Think like a local and act like a local. Or just be yourself. You’re cool how you are. As spring and summer are just around the corner, plenty of vacationers are looking at North Idaho for that relaxing, low-key getaway, but as a local, what are your thoughts on that? There’s a funny meme rolling around on Facebook with a North Idaho population sign on which someone has notso-expertly photoshopped the words, “Go home, we’re full.” It’s a tongue-in-cheek sentiment, but as a local, who wants out-of-towners crowding their favorite hot spots?

METHOD

*May 1st only with ad

1.

Preheat oven to 420° F. Place a sheet of baking paper on two large baking trays and draw 8” rounds.

2.

Separate your eggs. Beat your egg whites until they are stiff, and slowly add your sugar along with the vanilla essence, one tablespoon at a time. Beat until stiff peaks form. Turn your bowl upside down to make sure the whites are stiff enough. If not, beat another minute or so, then check again.

3.

Sift the cocoa powder into the raw meringue and fold through, carefully ensuring you leave streaks of cocoa.

4.

Shape the meringue into the two rounds on the baking paper/trays. Place meringues into oven and immediately turn temperature down to 250° F. Bake for 90 minutes, turn off oven, and leave meringues until oven is cool.

Topping: 1.

Drain the cherries with a bowl underneath it to catch the syrup. Give the cherries a shake to make sure the syrup drains out of them. You will want the cherries quite dry.

2.

Pour the syrup into a saucepan and reduce over medium heat to a honey-like consistency (about 5 to 10 minutes).

3.

Beat the cream with the coffee until stiff peaks form. Spread half of the cream over the bottom meringue, place cherries on the cream along with half of the chopped walnuts. Sprinkle half of the chocolate shavings over the meringue.

4.

Place the top meringue layer over the bottom. Spread the remaining cream, along with the cherries, nuts and chocolate shavings. Top with the chocolate curls. Drizzle the cherry syrup over the entire pavlova.

For me, home is about the relationships that are facilitated under my roof. Home is my family, my friends and connection to others. In other words, home is more about strong and loving relationships. The roof under which all this love and connection is possible is important. But the roof is not to be confused with the connections themselves. A Delightful Way to Downsize About five years ago, I came across the tiny-house movement and have been a fervent enthusiast ever since. Since I was first introduced to the idea of living large in a small space, several companies that build tiny homes have made a name for themselves. For example, a company named Tumbleweed Tiny House Company manufactures a beautiful home that is only 163

square feet. Contained within 163 square feet, buyers will find a bathroom with toilet and shower, and a kitchen with refrigerator, stove and microwave. The home also contains a living room, a small bedroom and a sleeping loft upstairs. Tumbleweed’s homes are built with the ability to easily go off the grid. Buyers can fit them with solar panels, rainwater collectors and composting toilets.

However, I freely admit that most families like mine would have a very difficult time packing their entire lives into 163 square feet. Fortunately, most tiny-homes companies have much larger options. I have seen some tiny homes that are closer to 1,000 square feet. The key is these homes are built to maximize every inch of space within them. But more importantly, these homes are affordable, and they cater to those who do not want to be saddled with a 30-year mortgage. For most of us with young families, the largest expense in our budget is usually the mortgage. Tiny homes provide a viable alternative to overextending one’s monthly budget. These homes provide an opportunity to own a home free and clear, which has the potential to create more financial security for families. An Idea You Can Bank On

Who purchases tiny homes, and what do their lives look like? • Two out of five tiny-home owners are at least 50 years of age • Tiny-home owners are twice as likely to have a masters degree • Around 70 percent of tiny-home owners have no mortgage • 90 percent of tiny-home owners have less credit-card debt than the average American • The average cost to build a tiny home is only $23,000 Living authentically and affordably does not mean that we also must settle for less. While we might need to readjust our expectations in order to make a transition to a tiny home, it can be done. When we live authentically, we are not settling for less since it is our relationships that nurture us. As long as family and friends surround us, we are already living the American dream.

wrenco arms Your No. 1 stop for firearms,

ammunition and accessories By Jillian Chandler

Wrenco Arms had been a Sandpoint community staple for more than 15 years, and in April 2015, ownership changed hands, and husband-and-wife team Brandon and Abby Terry purchased the store. The couple moved to the area that same month, though they had spent a lot of time in Sandpoint camping and skiing over the past 14 years. Brandon was in law enforcement for 18 years, and Abby is an RN. With a goal to make a change in their lives to afford them the opportunity to spend more time together as a family—they have two daughters, 13-year-old Denali and 15-year-old Arianna— relocating to Sandpoint was the answer. “We fell in love with Sandpoint the first time we visited!” says Abby.

As Brandon says, they are grateful to own a business here in Sandpoint. “We love that Sandpoint is such a welcoming place to live, and the businesses in Sandpoint certainly reflect that. The best part of being a business owner of Wrenco Arms is being able to serve our customers and really get to know their needs. Building that personal relationship with our customers is the best part of the job.”


arine Service Sagle M and Storage 208.304.8887 “Our customers are more than just an online order number to us!” adds Abby. With Brandon’s previous experience in law enforcement, the couple is able to provide their customers with excellent, knowledgeable customer service. In addition, Brandon and Abby have set themselves apart from other similar businesses in that they offer a Lifetime Parts and Service Warranty on all firearms that are purchased from them, with the exception of consignment sales. At Wrenco Arms, they make it top priority to provide excellent customer service, and they have worked extremely hard to establish that identity in the Sandpoint community. Whether you have a vast knowledge about the firearm industry or are just starting out, Brandon and Abby welcome you into their store. They are ready and eager to help every person who walks through their door. “We want you to feel welcome coming into our store,” says Abby. “We have met so many great down-to-earth people since coming here, and they have become loyal customers, which is something we don’t take for granted.” As a business, Brandon and Abby contribute to their local community it other ways. They have had the privilege of partnering with several community organizations through numerous donations including Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Foundation for Wildlife Management, Sandpoint Lions Club, Sandpoint High School Wrestling program and band program, Sandpoint Friends of the NRA and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. In addition, the Terrys, as a family, are actively involved in their church in various volunteer capacities.

They’re ready to serve you. Wrenco Arms 102 S. Boyer Ave. Sandpoint, ID 83864 208.265.6737 www.WrencoArms.com

A Faster Road to Recovery By Amanda Thome, DPT, Idaho Pain Clinic HAVE YOU EVER wondered what it would feel like to walk on the moon? Maybe you’ve wondered if you weighed 50 or 100 pounds less, could you move without pain or maybe train for that marathon with less impact and chance of injury. Those very questions had to be asked by the company behind the AlterG; the anti-gravity treadmill system that for once doesn’t require its users to don those cumbersome harnesses to achieve body-weight offloading. Clients no longer need to submerge themselves in the pool up to their shoulders to achieve 80-percent offloading. The AlterG is NASA-developed technology which uses a sealed air chamber to offload its user’s body weight. The system is able to offload up to 80 percent of the client’s weight and can be adjusted by one- percent increments, no water or harness needed.

So what does this mean for users? This means that for some people, they will be able to take their first pain-free steps in years. It means that people recovering after orthopedic surgery can get back to walking sooner and with less pain than ever before. Users recovering from neurological conditions such as stroke, Guillain–Barré syndrome or those with Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis can walk in a safe environment with body weight offloaded. The AlterG is widely used with clients who are

It’s more than just a rehabilitative breakthrough: the AlterG is also a breakthrough for athletes across the board. The AlterG has made its way into five Olympic training centers and 29 NFL, 27 NBA, 23 MLB, three NHL and three MLS teams. It is being used by the world’s most elite athletes to increase their speed and endurance, and recover from or reduce the chance of injury. By offloading the athlete’s body weight by only 15 percent, the AlterG is able to allow clients to train at intervals 10-percent faster than their fastest speed on land. This high-intensity interval training on the AlterG limits the chance of overuse or stress injuries many athletes would sustain when done on land. The research supports it, too. AlterG has shown that after eight sessions over a four-week period, their athletes saw an increase of 3.3

When you are talking about seconds or fractions of a second between first and second or making that touchdown sprint, you can appreciate that a 3.3-percent edge over your competitor can make all the difference in the world.

ATHLETES OF THE MONTH BY PATTY HUTCHENS. COURTESY PHOTOS.

ELIANA CRAVENS: ELIANA CRAVENS has been on the varsity cheerleading squad since she was a freshman. It is something she thoroughly enjoys and plans to continue at the collegiate level. “I enjoy stunting and tumbling because I love the fact that I can lift others and myself up to do things that defy gravity,” said the Sandpoint High School junior. In addition to cheer, Eliana also participates in track and field, something she began her sophomore year. When asked about her future plans, Eliana shares that she plans to attend Boise State University to study anthropology. “I really want to be an archaeologist because I find it to be an interesting career. Also, I’ve always wanted to be like Indiana Jones,” shared Eliana, who added she also plans to cheer for Boise State University as well. Eliana said that when it comes to life challenges, she has found that the biggest hurdle for her to overcome has been leadership. “On the sidelines, in the classrooms and in the community, leadership is a vital component. I overcome this challenge by staying positive and representing my school to the best of my ability,” said Eliana.

As with any sport, coaches do more than teach about a given sport. They also impart life lessons to those on their teams. For Eliana, the lesson she will carry with her throughout all that she does in life is that of accountability. “One lesson that I’ve learned from my coaches is to hold myself and others accountable for their actions.”

PATRICK ROCKWELL: A THREE-SPORT ATHLETE, Patrick Rockwell knows what it takes to excel. “I have been playing basketball, tennis and soccer since I was very young. This includes two years of varsity soccer, two years of varsity basketball and four years of varsity tennis,” said Patrick. That alone takes a great deal of commitment, but add on top of that the fact that Patrick is able to maintain a 4.27 GPA, and it is nothing short of impressive. One thing he has learned through athletics is endurance. “Nothing else in life has pushed me to my physical extremes like sports,” shared Patrick, who adds that what

he loves most about athletics is being with a good group of people with whom he is able to spend a majority of his free time. “I have formed my best friendships through sports and being part of a team.” Patrick plans to attend the University of Utah in Salt Lake City where he will pursue a mechanical engineering degree. “Someday I want to invent something sweet that helps a lot of people,” said Patrick. “I’ve always been good at math and like to problem solve.” He credits Kent Anderson, his tennis coach, with being the most inspirational coach in his life. “He has shown me that being a good person is much more important than winning every single match that you play. He has always been very relaxed and fun to be around and gives feedback to people in a positive way,” said Patrick. “I have never seen this guy have a frown on his face, and one day I want to be as happy and fun to be around as Kent Anderson.”
