Mount Hood Community College may be the focus of state investigation. Secretary of State Kate Brown will decide by the end of the week whether to launch an official investigation of Mt. Hood Community College. The Oregonian reports that Brown won't disclose the possible focus of the investigation. It has to do with allegations made last week when Ralph Yates, a 13-year member of the College's Board announced his resignation. He says it has to do with faculty and administration, but he wouldn't elaborate. He says other frustrated Board members quit for the same reasons in the past.
