ASG President Don Porter is
one of three candidates run­
ning for the Zone 7 seat on the
College Board of Directors.
The only student running, he is
up against incumbent Larry
Wright, vice-principal of Canby
Union High School, and Al
Harmon, also of Canby.
“After getting into the school
government here at CCC I
have found that there is a lot of
red tape and because of it it’s
really hard to get anything
done in the one year you have
as president. In the four year
term position of a school board
member, there’s enough time
to start and finish things. I’d
really like to see the results of
my accomplishments,” Porter
stated in a recent interview.

Depression and how to cope topic of seminar
By Sherry Succo
Of The Print
What is depression? How
can it be solved? Where does it
lead? The answers to these
compelling questions, accom­
panied by tips on how to
recognize, understand, accept
and survive depression, were
offered by clinical social
worker, Jerry Juve, at the
seventh winter-term Focus on
Women seminar Thursday
Juve, who is employed as a
therapist at Clackamas County
Mental Health Cline, defined
depression not only as an
emotional disorder charac­
terized by either sadness,.inac­
tivity, difficulty in thinking and
concentration or dejection, but
also as a “composite of these
behaviors, attitudes and
“I perceive depression as a
process for getting into control,
opposed to being out of con­
trol,” said the straight-forward
therapist, “however, I believe
that the most common, serious
forms of what I term un­
necessary depression, can be
Juve shared with an alert
audience the four methods he
utilizes in treating depressed
individuals, and which he
believes, will help to minimize
the “unnecessary” process.
They are: 1) accept the
deDressive state; 2) neutralize
it; 3) maintain self-awareness;
4) know how to identify your
own needs as well as others.
Where can depression lead?
According to Juve, it can
definitely lead to suicide, which
he defined as “the end of a
continum of depression,” yet
which he constantly stressed,

in a lengthy discussion of the
aspects, myths and pre­
symptoms of suicide.
