LOOKING TO REMODEL?

What to expect during the process

BY NIKKI LUTTMANN, SEVEN BEE INTERIORS

FOR SANDPOINT FURNITURE, CARPET ONE AND SELKIRK GLASS AND CABINETS

love January. The stress of the holidays has passed,

I

and the new year is a clean slate. It seems like the

perfect time to start fresh on a project—whether

that’s developing a healthy eating plan or fixing

up our homes. Last year, my husband and I decided that we

would concentrate on remodeling the exterior, including new

windows, doors and siding, and I’m happy to report that we

were able to achieve our goals and stay married in the process.

That’s not always an easy feat—remodeling or building a home

can be stressful.

Many of my clients underestimate the amount of stress a

construction project may cause. Especially for those who have

no option but to stay in their home during the process, it can be

very trying indeed. Before you undertake a remodeling project,

I urge you to educate yourself on the process. Following are a

few common home projects and some of the things required

for each one.

Whole house painting. This can be very rewarding and perhaps

the most common of all remodeling projects. However, before

you hire that painter, keep in mind that this process can be very

invasive. All artwork must come off the walls, furniture must

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

be moved to the center of each room, light fixtures should be

removed, and floors and furniture will be tarped off. As well,

windows and doors may be taped over (if they are spraying),

and the air may be fairly toxic for a few days. Ask your painter

how long the process will take and ensure that they can be at

your house for the time it takes to finish, not breaking off to

different jobs in between. Also ask the method they will use to

paint—rollers, brushes or spray—and ask if the paint they use

is low in VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions. This will

help you determine whether you should stay or just check into

a hotel room for the week!

Kitchen remodeling. This can include new cabinetry, flooring,

countertops, paint, etc. Sounds like fun, right? But if not

scheduled properly, with a kitchen remodel, days can easily

turn into weeks of no appliances, no countertops and cooking

exclusively outdoors on a barbecue! This might be OK in

the summer months, but in the winter, it can be hard to live

without the ease and comforts of your kitchen. Working with

experienced contractors and sub-contractors and having your

decisions made ahead of time are key to keeping your sanity

throughout the process.

Milgard Windows offers Energy Star ratings that will keep your home

warm and cozy during the cold winter months and Save You Money. Our

professional team offers you FREE estimates s and we can professionally

install any time of the year to upgrade your windows and doors.

I love January. The stress of the holidays has

passed, and the new year is a clean slate.

New flooring. This is one of my favorite

changes to any home, and there are some

wonderful options out there. LVP (luxury

vinyl plank) for example, comes in many

colors and subtypes, and boasts a fairly easy

installation process. An entire home can be

installed in LVP in less than a week if you are

dealing with experienced flooring installers.

Opposite this product on the spectrum of

installation, however, would be sand and finish

hardwood. This is an amazing look that truly

sets your home apart, but it can be very timeconsuming.

First the wood is installed, then

sanded, then layers of product are applied in

coats. Finally, the whole thing has to cure for

two days before furniture can be put back on.

After that, it takes a full month for the new

floor to fully cure and harden.

Bathroom tile. This is one category that

truly depends on the professionalism of your

installer. If you are removing old tile, this is

best done by a professional, as they will be

able to remove the old tile with minimum

damage to the subfloor or walls behind. I can’t

stress enough the importance of appropriate

waterproofing in showers and wet areas. If your

installer is good, he will be able to save you a

lot of headache down the road in good prep,

waterproofing and overall tidiness. But, keep

in mind, they will need access to water for their

tile saw and a relatively enclosed, preferably

heated, space for cutting. Oftentimes, a garage

is perfect, but please don’t expect your tile

installer to set up their wet saw outside in the

middle of winter in freezing temperatures.

This isn’t fair to them as craftsmen, and I know

that my fingers do not work their best if they

are frozen solid—and neither will your tile

installer’s!

In next month’s article, we will continue the list

of projects, so stay tuned and have a happy new

year!

As we come into colder winter

temperatures, we are all at risk of

our pipes freezing, and that can

lead to pipes bursting. We have

suggestions if you find that your pipes may be

frozen and list of suggestions on preventing

pipes from freezing.

One of the first signs that you have a problem,

and even possibly a frozen pipe, is no running

water coming out of your faucets when you

attempt to turn it on. If this does happen,

check to see that your home’s water supply is

still turned on and that there are no obvious

leaks anywhere. If your search concludes that

your pipes are more than likely frozen, but

not yet burst, we recommend calling your

local plumber to help thaw your pipes. This is

a good path for those who are unsure if they

can safely thaw pipes themselves, are unaware

of where the frozen pipes are located or can’t

access the area of the house where the pipes

are frozen.

But we also want to help prevent frozen

pipes, so be proactive and follow these

recommendations:

• Make sure all pipes that are exposed to

the extreme temperatures are drained. This

includes, but not limited to, swimming pool

and exterior sprinkler system supply lines.

• Disconnect any hoses from the exterior of

your house. Drain the hoses and store them in

the garage.

• Insulate the area around light fixtures,

vents and exterior faucets. This helps prevent

freezing temperatures from gaining access to

your home.

• Open cabinet doors that have plumbing

running in them. This helps the warm air

to circulate around the pipes, keeping them

warm.

• Allow your faucets to drip cold water on

the coldest days. The movement will make it

harder for the water to freeze inside the pipes.

• Never let your thermostat fall below 55

degrees Fahrenheit in your house. Whether

night or day, make sure that your home’s

temperature never dips below freezing. This

is one of the leading causes of frozen pipes,

as people do not want to pay for heating

their homes when they are not at home. But,

turning your heater off could lead to a risky

game of frozen pipe roulette.

• Check all exterior seals on windows, doors,

garage doors, etc., and complete any necessary

repairs to make sure no heat is escaping your

house.

Frozen water pipes and the damage they can

cause are a serious risk for people in areas

where the temperatures dip below freezing,

especially for an extended time period.

With the holidays out of the way, now is an

inconvenient time for there to be a burst

pipe or added expense that isn’t planned or

budgeted for. Unfortunately, that is when these

things tend to happen. So, be sure to take some

time to walk the perimeter of your home and

look at and investigate your pipes to prevent

what could happen.

We know that living in the Northwest, our

weather is not the most predictable. It's best

to be prepared.

according to Rhonda. For those who are unaware,

Lydia’s is open to the general public as well.

Over the years Priest Rivers Ministries has grown

and expanded. Today they have three shelters—

Ruth’s House, Esther’s House and Rebekah’s

Room, which offers long-term shelter for those

who need a place to stay longer than just an

emergency situation. In addition, they have office

locations in Priest River, Sandpoint and Spirit

A Passion to Serve Those in Need

By Jillian Chandler

"WE’RE

ENCOURAGING

THESE WOMEN

AND GIVING

THEM THEIR

SELF-RESPECT

BACK."

PRIEST RIVER MINISTRIES CONTINUES ITS LOVING MISSION

has done so many amazing things

for us.”

“God

It is inspiring to witness the incredible

people in North Idaho who give of

themselves selflessly to impact others in a positive

way; devoting countless hours to help improve the

lives of those in our local communities. And one such

organization that works toward its mission every hour

of every day is Priest River Ministries - Advocates

for Women—which strives to do all it can for the

betterment of women who have endured, and are

continuing to be affected, by physical and sexual abuse

and violence.

Serving victims from Bonner, Boundary and the

northern part of Kootenai counties, Priest River

Ministries continues to be a blessing for those women

and children in need throughout these communities

for more than 17 years.

“It is an amazing miracle to see God work in this

ministry that started in 2002 as a bible study for women

who had or were experiencing domestic or sexual

violence,” says Rhonda Encinas, executive director.

“Now we shelter over 150 women and children and

their pets per year.”

Priest River Ministries receives no assistance from

the county, state or government to run their shelter

program. Rhonda and her team are dependent on the

support of foundational grants, businesses, churches,

corporations and individuals. She adds that their

greatest need is more volunteers in all three offices to

accomplish their mission, as there continues to be so

much need, and it continues to increase, everywhere.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

“Our volunteers are the backbone to this organization’s

success, receiving little recognition,” attests Rhonda.

“But they provide immeasurable kindness as they live

out their service to God at Priest River Ministries -

Advocates for Women.”

At its inception, Priest River Ministries was made

up of just six members and acted as a support group

for women who were victims of sexual assault and

domestic violence. As the ministry for women and

children grew stronger, the team at Priest River

Ministries determined that the need was so great

for these women and children that they turned their

attention to doing all they could to try and find ways to

help them. “We shifted a majority of the things we did

to help these women and children who were suffering,”

declares Rhonda.

“Domestic violence happens to one in three women,

so everyone knows somebody who has experienced

this—or is that somebody,” Rhonda says. “Through

Priest River Ministries, we’re encouraging these women

and giving them their self-respect back. We’re helping

them to make good, healthy decisions for themselves

and their children—a happy life free of violence. To not

be afraid every day. That makes healthy communities,

healthier schools, healthier places to work at.”

Priest River Ministries received their nonprofit 501(c)

(3) status in 2006 and opened their first shelter, Ruth’s

House, more than a decade ago in 2008. Once Ruth’s

House was established, Lydia’s Place was born. “There

were so many women leaving situations with nothing,”

says Rhonda. “That’s what instigated Lydia’s.” Here,

those in need will find clothing, bedding, blankets,

linens, towels, children’s furniture (from baby baths

“When mothers are struggling to buy clothes,

diapers and formula for their children, being able

to supply these things every month for them, free

of charge, is truly rewarding,” says Rhonda.

“Being able to do that is important. When we can

reduce that stress, we can reduce violence.

"Between Priest River, Spirit Lake and Sandpoint,

just in our clothing supply, just those in crisis, we

see over 450 people a month,” states Rhonda. “And

we never charge for anything; our counseling,

childcare, all the supplies we give out.”

Rhonda is excited to announce that Priest River

Ministries recently moved their Sandpoint office

to a much larger facility at 502 North Second

Street downtown! You will find them on the first

(bottom) floor of the Life Choices Pregnancy

Center. Now with three office spaces, this is

where those in Sandpoint and the surrounding

communities can also find their free clothing and

supply room.

“We are thrilled to be working alongside this

amazing nonprofit, as many of our clients

intersect,” smiles Rhonda. In addition, they have

opened Tabitha's Closet, where they provide

children's clothing sizes 12 months and up, as

well as free household and personal supplies.

The office and closet are open Monday through

Wednesday, noon to 4pm, to the general public,

while counseling and paralegal assistance is

available by appointment.

Priest River Ministries - Advocates for Women

is helping to save lives and aid in a brighter, safer

future for women and their children. If you are

looking to volunteer or make a donation to Priest

River Ministries, Rhonda invites you to stop by

their office. For those who are seeking assistance

or know someone who is in an unhealthy and

unsafe situation, please don’t hesitate to call

208.448.2800.

“We want to try and help prevent these situations

as much as we can,” affirms Rhonda. “The

more people who engage, the more people who

volunteer, the more we can stop these assaults.”

Fry Healthcare Foundation’s mission is to serve the ongoing

needs of Boundary Community Hospital and Extended

Care Facility. “Our fundraising

efforts directly impact the health

of our community through

necessary purchases that allow the hospital

to maintain the highest standards of health

care and state-of-the-art equipment,” says

Lauren Kuczka, marketing and community

relations at BCH.

Coming February 8 is Fry Healthcare’s

annual Festival of Hearts Gala. Held at the

Kootenai River Inn, the Gala aims to raise

funds for 3D Mammogram equipment for

Boundary Community Hospital.

For an American woman, there is a one in

eight chance that she will develop breast

cancer in her lifetime. In the past, the

screening rates for annual mammograms

in Boundary County have been among

the lowest in the state of Idaho. The Fry

Healthcare Foundation is working to

change that statistic and give the women

of Boundary County access to lifesaving

technology. The 3D mammogram

equipment at BCH will make early detection possible for more women,

which equals more lives saved.

The gala features a four-course dinner with

wine, dessert dash and live auction. In

addition to participating in funding the 3D

Mammogram equipment by attending the

event, the community has the opportunity

to help purchase other necessary

technology. This year, donors participating

in Fund-an-Item will be supporting the

purchase of the BiPap Ventilator System

for Cardiopulmonary and Emergency use.

This device can save lives by providing

mechanical ventilation (artificial breathing)

in an emergency.

Fundraiser for

Paisley

COMMUNITY GENEROSITY RAISES

SPIRITS AND ELEVATES HOPE

BY HANNAH SUCSY WILLIS

For the second time in her short life, second grader Paisley Choate is

battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She is currently receiving

treatment at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane, preparing

to receive a bone marrow transplant in Seattle in early 2020. And

while there is nothing anyone can do to lessen the gravity of what her family

is going through, there are literally thousands of people who have pitched in to

carry a piece of the burden in some small way.

Anyone who has ever had surgery, been a hospital patient for any length of

time or dealt with a chronic medical condition knows that multiple bills coming

from multiple departments is the norm. Treating cancer carries its own massive

price tag. Corey Choate, Paisley's dad, said that the therapy needed to prepare

her for bone marrow transplant will cost well over $1 million. Even on the other

side, after cancer has been defeated, Paisley will require regular checkups for

15 more years. And the cost doesn’t end there. Travel to the hospital, lost time

from work and other non-medical expenses in addition to bills from doctors,

hospitals and labs add up to become a huge financial burden. Even with medical

insurance, the financial toll is mind-blowing.

And yet, despite the details of this situation that are no doubt overwhelming,

the first thing Corey Choate said to me was how incredibly blessed and thankful

they are. The help of the community has been critical in making it through this.

Last year, after Paisley’s initial diagnosis, the Bonners Ferry Eagles Club held a

fundraiser breakfast, and Tony of Two Tones Cafe held a benefit dinner. Since

her recent relapse, Chad at the Naples General Store is having a raffle, and

Nancy Croll is helping with donations through her store. Each one of those

fundraisers, of course, is only as successful as the people making donations,

coming to eat, buying raffle tickets, etc. Without a doubt, a tribe is needed to

come together in a situation of need like this.

This is one of those times where a small town shows that they have the force of

a small army.

The Paisley Choate Online Auction Fundraiser is a group on Facebook and

has well over a 10th of the population of Boundary County involved. This

fundraiser was started by the caring staff at Naples Elementary, where Paisley

attends when she isn’t receiving treatment. As of press time, approximately

250 items had been donated and the bidding reaching more than $20,000.

Baked goods, handmade jewelry, spa services, plumbing labor, a room design

makeover, oil changes, topsoil, a Texas lake tour, and an Okie Noodling trip

are just a few of the creative donations. A couple of selfless individuals even

donated huckleberries, huckleberry jam and huckleberry cheesecake! Though

the auction has now ended, monetary donations can still be made at Mountain

West Bank.

In a time where social media is the battlefield for opposing opinions, this

was a refreshing and encouraging gift for our community to see each other’s

generosity. My prayer is that each act of generosity or encouragement would be

multiplied and that all of it added together, along with every other prayer lifted

up on behalf of Paisley, would equal the one thing that her family needs more

than anything: hope.

BAYLEE BLACKMORE

Baylee Blackmore enjoys many of

the simple things in life: family,

friends, food and her favorite sport—

basketball. A Bonners Ferry High School

senior, Baylee is in the midst of her final

season for the Badgers. She’s accomplished a

lot during her playing career including being

named to the IML team and honored as an

Idaho Top Scholar during her junior year.

Baylee isn’t the tallest competitor on the floor,

and although she admits that has created

some challenges for her, she’s learned a

valuable lesson about overcoming adversity.

“A life lesson I learned from being involved

in sports is that you’re not always going to be

the best, so all you can do is work hard and

try your best,” she said.

While she’s suited up for many games, some

of her favorite memories are hitting halfcourt

shots, seeing her team reach the state

senior

tournament and the downtime just hanging

out with her teammates. For Baylee, the

game of basketball provides a thrill like no

other form of competition.

“I enjoy playing basketball for the adrenaline

rush after the tip, the fast pace of the games

and the teamwork,” she said.

As Baylee begins to plan her future post high

school, she envisions herself attending BYU -

Idaho to get her associates degree in biology.

She won’t be competing at the collegiate

level in basketball but still hopes to find

intramural sports so she can keep playing the

game she loves.

Once she’s earned her degree, Baylee will be

looking for a school that has a sonography

and radiology program so she can continue

her interest in science at a higher level.

IN HER WORDS...

“I enjoy playing basketball for the adrenaline rush after the tip, the fast pace of the games

and the teamwork."

Turn the corner on Church Street in

Downtown Sandpoint, and it’s hard not

to notice the large grey modern building

that now houses the Kochava offices. The space

used to house Inkwell—an office machine rental

and office supply store—as well as a few doctors’

offices. Its upstairs was home to the local high

school baseball team’s batting practice during

the winter months. Before Kochava purchased it

and moved its offices from the former Columbia

Bank location in 2016, the large piece of real

estate was rather rundown and far under serving

its potential. “It wasn’t contributing to the local

economy, and it’s a very large building in the

middle of downtown,” says Kimberly Manning,

the senior director of brand for the company and

wife of CEO Charles Manning.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

Originally from California and then Washington,

D.C., the couple decided to make Sandpoint their

home back in 2005, driven by the desire to create

a better lifestyle in a smaller community with

natural resources like the lake and the mountain.

“No place had the combination of amenities

that Sandpoint does. It’s really special, it’s really

unique, and that led to our choice to be here,”

says Manning. They arrived with a vision in place

of starting a company that would fill the void in

mobile analytics and attribution.

“We had already been hearing for several years, if

your company is internet based, you really should

be able to do it from anywhere. We kind of went

into it thinking, ‘I get it in theory, we really have

no idea if it will be proven out,’” smiles Manning.

Over eight years since the founding of the

company in 2011 and offices all over the world

later, they’ve proven this theory cannot just work,

it can thrive.

They named the company Kochava—a word that

means star in Hebrew. “The idea is that we look

in the night sky and you can see millions of stars

with the naked eye, but there are billions that

you can’t see, unless you have the right tool,” says

Manning. “The stars are like data. You have these

data points—some of which you can easily see—

but many multiples more that you can’t without

the right tools. Kochava provides those tools for

our customers.”

The decision to start a tech company in the small

mountain town of Sandpoint was no easy feat—

partners in the Silicon Valley almost scoffed at

the idea. But Charles Manning was dedicated

to proving the fact that you could in fact work

from anywhere—and do it well. “There was this

forgone conclusion that it wasn’t possible, and

that really impacted him to dig in and prove

otherwise,” recalls Kimberly Manning. “That is

underrecognized as a source of success for the

company.”

There were benefits and drawbacks to the

decision to base the company here. There is a

much smaller work pool to choose from, and

travel is not always easy. On the flipside, the cost

is much lower, and there is less competition.

“There’s only been a handful of serious

competitors in the core space of attribution

and analytics since our beginning, and we have

held our own against those competitors, sort of

against the odds because we’re much smaller,”

says Manning. “We are an anomaly in that we’re

located in a place like we are.”

Being a smaller company has its perks. For one,

it’s able to adapt quickly and react more nimbly

to customer needs. For another, it’s able to

prioritize quality of life in its location offerings.

Kochava might not have the huge private campus

companies like Google and Facebook have in the

Silicon Valley, but it’s been able to make the city of

Sandpoint its campus, and to great success. “That

really was the vision, allowing Sandpoint to be the

campus and putting the company in the middle of

it.” Manning laughs, “I think we really contribute

to happy hour in Sandpoint.”

Location is at the center of Kochava’s culture.

Recruiting may be difficult this far from a

large tech center and university programs that

specialize in computer science, but retention is

high. Employees who are here really want to be

here.

“If they can have a relevant job working on

interesting global technology and live where

they want to live, they’re very happy about that

combination,” says Manning. “So we tend to have

a company culture that is one of gratitude and

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

hard work and willingness to dedicate themselves

to what they’re doing here, and I think that is hard

to quantify but it’s very unique. That’s a really

good foundation for a great team.”

Employees at Kochava embrace the mountain

lifestyle. They are in Sandpoint because they want

to be here. Skiing, mountain biking, running,

lake sports—all are central to the lifestyle of

Sandpoint, and people have unparalleled access to

these activities, access they wouldn’t have living in

a place like San Francisco. “It costs more, it takes

longer, it’s crowded, it’s difficult,” muses Manning.

“Sandpoint is a breath of fresh air compared to

that.”

Every year Kochava hosts Kochava Summit for

their customers and partners called with the

aim of highlighting “Why Sandpoint?” “We felt

like if you could spend a day or two here, you

would get it,” smiles Manning. Now catering

to a couple hundred people and at capacity, the

event includes seminars, workshops and local

outdoor activities. “It’s become a really soughtafter

industry event,” says Manning. Kochava

partners with local businesses for the event, and

even works with Schwietzer to offer its guests an

experience on the mountain. The Kochava team

estimates the impact on the local economy from

the three days in February the Summit convenes

is around $250,000—a key boon to the local

economy during a time of the year not much else

is happening.

Kochava works to get involved in the Sandpoint

communities in other ways beyond its location

and Kochava Summit. It supports various

nonprofits in the city like the Panhandle Alliance

for Education—the focus for its giving is quality

of life in Sandpoint and education.

“There are a lot of people in this town who

volunteer a tremendous amount of time to work

on what they believe in, and where we can come

in and partner with the people who are on the

ground doing that work, we really enjoy being

able to do that,” says Manning.

Because Sandpoint is so small, the results of

charitable giving can actually be seen and

appreciated. “If we were in a larger city, many

of the things that we do would be a drop in the

bucket,” says Manning. “Here you can make a big

impact with what we’re able to contribute, and it’s

very rewarding. ... It’s a great honor and privilege

for us and for the team in general to be able to

support the things that we care about and that

make Sandpoint great.”

Insurance steering tactics you need to know:

• Telling you they can’t guarantee the repairs if you don’t take it to

one of their shops. It’s the shop, not the insurance, that provides

workmanship warranties.

• Telling you you may be responsible for additional costs, despite

the fact the law states they must cover all costs to restore your

vehicle to pre-loss condition.

• Telling you they can’t work with a certain shop.

• Telling you they won’t pay for your rental.

• They will say anything to make you think you are making the

wrong decision by not choosing their direct repair (preferred) shop

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

In May 2018, Shane Florea introduced North Idaho

Collision Repair to the Bonners Ferry Community. An

independently owned and operated collision repair

facility, Shane provides customers auto body repair

with accident assistance. Not only does NICRC deliver

high-quality vehicle repairs, they offer a lifetime warranty

on all qualified repairs and a personal service guarantee.

“If we don’t meet your repair and customer experience

expectations, we will make it right,” affirms Shane.

From the moment you walk into North Idaho Collision

Repair Center, you will notice a difference from other body

repair shops. From the clean, inviting environment where

customers come first to the state-of-the-art facility, clients

and their vehicles are more than just a repair to Shane and

his team.

“Being in an accident is stressful, from the accident itself to

making sure all your loved ones and you are safe, and then

being left with a wrecked car,” states Shane. “It’s a situation

that no one wants to be in, and it’s a situation that we don’t

like seeing our customers in. The quality that makes NICRC

unique is that we are there for our clients. Our clients and

our customer service are what drives our core business values.”

From towing and insurance assistance to explaining the repair process

and customer pick-up once the vehicle is complete, North Idaho Collision

Repair Center is there to guide each client every step of the way.

“Every person who comes to NICRC is not only our client but also our

neighbor,” affirms Shane. “Bonners Ferry is an amazing community with

people who care about and watch after each other. We bring that spirit of

community and care to our business each day.”

With NICRC’s recent completion of an extensive I-CAR certification,

they provide the best available repair technology and fully I-CAR trained

and certified technicians. All repairs are guided by standardized, qualityfocused

procedures that follow vehicle manufacturer repair guidelines,

ensuring a quality repair. Even better, once your repairs are completed,

Shane makes sure his clients know that he and his team will stand behind

their repairs by offering a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty.

“We let our clients know that it does matter where they take their

vehicle for repairs. It matters in the quality of the repair. It matters in the

customer service and convenience. And it matters for the community.

Are you going to another town or are you staying local?

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

26 27

“We deeply hope that people in our community never experience an

accident; but if it does happen and they ask themselves ‘Now what,’

we want them to remember that NICRC is committed to taking the

frustration and confusion out of an already stressful situation,” states

Shane.

It is important to know that if or when you are involved in an accident,

you have the right to determine where you want your vehicle towed and

where you want your vehicle repaired. The insurance company does not

have the right to force you to use any “preferred” repair facility, according

to Shane. “After an accident, you are under no obligation to take your

vehicle to the shop your insurance company says to. It’s your choice, no

matter what they might say to you.”

A business built on honesty, integrity and doing the right thing, if you

have been in an accident, through a storm or just want to freshen up your

vehicle’s appearance, North Idaho Collision and Repair Center is ready to

help you get back on the road thanks to the experience and dedication of

Shane and his team.

“Our greatest reward is being there, through employee education,

customer service and just love of our community, working for our clients

and their cars and insurance companies,” smiles Shane.

Exhibits continue to wow

BY COLIN ANDERSON

PHOTOS COURTESY OF LEMAY - AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM

If you’ve meandered through one of the many car shows of the

Northwest, you’ve probably seen some pretty cool rides. It’s

a great way to get up close to a piece of history. The common

vehicles featured in most of these shows are mid ‘50s to late ‘70s

American-made automobiles. Some shows have rules as to how

old the car must be to be shown, what condition it is in or where it was

made. While these shows can be a lot of fun, especially for those who

grew up driving one of these muscle machines, being able to see a wider

variety of automotive history is a more difficult thing to find. Lucky for

us, North America’s largest continuous “car show” can be found right in

our backyard. And if you’ve never been, you are sure in for a treat.

LeMay - America’s Car Museum is a bucket-list trip for those serious

about automotive history but also a great time for those who know little

to nothing about vehicles of the past or even how a car works; and that’s

the beauty of this place.

“It’s truly multi-generational,” said Ashley Bice, National Strategic

Initiatives Officer with America’s Automotive Trust, a nonprofit

organization aimed at preserving America’s car heritage. “Everyone

walks away with a great experience.”

The ACM collection includes some 300 cars, trucks and motorcycles

inside the 165,000-square-foot complex, with vehicles spanning more

than a century. “It’s all about the celebration of America’s love affair

with the automobile, not one particular vehicle or brand,” said Bice. The

collection varies from some of the earliest models ever made to some of

the newest in luxury, high speed or concept on the market today.

The museum came to be when Harold and Nancy LeMay had amassed

the largest privately owned collection of vehicles and memorabilia in

the world. When asked about his collection, the late Harold LeMay said,

“I don’t go for just the dollar value car. If it is unusual, I like it. So, I am

kind of a maverick, since I am not a dyed-in-the-wool Chevy, Ford or

Duesenberg man. I see it, I like it, I buy it.”

After amassing such a large collection, and seeing the sheer enjoyment

of guests at their annual car show and open house at the couple’s

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

homestead, the LeMays made the decision that instead of seeing their

collection scattered and auctioned off to private owners, it would be

better served as a piece of history that all could enjoy. After more than

a decade of planning, grant writing, fundraising, ups and downs, and

surviving the economic downtown, ground was broken in 2011, and

the museum saw its doors open for good in June of 2012. Since then,

thousands of visitors from all 50 states and 47 countries have passed

through the doors to admire this truly one-of-a-kind collection.

First-time visitors are amazed almost instantly as they walk through the

doors. Most museums typically display only a small portion of their

collections, as many of the rare artifacts are kept in storage and away

from the public eye. Rather unique to LeMay - America’s Car Museum

is that the collection is held in an “open air” setting. Vehicles that aren’t

currently on display in one of the numerous exhibits are still open for

easy public view in the center lower levels of the complex.

While the LeMays are the primary donors to the museum, other cars,

trucks, motorcycles and unique pieces of automotive history have come

from many different sources. According to Bice, two-thirds of the

vehicles on display come from private donors—not just from the area

but across both oceans.

“We had a 1941 Buick go to China for an exhibition and then back to the

museum. Our 1927 La Salle that is currently on display competed in the

2011 Mille Miglia in Italy,” she said.

It’s a unique opportunity for collectors as they have a safe place to display

their car where thousands more people will get to see and experience

it than at a regional car show. It also helps the museum continually

bring in new pieces of history to share as the exhibits rotate often and

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

28 29


showcase different brands, eras and styles.

“You don’t have to be a ‘car guy’ to enjoy this place,

but if you are, there is definitely a lot of eye candy to

enjoy,” said Bice.

Getting the unique autos is often a two-way street.

Sometimes the museum is made aware of a special

car or vehicle that would make a great fit for an

upcoming exhibit, making a request to the owner; and

other times, the vehicle’s owner is made aware of the

museum and wants to be part of sharing its history

with others.

New Year — New Responsibilities

The museum recently wrapped up displaying one of

the more unique collections on the planet. While many

donate a single vehicle or maybe a couple, Brown M.

Maloney loaned LeMay 125 Honda motorcycles from

multiple decades. Maloney was highlighted in the

2019 Master Collector’s Exhibit, which is reserved for

“dedicated enthusiasts whose passion for cars knows

no bounds.” A new Master Collector will be featured

later this year.

The collection at LeMay includes just about anything

you can think of, along with several vehicles and

artifacts you might not have known to exist. One

exhibit might include the earliest Cadillac, Model Ts

and Model As, and around the corner you’ll find a

display of British-made automobiles. Muscle cars and

family wagons, high-end ultra-fast sports cars and

even the foot-powered “Flintmobile” from the 1994

Flintstones movie are on display for guests’ enjoyment.

Life insurance provides financially for the ones you love, if you can’t be there. It can cover outstanding

debt, continue the mortgage payments and maintain your family’s standard of living. Some policies

allow you to borrow against the value for expenses, like college tuition or a down payment on a

home during your lifetime. We have flexible policy options and affordable rates. Our advisors will

help you choose the right type of coverage for your circumstances.

like in the 1950s and ‘60s.

First-time visitors should set aside some time to visit

Lucky’s Garage to learn about Harold LeMay, his passion

for automobiles, how he came to own so many and his

decision to put them on display for all to enjoy. This is a

permanent exhibit paying tribute to those who made it all

possible.

Though initially popular in the south, NASCAR’s following

has grown not just nationwide but has spread to a worldwide

audience. Two-hundred mile per hour super cars dominate

the tracks today, but this sport got its humble beginning

from southern moonshiners tuning engines for a few

extra horsepower in order to avoid the law while running

their illicit alcohol. In the Legends of Motorsports: The

NASCAR story you’ll not only learn about how the sport

began to blossom but see the evolution of race cars, many

of which you’ll recognize from popular drivers throughout

its history.

If you want to take your racing experience up a notch, be

sure to stop by the Speed Zone. Here you are strapped into

a state-of-the-art CXC racing simulator so you can get the

feel of track and slot car racing.

One of the most exciting new exhibits at LeMay is Saleen:

From the Heart of a Racer to America’s Supercar. The

incredible display was unveiled this past fall with Steve

Saleen in attendance. Visitors are treated to a unique

display of Saleen’s rich automotive history spanning over

four decades. You can enjoy a variety of historic vehicles

on display, including his personal racing machines, early

Saleen Mustangs, the Saleen S7 (considered America’s first

supercar), and examples of the company’s new Saleen 1

mid-engine turbocharged sports car and recently unveiled

Saleen 1 GT4 concept race car.

Other exhibits include the opulent rides of the 1930s and a

wing of all British-made autos.

There is no shortage of vehicles to see, but there are also

great opportunities to get hands on and interactive as well.

“We have dedicated spaces for kids and families to really

experience automobiles,” said Bice. These include the

photo car where you can have your picture taken with

a 1923 Buick touring car. There is also the Family Zone

which has multiple interactive pieces for kids to explore.

Here they can study how a car works by looking at an

exposed chassis, build and race pinewood derby cars, get

behind the wheel of a Mustang, and design their own car.

Many school groups have come through the museum, and

there are also family-focused programs as well as adultonly

programs on the calendar. What’s truly amazing is

the museum is run almost entirely on a volunteer basis.

These folks handle everything from tour guides, greeters

and manning various interactive stations to monitoring

the collections and doing general maintenance and upkeep

on the collection.

While many of the museum’s collection will likely never

see outdoor roadways again, that isn’t to say you won’t soon

see and hear some of them rumbling the

streets of the Northwest.

“Our Drive Home program takes vehicles

from the collection and gets them out

on the road driving from one point to

another,” explained Bice.

In fact, part of the collection will take a

unique journey later this year. To recreate

the iconic American road trip, vehicles

from LeMay will be brought to California

in late spring and driven across the

country, eventually landing in Detroit

for the American Auto Show in June. The

cars will be making stops at famous points

of interest and National Parks along the

way. “We really want to keep the hobby

alive, and this is a great opportunity to get

people to see these cars up close, outside,

and appreciate the history,” said Bice.

While any time of year is a great time

to visit, those wanting an even more

unique experience will want to mark

their calendars for the evening of March

you don’t have

to be a ‘car guy’

to enjoy this

place, but if

you are, there

is definitely

a lot of eye

candy to enjoy.

13. Each year, the museum hosts a yearly

party called Drive the Blues Away. This

year’s theme is “Viva Las Vegas.” Guests

can still wander throughout the museum,

but you’ll also be treated to food,

drink and live music as you peruse the

collection. Tickets will be going on sale

soon for this exclusive event.

When the weather turns brighter and

warmer, you’ll find even more fun

outside the museum walls with Cruise

Ins and Drive-In movies featuring a 40-

foot screen. Take a Spin will put you in

a moving car, which could be anything

from a Packard to a vintage fire truck.

There is always something new to find

at LeMay - America’s Car Museum. New

visitors are astonished by the sheer scope

of the place, while members continue to

find new details they might have missed

on previous visits. Nowhere else can you

find a collection of such variety, all thanks

to the incredible generosity of Harold and

Nancy LeMay.


YOU CAN’T

SPREAD IT IF YOU

CAN’T CATCH IT

The importance of vaccinations

Refined Aesthetics

look and feel your best

By Chinna McKechnie, RN,

Infection Prevention Director at

Boundary Community Hospital

Millions of lives are saved each year

with modern medicine, yet millions

still die. In the 16th century, 30

percent of children died before the

age of 15 from measles, diphtheria

or whooping cough. The 17th century saw the death of

nearly 80 percent of the American Native population

from smallpox and measles brought from the European

settlers. In the 1900s, influenza and pneumonia were the

No. 1 killers. These diseases are prevented today with

vaccines.

Vaccines save lives

In 1796, British surgeon Edward Jenner invented the

smallpox vaccine, the world’s first vaccine against any

disease. Widespread rollout of Jenner’s vaccine across

Europe and North America saw that smallpox was

almost completely eliminated by the first half of the

20th century. Efforts were intensified in 1966 to the rest

of the world and finally, by 1977, the last known case

was identified in Somalia. A disease that once caused

millions of deaths around the world simply does not

exist anymore.

Measles vaccine was developed in 1963, and the illness

went from 400,000 cases in the United States each

year to 25,000 in 1970. In 2000, when international

distributions of measles vaccine were rolled out, the

numbers went from 600,000 cases in 2000 to 122,000

cases in 2012.

Herd immunity

There is a concept called herd immunity. When there are

enough people vaccinated against a disease, even those

unable to get the vaccine are protected. You protect

others by protecting yourself. Smallpox is proof that

herd immunity works. Smallpox is the only disease that

has been eradicated so far, but it’s entirely possible to

eradicate all of the nearly 30 diseases that

have vaccinations, including Ebola.

In 1918, the pandemic flu that hit worldwide

affected even our rural neighborhood. It

infected an estimated 500 million people

worldwide and killed nearly 675,000 in the

U.S. alone.

According to Idaho Health and Welfare,

“Rural Idaho suffered terribly from the

1918 Spanish flu pandemic. The mortality

rate was nearly 50 percent in Paris, Idaho.

Quarantines had no real impact on the

spread of the disease. While influenza rates

lessened during the late fall, it was not until

the summer of 1919 that the disease began

to disappear from the state. In Idaho, out of

a reported Native American population of

4,208, there were 650 influenza cases and 75

deaths (case mortality of 11.5 percent).”

The flu vaccine was developed in 1938 by

Jonas Salk and Thomas Francis. It was first

given to the U.S. military forces to protect

the soldiers during World War II. With herd

immunity, we may avoid another pandemic.

Do more for your community

Vaccine-prevented diseases are making

a comeback. Individuals can be more

vulnerable when everyone is not immune.

Many health-care facilities now make it

mandatory for their employees to get the

annual flu vaccine. They do it to protect you.

Do what you can to protect your community.

• Get your flu vaccine.

• Wash your hands.

• Stay home when you are sick.

• Get your child up to date on their vaccines.

Remember, you can’t spread it if you can’t

catch it.

FITNESS GEAR

YOU NEED

START YOUR WORKOUTS RIGHT WITH

THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT

BY TAYLOR SHILLAM

The beginning of a new year is, for most of us, synonymous with a

fresh start. It’s a symbolic hit of the “reset” button in areas of life

like mindfulness, home improvement, education and, of course,

physical fitness.

You’ve seen it happen year after year: January hits and gym memberships

surge, with New Year’s resolutions driving the masses to revamp their

fitness routines with full force.

If fitness is on the forefront of your New Year's resolutions, but sweating

your days away in a crowded gym is not, it might be time for a change

of scenery. With the right equipment, your fitness goals can be reached

within the comfort of your own home.

Resistance bands - You can quite literally start small in terms of your

home fitness equipment with resistance bands. They’re space-efficient

and highly portable; for frequent travelers, the bands will pack easily

into your suitcase, and for those working with limited space, they can

be tucked in a drawer when not in use. The elastic bands add an element

of dynamic strength training to a workout, with the additional level of

challenge depending on the size and stiffness of the band. Smaller, thicker

bands can be set around the knees and ankles during dynamic warmups

and lower body work, while longer, looser bands can be used to

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

strengthen and stretch the upper body. The small bands provide a long

list of opportunities to diversify your workouts.

Jump rope - Don’t underestimate the power of the jump rope. The jump

rope packs a huge cardiorespiratory punch in a small package, and

all you need for an effective workout with one is the right amount of

space. According to ACE Fitness, jumping rope can help improve your

coordination, as it requires you to keep a cadence as you move. Creating

intervals by alternating quicker cadences with slower cadences drives

your body to work hard to adjust, maximizing your effort and burn in

a shorter amount of time. This also encourages cognitive function as the

communication between your brain, wrists and leg muscles keeps your

entire body moving. A study by the Cooper Institute reported that 10

minutes of jumping rope can have the equivalent benefits of a 30-minute

jog, and who wouldn’t want to make that trade?

Suspension trainer/TRX bands - Suspension training is low impact,

highly adjustable and allows you to build strength while perfecting

posture simply by using your body weight. All you need is an anchor

point with the TRX Home System, and nothing works the core muscles

you didn’t know you had like this does. Using your body weight to balance

and stabilize against the anchor point engages your deep core muscles

every step of the way. You can plank, squat, lunge, row, even incorporate

IF FITNESS IS ON THE

FOREFRONT OF YOUR NEW YEAR'S

RESOLUTIONS, BUT SWEATING

YOUR DAYS AWAY IN A CROWDED

GYM IS NOT, IT MIGHT BE TIME

FOR A CHANGE OF SCENERY.


yoga sequences into your TRX training, taking each to the next level

as the support from the straps allows for increased intensity when you

simply change your body angle. Find new workout inspiration in the

TRX app, which releases new workouts regularly and is often included

for one year with your purchase of the bands.

Medicine Ball - Revive your athleticism and demonstrate your power

with the medicine ball. They can be thrown, caught and slammed,

allowing for the explosive movements that will get the heart pumping

and improve overall functional performance. Available in varying

weights and sizes, you’ll have plenty of options—choose a weight that

will undoubtedly make you notice the additional effort with each move

but won’t compromise your form. You can add the medicine ball into

almost any move, including cardio (hold and press it up in jumping

jacks), core work (weighted V-ups and Russian twists) and dynamic

strength (in a push-up, place one hand on the medicine ball as you push

and engage the core). Have fun with it and play an adult fitness version

of wall-ball or grab a partner for a strengthening game of catch. This lowimpact,

high-power tool is a must.

Dumbbells - It’s proven that strength training is the type of workout

that continues burning the most calories long after the workout ends,

due to the higher metabolism associated with increased muscle tone.

However, you don’t need the big machines at the gym to build and tone

muscle. Instead, invest in a pair of dumbbells. Dumbbells allow you to

strengthen every part of the body, keep the muscles guessing and push

past fitness plateaus with the hundreds of different exercises they make

possible. Because they allow for a wider range of motion, they provide a

deeper stretch to the muscle, more room for functional movement and

the ability to isolate more specific muscles to reach your unique goals.

Start with one pair that challenges you but allows you to work through

your desired rep range with good form, then work up in weight from

there.

Sliders - Maybe you’ve never associated doing lunges with “gliding,” but

it’s also likely you’ve never considered incorporating sliders into your

fitness routine. These small discs add a whole new dimension to your

workout, increasing intensity by adding an element of instability that

instantly requires your core to work in sync with the rest of your body

and stay engaged the entire time. Place them under your feet or hands to

increase the work in body-weight moves like planks, mountain climbers

and lunges, taking them to the next level for plank jacks, moving pikes

and three-way side squats. You’ll immediately notice the extra pull in

hard-to-target areas like the lower abs. The discs are budget friendly,

compact and designed to work on both flooring and carpet, allowing

you plenty of room to glide your way into total-body toning.

Yoga mat - If you’ve ever practiced yoga regularly, you know it doesn’t

take long to notice the benefits. It’s a long list including enhanced

flexibility, relaxation, mental clarity, muscle tone and better posture.

Yoga rounds out a great fitness regimen as a form of moving meditation

that strengthens while relieving tight muscles and keeping your nervous

system (including that fight-or-flight mentality) in check. The term

yoga encompasses a wide variety of flows, from the more challenging

and strength-based Power Vinyasa, and there are classes available online

in formats from power yoga to simple stretching. To access online yoga

courses at any time, check out sites like Gaia or Glo that categorize

workouts by skill level, time limit, fitness goals and more. Having a yoga

mat around will provide support in other elements of your workout as

well, from TRX training to ground-based core work.

FROM THE HOME TO THE GYM, STEP INTO YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION IN STYLE

BY ABIGAIL THORPE

The Northwest is the land of outdoor adventure, but when you

aren’t hitting the slopes or paddle-boarding the lake, there’s

plenty more to keep you active—whether it’s a morning

yoga session, CrossFit or the good old gym. Wellness has

increasingly become more of a lifestyle choice than a stand-alone event

in our day-to-day lives, and as working out becomes a central part of our

every day, so too do the clothes we do it in. Leggings aren’t just for the

trail or the studio anymore, and our trainers don’t come off the moment

we walk out the gym door.

According to Allied Market Research, the global activewear market is

experiencing an annual 6.5 percent growth rate and expected to reach

$547 million by 2024. Celebrities like Kate Hudson, Beyoncé and Khloé

Kardashian have created fitness fashion empires of their own and taken

to social media, promoting athletic wear as more of a statement piece

and less an outfit reserved only for the gym.

Whether you’re on the mountain, in the yoga studio or out running

errands this new year, here’s a quick trip down the 2020 runway of

workout fashion trends.

Athleisure and Multifunctional - Workout clothing no longer fits only

one specific need or occasion. Men and women alike are looking for

pieces you can wear on your morning workout and out to run errands

or meet friends for coffee. As lines between the workplace, home and

social spaces become increasingly blurred, activewear has to fit many

purposes—and look good doing it. The birth of athleisure—activewear

you can be athletic in and wear for leisure—has caused the explosion of

athletic-wear consumerism.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

Expect this trend to continue into the new year, with new

design and tech innovation transforming the way we wear our

workout clothing. Bold colors, sleek design and eye-catching

details mean those leggings aren’t just meant for the studio—

they’re making their way into everyday activities, and even

occasionally an evening out.

Retro: Bold and Bright - Everything comes back around, and

workout fashion is no exception to the rule. Expect 2020 athletic

wear to run full force into the ‘90s trend that’s been spreading

across the fashion industry. We’re talking bright neon colors,

statement pieces like matching tracksuit ensembles and big

bold logos. Rebirth of brands like Reebok, Champion and Fila

are part of this flashback to the ‘90s, with original logos front

and center—a fashion statement on and off the track. Despite

the winter chill, midriff exposure continues to flaunt its face;

don’t expect those crop tops to go anywhere.

Sustainable - It may be a flashback to a previous decade

style-wise, but athletic wear is taking a forward-thinking

step when it comes to sustainability. Traditionally, activewear

incorporates a lot of nylon and spandex—materials that take

a lot of energy to produce and don’t break down easily in their

afterlife. Consumers are more aware of the products they

purchase and increasingly look for a company’s sustainability

practices—both in its material and waste use, and its approach

to fair wage and labor practices. Brands like Patagonia and

Athleta are responding in kind, offering new options for the

environmentally and socially conscious consumer. Eighty

percent of Patagonia’s snow collection is made with recycled

fabrics; Athleta offers their “supersonic” leggings made of

recycled nylon fabric; and Adidas' Ultraboost shoe features

material made from recycled plastic found in beach and coastal

communities.

Animal Print - Don’t hide your wild side—if it’s spotted or

striped and looks like a wild animal, it’s runway approved.

Animal print, like zebra and leopard, is hot in the fashion world

this year, and athletic wear is living up to its hype as a wearanywhere

statement genre that keeps up with the times. Maybe,

just maybe, those zebra print leggings will help you run a little

faster.

Technologically Innovative - Pretty is as pretty does, but it

needs to function well too. Multifunctionality is key to workout

clothing these days, which means it needs to hold up as well

at the gym as it does on the couch and seamlessly bridge

the transition between performance and comfort. Athletic

brands have increased their tech performance immensely over

past years, and 2020 is all about innovation. Look for highperformance

fabrics that keep you cool (or warm) and have

sweat-wicking properties for comfort in and out of the gym.

Ultra-sculpt leggings help to define muscle, while no-seam

technology makes that transition from workout to hangout

(literally) seamless. Running and training shoes are sleek and

light—and pack more of a punch when it comes to comfort for

your feet. And of course, don’t forget the actual inclusion of

tech into your gear. Whether it’s hidden pockets for your phone

or built-in tracking, workout fashion is all about making your

life a little easier.

Body Positive - The activewear world is finally catching on that

fit comes in all shapes and sizes. As athletic fashion grows in

popularity, companies are trending toward a more inclusive,

extensive offering that caters to all body types. Established

brands like Nike are increasing their size offerings, while

smaller labels like Good American or Girlfriend Collective are

actively promoting fashion inclusivity and body positivity in

their activewear, ensuring everyone a good fit in their fitness

lifestyle.

EATING RIGHT MADE SIMPLE!

Tips for the entire family

Our bodies and minds work best when they are fueled by healthy foods, but with the busyness

of everyday life, it can be difficult incorporating the right foods into our meals. We’ve compiled

some tips and tricks to help make 2020 a successful year filled with delicious and wholesome

meals and snacks—and make it easy for the entire family!

PLANNING & PREPPING

It’s easy to find oneself scrambling about when it comes to mealtime—

especially dinner. Pizza or takeout anyone? Instead of that drivethrough

window or reaching for your phone to call in your order, what

if you had all the prep work done for that next family meal? Allot one

day a week where you set aside time to plan out your meals for the

week, making a list, shopping for those items then prepping them all so

they’re ready to go when it comes time to cook. By doing this, dinner

will be a breeze, as all you have to do so pull everything you need, ready

to go, from the fridge straight to the stove or oven.

why not go for the fresh apples? Let’s skip the chips and cookies and

instead select other fruits like bananas and oranges, which all make for

a great snack on the go. And don’t forget the veggies! Celery, carrots

and mini bell peppers are great choices. Raw nuts and trail mix are also

great! But be sure not to buy the sugar- and salt-coated kind. Raw nuts

and trail mixes that have natural dried fruit (sorry, no chocolate chips

or M&M’s) make the best choice. String cheese is another great option!

A WINTER WONDERLAND

Make a trip to West Yellowstone this season

NO TRIP TO THE AREA IS COMPLETE

WITHOUT A TRIP TO YELLOWSTONE

NATIONAL PARK. ALWAYS STUNNING, IT

WILL BLOW YOU AWAY WITH ITS BEAUTY

DURING THE WINTER MONTHS.

By Marguerite Cleveland

When the winter snows blanket the town of West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park, the summer

crowds dissipate, making this the ideal time of year to visit. West Yellowstone makes the perfect base

for exploring all the area has to offer in the winter months and is the closest park entrance to the Old

Faithful Geyser. Surrounded by three National Forests, plenty of trout streams and lakes, it makes

getting back to nature easy. There is a surprising number of things to do from snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and

snowshoeing to winter fly fishing. The town of West Yellowstone is right outside the West Entrance to the park and,

although it is closed to cars in the winter, it is open for licensed tour operators for snowmobile and snowcoach tours.

Where to Stay

The Yellowstone Lodge has a great location for your base during your time in the area. It is only one block away from

popular attractions, restaurants and shopping, and just three blocks away from the West Entrance to Yellowstone

National Park. The hotel is one of the newer properties in West Yellowstone. It has decent sized modern rooms, and

there is even a family suite option if you need more space. Amenities on the property include an indoor heated pool

and hot tub. The included continental breakfast is substantial with a nice variety. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Where to Eat

Most restaurants in the area are heavy on the Western theme. Think hearty steaks, burgers and comfort food. While in

town make sure to try an elk or bison dish. Madison Crossing Lounge is in an old school. The first West Yellowstone

school was built in 1918 and now houses commercial businesses including the restaurant. This is a wonderful place to

dine. They work hard to source locally as much as possible to support the

local economy and offer a very well-rounded menu with nightly specials

and several elk and bison options; think delicious bison meatloaf or elk

tenderloin medallions with a blueberry-tarragon reduction.

The Slippery Otter Pub is a rowdy, casual pub with good service and tasty

food. Try a bison burger or jalapeno wontons with huckleberry sauce.

The Book Peddler is a coffee shop tucked in the back of a store. This is

where the locals grab coffee. The baked goods are house made, and the

blueberry scone is light and delicate, and pairs perfectly with a cup of

coffee.

What to Do

No trip to the area is complete without a trip to Yellowstone National

Park. Always stunning, it will blow you away with its beauty during the

winter months. Mounds of snow contrast with steaming geysers, and

wildlife viewing is at its peak. If you are going to splurge on anything

during your trip, make it hiring Yellowstone Guide Amy Beegel, Easy

Tours Yellowstone, LLC to guide your snowmobile trip into the park.

Certified guides are required in the winter months, and Amy is a pro.

Super fun and so knowledgeable about the park, she will curate your

tour to fit the interests of your group. A great guide makes or breaks a

trip, so contact Amy first and she will help you arrange the snowmobile

rentals. Plan for a full-day adventure. Local outfitters also have snowsuits,

gloves and boots available for rent. Be aware when making any kind of

reservations that there is no cell phone service outside of town, so many

outfitters will get back to you in the evening after they have returned

from day tours.

You won’t be able to spot a bear in Yellowstone National Park in the winter

because they hibernate, but the bears that live at the Grizzly & Wolf

Discovery Center don’t hibernate. The center gives you the opportunity

to explore the world of grizzly bears and gray wolves as well as the new

River Otter Exhibit. Each exhibit has warm buildings so you can observe

the animals both inside and outside. The center has also acquired a

world-class exhibit BEARS once it completed its tour of the country. It

is interactive and explores the ways bears have captured our attention

through myth, art, literature, history and

folklore. It is well worth a visit. The animals

that live at the center can no longer return

to the wild for a variety of reasons including

being orphaned, a nuisance animal or

suffered injuries. This is not a typical tourist

attraction but an education center, and you

will learn so much about the wildlife in the

area. Your ticket is good for two days, so

don’t be surprised if the kids ask to go back

again.

The Yellowstone Giant Screen and Trading

Post makes a nice stop if the weather is not

cooperating. It opens in the afternoon for

shopping, and movies start at 3:30pm. The

Yellowstone Movie shows every day and

provides a good overview of the history of

Yellowstone National Park. A current movie

is also shown each day. Check with the

theater for current listings and times.

You’ll want to schedule in time to explore West Yellowstone by foot. It is

a cute walkable town with a “Wild West” feel about it.

If you want a special adventure, head out to Big Sky for a dogsled

adventure with Spirit of the North. Unlike many companies, with Spirit

of the North you will receive hands-on instruction and have the thrill of

driving a sled dog team. If you’ve never been around an Alaskan huskies

dog team, you are in for a treat. The dogs are high energy and love to run.

They are friendly and enjoy receiving lots of petting. The trips take place

1 mile about the Mountain Village at the ski resort in what is known

as Moonlight Basin. You’ll enjoy breathtaking scenery along the trail

including views of Lone Mountain and the Spanish Peaks.

Located around 30 miles outside of West Yellowstone, the historic 320

Guest Ranch offers evening sleigh rides. This magical ride takes you

along the Gallatin River on a sleigh pulled by draft horses. On a clear

night, being so far out of town, the stars are so bright in the night sky. The

sleigh ride takes you to Mountain Man Campsite where you will enjoy

wild game chili, a variety of snacks and hot beverages, with the option

of adult beverages. Listen to ranch stories by the bonfire before heading

back. The trip lasts about an hour. You can also arrange for a private

sleigh ride.

West Yellowstone is truly special during the wintertime. When planning

for your trip, prepare for extreme weather and pack layers and warm

clothing. Before heading out each day, check the weather forecast so you

don’t get caught in an unexpected storm. For more information, visit

DestinationYellowstone.com and YellowstoneDestination.com.

ENTERTAINMENT

IT'S TIME TO

ENVISION

YOUR FUTURE

January

5 &12

HOW MANY OF US SET OUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS BY WRITING

THEM ON A PIECE OF PAPER or tucking them away safely in our mind,

only to discover around November 15 that we lost the paper under

a stack of other papers or buried the list under hundreds of other

thoughts in our mind?

Want a better solution this coming year so that you can have better

results?

Creating a vision board is the best way to set your goals clearly with

intentionality, then keep them visible throughout the year. Alison

Henslee, owner of the Creative Soul Collective, leads vision board

workshops locally and is a firm believer in their usefulness and

purpose.

“I’ve seen amazing things come to people and incredible goals

reached from creating personal vision boards,” Alison shares. “One

client from last year told me that she’d achieved all but one of her

2019 goals on her board, and I had a goal for 2020 met three days after

I created my board in November!”

Three Vision Board Workshops set for this month!

The process is fun and easy. Clients gather at her workshops to plan for

their future while browsing through magazines for photos that have

significance or represent their goals. Alison provides food, drink and

motivational content while they work, and she encourages people to

think of their board not only as a way to track goals but also as art

forms, encouraging the use of colors, textures and patterns for more

visual appeal.

To utilize that appeal and keep her goals in view, Alison frames her

boards. She buys plain black picture frames at the dollar store and

remove the glass, and then hangs them throughout her home.

Alison will be hosting 2020 vision board workshops at her home

on Sunday, January 5 (1pm) and January 12 (10am), with a third

workshop, date still to be determined, at Under the Sun. She's also

happy to do private or corporate visioning sessions.

For more information or to RSVP, please contact her at 208.610.8806.

Follow the Creative Soul Collective on Facebook and Instagram for the

latest on all her upcoming workshops and painting classes.
