When all is said and done with the frantic development that is currently going on, Veterans Boulevard in West Fargo is going to pretty much have it all, making it conveniently easy for residents to find whatever they need to shop for along the bustling corridor. The roadway officially opened in August of 2009 as an extension of 9th Street East, with the name changing to Veterans Boulevard at 19th Avenue South.

By Karen Huber I have garden tomatoes I need to use, so I perused my recipe files for a few favorites that will work nicely to dwindle my not-so-large supply. Homemade salsa is one of the best ways,coupling the savory sauce with those salty scoop chips. The "Fresh Salsa" is also a recipe I've made countless times.

The recipe called for cooked chicken but I had a bag of chicken breasts so that is what I started with, simply microwaving tha
