What is This Newspaper?

The Beaverton Resource Guide (BRG) is a free monthly community paper for the city of Beaverton, Oregon. Cedar House Media published the first edition in April of 2011 with the help of the city and the Farmers Market. That first issue was 16 pages. Today, just over one year later, the paper is 32 pages and sponsored by a huge cross section of the city from shopping malls like Washington Square and Cedar Hills Crossing to public entities such as the police and fire departments, the Visitor’s Association (WCVA), the Senior Citizen’s Advisory Committee and the park district (THPRD) to name a few.

hen THPRD went about conceiving a brand-new summer event, the planning committee had the good sense to recognize the success of Portland Parkways and the desire to create a similar atmosphere for Beaverton residents. With some good timing and an inspired brainstorm, THPRD has conceived the fun, active outdoor event it sought – with a twist to make the event unique. “Sunday Trailwaysâ€? is scheduled for -XQHIURPDPSP. It will be a free event with activities for kids and adults all along the Fanno Creek Trail, which extends 4½ miles within THPRD boundaries from Garden Home Recreation Center to Greenway Park. The trail features some of Beaverton’s most scenic areas, including the Koll Wetlands, Fanno Farmhouse and Vista Brook Park. “Hosting this event on the Fanno Creek

-XQHDPSP Trail, one of our most popular trails, meets so many of our objectives,� said Lisa Novak, Park District superintendent of Programs and Special Activities. “It promotes awareness of our trails, it’s active, it’s community and familyoriented, it highlights our natural resources and it showcases a nonmotorized alternative for city travelers.� The event will begin with a grand opening ceremony at 11 a.m. to commemorate January’s completion of the “missing link� of the trail, a half-mile segment

extending from the intersection of Scholls Ferry Road and Allen Blvd to the end of 105th Court (near the intersection of Denney Road and Highway 217). After that, trail neighbors and patrons of all ages and ¿tness levels are invited to walk, run or bike the route, meet neighbors and enjoy activities throughout the trail. ‡ 3ODQQHGDFWLYLWLHVLQFOXGH ‡ )UHHERG\IDW¿tness assessments (Garden Home)

Beaverton students donate their hair to Locks of Love W

By FOX 12 Staff

ith a few snips of the scissors, some local students helped cancer patients by way of a popular charity. Sixteen students and one parent from Pilgrim Lutheran School in Beaverton had some of their hair snipped to help Locks of Love. Students volunteered and went up on stage during an assembly in the school gym. That’s where three stylists from local salons cut the students’ hair in front of the school. Pilgrim Lutheran student Jasper Hanson even shaved his whole head for the event. “I’m thinking, how can that be my hair? I didn’t know I had that much hair,� Hanson said. “I wanted to give it to kids who really needed my hair.� This is the second year in a row students at Pilgrim Lutheran, located on Hall Bou-

levard, have volunteered to donate their hair for others. Hair stylists from Great Clips, Sylvan Hills Salon, and Tres Bon Salon in the Bethany area of Portland gave their time to the event. /RFNVRI/RYHLVDQRQSUR¿WRUJDQL]Dtion that provides hairpieces to girls who need it because of medical hair loss or another diagnosis. The minimum length for a hair donation is 10 inches, and it takes six to 10 donated ponytails to make one hairpiece. Look for more Positively Oregon stories every night on The 10 O’clock News� on FOX 12.

love the Beaverton Farmers Market. Fresh produce, yummy food and friendly folks. Last weekend I decided to buy some beets to attempt putting together a Beet Salad. I always order a Beet Salad at restaurants if they serve it but I’ve never made it at home before. Seeing fresh beets at the farmers market inspired to go ahead and give it a try.

Beet Salad with Vinaigrette Dressing Ingredients t 3 med. beets, scrubbed & trimmed Beet Vinaigrette: t 1/4 cup dark raisins t 1 1/4 c. leek, thinly sliced crosswise (white & pale green parts only) t ½ cup cider vinegar, boiling t 1 Tbsp honey t 2 Tbsp roasted beets t 1 tsp Dijon mustard t 3/4 tsp salt t 3/4 cup olive oil


To prepare vinaigrette, place raisins in a heatproof bowl; pour boiling vinegar over raisins. Let stand 30 minutes or until raisins are plump and liquid is cool. Transfer to food processor. Process until raisins form a dark paste. Add honey, 2 Tbsp diced beets, mustard & salt; continue processing. Gradually add oil. Transfer to a bottle & refrigerate. Shake/stir before using. To prepare salad, combine the greens, toasted walnuts, beets, cheese & apple; drizzle vinaigrette over salad and toss well.

Beet Salad: t 1 lb baby arugula, spring mix or baby spinach t 1/2 cup walnut pieces, toasted t The sliced (or diced) beets t 6 oz blue cheese, crumbled Gorgonzola t 1 crisp tart apple (sliced or diced)

ART of Food Photography

Directions Preheat oven to 400F. Wrap beets in foil, place on a baking sheet and bake 30-45 mins. or until crisp-tender. Cool; run under cold water to slip off skins. Cut in ½ and then slice/dice, reserving 2 Tbsp. for vinaigrette.

New Restaurant Spotlight: Thai Noodle Etc.


hai Noodle Etc. is located in the Cedar Hills shopping mall in Beaverton near the movie theatre. We have more than 15 years of experience in the Thai Restaurant business. Why open another Thai restaurant? The answer is simple: we love Thai food and want to share our passion for excellent food with as many people as possible. We also wanted to do something different with Thai Noodle Etc. – our mission was to create a modern restaurant in a modern locDWLRQEXWZLWKDWUDGLWLRQDOņDYRU and taste of cooking that you actually experience in the homes and streets of Thailand. In creating Thai Noodle Etc., we believe we have succeeded in this quest! Not everyone gets to travel to Thailand, but we hope that our Thai food brings to you the Taste of Thailand and that you will share our love for Thai food with your friends and family.

Since then, over 50 restaurants have sprung up all across the West coast, including the location here in Beaverton in 2005.

But what makes me even happier is to see customers enjoying my work. My pieces are leadfree, food safe, and functional. Yarn bowls are my most popular item. Not only they are pretty to look at, they also help you contain your runaway balls of yarn in one place while you knit or crochet. Mugs and bowls have been popular, too.

This year, I also started making planters out of recycled clay. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my small contribution to being green. Every piece is hand thrown or built one by one.

They settled on a wooded two-acre site owned by Jacob Hoover, near McKay Creek. He sold one acre for $25 and donated the other. Construction began without delay. Community and church members contributed much of the materials and labor. The expected cost was still about $2,000, which included stained glass windows imported from Scotland. Its distinctive eightsided steeple, buttresses, and steeply-pitched roof may have been inspired by the Gothic structures of the Old World. Today, the Carpenter Gothic style of architecture and white wooden frame distinguish it as both a National Register of Historic Places site and contemporary house of worship. 30685 Scotch Church Road, Hillsboro.

The congregation met in the log cabin Lenox had built as the family home for some time. Deacon Lenox eventually donated two acres of his land claim for a church and cemetery.

St. Cecelia Catholic Church in Beaverton traces its beginnings to St. Anthony of Padua church in Cedar Mill. Beginning in 1876, Father Joseph Hermann celebrated Mass in a school, neighborsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes, and a vacant log cabin. Two years later, Bernard McKenna and John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien donated timberlands for a church and cemetery. Archbishop Blanchet then bought an additional 1.4 acres for $14. The 20â&#x20AC;&#x2122; x 40â&#x20AC;&#x2122; wood structure was moved from the west side of Murray Boulevard to the east side in 1882 and dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua in 1884. This original building was used unSt. Cecelia Catholic Church

It was dedicated in 1908 to St. Mary. In 1913 a chapel and school were combined into a single, two-story structure, dedicated as St. Cecelia. The building was torn down in 1951 when an auto dealership built a garage and showroom. The parish house that had been built about 1915 adjacent to the church still exists, the back part of a bicycle shop - 12300 block of SW Canyon Road. At dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, pioneers had taken a break from their chores, worshipped, and socialized. They were ready for work the next six days.

The parish again relocated, this time from Cedar Mill to Beaverton, in 1908 to serve the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developing population. Father L.A.

Keep Your Balance, Mobility & Strength for Life this summer at THPRD Elsie Stuhr Center


ost older adults want retire and remain living independently in their own home for as long as possible and continue do things that are meaningful. For successful aging, performing normal daily tasks and recreational activities older adults need good balance, mobility and strength to maintain their functional health. The fact is that the effects of aging, changing medical conditions (e.g. diabetes, osteoporosis, peripheral neuropathy, arthritis), side effects of medication (e.g. chemo therapy) often reduces sensation in feet, changes in vision and changes in the vestibular system. Physical inactivity, bed rest, hospitalization, reduced muscle strength, limited range of motion

in joints, stiff muscles, and poor posture further reduces balance, stability and mobility. Research has shown that many of these conditions can be compensated for or improved with targeted exercises of the award winning FallProof Balance and Mobility Program. FallProof is the only balance and mobility program that takes a multidimensional approach to treating balance and mobility disorders and addresses all the body systems mentioned above. The Fallproofâ&#x201E;˘ program I and II will be available this summer through the THPRD Elsie Stuhr Center right in the heart of Beaverton. Falls are a major threat of adults 65 years and older who live

in their own homes. In the TVF 5 UHSRUWV WKDW LQ WKH 7XDODWLQ Valley area people over the age of 65 make up 90 percent of calls from fall related injuries. Nearly one-third of people 65 years or older who live in their own homes fall each year. Those who fall often experience a decline in the ability to perform activities of daily living and a lose independence. The good news is that injuries and deaths due to falls are not an inevitable consequence of aging and most if not all falls can be prevented. We plan for reWLUHPHQW Ĺ&#x2026;QDQFLDOO\ we also need an appropriate physical activity plan so that we can enjoy our retirement years in good health with strength, stamina, with good balance and mobility.

Speeder Spotlight: Chef Waldemar Bauder of Creekside Village By Jolene Guptill


hef Waldemar Bauder, of Creekside Village Retirement, served a traditional homestyle American delicious dinner, which I was able to sample while I sat down with him recently for a visit. I admit I might have missed a word or two while I was savoring the veggies. This year Chef Bauder is celebrating 20 years as Chef

and Kitchen Manager for Creekside Village. Residents stopped by for greetings while we chatted. Known as Walt to the folks at Creekside, he was born in Portland, and moved to Beaverton as a child. Cooking has always been a part of KLV OLIH :DOW ZDV Ĺ&#x2026;UVW inspired by his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great cooking, a skill she picked up working at their family restaurant in Germany. As a teenager in pursuit of a job, Walt walked up Beaverton Hillsdale Highway and stopped in at every restaurant until he was hired on at The Village Inn as a dishwasher. Within three months, he was given his chance and was promoted to cook. By the time Elmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pancake House opened on Cedar Hills Blvd, Chef Bauder signed on as kitchen manager. He su-

pervised all the food preparation, and made sure everything was freshly made, everyday. Later, he became the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager, while continuing to supervise the kitchen. After 16 years, he said goodbye to Elmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and hello to Creekside Village. Chef Bauder carefully hand-selects the fresh fruits, meats and vegetables to be used for each dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meals at Creekside. All meals are made from scratch. There is kind of a family atmosphere around the dining room at Creekside, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon for Chef Bauder to take one of the dinner guestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestions for a favorite dish or recipe they relish tasting again. Homemade breads, desserts, soups, and salads are always available as tasty accompaniments to your meal, and even made-to-order breakfasts are always on the menu. Of course, the dietary needs of this vibrant

community are always taken into consideration in meal planning, and alternatives are available for those with special dietary needs. Chef Bauder takes great care to make sure that all the residents have delicious, nutritious food and an enjoyable dining experience. If you would like to experience lunch or dinner with Chef Bauder and the Creekside crowd, simply call and have a table reserved. (SECRET HINT: Choose to have lunch on the third Tuesday of the month, you can stay and play Bingo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free to play and there is a $50 gift card blackout prize!) If you do stop by, be sure to try a slice of pie â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my mouth still waters each time I think of the slice of peach pie that followed my meal. Pies are his favorite to bake, he says, because they always make people happy. Remember to check your speed and enjoy the ride!

Our Story


ello, my name is Bowzer and I’m a blue Italian Mastiff American Bull Dog. But that’s not what makes me special. What makes me special is my pops, Mark Mangold. He owns and operates Green Planet Tree Care but many of you may remember it by its old name, Mangold’s Tree Service. He started this new and improved company in order to emphasize his commitment to quality service, affordable prices and earth-friendly practices. And to top it off, he brought me on board to supervise! You see, I’m the

one who came up with the idea that if you bring us out for a service and we have a bit of extra time and the right equipment, we’ll trim your other trees free of charge. We’ll also give you free wood chips and firewood, as much as you need. Just ask. Yup, I learned at a very young age that being nice to your neighbors is a good thing and it can even get you a good scratch behind the ear. Who doesn’t like that! So if you need tree help, please give me a call. I’ll say woof but Mark will give you good

advice. You can even take a picture with your phone and text it to him. Odds are, he’ll analyze your problem and get you a solution right there on the spot. Yes, he’s that good. You can also bring him a problem stick and he’ll diagnose it before throwing it for you… really, really far too. He’s so much fun. So for me, if that doesn’t make him the best tree doctor in town, I don’t know what does! Hope to meet you soon.

elcome to our June the community they live in.

ately Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve felt like our home is a labyrinth of miscommunication. Not just the kind where the hubby and I get our wires crossed about who was supposed to be picked up where, but more of D ÄĽ<RX-XVW'RQÄŁW*HW0HÄŚ kind of Jabberwocky, where people are having completely independent conversations with themselves, yet still expecting those around them to respond appropriately. There is no place where this is more evident than dinner at our houseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a mandatory gathering and venue to discuss the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highs and lows (in between the meal complaints and sibling rivalry stabs). 7 year old

didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to do it and here is what they said: 1. First, talk to your friends and get them involved. 2. Think of a charity or a cause that means something to you. 3. Think of something that you like to do. 4. Talk to your teachers and tell them your plan. 5. Try your hardest and just do it!

I think the advice from these girls applies to not only kids looking to make a difference but adults too. You are never too young, never too old to get started on making a difference. It is never too late. Thank you Bracelet Bunch for being such a shining example of how todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth can be of service to the community. The girls set a goal of raising $100 and have so far exceeded their goals. Since February of this year, they are directly responsible for impacting 70 children living in Kenya.
