Do you know what your options are at COCC ? Kirsteen Wolf The Broadside The list of academic programs that COCC offers is impressive. When all the community colleges are compared, COCC is in keeping with those around the state and even has some programs that are not widespread, like the Geographic Information Systems Technology program, offered in only two other community colleges, Clackamas and Treasure Valley. COCC has other strong programs in massage therapy, nursing, business, forestry and early childhood education among others. See Page 6

A pedometer: The cheapest (effective) piece of exercise equipment you’ll ever buy. Justin King The Broadside We here in Deschutes County have reason to take pride. A quick visit to the Centers for Disease Control website’s county comparisons for obesity and diabetes show that

nationwide, we’re on top. The only other parts of the country to surpass our physical prowess were in the deserts of New Mexico and in western Colorado’s über-athlete terrain. See WALKING, Page 8
