Many people take pride in cooking the perfect turkey, but carving the turkey can end up being messy if you don't know what you're doing.

Here's Erik Wheater along with Fareway's Adam Jeppeson with some advice on how to cut your turkey without all that mess.

People living in Central Iowa can drop off their used canola, peanut or vegetable oil at the Metro Hazardous Waste drop-off at 1105 Prairie View Drive in Bondurant.

The oil is reused to support the local biodiesel industry.
