Coming back on a tough week of games in northern and southern Idaho, the Spartans were looking for wins this week in Lamar, Colo. and Price, Utah. The Lady Spartans lost in two intense games while the men’s program struggled to find their offensive threats.
On Wednesday, Jan. 20, the Spartans traveled to Lamar to compete in a make-up game from first semester. › Continue reading
The recent tragedy in Haiti has garnered every reaction from just about everywhere on the planet.
China, the U.S., Great Britain, and even Iceland are sending relief efforts to the disaster-stricken island. People from everywhere send money to trusted charity organizations such as Red Cross and World Vision, which are also supporting the aid movement. But at the same time, people are doing what people always do when a tragedy of this magnitude strikes: They are looking for someone to blame. › Continue reading
The signs are around campus, and business cards are tucked safely away in poster pockets, all with the same message: become a Census taker, help the federal government, earn money.
Recruiting assistant for the Census Bureau and retired CNCC psychology instructor Kathleen Martynowicz administers the tests for applicants to qualify as Census takers, and she does it for a good reason.
“I’m a part of history,” she said.
She holds tests in Rangely once or twice a week, one test being held at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday at the CNCC Library. She also gives tests in Meeker and in Dinosaur. It takes about 30 minutes and goes over some basic reading and comprehension skills, as well as a little bit of math and some writing. › Continue reading
Building renovations have been underway in the W.C. Striegel Engineering Building, so named because of a $1 million donation by Rangely local W.C. “Bud” Striegel. The changes have been going on for a few months, and the building isn’t far off from being finished.
“According to the (CNCC) staff, we can’t build fast enough,” Project Manager Cheryl Slaymaker said. “It has been difficult for them to conduct classes at temporary locations. They are excited to use the building.” › Continue reading
One half vampire, one half human, Magiere is a Dhampir, a rare find in a world filled with superstitious and dark individuals. For most of her life she has been a con artist, playing at a game that is much more serious than she knows. She has no clue about her real heritage, or that she was born to kill vampires.
Magiere is teamed up with a half-elf named Leesil and a large dog-like companion, Chap. For years they have gone around camping most nights and exploiting the superstitious, who believe they have a vampire in their midst. Leesil fakes that he is a vampire and Magiere deftly “kills” him, while Chap guards their camp site. › Continue reading
Imagine a tree that is the size of the Empire State Building with the circumference of Times Square. Along with the huge size of the tree, bright and vivid colors will pierce your eyes. Every detail of this tree will pop off the screen, stamp your brain with greatness, and make you remember it forever.
The film “Avatar” starts out in a place called Pandora, which is a lush moon. Sigourney Weaver, who plays Grace in the film, acts as a biologist who is teaching Marines about all the unique plants, animals, and insects in this unknown place. Sam Worthington, who plays Jake in the movie, and another biologist named Norm, played by Joel Moore, get the privilege of becoming Navi, or natives of Pandora. They are all part of the Marines, and their main goal is to mine Pandora’s precious resources. › Continue reading
Only a month into the semester, and many Spartans are already worn down by the daily grind of classes and extracurricular obligations. New Year’s resolutions are beginning to lose their shine and fade into the ever present “to do” pile of life. With a whole three months left until summer, the break is so close and yet so far.
It seems to be the little things in college life that keep campus-bound students maintaining their composure amidst financial frustration, the occasional bout of homesickness, and the complexities of college kids’ love lives.
For the midnight study soldier, the basketball play maker, the lovers and losers, the graduates with the goal just within sight, this edition of Ask Angel goes out to you…keep on pushin.’ › Continue reading
CNCC needed someone to help in the Information Technology department, and new Technical Support Analyst Thomas Chapman answered the call, beginning his work at CNCC on August 5, 2009.
Chapman has a lot of responsibilities and he works mostly on the Craig campus, the most important being to ensure that the technology “appropriately serves the needs of the staff, faculty and students here on campus so that they can be as productive as possible,” he said.
“He’s very easy to work with,” IT director Bonnie Rose said. “I think he gets along very well.” She added that he is doing well as far as catching up on learning all the ins and outs of the network and that his varied background is impressive. › Continue reading
During the first two weeks of the Spring semester, new and returning students were welcomed by a week’s worth of student activities provided by the CNCC Student Housing staff as well as Student Senate.
The world community responds to destruction in Haiti
On Tuesday, Jan. 12, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the island nation of Haiti, devastating the tranquil capital city of Port au Prince as well as other cities and small villages throughout the country.
U.S. Ambassador Raymond Alcide Joseph calls the massive amount of damages to homes and business, as well as the immense loss of life, “a catastrophe.” › Continue reading
