Josh Nichols can put on a silly hat, add a bit of theater makeup and use his imagination to transform into a villain, an old man or a clown. "When you put on a wig, all of a sudden you feel like that person," he said. Nichols wants to share what he's learned about the performing arts through his new studio, Acting Up. Located in Park Square Mall, the studio will start offering classes this fall.

When Celebrations 'n' Crafts relocated to 46 First Ave. W., the building was renovated to imitate its original 1903 appearance. Curators and co-owners Josh and Amanda Hardin removed the sheetrock and carpeting to expose the original brick walls and hardwood floors. The false ceiling came down to expose the tin and the wall plaster was removed to reveal the lats. "We love the old brick look and wanted to bring it back as close to its original appeal as possible," Josh said. "Every single person who has walked through the door has said the same word—'Wow.'"

Beulah Middle School fifth-grader Daviney McKay has a love of history—especially about her heroine Sakakawea and a curiosity about her Scottish ancestry. The two interests came together during the fourth annual Bakken BBQ on June 17 in Dickinson, when Make-a-Wish North Dakota revealed that Daviney and her family were going to visit the castles of Scotland. Daviney, daughter of Chantel and Shannon McKay of Golden Valley, was born with cystic fibrosis, a hereditary lung disease that can be life-threatening and qualified her to receive a Wish.

And while the hay is ready to be cut, Killdeer Angus producer Gene Harris and his family are taking a few days to enjoy the upcoming PRCA rodeos in Dickinson.
