Hand sanitizer fails to keep students clean

Patty Salazar The Clackamas Print

One of the few sanitizing stations left on campus is the one located in the front Roger Rook stairwell that currently does not have any hand sanitizer available for students to use

Marissa Nwerem The Clackamas Print Clackamas Community College officials last week started collecting the broken hand sanitizer machines sprinkled around campus after The Print started asking questions about why so few seemed to be working. With cold and flu season upon us, between 10 percent and 20 percent of people in the

United States will get sick with a flu virus, according to the Oregon Health Authority. One of the best ways to prevent the spread of illness is careful hand washing, health experts advise. But part-way through the cold and flu season, Clackamas Community College students, faculty members and visitors cannot reliably use the hand sanitizer at sanitizing stations available around campus. That’s because, while the hand sanitizer stations in various buildings often appear filled,

many haven’t been working. Last Friday, a custodian collected several of the machines, tossing them into a bin labeled “trash.” But she said she was taking them to be fixed. Andrew Vasquez, custodial manager at CCC, said the hand sanitizer machines were put on campus last year. “We liked this current system because they are on stands and very visible,” said Vasquez, adding that the previous units used to be mounted to walls. “But the problem is they break

down often.” Many students, such as freshman Tim Berry, realized quickly that the sanitizers are pretty fickle. “The one I usually use in the Neimeyer building works, but I don’t think any other one I’ve come across does,” said Barry when asked if he’s noticed the problem. Hand sanitizing is a big part of staying healthy. “We think they are very important to have and when they work they got a lot of

use,” said Vasquez. “So now it’s about finding something that works. We’re in the process of deciding whether or not we should just take them out all together but it is clear there is a need for them.” While they are being replaced, be sure to keep yourself and everyone around you healthy by washing your hands thouroughly and often. Also, be on the lookout for working sanitation stations that are more stable and accessible than those of the past.

Best local bars for watching sports Chris Browarski The Clackamas Print Cold beer and sports have always gone together and always make for a great time hanging out with friends. With Portland’s great bar culture, it’s no surprise there are lots of good bars to be found even out in the suburbs. Here are some good options closer to Clackamas Community College to take in a game and have a few drinks:

Highland Stillhouse- 201 S. 2nd St. Oregon City While not a sports bar, Scottish style pub Stillhouse is the premier site for Oregon City Timbers supporters to watch their team’s away games. While not packed with TVs like the other bars on this list, the pub features comfortable seating with a large outdoor area. They feature traditional Scottish dishes on their menu but pride themselves in having the largest selection on Scotch whisky in the Portland area. Trying a new Scotch is easy

at Stillhouse, it’s deciding on which to try that’s difficult. The spirits menu goes on for pages and is separated by region. Having over 500 whiskeys to try makes every visit a unique drinking experience. Knowledgeable bartenders can mix drinks with other spirits or serve you a cold beer, but Still House is really all about Scotch. “I love picking out whiskeys from the list,’ said patron James Davis. “There are too many options.” Hot Seat Sports Bar:

18791 S.W. Martinazzi Ave, Tualatin Wilsonville campus goers looking for a Buffalo Wild Wings alternative should look no further than the Hot Seat in Tualatin. A large, loud bar with more television screens than is worth counting make for a fun party atmosphere. “Oh yeah, it gets really crazy here on the weekends,” said waitress Wendy Espinosa. “There are a lot of people here for Ducks games especially.” Hot Seat has a menu full of popular greasy staples such as pizza, burgers and wings. The

beer selection isn’t the best but the atmosphere is exciting. While a sports bar and restaurant by day, Hot Seat ups the music volume weekend nights and features DJs taking on an almost dance club vibe. The restaurant remains open and the TVs still show the game so even patrons less interested in dancing can feel comfortable. Hot Seat gives sports fans a view from the stands without the expense or travel of going to a game. Please see SPORTS BARS, Page 7

A closer focus on an old piece of CCC Erin Carey The Clackamas Print

Erin Carey News Editor Many people who have attend Clackamas Community College might never lay eyes on the campus’ previous art building, and if you have, you might even consider it a bit on the ominous side. It is quite the trip to get out there, past the track and the shiny new art building, hidden away in unattended brush and out of the eyesight of most, save for the stray runner or cyclist. The building had been an old berry processing plant for Smucker’s jam, before it was used by CCC — hence the name. The Smucker’s Building used to house various art classes, and was

used until 2001 when the new art center was built. Asking people on campus, many may give a strange look, completed with, “I never knew there was an old art building.” With its broken and badly patched windows, oddly placed doors that seem to lead out to nowhere, decrepit art on peeling painted green-blue walls and a spray-painted image of a hornet protecting one of the sides of the building, it is one of CCC’s older structures. A look through a foggy and often broken window, all it seems to be used for is storage for the lost and never used again. Although the Smucker’s Building isn’t labeled on the campus’ map, it has “Art Center” painted on one of its walls. The

inside seems not to have fared any better than its outside — strewn around are chairs and tables, where formerly it was probably much like the new building. The new art center is alive with pieces from students past and present decorating the walls and shiny new accessories for the students’ use. It’s much closer to the hustle and bustle of the main campus, as the older building takes at least five minutes just to walk there. The doors of the old building no longer have “AC 101,” the ‘ones’ peeled off, leaving a shadow of their former presence. It’s marked as building 29, which seems to be its only official marking anymore. The doors are locked and bolted and a few of the windows are

even barred. The building still has a few pieces of art, one in particular is made of exhaust pipes and a muffler, a cheerful face decorating the rusted piece. There’s largescale works from Michi Kosuge, Lee Kelly and Richard Pickering. The Oregon Encyclopedia online states that Roy Mikalson permanently founded Clackamas Community College in 1966 with 165 acres. It intended to cover Clackamas community, with the exception of Lake Oswego which was covered by Portland Community College, along with Sandy, Damascus and Boring which were served by Mt. Hood Community College. Looking past the creepy demeanor of this antiquated building, it commands respect.

The Smucker’s Building served many students, the worn brick posts sporting names of past students on faded name pieces with pride. The broken windows give evidence that time and vandals have diminished it. The Smucker’s Building stands on the outreaches of the campus, proving that there’s a lot to learn about a campus that’s nearing its 50th anniversary. It’s important to know the history as a community and to preserve the integrity of the campus for years to come.

The Smucker’s Building now stands alone at the far reaches of the campus. It was Clackamas Community College’s main art resource up until 2001 when a new bond was passed to build a new art center closer to the main campus. It was a dwelling that enabled art students the creative space they needed while having some distance from the hustle and bustle of the other buildings. The building was formerly owned by Smucker’s to process its fruit for jam.

College Night offers food, advice for upcoming, current students Sequoia Allen The Clackamas Print

Free food is often the go-to choice for attracting students, and for pizza fans, next week’s College Night won’t disappoint. On Thursday, Nov. 14, Clackamas Community College will be holding the free event in the Gregory at 6:30 p.m. It’s expected to go until 8:30 p.m. There will be free pizza and soda for all attendees. College Night is sponsored by an organization called Educational Credit Management Corporation, which helps students manage the logistics of attending college, especially with regards to the financial aspects. This will be CCC’s seventh year hosting this event, and other colleges in several other states are also hosting College Nights this month.

At the event next Thursday, the topics being covered are: • How Going to College Can Change your Life • Choosing the Right College • Understanding the Financial Aid Process • Scholarship Searches and Scams Ariane Rakich, Heather Arbuckle and Mat Genuser from CCC’s advising department will cover these subjects. Jennifer Satalino, who hails from the Oregon College Access Network (OrCAN), will be part of covering the topics as well. OrCAN’s aim is to increase participation in post-secondary education and help Oregonians overcome barriers to attending college. Although College Night is geared primarily towards high school juniors and seniors, Darcie Iven, CCC’s scholarship coordinator and financial aid advisor believes that the seminar is still important to college students.

“There will be useful information for anyone who attends,” Iven said. “College freshmen will still find it informative.” An additional incentive to attend is a scholarship drawing that will take place at the end of the evening. Four attending students will be awarded a $500 scholarship that can be used at any accredited university in the country. Elissa Johnson, a current CCC student who attended College Night last year as a senior in high school, was one of the scholarship recipients, “My FAFSA didn’t come until the third week of school,” said Johnson. “Because this happened, I had to pay out of pocket so this scholarship helped a lot.” Scholarship aside, she said that she would “gladly recommend [College Night] because it was very informative… [and] helped a lot with the FASFA application.”

The deadly incline in diabetes Real Health Jesse Henninger Arts & Culture Editor

Larissa Harper The Clackamas Print Pumpkins, ghosts and goblins galore! There are many different elements that are essential to Halloween. Delectable sweets are the center of this holiday. People young and old look forward to this time of the year because it is an excuse for children to get more candy than they normally do, teenagers to go steal candy from their younger siblings (and get some of their own) and parents to take their kids out trick-or-treating, indulging in some of the candy themselves. When Halloween is over and you still have candy left, what do you do with it? “If the candy is chocolate like Reese’s, Kit Kat or M&Ms, I will make brownies with the leftovers,” said Morgan Bird, 18. Friends Grace Graham, 19, and Rachael Richardson, 18, had answers as to what they do with their candy. “I eat it

all,” said Graham. “There is no excess.” Richardson takes a different approach: “I will eat it and freeze the extra to hide it from my family, or else it will be gone in one day.” Trenton Jones, 18, said, “I eat it. If I had left overs I would give it to people.” Some eat all their candy, some use the remainder in other treats and some share their candy. Here are more creative ways to “reuse” and “re-purpose” your old candy! First, if you just can’t eat it all by yourself, throw some M&Ms, Hershey’s Kisses, or other mini chocolates into cupcakes, cookies, brownies, muffins or make them toppings for ice-cream, adding something a little different. You could also keep some to freeze for later. One recipe that is absolutely delicious is Chocolate Peanut Butter 7-Layer Bars. The ingredients needed are: 1 box Devil’s food cake mix 1 egg 1/2 cup butter, melted

To get rid of your Halloween candy, check out to send candy to our troops overseas.

1 cup coarsely crushed pretzels 1 cup peanut butter chips 1 cup chocolate chips 1 cup Reese’s Pieces 1 cup honey roasted peanuts 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13×9 inch baking pan with cooking spray. 2. Next, mix together in a bowl: the cake mix, egg and butter. Stir in the crushed pretzels. Spread the mixture evenly along the bottom of the greased pan and bake for about 8 minutes. 3. After the 8 minutes, take it out of the oven and sprinkle on the peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, Reese’s Pieces and peanuts. Drizzle the top of the bars with the milk. Put it back in the oven for 15 more minutes or until it's golden and bubbly and the center is set. 4. Let it cool completely before cutting into bars. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Make trail mix! Use some left over cereal, nuts and candy to add a little sweetness. Favorites to add are M&Ms, Smarties, gum drops, Dots, Sour Patch Kids, Whoppers, Skittles, Reese’s Pieces or Raisinets. For the specific recipe of the pictured trail mix just toss together Rice Krispies cereal, pretzels, sunflower seeds, almonds, peanuts, tootsie rolls, dots, Reese’s pieces, peanut butter chips and candy corn! Delicious and easy, right? There are a lot of coffee lovers out there and a great way to add a little something special to coffee is to take some left over Hershey bars, Milky Ways, Crunch bars and other smooth chocolates and melt them in the coffee. Just make your coffee as desired and stir in the chocolates until it’s all melted, then enjoy! For more ways to get rid of extra candy check out This is a way for people to donate their candy to troops. The address to send to is located on the website.

Add chocolate candies to your coffee to add the kick you need.

Had enough Halloween candy yet? Do your teeth hurt from the lollipops, the chocolate bars and the gumdrops? Have you ever wondered how our bodies are affected by our unhealthy habits? Our bodies are not capable of metabolizing the insane amounts of sugar we eat. We know our eating habits are not healthy, but we have not taken any steps to change them. Sugar consumption has climbed steadily over thousands of years. The global sugar industry has continued to grow at a steady rate since it made its way to the Caribbean islands in the 17th century (These cane fields are where the atrocity of the enslaving of the African people began). Sugar has always been big business, a major player in the global market. Sugar is an ingredient in nearly every processed food product on store shelves. If we created a timeline depicting the history of American food, you would see sugar’s history align with it. An excellent example of this is when CocaCola was introduced to the public in 1886. Since that moment, sugar in our diets has skyrocketed. According to the American Diabetes Association, one 12 ounce can of soda contains an average of 39 grams of sugar. Americans drink approximately 50 gallons of soda per person each year. That averages to almost 4.5 gallons of sugar (in soda beverages) ingested by Americans each year. Besides drinking soda, we ingest more sugar than ever with the food choices we make. Americans shovel 22.7 teaspoons of refined sugar into their mouths every day. Some of the worst offenders for sugary ingredients are: ice cream, fruit smoothies and coffee beverages. Our must-have food items are, in fact, contributing to a disease that is the seventh leading cause of death in the world. A global epidemic, Diabetes mellitus is quickly becoming a serious wake-up call for everyone. Many pay close attention to their sugar intake and exercise regularly, lowering their risk for diabetes. For 26 million Americans, however, the innate ability to process sugar is decreased or completely disabled. How does the body process sugar? With insulin, produced by the pancreas. Insulin is responsible for transferring glucose — (sugar) generated energy to the cells of the body. It literally saves our lives, at least three times a day, or as many times as we eat. Insulin is an essential part of life. What would happen to our bodies if we didn’t produce insulin? The answer is scary. Find out more at www.

A quiet Friday turns into first annual “Pie Your Professor”


Photos by Patty Salazar The Clackamas Print

Top photo: Far left Kathleen Hollingsworth, music instuctor and event coordinator, stands in front of Niemeyer with fellow music department employees introducing the first annual Pie Your Professor. The Starbucks bag Hollingsworth is holding has all of the tickets that students bought for $3 a piece to help raise money for the band and choir groups. They planned to split the funds.

Above: Hollingsworth draws a name out of the Starbucks bag but pulls out her own name. She does a few twirls and points at the audience to give one of the students a chance to pie the professor of their choice.

Aulani Wehage, an administrative assistant for the music department, pies Brian Rose, the chair of the music department. The crowd cheers as Wehage smashes a caramel pie in Rose’s face.

The lucky student that Hollingsworth randomly chooses is Peter Judge, who is a band student on campus. He pies Mark Campbell, an instumental instuctor for the college.

Sports literacy and foosball Sports for Newbs Brittany Horne Co-Editor-in-Chief

I hope you learned some basics of foosball in the first week of ‘Sports for Newbs’.

Chris Browarski The Clackamas Print Running through mud, grass, hills and the occasional gravel road, all in the rain or shine. Cross country isn’t the sport for everyone; it’s a long grinding battle from start to finish all on unpaved trails. It’s more than just talent or training. A cross country runner needs both determination and heart to cross the finish line first. Clackamas cross country runner Jorge Gil-Juarez has what it takes to be an excellent cross-country runner. On Oct. 26, Gil-Juarez took home second place in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges Southern Region Championship, helping to seal a spot for Clackamas Community College in the upcoming NWAACC championship. Gil-Juarez is a very talented young man. His excellent running ability is the product of intense training and determination. He pushes himself to run farther and faster. “The more miles you run, the faster you can go,” said GilJuarez. Gil-Juarez trains by running 70 to 80 miles a week, alternating weekdays between long distance legs and speed training to stay in top physical condition. Saturday is usually race day where the two styles come together to really test the body. Allison Pugsley, a close friend testified to his drive. “He’s not one to slack off at all,” said Pugsley. “I’ve never met anyone who is so positive and strong-hearted for this sport.” Pugsley says Gil-Jaurez will run no matter the conditions; he’s out training every single day. While the ideal running day is a nice cool 60 degree overcast day, Gil-Juarez doesn’t hesitate to run in rain, snow, or heat. He says the only condition that might keep him from training is a lightning storm. Gil-Juarez wasn’t always in love with running; it wasn’t until his junior year at Phoenix High School that his friends pushed him and he decided to try out for cross country. “My best friend wanted me to start running so I tried it… That was like my catalyst,” he said. Gil-Juarez started slow but found that his times quickly improved with training. So he constantly pushed himself. Training harder and harder, Gil-

Juarez’s running improved until it clicked for him his senior year. He became the best distance runner on his high school team. His high school and college friend Zach Hibbs believes Gil-Juarez’s natural talent gives him an edge. “He trained with the rest of us and did the same thing,” said Hibbs. “In fact going into our sophomore year at Clackamas I was putting in more miles than he was but I still couldn’t compete at his level.” Natural talent aside, GilJuarez’s determination for his sport would come under trial his sophomore year as a severe camping accident put his running career in jeopardy. While cutting wood with a hatchet, Jorge took a swing a bit too close and chopped through his shoe, cutting the middle toe of his right foot in half. A nasty injury for anyone, but truly

reason to panic for a runner. The injury sidetracked his sophomore year and left him using red-shirt status to preserve a year of eligibility for a third year at Clackamas. When he was able to get back on his feet and running, Gil-Juarez wasn’t anywhere near the pace he left at the end of his freshman year. “I was really worried about not being able to compete at the same level,” said Gil-Juarez. Gil-Juarez was back to square one and had to train hard to resume being competitive again. For four grueling months he ran every day, building up to the same pace he had left off at. Despite his reputation for hardcore training, Gil-Juarez is an easy-going and fun-loving guy. He has an athletic body, floppy hair and a big smile. Hibbs calls him super hilarious.

“Wherever he goes, he’s the life of the party,” said Hibbs. He is studying animal science as he loves animals, particularly household pets. He hopes to transfer to a university with an animal studies major as well as a good cross country program. Currently he is hopeful to finish the season high at the NWAACC championship with the strong Clackamas team. Teammates Badane Sultessa and Jackson Baker are also top runners, and Gil-Juarez feels that having three elite athletes at the head of the pack is intimidating to other teams and gives Clackamas an advantage. Gil-Juarez’s goals seem attainable with his incredible work ethic. Grinding away at every challenge, there is no limit to what this young man can achieve.

Are you a sports newb? Were you more interested in video games, ‘girly’ things or education to learn about sports or experience adequate exposure to the ‘game night’ culture? And then maybe one day you found yourself going out to a football game with friends, your child started playing volleyball or you started dating a basketball fanatic. Whatever your story is, you find yourself wondering what is going on in the game. What is everyone so excited about, all I see is players fighting over a ball up and down the field. Why does that guy get a free shot? How do I help my child practice and train if i don’t know a thing about soccer? How can I be a part of my significant others biggest interest? I’m here to save the day! Or, well, at least to lead the adventure of sports literacy. I will be researching and experiencing a variety of sports and interviewing sport-gifted individuals to provide a sort of sports-for-newbs crash course. The best part is that I’ll be learning with you, so hopefully what is new to me will be new to you. Each week will be focused on a specific sport and include some history, objective and rules, game related terms and culture tid-bits. This week we will explore foosball as an example, providing some history, culture and rules. Foosball is “a tabletop version of soccer in which players turn rods fixed on top of a playing box and attached to miniature figures of players, in order to flick the ball and strike it toward the goal,” according to Google definitions. Also known as: tabletop football, fussball or kicker. The origins of this sport game are hard to trace, but it is believed that many countries began developing different variations of foosball in roughly the same time period. Organized soccer made its debut in the 1860s; the soccer table version appearing shortly after. The first foosball table patent in the U.S. was registered in 1901, although it is agreed upon that its origins are western European like soccer. According to Le Soir Illustre, a Belgian magazine, a Frenchman named Lucien Rosengart is credited for the invention of the foosball table. He is also accredited with the minicar, frontwheel drive and the seat belt. A popular belief is that foosball was invented to rehabilitate war veterans. This is not true. However, foosball has been used for rehabilitative purposes and is great for rebuilding hand-eye coordination. Today it is used for social rehabilitation as seen offered by corrections facilities for recreational use. So let’s get playing! Below are the rules, according to The Three Golden Rules: 1. The tables have nine balls and play the best out of nine, or the first team to five goals. 2. If a ball goes into the goal legally, then a point is scored, no exceptions. 3. Do not spin the rods! Some other rules you may want to use as well: 4. To find out who goes first, flip a coin. 5. Serve the ball through the hole using any technique, but you must touch the ball with a ‘man’ before you can score. 6. After a goal is made, the last team scored upon receives the ball. 7. If a ball goes off the table, the last team scored upon receives the ball. 8. If the ball has stopped and is unreachable, the “Dead Ball” is given to the last team scored upon. 9. If the ball is in your possession, you may call ‘Time Out’, but must make sure the other team is ready when you call ‘Time In’. 10. Do not reach on the table for the ball or use your hand while it is in play. 11. Have fun and respect others while playing. 12. The ball should not be in any one place for more than 15 seconds.

Tracking Cougar Gil-Juarez and his cross country dreams


Gil-Juarez, who is from Pheonix, Ore. realized he was a good runner his last race of his high school Junior year. When he was beaten to state by a teammate, he was determined to make it to state his high school Senior year. He won third in state that year. At the Southern Region Championship, Gil-Juarez placed second for men’s cross country.

SPORTS BARS: Across the river

Continued from Page 1

Nicoli’s Grill and Sports Bar: 17880 S.W. McEwan Rd. Lake Oswego Newly renovated Nicoli’s features a bowling alley and arcade making it fun spot for the whole family. The restaurant opened in the spot of the former Players/Gametime location earlier this year and has given the old facility a fresh new feel. “I heard about the place on the radio and thought my boys would like it,” said Rick Peartree. “It’s got good food and the kids have a fun time.” The menu is not extensive but does have some unique burger options such as the Slap Shot which features a fried egg and grilled ham. Nicoli’s offers many beers on tap and in bottles to appeal to many tastes. What is unique are the four wines offered on tap for those interested in something fruitier. Many screens show the games from around the country but unfortunately there is no audio being played apart from the bigger match ups. This isn’t a terrible issue for larger groups as chatter can overshadow game sound but for couples and single patrons a different bar might be a better option. Good service, good food and good games make for a lot of good times at Nicoli’s Grill and Sports Bar. Lil’ Cooperstown- 1817 Willamette Falls Dr, West Linn Lil’ Cooperstown is a chain with a location in Oregon City. Heading across the bridge and taking Willamette Falls Dr. South, just past 10th street, brings you to a smaller version

in West Linn’s historic district. While the name alludes to the baseball hall of fame, the bar accommodates fans of all sports and is a relaxing spot to watch a game. A long bar is the main seating area but smaller tables line the back wall. TV screens are abundant for the smaller seating capacity and offer good viewing angles for most seats. While the world series brought out many of West Linn’s Red Sox fans, Lil’ Cooperstown is a perfect place to catch a Blazers game and have a conversation without shouting over the noise.


Ordering Online is as easy as changing yOur majOr…again.


We come here a lot for basketball games.” Michelle Green Lil’ Cooperstown patron

“We come here a lot for basketball games,” said patron Michelle Greene. “My husband and his friends were here for almost all of March Madness last year.” Happy hour runs three to 6 p.m. and then again from 9 p.m. to close. A well equipped bar offers a good selection of beers and liquor and the kitchen has a full menu going beyond just burgers and sandwiches and features specialty entrées such as Parmasean Panko-Crusted Rockfish and Meatloaf.

Like the nearby Oregon City location, Lil’ Coops in West Linn is right across the river in the Willamette neighborhood. Sports fans frequenting the town over the bridge have the option to enjoy a cozier setting than the larger OC restaurant. Just like its OC counterpart, West Linn Lil’ Cooperstown boasts sports games on the TVs and rare collectible memorabilia on the walls.
