Noreen Thomas of Doubting Thomas Farms

doubting thomas

We have more than our fair share of awesome women in our community. One name that immediately comes to mind is Noreen Thomas of Doubting Thomas Farms. If you are concerned at all about locally and organically grown food, then you’ve either met her or have heard her name. If you’ve eaten at HoDo, Black Bird Woodfire Pizza or People’s Organic, then you’ve probably eaten food from her farm.

Bee-utiful soap: The Honey B Soap Company

Honey B

When our oldest daughter was just a newborn, I started to wonder about the ingredients I was putting on her skin while giving her a bath one night. I finished her bath and then proceeded to put baby lotion on her little body, using a product I (then) trusted. It was a bedtime lotion that was supposed to have relaxing properties. I remember glancing at the bottle and was a little disturbed to read the following:

Does North Dakota need a special session?

Governor

With all that is happening in western North Dakota, some cities in the heart of the oil boom have begun to ask the state for more help dealing with the challenges meeting the needs of their communities. Specifically, with the North Dakota Legislature meeting biennially for 80 days in odd numbered years, some have wondered if they can afford to wait until 2015 to get all the dollars needed to deal with the many aspects in various sectors affected by growing population and traffic by the ever exploding growth in the oil industry.
