I am always envious of those fingers all the way to the gas station people who have their spring cleaning because the dial has been on empty for done is March, and their taxes done too long.

Per usual my only try, and learn to embrace the husband and I have procrastinated our occasional dirty house, which we trade taxes with the common phrase “we’ll for good memories or experiences.

For me, these are the types of things that I embrace and often put before whatever else is going on at the moment. Life is for the living, and what is a life without

Photos: 2014 Shamrock Soccer Tournament

T

he 3rd Annual Shamrock Soccer Tournament took place this year on March 14-16. This is a Southeast Alaska invitational tournament for adult soccer players. The tournament is coed and played indoors. Given that the tournament falls around St. Patrick’s Day, the event is known as the Shamrock Tournament. Six teams battling it out over six games for the chance of being crowned champions and in the end, Petersburg beat the Juneau yellow team in overtime with a score of 3-2. Along with the annual 7-A-Side tournament in late May and the Competitive League tournaments in mid August, the Shamrock Tournament is organized by the Capital City Soccer League (CCSL). Increasing adult soccer opportunities in Juneau and Southeast Alaska is what the CCSL is all about. For more information, check out their website at: www.juneausoccer.com

not cleaned regularly. A light detergent and a soft brush with a garden hose will easily clean the deck. Composite decking can be fastened to the structure in multiple ways. Face fastening is the most common which is basically a fastener through the face of the material into the structure. Composites can also be fastened with hidden fasteners or clips. Hidden fasteners are fasteners that are placed on the side of the material and into the structure. Clips are used to grip the groove on the side of the composite (must be ordered with these grooves) and fastened to the structure. Spacing is key when using composite. You can find special spacing tools to create hidden fasteners or clip fasteners, making spacing nearly automatic. When face fastening a composite material I will use a carpenters pencil to space the decking which gives it about 3/8 inch spacing. When using a composite decking, the structure or deck joists need to be spaced less than when you are using a natural wood or treated wood decking, at about

12” on center which will add some material costs and labor costs.

The fastening on natural wood decks can be done exactly like the composite decking either face fastened or hidden fastened. Both ways of fastening are the

same as the composite decking, although the use of clips is not common with wood decking. Another advantage lumber has over composite wood is that it can span a greater distance between deck joists saving on structural materials and labor. But this can be offset by the fact that natural lumber may have warping, cupping, or crowning sometimes making it a challenge to work with. Pressure treated and Sunwood (surface treated lumber) material is also a popular option. Neither pressure treated lumber or Sunwood receives stain or finish well, so what you see is what you get. It is possible to paint, but it can only be painted with the right preparation using a water based acrylic latex paint. Membrane decks are the great idea in this climate especially a second story deck since the underside of the deck can be used as a covered patio or deck below. Membrane decks must be maintained and cleaned regularly to allow them to be in the weather for many years. Continued on Page 10

I spoke of fastening systems above (face, hidden, and clip) but the fasteners themselves are as important as the fastening systems. Some fasteners are not compatible with pressure treated lumber and the chemicals in the lumber will eat or corrode many fasteners resulting in a failing deck. Stainless steel fasteners are recommended for pressure treated lumber. Stainless steel fasteners are also recommended for cedar because other fasteners tend to stain or discolor the cedar. I have also used hot dipped galvanized and aluminum hidden fasteners to fasten cedar successfully. Composite decking has many composite-specific fasteners and though they’re compatible with composite, be sure to confirm the fasteners are compatible with the structure the deck will be fastened to, usually pressure treated lumber.

Gluten Free in Juneau? Y

ou may have been wondering as you skim the aisles of our local groceries what the label gluten-free means. Because it is everywhere! With the Paleo lifestyle and books like Wheat Belly, it’s as if gluten is screaming at us from the package labels. The word gluten is translated from the Latin word glue and is a protein found in foods processed from wheat and other grains including barley and rye. Gluten is what gives bread products their elastic smooth texture. Unfortunately, scientific studies have shown as a result of highly processed wheat, gluten sensitivity is on the rise and is a cause for fatigue, skin, autoimmune, and brain disorders. Those with Celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in the small intestine. Over time, this reaction produces inflammation that damages the small intestine’s lining and prevents absorption of some nutrients. The idea of giving up wheat products can be quite a sad concept, but there is a happy ending to this story, laced with chocolate and cookies,

I promise. Within the last few years, there has been a significant increase in demand for gluten-free alternatives to our favorite dishes. As a person who enjoys buying local, when I decided to go gluten-free, I thought it would be a huge struggle. I envisioned myself up late at night searching the internet for groceries on Amazon.com as a little part of me died inside, but I didn’t want to eat flavorless cardboard food either. To my relief, local businesses such as Rainbow Foods, Wild Oven Bakery and Pie in The Sky Bakery and Cafe have provided some healthy and delicious alternatives. For those looking to find gluten-free products for cooking at home, Rainbow Foods natural market offers a variety of products such as pasta, flour, cereal and breads. One thing I found interesting is the lunch buffet offered Monday through Friday, 11am-2pm. The

By Jennifer Wilson

menu is updated daily on their website so you can easily check what is offered before you go. The menu includes several gluten-free options and at least one gluten-free baked good every day. Owner David Ottoson makes it a priority to address the needs of his customers. “Part of our mission is to support people in their health and wellness, and if their health is compromised by eating gluten, then we would like to offer an alternative. Based on what I’ve heard from many customers, they tell me they feel better after cutting wheat out of their diet. I’ve been doing this for 30 years and we have had different diet waves come through, but I don’t think this is a fad, this is more of long term decision for people,” said David. Pie in the Sky bakery is a little gem located next to the Canvas downtown. It is definitely a place to indulge guilt free. Andrea Mogil is an expert at making her dishes not only edible for different types of allergies, but delicious too.

My favorite is the Death by Chocolate which is so good, I don’t believe most people who order it even know it is gluten-free. “I first became aware of the need for gluten-free items while working in the Rainbow Foods deli kitchen. There were many different dietary preferences among customers, and we did our best to accommodate all of them. When I opened my own bakery, I included gluten-free (as well as dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, etc...) treats and drinks so that everyone could get a little something special to make their days happier,” said Andrea. I asked Andrea why it is important for businesses to accommodate those with food allergies and sensitivities. She believes that

whether people are going gluten-free because of Celiac disease, an allergy or intolerance, or just to see if it improves their health, the availability of gluten-free items help people meet their needs while satisfying their wants. It also promotes a greater awareness of food, ingredients, and health. “My gluten-free items have always been popular with customers whether or not they need to avoid gluten. Since I tend to make things which are even better without flour and are yet more flavorful from their basic ingredients rather than flour substitutes, everyone seems to love them,” said Andrea. Some of the store packaged breads tend to be devoid of flavor, but the Wild Oven Bakehouse produces a wide variety of flavorful breads and products that are available at Rainbow Foods, IGA-Foodland and Superbear. For those looking to purchase Wild Oven’s gluten-free products, Rainbow Foods is the only location that carries their gluten-free bread, crackers, granola, and cookies. Daniel Martin, the owner, takes great pride in delivering tasty and nutritious breads using a traditional approach. “I built the Wild Oven Bakehouse because I wanted to make the best tasting, healthiest breads possible. We make all of our breads with wild sourdough culture, an ancient tradition that harnesses the power of fermentation by wild cultures of yeast and lacto-bacteria. I believe it is largely because modern people have strayed from these (and many other) time-tested methods of preparing food, that we suffer from many our health problems. Grains like wheat are inherently hard to digest. When they are not properly prepared by sourdough fermentation, they do not nourish our bodies. Many of my customers have told me that while they can’t tolerate “store bread,” they were delighted to find that our organic sourdough bread treated them just fine. Our ancestors have been making naturally fermented breads for over 5,000 years and it is hard to believe that a food once regarded as the “staff of life” is inherently harmful to human health,” said Daniel. I would like to mention that although these companies offer gluten-free products, their facilities are not certified gluten-free. It was advised by all owners, those with Celiac or severe intolerances, to avoid products from any mixed-use kitchen. The goal of these owners is to cater to as many customers as possible, and is an excellent example for other local kitchens to follow. That being said, I strongly suggest readers to give credit to businesses that take steps to accommodate those with dietary or lifestyle restrictions. One of the most amazing things about living in Juneau is the diversity in our local culture. We have people who have come clear across the world bringing new ideas and innovation to our town. I believe if we keep an open mind, not only do we learn from each other’s differences but we grow stronger as a community, with or without gluten.

Bread Bonanza Ingredients:

Recipe

Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread (via bread machine) Makes 1 loaf 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour, or spelt (I love to grind mine fresh in a heavy duty blender) 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour 1Tlbspoon olive oil, coconut oil or organic butter 3T honey, agave syrup or maple syrup 2T lemon juice, apple cider vinegar or whole milk organic yogurt 1 1/3 cup water, I like to use warm water but not necessary Morning additions (or after at least 12-20 hours, a post-it comes in handy pre –coffee) 2 ½ teaspoon dry active yeast 1 ½ teaspoon salt (I like to also make additions that I like to add, fresh alfalfa sprouts, flax meal, wheat germ, or other not more than a half cup) You also might need to add a bit of water or flour if you think it looks a bit dry or wet.

without ”yoga mat petro chemicals” that commercial breads use like the Subway chain recently came into heat for. But these are used in most commercial bread products from hot dog buns to wonder bread and all in-between. With the breaking down of gluten in the wheat you get a softer and easier to digest loaf. I also love this recipe because I’ve made it ten different ways and still get a great result. So go ahead dust off that unused wedding present, or thrift store buy, you will need to know depending on the brand how they formulate the recipes, usually it’s either water in first and flour last or the opposite, no manual, well you can easily get online and they will have a recipe or more in the manual and you can adjust the recipe as follows. Amber King can be emailed at accereek@gmail.com

Now you can either run another dough cycle and shape and rise your own loafs in pans (if you do a double batch, or run the full bread machine cycle (mine I can even delay it to have it just done when I come home that night, which is the best way to walk in the door and smell fresh bread) If you cook it in the bread machine, let it rest for 15 minutes and invert the pan on a baking rack, then let rest another 20 or so minutes before slicing. This is really a great sandwich bread and is pennies on the dollar compared to buying a loaf of whole wheat in the store. You can make a double batch and freeze one too. Have fun and think spring. From my table to yours, Amber King
