clothesA161010-011 that we never wear. We all have those A161010-011 clothes still hanging in our closets. I read somewhere that you should hang all your clothes with the hangers facing away from you, then as you wear and wash your clothes, turn them around. After a few months, the hangers still facing away from you are clothes that you should purge. I tried it and did get rid of a bag of clothes, but still have some hanging away from me that I can’t let go of.

Donating items locally can be a great thing. I’m not talking dumping the well-used items in a bin and calling it a donation. If you’re like me, the kids have outgrown their new shoes before you know it and now you have a pair of sneakers still in great shape. Local places, including shelters for women and children, will take these donations where you know they will be put to good use. These kids need items and any necessities are welcomed. Plus, you can feel good that you are helping our local kids. Contact local organizations to find out more about how you can help through your clothing donations.

Starting in December 2 Person Month-Long Leagues Call for details. Private rentals, birthday parties, office parties all available as well.

Mention or bring in this ad for $100 off your laser treatment.

But clothes aren’t the only thing you can donate. There are canned goods, boxes of pasta or unused paper goods that are cluttering your cabinets. Donate them to our local food bank and help families in need. With the holidays coming up, you never know what just might make someone’s day. Basically, you are saving your own sanity by decluttering, but on a more important level you are buying local to support local, and donating local to help locals. Let’s support our own communities first.

We can fix your toenail fungus with the most effective, safest treatment available. It’s a pain free laser treatment that is FDA approved!

AN ORIGINAL APPROACH It’s all about your lifestyle BY COLIN ANDERSON

WITH ALL THE CHANGES and upheaval in the health insurance market and ever-changing life events, it was time for a new way of providing insurance services. Bradley Insurance has developed a responsive, customer-driven agency model to ensure clients have a good understanding of how to best protect themselves and their loved ones. At Bradley Insurance the focus is on lifestyle coverage. Unlike homeowner or car insurance that primarily covers property, lifestyle insurance is about people — helping people maintain their lifestyle regardless of health or life changes. Lifestyle products provide financial stability and independence which include coverage for health, life, long-term care, disability, accident, income protection and medicare solutions, to name a few. “Our rapid success in a very saturated market is in part due to our comprehensive look at each client’s big picture needs,” explained owner Kathleen Bradley. “Every client has a unique set of circumstances and those circumstances and risk factors determine what coverage and products will best protect them. Every client deserves to have an advisor help them with the complexities and options that can sometimes be overwhelming.” One of the challenges clients face each year is changes to their health insurance plans and Medicare coverage. It’s always unsettling to receive those letters saying your current plan is changing or no longer available, your costs are going up and you have a short time frame to figure it all out. According to Bradley, “Our job is to relieve some of the stress and frustration clients experience by guiding them through options, handling the paperwork, meeting the deadlines and, in the end, making sure they are confident with their choices.”

Kathleen and Jesse Bradley opened Bradley Insurance in 2013 in Sagle, and in July of 2014, opened the education and service center at its current location in Ponderay. An Idaho native, Kathleen returned to live and work in what she considers, “the best place this country has to offer.” The staff at Bradley Insurance continues to grow as they add professional agents with a passion for helping clients, as well as giving back to the community. The Bonner Community Food Bank, Sandpoint Academy of the Arts, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Mystic Farm Wildlife Rescue, Girl Scouts of America, Leadership Sandpoint, Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce, Business Networking International and the Adopt-a-Highway program are some of the organizations for which they volunteer their time and support. Looking forward, Bradley Insurance is continually expanding their products and services while building trusted relationships with their clients. As an independent agency, they work for you — providing practical solutions and expert advice while always putting you first.

“ONE OF THE MOST important lessons I have learned from sports is that success requires hard work. A big part of sports is setting goals and working hard to reach them,” said Sandpoint High School volleyball player, Cheyenne Nicholson. “I have seen this over and over again both in playing volleyball and in my everyday life.” Cheyenne has been playing volleyball on both school and club teams since she was in the seventh grade. She loves the competition. “My favorite feeling is when the game is close and the rally goes back and forth and then you finish with a win,” she said. Cheyenne plans to attend either the College of Idaho or Portland State and study pre-med and eventually pursue a career in obstetrics and gynecology. While she does not plan on playing volleyball at the collegiate level, Cheyenne shared that she would like to stay involved in the sport either by coaching or being a referee. Like most teenagers, Cheyenne stays busy and said one of the biggest challenges has been learning to balance sports, school and a social life. “Volleyball takes up a lot of my time and maintaining my grades and finding time to hang out with friends was not easy, but I was able to find a way by knowing my priorities and utilizing any free time,” she said. Her coach, Erin Roos, describes Cheyenne as a hard working athlete who is always striving to improve. “She brings a ton of enthusiasm to the court,” said Roos. “She’s one of our senior tri-

CLAY RASMUSSEN: AS A CROSS-COUNTRY and track athlete, Clay Rasmussen is an asset to his teammates at Sandpoint High School. According to his coaches, Matt and Angie Brass, Clay has a great work ethic, leads by example and is one of the team’s most prized hill climbers and story tellers. “He has helped to build the guys’ team into a regional powerhouse,” said Matt. Clay recently beat his personal record and is now on the all-time 5K list for Sandpoint High School’s cross-country team. “Getting there took a lot of training and effort not to mention mentoring and leadership from my coaches,” said Clay. In addition to track and cross-country, Clay is also on academic decathlon and enjoys playing the violin. To his surprise he was also crowned homecoming king. “I was not expecting to win, but it felt great knowing so many of my classmates voted for me,” he said. Looking ahead to next year, Clay said it would be exhilarating to run for a college team, but does not have any concrete plans as of yet. “I have received a letter of interest from Linfield College for cross-country in Oregon, but I am looking into an in-state college, possibly LewisClark,” shared Clay, who said he has in interest in joining the military. Clay said he enjoys being part of a tem and the dedication it takes to be a cross-country runner. As he looks back on his years working with his coaches, Clay is grateful. “Matt and Angie have taught me so many life lessons in perseverance and dedication. I think the biggest lesson I have taken away from sports is a positive attitude and the effect it has on you and the people around you,” said Clay.
