  • An ice cream truck business that started in Alaska now serves homemade, organic treats from downtown Silver City. The Mint Chip offered WNMU students free ice cream and ice lollies (popsicles) during the Welcome Back Bash last Saturday night and will continue offering a 10% discount to WNMU students with ID.

    Owner Laura Aubry opened The Mint Chip in Silver City last September after she and her then-three-year-old daughter drove the operation down from The Last Frontier. She makes all the ice cream, fizzes and ice lollies herself with ingredients that are sourced as locally as possible. While her signature flavor is (you guessed it) mint chocolate chip, she also dishes up flavors made with freshly toasted coconut and Mimbres-grown berries.

    At 700 N. Bullard Street, The Mint Chip is open daily, except Mondays, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

  • Four LED stadium lights were installed at Ben Altamirano Field this week. They will provide 50-foot candlepower illumination for Mustang athletes.

  • Today, WNMU President Dr. Joseph Shepard revealed plans to transition the university to more sustainable energy sources. He said WNMU will source more than half of its power from sustainable sources, a goal which will be made possible through the proposed PNM Community Solar Direct project upon its review and approval from the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission. PNM Resources CEO Patricia Vincent-Collawn joined President Shepard for the announcement.

  • The WNMU Department of Community and Workforce Development offers hands-on career technical education in various fields, training students in computer repair, welding, construction, drone technology and more.

    Through the department’s associate degree and certificate programs, students hop on the fact-track to employment. Some learn to provide patient care as Certified Nursing Assistants. Others start toward careers as pharmacy technicians in WNMU’s board-approved training and education program. Computer technology students ready themselves for IT careers, while Programmable Logic Controller Technology students get schooled in programming the devices that power industrial equipment at plants and manufacturing facilities.

    Electrical technology students in this department cover the basics of the trade — from theory to wiring and estimating to building codes. Construction technology students graduate in two years with entry-level skills, and beginning welders spend a year learning site safety, industry practices, theory, applications, joining and cutting. In WNMU’s drone technology program, students gain proficiency to pass the FAA Part 107 Knowledge Test to become certified remote pilots.

  • WNMU undergraduate student Natalie Wood is researching food sustainability in Silver City. With help from professors, she used GIS to randomly select residences where she is in the process of administering anonymous surveys.

    Through analyzing the big-picture data collected through these surveys, Natalie aims to better understand and improve the current food issues that exist in this area. She’s specifically digging to learn what individuals think of services provided by local food pantries, namely The Commons: Center for Food Security and Sustainability. She’s also looking into where people would like to see food resources in the future.

    The WNMU Institutional Review Board approved this project for its ethical research methods with no anticipated risks and with far-reaching benefits like identifying local food services and opportunities.

    Natalie’s study of Silver City’s food sustainability depends on your participation, so if she knocks on your door, you can feel confident that opening it will benefit your community.
