In The Garden

Autumn Magic By Brenda Powell

Autumn is upon us, spreading magic through changing leaves, amber light, and crisp air. The October Glory maples glow red. The ornamental grass seed heads rustle in the wind. Birds dine on the Cotoneaster berries. Does this sound like your landscape or could you use a little more fall interest? So often we plant the glorious flowers of the spring and summer plus plain evergreens, forgetting about plants will beautiful fall foliage, late flowers, or berries. Now is a perfect time to select and plant these fall beauties, while temperatures are cooler and the winter rains are about to begin. They’ll get more established before next summer’s dry heat. Plus, you can see what the plant looks like in its autumn attire. Here’s my list of favorite fall interest plants. An added bonus-some even have pretty spring flowers. Crape Myrtle: From the short (4’) Dazzle series to the tall Arapaho (20’ plus), these shrubs/trees have it all. Late summer into fall blooms, red-orange fall foliage, and interesting bark are their attributes. They love the hot sun and are drought tolerant once established. Enkianthus: This underused plant has an upright growth habit, dainty bell-shaped flowers, and brilliant red, orange, and yellow fall foliage. This one takes full sun to part shade and grows 6-12’ tall. Witch Hazel (Hamamelis): A divine shrub with fragrant, unique, late winter flowers and red to orange fall leaf color. It is a large shrub to small tree, growing 8-10’

tall. Best in full sun with well-drained but moist soil. Doublefile Viburnum: There are many varieties with flat, lacy flowers. The foliage turns red to burgundy in the fall. They make a lovely large shrub to small tree with horizontal branches. Full sun to part shade. They grow 5-10’ tall and wide. Try the new variety, ‘Opening Day’, which has baseball-sized snowball-like flowers and turns a beautiful cabernet in the fall. Oakleaf Hydrangea: Okay, I love hydrangeas but I’m especially partial to this one. It has peeling bark, cream-colored shooting flower clusters, and dramatic foliage that turns red in the fall. Height to 4-8’. It will take full sun but light shade might be better. Heather (Calluna cultivars): There are several varieties (Firefly, Multicolor and Wickwar Flame are 3) that have chartreuse to golden foliage that turns a gaudy redorange in the winter. With pale lavender flowers in the spring, this is a fine, low (1-2’) plant for masses and borders. It is considered somewhat drought tolerant when established. Added bonus-the bees love it. Persian Parrotia: A tree growing 20-35’ tall and wide, it has fall leaves in multiple colors (red, orange, yellow and wine). The bark has tan patches that provide winter interest. Sourgum aka Black Tupelo and Black Gum (Nyssa sylvatica): This 30-50’ tall tree tolerates clay, acidic and wet soils,

making it a good bet for the Willamette Valley. It turns a spectacular red in the fall. Its name is from one of the water nymphs. How cool is that? Ornamental grasses: You really can’t go wrong with any of them, but I’m a fan of maiden grass (Miscanthus sp) and feather reed grass (Calamagrostis sp). Cotoneaster lacteus: It’s a big shrub (10’ tall) but if you have the room, it is worth it. It is evergreen, drought tolerant once established, and it attracts birds, bees, and butterflies. The clusters of white, spring flowers are followed by red berries. They are great in holiday wreaths and arrangements. American Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens): This is a great addition to planters. The red berries are relatively large on this low-growing ground cover.. It likes well-drained, moist soil and part shade. Beautyberry (Callicarpa): Bright purple berries! That ought to be enough to sell it. Let’s be honest, it’s rather nondescript the rest of the year and the fruit doesn’t even last all winter. Although there is an American native species, the best variety is Profusion, which grows 4-6’ tall. Plumbago (Ceratostigma plumbaginoides): I couldn’t help but sneak this one in. It has been a favorite groundcover for years. Beautiful blue flowers in late summer-fall and bright red leaves before it drops them all. Place is somewhere that you won’t notice it is late to come back.

Real Estate Update

Buying in the

Flood Plain By Annette Sievert

To make this very clear, I am not an expert in flood insurance. Thus, if you are in a flood plain and need quotes, outlooks, etc., call an insurance agency like Katie Enright’s Farmers Insurance Agency in North Albany. What I would like to talk to you about are general issues and the basics when contemplating buying in a / very close to a flood plain or selling your house located in a flood plain. When you insure your car or your house your premiums are based on a localized risk pool. Homeowners insurance will be higher in a break-in prone neighborhood in a big city than in Corvallis, for instance. Lots of safe drivers will make for areas with lower car insurance than areas with tons of accidents and theft. Flood insurance is not localized, flood insurance is a nationwide risk pool. If somebody next to the Mississippi River builds up his $100,000 house following a flood 20 times over and gets a payout from FEMA each time, your premium is contributing to that payout. Unfortunately, FEMA has not yet gotten to the point

where they tell people to listen to Mother Nature when she is telling them that that spot is not suitable to build, thus giving them money to rebuild once and from then on leaving them on their own. According to the Washington Post, from 1978 to 2004, the NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) took in more money than it paid out, but with disasters like Katrina and Sandy the NFIP is now nearly 25 billion in the red. With Harvey being the latest and Irma being on her way and possibly delivering the next big blow the outlook is bleak. The cost of Harvey is currently estimated to exceed 175 billion dollars. Do you see the writing on the wall? Every time a disaster like this hits, the money must come from somewhere. Whether you believe climate change is manmade or a natural cycle, it is here and I don’t think I venture too far out when I say the probability of more of these disasters is rising. To apply this all to us here in Corvallis and the surrounding towns, make sure that for every house you are interested

in as a buyer, you check the flood maps. Make sure that if you absolutely want to buy in or near a flood plain that you have talked to a knowledgeable local insurance agent and have checked on elevation certificates, base lines, and outlooks. Ask tough questions and know if, when, and how much your premium can potentially rise. This is not just about what you can and want to afford, it is also about the point in time when you might want to sell again. A house with $4000 flood insurance premium per year is not an easy sell. If you want to sell your house in a flood plain, your agent needs to do some leg work and make sure that the true new premium is known, check if your current policy can be taken over, get an elevation certificate and know whether you can apply for a LOMA (letter of map amendment, stating your structure is above the flood plain and does not require insurance). As usual, preparation is everything. Stay dry, Annette

Making the Most of Your Money

Your Siblings, Money & Aging Parents By Sten Carlson

Many adult children are called upon to help their aging parents as life changes set in, yet only 65 percent of siblings report talking about money with one another, according to research by Ameriprise Financial. While only 15 percent of siblings have conflicts over money, when siblings do spar over finances, it’s usually about their parents’ situation. Financial conversations between siblings become inevitable, as brothers and sisters manage their parents’ money matters, including estate planning, healthcare, retirement income and wills.

In the event that you have shared responsibilities with your siblings down the road, it’s important to make sure your family is on the same page. Here are some tips to help you and your siblings have civil conversations about money-related family matters. Set aside your differences. When your parents need help, don’t waste your time re-hashing old family feuds. Keep yourself in check if you are tempted to fall into old patterns of behavior that may alienate grown-up siblings. You may not be able to control how your siblings behave, but you can control your own actions. Determine key priorities. You’ll accomplish more – and potentially spar less – when everyone is committed to common goals. Assess what financial matters you and your siblings will need to manage together. If your parents’ safety is a primary concern, find agreement about the support and services they need to remain safely in the family home. If it’s time for your parents to move to an assisted living facility, put your energy into seeking a solution.

Schedule time to talk. Schedule regular check-ins with your siblings to discuss pressing topics related to your parents’ care, including how finances are being managed. Frequent conversations can help diminish anxiety and improve collaboration. Ongoing dialogue will help prevent misunderstandings from blowing up into full-fledged battles and help keep your parents’ best interest top-of-mind. Divide and conquer. It’s important to set responsibilities, with the understanding that each sibling may be able to contribute different amounts of time, money and expertise. Be forthright about what you can reasonably handle and open to taking on more tasks if you have the capacity. Keep in mind that responsibilities may shift over time, as circumstances change for you and your siblings. Be open to advice. Bringing outside sources into your inner circle can help provide unbiased guidance as you enter this new phase of life. Your parents’ tax preparer, financial planner and other trusted advisors could provide an important bridge to understanding their current financial situation. Once you’re ready to plan the next steps for your family, consider working with a single financial advisor. This approach allows the advisor to help you create a comprehensive plan that addresses everyone’s needs and concerns. Money conversations can be emotional and hard to initiate, but keep in mind that there are benefits to having open communication. Families who are willing to tackle money-related topics are often more confident about their ability to handle financial challenges and work toward their goals.

Here’s to Your Health

Food Additives By Kris Denning In Europe, you would see the following statement on a package of food that contains artificial dyes, “Consumption of this product may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children.” This warning label came in part, after a 2007 study found a slight increase in hyperactivity among children who consumed a mixture of the dyes and a preservative. This year a senator in California introduced a bill proposing that the same warning labels be placed on similar foods here, since our own United States FDA has yet to make a move on this issue, which has been a topic of concern since the 1970s. When my oldest child was in preschool she had a sudden bout of anxiety, rage, and obsessive behaviors that sent her and our entire family into a tailspin. It got so bad that in a two-week span she’d seen her doctor, an immediate care doctor, and had multiple lab tests done to rule out viruses and infections. They all found

& Ki ds

nothing. Desperate to help my child, I did some research of my own. I analyzed the ingredient labels of foods she had been exposed to and came across a preservative called TBHQ. Until this point, she’d always had a very natural diet, but after trying this certain brand of crackers at school and loving them, I had decided to buy some for her to eat at home. She’d been eating them daily. My research found that although the FDA had set safety limits for TBHQ as an additive (preservative), there was evidence that it could cause ADHD-like symptoms, restlessness, and hyperactivity in some children. And sure enough, after removing the crackers from her diet, all symptoms subsided within 2 days. Over the years I found that her agitative symptoms crept in after eating or drinking artificial dyes as well, and that the build-up of those additives, from consuming several days in a row, seemed to be most detrimental. I had to wonder, if her behavior was so altered on the outside, what was happening to her insides?

It concerns me that other kids may be experiencing the same symptoms, and for what? So that we may have the bluest snow cones? Or the reddest nacho chips? American companies export cereal bars, candies, chips, etc., to Europe that are made with natural plant based dyes such as beet root and paprika. For us, the same companies produce the same products using artificial dyes like Red No. 40, Yellow No. 6, and Blue No. 1. Kind of insulting, isn’t it? Europe has now banned many of those additives altogether, and hopefully someday, America will too. Until then, we must take matters into our own hands and decide what is safe for consumption, and what is not, for our own families. Even if just a few sensitive kids are affected, on some level, whether directly or indirectly, this is likely to affect us all.

Art Afield

Local Artist Studios Open Tour backstage, meet artists, ask questions, and see the creation process. The 15th Annual Philomath Open Studios Tour (POST) allows interested guests to view and buy art at its source. Local artists open their studios for self-guided, free tours during the last two weekends in October. Wander through and find your favorite artwork for your home on October 21, 22 and 28, 29, noon to 5pm. Local wine tasting rooms, Spindrift Cellars and Philomath Wine Vault, are also hosting artists. This year’s tour features 15 sites with 32 artists including: Dale Donovan (Clay), Marianne Post (Pastel), Mike Bergen (Oil), Susan Johnson (Oil & Drawing), Aaron Reizes (Wood-Fired Ceramics), Merrill Sommers (Metal Work), Rinee Meritt (Kilnformed Glass & Mixed Media), Babette Grunwald (Encaustic & Textiles), Kate McGee (Pastel), Rhoda Fleischman (Ceramics), Debby Sundbaum-Sommers (Printmaking & Watercolor), Kris Mitchell (Mixed Media), Nena Bement (Glass and Fiber), Sara Morrissey (Kilnformed Glass), Jeff Gunn (Ceramics), Faye Cummins (Acrylic/Mixed Media), Jerri

Bartholemeew (Glass), Kat Sloma (Digital Art), Lyn Radosevich (Mosaic Glass), and Debi Friedlander (Mixed Media & Colored Pencil)—to name a few. Printmaker and watercolor artist, Debby Sundbaum-Sommers, along with metal artist, Merrill Sommers (above) are two of the many artists opening their studios to the public. An OSU printmaking 1975 graduate, Debby continues mastering her art techniques through exploring various artistic ventures and studying alongside other artists: John Rock, Nelson Sandgren, Berk Chappell, Gordon Gilkey, Mark Clarke and Frank Janzen. Using the monotype printmaking process, she produces rich and intensely colored prints by applying color on plexiglass plates, drawing into the color with all sorts of tools, and then running the colored plate and paper through an etching press. She repeats this process with each additional color. It can take three or more passes through the press to complete one print. Debby states, “With each image, I try to go beyond the initial inspiration and invest

the final piece with something a little different, either emotionally, technically or, hopefully, both.” Debby has exhibited in numerous juried and invitational shows in Oregon and Washington. Also in Philomath, at the same location Merrill Sommers will have his studio open. Merrill, a metal artist, welds whimsical sculptures that convey movement and joy with a touch of humor. Every day collected objects are reinterpret and used in each original metal creation. Merrill’s fun pieces will liven up any garden or coffee table. Don’t miss this local, October event. Visit one studio or all 15! Tour guide maps and artist information are online at www. philomathopenstudios.com. Brochures with maps are available at the Benton County Museum, the Arts Center in Corvallis, and local galleries. Distinctive yellow signs keep visitors on track.

Stressed At Work? Tips To


Stress might feel like a normal and acceptable byproduct of today’s world, but it can take its toll on your body. When the acute response to a stressful moment has passed — the heart pounding and shallow breathing that may accompany a close call while driving or bad news from a family member — the body will fall back into a relaxed state. But constant episodes of acute stress or even continual low levels of stress can contribute to chronic stress. According to the American Psychological Association, this can negatively affect nearly every part of your body.

Sheffield reports that physical activity is what seems to reap the biggest benefit. “Setting a regular time for a run or to go to the gym can make the biggest difference if you’re feeling burned out at work or overwhelmed with work demands,” she said.

“In life, people tend to fill up their plate and take on more than they should, but at work it can be even more prevalent” said Patricia Sheffield, a certified wellness coach at Samaritan Health Services. “Stress affects physical and emotional health and makes people less satisfied with their jobs.”

3. Get good quality sleep.

Stress at work can come in the form of disagreements with coworkers or a supervisor, feeling like there isn’t enough time to accomplish what is needed and inappropriate or excessive demands.

Most adults need seven to nine hours of quality sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends turning off or putting away electronic devices (including your cell phone) an hour before you go to bed to help your body calm down for sleep.

Sheffield shares these tips for managing stress at work.

4. Make time for leisure activities or hobbies.

1. Set boundaries between work and home.

Doing things you enjoy can lower stress levels and help you feel better.

“Setting boundaries can be really difficult to do because people feel like they should say yes to everything,” said Sheffield. “But they end up missing out on their home life because they haven’t set up proper boundaries.”

“I’m a big believer in people finding or developing a passion for things they enjoy,” said Sheffield. “If it’s work, that’s fabulous, but if it’s other things then really pursue those passions in your off hours and take time to live the life that you want to live.”

This may include not responding to emails or phone calls after a certain time of day, saying no to projects you don’t have time to complete within regular work hours or taking accrued vacation time.

That doesn’t have to mean hang gliding or mountain climbing. Even simple things like gardening, knitting or hiking with your family are beneficial.

Sheffield encourages people to communicate these boundaries with your supervisor and coworkers so others know what to expect, and to respect others who have set up their own work/ life boundaries.

2. Get some physical activity during the day. Physical activity during the day — even if it’s just a 10-minute 24

walk — is a great way to clear your mind and take a break from your computer or work space. But take it one step farther and incorporate regular cardio workouts into your week to boost your stress reduction.

5. Eat for a healthy life. Eating a balanced diet, staying hydrated and avoiding using substances like alcohol and drugs to deal with stress will help keep your body strong. In the moment you may feel like a takeout pizza, but your body will thank you for a home cooked meal. Ready to reduce stress with exercise?

Permanent Makeup helping Breast Cancer Patients

There are many activities in October promoting Breast Cancer Awareness month. Many people don’t know that Permanent Makeup can help breast cancer patients regain confidence and feel better about themselves at the end of their treatments. Permanent Makeup is also known as micro-pigmentation, cosmetic or paramedical tattoo. This skill is used to recolor the areola and nipple area after breast reconstruction at the end their medical treatments. We attempt to match the color and size of the existing areola if it was a single mastectomy. With a double mastectomy, we can design the areola color and placement to what the patient desires. Scars from the surgery can also be treated using camouflaging techniques. Areola Repigmentation is covered by insurance because it is considered part of the medical treatments. Topical anesthetics are used and patients are very comfortable.

Permanent Makeup Natural looking - time saving - smudge proof EYEBROWS & EYELINER


Referred by Physicians… Loved by Clients…

“I love Cheryl’s work! Very natural looking!” LIP COLOR


Call for FREE consultation: Cheryl Lohman



Now available… Micro-needling to promote natural collagen building

The results are amazing with a 3D look. It looks so realistic you would never know they are a paramedical tattoo. After Areola Repigmentation, many patients share that they feel whole again, feel better about themselves and have more confidence. What a great end to an intense journey! Because it is long lasting and difficult to remove, it is essential to have permanent makeup applied by a highly qualified artist. Many people feel they would benefit from permanent makeup services, however are reluctant to proceed because they don’t know how to select a good artist. Similar to finding a surgeon, this is not a service you want to bargain shop for. You will want to have a consultation to see actual client photos and learn everything you need to make an informed choice. Today, many professional permanent cosmetic specialists are members of the world’s leading, not-for-profit society devoted to this field, the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP). This organization sets standards of practice for its members, which assures the public of the highest levels of professionalism. With that assurance you can look and feel younger all the time. Cheryl Lohman of Image by Design is a Licensed Esthetician and Permanent Makeup Artist and is a Lifetime Member in the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals and Associated Skin Care Professionals.

Rockaway Beach Enjoys a New Wave of Culinary Experiences For generations of families, Rockaway Beach on Oregon’s north coast has been a favorite vacation spot. With seven miles of sandy shore to explore and play on, this iconic beach town hosts highly popular summer events, like the Kite Festival, Pirate Festival and 4th of July fireworks. The compact, walkable downtown offers candy stores, eclectic shops, mini-golf course, family diners, and even a police museum. In the last three years, however, Rockaway Beach has become a destination for another type of traveler: those who enjoy fresh seafood, locally sourced menus, wine tasting, freshly baked pastries, and even “haute dogs.”

Wine tasting and luscious baked treats Small cafes serving freshly baked treats and light meals can be found right downtown. Two new places have quickly earned a great reputation for both wine and baked goods. Renee’s Tasting Room and Cafe is a new addition to downtown Rockaway Beach, and already has a strong following of locals and visitors. Wine tasting is a big draw, but also the baked goods (blueberry cinnamon rolls anyone?) and light meals served for breakfast and lunch. Open 9:00 am - 3:00pm. 127 Miller Ave Beach Bakeshop This gem of a bakery and to-go café quickly became a favorite of locals after opening in 2015. Everything is baked and made fresh daily, including breads, pastries, desserts, soups and sandwiches. They cater, too, so the entire family can enjoy their vacation time. Open 9:00am - 3:00pm, 108 N. Highway 101.

Renee’s Tasting Room offers wine lovers many choices, along with tasty bakery and lunch options. 26

From Offshore Grill, locally caught salmon served with fresh produce from a nearby farm.

Fresh, local seafood With rivers, bays and an ocean at the town’s doorstep, locally caught and harvested seafood is a specialty. Salmon, tuna, rockfish, Dungeness crab, oysters and clams grace the menus of several eateries. Jacob and Michelle Burden, owners and chef of Offshore Grill, bring breakfast, lunch and dinner to locals and visitors alike. In addition to fresh seafood, they also feature grass-fed and locally grown beef, omelet made with local produce and Tillamook Cheese, oysters from Netarts Bay, and desserts to tempt the even the most disciplined eater. The front of the restaurant is a cozy coffee house serving fresh pastries and locally roasted coffee. The restaurant is open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday and is located at 122 N. Highway 101. Sand Dollar Restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean, has a menu to match the view. Owner Emma Poulsen came to Rockaway Beach for a vacation, ended up staying and opening a restaurant. Her menu adds a European flavor to local seafood and beef dishes, and everything is made from scratch, from the fish and meat rubs, to the hamburger buns. A happy hour menu includes delicious fish tacos. Open every day except Tuesday, from 11:30 to 9pm. 210 South 1st Ave, at the beach wayside.

Willamette Living Magazine October / November 2017

D’Viener Vender food truck offers a long list of toppings for your hot dog.

More than hot dogs A visit to the beach isn’t complete without biting into a hot dog. If you can’t build a campfire and have a weenie roast, there are two great options in Rockaway Beach you won’t want to miss.

Fish and meat rubs are created in-house from family recipes at the Sand Dollar Restaurant.

D’Viener Vender food truck at the north end of town has a hot dog for every member of the family. Choose your toppings, from the basics (ketchup and mustard) to the more adventurous (jalapenos, grilled peppers or bacon bits). Ice cream bars make a perfect summer dessert. Open 11:00am - 7:00pm. 610 N. Highway 101

Old Oregon Smokehouse is a tradition in Rockaway Beach, and foodies continue to flock to this laid-back eatery. Named by regional food magazines as among the best seafood spots on the Oregon Coast, it often has people lining up all the way out the door for their amazing fish and chips, oysters, chowder, crab melts, and more. Outdoor seating is dog friendly. 120 N. Highway 101

You can’t miss the Original Pronto Pup. It has a giant hotdog-on-a-stick sitting on its roof, and a one you can ride like a bucking horse at the front door. Dipped in flour batter (corn dogs are dipped in cornmeal), these all-beef dogs are created from the same recipe developed in Rockaway Beach in the 1930s. Open weekends 11:00 am - 4:00pm. 602 N. Highway 101. Plan your trip online at visitrockawaybeach.org

Old Oregon Smokehouse retains its laid-back atmosphere while creating award-winning fish and chips, chowder and more seafood specialties.

Pronto Pup relies on the original 1930s recipe using flour batter, not cornmeal.
