The MacTalk Head Chef joined to discuss the wonders of the Avocado and how to cook great walleye.
Kim Holmes makes us smart about how to pick avocados out of a pile, how to ripen them after you get them home and his favorite uses of one of the world’s great fruits (that’s right, the avocado is a fruit!) and a couple of tricks to preserve it after you’ve used avocados to make guacamole.
We also discuss preparing one of the upper Midwest’s great regional treats: WALLEYE. Kim discusses his preference for Wondra Flour over All Purpose Flour when preparing walleye and how to cook it.
Bret Weber, Grand Forks City Councilman, joined the program to discuss his initial support for the proponents of Arbor Park and his subsequent Letter to the Editor of the Grand Forks Herald entitled “I was wrong about Arbor Park” that appeared in the Herald today.
Weber lays out the case for growing business in a city with an abundance of green space as well as his decision to publicly modify his stance.
Grand Forks County Sheriff Bob Rost joined MacTalk to discuss drugs and crime that might be associated with drug use. Is there a change afoot in the area?
As our interview wound down and we began discussing the danger of ATV’s, traffic fines in North Dakota (he thinks they’re a joke) and his personal future after his term expires in 2018, Rost plainly stated the following “I’m going to run for County Commission I think.”
Is illegal drug use increasing in the Grand Forks – East Grand Forks area? Is crime increasing due to increased drug use in the area? Or, are the numbers using drugs the same and we’re reading about them more because of the powerful nature of the drugs they are using?
We ask three longtime area law enforcement officers about their observations on drug use and crime, is it changing? Here’s what they had to say.
