Shopping locally has benefits by PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Shopping locally this holiday season can benefit communities across the North Olympic Peninsula in a wide variety of ways. Holiday shopping for many people starts the day after Thanksgiving and continues until the final days before Christmas. While many people may shop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, those days still account for a relatively small amount of the hundreds of billions of dollars that are spent each holiday season in retail stores across the nation. Shoppers now have a bevy of options at their disposal as they embark on holiday shopping season. BUYING LOCAL BENEFITS YOUR LOCAL ECONOMY Throughout the years numerous studies have shown that independent, locally owned retailers return a far greater percentage of their revenue into their local economies than national chain stores. One of the biggest ways local business owners reinvest their revenue in the local economy is creating jobs for area residents. While national chains also create jobs, such jobs only benefit your community if the chains are located within your community.

If your closest mall is a considerable drive away, chances are the chains within that mall are not employing many of your fellow community members. Local businesses in your community are more likely to employ residents of your town. SHOPPING LOCAL CAN RESULT IN UNIQUE GIFTS In addition to the economic benefits of buying local, shoppers may find merchandise made by local craft people is more unique than mass-produced items found on the shelves of national retailers. Also local businesses cater to customer needs, wants and requests. Many businesses will even special order items for customers. AREA BUSINESSES PROVIDE A MORE PERSONAL TOUCH Buying from national chains has its advantages, but customer service is not always one of them. Should your loved ones encounter problems with their gift that requires assistance, they might be forced to wait on the phone for extended periods of time as they and thousands of others wait for customer service representatives to answer their calls. Local businesses do not deal with nearly the volume of customers as national retailers and, therefore, are capable of addressing concerns more quickly and

personally than large chains. SAVE YOUR TIME AND GAS MONEY Another benefit to shopping locally is that can save time and money since you will not be required to travel to stores a great distance from your home. Purchasing gas, higher sales tax rates and losing precious time traveling to a mall or shopping center sometimes can offset any savings on gifts.

. peninsula home fund

‘Hand up, not a handout’ Peninsula Home Fund offers a chance to help neighbors in need by PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

$3,266,201 to help those in need on the Peninsula.

Because of the generosity of readers in Clallam and Jefferson counties, $255,468 was contributed to the Peninsula Daily News’ “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund in 2015. The funds have allowed Olympic Community Action Programs to help thousands of area residents this year with a variety of needs that otherwise might have not been met. Of the 720 donations given to the Home Fund in 2015, nearly 80 donors gave throughout the year. All of the donors join the PDN in delivering hope to thousands of individuals and families, many with young children, who suddenly face an emergency situation and can’t find help elsewhere. Everyone who donates — whether it be $1 or $1,000 — is a Home Fund partner who is helping forge a stronger Peninsula community. In the past 28 years, the Home Fund has distributed

Until New Year’s Eve, the Peninsula Home Fund — a safety net for Peninsula residents when there is nowhere else to turn — is seeking contributions for its 29th annual holiday fundraising campaign. Peninsula Daily News will publish stories every Wednesday and Sunday during the campaign listing contributors and reporting on how the fund works. Peninsula Home Fund is a unique nonprofit program: • No money is deducted by the Peninsula Daily News for administration fees or any other overhead. Every penny goes to OlyCAP — nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs — the No. 1 emergencycare agency on the Peninsula. The money goes to help the most vulnerable members of our community, from infants to families to seniors.

Contributions are fully IRS tax-deductible. 100 percent of your caring donation goes to Olympic Community Action Programs to help children, seniors and families in Clallam and Jefferson Counties. Written acknowledgment will be mailed to donors by Jan. 31, 2017. Questions? Call 360-417-3500.

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS


<< HOME FUND continued from Page 20

Please note: Because of heavy community demands, the loss of grants because of the economy and recent cuts in government funding, OlyCAP beginning in 2012 was permitted to use 10 percent — 10 cents of every dollar donated — to pay for the vital programs and services for Home Fund clients. (Previously there were no deductions.) OlyCAP has kept it in the area of 8 percent to 10 percent, a fraction of the average overhead of other nonprofits. • The Home Fund is not a welfare program. Money is used to give families and individuals from Port Townsend to Forks, from Quilcene and Brinnon to Sequim, Joyce and La Push “a hand up, not a handout” to get through an emergency situation. Assistance, which usually averages less than $100, is limited to one time in a 12-month period. The average amount of help this year has been $68.17 per person and $195.32 per household. Money from the fund is used for hot meals for seniors in Jefferson and Clallam counties; warm winter coats for kids; home repairs for a low-income family; needed prescription drugs; dental work; safe, drug-free temporary housing; eyeglasses — the list goes on and on. All instances of help are designed to get an individual or family through a crisis — and back to self-sufficiency. Home Fund case managers often work with each individual or family to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. As needed, Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used in conjunction with money from churches, service clubs and other donors, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. The goal again: “a hand up, not a handout.” • All contributions are IRS tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law for the year in which the check is written. Your personal information is kept confidential. PDN does not rent, sell, give or otherwise share your address or information with anyone or make any other use of it. Since its beginning in 1989, the fund has relied on the support of Jefferson and Clallam residents. As of Oct. 31, $204,107 has been spent for Home Fund grants. And as we move into winter, the toughest period of the year, all of the remaining money — $51,361 — is expected to be spent by mid-January. Individuals, couples, businesses, churches, organizations and school groups set a new record for contributions in 2014 — $271,981 — smashing the old record of $268,389 set Dec. 31, 2013.

HOW TO APPLY To apply for a Peninsula Home Fund grant, contact one of the three OlyCAP offices: • OlyCAP’s Port Angeles office is at 228 W. First St., Suite J (Armory Square Mall); 360-452-4726. For Port Angeles and Sequim area residents. • Its Port Townsend office is at 823 Commerce Loop; 360-385-2571. For Jefferson County residents. • The Forks office is at 421 Fifth Ave.; 360-374-6193. For West End residents. Leave a voice mail message at any of the three numbers, and a Home Fund caseworker will phone you back. OlyCAP’s website: www.olycap.org; email: action@olycap.org. Dale Wilson, OlyCAP’s executive director, oversees disbursements from the Peninsula Home Fund.

HOW TO DONATE

The City of Port Angeles

encourages you to Choose Local this Holiday Season 1. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND

When you purchase at locally owned businesses, more money re-circulates in the Port Angeles community. Local businesses often patronize other local businesses, service providers and farms. On average, for every $100 spent at a locally owned business, up to $70 stays in the local economy, creating jobs and expanding the community’s tax base.

2. REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINTS

Buying from a local business helps the environment by conserving energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging. More goods within walking and biking distances create less pollution and traffic congestion.

3. CREATE MORE GOOD JOBS

Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally; in our community, they provide good jobs to local residents. Studies show that on average, locally-owned businesses create more jobs, provide better wages, benefits, and working conditions than national chains.

4. INVEST IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Creativity and entrepreneurship are what fuels America’s economic innovation and prosperity. The success of locally owned, independent businesses provides real-life examples to our young people, proving that they can stay in Port Angeles and prosper on their own terms.

5. CELEBRATE OUR EXCEPTIONAL COMMUNITY

Our one-of-a-kind, locally focused businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of Port Angeles. This is another reason why we choose to shop, eat and have fun in our home town.

6. ENJOY SELECTIONS GEARED TO LOCAL TASTES AND NEEDS

Local businesses have a wider array of uniquely focused products because they buy and sell based on what they know local customers want and need, creating more relevant choices.

7. BUY FROM A PERSON, NOT FROM A SCREEN

Local business owners and employees offer more personal service because they often have a high level of expertise and passion for the products they sell. They also tend to have a greater interest in getting to know their customers who are, after all, their neighbors.

8. INVEST IN OUR COMMUNITY’S FUTURE

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.

9. ENHANCE COMMUNITY SUPPORT

<< SAFETY TIPS continued from Page 22

Accidents can happen no matter what type of holiday decorating you’re doing, but stringing holiday lights around your home may be especially dangerous. This season, keep the following safety tips in mind when stringing lights so this season of celebration starts off safe and sound.

WORK WITH AT LEAST ONE PARTNER Never go it alone when stringing holiday lights. Make sure someone is there to hold the ladder steady as you climb up and down. Partnering up when stringing holiday lights allows decorators to use both of their hands to climb up ladders instead of using one of their hands to carry lights. Once they reach a point where it’s safe to hang lights, they can then have a helper hand them the lights. If possible, work in groups of three so someone can hold the ladder steady at all times.

INSPECT LIGHTS BEFORE HANGING Lights are not built to last forever, and over time holiday lights can suffer damage that has the potential to be dangerous. Wires can fray, and sockets can crack or break. Inspect lights and wires before hanging them, replacing any that pose a hazard.

PICK THE RIGHT CORD LENGTH Exterior holiday lights are often plugged into extension cords that extend to a shed or garage. Do not connect several extension cords to power holiday lights; instead, use just a single cord that’s lengthy enough to reach the outlet. Connecting extension cords is a fire hazard. In addition, make sure the amperage of the decorations matches the amperage rating of the extension cord, which can be found on the product label or possibly on the manufacturer’s website. Make sure the extension cord is not plugged into the power source while you are hanging the lights.

MAKE SURE LIGHTS DO NOT POSE A SAFETY HAZARD INSIDE Some people string holiday lights indoors as well. Lights might be hung on Christmas trees or along hallways. Such lights and the cords connecting them to power sources should never pose safety hazards, so make sure they are not lying on the floor. Staple lights to the wall and never place them beneath furniture or rugs. Lights can overheat when placed beneath rugs, and lights that are not properly secured to a wall can pose

certain dangers, including being tripping hazards.

HANG THE CORRECT LIGHTS When stringing lights, make sure you hang lights designated as exterior lights on the exterior of your home and those designated as interior lights inside your home. Hanging lights in the wrong places poses a fire hazard and creates additional safety concerns, so adhere to manufacturer instructions when stringing lights. Safety should reign supreme when stringing holiday lights around the house.

What’s your favorite HOLIDAY tradition? OLYMPIC PENINSULA RESIDENTS SHARE WAYS THEY CELEBRATE THE SEASON

“I don’t know how it started, but each year on Christmas Eve my wife, Patsene, and I and our two daughters Hallie and Chelsea would break out sleeping bags and sleep under the tree alongside the gifts and whatnot. The first year we did it, we were joined by all three dogs ... the cat, however, chose not to participate. Over the years the girls have opted for comfortable beds but Patsene and I still keep the tradition. The next day, along with the other standard Christmas Day stuff, I make sure we put on the “Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas” movie, a Jim Henson classic.” MICHAEL DASHIELL of Sequim, Sequim Gazette editor

“I like to run a smokehouse full of steelhead on Christmas Eve. Smoked steelhead makes a great Christmas present.” PAT NEAL of Forks, fishing guide

Holiday Traditions


>> HOLIDAY TRADITIONS continued from Page 24

“One holiday tradition we enjoy as a family is the great Christmas tree hunt. We go to our favorite local tree farm and scope out our favorite tree. Although our sons are grown up, if and when they can make it, they always like to help with the tree gathering and decorating. Then there are the 100 or so sugar cookies that need decorating. Long tedious process and sometimes with mixed results, we do it because it brings us together as a family. There is nothing more special to us than being together sharing past experiences and creating new ones. This holiday season, we wish everyone would put differences aside and treat each other with respect and work together to bring this country together. We also feel very grateful that we can do the holiday traditions we do as there are so many people that are less fortunate and should be remembered and helped whenever and wherever that may be.” STEVE PERRY of Port Angeles, general manager of the Peninsula Daily News, Sequim Gazette and Forks Forum “I have fond memories of going out to dinner on Christmas Eve with my parents dating back to as early as I can remember. We would often do a small Christmas Eve gift exchange, which was a tradition that dated back to my father’s family, probably 60 years. My wife, Jessica, and I have continued this tradition with my parents when we spend Christmas with them and have transitioned this tradition in our own way by enjoying going out to a good restaurant at least once during the holidays.” CHARLIE BUSH of Sequim, city manager of city of Sequim

TRADITION (noun)

“An inherited, established, or customary pattern of thought, action, or behavior (as a religious practice or a social custom).”

Source: “Merriam-Webster’s Learner’s Dictionary”

“For our family of four we each go choose one new ornament to add to the tree every year, we don’t care if it matches. Now, every year when we decorate the tree we each get to hang our ornaments that we have picked through the years and talk about which year each one is from and why we picked it. We also like to buy blank boring stockings and decorate them ourselves.” ANDREA PIETRAFESO of Port Angeles, mom and secretary at Hamilton Elementary School

“When I was young, decorating the tree was a special family tradition. Starting at a young age, my parents would take my brother and I to buy a decoration for the tree each year. It is a tradition that we have continued with my two sons and the entire family looks forward to it each year.

So you received a holiday gift plant from a coworker. NOW WHAT? by JEANETTE STEHR-GREEN, WSU-certified Clallam County Master Gardener

Whether the plant giver knew it or not, they have just presented you with the gift that keeps on giving! Holiday gift plants, with their eye-catching blossoms in the dead of winter, are sure to brighten the approaching holiday season; with the right care, they can survive to bloom again. Here are a few tips to help make that happen.

POINSETTIAS

POINSETTIAS

Poinsettias are native to the subtropics and don’t like cold. Exposure to low temperatures, even for a few minutes, can be damaging. Protect your poinsettia while transporting it home. When you get it home, carefully remove any protective sleeve and place it in bright, indirect light away from warm or cold drafts from radiators, air registers or open doors and windows. It is a common misconception that poinsettias are highly toxic to humans. They are not according to the California Poison Control Center, see http://tinyurl.com/ zvzr8lw for more information. They can, however, cause gastrointestinal symptoms if consumed; so place them out of the reach

of toddlers and pets. Overwatering is a major problem with poinsettias. Check the soil daily but water only when the soil is dry to the touch. Do not let your poinsettia sit in water; if it came in a decorative wrap, be sure to punch holes in the wrap so water can drain out. Do not fertilize a poinsettia when it is in bloom. If you want to keep your poinsettia as a houseplant, cut it back to about 8 inches in height in early spring. >> HOLIDAY PLANTS continued on Page 27

Poinsettias require a series of uninterrupted long nights to form flowers. To get them to bloom again for the holidays, in midSeptember start putting your poinsettia in a bright sunny spot during the day and total darkness for 12 to 13 hours every night. Continue this process until the plant starts to show color; it will take about 10 weeks. If you forget to put your poinsettia into the dark for even one night or if the plant has even a brief exposure to light during the night, flowering will be delayed. Be obsessive-compulsive with this regimen; set an alarm, if needed, to remind you when to move the plant in and out of darkness.

and fertilize your plant with an all-purpose houseplant fertilizer every two to four weeks. Pruning may be required during summer to keep plants bushy and compact.

The amaryllis, a subtropical plant native to the Americas, can be given as a potted plant (already with a flower bud present) or as a starter kit that includes a bulb, pot and soil. An amaryllis is a great gift for someone who is unable to get out to enjoy the holidays, as anticipation for the bloom grows greater each day after the large bud appears. If you receive a kit, follow the instructions on the container, planting the bulb so that the top one-third to one-half is above the soil. Water it thoroughly; do not water it again until the soil dries out or foliage appears. Place your amaryllis in a warm, sunny spot. Rotate the plant as it grows to keep it straight. When the first blossom opens, move the plant to a cool, shaded room (65 degrees). The flowers will open in progression, each lasting about a week. Remove the flowers as they fade to encourage the plant to put its energy into the bulb (not seeds).

Cut the amaryllis flower stalk to about two inches above the nose of the bulb after all flowers are spent. After flowering is over, place your amaryllis in a sunny window. Water it when the soil surface is nearly dry. Fertilize it every two to four weeks during the spring and summer. Good care is important because the plant is storing energy and forming flower buds in the bulb for next year. In nature, amaryllises typically flower after a rest period brought on by an extended drought. To encourage your amaryllis to bloom during the holidays, stop watering it in late August or early September. Move it to a cool place (50 degrees). After six weeks, remove any withered leaves and start watering it again. With luck, blooms will follow in six to eight weeks.

CHRISTMAS CACTUS

CHRISTMAS CACTUS

The Christmas cactus, a native of the high elevation jungles of Brazil, is a long-lived houseplant often inherited from a beloved family member. Once in flower, a Christmas cactus usually blooms for two to four weeks; individual flowers last from five to 10 days. To extend the life of the blooms, place your Christmas cactus in bright, indirect light with temperatures on the cool side (55 degrees); because Christmas cactuses can be sensitive to change, move the blooming cactus to where you want it and leave it there until it is through flowering. Water the plant when dry; do not fertilize it while it is in bloom. After blooming, some gardeners give their Christmas cactus a rest period, decreasing watering and moving it to a cooler spot. Regardless, in early spring, place your Christmas cactus in bright, indirect light; pinch back stem segments to encourage branching. Water it when dry and fertilize it with an all-purpose houseplant fertilizer every two weeks. Christmas cactus blooming is triggered by cooler temperatures and longer nights. To encourage blooming for the holidays, follow these steps: 1. In mid-September, stop fertilizing your Christmas cactus and decrease watering. 2. Move the plant to a cool room (about 50 degrees) where it will get bright, indirect light during the day but total darkness for 12 to 13 hours each night. 3. Once you see buds forming, move your cactus to where you wish to display it and leave it. Note: There are different species of blooming cactus, such as the Thanksgiving or Easter cactus. These plants look like Christmas cactuses but respond differently to environmental cues. It is difficult to get these other species to bloom during the holidays.

Paperwhites are members of the narcissus family but do not have the chilling requirement for flowering like other bulbs in this family. Paperwhites are usually given as a starter kit that includes bulbs, soil and a pot. Planting them so that they bloom for the holidays can be a fun family activity. While paperwhite bulbs can be planted in soil, they do well in containers filled with stones. Here’s how you do it. 1. Select a container that is three to four inches deep with no drain holes. 2. Spread one to two inches of stones along the bottom of the container. 3. Place the bulbs on top of the stones with the pointed end up. 4. Add stones to fill the gaps between the bulbs; the pointed tips of the bulbs should still be showing. 5. Add water to the base of the bulbs; do not submerge them. Place your planted paperwhites in a cool, dark room until roots appear. Then move the container to a bright, sunny window. Strong light will keep the leaves and stems shorter and less leggy. When the plants begin to flower, move the container to a cooler area with indirect light to extend the life of the blooms. As the water disappears, add more water up to the base of the bulbs. Note: Paperwhite blooms can be extremely fragrant; so be aware of this when selecting this gift for someone else and also in deciding where to place it in your home.

This style takes the modern approach to a highly specialized, highly individualized level and uses special effects and editing to convey humor or a sense of drama. For example, perhaps your holiday portrait could feature your family members forming a human ladder to place a star on the top of the tree. Look for a photographer with the savvy and technique to pull off these specific effects and dramatic images.

color and style that is clean, uniform and classic — something that would be set off by a holiday-themed border when you’re designing your card layout. In the end, the goal is to draw the eye to the face, which is what the classic style emphasizes more than anything.

What’s old is once again new. What better way to call back to the family roots that tie your loved ones together? You can express this by pulling from your family heritage. For example, you could dress your daughter in your childhood velvet dress. Or include your grandfather’s vintage toy train set as a prop. Some photographers specialize in black and white photography, as well as sepia effects. Of course, if you really want to try an authentic and timeless look, some photographers are experimenting with glass plate photography. Which style of photography is right for you and your family?
