THE FINAL DAYS OF SUMMER
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
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.

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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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

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
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 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
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.
ON THE TRAIL.
If you’re at all active, you can conquer this short
trail. When you’re finished, you’ll be glad you

How to Help Your Loved Ones (and Assets) Avoid Probate
The importance of funding your trust
By Ryan Crandall, J.D., Crandall Law Group
Get personalized information
from an experienced
estate planning attorney from
the comfort of your own home.
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
• 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
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
• 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
• Your final wishes will remain a private family
matter instead of being publicized in the local
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

4-H Show to Continue
PARTICIPANTS’ HARD WORK TO BE SHOWCASED
By Colin Anderson | Photos Courtesy of Kootenai/Shoshone 4-H
Despite the cancellation of the North Idaho State Fair,
there will still be some activity within the fairgrounds’
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.

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
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
“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.
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
“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,
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.

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)
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
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

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—
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
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,”
“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

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
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.

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
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
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
The foundation is prudent about making sure funds are going to
organizations that are in line with the foundation’s mission and supporting

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
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

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.

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.
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.
WALKING, YOGA OR
TAI CHI KEEPS THE
QI (ENERGY) OF
THE BODY MOVING.
AGING IS A
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
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
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
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.

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
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

Child immunizations critical to public health

ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS
FROM WALLA WALLA
THE LIFE AND CAREER OF ADAM WEST
BY JOHN J. RASPANTI
PHOTOS COURTESY OF JONATHAN GRANT
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,
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
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
60 years, with
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.

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
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.
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
chance to both play with boldness and
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 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.

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
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

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

in 2011, Herbivore Botanicals lives up to its

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
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,

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

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

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
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
What we leave out of our CBD & CBG products is
just as important as what we put into them.
No junk, no chemicals, no preservatives.
Just authentic relief.

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
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

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

A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE LOCAL ARTISTS IN ACTION
BY JILLIAN CHANDLER
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

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

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.”
