Editor's note: CRDN Report will appear every four weeks.

Welcome to the second edition of the CRDN report which is a monthly column designed to keep you the reader aware of what is going on or what has gone on, at the Crescent City campus of College of The Redwoods.

For those that might have missed the first column let me briefly introduce myself: my name is Steven Bevier and I am one of two student senators that represent CRDN in the College of The Redwoods college district. I am also the president of the Literary Club and an active member of the A.S.B. Club.

So what has been going on lately at the campus?

On Dec. 1, the Eco Club (formerly the Natural Resources Club) hosted

an on-campus viewing and discussion of the movie "Who Killed the

Electric Car?" The movie was free to all members of the community and

refreshments were provided for those that attended the showing. Daelon

Davis, president of the Eco Club, said the turnout for the viewing was

more than organizers had hoped for with about 40 people attending all or

part of the movie.

The huge success of this first event put on by the Eco Club has the

members of the club looking forward to the upcoming spring semester,

when they can host more events. Some possible events being considered by

the Eco Club is a showing of "Revenge of The Electric Car" which is the

sequel to "Who Killed the Electric Car?" and a demonstration and

exhibiting of do-it-yourself clean energy devices. These events will be

open to the public and all are invited to attend. Stay tuned to this

column for more info about the dates of these events as it becomes


On Dec. 2 the Community Enrichment Club (CEC) hosted an on campus

viewing and discussion of the movie "Playing For Change." Playing For

Change is an organization that according to its website

( "is dedicated to creating positive social change

through music education. We are driven by the belief that peace and

change are possible through the universal language of music."

Mellissa Williams, president of the CEC, reported a mild turnout for

the showing of the movie. The CEC intends to host viewing and

discussions of other movies in the future, as it has done in past

semesters at the college. The CEC also has other projects in the works

but none have been confirmed as of this date.

On Dec. 6 the Literary Club at CRDN held the second of its

twice-a-semester used book sale. The Literary Club puts on the used book

sale so that these books that might well have ended up in landfills or

recycled can be put into the hands of people who want them. The proceeds

go to support two scholarships that the Lit Club offers, as well as

helping to offset the cost of producing "The Kerf," which is a

nationally distributed poetry magazine that is produced right here at


On Dec. the CRDN Holiday Chorale put on a special performance at Crescent Elk Middle School.

On Dec. 9, CRDN and English professor Ruth Rhodes hosted a free

dramatic reading of Jean Anouilh's "Antigone," which is based on a

Sophocles play.

It is refreshing to see that even in these trying economic times,

there is a way to go spend an enjoyable evening out with little or no
