My husband used to be the Executive Director for the Habitat for Humanity chapter in Grand Forks, and so I know how much work it takes to build a house, and how involved and invested the homeowner is in the process. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not a “free house” – the owner puts in sweat equity and then gets a mortgage with lower monthly payments with the plan that they will one day own it (the Habitat for Humanity chapter owns the house until it is paid off). And now, Pamela Lorenz is the first owner of a Minot Habitat home. (Minot Daily News)
Story of the Week: I love that our North Dakota newspapers are hometown enough that they can feature a pet of the week. (Dickinson Press)
