PET TIPS FOR JUNE
By Donovan Darling, Staff Writer
Pets dehydrate fast on hot days. Make sure they have a big bowl of fresh water, plenty of shade, don’t overheat them with too much playing, and keep them inside if it’s crazy hot. If your pet is overheated, symptoms may include heavy panting or difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, excessive drooling, weakness, daze, or even collapse. So keep them cool and hydrated.
TAKE A SWIM
Pool water contains chemicals which are toxic if ingested, and many pets can’t swim. If your dog does swim, take them for a
dip in a local creek, river, or beach. Just keep them on a leash and /or closeby, and give them plenty of breaks. And enjoy the water!
This is no joke – heat stroke can be deadly! Never leave your animals alone in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked. After 1 hour your car can be 43 degrees hotter inside!
Maybe this one is obvious, but take a trip to the trails with your pup. Sunshine and exercise are great for everyone, and going for a drive will get you out of your rut and comfort zone and maybe even lead to adventure. Make sure to bring water, food, and collapsible dishes for your doggo.
With July 4th approaching, it’s good to remember most animals are scared by loud fireworks. If unavoidable, put your pets in a quiet, secure spot to protect them from emotional trauma, burns and toxic chemicals found in fireworks.
Barbecue season is here! But with that comes insecticides, herbicides, fertilizers, citronella candles, charcoal, and other dangers. The same goes for alcohol and foods toxic to pets like raisins, grapes, onions, chocolate, and xylitol. And really, most human food isn’t healthy for pets. Keep an eye on your dogs and keep cats inside if possible. Then enjoy!
Spending time outside with pups and kitties during summer days is fantastic. But it can also be dangerous! Follow these guidelines to help them stay cool and safe.

All That Jazz
A local treasure celebrating her 10th year of bringing the best jazz in the city to Langdon’s Grill in Aurora!
BY DENNIS MCNABB, STAFF WRITER
Rebecca Hardiman is a unique and singular talent. Growing up on a steady diet of jazz standards courtesy of her father, she gained a genuine appreciation for the genre at a young age. By the time she reached high school, she discovered she had an innate talent for singing in that style, and began honing her skills in the jazz choir. Straight out of high school, she auditioned and was selected out of over 100 applicants to enter the prestigious Soundsation Vocal Jazz program at Edmonds College in Washington. That’s where she got her first taste of life on the road, touring Europe and performing at a host of different festivals and venues.
Dazzling audiences and fellow musicians everywhere she performed, she was then recruited to join the prestigious Bostonbased vocal jazz group, The Ritz. There she began her professional career, recorded her first CD entitled “The Ritz,” and met her future husband, Ray Hardiman (the group’s keyboard player). It was an incredible and enlightening experience for them both, but playing in a touring band while simultaneously working full-time jobs was unsustainable as a long-term way of life.
In 1990, they moved from the East Coast back to Rebecca’s home state of Oregon. They continued playing with a variety of local bands—most notably, the vocal jazz group Euphoria which Rebecca
not only formed, but also played in for over a decade. Entertaining and inspiring audiences all over the Northwest, they were a cornerstone of the festival circuit, but it was all familiar territory for Rebecca. She was and always had been a part of a larger group. It was time to break out on her own, and that’s when her star truly began to shine.
In March of 2013, Ray began playing Friday nights at Langdon’s Grill. Shortly thereafter, Rebecca joined him, and over the succeeding months they developed a rabid following. Now, exactly 10 years later, Rebecca, Ray, and Whitney Moulton–their incredible bass player who is an equally incredible human being and integral part of the group–are one of the most popular and renowned jazz house bands in the Portland Metro Area. And their home is right here in Aurora! While their regular band consists of Rebecca, Ray, and Whitney, they also attract a host of guest musicians from all over the Northwest. Everyone who is anyone on the Portland jazz scene jumps at the chance to play with this “little band” out in Aurora.
So, listen up folks! Next time you and the spouse are looking for a fantastic Friday date night, including great food, great atmosphere, and the best entertainment in the city, look no further than Langdon’s Grill. Every Friday night between 6-8 PM, Rebecca, Ray, and Whitney hit the stage, and they will absolutely transport you to another world! Come celebrate 10 years of excellence!
Check out her website at RebeccaHardiman.com for more information and access to her incredible recordings.

Portland band contributes to Rock and Roll History
By Robert Matsumura, Contributing Writer
There’s something about the song “Louie Louie” by the Kingsmen that to this day gets people on their feet and out on the dance floor. So impactful is the song, in fact, that it’s been honored for its influence on the history of rock and roll, and earned recognition in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Grammy Hall of Fame, “Rolling Stone” magazine, and the National Endowment of the Arts. Were you aware, however, that this famous song, and the band that performed it, are from Portland, Oregon?
The Kingsmen formed in Portland, Oregon in 1959. As teenagers, they performed at high school parties, dances and supermarket openings, covering popular music on the radio. In time, the Kingsmen developed into one of the top bands in the Portland area, but it wasn’t until 1963 that they actually produced their first recording. The song “Louie Louie,” and an instrumental piece, “Haunted Castle,” were produced on a tape which the Kingsmen used for an audition on a cruise ship. The entire recording session cost $36. Although they failed to land the gig, Jerry Dennon, a Seattle record producer, pressed a few hundred copies on his regional label, Jerden. Although Northwest music fans knew “Louie Louie” as released by Richard Berry (1956) and the Wailers (1961), the song wasn’t familiar in other regions. Eventually, the Kingsmen’s version reached the East Coast and earned air time on a couple of Boston radio stations, generating a massive response from listeners. Dennon subsequently negotiated a deal with New York’s Wand label for mass production and distribution of the song. Wand held up their end of
the bargain, and “Louie Louie” exploded in several markets, skyrocketing up the charts.
As the song’s popularity began to wane, a controversy regarding the lyrics arose. The record was banned from sales and airplay in certain states in response to teens nationwide believing the lyrics contained obscene words. As one might expect, this only stimulated interest in the song, to the extent that the FBI investigated the band, tracking them across the country for over a year. They ultimately deemed the recording “unintelligible.” Wand reissued “Louie Louie” in 1964 (and in 1965 and 1966) where the record reached #2 in Billboard and #1 in Cashbox. The Kingsmen’s first LP resulted from a live recording in 1963 at The Chase, a teen nightclub in Milwaukee, Oregon. “Money,” their second Wand single, came from this live LP. At one point, the Kingsmen had two singles and three LPs on the charts simultaneously.
In 1965, the Kingsmen set 56 consecutive attendance records in colleges, ballrooms, arenas, state fairs and community dances, and became the #1 touring band in the U.S. They appeared in concert and on television with British acts such as The Rolling Stones, The Zombies, The Kinks and others. North American bands such as The Righteous Brothers, The Beach Boys, The Four Seasons, The Isley Brothers, The Guess Who, and The Byrds also featured them. The Kingsmen appeared on top TV music shows including “Shindig,” “Hullabaloo,” “American Bandstand,” and even the beach party movie “How to Stuff a Wild Bikini.”
So, the next time you hear “Louie Louie” playing on the radio or at an event, know that this legendary rock and roll classic, and the band that made it popular, originated right here in Oregon!

TO CELEBRATE EARTH DAY
By Kerry Yu, Fashion Consultant
Since the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, many organizations, groups and individuals have organized events and activities to celebrate Earth Day and to promote clean living and a healthy, sustainable habitat for people and wildlife alike. Celebrating Earth Day serves as a conscious reminder of how fragile our planet is and how important it is to protect it.
On Earth Day, April 22, Chinese Youth & Women Development Organization organized a 2023 Earth Day event in Lake Oswego, where youth and their parents gathered in Millennium Park dressed in traditional Chinese outfits called Han Fu to celebrate the occasion.
Han Fu culture refers to the traditional fashion and clothing that originated in ancient China 5,000 years ago during the Huang Di era (3000–2000 BCE). Over the course of 83 dynasties (21 well known ones) Han Fu clothing styles evolved and were passed down through generations. Han Fu Culture is considered a part of intangible cultural heritage, which is crucial for preserving cultural diversity

and promoting intercultural dialogue. The United Nations recognizes the important role that cultural diversity plays in promoting social cohesion and building peaceful, inclusive societies.
To reward the youth and parents for their hard work spreading awareness and handing out brochures on resource and ways to recycle, they were treated to ice cream at Lake Oswego local store Salt and Straw.

Chinese Rose Princesses Ophilia Lu, Jorie Liang and other youth scripted and directed a show featuring Han Fu to promote Chinese traditional fashion. More than 800 people attended the fair, it was such a great success.
On July 28th, the Lan Su Chinese Garden will host the Dress Han event in the garden featuring the Han Fu Fashion show organized by Kerry Yu and her team. Keep an eye out for ticket sales on their website, lansugarden. org. For further inquiries, please contact Kerry at email@example.com.
BOREDOM BUSTERS FOR A SUNNY SUMMER!
By Donovan Darling, Staff Writer
Kids and adults alike CAN’T WAIT for summer to roll around every year. But without fail and after a few weeks, the phrases “I’m bored” and “There’s nothing to do!” are inevitable. Here are some fun things to do to BUST that summer boredom before it starts!
Climb a Tree
This might sound weird, but there’s no better way to feel like a kid or literally get into nature. Read a book or see how high you can climb!
With modern cameras, almost anyone can take great photos. Look up a photo challenge or list of practice shots, and get out there. It’s actually quite fun!
Take a Hike
Just getting outside in the fresh air is a great way to enjoy summer. Long or short, flat or steep, woods or beach, it doesn’t matter. Bring some snacks and drinks!
Go to a local state or national park, the beach, or even your backyard! If you’re not a big camper (me neither), roast some marshmallows and hotdogs in a fire pit instead.
A favorite of mine and actually very easy. You just need a blender, popsicle mold and sticks, frozen fruit and juice, yogurt, and honey or agave nectar. And it’s a healthy and fun way to eat fruit.
When it’s finally warm enough to swim in the PNW, find a creek, river, lake, or local beach. If you don’t love swimming, at least get your feet wet, collect rocks or shells, or watch the wildlife.
No, not biking. Upcycling is where you take free old junk and make it into art or something useful, like a bathtub becoming a planter box. The possibilities are endless. Look online!
Play a Sport
Anything from yard games like croquet or cornhole, to golf and tennis, sports are great for exercise, endorphins, and vitamin D. And an easy way to socialize and get outside.
Just the family, or invite friends over. Pop some popcorn, bust out the candy and soda. For a real adventure, rent an outdoor projector and watch outside on a white sheet or blank wall.
