central part of our community are our children and it is critical that we have programs available for them. The Beaverton Police Activities League (PAL) is one of these vital programs that supports the at-risk children in our community. The Beaverton PAL chapter was formed in 1997 and resulted in a partnership between the Beaverton Police Department, area businesses and concerned citizens. PAL provides programs and activities year round for kids 8 to 18 years of age in the Beaverton Resource Center and at various sites throughout the community. PAL gives children a safe and nurturing place to go after school to participate in art classes, physical activities such as boxing, receive help with homework through the Homework Club, develop leadership skills through the Youth Leadership Club or Girls Empowerment Group, or simply use the facilities as an option instead of going home to an empty house. You may have heard on the news at that the Portland PAL is

closing its doors due to a lack of funding. Unfortunately, this is having an effect on our local Beaverton PAL as well; as they are under the Portland PAL non-profit umbrella. I have been working closely with the City and community leaders to do everything possible to prevent the closure of Beaverton PAL and keep this valuable resource available for our children. However, additional assistance is required and PAL is asking for support. Without additional funding, Beaverton PAL will also be forced to close its doors. If that were to happen, it would leave many area youth without activities and, in some cases, without a place to go after school.

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 first edition in April of 2011 with the help of the city and the Farmers Market. That first issue was 16 pages. Today, the paper is 32 pages and sponsored by the most important community organizations: City Hall, police, library, historical society, TVF&R, WCVA, THPRD, Washington Square and Cedar Hills Crossing to name a few.

What's the focus?

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 first visit nearby businesses and give them a chance before moving on.

Should I advertise?

Absolutely! With our unique layout, colorful design and community content, our readers are beyond loyal not only because they want to know "what's happening this month in Beaverton" but also because they completely agree with our philosophy of Shop Local - Give Local - Stay Local. As a local business, your ad will get seen by those who are willing to go out of their way to shop local. These residents are your best customers and our best readers! In addition, we don’t print massive quantities and mail them out to uninterested parties. Our papers are located in convenient, local and high traffic locations ready to be picked up by those who love Beaverton.

THPRD: Connecting people, parks and nature New trail crossing at Walker boosts safety for users

U

sers of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District’s Waterhouse Trail in northwest Beaverton now have a safer, quicker way to cross busy Walker Road. A signalized mid-block crossing is now open to the public between Schendel Avenue and 167th Avenue. It enables walkers, runners and bicyclists on the north-south trail to cross SW Walker Road safely and efciently while having minimal impact on vehicular trafc. “We believe this signicantly improves the user’s experience on our Waterhouse Trail,” said THPRD General Manager Doug Menke. “Improvements like this

encourage more people to take advantage of our expanding trail system in the greater Beaverton area.” At the crossing, users push a button that turns the overhead trafc signal from green to yellow to red. Motorists stop briey to let the trail users cross, then continue after the signal turns green again. Primary funding for the mid-block crossing was provided by a $243,000 grant from the Oregon Department of Transportation’s Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Program. THPRD, which added $27,000, applied for the grant in 2010 with the support of Washington County. Design work began in summer 2011 and construction started in September 2012. Following a ve-month installation process, the facility opened to the public on Feb. 4.

ABOUT THPRD

Formed in 1955, THPRD is the largest special park district in Oregon, spanning about 50 square miles and serving more than 220,000 residents in the greater Beaverton area. The district provides year-round recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.

Offerings include thousands of widely diverse classes, 90 park sites with active recreational amenities, 60 miles of trails, eight swim centers, six recreation centers, and 1,400 acres of natural areas. For more information, visit www.thprd. org or call 503/645-6433.

Used for both recreation and bicycle commuting, the 5.5mile Waterhouse Trail is one of the district’s most popular trails. It connects residential neighborhoods, employment and commercial centers, schools, and THPRD facilities to bus and light-rail transit and to the regional trail network. An estimated 80,000 to 100,000 people use it each year. “We expect those numbers to increase now that this new crossing at Walker Road is open,” Menke said.

With its own trafc signal, the new mid-block crossing at Walker Road increases safety for users of the Waterhouse Trail. It opened to the public Feb. 4.

In conjunction with the mid-block crossing, THPRD realigned about 150 feet of the trail on the south side of Walker Road to improve accessibility for users. Funding was provided through the district’s system development charges.

BHS students raise money while honoring classmate By FOX 12 Staff

eaverton High School students raised money for a good cause while honoring a beloved classmate who courageously battled cancer. The school hosted its “Week of Wishes” starting Feb. 11 with various activities aimed at raising money for the Make-AWish Foundation. It concluded Friday with the school’s ninth-annual “Jam the Dam!” event. It happened in conjunction with Beaverton High School’s basketball game against Southridge, with free T-shirts for fans, a special halftime show, contests and a silent auction. The goal was to raise at least $15,000, enough for the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant three wishes. A past recipient of one of those wishes was Maddie Lauer. This year, the event was in her honor. Maddie was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of thyroid cancer the day before Thanksgiving of 2011. Doctors only gave her months, but she lived for almost a year. Just before she died in November 2012,

Maddie Lauer (third from right) was voted Beaverton High School homecoming queen just before her death in November 2012. her classmates voted the 14-year-old freshman homecoming queen. She became the first freshman in school history to receive that recognition. “My heart dropped, it was pretty amazing,” said Maddie’s mother, Andrea Lau-

er, in an interview in November 2012. Maddie passed away after cancerous tumors spread to her lungs just a few weeks later. The girl with the soft heart and strong soul died surrounded by those who loved her the most.

That love was again on display in a big way at Beaverton High School in February. The gym was packed with people for the conclusion of the “Week of Wishes,” with everyone showing their support for Maddie’s memory, her family and for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. All donations made to the Make-AWish Foundation of Oregon that night were in honor of “Queen Maddie.” “Beaverton High School is a really special place,” said volunteer Kathryn Robinson. “It’s over 100 years old and what I love about this event is that you have generations of people with one thing in common who all come back for this really special night and this year it’s to honor Maddie,” she said.

T

t has been almost a year now since I moved my photography business into a portrait studio in oldtown Beaverton. I feel very fortunate to have such a quaint house/ studio in which to photograph newborns and babies but there is also some fantastic outdoor areas where I can shoot children and families as well. The portrait on the cover was taken in a natural area near my studio. I like it a lot because it changes personality with the seasons throughout the year making it the perfect backdrop. It was about this time last year, with Spring in the air, that I took this portrait. The

grass had started to grow and the sun had come out for that day allowing me to get this beautiful shot. But the setting is just a small part of the equation. Getting the right expression from my young subjects are almost as difficult to control as the weather! So one simple trick I use to get smiles on the kiddos faces is to tell the parent to say something funny while pulling them in close. Depending on what the parent says, it's usually enough to get some genuine giggles and smiles. Can you tell I love this kind of "posed" portrait photography?  Dawn Goei is a Beaverton mom of 2 wonderful kids who have a few more photos taken of them perhaps they think is necessary.

The evening event is scheduled for Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm and the public is invited to join in this free celebration of art. The show will continue through March 30, 2013. The gallery is located at 12570 SW Broadway Street in Beaverton. Campbell explains, “I’ve been referred to as “all about drama” and I guess that is true to an extent. I love the drama of the way glass is formed and

the process of glass becoming art. I’ve always loved black and white photos, and it can be seen in a lot of my work, as I like the contrast of black and white glass and the introduction of some color.” She continues, “15 years of exploring all the different techniques you can do with glass has made me realize I’ve barely scratched the surface.” 

H.A.R.T. Theatre presents

By H.A.R.T. Staff

A Midsummer Night's Dream

W

illiam Shakespeare's classic tale "A Midsummer Night's Dream" has been anything but a dream for the HART Theatre troop in Hillsboro this Winter. It's late February and twenty-four actors, (not including understudies), and another ten or twelve production team members are almost half-way through a nine-week rehearsal process for this preformance which is turning out to be one of our best! The schedule, however, has been tough so far, (no) thanks to the current rash of flu and colds which hit the cast like dominoes. "That appears to be nearly over, and in the meantime", says the di-

rector, who was himself out for a week, "good people stepped up to keep things rolling". "Those people, and everyone else, are now part of the family", he says, "and this is how a community theatre thrives". This production has become even better because now everyone is more than happy to be here enjoying what they love to do. We invite you to come and celebrate A Midsummer Night's Dream with us. Come see and feel the energy that got us through the Winter months! 

Patent Medicines, Sure Cures, And Snake Oils Medicine in the 18th & 19th Centuries

By Ann Koppy

U

nregulated and often deadly, patent medicines were often the first choice for home health care in the 18th and 19th centuries. These drug compounds-- seldom patented, but usually trademarked-- originated in England as proprietary medications granted “Patents of royal favor” by kings and queens. Colonists brought them to America in the early 18th century. Dr. Bateman’s Pectoral Drops—aniseed, camphor, and opium—were sold in Massachusetts by 1720 and said to cure rheumatism, influenza, and colds.

Published in Chico Weekly Record, 1897

By the 1850s manufacturing the products had become big business, driven by self-diagnosis and self-medication. Physicians’ fees were frequently unaffordable, prescribed medicines ineffective, and treatment painful. The medical profession called these over-thecounter remedies quackery—dangerous, ineffective, and laden with cocaine, morphine, or opium. Very profitable and widely- popular, they were readily available by mail order or in drugstores for almost every condition and age—adults, children, and infants. Glowing recommendations and secret ingredients promised therapeutic relief for scrofula (tuberculosis infection of lymph nodes in the neck), venereal disease, teething, colic, consumption (tuberculosis), colds, cancer, and indigestion. Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound was the best-known elixir for women. It promised to “cure entirely the worst form of …all Ovarian troubles, Inflammation and Ulceration, Falling and Displacements, and the consequent Spinal Weakness, and is particularly adapted to the Change of Life.” Pinkham (1819-1883) began to brew a concoction of herbs, roots and 18% alcohol to ease “female complaints” in her Massachusetts home in the 1860s.

Patent Medice, 1885 Advertisement

She encouraged customers to write to her with their medical concerns at a time when doctors and their female patients were uncomfortable discussing them. As the 19th century drew to a close, physicians and medical societies brought increased pressure to force manufacturers to disclose ingredients. The temperance movement, concerned with the high alcohol content, joined forces to prevent the use of liquor in medications. The alcohol content by volume percentage ranged from 13% in Allen’s Sarsaparilla to 45% in Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters. Not every patent medicine was pure quackery. A Missouri physician and a Pennsylvania company in the early 19th century formulated anti-fever pills containing quinine. Extracted from the cinchona tree, it treated malarial fever and inflammations. Another compound dating from the 1860s contained acetanilide, a precursor of acetomenaphine that reduced pain and fever.

Patent medicine bottles, 1890~1905

Snake oils were similar, but less deadly. It was a generic term for cure-alls sold at traveling medicine shows, usually in the Old West beginning in the 1860s. A pitchman, often calling himself a doctor, and his planted accomplice proclaimed the wonders of these miraculous, but bogus, liquids. Genuine snake

oil was produced by a Chinese water snake and rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Its use originated with Chinese workers on the transcontinental railroad line as a traditional treatment for inflammation, aches, and pains from difficult manual labor. The phony treatments may have contained rattlesnakes or, more likely, a combination of camphor, red peppers, mineral oil, and food coloring that produced some relief. Eventually, the words became a generic phrase for any worthless, ineffective, and fake preparation or deceptive communication.

Baltimore American, April 11, 1904, p.5

It’s unclear whether Beaverton’s earliest stores sold patent medicines. If not, these “sure panaceas for every ailment under the sun”1 were widely available in Portland and Salem. The federal government stepped in to regulate these products with their imaginative names and outrageous claims by passing the Pure Food and Drug Act in 1906. The law, which was vehemently opposed by a trade group known as the Proprietary Association, banned the sale of adulterated or mislabeled food and drug products. It also required that active components be listed on packaging. Furthermore, drugs would have to meet specific purity levels. It was among the first consumer protection rulings in the country. 

he Hoover-Minthorn House in Newberg, Oregon, was home to Herbert Hoover, 31st President of the United States, from 1885-1889. It is now preserved as a memorial to him and to the lifestyle of the Quaker community which shaped his boyhood experience. It has been fully restored to its original condition c. 1881, and contains many of its original furnishings, as well as memorabilia of the period and items belonging to President Hoover. About the Speakers Sarah Munro is the new director at the Hoover-Minthorn House Museum in Newberg, Oregon. The museum is owned and operated by the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in Oregon. Sarah has been active with the Friends of Timberline for many years and wrote a history of the lodge, Timberline Lodge: The History, Art and Craft of an American Icon (2009). Kyle Jansson has published articles on President Hoover’s years in Salem. A former director of the Marion county Historical Society, he organized the Hoover for President Campaign in 2000.  For more information: The Hoover-Minthorn House 503-538-6629 | www.thehoover-minthornhousemuseum.org

March Recipe

Vendor Spotlight: C'est Si Bon Honest French Crepes

By Ginger Rapport

Message from the Market Master

Cabbage - A Super Veggie! don’t need to tell you that produce is limited this time of year. Having said that, there is one vegetable that is abundantly available right now and that is cabbage. Cabbage, like all of its cruciferous relatives, are known as Super Veggies. They have it all vitamins, fiber, and disease-fighting phytochemicals. I love coleslaw so that is a no brainer. Cabbage is delicious shredded and sautéed, added to soups and stews, or stuffed and steamed. I’m not sure why, but I never really thought to roast it until I saw a Martha Stewart recipe on Pinterest that called for roasting thick slices at a high temperature.

I

The recipe called for cutting the cabbage into 1” thick slices. I cut mine just a little thinner, more like ¾”. You then brush them with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and if you like, sprinkle with caraway or fennel seed.  Roast them at 400 degrees (in an electric oven, 450 in a gas oven) until cabbage is tender and edges are golden. I roasted mine for a shorter time because I wanted to keep it a little crunchy. Combining this with another idea from Martha Stewart, I squeezed fresh lemon over the cooked cabbage which gave it a bright fresh taste. It was so delicious and so simple. I don’t know why I never did this before. You definitely want to give it a try. 

O

wner of C’est Si Bon, Gabrielle Esbeck, recently returned from France where she travels annually to see her family. Growing up in Bordeaux, Gabrielle learned at an early age the importance of eating local, fresh, and seasonal foods. When moving to Portland, she and her husband, John immediately fell in love with the Portland area Farmer’s Markets and decided to embark on a culinary venture. Four years ago they started C’est Si Bon, an on-site sweet and savory creperie that focuses on healthy, clean and sustainable food. They are regular vendors at that the Beaverton Farmer’s Market and love connecting with the customers. They feel that markets such as these are what make Portland so wonderful. As a young student in Southern California, Gabrielle originally arrived in the United States in her early 20’s. It was there where she met here husband John, and they have since traveled the world, exploring food in over 20 different countries. In Thailand they they fell in love with street food and learned to cook from the locals. This was the inspiration for their creperie, their French version of “street food”. Gabrielle understands the importance of “terroir”, the combination of climate, soil, and environmental factors that give ingredients their distant character. She uses local product from market vendors and often buys directly from farms such as Gathering Together and Winters Farm. They use flour from two nearby resources, Bob’s Red Mill and Shepherd’s Grain, and are experimenting with a gluten-free crepe that can soon be found on the menu. Gabrielle says, “The way I cook for my customers is the same way I cook for my family - with

Shop Local – Give Local – Stay Local… this is how we build a better Beaverton.

fresh, seasonal, and local organic ingredients.” During the height of the season, Gabrielle and John work daily at the markets around town, allowing them to regularly buy fresh products from other vendors. After their recent trip to France, Gabrielle was newly inspired by the duck farm on which she and her husband worked. They were taught about the ancestral practices and techniques of duck farming. They visited local farmers markets, chef friends and enjoyed being reminded of the practices of French farmers and chefs alike. You may soon see smoked duck breast on the menu at C’est Si Bon! Gabrielle encourages others to try cooking crepes at home and offers a few good tips for trying this on your own. She emphasizes the importance of using good ingredients and a well “seasoned” pan at a very high temperature. She says it’s a fun activity to do with your kids, and flipping your crepe in the air is something not to be afraid of! Gabrielle suggests exploring different recipes and ingredients, and recommends not letting your crepe get too doughy or too crispy. Some of Gabrielle’s favorite crepe fillings include creamed organic spinach with cheese and a little bit of crispy bacon. For a sweet edition, she loves to use lemon curd with fresh seasonal berries. Gabrielle has worked a variety of jobs from teaching French to television production, but always returns back to her passion of cooking good food. She attends the Beaverton Farmer’s Market regularly, rain or shine, and feels as though she is part of the “family”.

Shepherd's Pie

A.K.A. Cottage Pie

By Greg Mattie

T

he term ‘Cottage Pie’ dates back to 1791 when potatoes grew in popularity. It was an affordable dish to prepare among the poor. It is basically a dish containing a meat mixture (beef, lamb, mutton). Meat pies have been around since the Middle Ages. The term ‘Shepherd’s Pie’ did not appear until 1877 and is synonymous with the use of lamb.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and enjoy with a pint of Guinness!

Ingredients:

Directions

Meat Mixture

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees

• 1-1½ lb. Ground Meat* (I used ½# lamb and ¾# veal) • 3 slices diced hickory smoked bacon • ½ cup green peas • ½ cup diced carrots • ½ cup diced red onion • Salt & Pepper to taste • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

Mashed Potatoes • • • •

4-6 Yukon Gold potatoes ½ cup cream 2 Tbsp. butter Salt/Pepper to taste

Topping • ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese • ¼ cup chopped chives

BEAVERTON FARMERS MARKET

MARKET MARKET

FIRST & THIRD SATURDAYS 10:00-1:30

1. Cut the potatoes and boil to prepare mashed potatoes. When complete, mash the potatoes with the cream, butter, salt and pepper. 2. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil on medium heat and brown the bacon, onion and carrots until the bacon is translucent (5 min). Drain excess grease and add the meat and peas. Add the Salt/Pepper and garlic and continue to brown until all pink is gone (8-10 min). 3. In an oven safe dish, pour the meat mixture into the dish and spread evenly. Top the mixture with the mashed potatoes and spread evenly as well. Sprinkle the cheese and chives atop the potatoes. Bake in the oven for 10 to13 minutes until cheese is melted.

History varies regarding the origin of this dish. It may have originated in Scotland or in Northern England. Now I know that this dish may not have originated in Ireland but it is a popular addition in Irish kitchens. It is versatile and easy to prepare. 

Message from Karen Bolin

Tuesday, March 5th at Aloha High School from 6pm-8:30pm erhaps we will have an early Spring! It is a wonderful time in Oregon and we in Aloha are looking forward to events at Aloha High School, community support of various businesses with our monthly "mobbing" organized by the Aloha Warrior Van Host, Jeff Eddy, more hours at our new library, and of course Spring Break the last week in March! A time for rest and renewal or travel and adventure? We continue to welcome new residents to the Aloha area. Lots of new multi-family housing is being built, so as we continue to grow the question remains: What should Aloha look like in 10 or 20 years? The Aloha-Reedville study is in it's 3rd year of answering this question. You are invited to the discussion. Please attend and VOTE for OPTIONS and SOLUTIONS to improve our Aloha community.

dwards Center has entered an exciting new chapter in its 40year history with the opening of the Aloha Community Center. Besides expanding Edwards Center’s programs for people with developmental disabilities, the renovated building has new services available for the local community including: rentable meeting and event spaces, volunteer opportunities, a commercial kitchen, a coffee cart, and a daily meal service run by Meals on Wheels People. Founded in 1972 by a group of Washington County parents of developmentally disabled adults, Edwards Center began as a day program dedicated to providing the skills these individuals would need to live in the community, rather than a cold, impersonal institution. Today, Edwards Center serves over 300 Oregonians with developmental disabilities such as

autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and other conditions. The 11,000 sq. ft. Aloha Community Center was conceived of in 2010 as part of a larger development on Edwards Center’s property on SW Kinnaman Road. The Community Center offers expanded hours of programming for people with developmental disabilities as a low-cost option for ongoing education and socialization. Five new homes will be built in Summer of 2013 to provide long-term housing to people with disabilities and their family caregivers.  For rental inquiries, meeting space booking, class schedules, kitchen rentals, volunteer opportunities or employment information please call (503) 642-1581.

illamette West Habitat for Humanity is excited to announce the launch of their newest program: “Veteran Repair Corps”. The program will allow Habitat volunteers to do critical home repair projects on non-Habitat homes owned by U.S. veterans. The program is a veterans-support initiative of Habitat for Humanity International and The Home Depot Foundation. Willamette West is one of 84 Habitat affiliates selected nationwide to participate in this program, designed to support U.S. veterans in need of home repair. Repair Corps is designed under the same model as new homes built with Habitat families where the veteran will repay a portion of the repair using a zero-percent interest loan from the affiliate. 

ver 300,000 people die every year from sudden cardiac arrest. Most patients die before ever reaching a hospital. TVF&R’s commitment to cardiac survival has resulted in more lives saved than the national average. We hope that you will partner with us in the following ways so more lives can be saved.

The PulsePoint app also connects citizens to TVF&R’s emergency activity. Users can view active incidents and pinpoint incident locations on an interactive map. Users also can choose to be notified of fires, car crashes, rescues, and hazardous materials incidents, and listen to live radio traffic.

Oregon’s first CPR smartphone app

Defibrillators The most common cardiac arrest has the potential to be converted by an electrical shock delivered by an AED. Although our Firefighter EMTs/Paramedics arrive within minutes with an advanced cardiac defibrillator, it can be too late. Public access AEDs are simple and easy to use and can administer life-saving shock even before emergency responders arrive. If your business has an AED that can be used by the public, ensure it is our PulsePoint database by emailing us at AED@tvfr.com. 

Last month TVF&R was the first fire department in Oregon to implement PulsePoint - a free CPR smartphone app. The PulsePoint app enables subscribers who have indicated they are CPR trained to be alerted to a cardiac arrest event simultaneously with TVF&R’s Firefighter EMTs/Paramedics. The app alerts citizens within a ¼ mile radius of the incident (in a public place) and identifies the nearest public access automated external defibrillator (AED). Statistics show that only about one quarter of cardiac arrest victims receive bystander CPR and defibrillation. Citizens comfortable with Hands Only CPR (no rescue breathing) and/or those that have taken a CPR class are encouraged to sign up. Hands Only CPR can help sustain an adult in cardiac arrest until paramedics arrive. Visit: www.handsonlycpr.org for more information. (See ads in Restaurant and Entertainment sections)

Beaverton Restaurants Dining Spotlight: decarli

D

eCarli is a restaurant created by Jana and Paul DeCarli, a husband and wife team who along with their professional staff, are dedicated to food, wine, and providing an excellent dining experience. Paul, a longtime Oregonian and a graduate of Western Culinary Institute, developed his expertise at many of Portland’s top restaurants including Paragon, Fratelli, Saucebox, and Tuscany Grill where he was Executive Chef. Jana, an Oregon native and University of Oregon graduate, established her outstanding service skills and standards at San Francisco’s esteemed 42 Degrees and Portland’s Bluehour.  Decarli is committed to showcasing the state’s considerable

bounty of seasonal ingredients.  Paul’s culinary style draws on his Swiss/Italian-American roots to create food that is at once sophisticated and rustic. The Polenta Fries and Braised Beef Short Ribs have become house favorites. The restaurant’s interior reflects the couple’s approach to food and wine—warm, inviting, thoughtful and authentic. The 4000 square foot space features restored Douglas Fir floors, exposed brick walls, and a soaring beam and rafters ceiling punctuated with skylights. Be sure to check out the Private Dining Room adjacent to decarli featuring a reclaimed wood wall and vintage wrought-iron chandeliers. It is perfect for rehearsal dinners, corporate parties and more. We invite you to join us soon.

ary Evans and Don Murphy live at Creekside Village Retirement. Together they took a field trip picnic to Cooks Park in Tigard where they realized there was more than a friendship between them. Mary and Don had both been married before and never thought that living in a retirement community would mean another chance at love. Last month, on Valentine’s

Day, Mary and Don were married in front of the Creekside fireplace, where they have spent many hours getting to know each other. Family, friends and staff witnessed the occasion. The Pastor, the husband of a staff member, performed the ceremony. The day ended with a dance that evening for all to toast the new couple. Congratulations Mary and Don!

he Elsie Stuhr Center is designed for adults 55 years and better. We offer a wide variety of classes, trips and tours, special events, a fitness center, lunch and socialization. Please come to our center for a tour and to learn about the numerous activities we have available. In the evening, we host a specialized recreation program.

Senior Forum: Staying at Home Saturday, March 30, 10am - Noon at the Beaverton City Library ne of the biggest challenges facing many senior citizens today centers on their home. For some it is staying in their home as they age; for others it is updating or modifying their home for a disability; and not a few wonder where they can find a new home that fits their limited income. Other concerns include the rights of tenants and the methods of reducing their possessions as they prepare to move to more compact living arrangements. To help them meet these challenges more confidently, the Beaverton Senior Citizens Advisory Committee is happy to sponsor this forum. Andrea Nelson, of the City of Beaverton staff, will moderate the session. Representatives from these organizations will be present

Dealing With Moss, Mold, and Mildew S

pring will soon be in full bloom throughout the Pacific Northwest, but not everything green will be in the garden. As the rains subside, we will see green concrete everywhere – walkways, driveways, and patios. Looking closely at the house, we’re even likely to see the telltale sign of moss on the roof and mildew on our siding. This time of year, the most frequent request I get is to pressurewash something. But, thanks to modern chemistry, getting rid of moss, mildew, and slime molds isn’t nearly as tough a job as it once was and many times I don’t even need the pressure washer. There are several really good products available at all the big box stores, department stores, and most hardware stores. In fact, Lilly-Miller introduced a new moss remover designed just for concrete last year. The product I’ve been using

very successfully for several years is 30 Seconds Outdoor Cleaner and I guess I’m reluctant to change just because it is so darned effective. In many cases, all I need to do is spray it on the concrete or siding, agitate it with a stiff bristle brush, and rinse it off with a hose. And, it’s effective at killing slime molds and mildew as well as the moss. The same company released a product last year which promises to be as effective, but with even less work. It’s called Spray & Walk Away. Spray it on using a garden sprayer, and Mother Nature will wash away all the black and green yuk over time. This is also the only product I know of that will deal effectively with lichen. And, if you are planning to paint your home, leave the pressure washer in the garage, because they just

released 30 Seconds Outdoor Painter’s Prep. Best part of all, these products are manufactured right here in Troutdale, Oregon. Occasionally, I do have to break out the pressure washer to deal with really tough jobs. It’s important to remember, though, that just washing moss, mold, and mildew from the surface is usually not enough. The “roots” are still embedded and remain alive in any porous surface like concrete or roofing materials. They will continue to grow and do damage, unless a chemical is used to kill them before using the pressure washer. While the power of high pressure water can really speed up the cleaning process, it’s important to remember it can also do extensive damage very quickly.

It will cut through vinyl and cedar siding along with composition roofing materials like a sharp knife. Be sure to use a wide enough tip angle (usually 25 or 40 degree) to disperse the water while still getting the surface clean. As a final note, when it comes to removing the “green” of springtime, remember to always wear personal protective clothing and equipment. Read and follow all the warning labels on any chemicals and always wear close-toed shoes along with eye and hearing protection when using the pressure washer. 

Frequently Asked Questions about Window Tinting in Oregon Oregon Tint Law Enacted 2003 Can I tint the windows of my car to reduce glare from the sun? (and it looks cool!) Oregon has window tint laws. The total light transmittance through the window with the tint installed must be 35% or more. Any motorist who operates a vehicle that does not comply with Oregon’s window tint law may be subject to a $360 fine. I recently moved to Oregon from another state that allowed darker window tint. Do I have to remove it? Cars purchased out of state and then brought into Oregon are subject to Oregon law. Tinting requirements in some neighboring states may be less strict that Oregon’s. If you don’t know what the light transmittance is, take the car to an installer and ask them to put a meter on it. If it’s darker than allowed, you need to remove it. Do I need to get something from the tint installer? Yes, tint installers are required to give customers a certificate stating the tint light transmittance and reflectance, along with what the total light transmittance through the window is. My doctor says I need to avoid the sun. Can I add dark window tint because of a medical condition? You may get your physician or optometrist to provide you with an affidavit stating that there is a physical condition that requires you to have windows tinted darker than Oregon law allows. If I have a pickup or SUV can I darken the back windows? Under Oregon law, a “Multipurpose passenger vehicle” may have darker tint than required above as long as the tint is installed behind the driver.

Traffic Q&A

By Officer Mark Hyde

With the Beaverton Police Dept.

Q

: There’s a strange signal at the fire station on Farmington Rd near Beaverton High School. It has 3 red lights that stay on for a while then flash. I haven’t noticed this new signal at other fire stations so what is it and why was it installed? Also, must cars stay stopped even then its flashing? A: This is a new type of traffic signal and has been used successfully to increase motorist awareness at high traffic volume, midblock crosswalks in other cities around the country. It is a “HAWK” or High-intensity Activated crosswalk signal. While the lights are solid red the motorist must stop and stay stopped. Once the lights go to a flashing red the motorist must come to a complete stop but may proceed when the pedestrian has cleared the crosswalk.

Q

: If I change my mind half way through a lane change, can I go back to my original lane or do I need to complete the lane change then go back to my original lane? A: You must make (2) legal lane changes in order for it to pass muster with the law. That means proper signaling at the proper distances to make both moves. You can’t change your mind in the middle of a lane change.

Q

: Can I make a U-turn at major intersections that are not marked with a “No U-turn” sign?

A: U-turns are not allowed at light controlled intersections unless there is signage permitting it.

Why are dark tinted windows a safety concern? Dark tinted windows make it very difficult for law enforcement to view the inside of cars during traffic stops. Unlawful motorists may try to conceal weapons behind the tinted glass, putting police officers at grave risk.  Shop Local – Give Local – Stay Local… this is how we build a better Beaverton.

www.BeavertonResourceGuide.com Adventures in Beaverton Tales of a Beaverton Super-Mom A Good Mom (for the most part) by Maureen Wilson

F

or the most part, I know I’m a good mom. Or at least I repeat that mantra to myself in a hushed voice when I feel like pulling out my hair strand by strand. Even on my worst days, I’m fairly sure my husband knows I’m doing my best and I’m hoping that my kids, at this point, will need very little therapy. But no matter how fondly I dreamt of motherhood BEFORE having kids, the reality is this parenting gig can often be HARD-and the moment one gets the least bit arrogant about their successes, your children will be there to remind you there is always room for improvement. We’re juggling a lot this year, and I have strategized like a mad-

woman to make our schedule viable and the ship afloat. But the other day as I was feeling rather accomplished in crossing off 14 of the 22 things on my to-do list, my 10 yr-old brought me back down to earth after patiently asking me several times to play a game with her. The timing wasn’t prime, as I was in the middle of finishing a couple of big projects that would undoubtedly continue to go undone for the next three months if I did not complete them at THAT moment-while simultaneously attempting to thaw a roast beef that was in no way going to be ready in time for dinner-so I put her off in hopes of “finishing” (have you realized yet, moms, that we will NEVER be finished??)

The next time I glanced at my list, it had two additional items added: “Play board game with Milan” and “Be spontaneous!” Because even though I know I’m a good mom, if my kids have to include themselves on lists to get my attention, it may be time to order take out and accept that the 80’s curtains are just meant to be a part of my life. It’s the 4 yr-old, though, who currently has the market on giving reality checks. Recently when I picked her up from the babysitter’s, we made a typical run to Safeway in hopes of finding something quick and easy for dinner. She, though, had in mind more of a leisurely stroll through the aisles that included touching anything that was red or covered in hearts. By the time we got to the checkout line, I could feel my blood pressure rising as I knew we were going to be late picking up my other two from their respective locations. Yet when the cashier asked me how I was doing, I naturally answered, “I’m fine! How are you?” Kiana looked up at me with a smirk and said, “You are NOT fine at all! You are COMPWEET-WEE GWUMPY!” Guilty

as charged. That same 4 yr-old has suddenly decided that she enjoyed her recent birthday SO much that she really would like to do it ALL OVER AGAIN-- so she’s insisting that not only is she NOT 4, but that she never had a party! And that I never planned or paid for it! And that yes, those children DID show up at Pump It Up but it wasn’t for HER birthday!! (This conversation sounds sort of humorous until you’ve been at it for about 72 rounds and are seriously contemplating returning her gifts to prove your point.) We were in the middle of a long car ride when this topic became a marathon discussion, and I was logically talking myself down from arguing with a preschooler when Kiana suddenly said, “But you know what I’m giving Aurelia for HER birf-day??” I was hugely relieved that we had finally switched gears to my 8 yrold, so I asked, “What??” “My hand,” she replied. “Aurelia loves my hand and I always want to be there to hold her with it.” And as I looked through the rear-view mirror and saw the familiar sight of my

two youngest with joined hands, I suddenly realized I was totally fine with being called out for my grumpiness and obsessive listmaking and would even let birthday parties go unacknowledged -if these girls would promise to love each other like that long after I’m gone. Because that, to me, would be the best kind of mothering that could ever happen. 

here does a children’s book writer or artist turn to, when looking to grow professionally, promote their work, and network with others? The Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI) is a non-profit, professional organization that does just

that. The Oregon chapter is active and expanding its resources, meeting the needs of beginning writers and artists, as well as authors of hundreds of published books. “There’s a wide range of needs,” says Amber Keyser, the liason for published and listed (PAL) members. “We’ve got some exciting workshops coming up, including one on March 9th called “Becoming a School Visit Ninja” and “Prepare Yourself” (on March 1), where writers and illustrators can shape up their manuscripts and portfolios for the annual conference May 17-18. Workshops bring authors and artists together, networking in a profession that can be quite solitary. “The local SCBWI chapter facilitates schmoozes, readings, finding critique groups, and collaborating with other local groups such as Wordstock and Literary Arts,” says Keyser. “Local artists now use
