Clackamas Community College
Instructor wins Oregon Book Award
Amy K. Hanson
Managing Editor
Part-time English Instructor
James Grabill was awarded the
Oregon Book Award in poetry on
Nov. 13 for his book Poem Ris­
ing out of the Earth and Stand­
ing up in Someone.
Out of 19 entries, Grabill’s
book was one of four finalists. His
book entitled Through the Green
Fire also made into the finals in
the creative non-fiction category.
“It’s an honor,” he said. “I
feel any of the books could have
won.”
He said that winning this
award is a huge encouragement
and feels it really helps the work.
“I think a lot of poets experi­
ence a feeling of being on the out­
skirts of culture,” he said. “Some­
thing like this can give someone
a niche of writing, a true culture,
instead of an activity that isn’t
truly respected.”
Poem Rising out of the
Earth and Standing up in Some­
one covers a number of themes.
When Grabill organized the book
he separated the poems into three
sections.
The first section entitled
“Wide moment, long afternoons,
short weeks, lost hours,” deals
with the complex subject of time
and the “actuality of actually be­
ing here.”
“We live in a multi-faceted,
multi-dimensional world,” he
said.
The second section is “A
dolphin’s mate above crackling
ocean mountains.” It includes
prose poems that play with real­
ity using play and jazz music in
images.
“Approaching form” is the
title of the third section which
Grabill describes as meditative.
“It looks at the presence of
things from different angles,” he
said.
Grabill became interested in
writings during his senior yeat at
Colorado State University.
“I sampled a lot of things and
literature and poetry was what I
returned to,” he said. “It was ex­
citing to see what could be done
with language.”
Born in Bowling Green,
Ohio, Grabill received his BFA
undergraduate degree from
Wooster and went on to get an
English degree from Colorado
State University.
According to Grabill he was
influenced in writing by the mu­
sic he listened to during his-.col-
lege career. This included artists
like Bob Dylan, Neil Young and

Joni Mitchell.
“The lyrics in their songs
were really evocative,” he said.
Over the past five years
Grabill has taught.a variety of
composition classes at CCÇ. Not
only does he work as a part-time
instructor, he also does medical
transcription three times a week
Student access to Internet
planned for winter term
Dan Anderson
Staff Writer
The Streeter Hall computer
lab will have increased Internet
access, through NetScape and
FIT software, after the Christmas
Break, according to information
supervisor Paul Rothi.
“We’ll be working a lot dur­
ing the break to bring the Streeter
Lab up,” Rothi explained. “Stu­
dents will have access come win­
ter term.”
Streeter Lab computer tutors
blamed the delay on logistical and
financial concerns.
“If we had the kind of
Internet access,” that would allow
students to explore cyberspace
freely, “everyone would be, like,
'I wanna do the teen chat thing’
and never get any work done,”
tutor PamJo Frasl complained.
“We’d have a big long line of
people.”
“How could you control it?”
tutor Karen Vancil asked rhetori­
cally. “How much would the
whole thing cost?”
Neither Vancil nor Frasl had
learned that workers would put
the Internet in place in the very
near future.
This confusion lends a touch

of credence to rumors that have
flown about the campus recently
about the college’s conspicuous
lack of Internet access. Instruc­
tors, administrators and the
Clackamas Print have had “net-
surfing” capabilities for many
months. Some students, left in the
cold, have blamed school admin-
istration for the hold up, citing
some kind of cover-up conspiracy.
Many area high schools cur­
rently have better Internet access
than Clackamas. This has made
many students very angry.
The coming Internet access
will provide students with many
educational benefits; students can
admire art, literature, geography,
mathematics, science, and gain
hands-on computer science in an
engaging, graphical way. ,
Students already have access
to e-mail through WordPerfect,
but cannot easily find e-mail ad­
dresses of people outside CCC.
Certain individuals have used the
school’s e-mail system to distrib­
ute the InterNet conspiracy ru­
mors.
After Christmas Break, stu­
dents will have a new educational
resource: cyberspace.

Car stolen
at Harmony
Center
Paul Ulmen
Staff Writer
“Never leave your car
running with the keys in it,”
says Dianna Shepherd, ad­
ministrative secretary for pub­
lic safety. Unfortunately this
is just what Debbie Baker did
at the Harmony Center last
Thursday about 2 p.m. when
her car was stolen.
Baker, the director at the
Harmony Center, says she
parked by the curb in the back
parking lot arid ran inside for
just a moment to pick up some
paperwork. At the time she
didn’t see anyone suspicious
hanging around outside. On
the way in, she ran past two
staff members who were
standing by the door. She
thought they were watching
