Tuesday, October 22 – Studio 222 in Fargo will be hosting some world-class jazz performers and bringing it to a world audience live via the Internet.

Here to discuss the issues raised in the film is NDSU Extension nutrition and wellness specialist, Abby Gold. ~~~ News director Dave Thompson stops by to update on a State Industrial Commission meeting held today to discuss gas flaring and a proposed drilling site on the Elkhorn Ranch.
