The Fort Collins/Loveland Municipal airport is seeking a new airline carrier, following the October 29 service cancellation of Allegiant Airlines.

“Their scheduled service [will] end on October 29,” said airport operations manager Larry Mack. “Officially, they said it was an internal economic decision by the airline to leave,” he added.

Until recently, Allegiant airlines was the sole airline carrier for the Fort Collins/Loveland airport.

“Last year, about 50,000 people flew out of here on Allegiant,” Mack said, “so that’s who it’s going to affect.”

The airport is currently seeking a new airline company to take up its commercial airline services, however, Mack feels optimistic.

“It’s proven itself to be a good market,” Mack said. “Near term, we hope to have somebody in place by this time next year.”

Best of CSU: Tasty Harmony reveals how taste and health are intertwined

Agave nectar, cashew cheese, goji berries, irish moss and jackfruit may seem like foreign and non-edible fantasies out of a story book, yet between Oak and Mason, Tasty Harmony brings out true magic through creating healthy yet delicious meals using these unique foods.

“We really cater to any tricky diet,” said Erica Wilson, junior environmental engineering and international studies student. “You could call it vegan comfort food.” Wilson has been a server at the restaurant since last spring.

Through a plant-based menu, Tasty Harmony provides a positive eating experience to vegetarians, vegans, health conscious eaters and individuals whom have unique dietary restrictions.

“I love the atmosphere, and the food too,” Willson said. She is allergic to whey protein, which means she has to stick to a non-dairy diet. “I find myself only eating here sometimes it seems like. I’ve learned what I can supplement with. Its inspired me to experience within my own cooking at home.”

Through Tasty Harmony, she has discovered cashew milk, which is also created as a cheese substitute, used in many meals, such as nachos and the stuffed burrito on the menu.

“I was a vegetarian for six years and found it to be very challenging at times when I would go out to eat with friends or family and had limited choice on the menu,” said Taryn Gawronski, junior social work student. “Tasty Harmony brings relief to this problem because I could eat vegetarian while the people I was dining with also enjoyed their meal. Even people who aren’t vegetarian can appreciate it.”

With menu items like the Pulled BBQ Jack Fruit Sandwich—a natural spin on the original pulled BBQ sandwich, the Kentucky Fried Freedom—mock fried chicken with mashed potatoes, or the Bigboy Burger—a black bean and rice patty made into vegetarian-burger perfection, Tasty Harmony creates natural alternatives to many traditionally non-natural, meat-focused or dairy-filled meals.

“Its nice to know the food they are making back there has a passion and a purpose,” said LeAnn Knutson, senior environmental communication major. “The menu is being created with health and well being in mind and not just a bun slapped down to make money.” Knutson has been a server at the restaurant for a year and a half.

Along with serving food that is positive for the body, Tasty Harmony supports mainly local businesses for their ingredients. From vegetables from Grant Family Farms, the wellington-based organic farm, organic chai from Fort Collins based Café Richesse, and only local bakeries for their breads, cookies and desserts; the profit made at the restaurant is readily circulated back into Northern Colorado, according to Knutson. For all of the over-21 restaurant guests, the beer on tap includes only local Fort Collins beers in addition to Asher Brewery in Boulder, which is the only organic brewery in Colorado. In accordance to wine, the selection is purely from organic and sustainable vineyards. All of the supported businesses are featured in the restaurants menu.

“I think to be a successful restaurant in Fort Collins, you have to know and understand the community,” Gawronski said. “Fort Collins is big on organic and local support, Tasty Harmony is as well. When you have a restaurant that understands the community it serves, then it can be successful.”

Through healthy options, organic support and a vegetarian menu—some traditional diners may wonder what the draw is to alternative ingredients compared to a standard meat-and-milk meal experience.

“We get grown men coming in here kicking and screaming being brought in with their wives or girlfriends. They make awkward comments,” Knutson said. “Then they order the Jackfruit BBQ Sandwich or something and they are in heaven and are sold because they are more than just a vegetarian plate.”

For those budget crunching students, the lunch specials everyday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. give a way for everyone to experience the menu for around $7. The restaurant is open until 9 p.m. on weekdays, and until 10 p.m. on weekends. A special winter menu is in the works, complete with winter-available vegetables bringing in additional items such as a loaded stuffed yam, said Knutson.

The next time Saturday night rolls around and microwavable mac-and-cheese just doesn’t sound quite right—grab a little exercise walking to this great location for a healthy and satisfying meal. With no environmental and body-bearing guilt, this vegetarian dining experience won’t leave any herbivore or carnivore devourer searching for more.

“I think sometimes there is a stigma because someone hears vegetarian or vegan and people aren’t willing to try the food,” Wilson said. “But it’s important to remember it’s good tasting at the same time. Its just good food.”

Souled Out: I go where the snow blow

Snow enthusiasts understand the meaning of dedication.

Not only do they subdue hours on end in sub-thirty degree weather, but they are also willing to travel countless miles for the freshest powder.

But let us not forget the dedication we have for snow culture.

The X-games bring together some of the worlds most prestigious snow goers on this planet. Willing to hit the biggest jumps, throw the sickest tricks and risk their lives in the name of epic soul sports advancement is the reason we travel far and wide.

Having attended my first X-games last January 2011, I have a new-found respect for these thrill-seeking athletes.

I strongly recommend making it out to Aspen this January 24-27th, 2012 to witness everything from freestyle and big air to snowboarder x, slope-style and super-pipe. The television simply does not depict the magnitude of skill these adrenaline junkies embody.

Witnessing them throw down just 20 feet from you while the crowds cheer on in admiration and respect is life-changing.

You’re also given insight into the riders personalities and personal style. Shaun White kills it on the super-pipe while you couldn’t slap the smile off Luke Mitrani’s face.

They are doing what they love and it shows.

Don’t hesitate to start planning your trip now. Grab four or five friends, preferably one with a car, book a hotel and start saving some cash. While I’d sleep in my car all over again, you wont have to defrost your contact lenses from a hotel room in the morning.

Check out the video of Shaun White’s 100% victory lap at last years X-Games!
