NOVEMBER 23, 2012


Good morning everyone. I’m Clinton Griffiths.  Every once in a while, we like to dig through the archives and look at some of our favorite stories to air on AgDay. And that's what we're doing today.


One of the keys of life - especially for those in their golden years - is to remain active. That advice comes from Lillian Solbue a 94 year old South Dakota resident who uses 88 keys to remain young at heart. As KTIV's Al Joens tells us Lillian isn't ready to slow down any time soon.


Earlier this year AgDay television was proud to present "Harvest of Beauty", an inside look at wheat harvest through the southern plains. During our journey we traveled south and west to Watonga Oklahoma where, as I witnessed firsthand, the work is a family affair.


Cooking gadgets clutter the counter tops of many a kitchen. Small appliances come in all different shapes and sizes with dozens of different purposes, but another essential chef accessory has a design that's stayed pretty much the same for centuries. Cliff Naylor from AgDay affiliate KFYR in Bismarck, North Dakota shows us one amazing culinary clothes collection.


Every year north of the great 48, mushers run the last great race on earth...the Iditarod stretching across 11-hundred miles remote miles in Alaska. Running that race in 2012 was a Colorado man by the name of Bill Pinkham. But as Anne Herbst with the Denver Post shows us, this long time dog sled racer made 2012's last great race his last.


It's an annual event Memorial Day weekend. Indianapolis is packed with race fans for the Indianapolis 500 race. The tradition after the winning car crosses the finish line is rooted with Indiana dairy and puts the spotlight on milk. It all started when Louie Meyer requested a glass of buttermilk after he won his second Indy 500 in 1933. That one drink has grown into a refreshing tradition that gives select dairymen a taste of fame.
