Louisiana College: Outgoing Vice President Tim Johnson Writes Letter Against President Aguillard

tim-johnsonThe tragic Whistleblower controversy at Louisiana College has centered around two Vice Presidents, Tim Johnson and Chuck Quarles, who filed a complaint against President Aguillard.

The Reader

“The Reader” by Guillaume Desachy

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of accompanying my wife, Pamela, on a photo walk in the Santa Cruz area. There were three parts to the walk. The first was in a redwood forest in the hills. Then, after lunch the group went to a beach and cliffs and stayed  to the evening for sunset shots. Finally, the group ended the evening with some street shooting in downtown Santa Cruz. In all, it was a good time. Since I am not a photographer, I spent my morning in the Redwoods a little differently.
