“Roscoe Put a Bird on It” by Liz Thoresen on display at Summa Real Estate Group in Downtown Hillsboro. Meet the artist, hear music, and eat great food from 6 to 8 p.m. on June 5 at Summa.
Man Cave Decor Instead of pictographs scrawled on the walls, maybe it’s time to get some new art for the man cave in honor of Father’s Day. This month you can check out a variety of art perfect for just that at Art on Broadway. Featured pieces will include acrylic industrial landscapes by artist Stephen Kekule. Also appealing to the masculine taste are sculptures with found objects by Joe Pogan. Check out the gallery in downtown Beaverton on Broadway between Watson and Hall. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday and will hold a reception open to the public from 6 to 9 p.m. on June 9.

Disc Golf on the Westside
Photo by Cindy Dauer
There are more than 120 disc golf holes in Washington County. How many of them have you played? Disc golf is a fairly easy and inexpensive sport that you can play alone or with a group. It’s a great way to get outdoors and explore new parts of the countryside or just go for a quick round at a nearby course. In short, the game combines the best of golf - the player with the lowest score wins - and Frisbee, you throw a disc just like you would toss the classic flying saucer. You can buy special discs that start as low as $10 new. There are drivers, putters, and mid-range discs. Check out a local sporting goods store or shop online. On the Westside, there are shorter courses in parks in Hillsboro and Beaverton. There’s also a convenient course at McMenamins Grand Lodge in Forest Grove. For a day trip, check out one of the state parks - Hagg Lake and L.L. Stub Stewart - or Horning’s Hideout in North Plains. There are fees for using some of these parks.

Coenson’s Debut Novel set for Celluloid
Photo by Cindy Dauer
Driving up California’s Highway 101 in a dirty white Chevy Trailblazer, Chad Coenson was wearing his sunglasses. The semi-nomadic writer was on his way to see about a girl in Santa Barbara. That girl would eventually become his wife. But at that particular moment, it wasn’t the girl on his mind. Coenson was plotting. He was in the thick of it. What he was thinking about was a story, the basis for his 2009 debut novel, “Me and Bobby McGee.” In the car, at that moment, on the freeway, Coenson was listening to a burned CD he called “The Outlaw Mix.” It was filled with songs by ever-wise and rough-tongued country greats like Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. When Kris Kristofferson went into the chorus, Coenson heard it. “Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose,” the song goes. That idea would be at the core of Coenson’ satirical work which criticizes the epidemic of apathy and complacency in this country through the absurdity of Keesey Cypher’s tale. Cypher, a gambler, former CIA agent and fellow with few redeeming qualities, is the quasi-protagonist in Coenson’s book. Since its publishing three years ago, “Me and Bobby McGee” has not gone unnoticed. The first-person novel that echoes the stylings of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson and resonates with political and social commentary has won two awards and it being optioned for a movie. Portland director Erich Demerath is set to begin filming in 2013. Some of the film will be shot on location in New Orleans and Las Vegas. This month you can meet the eccentric
and now local Coenson at Jacobsen’s Books & More from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday June 23. It’s part of the local author events held at Jacobsen’s every Saturday during the Hillsboro Farmer’s Market. Spoiler alert: Part of the absurdity of the tale in “Me and Bobby McGee” comes from one of the major conflicts in the novel. Cypher loses a gambling bet and his debtors give him two choices: complete a job no questions asked or die. Cypher chooses the job. Unbeknownst to him, he becomes embroiled in a smuggling ring with human cargo, specifically white babies who will be secretly sold into slavery in Mexico. The idea for the white baby slave trade actually started as a joke. It was Coenson’s cheeky way of dodging that ever obligatory question, “What do you do?” Instead of admitting that he was in sales and hated his job, he would reply something to the like, “I smuggle white babies into Mexico and sell them into slavery.” As shocking as that statement should be, Coenson was often amazed by the apathetic responses he would get. Most people seemed hardly to react at all. For “Me and Bobby McGee”, Coenson wrote some passages of the book while he was in college. The rest he wrote several years later while in Southern California on his laptop at coffee shops, in his apartment, at the bar, the beach, and in the bathroom. This book is not intended for kids. Coenson is working on his second novel and lives in Hillsboro with his wife, the one he went to see in Santa Barbara that day. - Cindy Dauer

Outlaw Folk Rock in Forest Grove If you don’t fit in the box, they might call you an outlaw. Most people branded so seem to wear that name badge proudly. People have started to identify the music Robert Richter and Jessica Hitchborn play as outlaw folk rock. It doesn’t really fit neatly into the folk rock box. The musical duo kind of like it that way. Hitchborn, a Forest Grove native who was a two-time winner of the state fiddling competition as a teen, brings to the pair a unique sound with every song. Richter writes folksy ballads and plays slide guitar. The two, who are sometimes accompanied by a third singer, have performed several shows around the Westside and several more are planned for this summer. Catch them at 9 p.m. on June 2 at Ballad Town Billiards in Forest Grove. They are also set to perform at the North Plains Garlic Festival in August. For more information about the band, go to www.sonicbids.com/robertrichter

Toe Tappin’ Trail Band in Hillsboro In the scheme of things, it hasn’t been that long since some of our ancestors traveled the Oregon Trail, but a lot has sure changed since then. Now rubber tires travel four-lane highways instead of wooden wheels in wagon ruts. Fiber optic cables stream email to our living rooms instead of letters arriving by Pony Express. Music has come a long way too with electric guitars and drum machines. While we forge on into the future, one must not forget to look back. The ever-popular musicians known as The Trail Band allow us to do just that. The band originally created to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Oregon Trail has come a long way too. From its origins in 1991, some 11 albums later, the eight original members of the band are still going strong and staying true to the historical music theme with Trail Band Classics. But they’ve also incorporated other genres and original music into their repertoire. This month The Trail Band will play at 7:30 p.m. on June 8 at the Walters Cultural Arts Center. Tickets are $20 for adults in advance. www.trailband.com
Wind Ensemble Performs in Beaverton Photo by Bill Reed
Check out two free concerts by the Beaverton Wind Ensemble this month. The group, which formed in 2010, will play American Music from 1900 to 1925 on Wednesday June 20 and a
tribute to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on Wednesday June 27. Performances start at 7 p.m. at the Beaverton Civic Library Auditorium. Concerts are free.
Amadeus Jones Makes Music in Hillsboro Music always sounds better when the person playing really loves it. When you hear Amadeus Jones - a local band - you feel that itâ€™s authentic. The music comes naturally, it doesnâ€™t feel strained or forced. The four musicians in Amadeus Jones are all passionate about the craft and have unique musical backgrounds. Rick Tinling has studied classical guitar for years. Greg Clemmons learned to play music in the Midwest with his father who was a professional musician. Cam Clitheroe can play the clarinet, oboe, and the flute, and Nancy Hursh was a vocal major in college. The group started playing music together about ten years ago at their local church. Together they cover a wide variety of music, from classics to modern, jazz standards to pop songs. Their songbook is a binder full of sheet music. All four members of Amadeus Jones are Hillsboro residents. Three of four either are or were engineers. Hursh teaches piano lessons and is a former elementary teacher. Tinling now teaches math at Lincoln High School. You can hear Amadeus Jones at 8:30 p.m. on June 9 at Primrose and Tumbleweeds in Downtown Hillsboro.

Balloons Take Off at Annual Tigard Festival Story by Devan Bey If you happen to glance upwards around six o'clock on a Friday morning in June, you may witness dozens of rising balloons leaving a glowing imprint upon the morning sky. Some Tigard residents welcome the sight as an initiation to summer and the promise of fun. The 28th Annual Tigard Balloon Festival will delight Westsiders and Oregonians from Friday, June 22nd to Sunday the 24th. In recent years, the festival has seen as many as twenty thousand guests, all eager to witness a colorful array of balloons and participate in dozens of events. These events range from a carnival, a youth soccer tournament, car shows, the night glow of hot air balloons in the sky and live music. Organizers say they are thrilled to offer diverse activities for all age groups and interests, leading many to call the festival Tigard's premiere family event. The festival offers more than joy to the community in which it takes place. Because many aspects

The Weekly Street Festival Returns to Downtown Hillsboro on June 12 Story by Stephanie Haugen When eating regular fries, it is all right to just dip them in ketchup. But when eating frites – fries with an international twist – you might try dipping them in something more exotic like curry ketchup, garlic aioli, honey mustard or smoky chipotle sauce. You can even try them topped with Tillamook cheese curds and smothered in gravy. This year the Sideshow Eatery – serving up gourmet frites and more – will be one of several new exotic food vendors at the Tuesday Marketplace which kicks off the season on June 12 in Downtown Hillsboro and runs through August. Marketplace hours are 5 to 8:30 p.m. Along with the Sideshow Eatery, new to the market this year will be Crepe Canaveral, serving up sweet and savory crepes, and Sweetrock Farm Swiss Bakery, selling specialty bread adapted from traditional artisan recipes. For Jason Myers of the Sideshow Eatery, it’s not all about serving frites from his revamped delivery truck-style food cart. The marketplace newbie will also serve New Orleans-style donuts. The Tuesday Marketplace – entering
its 14th season - has become a Hillsboro tradition and a meeting place for families, friends, adults, and kids alike with a wide variety of activities that appeal to everyone, including three stages with music, craft and art booths, educational and health activities, and a wide selection of traditional and exotic market food. Along with the new food vendors, some favorites will return as well. Decadent Creations will be back again this year and so will the famous Decadent Bar—shortbread covered in coconut, almonds, chocolate chunks, caramel sauce and sea salt. The Westside-based business also specializes in a variety of cookies, bars, scones, breads, quiches and pies. Behind Decadent Creations is owner Mindy Huggins. For Huggins, the market is about getting out and having fun. “It’s a really great way to meet people,” Huggins said. “It’s like a big party.”

To wash down all the exotic foods and goodies, be sure to stop by the marketplace wine and beer garden. Local beer, wine, and cider makers will be on hand each week to talk shop and answer your questions while you taste their creations. Highlights of the market season this year include a children’s parade on July 3, a dog parade on July 17, and sidewalk chalk art on August 7 among other events planned. Lesley Wise, Tuesday Marketplace manager, said the market is not just a great place to get dinner, meet with continued on next page ...

friends, enjoy music and shop, but also a place to support local farmers, artists and business owners, and stay connected with the community. “There are arts and crafts you can’t find anywhere else, and great, unique products you wouldn’t see anywhere but here,” said Wise. One such local artisan is Bob Mills of Bob’s Woodworks. Mills has been coming to the Tuesday Marketplace for the last four years, selling his homemade birdhouses, birdfeeders, planting boxes and wooden animal puzzles. His works often feature funky prints, local college logos and mascots, and random odds and ends. Mills has been woodworking for the last 20 years, but has been focusing on it even more now that he’s retired. He likes the Tuesday Marketplace because “it’s the best run market I’ve been to and always has a lot of people.” The market usually hosts between 7,000 and 9,000 people and around 80 to 100 booths each Tuesday. Be sure to check out this Tuesday summer tradition. Whether you’re coming from far away or just down the street, the market is located a few blocks from the MAX station and one block from a parking garage. Bicycle parking is sponsored by Washington County Bike Transportation Coalition. For more information, visit www.tuesdaymarketplace.org

Steven Douglas admits that the skills he learned in 1980 while patrolling the border between East and West Germany don’t exactly translate to the modern working world. “That job you can’t bring back,” he said. At 21, the Los Angeles-area native had just joined the Army and found himself in hostile territory. In total he served for ten years and for awhile was stationed in Kentucky at Fort Knox. Eventually, after leaving the service and experiencing a few personal misfortunes, Douglas headed to Oregon to live near his sister so he could start again. When he got here, he wasn’t feeling like himself. So Veterans Affairs referred him to the Veterans and Family Center in Beaverton. Douglas said without this shelter, he would probably be living on the street. This month the Veterans and Family Center is having a Classiccar themed fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday June 16 in the Valley Catholic Parking lot. The Cruise In event will benefit the Beaverton Veterans and Family Center, a facility operating on an annual budget of about $800,000. Most of the funding comes from the Salvation Army. Event organizers are hoping to raise another $10,000 to support the expansion of the center’s garden program, family library, and other services. In 2010 the facility served 180 veterans. At the fundraising event, there will be food vendors, classic cars, and Miss Portland announcing winners and selling raffle tickets. For more information, contact (503) 780-4679.
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.
While being caught up in the thrill of making wine or the excitement of sharing our wine in the tasting room, it is very easy to forget our industry is all about the farming. Farming is good; being dependent on Mother Nature, not always so good. Not only are we reliant on weather, but we also have to contend with 4-legged and winged creatures. In 2011, we had the latest harvest in Oregon wine industry history. The last two years, birds have been a severe problem, so what’s in store for 2012? A customer came into the tasting room the other day and asked, “Is this going to be a good year for wine?” Now we know any time is a good time for wine but how do I answer that knowing that wine makers are the only true optimists in this world. We start every year upbeat, get excited at bud break, and positively giddy at verasion. If it’s a hot dry summer, we are so excited that the sugars are going to be high. If it’s a delayed harvest (like 2010-2011), we are touting the benefits of “longer hang times” and balanced acidity. If it’s an early harvest, that’s great because the weather is better to harvest in and the bird damage is lower. Vintage assessment is truly a mysterious art form. My observation is that wine lovers seem to fall into two categories, evens and odds. I’m not referring to their personalities but the vintages they seem to like. I, myself, am an even. I covet the 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 Oregon Pinot noir vintages. Others are a bit odd, they like the 1999, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2009 vintages. Each have their merits and one could make strong arguments in favor or against each vintage. So, is this year going to be a good vintage? Yep! It’s already started, will come to an end sometime between September and December and it’s an even numbered year. My guess is it’s going to be the best year, ever.
