MOORHEAD — Florence Klingensmith was a woman ahead of — actually, above — her time. The female aviator, called an aviatrix in the late 1920s and early '30s, grew up just north of Moorhead and started her flying career with the Fargo Aeronautics Club. She gained national fame as a stuntwoman-turned-aviator whose daring tendencies were matched by her boundless ambition. Nearly 85 years ago, Klingensmith earned acclaim as the first woman to participate in an air race against men, flying at top speed around pylons in Chicago during Labor Day weekend air races.
FARGO — Facebook has been in the news a lot lately, and not for good reasons. The recent revelations about the Cambridge Analytica data sharing has users who haven't already ditched the social media platform questioning whether they want to continue using the social network. Including me.
FARGO — Nearly five years ago I found out I was expecting my son, and I was a little nervous. After growing up with two sisters, I assumed I was destined to have daughters. I remember telling someone shortly after that 20-week ultrasound that I had no idea how to even play with a boy — all I knew was Barbies and baby dolls. I quickly learned that boys are a ton of fun, and I have loved playing dinosaurs, trucks and superheroes with my son.
FARGO — Standing in the bright, spacious kitchen of Seth and Nicole Holden's north Fargo home, it's hard not to admire the gleaming quartz countertops, rich hardwood floors and the luminous white subway tile backsplash. It's also hard to imagine the fact that two years ago, that kitchen didn't exist.
FARGO — Last month, Pantone Color Institute announced "Ultra Violet" as the Color of 2018. It's "a dramatically provocative and thoughtful" shade, according to the color experts, and a far cry from the light and fresh "Greenery" of 2017. To determine the annual Color of the Year (which the organization has done for 19 years now), Pantone analyzes design trends as well as other less well-defined concepts such as the national mood.
FARGO — The holiday season is an interesting time that involves many fun activities: baking goodies, enjoying special events, buying and wrapping gifts for friends and family, receiving product pitches for some obscure items... Wait, what? Yep, you read that correctly. The holiday season is prime time for public relations firms to pitch editors their products, hoping those items will land on various lists about hot gift ideas for the hard-to-buy-for family member or friend.
Now that Christmas is over, parents are breathing a sign of relief and looking forward to getting back to a normal routine. Except that won't happen until kids go back to school after the holiday break. For those families whose children are home, here are a few easy activities to keep them busy during the time off from school when they inevitably tire of their new toys.
FARGO — "The stockings were hung by the chimney with care..." Thanks to Clement Moore, those words and that image is seared into everyone's mind.
FARGO — Every holiday season, homeowners with dwellings of every size pull out their boxes, bins and bags of decorations to festoon their spaces with the merry signs of the season. Stashed among the many items purchased at end-of-the-season sales and unique boutiques are holiday keepsakes that have stood the test of time and mean just a little more to the person displaying the item than most of the store-bought items.
FARGO — With Thanksgiving passed, the holiday season is fully underway. If you haven't received one already, your mailbox will no doubt start filling up with a stream of holiday cards from family and friends. But how soon is "too soon" to send those greetings? Do you have to send something to everyone you've ever been friends with? What about electronic greetings — are they tacky or just incredibly cost effective and green?
