Baan Dek Montessori

Independence to Learn. Education for Life. BY SANDIE WIESE PHOTOS BY CHANG PHOTOGRAPHY


arents now have another educational option for their children in Sioux Falls – The Baan Dek Montessori. The Baan Dek Montessori offers a unique educational experience, which recognizes that each child learns differently. The Montessori method of learning, developed by Italian physician Maria Montessori, concentrates on the individual needs of children through one-on-one interaction with a prepared environment. The Montessori approach to education encourages children to learn at their own pace. The children are given the freedom to choose from activities positioned throughout the classroom. As Maria Montessori famously said, “the most important period of life, is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the




period of birth to age six.” June and Bobby George opened The Baan Dek Montessori in September 2007, and The Baan Dek Montessori is now the first and only accredited Association Montessori International (AMI) school in the state of South Dakota. In addition to AMI accreditation, which includes an AMI consultant coming to Sioux Falls to ensure Montessori’s method is being followed, The Baan Dek Montessori has also recently earned state accreditation to teach kindergarten. The Baan Dek Montessori hopes to expand to offer both a toddler program (18-30 months) and an elementary program in the near future. The Georges opened The Baan Dek Montessori during the

one-hundred year anniversary of the first Montessori school, The Casa dei Bambini or Children’s House in Italian, opened by Maria Montessori in Rome. In keeping with the tradition of Maria Montessori’s original school, the Baan Dek also translates into Children’s House in Thai. Director June George, who is originally from Thailand, completed a Masters degree and earned an Association Montessori International diploma in England where she met her husband Bobby, who was also in graduate school. The Georges decided to return to Bobby’s hometown of Sioux Falls to open The Baan Dek Montessori after they saw an opportunity and a need to share the Montessori philosophy with children and

parents of Sioux Falls. The Baan Dek Montessori is committed to “preparing children for the real world, and imparting on them that they are capable of thinking for themselves, having courage in thought, believing in themselves, and that nothing is impossible for them.” In contrast to the traditional method of education, Montessori students are evaluated every single day on an individual basis, one on one, without having to follow a prescribed path of progress -- Montessori students measure their own success. As a result, the children develop their own self-confidence as they choose activities within the six hands-on learning areas of their classroom; practical life, sensorial, language, math, science,

and culture. Montessori students learn to be extremely selfmotivated, adaptable, compassionate, flexible, collaborative, and responsible. Additionally, the mixed age classroom, ages two and half years to six years old, encourages collaboration rather than competition. The older students share their knowledge and mentor the younger students, and the younger students benefit from learning from their peers. Montessori also encourages the development of creativity in children through real world experiences. The Baan Dek Montessori supports and encourages these endeavors by sponsoring an annual children’s film festival, displaying local artists’ work on the walls of the classroom, and hosting an international day for children and

families to celebrate their diversity. The Baan Dek Montessori is offering a summer school program featuring a number of unique and exciting opportunities that encourage children to discover new friendships and embrace new learning experiences in a safe, caring, and adventurous environment. Every two weeks will be an entirely different educational experience in the program, devoted to an entirely new topic: All About Gardening, All About America, All About Animals, All About Art, All About Cooking. The Baan Dek Montessori is also accepting applications for the Fall semester. Please visit their website for details on both of these opportunities.

Institute of Design & Technology of SD

Advancing Design Exploration and Creative Entrepreneurship for Area Students BY MARY MICHAELS | PHOTOS BY CHANG PHOTOGRAPHY

he popularity of shows such as Project Runway and HGTV’s Dream Home may have area students wondering if they have what it takes to be the next design star. Now, young men and women with interests in interior or fashion design looking at where to attend school in the Fall have an affordable option close to home - the Institute of Design & Technology of South Dakota. The school, located in downtown Sioux Falls, is an excellent alternative to a traditional four-year college. For almost 20 years, creative director Anita Kealey has been a design mentor and career presenter at many schools. She discovered that a creative and entrepreneurial element was missing in design career experiences for students. With an initial goal of helping provide support for summer educational programs, Kealey established the Creative Youth Learning Experience Fund at the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation. Because she understands that the training necessary to excel in high-demand design careers can be very expensive, Kealey later opened the Institute of Design & Technology of South Dakota. “Specialized design schools offered in larger markets are often geographically and financially inaccessible to many young people in our region,” Kealey says. “Our Institute provides an affordable and convenient alternative to a fouryear university setting for specialized training in both interior

and fashion design careers.” The Institute provides full-time programs as well as summer exploratory experiences and weekend workshops. In the 9-month full-time programs, students receive practical training in a specialized design career. Students can earn a certificate in Fashion Design Technology or Interior Decor & Staging. The programs are personalized to work with students’ schedules, and the smaller class sizes promote one-on-one learning. “Students are mentored by design professionals and they learn to market their creations as South Dakota Made products,” Kealey explains. “It is a fast paced learning process where students are challenged and rewarded by a complete entrepreneurial design experience. In addition to providing an

affordable option for our students to learn closer to home, we are able to employ and keep experienced design professionals and gifted mentors here in our state to teach their craft.” In the summer, Kealey and other design professionals conduct Project: Design Boot-Camp for students in grades 6-12 . It is designed to be a career exploratory program for these young students and is modeled after a program in which Anita participated at Parson’s School of Design in New York City – home of the Project Runway television show – when she was fashion design student there. Here in Sioux Falls at the IDTSD Design camp, June through August, students can live out their creative career dreams for a week. They complete fashion and design challenges and see their ideas transform from sketches

A Woman with Nothing to Hide.

No more varicose veins. No more cover-ups. Jasele Brue started having problems with varicose veins ten years ago. They got worse with each pregnancy. Not only did they look terrible, they were painful and kept her from participating in activities with her three boys. “I went to Veradia Interventional Radiology and Vein Center for laser treatment and it was 100% successful. Last summer I went to the pool without hiding under a cover-up. It was wonderful!”

Get ready for an amazing summer. If you’d like to free yourself from the pain and self-consciousness of varicose veins before summer, call Veradia Interventional Radiology and Vein Center now at 605-338-9740. Your procedure may be covered by insurance, and we now offer Care Credit (a payment option for our patients) as well! Call today for your free screening.

to completed projects. As the president and founder of The Design Studio, Inc., an award winning and innovative interior design firm, Kealey’s work has been seen in many national publications as well as on Home and Garden Television (HGTV). Her South Dakota made couture evening wear is widely seen on the red carpet and a multitude of special events. After two decades of her designs gracing the Miss America runway, her eco-friendly, up-cycled gowns created of sustainable and reclaimed materials made

their debut at the 2010 Pageant and at the Oscars. Awareness of sustainability in apparel design has also become a focus for designers at the Institute. Reclaimed and organic textiles are being used and creativity is reaching new levels as unconventional items are contrasted with simple shapes to create unique couture pieces. The Green Design Workshops and summer programs have sparked interest among more young people wanting to “up cycle“ their existing attire rather than buying new. Scholarships are available for students looking for financial assistance. The Project: Design Scholarship competition is open to current and recent high school graduates with an innovative spirit and interest in design. The Institute is looking to help jump start creative careers with hands on education. Kealey sums up the school’s mission very well. “At the Institute of Design and Technology of South Dakota, we believe our future entrepreneurs are cultivated early in life through creative classrooms or studios where there are no boundaries to the imagination.� For students interested in design and looking for an alternative learning experience at an affordable price, the Institute of Design & Technology of South Dakota just might be the perfect fit.

Heather Taylor Boysen & Reed Boysen 2201 Pendar Lane



eather Taylor Boysen and her husband, Reed, always wanted to live near McKennan Park. They were predominantly drawn to the historic neighborhood because they had both been raised in the area and liked the allure of being able to find a home with timeless roots. However, for several months, the Boysens attempted to find

a home in the Park’s vicinity, but were not able to due to the neighborhood’s ever-increasing popularity. “Beginning in 1996, we had searched for a home in this neighborhood and hadn’t had any luck,” said Heather. “It wasn’t until we came across some friends one night and they mentioned that a house on Pendar Lane was for sale. It ended

up being a house I was familiar with as a child, and within a week, we found ourselves putting in an offer.” The Colonial-style house was built in 1937, and is situated on the corner of 30th and Pendar Lane. It can be reached via a five-minute walk from McKennan Park and is placed on a street lined with rich history for the couple. The block is a crazy quilt of times past for the duo. Heather grew up in the house right across the street, her father in the brick home adjacent from

theirs, and her husband, just a few blocks over. The house, which Heather called “Grannie Pankow’s House,” because as a child she remembers crossing the street to what is her house today and asking Mrs. Pankow for candy, was not exactly the home she and her husband originally had in mind. It was in need of an awakening. After years of cutting décor ideas out of magazines, they finally began to implement those ideas in 2008. The home now encompasses and accommodates all

aspects of their lifestyle. From their collection of furniture to their refurbished and rewired antique lights, it works in part because Heather and Reed display all of their things so well. The house is livable modernism with a historic twist, one that accepts and makes virtue of the quirks of their personality rather than ruthlessly editing them out. The details in the home are emblematic of how the Boysens

wanted to tailor the house to fit their lifestyle, and not the other way around. The house embraces their individuality, by making art out of idiosyncrasies, and transforming furniture from old buildings around South Dakota into innovative and aesthetically pleasing decorative items. The home has a plethora of customized and eccentric details: The message board in the entryway that proudly displays their children’s (Elizabeth, 6, and Dane, 5) artwork is synonymous

with Heather’s family business, GoodSpirits Fine Wine & Liquor, as it is made entirely out of wine corks she and Reed had saved over the years. An old door in the foyer has been re-purposed as a decorative mirror. A folk-art style wooden bowl hand carved by the home’s builder Louis Pankow in 1934 sits near the dining room table. The candy dish that held the suckers given to the neighborhood children by Grannie Pankow years ago sits on their mantle. The rattan furniture in the sunroom was once in the Pi Beta Phi sorority house in Vermillion, SD, but has since been refinished by repainting the frames and re-upholstering the fabric. “I was looking through an Elle Décor magazine the other day and I saw furniture almost identical to the furniture I have in my sunroom. The only difference was it was obscenely expensive and painted fire-engine red,” said Heather. “People need to know that you can have great style on a limited budget.” The artwork and furniture in the home have the Boysen’s personal mark everywhere - the plant stand that sits in the sunroom was made by Reed out of an old door frame and ceiling tin. A hemp plaster relief from the old Washington High School auditorium that now hangs in the sunroom was a re-purposed art piece given as a gift to Heather from Reed. The wooden bench that sits in the foyer under the message corkboard is from an old church, hence the “For Families With Small Children,” plaque on the backrest. To boot, the couple is currently in the process of building a bar near the kitchen that will also make use of old materials taken from the church: the base of the bar will be made entirely out of an old communion rail.

The flowing space of the home makes it suitable for big parties and entertaining. The kitchen is the main focal point of the house. The room is a comfortable, crafted arrangement of old materials, and pieces the couple grew up with - such as the antique chopping block that is placed in the corner next to the kitchen sink. “The chopping block is from an old butcher shop from somewhere is South Dakota,” said Heather. “It was given to me by my mother and for years, I had hauled it around from house to house but was never able to fully utilize it because of its size. But I kept hauling it around because I always knew I would use it someday. So, when we remodeled our kitchen, we made sure to design a space big enough to make use of this specific piece.” The hardwood maple floor in the kitchen and dining room was yanked from old buildings downtown. “We replaced the original oak floors with the maple and when it was laid in place on the floor it was completely black,” said Boysen. “At first, I was a little worried. But, after it was sanded a million times and refinished, it turned out absolutely beautifully.” Almost every light fixture in the home is nearly a hundred years old, and every one has its very own distinct story. The art deco amber glass fixtures that hang in the entryway and sunroom were a house warming gift from Heather’s mother. The lights in the kitchen were gym lights found in an old high school by Reed’s architectural salvage and retail business, Architectural Elements. The awe-inspiring chandelier that hangs over the dining room table is from her cousin, Ann, who bought it at an auction at the old Horowitz Jewelers building years ago.

“I used to have a beautiful, 4-tier wedding cake chandelier original to the home that hung above the dining room table,” said Heather. “But, one day while I was cleaning it, it let loose from the ceiling and the crystals just shattered all over the floor I was absolutely devastated! Fortunately, my cousin Ann had the old Horowitz chandelier and thought it was much too big for her own home, so she sold it to me! She only lives a block away from us, so Reed, an electrician, and I went to her house, removed it from her dining room and secured it to a pole. I wrapped a big sheet around it and we walked it down the block to our house! I was even able to attach some of the remaining crystals from the old chandelier that didn’t break onto the new one. I love the feeling of being able to incorporate the old with the new.” A good number of adults have had the dream of one day moving back into their old neighborhood to raise their own children. Fortunately for the Boysens, that dream became a reality when they moved into their home on 2201 Pendar Lane. They instantly felt like they were home due to the constant inundation of their childhood memories. Although the couple has thoroughly updated the 1930s home, from adding 2,100 square feet, to several unique custom features, they’ve selectively kept many evocative objects to make it their own. The artwork and mementos in the Boysens home have helped lend the space personality and has maintained legacies of both people and buildings in and around South Dakota. Those constant reminders have not only brought the family to this home, but will keep them there for the rest of their lives.

How to Read a Wine Label BY RICCARDO TARABELSI GENERAL MANAGER, Westward Ho Country Club


o you read labels? My Executive Chef once sent me a cell phone picture of a label of a jar of sauce she found at a grocery store (identity of the sauce and the grocery store shall remain anonymous to protect the innocent,) and the first ingredient listed was “pig snout.” Ewww. Do you read wine labels? No, you won’t find pig snout, but they can be intimidating. Confused? Baffled? Puzzled? Yes, sometimes it is difficult to decipher wine labels, especially wines from Europe, but with a little research, a little knowledge, and, oh yes, a little drinking, you are already on your way to becoming a master wine label reader. Wine labels typically tell you, at a glance, the alcohol content, the growing region, bottle volume, name of the wine, quality and type of wine, the producer, and the variety and vintage. The alcohol content and bottle volume may be the easiest to recognize on a wine label. The alcohol content is a percentage,

usually around 12%-13%. In the U.S., the minimum alcohol for table wine is 7%, and 14% or 15% for the maximum. The bottle content is typically listed in milliliters, usually 750, or 1.5 liters. If the volume is not printed on the wine label, it will be on the bottle itself. The growing region may be a bit difficult since American wines are classified by grape type such as syrah or zinfandel, whereas many wines from Europe have their growing region as the name of the wine. Just look for both on the wine label and if you only see one, you know it’s the growing region on a European wine. Becoming familiar with producers when it comes to wine may be one of the most important aspects of finding a good bottle, and when you learn some of the best producers, you can quickly scan for them on a wine label. While everyone’s taste is of course subjective, you can think of a wine producer as being like a movie producer. You’re more likely to get a good movie

producers on the wine label will mean that you’re more likely to enjoy the contents. When you see the phrase varietal content on a wine label, know that this is the variety of wine, or type of grape the wine was made with. Remember that France and Italy do not reveal this information on their wine labels, so there may be some confusion. Knowing wine-growing regions in different countries around the world will help you immensely as you navigate wine stores or wine lists. Things like knowing that Chianti is made primarily with Sangiovese and is only made in Tuscany, or the Barossa Valley in Australia is known for bold and beautiful Shiraz, or Malbec from the Mendoza in Argentina are some of best wines in South

“Wine is bottled poetry.” —Robert Louis Stevenson

How to Read a French Wine Label

America, or that Bourgogne is the premier growing region in France for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The quality of wine is something awarded by wine regions and is also as subjective as movie ratings. If you see a rating of quality on a wine label, do not automatically assume that you personally will enjoy it, and remember that some of the less expensive wines are typically just as good as the top of the line brands. Now go. Go to your favorite wine store. Go to your favorite restaurant. Go bravely, now you have the beginning pieces to the puzzle of wine labels. And when you find that bottle, the one that speaks to you, uncork its treasure and unleash its poetry. Carpe Vino!

Any Day Cakes


After watching my grandson enjoy his “smash cake” on his first birthday I decided I needed to start baking more cakes. You don’t need a special occasion to bake a mouth watering cake....any day works for me. Cakes travel well, so bake and take one to work.

Strawberry Cake

Cookie Cake

white cake mix 3 ounce package strawberry gelatin 1 cup water 1/2 cup cooking oil 4 egg whites 1/2 cup mashed fresh strawberries frosting of your choice

white cake mix 1-1/4 cups water 1/3 cup cooking oil 3 egg whites 1 cup coarsely crushed cream filled chocolate sandwich cookies (8-10 cookies) frosting of your choice

In a large bowl combine the dry cake mix, gelatin powder, water and oil. Beat on low speed until moist and then beat 4 minutes on medium speed. In a small bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites and mashed strawberries into cake batter. Pour into three greased and floured 9 inch round baking pans. Bake at 350˚ for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes and remove cakes from pans. Frost between layers and sides and top with whipping cream or your favorite frosting. If frosted with whipping cream, please store in refrigerator.

In a bowl combine the cake mix, water, oil and egg whites. Beat on low speed for2-3 minutes. Fold in the crushed cookies and pour into two greased and floured 9 inch round baking pans. Bake at 350˚ for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10-15 minutes and remove from pans. Spread frosting between layers and over top and sides. May top with more crushed cookies.

Walnut Sheet Cake 1 cup butter 1 cup water 2 cups flour 2 cups sugar 2 eggs 1/2 cup sour cream 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon almond extract 1/4 teaspoon baking soda Frosting: 1/2 cup butter 1/4 cup milk 4-1/2 cups powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon almond extract 1 cup chopped walnuts Bring butter and water just to a boil in a large saucepan and remove from heat. Stir in the flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, salt, baking powder, almond extract and baking soda until smooth. Pour into a greased 15x10 inch baking pan. Bake at 375˚for 20-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes. To make the frosting, combine butter and milk in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the powdered sugar and almond extract until smooth. Stir in the walnuts and spread over warm cake.

t’s my favorite time of year. No, not Spring. Grilling season; food meats fire, trading electricity for charcoal, dining al fresco. Let’s take the whole thing out for some fresh air! That’s what Spring means to me. In my first installment of this column almost a year ago, I suggested cooking lamb chops as an alternative to burgers and hot dogs around the campfire. I was quickly called out as a grill snob. “Don’t you like burgers and hot dogs?” “Not everyone eats that fancy, you know!” But with so much great beef, pork, lamb and bison raised right here in South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota why mess around with a bland, boring Oscar Meyer wiener? I do occasionally cook up a hot dog, and confess to really liking the quarter pound all-beef Nathan’s Famous dog. I like to butterfly them and open them up so the meat just starts to caramelize on the grill. Then add some pickle relish and a healthy dose of Grey Poupon. It makes a pretty good summer Saturday lunch. Don’t get me wrong, I like burgers but I end up eating way

more fast food than I should. So when it’s time to eat at home, the idea of a disk of ground chuck wallowing in its own grease has little appeal. My idea of a good burger at home generally starts with either South Dakota ground lamb or ground bison from the Lazy RRse Ranch just outside of Sioux Falls. Here are my ideas for burgers worthy of a so-called grill snob. Blue Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Burgers If the first thing you think of when you hear the words “buffalo burger” are the over-cooked hockey pucks at Al’s Oasis, fear not, this will be a whole new experience. Start with a pound of ground buffalo. Former Sioux Falls mayor Rick Knobe sells his Lazy RRse buffalo at a couple of meat

markets here in town or at the Food Coop at 33th and Duluth. Divide the meat into 4 quarter pound balls and form them into patties. Put a few chunks of Maytag Blue Cheese (from Newton, Iowa) on two patties and top with the remaining patties, closing the cheese inside. Season the patties with fresh cracked black pepper, coarse sea or grey salt and a little New Mexico chili powder. If you don’t have New Mexico, use a mixture of paprika and cayenne pepper. Grill over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until medium rare. Be careful not to over-cook, Buffalo is leaner than beef so it will cook faster than ground chuck. Serve on a nice onion bun with a glass of hearty red wine. The chili powder gives the burgers just a little kick, but the blue cheese softens the blow. Heaven on a bun. Jim’s Lamb Burgers I know it sounds strange, but my dad, a Welshman through and through, grew up in a Des Moines neighborhood surrounded by Lebanese immigrants. I think his proximity to middle-easterners somehow introduced a lamb-loving gene into my DNA. It’s probably my favorite protein. I’ve often said that if a lamb wandered through my yard, I’d gnaw on its leg. This burger is an attempt for this Welsh guy to channel my dad’s boyhood Lebanese neighbors. Mix one pound of lamb with two cloves of finely chopped garlic and a tablespoon or so of finely chopped fresh rosemary, grey or

It’s good est right away, but the garlic really after a little wh comes to the fro ile, nt.

sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Form into 4 patties. Grill over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until medium rare. Don’t over cook lamb or I will hunt you down and beat you with a spatula! Seriously, overcooked lamb is not good. Don’t do it. Serve the lamb burgers on pita bread. I buy Saana’s homemade pitas from the Food Coop. Top with fresh tzatziki sauce and it’s a little bite of the Mediterranean right in your own backyard. So am I grill snob? So what if I’d rather use lamb or bison in burgers. Fine. I’m a grill snob. Does that make me a bad person? No, but it is making me hungry. I better go fire up the grill. Do yourself a favor, eat something good today. Jim Mathis is a guy who likes to cook but loves to grill. By day he runs an ad agency in the creative corridor of Uptown Sioux Falls.

or many, motherhood is about nesting. It is about creating a space for yourself, family and friends that is inviting, comfortable and safe. By using an earth-friendly design philosophy, you can create a home that is good for both you and the environment. Green design is more than changing light bulbs and Energy Star appliances; it’s about style and sustainability. This Mother’s Day, we’ll look for inspiration and tips to make our homes Mother Earth-approved. The green design movement is about choices that make a home cost-effective and eco-friendly, without sacrificing beauty. In my investigation, I came across two designers with

Michellekaufmann.com offers ideas and blog updates about green design. Search her site for “anatomy of a green room” to view examples of building blocks for a greener bedroom, living room and kitchen. The green movement is growing in the realm of design, architecture and even rehabilitation. Michelle Kaufmann was influential in the movement to make green living spaces achievable to all through affordable modern, prefabricated or modular homes that combine smart design, environmentallyfriendly materials, and water and energy conservation. Other design companies followed suit, including one out of Minnesota called FlatPak (flatpackhouse.com). While these may look like the homes of the future with their sharp angles and boxy frames, they are becoming the homes of today. This type of green building is slowly becoming more common around the country, but it is the norm in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. Modular home construction is one of the models followed by the Make It Right Foundation, founded by none other than Brad Pitt, to rebuild Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. While this type

of home isn’t popping up all over Sioux Falls, we can use their use of space, light, materials and emphasis on lowering energy bills as inspiration while greening our current homes. Many of us are compelled to compulsively redecorate our living spaces every couple months. We can modernize different aspects of our homes while still creating our own signature style. Talk to your designer or contractor about how to maximize the earth-friendliness of your project. If you are a Do-It-Yourself kind of gal, let the internet be your guide.

You’ll fall in love with my new favorite design websites: inhabitat.com, greenyourdecor.com and re-nest.com. If you love to browse magazines for ideas, there are online options such as newyorkhousemagazine.com. Visit edcmag.com for the Environmental Design+Construction magazine. Click the Digital Edition for monthly issues or specialty issues on flooring, etc. Also, visit sanctuarymagazine.org.au for access to articles and roomby-room tips from Australia’s only sustainable home design mag. These green guides make design and décor fun yet meaningful. The pretty pictures online or in magazines sometimes make me feel like I can’t recreate the look in my own place. There are easy switches that can green every home. Let’s discuss. A coat of paint can drastically change a room, but choose wisely. Paints and finishes can release low level toxic emissions into the air due to volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Find no or low VOC paints at Wal-Mart, Lowe’s and Home Depot. Flooring can also add style. Sustainable options include everything from concrete and rubber to carpet and wood. Look for carpets with low VOCs, recycled content and non-toxic dyes. If you love hardwood, consider bamboo, reclaimed wood or

wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as sustainably harvested. Another fun idea, especially in the kitchen, is cork. Mom can cushion her feet while finishing up dinner and if dad drops a dish it offers some shatter protection. Fill the spaces in between with eco-content. Consider refurbishing antiques or choosing furniture options that are made from recycled materials. Choose cotton or denim insulation. Choose dual-pane E-glass windows. Choose tiles and cabinet knobs made from 100% recycled glass. Choose countertops made from concrete or recycled porcelain. The choices are never ending and will provide many dinner-party anecdotes. When you make changes in your home, don’t forget to reduce waste. Give your old style new life by checking out siouxfallshabitat.org for a list of items accepted by Habitat for Humanity including cabinets, doors, windows, carpet, and countertops. If choosy moms choose Jif, then choosy homemakers choose to go green. We should all be homemakers in our own space and in the larger world. We have a responsibility to make our house and our world the best home we can.

Tomato Tips Tomatoes Just Have

Red flesh, out in the garden, jiggling on the vine? Globe shaped fruit with navel?


Don’t Forget Mom Call Now to Place Your Order

ztecs named it xitomatl (shi-to-ma-tlh), “globeshaped thing with a navel.” Botanists classified it as Lycopersicon, “wolf pear,” after the Spanish added it to the stewpots of 1500s Europe.” By late summer we observe tomatoes’ slowly changing colors – red, orange and yellow - and shapes – bite-size, cherry-like orbs; large squat and rounded slicers the size of a small grapefruit; and the firm pear shapes of plum tomatoes. Their seductive jiggling on the vines promises quarts of spaghetti sauce and chili. This is the month when nimble fingers are planting, planting. But slow your urges when it comes to tomato transplants fresh out of cozy greenhouses. If sunk into wet cold earth, they won’t be happy. Soil temperatures are extremely important when establishing warm-season plants like tomatoes. After all danger of frost is past, “harden off ” transplants by gradually increasing their outside exposure to full sun. Bring them inside for cool nights. Choose stocky, not leggy, plants. Avoid plants that are root-bound, when a mass of roots is wadded tightly into a small square of soil. Also avoid those with fruit already set. Final yield for those will be reduced. Consider the following when selecting tomato plants: your culinary purpose (fresh eating, sauces, salsa, freezing and canning, etc.), flavor, resistance to cracking and diseases, and yield.

To Be Fruit


The labels, determinate and indeterminate describe two growth habits by which tomato plants set fruit. Determinate plants produce at the tips of branches. Usually, once first fruit is set, stems cease to grow and bear. Determinant tomatoes usually produce early crops. Plants are smaller and can be planted closer together. With indeterminate plants, branch tips keep growing while tomatoes develop along the sides. Plants are usually taller and wider, should be spaced farther apart, and fare best with sturdy support. They will continue to produce as long as branches lengthen and weather is favorable. Green fruit will be left dangling after frost. For disease resistant tomato varieties, Martha and Roger Quam recommend ‘Better Bush’, ‘Granddaddy’, and ‘Brandyboy’. Favorites of Norm Evers are: ‘Sungold’ (cherry); ‘Juliet’ (grape); ‘First Lady’, ‘New Girl’, and ‘Legend’ (early season); ‘Celebrity’, ‘Better Boy’, ‘and Rushmore’ (mid season): ‘Thessaloniki’ (late season); ‘Viva Italia’, ‘Amish Paste’, ‘Sausage’, ‘and ‘Roma’ (plum or paste). Soil should be well-drained, non-compacted, and high in organic matter. Work in two bushels of decayed compost and/or manure (not fresh) per hundred square feet every spring before planting. When planting, bury roots and stems up to the lowest leaf. If plants are leggy, with a long stretch between the lowest

leaves and first roots, dig a deeper, wider hole and bury the leggy part parallel to the ground and carefully curl the leafy end upward. “Adventitious roots” will grow all along the buried stem. The word “adventitious” reminds me of one “advantage” most annuals have over perennial plants, trees and shrubs, which often have strict requirements for the depth of their crowns (the spot where roots meet stem). For the most generous crop of tomatoes, the ideal weather is a steady, moderate 70-75 degrees during the day and 65-68 at night. Gardeners can extend our short growing season by spreading sheets of plastic over the ground to transfer heat to soil. When cutting holes for plants, be sure that plastic does not touch tomato stems. Don’t lay plastic over dry soil. Plastic hoop tunnels conduct heat to soil while providing the protection that compares to heated greenhouses. Plastic milk jugs work too. Once soil has warmed, remove plastic, and spread several inches of compost or other mulch around the plants, again, keeping it away from stems. It is best to have soil tested in spring before adding a balanced fertilizer (NPK). The phosphorous (P) and potassium (K) parts of fertilizer do not readily leach from soil and can accumulate to high levels. You can apply one tablespoon of plain nitrogen (460-0, no P or K)) per plant every two weeks, keeping it six inches away from stems. Don’t exceed recommendations – too much nitrogen encourages abundant dark-green, leafy growth and

hardly any fruit. Maintain a disease control program throughout the season to avoid common tomato diseases of early blight, septoria leaf spot, late blight, and blossom end rot. Besides diseases, even small amounts of herbicides such as 2, 4-D can damage or kill tomatoes. Provide consistent, even watering, early in the day, at the base of plants, throughout the summer. Avoid long dry periods. Saturate the entire root zone, keeping foliage dry. It is best to provide one or two deep waterings a week instead of frequent slight applications. Avoid overhead sprinklers that splash soilborne diseases onto the leaves. Keep soil mulched, away from stems, to control weeds, retain soil moisture, and inhibit soil-borne diseases. Space plants at least two to three feet apart depending on variety for free air circulation. Stake them with rigid supports to keep fruit from touching the ground. Practice sanitation by discarding infected leaves. Rotate crops. Don’t plant tomatoes in same place, year after year. Here is the botanical definition of a fruit: the flesh is the ovary that houses the seed. Despite this, the 1893 Supreme Court deemed the tomato a vegetable based on the common practice of the time that classified them by use - served with dinner, not as dessert. Red flesh, out in the garden, jiggling on the vine? Globe shaped things with navels? Like Adam and Eve’s apples, tomatoes just have to be fruit.

title Auctioneers And Their Cracker-Barrel Cornucopias BY TED HEEREN



ickled animal fat sandwiches, Mennonites, show tunes, it’s a small town adventurer’s dream come true. Imagine if Rogers and Hammerstein made Wayne Porter’s Sculpture Garden near the Montrose Exit on I-90 into a musical, or if Walt Disney presented Wall Drug On Ice, Schmeckfest is a zesty sampler of small town charm, tradition, musical theater and food. The only problem is that you need tickets. And, as I learned the hard way, you don’t just get tickets to the Schmeckfest, not unless you’re an ancestor of Menno Simons himself, or a long lost great uncle left you a pair of general admission seats in his will. I’m not so lucky, so this month I hit up the VFW in Valley Springs instead. Now don’t get me wrong, the VFW is top shelf Roadie material. It’s just that this is only my 5th story, and I hate to have to go to my stand by so soon. But with Schmeckfest out of the picture, and my deadline fast approaching, I could read the proverbial writing on the wall.

Kris Tschetter (and friend)

Growing up on a farm near Norway Center, S.D., I’ve seen my share of auctions, livestock mostly, throw in the occasional exotic animal sale just to be safe. I once watched a black bear cub sell for just a shade under $2,000. I once bid on a 6 horned sheep with a phony ticket I made out of a church bulletin. I’ve seen a lot of whacky stuff in my day, but until last Saturday, I had never attended an auction at a VFW. Main Street frenzied with activity. It reminded me of the crash scene in It’s A Wonderful Life except instead of people rushing toward the wonderful ole’ Building And Loan they ran toward the VFW, and instead of clenching their hard earned bills tightly, they flailed them about, looking to spend them on something they probably didn’t need, but at a fair price. This particular sale featured a lot of artistic stuff, eclectics, collectibles and what have you. I didn’t notice any pot bellied hogs or mini-horses, I did notice a few hand carved marionette dolls though.

Three LPGA pros would like to give your kids golf lessons. For free. A free clinic for young golfers is just one reason to join Kris Tschetter, Cindy Rarick and Paige Mackenzie at the seventh annual YMCA Golf Classic. On Monday, June 7, 9 am at Minnehaha Country Club, you and the young golfers in your life can enjoy a Youth Clinic, Cindy Rarick Celebrity Skills Challenge and Long Drive Exhibition. Not only will your young golfers learn from the pros, you’ll meet ESPN’s Linda Cohn, long drive champion David Mobley and country music star Steve Azar. And it’s all to benefit the YMCA Middle School After School Program. For free passes to this summer’s premier golf outing, stop by the front desk of the YMCA downtown, or call 605-336-3190 ext 123.

Kinda freaky. I’m not sure if this is common place at VFW auctions, but I can almost guarantee that I wouldn’t have seen any of it at Schmeckfest, not unless they were putting on the Sound Of Music or maybe Galt MacDermot’s psychedelic rock musical Hair. The auction was shaping up to be a doozy, but I wasn’t there to buy. I was only observing. It’s in these observations that I feel I have something of value to share. If you’re a female who frequents VFW auctions, one who occasionally allows the husband to tag along, I’m going to set you up with some free advice. Let’s just assume you’re going to see some odd ball treasures that you simply must have, whether a marionette doll, a German watering can, or a roto-tiller from the 1920s. When they flip on the microphone you’ll do whatever it takes.

<-&.*'6*4-&(%/*=-(&$,* >'4#.(*5,-&.$


Winning the auction, that’s easy. Convincing the husband, not so much. To convince the man you’ll have to answer 2 big questions. The first is a real corker, “What is it?” It’s important that you answer this one quickly, and with confidence. If you don’t know what it is, make something up. Get creative. “That? Duh, it’s an owl sculpture made out of pine cones.” You get the idea. The next question is nasty, but if you answer the first question correctly, number 2 is a breeze. “Where ya’ gonna put it?” The answer to this question is always the same. It’s the location farthest away from your husband’s favorite chair. Boom. Follow these simple guidelines and husband will fall in line. You can also just ignore him entirely. That’s all from Valley Springs, next stop: Estelline, SD.

Barcelona Beauty S

ettled on the northeastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula and the shores of the Mediterranean, Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain both in size and population. It is also the capital of Catalonia, one of the 17 Autonomous Communities that make up Spain. Peppered with small hills with neighborhoods built upon them, Barcelona contains 68 municipal parks and seven beaches. Barcelona is also known for its award-winning


industrial design. A two-day bus tour is available in Barcelona, which gives an overview of the beautiful main tourist hot spots and allows you to get off and on wherever you please. Many of the buildings in Barcelona date from medieval times. A great number of these buildings are World Heritage Sites, which are places of either cultural or physical significance. Especially remarkable is the work of architect Antoni Gaudi,

which can be seen throughout the city. Gaudi was famous for his unique and highly individualistic designs. No trip to Barcelona would be complete without visiting Segrada Familia. An amazingly beautiful construction by Gaudi and originally intended to be a modest, neo-Gothic church, this utterly surreal temple has arguably become the most famous building in Barcelona. Under construction since 1882, Sagrada Familia is called the “unfinished church”, and architects are still completing Gaudi’s incomplete work, combining his style with a more modern architectural standard. Representing the Chinese symbol of order within chaos, turtles are what form the base of the giant columns throughout Segrada Familia. A colorful diversity of materials such as mosaic, iron, plaster, ceramics, and various types of stone complete the unbelievable detail and design of this wonderful church. Audio recordings are available for personal explanations of what every room entails during your tour of Segrada Familia. Plenty of wonderful little shops surround the area as well, offering great souvenirs and gifts. Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia is entirely worth the time it takes to explore and experience. The very detailed and unique architecture from the inside out will awe anyone who enters. The completion of the “unfinished church” is planned for 2026. You might also want to take a day to explore Ramblas, a series of streets, joined together one after the other, that lead

from Placa Catulunya to the sea. Named after religious buildings such as convents and churches built on both sides in the 13th century, Ramblas offers a very colorful street life experience. The streets of Ramblas are full of activities and people well into the late hours. Many local talents showcase their crafts right on the streets, including mimes, dancers, artists and entertainers. There are several eclectic shops, a market to browse in and enjoy, and plenty of great food. Beware of pickpockets though, as they tend to target tourists! It is highly recommended by those who have visited Barcelona to take a camera, find a café with outdoor patio seating, and simply people-watch. While in at Ramblas, visit Font de Canaletes, a small fountain where legend states that if you drink from it you are sure to return to Barcelona one day. Montjuic Castle stands on top of Montjuic hill, and offers a beautiful view of the Barcelona bay and city. Built in 1640 during the War of the Segadors to resist Felipe IV’s forces, Montjuic Castle has become a symbol of centralist repression and the abolition of Catalan liberties. It was once a military prison and is now the Military Museum, or Museu Militar. Half the fun of visiting this breathtaking castle is getting there, taking the subway to the Funicula cable car, to the Gondola ride to the top of the hill. Just strolling around the grounds and enjoying the view of the harbor and the city of Barcelona could satisfy most of your time spent at Montjuic Castle.

Another one of the most interesting things to see in Barcelona, Park Guell was also one of Gaudi’s creations. Aiming to create a harmonious combination of urban and natural landscapes by building houses, gardens, and public institutions between the years 1910 and 1914, this project was never fully completed. However, there is a fantastic mix of architectural styles to absorb at Park Guell. From the classical columns of the Sala de las Cien Columnas, or Hall of the Hundred Columns, which is covered in colored mosaic tiles, to the fantastic blend of plants, patterns, and other craftsmanship of Gaudi, this park is a celebratory blending of man and nature. Barcelona is also the place where the world-famous artist, Picasso, started his long artistic career. His most important early works, including engravings, lithographs, and pottery, can be viewed at the Barcelona Picasso Museum. The most famous pieces on show here are his Harlequin, a portrait of one of his wives, Jacqueline, and the Las Meninas series. Basically laying out Picasso’s life in chronological order, the Barcelona Picasso Museum focuses on works from when the artist was still developing and finding his artistic voice. With many more things to do and see in Barcelona, Spain, the list is never-ending. After taking in the stunning views of the wonderful city, it will be the sort of trip that will leave you craving more.

ow would you celebrate turning 40? Would you plan your dream vacation? Throw a blowout bash? Schedule your first mammogram? The last option may have thrown you for a loop; however for two physicians at Sanford, scheduling a mammogram was number one on their priority list as they geared up for their 40th birthdays. General Surgeon Melissa Johnson, MD, and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Heather Karu, MD, see women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer coming through the doors of their clinic every day. “I am always stunned at how young the women in my clinic are who have breast cancer. While I see a tremendous number of women between 40 and 50 with the disease, I also find that many of those diagnoses are found at an early stage because of mammography,” said Dr. Johnson. If you’re on the cusp of turning 40, here is some information on technology, screening

recommendations and family history in relation to breast cancer. What is a mammogram? A mammogram is a screening mechanism which uses low dose X-rays to examine a woman’s breasts. Most recently, digital mammography has become one of the most relied upon sources of screening technology to hit screening centers and clinics. Digital mammography uses a computer to create high quality images of the breast increasing the physician’s ability to detect cancer when it is most treatable. Digital mammography offers advantages over film screen mammography by improving contrast and image quality – especially for women with dense breasts. This may allow for better cancer detection. In addition, near instantaneous image acquisition and the ability to transmit images electronically are also significant advantages. One can have

Here’s one thing you should do! a mammogram at a remote site with the images sent, displayed and interpreted at a medical center. When should you have your mammogram? The American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and older should have screening mammograms every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health. Furthermore, women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam as part of a periodic health exam by a health professional, at least every three years. After age 40, women should have a clinical breast exam by a health professional every year. “It is so important to get mammograms at a young age because breasts are very dense. If a family member has had breast cancer, women should have their first mammogram at least ten years prior to the age of when the family member’s initial

diagnosis was made,” said Dr. Johnson. What if I have a family history of breast cancer? For Dr. Karu and Dr. Johnson, breast cancer awareness hits close to home. Both physicians’ grandmothers were diagnosed with breast cancer in their mid-sixties. Today, they are healthy and vibrant in their early 90s. “I believe my grandmother is here today because of early detection. It is just another reason why I am getting a mammogram,” said Dr. Karu. While one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, the risk for women who have a family history of the disease increases to 15-30%. The risk for women with a genetic mutation inherited from either parent is even higher— approximately 60-87%. The first step in determining your risk is gathering information about your family’s

history of cancer. It is important to find out which relatives on both sides of your family have had cancer, the type of cancer and the age at which they were diagnosed. Talk to your healthcare provider about meeting with a genetic counselor to interpret your family tree and assess your risk. If your family does not have a history of breast cancer, your chances of having a gene mutation are very low. Give yourself the gift of health on your birthday! “One of the most important things I want women to know about breast cancer is that it doesn’t obey the rules. A mammogram is part of who I am – it is what I advocate and it is what I am passionate about,” said Heather Karu, MD. It is never too late to get your mammogram. Call your healthcare provider today or Sanford Breast Health Institute to schedule your mammogram.

pring has arrived, and the birds are busy making their nests and singing their songs for us. Spring is the perfect time to get involved with bird feeding and bird watching. You don’t need to buy fancy bird feeders to feed your backyard companions. Why not create your own bird feeder and make it a family occasion? There are many fun crafts to do with your kids in order to celebrate the return of these wonderful creatures. Children love to watch the birds, especially when the birds are enjoying something created just for them by the child. Bird feeders create a pleasant atmosphere full of singing birds. Constant feeding is their sole source of energy and warmth. Before the children create an adorable bird feeder, it might help to check out the bird books at your local library — for specific details on the different species of birds in your area and what their favorite foods are. Encourage your kids to explore the wildlife in their own backyard. This way the children can try to identify which birds are feeding there and learn some new things in the process.

Classic Pinecone Feeder The pinecone feeder is a classic craft for kids to make the birds. Children of all ages can help to make this feeder. You will need a pinecone, ribbon or yarn, wax paper, peanut butter, breadcrumbs, birdseed, a large bowl, and a wooden spoon. Tie a few feet of ribbon or yarn near the top of the

pinecone so it can be hung. Lay the pinecone on wax paper. Mix 1/4 c. peanut butter and 1/4 c. breadcrumbs into the large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until smooth. Next, spread the mixture on the pinecone and roll it in birdseed. Press additional seed between the scales of the pinecone and hang outside where you and your kids can watch from a window while the birds and squirrels enjoy the result.

Bread Slice Nibbler


UNBELIEVABLE Kids – Adult Sizes

Use a cookie cutter to create different shapes from slices of sandwich bread. Simple shapes such as hearts, stars and circles work great for a fast and easy task given to your child. Let the bread sit out for at least a couple of hours until dried. Then, line a plate with birdseed. Use a toothpick or wooden skewer to poke a hole through the bread, leaving just enough room above the hole so it doesn’t tear. This will be where the yarn goes. Thread the yarn through the hole and gently tie it into a knot. Spread peanut butter on both sides of the cutout bread shape. Next, lay each side of the bread shape down on the birdseed in order to coat thoroughly. Hang your creation outside, making sure it is in close proximity to a branch for birds to perch on.

Hanging Fruit Case Cut an orange or a grapefruit in half. Once you enjoy the inside of the fruit, save the unbroken, tough outer cover.

This will become a cup to hold bird food. Attach it to a hanger made from string or yarn, and suspend from a tree branch outdoors for birds to discover. This also will work with a coconut shell.

Bird Baby Food Feeder

Platform Feeder

Some Tips

Build your own platform feeder by sinking a pole into the ground and topping it with a wooden platform. Make sure it is at a reachable height. If you need to, create some sort of edge on the platform to help catch the seeds. Alternatively, you could place the platform on a porch or a windowsill.

Dog food is a cheaper alternative to seed, and large birds will happily eat it. In addition, eggshells are perfect for birds to use as grits to help them digest seed. Mix crumbled eggshells in with your seed as a grit-alternative and an added calcium source. Sunflower seeds, corn, and fruit are great food options for birds. Also, aside from widespread myths, studies have shown that rice and peanut butter are not harmful to birds.

Pie Tin Holder Set a pie tin on a stool or flat tree trunk or hang it in a plant hanger. Punch drainage holes in it and elevate it by placing small rocks or twigs beneath it.

Bottle Perch Punch holes on either side of a plastic bottle and stick a twig or pencil all the way through with its ends sticking out for perches. Poke more holes nearby for the birds to pull the seeds out. Hang the bottle by tying some yarn around its neck.

Tie a string around the neck of a baby food jar and fill it with orange juice. Hang this from a tree for the Orioles to take dainty sips from while perching on the rim.

The recent beautiful spring weather makes us want to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and blue skies. There is something about blooming dogwood trees and daffodil fields that is sure to put a smile on our faces. The sound of birds chirping when you wake up is motivation to start the day off with a happy thought. We feel more energetic on a glorious spring day and your children will too. So get your children involved in giving back to nature and having lots of fun at the same time.

Encourage Healthy Habits

Help your child overcome the threat of childhood obesity BY DONNA FARRIS, for Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center


irst, the bad news: Childhood obesity is a growing health threat for today’s kids. The good news? Parents have more influence than anyone in preventing or addressing this problem. Over the past 25 years, incidence of childhood obesity among children ages 6 to 19 has grown from around 5% to 17%, according to research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even among preschoolers, obesity has increased from 5% to around 12%. Obesity is a risk factor for developing serious health problems such as Type 2 diabetes and heart

disease at younger ages. Dr. Shannon Hoime, pediatrician with Avera McGreevy Clinic, said several factors are to blame, including bigger portions of high-fat, high-sugar foods, coupled with less outdoor play and more time in front of the TV or computer screen. Babies and toddlers will typically eat when they’re hungry and stop when they’re full – a skill many of us forget as we get older, Dr. Hoime said. “They’re good at listening to their bodies.” At that age, it’s a parent’s job to offer the child healthy

for sweetness. Reserve foods like donuts, candy or chips as an occasional special treat. High fat content is not the only culprit. For example, highsugar drinks like pop and even juice can lead to weight gain. Instead of juice, children are better off drinking water and eating whole fruit. If a child is too heavy, the best approach is not to call attention to it or place the child on a strict diet, Dr. Hoime said. Rather, through changes in diet and more activity, help the child maintain his or her current weight. As the child grows in height, the weight problem should disappear. Don’t expect drastic changes overnight, Dr. Hoime said. Instead, encourage small steps toward a healthier lifestyle and offer to take those steps with your child. More activity is the other side of the equation for children in maintaining a healthy weight. Often, just limiting “screen time” is enough to get a child up and moving, Dr. Hoime said. Encourage children to find a sport or activity that they enjoy that gets their heart rate up, so that they get “red in the face and out of breath,” and do it for at least 30 minutes a day. “It can be anything that gets kids off the couch,” Dr. Hoime said. It always helps if parents can get out and enjoy activities with their children, she added. “The best thing parents can do is to model healthy habits.” For more information about children’s health and parenting tips, go to www.AveraChildrens.org.

choices for meals and snacks. Some babies may carry “baby fat” which usually isn’t worrisome until after age 1 or 2. In fact, babies need fat for healthy brain development. Yet bad habits can start early. “If we always tend to use food as a pacifier, or as a reward, it can be a set-up for eating problems in the future,” Dr. Hoime said. Instead of using candy or dessert, reward children with extra playtime or stickers, she suggested. Early on, children begin to model their family’s eating habits. So if parents eat high-fat processed foods, skip the fruits and vegetables and munch on chips while watching TV, their children are likely to pick up the same behaviors, Dr. Hoime said. “Genetics play a role as well,” she added. The reverse is also true – if families have healthy eating habits, children will pick up on that. A good place to start is having family mealtimes together at the table – with the TV off to discourage “mindless eating.” Be aware of portion sizes, and encourage children to stop when they’re full rather than insisting they “clean their plate.” Look at the whole day’s meals and snacks as a way to incorporate a balanced diet. If children don’t eat their fruit at lunch, for example, offer it as an afternoon snack. Change the whole family’s eating habits to include more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Limit high-sugar, high-fat treats and snacks. Instead, offer snacks like granola bars, whole grain crackers, yogurt, fruit cups or trail mix made with nuts, dried fruit, whole grain cereals and a few mini chocolate chips

THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE WONDERFUL BOOKS FOR CHILDREN WE HAVE COME ACROSS THIS MONTH. WE HOPE TO SHARE WITH YOU SOME YOU HAVE NOT SEEN BEFORE AND ALSO INTRODUCE OTHERS BEING RELEASED IN THE NEAR FUTURE. ENJOY. Encyclopedia Mythologica: Gods and Heroes by Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda For all of recorded history, humans have sought to understand Earth’s mysteries in the realm of the divine — and aspired to conduct themselves as heroes. Only gods, of course, could push the sun across the sky, forge entire continents, and impel mountains to touch the clouds. In this stunning volume, the incomparable team of Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda take us to Ra-Atum’s land in Ancient Egypt; above the Grecian clouds to Zeus’s Mount Olympus; up to Norse god Odin’s frozen north; to the Far East, where the Jade Emperor sits in the heavens; into the wilds of Oceania, where Pele’s volcanic rage simmers below the earth; and to many more lands and times, all rich with sacred myths and legends. Ages 5 yrs and up Candlewick Press Bag in the Wind by Ted Kooser One cold morning in early spring, a bulldozer pushes a pile of garbage around a landfill and uncovers an empty plastic bag — a perfectly good bag, the color of the skin of a yellow onion, with two holes for handles — that someone has thrown away. Just then, a puff of wind lifts the rolling, flapping bag over a chain-link fence and into the lives of several townsfolk — a can-collecting girl, a homeless man, a store owner — not that all of them notice. Renowned poet Ted Kooser fashions an understated yet compassionate world full of happenstance and connection, neglect and care, all perfectly expressed in Barry Root’s tender illustrations. True to the book’s earth-friendly spirit, it is printed on paper containing 100 percent recycled post-consumer waste and includes an author’s note on recycling plastic bags.

Lori title Popkes Mom is the Best Job Title BY JOHN NICHOLS


other’s Day is special to all moms, but it has special significance to Lori Popkes. The Rock Rapids, IA native and her husband Greg are proud parents of seven daughters ages 26 to 10. For those of us with one or two daughters, the thought of raising seven through their teen years simply boggles the mind, but Popkes takes it in stride. “The bustle, the energy, and yes, the chaos is what makes each day special and exciting.” While raising seven daughters makes for an overflowing plate, Lori’s connection to motherhood doesn’t end there. As assistant vice president of Women and Children’s Services at Avera McKennan Hospital, Lori oversees the department that helps hundreds of women become mothers each year. While Lori has enjoyed great professional success, she is the first to say that “Mom” is the job title she loves most.

We Can Help If you have children you should consider a will. It can give you peace of mind concerning who will care for them and their financial future as well.

Was having a big family something you always wanted to do? Yes, ever since I was little. I was the youngest of four and family was something that was always very important to me. ETC: What are the biggest challenges and joys in having seven children? The joys come from that sense of family and belonging. There’s such energy with a big family - the comings and goings and the different interests and personalities make every day interesting and fun. I really enjoy that. The challenges are in balancing everything, getting everyone where they are supposed to be, and caring for the boring stuff like laundry.

Y TODA L L A ia C ring Spec ls! for Sp

With seven daughters did your husband have to build himself a separate bathroom? (laughs) Everybody asks how my husband copes, but we’ve been fortunate enough to have a house with plenty of bathrooms. It’s ironic, because he’s from a large family too, but all boys. When we started having our daughters, his mother was so tickled because she finally got to have some girls around the house. When I was pregnant with our last, people said, “I’ll bet you are hoping for a boy.” But I always said no, I think that would be pretty tough to have that many older sisters. It would be like having seven mothers. ETC: How were you able to balance your career with motherhood? Nursing was a good fit because it offered me the option to work three 12-hour shifts, which allowed me to be home four days a week. Also, I’ve always told my girls that Nursing is an incredible privilege. How many other jobs are there where you can positively impact people’s lives on a day-to-day basis like that? ETC: With your personal and professional experience, what advice do you have for new or expecting moms? (deep breath) I think of motherhood like I do Nursing - don’t underestimate the amazing opportunity that it is. Unfortunately, we sometimes see children born here who are unloved or unwanted and that is so incredibly sad. I firmly believe that my children are God’s children and I’ve just been given the opportunity to shape their lives. I often think we underestimate the impact we have, both good and bad, so I just try to be the best example I can be.

ETC: What should men know about motherhood that maybe we don’t know already? Be involved and take a genuine interest in your kids. We all get so busy building our lives that it’s easy to forget our time with our children is so limited. Also, guys love in different ways. I tell my girls if dad asks about your car or asks if you’ve had your oil changed, that’s his way of saying, ‘I love you.’ ETC: How did your delivery experiences shape your philosophy on your work? Most of my kids were born in a small hospital in a very familycentered environment, which was perfect for us. From that, one thing I’m very passionate about is that we try to honor the wishes of our families. Some people like having a lot of people around, and some don’t. Everyone’s comfort zone is a little different, so we really try to clue in on their wishes and respect that. ETC: What does Mother’s Day mean to you? I find that as the years have gone by I think a lot about my own mother. She passed about seven years ago, but she was such a great influence on my life. Also, as my girls have gotten older, I find myself reflecting on the questions every mother has – Am I doing everything I can? Have I done everything right? Just reminding myself what a gift it is to be their mother and how fortunate I am to be a part of their lives. Lori’s daughters Kristy, Melinda, Julie, Deann, Jennifer, Katie, and Emily wish their Mom a very Happy Mother’s Day.”

Like Owner, Like Pet title BY DICK ROGEN, DVM ,

Horizon Pet Care, 1224 E. Holly Blvd., Brandon, SD, (605) 582.8445


e share more with our pets than you can imagine! It is hard as pet owners to have our best friends become ill or injured. It comes as a surprise to many that we share many of the same illnesses, cancers and injuries with our pets. Dogs have as many knee problems as people do. I think some of it is due to the “weekend warrior” syndrome that people experience. They do not exercise at a high level on a regular basis, and then we take them out for long runs, hard play or a day of hunting. The ligaments, muscles and tendons are not ready for that much use. Torn ACL ligaments, tendon sprains, damaged menisci and muscle strains will occur in our pets. Strains and sprains will heal with rest and the proper medications to take pain and swelling out. The torn ACL however requires surgical repair to allow them to return to a normal lifestyle. We repair one or two knees a week at Horizon Pet Care, so it is very common.

Diabetes is common in cats and dogs. It is somewhat related to being overweight, diet and genetics. We treat diabetic pets with insulin just like people. The early symptoms of diabetes are thirst, increased urination and weight loss. A simple blood test can detect the high blood sugars that are diagnostic for diabetes. Cancer is no stranger to dogs and cats either. They experience all of the same types of cancer that people do. We can treat tumors with surgery to remove all or a bulk of the tumor. We give them the same chemotherapy medications that people receive and radiation therapy is available at University hospitals. They can be cured in some cases or their life extended in many cancers today. There is virtually every medical condition that a human can experience that is also present in our pets. It makes being a Veterinarian challenging and enjoyable.

Pets also can experience mental health issues too. We have a lot of pets that experience phobias or fears of noises, storms and fireworks. They can become very stressed and upset by these stimulations. Medications and changes in environment can help, but a pill alone will not solve the problem. Stress can be shown in our pets in a variety of manners, from the simple pacing and panting that many pet owners have

observed. But other pets can pull out their hair, lick deep sores on their legs and even become anorexic over the social pressures they perceive are occurring. Simple things like a change in work schedules, a visitor or construction on the house next door can trigger these behaviors When I look at the life my pets have, it is hard to think they have much stress in their days, but to them it may be real. It is hard for them to tell you they are upset and their signals can be subtle or not so subtle when they urinate in our house. Check for lumps or bumps, monitor their weight and look for changes in their behaviors. It’s important to keep them happy and healthy. Keep an eye on your friends!

Renner Field

title Renner Field, Village of Renner City Park



n the mid-1920s, a prominent Sioux Falls aviator and former US Army pilot, Harold W. Tennant, began providing flight instruction and air taxi service on an 118-acre field owned by George Renner, one-quarter mile southwest of here. The first full-scale flight facility for Sioux Falls, Dakota Airlines, was established here on December 27, 1927. Nellie Willhite, South Dakota’s first licensed aviatrix, received flight instruction and soloed at this field. While testing a new Kari-Keen monoplane, Tennant and a companion died in a tragic crash nearby in September 1928.

Dakota Airlines was dissolved February 2, 1931, when Renner Air Service was established. By then the airport included two large hangers, which faced west parallel to the railroad tracks, a small hanger with an office at the north entrance, a Standard Oil gasoline pump with a 1000-gallon tank, a prominent windsock, and designated landing areas maintained for yearround flying. Several open cockpit biplanes were used for flight instruction and a five passenger Ryan monoplane provided transport service. Air shows and airplane races were staged periodically at the field. Flight operations were discontinued here in January of 1935.

Harold Tennant’s Airplane Fleet Tennant phased out his aerial circus and exhibition flying in 1925 and founded Tennant Air Service & School at Renner Field. On September 28, 1928, he was test-flying a new Kari-Keen Sioux Coupe when the center section of the wing broke loose. The crippled plane nose-dived into a pasture near Renner Field, and Tennant, age 32, and his passenger were killed.

Sioux Falls First Aviator Lt. Harold W. Tennant was a pilot who served with the US Army Air Service during World War I. He bought a government surplus JN-4D, commonly called a “Jenny,” and formed an aerial team with his brother Ed. Named “The Tennant Brothers,” Harold piloted the plane while Ed performed aerial acrobatics including wing-walking! Other pilots and stuntmen joined the group, which was then billed as an “aerial circus!”
