continue because of college policy, or weren't allowed to start the process altogether. The sixth feared retaliation, the complaint said.
    One of those who filed a complaint with the college, according to federal documents, was barred from entering a building on campus. The student was expelled one week before the initial visit of the federal agency on campus. According to college policy at the time, if a student no longer attends the college, any grievance or complaint filed through the college is dropped.
    Another complainant, who isn't a faculty, staff member or student at the college but someone who has used the facilities at the college, filed a complaint through the college's human resources department and felt he was retaliated against because he did so, according to federal documents. After the alleged retaliation, which he said included additional charges to use the college's facilities, the person filed a complaint through the Department of Education.
    30-day evaluation
    It takes about 30 days for the office of civil rights to evaluate a complaint before deciding to take action. Once the federal agency starts to investigate, it could take up to six months to come to a decision. The first of the six complaints were filed in September 2004 and the cases remain open.
    Del Mar College employees were told of the situation in a July 21, 2005, memo sent by Garcia. The memo said the college supported the federal agency's efforts and that during their visit, students and employees would be interviewed.
    The memo also states that:
    "Del Mar College does not and will not tolerate intimidation, threats, coercion or discrimination against any individual for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured by regulations enforced by OCR or because one has proceedings or hearing held in conjunction with a complaint."
    All six complainants feared retaliation or detailed a form of retaliation in their complaints because they've complained before going to the federal agency.
    Westergren said the college's complaint processes are adequate, but should the federal government recommend policy changes, the college would take them into consideration.

    Regents OK Del Mar's legislative goals

    One proposal: Align college taxing district and its service area

    By adriana garza Caller-Times
    June 14, 2006


    Though the 80th Texas Legislature still is six months away, Del Mar College officials aren't wasting any time setting goals for the session.

    At Tuesday's Board of Regents Meeting, regents approved the college's legislative priorities for next year. Chief among them is a proposal that would align community college taxing districts with the geographical areas they service.

    Del Mar College taxes the five school districts within the Corpus Christi area.

    Students who do not live in the Corpus Christi, Flour Bluff, Tuloso-Midway, Calallen and West Oso school districts pay more than twice as much in tuition and fees as in-district students.

    Only three community colleges in the state tax their entire service area, including South Texas Community College in the Valley.

    If the measure passes, Del Mar College would tax the counties it serves and all students would pay the same amount in tuition and fees.

    Del Mar College also will support a recommendation to provide full formula funding for community colleges.

    Formula funding is based on the number of contact hours a community college provides. A contact hour is defined as one hour of instruction per student.

    But typically, community colleges have not received full formula funding from the Legislature.

    For example, during the 2004-2005 school year, Del Mar College delivered $48.7 million in student credit hours but the Legislature funded only $37.2 million, a shortfall of $11.5 million.

    The college was forced to recoup those costs by raising taxes, increasing tuition and fees and closely monitoring spending.

    Del Mar College President Carlos Garcia said that with full formula funding, the college could receive as much as $10 million a year more to its budget.

    "This would be a considerable increase in our budget," he said.

    The college also is encouraging the Legislature to fully fund community and technical college employee benefits. In previous years, the Legislature has cut back on the funding it provides for insurance and retirement benefits for some employees.

    At Del Mar College, groundskeepers and maintenance personnel were affected by the change. However, the college made up the difference out of its own budget.

    Any more cuts to benefits at the state level would be devastating for the college, officials said.

    Garcia said he is optimistic about the coming legislative session. With major issues such as school finance settled, he said the chances to secure additional state funding are better than ever.

    "Our time has finally come," he said.

    The next step for the college will be to meet with local legislators, city and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi officials to strategize about how best to approach the legislative session.

    Dear Mike Westergren, I extend my hand out (in the interest of peace & resolution) to the Del Mar Administration, Faculty, Staff & Board of Regents.

    "Dear Mr. Kenedeno, What happened? I was at Altenos from about 6:45 to 7:20. Can we try again? Btw I have no problem with the idea of third party assistance in combating sexual harassment although dispite what you have been saying on your blogs, we have a very serious sexual harassment prevetion program at Del Mar. I invite you to view our very strong policy a portion of which is contained in the attachment. To view the entire policy go to http://www.delmar.edu/policymanual/index.html and click on chapter 5 and go to B5.11.

    Look forward to meeting with you in the near future.

    Yours very truly,


    Mike Westergren"

    (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((( )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

    Dear Mr Westergren,

    I extend my hand out (in the interest of peace & resolution) to the Del Mar Administration, Faculty, Staff & Board of Regents. I did not meet with you this morning. I apologize for the inconvenience. My inattendance was not out of my own doing; but simply due to a most precarious influence and a spirit, unified not of my own creation. The spirit is beginning to flow through the veins once again at Del Mar. We have a whole lot of HOUSECLEANING issues to deal with in this progression.

    Now that we have your attention; I know we will keep it.

    Mr Westergren, can you please offer in example; to what are you specifically referring in the following?

    "Btw I have no problem with the idea of third party assistance in combating sexual harassment although dispite what you have been saying on your blogs"

    Show us where I have made a mistake. Precision & accuracy preserves the integrity of everything we write. If we have made inaccurate aggressions we need to know.

    I will address two issues. Both enable sexual harrassment and corruption.

    1) Del Mar hierarchy thwarts Due Process. Del Mar hierarchy officially ignores, while discussing behind closed doors, how to be rid of the problem? Instead, of how to remedy the problem. That is evident in the Gabe Rivas Deposition. The Board of Regents "dont micro manage" excuse is horse sh/t. That confidentiality arguement is horse sh/t as well.

    2) There is a double standard. What is good for the goose will be the same for the gander.


    Mr Westergren has covered you guys a$$ way too long.

    The contract manipulation quid pro quo or lowballin whatever it may entail, I will follow the money.

    We practice due diligence!

    "Engaging the average citizen in the formulation of Public Policy" is our mission @ Kenedeno & Associates. "The Net is a powerful force for change -- and a dynamic tool for citizen education and action.

    I think these guys are going to learn a lesson or two....

    from the attorney general down. The Secretary of State cleared Ms Garcia to run. If you read the AG opinion you will know what a crook this guy is when it comes to the little people. Carlos Valdez, I cant see how he would obtain Jurisdiction given there is no criminal act. This matter should be processed through existing administrative law.




    A Voter Registration in Kleberg While Residing in Nueces?

    The question is, which home was her domicile. I have been to her Apartment here in Corpus Christi, it sure looks like it is her primary residence.

    I cannot imagine Carlos Valdez even having anything to do with this case, given his history with Mike Westergren and I am told with Joe Alaniz as well.

    If Carlos Valdez prosecutes this lady, he is a fool.

    I stand behind her.
