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.

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.

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.
A rainbow of fireworks will be exploding over West Fargo August 4 through August 10 as the Pyrotechnics Guild International (PGI) presents their phenomenal "West Fargo Firestorm 2007" at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds, located on the west edge of West Fargo. This will mark the sixth time the group has visited the area, the last time was in August of 2004 and if all goes according to plans, PGI intends to be back for another showing in 2011. Evening public shows will take place each night at dusk, Sunday through Wednesday, Aug. 5 through Aug.
It looks like West Fargo voters will have the deciding say in a complete smoking ban for the City. West Fargo City Commissioners voted 4-1 Monday night to have City residents decide the fate of a 100 percent citywide smoking ban in a special election that could occur this November or in June of 2008 during the general city election.
An individual got away with an undisclosed amount of cash following an armed robbery early Sunday morning at the Kum n Go, located on the corner of 9th Street East and 13th Avenue South. A male entered the store at 3:48 a.m. and pointed a pistol at the male clerk, demanding money. When the clerk opened the till, the robber helped himself and then quickly fled on foot. The clerk was not injured. A customer about to fill up with gas witnessed the individual in the store and leaving, and attempted to follow the culprit by car traveling northwest.
West Fargo will soon have its very own weekly farmers market for residents to shop for those fresh, much sought after summer vegetables many don't have the time or space to cultivate on their own. A variety of items including fresh produce, berries, herbs, flowers, hand-crafted items and agricultural products will be available for purchase at the West Fargo Park District's Farmers Market & Beyond beginning on August 2. The event will take place each Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Arena parking lot in an area cordoned off and highly visible at 1201 9th St.
Green beans are plentiful and at peak right now in local gardens providing the perfect opportunity to make the most of the short season for this fresh, crisp vegetable that can be the perfect ingredient in a variety of recipes. Whether you're looking for a staple for a hot casserole or want something a little more cool and refreshing in the form of a colorful summer salad, the green bean offers endless possibilities. One of my favorites is a recipe that's been around forever, but still one of the staples in my menu planning - Tator Tot Hotdish.
