THE

SEASONAL SHIFT

I'm not sure if I can narrow down just one best thing about fall, and it shows in this month's magazine. From seasonal food and drinks to fall festivities and ghost stories, the season has it all. I will admit, I went a little out of my comfort zone for some of the spooky features, as I am usually more of a "Casper the Friendly Ghost" than a "Chucky" fan, but the adventure was well worth it. Besides the paranormal activity I discovered, I was pleasantly surprised to also discover the variety of fallcentric celebrations the community has to offer. From countless pumpkin patches to various Halloween events, appealing to both families and just adults, there really is something for everybody. I am partial as autumn is my favorite season, but there's

quite a lot to do before we all buckle down for the winter, and I'd say we have some great opportunities to do it over the next month. And, of course, I wouldn't feel right if I didn't encourage everyone to admire the beautiful changing of leaves at least once in the coming weeks. There's really nothing like the reds, browns, oranges and greens along the Red River. Whether it's the colors, the crisp air, comfort in knowing the season always brings a steady shift in one way or another, or something else entirely, there's always a bit of nostalgia surrounding this time of year for me—and I've decided to embrace it. Maybe I'll bake a homemade pie, finally decorate my home with pumpkin decor or rake a pile of leaves and jump into it... or maybe I'll just

appreciate the season with loved ones. However it looks, I hope you can celebrate fall too.

So, before we're crunching snow under our shoes, make sure to spend some time crunching fallen leaves too. Happy fall, and happy reading!

14 | OCTOBER 2022 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

There are many spots around the FM area rumored to be haunted… but rumors are rumors until you experience them for yourself. So we did just that.

Throughout September, the Editorial Team explored two of the most supposedly haunted places in town. And what did we find? Well, you’ll just have to read and see!

15

The Truth About

Trollwood

In the late 1800s the Cass County Hospital and Poor Farm was built at the location of today’s park. According to multiple records, this operation housed the sick who couldn’t afford another hospitalization and a mental asylum, a large quality of its residents being children. The hospital eventually closed down in the 1960s, serving a few years as Golden Acres Haven nursing home before it officially closed and the land became the Fargo Park District’s property, leaving behind multiple cemeteries with many children and other residents buried in unmarked graves.

In the years since the hospital building was torn down, due to natural erosion, there have been bones and coffins uprooted and washed into the park. In an effort to respect the remains of those buried there, the three cemeteries are marked and are still there today. When they began, we don’t know, but rumors began floating around about

whispers from the farmland, of a woman in a blue dress dancing by the willow trees, or of children’s spirits roaming the park; so we checked it out.

Editor’s Experience

A few members of our editorial team visited Trollwood Park for a few hours after sunset to see if we could spot anything paranormal. Now, we aren’t experts by any means, but we are a curious bunch. Upon arriving, we decided to take a walk throughout the park to get a feel for the land and to make our presence known to anything else that might be hanging around the park.

The first hour or so was spent exploring the trail, the wooden bridge and, of course, the willow trees. We spent time around two areas, first the willow tree and blue bench along the northern edge of the trail and then at the group of willow trees and yellow bench at the

seen dancing around the willow tree you see pictured here after midnight.

history? At some point after spotting the rock marking the cemetery, we decided we would take a break and began walking back to the main park area. It was at this point that I saw something in the distance.

A short, round-ish figure ran across the play equipment area, so quick that I thought there were kids playing at

the park. But it was nearing 10:30 pm, and we didn’t hear anything. Not wanting to admit that their may have been something from another plane than ours, I tried not to give it much thought. The rest of the night was spent walking through the willow trees and making an attempt to find something substantial for the story. Eventually, we made our

I didn’t think much of the shadows at the park until I met Kristen Nelson.

Community Experience

Kristin Nelson has always had an interest in the paranormal, and moreso history, but her interest never went beyond curiosity and into experience; until she visited Trollwood Park with a friend who claimed to be a medium.

Note: A medium is someone who claims to have a connection with spirits, energies or whatever otherwise referenced. They often say that the spirit can communicate

through them by showing themselves or speaking to the medium!

Kristin, a few friends, and her daughter, Alex, had spent some time at the park in the evening when her friend who was a medium told her that she could see two young children running around and playing with her daughter.

Pictured here is a rock marking the cemetery that was previously unmarked at Trollwood.

“She was saying that Alex was playing with a little girl and a little boy, the little girl had pigtails and the little boy had a loose tooth,” Kristin explained. “I think she said [they were] six or seven. Knowing that there were kids buried here, we always try to be really respectful, nice and sweet. Obviously, we're encroaching on their space because they’ve been here for over one hundred years.”

Alex was around two years old at the time, so she doesn’t remember “playing” with the children, but she does remember the park. And Kristin remembers seeing what she

thinks were the children as they were getting ready to go.

“They were small and they were kind of like a little shadow-like blob running from those [willow] trees all the way over [to the park]. We had been told before that they like to hang out over [by the trees] and go to the playground to play,” Kristin explained. “So, we said goodbye to them [at the trees], they knew we were leaving, so they left ahead of us [to the park]. We left right after that.”

When meeting with Kristin, there was no mention from me of the

small, dark shadow I saw at the park, but instead a story of the same small, dark shadows she saw when they were leaving. I had a gut feeling we had seen the same kids playing at the park.

Kristin made sure to reiterate that this experience, while maybe a bit of a thrill, was not one that made her or her daughter feel unsafe or unwanted at the moment. Fueled by her passion for the history of the land and the people who spent time there, she said she made sure it was known that she respected the environment and those in it while visiting.

To Conclude

After our experience at Trollwood and hearing Kristin’s explanation of hers, I personally found a lot of similarities. The feeling of anticipation and adrenaline may have come across as fear at the moment, but there was also a sense of innocent curiosity. Other than the general fear of being in a park, at night, with no lights around us, there wasn’t really a

This is not a scary place. This is not someplace where people can't be, just be here respectfully.” -Kristin Nelson

WHAT’S HIDING IN WELD? WHAT’S HIDING IN WELD?

We decided to connect with Professor Kevin Zepper, an English professor of around 20 years at MSUM, and someone who has spent many years inside Weld Hall. We met inside Glasrud Auditorium where MSUM’s most haunted story was born, by a rumor of a death.

“When you come to campus, this building is the odd one out, it just is. By default, there's something odd about this building, because it's turn-of-the-century architecture, right? It looks like a little castle, right? I think there's the expectation that because something is old, it has something else to it. I'm the same way, I see something old and I’m thinking, ‘Well, God, that place has stories to tell.’ And perhaps that's where we have to start,” Zepper said. “When we look at something old, it starts

22 | OCTOBER 2022 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

to get a little bit of a patina to it, in terms of old things, like this building, we have to think, ‘did something happen there? Did somebody get murdered? Did a bad thing happen there?’ Not to get too philosophical with you, but that's the way I approached this building. There is almost the belief that we would want to have something happen here.”

There are multiple accounts of what might have happened inside the ancient walls of the auditorium. Some sources say someone fell from the scaffolding, ending in a tragic death. Similar to the scaffolding story, there was a rumor about the “secret staircase” being the spot of a life-ending fall. From the scaffolding or the stairwell tragedy, or from some other reminisce of energy, there have also been reports of bright “orbs” floating on and around the stage in the auditorium.

The two winding staircases on either side of the back of the stage, are steep, and mostly out of service today, but hold a lot of history. One is completely closed off, and the other is locked. Fortunately for us, we were able to call on one more to add to our team of amateur ghost hunters. Campus Security Officer Brodigan Morton not only let us through the doors but let us in on his experiences at MSUM.

Officer Brodigan Morton was a theater student and a lighting tech, so he spent many hours in the auditorium, specifically on the scaffolding and working with the lighting. Those years, in addition to the seven he’s been with Public Safety, he has had his own fair share of unexplained experiences while doing building checks around Weld.

“[I would experience] the typical stuff. I’m working at two o'clock in the morning as the only person in the building, and then I hear doors close in the hallway and there's nobody here and the lights are off. They're motion and sound-activated and the lights are completely off,” he said.

“[I would hear] doors closing and conversations from down the hall, nothing decipherable, but definitely the distant sound of voices. Out of curiosity, I've gone back to see if anybody scanned in with a key fob, and no, door logs. All the offices are locked and the lights are off.”

Professor Zepper, while not having experienced any of these exact encounters himself, believes that with such a long history, there is bound to be some truth behind the rumors that circulate the hall. As far as those rumors holding some paranormal grounding—he took this opportunity with our team to find out.

23

THE STAGE

We first visited the stage itself. We saw the infamous scaffolding hanging from the ceiling. The chains above a reminder of the violent rumors of the auditorium, the weathered floor a reminder of the many who performed here before us, and even the thick red curtain a reminder of the dramatics of the whole area. The entire auditorium, if not the entire building, holds a sense of mystery that draws out curiosity, be it for ghosts or just history.

THE STAIRS

On the right-hand side of the stage, in the back, there is a winding stairwell. Peering over the railing, it seems like the stairs go on forever, and looking up is like looking into the tallest tower in a castle. The ancient walls are covered with names, quotes and scribbles from the past 50 years. How they balanced themselves to reach up the brick walls on an already thin and tight staircase, we don’t know, but it adds to the mystery.

24 | OCTOBER 2022 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

THE SCENE

The last thing we wanted to try before we came to our conclusion was to try to communicate with anything that might have been there with us. Positioning ourselves in the middle of the auditorium, we shut the lights off and Professor Zepper began explaining why we were there.

After a few minutes of just waiting, a few things happened:

It took us a while to notice between the camera flash and Officer Morton’s flashlight, but

there were light surges in the ceiling lights every so often. We caught the flashes a few times when we confirmed that it was not the camera flash or the flashlight.

2. After we noticed the light surges, we heard a thudding from back behind the stage.

3. The last thing we noticed, although it very well could have been brought on by our anticipation and adrenaline, was a series of chills and shivers as soon as we heard the noises from behind the curtain.

TO CONCLUDE

We asked Professor Zepper whether or not he believes in ghosts.

“That's a really interesting question. I think that there are… How do I put this diplomatically? I think that there are a lot of times that people think there are ghosts, and that can be debunked. There are times that, in so many different shows, so many different sightings, so many different things, they say, ‘I don't have an explanation for it.’ Well, if there’s no direct explanation for it, that it might be, it could very well be. I don't think we have enough things to measure it properly. I've watched all of these [shows], and the things that are most profound to me are the things where they cannot explain it, they can't debunk it. Is it something that we've yet to figure out that we can debunk? Or is it simply, there's something here? Or if a place has all of this energy, whether it's good or bad… Is there just enough of that to rub off, so to speak, to create these things? And then there's the power of belief that's really powerful, you can say whatever you want. So, I think the short answer is yes.”

After our two adventures in the search for the paranormal, our editorial team could confidently say there was something spooky going on at these places; but we weren’t sure we could confidently say whether it was truly ghosts or not. There was one more piece of the puzzle, we had to talk to some experts.

In this spirit of welcoming people back to our community, I wanted to extend a warm welcome to a new member of the FM area whom I was fortunate to meet via a mentor of mine this summer: Dr. Michael Chan joined the Concordia College community in June 2022. Prior to that, he was associate professor of Old Testament at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minn. Dr. Chan joined Luther Seminary after completing his Ph.D. at Emory University and a year of research and teaching at the University of Helsinki. Dr. Chan is a graduate of Luther Seminary (M.A. in biblical theology) and Pacific Lutheran University (B.A. in elementary education).

As the Executive Director for faith and learning, Dr. Chan directs the Lorentzsen and Dovre centers, guides Concordia’s interfaith relationships and oversees the work of Campus Ministry. Please help me extend to him and his family a warm welcome to the Red River Valley! Until we meet again: Skol!

Roots

There are so many ways in which Fargo-Moorhead feels both like a homecoming and a new adventure.

I grew up in Kingman, AZ—a midsized, rural town that is situated along Route 66 and nestled among a cluster of granite-laced mountain ranges. Both sides of my family— one branch from Arkansas and the other from China—settled in this western town for different reasons. But ultimately they all stayed, raised families, and put down deep roots that abide to this very day.

The town was steeped in the good, bad, and the ugly of western mythology—from saloons and rodeos to mineral mines and reservations. It was a moderately-populated watering hole in the punishing heat of the Mohave Desert. Not unlike Fargo-Moorhead, one could get from one end of town to the next in less than 25 minutes. Just a few minutes further, and one could be fully immersed in wild and open public lands. Kingman, like FargoMoorhead, was situated at the border between urban and rural realities.

This young man went even further west in 2000, when I left AZ for

college at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA. The most important thing I found there was Katherine, now my wife of almost 19 years. The second most important thing I found there was a deep appreciation for an open-minded, rigorous liberal arts education. More on that later.

Since then, we’ve moved well over 15 times, living variously in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Minnesota and Helsinki (Finland). We have resided in many places, but we have only ever felt truly settled in a small handful of places. Fargo-Moorhead is quickly becoming one of them.

Responsibilities

Higher education has been my professional home for well over a decade. Most of that time was spent in the classrooms of Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN where I taught Old Testament languages and literature to aspiring pastors and church leaders. Those were deeply meaningful experiences that continue to shape my life and leadership in fundamental ways.

We moved to Fargo-Moorhead, however, after I was offered a position at Concordia College as Executive

THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL
36 | OCTOBER 2022 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Director of Faith and Learning. This offer resonated with an emergent hope to grow as an institutional leader and return to serving undergraduate students again.

Among my responsibilities are the Dovre Center for Faith and Learning, the Lorentzsen Center for Faith and Work, campus ministry and several interfaith initiatives. At first blush, these responsibilities seem disparate and unrelated. But all of them emerge in various ways out of the 500-year-old taproot of the Protestant Reformation, with its entwined commitments to love God and the neighbor.

Hopes

My hopes for our life, our country, and our community are reflected in the Lorentzsen Center’s primary question for the year: How do we build a more trustworthy world? Through public lectures, conversations, and podcasts, we will examine democratic institutions and practices that are both critical and fragile at this moment in our nation’s history (e.g., journalism, economic opportunity, free speech, K-12 education).

Animating this year’s programming is the conviction that democracy is not something that can be taken for granted. One of democracy’s greatest vulnerabilities is the fact that that it requires so much proactive energy and advocacy to make it resilient in the face of harsh headwinds. Democracy

is not a natural form of human organization. Unless each generation articulates afresh the need for democracy and its values, we run the risk of raising children who will look to more convenient—but in the long run more destructive—models of governance.

In a 2020 book titled, A Time to Build: From Family and Community to Congress and the Campus, How Recommitting to Our Institutions Can Revive the American Dream, Yuval Levin argues that we must recommit to building more trustworthy institutions across society—from schools to religious communities, corporations to congress.

As my family gets to know the Fargo-Moorhead area, we are heartened by the resolve of its leaders to build this community into a place of opportunity, wellness and welcome. Like many other American communities, Fargo-Moorhead faces significant and compounding challenges. But as far as I can tell, it is facing those challenges with a vision to create a more trustworthy community.

As teenagers, my friends and I would explore the abandoned school in Argusville.

I think that the top floor of NDSU’s Ceres Hall has to be haunted. It feels really cold up there all the time and has an eerie presence.

Acres of Terror in Leonard, ND will always be the scariest experience for me. Walking through the haunted school gym & going on the bus ride was crazy!

I grew up very close to the San Haven Sanatorium. It's abandoned now and apparently haunted. There are a lot of articles online about the history and claims of how it's haunted. I've never been, but it did always give me the chills when we drove by it.

I went under the gazebo in Island Park with a group of friends as a kid and came back out a different dude. That place is haunted for sure.

A Look Inside the Unpublished Works of an Artist

s an artist myself, I would argue that the only thing more fascinating than an artist's published works is their unpublished works. For an artist, a sketchbook is essentially a diary, an inspiration board and oftentimes simply just a place to jot down an idea. Unfortunately, artists are often their own worst critics, and

for a variety of reasons, certain works remain tucked away in their sketchbooks, not allowed the chance to be properly appreciated for what they are—until now.

Welcome to the first of many artist features, focused solely on sharing exclusive unpolished artworks by local artists.

"I've been known to sketch on anything, even tape or glue things into my sketchbook because I liked them so much," said Knutson, who will make a canvas out of just about anything to draw out ideas. He doesn't necessarily have a fixed method for organizing his ideas and sketches. Rather, he has multiple sketchbooks and will begin drawing wherever he opens one up. For this reason, you'll find drawings in both the front and back of his sketchbooks; there's no specific order for where drawings are placed.

One very interesting element is that each page of sketches evolves over time; Knutson adds new sketches to old ones and continues to build layers and elements. "A [single] sketchbook could last me years because I like to keep adding things to it and changing things," he said.

"A Sketchbook is a living, breathing kind of entity"
46 | OCTOBER 2022 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

"It's a good place to put all my thoughts—but thoughts, I think, come and go in waves and you might have a thought a year ago and then it'll come back to you again and you kind of tweak it. A sketchbook is a living, breathing kind of entity."

Inside this particular sketchbook, Knutson created a variety of prints, experimenting with various techniques. He likes to print images from older TIME magazines and LIFE magazines from the 1950s to use as inspiration. He uses those prints to go back to, draw over and add to.

"It's fun. Things change and evolve all the time and it helps me with my work to just to get ideas out there," he said. "Then I can kind of fine-tune it on the canvas or in a mural."

Knutson likes using toned gray sketch paper, especially to help highlights burst with white pencils. Wherever he goes, his sketchbook goes—and although he'll sit down and draw just about anywhere, he feels most creative and comfortable in his studio space. Funny and lighthearted shows like Rhett and Link's “Good Mythical Morning” also help Knutson stay inspired to create.

Knutson's art style is influenced by a variety of genres, including Trompel'œil, graphic art, architectural and pop art—all of which become very apparent when browsing through his sketchbook.

47

One prominent art technique Knutson enjoys is "gelli" or gelatin prints, which consists of having a plate of gelatin, then applying a really thin coat of anchor paint. Next, you'll place a really highcontrast photo or magazine print on top, apply pressure and evenly rub the print against the plate. When you peel it off, it'll make a transfer. Finally, you let it dry for just a few minutes and repeat the process with another color on top. Not all paper inks work the same and there's a lot of trial and error involved. Regardless, for Knutson, it's been one of his favorite artistic obsessions.

Recently, he has been reconnecting with his teenhood in the late 90s, finding inspiration from magazines he enjoyed as a kid, especially Transworld Skateboarding Magazine. Reconnecting with inspirations from childhood helps Knutson navigate where his art is leading today.

"It's fun because these are the things that I love to do that really don't find the light of day in a gallery," he said.

For Knutson, his sketchbook acts as a sort of "brain dump" to get ideas down that will later re-inspire him to continue to create. Call it an ecosystem of creativity, if you will.

Dr. Matthys Said: Take a Hike

Hans Solberg's

Any football player not named Tom Brady knows time on the gridiron is limited. It, unlike golf or swimming, is not a "lifelong sport" due to its physical nature. Even if one survives the wear and tear of the bruises, nicks and injuries that pile up over a career, most are done after high school. A small percentage of high schoolers every year will go on to play collegiately. However, many will not finish their collegiate careers. And of those that do, only a fractional amount will go on to earn a paycheck playing the sport they love. Hans Solberg, a 2019 graduate, team captain and offensive lineman for the Concordia College Cobbers thought that his time battling in the trenches was done after he graduated. He would find out two years later that he was wrong.

A&E / HEALTH & SPORTS / HOME & DESIGN / FOOD & DRINK / PARENTS + KIDS / BUSINESS / SHOPPING / CAREERS
German Experience An Unlikely Professional Football Story 52 | OCTOBER 2022 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

his spring and summer, Solberg suited up for the Fursty Razorbacks a professional football team located in Fürstenfeldbruck, Germany that competes in the GFL2, the second tier of the German Football League. Again, two years after he played a collegiate snap. That, in and of itself is extremely impressive. The fact that he started every single game for a professional football team after two years off is even more impressive. But how the hell did he get there?

Pre Concordia

Hans Solberg is a self-described "late bloomer" however, nobody can dispute the fact that he grew a full inch during his senior season in high school (he actually tacked on another full inch in college as well). Despite his late progression, Solberg had a strong football resume coming out of high school.

As a freshman at Jordan High School in Jordan, Minnesota, Solberg was a captain and the MVP of the freshman team. In his sophomore season, Solberg was the MVP of his Junior Varsity team. In his junior season, Solberg started on a record-setting offensive line for the varsity team. And, as a senior, he was a captain and started on both offense and defense. However, despite his list of

accomplishments, Solberg was lightly recruited coming out of high school, receiving only walk-on offers to a handful of Division II programs. So, he ended up choosing Concordia College, the school where he felt most welcomed.

At Concordia

During his freshman season, Solberg did not play much. However, he did travel with the team... and he grew another inch. In his second season with the program, Solberg started the second game of the season and the three subsequent games after that before suffering an injury. Once he returned from injury, he made an impact as a rotational player.

Still, with untapped potential, it was during his third year with the Cobbers that Solberg really solidified himself within the program, starting every game in his junior year. Then, he went on to do the same thing in his senior season, earning All-Conference honors as team captain.

BY BRADY DRAKE continued >

Solberg did plenty of traveling during his football abroad experience.

Pre Professional Football

After graduating from Concordia, Solberg said he didn't really consider football as much of an option as a player.

"I wanted to stay around the game, but I didn't really think about doing it as a player much," Solberg said. "My dad wanted me to give it a try. He wanted me to head to a couple of regional combines just to see if I could get an opportunity. I think he had more confidence in me than I did. I was just being realistic—I was coming from a Division III team where we ran the triple option. They throw it around even up in the Canadian Football League. I didn't think I had a chance so I didn't think about it much."

So, wanting to stay around the game, Solberg began coaching as a volunteer at Concordia College, helping mold offensive linemen. But that wasn't the only thing he was doing over the past couple of years. He also began a major

body transformation that included boxing, bodybuilding and a marathon run. All in all, the former road grader dropped to 240 lbs a major change from the 310 lb and 285 lb frame he sported as a junior and senior within the Cobber football program.

Even though he didn't look like your traditional offensive lineman anymore, this collegiate coach began thinking about returning to the trenches after talking to a mix of people in the program that knew people playing overseas.

"I learned that I had to go on this website called europlayers.com. I did that and just started promoting myself," Solberg said. "They told me I should look into getting an agent, but I kind of just bet on myself and the tape that I had put out my senior year of college. I messaged and messaged teams until finally, I had one respond. Then, I had a second team respond and before I knew it, I had like five teams interested in me. I chose the Fursty Razorbacks because they just felt like the right fit to me."

The Football Abroad Experience

Solberg had just finished running his first marathon when he started to seriously consider the possibility of playing for the Razorbacks. After finishing, he rested for a week and then started working with a personal trainer at Power By Design Fitness who helped him get back up to 275 lbs before going over to Deutschland.

In the home of brawts and beer was thrust into a fully padded practice on just his fourth day.

"I had had a chance to look at the playbook and felt fairly confident about it," Solberg said. "But I get out to practice and everybody is speaking German. The only time English is being spoken is just to me. I felt like I was drinking from a fire hydrant."

However, Solberg eventually knocked off the rust and assimilated himself into a schedule that included: an hour-long

Solberg (#66) poses with a couple of his teammates.

virtual meeting on Tuesdays, a two-hour practice on Wednesdays, a two and a half hour practice on Fridays and a game on the weekend, earning a starting spot on the offensive line along the way. As part of his contract with the team, Solberg also had a number of off-field responsibilities that he had to fulfill, after all, we aren't talking about the glamorous life of someone playing in the National Football League where the minimum salary is $660,000 per season. These responsibilities included field maintenance and community outreach. The rest of the time, which Solberg claims he had plenty of, he was free to explore.

And I knew i had more experience playing football than these guys. A lot of them are really good players, but I've been playing for a really long time. Most of the guys in the league have only been playing for. a few years. I've been playing for 14. I knew I could outsmart a lot of them there.

What was the level of play like over there in comparison to what you've experienced in America?

What were those first few padded practices like with your extended layoff from the game?

At first I was like, 'okay, I still got it.' But then there would be some plays where I'm like, 'holy crap, I've lost a few steps here.' But I felt confident because I knew I was a good player.

People always describe it as being similar to Texas high school football. At first, I disagreed but then, the more I thought about it, the more I agree because Texas is known for pretty dang good football and they do have some pretty dang good football in Germany as well but it's still like high school. What I mean by that is each team, like high school, has a few really dominant guys—a few really really good football players. Then, the rest of the guys are there for the love of the game and the love of their teammates— just like high school football.

I'm sure you just loved playing over there. I know you told me you even had a couple of chances to play defense.

I felt like a kid out there. Football is an emotional game and through the good and the bad, I had a smile on my face the majority of the time I was out there.

Can you tell me about some of the other responsibilities you had over there in addition to playing football?

Part of our job was promoting the team so we were given times to hang up posters around town. Which was cool because I had a chance to become very familiar with the town because of driving around and hanging up these big cardboard posters. We were also responsible for cleaning up all the trash on the field. Occasionally, we'd do some other odd jobs on the field like seeding the field and making sure the sprinkler system was working correctly. Then, there were other times where we had to go out and promote the team.

What did you do with your free time?

Travel! I went all over the place. I made it to Italy. I made it to Budapest, Hungary. I made it to Vienna, Austria. I made it to Paris, France. I even made it to a small country called Liechtenstein one time and then a lot of places all over Germany so I got very familiar with Bavaria, the state in

Germany I was staying in.

I got to see King Henry's castle. I got to see the Coliseum. I got to see the Pantheon. I went on a lot of hikes. Where we were staying was right next to the Alps. Munich was about an hour train ride away. I made a lot of friends there and got to go to a lot of festivals.

How was food?

The food was delicious. It doesn't have a lot of color to it, but it does have a lot of taste. Its a lot of meat and potatoes. You eat a lot of sausages, a lot of pork. I had so many Bavarian pretzels. They're huge, they're soft, they're amazing. And I did drink a lot of beer, I'm not gonna lie. I'm surprised I didn't get fat off beer. But I think I was just so active that it never caught up to me.

Are you going to try to keep playing?

I for sure plan on playing another season, somewhere else or even back in Fursty. I'm back in Fargo now and you'll see me around Metroflex quite often if you go there. I'll be getting ready for another season. I know I can't do this forever, the money just isn't good enough, but I'm going to have fun with it while I can.

Is there anything else you want to say for the article?

I just want to talk about how great the

In this instagram post, shared shortly after his senior collegiate season, Solbeg bid the game farewell. Little

We did so many things because me and the other imports were just willing to say yes to everything because we wanted to have so many different experiences. We went to a hockey game. We went floating down a river. We'd go out to bars and go to festivals. We went to an FC Bayern Munich game, that was really cool to watch that type of crow and see how big soccer is there.

So many of the players over there invited us over for meals and we really got to know their families. I also got to know a man named Larry Dixon pretty well. He coaches on the Razorback's junior team, but he's a college football legend. He has coached at places like Arkansas, the Dallas Cowboys and Notre Dame, and has worked in the Dallas Cowboys personnel department and as part of the NFL's player development program in Europe. I went out to dinner with Larry so many times and he showed us so much of Germany.

Hans Solberg's story is truly incredible, playing professional football after taking two years off. Let it serve as a reminder to never give up on your dreams.

What can customers expect when first walking in? What did you want the experience to be like?

We want people to feel like they are walking into a welcoming home when they enter our work home. Our goal was to create a space that feels so comfortable, inviting and aesthetically pleasing that people would not want to leave. We are told that seems to be the case!

Congrats on the new studio! Is the new studio a brand new building/location or is it remodeled?

Our location used to be the fire station in Detroit Lakes. The building has been remodeled to accommodate several businesses. The structure is awesome, having good bones as well as a great aura! We are thrilled to be in a building that carries such an important piece of history within the community.

What logistical stats can you provide about the new space? How long it took to complete? Open hours, apt only?

We have been working in the design studio for well over a year. We took our time (and Covid took its toll on the supply chain of goods) but we wanted our space to showcase the latest design trend options as well as timeless design components. Our goal is to display as many possibilities in order to touch the individual tastes of each client. We are open Tuesdays and Thursdays without appointment from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The other days are exclusive scheduled appointments. However, when our "Come on in" sign is displayed, come on in no matter the day!

What was the main goal for the new studio?

Simply to have a new retail space, or were there other factors?

Our reason for opening the new studio is to better serve our clients in the Minnesota lakes area. We are fortunate and feel sincerely blessed to have such great people to work with in the Minnesota lakes area. The addition of our Detroit Lakes location makes the convenience such a bonus!

THE JOURNEY OF OPENING A BREWERY

The idea to open a brewery first took shape when longtime colleagues Chuck Fritz and Henry Van Offelen bonded over their mutual passion for home brewing. All of the home brewing in the early days was done in Van Offelen's garage near Detroit Lakes. Appropriately, the name for the brewery came from the road where Henry lives, Bucks Mill Road.

After attending events and sharing some of his brews, Van Offelen knew it was time to seriously consider opening a brewery with Fritz. Why Detroit Lakes? Well, for one, there's no single true brewery in Detroit Lakes. Plus, breweries are a great community asset and all the communities around the region with breweries can attest to that.

In the summer of 2022, Bucks Mill Brewing officially opened.

"I think this is going to be a great community asset and is going to be a popular place," Van Offelen said. "Downtown (Detroit Lakes) will love it. I think we're full steam ahead now."

A COMPLETE WALKTHROUGH

For Fritz and Van Offelen, one of the best parts of working with the Design 2 Sell team was their ability to take control of the project and lead every aspect of the process. From mood board presentation to project completion, Skye and Roxanne's vision, leadership and execution took the burden off Fritz and Van Offelen so they could focus on what they love doing: brewing beer.

One of the main goals for the design was to give the sense of bringing the outdoors inside. The lounge area evokes that exact feeling, binging in elements like the pergola and suspended lights, giving an outdoor patio vibe.

One of the first elements of the design Skye and Roxanne knew they wanted to incorporate was the green subway tiles for the main bar paired with the beer hops pendant lights.

The hallway is lined with black and white photographs capturing moments from the prohibition era, a nod to American heritage.

ABOUT THE BEER

When it comes to their beers, Bucks Mill Brewing is a full-service brewery that offers a wide range of beers that fit your palette. If you like a light beer, they'll have that for you. If you like a malty beer, they'll have that for you. If you want an IPA, they'll have a couple of those on tap. they'll have a seltzer as well as a range of sours. And no doubt they'll definitely have a group of flagship beers that are always on tap. Additionally, there will also be seasonal beers that rotate.

The eye-catching larger-than-life murals were done by local artist Hans Gilsdorf and his team.

For owners Fritz and Van Offelen, the most fulfilling part of all of this is being able to watch people enjoy the space and enjoy the beer. "The best part is walking into something that you did and watching people enjoying themselves—that's what we want," Fritz said.

"Everywhere you look, there's going to be eye candy," Fritz said. "Everywhere you look, there's going to be something unique and cool to look at—and that vision wouldn't have been possible without Skye and Roxanne and the team at Design 2 Sell—they were awesome and we can't thank them enough."

TRI TIP STEAK

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Start your Traeger on 225°F and turn on super smoke, if available.

2. If your tri tip came with the fat cap on, you will want to take a sharp knife and remove it at this time. Once removed, you can coat the steak in olive oil. The olive oil is used to create something for our rub to stick to.

Apply Pit Happens rub liberally to all sides, this is where you will get a lot of your flavor!

4. Once the grill is up to temperature, place your steak on the grill. Also place the Grill grates on at this time so they have time to heat up.

5. Once the internal temp reads 125°F on your meat thermometer, pull the steaks and crank the grill to 500°F.

6. After 20 minutes the grill should have time to reach temp and the grill grates should be ready to sear.

7. Place your steaks onto the grates pushing down slightly to get a good sear. Rotate 90° after 90 seconds, flip after another 90 seconds and rotate one more time for the last 90 seconds.

8. Pull your steaks at 130°-135°F and let them rest for 10 minutes.

Pencils Plus

Jayme Burlison stands in the middle of the Wahpeton Community Center. Organized groups of backpacks line the walls while the center of the room is filled with what appears to be a small mountain of cardboard. Jayme and her co-worker, Becky DeVries of the Three Rivers Crisis Center in Wahpeton, ND, have just finished filling the last backpack with supplies for the Pencils Plus: Richland-Wilkin School Supply Drive.

The drive, which took place August 11, marks the second year that the Three Rivers Crisis Center has hosted Pencils Plus, and it is more than a little unusual to have a school supply drive run by an entity which provides services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence and child sexual abuse. For years the school supply drive was run by the Richland Wilkin United Way, which dissolved in December 2019. The following year the Richland/Wilkin Community Foundation did a COVID version of the drive. When they realized the continued depth of the need for the program, the Foundation asked if any of the area nonprofits would be willing to take on the task for 2021. Three Rivers Crisis Center stepped up.

“No one else volunteered and we knew it was a huge need, so we just jumped in,” Jayme said. “It was the end of June and we went in blind. It was just ‘this is what

we’re doing now’ as we rushed to pull everything together by August.”

“Collette Barton, who was the director of United Way here for many years, was so invested in this program and has just been invaluable. She didn’t want us to have to start from scratch, so she gave us all the information she had,” Becky said. “It was such a huge help last year when we knew nothing.”

When United Way began the program, it provided around 200 backpacks. Over the years, the need has steadily increased, bringing this year’s total to 600. Three Rivers Crisis Center pulls the school supply lists from all eight school districts and makes an effort to obtain the most commonly requested items by grade, including glue, markers, notebooks and scissors, with special efforts to obtain the brands requested by teachers so that there is a consistency in both quality and inclusion in the classrooms.

“Last year was a wild ride,” Jayme said. “This year was so different. We knew we were doing it so we were able to plan and ask for help. People have been amazingly supportive, either donating money or school supplies. We’ve gotten a lot of support from businesses; some collected from their employees. ABU Trailers donated a utility trailer for us to auction off. It’s been amazing.”

“Bobcat went through our Amazon Wishlist and we kept getting package after package,” Becky said. “People

have been so generous financially. And we’ve had so many volunteers who have contributed to helping pack the backpacks and to keep us organized and help promote. Three young men from the Valley Lake Boys Home offered to help set up tables and move backpacks for us after playing basketball during their summer school program. People have been so willing to jump in to make this happen.”

While the Richland-Wilkin Backpack & Coats for Kids Distribution is a one-day event shared with the Optimist Club of Wahpeton, who collect winter gear for school students, Three Rivers maintains that financial resources must be collected all year round to make the program successful. Although the Three Rivers Crisis Center’s staff all volunteer their time, the Richland-Wilkin School Supply Drive does not fall within the Center’s scope of practice. Therefore, no funds from the non-profit can be used to purchase supplies for the initiative. This makes community donations, like the $1000 gift from the Cass Clay chapter of the Awesome Foundation who named Pencils Plus their August 2022 grantee, vital to the continuation of the program.

“When we have financial contributions and know what we are getting we can take that money and search for deals. There are often big sales in December and January, and because they are off-season we can search for those and make a bulk order to store for the next year,” Becky said.

All these boxes you see were filled with school supplies. It's just crazy. You hear 600 backpacks and don’t realize how much it takes to fill them!”

“With costs going up we need to shop like that to make it work,” Jayme said.

With so much community support Three Rivers Crisis Center is looking to make Pencils Plus a separate non-profit with a mission statement more in line with education in hopes of opening additional avenues of funding.

“We’ve had so many volunteers express interest in being involved,” Becky said. “We’re just so thankful we live in the community we do.”

The Red River Zoo A Look Inside

The Red River Zoo is a staple in the FM community. Open year-round, the zoo is one of the best places for curiosity to bloom with educational and most importantly, fun activities for the family! Let’s learn a little bit more about the zoo and what it and its residents have to offer as the weather cools down.

The Zoo

The zoo has been open since 1999 and has 22 acres for the community to explore! There are approximately 98 species from around the world at the zoo, with almost all 98 being cold climate species. The zoo follows a walking path to take you to meet all of the animals, but don’t worry—there is an enclosed building by each stop, to warm up from the cold.

Rentals

Did you know you can rent the zoo? There are opportunities to rent out different enclosed (and heated) areas at the zoo. Kids can have a sleepover while they hang out with the wolves or enjoy a corporate get-together right next to the bison! The Diederich Carousel Pavilion is another great spot for birthday parties and celebrations.

Food

Head to the Diederich Carousel Pavilion for fresh popcorn, Dippin’ Dots ice cream, cotton candy, animal crackers and candy! During the summer visit the Dancing Crane Cafe for more.

Carousel

The Diederich Carousel Pavilion holds a historic spot at the zoo. The carousel is a rare Allan Herschell restored ride, built in 1928 and originally part of a traveling carnival! The carousel had been to Texas, Ohio and Iowa before being restored and donated to the zoo by the Diederich family. The carousel is a special reminder for the zoo, as its donor’s purpose was to give back to the children of the FM community.

Wilds Soap Company

DeVerne Augustus and Dana Mathews have a crazyinteresting maker story: originally from the salon world, they landed in soapmaking over time. We met them through one of the Drekker Craft Markets and fell hard for their gorgeous, natural soaps they create here in town!

Be sure to find them at a local market this fall to check out their seasonal scents…

Tell us a bit about yourself:

We are just two guys who like new adventures and have a hard time sitting still. I (DeVerne) grew up in Perham, MN and moved west to Spokane, WA in 1991. Dana is a northwest native, growing up in and around the Spokane region most of his life. We met in 2001 and have been inseparable ever since. Our first business was our salon in Spokane which we operated, as stylists, for 15+ years. We even had a chocolate and wine shop in a part of the salon. As stylists, we always worked with our hands in a creative fashion. I have always found additional ways to be creative; I crafted the handmade chocolate truffles for the chocolate shop, made beaded jewelry and even dabbled in lapidary, cutting and polishing semi-precious gemstones from across the globe. In 2017, we moved to the Palm Springs, CA area. Living in such an incredible locale was great, but we found ourselves wanting something less hectic and missing some cooler weather. We definitely found that

here in the Fargo area when we moved here in 2021.

Since retiring from the salon world, we have started careers in real estate. After moving back to the region and settling in West Fargo, we knew it was time for a new endeavor that helped us get out and meet new people since we essentially knew no one. Drawing on my (DeVerne) time in the beauty world, educating and focusing on healthy alternatives free of the chemicals found in so many personal care products, making natural chemical-free soap made perfect sense. That is how Wilds Soap Company was born.

Describe what type of products you make as Wilds Soap Company?

We create natural, hand made, vegan, palm-free soaps. Every color comes from plant powders or clays, every aroma comes from natural essential oils. The goal is to offer soap that is good for the body, soul and environment. We use

no palm because of conservation and sustainability concerns, no artificial pigments or fragrance for concerns of health and safety.

Tell us how you got started with soapmaking.

I have a history of working with personal care product lines and have always been concerned with the chemicals used along with how those chemicals interact with our bodies. After moving back to the Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo area, we wanted to start a business that didn’t require all the overhead a storefront requires and left time to build our careers as Realtors®. Dana’s excellent client service skills are perfect for engaging guests at shows. He has a genuine knack for turning strangers into fans and friends. Soapmaking seemed like a great fit to utilize our prior knowledge and experience while providing endless

opportunities to meet members of our new community while experiencing so many great venues and businesses at the same time. Being part of vendor shows at local breweries are starting to be our favorite.

Where does your inspiration come from for new scents or products?

Honestly, inspiration came from things I like. We made many citrus-based fragrances to honor our time living in Southern CA. In Palm Springs, when the citrus trees are blooming and fruiting, the air is heavy with their fragrance. Last fall as the long dark days of winter were looming, the idea was to give a bright energizing kick start to the day. We have several woodsy aromas that are reminiscent of walks in the pine forests of the Pacific Northwest. Every Thanksgiving we would visit family in Bellingham and go

on short hikes. The Old Growth Forest aroma is designed to smell like those hikes. Another aroma is based on stays on the Clark Fork River with my sister and her husband. Other aromas come from walks with our dogs when we smell wildflowers and the prairie in bloom. Still, others are classic aromas that are loved by many. Other aromas come from customer suggestions—our Fishing Soap is an example. We were at a show and someone asked if we had anything that helps remove the smell of fish from hands. Having never heard of such a thing, I went to the allpowerful Google and searched for info. I couldn’t find a recipe, but did find the information that turned into the anisebased aroma and it is a hit with our customers. Inspiration lives all around us, all we have to do is be open to experiencing it.

103

What is your personal favorite creation/soap so far?

I’ve made some pretty soaps that smell wonderful, but my favorite creation is my Vegan, Palm-free recipe. I love the soap because it has a dense creamy lather without sacrificing all the sudsing of the bar. It cleans great without stripping away all the natural protective oils our skin makes for us.

What is something people might find surprising about working with soapmaking?

Soapmaking is an incredibly precise process, and different oils react differently with lye. That can make developing recipes tricky. I use software to create and test a recipe so I am certain that all the lye will be reacted out of the batter, yet ensure enough moisturizing capability is left in the finished soap. When soap is made right, all the lye is gone and turns into other elements entirely.

What is something you've enjoyed the most about doing this handcrafted business?

Learning how to create color and design in soap has been a very fun trial and error process. Natural colorants are more muted than oxides and micas and can be tricky to work with. Some natural colorants change color when they are in the lye reaction process

or cure into usable soap. Let’s take our woodgrain soaps as an example. We want them to look like cut pieces of wood (think the grain in hardwood floors or a two-by-four). Learning which plant powders will contrast enough yet still look like natural wood has been an enjoyable process.

What is the most challenging thing?

I’m going to sound like a broken record, but learning how to create color and design in our soaps. Natural colorants are somewhat limited in range and intensity. An example is rainbowinspired soaps for Fargo-Moorhead Pride. Getting really good red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet was pretty difficult. While clays are pretty stable, indigo powder (blue) and alkanet powder (violet) don’t always play nice in soap regarding their hues. And color proportions in soap are challenging. Learning how much white to contrast with the colors in swirl techniques and how little black it takes to overtake everything else is proving to be a long-term learning curve.

What advice would you have given yourself 10 years ago?

Don’t wait, just get to it. Stop secondguessing yourself, you know enough, and you will figure it out. I heard an adage a long time ago. “You don’t

need to see the whole staircase, you only need to see the next step to get started,” or something like that. It is 100% true.

Where can people find your work?

We love doing in-person shows, they get us out and about in front of people so they can personally experience the look, feel and smell of our soaps and of course our stellar personalities.

Look for us at events at Wild Tera Cider, Fargo Brewing Company and Drekker. We’ve been part of Plants for Patients plant parties, Vintage Market, Mini Makers Market and Unglued Makers Market. We’ll be in the Red River Refillery in Brewhalla when that opens. We can always be reached at our Facebook page facebook.com/ wildssoap.

Dig the Harry Styles Vibe

Singer Harry Styles has taken the music scene by storm in recent years. Over the last year, he’s brought the 1970s fashion with him on his rise to the top. Most concertgoers of his have crafted 1970s-esque costumes for the shows, with many using them as their Halloween costumes as well. Don’t be afraid to blast to the past with an eye-popping retro costume!

Superheroes

Following the princess trend that stays immensely popular, who doesn’t love a good superhero costume? While superheroes have been a wildly popular Halloween costume idea for quite some time now, they’re arguably bigger than ever with Marvel continuing to pump out multiple billion-dollar films per year. Kids (and adults) can take this opportunity to dress up as their favorite superhero, whether it be Batman, Superman or any other largerthan-life character!

The Advice That Helped Them Get There

Did you know?

What it takes for success

The path to success is hardly ever traveled alone, and rarely comes without a few bumps in the road. There's often a multitude of factors that play into one person's climb to the top of their ranks. We spoke with a handful of determined and successful people with ties to the Fargo-Moorhead area regarding what, and who, they believe helped them find success in the area we're proud to call home. Join us as we introduce these individuals over the coming months.

John Machacek is the Chief Innovation Officer of Greater Fargo Moorhead EDC. The GFMEDC’s core purpose is to cultivate an economic environment where all people and organizations flourish in the area. With the goal of brightening the future of our area’s economy, Machacek is here to support all members of the local business community, no matter how big or small a person’s ambition is to make a difference in the FMWF area.

How did you get to the position you’re in today?

I began working a mix of food and retail management for the most part throughout my early career. I was looking to reset my career path and had an interest in economic development. I wrote a good cover letter on why, as a current manager at my job, I was applying for an administrative assistant job at the EDC. I quickly worked my way up into new responsibilities and roles; left for a 6-year gap as I worked in banking and for a non-profit, then came back 10 years ago.

#1 #2

Within about a year into my second tenure, my role began to delve into entrepreneurial development and it became a larger function of my role about 7-8 years ago.

What is the GFMEDC’s primary focus?

The primary focus of the GFMEDC (Greater Fargo-Moorhead Economic Development Corporation) is on primary sector companies, which for the most part have a value-add product or service and most of their revenue is not derived from local customers. These are companies

that help bring new wealth into your region by having customers around the country and world. It is common for EDCs to focus on that and it's also common that economic programs are for those types of businesses.

Throughout his journey to the position he’s in today, Machacek has gained a wealth of knowledge and lessons learned over his time with the Greater Fargo Moorhead Chamber EDC. He elaborated on some of the advice that he believes in and attributes to some of his successes.

Always plan a properly executed plan. Don't be afraid to not know the answers to some things.

Execution can be just as important as planning, because if you continue to plan without ever executing on the plan, then it will never go anywhere. Everybody has ideas, but there is little value in the idea if you never get the idea out of your head and take action on it.

It's better to say you don't know the answer and look into/learn from it, as opposed to B.S.'ing your way through something, as that could lead to future issues and lost credibility. With that, don't be afraid to ask others when seeking out answers, as you could waste a lot of time researching it or attempting to do something yourself. I often see that with well-organized startups, as they know it's worth the financial cost of outsourcing a task or solution to a professional as that professional can do it much faster and accurately. The entrepreneur's time is much better spent on other parts of their business.

Always welcome resources.

There are a lot of resources and people out there to help, so don't go into something totally alone. Grants themselves are somewhat of a myth or rarity, but organizations including SBDCs, SCORE, Women's Business Center and EDCs are there as free resources for practical knowledge, connections and more.

Funding and credit can be a mix of science and art.

You could say that the science is the numbers and ratios that come from financial statements, but the art can also include their faith in your character and vision, and those types of gut feelings can't be instantly developed. Don't wait until you desperately need funding to establish some relationships with banks and funders. Even if you've developed the relationships, don't wait until the bank account is nearly empty to have conversations about additional funding.

Always read the fine print.

In our world of primary sector economic development programs, many financing and tax programs will have particular steps and timelines, which we will tell you about in advance. With some of those timelines, if you don't complete certain tasks first, it can be too late. So my advice on if a resource provider is sharing this information with you: PLEASE pay attention to it and set reminders to do them. That way, you don't already add the jobs or buy the equipment or sign the lease, and then come to the provider saying, "Now what was that you said again about X program," as your transaction may have caused that window opportunity to close.

#6Solicit input from others to look through and/or validate your plan.

I find entrepreneurs often "can't see the forest for the trees" because they are so in the thick of all the business details. It could be that you've written and rewritten your plans a thousand times, to the point that you don't see particular things or think of them. One example is to have an SBDC work through your financial projections as they may alert you to fixed and variable costs you aren't thinking about, or internal projections that are highly unrealistic. Another example is having someone like me read through your business plan or pitch deck to view it as an outsider, who will bring up questions on things they don't understand—because if they are asking that question, then maybe your customers or investors will be confused as well.

Overcoming Struggles

Machacek stated that some of his biggest struggles were figuring out who he was and what kind of work he enjoys doing. “It was a combination of trial and error on my career path, as well as the continual learning process,” Machacek said.

To overcome the obstacles, he focused on being open to always learning and refraining from settling. “Even though I had very little self-confidence, I still pushed myself to try new jobs, meet new people and learn new things. Over time, due to gaining more confidence but also building my network, it got easier and easier,” Machacek said.

main thing is that if I do it and that person reciprocates by taking action themselves, that leads to their own ripples. In the big picture, it's a great reason to always be thoughtful and actually engage in your life, and not just let life happen to you.

allowed me to absorb life lessons more easily. I've had good jobs and bad jobs, and good bosses and notso-good bosses, and have learned from all of them.

II've become very cognizant of the potential ripple effects of any of your actions. Sometimes I trace back impactful things to moments where if I didn't make that effort to talk to this person or participate in something, then these other things may not have happened in my life. The same goes with the help I give and the connections I make. Oftentimes, it only takes a brief moment of my time to do something, but the

Have you had any notable mentors?

I've never had any particular mentors, but I've asked a lot of questions throughout my life and I pay attention to how people act, behave and make decisions. I'm more of a listener than a talker, which I think has

In addition, something that sticks out to me from a past personality assessment is that job titles and statures don't really resonate well with me. With that, I never really put anyone on a pedestal, but there are a few people I admire for the way they treat people, the life they live and the positive impacts they have made.

118 | OCTOBER 2022 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

“We manage a loan fund that was created in the early 90s to encourage primary sector companies to make capital investments to grow their businesses. We've taken that initial $7.5 million that created the fund, and have lent out and revolved nearly $18 million in loans that have fostered capital investment expenditures of over $600 million, added 6 million square feet of property, created 6,500 jobs and help trigger about $30 million in matching grants for those expanding companies. The ROI on that $7+ million couldn't be much better.”

John Machacek

Who inspires you?

In my life, that is easily the two children I helped bring into the world and raise. They are great kids (now adults) that I am very proud of. I feel very good about the father and husband I've been, as well as that I’m living a fulfilling life.
