Hangin' With Tamar
Readers here will recognize the name, Tamar Goldmann, from several previous entries. I've mentioned her in the context of her tenacious, yet cordial, comments presented to the Costa Mesa City Council.
COURTEOUS AND RESPECTFUL
I first noticed Tamar as she spoke to the council a few years ago. She approached the speaker's podium almost as though she was trying to sneak up on it and, once there, she quietly, respectfully - almost timidly - said her piece and stepped away. She made me smile.
Since that time events have caused her to become more assertive. It's clear from her comments over the past recent months that she is less patient with this particular council, although never disrespectful. Those of us who follow the antics of the male majority on the council can certainly understand why she - or anyone else - might be losing patience with them.
RECOGNIZED BY HER PEERS
Well, recently Tamar Goldmann - a long-time educator at Orange Coast College - was presented with OCCs Hanging of the Orange award, bestowed upon faculty and staff members who have gone "above and beyond" their regular duties on campus. You can read all about it HERE. She's shown here receiving the award from Doug Bennett, Executive Director of the Orange Coast College Foundation
Congratulations to Tamar, and to her patient husband, Dan. I'm proud to know you...
