If a visit to Sweden is on your ‘Bucket List’, this is your chance to fully experience all that the Scandinavian country has to offer. Scandi Experience is offering a 14 day guided bus tour through Sweden that includes day trips to Norway and Denmark. The package includes round trip airfare, events and attractions, prime lodging accommodations and most of your meals! And the best part is, you’ll be guided by a local Swede with Minnesota connections. Scandi Experience is owned and operated by the brother-sister tandem of Martin and Anna Hallkvist. Martin came to the United States in 2005 to go to college and after graduating with a degree in Tourism Management and Development, he settled his Swedish roots down in Minnesota and opened up a shop called Designs of Sweden in downtown Stillwater. As the popularity of his store grew, he got frequent visitors with Swedish heritage asking about the country and talking about how great it would be to visit there sometime. Out of those inquires, Scandi Experience was born. Anna, who still lives in Värmland, Sweden, leads the tours once visitors are in the country, and Martin makes sure things run smoothly and everything is organized and stress-free for the travelers. Both travel with the groups at all times in their endeavors in Sweden. Early on, the tours were small, with just five to six people and would only last a week or so, but as the demand has grown, so have the group numbers and the length of stay. This year’s tour will have two separate trips. Both will have the same itinerary, but will just offer different dates for easier scheduling. The trips run from June 12-25 and from August 7-20. “We will be traveling through southern Sweden, and visit both Denmark and Norway. We did this exact tour in August of this year and had a great response to it, so we are doing it again next year,” Martin explained. “We have one tour leaving in June, and one in August. Both are summer tours when the weather in Scandinavia is the best and the days are the longest.” Travelers will be treated to a deluxe comfortable motor coach on their land travels in Scandinavia. They will be bussed around southern Sweden, which is the area many of the ancestors who settled in Minnesota came from, including Småland, Skåne, Dalsland, and Värmland, to name a few provinces. “On our last tour we actually had a handful of travelers who got to visit the actual parish their ancestors came from, so that was a memorable experience,” Martin noted. “Our travelers get to see some hidden gems with our tours, some places that you dont get to see if you go on your own, or with another tour company. You get to travel through the countryside, you are invited into Swedish homes for some coffee, and walk around Viking runes, but at the same time see the famous landmarks. With us you get to see Sweden the way your ancestors saw it.” The authenticity of the tours is important to Martin and Anna. “We both grew up there and I think people enjoy our tours because they are so real,” he said. “We choose the destinations, hotels, and events and attractions on the itinerary based on

our own experiences. If we have not experienced it and loved it we will not put it on the itinerary.” The price for the whole experience is $3,995, which includes all of the aforementioned experiences, plus 29 meals. “That’s another reason our travelers enjoy our tours – the price. We are a small tour operating company, and by keeping it small we can offer our tours at a very reasonable price,” Martin explained. If you want more information on the tours, please visit Scandi Experience’s on the internet at, or simply come down to their store, Designs of Sweden in downtown Stillwater. They are open every day 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Interested travelers can also call Martin directly at 651-202-5024. Martin finished with the tradition Scandinavian greeting, “On behalf of Anna and myself we would like to wish you Välkommen on board!”

VIRGA CHIROPRACTIC WORKS! "For about four years, I have been dealing with lower back pain caused by a combination of scoliosis, compressed discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica and arthritis. This has made it difficult for me to walk any distance, climb stairs, or even do ordinary housework that involves standing and/or bending. I have tried the usual treatments. Since I have been participating in the Diamond Disc Institute treatments, my pain is greatly diminished. I walk without limping and sleep with a very limited amount of discomfort. Without chronic pain, I have much less fatigue and have more energy for work and fun."

Our current Solar Ordinance is sorely lacking in specific language that could ensure that County Residents don’t feel over-run by Solar “Gardens” and “Farms” in the very near future.

Concerns with the Solar Ordinance include: • No Public Notification required for projects less than 20 Acres in size • No specific guidelines requiring plantings to block views of the solar projects from neighbors • No set-back requirements from Public Right-OfWays or neighboring homes • No Protections to prevent Prime Farmland from being taken out of production • Painfully few limits to where solar projects can be installed • No limits on how many will saturate our landscape • No data assuring residents of the safety of Solar Power Plants in regards to health and welfare • Negative Impact on property values

How I Arrived At NHS: I was part of a large colony of cats living at a working farm. Note From My Foster Mom: Kip came from a colony of barn cats, he was happy there and once in my care he decided that being around people was pretty cool too. It only took him a day or two to figure out that in a house he had things like toys, after inspecting them carefully he learned to play with them. He also appreciated having a warm bed, plenty of food and fresh water. He was fortunate to have some of his siblings with him as well (Loverboy for example), when he saw me holding and petting Loverboy he got curious. He showed me he was ready for interaction by coming with in reach and rolling around on the floor. Kip is not as comfortable being held but he loves a good head scratching and with time I'm sure he'll be a great lounge buddy, right now he has more interest in experiencing all the new toys he has access too. Good With Kids: unknown. Good With Cats: yes. Good With Dogs: unknown.

Hagrid How I Arrived At NHS: We came from Texas - a family of 7 puppies with our mom! Note from My Foster Mom: Hagrid is the biggest of the bunch and growing fast! He is enthusiastic about getting attention from people and has no qualms about letting you know he's there! He likes to play keep away from the other puppies with their toys, and tug of war if he loses keep away. He likes to investigate and explore. Good with Dogs: unknown; has six littermates Good with Cats: unknown Good with Kids: unknown
