Steve Lundgren, the current
editor of Rhapsody magazine,
will retain . that position next
Rhapsody is Clackamas
Community College’s magazine
of arts and literature, and is
published three times a year.
Lundgren, 19, is from Colton
High School. This was his first
year at the College, and he ad­
mitted that taking over as editor
was tough for a first-year
However, he feels this has
been a good year for him. “I think
I’ve improved the magazine from
when I took the helm. Hopefully,
I’ve developed it and made it
interesting’to the general public
here at the College,” he said.
This year was .only the
second year of Rhapsody’s
existence. Prior to that, it was
called Feature Magazine, and
ran once per term as an insert in
The Print. Last year, Thomas A.
Rhodes became the editor of the
magazine and changed the name.
Under Rhodes’ control, it
became a news magazine with a
focus on articles and essays, as
well as some poetry and art.
Lundgren changed the magazine
when he came to the College,
putting the main emphasis on the
arts and literature.
“I think The Print pretty well
covers the news for the campus,”
Lundgren said. “I felt the need
for an outlet for art, and a freer
forum for expression, was
Lundgren applied for the
editorship again because, “I have
goals that I want to fulfill,” he
said. “I’ve accomplished some,
but there are still many things I
want to do with the magazine.”
Those goals include im­
proving the quality of the
publication, and obtaining a
wider variety of features, he said.
“The magazine is a means
for me,” he said. “It is a means to
develop my own skills. Also, I
think Rhapsody can enhance the
College’s image.’i$j?|
Lundgren has no immediate
plans to change policy for the
magazine, but will strive to
professionalism. “I’ve found it
hard to have an arts and
sometimes I doubt that it’s right
for this College. But I still feel its
a good medium,” he said.
Summer employment
available for youths
By J. Dana Haynes
Of The Print
Despite the first hints of an
economic upswing in America,
unemployment is still a factor
with which to contend. This
summer, thousands of young
people will join the stampede for
too few jobs.
To help contend with this
problem, CETA (Comprehensive
Employment and Training Act)-
will once again sponsor a sum­

program coordinator for the
Employment Training and

number of people who find work

“We’ll probably serve 480
youths through this (program),
plus however many through
private employment, which could
be as many as 100,” Larrimer
said. Last year, the Youth Em­
ployment Program served ap­
proximately 300 people.
The program is designed for
people 14-21 years of age and who
qualify as “disadvantaged
youths,” Larrimer said. A total of
$667,000 has been put aside for the

“We’ve had a lot of success
with this and we’re moving more

The Youth Employment
Program is divided into three
sections, summer work ex­
perience, job sampling and

The summer work ex­
perience is designed to find jobs

agencies, where they will gain
“work skills and habits,”
Larrimer said. - Clackamas

profit agency that regularly
employs young people through
the program.

taste of different jobs, to help
them choose a profession. The
