IT MIGHT BE HERE

This might be where you watch your children grow up. It might

be where your family gathers for holiday dinners. Or it might be

where you bake Grandma’s cookies. It might be where you gather

for movie and game nights. Or it might be where you fall in love.

One thing is for certain, it will be where life happens.

PROVIDING

SOLAR

SERVICES

Going solar has a wide range of

benefits. Whether your focus is

economic, environmental or

personal, solar is a clean

renewable process that uses

the most natural resource – the

sun! – while keeping money in

your pocket.

THE FINAL DAYS OF SUMMER

T

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.

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

Coeur d’Alene 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 Coeur

d’Alene is the perfect place to create them.

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

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 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

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.

Interior decor should be simple,

tasteful and area specific.

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. Pullout

sofas are also recommended, but again, not always necessary. If you’d

like to focus on quality instead of quantity, that is certainly acceptable.

CDALivingLocal.com

22

As well, I’ve worked on STRs where instead of a huge room of beds we’ve

placed good-quality sleeping bags on the 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 Coeur d’Alene 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 two-way 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?

MINERAL RIDGE TRAIL

Great hiking in your own backyard

Story and Photo By Colin Anderson

Let’s connect and help you

find your perfect home!

You don’t have to go far to enjoy great

hiking around Coeur d’Alene. Tubbs

Hill is the most popular spot for a

short trek around the lakeshore, and

just 15 minutes from downtown there’s another

great trail that offers spectacular views of our

area.

elevation. After the first mile the switchbacks

lengthen out and the slope is more gradual.

The trail is hard packed, wide, and has very few

rocks and boulders to navigate around. About

a mile in, there is an opportunity to check out

an abandoned mining cave. It’s only 400 feet off

the main trail and is a hit with the kiddos.

The Mineral Ridge Trail is

located across from Beauty

Bay at the far eastern end

of Lake Coeur d’Alene.

To get there, hop on I-90

until you reach Wolf

Lodge Exit 22. Turn right

toward Harrison, and

in about 2.5 miles you’ll

see a parking and picnic

area. This 3.3-mile loop is

managed by the Bureau of

Land Management and is

a great hike for families, as

the switchbacks are fairly

gentle. If you’re looking

for exercise you can hike

the trail in about an hour,

but if you’re wandering

and snapping photos plan

on a two-hour trip.

Before you begin, grab a

pamphlet at the trailhead. Along the way you

will find 22 corresponding posts to the guide

that explain local trees, vegetation, and offer

interesting tidbits about the mining history in

the area.

The trail begins with several short switchbacks

as you eventually gain about 650 feet in

About a mile and a half

in you’ll reach the top

and be greeted by the

Caribou Cabin. There is

a picnic table where you

can take a break and take

in the great views of the

lake and surrounding

mountains. As you

continue along the ridge,

you’ll soon come to the

best photo opportunity

on the trail. From

Silvertip Viewpoint,

the lake opens up, and

on a clear day you can

see for miles. It’s quite

a sight considering

you’re only 15 minutes

from Downtown Coeur

d’Alene. The hike down

might be the most

challenging part as it

is quite steep, and the switchbacks are quick.

Hikers have blazed their own trails down, but

remember to stay on the main trail, as cutting

can lead to erosion problems.

AS YOU

CONTINUE

ALONG THE

RIDGE, YOU’LL

SOON COME

TO THE

BEST PHOTO

OPPORTUNITY

ON THE TRAIL.

If you’re at all active, you can conquer this short

trail. When you’re finished, you’ll be glad you

did.

How to Help Your Loved Ones (and Assets) Avoid Probate

The importance of funding your trust

TODAY!

Today, many people are using

revocable living trusts instead of a

will as the foundation of their estate

plan. When properly prepared,

living trusts avoid the public, costly and timeconsuming

court processes of conservatorship

and probate. Still, many trust owners make a

big mistake that sends their accounts, property

and loved ones right into the court system:

They fail to fund their trust.

What does it mean to fund your trust?

Funding a trust is the process of transferring

accounts and property from your name into

your trust. With assets like life insurance

policies and retirement accounts, it can also

mean changing beneficiary designations to

name your trust as a beneficiary.

Funding is accomplished in several different

ways:

• Changing the title of the asset from your

individual name (or names if married) to the

name of your trust—for example, from John

Smith to John Smith, Trustee of the John Smith

Living Trust dated August 1, 2020.

• Assigning interests in assets without titles

(such as artwork, jewelry, collectibles or

antiques) to your trust.

• Changing the primary or contingent

beneficiary of the account or property to your

trust.

What happens to assets left out of your trust?

For many people, avoiding court proceedings is

a main reason for setting up a revocable living

trust. Unfortunately, many mistakenly believe

that once they sign the trust agreement, they’re

done. In reality, if they fail to take the next step

of funding the trust, their property and loved

ones will likely end up in court after all.

What are the benefits of funding your trust?

Funding your trust makes it possible to obtain

the best results from your trust-based estate

plan:

• Your trustee, instead of a conservatorship

or guardianship judge, will take control of

your trust assets on your behalf if you become

mentally incompetent, ensuring that you are

cared for in the manner you expect.

• Your trustee, instead of a probate court, will

take control of your trust assets after your

death, managing and distributing the accounts

and property to your chosen beneficiaries

without court involvement.

• As your wishes and circumstances change, a

trust will be easier to update than if you had

a piecemeal plan of joint ownership accounts,

payable-on-death accounts or individual

beneficiary designations.

• Your final wishes will remain a private family

matter instead of being publicized in the local

court records.

The bottom line on trust funding …

In the end, an unfunded trust probably isn’t

worth the paper it’s written on. Surprisingly,

even many attorneys fail to ensure that their

clients’ trusts are properly funded. (We’ve even

heard of clients being told not to worry about

funding their trusts!)

Working with a trusted estate planning firm

like Crandall Law Group will ensure that

you not only have a well-designed trust but

that the trust is properly funded and will

actually work as intended. Contact us to

schedule a complimentary virtual or in-person

consultation.

many buildings. The Fair Board, alongside the Kootenai/

Shoshone 4-H program, Panhandle Health and others,

found a format in which the annual 4-H competition can still be held.

“The most traditional piece of almost any fair is the 4-H,” said Kootenai

County Fairgrounds General Manager Alexcia Jordan. “It will be

different this year, but I think the kids will really enjoy it.”

By not having the throngs of visitors, vendors and workers, there will

be a lot more real estate available to 4-H. Different judging areas will be

spread out throughout the many fair buildings in order to keep groups

small. While the livestock auction portion is undoubtedly the most

well-known, what is often overlooked is the scope and wide range of

projects kids participate in under 4-H. “4-H is a youth development

program that gives kids life skills, and we are so much more than cows

and cookies. We have projects in leadership, citizenship, robotics,

gardening, art and just about any topic you can imagine,” said Program

Coordinator Teresa Balderrama.

Whatever the project might be, participants put in hours upon hours

of work leading up to the fair. Many began their project or raising

their animal last fall. “They record expenses, income, activities, and

even write an essay about the project experience. The 4-H kids also are

required to give a demonstration to their peers about something that

relates to the project,” said Teresa.

For the first time, the popular livestock auction will be held online at

LiveAuctions.tv. You can also contact Alexcia at the fairgrounds to

register as a livestock buyer. In previous years, fair daily admissions

covered the bulk of the costs of putting on the show. With no ticket sale

revenue this year, the fairgrounds is looking for additional sponsors for

this year’s 4-H program.

The show runs August 25 through August 29. A schedule of events is up

at NISFair.fun. If health conditions and regulations improve, there is a

chance for some in-person attendance at the event. Visit the fair website

or social media channels for the latest information.

A Natural

Solution

Quality products and a compassionate team

will guide you on your journey to health

“WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT ALL

ASPECTS OF PLANT MEDICINE

AND LOVE NOTHING MORE

THAN TO EMPOWER PEOPLE TO

TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR

OWN HEALTH.”

Authentic Botanicals was introduced to North Idaho in January of

2018 by Blair Walton and Kelly Costello. With a mission to help

people help themselves with plant-based medicine, their highquality,

hand-crafted botanical CBD formulations are intended to do just

that!

Each product is crafted by the company, where they carefully formulate and

select all of the ingredients that go into each product they sell. “One of the

most important things to consider when selecting a hemp-derived CBD

product is quality,” affirms Kelly.

Though not organically certified as a business, all of their ingredients are

USDA-certified organic.

“This is important to us, as we produce all of our products with our own

families in mind, which means we never use harmful parabens, preservatives,

dyes or synthetic flavorings and fragrances,” Kelly says. Their CBD is lab

certified, and they are always willing to provide lab results on the request

of their clients.

Life and loss is what led Kelly on this path to natural healing solutions.

After losing her daughter in 2014, Kelly’s autoimmune disease flared out

of control, landing her in the hospital. Within months of intervention by

physicians and pharmaceuticals, she was diagnosed with drug-induced

Lupus. “This is when I made the decision to return to what I knew best—

nutrition and herbs,” she recalls.

CDALivingLocal.com

Kelly began by making her own topicals and oil blends, and shifted to an

all-organic diet and plant-based health regimen. Within three months,

and for the first time in 40 years, she was off of her medication. In the

meantime, Blair and her husband Brett were busy building their legal

cannabis business in Liberty Lake, Washington, but wanted to expand

into the CBD market. After meeting through a mutual friend, Blair and

Kelly immediately put their ideas to work and, as they say, the rest is

history!

“We are passionate about all aspects of plant medicine and love nothing

more than to empower people to take control of their own health,” Kelly

says. “When we meet with clients, we take the time to listen to their

challenges and provide solutions—not just by promoting our products to

them but by going the extra mile to offer potential solutions that we have

had success with in our own health journeys.”

Though Idaho is still in the process of legislating hemp and THC remains

prohibited in the state, Authentic Botanicals has formulated all of their

products with both isolate (zero THC) and full spectrum. “All of this

can be confusing, which is why we offer free consultations, so that

people can decide what is best to serve their particular needs,” affirms

Blair. Isolate products are available on-site at their Hayden, Idaho,

location, but all formulas are available in full spectrum on their website,

AuthenticBotanicals.com.

Authentic Botanicals is proud to be one of the few companies that has

incorporated cannabigerol (CBG) into their product lines. CBG, which

is currently being studied for a variety of therapeutic applications as a

neuroprotective agent, is not found on the market as easily as cannabidiol

(CBD) due to its high cost. “Our CBG oil blend is one of our best sellers,

and many of our clients use it for a variety of reasons,” affirms Blair.

Blair and Kelly are grateful for the opportunity they’ve been given to help

guide others in their wellness journey. Along with their business partners,

they feel it is a privilege to be able to help others come to the realization

that they can largely control and positively impact their health by what

they consume and put on their bodies. “Many of our clients come to us

as a ‘last resort’ on their health journey,” states Kelly. “They have seen

specialist after specialist to no avail and are still looking for answers.”

And at Authentic Botanicals, they hope to help you find the solution.

Since opening their doors, and their hearts, the dedicated and

compassionate team has helped many clients who are suffering with

autoimmune disease, cancer and other serious ailments. “Nothing

makes us happier than hearing they are seeing good results by using our

products,” smiles Kelly.

For those seeking healing through natural solutions, Blair and Kelly

invite you to call today to schedule your free consultation.

Centennial Trail Foundation

Friends of the Trail

THE NORTH IDAHO CENTENNIAL TRAIL FOUNDATION CONTINUES TO PROVIDE

OPPORTUNITIES TO STAY CONNECTED AND CELEBRATE THE OUTDOORS IN 2020

IT’S NO SECRET THAT COEUR D’ALENE’S COMMUNITY

MEMBERS CELEBRATE THE OUTDOORS.

In a beautiful town surrounded by every possible opportunity to be

active outside, there are those who take that passion to the next level and

find ways to ensure the favorite local destinations for active community

members are well taken care of.

That’s where the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation (NICTF)

comes in.

The North Idaho Centennial Trail is 23 miles long, extending from the

Idaho and Washington state line over to Higgins Point, located a few

miles east of Coeur d’Alene, at the end of Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive.

Loved and enjoyed by runners, walkers, bikers and families on a daily

basis, the paved trail is well-known and well used throughout the year.

A cooperative effort shared by the cities of Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls,

Kootenai County, the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, and

the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation, the trail is shared and

loved by many.

The NICTF was founded in dedication to the maintenance and capital

improvement of the trail. It supports the continuous development of new

trails and non-motorized trail connectivity throughout North Idaho.

A nonprofit organization founded solely through private contributions,

the NICTF values and recognizes its members. “Every membership

makes an impact,” the foundation’s website states, recognizing that the

amount of community members who use and enjoy the Centennial Trail

every year is in the hundreds of thousands.

Community members can join the NICTF as an individual “Friend of the

Trail” or as a business with levels including small business, corporate,

and the “Supporters”—the highest level of membership recognition

every year.

Each year, the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation holds three

main fundraising events: the Coeur d’Alene Marathon, Ales for the Trail

and Coeur d’Fondo.

This year, as event planning has become increasingly unpredictable, the

Ales for the Trail event has needed to change its course for 2020. In the

spirit of community safety and support to local businesses, the event has

been changed to Brew Hop in a Bag.

From every $30 purchase of the Ales for the Trail Brew Hop in a Bag, all

proceeds support the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation and its

mission of keeping the trail clean, safe and well-maintained. Each bag

contains goodies from the NICTF, local breweries and more, allowing

participants to enjoy the flavors of the area.

Bags are on sale now through the foundation’s Facebook page and

website, and will be available for pickup from the Coeur d’Alene Chamber

of Commerce during business hours beginning August 1. The bags will

e available through the month of August, with

a virtual live auction to follow on September 2.

As of press time, the foundation’s remaining

major annual fundraisers for the year, the

Coeur d’Alene Marathon and Coeur d’Fondo,

as well as their upcoming 30th Anniversary

Party, are scheduled to occur.

The Coeur d’Alene Marathon is scheduled

for the morning August 23 in McEuen Park.

According to Negative Split, participant safety

is the event organizers’ first priority, and they

will be implementing several new measures

to enhance safety for both participants and

spectators.

New measures will include a self-selected

start time window (i.e. 7 to 7:30am), signage

displayed to encourage physical distancing, and

the ability for spectators to watch their finisher

live online, with finishing photos and videos

available for download.

To keep up with regular updates to the status

of the Coeur d’Alene Marathon and safety

measures taken during this time, visit NSplit.

com and follow the Coeur d’Alene Marathon

on Facebook.

On September 19, the Coeur d’Fondo, a bike

ride around the perimeter of Lake Coeur

d’Alene, promises breathtaking views of

lakeside communities and forest scenery.

Riders will enjoy scenes along Highway 97 and

finish their ride in Downtown Coeur d’Alene to

celebrate Oktoberfest.

The year’s events will conclude with the

foundation’s 30th Anniversary Party, set for

October 1 in the Innovation Den.

Volunteers and sponsors are always

welcomed for the North Idaho Centennial

Trail Foundation’s major events, or one of

their smaller, third-party fundraising events

throughout the year. The foundation promises

a fun-filled event showcasing great craft

breweries, wineries and ciders along with live

music and local food vendors. Truly an event

for the entire community, all proceeds from the

party will support the NICTF in its continued

maintenance of the Centennial Trail. Mark

your calendars for the celebration on October

1 at 6pm.

The foundation provides several additional

ways to continue to show your support. The

Sponsor-A-Mile Program is a great way to

show your support. Sponsors are recognized

through signage placed on the trail, along

with social media posts, website recognition,

a support sticker and a press release. You can

join the waitlist for the three-year minimum

commitment to Sponsor-A-Mile, found on the

foundation’s website.

CDALivingLocal.com

Ongoing projects for the NICTF are currently

accepting donations, a great way to contribute

to the trail’s continued improvement and safety.

Current projects include bridge lighting at the

North Idaho Centennial Trail Bridge, near the

Idaho/Washington state line.

As the bridge currently is without a lighting

system, vandalism and costly repairs have been

a repeat issue. The North Idaho Centennial

Trail Foundation aims to help Kootenai County

by raising enough funds to provide a lighting

system for the bridge.

Signage and maintenance for the trail are a

continued focus for the foundation. They aim

to continue to keep the trail safe, clean and

well-marked for all who enjoy it.

Visit the foundation’s website, NICTF.org, to

learn more about the foundation’s members,

goals and initiatives. There, you can become a

member or sponsor, and plan your next visit to

the trail with their interactive map.

Continue to celebrate adventure this summer

in the last few weeks of the season. The North

Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation events

provide the perfect combination of outdoor

activity, community celebration and the ability

to make a difference in the environment we

cherish.

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

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, 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

CDALivingLocal.com

36


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.

CDALivingLocal.com

37


“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.”

IDAHO’S OLDEST

BUILDING

Living history a short drive away

BY COLIN ANDERSON | PHOTOS COURTESY OF IDAHO PARKS AND RECREATION

You might have passed by it countless times on your way to Kellogg,

Lookout Pass or Western Montana. A large white building with

a cross atop it that stands just off Interstate 90 along a section of

the Coeur d’Alene River. The Mission of the Sacred Heart is in

fact the oldest standing building in the entire state, one of many fascinating

tidbits you’ll learn during a visit to this truly unique site.

Old Mission State Park is located about 30 minutes from Downtown

Coeur d’Alene east on I-90. Entrance fee is just $5, and you can explore

multiple buildings and the surrounding grounds once you’ve parked. The

most striking building is the Cataldo Mission, which was constructed by

Catholic missionaries and members of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe between

1850 and 1853. The church is listed on the National Register of Historic

Places and is open for guests to explore. You can tour the inside of the

building and learn about the early relationships between the missionaries

and regional native people. You can also explore the Parish House and

historic cemetery.

The Visitors’ Center is also well worth a stop. There is a gift shop with various

items, and it also houses an exhibition entitled “Sacred Encounters: Father

De Smet & the Indians of the Rocky Mountain West.” The 5,000-squarefoot

exhibit provides perspective from both the Jesuit missionaries as well

as the Coeur d’Alene and Salish tribes. Traditional clothing from both

cultures, photographs, religious artifacts and historical lessons present the

profound effects each culture had upon one another. Some of the artifacts

displayed have come from the Smithsonian and the Museum of Natural

History.

Summer hours are 9am to 5pm and run through October 13. In winter,

hours are reduced to 10am to 3pm. The grounds can also be rented out for

weddings and receptions. Its location along the Trail of the Coeur d’Alene

bike path also makes it a nice stopping point for those tackling the trail.

Park staff is available for tours and to answer the many questions that are

sure to come up once you step inside this most unique place.

Addition information can be found online at ParksAndRecreation.idaho.gov/

ONE MILLION TOWARD

Making a Difference

WINDERMERE/CDA REALTY FOUNDATION PASSES $1

MILLION MARK IN GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

BY ABIGAIL THORPE

PHOTOS COURTESY OF WINDERMERE COEUR D’ALENE REALTY

Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty goes beyond helping people

find their dream home—the team of 150 is actively involved

in making the community a better place by supporting

nonprofit organizations who help homeless and needy families in their

communities.

For 27 years, Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty has been volunteering

hours and funds to support children and families in the area who are

in need. From food banks to homeless shelters, the Red Cross, women’s

centers and much more, team members of Windermere have committed

to helping—whatever that looks like.

“Since that time we have given over $1 million to local organizations that

support the homeless and low income right here in our backyard,” says

Foundation Co-Chair Dick Jurvelin.

This year, the team reached a milestone of giving back over $1 million

in funds to the Coeur d’Alene community. To be exact, $1,080,224.10

to date has been given to 59 different agencies in the area, including

Children’s Village, CASA, United Way, St. Vincent de Paul Transitional

Center, Safe Passage and so many more.

The Windermere Foundation was founded in 1989 as a 501c3 nonprofit

organization created for the purpose of raising and distributing funds to

support programs and organizations that provide shelter, food, children’s

programs, emergency assistance and other services to those in need.

The program started as a grassroots foundation in Washington state 31

years ago but has since grown to include offices and organizations in 10

states, and has given over $41 million to nonprofits and programs to help

children and families in need.

Every time an agent sells a home, a portion of the commission goes into

the Windermere Foundation Fund, which is further expanded through

voluntary employee and community contributions.

FOR 27 YEARS, WINDERMERE

COEUR D’ALENE REALTY HAS BEEN

VOLUNTEERING HOURS AND FUNDS TO

SUPPORT CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN

THE AREA WHO ARE IN NEED.

The original Windermere team was committed to making a difference

and giving back in any way they could, but they soon realized an even

greater difference could be made if they had a common purpose, and so

the Windermere Foundation was born.

“We started with an idea that would give every Windermere agent the

ability to make a difference,” states the foundation site. “Housing is our

business, so helping homeless families seemed like a natural fit. We later

expanded that to include low-income families, with an emphasis on

helping children.”

Every single team member of Windermere Realty commits to giving

back, meaning there is 100 percent participation and the message is clear:

Windermere cares about the people and places they live.

In over 30 years the foundation has made a difference in thousands of

lives, supporting over 550 organizations.

Coeur d’Alene Realty affiliated with Windermere Real Estate in 1993.

“Recognizing that our culture of giving back to the community through

philanthropy and service was in alignment with Windermere, we were

proud to unite with the Windermere Foundation,” explains Patricia Krug,

co-owner and designated broker for Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty.

Each member of the Coeur d’Alene team is completely committed and

passionate about the difference they make every year, with every single

home sale they transact. “We love our community!” smiles Krug. “The

commitment that each of our 150 agents, our staff and our leadership

makes to support the efforts of the foundation enhances our corporate

culture by bonding a group of people who share a commitment to service

and who share a pride in making our community a better place for

everyone.”

Each agent with the company pledges to donate a portion of each

commission to the foundation. “So, as they stay busy helping people buy

and sell real estate, they are funding the foundation daily!” she adds.

Every year the team participates in a Community Service Day when they

get hands on in helping the nonprofits and organizations they support

monetarily. Combined, they have provided hundreds of volunteer hours

at the Children’s Village, doing lawn work, painting, spring cleaning, and

even building sheds, shelving, playground equipment, pathways and

fencing.

The foundation is prudent about making sure funds are going to

organizations that are in line with the foundation’s mission and supporting

those most in need. Every individual Windermere office is free to decide

how they want to distribute funds to the community, and various offices

have helped support school lunch and afterschool programs, housing

assistance for homeless families, food banks, homeless shelters and

nonprofits that provide basic necessities, such as

shoes, clothing, toiletries and blankets to families

in need.

Every year agents from each of the three Coeur

d’Alene offices volunteer their time to review

grant applications. The grant has to meet a certain

criteria before the committee will vote to move

the application for funding to the agents for a

vote. Namely, the program or organization needs

to provide shelter, food, children’s programs,

emergency assistance or other services to those in

need.

Once the application is voted through by the

committee, it moves on to a vote by the company

real estate agents. Votes are taken weekly at the sales

meeting and involve all agents in attendance.

Since their start with the foundation 27 years ago,

the Coeur d’Alene team has provided funds to

purchase boots and socks for 12,456 low income

children in the community. Last year alone, the

company raised over $67,000. Eighty percent of the

money collected came from voluntary additional

donations from agents, the community, and office

fundraisers.

In 2019, 30 percent of money gifted went to

providing boots and socks for youth; 23 percent

went toward emergency assistance; 19 percent

went to education and counseling; 18 percent was

allocated to shelter; and 6 and 4 percent were used

for youth programs and scholarships.

Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty was named

Idaho’s Brightest Star Business, a statewide award

given by the governor to acknowledge a business,

large or small, that has made a positive difference

in its community. They are the only real estate

company to receive this award—an honor that the

team doesn’t take lightly.

Looking to the end of 2020, the Windermere

Foundation continues to grow and expand its

commitment to helping the communities it lives,

works and plays in. Coeur d’Alene is one such part

of a larger foundation that has made a remarkable

impact on its own community—and continues

to do so. It’s part of what makes this home—our

home—such a wonderful place to live.

TIME-HONORED WAY OF TRAINING ON THE REBOUND

THE TRADES ARE MAKING A COMEBACK

BY TOM GREENE, NORTH IDAHO COLLEGE

Jobs in trade industries such as HVAC (heating, ventilation and air

conditioning), electrical and plumbing were in high demand before

the coronavirus outbreak. Now, with other industries facing layoffs,

furloughs, severe cutbacks and dramatic restructuring, trades could

be considered recession-proof.

“It’s a great way to make a living,” said Chuck Williams, North Idaho

College Workforce Training Center Electrical Apprenticeship instructor.

“You’ll always need to have people who can improve other people‘s lives

by using their hands—their skills.”

Williams has been an electrician for more than 30 years after starting this

career path when he was 41 years old. He currently works full time at

Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling and Plumbing in Spokane Valley,

where he also teaches in the apprenticeship program that is offered in

partnership with NIC. Williams said the problem-solving aspect of his

work is what keeps him young.

“The number one skill you need in this job is the ability to make things,

figure things out, make things work again,” Williams said. “My favorite

days are when I don’t have a clue about what I’m getting into when I go to

a job that day.”

This September, Williams will be teaching Jessen Day, 20, of Spokane

Valley, who is just beginning his apprenticeship. Day grew up in a family

that was in the construction industry. He said he knew early on he wanted

to work in trades.

“I was the kid who they’d give me a toy and it’d be destroyed in a week

because I wanted to see how it worked,” Day said. “When I was little,

electricity just seemed like magic.”

The NIC program allows apprentices to take classes on their schedule—

nights, weekends and online—while they gain on-the-job experience.

They typically work 40 hours a week, pulling a regular paycheck, until the

end of four years when they are eligible to take the test to become a skilled

journeyman in their chosen trade. The academic hours they earn during

the apprenticeship also convert into an associate degree from NIC.

The NIC Workforce Training Center collaborates with several employers

in the area, such as Mainstream, to offer the apprenticeship program. Grant

money is available from the Idaho Department of Labor for employers,

apprentices and NIC. Employers and NIC receive money for running

the program, and apprentices can receive money for equipment needs.

Apprentices are also eligible for scholarships through NIC, and the license

they earn is a federal license that is valid all over the country.

For Williams, and now Day, the apprenticeship program is more than just

a job. It’s more than continued education.

“It’s my entire life,” Williams said, adding that at 70 years old, he has no

plans on retiring. That option is financially available to him, but he’s not

ready for that life yet, he said. He’s still having fun.

“This is what I do,” Williams said.

Jessen Day, 20, is pictured in front with Chuck Williams, 70, at a

classroom in the North Idaho College Parker Technical Education

Center. Day is participating in the NIC Workforce Training Center

Apprenticeship program. Williams is an instructor in the program.

For more information on the NIC apprenticeship, as either a prospective

apprentice or employer who would like to participate, visit NIC.edu/

apprenticeship or call Brenda Hamilton at 208.769.7735.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

• Demand for electricians is predicted to grow 10 percent by 2028,

faster than national average.

• Demand for HVAC mechanics and installers is predicted to grow

13 percent by 2028, faster than national average.

• Demand for plumbers is expected to grow 14 percent by 2028,

faster than national average.

Rewriting the Story of Aging

By Jeff Pufnock L.Ac. Ph.D. and Jessica Youngs L.Ac.

Like all material things in our world, we humans are destined to age.

As children, we observe aging around us as gray hair and wrinkles.

Science proposes many theories to explain aging, ranging from

genetic limitations and free-radical damage to metabolic limits,

but there is no single accepted explanation for why this biological process

occurs. What we do know is that aging is a complex process whose outcome

depends on multiple factors, both internal and external to our bodies.

The aging story that most of us know is that it inherently means weight

gain, decreased mobility, reduced energy, memory decline and an

increased propensity to cancer. However, we all know someone who defies

this description, and this helps us see that this story about how aging is

supposed to happen or what runs in our family is just that … only a story.

The key is the realization that we have a choice to rewrite this story away

from one that ends with the inevitability of cancer, disease and dysfunction.

The practice of prolonging longevity was a subject of study and lore

that occupied many writings from ancient China. From the perspective

of Chinese medicine, aging is a natural process of degeneration that is

unavoidable. However, in comparison to our Western story of inevitable

disease, this process of aging is viewed without a negative connotation and

can be slowed and balanced to be more graceful with less health problems.

HEALTHY TIP

MAINTAINING THAT SUMMER GLOW

While the lazy days of summer are keeping you busy, don’t forget to

exfoliate to keep your skin silky, smooth and clear. Whether you choose

to use a body scrub or polish, mask or peel, exfoliation aids in bringing

new, fresh skin to the surface of the body, which in turn will help you to

maintain that summer glow.

AGING IS A

COMPLEX

PROCESS WHOSE

OUTCOME

DEPENDS ON

MULTIPLE

FACTORS, BOTH

INTERNAL AND

OUR BODIES.

According to Chinese medicine, the material basis for

all physiological functions in the body involves two

components: Blood and Qi. As we age and are exposed

to the daily insults of our lives, the quantity, quality

and balance of these two components diminish. The

term Qi describes our vital life force and the motive

energy driving our organ functions and performing

all biological processes in the body. The term Blood

refers not only to the fluid itself but also to the

functions of blood such as carrying nutrients, oxygen,

hormones and the immune system.

Chinese medicine dictates that healthy functioning of

the body requires that both Qi and Blood are balanced and moving freely throughout the body. As we age, the

balance and quantity of Qi and Blood naturally decrease, and this unbalanced state leads to physiological decline.

Simple lifestyle choices ensure these two components stay balanced with age and reduce the likelihood of serious

illness. Continued daily movement like walking, yoga or Tai Chi keeps the Qi (energy) of the body moving, which

also moves the Blood and prevents stagnation in the body. Eating unprocessed foods allows easier digestion and

replenishment of both Blood and Qi. Lastly, regular acupuncture and bodywork can treat old injuries or areas

where Qi and Blood are not moving properly and prevent future illness or disease from developing.

While it is impossible to rewrite the pages of the past, it is always possible to change what has not yet been written

and determine how we desire our story to end.

HELPING OUR CHILDREN THRIVE

HOW TO SUPPORT A STRONG AND

BALANCED IMMUNE SYSTEM

BY SCOTT PORTER

As we head back into fall, there is

a lot of thought and discussion

about the well-being of our youth.

Many questions just do not seem

to have the answers that bring adequate clarity

and certainty. Yet, as we walk through challenging

decisions, I think we can all agree that the health

of our kids will always be deserving of attention.

The younger ones in our community have been

affected strongly by many of the changes this year

as schools were closed and parents stayed home

a great deal of time. Interestingly, our schoolage

children have also been the group that was

least affected by the viral infections that have

concerned many of us.

When asked for guidance on what support to offer

our young ones right now so that they remain

healthy, I find myself encouraging many of the

things we already know drive wellness. From

eating well to being active, I reinforce that lifestyle

and diet go a long way toward optimizing wellbeing.

There is no substitute for a whole-food, nutrientdense

meal that leans toward lots of vegetables,

quality sources of protein, clean fats and some

fruit. What this means though is that two things

get put lower on the list—stuff made from flour

and sweet snacks or drinks. For some, eliminating

gluten and dairy will also be important.

Yes, it is the same old story—do not feed kids

anything more than small amounts of sugar and

processed foods. This is important for a wellbalanced

and responsive immune system. The

trick is these are the foods that taste good and

are fun to eat. So, I completely understand the

challenge.

Sleep is at the top of my list as well. This means

more sleep than we as adults typically need. A

regular pattern and routine can be supportive and

give the immune system a chance to do its work,

repair what is needed and clean up the bits and

pieces our body does not like. A dark room with

regulated temperatures can help, along with some

ambient background noise like a fan or sound

machine.

It’s the same for us as adults. We need restful sleep

and high-quality food to function well. It is best to

get most of the nutrients and compounds we need

from what we eat. But I do find there are some

things we need to supplement.

Probiotics, vitamin D and Omega 3s are three

nutrients that encourage a healthy immune

system and can protect school kids during

challenges. I do also like the idea of taking a highquality

multivitamin that has some active forms

of B vitamins, antioxidants and chelated trace

minerals.

When one of our kids does get sick, there are

additional compounds worth considering—like

elderberry, vitamin C, mushrooms, echinacea,

propolis and curcumin. And even more sleep.

Kids are very resilient. Still, I think it is important

that we support our children to thrive in regard

to well-being and prepare their bodies to fight off

infections when they arrive.

Scott Porter, a functional medicine pharmacist, is

the director of the Center for Functional Medicine

at Sandpoint Super Drug.

Discomfort in Aesthetics

WHY YOU FEEL PAIN MORE INTENSELY AT TIMES, AND THE IDEAL TIME TO BOOK YOUR AESTHETIC TREATMENTS

By Kristin Carlson, Medical Esthetician

Four weeks after my son was born, I planned my first post-baby

treat for myself: an appointment at the med-spa where I worked

with my fellow esthetician. Growing what would be a 9-pound

baby boy wreaked havoc on my skin with hormonal breakouts

on my chin, jawline, and even my neck. He was worth it, but I couldn’t

wait to get my skin back in shape post-baby. It was a treatment I had

had many times before, so I knew what to expect. What I didn’t expect

was the amount of pain involved in that treatment I’d had so many times

before. My doctor later pointed out that the fluctuation of hormones postpregnancy

was the probable culprit for my sensitivity.

Here is some medical background on why we may be more sensitive

during certain times and the optimal time to schedule your aesthetic

treatments.

Estrogen is responsible for collagen production, hydration, thickness and

overall health of the skin. Our estrogen levels fluctuate throughout our

menstrual cycle, during and after pregnancy, and with perimenopause

and menopause. Some studies have shown these changes correlate with

how intensely a woman feels pain. According to one Health.com article,

estrogen helps to plump, thicken and protect the skin. Because estrogen

levels decrease around your period, your skin might be predisposed to

pain and sensitivity.

The same reasoning can apply to postpartum women. Estrogen levels also

drop dramatically after giving birth, possibly explaining my sensitivity to

my routine skin-care treatment after my son’s birth. On the other hand,

when estrogen levels are higher, for instance, mid-menstrual cycle, and in

menopausal women, pain tolerance tends to be higher.

Additionally, conditions such as stress, anxiety, heightened emotional

state and even depression are known to increase pain. An article in

EverydayHealth.com states there are many studies to support this theory.

Pain is regulated by our nervous system. The brain controls how we

perceive pain. If you’re stressed, anxious or depressed, the brain’s ability to

filter pain signals is affected and pain is increased.

So, what does this mean in regard to scheduling your treatments?

Schedule your more sensitive beauty treatments (waxing, laser,

microneedling, injections, etc.) mid-menstrual cycle (in the weeks after

your period). If you are post-pregnancy and nursing, remember you may

be more sensitive to your usual appointments than average.

Although there is conflicting information on this subject, one thing is

sure: We all want to get the most enjoyable experience out of our aesthetic

treatments. The expression “No pain, no gain” should not apply to your

beauty routine.

PREVENTING OUTBREAKS

Child immunizations critical to public health

BY MARC STEWART, HERITAGE HEALTH

HEALTH PROFESSIONALS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT

ANOTHER OUTBREAK.

Yes, COVID-19 is still first and foremost in

most people’s minds, however, preventable

diseases are waiting in the wings—ready to

cause another national health crisis.

Routine vaccinations for young children in the

United States fell during the first half of this

year as more Americans skipped routine doctor

visits and stayed home due to the coronavirus

pandemic, according to the Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention. The CDC warned

that measles outbreaks could result from fewer

vaccinations.

Locally, Heritage Health experienced a dramatic

decline in child vaccinations during the stayat-home

phases of the coronavirus pandemic.

Parents were afraid to bring their children into

the clinics due to the coronavirus.

“There has been a decline in routine well

checks for children during the COVID-19

pandemic and subsequent delays in vaccines

that are routinely provided at these visits,” says

Heritage Health’s Dr. Nicole Odom. “It is still

very important to stay on track with routine

immunization to prevent the spread of vaccinepreventable

diseases.”

It’s also the law. Parents must comply with

Idaho immunization laws in order to have their

children attend school. Idaho requires vaccines

for measles, mumps and rubella, diphtheria,

tetanus, pertussis, polio, hepatitis B, hepatitis A

and varicella. Children typically receive a series

of vaccinations from birth to 2 1/2 years of age,

and then again when they turn 4 years old.

Odom highly recommends parents schedule

well checks and immunizations as soon as

possible, noting Heritage Health has taken

extra safety precautions against COVID-19.

“We are typically very busy in August with all

the kids getting kindergarten and junior high

vaccines,” she says. “We have been reaching out

to parents to get patients scheduled earlier in

the summer to avoid an extra rush or vaccine

shortages in the fall.”

Diseases long thought conquered could

be making a comeback if people don’t get

immunized.

“A drop in community vaccination rates can

decrease herd immunity and lead to outbreaks

of vaccine-preventable diseases,” says Odom.

“And the last thing I think anyone wants right

now is another outbreak of any kind.”

FROM WALLA WALLA

to Hollywood

THE LIFE AND CAREER OF ADAM WEST

BY JOHN J. RASPANTI

PHOTOS COURTESY OF JONATHAN GRANT

CDALivingLocal.com

58


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,

CDALivingLocal.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

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.

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.

John J. Raspanti is co-author (with Dennis

Taylor) of "Intimate Warfare: The True Story

was included in the January 2019 edition of

2020 FALL

BEAUTY TRENDS

Now’s the time to refresh your routine

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

Although 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 attention-grabbing

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.

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

This fall, new beauty trends offer the

speak volumes with simplicity.

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 probioticpacked

deodorants that feed the right odor-fighting bacteria, to

bacteria-based 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 companies providing

all-natural beauty products

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, aluminumfree

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

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 new-world

Puget Soundkeeper to fight for the health and prosperity of their local

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 thoughout the day

By ABIGAIL THORPE

Life doesn’t slow down in summer, and between work, family and appointments, it can be difficult

to keep feeling fresh and ready to make the transition from work to happy hour without the dreaded

stop home.

Here is everything you need to keep your beauty game on point from morning till night. And the

best part is you won’t need to haul your entire beauty routine with you. Each item easily fits in a

purse or bag, ready and at hand for whenever the moment calls, so if you don’t have time to put

your face on in the morning, don’t sweat it.

1 2

TINTED MOISTURIZER

OR SUNSCREEN

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 allin-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.

CDALivingLocal.com

BRUSH

This seems like a no brainer to have in your bag, but the truth

is it’s easy to forget to throw one in. Do yourself a favor and

pick up a compact brush that takes up little to no room in your

purse or bag, and just leave it in there for those moments you

need to freshen up between meetings, or when the wind (or

kiddo) does an extra number on your hair.

COLOR STICK/

HIGHLIGHTER STICK

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.

DRY SHAMPOO

We’ve all been there—long week and no time or energy to mess

with washing, drying and styling our hair. Good thing we have

dry shampoo. Carry a mini version in your bag and you’re set

for that moment your hair decides to go from a stylish beachy,

natural look to the third-day flats. It adds instant volume and

cuts the shine, so you can even forgo the ponytail. Opt for a

more natural dry shampoo that won’t add too much buildup to

your hair or harm its natural shine and health.

5

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.

6

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

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

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.

Vine & Olive Eatery and Wine Bar

Your table awaits in the heart of Riverstone

By Jillian Chandler

The doors are open, and owner Naomi Boutz invites

you to pull out a chair and take a seat at the table.

With an atmosphere that is warm and inviting,

guests can feel the pride of ownership Naomi

exudes of the eatery she created in the heart of Coeur

d’Alene’s Riverstone less than three years ago.

“We keep things simple and soulful and as consistent as

possible,” she says.

Naomi is joined by Chef Josh Pebbles. An integral part of

the V&O family since August of 2019, his philosophy is to

highlight the best local ingredients with classic European

influences while infusing new-age techniques—creating a

memorable experience for each guest who walks through the

door.

SEASONS OF COEUR D’ALENE

At Seasons of Coeur d’Alene Fresh Grill, you will find a menu that is

delicious and always fresh! Whether you choose to dine in the intimate

dining room, at the vibrant bar or quiet fireplace lounge, it’s sure to be

an unforgettable dining experience. They also offer banquet and meeting

facilities. You can find Seasons in Downtown Coeur d’Alene just one block

off Sherman.

209 Lakeside Ave. | Coeur d’Alene

208.664.8008 | SeasonsofCdA.com

“We are always finding new inspiration in food and wine to

share with our customers,” smiles Naomi.

From the staples of Escargot prepared in a classic French

execution, to the Pork Shank with Creamy Polenta and

the Acorn Squash Frites, the menu never disappoints. In

addition, menu offerings change every few months for

seasonality, with new popular menu items including The

Catch of the Day (served with wild mushroom risotto) and

the Niçoise Salad with seared Ahi.

Love and passion shine through in everything they do at Vine

& Olive, where your table awaits in the heart of Riverstone.

Naomi shares, “Now more than ever, I’m just grateful to run

my own business, for the ability to create and the opportunity

to succeed without limitations.”

A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE LOCAL ARTISTS IN ACTION

BY JILLIAN CHANDLER

AUGUST

29 & 30

The arts are alive, and one experience you won’t want to miss is

the opportunity to see local artists in action during the eighth

annual Coeur d’Alene Artist Studio Tour.

“Initially, the tour was more about connecting local artists with each

other to inspire and learn from each other. But with the Open Studios,

it made sense to open it up to the public too,” says Ali Shute, executive

director of the Coeur d’Alene Arts & Culture Alliance.

Participating artists include those who have taken part in the tour in

past years, while new artists are juried by a committee for acceptance

to ensure quality work. “Over the last few years, I have been so

fortunate to get to know most of these artists and find that each

of them brings unique talents to the tour,” shares Ali. “I am excited

about our new artists—Tobias Sauer, Shelly Matthews, Betty Billups

and Leah Cohen—and can’t wait to get to know them and their work

better.”

The community can see these artists in action Saturday, August 29,

and Sunday, August 30, from 10am to 5pm both days. For those who

are interested in purchasing art, the Artist Studio Tour is a wonderful

opportunity to connect to the work you select by getting to know a

little bit about the artist.

“It is an excellent opportunity for the community to experience the

creative process through the eyes and hearts of the artists in their

own creative space,” affirms Ali. “It’s a chance to meet the artists, ask

questions, share ideas. The artists love the input of the public about

their works.”

Last year’s event saw 36 artists in 16 studios, but due to the current

pandemic, many artists have decided to skip this year’s tour, making

the 2020 Arts Studio Tour a bit smaller. As Ali says, “I like to call it

‘small but powerful’ and still a valuable experience for the observer.”

She adds that fostering creativity is good for communities, businesses

and overall quality of life, inspiring people to work together, encourage

problem solving skills and expand flexibility in thinking.

“Support of the arts is critical right now as we are all struggling; the

performing arts in particular, since they have very few viable options

during this pandemic,” says Ali. “I would encourage everyone to

choose their favorite and offer a donation in support of keeping the

arts alive. They are vital to our mental health, and we could all use

some positivity in this crazy time.”

2020 Studio Tour Map and this year’s artists, visit ArtsAndCultureCdA.
