Future Chefs

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Local 4th and 5th graders from three different schools are taking a shot at becoming a chef.

The students had three hours to prepare the kid-friendly, healthy dishes with a little help from adults.

4th grader, Nicholas Darling, is just one of the aspiring chefs and he made fruit salsa.

Darling says he loves cooking and enjoys coming up with some wacky stuff.

Food services general manager, Bette Hunt, says the recipes are healthy after school snacks the youngsters can prepare on their own.

She says her favorite part of the event is to see how much fun the kids have when they're cooking.

"A lot of times we have parents tell us that their child is not athletic, or not musical, but they do have an interest in cooking and they wanna be a chef someday, so this fits right into that," said Hunt.

"I put some jalapeno in it, so I hope they like it, and that it's not too spicy for them," said Darling.

Darling says his favorite food by his group today was a "melon mobile," a watermelon carved out and filled with different kinds of fruit.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.

    Hundreds of Hells Angels are coming to Cody for a national meeting this week. The motorcycle club apparently likes the northwest Wyoming town. They held their world run there in 2006. Police presence is heavy in Cody now.
