Letting Go By Jane Meyers


livia let go. She let go of the idea that she had to keep her marriage intact. That was hard. She let go of the idea that she could insulate her children from any hurt that her actions (or non actions) might cause. That was harder. And she let go of trying to control her image. That was the hardest. If you had asked Olivia at the time, she would have said protecting her children from hurt was her paramount concern. But as she stayed in the process and realized they would suffer no matter what she chose, she realized she had to focus on doing what was right for her. Olivia chose to believe that we are all connected so an action that is in our own highest interest is somehow beneficial to all those with whom we are linked. What she didn’t see coming was the cost of actions intended to bring forth her authentic self. The price was her public image. The reason we seldom see this cost in the fine print of our selfgrowth contracts is because we don’t normally realize that we have a public image. But we all do—and they matter to us. Think about the times that we get most hurt or insulted. Usually it’s because someone has accused us of some quality we judge as wrong. More often than not, there’s a subconscious suspicion that in fact we might be like that. So like all of us, Olivia had a public image. The number one quality in that image description was Good Mom. She prided herself on having stayed home to raise her children for as many years as the couple could afford. She baked the cupcakes, drove the carpools and read the stories. She raised well-behaved, intelligent, thoughtful children. She made sure they did their homework, played soccer and helped others in need. All her friends admired her mothering skills. In everyone’s mind, this is who Olivia was. So when word got out that Olivia was contemplating divorce, there was an uproar in her circle. She was not allowed, in the mind of her friends, to take this action because it violated her public image. But they were not necessarily aware of why their reactions were so strong. They just focused on how what she was doing was wrong. And they told her so. Soon she was facing a steely wall of self-righteous estrogen. She would either step away from this renegade position or lose her support network. It’s easy to act horrified and judge these women but the truth was they showed up that way because they reflected Olivia’s own self judgment. She was the one who had written the job description for her own self-image and then failed to live up to those standards. Not to imply that she should have lived up to them. Whenever we experience judgment from others and it hurts, it’s because something in us feels it’s deserved. In contrast if someone were to accuse us of something that had no connection to our truth (like “Your problem is you’re plaid!”) it would seem either ridiculous or confusing, but

not hurtful. We wouldn’t identify. These “friends” were unconsciously serving Olivia, offering her the opportunity to scrape that superficial image off the painting of her essence. On the other side of the judging equation is the fact that whatever we judge, especially with strong emotion, is so abhorrent to us because it reflects something inside of our own selves. There’s a book titled “What You Think of Me is None of My Business.” Other people’s judgments say something about them, not us. Olivia got a ringside seat at this judge-fest. Why was she changing? The friends all had their own theories….which were somehow about them, not her. Some accused her of being self-centered. Others were convinced she was having an affair. Some believed Satan had her in his grip. Others claimed she was having a mental breakdown. None of these accusations were true. Like the caterpillar that must relinquish the body and the life it has known to morph into a butterfly, Olivia was growing and changing and the relationship was no longer right for her. Olivia learned a lot about judgment as she went through this process. She humbly acknowledged that she had been very judgmental herself and set out to correct this tendency. While it hurt her to lose friendships that had once been important, she realized it was more valuable to accept herself as she was and allow the people in her life to exit if they couldn’t let her grow. Olivia was fortunate in that she has people in her life that don’t require her to wear the face of an artificial outgrown self. They celebrate her self-discovery and becoming. Other people going through this transition are not always that lucky. It can be a lonely road. We would all do well to trust each other’s inner wisdom and give the gift of love without backseat driving about the choices others make as we all do our best to navigate through life.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, I was astonished when I read the articles recounting Olivia’s journey to the woman she will become. You could have been writing about ME! Although our ages, locations, experiences, family expectations and differing social environments would seem to deny any possibility of commonality, I feel a strong kinship with this woman.

Erin Miller Driver

Change is not easy; growth requires real work and I know, through personal experience, that this passage of self-discovery is initially very painful. The reward comes later, but with work, is attainable. My need for growth and development meant leaving a nineteenyear marriage. The censure of the small community in which I lived was hurtful and I quickly found out who my friends really were. Learning to love myself and work my way through the maelstrom of conflicting judgments and expectations gave me new strength and clarity. What truly amazed me at the time and has been driven home repeatedly, is that Olivia’s story is the tale of many, many women. Some have taken the initiative to make change happen, either within or outside of a marriage. There are women who are not entirely happy, would like to make changes but lack the strength to reach out and risk the unknown. These women all need support in whatever decisions they have to make. Tell Olivia that she CAN make the changes she wants, her judgment of herself is the only one that counts and that support for her growth comes from all of us who have made this journey before her. The only way out of this is through it. Olivia, keep your eyes fixed on that clearer, brighter life that you will reach through your courage and hard work.

E our health V o L Adult Acne by: Clare A Nordhus, Licensed Esthetician


aybe you had acne as a teenager and it never went away or you are experiencing your first encounter with breakouts as an adult. Whatever the story, adult acne in men and women is a frustrating problem and can be emotionally and socially debilitating. When breakouts appear, most people head straight to the drug store and grab what they used as a teenager. A word of caution, unless your skin is super oily, stay away from skin care products marketed towards teens. Teen acne is typically triggered by over productive sebaceous glands and products developed to help control oil production are to harsh and drying for adult skin. Fortunately, there are an array of alternative skin care products that are very effective for adult acne and with a little time and proper care, adult acne can be successfully treated. There are many reasons on why we breakout and what causes acne. What works on treating acne for one person will not be the same for another. First, make sure what you are experiencing is really acne and find out the proper steps to take and the right products to use. Misuse of product or self diagnosing can cause more damage then good and end up costing more money in the long run. If you are unsure of what is happening with your skin, a visit to a skin care expert, someone who specializes in acne, can identify what is going on and guide you in the right direction.

your skin clean but, not felling tight, dry, itchy or red. And, always be gentle when dealing with the facial, neck and chest skin. Treat it like delicate baby skin. Being to rough will irritate acne and can cause capillary breakage, leaving permanent damage. If you are confused on the right products for your skin consult with a trusted skin care expert. Using the correct products makes a world of difference in the health of you skin and clearing up acne. Another important step in achieving and keeping clear skin is through exfoliation. It is a must have for combatting acne. Not only will the right exfoliation treatments help stop breakouts but, the texture of your skin will dramatically improve. First, I want to say... Acne CANNOT be scrubbed away or dried out. Scrubs are to harsh and will exacerbate your breakout so, put them away until everything is calm. Exfoliants that contain non abrasive exfoliating agents is the way to go for home use and professional treatments. They are gentler and much more effective at removing dead skin cells and improving the complexion. When preforming exfoliating treatments at home always check in with your skin care expert to find out what you should use and how often it should be applied. Some common non abrasive exfoliants are: •

Natural Enzymes: papian (papaya), bromalian (pineapple) and trypisin. They dissolve keratin (protein in skin) and each has it ability to work with one protein so together the will breaking down a different protein....... ?????

AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) are naturally occurring molecules found in milk and fruit and have been used for centuries. Glycolic and Lactic are the most common AHA’s and soften the skin by loosening the glue bonds that hold dead skin cells together and sloughs them away. AHA’s will also help correct problems of dehydration, lighten PIH (post, inflammatory hyper pigmentation) and smooth the skin. PIH is the residual marks left on your skin after picking or scratching at an acne lesion. They range in color from pink to purple and are often confused for a scar. Regular exfoliation and proper moisture will fade them very quickly.

BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid): Salicylic acid is helpful in treating inflamed acne on oily to normal skin types. It has the ability to penetrate into the follicle and encourages shedding of dead skin cells from within, fighting infection and purging debris out.

There are two alternatives when seeking professional guidance and treatment for acne, though an Esthetician or Dermatologist. Both have their place in treating the skin. Dermatology prescribes medication, topically and orally, and covers severe cystic/nodule acne and major skin diseases and cosmetic injectables. Estheticians treat topically only, healing the skin naturally without prescription medication. An acne treatment with an Esthetician last 60 - 70 min and consist of: •

A thorough skin analysis which involves a careful assessment of the condition of you skin, taking into account any determining factors that may be contributing to your skin’s health. Examples are, medical conditions, skin type, history of sun exposure, seasonal or hormonal shifts and the products used in your daily skin care routine.

A deep cleanse and professional exfoliation of the skin.

A facial massage which increases circulation, enhancing oxygen flow and nutrients to the surface of the skin and softening the skin preparing it for extractions.

Extracting existing acne impactions, removing debris from the follicle. This helps control the spread of infection and helps prevent scarring.

A treatment mask is then applied to the skin rebalancing the pH, calming the tissue and infusing the skin beneficial ingredients.

Depending on the severity of your acne will determine the treatment protocol that is prescribed at your first appointment. When seeking help from an Esthetician, it is important in the beginning to come in frequently to get everything under control. Within 6 weeks of treatments you will see notable improvement. For at home care, the backbone of your skin care routine has to be a good cleansing and keeping the skin properly moisturized. The right cleanser will not strip the skin of its natural, protective oils. It will leave

Another form of exfoliation is microdermabrasion. It is superior at retexturing the surface of the skin. Once inflammation and open sores have healed, microdermabrasion can be the next step in smoothing the skin, helping with minor acne scars and lightening PIH (post inflammatory hyper pigmentation) Everyone can have clear, healthy skin and it will happen quicker and easier then what you think. Acne can be controlled and feeling confident and beautiful or handsome can be yours! Clare A. Nordhus, is a Licensed Esthetician in the State of Oregon.

Deadly Illusions By Jane Meyers

In Sanskrit, the word Maya refers to illusion. Maya is also a Hindu deity that governs the illusion that physical reality is separate from mental reality. We humans excel in subscribing to various illusions. We believe that if we are rich all our problems will be solved. We believe there is one love out there (usually not the person we live with) that can fulfill all our needs. We believe that we can guzzle an infinite amount of caffeine and sugar without penalty. We believe that we can withhold forgiveness because the culprit doesn’t deserve it. These are just a few examples of deadly illusions we hold. But this month, I want to focus on one particularly deadly illusion. Tobacco use can relax us and relieve our stress. This is not only a lethal illusion –tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States—but a popular one. 45 million people in the US are still smoking cigarettes. Besides that figure, there are cigar and pipe smokers and tobacco chewers. November 15 marks the 37th anniversary of the Great American SmokeOut, when the American Cancer Society encourages folks suffering under this illusion to quit for the day, with the hope it will be the first day of the rest of their healthier lives. I would encourage people to do this, or at least make a plan on how they will do it. However at least half of those smokers and chewers have already tried to quit, with some having actually quit—or, more accurately, paused, sometimes for years at a time. Yet something lures them back. I have yet to meet a tobacco user under the illusion that the habit is healthy. But they do believe it relieves their stress. Many parents will tell me that they use their smoking break to go outside and get 5 minutes peace from their kids. They don’t want their kids to smoke, of course, and are under the illusion that the kids will do what they say and not what they do. Many people smoke because if they stop, they believe they will gain weight. This may be true. If it happens, this is primarily because the person manages stress orally and so they have to put something in their mouths. Some people use their smoking break as a way to escape from something unpleasant— conflict, yelling, boredom, overwhelm—having to do something or be somewhere that they don’t like but feel stuck doing or being. Some people smoke because the habit has gotten hardwired to another activity like drinking alcohol or coffee, eating a meal, waking up, or being in social situations.

What happens? You fall flat, of course. You need to know what support you’ll use instead. When I mention motivation, I find that health is usually not enough because everyone already knows tobacco is bad for health. People make lasting chances for reasons like wanting to see their grandchildren, get more healthy relationships, qualify for a career, or be there for their children. When it comes to quitting strategies, there is a free program and support group led by Anne Palmer at BMC. Call 541-317-4506 for an appointment. My personal favorite strategy is hypnosis. I have had great success with this approach, and have found 100% efficacy when it’s combined with acupuncture. The reason hypnosis works is that it operates on the subconscious level, the part of your mind that is really controlling your actions. When we do a session together, your motivation can be portrayed in vivid terms so you can really get how important this step is to you and reprogram the internal messages. Just like when you want to make a change in a document, you have to change it on the computer, if you want a change in your behavior, you have to change your mind. Especially in honor of the Great American SmokeOut, I would love to help you make that change! Jane Meyers, owner of Positive Life Connections, is a hypnotherapist who has been in practice in Central Oregon for 20 years and has helped many people kick the tobacco habit. She is also the minister at Unity Community of Central Oregon.

In order to quit using tobacco for good, smokers need to take 5 steps. •

Recognize the deadly illusion that it can meet the need for peace and calm.

Identify the specific situations that seem to mandate tobacco use.

Find a new way to manage the anxiety that tobacco seems to relieve.

Find a personal motivation, other than health, that can be wired to quitting.

Pick a strategy to stop smoking.

It’s critical to know what situations prompt you to smoke and then have a replacement strategy. Otherwise it’s like you are using a crutch because you believe you can’t walk and then someone yanks it away.

Because Connection Matters

Are You The Mom of A Spiritually Gifted Child? by Alison Elsberry, OTR/L

As our world continues to change and transform, have you ever thought to ask yourself a simple question: “Are there special souls sent here to help us through these ever-changing times?” Well, the answer is YES! And your child may be one of those very special beings here to share an important message. How Do You Know If Your Child Is Spiritually Gifted? Much discussion has gained attention in the past 5-10 years about Indigo, Rainbow and Crystal Children. These are soul groups with particular gifts and energies for helping our world be a more peaceful place to live. In recent years, the terms highly sensitive or energetically sensitive kids has also been used to describe these special children. The term “spiritually gifted” supports seeing your child as a true gift from Spirit. They are blessed with special gifts meant to be expressed by embracing their divine mission along their life path.

Simply acknowledging your child for the blessed being they are is such an important first step in understanding the divine nature of your child’s gifts. When your child feels seen, it gives them a deep sense of acceptance. They feel much safer to express themselves because they are supported in their truth. And your support empowers their divine essence. Your ability to respond with love and compassion is what your child craves most. They want you to show up and be present in the moment. So they feel supported by your guiding light. This gives both of you the freedom to be who you came here to be. You don’t have to know all the answers or try to figure everything out! So let go of your expectations. Set down your worries and fears. Take a breath. Open your heart. Allow your light to shine, like sunlight in a garden. And watch the magic happen… And it’s OK to feel like a mess of a Mom along the way. It’s all part of your journey in becoming graceful support for you and your child. Alison Elsberry, OTR/L blends various spiritual healing techniques to support Moms in empowering their spiritually gifted children. Visit to learn how she can help you ease into your highest vision of Motherhood.

Many spiritually gifted kids display similar characteristics such as: •

difficulty processing sensory information (i.e. hyper or hyposensitive to environmental surroundings such as sights, smells, sounds and movements)

sensitive to other peoples’ emotions and energy

difficulty making friends or is friends with everyone

“sees” beyond the physical plane

communicates with spirit guides, angels, beings, etc... beyond our veil

fascination with “otherworldly” objects such as angels, faeries, magic, outer space, etc…

highly intelligent, but may struggle in school


highly creative and passionate

recalls past life experiences at a young age

speaks wisdom far beyond his/her years

intuitive – seems to just “know” things

difficulty with rules, may seem strong-willed

There’s a “special something” about these kids. And everyone senses it. Maybe they stand out in their class for being compassionate. Or perhaps they share hugs with strangers or have brilliant ideas to improve society. Maybe they even sparkle too! And keep in mind the above list isn’t all-inclusive. There are many more possibilities in which spiritually gifted children express themselves. How Can You Support Your Child In Embracing Their Gifts? First of all, Congratulations! You are the Mom of a spiritually gifted child! Perfectly chosen to nurture their gifts.

How To Protect Your Children From Bullies by Anna Thedford, M.A., LPCI, Child and Family Therapist We can all remember a time in our youth where we were witness to bullying. Maybe you as the reader are a survivor of being bullied as a child. For some being bullied can cause deep scars that we carry into our adult years. In fact, when someone mentions the bullies name 2030 years later those memories may come rushing back. Before we go any further let’s define what bullying is in relation to school aged children. The definition of bullying by the U.S. Department of Human Services, “Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems”. Children are vulnerable to lasting problems because they are still developing their sense of self. If bullying begins this can create and form a negative sense of self through the powerful negative messages the child is receiving. The good news is if the right steps are taken as soon as we know a child is being bullied the serious lasting problems can be prevented. If a child has been the survivor of serious bullying I recommend seeing a professional counselor that specializes in working with children, who can help the child tell their story in a way that brings healing and closure to difficult memories. Tips for kids on bullying• Don’t fuel the fire. This means do not give the bully a big emotional reaction, that is what they want you to do and they will continue to tease if they continue to get a big reaction. • Ignore and walk away if you can. • Use a firm strong voice, feet firmly planted to the ground, standing tall, eye contact, and tell them to “STOP”. You may even give them a warning that you are going to report them bullying if they do not stop. • If it still continues after these top 3 tips, tell a trusted adult and keep telling adults until you find one that listens to you. It is not your fault and you do not deserve to be treated that way. Tips for parents on bullying• Listen to your child if they feel they are being bullied. • If it is happening with someone from their school contact the school immediately. • Principals are very busy, so do not be afraid to call and follow up if they have forgotten to keep you in the loop on how the issue was resolved. • Ask the principal what the schools anti-bullying policy is and what is the next course of action if the bullying happens again. The truth is your child might not come to you first or at all about being bullied. Especially the older your child gets the more complicated and secretive the bullying becomes. It does not mean you are a bad parent. It does probably mean the bully has had a lot of power over your child’s actions where they feel ashamed and embarrassed. Praise them for being so brave and strong through their experience. Also, let them know you will support them and make sure they feel safe again by being their advocate. Every child and adolescent has the right to feel safe, accepted, and free from bullying.

Professor Child Introduces “Siblings and Autism” By Rory Kidder Bend business, Professor Child, will soon release their second film, Siblings and Autism. “We knew we wanted to do a film on the topic of Autism, but initially we weren’t sure of the direction this film would take,” shared Sharon Richards, Professor Child co-founder. After extensive research with local autism specialists, it became very evident there is limited support and resources for the siblings of kids with ASD. “With 1 in 88 children being diagnosed with ASD, we wanted to hear the siblings’ perspective,” shared Jenni O’Keefe, Professor Child co-founder. Professor Child develops educational tools for children, in which children teach children about challenging events that may arise in a child’s life. “We believe that children have a powerful voice that is relatable, healing and hopeful. Ultimately, we want children to know they are not alone in what they are experiencing and that much can be learned by simply listening to another child’s story,” shared Rory Kidder, Professor Child co-founder. In Siblings and Autism, nine brave children come forward to share their personal stories. Ranging in age from 7 to 16, the children and teenagers share what ASD means to them, what their experience has taught them, what has helped, how it has affected their friendships, and much more. Sharon Richards, a Licensed Social Worker and Professor Child co-founder, had this to say, “We thought we knew what the children might say in their interviews. We were wrong. As we watched these nine children share their stories, we became the students and they became our professors.” On the day of filming, all of the film participants spent the day together, which became a very meaningful event in itself. As their stories were filmed, they had an opportunity to get to know one another. For the first time, they were able to discuss their own personal experiences with a sympathetic and supportive peer group. “It was apparent to us that even though all the children had gone through hard times with their siblings, it has only made them stronger and more compassionate towards others,” said Jenni O’Keefe. Lauren, a participant in Siblings and Autism, wrote the following poem. My smile says I’m happy, but my brain says I’m sad Inside I want to be calm, but my face says I’m mad I’m no perfect human as nobody will be But I’m still perfect at being me At first glance it seems I’m an open book But you’ll find I have secrets where no one can look When I write my thoughts they’re for all to see But the only one who understands them is me I whisper when I’m quiet I yell when I am loud Of all the things I am, I am me and I’m proud. To find more information about Siblings and Autism and Professor Child, please visit For information about a local Sibling Support Group, please contact Amanda K. Hamer, MS, NCC, LPCI, at Amanda is facilitating a Saturday Sibling Support Group created just for brothers and sisters, ages 5-18, of children experiencing diverse needs.

Sleep, Nutrition, and Guidelines for Healing Injuries

sleep but think about how physically active these kids at this age and the incidence of injury increases with fatigue. So let’s switch gears and talk about the treatment of simple bruises and injuries, these happen at any age. Bruises are from a break in a blood vessel wall that allows the blood to escape into the skin. There may be swelling and localized pain. Bruises are usually blue or purple and change to brown and yellow as they heal. Healing of a bruise may be 10 days on average. There are some factors that effect how much we bruise and the healing time. Some drugs and medications may cause the increase in bruises. Foods that help increase or speed up the healing time of bruises, strain and sprains are foods high in Vitamin C or A such as lemons, oranges, grapefruit as well as peppers, carrots, squash cantaloupe. You can also supplement with an oral vitamin with Vitamin C, A and a B complex, Vitamin E, selenium, zinc and bioflavinoids also are essential for healing. Also helpful for bruises, are cold compresses (ice) for the first 24 hours will decrease the internal bleeding then heat may be helpful after the first 24 hours to bring blood flow to the area to be healed. This rule of thumb is good for sprains and strains as well. I also use a lot of arnica topically in a gel or cream and then internally as a homeopathic remedy such as the brand Borion at potency 30C, this can be purchased at a health food store. With any injury, I almost immediately give Rescue Remedy, which is a Bach Flower Remedy that helps with everything from mental anxiety to physical traumas this can also be purchased at a health food store as well.

By Dr. Michelle K. Jackson As a parent of 4 boys ages 10 down to 3, I am familiar with the local Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care facilities. We have been there several times- trampoline injuries (who doesn’t have a trampoline injury story) and occasional mishaps. So I am often asked what we do at home to prevent injuries and heal from them. I have several general guidelines and remedies in the home first aid kit that I can’t imagine living without and would I like to share them with the hopes that they help keep your family too. First of all, good old common sense of eating right and getting enough rest goes very far with preventing injuries and helping your body heal faster. Proper nutrition will help the body to heal faster. The vitamins and minerals in “real food”- meaning foods that are as unprocessed as possible- fruits, vegetables, grains, meats that are closest to their natural form are full of the vitamins and minerals that you need to heal faster.

Finally proper hydration also can help keep everyone healthy and help us heal faster. Kids as well as adults should be drinking half their body weight in ounces of water per day. So a 60-pound child should be drinking 30 ounces of water per day. And that is just water- NOT including juice, milk or other drinks. Nothing is better advice then an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and that always includes rest, nutrition, and hydration for injury prevention and healing. Dr. Michelle Jackson is a local Naturopathic Physician. She can be reached at 541-385-0775.

Getting enough sleep and resting is so important too. During deep REM sleep is when the body heals the most. As for general sleep guidelines for 1-3 years old children: 12 - 14 hours of sleep per day in overnight sleep and naps in various combinations. As your child moves past the first year toward 18-21 months of age he/she will likely lose his morning nap and nap only once a day. While toddlers need up to 14 hours a day of sleep, on average they typically get only about 10. Most children from about 21 to 36 months of age still need one nap a day, which may range from one to three and a half hours long and then make the rest up at night, typically go to bed between 7 and 9 p.m. and wake up between 6 and 8 a.m. 3-6 year old children need 10 - 12 hours of sleep per day. Children at this age typically go to bed between 7 and 9 p.m. and wake up around 6 and 8 a.m., just as they did when they were younger. At 3, most children are still napping, while at 5, and most are not. Naps gradually become shorter as well. 7-12 year old children need 10 - 11 hours per day. At these ages, with social, school, and family activities, bedtimes gradually become later and later, with most 12-years-olds going to bed at about 9 p.m. There is still a wide range of bedtimes, from 7:30 to 10 p.m., as well as total sleep times, from 9 to 12 hours, although the average is only about 9 hours but in order to stay healthy and focused 10-11 hours is best. Finally, in the 12-18 years Olds: 8 - 9 hours per day are needed. Sleep needs remain just as vital to health and well being for teenagers as when they were younger. It turns out that many teenagers actually may need more sleep than in previous years. Now, however, social pressures conspire against getting the proper amount and quality of

The Gift of Charity by Kristy Krugh Executive Director, Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Oregon. I bear witness to lessons in Charity as parents bring their children to the Bend Ronald McDonald House® to prepare a meal for guests, or even to bring their most prized possessions—like their Halloween candy or favorite toy—to offer to families in need. In a time when the holidays are commercialized & often more about receiving than giving, we have the opportunity to learn about the needs of our local community & work to fill them. Cash gifts are always tax-deductible to 501(c)(3) organizations and greatly appreciated by the receiving nonprofit, no matter the amount. The organization can even send an acknowledgement to the individual you’re honoring with the gift. Gifts of new or very gently loved toys, housewares & clothing

are accepted by many local nonprofits. Many have a “wishlist” that will tell you exactly what to buy. You can call an organization for this information or find it on their website. Sometimes the most unexpected items needed most. For example, holiday floral arrangements can even be repurposed by Friends with Flowers of Central Oregon. Get the whole family involved by working together to select a single organization or a cause to support: children & families, Veterans, animals, housing, domestic violence prevention, the elderly, etc. If you want to affect many organizations at once, consider a gift to the Deschutes Children’s Foundation or the United Way. Volunteering can be a great bonding & learning experience for everyone. Visit www. for opportunities in your community this Holiday Season.

Junior ROTC by Annette Perry As we prepare to honor our military veterans for their service and sacrifices with annual Veteran’s Day celebrations, there is a group of young –very young –men and women who are learning valuable life skills while providing service to our community. The Redmond High School’s Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps, more commonly called the JROTC is a group of approximately 70 students called cadets, who chose to take elective classes structured in a psyudo-military fashion. (This program, however, does not focus on recruitment into the armed forces).“ Primarily the classes are leadership based, teaching conflict resolution, communication, confidence, and especially ownership of who you are in your community,” said MGy Sgt. Michael Trammel, who teaches and leads the cadets through a core of classes, such as Health and Fitness, that he says are designed to “build skills to be productive members of society.” He explained that a current project has the cadets producing their own newsletter, “where they learn writing skills, spelling, communication, and researching techniques.”

group has been invited to present a small production at the opening of each of the ballet performances. Artistic Director and COSB owner, Zygmunt Sawiel, personally invited the cadets to perform. “We work hard. They work hard,” he said. “I think the community would enjoy to see what their program offers.” MCL representative Art Edgren said the group also has been asked to head up the Redmond Toys for Tots campaign, explaining that the cadets will deliver boxes, and pick up and sort toys, among other duties. “We have had the honor to work side by side with these young people,” said Perry. “ We are proud to partner with such a dedicated and disciplined group of Central Oregon Youth.

w w w. rg a g y m n a s t i c s . c o m

The group is gearing up for one community service/fund-raiser that some would call an odd match. On December 1 & 2, the cadets will don their dress blues and provide usher services for the Central Oregon School of Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker Ballet. This is the fourth year the group has participated. Business Administrator, Annette Perry said that COSB was looking for a group that would be a “good fit for the long-time family tradition.” A decision was made to partner with the Marine Corps League’s Toys for Tots program, and along with that an idea to invite the Redmond JROTC to help with seating. “We had high hopes that the group would be able to offer a professional atmosphere—helping to seat patrons, monitor the auditorium, and even provide curb-side service for patrons needing assistance to and from their cars. They exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds!” MGy Sgt. Trammel and Perry agree that it seems like an odd pairing. “Boys don’t normally want to go see a ballet,” stated Trammel. But he went on to add that the event has given his cadets a different perspective. “It is a cultural thing,” he explained. “When we host or travel to an event, the cadets can draw from the experience. They look back at the ballet and remember the time and effort, the planning, the personal cues, the steps between the event for the whole production, and they see they are intertwined. They have a greater understanding of what it takes to have a successful production.” And their dedication and commitment has paid off. This year the

Pets Play Pivotal Role for Seniors by Jodi Schneider McNamee

Older adults can suffer from depression, isolation and loneliness, especially when making a transition from the comforting home they have lived in for many years to a new retirement community. Many of these seniors have made an emotional connection to a pet they still are caring for. Residents of Aspen Ridge Retirement Community in Bend are able to bring their loving pets with them to their new home. Pets brighten the lives of those who are anxious, lonely or depressed. They provide routine and a sense of responsibility. The physical contact is soothing and calming; and researchers have found that interacting with pets lowers humans’ blood pressure and pulse rate. Pets also provide a feeling of safety for those living alone, and decrease feelings of isolation. “Sometimes Kitkat pats me on the nose in the middle of the night, I don’t mind; it gives me comfort to know I’m not alone,” said Dorothy Chambless. “I don’t know what I’d do without my cat.”

Healthy Adventures Await you with Dr. Lauren Stayer, Dr. Robben Jones, Dr. Byron Maas and Dr. Megan Kinnear. Now Open Saturdays 9-4 pm

A warm cat on their lap or a dog that is filled with joy upon their returning home can be therapeutic to the soul. “My cats Princess and Ginger are my family, the closest things I have to grandkids,” said Donna Rutherford. “When I come home after a long Bunko game, they are there to greet me.” Pets can help older adults by supplying companionship and affection. They divert your mind from your troubles, and they can make you laugh. “She’s my company and someone to talk to, it feels good to pet her,” said Sylvia Schliep, referring to her cat, LilBit . “She gives me pleasure; she comes by me and meows when it’s time to go to bed.” Aspen Ridge Retirement Community has been a part of Bend for 12 years. They have been pet friendly since the beginning. “Pets give the residents companionship when they are in their apartment alone,” said Aspen Ridge Administrator Joan Ziebell. “They’re also good for social interaction between residents,” Joan added. Older adults within a retirement community often feel more social when in the presence of animals, and therefore many venture outdoors for a walk or play with their pet. This social networking enables the individual to feel less consumed with themselves and more interested in the world around them. Pets keep seniors more active in the community. Researchers are finding that the most serious disease for older adults is not cancer or heart disease; it’s loneliness. Love is the most important health tonic we have, and pets offer us unconditional love, which is a significant benefit to our overall wellbeing.

Bed bugs—part 1 by Glenn Bissell, Owner of Alpine Pest Management


he resurgence of bed bugs as a pest problem in the US began in the 1990s in the northeastern corner of the US. Bed bugs became a significant pest management issue in some of the largest East Coast cities at about that time.

Bed bugs have arrived in Central Oregon in hospitality businesses and some residences in recent years. We have been involved in bed bug problems in homes and rental units for the last five years. This year, we have inspected and treated rental properties and residences. A few hotels in the area have also recently experienced bed bug problems. Bed bugs are human parasites. They feed almost exclusively on humans and travel from place to place by human transportation -- either on human bodies or human belongings such as luggage, clothing, bedding etc. They have been found on many types of public transportation including airlines, trains and busses. Bed bugs have been associated with humans throughout history. Some scientists speculate that the human bed bug evolved from the bat bug during the stone age of the caveman -- when bats roosted on the ceilings of caves and humans lived below them. Other scientists believe it started much later in time. There are records of bed bugs feeding on Egyptians, Greeks and Romans a few thousand years ago. Bed bugs spread from the Middle East and the Mediterranean area up into Central Europe in the 11th century, into England by the 16th century and into the Scandinavian countries by the 19th century. Bed bugs were first introduced into the Americas by the colonists. Severe bed bug infestations were documented in the English colonies in the 18th century. By the 20th century, it was a rare American who hadn’t either been bitten by or at least seen a bed bug. (From: Bed Bug Handbook, L. J. Pinto, R. Cooper and S. K. Kraft; 2007). I was introduced to bed bugs in college by my medical entomology professor in the early 1970s. At that time, my professor said that bed bugs weren’t currently a problem, but we would probably see them become a problem again in 30 to 40 years. His prediction was right on. No one is sure why the developed countries, including the US, were spared from bed bug problems throughout the mid 20th century. It has been speculated that it may have been because of DDT and the organophosphate pesticides that were used beginning in the 1940s, right after WW II and continuing through the late 1980s. All DDT use in the US was cancelled by the EPA in 1973 and the organophosphate insecticides were phased out beginning in the 1990s. One of the reasons why bed bugs are now a problem may be that many bed bug strains are resistant to our largest current arsenal of pesticides called synthetic pyrethroids.

I will continue this article in the next issue of LoVE and will cover the lifecycle, prevention, detection, and treatment methods for bed bugs. Please call the Alpine Pest Management office at 541-389-4942, contact me at or visit our website at for more information.

The Exciting Advantages of Vertical Gardening by Ryan Rudloff Have you noticed those tree-like vertical gardens around town? Maybe you saw one at one at a trade-show over the summer when you were taking the family downtown on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Maybe you saw one at a neighbor’s house while driving by on the way to work. Or maybe you saw one at a business you frequent. Those tree-like garden towers, have generated an exciting amount of buzz over the past six months. Gardeners know all too well, the growing season in Central Oregon is more often than not a heartbreaking experience. But some newage thinking and a product introduction to the area is giving greenthumbs, or any-color thumbs for that matter, an opportunity for a full growing cycle. And, yes that includes the harvest period too! Every August, gardeners check the nightly forecast in anticipation of that dreaded first freeze. When that time comes, a decision must be made. “Do I chance it, and throw some sheets over the garden? Or do I throw the towel in, and harvest before reaping the rewards from my several months of hard, disciplined work?”

Juicers know the financial commitment that comes with the territory of getting that all-mighty green drink in every morning. What if the monthly cost of that daily power smoothie could be cut in half? Or better yet, practically eliminated? Locavores everywhere know the value of fresh grown produce. Yet it comes at a hefty price. The time pledge, the financial commitment and of course, the crossing of the fingers during those chilly shoulderseason nights present the ultimate challenge for all of us including those that have earned the prestigious title, Master Gardener. Yet with a vertical garden on wheels, your basil and dill can dodge fifty plus degree daily temperature fluctuations, you can grow your favorite salsa recipe knowing there won’t be any backbreaking weeding or tilling; you can have a garden that features your desired cucumber or zucchini plants getting water and nutrients whether you are around or not; thanks to the water pump that runs on an automatic timer. And best of all, you get ALL the control with your vertical garden. No GMO, no problem. No herbicides or pesticides used to grow your dinner salad: check. The benefit of allowing your strawberries or tomatoes to ripen on the vine: absolutely. One step closer to healthy self-sufficiency: without question! Ryan Rudloff | Tower Garden/Juice Plus | (541) 350.3993

Tomato gardeners know exactly what I am talking about. Consider this; have you ever picked your first ripe tomato on Fourth of July? I did this year, and have seen my total for the season flirt with 1000. Oh and by the way, that’s only with five actual tomato plants I’m growing. My tree-like contraption allows me to grow my own vine-ripened tomatoes among many others for the majority of the year. Heck, some people with the right environment can have a garden growing year-round! I personally have not had to buy kale, lettuce, tomatoes, chard and bok-choy at a super-market since I began in March.

Fifth Annual Kits for Kids drive Contributes...

Acrovision Sports Center

The Presbyterian Women’s group of First Presbyterian Church and local partners distributed 1,100 hygiene bags to homeless students in Deschutes County. Through the generous efforts of hundreds of community members and several local partners these bags will be distributed throughout the school-year to homeless children by the Family Access Network advocates and school district homeless liaisons. Community partners that contributed to this effort include, First Presbyterian Church; First Methodist Church; Community of Christ Church; High Desert Red Hat Divas; students at Cascade Middle School, New Hope Church; and many other generous community supporters. Last school year there were over 1,100 students identified as homeless within the Deschutes County schools. Local families are not able to Acrovision purchase hygiene products with food stamps and are often forced to choose between buying food and basic items such as soap with their Center Sports limited income. The Kits for Kids project was designed to support families in a concrete way and take a little of the burden off their struggles through homelessness. The Kits for Kids include laundry soap, toilet paper, paper towels, bar soap, shampoo, tooth brushes, tooth paste, deodorant, and dish soap. “We are so thankful for the generous out pouring of community support this year with the Kits for Kids project. Now more than ever, our local homeless children need to know that we care. The Kits for Kids are one way we can make a difference,� Helen Smith, Kits for Kids Committee Chair. It is within the mission of the Presbyterian Women’s group of First Presbyterian Church to support those in need within Central Oregon and throughout the world. The Presbyterian Women’s group strives to make a difference in the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of children in our community and around the world.

Driving school children to and from school on a daily basis adds up. And it’s not just the time it takes out of parents’ days or the cost at the gas pump, each trip takes a toll on the environment. For all these reasons, it is worth finding out if school commutes can be combined with friends and neighbors to create more efficiency with carpools. While they may seem complicated at first, the time and fuel saved by carpools can last through the whole school year, and possibly for years on end. “People’s aversion to that type of commuting can be overcome with creativity and organization,” said Joe Howard, father of Hope Howard and a board member of Commute Options. Howard began using carpools more than five years ago to transport his daughter to Highland Elementary at Kenwood, a magnet school on the other side of town. The Howard family lives in the Skyview neighborhood in NE Bend. Because Highland is a magnet school, enrollment is not limited to those who live in the area. After attending Highland for five years, Hope attended a middle school closer to home but found she missed all of her friends, who were now attending Cascade Middle School on Bend’s west side. The family requested and received permission for her to attend Cascade Middle School, but was not happy about the daily commute this would entail. Through conversations with friends, the Howards found out that a carpool of children attending Hope’s school already existed, and there was room for one more child. “It’s still a small town,” said Howard. “We were fortunate enough to know people who were already in a carpool.” The fact that the carpool already existed did not mean there weren’t other challenges though, said Howard.

“We care like you care ”

The children in Hope’s carpool all start school at the same time, but have different afternoon schedules due to after-school sports and other activities. “Therein lies the challenge of any carpool,” said Howard. The solution that their carpool group found is a very organized Excel spreadsheet that details each child’s pick-up times and who will be there to accomplish the pick-up.

Joe Howard works from home for Navis in reservation sales. His wife Cheryl works in downtown Bend for the City of Bend, where she is a volunteer coordinator. They both have flexible afternoon hours and are available to break away to drive the carpool of children home from school. Other parents have more flexibility in the mornings and are able to take more of the morning commutes. “We value the carpool as a way of reducing our trips,” said Howard. Carpooling makes sense for the Howards both financially and for ethical reasons, and it means Hope can attend the school where she is the most happy. But Howard realizes that not everyone can find a carpool as easily as his family did. “If someone has just moved to town or is not as connected, a carpool matching service would be a great solution,” he said. Families looking for carpools in Central Oregon now have access to a statewide ride matching tool, Drive Less Connect. Launched in September, 2011 by the Oregon Department of Transportation and locally managed by Commute Options, Drive Less Connect is a secure, easy-to-use online ride-matching tool that matches people who are traveling the same way for work and play.

returns with six brand new girls looking to get into modeling. We are very excited to be partnering with Local Views & Events for another year! This year the event is being executively produced by Flip Flop Sounds and an amazing group of Central Oregon Event professionals. Amanda Rose (the founder of One Model) not only photographed the first shoot, but is an integral part of producing the event. Can’t thank her enough! We held auditions in September and had an amazing group of girls show up. From this group we selected our six contestants you will get to know, and see over the next four months. The first photo shoot was very fun and exciting for our competitors to step in front of the camera for the first time as models. The girls were styled in clothing and accessories from The Blvd. Brittany Dixon (lead stylist) and our competitors had a blast trying on different looks from their amazing selection for the photo shoot. Make sure you “like” the LoVE Facebook page and the One Model page for lots of additional information about our contestants and behind the scenes photos.

myWindow with Kristi Miller

By Kristi Miller, Talent/Senior Producer, KBNZ-CBS for Central Oregon

and elevate it into a new show that would air on the CBS affiliate that Zolo Media owns, KBNZ-CBS for Central Oregon. The new show “myWindow with Kristi Miller” is a lifestyle/talk show hybrid and it’s YOUR window to Central Oregon and everything that makes it the special place we all love. We’ll talk about family and relationships, health and beauty, home and garden, recipes, crafts, gadgets and more…all with an emphasis on local. A huge aspect of this new show is the super talented team we have pulled together from BendBroadband, Zolo Media and COTV. Jamie Christman and Dave Jones are Producers; the show is Directed by Greg Fair; Floor Director Brianna Hillier and Creative Director Trevor McCreery. The show’s Editor is Justin Renoud and features are shot by Matt Pugerude. Our overarching goal is to create compelling and fun content that you enjoy watching and will perhaps learn something new from. Some of the first segments and shows will feature Best-selling Author, Jan Brett; Olympic Gold Medalist and hometown favorite, Ashton Eaton; a show devoted to Breast Cancer; Halloween fun; Candidates running for statewide and local office and much more.

Since January of 1999, I have been fortunate enough to host and produce “Good Morning Central Oregon,” a television show on BendBroadband’s COTV channel 11. For the first 11 years, GMCO was a live, hour-long morning show featuring local guests, important topics, news, weather and more. I interviewed thousands of Central Oregonians and was continually impressed by the passion we have for our community. In the summer of 2011, the decision was made to reformat into a 30 minute, pre-taped talk show. We became solely focused on the guests in an effort to highlight the amazing people in our area and the important work being done. But I won’t lie; the first chance in 11 years to not have to wake up at 3:30am was very appealing to me. I know the guests appreciated not having to show up at 6:30am too! Fast forward to Spring 2012 and the monumental decision we made to discontinue the show. It wasn’t an easy decision, GMCO was the longest running show of its kind in Central Oregon and I am proud of all we were able to accomplish. However, we felt we could take what our community has loved about GMCO

I am very excited to be a part of this show and hope to capture all that I love about Central Oregon. Having been born here, I have seen a lot happen over the years…some good, some not. But at the forefront of it all is an undying spirit we have to care for each other and make a difference in our own authentic way…what a great place to live! You can contact us and stay up-to-date on all the shows by following us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and on our website www.

“myWindow with Kristi Miller” is on weekdays at Noon on KBNZ-CBS for Central Oregon. Channels 6 and 606 in HD.
