IT’S THE TIME OF YEAR WE START

preparing for the cold winter months. But,

in the meantime, now is the time to enjoy

the autumn season and all the beauty that

abounds during this time of year.

In this issue you’ll find some great ideas

on how to spend the fall months with

family and friends. From hiking in nature

while taking in the beautiful fall foliage, to

picking your own pumpkin from a local

pumpkin patch or apples from that local

orchard, this time of the year is unlike any

other, so take advantage of it.

With October comes the anticipation and

excitement of Halloween. You’ll find some

great area events marking the occasion, as

well as creative ideas for making that oneof-a-kind

costume for adults and children

alike!

If you’re looking for a little adventure this

season, our travel article will take readers

to Asheville, North Carolina, one of the

most beautiful places in the country during

the autumn months—especially during

October. Here you will find the Blue Ridge

Parkway, one of the most scenic roads in

America, as well as the Biltmore Estate built

by George Vanderbilt. Set on 8,000 acres in

the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is America's

largest home.

And no, we haven’t forgotten that football

season is upon us, so we’ve compiled some

great game-time snacks for you to try

at home to satisfy those appetites while

watching the big game.

Fall … there’s nothing like it. Get out and

enjoy all the season brings.

A Good, Good Life

A LOOK INTO THE LIFE OF BONNERS FERRY LOCAL PAUL RAWLINGS

Article and Photos by

Alison Henslee

ART IS VERY

IMPORTANT

TO PAUL, AND

HE EXPRESSES

IT WELL

THROUGH HIS

WRITING AND

PLAYS.

He’s a quiet, unassuming man, but when

you visit with Paul Rawlings, you find

deep knowledge on many topics and a

very diverse list of accomplishments on

his resume: college professor, high school teacher,

bookstore and motel owner, carpenter, dream coach,

writer, actor, director, playwright, and book and

memorabilia collector. The last four speak of his

deepest passions though.

Looking for a small-town vibe, Paul found it in Bonners

Ferry, settling here in 1978 with his wife, Barb, and

their two children. Paul taught high school English and

worked construction (he has renovated or built every

home they’ve owned!), while Barb established her still

active midwifery practice. The children enrolled in

school and shortly afterward their daughter announced

she wanted to audition for a local community theater

play.

Being that they were still new to town and not sure

what kind of people might be there, Paul escorted her

to the audition. While watching his daughter and other

people try out for various parts, Paul found himself

bitten by the acting bug.

That began what continues to be a deep passion for the

performing arts and his love of community theater.

Paul auditioned for the next play that came along and

got a role, a process he went through before quickly

taking on the mantle of director.

Thirty-two plays later, Paul’s enthusiasm for what he

does theatrically has never dimmed. He first directed

plays written by others before turning to his skill of

writing to draft his own creations. “I never started out

to follow someone else’s ‘recipes’ in directing a play or

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

10

to do something cute … I’ve always felt I needed to put

my own touches on a play, that we’re here to make art!”

Paul says.

He has worked with more than 200 local folks who

came out to audition for his roles, some repeatedly,

others once or twice. Paul is enthusiastic about the

caliber of local talent he’s had to draw from over the

years and shares how they gave it their all, transcending

and leaving themselves behind.

Paul has written and directed eight of his own plays;

two that he finds most memorable are “A Good, Good

Day,” which portrayed stories of local folks’ experiences

in life, and “Hearts Open Wide,” a co-creation with

Jesse Tobin, another creative talent, which was a

carefully selected series of songs, not put together as a

concert but chosen for the arc of common thread that

wove through them, creating what he still feels was a

passionate and beautiful form of art.

Art is very important to Paul, and he expresses it well

through his writing and plays, but he shares there’s

another form of art that is even more important

than theater to him. On his property tucked away in

a beautiful corner of Boundary County, you will find

the most stunning collection of books and myriad of

collectibles that you could ever imagine.

Paul has always been an avid reader and loves books.

When they moved to Idaho more than four decades

ago, he brought along a collection of nearly 2,000

books, which ended up in storage, much to his dismay.

Now his collection lives in not one but two library

buildings that he built himself and is carefully counted

at 24,338 books!


On his property tucked

collection of books and

myriad of collectibles that

you could ever imagine.

What makes his library unique though is how he

groups books together, putting them in themes

or by author and then enhancing those displays

with corresponding collectibles. For example,

there’s a display of a stack of books about

Antarctica, which are topped by a small penguin

statue and a rock from the South Pole, a gift from

a local woman who worked there.

A section of baseball books contains pieces

and photos of his childhood and youth, vintage

Rawlings baseball collectibles and, of course,

his own Rawlings jersey. A small bookshelf of

logging books is highlighted by a collection of

toy logging trucks and old photos.

Paul points to his favorite section, the cowboy

nook. It’s full of books about the Old West,

antique license plates, bronze Western sculptures,

old cowboy gear and hats, even strands of rusty

barbed wire.

The collection story began with a wooden case

of old pop bottles that he found at a yard sale

once upon a time, which has grown from those

original 12 to 1,827 old Pepsi, Coke, 7-Up and

other brands, not to mention all the matching

marketing memorabilia such as glasses, signs,

tins and other pieces.

Another favorite collectible of his are old

advertising thermometers, now numbering at

122. Paul combs yard sales and thrift stores for

many finds while others are gifts from people

who find things to add to his collections. Part

of the joy of wandering through his buildings is

discovering collection upon collection of things

from ordinary childhood toys and miniatures to

chess sets and vintage typewriters of every sort.

Paul seems content with his decision to

call Bonners Ferry home; being part of the

community as a business owner, playwright

and carpenter has provided for him. And even

though 41 years have passed, he still keeps busy

with renovation projects and working in his

libraries.

He also feels another play coming to life, so

hopefully we’ll all be able to witness the Paul

Rawlings theater art experience soon!

Heavy Metals

HOW TO MIX AND MATCH METAL FINISHES IN YOUR HOME

BY NIKKI LUTTMANN, SEVEN BEE INTERIORS

FOR SANDPOINT FURNITURE, CARPET ONE AND SELKIRK GLASS AND CABINETS

One of the more common questions I get asked as a

designer is how to mix metal finishes. And though

it seems like a fairly straightforward question, it

doesn’t really have a straightforward answer. The

rule is typically to mix no more than three metal finishes in any

given room, and even go so far as to say in any given home.

However, something I strongly believe is that rules are meant

to be broken!

One of the coolest new trends in lighting and hardware is a

matte black finish. And while this finish looks great all on its

own, it also looks fantastic paired with a cool satin nickel or

stainless steel finish, or even with a warmer brass finish. I’ve also

paired black with weathered copper to fantastic effect, which

looks great in more rustic or industrial interiors.

When choosing new hardware for your kitchen, however, it can

be tricky to pair new finishes with existing light fixtures or other

elements. For cabinetry, one thing to keep in mind are your

hinges. You might switch out your old boring shiny brass drawer

pulls for sleek new stainless steel models, but if your hinges are

exposed and stay the same shiny brass, the effect is lost and all of

a sudden it looks like a bit of a mess instead of the modern new

look you wanted. In this case, what I might do is either switch

out the hinges too, or, if that’s not an option, replace the old

pulls with updated brass pieces for a more modern look that still

works with the existing hinges.

When it comes to lighting, finish is very important. I don’t

know if you’ve ever walked into a home and looked up at the

ceiling to spy a gold and crystal chandelier proudly declaring

that the house was built in 1987, but I sure have!

Replacing light fixtures can have a huge impact

on how your house looks. But choosing a finish

can be tricky. One thing that might help you

choose a finish is your door hardware. If you

have satin nickel doorknobs, then you know a

satin nickel fixture would look right at home in

your house. Should you want to branch out and

choose on oil-rubbed-bronze (ORB) fixture, go

ahead! Just make sure that it’s not the only ORB

element in the house, so it doesn’t look out of

place.

One thing I try to stay away from is specialty

finishes. For example, in the early ‘90s there

was a textured granite finish that was very

popular for light fixtures. This short-lived trend

immediately dated any house that included

this strange breed of light fixture, and the

homeowners were then forced to replace it or

simply ignore it once it went out of style.

For that reason, I opt to go for classic metals

and finishes. Oil-rubbed-bronze, patinaed

brass and copper, satin nickel, stainless steel

and simple black are fairly timeless and will

stay up-to-date looking for far longer than

their trendier counterparts. You can generally

combine any two to three of these in any given

room and still have them looking great now and

for years to come!

Be Creative When Withdrawing

from Retirement Accounts

This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones

Financial Advisors Merle Ansley and Kevin Callos.

Like many people, you may spend

decades putting money into your IRA

and your 401(k) or similar employersponsored

retirement plan. But

eventually you will want to take this money

out—if you must start withdrawing some of

it. How can you make the best use of these

funds?

To begin with, here’s some background: When

you turn 70 ½, you need to start withdrawals—

called required minimum distributions or

RMDs—from your traditional IRA and

your 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored

retirement plan, such as a 457(b) or 403(b). (A

Roth IRA is not subject to these rules; you can

essentially keep your account intact for as long

as you like.) You can take more than the RMD,

but if you don’t take at least the minimum

(which is based on your account balance and

your life expectancy), you’ll generally be taxed

at 50 percent of the amount you should have

taken—so don’t forget these withdrawals.

Here, then, is the question: What should you

do with the RMDs? If you need the entire

amount to help support your lifestyle, there’s

no issue—you take the money and use it.

But what if you don’t need it all? Keeping in

mind that the withdrawals are generally fully

taxable at your personal income tax rate, are

there some particularly smart ways in which

you can use the money to help your family or,

possibly, a charitable organization?

Here are a few suggestions:

• Help your grown children with their

retirement accounts. Your grown children

may not always be able to afford to “max

out” on their IRAs. You might want to help

them with any excess funds from your own

retirement accounts. You can give $15,000 per

year, per recipient, without incurring any gift

taxes—an amount far higher than the current

annual IRA contribution limit of $6,000 (or

$7,000 for individuals 50 or older).

• Help your grandchildren pay for college.

You might want to contribute to an investment

specifically designed to build assets for college.

A financial professional can help you choose

which investments might be most appropriate.

Of course, if your grandchildren are already in

college, you are free to simply write a check

to the school to help cover tuition and other

expenses.

• Help support a charitable organization.

Due to recent changes in tax laws, many

individuals now claim a standard deduction,

rather than itemizing. As a result, there’s less of

an incentive, from a tax standpoint, for people

to contribute to charitable organizations.

But if you’d still like to support a charitable

group and gain potential tax benefits, you

might want to consider moving some, or all,

of your required distributions from your IRA

to a charity. You can transfer up to $100,000

from your IRA in this type of qualified

charitable distribution, thus meeting your

RMD requirements without adding to your

taxable income. Furthermore, this move

might keep you in a lower tax bracket. (Before

making this transfer, though, you will need to

consult with your tax advisor.)

Your RMDs can contribute greatly to your

retirement income, but, as we’ve seen, they

can do even more than that—so use them

wisely.

FESTIVE FALL

FUN

U-pick pumpkin patch at

Cowcreek Blueberry Farm

By Jillian Chandler

"It all brings

me joy that

I can be

able to offer

this to our

community."

Here in Bonners Ferry, the close-knit community is unlike any

other. Throughout the year, local businesses put on a variety

of events for all ages to enjoy, and with the fall season upon

us, Cowcreek Blueberry Farm once again invites those young

and old to the farm for a weekend of festive fall fun.

2019 marks the third year that owner Debbie Woods is opening up the

pumpkin patch for two days of autumn activities.

“Our attendance from the first year doubled last year, and we expect

that now that it's becoming better known, we will have a great turnout,”

Debbie says.

Last year’s hay pyramid—bales of hay stacked into a pyramid shape for

kids to climb and play on—was quite the attraction … and a hit! And this

year kids will get to enjoy it again. Paula Sandlin from STAR Dust Ranch

will be at the farm again this year with her gentle giant fjords offering

wagon rides around the hay field. In addition, this year there will be a

bouncy house to add to the fun.

Last year Chandra was on-site with a plethora of sweet treats for the kids

and adults, and this year the Compass Grille will be serving up some of

their favorite menu items.

“As with the u-pick blueberry portion of our farm, I love seeing kids

come to the farm and see where food originally comes from, and I enjoy

sharing the ‘farm experience’ with them,” says Debbie.

The event is free to attend, while pumpkins from the u-pick pumpkin

patch are available for purchase.

When it comes to what she enjoys most about hosting this event, Debbie

responds: “Is it the little ones that run into the field filled with pumpkins

or riding around in a wagon pulled by two beautiful horses? It all brings

me joy that I can be able to offer this to our community.”

The fun takes place Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13, 10am

to 4pm both days.

Fall Festival

Fashion Show

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT BY ATTENDING

THIS WONDERFUL EVENING

BY JILLIAN CHANDLER

Once again, the Boundary County Victim Services (BCVS)

will be hosting its annual Fall Festival Fashion Show.

During this evening of fundraising, event attendees can

expect a night of laughter, familiar faces and exciting

auction, all while creating a platform to share knowledge and resources

for victims and families of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.

“For this event we concentrate on and

emphasize togetherness, community and

laughter amongst old friends and new

faces,” says Melissa Krejci, a volunteer with

BCVS. “We choose to focus on the power

of togetherness and the impact of neighbors

helping neighbors while we briefly honor the

implications of domestic violence and sexual

assault.”

Formerly held at the Pearl Theater, this year’s

Fashion Show will be held at the Boundary

County Fairgrounds, as it has outgrown the

space. The event will take place on November

2. Doors typically open at 6, however, the

official time will not be determined until

tickets are created.

They encourage anyone and everyone to

attend, though parents are advised to use

their own discretion regarding bringing

children due to the serious topics discussed, “however, we would

never dissuade anyone from attending this informative and fun event,”

affirms Melissa.

Last year the event raised $11,000. Proceeds were used to directly serve

victims and survivors to meet their needs. “The money earned at this

event is spent at the director’s and the board of directors’ discretion,

“WE CHOOSE

TO FOCUS ON

THE POWER OF

TOGETHERNESS

AND THE IMPACT

OF NEIGHBORS

HELPING

NEIGHBORS."

so they may be creative in the ways they assist victims,” according to

Melissa.

“Your supportive monetary contribution can provide relief in the

form of emergency telephones, emergency personal supplies like baby

food or temporary shelter, cost to get boarding of pets and animals so

they do not become the target of abuse if the survivor leaves the home,

transportation assistance and wintertime

utilities assistance,” she adds. “We also ask

the community for sponsorships of costs

incurred, such as the rental of the venue.”

Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at

Under the Sun, The Dressing Room and

Bonner Books. You may also purchase at the

door until capacity is reached.

As Melissa says, the organization has been

blessed to have the continued support of

Under the Sun and The Dressing Room at our

event again this year. The Dressing Room will

be providing fashion items, and Under the

Sun will provide beer and wine. There will

also be complimentary appetizers, and a live

auction and silent auction.

“We do have a raffle that we call ‘Give Someone

Wings,’” says Melissa. “With the purchase of a

$5 Wings card, the participant will be eligible for multiple drawings for

a chance to win prizes throughout the evening. The Wings proceeds

directly support survivors and victims of domestic violence and/or

sexual assault who may be experiencing barriers to leaving.”

Show your support and get your tickets to this year’s Fall Festival

Fashion Show.

ATHLETE OF

THE MONTH

BY COLIN ANDERSON

Shop at Beck’s!

We offer a wide range of

quality furniture

available at the

best prices!

LILY BLACKMORE

October’s athlete of the month stays

busy throughout the entire school

year. Junior Lily Blackmore is

currently in soccer season but

soon will come dance team, track and even

golf. Through athletics and competition, Lily

has learned to push herself in order to meet

her goals.

“One life lesson I have learned from being

involved in sports is that you are not ever going

to be the best but you should always strive to

be the best, meaning you are always going to

have to be working on being better,” she says.

Lily thrives at soccer, being a starter on the

team since her freshman year. She also went

to state with her dance team and placed 5th in

districts in the pole vault, all this while focusing

on her academics and being a member of the

National Society of High School Scholars.

Like almost anyone who plays competitively,

Lily has gone through serious adversity. She

sprained the MCL in her knee while playing

soccer her sophomore year and was told she

couldn’t compete for at least six weeks. During

her rehab she kept her goals at the forefront. “I

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

went to physical therapy, worked out a ton and

came right back into my sports, finishing out

dance team by going to state, pole vaulting on

the varsity track team and participating in golf

districts,” she says.

While Bonners Ferry is far from the nearest

ocean, that hasn’t stopped Lily’s curiosity. She

plans on surrounding herself with the sea by

pursuing a degree from BYU- Hawaii, located

on the North Shore of Oahu. There she plans

on pursuing a career either helping people as

a nurse or studying wildlife. “I am interested

in being a marine biologist because I am

fascinated by the ocean and its inhabitants,”

she says. Lily also plans on continuing to play

soccer recreationally.

Being a part of so many teams has been

influential in her life, and Lily recalls learning a

lot from the senior class when she was coming

in as a freshman. It’s something she now

does as an upperclassman. It’s an experience

she won’t forget. “I thoroughly enjoy sports

because of the competition and especially

getting to know my teammates.”

BONNERS FERRY

IN FOCUS

GROW!: NURTURING THE

COMMUNITY

LITTLE FREE GARDEN PROJECT

CONTINUES TO GROW!

BY JILLIAN CHANDLER | PHOTOS COURTESY OF GROW

Little free gardens have made a name for

themselves across the country—and

right here in Bonners Ferry thanks to

the wonderful community and their

generosity and support.

Gardeners for Regional Organic Wellbeing,

also known as GROW!, is a local nonprofit

organization whose missions is to help in

supporting and expanding the local food system

and encourage sustainable agricultural methods

here in Boundary County. Unfortunately,

GROW! has found itself struggling to maintain

enough volunteers to maintain its community

garden, located on the grounds of Trinity

Lutheran Church. Here, they rent out garden

plots, grow organic produce for the community

and teach gardening methods with the help of

the University of Idaho Extension and the UI

Master Gardener program.

“We thought if we could take little gardens

out to visible sites in the community, we could

increase awareness of what we do,” says Kate

Painter, Agricultural Extension educator for

University of Idaho. "I thought, ‘We could be

like the Little Free Libraries.’ Then I found out

that I was not the first to have this idea and,

in fact, there was already a Little Free Garden

movement in the country!”

To help fund the project, Kate submitted a grant

for $2,500 to the City of Bonners Ferry through

their High Five! project, which is sponsored by

Blue Cross of Idaho's Foundation for Health.

“High Five! works with communities to promote

healthy eating and physical activity for Idaho’s

children,” says Kate. “The grant stipulates

that we focus on growing food, as opposed to

ornamentals, in these little free gardens.”

In May of this year, GROW! received the grant

funds, and by June, 20 planters had been installed

around town. The GROW! team worked hard to

find sponsors who were interested in tending to

a little free garden at their business location, buy

planters, soil and plants, and put them in place

around town, according to Kate.

Thanks to the enthusiasm and generosity of the

community, GROW was able to install many

more little free gardens than they thought was

possible. Smiling, Kate says, “Tom Bushnell was

so excited about the project that he provided his

own planter, complete with vegetables, himself.

Seth Thomas, at Live Edge Productions,

donated a large number of seedlings for this

project, including his heirloom tomatoes and

peppers that he raises from seed and sells at his

place of business each year. The Nest and Under

the Sun also purchased their own planters and

According to Kate, the businesses and other

to submit an application. In turn, participants

gardens or donate planters, plants and material

stevia, edible flowers, a variety of herbs, edible flowers and pole beans. “We

are in the process of replacing some of the earlier lettuce plants with short

season carrots, beets, peas, kale and fall lettuce,” says Kate. “Many people

don’t know about succession planting for fall crops.”

And the most incredible part of these little free gardens is that the fresh,

organic produce is free to the community to enjoy. All that is asked is that

those taking from the garden select just a small sample of the produce, such

as a tomato, a pepper or two, some herbs for your meal that night. Kate adds

that The Little Free Garden at the GROW! Community Garden consists

of a perennial herb bed, which has a large quantity of herbs including dill,

oregano, basil, tarragon and thyme; enough to provide herbs for dozens of

families.

The goal of GROW!’s little free gardens, according to Kate, is this: “By

installing these free gardens around town, I hope more people in our

community will become interested in growing their own food and in eating

more locally grown produce. I hope our children will become interested in

the magic of gardening and learn to love fresh garden produce. I also hope

that we will be able to get more volunteers involved with GROW! so we can

continue to expand our impact in the community.”

Those interested in participating in this national project can set up a

Little Free Garden for their community and register it on their website,

LittleFreeGarden.com. It costs $33 to register your garden, and you'll receive

a kit that includes a metal Little Free Garden placard, a Little Free Garden

sticker and other materials.

KIDS ARE SURE TO ENJOY AFTER A

LONG DAY AT SCHOOL.

“We fell in love with Idaho—the landscape and beauty.

When we saw this property, we knew it was what we

wanted. We saw this orchard and we loved it! We loved

the whole idea of converting it to organic. The idea of offering a healthier

option in produce sounded appealing to us.”

Kathleen and Wayne Tesoriero discovered Bonners Ferry several years

ago, when their son and his family moved to the area. It only took a few

visits for them to fall in love with Bonners Ferry, and they soon decided

to take the necessary steps to relocate, not only to be closer to family but

to reinvent their lives—living their lives fulfilling their passion.

They purchased property in July of 2018 and officially moved to Bonners

Ferry in the summer of 2019.

Kathleen and Wayne are creating and living the life they always imagined.

After purchasing their property, Mountain View Organic Orchard is

blossoming into more than they could ever have imagined.

Previously owned by George and Janice Johnson, the couple laid out a

great foundation, according to Kathleen. And, Kathleen and Wayne

have had wonderful caretakers, who have helped with the conversion to

organic, and they are utilizing local organic farmers as consults to help

make their operation successful.

This past July, the Tesorieros have officially taken residence and are

taking a hands-on approach to making the orchard successful.

Cherries, apples, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, oh my! The

property offers all of these, but the husband-and-wife team is looking to

the future to provide only the best of these fruits to their neighbors—and

that means going organic.

“It is a three-year process to become certified organic,” says Kathleen.

“Our goal is to become certified sometime in the year 2021. We follow all

practices and guidelines required to become organically certified, using

no harsh or artificial sprays or chemicals.”

Kathleen and Wayne are happy to be offering a cleaner and healthier

choice for the community in growing their produce organically.

“We love to meet people and are excited to serve our community through

u-pick and selling to local markets.”

The apples are ready for harvest, and the Tesorieros will be selling them

to local markets. Be prepared for the most delicious, sweetest apples you

have ever tasted, and the apple cider will be unlike any other you’ve ever

experienced.

Though they are still very new to the area, Kathleen and Wayne are

already settling in well. “We are having fun getting to know the people

in the community,” says Kathleen. “We have started attending Mountain

Springs Church in Bonners Ferry and are beginning to jump in and serve

in various areas of interest.”

The Tesorieros invite the community to join them at their orchard where

you can u-pick their fresh delicious apples the kids are sure to enjoy after

a long day at school, and make sure to grab a few extra in order to prepare

that fresh, homemade, hot apple pie, ideal for the fall season.

Hours for u-pick will be posted on their website, as well as their Mountain

View Organic Orchard Facebook page.

“We both love the great outdoors. We love working together and love the

fruit of our labor,” says Kathleen. “Come make this a family experience!”

MAKING A

FINANCIAL WORLD

OF DIFFERENCE

ONE WOMAN’S JOURNEY TO HELP

OTHERS, ONE BUDGET AT A TIME

BY ALISON HENSLEE

PHOTOS COURTESY OF KUMIKO LOVE

When a person goes to college and gets a degree, they

typically learn a great deal about their chosen field,

hoping to find a good job, make a lot of money and live

the perfect dream life. For one Spokane, Washington,

woman though, going from point A to point B has already happened

in her 30-some years, but with a fascinating, and life-changing, twist.

Kumiko Love, an accredited financial counselor and the creator of The

Budget Mom, was raised on a farm in Chewelah, Washington, and

lived a normal farm-girl life. She grew up, went off to college where

she obtained a business administration degree—majoring in finance

and accounting and minoring in economics. She got a job right out of

college with an independent financial company in Spokane and worked

for seven years as an administrative assistant and accredited financial

counselor, helping other people wisely spend and save their money.

She also did traditional life things: got married and had a child. And

then the not-so-planned life things: got a divorce and became sole

financial provider for her then 2-year-old son, which was a challenge

in itself, and then factor in substantial student loan debt, credit card

debt and a new vehicle loan, all adding to her single mom level of stress.

Miko found herself going to work feeling embarrassed because, as she

puts it, “How am I supposed to tell these people how to manage their

money when I can’t even manage my own?!” She had the knowledge,

she knew the steps, but a long-time struggle with self-esteem issues

made retail therapy a thing in her life, and it served as an antidote for

her feeling of no self-worth. The more she struggled with that issue, the

deeper in debt she went.

Being a mom was so meaningful to her, Miko knew she had to take

steps to work on her personal self-development so she could be the best

parent to her son. The pivotal financial turning point happened when

she finally faced her debt. Writing it all out on paper and seeing her

real debt numbers—almost $78,000!—in black and white was all the

motivation she needed.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

28

Pulling from every bit of knowledge she had, Miko became her own

best client. Debt reduction became her number one focus, and she

challenged herself to try different budgets but was unable to find one

that completely worked for her.

Her solution? Dig through all the budgets that she had tried and pick

out the pieces in each of them that had worked for her. Then Miko

carefully compiled those pieces and rolled them together until she

created a budget worksheet that finally worked for her. Her paycheck

system allowed Miko to outline her spending based on the money she

was going to earn, and then she always knew exactly where her money

was going ahead of time.

Miko found the new budget worked and did everything she could to

stay on course, using tools like a vision board and colorful debt payoff

trackers to keep track of every single dollar she put toward paying down

her debt. Every line she colored in on her payoff trackers represented

not only another goal met but also a lot of hard work.

She whole-heartedly advocates using a vision board to track one’s

financial goals. Her first board, started way back in 2011, simply had

a photo of a really nice backpack that she wanted to save up for. Now,

literally every single piece of her financial life is on multiple vision

boards above her desk, and she marvels at how many financial “wishes”

have already become realities—starting with that long-ago backpack!

Another thing that worked for Miko was following her own advice,


BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

29


Another thing that worked

for Miko was following her

own advice, “If you can’t

reduce spending, you need to

increase income.”

“If you can’t reduce spending, you need to

increase income.” After combing through and

cutting out as much unnecessary spending

from her monthly budget as she could and

still coming up short, Miko then considered

her options. She could go find an additional

job, but then she would be putting her son

in additional daycare, so there would be an

extra expense. She weighed out that option

and decided it wouldn’t be worth the money

or time away from her son.

So then Miko looked at her favorite hobbies,

wondering if there was something that she

loved to do that could bring in additional

money. And so she decided to fine-tune her

love of photography. After watching countless

hours of YouTube videos and reading on the

subject, she used that talent and found work

as a real estate photographer to supplement

her income. It was perfect because it was

something she could do on her time off and

take her son with her. She worked hard,

stayed focused and scraped together every

penny she could to go toward lowering those

balances.

She began to see progress but, deep down

inside, she was bursting at the seams with

what she was learning and with every

accomplishment, every bill paid, every line

colored in—Miko just wanted to shout her

knowledge out to other single moms. She

knew there were other moms out there who

understood exactly where she was coming

from and knew what it felt like to be in her

shoes; women who could benefit from what

she was learning to do the same thing: get

out from under those mountains of debt. She

wanted to share it with everyone!

So one night, not able to stay quiet one

second longer, Miko grabbed her computer

and started typing. Her first post flowed

into a steady stream of posts; she began

sharing the tools she was using: the colorful

tracking charts, cash envelope system and her

paycheck budget binder.

Though her blog, newsletter, Instagram,

Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, even Amazon

accounts, Miko shares her best tips, ideas and

tools that have worked for her, and dedicates

herself to holding true to the purpose that

she believes she was put on earth—to do

something great. Helping people is her

passion, and Miko throws herself at it with

all of her heart. Every bit of communication

is answered personally by her and, now,

her assistant. They have posted a video on

Instagram every single day for a year-and-ahalf

now.

“Everything we do here, every single day, is

we want to inspire hope,” Miko shares. She

believes the most effective motivation for

anyone is to invoke feeling, adding that “…

every article we share or video we post is

done with the thought, ‘Is this going to invoke

feeling?’ Because without provoking feeling,

there’s not going to be action, and people take

action because they feel something.”

Miko has definitely evoked feeling. Her fans

clamored for more, so she began offering free

resources and marketing her tools: colorful cash

envelopes and trackers, worksheets, planners

and her Budget by Paycheck workbooks that

are now being sold around the world.

Miko was shocked when she went viral. Her

fan base is growing rapidly—she adds about

1,000 followers per day, and she has nearly

65,000 subscribers on YouTube. Google “The

Budget Mom” and you’ll find her story goes

on for pages. She’s been featured on “Good

Morning America” and other talk shows, her

story told in endless articles, and currently

she’s planning her first speaking event in

Spokane Valley (October 23 at the CenterPlace

Regional Event Center).

“I had no idea The Budget Mom would ever

be this big, that so many people wanted to

change their financial lives,” Miko says of her

newfound status as a financial influencer,

“but it helps me pursue my passion of helping

people every day, which makes me happy!”

When asked what makes her different than

other financial bloggers, she believes there are

two things that have made her successful:

One, sharing her real numbers since day one.

Miko believes in teaching from experience,

not by example, so she’s completely transparent

about her entire debt story. And two, having

a personal connection with her fans. People

are surprised when she responds to their

correspondence, but that’s her way of making

an impact, which she feels also keeps her

relatable. Miko especially loves hearing how

her advice helps people find their way out of

debt, saving relationships and lives—because

her advice works.

Remember that $78,000 in debt she was buried

under? Miko paid it off in full four years later,

the bulk of it in eight months after her Budget

Mom business started growing. As of last year,

she and her business are 100 percent debt-free.

Her current goal? Saving enough money to buy

her first home with cash. And yes, that means

she’s still practicing what she preaches and

living very frugally!

Sometimes it’s challenging to make that

sacrifice when you want something now, but

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

32


Miko advocates the rewards that

come from being a patient spender.

Her goal of paying cash for a home

will hopefully then allow her to travel

and spend more time with her son,

and without a mortgage to deal with,

Miko can entertain the thought of

retiring early.

Miko’s biggest message to those

struggling under a mountain of debt

is to take that first small step and the

next one and just continue to stick

with it. She encourages people to keep

their motivation in front of them, to

not lose heart at having to do without,

especially because this isn’t going to

be their permanent way of living.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

“I had no idea The Budget

Mom would ever be this big,

that so many people wanted

to change their financial

lives but it helps me pursue

my passion of helping people

every day, which makes me

happy!”

33

Per Miko’s own experience, the

sacrifice you’re making today is going

to be worth it when you are finally

getting to live the life you really want

and be able to do whatever you would

like.

She might be small in stature but

Miko Love is making a really big

impact in the world, generously

dispensing her budgeting and living

frugally knowledge so that others can

live debt-free lives also, one carefully

saved (and spent) penny at a time.

MICRONEEDLING

What is it and how can it

transform my skin?

By Bri Williams, RN, BSN,

Refined Aesthetics Med Spa

What would you say if I told you there

is a treatment that has been around

for over 1000 years, is safe for all

skin types, and uses your body’s own

healing abilities to repair damaged skin tissue and

turn back the hands of time? First used in 1905 to

treat scars and hyperpigmentation, microneedling has

come a long way and is now considered one of the best

in-office treatments for acne scarring, fine lines and

wrinkles, and more. Read on to learn more!

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction

therapy, is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical,

medical-grade treatment designed to enhance

production of collagen and elastin, thus lessening the

appearance of sun damage, acne scars, stretch marks

and hyperpigmentation. In addition, fine lines and

wrinkles are reduced, giving the skin a healthier glow

and fresh appearance. The procedure works well on all

areas of the body and is most commonly performed on

the face, neck/chest and back of hands.

The treatment includes creating thousands of

microscopic punctures to the skin using a pen-like

device that has sterile needles in it. The needles

penetrate to specific depths creating micro “injuries.”

As a result, your body goes to work to “heal the wound,”

and in the process new collagen and elastin are created.

This helps to firm the skin and heal imperfections.

HOW MUCH DOES MICRONEEDLING COST?

The cost of microneedling varies depending on the part

of the body being treated and how large the treatment

area is, as well as where you are having the treatment

completed. In general, it is approximately $300 to treat

the face, and a series of three to four treatments (one

month apart) is most often recommended for initial

therapy.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

34


Look and feel

your best.

DOES MICRONEEDLING HURT?

Prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream

is applied to the treatment area, making the

procedure well tolerated by most. It is generally

described as being slightly uncomfortable, but

not painful.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME OR

RECOVERY AFTER THIS TREATMENT?

You can expect to look a little red the first 24

hours after treatment (like a sunburn). You

need to avoid any unprotected sun exposure

to the treatment area for seven days after your

treatment. Mild swelling and occasionally

bruising can occur, and dryness/slight peeling is

expected around day three. Most clients return to

their normal activities on post treatment day one

and find the recovery to be easy.

WHERE CAN I HAVE THIS TREATMENT

DONE?

Microneedling should only be performed in

a clinical office and by licensed professionals

to avoid complications such as infection. It is

important that your provider is knowledgeable

about facial anatomy and the safety of providing

minimally invasive treatments. When in the

care of a trained and licensed professional,

microneedling is considered a very safe treatment.

To learn more about microneedling or to find

out if this treatment can help address any skin

concerns you have, consult with your aesthetic

provider.

HALLOWEEN AT HOME

Creating Your Own Costume

By Colin Anderson

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

36


BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

37


With just weeks until Halloween, you, like many others, probably

won’t start thinking about your costume until the last minute. You

can always run to the big box store and grab something off the rack,

but why spend the money when you probably have all you need for

a unique getup laying around your house? Find your creative side

by utilizing some of these common household items for a fun, goofy or spooky

new look.

The WAY back of the closet

It’s likely you’ve got some outfits stashed away that are 20-plus years old (and likely

even older at Grandma and Grandpa’s house). Dig out the floral tank tops, bellbottom

or acid-wash jeans, and transport yourself back to a previous generation.

Maybe Grandpa still has pinstripe suit and fedora for an easy mobster look. Old

wedding dresses or bridesmaid dresses that you don’t mind altering can pair with

ghoulish makeup for zombie or vampire brides and prom dates. Kids love playing

dress up, so why not make them look just as you did when you were 8 years old

and “super cool.”

Cardboard

Many of us have packages shipped to our homes almost daily, and the stack of

cardboard in the garage can quickly get out of control. Use your imagination, slap

on some color and find hundreds of ways to utilize this light-weight accessory.

Build armor, a sword or shield. Turn yourself into a tablet, wall calendar or TV

screen. Kids can use large boxes with a cutout for their heads to become robots

and adults, perhaps a box of wine? At the end of the night you can choose to keep

the costume for another year or recycle it easily at a cost of roughly $0.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

38


Bedsheets and pillowcases

If you are really in a last-minute pinch, a white bedsheet and powdery

make-up on your face is a quick ghost costume. If you want a scarier

look, cover the sheet in fake blood and pretend you are a cadaver from

the morgue. Sheets make great capes for little princesses and little super

heroes, and instead of buying a mask from the store, create your own by

cutting out some eye and mouth holes in an old pillowcase. Kids who

want to hit every house on the block and then some might also consider

using a pillowcase to haul all their candy, as regular buckets can easily

overflow, and you can throw it over your shoulder when it gets heavy.

Mimic your favorite TV/movie character

This might require a trip to the local thrift store but shouldn’t break

the bank. Going as a character simply means finding everyday clothes

that match their look. A brown bathrobe, shorts and a bowling ball and

you’re easily transformed into The Dude; black suit, white shirt and

black tie and you're an agent from “Men in Black”; a lab coat, purple

shirt, pink shorts and doctor’s bag and your little one is their favorite

cartoon doctor. Re-watch your favorite movie or show, take a look at

your character and find clothing and accessories that make you look as

authentic as possible.

Old wedding dresses or bridesmaid dresses that you

don’t mind altering can pair with ghoulish makeup

for zombie or vampire brides and prom dates.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

39


Mom’s makeup

Maybe not her favorite lipsticks and eye shadows, but those ones that

don’t get used as often can be very versatile for the look you are going for.

Dark shades of eye shadow can create black eyes and bruises. Mascara

can color in a beard to become jet black, and eyeliner can make cuts,

scars or stitches. Bold lipstick colors will make you stand out, and nail

polish can be wacky and mismatched for a clown or goofy character, or

fit for a fairytale princess.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

40

Halloween doesn’t have to be expensive, and your creative costume

made at home will catch more eyes and grab more comments than those

bought at a store (and that you’ll probably see five of during your night).

Figure out what you want to be and, before running out of the house, dig

around in the closets, storage bins and attic to see what you can utilize

for your unique look.

Have a happy Halloween, and feel free to share your best DIY costumes

with us on our social media platforms!

Your Fall Activities Bucket List

FAMILY FRIENDLY FUN AWAITS

BY JILLIAN CHANDLER

The leaves are changing to hues of deep reds and golden yellows,

and the days and nights have turned cool and crisp. Fall has

arrived here in the Northwest, and with it an abundance of

activities that are sure to bring smiles to everyone’s faces.

The autumn months may be a bit chilly, but these activities are sure to

warm the hearts of every family member both young and old.

As the leaves slowly make their way down to the ground, it calls for some

yard cleanup. But instead of just raking up those leaves and throwing

the piles into a garbage bag—the festive pumpkin trash bags are most

certainly the way to go this time of the year—let the kids have some fun!

There’s nothing like jumping into a big pile of leaves, throwing them in

the air or at one another, and just lying in them and daydreaming the day

away. Who needs snow angels when you can make leaf angels? And this

makes for a prime time to snap some great action-packed

photos of the

kids.

And Mom and Dad, don’t forget to join in the fun. All work and no play

was never good for anyone.

The many varieties and colors of the leaves can also make for a fun

afternoon art project. Have the kids gather a dozen or so of their favorite

leaves and let their imaginations soar as they create their own unique fall

leaf art projects. I still remember placing a white piece of paper over the

leaf, peeling the wrapper off of the crayon, then rubbing the crayon onto

the paper to make the outline of the leaf and all of its veins and stem.

You don’t have to look to your own backyard to enjoy the leaves. As

the fall foliage could easily make the season one of the most rich and

colorful of the year, take the family out for a walk in nature, or even a

drive, to take in the sights that this season blesses us with.

Looking for a little adventure? Rather than going to your local

supermarket to pick out your pumpkins—whether they be for carving

or cooking—plan a trip to a local you-pick pumpkin patch. Here the

kids can roam around outdoors and in the fresh air and choose their

very own unique pumpkin to carve just in time for Halloween.

In addition, select your own pumpkins and other squash

available for purchase to decorate your front porch or

create an autumn centerpiece for your dining room

table. And don’t forget, grab a few extra for those

pumpkin pies, baked pumpkin seeds, squash

soups and more. And let the kids help

in the meal preparation.

preparing meals, farm to table, with your family by your side.

Another exciting, and tasty, outing is to head to that local

apple orchard. Be sure to bring the wagon and get picking.

Many orchards allow you to taste the different apple offerings

so you can choose your favorites before picking. The kids are

sure to get a workout running about, climbing ladders and

picking the apples. As a treat, once you’ve arrived back at

home, make caramel apples and let the kids decorate with

candy. Make homemade apple chips and applesauce—

what kid doesn’t love applesauce? And plan on preparing

and canning some of the apples for those warm, delicious

homemade Thanksgiving and Christmas pies. Your guests

are sure to be impressed.

Fall is the time for fields of sunflowers, corn mazes and

haunted houses. Running through a corn maze, getting

“lost” or finding oneself at a dead end, offers a thrill for most

children. And as long as you go during daylight hours, it’s

sure to leave them smiling once they make their way out.

Most children love excitement, and a haunted house provides

just that. Just be sure that the haunted house you enter is age

appropriate for your child, as there’s no fun in having your

child leave in tears.

Many towns hold fall festivals and carnivals, where you

can experience a little bit of everything “fall” including

delicious fall foods to warm you up, autumn décor for sale,

entertainment, hayrides and more. Get in the spirit and

make sure to attend one and support your local community

and businesses.

Many think of springtime when it comes to gardening. But

the best time of the year to plant bulbs is in the fall, six to

eight weeks before the first hard frost makes its appearance.

Bundle up the kiddos, break out the gardening gloves

and tools, and make an afternoon of fun which all will be

rewarded in the spring with a yard full of beautiful, colorful

tulips and daffodils. The kids are sure to be proud of the part

they played when they see the first blooms of spring.

IT’S FOOTBALL SEASON

Time to get cookin’

- BY TROY LOUIS CHANDLER -

Fall is here, and it’s that time of year most everyone has been anticipating all year—football season. And what’s

better than watching the game with friends and family than with some great food to satisfy your hunger for the

game. I have to admit, I’m not the biggest football fan, but I do enjoy cooking up my family’s favorite football snacks

(I’m a chef, so it’s kind of expected of me) while they enjoy the game in the other room. Below you will find several

of my easy-to-make football favorites. You’ll enjoy them so much, you might forget about the big game all together!

Now get cooking!

SLOW-COOKED PULLED PORK SLIDERS

In your favorite crock pot, InstaPot, Dutch oven or cast-iron pot, braise

pork shoulder until fork tender with cumin, chili powder and a touch of

liquid smoke. Reduce or remove liquid and combine shredded pork with

your best barbecue sauce. Serve with grain mustard and chopped pickles

on slider buns.

BEST BREAD AND CHEESE BOWL

Carve out a fresh sourdough bread bowl, saving the top and "guts." Mix

the following ingredients and stuff the bread bowl, replacing the top

and using bread "guts" as dipping vessels. Here’s how we do it: one pack

Boursin cheese, 1/2 pound shredded white cheddar; juice of one lemon;

juice of one orange; two chipotle peppers with adobo sauce, minced;

three garlic cloves, minced; and a 1/4 cup honey. This recipe will create

two to four bread bowls, depending on size. You can also substitute mini

dinner rolls for smaller servings if you plan on having a lot of company.

MINI FISH TACOS WITH COLESLAW

Purchase your favorite mini corn taco skins and fish. Mahi-mahi

(dorado) is an amazing choice, but your favorite fish will do. Grill or

deep fry the tortillas and grill the fish. Then use this amazing coleslaw

recipe and garnishes to make the best fish tacos on the planet, or at least

in your cul de sac. You’ll need one part rice wine vinegar and one part

sugar. Bring to just a boil and turn off. Cool and set aside. Then mix your

concoction with your slaw to blow the minds of your guests. You can also

add a touch of mayo for a creamier slaw. You're welcome.

ASHEVILLE

Gilded Age culture and fall foliage on the Blue Ridge Parkway

Story By Marguerite Cleveland

Photos Courtesy of ExploreAsheville

Not many people realize that one of the founders of modern forestry in the United States was a

Vanderbilt. The Biltmore Estate was cobbled together from George Vanderbilt’s land purchases

in the Asheville area. Many were farms where the land was considered worn out. Fredrick Law

Olmsted (design Central Park), who was hired to landscape the property, was not impressed with

the 125,000 acres which were in a deplorable condition. Vanderbilt hired Gifford Pinchot to manage the forests

on the estate, and he later became the first Chief of the United States Forest Service. Later on, the first school

of forestry in North America, The Biltmore School of Forestry, was operated on the estate by Dr. Carl A.

Schenck. After Vanderbilt’s death, around 86,000 acres of the estate were sold to the United State Forest Service

to establish the Pisgah National Forest, one of the first in the Eastern United States.

Most fall foliage destinations tend to have a peak week when hordes of people descend upon the area to see

autumn flora at its best. The wooded areas surrounding Asheville, North Carolina, and the forests observed

from the Blue Ridge Parkway have one of the longest and most diverse fall foliage seasons in the world.

The Biltmore Estate

With its history of forestry, the Biltmore Estate is the perfect destination for a fall foliage trip, and you can stay

right on the estate. The Village Hotel provides a casual-style stay and is close to the winery and other shopping

and dining activities. But for a true Biltmore experience you need to step it up and stay at the Inn on Biltmore

Estate. It is luxurious with interiors that make you feel like you are a guest

in the Biltmore House. Enjoy rooms decorated like Gilded Age visitors

enjoyed. The staff is outstanding and provides warm southern hospitality

without any stuffiness. There are a variety of dining options on the estate

with the ingredients for many dishes grown or produced right on the

estate.

During your stay in Asheville, make sure to allow plenty of time to tour

and experience all the estate has to offer. Your admission includes a selfguided

tour of the historic Biltmore House and access to the grounds.

There are a variety of optional add-on tours. The Audio Guide to

Biltmore is well worth the $15 extra cost with its music and description of

what life was like when the home was first built. The Legacy of the Land

Tour gets you behind the scenes on the estate while you learn more about

the history of the land. Visit the Outdoor Adventure Center to book

fun outside activities, many you won’t see anywhere else. Enjoy a ride

with Belgian draft horses pulling an elegant carriage or try your hand at

falconry and learn how to interact with a hawk or falcon. You may have

been to many wineries before, but the Biltmore Winery is really special

with its self-guided tour and many tasting options. The winery is the

most visited in the country and produces about 150,000 cases annually.

Blue Ridge Parkway

The Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the most scenic roads in America. With

fall foliage peaking in October, the parkway is a wonder to behold. It

meanders for a total of 469 miles following the ridge of the Blue Ridge

Mountains leading to stunning views. The parkway utilizes a milepost

system which makes it easier to track where you are on the parkway.

Before heading out to the parkway, grab a picnic lunch from the Well-

Bred Bakery & Café, which prides itself on fresh sandwiches, salads and

bakery treats.

Heading south from Asheville on the parkway, stop at milepost 382 and

tour the Blue Ridge Parkway Visitor Center for information, maps and

a movie about the area. Here you’ll also find the Folk Art Center for

demonstrations and eclectic local folk art.

Plan to hike Mount Pisgah while exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Mount Pisgah in the distance. The estate

once stretched all the way to this peak. The

5,721-foot summit can be accessed from

milepost 407.6 on the parkway. The moderate

2.6-mile round-trip trail will take you to an

observation platform which affords stunning

views of the mountains and, on a clear day,

Asheville is visible.

Asheville

Allow a day to spend time exploring Asheville, a funky mountain city

with a rich architectural history. Its many Art Deco, Beaux Arts and

Neoclassical buildings are now home to locally owned shops, more than

30 art galleries and an exciting culinary scene. Throw in some live music

and you have a special destination which will draw you back again and

again.

A fun way to tour the city is to experience the Urban Trail, which is

essentially the city’s outdoor history museum. The tour is 1.7 miles long

and has 30 stations that highlight the city’s historic and cultural stories.

At each stop you will find a bronze plaque and a piece of art. Learn about

notable characters, many whom you may recognize such as Thomas

Wolfe, F. Scott Fitzgerald and O. Henry. Start at the front of Pack Place

on Asheville’s Park Square for Plaque #1, “Walk Into History.” Set aside

a couple of hours to complete the tour while allowing plenty of time to

have lunch and shop.

Another unique Asheville activity is to book a foraging tour with No

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

Taste Like Home. This interesting tour will take you out into the forests

near Asheville to forage 12 to15 edibles. It also includes a cooking

demonstration and tasting. Later head to a local restaurant to enjoy an

appetizer made from what you foraged. Three days before the tour you

will receive an email with your meeting location based on the weather

and what foods are available to forage.

For a truly spectacular meal, dine at Vue 1913 in the historic Omni Grove

Park Inn. This is a AAA Four Diamond Restaurant and consistent winner

of the Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence. The menu is a haute

cuisine take on Southern favorites with plenty of rustic, local ingredients.

With beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this Art-Deco dining

room is stunning. It is well worth the splurge.

Fall is a peak time to visit the Asheville area, so plan accordingly and book

reservations not only for lodging but also for restaurants and activities. If

possible, plan to visit on weekdays when you will experience less people.

The Explore Asheville website is an excellent tool to plan your visit. There

are many posts that highlight local small businesses and the people that

make Asheville such a great place to visit. It also has an interactive fall

color map and fall leaves schedule to help you plan the perfect time to

visit.

The Halloween Party of the Season

It’s sure to be a fright

BY JILLIAN CHANDLER

JOIN SECOND CHANCE ANIMAL ADOPTION ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT FOR THEIR

BOOVILLE 2019 HALLOWEEN HAUNTED HOUSE. An evening of fun and excitement

awaits for those of all ages and promises to be a spook-tacular event you won’t

soon forget.

This year marks SCCA's seventh annual howl-oween event, which takes place

Thursday, October 31 from 5 to 9pm at Second Chance Animal Adoption, located

at 6651 Lincoln Street in Bonners Ferry. Kids of all ages will enjoy a night of spooky

and fun activities including games, a haunted house, hay rides, fortune telling

and more. There will be candy and game prizes, and there will be cider, cocoa

and cookies available to everyone in the theater where fortune telling and spooky

stories will be read.

“Come venture down our boardwalk and hop on the BooVille Express, ride through

BooVille and find yourself taking a stroll through Doomsberg Park, a creepy park

built on an ancient cemetery,” says C.K. Clark, a staff member at Second Chance

Animal Adoption. “Since it is Halloween, feel free to dress up and get spooky!”

Around 600 people attended last year’s event, which extended over a three-day

period, and though this year’s event is one night only, the SCAA staff is looking

forward to another great turnout.

They are still in need of volunteers for this year’s event. For additional information

about the event as well as sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, you can call

SCAA at 208.267.7504.

As always, admission is by donation at the front gate, and all proceeds go to

helping all the animals of Second Chance. “Our Howl-oween event is our biggest

fundraiser of the year,” says C.K. “The proceeds go to food and medical costs for

any animal that comes through Second Chance.”

A fun evening for all ages, and all for a great cause, mark your calendars to attend

BooVille.
