By Mark Gray news editor The Signpost A restaurant is an establishment where one usually consumes food. When we go to a restaurant, not only should we. take into account the food served, but also the environment, price and little things that make the place unique. In its efforts to keep students and faculty of Weber State University in the know. The Signpost has been frequenting local restaurants to give our readers a taste of vkiUVi.c,'J'tuCao"!iftfcnts are uke. The restaurants visited don't exactly fit in the same class as La Caille, Mullboon's or the Timbermine. They fit into a different class. They are what many people callhole-in-the-wall, or independent restaurants. These types of establishments are loved by many people, not frowned upon. And they are affordable for WSU students. Taco Taco The taco so nice they named it twice. At 2931 Washington Blvd., this eatery serves authentic Mexican food. Taco Bell never made it this way. Nonly is the food authentic, the environment is too. Mexican music plays overhead, the menu is written in Spanish, copies of Mexican publications are available in news racks at the door and the walls are plastered with rugs and photos. The restaurant has six four-seat tables to go along with the 1 1 stools at the counter, and the kitchen is about the size of a restroom stall. Most of the food is served ala carte with the exception of a few combination platters. Made from original recipes, the food is wonderful. The tacos are excellent and the chips come out sizzling when chips and salsa are ordered. "It has good food, good prices," said bookstore employee Kay Chapman. 'The people are really nice too." Horchata, or rice milk, is available here. One customer describes it as tast- lft B ,; . 1 - ;....,,,., . Wi; ,1 v. .f ,v a- 9. t.

The Cafe opened in 1929 and has a regular clientelle. ing "like the milk tastes after you eat Cinnamon Toast Crunch." The average price of a combination meal is roughly $6 and ala carte items range from $1.50 to $3. Snappy Service Cafe Quite possibly the most unique place in Ogden, it sits on the corner of 2650 S. Washington Blvd. Rarely seen with its door closed during business hours, the open door is like an invitation for people to come in. Not only is it unique, it is also small. There are 12 counter stools and three tables inside. Signs that say things like "Homemade chili $1.50 just like your mother made" and "Standard-Examiner" articles about the cafe from 1980 and 1982 hang on the walls. The cafe opened in 1929. Nearly everything is original. The recipes, the floor, the milk machine, the Fair's ice cream machine andthe coffee cups have been there since the beginning, said Karen Smith, the owner of Snappy Service Cafe. Even the grill plate they cook on is nearly three-quarters of a century old, she said. 'They keep telling me that plate is going to give out one day," Smith said. Menu items include hamburgers, breakfast items and chicken fried steak. All are homemade recipes. They'll even put onions in the meat of the hamburger if a customer wants. To prove this place is truly old school, they don't even have a phone. ' "In fact, people tried to put a pay phone out front and it wasn't used at all," Smith said. 'Today everybody has a cell phone anyway." Phones may not be ringing in the cafe.

"I'm a strong supporter of Weber State," Hatch said. "I'm a great sports enthusiast. Continuing his campaign across Utah higher education campuses. Hatch arrived at WSU at noon to help his 50 or so volunteers greet game attendants as they entered Stewart Stadium. Volunteers clad in purple. WSU-spirited. "Orrin's Army" T-shirts passed out Oreo cookies, dipped in milk chocolate dubbed as "Orrin-Os" with ingredients such as "honesty, integrity, dedicated, principled." About 1.000 cookies and 500 fliers were given out for a crowd of 4,879. Prvnn Mnmhlin rip intprn fnr Hnfrh'g Campus crime sfafs made By Tanna Barry managing editor The Signpost A new Web site requires all colleges and universities to report their crime statistics or lose some federal funding. The Office of Postsecondary Education Campus Security Statistics Web site provides reports of criminal offenses from over 6,000 colleges and universities in the United States. "Students want to know if a campus is safe," said Anand Dyal-Chand. vice president of student affairs. 'This will allow them to see that information. It is available to students much more readily." Weber State University's police department posted their statistics to the Web site about three weeks ago. All universities and colleges are required to have their crime statistics posted by Oct. 24. Chief Lee Cassity of Weber State Police Department said that Dyal-Chand told the police department that they needed to get their crime statistics posted on Web site. "We already publish the campus right to know on our regular Web site," Cassity said. "We've always been proactive in trying to comply to the laws and regulations about distributing crime information." This requirement to post the information isn't entirely new. Dyal-Chand said that the police department has always been required to send written crime information. They were also required to distribute information to students on each university or college. "Everyone was required to present crime information to students in some form," Dyal-Chand said. "Now it'll be shown on the Web site." Before, WSU just handed out pamphlets containing the crime information to entering freshman and anyone else who requested it. Dyal-Chand added he believes this will be good for students who are looking into universities. "If a student is doing comparative shopping and is looking at several institutions, opponent Scott Howell, commented on the purple shirts, noting they had blue ones for Brigham Young University, Hatch's alma mater, when volunteers campaigned there a couple of weeks ago. "They've got the money to mix and match," Hamblin said. "I came for the cookies," said WSU student and president of the campus chapter of College Republicans Matthew Hyde.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
