A REASON TO

As we observe the Fourth of July, let us sit

back and reflect on how fortunate we are

to live in a country where we are free to

express religious beliefs and are blessed

with an abundance of opportunities.

Offer prayers of gratitude for the blessings

we have and for those first responders

THE LOWDOWN ON CABINETRY

BY NIKKI LUTTMANN, SEVEN BEE INTERIORS | FOR SANDPOINT FURNITURE, CARPET ONE AND SELKIRK GLASS AND CABINETS

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 house.

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 this process.

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.

Not only does it have to be functional,

but it needs to be beautiful.

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 laborintensive

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!

If you’ve graduated from college in the

past year or so and started your first

job, you’re no doubt learning a lot about

establishing yourself as an adult and being

responsible for your own finances. So thoughts

of your retirement are probably far away. And

yet you have several good reasons to invest in

your 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored

retirement plan.

First of all, by contributing to your 401(k), you

can get into the habit of regular investing. And

since you invest in your 401(k) through regular

payroll deductions, it’s an easy way to invest.

Furthermore, your 401(k) or similar plan is

an excellent retirement-savings vehicle. You

generally contribute pre-tax dollars to your

401(k), so the more you put in, the lower your

taxable income. Plus, your earnings can grow

on a tax-deferred basis. Your employer might

also offer a Roth 401(k), which is funded with

after-tax dollars; although you can’t deduct

your contributions, your earnings can grow

tax-free, provided you meet certain conditions.

And with either a traditional or Roth 401(k),

you generally have a wide array of investment

options.

But perhaps the main reason to start investing

right away in your 401(k) is that, at this point

of your life, you have access to the greatest and

most irreplaceable asset of all—time. The more

time you have on your side, the greater the

growth potential for your investments. And by

starting to invest early in your plan, you can

put in smaller amounts without having to play

catch-up later.

Suppose, for example, you begin investing in

your 401(k) or similar plan when you’re 25. For

the sake of simplicity, let’s say you put in $100

a month, and you keep investing that same

amount for 40 years, earning a hypothetical 7

percent rate of return. When you reach 65, you

will have accumulated about $256,000. (Your

withdrawals will then be taxable, unless you

chose the Roth 401(k) option.) But if you waited

until you were 45 before you started investing

in your 401(k), again earning that hypothetical

7 percent, you’d have to put in almost $500 per

month—about five times the monthly amount

you could have invested when you were 25—to

arrive at the same $256,000 when you turn 65.

Clearly, the expression “time is money” applies

when it comes to funding your 401(k)—there’s

just no benefit in waiting to contribute to your

retirement plan. This isn’t to say that you have a

lot of disposable income, especially as you may

be paying off thousands of dollars in student

loans. But, as mentioned above, the money

for your 401(k) is taken before you even see

it, so, in a sense, you won’t miss it. And you

can certainly start out with small amounts,

though you’ll at least want to put in enough to

earn your employer’s matching contribution, if

one is offered. As your career progresses and

your salary goes up, you can steadily increase

the amount you put into your 401(k) or other

retirement plan.

When retirement is decades away, it can

seem like more of an abstract concept than

something that will one day define your reality.

But, as we’ve seen, you have plenty of incentives

to contribute to your 401(k) or similar plan—

so, if you haven’t already done so, get started

soon.

SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND

Then to Be Understood

FIREPLACES

FIRE PLACES

HEATING

A FAMILY OWNED BUSINESS

WHERE A HANDSHAKE

Seals the Deal

There’s a hard way and an easy way

to do everything. The hard way is

by yourself. The easy way is with

another person who’s aligned on

achieving the same goals or outcomes.

Recall a time when you partnered with

another person and you found it easier to

accomplish what you set out to do. What did

you like about that experience? Were you

more creative? Was the experience quicker or

easier? Did you have more fun? How would

you describe it?

We’ve all had positive experiences partnering

with others; nevertheless, it’s far too common

to hear, “If you want something done right,

you’ve got to do it yourself.”

Which is easier? Partnering with others or

doing it yourself? Perhaps a more interesting

question is, “What’s present when people are

partnering effectively?” It’s a collaboration

question, and every successful leader asks this

question in some form.

Whether you’re leading your teenager to

make effective choices as a family member,

leading your boss to effectively communicate

deadlines or leading your organization to

make its dent in the world, your ability to

partner effectively is directly related to your

ability to influence those around you.

When I work with clients, I focus on six

principles of influence. In this article, we’ll

look at one of those:

Seek first to understand. Then to be

understood. In other words, listen for “What’s

in it for me?” People do things for their

own reasons. We may think we know what

motivates another person, but until we listen,

with the intent of understanding, we’re only

guessing.

Karl Menninger, a pioneering psychiatrist,

said, “Listening is a magnetic and strange

thing, a creative force. The friends who listen

to us are the ones we move toward, and

we want to sit in their radius. When we are

listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and

expand.”

Active listening, being fully present for another

person, is regarded as one of the highest forms

of giving. Stephen Covey encourages listening

with the intent to understand. Through active

listening, we gain awareness, generate more

options and provide a foundation upon which

to build our relationships. We demonstrate

that we value the other person.

Consider the people in your life who’ve

listened to you and shown that they genuinely

care about you. They not only listened to

the content of what you had to say, but they

understood your feelings. They observed you

rather than judged you. You felt valued, and

you probably ended up valuing their opinion,

and you continued to seek them out.

When you seek first to understand, you’re

putting attention on the other person.

Contrast that to seeking to be understood,

which puts your attention on you. The

dynamic has now shifted and your influence

is diminished. Seeking first to understand

engages the magnetic power of listening

and builds the relationship. It enhances your

influence—both in the relationship and with

the results you create.

We’ve come full circle. There’s a hard way and

an easy way to do everything. The hard way

is by yourself. The easy way is with another

person who’s aligned on achieving the same

goals or outcome.

COUNTRY GIRL

(BPT) - THE HEAT IS HERE, SO NOW’S

THE TIME FOR A COOL SUMMER ROAD

TRIP. Whether you’re going with friends or

family, near or far, there’s nothing like hitting

the road for an epic summer trip. National

parks, the coast, big cities, Main Street USA and

fun/silly tourist destinations are all waiting. The

road is yours.

Once you’ve scoured the map and picked your

perfect trip, take some time to make sure you’re

prepared.

Here are some quick tips to help ensure a

smooth journey:

• Plan ahead, but don’t be afraid to be

spontaneous and go off the beaten path.

• Download road-friendly apps like Waze and

Gas Buddy.

• Check weather sites to see what your driving

conditions will be.

• Fill a cooler with drinks and bring lots of

snacks.

• Brush up on road trip games: Create fun

memories by keeping everyone in the car

engaged.

• Put your phone/tablet on double-duty: Use its

camera to capture pictures of the trip and load

up some movies, music or games.

• Try local eateries as opposed to chain

restaurants.

• Bring a first-aid kit, just in case.

MAKE IT Memorable

TIPS FOR AN EPIC SUMMER ROAD TRIP

• Take turns driving so everyone stays alert.

• Make sure your vehicle is in road-worthy

shape: Check the oil and all fluids, battery,

spark plugs, air filter and tires—especially the

tires.

“Definitely check your tires, especially if you’re

CDALivingLocal.com

heading out on a summer road trip,” says

Alan Holtschneider, director of marketing for

Yokohama Tire. “They influence the braking,

steering, comfort, handling, safety and fuel

efficiency. Remember, they are also the only

parts of the vehicle that actually touch the road.”

Holtschneider said whether your summer

journey takes you to Disney World or the Grand

Canyon, it’s important to have the right tires for

the trip. “For example, if you have a luxury SUV

or crossover, a tire like the Geolandar X-CV

fits the bill. It’s long-lasting, provides strong

traction, smooth handling and has a hush-quiet

ride—perfect for cruising in style.”

Even after your summer road trip,

Holtschneider strongly suggests keeping your

tires properly maintained year-round.

Try these tire safety tips:

• Check tire pressure at least once a month. This

takes about five minutes. Refer to the vehicle’s

owner’s manual or placard on the driver’s door

to determine proper tire pressure. Tire pressure

should be checked when the tires are cold.

• Check your tread depth by placing a penny

upside down into a tread groove. If you can see

all of Lincoln’s head, your tire’s tread has worn

down to the legal limit and you need to buy a

new tire.

• Tires should be replaced when the tread is

worn down to 2/32 of an inch, the lowest legal

limit. It’s best to replace them before they reach

2/32 for optimal performance, especially in bad

weather.

Now you’re ready to roll.

WHAT A

WEEKEND

Street Fair & Art on the

Green take over town

By Colin Anderson

Photo by Whitney Lebsock

While they are two separate events hosted by two separate

community groups, it’s sometimes hard to see where

one festival ends and the other begins.

The first weekend in August is one of the most

celebrated in Coeur d’Alene as it brings hundreds

of artists, vendors, musicians and eager onlookers

together for a fun summer weekend.

The Citizens Council for the Arts presents Art on

the Green, now in its 51st year, on the grounds

of North Idaho College. Painters, craftsmen,

sculptors, photographers and others come from

all over the West to show off their work. You can

easily stroll from booth to booth and find an array

of statement pieces for your home, yard, office

or living room. There is free entertainment all

weekend long, plenty of food, a Children’s Art Garden where kids

can create their own masterpiece, and a beer garden featuring local

craft beers and ciders.

YOU CAN EASILY STROLL

FROM BOOTH TO BOOTH

AND FIND AN ARRAY OF

STATEMENT PIECES FOR

YOUR HOME, YARD, OFFICE OR

LIVING ROOM.

For even more options you can take a short stroll or free shuttle

bus ride over to Sherman Avenue for the Downtown Coeur

d’Alene Street Fair, put on by the Coeur d’Alene

Downtown Alliance. Sherman is closed to

vehicles and instead lined with hundreds more

booths offering an assortment of goods for sale

including more works of art, gifts, crafts, specialty

foods and spices, and much more.

Both events take place Friday, August 2 through

Sunday, August 4. The downtown fair opens at

10am each morning and runs until 8pm Friday

and Saturday and 5pm Sunday. Art on the Green

is open noon on Friday and 10am on Saturday

and Sunday. It remains open until 10pm Friday

and Saturday and 5pm on Sunday.

With hundreds of booths to visit, you might not see them all, but

you are sure to find something fun, unique, local or, at the very least,

tasty during this one-of-a-kind weekend.

Breakfast With Dan

COMMUNITY KEEPS THE TAB REPLENISHED

BY COLIN ANDERSON

PHOTOS BY KEITH BOE

“Word around

the restaurant

began to spread

and more visitors

or semi-regulars

wanted to buy

Dan’s breakfast

as a thank you

for his service.

Soon, instead of

someone picking

up a check, a tab

was started.”

When the Dueling Irons restaurant opened

its doors in 2014, it wasn’t long before Dan

Rankin started showing up each day. He

had been having his daily breakfast elsewhere until

there was an unexpected breakup in his daily routine.

“They let my favorite waitress go, or she quit, anyway, I

followed her over here,” recalled Dan.

That waitress is Sami, and each morning she or another

server at the Post Falls restaurant brings Dan a plate

of sausage, hash browns, eggs and toast, an order that

rarely ever changes. “I just lift my finger up in the air

and they know,” smiled Dan.

Owner Thomas Didra sees a lot of veterans, retired

law enforcement and other emergency responders

come through his door. Vets will often be wearing a

hat signifying their branch or service, or if they served

in Korea, Vietnam or Desert Storm. Dan Rankin is a

veteran and dons a cap that goes back further than

most.

Now 95, Dan served under famous American General

George Patton in the 13th Army Division. His job, as

he put it, was to repair tanks that were shot up by the

Germans. “Sometimes they had too many hits so they

became the parts department,” he said.

It’s not difficult to spot the World War II veteran

parked at his usual booth. Regulars and travelers along

I-90 take notice of the hat and often pause to say hello

and thank Dan for his service to the country. About

three years back, a few people also offered to pay for

his breakfast, setting off a chain of generosity that

continues each and every day.

“At first we kept it pretty small. A few of the regulars

would donate the cost of a couple meals,” said Didra.

Word around the restaurant began to spread and

more visitors or semi-regulars wanted to buy Dan’s

breakfast as a thank you for his service. Soon, instead

of someone picking up a check, a tab was started. This

past April, local food enthusiast Keith Boe posted on

social media that he finally had the chance to cover

Dan’s breakfast, and as thousands of his followers saw

the post, Dan’s story exploded.

“We’ve gotten calls and letters from all over the U.S.,

up and down the East Coast, Canada, even Australia,”

said Didra.

The breakfast story has been highlighted in local papers and magazines,

TV news, and has even gone so far as to be featured on NBC’s “Today

Show” and recently an article in People magazine. “It’s truly amazing to

see the power of that little post,” said Didra.

It’s now pretty much a daily occurrence for Dan to meet someone

stopping by Dueling Irons having read about his story somewhere online.

An organization from New Jersey recently sent him a letter thanking him

for his service and offering to buy his breakfast, and a woman drove from

Montana just to meet Dan and add to the tab. For the 95-year-old, the

sudden, unexpected fame is a bit shocking.

“I don’t know who started it. There’s nothing abnormal about me other

than I survived the invasion of France,” said Dan.

Didra and his staff keep track of the donations that roll in via check or

cash. Most donations cover a single breakfast, around $10. As it currently

stands, it would be several months before Dan would need to reach for

his wallet, and they don’t see that ever becoming an issue. “We just love

having him here and are extremely grateful for the support and show of

community, and it’s amazing to be a part of,” said Didra.

Dan is just six years into retirement after finally auctioning off his

trucking business and shop at the age of 89. After breakfast he usually

returns home to watch TV and spend some time with his little dog. He

has outlived most of his family with only a few nieces and nephews living

in the area. If he needs help around the house, his nephew can still help

him out. It’s at Dueling Irons, however, where Dan has adopted a whole

new family that cares deeply about him.

“Restaurant folks have become like family,” he said.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, less than half a

million of the 16 million veterans who served during World War II were

alive in 2018. Meeting with someone who lived through one of the greatest

conflicts in human history is becoming rarer each day; something Didra

believes is helping drive the donations but also brings Dan some renewed

feelings of joy.

“I think he’s enjoyed it thoroughly (the sudden fame). A lot of people

don’t think about World War II as much anymore. The ‘thank yous’ are

a big deal, and I think he really likes getting to tell his story,” Didra said.

In a time when people seem to be at complete odds with one another, the

generosity toward Dan is something that has truly resonated across the

Post Falls community and the nation.

“With the current climate of today, seeing a nice story about someone

who did a great service for our country is a really big draw for people, and

it’s a really nice thing to see,” said Didra.

Dueling Irons is always accepting donations toward Dan’s breakfast tab.

You can give the restaurant a call or just stop by with whatever you’d like

to give. If you’re lucky, you’ll see Dan sitting in his favorite booth, having

the usual.

““WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT CELEBRATES

KEEPING OUR NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE

AT ALL TIMES, AND IT’S SO NECESSARY

TO TAKE TIME FOR OURSELVES TO GET A

MASSAGE OR FACIAL AND JUST TAKE CARE

OF OURSELVES PERIOD!”

LOCATED ON THE BEAUTIFUL HIGHLANDS GOLF COURSE ATOP

THE HIGHLANDS BENCH, surrounded by serene gardens and lawn,

Highland’s Day Spa is Post Falls’ first and finest full-service day spa offering

guests 14,000 square feet of pleasure and relaxation for body, mind and spirit.

Opened in 2002 by Jeane Plastino-Wood, current owner Emily Hildebrand

purchased the premier spa in 2017, which features a full range of health and

beauty treatments—from massages to facials to hair and nail services and

access to a steam sauna—that help create a refreshing retreat from guests’

daily routines. They even offer spa parties to celebrate that special event!

“I love the clients that come in and haven’t experienced a massage or spa

treatment before. Getting to be the spa that brings them into this amazing

lifestyle of spa treatments is a huge privilege,” says Emily. “Not only is it just a

fun and new experience, it’s an important step to self-care!”

From a young age, Emily had known she wanted to one day own her own

business. While attending college to earn a degree in business, an opportunity

presented itself. “The spa business honestly happened by accident,” she

CDALivingLocal.com

says. “I was working the front desk at Highlands Day Spa … and the

opportunity for purchase sort of fell into my lap, and I knew instantly I

wanted to take it!”

At Highlands Day Spa, you will find an experienced, friendly and

dedicated staff that strives to make each client’s experience memorable.

“My employees continually give amazing services to our clients and

always have the dedication to make each client’s experience as perfect as

it can possibly be! Everyone from front-desk receptionists to the service

technicians to the behind-the-scenes maintenance and laundry all takes

part in the success of Highlands,” smiles Emily.

In addition, value is another important aspect of the business. At

Highlands Day Spa, clients are greeted with “down to earth” staff with

friendly personalities, and their services have been reasonably priced to

allow everyone to experience the gift of relaxation and spa treatment.

Their steam sauna sets them apart as well, and it’s included with all facial

and massage prices.

“We live in a society that celebrates keeping our nose to the grindstone at

all times, and it’s so necessary to take time for ourselves to get a massage

or facial and just take care of ourselves period!” Emily says. “I love being

the spa that often gets to help with this necessary human care first.”

Emily is truly grateful for the success she’s seen since taking ownership of

Highlands Day Spa just two years ago, and she credits Jeane, her family

and friends, and her incredible employees, all whom have helped her get

to where she is today as a proud business owner.

Emily moved to the Coeur d’Alene area when she was less than 1 year

old and feels blessed to live in such a beautiful community. “I haven’t

considered another area to ever be home. Coeur d’Alene is such an

amazing ‘home base’ to come home to after traveling. We have everything

here from city life to wilderness, and everywhere else I’ve been has just

been ‘nice to visit.’”

If you’ve never experienced Highlands Day Spa in Post Falls, or you’ve

realized it’s been a while, what are you waiting for? There’s no time like

the present to take time for yourself to escape, relax and indulge. A

fabulous spa experience awaits.

SUMMER GOLF TUNE-UP

Proper equipment key to having more fun

By Colin Anderson

YOUR VACATION RENTAL

HOME IS BEAUTIFUL

LET’S KEEP IT THAT WAY

coeurdalenevacationhomes.com

steve@like-media.com / 208.946.0901

jackson@like-media.com / 208.610.4416

As we get deeper into summer,

the temperatures steadily rise—

and for golfers that means

an earlier start. Morning tee

times are swooped up fast as

everyone tries to avoid getting stuck on the

course as the temperatures soar into the 90s.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to play as

much this year, there are still a few things you

can do to improve your game and have more

fun on the golf course.

“We’re really spoiled here as there are a ton

of great pros in the area who can educate

you on your swing and take a look at your

equipment,” said Randall Henry, general

manager of Henry-Griffitts Custom Clubs in

Coeur d’Alene.

The less frequent we play, the more we tend

to develop bad habits. Local golf pros are

able to identify those bad habits and get

them corrected to help you play better. It also

might be time to really have your equipment

analyzed. “People tend to wait to get customfit

clubs, and really it’s the opposite,” said

Henry. “If your clubs don’t fit you right from

the start, you develop poor habits and swing

mechanics.”

Henry-Griffitts is a pioneer in the custom

club-fitting industry and has been fitting

weekend warriors and professionals for more

than 30 years. Many custom clubs on the

market are only customized to someone’s

height, whereas Henry-Griffitts analyzes

many factors including height, swing speed,

flexibility in the shaft, loft angle and more.

With properly fitted clubs, golfers tend to

hit the ball further and, more importantly,

straighter.

Custom-fit clubs are an investment and will

typically cost more than a set off the sporting

goods floor. “I always tell people they are

probably better off with a few clubs that fit

you right than a full set that isn’t fit right for

you,” said Henry. “Golf is about having fun

and, unfortunately, bad equipment can have a

major negative impact on your game.”

Even if you’re not in the market for a set of

custom clubs, Henry-Griffitts can handle

repairs, re-gripping, replacement shafts and

more on just about every brand out there.

The company can be found on Sherman

Avenue right next to Moon Time restaurant

east of downtown Coeur d’Alene. Improving

your game might be as simple as analyzing

or repairing your current

clubs.

Golf is a game that no

one will ever conquer,

but with a little instruction and the proper

equipment you will see an improvement in

your game at any level. “Seek out a pro that

really cares about making you better, and take

advantage of all our pros’ local knowledge,”

said Henry.

OUT OF THE BIRDS'

SHADOW

SAGLE MUSEUM MAKES MOVE SOUTH

STORY & PHOTOS BY DAN THOMPSON

As she pointed out inventions, airplanes and photos spanning

more than a century of United States history, Rachel Riddle

Schwam found herself apologizing for mixing up the dates

on a few displays at the new location of the Bird Aviation

Museum and Invention Center.

The double-checking was understandable. There are a lot of dates for her

to keep track of. Some items go back at least 150 years.

“You’ve got old airplanes, new airplanes, antique inventions to modern

day inventions,” Schwam said the morning before the museum’s June 1

opening at the Coeur d’Alene Airport. “It’s a big learning environment of

the history of the United States, so it’s a pretty awesome place.”

For nearly 12 years the Bird Museum called Sagle, Idaho, home. But now

that home is at the end of West Cessna Avenue, in a large blue hangar

with a door that opens to the airport tarmac. It is a fitting location for a

museum with almost a dozen airplanes and a collection that celebrates,

among other things, the history of flight in the United States.

At its previous home, up a curving road Schwam compared to the road

up to Schweitzer Resort, the Bird Museum drew anywhere from 7,000 to

13,000 visitors annually. But it wasn’t open year-round, and it was a twohour

drive from Spokane.

With that drive cut in half, Schwam hopes more school groups and other

visitors can more easily make their way to the free museum that was

founded by her stepfather, Dr. Forrest Bird, who died at age 94 in 2015,

two months before Pamela Riddle Bird, Rachel’s mother, died in a plane

accident.

“It was mixed emotions,” Schwam said of the move. “I wanted to be able

to continue what they started, but at the same time I knew space-wise we

were condensing a little bit. But we’ve created displays that keep the same

visual appearance and atmosphere of what it was (in Sagle).”

The main space in the new museum houses exhibits of all sorts. There is

THE MUSEUM FIRST OPENED IN SAGLE IN 2007,

BUT IN 2018 SCHWAM STARTED PLANNING

THE MOVE SOUTH. BY LAST JANUARY, SHE HAD

a corner devoted to World War II, and around the wall is a collection of

photos and items highlighting the contributions of women in the history

of flight. Adjacent to that is an area about space exploration, including

a 15:1 model of the Hubble Telescope, and a framed Sandpoint, Idaho,

T-shirt that went to space on the back of astronaut John Phillips.

The planes are in the center, flanked on one side by cases of model

airplanes and on the other by dozens of artificial respirators, which

Forrest Bird invented half a century ago. That includes the Bird Universal

Medical Respirator he invented in 1958 and other smaller respirators he

developed as well. For his work in that field, he was inducted into the

National Inventors Hall of Fame in 1995.

through the 2000s: the inventors of cultural icons like Cabbage Patch

Kids, Gatorade and Barbie, to that of telegraphs, ice resurfacers and fiberoptic

cables.

The variety of inventions is purposeful and is geared toward one of the

museum’s goals, which Schwam said is “to inspire youth and get them

interested in math and science and aviation, and think outside the box

and become future inventors.”

Bird was a lifelong pilot and served with the U.S. Army Air Corps in

World War II. In 1946 he invented the first Positive Pressure Inhalation

Device, which helped pilots breathe better at higher altitudes.

High on the walls hang flags from countries around the world—some

of which are no longer independent countries—that Forrest Bird would

have hung up when he hosted international visitors to teach them about

his respirators. He was careful to represent any guest’s home nation,

Schwam said, by displaying its flag.

The museum first opened in Sagle in 2007, but in 2018 Schwam started

planning the move south. By last January, she had secured a new space,

so she oriented her large team of volunteers toward the job of relocating.

That meant planes needed to be flown or shuttled and many one-of-akind

artifacts needed to be packed up and brought down Highway 95.

Even the floor—a series of black, plastic, mesh-like panels—needed to be

taken apart and snapped back together.

All that movement happened between April 15 and June 1, when

the museum officially reopened. Schwam said she plans to have a

grander opening sometime in August or September.

“Everything you see here has been done by an amazing team

of family, friends and volunteers,” Schwam said. “We had sent

a couple memos out for help, and we got help when we asked

for it. … Our new museum hangar neighbors have offered their

help. Everybody has been very welcoming.”

Not everything from the previous site fit in this new one, but

Schwam plans to rotate in items so that the entire collection gets

displayed over time. Many of the items were either donated or

are on loan.

Among the benefits of being in the new space, Schwam said, is

that the museum can now keep regular hours. It will be open

year-round Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 3pm, a sixhour

window she hopes will draw student groups. Already she

has a number of groups booked for the fall.

The location is also easier for the airplanes on display, which can

be flown in and better maintained at an airport.

“Sandpoint is a great aviation community, and Coeur d’Alene is

as well,” Schwam said.

The museum does not charge an entrance fee, though it does

request donations. It relies on those donations as well as the

income from hosting private events. In the past it has hosted

alumni events for local schools and universities, as well as at least

one fly-in wedding. Those are opportunities Schwam said she’ll

continue to pursue.

The move is bittersweet, Schwam said. Having lived in Sandpoint

for 18 years, she said it was difficult to leave.

“One thing (my mother) always told me was to follow my own

dreams and my own passions, and somebody said to me the

other day that I’m coming out from behind their shadow, and

so it’s emotional,” Schwam said. “But I am proud of what my

family has done. My friends, coworkers, my volunteers, even my

own children have made sacrifices. They helped put this floor

together.

“As a family we’re here, and our volunteers have been with us so

long, many of them are our family. … I am blessed that I have

this awesome group of people.”

A BRIDGE TO CULTURAL AWARENESS THROUGH LITERATURE, TRAVEL

STORY & PHOTO BY MAUREEN DOLAN

North Idaho College student Holly Tomason smiles, while instructor Aaron Cloyd claps, after

Tomason found the “prize” during a team-building scavenger hunt May 15 on the NIC campus.

Tomason is one of 15 students traveling to the United Kingdom this month with Cloyd and

instructor Molly Michaud as part of the college’s Contemporary World Cultures class.

When she enrolled in classes at North

Idaho College, after an 11-year

hiatus from school, Jessica Roberts

never imagined she would be doing some of her

learning in Europe.

But Roberts, a full-time student who is also a

mom and works full time, traveled this summer

to London, Scotland and Wales with NIC’s

Contemporary World Cultures class.

“I thought there’s no way,” Roberts said. “But we

made it work.”

Roberts is one of 15 students who took the trip

led by NIC English instructors Aaron Cloyd and

Molly Michaud.

In preparation for their overseas adventure, the

students engaged in outdoor team-building

activities on May 15, including a scavenger hunt.

But in this case, the scavengers were blindfolded,

and team members shouted directions to the

sightless searchers, leading them toward a

hidden item.

“We need to be able to rely on each other,” Cloyd

said. “We’re going to be together non-stop for

two weeks.”

It’s the second year the class, focused on British

Murder Mysteries, has been offered at NIC,

and the second time Cloyd and Michaud have

traveled to the United Kingdom with students.

“We’ve been studying British culture and

history using murder mysteries as our in-road,”

Michaud said.

The three novels the class read were “Even Dogs

in the Wild” by Ian Rankin, set in Edinburgh,

Scotland; “King Solomon’s Carpet” by Barbara

Vine, set in London; and “Complicit” by Gillian

E. Hamer, set in North Wales.

“We will walk through the physical locations

where the novels took place,” Cloyd said.

Destinations on the trip itinerary were assigned

to students who will lead three-hour tours based

on their research of the locations.

Sayviann Knoblich, a second-year NIC student

who will take her fellow travelers on a tour of

the Roman walls near London Bridge, said she’s

excited for this experiential learning opportunity.

“I’m a more hands-on learner. This helps a lot,”

she said.

The class was created by Michaud and Cloyd

after they discovered a shared affinity for British

murder mysteries. Michaud said she and Cloyd

hope students, through this class, realize the

joy of travel and how achievable it is while

experiencing the excitement of visiting places

they read about.

“Last year, several students explained this was

their first plane ride! Spokane was the biggest

city they’d seen,” Michaud said. “I tell all of them:

‘This isn’t the only time you’ll go to Europe; it’s

just going to be the first time.’”

The national culture selected for study by

the class will change in 2020, and so will the

destination.

“We have several texts planned for next year in

Ireland,” Michaud said.

World Cultures (FLAN 207.100), call the

WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?

Maximize your life expectancy

By Kenny Markwardt, CSCS

Despite the advancement of literally everything else in our lives, life

expectancy in the United States is actually declining. Think about

that for a second. That should be a flabbergasting piece of data.

The generations that have access to a litany of available information, an

infinite amount of options for exercise and nutrition, an overwhelming

amount of coaches and trainers out there, and the fact that we should be

more aware of it than ever, are losing to generations that grew up on cereal

and cigarettes.

Are new generations lazier? Do they expect someone else to come and

solve their problems before their time on this earth prematurely expires?

Perhaps. Perhaps not. I really don’t know the answer.

However, what I do know is that the other side of the spectrum is equally as

dramatic. In no other time in human history have we had more fit, healthy

and active people who spend a significant part of their time, energy and

resources on prolonging their abilities and purpose as high-functioning

humans.

These people are exercising and purposefully moving daily. They’re eating

well, monitoring relevant numbers, taking care of their bodies and

continuing to improve well into the decades that would previously mean

getting final affairs in order and checking into assisted living.

On both ends of the spectrum, this curve of function and wellness is only

being shifted further in each direction.

HEALTHY TIP

STAY HYDRATED THIS SUMMER

Drinking plenty of water has many benefits. For one, it can help

boost the amount of calories you burn by boosting your metabolism

by 24 to 30 percent over a period of one to one-and-a- half hours.

If you drink two liters each day, this can amount to an additional 96

calories burned!

WHAT SIDE ARE YOU ON?

THE POPULATION OF

OVERFAT, SEDENTARY

AND IMPROPERLY

NOURISHED IS ONLY

GROWING AND

GETTING MORE SO.

AT THE SAME TIME,

THE POPULATION

OF FIT, STRONG AND

MINDFUL ABOUT

WELLNESS IS ONLY

EXPANDING AS WELL.

The population of overfat, sedentary and improperly

nourished is only growing and getting more so. At the

same time, the population of fit, strong and mindful

about wellness is only expanding as well. The implications

of this divide are fascinating to me.

If you can imagine a graph of outlook and future for

each, it becomes incredibly significant. While one side

will start to see a decline in performance and function

as early as their teens and 20s—and will likely only live

until their mid-60s or early 70s at best—the other side is

still kicking butt into their 70s and 80s, with the potential

to live until they reach their early 100s. (And these are

only hypotheticals. I can only speak from the anecdotes of

witnessing people in their 70s here at CrossFit.)

Imagine the difference in quality of life, the length of life

and the amount of experience in one’s life for the person

who might live twice as long and two to three times as

healthy. Imagine the amount of things in your life that

you love that you’ll be able to embrace and continue to do

with your grandkids and great grandkids!

So which side are you on? Are you treating your body like

there’s no tomorrow and that you’ve only got a few years

left? Or like it could live and function until triple digits?

I know which side I’m on.

WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

By Bri Williams, RN, BSN

As we begin to age, one of the first things we

notice is fine lines. But as the aging process

continues, those fine lines turn into deeper

creases and folds begin to develop in our lower face.

The fat pads that once sat high on our cheekbones,

providing us youthful cheek contours and a strong

support and foundation for the entire lower face,

begins to drop. We are left with deep lines between

our nose and lip, referred to as nasolabial folds, as

well as a downturned mouth, undefined jawline,

and flat or sunken cheeks and temples.

If you are dealing with lost facial volume and feel

it is aging you, there are treatments that can help.

Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance that is injected

into the face to help restore lost volume. The most

common dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid,

a type of carbohydrate that is naturally occurring in

the body and can hold up to 1000 times their weight

in water. They can help to reduce the appearance of

lines and wrinkles and can also be used to augment

the lips or regain the natural and youthful-looking

contours of the face. Below we answer your most

frequently asked questions about dermal fillers.

How long do dermal fillers last?

On average, dermal filler lasts nine to 18 months.

They are naturally broken down and metabolized

by your body, therefore how long they last depends

on our body’s metabolism, as well as the type of filler

used, what area it was injected (for instance, an area

of the face that has a lot of movement, like around

the mouth, versus a place with less movement, like

the cheeks), as well as how much filler was used.

Do dermal filler injections hurt?

Most dermal fillers have lidocaine in them, which

helps to numb the area being treated. Topical

numbing cream, as well as additional lidocaine

injections, ice and good injector technique

can also help to minimize discomfort. Many

clients find dermal filler injections to be slightly

uncomfortable—but not painful. Talk to your

aesthetic provider during your consult and ask what

will be done to keep you comfortable.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Is your business the leader of

THE PACK?

We know we are.

CALL TO FIND OUT HOW.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

There is a large selection of dermal fillers on the

market, and they all vary greatly in their ability to

lift, stretch and plump. The type of filler selected

for different areas of the face, as well as how much

is needed, will impact your treatment cost. Filler

comes in 0.5- to 1-milliliter syringes, and the cost

per syringe generally ranges from $400 to $800. It is

important that you talk with your aesthetic provider

to discuss what your goals are and to develop a

treatment plan that addresses your desired outcome

and budget.

As with any aesthetic treatment, there are some risks

involved. The most common side effect is bruising

and swelling, so plan your treatment accordingly

and avoid injections before a big event or trip. More

serious side effects can include vessel occlusion

(the filler is injected into a vessel and compromises

blood flow) and vision impairment. These side

effects are rare and can be greatly minimized if

you are seeing a trained, licensed and experienced

provider. During your consult ask about the risks

and what your provider is doing to keep you safe

and minimize complications. Dermal fillers are a

great tool to help you age gracefully and feel your

most confident and beautiful. Talk about treatment

options with your aesthetic provider today.

THE CLOUDY HAZE

SURROUNDING

CBD OIL

THE FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW

BY SCOTT PORTER

“CBD” is now technically restricted to approved drugs,

and they could face violations if this is used on labels. The

FDA also limits manufacturers or distributors of CBD

products from making health claims of any kind.

There is sometimes a misperception that CBD is

marijuana. Yes, it is derived from the same species of plant,

but the compound that makes marijuana a recreational

drug is called THC. This has the psychoactive effects in

the brain that create the effect of “getting high.” CBD

does not do this.

Plants in the U.S. have been long cultivated for high

percentages of extracted THC, as much as 50 to 70

percent. CBD derived from these plants often requires

considerable processing to remove the THC.

European hemp, on the other hand, has not been

cultivated as a recreational drug, and extracts naturally

contain less than 0.3 percent THC. This makes it legal at

the federal level for distribution in all 50 states, though

state laws will vary.

Scientists have discovered upward of a hundred different

cannabinoids in hemp. Research is showing that CBD

may have a beneficial effect on anxiety, stress, pain

relief, mood management, gut motility and appetite

stimulation.

CBD does not just come from hemp. It’s such an

important compound that our body actually makes it.

These cannabinoids are also found in other plants like

clove, black pepper, Echinacea, broccoli, ginseng and

carrots. That is why they are called phytocannabinoids;

phyto meaning plant.

One area of great concern is synthetic CBD. Early last

year, 52 individuals were hospitalized in Utah for

exposure to toxins that were presented as cannabidiol.

And in order to make money off a rapidly growing

industry, some companies are spiking their products in

order to increase the amount of CBD they can claim their

product has.

There is value in considering CBD. To counter a surge

in economic adulteration of CBD products, nationally

recognized Thorne Research now tests for 370 synthetic

adulterants in their hemp oil. They already test for heavy

metals, residual solvents, THC levels, yeasts and molds.

Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is most commonly considered

an organic compound extracted from the hemp plant. Cannabidiol has

become a popular natural remedy for a variety of ailments. But there is a

cloudy haze of issues and risks surrounding consumer CBD products due

to quality, efficacy, consistency and legality.

Officially, meaning approved by the Food and Drug Administration, CBD is sold

as a pharmaceutical for the treatment of seizures under the name EPIDIOLEX®. Its

effectiveness was established through two different clinical trials for those with either

Lennox–Gastaut or Dravet syndrome.

What this means is that CBD is considered a legitimate and legal drug—but only through

prescription as treatment of pediatric seizures.

As a result of FDA approval and oversight, many companies have recognized the term

As a consumer product, cannabidiol is in such a state of

flux. There are no labelling requirements or regulated

dosage guidelines. Often, it’s very hard to discern the

amount of CBD a product contains even when the labels

state an amount. Testing is showing variations in batches,

and often claims simply do not stand up to analysis.

It is the complete lack of standardization and questionable

quality that rightfully make state lawmakers and agencies

nervous. I think consumers should be wary as well.

If you are shopping, look for products from reputable and

long-standing national companies that can guarantee

consistency and quality, and lean toward European and

organic sources. I think products that avoid the term

“CBD” provide greater integrity and respect toward the

laws.

VAPING CRISIS

E-cigarette use explodes among teens

BY MARC STEWART, HERITAGE HEALTH

It was nearly impossible to notice when a local

middle school student used an e-cigarette in

between classes. The pre-teen would inhale

from a small vape device and blow the vape

cloud into his hoodie.

An observant adult caught the boy in the act.

Busted!

“It’s happening in the sixth grade,” says Post Falls

Police Capt. Jason Mealer. “Ask your child who

the vapers are. They’ll know. Back in the day,

you knew who was smoking based on the smell.

Today, it’s a lot harder with vapid liquid.”

The aroma of strawberries and watermelon

in their backpack might be a telltale sign your

child is vaping. Vape liquids come in flavors

that appeal to kids. Students are drawn to them

because they taste good, smell good and it gives

them a buzz.

Many of the young users think vaping tobacco

products are harmless and nothing at all like

smoking cigarettes. Every American tobacco

cigarette contains about 9 milligram of nicotine,

but smoking burns away a lot of it. On average,

smokers inhale about 1 milligram of nicotine

per tobacco cigarette. Therefore, a teaspoon

of 12-milligram e-liquid is equal to about 60

cigarettes.

“Vaping is horrible,” said Jennifer Romero,

director of Restored Paths. “I am worried about

what’s going to happen to the cancer rates in

young people.”

E-cigarette use among youth has skyrocketed

at a rate of epidemic proportions over the

past year. The percentage of high schoolers

reporting using e-cigarettes rose by more than

75 percent between 2017 and 2018. Use among

middle schoolers also increased by nearly 50

percent, according to the Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug

Administration.

Federal law requires people be 18 to purchase

vape devices, but there are numerous ways

around the age restrictions, including buying

the devices online.

“Kids often get home before the parents, and

they’re able to get to the mailbox first,” says

Mealer. “It’s really easy for them to obtain a

vape.”

E-cigarette use poses a significant—and

avoidable—health risk to young people. Besides

the possibility of addiction and long-term harm

to brain development and respiratory health,

e-cigarette use may also lead to the use of regular

cigarettes that can do even more damage to the

body, such as cancer and popcorn lung disease.

Vape juices are typically made by mixing nicotine

and flavorings with a solvent—often propylene

glycol, which produces the fog machine-like

vape clouds that dissipate quickly.

Local school districts are struggling to deal with

the crisis. The devices have evolved from being

larger and boxy to being smaller and slimmer,

resembling pens or thumb drives. Others have a

“guitar pick” or “computer mouse” shape and are

brightly colored.

Addiction is another huge concern for Romero,

who believes today’s vape users will be Heritage

Health clients down the road.

“Once they start vaping or smoking cigarettes,

it opens them up to other drugs,” Romero says.

“Teens are getting addicted to vaping.”

Romero recommends that parents and

grandparents talk to their kids about the dangers

and consequences of vaping.

MISSION:

SAVE LIVES

Duties of the Coast Guard go

beyond party patrols

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

Kennewick.

One incident that highlights the vital role the Coast Guard plays 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.

According to one local newspaper, crews from the Coast Guard stopped

and escorted three boats back to shore for boating under the influence, in

addition to ending the voyage of two other boats for negligent operations.

In total, the military contingent stopped 81 boats, issued 21 warnings and

was called on to help with numerous EMT responses and commercial

inspections in just one weekend.

"A lot of people had their required safety gear," said USCG Maritime

Enforcement Specialist Second Class Paul Quaife, "but unfortunately we

did have some people who chose to operate a vessel under the influence."

As Lilburn explained, the mission of the Coast Guard is to save lives, not

to be on the prowl for rowdy mariners.

In June, the Coast Guard based in North Bend deployed one of its

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

into the center of the caldera in Crater Lake in Oregon.

Coast Guard Sector Columbia River Command Center received a

dispatch from local authorities at 9:18pm that a hiker had stranded

himself on rock pilings and was surrounded by water and oncoming

waves.

Sector Columbia River hoisted the uninjured man and

transported him to Air Station Astoria.

One Coast Guard spokesperson compared the duties of

the marine-based military to those of firefighters: “Always

on call,” he said. “And ready to respond at a moments’

notice.”

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 mission.

The largest region in the Coast Guard system also has

access to three endurance cutters for high seas rescue, two

icebreakers, a port security unit, a maritime safety unit

and security team out of Base Seattle.

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.

One Coast Guard

spokesperson

compared the duties

of the marine-based

military to those of

firefighters: “Always

on call,” he said. “And

ready to respond at a

moment’s notice.”

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 Station at Neah Bay.

The Sunnfjord sank approximately 6 miles

offshore in about 300 feet of water. The vessel

still had 800 gallons of diesel fuel onboard when

it sank below the high seas. Another Coast

Guard vessel with environmental containment

equipment was dispatched to the scene to

guard against the potential impact of fuel on

the sensitive area.

Double duty

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 hand-held 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

CDALivingLocal.com

64

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 activities in Western

Washington, while an equal number assist the

Coast Guard with crowd control and education

east of the Cascades.

On Lake Coeur d'Alene, and Lake Pend

Oreille in Sandpoint, Idaho, the Coast Guard

is charged with enforcing regulations and

reporting violations to the proper authority,

according to Bliss.

The Coast Guard has one other duty in Eastern

Washington. That is keeping recreational

research since the middle of the last century.

The site was chosen because of the lake’s unique

combination of 148 square miles of surface

area, crystal clear water and one of the deepest

lakes in the country. Depths in some portions

of the pristine lake reach 1,150 feet deep.

The Navy's Acoustic Research Detachment

(ARD) at Bayview, Idaho, which is some 375

miles from the ocean, is where new shapes

and designs for submarine and surface ships

are tested in ocean-like conditions far from

watchful eyes of potential enemy vessels.

The subsystems are tested in a sub-scale

environment that closely mimics the ocean.

The lake is deeper than Loch Ness. Its

large size, clear water and quiet conditions

provided by steep tree-lined shores and a flat

muddy bottom, along with a constant chilly

temperature under 100 feet, are all key factors

that have made it such an attractive testing

location for the U.S. Navy since WWII.

ADVENTUROUS FAMILY LIVING A UNIQUE LIFESTYLE

BY COLIN ANDERSON

CDALivingLocal.com

For the Shanafelt family, big changes came together

quickly. In January of 2017 they bought a boat. In April

their house went on the market and by June it was sold.

Come July, they were moved in and starting a new life

course very few would embark on. Their new home was a 46’

Nodhavn vessel they named the ‘Noeta,’ and their new home was

afloat in the waters of Gig Harbor Washington.

“We were working really hard, doing well, achieved a lot but

didn’t see each other all that much,” recalled Alexa Shanafelt,

an educator, wife and mother of three. “We just started asking

ourselves, ‘What are we doing?’”

Alexa and husband Pat had always dreamed of enjoying a life

at sea but weren’t planning on starting their adventure until all

three kids were out of the house. That changed, however, over a

family dinner.

“We got talking and our daughter Hailey said, ‘That sounds fun!’

And we pretty much decided to do it that night,” said Alexa.

The Shanafelts sold their four-bedroom home and the bulk of

their other possessions, downsizing enough to be able to fit two

parents, one adult child, two teens and the family cat Gilligan

inside the vessel that is about the length of your typical school

bus. While acclimating to their new lives and space, the Shanafelts

docked the Noeta in the protected harbor. Alexa continued to

teach and Pat continued to pilot planes for Alaska Airlines while

Hailey and son Jack attended traditional high school. After a

year it was time to set sail with four aboard as oldest daughter

Mikayla would be moving to California for her career.

They laid out a plan to sail down the Pacific Coast and got as far

as San Francisco before that plan was altered. The boat Pat had

always dreamed of owning, a 50-foot Nordhavn hull 20, came on

the market, something that rarely happens. The boat, however,

was in Rhode Island. Being the adventurous family nonetheless,

they made an offer having only seen photos. The offer was

accepted, the original boat was sold in San Francisco and the

Shanafelts were now on their way to the Northeast.

Being able to add a third stateroom to their floating home

became a priority, especially with two teenagers on board. With

the original boat, the plan was to float leisurely down past the

Baja Peninsula and into the Sea of Cortez, docking in Banderas

Bay and Puerto Vallarta area. With Pat still piloting airplanes,

the Noeta needs to stay near an airport to continue his work and

Puerto Vallarta provides that.

The Shanafelts would still get to their final destination, albeit,

from a quite different approach.

From the far Northeastern seaboard, they set sail for Florida,

sailing up close to the statue of Liberty and seeing other iconic

landmarks and communities they never thought they’d be

floating by.

“We learned quickly that there is a huge migration of people

that take the intercostals waterway from the Northeast down to

Florida every year,” said Pat.

They had to get used to fixed docks instead of floating, and much

shallower waters. In fact, it’s common to bump the bottom

in the much shallower waters of the Atlantic, something that

happened three such times but without any damage. They

made it to Fort Lauderdale, and as their Noeta left on a cargo

ship through the panama canal, the family made their way

back across the country by land, eventually meeting back up

with the boat in La Paz, Mexico.

Two of the most common questions the family gets during

their travels are ‘Why?’ and ‘How do you live like that?’ While

true the Shanafelts are living in much tighter quarters than

most, they deal with the same family dynamics as us and deal

with each situation with honesty.

“We all get along really well, but when someone needs their

space or quiet time, you have to give it to them,” said Alexa.

“It forces you to deal with everything that comes up, and we

make sure everyone has an equal say because you just can’t

keep anything bottled up,” said Pat.

Before leaving Washington they reached out to other families

via social media and blogs to get some advice as well. What

they discovered was a very tight-knit community of people the

Shanafelts were quickly brought into.

Teenagers typically do schooling either from their parents or

online education programs. Around 1pm classes stop and kids

get on the radio to coordinate a place to meet up, which could

be someone’s boat or a place in town. “Nobody gets left out,

and it’s a very unique situation,” said Alexa.

Jack and Hailey still hang out as typical teenagers would,

but have also done some volunteering and have immersed

themselves in the Spanish language by riding local buses and

frequenting local markets and other stores. The family has

found out that it’s not just the ‘cruising’ community that is

welcoming but that the locals in the places they dock are also

very inviting.

“I tell people if you just open your ears, eyes and heart, it will

change you. It’s been really powerful how this experience

has been,” said Pat.

“It’s so rewarding to just let go of your fears of other people,

and we have really enjoyed getting to know families from

all over,” said Alexa.

Hailey is now 17 and is beginning to look at colleges. Her

plan is to spend another year on the boat before heading

off to continue her education. Jack is 15 and has a few

more years to decide what he would like to do. As far

as Mom and Dad are concerned, they see no immediate

reason to head back on land.

“We are going to do this until we no longer enjoy it or we

physically can’t,” said Alexa.

Make an Investment

in Memories

DECIDING WHAT BOAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU

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

available.

Begin by carefully considering what will give you the 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 work into

your budget the cost of a boat slip for the summer months.

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 boats.

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,

AQUATIC

ADVENTURES

FUN IN THE SUN AND THE WATER!

BY JILLAN CHANDLER

We are fortunate to live in a place where the outdoors offer us an abundance of natural pleasures, from hiking and

biking trails, to beautiful parks and lakes, rivers and ocean. As the sun shines brightly and the warm air surrounds

us, there’s nothing like spending a day on the water to cool you off.

Here are some of the top on-the-water recreational activities you’ll want to try this summer—if you haven’t already.

Wakeboarding

We’ve all seen those wakeboarders out on the water, surfing and jumping wakes, even throwing in a flip or two. This can be intimidating to say the least.

But, if you’ve never tried wakeboarding, there’s no time like now! Attempting any new sport can be difficult, but it is said that wakeboarding is one of

the water sports that can easily and quickly be picked up. The concept is simple: You get into the water behind your towing vessel, secure yourself onto a

short board with foot bindings, hold onto a rope and … you’re off! The most difficult part of the process can be actually getting up out of the water. But

once you’re up, it’s time to ride those wakes—thus the name wakeboarding. Make sure to where a life jacket, and some even suggest a helmet.

Wakesurfing

A similar water sport to wakeboarding, wakesurfing takes excitement and skill to the next level. Like wakeboarding, the “surfer” gets up on the wake,

initially by using a tow rope. But rather than continuing to hold on, once the rider reaches the peak of the wake, he or she let's go and trails behind the

boat, surfing the boat's wake without being pulled by the boat. The sport resembles surfing and can be done on any body of water. It is important to note

that you should never attempt wakesurfing behind a boat with an exposed propeller, as serious injury could result.

Kitesurfing

Also referred to as kiteboarding or kiting, kitesurfing is a wind-powered surface water sport that uses a kite and a board to “surf ” across the water. This

action sport combines elements of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, snowboarding, skateboarding and sailing, creating the ultimate

water sport activity. The kitesurfer, or kiteboarder, rides a small surfboard or kiteboard (which is similar to a wakeboard), and harnesses the power of the

wind through a large parachute-type kite, propelling the rider across the water.

Parasailing

Imagine soaring high into the sky, the wind at your face, the blues waters below; that feeling of weightlessness and freedom. And the views can’t be beat!

This recreational kiting activity, also known as parascending or parakiting, tows the willing participant (or participants) behind a water vessel, usually

a boat, while being attached to a specially designed canopy wing called a parasail wing, resembling a parachute. While parasailing, you’ll find yourself

hundreds of feet in the air. It is important to note that if there are extreme winds and dark clouds, it’s best to reschedule your water adventure.

Jet Skiing

If you’re into the speed and smooth ride that hopping on a motorcycle gives you, you can take that adrenaline rush off-road and to the next level—onto

the water! Jet Ski® and Sea-Doo®, two of the most popular brands of personal watercraft (PWC), are powered by a jet engine—rather than being powered

by an outdoor motor and a propeller, like a normal boat—and travel on the surface of the water. These personal watercraft get their power by squirting a

high-powered jet of water behind it, which, in turn, pushes the PWC forward. Riders are sure to enjoy the freedom and speed they will discover on the

water with a personal watercraft.

Boating

This classic family friendly activity appeals to all ages. A day on the water on the comfort of a boat really can’t be beat. It’s a great way to spend time

with family and friends, relaxing while enjoying a beautiful summer day. Not all of us have the opportunity of owning our own boat—don’t let that be a

deterrent. With boat rentals easily available, there’s no reason not to splurge for a day of memory making. And of course, to add some extra excitement

to the day, try some tubing, wakeboarding and water skiing.

Enjoy a Foodie Getaway to

Spokane and Spokane Valley

It’s Crave! Time.

By Marguerite Cleveland

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.

Stay

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.

Crave!

This three-day festival of all things food and drink is a foodie’s Disney World. Not only will you enjoy culinary

THE FOOD SCENE IN SPOKANE HAS JUST BLOSSOMED

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.

Eat

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 fill a

12-miles square area of farms, country stores, farm stands, wineries and

breweries. Farm to table takes on a new meaning when the restaurant

is located on the farm or orchard. Well worth the drive and fits in with

the theme of this trip. There is something special about getting in your

car and discovering where your food comes from. Agritourism has really

helped small, local, family farms. Your dollars go a long way to help these

treasures stay in business.

With a weekend centered around food, shopping has to include a culinary

store. Make sure to check out the locally owned Kitchen Engine, located

in the old Flour Mill. Their motto is “Find Your Inner Chef.” How can you

not with over 7,000 items to choose from. The store has all the tools you

need to create your next culinary masterpiece. High-end cutlery, pots

and pans, every kitchen gadget you can imagine, as well as spices, sauces

and other culinary treats will have you yearning to get in the kitchen.

They also offer cooking classes and demonstrations. Check out their

calendar for more information.

highlight being 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 gorge. In addition to the trail and

artwork, plan to purchase a ticket to ride on the Skyride to have a bird’seye

view of the Spokane Falls from a gondola. Two suspension bridges

along the trail allow you to cross over the river to the other side.

Spokane really deserves its reputation as a foodie paradise. When

planning your weekend, peruse the Crave! events and see which ones you

want to attend. Pay attention to which local restaurants are participating.

Plan your other meals around places you didn’t get to experience at

Crave! or visit a favorite from the 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. Everything you need

to know from hotels to restaurants to things to do is on the site. It is well

organized and easy to find what you are looking for.

What are you waiting for? Plan a trip to Spokane for your perfect foodie

weekend.

After all that food, a little exercise is in order. You can easily access the

Spokane Riverwalk from your hotel. It is a 1.9-mile loop trail with the

Your Summer Dining Destination

By Jillian Chandler

This 111-year-old inn greets you with its simplicity and

elegance the moment you walk through the door. The

restaurant, 315 Martinis and Tapas, sits on the main floor.

Take a seat at the stylish bar and order from the wine list,

dine at a table near one of the two fireplaces or outdoors on

the expansive deck or patio. To add to the ambiance, live soft

music plays every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday evening.

The menu at 315 has an emphasis on tapas—as the

restaurant’s name would suggest. The current summer menu

features their famous huckleberry meatballs, black and white

ahi, St. Louis ribs, Cajun corn cob bites, pub onion stuffed

with Italian sausage, a poppy seed sea scallop and more.

CALYPSOS COFFEE

At Calypsos you’ll find a combination of amazing coffee, which they roast

on site, ice cream, fantastic food and live music on a regular basis. They

display artwork from local artists, offer free Wi-Fi, have a play area for the

kids and also offer a Smart Room for meeting rentals!

116 E. Lakeside Ave. | Coeur d’Alene

208.665.0591 | CalypsosCoffee.com

In addition, there is a flavorful and diverse assortment of

starters and entrees, which pair perfectly with one of 315’s

handcrafted cocktails. Or choose from a selection of wine,

beer and nonalcoholic beverages and mocktails.

Chef Derek Eakin, who has been at the helm of the kitchen

for the past five years, brings his creativity and instinctive

palate to each dish he prepares. “He is able to combine

unusual flavors with familiar foods that make delicious

dishes for us,” say Kris McIlvenna, owner. “Our menu draws

from an international scope, so Chef Derek has a great deal

of freedom for his menu choices.”

With their garden setting just steps from downtown, 315

at the Greenbriar invites you to dine with them Tuesday

through Saturday starting at 3:15pm.

Wine, Women & Shoes

An evening benefiting Idaho Youth Ranch

BY JILLIAN CHANDLER

PHOTO BY JAMES & KATHY MANGIS PHOTOGRAPHY

JULY 17, 2019, MARKS THE SEVENTH ANNUAL WINE, WOMEN & SHOES EVENT

IN DOWNTOWN COEUR D’ALENE. Held at the Coeur d’Alene Resort 6 to 9:30pm,

those in attendance are sure to enjoy yet another fabulous evening of wine,

shopping, socializing and more.

This annual fundraiser benefits the Idaho Youth Ranch programs and services

(formerly the Anchor House). Trauma is transformed into triumph, and hope and

healing are provided to Idaho’s most vulnerable youth and their families through

various sources including outpatient counseling, equine therapy, and adoption

support and facilitation. And all of the money raised from Wine, Women & Shoes

stays right here in North Idaho.

“The Idaho Youth Ranch is an asset to the North Idaho community that not

many people know about. We would encourage community members to attend,

have a great time and learn about the mission and work that Idaho Youth Ranch

provides,” says Melissa Quinn, event coordinator. “This event is unique because

guests can have a fun night out with their girlfriends and support a worthy cause

at the same time.”

HIGHLIGHT EVENT

Women can sip and shop while supporting Idaho Youth Ranch at the lively and

engaging Marketplace, a designer pop-up boutique where those in attendance

can shop the latest styles and fashions from both local and national boutiques

and mingle with charming Shoe Guys. (Twenty percent of boutique sales will go to

Idaho Youth Ranch.) Afterward, guest will take their seats for a fashion show and

live auction, and learn more about what Idaho Youth Ranch does for the North

Idaho community.

“This year we are engaging the community in our ‘Heels for Healing’ online

campaign to raise awareness for Idaho Youth Ranch and the many reasons IYR
