BEMIDJI -- Two years ago, Kari Ekhoff could barely speak, much less sing. Suffering from asthma without knowing it, the young mother lost her voice -- the voice that put her through college and helped others learn how to sing. A lot has changed since then. After going through dozens of tests and working with doctors, specialists, even a speech therapist, Kari got her voice back by taking a pill called Singulair. Kari and her husband, Paul, along with their three children moved from the Twin Cities to Bemidji last summer.
