The South Porch

Unique Home Décor & Gifts for Every Reason, Every Season, and Lifestyle BY SANDIE WIESE PHOTOS BY CHANG PHOTOGRAPHY


estled in the South Dakota countryside, a pleasant fifteen mile drive from Sioux Falls, The South Porch is a must stop and shop. Offering Unique Home Décor & Gifts for Every Reason, Every Season, and Lifestyle, The South Porch is, indeed, located in the quaint and welcoming south porch of the home (built in 1918) of Heather Swenson, who along with co-owner and comrade in creativity, Jocie Davis, opened the shop featuring an ever changing and very eclectic collection of the handmade, from cute and quaint, to shabby-chic, and seasonal, with many creations one of a kind. A packrat of all that shows creative potential, Heather admits to possessing a barn “full of stuff I know I will use some day. I don’t know how yet, but I will eventually come up with something.” For Heather, and Jocie, being creative also goes hand in hand with being green and recycling, “We don’t throw anything away. We can make something out of anything if we really try!” And those somethings can be customized or

personalized to suit the buyer. Ninety percent of their wares are handmade by the two, and no two creations are entirely alike. Along with “customizing and personalizing anything you see in the store”, the two also can design wedding favors, birthday favors, and other special occasion accessories. Reserving open times to the second weekend of every month allows Davis and Swenson the time and freedom to create their future offerings. The two often brainstorm ideas together and “feed off of each other”, while still maintaining their enthusiasm. “We can’t wait until we see each other’s latest creations. We’re probably going to be each other’s best customer!” Old windows become painted works of art, initials, names, and messages adorn wooden candle holders, glass filled frames, and in the children’s section, crib décor, tooth fairy boxes, and hand painted holiday and time-out chairs. The South Porch also features the custom-designed Sagebrush line of jewelry by area artist Shelli Felderman.

Handcrafted items from a different area artisan are featured each month. “It’s so rewarding; even with the price and the time involved, it doesn’t seem like a job. It’s fun, being in business with a friend and it helps that we have lots of the same business ideas.” Even The South Porch’s uniquely designed business cards, sections of miniature wooden fences tied with raffia, call out a creativity that just can’t be fenced in; there’s no limit on the creative possibilities of this designing duo. “Home is where the handmade is.” Welcome to The South Porch.

is considered to be ‘the source’ for tile, marble, granite and limestone in the region. Now in our seventy-sixth year we offer, not only the finest natural one-of-a-kind stone products, quarried from select locations around the world, but also the expertise M of master tile setters and ar stone cutters to help bl e guide you in choosing the perfect product for a Lim lifetime of lasting es to natural beauty.


lthough the word “primi-chic” can’t be found in the dictionary (yet), Patty Arey, constantly uses the word, a combination of “primitive” and “chic”, to describe the style of wares offered in the newest shop on the 8th and Railroad Center boardwalk: Random Harvest. Named after its namesake book and movie, a 1940s classic starring Greer Garson and Ronald Colman, it’s just one of many old movies that Patty and her customers enjoy catching snippets of while at the shop. Formerly partners at Well...LaDeDa, Patty & Helen Broek describe the shop as a “mix of the old and the new…with little surprises here and there. Everywhere they look, customers will see something surprisingly unique.” Antiques and originals, the reclaimed and reproductions, the wood, the paint, the metal, glass, and stone, from the miniature to the very large, Random Harvest is truly the place where the curious

meets the creative — and unexpected treasures are abundant. “We try to create something new out of something old.” A former dresser becomes a book case; a former cupboard’s lower compartment becomes a custom designed comfy “kennel” spot for a sleepy dog; ladders become shelving units; burlap bags

labeled with contents and company names become pillows or totes; and stackable wood chicken nest systems are available singly or in multiples for those seeking creative organization. From the ornately carved to the broken and parts missing, Patty and Helen, often with the help of their husbands, restore, reclaim,

Made to love. Built to last. When it’s time for your new kitchen, visit the experienced, friendly designers at StarMark Cabinetry’s showroom. Working together, we’ll create the kitchen of your dreams.

repurpose, and redesign the ordinary into the extraordinary. They take special pride in the beautiful old ornately carved furniture, described as “lightened up and distressed so the pieces really come to life and pop; simply amazing!” Browsing at one level bursting with such unique creations is exciting enough, but at Random Harvest, space is more than meets the eye, and is taken to a whole other level...eye level and beyond...above and in between. Even the hook-filled ceiling and the exposed ductwork are not immune to becoming a blank canvas to Patty and creative finishing touches by creative cohort Helen. “Everything here is for sale, including the display furniture and fixtures,” says Arey, quickly adding, “with the exception of my dogs when they visit.” Swan Creek Candles, along with a line or two of dressings, glazes and southern cheese straws, not found in this region of the country, some with accompanying recipes, are also featured, as are the many creations of Helen and Les Broek, and shelf sitter signs, which Arey calls “permanent greeting cards”, printed with sayings both humorous and heartfelt are also available. Patty travels out East to market and wholesale artisan shows. She brings back “odd ball stuff ” she hasn’t seen, from places

I always see something new they’ve come up with.” Although Random Harvest doesn’t sell online, nor do they have a website, they do have an e-mail newsletter they welcome customers to sign up for. “We try to accommodate specific requests from customers and can keep an eye out for the requested items or we can sometimes also make an item. They are especially excited about the

shop’s location. “We’re pleased to see that Sioux Falls is not just expanding its outer edges, but is also keeping its core.” They liken a visit to 8th and Railroad Center to strolling a boardwalk. And when browsing Random Harvest, don’t be afraid of emitting an appreciative exclamation of awe at the inspired creativity, as according to Patty & Helen, “If we haven’t overwhelmed someone… if we don’t get an ‘oooh!’ or an ‘aaah!’ during their visit, then we haven’t done our job!”

arm up by a crackling fire and wake up to the aroma of fresh-brewed coffee and a hot breakfast while watching the glow of the sunrise — it’s all part of the appeal of sleeping under the stars. Even though it’s camping, that doesn’t necessarily mean “roughing it”. Take Pete and Carmen Dyar’s traveling experiences in their renovated 1966 Airstream Overlander as an example. They couldn’t be more fond of their home away from home for summer evenings and weekends. Within they’ve enjoyed hosting friends for cocktails and dinner, escaped inevitable downpours and discovered the unique appeal of camping Airstream-style. Much of the charm has grown from having a designer’s eye when it came to the decorative details inside. Carmen Dyar’s interest in renovating a vintage travel trailer was first piqued after seeing

...Dyar’s choice of an homage to the Black Hills, where she grew up, as her design scheme.

This inspiration led to a search for a vintage Airstream of their own and ultimately Dyar’s choice of an homage to the Black Hills, where she grew up, as her design scheme. She replaced the 1960s harvest gold upholstery and light blue curtains and the aftermarket Berber carpet with a selection of colors and textures reminiscent of the Old West. The new backdrop is styled in Victorian shades of burgundy and brown, with black and cream ticking-stripe curtains with a camp-friendly wood floor. The original design incorporates overhead storage units mimicking aircraft models — a common trait to Airstreams and other vintage trailers. This capacity allows Dyar to organize their glass, dinnerware and supplies and linens are readily available as needed at bedtime. Generally when traveling they prefer a campsite with electrical hook-ups. However, at times, when boondocking or in a campground that does not provide this option, they may take a generator along which recharges the systems as it runs. The Dyars have ventured regularly to local sites such as Newton Hills and comfortably as far as the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming and vintage trailer rally in Wisconsin. Vintage Airstream trailers are among the most widely recognized recreational vehicles in the world. Since the first Airstream was made in 1936, the “silver bullet” design has

appealed to campers for its beauty and durability. Many vintage Airstream trailers are still on the road today, often lovingly restored by their owners. A testament to the staying power of the Airstream, the iconic 1963 Bambi model was recently featured in the Museum of Modern Art collection. Last fall, the Dyars purchased a second Airstream, their own 1962 Bambi. The trailer is a diminutive 16 feet from the front hitch to the back bumper, a full ten feet smaller than their Overlander, yet still contains a kitchen and privy complete with shower within

the living quarters. With plans for a full renovation, rather than restoration, Dyar will use the Bambi as a traveling trunk show for her hand-painted clocks between camping excursions. Throughout their journeys the Dyars have encountered much endearment for Airstreams, from fellow “Airstreamers” waving and flashing headlights to friends who are inspired likewise – putting in requests for help finding an Airstream to call their own. The Dyars understand this endearment well, as they head down the road again to their next adventure.

How to Open a Bottle of Wine


know what you’re thinking: “No way. There’s no possible way of doing it. He’s just using this title to get me to read a cute story about some wine I’ve never heard of.” Now, some of you may be thinking outside the box: “OK, I got it! No corkscrew, no problem. All you need is needle-nose pliers, a monkey wrench, a compass, a spool of thread, some baking soda, and a stick of gum.” Creative, yes, but aside from any MacGyverlike contraptions, the only “tool” you need can be found in any household bathroom… But first, you have to read my cute story. I was 22-years-old, young and in love. I was heading towards my girlfriend’s one bedroom studio apartment in Somerville (pronounced SUH-MUH-VILLE) just 10 minutes outside of Boston. She had just graduated from nursing school, and I wanted to celebrate her achievement with one of the finest bottles of Italian Chianti: Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale. As I was driving through Arlington (AH-LINGTON) I had visions of my girlfriend’s face as the delicate wine poured into her glass, me looking into her eyes, raising our goblets in a

toast to her achievement. She was making dinner for us, and I was eager to impress her with this remarkable bottle of wine. Since I am from Florence, I was especially looking forward to introducing her to a distinguished representative of Tuscan wines. Traditionally, Chianti producers are more concerned with quantity rather than quality. I’m sure most of you remember drinking Chianti from a straw-covered fiasco that Italy became famous for, and that still haunts the Italian wine industry today. The wine from those flasks was typically light, flat, and so bitter that it would make your mouth pucker. In an effort to increase quality and to make the world recognize the depth of the Chianti and Chianti Classico zones in the heart of Tuscany, these regions were upgraded to D.O.C.G status in 1984. This Italian wine regulation system allows only certain geographical areas of Italy to have the designation of being “controlled and guaranteed” by the government. Chianti now follows those rules by submitting samples annually and must abide by criteria that limits wine makers to things like which grapes can be used,



Inside Taylor’s Pantry on the Corner of 41st & Minnesota


www.gsfw.com etc. for her | July 2009 33

where the grapes can be grown, and how long it can be aged. Ruffino, a pioneer in the hills of Chianti, got its start in 1887. As I was turning off of a rotary in Medford (MED-FED), I went over the finer points of the wine in my mind so I could really impress her. Ruffino Chianti Ducale was first produced in 1927. Actually made from blending 90% Sangiovese, 10% Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, this wine undergoes malolactic fermentation (a process that is used to reduce the acidity in red wines), and is then aged in oak casks for approximately 24 months. The wine is a pretty ruby red in color and has red fruit aromas with a hint of spice. Upon taste, this Chianti Classico is full-bodied and velvety with some nice mature fruit tones. Pairing is a cinch: Tuscan salami or prosciutto is its soul mate, but any pasta with a rich red sauce is also ideal. Knowing that my girlfriend was a making a spaghetti dish with a fresh tomato sauce, I knew this wine would make our special evening exquisite. I arrived promptly, with bottle in hand, and rang the doorbell. She answered with a smile, and we both went upstairs to her scenic third floor studio. Once up there, after inhaling the sweet aroma of fresh tomatoes and seeing her kitchen table decorated with folded cloth napkins, crystal wine glasses, and candles, everything looked perfect, and my bottle of wine was going to complete this picture perfect night. Then it dawned on me… what good was my wine going to do if I couldn’t get it open? I had forgotten the most invaluable tool to a wine lover: the corkscrew! I knew that she didn’t have one in her apartment because she wasn’t much of a wine drinker, and she was on a nursing school budget (“Let’s see, should I buy a stethoscope or a corkscrew?) So there I was, trying to impress a beautiful girl with a bottle of beautiful wine, and I had screwed up the evening beautifully. “Beautiful,” I thought to myself in a sarcastic tone. “Now what am I going to do?” If there’s one thing I’m not, it’s a quitter. I knew there had to be a way of getting the bottle open without having to act in desperation and break the bottle. I prefer my wine without shards of glass. Then a thought struck me: if there’s one person who would know if it was even possible to open a bottle of wine without a corkscrew, it would be my Dad. My Dad grew up in Aleppo, Syria, a place where resources were limited, and so he often had to fend for himself and rely on his

creativity. I had to get a hold of him, so, I excused myself by telling my girlfriend that I had to get my corkscrew out of my car. She said, “Hurry, I can’t wait to taste this wine with our dinner.” I responded, “Neither can I.” As I shut her door behind me I whispered to myself, “If I can get this bottle open.” Descending the stairs, I hit the speed-dial button and called my Dad on my cell phone. I quickly explained the situation, and he calmly answered, “Get a towel.” I said, “What?” He repeated, “Get a towel… and make sure you find a wall with a stud.” When I got back upstairs to the apartment I explained to my girlfriend that I had forgotten my corkscrew. Disappointed, she picked up the bottle and stared blankly at the detailed label. Then I heroically said, “But I think I can get it open.” She looked at me incredulously. I grabbed a towel out of her bathroom, folded it in half, then half again, and again until it was nice and thick. I cut the foil off of the top of the bottle with a knife, and then I located a sturdy wall. Facing the wall, I planted my feet, held the folded towel against the wall with my left hand, and held the bottle by the neck with my right hand. Then, I did just as my Dad had instructed; I lifted the bottle so that the bottom of the bottle was aiming towards the towel on the wall. And then I did the unthinkable: I closed my eyes and swung, striking the base of the bottle against the fluffy towel. I opened my eyes to see that the bottle was still intact and that my girlfriend’s jaw had dropped in amazement. I looked at the cork, and it was still snuggled tight in the bottle. So, I lifted the bottle and repeated the soft blows. After about 8 or 9 times, the unimaginable happened: the cork was actually sliding out. It works! I forget how many times I had to whack that bottle, but eventually enough of the cork slid out so that I could grab it with my fingers and twist the rest out. “Unbelievable,” I thought. I didn’t believe it either, but it is a true story. So if you’re ever caught without a corkscrew (and are conveniently locked in your bathroom with a bottle of wine) you now have the knowledge to impress friends at a party or just try it to see if it really works. By the way, my girlfriend in this cute story is now married to me. I guess that bottle trick won her over. Contact Riccardo at riccardot@westwardhocountryclub.com

Get a Handle on Dinner Welcome to a new column; a look at food with a twist. First, as you will note, it’s written by a guy. Next, it’s not a collection of recipes. Some months I’ll share some cooking tips, others I will pontificate about dining or ingredients or… well, who knows what will get my taste buds going? This month, I was thinking about summer and camping. I’ve got to confess, I don’t camp much. But when I do, don’t expect to find Oscar Mayer on the fire. If it’s worth starting a fire to cook it, it might as well taste good. On a recent weekend, I decided to treat the wife to some dining al fresco. The patio may not count as camping, but this meal will travel to the state park as

well as the backyard. Here’s a quick idea for a campfire meal that will make any foodie drool. Three courses you can cook on a grill in about the same time as a hamburger. And when you’re eating outside, table manners can slide a bit, so I think finger food. My favorite finger food? Lamb chops — an elegant meal that is a cinch to make. It’s meat with its own handle, a tidy little lamb-sicle. Start with a rack of lamb, frenched. If your butcher can’t help you out, you’re probably not talking to a butcher, just a guy in an apron at the megamart. When you get the rack home, cut between each bone and you’ll have eight pretty little chops. Each rack will serve two people,


so plan accordingly. Cover the chops with a little olive oil and healthy dose of fresh rosemary, parsley, kosher salt and cracked pepper. Throw these in a zip top bag in the chill chest and you’re on your way to KOA. Side dishes? What tastes great and makes your pee smell funny? That’s right, asparagus! When you’re at the butcher have him cut you a dozen or so slices of Prosciutto di Parma. Take 3 to 5 stalks of asparagus and wrap them tightly with a couple slices of prosciutto, then into a zip-top and the cooler. For an opening volley, try a grilled salad. Yep, you read that right. A grilled salad. Take a heart of romaine and cut it in half lengthwise. Drizzle lightly

Caesar Vinaigrette with some good olive oil and drop it on the grill for about a minute or two, just enough to get some color on the leaves. Top with some shaved parmesan and the Caesar vinaigrette; this is my idea of a salad! Now, when you’re at the camp site and all the other cooks grab their wienies, put the lamp chops and the asparagus soldiers on the grill for about three to four minutes each side. That’s it. While the guy with the bratwursts is still looking at tubes of trichiniosis, you’re opening a bottle of cabernet and enjoying a fourstar meal.

Green Travel


title A

s we settle into summer, there is still time to plan the perfect vacation getaway. We know the basic strategy: pick the destination, pour over travel books, scour the internet for the best-priced tickets, and don’t forget to pack the camera and the SPF. Adding a few steps to this checklist can help make your trip more eco-friendly. I’m not suggesting that you and the family bicycle to Disney World, but making a few easy choices can make your next trip, near or far, a bit more green. Many of us will find ourselves traveling across the country or even out of the country by plane. How can you lessen the impact of flying in a gas-guzzler? Pack light. Right now I am packing – well, procrastinating on packing – to fly to New York for my college reunion. While I am tempted to pack up my whole closet to make sure I have the perfect outfit for any occasion, that may be a bit much. I have to make myself pack multifunctional items so that my suitcase doesn’t add unnecessary weight to the plane and use even more gas. Packing light will also save you moolah since many airlines charge for checked baggage and serve up heavy penalties for exceeding weight limits.

Luckily, there’s another option to ease my guilt about packing two pairs of shoes: offsetting the carbon emissions of my air travel. While a typical roundtrip flight might release thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, you can fund a reduction equal to your flying output, counterbalancing the effects of your travel. Travel sites such as Travelocity and Expedia make it easy to offset your carbon footprint by giving you the option as you purchase your tickets. By searching online I found some offsets that seem to support South Dakota projects: Erasecarbonfootprint.com supports tree planting and Terrapass.com helps support the Sioux Falls landfill’s efforts to reduce the amount of methane released by the state’s largest landfill. Find a cause that means something to you to make those air miles count for something. Haven’t decided on your vacation yet? Think about a volunteer vacation that allows you to learn about and give back to the area you visit. Responsibletravel.com offers vacations ranging from turtle conservation and healthcare volunteering to sports coaching. By making your vacation work outside of the

So, your teen has started asking about getting teeth whitening done. If they’re asking for your permission, here’s what you should know: we recommend that teens only undergo a whitening treatment if all of their permanent teeth are fully grown in. If teeth have not fully emerged from the gum line, whitening may cause a two-tone effect once the teeth are completely exposed. We’ll be glad to talk to your teen about the best options for them.

box, you gain experiences and understanding of other regions and cultures. Even if you do choose to relax in Orlando instead of volunteering, you can do your part to be green in ways that won’t interfere with your vacation. Rent a hybrid car, or if that isn’t an option, keep your car only as big as your need to reduce emissions and gas costs. Book your lodging at a “green” hotel. There are more options than you think; one resource is greenhotels.com. You can also take matters into your own hands by talking to the front desk about reusing your sheets and towels instead of having them changed daily, taking speedy showers, and turning off lights and unplugging electronic gadgets when leaving the room. Also, don’t forget to give your hotel feedback on their green practices, or lack there of, such as recycling. Another green vacation option might be keeping your getaway very close. Save money and greenhouse gases (and stress over packing) by relaxing at home: turn off the cell phone, email and the nagging voice in your head. Explore the city’s bike trials,

zoo, museums and coffee houses that you are usually too busy to enjoy. Or watch movies, take naps and play games at home while avoiding the expense – and stress – of far off destinations. Another local option: camping. While the popup tent in the backyard is always an option, you can also explore the state’s many campgrounds (sdgfp.info/Parks/index.htm). A family adventure that includes hiking, swimming, roasting marshmallows and watching lightening bugs might just be the perfect fit. No matter where your path leads, make sure you stay on it; veering from marked paths and leaving a physical footprint could harm the ecosystem. Connecting with nature is what “green” is all about. Whether you are heading to a sandy beach, stressing over a reunion or camping out, incorporate some green-inspired travel tips. As you map out your perfect vacation getaway, maybe you’ll find yourself traveling on foot or by plane or jetski or surfboard or the New York City Subway System. However you travel, walk softly and enjoy the ride.

Native Plants & the Black Gold They Make



Enlightenment Sought and Found

raveling through a tunnel of fog, I recently visited my favorite Nature Conservancy site, the 200-acre Sioux Prairie*, northeast of Madison, only a half-hour from Sioux Falls. Blurred forms of shelterbelts and lonesome cottonwoods whizzed by. Then, a narrow strobe of light broke through the hunkering leaden ceiling and spotlighted my exact destination. When I arrived at the prairie, the tiny beam widened, vanquished the fog, and melted the gloom to a bowl of clear aqua. It was a message from the galaxies: You can see clearly now. Here find enlightenment. Up on this topside space, in this July month, be on the lookout for the following über worthy natives. Pale purple coneflower’s (Echinacea pallida) wispy and ghostly pink petals flutter around the sturdy center cone. The basic “daisy-like” flower is far more complex than what appears; it is a conglomerate of hundreds of tiny flowers. The prominent, stiff prickly orange center is really a mass of “disk” flowers. What surrounds them, what most of us think of as petals, are really individual “ray” flowers.

Silver Leadplant and Pale Purple Coneflower

Leadplant (Amorpha canescens) is one of few, truly woody natives found in the Northern Great Plains. Native Americans name it zitka’ tacan, “the bird’s wood” or “the bird’s tree,” for the sturdy perches it provides in sparsely treed ranges. Soft silvery foliage makes this lowly shrub easy to spot when scanning the complexity of forbs (flowering native plants) and grasses in the prairie. Tiny blue flowers radiate from a short stalk and showy orange anthers flagrantly protrude. As a legume, a member of the pea family, it fixes nitrogen to the soil for increased fertility.

Still searching for a good reason to finally lose the varicose veins?

You’re looking at two of them right here.

Well, summer is here once again. And if you’re like most people who suffer from varicose veins, you’re probably not looking forward to showing them off in public. But now is the perfect time to discover our medically advanced laser procedure, which can eliminate varicose veins without surgery. You’ll experience minimal discomfort and no downtime. What’s more, results are immediate and last forever in 97% of cases, so you’ll still have plenty of time left this summer to show off those brand new legs. Don’t let another summer slip by with unnecessary varicose veins. For more information, call Veradia at 338-9740 and schedule a private consultation with Dr. Matthew Casey.

Purple Prairie Clover

Purple prairie clover (Dalea purpurescens) sports tiny, glowing fuchsia that whorls around small, elongated cones. But tiny doesn’t mean reticent - showy yellow stamens intensify the glow. It is also a legume and fixes nitrogen. A recent selection from the University of Nebraska was named ‘Stephanie’ for the wife of the governor. It was a 2002 selection for Nebraska Great Plants for the Great Plains. There’s much more to the Sioux Prairie’s wave-like terrain. Over two hundred other native plant species bloom in sequence throughout the growing season. Upland sandpipers, bobolinks, redwing and yellow-headed blackbirds call out assorted trills and tunes. But for promised nirvana, one must look beneath the obvious – and discover the hidden world of prairie roots – roots that descend ten feet and more - roots bursting at the seams into the topside world. It was like being roused from an ignorant sleep when I, a lifelong prairie resident, was enlightened to the worth of prairie roots. Thousands of years of their decomposition, along with the topside plants they support, created the valuable resource known simply as “topsoil.” This “black gold” is to eastern South Dakota what gold ore is to the west. Topsoil is eastern South Dakota’s most valuable natural resource - and we treat it like dirt. Like a painter who seeks reflections and shadows, I no longer think of the prairie without imagining the potential of its depth. What is the potential of prairie depth? Besides the deep rich topsoil, water storage! The underground world is the happenin’ place for securing our natural rainfall and snowmelt! Where vast roots descend so deeply, their penetration opens up conduits that transport precipitation, which recharges

groundwater, and the many-feet deep topsoil itself is a porous reservoir. To great misfortune, “developments” of the past few decades have been depleted of much of their natural topsoil. It has been strip-mined away. Much of the natural precipitation of these sites ends up in the storm sewer, sent downstream. The prescribed tree for sick, topsoil-poor sites has been ash, because it is one of few that survive, without extra planting effort and expense, when roots are lowered into nutrient starved, compacted subsoil. Most of us now know what fate awaits all ash trees with the portended arrival of the emerald ash borer. The question among state and city tree specialists is not “if ” our ash trees will die, but “when.” One day, we will wake up to recognize urban topsoil depletion as an urban environmental disaster, and we will unite to value “black gold” and its underestimated function of water storage. Maybe, too, ubiquitous water guzzling Kentucky bluegrass will be replaced by sweeps of diverse native plants growing over deep reservoirs of topsoil. This will probably not occur as an epiphanous burst of flames or sudden leap of understanding - it will be more like that little pinhole that expanded to a gorgeous day. *Directions to the Sioux Prairie: Follow Interstate 29 to the Madison exit.

Split Rock Lighthouse sits atop a rugged cliff on the north shore of Lake Superior, in Minnesota.


Explore the Great Lakes T

he Great Lakes are a chain of freshwater lakes on the Canada and the United States border, connected through channelways. Consisting of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario, they form the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth. They offer beaches, dunes, islands, and lighthouse-dotted resort towns. Because of their size, some people refer to the Great Lakes as inland seas. If you stood on the moon, you could see the lakes and recognize the shapes of each individual body. This system of lakes helps shape the economy, landscape, climate and quality of life not only for those who live on the shorelines, but for those living miles away. Bordered to the north by Ontario, Canada and Minnesota and to the south by Wisconsin and Michigan, Lake Superior is the largest of the Great Lakes, and has the largest surface area of any freshwater lake in the world. Stretching 350 miles from west to east and 160 miles north to south, Lake Superior’s shoreline is nearly 2,800 miles long. It is about the same size as the state of Maine. It contains almost 3,000 cubic miles of water, which would be able to fill all of the other Great Lakes plus three more Lake Eries. Because of its size, Superior has a retention time of 191 years. Retention


time measures how long water stays in the lake, based on volume and the mean rate of outflow. It is the coldest and deepest of the five Great Lakes. The deepest point of Lake Superior reaches 1,332 feet, with the Chicago Sears Tower being able to fit with only a few floors sticking out above the water. Referred to by some as the Greatest Great Lake, Lake Superior is utterly magnificent. The Superior Hiking Trail is one of the most sought after trails in the country, with snow season bringing skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing and more, and the summer season bringing outdoor events such as waterfront music festivals, picnics, racing, and other activities attracting thousands year-round. Lake Superior has the cleanest, clearest and coldest water of the Great Lakes, with many shipwreck locations making Superior a favorite site for scuba diving. Duluth/Superior is the busiest inland port in the country, with more than 1,000 vessels visiting annually. The larger cities on Lake Superior include the twin ports of Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin, Thunder Bay, Ontario, and Marquette, Michigan. Bordered by the states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan, Lake Michigan is the only Great Lake entirely within

the United States. At its deepest point, the lake reaches 925 feet. It is approximately 118 miles wide and 307 long and it includes more than 1,600 miles of shoreline, with many sandy beaches to enjoy. Lake Michigan is inseparable from Lake Huron, joined by the wide Straits of Mackinac. The Mackinac Bridge (the “Mighty Mac”) connects Lake Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas. Chicago is the largest city that lines Lake Michigan, and annually imports fresh sand to replenish its popular city beaches. Lake Huron is bordered on the east by Ontario, Canada and on the west by the state of Michigan. It is the third largest fresh water lake on earth and has a shoreline length of 3,827 miles, characterized by shallow, sandy beaches and the rocky coasts of Georgian Bay. It is the longest shoreline of the Great Lakes, counting the shorelines of its 30,000 islands. Located in Lake Huron is Manitoulin Island, the largest freshwater island in the world. Bordered on the north by Ontario, Canada, on the south by Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York, and on the west by the state of Michigan, Lake Erie is the smallest of the Great Lakes in


volume and is just less than 10,000 square miles with 871 miles of shoreline. The average depth of Lake Erie is about 62 feet, allowing the lake to quickly warm in the spring and summer and freeze over fast in the winter; therefore it is the warmest and most biologically productive of the Great Lakes. Lake Erie is a popular spot for a weekend getaway or family vacation. It is best known for great fishing, boating, water sports and its numerous resort islands. The islands are a great place to find golfing, wine tasting, historical sites, and more. Marblehead Lighthouse on Lake Erie was built in 1822 and is the oldest active light tower on the Great Lakes. Lake Erie is home to one of the world’s largest freshwater commercial fisheries, which is widely considered to be the best in the world. One of the most popular ways for visitors to enjoy fishing on Lake Erie is through one of its fishing charters, which are usually offered between April and October. Charters include a fully equipped boat, an experienced fishing guide and supplies. Other ways to enjoy Lake Erie include scuba diving, snorkeling, or visiting Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio.

Michigan’s extensive coastline makes it easy to have a relaxing day at the beach.

Lake Ontario is bordered on the north by Ontario, Canada and on the south by Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula and by the state of New York. It is the only Great Lake that does not border the state of Michigan. It holds four times more water than Lake Erie, ranking fourth among the Great Lakes in maximum depth. The Waterfront Trail along Lake Ontario includes peaceful countryside, small towns and big cities, allowing you to discover the Lake Ontario waterfront while enjoying both culture and nature. Lake Ontario is located at

the base of Niagara Falls, which is a very popular scenic attraction for many tourists. With so many things to explore in the Great Lakes area, it would be impossible to discover everything with one short trip. But the Great Lakes Circle Tour is a great way to start. It is a designated scenic road system that connects all of the Great Lakes as well as the St. Lawrence River. It showcases unique natural features of the Great Lakes, including dune-lands, cliffs, waterfalls and more.

Menstrual Madness BY LAURIE B. LANDEEN, MD, FACOG for Sanford clinic Women’s Health


o you frequently have heavy periods that last more than five to seven days? Does heavy bleeding keep you from enjoying your life to the fullest? If so, you’re not alone – and there are treatment options available to you. One in five women in the United States suffers from the embarrassment and awkwardness heavy bleeding can cause. While it is not a life-threatening condition, heavy bleeding can certainly disrupt a woman’s quality of life. At times, the condition can stop women from engaging in what is important to them — from social activities to their children’s school functions. Excessive bleeding, also called menorrhagia, can be caused by polyps or fibroids in the uterus or enzyme deficiencies. Until recently there were only two

You don’t have to suffer from heavy, long periods. types of treatments for heavy bleeding: hormonal treatments or surgery, often a hysterectomy. Today, thanks to advances in surgical technology, there are less invasive options including the MirenaŽ IUD and endometrial ablation.

The MirenaÂŽ IUD Reduces Bleeding and Provides Birth Control The MirenaÂŽ IUD is most often used for reversible long-term birth control, but is also a suitable treatment for heavy bleeding. It works by thinning out the uterine lining which results in very light or no bleeding. MirenaÂŽ can be used to reduce menstrual flow even if a woman does not need it for birth control. It can be placed right in the office without any anesthesia.

Endometrial Ablation is a Non-Invasive Alternative to Surgery An endometrial ablation can be used

for women who need surgical treatment but want to avoid a hysterectomy. The procedure eliminates the lining of the uterus using thermal energy. It requires no incision and can be performed in an office or as outpatient surgery. It also has high rates of effectiveness and over 90% patient satisfaction. Physicians across the country are choosing this treatment because it controls heavy bleeding without hormones or complex surgery. “I am pleased to offer this procedure to my patients,� says Zane Craig, DO, FACOG an OB/GYN specialist at Sanford Clinic Worthington. “My patients appreciate the opportunity to treat excessive bleeding with a quick procedure that has a short recovery time,� he says. The first ablations were done in the early 1980’s and many new generations of devices have come into the market over the last decade. The most widely

used device is called NovasureÂŽ. It is an intrauterine mesh system with the shortest ablation treatment time of approximately 90 seconds. Clinical trials for NovasureÂŽ confirm a success rate of 91% and a patient satisfaction rate of 90%. Is endometrial ablation an option for you?

Expert Advice for Parents of Picky Eaters BY DONNA FARRIS for Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center

Picky eating is a common behavior that crops up during toddlerhood, said Dr. Kara Bruning, pediatrician with Avera McGreevy Clinic in Sioux Falls. “It’s a way they can control their environment. There are so many things a toddler is not in control of, but they can decide what to eat or not to eat.� Pickiness may center on anything that looks or smells different, or a specific food group, like vegetables. “Sometimes it varies. A child may eat green beans one day, but the next day be unwilling to touch a green bean with a 10-foot pole.� Usually, pickiness is something children will outgrow, and it’s not something to worry about. Some parents fear their children aren’t getting adequate nutrition, and will go to any length to coax the child to eat a decent meal. As far as your child’s health is concerned, there’s nothing wrong with cooking to suit your child’s whims. But that can be inconvenient for the parent, it may not fit with your family’s lifestyle, and allows the child to stay in control, Dr. Bruning said.

“Kids are not going to starve themselves, but they are very smart,� Dr. Bruning said. “They won’t eat breakfast but know if they wait an hour they’ll get a cookie. And then they won’t eat lunch but know that if they wait they will get fruit snacks. Kids will eat if they’re hungry enough. But they know how to work the system.� Giving a multivitamin each day helps ensure kids are getting the nutrients they need. It’s the parent’s job to provide healthy food choices for their children; it’s the kids’ job to eat it, Dr. Bruning said. “Don’t try to force feed your child, or make it a battle of wills. That’s not going to help your cause.� Serve healthy meals three times a day, or even several times throughout the day, Dr. Bruning said. “It’s OK if your child’s a grazer, that’s very normal, especially for toddlers.� Don’t feel like your child has to eat every food group at every meal. If she only eats macaroni and cheese at lunch, try some fruit at snack time. “Try to be creative on how to get different foods into their diet.� Place a variety of foods in small amounts on your child’s plate. If he doesn’t eat the vegetables, don’t make an issue of it, but keep trying. “Some kids will go for disguising vegetables with a little cheese sauce or ranch dressing. That’s not as healthy as plain vegetables, but if they’ll eat it, it counts,� Dr. Bruning said. Kids who won’t eat cooked vegetables may eat them raw. Even if kids leave certain foods untouched meal after meal, keep placing it before them, Dr. Bruning said. “It usually takes

trying something 10 times to decide it isn’t so bad.� Peer influence often helps – a reason why kids often eat better at daycare than at home. Try inviting other children the same age over to eat, Dr. Bruning suggested. While parents tend to worry about their children eating too little, the bigger problem in our society is overindulgence and obesity. “Obesity can happen at any age,� Dr. Bruning said. Type 2 diabetes is becoming more prevalent in kids. Doctors are starting to see elevated cholesterol in kids, and even hardening of the arteries. Children need “baby fat� under a year of age. But if a 2-year-old is off the growth charts in weight, it might be time to consider his or her eating habits. “It’s often the family’s eating habits that contribute to childhood obesity,� Dr. Bruning said. “Just say no� to high fat or sugary drinks and snacks. As a family, make better food choices, and place a priority on staying active. “Go for a walk together, swim, play soccer or something else to get more active.� While children need adequate food to grow and thrive, don’t encourage them to eat too much. “Clean your plate� is a rule many people grew up with, but it’s better to let children stop eating when they’re full. “Hang in there,� is Dr. Bruning’s bottom line advice to parents of picky eaters. “Most kids grow up to be good eaters.� For more health information for children and parenting advice, go to www.AveraChildrens.org.

are a few tips to keep their summer happy and healthy. Keep them cool. Pets have to pant out the hot air and breathe in the cooler air to keep their body temperatures down. Always

have a fresh supply of water available, shade and do not leave them in the car. Do not play or exercise during the warmest part of the day; instead walk in the early morning or late evening. Even your outside pets will enjoy a short time in the air conditioning to cool off. Fireworks and pets do not mix! During the first week of July, it may sound like a small war in your neighborhood. The lights and booms of fireworks can be extremely frightening to your pets. Provide them with a quiet dark area to avoid the fireworks. Some pets even benefit from tranquilizers to help them cope. We also see burns and dental problems in dogs that bite the fireworks as they explode, so keep them away. Picnics and backyard barbeques are great fun. Every family and every pet has a different view of table scraps, bones and feeding pets. If your pet is not used to table food or is given too much they can become very ill. The pancreas can become inflamed from too rich of a meal. It can mean a belly ache, vomit or even bloody diarrhea. If Uncle John is coming over, and he likes to “share� it might be best to keep the pets away from the food. Family vacations, what can I say? If you are a dog that likes car rides, being in a small area with your favorite people is great. If you are a dog that dislikes rides, it could be the longest week for everyone involved. It is very important that your stops and destinations are “pet friendly�. Many hotels and resorts welcome

pets, but make sure before you leave. It is also important to take along enough food and medications for the trip. Bugs can make a great day uncomfortable. Ticks love to attach in the tall grass and woods. Closely check your pets after being in those areas. If you camp, live in the country or exercise in wildlife areas you should use Promeris or Frontline to protect your pet. Fleas are always looking for a new meal and should also be prevented on any pets that get outside. There are many products to help with fleas, but make sure they are safe and appropriate for your particular situation. Getting a new hairstyle for the summer? Just like us, a shorter hair cut can keep you cool. If you have a long haired cat or dog, a shorter style for the summer will keep them cool and be easier for you to keep clean. If their hair is matted it can cause skin infections in the heat and humidity. It will still have plenty of time to grow back before the snow flies. Boarding at the pet resort can be fun. If your pet does not like to travel, the destination is not appropriate or you will be too busy to take care of them, a stay at the resort is a great option. Make sure your vaccinations are current, including that for kennel cough and that you bring your own diet and treats along. Also make sure that they have phone numbers for you, a contact in town and your veterinarian if they have a problem. Summer is short, so have fun and enjoy the warmth.

here are plenty of details that come with planning a wedding. Save-the-date cards and invitations are some of the most common things that first come to mind when starting to think of the process of getting married. Communication with guests before the wedding is crucial in order to ensure that they know ahead of time when the event will be and the details. Save-thedate cards usually only consist of a date, so the recipients can mark the day on their calendars. Invitations follow the save-thedate cards with additional information about the big day. Your wedding save-the-date cards are usually the first thing people see regarding the look, feel and style of your wedding. It is important to make them personalized to your taste, perhaps “I nothe longer have cellulite reflecting colors andvisible the theme of your wedding day. If you on my body and after having 3 are not yet sure of your theme, but want to send the notice out kids that is pretty amazing to me!� as soon as possible, you can still develop a save-the-date that – Kelly

is memorable and a good representation of you and your fiancĂŠ. There are literally hundreds of design ideas when it comes to wedding stationary and communication. Keep it fun and think about using some creative ways to make your save-thedate stand out and give your friends and relatives something unique to hold on to. Some popular trends include creating photo greeting cards from your engagement session, using your photos on products like magnets, mini calendars, or even a funny face photobooth strip holding up a sign with information in each photo box. It is your job to have some fun and research these ideas or even come up with a completely unique idea of your own. Once your save-the-date card has been sent out, you will need to begin thinking about the wedding invitation. Traditional etiquette for a wedding invitation requires that you make sure guests will know the who, what, where, when and how of the event. The invitation will typically convey the formality and style of your wedding. It is up to you whether or not you want to order high-end professional cards or go for a homemade creation. This is where your wedding budget comes into play. In order to decide on the type of invitations you will be sending

out, you need to look at some key details of your wedding. The size of your wedding can be represented by the invitation. If the ceremony is going to be small, you could use smaller handwritten invitations that set an intimate tone for the wedding. If you plan on having a larger wedding, the invitation could use a more extravagant design and size. Another detail to consider is the formality of the ceremony. If you plan on having a formal event, think about using more traditional designs and colors that will not confuse the guests if it is meant to be a black-tie affair. Something else to consider is your wedding theme. If you do have a theme, the invitations are a great way to incorporate it. Think about modern versus traditional styles, fonts that match your theme or personalities, and the season of the wedding date. All of these things can tailor your invitations and make them unique. Be sure to take time and do some research on prices. If you are going to get your invitations professionally made, order ahead of time and ask for a sample card to be sent for your approval. This is a good way to see the quality of the printer’s work as well as proofread your card and make any desired design changes. Think about ordering in “off season,� which is usually October

through January, in order to find some good deals. Homemade wedding invitations have become more popular due to the large number of people with computers. Many helpful resources are available to create custom invites, including invitation kits, easy-to-use computer software, and handcrafted accessories that can be found at any craft store. These come in handy if your wedding has an uncommon theme or if you want your unique personalities to shine. There is a plethora of options when it comes to wedding stationary to fit your theme. Instead of staying with a flat piece of paper, add embellishments like ribbon, a charm, or even paper flower petals. How you word your invitations is also very important. For example, when the ceremony is held in a place of worship, “the honor of your presence” or something similar is commonly used, whereas “the pleasure of your company” is used often when the wedding is held in a different location. There are many spelling

and wording combinations to be considered when writing your own wedding invitations. Searching the internet will give you many examples of wedding invitation etiquette that will fit your own personal needs. People are known to skim invitations, so keep it short and simple to avoid any confusion and stick to straightforward wording. After the invitations have been created it is time to send them out. A good timeline to mail out the invitation is three to six months in advance of your wedding date, giving guests plenty of time to clear their schedules and make travel arrangements. Standard wedding invites traditionally include the invitation, the response card, and the response card envelope. Check the United States Postal Service website for standard mail sizes and any possible extra charges when choosing your envelope size. Remember to keep your invitations fun and unique and you will surely get some favorable feedback from your guests.

n audience of four-year olds giggles with delight as their preschool teacher waltzes around the room wearing an ‘80s style, puffy-sleeved, ballerina pink, prom gown. Blessing her admirers with a sparkly, silver wand held in cramping hands, Jean Magnuson sings a silly song while pretending to be a Fairy Godmother. Today is the Halloween party at First Baptist Preschool. “The best advice I’ve ever been given is to always keep your sense of humor,” Jean said. “Always remember the lighter side of things.” This advice has remained a prevalent part of Jean’s everyday life as she applies it not only in her job as a preschool teacher, but instills the value in her kids and abides by it in her everyday life. Jean’s son, Michael, will attest to this. “The best advice she has ever given me is to not take life too seriously and be able to laugh at yourself,” Michael said. Jean, a petite, animated woman, who often sports a pony tail and

baseball cap, does indeed laugh often and hard. Born in Beresford, South Dakota, Jean attended Augustana College for early childhood and elementary education. “I always say that teaching preschool is my calling,” Jean said. “It’s right where I’ve always wanted to be.” On August 19,1988 Jean married Lee Magnuson and they had their first child, Michael, in 1990. Shortly after giving birth, Jean was shocked to be diagnosed with arthritis. She was 29 years old, and spent her first Mother’s Day at the Mayo Clinic. Doctors predicted Jean would be confined to a wheelchair within a number of years. As the disease mercilessly attacked her body, Jean experienced excruciating pain, while simultaneously trying to take care of her infant son and grasp the task of being a new mother. Jean said she became physically unable to pick Michael up and hold him, so she would lie him on a blanket and drag him across the floor with her teeth. Also unable to remove the tape off of diapers, Jean would use her teeth to change her baby’s diaper. “He would just giggle the whole time,” Jean said. “He always had me right at eye level and rolling around with him.” This was undoubtedly a challenging period in Jean’s life, or what Jean would call “a dilemma.” But, what should have been inhibiting darkness creeping along with an ugly disease, was instead a determined, upbeat attitude.

Melissa Austad, a co-worker of Jean’s, said this attitude is what makes Jean remarkable. “I admire many things about Jean, but most of all her attitude,” Melissa said. “She can take any situation and turn it into a learning experience, an opportunity to grow…she is so thankful for what she has.” Jean and Lee hoped their family would eventually include more children, but were hesitant about the hereditary nature of arthritis and what having another child would do to Jean’s body. After numerous doctors’ consults and finding out that her type of arthritis is not hereditary, Jean and Lee had two more daughters: Emily was born in 1992 and Liz in 1995. As her kids grew up, with the help of a strict diet, Jean’s arthritis didn’t bother her quite so much, and she successfully kept up with three busy kids. Her children do not remember their mom being a physically restricted parent at all. “She never lets anything get in her way,” Emily said. “Even though she has arthritis she never really lets it show to us. She’s always strong.” Michael says his favorite childhood memories of his mother are of when they would chase each other around the living room sword-fighting with empty wrapping paper tubes. Liz said her favorite memories of her mom are of when she was little and her siblings were at school, they would have picnics on the backyard swingset. “About a year ago, she woke me up early and brought me out to the swingset, (where we didn’t fit),” Liz said. “She had breakfast already out there. It was fun, and just reminded me of all the great times we’d shared.” Jean never fails to appreciate simple acts of paying special attention to every individual and acting with kindness. “I most admire the fact that she is always there for everybody,” Michael

said. “It doesn’t matter who it is, if they need something she is always there.” Jean looks to figures such as Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Theresa, and her grandmother for inspiration. “I also admire my preschool students,” Jean said. “When they come on the first day of school and don’t know me, to let go of that hand takes a lot of courage.” Courage is inarguably something Jean possesses a great deal of, as this past year her arthritis has gotten particularly bad. She attempted a chemo treatment last fall that did nothing but make some of her hair fall out, and also tried insulin injections throughout January. Nothing seems to be helping, and the pain is in no way predictable nor preventable. But, she never complains, and she still believes she will never be confined to that wheelchair doctors predicted would be inevitable years ago. Jean still finds the time and the willpower to cook football team dinners for her son’s teammates, attempt to make cheese with her preschoolers, and dance in the car with her teenage daughters on the way to a Jonas Brothers concert. “I think the thing I admire most [about Jean] is her inner strength,” said Lee, Jean’s husband. “Her arthritis is very painful, but she makes the best of it and doesn’t complain.” This resilience, ever-positive attitude, and down-to-earth nature has resulted in a plethora of admirers who look to Jean for inspiration. “Jean has a certain Jean-ness,” Melissa said. “I have not met anyone like her in my life. She is gentle, and spunky, witty and kind all at the same time. You can laugh with her, cry with her, and always know she is there to support you. She is superwoman — in mom, teacher, leader, wife, and friend forms. I’m lucky to know her.”

Hayward School





HAYWARD SCHOOL For more than a century, the educational needs of children in this area have been served by six successive schools. On April 17, 1872, the Wayne Township District No. 10 School Board voted to “build a sod school house.� Teacher Elsie Barnes held classes in the first school, a hillside dugout, from mid-August until mid-November. In 1873, a small frame building was moved next to the dugout to become the second school. It was used during the spring and summer but then was destroyed by a tornado. The board immediately built a replacement, and the third school was anchored firmly “on a stone foundation.� To meet increased enrollment, Oaks School was built at Fifth and La Mesa in 1889. This fourth school boasted a bell tower, two stoves, and a large dictionary. Moved to Twelfth Street and Valley View Road in 1926, it served the district for a total of 64 years. After O. A. Hayward donated two acres of land at 6100 West 12th Street, a fifth school was constructed in 1953 and named in his honor. Because of a gas leak, the building was abandoned in 1986. The present school, the sixth, opened two years later.

1872 Hillside Dugout School This drawing is an artist’s conception of the original Wayne Township District. No. 10 dugout school. It had been carved into a hillside, and some of its walls were built with layers of sod. The dugout was located west of the present Hayward School.

Oaks School - District #10 Shown is teacher Helen Webster, ca. 1914. The school was named for Daniel W. Oaks, the first District No. 10 treasurer. Oaks was a one-room school, and all eight grades were taught by one teacher. No source of water existed in the early years, and older boys were assigned to walk to nearby farms to carry water back to the school. Plum trees from nearby Skunk Creek were cut to use as the annual Christmas tree and then were adorned with paper chains, popcorn, cranberries, and painted wishbones! Oaks School served area pupils for 64 years.
