The Beaverton Resource Guide (BRG) is a free monthly community paper for the city of Beaverton, Oregon. 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, just over one year later, the paper is 32 pages and sponsored by a huge cross section of the city from shopping malls like Washington Square and Cedar Hills Crossing to public entities such as the police and fire departments, the Visitor’s Association (WCVA), the Senior Citizen’s Advisory Committee and the park district (THPRD) to name a few.

t’s Spring and since asparagus is in season, I bought a couple of bunches from New Seasons Market the other day. I’ve been searching for some fun and easy recipes to test out and one recipe from caught my attention: an “Absurdly Addictive Asparagus� salad recipe (asparagus, leeks, pancetta, pine nuts, etc., etc). It sounded so good and to top it off, I had just read an article called ‘Asparagus – the Anti-Aging Miracle Vegetable’. So how could I not try this out and share it with all of you.

1) In a large non-stick pan, add the EVOO and sautĂŠ the smoked salmon, asparagus and leeks, stirring frequently, over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes. 2) Add garlic, lemon and orange zest, toasted pine nuts and parsley and sautĂŠ for about 1 minute, until fragrant. Season to taste with freshly ground pepper and salt (some fresh lemon juice if you like) and serve.

One note that I should mention however is that in an attempt to make it healthier, I replaced the pancetta with smoked salmon and used EVOO instead of butter. Just as good I think and my taste testers gave it two thumbs up!

dentifying a child who is having trouble seeing at a distance is pretty straightforward for parents. They bring them in to see the optometrist or ophthalmologist and we have them seeing like eagles again in no time with glasses or contact lenses. The children I worry about, and the ones that often slip through the cracks, are the farsighted ones. Farsightedness (or hyperopia) sounds like a good thing, and in small degrees it is, but very farsighted children frequently struggle in school even though they can pass the school screening. A farsighted child and a very farsighted child can both see equally clearly at a distance. The difference is that the focusing system has to work harder in a child that is very farsighted. The greater the farsightedness, the more the child has to strain to see clearly. And this effort to see

clearly is even greater when the child is attempting to read. So even if your school-aged boy RUJLUOVHHPVWREHVHHLQJÀQHWKH\ need to have their eyes examined by an eye care professional. It’s up to us as parents to provide our kids with every competitive advantage and especially to make sure they are not starting out with a learning disadvantage.

pring is already here so now is the perfect time to get healthy and do some nutritional spring cleaning to improve your health and well-being. 4 Healthy Lifestyle Spring Cleaning Tips! 1. Stay hydrated – soda, tea and coffee do not count. Proper hydration really is the most important nutritional concern. Try to drink water consistently throughout the day. A good aim is about 2 quarts a day. Adequate hydration helps keep your system clean and running smoothly. 2. Clean out your pantry! Spring is a great time of year to go through your pantry and give it a new appearance. Get rid of old foods, junk foods and processed foods that do not offer nutritional value.

Wipe shelves and reorganize. Purchase healthy staples to inspire your inner cook. 3. Clean up your diet! A healthy diet is made up of real foods. Learn to shop differently and cook more of your own meals from scratch. When you are in control over the ingredients in your meals you know what is going into your body and it will most likely be more nutritional than any pre-prepared versions. 4. Proper nutrition and consistent exercise are the winning combination for living a healthy lifestyle. Getting involved in a program that works best for you is a key part to long-term health and success. 'PSNPSFJOGPSNBUJPO Contact - Meghan Saunders 503-427-9700

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, some 40% of all American children suffer from allergic rhinitis (allergies or hay fever).

While most people with allergies will tell you serial sneezing and increased mucus production are bothersome at best, the symptomatic charge of allergies seems far worse in children.

When I served as a SROLFHFKDSODLQ,WROGP\RIĂ€FHUV “If things are going well at home, things a work are better.â€? Our relationships are interconnected between home, work, or our social life. Because relationships are foundational in life I established Foundations 4 Your Life. My motto captures it, “Building Relationships for a Better Life.â€? I help build relationships at work by offering mini-seminars. These are typically one hour seminars on topics that can assist a business or company including: tMake Stress Work for You tPersonal & Professional Boundaries tDealing with DifďŹ cult Clients/Customers tCommunications Skills

Tom bought storage lockers while Judy shopped the garage and estate sales for bargains. Friends gave them a wish list and the search began, both enjoying every minute of it. Top Drawer Thrift Store is located at 12250 S.W. Broadway in downtown Beaverton’s Holland Plaza, which is across from Bed Bath and Beyond.

ave you heard of either of these two terms in relation to chiropractic care? They are not too common unless you’ve EHHQ WR WKH RIÀFH RI 'U 'DYLG Young in downtown Beaverton. Here’s what they mean:

Visceral Manipulation ‘Viscera’ relates to a form of manual therapy that focuses on the internal organs. The source of many dysfunctions may be far from where the pain is felt so this treatment consists of gentle compression, mobilization and elongation of the soft tissue around the organs. As the source of the problem is released the source of the pain is decreased. Craniosacral Craniosacral is based on the movement that results from a

change in volume of cerebral VSLQDO Ă XLG 7KH UK\WKP JRHV throughout the whole body so without complete mobility, you cannot have optimal function. Craniosacral treats this mobility issue.

Chehalem Day at the Beaverton Civic Theatre The Andrews Brothers


unique experience awaits anyone who attends the next Beaverton Civic Theater production opening on April 27th in the Auditorium of the Beaverton City Library. The Miracle Worker written by William Gibson, and directed by Doreen Lundberg is an insightful look at the struggles that a family with a handicapped child faces in an otherwise normal environment The play brings to life the true story of Annie Sullivan, the dedicated teacher, who helped the child Helen Keller learn to communicate despite Helen’s challenges of being both deaf and blind. Making her debut with Beaverton Civic Theatre in the role of Helen Keller is Hayley Rousselle. When asked how she prepared for this almost wordless part, Hayley replied ´ $FWXDOO\ WKLV LVQ¡W P\ Ă€UVW ZRUGOHVVUROH0\Ă€UVWVKRZDW Portland Center Stage was The Pillowman, a dark comedy. There I played “The Little Jesus Girlâ€?, a character that acted out her part without words. In the same show I also played a Deaf Mute, a character that required me to learn some sign language. I loved that challenge...â€? Since The Miracle Worker is about real people, bringing the accuracy to the role was a big part of the preparation for Hayley. “You really need to do background research. I, personally, have always been fascinated by Helen. I have read books about her and written many reports on her in school. I have

also watched every version of The Miracle Worker available, and I have seen my fair share of documentaries about her. This is a role that I have dreamed of playing.� The Miracle Worker opens Friday, April 27th and continues weekends through Sunday May 13th. Performances begin at 8 pm Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 pm on Sundays. Parking is free in the library parking lots. Ticket prices are $15 for DGXOWVIRUVWXGHQWVJURXSV and seniors (55 and older), and $5 for youths (10 and younger). For more information see the website at, email to info@beavertoncivictheatre. org, or call 503-754-9866. A talk back with the cast and director will be held after the May 6th performance.

On the Road with Beaverton Lodge


major construction and transformation project has been taking place over the past several months at the center and has now been completed. The center now has a new and more spacious front entry including additional parking spaces. The expansion created an enlarged fitness room with all new equipment, an expanded lobby and reception area. A new multipurpose area will be used for additional classes and activities. Beaverton city building codes required the inclusion of a complete fire prevention sprinkler system and ADA accessible restrooms. Funding

for the project was provided by the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District Bond Measure. Now that the dust has settled the grand reopening has been scheduled for May 9th at 10:00 AM. You are invited to attend the festivities, tour the facilities and enjoy some refreshments. If you are 55 or better you may want to consider signing up for some of the many classes and activities or utilize the state of the art exercise room or simply enjoy the social scene. The center will continue to be used by Loaves and Fishes with lunch being served Monday through Friday. The Annual Harvest Fest-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;April is gone and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do a thing... those road trips at Beaverton Lodge sure sound fun!â&#x20AC;?

ival and Sale was not held last year due to the construction but is scheduled for September 7th and 8th this year. As you proceed with spring cleaning or just cleaning out a closet or your garage consider setting aside items in good condition and contribute them for the sale. Donated items will be accepted in August with VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FGDWHVWREHHQDQQRXQFHG later. The Elsie Stuhr Center has been serving the THPRD area for over thirty years. The center was dedicated in honor of Elsie Stuhr who was instrumental in the development of the park district which serves the members both young and old in Beaverton and the surrounding area.

his month brings us the return of our wonderful Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market and Art Court. While we have been waiting all winter for the delicious smells and tastes of the local farms and kitchens, we remember those in our community who struggle with getting a hot meal every day. Loaves and Fishes operates a kitchen at the Elsie Stuhr Center, where seniors can enjoy a hot meal with others in the community Monday through Friday. They also provide a Meals on Wheels program which delivers hot meals to homebound seniors who are not able to get to Elsie Stuhr. Their menus are designed to provide at least one-third of the daily nutrients required for older adults. Each meal includes a salad, entrĂŠe, starch, vegetable, bread, dessert and milk. They also provide the DASH diet for those who require diabetic, soft, low cholesterol or low sodium meals. Loaves and Fishes has many volunteer opportunities at their Beaverton location. Meals on Wheels Drivers deliver hot meals

in the neighborhood weekdays. Kitchen Support helps to pack meals in coolers for Meals-OnWheels drivers, serve beverages to seniors as they come into the center, set tables, serve lunches and help clean up. Visit their website DQG Ă&#x20AC;QG WKH %HDYHUWRQ &HQWHU page for more information. This month they are hosting a Spring Tea. This event is especially for the ladies of Beaverton! While being served tea and catered food by men dressed in tuxedos, ladies will also enMR\ D IDVKLRQ VKRZ 7KH RXWĂ&#x20AC;WV have been provided by Sisters â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;N Style and will be modeled by senior volunteers. There will also be a few speakers, including a woman who will talk about what Meals and Wheels means to her and how the program has helped her stay in her home. The Spring Tea will be on Saturday, May 19, from 2 to 4 p.m. Hats and gloves are encouraged, but not necessary. Tickets are $20. Call 503-643-8352 to reserve your seat.

f you have driven down Canyon Rd in the last 62 years, no doubt you have driven by the iconic landmark that was originally home to Carr Chevrolet. The unique building was the brainchild of Mr. Guy Crockett Carr born in December 1901. Guy was born to John Wilborn Carr and Maybelle Gilmore in Telluride, Colorado on December 15,1901. When Guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents divorced in 1906, Guy moved to Galax, Virginia with his father and his younger brother Lee. Guys mother moved to Old Mexico with

her new husband, Otto Erickson. Guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of automobiles sparked when he went to work for Parkway Motor Car Company in 1916. He and a group of co-workers were assigned the task of going to Columbus, Ohio where they were to convoy trucks off the assembly line and drive them back to Washington, DC. Over time, Guy had lost contact with his mother. He found her through a friend in the Army through a series of typical questions as to where everybody is from. The boy was from a small

JoLynn Sirak: A Local Resident Making a Difference




elcome to our 4th installment of Beaverton Hero â&#x20AC;&#x201C; highlighting local Residents and ORFDOQRQSURĂ&#x20AC;WVZKRDUHPDNLQJ a difference whether locally or internationally. I would like to introduce our readers to a wonderful neighbor of mine, JoLynn 6LUDN , Ă&#x20AC;UVW PHW JoLynn when I was strolling the neighborhood with my family a few summers ago and came upon her garage sale in Murrayhill. She was raising funds to put together a team to go to Nicaragua to build schools in the smaller, rural communities. I remembered thinking what a great individual she was and how amazing that she was working towards making a difference in the world. I got a chance to sit down with JoLynn recently to learn more about how she got started and where she is now in her volunteer work. It all started 8 years ago when her family sponsored a child from Peru through Food for the Hungry ( The money that JoLynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fam-

ily sent was used for the smaller, rural communities to help build schools, pay for uniforms and school supplies. Soon JoLynn was writing letters with her sponsored child resulting in a trip to Peru where she had the incredible opportunity to meet her child face to face. She knew then that was the path that she should follow and formed a Volunteer Ministry with Food for the Hungry. In the summer of 2010, JoLynn met a friend who was very involved with building schools and improving communities in Nicaragua. She took her daughter and a team to Nicaragua on a mission to help build classrooms in their rural community. What was important for JoLynn was that she wanted her own kids, Savannah and Andrew to use their summer time â&#x20AC;&#x153;intentionallyâ&#x20AC;?. She saw an opportunity for her kids along with their friends , through Kids for Kids to promote activities that would raise money to build the schools, one classroom at a time.

About halfway through the meal, my daughter stared into her bowl of pasta and thoughtfully said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mama, this is my fave-oh-wit pawt.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that, honey?â&#x20AC;?

fter a 7-yr hiatus of getting paid to work during the day, I recently accepted a part-time job. There was much to weigh in this decision, the biggest factor being how it would change my ability to do the â&#x20AC;&#x153;momâ&#x20AC;? things I so enjoyed (and honestly, even those I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t). How would my relationship with my kiddos change? Would I ever see my husband again? AND WHO WAS GOING TO STOCK THE REFRIGERATOR???

Activities ranged from a cupcake sale, to a car wash, recycling soda cans, garage sales, selling Christmas wreaths as well as selling jewelry made from the women from the Nicaraguan villages. All the activities combined resulted in raising $11,795 for the Nicaraguan community. JoLynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story proves that one can make a difference and it can all start of as a small step.
