businesses—many who need our patronage

more than ever.

treated to stories that are sure to inspire

and remind you of all the positivity that

surrounds us, even during difficult times.

Home Improvement Projects

PREPARING OUR HOMES FOR THE WARM WEATHER

BY NIKKI LUTTMANN, SEVEN BEE INTERIORS

FOR SANDPOINT FURNITURE, CARPET ONE AND SELKIRK GLASS AND CABINETS

Well, summer is officially here, and this year the warm weather

is especially welcome. Many of us have spent far more

time inside our homes recently than in months and even

years past due to COVID-19. These past few months have

taught me so much about my home and my family, and even myself.

For example, I make a great art teacher but a rotten third-grade math

teacher! This month I’d like to focus on preparing our homes for the

warm weather and helping to boost the local economy while we’re at it.

Something that can be overlooked in any home is the addition of fresh

air and sunshine. Your home could be picture-perfect, but without fresh

air and sunlight, it can feel stagnant. One way to add fresh air without

inviting in the mosquito family from next door is to update or add

screens to your home. Selkirk Glass and Cabinets have a great “invisible”

screen product that retracts and can be added to virtually any door.

While they’re at it, they can replace windowpanes that have cracked

or fogged, which happens when a window loses its seal, and can really

detract from your view.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

12

Adding window coverings can also be an asset in the warmer months.

There are so many to choose from, from solar shades to insulated

double-walled cellular shades that can keep heat out and cool air in.

Proper window coverings also protect your flooring and furniture from

harmful UV rays and keep your home finishes looking newer longer.

I’m a big fan of wood blinds for a classic look, and shutters are definitely

making a comeback in the home trends department. Any of these options

can update the look of your home but also add to your quality of life by

reducing glare, making air conditioning more efficient and blocking out

our early morning northern sun until we are good and ready to wake up!

Summer is also a great time to have your flooring replaced, as your

outdoor spaces can be utilized to store furniture and other belongings

while they have the old flooring going out and new flooring going in.

Also, you can keep your windows and doors open for fresh air while

they are doing the installation, which helps get rid of any contaminants

or volatile organic compounds that might linger when doing flooring

installs.

Outdoor living spaces are all the rage

on sites like Houzz and Pinterest.

Painting the outside of your home is another

popular summertime home improvement

project. Good weather is always a boon for

painters, who will fully utilize the upcoming

sunny days to get their projects finished on

schedule. If you are considering having your

home painted this summer, it’s a good idea to

speak to a painter as soon as possible to ensure

you get a spot on their list.

Outdoor living spaces are all the rage on

sites like Houzz and Pinterest—and for good

reason! They can really add value to your

home and even give you more usable space.

In general, we are still spending more time in

our homes, and adding an outdoor living area

can really help boost morale during this time.

Pergolas and patios are great, but think about

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

adding some fun elements as well. Fire pits,

built-in grills and even pizza ovens are great

additions to any home, and many can be done

safely, even on a budget.

Outdoor lighting is also a fun way to spruce up

your space. Adding new exterior lighting can

work wonders in updating your exterior, and

the addition of twinkle lights, path lighting or

café lights can add ambiance and character to

an otherwise bland space. Some of these can

be easy DIY projects, but adding new outlets

or other larger installs are usually only a phone

call away with a good electrician!

I hope this list gives you a few ideas for the

upcoming summer months! Have fun, stay

healthy and enjoy our beautiful North Idaho

summer!

Where Our Focus Goes, Our Energy Flows

WHATEVER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, WHAT WE THINK AND WHO WE CHOOSE

TO BE MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

By Trish Buzzone, Thinking Partner, Executive Director, The John Maxwell Team

118 Kokanee Rd Bonners Ferry

$679,000

Custom Home | Beautiful Views

High-End Finishes

Sometime in March, life as we know it

went off the rails. As the number of

coronavirus cases grew, businesses

closed, and others struggled to keep

their doors open. Parks, restaurants and

theaters closed. Weeks passed, and for many of

us, the walls felt like they were closing in.

Each day, I made it a point to check in with

family and friends who were, like me, looking

for ways to adjust to the “new normal.” One

of those friends confessed the transition had

been a challenge. Adam works mainly out of

his house. His wife is a schoolteacher, now also

working from home. They have two boys still

at home and one in the military. Safe-at-Home

orders meant pretty much everything around

them was closed, and they were immersed in

learning new technology, testing new routines

and adjusting expectations.

My friend said, even in all the struggle, they

were able to create moments of joy. I asked him

to share one:

“Our wedding anniversary was coming up, 22

years together, and I was sick. The week before,

I’d developed some congestion and a cough.

No fever, fortunately, but one of those deep,

nasty coughs that keeps you up at night.

“For 22 years, our anniversary always meant an

adventure. Hiking, sailing, enjoying a beachside

B&B, learning and exploring together. … Not

this year. Even if I wasn’t sick, the world was

wearing a big Out of Order sign.

“By Thursday, I was on my third day of very

little sleep. My bride took one look at me and

told me to stay in bed. I rolled over, closed my

eyes, and woke up Friday morning. All day, the

house was full of whispers. Mom and the boys

were planning something as I tried to knock

the rust off my brain and get caught up on

work.

“Anniversary morning arrived. We sipped

coffee on the porch swing and watched the

river behind our house. It wasn’t a mountain

cabin or a tropical island, but we were together.

Looming deadlines meant I had to get back to

work. Lesson planning meant so did she.

the door, giggling. Something was definitely

up. Out on the dock, they had strung Christmas

lights from piling to piling. Candles flickered

on a table set for two. Platters held all our

favorite picnic foods. A wine bottle sweated in

the warm evening. Soft music played.

“I sat down across from her, soaking up the

moment. It felt like we were together at a

riverside Italian bistro, the only people in the

world. She poured the wine, and we toasted 22

years. We set our glasses down, both smiling,

maybe for the first time that week. I know it

was the happiest I’d been since the first time I

heard the words ‘COVID-19.’

“As the sun melted behind the horizon, we ate

and talked and laughed until it was too dark to

see. Coronavirus may have stolen our annual

adventure, but maybe creating moments of

joy when the world feels like it’s falling apart is

adventure enough.”

Hearing this, I was inspired by Adam’s

unwavering life stance, the way his family

honors traditions, embraces challenges and

loves each other through these uncertain times.

Where their focus goes, their energy flows, and

that is true for all of us.

GROWING AS A COMMUNITY

GROW! brings community gardening to Bonners Ferry

By Abigail Thorpe

and Jerry Pavia

IT'S A

COOPERATIVE

PROGRAM, AND

OF COURSE THE

PRODUCE IS

AVAILABLE TO

ANYONE WHO

WANTS IT.

Walk down the streets of Bonners Ferry

or stop to shop at places like Yoder’s

Market, and you may notice small

planter boxes with a variety of veggies

and herbs and little green and white signs sporting a

watering can that say “Little Free Garden.”

Funded by a grant from the Blue Cross of Idaho

Foundation, High Five! and administered by the City

of Bonners Ferry, with assistance from the University

of Idaho Master Gardeners and GROW!, the program

partners with local businesses to provide free produce

to the community through Little Free Gardens outside

of businesses and organizations throughout the town.

“I was thinking what else can we do to bring gardening

to the public,” says GROW! Secretary and University

of Idaho Extension Educator Kate Painter. “I thought

what if we had little free community gardens like we

have little free libraries.” It turned out there was already

a national organization called Little Free Gardens, and

so GROW! and Bonners Ferry joined, becoming the

first site in Idaho to offer Little Free Gardens to the

community.

Painter, along with GROW! Treasurer Gerry Ann

Howlett, spearhead the program. They started with

22 gardens the first year and are working to add

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

16

additional gardens this season. Local businesses

partner with GROW! to provide a home for the garden

and their own container if they’d like (GROW! also has

containers they can provide); there are funds to assist

with the cost; and master gardeners help businesses to

plant and care for the little garden.

“It's a cooperative program, and of course the produce

is available to anyone who wants it,” says Painter. “It's

fun, and I think people realize how easy it is. How

much, for example, lettuce you can grow.”

GROW!, which stands for Gardens for Regional

Organic Wellbeing, started in 2009 with a group of

volunteers. It’s always been closely associated with the

University of Idaho Extension office and the Master

Gardening program, says Painter.

The nonprofit provides gardening opportunities for

those without access to garden space and also provides

educational opportunities to learn from various master

gardeners with plots in the garden and attend classes

through the extension office. “It is a really wonderful

thing to have this community garden as a gardening

site for our program,” says Painter.

In the early years of GROW!, there were three

community garden locations. The garden now operates

in just one location, on the grounds of Trinity Lutheran


Church on Buchanan Street. It is always open to

the public to visit and includes its own Little Free

Garden that is a perennial herb garden, so visitors

can come and snip some fresh herbs to take home

and add to their meal.

The Community Garden offers raised garden

beds and ground plots for rent to the community,

and this year they are finishing four new raised

beds to expand the garden space.

The raised beds became essential after a disease

called white onion rot was discovered in the area

two years ago. The disease is very contagious

and can stay in the ground for up to 20 years.

GROW! successfully did remediation on the

disease through the use of mustard cover crop,

and the experience demonstrated how important

the space was not just for providing organic

produce to the community but for learning as

well. “The GROW! Community Garden has been

quite important in terms of disease control,” says

Painter.

The Community Garden also serves as a teaching

garden for the University of Idaho Extension

Office, which offers classes to the community at

a nominal fee to help cover expenses. “It's a really

magical place to be up there,” says Painter. “All of

the people I've met and the Community Garden

people ... they help make all of this programming

work.”

The garden site is situated right by the daycare

run by Trinity Lutheran Church—an ideal

location for children to learn about gardening,

says Painter. GROW! does a children’s garden

in the space, and master gardeners volunteer to

bring the kids over and show them how to garden,

ensuring a love of gardening and understanding

of the benefits of fresh, organic produce is passed

on to the next generation.

In addition to offering the community a space to

garden and opportunities for learning, GROW!

donates fresh produce to the local food bank,

which serves around 500 local families every

month. They’ve donated over a ton of produce

each year to the food bank since 2017.

The GROW! garden is a great asset to the

Bonners Ferry community in so many ways—

from providing gardening space to learning

opportunities and free produce for those who

need it. “The fact that this community has a

community garden, it's a tremendous asset and

shows the spirit we have here in Bonners Ferry of

self-reliance,” says Painter.

GROW! is dedicated to getting the community

passionate about growing and involving all who

want to help or learn. “We are always short of

hands, so we'd love to have more people involved,”

says Painter. To find out more about getting

involved with the Community Garden, sponsor

your own Little Free Garden, or see available

classes, visit GROWBoundaryCounty.org.

We will be open with essential business vendors to serve the needs of our

community! We look forward to seeing our customers and assure you that all

recommended safety guidelines and sanitation measures will be implemented.

Please shop considerately, observe crowd spacing and limit the number of

attendees per family during this time. Thank you!

GRADUATION

2020

By

Ceremonies shift to drive-in

Colin Anderson

While it was a challenging end to the 2020 school year, it is

the hope of all educators to return to the classroom for the

2020-2021 school year. “We miss our students and hope

we may all return to school in the fall,” said Superintendent

Jan Bayer. “We want to thank our students and families for their

continued support and efforts during this time. We hope you are all safe

and healthy.”

While a return to a more normal education

is something students can look forward

to, it won’t be so for the graduating class

of 2020. Much like the end of senior year,

graduation day will be much different. While

restrictions across the state are continuing

to loosen, gatherings of large crowds are

still prohibited under the governor’s order.

Instead of gathering side by side with their

classmates and having proud parents,

grandparents, aunts, uncles and family

friends in the audience, seniors will instead

have a drive-through graduation.

While not the celebration everyone had

hoped for, organizers still wanted graduates

to partake in the ceremony for this great

achievement in their lives. The graduation

ceremony will take place on Saturday, June

6, beginning at 11am. Relatives can stream

the service and a recording will also be available on the district website.

The schedule is as follows:

• Students/family will be permitted to have one car per family. No RVs,

limos or oversized vehicles.

• Students/family will line up at the fairgrounds at 10am. They must stay

in their vehicles with their family.

• Students/family will be escorted to the

high school at 10:40am.

• Students/family will drive through the

middle school parking lot, by the baseball

field to the front of the school.

• Student and one family member will exit

the vehicle to receive their diploma cover

and take a picture. The student will proceed

down the sidewalk to pick up their diploma

from staff further than 6 feet from the

previous staff member.

• Student and family member will return to

the vehicle and exit school grounds.

Congratulations, graduates, on this great

achievement, and wishing you all a bright

future.

CLOUD ELEVEN

MOUNTAIN FARM

LOCALLY OWNED, NATURALLY

GROWN, INSPIRED BY BLISS,

BEER AND ROCK AND ROLL

BY ABIGAIL THORPE

Julie Newcomb keeps a quote of Thomas Jefferson on the front

of her garden log book: “The security of our nation depends

on subsistence farming.” It’s her reminder of why her and

her husband’s farming efforts are so important. “As much as

we need large-scale farming operations to feed our masses,

we also need more local and subsistence farming to balance or

distribute our farming assets,” says Julie.

She and her husband Edward started Cloud Eleven in 2016 with

just a few fruit trees and a mission to amend the soil to create the

perfect foundation for growing. “We believe it's all about the soil,

and you either pay now or pay later with your investment in this!”

say the Newcombs.

With family roots in farming in South Dakota and nurseries

in Oakland, California, gardening is in the Newcombs’ blood.

After participating in a master gardening course through the

University of Idaho Extension, and encouragement and advice

from local farmers and gardeners, the couple decided to start

their own farming endeavor in the northeast corner of the Idaho

Panhandle, nestled in the

Purcell Mountains in Moyie

Springs.

The name Cloud Eleven

was inspired by bliss, beer,

and rock and roll, says

Julie. “We like to challenge

some of our more inquiring

customers into ferreting out

the source to the 'Eleven' in

our name and reward them

with a special treat if they

can figure it out. We often

provide hints in some of

our Instagram page posts,

such as 'Turn it up to Cloud

herbs, flowers and plant

starts, makes low-sugar

jams and jellies, and powdered greens. They started with a booth

at the Bonners Ferry Farmers Market in 2018 and recently became

the first farm in Boundary County to become Certified Naturally

Grown—a certification earned after demonstrating natural

growing practices that promote ecological balance and help

replenish the soil. “It is reminiscent of the spirit of the original

organic farming movement,” says Julie.

“Naturally grown, or organically grown, is important to us because

we believe it's the best way to grow food that's good for the body,

good for the soul and good for our home,” says Julie. “Someone

said recently ... that 'we are caretakers of the land on which we live,

and it's our responsibility to leave it in better condition than we

found it.' If we can at least improve the space in which we occupy,

then, wow, think of the impact that would have if everyone tried

to do the same!”

The Newcombs truly value small local farming as a way to support

and contribute to the local community, and are passionate about

encouraging the community to “know their farmer” and also

know where the food they eat comes from. They can be found at

the local Bonners Ferry Farms Market on Saturdays and the Libby

Farmers Market on Thursdays. Connect with them on Instagram

GET INTO THE SWING OF THINGS

MIRROR LAKE A PERFECT PLACE FOR NEW GOLFERS

By Colin Anderson

It can be challenging for parents to keep their

kids occupied during the summer months.

While it’s easy to let screens and video games

do the babysitting, kids need exercise, mental

challenges and continued

learning. Why not

accomplish all three while

developing interest in a

lifelong hobby; something

that can be achieved at

Mirror Lake Golf Course.

While this North Idaho

gem can be a challenge

to even the most

experienced golfers, it

also has everything those

new to the sport need to

get started. The putting

green is the perfect place

to begin, as all you need

is a putter and a few

balls. Make a fun game

of putting while teaching

your youngster how to

line up a putt and the

proper swing.

When they are ready to move up to swinging

a club, the driving range provides the space to

practice. Here is where they can develop a short

swing and really get the feel for the game. If

you don’t feel confident as a teacher, speak with

PGA Head Golf Professional Ralph Lotspeich,

who is on hand to help out with golfers at all

skill levels.

While golf can be

outrageously expensive

at some regional courses,

youth rates at Mirror Lake

encourage children to

come back time and again

to develop a love of the

sport. Junior rates are just

$5 for 9 holes and $9.50

for 18. A season pass is

just $53, about the same

as a single day skiing or

snowboarding one of the

local mountains.

After a fun day on the

green, the range or the

course, kids will love

ending with a snack and a

drink at the clubhouse.

Golf provides a great opportunity for kids to

mingle with adults, and those who learn the

game young tend to make it a big part of their

adult lives.

NORTH IDAHO

IN FOCUS

FAMILY OWNED, COMMUNITY FOCUSED

SUPER 1 FOODS: NORTH IDAHO’S SUPERMARKET

BY ABIGAIL THORPE

PHOTOS COURTESY OF SUPER 1 FOODS AND ALISON HENSLEE

Walk in your local Super 1

Foods store, and odds are

you’re met by a friendly face,

helping hands and a sense of

community. Particularly during these uncertain

times, our supermarket and grocery workers

have been on the frontlines, making sure their

communities have the goods they need, with a

sense of “we’re all in this together” at every stage

of the process.

While many of us were (or are) stuck at home,

they’ve been the often unseen hands stocking

shelves, cleaning carts and making sure the

elderly and those most in need have access to

the necessities.

But It’s not just COVID-19 that’s brought this

about—Super 1 has always had community

at its core. “At Super 1 Foods we emulate

our founders’ values: trust, loyalty, integrity,

dependability, safety,” says Jeff Hamley, Super

1 Foods store director in Bonners Ferry. The

company was founded by Ron and Joanne

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

McIntire in 1970, and Ron is still active in the

business today.

The company just opened its 16th store in

May 2020 in Oldtown, Idaho. “Being a local

North Idaho founded company, and growing

up with the towns in North Idaho through

all the growth in the last 50 years, has kept us

involved in serving our communities as times

and needs have changed,” says Randy McIntire,

the Hayden-based vice president of Manito

Super 1 Foods.

Ron McIntire was dedicated to serving local

charitable and governmental organizations,

including his local school board and the Boy

Scouts Inland Northwest Council, formerly the

Inland Empire Council. “Super 1 Foods follows

his lead in trying to be generous, helpful in our

local communities,” says Randy McIntire. “Our

schools, and our local food banks, are some

primary organizations we try to serve.

“Some of our small rural schools are now

24

large suburban schools, and the available

opportunities have grown with our

communities. Super 1 has been able to serve

more and in larger ways as it has grown as a

company,” he adds.

Each store—and the company as a whole—

continues to operate by Ron McIntire’s

commitment to the community, supporting

various youth programs, schools, parks and

recs programs, scouts, 4-H, county fairs and

hospital boards in each area.

“Hayden (and) Coeur d’Alene communities

are made up of people that are very proud of

their community, and appreciate the natural

beauty of North Idaho,” says Randy McIntire.

“They are very active in trying to support our

local community and be a positive influence on

keeping our community a great place to live.

Super 1 Foods, like many other local businesses,

are striving for the same thing—to make our

community a better place to live.”

The Coeur d’Alene area was the site of some

of the very first Super 1 Foods that opened

Sandpoint store manager. “Our philosophy

is consistently writing low prices with the

highest quality in fresh foods,” he says.

“Trustworthiness, loyalty—being committed

to being really professional in our work

environment—those are some of the things

that are important.”

Furin recalls Ron McIntire impressing upon

him the importance of community when Furin

first came to Sandpoint in 2010 to manage the

then newly opened store.

For Furin personally, Kinderhaven, local

sports, the hospital and 4-H are top causes he

makes it a priority to support. “It's important

that we spend time helping people that need

help in those areas,” he says. He serves on an

advisory committee at the hospital, which has

been especially important and a key link to the

work he does at the store during the current

health concerns, he notes.

The first year the Sandpoint store opened it

donated a pallet of electrolytes to the local

football team, recalls Furin. They’ve been

donating a pallet of Powerade to the team

every year since. He soon got actively involved

in individually supporting local sports teams,

and has been coaching youth sports—either

football, basketball or baseball—since 2011.

Many employees follow his and the company’s

lead, volunteering their time and money to give

back to the community in a variety of ways.

Some of the employees attend the Festival of

Trees for Kinderhaven each year. The store

gives something to every school in the district

and provides field trips for about half the grade

schools, says Furin. “If the schools need help

with something, we’re always there to help,” he

adds.

Each year, the store supports the local fair and

purchases 4-H animals. Last year they sold the

local pigs they purchased from 4-H members

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

at the store—a prime example of bringing

community and company mission together by

serving locally sourced fresh meat that also

supported a good cause.

Neighboring Bonners Ferry Super 1 Foods is

equally as dedicated to providing low prices

on the highest quality and freshest foods to

the community and finds every opportunity

to get involved with supporting local families,

nonprofits and food banks.

“We at Super 1 Foods are proud to give

donations to nonprofit organizations, and

support our 4-H and schools, and food banks,”

says Hamley. The Bonners store sponsors

the Bull Bash every year, in addition to the

Demolition Derby, the 4-H live auction, and

the local fire department spaghetti donations

for families in need, he adds.

“With Bonners Ferry being such a small

community, it gives Super 1 Foods the ability

to connect with all our customers on a personal

level and connect with each customer by name.”

The increased pressure COVID-19 has placed

on grocery stores has only served to highlight

and strengthen Super 1 stores’ spirit of

community. Through the tough times stores

26

have continued to find ways to fill their shelves

and keep food available for customers, says

Randy McIntire.

Extra sanitization measures and crowded stores

with depleted stock have made it difficult

working conditions for employees, but the

company has worked to reward employees

through Hero pay and extra money each pay

day for their dedication, says Hamley.

“What's been inspirational to me, with most of

my employees, how willing they are to go the

extra mile for the customer during these tough

times,” says Furin. “Through this, our sales

have increased, and so everyone's had to work

a little harder, and the out-of-stock issues—it's

been challenging, but it's amazing.”

Looking forward, Super 1 stores are ready

to support and help local communities as

they work to recover from the crisis. “As civic

organizations and churches become active again

in serving our community, we will look forward

to contributing to their efforts,” says Randy

McIntire. “Food Banks will be very important

this summer, and we will be supporting them

in helping many neighbors who have been hurt

by the economic shutdown.”

Serving North Idaho, Eastern Washington and Western Montana, Idaho

Granite Works specializes in a wide variety of natural stone projects,

handling all phases of fabrication and installation.

Over the years, the family was inspired to get into the granite fabrication

business as things changed in the logging and road construction industry, and

they were traveling further away from home for work. “Originally incorporated

in 1969 as Anderson Logging Co., Inc. by my grandfather, Lowell Anderson, we

made the change to a stone fabrication shop and changed the name of the business

to Idaho Granite Works Inc.,” says Julie Krezman.

“Even with the business evolving from logging and construction to stone

fabrication, its strong family roots remain,” comments Lucinda McLeish. Idaho

Granite Works is a family owned and operated business. Oscar Anderson and his

three daughters Julie Krezman, Lucinda McLeish and Laree Liermann, son-inlaws

Adam Krezman and Daniel McLeish, grandson Conner Krezman, along with

the team at Idaho Granite Works, work hard to build a legacy and a successful

business together.

Idaho Granite Works has been offering their expertise in stone fabrication for

more than 20 years. Many of their designs use locally quarried granite and basalt,

28


as well as limestone, granite, marble and engineered quartz from around

the world.

As a custom stone fabrication shop, the company manufactures what the

customer dreams up and offers a number of products including, though

not limited to:

Bonner counties, as they say they are the biggest part of the company’s

success. “We wouldn’t be where we are today without their support,” says

Julie. “Our customers are not just customers to us. They are our family,

friends and neighbors.” Combined with the quality craftsmanship and

excellent customer service, Idaho Granite Works provides their clients

with a product nothing short of exceptional.

Exterior: landscape steps, signs, barbecue counters, fire pits, fountains,

blocks, outdoor furniture, entrances, benches

Interior: countertops, sinks, tub surrounds, showers, fireplaces

Memorials: monuments, headstones, benches, plaques

The qualified staff can help you through the steps of design, cost

estimating, material selection, fabrication, installation and maintenance.

“It is rewarding when we make someone’s ideas come to life,” affirms

Julie. “Being a custom shop, we get to help our customers implement their

dreams into their homes or businesses.”

Oscar, Julie, Lucinda and Laree, along with the rest of the Idaho Granite

Works family, are thankful to their loyal customers in Boundary and

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

In addition to their superior services offered to the local communities,

they also find time to give back. Idaho Granite Works has worked

with Boundary County Fuller Center for Housing (formally Habitat

for Humanity) to provide countertops in two homes. They have also

supported the Robotics team (they have a nice sign too!), Bonners Ferry

High School, 4-H and more, in addition to supporting many individual

benefit auctions with auction items each year.

Idaho Granite Works’ fabrication shop is located in Naples, while their

showroom can be found in Sagle. They invite you to stop in the showroom

Monday through Friday, 10am to 5pm, to browse through their fine

selections of natural stones, quartz material and unique displays, as well

as the opportunity to discuss their process and your vision.

ADVENTURE

IDAHO COUPLE TRADES THE ICY WATERS IN

CANADA FOR A KAYAK IN HUMID ALABAMA

BY DAN AZNOFF | COURTESY PHOTOS

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

30


Idaho residents Julie Kirk and Joshua Freedman have changed their plans for this summer. The scenery will be equally spectacular, the weather a

bit warmer, but an entirely new challenge.

News that the COVID-19 pandemic had forced the sponsors of the Yukon 1000 across the Canadian wilderness to cancel this year’s event, which

compelled the couple to seek out another challenge.

So, instead of making their way across the Great North this summer, Joshua and Julie will be paddling their way through some of the most picturesque

wilderness waterways of the Deep South as participants in the Great Alabama 650. The course is a world apart from the Canadian Yukon wilderness.

Over the past eight years the Idaho couple had been regular participants in the Yukon River Quest, a twisting challenge through virtually untouched

wilderness in the vast open terrain in Canada. They have placed as high as first place in their division.

Julie and Joshua had hoped to enhance the challenge this year by doubling their miles on the river when they applied to compete in the elite Yukon

1000, a course that follows the route of early pioneers in what has been billed as the longest boat race in the world.

The disappointing news of the COVID lockdown, however, did not deter them. Joshua quickly found another challenge they could answer. His

solution was the Great Alabama 650, a test of strength, endurance and mental fortitude that takes river paddlers on what sponsors describe as “an epic

adventure along the core section of the Alabama Scenic River Trail.”

“It may be less miles,” said Joshua, “but it is definitely more of a challenge. Both physically and emotionally.”

He was thrilled with the new challenge, proclaiming he did not want to “flush all those hours of training down the toilet.” He added the Alabama

course has the potential to be more challenging because the Yukon River flows at a consistent 9 to 13 miles per hour. The river course in Alabama has

multiple stretches of still water that will require human propulsion.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

31


Racers in Alabama will also be forced to exit the river for nine

portages to get around nine dams on this year’s course. Julie has

been designated as the coxswain for the race to allow Joshua to

concentrate on navigation.

“We were already seven months into our training for the Yukon

when they pulled the plug,” said Joshua. He admitted that Julie

is a “much better technical paddler,” but Julie said her partner’s

training for Ironman competitions will be beneficial during the

more grueling portions of the race.

According to Race Director Greg Wingo, the race in Alabama

this September presents a unique challenge for both competitors

and organizers. Greg is an ultra-runner who co-founded a trail

running group in his native Birmington.

“When it comes to a paddle race, and specifically with our race

where we have several different bodies of water, the logistics

behind that are quite a bit more complicated,” he explained. “On

top of that, there is a level of navigating and orienteering that’s

involved for the paddlers that’s not quite as common in most

running races.”

Only three teams out of the 20 that began last year’s inaugural

race made it to the finish line, he said.

Dedicated training

The change in venue has not changed Joshua and Julie’s yearround

zeal for their daily regimen of vigorous training. In

addition to time on the river every morning near their home

north of Bonners Ferry in North Idaho, Joshua continues to chop

wood, work out at the gym and hone the navigational skills he

first learned during his time as a SEAL in the Navy.

Meanwhile, Julie does aerobics to build up her stamina when she

is not behind the counter of Mountain Mike’s, a local health food

store.

“We are both knocking on the door of 60, so our workouts now

include more yoga in addition to aerobics,” said Julie.

Joshua said they will begin to scale back from their twice-a-day

routine as they get closer to the actual start date of the race.

“We’re also taking more supplements to help boost our endurance

levels,” he said with a quiet laugh.

Julie is concerned that the drastic changes in temperature and

humidity in Alabama in the heat of summer may pose more of a

challenge than the actual river.

“Obviously, the Yukon is a much colder environment than

Alabama, and so we'll be doing a lot of training during the heat of

the day this summer (in Idaho),” Josh said when asked about the

changes in preparation for the new challenge.

“The only element we will really need to work on that is different

is heat tolerance.”

They explained the actual workouts are “not really much different”

than their annual preparation for the Yukon. Julie said their time

in kayaks on the river is primarily focused on strengthening the

teamwork and the methods the couple has developed as tandem

paddlers over the years.

Racers can never take any situation on the river for granted,

said Joshua. He said participants have reported experiencing

hallucinations along either course. That can be especially

dangerous for teams hundreds of miles from civilization in

Canada.

Based on his research from across the country, Josh anticipates

even more perils in the Alabama waterway. Instead of an

occasional bear foraging for salmon, the southern waters will

have dangers with large teeth lurking below the surface of the

water and ominous predators in the branches of trees along the

bank.

As of now, the Great Alabama 650 is scheduled to start on

September 16 on Weiss Lake in the northeast corner of the state

and end at Fort Morgan on the shores of Mobile Bay. Rules of the

race dictate that the race must be completed within 10 days.

A total of $22,500 in prize money will be divided among finishers

in three separate categories: male, female and two-person teams.

The river course stretches from the white water at the headwaters

to the ambling river delta. Greg cautions racers that “the race can

pose a challenge to even the most experienced paddler.”

Racers, he said, who sign up for the solo division must have at

least one “crewperson” to assist throughout the race to provide

help along the journey. The race director is also grateful for the

“trail angels,” people who live along the water who will be available

to assist racers, offering snacks or a place for a hot shower.

“All along the trail, there are people that live close by and love

this waterway and love to help out paddlers,” Greg said. “We’ve

created a network of these angels to help out paddlers with pretty

much anything on their route—acts of kindness that have been

in place for decades. Now we’ll be utilizing them for this race.”

The angels and a host of other volunteers will be a major force in

keeping the race running properly. Many of the volunteers will be

stationed at portages along the course. Racers will be met on the

shoreline, where they will be required to get out of their boat and

take a compulsory break.

Most of these stations are at sites of dams and other places that

will need to be bypassed on foot.

“Volunteers are absolutely critical for this race,” Greg said. “The

primary responsibility of the volunteers at the portages will be to

make sure racers get their mandatory time out of the water and

to check on them.”

He said as the race proceeds and competitors spread out, more

volunteers are needed to staff the stations, some hundreds of

miles apart.

“At the beginning of the race this isn’t a huge deal because the

racers are still close together, but as the days go by the racers

spread out, based on their ability, pretty far, so we’ll need to man

multiple portages over a couple of hundred miles, staffing them


24 hours a day,” Greg said.

Joshua and Julie will travel to Alabama with

their own set of “trail angels.”

“My son, Ian, has been with us for five years in

a row for the Yukon River Quest. He is planning

on going with us to the Great Alabama 650 this

year too,” said Julie. “He could not make it last

year. “

Wayne and Wanda Wilkerson were on hand

to support their friends at the first mandatory

layover last year. They helped pull Joshua and

Julie out of their boat, fed them both and put

them to beds to sleep before the start of the

next day.

“While we are sleeping, they clean out our

boat, restock it with food and water, dry

everything they can (pfds, spray skirts,

jackets). They helped inspect our gear and

boat with the race officials, and then they are

DRY NEEDLING

AN ALTERNATIVE WAY TO

RELIEVE PAIN

BY DR. JESSICA SEABURG, PT, DPT, OCS

BOUNDARY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL

REHABILITATION SERVICES

Dry needling is a technique physical

therapists (PTs) use for the treatment

of pain and movement impairments.

You may have heard of the “opioid

epidemic” and be concerned about how to manage

pain without these addictive drugs. Dry needling

can be a big part of the solution. It is an effective

and very safe way to resolve muscle pain without

pain medicines and their side effects.

What does dry needling look like?

During the treatment, a PT will insert a very thin,

solid “dry” needle, one without medication, into a

muscle. This allows the PT to target trigger points,

which are taut bands of skeletal muscle that may

not be treated effectively by massage. PTs wear

gloves when dry needling and observe all relevant

safety guidelines.

Does dry needling hurt?

The sensation experienced with dry needling is

typically a deep ache or cramp, which quickly

subsides within about 30 to 60 seconds. Often the

muscle will twitch or jump as the needle is inserted.

What can I expect from dry needling?

Dry needling is like pressing a “reset button”

for the muscle. People typically have immediate

improvement with pain and the ability to move the

problematic area. It is common to experience some

mild to moderate residual soreness for one to two

after treatment. Most people are nervous before

receiving dry needling and then say, “Wow, I’m glad

I tried that!”

What conditions can dry needling help?

Because dry needling treats muscle pain, it is

especially helpful for conditions such as muscle

strains, trigger points, tension headaches and postsurgical

muscle pain. Many people think all their

pain is coming from arthritis or disc problems,

when in fact much of it is coming from their

muscles—and this pain can be greatly improved

with dry needling.

I’m scared of needles. Can a PT help me without

dry needling?

Absolutely! Dry needling is just one tool in a large

toolbox. In cases when PTs use dry needling, it is

look and feel your best

one technique that is part of a larger treatment

plan. PTs have a host of other effective

treatment options to help reduce pain without

dry needling. In my experience, however,

combining dry needling with other therapeutic

treatments allows patients to return to their

prior level of function more quickly.

Is dry needling the same as acupuncture?

No. Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice

based on traditional Chinese medicine and

performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling

is a part of modern Western medicine

principles and supported by research. While

acupuncturists and PTs use similar types

of needles, the assessment, technique and

purposes of the treatment are different.

Is dry needling safe?

Yes! PTs are experts in human anatomy and

receive extensive post-graduate training to

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

be certified in dry needling, so the risks are

minimal. Your PT will thoroughly evaluate

you and provide education on possible risks

prior to treatment. For additional information

on dry needling, you can visit ChoosePT.com/

dryneedling.

Where can I get dry needling?

Dry needling is a specialty for physical

therapists. You should look for someone

who has completed extensive post-graduate

training in “Functional Dry Needling” through

KinetaCore or similar program with experience

in dry needling in a rehabilitation setting.

therapist at Boundary Community Hospital,

How to choose where to build your home

by ABIGAIL THORPE

"W

e strongly believe that choosing the right build location will make or

break your project,” shares Brandon Johnson at Affordable Custom

Builders in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. This is because unforeseen

expenses and issues from site development can dramatically affect

budget and timeline.

“The unforeseen budgetary impact that site development can have ... will take a big bite out

of your construction budget, and if you don't have adequate reserves, it could sink you right

out of the gate,” says Johnson. “I advise that buyers meet both their builder and excavator

at different times to get their perspectives on the challenges and costs to develop their lot.”

Many builders will offer free site visits to help you prepare for the unexpected, so you know

exactly what you’re getting into from the start. It’s a good idea to have an excavator and

builder take a look at your site before you settle on it, but here are some key things to

consider as you search for the perfect build location.

Acreage Needs

First off, consider what type of property you’re looking for and how much you need (or

want). Do you have pets and require a large pasture space? Do you want to garden or farm?

Do you want access to water?

Consider how close you want to be to your neighbors, and who those neighbors might be.

Do you want lots of space to keep your home isolated, or do you want the interaction and

neighborhood camaraderie that comes with building on a small lot in a neighborhood?

Access

It’s essential to know if you have access to your build location. “Not just the obvious questions

about ‘where am I gonna place my house’ or ‘doze my driveway;’ but what type of seasonal

access do I have to the lot, not just through the lot,” says Johnson.

Consider road restrictions on the nearest highways, weight and height limitations on

access roads, and difficult road conditions like switchbacks that make it difficult to get large

deliveries. Also, make sure you know what access is like in all seasons—will you need to do

additional maintenance in winter to have access to your home? Finally, says Johnson, it’s

vital to know you have deeded easement access to the lot. It’s legal to buy and sell landlocked

land in Idaho—which would require a helicopter to access.

Proximity to Attractions and Services

How close do you want to be to town or the city? It may seem nice to be out in the country,

but consider your daily habits and where you enjoy spending the most time. If you are a

person who enjoys going to town multiple times a day, living an hour outside of it might

prove more difficult than you think, particularly in winter. Do you want to be able to bike

to local shops? Or will the noise and lack of space living in a town or city bother you? Here’s

where you consider amenities. Do you want a gated or private community with amenities

and services, or will the rules and regulations that come with them be an issue?

THE SETTING OF

YOUR HOME MATTERS

ON AN AESTHETIC

LEVEL, BUT BEYOND

THE VISUAL SETTING

IT IS IMPORTANT

TO CONSIDER

HOW GEOGRAPHIC

FACTORS MAY AFFECT

YOUR BUILDING

COSTS—SUCH AS

ROCK, CLAY OR SAND.

Connections

Consider what utilities are available and where they are coming from

before finalizing a build site. Septic/sewer should be your first concern,

says Johnson, then water. “Well drilling may require some additional

capital to re-drill if you don't produce adequate water from a well,” he

adds. “If there is a water or sewer system available, that's great, but be

aware there are usually connection fees assessed by the provider that

is a different fee than the actual connection made by the excavator.

Determine those costs up front.” Finally, determine where power or gas

is coming from, and the path it will need to take to reach your home site.

Geographic Features

The setting of your home matters on an aesthetic level, but beyond the

visual setting it is important to consider how geographic factors may

affect your building costs—such as rock, clay or sand. “This is where an

experienced excavator can be most valuable to you,” says Johnson.

“Rock will crush your dreams faster than a Steamroller over a Coke can,

unless you've got seriously robust budgets,” he adds. Keep in mind it’s not

just removing rock for the house pad, but for the driveways and utilities

as well—a project that can easily add up to six figures, says Johnson.

Clay and sand present different challenges in terms of the septic system

and house drainage, and foundation and roads. “Clay can be overcome,

but again, you better be planning for it early,” cautions Johnson. “The cost

to import rock or the use of Heli Pile anchors can cure your sandy site

issues ... but at a substantial cost.”

Finally, consider stormwater control. Building authorities require home

builders to manage the storm water, and the process of planning for it

can delay your timeline, particularly if civil engineers need to inspect and

design management measures, adds Johnson.

Home Orientation

The most commonly considered item, but what you should actually ask

yourself near the end, is what you want the placement of your home to

be. “Of course your home's views are easy for anyone to determine and

have the most long-term benefit of site development, but a few items

not considered by those moving here from southern states are winter

time sun and shady areas,” says Johnson. Make sure you have access

to the southern horizon to help with the grey that settles in winter,

and consider where snow piles may hang on into late spring

and potentially cause issues for gardening or

driveway access.

how to choose your

INSIDER

TIPS & TRICKS

When you decide to have a home built, you commit to an investment in your future; an investment of time, resources

and energy. Reaching this point in life comes with its flood of emotions: excitement, accomplishment, and often,

overwhelm.

Building a home can place you into a completely new role: manager, designer, even contractor, depending on the time

and interest you have in taking these on.

Whether you have building experience or are starting from ground zero, one factor is for certain: You can’t do it alone.

Choosing a team that you trust with your dream home can be a daunting task. How do you know who to hire to turn

your vision into reality? Start with the following key qualities to make the process a little easier.

First consider those you hire to be your new business partners; people you’ll work closely with, make compromises with

and communicate with regularly.

Know what to delegate and what to maintain a tight control over. Set your budget and know which factors you’re

willing to compromise, especially time. Some homeowners will have all the time and ability to handle the build on their

own; however, most will want to collaborate and delegate to the expertise of well-chosen team members, especially the

designer, general contractor and subcontractors.

The process begins with a bit of research—knowing what options are available to you locally, and who you

might feel safe entrusting your vision to.

The vision begins with design. If you choose to hire an architect, most will guide the visionary aspect

of the build from concept to completion. Most architects also offer a variety of services for home

builders to select from. Be sure to discuss clear expectations with your prospective hire.

Another option is to hire a designer, who will likely have

different licensure but a comparable level of basic structural

design, space planning, detail and proportion as it relates

to building a home.

Ask for a designer’s local licensure and insurance

policy coverage. Some designers may work for

local contractors in a “design/build firm,” which

pairs design capability with a general contractor

and could save you a bit of work on compiling your home building team.

You can learn more about an architect or designer by reviewing their

portfolio, reviews and past work. Whoever you select should be able

to take on not only exterior design but ensuring the best use of your

existing space, including accessibility and functionality.

Check references and prepare to ask the

right questions, including how they charge,

the specific services they offer, how they

implement clients’ input, what should

happen to the design if you choose to

terminate for any reason before completion

of the project, and if the plans they produce

will be sufficient to obtain a building

permit.

For the build itself, consider hiring a

general contractor to oversee the process.

They can manage all aspects of the project,

secure key pieces like permits and code

inspections, supervise construction and

secure the subcontractors who specialize in

specific tasks related to the build.

A general contractor will usually charge

a flat fee or a percentage of the cost in

materials and labor to complete the build—

typically 10 to 25 percent.

You’ll also want to feel secure in the contractor’s credibility. A general

contractor can build credibility for themselves and their subcontractors

by working with some clients year after year, so references and reviews

will speak volumes.

Just like your designer, you’ll want to check the contractor’s local licensing

THE PROCESS BEGINS WITH A

BIT OF RESEARCH—KNOWING

WHAT OPTIONS ARE

AVAILABLE TO YOU LOCALLY,

AND WHO YOU MIGHT FEEL

SAFE ENTRUSTING YOUR

VISION TO.

and insurance. When you find your match, you’ll want to outline your

build in a contract that’s mutually agreed upon, including waivers that

protect you from any potential retribution from subcontractors.

It truly takes a team to build a home, and the average home takes about

22 subcontractors to build, for components like roofing, electricity,

plumbing, carpeting and more.

Depending on the amount of your own

time dedicated to invest in the build, you

have the option to reduce the need for

subcontractors by drawing on your own

skill set and finding a few things on your

own, such as lighting, fixtures and faucets.

Should you choose to act as your own

general contractor and hire subcontractors

you need, you have the potential to save

thousands. However, good contractors

do earn their fee. They’re licensed and

trained to estimate costs, and their prior

knowledge of local subcontractors, permit

offices and suppliers can ensure the best

use of your resources. They’ll often have

crews who are already well-versed in the

construction process.

The amount of time and resources you’ll

dedicate to building a home is entirely

up to you. No matter how much of the

project you’ll want to take on yourself, and how much you plan to

delegate, it’s important to do your research when it comes to selecting

your teammates in terms of design, construction and conception. Ask

questions, check reviews, set expectations, build a team who you can

comfortably trust with this major moment in life—and make the most

of every step toward your future home.

The 2020 look: BOLD, open and inviting

by Abigail Thorpe

1

OPEN CONCEPT

The penchant for a more open design has been around for a while, and it shows

no signs of going anywhere. People prefer an open concept that allows for a more

casual feel and relaxed entertaining. Hosts want to interact with their guests or

family while in the kitchen, and an open-concept design makes each space in your

home feel livable and useful. “There are a few different design styles surfacing

on all of the price points of homes,” says Dennis Cunningham from ActiveWest

Development and Building in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. “Some result in a simpler

design and clean lines.”

Continuity and flow are important in an open concept to make sure each

area flows into the next while still preserving its own unique functionality. It’s

important to plan ahead how you want your living space to feel and function.

GREEN/SUSTAINABLE

2

A major shift is toward more green and sustainable design that cuts energy

usage and focuses on sustainable product use and environmentally

friendly features. “The biggest changes in the building industry relate to

energy in one way or another,” says Brett Marlo DeSantis from Brett Marlo

Design Build in Gig Harbor, Washington, which is passionate about smallfootprint

healthy home design.

“Green building and living are becoming more mainstream and therefore

more achievable. And hopefully with more mainstream culture, increased

demand will decrease costs and allow for healthier choices in local stores

and more affordability,” she adds.

3

QUARTZ AND WOOD

Easy maintenance and natural finishes are today’s must haves. Quartz has

quickly become one of the most popular countertop choices because of its

durability and easy maintenance, unlike its popular predecessor granite.

A popular design choice continues the quartz as a backsplash in place of

tile—it maintains continuity and makes for easy cleaning.

Natural wood is making a grand comeback to add texture to kitchens and

living spaces. You’ll find it used on range hoods, as accent cabinets in the

kitchen to brighten an otherwise white space, or on the center island. It

brings warmth to the space and makes it feel more natural and timeless.

ROAD TRIP PART 2

British Columbia’s Kootenai Rockies and the

International Selkirk Loop

Story and Photos By Marguerite Cleveland

Last month our road trip ended in Christina Lake at the lovely Sunflower Inn B&B. The next destination is Rossland and continues

with a few days in the Kootenay Rockies before connecting with the International Selkirk Loop, the only multi-national scenic

drive in North America. Even doing just a portion of this 280-mile scenic drive is worth it. Gorgeous lakes and rivers with crystalclear

water surrounded by towering mountains makes for a beautiful drive. There are also cute little towns and the world’s longest

free ferry crossing.

Day 4: Rossland, British Columbia

It is just a 60-mile drive from Christina Lake to Rossland, British Columbia, so enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the Sunflower before starting

your day. Once you arrive, grab a coffee or other beverage from one of the downtown coffee shops and explore the town. Historic photos

sized like a mural line the main street. You can stand by an historic monument and have the same view as one of the photos taken in 1913.

There are a variety of shops and galleries worth taking a peek at.

The Rossland Museum is located on the site of the historic Le Roi Gold Mines. There are 5 acres to explore with mining exhibits located on

the grounds. The museum also serves as Rossland’s official visitors' center.

Next head out to the Red Mountain Resort. Plan to do a mountain hike. The Josie Hotel has a jazzy, modern vibe. On-site is the Velvet

Restaurant and Lounge, which is kicking out some rather good chow. Executive Chef Marc-Andre Choquette is an Iron Chef alum and the

menu is heavy on seasonal, hearty food. For an appetizer that should be called dessert, try the candied bacon. It lives up to the hype. Dine

inside with views of the mountain or out on the deck. A great way to spend the afternoon.

Enjoy the scenic drive into Nelson, which is your stop for the night. The Adventure Hotel is a fun place to stay and is geared to those who love

the outdoors. It has a bright, modern interior and is centrally located to all there is to see and do in Nelson. After checking in, take a walk

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

to Baker Street to partake of the restaurants, many with sidewalk seating.

Cantina del Centro is immensely popular with the locals. Fresh Latin

American cuisine is served up with 70 varieties of Tequila and Mezcal, as

well as beautifully crafted cocktails. The street tacos are memorable with

a variety of choices. Choose two or three to make a meal.

Day 5: Nelson

Get an early start today so you have time for breakfast and kayaking

before checkout time at the hotel. Oso Negro is a great place to start your

day. This indoor art gallery and breakfast stop serves up more than 20

different blends of coffee to enjoy with seasonal breakfast options. Eat

among the works of talented local artists or outside in the garden.

After a quick stop at the Adventure Hotel to freshen up and check out,

head into town to visit Touchstones Nelson Museum of Arts and History

to learn about the town and surrounding areas. A popular hike in the

area is to Pulpit Rock for its spectacular views of Nelson Kootenay Lake.

Highly recommended by locals is the little town of Kaslo. It is just north

of Ainsworth Hot Springs, your stop for the night, so you will have to

double back—but so worth it. The scenic drive along Highway 31 is truly

impressive. It is hard to imagine how the road was even built when the

mountains run right to the lake. Kaslo is a quaint town that is like a step

back in time. Perched on the banks of a beautiful lake, the historic town

is well worth the detour with breathtaking views everywhere you walk,

cute shops and many choices to grab a meal.

The Prestige Lakeside Resort is located on the banks of the west arm of

Kootenay Lake and offers boat rentals from their dock, which is home to

Nelson Paddleboard and Kayak. Rent your watercraft of choice and head

out on the lake. Morning hours often have no wind, and the scenery has

mountains that come almost to the edge of the lake. Very tranquil.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

51

Head back to Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort for the night. The hot springs

get crowded, so plan to go in the morning when it is only open for hotel

guests. Located near the hotel is the JB Fletcher Store, a museum and

local artisan shop. Worth the trek down the hill. The Ktunaxa Grill, the

on-site restaurant, has great service, and the indigenous-inspired menu is

constructed of fresh, local ingredients. Reservations are a must.

Day 6: Bonners Ferry, Idaho

First thing in the morning, visit the

Ainsworth Hot Springs. It is so nice without

all the crowds. The complex includes a pool

fed by the spring, a cold plunge pool fed by

Munn Creek and a dimly lit cave. It is not for

the faint of heart as it is like a dark tunnel.

Have breakfast at the hotel before checking

out.

Head to Balfour to catch the Kootenay Lake

Ferry to Kootenay Bay. You are now on the

International Selkirk Loop. There are no

reservations, so check the times and arrive

early for the 35-minute ferry crossing. This is

the longest free ferry in the world—and one

of the most scenic. While you wait there are

plenty of shops, restaurants and a bakery at

the ferry landing.

Once you arrive in Kootenay Bay, follow Highway 3A south to Bonners

Ferry, Idaho. Along the way enjoy the eastern shore of Kootenay Lake.

Stop at Crawford Bay, a unique community of artisans’ studios. As you

continue south there are small towns, shops and beaches for photo ops.

Before crossing the border make a detour in Creston to visit two wineries,

Skimmerhorn Winery and Vineyard and the Baillie-Grohman Winery,

that are thriving in the microclimate of the area.

Cross the border into Idaho and head to Bonners Ferry for the night. The

Best Western Plus Kootenai River Inn Casino & Spa is in a great location

next to the river and has a pedestrian tunnel to access the downtown area.

There are restaurants on-site, or head through the tunnel to access the

visitors’ center and local downtown eating establishments.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

52

Day 7: Last Day

In the morning, head 6 miles east to the Kootenai National Wildlife

Refuge. There is a visitors’ center with a hike nearby to a waterfall.

Additional hikes are available as well as a 4.5-mile auto tour. There is

a good chance you will see moose, elk, deer, or rarer a bear. Birds are

abundant including bald eagles and migratory waterfowl. After spending

time in the refuge continue to explore the U.S. side of the International

Selkirk Loop or head home. You are about a six-hour drive to Seattle,

Washington, which is a major airline hub.

An unforgettable family road trip adventure awaits. It’s time to start

planning.

SEE YOU

AT THE

MARKET!

Bonners Ferry Farmers’ Market is open and ready for business

By Jillian Chandler

LIFE IS SLOWLY RETURNING BACK TO NORMAL, AND THE TIMING

COULDN’T BE BETTER, as farmers’ market season has returned

to the Inland Northwest.

Known as one of the oldest farmers markets in the state of Idaho,

the Bonners Ferry Farmers’ Market opened for its 2020 season on

April 25, with special precautions set in place to keep all in the

community—both vendors and shoppers—safe.

For the time being, there will be just one entrance to the market,

and there will be extra space between each booth. Customers

are asked to please shop considerately, observing crowd spacing

and keeping their distance from the vendors, the products

(vendors will be the only ones handling the products) and other

market customers. They also ask shoppers to limit the number

of attendees per family. A handwashing station will be available

on-site and shoppers are encouraged to use it as they enter the

market.

Please be sure to follow the current protocols:

• Maintain a 6-foot physical distance for patrons and employees.

• Provide adequate sanitation and stipulate how personal items

such as masks and gloves shall be worn.

• It is encouraged that employees, vendors and patrons wear

face coverings.

Not only does the Bonners Ferry Farmers’ Market offer local

growers and craftsmen the opportunity to sell and showcase

their goods, it also provides the community a place to come

together and interact with one another—at a safe distance of

course!

The Bonners Ferry Farmers' Market invites the community to

join them every Saturday, 8am to 1pm, at City Parking Lot.

The market continues all summer long, with the last market

of the season to take place Saturday, October 3. For additional

information, visit BonnersFerryFarmersMarket.org.

It’s time to get outdoors and shop the market! And be sure to

save the date for two upcoming special events at the Bonners

Ferry Farmers' Market: June 6 marks its 40th Anniversary Party,

followed by Kids' Day on June 27.

June

FOR MORE EVENTS, VISIT BONNERSFERRYLIVINGLOCAL.COM.

21 JUNE

27 JUNE

Pennsylvania was the first state to establish Flag Day as a legal holiday

back in 1937. Today Flag Day is observed nationwide, though not as a legal

holiday. Flag Day is celebrated on June 14 each year to honor the United

States flag and to commemorate its adoption of stars and stripes as the

official flag of the United States. You can help celebrate by displaying your

flag in front of your home or business. June 14 is also the day that the

United States Army celebrates its birthday, with 2020 marking 245 years

since the U.S. Army as we know it today was founded.

FATHER'S DAY

21

Though your traditional Father's Day plans may have been deterred

because of current protocols, we are fortunate that Bonners Ferry is home

to so many adventures! Now that businesses have opened back up, make

reservations to treat Dad to a meal at a local restaurant of his choice or

purchase a gift certificate to one of his favorite local stores or shops to pick

out a gift of his liking! And as the great outdoors abound, you can always

opt to get in a weekend fishing or camping trip. It's not so much how you

spend Father's Day, but who you spend it with. Help make this a Father's

Day Dad will remember for years to come.

9B ARENACROSS

27

2020 marks the third year of the 9B Arenacross in Bonners Ferry, and

as of press time, planning was still underway for the event, with the date

scheduled for June 27 at the Boundary County Fairgrounds (pending Stage

4 requirements). From 6 to 9pm, with gates opening at 5pm, this is a fun

and entertaining evening of motocross racing for the entire family, as some

of the region's top racers will be competing for a combined total of more

than $10,000 in cash and prizes. Tickets to attend are priced $10 to $15. To

stay up to date on the event details, including a possible date change, visit

9BArenacross.com or search 9B Arenacross on Facebook.
