FARGO—One of the top 20 accounting firms in the United States will celebrate 100 years in business next month. What may surprise readers is that the firm, Eide Bailly, is headquartered here in Fargo. "I don't think a lot of people in North Dakota realize there is a top 20 CPA firm based in Fargo," said Fargo Partner-in-Charge Ross Manson. Eide Bailly recently reported $265 million in revenue, making it the country's 19th largest firm. It operates 29 offices across 13 states, serves 59,000 clients, and employs 234 partners and 1,459 staff members.
FARGO—Creative Plains Foundation is partnering with Forecast Public Art to host a workshop from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, May 15, at Lindenwood Park, 1712 5th St. S., where attendees will create sculptures from nature. Participants will create artwork inspired by environmental artist, Andy Goldsworthy. The group will discuss his work and then look for materials in the environment to create a unique piece of temporary art. Nature is the medium that will be used to explore balance, shape, color and texture.
I try to limit the items I obsess over. I think that is wise and increases the potential for a more rewarding, higher impact life. It is rarely helpful to major on the minor or be consumed with the common. One of satan’s greatest tactics to limit our positive impact is to distract us with the ordinary while missing out on the extraordinary.
FARGO -- Gov. Doug Burgum is a smart dude who tries really hard to sound even smarter. That’s why he drops words like “sub-optimize” when talking about higher education. It forces us plebes to use the Google machine to figure out what the hay he’s talking about. Perhaps this is an attempt to distract us from what the hay he’s actually talking about.
