LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER Alana Snyder PUBLISHER Alana Snyder DIRECTOR OF SALES AND MARKETING John Snyder ART DIRECTOR Liz Painter EDITORIAL ASSISTANT Kyle Determan ACCOUNT MANAGER Taylor Hanson PUBLISHING COPY-EDITOR Emily Swan

This uncomfortable photo of the Snyders was taken the week we moved into our first home in 2009. We thought it would be genius to take engagement photos as we opened boxes. What's real: The boxes. What's fake: Of course the bottle of champagne was empty. Are you crazy?! Moving makes people go insane, and champagne is one of the only remedies for not wanting to stab your roommate (or significant other) with scissors. Too dark? Also, the pizza obviously was cold from the fridge, because look how curled it is. And I thought this looked natural... Fast forward to almost 10 years later, and the home process still is one of the most stressful, nail-biting times of our lives. But it's our home, and every change, every addition makes it that much more meaningful. The home issue of 605 is one of my favorites, and the cover story of this year's is so touching and inspiring. Entrepreneurs Chris and Jana Kenzy have taken a piece of Lead's history (the former Homestake Mine offices), and have spent over a year of their lives putting their sweat and creativity to make a home away from home for visitors. Todd Heidelbeauer shares his touching story of taking his father's passion for one-of-a-kind hunting calls and continuing the legacy, while also using that to create beautiful, custom blinds. Entrepreneur Dan Eisenhauer let's us in to his SorryBots workshop. Artist Merecedes Nelson shares her love for tiny toy animals and the decaying. The Medemas let us into the NewOver home office. And so much more. Get nestled in your own home, and enjoy (with champagne)!

Little Parent on the Prairie

A Life Calling

The Design Center

Tracy is a transplant to South Dakota via Colorado, California, and (oddly enough) Nebraska. She is married to a Sioux Falls native and is a mother to two "spirited" children and one giant bear-dog. She recently moved to the country, where she is hyperventilating in a brown bag in regard to all of the ticks and bugs.

As a small-town South Dakota native, Erin moved to Sioux Falls to attend Augustana University where she recently graduated with a double major in journalism and business communications. She loves meeting the people behind every story and the learning and creative process that comes with it.

Natalie graduated from the University of South Dakota with a degree in communication sciences and disorders. She has a passion for writing, as well as lazy Saturdays, laughing, and spending time with her husband.

mortgage myths

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

W

HEN IT COMES TO BUYING A HOME, THERE ARE A LOT OF MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE PROCESS, ESPECIALLY FOR FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS. WE’VE TEAMED UP WITH PRESIDENT OF CORTRUST MORTGAGE TODD HOPKINS TO UNCLOAK FREQUENT MYTHS SURROUNDING THE PROCESS OF BUYING A HOME, OBTAINING A REALISTIC MORTGAGE, AND UNDERSTANDING THE STEPS IN BETWEEN.

MYTH #1: YOU NEED 20% DOWN TO BUY A HOME. FALSE. While it is true that putting 20 percent down on a house allows you to avoid paying for private mortgage insurance, it is not a must. There are varieties of down payment assistance programs available. A few require little, and in some cases, no down payment at all. “South Dakota Housing Development Authority and Grow South Dakota are a couple of popular programs” said Hopkins. MYTH #2: YOU NEED AMAZING CREDIT. FALSE...ISH. Good credit never hurts, but some mortgage companies have lending products that can help you move beyond credit challenges. Don’t let credit problems

1 6 \\\\\\\\\ F E B R U A R Y

hold you back from speaking with mortgage loan originators. Hopkins swears by communication, “I absolutely advise people to come in and ask questions.” MYTH #3: YOUR INCOME IS THE ONLY THING THAT DETERMINES HOW MUCH YOU CAN BORROW. FALSE. You might be surprised to know that your monthly or annual income isn’t the only factor used to determine how much you can borrow. Things like credit and job history are taken into consideration when determining your loan amount, which is catered to each individual person. MYTH #4: CONTACTING A MORTGAGE LENDER SHOULD BE YOUR LAST STEP IN THE HOME BUYING PROCESS. FALSE.

Contacting a mortgage lender should actually be one of the first things you do in the home buying process. In fact, it is advised to work with a mortgage lender before you even start browsing for homes, and for good reasons. First, you will have a better idea of the price range of homes you can afford. Second, you’ll avoid missing out on your dream home to someone who is already pre-approved. Hopkins attributes the majority of these myths to misconceptions of home buyers. “People have a perception that the process can be difficult and cumbersome. Allow banks to help from start to finish.” MYTH #5: I’M LOCKED INTO MY RATE FOREVER WITH NO OTHER OPTIONS. TRUE, KIND OF. Standard policy doesn’t allow buyers to re-lock in if rates change. However, there are options available. For example, if rates

go up, you are completely protected from that increase. If rates go down, you have the option to refinance your loan at that time. Your mortgage lender will help you explore options to see if it makes sense to refinance, which is another reason it’s important to get in touch with a lender as soon as possible. While these are just a few of the common myths that surround home buying, it’s important to get your facts straight. “Buying a home used to be harder than it is now. Many people are unsure of the home buying process, which is why we are here to help,” said Hopkins. Meeting up with a mortgage lender will not only help you debunk real estate lore, but also put your home buying nerves at ease. FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT CORTRUSTMORTGAGE.COM.

A LIFE Calling BY ERIN MAIROSE

IT WAS TODD HEIDELBAUER’S JUNIOR YEAR OF COLLEGE WHEN HIS GRANDFATHER, FRANK, ASKED IF HE COULD HELP FINISH THAT SEASON’S ORDERS OF DUCK AND GEESE CALLS. IT WAS SOMEWHAT A STRIKE OF FATE, AS TODD, A TRACK ATHLETE AT AUGUSTANA UNIVERSITY, WAS INJURED IN A CAR ACCIDENT THAT LEFT HIM NEARLY UNABLE TO RUN. WITH EXTRA TIME ON HIS HANDS AS HE RECOVERED, HE AGREED TO HELP HIS GRANDFATHER FINISH THE ORDERS.

Over 20 years later, Todd is carrying on the family tradition, making the Heidelbauer Mallard Toller the same way his grandfather did. Paramount to its design is its durability, volume, and the mallard rasp it produces. It’s a piece that becomes a heirloom to hunters, one that doesn’t get replaced, and instead, is passed down. Todd attributes the time spent with his grandfather carefully crafting each piece as the start to a lifetime of custom work, as over the years Todd’s started other business ventures all centered around unique, hand-crafted items. He still remembers the conversation he had with Frank at dinner one night, when in his aging years, Frank told him the duck calling business he’d built over his lifetime was going to have to end. “He teared up and said, ‘It just breaks my heart to say no to people,’ because that’s just the type of person he was. He didn’t want to let down any of his customers,” said Todd.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// 1 8 \\\\\\\\\ F E B R U A R Y

In the hunting world, Frank was an acclaimed duck call maker. He sold the Heidelbauer Mallard Toller to hunters all over the world, including Germany and Tanzania. In the 1950s, he became a world goose calling champion. After working in business for a few months after graduation, Todd decided to quit his job and make the family business his full time work. At that time in 1996, “There were enough orders to equal three years of the salary I was making at my suitand-tie-job." Heidelbauer custom-made duck calls are now in their 66th year of business.

Todd makes them all in a shop a few blocks from his home in Brandon, which is also home to his other business ventures. In 2004, local businessman Tony Bour contacted him about purchasing a shutter business, and three days, later he bought the company now known as Heidelbauer Shutters. His work with shutters is one he describes as putting the final touch on a new house. “The greatest thing about both businesses is the wonderful people I’ve gotten to meet,” said Todd. “With the shutters, I work with local people, and with the duck calls, I

get to meet people from across the country.” Along the way, Todd has also owned a business building custom-made pool tables and also makes handmade urns. Although his dream has always been to be a self-starter and business owner, “I would have never dreamt what those businesses would be.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT HEIDELBAUER.COM.

DID YOU KNOW... Frank passed away in 2002, but he was able to see the business enter its 50th year, which they celebrated with a special edition call. Each call is personalized with the owner’s name and year, making it an heirloom piece. The Heidelbauer Mallard Toller sells for $360. To support waterfowl conservation efforts, the Heidelbauer donates duck calls to Ducks Unlimited across the U.S.

ASHLEY + MATT KAYSER

att and Ashley Kayser were looking for their forever home, especially when it became more crowded after baby number three.

“We had looked and looked and looked for houses over [by McKennan Park] and couldn’t find anything,” said Ashley. “You would either need to gut the whole thing, or it didn’t have enough bedrooms or bathrooms.” After hearing there was talk of her 1961 “dream home” coming up for sale in the McKennan Park and Pendar Lane area this past summer, she jumped at the chance. Now with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, there is plenty of room for entertaining, playing, and for keeping their lives (semi) organized.

“OUR FRIEND ADAM FAHRENDORF GAVE US A PHOTO OF THE ORIGINAL HOUSE AS A GIFT.”

IN THE ENTRYWAY IS A PIECE BY BROOKINGS ARTIST KAREN KINDER.


HOME + LIVING

O MAIN FLOOR For Matt, who is a controller at Creative Services, and for Ashley, who works remotely for the same company and is also a homemaker, the open floor plan of the main floor works great for keeping track of kids Charlotte, 6, William, 4, and Henry, 1. The kitchen showcases the trend of mixing the color white with woods (like the cabinets). The IKEA barstools are stylish yet realistic for potential spills and everyday wear and tear. It’s obvious the shining star is the 10-foot island, which Matt says is perfect for friends and family. “The island is awesome because you can fit so many people around it, so it’s great for hosting,” he said. Looking over at the dining room table, it’s hard not to notice the large, ornate lamp in the corner. It turns out it’s an old light that once hung from the Cathedral of St. Joseph. “Matt and I were married at the Cathedral, the kids were all baptized there, my grandparents and my aunt and uncle were married there,” said Ashley. “They all have [a light]. When they did the renovations, somebody had them stored in their garage. My uncle rewired it to make it a lamp. It’s definitely a big conversation piece when people come over.” When asked if they eat at the dining room table, Ashley replied honestly, “Never. We eat at the island all of the time.” She continue with a laugh, “It’s awesome. The kids can all sit at there and not touch each other.”

“I LIKE THAT THERE’S WOOD MIXED IN THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE.”

A highlight of the entire main floor are the large windows throughout the dining room and living room, bringing in natural light throughout. “My favorite part of the house definitely is the main living room,” said Matt. “It’s great with the open lighting, and as wintertime comes, it’s like you’re outside.” Ashley added, “It also gives that feel of the ‘60s.”

O THE DEN Also on the main floor to the left of the front entrance is the den. Another conversation piece is the barn door that once was an office door downtown in Sioux Falls, which still has the numbers visible on it. The past owners had a loose western theme in this room, hence the mason jar chandelier. The Kaysers played on that look with a cowhide rug. “It’s from Hobby Lobby,” said Ashley. “With kids, they’re going to dump Cheez-Its on it and what-not, so it works.” It’s obvious from the living room and den that there are avid (or once avid) readers in the home. There is a wide range of books, including old novels from Ashley’s grandma. Matt mentioned loving the privacy of the space. “The den is a small, little room, but it’s perfect for if the kids are watching shows out in the living room, you can still have your own space,” he said.

O THE BEDROOMS At the top of the stairs is Charlotte’s room. Described as “girly-girly,” the light pink walls are accented with art created by the creative first child. “‘Miss artist’ needs to have her art everywhere, so we figured we could have her own space in her room,” said Ashley. The bed adorned with a ruffled comforter was new, along with the beds in all of the other rooms. “Everyone got new beds when we moved,” she said. Ashley explained that the house is a hodgepodge of stores. “I buy a couple of expensive pieces,

2 2 \\\\\\\\\ F E B R U A R Y

but the rest of them I find at Target, World Market, Wayfair, or places like HomeGoods,” she said. Next door is baby Henry’s room. This was the only room that needed any work, since the previous owner had three kids: one boy and two girls. “This was the only room we had to paint, because it was purple,” said Ashley. Not knowing what sex Henry would be, the couple painted it gray, with black and white accents. “I was really colorful with the other nurseries, so it was fun going with neutral colors,” she said.

There is a special pillow in each room with the child’s name. Ashley explained that she had found a woman on etsy who created these keepsakes out of baby clothes and blankets - except the baby Henry's, of course. “The woman who made them was closing shop, so Henry’s isn’t made with his clothes, but I also wanted it to be gray and black to go with his room,” she said. “It was cool, though, because part of Charlotte’s was made with a dress she wore like six times a day.” William’s inspiration for his room was to be exactly like the room of the previous child, letters above the bed and all.

“William thought when we moved in here that it would be exactly as it was,” she laughed. This meant having to find lockers, and thanks to Craiglist, they found some. But with Craigslist comes risk. “We ended up painting them because they had obscenities scratched on the side,” she said. The lockers act as William’s dresser, which has its advantages and disadvantages. Ashley described, “They’re so loud when he opens them in the morning, but he loves them.”


HTHE O M EFORMER + LIVING OWNER MOVED THE DINING CHANDELIER INTO THE MASTER BEDROOM.

“THE LAST OWNERS ONLY HAD THREE KIDS, SO THEY DROPPED IT DOWN TO FOUR BEDROOMS AND ADDED A SECOND LAUNDRY UPSTAIRS.”

O BUILT-INS

THERE IS A MURPHY BED IN THE BASEMENT THAT THE KAYSERS SAY WILL BE GREAT FOR THEIR KIDS’ SLEEPOVERS.

Aside from the incredible windows are the other stars of the house: Built-ins. The 3,500 square foot home has built-ins in almost every room. “You don’t have to have anything out, there is a place for everything,” said Ashley. “Pillows, everything... there’s a space.” A very helpful feature are the modern built-in gates on the stairs connecting the main floor to the second floor. “The [previous owners] had them built it because their kids were sleepwalkers, so that works out great for us as baby gates,” she said. Downstairs in the entertainment area and kids’ playroom is a Murphy Bed. “It was interesting, because [the former owners] left all of the televisions in the built-ins, but took the mattress from the Murphy Bed,” laughed Matt. “I mean, it makes sense, it just is funny when you think of it.”

O THE DIFFERENCE FROM THEIR LAST HOUSE? “EVERYONE HAS THEIR SPACE. WE’RE NOT ON TOP OF EACH OTHER.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT CREATIVESURFACES.COM.

THE DESIGN HOUSE BY NATALIE SLIETER

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I

N AUGUST 2017, DESIGN HOUSE TOOK OVER THE SPACE FORMERLY OCCUPIED BY THE BAKERY ON NORTH MAIN AVENUE IN SIOUX FALLS. FOUNDER AND OWNER MEGAN PETERSON SAW THE NEED FROM INDEPENDENT INTERIOR DESIGNERS FOR A WORKSPACE IN THE COMMUNITY. THE SPACE TRANSFORMED INTO A TRADEONLY DESIGNER SHOWROOM WITH AMENITIES LIKE PRIVATE OFFICES, A COFFEE BAR, AND A ROOFTOP DECK TO BETTER SERVE DESIGNERS IN THE AREA. 2 6 \\\\\\\\\ F E B R U A R Y

Along with being a showroom of the latest designs in home furnishings, Design House also offers delivery and installation services to assist designers in completing projects for clients. The professional workspace also gives designers who are visiting town a place to meet clients and show them furniture and other pieces to complete their interior design projects. Other amenities provided to designers include a resource library with access to brands and vendors not normally accessible to independent interior designers. The workspace also allows designers to collaborate on client orders that may need customization. Design House selects all the furniture featured on the showroom floor. Peterson said she and another team member go to vendor shows to purchase furniture and other pieces, then bring them back for the designers to

purchase and then resell to their clients. Peterson goes to these vendor shows with the intention of finding vendor lines to carry that no one else in town offers. Besides furniture, Design House offers upholstery, flooring, rugs, window treatments, wall coverings, and fabrics from select vendors. Furniture can also be customized to meet the space or style needs of clients. Peterson said designers will spend weeks finding the perfect piece of furniture or home décor for clients. “These aren’t sales people. They are truly in it for the clients,” said Peterson. Design House provides products and services independent interior designers cannot gain access to on their own. Peterson explained that these things could be missed from the retail designer studios, such as access to higher end products and helping

HOME + LIVING designers complete projects by offering delivery and installation services. Design House also gives designers more freedom in how they work, how often they work, and what products they can offer clients. When Design House initially opened, there was a membership fee, but Peterson explained that has been done away with as it gave off the vibe of exclusivity. She said the only thing designers need to have is their buyer’s credentials. Designers who work out of Design House do have the option of paying a small fee to have their name listed on the Design House website. This can help clients learn more about the designers and their style, and help them determine who they want to work with. The public is welcome to come to Design House to browse the showroom. If someone is interested in purchasing a piece and is not already working with a designer, Design House can match them with a designer who will help them complete the purchase. Peterson said every designer has a different price structure, and styles may vary between designers. All the designers have the mission of seeing their clients get the perfect piece to complete the room of their dreams for their homes. “The designer’s inspiration is what the clients want,” said Peterson. “The whole process is the art of it."

Bringing Work Home Tips for Home Offices BY KYLE DETERMAN

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

CASSIE AND DAVE MEDEMA HAVE NOT ONLY MANAGED TO MAKE THEIR HOUSE INTO A HOME, BUT ALSO INTO A PRODUCTIVE OFFICE FOR 9 YEARS. FOUNDERS OF NEWOVER IN SIOUX FALLS, THE MEDEMAS INVITED US INTO THEIR DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT WORK SPACE WITH TIPS AND ADVICE. FROM HELPING CLIENTS WITH LOGO RENOVATIONS TO DEVELOPING ENTIRE BRANDS, THESE TWO DEFINITELY KNOW HOW TO KEEP THINGS SIMPLE AND FRESH. 3 6 \\\\\\\\\ F E B R U A R Y

MUST-HAVES LIQUID PRODUCTIVITY We all know a good day can’t start without a boost of warm and fresh energy. Whether you are all about the energy drink, or keep it simple with some loose-leaf tea, having your choice of morning beverage at your fingertips is key. Not only is accessibility important, but also quality. Dave and Cassie say

skimping on your morning "Cup of Joe" can put a dent in your whole day. “If you have good coffee and tea at home, then it just completely gets rid of the need to go out to a coffee shop,” said Dave.

SIMPLE AND CLEAN ENVIRONMENT The setup of a home office can make or break your ability to be productive and comfortable, which is something

HOME + LIVING

Cassie swears by. Whether it’s a clean and organized desk, or a put together, clutter-free living area, the Medemas find that their productivity stems from a simple and orderly system. “Make sure to spend a lot of time on the setup of things. If we are here all day, every day, we want it to be a pleasant and productive environment,” explained Cassie. “We try to keep it as minimal and tidy as possible, so we aren’t visually distracted from getting actual work done.”

GOOD TUNES One plus of working at home is picking the music. With that being said, there comes a time when tastes may clash or moods may change. (Let it be known the entire time 605 was welcomed in their home, they were jamming to 90’s hits, including Mark Morrison’s Return of the Mac.) Dave said, “As long as the music and playlists stay fresh, and it’s something we both can listen to, it’s great.”

“WE DON’T USE THIS ROOM FOR ANYTHING ELSE BESIDES WORK. THERE IS A CLEAR DISTINCTION THAT THIS IS THE OFFICE.”

O BRINGING WORK HOME CONT.

STAY AWAY FROM MIXING WORK WITH PLAY As much as we would love to be productive from the comfort of our beds, there is something to be said for separating work from play, especially where home offices are concerned. Having an office right off of the living space, it would seem easy for both aspects of life to overflow into the other, but by closing off an entire room for work only (meaning no play time or movie nights), they are able to keep them separate and distinct. “I think defining a clear room is really important,” Cassie said. “We don’t use this room for anything else besides work. There is a clear distinction that this is the office.”

GETTING STUCK AT HOME With as much effort that goes into making a home office space, it seems crazy to not want to show it off. But, the Medemas say they use meetings and consultations as an excuse to leave home. While they still sometimes use their work space to talk through big projects or meet with clients for specific tasks, they like to use time with clients to get back to their coffee shop days.

When we think home office, we think slippers and hoodies. In all actuality, Cassie says that’s one thing they steer clear from. With coffee in hand and blazer on back, Cassie explained to us that keeping themselves put together is just as important as keeping their space tidy. “One thing that has really helped us is to treat it as if you’re going to an actual job. Get up, get ready, put yourself together,” she said. “That sense of presenting ourselves has really helped with our productivity. Look good, feel good, work good.” FOR MORE INFORMATION ON NEWOVER, VISIT NEWOVER.COM. •

Three weeks on. One Week off.

Cassie and Dave decided back in 2014 that one week off was the perfect amount of time to mentally, physically, and creatively recharge. Whether it’s taking time with family or working on their home, they both believe this schedule is what keeps their work environment as productive and cohesive as it is. Dave sums it up perfectly in the video on their website: “I think there are going to be very few people that get to the end of their life and say ‘I wish I worked more.’” FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT THEOFFWEEK.COM.

PJ'S DON’T EQUAL PRODUCTIVITY

“As far as meetings go, they are our chance to get out of the office. So, we are either going to meet clients at their office, or sometimes they are looking for an excuse to leave too, so that’s when we will meet at a coffee shop,” said Cassie.

The Lofts in Lead TURNING HISTORY INTO A HOME BY MONICA ALBERS

41


AS A SOUTH DAKOTA TOWN SITS POISED FOR EXPANSION, A LOCAL COUPLE IS PROVIDING NEW VISITORS A PLACE TO STAY AT A HOME-AWAY-FROMHOME THAT’S REMAINED GOLDEN AMIDST BIG CHANGES.

“LEAD IS SUCH A COOL TOWN. I FORESEE IT BEING PROBABLY ONE OF THE COOLEST TOWNS IN SOUTH DAKOTA. IT’S GOT ALL THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS.” - CHRIS KENZY

Room by room, the old offices of Lead’s epic Homestake Mine are being repurposed to offer what owners describe as an upscale urban feel with nearly 150 years of history. The Lofts in Lead provide a place to unpack for a weekend away or a longer stay – each is a one-bedroom/one-bath apartment around 700 square feet. All

fully-furnished, co-owner Jana Kenzy says she wants visitors to have all the comforts of home, including a kitchen, living, and dining space. “It’s decorated like your home – we have beautiful art on the walls, we have cozy blankets on the couches. You walk in and it feels comforting and warm, it's just not sterile like a hotel where everything

is the same,” she said. “And I made a point of making sure that each unit was completely different in décor.” The project comes as the Airbnb-style of hospitality is taking off across the country – travelers preferring more space and personal accommodations over pricier hotels with limited options, especially during extended stays.


“A lot of people are avoiding the hotels and motels because they want that extra luxury of a living room, not just a bed with a closet and a TV… especially if they’re traveling with kids at all,” said Jana’s husband and co-owner Chris Kenzy. “They want to have a place to unwind.” Prices fluctuate, but they say it’s usually around $90 a night, or $50 a night for month-long stays. They currently have eight units on the third floor of the building available, with additional units in the works on the second floor. The first floor, on which Jana and Chris are working to create a blank canvas for the next tenants, will be 5,000 square feet of commercial space. A town of about 3,000 people, Lead has seen its population stagnate since the 1990s, with the Homestake Mine’s closure in 2002 hitting the area hard. Once host to the largest gold mine in North America, hundreds of employees lost their jobs, and many left in search of work elsewhere. The Great Recession just a few years later was the second punch. But Lead is now on the map for scientists across the world, thanks to the new Sanford Underground Research Facility being constructed inside the old Homestake Mine. The facility will conduct experiments, in coordination with the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Chicago, to study the properties of subatomic particles called neutrinos. Sanford Underground Research

Facility says the project is estimated to create about 1,800 jobs at the peak of construction operations – and lead to nearly a billion dollars in total economic output in South Dakota. Operations kicked off at a groundbreaking ceremony last summer, and there’s excitement about what incoming jobs and visitors could do to transform the area. Chris says he and Jana are ready to help participate in its growth. “I give Lead a few more years, and it’s going to be a totally different town,” he said. “We’re just being patient and letting that happen, and are ready to be a part of that now.” The old mine and its Main Street office aren’t the only parts of town taking on new roles. Chris and Jana own several properties in the area that they’ve renovated and now rent to new tenants, mostly in the city’s historic district. “We especially like to take something old and historical that we see that needs some extra love, and turn it around and bring it back to life, with the intention of keeping the integrity of the historic quality of it,” Jana said. Repurposing the old Homestake office has been one challenge the couple says they’ve been looking for. Partition walls were removed in some units to provide more open space and new appliances were installed. Cosmetic work was tackled to provide fresh floors and ceilings, tape, and texture. Parking is also available, and they’re working to install in-house laundry facilities for guests.

Chris says Jana’s vision for the interior design really brought about the finishing touches that make The Lofts what they are. Each unit is filled thoughtfully with handpicked items – from magazines to cozy blankets to cooking supplies. “I buy things that I love,” she said. “I knew the vibe that I wanted to create, where we still honor the historic value of the units, but we brought in that homey-fresh feel as well.” Almost everything is purchased locally, with a lot of items from area antique and thrift shops. The whole family got involved, too – the couple’s two daughters, 12-year-old Savannah and 9-year-old Grace, and son, Max, 4, help make décor selections and stock units for future guests. Chris says he hopes their work now is part of a larger movement spreading in the area. “[Lead has] been in hibernation mode since the mine shut down, and it’s getting revitalized,” he said. “My hope is, for these old homes that are just really beautiful, old structures, that people come in and they revitalize them… and just make the town a really vibrant community again, with just an upbeat energetic twist that it has never seen before.” This art isn’t new to Chris and Jana. With a background in construction, Chris previously helped develop ski properties in Colorado. Both from Rapid City, they moved back to the Black Hills in 2003 and built the Terry Peak Chalets near Lead. Chris says elements of the Chalets are heavily inspired by his time in Colorado ski country – with heavy timbers and a beefy industrial vibe. They now house more than 100 people and have just finished renovating a pavilion to host all kinds of events, from family reunions to weddings. Jana taught public school in Rapid City for eight years, then became director of Buena Vista Montessori School before choosing to focus full-time on their real estate projects this past year.

“LEAD IS SUCH A COOL TOWN. I FORESEE IT BEING PROBABLY ONE OF THE COOLEST TOWNS IN SOUTH DAKOTA. IT’S GOT ALL THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS.” - CHRIS KENZY

“I THINK THAT’S WHAT MAKES CHRIS AND I WORK TOGETHER SO WELL. WE CAN BOTH WALK INTO A SPACE AND BOTH OF US HAVE JUST HAD A VISION. AND OUR VISION JIVES TOGETHER REALLY NICELY.” – JANA KENZY

It’s their ability to work as a team, they say, that makes the process successful – and has allowed them to learn even more about each other after 14 years of marriage. “I think there’s a mutual respect, and, honestly, we don’t even differ very much anymore,” Jana said. “It’s more exciting, because we bring ideas to each other that we both are energized by.” We can walk into a brand new space that looks completely in disarray and needs major rehab, and we can say we have all these ideas.” One ingredient to their recipe, they say,

is an important compromise: Chris gets the final say on structural and exterior elements - Jana makes the final call on a project’s interior. The policy has helped give each of them space to get creative and follow new ideas. “I think we built from that compromise the foundation for how well we really work together, actually. Because we really learned to trust each other in the process, and we loved what the other one came up with every time,” said Jana. An important element of their businesses is introducing people to the area – encouraging them to explore Lead and big sister Deadwood among the

region’s more well-known attractions. Opportunities for skiing, hiking, and rock climbing impress adventure junkies by day. Local gambling and nightlife offer extra fun when the sun goes down. “We have so many beautiful spaces and places in this Black Hills region alone, so we really try to market that unique niche.” said Jana. Chris agreed. “The Black Hills in themselves are extremely unique, because it is a bucket list destination - we have people from all over the world who come here for the Black Hills,” he said. “We, and many other people that have similar properties, are fortunate enough to host them.”

As Lead plays host to visitors traveling to this little valley town for both business and pleasure, Chris and Jana are ready to see what happens next. “I think Lead is really a charming, quaint little snow town, and I see so much more possibility,” said Jana. “And I think that Lead and Deadwood are doing awesome things to bring in more opportunities and possibilities to expose Lead, and enhance it to become the little gem we all know it’s meant to be.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT THELOFTSINLEAD.COM. •

O EVEREST INDIAN CUISINE t was a random weekday evening at the stoplight on 41st Street and Western Avenue when:

“Is that a new Indian restaurant?!”

This was screamed at the level where I was shocked my husband had a voice the next day. “We have to review that place. I bet they own the Everest Indian Cuisine in Rapid City, too.” Fast forward to the week of the review. The Google calendar event was set for 2 p.m. on a Thursday. Then John (said husband and main Indian food connoisseur) double booked himself for a meeting. He previously had dibs on taking photos

for this piece (a.k.a. eat all of the Indian food). You guessed it. There were more screams - but not of joy.

TRY IT: We didn’t get to them, but these items are on our list for next time…

Up next to bat? Liz, art director and Indian food virgin. She was accompanying me, who has dabbled in the most mild of Indian food excursions.

One of the owners, Dhiren Magar, greeted us and sat us at our booth. While the atmosphere was pretty minimal, it was clean and still inviting. Magar explained that from 11 a.m.

was delicious, and made me ignore regular Naan, which is typically one of my faves.

Instead of us getting the boot, they welcomed us with open arms, and we let them pick some of their favorite items since we are not as seasoned (see what I did there?) with authentic Indian and Nepalese food.

One of the other owners, Jitendra Poudel, came out and talked to us about their Sioux Falls location opening in early January. John was correct that they opened Everest Indian Cuisine in Rapid City, along with Kathmandu Bistro, which they said were both doing very well.

First up was what some would say is the cherry on top for this category of cuisine: Naan. While we're not as familiar with Indian food, we are obsessed with bread. We had the traditional Naan that is a leavened, oven-baked flatbread that is lightly buttered. Brought out with it was what I would consider traditional Naan’s “hot cousin,” Garlic Naan. This white flour bread stuffed with garlic and cilantro

Magar came over to ask us how we would like it for spice. We stared at each other confused and unknowing of the right answer for our wuss (and lack of) experience. Magar tried to assist, “Mild, medium…” “Yes, mild medium,” I said confidently.

“No. Mild or medium.” “Mild,” we said, disappointed in ourselves. Next up was the (mild) Chicken Tikka Masala. This meal is pieces of marinated chicken cooked with creamy sauce with authentic spices. I’ll give you some more backstory real quick. To describe what we tried, we’re using the menu. So while I know creamy sauce and authentic spices is kind of vague, it’s what I know. It definitely had some curry sauce, though, and I was excited about that. Liz legit snapped at me when I took my seventh bite. “We have to try the rest, stop eating the chicken.” I took four more bites. The chicken seemed so fresh, and I couldn’t stop

the happy food feeling I had with each consumption. This is a popular dish that is great for those who are also newer to the Indian food scene. On to the Lamb Bhuna. The tender pieces of lamb were sautéed with onion and green chili peppers and were then cooked in spices. While the chicken was incredible spicy or not, this needed to at least be medium, if not more heat. I was eh about it, but Liz suddenly looked up and exclaimed, “I like lamb!” The tables turned, and she started going at the dish, and kept talking about how good it was, and how it would be even better with more of a kick. Cumin seemed very strong as a flavor in this dish, but that’s me guessing. Our final dish was from the Tandoori side of the menu (“served in a hot

sizzler,” as the menu described). The Mixed Grill was an assortment of shrimp, chicken tandoori, tandoori chicken tikka, and lamb kebab served with vegetables. The vegetables were crisp, and the meat sometimes looked questionable to the eyes, but was great. “I can’t believe I like Indian food,” said Liz. “I’m so proud of myself.” (Disclaimer: Liz had literally not tried anything out of her comfort zone until the year 2015, so this truly is an exciting moment for her.)

O BOTTOM LINE:

NAAN

Everest Indian Cuisine is in a great location that brings tasty Indian and Nepalese food options to the area. Whether you eat in, try the lunch buffet, or grab takeout for a night in, it’s a welcomed addition to town. Rapid City has had six years with this talented crew, and I’m excited to have them now on both sides of the state.

PRICE It’s priced out fairly. There are spendier options, like the lobster at $25, but many items are around the $12-$16 price. These are not your everyday flavors, though, so it’s worth every penny. Is there a price for pleasing your palate? Didn’t think so (this is why I have credit card debt).

TASTE

Honestly, it’s pretty minimal with a couple framed pieces of art… or photos. I didn’t get that close. The red booths are nice and seem new, and the atmosphere is clean. Maybe once they're settled in they’ll experiment with more décor. Also, the buffet doesn’t feel like a cliché buffet.

It was so tasty, and it actually made me want to test the spicy waters, which never happens. I will definitely go back just for the Chicken Tikka Masala, and the vegetable-only options actually sound delicious (if you know me, you’re probably wondering if I feel okay as I write this). Also, one word: Naan.

La Minestra has made a name for itself in Pierre, and it’s just one of many businesses that have occupied the historic building. “The building was a saddle company, a mortuary, and then a grocery store,” said owner and chef Mark Mancuso. “From there, this was a beer parlor and then an old bar.” Now it serves American-Italian specialties, including New York style pizza made with homemade dough, like the Atomic Goat with pepperoni and jalapenos topped with sriracha goat cheese. Their pasta is made fresh every day, and their Chicken Tortellini is so popular that Mancuso says he’s never been able to take it off the menu. But there’s one dish that's his favorite, which is why it was titled - you guessed it - Mark’s Favorite. The dish has Italian sausage from their secret family recipe, and is sauteed with sun-dried tomatoes, Kalamata olives, and roasted red peppers in a red sauce over rigatoni. Mancuso explained, “I went to culinary school in Seattle. I got a job in Bellevue, and every day for lunch I would make this specific dish. When we opened the restaurant, I titled it ‘Mark’s Favorite Dish’ because that’s all I ate when I was working.” There are other items that aren’t Italian heavy, like Duck Wings, the Spicy Shrimp & Rice Bowl, Coconut Chicken Risotto, and much more. Taste local beers available, like Highway 79 Brewing Company’s Beach Ball Kölch, Fernson Brewing Company’s Lion’s Paw, or Lost Cabin Beer Company’s Lord Grizzly Scottish Ale.

FOR AN ATTRACTION O CULTURAL HERITAGE CENTER 900 GOVERNORS DR.

Even if you don’t go inside, seeing the outside of the award-winning Cultural Heritage Center is a bucket list experience. As part of South Dakota’s 1989 centennial project, the state legislature committed $6.5 million to build the earth-covered establishment. The 63,000 square foot underground building preserves the state’s past and present cultural resources in a structure “recalling the ancient Arikara earth lodges that once were found near the Missouri River Valley.” They do this through the South Dakota State Historical Society with exhibits that showcase the state’s earliest history up to the 20th century. Director of the S.D.S.H.S. Jay D. Vogt pointed out, “I want to emphasize the logo of the South Dakota State Historical Society. It’s based off of one our best artifacts in our collection: the Great Sioux Horse Effigy. It has been on two international exhibitions in the past ... It is truly a magnificent piece. You notice the 10 red marks on the body of the horse, which represent the 10 shots believed to have been fired at the horse during the Battle of Little Bighorn.” One of the newest exhibits is “The Spirit of the ‘70s,” which features people, places, and events that influenced history, society, and popular culture both in South Dakota and around the nation in the 1970s. This unique attraction also is home to the State Archives, where the S.D.S.H.S. collects, appraises, accessions, describes, organizes, preserves, determines, and makes available manuscripts collections, South Dakota state, county, and other town government records, photographs, maps, and other archival materials which have permanent historical and research value. Guided group tours are available with a maximum of 25 people per group with more than one group welcome (they suggest scheduling one week in advance). The group rate is $3 per person, and tours are one hour. General admission is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors 60 and older, and is free for children 17 and under and for Society Members. There is free admission the first Sunday of the month.

As you walk into Mad Mary’s Steakhouse & Saloon, it’s like you’re in a time capsule of the Wild West. The quirky atmosphere is a collection of eclectic memorabilia from customers, family members, estate sales, and antique shops.

The western theme carries over into the menu, with items like the Deadwood Trail Mix Up appetizer, the Billy the Kid Burger, and Wild Bill and Calamity Jane’s Favorite. If you decide to come by owner Mary Etzkorn’s establishment, come hungry. Actually, come starving, because it's known for its charming style and delicious food. “The French Onion Soup is homemade by Mary Lou, my mom,” continued Etzkorn, “and it’s one of our staples here at the restaurant.” Appetizers include Shrimp Cocktail and Pistol Pete’s Pickle Spears, while dinner entrées range from items like Salmon Filet, Filet Mignon, and the Double Mad Burger. Steaks are cut in-house and the restaurant grinds their own burgers. Dinners include homemade soup or salad with your choice of a side, like the Herb Linguine. A Mad Mary’s favorite are the Tin Taters - sliced potato, bacon, and onion wrapped in foil. Home-baked bread also comes with your meal (did we mention to come hungry?). Add Crab Stuffed Shrimp, Grilled Cajun Shrimp, Jumbo Shrimp, or King Crab to your meat, if you wish. And it doesn’t stop at food. Don’t leave without trying cocktails like the Peacemaker, the Cowboy Cosmo, or the festive South Dakota Sunrise, which is served in a boot mug. If you’re not falling over from feasting, try Desserts by Vicki. What is it, you ask? We’re not sure, but it says to "ask your server." Open Monday-Saturday 5-9 p.m. FACEBOOK (605) 224-6469

NO PLACE FOR “WELL DONE” Mad Mary’s gives a fair warning that they're not the place for well done meat. It reads: “We do not guarantee medium well or well done steaks.” Think red or pink.

1601 HARRISON AVE. STE. 5

Owner Brian Trimble has been homebrewing for 15 years. Deciding it was time for the area to have a brewery, Brian and co-owner (and wife) Amanda opened their (patriotic) doors last April. The name Bill of Rights Brewery came from the couple wanting to celebrate the area and the culture of the capital. “We’re trying to bring the constitution and history back, which can be forgotten very easily,” said Amanda. “We name some of the beers based off of Pierre, our history, and our surroundings.” Beers swap out around every three months. During 605’s stop, they had Jalapeno Amber Ale, Ben Franklin Milk Stout, En-Joy Mint Stout, Long Ball Lager, Hefeweizen, and 1st Amendment Honey Basil. Try a flight of four for $6, or a flight of six for $9. Want to take some home? Purchase a glass growler for $30 or a stainless steel growler for $60. Refills are around $17, so make sure to save growlers for later. Wine is also available. Not in the mood, or you’re the (admirable) designated driver? There are delicious cream soda and root beer float options. T-shirts are also for sale, as well as honey balm, raw honey, honey sticks, and 10 lb. bags of ice for $1. One of the most unique features? All of the signatures from the Declaration of Independence are on the bar. Make sure to stop by for a variety of hand-crafted beers where the couple says families, friends, and neighbors can come together to enjoy each others' conversation, and to "celebrate our country's founding documents and those who serve to protect them.” Open Wednesday-Saturday 4-10 p.m. FACEBOOK (605) 280-5874

YES, THERE ARE TWO PEOPLE IN THIS MONTH’S HANG OUT ARTICLE. WHY? THE POWER DUO ARE THE LATEST ADDITIONS TO THE 605 MAGAZINE TEAM. EDITORIAL ASSISTANT KYLE DETERMAN AND ACCOUNT MANAGER TAYLOR HANSON ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT THE OUTDOORS, SOUTH DAKOTA, AND (MOST IMPORTANTLY) FOOD.

I spend most of my summer outdoors and traveling around the state. I own three lime-green kayaks [1] and love to trek down the Sioux River or Split Rock Creek. When I am not floating down the river, I can be found hiking around Great Bear or Palisades State Park in Garretson.

I love shopping at MODStash [4]. It's the perfect size to not be overwhelmed with all of the vintage clothes and home décor, and I can see everything they have to offer. They also have guys' clothes, which is a nice change of pace.

This past year I became a member at the Washington Pavilion, and it has been so much fun going to see new art and science exhibits. I also like walking around the Old Courthouse Museum and learning about South Dakota history. If I had to choose a restaurant to eat at every day, it would be Lam’s Vietnamese Restaurant [2]. They have the best spring rolls around town, and I love trying different plates.

When I'm not looking for my next vintage vest, you can find my husband and me chowing down at Bagel Boy [5]. We are suckers for the Breakfast Boy sandwiches, as well as their Monster Cookies. I’m never not in the mood for a good bagel. When there isn't a foot of snow on the ground, I love walking around the bike trails. I've grown up in Sioux Falls, and I'm still finding places or paths I've never seen. It's incredible how much beauty there is hidden in the middle of the city. 6

My favorite thing to do on a rainy day is check out an antique shop and find something unique to buy. I recently started collecting vintage cameras [3] and using them for decoration. Fun Fact: I toured the house of George Eastman, who invented Kodak. I love everything about traveling. From a small day trip in South Dakota to across the U.S. to international trips. Someday I would love to own a tiny home and travel across the states with my white labrador, Avery.

3

I love meeting my friends at Billy Frogs for karaoke. Even if we don't get up and belt Spice Girls, I'm never disappointed with other people's performances. And the service is always spot on. Any other time of the day, you can find me at my computer ogling over old pets at the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society [6]. Not only is the website always open on my computer, I may or may not have their phone number memorized. I’m obsessed with old dogs, so keep me in mind if you see one!

Realizing to Regroup BY TRACY KIRBY CRISTA BALLARD PHOTOGRAPHY

WE’VE ALL EXPERIENCED GOOD AND BAD COWORKERS, RIGHT? You usually know the good ones right away. They are the type who are pulling in the same direction toward the same goal while encouraging and uplifting those around them. They may bring snacks, coffee, and even (if the day calls for it) mimosas. They are good listeners, doers rather than talkers, and they push you to produce the best product you can. Then there are those types of co-workers who are perhaps, nicely putting it, less than ideal. Perhaps they ruthlessly compete, discourage, tear down, and skillfully make everything about themselves. They usually are the ones who steal coffee, tattle, stir up conflict, and, worst of all, take the last donut. Thinking about these two types, it’s easy to identify who in your life falls into

which category. And I think it’s safe to say, no matter what profession you find yourself in today, the type of co-workers you have can make or break your day-to-day when you’re in the thick of work and life.

rehydrate, and, of course, to sleep. Lucky for me, a couple of my co-workers (fellow mothers) joined me for this proverbial 24-hour coffee break, and by the end, we were ready to return to all our given roles and responsibilities with

that God found us worthy to put us in charge of several humans between us. There was not a hint of mompetition (yes, it’s a thing), or discouraging words, or a trace of insincerity.

IT WASN’T LIKE WE SAT ON A BEACH WITH ROCK HARD ABS DOWNING FROZEN BEVERAGES FOR 14 DAYS WITH NARY A WHISPER OF STRESS IN OUR SAILS. A few weeks back, I found myself running on fumes when it came to all my responsibilities and roles. I felt like I was on a treadmill on maximum speed, but at the end of the day, I looked to see where I had gotten. To my dismay, it was like I hadn't budged. I was still in the same spot, cleaning up the same mess, wearing the exact same outfit. And, for Pete's sake, I had the same stain on my shirt. So, I took a break. I ventured away from everything for 24 hours to regroup, refocus,

renewed energy, vigor, and stainless shirts, to boot. Why were we so refreshed? So reinvigorated? So encouraged? It wasn’t like we sat on a beach with rock-hard abs downing frozen beverages for 14 days with nary a whisper of stress in our sails. No. In fact, it was cold outside, and we just sat in a restaurant for hours upon hours listening to one another, telling each other our fears in how we may be messing up our children, asking for advice, laughing

It was simply a 24-hour retreat of fellow co-workers that allowed us to gently point each other back toward the goal and remind one another who we really are: Dearly beloved children ourselves who have infinite possibility and worth. Being reminded and remembering who we are is sometimes the only type of refreshment and reenergizing we will ever need.

revealed to her that the root of most all conflict today is just that: Perhaps, just perhaps, we’ve all merely forgotten who we are. We’ve forgotten our place in this world; our intrinsic precious value. When that happens, it’s easier for us to look at others and do the same. That is, forget who they really are, their intrinsic value. And ultimately we end up just being the donut-stealing bad co-worker to everyone around us. It’s February now. The temps are still obnoxiously low. But, regardless, this is the season and month of demonstrating our love to people. Maybe you too can steal away with your co-workers in life for 24 hours. Maybe you can’t. Maybe you can take whoever are your co-workers in life out for pizza. Whatever you do, listen to them, and remind them who they are. It might just be the refreshment and nourishment they need. Lord knows, it was for me. •

making these. I was down, sad, and stressed out more than I knew how to handle. When I’m going through something of that nature, I find therapy in delving myself into art, and creating things as a form of outlet or release. I was basically feeling sorry for myself, and the robots having a sorry and sad look to them is symbolic to how I felt in the beginning stages of creating them. WHERE DO YOU FIND THE MATERIALS FOR YOUR PROJECTS?

DÉCOR WITH FEELINGS

SORRYBOTS BY KYLE DETERMAN

74 \\\\\\\\\ F E B R U A R Y

MUSICIAN [SOULCRATE] AND PHOTOGRAPHER (GOOD LIFE PHOTO CO.) DAN EISENHAUER HAS DEFINITELY MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF THROUGH VARIOUS CREATIVE OUTLETS. FOR THOSE WHO KNOW HIM, IT WON’T BE A SURPRISE TO KNOW HE'S UP TO SOMETHING NEW. EISENHAUER INTRODUCED 605 TO HIS NEWEST PROJECT: SORRYBOTS. THESE ROBOT-ESQUE LAMPS WILL LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE, WHICH IS IRONIC SINCE THEY’RE SO SOMBER. WHERE DID YOU GET THE IDEA FOR SORRYBOTS? DAN EISENHAUER: I love vintage lighting. I started buying and collecting vintage lamps and rewiring them. I was always into robots. I loved Short Circuit when I was growing up, and Wall-E is one of my all-time favorite movies. So it just all came together. WHY THE NAME “SORRYBOTS”? DE: I was going through a personal and life-changing experience when I started

DE: I started with taking things apart from around my house. I cut the legs off my daughter’s chair and used them as robot legs for my first-ever piece. I started using vintage cameras I had collected as heads for them. I became obsessed with seeing robot limbs and bodies in everything in my house. When my daughter and girlfriend decided they wanted to keep things in the house, I started finding things on the side of the road: dumpsters, garage sales, thrift stores, and now people just give me things. I’m always on the lookout. AS A SOMEWHAT NEW IDEA, ARE YOU GOING TO STICK TO LAMPS, OR EXPAND? DE: I think for now I'm going to stick with making lamps. It came from the heart, and it was something I wanted to do, and I feel no need for expansion. When I feel the need to make something else, I will. But, for now, I’m just going to stick with this.

GOING FROM PHOTOGRAPHY TO THIS, WHAT KIND OF DIFFERENCES DO YOU NOTICE IN YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS? DE: Mentally, as an art, it feels the same. You have an idea or inspiration in your head, and you try your best to create it. Physically, the creative process is way different. I drill, cut, bend, weld, and figure out ways to make things fit together to create. Where, in photography, I see something and capture it within seconds. HOW LONG DOES EACH PIECE TAKE? DE: It all depends on the piece. I’ve had some I have finished in hours, and I have some that I started a month ago and I’m still working on. I’ve learned a lot about building and creating over the last few months, so I’ve become a lot more efficient. WHAT KIND OF IMPACT DO YOU WANT SORRYBOTS TO MAKE? DE: I don’t want them to be just another lamp sitting on the shelf. I want them to capture some sort of emotion. I want them to spark a reaction in people when they see them. I want them to inspire someone to create something. Create anything. I had no idea what I was doing a few months ago, but I learned, and I want people to be inspired to do the same.

MEET THE Artist MERECEDES NELSON

TYPE OF ARTIST: PHOTOGRAPHER ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

ARTIST AND SIOUX FALLS NATIVE MERECEDES NELSON SOMETIMES CAN BE M.I.A. FOR DAYS AT A TIME. BUT DON’T WORRY, SHE’S PROBABLY IN A DARK ROOM EXPERIMENTING. THE NATURE AND MUSICINSPIRED PHOTOGRAPHER OWNS DOEDEER PHOTOGRAPHY AND IS CONSTANTLY INSPIRED THROUGH ROAD TRIPS AND SEEING THE BEAUTY IN THINGS LIKE THE DECAYING. INTRIGUED? SO WAS 605, SO WE CHATTED WITH NELSON TO GET TO KNOW HER MORE, AND TO SEE WHAT SHE DOES WHEN SHE’S NOT DOCUMENTING SHOWS AT TOTAL DRAG OR PREPPING FOR HER NEXT GALLERY EXHIBIT.

THE MEANING BEHIND MY BUSINESS NAME… actually came from the title of one of my favorite songs

7 6 \\\\\\\\\ F E B R U A R Y

from a band that meant a lot to me for a large part of my life. The song is called DoeDeer, and the band is called Crystal Castles. If you go look it up to listen to it, just be warned that it’s a little abrasive. But I love it for the chaotic feelings it evokes. Plus, I also love deer and alliteration, so... MY LOVE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY STARTED… in high school. Especially my senior year. I begged my parents to buy me a DSLR (a “professional” digital camera) for my birthday at the end of my junior year. The next year I took a photography class, and my teacher, Mrs. Winterscheidt, really encouraged me to pursue photography in college, and that’s what I did! I’m forever so glad that I did. WHAT DRAWS ME TO NATURE IS… definitely not the bugs. But even with my phobia of bees and wasps, I always

feel drawn to nature. I believe nature is part of us, and the plants and animals are all so lovely and mysterious, and few places feel like a home to me as much as a thick forest of trees. I think I must have been a deer in a past life. MY RELATIONSHIP WITH TOTAL DRAG IS… that I started going to see shows there when they opened, and after a while I asked if I could bring my camera and take pictures during shows. After a few years studying fine art photography in Vermillion, I had moved back to Sioux Falls and had begun to stagnate with my art, and had even gotten to the point where I was hardly taking any photos. It was like I just couldn’t create anything, and it made me so incredibly frustrated and sad. I had taken photos of shows for a bit in high school and enjoyed that, so it seemed like a good way to force myself to get back into creating things. Pretty soon I fell in love with capturing

the energy of each show, the candid shots of the show-goers, and becoming great friends with the owners and other regulars. Now I consider Total Drag a second home. ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOMENTS DURING A LIVE SHOW WAS… that time I got to see Crystal Castles and every time Alice [Glass] went to crowdsurf, she stood right in front of and then over me. YOU CAN USUALLY FIND ME AT… Coffea [Roasterie] when I’m working, and Coffea when I’m not working. I spend most of my time there, walking all over downtown, maybe having a drink at Carpenter Bar, or having some quiet time in one of the many beautiful nature areas we have in and around Sioux Falls! MY INSPIRATION FOR STRANGE NATURE IS… I was in a color film

A R T S + FA S H I O N

O MEET THE ARTIST: MERECEDES NELSON course in college and needed to shoot a roll of film so I could have something to process the next day during class. I had no idea what to photograph, and no real motivation to leave the house. I have always used toys and little knick knacks or pretty things to decorate my home with, and at the time had a toy elephant, a hedgehog, and a fawn each sitting in one of my plant’s pots in my window. I took a photo of them, and then thought about how they all looked like they were having so much fun, and wondered what they would do next. I ended up moving them all over my apartment and capturing photos of their little journey. Fast forward to a little over a year ago, I found one of those old prints and thought it would be worthwhile to revisit that idea, and it definitely has been! CYCLES OF DECAY CAME TO BE BECAUSE… My roommate and I were in the introductory photo course, and we each had a 35mm film camera that was loaned to us by the incredible professor, John Banasiak, loaded up with black and white film. We went out with the intention of shooting at least one roll of film for class the next day. We drove around the back roads of Vermillion leading to Nebraska, but at one point, we both noticed something laying on the side of the road. She parked her car, and we curiously crept over to find a dead deer laying so peacefully next to the road. However, the deer had no head, and it was the strangest thing I had ever seen. It broke my heart, but also was so fascinating to me. Where did the head go? I kept returning to this deer for a month, documenting the decay, and found a morbid beauty in the way the flesh eventually becomes part of the earth once more, nourishing everything around it as it goes. After that, I stopped whenever I saw roadkill and documented the remains of the animals I found. I think I was trying to honor them in my own way, and this was the best way that I knew how.

Eventually as part of that, I began collecting and cleaning bones and using them in multimedia pieces and jewelry, while "Cycles of Decay" grew into something less of a study of death and more of me creating my own narrative for skulls and spirits and what happens once our life is gone. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE LOCAL ART SCENE IS… how much everyone encourages and helps each other out. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve had people reach out to me about getting my work displayed somewhere, or to participate in some kind of awesome project or sale. The passion is real and alive, and even if you’re just starting, there are more than enough people willing to help you grow as an artist. WHAT I WANT TO SEE MORE OF IN THE LOCAL ART SCENE IS… performance art, and just weird stuff happening a lot more in Sioux Falls. ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES TO GRAB A BITE OR DRINK IS… M.B. Haskett. It’s always the first place on my mind when I want to grab a bite to eat. Everyone who works there is a sweetheart, and they all are so incredibly good. Plus, the food is consistently delicious every time. BEHIND THE BAR OF COFFEA, I MAKE A MEAN… Bee’s Knees latte. Or cappuccino. Or just a shot of beautiful espresso. I love, love, love creating anything there. YOU CAN CURRENTLY SEE MY WORK AT… the Louise location of Coffea right now. You can always see more of my work on my website and other social media platforms. I’m also working on releasing a photo book this year from the last several years I’ve spent documenting the local music scene, so definitely keep an eye out. SOMETHING PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT ME IS… I don’t know how to ride a bike. But 2018 will be my year! •

53.3% is the percantage of the population in South Dakota that is married.

MY FRIEND WANTS TO GO TO LAS VEGAS THIS SPRING FOR A GUYS TRIP. IT SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD TIME, BUT ONE OF THE GUYS ALWAYS STARTS A FIGHT OR DOES SOMETHING STUPID. SHOULD I STILL GO?

I'M GOING NUTS. MY ROOMMATE IS AWESOME AND IS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS, BUT THEY NEVER HELP CLEAN OR WITH ANY YARD WORK. I'VE MADE SEVERAL NUDGES, BUT NOTHING IS CHANGING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

IT'S SO HARD TO MAKE VALENTINE'S DAY PLANS. WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL DATE?

JR: Have you seen The Hangover? That documentary proves Vegas is hell. Mom will never let me go.

JR: Go out of your way to not clean or do any yard work. Once it smells like a dumpster fire, your roommate will move out, and you can find someone new to do the work.

JR: She is 5'3''... blue eyes... black hair... has a huge... heart... makes a mean lasagna... let's dad hog the remote. Wait, what does Valentine's Day have to do with a date?

JW: Set a netted trap by the television. When your roommate tries to Netflix and chill, they Netflix and won't. Let them down when they promise they'll start picking up a rake.

JW: Tinder. My ideal date is Tinder.

JW: Just start a fight as soon as you get to the airport and quietly give him a "yo momma" burn. Hopefully he'll go in for the punch and security will handle the problem. It's natural selection. JT: It's up to you. If you go, go with a positive attitude and maybe it will rub off on him. Just know that you're running the risk of being stuck with him if he does have an outburst.

JT: Whatever you do, don't get passive aggressive. Just sit them down and be clear that it's teamwork. If they're not on the same team, it's time to find a new housing situation.

+

$68,419 is the average household income in South Dakota.

JT: That's a hard one. Honestly, staying in and watching a movie sounds great to me. Will that do it for her? Probably not. It's fun to do something different, like ice skating. Then you look soft, like Drake.

COST OF LIVING Compared to the rest of the country, South Dakota's cost of living is 4.00% lower than the U.S. average.

-58°

is the lowest tempature that occured in SD on Feb. 17, 1936 in McIntosh, northwest South Dakota.
