Promote Your Business ONLINE DIRECTORIES


owadays, many people search online for services instead of reaching for the phone book. To increase your online exposure your pages should include your street address, zip code, phone number, five-digit zip code and make sure to list your business within local business directories. Submitting To Directories Links from directories are some of the most valuable links you can get. Note: Directories are not the same as search engines. A link from a directory will help your search engine ranking. There are thousands of online directories, but some are more significant than others. In addition to directories such as the Open Directory Project, some of the most important search engines such as Yahoo and Google have directories of their own. Some of the greatest advantages of submitting your site to directories are you get: • One-way links. Remember, one-way links are more valuable than reciprocal links. • Potentially qualified clients repeatedly see your listing.

he saying says it all, although known nation wide, State Farm is more than just a name; it’s an organic company whereby each locally owned office invests itself in the community it serves. For this reason alone, State Farm sets itself apart from all other insurance companies. The best part, clients receive personal, one on one service backed by the largest personal lines insurance company. Why does State Farm consistently receive Top Honors when rated on service? Because they believe in local, personal, hands on service.

Not only that but Brian has been a firefighter and emergency medical technician for 22 years; that experience adds to the level of service your local State Farm office brings. “We’re local and we are here.” Brian Strong, owner and operator of the Local Bonners Ferry State Farm Agency said. Brian has been with State Farm for 15 years specializing in business underwriting and recently decided to become an agent. Having always dreamed of someday moving to a small community in the mountains where he could hike, backpack, camp and enjoy the great outdoors, Bonners Ferry fit the bill. Brian went on to say, “We fell in love with not only the beautiful landscape but the community as well. Having moved from Columbia Missouri, this is the lifestyle we always dreamed of.” Brian and his wife, Josey, followed their hearts and took over the local State Farm Agency, “This was the perfect opportunity to own a small local business.” Brian’s team consists of Cody Martin and Sarah Smith and both are North Idaho natives. Sarah is from Bonners Ferry

and Cody is from Post Falls. They are fully licensed and bank certified and make a great addition to the local State Farm family. In addition, Brian is a State Farm Financial Services Representative helping people build their futures not just protect them.

S 15th.

ixty-four golfers, some in full golf regalia, brought sunglasses, sun-block, clubs, aspirations of winning the golf tournament, and possibly winning a car, to the Mirror Lake Golf Course in Bonners Ferry, Friday, June

“We are very pleased with the large turn-out for the community fund-raiser supporting Boundary Community Hospital” stated Marcia Morman, Community Relations Coordinator for Boundary Community Hospital. “The Fry Foundation’s Annual Golf Tournament is one of Fry Foundation’s main fund-raising events of the year. Linda Hiatt, President of Fry Foundation, pulled off another great day of golfing—even arranging for a sunny day!” Players competed in two-person teams. Ed Moe and Travis Hinthorn were overall winners and they will be flying high when Adventurist Air flies them over the mouth of Hell’s Canyon in a hot-air balloon for 90 minutes viewing historical Lewis and Clark lands--a prize donated by Adventurist Air worth $399. A total of $4,500 was raised. J.B.’s Les Schwab and Riverside Auto Center gave a re-usable water bottle to all participants. Generous prizes were given by Boundary Tractor, Chic-n-Chop, Dixon Golf, Edward Jones Investments, Gift Gallery, Inland Northwest Blood Mobile,

Kootenai River Brewery, Moose Valley Farms, Performance Off-Road, Ralph Lotspeich Golf Lessons, Silverwood Theme Parks, Spokane Chiefs Hockey, Spokane Indians Baseball, and Sugar Plum Floral. Riverside Auto Center was standing by with a shiny 2011 Jeep Compass Limited SUV for the lucky golfer who could sink the golf ball into hole #8 with one shot, and a hole-in-one on the 17th hole would have won a $500 Visa Card also from Riverside Auto Center. In spite of valiant attempts, no golfer was able to produce that lucky shot. The Eagle Sponsor was Yellowstone Insurance Exchange, Birdie Sponsor was Idaho Forest Products, Par Sponsors were Panhandle State Bank, and JB’s Les Schwab Tires, and Bogie Sponsors were Community Title, LLC, Echo Springs Transition Study Center, Eldon and Annie Koon, Gardiner Prime Angus Beef Ranch, and Super One Foods. The Festival of Trees is the next large fund-raiser for the Fry Foundation. Mark your calendar for Friday, December 7 and the Gala on Saturday, December 8 of this year. The Fry Foundation is one of our community’s most vital organizations. It is the community’s fund-raising vehicle helping enable Boundary Community Hospital deliver quality health-care in our rural setting.

n a world where we’re stressed, overscheduled, and often overwhelmed, it’s easy to neglect our health. Stress negatively impacts our autoimmune system, making us more susceptible to garden variety viruses and bacteria. Over time, the cumulative effect of stress can lead to more serious chronic illnesses, as well as to life-threatening conditions. Thankfully, there are a number of health products on the market that can help us in our efforts. Joint Health: Whether you are a fitness buff or you lead a sedentary lifestyle, it’s all too easy for the condition of your joints and their connective tissues to deteriorate over time. Vitamin C is essential to joint health, but other nutritional supplements that are especially formulated to keep joints flexible can help, as can a cream that is used topically. Glucosamine, for example, helps the body produce collagen, which helps cushion and protect the joints. Digestion: If your diet is high in processed foods, or if you’re under a considerable amount of stress, the chances are good that your digestive tract is under duress. Thankfully, there a number of health products that can help you get back on track. Look for nutritional supplements that promote a healthy, pro-biotic digestive tract, and those that provide you with both soluble and insoluble fiber to get ride of accumulated toxins. Immune System: If your diet is out of whack or if you lead a stressful life, your immune system is likely to be disproportionately affected. It’s import to choose health products that boost your immune system by promoting

good intestinal bacteria, supporting the lymph glands, and providing protection against the damage caused by free radicals. Heart: A healthy diet and plenty of exercise are two elements of heart health, but it’s not always easy to get it right. That’s why health products that provide you with omega-3 fatty acids, formulations that support healthy heart rhythms, and nutritional supplements that optimize blood vessel strength and elasticity are important to have in your arsenal. Women’s Health: Women’s bodies are different from men’s bodies and need health products that specifically promote women’s health. Maintaining bone density, for example, is especially important for women, as is eliminating toxins that threaten breast health. When women are peri-menopausal or going through menopause, the right nutritional supplements can help alleviate symptoms and can ensure that a woman smoothly makes the transition through her middle years. Men’s Health: Like women, men have their special needs. Nutritional supplements that enhance prostate health, for example, can be especially relevant to men’s health, as can health products that are formulated to strengthen the immune system and increase cellular health. When you’re shopping for health products, it’s important to select a reputable company that uses natural ingredients. Choosing a global leader in health and wellness will ensure that you get the high quality products you need, that in turn will give you the peace of mind you deserve. artisan

he very first Senior Golf Open was played in New York in June of 1980 at the Winged Foot Golf Club on the East Course. It was established because of the interest of senior golfers who wanted to compete on an amateur and professional level. The very first Senior Open had six hundred and thirty-one entries. At this time, the senior golfer had to be at least fifty-five years of age the day of the tournament. Some of the former champions competed in the first Senior Golf Open such as William Campbell, Tommy Bolt, Jack Fleck, Ed Furgol and Lew Worsham. The winner of the first Senior Golf Open was Roberto De Vicenzo while William Campbell was in second place. The age limit was lowered to fifty just one year later to allow for more participants in the tournament. Arnold Palmer went onto win the second Senior Open at the age of fifty-one in Michigan. Miller Barber won the Senior Open in 1982, which was just one of his three wins for a Senior Open. The other two wins were for 1984 and 1985. As of 2002, there were a little over three thousand entries for the Senior Golf Open. In 2006, Allen Doyle became the new oldest winner of the Senior Open at the age of fifty-seven, eleven months, seventeen days. The oldest winner before that was De Vicenzo at the age of fifty-seven years, two months and fifteen days. Don Pooley won his way into the Senior Golf Open by qualifying and went onto win the tournament in 2002. Today, you will see only a three or four hole playoff if needed were in the past it used to be four playoffs of eighteen holes. There have only been a few times in the Senior Open history of a playoff occurring, once in 1981, 1983, 1988 and 1991 with the winners being Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Gary Player and Jack Nicholas respectfully.

In 2007, the Senior Open was played at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wisconsin where senior golf player Brad Bryant won the Championship. He had winnings of four hundred and seventy thousand dollars to take home with him. He did share his revenue with his caddies Tony Smith. The golf course designed Pete Dye was designed to attract PGA tournaments in the future. It proved to be a tricky course that is considered rugged terrain that does not have golf cart abilities. If you want a chance to watch the U.S. Senior Open when it comes to your town, you can buy advance tickets, walk around with your favorite players, and see how they fair in the tournament. Some of the courses they play are set up according to the guidelines established for the tours. This is just another way to see how the pros do it and how they apply different stances and what clubs they use to get distance and win the game. It is always a spectacular event for any city and golf course when the Senior Open comes to town.

Anxious to finally get the porch painted, I urged by husband to allow the man that knocked on our door looking for handiwork to do the job. The man happily agreed to paint it for $50. We were thrilled at our good luck of getting our wide porch painted for a measly $50. Minutes later there was a knock at the door. “All done” he said. “Already?” we both said at once. “Yeah, and by the way, it’s a Lexus not a Porsche”.


A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named “Ahmal.” The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him “Juan.” Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Ahmal. Her husband responds, “They’re twins! If you’ve seen Juan, you’ve seen Ahmal.”


A man wasn’t feeling well so he went to the doctor. After examining him the doctor took his wife aside, and said, “your husband has a very sensitive heart. I am afraid he’s not going to make it, unless you treat him like a king, which means you are at his every beck and call, 24 hours a day and that he doesn’t have to do anything himself. On the way home the husband asked with a note of concern “what did he say?” “Well”, the lady responded, “he said it looks like you probably won’t make it.”


A colleague and I were fitting clothes for a fashion show benefit. All the models were residents of our small town, including the local doctor. He tried on one outfit and then asked, “what should I do next?” Gleefully seizing the opportunity, my friend replied, “go to the dressing room remove your clothes, put on a paper robe and wait.”


So this old man goes to the doctor and the doctor says, “You’re test results came back and I’m afraid I have some bad news. You have Cancer and you have Alzheimer’s”. The old man says, “That ain’t so bad, at least I don’t have Cancer!”

A lady went to a doctor’s office where she was seen by a doctor. A few minutes into the examination screeching could be heard from the room and then the lady burst out of the room as if running for her life. After much effort a nurse finally managed to calm her down enough to tell her story. The nurse barged into the office of the doctor and screamed, “Shame on you, Mrs. Smith is 82 years old, and you told her she’s pregnant!?” The doctor continued writing calmly and while barely looking up said, “Well, does she still have the hiccups?”
