Country Apple title Orchard Opening Kicks Off the Fall Season by MAry Michaels


hile some of us may be sad to see the summer coming to an end, the Country Apple Orchard will keep the blues away with plenty of fall events to put a smile on your face. The Orchard, which is located just a few miles south of Sioux Falls on Minnesota Avenue, has approximately 6,000 trees with thirteen varieties of apples to satisfy all tastes. They also plant seven acres of pumpkins to get everyone ready for jack-o-lantern season. Opening day for the Orchard was August 27th, and they are already off to a busy start. “It’s exciting for us to know that there are people waiting for us to open for the season,” says Nancy Olson. “We are always so glad to see familiar faces come back each year, and we also look forward to greeting new guests that haven’t visited us before.” Olson adds that the Orchard will be open on Labor Day.

Coinciding with the harvest, which runs from mid-August through October, are several special events. The first big event is the Apple Festival, scheduled for September 17 - 18. The festival features activities such as horsedrawn hayrides and tractor wagon rides for people to pick their own apples, pony rides, inflatables, the children’s barn and face painting. For your sweet tooth, you’ll find homemade apple pies, caramel apples, Kettle Korn, and much more. Phil Baker will also be performing twice at this event. The next dates to mark on your calendar are October 1-2 for the Harvest Festival. Along with picking apples and pumpkins, you can meet Sneakers the live scarecrow, enjoy horse drawn hayrides, get a piece of pumpkin pie (or apple pie, of course) and have fun on this day out in the country. The South Dakota

Pumpkin Growers Association will also hold their Great South Dakota Weigh-Off at the festival. Come see the incredible 500-pound pumpkins! The fall season at the Country Apple Orchard winds down with the Pumpkin Festival on October 8-9. Once again, the Orchard will be buzzing with lots of activities, including horse-drawn hayrides out to the pumpkin patches. The haystack jumping area is also a big hit with the kids at the Orchard’s special events. Olson says the staff at the Country Apple Orchard enjoy these special events just as much as their customers do. “These events have become traditional Fall events for many families in the area,” she says. “In addition to the apple-picking and other activities, it is fun for us to have great treats for people to enjoy. Our caramel apples are the best. Last year, we started with 500 pounds of caramel and had to reorder during the season.”

Plastic Surgery Associates –

Personal Care in a Comfortable Environment by Mary Michaels | Photos by Chang Photography


lastic surgery has carried a stigma with it over the years, with many feeling that it is something only for Hollywood elite. However, plastic surgery offers both medical and cosmetic services to meet the needs of men and women of all ages. According to Marvin Smoot, practice manager at Plastic Surgery Associates, the term “plastic” is derived from the Greek word plastikos, which means “to mold or to change form.” “Our plastic and reconstructive surgeons deal with the overall appearance and function of the human body,” says Smoot. “Plastic surgery is an ever-changing field and we work to ensure we stay on top of new advances in the field.” Part of keeping things up-to-date included a move to a new Sioux Falls location, says Smoot. The practice relocated this summer to a building on South Minnesota Avenue. “We are so excited to be in this location,” Smoot explains. “So much of healthcare has become about the patients’ expectations and perceptions. Patients will find this clinic setting to be friendly, quiet and comfortable – as well as more accessible. We know that when patients walk in, they will see our attention to detail in the

10 out and about |


facility, and they can expect that same attention to detail in the care we provide.” Dr. L. Patrick Miller, Dr. Vaughn H. Meyer and Dr. J. Anthony Breit are all board certified in plastic surgery and offer services in the entire field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Plastic Surgery Associates opened in Sioux Falls in 1984, and in 1997, they opened a fully-staffed satellite clinic in Dakota Dunes, SD. Plastic Surgery Associates also provides outreach services at the Yankton Medical Clinic in Yankton and at the Mallard Pointe Surgical Center in Watertown. The surgeons are on staff at all Sioux Falls hospitals, the SiouxLand Surgery Center specialty hospital in Dakota Dunes, Avera Sacred Heart Hospital in Yankton, Mallard Pointe Surgical Center in Watertown and Prairie Lakes Hospital in Watertown. They also provide services in Spencer, IA. In addition to providing services in the clinic, the surgeons are available to provide emergency services at Sioux Falls hospitals for trauma situations. “We have been part of the community longer than any other

plastic surgery group,” says Smoot. “All of our physicians were born in South Dakota, which makes it very easy for patients to talk with them and feel like they have a physician who really knows them and cares about them.” When people talk about plastic surgery, it is natural to immediately think of such cosmetic procedures as BOTOX®, face lifts, liposuction or breast augmentation. While Plastic Surgery Associates does offer these and other cosmetic services, they are also a medical clinic that provides cleft lip repair, treatment for skin cancers and breast reconstruction following a woman’s treatment for breast cancer. Whether it is a medical or a cosmetic procedure, Smoot says the physicians take the time to talk with a patient to listen to what the patient wants but also to discuss what is the right procedure for a patient.

“Sometimes patients think they want one procedure when actually there might be a better treatment available for them. That is why it is so important for individuals to come in for a consultation first. We can listen to their story and determine how we can best meet their needs.” Cosmetic procedures often have a purpose that goes beneath the person’s appearance, explains Smoot. Someone who is self-conscious about their body shape, breast size or a facial feature may have difficulty asserting themselves in workplace or social settings, making it difficult for them to succeed in job interviews or in personal relationships. “Whether we are performing a cosmetic procedure to boost a person’s self-confidence or performing breast reconstruction on a woman who has survived breast cancer, our goal is to make that person whole again, both physically and emotionally,” says Smoot. Plastic Surgery Associates also offers their own medicalgrade skin care products. “As the most exposed part of your body, your face is vulnerable to the destructive rays of the sun, acne, rashes, allergic reactions and a whole range of injuries and incidents that can leave visible permanent scars,” Smoot explains. “Our skin care line is formulated for all skin types. Each product is developed to benefit the individual skin type with minimal steps in a person’s daily routine.” Smoot explains how the new location improves access to their services and products. “Before, we were on an upper level of a medical building, and it was a little hard to get to us. Now, we have easy access where people can drive right up to the clinic. All of our staff members are trained on the skin care products, and people can experience better service and get a better quality product at the same price as a major department store.” Plastic Surgery Associates accepts all major insurance and also has programs available that help patients finance procedures not covered by insurance. The clinic has a specialist with more than 20 years of experience with insurance and financing available that can help patients navigate the billing and payment process. “I feel lucky to work here,” says Smoot. “Our physicians and staff are second to none, and they are completely committed to providing excellent, confidential, personalized care to meet each patient’s needs.

Pretty in Pink The Kelly Kirby Home by Dianne Erdmann I Photos by Chang Photography


he jury is in; “pretty in pink” was never as true as in attorney Kelly Kirby’s stylish Sioux Falls home. Step in and you are wrapped in a space that is soft, chic, and feminine. “This is my first home, and I’m young, so I wanted to fulfill all my girlish fantasies,” says Kelly, who lives there with her Pomeranian, Percy. “My inspiration was actress, Molly Sims’ New York apartment.” Kelly says, “That is the cutest apartment I’ve ever seen.” She smiles. “So, I went on the hunt for gray, black, some pink, and a little fuchsia; fun, with a kind of an antique French look.”

In the living room, above the dove gray sofa, are framed, Parisian style drawings of Barbie — that perfect touch of whimsy. With the sophisticated palette, you get the girly French feel, without it becoming too sweet or cutesy. The crisp white fabrics, and carefully-elected glass and pink accents, keep the mood light and airy. A jaw-dropping crystal chandelier is a focal point above the dining table. It sparkles with clear and pastel crystals and exquisite miniature fruits. “When I bought the home I had no furniture at all,” Kelly says.

“I worked with Mary Carol Garrity of Nell Hill’s in Kansas City. I needed to fill the house on a budget, and the store is very affordable. Their furniture looks antique, without the cost.” The window treatments in Kelly’s home are bold and elegant. Kelly explains, “I worked with Ann Hanson and Sara Larson from Twetten’s on the curtains. I wanted something

They helped me so much to find just the right things, in just the right colors.” One outstanding color is Chelsea Gray, found on many of the walls. “It is hard to find just the right gray for it to look right.

No detail is missed, down to the crystal brooch-like handles from Anthropologie. “One big thing I really wanted when I moved into my house after living in cramped apartments was a dressing room,” Kelly says of a room devoted to that purpose.

Enough with the Vampires Already! By Jim Mathis


f there is one thing I know about vampires, it’s how to keep them away. After all, I’ve been on this earth for almost a half a century and I’ve never even been threatened by a vampire. Not once. Are vampires around? Well you can’t swing a cat now days without seeing a vampire book on the best-seller list or a vampire movie without lines around the block. And these pesky critters have been around for a long time. Bram Stoker wrote about the famous Count Dracula over 100 years ago. And they are still making headlines

“If it’s worth turning on the stove to cook, it’s worth putting in a little garlic.” today. Damn vampires. But here’s the truth about vampires. (Spoiler alert! If you love the vampire fantasy, skip this paragraph and get to the section about garlic.) The truth is the idea of vampires seems to coincide with outbreaks of rabies in Eastern Europe. And researches believe that many of the traits associated with vampires can be explained by the effects of rabies. Men with the disease tend to be very sensitive to bright lights, odors and even their own reflection. Sound familiar? The whole nocturnal thing? Rabies effects the parts of the brain that help regulate sleep cycles. And one more thing, the disease makes people “hypersexual” with historic literature reporting cases of rabid patients who “practiced intercourse up to 30 times in a day.” Sounds a lot like those Twilight movies, doesn’t it? But I know how to ward off vampires; garlic! It’s just that simple. It’s in the lore; wear a few cloves the stinky rose around your neck and you’re safe. Obviously, my dear sweet mother

40 nest | Man in the kitchen

knew this too and was concerned about her family. For as long as I can remember, my mom has said, “if it’s worth turning on the stove to cook, it’s worth putting in a little garlic.” Clearly, she was protecting us from the vampire threat. There are two consequences of the wonderful consuming of huge amounts of garlic since I was a kid; I’m naturally immune to vampires and I really love the stuff today. So why write about garlic now, in September? Because now is the time to buy it. The farmer’s markets have lots of fresh garlic in many types. Usually the first to appear around here are soft stemmed kinds that store very well. Whole dried bulbs of these varieties will last for 6 to 7 months if you keep them in a cool, dry, dark place with decent air circulation. And towards the end of the season you may also see garlic braids for sale. They look great and with a little care should last through the winter. Hard-neck garlics give us garlic scapes in the late spring and early summer. Scapes are the twisty green tops of the garlic

“And if you’re worried about garlic breath, make sure your loved one eats the same stuff and no one will care.” plant and you can use them like you would garlic until the big bulbs arrive. But by mid-September you’ll start to see hard-neck garlic at the market. These are my favorite with large cloves and a big, full flavor. Unfortunately the thin skin makes them a little less hardy and they don’t keep as long, so I just have to eat it now. Garlic often plays a supporting role in dishes, adding a little kick or depth of flavor to many of your favorite meals, but it can also be the star. Once on a hunting trip to southern Louisiana, the cook presented his “famous cream of garlic soup.” When a few of my fellow hunters turned up their noses, I grabbed a spoon. It was rich and smooth, tasting not like the harsh raw garlic you might be thinking of, but rather the fragrant, warm and nutty flavor of roasted garlic. I ate two bowls, at least. To truly enjoy garlic on its own, try roasting a few bulbs. Simply cut off the top of a whole bulb and drizzle with a little olive oil. Wrap it loosely in aluminum foil and pop it in the

oven at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. It should be soft and golden brown. When it comes out, let it cool a bit then squeeze out a clove and spread it on a piece of bread. Or stir some into mashed potatoes, pasta, rice or just about anything. Yummy. And if you’re worried about garlic breath, make sure your loved one eats the same stuff and no one will care. And I’m not sure anything can showcase the beauty of fresh garlic quite like an aioli. Aioli is simply a garlic mayonnaise. But don’t just put garlic in a jar of Hellman’s; make your own from scratch. It’s really easier than you’d think. Start with one egg yolk (if you’re worried about the raw egg thing, you can buy pasteurized eggs), 2 or 3 cloves of grated garlic (depending on size), the juice of half a lemon and a big pinch of salt. Whiz all of this up in a food processor and slowly add about a half cup each of olive oil and vegetable oil. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so before you eat and the garlic flavor will really start to bloom. It’s great on sandwiches, seafood or just roasted veggies.

etc. for her | September 2011 41

Linguini with Clam Sauce One of the first dishes I ever learned to cook was linguini with clam sauce (or as my Dad lovingly calls it “clam shit”) and it is a dish where garlic shines. I’ve seen many versions of this recipe, but this is my mother’s with a little twist from me.

1 pound linguini 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 6-8 cloves garlic, chopped 1/2 cup dry white wine

1 (15-ounce) can whole baby clams, with their juice 2 (8-ounce) jars clam juice 1 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil on medium and sauté the garlic for a few minutes until it begins to soften (but make sure it doesn’t burn.) Add the wine and the clam juice and the liquid from the canned clams and let it reduce to about a 1/4 cup of liquid. Meanwhile, cook the pasta to al dente (or a little less as it will cook some more with the sauce. Add the clams, the parsley and drained pasta to the skillet and toss to coat. Let it cook for about 2 to 3 minutes to warm the clams through. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. That’s it, it’s ready to serve.

In addition to the flavor garlic adds to so many dishes, it has been shown to lower your cholesterol, so it’s good for you, too. (Although I don’t think the aioli would fit that description.) So here’s the bottom line, a little garlic is healthy and it’s all we need to keep those pesky vampires away. Think of it as a really tasty immunization. While you’re at it, you know they used to

There is so much technology out there that is aiding the wine world that it’s almost too easy to find out everything you ever wanted to know about any wine you’re interested in.

Applications like Vinopad and Uncorkd are enabling restaurateurs to put their traditional wine lists, typically in beautiful leather-bound holders, onto iPads. I like to think of myself as a traditionalist, e.g. I love using a traditional wine key to pull a cork and am not a huge fan of Stelvin closures (screw caps;) however, putting my wine list on an iPad is definitely on my wish list. To be able to present a wine list in high definition quality, along with the vintage, reviews, geographical sourcing of grapes, amount of wood aging, what type of oak is used, what type of blending is used, etc., is as exciting to me as it is to wine patrons.

jumped by 11 percent per diner in the two weeks following the iPads’ introduction, compared with the previous three weeks.” Modern technology has impinged on wine making for years, often to traditionalists’ dismay. For instance, automatic grape presses met with skepticism, at least before vintners grasped that they are superior to human feet in just about every way. However, the retail end of the business has been largely immune to innovation. Although some establishments embraced the interactive wine list as early as 2001, most have stuck to the familiar sommelier/ restaurant manager wine selection method. Enter another nifty recent piece of technology: the wine dispensing system, produced by companies like Cruvinet or Enomatic. These are cabinets which hold anywhere between 4 and 120 bottles that, once opened, are topped up with inert gases like nitrogen or argon to keep the oxygen out. An improvement on the manual vacuum pump found in many households, the swanky dispensers help keep wine fresh for up to several weeks, though some sommeliers contend that no amount of nitrogen will protect an older wine. (Apparently, Pinot Noirs are especially vulnerable to oxygen’s perfidious ways.) When it comes to wine and technology, the amount of information we have at our fingertips is limitless. Wineries are publishing more and more technical information (not to mention their websites are getting more and more creative and user-friendly) which makes it both easy and fun to research wines you are looking to buy, drink, or collect. Check out some of my favorite winery websites: Coppola wines at www.franciscoppolawinery.com present their portfolio on a beautiful web page that is easy to navigate. Bonny Doon wines at www.bonnydoonvineyard. com is probably one of the most creative and visuallystunning websites out there, and Chimney Rock wines at www.chimneyrock.com gives you technical information about their award-winning cabernets, blends, and fumé blanc in a very concise manner. Here’s the bottom line: wine is good, and the wine tasting experience can be even better with the help of technology. From the way wines are made to the way you select a bottle of wine on a wine list, a little technology goes a long way. Embrace the technology revolution and enjoy wine in the 21st century.

Become a Breakfast Person By Amanda Day of Pomegranate Market


recent study by the International Food Information Council Foundation found that 93 percent of Americans agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet only 44 percent of those surveyed actually eat it. Why is this? There are excuses galore to defend skipping breakfast - “I don’t have time!”, “I might gain weight”, “I’m not hungry” - but it may be time leave those excuses under the pillow, and allow yourself to benefit from taking the extra few minutes each morning to start your day off with a healthy meal. Admittedly, I’m not a fan of breakfast - nor am I a morning person, which could very well be related, but this doesn’t seem a good enough of excuse for not

eating a little something on my way out the door each day. The research linking breakfast to good health seems endless - many studies prove that breakfast not only gives you that extra boost to get the day off on the right foot, but also can help prevent disease. Imagine that - one meal can help ward off (and control) type-2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and even weight-gain. Some anti-breakfast-folk have the mentality that if they’re trying to lose a few extra pounds, skipping breakfast will be a good way to do that, but this isn’t true...at all. Eating a breakfast containing whole grains, fiber and protein will jump-start the metabolism and set the pace for how the body digests food for the rest of the day. Breakfast is like a cold shower for the metabolism - if the metabolism doesn’t get that little shock to wake up in the morning, it will drag. Not only will your metabolism suffer from opting out of breakfast, but your mind will work at a slower rate and you will not be as productive as you could be had you grabbed a granola bar to eat on the commute to work. A website aimed at childhood nutrition states that “it is better to eat anything for breakfast than to eat nothing at all” - that

means, go ahead, eat that left over slice of pizza for breakfast, because it’s better than starting off the day on an empty stomach. Yes, obviously, this is not the most healthy option when you look at all of the other varieties of breakfast one could consume. Mayoclinic.com suggests eating a breakfast containing whole grains, protein, fruits and vegetables. Go for something low in fat and sugar and high in fiber. Fiber is important for proper digestion, cholesterol, blood sugar and much more, and breakfast is a great time to get a good healthy dose of it. The recommended daily intake of fiber for adults is 20 to 35 grams. If you consider that approximately one cup of oatmeal, half a cup of blueberries and a few tablespoons of almonds equal almost 13 grams of fiber, then it becomes clear that in just one meal, breakfast, one can consume about half of the fiber needed for an entire day! Picture a warm bowl of oatmeal with blueberries, slivered almonds, perhaps some cinnamon and a little sprinkle of sugar on a cool autumn morning...that sounds enticing to me and up until researching for this article, I wanted nothing to do with breakfast. Also good to incorporate into the most important meal of the day is protein, as it helps with tissue repair throughout the

body and is important for bone, muscle, skin and blood health. One may think, “Protein...like sausage and bacon? I’m in!”... put the pork products on hold for now (thought they really are quite delicious, aren’t they?) and consider all of the other great protein-dense, low-fat options for breakfast. The recommended daily intake of protein for adults is between 65 and 80 grams, depending upon activity levels. One egg contains 6 grams of protein, and many dairy products are fairly low in fat and high in protein. Think about a half cup of fat-free yogurt with some a few tablespoons of granola and a couple of tablespoons of sliced almonds - crispy, slightly sweet and satisfying - contains 16 grams of protein, which is a great start toward achieving that recommended amount for the day. The American Heart Association recommends having a bowl of whole grain cereal for breakfast, and other research agrees that whole grains are great to eat early in the morning, as the body takes more time to digest them, resulting in fewer hunger pangs and cravings before lunch time, which keeps you focused on work or school. Consuming whole grains when you’re in a rush is pretty simple, especially with all of the granola and protein bars available today. Stash a few bars in the glove box for those

mornings when you’re running behind schedule and do not have time to make oatmeal or toast some bread and cook an egg. Be sure the granola or protein bar is low in sugar (preferably free of high fructose corn syrup), as starting the day with sugar can cause you to crave it. Also, see that the bar has fairly high amounts of protein to help tide you over until lunch time. Some good protein bars come from brands like, Luna, Odwalla, ProBar and Cliff, and are sold at most grocery stores, but especially health-food-focused establishments. Now, sit back and ponder how your body can function each day if you’re missing very important doses of protein, fiber and other nutrients...it really can’t. There will always be enough time to nourish your body, and it is important to do so. No longer should you make excuses for feeling like you’re lugging your body and brain around all morning. All it takes is some effort and perhaps a bit of planning to get your day off to an energized, healthy start and you will find yourself reaping the benefits of breakfast for hours and even years to follow.

Vermont is named after the Green Mountains, with the French Verts Monts literally translated as Green Mountains. Some of the oldest mountains in New England, the Green Mountains are a year-round destination. Located right in the heart of Vermont’s Green Mountains is Smuggler’s Notch Resort, surrounded by over 3,000 acres of forests and streams. This is also home to the ArborTrek Canopy Tour, which is the first of its kind in Vermont and it provides an experience you won’t soon forget. The Zip Line Canopy Tour lasting up to 3 hours allows you to soar down more than 4,500 feet of zip lines and cross sky bridges through mature stands of

hemlock, white birch, and sugar maple trees. Nestled high in the forest canopy, visitors enjoy stunning views of Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s Green Mountains, and Smuggler’s Notch Resort. There are a few options of guided adventures available, including Arbor’s Wild Ride, with 8 zip lines, 2 sky bridges, and 2 rappels, Arbor’s Express, which is open to groups of 20 or more and is for those seeking high thrills, and a variety of options for groups. One of the best ways to explore the state of Vermont is to escape the highways and interstates and discover the secondary scenic roads.

young. There are six designated byways in Vermont that offer information to help you make the best of your visit, ranging from 30 miles to over 400 miles in length. Along these scenic routes are many side excursions, including biking, hiking, and ski trails, camping and picnic sites, shopping, canoe and kayak options, and swimming holes. Not to mention the beautiful scenery. Vermont’s foliage season typically begins early or mid-September when full color starts in the north and moves south during the month of October. Stay at one of the many charming and romantic country inns while in Vermont in any of the quaint little towns, including Stowe and Montgomery. Be sure to make plans to visit some of the best wineries, breweries, and cideries in the country as well. Mead, a wine made from honey, is produced at Artesano Meadery in Vermont from pure, raw Vermont honey and locally grown fruit. Visit the meadery tasting room to discover this very interesting beverage, which is the oldest and most revered fermented beverage to mankind. In addition to the tours of beverage making bliss, many diners, cafes, fruit and vegetable stands, apple orchards, and antique shops line the roads for tourist entertainment at its finest. There are also three dozen cheese making members of the Vermont Cheese Council, producing over 150 varieties of specialty award-winning cheeses available at one of many farmer’s markets throughout the state of Vermont. While in this gorgeous state, many like to visit Quechee State Park, located along US Route 4 and nearby many Upper-Valley attractions. The breathtaking views of the


Quechee Gorge, which is Vermont’s deepest gorge formed by glaciers nearly 13,000 years ago, keep visitors in awe and encourages many to make their stay a longer one. For this reason, there are several spacious campsites to call home. The beautiful Ottauquechee River flows 165 feet below several scenic points along Route 4 as well. The Backroad Discovery Tours is a guided tour service based in Manchester, Vermont. This tour service offers Vermont Fall Foliage tours, Revolutionary & Civil War tours, Vermont Sampler tours, and early spring Vermont Maple Sugaring tours. Discover Vermont’s beauty and history with fun facts and up-close views of the mountain and valley vistas full of color at this time of year. The town of Manchester has also long been known as the best skiing and shopping village in the East, offering world-class experiences and accommodations for guests. One of the most popular attractions in Vermont is Ben & Jerry’s Factory Tour. The 30-minute guided tours are a great educational activity for the whole family. See how the ice cream is produced, then finish with a sample of the day. Be sure to visit the flavor graveyard and take time to read the poems eulogizing the goofy flavors that are no longer with us. Vermont is truly a magical place, with all four seasons providing endless opportunities for adventure and discovery. With an extraordinary view of Fall foliage from the panorama of the hillsides, mountains, lakes and woods, it is a wonderful place to take advantage of this country’s majestic Fall colors.

ou have breast cancer.” These are four words no woman ever wants to hear from her physician. A woman’s lifetime risk for breast cancer is 1 in 8. Risk factors for the disease include age, family history, dense breast tissue, weight, activity levels and alcohol use. Up to 80% of women who get breast cancer do not have a family history of the disease – making routine mammograms an important screening tool for breast care.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Breast Cancer? In its early stages, breast cancer usually has no symptoms. Signs and symptoms of breast cancer include the following: • A lump in the breast or underarm that persists after your menstrual cycle. Lumps are usually visible on a mammogram long before they can be seen or felt. It is important to have anything unusual checked by a doctor. • Swelling in the armpit. • Breast pain. • A noticeable flattening or indentation on the breast. • Any change in the size, contour, texture or temperature of

the breast. • A change in the nipple, such as an inward drawn or dimpled look, redness, pain, itching or burning sensation. • Nipple discharge other than breast milk.

Screening Recommendations Breast cancer can strike at any age and women should be aware of their personal risk factors for breast cancer. If you want to increase your odds of early detection, the following guidelines from the American Cancer Society are recommended: • Mammogram: Women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year and should keep on

doing so for as long as they are in good health. • Clinical breast exam: Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam (CBE) as part of a regular exam by a health professional at least every 3 years. After age 40, women should have a breast exam by a health professional every year. • Breast awareness: Women should be aware of how their breasts normally look and feel and report any changes to a doctor right away. Finding a change does not mean that you have cancer. “Screening tests (such as yearly mammograms) should be given for women who appear to be healthy and are not suspected of having breast cancer. The purpose is to find breast cancer early, before any symptoms can develop and provide more treatment options,” says Alison Wierda Suttle, MD, Sanford Clinic Women’s Health.

A mammogram is a low dose x-ray of the breast. A screening mammogram is used to look for breast disease in women who do not seem to have breast problems. A mammogram can also be used when women have symptoms such as a lump, skin change, or nipple discharge. This is called a diagnostic mammogram. Diagnostic mammograms are also used to follow-up abnormal screening mammograms. 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. Ann Hamilton schedules her mammogram every year. In 2010, she scheduled her mammogram and anticipated the same results as in years past. This time the results were different. “Going in for my mammogram saved my life; early detection can provide a cure,” says Ann. “By regularly examining your breasts, you will become more aware of how your breasts should normally look and feel. You will be more likely to notice irregular changes which could be early signs of cancer. If you see or feel a change in your breasts, then see your doctor immediately,” says Alison Wierda Suttle, MD, Sanford Clinic Women’s Health. Ann says, “I believe I’m here today because of early detection. It is just another reason why I continue on with my yearly screenings.”

eptember is the season for apples. They are delicious and nutritious, and can be so much fun! There are hundreds of varieties of apples, and they can be used to make several tasty treats. This fall, your kids can discover how different apples taste when they are eaten raw, baked, or simmered. They can also have tons of fun when making apple crafts and using their creativity to make the best of this popular fruit.

Have a blind taste test. Take a trip to the apple orchard or the grocery store with the whole family, and choose a variety of different kinds of apples. Take them home and cut them up, putting each flavor on a different plate. Blindfold each family member and have them try the apples, naming which kind they like the best. Make a chart to discover which kind of apple wins as your family’s favorite. You can also do this with different flavors of applesauce and apple cider versus juice.

Younger children will be delighted to make their own apple art. Cut an apple horizontally through the middle to help your child find the “star” in the middle of the apple core. You can also experiment with your apples by cutting them in a variety of ways. Fold a paper towel into fourths and lay it on a styrofoam plate. Pour your paint into the center of the folded paper towel, creating a stamping pad. Then, dip cut side of the sliced apple in the paint, making sure there isn’t too much excess to prevent dripping. Finally, press the apple onto a piece of construction paper to make an apple print. You can also use fabric paint to make apple print kitchen towels, aprons, shirts, etc. Go one step further and use the colors of the different kinds of apples to teach your child while having fun at the same time.

Your kids will be very entertained when their doll’s head shrivels up into what resembles a crabby old lady. Choose a bigger apple for the head, keeping in mind that it will eventually shrink to about two thirds its original size. Peel and core the apple, carving a face on one side and using your choice of tool to hollow out a pair of deeply set eyes and create a mouth. Get creative and choose your apple doll’s mood, giving it a smile or a frown. For the nose, cut a triangle into the apple, and finish off by adding any extra facial features, including wrinkles, ears, dimples, and anything else your child can think of. Then, store the apple in a dry spot until it shrinks, or use a dehydrator to speed up the process, as it usually takes about two weeks to dry. Once the head is completely dry, have your child use markers or water-based paints to enhance the face, giving

To make a body for the apple doll, take a plastic bottle and cut off the base. Wrap fabric around the body of the bottle so it extends beyond both the top and the bottom. Secure with a rubber band around the bottleneck and fold the cloth down, tucking the extra cloth at the base into the bottle. Plug the top of the bottle with a cork to serve as the doll’s neck. Push the cored apple head into the cork to create your finished apple doll.

Give a gummy worm surprise. Finding a worm in your apple is never a good sign. Unless you happen to be a kid finding a yummy gummy worm inside your lunchtime apple. Use an apple corer to core a hole through the apple. You can leave the worm coming out of the side or now there should now be a hiding spot for your gummy worm in the center of the apple. Stick the worm into the center of the apple and create a fun lunchtime treat.

Studies show that over 85 percent of child safety seats are not installed properly.


tudies show that over 85 percent of child safety seats are not installed properly. So chances are, your child is not getting the greatest possible safety benefit from the car seat that you’re trusting to keep him safe in the event of an accident. Jeanne Bietz, Car Seat Program coordinator for Avera Children’s Hospital, says parents may assume they know how to correctly install a car seat without carefully following the owner’s manuals. “Plus, instructions and terminology can be confusing.” She says a quick demonstration may be worth a thousand written words when it comes to installing a car seat. One common error is not adjusting harness straps so that they are snug, and that the chest clip is at the child’s armpit level. Also, it’s common not to secure the car seat tightly enough

with the seatbelt or LATCH system. “The car seat should be secured so tightly that it does not move an inch from side to side or from front to back,” Bietz said. LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) can be found in most vehicles past the model year 2003. If used correctly, LATCH and seatbelts are equally safe, Bietz added. The American Academy of Pediatrics recently issued new recommendations for car seat use. These recommendations are based on what’s safest for the child, rather than state laws. “If you adhere to these guidelines, you will meet or exceed child safety restraint laws in all states,” Bietz said. The AAP guidelines basically advise parents to take advantage of all the safety features their car seat offers, for as long as

possible. For example, if your car seat’s label says it can be rear facing for up to 35 pounds, keep the seat in the rear-facing position as long as possible. “Children under age 2 are 75 percent less likely to die or be severely injured in a crash if they are riding rear-facing,” Bietz said. Parents are often concerned if their child has to bend or fold their legs when they grow bigger. “But statistics show that rearfacing is safer for the head, neck and spine, as well as the legs,” Bietz said. Guidelines advise keeping children in a booster seat for as long as possible – at least until age 8 and up to age 12, depending on height and weight. “Some boosters are for children up to 100 pounds. If it goes up that far, use it until your child is 100 pounds,” Bietz said. “A child should be in a booster seat until he or she is big enough to wear a seat belt properly,” she added. Children ages 4-8 who use boosters are 45 percent less likely to be injured compared to children of similar age who use vehicle seat belts. Without a booster seat, children tend to slouch in the seat so they can bend their legs. When they’re slouching down in the seat, a vehicle lap belt is likely to be in contact with the soft belly area, rather than the bony hip structure, creating greater chance for injury. Also, the shoulder belt is more likely to go across the child’s neck rather than the shoulder. Children age 12 or under should always ride in the back seat. For children in car seats, the middle of the seat is actually the safest position, as they can’t take a direct hit in a crash. In shopping for car seats, avoid buying second-hand seats that you don’t have a history on. “They may have been in an accident,” Bietz said. Also, most seats expire after six years, due to constantly advancing technology. When shopping for a car seat, take time to read the label to see if it’s appropriate for your child, and if possible, take your child along to the store to find a seat that fits well. The more adjustments the seat has, the more likely it will fit your child for a longer period of time, Bietz added. Avera Children’s Hospital offers free car seat checks to assess if car seats are installed properly, and provides demonstrations and instructions on how to correctly install the car seat. The sessions take only about 30 minutes, and can help ensure that your child stays safe in a crash. To schedule a free session, call 322-3485. Local government agencies also offer periodic car seat checkups. For more parenting tips and resources, go to www.AveraChildrens.org

Passing the Music Down by Sarah Sullivan A young boy travels to the hills of Appalachia to meet the old-time fiddle player whose music he has admired, and so sparks a friendship that will forge a bond between generations. The boy develops under the man’s care and instruction, just as seedlings grow with spring rain and summer sun. From playing on the front porch to performing at folk festivals, the two carry on the tradition of passing the music down. This touching, lyrical story, inspired by the lives of renowned fiddlers Melvin Wine and Jake Krack, includes an author’s note and suggested resources for learning about the musicians and the music they love.

A Little Bitty Man and Other Poems for the Very Young by Marilyn Nelson & Pamela Espeland Translated from the original works of beloved Danish poet Halfdan Rasmussen, this delightful collection of poems for young children will enthrall little ones with captivating rhyme, rhythm, humor, and charm. Kevin Hawkes’s enchanting, light-filled illustrations bring the text to life, making this an essential addition to any child’s library of modern classics. Ages 2 yrs - 6 yrs Candlewick Press Lady Liberty: A Biography by Doreen Rappaport It begins in 1865 as a romantic idea, but ten years later Édouard Laboulaye’s dream catches fire. Sculptor Auguste Bartholdi gives the dream the form of a lady, holding a torch to “enlighten the world.” Engineers, plasterers, carpenters, and coppersmiths work together to turn the lady into a monument more than 100 feet tall. Joseph Pulitzer calls on readers to help fund a pedestal, and hundreds send in nickels, dimes, and even roosters for the cause. Doreen Rappaport’s poetic vignettes and Matt Tavares’s magnificent images remind us of the origins of a national symbol - and show that it took a lot of people to make the Lady.

Mercy Watson: Something Wonky This Way Comes by Kate DiCamillo Some may find it wonky to take a pig to the drive-in. But not the Watsons, who think the movie’s title, When Pigs Fly, is inspirational. And not their beloved Mercy, who is inspired by the scent of real butter from the theater’s Bottomless Buckets of popcorn. As they pull up in their convertible, Mercy lifts up her snout and becomes a pig on a mission, leading a delirious chase that’s trailed by hapless rescuers reunited from Mercy’s earlier adventures.

Leadership in Faith

by John Nichols


t’s been nearly 40 years since the Lutheran church began ordaining women as ministers. In that time, the concept of women in the clergy has evolved from controversial headline maker to non-issue acceptance within the church. Today ministers like Rev. Heidi Binstock of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls are integral parts of their faith community. A native of Beresford and graduate of Augustana College, Binstock is the Pastor of Outreach and Family Life at Our Saviors. She is also married and has two young children. We talked with Rev. Binstock about her work, her family, and her experiences as a woman in the clergy.

At what point in your life did you first consider going into the ministry? Rev. Heidi Binstock: During college, I worked as a camp counselor for an organization called Lutherans Outdoors at the Atlantic Mountain Ranch site. It was there that I first discovered a passion for leading worship and talking to people about their relationship with God. While I was there, I had a friend who was considering seminary, and to be honest, initially I thought they were crazy. ‘Why would anyone want to do that?’ But I think it put the seed in my mind. About a year or two out of school, I began to consider it seriously.

Was there any one thing that helped you decide? There were many factors but there was one thing that was pretty influential. While I was doing some volunteer work after college, I got to work with a woman pastor and to that point I hadn’t had that experience very often. Having her as a mentor helped me picture what my role could be within the church and enabled me to answer my calling.

Many professional women struggle with work/life balance. Being in the clergy is probably no different. How do you balance your time? It can be a struggle but the advantage of a church is that it is a family place. For a lot of the things I do, my family can be present and we can take part together. My husband might sometimes say differently as he struggles to keep our kids occupied and quiet during church, but for a lot of our events we can make it family time. One other thing is that my schedule can be very different week to week. Sometimes that allows me to be there for things other parents might not be able to attend, but it can also mean I have to miss some other events. It is a balance and like all other women, I try very hard to strike the right balance.

What is the most rewarding part of your job? To me, it is Sunday morning when we gather together to hear God’s word as individuals and a community. That experience is very powerful and incredibly humbling. When you look out and you see the faces of the people you know embracing it, the Word becomes quite personal. Seeing it through their eyes helps deepen my understanding of our faith.

What is the most challenging aspect of your job? I find it challenging when there are things that distract us from the real ministry. For example, there are administrative parts of the job that are completely necessary but maybe not as rewarding as working within the faith. I think most people can relate to that. One other challenge is that there are a lot of interruptions. You may have a list of things esch004_mag_campaign5_p.indd 1

you wanted to get done on a particular day, but that list is abandoned immediately if someone needs you. Don’t get me wrong; our job is to be there for people when they needs us. I’m just saying it’s better for me to write out my schedule in pencil instead of pen, because I never know for sure where the day will take me.

There are a lot of intelligent, good people who either struggle with their faith or don’t believe in God. What do you say to people who have that conversation with you? My view of faith isn’t that it is something that needs to be proven or disproven. For me the bible isn’t proof of God, it reveals God. People want explanations but how can you explain faith? How can you explain falling in love? How can you explain any of the wondrous things that we experience everyday? These things are beyond our comprehension, but in them, and in their appreciation, I think you can see God’s presence in the world.

Leadership as a pastor can mean many things. What does it mean to you? Leadership to me is to speak God’s word in a way that engages people and connects to their everyday life. I am a Pastor, but I’m a sinner just like everybody else. I’m not perfect and in no way

would I ever want to give the impression that I am. Leadership comes from realizing your humanity but always striving to do better with God’s help.

Being a minister is a career in public speaking. That can be terrifying for most people. Do ministers get stage fright? Absolutely! Early on in my ministry, I used to not eat or sleep well before a service. I used to have this vision of me laying face down in front of the pulpit crying, ‘I don’t think I can do this!’ But with experience, you become more comfortable and it gets easier. I’ll still get butterflies if I’m in a different church or setting, but I find that they go away pretty quickly now and I can concentrate on the message.

What’s a perfect day for Pastor Binstock? On Sunday, it means a full and bustling church with good preaching, music that connects, and making a contribution to that bond of fellowship and community. A perfect family day for me is one where I get to be with my husband and kids. Probably out on the lake somewhere...

Enjoying one of those unexplainable wonders? (smiles) Exactly.

Back to School Stress by Dick Rogen, DVM Horizon Pet Care, 1224 E. Holly Blvd., Brandon, SD (605) 582.8445


t’s that time of year again, the kids are back in school. While this may be a relief for parents, but it can be stressful for the pets. Dogs and cats love schedules, but they also love attention and activity. Any sudden change in schedules can play some serious mind games with our pets. They are used to having stimulation, freedom and treats. Piper has had her way all summer and suddenly its 8 hours of alone time and then at night we are running to school activities. She has all of that energy and nowhere to blow it off. Dogs will exhibit anxiety and personality changes when life changes occur. The more subtle changes may be panting, pacing or anxiety when you are home. They may have all of this excitement that the family is finally home, but now they’re tired and no one wants to play for 2 hours. Piper decides she should grab shoes, towels and anything else to irritate me just to get attention during these times. We also can see some self destructive behavior during these times. Chewing up the couch, dining room chairs or your favorite shoes can occur. They are anxious and have too much time on their paws, so they look for ways to alleviate the stress. We also see Acral Lick Granulomas ( “Lick Sores”) on the legs. Some of us chew our fingernails when we are nervous and dogs will lick flat sores on their legs during these stressful times. Cats are less subtle when they are unhappy about life and

its changes. You will often see them waking you up at night, vocalizing at you when you return home or worse. Often urinating or defacating out of the box is a sign of an unhappy cat. Now a nice note on the refrigerator would be less offensive, they still use this flag to tell us life is not good. To counteract these problems, we need to put out some effort. It is important that we put some time aside to walk or play with our pets during a stressful period. Physical activity and “wearing them out” is often the only medicine needed to make things better. Make sure they have time to eat and interact before you go to work. It does not require a 5 mile power walk, but enough time to get their business done and eat. I also do not make a big deal out of leaving. Too much excitement prior to leaving can make the isolation worse. Leave on a radio or TV while you’re gone and provide a new toy to play with. When you do get home, exercise or play with them at least 30 minutes prior to bedtime. If possible take them with you to the ballgames or evening activities. Momo the housecat is a different story. He needs quiet oneon-one petting and grooming. Royalty has its benefits and he just wants a few quiet moments alone with his human servants. A new toy, some catnip and a snack before bedtime also calms the wild inner beast in Momo. Back to school and schedules can be a relief for us and our pets, but keep a close eye on them for behavior changes. Lace up your shoes and get those pets some exercise.

Sherman Park Indian Burial Mounds By Bruce BlaKe

Sherman Park Indian Burial Mounds Sherman Park, Sioux Falls


n these mounds were buried the physical remains of Indians who lived in Eastern South Dakota 1600 years ago. Radiocarbon testing established the time of the burials. Known to archeologists as the Woodland Indians, they moved westward from the eastern forests, changing from deer hunting to the pursuit of buffalo on the vast Da kota grasslands. As hunters they lived in temporary shelters but left these mounds as permanent monuments to their dead. Later Dacotah and other Indians roamed this area, also burying their dead in these same mounds.

In 1962 the University of South Dakota excavated the second mound from the east. In it were found the skeletons of four Woodland Indians and a later adult burial. Also found was the skeleton of a horse, probably buried within the last 100 years. Fragments of cooking pots were scat tered among the remains of the Woodland Indians. Only the skulls and large bones of the Wood land Indians were buried. As was custom with many of the Plains Indians, the dead were first laid on scaffolds, and at a later date the largest bones were buried in the earth..
