2012 - 2013 Who’s Who
Owners Mitch and Linda Hebert say shopping at the Grocery Outlet is like a treasure hunt.
Grocery Outlet offers big savings
BY PATRICIA MORRISON COATE
Who doesn’t love a bargain? The folks at Sequim Grocery Outlet certainly do and want to pass along savings on some 8,000 items in stock to local customers. Owners Linda and Mitch Hebert opened their store in August 2011. Their positive experience with Grocery Outlet Bargain Market as owners in Sparks, Nev., for five years, and their desire to move back to their home state of Washington, inspired them to apply for the Sequim Grocery Outlet. Linda and Mitch live in Sequim and match the community’s culture and work ethic — and love to save their neighbors money! Now with one year behind them, the Heberts want all area residents to know what savvy SEQUIM GROCERY Sequim shoppers realize — Sequim Grocery Outlet OUTLET offers substantial savings on brand name products, 1045 W. Washington St., the best fresh produce and overall savings of 40 to Sequim 70 percent. Customers will find the easily navigated 683-1466 aisles brimming with national brands they rely on firstname.lastname@example.org such as Breyers, Campbell’s, Del Monte, Dole, Franz, Hours: 8 a.m.-9 p.m. daily Frito-Lay, Foster Farms, Green Giant, Heinz, Hormel, Hunt’s, Jif, Kelloggs, Kraft, Monterrey Farms, Nabisco,
2012 - 2013 Who’s Who Oscar Mayer, Ragu and Wishbone. The vitamins are packed fresh by Rexall, and although the savings may not be as great on commodities such as milk and eggs, they’re offered as a convenience so Grocery Outlet can be a one-stop shop. “Basically, our buyers shop opportunistically and take advantage of offers on brand name manufacturers’ overstocks and package changes,” Linda said. “Whenever there are special deals our buying team jumps on them and we get better deals to bring to our community. One example is, Breast Cancer Awareness month is in October and after October manufacturers want to clean out all the “pink” labeled goods, so we buy it and sell it for a lot less.” All products are 100 percent satisfaction guaranteed so there is no risk to the consumer. She explained that the buyers deal directly with hundreds of manufacturers nationwide who want to sell their overstock/ overrun items rather than keep them in inventory. The goods are shelf-ready and are first quality, as in any major grocery store. The Heberts receive order guides weekly that list everything that is available from
the warehouses in Portland, Ore., and Sacramento, Calif., and they order products based what Sequim customers want and are buying. “It’s like a treasure hunt without the pirates,” Linda quipped, “because you just never know what’s going to be here.” “We’re selling 4,000 different items a week on average so we probably stock 8,000 items. Our biggest challenge is to keep merchandise flowing in here. When customers do see what they’re saving, they’re buying. The beauty is when you spend $100 here, you’ve got a shopping cart full of groceries,” Mitch said. The Heberts do their own local comparison shopping and relate comments of customers who’ve become believers, too. One example Mitch cited: Grocery Outlet
offers the same size box of a popular oat breakfast cereal at 66 percent less than a chain competitor. Same food, same quality, same manufacturer, different packaging. Another customer pointed out a competitor’s buy-one, get-one free price was more expensive than Grocery Outlet’s regular price on the same product. “Customers often tell us they checked

8 our prices, then the competitor’s and came back and bought things for less,” Linda said. “People are surprised at the prices of the (domestic and foreign) wines we carry — sometimes 70 percent off retail — and we have some excellent wines here, many award-winning.” “My goal is to keep the right variety at the right prices to ensure my customers are getting the best deals — and we have much more available to us to bring in,” Mitch said. “We carry many natural, organic and gluten-free items at huge savings and will be expanding those sections.” Grocery Outlet also develops relationships with West Coast suppliers of fresh produce and vegetables, dairy, meat and deli-case foods. Linda said, for example, they order every few days from a list of 60 items on the fresh meat order guide. Some shoppers want variety on steroids from their grocery stores — a typical chain store stocks 48,000 items. Others find so many options dizzying, overwhelming and wearing — and will be relieved at the prospect of a narrowed field of choices in the Grocery Outlet’s manageable space.
2012 - 2013 Who’s Who Still, the store has about 25 different categories of products, counting all the food groups. The Heberts said they selected Sequim as a good place to raise a family and they are making the community a better place to live. “We’ve always said it’s not about the sales but the community to us, so we donate a lot to the Sequim and Port Angeles food banks,” Mitch said, “and have food drives in the summer because that’s when donations dry up and it puts a burden on parents even more to feed their families. We also actively search on our order guides for bargains and invite the food banks to come in and buy up all we have.” Linda said she had a saying in Sparks that applies to Sequim: “If you haven’t been here lately, you haven’t been here … because our products change all the time. We invite you to come in and look around — and everything’s 100 percent guaranteed.”
GROCERY OUTLET TIPS
• Stop by often. Inventory changes constantly. Find out when your store receives product and plan a trip on those days. • When you find something you like, stock up. Many of the bargains are onetime deals. • Sign up for e-mail notifications at www. groceryoutlet.com/Sequim-WA/ for special deals or in-store sales events. • Look for what you’re not looking for. Using a list is helpful for staying on budget but many expert shoppers say they get some of their best deals by staying flexible and ready to act when they see a great bargain.

Wi-Not Olympic Wi-Fi? Vickie Maples Owner
BY PATRICIA MORRISON COATE
Some Sequim-area residents are of two minds, preferring the isolation of a rustic rural home while also insisting on state-of-the-art Internet connectivity. The dual desires are easy to manage for Olympic Wi-Fi, a small Internet service provider specializing in high-speed wireless connections. “The cool thing is customers don’t have to have cable or a phone line so we can cover areas other providers can’t with comparable speed and pricing,” said Zeke Smith, the company’s 25-yearOLYMPIC WI-FI old president, system installer and 461 W. Washington St., Sequim computer technician. He explained 681-7050 that the company’s access points in Hours: the area bring service to outlying 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday; customers and to those who decide 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday to substitute their land lines for cell

phones. Olympic Wi-Fi employs two types of wireless connections, line of sight which basically covers Sequim subscribers and nonline of sight. “Non-line of sight is great for people on the outskirts or who have lots of surrounding trees. It’s just a little more affected by the weather but we make sure we have a very, very good signal and plan for weather because we know what it can be like here,” Smith said. “We don’t have bandwidth caps that others do and that’s really attractive to most people,” Smith said. Bandwidth in laymen’s terms is the amount of data that can be transmitted in a fixed amount of time. Think of bandwidth as a pipe and data — documents, photos, videos, movies, games — as liquid going through it. The larger the bandwidth, the more information can be uploaded/downloaded and the faster it does so. Also in the office are Amanda Litschke, the office manager/accountant for the past four years, and John Busch, who co-founded the company about a half-dozen years ago. Busch, a 20-year-veteran, is the network architect, designing the company’s network, maintaining its servers and planning upgrades. He also troubleshoots and repairs computers. “I came in 2008 with a degree in network
infrastructure and began as a field technician doing installations,” Smith said. He became president in November 2010 and acknowledged, “It’s been a learning experience but we’re doing well. It’s amazing how much we’ve grown and continue to develop
John Busch, Amanda Litschke and Zeke Smith as a company.” Even with 450 wireless customers now, the trio insists on individualized service. “Local tech support always is a plus and people know us by name. We get to know our customers on a personal basis. People can come in and ask questions. We do make house calls and with in-office repairs, we usually can get someone in the same or the next day,” Smith said. “We offer low rates and quick repair turnaround, typically within one or two days.” Other customer perks include no dif-
ferentiation between residential and business accounts pricing and remote anti-virus management. The company also offers inexpensive nationwide dial-up service for those who don’t need all the bells and whistles; snowbird packages with a minimal monthly maintenance fee; discounted computer repair to wireless customers; and reduced rates for anniversary tune-ups, which should be performed yearly, Smith advised. Computer user needs run the gamut from basic e-mail and Internet to graphics-laden gaming. For the latter, Smith said, Olympic Wi-Fi will build a custom computer. “For example, if someone is a gamer and wants a high-end computer to last for four years, (a custom computer) is kind of a big thing. Its software will stay relevant and the owner can plan for the future with upgrades and expansions,” which are much easier to do than an off-the-shelf computer, Smith said. Olympic Wi-Fi encourages local small business owners to discuss their specific needs with Busch because “we also do business networks and maintain servers,” Smith said. “Most businesses don’t have a dedicated network and we really can save them time and money in the long run if something goes wrong. If they lose their server for three days, they’re dead in the water. With our maintenance plan, we’re there the same day.”

A-1 Auto goes the extra mile BY PATRICIA MORRISON COATE
The guys at A-1 Auto Parts do a lot of their work on the street — and in the parking lot, removing and installing light bulbs, changing out wiper blades or swapping out batteries for customers who are automotively challenged. At the counter, armed with thick parts catalogues, a computerized inventory system and decades of knowledge, owner Kevin Bell and any one of his six employees are quick to welcome customers and answer their questions, from simple to complex. “We help people with their car problems and we try to give them the best service we can by going the extra mile to make sure customers are handled well and are happy,” Bell said, noting with a grin that the store has “made it through the big box places.” “I think people want A-1 AUTO PARTS and are going 144 W. Washington St., back to oldSequim fashioned one681-2883 on-one service www.a1autosequim.com and I believe Hours: 7 a.m.-7 p.m. we offer that Monday-Friday; here,” he said. 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday “We have a great group of customers and
Owner Kevin Bell appreciate their business.” A-1 Auto Parts was established in downtown Sequim in 1993 and Bell and his fatherin-law Lee Cowan, who retired eight years ago, bought the business in 1998. It is an independent store but is part of the Auto Value buying group. Bell’s interest in things mechanical came naturally, growing up on a farm and running a mill in British Columbia. For nearly 15 years he’s educated himself and his employees in the parts business and continues to keep up with the latest technologies and practices. “Most of us have been here a long time, so
we have a lot of knowledge and it’s secondnature to help with things like light bulbs and wipers. It’s about service,” Bell said. “I’m a hands-on owner and I like being on the counter making sure people are taken care of. I know what it’s like to be on the other side of the counter — I didn’t have a lot of auto parts experience but I knew how I wanted to be treated.” Bell said most auto parts stores carry the same staples in inventory for domestic and foreign cars and trucks, but A-1 Auto Parts also stocks industrial and RV supplies, makes hydraulic hoses and machines brake drums and rotors. “We sell a lot of trailer parts such as brakes, axles and springs, that other auto parts stores don’t have. That’s a big part of our business,” Bell said, noting that fishermen whose trailers break down on U.S. Highway 101 account for a good portion of that trade. “We have a good inventory and try to keep the right mix of parts,” Bell said. “You can buy most any kind of part and if we don’t have it, we can find it.” Bell said he’s always open to customer suggestions about stocking specific parts and says he can do that because, “We’re more adaptable than a large corporation in what we stock — sometimes there’s an advantage in being small.”

Olympic Oxygen has peninsula breathing better BY PATRICIA MORRISON COATE
There’s no worse feeling than not being able to breathe. For some, this automatic and effortless life-sustaining function becomes labor of the most exhausting kind without supplemental oxygen. Oxygen therapy is used to treat any disease that impairs the body’s ability to use oxygen in acute and chronic stages. Olympic Oxygen Services has been providing medical oxygen to the peninsula since 1980 as an extension of Olympic Ambulance, owned by Bill and Esther Littlejohn of Sequim. Several years ago the company established its own liquid-to-gas oxygen-filling plant, the first of its kind on the peninsula. “We want to make sure we have an uninterrupted supply of oxygen on the peninsula,” said Todd McClain, director of operations, citing the possible contingencies of extreme inclement weather and natural disasters. “This is an important service for people on supplemental oxygen — it’s a prescribed medication and only a few companies are equipped to handle it because of the regulations associated with
it and the costs to maintain and service equipment.” The four-person company has three lines of business: positive airway pressure devices (CPAP), medical oxygen and other gases, and nebulizers. It serves customers from Port Angeles to Gardiner, has 24-hour emergency service, offers equipment set-up and instruction and delivery and repair services. Olympic Oxygen also supplies medical oxygen, and occasionally other gases, to commercial accounts such as medical clinics, veterinarians, dentists and dermatologists. It also services Olympic Ambulance locations in Clallam, Kitsap, Thurston and Mason counties and several fire districts. “Currently, 70 percent of our business is CPAPs, mainly for sleep apnea therapy, and there’s a lot of (need for) it in the area,” McClain said. He explained that when a physician suspects sleep apnea in a patient, he or she usually will get a referral to a sleep clinic where a sleep test is done to record how often and for how long the patient stops breathing during a sleep cycle. The sleep doctor may write a prescription for the device and makes a referral to Olympic
Oxygen. According to the company’s website glossary, CPAP is “a device to provide effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea by administering a continuous flow of room air via one of several nasal or full face mask devices available. This treatment keeps the airway open and allows uninterrupted breathing and thus restorative sleep.” “The customer comes here to get the machine and get properly fitted for the mask in our private fitting room,” McClain said, and is shown how to operate it and replace disposable supplies such as filters and mask cushions. The amount of pressure the CPAP is set for is individualized and part of the prescription. Today’s units are very high-tech and software allows real-time recording on data cards like those used in digital cameras. McClain said this important feature shows the physician how effective the device is for the customer. The company also sells BiPAP units, devices much like a CPAP with added sophistication to allow for reduced effort to exhale. Another large part of the business is setting up and maintaining stationary (oxygen concentrators) and portable (tanks) oxygen therapy devices for individuals in their homes. “We get a referral from the doctor’s office with a prescription for the dosage or flow rate,” McClain said. “Our biggest challenge is, because Medicare is the major insurer here, to make sure the customer qualifies through Medicare for our payment. For example, are a person’s oxygen saturations low enough or is it a covered need for Medicare?” Olympic Oxygen also sells, rents and services nebulizers which don’t employ oxygen but do deliver medications in a mist through a mask. McClain said the field is highly regulated by the FDA, state Department of Transportation and Medicare and Olympic Oxygen recently renewed its accreditation through The Joint Commission. “What makes us stand out is, because we’re locally owned and operated, we tend to be a little more flexible serving our community,” McClain said.

Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe has evolved directly from several constituent communities of the S’Klallam Tribe. The S’Klallam Tribe (meaning “strong people”), a Salish cultural and linguistic group, is closely related to the Sooke, other tribes of British Columbia and to most of the tribes of the Puget Sound area. The S’Klallam Tribe was a clearly defined social and cultural unit, whose component villages along the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Hood Canal were closely linked by intermarriage and other cooperative social ties. This tribe, first contacted in the late 1700s, was signatory to the Point No Point Treaty with the United States in 1855. Characterized as a “progressive” Indian community, Jamestown S’Klallam tribal citizens have sought new educational opportunities and aggressively integrated into the non-Indian community and its economy. The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe presently has about 602 enrolled tribal citizens.
The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe is governed by a fivemember Tribal Council elected to four-year terms on a staggered basis. The tribal constitution was adopted in 1975 and tribal governmental programs receive overall direction from the Tribal Council through the chief executive officer. Tribal Council members are W. Ron Allen, chairman; Liz Mueller, vice chairman; Heather Johnson-Jock, secretary; Theresa R. Lehman,
2012 - 2013 Who’s Who treasurer; and Kurt Grinnell, member. The tribe, now the second largest employer in Clallam County, has worked hard to set up stable, professional operational structures for the council and staff, which have created many programs, services and activities to assist tribal citizens, and continues to build an economic base for the future. The tribe’s business arm is the Jamestown S’Klallam Economic Development Authority. Tribal-operated businesses under its auspices are Jamestown Excavating, Jamestown Information Technology, Carlsborg Mini Storage and JKT Construction. Other tribal enterprises are 7 Cedars Casino, Jamestown Family Health Clinic, Jamestown Family Dental Clinic, Jamestown Fireworks, Northwest Native Expressions Art Gallery, The Cedars at Dungeness golf course and the Longhouse Market & Deli. The tribe is a partner in the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park, Sequim, and partners with dozens of local, state,
regional and federal agencies to improve the community’s natural resources and civic services. Recent examples include restoration of an estuarine channel in the lower Dungeness River and building the Blyn Fire Station. In 1981, the tribe began operations with a full-time staff of two individuals and only two grant-funded programs. The tribal staff now consists of 176 individuals. In 1988, the tribe was one of the first in the country to test the national Self-Governance Demonstration Project. That project now is the norm for more than 300 tribes. It allows tribes more autonomy and control over Bureau of Indian Affairs funding. The project has resulted in the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe being able to provide more tribal- and community-specific programs, services and activities that better meet the needs of the citizens and helps to maintain the government-to-government relationship between the sovereign tribe and the U.S. government.
The public is welcome to take a self-guided tour of our tribal campus in Blyn. Self-guided tour maps are available in the kiosk in the Scenic Pullout on U.S. Highway 101 in Blyn or in the tribal reception area in the Administration Building.

These elements enable people to accomplish what is important to them, making communities stronger and more vibrant for riders and non-riders alike. • Opportunity. Public transportation creates a wealth of new opportunities for individuals and communities. • Choice. Every day transit allows people from every walk of life to make decisions that improve the quality of their lives, such as shortening commute times to spend more time with families, doing their part to improve air quality and avoiding dangerous driving situations. • Access.

2012 - 2013 Who’s Who
Olympic Medical Center
A unique partnership increases access to health care
Eric Lewis Chief Executive Officer Olympic Medical Center Eric Lewis, the chief executive officer at Olympic Medical Center (OMC), has a vision – ensure quality care is available close to home for families on the North Olympic Peninsula. Considering that some specialty services are only available at urban medical centers, it is a challenge to fulfill that vision. Lewis knows that some families find it necessary to travel three hours by car and ferry for some of their medical care. In 2011, Lewis reached out to Swedish Medical Center to help OMC make specialty services more accessible for families in Clallam County. With the support of Marcel Loh, chief executive of Swedish Suburban Hospitals & Affiliates, OMC became a charter member of the Swedish Health Network,
Rebecca Corley, M.D. Chief Physician Officer Olympic Medical Physicians
R. Jeffrey Westcott, M.D. Medical Director, Swedish Cardiac Cath Lab Swedish Heart & Vascular Institute
which Jefferson Healthcare and Forks Community Hospital also joined. Today these network hospitals have access to leading-edge technologies and services that would otherwise be unavailable locally. “OMC’s affiliation with Swedish will make a measurable impact on families’ health-care costs,” says Rhonda Curry, assistant administrator for strategic development at OMC. “By bringing Swedish specialists to Sequim, patients do not have to travel to Seattle for consults. This equates to dollars not spent on gas, ferries and parking – a real benefit to families in our community.” Swedish has hired a sleep medicine specialist and a neurologist to work full time in Sequim at the Olympic Medical Physicians Specialty Clinic. A second neurologist begins at OMC in November. Cardiologists from the Swedish Heart & Vascular Institute also see patients at the Sequim clinic, alongside Olympic Medical Phy-
sicians cardiologists. “Many rural medical centers don’t have the resources to support a full contingent of specialists,” says R. Jeffrey Westcott, M.D., a Swedish cardiologist who also sees patients at OMC. “Although some patients may need to come to Swedish for highly sophisticated treatments, this partnership has helped increase access to cardiology care on the peninsula.” In 2013, OMC will launch Epic, an electronic medical records system, making it possible for physicians at both locations to instantly share medical information when caring for OMC patients. “Having Epic as a shared electronic medical record will further improve health care in our community,” says Dr. Rebecca Corley, chief physician officer, Olympic Medical Physicians. “This will greatly enhance the opportunities to provide safe, quality care, as well as a satisfying experience for our patients,
Marcel Loh Chief Executive Swedish Suburban Hospitals & Affiliates medical staff and other clinicians.” The Swedish Health Network helps OMC patients receive needed health care close to home. It also helps OMC effectively manage its resources. “Implementing telemedicine, bringing specialists to the community and sharing patient education tools and group purchasing arrangements supports OMC’s commitment to high-value care,” says Kim Nicholson, Swedish vice president of service lines. “An added benefit is the personal relationships that have developed among our physicians and staff. We learn from each other and implement best practices on the peninsula and in Seattle, leading to continuous improvements in both organizations.”

2012 - 2013 Who’s Who
A family pharmacy with family values BY PATRICIA MORRISON COATE
Joe Cammack, owner of Jim’s Pharmacy.
Joe Cammack is one busy guy. In fewer than 10 minutes, he helps two customers order their prescriptions, has a discussion with a third and returns greetings to three more before sitting down and proclaiming, “We’re busy, alive and well at Jim’s Pharmacy!” It’s extra busy because it’s Customer Appreciation Day and folks are lined up outside for burgers and pink lemonade. “We have a lot of customers from clear back to when we opened, so we appreciate their loyalty — and who knows, maybe we’ll be here for another 30 years,” Cammack said. Joe’s parents, Jim and Barb Cammack, established the independent pharmacy in 1983 on Peabody Street before moving to its present home at the corner of Second and Vine streets in 1993. Joe followed in his father’s footsteps, earning his degree as a registered pharmacist from the University of Washington. “It was a good opportunity to move back to Port Angeles

2012 - 2013 Who’s Who and a good place for my natural strengths in people skills and science,” Cammack said, of carrying on the family business. He took over ownership in 2002 after working with his parents for four years. Staff has expanded from two to 37 over the past three decades. There are four pharmacists and six pharmacy technicians to ensure dispensing prescriptions and answering customer questions is a smooth process, as well as a nurse specializing in diabetes care for consultations and other employees trained in durable medical equipment. Jim’s Pharmacy is unique as it’s one of only two compounding pharmacies on the Olympic Peninsula — the other is in Port Townsend. Compounding, part art
and part science, Cammack explained, is preparing medications not commercially available, either by active ingredient, strength or form, on an individualized basis. “We do a lot with pediatric and veterinary compounds, for example in strength, and in hormone replacement therapy with natural hormones. We can titrate the dosage more precisely and micro-fine-tune it to your particular needs,” Cammack said. Instead of HRT pills at a set dosage, he can compound a hormone cream that a woman can use to increase or decrease in small increments, based on her body’s response. Cammack can compound allergyfree medications and formulate multiple medications into a single one to make dos-
ing easier. “We consider ourselves to be a fullservice pharmacy with a full selection of durable medical equipment items and we’re proud

“There is no project too small or too big for our experienced sales and design staff. Please stop by and see why our great customer service has kept this family-owned, local business around for almost 60 years.” – Jordan

of that because it makes it convenient for patients, a one-stop shop.” From wraps for nearly every type of strain or sprain, to a wall of Jobst compression stockings for edema, to scooters for mobility, customers can turn to trained staff to help with their needs. The store also carries a large assortment of home health supplies such as walkers, items for incontinence care and diabetic supplies. The third part of this successful business is its gifts section because the Cammacks felt the store should be “a fun place to shop.” Two cases of hand-crafted chocolates tempt any sweet tooth and some of the candies are sugar-free. Specialty food items include raspberry salsa, pickled green beans and corn relish, not your usual pharmacy fare. Scarves, bags, knickknacks, candles and children’s books and games are just a few of the gifts available. A tradition of customer-focused service for nearly three decades has extended far outside the confines of the store. “The advantage of being a family owned pharmacy is that we have invested in the community. We care about people and that shows in our services such as home prescription delivery, making presentations to groups and our Charity of the Month,” Cammack said. “The difference between a family owned pharmacy and a chain is we live here, too, and we want our community to be successful.” Every year Jim’s Pharmacy puts together its Charity of the Month calendar, selecting a dozen organizations to receive a portion of its over-the-counter sales for the group’s designated month. Beneficiaries have included the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society, Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County, the Port Angeles YMCA and Re-
lay for Life. “Often we’ll have a separate fundraiser as the store or in conjunction with the organization,” Cammack said. “We’re also longtime sponsors of the art show at the Juan de Fuca Festival, sand sculptures with Arts in Action and baseball and soccer teams.” For the past two years Jim’s Pharmacy has had its Free Vitamins for Kids Program through which children ages 2-12 may receive chewable multiple vitamins “because it’s the right thing to do for our community,” Cammack said. “It’s a lot of work but it feels good to be able to have a successful well-run business that’s able to give back to the community.” RESTAURANT

Customize your car, truck — and boat BY PATRICIA MORRISON COATE
Remember what you were driving in 1977? It probably was a pretty plain vehicle with an AM/FM radio, tinny factory speakers and crank windows. Mobile Music in Port Angeles, established that year, was where you could upgrade your audio system and still is today. Over the past 35 years, cars and trucks have become much more than a way to get you from here to there and Mobile Music has evolved over three decades to carve out a niche in the vehicle accessories industry, said store manager Randy Lawrence. Owners want their vehicles to reflect their personalities with add-ons such as booming woofers and specialty LED and highdensity lighting. Others want the convenience and safety of navigational systems, wireless phones, alarm systems, remote entry key locks and back-up sensors. In-car entertainment is a far cry

➤ from 1970s-era radios and tape decks with satellite radio, CD players and car video systems available. Mobile Music’s technician can install them all. “Speaker systems are our bread and butter, and we’ve primarily catered to car dealers, but we always can install for individual customers after-factory cruise control, power window and door locks and keyless entry systems,” Lawrence said. From factory replacement speakers to big woofers, Mobile Music stocks an array of audio equipment by such well-
known brands as Pioneer, Sony, Kenwood, Jensen, Audiovox, Clarion, MTX, Orion and Sound Stream that customers can hear in-house for comparison. On the other hand, if you want your vehicle a silent oasis, “We can install sound deadening material that keeps the road noise out of your car and makes your Geo sound like a Cadillac,” Lawrence said. “It’s really a mix of business — a lot of people are not buying new cars but are keeping their older ones and fixing them. For example, with the economy the way it is, we’re seeing a higher theft rate and seeing people put security and alarm systems in their cars,” Lawrence said. “For convenience’s sake, a lot of people are doing remote ignition to warm up and cool down their cars.” Lawrence said Mobile Music was the first cellular phone retailer on the peninsula and in recent years has seen users move away from contracts to prepaid cell phones through its provider Page Plus, a Verizon reseller. “We do a lot of cellular accessories such as battery chargers for the vehicle and the home, carrying cases, mounting
brackets and wireless headsets, such as Bluetooth installation sets with voice dialing,” Lawrence said, noting the latter is really the way to go with Washington’s primary offense cell phone laws. In 2001, satellite radio debuted as a paid subscription service with access to hundreds of genres of programming, some commercial free. Seven years later the two companies in the forefront, Sirius and XM, merged but

each offers its own proprietary channels and Mobile Music can install and set up either system for customers. With the Olympic Mountains usually hampering AM/FM reception from points east, plus the wide array of choices for listeners, satellite radio as a subscription service appeals to more and more customers, Lawrence noted. Have a road trip coming? Mobile Music has navigation systems and a variety of car theater systems that work with most vehicles including in-dash DVD players, overhead monitors with a split screen for the youngsters or individual headrest monitors for backseat passengers. “We definitely do a lot of back-up cameras and sensor systems and they really make vehicles safer,” Lawrence said. “Basically, the sensor beeps and the camera allows the driver to see blind spots.

Tips for women managing small businesses It’s no secret small businesses are essential to the economy. The latest U.S. Census Bureau’s Survey of Business Owners reported women owned 7.8 million businesses and accounted for 28.7 percent of all businesses nationwide. These small business firms generated $1.2 trillion in receipts. Given the challenges facing small businesses overall in this current economic climate, now more than ever women are navigating work-life demands, business management and talent retention issues. “Small business owners are constantly making sacrifices and prioritizing the success of their business over other personal priorities in their lives, but there are some simple ways to maintain a better work-life balance,” says Steve Strauss, small business expert and USA TODAY columnist. He offers the following tips to managing the daily juggling act of owning a small business: • Build a diverse support system: While a vast majority of small business owners need some level of financial guidance, often in the form of occasional or ongoing expert advice, the report finds more women than men engage an accountant/bookkeeper, a financial advisor or banker to help them run their businesses. Resources such as these can expand your network, provide essential professional support and keep you current
on relevant trends. • Use tech tools and resources available to you: According to the Bank of America Small Business Owner Report, women are actually more likely than men to view technology as a useful cash management tool. Electronic invoicing, online payroll services and mobile banking are other resources that can help. If you’re not already using these types of tools, be sure to speak with your financial institution about how to better manage your finances and improve efficiency. • Boost your competitive edge in the war for talent: The financial benefits you offer current and potential employees can be a dealmaker … or deal breaker. The good news is that small businesses now have access to 401(k) and IRA products designed specifically for their needs and budgets. Offering these benefits is more important for women particularly when coupled with the cultural and work-life balance perks that often make small businesses attractive to employees, and they can boost your competitive edge. With the right expertise and tools, small business owners can be equipped to improve their worklife balance. Courtesy ARA Content
