ole Shawd and his father love to share ideas, love to talk about business and love to bring fresh, exciting visions to the table. It was from such a conversation two years ago that Shawd came up with the idea for Mixed-GO GREEN! They had been talking about a new twist on “fast food” – a restaurant specializing in salads. When a couple of months went by and Shawd couldn’t get this idea out of his head, he started researching and putting plans in place for this fast, healthy and “green” restaurant that is now open on Louise Avenue in Sioux Falls. “I kept thinking about what would work in Sioux Falls. With salads becoming more popular on restaurant menus and with people becoming more conscious about healthy eating, I thought a restaurant like Mixed could really fill a niche here for healthy food on the go.” Specializing in made-to-order salads, the restaurant offers more than 45 toppings and 25 regular and low-fat/fat-free dressings. The mathematical potential of unique combinations is rather mind-boggling! Guests “go green” from the moment they walk through the door, stepping into a restaurant filled with natural light and bright colors all around. Immediately, the stage is set for the experience Shawd wants customers to have. The next stop is the counter, where customers can continue the build-your-own salad journey by choosing from the wide

array of fresh ingredients and watching while the Salad Mixers build their custom order in a chilled stainless steel bowl (the salad is also served in this bowl), designed so every inch is cooled to perfection. The staff mixes and blends all of the tasty toppings and greens together at the Mix Station…ensuring that every bite is full of flavor. If trying to choose from the abundance of fresh ingredients is too overwhelming, customers can select one of the salad mixes from the menu – everything from Buffalo Chicken, Fruit or Oriental to the BLT, Taco or the Coastal, which is made with fresh tuna and shrimp. While salads are their specialty, Mixed also ensures that customers have other great tasting options. They serve breakfast items all day, and they also offer wraps, paninis, soups, and sides such as macaroni, pasta and potato salad. And for kids? Mixed offers a number of choices from the classic PBJ or mac & cheese, to chicken strips, the healthy “Mini Mix Salad” or a “Minini” (a smaller version Panini). “We want our customers to feel great about what they eat and where they eat,” says Shawd. “That’s what going green at Mixed is all about. When you eat at Mixed, you know you are getting fresh, healthy foods. But, you can also feel great knowing you helped the planet and environment by just coming to see us.” From his own past experience in the hotel industry, where environmentally sound practices had become a growing movement, Shawd knew early on in his business planning that he wanted to do

something positive for his customers and for the environment. Mixed-GO GREEN! follows strict practices that keep their operation as green as it can be. For example, Mixed uses 100% Recycled Bleach Free Process paper towels, napkins, and roll towels. They also have Energy Star rated refrigeration equipment; reusable bowls for their salad creations; environment-friendly cleaning products; menus printed on recycled paper; and compostable cups, lids, plates, containers, straws, and silverware. Even the flooring in the restaurant is made from recycled material. “Taking care of our customers and the world our customers live in is just part of our experience,” says Shawd. “We go green with how we work and green with what we make.” Mixed-GO GREEN! also offers catering for groups of 10 or more and free business delivery for any order over $20. You can preorder for a group or business using the Fax Order Form on their website or call ahead for ordering and easy curbside pickup. So, what does Dad think of the conversation with his son that turned into a restaurant? “He loves it,” says Shawd. “He knows how much work I have put into it, and we are all so excited about the response from customers in the short time we have been open.”

Guatemala Meets Sioux Falls BY MARY MICHAELS | PHOTOS BY CHANG PHOTOGRAPHY

estled in a little brick building on 8th Street, near downtown Sioux Falls, is Jacky’s Restaurant & Bakery. Here, Guatemala meets Sioux Falls, with a menu featuring nearly 60 different items for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In January of 2009, Jerry Van Loh and his wife, Jacky, opened the restaurant in a portion of the building located at 702 E. 8th Street – just across from the Union Gospel Mission. They recently remodeled to fill the entire building, however, with the restaurant seating one side and an expanded bakery on the other. Jacky was born in Guatemala and brings to the restaurant all of the cooking and baking experience she gained from her mother and grandmother while she was growing up. In the late 1990s, a hurricane devastated the banana crops – and the economy – where she lived, so Jacky made the decision to come to the United States, even though it meant leaving some of her children behind for a while until she got settled. She had a

brother living in Sioux Falls at the time, and she went to work for John Morrell & Company. That is where she met Jerry Van Loh. The couple has been married for 6 years, and Jacky initially just wanted to open a bakery. First they looked at opening a small business such as the coffee “huts” you see in parking lots around town. “You still have to go through all the work to obtain all of the proper licenses for one of those,” Jerry says, “and there is a significant cost for the hut itself. So, as long as we were going to be doing all of the work, we decided to open a restaurant when I found this building.” Jacky’s offers a wide array of Comida Latinoamericana – Latin American food – that is made fresh and made to order. You can start your day with breakfast, choosing from such items as Huevos Rancheros or a Breakfast Burrito that are served with beans and fried plantains – some of the staple items in Guatemalan cooking.

Jacky’s Restaurant & Bakery | 702 E. 8th Street | Sioux Falls | (605) 336-0588 At lunch or dinner, and you’ll start with a basket of warm tortilla chips and homemade salsa while browsing through the menu filled with everything from quesadillas, tostadas and tacos to burritos, enchiladas and their popular fajitas (with a portion big enough to share or take home!). The menu also includes several seafood items as well as Latin American specialties like chile relleno, tamales, chuchitos, bistec and their own version of Chow Mein. Jacky’s recently added a small buffet that will feature different menu items each day. A few dessert items are already on the menu – flan, sopapillas and Jacky’s special Tres Leches (“three milks”) cake – but with the expansion of their bakery, more treats are now available for customers. The bakery includes a wide variety of breads, muffins, cakes, cookies, cheesecake and rolls such as bolillos and telera, which are the rolls used in the restaurant for their tortas – a Mexican bread stuffed with meat and other fresh ingredients. Jerry says they continue to research the best ingredients not only for their restaurant food, but also for Jacky’s baking. “The right ingredients make all the difference,” he says, “particularly for the specialties like Jacky’s three-milk cake. There is also an ingredient similar to a bouillon that goes into all Guatemalan foods. Those are the things that make our food unique and taste great.” Once Jacky was able to have her entire family reunited here in

Sioux Falls, the children all became involved in the business. For example, her daughter now helps with the many special cake orders that come in for birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. Customers can choose from a very simple cake to a more elaborate design with multiple tiers. In the Latin American culture, a girl’s 15th birthday – or Quinceañera - marks her passage into womanhood. This occasion is typically marked with a celebration that could rival a wedding. For a recent Quinceañera, Jacky’s daughter prepared a display of eleven separate cakes on multiple tiers and all surrounded with tulle and lights. Not to worry, though…for those boys celebrating birthdays, they can also create cakes featuring everything from sports to superheros. Both Jerry and Jacky admit they have had to work hard to get their business going, but they are grateful for all of the customers who have found them and continue to come back – as well as excited for the opportunity to expand Jacky’s bakery offerings. “We hope that people who haven’t tried Jacky’s before will come see us,” Jerry says. “I think they’ll see that we have something special to offer. We may be slower than ‘fast food,’ but you will know that you are getting only the freshest food that tastes great.”

Enjoy Life on

FallsFood.com BY AMANDA PETERSEN

I

t had been in development for a little over a year and then in March, 2010 it finally arrived, FallsFood.com that is. FallsFood.com is a local website that delivers a fun way to get locals interested in businesses by having 3 $25 gift card drawings (despite the name, for more than just for food), on a daily basis, for simply becoming a free member and choosing businesses they like. Nate, the owner, says the site is aimed at being a “daily routine like checking your email and Facebook.” He says, “after getting those out of the way, make your 3 gift card choices and come back the following business day to see if you’re one of the winners.” He also notifies the winners via email. (over 330 winners since March!) But if daily gift card giveaways to your favorite local businesses aren’t your cup of tea, FallsFood allows visitors to post and view free classifieds, events, photos, recipes, and print local coupons. FallsFood.com is also making an effort to support the Sioux Falls area’s growing music scene by offering bands (for free) a place to display their music for all to hear. Nate, a movie trailer buff, claims most “trailers are better than the full length version.” That’s why he

added Falls Films to FallsFood. Falls Films not only provides local movie times but also the actual video preview to help assist in movie decision needs. It has “Coming Soon” previews too. Nate says “the really cool thing about FallsFood.com is that it’s community driven. Membership is free but you must live within a 100 mile radius of town.” So, content submitted by members is local and always approved by Nate before posting to the site. FallsFood.com has one of the most followed local Facebook pages (Facebook.com/FallsFood), so unlike fly-by-night website attempts, this one (many fans are hoping) is here to stay.

The Bryan Huls & Alison Larson Home

Hayes District in the McKennan Park Area BY ASHLEY SANDBORN | PHOTOS BY BRYAN HULS

ryan Huls and Alison Larson’s home is not your average house in the McKennan Park area. While the exterior does maintain the same traditional and historic appeal of the other houses in the neighborhood, the interior boasts to be a modernist gem. The couple’s home is a few blocks away from McKennan Park,

where their Italian Greyhounds, Razza and Rex are regulars. The couple also feels that it’s easy to live in the area because of the accessibility of nearby amenities of downtown Sioux Falls. “We always wanted to live in this area because we found the appeal in the old, unique houses,” said Alison. “In the McKennan area, no two houses are the same.”


In 2004, the couple purchased their home and has since renovated every room, except for the kitchen and bathroom. The home was originally built in 1918, and very little had been changed to the home prior to their purchasing it six years ago. However, since then old and dingy carpet has been taken out in favor of the original oak flooring and 3 tiny windows have been

replaced with a large, 8-foot patio door in the dining room. “We used to have to stand on our tip-toes to see our backyard,” said Alison. “Now with the new windows, it is clearly visible and it’s become the dogs’ favorite place to sunbathe.” Other renovations to the home include: adding new windows and insulation to a 3-season room upstairs, so that it can be

utilized year round, adding recessed lighting and crown molding to the living room, and remodeling all 3 bedrooms. In addition, two porches in the home, one on the main level and another on the second floor, have since been enclosed and made into an office for Bryan and an exercise room for both. On the main floor, Bryan’s office contains an impressive collection of modern furniture. However, the first thing visitors see upon arrival is a wall chock-full of skateboards. “The skateboards are from a client I created a website for several years ago,” said Bryan. “He (Brian Sumner) was a pro skateboarder for Birdhouse. I don’t skate anymore, so I made them into pieces of wall art with reclaimed aluminum.” Overall, the remodel project has been a steady and ongoing process for the couple. “We have not yet finished our remodeling as we still have the bathroom and kitchen to go, as well as an unfinished basement that we would like to make use of,” said Alison. “However, for anyone who has ever remodeled themselves, they know most things take longer than expected. It is pretty much an ongoing process for us.” The property was already well landscaped prior to the couple moving in; however, they’ve since added a deck to the house to extend the living space into an outdoor room, and Bryan has also built a raised cedar garden box, so that the couple, who are both vegetarians, can grow their own vegetables. “We were lucky to have had a lot of beautiful flowers already

planted when we moved in,” said Alison. “We’ve been able to enjoy them every year. There are still tons of ideas on what we would like to do with the landscaping, but we still have not settled on anything and would rather do it right the first time.” On both levels of their 1,600-square-foot-home, the modernist influence is not too difficult to detect. It’s confirmed by a wide array of contemporary and innovative furniture that blends stylishly into each other. Their white Vernor Panton chairs, Rosewood desk, Sapien bookcases, and Eames executive chair are contrasted by more exotic accessories like Hand Hooks by Harry Allen for Areaware, and a Norm69 pendant lamp chandelier that hangs beautifully above their dining room table. A majority of the décor was purchased in stores that exclusively tailor to modern and contemporary design: DWR, Hive Modern, and Unica Home. However, several of the items are vintage classics acquired on eBay, and others are pieces that they’ve created or fabricated themselves. “The entertainment stand in the living room was fabricated to match the speaker stands,” said Bryan. “It was designed to take up minimal space, but not be wall-mounted. We’re able to move it around, which is very convenient.” The stand itself was made out of 3/8” aluminum, the tube light was created out of 8’ fluorescent tubes banded around a core, and the stemware rack was crafted from an old skateboard rail. The result is impressive. Furthermore, the entertainment stand is clearly indicative of the couple’s creative nature.

World Cup of Wine BY RICCARDO TARABELSI

Part 2

GENERAL MANAGER, Westward Ho Country Club

Netherlands

I

f you read my article last month, I listed my predictions for this year’s World Cup competition. On one hand, I think I did pretty well, naming 5 of the final 8 teams. On the other hand, I picked Italy and Brazil to be in the final… Italy never made it out of the first round, and Brazil lost in the quarterfinals. So, we have the Netherlands vs. Spain. I am writing this before the final match so here’s my prediction: Spain will win the 2010 World Cup. In honor of this year’s (predicted) winner, here is a glimpse into Spain’s illustrious wine industry.

Spain

Spain has over 2.9 million acres of vines planted—making it the most widely planted wine producing nation, but it is only the third largest producer of wine in the world, the largest being Italy and France. This is due, in part, to the very low yields and wide spacing of the old vines planted on the dry, infertile soil found in many Spanish wine regions. The country is ninth in worldwide consumptions with Spaniards drinking, on average, 10.06 gallons a year. The country has an abundance of native grape varieties, with over 600 varieties planted throughout

etc. for her | August 2010 35


Spain though 80 percent of the country’s wine production is from only a handful of grapes—including Tempranillo, Albariño, Garnacha, Parellada, Cariñena and Monastrell. Major Spanish wine regions include the Rioja and Ribera del Duero which is known for their Tempranillo production; Jerez, the home of the fortified wine Sherry; Rías Baixas in the northwest region of Galicia that is known for its white wines made from Albariño. In Spain, winemakers often use the Spanish word elaborar (to elaborate) rather than fabricar (to produce/make) when describing the Spanish winemaking philosophy. This relates to the view that the winemaker acts as more of a nurturer of the

grapes and wine rather than as a producer. For many years, Spanish winemaking was very rustic and steeped in tradition. This included the judicious use of oak with some wines, even whites, spending as much as two decades aging in the barrel. This created distinctly identifiable flavors that were internationally associated with the wines from regions such as the Rioja. Winemakers in regions like the Rioja found that the Tempranillo grape, in particular, responded well to new American oak. In the 1990s, more winemakers started to rediscover the use of French oak and some wineries will use a combination of both as a blend. Most DO (Denominación de Origen) wines require

VINO


some minimum period of barrel aging which will be stipulated on the wine label by the designations - Crianza, Reserva, and Gran Reserva depending on how long it spends in the barrel. The tradition of long barrel and bottle aging has meant that most Spanish wines are ready to drink once they hit the market. A new generation of winemakers has started to produce more vino joven (young wines) that are released with very little aging. Spain is also known two other types of wine: Cava and Sherry. Cava is Spain’s sparkling wine like Champagne, and Sherry is a fortified wine produced in specific towns in Spain. With Spain’s winemaking diversity, a perfect wine dinner would look like this:

Cava for an aperitif, Albariño with a seafood dish, Tempranillo for an intermezzo, a Rioja Gran Reserva for the main dish, and then finish off the evening with a Sherry. It must be some sort of conditional response because I’m starting to salivate… When it comes to a culture that is full of life, passion, and quality, Spain definitely comes to mind. Have fun this month with Spanish wine and live the Spanish lifestyle (by staying up all night!) and drinking some great wines from Western Europe. Carpe España!

Do You Know Where

Your Dinner

BY JIM MATHIS

I

will admit that I don’t read labels as often as I should. I’ve heard all of the public service announcements telling me to read labels, but I’m an impulsive guy. If it looks good, I buy it. But when I’m cooking at home, I do want to know where my food came from. Not that I’m one of those manic locavores that only eats food raised within a hundred mile radius, but it’s nice to know where the morsels were harvested. I think it started years ago at an oyster bar in New Orleans. The old shucker behind the counter knew where the oysters were raised. Not just the vague general area—all of the oysters were from Louisiana—his knowledge went far beyond that. He knew which fisherman and which boat had brought them in. He knew which bay they came from, and based on where the oyster

40 nest | MAN IN THE KITCHEN

had lived, he knew the subtle differences in flavor the specific location had imparted in each oyster. If you talk to people who really know wine (like Riccardo, whose wisdom is found in the pages of this magazine), they talk about “terroir,” the flavors the earth adds to the fruit and the character of the wine. If you’re talking to wine people, knowing where a wine comes from will tell them a lot about the wine before they ever open the bottle. In some cases, the origin of the product is controlled by law; bourbon comes from Kentucky, scotch comes from Scotland and Champagne can only come from the Champagne region of France; everything else is sparkling wine. Beyond wine and oysters, I have become pretty picky about


Came From? the origin of certain foods; I like lamb from South Dakota, Colorado or New Zealand, I want my Parmesan to come from Parma, Italy and never from a green cardboard can! I only buy wild caught American shrimp, because I have learned that if it doesn’t say that it’s wild American, it was probably farm-raised in Indonesia, and I don’t want to speculate what went into it. And with the problems the fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico are facing now, I want to give them all of the support I can. So how does a person keep track of where your food came from? You can either grow it yourself or buy it directly from the person who did. That’s why I like farmers markets. I can spend a Saturday morning talking with the producers, learning about the new things they are offering, what is perfectly in season and

share a few tips on how to prepare their bounty. Sioux Falls is blessed with a bunch of farmers markets scattered around the city, and while I’m partial to the market at Falls Park, all are great sources of fresh, locally grown goodies. And the real beauty of the markets is that you will find things the local mega-mart doesn’t have. Have you ever bought Brussels sprouts still on the stem? How about fresh heirloom tomatoes in red and green and purple? Last fall I bought a hand made garlic braid and just used the last of the garlic this summer. You never know what you’re going to find, so be sure to go with an open mind. If you think the farmers market is just a source for veggies, you haven’t been to the market lately. Want locally raised beef?

If you see corn on the cob in May, you can bet that it wasn’t grown between here and Canton.

Got it. Duck? Lamb? How about heritage Berkshire pork? Check. All are available at the local markets, along with jellies and jams and fresh roasted coffee and all sorts of other goodies. One word of caution, some of the “farm stands” on the street corners sell fruits and veggies that are neither “fresh” nor “local.” If you see corn on the cob in May, you can bet that it wasn’t grown between here and Canton. One of my favorite farmers market finds is real baby carrots. These are not to be confused with the carrot stubs from the grocery store. Did you know those aren’t baby carrots at all? They are ground down from the broken and misshaped carrots in a big factory. Carrots should come from the ground, not a machine. I love to take the baby carrots, clean them up and sauté them with a little butter and a few fresh sage leaves. I shamelessly stole the idea from a friend in California, so around our house we call the dish Camille’s carrots. How much do I like farmers markets? Well so far this year I’ve been to markets in Sioux Falls, Des Moines and Chicago. And

42 nest | MAN IN THE KITCHEN

if you’re ever in Madison, Wisconsin, on a Saturday morning, you’ve got to check out the market there. It is outstanding. When we’re traveling, we like to check out the local farmers markets; it is a great place to find out a lot about the local food scene. While we are there, we usually pick up some local cheese and crackers to take back to the hotel. Some farmers markets have fresh baked goods and coffee, so go early and have breakfast there. As I write this on a warm Thursday evening, I’m finishing a glass of wine from Sonoma County, California, after a dinner of South Dakota lamb chops with a mint chimichurri made with herbs from the garden, and skewers of fresh grilled farmers market vegetables. I know where my dinner came from. Do you? Do yourself a favor, eat something good today. Jim pays for his locally raised produce by running ADwërks, an ad agency in uptown Sioux Falls.

Oily Situation: Green Lens on the Gulf BY BRIANNA COCHRAN

W

hile “being green� is thought of as very modern and chic, it also carries the weight of being aware of environmental events. We’ve read the news blurbs, seen video of the birds rescued, maybe looked at NASA satellite photos revealing the silvery cloud of oil spreading through the Gulf of Mexico. The oil spill that began April 20, forty miles off the coast of Louisiana,

5000 feet beneath the surface, however, feels very far away. This threat is very real to our air, coastlines, national reserves and parks, endangered species and more that we have a collective stake in as residents of America. Perhaps that sounds a little preachy or overdramatic, but the aftermath will be part of our legacy. Women are often typecast as the doer, the cleaner, the nurturer. Why not prove our skills by reaching out to our home away from home in the gulf to make a green difference? The heartbreaking idea of animals suffocating in oil makes me want to help mop it up.

controlled burns on the water, releasing thick smoke. The Food and Drug Administration (fda.gov) is working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (noaa.gov) to track the oil and keep seafood harvested from this area safe. NOAA has closed a large part of the commercial fishing area as well as shell fish beds. This necessary precaution, however, is having a devastating effect on the coastal fishing industry. Also hit hard: the tourism industry. Many livelihoods are being impacted, even lost. As you plan the last of your summer, remember that not all hot spots are affected. Check out Visitflorida.com for beach closures and to view local webcams to see for yourself. Of course, the ever-resilient New Orleans is as vibrant as ever (neworleansonline.com). Perhaps your gift to the coast could be in the form of a getaway for yourself. This article is meant to bring a few facts, a few organizations, a few ideas into the limelight; it is not an Op-Ed piece preaching oil = evil. In the spirit of “green,” however, I must mention that the crude oil in the gulf coast waters seems removed from the refined oil that fuels our transportation and is present in almost

every aspect of our lives – plastics, fertilizers, crayons, candle wax, asphalt we drive on, even deodorant. While BP has taken responsibility, and in turn must be responsible for the actual clean up, we all have a hand in fueling the oil industry. Finding new domestic reserves has become more dangerous – drilling 5,000 feet below the water or Shell’s possible plan to drill in the arctic waters off the northwest coast of Alaska. Let us not forget the 11 who died in the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion that prompted the leak. Greenpeace.org calls for a clean energy revolution in the spill’s aftermath. The Ocean Future’s Society, run by Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of Jacques Cousteau) seconds this opinion (oceanfutures.org). The future will be up to the oil companies and the White House to decide. Just like natural disasters, earthquakes in Haiti and Chile or the volcanic eruption in Iceland, this man-made disaster will also be easily forgotten once the media attention has passed. It is up to us to remember. As I write this sentence, we are in Day 81 of the oil spill. Hopefully as we enter August it will be contained, controlled, but the outcome is yet unknown.

Emerald Ash Borer title “Déjà Vu All Over Again” BY MARY ELLEN CONNELLY | PHOTOS BY MARY ELLEN CONNELLY

H

e punctuated the “if ” and “when” like staccato notes. “It’s not if the emerald ash borer will get to South Dakota, “but when,” Dr. John Ball told attendees at a First Detectors Training Class for emerald ash borer and other tree diseases. Surely by now, readers have heard of the emerald ash borer’s (EAB) indiscriminate demise of ash trees in states east of South Dakota, moving in this direction. Over forty million ash trees have died. The little beetle is a new species to North America and was accidentally brought from northeast Asia. It’s not a stranger to cold winters and hot summers; its home latitudes are similar to ours. During the class, John showed recent before and after photos of a lovely Chicago neighborhood that had been infested by EAB. At first there was leafy, cool shade. But in the after picture, the glare of denuded curbs, streets, sidewalks, and large houses seemed to jump from the frame. For me, the pictures resounded with Yogi Berra’s glib quote, “It’s déjà vu all over again.” My mind’s eye saw Sioux Falls’ streets of the 1970s, when urban beauty met disaster in the form of Dutch elm disease. Magnificent tunnels of green were downed by the depressing whine of chain saw blades. Sixty years of elm tree growth was ground up in few hours, an entire block of trees in a day or two.

So what did we learn from the elm tree debacle? Not much. First of all, we didn’t learn the importance of tree diversity. Fifty years ago Sioux Falls’ neighborhoods grew a nearmonoculture of elms, and when they died, many of us planted only ash trees to replace them. Today, ash trees make up about one-third of all of South Dakota’s urban trees. Percentages are higher in many newer developments where “modern” practices have destroyed deep soil profiles and given back only token, skimpy topsoil. Ashes are common shelterbelt trees. “If you were a little EAB you would have a road map and ask, how can I get to South Dakota where there is so much food?” John said. But we did learn that it was impossible to save the elm trees with fungicides and insecticides. Only a few isolated elms remain today (not counting newer, Dutch elm resistant trees). Even if poisons could halt the spread of EAB, which they probably won’t, pouring unnecessary chemicals into the environment may stress plants in other ways, kill beneficial insects, and potentially harm people, children, pets, and birds. John Ball’s rule for insecticide treatment of EAB is: “Do not treat for emerald ash borer until the insect is found in an adjacent county or fifteen miles away.” If you decide to treat, do so to prolong the life of a tree but not to save it. Property owners will bear costs for treatment and/or removal of ash trees.

A new logo isn’t the only reason you’ll look twice.

EAB was first discovered in 2002, killing ash trees in southeast Michigan’s Detroit area, though it was probably there since the 1990s. Because of EAB’s poor flying ability, experts at first didn’t expect it to travel very far, very quickly. But then it showed up in Maryland (2003), Ohio (2005), Illinois (2007), Missouri (2008), and Wisconsin and Minnesota (2009). Northeast Iowa reported it this year, 2010, though predictions hadn’t put it there until two decades from now, 2027. It’s also in parts of Canada. Just because the bug hasn’t yet visibly materialized in South Dakota doesn’t mean it isn’t lurking about somewhere. When someone identifies the first EAB infested ash tree in South Dakota, odds are it will be at a campground, as has happened in other states. Transport of firewood and quarantined nursery stock, despite laws against both, has spread EAB farther and sooner than expected. “It would take 85 years for the insect to fly from Michigan to South Dakota, but it could be here tomorrow at the speed of a car,” John said. John emphasized that even in states that have found the insect, there are still vast treed areas that don’t have it. “We probably will find EAB here within five years, but there will be counties that won’t see it for twenty years,” he said. (It took twenty years for Dutch elm disease to travel from southeast Minnehaha County to northwest Harding County.)

We’ve learned from mistakes made in Michigan, John told our class. After EAB’s first discovery in 2002, federal dollars paid for dying ash tree removal and clear-cutting of healthy ash within a half-mile of infected trees. Moving infected trees, especially during summer months, probably spread the insect farther. Today’s goal is to slow insect movement in order to spread out the cost and time to remove dying trees. Guidelines are based on the life cycle of the insect. Once detected, these are guidelines to slow movement of emerald ash borer: • Do not move contaminated ash wood during warmer months of late May, June, July, and August when adult beetles emerge from the trees and seek new food sources. • Chip ash wood into pieces less than one-inch in diameter. Do this on site. Move Infected wood only during cooler months from Labor Day through spring. • To salvage ash lumber, completely strip the bark and chip it on site before transporting the wood. Federal and state governments have authority to quarantine affected areas. Here are the steps to identify emerald ash borer: First: Be sure the suspect tree is an ash. EAB only attacks ash trees, Fraxinus. Green ash is a South Dakota native, and black,

blue, and white ash grow here. Manchurian ash also grows here and is the only one that is somewhat resistant to EAB. (Mountain ash, prickly ash and ash-leaf maple are not true ashes.) It takes the EAB one to five years to kill an ash tree. Next, look for symptoms. Common ash borers, other pests, and drought already afflict ash trees and can cause the first four symptoms. • A thinning canopy with sparse leaves or branches dying in the upper part of the tree. • Small sprouts or suckers from lower trunk, lower branches, or roots. • Short vertical splits on the bark. • Increased woodpecker activity that sometimes strips away sections of bark. • Cream-colored, 1.25”, legless larvae under the bark. • Extensive serpentine galleries, the larval feeding tunnels, directly under the bark, on the wood, not in the wood. • Crisp, one-eighth inch, D-shaped, adult exit holes. (D-shaped holes are common on many other trees, but are usually larger than EAB exit holes.)

August until late October, visitors can get fresh goods at the Cheyenne Farmer’s Market. Downtown Cheyenne offers unique attractions such as gunslingers, a reenactment of gunfights, western skits, and Wild West activities in the Old Town Square. Get familiar with the rich history of Cheyenne by taking a fullynarrated historic tour on the enclosed Cheyenne Street Railway Trolley, which runs May through the end of September. Other tour options include a horse drawn carriage ride, or a personal walking tour on your own time. Many museums await your arrival in Cheyenne. The Nelson Museum of the West offers a collection of stories and old west memorabilia. The Old West Museum is famous for its exhibits on rodeos and the history of Wyoming. Housing some 60,000 artifacts, this museum includes more than 150 carriages, the largest collection of horse-drawn vehicles in the state, and is considered the premier cultural and historical center in Southeastern Wyoming. Also, take a tour of the F.E. Warren Air Force Base, which offers shows on the history of Fort D.A. Russell and is home of the ICBM Missile Museum. The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens are the perfect place to go and get lost in the scenery. With numerous specialty gardens and landscapes, the unique solar conservatory is 100% solar heated and 50% of the electricity is powered by the sun as well. As the Intermountain West’s oldest and one of the largest demonstration sites for sustainable and renewable energy, the Botanic Gardens offers the Paul Smith Children’s Village, which demonstrates solar heating, solar power and wind energy. Located approximately 30 miles east of Cheyenne, Pine Bluffs Rodeo offers shows on Friday nights through August 6th. Also available at Pine Bluffs Rodeo are barrel racing, team roping, goat tying, bull riding, and more. Curt Gowdy State Park is located 20 miles west of Cheyenne, and is a great place to camp, fish, boat, hike, and picnic. Cheyenne is close to Laramie, home to the University of Wyoming and the center of open-plains ranching country. Nestled on the high plains in Southeastern Wyoming between the Laramie Mountains and the Rockies, Laramie is a friendly college community. Visit the American Heritage Center and see rare books, photographs, and memorabilia related to American and Western history. From 1872 to 1903, Laramie held the region’s federal and state prison, locking down notorious

frontier outlaws such as Butch Cassidy. Today the Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site is a restored prison that brings to life the legends of frontier law and justice, available for tours. Experience the excitement of horseback rides, wagon tours, and prime rib dinners at the Terry Bison Ranch, just a few miles out of the center of Cheyenne. Also located in the foothills of the Medicine Bow National Forest between Cheyenne and Laramie is Bit-OWyo Ranch, which invites you to “settle in” for the best cowboy entertainment in the Wild West. Enjoy a Horse Barn Dinner Show with a cowboy steak dinner including Bit-O-Wyo baked beans and applesauce. After dinner, be entertained by music and comedy. BitO-Wyo Ranch also offers fabulous trail rides overlooking valleys and creeks as well as shaded Aspen Groves. There are many ski resorts located nearby in The Medicine Bow National Forest in the Colorado Rockies, which has a rich cowboy heritage. Many trail systems reside in this National Forest as well. I-80 is the quickest way to get from here to there in the region, with the Lincoln Monument state rest area, where you can view a larger-than-life sculpture of the 16th president. If you have some time to spare, there are other options for scenic drives that display the wonderfully beautiful landscapes Southeastern Wyoming has to offer. Winding over the high plains, past Curt Gowdy State Park, Happy Jack Road offers a breathtaking view and provides access to the Vedauwoo Recreation Area. The Vedauwoo Recreation Area is a particularly unusual area with open meadows and stunning scenery. What makes it unusual are the glacial remnants sprinting out of the open meadows in the form of huge granite boulders, creating all sorts of shapes. These rock formations, made of gray stone, are a great avenue for hiking, climbing, and photography. The word “Vedauwoo” (pronounced VEE-da-voo) means “earth born” and is of Arapaho descent. The area used to be considered a sacred place where young Indian men went on vision quests. There are also plenty of opportunities for sight-seeing, fishing, and camping. In the winter there is snow showing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Visit Southeastern Wyoming for a fun and relaxing western vacation.

Your Annual Well Woman Exam I

f you’ve thought about putting off your annual well woman exam and health screenings due to media reports, think again. There’s been a lot in the news about changing guidelines for mammograms and pap smears in the last year, but the bottom line advice is this: Keep going in for annual exams, and ask your provider about what health screenings you should get depending on your age and risk factors, says Dr. Jane Peters, OB/GYN physician with Avera Women’s in Sioux Falls. “There have been new guidelines issued, but women shouldn’t stop getting various health screenings because they’ve read an article.

It’s still very important for good health and prevention BY DONNA FARRIS, for Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center

They should talk with their health care provider about what these guidelines mean to them,” Dr. Peters said. In addition, not all health agencies and physicians agree on the guidelines. For example, the U.S. Prevention Services Task Force recommended that screening mammograms begin at age 50 instead of 40, and then take place every two years until age 74. “However, many physicians are sticking to the American Cancer Society guidelines that say annual mammograms should begin at age 40, and are still beneficial after age 75,” Dr. Peters said. While breast cancer is less common for women in their 40s,

women in their 40s still have a 1 in 69 chance of getting breast cancer. What’s more, 17 percent of all breast cancer deaths involve women in their 40s. Also, mammograms can find cancer that can’t be felt, leading to earlier detection of breast cancer. If a woman develops breast cancer in her 40s but it’s not detected until years later, her chances for a cure are less favorable. “Early detection is key, and we need to use as many tools as possible to find cancer early, whether it’s mammography, annual clinical breast exams, or monthly self-breast exams,” Dr. Peters said.

While many physicians are not changing their mammography recommendations, pap smear guidelines have been changed by the American College of Obstetricians/Gynecologists. It’s now recommended that pap tests don’t begin until age 21. That’s because even if young women are sexually active, their risk of cervical cancer is very low, Dr. Peters said. However, young women do need annual exams. “Even before age 21, there are a lot of things that can go wrong that are detrimental to a woman’s health,” Dr. Peters said. If sexually active, young women need counseling about safe sex and family planning. They also may need STD testing if appropriate. Pap smears are recommended every two years for women age 21-30, and every three years for women over age 30 if they have had three consecutive normal pap smears. These guidelines may change based on personal or family history and risk factors, Dr. Peters said. For example, a new partner may expose a woman to HPV, which leads to most types of cervical cancer.

“These guidelines may make women automatically think they don’t need an annual pelvic exam, but this isn’t the case,” Dr. Peters said. An annual pelvic exam can detect other types of gynecologic cancer or conditions. For example, the only screening for ovarian cancer is a pelvic exam. A well woman exam may also include tests of blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol. At age 50, colon screening should begin, and earlier for patients at higher risk. “Your provider needs to know your personal and family history in order to know what you’re at greatest risk for, whether it’s diabetes, heart disease, or cancer,” Dr. Peters said. Annual exams make up just one piece in the puzzle for preventative health. “You have to take what you get with family history,” Dr. Peters said. “But there are a lot of factors you can control for better health, such as maintaining a healthy weight, good eating and exercise habits, and not smoking. That’s a basic recipe for wellness.”

Protecting Your Infant R

unny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, cough and fever. Sounds like the common cold, right? Today, physicians are warning parents to watch for signs of something worse – Whooping Cough. Whooping Cough (also known as Pertussis) is the most common vaccine-preventable disease among children younger than five in the United States. Despite the widespread use of vaccines, Whooping Cough has made a comeback in recent years, including yearly cases in South Dakota. Whooping Cough is very contagious and spreads by contact with someone who has the disease or by contact with recently contaminated surfaces. The disease causes an awful cough – the hallmark of the infection – that can last for several months. In addition to severe coughing, the disease can cause weight loss, incontinence, rib fractures, pneumonia and passing out from violent coughing. Antibiotics do not make the illness shorter or less severe.Whooping Cough is contagious from seven days after exposure to three weeks after the onset of coughing spasms. The most contagious time is during the first stage of the illness. Although most adults were immunized in childhood,

from Whooping Cough recent studies have shown that adults are now susceptible to whooping cough and account for up to 25% of cases. The disease, however, tends to be milder in adults and adolescents — a persistent cough much like an upper respiratory infection or cold. Because of this fine distinction, the diagnosis of Whooping Cough is frequently missed in that population and thus allows the bacteria to spread to infants and children. Infants who have Whooping Cough can cough violently until the air is out of their lungs. Then, the infant will inhale with a harsh “whooping” sound.

BY PAMELA EPHGRAVE, MD Sanford Clinic Ephgrave OB/GYN

to the disease until they have finished their immunizations, the Centers for Disease Control recommend adults who have close contact with an infant receive a dose of Tdap vaccine. Vaccinating adults is expected to reduce the cases of Whooping Cough in infants. The Tdap vaccine can protect adolescents and adults against three serious diseases: Whooping Cough, Tetanus, Diphtheria

According to the Centers for Disease Control: • More than half of infants under one year of age with whooping cough must be hospitalized. • One in ten children with Whooping Cough gets pneumonia. • While rare, other complications may include seizures, brain disorders and even death.

Who should receive the Tdap vaccination? • New parents • Grandparents • Child care providers • Healthcare workers who care for babies • Anyone 11-64 years old who has not had a tetanus vaccination in the past two years

Fortunately, a Whooping Cough booster shot for adolescents and adults is now available. It is combined with the adult tetanus diphtheria booster. Because infants do not have full immunity

Goldilocks and the Three Bears by Emma Chichester Clark Once upon a time, a naughty little girl named Goldilocks stuck her nose where it didn’t belong. She didn’t wonder. She didn’t ask. She walked straight into the Three Bears’ house and made herself at home. “Disgusting and cold!” she proclaimed of a bowl of porridge. “Awful!” she groaned, sinking into a too-soft chair. “Bullseye!” she cried, snuggling up in a bed that was just as right as right could be.

My Elephant by Petr Horacek What to do when Grandpa and Grandma are too busy to play? Ask your imaginary elephant, of course!

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.

Ages 4 yrs - 7 yrs Candlewick Press

Did My Mother Do That? by Sharon Holt Holly loves to hear the story of the night when she was born — but first she needs to ask a lot of questions. Did her mother hatch her out of an egg? Did she carry Holly in her pocket? Maybe she fed her baby mice for dinner? As Holly and her dad rule out one imaginary scenario after another, little listeners will be eager to join in, while learning some interesting details along the way. Ages 3 yrs and up

Shelley Furtado-Linton: Mover and Shaker BY DIANNE ERDMANN

W

hen you think of bellydancing, does it conjure up images of exotic, veiled women dancing for an admiring male audience? Would it surprise you to learn that this expressive and beautiful dance was originally performed by women for women? Out of its ancient origins, bellydance has grown, incorporating various styles and fusions. Flip through the fitness channels, or look at recent DVD offerings, and you will see bellydancing is enjoying a surge in popularity. Its appeal extends to women of all ages and backgrounds. We visited with Shelley Furtado-Linton, a member of the Liquid Hip Therapy bellydance troupe, to learn more about the appeal of bellydance to today’s women. Have you always loved to dance? Oh yes! I’ve been dancing since I was five. I started with jazz and tap, and later ballroom dancing. My parents actually competed in

ballroom dancing, and my dad showed me. It was while I was taking ballroom dancing classes that I saw the offer for bellydancing classes. I showed up one night, and fell in love with it! Tell me about that night. What happened? That night they were using a veil and finger cymbals (zils). It was kind of intimidating to walk in, but I was welcomed right away. I didn’t have a veil or zils. Next thing I knew, someone had handed me a veil, and another some zils. Although I know I was probably pretty amusing to watch, I never felt that. I felt I had the ability to do it. This really was a dance created by women for women. What in particular appealed to you about bellydancing? The style of the dance is very feminine, which appeals to me because I am a girly-girl. Around me were these strong, confident women. They were so reassuring. Even when I had no clue what I was doing, the camaraderie kept me going. I fell in love with the dance and the dancers. How was bellydancing different from the other dance classes you had attended?


In other dance environments, it can sometimes be competitive. I don’t get that in bellydance. We had a workshop with Amy Siegal (a nationally-known bellydancer) and you would never have known she wasn’t just one of the girls. How has bellydancing affected you physically? It helped me physically shape up, but still stay curvy. I used to be a runner, with belly dance I got the strength of a runner but now kept my curves. It has helped with my posture, overall strengthening, and flexibility. We are not in touch enough with our shoulders, our ribcage. I found muscles I didn’t know I could control. What would you say to anyone toying with the idea of trying bellydancing? Can anyone do it? Yes! Anybody, any size, can do it. The curvier the better! Bellydancing class is the one place you go where it is good to jiggle. I’d say just try a couple of classes. The women will support you through the learning curve. All the techniques can be developed. Will everyone get to a professional level? No, it’s not about that. It’s about experiencing your own body, how it feels to move and not worry about whether you are doing it right or not. I think we are all able to hear the beat, feel the rhythm. It has just gotten lost. Being in touch with your body is so powerful to you as a woman. What have you observed about women who have “taken the plunge?”

Women come in with sweat pants the first day. The established dancers often come in costume, but new women don’t. They stand in the back. In a month, they are up front, pulling their shirts up over their bellies. They look in the mirror more. I love that! They learn a variety of steps. Then, they just put them together. They make the dance their own. So you went up the learning curve yourself, and now you are in a troupe. How did that happen? After I took every class I could get to, I saw they were accepting applications to join the Liquid Hip Therapy performance troupe. I was accepted and have been performing for almost two years. There are seven of us. It is a definite commitment; we dance many diverse styles with different costumes (which is great). We were just invited to dance with a St. Paul troupe called Afsana. They do a type of bellydancing called Tribal Fusion. Normally, we try to stay pretty local. How long do you see yourself continuing this? I have five grandkids, but I plan to do it forever. God willing and the creek don’t rise! So, If you hear a pair of zils ring, we’ll know another new bellydancer got her wings! Exactly!

Our Aging Best title

BY DICK ROGEN, DVM

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

I have lost a few good friends this last month. It brings some tears to my eyes and it reminds me of how long I have been practicing. Just like people, they all have their individual personalities. It reminds though, what a great impact pets can have on the lives of us humans. Old age happens to pets as well as people. I remember the small puppy or kitten that was introduced to me. Some of them were scraggly, thin or carried every parasite known. A few I recommended to be taken back. Oh how I was wrong with my initial assessment! I have watched them grow and mature. We live longer, so sadly I have watched them age. Arthritis is a major problem for both cats and dogs as they age. There are many new treatments available. Some are very simple such as Omega fatty acids, glucosamine and chondroitin. If it becomes worse, stronger medications called NSAID can help

greatly. We even use a human medicine called Tramadol if needed. Pets’ hearts also get old and weak. Once again, if treated correctly we can make their lives longer and more enjoyable. The same medications used in human medicine are given to your pets. Cancer of all types is also part of getting older as a pet. We use chemotherapy medications, surgery and radiation to hold these nasty diseases at bay. I am always amazed at the dignity and grace my cancer patients have during treatments. You have to appreciate the love people have for their pets to go to the expense of cancer treatments. Just as in people, we need to keep our pets healthy from the start and throughout their lives. Good nutrition, good preventative care and quick treatment of their ailments will help them live a long happy life. To see your pet grow as a young individual, hit middle age and then become a senior citizen is a great journey. I think

BEST FRIEND


Friends sometimes it is a fast forward view of what can happen in our own lives. We know that we live longer, if we have a pet. Maybe seeing them age with grace can give us a lesson in life. There are times when they are young, that it can be debatable. They start out with energy, mischief and a small dose of the devil in them. Who knows why they find chewing on electric cords or climbing the drapes fun. I also cannot explain why rolling in a pile of stink is a must as soon as we stop at the farm. But then there are times when you are sick, sad or just plain tired that they truly are your best friend. The companionship they provide is priceless. They do not judge you on your looks or age. They are perfectly satisfied with you, just the way you are. If you have a pet, you know what we are talking about. If you haven’t experienced a pet in your life, give it a chance. Some of my old friends have given buckets of kisses and smiles that can’t be bought in a store. They will not be forgotten.

Stonecutter John Elm BY LOREN H. AMUNDSON

A

Stonecutter John Elm Rural Brandon 1000 ft. north of the intersection of Hwy 11 and 266th St.

fter arriving in Dakota Territory, John Elm, of Swedish stock, met and in 1887 married Dina Mathison, a Norwegian immigrant. The couple lived in East Sioux Falls, a company town. A quarry company owned the entire town site, including the Elm home, and surrounding land, all with underlying deposits of Sioux quartzite. John was a stonecutter, a dangerous trade that required strength, precision, and a sixty-hour work week. Between 1888 and 1898, the couple became the parents of five children. Three months after the birth of Mabel, their only daughter,

Dina died of “child-bed fever” at the age of 40. Grieving over the unexpected loss of his wife, John died one year later at age 36. He and Dina rest side by side in unmarked graves in nearby Hokenson Cemetery. All five of the young Elm children were then taken in by other families to be raised. Dina’s DNA proven Hamre and Aker relatives took four of them: Oscar by Peder P. and Helena Aker, Victor by Elias and Synva Eide, Mathias by Aad and Aadina Hamre, and Mabel by Edward and Anna Peterson. Elmer was raised by Swedish quarryman Petter and Alma Petterson.

An East Sioux Falls Stonecutter There are no known photos of John Elm. Before the age of powered stonecutting machines, quarrymen worked solely with muscle-power and their understanding of where to strike a block of stone to split it in a clean line. Stonecutters usually were paid by the piece. Their income was considerably greater than the lesser-skilled quarrymen who were paid about $1.25 a day. Quarry work days and weeks were long, ten-hour days and sixday weeks, Monday through Saturday. Image owner: Center for Western Studies.

HISTORICAL MARKER

East Sioux Falls Stone Crusher Stone crushers were designed to reduce large rocks into smaller rocks of various sizes and rock dust. These became raw material to be used in construction projects such as bridges, buildings, railroad beds, and roads. Part of the foundation of the more than a century-old stone crusher still remains (2010). Image owner: Center for Western Studies.
