Even Thor was bested when he wrestled with time. The force which we call time, the movement of the stars and the entropy of flesh, it is unyielding and absolute. Like a force of water upon a stone, over time carving a valley where once stood a mountain, time will make even the mightiest monument crumble. We marvel at the defiance of time—from pyramids to patriarchs—and we all of us seek to squirrel away as much of this precious resource as we can.
Their fur still damp from a recent bath, a pair of puppies squirm about as Steph Arthaud wraps them in a towel and gently brings them to join their mewling brothers and sisters in a kennel on the grass. These are just a pair from the latest litter that Raise the Woof helped save—a litter now up for adoption.
As Dickinson's Herberger's store continues its slow closure, aisles festooned with colorful discount signs, the store's associates continue to mingle with customers, making sales and swapping smiles.

First on First, the local weekly summertime event, brings all manner of interesting folks to Dickinson's downtown to check out live music and sample food truck delicacies—but these days, it isn't just the meals that are going mobile. "It's a dream come true," Brittani Dennis said inside her clothing boutique called Tumbleweed Boutique. It's an apt name, because despite the brick-like wall designs or the wooden floorboards, this wasn't a typical downtown clothing store—it was on wheels.

Folk tend to pass through Dickinson on all manner of adventure, and Leo Hauser is no exception—he and 25 others took a day to rest and recuperate in North Dakota's Western Edge on their 62-day journey across the United States, from Seattle to Boston, on bicycles. They're almost halfway there.
