his summer has been one

to remember, though

possibly one many would

like to forget. As our

wonderful community

events continued to be

canceled left and right for the concern of our

health and safety, it almost felt as if we had

been stripped of what makes summertime

here truly memorable year after year. But,

maybe this could be a blessing in disguise for

so many of us. Summer is still here, and now

more than ever we have the opportunity to

spend more quality time with our families

than usual.

Despite the uncertainties, we continue to

work and play in this place we call home—

even if that means finding new ways to get

outdoors and take in the beauty and unique

opportunities our town has to offer. Don’t

let another day pass you by without seizing

those moments and creating memories with

those most dear to you by your side.

Before we know it, the long days of summer

will be behind us, and it will be back to

routine—whatever that may look like, as so

much is still unknown. The kids will be back

in school, whether that be in a structured

school setting or in the comfort of your

own home via remote learning. Sports will

once again be making their return, adding

some excitement and friendly competition

amongst the players—and their audience.

Life will continue, and we will continue to

adapt to the changes and challenges that

come with it.

Despite all that is going on around us, we

can take comfort in knowing that our

community remains strong, and together,

we will survive and once again thrive.

As you read through the August issue of

Bonners Ferry Living Local, you will be

reminded of the wonderful place we live and

the incredible people who surround us daily.

We are truly fortunate, and it is a reminder

to be grateful for the gift we’ve been given

to live in, and be a part of, such a caring

community.

Memories are ready to be made, and

Bonners Ferry is the perfect place to

create them.

A Warm Welcome and Comfortable Stay

SETTING UP YOUR SHORT-TERM RENTAL

By Nikki Luttmann, Seven Bee Interiors

For Sandpoint Furniture, Carpet One and Selkirk Glass and Cabinets

So many people are falling in love with our area and purchasing

a second home here. If that is you, congratulations! If, instead,

you are from here and decided to take advantage of this boom we

are experiencing and rent out your home for short-term rentals

(STRs), congratulations! If, like me, you just live here and don’t have

a second home, still—congratulations! We live in a beautiful area that

people love to visit.

Setting up your property to rent, however, can be intimidating. I’ve

worked on many rental properties, and the competition is fierce for the

high-dollar rentals. Part of the issue is the pressure from social media.

Rental companies and, indeed, renters, would like their vacation homes

to be Instagram and Facebook worthy. They want a vacation home that

comes with bragging rights. But how does one accomplish this and

still account for the fact that items may be stolen, damaged, broken,

misplaced or misused?

When outfitting a short-term rental, the first thing I do is assess the

surfaces. Anything worn, damaged or unsightly needs to be repaired or

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

12

replaced ASAP. This goes for flooring, cabinetry, carpeting, countertops

and all bathrooms and plumbing fixtures. I also look at heat sources and

ventilation. It might be summertime swelter to us locals, but someone

visiting from Arizona or Georgia might find our chilly summer nights a

bit on the frigid side. Comfort is key. Ceiling fans and air conditioning

must also be in good working order. If none exist, a good-quality floor

or table fan is definitely a must—especially in bedrooms. All doors and

windows must also be in good working order, with locks on bathroom

doors, if possible.

A fresh coat of paint is always appreciated, as are clean carpets, maintained

fireplaces and appliances, a full kitchen—including cookware and basic

spices. Towels and linens are a must, as are clean sheets and ultra-clean

bedding. It should look and feel like a hotel but with a “homey” twist.

Curb appeal is important as well. That first glimpse of the home when

people pull up really begins their experience. If you do not live here full

time, make sure that you have a landscaper or someone maintaining

the lawn and front garden beds. Hot tubs are a plus, but of course, not

necessary, as are fire pits. However, it is a good

idea to leave your renters with instructions for

both! Instructions for any unusual or high-end

appliances are also a good idea and may prevent

unwanted mishaps.

For furnishings, the focus is usually on beds.

“How many does it sleep?” is a common question

in the world of STRs. However, this question

should be addressed within reason. Bunk beds

are a plus, but not always necessary. Sometimes

queen-sized beds in each bedroom work just

as well, as family members can double up if

needed, including kids. Pull-out sofas are also

recommended, but again, not always necessary. If

you’d like to focus on quality instead of quantity,

that is certainly acceptable. As well, I’ve worked

on STRs where instead of a huge room of beds

we’ve placed good-quality sleeping bags on the

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

floor of a bonus room, and the kids have had a

great time, treating it like a campout!

Interior decor should be simple, tasteful and area

specific. Signs reading “Welcome to the Lake” or

“Relax, You’re at the Cabin” are welcome. Family

photos and other personal memorabilia are

not. People love their vacations to be beautiful

and fun, but not stressful. Your STR is not the

place for your grandmother’s china or pristine

antique dining table. Items need to be somewhat

affordable and replaceable, just in case an

accident occurs. A short-term vacation home

is a place where your guests don’t want to have

to worry about their surroundings. The best gift

you can give them is a comfortable bed, a simple

but cohesive interior and a warm Bonners Ferry

welcome!

Why I Value Thinking Partners

TRUSTED PEOPLE WHO ENCOURAGE A HIGHER LEVEL OF AWARENESS INCREASE OUR

CAPACITY TO THINK CLEARLY, TO ACT INTENTIONALLY AND TO LEAD EFFECTIVELY

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

As we all transition into a world

indelibly changed, much of the

conversation around us is about

“living in the new normal.” Should

we expect more of the confusion and chaotic

energy that has permeated much of the past

few months? Or will we have a foundation of

awareness and understanding to build on?

Whatever the answers to these questions are, I

want to thrive in that environment. I want to

think and act in a way that encourages me to

be the person who will do the things that create

the life I want to live, and I want people I care

about to have the tools to do the same.

This is why, over these past few months, I have

separated myself from things and people who

invite the chaos and confusion, and I have

chosen to focus on those guiding principles I

know to be true: fundamental, foundational

beliefs not subject to my circumstances. I

have also chosen to invest time with thinking

partners I trust, people who know me, who

understand and support my vision, who will

help me stay focused, and who will engage in

ongoing conversations that encourage a higher

level of awareness.

What is a Thinking Partner?

While the term “thinking partner” is often

used interchangeably with “mentor,” there

are important differences. In a mentor

relationship, one person is seeking a higher

level of understanding the other person has

achieved. There is a distinct master-student

dynamic, rather than a peer relationship.

While both thinking partners and mentors are

trusted friends who challenge our thinking

and encourage a higher level of awareness,

thinking partner interaction is more of a twoway

street. Each person contributes wisdom

and perspective, actively listens for limited

thinking, and offers ideas that help us think

bigger and see more clearly. Because of this,

each person benefits from the counsel and

encouragement of the other.

The Value of a Thinking Partner

When we choose to engage honestly and

intentionally with a thinking partner, especially

in times of uncertainty and confusion, we

put ourselves in the position to view our

situation from a different perspective, which

often reveals opportunities or issues we might

not have seen. This kind of limited vision is

common even in less-stressful times, because

as we grow accustomed to “what’s working,” we

get stuck in the loop of our own comfortable

inner monologue, and we fail to explore other,

potentially better, ideas.

A trusted thinking partner brings a fresh

perspective that helps us build on what we

already have or helps us create a whole new

approach. Thinking partners challenge our

thinking in a way that draws us out of our

comfort zone; reveal faulty assumptions,

leading to shifts in how we think about ideas,

view challenges and approach solutions; and

instigate innovation, creativity and inspiration.

As we let go of preconceptions and assumptions

and allow the mutually beneficial listening and

sharing to work, these interactions lift the lid

on our limited thinking and reveal unexplored

ideas and opportunities we may otherwise miss.

In this way, my thinking partners continue to

help me maintain focus, be positive and stay

strong as we all move forward together. Who

are your thinking partners, and how have they

helped you?

REMEMBERING 100 YEARS

The bounty of Boundary County Fair

By Abigail Thorpe

THIS YEAR

MARKS

THE 100TH

ANNIVERSARY

OF A COUNTY

TRADITION

THAT REMAINS

AT ITS HEART A

CELEBRATION.

Every summer since 1920, growers and

livestock owners have met to display their

goods, learn from and socialize with one

another. It’s formed an annual tradition of

community spirit, appreciation and kinship that is the

Boundary County Fair.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of a county

tradition that remains at its heart a celebration of the

community, the individuals, and the commitment to

family and land that marks our northern community.

The first fair, held in 1920, reminds us of why we

continue the tradition every year. “The officers of

the fair association desire to call attention to the

importance of holding an annual fair. The exhibitors

are brought together in friendly competition and thus

are stimulated to grow better agricultural products

and raise better livestock. Each man sees what his

neighbor has produced or raised and, if interested,

may learn what methods were pursued to accomplish

the results attained. Every farmer of the county

should endeavor to bring in exhibits and to work to

make this, our first fair, a grand success … Remember,

this is your fair,” - 1920 Boundary County Fair Book.

“The fair serves the community by providing a

summer activity that everyone can get involved with,”

says Boundary County Fair Administrator Paula

Burt. It provides a space for anyone to enter an exhibit

in a wide array of categories—it’s not only a venue for

4-H and FFA students. “Fair seems to be the one event

the county looks forward to every summer. It’s a time

when friends who haven’t seen one another during

the year seem to catch up with each other,” adds Burt.

Every summer the fair is a time North Idaho

communities can gather and share their talents, pass

along helpful tips, celebrate community and farming,

and enjoy some simple, old-fashioned fun.

Many board members and attendees have

participated in the fair for years—if not generations.

Board Member Glenda Poston’s mother served as a

flower superintendent and then general super for

the Boundary County Fair for decades, and Poston

herself has been involved for 40-plus years. “One year

I would see all of these beautiful cakes, pies, cookies

[and] breads go to waste,” she recalls. “So I thought,

‘Let’s auction them off.’ Well, you know the rest of the

story. The proceeds from those auctions have assisted

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

16


in many improvements within the exhibit hall.”

In past years, they would dedicate the fair to an

individual who was a sort of figure head or “fixture”

of the fair, before a fair “queen” or “fairest of the

fair” became the tradition. Poston’s mother was one

such individual honored, in addition to many other

beloved locals. “Doris Howard was so excited the

year she won, and then there was Irene Rice and

many more,” recalls Poston. “A lot of these folks

have left us, but the memories that we have from

them are priceless.”

Besides the livestock exhibitions, the fair always

includes local growers and artists exhibiting their

goods, and the fair food is always a favorite for

fairgoers. This year the Boundary County Fair

anticipates adding new vendors to provide more

variety for visitors.

Mortgage

rates

are low.

In light of the current health crisis, the fair board is

working hard to provide a safe, clean environment

for everyone for the fair anticipated to be held

August 12 through 15 at the fairgrounds in

Bonners Ferry.

Board members don’t expect the fair can be

postponed: “We have animals that need to be

sold, garden crops only last so long, etc.,” explains

Poston. But the board is prepared to change

plans or address issues as needed as the fair date

approaches.

There will be a free concert this year on Thursday

night sponsored by P1FCU and Coldwell Banker

Northwoods Realty, featuring Christy Lee and

Marshall Catch Band. Children can look forward to

the magician, who will be performing throughout

the fair weekend, and there will be games for all

ages on Saturday, along with a parade.

For years the fair has been a fixture of the Bonners

Ferry community and an anticipated event to

celebrate and have fun. “It brings people together;

some people will only see each other on a yearly

basis while at the fair,” says Poston.

Protecting Your Interests Since 1915

This year the board and community hope things

will be no different—though slightly altered to

allow for the safety and health of all attendees. “Our

senior community so loves the fair, and I enjoy

seeing them there taking in all the different exhibits

and events, but I certainly want to keep them safe

from these health concerns,” explains Poston.

The fair board will do everything they can to make

this year’s fair possible—and safe. Look forward to

celebrating 100 years of North Idaho’s beloved fair

at the anniversary of the Boundary County Fair:

“From Pioneer Days to Modern Ways.”

TRAIL SYSTEMS

EXPAND

Recent grant allows more progress

for local organization

By Colin Anderson | Photos Courtesy of 9B Trails

9B

Trails donors and volunteers have been busy blazing new

trails, and a recent grant will help the organization continue

to make more land available for non-motorized recreation.

A sizable grant from the Innovia Foundation will help finalize two

non-motorized trailheads by furnishing parking lots, signage, and the

purchase of a new snow cat that can be used for trail building and winter

grooming at Section 16 and Enchanted Forest, according to 9B Trails

President Tess Rae.

The Enchanted Forest is 1,100 acres that

is slated to offer 30 miles of trails, with 4.2

miles currently built. Section 16 is slated to

offer 11.5 miles of single track, with 6 miles

currently built, and also offer 3.2 miles of

logging road.

“The Innovia grant bridges the gap between

volunteers and committed donations

by providing gravel, grading and costs

associated with installing parking lots.

Proper parking is crucial to maintaining our

vision,” says Tess. That vision is “to create

trails, while also preserving and protecting

our natural resources for today, tomorrow

and for generations to come.”

Both Section 16 and Enchanted Forest offer

mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing

and Nordic opportunities all very close to

"Our goal is to

provide easy

access for people

of all ages to get

outside without

having to drive too

far from town."

town. “Section 16 is awesome and provides a little bit of something for

everyone. Not only are we seeing moms showing up with their small

children to ride their bikes on the small loop, but we are also seeing

experienced mountain bikers out on the bigger looped trail getting quite

a cardio workout,” says Trail Chief Scott Bourassa.

Tess says she is most thankful for the great diverse team of dedicated

trail volunteers who are making the plan a

reality. “From mountain bikers, hikers, trail

runners, snowshoers and cross-country

skiers, together our goal is to provide easy

access for people of all ages to get outside

without having to drive too far from town.”

With plenty of trail system left to build, 9B

Trails is always on the lookout for a few

more folks who enjoy a little time digging

in the woods. Each Monday through the

rest of the summer, volunteers will meet up

at the Enchanted Forest on the Farnsworth

property at 5:30pm. The trailhead and

parking area is located at 456 Hoot Owl

Road. You’ll find the parking area next to

a green shed and port-a-potty. Tools are

provided, and kids are welcome to attend

as well. Each session lasts about two to

two-and-a-half hours. For additional

information, you can visit 9BTrails.org.

THE BOUNDARY

COUNTY WAY

LOCAL GROWER AND CANNER

SHARES HER PASSION FOR

GARDENING AND FOOD SAFETY

BY ABIGAIL THORPE

Shirley Anderson moved to Boundary County in 1974 and has

since lived on Highland Flats with her husband for 40 years.

She discovered her passion for giving back to the community

during her time volunteering at her children’s school.

She earned her Master Gardener certification from U of I and

now volunteers her time to help educate the public in Boundary County

about gardening practices and food safety. “I am now at a point in my

life where I can combine my interest in gardening and ‘anything in the

kitchen’ with my desire to work with a wide group of people,” she says.

Anderson has manned a booth at the Farmers’ Market, managed two

“Little Free Gardens” sponsored by the local community garden, and

helped at the Plant Clinic at the Extension Office to identify garden pests

and other issues.

“The Master Gardener group, led by U of I Extension Educator Kate

Painter, has positively impacted our community, sharing education

and hands-on guidance,” she explains. “Our Master Gardener group is

involved in numerous activities

beyond what I personally

contribute, as we strive to advance

best practices in our community.”

Anderson cans, freezes, dries and

stores in her cellar everything she

can gather from her large garden

and is passionate about sharing

her knowledge of growing

and sustainability with the

community.

She participated in the University

of Idaho’s Master Food Preservers

program in 1982 and has been

involved with University of

Idaho's Master Food Safety

Advisor program that started

last year in Bonners Ferry. “The

education I received from the U of

I has been important personally,

but I enjoy sharing the wealth of

knowledge that is available, and

have helped with several classes, where safely preserving food has been

emphasized and/or cooking techniques have been explored,” she says.

Anderson’s passion extends beyond her own garden and canning

activities. She recently did a cast-iron workshop for a homesteading

group and offered an herb mini class for the 4-H farm tour—just

a sampling of her work in the community. Her grandparents and

extended family farmed, raising all of the fruits, vegetables and meats

they consumed, and the desire to continue this tradition and skill is

evident in all the ways she extends her knowledge to the community.

“You don’t have to look further than the latest Facebook post, blog

or newspaper front page to know that the world is rapidly changing,”

Anderson explains. “Check out the country of origin on any fresh fruit

or vegetable in a local grocery store today, and you know that our food

is traveling long distances to reach us. With the impact that we are

beginning to see on the shelves in our favorite shopping center because

of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, isn’t it time to consider the benefits

of gardening and safe food preservation?”

Anderson is part of what makes the Bonners Ferry community so unique

and special. There are many educators and volunteers—just like her—

who are happy to give their time to expand a love of growing and food

safety, and share just how much it can benefit those in their community.

SCHOLARSHIPS

AWARDED

Three deserving athletes receive 2020 Kootenai

River Run Scholarship

BY JILLIAN CHANDLER

Like so many other wonderful events

that the community looks forward

to during the summer months, the

annual Kootenai River Run has been

canceled for 2020. And though that news

brings disappointment to so many, there is

some exciting news to brighten spirits. Each

year, the Kootenai River Run awards $1,000

scholarships to two deserving student athletes.

Last year, Shelman Realty became a sponsor,

partnering with the Kootenai River Run and

contributing an additional $1,500 through

the Shelman Realty Kootenai River Run

Scholarship.

“We didn’t have a qualified candidate in 2019

to accept the new scholarship Shelman Realty

offered,” says Paul Bonnell, “so we’re especially

excited to have three deserving students

this year who can all be rewarded for their

excellence in cross country and track and field

as well, as being stewards of this community.”

The 2020 scholarship recipients include Austin

Donn, Serenity Fahey and Abigail Gorton.

“We could not be more proud of these three and

their high school careers,” says Tyler Warner,

Bonners Ferry High School’s cross-country

coach. “We knew going into this year that

choosing scholarships out of this class would

be difficult, and we’re so happy that Shelman

Realty was able to step in and help us support

three deserving individuals.”

Austin plans to attend North Idaho College

starting this fall, where he has been accepted

into the welding program. Machining and

design are also of interest to him.

Serenity, who participated in band, completed

college classes through North Idaho College’s

Bonners Ferry Center and competed in the

Distinguished Young Women, will be attending

Lewis Clark State College, where she will be

studying nursing.

Abigail will be joining Serenity in the nursing

program at Lewis Clark State College. In

addition to her studies, Abigail will be

competing in cross country and track for LCSC.

“They work hard, do the little things well,

listen, encourage and always give their best in

the classroom and in racing,” affirms Warner.

“They are good athletes but even better people.

BFHS distance running is in a better place for

their participation these last four years, and we

know they’ll go on to greater things in their

post-secondary education.”

Though there will be no Kootenai River Run

this year, Jim Cadnum, race director, is already

looking forward to next year’s event. “Next

year’s race is going to be our best one yet,” he

says. “We plan to advertise early and increase

our participation by offering an even higher

level of the fun our race has become known for.”

This includes bands along the course, merchant

discounts in the race bags and fantastic prizes

donated by generous local business owners.

And, he adds, they’ve got a few surprises in the

works that they can’t disclose just yet. You can

find Kootenai River Run on Facebook for upto-date

details on the 2021 run, as well as other

helpful information.

Congratulations Austin, Serenity and Abigail.

NORTH IDAHO

IN FOCUS

CANINE COMPANION

UNIQUE SERVICE DOG TO ASSIST NORTH IDAHO TEEN

BY COLIN ANDERSON

Since being diagnosed with Type 1

diabetes (T1D) at the age of 8, Carson

Magee has devoted much of his young

life to bringing awareness about the

condition to the masses. He’s conducted

fundraisers by unicycling long distances;

invented technology that helps others like him;

and even lobbied from North Idaho to Boise to

Washington DC, securing funds and awareness

days on behalf of the thousands of children

across the nation dealing with T1D.

Unlike Type 2 diabetes which can often be

managed with diet, exercise and medication,

there is no cure for Type 1. People like Carson

need insulin pumped in or injected many times

a day in order to survive. This means constant

monitoring of insulin levels throughout the

day and night. Most T1D patients wear a

continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and, while

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

very reliable, it’s a technology that can still fail,

which could lead to Carson having a seizure—

or worse.

Carson is now 17 years old and entering his

senior year at Coeur d’Alene High School. Since

his diagnosis his mother has been by his side,

helping him maintain proper insulin levels,

especially during the night. Carson plans on

attending college upon graduation and, like

most his age, would prefer not have his parents

crash in the dorms with him. So when the time

comes to leave home, instead of bringing his

mom, he’ll instead be bringing his DAD.

Lily Grace has trained service dogs for more

than 30 years. These include emotional,

mobility and autism support animals. But

since the early 2000s she has specialized in

training diabetic alert dogs (DAD). “In 2002,

24

I started putting videos up on the internet,”

explained Lily. “I had to convince people it was

real, and after a few years it was no longer just

educating people but had become widespread

acceptance.”

Lily moved to Sandpoint about three years

ago with her eyes on retirement, and this year

she planned on one more litter of pups before

calling it a career. The last litter was supposed

to contain five puppies, but to Lily’s surprise the

final count ended up being nine; several more

than she was looking to train. Training starts at

just three days old, and because of the amount

of time it takes to fully train a diabetic alert dog,

their cost can run into the many thousands of

dollars. “Families often put on fundraisers to

get one,” says Lily. “It’s a huge investment, not

just monetary but your time and commitment

as well.” Carson had heard about these dogs

since he was very young but, like many, the cost

was a big obstacle. That and his only previous

pet experience was raising a goldfish. Carson’s

mother Fondra had been in contact with

Lily prior to the litter being born, which had

opened the door. After meeting Carson, Lily

was quickly convinced he had the work ethic

and commitment to raise one of these dogs and

offered Carson a puppy free of charge. “I can

always get a gut feeling, and I just know when

it’s gonna be a right match,” says Lily. “I knew

he would be a great person to have one of these

dogs and following through. He’s very steady,

dependable, and you know he can take this on.”

With school closed in March, Lily knew Carson

would have the time needed to properly train

his new dog, a Goldendoodle/Yellow Lab he has

named Capo, and she began laying out detailed

training from afar. The first steps of training a

DAD are very similar to any puppy class. The

dog is exposed to many different odors from

humans, animals and environments, which

help build the neuropathways from the nose to

scent receptors in the brain. Next the diabetic

scent is added. To do this Carson places cotton

balls in his mouth when his blood sugar is both

high and low. The balls are then placed inside

tins with holes poked into the top. Capo is then

encouraged to paw at the high or low scent and

is rewarded when he paws the correct tin.

“At 11 weeks he was already alerting me by

pawing at me, which is pretty impressive for a

dog that just learned not to pee in the house,”

laughs Carson.

“From here it’s all about click and reward,”

explains Lily. “We build it up so that they

absolutely love the odor.”

Capo’s next steps are obedience and being

comfortable in crowded spaces. Carson teaches

him all the basic commands and takes him

to the mall, grocery stores and restaurants

so he can get used to being around people

and noise. He likens much of the experience

to being a new parent. “It’s like raising a new

baby,” he says. “Realizing I’ve done something

and watching Capo grow has been a very fun

experience.”

If in-person classes resume this fall, Carson will

bring Capo to school with him. At first, Capo

will go for a couple hours each week and will

progress to longer days. Meanwhile, Carson

continues to send videos and receive coaching

from Lily. “At first it seemed unattainable

to train a service dog, but it’s cool to have

someone coach me through all the training,”

says Carson.

Lily knew it would be a challenge for Carson

but also noted that everything just fell into

place for him. “I’ve found kids Carson’s age,

their brains are like sponges, they learn very

quickly. When COVID hit at the same time

and with him home instead of school, it was a

perfect time for him to train all day at home,”

she says.

For Lily, it’s two more puppies and then she’s

calling it a career. She’s very happy to have been

able to help such a deserving young man, and

like the many T1D patients who’ve received her

dogs over the years, she continues to encourage

using everything available to them to stay

healthy. “Monitors can go off and the dog is an

added tool, but it’s important to listen to all of

your tools. Once you are out on your own, it’s

just you, your dog and your CGM,” she said.

While Carson hasn’t decided exactly what

school he wants to attend, Capo will ultimately

be going with him. Carson will continue to

wear the continuous glucose monitor but says

Capo is already alerting him to spikes before

the wearable technology. “He’s the best tool I’ve

had since being diagnosed,” he says.

Seeing a child leave the house is both a proud

and worrisome time for all parents. For

Carson’s mom Fondra, knowing he will have

Capo by his side will provide some comfort

during the nights she is no longer by his side.

For Carson, it’s one more tool that helps him to

live life to the fullest. “The CGM helps me a lot,

but it’s another device that can fail. Eventually

Capo will wake me up (when I need insulin)

and will be more precise and more accurate.”

"As the spa grew, I was able to expand the

team, and now I am surrounded every

day by incredible, inspiring women who

have become friends. I feel extremely

fortunate to work with women who share

my vision and passion."

Born and raised in Sandpoint, Brianna Williams introduced Refined

Aesthetics Med Spa to the community in 2017. Bri, who has a degree

in nursing, transitioned into the field of aesthetics with the purpose of

wanting to help women and men feel beautiful and confident. Today,

that still remains her number one objective and the reason she continues to do

what she loves.

Bri is excited to announce that Refined Aesthetics has recently made its home

at a new location. The med spa can now be found at 215 Cedar Street in the

heart of Downtown Sandpoint.

“It is rewarding to have the spa grow and become a bigger presence in the

community that I have adored my whole life. We get to be part of Sandpoint’s

story,” smiles Bri. “The building that we are now in was Neiman’s flower store

when I was growing up. It is nice to know the history of our building and to be

part of the evolution going forward.”

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

As Refined Aesthetics has expanded over the years, so has its staff. “When I first

started the spa a few years ago, I was thrilled to be in the aesthetic industry, but

I was working solo. As the spa grew, I was able to expand the team, and now

I am surrounded every day by incredible, inspiring women who have become

friends. I feel extremely fortunate to work with women who share my vision

and passion,” says Bri.

my clients and hearing their stories; where they are from, what they do

for work, how many children they have. My life has been enriched by

the connections I get to make every day.”

since day one, and her husband Chris, who has been by her side every

step of the way. “The recent move to our new location was a lot of

work. Luckily, no blood, but plenty of sweat and tears,” Bri says. “I

couldn’t do it without my awesome team and family.”

When not caring for her clients, Bri spends her time giving back to

the Sandpoint community in various ways. For the past several years,

she has been involved with 7B Women and their annual Boobs and

Beer Fun Run, benefiting local cancer services. “It is important to

me to give back to the community that I love and to show my young

daughters the importance of philanthropy,” Bri says. “I love that I now

have a team that is just as eager to get involved and give back. We are

working on some of our own fundraiser and charitable endeavors.”

Bri is grateful to the community in which she lives and to her clients,

whom she is dedicated to. “It is incredibly rewarding to help others

feel better about themselves. I get to lift my clients up and empower

them,” she says. “When a client sends me an email or text to say thank

you, and that they have never felt more beautiful … that is why I do

what I do.”

She is grateful to her family who has been supportive of her dream

FROM WALLA WALLA

to Hollywood

THE LIFE AND CAREER OF ADAM WEST

BY JOHN J. RASPANTI

PHOTOS COURTESY OF JONATHAN GRANT

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

30


SOMETIMES A CAREER STARTS WITH A DREAM.

When he was a young boy growing up on a farm in Walla Walla, Washington, Adam West, born William West Anderson, went to the movies

every Saturday afternoon. He loved it, spending all day caught up in the fantasy world of cowboys and Indians. He knew this mythical place called

"Hollywood," where the movies were made, was where he wanted to be someday.

West knew a little about the place from his mother, a pianist and opera singer, who had gone to Tinseltown on a scholarship. She gave up her career

when his brother was born. West never forgot how different she was when she came back to the farm after his brother's birth. Depression drove her to

drink. As a result, he vowed to make it in the world she couldn’t.

West’s father worked the farm with no illusions of grandeur. When the teenaged West, who was class president of his high school, and a star athlete,

told his father what he wanted to do with his life, his father disapproved. No matter. West had made up his mind. Needing a backup plan in case he

failed, he delayed his trip to Hollywood and enrolled at Whitman College in Walla Walla, graduating with a degree in Literature in 1951. That same

year he married Billie Lou Yeager and picked up work as a disc jockey at a local radio station before moving to Northern California and enrolling at

Stanford University for a little over a month. An audition led to work for a newspaper chain where West did voice work and wrote shows.

Drafted into the military, West served his time producing U.S. Army television shows. When his two-year service ended, he went to New York and

worked days as a milkman and nights as a master of ceremonies. At this point in his career, his deep smooth voice was his biggest asset. The Gypsy

life continued when West moved to Hawaii, working in theater, television, commercials, and directing TV shows. After appearing in a production

of “Picnic,” a Hollywood agent contacted him. West’s dream had never been far from his thoughts. He had divorced and remarried and was the

father of two young children. He had a friend take a picture of him sitting on a ragged old horse, dressed as a cowboy. He sent the photo to Warner

Brothers who, after receiving it, called him to come to the studio. After finding a place for his family to live, West went to the Warner lot in Burbank,

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

California, and did a reading. The studio immediately signed him

to a one-year contract. West, 31, was ecstatic. It had been a long

road to Hollywood, but now he was working at the same studio

that made the classic film “Casablanca.”

Growing up on a farm served as training for the actor now

known professionally as Adam West. Cast in numerous westerns,

very popular at the time, West was skillful on a horse and looked

good in fights and shootouts. He co-starred in such hit television

shows as “Lawman,” “Sugarfoot,” “Colt.45” and “Cheyenne.” He

had a recurring role (as a different character) in the two popular

series “77 Sunset Strip” and “Maverick.” All in all, West appeared

in 15 different television programs along with debuting in the

film “The Young Philadelphians.”

Things were going well, and then, they weren’t. Warner Brothers

declined the option for a second year on West’s contract. So he

freelanced, appearing on television in “Bonanza,” “The Rifleman”

and “Perry Mason” before landing a regular role on “The

Detectives.” West showed up in “Bewitched” and then played it

straight alongside The Three Stooges in the feature “The Outlaws

Is Coming” in 1965. West was now a working actor making good

money. But stardom seemed remote until a commercial changed

his life. West was Captain Q, selling Nestle Quik in a parody of the

James Bond films. He was amusing and nonchalant. Apparently,

executives at ABC saw the 30-second spot and thought West

would be perfect in a new television series they were set to make.

The name of the show was “Batman.”

West, who as a kid, loved reading about the character’s exploits

in comic books, was sent a script. He loved it but was concerned

that he could be typecast. His agents suggested he do it, so West

signed on the dotted line. Burt Ward was cast as Robin. West

decided he’d play the title character with his tongue firmly in his

cheek. His deadpan delivery was perfect.

At first, the producers weren’t thrilled with West's performance.

They wanted an edgier Batman but came around after viewing the

rushes. West still wasn’t sure what to expect. The show premiered

January 12, 1966. “Batman” took off like a rocket, an overnight

ratings smash and culture phenomenon. "Bat-mania" was

everywhere. A Batman movie soon followed with West and Ward

taking on an all-star cast of criminals led off by Frank Gorshin's

Riddler. West even recorded a song as his Batman alter-ego.

Hollywood veterans wanted to be part of the show. The lineup of

guest stars was impressive—including Vincent Price as Egghead,

Roddy McDowall as Bookworm, Julie Newmar as Catwoman,

Burgess Meredith as the iconic Penguin, George Sanders as icy

Mr. Freeze and Cesar Romero as The Joker. Rumor has it that

even Frank Sinatra wanted to play a villain on the show. Elizabeth

Taylor, Gregory Peck and Sinatra asked to be guests in scenes

when Batman and Robin scaled a building. West channeled Basil

Rathbone’s Sherlock Holmes in a comedic way when Batman

played detective. He was having a ball but still worried that the

role would damage his career.

By season two, the show was losing steam. West was frustrated.

The program was expensive, and West heard it was losing money.

He couldn’t convince the producers to accept his suggestions. He

considered quitting, tired of fighting for better scripts. But he still

loved playing "Bat." A new character, Batgirl, was added to try

and improve the ratings. It didn’t help. "Bat-mania" had morphed

into "Bat-fatigue." ABC canceled the show after 120 episodes.

A fourth season looked possible when NBC contacted the

producers, but the sets had already been dismantled. The cost to

rebuild them made the decision easy for NBC. No more Batman.

A few months after the show was axed, West played a soldier of

fortune in “The Girl Who Knew Too Much.” The film bombed

with critics and moviegoers. West’s worst fear was coming true.

He was being typecast because of Batman. He couldn’t escape it.

He’d be on the verge of landing a good part until someone would

mention the show. He was stuck, and he knew it.

George Reeves, who played Superman in the classic 1950’s

television show, faced the same problem. After Superman’s

cancelation in 1957, Reeves found it virtually impossible to get

hired for another role. Reeves had been working in Hollywood

for almost 20 years. His most notable role, though a small one,

was in “Gone with the Wind.” He’d worked with James Cagney,

Tyrone Power and Burt Lancaster, but none of that seemed to

matter. He was Superman. Reeves was forced to don the red cape

and make public appearances at fairs to make a living. He died

in 1959.

West faced a similar dilemma. He was still working, but the roles

were small and barely paid the bills. Things might have been

different if West had accepted a chance to play James Bond in

1969, but he was wary of the role because the character is British.

The role eventually went to Australian George Lazenby. A year

later, West was taking almost every acting gig thrown his way,

and like Reeves, started making public appearances dressed as

Batman. He played the character again in a couple of animated

programs. His lowest point was likely when, dressed as The

Caped Crusader, he was shot out of a canon.

Racked by self-doubt, West found solace in alcohol. Perhaps he

remembered his late father telling him Hollywood was a dirty

place. By 1980, he accepted a role in a terrible film called “The

Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood.” Needing a fresh start, West

moved his family to a ranch in Ketchum, Idaho, in 1985. The

house was surrounded by mountains with a stream nearby. West

loved it there.

When Hollywood decided to make a new Batman movie in 1989,

West was excited. He wanted another crack at the character. He’d

even written a script. Michael Keaton landed the role instead.

Disappointed, West realized that this was a “new” version of

the character. New wasn’t him. Christopher Nolen created a

Batman animated series a few years later. West played an outof-work

actor who had once played a superhero. He resented

being typecast. West likely recognized how closely the character

resembled his own life—but not completely. West was working

pretty steadily. His work ethic, inherited by example from his

father, never failed him. The younger crowd in Hollywood was

finally seeing that he was more than just a guy who had once run

around on TV in tights, a cowl and a cape.

More work came his way. He appeared in

numerous television shows, sometimes playing

himself. His old standby, his voice, made him

very employable. He did voice-over work for

cartoons: “Johnny Bravo,” “The Fairly Odd

Parents,” “Robot Chicken” and “The Simpsons.”

He even voiced author Ernest Hemingway.

And most importantly, he found peace with

the character who had, as he said, been a

two-edged sword. West had gained a new

generation of fans. Being seen as only Batman

had been tough, but overall, the role gave him

fame, money and recognition. He also loved

showing his versatility.

One of his biggest fans was writer and actor

Seth McFarland. They met while working on

an animated series. They clicked comically.

McFarland wrote a pilot for West that wasn’t

picked up, but when his series “Family Guy”

became a hit, McFarland created a role for

West. He would play a character called Adam

West—the mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island.

The part was offbeat, quirky and hilarious.

Many would describe West in the same

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

manner. In 2012, West, with his wife and four

children standing proudly alongside him,

was given a star on Hollywood Boulevard,

but as always, he didn’t take himself seriously,

commenting that, "Now people can walk all

over me."

His career

had spanned

60 years, with

appearances in

over 50 films

and TV shows.

35

Shortly before he died in 2017, at the age of

88, West returned to his childhood home in

Walla Walla to sign the door to his room. A

few months later, a new street sign, Honorary

Adam West Way, was unveiled near his old

house. Hollywood showed its respect for

West by shining the Bat signal from City

Hall. His career had spanned 60 years, with

appearances in over 50 films and TV shows.

Not bad for a boy who once upon a time sat

in a darkened theater and dreamed of being

in the movies.

THEN AND

NOW

NURSING IN BOUNDARY COUNTY

By April Bennett, MSN RN

Surgery Manager, Boundary Community Hospital

Nurses have been caring for the residents

of Boundary County in a hospital setting

since Bonners Ferry established their

first hospital in 1907. Since that time, our

world has been through two world wars, Vietnam,

Korea and Desert Storm, as well as worldwide

pandemics like the Influenza pandemic of 1918 and

the current COVID-19 pandemic. Over the years the

duties, education, training and roles of the nurses

have evolved. Nurses consistently demonstrate their

ability to adapt and change with the health-care

needs of the community in which they live and work.

Recognizing that good nursing care is essential to

a patient’s well-being and positive outcomes, our

nurses are boots on the ground, standing on the front

lines ready to care for the community that they serve.

When the first hospital was established, the building

had no modern facilities, creating duties for the

nurse that were far beyond patient care, including

carrying bedpans out of the hospital to be disposed

of in buildings built for that purpose. In later years

it would be the nurse’s duty to keep the fire stoked

to make sure that the steam-powered elevator in the

facility worked properly—much different from the

duties of the nurses today.

MRS. BERTHA JOHNSON. PHOTO COURTESY OF BOUNDARY COUNTY MUSEUM

The first matron of the hospital was Mrs. Bertha

Johnson, who received her training at Deaconess

Hospital in Spokane, Washington. As the matron

of the hospital she was the most senior nurse and

was responsible for all the nurses and coordinating

patient care, as well as making sure the entire facility

ran efficiently. Throughout the years, hospital

matrons have been replaced with superintendents,

chief nursing officers, nurse managers and charge

nurses.

As nursing duties and responsibilities have evolved,

so has the education that nurses receive. There was

no formal education for nurses until the mid-19th

look and feel your best

century. In 1873 the first three organized

professional schools for nursing were opened,

and by 1960 over 172 college-based nursing

programs had emerged. Many early nurses

lived in the hospital in nursing quarters and

received on-the-job training and hospital

diplomas. Boundary County had many local

ladies who received training at the hospital as

licensed practical nurses.

Today Boundary Community Hospital

employs nurses with various educations and

backgrounds in nursing. Many hold Associate

of Science degrees, Bachelor of Science

degrees, and some with Master of Science

degrees in nursing. They serve as staff nurses,

quality officers, primary care, managers and

specialty nurses. Some are studying to achieve

their nurse practitioner license so they can

serve their community outside the hospital as

well.

Rural nurses working at Boundary Community

Hospital need to be able to critically think and

have the skill to take care of patients of all ages

and be able to assist with all types of healthcare

needs. The patient population is diverse

with a variety of needs. You never know what

you are going to get, and some days you may

get it all—from a child with a chest cold to

a patient in critical condition that needs to

be stabilized and prepared for Life Flight to

another facility.

Nursing is a highly respected profession that

attracts those extraordinary individuals who

have the desire to care for others. The nurses

at Boundary Community Hospital are some

of these extraordinary individuals, furthering

their skills and education to meet the everevolving

and ever-changing needs of the

community they serve.

2020 FALL

BEAUTY TRENDS

Now’s the time to refresh your routine

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

A

lthough

it seems so far away at the height of summer, the fall season is

right around the corner. Autumn often brings with it a breath of crisp,

fresh air and a promise of new beginnings. The change of the season

holds ample opportunities to grow and evolve.

One of the easiest ways to embrace a new season and step into an opportunity for

change is by refreshing your look. This fall, new beauty trends offer the chance to

both play with boldness and speak volumes with simplicity.

From colorful makeup trends to subtle hair accessories, the fall of 2020 will

certainly bring its opportunities to refresh your routine when it comes to makeup,

hair and skin care.

Makeup Trends

According to Vogue, the makeup forecast for fall 2020 is largely bold, bright

and exuberant. This year’s runways saw glitter, sparkle and shine with attentiongrabbing

colors, as well as darker, moody nods to the era of grunge. Here are a few

of the most prominent upcoming trends:

Color pops - This year, as temperatures start to cool, it doesn’t have to mean cooling

off the intensity of your look; bright color is certainly on trend. Keep the heat up

with eye shadows in bright pink and orange, or a bold, red lip. Pick an area to focus

on, and embolden yourself to go for more: a flashier, fluorescent mascara or a colorblocked

eyelid are right on par with fall runway looks.

Shadow play - If you’re looking to draw attention up to your eyes, trendsetters are

all for bright shadows this season. From glamorous golden tones to bright orange or

blush, a statement shadow can be worn “like jewelry,” according to Harper’s Bazaar.

Goth and punk-inspired - Color isn’t everything this fall; those who lean more

toward a darker look are in luck. Black eyeliner is very much on-trend and can be

made even edgier with a healthy smudge. Even better news: This type of look (a

thick swipe of eyeliner with full, dark mascara) takes hardly any time and is perfect

for moments when you’re pressed for time. Take this look up a notch at night with

a darker, bolder winged liner applied with brushed liquid eyeliner, paired with a

nude or matte lip.

Hair Trends

Textured updos - This fall wants to see your texturized pony and those playful,

pinned-up curls. Start with texturizing powders and beach wave sprays that add a

healthy, easy bounce. Pin your waves back in a tousled, romantic updo or a youthful

scrunchie. The more texture and character, the better.

Small, subtle details - Tiny, barely-there braids or subtle accent accessories woven

into your updo will bring a subtle accent to your everyday look this fall. Play up your

ponytail by weaving in tiny pins or ribbons—even a darker ribbon that matches

your hair color will add dimension while keeping your overall look more neutral.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

This fall, new beauty trends offer the

chance to both play with boldness and

speak volumes with simplicity.

A “less is more” approach to accessorizing - Headbands and hair

accessories are coming back for the fall of 2020. Trending styles

will be minimal, with accessories aimed at accentuating, not

overshadowing, the look. Trending headbands will be thinner,

wiry, and laced with small jewels or pearls. Don’t overthink it—a

small, simple hair clip or jeweled bobby pin is all you need to pull

this trend off.

Hair color - With the way this year has gone, many are still awaiting

their chance to sit in the hair colorist’s chair. When you finally

get that long-anticipated appointment, keep in mind fall’s most

predominant hair color trend: caramel highlights. Keeping your

roots darker while bringing softer caramel tones to the lower

lengths will prepare you to warmly welcome fall with just the right

amount of contrast.

Skin-Care Trends

Skin care is ever evolving, with many trends crossing over from

the realms of dietary wellness and nutritional science. A few new

ways to care for our body’s largest organ will surely interest both the

health-conscious and the environmentally aware consumers.

Going plant-based - We often hear about the power of plants in

terms of what we put in our body, but what about what goes on

our skin? As plant-based beauty has grown in popularity, a few

trends to watch for this fall include: vegan and cruelty-free claims,

“nature-identical” ingredients that, like they sound, have their

original form in nature as a plant or mineral, and Halal beauty,

indicating products that are cruelty-free, alcohol-free and free of

animal products.

Taking bacteria beyond the microbiome - The power of probiotics

to promote a balanced gut isn’t a new, trendy conversation; but

expect to see that conversation shift to include more beauty and

skin products this fall. Everything from pre- and probiotic-packed

deodorants that feed the right odor-fighting bacteria, to bacteriabased

scalp serums, will be headed our way this fall.

Going environmentally conscious - Trendsetters are predicting a

step up from recycling this fall with upcycling, which encourages

the repurposing of items to extend the lifespan of their usability

and avoid adding more waste to overflowing landfills. Brands are

paying more attention to what their products’ containers are made

from to allow buyers to continue using the containers in creative

ways long after the product is gone, with possibilities ranging from

on-the-go storage to a home for succulents.

You can recreate your look and skin-care routine at any time,

whether it’s by starting small with a subtle accessory, or going bold

with a bright new eye shadow.

There may be no better time to take a small risk and approach

something new than in the fall, when everything seems to be primed

for change. This fall, don’t be afraid to be bold, remembering that

beauty trends aren’t meant to stay forever—that’s what makes them

fun.

NATURAL

PNW beauty companies that

keep it natural, safe and clean

by ABIGAIL THORPE

It seems like every time you open your email

or turn a corner there’s another new ad for

some wonder product that will make you

more beautiful, younger, healthier or more

photo-ready. “Get that natural glow,” “ramp up the

dramatic look,” “reduce wrinkles,” “use five different

products,” “try this one-product miracle worker.”

Every woman—and at times man—has been

through the expensive, tiresome journey of trying

to find her perfect beauty go-tos, and she probably

has the drawer of trial and reject items to prove it.

When it comes to beauty, however, it's just as

important to pay attention to what we put on our

skin as what we put in our body. The ingredient list

of most beauty products is almost too long to read

and often includes harmful products like mineral

oil, parabens and siloxanes that can irritate your

skin, lead to hormonal imbalances or pollute the

environment.

Here are some natural beauty companies from our

own Northwest home that are working to change

the beauty industry, one product at a time.

Ohmygaia - This Coeur d’Alene-based company

produces deodorant, fragrance oils and beard

oils that are free of aluminum and other harsh

chemicals—and that actually work! Their

deodorants inhibit the growth of odor-causing

bacteria to keep the stink at bay, and all products

are made using only organic, vegan, aluminum-free

and paraben-free ingredients. The cherry on top?

Each of their scents is absolutely amazing. Finally, a

natural deodorant that lasts the entire day.

Herbivore Botanicals - Founded in a Seattle

kitchen in 2011, Herbivore Botanicals lives up to

its name. They ethically source raw, fine ingredients

from around the world to formulate treatments

that combine essential vitamins, minerals and

botanicals to restore skin to its optimum health and

vitality. They don’t use fillers of any kind, using only

ingredients that are safe and non-toxic—every ingredient is there for a

purpose. Choose from a variety of face and body masks, scrubs, oils and

elixirs.

Hippie Chic Cosmetics - This skin-care and beauty line started out of Jess

Bontrager’s home in Sandpoint, Idaho, with the goal of making women

feel beautiful. It offers a variety of natural skin-care products including

cleansers, moisturizers and toners, but also produces an organic line of

makeup products as well that are good for your body—and look great

on. They recently introduced a Beach Bum shampoo and conditioner set,

and the versatile company also makes body sunscreen, natural deodorant

and even doggy deodorant!

Mad Hippie - Mad Hippie was born out of a couple’s desire for simple,

naturally based, effective products with clean ingredients that could

serve their fellow adventurers, explorers and dreamers. They are

champions of caring for the environment and donate $1 of every web

sale to conservation efforts—the mark of a company that believes beauty,

health and the environment are stronger when they work together to

achieve results. In addition to skin care, the Portland-based company

offers naturally based makeup products as well, like their cheek and lip

tint, concealer and mascara, and you can find them at nationally based

stores like Whole Foods and Ulta.

French Girl - A collective of passionate individuals working together

to create natural, sustainable skin-care products that feel good, this

female-owned company operates its studio out of Tukwila, Washington,

utilizing plant-based, old-world formulas to create their totally newworld

products that will make you—and the planet—look and feel good.

They offer everything from bath and body to face skin care, hair products

and perfumes. French Girl works with Puget Soundkeeper to fight for the

health and prosperity of their local waterways, actively participating in

events and giving a portion of sales to the organization.

Teadora - Co-founder Val grew up in Brazil, where she learned early

on to value the importance of natural remedies and the power of the

Amazon rainforest. Now living in Portland, she and her husband started

Teadora as a way to bring the power of the Amazon to their hometown.

Each product is natural and organic, made from unique and sustainable

ingredients sourced from the rainforest. The couple is passionate about

using their business for good—of both the people and the environment.

They are on a mission through Teadora to replant one million trees and

preserve 75 thousand acres in the Amazon rainforest in an effort to

preserve the Amazon and do their part to help halt climate change.

Veque - This Seattle-based nail care company was started by the daughter

of Vietnamese immigrants. The family of nail artists that make the Veque

brand has over 100 combined years of expertise, both as teachers and

students. Their colorful line of clean vegan and cruelty-free nail polishes

are formulated to mimic the lasting effects of gel nail polish. “Veque is a

celebration of our life's work and the heritage that came to be. It is our

humble privilege to be the keepers of this artisan legacy,” they write.

Island Thyme - This botanically based skin and body-care company

has been making small-batch products from its farm and apothecary

studio in the San Juan Islands of Washington since 1996. Founders Eliza

and Chris Morris are passionate about aromatherapy and the healing

properties of plants, and mix each formula in the studio they built by

hand overlooking the farm. They offer everything from body skin care to

natural deodorant, face care and hand sanitizer.

If you're on the hunt for a new serum, moisturizer or even healthy makeup

or deodorant, make these companies your first stop. Your skin (and

body) will thank you, and you'll help make the planet a better place along

the way. Whatever your beauty routine may be, there's always room to go

back to the all-natural, clean basic ingredients that make you look and

feel your best.

BEAUTY MUST-HAVES

for on the go

Everything you need to stay fresh and vibrant throughout the day

by ABIGAIL THORPE

1 2

TINTED MOISTURIZER OR SUNSCREEN

COLOR STICK/HIGHLIGHTER STICK

A good moisturizer is key, and being able to reapply later in the day as

your skin needs is essential. Add in a light tint, and you don’t need to

worry about foundation for the day—it does double the work. If you

want even fewer steps and a true all-in-one skin saver, find a tinted

sunscreen that also moisturizes. Choose one that is light and wears

well throughout the day—some sunscreens can make your skin extra

oily, which can make you feel more like you’re melting than glowing

at the end of the day.

3

HYDRATING TINTED LIP BALM OR GLOSS

We all love a good lipstick, but they do a number on lip hydration,

and even the longest wearing one can start to fade, smudge and drift

from its original perfect outline by the end of the day. Enter the tinted

lip balm or hydrating gloss. Your lips will stay healthy and hydrated,

and you’ll still get that touch of color and glam with half the work.

Plus you won’t have to worry about carrying lip liners, primers, color

and gloss with you when you go out.

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

Nothing gets the job done like a blush stick or highlighter stick.

These powerful beauty must haves can transform your look in

minutes and add a healthy glow at the end of a long day. The best

part is you don’t need any brushes or makeup sponges. And they’re

not just for your cheeks. Brush a little blush over your eyelids for a

barely there shimmer, or use a highlighter on the bridge of your nose

to add a dewy glow.

4

CLEANSING WIPES/BLOTTERS

These are the true heavy hitters of a long day. Make sure to pack

some cleansing wipes that can double as a blotter for those times

you need a face refresh but don’t have the time to go home. Choose

wipes that are small and compact, and that can remove makeup

when you’re in a pinch. Some skin types are sensitive to certain

products that can be used in wipes, so make sure to find one that

works well with your skin type and won’t add to your skin irritation

throughout the day.

LONG BEACH PENINSULA

At 28-miles long, it is perfect for social distancing

Story & Photos By Marguerite Cleveland

With the COVID-19 pandemic dragging on much longer than anyone expected, it can be challenging to find a safe place

for a getaway. The Long Beach Peninsula in Washington state, with its many wide-open spaces, is perfect for a less risky

vacation. The 28-mile-long beach is an ideal destination for social distancing. You can drive on the beach and remain

in your car or just stroll for miles. Shops and restaurants are open and following state rules regarding safe distancing

and wearing masks. The main drag has lines painted 6-feet apart on the sidewalk to aid keeping the recommended distance. During these

chaotic times you may not want to leave your pooch behind. The Long Beach Peninsula is super dog friendly, so bring him along.

Safe Distancing Activities

Go fly a kite. This is a perfect activity for social distancing. Head out to the beach for miles of accessible space to fly your kite. The wind is

always kicking, making it easy for your kite to find its way up into the sky. The World Kite Museum is worth a stop—if it is open. The gift

shop has a great selection of kites for sale in all shapes and sizes. Make sure to check out the Bald Eagle flag. It is very impressive.

Pack a picnic and head to either end of the peninsula to explore a Washington state park. Cape Disappointment State Park is at the southern

end and has a variety of activities as well as two lighthouses to hike to. It is also part of the Lewis and Clark National and State Historical

Parks and highlights the westernmost terminus for the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Make sure to check out Beards Hollow at both the

scenic overlook and down below on the trail. The area was once a cove and is now marshy land. At the northern tip of the peninsula is the

Leadbetter Point State Park, which has 7 miles of hiking trails. The park has beach frontage on both the Pacific Ocean and Willapa Bay. This

park is not well known, so chances are you will find a place all to yourself.

The paved 8.5-mile Discovery Trail is well maintained and perfect for bike riding or pushing a stroller. It starts in Downtown Ilwaco and

ends on Long Beach at an 18-foot bronze tree. There are displays and sculptures along the way, as well as great beach views. It is relatively

flat except for the portion going through Cape Disappointment State Park, which is hilly. The half-mile Long Beach Boardwalk is not what

THERE ARE SIX LITTLE TOWNS THAT

COMPRISE THE PENINSULA, EACH

WITH ITS OWN CHARM.

you would expect for a beach boardwalk. There are no food stands or

rides but instead you have panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and a

bird’s-eye view above the sand dunes.

There are six little towns that comprise the peninsula, each with its own

charm. Visit Ilwaco, Long Beach, Nahcotta, Ocean Park and Seaview

to enjoy their shops and restaurants. Oysterville is an 80-acre National

Historic District and is a lovely place for a stroll. Purchase fresh oysters

and other local products at Oysterville Sea Farms. Profits from the

Willabay brand help to preserve Oysterville’s last oyster buildings. You

won’t find fresher Willabay oysters and clams; these are harvested the

same day.

Where To Stay

Boardwalk Cottages is Adrift Hospitality’s newest property. The 13 cute

cottages each have their own unique charm and size. The location in

Downtown Long Beach is perfect for a quick walk in the morning to

grab coffee and pastries at the Cottage Bakery & Delicatessen. You will

be blown away by the choices. There are lots of cute shops nearby as well.

You also have access to the amenities at the Adrift Hotel and Spa, which

include a heated pool, barrel sauna, and beach cruisers to rent. Also

located at the hotel is the Adrift Distillery, a fun place to tour and imbibe.

Pet-friendly rooms are available.

In the fishing village of Ilwaco, At The Helm is its newest lodging. Just

steps away from the marina, this lovely bank building has been lovingly

repurposed into an eco-friendly boutique hotel and restaurant by owner

Marcene Miller. You can see the love, care and hands-on work she put

into each choice during the renovation. Rooms are named after the

owners’ fishing vessels they had throughout the years. Staying here allows

you to bask in luxury not normally found in this area, and all the extra

amenities make you feel special. It begins with a complimentary glass of

beer or wine at check-in, breakfast delivered to your room, and a basket

of snacks to enjoy during your stay. So worth the splurge. Take time to

look at the interior décor, as there are so many interesting touches and

artwork to observe. Note: This hotel does not have pet-friendly rooms,

but they are welcome in the outdoor seating area of the restaurant.

What To Eat

A surprisingly good place to eat is at

the Peninsula Golf Course at the Cove

Restaurant. It is also one of the most petfriendly

places I have ever eaten at. Popular

with the locals, the Cove menu has many

country-club favorites such as a Prime Rib

dinner available Thursday through Saturday

and is heavy on the local seafood with great

burgers, sandwiches and salads as well.

Where it really shines is the nightly specials,

where the chef can flex his cooking chops.

A recent special was Halibut, Scallops and

Prawns served over rice with a curry sauce.

Very flavorful with just a hint of spice. The

cooking staff has competed and won local

food competitions. Make sure to try the

award-winning Tiramisu Cheesecake with a

caramel drizzle. Yummy.

The Peninsula Golf Course is one of five in Washington state that allows

dogs on the course. At the Cove Restaurant your pet is welcome at the

outdoor seating. They even offer a Patio Pup Menu with Haida’s Turkey

Bites, named after a pooch who frequented the patio. A big water bowl

is offered for the pups as well. The menu features a variety of fish, turkey

and beef that is sure to please even the most finicky dog.

The Waterline Pub in At the Helm has incredible food. You can choose to

dine indoors, which is adorned with reclaimed wood, or outside on the

patio overlooking the marina. The menu is heavy on the local seafood,

which comes right off the fishing boats in the marina. Everything is

delicious, but you must try the Seafood Nosh Board—not your typical

charcuterie. This is loaded with fresh crabmeat, prawns, oysters, grilled

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com

Brie cheese, olives, house-made sauces and served with grilled bread. The

crab is served plain, and its sweet freshness with a squeeze of lemon is

delicious. With good, quality ingredients you don’t have to do much to

highlight it. The chef does a variety of chowders, stews and specials each

day. Well worth a stop—and pets are welcome on the patio.

Planning a trip during the pandemic can be done. Just take a few extra

steps to ensure your safety and that of the destination you are going

to. Call ahead to lodging, and ask about restrictions. Wear a mask and

practice social distancing. Make reservations to any restaurant that you

wish to eat in, as seating is limited. Enjoy more outside activities and get

exploring.

Garlic Festival returns to the Farmers’ Market

By Jillian Chandler

August

22

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE ABUNDANCE OF FRESH PRODUCE

ONE CAN FIND DURING THESE WARMER SUMMER MONTHS,

and right here in Bonners Ferry, the bounty is plentiful, as local

farmers and producers devote their time tending to their gardens

and sharing the fruits of their labor with those in the community.

Throughout the market season, the Bonners Ferry Farmers’

Market holds various events to celebrate. Mark your calendar for

Saturday, August 22, for this year’s Garlic Festival.

“There will be a number of garlic vendors, including decorative

garlic braids, that make excellent gifts,” says Kate Painter, who is

a member of the board of directors for the market.

Boundary County has a number of garlic producers, and Marsha

Semar, who is working hard to promote this year’s Garlic Festival,

is sure to once again make it a festive event!

“Marsha herself produces a large amount of organic garlic, and

she also creates artistic arrangements with dried flowers woven

into her garlic braids,” says Kate.

The Garlic Festival will be flourishing with plenty of garlic, as well

as all delicious in-season goods. Live music will accompany the

event, as the marimba band Coeurimba, out of Coeur d'Alene,

will be performing for market-goers from 9:30 to 11am.

The Bonners Ferry Farmers' Market invites the community

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

Lot. Upcoming events include the Bonners Ferry Farmers'

Market's Harvest Party on September 19, Customer

Appreciation and Last Day October 3, and the Holiday Market

on November 21 (indoors). For additional information, visit

BonnersFerryFarmersMarket.org.
