Letter to the editor

Dear Editor,

    I read the February article: “RCC/SOU hold lock down in HEC.”

I’ve been through such drills on Portland Community College campuses. And I’ve seen the same thing attempt to be implemented across the nation in all our schools and colleges.

Submitted by the Sustainability Club on Redwood campus

RecycleMania is in full swing at Redwood Campus, and we’re competing against colleges across the nation to see who can recycle the greatest percentage of their waste. So far, RCC is in 3rd place for schools in Oregon, recycling 30.86 percent of our waste. This percentage is ok, but we can do better! The competition is happening until April 2nd and we could really use your help recycling to make this event a success.

There’s always hope: A look at homelessness and RCC

Look at the people around you in class. Now look at the instructor. After a term you might feel you know them, but would you be able to say if they are, or have ever been, homeless?

Jenny Jackson spent some of her teenage years stuffed into a singlewide trailer lacking electricity, sometimes with 15 to 20 other people. “It was a really dark and sad time in my life,” said Jackson, now the Associated Student Government advisor on Redwood campus. “I was really scared.”

Many others at RCC and in the Rogue Valley are currently in the same predicament as Jackson once was.

Open Mic

Yah, that’s right. Devon will be making a featured appearance at this month’s Open Mic, and back by popular demand is the comedic talent of the ever lovin Will Tippen.

Everything from acting and dancing to environmental activism. Also, if you have an idea on a club you might want to start, this would be a great time to talk to a student government representative and find out how.

A controversial medical marijuana measure could mean relief for the seriously ill and an estimated $20 million in revenue plus thousands of jobs for recession-whipped Oregon.
