FARGO — Every Christmas season as Andy Williams belts out "It's the most wonderful time of the year," he's clearly forgotten about what happens this time of year: it's Girl Scout cookie time. It's a glorious time of year when the future leaders, innovators and go-getters offer you the opportunity to enjoy some of the most popular cookies in America including Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas and more.
FARGO - Film director Dusty Bias first met actor Nick Fink in 2005 when he was a groomsman at Fink's cousin's wedding. "Here I was this 14-year-old kid," Fink says. "I'm not sure what he thought." It turns out Bias thought Fink was just a nice, shy kid. But what neither one of them knew at the time is 12 years later, they would be reuniting at the Fargo Theatre to premiere an award-winning film one acted in and the other directed. Bias had just written his film script "Prairie Love" when he met the Fargo South freshman at the wedding.
FARGO - If you go to Sharon Secor's home for a visit, she's bound to offer you a cup of coffee, a cookie and a virtual trip to Kenya. "That's from Kenya," she says, pointing to the top shelf of her bookcase and a figurine of two people dancing. "The scarf I'm wearing is from there and the baskets in the corner are probably my favorites. They're also from Kenya. All of these things bring me so much joy."
FARGO — Valentine's Day changes as your children grow up. I miss the days when we'd go out and buy cards for every kid in their class. We'd spend time carefully Scotch-taping a Dum Dums lollipop or Tootsie Roll to each little Disney Princess or Power Ranger card.
FARGO — If the average American is told they need to go one month without eating processed foods, grains, dairy, beans, legumes, sugar or alcohol, two things might occur. First, they'd question why they're being punished. Second, they might wonder what's left to eat. But thousands of Americans, including some in the Fargo-Moorhead area, are willingly choosing to eat that way as part of the "Whole 30" program based on The New York Times best-selling book, "The Whole 30: The 30-Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom."
FARGO — No matter who wins the Super Bowl on Sunday, one thing is certain: many Americans will go back to work on Monday with a post-game food hangover. According to the National Retail Federation, last year Americans spent roughly $15 billion on Super Bowl celebrating. That's a lot of chicken wings, guacamole, pizza and beer. If you've been on Pinterest lately, you'll see that football fans are starting to find new ways to display the obnoxious amounts of food they'll serve at this year's party.
FARGO — After six weeks of being displaced, 57 women and children are set to move back into the YWCA Emergency Shelter on Friday, Feb. 3, about two weeks ahead of schedule. "We're still definitely a work in progress, but we're pretty excited," said YWCA Executive Director Erin Prochnow of the facility renovation following severe water damage late last year.
FARGO — Mary Murchie says shortly after she remodeled the master bathroom in her north Fargo home, her husband came to her with a concern. "I'm worried about the flooring by the wall. It's rotting," he told her. "I think it needs to be replaced." Murchie laughs. "I told him it's supposed to look like that," she says.
FARGO — Well, fellow trekkers we've made it almost a month now. "The Great Indoors Trek to Times Square" started on Jan. 1 and is an effort to virtually walk from Fargo-Moorhead to New York City by New Year's Eve. I've been encouraged by many, including people who've reached out on social media to say they're joining in this fitness trek inspired by one of my favorite TV shows "Modern Family." Check out "The Great Indoors" blog on Jan. 5 to read more about that.
FARGO — Here we are in the dog days of winter — dark, cold and sometimes dreary. Christmas is long past and spring is still weeks away. Even the next official holiday, Valentine's Day, is completely overrated. That's why it's so spectacular that we actually have something to celebrate in late January.
