College plans bevy of cable productions
By J. Dana Haynes
Of The Print
This summer, Clackamas
Community College will run a
series of programs on Liberty
Cable’s channel 9 and
Cablesystems Pacific’s channel
33, Television Production
Supervisor Carlos Ricketson
The scheduled shows in­
clude several telecourses, a
series of films on World War II,
ceremonies, a Timber festival,
local awards banquet and a
pilot for a news program pro­
duced by College students.
The video projects depart­
ment also hopes to present a
live country music jam on June
3. Ricketson said the produc­
tion hinges on whether or not
the College can use Liberty
Cable’s mobile unit, a van from
which television production
can be directed.
“If we can get the mobile
unit we will be fine,” Ricketson
said. “We would also like to do
the (Associated Student
Timberfest, but that too
depends on getting the van.”
Ricketson said he expects
to know later this week
whether the mobile unit will be
available for those productions.
Social Sciences Chairper­
son Fred DeWolfe will present
a telecourse on films of World
War II, which will also be aired
on the cable channels.
Each movie will run twice,
on Tuesdays and Thursdays at
9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and
may be viewed at home, or in
the McLoughlin Hall audio

term at the College.
DeWolfe is excited about
the summer series he said. This
will be the first time he has
presented the films over cable
“I managed to get some of
these films directly from a
wholesaler in Chicago, so (the
College) saved money on it,”
De Wolfe said.
Ricketson produced the
film series, which he said were
shot and edited in the
McLoughlin Hall studio. Each
film is preceded by a ten
minute lecture by DeWolfe.
The closest project for the
A/V department is the country
music concert, which is
scheduled for June 3. The jam
will feature approximately 40
members of Bob Misley’s
Country and Bluegrass classes.
Productions such as this
are not an original concept, but
it will be the first time a live
musical show has been aired
from the College and possibly
the first live cable telecast done
by an Oregon community col­
lege, Steve Johnson, College
video technician, said.
The concert will be held
from 7:30-9:30 p.m. in the
Community Center Mall.
Ricketson said taping and air­
ing the show is “still up in the
air,” but he is hoping for the
chance to present the artistic

have acquired the illness from
