There’s More to See at
by MAry Michaels Photos by Chang Photography
You’ve Been Framed O
ver the past several years, You’ve Been Framed has made a name for itself with custom framing, design and decorating expertise. Now, with an expanded location at The Bridges at 57th, there’s even more to see at You’ve Been Framed. You can still find a wide array of custom framing options, with an entire wall filled with sample frame choices perfect for your special photos, sports memorabilia, family heirlooms and other memories you want to preserve in a unique way. Now, though, according to owner Tamara Dettler, there is more room to showcase all of their favorite products and bring in some new ones that are sure to become favorites. The company’s website says, “Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them.” The You’ve Been Framed team certainly takes that to heart as they search for the just-right items for their store.
8 out and about |
“We really look for those one-of-a-kind pieces, both classic and contemporary, that help people preserve memories or create new ones,” says Dettler. Certainly, their framing expertise helps preserve memories, but the store also offers many styles of ready-to-go frames and other unique ways to display photos like the magnetic photo cord by Herculittles. Perfect for pictures, cards, artwork or special notes, the cord can be hung by a loop at the top with a small nail or thumbtack. A stylish weight at the bottom holds the cord straight. Then, simply use the Herculittles tiny round magnets – or pick one of the many magnet colors or shapes – that stick directly to the cord to hold your special keepsakes. While going through an expansion of their location had its challenges, Dettler says it was worth it to be able to bring more great products to customers. “We are so grateful for our customers’ patience and support
during our construction,” she says. “This project has been a vision – part of the plan since we opened in 2004, and now it’s become a reality.” The new space houses their entire Pandora collection, with bright white cases filled with colorful beads and beautiful pieces of jewelry, as well as clothing and other accessories. While the store has dabbled in clothing since relocating to The Bridges, Dettler says, they are now truly a boutique setting that offers unique and limited pieces. This represents the “fab’rik” in their company tag line, “Frames, Frills and Fab’rik.” One of the other features in the new space is the Angelrox clothing line. Angelrox brand is great for work, travel, evening and even bridal looks. The knit wrap creates amazing layered style as a dress, skirt, top, tunic, shrug or whatever you can imagine. As the brand says, “experiment and play, there is no wrong way” to wear Angelrox, which emphasizes practices of reuse, recycle and sustainability in their business. Ensuring that you’re in fashion from head to toe, the store has
fashionable scarves, fabric headbands, Tokyo Bay watches and Sseko (say-ko) sandals. This unique piece of footwear gives you the opportunity to be your own fashion designer, with a leather sandal for which you can buy interchangeable fabric straps. The Sseko company is based in Uganda and provides opportunities for women to further their education and for women in East Africa to end the cycle of poverty and create a more equitable society. You’ve Been Framed also added a diverse collection of Hobo bags with the expansion. Not your ordinary handbag, the Hobo bags are known for their creativity, details and design. Be prepared to spend a little time here, as there is so much to see, whether you are shopping for yourself or for a gift. Peruse the books, like cute notebooks and journals that are blank or that contain inspirational messages. Or perhaps you’d like to check out the books on entertaining, cooking and grilling. If entertaining is your thing, you can find something for every occasion. In addition to beautiful touches for your home, like

framed art for the walls or candles and silk botanicals, there are products to help you get the party started. Begin your next gathering with one of the delicious cheeseball mixes, such as Key Lime Pie, Jalapeño Jack or Dulce deLeche. Dress up your chips with mixes for dips in flavors like barbeque or “ArteyChokey” and “Home on the Veggie Ranch.” For cool Fall days ahead, feature soup on your menu. Pick

a mix like tortilla or cheddar broccoli to warm up your meal. Gourmet pastas, pasta salad or pasta sauce spices will bring out your inner gourmet. And, no meal is complete without dessert, and You’ve Been Framed offers easy-to-make mixes like Apple Crisp – another Fall favorite. Don’t miss the extensive jewelry collection, with vintage-looking pieces from “My Mother’s Buttons” that offer one of a kind items

like necklaces or rings made from authentic antique buttons. The store also carries Lenny & Eva brand cuff bracelets and braided wrap bracelets. Customize your leather cuff with a metal plate inscribed with inspirational words or quotes from classic authors. Get a chance to pay it forward with the Giving Keys, a company that employs the homeless, to get them off the streets and give them a chance at a better life. So, when you purchase or are
given a Giving Keys necklace, you are to someday give it away to a person you feel needs the message that is on your key. That message might be faith, strength, love, grace or another word that is just what they need to hear. Whether you are looking for frames, fashion or other “frills,” come see what’s new at You’ve Been Framed...where things are never ordinary.

The Country Apple Orchard â€” A Family Affair E
ight years ago, if you asked Nancy Olson, manager of the Country Apple Orchard, what she would be doing now, running the apple orchard would not have made the list. Nancy is one of multiple family members of the Bernhard family who own the orchard, and also own Bernhard Contracting that sits just across the road and has been apart of the local community for the past 50 plus years â€œI had enjoyed the orchard in the past with my family, but had no interest or idea how the orchard ran. Now Nancy, along numerous family members make the orchard a family fun destination we all love. â€œWe really try to put a lot of love and effort into providing a family atmosphere for you to make memories with your family on your visit to the orchard. Our whole family pitches in. There is plenty of fun to be had at the orchard this year with 3 festivals on the calendar with performances by Pockets Full of Fun on September 8 on the newlyintroduced Family day. Phil Baker will play at the Apple Festival on September 15th and 16th as well as Bounce Around fun available from Bounce Around Inflatables. With a variety of apples to pick right from the tree as you take a wagon ride into the orchard or hand pick your own pumpkin, for young and old there is plenty to do.

Gary Gaede Home by Mary Michaels | Photos by Chang Photography
estled in a cozy neighborhood in southeast Sioux Falls is the home of Gary Gaede. The overall style of this spacious twinhome is the cumulative result of an art degree and over 40 years of retail work experience in clothing, home interiors and landscape design. Since moving in last year, Gaede has gradually been bringing his own unique touches to the space, beginning with the lush greenery that welcomes you at the front door. Once inside, you quickly see that the neutral wall colors are the perfect backdrop for his original artwork and the many visual displays that he has created throughout his home. Gaede says the art medium he is working in the most right now is markers and crayons on the back of wrapping paper or even shopping bags from Norman’s Menswear, where he has been working since he was a junior in high school (and now he is a grandpa six times over!). “I really like the way this paper takes the color of the markers,” he says. “I’m not sure what may happen to them in the sunlight or over time, but I like the way this looks.”
Avera McKennan Fitness Center is a great place to exercise! "I played sports in high school and college, and I currently play a lot of golf and still participate in track meets. My goal is to continue to stay in shape, and Avera has the equipment and classes I need. The staff is very well trained and the classes are challenging. Staying fit not only helps me physically, but keeps me mentally fit, too." — Todd P.

Some of these creations that feature an array of geometric designs are already framed and hanging on the wall. Other sheets of wrapping paper are still in the works, with large colorful tree frogs or turtles. Gaede doesn’t use just plain paper, either. His vision to use wrapping paper with a design on the reverse adds to the overall look of his pieces, as some of that print from the reverse shows through on the front. Another focal point in the main living area is the formal dining room table covered in a large tablescape that Gaede changes with the seasons. What has been green and lush for the summer months will transform this fall into a Halloween village, then to a holiday panorama. In the corner stands a large hutch that includes family pieces like his grandmother’s blue glass pitcher, as well as other things Gaede has found over the years, like a partial set of Blue Willow China. His artistic eye shows in the way the items are placed in the hutch, with the light in the hutch connecting the blue glass pitcher to the blue design on the china, or with the sprigs of greenery that peek out between plates or cups. Wherever there is a space, a shelf, a corner or a ledge, Gaede has successfully taken random items and created something that makes sense. “I find things here and there, even on eBay, and it is fun to put it all together,” says Gaede. The result may be artistic, elegant, comfortable or even

whimsical – such as the silver open basket that was a wedding gift his parents received. Gaede started with that piece of family history and filled it with greenery, pinecones, natural grapevine balls….and a ceramic rabbit. There are other rabbits tucked here and there around the house, along with a horse, a telescope, bottles, vases, law books, printers’ blocks, candlesticks, birdhouses and more.

The rooms of the main level flow from one to the next, with partial walls and a cutout window between the dining room and kitchen. Between the kitchen and master suite is a cozy den with an oversized leather chair and ottoman that invites you to stay awhile with a good book and a cup of tea. One of Gaede’s college-days art pieces hangs here – titled Alice in Wonderland, it is a colored drawing of Alice and company with a piece of acetate over the top on which he has outlined all of the characters and scenery with black pen. Stepping from the den into the master suite, you get a good sense of how much space this twinhome really has, with a sleeping area, large vanity, sunken Jacuzzi tub, separate toilet area and an enviable walk-in closet.

provides another place for one of Gaede’s signature visual elements with greenery, unique masks, a candelabra and other items that many of us would think, “wow, I would never have thought of doing that!” As you go down the stairs to the lower level, the first thing you see as you step into the comfortable seating area is a very large, sparkly cow hanging on the wall. This is an acquired piece of art that Gaede found, where the artist created the outline of the cow with lace and then attached to the lace all sorts of colorful stones, “jewels” and sequins to complete the picture. On more than one wall hang pieces of Gaede’s collection of tribal-inspired masks. He appreciates the artistry that went into creating them, but they also have a little family history. “These used to be all in one bathroom in my previous house,”

he explains. “When my grandkids were little, none of them ever wanted to use that bathroom because they were scared of the masks.” The lower level also has two extra bedrooms, one decorated in red, white and blue with a large flag on the wall, patriotic throw pillows on the bed and an old nickel peanut vending machine on the dresser. Gaede’s “art room” is also downstairs, with a large drafting table and drawers and shelves filled with papers and supplies. Using the wrapping paper as a canvas for his art and turning common items into decorative elements show how Gaede likes to recycle and “repurpose” (like using pottery mugs or wine goblets as candle holders). He has recently repurposed plastic containers that once held powered drink mix-ins to use for holding his marking pens. There are still some things Gaede plans to update down the road since the home is 22 years old, but for now he is enjoying his comfortable, functional living space filled with all of his favorite family keepsakes, artwork and other “conversation starter” touches that make his home so unique. As a sidenote, If you want to see some of Gaede’s personal creations, he will be the featured artist at Sticks & Steel at the 8th & Railroad Center in Sioux Falls this October.

Grilled veggies await Le Grand Aioli.
Le Grand Aioli
By Jim Mathis
36 nest |
man in the kitchen
“So on one of the few mercifully cool Sundays we’ve had in this blast furnace of summer, I decided it was time to try my hand at Le Grand Aioli – a little touch of the South of France right in our backyard.”
’ve heard the term “Le Grand Aioli” for years, and remembering just enough French from Madame Anderson’s class at Norwalk High to be dangerous, I know that “le grand” means “the big.” And aioli is just a garlic infused sauce, much like mayonnaise. So, I thought for many years, le grand aioli was just a big batch of garlicky mayo. Since I love aioli, a big batch can’t be a bad thing, right? But over the last few months, I’ve read several articles about Le Grand Aioli and I’ve learned it’s much more than a big bowl of sauce; it is a tradition, an event and a grand celebration of food that just so happens to be accompanied by a big batch of rich, garlicky aioli. The tradition can be traced back to the Provençal region in France and while I’ve read differing accounts that say the festival must include (alternately) fish, lamb, beef or even pork, it is always a celebration of the best and freshest seasonal vegetables. It is the aioli in which all of the dishes are dipped,
slathered or sauced that makes it Le Grand Aioli. Even the bread gets a taste of aioli; I guess that’s why they call aioli “the butter of Provence.” And since this is a celebration of the season, it seems only fitting that just about every article I read, showed this feast being served outdoors. So on one of the few mercifully cool Sundays we’ve had in this blast furnace of summer, I decided it was time to try my hand at Le Grand Aioli – a little touch of the South of France right in our backyard. I started with a trip to the farmer’s market where I picked up some beautiful multi-colored carrots, golden beets, red-skinned fingerling potatoes and nice head of fennel. Coincidently, a good friend — knowing my love of lamb — had given me a small boneless leg of lamb earlier in the week, and I was anxious to put it on the fire. I knew I had the makings of Le Grand Aioli. A loaf of crusty French bread and a good bottle of wine (or two) was all I needed.

Discussions of French cuisine always seem to end up with a discussion of one of the “mother sauces” and while aioli is not one of the classic five mother sauces, it is basically mayonnaise, with a few twists. Generally mayo is eggs, vegetable oil and vinegar. Aioli is much the same, using eggs to emulsify the fat (olive oil) with the acid, in this case lemon juice. But add a little (or a lot) of garlic and the mayo becomes aioli. In a pinch, you can even just add some finely minced garlic to some Hellmann’s for a pretty good stand in. There are hundreds of recipes on the web for aioli, so my advice would be to play around a bit and see what you like. One article I read suggested ten to twenty cloves of garlic for about a cup and half of aioli, but since I generally don’t want to smell like garlic for weeks after a meal, I stick to two or three. Some recipes use whole eggs, I just use yolks. A couple of suggestions from my trial and error; first, let the eggs come to room temp before building the sauce. They really emulsify much quicker and easier that way. Next, pick an olive oil that isn’t too pungent or grassy or it will tend to overpower everything. Then, whether you make it in a mortar and pestle, with a whisk or in a food processor, is up to you. I’ve had the best results with just a whisk and bowl. I can hear the food police already: You can’t serve raw eggs!

Everyone will die! Pffttt. I’ve been eating over-easy eggs all my life and I’m not dead yet. But if the idea of raw eggs freaks you out, try pasteurized eggs. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “In-shell pasteurized eggs may be used safely without cooking.” I know that Look’s Market sells them and you can ask at any mega-mart. But I don’t want any of you “anti-raw egg activists” yelling at me then turning around and eating raw cookie dough. You know who you are. If the raw eggs are OK in cookie dough, the aioli will be just fine. The feast was grand indeed! The lamb was rich, the roasted carrots, beets and potatoes soaked up the garlicky aioli. The bread was perfect for the last little bits of sauce. The wine made everything seem right in world. The next morning I could still taste just a hint of the garlic; the only problem was I woke up in Sioux Falls instead of the coast of Marseilles. Oh well...maybe next time. Do yourself a favor, eat something good today. When he’s not dreaming of a remote village in the South of France, Jim creates advertising at ADwërks, his ad agency in uptown Sioux Falls.

Men Are Like Fine Wine by Riccardo Tarabelsi
ver the course of my 12-year restaurant career, I have had the privilege of hearing and seeing some pretty strange things. They say that Stephen King has gotten all of his horror story ideas, which have turned into best-sellers, by sitting in a booth at restaurants. Then, he casually sips his coffee as he Spark_EFHAd_Sept2012.pdf
eavesdrops on neighboring conversations. That should give you an idea of just what occurs in a restaurant setting. Over the years, Iâ€™ve observed blind dates gone awry, couples breaking up, people leaving without paying, families sitting in silence, little kids throwing sauce-drenched pasta, half-

eaten chicken strips, forks, knives, straws, crayons, candles, plates, and tantrums. My personal favorite is patrons with split personalities (What?! The wait is an hour-and-a-half?! This is outrageous! Do you know who I am? This is ridiculous. You have no clue what you’re doing. This is the worst experience ever… then, after the meal… Wow! This was amazing! You’re the best! I’m telling everyone about your restaurant. Can’t wait to come back! Love you!) I’ve seen patrons cry, sob, yell, scream, swear, fight, condescend, and break things. But I’ve also seen the magic… Fiftieth wedding anniversaries, surprise birthday parties for the mom that never gets recognition, proposals, engagements, puppy love, prom nights, hundred dollar tips, compliments, and bachelorette parties. I remember this one particularly inebriated bachelorette who said to me, “Men are like fine wine!” Of course, as an avid wine guy, she caught my attention. She then continued, “They all start off like grapes, and it’s a woman’s job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something we’d like to have dinner with!” How true… For those of you seeking a mature wine to have dinner with, I highly suggest looking at fine wines from Italy. There are two that come to mind almost immediately, both from Tuscany. The first is

the highest Riserva Chianti from longtime wine producer Ruffino, and the other comes from Tuscan wine royalty Castello Banfi. Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro was first produced in 1947 and is an evolution of Ruffino’s Riserva Ducale. The Oro is appropriately decorated with a beautiful gold label, a replica of the Riserva Ducale label. What makes this wine a significant event on your palate is the length of time this wine is given as it matures. After malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is aged about 36 months, first in vats for about 3 months, then in oak casks for about 24 months, and lastly in the bottle for a minimum of 6 months. This wine is absolutely superb, and well worth the price. Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro is one of those hidden treasures in the wine world, winning many accolades in wine competitions but often overshadowed by its neighboring Tuscan competitor to the south: Montalcino. Brunello di Montalcino is arguably the most sought after Italian wine in recent history, especially after the 1997 vintage blew the socks off of every wine aficionado on the planet. Castello Banfi has been making award-winning Brunello wines for decades, and the care that is taken when harvesting these special Sangiovese Grosso grapes in the small town of Montalcino is evident in the bottle. Meticulous grape selection is followed by a 10 day vinification process and subsequently aged for 2 years in oak barrels of various sizes: 350 liter barriques and 60 and 120 hectoliter barrels. Then the wine is

aged in the bottle for a minimum of 12 months before it is released. Just when you thought this couldn’t get any better, Banfi also produces a Brunello di Montalcino called Poggio all’Oro which is an even more mature version of the Brunello, only aged an extra year in the barrel. Talk about a big wine! It is one of my all time favorites. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention three other wines that are made in Italy, only this time in the regions of Piedmont and Valpolicella. Barolo and Barbaresco are the reigning wines of Piedmont, both are huge and aged in oak barrels for years, yielding bold Nebbiolo wines that rival any high-end Napa Cab you’ve ever had. The other is Amarone della Valpolicella. Only the best grapes from this region are hand-harvested and then laid on wooden racks for 3 to 4 months before they’re pressed and doublefermented to create one of the driest wines I’ve ever tasted. Next time you’re looking for a little more sophistication out of your wine, look no further than your friends in Italy who are making outstanding, mature wines. Carpe Vino Italiano!

mind-body-spirit travel 55 Visit Ponca, Nebraska
health & well-being 60 Genetic Counseling: Assessing Your Breast Cancer Risk
by Jessica Weischedel
estled in the northeast corner of Nebraska sits a town called Ponca, the fourth oldest town in the state. Just two miles from the banks of the Missouri River, Ponca is just about 25 miles from Sioux City, Iowa and Vermillion, SD, and only 90 miles south of Sioux Falls. There are two city parks in town as well as the beautiful Ponca State Park, the Missouri River, and Highland Oaks Golf Course nearby. With such a variety of outdoor activities at hand, the town is the perfect place to take a few days off for refreshment, rest and relaxation. A notable place to eat in Ponca is a little place called Bob’s Bar and Grill. Known as the “Home of the Big Burgers”, this little bar in a little town offers giant portions to its customers. The food here is considered by some to be legendary. Ponca State Park is just two miles from the town of Ponca, both named for the Native American tribe that inhabited the area long ago. The infamous Ponca Chief Standing Bear was victorious in winning the court battle to have the Indian
declared a “person” under American law, placing him in the Nebraska Hall of Fame. At the entrance of Ponca State Park is the city-owned Highland Oaks Golf Course, a picturesque 9-hole regulation course surrounded by pretty tree-covered bluffs. Overlooking the course and lake is an impressive club house containing three stories with a full bar and lounge. The Missouri National River Resource and Education Center is 17,000 square feet full of educational opportunities and information about the history and nature of the entire region. It offers outdoor skill programs such as shooting sports, fishing, orienteering, outdoor cooking, and much more. There is also an interactive museum that teaches visitors about the Missouri River. Ponca State Park is the eastern escape to one of two unchannelized stretches of the Missouri National Recreational River. Designated under the Scenic River Act in 1978, the 59mile section of river “gives visitors a glimpse of how the untamed river looked before modern man changed it forever”.

The park is also part of the Lewis and Clark Historical Trail. The wilderness at Ponca State Park is animated with the beautiful sights and sounds of the creatures who live there. From musical songbirds and chanting tree frogs, to majestic trees and brilliant flowers, the beauty of nature is everywhere here. Around 1,400 acres of wetlands called the Elk Point Bend Wildlife Area sit in the north section of Ponca State Park, with backwater kayak and canoe areas, and trails with plenty of amazing views, including a tri-state overlook. Situated on top of the bluffs, this scenic overlook offers an impressive look at the states of Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota. There are over 20 miles of trails provided for hikers and mountain bikers, as well as bike

On the third weekend in September through the first weekend of Fall, Ponca State Park and the surrounding community hosts the Missouri River Outdoor Expo, which attracts nearly 20,000 visitors every year. The event is designed to introduce families to new ways to enjoy the outdoors. Hay rides carry sightseers to each destination located within the vast 2,500 acres of the park.

Exercise During Pregnancy For most moms-to-be, exercise is safe and beneficial. By Elise Mickelson, for Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center
What is Pediatric Optometry?
Pediatric optometry refers to the examination of children’s eyes by optometrists who are trained in evaluating and treating visual disorders in children. Some pediatric optometrists complete a post graduate residency in pediatric eye care. A large focus in pediatric eye care is on binocular vision (eye learning) and other visual functional skills that go beyond just eyesight. Pediatric optometrists work closely with the pediatric ophthalmologists when ocular pathology is present.
How do you examine my children’s eyes when they are too young to talk?
The vision examination by the optometrists includes evaluation of the child’s eye movements, eye alignment, and other visual behaviors. Specific, objective testing and instrumentation allow for assessment of children’s refractive correction without the need of verbal feedback for the child. Children’s eyes will routinely be dilated during the exam. The dilation also allows the doctor to view the structures inside the eye to look for abnormalities of the retina or optic nerve. www.centerforvisuallearning.com

mom-to-be has many questions, which may include, “Can I exercise? Is exercising safe during pregnancy?” Although there are certain cautions for women who are pregnant, being active and exercising during your pregnancy can hold many benefits for both you and your baby. Dr. Annie Siewert, OB/GYN with Avera Medical Group Obstetrics & Gynecology Sioux Falls, is a firm believer in the benefits of exercise for women who are pregnant. Besides the

and exercising can help you gain the stamina and strength that could help you during labor.” Marne’ Schelling believes remaining active and exercising frequently during her last pregnancy helped her have a fast and safe delivery when she gave birth to her son, Layton. Marne’ recommends exercising throughout pregnancy as a mother, a woman expecting her second child in November, and a trainer at the Avera McKennan Fitness Center. As a trainer, she has worked with pregnant women of various fitness levels from experienced to novice. “The intensity of your recommended exercise program largely depends on your past workout regimen,” she says. When asked if it is safe to start exercising while pregnant, Dr. Siewert answers with a definite “yes.” “Even if you are just getting started, it will be highly beneficial for you. Start with five minutes a day, and keep adding five more. It doesn’t seem like much, but it makes a big difference.” The recommendation for most people is 30 minutes of activity every day and it is the same during pregnancy. However, this 30-minute mark should be adjusted to fit your skill level, your body, and your pregnancy. Both Schelling and Dr. Siewert emphasize the importance of listening to your body and changing your workout accordingly. “Modify your workout according to how you are feeling,” Schelling says. She recommends making small changes, like doing a ball squat instead of a typical squat, to compensate for the changes in your body. However, there are some exercises that should be eliminated from your workout if you are pregnant. Avoid jumping movements, any high impact activities and sports, as well as exercises like squats and lunges. Plus, as the pregnancy progresses past the first trimester, it is best to avoid exercises that require you to lie on your back. For most exercises, Dr. Siewert offers a simple way to determine whether or not to do them – “If you don’t like the way it feels – stop.” Finally, pregnant women should monitor their heart rate to make sure it doesn’t exceed 140 beats per minute, as a higher heart rate could restrict blood flow and air supply to the baby. A common test for a healthy heart rate is whether or not you are able to carry on a conversation while working out. If you can’t, slow down. There are a few patient groups that should avoid exercising during pregnancy – those with severe heart disease, bad asthma, pregnancy-induced hypertension, as well as those who know they are at risk for pre-term labor. These groups are exceptions; in most cases, exercising is highly beneficial activity during pregnancy. To learn more about pregnancy and childbirth, go to www. AveraWomens.org.

Fall Tree Art
by Jessica Weischedel
all is near, and so are the brilliant colors of trees with their falling leaves and the crisp fresh air of autumn. Get your kids excited for the season by crafting some colorful projects with them that are inspired by this anticipated time of year. Use their projects as seasonal décor and to make your children proud of what they have accomplished!
Acorn Owls Materials: Large acorns, glue, paintbrush, scissors, and felt scraps. Directions: Using the scissors, carefully cut out small white felt circles for the eyes, and smaller colored felt circles for the irises of the eyes. Next, cut out a tiny orange triangle for the beak and two small wings of any color felt of your choice. Using the glue, patiently adhere these body parts onto your acorn. You should now have a little acorn owl that needs some more friends, so continue these steps on more acorns to create a little acorn owl group. For some fun accessories, cut out a brown felt branch, some green leaves, some flowers, or get creative and think of other things to decorate the owl family with.

Tree Branch Art Materials Needed: Sticks with twigs and various shapes connected to them, hot glue, small paintbrush, art canvases to fit the sticks, and your choice of decoration. Directions: There are a variety of options for this craft, but all require gluing the sticks to the canvas. Using hot glue, glue the sticks to the canvases for each design you want to create. This is a job for the grown up to create the canvas for the child to decorate. Once dry, your child can use paint to create leaves on the canvas that surround the branches, place colorful buttons or fabric leaves around the branches of the tree using glue, and any other decorative idea they can come up with! Create a wall display with several canvases of the same size and use as your seasonal fall decor.

Handprint Tree Materials Needed: White and orange construction paper or card stock, scissors, glue, and acrylic or poster paint in the colors of Fall. Directions: Prepare a work surface by covering a table with newspaper or a plastic table cloth. Make sure your child is dressed in clothing that can get messy. Show them where they should place their arm on the white paper, and be sure to include from below the elbow all the way to the palm and every finger. Paint their fingers, palm, wrist and arm completely with brown paint, using a paint brush of the appropriate size. Have them place their hand where they did before and firmly press down to create the trunk and branches of the tree. Wash their hands completely. Using various fall colors for the leaves, have your child dip their finger tips into the paint and dot the branches and spaces around them to create the leaves. Once the leaves are in place, you could paint some grass along the bottom, a little bird on one of the branches, and your childâ€™s initials in the trunk for a finished result! Use the orange construction paper as a frame and glue your childâ€™s piece of art to the middle, creating an orange border. Hang for everyone to enjoy and celebrate the coming of fall.
Pop Up Tree Materials Needed: Paper towel roll, paint brush, glue, scissors, brown paint, tissue paper in Fall colors or a pack of decorative Fall leaves from any craft store, and a thicker white card stock or poster board. Directions: Paint the paper towel roll brown and allow to dry. Using your scissors, cut one end of the paper towel roll into four sections and glue those sections to the white paper, causing the roll to stand upright. This will be the trunk of your tree. Cut the top end of the roll into various slits to look like tree branches. Choose your tissue paper colors for your leaves and cut out pieces to glue onto the tree branches, or use the decorative leaves purchased at the craft store. Also glue some leaves to the white ground, creating some have fallen off the tree. Feel free to decorate the white paper with acorns and other Fall colors with paint.

hen Beth Meyer first learned she was pregnant in May, she began to scour websites like Pinterest and Etsy for inspiration to recast an ordinary spare bedroom into a beautiful nursery for her son, Gavin. She found that both sites offered a limitless number of themes and decorating ideas for a child’s bedroom; however, as a mother to a three-year-old girl, Isabel, Beth quickly found herself in unfamiliar territory. Over the past several years, she had become rather accustomed to the color pink and all-things girly, so it was deemed a challenge to pick an overall theme. “I really struggled to try and come up

with an idea or theme for the nursery,” says Beth. “I have a little girl, so I wasn’t exactly sure how to decorate a boys’ room. I wasn’t sure if I wanted animals, baseball or football as a theme.” Beth finally opted to build the room around a gray and blue color scheme. She also purchased some white wall decals online to provide a subtle contrast to the walls. “My favorite part of the room is the white tree decals,” she says. “I got the idea off of Pinterest and then purchased them on Etsy. I think it’s a subtle contrast that makes a big impact. It also stimulates Gavin, but doesn’t over-stimulate him.”

The charming room features many key elements of a dream nursery: smart design and savvy storage, effective use of wall space, natural lighting as well as sturdy and well-made furniture. “A lady sold me all of the furniture in the room, including the green storage bin,” she says. “I used it for my daughter and I’m reusing it for Gavin.” The storage bin, which is located in the corner of the room, has six storage areas that allow enough room to dedicate each cube to the essentials – diapers, swaddlers, stuffed animals, burp rags, blankets, wipes, etc. “It’ll be a perfect piece of furniture to grow and transition with him,” she says. “As he gets older, I can swap out the burp rags for blocks, and so on.” A wall-mounted shelf hangs above the green storage bin and provides additional storage for books and more stuffed animals. Gavin’s closet is also perfectly organized and arranged in a tidy manner. Clothes are organized by stages/sizes (0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, etc.), and blankets, socks, shoes and bibs are kept in appropriately labeled storage bins. “I’m kind of an organizational addict,” she says. “Organization is very important to me because I like when everything has its own place. Also, if we ever hire a sitter, it’s all very visual. She’s able to see where everything is located and it’s easy for her to find everything.” Beth sprinkled the walls with unique items that feature fun and personalized details. She created a no-worries piece of artwork with a wooden letter “G”, an old picture frame and a can of spray

paint. “It turned out to be a beautiful piece of art and one of the main focal points in the room,” she says. In addition, Beth had a cast made of her stomach while she was pregnant that now hangs in the nursery. “Another one of my favorite items in the room is my tummy cast,” she says. “It’s a neat way to have something hanging on the wall, but also signify my pregnancy and his birth.” Beth designed Gavin’s room specifically to grow along with him. The color scheme lends the room longevity and flexibility. “I thought it was a good blank palate, so as Gavin gets older and decides what he likes, it will be easier to pull in different colors and themes.” In a once-vacant room, Beth has worked diligently to carve out a cozy space for her newborn son. It’s full of fresh ideas.

“More than 200,000 women a year in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer. The more information you have about your own predisposition to develop breast cancer, the better you can work with your doctor to prevent or discover this disease at its earliest stages.” better you can work with your doctor to prevent or discover this disease at its earliest stages. A genetic counselor will often work with families to identify members who are at risk. Our role is to help our patients understand their risk for cancer, educate them about hereditary cancer and assess the risk of passing the predisposition of cancer on to children. If it is appropriate, we discuss genetic testing, coordinate any testing, interpret test results and review all additional testing, surveillance, surgical, or research options that are available to members of the family.
Your History One of the first things we review is the family history. While approximately 5-10% of all cancers are hereditary, the majority of families who experience an excess of cancer do not have hereditary cancer. Family members growing up in the same environment may contribute to similar environmental interactions causing multiple family members to have cancer. A visit to a genetic counselor may help in determining the underlying cause of cancer within a family. Genetic predisposition for breast cancer can be inherited

from both sides of the family, which makes medical information necessary from both the mother and father’s side of the family tree. If a close relative, such as a sister, mother or daughter, has a genetic mutation that can lead to cancer, she may also be at an increased risk.
Genetic Testing The genetic tests looking for breast cancer mutations are one of the most effective methods for identifying women at risk for getting breast cancer. If a woman is identified as being at an increased risk routine screenings can be offered to prevent cancer or catch it early on. Today’s blood tests for breast and ovarian cancer look for changes, or mutations, in genes, most notably the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Normally, these genes help control cell growth. When these two genes are not working properly, the cells can change and grow out of control causing cancer. Women who inherit these gene changes have a higher-than-average chance of getting breast or ovarian cancer. We’re learning more about the role of genetics in cancer everyday. New research efforts, such as Sanford’s BioBank, a repository of genetic samples to be used to further study breast
cancer, may unlock new clues to treatments and cures in the future.
Considering the Results As important as the actual testing is reviewing the results with a licensed genetic counselor. While the results of your lab work may be straightforward, the issue of how to consider the results can be complex. Women who test positive for the BRCA mutations are generally recommended to have increased screenings for the disease. Some women will opt for surgery to remove breasts or ovaries to avoid any chance of developing cancer. Discussing the results with both your doctor and a genetic counselor allows you know all of your options and make the best decision for your own situation.
Talking About Your Options If you have any concerns about your risk for developing breast cancer, talk to your doctor about whether genetic counseling might be a wise choice for you. When you know your risks, you can work with your doctor to take the steps you need to best protect your health.

Putting the Fun in Fundraising By Adrienne McKeown
t’s that time of year again. It’s time to embrace the cool fall evenings, the smell of popcorn at the local Friday night football game, and the unexpected ring of the doorbell. Wait, the ring of the doorbell? Oh
yes, that’s right. Now that the kids have gone back to school and the fall activities are in full swing, a new season overtakes the lazy days of summer. It’s fundraising season, and every child in every activity has got something to sell to unsuspecting family members and neighbors. It’s a season many parents dread as they try to calculate just how many rolls of wrapping paper or how many tubs of cookie dough the

family budget can support. (Or how many more times they can hit up Grandma and Grandpa before they change their phone number.) But what if fundraising was easy? What if there was someone who could help by offering eco-friendly products, some of which are made locally? Enter Monica Pluim, co-owner of two small businesses—Jungle Beans Coffee and Fundraising is Easy—that are uniquely positioned to help people and organizations looking to raise money for their causes. We sat down with this ambitious business owner, wife, and mother to learn more about how she balances the demands of each role and how she is bringing a fresh, new perspective to fundraising.
Please share with our readers a little bit about your business. Jungle Beans Coffee started off as a coffee wholesaler that really wanted to integrate into the local restaurants. (I have a restaurant background.) Then the owner’s son had an idea to turn it into a fundraising business, and I really liked that. So we take our coffee, and people can put a private label on it for their school, church, or organization and sell it. But I wanted to take our fundraising product line further beyond coffee, and as of this year, we’ll have five new products added. I really have a heart for helping these people raise money for their causes. Our clientele started mainly with mission work, but now it’s mostly schools. We see a lot of schools—not so much locally, but on the coasts—that are really hurting. We’ve seen schools that can’t even afford to pay their librarians. It’s been hard to see, but helping schools and helping children is where my passion lies.
How did you end up owning your own business? Have you always had an interest in business? I come from a family of teachers and that wasn’t for me, so I’ve always been trying to find my niche. I honestly never had the dream to own my own business. I was more into the psychology field and helping others that way. And then through my journeys in the last five years, I was introduced to a company that needed some help here locally, and I jumped on board to help. Then a year later, I bought the business! I just really saw a lot of potential in it and in helping others. I really enjoyed it.
Besides coffee, what other kinds of products do you offer for groups to sell? We try to keep a green, Earth-friendly product line, and we also try to support local businesses as much as we can. In addition to the coffee which we roast locally, we also offer cocoa made in Luverne and pet grooming products from another company in Sioux Falls that is number four in the world for pet grooming supplies. As far as eco-

We try to offer positive products. So, I understand that you bought this business when you were eight months pregnant. Was that a little scary? Incredibly. It was my first child, and it was a difficult pregnancy, so I was already exhausted. The hard part was that I knew that all of the websites needed major work to accomplish the goals that I had for the company, so trying to do all of that while I was in the hospital was really hard. I had my laptop with me in the delivery room because it was fundraising season. She [our daughter] came right during our busiest month of the year—September. And I had my roaster bringing me brochures to approve proofs while I was in the hospital. My mom was like, “Times have changed!” It was stressful, but I am a
woman of faith, and I know that God gave it to me for a reason. But I was so tired! No maternity leave! (laughs) So how did you handle all of that change at the same time? What did you do? I ran on empty, but the excitement of it all—it just kept me going. And finally at Christmas time—when all of the schools are dismissed—I was able to take my maternity time. It was awesome to know we made it through that, though. My husband is an awesome help and awesome daddy, too. Oh…and my roaster, Jack, worked the whole time and really kicked it into gear. He is phenomenal, and he really helped me out. So how do you balance being a business owner, entrepreneur, wife, and mother?

My friends would say that I’m uber detail-oriented. I don’t think I could do it if I wasn’t. My day is planned out the day before, and I am very particular. Every day I have my schedule in my head of the things I know I can get done and the things I hope to get done. My daughter is in part-time daycare during the summer and full-time daycare during the school year. Eventually, my goal is to be a stayat-home mom during the summer because that’s our off-season, but for now, I clean houses so I can pay myself! And my husband helps out and takes the evening shift with our daughter. I have amazing girlfriends who help me to maintain balance as well. We make it a point for us moms to get together so we can have our down time, whether it’s going to Bible studies or happy hour. What advice do you have for other women entrepreneurs just starting out? Take it a day at a time. This is so cliché, but really just sit down, breathe, and figure out what is most important and handle those things first. In the end, you’ll be blessed by putting the right things first. Don’t pour your heart into everything — prioritize. And have fun doing it. This is one of the first times in my life where I truly, truly, enjoy working. Also, have faith in yourself. I hope that this business survives and makes it through many years so we can pass it on to our
kids, so they can help people too. Being a small business owner comes with pros and cons. What are the biggest advantages and disadvantages? The biggest advantage is that you get to make decisions and run with your own ideas without running them past somebody else. The biggest disadvantage might be that the effects of those decisions can directly affect your family, and that can be scary. They can affect your finances and your home atmosphere. It’s hard to turn work off. Do you ever sit back and think, “What have I gotten myself into?” I think I would’ve thought that more if we hadn’t bought the company right in the midst of a huge fundraiser season. Yes, there were times around the beginning of summer when I began to panic because you still have to pay for all of the operating expenses, even though the revenue isn’t coming in, but then I realized that it hasn’t been easy for anybody who’s gotten anywhere. But yeah, I have had moments like that — usually in the middle of the night when I was running on empty. During those times, I kept looking at my baby and thinking, “I did this for us,” and I don’t think my drive would’ve been as great if it wasn’t for her. My journey is still going, but I’m here now and it’s worth it.

The Ears Have It by Dick Rogen, DVM
ot all ear infections are created equal. Itâ€™s a daily task cleaning and treating those pesky ears. The problem is, that each ear infection has a different cause and many times different treatment options. Traditionally, most people thought if their pet had red and sore ears, that they would have mites in their ears. Today, it is very uncommon to find those pesky bugs. A simple look under the microscope can be used to diagnose Ear Mites. They are easy to eliminate and the newer medications are very effective. Even a dose of Revolution will eliminate them. More commonly, ears are inflamed and smelly from bacteria and yeast. We have a small population of bacteria and yeast on our skin at all times. They live there and usually do not cause a problem. However, once they get fed, get out of the way. Flash, the Bassett Hound, has deep, dark moist ears that are the perfect area for yeast to grow. Yeast are opportunists that just wait for a little moisture, inflammation and heat. The most effective ways to treat these infections are cleaning, acidifying the ear canal and using antifungal medications. Once the infection is controlled, I like to clean these types of ears once or twice a week. Keeping them dry and acidic is the key to prevention. Labs and other big dogs appear to be more prone to a mixture of bacteria and yeast. It is important to find out what type of bacteria is causing the problem and then using the appropriate
88 friends & family |
medications. If your first treatment is not working, a culture of the material for identification is warranted. Some of the bacteria are very resistant to the common medications we use today. Ear infections can become a very frustrating problem. It is important to find the underlying cause of the inflammation that allows or feeds the bacteria. Often allergies to foods, pollen and trees can be the igniting force of the infection. Once the allergies are eliminated, then infections are controlled. In the most severe cases, surgery can be the answer. I perform a number of lateral ear resections that open the canal to allow air and light into the area. Once the canal is opened, you can keep the ear dry and clear of infections. In the most severe cases, we remove the entire ear canal, ear drum and a portion of the inner ear. It can provide long term relief from the pain and discomfort of chronic ear infections. If your pet has an ear infection, have them looked at by your veterinarian. You want to make sure they do not have an inner ear infection or perforation of their ear drum prior to treating with topical medications. This is a problem that goes away much quicker with the proper diagnosis. If it is a recurring problem, make sure you look for the underlying cause. You should not have to treat the ears forever.

n late July 1864, members of an all-Indian and uniformed Yankton Agency scout unit followed the trail of an unknown war party. When the warriors attempted to flee, they were pursued, captured, and taken to the Yankton’s camp about one-mile north of this site. The prisoners were Santee who left Devil’s Lake 20 days earlier in search of settlers to rob and murder. One captive, a member of White Lodge’s band, claimed that he had killed ten settlers during the Dakota Conflict. The Santee were told that the Yankton scouts were friendly to settlers who belonged to Great Father, the President of the United States. The Yankton were from the tribe of Chief Struck by the Ree. Called Old Strike, he had positioned his warriors to protect settlers during the uprising in Minnesota. In view of their confessions, the Santee were summarily executed. “Receipts” in the form of scalps were taken and delivered to the Yankton Indian Agent. During the winter of 1938-39, some 74 years after the mass execution, workmen building a runway for the new Sioux Falls Municipal Airport uncovered 12 shallow graves and removed the remains of 14 Santee warriors.

Principal Chief of the Yankton Sioux “Struck by the Ree” was so named after he was partially scalped by an Arikara (Ree) warrior. Many of his years as chief were spent promoting peace. Three Presidents, Franklin Pierce, Ulysses S. Grant, and James Garfield, awarded Peace Medals to him. He died in 1888. Image owner: South Dakota State Historical Society.
The Practice of Scalping During the French and Indian War, both the British and the French encouraged their separate Indian allies to practice scalping. The two European powers paid warriors in trade goods according to the number of foes they had killed; the amount due was quickly determined by counting the number of scalps brought in. As shown in the illustration, warriors announced their valor by giving a fierce death cry as they displayed their new trophy.
