Center Elections yield
expected results
Associated Student Government elections, which were
conducted on Monday and Tuesday, offered no surprises.
David LeDoux, currently ASG’s National Affairs Officer,
is expected to be elected president of ASG for the ’98-’99
school year. At 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, with approximately 50%
of the ballots counted, LeDoux was clearly in the lead. His
rival in the presidental race was Clackamas student and write-
in candidate John Heller.
"I think I have a big job ahead of me. I’m excited —
running a student government and trying to be a voice for
students is a big job," commented LeDoux.
Clackamas student Brian Fuentez was running for vice presi­
dent and faced no known opposition. Also at 8:30 p.m. Fuentez
was predicted to win the vice president seat without a problem.
The winners will take office at the start of fall term.
Full results will be available in the next edition of The
Clackamas Print.

Family, friends and former colleagues gathered April
28 for the dedication of the James T. Brouillette Public
Safety Training Center (PSTC) at 12700 S.E. 82nd Av­
enue in Clackamas. Approximately 100 well-dressed
people gathered in a newly-carpeted room with windows
to view the ten stalls of the new shooting range. This
extension of the college will be open to the public to pro­
vide firearms training.
“James Brouillette had a vision to provide a training
center,” said Susan Chandler, range training officer. Ac­
cording to Chandler, the fruits of that vision will hope­
fully be more visible when the PSTC opens in late May or
early June. The center is caught in a standstill before it
officially opens as it awaits several inspections.
The facility will be taking its safety precautions to the
highest limits in order to eliminate accidents.
“Ear and eye protection is going to be mandatory on the
Volume XXXI, Issue 21
range,” Chandler said. “ You have to wear earmuffs, not
the other soft ones that you put in your ears. The main
reason for that is when we’re in the range room and we’re
trying to check the deck to make sure everyone has ear
and eye protection, we can’t check everybody’s ears to see
if they’ve got the soft ones in, so we’re mandating that
everybody has to have the ear muffs. That way we can
guarantee that everybody out there is wearing their ear
and eye protection.”
All guns brought into the training center must be put
into cases. If individuals do not have cases for their weap­
ons they will be provided. This ensures that people walk­
ing around the building will not have any open firearms.
In addition to this rule, shooters will be required to view
an instructional video. Once finished, the individual must
pass a 12-question test with a score of at least 80%. The
center is firmly grounded in their goal to maintain a safe
educational facility.
“We have clean-fire ammo which means we have very little
lead particles floating around out there. Another safety pre­
caution that the RTOs (range training officers) take is hav­
ing our blood tested every year to make sure that the
