CNCC has a variety of degrees students can pursue. Because of the school’s location in a small town, one program offered that is hard to find at most colleges is Horsemanship and Horse Management, informally known as the Horsemanship Program.
The fairly new Horsemanship program was started in the fall of 2007; in July 2008, Brandon Velie came to Rangely and became the program director.
Since then, Velie has taken charge, getting the program off its feet.
“Because the program is still very new we only have (five) students currently; however, the program is building momentum with every day, and I predict at least 15 incoming freshman for the fall of 2010,” says Velie. Right now, there are five women in the program, all freshmen.
Those in the program have the opportunity to either earn a two-year degree, an associate’s in horsemanship and horse management, or students can earn two different one-year certificates, one in horse management and another in horse training. › Continue reading

H1N1’s Local ImpactH1N1, commonly known as the “Swine Flu,” is becoming a pandemic, and has now made its way to Craig and Rangely. Though this worldwide scare is in Colorado, protection and prevention from this deadly flu is possible.
H1NI began in mid to late March and is still highly contagious. The pandemic is making its way around the world fast, and suspected cases are now in Craig and Rangely, including one residential student case on the CNCC-Rangely campus.
CNCC has taken a formal position about precautions to be taken as H1N1 arrives in both towns; click here to view the document outlining these precautions: › Continue reading
The Colorado Northwestern baseball team has lost an assistant coach in the early stages of the season, yet the program is still looking forward to a strong year.
Paul Fortunato resigned from the men’s baseball program during his second year as an assistant coach with head coach Tom Cassera. Fortunato decided to resign this past month due to personal reasons.
“We both had different views for the program,” states Fortunato. “I had ideas, as did (Cassera), but it is his program.”
Fortunato is a Rangely athlete who played baseball for CNCC from 2000-2003 after playing for Rangely High School from 1996-2000. He graduated from RHS in 2000 and received an associate of arts degree in 2003.
After coaching at the high school for three years, Fortunato decided to coach at Colorado Northwestern. He says that he wanted to make things that he never had as a player better for the program. He hoped to train and get the men ready for the teams in this conference. Fortunato explains that being a former student athlete at CNCC helped him to understand what the players now have to go through.
Although Fortunato resigned, he thinks that the season will be successful and is still willing to help players out if they want it.
“The team is going to be more solid than last year, but they know that they have more work to put in,” Fortunato says. “I apologize for any negativity I may have brought to the team, but if anyone needs help, I’m still here.” › Continue reading

Students coming from larger cities and towns may have just realized that this one stoplight town just isn’t cutting it when it comes to entertainment and activities. But many of you may not know the secret hiding spots that Rangely has to offer. › Continue reading
Certain students may be going absolutely crazy around here, because to you, Rangely just doesn’t have enough activities. Well, you are in luck! Only 20 miles away is a nature amusement park, and it is known as Dinosaur National Monument. This 210,000 acre chunk of land is a hiker’s haven.
By simply driving to Dinosaur, Colo. (on the way to Vernal) and driving two more miles to the east, you have reached your destination. You can also drive about 4 miles out of Rangely and take the Blue Mountain road. A green sign will say Blue Mountain, so you will know to turn right here. After traveling on this road for about 15 miles, you will come to the end of the road, so turn left, and drive about six more miles to get to the Monument.
Dinosaur National Monument isn’t only for hikers. Various activities are waiting for you to enjoy once you are in the Park. And since the weather is still nice, it is a great opportunity to enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. Plus, what is better than getting a little fresh air on the weekend? Plus, it is free to enter this park. No entry fee is required on the Colo. side, and a 10 dollar entry fee is requested per car on the Utah side. Either way, it is a free/cheap way to have fun › Continue reading

Whether you are new to Colorado or not, food is always a consideration when you travel out of town. And there is no place with a more exciting atmosphere, a better set of prices and more delicious food than at Texas Roadhouse in Grand Junction.
Students and locals in Rangely inevitably have to travel out of town for shopping or other reasons, and one of the two most common destinations is Grand Junction, the other, Vernal, Utah.
Texas Roadhouse has a lively atmosphere with music being played, food being sizzled on a fiery grill, and plenty of laughter occurring. When walking in, you will find an assortment of freshly cut steaks sitting in the window as proof that your meal will be cooked fresh and delicious. At your table, you will find a bucket of peanuts that you can dig your fingers into, and shortly thereafter, you will taste fresh rolls with a bit of cinnamon butter just begging to come home with you. › Continue reading
