Umpqua Community College is proposing a $57 million renovation and expansion of its campus.
If a bond measure were to pass on May 15, the college would be positioned financially to add two multipurpose classroom facilities to its campus in Roseburg, and build a classroom structure in south Douglas County.

“We want to make sure we’re providing students with opportunities to train on the stuff they will be encountering when they have a job,” said Bentley Gilbert, marketing director for UCC. “In the current (arts) building, they’re shoulder to shoulder. And they’re just in classrooms – they need to have access to simulation labs and other facilities.”

The two of us, mother and child, were participating in a new teen rite of passage: Instead of handing over the car keys, I handed over a car-sharing card — with the caveat that she not use the gift as her own personal car service.

Everyone knows cell phones and driving are a lethal combination. The risk is especially high for teenage drivers, whose delusions of immortality pose such a threat to us all. Enforcement alas, remains feeble; more promising are pedagogical approaches aimed at getting people to focus on the road, not their devices.
