The goal of The BRG is simple and can be easily read at the top of each month’s cover: “Connecting Community”. To me, this means connecting people who live, work or shop in and around Beaverton with the abundant local resources available here. So, whether you’re a shop or a shopper, we’ll do our best to introduce you to each other. Are you looking for something to do out of the house? We’ve got you covered there too with a variety of options in our Out & About section.

n the wake of last month’s verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin, I’d like to offer words of solace, encouragement, and solidarity. Chauvin was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd and a jury unanimously found him guilty on all counts. As the verdict was delivered, a mixture of relief and grief washed over me. This time, the system worked. Now, we need to work on the system. Many are wondering whether this has brought about real change in our community. One positive outcome seems to be a general acknowledgment that systemic racism is real. Following the increased calls for racial justice, our Human Rights Advisory Commission did the hard work of developing recommendations IRUWKH&LW\WRDGRSWVSHFL¿FDOly on policing and addressing racism. We are actively engaging with those recommendations, and I am hopeful that they have provided the beginning steps for the City and for the community. I want to say clearly that I believe Black Lives Matter. I have heard our community calling for racial justice and accountability. I know that we

have not yet taken big, public steps in this regard. ,¶YHEHHQLQRI¿FHMXVWRYHU 4 months and those months KDYHEHHQIUDXJKWZLWKGLI¿FXOW conversations such as these with my council colleagues, staff, and community members. I know the City can and must do more. As your Mayor, it is my duty and honor to be engaged with and aware of what’s going on in our community. I am committed to tirelessly working to locate and uproot systemic racism. Racism, in all its forms, will not be tolerated in our City. I recognize that we are not all on the same page, but I believe we can open the lines of communication. Empathy is going to be one of our most valuable traits as we engage in conversation. Regardless of political leanings or opinions, we are all human EHLQJVRILQ¿QLWHZRUWKDQGZH need to heal together. We remember George Floyd.

Lacey Beaty was elected Beaverton’s Mayor in 2020. Prior to serving as Mayor, she served for six years on Beaverton City Council.

Art and creative design can inspire And make people happy

Susan Charnquist working on her mural at Ickabod’s.



id you know that the design of a community affects the mental health of its residents and visitors? It’s true! Art and creative design not only inspire people and make them happier, but it has also been proven to lead to increased community engagement and social connection. You know that feeling when you walk past a long concrete wall that feels like it pushes you against a road ZLWKEXV\WUDI¿F"7KHUHLVQR greenery, no creativity, and no sign of actual human life. These environments have


been proven to increase our stress levels and elevate feelings of fear and uncertainty. That’s why we love art in downtown! It makes us feel human again. Go check out the new mural on the Ickabod’s wall!

Susan Charnquist has done an amazing job here, and you can enjoy it from the 1st Street Dining Commons. Downtown has around 15 murals, and we are creating a walking map for you to discover them all.

Matt Burney and Tualatin Valley Creates also recently installed a musical bench on 1st Street in front of Costume Avenue. Go check it out, turn the crank, and experience it for yourself. Take a moment to see how it makes you feel. Downtown is meant to be our safe space. For all of us. When you come here, we want you to feel alive, joyful, inspired, creative, and connected. That’s why we aren’t stopping here. We are exploring opportunities for more art, community garden space, and pocket parks. Pocket Parks are little SDUNVWKDW¿WEHWZHHQEXLOGings and enliven underused spaces. You can help make it happen! Join us.

Meet Brianna Jones: Hero at Work

Common Name: Sword Fern

Her mission is to keep people safe

Named after its dagger-shaped leaflets




hy am I washing my hands so much when I’m alone in my apartment?” is a question I have asked myself during the pandemic. COVID has brought back pesky rituals like the use of soap and sanitizer to the point that my knuckles often resemble those of a bare-knuckle brawler. While I do my best to manage and rationalize, I feel enormous gratitude for those workers who continue to keep our workplaces clean throughout this entire, germ-ridden ordeal. One of these heroes is Brianna Jones. Brianna, a graduate of Westview High School and Beaverton Community Transition Program, performs custodial tasks for a large employer in the Portland Metro area. When asked to describe her job, Brianna stated her mission “is to make sure there are no germs and to keep people safe.” Wynter Lyons, Brianna’s job coach from Dirkse remarked, “Brianna can work long shifts and she was often the only person

• Binomial Name: Polystichum munitum • Soil Type: rich, well-drained soil • Sunlight: partial to full shade • Form: upright and spreading • Foliage: evergreen • Fruit/Flower: none

S on campus. Brianna cleans and sanitizes the whole time and holds herself accountable.” Like many of us, Brianna enjoys spending time with her cats and watching Hallmark Channel but relishes the opportunity to work and be productive outside of the house. Recently, when her favored pair of pink headphones broke, Brianna upgraded to a set of Bluetooth phones with her own hard-earned money.

Dirkse Counseling and Consulting supports many heroic individuals like Brianna who experience disabilities while making a positive impact in the community.

For more information about Dirkse’s mission and programs, please call (503)-265-9256.

New ways, new methods, new ideas are crucial to staying competitive Old ways worked in old times BUSINESS BUZZ


ecently, when planning a corporate team building event with a client, I was given some very fascinating information. Her work group was made up of team members who’d been on the team for 20+ years...and newer team members who’d been on` the team for 3-5 years. While everyone worked well together (for the most part) ... she was concerned that the longer legged team members were a bit reluctant to change. They were not overly interested in listening to the new ideas, from the newer team members. This was a problem. While

the “old ways” worked in “old times” and while some (or even all of the “old ways”) still worked in current times... new ways, new methods, new ideas were (and are) crucial to growth and adaptation. We work in a fast-paced world. Things are happening and change at a lightening pace. Saying, and believing

4 – Beaverton Resource Guide | Volume 11 - Issue 5 (May 2021)

“That’s the way we’ve always done it” might not hurt you today...BUT...it just might kill you tomorrow. Especially with competitors who adapt quicker than you do. Now, I am not saying get rid of the old ways and methods. If it’s still working, run with it. BUT, it’s your job as a manager, owner or CEO to watch,

listen and be ready to move. It’s impossible to grow (or even stay alive) without adaptation and new ideas. Listening to someone new to your team...investigating new ideas...giving serious time and consideration to input from even the youngest or least experienced team members has merit! We live in an era that is faster than ever. Customers have more options. Most of us have more competitors. So be restless. Keep Looking...Keep Listening...Keep Experimenting... Keep Adapting! IT’S FUN!!!

ConnectingCommunity BEAVERTON BUSINESS

What is a brand and do you have one? What is a brand audit?

Make it easy and simple to read LOCAL BUSINESS “Your brand is what people say about you when you aren’t in the room” ~ Jeff Bezos, Amazon


n ranches, a farmer would create a symbol that represented their family name or perhaps their ranch name and brand their livestock so it would be known whose it was. Branding for your business is similar: you have come up with a name or a symbol that represents what you’re about and you are presenting that to the customer. The idea is they will associate that name or symbol with the services you are offering. Branding doesn’t have to be difficult or costly Branding these days seems like a big undertaking that costs a lot of money. That’s not the case as you have a brand once you establish your business. Now it’s up to you to make that brand known to the consumer. Why would you do that? Let’s say you have a printing company. You want people to always come to you instead of your competitor. You create a symbol to represent your business (this is a brand) and perhaps it’s your initials in a circle. You want as many people as possible to

associate that symbol or logo with where to go for printing, good service, fair pricing, and any ideals you have formed your business on. Simple and easy to read How do you do that? Your logo should be simple and easy to read. You want it to be prominent on your website and any marketing materials you use such as the street or building signage, direct mail, newsletters, even your email signature. Pick a color or two that is meaningful to you and carry that out with your logo and when you make any graphics so people will associate that color with your business too. Think of Target and its red bullseye logo. The other part of branding is your messaging. What is it that you are selling or doing for people? Is

that clear on your website? On your signage? You can have a stunning website but if people can’t tell what you do it means nothing. People are searching around wondering what it is you actually do- that isn’t clear branding. If you wonder if that’s you, ask a friend to look at your website or promotional materials and give you feedback on how clear your message is.

If you’ve been in business for a while, you can do a brand ‘audit’. Take the time to see if you are doing all you can to tell your story. Identify your strengths and weaknesses, the customer’s perception of you, and decide if you need a strategy to make your brand stronger RUEHWWHU7KH¿UVWVWHSLV\RXU website as mentioned before, second is reviews- do you have any? Are you promoting them? Are you using Google My Business to your advantage? That leads us to social media- which channels are right for you and are you using them? Do you take the time to post and follow up? These days that’s an integral part of running a business. Do your images on social media adequately represent what it is you do or stand for? Does the text do the same? What is your competition doing? Can they inspire you? Are they doing something innovative

you haven’t thought of? Or do they spend more time on their messaging and/or is their messaging clearer than yours? Lastly, what do your customers say? Not getting feedback? Offer DJLYHDZD\LIWKH\ZLOO¿OORXW a quick card with a survey or if they will sign up for an email from you with a survey. If you are comfortable and see customers on a regular basis, just ask for their feedback. People genuinely want to help you be the best you can be. So sure, you can pay a company lots of money to create a brand for you and get the word out but you can do this yourself too. Sometimes you might need to spend a little money to help make a logo or on something such as a direct mail piece to advertise your business. Know there is a return on your investment with potentially lifelong, loyal customers. As always, you can email joanne@ winehausco.com to ask your small business marketing questions.

WineHaus Marketing is located in downtown Beaverton. We work with small and mid-sized businesses wanting to improve their online presence.

A Fresh Air: Pug Adoption

Introducing Ming I’m very well behaved PET ADOPTION


ight-year-old Ming came to WKH3DFL¿F3XJ5HVFXHDIter her human died earlier this year. She was the center of her human’s world and her human was the center of hers. Although she has been to a dog daycare many times, she is most happy to be next to a human supervising their every move. She is quite the helper and a constant companion. Ming has been very well cared for and very well loved. She will only need a dental before she is ready for adoption, but is otherwise almost ready to go. She does well in her foster home where she lives with four other pugs, but she will do best as the only dog soaking up

all of the attention and love. She is very well behaved, is house broken and has put on her wish list a human who is home quite a bit to spend their days (and nights) with her. Adoption Donation $300

doptions at the Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter are currently suspended due to the pandemic. However, all our available animals are transferred to our partner organizaWLRQVWR¿QGJUHDWKRPHV9LVLW RXUZHEVLWHWR¿QGDOLVWRIRWKer area shelters and rescues that may be able to match you up with your new family member. Services we provide beyond adoptions include: • Reuniting lost animals with their owners. • Providing medical treatment to animals who come in as lost or stray. • Investigating dog bites, animal cruelty and neglect. • Caring for animals in emergency situations.

Pacific Pug Rescue is a non-profit operated by volunteers and rely solely on donations from the community. With no paid staff, every penny of your tax-deductible donation goes to help save Pugs in Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

I know my cat has a microchip, but I’m not sure which company it is with or whether my contact information is correct. What can I do?

If you are interested in adopting one of our wonderful pugs or have questions, visit us at www.pacificpugrescue.org.

We encourage people to regularly check their chip to make sure it is still

functioning and that the contact information associated with it is current. It can take a few steps to verify everything, but the time spent will be well worth it if your pet ever gets lost. 1. Have your pet scanned for a microchip. Your YHWHULQDULDQ¶VRI¿FHZLOO probably do that free of charge and will be able to give you the chip number. You can also call Animal Services for a free appointment to bring your pet by the shelter and we’ll scan it for you! 2. Go to PetMicrochipLookup.org and enter the number. This database from the American Animal Hospital Association will tell you which company manufactured the chip. 3. Next, call that number

or go to the company’s website to verify or update your information. 4. Finally, you can create a secondary registration at FoundAnimals.org for free. We can also add your pet’s microchip information to our records here at Animal Services.

What is the right amount of water for you? • Poor emotional state • More frequent UTI’s • Decreased immunity

Hydrate for life HEALTH


ou’ve heard it before– make sure you drink enough water. Knowing your minimum water requirement, ZKDWEHQH¿WV\RXJDLQIURP proper hydration, and what you risk when you’re not drinking enough H2O, will motivate you to keep that bottle of water handy. What is the right amount of water for you?

If you’re an average adult drinking less than two liters (approximately eight and a half cups) of water a day, you’re not getting enough. Aim to get at least three liters (about 13 cups – that’s 104 ounces!) for optimal health. Another way to think of this is

roughly one gallon of water a day, or half as many ounces as your total body weight. Some factors like caffeine, alcohol, and smoking contribute to decreasing your body’s hydration levels. Keep that in mind as you balance your hydration needs.

Moms, where would we be without you? help! It may be humbling, but it is okay. I believe that we should support each other in the community. Whether in your neighborhood, your church, or a parent of your child’s friend, there is someone that can offer you the helping hand you need.

No really… HEALTH


ince it is May, thoughts turn to mom. Afterall, Mother’s Day is in May. Dads and their children work to pamper mom with handmade cards, gift cerWL¿FDWHVIRUPDVVDJHEUHDNIDVW in bed and more. A question that often gets overlooked however, is “How is mom’s health?” Now understand, I am not a mom. I do have children that have a mom and a stepmom. I also have been taking care of moms in my practice for over 29 years. So, I do have some awareness into the health of a mom. From frequent sleepless nights, carrying infants and toddlers, to potty training, to cooking and cleaning, plus often times also working a fulltime job too – moms get tired! With this fatigue, moms get run down. When this happens LOCAL ADVICE


To the kids reading this

– moms get sick. Now I’m not talking about a ‘simple’ cold or cough. Few moms have time for those and wouldn’t let on if they were struggling with these anyway. What I’m referring to is serious, long time developing illnesses. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes just to name a few. High levels of stress contribute to chronic health conditions. The less the stress, the lower the risk of developing major health issues – or aggravating them if they already exist.

It’s okay to stop and rest For you moms out there – it is ok to stop once in a while and rest. Now I can hear some of you saying, “But you don’t understand!” You are right, I don’t. Every situation is differHQWO\GLI¿FXOW,ZDVSULPDULO\ raised by a single mom and VDZWKHVWUXJJOHVDQGVDFUL¿Fes that she made. At the same time, if you don’t take time out for you once in a while, it will potentially have life altering consequences. Moms, it is okay to ask for

You should be asking how can we truly honor our mom? Simple do so every day, 365 days a year. If you are still living at home, show your mom love regularly. Take some initiative to help out around the house. Cleaning your room as a ‘gift’ for mom on Mother’s Day is nice, but how about keeping your room clean all the time? You could do the dishes a night or two per week. If you want to get fancy, plan and prepare a meal once every couple of weeks. Another helpful idea – don’t add more work to your mom’s already busy workload.

Call your mom! For those of you that have moved out of the house – call your mom! Not necessarily every day, but regularly. Once every week or two would be nice. You can continue to show her some love even though you are not under the same roof. An unexpected FDUGRUERXTXHWRIÀRZHUVZRXOG be a welcome treat for your mom. (By the way – dads like to hear from their children too.) Whether you are reading this in May, or a reprint thereafter, know that it is never too late to show your mom know how much you care!

Love your mother with a gift of relaxation and health Healthy gift ideas for Mother’s Day HEALTH


n honor of Spring and Mother’s Day, I thought to celebrate the feminine, nurturing, creative, receptive and intuitive aspect of the people we love and of ourselves. Some of them may not even female! Here are some ways we can embody a Mother’s heart and gift a friend or relative (or our own self) something special. Herbal Teas to enhance intuition: Steep a cup and sip by candle light • Lavender: calming, reduces stress and induces dreams • Chamomile: antispasmodic, helps induce sleep, very gentle • Mugwort: named after the Moon goddess Artemisia,

Here is a photo of my mother, Arna Means holding her great granddaughter, Lupine (1933-2015).

mugwort opens up connections to the psychic realms (not safe for pregnancy and lactating women). Herbal Baths: wonderful ways to release tension, relax, enhance libido or sleep or dreams. • 2-3 cups of Epsom salts mixed with 5-15 drops of essential oils then added to a bath.

• Good essential oils include rosemary, cedarwood, roman chamomile, lavender, sweet orange. Seed cycling is the practice of consuming different seeds during 2 phases of the month and is used by many women to support their menstrual cycle. Seeds are high in essential fatty acids that reduce LQÀDPPDWLRQ¿EHUWKDWZLOO

improve digestion, lignans that support hormone health and contain protein. If a person is not menstruating, seed cycling can follow the phases of the moon (New Moon/Full Moon) and of course can be done by all sexes. • Phase I (New Moon/period to ovulation) consume 1 7%63*URXQGÀD[DQG pumpkin seeds • Phase II (Full Moon/ovulation to menses) consume 1 TBSP Ground sesame and VXQÀRZHUVHHGV • <RXFDQDOVRF\FOH¿VKRLO and evening primrose oil is a similar fashion

• •

or methyl folate instead of folic acid. For PMS – vitamin B6, Magnesium For nursing mothers – fennel tea, fenugreek help with milk production. )RUPHQRSDXVDOKRWÀDVKHV – black cohosh, maca, wild yam motherwort Vitamin D for bone health and immunity

)RUDOORIXV±¿QGVRPH time to lie down in the grass and let Mother Earth hold you. Thank her for being a GREAT MOTHER! HAPPY MOTHER’s DAY!!

Nutrients that support phases of a woman’s life: • Magnesium is great for menstrual cramps, sleep, headaches, constipation and jaw clenching. • Folate is important in pregnancy, protecting the spinal cord and brain from defects. I like it as folinate

Every generation has something to offer You are a role model SENIOR LIVING


very generation of life receives a moniker: the Millennials, Generation X, Baby Boomers, and the Silent Generation to name several. Do you know why one is called the silent generation? It was because they were raised being told that they should be seen and not heard. My parents shared a little about this phrase with my siblings and I on numerous occasions throughout our childhood. They passed it on from their upbringing given that they were born within the Silent Generation between 1928 and 1945. Because we are raised by the generation and generations before us, oral history and traditions get passed

down. Those who became adults after World War II are renowned for their tireless work ethic, attention to detail and for getting things done. The women in my life such as my mom, a friend

who is like a second mom and others I know who are in their 80’s have been strong role models in my life. Even as they age, they are indefatigable. It doesn’t matter if they are exhausted, if something

needs to be done, they do it. They do not put it off, they do not use an excuse. I admire this trait greatly because if I am tired, I wane on the house cleaning, which is my biggest self-pet peeve. A trait that I respect from those of Generation Y (1980’s - 1990’s) is their awareness of the planet and their role in taking care of it. Recycling, using options to plastic and buying organic are a few great examples. That these young adults have grasped such an important concept such as their carbon footprint on the planet is wonderful and inspiring. All of us can think of a teacher, a parent, a coach, someone in our life that has had a positive impact. They encouraged, believed, and demonstrated possibility. As an individual, never forget to live your best life.

Others are watching and being inspired and you don’t even know it. It is our daily decisions that create a life and those choices are powerful, more so than you know. Never stop believing that you matter because there is a neighbor, a child, a young adult who needs just what you have to offer to show them that life is possible and wonderful. You are a role model.

Here’s a long-lasting Mother’s Day gift The gift of knowledge for her financial future FINANCE


other’s Day has almost arrived. As an adult, you can fully appreciate all your mother has done for you, so, on this occasion, you may be happy WRJLYH0RPÀRZHUVFDQG\ jewelry or something similar. But Mother’s Day is here and then it’s gone. Is there a longer-term gift that can make a real difference in your mother’s life? Actually, there is –

The gift of knowledge for her financial future 6SHFL¿FDOO\WKHUHDUHWZR key areas in which you may be able to provide valuable help to your mother: long-term care and estate planning. But don’t panic – you don’t have to be an expert in either one of these subjects. You can, however, steer Mom – and possibly your other parent, too, if one is in the picture – in the right direction. Let’s take a quick look at both these topics.

First, consider long-term care If your mother is in good health, you may not have thought much about whether she would eventually need an extended stay in a nursing home or the services of a home health aide. But the odds aren’t necessarily in her favor: About 70 percent of adults who reach 65 will eventually require some type of long-term service and support, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. And this type of care is expensive: The annual median cost for a private room in a nursing home is more than $100,000, and it’s nearly $55,000 per year for the full-time services of a home health aide, according to a survey by the insurance company Genworth. Unless your mother has accuPXODWHGDJUHDWGHDORI¿QDQFLDO resources, she likely won’t be able to pay these costs out of pocket without jeopardizing her ¿QDQFLDOLQGHSHQGHQFH)XUWKHUmore, Medicare typically pays only a small portion of these expenses.

To help your mother deal ZLWKWKLVSRWHQWLDO¿QDQFLDO threat, you might want to suggest VKHPHHWZLWKD¿QDQFLDOSURIHVsional, who can explore possible strategies and products designed to address long-term care. And the sooner, the better, because these solutions will become more expensive and challenging the older your mother gets.

Second, take a look at her estate plan The second topic you may want to bring up with your mother is her estate plan. Has she drafted a will? Has she safeguarded her wishes by creating the necessary legal documents? These could include a durable SRZHURIDWWRUQH\IRU¿QDQFes, which allows her to name VRPHRQHWRPDQDJHKHU¿QDQFLDO affairs if she becomes incapacitated, and a durable power of attorney for health care, which allows someone to make medical decisions for her if she is able to do so herself. Having her estate plans in order can help protect your PRWKHU¶V¿QDQFHVDQGHQVXUH her legacy is honored – which

is almost certainly an outcome she would keenly desire. So, if your mother doesn’t already have a comprehensive estate plan, encourage her to see a legal professional to start the process. Helping your mother protect herself from the catastrophic costs of long-term care and the chaos of an inadequate estate

plan may not sound like a typical Mother’s Day offering, but your actions can help keep Mom in a good place in life –and that’s a pretty valuable gift.

Wilma got a repair quote that was both unexpected and expensive It’s always a good idea to get a second opinion

The engine in Wilma’s car was in near perfect condition!

AUTOMOTIVE Q&A Hello Loyal Beaverton readers.

Try an independent repair place


hanks to all of you who have written and called in. I greatly appreciate it! With all that is going on in today’s world, there is also a shortage of new and used vehicles causing vehicles prices across the board to shoot up through the roof! This means that for many of us, it’s more important than ever to take care of the vehicles we have instead of buying in a seller’s market. It’s okay to get a second opinion A few weeks ago, I received a call from a elderly widow named Wilma who recently took her 19-year-old car to the dealership for routine maintenance. She was shocked when the service advisor came back

dealership mentioned. And for a car almost 20 years old, there weren’t even tiny leaks, none whatsoever! Sadly, I explained to Wilma that she had been misled about her vehicle’s condition. On the contrary, her car was in near-perfect condition.

saying she needed a water pump, timing belt and front engine seals totaling $2700! She was a bit surprised at this since the vehicle had the timing belt and water pump replaced only a couple years ago at this very dealership. She had also driven less than 7k miles in that time. Needless to say, she was suspicious and instead of getting the repairs, she went home, picked up her copy of the BRG and called me, the Beaverton Car Guy, to ask if all this was actually possible.

Wilma obviously needed a second opinion and since I live just a few blocks away near Hart Rd., I told her I’d be right over to help, free of charge. Wilma’s car did not need expensive repairs Upon arrival, Wilma greeted me and opened the garage door revealing a near perfect 2002 vehicle (model omitted to protect the privacy of the dealership in question). I inspected the engine from above and below and didn’t see anything wrong with any of the items the

With trust in her dealership gone, she asked where else she could take her car in for maintenance so I happily gave her some options for a few good and honest independent repair shops in Beaverton. I was happy to be of help and prevent her from being taken for a ride that she could not afford.

In conclusion, while there are many good dealerships in town, just like independent repair shops, you can’t trust them all. It’s okay to say no to a pushy service advisor trying to sell you expensive repairs. In fact, getting a second opinion is probably the smartest thing you can do before saying okay to expensive repairs.

We were just two and a half hours away when we got the phone call that told us that all reservations were cancelled. So much for going to a hot spring every year! In the meantime, to satisfy my longing to visit a hot spring, I’ve found myself looking online for the best places to visit all over the state.

then if they don’t like it we’re back to square one,” Katie said. Beaverton City Library’s storytime videos a big hit among children during the pandemic For younger children, the library’s YouTube channel has been a pandemic hit. Before COVID-19, a handful watched the videos. Now the channel has hundreds of followers. When the library closed in March 2020 to visitors, staff cranked out a series of children’s videos in just two days to take the place of in-person storytime. “We couldn’t do storytime and families were just looking for something to do with their kids,” said Jennifer Wolf, Children’s Librarian. The librarians have found other

ways of using their YouTube channel to introduce or re-introduce the library to young readers. There’s Zoom storytime as well and the library plans to keep that up even when it fully reopens, so children can still be read to even if their families can’t bring them to the library. “We’ll still have an option especially for families with very young children they haven’t been vaccinated yet.

Park Your Phone commute times. Don’t be the reason your loved one caused a crash. • Be a role model for your children and teach them the dangers of distracted driving.

A message from ODOT and the Beaverton Police department PUBLIC SAFETY


ccording to the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) “a distraction occurs when a driver diverts attention to something not related to driving that uses the driver’s eyes, ears or hands.” There are four classifications of driver distractions: 1. Visual – looking at something other than the road, such as a cell phone. 2. Auditory – hearing something not related to driving, such as a passenger. 3. Manual – manipulating something other than the

wheel, such as vehicle controls. 4. Cognitive – thinking about something other than driving, such as work deadlines. Most distractions involve more than one of these types, with both a sensory – eyes, ears, or touch – and a mental component. Using a cell phone while driving usually involves DOOIRXUFODVVL¿FDWLRQVRI distraction.

Using a cell phone while driving can be deadly, the same result can occur with many other distractions like: moving objects around in your vehicle, adjusting vehicle controls or the radio, eating or drinking, diverting your attention off the road to other occupants of the vehicle, diverting your attention off the road to people or events occurring outside your vehicle, or just being inattentive or daydreaming.

What can you do to help stop distracted driving? • Park your phone. Put you phone somewhere in your car you can’t access it while you are driving. No text or call is worth it. • Use cell phone applications or imbedded software to block text messages and phone calls while the vehicle is in motion. • Avoid calling or texting your loved ones during their

The Beaverton Police Department will be doing enhanced patrols targeting distracted driving throughout the year. These enhanced patrols will be funded by an ODOT grant. Remember, You Text You Pay.

Please continue doing your part in making our community a safe place to live and work.

Kurt Wilson, Interim City Manager


eaverton voters approved a new city charter in the May 2020 election that changed the city’s form of government from a strong mayor to a council manager structure. The Beaverton Charter of 2021 became operational on Jan. 1. The city appointed Kurt Wilson interim city manager as of Jan. 1. The interim city manager supports the transition to the new city charter and the recruitment, selection and early onboarding of a long-term city manager. A public survey to help City Council choose the best person for Beaverton was conducted earlier this spring. The permanent city manager application period ended Apr. 11.

In Old Town, the Library Fountain renovation is underway to further enhance vibrancy in our city center. When complete later this year, the fountain will include structural upgrades and programmable jets, lights and sound to enrich community enjoyment in and around City Park. A new Senior Affordable Housing Project on Southwest 5th Street also is in development.

Located at the site of the existing community center, the space will include deeply affordable units next to established amenities, public transportation and social services. The city thrives as an ethnically diverse, welcoming city, where all its residents are an essential part of the Beaverton community but many existing residents increasingly struggle to remain in Beaverton. The city’s affordable housing activities focus on helping households experiencing homelessness; increasing quality affordable rental housing; providing homeownership opportunities, and developing policies geared toward ensuring Black, Indigenous and Communities of Color have access to these opportunities. “During public engagement and outreach, more senior affordable housing was idenWL¿HGDVFULWLFDOO\LPSRUWDQW to our community members,” said Community Development Division Manager Cadence Petros. “We explored a number of locations and the community center site remained the best positioned for a community

ate spring ushers in the presence of rhubarb. Most shoppers aren’t quite sure what to do with this hardy perennial and we’re here to help fill in the gaps. From pie to chutney to BBQ sauce it is quite the versatile vegetable. Add some sugar and these stalks really sing. Our favorite way to enjoy rhubarb is making a syrup that can be used to transform any beverage into a refreshing ode to spring and summer. Ingredients • 2 lbs. Rhubarb stalks, cleaned and trimmed of ends • 4 c. water • 1 ¾ c. sugar

Directions 1.Chop the rhubarb into small pieces. Place the chopped rhubarb in a medium saucepan. 2.Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a medium simmer and let the rhubarb cook for about 20 minutes. Skim any foam that rises to the top. 3.After about 20 minutes, the rhubarb will become mushy and will have lost most of its color. The water

Because the rhubarb breaks down more than raspberries or strawberries, the resulting liquid will be slightly more opaque. 4.Once the rhubarb liquid has been strained, discard the rhubarb. Add 1 ¾ cups of sugar to the rhubarb liquid. Bring back to a boil, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar into the syrup. Let the syrup simmer for 5 minutes till the sugar is completely dissolved, skimming any additional foam that rises to the top. 5.Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely. Pour into a glass container, seal and refrigerate. The syrup should last for several weeks.

Out and About... There is always something to do in Beaverton Learning Corner: Chess with Coach Larry

Scholastic Chess and the Lockdown It’s all about the kids! LEARNING CHESS


cholastic chess players wondered how the year-long lockdown would change chess. School chess clubs closed and in-person scholastic chess tournaments were stopped. There were no more school chess league matches between schools. And private in-person chess lessons switched to skype format, or stopped altogether until things could return to “normal.” Rebecca Holt, President of the Oregon Scholastic Chess Federation, Chad Lykins at Hayhurst, Dennis Chang at OES, Richard Babal at Jesuit and tournament director Ed Addis are just a few of the many people who are working to keep the kids playing chess. They organize chess tournaments that are played on the internet. The tournaments started out small as no one knew how it would work and if the kids would enjoy playing online. It has turned out to be a great success, going from one tournament a month to three or four each month. The tournaments

may continue through the summer. Everyone is hoping there will be in-person tournaments in the fall if schools reopen by then. <RXFDQ¿QGRXWDERXWVFKRlastic chess tournaments at the Oregon Scholastic Chess Federation (oscf.org). Most years the OSCF holds a three-day spring chess tournament at Seaside, OR drawing over 300 players from across the state, but this year it was held online. All the kids miss not only the in-person games at Seaside, but winning the giant trophies ¿OOHGZLWKVDOWZDWHUWDII\ For the past twenty years I have been going to scholastic chess tournaments and have seen the fun that kids have there. Win, lose or draw everyone has a good time. I have heard from my chess playing students that they enjoy playing online, but they really prefer to play in-person so they

can meet up again with their chess buddies to swap stories and show each other their games. That is what they are missing and what online chess cannot give them.

I was gone when my 12 year old attended this workshop. As soon as I walked in the door she was excited to tell me what happened. She really enjoyed it and had great things to say about her experience. She loved the idea of time travel!

My kids spent the next week waving their wands around having a ball...I'm grateful for an opportunity for something that gets them thinking creatively beyond just being stuck at home now...
