Val Stadick, Minot Entrepreneur, Main Street Books

If you were to ask me who is Minot's most enterprising woman it would be an impossible task but Val Stadick would be right at the top of the list. Val started Main Street Books with some used books,a loan from her husband, and a lot of determination. Today Main Street books is one of the most popular stores in the City of Minot and I dare say even a draw to Minot ND. Val is an inspiration to anyone who has nothing but a dream and the determination to make that dream come true.

 

Minot Today is broadcast over the air on two Minot radio stations every Friday. You can find it on 106.9 FM at 12:15 (Noonish) and again at 4:45 on 1320 AM. Of course I always post the broadcast as a Podcast here as well as my Podcast site at Pod-O-Matic.

An Active Day

I had a very active day and it was good so I thought I'd share it with you. Of course it started with a dozen roses and a card for the mother of my children and then off to church from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Tilled and planted the garden. Washed… more

It's Officially Gone To Heck

I can't really say if it's been a rapid demise or a slow death but witnessing it has been painful. Everyone has witnessed Newsprint go from the King of the Hill in Real Estate advertising to a much lower status. I don't know how it is in your area… more
