systems, and audio books — all at greatly discounted prices. Relocating a little bit west of their former 10th Street location just under a year ago, the Last Stop CD Shop has expanded their space to five times as much as at their previous location.

The business that co-owner Brian began as a hobby when going to school, led him to quit farming with his family and grew so quickly that he and wife Jeanine then started a small store in Marshall, MN. That store grew so rapidly, that they came to Sioux Falls to search out similar stores, and finding none, decided they would start one. This year marks the 15th anniversary of their stores in Sioux Falls. Used books in good condition of all genres. Both hard cover and paper back are divided into a huge variety of sections labeled in categories from biography and memoir, mystery, sci-fi, humor, and much more. The children’s section features

• Quit in one session and without symptoms of withdrawal • Sessions are completely personalized to the client’s needs • Specializing in Anxiety and Smoking Cessation


hen my wife, Ruby, and I contacted Rebecca about Hypnosis to aid in quitting smoking, I must admit I was a little skeptical. It was truly amazing after one session exploring all the negative aspects of smoking, neither Ruby nor I have suffered any withdrawal or deep cravings to smoke. After smoking for 40 years each and trying various methods to quit, I am so glad we were fortunate enough to come in contact with Rebecca. That was November 11, 2005.” – John and Ruby Schaefer, Nevada

small tables and chairs where they can read, or play checkers or chess. The enormous selection of CDs, movies (including newer release), DVDs, Blue Rays, VHS, video games, and audio books is similarly labeled, and displayed by category on product specific racks in the music and entertainment section. Overwhelmed by the choices? Staffers can quickly help you find just the item you are looking for with the computerized system, which lists everything in stock at both stores. Last Stop CD Shop both buys items for its inventory as well as sells them. No appointment is needed, and sellers are paid at the time of their transaction. “We guarantee everything that’s sold, and

we treat our sellers and buyers well, and they do the same for us.” And if the prices aren’t low enough already, there’s the annual Half Off Sale, with everything 50% off — an event some of the staff celebrates by shaving their ample beards half off. For those who want to sit and chat, browse through a potential purchase, a full service coffee shop on the upper level features coffee made from local roaster Black Sheep’s beans, and a variety of locally made pastries. Creative and contemporary photographic word art created by Jeanine is displayed throughout the store. The displayed pieces are available for purchase, and she also welcomes custom orders.

Making their store unique, says Brian, is “That everything is all in one place, arranged to easily be found. We get all of our inventory from the local area.” And they deal in sheer volume. According to Deutz, “we easily take in a thousand items a day. Our customers can save on all items, we recycle, and are locally owned and operated; all the money stays in the community.” Also unique to a business of this kind, is the staff, many of whom are long term. Some have been working there eight to twelve years. Make sure to make a stop at the Last Stop CD Shop — it will become a favorite stop.

First Adventure Learning Center BY SANDIE WIESE | PHOTOS BY PETER CHANG


here is no greater adventure than that of childhood…and First Adventure Learning Center aims to make sure that’s true especially when parents are away at work. Located just two blocks off of I-29, on the northern edge of Sioux Falls, the daycare and preschool’s owners, Jessie and Ryan Holte, chose that location because of the need for such a facility in the area. Right in the middle of a residential development

and several businesses who employ large numbers of workers, the rapidly developing location makes it convenient for parents to have their children cared for very near to where they work. Jessie, who went to school for elementary education, found that after having her daughter she wanted to stay home with her. She ran a daycare/preschool in her home for five years.

business due to the need in the area, they decided it was something they wanted to do. First Adventure Learning Center accepts children ages four weeks to five years old, a maximum enrollment of fifty, with each age/development group assigned to their own room equipped with all things age appropriate, and of course, loads of fun! Class sizes are a comfortable ten children, in keeping with Jessie’s philosophy “We wanted this to be a home away from home…to keep it small, so we didn’t lose touch with families. We want to have those relationships with the children and parents.” The Holtes and the center’s staff also enjoy “being able to get to know the children and watch them grow… to touch their lives…it’s fun.” Along with a certified teacher possessing an early childhood degree from a state university designing lesson plans and programming for two years olds, three year olds, and children

in the preschool room, to ensure the meeting of all of the state education standards and benchmarks, the center also employs several staff all of whom have either an early childhood degree or experience. “Our staff has a very large interest in working with children…and a love for children in general.” All staff have undergone screenings, including full background checks, and are CPR and first aid certified. The center also offers parents an additional feeling of security with its doors remaining locked during operating hours, and swipe card access. First Adventure Learning Center will be holding an open house soon (watch their website for dates and times) that will also feature their summer program for children…and their brand new outdoor playground, complete with a Rainbow Playset. With summer fast approaching, parents working or living in this part of town seeking nurturing and educational childcare will want to check out this new adventure.

Finding a dentist is kind of like dating.

Which means that chemistry is important. You’ll know a lot about your dentist on the first visit. A good dentist will take the time to get to know you, to ask the right questions, and probably the most important, to LISTEN. Do you like to be “talked through” every step of every procedure, or would you rather put on your ipod and pretend you’re in the Bahamas? Either way, your dentist should ask about your priorities, fears (if you have them), history and oral health goals. A good dentist is willing to take the time needed to know you better.

StarMark Cabinetry Steps in

to Replace Reduced City Funds — and asks others to do the same.


he YMCA Middle School After School Program lost $24,000 when the City of Sioux Falls initiated spending cuts, StarMark Cabinetry will replace the money with its own and encourage others to match. “Each month, we are going to give the YMCA Middle School After School Program $1000, and we challenge another company or an individual to match our donation and give $1000,” said John Swedeen, president of StarMark Cabinetry. StarMark Cabinetry’s plan to donate $1000 and raise $1000 each month for twelve months will replace the $24,000 in reduced funding by the City of Sioux Falls. “We will continue this challenge until the city is able to restore full funding, or we raise $24,000, whichever comes first,” said Swedeen. The cost to mentor and bus home one middle school student during the after school hours is $810 annually. “A $24,000 reduction in funding will affect 29 students. Research shows that the hours between 3:30 and 6 p.m. on weekdays are the highest level of incidence for crime, drug, sexual and alcohol related

activities for middle school students. “Which 29 kids do we want to put at risk? None. We want all the kids to have a safe haven,” said Ashley Dean, director of the YMCA Middle School After School Program. To match StarMark Cabinetry’s challenge, call Beth at 605-838-7380. Each month, starting in April, StarMark Cabinetry will announce who answered the challenge.

Parents with a child already diagnosed can get questions answered, and learn more about the new InHome Behavior Therapy program, which provides a Children’s Care behavior therapist to work with the child and family in their home to improve behavior and skills. Children’s Care serves more children in the area with autism than any other provider, and uses the latest in evidence-based treatment approaches. The staff includes the region’s largest number of certified behavior analysts, as well as psychologists, teachers, nurses, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physical therapists, and an audiologist.

ccording to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, one in 110 American children now has an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It’s an alarming statistic,a and many new parents anxiously watch for signs and symptoms that their child might be affected. Other parents don’t want to know, and ignore red flags that might signal a problem. Early intervention can make a significant difference in helping to overcome the affects of an ASD, however, so knowing the facts is in the best interest of all parents.

homes around Sioux Falls and we just couldn’t find any charm or craftsmanship in any of the newer homes,” said Kirby. “We just decided that we would stay in this house and remodel it in a way that would fit both of our tastes.” Built in 1951, the 2,300-square-foot home sits on one of the few double lots in the McKennan Park area. Taking a majority of the home down to the studs, Lisa and Kirby stayed true to the original layout, with Kirby starting the overall transformation of the house

in 2001, six-months before their marriage. One room has been remodeled each year until the final renovation, the backyard, was completed last summer. What has transpired over a 9-year period has been a complex procedure intended to transform a dreary, Craftsman-style space into a modern and spacious home with rich textiles. The home now fits both their taste and their lifestyle, and is anything but cookie cutter. It has an abundance of thoughtful and customized design, with quirky details.

Before “The house is very eclectic. We’ve been able to mix old design with new. There are several antiques; a century-old gramophone player and rolling pin collection alongside newer, plush furniture and abstract artwork. The space is open but feels very comfortable. When I walk into a room, particularly the living room, I feel like the room is holding me.” First, they decided to eliminate the wall that divided the dining room and kitchen to create an open living and dining space that

focused on functionality and entertaining. The room boasts modern appliances with a touch of traditional appeal. Light cabinets blend with a darker wood floor, and an island with a black granite countertop stands next to a rustic-looking walnut dining room table. The kitchen serves as the perfect introduction to the rest of the home. “Before the remodeling, the rooms were very small and the house felt extremely choppy,“ said Lisa. “Now, when I’m in the

Leading into the bathroom, the great room features a large wall of slate tile adjacent from an oversized copper bathtub, a black granite countertop, custom-made sinks, and a giant walk-in shower. It serves as a relaxing oasis for the couple and an escape from the routine of daily life. “I designed the bathroom around my inability to do certain things,” said Kirby. “I kept things in certain sizes, so I wouldn’t

The large, elongated and open space is broken up into a room with various purposes. The basement features an office for Lisa, a showcase of autographed Fender and Gibson guitars that Kirby has collected over the years, an art studio where Kirby produces colorful pieces of art that are later displayed in the home or given to work clients, a workout area, and a photo tree filled with snapshots of the Schultz’s with a laundry-list of celebrities they’ve met while doing charity or work events. The fourth and final move was to transform the backyard from a small back porch and vast grassy area to a large space that exudes both fun and comfort, and is accessorized with three fireplaces, a waterfall, and a pagoda.

The décor is punctuated with wicker furniture, funky dangling lights, and a slate coffee table. “We wanted to extend the home outside,” said Lisa. “For entertaining, we wanted to make sure we utilized the double lot. We brought the electricity out there, added a few fire pits and a beautiful sitting area underneath a pagoda. ” Aside from the larger renovations, the couple re-painted the living room and master bedroom with warm earth tones and added new carpet, and also converted half of the back porch into a massive walkin closet that sits off of their master bedroom.

“Kirby always noticed how I was digging in my closets and was unable to see very clearly or find what I was looking for,” said Lisa. “They were very long and narrow and the construction made it often difficult to find things. The new walk-in closet allows us to have a his and her sides, and be very organized.” With the Schultz’s now putting the final touches on the house, their home represents a journey of eight years since the Schultz’s first moved into the property. When a modernist gets hold of a near halfcentury-old house, there’s no telling how it will turn out. However, Kirby’s layering of practical industrialism and personal details is one approach to embracing the present without obliterating the past. He’s successfully added modern amenities while maintaining a sincere respect for the original home.

y wife is from Sioux Falls, SD, and I am from Boston, MA. When I first met her in Medford, MA (while she was attending nursing school) I remember saying, “Where’s that?” when she told me she was from South Dakota. You see, when you grow up on the east coast, you know the states of New England, some other surrounding states, California, Texas, and Florida. Everything else in the middle is kind of, you know, foggy. Well, after my future wife set me straight about the location of South Dakota, I became enchanted with this mysterious region. So here I am, eleven years later, living in South Dakota, where we have great faces, great places, and great wines? The following is an article that was shared with me about an awardwinning winery, right here in our great state of South Dakota. Enjoy! South Dakota has received another feather in its cap, due to Prairie Berry Winery’s Frontenac

Great Faces, Great Places, Great Wines? wine which received a Platinum Award at a new competition in San Diego, California, recently. Even the person running the competition was surprised at the outstanding results for a relatively unknown wine state. At the Winemaker Challenge inaugural competition, a group of 18 notable winemakers came together to evaluate nearly 800 wines from around the world. It was the first international wine competition of its kind, where judges collaborated as members of three-person teams to scrutinize and debate each wine before votes were tallied and medals awarded. Syndicated wine writer and competition organizer, Robert Whitley, blogged an entry entitled, “Platinum and Gold Nuggets” for www.winereviewonline.com, covering that no matter how much he’s learned, there’s still a lot more to discover. “Take Prairie Berry, for example. It’s a winery in South Dakota. Uh huh, South Dakota. On the wine map, it might as well be Siberia. So imagine my surprise when we rolled out the wines nominated for best of show in their class and Prairie Berry is among them. “Out of 796 wines entered, 39 were nominated for best of show. That’s a platinum honor at the Winemaker Challenge. That’s Prairie Berry. The wine was a 2008 Frontenac from the

Lewis & Clark Vineyard, of all places. It will set you back $21.50 at full retail. And it was delicious; a clean, well balanced dessert wine deserving of its seat at the table. Didn’t win (a 2008 Inniskillin Riesling Icewine from the Niagara Peninsula, $80 per 375ml took the category) but it was certainly in the game.” Frontenac wine is made from South Dakota grown grapes of the same name. Greg Stach of Lewis & Clark Vineyard near Yankton is Prairie Berry’s grape grower and works closely with winemaker, Sandi Vojta, to produce the type of harvest that will yield such a high quality wine. In addition to the award for Frontenac, Prairie Berry received a silver medal each for their dry red, Phat Hogg Red, and their semi-dry blush wine, Pink Slip. The family behind Prairie Berry Winery, located just outside of Hill City, SD, has been crafting wines from South Dakota fruit since 1876. They have received 413 awards for 43 different wines since they first started entering competitions in 2001. Prairie Berry’s Tasting Room is open to the public daily, year-round. Carpe Vino!

I have savored the juicy burgers and salty chislic in the dark and smoky bars; I’ve ferreted out the hidden eateries and discovered their edible treasures. I’m the first in line when new restaurants open and mourn when one is lost. I have sampled the treats at Schmeckfest, and toured the small-town steakhouses and diners throughout the region. Simply put, I thought I knew all the best food the Sioux Empire had to offer. I was wrong. That is, until I discovered Gourmet Guys three years ago. Gourmet Guys is a benefit for the Center For Active Generations. I’d heard of the event, but I thought that any fundraising dinner for a place that primarily serves an older Midwestern audience would be rubber chicken and dry potatoes. I thought “bland, blander, blandest.” Boy, was I wrong. Let me give you a little background. Gourmet Guys is a fundraiser for the Center For Active Generations, which if you think is just for the Geritol crowd like I did, you are misinformed. True, most of their clientele are in their golden years, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t full of life. And one Sunday night in April, this place is filled with young and young at heart, and everyone brings a hearty appetite.


The idea behind the Gourmet Guys is to get 40 or so of Sioux Falls’ best home cooks — men only please — serving their best dishes; all in one place at one time. The rules are simple. The cooks must be men and they can’t be professional chefs. The guys each bring 700 “tasting” sizes portions of their creation and serve them to the guests. I should also mention that beer, wine and soft drinks are provided free to wash it all down. As I said, the event is a fundraiser for the Center, but it’s really the guests who benefit. Imagine a forty-course tasting menu; you can sample more than ten appetizers, a dozen entrees, a half dozen side dishes and then go back for a bunch of desserts. If you like sweet and your hubby likes spicy, you’ll both find morsels to your liking. I can’t think of a better date night and it goes to help a great cause. Who are the “Guys”? You might me surprised. Sheriff Mike Milstead has been a Gourmet Guy since the beginning. Along side him you’ll find businessmen, TV and radio personalities and a fifteen year old budding chef. You’ll even find an old advertising guy or two; this will be my third year as a Gourmet Guy. And if you’re looking for a laugh, the Cartwright Brothers will be back again this year and they always bring something spicy! As you know, men are always competitive, this event is no

Dinner exception. Organizer Shelley Hanisch always brings a group of distinguished judges and medals are awarded in four categories: appetizers, side dishes, main dishes and desserts. If you’ve ever dreamed of being a food critic, this is your chance; guests get to vote for a People’s Choice Award. OK, I can’t be humble any more; I have taken home the top prize for appetizers for the last two years. This year, I’ll be making a sushi style roll with an Italian twist. I’m calling it Makizushi Italiano. I was tempted to give you my recipe, but I don’t want to jinx it or give my competition a sneak peak. But here’s my promise, I will hand out the recipe at the event, so if you come, I’ll give it to you in person. Gourmet Guys is held at the Center For Active Generations on April 18 from 5 to 7 PM. The Center is located at 2300 West 46th Street. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door (if there are any left). Trust me, you won’t find this much good food anywhere else in town; certainly not at this price. Do yourself a favor, eat something good today.

ater is often taken for granted. We turn on the tap to brush our teeth, rinse the dishes, boil pasta, fill a glass. Water covers 80% of the earth’s surface. Water makes up 66% of the human body. The Environmental Protection Agency (epa.gov) provides these statistics, as well as one more: Each American uses 10,000 gallons of water per day. Per day. In honor of the 40th Earth Day, April 22, let’s reflect on this precious resource that keeps our lives flowing. From local waters to oceans far away, H2O affects our health – and the earth’s health. While our planet looks mostly blue from space, only about 3% of that water is fresh, and 1% is suitable for drinking. As water becomes scarce, polluted, or more expensive in many regions, Sioux Falls is working to become a smart player in the water game. In 2009, the EPA recognized the City of Sioux Falls and the Minnehaha Community Water Corporation for significant investments in clean drinking water and water quality respectively. This honor for commitment to the congressional Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act can make us

hopeful that the quality and health of our local water is a priority. Be aware of the local and national state of water. The New York Times series titled “Toxic Waters” (nytimes.com/toxicwaters) focuses on national water pollution; a report that found 79 contaminants in Sioux Falls water. This is just a reminder that we need to be aware what we are ingesting, bathing in, and cleaning with. While cities, municipalities and even the country take action to keep water clean, we have a responsibility too. Be aware of the chemicals you wash down the drain. Avoid bleach and antibacterial sprays that can produce other chemicals when mixed with chlorinated water. Use detergents that are phosphate-free, which may reduce algae bloom in rivers and lakes. After using Seventh Generation dishwashing detergent, with a box boasting “non-toxic, no chlorine, no phosphates,” my dishes are sparkling. Do your research to keep your water and your home safe and clean. Next: Use less H2O. You’ve heard it, now just do it – turn

off the faucet while brushing your teeth, fully load the dishwasher before running, and take a shower rather than a bath. Take a shorter shower; every 1 or 2 minutes you drop, can save 150 gallons per month – and save your water bill (wateruseitwisely.com). Look for products labeled by the EPA’s WaterSense Program as efficient when shopping for showerheads, faucets, etc. Check out h2ouse.net for more ways to save water all over the house. Knowledge and conservation are a good start, but reducing waste keeps waters clean. Plastic bottles, paper cups, oil left on parking lots, fertilizer on grass – this garbage and pollutants can all wash into storm drains or blow into rivers and even flow to the ocean via the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. An example of how waterways are being choked by trash is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a floating trash heap estimated to be twice the size of Texas. Check out video footage on YouTube showing this sad example of human pollution hurting the ecosystem. This oceanic garbage dump is made up of mostly plastic. We can do something to prevent added plastic in our oceans. The easiest thing is to set down the plastic water bottle (preferably in a recycling bin since only 6.8 percent of plastics generated in 2008 were recycled according to the EPA). Invest in a filter for your faucet or a pitcher filter you can store in the fridge. For on-the-go, grab a reusable bottle. Plastic in our world today will never go away. It can be reused or recycled, but it will never breakdown – so next time say no to the plastic fork, bag, etc. Even though the ocean is far away and we might only see it on vacations or in pictures, it can affect our health, air, and even food. Plastics and other toxins are ingested by fish that may one day end up on your dinner plate. When planning your meal or looking over the menu, select fish that are low in toxins and are caught or farmed safely. Moneraybay.org offers a “Seafood Watch Pocket Guide” for all regions. Make healthy dinner plans for your family and the planet. Our world and our bodies are fueled by water. We owe it to ourselves and to future generations to keep it safe through knowledge, water conservation, and our choices when it comes to trash and dinner plans. Hopefully you won’t take it for granted the next time you brush your teeth. Our rivers, lakes and oceans flow across the land, keeping us moving forward. Let’s try to make tomorrow a little greener, or bluer if you will. Happy Earth Day 2010.

Plants Resurrecting – Time to Divide BY MARY ELLEN CONNELLY


s the great snow banks shrink, we are out there among yet-invisible plants, our heads tilted toward soil like hungry robins. We’re on the prowl

for scant leaves beginning to squeeze through, a sign from below of perennial plants resurrecting. They are the time bombs of the plant world, armed to the

hilt with last season’s energy stores. As vestiges of green begin to probe through soil, the perfect opportunity for “division” has arrived. The air is cool;

soil moisture is adequate; baby shoots suffer less breakage and crushing when uprooted; transpiration from leaves is minimal with smaller leaf surface area; and an entire growing season lies ahead for plants to recover. After a few weeks, they won’t care that they’ve been messed with. Even in the best-planned garden, asters will eventually overgrow plodding plants like true lilies or balloon flowers, and aggressive bee balm roots will invade the space you’ve allowed for veronica. Popular daylilies too often grow two feet apart when they should have been spaced at three or four. You might need to rejuvenate an old, overgrown planting that could be dying out in the center. Or perhaps you need to feed your greed gene and get some new plants for your own garden or to share with others. It’s never a good idea to divide a dry plant. Disturbing the root system interrupts a plant’s ability to feed and hydrate itself. To reduce transplant

trauma, soak specimens thoroughly a couple of days before you dig. Making divisions is simple. Dig up and expose the entire root ball with confidence. You aren’t going to hurt it. Observe different types of roots. Massage and tease them into tens or hundreds of little new plants. Get up to the eyebrows in soil and cluck away like mother hens (or crow like roosters) over these miraculous resilient plants. Leave large enough portions to ensure successful flowering in the current year, at least two or several eyes or shoots. 1. Slice, chop, or tease apart the tangled, fibrous roots of catmint, aster, geranium, and meadow sage. Use knife, pruners, or spade. 2. Use the double, garden-fork, pry apart method for an overgrown clump of golden daylily rhizomes. Insert two forks, back-to-back, and then pull them in opposite directions. 3. Separate the firm, oval corms or bulbs

of gayfeather or lilies by hand. (Lilies are best divided in autumn.) 4. Cut apart tough, dense peony roots with a sharp knife or spade. (Peonies are best divided in autumn.) Younger roots that grow at the edges of the clump have the most vigor, and they’ll recover quicker and produce the strongest new plants. Discard woody old centers and mushy, rotted roots. Plant the new roots at the same depth of the mother-plant roots. Keep soil adequately moist for several weeks while old roots tuck in and new ones form. Do not over water. (Over watering is one of the most common causes of plant death.) Perennial plants vary widely in their growth habits and rates of increase.

Divide in Early Spring (Also divide these in early fall. With extra care, some people divide them all season.)

Crouching Cooper Sleeping Dragon BY TED HEEREN



ome just aren’t into the idea of malls in general, because malls in general represent the death of main street, and all that is good and wholesome in the world, in general. These people speed by the Western Mall on their way to Target. They love Target. A bumper sticker on their back window informs tailgaters that friends don’t let friends drink Starbucks coffee. Friendship is very important to these people. They do a lot of shopping at Best Buy. They eat at HuHot. Some of them might even get their hair cut at the Man Salon, but they’d never admit to patronizing the Western Mall, because it’s a mall, and malls are evil, generally. Then there’s the other group of Western Mall snobs that would never stop in Chicago on their way to New York, or in this case the Empire Mall. The pony tail guys that spray stuff on you as you walk by Victoria’s Secret, I don’t know them personally, but I bet they’d fall into this category. If there is one thing that this group knows it’s malls, and by their book, there’s only one show in town, the Empire. I’m not here to tell you where to shop and I don’t really care where you get your coffee. But I do care about the Western Mall, because whether you like it or not, it is a sleeping dragon at the very heart of Sioux Falls, and to understand its complex corridors of commerce is to understand yourself. So let us begin our travels – to the heart of the heart of the Midwest. The Western Mall opened in 1968. Its roster of stores included Bostwick’s and Coast To Coast, and believe it or not, back then the

Western Mall was actually west of some stuff. Today it’s a much different place, but then again, it’s kind of the same. Bostwick’s, the home of some of the finest poly blend slacks in town, is long gone. But the mojo remains. In fact, as I sit on a wooden bench just outside Miracle Ear, I’d go so far as to say that the Western Mall is enjoying a modern day renaissance. Mall walkers trot past me as if they’re part of a centennial parade in Montrose, SD. I keep waiting for one of them to throw me a pack of Smarties, or a Chinese finger trap from the Electric Rainbow arcade just down the hall. The floors are carpeted; unlike the Empire’s Storm Trooper white sheen, and amidst the commotion of ski-ball rollers and the pitter-patters of tennis shoes, I can faintly hear the heroic call of an enlightened warrior. At first I think it’s a sign of some sort, that the sleeping dragon has awoken, the beast, the mall itself has risen so that I can interview it or something. Then I catch the reflection of a taekwondo guy nunchucking some stuff over at Larry Hoovers Black Belt Academy. I head over there to see if he’ll talk to me. Queen City residents might look down their noses at the Western Mall, but for the out of towner it’s the stuff that dreams are made of. It has it all; electronics, sporting gear, hunting stuff, futons, couches, recliners, used stuff, cheap movies, skiball, zippers, fabric, denim, rhinestone, cheeseburgers, beer, popcorn, law offices, massage chairs, and let’s not forget about the absolute best trinket vending machine in the region. The best

part, if you like the idea of avoiding crowds and heavy traffic, the Western Mall is conveniently located on Western Avenue, a far cry from the smog fueled jams of Louise. 3rd degree black belt Jimmy Cooper of Humboldt, S.D. has been practicing the art of taekwondo for 6 years at Hoover’s academy. I ask him about a spinning kick I saw him rehearsing out on the mat and he tells me that he’s practiced that particular spin reverse kick more than 1,000 times. “It’s good cardio vascular” he says. Though when I look at

it I see something more along the lines of a groin pull. Cooper crouches near me on the mat. He’s holding a pair of knives. He tells me that through self-control and discipline you really can teach an old dog some new tricks. At that moment I realized that something magical had happened. Cooper wasn’t talking about martial arts any more, or spin reverse kicks; he was talking about the Western Mall, the beast itself, a sleeping dragon in the heart of Sioux Falls. Then again I might have been reading into it. That’s all for now, next stop: Estelline, SD.

Planning Your Next


South Dakota Just Got a Whole Lot Easier BY JESSICA GUNDERSON


f you are thinking of taking a vacation somewhere a little closer to home, there is a fabulous website available that will guide you through your planning process. The South Dakota Office of Tourism has created an extremely beneficial tool called “My Trip Planner” through www.travelsd.com, allowing visitors to search for their desired destinations and attractions, and add them to their trip planner according to which day they plan to visit any of the four distinct regions. In addition to “My Trip Planner”, the website offers some other beneficial materials, such as a monthly e-newsletter called “South Dakota Travelsmart” that highlights destinations, activities, upcoming events and more, as well as other free publications that will

assist you in planning your South Dakota vacation. “We want people to feel at home in our state and we go out of our way to welcome visitors as they explore our world-class attractions and phenomenal outdoor opportunities,” says the South Dakota Office of Tourism on the website, www.travelsd.com. They say they are here to serve the people of South Dakota and all who come to meet our Great Faces and explore our Great Places. Along with the numerous travel planning guides, www.travelsd. com offers interesting facts about South Dakota, free desktop wallpaper and screen savers featuring breathtaking South Dakota scenery, and even live webcam views of activities happening at

Adventure Mount Rushmore National Memorial, the Corn Palace, the State Capital, and along Deadwood’s Historic Main Street. “Our Mission is to market South Dakota and guide the development of the visitor industry resulting in increased visitor expenditures and employment,” states the South Dakota Office of Tourism. South Dakota’s landscapes are some of the most diverse and beautiful sights in the nation, including the endless rolling prairies, sparkling bodies of water, and towering peaks and pines. If you are interested in a particular region or city, attraction or activity, the www.travelsd.com allows you to search until you have

gathered enough information to be 100 percent comfortable with the success of your South Dakota vacation. There are four distinct regions in South Dakota. The Southeast Region has landmarks telling a story and every event captures the spirit of the people. The Northeast Region includes fresh glacial lakes and prairies. The Central Region includes South Dakota’s Great Lakes, providing over 440 miles of waterway for boating, fishing, swimming, and sailing on the Missouri River and Reservoirs. Last, but not least, the Western Region includes the popular Black Hills, Badlands, and Lakes, and has stunning scenery with one of the largest concentrations of National Parks, monuments, memorials, and

caves in the Midwest. The Western Region of South Dakota is a popular place for people to spend their vacation time. Named “Paha Sapa” by the Native Americans, the Black Hills are rich with history, adventure, and gorgeous scenery. They truly capture the spirit of America. Using “My Trip Planner” on www.travelsd.com, some popular attractions can be added, then dragged and dropped according to which day you would like to visit them. For example, on day one you may choose to visit the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in Keystone, SD. The Presidential Trail provides a half-mile pathway offering amazing views of the huge historical sight. On another day, you may choose to visit the Black Hills Caves, with a vast variety of rare formations. The Jewel Cave National Monument is the second longest cave in the world with approximately 150 miles of surveyed passages. Crystals resembling glittering jewels are what give the cave its name. Wind Cave National Park has more than 110 miles of mapped passages, and is the fourth longest cave in the world. With the world’s largest display of a rare formation called boxwork, an unusual composition of thin calcite fins resembling honeycombs. The park’s mixed-grass prairie and ponderosa pine forest is one of the few remaining and is home to native wildlife such as bison, elk, pronghorn, mule deer, coyotes and prairie dogs. On day three, you may choose to visit the Black Hills National Forest. Granite peaks such as Harney Peak, the highest point in the United States east of the Rockies at 7,242 feet above sea level;

make a hike up to the top an adventure never to be forgotten. Spruce trees cover the slopes, making the hills appear black from a distance. The Black Hills National Forest stretches for 1.2 million acres, offering outdoor adventures amidst breathtaking scenery. The Visitor Center at Pactola Reservoir includes exhibits on the Black Hills natural history and a self-guiding nature trail. On day four, the Crazy Horse Memorial could be your next destination. Sculpting of this historical memorial began in 1939 after sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski received a letter from Chief Henry Standing Bear, stating: “My fellow chiefs and I would like the white man to know the red man has great heroes, too.” Ziolkowski’s family continues the dream fifty-five years later, and work and progress on the world’s largest mountain sculpture will go on until Crazy Horse stands 641 feet long and 563 feet high. Along with the many attractions for your days on vacation in South Dakota, there are many places for lodging to choose from. The South Dakota Office of Tourism’s website, www.travelsd.com, shows 536 entries of places for lodging in the Western Region alone. This includes a variety of unique lodging options from rustic campsites and Bed and Breakfasts to cozy cabins and full-service resorts and hotels with all the amenities. There is also a list of outdoor and indoor opportunities to find your perfect South Dakota adventure.

Your Symptoms Are Important Clues in Solving Medical Riddles BY DONNA FARRIS For Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center


hat nagging symptom that’s been bothering you... You’d like to think it’s nothing, yet fear it could be something. So you wonder, “should I call a doctor, or wait and see?” If a symptom is new and unusual for you, or something that’s been going on for longer than you think it should, it’s probably a good idea to make an appointment. “You’re never wrong for coming in to get something checked out,” said Dr. Heidi Feistner, family practitioner with Avera McGreevy Clinic West in Sioux Falls. “It’s better to come in and be told ‘it’s nothing’ than to let something go on too long and end up with a worsening condition

that could land you in the emergency room or hospital,” Dr. Feistner said. As a patient, the symptoms you describe are the first and very important clues that help your doctor decide what tests to order, or not to order, to make a diagnosis. Dr. Feistner said there’s no such thing as too much information when it comes to describing symptoms. The best scenario is to journal about your symptoms: when they happen, how long they last, if it’s at a certain time of the day or after eating, the severity of the symptoms, and if you’ve tried any over-the-counter remedies. “It’s easy to forget these details when you’re in the doctor’s office,” Dr. Feistner said.

If you’re experiencing pain, try to describe whether it’s sharp, stabbing, throbbing or aching pain. Describe where in the body you feel the pain, and be sure to include information about any other symptoms that occur with pain. Don’t let embarrassment keep you from sharing important details. “As physicians, we’ve heard everything,” Dr. Feistner said. If you’re not comfortable talking about something, write it down or ask someone close to you to come to your appointment with you. Some symptoms call for emergency or urgent care, even if it’s after clinic hours. For example, pain or discomfort in the chest or upper body with shortness of breath, lightheadedness, nausea or fainting could signal a heart attack. Stroke symptoms include sudden weakness, numbness, confusion, or trouble seeing or walking, especially involving one side of the body. “The worst headache you’ve ever experienced” could be a sign of an emergency condition like stroke or aneurysm. Any injury that causes severe pain or bleeding requires immediate attention. And if you’re sick, go in immediately if you experience high fever, difficulty breathing or prolonged vomiting that could lead to dehydration. There are symptoms that can wait until morning, but should be checked out as soon as possible, for example, if you feel a lump in your breast, have irregular vaginal bleeding or have a change in bowel habits – “anything that’s out of the ordinary for you,” Dr.

Feistner said. Even serious conditions can have vague symptoms. A new pain that lasts longer than three days should be evaluated by a physician, or if it’s severe enough to keep you from going to work or doing your normal daily activities. “Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t right,” Dr. Feistner said. It’s not unusual for patients to wait and talk to their doctor about symptoms at their annual check-up. That works if there’s only one or two issues to bring up, but the time scheduled is primarily intended for preventative health. If there’s not time to adequately address symptoms, your doctor might recommend you schedule another appointment. Also, waiting for your annual appointment may mean that you wait too long to address a serious health concern. “Googling” your symptoms may or may not be helpful. Dr. Feistner said it’s best to go to a reliable medical website. A random search might lead to misinformation, causing the reader to either become too worried about a symptom, or pass off a serious symptom as nothing. In any case, Internet information is no substitute for discussing symptoms with your doctor, who understands your medical history, Dr. Feistner added. Avera McKennan’s Ask-A-Nurse service is available 24/7 for medical questions by calling 1-877-AT-AVERA. Also, you can find reliable health information on thousands of health topics by clicking on “health library” at www.AveraMcKennan.org.

Decorate the house and yard or the area where you will be holding the event with lots of pastel colors. Balloons, streamers, paper cutouts of rabbits, ducks, eggs, carrots, and table decorations to top it off. Have your children help you make some Easter refreshments to serve including punch, sandwiches, baby carrots, and Easter cookies or cupcakes. If you are going to have a lot of kids at the party and the egg hunt, make sure to ask other adults to supervise designated areas of the hunting site. Purchase some blank paper bags and set up a table with colored markers and stickers. When the children arrive, tell them they can decorate a bag however they like for the Easter egg

hunt. Fill plastic eggs with small prizes such as jellybeans, coins, temporary tattoos, stickers, key chains, beads, and candy. If the children are older, fill the eggs with more age appropriate things such as money. It would probably be best to estimate about a dozen eggs per guest. If you don’t want to risk the chance some children might get too competitive, leave the eggs empty and have them trade their eggs in for a bag of goodies at the end of the hunt. Make sure to explain the rules to everyone, and let the hunt begin with the blow of a whistle or some other form of announcement. Don’t be surprised by how quickly it ends. Perhaps a plan for a couple more simple crafts would be a good backup for a hunt that ends sooner than you expect. Creating bunny masks to wear during the party would be a great way to get the kids involved and having fun. To create a mask, cut a paper plate in half. To make the ears, cut half-moon shapes from pink construction paper and trim them so they are smaller than the plate half. Glue each half-moon in the center of a plate half. Your child could also choose to color the insides of the ears pink. Position the ears on another plate and staple, glue, or tape in place. Cut out openings for the eyes and trim around the mouth to shape cheeks. Draw on a nose and some whiskers. Punch holes on the sides near the child’s ears and secure some

elastic so the mask fits on your child’s head. Another fun activity would be to have an Easter-themed pinata full of candy at the end of the hunt. Have the children take turns hitting it with a plastic bat while blindfolded. The one who finally bursts it open wins something special. Since children tend to experience things differently as they grow, it might be a good idea to set up the egg hunt area according to age groups. Mark the boundaries clearly or by color coding the eggs. For example, the older kids only find pink and orange eggs, and the younger kids get blue and yellow. Also, go easier on the younger children, leaving eggs low and in open places. On the other hand, make the game more challenging for the older kids by concealing eggs in tougher spots such as bushes, gutters, and corners. You could also tell the children to keep hunting for eggs until they have found a certain amount. This way, everybody will be happy and nobody will feel bad if they only found two eggs and their friend found eight. You may also want to pair up older kids with younger kids to help them hunt for eggs. For safety, establish borders when planning an outdoor hunt. For example, tell the children to stay between the house and the willow tree, or to go no further than

the driveway. If the weather is bad, an indoor Easter egg hunt can be just as fun. A night-time hunt is another way to challenge the older kids or adults, giving everyone a flashlight to look for their eggs. Also, glow in the dark paint could be used for an exciting egg hunt either outside or inside when it is dark. And as always, be prepared for things that could go wrong. Have a first-aid kit handy and watch the smaller children closely to be sure they don’t choke on small toys or jellybeans. Make sure you don’t put any choking hazards in the eggs if the children are very young. Also, make sure the eggs are too big to fit in their mouths. If you are using real eggs, make a note of how many eggs you are hiding, because the smell of a rotten egg is not something anyone desires — especially if you forget about one on an indoor egg hunt. Variations of the egg hunt could be to put a clue inside each plastic egg instead of a prize. This works best with older kids. Each egg should lead them to another plastic egg and so on, until finally leading them to their basket of goodies. When they get older, have them make up clues for each other. Easter time means egg hunt time, so let the hunt begin.

New Baby & Me

Beginning Life With a New Baby in Your Family BY JAN HOEFER, RN, LCCE, FACCE, ICPFE Sanford Childbirth Resource Center


eing a new mom is one of the toughest and most rewarding roles in life. Whether you are having your first child, or your third, adjusting to life with your new infant can be both exciting and exhausting all at once. Here are some tips and tools to help during the first weeks at home with your new baby. Bonding with your baby Some mothers say they immediately fall in love with their newborns; however for others, this does not happen as quickly. Remember it is OK for you to take time to get to know your baby. Spending time simply holding your new infant will help the two of you begin your relationship. Everyone bonds with their baby at their own pace, over time; you will fall in love with your baby. Learning how to understand what the baby is trying to “say” Babies have their own language – and that language is not always expressed through crying. Each infant has its own personality, some are verbal and outgoing others are quiet and like to be alone with you. Take time to experience your baby and his or her unique personality. It won’t take long before you get used to the prompts your baby gives you when he or she needs something. For instance, many babies will start suckling or licking their hands when they are hungry. Accomplishing household tasks New moms are often amazed at how exhausted they are after bringing a new baby home. Many think they will have time to do laundry or pick up the house when the baby is sleeping; however new moms can be so worn out that these things get overlooked. Don’t let this make you feel guilty. Post-partum is a time to take good care of yourself, as well as your new baby. When your baby sleeps – you should sleep, too. Here is a great rule of thumb for new moms: stay in your pajamas until you’ve had enough sleep for the day. Whether you’re rested by 9 a.m. or need to get some extra sleep when your baby naps later in the morning — give yourself permission to stay in your pajamas until you’ve had enough rest for the day.

It is OK for tasks and chores around the house to be put on a lower priority while you are caring for your newborn. Don’t feel guilty about needing time to rest or recharge. And, remember to ask for help. If your partner, a friend or family members offer to bring you a meal, help with a chore or run an errand — take them up on the offer. Not only is it good for you, it will also let them feel that they are helping you and your new baby. Knowing when your baby is sick This is probably the most worrisome of all issues for new parents. Trust your instincts and call your healthcare provider if you notice a significant change in your baby’s behavior or appearance. Call your healthcare provider if your baby experiences any of the following: 1. Temperature greater than 100-degrees (taken under baby’s arm) 2. Poor appetite and/or poor sucking 3. Less than six wet diapers in 24 hours 4. Vomiting after two to three consecutive feedings and especially if it is forceful 5. Frequent explosive and runny bowel movements 6. Extreme fussiness or crying despite efforts to soothe baby 7. Significant changes in your baby’s sleep pattern 8. Very rapid breathing or gasps for breath 9. Experiences any accident, head injury or burn 10. Receives any wound resulting in a loss of blood or bruising 11. Swallows any toxic substance or it touches baby’s skin or eyes 12. Any change in your baby’s normal color such as unusual paleness or yellowing of skin or whites of the eyes The best thing new moms can do is to ask for help: ask your girlfriends or family members who have been through similar experiences for their advice; ask your husband or partner to pitch in with extra chores around your house and check with your local healthcare facility to learn about any support groups or workshops for new moms. Most of all enjoy this special time with your new baby.

Judy Moody by Megan McDonald To start, Judy Moody doesn’t have high hopes for third grade. Her new desk won’t have an armadillo sticker with her name on it. Her new classroom will not have a porcupine named Roger. And with her luck, she’ll get stuck sitting in the first row, where Mr. Todd will notice every time she tries to pass a note to her best friend, Rocky. An aspiring doctor, Judy does have a little brother who comes in handy for practicing medicine, a cool new pet, and a huge Band-Aid collection. Judy also has an abundance of individuality and attitude, and when Mr. Todd assigns a very special class project, she really gets a chance to express herself! Megan McDonald’s spirited text and Peter Reynolds’s wry illustrations combine in a feisty, funny first chapter book for every kid who has ever felt a little out of sorts.

Flanimals Pop-Up by Ricky Gervais They’re grotesque. They’re absurd. They’re so ugly they’re cute - and they could only be spawned by the mind of award-winning comedian Ricky Gervais.

Mrs. Clean for Spring BY JENNIFER NOBLE


rganizing can be laborious – putting items away, assigning a place for new shopping finds, but de-cluttering is another, by which a detachment needs to happen in order to sell, donate or throw away what’s unnecessary. Sarah Gilchrist has given herself a leading role in the charge to clear out clutter and enlists the support of her family. The perks are gaining freedom to move about without stacks of paper and toys, as well as the extra funds after holding annual rummage sales. The necessary evil is mustering diligence to maintain the clarity. The family works together with a system of organization that results in both major and minor purchases being funded through rummage sales and allows others to benefit from their used items. What enemies keep clutter piling up? It’s best not to leave something for later, but instead to deal with it as the need arises. That “later� pile can grow infectiously and

important things could get missed. The worst is to stick everything in a clothes basket and plop it down on the desk. Suddenly five or six weeks later, there aren’t any baskets for laundry. As we’ve kept up on the paper moving through our household, there’s really little that needs to be saved and filed. This is where you can discern what’s important and file it appropriately. Do you struggle in detaching from anything? As I come across something that I find myself asking, “Why do I have this?” I add it to a collection of items that will be rummaged. Or if I get a replacement for an appliance, the old one goes. Last year I donated everything that didn’t get sold, and I’ve been surprised at how quickly things have piled up again. I do the same thing with my two kids, asking them, “keep or go?” with their things. They don’t worry as it’s sold, and in fact they’re glad, because whatever they earn is theirs to spend. Every once in awhile, I get a little resistance and hear things like “mom, don’t sell this!” The important memorabilia is kept in what’s called their “Life Box,” and it’s for favorite toys and sentimental things. Is there a cycle of when you de-clutter? The week before the Kingswood Rummages, our neighborhood holds our annual sale. It’s really beneficial for everyone to have a neighborhood sale. The hardest thing to move at rummages is winter clothes, as people are looking to summer when they shop in the spring. I’ve tried to clear out winter things later in August,

but it’s still early to be thinking about warmer clothing for most people. During winter holidays, I have the family sort to make room for new Christmas gifts. And one constant thing I seem to do is clear out magazines. I have noticed it’s easier to refer back to an idea online now, and I’ve also learned to work on one idea at a time, so that I don’t get overloaded with my wish lists and home improvement projects. A few things about Sarah Gilchrist: What’s your favorite movie? Empire of the Sun Where’s your favorite place? Lake Okoboji What’s your favorite seasonal food? In spring, poffertjes. They’re like mini pancakes with a butter rum sauce, topped with powdered sugar. We eat them at the Tulip Festival in Orange City. Who would you like to meet? Beth Moore What’s something surprising about you? My husband Jeff proposed to me on Sally Jesse Raphael on national television. What quality do you admire in others? The ability to follow through. Where do you want to travel? Europe What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be in the Olympics, but alas, I was not athletic. What’s your favorite book? Anne of Green Gables Who has been most influential in your life? My husband Jeff. In fact, as he’s shared some of his past endeavors like clowning or a new hobby with a co-worker, they’re known to say, “Jeff, I learn something new about you everyday.”

pring showers bring May flowers” at many homes, but at my house it can bring much more. With two dogs, and a cat it means that it is time to get ready for summer! After this long winter, weight loss and getting back in shape is at the top of the list for both pets and people. The problem is that we get a nice day and go for more exercise than the body is ready for. Remember to start slow, on soft surfaces and keep the amount of activity appropriate. It is also time to cut calories and treats down to start weight loss. Decrease the amount of food you feed slowly. I like to decrease 5-10 percent per week until I have decreased the intake by 30 percent. You may have to add in vegetables or fruits to keep them full. Don’t forget to also decrease the treats. Many pets’ “extra calories” come from the treats that make them so happy. If your pet is not losing weight you may want to have their thyroid function tested.

for Your Pets If their hair coats have become matted, too long or simply out of control, it is time for a spring haircut or total body shave. This will give them plenty of time to grow back a full body of hair by next fall. It also decreases the amount of shedding around the house. Warm weather also brings the return of insects, especially ticks and fleas. Once the temperatures continue to stay around 50-60 degrees the ticks will hatch and start to become active. Fleas also will return once it warms up. I prefer to use topical products on pets that go to the park, camping or spend a considerable amount of time outside. If your pet is mostly indoors, and not exposed to ticks, Sentinel is available as an oral product to prevent fleas in your house. Heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes and it is time to get your pet tested and started on medications. Mosquitoes feed in the early morning and late evening so any pet that goes outside

is susceptible and at risk. With all of the moisture this spring, there will be a lot of mosquitoes. Piper, our Golden Retriever, is now 70 lbs. l have learned that muddy paws on a large dog are more of a challenge than Millie the 10 lb. terrier. I recommend, trimming the hair on the feet shorter and keeping her nails short. You also need several old bath towels and a bit of patience. Working in the yard with pets is also an adventure. It is important that if you are working with power equipment that the pets are out of the area. They are very fast and can get caught in the machinery. We also need to keep them away from fertilizers, pesticides and bulbs. If you apply chemicals to the yard, make sure that it is watered in or rained on prior to allowing them on the grass. I still like to wipe their paws off before coming in to remove any residue. Let’s hope for more flowers than showers!

Sherman Centennial Plaza


Dedicated to Edwin A. Sherman “Father of the Sioux Falls Parks System” BY SOLVEIG HENDRICKSON



ith pioneer spirit, the 28-year-old Sherman arrived in Sioux Falls in June of 1873. He invested in real estate, milling, banking, an electric plant, and a railway company. E. A. Sherman was involved in the community as County Superintendent of Schools, Treasurer, and Auditor of Dakota Territory, Village Board of Trustees, Alderman, City Commissioner, and Chairman of both the Park and the Library Boards.

In 1910 Mr. Sherman donated 52-acres for the first portion of Sherman Park. Always a lover of nature, he envisioned a park system for Sioux Falls that would provide several well developed parks. He was instrumental as a member of the legislature in passing enabling legislation authorizing cities to acquire and operate a system of parks under the supervision of a Park Board. Parks, and the Sioux Falls Parks System, became his principal interest during the latter years of his life.

Death Mask Portrait Statue - Sherman Monument After E. A. Sherman died at his home on June 13, 1916, friends immediately summoned sculptor John K. Daniels of St. Paul, MN, to come to Sioux Falls. Daniels obtained a death mask of Sherman, which he then used to create a portrait statue (bust) of the revered Sioux Falls pioneer. At this time, the south entrance road into upper Sherman Park followed along the top of the bluff above the Big Sioux River to the complex of five Indian burial mounds. A Monument in memory of the beloved E. A. Sherman was chosen by a committee of local citizens. It consisted of his death mask bust placed on a large quartzite pedestal and a curved, two-sectioned quartzite bench. During summer months, park visitors often gathered there to enjoy an unparalleled view of the setting sun. Although in disrepair, the Sherman Monument stone bench still stands (2010). Years later the death mask bust was moved to lower Sherman Park near a Big Sioux River oxbow. During South Dakota’s Centennial in 1989, it was again relocated, this time to Sherman Centennial Plaza.
