Public Safety Facility Update he Beaverton Police Department and the City’s Public Safety Center Advisory Committee will soon be kicking off a public awareness campaign to raise awareness about the need for a new public safety building. A recent survey showed that 57 percent of respondents were unaware of the issues facing our police, court, and emergency management team. “The fact is Beaverton is 120 years old and yet we’ve never had built a police station in our city,� said Beaverton’s Police Chief Geoff Spalding. “Our citizen’s committee has some very serious concerns about the safety and security of the City’s current building for police and court. We are convinced we need a building that is 100% up to current seismic standards and that is appropriately designed to keep prisoners and visitors to the building separated,� said Jim McCreight the


committee chair. The Mayor has directed staff to work on an awareness campaign. “We will be arranging speakers bureau events, tours of the police department, and talking with our community, to be sure that people know what we are facing. I want people to have an opportunity to learn about this important issue,� said Mayor Denny Doyle. For more information or to arrange a speaker or tour for your organization call the City at (503) 526-2658.


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 ďŹ rst edition in April of 2011 with the help of the city and the Beaverton Farmers Market. That ďŹ rst issue was 16 pages. Today, the paper is 32 pages and sponsored by a diverse cross section of public and private community organizations.


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 ďŹ rst visit nearby stores and give them a chance before moving on to businesses outside our community.

THPRD: connecting people, parks and nature Park District teams with BSD on future park site in Aloha by Bob Wayt, THPRD

unique partnership of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District and Beaverton School District – the ¿rst of its kind in a long history of cooperation between the two public agencies – will dramatically improve recreational facilities at Mountain View Middle School and lead to a longawaited community park in Aloha. As part of the agreement, THPRD will build a multipurpose athletic ¿eld complex at Mountain View, 17500 SW Farmington Road, Aloha. The complex will feature side-by-side synthetic turf ¿elds with lights, an adjoining ¿eld made of natural grass, and an overlapping baseball diamond with 90foot basepaths. THPRD and BSD will share use of the facilities, with the school district having access to them until 5:30 p.m. on school days and the Park District scheduling them for public recreation on evenings,


weekends and nonProposed Community Park Site - Aloha school days. BSD (Conceptual design only, pending master plan and public input) high school teams will have access to these new ¿elds for practices. Mt. View Middle School THPRD will also purchase about three acres of unused property from BSD on the south side of Mountain View. The $439,500 transaction is expected to close within the next few months. The partnership will enable THPRD to combine the athletic 1HZFRPPXQLW\SDUNERXQGDU\ ¿elds, the parcel to be purchased from BSD, a include play equipment, a perimeter separate adjoining trail, and picnic facilities. A parking lot, property acquired late last year, and restrooms and other improvements are nearby Lawndale Park to form a new also part of the design. community park spanning about 20 acres. It is unique in that ¿elds on BSD In addition, if private funding can be property will become part of a THPRD secured, a separate, smaller synthetic park. turf ¿eld will be established at the new Other amenities of the new park will community park and become Oregon’s

¿rst “Champions Too” sports facility for special needs athletes. The multipurpose ¿eld will be available for others in the community when not in use by special needs athletes. Most of the funding for the project will come from THPRD’s 2008 voter-approved bond measure.


Master planning for the park site is scheduled to begin this fall. The public will be given ample opportunity to provide input before a plan is completed. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2016.

1,500 ladybugs ladybugs get get new new home at Beaverton school 1,500 home at Beaverton school By FOX 12 Staff


ome children screamed and many giggled as dozens of students at one Beaverton school went outside for a hands-on Earth Day experience. The youngsters at Touchstone School learned about ladybugs in honor of Earth Day and then the kids got a chance to see the insects in action. More than 40 kindgarteners and preschool-aged children released 1,500 ladybugs at the school April 22. It was all part of a program to teach the children about nature, while also improving the health of local vegetation. Teachers placed the little ladybugs in the hands of the children. Some of them smiled and laughed, while others clearly weren’t as interested in playing with live insects. Still, plenty of students could be seen crisscrossing the playground in search of the nearest tree or bush to give the ladybugs a new home on the school’s playground. “This will hopefully teach them how to

Leading up to Earth Day, Touchstone students studied the importance of taking care of the planet. They learned about how ladybugs feed off aphids, also known as plant lice, as well as other insects that are harmful to trees, shrubs and gardens. “We talked to the kids about the lifecycle of the ladybug and what they do for our environment,” Hang said. Part of Touchstone School’s everyday curriculum is the importance of community and exploring nature at a young age. Touchstone School in Beaverton, 16180 S.W. Regatta Lane, is part of Nobel Learning Communities Inc., a national network of 180 private schools, including schools in Tigard and Lake Oswego.

s a Beaverton teen, there are often times when life gets a little slow causing the brain to stop thinking of new ideas for what to do and where to go. Even when I get together with my friends, the conversation can sometimes be the typical “soooo, whaddya wanna do?â€? “I donno, whadda you wanna do?â€? exchange. It starts in Spring when the weather starts to warm up and only gets worse during the Summer break when perhaps we have too much time on our hands. Well, that’s okay because I’m here to suggest a multitude of activities that to me are the perfect defense against any bout of boredom. School Sports First, let’s look at the easy stuff. We all go to high school and spring sports are well into their respective seasons. These include baseball, WUDFNDQGĹ…HOGDQGODFURVVH7KHVH events are not only inexpensive but it’s also great fun to cheer on your school’s team.

Spend Some Money By Springtime, I usually have a bit of allowance saved up through Winter so spending it on fun is always a good option. It’s a nice thing for us that Beaverton is home to places like Big Al’s, Malibu Raceway, Laserport, Wunderland, Sunset Lanes, John’s Incredible Pizza and more. Volunteer Curing boredom can also come in the form of community service like cleaning up a park or volunteering at an animal shelter or maybe the library. I know that deeds like these can make any day sweeter through helping others. Hey fellow teens! It would be a waste to lie around during these stunning spring days. How about going outside, visiting some fun businesses or making a difference in our community? As for me, I’m going to stop writing now and go plant some lilies. „

Get Outside Other ideas if you’re looking for a free way to have fun can be simple things like taking a walk in Brigid Fitzpatrick is a student the park or a bike ride with family at Southridge High School. or friends.

ur philosophy is to sell the best tasting produce at the best price. If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taste good, we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry it. We focus on local produce, highlighting Oregon and Washington product. If produce is not available locally, we buy the freshest produce from wherever itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in season. Produce is our familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. It has been for 3 generations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; since P\JUDQGIDWKHUEXLOWWKHĹ&#x2026;UVWSURduce wholesale warehouse in Portland. My wife and I chose to open Ruby Fresh Market here in Beaverton because of the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fantastic support of its farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market, which happens to be our concept but on a year-round basis. We also like the community's diverse ethnic mix. We see people from all over the world stop in to shop our produce. Everyone loves good, fresh produce. We carry many local products

in addition to our produce. Come in and choose from our exceptional selection of locally made foods- fresh pasta, sauces, artisanal cheeses, Oregon grass fed beef, coffee and tea, raw honey from Forest Grove, and Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Red Mill SURGXFWV<RXÄŁOOĹ&#x2026;QGDODUJHVHOHFtion of local craft beers to Belgian imports. We have a unique wine selection of over 100 bottles, ranging from the Northwest, old world, and South America. We approach our wine similar to our beer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ZHÄŁUHORRNLQJWRĹ&#x2026;QGWKHEHVWYDOue for the customer.

Starting May 11th, the opening of our Summer Season, we are changing all that with the launch of the new Sit-n-Stay dog sitting service provided by the good people at HomePlate Youth Services of Washington County.

eaverton's Saturday Farmer's Market has always been of interest to me. The vibrant colors RIWKHĹ&#x2020;RZHUVIUXLWV YHJHWDEOHV the smell of foods being cooked to order throughout the marketplace are hard to resist. The fun of tasting samples of cookies, breads, sauces, honeys, fruits; the excited children in wagons, strollers and on foot creates a festive setting. My eyes were drawn to the beautiful red of the tomatoes one day. Oh how they glistened in the

presentation we voted to endorse the 5-year levy that will add to our property taxes and restore teachers to the classrooms for 2013-2014 school year. While most of us do not look forward to paying higher property taxes, we do recognize that our students and teachers need our support. It is an investment in our future to have an educated population who can then work and support their families and possibly start new businesses as well. A strong school system creates a strong community, which then improves and helps the business community as well. WIN-WIN for all. I hope you will consider voting YES for OUR Beaverton Schools as well as taking time to vote for the candidates who have VOLUN-

If you have avocados that are still hard as baseballs, put them in a brown paper bag with some bananas and apples and leave out in room temperature. Bananas and apples help to release ethylene gas and that helps to quicken the ripening process. Do not limit yourself to paring JXDFDPROH WR MXVW +LVSDQLFVW\OH dishes.

oney Toast CafĂŠ rests elegantly on the corner of Farmington Road and Washington Street in downtown Beaverton. This appealing cafĂŠ has taken inspiration from Taiwanese street food. However, don't expect a typical Chinese restaurant here. Honey Toast CafĂŠ is everything but typical. Among the fascinating offerings are espresso, Bubble teas, 3DQLQL 6DOW  3HSSHU &KLFNHQ wings, fried tofu, sweet potato fries, and of course their signature dish: Honey Toast! This delectable dessert looks like a large, square piece of bread topped with ice cream and fruit. It's a creative take on toast that's similar to French toast, but not

purpose. It is a part of the larger Conscious Aging movement. During a Sage-ing course, participants uncover the blessings that comprise the rich fabric of their lives and discover how to transmit their wisdom to loved ones and to nurture them and the world we live in. Each class includes readings, meditation, ritual, UHĹ&#x2020;HFWLYH ZULWLQJ group process, and discussion. Groups generally meet 2 hours per week for 6 weeks. We do this with a spiritual orientation without connection to a particular religious belief or philosophy. The contents of a typical Sage-ing course include looking at Images of Ageing, Life Review, Life Repair, Life Completion, Leaving a Spiritual Legacy, and Becoming a Sage.

Courses are typically offered in community centers, private homes, retirement communities, and churches or synagogues. Out of those courses, many choose to start ongoing Wisdom Circles, which are part of the Sage-ingÂŽ movement.

designed to build earthquake proof structures, rather they help us build earthquake resistant structures. The intent is to build something that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t collapse on the occupants and will allow them to escape safely. For the most part, old fashioned building techniques simply relied on gravity to hold a house on its foundation, so the addition of anchor bolts through the sill plate into the concrete makes good sense. But, that only keeps the house from sliding off the foundation. Once the house is anchored in place, shear wall hold-down anchors should be attached at each corner. This will keep the house from being tipped over like an old outhouse on Halloween night. All post and beam construction under the house should be tied together to keep

the posts from coming off their piers and to prevent the beams from sliding off the posts. Gravity is great so long as all forces are straight down. But when the earth begins to pitch and roll and twist and heave, all bets are off for any parts of the house that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tied together. Now, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go back into the house and see what we should do in there to make things safer. If your water heater isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strapped to a nearby wall, it should be.

magine Possibilities is a facility with progressive programs for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is place for friendship, education, and activities outside of the family environment, serving Washington County and surrounding areas. Executive Director, Cathy Schaefer, states that she never feels like she is going to work. Her smile radiates her truth. Her late brother with a disability inspires her daily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People need an alternate to employment. We have programs for a wide range of needs for both children and adults. Recreational programs, summer camps, and volunteer opportunities to name a few. We also have a quiet house-

like setting for one-on-one care. We make a difference. Everyday is an opportunity for possibilities,â&#x20AC;? states Schaefer. Former board president, Mary Bennett's son has attended since 1982. Last year, Imagine Possibilities, purchased technology for Jason, who is unable to speak and had no formal means of communication. By touching customized pictures, an iPad speaks for him. Schaefer explains that since getting the technology, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jason has absolutely blossomed. He is doing things that at one time we only imagined he could do. We believe if you can imagine it, it is possible.â&#x20AC;? Â&#x201E; By Miranda Keenan
