Mayor's Message T

he strong work of our Beaverton police Department continues to pay dividends as Beaverton was recognized as the safest FLW\ LQ WKH 3DFLÂżF Northwest according to statistics published by the cQ press, The city crime rate rankings 2014: crime in Metropolitan America. The crime rate rankings of cities and metropolitan areas are calculated annually by CQ press using six crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. The rankings include all cities of at least 75,000 residents. The city improved its ranking since last year from 55th in the nation to 42nd in the nation. The city council and I are proud of WKH GHGLFDWHG SROLFH RIÂżFHUV ZKR tirelessly serve our community and keep us safe. This safe-city recognition VHUYHV DV D ÂżQH EDFNGURS IRU RXU outreach efforts to engage the public about repurposing the cityRZQHG *ULIÂżWK 'ULYH EXLOGLQJ into a public safety center. The Oregonian editorial board recently

highlighted the need for Beaverton to have a public safety center that could withstand a substantial earthquake. It’s important that we continue to strategically invest in public safety. This summer, city hall will move to its new location at The Round. This will allow us to UHWUR¿W WKH *ULI¿WK Drive building and create a safer and more HI¿FLHQW SROLFH FRXUW DQG emergency management operations center. Please, the next time you see D %HDYHUWRQ 3ROLFH 2I¿FHU WKDQN them for making Beaverton the safest city in the Northwest—and while you’re at it, attend one of their outreach events. It’s my strong belief that our community needs a public safety center that will serve Beaverton long into the future.

The Beaverton Resource Guide (BRG) is a free monthly community paper written, edited and published in Beaverton, by Beaverton residents and for the businesses and people of Beaverton, Oregon, USA. Cedar House Media published the ďŹ rst edition in April of 2011 featuring local businesses, community news, and the Farmers Market. That ďŹ rst issue was 16 pages. Today, the paper is 32 pages and sponsored by a diverse cross section of public and private community organizations.


Beaverton has so many positive attributes and many go unnoticed. The BRG is our way of giving back to the community by highlighting what makes our city a great place to live, work and shop. With a focus on small, local businesses, we’d like to encourage our neighbors to ďŹ rst visit nearby stores and give them a chance before moving on to businesses outside our community.


With our unique layout, colorful design and exclusive community content, our readers are beyond loyal. Not only do they want to know "What's Happening in Beaverton This Month" but they also agree with our philosophy of: "Shop Local - Give Local - Stay Local." As a business in the Beaverton area, your ad will be seen by those who are most willing to go out of their way to keep their dollars close to home. These shoppers, your potential new customers, also happen to be our best readers! In addition, we don’t print massive quantities and mail them out to uninterested parties. Our papers are located in convenient and high trafďŹ c locations ready to be picked up by those who love Beaverton. With low rates, targeted distribution and a willingness to provide more value than what you pay for, you'll ďŹ nd that we're just as interested in stretching your advertising dollar as you are!

Get a bicycle. You will not regret it, if you live. KJ A half-truth is the most cowardly of lies. KJ Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned. KJ Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often. KJ There’s one way to find out if a man is honest: ask him; if he says yes, you know he’s crooked. KJ The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause. KJ Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words. KJ The Bible has noble poetry in it... and some good morals and a wealth of obscenity, and upwards of a thousand lies. KJ If Christ were here there is one thing he would not be -- a Christian. KJ Obscurity and a competence, that is the life that is best worth living. KJ Often it does seem such a pity that Noah and his party did not miss the boat. KJ The most interesting information come from children, for they tell all they know and then stop. Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the latter often called “the Great American Novel.”

Beaverton Food Cart Pods

What is the Need or the Demand for Food Pods in Beaverton?


ast summer, the Planning Commission held a work session to discuss the possibility of extending operating hours and/ or developing policy changes to allow food cart pods on underutilized property. 7KLV ZDV WKH ¿UVW conversation since the 2009 decision by the city’s Planning Commission to restrict the hours of mobile food carts in Beaverton to seven hours of operation with no overnight parking. The decision also required that only one cart was allowed per site. In response to the questions that arose from this work session, the city is conducting a Food Cart

Feasibility Study. The study includes online surveys for business owners, customers, and property owners, in both English and Spanish. The online surveys are open to the public through April 14, 2014 at www. BeavertonOregon. gov/FoodCarts. “Beaverton supports business innovation and entrepreneurship,� said Mayor Doyle. “Researching the issue of food carts and understanding ways the city can better support such opportunities is important. We hope the community participates

in our online surveys and shares their opinion to help inform any potential policy change.â€? The city’s economic development team will gather data on market demand, land availability, effects on business and local economy, the local regulatory framework, and policy options to bring to the Planning Commission this spring. The primary goals of the study are to understand the need and demand for food carts and/or pods in Beaverton. “We’re exploring various options that could potentially expand mobile food vending in Beaverton, while minimizing negative impacts and ensuring the safety of pedestrian and vehicular WUDIÂżF´ VDLG $OPD )ORUHV HFRnomic development manager. “We

know food carts can help stimulate downtown business districts, support the local economy, and increase small business growth, but we want to do our due diligence to truly understand what works here in the suburban context.� In addition to the online surveys, customer intercept surveys will be conducted in and around the areas where food carts may locate as part of a pilot project to test the pod concept. City staff will compile research on best practices from around the country along with the survey results into a report of recommendations for the Planning Commission. By City Staff

Marine Deputies Prepare for a Great Season


hen you head to Hagg Lake this year, we know few people want a Marine Deputy to interrupt them with a citation. We don't want that either. Our goal is to keep everyone safe, not to raise revenue.

Fine imposed for not having one: $260. Deputies respond every year to save people from drowning, but there are cases at Hagg Lake where people have died due to inexperience, drinking, or exhaustion. These cases are completely

production, Beaverton is ensuring electricity entering the grid comes from pollution-free, renewable sources, which reduces environmental impacts. “By supporting these renewable energy sources since 2007, Beaverton continues to contribute to a bright, sustainable energy future for Oregon,â€? said Mayor Denny Doyle. “This is part of our sustainability strategy to get power through PGE’s green power program and on-site solar generation. We understand the importance of investing in green power to preserve the high-quality of life our community enjoys.â€? In the past, the city purchased offsets for its electricity needs in all of its buildings, but now because renewable energy is less expensive, the city is able to purchase green power equivalents for all operational demands, including VWUHHWOLJKWV WUDIÂżF VLJQDOV DQG water pumping. The city’s support of renewable power has not gone unnoticed. The Environmental Protection Agency awarded Beaverton the Green Power Community of the Year Leadership Award in 2012 and the city has been a Green Power Community Member since 2007.

Mayor Doyle’s commitment to sustainability also won the city the prestigious 2012 Mayor’s Climate Protection Award from the U.S. Conference of Mayors. “The city is stepping up to lead by committing to reduce the environmental impacts of our electric-

ity use,� said Cindy Dolezel, the city’s sustainability manager. “By supporting these programs, we are helping to develop new renewable generation capacity nationwide,� In 2012, the city’s total electricity consumption was 10,768,104 kWh, resulting in an estimated 5,169 tons of carbon dioxide (C02) emissions.

Learn how much it costs and how your home or business can get involved by visiting www. ‡ Beaverton’s Green Power purchase initiative, started in

2007, was called out in the budget that year and historically covered enough energy to offset the electricity use in city buildings. ‡ Mayor Doyle continued these purchases when he was elected and recently, when prices fell drastically, he decided to increase the amount of offsets we purchase to cover all of the city’s electricity demands (including water pumping, electric vehicle charging, streetlights, etc.) ‡ Even though we increased our purchase to cover all of the city’s electricity use, we still are only paying 75% of what we were paying last year. Mayor Doyle made the ultimate decision to purchase offsets equivalent to 100% of the city’ energy use versus just our buildings. ‡ The city pays $2440 per month for 813,296 kWh of Clean Wind at $0.003 per kWh.

Wiener's autobiography is a testimony to an unfolding tragedy taking place in WWII. It has a message what prejudice may lead to and how tolerance is imperative. This book is not just Wiener's life story but it reveals many responses to his story.

The Ribbon Cutting at The Round


n March 13, SKB, the Portland investment company leading the redevelopment of the Round, celebrated the culmination of the many promised renovations, including the parking lots, at The Round with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. The celebration included some words of thanks and enthusiasm from Mayor Doyle as well as gratitude and excitement from Gil Munez, Executive Director of Virginia Garcia on the the new Virginia Garcia Dental Clinic opening at The Round this month. SKB also shared their own excitement of the transformations at The Round. “The Round was meant to be – local, vibrant, green and creative,â€? states Todd Gooding, President of SKB. “We’re so excited WRVHHWKLVÂżQDOO\FRPHWRIUXLWLRQ´

“When we purchased these buildings back in the Spring of 2012, we had quite a task ahead of us,� stated Chris Ebersoll the lead from SKB on The Round. “We were all aware of the stigma attached to this project and the numerous starts and stops that had occurred over the years. But both we at SKB and our partners at WHI also saw the potential to create a focal point for the city of Beaverton – one that brings together businesses, residents and visitors in an environment where they all can thrive.� Chris went on to acknowledge that the City also bought into this vision, and with their move to The Round this summer, we will see a complete transformation of The Round. “It won’t be so quiet around here in the afternoons anymore,� Ebersoll stated. Gil Munoz E.D of Virginia Garcia reminded everyone that with the new pre-natal days scheduled at the Virginia Garcia Dental Clinic, “folks wouldn’t have to worry about quiet at The Round!� After photos, tours of the new

Jason’s Epic Adventure

Raising Funds for Assistance League


o you know who Jason Zacher is? No? Neither did most of the member volunteers of Assistance LeagueÂŽ of Greater Portland until last month when he contacted us and said that he would like to do an “Epic Runâ€? for Operation School BellÂŽ. Our thanks to Shauna Parsons, our newest member of the Advisory Council, who put him in touch with us. On June 19, 2014 Jason will leave from Big Al’s in Beaverton and follow a course through Newberg, St. Paul, Scio, Silverton, Harrisburg, Corvallis and all of the little towns along the way before ending up in Eugene. That is 187.8 miles and Jason is doing this as a one-man team – himself. His goal is to accomplish this in 48 hours. This is an Epic Run. A real go-getter, Jason is committed to raise awareness of his run, he had Bale’s Market Place, Zenner’s Sausages, Painted Hills Meat and Reese’s donate the location and food for a Barbeque on March 8. Next on Jason’s “advertisingâ€? his run is a Papa’s Pizza fundraising event. Papa’s Pizza will donate 50% of the proceeds of every pizza purchased on April 9.

What steps has TVF&R taken to address response challenges? The Fire District has employed several deployment tools and risk reduction measures including:

‡ Single-person paramedic units that respond to less severe incidents (serving 8% of calls). ‡ The targeted use of incident data to address community risks through education (e.g., fall reduction for senior FDUHIDFLOLWLHVÂżUHVDIHW\IRU apartment managers). ‡ Partnerships with businesses which have reduced false alarm calls by 28% since 2006. ‡ Partnerships with city, county and state transportation agencies to encourage improvements that facilitate rapid response. ‡ CPR education, smartphone technology and public access GHÂżEULOODWRUVWRHPSRZHU “citizen respondersâ€? to help cardiac arrest victims (before paramedics arrive). What happens to emergency services if this measure fails? Response challenges would continue to degrade the speed and effectiveness of emergency response services. While maintaining emergency response services

would remain TVF&R’s priority, the current levy provides 14% of total District operating revenues. $V D UHVXOW UHGXFWLRQV LQ VWDI¿QJ and operations would be required. If the measure fails, property taxes on a typical home would decline by $58/year. What impact would this have on a homeowner’s property tax? The replacement levy has a tax rate of 45¢ per $1,000 of assessed value*, a 20¢ increase over the current rate. This would result in a total levy cost of $104 for a typical home with an assessed value of $230,000, a $46 increase over the current levy. The average homeowner would pay approximately $3.53 more per month than the current levy. *Assessed value is different from real market value. By TVF&R Staff

Traditional Armenian Lamb Shish Kebob Greg Mattie’s Easter Recipe

Grilling Method: Make sure you have a hot bed of coals. Place the skewers onto the BBQ and cook for about 6-10 minutes, on each side. A traditional Armenian Easter meal would consist of the shish kebob, rice pilaf, salad, yalanchi (stuffed grape leaves) and choereg, a braided bread formed into rolls or loaves, also a traditional loaf for Easter. However you celebrate Easter, I hope you give this dish a try; it has become an annual staple for my family since 1998. Thank you and Happy Easter! Story & Photos By Greg Mattie


hen you get married, not only do you gain a spouse, you gain an entire new family. My wife, who was raised in an Armenian culture, introduced me to the foods she grew up eating. During Easter, her family would prepare a feast, highlighted by the main course: lamb shish kebob. What is great about this dish is that, with a little patience in prepping, is a relatively simple, yet it LVIXOORIÀDYRUDQGWKHPHDWLVVR juicy and tender. When I prepare this recipe, I like to use boneless

leg of lamb (Costco is the way to The Recipe: go at only $4.99/lb). Since I want ‡ 3-4 lbs of cubed leg of lamb my meat to be lean, I will take the (preferably trimmed of the fat) ‡ 1 large red onion, coarsely extra time to trim as much fat off chopped the lamb before cubing it up to ‡ 1.5 C of chopped Italian kebob-sized pieces. Personally, I parsley ¿QGWKDWWKHH[WUDSUHSWLPHDOORZV ‡ 1 C red wine (I use Cabernet me to make sure every piece of Sauv.) lamb will be void of excess fat or ‡ 1/2 C Olive Oil (gasp!) that irritating, un-chewable vein of gristle that can quickly ruin ‡ 1/2 tbsp kosher salt the experience. ‡ 1/2 tbsp cracked pepper ‡ 6-8 metal skewers Once you have prepped your lamb into kebob-sized pieces, mix

all of the ingredients together (don't be afraid to get your hands dirty). Cover and refrigerate for, at least, 4 hours, to let the meat marinate. Time permitting, letting it marinate all night is even better. Skewer the meat and onion pieces, in this fashion: meat-meatonion-meat-meat-onion...until the skewer is full. Broiling Method: Set your broiler on high. Place the kebobs on a baking dish, cook the meat for 6-10 minutes, on each side, based on doneness.

As a graduate of the Le Cordon Bleu Program in Culinary Studies, I enjoy experiencing the fine dining available at so many of our local eating establishments.

Zoo’s Grouchy Lion Dad Is Latest Internet Star


ove over, Grumpy Cat. A new grouchy feline is taking over the Internet, and — based on his size, demeanor and species — he seems to have assumed pride of place. In a video released by the Oregon Zoo last month, Zawadi Mungu, a fearsome 500-pound African lion, ventures outside with his energetic cubs for the ¿UVWWLPHLQYLWLQJDÀXUU\RISLQW sized attacks on his mane, tail and patience.

A new Black Light Zumba class at THPRDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Conestoga Recreation & Aquatic Center is transforming a Âżtness studio into a Friday night dance party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Friday nights are harder nights to get people to go to the gym, so we wanted to do something special,â&#x20AC;? said instructor Brianne Cameron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zumba is a party anyway, but this is like a rave.â&#x20AC;?

class on Jan. 3 and came back for more two weeks later.

The class is held in the gymnastics room, which is lit only by a string of holiday lights, several black lights, and the Ă&#x20AC;uorescent glow of white and neon clothing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main attraction is that it provides good cardio exercise without the feeling that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a workout,â&#x20AC;? Wickremarachchi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get to learn a variety of dance moves, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like exercise, and I have fun.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The black light adds to that party feel,â&#x20AC;? Cameron said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had students bring in glow sticks and pass them out. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to have them contributing to the atmosphere.â&#x20AC;?

Once class starts, Cameron moves about the dark room, leading her charges with music, encouragement and constant movement. The party starts with her.

Black Light Zumba is held every other Friday at 6:30 p.m. and currently attracts about 10-15 participants for each one-hour session.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like a job,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I teach second grade, so this is my stress relief.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has grown,â&#x20AC;? Wangen said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helping the other Zumba classes because we get new people who like Brianne and sign up for her other Zumba classes.â&#x20AC;? Vijaya Wickremarachchi took the

Traffic Q&A:

Pedestrian, Cyclists, Skateboarder Saftey Tips


here are no winners when a vehicle collides with a skateboarder, bicyclist or pedestrian. Even if the non-driver has followed the letter of the law itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small consolation given the injuries that are sure to occur. From 2012 to 2013 there was a 90% increase in crashes involving pedestrians (for purposes of this article pedestrians will include bicyclists, skateboarders and, in one case, a motorized shopping cart.) Beaverton Police have long recognized that the answer to reducing the number of collisions is one part enforcement, one part design and one part education. The enforcement aspect speaks for itself â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a concerted effort by one RUPRUH2IÂżFHUVWRFRUUHFWGULYLQJ behavior by issuing citations for violations small and large. The design component is assisting engineers with designing and/ RUWKHFRUUHFWLRQRISHUFHLYHGĂ&#x20AC;DZV in road design that may contribute to collisions or unsafe conditions. The education aspect is pulling WRJHWKHUWUDIÂżFVDIHW\SURIHVVLRQDOV at all levels that can provide visual, written, or oral recommendations RQKRZWRDYRLGEHFRPLQJDWUDIÂżF statistic. This portion is the most valuable to the motoring and walking public because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free and can result in avoiding the dangerous situations all together. The reason for a safety message at this time is in part because of several pedestrian vehicle collisions


Â&#x2021; Â&#x2021; Â&#x2021;

Â&#x2021; within a short period of time and an increase in auto-pedestrian crashes between 2012 and 2013. In 2011 we investigated 25 auto-pedestrian collisions that resulted in 2 fatalities and 22 injuries. 2012 had 20 crashes resulting in 3 fatalities and 17 injuries. We investigated a total of 36 auto-pedestrian crashes in 2013 where one person died and 35 were injured. The sobering fact is that people die or are seriously injured, not surprising when you consider the human body is being impacted by 3,000 pounds of steel traveling at various speeds. We can write tickets and attempt to adjust behavior but we can also offer up suggestions on how the pedestrians can increase their chances of an incident free commute. The following recommendations were gathered from multiple sources and are often applicable to more than one means of pedestrian travel. Â&#x2021; Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover your ears with

In order to not get a ticket, can any of my car stick out past the parking sign? A. No. The design of each space is to accommodate the average sized car. When you exceed that space you are violating the letter and spirit of the parking rules. You are, however, at the mercy of the responding parking enforcement person and their discretion.


When stopped by police and the ofďŹ cer asks for proof of insurance, does it have to be a paper version or can I pull it up on my smart phone? How about the drivers license? A. Oregon state law speciďŹ cally allows motorists to use smart phones or similar devices to show proof of insurance. The same option is NOT allowed for the drivers license, you must still carry and present the â&#x20AC;&#x153;realâ&#x20AC;? thing.


Of course it must be okay to back up in order to parallel park into a spot but I recently saw a car on Broadway go in reverse 5 car lengths in order to get an open spot. Is there a law stating how far a car can go backwards on a street? A. The appropriate ORS is 811.480 Illegal backing and penalty. A person commits the offense of illegal backing if the person backs a vehicle the person is driving when it is not safe to do so or when it causes interference with other trafďŹ c upon a highway. (No distance is noted)

When encountering a red light and I want to turn right at the intersection, do I have to stop completely? For questions about this story, call the BPD at 503-526-2260

A: Unless the trafďŹ c control device authorizes otherwise (ie. green arrow), you must come to a complete stop (cease movement) before safely making your right hand turn. If you have a trafďŹ c question that you'd like us to ask the Beaverton Police Department for this column, email us at:

Booked for Success

Central Beaverton Book Drive Runs through May 1st


he Central Beaverton Neighborhood Association Committee (NAC) is currently sponsoring "Booked for Success," a program meant to ensure that all students at William Walker Elementary School have books of their own at home to read, cherish and reread. More than 40% of the students at William Walker are from families living below the poverty line and many do not have books at home to read. Booked for Success aims to provide a $5 coupon to each of the more than 500 students at the school to allow them to select a new book that interests them, which they can take home to read for the summer break. There are several ways to help support the program: Â&#x2021; Drop off new or slightly used books in the donation boxes at Beaverton City Hall 6:*ULIÂżWK'ULYH 

or Bank of America (Cedar Hills Crossing). Â&#x2021; Cash donations can be made in cans located at Beaverton Florists (Hall Blvd.), Beaverton Sub Station (Broadway St.), Beaverton Pharmacy (Canyon Rd.), Falk Ace Hardware (Cedar Hills Blvd); and the following businesses at Cedar Hills Crossing: A Lil' Sumpin' Sumpin' Restaurant, BG Pizza, Cold Stone Creamery, MLY Jewelry and Peachwave Frozen Yogurt.

Senior Citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advisory Committee Have you heard about the Parish Nurse?


s a member of the Senior Advisory Committee, I am always interested in the guest speakers that present at our monthly meetings. Recently I was pleasantly surprised when a guest VSHDNHU IURP WKH ÂżHOG RI 3DULVK Nursing (also known as Faith Community Nursing) made a visit. As a former RN, I had never heard of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parish Nurseâ&#x20AC;? but had always felt the need for such a position when I worked in the hospital. Since I was unaware, I felt that perhaps you, the reader would benHÂżW IURP WKH LQIRUPDWLRQ WKDW ZDV presented to us. Our guest was Sandy Madsen, RN, BSN, Parish Nurse Coordinator, with the Tuality

Healthcare Parish Nurse program. The programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;collaborate with all faiths and community partners to integrate health and spirituality by promoting health and healing in body, mind and spirit for individuals, families and communityâ&#x20AC;?. Programs are available nation wide and are supplementing and enhancing community life in faith communities throughout the United States and abroad. Current activities of the Tuality program include: Â&#x2021; Collaborate with NW Parish Nurse Ministries (NPNM) and local schools of nursing to provide the Foundations of Faith Community Nursing courses annually.

Â&#x2021; Facilitate the Parish Nurse Network of Washington County with monthly network meetings. This offers support and continuing education to local parish nurses. Â&#x2021; Refer and mentor parish nurses and health ministry teams in special health education programs like pharmacy brown bag programs, walking programs, Living Well with Chronic Conditions, Powerful Tools for Caregivers and others that can be offered in the church setting.

Â&#x2021; Networking and collaboration with NPNM and other Parish Nurse Coordinators in the 3DFLÂżF1RUWKZHVWUHJXODUO\ to enhance standards of best practice. Â&#x2021; Networking with community SDUWQHUVQRQSURÂżWVXQLYHUsities and faith communities to offer and/or promote health education opportunities. Does your Parish, Synagogue, Mosque, or Church community presently have a program like this? Faith community nursing is the specialized practice of professional nursing that focuses on the intentional care of the spirit as part of the process of promoting holistic health (mind, body and spirit)

and preventing or minimizing illness within a faith community. Intentional care of the spirit is what makes this practice different from other nursing care. Parish nurses are health educators, advocates, advisors and bridge gaps in health care delivery. By Jim Brooks

Musings of a Beaverton Teen

Busy Beavers: Outstanding Students at BHS

The World-Wide-Wonderful Web An Exploration of Four Popular Web Sites â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a 21st Century teenager with access to Wi-Fi and a need for entertainment- Obviously, I like the internet. And I know my friends and fellow teens do as well (They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call us the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Google Generationâ&#x20AC;? for nothing, right?). So, I thought it would be fun and informative to do a little pro vs. con of four popular sites (IMHO).


1. Facebook Pros: Facebook is a social networking tool that is a great way to connect with friends and family, especially loved ones that are not easily reached or nearby. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an especially witty person, Facebook could be a way to share your thoughts with hundreds of persons. I know that Facebook has been useful even in school when I needed to connect with classmates for group projects or ask for help. Cons: Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of passive aggressiveness on this website, and a lot of drama may ensue from a single post. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed a decline in the popularity of Facebook for teens, as younger children enter the online scene and older people join in on the fun. Facebook was a pioneer and created a whole new way to experience the internet, but it seems like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning to be left behind as we search for different sites. 2. Twitter Pros: In the distant future, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty sure that the Tweets from Twitter will be the new quotes and idioms referenced in daily life. The best part

of Twitter is the ability to interact with celebrities as they share their goings-on and exciting news. With small quips and funny content, you can share your thoughts easily. Have you noticed how in many commercials now, the advertisers use Tweets from normal people to promote the product? Cons: A major part of many of these sites is raking up people who want to follow you. In Twitter, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to make your thoughts known if you have few followers. Overall, most of Twitter is about celebriWLHV DQG IDNH DFFRXQWV RI ÂżFWLRQDO characters, which are super fun, but if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a way to connect to people, Twitter is not the site for you.

limited and not very welcoming. Also, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a way to become famous on the site, you should be very picky about what you put on your blog: stick to a set theme. So, you might not get to share everything you like.

Synopsis: Bernard Pomerance’s The Elephant Man poses many questions that remain relevant today. The most obvious revolve around the eponymous Joseph Merrick. We are asked to consider the true measure of a man. Merrick’s condition sets him apart from the rest of the world but the pursuit of normalcy is a capricious quest when no one can really decide what normalcy is. He was put up in comfortable lodgings and supposedly made friends with a great many important people. He became something of a celebrity in his own right. Yet were these people really his friends or had they simply come to gawk as others had done during the sideshow? The intrinsic brutality of society is a recurring image in the piece. The character of Frederick Treves presents other questions. The play begins and ends with Treves and it is his crisis of conscience that the audience must experience. Are the rules set out “for our own good” really so good after all? As Merrick’s condition deteriorates, we see Treves’s certainties about goodness, faith, and propriety do the same. The audience must feel the same heartache as Treves as he comes to realize that all he has held to be true and righteous is in reality false and hollow. The Elephant Man is a play about questions and questioning and it leaves it up to the audience to seek the answers for themselves.

Some “Bunny“ will be arriving soon March 28 through April 19th Families can take home a memory by purchasing a special photo of their child with the Easter Bunny. While supplies last, children also will receive a complimentary activity book when they visit.

Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom ROFL! My Life as an Acronym


y life is slowly becoming an acronym. Not in a hip, cutting edge way, where I’m two steps ahead of the texting lingo of today’s youth (“ILYSM!!” “No, you’re MY WCW!!” Emoji, emoji, emoji), but mostly from a condition a friend’s husband coined—and very accurately, I might add— OCI, or “Over-Commit-Itis”… where the most-used acronyms are not full of love and fun, but instead reek of responsibility and commitment and sometimes even a little resentment. OCI is actually quite prevalent in our community and appears to be self-diagnosed at a rapid rate once moms reach the breaking point of keeping up with the demands of said short-hand: GS (Girl Scouts), HW (homework), BC (book club), AL (Art Lit), DI (Destination Imagination), OBOB (Battle of the Books), any sport (bb, lax, vb—except “dance,” of course, since it’s only one syllable, and it would be SILLY to lengthen it to any sort of abbreviation…but yes, I have tried)-- and my husband reminds me that we can’t forget The BRG:-) I’ve written loads on the busy schedules of this generation and continue to personally support a theme of self-deprecating humor when it comes to my own family. But the other day, I think my husband had ¿QDOO\ KDG HQRXJK when he was trying WR ¿JXUH RXW ZKR was supposed to

be where, and my texted shorthand was getting more and more GLI¿FXOW WR GLVFHUQ +H EHJDQ WR respond a bit sarcastically with his own acronyms, but in some freakish, verbal-board-game-app way, I actually understood what he was saying: H: Where is DI? What time do I PU? (pick up) Me: 6 at Sam’s. You PU and TH (take home) everybody ! H: SG. SYL. (Sounds good. See you later.) Me: Ok. DOTS. (Dinner on the stove). DFFL. (Don’t forget to fold laundry.) H: TIR. (This is ridiculous.) Um, okay, it actually is a little ridiculous. I’m pretty sure we never took a vow that said, “To text and to hold, until death does the carpool part.” This, combined with a conversation I had with my 9 yr-old at breakfast the other day, made me wonder if it was time to take some things off my plate. We were heading out to eat on a Sunday morning, and I applied some rarely worn eyeliner and mascara just for the heck of it, then promptly forgot 30 minutes later and started rubbing my weary eyes. “Woops!” I said. “Totally forgot I had make-up on! Are my eyes black?” I asked Aurelia. “Ummm, noooo,” she hesitated. “I mean, they aren’t any more black than usual? Like, there isn’t make-up on them? Just those black circles under them. But don’t worry—they’re always there!!” she said cheerfully. That same evening, my 5 yr-old was

engaging in another imaginary soap opera with her 174 dollies lying around the house, when she randomly turned to me and said, “Do you think you’ll ever get married again?? I mean, besides daddy??” I was wrapped up in a lesson plan and trying to decide LI , DFWXDOO\ QHHGHG WR ¿OO RXW kindergarten paperwork the night before the deadline, or if I could push it off until the morning, when I absent-mindedly replied, “Uh, no, probably not. I don’t really have time for that.” She gave me a funny look, and I quickly tried to recover. “I mean, of course I’m not planning on marrying again!! One, I don’t think daddy would like that, and two, I kind of like daddy-WKDW¶VZK\,PDUULHGKLPLQWKH¿UVW place!” I then gave a loving smile to my husband, who was sprawled out on the couch nursing a massive toothache—and he managed to raise his eyebrows back in return and shake his head in disbelief. So as the school year begins to wind down and the schedule EHJLQVWRDPSXSZLWK¿QDOHVDQG festivals, I’m going to take a little hiatus from this column and plan on making an appearance again in the slower days of summer. (And if you see and my black-circle eyes in Safeway, just know that I’m working on making my life whole and not abbreviated--and that the whole “one husband” bit is still working out pretty well. :-) By Maureen Wilson

With Horse's Help, 4-YearOld Girl With Cerebral Palsy Learns To Walk


our-year-old Abigail Fantz giggles and her curls bounce as she stands straight up on a moving horse. She's held in place by a team of adults, but she's not practicing a circus trick. She is in a unique therapy called hippotherapy. Hippo is Greek for horse. Abigail has cerebral palsy and can't walk without a walker, but standing, kneeling and sitting on a pony named Pippin is strengthening her trunk and her left side. Eventually, she'll be able to sit up and stand up straight. Eventually, experts believe, she will walk all on her own. For the last two years, Abigail has attended Forward Stride once a week in Beaverton, where physical therapist Laurie Schick, a team of helpers and Pippin the pony help her work toward those goals. Schick says a horse's gait is similar to that of a human's, in that it is variable, rhythmic and repetitive. "So instead of teaching riding

we are using the movement of the horse to work on things like trunk control, strengthening balance." Schick said. Hippotherapists say patients get sensory stimulation from the horse's movements. Abigail's mom Michelle Thompson said hippotherapy is helping her daughter do amazing things already. Abigail recently took 20 steps under her own power. "I think, most important for us, VKH V JDLQHG VR PXFK FRQ¿GHQFH by being up on a horse and I love seeing how proud she is of herself," Thompson said. Abigail shares a special bond with her pony. After her weekly lesson she grooms Pippin and feeds her, too. It started as therapy for a crippling disease, but one day it could become a lifelong passion. By FOX 12 Staff
