faculty until the permanent positions were filled.
Gill said Howell also encouraged her and the
other temporary professors to apply for the per-
manent jobs. Gill applied for all seven but was the
only one of the seven temporary professors not
hired for the permanent positions. Gill said that
she was, in fact, not even allowed to interview for
any of the positions, even though her experience
and credentials were as good as or better than
those who were hired.
Gill said she met with Howell and told him
about Devlin's anti-gay comments and refusal to
allow her to interview for the permanent posi-
tions. She said Howell promised her to discuss the
Situation with Devlin immediately, but that he
never got back in touch with her.
She said she also got no response when she
tried to discuss the situation with the vice presi-
dent and president of Tarrant County College.
Gill continued to teach as an adjunct professor
at the campus through December 2010, although,
she said, Devlin's attitude toward her became
"even more hostile."
And she said that although she was originally
assigned classes for the 2011 spring term, as she
was preparing for those classes she discovered
she had been removed as the professor. When she
inquired about the status of the class, Gill said, she
was told that Devlin had specifically instructed
that those classes be taken away from her.
Upton said that Devlin and Howell violated the
equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution by
refusing to allow Gill to apply for the permanent
teaching position. He said GiH'Isuit is asking that
she be allowed to complete the application
process and that she be compensated for the time
she has been unemployed.
Gill, who is a Ph.D. candidate at the University
©f Texas at Arlington, said she would love to get
a teaching job with TCC, and while she would
prefer to work at another campus, she is willing
to go back to the Northeast Campus and work
again in Devlin's department.
"I worked hard. I earned it," Gill said of the
permanent position. "I have nothing to be
ashamed of. If it [her working in Devlin's depart-
ment again] would be awkward for anyone, I
think it would be awkward for him [Devlin] be-
cause he is the one who was in the wrong." ■

than The DFW Sisters, a mission of the Sisters of
Perpetual Indulgence. But that group is also ded-
icated to respecting diversity. And both groups in-
clude fundraising for community organizations as
part of their core mission.
So what else could the Diablos do but accept the
challenge when The Sisters invited them to play a
game of kickball for charity?
"What a fun and zany way to raise money for
Legacy," said Legacy Executive Director Melissa
Grove. "I applaud their ability to create a new and
fresh event. I've been doing this a long time and
this is the first time I've seen anything like this."
James Maggard, also known as Sister MaeLynn
Hanzment, acknowledged a possible physical ad-
vantage that favored the Diablos.
"The only way we're going to win is if we
cheat," he said. "So we're fully intending to do
But there are rules — established kickball rules.
And kickball is actually played in Dallas with of-
ficial referees keeping things honest. If one of those
referees is on hand, as Maggard hopes, he may just
have his hands full.
That would just add to the fun, Maggard said,
fully intending to get around any attempt to keep
the game honest.
An attendance fee of $5 :is requested to watch
the game. Additional donations will buy wild
cards. Bigger donations may help one team or the
"Wild cards can add points, score outs, replace
the ball or turn a Diablo into a Sister/' Maggard
said. For a larger donation, a Diablo will switch
teams and play for the Sisters in full makeup.
Maggard admitted that the makeup would be a
Dallas Diablo Paul Ryan said the idea for the
event came from friends in Seattle where the Seat-
tle Quake rugby team played the Seattle Sisters in
a game of kickball and raised several thousand
He expects to have a good showing from both
the men's and women's Diablo teams.
And if The Sisters do cheat, Ryan had a perfect
solution: "We'll cheat ourselves," he said.
The game takes place at Glencoe Park between
Ellsworth and Martel avenues near Central Ex-
pressway and Mockingbird Lane.
A victory party at the Hidden Door follows the
game. Victory? Both teams figure they've won if
they raise some money for Legacy.
