Gibson named interim AD as school seeks new director

Laramie County Community College will be searching for a new Athletics and Campus Recreation director this spring after Scott Noble, who formerly held the position, left LCCC for the Director of Athletics job at Western New Mexico University.

“I want to say thanks for Noble’s time with us,” Judy Hay, vice president of Student Services, said. “He’s had three great years with us and I’m very thankful for that. It’s going to be a great place (LCCC) for someone to come in and somewhat pick up what he was doing.”

Part of being the Vice President of Student Services at LCCC, Hay said she oversees the athletic department and will be in charge of compiling a committee for the athletic director search this spring.

Saving a college dollar with less Chick-fil-A

Money is tight in college, especially during the month of January. I was paid at the end of Fall semester, before Christmas break, so in my mind I thought that money would be perfect for Christmas presents.

Then a bunch of new movies came out during break, so I had to go see them. However, with movies, popcorn and candy are essential because what is a movie without a snack?

Then, after receiving gift cards for Christmas, I would go take advantage of them; however, I have a problem with shopping. If everything fits, I must get it. Gift cards covered a lot, but I chose way more outfits than a few gift cards could cover. Then I see pairs of shoes that will go perfect with my new outfits.

Encouraging diversity, momentum with #MeToo movement

He smiled. She moved away. He touched. She moved farther away. He told her it was OK. She fought herself in her head. Was it ok? Is this normal? Consensual?

Am I part of #MeToo?

Women across the nation have found solace since the birth of the #MeToo movement, and it seems as though there is no intention of it ending anytime soon. Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer and others are paying the piper.

An inside look at 2 Doors Down

2 Doors Down is located in downtown Cheyenne at 118 E. 17th St. where owner Jerry Inniss believes the atmosphere of his restaurant is what sets it apart from the others in town.

College students are always looking for a good deal when it comes to food. 2 Doors Down has the answer when it comes to burgers.

Jerry Inniss and his wife Sandy started 2 Doors Down in 2009 when they found out the current location was coming available two doors down from their pizza restaurant, Pizzeria Venti.

“This space looked like it was going to come available, Sandy and I have always enjoyed burgers and we always found it difficult to find a good one in town,” Inniss said. “So, we thought that it might be something that we would like to do and basically with the pizza I used to make the buns and I would order burgers in and started creating recipes. When this space became available we just kind of decided to take the plunge and get it started.”
