The Beaverton Resource Guide & Business Directory is published by Cedar House Media, Beaverton’s homegrown print and graphics shop.

Start your engines! It’s time to take a virtual drive in this issue down Canyon Road to TV Hwy QBHFT . Look to your right and then to your left and what do you see: new car lots, used cars lots, service centers, body shops, transmissions, brakes, lube & tunes, gas stations, part shops and just about everything else you could need for your automobile. Drive down this stretch of road in your car during the day and regardless of trafďŹ c, you’d be hard pressed to make out the names of the dealerships let alone the signage for the other auto businesses there. So needless to say, it’s for this very reason we created the $BOZPO 4USJQ "VUP Row monthly feature. Each issue we’ll add more detail to the map and more businesses to the directory... anything to help you ďŹ nd what you need for your car without having to turn on the engine! Another new addition in this issue is a locally submitted recipe that we’ll feature in our dining section QBHFT each month. Our expert food photographer, Sammy Gould, has graciously agreed to try them out and take beautiful photos of the results all for the beneďŹ t of our readers.

The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District ¿nished the half-mile segment the ¿rst week of January. It extends from the intersection of Scholls Ferry Road and Allen Blvd to the end of 105th Court (near the intersection of Denney Road and Highway 217). Funded by system development charges, the $1.6 million project means users are able to travel 4½ miles of largely continuous, paved trail between THPRD’s Garden Home Recreation Center and Tigard’s Englewood Park near Scholls Ferry Road.

THPRD project manager Brad Hauschild said electronic sensors show that 70,00080,000 people currently use the trail’s north segment each year, while 120,000 users pass through the trail’s south end tunnel at Scholls Ferry Road. He expects those numbers to increase now that the new segment is open.

“The Fanno Creek Trail is already very popular, and we expect it to be even more popular now that this new segment is Âżnished,’’ said Hal Bergsma, THPRD’s director of Planning. “Until now, when trail users came to the missing link, they had to Âżgure out on their own how to reconnect with the trail. Now, their path is mostly uninterrupted.’’

Home-grown singer makes splash on ‘Idol’ Despite elimination, judges gush about Haley Johnsen’s talent By FOX 12 Staff

A

Beaverton singer who’s been wowing friends and family for years took her talent to the “American Idol� stage and performed for millions. Haley Johnsen, 23, was among the singing competition’s top 24 contestants this season, but was booted when the group was whittled down to 13 singers. Despite her elimination, the “Idol� judges had nothing but good things to say about Johnsen. “It’s tough. Haley is very talented. This top 24 that we had, they were all there because we love them. Because, y’know, we chose them and I think that’s what the American people forget. We love all of them. It’s just that you’ve got to be consistent in order to win this,� said judge Randy Jackson. “Oh, God, I loved Haley. Haley, I still love you. She’s good. Don’t ever stop singing, Haley,� said judge Steven Tyler.

Haley Johnsen performs “Sweet Dreams� on the “American Idol� stage. The Beaverton High School graduate made it into the show’s top 24 contestants.

Johnsen said she had no regrets and did her best. “I know there’s this inner drive within me that’s like, ‘C’mon, go. Fly away. You can do it,’â€? Johnsen told “Idolâ€? producers earlier in the competition. -RKQVHQÂśV YRFDO WDOHQW ÂżUVW HPHUJHG when she was very young, her mother told FOX 12. But it was years until John-

sen stepped onto a stage and dazzled classmates during a homecoming assembly. After graduating from Beaverton High School, Johnsen headed to Oregon State University and performed with an a cappella group. Supporters said Johnsen’s musical ambitions were well known in Corvallis and she would often

sing at local venues. During her stint on the show, Johnsen’s friends and family showed their support by attending viewing parties, one of which erupted into cheers when they saw Johnsen make the cut into the top 24 singers. Earlier in the competition, many of Johnsen’s fans talked about how deserving she is of her success. “Haley is such a sweet person,� said Greta Frey, who worked with Johnsen at a cafe. “It’s just exciting for me knowing that someone who deserves it so much got such an amazing opportunity.� As for the future, Johnsen’s mother has a pretty good guess what her daughter will be up to. “I completely think she’s going to get a record deal at some point. I know that this is what she wants to do full-time,� said Diane Johnsen. Follow the rest of the “American Idol� season Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. on FOX 12 Oregon.

’m always happy to try out new recipes, especially easy slow cooker recipes. So when Wayne Garcia, Anchor at KPTV, shared his recipe for a slow cooker chili and said that it was “the best chili in the world�, I was determined to test it out. Wayne often shares some of his family’s fabulous recipes on his Facebook fan page and I’ve tried them out before. The results, well lets just say that my family is never disappointed and I never have leftovers at the end of the meal. The ingredients for this recipe are easily found at most grocery stores. Personally, I’ve been shopping quite often at New Seasons Market in Progress Ridge. I love supporting local businesses. The access to fresh, home-grown produce is important when cooking and until the Beaverton Farmers Market opens next month, this is my store of choice. Another good reason I shop here is because the friendly butcher cut the piece of Chuck I needed into smalls bits perfect for this recipe.

Downtown Spotlight: Dr. Charles McBride, Optometrist

"HF5ISFF "HF5ISFF "HF5ISFF What age should a child get their eyes checked? By Dr. Charles McBride

G

etting your three year old’s eyes examined is important. In fact, it’s the most important eye examination they’ll ever have. The leading cause of vision impairment in children is called amblyopia (am-blee-OH-pee-uh). It is simple for optometrists and ophthalmologists to treat, but only if we catch it early. In order for the eye-brain connection to form properly, the eyes need clear images during young childhood. Amblyopia results when one eye doesn’t receive a clear image and never learns to resolve detail. Parents don’t detect a SUREOHPEHFDXVHWKHFKLOGVHHVĂ€QH but only out of one eye. The treatment of amblyopia involves patching the “goodâ€? eye for an hour or two per day until the eye-brain connection is formed.

hen life gets you down, you feel overwhelmed, or if you’re struggling in your relationships at home or at work, it can be helpful to see a therapist who can lend a listening ear and provide you with tools to lead a more rewarding and satisfying life. I am a licensed psychologist in Oregon who has been in practice since 2004. I work with adolescents and adults. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I use a variety of evidenced based techniques to help my clients. A growing area of interest for me is the use of Animal Assisted Therapy to help clients and I’ll often bring my therapy dog to pre-determined sessions. I was born to a bicultural family and grew up in Mexico. I am bilingual and value diversity in all its forms.

ublic surveys list ‘lack of time’ as the primary reason people cite for not taking steps to prepare. However, past weather events have shown that it doesn’t take an earthquake to disrupt life as we know it. When an earthquake does occur, the demand on emergency services will be monumental. Families and businesses may be on their own for days while emergency responders focus on the most critical incidents and life safety threats.

dentity theft has been around for as long as your personal information could be used to obtain products or services. As creditors allowed you to accumulate debt, or pay by check instead of cash, the more unscrupulous in society chose to take advantage. We are now faced with a system that, although not broken, does require constant attention and due diligence. Identity theft is a serious crime. It occurs when your personal information is stolen and used without your knowledge to commit fraud or other crimes. Identity theft can cost you copious amounts of time and money.

Candlelighters services include multi-faceted, frontline support to families throughout the different stages of pediatric cancer. They offer a wide array of free and effective support services because their board of directors and active volunteers represent the many faces of childhood cancer - providing knowledge, experience and support to families in need.

They have a presence in each of Portland’s children’s hospitals that involves monthly catered meals for in-patients and clinic patients and their families, a food pantry and Friday snack cart as well as Bedside Buddies and fully stocked toy boxes. Activities such as Summer family camp, social activities and tickets to area sporting/entertainment events provide families the outlets needed to share the frustrations and fear caused by childhood cancer with families in similar situations.

two most influential chefs were Alice Waters and Wolfgang Puck, both of whom preached the importance of cooking with fresh quality ingredients. Our first trip to the Beaverton Farmers Market was a shopping experience like none we had ever had. Being hard core foodies from Los Angeles we were serious about what we ate and this market showed us how to be serious about where it came from. After becoming faithful shoppers every Saturday, the position for market manager, or market master, as it was called then, was announced in the newspaper. I had to apply!! As it turns out, my background in event planning, ornamental horticulture and cooking was enough to convince the Board to hire me. Seventeen years later, there is still no place that I would rather be on a Saturday morning. It is my great privilege to do a job that I am deeply honored to do and that is to connect the finest local producers with an amazing community of consumers.

s many of us know, driving down Canyon Road west towards Hillsboro is like running an automotive gauntlet. Left and right for at least 5 miles, auto related businesses pepper the landscape: from dealerships to window tinting and tire shops, this stretch of road that was once fondly referred to as “Canyon Strip, Auto Row� by old-timers has everything a car owner needs and more. Can you believe it? All this auto awesomeness thanks to a simple man with a vision almost 100 years ago. 2WWR (ULFNVRQ ZDV ERUQ LQ 6ZHGHQ LQ  DQG came to America in 1888, at the age of 19. After arriving in Portland, he worked as an engineer, a trade learned from his father. The 1910 US Census found Otto living in a boarding house run by the divorced Maybelle Carr and her son, Guy.

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom The Guinea Pigs are Taking Over

y children have been hankering for a pet, and since my husband is deathly allergic to dogs we compromised on Guinea pigs, one for each of the older girls as a Christmas gift. The plan went swimmingly IRU WKH ÀUVW WZR weeks; Cosmo and Charlotte, two sweet females, lived happily in their small cage and were a joy to have around. That is until my 3 yr-old started whining because she didn’t have a piggy to hold‌ and until we ordered what was apparently a *XLQHDSLJPDQVLRQWKDWQRZÀOOV a good chunk of the front room‌ and until my eldest daughter’s piggy became sick and had to be returned to Petco for a two-week KRVSLWDO VWD\$1' XQWLO &KDUlotte, whom we thought was just lethargic and a really good eater, gave birth last week, bringing our grand total to four.

Now our living room, which my husband always dreamed would remain the one nice place in the house for adults to hang out, is covered in hay and bark chips. There are loads of old towels to add to my laundry pile, and the girls have snatched most of our produce as “snacksâ€? for the piggies. But what is most concerning is my 3 yr-old’s “loveâ€? for her pet, 'DSKQH7KHUHLVUDUHO\DWLPHRI day where she is not lugging this poor animal around, cooing to KHU VTXHH]LQJ KHU WU\LQJ WR Ă€W her in the playhouse mailbox, all in hope of being the world’s best mama.

But last night my patience wore thin as I had hours of work deadlines looming over me but had to spend an extra hour getting my 3 yr-old to sleep because of the following claims: 1. Her Guinea pig couldn’t fall asleep. 2. Her Guinea pig would like to learn to read and cannot go to sleep until Kiana teaches her. 3. Her Guinea pig would like to be mailed somewhere— 0$,/('³SUHIHUDEO\&KLQD 4. My tea bag was too loud and it woke her. 5. She thought I called her name, so she came downstairs... AGAIN. 6. She remembered tomorrow was library day, but she couldn’t remember how to get to the library. Also, she was fairly sure the librarian wanted her to bring her Guinea pig.
