Kumon of South Beaverton (Cover story page 12)

What makes Kumon the very best: LOCAL BUSINESS


Many Thanks to our Community Partners!

• Best learning center in the Beaverton area. My child is currently learning calculus while only in 3rd grade. Simply Amazing! • Kumon is a well tested learning system that works wonders. You may think that only overachieving moms have their kids do Kumon, and yes, perhaps many do, but so do the moms (like me) who want their children to be able to whiz through their school homework and feel FRQ¿GHQW DERXW OHDUQLQJ LQ JHQHUDO • This particular Kumon Center is outstanding (having attended others). They really invest in a well trained staff and I’m grateful that they are located at Progress Ridge Volume 12 - Issue 08 (August 2022) | Beaverton Resource Guide – 1

Mayor Lacey Beaty:

“I’m grateful for the BRG’s role in keeping our community connected so that we can build a better Beaverton for all. We are resilient, and together we can recover the American dream.”

Downtown Loop Project Have you heard the latest news?


CEDAR HOUSE MEDIA 10200 SW Allen Blvd, Suite D Beaverton, OR 97005 503-641-3320




’ve been shaking all the trees looking for funding for the Downtown Loop. The Loop spans 20 blocks in our downtown core that goes from The Reser at the north end to our city park and library on the south end. It’s 1.3 miles, with two state highways crossing it, that will link key destinations through wider sidewalks, protected bike lanes, pedestrian crossing treatments, and enhanced bus stops. Beaverton High School is adjacent to the Loop, and students arriving on foot, on bikes, on buses, and in cars need safer roads, bike lanes, and sidewalks. Our goal is to emphasize safety for all while supporting climate-friendly transportation. The project is being developed in tandem with the Downtown Equity Strategy, a city initiative guiding public investments to ensure that downtown Beaverton is an inclusive place for racially diverse communities. The Loop is a major

multi-year construction project which would generate many good-paying jobs. We have longstanding economic potential in downtown Beaverton, and the Loop will help us unlock that potential, linking destination points. Enhancements to the Loop will affect all of the surrounding businesses, which will, in turn, affect each other. More business means more jobs, which means more customers engaging the local economy. This is exactly the kind of synergistic effect I’m here for. I’ll keep you posted as we work to secure funding!

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

A recent study found that 84 percent of people with asthma manage their condition using a mix of traditional and complementary therapies. Chiropractic care is the most popular choice. Chiropractors believe there is a strong connection between asthma and misaligned vertebrae. Chiropractic adjustments reduce nerve interference so the lungs can work properly, potentially reducing reliance on prescription medications and steroids.

Most cars, including electric and hybrid, are still hard to come by High demand and low supply lead to dealer markups AUTO Q&A


ince the beginning of the year, I’ve had many calls from people wanting to purchase hybrid or electric vehicles. Unfortunately, this cannot happen for at least a year as nearly all dealerships have around 100 sold orders with non-refundable deposits. 2022 is not a good year to buy electric. Some Beaverton readers have asked about any car availability and again, the answer is the same. Why? If you’re asking this question, you’re not alone. The simple answer would be to blame the pandemic and resulting supply chain disruptions. When COVID-19 brought the economy to a halt back in 2020, automakers canceled orders for semiconductor chips. Chip manufacturers

Unless your car looks like this, you may want to wait on buying a new one then signed contracts with other businesses making automakers take a back-seat in the supply chain heiroarchy. Back in 2019 and early 2020, large dealerships were selling somewhere around 300 new vehicles with normal allocations, as well as normal productions of new vehicles. With the micro-chip shortage, dealers are getting maybe 25% of their normal amount of new inventory. Manufacturers are not building everything too. With all of the shortages, they are building what makes sense and those are quickly snatched up. In fact, if

you look at many lots, you’ll see models that are not super desirable. However if you need a car, you need a car and many buyers settle. Because of these ongoing challenges, production isn’t expected to return to normal until 2023 and inventory levels may not rebound until the second half of next year. Likewise, substantial cash incentives likely won’t reappear until inventory levels are restored and new-car prices may continue to climb in the meantime. Experts now say that the days of rebates and special

Currently, used vehicle pricing is near 20% of the Kelley Blue Book retail vale, and very few dealerships will sell a new vehicle for less than $5,000 above the MSRP. Some vehicles are being marked up as high as $10,000 above the MSRP and I even heard of one case where a new GM Full sized Diesel Truck was listed at over $20,000 above MSRP!

Crypto: investment or speculation? Let the buyer beware FINANCE


ith cryptocurrencies so much in the news, you might be wondering if you should invest in them. But “invest” may not be the right word – because, in many ways, cryptocurrencies, or “crypto” for short, are more speculation than investment. But what’s really the difference between a speculator and an investor? Probably the main factor is the differing views of time. A true investor is in it for the long term, building a portfolio that, over many years, can HYHQWXDOO\ SURYLGH WKH ¿QDQFLDO resources to achieve important goals, such as a comfortable retirement. But speculators want to see results, in the form of big gains, right now – and they’re often willing to take big risks to achieve these outcomes. There’s also the difference in knowledge. Investors know that they’re buying shares of stock in a company that manufactures products or provides services. But many speculators in cryptocurrency don’t fully comprehend what they’re buying – because crypto just

isn’t that easy to understand. Cryptocurrency is a digital asset, and cryptocurrency transactions only exist as digital entries on a blockchain, with the “block” essentially being just a collection of information, or digital ledgers. But even knowing this doesn’t necessarily provide a clear picture to many of those entering the crypto world. In addition to time and understanding, two other HOHPHQWV KHOS GH¿QH FU\SWRFXUrency’s speculative nature: Volatility – Cryptocurrencies are subject to truly astonishing

price swings, with big gains followed by enormous losses – sometimes within a matter of hours. What’s behind this type of volatility? Actually, several factors are involved. For one thing, the price of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies depends heavily on supply and demand – and the demand can skyrocket when media outlets and crypto “celebrities” tout a particular offering. Furthermore, speculators will bet on crypto prices moving up or down, and these bets can trigger a rush on buying and selling, again leading to the rapid price movements. And many purchasers of crypto, especially young people, want WR VHH ELJ SUR¿WV TXLFNO\ VR when they lose large amounts, which is common, they often simply quit the market, contributing to the volatility. Lack of regulation – When you invest in the traditional ¿QDQFLDO PDUNHWV \RXU transactions are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and WKH ¿UPV ZLWK ZKLFK \RX invest are typically overseen by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Other agencies are also involved in regulating

various investments. These regulating bodies work to ensure the basic fairness of WKH ¿QDQFLDO PDUNHWV DQG WR prevent and investigate fraud. But cryptocurrency exchanges are essentially unregulated, and this lack of oversight has contributed to the growth of “scam” exchanges, crypto market manipulation, excessive trading fees and other predatory practices. This “Wild West” scenario should be of concern to anyone putting money in crypto.

The cryptocurrency market is still relatively new, and it’s certainly possible that, in the future, crypto can become more of an investment and less of a speculation. In fact, Congress is actively considering ways to regulate the cryptocurrency market. But for now, caveat emptor – “let the buyer beware.” This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local financial advisor, Karen Bolin.

Each year falls from windows account for about eight deaths and more than 3,300 injuries to young children in the United States, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue crews want to prevent any devastating window falls from occurring. Window screens are not strong enough to keep a child from falling out of a window. They are designed to keep bugs out, not kids in. Because children frequently land on their heads, many require hospitalization for fall injuries and may have permanent disabilities. In Oregon, a majority of falls occur between May and September but can happen anytime windows are open. The encouraging news is that simple steps can help prevent injuries. As a partner in the Stop at 4 Inches Campaign to Prevent Window Falls, TVF&R urges parents and families to continue their commitment to window safety. Please share the following tips with friends, family, or anyone else who has children

living in or visiting their home. • Keep windows closed and locked when not in use. • Keep furniture and anything a child can climb on away from windows. • Do not open windows more than 4 inches and install window stops. Window stops prevent windows from opening wide enough to allow a child to tumble out. • Window stops should be easily removed by an adult LQ WKH HYHQW RI D ¿UH RU RWKer emergency, as windows serve as a secondary means of escape. • For a double-hung window, open the top portion near the ceiling for ventilation

while keeping the bottom portion closed. • Actively watch children near windows — no device can replace adult supervision. Encourage children to keep a safe distance away from windows. • Ask about window safety when your child visits other homes.

Watch Encanto at Flicks by the Fountain


licks by the Fountain activities begin from 6:30 p.m. The movie will start at dusk on Friday, August 26 and will feature a screening of the movie Encanto. Encanto tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a gift of unique powers and abilities. Once a child reaches a certain age, a ceremony is held where they are introduced to their own room. Before walking in, their gift is revealed as a magical image etched on to their door.

To celebrate Flicks by the Fountain, Tualatin Valley Creates artists each took a door and painted an image of a gift of their choice. How to Help People Experiencing Homelessness During the Summer Heat It can be hard to know how to help those most vulnerable during heat waves, including people with no other safe place to go. There are many ways to support people

experiencing homelessness during the summertime, including these simple ways to make a difference: • Care kits: In many cases, helping with food or clothing is better than giving money. Keep care kits with you that include bottled water, sports drinks, snacks and/or gift cards. Cooling towels and ice packs during warm weather are also great to offer.

• Be kind: If you encounter someone who is homeless, smile and say hello. Acknowledging the person gives them dignity. Engage the person in conversation and listen to their story. This is especially meaningful in a time when stereotypes and misconceptions about homelessness are so prevalent. In addition, the Community Services Program has created a map and list of different resources nearby in Beaverton including bathroom, food, and shelter information.

hen it comes to what most likely will be the last, or the penultimate move in your life, whether motivated by divorce: desire for a more manageable home, move to a senior community, health reasons or to be closer to children and grandchildren, there is often one important aspect that is forgotten that if prepped, will certainly enhance the overall experience. For those of you who are adult children helping parents with the move, it is valuable for you to be aware too as it will help you in the way you support your family members. Now, depending on the ‘why’ for the move, it is the emotional preparation that is so important that is often missed and by taking steps before and during the moving process, it will greatly aid in managing one’s stress, keeping one’s sanity, and even experiencing joy throughout the process. And can’t we all use more joy?

1. Writing - Not new, but important. Start every day writing down 5-10 things you are thankful for because it sets the tone mentally. Even better is to share with a friend and ask them to do it too and tell one another. 2. Exercise - whether taking a walk, doing chair yoga (check out YouTube as it is free - put chair yoga in the search and many will pop up), swimming or pickleball, whatever you enjoy, do it. This stimulates endorphins which make you feel good! Do this at least 3x a week or more. 3. Journal - write about the time you have lived in your home, memories you recall. This can be a gift to the children later. It also helps to take the emotional pain, if that is occurring, and put it on paper and that is powerful. It helps your body and mind not to carry it and at the same time honor the emotions you are experiencing.

In researching Memory Care, seek communities that take a wholistic approach to brain disease, relying on creative, organic methods to palliate the symptoms common to dementia. Many negative behaviors and moods often resolve themselves through more one-on-one attention when we meet the core need for compassion and connection. Ultimately, the decision is a family consensus. The senior, even if challenged by dementia, must be given a voice. For in any situation, the human spirit craves dignity, independence—and choice. Don’t let the complexities

of this decision mask the fact that your instincts are to be trusted. One place will just feel like home. And the staff will feel like family. You’ll know it straight away. We hope that one place is MorningStar.

This story is sponsored by MorningStar Assisted Living and Memory Care of Beaverton, 14475 SW Barrows Road; 503-713-5143. Join us every Saturday for our open house. Overlooking natural wetlands, MorningStar of Beaverton offers 66 suites for assisted living and 38 devoted to memory care, with studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans as large as 974 sqft.

s loved ones age, there are many things family members worry about, like their safety in their home and their ability to care for themselves. But another factor to consider is an aging loved one’s mental health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 20% of people ages 55 or older experience a mental health concern. The CDC also notes that adults 65 or older are more likely to report that they “rarely” or “never” receive the social and emotional support they need. These mental health concerns can manifest in a variety of ways, including depression, anxiety, and cognitive impairment. Free Webinar on Mental Health for Older Adults

Traffic Q&A:

La Strada dei Pastelli Award Winner

With the Beaverton Police Department

Congratulations to Wayne and Cheryl Renshaw

Q: When in a shopping center parking lot, I often see cars take a short cut through empty spaces, (sometimes between two parked cars!) and this seem awfully dangerous. Is it illegal too?



ast month on July 1617, 2022, nearly 40,000 people traveled into Downtown Hillsboro’s Cultural Arts District for Tualatin Valley Creates’ 4th annual chalk art festival La Strada dei Pastelli. There, they saw 25 award-winning and emerging artists from Oregon, California, Virginia and Georgia transform Main Street into a gallery full of colorful and vibrant Legos, pandas, bubbles, and portraits of kids playing. This multi-cultural festival gathered people of all ages, races, abilities, and interests to enjoy live art, local music, vendors, and hands-on activities for the kids. Winning the ‘People’s Choice Award’ was husband and wife team Wayne and Cheryl Renshaw, with their 3D image of two girls playing on bouncy balls. Along with artwork done by professional artists, kids had the opportunity to create their own chalk

ANSWER: Yes and no. Shopping center parking lots are what the law describes as “Premises Open to the Public.” As such, there are only certain statutes that can be enforced on the property. There is no statute that specifically addresses the driving described here. However, one statue that can be enforced on Premises Open to the Public, and generally covers the driving described, is Carless Driving (ORS 811.135). Careless Driving is defined as: driving “in a manner that endangers or would be likely to endanger any person or property.” So, depending on the circumstances, a driver could be cited for Careless Driving for taking that short cut through empty spaces if doing so endangers or would be likely to endanger any person or property (i.e. causes a crash). Q: I see cyclists using the left-hand turn lane riding alongside cars until they make the turn and then go back to their bike lane. Is this legal? We look forward to seeing PDVWHUSLHFHV ¿OOLQJ RYHU squares. There were smiles all you next year! around from on-lookers and For more information, visit https:// participants alike.

ANSWER: Cyclists can use the left-hand turn lane as long as standard lane usage rules are adhered to.

Directions • Cook pasta and drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water. Melt butter in a skillet and add all the vegetables, except tomatoes. Cook the vegetables until tender but still some texture. Add in tomatoes. • Turn off heat and add in cream, parm, and lemon zest. Add the pasta and turn the heat back on to low. Stir until the sauce has coated the pasta, adding a splash of pasta water as needed to thin the sauce. The sauce will thicken again slightly as it heats with the pasta. • Turn off heat and stir in basil. Serve with a sprinkle of more basil, parm, and crushed red pepper if desired. Eat immediately.
