from the editor

PUBLISHER Mary McFarland EDITORIAL DIRECTOR Mary McFarland

Dear Readers,

A

s the leaves fall and blow away, so does our fair fall weather. It’s time to batten down the hatches, close the foundation vents and settle in for another Idaho winter. We’re all hopeful for a milder winter than last year… only time will tell! Along with the beginning of fall comes election time. There are four candidates vying for two spots on the City Council. Craig Soelberg and Jeff Kunz did not sign up for re-election. Do your homework and vote wisely on November 7th. November 11th is Veteran’s Day, be sure to take time to thank a vet for their service. Also be sure to attend the annual Veteran’s Day parade in downtown Boise. I spent a week in Colorado with my three grandsons while Mark and Allie spent the week in the Dominican Republic. When she was booking the trip I suggested that we all go and I nanny. She advised me that would be a trip and she needed a vacation. I must say after a week of three squares a day I understand. It was a ton of work but also fun to have one on one with them. Now for my vacation! It’s always fun to put together the annual ski guide. We hope you find the information useful and get out to ski, snowboard or tube. Gateway is gearing up for another great season at Eagle Island. Bogus has made lots of changes this year including a mountain coaster, that’s a must do! Remember, this is the time to support the Eagle Food Bank with food and or cash donations. There are plenty of people in need right here in Eagle.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Below is a chart of the number of new home permits issued over the last 27 years. Revenues from 16/17 were $3,449,235, up from last year’s $2,749,440 and more than double from just five years ago! New home values for the year were $211,379,663, up more than $25 million from $186,642,649in 15/16. Eagle taxes remain low due to the huge bump in revenues from building permits. The estimated revenue was $2,000,000 but the actual revenues were just under $3,500,000. * Land values are not included in new building permit values. Fiscal Year

5 Polite Ways to Turn Down Food Here's what to say in any situation.

Most of us think that there are only two ways to handle Holiday food temptations. You could say "No" to everything and get the reputation of being a Grinch. Or you could say "Yes" to everything and end up gaining 5 or 10 pounds. Let's explore the following 5 ways to politely turn down Holiday food that's pushed on you by well-meaning friends and family.

Food Push #1: "This is your favorite! Hand me your plate." Stalling Response: "I can't wait to try some in a little bit."

unwanted item around your plate to make it look like you took a few bites.

Why stalling works: By not directly turning the food pusher down, they feel that they've won and will drop the subject. Later you may decide that you want a small portion of the offered food, or you may decide to skip it.

Why spreading it around works: You're not making a scene, and quite frankly, no one is going to notice. When food is put on your plate without your consent you are under no obligation to eat it. Spreading the food around is a simple way to defuse the situation without eating something you didn't want.

Food Push #2: "Try this new dessert I made, you'll love it!" I'm Stuffed Response: "I wish that I had saved some room, but I'm stuffed."

Food Push #5: "You are too concerned with dieting." Thank You for Noticing Response: "Thank you for noticing the healthy changes I've been making. Your support means a lot."

Why being stuffed works: No one can refute your statement about being full. If your food pusher is persistent then let them know that having one more bite would make you uncomfortably full to the point of pain.

Why saying thank you works: Sure, the dieting comment was probably made passive aggressively, but nothing is stopping you from taking it as a compliment. Seeing you make healthier choices may be intimidating for friends and family, so approach the subject with understanding rather than defensiveness.

Food Push #3: "I made this dish especially for you. Eat up!" Diet Restriction Response: "Oh man, that looks good! Too bad I can't eat gluten." Why having a diet restriction works: Even the pushiest people are likely to back off when they hear you have a diet restriction. The key is to be consistent. If you say that you aren't eating gluten then don't reach for a bread roll.

By warding off food pushers you'll eat fewer calories and will avoid holiday weight gain to start the New Year off right! Remember that exercise is a huge part of the equation when it comes to a healthy lifestyle. Call or email me today and we will get you started on the exercise program going in the right direction during the holidays.

Food Push #4: The food pusher puts something on your plate without permission. Spread It Around Response: Take your fork and spread the

Rake up all those leaves!

coneflower, hosta, salvia, and coreopsis. Prune back summer blooming plants like Rose of Sharon and Butterfly Bush, and give other non blooming plants a haircut. If you are unsure, come see us with your questions.

don't cut them back in the fall. Trim back the spent flower heads back about two leaf buds. These new sun loving Hydrangeas bloom on old wood so if you want to have big, beautiful plants, covered in blooms, just clean off the spent flowers. Plan to save some of the blooms for your fall wreath and holiday decorating. Water hydrangeas (both sun & shade loving) in well.

(Cover up to 8 inches of the canes.) Make sure to hand water roses and all of your plants one more time before our winter freezes the ground.

6) Spray broadleaf evergreens with an anti-dessiccant (wilt
