SHOOTIN' THE WIT Waitin' on You
What do you think of when picturing an artist? A dude with a funny hat? A color pallet? A musician? Someone whos a little. different?
How about yourself? Have you ever created a work of art?

BECOMING MIDWESTERN "Why the heck did you move to Fargo?"
The question I get asked most often when I introduce myself to someone new in the FM area is, "Why the heck did you move to Fargo?"

While humans are usually the focus of Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity, the organization called on Grand Forks businesses to build homes of a different sort this year for a fundraiser — doghouses.
Nathan, Isaiah and David Berg hauled barley this week from their family farm to Lake Region Grain Cooperative, just like they’ve done in many summers past. To them, it’s really not work, at least not this year. Last week, they completed a nine-month, 15,000-mile bicycle journey from Alaska to the southern tip of Argentina, having raised more than $12,000.
They’ve been traveling through eastern Washington state this past week, heading toward Portland, Ore., their next temporary destination on “Bound South: Three Brothers’ Expedition from Alaska to Argentina,” a 20,000-mile adventure that will last until May 2012.
Starkweather, N.D., brothers document their 20,000-mile bike trip to raise money for Habitat for Humanity
Three North Dakota brothers are in the middle of their second leg of a 20,000-mile bicycle odyssey along the Pan American Highway from Alaska to Argentina.
Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity is hiring an executive director for the first time, the group said in a news release. Grand Forks resident Crystal Cummins, an assistant track and field coach at UND, started her new position May 1.
The first wall will be raised after a brief opening ceremony at 9:30 a.m. June 1 on a new Red River Valley Habitat home to be built by area volunteers as part of an alliance between Habitat for Humanity International and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. The home at 701 N. 24th St. in Grand Forks is scheduled to be ready June 16.
Like wood chips and corn stover, the cotton in millions of pairs of blue jeans in this country are a form of biomass, and that biomass now is being collected by students at North Dakota State University and other universities to insulate homes for Habitat for Humanity.
Jeff Schueller has a tool belt and a smile on his face. And every day after work, he has been helping with the Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans project on the northwest edge of Grand Forks.
He is among the more than 130 volunteers who have helped get the duplex built this summer. Now, it is nearing completion and two families will have new homes sometime in September — homes that otherwise would be beyond their means.
Lutherans, generally known for eating lefse, are hard at work this week raising the walls and the roof on the Habitat for Humanity duplex going up on North 53rd Street. By the end of August, it will be home for two families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to manage a loan.
