Quality and distinction are what drives this family business My great uncle, Hillman Buchser, began enhancing homes with top-quality products and service in 1928. He welcomed my father, Calvin Buchser, into the growing company in 1946 and was subsequently joined by my sister, Beverly Ullmann, in 1958. The family legacy continued when I joined the business eleven years later. Today my wife, Susie, and son, Daniel, are also involved with Aawnings & Sunrooms of Distinction, making it truly a family endeavor. The awning and sunroom industry has seen tremendous change in recent years, consistent with the growing demand for energy efficient products. Solar energy research has confirmed that the use of exterior awnings can reduce room temperatures more than 20 degrees, and that sunrooms can provide up to 50 percent savings on heating bills in the winter months. Awnings and sunrooms often add more resale value to a home than the initial cost of installing them. When properly designed, sunrooms create the perfect environment for enjoying the outdoors, indoors. Beautiful glass walls and roofs preserve over 92 percent of a home owner’s outdoor views. Our awnings and solar shades are

easily customized to accommodate the homeowners’ unique needs for protection from sun glare and heat. All of the company’s sun control systems can be made fixed, retractable, motorized or automated for sun and wind control. We have become proficient at transforming nature’s harsh conditions into the most comfortable of living spaces. Homeowners needing more living space, or having problems with sun exposure, find Aawnings & Sunrooms of Distinction’s products to be an excellent value. The future of the business looks bright because of the continuing advancements in product development and the increase in consumer awareness of energy efficient designs. We remain committed to providing our community with a quality of service that continues to be distinctly professional and personal. We provide free estimates to customers living anywhere between the Hood Canal Bridge and Forks. — Brad Buchser

Haas and Ramirez, putting four decades of expertise on your side Attorneys Michael Haas and Samuel Ramirez know personal injury litigation inside and out. Prior to starting their own firm, both men worked for Seattle-based Alexander & Bierman, representing large insurance companies in literally hundreds of personal injury lawsuits. Today they bring that experience to the other side of the table — representing individual clients through their Bainbridge Island and Port Townsend offices. Because they know how insurance companies operate, they know how to combat them professionally, effectively and affordably. Haas & Ramirez strives to provide the highest possible quality legal services to people in Clallam, Jefferson, King, Kitsap and Mason counties. Since 2008, the firm has handled a variety of cases involving millions of dollars in claims. “Accident victims always incur financial loss and our goal is to secure adequate financial compensation at the earliest opportunity,” Ramirez says. “Settlements pay for future medical care and lost wages. These people are hurt physically, they shouldn’t have to take a double hit by being hurt financially, too.” Relatively fresh from insurance defense, Ramirez says he knows the realities of how

the industry works. “They are in it for a profit — and they are hugely profitable. And risk adverse,” he says. “When the facts are on our side, it doesn’t matter if a large insurance company has an army of attorneys, we will usually prevail.” He sees the firm’s job as being to determine if the facts are on a client’s side and to then connect the dots. “Our goal is to help each client through a very difficult time,” Ramirez says. He encourages potential clients to realize that they are not suing the person who injured them, they are most often suing a faceless insurance company.

Have You Been

Accidents happen, he says, and it’s important to realize when you deserve to be compensated. Haas & Ramirez also practices criminal law and has experience handling all levels of crimes from DUI to murder. “We practice criminal law because we believe that everybody’s entitled to a fair trial and because we know from experience that the police don’t always get it right,” Ramirez says. “We consider it an honor and a privilege to defend the constitution every day that we go to work.” For more information or for a free initial consultation, phone 360-385-3844.

Kenmore Air partners with Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air Kenmore Air Express is now in its eighth year of service to the North Olympic Peninsula, offering the only scheduled airline service to and from Port Angeles. Over that period, some things have changed, while many have remained the same. Among the constants is Port Angeles station manager Robin McHattie, who, along with her staff, provides the highest levels of customer service to her passengers. “Port Angeles is a lucky community,� says Kenmore Air’s director of stations Andrew Otterness, “because Robin absolutely sets the gold standard for our airline. I wish I could clone her.� “I know most of our passengers by name,� Robin says, “which is one of the things I like about working for a small airline. I think people who fly with us appreciate that personal touch.� Another thing that remains unchanged about Kenmore Air’s service is its convenience. Flight times between William R. Fairchild International Airport in Port Angeles and downtown Seattle’s Boeing Field are only 35 minutes, and the airline offers several flights each day. For passengers connecting to or from other flights at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Kenmore Air provides a complimentary shuttle for the short drive between Seattle terminals. Total travel time from Port Angeles to Sea-Tac is only 55 minutes. Kenmore Air partners with Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air. According to Kenmore Air marketing director Craig O’Neill, “This partnership, which was years in the making, really connects Port Angeles to the rest of the world in new ways.� First, customers can now book seamless, single-ticket itineraries from Port Angeles to more than 90 cities across North America and Hawaii served by Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air at “This one-stop shopping is not only easier,� Craig says, “but it eases a major source of anxiety for folks: with your Kenmore Air and Alaska Airlines flights booked on a single, interline ticket,

you are protected from most re-accommodation fees in the event that you miss a connection — in either direction. This provides real peace of mind for travelers.� Second, Kenmore Air is a full-fledged partner in the awardwinning Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan. Every Kenmore Air flight earns participants 250 miles, and miles can also be redeemed for free flights on Kenmore Air, to Port Angeles or any of its more than 40 other destinations. “For local travel, or connections on major airlines other than Alaska or Horizon, people can continue to book on our website [] or toll-free by phone,� Craig says. “Or, of course, they can come and see Robin at the airport! But we really encourage folks to check out for travel from Port Angeles to most popular destinations. It’s a great partnership for the Peninsula.�


“Who’s Who� is intended to recognize the movers and shakers in a company — the real VIPs. Well, at Kenmore Air Express, that means our passengers And if saving hours, looking down on traffic and ferry lines, and earning 250 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles everytime you fly with us starts to make you feel like a bit of a big shot . . . well, so be it. That’s how we’re committed to treating you anyway. So hold your head up as you gaze out your big window. Strut a little as you step off the plane. You’re a mover and a shaker at the Peninsula’s airline! 22575750

Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe showcases art and unique gifts The Northwest Native Expressions Art Gallery and Gift Shop recently launched a website: On the website, customers can purchase many of the gift shop's items including T-shirts, jackets, carvings, blankets, books for all ages, framed and shrink-wrapped prints, drums, flutes, masks, etched glassware, moccasins, handcrafted items including some from Jamestown S'Klallam tribal artists, and jewelry including sterling silver, Northwest coast designs and Southwest designs. The gift shop also sells music CDs, DVDs, notecards and postcards, bookmarks, calendars, coffee and tea. Many artwork pieces in the gallery are made from cedar, including bentwood boxes, baskets, plaques, masks and paddles, all of which are handcrafted. The cedar baskets in the gallery are extremely unique since cedar for the baskets can only be collected at certain times of the year and from select locations. Tribal citizens also offer their beautiful, handcrafted jewelry at Northwest Native Expressions. The gallery has a nice selection of hand-engraved silver and also offers gold through special order. Beaded and turquoise jewelry abound

in the form of earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets and more. The selection is small and very selective, showcasing the beautiful work of Native Americans who are passing on their timeless craft to future generations in hopes that these ancient art forms will not be lost. Each piece of handcrafted artwork at the gallery is unique, whether it be in how it was painted or where the wood

was collected. When something is handcrafted, each one is just a little different. There are artwork pieces to suit every interest and prices to suit every budget — anyone can take home a little Native American art of their own. The store also offers promotions and discounts from time to time on its website and inside the gallery.

Discovery Memory Care provides care, support and advocacy Discovery Memory Care specializes in supporting people with memory care needs, but the center has also taken an active role in community education and fundraising efforts that go toward finding a cure for Alzheimer’s, a disease that affects more than 6 million people nationwide. Discovery Memory Care was the top corporate fundraiser for the 2010 and 2011 Walk to End Alzheimer’s held in Bremerton. And this year the North Olympic Peninsula was awarded a walk site by the Alzheimer’s Association. It will be held in Sequim Sept. 29. The business will host a silent auction and spaghetti feed on May 19 to raise money prior to the walk. All funds for the feed, auction and walk will go to the Alzheimer’s Association for research. “We believe passionately that we need to find an end to Alzheimer’s,” says the center’s Executive Director Sheila Linde, who notes that the number of people effected by the disease is skyrocketing. In addition to fundraising, Discovery Memory Care works to de-stigmatize Alzheimer’s and other related dementias by holding support groups, offering free memory screening and getting their residents out into the community. Inside, staff strive to create a home-like environment for residents. Centrally located in the heart of

Seated are Sheila Linde, Executive Director; Cheryl Armitage, Administrative Assistant; Pam Scott, Community Relations Director. Not pictured is Melea Arnold, Dietary Services Director.

Sequim, the assisted living community works from a “social model rather than a medical model,” says Pam Scott, community relations director. Family and friends are welcome to visit any time day or night, just as they would be welcomed to do at their loved one’s home. Discovery’s common areas provide

comfort for day to day living. The grounds are complimented by a serene courtyard, covered in a sunsetter shade where residents can rest, relax and socialize from benches and patio chairs. There’s even a raised bed for gardening. In order to retain some independence, residents are always encouraged by staff to do as much for themselves as possible. “Independence keeps them healthier and happier,” Pam says Pam and Sheila work with each family to help make the transition into assisted living easier on them. “It’s so hard for family members because often their loved one can’t make the decision on their own,” Pam says. “But we find that residents usually come out of isolation when they move in here. They are with their peers, and family members can see that they are happier.” Discovery Memory Care is part of Tacoma-based Senior Services of America, which operates 23 retirement, assisted living and memory care communities. In addition to their residential offerings, Discovery Memory Care also provides adult day care and respite care for family caregivers who need a little break. Many scheduling options are available. Call 360-683-7047 to find out how they can assist you, or for more information about the NOP Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Discover the difference! Active. Engaged. Really living.

Stop by and see for yourself why Discovery Memory Care is the best choice for you and your family! We are a professionally managed assisted living community specializing in the care of adults with all forms of memory loss, for long term care, respite stays, and adult day care.

The team of professionals at H&R Block love doing your taxes You go to a doctor for a medical concern and go to the mechanic for an automotive problem, so when it comes to taxes, it makes sense that you go to the tax experts. H&R Block, which has an office in Port Angeles and Sequim, has plenty of experts on staff who enjoy doing what many people dread each year — taxes. “We’re pretty passionate about this crazy industry,” says Barbara Jaksha, an Enrolled Agent at the Port Angeles office at 1404 E.

To keep credentials up-to-date and to stay aware of the always changing tax laws, tax preparers must complete continuing education each year. Three of the tax advisors — Barbara, Wanda and Jean Cain are also certified as Enrolled Agents. An Enrolled Agent is a tax practitioner who can represent people before the Internal Revenue Service, explains Port Angeles Office Leader Ricki Wilhelm, These agents have received the technical certification that recognizes their expertise in taxation laws and authorizes them to represent taxpayers before the IRS for

audits, collections and appeals.

Olympic Game Farm celebrates 40 years of fun for families For more than 40 years, Olympic Game Farm has provided an opportunity for visitors from all over the world to learn and observe wildlife, igniting countless imaginations. Olympic Game Farm is the place to get face to face and experience wildlife at close range, offering visitors the opportunity to really see a tiger’s stripes, a Kodiak bear’s huge size, watch zebras graze in a field or to get slobbered by a buffalo!  With more than 200 animals on site, the driving tour leaves visitors with vivid memories of these amazing creatures; experiences which, at first are hard to imagine, but become pleasantly surprising. Friendly llamas and yak eat bread from your hand, clowning bears stand up and wave and the elk and buffalo peacefully graze in the pastures. Olympic Game Farm worked exclusively for Walt Disney Studios for 28 years, filming at the farm and on the Olympic Peninsula, as well as on many

different set locations. A few popular titles produced with the past animal actors include Charlie the Lonesome Cougar, The Incredible Journey, White Wilderness and Grizzly Adams television and movie series. After the death of Walt and Roy Disney, Disney Studios began to move away from the nature films that had been so dear to

Walt’s heart. In 1972, with the approval of the Disney Studios for using the Disney name, Olympic Game Farm Inc. was opened to the public. Founders Lloyd and Catherine Beebe retired from the filming industry and focused solely for caring for their animal actors, concentrating on offering “in need” captive bred animals a new and loving home. Lloyd Beebe passed along his trait, his dedication and his love for wildlife to his grandson Robert Beebe, who has taken over the role of president and operator of the Olympic Game Farm since 2008. Along with the driving tour, Olympic Game Farm offers a new “Mini Tour,” which includes a petting farm, freshwater aquarium, a guided tour through the education area and historical studio barn.

Park View Villas is at it again Park View Villas is proud of its reputation for finding ways to give back to the community. “The community has supported us for the last 21 years and we are thrilled to return that support,” says Executive Director John LeClerc. From throwing a dinner for Olympic Senior Game participants in August to Santa pictures in December, the assisted living and retirement community hosts community events throughout the year to raise money for local organizations. In April, Park View Villas will partner with the Sequim Senior Activity Center to host a dinner gala and auction fundraiser to help the center raise funds for a new building in Sequim.

Extensive knowledge, relaxed atmosphere at Certified Hearing People suffering from hearing loss can depend on the staff at Certified Hearing to help them select and maintain an instrument that will greatly improve their hearing. Certified Hearing, in business since 1997, is locally owned by the mother-and-daughter team of Lois Lato and Brenda Haltom. The business is independent of any franchise, which allows them to carry a wide range of brands so clients can find what best fits their individual needs. Certified Hearing’s extensive knowledge in a wide range of hearing instruments allows them to assist people that are new to the area with device upkeep, or to help people who are just visiting the area. The atmosphere at Certified Hearing is easy going and relaxed — you won’t find high pressure sales tactics at this business. “We genuinely care for our clients,” Lois says. “We treat hearing loss. If we find our patients require medical attention, we refer them on to the appropriate office prior to audio testing and fitting of the hearing instruments.” The office accommodates almost all brands of hearing instruments, offers a full price range and many levels of technology. Digital circuitry is one type of technology that amplifies speech signals without over amplifying background noise.

As newlyweds their hope was to start a family and a Domino’s Pizza store in what they felt was one of the most beautiful places they had ever seen. “I was determined to work hard, make great pizzas, give excellent service and be an asset to the community,” Robert says. A lot has changed in the last 26 years. The Dosters have raised two great kids, made wonderful friends, opened a second Domino’s in Sequim, and that yellow Datsun is long gone. But some things, Robert says, will never change. He is still striving to make great pizzas, give excellent service and be an asset to the Port Angeles community. The menu at Domino’s Pizza has expanded to include many exciting choices in pizza toppings, sauces and cheeses. It now includes sandwiches, pasta, chicken, three types of stuffed cheesy bread, as well as a number of delicious side dishes and desserts. With all of his products, Robert strives for exceptional quality and taste. His menu items are carefully crafted by experts with years of training and experience. “I don’t use random ingredients purchased off of a national restaurant supply company’s truck,” he says.

From left to right: Mike Sutton, Chris McKee, Sequim Domino’s Manager Tristian Fricker and Robert Doster, owner of Domino’s Pizza.

“All my ingredients — from meats to cheeses to fresh vegetables — are supplied by carefully chosen producers and handled with great care to ensure peak freshness and flavor.” Domino’s pizza sauce is made from vine ripened tomatoes. The dough is crafted by trained experts. Everything is produced with quality in mind, he says. Robert’s stores receive multiple deliveries each week. This means that customers are assured consistent freshness and peak flavor.

In keeping with his goal to “be an asset to the community,” Robert has given away more than $50,000 in scholarships to local graduating seniors and thousands of pizzas to local causes. “I take pride in the fact that my profits and my employee wages are put back into the local economy,” Robert says. He has loved living and doing business in Port Angeles and Sequim for the past 26 years and says he really looks forward to what the future holds

No job too big or small for the crew at Angeles Machine Works The employees at Angeles Machine Works can fix just about anything that you can break. Brothers Randy and Steve Frick, both professional welders and machinists, own and operate the complete machine and welding shop in Port Angeles. Their crew includes Jon Hutto and Jeremy Sheilds who both have many years of experience in the trade, and Nathan Dawley who is an apprentice with an impressive mechanical background. The shop provides high-quality services for marine, commercial, industrial and residential applications. The shop was founded in 1918 as Black-

smith & Auto Repair Shop. Through the years the shop went through many changes and owners, until 1968 when the Fricks’ father started Angeles Machine Works. “No job is too big or small, including repairing and welding heavy equipment such as bulldozers,” Randy says. This team of professionals performs cast iron, aluminum and stainless steel welding, steel fabrication and custom machining of parts for a wide variety of jobs. Angeles Machine Works can produce machine parts in virtually any configuration, using a broad range of materials, including metal, plastic, alloy and brass

— and they work with their customers to solve all of their machining problems. “We are very dedicated to our customers and providing great service,” Randy says. Angeles Machine Works repairs lawn mowers and motorcycles, rethreads bolts, makes pins and bushings, piston rods, machines automotive heads and truck flywheels. “We have made and repaired a little bit of everything in the 43 years we’ve been in business,” Steve says. They have repaired boat shafts, couplings, rudders and boat masts, and even a fishing pole here and there. The Fricks pride themselves on deliver-

General Ophthalmologist focuses practice on cosmetic enhancements

Dr. Betsy Flodstrom on her property near Port Angeles.

Educated at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, with a residency at the University of Washington, Dr. Betsy Flodstrom now focuses her talents as a board certified Ophthalmologist on helping people feel better about themselves. Betsy joined Dr. Harold G. Everett’s practice at 1205 E. Front St. in Port Angeles in 1999. She has more than a decade of experience administering Botox treatments to diminish or erase forehead wrinkles, brow wrinkles, crow’s feet and fine lines around the lips. When asked what people gain from the procedure, Betsy says the main thing is confidence. “After a treatment they feel refreshed and better about how their face looks,” she says. An added benefit is that people usually love the relaxed feel of the areas that have been injected. Botox works by softening wrinkles which, especially for those who have really etched-in wrinkles like a furrow between the brow, can yield amazing results. A furrow can be caused by stress and it often makes people look angrier than they feel, Betsy says. “What we’re finding is that for people who regularly receive Botox, it allows collagen to rebuild in those areas and reduced wrinkles in the future,” she notes. Betsy believes in the results and benefits of Botox — she even uses it on herself. Botox treatments all begin with an initial consult to determine what is desired by the client and how much Botox should be administered. “People can usually see results in seven days

and those results last three to six months,” Betsy says. Another procedure that Betsy offers is eyelid surgery that is considered a medical procedure for people whose droopy lids interferes with vision, and considered a cosmetic procedure for men or women who feel like they have extra skin around the eyes that make them look tired or older than they would like. A consultation with Betsy may include a physical exam, history and visual field test to determine which procedure is appropriate. Both eyelid surgeries are short and performed in the office with local anesthesia. Latisse is another cosmetic enhancement Betsy offers at her practice. It is the first FDAapproved topical medication used to make eyelashes longer, thicker and darker. After an assessment and one follow-up consult, patients are cleared to buy the product on a walk-in basis. In addition to her medical practice, Betsy enjoys snow skiing, hiking, photography, international travel, gardening, and is the mom of four busy boys ages 5, 7, 9 and 10. She and her husband are both Port Angeles natives and knew that the North Olympic Peninsula is where they wanted to raise their kids. All four boys attend Olympic Christian School.
