ASG starts year with new goals, theme
by Jeff Kemp
Co-Editor-in-Chief
The Associated Student
Government of Clackamas Com­
munity College, fresh with a new
slogan, has outlined its goals for
the 1993-94 school year.
“Associated Student
Government is students helping
fellow students become successful
in their education, home life and
career” is this year’s theme.
One of the major con­
cerns this year, according to ASG,
is student safety. One goal is to
increase the lighting of the four
main passageways that lead to the
various parking lots around cam­
pus by thè end of Spring Term.
There are also plans to trim the
assorted shrubbery for increased
visibility. Weekly personal safety
classes are also beginning this fall.
Student Government is
also acknowledging the need for
cooperative childcare, a need that
will be met in some form by the
beginning of the Winter Term.
Legislatively, ASG plans
to inform the student body weekly
regarding local, state and national
issues. The tight budget situation
has caused the House of Represen­
tatives to reduce Pell Grant aid for
college students. ASG hopes to
gather 5,000 letters from
Clackamas students concerning the
Pell Grant by June, 1994. Ques­
tions regarding legislative matters
the college may be involved in can
be directed to Angela Dierdorf,
ASG’s legislative director.
A special student service
24-hour, multi-use hotline is also
in the making. All calls will be
forwarded to student volunteers
who sign up for specific hours to
assist their fellow students.
Some of the services the
hotline could provide include: a
list of college resources, study
group contacts, study tips, stress­
reduction techniques and referral
numbers for abuse, suicide and
drug and alcohol abuse.
Five separate seminar/
lectures are also scheduled each
term. Topics of the seminar in-
elude: success as a student, home
life, and/or career goals and op-

the seminars, support and study
groups are also available to all
students.
A blueprint of a volun­
teer program has been designed to
take effect by the beginning of
Winter Term. The program will
place volunteers in a position of
service that enhances their educa­
tional experience to best benefit
the community. The program is
devised to log 500 student volun­
teer hours by the end of Fall Term,
with an increase each following
term. In addition, ASG hopes to
have students involved in all col­
lege committees by the end of Fall
Term.

A Clackamas student was

New parking lot needs attention
by Heidi Branstator
Co-Editor-in-Chief
“This campus is
jammed,” said Jim Wiseman,
Public Safety Supervisor, regard­
ing the parking situation at
Clackamas this year.
There is a new parking
lot next to the Family Resource
Center that was never more than
40percent full last week, Wiseman
said.
The new lot is located
through the FRC entrance and
behind the building. It is ideal
parking for students who have
classes in McLoughlin, Streeter,
and/or the Dye Learning Center.
Wiseman said he is hop­
ing people will start usinga“friend­
ship system” and car pool to get
to school. At $900 to $1,000 a
space, “we can’t afford to keep
(putting in new parking lots),”
he said.
The lot is well-lit and
has no trees to create shadows
during night parking.

direction. North ran across cam­

“Public Safety gavechase
in the general area,” Wiseman said.
North was picked up near Shari’s
restaurant as a suspect at approxi­
mately 11:30 p.m. Mizuho iden­
tified North and Public Safety of­
ficer Michael Asboe made the ar­
rest.
North, who is not a
Clackamas student, “smelled of
alcohol” Wiseman said. He was

down near the entrance to the CC
Mall.
When she heard her bus
coming, Mizuho gathered her
books and walked toward the bus.
North was hiding in the doorway
of the counseling office and when
Mizuho walked by, he grabbed her
and threw her down.
The commotion caught
the attention of a bus passenger
who began yelling at North. A
type crime,” he said.
Mizuho continued to take
classes and Public Safety “made
sure we were in the area when she
caught her bus,” Wiseman said.
Public Safety is attempting
to increase the number of cadets
and officers on duty.
"Ourfocus for having (offic­
ers and cadets) here is during stu-
denthours," Wiseman said. How­
ever, changes take time, he con­
cluded.
