’m not sure about you, but February is a bit of a weird month for me. Here we are. We have now started the new year, but things don’t quite feel all that different. Yes, the days are growing longer, but it still feels like more darkness than light dominates the day. On February 2nd, Groundhog Day, Punxsutawney Phil may or may not see his shadow‌ are we really placing our hope for an end to the winter season on a groundhog?! As a Christian, I put my faith in God and not a groundhog. But I’ll tell you the real reason I don’t get too excited one way or another for the results of Groundhog Day. By this point in the winter, we have been battle-hardened; we are ready for anything. And by this point after a year like we have lived through, I feel like we can handle just about anything. Bring it on Punxsutawney Phil! Yes, we have come to embrace the reality of winter, but oh, how we long for brighter, warmer days! Add the yearning for vaccines during this time of pandemic and the anticipation is palpable! Yes, there may be light at

the end of the metaphorical tunnel, but there is still quite a bit of ways to trod. Perhaps the month of February is a time to once again take a breath, take inventory of all that has gotten XVWRWKLVFXUUHQWSODFHZH¿QG ourselves, and refocus on the journey ahead. Who are your fellow travelers on this segment of this adventure called life? What have we learned from the past few months of trial and tribulation? How have we grown as a community and individuals during such times? What are you looking forward to ahead? Yes, we have been battle-hardened by this previous year, but let’s also not forget that we are more than our most recent challenges—we are a people of hope. We will once again gather as community. We will once again touch and breathe freely. We will once DJDLQ¿QGZDUPHUEULJKWHU days ahead. Thanks, Phil, for your help, but we got this! Are you ready to move forward? ~Pastor Jeff Binder

New murals coming to downtown And good news for bikers DOWNTOWN


ow far did you bike to get here?” I asked the family of four as they rolled their bicycles into the 1st Street Dining Commons. “From near Denny and Hall. About two miles.” I had noticed their two young children, one of whom still had training wheels on her bike. As a bike rider myself, I am always curious how people get into downtown on their bikes, as many people are not as comfortable as I am riding in the street. “We rode up Main Street. There is a path near some of it that is nice for riding away IURPWUDI¿F´


Hampton Rodriguez paints his mural on the side of the Nak Won building.

Did you know there was a multi-use path connecting the downtown near the THPRD Aquatic Center to the neighborhoods south of downtown? The ride into downtown is simply

stunning, and for the most part, it stays away from busy streets. The BDA is working on getting more bike racks and bike repair stations in downtown so that accessing this community

is easier if you don’t want to GULYHDQG¿QGSDUNLQJ:HZLOO reveal more information on those repair stations over the coming weeks. We’ve also had the great fortune of supporting and witnessing the creation of Hampton Rodriguez’s mural on the side of the Nak Won building, and Susan Charnquist’s on the side of Ickabod’s.

Familiarity Connects! Do your customers know you? BUSINESS BUZZ I love motor sports! love the technology, the precision, the art, the power, strategizing...you name it. For the most part, I really love NASCAR and Indy Car racing. After all, they are Americanized, more local, broadcast more often...and when it comes to NASCAR, the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s names and the car brands were more recognizable to me. Nothing against Formula 1. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awesome, high tech, global and exciting...but I just did not have a connection. Over time, as a fan of racing, I would lightly pay attention to Formula 1. Very lightly. To date, I have never watched an F1 race. Simply, it was pretty foreign to me and while I had a glimmer of interest, it



was just not enough to connect and engage. That changed over Winter Break. With more time on my hands, I watched 2 seasons of a documentary of the Formula 1 Circuit. It highlighted drivers, race teams, and their toils, tribulations, wins, losses and what it took to win and overcome adversity. Names like Lewis Hamilton, Niko Hulkenberg, Carlos Sainz, Max Verstappen and others.

4 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Beaverton Resource Guide | Volume 11 - Issue 2 (February 2021)

I got to know them. I learned about them personally. Their personalities, their families, what they were like as drivers. The more I watched, the more interested I became. I was conscious of this change. I watched it evolve. I was quite intrigued by my growing interest in F1.

Are your customers, or potential customers familiar with you? Or do they just kind of know about you? How connected are they with your brand, your product, your people, your services...and most importantly...you? Familiarity...Being Connected...Knowledge; they are critical, especially in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crowded, busy, fast paced marketplace. One can never assume customers know enough about our companies OR that enough customers know about us. It is a lifelong project, that takes constant energy, effort, adjusting and innovation. NEVER QUIT! Keep connecting, educating,

Traffic Q&A:

With the Beaverton Police Department


I’m stopped at the red-light facing North at the intersection of Murray and Farmington. I know it’s okay to turn right when traffic is clear but what if I’m the second car back and the car ahead of me is going straight. Is it legal for me to squeeze by the car ahead of me if there is space to do so and make the right-hand turn? ANSWER: The second car may make a right hand turn under those circumstances as long as he/she does not leave the paved portion of the road and they don’t drive in a designated bike lane in order to make that turn. As you can tell a great deal is dependent on exactly where the first car in line stops.


What is the actual limit in a school zone when school is not in session (e.g. summertime)? Answer: School zone speed reverts back to whatever the posted speed for the street is.



From a little to a lot. Just participating makes all the difference.

I understand that driving while texting is against the law, so why do people still get to smoke while driving (and not get cited for that)?

When you join our Green Future renewable power program, you make a great choice to reduce your carbon emissions and bring more clean energy into the mix.

Answer: The legislature has not made smoking a “driving while impaired” issue.

It’s cheaper than you think


For as little as $2.50 per month you can get started, with our Clean Wind option. Or go all-in, for around $6 a month, to get 100% of your energy from renewable sources like wind and solar. That’s why about one-fourth of our customers have joined this voluntary program.



Is it legal to turn-left into the Safeway parking lot facing west on Allen Blvd just before Murray Blvd even though there’s a double-double yellow line? ANSWER: You may make the turn as long as you are not passing cars in order to make the turn. You cannot cross over the yellow lines and pass cars that are backed up in order to make the turn.


If I’m driving down Murray Blvd and a bus going the opposite direction stops and puts out its stop sign, do I need to stop even with an island in the middle separating traffic? What about if it’s an emergency vehicle on the other side of the island?

Participation in Green Future is easy, and not only will you be reducing your carbon footprint, you’ll be helping others too. That’s because when you sign up, you’re also helping fund the development of local renewable energy projects. Like recently, when the Oregon Zoo wanted to have the first net-zero building in the state: The 760 solar panels that helped them do that were paid for in part by PGE Green Future customers. No wonder Green Future is the number one voluntary renewable energy program in the nation! portlandgeneral.com/greenfuture

ANSWER: While travelling in the opposite direction you are not required to stop as long as there is a raised barrier or island. You are required to yield to the emergency vehicle (pull to the right and stop) because the emergency vehicle may have to travel in your lane.

If you have a traffic question that you'd like us to ask the Beaverton Police Department for this column, email us at: BRG@cedarhousemedia.com. For all other police questions, call the police non-emergency number: 503-526-2260. Beaverton Family Chiropractic

There are a lot of ways to manage your energy use at home. Everything from weatherizing to installing a smart thermostat. And if you have a smartphone, you can manage your energy from just about anywhere. Simple things like tracking your energy use with our free Energy Tracker and setting up notifications. You can even monitor outages and make payments. All that power, right in the palm of your hand with the PGE mobile app.

Since 1992, Dr. Dan Miller has witnessed the transformation of 1000’s of patient lives. He has seen children overcome the damage of birth trauma, resolution of injuries from car accidents, and positive impact on families when a loved one’s health is restored. www.BeavertonFamilyChiropractic.com

Beaverton Comes Together and Thrives! BEAVERTON BUSINESS

Do you need social media? LINKEDIN:

Small Business Marketing LOCAL BUSINESS


o you need social media and if so, what platform? There are so many social media channels out there itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to get confused. A business doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need all of them so we want to break down what each one specializes in and what type of business it might be useful for.

FACEBOOK: The original in social media. A way to connect with friends, family, co-workers, and share your latest updates and milestones. A great way to reconnect with childhood friends, classmates, long lost relatives too. It has become a VLJQLÂżFDQWSODWIRUPIRUEXVLQHVV representation if your business services one of these types of people. ,I\RXDUHDQRIÂżFHVXSSO\FRPSDQ\DQG\RXWDUJHWODUJHRIÂżFHVWKLV wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the top space for you. If you have a store, a restaurant, a service, or perhaps a consumer good you will want to have a presence here. This is a great place to post your latest updates, events, pictures of products, and even sell products if your eCommerce business is on Shopify (a whole different article but an eCommerce website hosting platform). As of August 2020, according to a study conducted by Sprout Social, 79% of adults between 30-49 and 68% between 50-64 not only use Facebook, but visit at least once a day.

INSTAGRAM: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the images. Build your brand here through pictures.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect way to sell your product and engage your customers. If you love to take pictures, and can quickly upload them, this is the place for you. In addition to posting on your homepage, you can easily create â&#x20AC;&#x153;storiesâ&#x20AC;? throughout the day (quick snippets of imaging usually with text on it). These are for spontaneous posts rather than planned and scheduled. This platform is owned by Facebook which makes for easy cross-posting. This too is a great space to reach a customer like the one on Facebook however here the customer tends to be more media savvy, often younger, and trendier. As of November 2020, according to Statista, 33.1 percent of U.S. Instagram users were between 25 and 34 years old. The second-largest user group was 18- to 24-yearolds with a 22.8 percent share. Overall, more than 56 percent of Instagram audiences in the United States were female.

taken, sent, and disappears. This is mainly for a young, urban demographic and a product that appeals to them. Think music, clothing, HGJ\LWHPVRUVSHFLÂżFIDQEDVHG stuff (Subaru hot rods anyone?).

TWITTER: The intellectual. If your company is newsy, tech-y, innovative, or with cutting edge information it can get engagement on Twitter. Twitter does have its niches such as WineTwitter, BeerTwitter, FashionTwitter, MarketingTwitter, and so on...The average user is educated and urban. Age Group Demographic: 18+, sweet spot 25-30

This platform is all about an LQGLYLGXDOÂśVSURIHVVLRQDOSURÂżOH Businesses stake a claim here too and then try to reach that professional through information and news articles they publish. This is DJRRGSODFHWRFUHDWHDSURÂżOHIRU your business and publish information if you have regular updates about your business or your product. If you want to reach other SURIHVVLRQDOVLQ\RXUÂżHOGVD\ DYLDWLRQRUÂżQDQFHRUUHDOHVWDWH this is a great place. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a place you want to really spend advertising dollars but instead talks about your specialty and its place in business. Users tend to be urban, educated, and the percentage of men and women using LinkedIn is relatively similar; 29% men 24% women. Age Group Demographic: 25+, sweet spot 25-40

PINTEREST: All about human interest. Pinterest is where users collect information for future projects, ÂżQGUHFLSHVIRUWKHLUGLQQHU parties, get ideas on what to wear for a wedding rehearsal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very design-oriented and the perfect place for a business known to

be creative, editorial, DIY, or transformational. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aspirational and beautiful. More women use Pinterest, and they are educated and in a higher economic bracket. A great place to advertise anything related to home, beauty, fashion, design, cooking, etc. Age Group Demographic: 18+, sweet spot up to age 50 There is so much detail we can go into, but we run the risk of being boring. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end with this: choose one or two platforms that ÂżW\RXUEXVLQHVVGHPRJUDSKLF and do them well. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to be everywhere just for the sake of it. Remember, if your customer sees you on Pinterest because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where they are, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re everywhere! Next month we will talk about Newsletters and how they can help grow your business. If you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure what platform is for you, send us an email and we will give you free advice!

s economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to rack the region, the Oregon Zoo has launched a new half-price admission discount for qualifying individuals and families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The effects of this pandemic have reached much farther and lasted much longer than any of us anticipated,â&#x20AC;? said Scott Cruickshank, interim zoo director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though WKH]RRÂśVÂżQDQFLDOSLFWXUHUHmains far from rosy, we know this discount is something our community needs more than ever right now.â&#x20AC;?

he Malheur wire-lettuce is the loneliest plant in Oregon. It looks like a low shrub with thin, wire-like stems that support tiny six-petaled pink, UHGRUZKLWHĂ&#x20AC;RZHUV2QHRI the 17 currently endangered plants in our state, this small Ă&#x20AC;RZHULQJSODQWKDVRQO\HYHU been found in a single location on the hills surrounding Harney Lake in southeastern Oregon. Interestingly, while the Malheur Wire-lettuce is an annual plant, its parent species â&#x20AC;&#x153;wire-lettuceâ&#x20AC;? is a perennial. Despite its isolation, it has evolved to be distinct from its parent plant. The species has been monitored since 1974, but the initial population of 228 plants had mysteriously dwindled to almost zero in 1999. During this dark age, Malheur wire-lettuce faced a new threat: the aggressive non-native â&#x20AC;&#x153;cheatgrass.â&#x20AC;? This fast-spreading grass is speculated to have played a role in threatening the species. While the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) directed an initiative to restore the species between 2007 and 2011, sowing about 46,000 seeds in the area, annual surveys in 2016 found only three individual plants in poor condition. Currently, the Malheur wire-lettuce is designated endangered, and while thousands of seeds are stored in

seed banks, it is suspected to be naturally extinct. While just one footnote of a species in decline, the entire story is alarming. The extinction rate of plants and animals is thousands of times higher than the background extinction rate. It is more important than ever to learn about locally threatened VSHFLHVDQGÂżQGZD\VWRHUDGLcate or prevent invasive species. Please help me in bringing awareness of the plight of the Malheur Wire-lettuce.

Three ways to beat the winter blahs HEALTH


he rainy season has set in hard in Oregon. This dreary time, combined with no immediate prospects of vacationing, is causing everyone to feel the effects of seasonal affective disorder â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or SAD. SAD is the clinical term for the depressing jag you can fall into when you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough sunshine, exercise, and positive social interaction. Working on your mental health during the long, blah, winter months takes everyday effort. Try these three ways to feel better today.

Get cozy The winter is an excellent time to embrace slowness and nurture your spirit. In Denmark, where they experience one of the longest winters around, they call this hygge.

Post Viral Syndrome Support HEALTH


OVID-19 has impacted us all for the past year. But, for some who have contracted the virus, there are ongoing long-term effects. Up to 10% of COVID survivors suffer from Post Viral Syndrome. It is more common in people with underlying health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. :KHQLQĂ&#x20AC;DPPDWLRQLQ the body is high, chemicals induced by COVID can overwhelm the immune system and damage organs such as the lungs, heart, and kidneys.

Whether we have been sick or not, it has changed our lives dramatically. If you know someone who is sick, bring them a pot of homemade soup or some healing teas. Giving is a great way to overcome some of the isolation of these times, another impact of this pandemic.

How the COVID-19 vaccine will impact IBD patients and caregivers IBD and COVID-19 Vaccination HEALTH

QĂ&#x20AC;DPPDWRU\ERZHOGLVease (IBD) is an umbrella term that refers to both ulcerative colitis and Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. Many patients with IBD may have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine and concerns about immunosuppression. The Oregon Clinic Gastroenterology providers would like to share the following information about how the vaccine will impact IBD patients and caregivers. First, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember you cannot contract COVID-19 from the vaccine because there is no virus in the actual vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccines currently available, from Moderna DQG3Âż]HUDUHQRWOLYHYDFcines. Therefore, they cannot


cause a COVID-19 infection in the recipient. Both of these vaccines are safe for people on immunosuppressants to receive. We know being on immunosuppressants might affect some of the vaccineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effectiveness. However, since the vaccine is so safe, the

recipient will still get many EHQHÂżWV None of the vaccines have been shown to cause or worsen IBD in recipients. IBD patients on biologic medications do not appear to be at an increased risk for a severe case of COVID-19 if they do happen to get it.

Until we have widespread immunity through vaccination, the only way to slow the spread of COVID-19 is through behavior: wear a mask when around others; avoid indoor crowded spaces with limited ventilation; and be very careful about hand hygiene, using alcohol-based gels or soap and water. Patients with IBD and their caregivers can get more information from the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s & Colitis Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control, Food & Drug Administration, and National Institutes of Health. Continue to talk with your primary care physician about when and how your COVID-19 vaccine may become available.

More than 270 providers provide respectful, compassionate care in more than 30 specialty areas, resulting in more than 500,000 patient visits each year. Founded in Portland in 1994, The Oregon Clinic is committed to delivering the highest quality patient care, practicing evidence-based medicine, and providing leadership for the healthcare community. We collaborate with primary care physicians and use a team approach to address health conditions at more than 60 specialty clinic locations across northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.

Leave behind whatever circumstances feed your anxiety moments like the one I just From Anxiety described, He is quick to speak Replace Worry deeply into our hearts. The to Joy with Joy Bible says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;God is our refuge SPIRITUAL ESSAY


ven as a pastor, I sometimes forget how faithful God is. Even in the midst of our pain, suffering, doubt and fear, God is right there, speaking with clarity and telling us just what we need to hear. When I hear His voice so clearly, I am often caught off guard and become overwhelmed by His goodness and faithfulness. During the chaos and uncertainty of the last year, and especially the last month, I have felt as though I cannot stop thinking, planning and worrying. I have formulated a lie in my head that if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not worrying or trying to plan for whatever is to come then I will lose control of my life and risk becoming paralyzed by

my circumstances. This emotional downward spiral usually looks something like this: I become overwhelmed, as if a ton of bricks has been laid on my shoulders. Then fear




begins to control my thoughts. Next, my heart and mind slip into a state of anxiousness. From there, it is just a short trip to an ugly place called anxiety. But God is good and in

and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So, we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea.â&#x20AC;? God loves us and wants to move us away from a life of DQ[LHW\WRDOLIHÂżOOHGZLWKSHDFH and joy. When fears, doubts and struggles enter our minds, God reminds us that true peace and joy can only come from being in a relationship with Him. God does not want us to carry the burdens of life on our own. He invites us to cast our fear, our worries, our doubts and our moments of anxiety on his shoulders; take a deep breath and watch as he slowly replaces these things with joy. Make a commitment this

year to leave behind whatever circumstances feed your anxiety. Instead, pursue God and experience the peace and joy that comes from knowing and trusting Him.

When my car needs maintenance, is the dealership the best place to go? resources and facilities are far above smaller shops. Dealerships have the latest and greatest tools, the most service bays and the cleanest facilities that are more inviting for customers.

The beneďŹ ts of taking your car to a dealership AUTOMOTIVE Q&A Hello Loyal Beaverton Readers,


hank You all for your input as well as questions. his monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s question is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Should I continue taking my car to the dealership for servicing needs, or is an independent a better choice? Why choose a dealerhip? For many dealerships, getting customers to return to your service lanes is easier said than done. Those independent repair facilities have a tendency to steal customers, who often cite convenience and price as major selling points. For the record, dealerships are not more expensive in the long run. Fortunately for dealerships, there are ways to better ensure customers will choose your service lane for upcoming maintenance or future repairs. When customers drive off the lot in their new vehicle, dealerships often do a lot of work to prevent defection and

ensure people will return for vehicle servicing. The service department is a major dealerVKLSSURÂżWFHQWHU Often, the service relationship starts off strong, but as time goes on and warranties expire, customer loyalty dwindles. :LWKLQWKHÂżUVWWZR\HDUV of vehicle ownership, 45% of customers remain loyal to their dealershipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service department, according to an Automotive study. After three to six years of ownership, only 31% return to the dealership for core services and after seven or more years, only 13% of customers return. So, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dealership to do? Can your service department really compete with independently owned service centers?

20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Beaverton Resource Guide | Volume 11 - Issue 2 (February 2021)

Of course. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about demonstrating to customers what advantages there are to using your dealership service lane. Your service department has a lot going for it. Car dealers should demonstrate to customers they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the same quality of service anywhere else. That includes: â&#x20AC;˘ High-quality OEM parts. Customers can be sure that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting parts that DUHPDGHIRUWKHLUVSHFLÂżF vehicle. â&#x20AC;˘ Factory-certiďŹ ed technicians. Dealership mechanics have strong H[SHUWLVHLQVHUYLFLQJVSHFLÂżF vehicle makes and models. Customers canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get this caliber of specialized talent at a local service facility.

â&#x20AC;˘ Unbeatable customer service. Your dealership represents a vehicle manufacturer, so you have to meet its high customerservice standards. Most independent shops arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t held to this high standard. â&#x20AC;˘ Top-notch facilities. Similarly, because dealerships are part of a larger network, the

ConnectingCommunity Learning Corner: Beaverton School District

Beaverton Bulletin Board

Update on hybrid learning From the Beaverton School District SCHOOL DISTRICT


he Oregon Department of Education (ODE) announced some changes that impact our ability to bring back students for in-person instruction. What did ODE change? The State has changed the advisory health metrics. Under the previous health metrics, positive COVID-19 cases in Washington and Multnomah Counties had to drop below 100 per 100,000 residents (during the previous twoweek period) to begin in-person instruction. Now, ODE will use new advisory metrics, based on Harvard Global Health Institute guidelines: â&#x20AC;˘ If over 350 cases per 100,000 (during the previous twoweek period): No in-person instruction â&#x20AC;˘ If 200 - 350 cases per 100,000 (during the previous two-week period): Focus on elementary in-person instruction â&#x20AC;˘ If 50 - 199 cases per 100,000 (during the previous two-week period): Expand in-person instruction beyond elementary â&#x20AC;˘ If under 50 cases per 100,000 (during the previous twoweek period): All in-person instruction As of this writing, the current case count in Washington and Multnomah Counties is 340 and 311, respectively.

What did ODE not change? â&#x20AC;˘ ODE did NOT change the mandatory social distancing requirement as described in the Ready School Safe Learners guidance. That means that each student still must have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;space bubbleâ&#x20AC;? of 35 square feet. â&#x20AC;˘ ODE did NOT change the mandatory cohort requirement. That means that a student may not have contact with more than 100 people per week. This requirement is one of our biggest barriers to resuming in-person instruction for our middle and high school students. What else do we know? â&#x20AC;˘ The Governor has announced that educators will begin to receive the vaccine, starting on January 25. The District hopes to roll out those vaccines to our 6,000 employees as quickO\DQGHIÂżFLHQWO\DVSRVVLEOH Addressing some misconceptions â&#x20AC;˘ Understandably, some parents are frustrated when they see other school districts around the country open to full in-person instruction when BSD is

not. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to recognize that Oregon has more stringent mandatory safety protocols in place than do other states. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an apples-to-apples comparison. â&#x20AC;˘ Some parents also are frustrated to see other school districts in Oregon announcing their intentions to reopen in some form. Please realize that smaller districts with smaller student populations donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the same challenges as districts as large as BSD. Again, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an apples-to-apples comparison. â&#x20AC;˘ One issue that has been underreported centers on liability. If a school district elects to begin in-person instruction without meeting the advisory health metrics, the district will no longer have the liability protection that was recently extended by the Oregon Legislature. If and when anyone were to become sick (or worse) from COVID-19, a district could face expensive lawsuits. Most districts, including ours, cannot afford to take on that level of risk. Any legal settlements would directly impact future funding for students. We hope to have more information and timelines for you in the coming days.

Under new ownership



hile Blazer basketball is back, Portland Winterhawks junior hockey remains waiting to return to the ice. Still, when they do, the Western Hockey League franchise will have new owners eight months after the former ownHUVÂżOHGIRUEDQNUXSWF\ While ice hockey rinks and DUHQDVLQWKH3DFLÂżF1RUWKZHVW remain dormant during the COVID pandemic, the Portland Winterhawks have a new lease on life and a long-term solution to keep junior hockey thriving in the Rose City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look at this as, how can we really super-charge hockey in Portland?â&#x20AC;? Michael Kramer said. Kramer is the majority shareholder in the new Winterhawks Sports Group, a collection of seven people buying to lead Winterhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hockey in Portland and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than just hockey, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the development of these players, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the community ties,â&#x20AC;? Kramer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition to acquiring the Winterhawks, being able to operate the Winterhawks Skate Center (in Beaverton), the youth programs, and the adult hockey leagues and all of that is something that is really important to us.â&#x20AC;?

While Kramer isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t local, he owns a stake in a Willamette Valley winery and a Eugene electric car company as the CEO of a New <RUNEDVHGLQYHVWPHQWÂżUP â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to some games both at the Moda Center and at the Coliseum, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to tell you, I am pretty excited to get them back on the ice now, given whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on now. That is a real challenge for us,â&#x20AC;? he said. While the start of the WHL season has been pushed back indefinitely, Kramer expects something and some point for season 45 on Portlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frozen pond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty excited by the fact that there is 45 years of history that is there and one year, a pandemic, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think should squash that out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we look at this, what we are excited about, we are reinvigorating and adding to the excitement that the Winterhawks have developed coming out of the pandemic going forward.â&#x20AC;?

General Manager Doug Piper and Head coach Mike Johnston will remain on board as the Hawks venture into the future, and that might mean a logo and sweater change too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly, we have to think about it. Clearly, we have to do our due diligence and think about it. There is a whole process even though the league that requires 18-months to do anything itself,â&#x20AC;? Kramer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is ironic. It was one of the most beloved logos in all of hockey, but we understand others donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate it as PXFKVRZHÂśUHGHÂżQLWHO\JRLQJ to have to look and see what the right thing is for the team and what the right thing is for the community and make some decision on that.â&#x20AC;?

Anvitha Mahankali 10th Grade, Jesuit HS Anvitha Mahankali - 10th Grade, Jesuit HS I've always enjoyed baking, but I really took it up during quarantine. I baked blueberry muffins with a beautiful, golden crumble on top. I thought they looked so golden and perfect when I took them out of the oven, so I decided to have a small photoshoot for my muffins. I picked some flowers from our garden and decorated the muffins in a woven wooden basket. I placed the muffins in some natural sunlight and the rays danced off of the golden muffins, making them look even more scrumptious.

en-year-old Atharv Kapoor wakes up every morning with a problem. A chess problem. On the demonstration chess board on his bedroom wall is a new tactical chess problem for him to solve. His dad, Aditya, also a good chess player, sets up the positions. At WKHDJHRIÂżYHKLVGDGWDXJKWKLP to play chess. $WKDUYQRZDÂżIWKJUDGHVWXdent at Montessori School of Beaverton, plays chess games with other kids on the website Chess. com. He records his games and reviews them with Coach Larry at their weekly skype chess lessons. During the lessons he learns new openings and works on endgames, tactics and chess strategy. Atharv misses going to tournaments and playing in person games where he can exchange chess ideas and look at opponentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; games between rounds. He misses the big two-day state chess

tournament at Seaside every April where there are 300 school students playing. The giant trophies DUHÂżOOHGZLWKVDOWZDWHUWDII\ which Atharv enjoys as much as winning the trophy. Besides chess, Atharv also plays the piano and is learning to SOD\WKHĂ&#x20AC;XWHE\ZDWFKLQJYLGHRV on YouTube. Bike riding around the neighborhood gets him outside and away from the chess board but not for long. Atharv is soon back on the chess site looking for his next opponent or heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go looking for his dad to play a game. Beating his dad is almost as much fun as winning a trophy full of salt water taffy.

Why learn chess? Simple: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great mental workout that helps children perform well in the classroom. Chess is a logical game where kids have to plan ahead and adjust to new situations. But most of all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun!
