EAT, MAKE &

BE SCARY

I

am surrounded by makers, crafters, artisans and those who create with their hands. Whether it’s my dad who can make me a new coffee table when I need it, my best friend who made me a coffin-shaped table and bath gems, my roommate who paints, my grandma who crotchets me blankets or my dear friends making tasty beer at the local breweries, I hope people like this never stop pursuing their crafts. If you do the same to any extent, whether it’s a hobby or your career, keep doing what you’re doing. Your talents will forever make this community unique and special. Now, most who know me by now (and even people who barely know me) know about my tendency to live in Halloween mode year-round. Now that it’s socially acceptable for me to display my affection without getting weird looks, I thought I would share a few of the many local ways to get into the Halloween spirit. Stay spooky, Fargo.

Beauty Queen Bee The Honey B Soap Company

or Brittany Sinclair, the soap adventure began when she was reading the ingredients on a bottle of soap in the shower and thought to herself, “This stuff is garbage.”

By Erica Rapp Photos by Hillary Ehlen

HANDMADE LIST: ӽӽ Soap bars ӽӽ Bath and body oils ӽӽ Salt and sugar scrubs ӽӽ Clay masks ӽӽ Lip balms

ӽӽ Body butter ӽӽ Bath salts ӽӽ Bath bombs ӽӽ Lotion bars ӽӽ Shampoo bars

Sinclair started her bath and

beauty business, The Honey B Soap Company, in 2012. She was a science teacher at Fargo South High at the time, pregnant with her third child and making her own artisan soaps on the side as a safer alternative for herself and her family. Her knowledge of chemistry basics, the public’s growing interest in her products and the daunting cost of daycare for three is the mixture that eventually led Sinclair to quit teaching and stay home to pursue her handmade business full-time. “After that moment in the shower was when I had the idea to start making my own soap. Then women started expressing interest in natural soap and wanted to buy it from me. The business just accidentally happened because I started to realize there’s this huge demand to fill for all-natural stuff,” said Sinclair. “I’ve seen an increase in the last year of people buying local and handmade, as people become more aware of my business but also more aware of how important it is to support local. It’s not like I’m this huge corporation. When you buy a bar of soap from me, you’re helping me get my kids shoes and piano lessons and stuff.” Outside of selling to her friends, Sinclair first sold her products at RiverArts in Moorhead, and that’s when she realized making her bubbling craft a full-time gig was possible. She then came in contact with Eco Chic Boutique to have her soaps sold at the local boutique, which was her first experience doing wholesale. Now she’s making her products in larger

quantities, and you can find them at events, farmers markets, through Pride of Dakota and at local stores such as The Red Silo, Tochi Products, Unglued, Eco Chic Boutique and all four Herberger’s locations in North Dakota. “Being a business owner is hard. You have to take criticism and you have to take it well. I try to take the emotion out of it and I’m good at that because it’s science, so I’m really analytical about those things. But I can get emotionally drained sometimes,” said Sinclair. “Parts of this industry are tricky, especially when you produce in such a large quantity. You’re bound to have failures. That’s where tenacity comes in because you just have to power through and figure out what you’re going to do next.” What started with decadent bars of soap has sprouted into an entire bath and beauty line of creations and changes due to feedback and trends. Soaps, body butters, oils, bath salts, bath bombs, clay masks, lip balms, scrubs–Sinclair makes everything you need in this department, really. Everything is all-natural with no synthetics or added dyes, and she also uses biodegradable packaging. And, she does it all by hand out of her basement.

soaking in that, realistically. I mean, I thought that if my kids are going to be soaking in it, I wouldn’t want that. I don’t do glitter. I don’t do gimmicks, and I try to source locally when I can,” said Sinclair. As far as the future goes for Sinclair, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. She’s constantly thinking about new products to try, such as creams for maturing skin and even bath bombs for toilets, and the idea of owning a shop of her own always lingers in her mind. But for now, her business will continue to be bright and bubbly.

etal artist Brock Davis started welding in high school and is now making his dreams of bringing his artistic side to life a reality.

By Erica Rapp Photos by Hillary Ehlen

HANDMADE LIST: ӽӽ “Anything involving metal.” ӽӽ Custom metal-work/ commission pieces ӽӽ Signage ӽӽ Furniture legs and pieces

ӽӽ Sculptures and art ӽӽ Fire pits/fire rings ӽӽ Brackets ӽӽ Clocks ӽӽ Shelving/storage ӽӽ Tools ӽӽ Light fixtures

Born and raised in Dickinson,

North Dakota, Davis had spent much of his professional career welding out in the oil fields before moving his family to Fargo in 2015. Despite having a welding job in a new city, creating art was always in the back of his mind. Davis started his fulltime company, Davis Designs, less than a year ago in February 2017. “When we moved to Fargo, the job that I was at wasn’t really going anywhere for me, so I took the plunge because I said, ‘What’s it gonna hurt?’” said Davis. “It was getting a little overwhelming trying to have a job and do creative projects on the side and still find time for family. I just had to commit to it to see where it would go.” His list of skills and abilities is hard to pinpoint because he’ll tell you that he can “really do anything with metal.” It might be furniture pieces, lighting, signage, benches, home décor, commission projects and anything in between, but what he really loves to create is sculptures of all sizes and shapes. Being able to express himself through his artwork was what he’s wanted to do all along, and

that’s exactly why he took the steps to pursue Davis Designs full-time. “I pretty much just see these creations in my head and try to bring them to life. I don’t know how it happens really, but this is how I express myself,” said Davis. “And I always want to bring other people’s ideas to life. I can really do anything with metal. It’s hard to describe the business as, 'Well, we just do sculptures,' because it’s more than that. It’s brackets, lights and the manufacturing side of it… anything metal, basically.” Equipped with a specialty CNC Plasma Table and plenty of welding gear, Davis currently makes everything out of his garage in South Fargo. But he knows that the near future will require him to find a bigger shop space to make his art larger than life. Aside from doing commissioned work, you can find Davis’ pieces at The Red Silo in Downtown Fargo and through Dakota Timber, but he also sells through his website. As far as the future goes for Davis, his business is new, thriving and he’s “up for anything.”

The Ring Leader AEROW Handmade

hortly after getting married in 2014, Lexie Rundquist discovered a sharpened focus for her handmade jewelry business, propelling her towards a statement-piecestyle and passion for natural forms.

By Ethan Mickelson Photos by Hillary Ehlen

HANDMADE LIST: ӽӽ Rings ӽӽ Necklaces ӽӽ Earrings ӽӽ Custom Designs

Using her initials in combination

with "original work," Rundquist rebranded her business to AEROW. After discovering a technique called electro-forming while up late exploring the world of internet crafters, she taught herself by trial and error how to transfer copper molecule-bymolecule to a conductive surface. "Right after I started electro-forming and rebranded I just found my purpose," said Rundquist. "I felt like this is what I was meant to do. I really feel happy when I'm doing this, so being happy and motivated behind something, people can see that." Born to a family of artists, Rundquist shared in the joy of creating with her sisters from a young age. While creativity was always an important facet of her life, it wasn't until college when she realized she could make most of the accessories she was seeing in stores. With the help of her sister Chelsea Thorson, Rundquist set up her first Etsy shop in 2010. Since then, she's thrown out the rule book when it comes to redefining her style and designing loud pieces that make a lasting impression. "I think for a really long time I was creating based on my ideal customer, and this past year I've decided to go away from that because I feel like if I'm creating for myself, people will naturally find an interest in it," said Rundquist. "Even if it doesn't sell right away, there are some pieces that I've held onto for a while that haven't found a home yet, but I feel like those are a true part of myself. I'd rather focus on something that's unique and one-of-a-kind."

While her designs are known for utilizing organic forms and traditional techniques, like the ancient art of Japanese braiding called Kumihimo, she's also harnessing the potential of technology to connect with customers and collaborate with other creators, stating, "It's completely different now than if I were doing the same thing 20 years ago." Like Etsy and her website, Instagram has been another tool Rundquist uses to market her brand and connect with people who inspire her. In fact, Instagram was the source of a connection that will bring AEROW national coverage on the Netflix series "Grace and Frankie." "I sent a box of my jewelry to the costume designer and my jewelry is going to be on the next season," she said. "It doesn't feel real yet! It all started when I tagged her in one of my photos on Instagram and within a minute-and-a-half she messaged me and said, 'Send me your stuff.' Then she messaged me as she was dressing Lily Tomlin, Frankie's character, for the day and said, 'Lily loves your rings.'"

rubber boots inside just kicking it," said Rundquist. "So I've always been one of those people who wears crazy outfits since I could dress myself." Working out of the new studio and retail space at 17 8th St. S, as a part of Make Room, Rundquist designs a wide variety of pieces featuring gems, crystals and found glass. In addition to her one-of-a-kind designs, she also welcomes commissioned pieces inspired by stones that customers want set in a unique accessory like no other. AEROW designs can also be purchased at Unglued in Fargo, Kindred People in Alexandria and Make Room following it's new location debut in the fall.

With a similar style to Tomlin's character on "Grace and Frankie," Rundquist's free-spirited style was a natural fit for Frankie's bohemian aesthetic. At it's heart, AEROW's compelling peculiarity is a lifelong development that's always been a part of Rundquist. "There's a baby photo of me where I have sunglasses on and

Finnu Designs

ust like the reclaimed wood used to build their handmade furniture, the unique story of how Josh Humble started Finnu Designs is deeply rooted in a lifetime of influences.

By Ethan Mickelson Photos by Hillary Ehlen

Reclaimed Renegade


HANDMADE LIST: ӽӽ Scandinavian-inspired ӽӽ Chairs and benches custom furniture ӽӽ Tables, desks and bars ӽӽ Barn doors ӽӽ Accent wall paneling

Starting Finnu Designs out

of his garage two-and-a-half years ago, Humble began building intricate barn doors with a collage of weathered wood fit together like a puzzle. While the business has grown tremendously in the last few years, the idea behind Finnu Designs was first planted when Humble was a kid. "My grandfather used to take me with to his little wood shop and show me how to build little things. He was such a cool guy and so patient with me," said Humble. "Finnu was really inspired by my grandfather. I knew I wanted something Scandinavian and inspired by that experience."

a majority of what we do is all customand we've pushed the limits every single time. We started off with the idea that we wanted to do stuff that's made with amazing quality, so a lot of our stuff is expensive. However, we're beginning to figure out ways to drive the price down." But even as they broaden their consumer base into more manufacturable pieces, Finnu maintains a focus on the timeless appeal of handmade products, mixing the natural patina of reclaimed wood with fresh perspectives on comfort and design.

"There's one thing that's for sure, it will never be like anybody else's," said Humble. "Even if the design is the same, the surface of the wood is always going to be different and unique to its own. That's why we like reclaimed wood."

finnudesigns.com Facebook: finnu2014 Instagram: @finnu_designs

With streamlined angles and a modern approach, the combination of rustic beams and contemporary lines opened up a world of possibilities for Humble as he advanced his craft. "One barn door led into a table, a table led into coffee tables and now we're getting into chair design," said Humble.

h A a hh, this T porridge is just right!

By Eric Watson Photo by Hillary Ehlen

42 | OCTOBER 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

he subtle art of marketing unique food items is alive and well in restaurants across the country, especially in the Midwest. I’ve struggled for years now to find effective ways to promote items that possibly sound unappealing to the masses. Polenta is the perfect example of a food that requires some form of literary enhancement in order for folks, unfamiliar


SERVES 4-6

popular dish with Midwesterners, but it outdoes porridge any day. Like many foods, I find that when someone allows me the opportunity to serve them polenta for the first time, they are sold. They never knew they could love porridge so much! It’s so creamy and delicious, not to mention it’s just about the least expensive food you can imagine. Polenta consists of cornmeal, liquid and a fat of some sort. I like to start by sautéing a little shallot. I dust the pan with a pinch of dry oregano and then deglaze the pan with a dry white wine. I add some chicken stock and some heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Add some coarse ground cornmeal and simmer or bake until a creamy texture is achieved. Honestly, it’s a bit more involved than I’m making it sound. Make sure you read the recipe directions and fully understand the proper liquid to cornmeal ratios and techniques.

with the dish, to want to order it. After all, polenta is technically an Italian porridge. Porridge! Not the most appealing culinary description, really. What is polenta? This is a question that our restaurant staff hears almost every day. How they answer determines whether the dish sells. Rather than refer to it as porridge, we typically compare polenta to creamy grits. Grits aren’t exactly the most

Polenta is neutral in flavor and can be served with just about anything. Seafood, poultry, pork–you name it. Polenta can be served as is, creamy and free-formed, or it can be cooled and cut into a particular shape and pan-fried for a unique texture and presentation. Keep in mind that many grocers sell course ground cornmeal labeled as polenta. This simply refers to the fact that the cornmeal in this package is suitable for making polenta. Cornmeal is cornmeal no matter the coarseness. The finished product is referred to as polenta. Polenta is one of the easiest and most cost-effective dishes you’ll ever make. Convincing someone to try it for the first time? Now that’s a bit more challenging.

Creamy Polenta Ingredients • 2 oz. butter • ½ ea. shallot, minced • 1 tsp. dry Oregano Leaves • ¼ cup dry white wine • 4 cups chicken stock • 1 cup heavy cream • 1 cup corn meal, course ground • Salt and pepper to taste Preparation • Melt one ounce of butter in a medium saucepan. Add shallots and oregano and sauté until shallots are translucent. Deglaze the pan with white wine. Add chicken stock and heavy cream. Bring liquid to a simmer. This is a very important step, the liquid must be simmering before cornmeal is added. • Slowly add cornmeal to the liquid, stirring constantly and quickly as to not create lumps. Bring the polenta to a simmer. Be careful, because it will bubble and shoot hot polenta toward you. • Remove the pan from the heat. Place a tight-fitting lid on top or tightly cover with aluminum foil and place in a 300-degree oven. Bake for approximately 30 minutes (but stir the mixture every 10 minutes). Once the polenta is removed from the oven, stir in the remaining one ounce of butter. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with freshly shaved parmesan and any additional ingredients you may wish to add.

THINK GLOBAL ACT LOCAL

1. Mindset

Collegiate years are meant to experiment with new, unexplored terrains of your life, therefore maximizing your time. Be bold, be curious, join clubs on campus if you like them or make new ones that others will join. These are the safest and best years because there is less at stake than in the “real world." Explore, discover, fail and fail again, but learn from these failures that I call "postponed victories."

My (Collegiate) Graduation Year

By Alex Cyusa Photo by Hillary Ehlen

Tool Box

A

mbitious freshmen, proactive sophomores, lucid juniors and alerted seniors: Allow me to interrupt your chaotically organized lives to share with you six vital life tools for your collegiate survival kit. Caution: This kit will help you surf on the waves of your collegiate years so that you can smoothly make it to the shores of this far, yet close nebulous new land called (drum-roll with Darth Vader's theme song playing) "The real world."

One of my heroes, Nelson Mandela, once said, “I never fail, I either win or learn.” Selfassess permanently by making sure to walk around with this mirror of life that holds you in check. Have the abundance and not the scarcity mindset. Think big, knowing you are one email away from anyone you want to meet in this globalized, WiFi-connected world we live in. Think of the people between you and whomever you want to meet, then start planning with paper on how and where you will meet this person. Smart phones are more powerful than the 1969 rocket that landed on the moon. Imagine all the magic that you have handy, so whatever you decide to kick-start will first be in your pocket. In a 4G LTE-paced world, staying afloat can be a real hassle, however, if you nurture the right adaptive tool mindset, the sky is the limit.

Originally from Kigali, Rwanda, Cyusa has lived in Switzerland, Ethiopia, Guinea and France. His traveling experiences have helped him in making this world a smaller and simpler place to live in. He currently works for Folkways and is interested in community development and nurturing global citizenship. 44 | OCTOBER 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


2. Mentors

Seek out mentors on campus and off campus in a myriad of domains that interest you and will help you attain higher goals. You no longer have that organic “hometown” social capital, therefore you must create your own. This can be a professor, a supervisor, parent of friends, alumni, a coach, a spiritual leader–someone who can hold you accountable, expose you to opportunities, tap into your full potential and with whom you can build a lifelong relationship.

3. Internships

This is one of the best ways to get your foot in the door and make sure that you can gain so much exposure from good companies. Always remember that openings in any given company usually happen first internally. This means by already being in the company (even if you are just an intern), the chances are that you will be among the first to hear about them.

5. "Know Thy Self"

4. Volunteer

This is a character-builder and a great way to meet people that are like-minded. Often, professionals that care enough to give up their precious time for a noble cause will most likely have some extra time to take a driven student under their wing. What’s more, always know that it’s a friendlier platform to have an informal interview with your potential future employer.

If you look up on the world wide web, "Strength Finder," you'll find a great book and tool to better assess the different components of yourself in an intelligible way. The better you know what you can and cannot do, what areas you should improve upon and what areas you should reinforce, the faster you will advance in life. Knowing the appropriate jargon to utilize when describing oneself without quoting your parents, siblings or significant other makes it more professional in an interview or business casual encounters. You should have your "30-second elevated pitch" ready and a lifelong goal you want to achieve that keeps you motivated. The latter will help you answer the seemingly inoffensive milliondollar question: What are your plans after graduation? Voilà! This is my tri-collegiate community salute to you. I hope that you will add some of these tools to your personal toolbox and share it with others. Sharing is caring.

6. Community Engagement

A mentor once told me that who you know is no longer sufficient, but rather who wants to know you. This mind shift for me was paramount! He urged me to nurture a magnetic personality around serving others first, showing up for others, being a team player, always being grateful of people’s precious time, self-discipline in life and remaining humble. I can ensure you that when a good reputation precedes you, it lays solid foundations for all the awaiting professional encounters you will make. Scholarly yours,

Q&A WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT WORKING HERE?

“I get paid to hang out in a bar and bullsh*t with everybody. It’s like I get to basically be everybody’s drinking buddy. A lot of great contacts and relationships have been built here for me.”

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT WHAT YOU LIKE TO WORK WITH MOST WHEN IT COMES TO SPIRITS?

“Personally, I drink cheap beer and good whiskey. But this is a cognac drink, and I think there is a resurgence of cognac drinkers. When I started, I would maybe do one a month. Now I’m going through two or three bottles a week and I think that’s really changed in the last year and a half.”

ARE THERE ANY TRENDS IN BARTENDING OR MIXOLOGY THAT YOU’VE NOTICED RECENTLY?

Microbrews are still huge and I don’t see that ever changing anytime soon. There has been more of a turn toward craft cocktails for sure, but that’s not totally my world. I’m more of a volume bartender. But if you tell me what you want, I can make it for you. I come across a lot of different ingredients and recipes that way.”

WHAT’S A PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’D GIVE TO SOMEONE GETTING STARTED IN THE BARTENDING INDUSTRY?

“Practice. Get an empty bottle and pour shots. It doesn’t matter if there is liquid in it or not. Get your pour count to where it needs to be. In craft cocktails, I know they say that consistency is key and I think that’s true in a lot of forms of life. Be consistent. In craft cocktails they measure carefully, but in the style of bartending that I do, it’s mostly free-pour so you’re count has to be on. And talk to people. You can always find out what people like just by talking to them a little bit.”

“FRISCO SUNSET” • 1 ½ oz. Courvoisier Cognac • 1 ½ oz. Disaronno Liqueur • Splash of Finest Call Lime Juice • Splash of Cranberry Juice Simply use a rocks glass and build the liquids over ice. Garnish with lemon and lime.

Cheese & Wine Pairings

“In a world full of trends, I want to be a classic.� ~ Iman

W By Nikki Berglund Photos by Hillary Ehlen

48 | OCTOBER 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

hen it comes to cheese and wine pairing, there is so much going on these days that choosing the right combinations can get downright intimidating. There are not only entire books written on the subject, but Googling it will get you so turned around that you might

just decide to break out the can of Easy Cheese and a box of Ritz crackers. So where do you start? As someone who has been studying up on these things for a good chunk of my life now, I have found that when all is said and done, most often the best pairings are the simple, classic ones that never go out of style.


In this article, I tweaked the pairings just a bit in order to make them a little more affordable, attainable and as unintimidating as possible. So here are a few classic(ish) options to start you on your way.

Nikki Berglund is a Fargo native and the owner of Luna Fargo, a local neighborhood restaurant specializing in casual upscale comfort food using fresh and local flavors and ingredients whenever possible. She is also the third generation to operate her family liquor store, Bernie’s Wines and Liquors. She has passed her Level One Sommelier Certification with the intention of becoming a Level Two Certified Sommelier in the near future. She is also currently studying to become a Certified Cheese Professional, aka a "cheese monger."

Terre di Marca Prosecco & Sarvecchio Parmesan The classic version of this pairing is Champagne and parmesan, but who’s keeping track? This organic Prosecco is a nice sparkling option because the quality is high but it won’t break the bank the way a bottle of French Champagne might. Sparkling wine and parmesan cheese are really beautiful together. The bubbles of the wine cut through the saltiness of the cheese, creating a match made in heaven. P.S. If you want to spend the extra bucks on that bottle of French wine, go for it, we won’t judge. 1

Roth Grand Cru Surchoix Gruyere & Talbott Kali Hard Chardonnay Classically, this Alpine-style cheese comes from Switzerland, but this version comes straight from our Midwestern friend Wisconsin. This world-renowned cheese is something special and has won many an award to prove it. The Chardonnay is a classic California style with just the right amount of butter and fruit notes to compliment the nutty and sweetness of the cheese. 2

Roomano Pradera 4 Year Aged Gouda & Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon Back when people started to get really fancy with their cheese and wine pairing, a nice aged Gouda would be classically paired with a French Bordeaux. This French wine–traditionally a blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grapes–is amazing, expensive and not the easiest to get your hands on. The rich, fullbodied Cabernet, on the other hand, can be found at any of your local wine shops for a fraction of the price. This aged cheese from the Netherlands, with its slight crunch and nuttiness, perfectly complements the richness of the wine. Try taking a little bite of the cheese, then take a taste of the wine and mingle the two together in your mouth. You will thank me later. 3


4

So there you have it, folks, a few classic pairings to set you on the right path without scaring the crap out of you. Confession: I was at a party recently where they served Easy Cheese in the can…and it was amazing!

St. Pete’s Blue Cheese & Dow 10 Year Tawny Port When I think of this most classic of cheese and wine pairings, it’s only right to reference my friend and cheese mentor Peter Kelly, who played an integral part in the transformation of the Luna cheese case. He also insisted that we carry a nice selection of Ports for this pairing specifically. You can think you don’t like blue cheese, and you can think you don’t like Port, but this pairing is otherworldly. The saltiness of the cheese paired with the sweetness of the Port results in what is considered one of the great food and wine pairings of the world. Traditionally, the pairing calls for Stilton and Vintage Port but for a beginner, this classic English cheese is pretty hardcore. The St. Pete’s Blue is a milder version and is made in Faribault, Minnesota, which makes it extra cool. 4

a guide to

pressure points

eliminating pesky

Pains & aches Got pesky pains and aches?

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t? And while sometimes these most definitely need professional help and assistance to eliminate, some can be minimized or worked out just by spending a little time digging into certain spots called trigger and acupuncture points. Trigger points can help alleviate an array of things from headaches to digestive issues to those annoying aches and pains. The trick is knowing where these specific points are and how to use pressure to aid in those unpleasant twinges. Licensed massage therapist, reflexologist and certified craniosacral therapist, Katie Karn, shares how to find these points, how to efficiently apply pressure and essentially how to help minimize or relieve the pressure causing issues within the body. Read on to find out how to find some relief from headaches, digestive issues, hip pain, “runners knee” and heel pain.

BIO

BY Kylee Seifert PHOTOS BY Hillary Ehlen

According to Karn, these are some important tips to adhere to for successful trigger point application: • Find the trigger/acupressure point. • Hold pressure at 5/10 on the pain scale. Note that sometimes with these acupressure points, you must start at even lighter on the pain scale. • Wait for the tissue to release. You can feel it soften under your skin or you’ll begin to feel a decrease in the pain referral pattern. • Once the tissue releases and the referral starts to dissipate, either go deeper into the tissue or move on and look for other trigger points in the area. • Once the trigger points have been deactivated and “order has been restored to the muscle,” you can go ahead and roll the muscle out to promote some blood flow to the area, stretch the tissue (if it’s a muscle that needs stretching) and strengthen the tissue if necessary. Note that using tools such as golf balls, tennis balls, a foam roller or lacrosse balls are great to use when massaging these trigger points.

1 Thumb/LI4 (Large Intestine 4)-On This point is great for aiding in headache relief and digestive issues. Press on the “meaty” part of your hand between the thumb and pointer finger. According to Karn, this point should be avoided if pregnant, as it has been known to induce early labor.

2 Occipitals Another word for the muscles in the back of the head, these guys will often cause irritable pain up toward the eyes and brow line. If you find this to be tight, Karn suggests placing two tennis balls into the bottom of a sock, tying it, placing the tool at the base of the skull and then relaxing on top of the homemade tool for relief.

3 Stomach 25 Suffering from constipation, diarrhea or any other intestinal discomfort? “Place two to three fingers parallel and alongside the center of the belly button. The point is at the edge of the last finger, three fingers away from the center of the belly button,” explained Karn. She goes on to mention, “Stimulating ST-25 also moves abdominal blood and can alleviate menstrual irregularities.”

Glute Medius This trigger point is located on the outer, upper area of the hip. Using a lacrosse ball or foam roller is especially effective in alleviating lower back pain or pain associated with the knee. 5

Quadratus Plantae Often the culprit for heel pain, this trigger point can be found on the bottom of the foot, directly above the heel. When it’s tight, it often causes uncomfortable heel pain. Karn says that it’s easy to find and work on in the morning or evening. 4

, R E , B R O E T B C O O T LLAASSTT OC West Fargo’s Bonanzaville began giving ghost tours of their pioneer village and museum that includes 43 historic buildings. On one of the tours, a person showed special events coordinator Missy Warren a photo they took inside the Houston House.

he person’s great-grandmother had died in one of the beds in the house and every time a family member visits the village, they take a picture inside the house. But this particular photo had something stand out: an unusual orb in the corner. Stories like this are nothing new at Bonanzaville. And that’s why it has brought back the ghost tours for year two and added a new paranormal investigations tour. The six ghost tours

sold out in less than 24 hours last year. This year, there will be three ghost tours on every Saturday night in October, and the paranormal investigations are held every Friday. “You’re definitely going to find something out here,” Warren said. “I was not a big believer in most of the things people were telling me when I first started working here. But I’m here to tell you there’s definitely things moving around this village.”

The Tours

The two tours offer different experiences. The ghost tour is more of a storytelling experience for groups no bigger than 12 people. “We take actual historical events that have happened here and we take them through our village using that story for our basis of the tour,” said Kaci Johnson, a curator at Bonanzaville. The paranormal investigations are more intimate with an expedition in groups of six. You are given equipment and do the investigating yourself in the Brass Rail Saloon, the Houston House and the church. A staff member is there to supervise, but groups are free to investigate on their own.

The Equipment

While attendees are permitted to bring their own approved equipment, each person will be provided an EMF detector and voice box/spirit box.

“I was not a big believer in most of the things people were telling me when I first started working here. But I’m here to tell you there’s definitely things moving around this village.” The theory behind the voice box is that an entity will use the radio frequencies to project their voice. The box cycles through FM and AM radio frequencies very quickly, so quickly you can’t pick out a distinct station. But sometimes you'll catch bursts of words or short phrases like "murder," "mother" or even someone’s name. An EMF detector measures electromagnetic fields. Their legitimate purpose is to measure waves from microwaves and similar appliances. However, the theory is that a ghost or a paranormal entity will harness the energy around them and you’ll get a reading if something is appearing. That’s why it's


important for phones to be on airplane mode during the tours. And it’s also important to make sure the buildings don't have electricity. Conveniently, a majority of the Bonanzaville buildings don’t have power. “Just so everyone knows, because I know the question will be brought up when we go to the Houston House, there is power in that house,” Warren said. “We will cut all the power to the houses and we’ll actually show them we have readings because we have electricity. We’re going to cut the breakers and now we don’t have anything. That way people know there won’t be any false readings.”

BONANZAVILLE

1351 Main Ave. W, West Fargo bonanzaville.org For reservations, call Bonanzaville at 701-282-2822. Space is limited and will be on a first-come, firstserve basis. Paranormal Investigations: Every Friday in October at 7 p.m. $50 per person for 90-minute investigation. Ghost Tours: Every Saturday in October at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. $25 per person for a 45-minute tour.

hen you think of the word "innovative," what topics come to mind? One would guess that words such as "non-profit," "philanthropy," "social change" and "homelessness" may not be at the top of the list. But here in our community, your local United Way is taking an innovative approach to the longstanding issue of homelessness. Thanks to support from our community, a newly formed team of housing navigators is changing the way people, organizations and systems work together when it comes to helping people like Dewayne.

When I arrived at Dewayne’s apartment this summer, he was brimming with pride as he gave us a tour of his small home. The last stop was the kitchen, where he pointed out a calendar with his work schedule, goals and upcoming visitations with his son. As I listened to him talk about his goals to further his career and earn a college degree, it was hard to imagine that just one year ago, Dewayne was homeless and arrested for panhandling on a street corner in Fargo with nowhere to go, no home, no job and just the clothes on his back. “I’d lost everything. I didn’t have any hope. I had given up,” he said. Earlier that year, Dewayne and his life partner, Lisa, gave birth to a baby boy. After working toward overcoming

Dewayne talks with his housing navigator, Amber Larson. One year ago, Dewayne was trapped in the cycle of homelessness and staying in shelters and sleeping on the streets of Fargo. Thanks to United Way donors, there are now a team of housing navigators like Larson working with chronically homeless individuals like Dewayne.

alcoholism and addiction, over Thanksgiving they relapsed and were arrested on suspicion of child neglect. Days after the arrest, Lisa suffered a medical emergency that left her on life support before passing away in December. Not only had Dewayne lost his life partner, but also custody of his 2-month-old son. “Once you lose everything, you lose hope. But I wanted my son back. That was the most important thing,” said Dewayne. When Dewayne got out of jail, like many individuals in our community, he fell back into the same cycle of homelessness and addiction–staying in shelters, passing out on the sidewalks of Fargo and waking up in the emergency room, until one day he woke up and Amber Larson, a housing navigator, was standing over him. “When I began working with Dewayne, I had to literally pick him up off of the street. He said to me, ‘I can’t believe you came here.’ That is what people need– connection to the community. They need to know someone will be there for them,” said Larson. That is exactly what United Way and the housing navigators are providing. Thanks to United Way, housing navigators like Larson are now working every day in our community to provide support to those who are chronically homeless with a goal 59

of helping them to remove the barriers to attaining and retaining stable housing. “When people like Dewayne have a stable home and their basic needs are met, they can move out of crisis mode and move their life forward,” said Larson. And that is exactly what Dewayne is doing. When I met with Dewayne and his housing navigator recently, our meeting ended with him carrying donations of toys and baby clothes to his car as he excitedly told me that he is close to regaining custody of his son and that his job is going well. While we as human beings care deeply about seeing people like Dewayne be successful and break free from that cycle of homelessness, it is much more than doing the right thing as a community– it affects all of us as taxpayers and impacts the economic well-being of our community.

Dewayne at the United Way office this summer with United Way team member, Kristina Hein.

in remaining optimistic and she quickly said empathy. Empathy has the ability to bring our community together to continue to support solutions to homelessness that are working–like housing navigation.

Jesseca White, a downtown resource officer with the Fargo Police Department, sees first-hand the impact of United Way’s new investment in housing navigators and describes it through an individual named “Timothy.” “When Timothy was homeless, we [police officers] dealt with him hundreds of times in one year. After Timothy was housed, we dealt with him less than 30 times per year—think about the cost savings to our community,” said White.

United Way is focused on changing the way we address challenging issues like homelessness, hunger, poverty and mental health. We’re bringing the right partners together to tackle the source and root cause, not just the symptoms. We are asking the community to “be a force for good.” "For good” means that we not only want to make a positive impact, but we want to solve issues like homelessness permanently.

Having housing navigators available in our community means we are seeing a reduction in shelter stays, detox visits, police calls and emergency room visits— and United Way is measuring the impact.

Thanks to Larson, Dewayne’s life has been changed for good. The impact of a housing navigator goes beyond the people they help. Today, Dewayne is a successful member of our community, a part of our workforce, and is destined to achieve his goal of being a good example for his son. He is a “force for good” that impacts us all.

What is Housing First? Housing First is an approach that prioritizes providing permanent housing to people experiencing homelessness, thus ending their homelessness and serving as a platform from which they can pursue personal goals and improve their quality of life. This approach is guided by the belief that people need basic necessities like food and a place to live before they can be successful in getting a job, budgeting properly or attending to substance use issues. How is Housing First different from other approaches? Housing First does not require people experiencing homelessness to address all of their problems or to graduate through a series of service programs before they can access housing. The Housing First approach views housing as the foundation for life improvement and enables access to permanent housing without prerequisites or conditions beyond those of a typical renter. Housing navigators offer supportive services to help people with housing stability and individual well-being

so they can obtain and retain housing. Does Housing First Work? Housing First is cost-efficient. When housing navigators provide access to housing, this results in cost savings for communities because housed people are less likely to use emergency services, hospitals, jails and emergency shelters than those who are homeless. One study found an average cost savings on emergency services of $31,545 per person housed in a Housing First program over the course of two years. In our local community, after housing navigators provided services to two individuals, after six months they reported more than $37,000 in cost savings to our community because of decreased service utilization.
