There is a dilemma currently being spoken about amongst the student senate. Throughout 2011’s fall and spring semester, there has been an issue with hair in the cafeteria food. It is not uncommon to hear people speaking about their dinner having hair in it. Aleksei Sharp says, “It is very unappetizing and has been occurring for two years now.” He is a sophomore this year who lives off campus and also states, “I am very glad I don’t eat that food anymore.” Sharp proceeds to speak about the requirement of hair nets and how this same solution was produced last year but nothing was ever done about it.
I spoke with another one of CNCC’s student and this is what she had to say “I have found a hair in my food four or five times and it is disgusting.” Many of the students here and Colorado Northwestern Community College are hoping that some regulations and rules will be established and this article will shed light upon the unappetizing situation.
After researching the laws and regulations, according to a well accredited website, hair restraints are required but that does not mean they must wear full hair protection such as a hairnet. Though there is no law requiring full hair coverage, Aleksei Sharp says, “It would be courteous if the cafeteria staff would just wear the hairnets. After all, who wants hair in their food?”
According to an anonymous source, “I was sitting at the dinner table with Holli Skyles when she pushed her plate away from her and had an upset look on her face. When I asked her what was wrong she pointed in her soup where I saw a hair floating! To make matters worse, she had already eaten more than ¾ of the soup. That is nauseating if you ask me and the cafeteria staff should be required to wear hairnets.”
Everyone I have talked to understands that this is not a regulation but it is asked why the staff will still not wear hairnets even after the controversies at hand. As previously said by Aleksei Sharp, “…has been occurring for two years now.” The students interviewed for this article agree that it is unacceptable that nothing has been done about the hair issue yet.

According to the “Colorado Collegiate Handbook,” nearly every college and university in Colorado requires first year students to live in the residence halls, as well as have a meal plan. The problem is that, for some students, it may not be worth the some thousand dollars a semester that could be used for groceries.
Here at CNCC, students are not required to live in the residence halls, but with some students living so far away from home, it’s easier to live there than go through the hassle of finding a place in town. › 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
The kitchen isn’t so intimidating when someone or something makes food easy–and delicious. That is the goal of the Personal Trainer for cooking on the DS Nintendo game system. Students, it is a great help because there are strictly microwave-based recipes (though not many). But if you wanted to impress your friends off campus and get together for a dinner/movie night, you might borrow the kitchen and make up something that seems extravagant but really isn’t. › Continue reading
