Managing Withdrawals Carefully

Can Protect Retirement Income

This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones

Financial Advisor Ken Wood

Throughout much of your working life,

you contribute to your 401(k), IRA and

other investment accounts to help ensure

a comfortable retirement. However,

once you do retire, you’ll need to shift your focus

somewhat from building these investments to

using them—in other words, you’ll have to start

withdrawing from your portfolio to meet the costs

of living. How can you be sure you’re not taking out

so much that you risk outliving your resources?

If the financial markets performed smoothly and

predictably, year in and year out, any adjustments

you make would likely be more modest. But, as

you know, and as we’ve all been reminded the last

several months, the markets are neither smooth

nor predictable. Rather than constantly trying

to change your withdrawal rate and spending in

response to movements in the markets—which may

be challenging if you have grown accustomed to a

certain standard of living—you might be better off

adopting a more conservative rate at the beginning

Call or visit your local financial advisor today.

of your retirement. For example, if you are in your

mid-60s, you could start at a withdrawal rate of

about 4 percent, which also assumes an increase in

withdrawals (a “raise”) of approximately 3 percent

each year to incorporate inflation. By starting at

a more modest withdrawal rate, you would have

some flexibility for those years in which the market

drops significantly. And you could increase your

chances of extending the lifetime of your portfolio.

But even if you started out with a conservative

rate, you may need to review it during periods of

extreme market movements. If, for instance, your

portfolio were to fall 20 percent in one year, the

4 percent you had planned to withdraw would

actually become 5 percent because you’re taking out

the amount you had planned, but now it’s from a

smaller pool of money. If this happens, should you

consider making an adjustment?

There’s no easy answer. The amount you withdraw

from your portfolio has a major impact on how long

your money lasts. You’ll improve your likelihood of

success if you are able to be flexible and make some

spending adjustments—spending less on some of

your discretionary items, for example, or not taking

a “raise” until your portfolio recovers. Importantly,

your financial advisor can help run different

scenarios to determine if adjustments need to be

made to ensure you remain on track.

In any case, think carefully about your withdrawal

rate. By managing it carefully, and reviewing it

over time, you can take greater control over your

retirement income.

Thirty-four-year-old Savannah Mort

was born and raised right here in

Sandpoint, Idaho. Married with four

children (14, 12, 9 and 7), this stay-athome

mom and online health coach loves to

travel, spend time outdoors (skiing, hunting,

boating, fishing, swimming,), cook and read,

and spend time with family and friends. She

keeps busy and loves her life on her little farm.

Savannah is also the woman behind the Hoot

Owl Soup Kitchen in Ponderay, which has been

serving those in need in the community every

Monday for the past seven years.

Q. Seven years ago, you and your husband

decided to start a soup kitchen in Ponderay at

your mother’s restaurant, the Hoot Owl Café.

Can you tell our readers a bit more about how

the Hoot Owl Soup Kitchen came to be and the

inspiration behind it?

A. February 10, 2021, will mark eight years since

we started the soup kitchen. For my husband’s

birthday, he wanted our family to volunteer

together in a soup kitchen. Instead, God laid it

on my heart to open our own. I asked my mom if

we could utilize her restaurant as a place to hold

the soup kitchen, and of course she said, “Yes!”

Q. What role does your mom, Wendy Franck,

play when it comes to the Hoot Owl Soup

Kitchen?

A. My mom is truly a selfless woman. She has

always put others above herself. She allows us

to use her building in any capacity we see fit

for the soup kitchen. The Hoot Owl provides a

large pot of soup each week, plus they help put

together salads and desserts! She also spends

most Monday evenings spending time with

some—or all—of my children while I work the

soup kitchen!

Q. Since its inception, what has been your goal

in this endeavor (in addition to nourishing the

bodies of those in need)?

A. I am so grateful that we are nourishing

bodies AND souls. We really try to cultivate

an environment where people can come for

fellowship and have an outlet as well as eat. It’s

been so incredible and such a blessing to me to

see people come in need and leave filled up—

whether it be full bellies or full hearts. We want

to meet people where they are and step into their

world. We want them to feel heard, nourished,

loved on and acknowledged.

Q. How has the current pandemic impacted the

soup kitchen, and how have you adapted to the

situation while still being able to provide for

those in need?

A. We have not closed down at all through

the pandemic. During the initial quarantine

we were able to send meals to go through the

front window of the restaurant. We did notice

an initial increase in numbers in the early days

of COVID-19. We counted 250-plus meals one

week! I would say we are back to normal now,

however, each week always brings us a new face

or two!

Q. What do you find most fulfilling by being

able to serve others in the community?

A. For me personally, I love the connections

and treasured friends I’ve made through the

soup kitchen. Nothing fulfills me more than

seeing families or individuals going through

tough times (homelessness, addiction, having

babies, loneliness), being able to pray for them,

and watching them through their transition and

come out on the other end stronger. I know that

sounds so cliché, but it truly is so moving and

makes every Monday more than worth it!

Q. Have you discovered anything about your

local community that you didn’t realize prior

to opening the soup kitchen?

A. I have realized that Sandpoint’s homeless

and in-need community is larger than most

would think. I wish we had more resources and

outreach for our community. I know some of the

resources we do have are at capacity, which is

unfortunate.

Q. Is there anything else you would like to

share with our readers?

A. The glory is all God’s! He’s been faithful to

provide all of our needs for the soup kitchen.

Also, I couldn’t do this without all of our

incredible volunteers! I’m so grateful to the

people who volunteer their time, homemade

meals and their resources!

The Hoot Owl Soup Kitchen is open every

Monday, 4 to 7pm, and serves an average of 80

to 150 meals each week! Meals usually include

soup, casserole, salad, sandwiches, bread and

dessert. And Savannah is truly grateful to her

volunteers, which averages five to six each week,

who serve meals, wash dishes and visit with their

guests. A special—and free—Thanksgiving meal

is also prepared and served on Thanksgiving Day,

in which the Hoot Owl donates at least half the

cost of the Thanksgiving meal along with the soup

kitchen. The Hoot Owl Café, located at 30784

Highway 200 in Ponderay, is open for breakfast

and lunch 5am to 2pm Tuesday through Sunday.

A TRIP DOWN SANDPOINT’S

STORIED PAST

BY ABIGAIL THORPE

Sandpoint has changed quite a bit over the years—from the

peaceful home of local Native American tribes to the wild

railway days and later its transformation as a four-season

tourist destination—it’s seen it all. But one thing hasn’t

changed: the natural beauty that has driven residents and visitors here

for hundreds of years.

Before furtrading and the railroad brought irreversible changes to

the region, what is now Sandpoint was home to the Kalispel Tribe

of Native Americans, whose ancestral lands extended past all of

Priest Lake and Lake Pend Oreille, up the Pend Oreille River as far as

Canada and east to Montana.

They traded with the local Coeur d’Alene Tribe to the south and

Kootenai Tribe to the north, but the eventual arrival of fur traders—

and later the railroads and timber mills—transformed the area,

changing native lands and way of life, and the last Kalispel Tribe’s

annual August pow wows at City Beach were held in 1931.

Northwest Company fur trader David Thompson was an early settler

to establish a relationship with the local tribes, helping to establish

fur trading in the area in 1809. Thompson described the peninsula

that Sand Creek empties into as a “point of sand,” a name that would

forever stick with the area.

The 1880s saw the start of construction on the railway between

Montana and Pend Oreille that would transform the region from

a trading outpost to a railroad and timber town. In 1892 the Great

Northern Railroad arrived in what is now Bonner County, and its first

agents—L.D. and Ella Mae Farmin—bought the rights to 160 acres on

the west side of Sand Creek, what would ultimately become the start

of Sandpoint.

Sandpoint wasn’t always the peaceful, tranquil town it has come to be

known as today. In its early days it held a reputation for being one of

the roughest towns in the area. Visiting Austrian aristocrat William

Adolph Baillie-Grohman described it as “this wretched hole, one

of the tough towns in the tough territory of Idaho, where shooting

scrapes and hanging bees were common events.”

The area was known as “Hangtown” for its multiple hangings. “I

knew Sandpoint, known also as Hangtown, could hold its own for

depravity,” added Baillie-Grohman.

Local historian Bob Gunter writes the story of how Major Fred B.

Reed told the Pend d’Oreille Review about the time six men were

hanged at once. “I was through here with the Northern Pacific

construction gang in 1880, and Sandpoint was the toughest place in

the United States. Over at the end of your big bridge was ‘Hangtown,’

and it was over there that we had our necktie parties.”

But the wild west of Sandpoint didn’t last long, and as timber and

farming attracted more settlers to the area, the village of Sandpoint

was incorporated in 1901, later becoming a city in 1907.

In addition to a thriving timber industry, “stump ranches” sprung

up around the area. Using lands cleared of timber, farmers primarily

grew hay to feed lumber company horses—a natural fit for the short

growing season.

Go Sandpoint Magazine 15


Humboldt Lumber Co. became the largest saw mill in the

region after taking over Sand Point Lumber Co. and absorbing

the Ellersick brothers’ mill in Kootenai. In 1905, just 13 years

after the Great Northern Railroad was finished, Sandpoint

received its third railroad through town: the Spokane

International.

Three years later, work began on the first long bridge to

connect Sandpoint to Sagle. It was finished in 1910, and at

just under 2 miles long, was the longest wooden bridge in the

world. At the time, it cost around $50,000 to build and was

known as the “Wagon Bridge.”

The bridge went on to be replaced during the Great

Depression in 1934 with assistance from the Works Project

Administration. Like its predecessor, it aligned with First

Avenue in Sandpoint and retained its title of longest wooden

bridge in the world.

Twenty-two years later the bridge was rebuilt again, this time

in its current location aligning with Superior Street, and out of

steel and concrete—removing its claim to fame as the longest

wooden bridge in the world. The current bridge that carries

locals and visitors to Sandpoint was built in 1981 alongside

the old one. Drive across the bridge, and the view still takes

your breath away every time—as it’s done for locals and

visitors alike for decades.

In 1942, after the outbreak of World War II, Farragut Naval

Training Station was built on 4,000 acres on the southern

side of Lake Pend Oreille. The training station was the second

largest in the world, and the deep waters of Lake Pend Oreille

(measuring over 1,150 feet deep at the south end of the lake)

made the perfect spot for submarine acoustic testing.

The arrival of so many trainees and staff made Farragut

Idaho’s largest town, and the resulting overflow into Sandpoint

resulted in the Community Hall being used as a USO.

Bob Gunter later interviewed military bride Beth Knight about

her experience in Sandpoint during the war. “The people of

Sandpoint just opened their arms to the sailors. I believe I’m

correct in this, the USO in Sandpoint was one of two USOs

in the country that never charged sailors and their wives for a

thing. You could go down and eat, you could go play, and they

would see that you had a room if you needed one. The people

of Sandpoint did all that,” she told him.

The naval training station closed after the war, now converted

into Farragut State Park, where you can enjoy the lake and

explore the history of the region through the Museum at the

Brig. Many of the buildings from wartime are no longer in

existence, however, in 1949, several of the buildings were

floated from Farragut across Lake Pend Oreille to replace Page

Hospital.

That same year saw the last log drive in Bonner County on

Priest River. While the timber industry would remain in the

area, log drives on the river and lake would be a thing of the

past.

Sandpoint’s shift to a tourism destination began with the

opening of Schweitzer Mountain in 1963. Jack Fowler and

Jim Brown—a local timber tycoon who organized Pack River

Lumber Co. in 1940 to begin his “timber empire”—founded

the mountain with other investors and sold shares to local

residents. The mountain featured one chairlift, a three-story

lodge, a rope tow and T-bar.

Several years later, Brown bought out his partners and further

developed the mountain as a beloved ski destination. He added

a day lodge and apartment complex, and is credited for starting

summer at Schweitzer—offering lift rides for mountain bike

enthusiasts.

In 1999 Harbor Resorts purchased Schweitzer Mountain Resort,

further expanding the resort over the years to the premier ski

destination it is today.

Today when you walk or drive through Sandpoint, you’ll see a

thriving downtown in summer, with visitors and locals flocking

to the lake to enjoy the sun and beautiful Lake Pend Oreille

with its stunning views and vast expanses. In the winter, town

gets busy once again as locals and tourists head to the mountain

to hit the slopes—or head out for one of the many other winter

adventures Sandpoint is known for.

The timber and farming roots that started our town are still

strong, but the economy has diversified. With several large

companies like Litehouse Foods and a thriving tourism industry,

Sandpoint is once again in a new era. But it’s maintained its

history, its memories and its simple beauty. It’s easy to see why

Faith. God. Relationships.

North Idaho Realtor unites buyers with their dream home

BY JILLIAN CHANDLER

W

hen it comes to guiding clients through the process of buying and

selling real estate, Jackie Suarez brings her years of experience and

expertise home.

She attributes the success she and her business have seen over the years to hard

work, faith in God and the importance of relationships. A real estate broker for the

past two decades, selling in Sandpoint and throughout North Idaho, she plays a

crucial role in uniting buyers with their dream home.

Whatever your ideal property, from a mountain retreat, farm with acreage to

waterfront property or a home in town, Jackie will be there every step of the way

to help you find your real estate dream. Whether it’s your first home, retirement,

land, development or commercial property, Jackie will map the way and prepare

you every step of the way. Throughout the entire process, she can ensure open

communication to make the experience as smooth and rewarding as possible.

Consistently ranked among the top 10 percent of Realtors in the area, Jackie states

that communication and attention to detail are key. And experience matters. Let

her lead the way. She’ll work hard and remain with you every step of the way to

help you get the best property at the best price and terms.

Her years of prior experience give her a unique inside perspective of the mechanics

of financing and closing real estate transactions. Her customers, fellow agents and

business professionals rely on her expertise and integrity—and you can too. Jackie

knows the market, and she’ll make sure you know your options.

As one recent client wrote, “Jackie is a great example of an outstanding real estate

agent. She communicates thoroughly, in a very timely manner, and finds answers to

any questions asked. We highly recommend Jackie to others looking to purchase

real estate.”

Jackie is grateful for the small-town atmosphere Sandpoint has to offer, along with

the relationships she has built over the years. She is humbled to be a part of such a

generous community.

If you are in the market of buying, or selling, reach out to Jackie today. She will

guide you on your journey and take you home.

Features Top Grain Leather in a Saddle colored finish with power recline and power headrest adjustments.

Find ultimate comfort with this statement piece. Inspired by cowboy boot designs, Mustang's intricately stitched

arm design adds a unique, distinctive touch to this style. Large stitching in a contrasting leather throughout the

piece adds yet another layer of texture and visual interest. Divided back cushions, subtle bucket seats, and fully

padded footrests provide blissful sink-in comfort for long movie nights with friends and family.
