Culinary makes it on Kasa By Rene Thompson


Daniel Johnson, Kerry Logan and Amanda Scott showcase homemade vanilla bean ice cream.

Scott is also a supervisor and shift manager on the food truck, she said. “It’s to get more CNM culinary exposure, and that we have a culinary school here. I like that the food truck is consistent work experience for our students and it’s a paid internship,” Scott said. The experience that students get from the food truck is much like real restaurant experience, so that students learn how fast-paced it really can be serving people and that chefs really have to think on their feet, she said. The truck also changes the menu, sometimes even day to day, depending on if a student’s new recipes are being incorporated, or if there are leftover supplies not used by students in culinary classes, she said. “We are trying to be sustainable, so if we have a whole bunch of berries leftover, we might just do a smoothie day and the students are making new menu items that we are slowly putting on the truck,” Scott said. Logan said that even Johnson’s candied bacon recipe was in the segment as a topping for the vanilla bean ice cream, which she said that the grouping of sweet and salty is a dynamite combination. For more information on these recipes or to watch the 2 Kasa This Morning clips, go to or the Chronicle site at thecnmchronicle.

“It depends on where it comes from in the world, like gelato, Italian (ice), and granitase, so it just depends on where you are at,” adding, “Americans— we love our ice cream!” Logan said the trio did two different segments with recipes and explained the variances of some frozen desserts. “We talked about the differences first between sorbet and sherbet, and then the second segment was on ice cream and gelato,” Logan said. Scott said they would love to keep doing different segments as long as they are invited back, and that she hopes to get the Street Food Institute food truck on the show, as 2 Kasa This Morning has a food truck Fridays segment where they showcase local food trucks on the program.

AWS Student Chapter

Welding club builds stronger frame for students By Daniel Johnson Investigative Reporter

Editor in Chief

Culinary instructors Kerry Logan and Amanda Scott got to share some of their favorite recipes for homemade ice cream and sorbet treats in the wee hours of the morning on a segment for 2 Kasa This Morning. Wednesday, June 11 these chefs, as well as Culinary major and reporter for the Chronicle Daniel Johnson educated early bird audiences on easy to make frozen treats. It was the first time a student joined instructors on a local segment, which Scott and Logan said they do for the culinary program from time to time to promote what culinary has to offer to prospective students. “A lot of people don’t know we exist, so it’s nice to get on there,” Logan said. The instructors made coconut lime sorbet and vanilla bean ice cream, which students will be learning about in the coming weeks, Scott said. “It was pretty neat; it was a challenge to work in somewhat of a fake kitchen, so you kind of have to (adapt),” she said. Logan said that there are many different types of frozen desserts and that the classifications are usually based on where they originated, the type of ingredients, and the process that they go through when being made.


The American Welding Society sets the national standards for all things welding and is a highly respectable origination throughout many of the careers that are available to students in the applied technologies program at CNM, said Welding major and President of the AWS Student Chapter, Henno Van Arkel. Students must be enrolled in welding classes and pay a $15 fee to be members of the CNM AWS chapter, he said. “Fifteen dollars is a small price for someone like me to pay to receive all the knowledge and opportunities that come with being a member of this group,” Van Arkel said. Being a member offers many benefits, such as an emailed version of the monthly AWS publication, as well as scholarships and networking opportunities, along with many other prospects for welding students, he said. Welding major and Communications Coordinator of the AWS, Genevieve Brechtel said the club participates in field trips, as well as presentations by guest speakers and different types of special projects. “We as students and members of the AWS helped with the construction of the smoking shelters that are going to be placed at different locations throughout the CNM main campus,” she said. The group is also involved with community service projects, she said. One of the projects that AWS will host is going to have eighth graders come to CNM and learn about the basics of welding and how to read blueprints, Brechtel said. Metals Technology major and Secretary of AWS, Zach Lopezsaid members of the club helped out with the

state Skills USA competition this past spring. “I was able to make sure the machines that were being used stayed operational throughout the competition, as well as making sure the students had all the stuff they needed to compete,” he said. The AWS Student Chapter will also be helping with the Applied Technologies Boot Camps that CNM will be offering in June and July for local high school students, Lopez said. Metals Technology major and Historian of AWS, Elliot Reddinger said the club also ran the welding simulators for the high school students that came to CNM main campus for Career Technical Education Day. “The welding simulators are pretty cool because they are like 3-D games that are scored based on how well a person welds,” he said. Trying to get welding students to come together and participate as a whole is another objective of the club, he said. Reddinger said welding can be really competitive but that the club wants the students to know that while they are here they are like a family. A fellow student might be somebody’s main competition for a job after they leave school, but while students are in school they should be able to learn and feed off of each other to become the best welders that they can be, he said. “We have raffles and get togethers, like barbeques for the welding program as a whole, so students can have an opportunity to get to know their peers,” Reddinger said. Van Arkel said the club allows students an opportunity to network with local and state employers. “It’s nice because you don’t only get the opportunity to know what job opportunities

are out there you actually get to meet the people that hire employees on a one-toone basis,” he said. If a student is motivated then this club can help to make the roll over to the real world easier, he said. Reddinger said a person has to be involved with other things outside of just working hard in the classroom. “Employers don’t just want to see good grades anymore, they want to be able to see that a student is committed to their trade and involved with it,” he said. When students graduate they want to be on top and a student needs to be able to have the ability to say that they did something extra— this club will allow a student to do that, he said. It is a really great opportunity for anyone who wishes to do more with his or her life then just have a possible job after graduation, he said. Brechtel said the AWS student chapter has seen its up and downs due to the turnover rate, because of students graduating and moving on. “We would love to see more students come in and participate on a regular basis, so that the club does not see big one year (of participation), then little the next, we want a more consistent flow of students through the club,” she said. Lopez said the club has meetings every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. in the W building on Main campus and everyone is invited to come check it out. “Even if you are not in the applied technologies program you can come and check us out to see if it is something you might want to get into,” he said.

Albuquerque Trolley Company shares its love for Burque By Nick Stern Copy Editor

The Albuquerque Trolley Company has taken on the responsibility of being the first tourist attraction that many visitors see or participate when they arrive in the city of Albuquerque, said Jesse Herron, Co-owner of the Albuquerque Trolley Company. The Trolley Company gives everyone in the community and tourists a chance to see the different and interesting locations and activities that Albuquerque has hidden throughout the city, which helps people to get a general understanding of the city’s layout by touring the Best of Albuquerque City Tour, Herron said. “It is a pretty big responsibility and we are kind of like the welcome wagon, so we feel like we are doing good for the city and we are representing Albuquerque as ambassadors,” Herron said. The company has its box office location where tickets can also be purchased, located inside the Hotel Albuquerque in Old Town, at 800 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, he said. All ticket prices for special tours, such as the (Breaking) Bad tour, the Albucreepy Halloween tour and Microbrew tours, are $40 to $65, with general admission city tour at $25 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under, Herron said. The Albuquerque Trolley Company is co-owned by Jesse Herron and Mike Silva who said they run their company with pride and confidence, having chosen to reflect those feelings in the way that they market themselves. “We realize that we are often a visitor’s first impression of Albuquerque. We market ourselves as the best first thing to do in Albuquerque, so we take it very seriously,” he said.

Jesse Herron said that is the best place to get tickets beforehand and can also be used to get all the up-todate times, dates and even newsletters that come out every couple of weeks for people who choose to sign up. The city tours do a great job of giving people an understanding of what is where in Albuquerque and why it is interesting, Herron said. The tours educate visitors about the city and have also taught many folks how much fun can actually be had which has led to people’s views switching from PHOTO COURTESY OF JESSE HERRON negative opinions to positive ones, ABQ Trolley owners, Jesse Herron and Mike Silva, take trolley tours Herron said. seriously. “Hop on board with us for like an hour and a half for the City Tour misconception is one of the reasons experienced and believes it to be the and we will give you the lay of the land that motivated Herron and Silva best attraction the city has to offer to and a lot of times people are saying ‘wow, to create the Albuquerque Trolley tourists and locals alike, he said. we had no idea there was so much to do Company, Herron said.

The CNM Chronicle | 3 EDITORIAL Trust when something is too good to be true By the Chronicle Editorial Board The Know Now Mobile Medical Clinic coming to CNM campuses, which is offering free STD and pregnancy testing, as well as ultrasounds, may just be too good to be true. The chronicle covered in the Mobile Medical Clinic story ‘Mobile unit provides free STD testing,’ in Issue 35 of Volume 19, but it has come to light exactly what kind of company is offering these services and why. It is great there is a service that provides these benefits to struggling students for free, but there may be a catch when students go for pregnancy tests, as the organization that provides these services called Care Net is in fact an Evangelical Christian crisis pregnancy center. According to, Care Net is an anti-abortion organization that seeks to persuade women not to terminate their pregnancies, hence the free ultrasounds. The organization was founded in 1975 in Northern Virginia, and is the nation’s largest network of pregnancy centers with 1,100 throughout the country, according to the site. In addition to advising customers against abortions and free STD testing, Care Net does provide a slew of other resources such as baby supplies, temporary shelters, employment and debt guidance, as well as Bible study

sessions that fit with the company’s values, the site stated. Women that believe in the right to choose what happens to their bodies, might get offended by the Care Net service provider while getting a pregnancy test, because Care Net has been known to attempt to dictate what women plan to do with the rest of their lives and their unborn child, or women with pro-life values might just find it refreshing. Care Net’s mission statement on their website at said “With the support of Care Net and its network of pregnancy centers, people facing unplanned pregnancies are choosing life and hope every day.” Care Net has also been known to speak out against abortion clinics and set up near clinics such as Planned Parenthood that provide abortion services. Care Net protests both out front of Planned Parenthood, and have signs in front of their clinics that say “Pregnant? Considering abortion? Free services,” according to the Care Net Wikipedia page. The Planned Parenthood website states that whether clients want to keep or abort their fetuses, the clinic provides women with the resource choices they would have for either scenario, without any influence on the client’s

decision and just counsels women on what is out there for them to utilize. According to, “Once inside the facility, women are subject to manipulative tactics, such as required ultrasounds and readings of religious literature that instill guilt and shame in those who may consider abortion. These types of centers seek to undercut the law and restrict a woman’s right to choose.” So, if some women students out there want to utilize Care Net’s free pregnancy or ultrasound, be warned that the unit volunteers may try to persuade you under the guise of caring, but when it comes down to it the only person you need to listen to is yourself. For those female students that would rather skip the judgments and religious/ethical debate, or the belittling of your own prochoice beliefs; you may just want to pay the $10 pregnancy test fee at Planned Parenthood or the $65 for an ultrasound. Not only for peace of mind, but also so that you will avoid being made to feel like an asshole or slut shamed for doing what millions of women did before you and will do for years to come, which is to get pregnant and not know what to do.
