Organization is the key to reducing stress. With the start of a new school year, now is the perfect time for families to get organized to make the year go a little more smoothly. Here are some tips to getting orga­nized.
Nadine Silverthorne of todaysparent.com suggests inviting a professional or­ganizer into your home (yes, professional organiz­ers really do exist). Howev­er, inviting a stranger into your home may be more stressful than the mess they need to cure. Instead, Silverthorne offers some strategies for getting orga­nized that she learned from the professional she hired.

Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has sought appli­cations to host Walkable Community Workshops. According to the MDH website, walkable com­munities make it easier for people to be physically active, foster social con­nections and improve ac­cess to everyday destina­tions. In short, walkable communities are healthy, thriving communities!
Thanks to a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, MDH will make available up to $5,000 to areas to support implementation priorities identified dur­ing the workshop. After the workshop, local com­munities will receive on­going technical assistance from MDH to implement their action plans. Four Minnesota communities applied for and have been chosen for the project: The City of Red Wing; Glendale Townhomes family housing—Prospect Park neighborhood, Min­neapolis; Lincoln County; and the City of Fergus Falls.

With trendy residents and our many boutiques, Hendricks continues a proud legacy of shaping regional and national fashion trends. Local males are once again inspiring the imaginations of leading fashion designers. We look to the streets of Hendricks to see what innovative designs will eventually be seen on the red carpets of Los Angeles and the catwalks of New York City.
Thanks to Harvey Engesmoe, attire that could only be found on sand takes on new life. Beachwear has now gone upscale, and this “muscle beach” look has become the summer’s trendiest fad…

There’s no time like fair time, especially for Johnny Vlieger, who lives on a farm straight east of Hendricks. He couldn’t be more excited about his first-time fair experience.
Johnny has a Holstein heifer, June, named after June Carter Cash. (Johnny just happens to be a Johnny Cash fan). Last week at the Lincoln County Fair in Tyler, he exhibited his Holstein calf. “We have a lot of calves,” Johnny said. “I picked June because she was the tamest and friendliest. She looked the best.”
