ne thing that continues to inspire me is the passion our community has to make Beaverton better. Every day I see those WKDW VHOņHVVO\ GHGLFDWH WKHLU WLPH and resources to ensure our vulnerable residents receive basic human services. Recently, a group of local health representatives formed the Beaverton Community Health Partnership (BCHP) with a vision of delivering health services to those who have little or no access to care. Spearheaded by the city, the BCHP addresses areas of downtown Beaverton designated as “medically underserved.â€? To assist in that effort, the project was awarded a $1.6 million Community Transformation Grant from the Centers for Disease Control. Using these funds, the city and its partners will plan a community health care system that will provide comprehensive care in one location, establishing a new delivery system to dramatically lower costs of service. Another issue that we continue to work on is homelessness. According to the Beaverton School District, we have the largest homeless student population in Oregon, at 1,840 students. With $493,000 in Community Block Grant funds, the city has

SDUWQHUHG ZLWK D ORFDO QRQSURŅW Boys & Girls Aid, to transform a neglected apartment building into a safe and stable home for homeless or at-risk youth. Several community organizations have donated time, money and materials to make this renovation possible. As the holidays approach, I encourage you to join me in helping those less fortunate. From now through Dec. 14, we will collect new, unwrapped toys and gift cards for low-income youth and foster children. Drop locations can be found at City Hall and our two city libraries. Of course, our Tree Lighting tradition continues at the Beaverton City Park and Library on Dec. 7 from 5-7 p.m. We’ll have a full lineup of music and choir performances, children’s craft workshops, a visit by Santa and more! Don’t forget to bring a toy for our toy drive! What I love most about being your Mayor is seeing or learning about your acts of kindness. :KHWKHU LWģV ŅQGLQJ VROXWLRQV WR homelessness or providing health care to our most vulnerable or delivering a gift to a small child, our citizens are so compassionate. It’s you, it’s all of us together, who truly represent The Best of Oregon.

Santa and Holiday Cheer Return to Washington Square Here Comes Santa Claus! ontinuing an annual tradition, Washington Square, the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier shopping center, welcomes Santa Claus and his merry band of elves for another year of holiday enjoyment at his magical lodge. Children, young and old, can stop by for a photo with Santa and make sure he knows exactly what they want this year through December 24.


NEW! Washington Square has introduced a time-saving twist with our Santa Fly By program. Families may enter Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s virtual line via web (, text, phone or by visiting Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lodge. Guests will receive an approximate wait time and are free to shop, dine or relax while awaiting their turn to tell Santa whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the top of their list. The Sharing Tree A Washington Square holiday

tradition is back for another year of giving. Organized by Clipped Wings, a charitable organization RIFXUUHQWIRUPHUDQGUHWLUHGĹ&#x2020;LJKW attendants, the Sharing Tree annually provides more than 4,500 gifts WRORFDOQRQSURĹ&#x2026;WVVHUYLQJFKLOGUHQ and families in need. Thanks to the generosity of Washington Square shoppers, kids and young adults who may have gone with very little this holiday season will receive a gift from their own personal angel. Ornaments on the Sharing Tree describe what a particular individual needs and are available in Nordstrom Court from November 16 through December 19. Sounds of the Season It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be Christmas without carolers. Coming from miles away, school choirs will deck the halls of Searsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Court with the sounds of the holidays between November 26-30 and December 3-7. Â&#x201E;

November 30 through December 15


he Beaverton Civic Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holiday comedy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!)â&#x20AC;? by Michael Carleton, James FitzGerald and John K. Alvarez, opens Friday Nov. 30. Rather than redo the classic Dickens tale yet again, six actors take a humorous romp through the

holiday season when they decide to perform every Christmas story ever told â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hitting on carols, icons and traditions from around the world. Presented by the Beaverton Arts Commission, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!)â&#x20AC;? will run weekends begin-

ning Nov. 30 through Dec. 15 in the Beaverton City Library Auditorium (12375 SW 5th Street). Performances are scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. A question and answer session with the cast will follow the Sunday, Dec. 9 performance.Â&#x201E;

Dec 2012 Schedule

Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Washington County is home to some of the best festivals and events the state has to offer. Just minutes from downtown Portland and set in the heart of the agricultural area of northwestern Oregon, summer ushers in agricultural events, farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets and myriad family festivals.

The Forum meets from 11:45 am to 1 pm at the Old Spaghetti Factory (18925 NW Tanasbourne Drive, across from the Evergreen movie theaters in Hillsboro). Founded in 1956, the Public Affairs Forum provides a common meeting place for the interchange of ideas and to stimulate thinking on civic matters. Each week the Forum brings together community leaders, members and guests who care about what happens in Washington County, the metro region and the state of Oregon. Speakers from government, business, science, the arts and education address the Forum. Members have the opportunity to question speakers - sometimes the most interesting part of the program. The Forum is a neutral arena for the education of members and the public. It endorses no particular point of view and takes no responsibility for the opinions expressed by speakers, which are not necessarily the opinions of the Forum, its members or its Board of Directors.

Cover Story: Now & Then at the Beaverton History Center


he holidays are the perfect time to drop into the Beaverton History Center where now meets then throughout the year. This oil painting which can be seen hanging in the center is titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now and Then - Beaverton History Centerâ&#x20AC;? and combines scenes of an old fashioned Christmas with the cheer of holiday street lights, dancers and musicians of today.

There is a story here. I have been a volunteer with the History Center since its opening in the summer of 2010. I was asked to volunteer when dropping in on LWVĹ&#x2026;UVWGD\RIRSHUDWLRQ0\FXULosity about Beavertonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history was stoked while I was working on a job integrating signage and art for the MAX lines here in town. Every step of light rail station

development involved considering and respecting the history of the land and area surrounding each station while making decisions about station naming and art to be placed in each station. Now, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at the time very familiar with the history of Beaverton even having been a resident for 40 years. But being retired I was happy to help out logging and indexing all of the titles in the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing library of reference materials. There are now over 450 titles all about early pioneers who settled WKH DUHD IDFWV DQG Ĺ&#x2026;JXUHV ORUH and legends, education, religion, politics, society, arts and crafts and real life heroes.

Holiday Cooking Last year approximately oneWKLUG   RI WKH UHVLGHQWLDO Ĺ&#x2026;UHV that Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue responded to began in the kitchen. Minimize your risk by keeping an eye on all holiday cooking, especially when heating oil! Clean your cooking area to avoid grease buildup and keep potholders and towels away from the stovetop.

Candles When decorating with candles, keep them away from stockings, decorations, presents and

other items that burn. Use sturdy, non-combustible candle holders and trim candle wicks to approximately Âź inch before burning. Always extinguish your candles before going to bed or leaving your home. Holiday Trees A dry tree can be like storing gasoline in your home. Keep your tree as fresh as possible by following the safety tips below: ÄŞ Make a fresh cut at the base of the tree before putting it up. ÄŞ Check the water level in your tree stand EVERY day (the average tree can consume a gallon of water each day) and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the water level drop below the base of the tree. ÄŞ Keep your tree away from KHDWHUVRUĹ&#x2026;UHSODFHV ÄŞ Turn-off the tree lights when leaving the house or going to bed. ÄŞ Remove the tree as soon at it gets dry. When the needles begin to fall, the tree should be removed.

Holiday Lighting Use only UL-approved lights when decorating your home. Prior to using a light set, place it on a QRQĹ&#x2020;DPPDEOHVXUIDFHDQGSOXJLW in for 10-15 minutes and inspect for smoking or melting. Never use light sets with broken sockets, frayed and/or cracked wires, or missing sockets. ALSOâ&#x20AC;Ś Help a less fortunate child this holiday season!

#VTJOFTT4QPUMJHIU Abbey Creek Vineyard


bbey Creek Vineyard & Winery is a family owned and operated business that began in the mid 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by Dr. Robert Simmons who purchased the 50 acre property in the west hills off of Germantown rd. While most of our neighbors planted Christmas trees, he decided to plant grapes as a hobby as well as part of his â&#x20AC;&#x153;farm deferral cropâ&#x20AC;?. That hobby soon grew into a business, selling grapes to local wineries. In 2008, his son-in-law Bertony Faustin decided that they could make a â&#x20AC;&#x153;small fortuneâ&#x20AC;? starting a wine label and making their own wine (industry joke is to make a small fortune you start with a big one!).â&#x20AC;? Never the less, Abbey

Creek is going strong with the opening of its new winery and tasting room in North Plains. Its close proximity to Beaverton makes for a short drive to a great wine escape! Â

Power Brain Training Center

Since joining Power Brain (just 2 short months ago), as parents we have learned how to change our reactions to negative behaviors, which teaches our son what will and will not get the attention he desires. Our son has learned how to manage his own feelings and make better choices. I have seen his conďŹ dence and maturity grow as he makes healthier choices and accepts things that are out of â&#x20AC;&#x153;his controlâ&#x20AC;?. His teacher reports that he has improved 100% in staying on task, managing his time and staying engaged in the learning environment. Yippee!!!

3 1


Truly I cannot emphasize enough how the staff at Power Brain has changed our lives for the better through observing our sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviors and working with us on a plan for success.

y wife loves green bean casserole during the holiday season. We would make it the traditional way with the can of mushroom soup, Frenchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s onions, etc., but I was never a big fan. A couple of years ago, I decided I could do better than this. I replaced the can version with my own â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;re-creationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Fresh green beans, crimini mushrooms and shallots to compliment my gravy from scratch; my own variation of fried onions to top this delectable dish. 7KHĹ&#x2026;QDOSURGXFWLVPRUHĹ&#x2020;DYRUIXO colorful and I know you will enjoy this reinvented classic.

Successful Medicare Forum hosted by the Beaverton Senior Citizens Advisory Committee. ecause of the ever-changing rules, options, and rising cost of medical insurance, it is more important than ever to be informed and proactive regarding your health insurance needs. To help seniors and others in Beaverton become better informed, the Beaverton Senior Citizens Advisory Committee hosted a Forum October 13 on Medicare updates for 2013. Donna Delikat, Field 2IĹ&#x2026;FHUDQG7UDLQHUZLWKWKH6WDWH of Oregon Senior Health Insurance %HQHĹ&#x2026;WV$VVLVWDQFH 6+,%$ 3URgram, a federal and state funded program that assists Medicare beQHĹ&#x2026;FLDULHV ZLWK LQVXUDQFH FKRLFH counseling, community outreach DQGEHQHĹ&#x2026;FLDU\DGYRFDF\ Donna expertly explained some of the basics of the Medicare program, and then shared updates to the program for 2013.

ast month's Hurricane Sandy was a jolt. Did you know anyone affected by the storm? If you did, hopefully it has prompted reĹ&#x2020;HFWLRQ XSRQ \RXU RZQ SUHSDUHGness for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;unprecedented.â&#x20AC;? Consider the following suggestions for yourself or, for your favorite 6SHHGHUTXDOLĹ&#x2026;HGSHUVRQFRQVLGHU offering to be part of a team!

The American Red Cross recommends that Speeders (senior citizens) create a personal support network made up of several individuals who can be trusted, and who will check in on you in an emergency, to ensure your wellness and to give assistance if needed. Consider friends, family

members, relatives, personal attendants, co-workers and neighbors to include in your network. Make arrangements, prior to an emergency, for your support network to immediately check on you after a disaster and, if needed, offer assistance. Exchange important keys. Show them where you keep emergency supplies. Share copies of your relevant emergency documents, evacuation plans and emergency health information card. Agree on and practice methods for contacting each other in an emergency. Do not count on your telephones working. You and your personal support network should always notify each other when you are going out of town and when you expect to return. The relationship should be mutual. You have a lot to contribute! Learn about each other's needs and how to help each other in an emergency. Sounds like a good excuse for a lunch date to me. . . now, where to go? Remember to check your speed and enjoy the ride! Â

The event was a success, with over 70 attendees. The Beaverton Senior Citizens Advisory Committee plans to host another Medicare Update Forum next October with Donna Delikat.

Safety belts: ÄŞ A child taller than 4â&#x20AC;&#x2122;9â&#x20AC;? OR age 8 or older must be properly secured with the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety belt. ÄŞ The child is properly secured if the lap belt is positioned low across the thighs and the shoulder belt is positioned over the collarbone and away from the neck. The transition from booster seat to seat belt confuses some SHRSOH WU\LQJ WR Ĺ&#x2026;JXUH RXW WKH safety requirements. The following may help: 1. Is the child tall enough to sit with their back against the vehicle seat back? 2. Do the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knees bend comfortably at the edge of the vehicle seat? 3. Does the belt cross the shoulder over the collarbone? 4. Is the lap belt low, touching the thighs? 5. Can the child stay seated like this for the entire trip?

CHILD RESTRAINTS: Rear Facing Seats A rear-facing car seat is the best seat for your young child to use. It has a harness and in a crash, cradles and moves with your child to reduce the stress to the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fragile neck and spinal cord. Forward Facing Car Seat The forward-facing car seat has a harness and tether that limits your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forward movement during a crash. ÄŞ Child passengers must be restrained in an approved child safety seat until they weigh 40 pounds. ÄŞ Infants must ride rear facing until they reach both one year of age AND 20 lbs.

Properly used and installed, car seats reduce the risk of death to infants by 71%. For children 1-4 years of age, that percentage is still an eye opening 54%. We all know what seatbelts can do to prevent tragedy and car seats go beyond that for children.

Everything I Ever Needed to Know I Learned from My 3 Yr-Old


August 2012: Jennifer Abeyratne The former owner and teacher at Aloha Montessori Preschool whose love and teaching made a positive difference in hundreds of children's lives.

ÄŁP Ĺ&#x2026;QGLQJ WKH DJH RI wisdom, which used to be kindergarten, has been reduced down to preschool --at least in our home. Lately when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m joyless or exhausted or impatient, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my youngest who sets me straightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in a way that makes me take a breath, stop and think, and remember that yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s me who is role-modeling grown up and no, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take credit for her insight, even if I am her mother. I recently had yet another middle-aged birthday go by and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feeling totally celebratory about it. My 3 yr-old, who is always

ready to celebrate most anything, right down to remembering to spit when she brushes her teethâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was SUPER pumped about my big day. She began discussing her love of the age of â&#x20AC;&#x153;fwee,â&#x20AC;? followed with some pining for 8, then suddenly wanted to know how old I would be when SHE turned 14, the random, magical age she believes all wishes and privileges come true (like every AG doll becomes yours, popsicles are served for breakfast, and naps are forbidden). I told her 52, which must have sounded something like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to DISNEYLAND!!â&#x20AC;? for the enthusiasm that spewed forward caught me off guard. She practically jumped out of her seat,

hollering, â&#x20AC;&#x153;FIFTY-TWO???? THAT IS AWE-THOM!! Do you KNOW how much FUN 52 ith gonna BE???â&#x20AC;? (Uh, no.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 52, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna feel like LOVING EVERYTHING!! And EVERYBODY!! The THUN ith gonna SHINE on that OCEAN!!â&#x20AC;? Okay, well, wow. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to break out the gospel. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually starting to get kind of excited. Fast forward to another day of buckling and unbuckling car seats while being eternally late for something that "matters", all the while running a continuous mom monologue of how we HAVE to get going or elseâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x153;Or elth what?â&#x20AC;? she asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, or else weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be late and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disrespectful if someone is waiting.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mama,â&#x20AC;? she says with only a slightly exasperated sigh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mama, it-th jutht gonna have to be a late day. And thath jutht gonna have to be okay. Okay?â&#x20AC;? she says, patting my hand sympathetically. Well, when you put it like that, then yeah. I actually feel like it is okay. But one morning while I was simultaneously cleaning the kitchen, signing school forms, and putting out lunches, I told her how we were heading to a party of a 5 yr-old that afternoonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that is, after school and the babysitter and carpool to her sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; activities. Her enthusiasm for older age and busy schedules suddenly waned. She

got teary-eyed and choked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I GRQÄŁWZDQWWRJURZXSDQGEHĹ&#x2026;YH I WIKE being fwee and a half!â&#x20AC;? I tried to console her with all the fun privileges she would have with every passing year (while silently commiserating that I would love for her to remain at this fabulous stage), when she mournfully wailed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mama, thith life ith going too FATHT for me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;th going too FATHT for my little heart.â&#x20AC;? Good Lord. Let me pour a bowl of Cheerios and sit down next to you, my love, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going too fatht for me, too, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to miss one more moment. Â
