why we created a very widespread and diverse list to suit every one of our potential contributors. Items that do not fit into a basket will be auctioned off separately. Our team is committed to sending a strong

message; so any and all donations are appreciated. In times of hardship, we must not overlook the small things because they mean the most.” Lindsay Loney is another stu-

dent on the “Project Boston” team and helped gather items for the baskets. They wound up getting more items than needed for the baskets being auctioned. “We have a lot of random stuff

Some of CCC’s business students will be hosting a silent auction for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. This is not only philanthropic, it is for a grade that will be visible on their transcripts. It will be held Saturday, May 18, from 1 to 5 p.m. in Gregory Forum. Instructor Cole Chatterton’s BA 205 Business Communication class is based on planning and conducting a project for the benefit of others. One of this term’s Business Communication groups decided to host a silent auction event for the benefit of the Boston Marathon victims. The project manager in this group is Antonio Matic. “The whole class is just making a philanthropic work that will benefit the community somehow,” said Matic. “Basically our goal is to raise $2,500 to send to the Boston Marathon victims to cover health expenses and maybe even to help infrastructure with the city.” There will be themed baskets auctioned throughout the day including fitness, cooking, spa, movie, REST (relaxation through sensory deprivation) and athletic baskets. To obtain the items needed to fill these baskets, the “Project Boston” team has sent out a wishlist of items to the businesses in the Portland metro area with the following message: “We understand that not all things will be obtainable which is

right now, and are putting the baskets together. The random items we will either give away as prizes or sell on the side,” said Loney. Please see BOSTON, Page 3

Top: The Cougar softball team ended their regular season with a 7-0 victory over Clark at home on sophomore day on Saturday. The team cheered to celebrate No. 6 Megan Malvick’s second inning home run. Bottom: Sophomore softball players were honored after their final home game.

Andrew Millbrooke Sports Editor Lucy Baldovino made sure sophomore day would be a celebration for the Cougars as the Clackamas Community College (28-14 overall, 15-5 in region) softball team ended the regular season in style with a 7-0 victory over visiting Clark on Saturday. Baldovino pitched a complete game one-hit shutout, striking out 16 batters with a mix of speed and movement on her pitches. “Lucy looked great,” said head coach Jessica Buel. “It was good for her to get a full game in today and get some innings under her belt before the tournament. She did an awesome job.” Sophomore Tasha Silvius was amazed that Baldovino performed so well on the hot day. “It was really hot. I’m really hot. I can’t imagine how hot she was,” said Silvius. “She did a really good job to finish it off.” Baldovino has assumed the role of closer for the past few weeks as Breann Morrison (7-4) and Alyson Boytz (13-4) have taken over the starting pitching roles. It’s nice to know that if

needed, Baldovino can go the distance. Baldovino gave credit to her team for backing her up. “My team played really good today,” said Baldovino. “When my team comes together like that, I definitely pitch better. I’m very proud of my team to keep hitting the ball.” Baldovino was happy to get a chance to pitch an entire game. “I felt really good,” said Baldovino. “I’ve been a closer for the past couple weeks, so it feels nice to start and finish a game.” The Cougars got on the board with two runs in the first inning, then sophomore shortstop Megan Malvick launched a no-doubt-about-it two-run home run to center field to give the Cougars a 4-0 lead in the second inning. That was all that Baldovino needed, as she kept the Penguins off balance, allowing one long single off the centerfield wall in the sixth inning. Malvick added a sacrifice fly for a total of three RBIs and Rashaun Sells added two hits and a run batted in for the Cougars. Seven Cougars got hits as they continually put pressure on the Penguin defense. Please see SOFTBALL, Page 8

Please keep in mind that summer term marks the $5 tuition increase, raising tuition from $79 per credit hour to $84 per credit hour. Summer term also offers four week and eleven week courses in addition to the traditional 11 week courses. CCC’s Enrollment Services Specialist Ric Jenkerson explains the benefit of this. “It gives the student the opportunity to basically get two terms done in one term. For example, you can take CS-90 and CS-91 consecutively. Normally it would take two terms,” said Jenkerson.

BOSTON: Students help bigger community

Continued from Page 1

This project is a large one and the students in the group are putting a lot of their personal time into making it happen. Why did they decide to do this project instead of something simpler? “We originally wanted to put a solar panel ray on the house of a needy family, but then two weeks into the term the Boston Marathon event happened,” said Matic. “We basically saw that people needed help and funds, and we just changed our gears and put all the effort towards helping those people out.”

He continued, “We are doing it to show national community and to show that even though Boston is on the other side of where we are, it’s still our duty as a national community to help each other out.” Matic isn’t the only student on the team that feels obligated to help beyond the local community. They all feel the same way, including Michael Malmberg. “It’s everyone’s responsibility to help those in need,” said Malmberg. Other activities at the event will include a paddle race, live acoustic music, potato sack and egg spoon races for kids

All of the proceeds are going to The One Fund Boston, in order to “raise money to help those families affected by the tragic events that unfolded during the Boston Marathon,” according to the informational flier provided by The One Fund Boston. This last Saturday, May 11, there was a run for Boston in St. Paul, Oregon. Proceeds will also be allocated through The One Fund Boston. “We have kind of the same goal. Some people from

our group are going to that to support it,” said Matic.

Decadence, idealism and social upheaval lead to screen spectactular... Gatsby regains popularity through Baz Luhrman’s masterful retelling


Breanna Craine Arts & Culture Editor

In 1923, F. Scott Fitzgerald began planning his work “The Great Gatsby.” It was done in a desire to create in his words, “something new — something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned.” After revisions and uncertainty concerning the title, “The Great Gatsby” was published in April of 1925. The book sold poorly (only 20,000 copies the first year) and was subject to mixed reviews. Fitzgerald died in 1940, believing himself a failure and that his work would be forgotten. After World War II, Fitzgerald’s work gained popularity and in the following years was incorporated into high school curriculum across the nation. “The Great Gatsby” has since been considered one of America’s all time best work’s of literature and without protest fits the bill of a “Great American Novel.”

“The Great Gatsby,” written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, was originally puvblished by Scribner’s in 1925 with dust cover artwork illustrated by Francis Cugat. Copies are available through for as low as $4.

Where the Legend Began

The roaring 20s were probably the best time to live in before the stock market crashed. There was prohibition which resulted in the illegalisation of alcohol that started the creation of speak easies and parties full of bootlegged alcohol and moonshine. Originally a novel, “The Great Gatsby” was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1925. The book was not a success until after WWII. Fitzgerald became more famous after he had died. The book highlights the fun and carefree world that the 20s seemed to be like. I had read the novel in high school and I thought it was the best book I have read. It is considered one of the best classics in American literature. There have been many movies made after the book was written. The first movie was actually a silent film that came to theaters a year after it was written. I walked into the movie theater last weekend excited to watch Leonardo DiCaprio in a love story. When I had watched the commercials, the movie sounded like it would be a 1920s version of “Project X” with some romance involved. The 3D movie began, but most of the film was not in 3D which I thought was a little strange. Former “Spider-Man” actor Toby Maguire plays handsome Nick Carraway who befriends Gatsby. The film starts off as Carraway is writing down how he met Gatsby. Gatsby is played by DiCaprio who is most famous for playing Jack Dawson in “Titanic.” Gatsby is known for throwing the best parties in his mansion but no one knows why he throws them. He has an underlying meaning to why he throws these fabulous gatherings and the further along in the film we get, the more understanding we gain. He is a very private man but when he meets his new neighbor Carraway, he opens up to him about the love he had lost. No one knows how he inherited so much money since he had grown up extremely poor. Making and selling bootlegged alcohol was a big business back then and people could make real good money from it. The love of his life, Daisy Buchanan, was married to Tom Buchanan, a rich man of “old” money while Gatsby was from “new” money. They live across the bay from each other in New York City. The whole film is their fight to be together. The movie, in my opinion, showed the fabulous side of the 20s, where everyone was rich and having fun. The cars seemed too fake, however. Maybe it was the 3D or maybe they wanted it to seem cartoonlike, but I did not like it. The opening of the film was confusing to me. It went back and forth from the future to the past and I had trouble knowing which was which. The love story was amazing. I almost cried at the end because love like that does not exist anymore. People may not want to see this movie because it is considered a classic, but this is a must-see movie. The acting is amazing and the parties are huge. Go and check out either the novel or the many movies that have been created.

Students treated to fancy feast at Linn-Benton Community College Jesse Henninger The Clackamas Print Last Friday I was on a field trip for one of my classes. We traveled all the way down to Linn-Benton Community College in Albany. It was an exceptionally hot and humid day. After the first seminar, I was losing enthusiasm for our venture and decided to skip the second session altogether, favoring a stroll around campus in

the fresh breeze and intermittent shade. It was a much appreciated respite from the dullness and sweat I would have endured in my intended engagement. I strolled around and people watched and took some photos. To round off my mini-adventure, I enjoyed some 99 cent nachos courtesy of the Linn-Benton book store. They were just enough to stimulate my appetite. Next stop: the Linn-Benton Commons Cafeteria. I was greeted by a friendly, well-groomed staff member and was pointed toward lunch.

Directions to the food were not necessary, as my nose found the scent of something delicious and carried me to my potential meal. When I first saw all the choices I was slightly overwhelmed. Selections were many: first was a full pizza station with all of the usual toppings. Next the salad bar: I was underwhelmed by its generic offerings. Although at 40 cents per ounce, it’s nothing to complain about. At last, I neared the daily main entree station. Four selections stood before me, all of them hoping to be chosen: • Chicken marbella with two sides $5.95 • Beef chili with cornbread and one side $5.75 • Vegetable egg rolls with tofu and one side $4.95 • Fettuccine with nostrana sauce $3.25. I opted for the fettucine with nostrana sauce. I completed my meal with a pint of Darigold chocolate milk and some dessert. The dessert selection was

incredible — at least six or seven different choices. I decided on two gluten free chocolate cupcakes with strawberry cream filling. I do not suffer celiac disease, nor am I riding on the wildly popular gluten free bandwagon. I did, however, think that the gluten-savvy women in my class, to whom I gave the cupcakes, would give a more qualified review. They were tickled. The fettucine with nostrana sauce was pretty good. Nostrana sauce is a simple, rue-based tomato sauce, a building block on which many savory pasta sauces are created. I very much enjoyed this uncomplicated presentation. The noodles were a little softer than al dente, which I prefer, and the sauce was not overbearing, nor over portioned. Served very nicely in an oval shaped stainless steel serving dish along with a soft dinner roll. The best part was the moment the lady rang up my order. Everything on my tray totaled


a mere $5.90. At that rate, even a less-than accomplished athome chef can kiss away the Top Ramen and Kraft Mac & Cheese. These prices are quite competitive, compared to CCC where I pay $6 for a cinnamon roll and a pint of milk. LinnBenton Community College knows what’s up when it comes to great food at a fantastic price.

Technique of the week: Softball fast pitch The Clackamas Print features a step by step breakdown of techniques from different sports. Players and coaches give their experienced advice and explain the developmental process of building competitive tools.

Baldovino on pitching: “Pitching is really a mental game. You have to go in there and have confidence in yourself and your team.”

Baldovino on technique:

Photos by Andrew Millbrooke The Clackamas Print

“Underhand is a lot different than overhand. It’s hard to throw overhand since I’m always doing underhand. The first wind up I just want to throw hard. You want to have fast arm speed so you can pitch fast. You want to make sure and have good velocity on your snap and then following through. I want to make sure and do my wrist snap well, so that I have movement.” That’s the type of pitcher that I am, I move the ball around.” — Compiled by Andrew Millbrooke

Saturday night fights!

Full Contact Fighting Federation

The older I get and the more sports at varying levels that I watch, the more it makes me realize how much of sports are about family. Sports are not like a family, they are family. Nowhere is that more true than at Clackamas Community College’s small campus. The athletic department at CCC is filled with long time employees that love what they do and do it with a family atmosphere and pride that shows. Thirty-year veteran volleyball coach Kathie Woods takes the maternal role and assistant men’s basketball and women’s softball coach Paul Fiskum deserves the paternal role on tenure alone. Both of these longtime coaches have had success on the field or court, but their real success can be measured by the family atmosphere they have fostered at Clackamas. Fiskum, a health and physical education teacher and coach at Clackamas since 1976, was also an athlete on the basketball team in the early 70s. Fiskum has been an assistant coach on the football team – when CCC last had one in the early 80s – and currently assists for men’s basketball and women’s softball. Fiskum had his most success as head softball coach for 19 seasons. His squads won eight NWAACC titles and four runner-up trophies. He also assisted on two men’s basketball NWAACC champions, giving him 10 career championships. Woods has earned some impressive accolades in her long volleyball coaching career at CCC that began in 1983. Woods recently passed the 700 career win mark, best in league history and she has been named NWAACC coach of the year three times. Woods was a volleyball and softball player at Oregon State University before beginning her teaching and coaching career. Woods has taught swimming, racquetball, health and first aid in addition to her volleyball coaching duties. Woods preaches a philosophy of “100 percent in school, volleyball and life” that seeps into her athletes. I saw Woods’ influence on her players during an up and down volleyball season this past year, noticing the deep emotion her players felt for their coach. Many players got choked up talking about Woods’ influence on their lives after the final home game. Baseball head coach Robin Robinson is another long time legend on the athletic department staff as he has been teaching and coaching at CCC since 1990. The real family bond that ties it all together can be found in an actual family, husband and wife duo Jim and P.J. Martineau. Jim, named CCC Athletic Director in 2009, played basketball at Clackamas from 1989-91 and returned to work in the athletic department almost 20 years ago. P.J. has been the athletic academic adviser for the past 14 years, while serving as assistant women’s basketball coach and recruiting coordinator. In team sports you need to have that family bond to succeed. It’s easy to see why so many CCC teams have successful seasons when you see the foundation of family that it all stands on. And as I’ve watched games of different sports all season, the one constant was family in the stands, rooting and cheering on their own. Without family, sports just wouldn’t be what they are.

This week, Clackamas sophomore pitcher Lucy Baldovino discusses fast pitch softball pitching technique. In the Cougars final home game of the regular season Baldovino shut down Clark CC to one hit over seven innings in a 7-0 win, striking out 16 batters in the process.

Another action packed night of cage fights will take place in downtown Portland this Saturday on Burnside at The Roseland Theater as the Full Contact Fighting Federation hosts Rumble at the Roseland 71. Back in January, Katie Howard became the FCFF Women’s Junior Flyweight Champion when she defeated Kyra Batara by Unanimous Decision in the main event of Rumble at the Roseland 69. Howard’s upcoming opponent, Emily Corso, earned the title of Women’s Flyweight Champion after defeating Emily Whitmire via armbar at Rumble 65 in August. Pitting champ against champ, the match is sure to be full of fireworks. Howard is a very fast and dexterous fighter. She has pinpoint accuracy and solid conditioning. She will need to use her technique and quickness to her advantage against her larger, more powerful opponent. Howard will be eager to bounce back with a win after her last tough match against another larger opponent Robin Woods. Woods won the 130 pound super fight at Rumble 70 in March with

a controversial power bomb slam knockout. When Woods picked up Howard and slammed her to the mat, her head collided with Howards’ face, head butting is against the rules in mixed martial arts competitions and to win in such fashion is generally not desirable. The match between Howard and Corso should be an amazing battle as the clash of the titles erupts. Corso has an amateur record of 3-0 with all three wins by submission. Five more title fights are in store for Saturday evening. The 185 pound division championship will be decided between current title holder John Simon and the challenger Jose Rodriguez. In other bouts; Super heavyweight Ricky Alcaraz returns against Casey Lunzman. Heavyweights Tyree Fortune and Russell Tunes will square off. The women’s 205 title will be contested by Myndi Stalnaker and Hillary VanOrnum. Current 135 pound champ Journey Newson will defend his title against Brent Messineo. — Compiled by David Beasley

Track teams excel at multi-events Track and Field

Photos by Andrew Millbrooke The Clackamas Print

The Clackamas Community College men’s and women’s track and field teams both took second place at the Southern Region Championships at Lane in Eugene on Saturday as the Titans took down the men’s and women’s titles on their home track. The Cougars are focused on bigger hardware at the NWAACC Championships on May 20-21 in Spokane, Wash. Clackamas had many event winners and some very impressive marks during the meet. The women won both the 4x100 and 4x400 relays as many athletes scored in multiple events, showing a diversity of skills. Sprinter Nettie Wayne anchored both victorious relays and placed third in the 200 (25.94) and fourth in the 100 (12.33). NWAACC heptathlon champion Elizabeth Venzon came back strong to win the high jump (5-3.25) and place third in the long jump (17-0.5) and fourth in the triple jump (35-7.75). Long Beach State signee Tiffany Forbito, fresh off of a fourth place finish in the NWAACC heptathlon, ran a leg on the winning long relay, while placing second in the 400 hurdles (1:05.87) and javelin (121-1). Lexie Govert, fifth in the heptathlon last week, ran on the winning short relay while placing second in the 400 (1:01.85) and third in the javelin (121-0). Cia Bywater won the women’s 1,500 in an impressive 4:50.22. D’Nara Jones, Tia Fuller, Taylor Ballard and Randi Chance all ran a leg on one of the victorious relay races while placing in other events. On the men’s side, Austin Collins lowered his school record

in the 800 meters by three-tenths of a second, running all alone to a time of 1:50.56 to win by more than six seconds. Collins also ran a leg on the Cougars’ second place 4x400 relay team. The Cougar men also placed second in the 4x100 relay. Short relay runners Jake Cleverly placed second in the 200 in 22.51 while Thomas Sutherland nabbed third in the 100 in 10.86. Shelby Grubb ran legs on both relays while finishing third in the 400 hurdles (58.01) and seventh in the 100 (11.21). A.J. Dickson led a Clackamas sweep of the top three spots in the men’s triple jump with a leap of 47-1.75. Deontre Curry (46-9) and David Hilts-Hoskins (45-5.25) were right on Dickson’s heels in second and third. Matt Brown won the hammer throw with a toss of 152-6 and placed third in the shot put (39-7). Joey Haynes scored in all three throwing events, placing second in the shot put (41-5.25), third in the hammer (147-7) and fourth in the discus (122-8). Daniel Fauss soared 15-3 for third place in the pole vault, while Chase Davis cleared 14-7.25 for a fifth place tie. Mark Medgin and Austin Peila ran well to finish second and third in the 1,500 in 4:07.00 and 4:07.84. Team Scores: Men – Lane 335.5, Clackamas 182.5, Mt. Hood 80.5, Clark 63, Treasure Valley 53, Southwestern Oregon 47.5. Women – Lane 277, Clackamas 166, Mt. Hood 136.5, Treasure Valley 86, SW Oregon 41.5, Clark 20.

The Cougars sophomores were honored after their final home game, but Silvius said the emotion won’t hit her until they walk off the field for the last time. “I feel like our last games will be more emotional,” said Silvius. “It’s our last home game, but once we get to the end, it will be more emotional.” That end comes up this weekend with the NWAACC tournament. Silvius said that the Cougars have a good

chance to go deep in the tournament again this year. “I feel like we are pretty confident. We need to make sure we’re not overconfident,” said Silvius. “We have potential to get to the end again like we did last year.” The Cougars, 2012 NWAACC Champions, will be at Delta Park in Portland for the 2013 NWAACC Championships on May 17-20 to defend its title. With one week to prepare, the Cougars

are ready for NWAACCs. They are ready to take it easy, according to coach Buel. “We’re just going to have some fun,” said Buel. “It kinda sounds funny, but we’ll have some practice hitting live and then we just kind of goof around and play competitions and try to keep it loose so that we go into the tournament loose. It’s the approach we took last year and it seemed to work, so we thought we’d go with that again this year.”
