My reasons for moving to Portland with my wife three years ago may sound familiar to some of us: we wanted to live in a place where we can appreciate the beauty that is the natural world RIWKH3DFL¿F1RUWKZHVW7KH Portland area has year-round greenery, waterfalls, wildlife, ÀRZHUVWKDWVHHPWREORRP non-stop, mild winters, and of course plenty of precipitation to keep things looking IUHVKDQGOXVK2QWKHÀLSVLGH I grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, and even though I haven’t lived there since my childhood, I still remember the dark, brutally cold winter months that felt more like testing my resolve for survival than anything else. So yes, the winter months here in Portland are dark and wet‌really dark and wet. But with the transition of the seasons comes new opportunity for us to enjoy the natural beauty that is all around us once again! So, here are some things about getting outside we may have forgotten about during our winter hibernation: 1. Say hello to your neighbors. 5HPHPEHUWKHP"7KH\DUH still there! What a gift it is to have community! It’s okay to knock on a door just to say hello. 2. Go for a walk. Walking is so good for all of us.

Hello Beaverton, welcome to another issue of The Beaverton Resource Guide. As a full-color, monthly newspaper that’s dedicated to the positive aspects of our community, you can be sure to ďŹ nd interesting and uplifting stories about what makes our city one of the best in the country (ranked #3 nationally for “Best Places to Raise a Familyâ€? in 2018 by www.livibility.com). The goal of The BRG is simple and can be easily read at the top of each page: connecting people who live, work or shop in and around Beaverton with the abundant local resources available. So whether you’re shopping and want to try out a new store or a new store that wants to reach out to new customers, The BRG is equally useful and happy to help play the role of match-maker. We also know a lot about what’s going on in the county and for those who are looking to get “Out & Aboutâ€?, we have the county’s event calendar, an exclusive with the Beaverton Farmers market, an extensive regional theatre line up, a full list of library programs as well as other announcements to help you connect to whatever interests you. The BRG is available for pickup at over 170 locations from major grocery retailers, restaurants, doctor ofďŹ ces and banks to city hall, hotels, regional libraries and the farmers market. For more information about advertising rates, current or past stories, distribution, our photo gallery and more, visit www.beavertonresourceguide.com. Thank you and I hope you had as much fun reading this issue as I had putting it together. Sincerely, Michael Wong (Managing Editor)

Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest orangutan turns 60 at Oregon Zoo Arriving in Oregon back in 1961 OREGON ZOO


he Oregon Zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest resident, ultra-geriatric Sumatran orangutan Inji, turned 60 this year. She is thought to be the oldest orangutan in the world. Âł,QMLÂśVLQDPD]LQJVKDSHIRU her age,â&#x20AC;? said Asaba Mukobi, the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior primate keeper. Âł6KHKDVQRPDMRUKHDOWKFRQcerns â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taking any special medications. Her age and remarkable condition say a lot about the quality of care sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s received over the years.â&#x20AC;? Injiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actual date of birth is

unknown. She was born in the wild around 1960, came to the United States through the wild animal trade (legal at the time) and was brought to the zoo by

her owner in 1961. She was estimated to be around a year old when she arrived at the zoo Jan. 30, 1961. Âł:HÂśUHWKDQNIXOWKDWZHÂśYH

been able to give Inji a good home, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartbreaking to think about the circumstances that brought her here,â&#x20AC;? Mukobi VDLGÂł(YHQWKRXJKWKHSHWWUDGH is illegal now, it still exists. It is considered a major threat to orangutansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; survival, along with human encroachment and habitat loss from palm oil plantations. Orangutans are at the brink of extinction â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially in Sumatra, where Inji comes from.â&#x20AC;? Both the Sumatran and Bornean orangutan species are considered critically endangered, with fewer than 15,000 Sumatran and 55,000 Bornean orangutans believed to remain. Inji is currently off-view as the zoo completes work on its

Why the different treatment for cats vs dogs? Dog licensing fees provide extra resources BONNIE HAYS My friend found a lost dog and when she called Animal Services, they came and picked the dog up from her house.

My quest to see the northern lights But study up before you go



bout a year ago, my family took a trip to Alaska in hopes to see the infamous aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights. But we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do enough planning and ended up not being able to see them, which has recently made me motivated to learn more.

For those of you who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about them, the northern/southern lights are a bunch of lights that appear in the night sky YDU\LQJLQFRORU7KH\DUH caused by collisions between certain gases (oxygen and

nitrogen) and electrically charged particles released from the sun. In my opinion, the aurora borealis is one of the most incredible phenomenons on this earth. 7KHFDWFKWKRXJKLVWKDW these lights are only present

in some areas of the world during certain seasons. Since the aurora happens near the magnetic poles, getting as close as possible to them will be the best chance at seeing them. Fairbanks Alaska and Iceland are two

really good places to travel to if you are trying to see them. %XWWKHPDJQLÂżFHQWOLJKWVDUH also sometimes present in the United States as well. Another important thing to know is that since the lights only appear in dark, clear skies, the best time to go hunting for them is in late August to early April, when the weatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear and there are long nights. Getting away from as much light pollution DVSRVVLEOHZLOODOVRVLJQLÂżcantly increase your chances of spotting them, though I NQRZWKDWFDQEHGLIÂżFXOW with the increase of fossil fuels in our air. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ever traveling during the winter, make sure

to look up where the aurora borealis is and keep these tips in mind! (p.s. make sure to dress really warm!) I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait until I can get another chance to see them in person.

Beaverton woman is on a mission to bring smiles and warm feet to children in need. Andie Proskus, 27, has muscular dystrophy and has been in the hospital due to surgeries and therapy for much of her life. During that time, she says she was given a pair of bright socks that brought a smile to her face and knew she had to pass along that feeling to others. So, she organizes socks drives for local childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hospitals, sometimes from her own hospital bed. She recently organized an event at Beaverton High School during halftime of a basketball game, where people tossed socks onto the basketball court. With the help of her friends and area schools, Proskus has been collecting socks for hospitalized children. She says their reaction makes all the hard work worth it. Âł,FDQUHODWHDORWWRZKDW the families and the kids are going through, and it not only brings a smile to their face, and helps brighten their day up for a little bit, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also very therapeutic for me, and warms my heart to see the smiles something as simple as a pair of colorful, fun pair of socks can bring,â&#x20AC;? Proskus said. Proskus has been doing these sock drives for about six years. She collected

more than 100 pairs of socks WKHÂżUVW\HDUDQGKDVQRZ collected over 10,000. Âł6RPHWKLQJDVVLPSOHDV a fun pair of socks can really make a difference and lift up the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day even if only for a few moments. It not only brings the child a smile, but also means a lot to their families, and it helps my own heart to and is very therapeutic,â&#x20AC;? Proskus said. Proskus is a graduate of Beaverton High School. She has received donations of socks from as far away as Australia.

planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well.... suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
