Parking fines
SS no part of Rhapsody
fuel student
emergency funds
by Alberta Roper
Staff writer
The coffers of the General
Fund and Emergency Student
Loan Fund are steadily increas­
ing thanks to the many students
who persist in illegally parking
throughout the campus-
especially in Grove Circle.
Violations range from
students parking along yellow
lines, parking on slant using tow
spaces, or illegally occupying
designated handicapped or
visitor spots.
Increased enrollment this
term has created a parking
space shortage in the Grove Cir­
cle lot
McLoughlin and Randall Halls.
But Stan Johnson, Chief of
Public Safety, assured “There
is sufficient parking throughout
the campus.” Johnson pointed
out “Parking Regulations” in
the Student Handbook:“Lack
of a readily available designated
parking area is not an excuse for
violation of any parking regula­
tion.” This translates to park­
ing in one of the other lots and
walking a little farther to class.
Johnson explained that the
parking problem-mainly at
Grove Circle-follows a definite
pattern each term; the first
week, lots are jammed because
students, both day and night are
working out financial aid pro­
blems, adding and dropping
classes and locating classrooms.
Johnson assured that during the
first two weeks “we issue only
warning citations, unless the car
is parked in a designated han­
dicapped space.” The third
week citations are issued.
Students pay $3 per ticket-$5
if illegally parked in a handicap­
ped space. Fines are doubled if
not paid in ten days. When
students complain, Johnson
quips, “God gives it and God
takes it back.” In this case part
of what was taken comes back
to the students. Half the
revenue from parking citations
is placed in the Student Loan
Fund. The other half goes to the
General Fund.
Money in the Student Loan
Fund is for emergency situa­
tions and is disbursed by the
Finacial Aid Office. Kathy
Scheer, Financial Aid Coor­
dinator, clarified conditions for
these emergency funds. They
are available to returning
students only, who must be in
good standing and can’t owe
tuition or fines. The maximum
loan is $50 and loans aren’t
available the first two or last
two weeks of each term.
“God gives it and
God takes it back.”
Asked what else he would like
to convey to the student body,
Johnson stressed that some
students aren’t aware that he is
a Reserve Police Officer and
“can stop and give speeding
tors are processed by the
Oregon City Municipal Court.
There are traffic problems at
Clackamas-everything from il­
legal parking, four-wheelers
driving up and over curbs and
across the grass to speeding.
During the period July 1, 1985
to June 30, 1986 Public Safety
issued 1,033 parking citations.
What will it take to decrease
the citations this year?

Rhapsody is the arts/literature
magazine of and for Clackamas
Community College. Students,
faculty, and even the community
are encouraged to display their
art for the enjoyment of the cam­
pus and as a valuable addition to
their portfolio.
Robin Anderson, art student,
did not even know ofRhapsody’s
existence after three years of at­
tending CCC. Ms. Anderson
complained about the lack of
publicity to her friends who in
turn referred Robin to her
favorite saying “Don’t complain
unless you’re willing to do
something about it”.
After Robin accepted the
editorship she began creating a
format for the magazine and its
management. Her three main
goals are to make students aware
of the publication , to use a wider
variety of art to appeal to a larger
audience, and let everyone know
about the interesting, talented
people at the college.
The art going into Rhapsody
will be “a little bit of everything”

from short stories, drawings,
poetry, photography, original
lyrics/musical compositions,
plays, satire, to anything you want
to submit as art.
As for publicity, the new editor
depends on word-of-mouth,
posters, and she has visited some
arts and composition classes
recruiting new talent. If interested
in sharing your work it can be left
at Trailer B (behind Randall Hall)
or given directly to Robin who
wears a “Rhapsody Editor” pin
on campus. Deadline for work fe
Dec 1.
Submissions will be assessed by
the appropriate departments tc
impartially decide what will go in­
to the magazine. “A lot of people
are good ‘artists’ and just don’
know it. This term alone there art
25 composition classes and since
they have stories written anyway,
they may as well submit them.
The worst I can do is give it back
to them”. No gestapo-men in­
Facility available on campus
Daycare a learning experience
by Darla Durisch
Contributing writer
Many students may be
unaware of a service that is
available on campus to stud­
ents, The Campus Children’s
Center.This facility is a private
community day care center
located near the college parking
lot by the McLoughlin Building.
Although this is not a campus-
affiliated program, the college
students are among their
targeted customers. The center
provides low-income child care
for six month old infants up to
children age six.
Fees are on a sliding scale
basis. Generally a prospective
parent may expect to pay $1.50
an hour, which averages out to
$212 a month for a full day ser­
Once parents have enrolled
their children, they are welcome
to come and view classroom ac­
tivités. According to Janna
Cook, director of the center,
“We maintain an open-door
policy.” The center has set aside
an area for parents to view their
Children are divided into
three age groups: six months to
two, two and a half to four, and
four to six years. Each age has
its own classroom with a
teacher/child ratio of 10:1.
Classrooms are divided into
several fun areas including
space for a theater, games and
puzzles, art, and a house play
area. From 12:30 until 3 pm is
nap time for each child. If the
child is unable to nap then
he/she must spend the time on a
quiet activity such as reading.
Daily activities for each age
group are similar, with the ex­
ception of infants, who require
special care, such as,changing
diapers and feeding. All ac­
tivities teachers prepare center
on the development of each
childs learning and social skills.
The center stresses pre-math,
writing and reading skills which
will help the child transfer
smoothly into first grade.
“Every activity is a learning ex­
perience. Even holding a paint
brush helps develop motor
skills,” Cook said.
Parents are given the option
of setting-up feeding schedules
for infants and must provide
their food. Older children are
fed by the center, based on a
USDA Food Program similar to
those at public schools. This en­
sures the parents that their
children are receiving a nutri­
tionally sound diet.
Other services the center pro-
vides are summer programs for
children six to twelve years old.
It is primarily a recreational
program geared towards work­
ing mothers who need summer
child care. Also, the center
maintains the Clackamas Fami­
ly and Child Care Information
Service. This service helps
parents locate preschools, fami­
ly resource agencies and home
child care providers. This ser­
vice helps family oriented agen­
cies increase their contact with
the public by increased publici­
Originally in 1966, The Cam­
pus Children’s Center opened as
a practicum lab for Clackamas
student teachers. When the col­
lege dropped the teaching pro­
gram the lab area was taken
over by the Oregon City Day
Care Center and re-named to
Campus Children’s Center. The
agency is run by a volunteer
board of directors consisting of
parents and interested com­
munity members. Funds come
from parent fees, United Way,
donations, fund raisers and
USDA child care nutrition pro­
