SUMMER ADVENTURES - MAKE THE

MOST OF THE SEASON

PROVIDING

SOLAR SERVICES

RESIDENTIAL

COMMERCIAL

IT'S FINALLY HERE! The kids are

finishing up school, the warm weather has

arrived and we are delighted at the arrival of

summer! It goes by quickly, so I encourage

you to take some time, before it is too late,

and plan some summer adventures. Next

winter, as you cozy up by the fire, you can

look back at some wonderful memories

made with family and friends.

We at Coeur d’Alene Living Local want

to help you make the most out of your

summer, so be sure and check out our tips

in this issue on unique places to stay and

things to do in the upcoming months. Also

in this issue, we offer tips for when traveling

with children and planning a vacation on a

budget. Whether you choose to fly off to

somewhere exotic or enjoy a “staycation”

right here in our own community, you will

want to make the most of your summer.

When planning your summer getaways,

make a commitment to “think outside the

box” this summer. Choose a place on the

map that you have never been to and set

out to explore. Whether it is a day trip, a

drive across the mountains or across the

Canadian border, make it something new

and adventurous.

And how about trying a new summer

activity? Water sports are abundant and

there is something for everyone.

Remember, adventure and expensive do

not have to go hand in hand. With options

for hiking, going to the beach, bike trails

and more, there is so much to do and so

many beautiful places right here in our

own backyard to do it!

From all of us at Coeur d’Alene Living

Local, we hope you enjoy whatever summer

adventure you choose to set out to do!

COUNTERTOP OVERVIEW: THE BASICS

BY NIKKI LUTTMANN, SEVEN BEE INTERIORS

FOR SANDPOINT FURNITURE, CARPET ONE AND SELKIRK GLASS AND CABINETS

Let’s talk countertops. One of my favorite upgrades in

any kitchen or bathroom often starts with countertops.

Nowadays there are so many options out there you can

choose almost any look, but all countertop surfaces are

not created the same!

Stone countertops are very popular and often go with the rustic

interiors we favor here in North Idaho. Stone ranges in all kinds

of looks and colors, from super-simple Absolute Black, to classic

Carrara Marble, to swirly-twirly Typhoon Bordeaux. As well, the

surface of stone can be polished, honed or even leathered, creating

options within options, which can be even more daunting when

it comes to the selection process. However, I will say this: Often

when it comes to natural stone, and granite in particular, my

clients experience something akin to love at first sight—they’ll see

a slab and just know that that is the rock they want in their house.

Stone is quarried all over the world, but there are several talented

fabricators and sales centers right here in the surrounding area.

Natural stone is dug out of the quarry, then split into manageable

slabs, then sent to local distributors (ours are mainly in Spokane)

and then purchased by the fabricator, who cuts it to size, adds

details like edging and specific cuts, and then it is installed. It is a

tedious process that is all the more difficult because the fabricators

are working with massive slabs that weigh thousands of pounds

and can break easier than you might think!

Quartz is fabricated roughly the same way as granite, but it is a

man-made substance, not pure stone like granite. It’s called quartz

because the manufacturers take quartz rough material, grind it

down finely, and mix it with binders and pigments to get an end

product. It can look wild with lots of variation, or subtle with little

to no variation, and can go with a variety of interiors. Many people

labor under the misinformation that quartz is more durable than

granite, but often times, that is not the case

as it can be more brittle and heat-sensitive.

Because it is man-made, the material is

only as good as its manufacturing process,

and different manufacturers have different

processes. A good fabricator or sales center

can help you determine the right quartz brand

for you, as they often have their favorites that

they have good working history with.

There is also tried-and-true laminate, which

has come a long way since the glossy blue

marbled look of 1985! The new laminate

materials from Wilsonart and Formica are

gorgeous—some of them look very close to

natural stone, and others looking sleek and

ready for an uber-modern interior. Edging

has also improved. Gone are the days when

wood or laminate tape was the only option

for countertop edging. Integrated Corian

edges look fantastic, and some places can do

seamless rolled edges as well.

In addition, there are new composites

like Dekton, which works for both indoor

and outdoor use and is very dense, and

fun, environmentally friendly options like

compressed paper, which comes in a variety

of colors and looks like stone or even leather.

I’ve done Terrazzo countertops, concrete

countertops and even natural Linoleum

countertops. All of them are different and

all of them have pros and cons. Bearing that

in mind, do some research and then ask

questions of your salesperson! They can be a

wealth of information and can help you find

the right product for your home.

To develop a retirement

income strategy that

works for you, call or

visit today.

If you’re a dad, you may well be pleased

to unwrap some tools as Father’s Day

gifts. Of course, it might be a stereotype

that all men are handy at repairs; women

certainly can be every bit as good when it

comes to building and fixing things. In fact, the

construction process is valuable for anyone to

learn, and the same skills that go into creating

and mending physical objects also can be

applied to financial projects, such as working

toward a comfortable retirement.

Here are a few of those skills:

• Diagnosing the challenge - A good

craftsperson knows that the first step toward

accomplishing any outcome is to assess the

challenge. So, for example, if you want to build

some bookshelves right into the wall, you’ll

need to locate the wall studs, determine if you

have adequate space for the shelving you want

and allow room for future expansion. Similarly,

if you want to retire at a certain age, you need

to consider the key variables: your current and

future income (How much can you count on

from your retirement plans?), where you’ll

live (Will you downsize or relocate? Will you

rent or own a house or condominium?) and

what you’ll do as a retiree (Will you travel

extensively or stick close to home? Will you

do some type of work for pay or pursue your

hobbies and volunteer?).

• Assembling the right tools and materials -

To put together your bookshelf, you will need

the right tools—saw, hammer, drill, sander

and so on—and the right building materials—

plywood, nails, screws, glue, brackets, moldings

and so on. And to work toward a comfortable

retirement, you’ll also need the right tool in the

form of a long-term financial strategy based on

your specific retirement goals, risk tolerance

and time horizon, along with the appropriate

materials—the mix of investments you use

to carry out that strategy. These investments

include those you’ve placed in your IRA,

your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored

retirement plan, and those held outside your

formal retirement accounts. Ideally, you want

a diversified mix of investments capable of

providing growth potential over time within

the context of your individual risk tolerance.

• Review your work - Once you’ve finished

your bookshelf, you occasionally may need

to make some minor adjustments or repairs

in response to slippage, cracks or other issues

that can develop over time. As an investor, you

also may need to tweak your financial strategy

periodically and adjust your investment

mix—not necessarily because something is

broken but to accommodate changes in your

life, such as a new job, new family situation

and new goals. Furthermore, over time, your

risk tolerance may change, and this needs

to be reflected in your array of investments.

Consequently, conducting an annual portfolio

review with your financial professional should

be a priority.

Tools are a big deal on Father’s Day. But the

construction-related tasks they represent,

physically and symbolically, go beyond any one

holiday and can be used by anyone interested

in working toward a solid financial future.

TIPS FOR THE TRAIL

What you should know before beginning your adventure

By Deb Duwe, MA- KPA-CTP

FIREPLACES

FIRE PLACES

HEATING

FIRE PLACES

A FAMILY OWNED BUSINESS

WHERE A HANDSHAKE

Seals the Deal

More pets and their families are

heading to the trails like never

before, especially after the

long North Idaho winter. How

can they help keep the trails enjoyable for

everyone? Here are a few tips:

1. Be Prepared - Things to carry on the trail:

cell phone, “poop” bags, leash and, last but not

least, doggie treats to reward your amazing

pooch for calm manners on the trail!

2. To Leash or Not to Leash - Know your

leash laws, or, if dogs are allowed at all. This

will help eliminate confusion and frustration

when taking your dog out, whether in town,

to city parks or on the trails.

My dogs eagerly check in by my side (on or

off leash) when I reward them with yummy

treats. A 6-foot leash keeps them close when

there's lots of trail traffic. I use a 15-footlong

line when the trail or walkway is not as

crowded.

3. Greeting People and Dogs - How much

socialization and interaction should happen

between dogs, their people, and non-pet

people? That depends on the walker, the

canine personalities involved, and if they

clash. Some examples include happy overexcited

pooch, nervous Nellie, I don't want

to be bothered with you and sometimes Cujo

lookalike. You'll need to determine what type

your pet can mesh with. Early communication

with others on the trail can be super helpful.

Some dogs may be in training and their pet

parents may not want your dog approaching

them.

4. Trail Goals - Make your goals realistic.

As a trainer and owner, my primary purpose

on the trail is to allow exploration of other

environments, exercise and to practice calm

behaviors in various social situations. Trail

walks can also be a perfect time to reinforce

the attention on me and not the other dogs.

I teach a "look" cue—when my canine's eyes

meet mine he is rewarded with a yummy treat.

This can be an excellent distraction while we

calmly walk past another dog. The greatest

skill for your dog during a walk is paying

attention to you with the reward being polite

behavior and a closer relationship.

5. Trail Etiquette:

• Leashed or unleashed, have your dog under

voice control. Teach them sit, stay, down, leave

it, come, off—it could save their lives.

• Yield to other walkers, bikers or families

with children.

• Respect the space of others, be it dogs or

people. Ask for permission if your dog can

greet another dog or person.

• Advocate for your canine. It is appropriate

to politely ask another owner to recall their

dog or place them on a leash as you pass. That

way it becomes a pleasurable experience for all

parties.

Walking the beautiful North Idaho trails is a

pet parent's dream. Canine companions thrive

on daily exercise and fresh air, and every walk

has the potential to strengthen the pet's social

skills and family bonding. Enhance your

training skills and develop reliable, safe trail

behaviors for the thrill of enjoying nature with

your best friend.

PROJECTS that won’t break the bank? You can

create a bright, cheerful home just by changing

the lighting. A well-lit space can make rooms

appear more spacious, as well as brighten the

colors of your new decor or accessories.

These daylighting basics will help you find the

best system for your space.

1. Daylighting systems bring true natural

light into your home

First, let’s talk about what daylighting systems

are, because there are many lighting options

available today that claim to provide natural

daylight. These lightbulbs that are labeled as

“daylight” are designed to mimic natural light

as closely as they can, but these bulbs are not

true sources of natural light.

Solatube Daylighting Systems, on the other

hand, are designed to capture the sun’s perfect

natural brightness and deliver it into indoor

spaces, like traditional skylights. Unlike

traditional skylights, however, daylighting

systems are much more versatile to work in any

room in your home. They are also leak-proof

plus more cost-effective and time-effective

than traditional skylights that are built into the

home’s architecture.

use less energy, daylighting systems also cut

down on utility costs. You’ll save money even

taking installation costs into consideration in

the long run.

3. Daylighting systems are designed to

maintain brightness, even in corners

Traditional skylights can provide natural

lighting, but these structures are limited and

not possible for all rooms in the home. New

daylighting systems can be installed for any

interior. Plus, the Spectralight Infinity Tubing

is designed using the most reflective materials

and in configurations that allow all areas of

the room to be bright, including hard-to-reach

corners.

4. Accessories are available to help your

daylighting system meet your needs exactly

Every interior is different, and that’s why

daylighting systems can be modified with

accessories to fit your needs. Whether you’re

looking for a solar-powered nightlight solution,

a dimmer add-on or a ventilation component

for rooms like the bathroom, there’s an

accessory to help your daylighting system work

for your space.

5. Installing a daylighting system in your

home is easy

Does your landscape

need a makeover, or

pops of color?

2. Natural light reduces energy use

Daylighting systems harness the sun’s light,

which means you’re using less energy to light

up your home. If you’re environmentally

conscious and trying to incorporate more

sustainable living practices into your day-today

routine, adding daylight into your home is

an easy and long-term solution. Because they

WORLD-CLASS VENUE

FOR WORLD-CLASS

ATHLETES

Coeur d’Alene welcomes

Ironman 70.3

By Patty Hutchens

A

half Ironman, the Coeur d’Alene Ironman 70.3 is

scheduled for Sunday, June 30, and promises to be both

a challenge and a thrill for participants, while offering

spectators an opportunity to witness

some of the world’s greatest athletes.

The 70.3 is in reference to the total distance

covered in the event—a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile

bike ride and a 13.1-mile run, each being half the

distance of an Ironman Triathlon.

For participants, the 2019 Ironman 70.3 in Coeur

d’Alene will offer 40 qualifying spots to participate

in the 2019 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in

Nice, France, and it also offers a venue that keeps

participants coming back time and time again.

Some of the feedback includes comments such as these:

“The course and organization was amazing and so enjoyable, the

venue was beautiful and fun, and the town was fantastic. Pretty sure

this is my favorite IRONMAN 70.3 experience of the 11 I’ve done.”

IN COEUR D’ALENE WILL

“There is a lot of heart in Coeur d’Alene, and I’ve seen it grow into

a triathlon community that supports biking and sports as part of

everyday life.”

“With so much experience hosting the

IRONMAN here, it’s clear this town knows what

it’s doing. My wife and I loved the small-town

vibe and chill vacation.”

It takes over 1,500 volunteers to support this event

and help make it a success. If people are interested

in volunteering, they should contact the volunteer

director, Dani Zibell-Wolfe, at cdavolunteers@

ironman.com. There are opportunities for kids

under 18 to volunteer as well including at the run

aid stations, general swim area and bike check-in

and out.

Mark your calendar for June 30 to come on out to support these

Event brings nostalgia to downtown

CAR D’LANE CELEBRATES ITS 29TH YEAR

BY DAN THOMPSON

PHOTOS BY JAMIE SEDLMAYER

“anyone can

enjoy Car

d’Lane, and

that’s what I

love about it.

With the loud

noises and the

fancy paint

jobs, you don’t

have to know

everything

about cars to

enjoy it.”

Like many origin stories, that of Car d’Lane

starts with a small idea.

In 1990, Idaho’s centennial year, a group

from Southern Idaho was coming up as part

of the celebration, touring the state in their classic

cars. Dennis LeKander, a Coeur d’Alene downtown

businessman, got together with a few others and

wondered how they might welcome this contingent.

LeKander owned a classic car business.

“I called as many car people as I could think of and

asked them to bring their cars downtown, and (said)

we’ll park our cars downtown and welcome them to

Coeur d’Alene,” said LeKander.

He asked the touring group to gather on the east end

of Sherman Avenue and to drive in at the same time. It

got a little publicity, he said.

“It turned out to be a neat deal, and from that point on

the Downtown Association decided to do it again the

following year,” LeKander said. “It took off from there.”

Thus was born Car d’Lane, which this year celebrates

its 29th anniversary, with a cruise through Downtown

CDALivingLocal.com

30

Coeur d’Alene from 6 to 9pm on Friday, June 14. The

next day, from 8am to 4pm, owners host the Show

and Shine, where visitors can ask questions about the

vehicles, check out the cars and also get food and drink

from local vendors. Both events are free to attend.

“The car demographic, that is a smaller group of

people we tap into, and those are the people that show

their cars,” said Emily Boyd, event coordinator for the

Downtown Association. “I’m not really a car person,

but anyone can enjoy Car d’Lane, and that’s what I love

about it. With the loud noises and the fancy paint jobs,

you don’t have to know everything about cars to enjoy

it.”

The event has grown to host car owners from across

the country and has become a major event for the

Downtown Association, Boyd said. Some who show

cars do so at a number of events in the region, making

Car d’Lane one of their stops along the way, she said,

and that is to the city’s benefit.

“Just having an event for the community to attend is

a really big deal, but for the restaurants and bars, Car

d’Lane (has) a significant impact,” she said.

This will be the second year the event will go on without the North Idaho

Classics Car Club, which co-sponsored it until a contract dispute ended

the partnership.

Saturday’s festivities also include a Young Builder section into which

builders 25 years old and younger can enter their car or automotiverelated

project.

There are a number of other awards up for grabs, including “Best of ”

awards for each decade. Cars and trucks built as recently as 1980 are

allowed to enter.

Brad Enders at Classic Garage in Coeur d’Alene has been participating in

the event since he was a teenager. Classic Garage, located at 1710 North

Fourth Street, opens up for a garage tour before Friday’s cruise so people

can come see the two dozen or so cars it currently has in the shop.

Enders grew up working on cars because his dad owned a body shop, he

said, and so cars just resonated with him.

“I fell in love with the hobby when I was 14 years old,” Enders said. “My

grandparents gave me a ’62 T-Bird.”

He still has that Ford Thunderbird. When his dad passed away 10 years

ago, he turned his hobby into Classic Garage, which he operates in a

space rented from LeKander. He has gradually expanded it, taking over

other parts of the large building as the work of Classic Garage grew.

Part of the appeal of car shows is those memories, Enders said, and that’s

what makes them more than just a niche event.

“I think it brings back memories. There are collectors who have old cars,

but there’s also a group of people (who are) not interested in owning an

old car, but it brings back memories of their childhood: Their parents

had one or the car that they drove,” Enders said. “They may not have

any interest in owning a ’51 Packard, but when they see it, it brings back

memories of their childhood. So it hits on everybody, not just people that

are interested in cars.”

In order to be considered “classic,” a car needs to be at least 25 years old,

which explains the presence of a ’91 Chevrolet S10 Blazer that is currently

a project at Classic Garage. Some vehicles gain popularity as they age—

sometimes because they are rarer or have a feature that few others do.

Last year’s Car d’Lane added another nostalgic element: the Retro Studio

pin-up contest, which invites women of all ages and sizes to do up their

hair and makeup. It will be back for a second year.

The cruise on Friday will travel through downtown mostly along Sherman

and Lakeside avenues. The show on Saturday will occupy sections of

Front Avenue as well as Sherman—a fitting spot considering the original

event drove cars down that same road.

“It’s not at some fairgrounds. It’s downtown,” LeKander said, “and I think

it’s a good deal for the car people and a good deal for Coeur d’Alene.”

“IT’S AN AMAZING FEELING, BEING ABLE TO WORK WITH PEOPLE

YOU GENUINELY CARE ABOUT, from our patients to our awesome team,”

says Dr. Alexis LaRose.

Owner of Kootenai Family Dental in Coeur d’Alene and servicing North

Idaho communities, Alexis and her team pride themselves as being a fullservice

general practice that specializes in providing a relaxed “patient first”

experience for the entire family. Here, their patients receive more than just the

best care in full-service family and cosmetic dentistry; they will find a caring

and personal staff who genuinely cares about their patients’ well-being and

who are willing to go above and beyond to best educate their patients when it

comes to their oral health.

“Our patient experience is what sets us apart. When you come to our office,

you join our family and are treated like it,” says Alexis. “We have a team of

people who focus all day on listening to your specific and unique needs and

story. Their mission is to exceed your expectations and make you leave with

At Kootenai Family Dental, Alexis is joined by Dr. Marie Smith and Dr.

Kelsi Wheeler, and four exceptional hygienists—a team of like-minded

people who always put the patient first, no matter what.

Services offered include everything from: routine exams and cleanings,

extractions, snoring prevention and emergency dental care, bridges,

fillings, implants, dentures, root canals, veneers, Invisalign® and more.

When it comes to what they find most rewarding about the work they do,

it’s being able to change someone’s life and give them a reason to smile.

“So many people come into our office and they are scared, nervous or

dreading the experience,” says Alexis. “When you’re able to help that

person relax, help them smile for the first time in years, give them a

confidence boost or just simply make them laugh—that’s why we do it.”

Alexis and her husband Nick, who manages the office at Kootenai Family

Dental, moved to Coeur d’Alene in 2012 from Billings, Montana. They

were in search of a practice and found just what they were looking for at

Kootenai Family Dental. They wanted to stay in the Northwest, to be part

of a vibrant community and a place to put down roots and raise a family.

They knew they had found home.

“Not a lot of places offer the quality of life we have here,” says Nick.

“We truly believe we found paradise and are proud to be a part of this

community.”

A big part of Kootenai Family Dental is community service. They are

very active participants with Team Hoyt Coeur d’Alene and Lake City

Academy. “While work and family keep us all busy, we try to always make

time for giving back as often as possible,” says Nick.

With a passion for community service and working with people, the team

at Kootenai Family Dental firmly believes that if they take care of their

patients, everything else will take care of itself. Patients are the priority;

everything else falls into place after that.

Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 7am to 7pm.

Across the country, our nation will

be celebrating its 243rd birthday

come July 4 with parades, barbecues,

remembrance and, of course, lots

of fireworks. It’s a time for the nation to come

together in celebration, putting aside our differing

opinions and beliefs so we can be thankful for

the freedoms we are blessed with because of

the sacrifices of so many. These liberties are the

core of American identity and something that

should be celebrated and cherished. With the

fourth coming on a Thursday, many will take

Harrison

Harrison might be home to only a few hundred

people, but you would never know it after seeing

the town’s annual celebration firsthand. Located

right on the water, Harrison is extremely popular

with boaters who enjoy the very southern end of

Lake Coeur d’Alene. Many dock their boats and

take the short walk uphill into town for food

and drink, while kids can splash in the protected

beach adjacent to the marina. There will be

vendors and food available in the City Park from

2 to 6pm, and Jam Shack will be providing the

a parade beginning at 10am. The route starts

at 15th and Sherman and ends at Government

Way. If you want to participate, registration is

open until June 21. The Chamber is also taking

City Beach. For those who purchased raffle

tickets from one of the Lion’s Club members

in May and June, they can see if they are the

winner of one of the five big prizes, which will

to the festivities, as well as a Street Parade. Donations for the display are

provided by the local community, visitors to the area and local businesses.

This year the celebration will be on July 6. Bayview starts the day with an

old-fashioned “let’s have fun” Street Parade at 11am, featuring Uncle Sam

and his Bucket Brigade. At 9pm an informal Lighted Boat Parade starts

their procession around Scenic Bay with fireworks to follow at 10pm. The

weekend starts with the Chamber’s Red, White and Blue Pancake Breakfast

at the Bayview Community Center at 8am July 4. Bayview Marinas run the

vendor portion of the event, the Street Fair starts on July 5 and runs through

July 7.

Liberty Lake

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs, claim your spot and enjoy a relaxing

afternoon in Pavilion Park before the sky lights up just after dusk. The

Liberty Lake Kiwanis will be serving up snacks and treats all afternoon,

so stop by and enjoy a cold soda and grilled burger or dog. Live music,

courtesy of Friends of Pavilion Park, will begin at 6pm leading up to the big

display. Fireworks are launched from the Diamonds baseball field, so even if

you can’t snag a seat in the park, they are easily viewed throughout the city.

Avista Stadium, Spokane

If you are simply too eager to wait for the 4th of July or just looking for as

many exploding mortars as you can, then get your tickets for the Spokane

Indians on Wednesday, July 3. The Indians take on the Salem-Keizer

Volcanoes with first pitch at 6:30pm. The game-day program will feature

Independence Day themes throughout the game including special-edition

hats fans can bid on. Proceeds from this auction go to the Fairchild Force

Support Squadron. Fans will be treated to a fireworks display immediately

following the game, win or lose!

Riverfront Park, Spokane

Spokane’s iconic park is still undergoing its full facelift, but that won’t be

stopping one of the largest 4th of July gatherings in the area. Much of the

park is now reopened, and if you haven’t had a chance to see it up close,

this is a great time. Live music gets going at noon and continues right up

until it’s time to light up the sky. Group performers will also take the stage.

A central area featuring crafts and food is available all day and local brewer

No-Li will be hosting a beer garden for those 21 and older. The fireworks go

off at 10pm over the Spokane River Gorge, which provides a great backdrop.

SARAH SWIDER

Coeur d’Alene High School

A

senior at Coeur d’Alene High

School, Sarah Swider has

participated in sports for her

entire life. Over the years, some

of the organized sports she has been involved

with include tennis, soccer, ballet, cross

country and track, but it is tennis and soccer

that she has chosen to focus on in her high

school years.

As a testimony to her leadership skills, Sarah

was captain of both the varsity soccer and

tennis teams this past year.

“My club soccer team placed second in

nationals in the summer of 2018,” said Sarah

of one of her athletic achievements. She

also participated in the Junior Olympics for

tennis, winning the gold medal.

But it’s not just in athletics where Sarah finds

success; she has also been on the honor roll

all four years of high school and was a DECA

national qualifier both her junior and senior

years.

With graduation upon her, Sarah shares

that her plans include attending Boise State

University in the fall where she will study

nursing with a goal of becoming a pediatric

nurse practitioner.

While Sarah received several offers to play

soccer at the collegiate level, she is instead

choosing to focus on her academics. “I may

revisit participating in collegiate tennis or

soccer depending on academic demands at

college,” she said.

While Sarah admits it was challenging at

times to continue to excel at a competitive

level when faced with a recurring ankle

injury, it did not stop her from enjoying the

camaraderie and competitiveness that come

with sports. And it is that competition that

also afforded Sarah the opportunity to learn

from her mistakes.

Sarah is also an avid skier and is a fourth-year,

“A lesson I learned is that if you make a

mistake, you don’t dwell on it. You learn from

it, blow it off and move forward,” she said.

CAMERON JOHNSON

Lake City High School

A

senior at Lake City High School,

Cameron Johnson is passionate

about golf, and it’s a passion he

intends to carry on when he

continues his education at the collegiate level.

Cameron has won three tournaments as an

individual this year and has placed second on

one occasion.

“Next year I will be attending Spokane

Community College on a golf scholarship,”

said Cameron of his future plans.

Cameron is also an honor roll student who

has maintained above a 3.5 GPA throughout

high school. His plan is to major in education

and one day teach math.

“I would also like to become a golf coach,” he

adds.

When one shows success as Cameron has,

it does not come without challenges. For

Cameron, that challenge has come in the

form of being able to consistently shoot low

scores—but he believes that is changing.

“It is very hard to shoot low (scores) often,

and I haven’t always done that,” said Cameron.

“My game is now to the point where I feel like

I will shoot low every day.”

Cameron shares that what he enjoys most

about golf is that there is both a team and

individual aspect.

“I think it’s cool that at every tournament I

can go out there and win a tournament and

also have my team win as well,” he said.

Over the years, Cameron said his coach has

taught him a very important lesson he intends

to carry with him throughout life: “I think

the biggest lesson I’ve learned is that even if

you don’t want to do something, sometimes

you have to grow up and do things to better

a situation.”

In his words....

As a child growing up in small-town California, Gary Watson

liked to bury treasure.

The treasures he buried were rocks, ones he painted with

paint from his parents’ auto body shop. But one thing about the paint—

specifically the lid of the paint can—always bothered him: It just never

looked shiny.

“At a very young age I noticed that the silver and gold paint cans had a

shiny top, but the paint that came out didn’t look like that. It’s still like

that today,” Watson said from his home in Spirit Lake, Idaho. “I was

always disappointed with the way my rocks looked compared to the cap.”

Watson went on to work in a couple different body shops, and it wasn’t

until he was 30 years old—25 years after his initial disappointment—that

he finally found what he was looking for: chrome paint.

“I saw a TV car show and they had a little blurb (about the paint),” Watson

said. “They chromed a Nerf football … that’s what I always wanted paint

to look like. I wanted it to look like the cap.”

For the last 14 years, Watson has made chrome painting a career. And for

the last two of those, he has worked out of a workshop in Spirit Lake. He,

Kristin (his wife) and their two sons moved up to Idaho to get away from

the intensity of Los Angeles, a move that Watson said will add a decade

to his life.

He was busy in Los Angeles, most certainly. Watson is one of the best—

perhaps the best—chrome painters in the world. No longer burying

hand-painted rocks in the dirt, Watson now has work displayed on six

different continents in personal or public showrooms, including the

Guggenheim in New York City.

None of the pieces start as his own, which is what might be odd about

the work he does. Artists will send him projects—like the 3-foot-tall

melting blow pop he received from artist Desire Obtain Cherish—for

WATSON IS ONE OF THE BEST—PERHAPS THE

BEST—CHROME PAINTERS IN THE WORLD. NO

DIRT, WATSON NOW HAS WORK DISPLAYED ON SIX

DIFFERENT CONTINENTS IN PERSONAL OR PUBLIC

SHOWROOMS, INCLUDING THE GUGGENHEIM IN

NEW YORK CITY.

him to paint for them. He does so, sends them back, and the artist sells or

displays them, often not crediting him (though D.O.C. does) for the work

he did, which is all part of the deal.

That becomes the trouble, too, with self-promotion, because Watson isn’t

usually allowed to post photos or take credit for the work he does. He

relies on a whisper-quiet word of mouth to find work—or by working

with the same clients time and again.

A painter at heart, Watson has carved out another niche: 3-foot tall

sculptures, painted in chrome, to look like superheroes. He had one in his

workshop that was ready: an Ironman statue, from which he gently eased

off the chest plate and other pieces. This will go to the family collection of

the late Stan Lee, creator of Marvel Comics. This replica will tour various

comic conventions across the world, Watson said.

“I’m a car guy, and about 10 years ago somebody sent me a Silver Surfer

comic statue, and that’s what got the ball rolling with these comic book

statues,” Watson said. “They’re not toys. … These are man-cave pieces.”

Expensive ones, too. Each one is worth thousands of dollars. Watson

estimates he has made thousands of such statues.

The process of chroming a surface is really just painting, but there’s little

room for error if it’s going to look perfect at the end. Watson starts by

applying a white base coat of automotive paint. If he touches it or gets any

specks on it, imperfections can’t be polished out.

They need to dry for 24 hours, and then he adds a water-based chrome

paint—there’s actually no chromium or any other heavy metals in it—and

from there he can add colored paints on top of it, which is how he can get

all the tones in the Ironman statue.

Watson grew up working in a body shop, which meant he did lots of

painting. That became a skill that made him particularly well-suited for

working with chrome. The transition to full-time work went well. Within

six weeks of giving this work his full-time

attention, in 2005, a producer from MTV

called to see if he could paint the car on

“Pimp My Ride.”

Then, a few years later, Watson learned

about a Ford Motor Company project called

the Dollar Car. The concept is that Ford will

sell a car for $1 so long as they can use it

promotionally. In addition to its line of dragracing

cars, Ford also had a program for

custom cars, so Watson put in a proposal for

a Mustang GT. Ford chose it, and his car won

Best in Show for Outstanding Achievement

in Design—out of 4,800 participants—at the

2010 SEMA show in Vegas.

Those two spotlights led to lots more work,

he said, and he’s been busy ever since. But

eventually, he and his family were ready for

a quieter life, so they moved to Idaho.

The rat-race of Los Angeles was killing me,”

Watson said. “I knew cars weren’t going to

follow me, but the comic book statues and

the artwork, nine times out of 10, it shows

up in the mail.”

So far, that plan has worked just fine. Watson

has a skill that very few people have at the

level he has it. He is also looking to create

projects of his own, start to finish, and the

last couple years he has worked on a few

different ideas in the hopes of finding a

niche, art that, when asked about it, he can

answer, “Yes, I made that,” rather than just

“Yes, I painted that.”

“I’m trying to create my own artwork, but

anything you see here is manufactured,” he

said inside his workshop. “My claim to fame

is paint. I’m a painter.”

Right now he has settled on chroming items

from nature. He held up a section of bark,

about a foot square and 2-inches deep, the

bark’s surface painted in chrome.

“The concept is man always trying to

make things perfect and flawless and even

willing to mess with nature, so it’ll be this

combination of something man made with

natural,” Watson said.

He is also enjoying the space he has in Idaho,

a 10-acre plot where he is raising chickens

and experimenting with rock gardens and

other outdoor pursuits, as he continues to

fuel his passion through his painting in the

workshop a few yards away.

“I can’t say how much I love it here,” he said.

“The lifestyle, it’s just incredible.”

A HUB FOR THE COMMUNITY

BY KAYE THORNBRUGH

PHOTO PROVIDED BY NIC

NIC provides a complete indoor and outdoor recreational experience such as climbing wall passes

available for purchase at the Student Wellness and Recreation Center on campus.

From the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene

to the stacks of Molstead Library, North

Idaho College offers a range of resources

for the community.

“Our mission is to get folks into the outdoors

and appreciating what we have here,” said NIC

Outdoor Pursuits Coordinator Jacob Rothrock—

whether those people are NIC students or

members of the community.

NIC provides a complete indoor and outdoor

recreational experience. Community members

can take advantage of boat and paddleboard

rentals at Yap-Keehn-Um Beach, as well as

purchase climbing wall passes at the Student

Wellness and Recreation Center on campus.

Youth camps give kids the opportunity to sample

a range of outdoor activities at an affordable price,

and adults can take advantage of lessons for all

skill levels.

“I love being a resource for people who are trying

to plan their own adventure,” Rothrock said.

North Idaho College also brings in expert

speakers to enrich community events.

“It makes the community stronger,” said Josh

Misner, a communication instructor with NIC

whose writing has been published by Time

Magazine and The Huffington Post. He’s often

asked to speak as an expert on a range of subjects,

from fatherhood to social media.

“We’re providing a service to the community, not

only through educating students but by doing

community outreach,” he said.

Community colleges like NIC occupy a unique

space, Misner said: Rather than focusing solely

on students, they’re able to engage with and offer

resources to a bigger population. Expert speakers

are part of that.

On a personal level, he said it’s a privilege to share

his knowledge and expertise with his students

and with the community at large.

“I’m so glad our community has so many of these

resources,” he said. “We can tap into local experts

who have the answers.”

Accessible to students and community members

alike, the NIC Venture Network is a hub of campus

resources dedicated to helping entrepreneurs at

all stages of their journeys.

“This is a one-stop shop for your business needs,”

said Ryan Arnold, NIC director of Regional

Entrepreneurial Strategy.

Students can earn certificates in entrepreneurship

or associate degrees in business leadership at

NIC. Entrepreneurs can receive free, confidential

coaching, as well as affordable training at the

North Idaho Small Business Development

Center, or unlock their creativity at Gizmo-CDA.

The college library also provides free resources to

help grow a business.

“Our students can leave the classroom and have

connections for how to continue that business

idea,” Arnold said.

Conversations about modern entrepreneurship

often involve software or tech companies, he said,

but physical products are just as important. To

that end, beginning in 2020, the Venture Center

will also include a rapid prototype lab with inhouse

design assistance, fabrication tools and

commercialization assistance.

“In the makerspace, we have hobbyists, but we

also have people who are chasing their business

dreams,” Arnold said. “We see a lot of people

who we wouldn’t normally see on a community

college campus.”

NOT FOR THE FAINT AT HEART

Things to know to avoid running injuries

By Ryan Egan, Licensed Joint and Movement Specialist

As we approach summer, trail-running and road-running shoes

are swapped for mud boots. As trails dry out from mud season,

summer mountain exploration begins!

Unfortunately, most runners are severely under equipped for

the miles they seek, leading to an onslaught of running injuries and overuse

issues. Everything from plantar fasciitis and IT band syndrome to knee pain

and low back issues, running is not for the faint at heart!

My mentor, who trains the world’s elite soccer clubs, says, “You don’t run to

get in shape, you have to be in shape to run.” Albeit a bit cheeky but very true,

since nearly 80 percent of people getting their miles in this spring will sustain

some sort of injury.

There are, however, some simple, easy changes to employ if you want

to upgrade your running performance and decrease the likelihood of

unnecessary and very common injuries.

First thing is to ditch the heel strike and begin landing on the mid foot with a

slightly positive shin angle. Heel striking dramatically increases forces when

landing and essentially acts upon the body like a brake. Heel striking also

limits the loading potential of the powerful lower leg. Landing on the heel is

also a huge contributor to shin splints as the toes “slap” down when fatigue

sets in.

Second, ditch the fancy footwear. Your shoes are not the issue, your foot and

ankle are. Finding a slightly more low-profile shoe can give you better feel,

HEALTHY TIP

THE CALL OF THE OUTDOORS

Summer is here, so it’s a great time to get out and walk! According

to a study at the Virginia Institute for Psychiatric and Behavioral

Genetics, heading outdoors for 30 minutes when the sun is shining

can make you happier and improve your brain's ability to process

new information.

INJURIES.

lower your ankles’ center of gravity—which can reduce

ankle sprains—and help you change to a more appropriate

mid-foot strike. Honestly, fancy shoes were made so people

could run farther and bypass the natural feedback loop of

sore paws. This is a classic example trying to obtain fitness

without the necessary foot and ankle health to withstand

the mileage it takes to “get fit.”

Third, practice some running skill work. Running is a

single-leg activity, meaning that all of the work is being

done by one leg at a time in alternating fashion. On the

other side, all the force absorption, and energy recycling, is

also done on one leg. So learning to be balanced, and equal,

by engaging in running skill work can help you not run like

you have one flat tire.

Fourth is joint mobility work. Most people lack the simple

foot, ankle and hip prerequisites to hurdle themselves

through space one leg at a time. Limitations in and around

the foot are the biggest contributor to faulty mechanics and

injury-prone movement flaws.

Lastly, practice smarter movement-based warmups that

engage the entire body, and better strength training,

learning key strength-training exercises to strengthen the

hips, knees, ankles, feet and the core. These can be done

during non-running days and can really aid in unnecessary

running woes.

One thing to keep in mind is that a single strike of a

person’s running stride can carry nearly six times their

body weight in force. Meaning a 150-pound person creates

nearly a half-ton of force each strike. It’s no wonder injuries

are so prevalent.

Most people don’t set themselves in a field to rust out and

perish for years and years. Instead, they do it on a couch. As

the tolls of life accumulate and are not paid, eventually the

cost becomes too great to overcome.

We all know people in some decade of life who are in an

incredible state of disrepair, yet we all also know people of

the exact same age who appear nearly new and ready for

another five or six decades.

Your goal should be to be the shiny, maintained and restored

classic for as long as you possibly can. To achieve this, you

need to remember that it’s typically the accumulation

of small issues—that can be fixed or restored—that will

eventually disable you. So take care of yourself. Fix your

issues, do your maintenance and keep the long game in

sight. Maybe someday we’ll see you in a parade and we’ll

marvel at your condition.

PHOTOSENSITIVITY

WHAT IT IS AND HOW YOU CAN PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM IT

By Kristin Carlson, Medical Esthetician

Is your business the leader of

THE PACK?

Summer is in full swing, and we are all

rushing outside to soak up the warmer

temperatures and the sunshine! After being

covered up all winter it feels great to shed

the layers and warm up. But don’t run out into

the sunshine without the proper consideration for

your skin. Not only will you be more susceptible

to burn, certain products in your skin-care routine

or medications you take can cause photosensitivity.

Let’s talk about what photosensitivity is, what

causes it and how to avoid it.

in your skin-care products, which may cause

sensitivity to the sun. Tretinoin (or retinoids like

Retin-A), alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic acid), beta

hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) and benzoyl peroxide,

cause a thinning of the outermost layers of the skin

and increase sensitivity. While these ingredients are

amazing for treating acne and signs of aging (fine

lines and dark spots), they cause more damage with

prolonged sun exposure.

How do we avoid photosensitivity?

What is photosensitivity?

Photosensitivity is an extreme sensitivity to

ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun and other light

sources. UV rays come directly from the sun but

also bounce off water, snow and even sand, causing

indirect exposure from the elements around you.

Symptoms of photosensitivity vary from mild to

severe. The most common symptom is a skin rash or

sunburn. In some cases, a sunburn can be so severe

that blistering or peeling can occur. Reactions vary,

depending on the length of exposure and what is in

and on your body.

What causes photosensitivity?

There are many causes of photosensitivity.

Medications such as certain antibiotics, diuretics,

chemotherapy drugs and oral acne medications

can cause photosensitivity. If you are given a

prescription with a warning of photosensitivity or

“to limit your sun exposure,” take it seriously. This

means the medication has been known to cause a

reaction to UV rays. Medical conditions such as

Lupus can cause photosensitivity as well.

It is also important to pay attention to ingredients

The best way to prevent symptoms of

photosensitivity is to limit the amount of time you

spend in the sun. We know it’s the time of year

when you want to feel the warmth of the sun on

your skin! But keep in mind the risks and make

SPF your new best friend. This is not just for those

who are photosensitive—everyone should wear

sunscreen daily. Also, wear a wide-brimmed hat,

sunglasses and long sleeved lightweight clothing to

keep you out of direct sun exposure. UV rays are

always more intense at higher altitudes, so if you’re

heading to the mountains keep this in mind. If

you are a sun lover and know you will be exposed

regularly, you may consider putting those retinol

products on the back shelf for the summer. After

all, getting a sunburn is counterproductive for antiaging.

The fall is a great time to add these products

back in to your routine when the sun is much less

intense. Remember, don’t discontinue medications

without talking to your health-care provider first.

We want you to enjoy your summer. Go boating,

hang out on the beach, take a bike ride or a long

hike. Just remember to protect your skin—all your

skin—with daily SPF application and protective

clothing.

We know we are.

AN ALKALINE

DIET

THE BENEFITS AND LIMITATIONS

BY SCOTT PORTER

One of our popular health diets is the alkaline

diet. The premise is that if you make your body

less acidic this will lower the risk of destructive

diseases, like cancer. Test strips are used to

measure and monitor the pH of urine. Foods and water are

promoted that will neutralize harmful acids.

How acidic or alkaline something is can be measured by pH

on a scale of 0 to 14. Your stomach is hopefully pretty acidic,

say around 1.3 to 3.5. Blood on the other hand is slightly

alkaline and is tightly maintained around 7.35 to 7.45.

Enzymes that facilitate vital chemical reactions only work

within this narrow range.

Our lungs play an important role in maintaining consistent

pH. They do this by varying the amount of carbon dioxide

exhaled, which is more on the acidic side. The blood carries

carbon dioxide into the lungs, and the brain controls the

level of excretion by adjusting how deeply and frequently

we breathe.

The kidneys also play a role through excreting compounds

that are either acidic or alkaline. And the body makes

changes in internal pH by using a chemical buffering system.

Adjusting the proportion of carbonic acid and carbonate

keeps the pH throughout the body balanced.

Our pH levels vary. Skin ranges from 4.0 to 6.5. The fluid

inside our cells rests between 6.0 and 7.2, bile for digestion

goes from 7.6 to 8.8, and pancreatic fluid can be right at the

top at 8.8.

Urine can range from 4.6 to 8.0. You can change your urine

pH quickly through food, liquid and supplements. This

can be important if you get kidney stones or urinary tract

infections. Growth of different bacteria varies by changes in

the pH of your urine. Some stones will only form in a more

acidic environment, while others prefer an alkaline home.

It is important to understand that the pH of blood will not

be the same as the pH of your urine or saliva. These are two

separate and independent systems. Yes, what we eat has a

dramatic effect on our health. There is no doubt about that.

But what you eat, or drink, will not change the pH of your

blood.

Everything you eat and drink ends up at the same pH after

stomach acid is neutralized. The body fights very hard to

make sure nothing acidic makes it into the intestines.

Drinking alkaline water only makes it harder for your

digestion system to properly break down food because your

body has to produce increased stomach acid.

You can change the pH of your blood much easier if you

hyperventilate. This would make your body more acidic

and cause restriction in the blood vessels, especially in your

brain. You’d immediately get dizzy and eventually pass out.

Or you could hold your breath to make your body more

alkaline with the same result. I don’t suggest either.

Drinking lots of water is always a good thing. I do like the

foods on the alkaline diet and consider much of it healthy,

especially nutrient-dense whole foods. I just don’t expect it

to change my body’s pH.

Amber wants to gain weight. No

Rathdrum woman suffers from gastroparesis

used to be able to drink only a teaspoon at a

time. I have come a long way.”

Gastroparesis is a rare disease in which the

stomach cannot empty itself of food in a normal

fashion. Symptoms include heartburn, nausea,

vomiting and feeling full quickly when eating.

There is no cure for the disease that affects about

50 people out of 100,000 in the United States

annually. The psychological impact for many

people with this disease is profound, and people

can suffer from depression.

Amber, who will turn 30 this summer, says she

struggled with horrible stomach issues for years

and no one seemed to believe her symptoms

were real. Then she met Gina Prindle, a nurse

practitioner for Heritage Health.

“Gina is wonderful because she listened to me

and knew it wasn’t all in my head,” says Amber.

“She got me to a specialist who identified my

disease.”

Prindle says she had never encountered

gastroparesis, but she knew something was not

right with her patient.

“I don’t dismiss what patients are telling me, and

I accept that their symptoms are real for them,”

says Prindle. “Abdominal pain that is getting

worse should be looked at by a specialist.”

After medications were unsuccessful in

lessening Amber’s symptoms, it was decided

she needed to have a feeding tube installed. She

nearly died on May 13, 2016, after surgery to

install a feeding tube into her stomach.

“Gina helped me get through it,” says Amber. “I

love her so much.”

Amber’s body rejected the feeding tube and it

was removed the following spring in 2017. Since

then, she is working hard to eat more.

“I have an amazing husband, daughter and

family support system,” says Amber, who is

optimistic about the future. “God has shown me

what I needed to see and where I need to go.”

CHASING

FAILURE

How Tacoma’s Richard

Kresser uses defeat as

motivation

BY ANNELI FOGT

PHOTOS COURTESY OF RICHARD KRESSER

Richard Kresser stood outside a café in Bend, Oregon,

devastated. He cried as he spoke to his girlfriend over the

phone. “The trip’s over,” he told her.

His bicycle, and the 80 pounds of highly specialized gear

that had been attached to it, was gone: stolen by a passerby in the

less than 10 minutes he had been inside grabbing breakfast. It was

early July of 2018 and Richard was nearly halfway through the Tour

de Volcanoes—a human-powered, mostly self-supported challenge

he dreamed up that would see him bike to and summit the 16 active

volcanoes between Mount Lassen in California and Mount Baker

in Washington. In total, he would cover 2,400 miles on his bike and

gain 127,000 feet of elevation. On foot, the 16 summits would add

up to 180 miles with nearly 80,000 feet of elevation gain.

It was the most recent of the extreme adventures thought up by

the Tacoma-based Army veteran and ultrarunner from Iowa who

seeks out chances for failure and finds joy in overcoming it. His

motto: “If you’re not scared, it’s not a big enough goal.” He had been

planning Tour de Volcanoes for years and had already summited

six volcanoes before he found himself at that cafe with only the

clothes on his back, journal, phone and helmet. He was admitting

defeat. It was uncharacteristic … and painful.

“At that point, there’s anger and then there’s quickly acceptance,”

Richard recalls of coming to the realization his bike was stolen.

“Even if I got the bike, all the gear that I had for my very particular

style of climbing would have taken so long and been so expensive

to replace that it was that final sigh of … ‘I’ll just catch a flight and

come home.’”

But Richard found motivation in his impending defeat and, after

saying goodbye to his girlfriend, found a convenience store with a

surveillance camera nearby. The employees there had seen a bike

in the alleyway. It was his, but more than half of the gear on it had

been stolen. “Now I had my bike and it was that acceptance of ‘I do

have to keep going, and now I have even more of a hurdle of how to

CDALivingLocal.com

replace the gear,’” he says.

He took a day to regroup before picking up where he left off and

riding 40 miles west to the Three Sisters. He summited all of them

that day—36 hours after nearly scrapping the tour.

Sixty miles north was Mount Jefferson: a technical climb that

Richard, who was summiting all of these volcanoes solo, was going

into blind on a day with questionable weather. “I hadn’t seen the

route,” he says. “Not knowing what I was getting myself into was

really concerning, but taking a weather day would severely delay

me. That day was a gray area where winds were decently strong, but

they were not terrible. I was thinking, ‘I could maybe do it, but it’s

taking a lot of risk.’”

Richard recognized that while he wanted the summit, things could

go awry quickly. So he forced himself to take a rest day and wait for

better weather.

“That was such a moral conundrum,” he said. “Right after having

taken 36 hours off for the bike being stolen, all I wanted to do was

go, and having the reins pulled on me was so hard. That was the

only day I took off.”

He summited Jefferson the next day and encountered the steepest

snow he’s ever climbed without a rope. Richard admits “it was

pretty hairy,” but everything went well. After that, he knew the

hardest parts were over.

“Then it was just like, ‘OK, don’t mess up now. You

know all the rest of them,” Richard recalls.

Over the next 13 days, Richard biked to and climbed

up Mount Hood, Mount Saint Helens, Mount Adams,

Mount Rainier, Glacier Peak and Mount Baker

without a hitch. Back at the trailhead after summiting

Mount Baker on that last day, he stopped the clock

on the Tour de Volcanoes 25 days, nine hours and 58

minutes after first setting off up the slopes of Mount

Lassen more than 2,000 miles south.

Success.

*****

The snowfield Richard was standing on continued

upward in front of him at a 70-degree angle. It was

2am and the light from the full moon lit his path up

to Mount Rainier’s summit. Looking down, he could

see the headlights of cars making their way up the

winding roads inside the national park.

“It was that moment when I knew I needed more of

this in my life,” Richard says.

Born and raised in Iowa, the 21-year-old college

student had never seen a mountain. Now, he was

more than 1,700 miles from home on the side of one

of the tallest in the contiguous United States. And he

was elated.

While Richard grew up in a family that spent time

outdoors, most trips consisted of car camping and

bike riding. “I knew nothing of adventure sports,” he

says. So, when he picked up a magazine at the age of

11 and saw a person rock climbing on the cover, he

was immediately intrigued. Seven years later, when it

came time for him to go to college, he chose to study

civil engineering at Iowa State University and joined

Army ROTC with the hope that the military could

help him get to the wild, natural spaces where he

could climb.

It did. During the summer between his junior and

senior years, he and the rest of the cadets in his

class were sent to Fort Lewis (now Joint Base Lewis-

McChord) for a three-week camp where Richard saw

mountains—and Mount Rainier—for the first time.

“Just walking out on the drill grounds and seeing this

His motto:

“If you’re not

scared, it’s not

a big enough

goal.”

OVER THE NEXT 13 DAYS,

RICHARD BIKED TO AND

CLIMBED UP MOUNT HOOD,

MOUNT SAINT HELENS,

MOUNT ADAMS, MOUNT

RAINIER, GLACIER PEAK AND

MOUNT BAKER WITHOUT

A HITCH.

massive mountain right there, it was amazing,”

he recalls. “We never were allowed to leave the

base, so I didn’t really get to experience it, but I

was exposed to that.”

He returned to the Iowa State campus that

fall with a newfound desire to return West.

And he wasn’t the only one. A few classmates

he knew from being involved in the school’s

outdoor recreation program sent an email later

that semester asking who would be interested

in a two-week road trip west the following

summer to climb some of the Pacific Northwest

volcanoes, including Rainier. Richard jumped

at the chance.

“We failed on every mountain in those two

weeks except for Rainier,” Richard says. “I was a

total [disaster], I had no idea what I was doing.”

But he was hooked. “That trip, hands down,

changed my life,” he says.

He graduated in 2009 and was set to begin his

four-year term of service with the U.S. Army

in Fort Hood, Texas. In a stroke of luck, he

switched with another soldier who wanted to

go to Texas and Richard ended up back at Fort

Lewis. “I moved out here and then just went

down the rabbit hole,” he says.

During his four years at Fort Lewis, the

marathon runner started climbing and

summited all the major mountains in the area.

By the time he completed his military service

in 2013, he was looking for a challenge that

would truly test his physical prowess. He had

completed 50-mile running races before and

always felt at the end that he “had more in the

tank,” he says. He decided to return to Iowa for

the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across

Iowa (RAGBRAI)—a weeklong, 420-mile ride

from the Missouri River to the Mississippi

River. But he wouldn’t be biking, he’d be

running. “I wondered if I could run 400 miles

in seven days in the Iowa heat,” he says.

In July of 2013, he became the first person to

run the RAGBRAI route and immediately

began thinking up his next challenge. Back

in Washington, while working ski patrol at

Steven’s Pass, he concocted a plan for a brutal

trip he coined Dick’s RASH. He would go up,

down and around Rainier, Adams, St. Helens

and Hood—230 miles with 71,000 feet of

elevation gain—in seven days.

Traditionally, a trip of that scale would take

three times as long, and as he planned, Richard

began to understand the magnitude of the

undertaking. By his calculations, Rainier alone

would take one day to summit and then two

days to run around the 93-mile Wonderland

Trail. “That’s half my time on one mountain.

That was so intimidating,” he says.

After two years of training, Richard took on

the RASH in the summer of 2016. He started

at Rainier where he summited and descended

the glaciated 14,411-foot volcano in under

12 hours before heading straight for the

Wonderland Trail where he went 43 hours with

no real sleep, a sore throat and got caught in a

surprise rainstorm 20 miles from the finish line.

“Morally, I was done,” Richard recalls in a

blog post for the Mountaineers about that last

day on the Wonderland Trail. “How could I

continue in weather like this, already with a

sore throat? ‘Just keep moving,’ I told myself.

‘You never know what will happen.’ After many

hours, I finally made it to the van. I was in

horrible shape and sure I wouldn’t be able to

finish, but I couldn’t come up with an excuse

to quit. I could still walk, the sore throat was

bad but I could still eat, and I had no idea if

weather was going to be bad or good the rest of

the week. Well, got to try at least, right?”

He did more than try. Richard completed the

ascent, descent and around-the-mountain run

of Adams in just over 18.5 hours and Saint

Helens in 14.5 hours. After five days, only

Hood was left, but Richard was done—“wore

down,” as he recalled in the blog post.

“On the drive down I-5 to Hood, I cried. Just

bawled,” Richard writes in the post. “About

nothing, about everything. It was the first time

in days I was stationary and didn’t have anything

else to think about. All of the emotions from

the previous three mountains flooded over

me, all the positives and all the negatives. And

“It kept getting

closer and

closer. I was

crying again. It

was so beautiful.

I was at the

summit.”

to think I was only one mountain away from

being done. So close ….”

Richard’s 14-hour run around Hood was rough,

but he kept moving forward and, after a threehour

nap, he set off for the summit with skis

on his back—determined to make this descent

fun. But the ascent was hard. Richard found

it hard to move uphill. “All my reserves were

spent,” he writes. “Slowly, but surely, I made

progress up Hood. It kept getting closer and

closer. I was crying again. It was so beautiful. I

was at the summit.”

In the parking lot after skiing what he calls

“some of the happiest turns” of his life six

hours after setting off for Hood’s summit and

one week after beginning the RASH, there was

no fanfare for Richard’s feat. “I was just walking

back to my car after having just finished this

big achievement. No one around me knew

what I’d just did,” he said.

But that’s just how he likes it. For Richard,

these feats are not about gaining recognition or

setting records. They’re about acknowledging

the possibility of failure, using it as motivation,

and overcoming. “It’s an internal feeling—that

quiet satisfaction of being able to do something

I set out to do—that’s why I do it,” he says.

Professionally, Richard is a firefighter for the

City of Everett, works for Steven’s Pass Ski

Patrol in the winters and organizes Skimo—

uphill ski touring— events in Washington state

through the company he founded, Snow Goat

Skimo.

Travel Tips

FOR TRAVELING WITH KIDS

AVOID THE STRESS WITH THESE TIPS

BY PATTY HUTCHENS

DISCUSS YOUR PLANS

IN ADVANCE

PLAN FOR

DELAYS

DON'T OVERPACK &

GIVE THE KIDS INPUT

When planning your trip, be sure to talk about

your plans in advance and, if your children are at

the appropriate age, allow them to be involved in

the planning process. Offer them options of various

activities that you can all participate in and allow

plenty of time for each stage of the trip so you are not

rushed. Also, allow for downtime. While traveling

can be exhilarating, it can be exhausting too. Try to

keep kids’ bedtimes close to that which they have at

home. By doing so, you will have a happier travel

companion! You may also want to consider renting

a home through Airbnb or VRBO as opposed to a

hotel room so parents can have some time of their

own after the kids go to bed.

Planning ahead for delays can help alleviate stress.

If you are traveling by plane, be sure to pack extra

snacks and activities for the kids to do in the event of

a flight delay. Do you typically limit screen time while

at home? This is the time to maybe ease up on those

restrictions and allow the kids to have some added

fun while keeping them occupied at the same time!

For older kids, one thing that can help keep them

busy is keeping a journal, either handwritten or on

their laptop. It’s a way they can document their trip,

and it can also provide them with something to do in

the event delays take place.

Don’t over pack! Kids (and adults) tend to want to

bring all they can on a trip. After all, it’s nice to have

choices, right? Allow the kids to have some input

into what goes into their suitcase, but remind them

that whether it’s a backpack or a small roller bag,

they will have to help transport all they bring. By all

means, though, if they have a favorite stuffed animal

or blanket that gives them comfort, that is a “must”

when it comes to packing.

NOUN: A STRONG DESIRE FOR OR

IMPULSE TO WANDER OR TRAVEL AND

EXPLORE THE WORLD

CHOOSE ENGAGING

ACTIVITIES

BE PREPARED FOR

EVERYTHING

BREAK UP THE

TRIP

Depending upon the age of your children, consider

bringing a paper map along. While we have come

to rely on Siri and our car’s navigation systems for

directions, it can be fun for kids to follow along

with the route and may possibly keep them from

asking you, “How long until we stop?” Books on CD

can also help make the trip go faster for everyone!

Choose something that will engage your child. If you

have satellite radio, there are several choices for kids’

channels as well. And when all else fails, be ready to

break into song and have everyone else sing along!

Family vacations are fun, and they don’t have to be

stressful. Just remember, plan and pack accordingly

and involve the kids as much as possible from the

start. They’ll feel more invested, and that goes a long

way to family harmony!

Equip your car for anything that may come your

way! Be sure to bring a lot of Ziploc baggies and a

marker to label them. These can come in handy in

a multitude of situations, especially snacks! Even

if your child is potty trained, be sure to pack some

wipes in the car. Whether it’s that spilled juice on

the car seat or cleaning a messy face, you will be

glad you brought them along. Also be sure to pack

a little first aid kit for cuts and scrapes. Don’t forget

to include medication—you never know when an

upset stomach could sabotage your journey! If your

children are little, also include painter’s tape and use

it to cover outlets in hotels. It’s easy to use and is not

damaging to surfaces the way masking tape can be.

If you are traveling by car, especially with a toddler,

be sure to break up the trip. It is natural to want to get

in and just drive to our destination to arrive sooner

than later, but a few hours into the trip you will

quickly realize this is not realistic. When planning

your trip, strategize as to where you can stop for

breaks and allow your children to get some activity.

Perhaps pack a picnic lunch and eat in a park where

they can run around, play on a playground and let

out some of that stored up energy.

Budget Travel

How to plan a summer vacation on a tight budget

By Marguerite Cleveland

Summer is upon us, and it is time for that annual rite of passage—the summer vacation. It can be an

expensive extravaganza or you can choose a more frugal option. Some of my best memories of family

vacations are the ones that were the least expensive. With a little planning and creativity you can have a

fun vacation that won’t break the bank.

Staycation. The staycation is the ultimate budget vacation, but you have to make some rules first to ensure it is

a vacation. The rules are: Decide the length of the vacation, determine a budget, stick to it and lastly no work.

This last one is tough and must be agreed upon by all parties. No family yard work, no house projects and no

working from home.

Plan activities for each day and visit local attractions. Maybe invest in a family membership that you can use all

summer at a local aquarium, museum or pool. Turn your backyard into a summer playground with fun yard

toys. It’s low tech, but running through a sprinkler never gets old. Rent an outdoor movie screen for summer

movies under the stars and purchase movie candy from the dollar store. The key is to spend time together as a

family and just have some fun.

At the end of the week, invest in a night at a waterpark hotel. For a family of four the cost is about the same as a

day at a waterpark. Many hotels will let you check in early to use the waterpark and stay later the next day after

ROAD TRIPS ARE ONE OF THE MORE

ECONOMICAL WAYS TO TRAVEL

WITH A FAMILY VERSUS THE HIGH

COST OF PLANE TICKETS TO A

DESTINATION.

you check out to swim some more. Make sure to bring snacks to save

money, as nothing builds an appetite like swimming.

Summer Road Trip. Road trips are one of the more economical ways to

travel with a family versus the high cost of plane tickets to a destination.

The first rule of thumb is to plan how far you want to drive. For a

weekend trip plan no further than a three- to four-hour drive. If you are

planning for a weeklong trip, venture out about a seven- to eight-hour

drive. Consider more scenic routes and research fun stops along the way.

Next decide if you want to go to multiple destinations or make a base

at one location. The more relaxing route is to pick a location and then

venture out from there.

When traveling with family, a cabin or vacation rental can save you

money. You may pay slightly more than a hotel room but you can cut

costs by cooking some of your meals. For budget lodging check state

parks or campgrounds for low-cost cabin rentals. Websites like AirBnB.

com or VRBO also offer options for economic vacation rentals. Spend

some time researching your options and look for any specials at your

destination. Often resorts will offer a free night if you stay for a certain

number of days.

Plan to eat breakfast at your lodging, have your big meal at lunch at a

restaurant where lunch prices are less than dinner, bring back leftovers

and supplement with other foods for an easy dinner. Purchasing local

favorites or specialties makes a fun meal. Plan easy cookouts. You can

also cook and freeze meals to bring with you. This allows the cook in the

family to vacation without spending lots of time in the kitchen. For the

car pack a snack box and a cooler with cold drinks. During the summer

heat, beverages can quickly add up in costs if purchasing on the road.

For savings on lodging, some surprising places offer deals. Groupon is

a go to for local deals, but did you know they offer travel deals as well?

Rakuten.com (formerly Ebates.com) offers cashback on hotels and

vacations. A quick search revealed offers from 3 to 10 percent cashback

on hotel websites, and discount sites like Expedia and TripAdvisor. You

can double dip by going through Rakuten to access Groupon. You will

get cashback on your Groupon discounted purchase—a win all around.

Also, when searching for lodging, check the pricing on different dates.

For example, in big cities with lots of business travel, rates are often

more expensive during the week, and they offer specials on the weekend

whereas a resort area is more costly on weekends than on weekdays.

CDALivingLocal.com

83


Summer Cruise. A cruise is a more expensive

endeavor, but if you are willing to wait until the last

minute there are deals to be had. VacationsToGo.

com is one of the best websites for discount travel.

Although prices may be the same on other sites,

they often have onboard ship credits and other

perks available only through VacationsToGo. The key to making a cruise

a good deal is you must be able to drive to the port, and the ship needs

to start and end at the same port. Last-minute airfare for a family of four

defeats the cost savings of booking last minute. At the time this article

was written, the site had many Alaska cruise deals out of Seattle and

Vancouver for as much as 79 percent off. This deal offered a price of $749

(not including taxes) per person for an ocean-view cabin with a brochure

price of $3,498—and also threw in a $175 per cabin onboard credit. The

less expensive cabins sell first, so oftentimes last minute you can pick up

a great deal on an ocean-view or balcony cabin. One offer was less than

$400 (not including taxes) a person for a seven-day Alaskan cruise.

Once you are on your cruise you can save additional money by taking

the time to plan your trip. Take advantage of all the things your cruise

includes. Plan your shore excursions so that you eat all your meals on

the ship. Shore excursions in Alaska are pricey, but by researching the

ports of call you can save money. Many Alaskan ports are walkable. You

can spend your time in port seeing quite a bit on your feet. One thing to

be aware of if you book an excursion through the cruise line: They will

make sure you are back or will wait for you if it is delayed when the ship

is due to depart. You do not have this guarantee when you book a shore

excursion through another business.

When shopping look for unusual options for souvenirs to reduce your

costs. In Sitka, the Russian Orthodox Church had a wonderful gift shop

with very good prices; many under $10. When on the ship, look for deals

that can save you money. Drinks can be pricey, but one cruise line offered

a pub crawl through all the areas on the ship that served mixed drinks for

not much more than the cost of one drink. At each stop you received a

cocktail or shot themed for that stop. Some ships will offer wine tastings

for a set price.

When planning a budget vacation, the Internet is your friend. Research,

research, research. This is the key to finding great deals. Read forums on

websites. Facebook has travel pages and groups for every interest. The

website for your destination is also a wealth of information. Send away

for free area guides. Do a web search for coupons for an attraction you

want to visit. Use Groupon for the destination you are traveling to for

discounts on food, activities and even spa treatments. If you are willing

to put the work in beforehand, it will pay off by lowering the cost of your

vacation.

BLISTERED PEPPER +

ARUGULA CHICKEN SALAD

Recipe & Photo Courtesy of Marina Gunn

@marinagunn | MarinaGunn.com

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups arugula

5-7 sweet peppers

1/2 red onion (sliced thinly)

2 chicken breasts, shredded

2 tbsp. dijon mustard

1/2 tsp. of dried dill or 1-2 sprigs of fresh dill

juice of 1 lemon

pinch of salt

1-2 tbsp. olive oil

METHOD:

• Place sweet peppers in a skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil on

medium high for 5 to 6 minutes until crisp. Flip and cook for an

additional 2 to 3 minutes, so that both sides are golden brown.

• While the peppers are cooking, place arugula in a bowl and top

with thinly sliced red onion and chicken; it’s the perfect addition

to the salad. Also substitute fish or even a cooked egg!

• In a small bowl, whisk dijon mustard with dill, lemon juice and a

pinch of salt. Once combined, slowly add the olive oil while still

whisking to allow the oil and mustard to emulsify and combine

for a creamy dressing.

• Once the peppers are cooked, top the salad with the dressing and

peppers. Enjoy!

From the Ashes

North Idaho’s premier barbecue event returns

to Settlers Creek BY JILLIAN CHANDLER

THIS DEFINITELY ISN’T YOUR AVERAGE SUNDAY COOKOUT IN THE BACKYARD.

Meat lovers, prepare yourselves for a barbecue like you’ve never experienced

before—unless you were fortunate enough to attend the inaugural 2018 event. For

the second year, this American smoked and fired foods adventure makes its way

to Settlers Creek.

This year, the event has been extended from one day to two. Friday, June 21,

from 5 to 9pm, you won’t want to miss the Light the Fires Dinner. Andy Buffington

of Hiro’s BBQ, Brad Peugh of Bohica Smoke and Christopher White of Cosmic

Cowboy Grill kick off the weekend with a traditional Low Country Boil-style dinner,

and beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Saturday, June 22, 11am to 4pm, nationally recognized pitmasters from across the

country will once again gather in Coeur d’Alene at Settlers Creek where they will

showcase the best of the best in American barbecue. From brisket and whole hog

to salmon and turkey, paired with traditional and not-so-ordinary side dishes, the

pitmaster stations are sure to impress at this summer celebration!

In addition to the pitmaster stations for sampling the various barbecue styles

and accompaniments, the event will also feature some of Idaho’s favorite area

culinarians leading an “Application Station” where guests can connect with local

chefs to learn new ways to prepare these primal cuts of smoked and fired foods.

Chefs include Davd Adlard, Candle in the Woods; Matt Curmi, Wildwood Grilling;

Nick Isenberg, Chomper Café; and Teresa Whitney, Sysco Spokane.

Along with the mouth-watering food offerings, you have the opportunity to

sip regional craft beers and wines. There will also be activities, games and

entertainment throughout the day. Families are invited to eat, sip and enjoy a

beautiful North Idaho summer’s day at Settlers Creek.

HIGHLIGHT EVENT

Friday’s dinner tickets are priced $29 for adults, $15 for youth, $85 for a family pack

(two adults and two youth); Saturday tickets are $35 for adults (with drink ticket),

$30 (no drink ticket), $15 for youth, $97 for a family pack (two adults and two

youth). On-site parking is available for $10 each day. For more information and to
