With a whopping crop of fresh tomatoes out there in the small family garden plots, here are a few more fresh salsa tomato recipes I alluded to a couple of weeks ago. The homemade Pico De Gallo is so fresh tasting and versatile you'll think it was just picked fresh from the garden. The Cilantro-Salsa Recipe is similar and equally as good and can be made with plum tomatoes if you prefer.
Where has the summer gone? You can tell it's winding down when school starts. The magical day for that in West Fargo is next Monday, Aug. 27. Two brand-new state of the art school buildings will be welcoming students.
Any of you planning on doing some out-of-country traveling more than likely know that for destinations previously not included you now need a passport. As of January 23 of this year, citizens of the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Bermuda are required to present a passport to enter the United States when arriving by air from any part of the Western Hemisphere; and as early as next summer, passports will be required at land and sea ports of entry. And because it currently takes up to 12 weeks to receive a passport, the U.S.
Definitely one of West Fargo's oldest, original landmarks is gone. The 60-foot-plus seedless Cottonwood tree on the former Allen Meyer property off of 13th Avenue South was toppled last Thursday for the sake of progress.

West Fargo City Commissioners went on record Monday night approving a resolution of support for the Metro Area Transit (MAT) Paratransit Options Analysis Study as completed by the Metropolitan Council of Governments and previously approved by Moorhead and Fargo city officials. The study recommends a mixture of options to meet the growing needs of disabled riders without cutting services. Mike Kunza, regional transportation coordinator for MetroCOG, reviewed the study saying that it is a mixture of options aimed at retaining existing services, controlling costs, all the while continuing to
Nothing beats a big, old, juicy tomato plucked fresh from the garden vine this time of the year when homegrown crops are entering prime, peak time. I typically plant Celebrities every year, a good all-around variety, excellent in salads, hot dishes and especially juices and salsa.
More than one trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year, but efforts, including a new program in North Dakota, are underway to prevent these bags from becoming litter. The Reuseable Bag Campaign is a collaborative effort of private businesses and government agencies to buy and distribute reusable shopping bags to shoppers at retail stores across the state. The pilot kick-off event is scheduled for this afternoon (Wednesday) at 3 p.m.
It appears we've come full circle and in the end there might be no real winners. West Fargo City Commissioners voted Monday night 4-1 to send the long debated smoking ban issue back to the citizens for another vote - this time for a complete 100 percent ban in public places - but not without considerable discussion, venting, and heated exchanges by parties involved both pro and con. Residents voted on the matter in 2004, exempting only some of the City's bars, with that action amended late last year to be less restrictive, mimicking the North Dakota ban in place. Monday night's discussi
Plans are being finalized for West Fargo Fargo's 13th annual National Night Out observance which will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, August 7, at Elmwood Park, 500 13th Ave.
