The Post goes to Alaska


N-Post-Alaska-KingAllen and Louise King, of Cedar Springs, recently took the Post on a great adventure when they visited the Yukon Territory and many areas of Alaska.

“The weather was wonderful and we got great pictures of Mt. McKinley and lots of beautiful scenery,” said Louise. “We also saw lots of wildlife on our tour of the Denali National  Park, including a mother moose with her calf, grizzly bears, Dall sheep and caribou.”

Masked bandits steal a drink


Louise King, on Ash Street in Cedar Springs, went out to work in her yard and found four masked visitors lurking in her yard.
“I guess they were looking for a drink of water, as one actually climbed up and got a drink in the birdbath,” she said of the young racoons. “Others got their drinks from a pot by the back door.”
King said they have been back a couple of times but she hopes that ends soon. “We are using water to chase them away because there are young children in the neighborhood,” she said.

Top 5 Tips for Perfect Grilling

1. Clean and pre-heat your grill on high.
2. Lightly oil and season food before you put it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking.
3. Sear the outside of steaks when grilling, using tongs or a spatula to turn the meat. Cover the grill as much as possible during the grilling process to help lock in the great flavor and to prevent flare-ups.
4. Use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the first side, then grill 40 percent of the time after you turn over the food. This will give you an evenly cooked product.
5. Place your cooked food on a clean plate and allow to rest for five minutes before serving to retain moisture and juiciness.
