A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR Mary Taylor
Photo | Alex Lasota
Dear Friends, There are very few things that I’m naturally gifted at. Usually, I must make a conscious decision to learn something new or to make gradual improvements within a particular interest over time. Then, four years pass, and I find myself with a new skill set that I’d never had before; like playing the piano by ear, or gardening. Even Taylored Living is an example of this. Its creation goes against everything I was brought up to believe I could do, but I began with realistic expectations for myself.
For most of us (except centenarians) this has been our first pandemic. This is also the first time that we’ve been barraged by so many obstacles that are completely out of our control; yet we expect ourselves to naturally handle every setback with the capacity to struggle with grace and without missing a beat. Unless you’re a robot (and I’m not) these expectations are wildly unrealistic given the circumstances from this past year. If you’re feeling physically and emotionally depleted going into 2021, know you are not alone. If we don’t mitigate our expectations to reflect the dumpster fire events that occurred in 2020, we lose the teachable moment that 2020 actually was: an opportunity to learn, to try again, and to do better next time.
I personally don’t emphasize outcome as much as process when it comes to progress, so when I give myself permission to “suck” despite trying my hardest, that softens the blow and leaves the door open for me to try again. When things don’t come naturally to me, it’s through repetition that I create my own excellence, so success, then, becomes completely within my control.
Over the holiday season I read something that felt so true and right: “This last year was not about getting everything that we wanted. It was about appreciating everything that we have.” And now that we’ve made it through our first pandemic, I’d like to think we’ll handle what happens next a little bit better.
The new year ahead is oftentimes celebrated as a chance for us to start over! Everyone gets a “do over” where expectations can be reset, and that’s a wonderful gift! The problem is that the struggles of 2020 will most likely bleed over into the new year and we won’t get that chance to reset that we so desperately need.

Winter Skin Care Your skin may be bright and clear for most of the year, and you feel like you’ve got your skin care routine down! Then the dry air and temperature changes of winter hit, and your skin becomes dry, irritated, and dull. When it’s time for boots and sweaters, it’s also time for some changes in your skin care.
“Maskne” (Mask + Acne) Perioral dermatitis, or skin irritation around the nose and mouth, is relatively common in adult women. If you are getting irritation and breakouts on your lower face, make sure you are changing your mask regularly, or carry a supply of single-use masks. When you wash your cloth masks, add an extra rinse cycle. Medical-grade skin care products may be helpful, as well as certain chemical peels or laser treatments. If you’re still struggling, talk to a skin care professional. In some cases, prescription topical or oral antibiotics may be needed.
Facial Dryness It may seem counterintuitive, but you should avoid over-moisturizing your face. Drugstore moisturizers can clog pores and adhere old skin cells to the surface of your skin, making your skin more congested and dull-appearing. A light moisturizer with antioxidants in the morning is ideal (such as Daily Power Defense from ZO) along with Growth Factor Serum (also from ZO) at night. If you are prone to acne breakouts, use a moisturizer with niacinamide to reduce inflammation. Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizer, and EltaMD UV Clear sunscreen are both inexpensive and contain niacinamide. Use a gentle cleanser for your face. A medical-grade cleanser is best, but Cetaphil is a decent alternative. If you are particularly dry, try a cleansing oil to remove debris and makeup before using your gentle cleanser. Be cautious about exfoliating. Gritty exfoliating creams are called physical exfoliators because they scrub off dry skin cells. But they are often too harsh, especially when your skin is dry, and can increase inflammation. Use a high-quality physical exfoliator about once weekly. Exfoliating Polish from ZO has uniform mineral magnesium crystals that gently exfoliate without damaging your skin. Rather than using a physical exfoliator frequently, use a chemical exfoliator three or four times weekly. Chemical exfoliation may sound intimidating, but it simply refers to using alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) an enzyme that breaks down the dead skin cells, so that you can easily remove them with your cleanser, rather than having to scrub them off.
9 | TAYLORED LIVING | WINTER 2020
Dry Arms and Legs As nice as a hot bath feels on a cold day, hot water and soaps contribute to dry skin on your body. If you do bathe, use an essential oil in the water and keep your bath to around twenty minutes or less. To wash, use a moisturizing product such as Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash, or a soap-free cleanser like Eucerin Skin Calming Body Wash. After you bathe or shower, pat your skin dry (rather than rub it dry), and immediately apply a body ointment. These are thick and usually come in a tub rather than a pump. Look for one that contains ceramides, which are fatty lipid molecules that help protect the skin surface. Eucerin Advanced Repair Cream is excellent for this purpose.
Improving Your Skin During the summer, your main skin care goal is to protect your skin from the sun. You should wear sunscreen on your face and neck every day regardless of the season, but in the winter, you naturally have less sun exposure. Many laser treatments are not safe or effective on sun-exposed or tanned skin. Therefore, winter is a good time to consider professional treatments that improve your skin texture, balance your skin tone, and remove unwanted hair. If you would like to build more collagen in your skin, lessen fine lines, or reduce acne scars, talk to a skin care professional about updating your skin care routine with anti-aging topical serums, micro-needling, or medium-depth chemical peels. In the winter, your skin needs more attention to avoid seasonal dryness and irritation, but you deserve the confidence that comes with healthy, clear skin!

did you know?
Unrefined or virgin coconut oil smells and tastes like fresh coconut while refined coconut oil is filtered which makes it smell and taste neutral!
Chapped Lips Got You Down? While this can occur any time of year, winter tends to exacerbate cracking and peeling of the lips. Your lips do not have the same oils that most of your skin does, so they need extra protection. Carry a soothing lip balm in your bag, keep an extra in your car and in your desk at work so that you are not tempted to lick your lips when they are dry. If your lips have dry flakes, put on a heavier lip balm at night. Then, in the morning, gently buff to exfoliate with a Burtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bees lip scrub, or make your own with a bit of coconut oil mixed with sugar!
do it yourself SUPER EASY | 2 Ingredient Sugar Scrub 1/2 CUP unrefined organic coconut oil 1/4 CUP white sugar (whatever is in your pantry)
Directions Mix together the coconut oil and sugar. Store in an airtight containter to prevent scrub from drying out.
Patch Test (before use) Gently massage the inside of your wrist with the scrub to see if your skin has any sensitivities.

Signature Hot Drink: Every one needs to hold onto a warm cup of happy every now and then during these frigid winter months. Although it can be part exciting and part daunting to try something new, there is no better time to give it a try! Here are a few options that Jake Shupe with Barracuda Coffee suggests. Now, if you aren’t a coffee drinker, check out a Matcha Tea Latte, or consider turning your favorite green or black tea into its very own latte! Add a little simple syrup and half and half to your afternoon cup of Earl Grey and call it delicious!

Wooly Socks: Warm, breathable and naturally stretchy, wool socks absorb moisture and are odor-resistant. Also, with all of the different types of wool on the market, the fashion options are endless! Wool is a renewable resource that, when cultivated ethically, offers many benefits. Not all wool is the same, though. If you are concerned about animal cruelty, make sure to look for ethically sourced wool. This means the animals are treated and cared for just as well as the farmers who raise them. A few â&#x20AC;&#x153;wooly greatâ&#x20AC;? options to start with are; Patagonia, People Tree, Seasalt, and Smart Wool.
[Wool (n) The fine, soft curly or wavy hair forming from the coat of an animal and prepared for use in making cloth or yarn.]
Winter Favorites 15 | TAYLORED LIVING | WINTER 2020
Beef Face Chapstick: This chapstick is made by Neiffer Ranch farmer, Lara Neiffer. The chapstick itself has a base of tallow, or rendered beef-fat. Say WHAT? I know… I know… but hear me out: beef fat is naturally rich in vitamins A, D, K, and E, so it is like a vitamin pill for your skin. Plus, everything about the chapstick is eco-friendly, including the packaging and the manufacturing! But, what about the beef fat, Mary? Let me tell you, once you put it on you don’t think about it. The chapstick itself feels light and immediately softens your lips. Other ingredients include cold-pressed olive oil, shea butter, beeswax, carnauba wax, and the littlest amount of peppermint essential oil to brighten it up. You can get a .25-ounce Beef Face Chapstick for $5.00 + shipping.

Long Bathrobe: Nothing says luxuriously warm and cozy like a long, fluffy, white bathrobe. Why do you think higher end hotels carry them? Don’t wait to take a trip to treat yourself. I found this glorious robe at the new Philocaly Lingerie Boutique in Kennewick, and I wear it around the house like Hugh Hefner did at his Playboy mansion. I’m guessing these robes will sell out quickly, but don’t worry! Faith is fantastic and has been known to make special orders for her clients!

Winter Favorites “Grown-up” Gloves Maybe this is from my fascination with British television and the royal family, but I’m talking REAL “grown-up” gloves (not fuzzy, fluffy, snowball-forming, fat-fingering, bulky-wearing mittens). I think every adult needs a sleek pair of neutral colored driving gloves that he or she can wear to protect their hands from the cold elements during winter. Whether you’re getting into a cold car, standing outside for recess duty, or waiting in line at the taco truck, your hands need to be free from your pockets and still stay warm. Grown-up gloves need to be able to subtly fit in your coat pocket or purse so that you always have them “on hand”, and they also need to look good with whatever winter wear you own. I suggest looking for a cognac brown leather (or faux leather) pair because they look great with almost everything. Check out THREADS in downtown Kennewick to score a vintage pair, or I’ve even seen a few pairs at Free-Culture Clothing across the street! Other local options include TWIST or Marla June’s in Kennewick. Remember, when you shop local, it’s SUPER easy to see if the business can place a special order at your request. All you need to do is ask!

Open A Window to Energy Savings How to use passive solar heat to help your heating bill
Are you dreading the rise in your heating bills
If you’re in the market for new windows, the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) can tell you how much solar radiation will penetrate through the window and is released as heat into your home. The SHGC ranges between 0-1, with the closer to 0 meaning less solar radiation comes through. A SHGC of 0.8 means 80% of the sun’s heat is allowed into your home.
as the days get darker and colder? Before you touch the thermostat, you might not realize the crisp, sunny days of winter offer the advantage of free, passive solar heat. Notice how cats seek out the sunny spot on the floor and lounge for hours? Well, they’re on to something. By keeping the curtains or blinds open during sunny, daylight hours, especially on south-facing windows, your home can feel up to 5 degrees warmer. Also, check that the heating registers throughout the house are clear of furniture, curtains, rugs, (and pets) to ensure unobstructed heat flow, allowing your furnace to work a little easier.
If you have an older, historic home that still has some single-pane windows, or some drafty areas around your double pane windows, air sealing with a simple caulk from the hardware store can deem great comfort and savings. Plugging up air leaks around doors, windows, and even behind electric outlets will keep hot air where you most need it: inside. A note from the editor: Cascade Natural Gas also offers rebates for high-efficient Energy Star windows that replace existing single pane windows. Go to cngc.com/energy-efficiency for more information.

5 ways to warm up your space
without turning up the thermostat by Stephanie Castillo | Rumble Interiors, located inside NEST @ Collective Interiors in Ellensburg, WA photos by Meaghan Bickel, Joy Photography!
1. Add layers
(from the ground up)!
2. invest in down inserts and removeable pillow cases
Typically when you’re cold at home you turn up the thermostat for a quick fix. But, what if you could simply warm up your space using a few interior design techniques? Here are five ways that you can warm up your home, without touching your thermostat. 1. ADD LAYERS If you have hardwood flooring in your home, this is the time of year they feel the coldest! Cover them up with runners in the kitchen or by the front door. Better yet, layer your rugs for extra padding and to keep your toes toasty warm. I especially love the look of a hide rug as a contrasting layer. While you’re at it, add blankets to every chair or sofa in the room. Consider a chunky knit, fur, or even the afghan Grandma made that’s patiently waiting to be used. Blankets visually warm up a space and give everyone who sits on or around them an extra layer of warmth. To make things even warmer, consider layering
them! Combine warm colors like oranges, golds, and reds with textures such as velvet, fur, fleece, flannel, or sweater-knit materials for extra warmth and visual interest. 2. INVEST IN DOWN INSERTS Employ the comfort, versatility, and convenience of down pillow inserts and removeable pillow cases! Down-filled pillow inserts are warm, easy to snuggle with, and can take a good karate chop to make the “v” shape on top (we designers love to do that)! I always suggest that you buy pillows that can be changed out easily using either zipper or button closers so that if you want to switch things up, all you have to do is buy new pillow covers! Removeable pillow cases also take up less room in storage. Just like with rugs and blankets, consider placing a larger pillow next to a smaller one for a cozier feel on the sofa.
Let our family...

3. NO naked walls! Bare walls feel cold but well-planned gallery walls feel warm. Do you have a ton of family photos that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wanting to use? If so, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to use them! Go to mixtiles.com, and upload all of your favorite photos from your phone. They will conveniently send those photos back to you, in frames with no-damage adhesive, for about $11 each and with free shipping!
4. Use Softer Light! Add soft lighting with smaller lanterns, or change out light bulbs with softer and warmer-toned voltage. I love the Himalayan Salt Lamp for its warm and peaceful look.
23 | TAYLORED LIVING | WINTER 2020
5. Add wood! Wood is one of the four elements in Feng Shui, so utilizing its principles to decorate promotes relaxation and a feeling of refuge. Wood also fuels fire, so it makes sense that incorporating wood into your design adds warmth! If you have a fireplace, add some wood to a basket next to it. If you already have wood furniture in your house, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to highlight it and bring it to the forefront of your style!
designers love a good Karate chop!

Karen’s Book Review
Are you looking for a good book to read? Karen’s Book Reviews are a great place to start!
THE BOOK OF LONGINGS | Authored by Sue Monk Kidd | Reviewed by Karen Bertsch THE BOOK OF LONGINGS is a brave effort and is certainly controversial. Kidd’s writing is some of the best I’ve ever read. Her command of the English language is incredible – that alone may get her forgiven for her subject matter:
Make no mistake, this is not a religious book. Jesus is presented as more of a radical, a rebellion leader who aims to get Rome out of Israel. Ana questions everything: family, cults, religions, and politics. Kidd’s Author’s Note at the end of the book reads more like a disclaimer. She knows she will anger many people, confuse some, and mystify others. If you like to read about commonly-held beliefs from a seriously different perspective, this is your book.
Was Jesus married? Kidd’s premise is that he may have been since it was uncommon for a young man in that part of the world to remain unmarried. The book is written from Jesus’ wife’s perspective. She is a very modern woman in a time when women were a half a step above cattle in importance. Ana struggles with the constraints of her culture and longs for its enlightenment. Papyrus paper and her homemade ink are precious commodities, which she guards. Most precious, however, is ivory hammered so thin it could be written on.
Previous books by Kidd include: The Secret Life of Bees, The Mermaid Chair, and The Invention of Wings.

“Where the Crawdads Sing is a deep exploration of survival!” -Karen Bertsch
WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING | Authored by Delia Owens This is author Delia Owens’ first fiction book; previous books written by Owens are about her life as a wildlife scientist in Africa. This book was a #1 New York Times bestseller. Bravo! Her style is easy to read and pulls you along as she weaves a story you may think you know the ending of--but probably don’t. Imagine being abandoned as a child in the back county of North Carolina. Smart in ways we would not wish on anyone, Kya manages to feed herself, make a few essential friends, avoid social workers, and study the vegetation and wildlife around her. Her brief experience with school teaches her that school is not the place for her as it offers nothing that will help her survive. And then there’s a murder. And a boyfriend, maybe two. Her life grows more complicated as she approaches adulthood. It’s a mistake to underestimate Kya, however; while not exactly a “beach read,” Where the Crawdads Sing is a deep exploration of survival. If you are a local author and would like to send Karen a book to review you can mail your publication to: ATTN: Karen’s Book Review 4528 W 26th Ave | STE 140 Kennewick, WA 99336 Submitting a book to Karen’s Book Review does not mean that your publication will be read, reviewed or published within TLM.

HOW TO avoid CLUTTER STRESS
HOUSEBOUND &LOVING IT! by Audra Thurman | Audra Thurman Design | audrathurman.com
Let me guess: you read the headline and instantly shouted, “I may be housebound, but I am NOT loving it!” What a crazy, weird, wild and long year we’ve had! Nevertheless, through miracles unbeknownst to us, here we are. (Excuse me for a moment while I reminisce...) One day during the summer, I was driving along and noticed a sunflower. Poor thing was all by herself and growing (almost) by a drain. I’m sure she wished she could have been planted by all the others in the lush soil. But no; her seed fell on the hard; waterless; ugly; weed-infested gravel. I stopped my car and walked over to this little, yellow thing, and as crazy as it sounds, she spoke to me of: Her will! Her determination!
She bloomed... Away from the others. Away from the attractiveness. Away from the lush soil. This sunflower made a choice to turn her disappointment into an appointment. An appointment that not only fulfilled her purpose, but also brought joy to someone else’s day. We might not like where we’re planted right now. We might be wishing to return to the lushness of regular life. And that’s okay. But we can still choose to bloom, no matter our circumstances. ~~ Our homes have the opportunity to be a place that restores and rejuvenates us. And presently, more than ever, we need this. Being “housebound” for months has us feeling all possible feelings. Anxiety tops my list, and I’ve been determined to be like that little sunflower, and work with what I’ve got to turn this season into an opportunity. One of my absolute favorite things to do is to organize and declutter.
Her tenacity! I was overwhelmed that she had defied all the odds and had continued on the course of fulfilling her purpose despite her circumstances. I’m sure she wished she was planted somewhere else. Anywhere else. But she bloomed. She wasn’t able to change her surroundings, or how she got there, but she figured out how to bloom anyway.
And boy, do I have CLUTTER! To me, clutter equates to stress. Maybe it’s because I’m constantly roaming from room to room and am reminded of how disorganized my house really is (insert me throwing my crying self on the bed dramatically).

THREE reasons Why your clutter (or disorganization)
You don’t know where to start.
You can’t relax with the constant “to-do list” which, in turn, causes guilt.
Clutter overstimulates your brain.

“We don’t grow when things are easy. We grow when we face challenges and choose to walk forward despite them.”
AVOID CLUTTER STRESS by following these simple tips!
If you find yourself stuck inside and feeling anxiety, here are a couple tips that can help you shed the unwanted weight of clutter stress:
Start somewhere. Anywhere. Just start! I recommend starting small, like in a junk drawer or a closet. (Bonus: it will feel oh-so-good to cross it off your list and will motivate you for those bigger projects.)
Build organization into your daily schedule. Create a list of clutter projects that you’d like to tackle and give yourself 30 minutes per project. You can accomplish a lot in 30 minutes.
Invest in containers of all sizes. The Dollar Store has great options.
Pull everything out of the space you’re organizing and start fresh. Only put back necessary items. Consider donating unwanted items to a local charity-driven thrift store.
F-I-N-I-S-H every project before starting a new one.

Ranging from piping hot to ice cold, the flavors vary just as much as their temperatures do. Tea is the versatile sister to coffee and it’s absolutely on-trend. However, the perks of tea go beyond trendiness: it can help curb cravings, soothe a sour stomach, get a caffeine kick, or simply give you a moment to relax and chill. Read on to learn more from Linda about six common teas and figure out which tea suits you best. (Who knows…maybe you’ll find that there’s more than one!)

Let’s Get Cozy Intimate Conversations by Rosemary Fotheringham | photos by Meghan Rickard
In a world full of distractions, business, work, children, date night and self-care time usually gets relegated to the back burner. We know we probably (should) be better about doing a date night, but it can be easy for us to let days or even weeks to go by without meaningfully reconnecting with our partner or even doing basic self-care. Without novelty (something there’s less of in a COVID world) our relationships can fizzle out if we’re not intentional about keeping the flame burning. Still, this isn’t something for you to beat yourself up about! The fact that your days are so taken up by work and children shows that you are dedicated to both your career and to child rearing. You work hard at your job because you have a strong work ethic; you use up much of your energy on your children making sure they are fed, nurtured, loved, and taken care of, and those are beautiful and wonderful things! So, how do you make sure that there’s time left to connect with your partner or to do self-care? Schedule it! It may sound silly or un-spontaneous, but scheduling a date night and even scheduling intimacy means they actually happen! Admittedly, options for that date night (or self-date night) are more limited when you’re quarantined and the days are short, but it’s not impossible to find fun activities you can do at home. Some of the best experiences are shared, like doing something totally new when neither person is an expert, or finding an activity that engages your physical senses. Think back to some of your first few dates: what was it about those first dates that got you to connect?

Intimate Conversations 39 | TAYLORED LIVING | WINTER 2020
In a world of digital distraction and overload, we don’t pay much attention to what we can see, hear, taste, smell, and feel right now and in this moment. Sensory-rich experiences bring us into the present and provide mindfulness amidst a chaotic world. For example, what would it be like if you were to:
EAT A MEAL in complete darkness?
LEARN TO COMMUNICATE without words?
and sing everything like you’re in a musical while you’re cooking? These are just ideas to get you thinking, but they can be a good jumping-off point to design novel experiences that will help you reconnect. Plus, they require very little time, and zero money or travel. Here are some ideas for shared or solo experiences that can engage your physical senses:
IDEAS for SHARED EXPERIENCES DiY Movie Theater Night- Rent a movie, or for a
free option, get a DVD from the library. You can even work your way through a series of movies, like Lord of the Rings, the Marvel movies, or the Harry Potter collection. Make homemade stovetop popcorn together using real butter! If you want to get super fancy, you can sprinkle on some shaved parmesan and a drizzle of truffle oil. If you’re more sweet than savory oriented, get a pint of artisan ice cream. The ice creams from local bakery Ethos are a must-have.
DIY Cooking Class- Cook a cozy and warming dish you’ve never made before, like a soup or stew, or bake something together.
Game Night- Play a board game or card game that suits two people, or virtually gather a group of friends for an online game night with GameNightOut.com.
Dance to Music- If you want something structured, take an online dance course, or just crank up something fun and jam!
41 | TAYLORED LIVING | WINTER 2020
Calming Bath Soak:
IDEAS for SOLO EXPERIENCES
Dissolve two cups of Epsom salts in a warm bath and soak in it for twenty minutes (a few drops of essential oil is optional). Epsom salt is magnesium salt, which is calming, relaxes your muscles, and helps promote sleep if you do it right before bed.
Read with Wine or Tea:
Read a beloved book with a glass of nice wine or cup of tea in your favorite mug. (Do support local, and buy that wine from a local winery or wine bar!) The library is still open for curbside pickup, or if you want a book right away, use the Libby app to check out digital books and audiobooks using your library card.
Bake a Cozy Sweet Treat:
Bake something simple that still feels luxurious, like biscotti. Bonus points if you bring some of it to a friend, because you’ll make her day!
A long walk or yoga session will help you to feel more grounded and able to let go of the chaos of the day. The YouTube channel called Yoga with Adriene has a bunch of beginner yoga videos that are very simple and easy to do even if you’re a complete newbie to yoga.
It can take some time and effort to get in the habit of scheduling, but it pays off. Because these activities involve focused time, at the end of the day, or week, and even in the years to come, they will be the moments you remember.

Supplements for Immune Health:
can You Over-Supplement? by Anne Henriksen, Pharm.D. Malley’s Compounding Pharmacy photos by Meghan Rickard
Between cold and flu season and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we’re all looking for ways to get and stay healthy. That could mean increasing the doses of supplements we already take, or adding additional supplements to our toolboxes. But is that a good idea? Can adding more of a good thing be bad?
Many immune-boosting supplements contain multiple ingredients. If you are taking something with many ingredients, make sure you read the label carefully! If you add a second supplement, compare the two labels. Multi-ingredient supplements are typically named for what they treat rather than for what they contain, and utilize advertising phrases such as providing “Daily Immune Support.” In contrast, single-ingredient supplements are usually labeled with what they actually do contain, like Vitamin C 500mg. This can get confusing when you start to take multiple supplements. Carefully read the ingredients under “supplement facts” on the labeling to see what ingredients the supplement contains, and note each ingredient’s specific amounts. Then cross-reference each ingredient to check for duplicates between supplements. It’s easy to start to take too much of a particular supplement, vitamin, or herb when you’re attempting to add extra immune support to your routine during the cold and flu season.
43 | TAYLORED LIVING | WINTER 2020
Adding an additional supplement to your daily multivitamin which contains ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin D, B vitamins, or zinc could lead to over-supplementation. This could cause upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, headache, even kidney stones! High doses of Vitamin C will commonly cause diarrhea. Long-term high-dose zinc supplementation is not recommended. Also, zinc nasal sprays have been shown to cause permanent loss of smell, so avoid the use of nasal sprays containing zinc! Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, so it stores in the body over time. Taking large amounts of this vitamin over long periods can lead to increasingly severe side effects. Note: your healthcare provider can check your vitamin D levels. NAC, melatonin, quercetin, garlic, and curcumin are gaining attention as possible immune-boosting supplements. Some herbs and supplements, however, can interact with prescription medications or cause side effects, most commonly GI upset or headache. Melatonin boosts immunity, but remember to take melatonin only at bedtime regardless of why you are taking it to decrease the risk of daytime drowsiness. Garlic’s most notorious side effect is bad breath! Prevent bad breath by using an enteric-coated formulation. Immediately stop any supplement if you develop an allergic reaction!
Your immune system starts in your gut. Probiotics are “friendly” bacteria and yeast supplements are used to support gut health. Even large doses of probiotics are considered safe unless one has a weakened immune system, yeast allergy, or damaged heart valve. Be a smart consumer when purchasing supplements because not all supplements are created equal. Supplement companies do not have to validate the claims they make through the FDA, so if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Right now there is no supplement proven to prevent or treat COVID-19. Recent studies have exposed quality issues that some products do not contain ingredients as listed, or contain impurities. It is best to purchase supplements from trustworthy brands and at a reliable source. More is not always better, and a well-thought-out, targeted supplement plan of high-quality supplements that takes into account your health goals is the best approach. If you have a question about if a supplement might be right for you, or if you are concerned about whether or not a supplement you are taking is safe, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
Some supplements such as echinacea, elderberry, and various mushroom extracts work by stimulating your immune system, but those with autoimmune disorders should avoid these supplements to prevent an increase in disease symptoms.

Understanding & Treating Fatigue By Jessica Schneider, MD | EmpoweredHealthInstitute.com
If you have been experiencing fatigue, whether chronically or intermittently, you are not alone. Everyone who experiences fatigue describes it differently, as the triggers and effects vary from person to person. Fatigued is generally defined as “extreme tiredness resulting from mental or physical exertion or illness.” This encompasses a wide range of symptoms and situations, and is so different for each person that it can make finding a solution more challenging.
Acute vs. Chronic Fatigue Acute fatigue is often caused by underlying illness or overexertion and clears up after rest or healing. Chronic fatigue is defined by at least six months of fatigue that cannot be attributed to ongoing exertion and cannot be alleviated with rest. This type of fatigue is often disabling, as it is associated with a substantial reduction in activity levels. Because fatigue has so many variables and presents differently from person to person, even with acute and chronic fatigue there are differences. For some, fatigue can last all day every day, while others may only
experience their symptoms in the morning or afternoon. Some may vary by day of week as well, feeling more fatigued earlier in the week than later. Fatigue can also come in “flare ups,” where individuals may only experience fatigue periodically.
Primary vs. Secondary Fatigue Most commonly, fatigue is considered secondary fatigue, meaning that it is related to an underlying disease process. The list of illnesses which contribute to or have symptoms of fatigue are long, but sleep apnea, autoimmune conditions and thyroid dysfunction are at the top of the list. Primary fatigue is a case when fatigue is not related to any known underlying medical condition. An example of this type is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which is just starting to be understood by the medical community. Both types of fatigue may be contributed to or worsened by lifestyle factors like poor sleep, lack of physical exertion, chronic stress and other similar triggers.

This article is part of a larger Resource Guide focused on Fatigue that is curated by the Empowered Health Institute team of experts. For more information and additional proscriptive treatments to combat fatigue, visit www.EmpoweredHealthInstitute.com and download the full Fatigue Resource Guide.
How Fatigue Affects Us
Most estimates suggest that around 20-30% of the general population suffer from persistent and troublesome fatigue, and 10-20% of primary care appointments involve fatigue as a main or secondary complaint. Since fatigue can lead to unhealthy lifestyle choices, cardiovascular disease and depression, this prevalence of fatigue is worrisome. Fatigue can present as feelings of tiredness, muscle weakness or mental fatigue that impact our lives in numerous ways. It can disrupt our regular routine by making it difficult to complete or find motivation to start everyday activities. Chores that once seemed simple may now feel they take a monumental amount of energy to complete. This disruption to everyday life also affects our mood. When you no longer have the energy to do things that bring joy to your life, or in some cases, the energy to even take care of oneself, it can be hard to keep a cheery disposition. It’s very common for people who suffer from chronic fatigue to also suffer from depression. Fatigue can often present itself as muscle fatigue, making it difficult to exercise or move as one once was able to. For some this may mean they find themselves moving slower, walking less, or walking shorter distances. Work, both at home and at the office, can be affected by fatigue. Completing tasks and responsibilities can be a challenge when you lack the amount of energy you’re used to. Household responsibilities can become overwhelming. Projects at the office may not get done until after the deadline or may lack the typical quality. Social relationships may suffer when someone has fatigue. Getting out of the house to do things with friends may be difficult, especially when you’d rather spend time napping. Even when you do hang out with friends, you may not feel totally engaged.
How to Fight Fatigue EXERCISE | It may seem counterintuitive to tell someone who feels exhausted to work out. It can be daunting to motivate yourself to exercise when you feel so fatigued. However, consistent exercise won’t leave you feeling tired or drained. Instead, you will feel more energized and alert. When you move, even a brief walk around the block, your body releases the hormones epinephrine and norepinephrine. These are stress hormones that when triggered by exercise act to energize you. Movement improves oxygen circulation throughout the body which in turns increases energy levels. You will also find your sleep will improve with regular exercise. SLEEP | Of the lifestyle factors that could influence fatigue, ensuring healthy sleep hygiene could be one of the more important habits to adjust. Routinely missing out on quality sleep affects your overall health and can make you more prone to heart disease, diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure. RELAXATION| Finding balance in life can be a challenge. One way to counter our busy schedules is to make a concerted effort to schedule in time for rest and relaxation. Whether you decide to do this in small spurts each day or take an entire day off each week, making time for this essential part of a healthy lifestyle is crucial to counteract the effects of chronic stress. How you choose to rest and relax depends on what works for you. For some it can be as simple as taking a moment to do a few deep breaths. For others it might include meditation, getting outdoors or participating in a playful activity.

A glance at the benefits of light therapy and Infrared Saunas
Look on the Bright Side : Beat the winter blues with Light Therapy! by Lindsay Kirby | Sculpt Wellness Spa | photos by Meghan Rickard
For assistance with seasonal mood disorders, look on the “bright side.”
negative risks! It is believed that part of “Seasonal Affective Disorder” (SAD) is caused by our decreased exposure to the sun’s rays. The bummer is, not only have we been quarantining before and throughout the summer here in the Tri-Cities, we’ve also experienced the compound effect of having less sun during the summer months because of those darn smoke-filled weeks that we’ve had for several years in a row.
Imagine yourself on a beach, lying in the sun, completely relaxed. Now, consider why the image of lying in the sun correlates with your relaxed, content, happy feeling. Why is it that when you see an ad for a drug to treat depression on TV, you see images of people outside in the sun which suggests that they are happier?
Personally, I have noticed that “seasonal affective” is actually hitting me earlier and earlier each year. The grey skies and dark evenings impact my energy, mood, and outlook. If you, too, find yourself feeling more down during the winter, an infrared sauna session can be a wonderful, safe and effective experience that you can add into your routine. And, bonus—infrared not only has been shown to boost mood, it can bring other positive side effects: it promotes healthy skin, improves circulation, detoxifies, promotes cardiovascular health, reduces inflammation, provides immune system support, enhances weight loss, and more!
There is a reason—and that reason is because we inherently relate the sun to a happy and relaxed feeling. Further, science is now proving that exposure to part of the sun’s rays (called “infrared wavelengths”) actually DO make us happier. Unfortunately, we also know that (too much) basking in the sun brings health risks caused by excessive exposure to certain harmful UV rays. The sun, however, has many types of rays, and infrared wavelengths are the GOOD ones which, when isolated, have been shown to provide many positive health benefits without those
“Hotter isn’t better when it comes to the health benefits of infrared.” -Lindsay
There are a few different types of infrared wavelengths, and I suggest that you find an infrared therapy that provides all three: near, far, and mid. Each wavelength has different benefits, and it isn’t understood yet which infrared is most beneficial for mood and energy. There has been a study that only used near infrared, but there are many wellness experts and researchers who back using all three wavelengths for maximum health benefits. Hotter isn’t better when it comes to the health benefits of infrared. This is a common misconception we go over with our clients at Sculpt Tri-Cities when we begin to get them into maximum infrared detox shape. I estimate 85% of our clients do not sweat during their first 30-45-minute Sunlighten Sauna Session, and this is a signal that they really do need the infrared exposure! Their cellular dehydration, chronic poor circulation, and tissue inflammation must be reversed for them to achieve a good, deep sweat in an infrared sauna session. For them (and for you) the most beneficial session for mood and health is when you find it comfortably warm and easy to breathe. If you’re a “sun loving lizard” like me, you may have to accept and embrace the fact that mild warmth really is best for you, and learn enjoy the amazing benefits happening within your body while you melt into relaxation and feel yourself beginning to warm up from the inside out.

How Therapy Light Can Help Banish the Winter Blues by Rosemary Fotheringham Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
Light therapy boxes are designed to bring spring and summer light levels into your house on depressing winter days. When there’s less natural light, many people gain weight, feel fatigued, lethargic, and moody, and struggle to get out of bed in the morning. When levels of light are higher, people feel more energetic, active, and alert, like they would in spring and summer. If you struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder, or just the winter blues, a therapy lamp can help reduce the negative effects of these short, dark winter days and get you feeling better in as little as three to five days. Look for one that has at least 10,000 lux (the measure of brightness). A fluorescent lamp with a light diffuser is preferable to an LED lamp, as bare LED rays can damage your retinas. It’s recommended that you start with 20-30 minutes of use in the morning. For it to be most effective, you should sit within two feet of the light source and look directly at it. I use the Alaska Northern Lights “Northstar 10,000,” available at: AlaskaNorthernLights.com It’s big, bulky, and expensive at $299, but I always have a marked improvement in my energy and mood after I use it. For those who struggle to get out of bed in the morning, a “dawn simulator” alarm clock that mimics the light of sunrise can help regulate your body’s internal clock, ease the transition to wakefulness, and help you feel more energetic and refreshed throughout your day. If you are using or thinking of using light therapy boxes or dawn simulator alarm clocks, I highly recommend that you read the book Winter Blues, by Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal, which explains what Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is, and the various strategies that can help you cope with it including light therapy.

Salt Lamps There are claims that salt lamps provide your home with environmental and physiological benefits such as improving air quality, boosting your mood, and helping you sleep better at night; but there is not enough evidence to confirm this is true. While beneficial light therapy does exist in the form of infrared light sourcing (see our feature on light therapy), we wouldn’t suggest that you leave your health up to that salt lamp on your dresser. We can’t recommend salt lamps as a restorative treatment, but we do love salt lamps for their aesthetic appearance. And yes, just in case you’re wondering, we can confirm that they (do) taste salty after we heard of an inquisitive child who decided to lick one.

recommendations for adding a little Art and Culture into your year!
production from the Academy of Children’s Theatre. So much energy! So much budding talent! ACT is well-run and innovative.
Art & Culture
2) The Mid-Columbia Regional Ballet’s
by Karen Bertsch | photography by Jill Clayton
annual performance of The Nutcracker which is a treat and a great way to get into the holiday spirit. And most importantly, it’s always good!
Having lived in the Tri-Cities virtually all of my life,
I have heard a million complaints about our having no culture here. Baloney!
3) Productions at CBC, Hanford
We have art galleries, and Allied Art’s Art in the Park, some good shopping (I call that culture), a few fairly-fancy movie theaters, and a plethora of libraries.
High, and Richland High: whatever they’re offering and appeals to you will be worth it. I’ve enjoyed every production I’ve seen at those three schools.
There are a variety of local fairs, ranging from the Renaissance Fair to the Benton Franklin County Fair and Rodeo.
The Mid-Columbia Musical Theater and the Richland Players— their productions can be hit or a miss, but when they’re good, they’re great!
We’re fortunate to have several rather fabulous orchestras: The 75-year-old Mid-Columbia Symphony has had to lay off 60+ musicians but is working on producing some live-streaming content and digitizing many of their past performances that are on reel-to-reel or cassette (that’s a hint to other organizations!) We also enjoy Camerata Musica, Classical Guitar Society, Columbia Basin Jazz Orchestra, a hand bell group, a Bluegrass Festival, the Mid-Columbia Youth Orchestra and Cadet Strings; then, we have choirs like the Mastersingers, youth choirs Forte and Treble Forte (who sing and dance), and Columbia Chorale.
5) Something that is new to you! We went to the Renaissance Fair for the first time, and it was a truly unique experience! Who knew? Or go to Gallery at the Park in Richland. It may wow you! There’s an abundance of art here in the Tri-Cities, and if you want even more, head to Walla Walla and Prosser!
Our Academy of Children’s Theater, Mid-Columbia Regional Ballet and Broadway at the Toyota Center bring well-known classics while the Rude Mechanicals offer new productions.
Many of these organizations have created virtual ways to experience what they have to offer. Learn more at their websites, and when the marquees light up again, go visit them and support these hard-working people.
We even have a film festival! If you haven’t seen a production at Columbia Basin College or at one of the local high-schools, you are missing out. We can be proud of our very own 70-year-old Richland Players, and count on our 72-year-old Mid-Columbia Musical Theater for our favorite musicals. So, there you have it. Culture! Now, here’s a list of five different organizations that you must go see in 2021.
You won’t regret it!

Mid-Columbia Youth Orchestra (MCYO) is an educational arm of the Mid-Columbia Symphony (MCS) and has been the premier educational symphony experience for students from all over the Tri-Cities and surrounding area for decades. In 2015, after the program had been inactive for several years, Adrienne Fletcher was hired by the Mid-Columbia Symphony to revive the program and serve as Assistant Conductor of the professional symphony. Under her leadership the program has grown to encompass two ensembles, Youth Symphony and Cadet Strings, and has an average of 75-80 students each year. MCYO is an auditioned program for young symphony musicians of the Mid-Columbia region. Students from schools all throughout the Tri-Cities audition for a seat in one of our ensembles. Both ensembles meet once weekly on Thursday evenings to rehearse advanced level repertoire and perform three full length concerts each season. In collaboration with the Academy of Children’s Theatre, the students of MCYO were the pit musicians for Matilda, The Wizard of Oz, and Beauty and the Beast. Cadet Strings and Youth Symphony have participated in Fundraisers for MCS, Mid-Columbia Arts Fundraiser (MCAF), and the REACH. They have performed alongside MCS with Grammy Award winning Mark O’Connor and joined forces with Yakima Youth Symphony Orchestra in the South-Central Symphony Workshop. MCYO is dedicated to empowering young musicians by building community through the symphonic experience. Adrienne Fletcher is a fierce advocate for youth music education and creates an environment where students can learn and grow graciously. The program works to
Pictured Left to Right Emmeline Mckinnon, Bass Adrienne Fletcher, Music Director Eden Roskelley, Violin Alaina Roskelley, Cello
build individual skills by challenging the students with advanced repertoire in a fast-paced setting and bringing in professional musicians as coaches for each section. Students in MCYO develop high-level ensemble skills by learning to listen, be responsive, and be communicative. MCYO also prioritizes community-building experiences. Youth orchestra programs are far more than an opportunity for students to play music, but an experience that they carry with them as they go through life. A diverse and multi-faceted arts education gives students the skills to be empathetic, innovative, and discerning members of society. Collaborative arts teach students how to make mistakes, acknowledge them, and correct them in a team environment. Students in MCYO learn how to work better in collaboration with those around them. Though virtual this past fall and for the upcoming winter session, MCYO is dedicated to providing high quality and innovative symphony programming. Adrienne Fletcher has developed an adjusted curriculum that complements and supplements local schools’ programs and private lessons. Both groups are meeting virtually and have been working with coaches, developing reading and aural (listening) skills, and exploring symphonic literature through active listening and score study. If it is necessary to stay virtual, and as we phase back to in person activities, MCYO will provide quality and engaging programing. You can find more information about the program and how to enroll on their website at midcolumbiasymphony. org. Follow MCYO and MCS on Facebook and Instagram to stay updated on projects and events!

Local Events and Shopping by Shonisee Hess
This was supposed to be the first article of the new Taylored Living Events Column, a page you could flip to and be greeted with a curated line up of what’s happening in the coming months in the Tri-Cities and surrounding areas: artisan pop-up shops, markets, grand openings, seasonal events and more. This presents another little way to connect our community of readers to our community of local businesses. But just like the rest of 2020, writing this column didn’t exactly go as expected. As I began reaching out to business owners and community organizers to inquire about events they may be planning for the New Year, the responses I received were more or less the same from everyone: The future is too uncertain to plan on. It takes a lot of time, intention, and preparation to put on any sized event: communicating between vendors, hours of research and planning, then, finally putting it all together. Elena, owner of Layered Cake Artistry in downtown Kennewick explained that they “don’t want to put any other vendors out” by planning an event and waiting to find out if it will be approved depending on what COVID phase our county is in at the time.
She sympathizes with the vendors she partners with, and says, “We know they have to plan ahead of time, craft and order items. We would hate to cancel on them at the last minute if we decided to ‘wait and see’ and then couldn’t go ahead with it.” Elena spoke with several local health department employees who kindly answered her questions and confirmed that indoor events and gatherings are not allowed under the current guidelines. So, what next? Without the annual Valentine’s Day event to look forward to, Elena plans to offer special items for Valentine’s Day pre-orders instead. And so it goes. We adapt, and adjust, and show that our resilience is our strongest asset through these unprecedented times. From children transitioning to online learning, friends and family attending weddings and holidays via Zoom call, small businesses updating their services to be available no matter the circumstances – we’ve seen an incredible wave of ingenuity this year just to make all of the big and small events in our lives work. While we don’t know what the months ahead will look like, we can find comfort in knowing that we’re all in this together, doing our best with what we have to work with.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the wine... Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the process. by JJ Williams | Kiona Vineyard photos by Meghan Rickard
Imagine standing in a vineyard in mid-September. The sky is blue, the weather is pleasantly warm, leaves are gently blowing in the breeze. It's taken a year of hard work to get to this point: the pruning, the training, the watering, the thinning. Beautiful, tasty golden grapes glisten in the sun, with a perfect sugar to acid balance and delightful flavor. They'd make a lovely off-dry wine. Then imagine deciding not to pick those beautiful grapes on that idyllic September morning, foregoing the opportunity to make that lovely off-dry wine. There's a different, more ambitious goal in mind here, one that requires a leap of faith and a willingness to lose the entire crop: we're talking about Ice Wine, one of Mother Nature's more luxurious creations. Wine grapes grown in the Tri-Cities area, especially those used to make white wines, are typically picked in September. For Ice Wine, grapes are picked sometime from November to January. That extra time on the vine accomplishes a couple of things. The first is an "over-ripening" of the fruit. If our mid-September pick is like a slightly green banana, the Ice Wine pick is like a black, mushy banana. The fruit is the same, just separated by time: sugar to acid ratios change, aromatics shift, textures soften, etc. It makes intrinsic sense that a wine made from super-ripe (read: sweet) grapes will be sweet.

ice wine cont. The second thing we're waiting for, as the name implies, is a “hard freeze.” Mother Nature is in the driver's seat here as we must pick the fruit while it is naturally frozen in the vineyard. We can't pick it and then freeze it artificially; it must be frozen on-the-vine. Waiting for that freeze can be nerve-wracking, as each day that we delay some of the crop is lost to birds, rot, gravity, wind, etc. It's a calculated game of attrition: will the grapes freeze before we lose the crop?
When we pick Chenin Blanc, a variety of grape, to make off-dry table wine (in September), we can expect a yield of approximately 160 gallons of unfermented juice per one ton of fruit. The same one ton of Chenin Blanc grapes, picked while frozen on a cold November morning, will typically yield about 80 gallons of highly-concentrated unfermented juice. The natural freezing process has removed roughly half of the water from the equation. Even after we account for the pre-pick losses and the risk of waiting for the freeze (which is not guaranteed), there’s a precipitous drop in our yield. "It's not anything like the sweet wine your auntie loved," suggests Mellissa Whitaker, our enologist extraordinaire. "It's unexpectedly bright and balanced, sweet without being sticky. It makes your mouth water."
Ice Wine, therefore, is a process, not a specific wine. By picking and pressing the grapes while frozen, we can capture the grapes’ essence and present it to the drinker as an unabashedly delicious liquid dessert, courtesy of Mother Nature. Why wait until it freezes, you might ask? Fruit (and, by extension, fruit juice) is mostly water. An orange is mostly water with a little bit of sugar, acid, and flavor components that make it taste like an orange. When it's juiced, the resulting liquid is, therefore, mostly water. The same can be said for grapes. By picking the grapes while they are frozen and pressing them right away, we can remove a significant portion of the water that would typically dilute the juice; it's trapped in solid form as ice in the press. The super-concentrated nectar that seeps out is what we ferment into Ice Wine.
So while other wineries get to wrap things up earlier than we do at Kiona Vineyards, we know that what we're making is worth the wait. For Mellissa, the Ice Wine pick means she's near the end of a grueling 2.5 monthlong harvest. "Ice Wine is always the last thing we process in any given vintage, so when we're finally able to pick it and get the fermentation going, it's a nice signal that harvest is coming to a close. We can take a deep breath because we're at the end. It takes a lot of time and patience to achieve Ice Wine greatness, but when we do, it's really something special."
Picture a fruit popsicle. It's possible to suck the tasty sugar and flavor out of the popsicle while leaving the ice behind. Every kid has done this, and what they're getting is sweeter and more intense than what they'd get if they were to eat the popsicle "normally." They're separating the water from the flavor components. And that's what we're doing when we press naturally-frozen wine grapes to make Ice Wine.

Red Mountain Grass-Fed and grass-finished Beef
By Rene’ Groom | photo by Meghan Rickard
Gary Johnson is not your average rancher in that he was not “born into” the cattle business. His Red Mountain Grass-Fed Beef operation came out of a place of personal growth through education and science. “I have been interested in the conversations around health and healthful eating for most of my adult life,” says Johnson. “I have followed the research and have watched people I know (and care about) find answers for their health challenges, both physical and mental, with changes in what they eat. It seemed a natural progression of thought to consider that if we can control some aspects of our health by simply making better choices in what we eat, couldn’t that also be true for the animals we consume?” Originally from California, Johnson came to the inland Northwest to help his dad. That was a “temporary situation” that has lasted more than forty years! “It didn’t take me long, once I was here, to feel that it was home,” Gary shares. “It took a couple of years to find the perfect place to put down roots, but when this place became available, I grabbed it and instantly fell in love with the land.”

For the last twenty years, Gary’s little slice of heaven has been a picturesque fifteen acres on the west bank of the Yakima River. His tree-lined paddocks are home to a variety of birds, squirrels, and other wildlife, and the east end of the ranch offers a tranquil and therapeutic setting for man and beast alike. Aware of its healing powers, Johnson shares that he likes to make the space available for people to come and sit for a while, and has even dreamed about one day making it into a retreat of sorts. But for now, it is Gary Johnson and sixteen head of black Angus cattle that call this paradise, home. More than just a ranch, Red Mountain Grass-Fed Beef is an opportunity for Gary to share with others his years of research on the topic of “We are what we eat.” He is a self-described advocate of a lifestyle that promotes the benefits of the grass-fed and grass-finished philosophy, not just for what we humans consume, but also for the benefits it provides to the animals and to the land they are raised on. Gary explains, “As I examined the various debates regarding what healthful nutrition actually is, I found that I always went back to the simple question of ‘What did my grandparents do?’ The answer always was, ‘Allow nature to do what nature does, and only help when needed.’” In addition to his willingness to share his philosophy with those who are interested in why grass-fed beef is best, Gary also likes to host school groups, and to help students learn about earth science and soil conditions. Over the years, Gary has heard critics describe grassfed and grass-finished as a “trend” or a “niche market.” Gary simply reminds us that his strategy isn’t a new way at all, but instead is a return to how beef production (used) to be. A special thank you to the Monson family for allowing us to photograph their cattle for this feature.
As any good educator would do, Gary is quick to make sure that those who are interested in the benefits of grass-fed and grass-finished beef understand what they are buying, so he takes the time to educate us on the various marketing trends that do not necessarily mean what the consumer might think they mean. “Labels are important,” says Gary, “but getting to know and to have a relationship with your producers is key. Ask questions. Check out how they are raising their animals. Ask what their harvesting rituals are and how they are treating the land.” While Red Mountain Grass-Fed Beef has not yet taken the steps to become certified organic, Gary is clear that he does not use pesticides on his grass: weeds are pulled or cut out of the land, and his ranch does not treat the cattle with antibiotics or hormones. Gary brings yearlings home to the ranch in March of each year, and those cattle stay at the ranch until the late fall harvest. Red Mountain Grass-Fed Beef offers customers the choice of buying whole, half, or quarter sections, and the prices include cutting and wrapping. Visitors to the ranch can look out over the fields and easily see the health of the grassland upon which the cattle graze. “I enjoy our customers,” Gary says, “I have met the most amazing people through this experience!” Red Mountain Grass-Fed Beef takes orders year-round, and Gary can be reached through the ranch website www.redmountaingrassfedbeef.com Other Grass-Fed Beef producers in our area are:

FAVORITE FEMALE FOUNDER
What’s your backstory? Why did you get into this business and do what you do? After health struggles that lead to five surgeries, I was unable to work for six to seven years and determined I would need to work for myself. I used to live in Florida, where I worked for Gannett (the largest publishing company in the United States, at that time). The company gifted employees each Christmas with a ham or turkey from The Honey Baked Ham Company. Therefore, I was familiar with the product. In some parts of the country, the lines are out the door, with security officers on site. Oftentimes, pre-ordering for holidays was the only way to ensure a customer would be able to even buy a ham or turkey. Honey Baked Ham is an excellent product. Because of this, I knew that I wanted to open a store in the Tri-Cities.
The Nomination of Vivian D. Terrell:
“I first approached Vivian’s business, The Honey Baked
Ham Company, after leaving the gym next door and I decided to explore. I ordered box lunches and I got exceptional customer service. When she asked me what the order was for, I mentioned it was going to feed advocates for Domestic Violence Services of Benton & Franklin Counties. I learned that I was speaking to the owner, Vivian, who was also passionate about her community and has volunteered for domestic violence services in the past. In addition to being a business owner, Vivian is a trained crisis-line volunteer, and so much more! Her love for her customers, community and exceptional customer service is why Vivian is our Favorite Female Founder this Winter!
Where are you from? Where have you been? Where do you see yourself in the future? I grew up in Venus, Florida, and went to Florida State University, graduating with a BA in Communications, and a double minor in Business and Criminology. I started my career working as a reporter for the Fort Myers NewsPress, in Florida. Later, I moved over to a position in sales to earn more income. Then life happened as it does, and an injury sidelined me for over six years. My life after Honey Baked, when I can no longer stand all day, will involve volunteering, specifically for a suicide hotline for teenagers. I am passionate about this, and many are struggling during the pandemic. [Suicide hotline 1-800-273-8255 (or Text Hello, CONNECT to 741741)]
-Deborah What services does your business offer?

We offer premium Honey Baked Hams (of all sizes), ham slices, whole turkeys, turkey breast, desserts and side dishes that are ready to enjoy. When you pickup our hams and turkey breasts they are fully cooked, glazed, sliced and ready to eat. In addition, dine-in and take out lunch is available. The menu includes sandwiches, soups, deli-sides, salads, drinks, cookies, and sliced desserts.
Any major obstacles professionally or personally that you feel you overcame? Yes, the surgeries that I went through took years to heal. I wasn’t able to stand or walk and had debilitating headaches. Eventually, I was able to use a walker, and then a cane, and now I walk freely. My struggles taught me a zest for life and I look forward to helping lighten my customers’ day and serve them. Monday is my favorite day of the week. Life has taught me to look forward because that is where hope is. I got through the hard times by looking forward.
Tell us a little about your family…. My mother passed away when she was young, and I had two younger sisters who I helped raise. I continue to be involved with helping my sisters and nieces and helped to put them through college. Family is very important to me.
Any advice for other women who are already in business or wish to go into business for themselves? Trust your instincts and believe in yourself. Move forward and do not give up! 62

Sybil Knight-Burney, who is the Superintendent of Schools for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania: she and I have been friends for many years, (way back when she was a teacher in Fort Meyer). Of course, Oprah is one of many trailblazers I could point to, but for me, Cybil is tangible. I can see her, feel her, and bounce ideas off her. She walks with me and it is real. What volunteer projects have you done in the past for others? Are there any other future projects that you’re planning or looking forward to? I am a Crisis Line, trained and certified, volunteer. I have volunteered for Domestic Violence Services in three different states. Although, I have not experienced it personally, I feel deeply for those impacted by it. I also have volunteered at the Kadlec Cancer Resource Center. I’m actively involved with my sorority, Delta Sigma Beta, as well as the Mission Society at my church. Then, as I mentioned earlier, I would like to be involved with a suicide hotline for teens in the future..
GET TO KNOW VIVIAN Five Fun Facts:
