here are many well-documented benefits to our communities and to each of us to choosing local, independently owned businesses. We realize it is not always possible to buy what you need locally and so merely ask you to Think Local FIRST! 10 Reasons to Think Local - Buy Local – Deal it Local! 1. Buying local means supporting yourself. Studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses. 2. Support community groups. Non-profit organizations receive an average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses. 3. Keep our community unique. Where we shop, where we eat and have fun—all of it makes our community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of this place. 4. Reduce environmental impact. Locally owned businesses make more local purchases requiring less transportation. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss and pollution. 5. Create more good jobs. Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally and in our community, provide the most jobs to residents. 6. Get better service. Local businesses often hire people with a better understanding of the products they are selling and take more time to get to know customers. 7. Invest in community. Local businesses are owned by people who live in this community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in the community’s future. 8. Put your taxes to good use. Local businesses require comparatively little infrastructure investment and make more efficient use of public services as compared to nationally owned stores entering the community. 9. Buy what you want, not what someone wants you to buy. A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term; guaranteeing a much broader range of product choices.

Bring the beauty of our wood into your life! 4355 Cow Creek Road Bonners Ferry, Idaho 208.267.1330


10. Encourage local prosperity. A growing body of economic research shows that in an increasingly homogenized world, entrepreneurs and skilled workers are more likely to invest and settle in communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character.

Red Rooster Coffee Company HEAD ROASTER, JACK YOUNT


stablished in 2008 in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, Red Rooster Coffee Company has been roasting some of the finest fairly traded, organic coffees from around the globe. With a roaster fabricated by Sandpoint’s Diedrich Manufacturing, Red Rooster Coffee Company roasts weekly to ensure freshness and quality. With a commitment to roasting quality coffee, Head Roaster, Jack Yount, made it his goal to source beans from estates and farms that practice sustainable farming and harvesting techniques. It is with these beans that he can produce the fair trade, organic coffee that he prefers. Red Rooster Coffee Company has plans to expand and someday utilize a larger roaster, but for now, this free trade, organic coffee can be found at numerous businesses in Bonners Ferry. It is sold at Under The Sun, Mountain Mike’s, Kootenai River Brewing Company, Badger’s Den and Bonners Books.

or the past several years, there is hullabaloo on the need to be slim and sexy. Grocery shelves are filled with several food supplements and other products that promise certain health and wellness benefits. Home TV shopping channels also offer everything from slimming tea to herbal soap to ‘instant abs’ exercise gadgets. Gyms across the country are fast gaining members who are willing to sweat it out just to burn excess calories from mindless munching and eating. There is also an increasing number of vegetarianism and raw food diet converts who vow to trade juicy hamburgers for fresh vegetables and fruits. People who are stressed out dream of luxurious spa treatments, Thai and Swedish massages, and detoxification diets. All of a sudden, there’s the need to attain fitness and healthy living. This desire can be attributed to man’s realization that the world he is living in is too polluted and toxic. Fitness and healthy living seems to be man’s only hope in staying sane and sound in this otherwise hostile world. If one wishes to achieve fitness and healthy living, he should go for ‘holistic’ approach. A person who wants to have superfit body goes to the gym a lot and sticks to rigorous exercise routines. There’s nothing seemingly wrong with this but he should also see to it he is eating the right kinds of food. It is not enough to be physically fit outside; one has to strive to be internally and externally healthy. Body builders have to follow specific diets appropriate for his physical needs. It is a must to consult personal trainers who can prescribe a proper workout routine and the corresponding diet needed for such routine. Furthermore, people with weight problems should not only focus on improving their diet. Overweight and obese people also need to regularly exercise. One sure way to improve one’s

health condition is through exercising and eating wisely. A person should consider these two key aspects as a two-in-one package.

Fitness and healthy living cannot be attained without the exercise of one’s will. An overweight person cannot be fit and healthy just be watching TV all day and expecting to wake up slim the next morning. Fitness and healthy living requires a lot of effort and involves many decision-making opportunities. One must be really determined to improve his diet and religiously follow exercise routines to be able to resist temptations that may go along the way. Sometimes, it is too tempting to pig out a little more often and to just watch movies at home instead of exercising and eating good food. But if a person firmly decided to be slim and sexy, he should be willing to let go of life’s needless pleasures.

A man and a woman go to the carnival every year. Every time the man says,”Anna can we ride them airplanes that goes up for a couple of minutes then comes back down?”

A prince had a curse put on him when he was a little boy. He could only speak two words every year. But, if he didn’t speak for a whole year, he would then be able to speak 4 words the next year and so on.

The woman always replied by saying,”We don’t need to spend any extra money on them airplanes,its to expensive. Ten dollars is ten dollars.

One day he met a princess named Josie and he wanted to say “My Princess”.

Tom, the pilot, said,” Larry, every year I hear you say you want to ride my airplanes, and every year Anna says it’s too expensive. I’ll make you a deal, if I do all of my flips and tricks with you in there with me, and you don’t say one word, I’ll give you the ride for free.

The next year he saw her he wanted to say “My princess, I love you”. The third year he saw her he wanted to say “My princess I love you, will you marry me?” But, the young prince, now growing older knew he would have to wait a couple more years.

Anna and Larry discussed it and decided they would take the deal. They got up in the air and Tom did all of his tricks and flips.

So, on the fifth year, excited to finally present his question, he visited the princess.

Tom said,”Larry I just knew you`d say something on that first flip,but you didn’t!

He approached her respectfully and asked, “JOSIE, MY PRINCESS, I LOVE YOU. WILL YOU MARRY ME?”

Larry replied,” I was going to say something when Anna fell out, but ten dollars is ten dollars.

And the princess said, “Pardon?”
