The Medicine Wheel

Click to zoom

In 1992 at Valley City State University, Professor Joe Stickler and his students began work on Medicine Wheel Park. The project soon expanded beyond the walls of the classroom to involve the community. The Park features two solar calendars: A horizon calendar (the medicine wheel) and a meridian or noontime calendar. Other aspects of this unique 30-acre Park include Native American burial mounds, solar system model, the North Country National Scenic Trail and other woodland nature trials, several scenic overlooks of the Sheyenne River valley and Valley City, and a 3000 square foot perennial flower garden.

Healthy Retirement: Save by Being Proactive

Despite all the negative news about the state of retirement savings, 48% of us didn’t save more in 2018… and 13% of us actually saved less.

The shortfall isn’t just about money – it’s about our health too.

The research indicates that people who take their healthcare seriously make better financial decisions and have more money to save.

High blood pressure – the plague of so many of us gray hairs – isn’t taken seriously by most. Twenty percent of those diagnosed with it don’t take their medication, and 50% stop taking it within six months.

But if people with hypertension take their medication, they can realize as much as $2,000 per year in savings on healthcare costs

Older adults have the highest risk of severe complications or death from coronavirus. And the numbers of cases and deaths keep rising.
By Sunday, more than 1,320,000 people in the US have been infected, and more than 79,000 have died, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

‘Explosive increases in mobility’ leads to more projected deaths

A projection model cited by the White House now predicts thousands more deaths, largely due to “explosive increases in mobility in a number of states.”

The model,
