Seafood Gala and Fundraiser Coming Up


ickets are going quickly for Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation’s Seafood Gala and Fundraiser atop Mt. Roberts on Saturday, September 7th. “If you haven’t purchased yours yet, get them on-line or call the JACC as soon as possible,” said Foundation board president Holly Cerne. “You won’t want to miss this fun and worthy event!” The Foundation has been planning the event for months. “The menu is set, decorations complete, and auction items selected. Now, we’re getting ready to get dressed up for a good cause,” said Cerne. “We hope to raise more than $40,000 to provide training and certification for Bartlett’s nurses in conducting sexual assault exams. They’ve been without this important certification for far too long, and it’s time to change that.” For the Gala, celebrity chef Jesse Ziff

hat is the first thing you see before entering a friend’s home? Well it is probably their front door. Have you seen your front door? Is it inviting? There are many types of doors on the market and a variety of hardware to make entry doors more attractive. Attractive entry doors come in all shapes and sizes and are available in a variety of materials. I have seen small, or what seemed small entry doors that fit the home just perfectly, to large mostly glass entry doors, to large solid wood doors that took more than two carpenters to hang that would make your jaw drop. Although most of us have a budget and front entry door should be efficient, attractive, and

affordable. We can’t spent tens of thousands of dollars on a front entry door or all the doors within a home but we can make them look like a million dollars. Entry Doors Typically the three types of materials a front entry door can be constructed of include steel, fiberglass, and solid wood. While solid wood is very attractive and some homes just call for a nice wood entry door they can also be the most expensive. Wood front doors are typically not energy rated as well but the look can be worth losing a couple of points on your energy rating. I have installed solid African mahogany wood doors

Thereafter, each slide open will ever so slightly loosen the air tightness of the door.

Wrap the clean rough opening with an ice and water shield. Start at the bottom and work your way up the header with the wrap. Create a pan at the base of the door so that if water finds its way under the threshold of the door it will not find its way to the interior. Install the door and use spray-in foam to seal all the way around the door. Any air leakage will result in a less efficient door installation and negate any efficiency the door has.

short list to get you started: GETTING TO AND FROM SCHOOL SAFELY: The basic guidelines are to have children walk with an adult whenever possible, and walk with friends. Choose a safe route and insist your child never take short-cuts. Remind your child that play such as pushing and chasing is not safe while walking along a roadway. With the shorter daylight hours and dark rainy days we have here in Alaska, make sure your child wears clothing that makes them easily visible to drivers. They may need to carry a flashlight or wear reflective gear. Review traffic safety for pedestrians and remind them that not all drivers are paying attention, parked cars may have drivers who are getting ready to move, and corners and driveways often have blindspots. If driving, make sure you are following all traffic regulations and have your child in the appropriate safety restraint for his or her age, weight and height. If your child rides the bus, review safety protocol with the driver. Teach your child to recognize adults who can be safe – such as the crossing guard, and how to avoid and alert others to potentially unsafe strangers. REDUCE ACCIDENTS ON THE PLAYGROUND: Check your child’s clothing to make sure there are no cords or drawstrings that could get caught on play equipment and especially anything that might cause strangulation including necklaces and bike helmets – in winter forego scarves for neck warmers and clip mittens instead of using a string. Ensure the school is following guidelines for proper playground equipment and maintenance and that proper adult supervision is always in place during use. Teach children that shoving and crowding on play equipment is not safe. PROPER SPORTS EQUIPMENT:

If your child plays sports, make sure they are properly fitted and using protective gear appropriate to their sport. A good quality helmet is worth the extra expense. Make sure coaches and trainers are up-to-date on how to prevent common injuries and that they have the supplies and know-how to recognize and treat them quickly. In addition, do not overload backpacks your child carries every day. BULLYING: This is becoming an increasing concern for parents. It is important that your child’s school have training for staff and programs for kids to help prevent, recognize and address issues as they arise. Bullying may show up as physical aggression, verbal teasing, abusive language or purposely leaving someone out. Bullying may come from peers or even adults and older children the school expects to be supervisors. Make sure your child knows that you will not accept this type of behavior from them, even in retaliation. Your child should understand that telling you or another authority figure at school (principle, teacher, lunch room helper, etc.) is important to keep them and others safe.


Of course the day starts at home. Proper nutrition, adequate sleep and an a good morning routine will ensure your child is well rested, not feeling rushed or stressed and therefore more alert and better able to be careful.

e typically suggest being well planned when discussing a remodel to cut down on unexpected costs and to keep the project flowing at a constant rate; however, this project went a little differently. What started as a small siding repair, soon turned into a window replacement project and rot repair. Sound familiar? We can all relate with the pressing threat of rot in Juneau... The guest bathroom in this home was not originally scheduled to be completed in this phase but after the back wall of the bathroom was compromised due to rot, it became evident that moving the remodel timeline up to coordinate with the repairs being made to this area of the home would be in the best interest of the homeowner. While

the expedited timing of this remodel was a

bit unexpected, this bathroom had served

its purpose over the years and was due for a new lease on life. The original soft gray tones of the wallpaper, countertop, and flooring were ready for a change and with the homeowners’ requests of providing ample storage space, improved lighting, ample countertop space, and dual sinks in mind, we set off to create a new bathroom! This room has a uniquely high ceiling in comparison to the small floor space so one of the first items we addressed was how to make the room appear wider and larger than it actually is. By floating the vanity and toilet up off of the floor, a larger uninterrupted floor plane was achieved and is more proportionate in comparison to the height of the room. The verticality of the space was also offset by the horizontal

line of the vanity and mirror design. An

inlaid strip of metallic tile also highlights the continual floor space from wall to wall and even ties into the brushed nickel hardware and fixtures found throughout. The modern architecture of this home is clean lined so the materials chosen for the interior reflect this style as well. The

cabinetry, by Showplace Wood Products, is in a modern flat panel maple door style. The stain color of the cabinetry ties into the natural fir tongue and groove ceiling and brings in an added sense of warmth to the space. Keeping with the color palette found throughout the rest of the home,

the large scale, porcelain floor tile is in charcoal and is paired with a 6x18 striated wall tile from the same tile collection. These darker elements were then contrasted with white plumbing fixtures and the white Thassos Marble countertop. While the client originally requested dual sinks, we proposed a single, oversized sink that could accommodate two people on occasion since this room functions more as a powder room more often than a guest bathroom these days. Lastly, a strip of color-changing LED lighting was added to the base of the

floating vanity cabinet. This unexpected pop of color highlights the darker space below the vanity and even serves as a night light for guests! While the rot that caused this project was unfortunate and rather unrewarding to repair, this bathroom remodel brought in some personal enjoyment and now serves as the silver lining for the whole ordeal!

o we’re all back to school, getting in a fall routine, working on new skills, new teachers and new family routines Contributed we somehow happily by Amber King abandoned over such an amazing Alaskan summer. We have been working hard on making foods from scratch in as simple and healthy ingredients as possible while letting our girls choose their lunch offerings and packing them the night before and also learning what ingredients scientific meanings are, their origin and deciding if we want to eat them…. There is a new awareness in our house on GMOs as well, genetically modified or GM ingredients are pretty hard to avoid in the American diet. While most industrialized

nations have banned them citing health concerns, we produce and consume the vast majority in the United States. While our national health has declined, child-

make conscientious decisions on their own. We don’t want dinner out of a box, unless it’s our garden window box, and we vote each time we go to the store.

Healthy lunch options • Fun sandwiches • Peanut butter and jelly • Turkey cheese roll ups • Tortilla wraps • Home made burritos • Plums • Organic apples sliced - put back in shape with rubber band around them to prevent browning.

• Leftovers • Sushi • Granola bars • Veggie booty • Cheese chunks • Cucumber and celery sticks • Salad in a jar • Noodles with cheese • Plain yogurt, jam • Hard boiled eggs

hood hunger and infant mortality is at an all-time high. As a mother and the main “purchaser” in our household it’s important for my girls to be aware of what they are eating, where it comes from and to

• Baby tomatoes • Mini bagels and smoked salmon • Half avocados • Brown rice and soy sauce • Hummus and chips • Pretzels • Water or vitamin C powder packets make great drinks

Whether clipping coupons or taking advantage of gas mile discounts stores want to know what you’re buying too. My favorite new recipe is a Garden variation on Pesto, especially this time of year

W W W.

it’s great to start processing your greens before fall rains dampen their spirits…. And yours also. Pesto is great made ahead and frozen in an ice cube tray or silicone baking cups, wrap individually once frozen and date them so you use them within three months. Fresh Cilantro Leaf Pesto with Pasta from the new NYR Organic Healing Foods Cookbook is a great way to harness the healing power of plants in all your meals. Cilantro is very detoxifying and a good chelating agent, helping rid the body of harmful heavy metals from the body, also improves memory, aids digestion, and also protects the heart and blood vessels.
