We have all seen and heard crazy stories of social injustice imposed by various government bodies and individual Governors during this pandemic but I truly think the episode Robert Hale describes to me here on Minot Today tops them all. This incident not only put a single mother out of business but also robbed the dignity of nursing care residents that count on her to boost their spirits through professional grooming.
This is the 1st in a series about gardening and appropriately so, we start with breaking ground. Tom Smesrud has made gardening his hobby and passion. Frankly I am amazed with the depth of his knowledge. Even if you are an experienced gardener I know you will learn even more by listening in on this series.
Seeing pictures of farmers markets opening up all around the USA I'm getting eager for the Minot Farmers Market to get going.
Today's visit is with Brian Byrne (pronounced burn)a vendor at Minot Farmers Market.
Brian shares with us what he brings to the market and when we can expect to see the market, held in Oak Park, open for business.
Minot's Chief of Police says let's "Stop the Death" from drug overdoses. There has been a rise in overdose deaths in our area and we need to take action now!
In this 15 minute radio interview we cover a variety of subjects but none more important then the Chiefs plea to help save lives. I learned a lot, hope you do as well.
Blake Krebseth, Broker/Owner of Watne Realtors in Minot ND gives us the beat on Minot Real Estate market during this current health crises.
Watne Realtors holds brokers license #4 in the State of North Dakota and licenses 1 - 3 are long gone.
Blake tells us about a procedure they are using at Watne during this crises that I had not heard of any other Realtors using to protect Buyers and Sellers alike.
Just this afternoon Shaun Sipma, the Mayor of Minot ND, joined me in a conversation of what's new on the COVRID 19 situation in Minot. I am so thankful that the Mayor made time for me just minutes after I called him and asked if he wanted to go on air about this situation.
The Mayor had a lot to say and a lot was shocking. #1 to me is that the Norsk Hostfest is cancelled this year. The Norsk Hostfest is an international celebration that brings millions of dollars into our community. My biggest personal concern is "will Minot have a graduation ceremony this year".
Jason and Cassidy Skjervem (pronounced Sure-vom)are the Area Directors of CRU and CRU is the force that is bringing Russ Taft to Minot for a concert Monday May 11th.
CRU is an interdenominational Christian parachurch organization for college and university students. It was founded in 1951
at the University of California, Los Angeles by Bill Bright and Vonette Zachary Bright. Since then, Cru has expanded its focus to include adult professionals, athletes, and high school students.
We have all heard the expression that "those that know how, do it, and those who don't teach it". My life experience has been far from that. The great majority of teachers I've been under the tutelage of were excellent achievers in the field they taught about.
Today, March 5th, and for the next month the Art instructors at Minot State University proudly present Faculty X, an exhibit of their own skills to the public.
