Former ‘YES’ students

River art on display

Culture is often invisible to the encultured. We sometimes forget that people around the world lead lives very different from ours. To gain a little perspective, some people host international exchange students. One program, NW Services, goes even further by bringing students from predominantly Muslim countries that Americans need and want to understand better. Created by the state department in the wake of September 11, the Youth Exchange and Study Program (YES) is facilitated locally by Pacific University graduate Nicole Nowlin who works with the NW Services PEACE Program. Nicole is placing students and looking for ‘welcome families’ on the Westside for the 2012/13 school year. Contact her for more info: 866-576-3977 or npnowlin@nw-services.com.

Heather L. Wells has set out to capture the essence of Oregon rivers through her photography. Whether using her lens to examine riverbanks or the relationship between light and water, Wells has taken pictures of rivers in the Mt. Hood Wilderness, Eagle Creek Wilderness, and the Wilson Metolius River by Heather L. Wells River. This month Wells will display her photography at Summa Real Estate Group in Downtown Hillsboro. A reception for the photographer will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday August 7 at the real estate office on Main Street. Summa will host another event this month, celebrating its two-year anniversary in business. Join the agents for food, music, and entertainment on August 28 during the final Tuesday Marketplace of the year. For more information, visit www.heatherljwellsphotography.com

Celebrating garlic

Coyote’s for a cause

Say ‘YES’ to culture

Coyote’s Bar and Grill in Hillsboro will host two events to benefit Greenlink Community Development Foundation, a local organization with the goal of helping people facing economic hardships. The community is invited to attend a ‘Cruise In’ classic car event starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday August 18 hosted at the restaurant at 5301 W Baseline Road. Proceeds from the event will go to benefit Greenlink. Then on Saturday August 25, Coyote’s will host a motorcycle poker run with festivities also starting at 11 a.m. For more information about the events, call (503) 260-0449. Garlic has been used around the world for centuries in cuisine, for medicinal purposes, and to ward off evil spirits. This month, you can celebrate locally grown garlic and whatever purposes you use it for at the 15th annual Elephant Garlic Festival in North Plains August 10 -12. With local musicians, food booths serving up garlicky dishes, arts and crafts, a parade, and more, the garlic festival will be held at the Jessie Mays Community Center at 30955 NW Hillcrest in North Plains. Festivities begin Friday at 12 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.funstinks.com

The crew seeks out colorful, cultural hot beds - like this San Francisco market - in their travels.

They’ve got ‘The Rhythm and The Flavor’ Westside natives who created and star in a stylish “new age” travel reality show hope to get a network gig and continue the pursuit of beats and food By Cindy Dauer It’s like if a hispter from Portlandia went on a road trip with Rick Steves, except fewer pompous scenarios, more spontaneous moments and grit in your teeth. That’s The Rhythm and the Flavor - a “new age” travel show that’s part reality television and part travelogue. At least two full episodes of the web-based project have been released so far, starring hosts and Gaston natives Parker Bolden, his sister Lisa Bolden, and AJ Ramadan. For viewers, the show not only takes them to the places where culture is being shaped, it presents creative content in a highly-stylized production with a killer soundtrack. So far the project has been funded primarily by donations and sponsorships on indiegogo, a fundraising website for independent art and film projects. But the crew - which also includes videographer Mike Nipper and producer Sarah Savier - is hoping to land a bigger sponsor or a network deal. As of recently, the group has explored Portland, Seattle, Vancouver BC, and San Francisco, video cam-

eras in tow. They’ve sought out the sites behind the scenes, attempting to capture the essence of each city. Combing through hours of footage, they splice together a brilliant balance of their personal story and the stories of those they are featuring. Since they started the project in December 2011, they’ve traveled some 20,000 miles, split off from their former production company, and started to make a name for themselves on social media. The group behind The Rhythm and the Flavor plans to release episodes three and four - Vancouver BC and San Francisco - soon. The Portland and Seattle episodes can be viewed on the project website. The final cut of each episode is the result of what Parker Bolden calls “gravitational creativity”, where people of like minds are pulled together through their passions and their projects. “We are drawn to people and they are drawn to us,” Parker Bolden explains of how the group finds content for its episodes. He and Ramadan have also used resources

like Craigslist to find underground bands and culture. For friends Parker Bolden and Ramadan, traveling became their calling when they turned their lives upside down in 2010, leaving their studies at Portland Community College, quitting their food service jobs, breaking off emotional engagements, and hitting the road. They took off with a few hundred dollars in their pockets, went to 27 states and seven islands - and came home with a few hundred dollars in their pockets; they got good at traveling and took odd jobs along the way. After doing some on-camera work for a snowboarding event, they decided to enlist Parker’s sister, Lisa Bolden - an aspiring filmmaker - in what originally started as an idea for a travel blog and is now a web-based series. To find out more and watch episodes, check out: www.therhythmandtheflavor.com The team is also seeking donations to continue their pursuit of The Rhythm and The Flavor.

Wetland walks on the Westside The Tualatin River and its feeder creeks meander through the Westside, from origins in the Tillamook State Forest west of Forest Grove to The City of Tualatin where it crosses the county line and flows into the Willamette River near Oregon City. As things heat up this summer, you could head to the coast, or you could turn to the river. There are several great places to walk near river wetlands and see native plants and animals along the way. Check out these sites to get close to the water without having to go too far. Fernhill Wetlands, Forest Grove

Tualatin Hills Nature Park, Beaverton

Phase one of the wetlands improvement project is now underway at the 748-acre property, but you can still enjoy the walking trails and wildlife viewing with few disruptions. Restrooms and a picnic facility were also recently constructed.

While not on the Tualatin River, this park includes wetland areas around Cedar Mill Creek and Beaverton Creek with walking trails and a nature center. Check out the smaller, Beaverton Creek Wetlands on the other side of Milikan Way.

Jackson Bottom Wetlands, Hillsboro

Tualatin River Wildlife Refuge, Sherwood

Walk the trails around this wetland, or check out the Education Center (built in 2003) to learn more about the plants, animals, and ecosystem found there. Bring your camera for the wetlands and your thinking cap for the education center.

Three miles of seasonal trails are open to visitors until October, so now is the time to get a different view of the refuge and wetland area located off Highway 99W. The wildlife center is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Alfresco Outdoor Theatre You may have never heard of the style of theatre called commedia dell’arte, but you would probably recognize some of the antics including slapstick fighting, hat juggling, and period costumes. This month, Masque Alfresco, which performs in the commedia dell’arte style, will bring Goldoni’s Superior Casa Nova to a park near you, for free. Though the play was

originally written in the 18th century, it has been updated with current political jokes, social barbs, and celebrity slams. Catch a performance at Bagley Park in Hillsboro on August 10-12 and on the Beaverton Library Lawn on August 18, 19, 25 and 26. All performances begin at 6:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.masquealfresco.com

Miss Massive Snowflake Miss Massive Snowflake started as a family art project and evolved into a band, explains Shane de Leon - the creative force behind what is now a trio. After playing brass with experimental Portland band Rollerball for nearly a decade, de Leon started tinkering with his own music at home. He’d lay acoustic guitar over electronic beats, getting his wife, mother-in-law, daughter, and nephew to sing. Some of the first songs de Leon ever self-recorded were Christmas songs - hence the origin of the project’s name. From there, de Leon went on to record dozens of other progressive pop songs in a series of different releases. He’s taken those songs and toured Europe seven times, playing shows in different countries, getting room and board. In addition to his family, he’s also been joined on tracks by Jeanne Kennedy Crosby on bass and most recently Andy Brown on drums. Since becoming a trio, the band has taken on a more rock-based sound, putting out the album called Like a Book earlier this year. Miss Massive Snowflake has recently played shows in Hillsboro and Astoria. The band will return to Hillsboro on Friday August 24 at Primrose and Tumbleweeds in downtown Hillsboro.

Dismal Niche Orchestra William Clark wrote many memorable things in his journal while making the famous trek across the country more than 200 years ago. He wrote one of those things while the party was stranded on a steep, rocky bank of the Columbia River during an intense winter storm. He dubbed the spot where they were stuck, “that dismal little niche.” The name stuck, and now the location is part of the National Park System. But that “dismal little niche” inspired more than misery for the Lewis and Clark expedition. It inspired a modernday fusion band that has adopted the dramatic name - Dismal Niche Orchestra. Since forming in 2005, the Hillsborobased band has collected members from around the Metro area and played a number of different shows. The band’s sound includes styles of bluegrass, rock, classical and jazz. This month, The Dismal Niche Orchestra will play a show at 9 p.m. on Friday August 10 at Ballad Town Billiards in Forest Grove. For more information about the band, visit www.dismalnicheorch.com

Hillsboro Stadium

This year everybody is going to get a free snow cone at the Cure Kids Jam and Festival on August 19 at the Hillsboro Stadium. That was Mason Smedley’s wish. Mason, who was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis at 17 months old, passed away on June 19, 2012. He was ten. The Hillsboro boy was one of approximately 17,000 people in the United States with a form of Juvenile Myositis (JM), an autoimmune disease the cause of which is unknown. Another 1,000 cases are diagnosed each year, according to the Cure JM Foundation. To raise money and help find a cure for JM, the Smedley family has put on the Cure Kids Jam and Festival every year since 2009. Despite the recent loss of their son, this year will be no exception. “Mason just wanted everybody to have fun,” said father Damon Smedley. Since the event started three years ago, the Smedley family has raised more than $200,000 for the Cure JM Foundation. The Cure Kids Jam and Festival features live music, food and vendor booths, face painting, caricature drawing and more, just about everything a kid would want in a festival. Returning to perform this year will be American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis and recording artist Jessica Lerner. Lerner wrote the song, “Hey Mason” for Mason Smedley after meeting him in a San Diego hospital. Also taking the stage will be five local bands that will battle for cash prizes. In order to compete, the bands have to receive the most votes on the Cure Kids Jam and Festival Facebook page. Local television news reporter Drew Carney - of Newschannel 8 at Sunrise - will emcee the Cure Kids Jam and festival. While Mason won’t be there this year to enjoy the festivities, his family still looks forward to raising money, offering hope and support to other children with JM. The Cure Kids Jam and Festival starts at 2 p.m. on August 19 at the Gordon Faber Recreation Center in Hillsboro. Tickets are $10 each. For more information, visit www.curekidsfest.com

[sub]URBAN

LIVING

With more mixed-use developments breaking ground and being planned for the Westside, residents can expect to find more “urban living” options By Cindy Dauer The face of the suburbs may be changing as more urban-style living communities are being planned for the Westside. Developers recently broke ground on ‘4th and Main’ in Downtown Hillsboro, a project that will create 71 market rate apartments and 10,000 square feet of new and refurbished groundfloor commercial space near the MAX station and downtown amenities. Several similar projects - which will mix residential and commercial uses in higher-density developments - are in the planning pipeline in Beaverton, Hillsboro, Forest Grove, and Tigard. Some of these projects are closer to fruition than others, including a site at 1st and Lombard streets in Downtown Beaverton. City officials have identified a potential developer for that site and are working to create a vertically mixed-use project in a style similar to 4th and Main.

16 - www.washingtoncountyreview.com

Local and regional experts say these types of urban-style developments near transit centers will create more livable, walkable communities that cater to the housing preferences of Generation Y. These mixed use developments also appeal to baby boomers, offering the option of “aging in place” with services nearby and without the upkeep that comes with single family home ownership. Mixed use developments - which can include either vertically stacked uses or a patchwork ‘village’ - represent a philosophical shift in development policies which has been in the works in the Portland Metro area since at least the ‘90s. In Washington County, planners point to Orenco Station as a successful example of this mixed-use paradigm. These mixed-use developments, experts say, are a shift away from the automobile-dependent sprawling devel-

opments that were popular in the latter half of the 20th century and included large tracts of separate residential and commercial uses, hence the rise of the suburbs and big-box malls. But while a philosophical shift has taken place toward more transit-based mixed-use development, developers and planners are waiting for the market to catch up. Orenco may be an acclaimed commercial success, but another mixed-use development on the Westside - The Beaverton Round - has so far fallen short of expectations. Ownership of that development changed hands earlier this year however, and planners are optimistic that positive changes could be in the works. Stay tuned for other mixed use developments slated for South Hillsboro and the AmberGlen neighborhoods.


The Vineyard View Life at Plum Hill Vineyards is never average. In this column, follow the lives of newbie vintners Juanita and RJ Lint who, four years ago, converted a 33-acre dairy farm just north of Gaston into a vineyard. Between making the wine, running the tasting room, managing employees, and the adventures of Ghost the winery dog, you’ll see there’s never a dull moment.

Westside Farmers Markets Few things compare to biting into a ripe summer berry and letting the sweet, sticky juice fill your mouth and tickle your taste buds. This month at local farmers markets, the berries will be out in force. From blueberries to blackberries and raspberries, there’s a berry for nearly every taste and color of the rainbow.

Yeast / yēst/ Noun: “A microscopic fungus (genus Saccharomyces, subdivision Ascomycotina) consisting of single oval cells that reproduce by budding,” and are... “a grayish-yellow preparation of this obtained chiefly from fermented beer, used as a fermenting agent, to raise bread dough, and as a...” Doesn’t sound like something that would make a grown man jump over the coffee table, but 3 weeks ago we received a new yeast “catalog”. I had it halfway into the recycle bin when RJ yelled out for joy over the opportunity to explore new yeast “experiments” with our wine. It is now in his library of yeast catalogs. While RJ was acting like a kid putting up a train set with his yeast experiments, I, the marketer, am wondering how I am ever going to market our wine (especially the whites) when they vary not only from year to year, but sometimes from tank to tank. For example, this year RJ had two tanks of Pinot Gris fermenting. He claims that is because I am too cheap to let him buy a big tank (like I can stop him from buying anything). He used 71B yeast in one tank and X5 yeast in another. One yeast acts on citric acid leaving behind a granny smith apple profile. The other yeast consumes the malolactic acid leaving behind a grapefruit profile (goes great with the Lemon Vanilla Wine Wafers). While both of these have their fans, the big hit was the “Blend” which sold out in three months. When RJ was doing his bench trials on the Pinot Gris, he wasn’t completed satisfied. So in frustration, he brought them both to the tasting room and let a few of his “closest” friends critique it. They were all happy with the crispness of the two yeast-specific gris but on a whim, RJ poured them together. That was what he was looking for and it was even better once it went through the filter and rested in the bottle. The oddity is the new “blend” wine didn’t have the profile of either the other two.
