Patton Dismissal Contested

Jul 25 2016

In the most recent issue of Lacrosse Magazine, a letter signed by "The Current Dartmouth Women's Lacrosse Team" was published:

Lacrosse Women's Letter.jpg

Given that there is at least one whistleblower on the team who took issue with Coach Patton's behavior, the reader must question whether all of the members of the team signed the letter.

The article accompanying the letter included the following quote:

"We feel that the report released by Dartmouth was not representative of our voices as players regarding our experiences with and respect for Amy," Blake Hamblett ['17], a senior defender for the Big Green, wrote in an email to Lacrosse Magazine.

I wrote to Blake to see if she has obtained the "report" on Coach Patton that led to her dismissal. Nothing has been circulated by the Athletics department; to do so would be a violation of Patton's legal right to privacy. Blake responded promptly that she had not seen the College's investigatory report; she was referring only to the press release issued by the Athletics department.

Sources indicate that the department's investigation into Amy Patton's behavior was the first of its kind in memory. The fact that the investigation took place at all, and that the conclusion was so decisive -- dismissing Patton virtually on the spot -- leads one to believe that its findings were corroborated by multiple team members and its implications were clear cut.

Athletics Director Harry Sheehy is not a political guy, but in this instance he had the option of discretely offering Patton one last season before she "moved on to a new opportunity" or fĂȘting her "retirement" from Dartmouth -- actions that might have been possible had the investigation not uncovered serious misbehavior. Apparently easing the 26-year-veteran College coach out the door with a graceful, final-lap exit was not an option.

In addition, the Athletics department's announcement of Patton's departure was unusually direct, as if to communicate to observers in the lacrosse world that she is not a coach that another school would want to hire.

The "Current Dartmouth Women's Lacrosse Team" letter published in Lacrosse Magazine defending Patton and the fact that some of the players are being investigated by the Town of Hanover Police may indicate something of the atmosphere inside the program (Psych 1 students will recognize the idea of identification with the oppressor). No doubt such an environment makes it difficult for the whistleblower to remain active with the team. We can only applaud her courage.

There has been no indication that Patton is contemplating litigation.

Hark! An Artist Lurks

Jul 24 2016

We can agree that it must be tough to stencil bicycle-lane symbols onto the pavement all the livelong day. So what's a civil servant with the soul of an artist to do when there's a little spare paint on hand to add to the stencils that must be placed every few yards? Here's what: Image #1 displays the standard bike lane stencil as ordained by the Town of Hanover Public Works Department: unisex, schematic and humorless; Image #2, au contraire, appears to depict a cyclist sporting an English bowler; Image #3 shows a visiting Mexican in a sombrero; and Image #4 has the rider in a headdress, possibly Native American?

Bravo. I rarely fail to smile as I pedal by.

Addendum: Needless to say, I could not possibly divulge the location in Hanover of this burst of creativity for fear that the forces of orderliness might intervene.

Diversity in Action: Harmeet Dhillon '89

Jul 23 2016

Harmeet Dhillon1.jpgFor some reason the College Communications Office's new organ, the Dartmouth News, did not report on the fact that Harmeet Dhillon '89 delivered the invocation on the second day of the Republican convention. She sang her prayer in Punjabi and then translated it into English. Among her thoughts:

Please give us the courage to make the right choices, to make common cause with those with whom we disagree, for the greater good of our nation.

At the College, where she majored in Classics, Dhillon was Editor-in-Chief of the Review, and after graduation she went to law school at UVA. She has been active in Republican politics (she was head of the nation's largest Federalist Society chapter) and, perhaps uniquely, she was a board member of the ACLU for three years (the ACLU represented several Review staffers during the Bill Cole affair). She runs a small company, Sea Ranch Woolworks, that makes knitted goods from the wool produced on her 300-acre farm, and she also runs a law firm, Dhillon & Smith LLP, that she co-founded in 2006.

In 2013, Dhillon ran for vice chairwoman of the California state GOP, won by a landslide, and since then she has become the public face of the state GOP. Dhillon has the support of Charlie Munger Jr. -- who is an important GOP contributor, a Stanford physicist, and the son of Warren Buffett's renowned partner of the same name at Berkshire Hathaway. When she was elected, Munger said, "As she's proven, she's a rising star in the party and she's also a sharp cookie and highly able. One has to distinguish, she was elected on her merits," he added. "She got there in spite of being a woman, in spite of being Sikh. She's the first woman vice chair in party history. There was no royal road paved for her."
