ADVENTURE & OUTDOOR RECREATION

Welcome to The Lovely Rogue Valley! You’ve Just Entered Kayaking Nirvana! Picture yourself floating…silently, peacefully, beautifully at one with nature. The only sounds that reach you are the songs of the mountain birds, or the migrating geese flying overhead. Picture yourself sitting comfortably in a kayak or a canoe in the middle of just one of the many incredibly serene and panoramic lakes that are nestled all around us in the Cascade Mountains. No city noise to bother you, no cell phones vibrating for your attention, just sweet, peaceful silence. Then picture yourself rhythmically dipping your paddle into the water as you and your craft are smoothly gliding over the mirrorlike surface of the lake as you explore all of the shoreline, seeing pelicans, ducks, geese and other birds nestled together in groups taking in the day just as you are doing. You look up and see hawks, and even eagles soaring above and you know that this is an incredibly rare and precious day. What I am describing is something that my wife and I discovered was freely available pretty much any day we wanted after moving to the Rogue Valley almost 8 years ago. After relocating here from a more desert like location, we found ourselves going on weekend drives in all directions, exploring all of the natural wonders that were 4

within an hour or two drive. Our cameras were always at the ready snapping photos of all the naturally beautiful scenery that surrounded us. One of the most noticeable things that we discovered was that there were so many small mountain lakes nestled in the Cascades and we wondered what it would be like to be able to actually get on the water and explore further away from the roads that had brought us there. And that is just what we did. First, we sought out the advice of one of the local experts, Scott Keith who is one of the owners of the Northwest Outdoor Store. He was very knowledgeable about paddle related sports which includes kayaking, rafting, canoeing and also the newly popular stand up paddle boards. Scott was able to explain to us all the different types of kayaks and how one is good for lakes and another better for rivers. Some you sit within and others, you sit on top. The length of the boat is also an important factor in terms of glide or maneuverability. We asked a lot of questions about our new adventure into kayaking before making our purchase and Scott very patiently answered them all. He invited us to meet both he and his staff at Emigrant Lake where they had kayak demo days, so that we could actually get in the differ-

WelcomePagesUSA | Vol 2 Issue 11 | Rogue Valley, Oregon

ent models and lengths of boats and give them a try. This was very helpful because it quickly became evident which type of kayak suited our needs. This began a period of adventure and exploration that I didn’t even know existed as we were now well equipped to make full use of our days in the surrounding mountains. In this writer’s opinion, there are few better ways to immerse yourself into our natural surroundings than sitting in or on a kayak. We like to pack a nice lunch, a blanket, a camera, binoculars and whatever suits our fancy and then off we go. We have found that it doesn’t really matter which direction we choose to head off into, there is always a great kayaking destination waiting for us. My recommendation is that if you are interested in a low cost excellent form of exercise plus a truly Zen like experience, head over and talk with one of the staff at the Northwest Outdoor Store. Take a look at the great variety of paddle craft that they carry. They have the best selection between Sacramento and Portland and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful to each and every person who enters their store. You’ll be glad that you did! -LMA

AIR CONDITIONING - HEATING -WEATHERIZATION

Save $$$ By Having Your Home Energy Tested! 94 Years of Service! McMurray & Sons has been providing quality materials and workmanship to the housing industry for over 94 years. David W. McMurray carries on the family tradition as President and owner of the corporation. Having grown up in the business, with a father/boss that understood the value of hard work and quality workmanship, the company retains those same values today. Initially focused on residential roofing, McMurray & Sons began installing commercial/industrial roofing in the early 60’s. In 2012, McMurray & Sons, Inc. acquired Gills Indoor Air Quality and once again expanded their services. Today, in addition to roofing, they also offer insulation, weatherization, heating, ventilation and air conditioning services to the Rogue River Valley. McMurray & Sons offers free home energy evaluations. These evaluations identify: * Increased energy consumption due to air leakage * Moisture/condensation problems * Solutions to uncomfortable drafts caused by cold air leaking in from the outdoors * Contamination of home air quality from indoor air pollution The Blower Door Test This test identifies air leakage in doorways. A “blower door” is fitted into one of your doorways & turned on to negatively pressurize your home. The “blower door” measures the leakage around your doors, windows, vents & air ducts (measured in cubic feet of air leak- age per minute or CFM50). 6

Once the trouble spots are identified, the leaks are repaired, leaving you with a more cost efficient home. Through McMurray’s partnership with Energy Trust of Oregon, they can pro- vide cash incentives that help for the cost of your Blower Door Test.

that can help cover the costs of these services. Sealing ductwork If your ductwork needs sealing, we seal the leaks and conduct a second duct leakage test to determine the reduction. Electric-heated mobile homes: Energy Trust of Oregon will cover the entire cost! Framed homes: Some incentives are available. Air sealing Sealing the shell of your home — walls, doors, ceiling, windows and floors from air leaks is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to increase comfort and energy efficiency. Sealing air leaks reduces drafts, controls moisture, keeps out pollutants and improves overall comfort. Many air leaks and drafts are easy to find because they are easy to feel, like those around doors and windows.

Certified technicians will also conduct a duct leakage test to determine the amount of air leaking from your ductwork. After the duct leakage test Once your home has been tested, it’s time for McMurray & Sons to fix the energy leaks and increase the energy efficiency of your home. They will help identify tax rebates & energy incentives

Insulation Properly insulating your floors, walls and attic keeps you comfortable throughout the year, reduces your heating and cooling costs, reduces outside noise, and saves you energy. Before beginning an insulation project, have McMurray & Sons perform an air leakage test and seal any air leaks in your home to maximize the performance of your insulation.

The Rogue Valley is a wonderful place to live. Sadly enough though, crime runs through every community and you need to be prepared. Every recession since the late 1950s has been associated with an increase in crime, particulary, property crime and robbery. Statistically, there is a strong relationship between crime, falling wages and higher unemployment rates. Now more than ever, it’s time to use your alarm system every time you leave your home or business. If you don’t have an alarm system, now is the time to protect yourself. With the new security technology that is available, it has never been more affordable to protect the ones you care about. Keep in mind, burglars purposely avoid homes which are set up with security systems. Find out how easy it is to protect your home or business by calling SOS Alarm at 541-773-3900.


ALTERNATIVE PAIN RELIEF

Drug Free Relief Addressing The Causes of Chronic Pain For more than 30 years, Dennis Specht, LMT of A Balanced Body has experienced world-wide acceptance and effectiveness in providing therapeutic massage. This experience underscores his goal to use massage as a restorative and healing resource for his patients. In each session, Dennis brings his attention to and understanding of detail. He works cooperatively with the client to customize therapy to facilitate maximum progress in healing and relaxation. Dennis is committed to continual professional development and keeps current of trends in massage therapy through extensive reading, on-going training and research, plus networking with colleagues to expand professional resources and knowledge. Of special note, Dennis has trained with John Barnes, PT, the innovator of “Myofacial Release” the ground breaking technique which releases muscle restrictions. Massage on normal tissue is a pleasant, even a luxurious sensation. Areas of injury or chronic pain can be noticeably decreased and soothed in the first few minutes of massage. Using therapeutic techniques which minimize discomfort, I will work with your guidance to address the causes of pain and dysfunction. Massage is known to have numerous therapeutic effects: - Reduces stress and normalizes your blood pressure - Increases the circulation in the body and boosts your immunity - Facilitates removal of toxins stored in muscle and tissue by gently stimulating the Lymphatic System

- Restores range of motion and relieves aches and pains - Relaxes muscles and joints and improves posture Myofascial Release Fascia is a fibrous sheath just under your skin which surrounds and supports all of the body’s structures and organs. Due to daily events or trauma, fascia often becomes restricted or inflamed which results in tension and pain. Estimates indicate that more than 90% of therapeutic massage clients have myofascial adhesions or restrictions. Gentle pressure and

movement of the fascia releases the restrictions thereby decreasing your tension and pain and improving posture. As we age, many people consider the pains and aches they have from day to day just something they will have to live with. This does not have to be the case. Therapeutic massage can relieve many of your troubling symptoms by addressing the real problems. You will gain new energy and flexibility with treatments that are gentle and relaxing.

BLINDS & WINDOW TREATMENTS

Draperies ‘N’ Things - Hunter Douglas Gallery As you walk though the doors at Draperies and Things you immediately enter a professionally decorated showroom. To be more precise, what you are experiencing is a Hunter Douglas Gallery, just one of six showrooms located in Oregon. The selection of window coverings, styles and colors can be overwhelming to many of us, at least until you talk with owners, Craig & Merry Reeves. Established in 1981, Draperies and Things is a full service Hunter Douglas Design and Service Center. The choice to partner with Hunter Douglas was an easy one for Craig and Merry. Not only is Hunter Douglas the oldest manufacture of window coverings (founded in 1919, Window Coverings since 1947), they also have a selection and a limited lifetime warranty which can not be matched. They even have a program called the “Right Choice Promise”. This is where you have 21 days to experience their products in your home or business, and, if for any reason you are unhappy, they will replace them and start over! For those of us who are not sure what will look best, free design consulting is available to all their customers. You will not feel pressured or uncomfortable working with Craig and Merry. “We work on our clients time frame,” says Craig. “We come to their home or office, consider what they want to ac-

complish, find out what their likes and dislikes are when it comes to design. We then make recommendations and give them plenty of time to consider which way to go. As an authorized Hunter Douglas Gallery, Craig and Merry can repair any damaged Hunter Douglas blinds

or other name brands regardless of how old they are or where they were originally purchased. They also provide maintenance for your blinds which can include removal, cleaning, adjusting and reinstallation. Blinds and window coverings play many important roles in a living or office setting. First, they can provide beauty, continuity and style. Secondly, but just as important, is the control of the environment and how it interacts with the outside weather. Almost 50% of a home’s energy is lost through its

14 WelcomePagesUSA | Vol 2 Issue 11 | Rogue Valley, Oregon

windows. Hunter Douglas’ innovative, energy-efficient window covering products can significantly reduce this energy loss, save on heating and cooling costs and contribute to protecting the environment. And when it comes to privacy, you choose from styles which can completely block out light to other styles which can diminish harmful sun rays while still being able to see through them. On the safety side of things, do you still have smaller children in your home or do they visit? With Hunter Douglas, you don’t need to worry. From cordless manual and motorized operating systems, retractable lift cords, cord tensioners and wand controls, they offer a wide array of innovative lifting system options for enhanced child and pet safety as well as especially easy operation. Craig and Merry Reeves have spent the last 31 years serving Jackson County area residents. Their work can be seen in thousands of homes and offices not just in our immediate area, but throughout the entire Northwest. Before you make up your mind where to purchase your next window coverings, you owe it to yourself to see just what your options are. Draperies and Things offer a full variety of products which can match many different budgets. Draperies N Things is conveniently located right off the I-5 Freeway Exit 24 in Phoenix. Open M-F 10 to 5:30, Sat 10-2. Call 541-535-2790.

We strive to lead the industry in customer service and ultimate satisfaction. We grew up in the Rogue Valley. We are your friends, your neighbors, your customers.

As our business grows, so will our sponsorships of various local organizations such as the Dunn House and Hope House.

Completely Floored opened February of 2007 and took off like its hair was on fire. The first month we exceeded our expected earnings by 40%. The orders were coming in before we were even done remodeling the showroom. Things were looking good. Little did

we know that we had started a business at the beginning of the biggest recession since the Great Depression. The first year went well, all considering. We had our share of struggles but were satisfied with our progress.

The second year brought the sting of our countries economic problems. We made adjustments accordingly and continued to maintain status quo. Two of our partners are masters of the budget so it came to be SOP to require a company Powwow to buy a box of pencils. Sounds ridiculous but it seems to be working.

We stretched our marketing imaginations, flexed our cold call dialing fingers and prepared to attend any event to advertise ourselves that fit into our meager advertising budget. As the daily headlines offered nothing but financial gloom and doom, we were forced to take things a step further by sacrificing a sales person/ owner, Bob Wood, to installations, thereby reducing labor costs. Bob has over 20 years experience installing so it was the logical choice. Even though his body did not appreciate it, it was a very sound business decision and allowed our company to connect with customers on an additional level. Having the owner of the company on his hands and knees in their home seems to please some people. Thankfully, Bob is back in the showroom doing much better now that he is pleasing customers in the upright position. The economy, at least locally, seems to have turned a corner in the right direction. Things are looking up and we are all very satisfied that our hard work, dedication and sacrifice paid off. We know we owe our success to those referral and repeat customers who keep touting our value. We salute you!

Locally owned and operated, La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries opened in September 2007 along I-5 just off the Phoenix exit. After having introduced their franchise to Bend, Oregon, Allen Pfeifer and family decided to bring their brand to the beautiful Rogue Valley. The Pfeifers originally chose the La-Z-Boy line because of this company’s long history and fine tradition of building high quality, long-lasting recliners & furniture.

Born in the USA In 1927, two young cousins from Monroe, Michigan – Edward M. Knabusch and Edwin J. Shoe-

maker – created a wood-slat chair with a reclining back that allowed hardworking families to relax after a long day – and the world’s first recliner was born! The La-Z-Boy recliner was a big hit in Monroe and soon, the nation. Steadily over the last 85 years, La-Z-Boy has expanded beyond recliners and now has comfortable furniture in all shapes and sizes. With factories and employees across the nation and world, this homegrown family business has come a long way from its humble roots in a Michigan cornfield.

In-Home Design Assistance Dream it., Create it, Love it. Free design assistance in your home or in-store. If you ask us, picking out new furniture should be fun. And, when you work with us, it is. We make the process as easy as possible by helping you envision what your furniture and your entire room will look like.

Committed to America! Today, La-Z-Boy is hard at work building an all-American invention right here on American soil. With the headquarters still based in Monroe, Mich., five U.S. manufacturing plants, four distribution centers and nearly 350 furniture galleries, La-Z-Boy and it’s franchise owners employ more than 5,000 people nationwide in the pursuit of comfortable, long lasting furniture. Every day, they proudly produce recliners, sofas, chairs and more by hardworking, dedicated employees. These fine people are driven by the same determination and commitment to quality and comfort that set them on the road to success 85 years ago.

Visit us today to create a single sofa or an entire room. We’ll help you bring it all together. Quickly & easily bring your dream rooms to life in absolutely amazing 3-D visual reality.

The eight perfect Hearts and Arrow shafts: Visible from the diamond’s table are the reflections of the eight pavilion facets and the arrowheads of the bezel facets. The circle of eight hearts seen through the diamond’s pavilion is the reflection of the lower girdle’s facets, while the eight small arrow marks is the reflection of the pavilion’s main facets. As a

result, one can see why all the facets need to be aligned, and even a slight deviation from perfect symmetry will result in a distorted pattern. Hearts and Arrows Cut Proportions are the diamonds, measurements, and dimensions. When a diamond is ideally cut, light rays enter the diamond from all sides, and are bent towards the centre of the stone, reflecting back through the top in a blaze of light. In order to achieve the ideal HFE proportions, the diamond’s measurements need to fall within the range calculated by Tolkowsky, allowing maximum brilliance and no light leakage- like a perfect hall of mirrors. How to See the HFE Diamond: Viewed through the Eroscope included with HFE purchases, one can clearly see the distinctive arrows pattern at home. Each customers should feel confident in the value of an HFE product, which is why we provide the HFE Eroscope for viewing at your leisure.

LIMOUSINE SERVICE & WINERY TOURS

Wine Tasting and Touring in the Rogue Valley Region Is a Great Bunch of Fun and a Delicious Education! Southern Oregon, or more specifically the Rogue Valley and Applegate Valley offer a unique opportunity to taste and experience locally grown grape varietals and blended wines that compete with any other famous winemaking region of the world. This area is unique in that it has the ideal characteristics for growing a large variety of quality grapes within a small region. The Rogue Valley’s American Viticultural Area (AVA) is comprised of three distinct river valleys, each with slightly different grape cultivating characteristics. The warmest and driest of the three valleys in the Rogue region -- Bear Creek Valley runs parallel with the I-5 corridor. Its climate is similar to France’s Bordeaux region and is well suited for growing highly prized grape varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec and Syrah. Not to be outdone, the Applegate Valley, which is south of Grants Pass and east of Bear Creek Valley, beautifully stretches out along the path of the Applegate River, the valley’s more moderate climate is generally drier and warmer than the Illinois Valley to its west, yet not as warm and dry as Bear Creek Valley to the east. Its vineyards are planted

to Bordelaise varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay and Zinfandel. To the west of the Applegate Valley Appellation, and still within the Rogue Valley Appellation, the Illinois Valley is furthest of the three valleys from the primary population areas. High elevation and a marine influence, spilling over the coastal mountains to the west, are major elements of this valley’s distinct terrain. These influences make the Illinois Valley’s microclimate suitable for growing high-quality Burgundian varieties such as Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, early Muscat and Gamay Noir. So whether you are well schooled at wine appreciation or not, planning a few days of wine touring is a “must do” activity now that you are living in this beautifully located region. Of course, we recommend that the best way to take in the various wineries worry-free is to plan to pack a nice picnic, invite some new friends or visiting family, and schedule one of our limousines so that you can take in the beautiful landscapes from the comfort of a luxuriously appointed vehicle with your own personal chauffeur to guide you in your quest. With all of the wineries to choose

32 WelcomePagesUSA | Vol 2 Issue 11 | Rogue Valley, Oregon

from, and more tasting rooms opening every year, it is simply impossible to take them all in during a single day. Wine making is an art as well as a skill, so be patient with yourself and allow the time to savor the uniquely wonderful characteristics of each winery and their signature offerings. The summer and autumn seasons are just perfect for enjoying the scenery but most wineries stay open year round just in case you miss a few. At Taste of Honey Limousine, we pay attention to the little details that will make your winery tour a day without hassle or worry. We always have your personal experience in mind and we feel that the best way to maximize your enjoyment of the day or of that special evening is to have your very own chauffeur at the wheel. We specialize in winery tours, weddings, anniversaries, quinceaneras and all other special events that make up the milestones of one’s lifetime. We also provide elegant transportation for business and corporate events as well as airport service day or night. Give us a call at 541-779-5123 to find out how affordable it is to schedule a limousine. We help guide you so that your day is one filled with fun and priceless memories.
