Valuing our Freedoms

W

hen we think of the Fourth

of July, one of the first

things that comes to mind

is fireworks—of course!

Then there’s the paid day off from work for

many, and a day spent at the lake, beach,

river or park, or even a celebration spent

relaxing and socializing in the backyard

with a barbecue.

But many people often forget why this is a

day of celebration for us here in the United

States. What is the significance of July 4?

Let’s freshen up on some history.

July 4 marks an incredibly significant day for

us Americans, as it commemorates the day

the United States officially became its own

nation, as the Declaration of Independence

was adopted on July 4, 1776—and America

was born.

Although the Fourth of July has been

celebrated each year since 1776, it didn’t

become a federal holiday until nearly a

century later, in 1870. And it wasn't until

1941 that it became a paid holiday for

federal employees.

As we celebrate our independence this

July 4, we must not forget all of those who

have fought for this nation and those who

continue to fight each and every day to ensure

our freedoms and safety. Those who serve

the greater nation as active-duty military

(and our veterans), and those who serve

closer to home as firefighters and policemen

and women; they all have a significant role

to serve and protect. May we never forget

that these men and women sacrifice daily so

that we may live our lives knowing that our

families, our friends, our communities, our

nation, are being protected every second,

every minute, every hour of every day … all

because of those who have dedicated their

lives to ensuring the greater good for each

person in our nation.

We at Like Media want to say, “Thank you.”

As we celebrate Independence Day,

remember that there are those on the front

lines who instead of spending time with

their loved ones on this holiday are in

uniform ready to protect at any moment.

Let’s remember to honor them this July 4.

Beach-Lover's Paradise in the Northwest

FURNISHING A CHARMING WATERFRONT HOME

By Deann Hammer, Interior Designer

Broadway Design recently furnished a charming waterfront home. The

homeowner is a single woman in her mid-30s, who is bright and talented,

and owns her own mortgage company. The client requested a coastal

theme with a “Serena and Lily Co.” feel. Deann Hammer was ready for

the challenge.

The woodwork was gorgeous but a bit too heavy, so we

had the balusters on the stairs painted Sherwin Williams

high reflective white to lighten things up. The walls were

originally yellow, so we cooled things down by painting all

the walls Sherwin Williams Rhinestone. It is a lovely color

that plays well off of the water and contrasts the white trim nicely.

The kitchen was previously updated by the former owner, although the

dining banquette needed a refresh. Our designers selected new bench

seat cushion fabric in Sunbrella Grey Ticking, added custom decorative

pillows, and punched up the seating area with three large woven grass

light pendants that give the space warmth and drama. A solid walnut

modern single-pedestal dining table was also added to set the stage.

The great room is quite large, so we added a 6x4-foot tall wide custom

framed octopus art piece above the mantle and an extra-large woven

round mirror over the TV to play off of the extra high ceiling height. Two

seating areas were created to break up the large expanse. The chairs by the

fireplace are from Palacek, with custom performance fabric (wet bathing

suits are okay!), and they are flanked by solid brass drink tables. A freestanding

bar cabinet rests near the fireplace for a refreshing cocktail after

a day in the sand.

The large sectional is custom made in a performance fabric as well

to handle dogs and beach life. The coffee table is made from ground

seashells and is called the “Clamshell Lava Table” by Palacek. It is cast in

a polymeric plaster with crushed up shells on the top, giving it a lustrous

shimmer to the finish.

Upstairs, the loft is adjacent to the client’s open office area and is a

wonderful place to sit and watch the sea life swim by. We placed a large

sectional with a limestone coffee table so she can put her feet up and relax

without having to worry about scratching a table or leaving water marks

on her table.

The themes are timeless, with custom-made

art and oars hanging on the wall with a

gentle nod to the sea

The upstairs guest rooms are darling with twin end-to-end builtin

beds in one room, and a queen bed in the other. The themes are

timeless, with custom-made art and oars hanging on the wall with

a gentle nod to the sea without overwhelming the space with nick

knacks and shells in glass vases, typically seen in a beach motif.

There is a sitting area in the second bedroom with ottoman and floor

lamp for private guest lounging, and a coffee bar in the hall outside

that room for easy access from the office for a quick pick-me-up while

working, or for guests.

Deann and her team feel truly blessed to be a part of this special home.

FREEDOM TO

SERVE

Turning ideas into actions

By Trish Buzzone, Thinking Partner, Executive Director,

The John Maxwell Team

Researching the past to

protect your future

This month, as we celebrate

Independence Day, it's important to

think about how we put that gift of

freedom into practice. How are we making a

difference for others, for our community and

for ourselves?

These questions remind me of a business

associate who built the idea of service into

everything he does. After completing his

active-duty term in the U.S. Army, Kevin

still wanted to serve. He weighed the idea of

becoming a firefighter, but he had a young

family to support, and a year of unpaid

schooling wasn’t in the cards. Kevin chose to

learn a trade. He took a job in the warehouse

of an air conditioning company, worked

hard, listened to those with more experience,

and took every opportunity to grow in his

knowledge and skill set.

Ten years later, Kevin opened his own air

conditioning company. He still had the same

passion to serve that led him into the military,

and Kevin built his company from the ground

up with service baked into its DNA. As the

company grew, he hired other veterans,

because he knew they would exemplify the

spirit of service that had become his brand.

Kevin also wanted to give guys fresh out of

the military an opportunity to build a good

life as civilians. He’d seen fellow veterans

struggle, and Kevin knew if he helped them

find purpose, they would have the opportunity

to thrive.

Today, decades after he started in that

warehouse, Kevin and his team continue to

make a difference. They’re helping retired

veterans with household needs, so they live

comfortably; helping recent veterans find

meaningful work; and helping them get

connected with the training and services they

need to build a good life for themselves and

their families. They’re also active with the Boys

& Girls Club, making sure kids know how to

take right action at a young age, so they have

the best opportunities to grow into the people

they want to become. In these ways, Kevin

and his team are making a difference for three

generations in his community every day.

None of this happened by accident.

It began with a person who took action to

make a difference. Kevin wanted to give back

to his fellow veterans and to the community

that supported his growing business. So, he

asked three questions:

What matters to me?

Who is working on that?

How can I get involved?

For Kevin, the answers were “veterans and

kids,” “local veterans groups and the Boys

& Girls Club,” and “donating time, expertise

and resources.”

He started by offering A/C tune-ups and

repair for veterans and the Boys & Girls

Club facilities. He had the skills and the

resources, all he had to do was act. While

doing those things, he saw other opportunities

to meet needs: job training, education,

counseling, encouragement …. Once again, he

chose to act.

Looking for opportunities to serve and

choosing to act is something all of us are able

to do. Kevin’s story shows how a person aware

of opportunities and willing to act makes

a big difference. Today, let’s celebrate our

independence by asking ourselves:

What matters to me?

Who is working on that?

How can I get involved?

Then, when we find the answers, act on them.

All of us have the ability and the opportunity

to make a difference. When we do, it will

encourage others to do the same. And, when

you do, please share it with me. I’d love to hear

your story!

GREEN LIGHT FOR RIVERSIDE PARK

GRANT WILL FUND NEW DOWNTOWN TRAIL SYSTEM

By Colin Anderson

THANKS TO THIS

LATEST GRANT AND

CONTRIBUTIONS

FROM THE

COMMUNITY, IT

WILL SOON HAVE

AN ENTIRELY NEW

LOOK AND FEEL.

and maybe a happy dance.”

That’s the celebration that 9B Trails

“Excitement

President Tess Rae described from

herself and the rest of the organization when it was

announced they had finally received a nearly $75,000

grant that will ultimately help complete their flagship

project: Riverside Park.

The application was 120-pages long and took Tess

some three months to complete. She was up against

statewide, city and county projects, as well as the

Forest Service and other nonprofits eager for the

grant. After making it through the initial screenings

and a year delay from the pandemic, 9B Trails was

informed in April that their application was under

review and, on April 15, it was finally approved.

“In addition to the nearly $75,000 with this grant and

$22,000 in monetary and in-kind donations required

for match, as well as another grant for interpretative

signage, the total for the project is $104,248.00,” Tess

stated proudly.

While several groups have attempted to revitalize

Riverside Park in the past, a lack of funding and

resources often derailed any serious action on the

area. Tess attributes 9B’s vision and tenacity along

with amazing community support as key factors in

seeing this project finally coming to life. “We started

working on this project three years ago by meeting

with all of the various stakeholders and [through]

public meetings sharing our ideas on how to create

an amazing trail system for the community. Since the

new trail system is greatly needed, the community

support has been tremendous. We received more

than 20 letters of support (these letters can be found

online at 9BTrails.org/riverside-park-trails) from

individuals, businesses and local entities supporting

this project.”

In its current state, Riverside Park is more of an eyesore

than a recreation point. Some of the deficiencies

include a lack of any developed trailhead or trail

system, and no ADA access for the area. Cyclists have

to share the road with motorized vehicles, and there

is no signage, benches or designated viewpoints. The

area has also been damaged by vehicle traffic, is rocky

and muddy in places, and is in desperate need of

landscaping and weed removal. Thanks to this latest

grant and contributions from the community, it will

soon have an entirely new look and feel, and Bonners

Ferry residents will not only have another great place

to recreate but have a beautiful natural area to be

proud of once again.

Plans for the grant money include a new 1.85-mile

connected looped trail system that will consist of

three trails and offer new trailside and trail facilities

for the entire community. The project also includes

providing access to a nature pond for bird watching;

three trail fitness station clusters for exercising; an

information kiosk; interpretative and trail signage;

18

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


viewpoints with benches; and improved access

to a water trail along the Kootenai River for

kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding.

The new Riverside Park Trail System will be

available for all users interested in walking,

jogging, biking, skating or requiring ADA

accessibility, and in the winter can be used for

snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

“These trails will offer year-round access and

benefit a diverse group of non-motorized trail

users, fitness enthusiasts and nature observers.

Most importantly, this trail system will provide

ADA recreational opportunities, currently not

available, for all ages and abilities to use and to

enjoy,” said Tess.

While there are numerous recreational trails on

federal land around Boundary County, many

are located at least 5 miles from town and are

either in remote areas or up in the mountains.

“For families with young children, the elderly,

those with limited mobility or women traveling

alone, those locations are not always ideal,” said

Tess. The new community trail system now

offers a rare opportunity to not only provide

a safer environment for anyone, regardless of

age, gender or ability to improve their health

and to use, but also provides easy access with

amazing views of the surrounding mountains,

the scenic Kootenai River and District 2

farmland.

The new layout will also allow cyclists,

pedestrians and those in wheelchairs to avoid

having to share the road with vehicles, heavy

equipment and logging trucks.

The trail is also a very short walk across the

Kootenai River Bridge from the downtown

business district, the Kootenai River Inn and

the Visitors Center, encouraging those working

or visiting to also access the trail amenities—

promoting better health, well-being and

quality of life for all.

More than three years ago, 9B Trails made this

project a priority. Funds came in from generous

community members, and the group is excited

and thankful to have received so much help

and support from locals who are just as eager

to see the area revitalized.

Plans are already moving forward, and

construction on the trails is in the works. 9B

Trails is organizing several opportunities

for locals to be involved with it as well. You

can follow its social media feeds @9BTrails

or reach out via email at 9BTrails@9btrails.

org for volunteer opportunities or to follow

the progress of the project. You can also visit

9BTrails.org for additional information. If all

goes well, residents and visitors alike will be

enjoying the park by June of 2022!

KOOTENAI RIVER DAYS

This four-day celebration returns filled with

community and connection

BY COLIN ANDERSON

The festivities are back, and it’s time once again for Kootenai

River Days. Bonners Ferry’s biggest get-together will be held

from July 21 through July 24 at locations all throughout

town. Family and adult fun will be had—and plenty of

it. Remember, if you don’t feel like being too far from the

action, you can set up camp for free at both the Boundary County

Fairgrounds and Riverside Park.

On Wednesday, the Pearl Theater will be showing a free family friendly

movie—the original ”Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”—at 1pm.

On Thursday, the featured event will be the Rotary hosting a Wine Walk

(tickets can be purchased from Riverside Auto Center). Participants can

sign up to take a leisurely stroll from stop to stop and enjoy a sip or two

of wine at each location. You’ll get to sample several different styles and

might just find a new favorite along the way!

Friday is when the weekend really starts to heat up. Crazy Days officially

kicks off, as does the live music. You’ll find the Street Dance raring to go,

and taking center stage this year is North Idaho locals and fan favorite

Jam Shack. The dance kicks off at 7pm and will wrap up around 11.

On Saturday it’s a question of how much fun can you fit into a single

day? A great way to start is to enter the Birdies for our Brothers golf

tournament held at Mirror Lake. If golf is too slow a pace, consider

entering the Kootenai River Run instead. This year’s run offers both a 5k

and 10k distance, with both races going off from the fairgrounds at 8am.

Back in town you can wander the street fair and visit with various

vendors who will be providing a wide range of items and information.

The Farmers Market will also be open, so you can grab the freshest

seasonal produce from local purveyors. Kids will enjoy face painting and

bounce houses 4 to 7pm, as well as plenty of food and drinks to keep them

going throughout the day. The ever-popular Cornhole Tournament also

returns with several brackets in which to enter and compete for prizes.

To register for the tournament, reach out to Stephanie Lewandowksi at

208.255.6086. There is an All-Class reunion going on with plenty of fun

events scheduled for each graduating class from over the years.

From live music to tournaments, food and drink, and good old-fashioned

community fun, there will be something for everyone again this year at

Kootenai River Days. Get ready to celebrate!

Fourth Annual Birdies for Our Brothers

Saturday, July 24, 9am

This 18-hole, four-person golf scramble kicks off with a shotgun start

at 9am at Mirror Lake Golf Course. Originally a softball tournament,

Bat for Our Brothers, the event was created to provide an opportunity

for the family and friends of CJ Erickson and Rob Gust, who passed

away in June 2016, to get together once a year and raise money for the

Rob Gust - CJ Erickson Skool Scholarship created in their memory. The

event pivoted from softball to golf as a way to involve more members

of the community.

The event includes a four-person team golf scramble (all spots are sold

out as of press time) and other fundraising competitions such as a putting

race, though there will be a $5 late entry fee.

The course includes a 5k and 10k, which brings you in and around the

city of Bonners Ferry, with both courses starting and finishing at the

Boundary County Fairgrounds.

Cost is $25 ($30 Canadian) with T-shirt, $10 ($12) without T-shirt. To

ensure you receive a T-shirt, your entry must be received no later than

July 10. This year there is also the addition of a team category for the 5k

run. There are finisher prizes and door prizes, and net proceeds from

the race will go to help the Bonners Ferry High School cross-country

program, as well as college scholarships for deserving local runners. To

Summer is the best time to get out and

enjoy the wonderful hiking, biking

and camping spots that the Northwest

is famous for. While more and more

people are finding the beauty and serenity

of these special places, carelessness with

fire could lead to devastating consequences.

The National Interagency Fire Center is

predicting an above average fire season for

much of the West with increased awareness

for Southeastern Washington, the Cascades,

Central Oregon and Northern California.

A dry spring combined with a predicted hot

and dry summer, could see our air quality

reduced in the second half of summer as fires

even hundreds of miles away can have a great

impact on the region.

While many fires are caused by lightning

strikes igniting timber or grassland, the

majority are in fact caused by humans.

According to the United States Forest

Service, most years nine out of 10 wildland

fires are human caused. Sometimes it’s a

blown electrical pole or other cause out of

our hands, but as evidenced throughout

recent history, carelessness with a campfire,

running engine, fireworks or cigarette can

also lead to catastrophe.

There are simple precautions to take as to not

be the cause of a fire.

One of the leading causes of wildland fires

is campers not properly extinguishing their

campfire. If your fire is lit in a primitive

site, be sure you have at least a 10-foot

circumference away from any fuels that

could be ignited by sparks leaving your fire

ring. Keep fires small and only burn clean,

dry tinder and never burn garbage that could

be lifted away by the wind. If your campsite

is in a designated campground, be sure to

only light a fire within the fire pit or ring. A

common mistake when extinguishing a fire

is to just dump a bottle of water on it until the

flames are out. While water is a good start,

be sure to mix in dirt with a shovel and mix

thoroughly. Your fire is extinguished only

when you are able to place the palm of your

hand on it without needing to pull back.

If you are simply going for a day hike, be

conscious of where you park your car. A

hot engine parked over dry grass can spark

a fire, and you could lose your vehicle in

the process. The same is true for off-road

vehicles. Stay on designated trails, and be

conscious of your surroundings.

Finally, pay attention to the current fire

danger and fire restrictions of the forest you

are visiting. If fires are not allowed, do not

start one. When conditions are elevated to

“High” or “Extreme,” not only are the chances

of sparking a fire greater, but the chance

for a large-scale fire greatly increases due

to the conditions.

Be sure to keep an eye on the weather as

well. If it’s been hot in your area and a

thunderstorm rolls in, it might be time to call

it a day. Fires sparked by lighting can fight

through rainfall and grow quickly in the

right conditions.

IN FOCUS

NORTHWEST FLAVORS

PLENTY OF FOOD AND DRINK TO SAMPLE

ALL SUMMER LONG!

BY COLIN ANDERSON

Most of us probably have a favorite local restaurant. It’s the

one you can always count on for a solid meal, especially

if the family can’t agree on what to eat. Many of us also

prefer a certain style of wine, be it Cab or Rosé, or the particular hop

combination used in the IPA produced at the brewery down the street.

While there will always be brand loyalty, the near staggering amount

of quality eateries and drinkeries around the region has provided eager

customers with a wide range of food and beverages in which to challenge

their ever-evolving taste buds. The competition challenges chefs,

brewers, and bartenders to utilize their creativity to attract an audience

that’s always looking for what’s new, different, or downright tasty.

One of the best ways to find these unique offerings is by attending one

of the region’s outstanding tasting events. While 2020 wiped out these

wonderful festivals last summer, many are back again in 2021, and ready

for the sound of clinking glasses and audible yums over a backdrop of

live music. Here you can sample small bites and full plates from some of

the area’s best chefs. You can try a few sips from dozens of breweries and

wineries without the headache of traveling to location after location. Yes,

the tasting and celebration of Inland Northwest food and drink is back

on, and we can’t wait to get back to all of our favorites!

food, a beer garden with emphasis on regional craft beers, and to spend

a relaxing summer day in a beautiful setting. More than 20 food vendors

will offer up a wide range of cuisine to sample. Regional musicians will

provide the entertainment, and there are also arts and crafts vendors

displaying their creative works. Proceeds from the event help the local

Kiwanis and the community projects it supports.

enjoying live music all afternoon. After the event closes up, the music

continues on back in the Village throughout the evening hours.

‘Love People, Love Food, Love Life’

The place to escape to and enjoy a memorable meal

By Jillian Chandler

It’s been just over three years since husband-and-wife team Tony and Pamala

Fleck first introduced Two Tone’s Café to the Bonners Ferry community. This

casual, yet upscale, restaurant features global cuisine inspired by Italian, Asian,

Indian, Mexican and Hawaiian influences. From steak to seafood, burgers and

salads, and so much more, there’s something to please any palate.

“Love people, love food, love life” is their motto, and what they strive for each and

every day—not only in the restaurant, but life in general.

“We love serving our guests and creating dishes with a flair,” says Tony, chef and

owner. “We also believe in local sustainable practices that support other businesses

in town.”

At Two Tone’s, they source their dough used for their enticing scones from the

Bread Basket; beef is purchased from Woods; the coffee “Jack’s Black” comes from

Red Rooster/Under the Sun; produce comes from Homestead Produce and Super

One; and Huckleberry Thicket is the source for all of their huckleberry products.

Approximately 25 percent of all product sold is secured through the local Super One.

“These kinds of practices help support the families of those who support mine,” Chef

Tony affirms.

Tony is not new to the restaurant business. It’s been a lifelong passion of his, which

began at the age of 18. “I’ve been doing this since 1983,” he recalls. “I started as

a dishwasher at a Denny’s in the Tri-Cities after graduating from Bonners Ferry

High School, and from there I joined the Marine Corps and moonlighted at the

Yum Yum Tree as a short-order cook in Hawaii. When I got out of the Corps, I

attended Washington State University Pullman, where I was a kitchen manager in

an Italian restaurant.”

When the opportunity arose for the Flecks to create a restaurant of their own,

greeting their guests and serving them delicious meals prepared with passion,

there wasn’t any hesitation. And fortunately for Bonners Ferry, Two Tone’s Café

came to be.

“It’s been great coming back to my hometown and the hometown of my mother, her

parents, and their parents. “My great-grandfather, Jesse Meeker, started a blacksmith

shop in 1917 that became Meekers Machine Shop, where my grandfather Bob

Meeker spent most of his life working. Who knows, maybe Two Tone’s Café will be

around for 90 years.”

During the summer months, live music plays every weekend and Wednesday nights

from 6 to 9pm in the restaurant’s beautiful outdoor oasis—the “secret” garden patio.

TWO TONE’S CAFÉ

6536 Main Street

208.417.3040

There’s more behind Two Tone’s than just the food. It allows the opportunity for

Tony and Pam to give back. “The success of our business depends upon so many

people. Our workers are our family. They help Pam and I support our family while

we help them do the same.”

Along the lines of their “love people, love food, love life” outlook comes the passion

to impact the community by supporting those who may go unnoticed. Some of

the programs the Flecks support include Warm Meals from Warm Hearts, Carry

the Fallen Ruck March, Leadership Class, Festival of Hearts, and other various

fundraisers and auctions in which they can help fulfill the needs of the community.

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


“It feels good giving back, again, what was so freely given to our family and others,”

Tony states. “I’ve had the privilege of meeting some good people growing up here

and out there in the world. The ones who impacted me most were the ones who

were looking outside themselves; people who are really trying to make the world

a better place.”

To show their appreciation to those who serve our country, our state, our city and our

schools, veterans, law enforcement and schoolteachers receive a 10 percent discount

when dining at Two Tone's Café.

“We live in a beautiful place surrounded by wonderful people,” smiles Tony. “Two

Tone’s Café and our secret garden patio is a place you can feel that energy and escape

the chaos and uncertainty of the world.”

"If we don’t see you tonight, we sure hope to see y’all down the road at Two Tone's Café!"

“I’ve had the privilege of meeting some good people

growing up here and out there in the world. The ones

who impacted me most were the ones who were

looking outside themselves; people who are really

trying to make the world a better place."

KEEPING OUR WATERWAYS

CLEAN

SMALL ACTIONS SEE BIG SOLUTIONS WHEN IT

COMES TO OUR WATERWAYS

BY RACHEL KELLY

We live on the beach. Sand, water, sunbathing,

picnics and boating ... we’ve got it all. Every

summer, or sometimes all year round, there’s

a rush to the waterways. The boats, jet skis and

kayaks all come out to play. Which is something wonderful!

Living where we live, it’s a privilege. As locals, we get to enjoy

the beauty of living in the pristine Pacific Northwest all year.

It’s a well-kept secret (or is it?) that we live in some of the most

beautiful landscapes in the world. But with the pristine waters,

the open space and the snow-capped mountain ranges comes

a certain weight of responsibility. Sometimes even frustration.

“Where there’s people, there’s trash,” says Weston Cedarblom

of Coeur D’Love, a conservation organization founded to help

keep trash out of our waters. That’s the reality of living by major

waterways: It’s the place to be. Locals and visitors alike come

to appreciate the beauty. However, during the rush, often it’s

the locals who are stuck with the backend of the pollution. It’s

no wonder that we rate preservation to be of high importance

around here. Pollution always ends up in the water, and here

with our rivers, lakes and oceans, we can see it. It’s a shame to

see something so lovely go to waste.

Comments in response to seeing trash in our waterways on

social media include lots of negativity (go figure). In between

the threats and general disappointment, there’s actually a lot

of ideas. Should we up the ante on punishments for litter?

But then, who would enforce it? Maybe there should be a

special litter police. Or, maybe we can be more proactive in

speaking out when we see someone littering. But then ... there

are just so many people. Can we really be in every park, by

every waterway, to point our fingers at the litter bugs? Some

people are just all for giving up. It’s destroyed, might as well

stop trying! Ultimately, all this negativity doesn’t bring about

solutions. Finger-pointing feels good, but it doesn't pick up

trash. “If you love something, you take care of it,” says Weston.

When it comes to the trash that often comes along with the

summer season, the solution is simple. What you take in you

pack out! While you’re at it, pick up a little extra. When it

comes to the health of our towns, cities and waterways, there’s

no time to play the blame game. We’re all in this together for

the sake of what’s ours.

And that’s just it, isn’t it? This place is ours. At the end of

the day, we love where we live. It’s up to us to take care of

it, a euphemism that’s easier said than done. It might seem

complicated, but Weston boils it down to two common

commodities: time and money. If you don’t have money,

then give your time. And if you don’t have time, give your

32

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL 33


money. There are plenty of products out there whose

profits go toward conservation. Coeur D’Love is just

one such organization that sells products, as well as

actively encouraging community participation. Giving

one of two basic commodities is simple enough—and

something that most people can get behind.

The decisions that we make today don’t just encompass

us. Today’s pollution is greater than our generation.

Keeping our waterways clear ensures clean drinking

water, fishing and recreation for future generations.

Water is life. Without it, where would we be? To clean

it up we need a game plan. This is why research-backed

information to support keeping our watershed pure is

so important. Research confirms a solid direction for

preservation efforts, fuels advocacy, and highlights

specific opportunities for community involvement.

Nonprofits like the Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper

provide that research, and are, not surprisingly, greatly

reliant on their volunteers. Other city organizations, like

the Tacoma Center for Urban Waters, also rely heavily

on community support to keep our waterways clean.

Just as water is connected, and knows no boundaries, so

must our connections reach across barriers to ensure its

preservation.

The connection between waterways is also illustrative

of its greater connection to all life. Water makes up 70

percent of the Earth’s surface for good reason; through it

we are all connected. In fact, we can often determine the

general health of our waterways by keeping tabs on the

local wildlife. The suffering of wildlife is often a precursor

to what we have to look forward to. If the wildlife is

healthy, we have a future of health to look forward to,

and vice versa. In the Puget Sound, salmon has steadily

been declining at an ever-increasing rate. Salmon is a

keystone species, which is another way of saying that

it is an essential part of our ecosystem. All manner of

life depends on the health of the Coho Salmon. Orca,

birds of prey, bears and seals eat salmon. In turn, a vast

number of other species suffer if those predators decline.

And on and on and so forth. Without salmon, the whole

of the land, and all the species living in it, die or suffer.

This is why the decline of salmon is so alarming.

University of Washington, and the Washington State

University published in 2020’s Science magazine an

unlikely culprit for the death of our salmon: car tires.

Vehicle tires shed tiny particles of rubber, which get

washed down the storm drains in the rain. Specifically,

chemicals within the “dust” from the tires are

causing harm to our waterways. These chemicals are,

understandably, more present in major urban areas

with more roadways. It’s the rubber and the chemicals

from the tires that ultimately kill the coho salmon. Since

many of Washington’s largest cities are on waterways,

understanding the ins and outs of stormwater pollution

is especially important.

This ground-breaking research was only just published

in 2020, but the idea of preventing pollution through the

protection of our drains is not. “Prevention of stormwater

pollution applies equally to all cities, regardless of

whether they have a separated sewer and storm water

system,” says Sarah Norber, an environmental specialist

for the Center for Urban Waters. It’s not widely known

that car tires specifically are a key part in stormwater

pollution, but it is widely known that cars are major

pollutants. In light of new and old research, using public

forms of transport can go a long way in preserving

our waterways. Other ways to preserve our waterways

include riding bikes, fixing car leaks, using commercial

car washes, limiting the use of pesticides and practicing

the proper disposal of chemicals. All roads lead to water,

and all drains eventually end up in our oceans.

When we analyze the challenges facing our waterways,

the problem can seem too overwhelming to solve.

It’s a difficult prospect to take on the responsibility

for our actions, as well as those of others. Anger takes

precedence over that of service. The temptation to throw

in the towel and move on is understandable. But we can

find encouragement in our successes. What we do does

matter, and what we’re doing together will work. Thea

Foss Waterway is just one such example.

Located in Tacoma, Washington, the once thriving Thea

Foss Waterway was characterized in the 1980s by oil sheen,

tar deposits and dilapidated buildings. The people and

wildlife in the area were laboring under the consequences

of over a century of environmentally insensitive practices.

There was even a resurgence of the Black Plague in the

area in the late 1970s. Though that particular example is

interesting, it may be partially unrelated. Regardless, it

does highlight just how bad things had gotten. So bad that

in 1983, the Environmental Protection Agency identified

the waterway to be a part of the larger Commencement

Bay Superfund site. This means that Thea Foss Waterway

was one of the most polluted places in the nation. The

kind of contamination that Tacoma, and Washington as

a whole, was tasked with cleaning up was staggering. As

a major waterway connected to the ocean, this pollution

was especially distressing. What’s more, the pollution

was generational. Having spanned over a century, it

seemed like things would continue to go along as they

always had. If it were not for a deep respect and longing

36

for something better, things would have gone

along as they always had.

However, in 1994, the city came together

to aggressively clean up the waterway. This

involved hundreds of soil samples to identify

exactly where the contamination was coming

from and resulted in the addition of several

new shoreline habitats. The city, businesses,

grantees and community members from all

over gave their time and money, a total of $105

million in funds. Keeping the storm water

drains clear of contaminants was an especially

important community effort that required

very little money or time, and yet has resulted

in big positive outcomes. Over a decade ago,

in 2006, the cleanup was completed. It is the

reason that locals can play, live and work safely

by the waterway today. Wildlife to the once

desolate area has returned. Since 2006, efforts

have been focused on capping off other sources

of pollution and keeping the waterway clean.

It has absolutely paid off. Later this year, the

Environmental Protection Agency plans to

remove the waterway from its list of Superfund

sites. It’s an understatement to say that the city

is heaving a collective sigh of relief. The people,

and the land, are at rest.

A little bit goes a long way when we’re talking

about the whole of our community. It’s true

that one person can’t fix the larger problem of

pollution, but a lot of us can. The truth is that

we’re everyday people, with everyday goals.

We just want the opportunity to jump in the

water when it’s hot, raise our kids someplace

where they can enjoy the outdoors, and grow

old in peace. Big projects take big people, who

have big connections, with big organizations,

and big pockets. But those organizations, our

home, is made up of us. Nothing will move, and

nothing can change, if we’re not emboldened to

do so. Taking responsibility for what we put

down the drain is just one example of a small

everyday act that makes significant changes

to wildlife, neighborhoods, and the health of

thousands of people.

As a whole, we are individuals with limited

means. Our acts of heroism are confined to the

every day. The little acts, like picking up trash

that we didn’t throw, or taking the bus, are acts

of significance. The pride that we take in our

waterways impacts the lives of those who live

and breathe in our environment. The way that

you personally approach the world affects the

larger picture. When it comes to water, our

decisions flow out to bigger and bigger places.

The overall problem may seem overwhelming,

but the solution is straightforward. If you see

it, pick it up. If you drink it, keep it clean. It’s

a mindset that, if it catches on, makes a big

difference. But, it starts with you. It starts with

us. When it comes to our waterways, we’re all

connected.

SHIN SPLINTS

And how to beat them!

By Andrew Mason, PTA

If you’ve ever had a burning pain in your shins forcing you to cut a

run short or take a break from your workout, chances are you have

encountered shin splints. Shin splints are painful and can show up

at the most inopportune times—affecting runners and other highly

active individuals alike. In this article, we will cover what shin splints are,

what causes them and what you can do to prevent and treat them.

What are shin splints?

The term shin splints refers to what is medically known as medial tibial

stress syndrome. As this name suggests, the tibia (the long bone on the

front of your shin) and its surrounding structures can become stressed or

overworked, causing irritation that is typically felt as a burning pain along

your shin.

What causes shin splints?

Though the pain you feel in your shin may seem sudden, shin splints rarely

show up overnight. Shin splints are generally a result of repeated stresses

that develop into the pain we are familiar with. These repeated stresses

occur when we push our bodies harder or faster than they are accustomed

to. Over time our bones and muscles can become overworked and unable

to deal with landing impacts or quick directional changes.

Here is a list of some of the most common causes of shin splints:

• Inadequate warm-up period prior to exercise

• Excessive training

• Muscular weakness, imbalances or tightness

38

HEALTHY TIP

MINDFUL MEDITATION

The mind-body practice of meditation has long been used for physical

relaxation and to increase calmness, improve psychological balance, and

enhance overall health and well-being. When you realize it's time to "take

a breather," don't ignore your body, heart and mind. Find a quiet place (if

possible), and focus on your breath while being mindful of your thoughts.

Just a few seconds of being mindful while focusing your breathing can have

immediate, positive effects to last throughout the day.


SERVICES INCLUDE:

Shin splints are generally a result of repeated stresses

that develop into the pain we are familiar with.

• Poor running technique or form

• Training on sloped or uneven surfaces

• Unsuitable footwear

• Flat feet (also known as fallen arches)

What are the best treatment options for shin

splints?

While the best and easiest way to deal with

shin splints is to prevent them in the first place,

traditional shin splint treatment involves a

period of rest (a few days to a couple weeks)

from the aggravating activity and periodic

icing for the inflammation. While taking a

few weeks off training is extremely frustrating

and the last thing you may want to do, it is

necessary to allow the overworked tissues time

to repair. Unfortunately, however, without

proper diagnosis and appropriate exercise

modifications, shin splints may reappear as

soon as you restart your training, putting you

right back where you started.

Here are some helpful tips to prevent or get

rid of shin splints:

• Stretch your calves and shin muscles

• Warm up before you begin your exercise

• Strengthen your core and leg muscles

• Check your training form

• Use a foam roller on your calves and shin

muscles

Though shin splints can be a setback in your

training, they are treatable. Seek out a provider

who is trained to diagnose and treat the source

of shin splints to get you back on your feet

as quickly as possible. By treating the root

cause through evaluation of muscle strength,

imbalances and tension, along with running

form, unique foot shape and footwear, you can

beat the pesky pain keeping you from enjoying

your workouts or getting out for a run during

these beautiful summer months.

Q&A

with Mike Martinez

BONNERS FERRY RESIDENT AND IDAHO STATE POLICE TROOPER

by COLIN ANDERSON

He was in fifth grade and 11 years old when he took an aptitude

test that was designed to help kids see professions that might

be their best fit based on their answers. “Before I finished the

test, I knew my answer was going to be law enforcement,” he recalls.

Trooper Martinez is a third-generation law enforcement official.

His father was an officer for the Salinas Police Department, and his

grandfather was a deputy for the Santa Clara County Sheriff ’s Office.

Martinez also has an extensive number of uncles and cousins who have

worked in law enforcement.

We recently caught up with Mike about his interactions with the

community, a few of the strange things he’s encountered on the road,

what it’s like to put on the uniform each day, and his advice for young

people considering a career in law enforcement.

Q. How long have you lived in North Idaho, and what brought you

to the region?

A. I was born in California. I moved to Missoula, Montana, when I

was 5 years old and did most of my growing up there. After graduating

high school in 2009, I moved to Coeur d’ Alene to attend North Idaho

College, where I met my wife. My wife grew up in Bonners Ferry, and I

fell in love with the area when she brought me up here to visit.

Q. What are some of the positions you've held during your career?

A. I started my law enforcement career in January 2015 by attending

the NIC Law Enforcement Academy. After graduating in April of 2015,

I was hired by the Bonners Ferry Police Department as a patrol officer.

After a couple years of working patrol, I was selected as the School

Resource Officer for the Boundary County School District. In 2018, I

was hired by the Idaho State Police (ISP) as a trooper. I attended ISP’s

grueling academy in Meridian and was stationed in Sandpoint after

graduating. As of recent, I have been transferred to Bonners Ferry to

perform duties as the Boundary County resident trooper.

Q. What are some of the partnerships ISP has with the local

community that you participate in?

A. As a resident trooper, it is important to work with and for the

community you are stationed in. This includes working with all first

responder and law enforcement agencies in the county. This may

include simple agendas like parades, fairs or the mock DUI crash scene

we put on for the Bonners Ferry High School students. This also means

working closely with said agencies for calls of service. Working with

other agencies is crucial. My favorite saying has always been: “One

team, one dream.”

42

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


"THIS CAREER, PROFESSION, JOB, WHATEVER

YOU WANT TO CALL IT, IS MORE THAN THAT. FOR

ME, IT WAS A CALLING. LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS

BEEN ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING THINGS

I’VE DONE IN MY LIFE. TO ME, IT’S THE BEST JOB

IN THE WORLD."

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL 43


Q. When you're not on duty, what are some of your hobbies

and interests?

A. First and foremost, I love spending time with my family.

Camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, sightseeing, skiing and

cooking are some of my favorite hobbies. Staying fit for duty has

also been an important agenda for me. To accomplish this, I lift

weights and enjoy going for jogs.

Q. Any strange or fascinating encounters with wildlife while

out on patrol?

A. Oh boy, where do I start! Patrolling most of North Idaho

comes with some interesting sights. When I first started for ISP,

I encountered a longhorn bull on Interstate 90 just east of Coeur

d’Alene. I had to get out of my patrol vehicle and corral the bull

off the interstate until the owner showed up with his trailer. The

owner sure did take a while getting there too. Another time I was

chased back into my patrol vehicle by a moose. I have also seen a

brown bear run across the highway in front of me.

Q. What is something the community might be surprised to

learn about the troopers servicing the area?

A. I think people are surprised when they see a trooper show up to

a call for service typically taken by a city officer or sheriff ’s deputy,

or patrolling county roads. Remember, we’re “State Police,” and

we can work anywhere or respond to anything!

Q. What advice would you give to a young person who

is considering a career in law enforcement, firefighting,

paramedic, or as another form of first responder?

A. This career, profession, job, whatever you want to call it, is

more than that. For me, it was a calling. Law enforcement has

been one of the most challenging things I’ve done in my life. To

me, it’s the best job in the world. However, we sometimes see the

worst of the worst and typically catch people at some of their low

points in life. It’s something someone should research, job shadow

and ask themselves, “Can I respond and make a difference when

people need me most?”

Q. What is something simple people can do that would make

your job a lot easier?

A. Stop breaking the law would be the easiest answer, but then I

would probably be out of a job. The biggest thing I could suggest

is being attentive while driving on any highways or road. This

means keeping your eyes on the road, going the posted speed

limit, and keeping distracted items away from you. Yes, this

means cellphones, which are not allowed to be in a driver’s hands

while operating a motor vehicle in Idaho.

Q. Anything else you would like to add?

A. First, to the Boundary County community: Thank you for all

the support you given first responders and law enforcement. It’s

much appreciated. I always tell people North Idaho is the best

place to work as a law enforcement officer. I love this community.

I will always do my best to provide this community with the

respect and service they deserve.

SAYING

'thank you'

Ways to show service men and women you care

by Rachel Kelly

PUBLIC RECOGNITION.

1Our service men and women give a lot of themselves, and often see the

ugliest sides of our communities. They do this so that we can flourish

in our everyday lives. So as you see them go about their everyday life,

which often involves many late nights, consider taking a moment to

acknowledge all that they do. Reminding them that what they do and

what they’ve done is worthwhile, by simply pausing in whatever you’re

doing to say, “Thank you.” Reminding them that they are seen.

TICKETS TO THE OUTDOORS.

Being out in nature is known to have a rejuvenating and curative effect,

especially here in the Northwest. This year consider supporting them as

they get some time out of doors, whether that means lending them your

kayak or buying their ticket to a mud run. If you teach yoga, consider

offering your services for free to your local firehouse. Buying gift cards

for relaxing physical activity, or simply including them in non-work

based community activities, goes a long way.

SURPRISE THEM WITH A NOTE.

As summer is here, and school is out, get the kids involved! Have your

3-year-old draw or paint a picture, while the older kids draft notes filled

with words of encouragement and thankfulness to those first responders

in our community. Have them help bake up a batch of goodies (or buy

some from your favorite local bakery) , package them up nicely with the

notes and pictures attached, and drop them off at your local firehouse or

police station. This simple, thoughtful gesture is sure to brighten their day

and remind them of the important role they play in our community—

and that they are appreciated.

JAMAICA!

Safely navigating a trip to the Caribbean

By Marguerite Cleveland

Venturing out on an international trip can be a bit intimidating amid the continuing pandemic, with testing requirements and

each destination with its own rules. Once I received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine and waited the requisite two weeks, I was

ready to travel. I chose Jamaica for this trip due to their Controlled Entry Program Protocols. For tourists, the Government of

Jamaica has established resilient corridors. You choose an approved accommodation within the corridor and then you can visit COVID-19

approved protocol-compliant attractions within the “Corridor.” There is an extensive set of measures to ensure health safety that approved

accommodations and attractions have all received training on. These are a strictly ensured set of protocols and standards. The most important

thing to know as a visitor is you must remain in the Resilient Corridor during your stay at your designated accommodation. You may leave

your resort to visit any tourist attraction that is certified by the Jamaica Tourist Board to be a COVID-19 Resilient licensed tourist attraction.

Pre-travel

Prior to your travels, get familiar with the travel requirements at the official Visit Jamaica website. When I traveled in May, seven days prior

to travel you are required to fill out an online travel authorization form, which is instantly approved, and you must print and bring it with

you to Jamaica. You must have travel insurance which covers medical expenses.

Some resorts include this coverage. You must also have a COVID-19 test done no

earlier than 72 hours prior to your flight. There is a calculator on their website

to determine when you can take it. It is important to check back frequently as

requirements do change. Currently a negative COVID-19 test is required to return to the United States. When making your travel arrangements,

plan how you will get this test. Many resorts offer COVID-19 tests onsite.

Insider Tips: Book Club Mobay. This service has a representative who will greet you at the gate when you arrive in Jamaica and whisk you through

expedited lines through security. Well worth the expense, especially if multiple planes arrive. You can also book it for departure, in which you’ll have

access to a lounge with food and beverages while waiting for your plane to depart.

Travel

I found the best way to maximize your time in Jamaica is to take a red-eye flight from Seattle arriving at an East Coast hub city such as Atlanta or

Miami, and then get on the first flight to Jamaica. With all-inclusive resorts, you pay the same rate whether you arrive in the morning or late in the

evening. It is better to arrive early so you can enjoy all the meals and activities you paid for. For my trip we splurged on First Class and felt it was well

worth it—especially as on both legs of our trip the plane was fully booked. Masks are still required in airports and on the airplane.

Upon arrival in Jamaica, we were met by the Club Mobay representative. Your temperature will be taken at the first screening point. The Club Mobay

representative escorts you through the whole process, even helping with your luggage. Once through security, she escorted us to the Sandals Lounge.

You also have the option to go to the Club Mobay arrival lounge to wait for transportation to the resort you are staying at.

Sandals South Coast

I chose Sandals South Coast for our visit because it is

located near a nature preserve and is the only hotel

on the beach in this area. It is about a 90-minute drive

from Montego Bay but well worth the long drive.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, it felt safer to be at a

more isolated resort. When selecting a place to stay,

make sure your resort offers plenty of amenities—

since you will be spending most of your time on the

resort. I was familiar with the Sandals Brand, having

stayed at other properties before. When they say

all-inclusive, it really is! There are nine restaurants,

multiple bars, and lots of great activities and a worldclass

spa. There’s even scuba diving! The only thing

you spend money on is shopping, spa treatments and

any of the resort excursions.

To make the most of a Sandals’ vacation, spend time

on the website and review everything that is included.

There are 21 different types of rooms at Sandals South

Coast within three categories: Luxury, Club and Butler. All categories

have access to all the resort has to offer, but some do have more perks.

We opted for the new “South Seas Swim-up Rondoval Butler Suite with

Private Pool Sanctuary” and then fulfilled a bucket list item for me by

staying in an “Over the Water Butler Honeymoon Bungalow” for one

night. These stay fully booked, and we lucked out with one night being

available. Our Rondoval suite was so luxurious. These round cottages sit

amidst secluded lush gardens surrounded by a river pool. The deck also

had a private plunge pool with a waterfall that was so relaxing. It was so

nice when staying on a large resort to have this quiet space to retreat to.

This trip truly was a wonderful escape from all that 2020 threw at us.

The tranquil ocean breezes, blue green Caribbean waters and white sandy

beaches had my husband and I relaxed in no time. One of the things I

love about the Sandals brand is the staff. They are warm and welcoming,

providing incredible service. The butler experience was worth the extra

expense. From the reserved lounge chairs by the pool or beach with

coolers of beverages to being picked up each night and escorted to

dinner, I loved being spoiled.

I felt very safe with the health and safety protocols at Sandals. The

company provides COVID-19 tests a few days prior to your departure as

well as the mandatory travel insurance. Everything was spotlessly clean,

the staff all wore masks, and the use of hand sanitizer was required when

entering public spaces.

The Over the Water Bungalow

Wow! What an incredible experience. This luxury retreat sits at the far

end of the resort with a private deck overlooking the sea. The sunset

views were stunning. Once we checked into this room we didn’t leave

until the next morning! The enhanced room service for these exclusive

suites even had filet mignon on it. The deck was fully equipped with

loungers, an outdoor shower and bathtub, as well as a box full of snorkel

gear and lifejackets. Each bungalow also has a beach cabana.

We booked a candlelight dinner, which we had served on the deck while

watching the sunset. So romantic and a great way to end our Jamaica

getaway to Sandals South Coast.

Insider Tips: There are official Facebook groups for each Sandals resort,

and it is a wealth of information from guests who have stayed at the

resorts, with Sandals providing moderators to ensure the information is

correct. It had been almost 10 years since my last visit to the Caribbean,

and I had forgotten how truly relaxing a beach vacation is. It was the

perfect antidote to 2020. We booked a visit to Sandals in Barbados for next

year. If you reserve at the resort, you receive a 10 to 12 percent discount

on your next visit. Sandals also offers military and first responders a 10

percent discount, which can be combined with other discounts.

in July!

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


IT'S TIME TO

CELEBRATE!

FOURTH OF JULY FESTIVITIES RETURN TO BONNERS FERRY

By Jillian Chandler

After much anticipation … it is time to celebrate! Not

just because this is the month we commemorate our

country’s independence, but because the festivities

to accompany the Fourth of July weekend are set to

return in grand fashion! And a day early! So you can enjoy the

entire weekend, adorned in red, white and blue, with your

friends and family.

It’s time to let your patriotism—and creativity—shine, as you

decorate anything from your classic cars and boats to golf

carts, bicycles and horses—yes! Horses! As Bonners Ferry will

kick off its Independence Day celebration at 11am on Saturday,

July 3, with the Hometown Parade, organized by Lucas and

Charli Turner of Turner Plumbing. This year’s theme is “2021

Our Past and Our Future,” and the couple is encouraging

all businesses, organizations and individuals to join in with

decorated patriotic parade entries. Lineup will begin at 10am

at the Boundary County Fairgrounds parking lot. Awards will

be given out for most patriotic float, best representation of our

hometown, and best of Badger pride. And every entry to the

parade will be entered into a drawing, with the winner receiving

a basket of “hometown” goodies. There will also be an award for

the most patriotic storefront in Bonners Ferry.

Plan to spend the afternoon enjoying all Bonners Ferry has to

offer and end the day with the 9B Arenacross & Independence

Day Celebration and Fireworks Show. John Becker has been

hard at work, passionate about doing his part in making this a

day to remember for both young and old. Registration is open

from 9 to 11am for this year’s 9B Arenacross; gates open to

the public at 4:30pm, with the excitement to begin at 5:30pm.

There will be food vendors throughout the evening as well as a

speaker or two after the races. The evening will conclude with a

spectacular fireworks show beginning at dusk (a little after 10) in

the ballfields at the fairgrounds—and the show is free to attend!

It's sure to be a memorable Independence Day celebration the

Bonners Ferry community, and its visitors, won’t soon forget.

Happy Independence Day, Bonners Ferry!
