Charles Unger Have you been following the sexual harassment case out of Las Vegas? In this matter, the Supreme Court of the United States decided in April that it takes more than one inappropriate remark to trigger a sexual harassment lawsuit. A Las Vegas school official brought suit, claiming she was demoted after filing a complaint against her supervisor for making an inappropriate comment to her. The justices threw out her claim, indicating that sexual harassment is "a pattern of severe or pervasive abuse, not a mere offense or utterance."

In response to the letter to the editor written by Trent Sanders, “ GCC ought to dispense with its empires ,” Sept. 19, I would like to point out that having a campus police force is a must. The world today, versus back in 1959 when Trent Sanders went to GCC, has changed a lot and has gotten more violent. Nobody can ever foresee a tragedy, calamity or an accident. That is why prevention is always the key. We know that the city police are always ready to help, but in a situation that needs an immediate action, having a department that is solely dedicated to help is a lot better than waiting for rescue.

It’s part of our “Welcome Back” day that we spend without students, preparing for the year ahead and being reminded to watch our p’s and q’s. The literature we get repeats the same message from the previous year and has us all signing on the dotted line that we understand what constitutes sexual harassment in the workplace.
