the lowdown on cabinetry
AN ART FORM UNTO ITSELF
BY NIKKI LUTTMANN, INTERIOR DESIGNER
Cabinetry is often the first thing my clients and I choose when working on a new construction project or
kitchen remodel. Why? Because the cabinetry sets the tone for the entire room—and often the rest of the
Cabinetry is really an art form unto itself. Not only does it have to be functional, but it needs to be beautiful and
durable as well. Yet, there are so many different types and styles it can be difficult to start. Cabinet boxes are the
storage units themselves. These often come in set size—counter height and multiple widths, though they can be
customized to include drawers, pullouts, doors and more. The key to selecting the correct sizes for your kitchen
is to really take a look at the things you have to store and where you like to store them. Do you like to keep dishes
overhead in upper units, or do you prefer a lower-unit dish drawer? The options are endless, but there are often only
a few that are exactly right for how you live and cook. Working with a good salesperson can really help streamline
After functionality comes style. Do you like a more ornate door and drawer combo? Something with a little more
detail works wonderfully in more traditional homes. I’m a fan of the Shaker style myself, but now there are usually
options within the Shaker style, some with a beaded molding, some plain. Some with a slab drawer front versus a
drawer with a border to match the door. Shaker works well with a variety of interiors—from modern to formal and
everything in between, which is why it is a go-to for designers.
Finally, there is the color to consider. While painted cabinetry is all the rage right now, people are often surprised to
find that painted styles typically cost more than their stained wood counterparts. This is because painted surfaces

are more labor-intensive to produce and leave no room for
error—they must be smooth and blemish free. Typical woods
for cabinetry include beech (often considered builder-grade
for its affordability), alder, cherry, walnut and, of course, oak.
These can all be stained a variety of colors and are offered in an
array of styles. Beware, however, that not all woods are created
equal. Walnut, for example, while pricey, is soft and may ding
and dent more easily than other woods.
If, like me, you are a brave soul, you can paint your existing
cabinetry to give your kitchen and baths an updated look. I
used a primer and natural milk-based paint, which covered
well. Chalk paint is a popular option and covers well, also.
However, keep in mind that as with any paint job, the finished
product is only as good as the preparation. It pays to do a light
sanding, use a cleaning agent and degreaser, such as TSP, and
then always use a primer, which helps the paint adhere to the
surface. And you will be doing multiple coats of paint, then
adding a layer or two of sealant, so make sure you set aside
plenty of time for this project!

Deciding what boat is right
By Patty Hutchens
Sit back, close your eyes and picture
yourself on the beautiful open water
with the sun beating down on you. If
you try hard enough, you will be able
to hear the laughter and joy coming from
those who accompany you on this adventure.
Maybe it’s your children or friends. Or maybe
it’s just you and your significant other. For
many that may seem just like a dream, but it
can become a reality, and knowing where to
start and how to choose the correct boat for
your needs is important when making such
a large investment. Do you see yourself on a
pontoon boat? Do you and your family enjoy
waterskiing, wakeboarding and tubing? Perhaps
the tranquility of a sailboat is what appeals to
you most. Do you enjoy getting out in the early
morning hours and fishing?
Because each boat is specific and specialized,
what one you buy will be driven by what
activities you will want to enjoy while on the
water. Finding a boat to fit your activities, tastes,
needs of your crew and budget will require
research. One way to be exposed to a plethora
of options is to attend a boat show. Boat shows
typically can be found nationwide beginning in
fall going all the way into May. Spokane’s boat
show is usually in February of each year. The
next one in Seattle is scheduled for January 24
through February 1 of 2020. Boat shows will
afford you the opportunity to ask questions
of the experts and peruse the many options

optimal use of your new purchase. Is it realistic to think
you want something you can put on a trailer and haul from
home to water each time you want to use it? If not, be sure to

If entertaining friends while gliding at lower speeds across
the water while making dinner on the grill is something that
you envision, a pontoon boat is the perfect solution. They
have become increasingly popular in recent years thanks
to pontoon tube design, new boat-building materials,
innovations in outdoor fabrics and efficient outboard
engines. You can get one with the basics or go all out and
purchase one with a second story complete with a slide
for some family fun! Once thought of as slow-moving
vessels, today there are pontoon boats with as much as 900
horsepower and ones that can top speeds in the 60s. They also
come with performance pontoon “tube” packages, allowing
them to corner as well as some traditional fiberglass-hulled
If you are into watersports, there can be many factors to
consider when deciding what boat will best suit your needs.
According to Boating Magazine, each tow sport requires
its own specific wake characteristics. For instance, slalom
skiers want small wakes, whereas wakeboard riders and
wake surfers desire larger wakes. And for those who don’t
need one for a specific sport, there is a crossover boat that
allows you to ride, surf and ski.
In an August 2017 article, Boating Magazine reports, “A few
builders make crossover boats that let you ride, surf and ski,
such as the Malibu 20 VTX, Nautique G20, Supra SR and
the Tigé RZR. These boats typically use a V-drive engine,
but the shorter and lighter size along with empty ballast
tanks keep the wake smaller for recreational slalom skiing.”
If sailing is your thing, then the best advice is to start with
something small and perfect your skills before moving
up. Experts suggest that adults are best starting off with
something in the 22- to 27-foot range, (if kids will be
learning, they should start with something smaller). A boat
of this size is typically easy to sail, won’t capsize, has ample
room and is affordable. Take advantage of others’ knowledge
and ask local sailors for their advice as well.
If, after ample research and inquiries, you are still uncertain,
try renting a boat for a day. There are many places available
to rent anything from small speed boats to larger pontoons.
It is best to take advantage of these opportunities before
making an investment you may quickly regret.
So you’ve come to your decision, and it’s time to make that
investment. Boat loans are very similar to car loans, with

a specific amount on which you pay interest over a fixed term.
They are available through banks, credit unions, boat dealers
or marine finance companies. If you can make a sizeable down
payment and have a low debt-to-income ratio, you may qualify
for a subprime loan. When deciding what you can truly afford,
be sure to consider the cost of ongoing maintenance, storage,
insurance and the ever-fluctuating cost of fuel.
Boat loans can be both secured and unsecured. Since a secured
loan allows the lender to take back the boat in case of default,
unsecured loans are a higher risk to the lender and will typically
have a higher interest rate. Secured loans can generally be as long
as a 20-year term, depending on the amount and lender, while
unsecured loans are typically no longer than seven years.
Interest rates, as of April 2019, were between 4 and 6 percent on
secured loans, but things the lender will consider include credit
history, loan term and loan amount. For a secured loan, the
lender will also likely do a marine survey to assess the condition
of the boat.
We live in a beautiful place with many opportunities to get out
and enjoy the water. Be sure to do your research, even test drive
or rent a few of your choices, and consider what you can afford.
After making that purchase, you will be guaranteed that your
investment will pay off with years of wonderful memories.

REACHING AGREEMENTS IN DIVORCE MEDIATION
By Felicia A. Soleil, Attorney/Mediator
What do you mean when you make a
promise? What is the difference between
a promise and a vow? If you break a vow,
does that mean you won’t keep your
These are questions that often haunt my divorce
mediation clients. They come to mediation hoping to
disentangle their financial life and create a co-parenting
plan in a non-adversarial way yet may have questionable
levels of trust between them. Each party claims they can
be trusted to abide by informal agreements but may be
hesitant to believe the other person will be as capable.
I usually explore their “trust factor” early on by asking
each of them, “On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being
minimal trust and 10 being complete trust, how would
you gauge how much you trust the other person to abide
by agreements if made in mediation?” Of course, there
are couples who have mutually decided to amicably
divorce and come to the process with high levels of trust
between them. However, more often than not, at least
one party assigns a low level of trust to the other party.
A track record of broken promises or, more significantly,
broken marriage vows, has contributed to the end of the
marriage and brought them to my office.
Webster’s Dictionary defines a promise as “a declaration
or assurance that one will do a particular thing.” Rising
to another level, a vow is defined as “a solemn promise,”
synonymous with an oath, pledge or commitment.
What they both have in common is that neither
requires a signed document to create the pledge. Yet, the
result of breaking a vow or promise can be extremely
detrimental to a relationship. Trust is now in jeopardy,
creating a significant barrier to the future stability of the
Does a broken promise, or worse, a broken marriage
vow, mean that the offending party is incapable of
committing to divorce-related agreements in good
faith without having every agreement memorialized
in a written, signed document? “Good faith” is defined
by Webster’s as “honesty or sincerity of intention.” Can
someone who broke a solemn marriage vow now be
relied upon to keep a simple, interim agreement made
during mediation? Can they still be honest and sincere?
How can trust be rebuilt? What kind of accountability
should be expected? “Good faith” is a key component to
If they commit to mediation, we then explore the different
levels of memorializing their agreements based on their
levels of trust. These are: 1) a good faith agreement,
akin to a “handshake,” not memorialized in a signed
document; 2) a written Memorandum of Understanding
agreement that both parties sign, which can then be
presented to the court if mediation terminates and the
agreement needs to be upheld; or 3) a court order, which
is signed by the court as a “Temporary Agreement,”
and can be cause for possible court sanctions, further
I’m happy to report that my mediation clients have
never opted for the Temporary Court Order option.
Most clients, when challenged, want to prove to each
other that they are capable of keeping promises and
holding trust despite past challenges. They are eager to
establish a new kind of relationship so they can dissolve
their marriage on better terms than what caused them
to part, especially if they want to respectfully co-parent
their children. Although all final financial and parenting
agreements are memorialized in legally binding required
documents at the conclusion of their case, the majority
of their “mini-agreements” made along the way are made
in good faith. Mediation provides divorcing parties the
opportunity to rebuild trust while encouraging keeping
promises through positive feedback and accountability.
Felicia Soleil helps her clients in achieving resolutions that
foster both a compassionate ending to their union and a
healthy new beginning for them and their families so they
can focus on moving on, rather than simply moving out.

ARTWORK BY ANNE DEMILLE FLOOD
I asked Anne deMille Flood, one of the artists who has participated for over 20 years in
the Proctor Arts Fest, to share the story behind her work. Born and raised in Tacoma,
her colored pencil drawings featuring this fair city are quite popular. Her palette is
bright and dynamic. She calls the style “retro-realism.”
“My early work had a very mid-century vibe, and I was playing with light, neon, classic
cars as my subject matter, which I like to call retro-realism. All my work is realism but
with a twist of how I see a subject.”
Her playful vision mixes nostalgia with exquisite attention to detail as she creates
vibrant images of Tacoma’s local scenery and favorite hot spots.
Preserving Tacoma’s history is also important to her and she includes well-researched
stories with her art prints. I asked her to share some of the tales she’s uncovered.
“Oh my, I have learned so much about Tacoma through my art. One of my favorite
stories is that the tradition of standing and removing your hat for the national anthem
was started at the Bostwick building by a group of Civil War veterans.
“Another is that the Java Jive is the first prefab building on the West Coast. It was
constructed in pieces on the tideflats and moved to its current location in 1929 to be
“One other story that I love is that in 1874, Old
St. Peter’s church in Old Town was constructed
in seven days by lumberyard workers who
hauled the green lumber up the hill and built
the church … had I not become an artist,
I would have made a great history teacher,
because it is a subject that I love.”
Though deMille Flood has traveled and lived
in many cities, including San Francisco and
Hawaii, T-Town called her back.
“Tacoma always felt like home and I honestly
felt it had all the attributes of a world-class
city,” says deMille Flood. “Our architecture,
peninsula location ringed by water and
mountains and our gem, Point Defiance Park,
makes this city worthy of recognition and
recording our treasures.
The fest is a great
way to mingle
with local artists,
You’ll have the

“The basis for inspiration is feeling, and I love it here, plain and simple, and I feel that
comes through in my work.”
Her art is an enthusiastic celebration of this fair city, indeed.
“My art business is all about the relationships that I have with my customers, so please
drop by and meet me. I love to hear your stories!”
Artwork is just one of the many offerings at the Proctor Arts Fest waiting for you to

I asked Maddy Dullum about her upcoming performance. It’s her first time on stage at
the Proctor Arts Fest, and she’s excited to be selected as a performer this year.
“It’s truly amazing to be a part of a collection of artists coming together to showcase
our art in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Tacoma,” said Dullum. “The vibe at the
Proctor Arts Fest is very eclectic and welcoming. You can find a little bit of everything.
It’s joyful, celebratory and energizing.”
Though it’s her first time at the fest, she’s no stranger to the local music scene. Dullum’s
been performing since she was a kid growing up in Gig Harbor. She began playing in
local coffee shops and eventually entered the Gig Harbor Star Search contest, where she
met Luke Stanton, who will be performing with her. One of the many things that will
catch your eye and ear about Stanton is his ‘lap-style’ guitar playing. Both musicians are
singer/songwriters with their own artistic voice and style, which happen to harmonize
I asked what inspires Dullum: “Old photographs, journals from high school, friendships
that didn’t last, my beat-up station wagon, big dreams for the future, my faith, and the
broken and bumpy ride that it’s been,” she said.
HOME WINE BABY
She adds that her sisters are a big inspiration. And, as with many creatives, the imagination
is a fertile place. “Just having the freedom of storytelling—and make-believe—is big for
Her musical influences include: Tori Amos, Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie),
Bernadette Peterson, Haley Reinhart and Sara Bareilles.
“I’m also very influenced by my friends in this local music community. Many of them are
full-time musicians, and I’d love to follow that path,” adds Dullum.
Artists seem particularly inspired by the unique environment of the Pacific Northwest,
and Dullum agrees. “These warm summery days we’ve been having, that we wait so long
for, flip on a switch for me. Somehow every season we have around here triggers a sort of
nostalgia that you can’t find anywhere else.”

Manfred Scharmach heads the only family owned BMW dealership in Western Washington. Last
year BMW Northwest celebrated their 50th anniversary and is one of the oldest BMW dealerships
in the nation. Werner Scharmach, Manfred’s father, immigrated from Germany in 1956 and
began his career as an auto mechanic. His hard work paid off when he was able to open his own
business, European Motor Service. In 1968, BMW offered Werner a franchise, and before the sign
was even up the family sold eight cars. With Manfred now at the helm, the family dream continues
not only a successful business but a legacy of community involvement and support.

TO RUN A BUSINESS

Q. BMW Northwest is a strong supporter of
community and charitable causes with a 50-
year track record of giving. In addition to your
personal involvement, can you tell us how you
have encouraged your employees to get involved?
A. My dad always made time for community and
is proud to have been one of the founders of the
Clover Park Rotary Chapter. Over the years, we’ve
supported many causes like the American Heart
Association and great organizations like America’s
Car Museum and Washington Premier Football
Club. For our 50th anniversary, my wife Lori
and I wanted to expand our charitable reach and
impact and pledged $50k of giving. Each of the 250
employees was allocated funds to direct to a 501(c)
(3) cause of their choice. There are many worthy
organizations we were able to work with through
this program that we’ll be expanding it this year to
include a donation request element called Say Yes!
Q. Tacoma is home to two car museums, but
not many people know you have a collection of
vintage cars (all BMWs?) that you share with the
public. Can you tell us about the collection and
how one can go see it?
A. I’ve been collecting BMWs for around 20
years, and we have 14 cars in the collection on
display at the BMW Northwest Pre-Owned Center
showroom in Fife. My first collector car is the
’88 M6 that we took in trade, although I’m most
attached to the ‘72 2002 TII. In 1963 my dad
opened his first company European Motor Service
in Olympia. He was approached to sell BMWs in
’68. It was the 1600 and 2002 models that jump
started sales. After that, Dad changed the name
from European Motors to BMW Northwest.
Q. You serve on the BMW Product Committee
representing the U.S. Any new model teasers you
can share with our readers?
A. We can’t discuss much of the information we
are privy to back in Germany. I can say that BMW
is very invested in the highest level of autonomous
driving. And it’s only a couple of years away. We’ll
see level 3 and 4 coming on line in the next year or
so. BMW is focused on safety and technology in
electrification and making sure that it drives like
a BMW, not like a box of batteries going down the
Q. Werner, your 87-year-old father, daughter
Maddie (who recently took on the role of
company spokesperson) and you will film a
commercial together this summer. Can you share
how special that is to have three generations
come together to celebrate what your father
started 50 years ago?
A. I think you said it. It’s extremely special and
makes you reflect on the last 50 years. In the early
days when my dad would have to put down his
wrench to toss someone keys for a test drive, I
doubt he envisioned that same company would
one day be named Washington Family Business of
the Year in the LARGE business category. My dad
and mom worked hard to build the foundation
of BMW Northwest. He set the example on how
to run a business and how to take care of each
customer and to pay attention to every detail. It’s
the cornerstone of how we do business today.

EAT YOUR WAY …
TO FABULOUS SKIN THIS SUMMER!
BY PAMELA DAWN BOLADO, LE PAMIER
there is no need for
Clinical Aesthetics & Permanent Makeup
Lasers | Oncology Skincare
Collagen, hydration and some of the most delicious
summer foods are the key to younger-looking, wrinklefree
and hydrated skin.
That may not be surprising news, but know there is no need for
expensive supplements when you can feed your skin with delicious
foods rich in all you need!
Collagen occurs naturally in the skin, strengthening, acting as a
natural support structure to keep us looking youthful and effortlessly
radiant. It is nature’s way of vanquishing the skin of wrinkles.
As we age, the production of collagen begins to slow down, so skin
loses its elasticity and becomes thinner—and that’s when wrinkles
begin to appear.
Excessive sun exposure, alcohol and a bad diet can all contribute
to the loss, but it is possible to plump the skin with an extra hit of
collagen and slow down the aging process in its tracks.
Up Those Vitamin C Levels
Vitamin C-rich foods are essential when it comes to plumping your
skin with collagen. Vitamin C is an antioxidant which slows down
the rate of damage caused by free radicals. Excellent sources are red
peppers, strawberries, raspberries, kiwis, pineapple, papaya, leafy
green veggies, tomatoes, oranges and pomegranate.
Stop Eating Sugary Treats
Indulging in sugary treats will not only cause you to pile on the
pounds; it will also add years to your appearance. It’s considered
to age you even more than a lifetime of lying in the sun. Choose
treats naturally sweetened with stevia or monk fruit. I’ve eliminated
sugar from my coffee and diet as much as possible and noticed a
significant difference over the past couple of years.
Antioxidants will help to fight off free radicals and environmental
damage that causes skin to age. Green tea is packed full of anti-aging
antioxidants that will promote additional collagen production and
keep wrinkles at bay.
I love carrots not only for their deliciousness, but they are rich in
vitamin A, which helps to slow down the breakdown of collagen
and elastin that cause skin aging. A good dose of vitamin A helps
stimulate collagen and strengthens the elastin on the surface of
the skin. Choose organic carrots when possible, as they are a great
natural source to protect against UV skin damage.
Kick The Canola To The Curb And Use Avocado
Rich in vitamin E, avocado oil will protect free radicals while the
omega-3 fatty acids will help to naturally boost skin’s collagen levels.
Drinking at least eight glasses of water a day will help rid the body
and skin of toxins. Try infusing your water with antioxidant- and
vitamin C-rich berries, citrus fruits and herbs!
Massaging your face daily with a vitamin-rich serum or facial oil
will help boost the production of collagen, give skin a more plump
appearance, help stimulate blood flow and flush the lymph glands
to promote clear skin.

YOU’VE HEARD A LOT ABOUT IT …
Is the Keto Diet for You?
6 THINGS YOU THINK MIGHT BE TRUE BUT ARE NOT
BY JOETTA COOK AND ROSIE ZORKO, LIPOMELT STUDIO
both red & near
is effective in
shaping & toning
The keto diet has been around for 90 years and is gaining in
popularity. Some of the most noted benefits are quick weight
loss, blood-sugar stabilization, suppressed hunger, more focus
and sharper memory. If you decide to go this route, there are a
few things you need to know first.
Myth 1: Your body goes into ketoacidosis.
When you go on this diet, your body enters a metabolic state called
ketosis. This means your body is burning fat for fuel instead of glucose,
which is obtained through eating carbohydrates. During this process,
the body breaks down fat and converts it into ketone bodies. Diabetics
can run the risk of ketoacidosis caused by the body not getting enough
insulin and ketone levels being high at the same time.
Myth 2: You can go off and on keto and keep the weight off.
If you don’t commit to the diet and go back in forth between keto and
carbs from one day to the next, you will not be able to keep the weight
off. It must be sustained to be effective. The first time you go on the diet,
it is generally recommended that you follow it for 30 to 90 days, and
then take a break.
Myth 3: You can eat all the bacon you want.
The keto diet does not give you the go-ahead to eat all the bacon and
butter you want. The healthiest way to get fat into your diet is to limit
these saturated fats and go with healthy unsaturated fats like olive oil,
avocados and nuts in moderation.
Myth 4: You can’t eat fruits and veggies.
Yes, fruits and veggies have carbohydrates, but you should not avoid
them. They are an important source of vitamins, antioxidants and fiber,
and your body needs them to function correctly. However, you will want
to stick to fruits like berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries) and
non-starch veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, zucchini).
Myth 5: You can’t exercise on keto.
Exercise is important and beneficial for just about everyone, including
those on a keto diet. Initially you might feel less energized during your
workouts, but this should dissipate as your body adjusts. Even during
high-intensity workouts, keto does not seem to cause any decline in
performance. Be sure you consume enough calories in general and
plenty of fat.
Myth 6: You can’t drink any alcohol on keto.
Some people choose to still consume alcohol in moderation while on
the keto diet, especially organic red wine or hard liquor. It is best to
consume with a meal that contains plenty of fat and some protein. You
will want to avoid any drinks that are high in sugar/carbs.
If you are considering the keto diet, you will want to follow the diet
strictly and correctly, plus take exogenous ketones for additional
Exogenous (external) ketones are supplements that provide you with an
instant source of ketones, usually in the form of beta-hydroxybutyrate
(BHB), helping to push you into ketosis and giving you more energy.
We recommend KetoGen4 to our clients. In addition to the four BHB
salts, it has four proprietary blends (fat burning, alkalizing, apoptogenic
and enzyme blends) designed not only to expedite ketosis but also to
relieve any uncomfortable side effects, improving feelings of well-being
during the process.
There are many ways to lose weight and you must choose the option
that works best for your weight-loss goals, lifestyle and one that ends
up being something you can stick with. We recommend the keto diet in
our studio, along with red-light therapy, to enhance our clients’ weightloss
and health goals.

A TEAM YOU CAN TRUST
Gig Harbor’s premier real estate brokerage

“It’s a testament to the kind
of man and father he is —
all three sons followed him
into the family business.”
local real estate brokerage servicing the residential real estate needs of the
South Sound community for more than three decades, Properties NW
continues to provide a dedicated and seasoned team of high-performing
brokers. They strive to create the best experience for their clients from
beginning to end, offering expert consultation and personalized services to deliver
on clients’ real estate needs.
Joe Mercado opened the doors of Properties NW in Downtown Gig Harbor in
1983. Years later, after graduating from Western Washington University in 2000,
son Patrick would join the family business as a junior broker. Patrick took over as
owner and designated broker when Joe retired in 2011, and brothers Graham and
Jake also join the family business as brokers.
Patrick was inspired to join Properties NW in that it afforded him the opportunity
to work with his father and brothers. “After college I began working as an accountant
of sorts at UPS. I realized pretty quickly that working from a cubicle all day wasn’t
something I wanted to do long term,” Patrick recalls. “Right about that time my dad
asked if joining him at Properties NW was something I would be interested in. I
didn’t wait long to say yes and jump in.”
“It’s a testament to the kind of man and father he is—all three sons followed him
into the family business to continue running the company he built from the ground
In 2018, after 35 years in the same location, Properties NW purchased the brick
Tudor house two doors down that their office now calls home. “We spent months
renovating the house with the goal of creating an inspired, warm and inviting place
that will make all those who walk through our door feel right at home with us,”

At Properties NW, the dedicated and experienced team of
11 brokers and three staff members has carefully cultivated
a work environment and culture where they all can succeed
and feel supported by one another. In addition, as a family
owned business, they are family oriented and family friendly.
“It’s not unusual to see ‘assistants’ come along to the office
when school’s out, and we hold events throughout the year,
like pictures with Santa and our Mother’s Day art event for
our community,” Patrick says.
He credits their loyal clients for allowing the business
to thrive and grow over the years, putting their trust in
Properties NW and believing that what the company has to
offer is unique and adds value to the community.
“I’m grateful to my dad, who took a chance and started this
whole thing 36 years ago; to all the brokers and staff that have
worked here over the years—each of them is responsible in
some way for our longevity and success; to all our past and
present clients that gave us an opportunity; and to my wife
Haeji, because she picked me. Without her I wouldn’t be
where I am today.”
At the end of the day, when it comes to what Patrick finds
most rewarding about the work he does, he says it’s running
into past clients in the community, shaking hands, giving
them a hug and reminiscing about the experience of working
together. “There are so many people out there that I’ve had
the privilege to get to know and work with. I wish I had more
time to catch up with all of them and say ‘hi.’”
If you are in the market to buy or sell, Patrick and the rest
of the Properties NW team have the knowledge, experience
and dedication to guide you in your real estate venture.

DUTIES OF THE COAST GUARD GO BEYOND PARTY PATROLS.
BOATER SAFETY REMAINS TOP PRIORITY TO OVERLOOKED
BRANCH OF THE MILITARY
BY DAN AZNOFF | PHOTOS COURTESY OF DEFENSE VISUAL
INFORMATION DISTRIBUTION SERVICE
The orange-striped ships with sailors from the U.S. Coast Guard that patrol the waters of Washington, Oregon and
Idaho are responsible for more than checking registrations and policing loud parties.
District 13 of the Coast Guard has authority over commercial fishing regulations, enforcing environmental
regulations and protecting inland waters. But their primary mission is to protect the Pacific coastline from attack from
hostile forces from the border of California to the straights of Juan de Fuca in Northwest Washington.
“District 13, based in Seattle, covers a vast range of commercial and recreational boating responsibilities,” said Petty Officer
Third Class Trevor Lilburn, who is stationed at the Coast Guard base on Alaskan Way in Seattle.
“The Seattle base alone is responsible for monitoring the Port of Seattle, the third largest domestic port in the country,”
he said proudly. “That includes the Washington state ferry system, which transports 24 million passengers and 11 million
vehicles across 10 routes every year.”
The 3,000 sailors assigned to the Seattle-based Coast Guard station are also responsible for the nation’s third largest cruise
ship terminal, the nation’s largest grain export terminal and the multitude of commerce that relies on the Columbia River
to reach international destinations.

As the often-overlooked branch of the U.S. military, the Coast Guard
staffs three bases built originally to protect the Pacific Coastline. In
addition to the one on the Seattle waterfront, Coast Guard bases are
located in Bellingham near the Canadian border and in the Oregon
town of North Bend.
An inland facility on the Columbia near Kennewick is responsible
for safety on the vast number of lakes that draw thousands of
recreational boaters with varying degrees of compliance at the helm
of their vessel.
“There are times it feels like we are policing a college dorm during
frat rush week,” said one officer assigned to the Clover Island base

in protecting boaters took place last year when the branch of the
Coast Guard was called on to assist the Kootenai County Sheriff ’s
office with monitoring boaters at Lake Coeur d’Alene over one of the
busiest weekends of the year.

helicopters to conduct a technical rope rescue for a hiker who had

The Coast Guard is America’s maritime first responder
As one of the country’s five armed services, the Coast Guard has a unique agency that can trace its history to
August 4, 1790, when the first Congress authorized the construction of 10 vessels to enforce tariff and trade
laws as well as to prevent smuggling.
Known variously through the 19th and early 20th centuries as the Revenue Marine and the Revenue Cutter
Service, the Coast Guard expanded in size and responsibilities as the nation grew.
The Coast Guard established its presence in the Pacific Northwest with the construction and operation of
16 lighthouses along the coast built between 1852 and 1858. The responsibilities of the Coast Guard in the
Northwest expanded in 1854 when the revenue cutter Jefferson Davis was assigned to prevent late-night
shipping of homemade alcohol from remote ports around the Puget Sound.
District 13 covers the coastal waterways and inland lakes of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. The
sailors and officers have 21 cutters, 132 boats and 11 aircraft based throughout the region to complete their

Many of those pieces of specialty equipment were used in February of 2018 when Coast Guard
crews were dispatched to rescue five members of an 87-foot fishing vessel who were forced to
abandon ship when it was engulfed by flames south of Neah Bay.
Crews aboard the Coast Guard cutters Cuttyhunk and Swordfish, an MH-65 dolphin helicopter
from Coast Guard Air Station/Sector Field Office Port
Angeles and motor lifeboats from Station Quillayute River
and Station Neah Bay responded to the emergency.
According to a statement released by the Coast Guard, the
pumps on the 87-foot Sunnfjord had failed to keep up with
the rising water.
“While responders were in route, the fishermen reported
they had their survival suits on, life jackets, that captain
put his cell phone in a plastic bag to help keep it dry as
they were experiencing issues with their handheld radio,
and the water had risen in the engine room to above the
floor boards,” the release stated.
The rescued fishermen were transported to Coast Guard

The Sunnfjord sank approximately 6 miles offshore in
about 300 feet of water. The vessel still had 800 gallons

Rescue crews from the Coast Guard were stretched thin
last June when they performed two rescue operations in
the same day off the coast of Oregon. In one incident, a
Coast Guard helicopter crew hoisted an injured 26-year old
Ukrainian man who reportedly suffered from spasms from a
boat 72 miles off the coast. The man had reportedly suffered
lacerations two days earlier and had not had his tetanus shot.
The second rescue took place when a Coast Guard helicopter
was called in to save a hiker from a ledge in Humbug State
Park when officials determined there was no access to safely
remove him by land.
Not all the Coast Guard rescues are equally dramatic. Last
summer, Coast Guard sailors were called in by a Washington
state ferry when a man fell off his 39-foot boat near the Elliott
Bay Marina in Seattle. The man was reportedly wearing a life
jacket and communicated with rescue crews with a handheld
radio he kept above the water until he was pulled onto a
25-foot response boat.
Some rescues do not even include people. In July of 2018, the
Coast Guard was called in to investigate a 48-foot sailboat
that was adrift near Greys Harbor.
The crew of the Coast Guard cutter Barracuda discovered the
sailboat more than 440 miles southeast of its last reported
position. After an inspection of the vessel’s seaworthiness, it
was towed to Coast Guard Station Fort Bragg.
The owners were reportedly sailing from Hawaii to
Bellingham when a storm rendered their vessel disabled and
tore their main sail. The couple activated their emergency
position indicating radio beacon, and a helicopter crew from
Coast Guard Sector Columbia River in Astoria responded
and rescued them.
“The vessel was not under power and was completely at the
mercy of the sea,” said Chief Warrant Officer Chris Ramp, the
Sector Humboldt Bay command center chief. “The owners
probably never thought they’d see it again.”
The active Coast Guard personnel are not the only ones with
eyes on the coastline or the inland waters of the Northwest.
There is also an active contingent of Coast Guard Auxiliary
on duty to assist with educational programs and public safety.
Thomas Bliss, the Flotilla Commander for the auxiliary
in Seattle, explained that the Coast Guard Auxiliary has
been active for more than 79 years to provide navigational
assistance and be watchful for polluters.
The Washington state auxiliary provides support to active
duty personnel at events like SeaFair and at festivals and
celebrations all summer across the state.
“We do not have punitive authority,” said Bliss. “Our job is
to steer owners in the right direction so they have the proper
safety equipment aboard before they are caught in a situation
when it’s too late.”
With a smile, Bliss said auxiliary members try to teach
lessons in basic “boating etiquette.”
More than 20 members of the auxiliary are available to support

The Coast Guard has one other duty in Eastern Washington.
That is keeping recreational boaters a safe distance from the
clandestine submarine testing that goes on at Lake Pend Oreille

The site was chosen because of the lake’s unique combination of

the deepest lakes in the country. Depths in some portions of the
pristine lake reach 1,150 feet deep.

Q. Klara, your role in the Studio Arts Intensive is
so unique for you carefully ‘curate’ the incredible
roster of artists and curators, as well as visits to
galleries, and exhibitions in local museums. You
literally see the SAI students transformed through
the program from passive makers to artists actively
engaged in ‘why’ they are making.
A. Many students go to an art school such as Gage
because they want to build and hone their skills
and technique … but the unique thing about this
program is that from day one we start talking
about developing their own ideas and interests. The
question of ‘why’ they want to make the kind of art
they want to make is less about finding a specific
answer; it is more about developing the awareness
that they should be asking that question themselves.
It is about tuning into their own motivations and
desires, following those leads and applying the tools
they are learning to their unique voice and vision
… You can see why SAI is an amazing opportunity.
Q. How do you guide the students to become
individual thinkers, making a body of work over a
long period of time—not just classroom exercises
that teach technique and skill?
A. I start the year with a simple prompt and an
assignment. From then on students are allowed
to change one parameter (media, format, subject
matter, etc.) each week according to their choice,
but only one at the time. So even though they all
start with the same assignment, by the end of the
year students arrive at very different outcomes …
As a group we do a lot of looking at the individual
works and have engaged conversation about what is
happening for each student—that way they can also
learn from each other. The cohort dynamic is a very
important part of this program.
Q. How is Studio Arts Intensive unique within
Gage learning community as well as other courses
of studies available out there?
A. In addition to working in the classroom, we go
visit artist studios, meet curators and visit galleries
and exhibitions. I usually schedule studio visits with
artists who are working in very different ways. The
variety drives home the point that each art practice
is unique and equally valid.
THE PROGRAM INCLUDES OVER 400
DIRECT CONTACT HOURS WITH 10
INSTRUCTORS IN DIFFERENT MEDIUMS
AND COURSES OF STUDY, AND INCLUDES
APPROXIMATELY 200 HOURS WORKING
FROM THE LIVE MODEL.

about the structure of the image—breaking it down to
shapes, colors, layers, textures—and on the other hand it

Enjoy a Foodie Getaway
IT’S CRAVE! TIME.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF VISIT SPOKANE, AARON THEISEN
AND DOYLE WHEELER
Visionary chefs from around the Pacific Northwest will be converging on the City of Spokane
Valley for the annual Crave! Food and Drink Celebration July 11 through 13, 2019. With all
this culinary talent in the area, it makes the perfect time for a foodie trip. Spokane is building
a reputation as a food lovers’ paradise, and it is an exciting time to experience it. From older
family loved restaurants to new and innovative places, there is something to love for everyone.
Whether you are coming from a short distance away—can you say staycation?—or driving from further
afield, plan to make your base at Spokane’s grand dame, the Historic Davenport Hotel. This lovingly restored
gem is just beautiful. It is a food and wine destination on its own with its renowned Sunday Brunch and two
wine tasting rooms on-site. Book a Brunch package or a Sip and Stay package, which are perfect options for
food and wine lovers. Insider Tip: Make sure to have a cocktail at the Peacock Room Lounge with happy
hour every day (even on weekends). It has a jazz-age vibe and a stunning 5,000-piece stained glass Peacock.

life on the water.
This three-day festival of all things food and drink is a foodie’s Disney World.
Not only will you enjoy culinary treats but you will help the less fortunate with
both 2nd Harvest Foods and Wishing Star, this year’s beneficiaries. The 2019
lineup includes over 40 chefs and is at the Spokane Valley CenterPlace Regional
Event Center. There are a variety of options for tickets. You can purchase for just
one event or splurge for the whole weekend. Kicking the event off on Thursday,
July 11, is a Seafood Bash. The Grand Tasting takes place Saturday, July 13, from
noon to 4pm. You don’t want to miss this one with over 70 participants with
food, wineries, artisans, craft breweries, cider makers and distillers. Visit Walla
Walla will anchor the event.
The Cork District
The Cork District in Spokane is one of the most convenient areas in Washington
to taste wine with tasting rooms from wineries across the state. From the Historic
Davenport Hotel, just take the elevator downstairs to two tasting rooms on-site,
Arbor Crest and Va Piano. Just a short walk away is Helix Wines, which are just
outstanding. Also make sure to stop in Terra Blanca for a truly stunning tasting
room, which is in the old Chronicle (a newspaper) building. It is a rather unique
experience and a little more hopping than most tasting rooms as many of the
residents in the apartments above the tasting room are wine club members. It
offers a fun vibe, and the younger crowd is a great source for local favorites for
restaurants and entertainment.
The food scene in Spokane has just blossomed in the past 10 years. James Beard
Chef semifinalist Adam Hegsted is the creative visionary behind Crave! and
serves as the culinary director for the event. His restaurants, under the Eat Good
Group, are also culinary destinations while in town. Another James Beard Chef
semifinalist is Jeremy Hansen and Top Chef contestant Chad White, who both
own restaurants in the area. There are some great eateries in the Downtown
Entertainment District. Cochinito Taqueria is an interesting take on a taco
shop. All the ingredients are responsibly sourced and then paired with craft
cocktails and a curated beer and wine list. There are also some of the old places
still around. Luigi’s Italian Restaurant has been around for more than 30 years
and is consistently voted Best Italian Restaurant in Spokane, great service and
food in a historic building.
Sunday Brunch at the Historic Davenport Hotel is an epic gastronomic
experience. The lavish buffet is served in one of the hotel’s legendary ballrooms.
The extravaganza of food includes buffets of seafood, salads, specialty items and
carved meats like prime rib. House-made desserts and a towering chocolate
fountain will satisfy any sweet tooth. Champagne and mimosas are included or,
for an additional charge, take a trip to the Bloody Mary Bar.
Things to Do
Head out to the Bluff. Just 15 minutes north of Spokane you’ll find more than
35 farms, which are part of the Green Bluff Growers. Endless fields of green

Spokane Falls. The falls are so thunderous you’ll hear them before you see them.
Roaring through downtown, the Spokane River has carved its way into a river

Pay attention to which local restaurants are participating. Plan your other meals

festival. There are such a variety of great places to eat you want to hit as many as
you can. The Visit Spokane website is a good source of information on the area.
