James Means, DMD

A lifelong Oregonian, James is happy to be back in Corvallis. He was born in Salem, but attended college at OSU. After earning his undergraduate degree he attended OHSU in Portland where he met his fiancé, also a dentist. Now, he’s back in Corvallis and looking forward to starting his life as a career dentist, and as a father. Not yet married, he’s thinking three kids is the magic number, but first things first. James is a sporty type and enjoys working out doing P90X, and running when he’s off work, and now that he’s settling into the life of a medical professional, he’s been getting into 8

golf -- par for the course, so to speak. James loves being a dentist, and enjoys helping out students from the Alma Mater, they’ve already hired an OSU dental student to help out at Timberhill. The eventual goal is to take over the practice from Kurt Black. James says he enjoys treating families and is looking forward to watching his young patients grow, and treating the next generations. James enjoys working at Timberhill because he takes pride in dental work done well, “it’s nice to know that we do high quality work, and the standards here are high, we’re Willamette Living Magazine February / March 2018

happy, patients are happy, and it’s nice to be able to have the continuity to follow up, that makes us happy too.” We suspect James is a guy who will do well as a dentist, and as a father. His love of dentistry is obvious, and as far as kids go, when was the last time your dentist dressed up as Thor for a candy buyback? Yep, he did that. James is also looking forward to becoming involved with the Beaver Baseball team in some capacity, and he likes to visit Flat Tail Brewing - for the burgers. Welcome back to Corvallis James!

In The Garden

Berry Good By Brenda Powell My husband Mitch and I fell in love with Tayberries last summer after buying a box at the Corvallis Farmer’s Market. We were in the middle of our first whole 30* and eating a lot of fresh, local berries. I am a huge fan of raspberries. Mitch favors blackberries. The Tayberry, a blackberryraspberry cross, is the perfect marriage of our individual favorites. We enjoy the delicious sweet-tart taste. The berries are loaded with Vitamin C, flavonoids and antioxidants. I find them beautiful with their dark magenta to maroon color and elongated shape. The Tayberry was bred as an improved Loganberry and it has an Oregon connection. The breeder, Derek Jennings, studied berries in Oregon after college. It was here that he learned of the Aurora blackberry. In Scotland, he bred

Aurora blackberry with Raspberry 626/67 (yes, a number) to create the Tayberry in 1969 and named it after the River Tay. It was first introduced to the market in 1979. Ta y b e r r i e s are fragile and must be hand-picked, so you don’t find them in most grocery stores. Now that I’ve spilled the berries about how wonderful they are, they might sell out quickly, so I think I need to plant some. Fortunately, they are available bare root now. Bare root means the plants come without soil. That makes them less expensive, easy to transplant and often more adaptable to their new environment. February is the month to find bare root berries, fruit trees and other fruiting shrubs at your local garden center. Let’s get back to Tayberries. They do best in a sunny location,

with well-drained soil and support for the heavy canes. The support can be wires strung between sturdy posts or a fence or trellis. There are You-Tube video’s showing how to build simple supports. Use an organic, starter fertilizer when planting and follow it up in 4-6 weeks with an organic, all-purpose food. Prune out the canes that produced fruit and leave the new ones to berry next year. Tayberries bear fruit on 2 year-old canes, so I won’t have any berries this year. I’ll have to make it to the farmer’s market early or drive up to Bauman Farms in Gervais. I hear they may have frozen Tayberries for sale now and they’ll have fresh ones in season. Just writing about them makes my mouth water. I can’t wait for summer and the taste of those yummy berries!

From Co-Creator Melissa Hartwig:

Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition, like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies, or chronic pain, that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms are often directly related to the foods you eat—even the “healthy” stuff. So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you? Strip them from your diet completely. Eliminate the most common craving-inducing, blood sugar disrupting, gut-damaging, inflammatory food groups for a full 30 days. Let your body heal and recover from whatever effects those foods may be causing. Push the reset button with your health, habits, and relationship with food, and the downstream physical and psychological effects of the food choices you’ve been making. Learn how the foods you’ve been eating are actually affecting your day-to-day life, long term health, body composition, and feelings around food.

Real Estate Update

Ask Annette

What to Expect When Listing Your Property By Annette Sievert There is a (sorry, closed to the public) Facebook page called “Bad MLS photos”. When I joined it was for entertainment. By now I am regularly outraged. It is unbelievable what you see there. Photos upside down, blurry, dark, untidy, from car, 1 photo only… you name it. Now, this is not about bashing other brokers. This is about giving you an idea of what you should expect and demand when listing your property. Photos are one thing in your marketing that should be uncompromisingly perfect. Of course, the property needs to be tidy, uncluttered and in good shape for photos to be great. But even not so perfect properties can be presented well in good (not deceiving) pictures. Your internet presentation is, next to the lowly but super important yard sign, THE most important way of attracting buyers to your property.

You have a nanosecond to attract them to your property. Why giving that opportunity up by presenting a less than perfect lead picture? That lead picture should initiate curiosity and lead the buyer to click through the rest of your presentation. That presentation should have a logical order (buyers want to see kitchen and living room first, not the broom closet) and give an idea of the layout of the property. Of course a floorplan is a nice add on and houses with multiple levels or unusual layout benefit greatly from a 3D tour. Vacant homes should be staged. A sofa, chair and coffee table in the living room and well placed large artwork on the walls help a buyer understand layout and size while accents and color enhance pictures enormously. Statistics show that staged homes sell faster and for higher prices than empty ones. When buyers are able to sit down in a well-staged living room

and discuss the property, starting to envision themselves in the house, you are one big step further to getting a good offer. This is a great seller’s market. Houses are often selling regardless of their presentation. But that should not be an excuse not to do your utmost best as a broker to present the property as perfectly as possible. And the market will change again one day, it always does. Then it will be even more important to have perfect marketing in place. Does that cost money, effort, preparation and time? Sure! But you as a seller deserve no less. So when you are ready to list, ask for these services. Do not take the “home made” answer. We are pros and that should show. Happy Selling!

On the Money

When Life Events Affect Your Benefits By Sten Carlson

Getting married or divorced, having or adopting a baby and retiring are significant milestones in life. These “qualified life events,” as they are commonly referred to in the insurance industry, may permit you to make adjustments to the benefits you receive through your employer or other provider. If you’ve experienced a life event this year, review your benefits and determine if you need to make new or different elections to ensure the desired coverage for you and your family. Keep the following items in mind as you complete your review: Act promptly. Be aware of deadlines to make your new benefits elections. Generally speaking, providers offer special enrollment for a limited timeframe during which you can update your new status or make changes in your covered dependents. If you miss the window, you may face a waiting period. In some cases, a missed deadline means you’re out of luck until the next open enrollment period or the first of the year, whichever applies to your situation. Change health insurance coverage. Do you have enough insurance? Too much? If you’re newly married,

compare the benefits offered to you and your spouse through your respective employers to see where you can get the most value. A higher deductible plan may make sense if you have two incomes, are both young and healthy and don’t anticipate significant medical expenses. If you add children to your family, you’ll want to make sure they are included in your health insurance as dependents. If you’re retiring before you are eligible for Medicare, evaluate COBRA benefits (continued coverage under your employer’s plan), insurance through a still-employed spouse or your options through the healthcare marketplace. Evaluate life and disability insurance. Marriage, divorce and the addition of children are all reasons to evaluate your life and disability insurance coverage. If your coverage is insufficient, make it a priority to obtain additional insurance. Unfortunately, many policyholders forget to remove a former spouse as a beneficiary to their policies following divorce and remarriage, which can complicate legal matters should your health be unexpectedly jeopardized. When reviewing your coverage, take time to verify that your beneficiary designations are correct.

Adjust your Health Savings Account (HSA) contributions. If you have a health savings account (HSA) and experienced a family event this year, the amount you’re allowed to contribute annually may have changed. If you added to your family through marriage or children, you can set aside more money in a HSA. If you experienced a divorce, you can split savings accumulated in an HSA or assign the benefits to your former spouse as part of a divorce agreement. Check with your healthcare provider to learn how much you can contribute based on your situation. Consider legal and financial advice. Some life events, such as divorce or adoption, may involve benefits decisions that have legal implications. Consider meeting with an attorney to discuss your situation and get advice on next steps. Additionally, these events may trigger numerous changes to your budget, investments or other financial affairs. Think about meeting with a financial advisor who can help you evaluate your benefits within the broader financial picture of your life goals and retirement plans.

Here’s to Your Health

The Joy of Fitness By Kris Denning

We all know the benefits of exercise, and that we need to be doing it regularly for optimal health. Yet reading about those benefits may not be enough to get you off the couch. Many of you likely hate the thought of working out. Why do some people detest exercise, while there are others who can’t seem to get enough? People who enjoy exercise are not equipped with some special gene that gives them fitness desires that you don’t have. They just love what they are doing, and because they love it, they prioritize it. Motivation, time, and energy are some of the biggest factors in determining whether we exercise or not. If we have the motivation to exercise, we will want to make time for it, and the energy will come naturally with the increase in activity. But how does one get the motivation to work out? Sometimes motivation is prompted by a life changing event, such as a

health scare or illness, or a perhaps a break-up or divorce. Events like these can plant the seeds of desire to change the course of your life. It’s fantastic when a positive outcome arises from a negative event. It will help get you on the path to wellness, but to be able to sustain that motivation for life you will likely have to find fitness activities that you enjoy. Find an activity that moves you, in every way. Your chosen exercise should physically challenge you, and provoke a desire for more. Finding enjoyment in your exercise is everything, or you’ll likely taper off or quit all together, once it begins to feel like a chore. This may mean trying several activities or group classes until you find one that suits you. I’ll bet there’s certain class or sport that you’ve thought about trying, or perhaps you tried, but didn’t love it as much as you thought you would. If it’s a class, try again with another teacher. Classes vary

with different teachers and different crowds. Keep trying until you find the one that inspires you. When you find an exercise you like, you won’t be looking at the clock – you will lose yourself in it. The right kind of music, the right crowd or lack of crowd. Meet friends for a yoga or pilates class or for a run, instead of meeting for a drink (or before going out for the drink). Keep trying new forms of movement, new classes, new workouts, different sports, whatever it may be, until you find what sparks your joy. When that happens, you will carve out the time for it, because it feels good and is fun. Your body and mind will start to crave it. This is truly it folks. I know there’s an activity out there for you, perhaps several, that will spark your joy and help you work toward your healthiest self. Just imagine… Loving your workout so much that you actually plan your day around it! Kris Denning teaches yoga and pilates at Timberhill Athletic Club in Corvallis. Contact her at

Men’s Style

A Proper Fit Oscar Hult “Fit is King.” It’s an old saying, but so very true. A well-fitted cheap suit will look better than an ill-fitting suit that cost much more. However, a cheap suit is going to start looking cheap quickly. The fabrics and construction methods used in making a cheap suit (the inner lining and padding) are glued into place and just won’t stand the test of time -- or cleaning. Definitely something to consider when buying a suit. Here is an example: a $200 suit that holds up for 10 wearings works out to be $20 per use. A suit that costs $700 and lasts for 50 wearings costs only $14 per use, and will look much better. The Natty Dresser has suits for purchase ranging in price from $230 to about $700. We also have Made-toMeasure suits that start at $750, and go up from there depending upon your choice of materials. The importance of fit goes well beyond suits. Casual clothing is also going to look better and last longer if it fits well. Last longer? That’s right. Wellfitted clothing will last longer, for a few simple reasons: 1. Clothing that is too large or too small is much more likely to tear along the seams, because it gets pulled in ways that were never intended. 2. Oversized clothing is easier to get snagged on things like door handles, cabinet corners and car doors. Ending up with those annoying and virtually impossible to repair L-shaped tears in the cloth.

3. Clothing that is too long is super annoying and ends up with damage. Pant hems fray and become unsightly, coat and shirt sleeves end up getting drug through your food, or catching on drawer pulls and generally getting in the way. 4. When your clothing fits well you take better care of it. Sloppily fitting clothing just doesn’t seem important, therefore, you don’t worry about changing out of it to do yard work, or painting the kitchen cabinets. Of course even clothing that you intentionally choose to do yard work and home improvement projects in is going to be more comfortable, and safer to work in if it fits well. Baggy ill-fitting clothing is a life and safety hazard around power equipment. Beyond making your clothing last longer - well fitted clothing will also improve how you feel. When you are well dressed you feel more confident and with that comes a better self image. People you come in contact with will pick up on your over all well being and happiness, and will be more likely to treat you better. Whether on the job or out on the town, you will find yourself getting compliments and respect from your co-workers, friends and relations. So, what does it take to make sure your clothing fits well? Start with taking a close friend (or your spouse) shopping with you. Someone who will be honest with you about how the clothing looks.

If you are of average build it should be pretty easy to find things that fit right off the rack. You don’t need to pass over a jacket whose sleeves are a little long, or whose waist is a touch to big. Those things can easily be altered by a competent alterations specialist. However, if you are not an average size, it may be harder for you to find clothing that fits right off the rack. That is where a sales clerk who knows clothing construction and how it should fit can be of great service. Larger gents will probably find that a coat that fits around the waist may be too large in the shoulders and too long in the sleeve. These are fixable, but if you are buying a cheap suit it may not be worth the cost of tailoring. Why? Because it won’t change the fact that it is still a cheap suit and will not hold up to repeated wearing and cleaning. The staff at The Natty Dresser can help you find clothing that fits well and makes you look your best. With an onsite tailor, as well as two seamstresses, we are set up to do alterations and repairs of all kinds; on men’s and women’s clothing purchased at The Natty Dresser or not. Our alteration staff is available Tuesday – Friday from 10am until 6pm. Walk-ins are welcome, but we do ask that you make an appointment for bridal gowns and formalwear. Remember if Fit is King, you too can be treated like royalty. Dress well, Be confident, Find Success! Oscar Hult is a co-owner of The Natty Dresser in Downtown Albany. 541-248-3561 Contact him at

The Bookshelf The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón Worldwide Bestseller • Barry Award for Best First Novel

In 1950’s Barcelona, a widowed bookseller leads his son Daniel to a secret library and invites him to select a book for his 10th birthday. The novel he chooses is so impressive that he resolves to track down its missing author, Julian Carax. In the gas-lit streets and crumbling gothic mansions of a politically troubled Barcelona, Daniel encounters a series of tragic and menacing characters each with a story to tell about Carax. The intrepid Daniel, his aging father, his picaresque co-conspirator, and the object of his crush, might sound like stock characters, but they are artfully imbued with a warmth and humanity that gives this dark mystery a powerful emotional core.

The Faithful Executioner: Life and Death, Honor and Shame in the Turbulent Sixteenth Century by Joel F. Harrington

Frantz Schmidt was a complex man. He spent his life in quest of honor, holding fast to his religious convictions, but earning a living as a career killer. His father was an executioner, and in 1554 that meant he would inherit that profession. Executioners dealt out justice for towns that looked down on them. They were not allowed to hold citizenship, enter churches, or live within the city walls. Frantz kept a journal for 45 years, chronicling the 394 executions he performed and the personal anguish they wrought. With great psychological fortitude, he respected his duty to the violent job he despised. Joel Harrington’s book, The Faithful Executioner: life and death, honor and shame in the turbulent sixteenth century, is a fascinating account of a man trying to reconcile the hopes he had for his life with the dishonorable curse he was born into.

Home & Garden

By Tinsa Schweitzer

How a home renovation can make a happier and healthier YOU Picture this: you’ve made the commitment to reach a goal. You have decided this is the year you will start running or learn to draw or spend more time with your family. You’re so excited to dedicate yourself to the process, but you jump in with no plan. You’re commitment doesn’t work out, and you find yourself frustrated with the overall process. The change you longed for doesn’t happen. What a disappointment! Transformation is a plan that you put in place to reach those goals. It can be easy to overlook your environment, but that’s the starting place to a life change. If a space is stuffy, dowdy, crowded or cluttered it breeds an environment of discouragement. Think about how you feel when you enter your kitchen and it’s a complete

mess or you have to fight with your pan cupboard just to pull one thing out. That phone number to your favorite take out becomes a source of escape. Your goal is derailed before you even had the chance to achieve it, and who can blame you? There’s hope though! Let’s take a look at the obvious: decluttering. This comes up a lot when we are looking at spaces. How can you maximize on space especially if there just isn’t space to be had? Many people turn to organizational methods such as bin pull-outs (hiding that nasty garbage can) and draw pull outs (lay out all those pots and pans for easy access). Building cabinetry with these goals in mind is a great way to bring the clutter down, efficiency up, and encourage you to be in your kitchen cooking healthy meals more often. We love maximizing on those nooks and crannies.

The next piece of the puzzle is how a space makes you feel. If it’s dark and depressing you might find you reflect that feeling. Windows that bring in light naturally release endorphins, which can create a feeling of encouragement to work on that goal. Brightening up the colors whether it’s a countertop or paint color can enhance your mood and create a positive outlook. We really try to consider the goals our clients have when coordinating these elements to enhance their goals. Your goals! So when thinking about your goals this year take into consideration what your environment is doing to encourage or detract from them. What transformations can you make to push you towards the journey you have already decided to take? You can have transformation, and this can be your year!

Fort Bragg Willamette Living Magazine February / March 2018


Hidden away on California’s north coast is the historic town of Fort Bragg. And no, it has nothing to do with the military base in North Carolina. It’s not easy to get to, but once you get there Fort Bragg is a great getaway to relax and recharge your batteries. About a three hour drive from the San Francisco Airport, the little town is remote, but worth the trek. Getting there from the Willamette Valley. You can drive to PDX or Eugene and then fly to Oakland, San Francisco or Santa Rosa --home to the Charles M

Schulz airport, where you’ll be greeted by Charlie Brown and Snoopy (their creator was from Santa Rosa). Once you’re on the ground, you’ll need a car to drive north up through the Vineyards and finally to the Redwoods and out to the coast. So the dilemma is: once you drive to the airport in Oregon, fly down to California, and then drive from the airport in California to Fort Bragg... maybe it’s easier to just drive all the way from the Willamette Valley to Fort Bragg? It definitely costs less, and if you enjoy spotty cell phone service, driving between Grants Pass and Fort Bragg is definitely for you! Photo: The Intersection of Main & Laurel


Whatever you decide, once you get yourself there you’ll love it. Fort Bragg sits near the northern end of the Mendocino coast which starts at the town of Gualala in the south and ends near Legget on the north. Legget is not exactly a town. It’s known as a “census-designated place” -- whatever that is, but it IS home to some of the largest trees on earth. The last town that is actually on the coast as you drive north is Westport, 10 miles north of Fort Bragg, and there’s not a lot going on there. There are some very scenic places to stay in Westport, a great little store, a restaurant or maybe even two, but Fort Bragg is the northernmost city on the Mendocino Coast. Historically, Fort Bragg has always played second fiddle to Mendocino in the battle for tourist dollars. Mendocino has always

been billed as the romantic, artsy town with the rich history of artists, writers, musicians and generally enlightened folk. Fort Bragg has always been a blue-collar town where working people work for a living. There were even standoffs back in the day, in the middle of the highway in Fort Bragg between the “Fort Bragg Loggers” and environmentalists of “Mendo.” The history of Fort Bragg is logging and fishing -- that’s it. If you weren’t somehow involved in one of the two, you weren’t in Fort Bragg. Times have changed though, and now the logging heyday has passed. The Georgia Pacific mill that took up an area right on the water equal in size to the entire town of Fort Bragg closed up shop in the 90’s. That was a huge blow to the town that had been built by and for loggers. Most of the local logging operations sold logs to the mill in the center of town. Now loggers

have to drive far and wide to deliver to mills out of the area. The fishing industry has also seen better days, in the 60’s and 70’s locals made a good living hauling in Salmon, Cod, Crab and Sea Urchin from local waters, and the more adventurous (or crazy) would haul north to Alaska and bring in big money with holds full of Salmon, Halibut, or Crab. Regulations and scarcity have brought the lucrative days of fishing out of Fort Bragg’s “Noyo Harbor” to an end as well. It’s been a rough road for Fort Bragg, and the recession of 2008 didn’t help. Property values plummetted, and a lot of locals had to hang up the trade their families had known since grandparents arrived from Italy, Finland, or Portugal. But, like the resilient people who founded Fort Bragg, you can’t keep that place down. Now, the town has become a legitimate challenger


Photo: The Pudding Creek Trestle Bridge

to Mendocino in vying for tourist dollars. The mill property is still in limbo, given the environmental cleanup that’s still underway, and the fact that the huge swath of land is still owned by GP who has yet to announce any plans. But the city has built a walking path through the property, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more scenic spot anywhere. There has always been great food in Fort Bragg, largely as a result of the aforementioned immigrants. Lodging options range from spectacular homes perched on stunning bluffs offered as rentals on VRBO.com, to the Motel 6 in the middle of town. You can spend a lot, or you can get a great deal at the Motel 6, big rooms, wifi, big TV, classic restaurant adjacent, and a pool and spa, it’s a great base for daily excursions. Recently as low as $260 for four nights on booking.com.

That’s a great deal! Before it was Motel 6, the property was “The Tradewinds.” It’s a classic. There are a ton of places to walk in Fort Bragg, on the ocean side of Hwy 1, try the “Haul Road.” Get there by Pudding Creek beach on the north end of town, just climb up the hill and you can walk out on the recently refurbished trestle bridge, or walk north to Ten-Mile Beach. It’s called the “Haul Road” because logging trucks used to haul logs along the road to the mill in town. At the north end, Ten Mile Beach lives up to its name, it’s really ten miles of beach, and you’ll often find you have it all to yourself. It’s the longest stretch of uninterrupted, remote beach in California. During world war II, Japanese submarine commanders considered coming ashore at Ten Mile, but thought again when they discovered the local residents were more

heavily armed than them. On the East side of Hwy 1, try Jughandle Reserve and it’s “ecological staircase.” You can find the entrance to the trail just south of town. On the trail that leads up into the woods, you’ll see trees ranging from old growth Redwood to the famed “Pygmy Forest” of Fort Bragg -- trees that are hundreds of years old, yet stand only five or six feet tall as a result of poor, sandy soil. It’s an interesting hike, and there are great picnic spots. For details and directions, check fortbragg.com. If you want to take a great sandwich for a picnic, visit Cyrano’s on Laurel St. in the middle of town, or B&C Market on Oak St. Hint: at Cyrano’s: the “Mendo Melt” at B&C: the Tri-Tip with Horseradish Jack -- you can thank us later!

If you’re more of a shopper than a hiker, just start on Main St. between Redwood and Laurel and walk all the way around the block. There are great stores, some new, and some old favorites. If you want to grab a sit-down lunch, hop across the street to the Fort Bragg Depot and you’ll find the Laurel Deli, a favorite of Locals since way back when it was actually on Laurel St. For a quick picker-upper, try the Mendocino Cookie Company in the Company Store Building. The big building

on the corner of Main and Redwood actually used to be the Company Store for the Union Lumber Company way back when -- check out the Madrone flooring -- you’re not going to find that at Home Depot. The Mendocino Cookie company actually started in Mendocino across from the firehouse and is another favorite of the locals -- and has been for years, and years. Ask for a dozen cookies to take home, and good luck getting them all the way home.

For a real taste of Fort Bragg’s heyday, drop into the “Old Milano” -- it’s a watering hole that has been in Fort Bragg for years and has seen some wild nights... and days. It’s at 300 East Oak St.

For Dinner, eat what the locals eat, nothing fancy schmancy, try Jenny’s Giant Burger on Main St. at the north end of town, Lee’s Chinese on Redwood, or the best pizza on the west coast at Bernillo’s, also on Redwood.


Red • Itchy • Eyes Cheryl Lohman

You do your best to eat healthy, exercise and use products that are good for you. But you still have itchy red eyes and it’s not from seasonal allergies. Perhaps you have a mild allergy or sensitivity to the eye makeup you are wearing. You can search the world over for something you are not sensitive to…however this may end up costing a lot of money until the right product is found, if there is one. Perhaps your current makeup needs to be replaced. Bacteria can grow quickly in the products. If you’ve been using your product for over 6 months, it’s time to buy replacements. Ophthalmology professionals recommend that you avoid products with fragrance, rosin, nickel and lanolin. Look for hypoallergenic products. The way you use your eye makeup can also affect your eyes. You should always use clean cosmetics and never share it with friends. When applying eyeliner, keep it away from the lash line. Never use saliva to wet an eye pencil as it can spread bacteria to your eye. Never sleep with makeup on and clean your eyes thoroughly without rubbing or scrubbing. You could also stop wearing makeup altogether. However, I don’t mean you’ll need to give up looking great. Permanent Makeup is a great solution for people with seasonal allergies, allergies or sensitivities to makeup or conditions where makeup actually damages the eye. The pigments are sterilized and have been used for decades with out reactions. 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. Now you can put an end to those red itchy eyes and save time too. 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.

MILLETTO

Loving Yourself Starts With Letting Go Everyone wants to be loved. Even those whose very actions seem to be the entire opposite of love may well be crying out for just that… to feel loved.

We all have triggers in our life that can serve to remind us of our fears and failures. These emotional triggers are the most powerful forces inside us. We can choose to stuff everything back inside and not deal with the emotions that surface from past challenges. Or, we can choose to deal with the knots in our stomachs that keep us awake at night. Whatever we do, we can’t keep the circle going. It will only surface again and again and again. I kept my circle going for years. Some will medicate themselves to numb the feelings. My medication was a mixture of work and food. There was too much pain from the past, and I

was not ready to deal with the circle of challenges and the subsequent work I knew would be involved in knowing and being forced to make decisions. Sometimes, holding on for a short while can aid us in becoming stronger and making better decisions in the future; but, when we’re unable to learn, or refuse to learn, or when we have learned and still hold on, we become stuck. When I think about all the struggles I went through in life, most of it came from my negative beliefs. When I got stuck; it wasn’t because someone else was holding me back. The truth was I couldn’t move forward until I got out of my way.

Let Go Almost everything comes full circle. Get bored with your past; it’s over. Forgive yourself for what you think you did or didn’t do, and focus on what you will do starting now. The greatest struggle in my life was the struggle to accept, embrace and love myself. I have learned to be my own best friend, because sometimes I fall too easily into the trap of being my own worst enemy. Learning to love myself has been the hardest and most rewarding thing I’ve ever done to myself. When I started to learn to love myself, imperfections included, wonderful things started to happen. I let go. I was no longer stuck. I was happy.

To Your Health

Social connections can affect your health When it comes to treating health concerns like hypertension and high cholesterol, doctors have many effective tools to help patients. But for social issues such as isolation, unhealthy relationships and poverty – factors that can impact a person’s health – there isn’t an easy cure. Studies of how social ties affect our health have already linked social isolation to poorer health outcomes. Now researchers are looking at how social relationships may help to reduce stress and heart-related risks. As research continues, some studies have associated strong social connections with living longer. It’s important to note that having relationships isn’t what affects health outcomes. For example, the health benefits associated with being married only hold true if the relationship is positive. Being in an unhealthy or unhappy relationship can create stress and contribute to health problems. A study by Michigan State University found the association with marriage 36

quality and heart health seems to increase with age. Older couples ages 57 to 85, in good marriages had a reduced risk of developing cardiovascular disease, while people in bad marriages had an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, especially women.

Cardiac rehabilitation provides motivation and support during recovery. People learn healthy habits and how to reduce their risk of future problems. One of the benefits patients of cardiac rehabilitation express is the support and friendship they find with others.

There may not be a prescription to resolve isolation and other social factors that can affect a person’s health. But there are different ways of coping with stress, health experts agree.

When faced with a serious illness or life-changing health event, many people turn to family and friends for support and comfort. But the stress of coping with a diagnosis can make people feel isolated.

“There is no avoiding stress in life,” said Thomas Marker, MD, of Samaritan Cardiology. “There are adaptive and maladaptive responses to stress.”

Support groups are another social resource in addition to medical care. The Hearts of Samaritan Support Group offers a place for people to discuss their heart issues and meet others who have similar conditions. The support group brings people together who have a common health concern, so they can share their experiences and learn from each other. Participants often find it helpful just to talk to others.

Dr. Marker has practiced cardiology for more than 30 years in the community. He encourages his patients to exercise, and as head of Cardiac Rehabilitation at Samaritan, Dr. Marker helped create a program that offers people recovering from a heart attack or other heart problems a safe and structured place to exercise, as well as address social needs.

SEAFOOD Thinking about a quick getaway? The Tillamook Coast is a great option, and it’s only a couple of hours from anywhere in the valley. The secluded coastline is a wonderful retreat from everyday life. You can wander vast expanses of pristine beach and enjoy the crashing winter surf, you can cruise in and out on the coast roads that all seem to lead to some great, scenic spot, or you can take refuge in one of the many fantastic eateries or coffee shops. To sweeten the deal, during the winter season, lodging can be found on the coast at incredibly low rates; particularly

during mid-week. Check out booking.com and search for “Tillamook.” You’ll like what you find. Of course, one of the big reasons to visit the coast is the fresh seafood, and there are some fantastic options. Great seafood is not really easy to find in the valley, but on the Tillamook Coast, it’s everywhere. And of course, fish just seems better when you can see, hear, and smell the ocean. Here are a few standouts...

Try the Netarts Bay Oyster Stew - sure to satisfy the seafood lovers. And for you landlubbers, they also offer Painted Hills Beef burgers. And for the kids... grilled cheese of course!

How about Clam Chowder, ya like chowder? The best chowder on earth comes from this guy. This is Adam Brecht. With his parents Harold & Cindy, they run this little place in Rockaway Beach. Funky, small, but with outdoor picnic tables and the best, freshest seafood you’re going to find anywhere. And check out the hot sauce selection! 42

5150 Hayes Oyster Dr. Bay City 503-377.2323 Find ‘em on Facebook The Fish Peddler is so close to the ocean, it’s partially IN the ocean. At the end of a pier, it’s part shipping dock for fresh oysters to the valley and beyond, to the likes of Winco, Costo and more, part fresh seafood shop, and part restaurant. There are big, plate glass windows in the dining area through which you can watch the workers shuck, and pack oysters to be shipped out. Lunch and a show!

Pacific Restaurant Nelia Seratista & Philip Biermann, owners of the Pacific Restaurant in downtown Tillamook have got it going on! Veteran restrateurs, Philip and Nelia are building one of the best looking restaurants in Tillamook, or anywhere for that matter. Both formerly of Portland’s Heathman, they know their stuff. Nelia grew up in Hawaii, and that’s apparent in the look and feel of the restaurant, fresh orchids greet you at the door, and there’s a hint of Hawaii in many of their menu items. Philip is from Idaho, and with a tongue-in-cheek, he assures us the potatoes are also world class. While the dining room is stunning, and the

main restaurant is to die for, they are also working on the other side of the building which will become a sleek, modern bar with the same beautiful, slab redwood countertops and cool vibe as the restaurant. Off-site, they also still operate the Hawaiian food truck that “drove” them to the success they now enjoy in the restaurant. And, as if they needed to expand their repitoire, they also cater and will offer group events in the new bar when it’s open. Hats off to these two, they are doing an unbelieveable job, go take a look!

OK, here’s something that doesnt’ happen ever... you walk into a little cafe on the coast, the owner (Brian Williams) walks in, you think to yourself “looks like a nice guy, maybe retired from something and opened a restaurant as part of a life long dream to do something else, maybe a finance guy, or insurance...” Then, he announces he used to run the Cordon Bleu in Chicago, and his wife Carol is a pastry chef. Just a little life-lesson not to judge people before they make you a fantastic Halibut burger! Lesson learned. Go eat here!
