Alyssa

My name is Alyssa Koberstien, and I am Like Media’s Marketing and Sales Executive for Bonners Ferry, Idaho! As

a Bonners Ferry native, I take pride in being able to serve our local businesses, guiding them with all their print

and digital marketing needs.

After graduating from Boise State University, I had the opportunity to return closer to home, choosing Sandpoint

as my new home base. Since moving back to North Idaho, I’ve had a lot of time to really get to know my

community, meet its people and support our local businesses. Nothing will beat the beauty that North Idaho has

to offer, or the kindness of its people.

I joined the Like Media team in October of 2020 as the company’s marketing coordinator, and in June 2021, I was

promoted to Bonners Ferry’s marketing and sales executive. At Like Media, we successfully provide a platform

and voice for our local companies to reach their target audiences in the most effective way, while saving time

and money, and building successful businesses that strengthen communities.

If you’re ready to let your business shine for all to see, let me, and our team at Like Media, lead the way!

Tread Lightly

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT RUG FOR YOUR HOME

By Deann Hammer, Interior Designer

Carpets are the foundation of our home. With summer in full

swing, many of us are shoe-free, and not only do carpets

visually impact the appearance of our home, but foot feel

and durability is of great importance as well.

Carpets should be taken seriously and purchased for

longevity, and many are considered fine art. With the popularity of

hardwood over the last decade, area rugs have taken center stage—and

are here to stay. Carpets provide an opportunity to add pops of color

and create a design theme that is unique to you. If you are interested in

decorating your home to the next level, a quality rug is a great first step

toward a room transformation.

When selecting wall-to-wall carpet, you want to look at the fiber content.

Nylon or wool is still the best choice. There are many other options, but

olefin, and other new-to-market fibers, easily crush and soil, and are not

made to last. I personally prefer a cut and loop for wall to wall. Some

fibers are looped like a Berber, mixed with cut fibers, giving the carpet

a nice visual appeal. I like low pile wall-to-wall carpets in multicolor so

that it gives the look of texture and hides foot traffic. The cut fibers in a

cut and loop also prevent the carpet from “running.” If a yarn gets loose

in a vacuum, it will not pull through the whole run like a Berber will.

Large, patterned carpets are fun in an office, bonus room or master

bedroom to add some character to a space. I also like to use patterns on

stair runners for interest.

There are staggering differences in the quality of area rugs. One of the

largest mistakes people make when purchasing an area rug is that if they

have a busy household, they think a less-expensive rug will be a better

choice, as it can be tossed when it wears out, or easily cleaned. This is

not the case! A high-quality wool rug will be much easier to clean and

will save you money in the long run, as it will last for many, many years.

The best quality wool rugs will have longer fibers that will not shed and

will maintain their pile height (not flatten with foot traffic). An average

cost for a “better” rug will range between $1,500 to $5,000 for an 8x10-

foot rug. They can top the charts at over $10,000, and if it is vintage, a rug

can be $10,000 to $20,000 for estate sized (larger than 8x10 feet).

Retail rugs sold online (like Pottery Barn), that sell for around $800 or

less, are typically made with short fibers and shed like crazy—steer clear

from those! When purchasing, try to run your fingers across them to see

if they shed. Shedding carpets are awful. They make a mess of your home

and really bother those with allergies.

Carpets should be taken seriously and

purchased for longevity, and many are

considered fine art.

I love silk rugs. They are ultra luxurious and can last lifetimes. The colors are more

vivid, but they are very expensive. I paid $7,500 for a 4x6-foot rug more than a

decade ago. But I love it! It is truly a work of art and looks exactly the same as the

day I purchased it.

Consider color. An area rug is a great opportunity to add life to a room. Handmade

rugs are the best, as they are not stiff, have natural dyes that are rich and luxurious,

and have a nice “flop,” meaning they bend and move and are not stiff. When

you run your hand over a high-quality handmade wool rug, it should feel almost

like silk.

Machine-made rugs are here to stay as well if your budget does not allow

for a real handmade wool or silk rug. These are often made from recycled

soda bottles and have a flatter feel to them. The current trend is more

muted colors and traditional “burned out” or vintage-looking styles.

An average cost for a polypropylene rug is around $400 to $600 for an

8x10-foot rug. Make sure to buy a premium pad to place beneath your rug as well.

I use a felt pad with a rubber back that stops the carpet from sliding on the floor,

while adding that extra cushy feel under foot. These pads cost between $150 to $300

for an 8x10 and will extend the life of your rug, as they allow the carpet to lift up off

of the floor and maintain its pile height.


SHARING

DELIGHT

North Idaho business combines signature art with

field-tested performance apparel to encourage

people to explore and enjoy wild places

By Trish Buzzone

Thinking Partner, Executive Director

The John Maxwell Team

here to cause delight,” Doug

Faude says. “To give people

“We’re

something that captures how

they feel when they’re fishing, hiking, skiing,

surfing, or just hanging out in the woods or

on the water, and to make enjoying those

moments even more satisfying.”

Doug is the owner and operator of Cognito

Brands (220 North 1st Avenue, Sandpoint), an

apparel retailer that specializes in wearable art

that functions as high-performance gear made

by and for outdoor sports enthusiasts. The

company, founded six years ago as Fincognito,

combines Doug’s passion for fishing, hiking,

skiing and other outdoors sports with the

knowledge and experience gained over more

than 27 years in the apparel business.

“When I found Sandpoint, I was blown away

with how vibrant and active this community

is: All the outdoor sports, as well as the great

brewpubs, a winery, the theater, art walks,

live music … We’re an artsy, beery, foodie

community surrounded by unbeatable outdoor

recreation. For me, though, what really made

Sandpoint home is the people. Everyone here

is invested in making this beautiful community

even better. All that positive energy creates

an incredible vibe that’s equal to just about

any major city you can think of, and with a

welcoming, small-town atmosphere you won’t

find in big cities.

“When I chose to make my home here, I

wanted to be part of that spirit of community

investment, so I started a business that reflected

my passion for many of the reasons people love

living in or visiting this area. In fact, I just got

back from four days floating the Coeur d’Alene,

fishing and hiking. Whether I’m floating the

river, fly fishing, taking the boat out on the

lake, or skiing down Schweitzer, I want gear

that holds up, that makes the experience

even better.”

Doug says, while all Cognito apparel and

accessories have been rigorously field tested,

what really captures the imagination is the

incredible art, images that evoke the delight

of exploring and playing outdoors in and

around North Idaho. Doug invests a lot of

time researching art and artists, looking for

authentic scenes and artistic interpretations

that convey the challenge, joy and wonder

of being immersed in the natural beauty

of wild places.

“Most people don’t really know what to expect

when they find our store. They walk by, glance

in the windows. Then they step inside, and

their jaw drops. The most common response

we hear is, ‘Wow! I didn’t know anything

like this existed. It’s exactly what I wanted!’

That reaction is why we do this. I was that

guy, someone who loved being outdoors and

wanted high-quality apparel with a unique

artistic style that reflected what I love doing

and performance that enhances the experience

when I’m on the water, in the woods, or skiing

down the mountain.

“There’s no better place to build this business

than Sandpoint,” Doug adds. “This is an

incredible place to play outdoors. And, at the

end of the day, it’s an incredible place to grab

some wine, sit out by the lake, and watch the

sun go down.

“Those are the moments we feel fully alive,

when we’re immersed in the beauty and

wonder of God’s creation. That’s what I mean by

delight, and that’s the feeling we want to reflect.

God created something truly wonderful, and

we’re able to share that delight with others.

“Those moments, those feelings, is what I hope

everyone experiences when they wear Cognito.

If they’re local, it’s a celebration of our unique

Sandpoint lifestyle. And, if they just came for a

visit, it’s a reminder of the amazing time they

had, and a reason to visit again soon.”

BOUNDARY COUNTY FAIR

101 YEARS OF BRINGING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER

By Tayor Shillam

THIS YEAR’S FAIR

THEME IS BARN

IN THE U.S.A.,

AND THE ENERGY

BROUGHT BY THE

FAIR’S ARRIVAL IS

EXPECTED TO BE

FELT ACROSS THE

COMMUNITY.

Summers in Bonners Ferry are simply incomplete

without the Boundary County Fair. As one of

the county’s oldest events, the Boundary County

Fair has been enjoyed by generations. In each year

since its origin in the early 1900s, the fair has brought

a different experience than the last.

With its countless local vendors, lively parade, and

the creativity of the community on display, the

Boundary County Fair is a perfect chance for Bonners

Ferry to come together to celebrate summertime and

everything that makes the town unique.

This year, the Boundary County Fair returns August

11 through 14, running from 8:30am to 9pm each day.

Its Opening Ceremonies will be held on Wednesday,

August 11, at 6:30pm. Family Fun Night is set to

follow the next evening at 6:30pm.

An entire schedule of events is lined up for 2021, with

pre-events that began in July including preliminary

4-H practice, showing and judging. Then starting on

August 11, a bit of everything can be found at the fair

throughout its long days of operation, including live

entertainment, pet shows, paper airplane contests,

and a motorcycle show.

“There are games and contests throughout, vendors

to visit, fair food to eat, and animals to see—and that’s

only scratching the surface,” shared Fair Administrator

Jodi Stoddard.

This year’s fair theme is Barn in the U.S.A., and

the energy brought by the fair’s arrival is expected

to be felt across the community. Stoddard advises

community members to keep a lookout for the local

businesses who will be decorating their windows in

support of the fair.

Made-to-order T-shirts sporting the fair theme

are now available at Vinyl Expressions on Main

Street. “We hope to make the fair T-shirts an annual

tradition,” Stoddard said. All proceeds from the

store’s T-shirt sales will benefit the fair.

Highlights of this year’s fair include the Boundary

County Fair Parade, set for Saturday the 14th at

noon, with plenty of local entertainment lined up

through the entire day. Cecil Lewis will bring his

Magic & Comedy show to the fair each day, and

this year’s musical entertainment will include local

country-focused favorites the Christy Lee band and

the Devon Wade Band. Music will begin at 5pm

Saturday evening.

Even with its long list of scheduled entertainment

and family fun, the Boundary County Fair remains a

labor of love.

“The Boundary County Fair is still free,” Stoddard

emphasized. “Free entrance. Free parking. Many

businesses donate time, equipment, money and other

resources to the fair every year.”

20

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


Stoddard encourages any locals who are

interested in becoming more involved in the

community to do so by volunteering at the

fair. “If you are new to the community and you

want to get to meet some fantastic folks, come

volunteer at the fair,” she said. A “small village”

of hundreds of volunteers work to help the

fair run smoothly every year. “Volunteers are

literally our life blood.”

Local families can lean into anticipation and

begin the festivities early by picking up a Fair

Book or coloring pages. Filled with long lists

of the fair’s daily entertainment and event

schedule, the Fair Book is available in both the

Fair Office and the Extension Office.

This year, the fair will host coloring contests,

with extra coloring pages available at the Fair

Office. The coloring contests are to encourage

local kids to stay active and creative throughout

the summer as they anticipate the fair’s arrival.

While the annual fair is a highlighted event,

a lesser-known fact is that the fairground

facilities are available for rent throughout

the year. The fairgrounds' team encourages

community members who are planning

events, summer camps, family reunions, craft

shows, fundraisers, and more, to check out

the Boundary County Fairgrounds to host

their party.

The Boundary County Fairgrounds are located

in downtown Bonners Ferry on the south side

of the Kootenai River. The fairgrounds are

surrounded by plenty of parking and contain

additional features to make visits enjoyable for

the whole family, including a fire pit, picnic

tables and a playground.

What is likely the fair’s most remarkable

quality is the unique way it unites the people of

Bonner’s Ferry. “The Fair has a way of pulling

the community together,” Stoddard said.

Now working on our annual sponsorship drive for 2021!

She shares just one more phrase to the

community before the event begins: “See you

at the fair!”

More information on fair events, facility

rentals and event participation can be found on

the county website at BoundaryCountyID.org,

or on their Facebook page at Boundary

County Fair.

Each year, we award thousands of dollars in scholarships to

local students and give monies in continued support to local

organizations for our youth, cancer support, hospice, the food bank,

Boundary Community Hospital and the arts.

SWING FOR HEALTH CARE

Fry Healthcare Foundation’s Annual Golf Tournament happens next month!

BY COLIN ANDERSON

There’s a good chance that the Fry Healthcare Foundation

has had an impact on your family. The locally operated

nonprofit collects and disperses funds, goods and

services to meet the ongoing needs of Boundary Community

Hospital and Extended Care Facility. This can be anything

from funding various programs at the hospital, to the purchase

of state-of-the-art medical equipment, or financing remodels,

expansion and other construction projects. The organization

has raised well over $1 million over the past two decades, and

a large portion of that comes from its two primary fundraisers

throughout the year.

After the event was canceled last year, organizers are hoping

for a great turnout in 2021 and are working to ensure that

there will be plenty of fun to be had at the annual Fry

Healthcare Foundation Golf Tournament. Mirror Lake will

again play host to this tournament, which is welcome to players

of all skill levels. The 12th annual event will take place on Friday,

September 10, with a start time of approximately 11am.

At the time of this writing, final details were still being put

together, but participants can expect to have a lot of fun, just as

in previous years. Assemble your team and compete for multiple

prizes. There are also individual awards and prizes for longest

drive, longest putt, most accurate drive, and closest to the pin.

The great golf ball drop will also be back, which always comes

with a fabulous prize to the lucky winner.

The event is always looking for prize donations as well as

sponsorships. If your business would like to participate, you

can reach out to Fry Healthcare at 208.267.6912 or email

fryhealthcare@bcch.org. Registration will be open soon and

you can get the most up-to-date details at the hospital’s website,

BoundaryCommunityHospital.org/foundation/annual-golftournament,

or by following the Fry Healthcare Foundation

IN SUPPORT OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT

THE BOB MANLEY’S FRIENDS OF NRA FUNDRAISER RETURNS THIS SEPTEMBER

By Taylor Shillam

This fall will bring the chance to celebrate a legacy of shooting

sports traditions in Idaho. Champions of the Second Amendment

will gather for dinner, raffles, auctions and fun, with a chance

to win exclusive prizes and collectibles at the Bob Manley’s Friends of

NRA Fundraiser on September 18.

The Friends of NRA is a fundraising program under the NRA

Foundation. It raises tax-deductible contributions to support

shooting sports.

The Idaho state division, Panhandle Friends of NRA, is a nonprofit

entity under the NRA that provides support for Idaho’s youth

programs, firearms safety and education, hunter training, shooting

range development, and Second Amendment education. They stay

committed to promoting firearm safety and education, while supporting

improvement in shooting-related programs.

“It’s the desire of all Friends of NRA committees within the state to

generate enough funds to fulfill every eligible grant request, fully

providing the people of Idaho with the education, equipment and

facilities to use their firearms skillfully, safely and responsibly,” their

mission states.

All of Idaho’s Friends of NRA committees combine their funds to

support Idaho programs. They look forward to the support raised at

events like the upcoming Bob Manley fundraiser.

“There’s something for everyone at a Friends of NRA event,” the

foundation promises. “From the moment you walk in, the atmosphere

is brimming with excitement. Whether you’re keeping an eye on

that unique item in the silent auction, trying your luck at the game

tables, or just dining in on some delicious food, you’ll be sure to have

a good time.”

Friends of the NRA are designed to be family friendly and offer limitededition

merchandise for sale.

Since 1992, the Friends of NRA has held over 23,000 events nationally,

reaching over 4 million attendees and grossing a total of over $975

million in funding for the NRA Foundation.

Closer to home, the Idaho Friends of NRA has awarded more than

$4.4 million in grants throughout the state to support the foundation’s

mission statement.

All net proceeds of the NRA Program proceeds go to support local, state

and national shooting sports programs.

Their goal for event attendees is that “whether you attend for fun,

fellowship or fundraising, you can be confident that you are helping

safeguard programs across the nation that prepare today’s generations

to be tomorrow’s guardians of the Second Amendment.”

Bob Manley's Friends of NRA Fundraiser will take place at 5pm

Saturday, September 18, at the Boundary County Fairgrounds Exhibition

Building. Tickets are available by table, per couple, or as single event

entry at FriendsofNRA.org/id. Attendees have the opportunity to

double their raffle vouchers if tickets are purchased before the Early Bird

deadline on September 8.

Raffle tickets for the Winner’s Choice raffle are available now, with a

total of just 400 tickets available at $10 each. Winners will receive their

choice from a selection of Friends of NRA edition firearms.

Tickets will not be available at the door, so be sure to plan ahead if you’re

joining in support of the Friends of NRA and the Second Amendment

this September.

SCHOOL YEAR APPROACHES

Teachers, students, parents anxious for ‘normal’ year

by Colin Anderson

As life continues to return to normal, local school kids are hoping the

same will hold true for the upcoming school year. While teachers

all across the country did their best to keep their students not just

on track academically, but socially, it is simply not possible to replicate the

in-person school experience from afar. While some students did well with

the responsibility of remote learning, others struggled to stay on task.

Parents, especially those with young children, are also eager to see

a return to a more normal school year. Balancing work, often from

home, with staying up to date on their child’s learning and finding time

to take care of the other important aspects and daily tasks of life, was

overwhelming at times. The school day provides a sense of routine in

which both students and their parents can appreciate, and was something

that might have been taken for granted previously.

As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, we take a moment to reflect

and say thank you to the educators and administrators who worked

tirelessly to adapt to ever-changing direction and protocol from local,

state and federal officials. We heard from numerous teachers about

their students’ resilience in the face of such adversity, and how they are

coming out of the experience not just as adaptable learners but more

compassionate toward each other, and more confident having undergone

such a chaotic school year.

Very soon the sound of whistles blowing, helmets smacking and soccer

balls being struck will again fill the after-school air as high school sports

return. The ring of the bell and the ensuing commotion as younger

children scramble outside of school, looking for their bus ride home

or their parent’s minivan, there to meet them at the end of a full day.

Even the sound of music, as bands and choirs reassemble in preparation

of filling their school auditoriums with beautiful music in front of a

packed house.

As much of life has returned to pre-pandemic normal, school districts

are still subject to more restrictions than most settings. Administrators

are finalizing plans as they make final preparations to welcome students

back full time, and if there was ever a year to keep up to date on the latest

information, it is this one. Immunization, class size, cleaning procedures,

masking and social distancing vary greatly from district to district,

and even from elementary to high school. Visit your district’s website

frequently so both you and your child are best prepared for what is to

come this school year.

As summer closes, kids can look forward to being in a classroom, instead

of in front of a screen. High fives and hugs can replace fist bumps and

air slaps, and an upcoming school year that will hopefully resemble

something we can call normal.

and aromatherapy. Essential oils fall into the quality, without which the benefits of the

of high-quality essential oils such as Young

Living, it doesn’t just stop at aroma. In an

unregulated market littered with products that

possess low levels of essential oil mixed with

mineral oil, Young Living stands out from the

crowd. The business grows not necessarily

through a masterful marketing plan, but by

honest manufacturing and the testimony

of its users.

Young Living members attest to the validity

of the oils, their life experiences providing

testament to the efficacy of Young Living.

Essential oils are the essence of plants with

life-giving properties, providing you a

concentrated dose of nature’s healing gifts.

Young Living essential oils are grown and

distilled through what Young Living has coined

the “Seed to Seal” quality agreement. This

agreement traces the path of oil production

from the plant to the bottle. This agreement

was born out of a pillar of science developed

by Young Living founder D. Gary Young.

Beginning in 1985, Mr. Young began to travel

the world, working with prominent perfumers,

aromatherapists and historians. In these

travels he developed a passion for essential

oils and their health benefits, recognizing the

importance of quality and purity. It is due to

this that Young Living oils can be used for

a variety of health purposes, from creating

calming environments to ingesting the edible

oils for a high concentration of nutrients. Young

Living essential oils are grown and produced

locally, with farm events that connect buyers

and members directly to the product. The first

of such farms was established by Gary and

Mary Young themselves in 1992 in St. Maries,

Idaho. They began with growing lavender;

two years later, Young Living Essential Oils

was established.

Highland Flats in Naples, Idaho, is another

such farm. They produce the Idaho Balsam

Fir, Idaho Blue Spruce and the White Fir for oil

distillation. Every year, Young Living hosts the

Winter Harvest and Spring Restoration events

to allow members to experience the Seed to

Seal process firsthand—and to connect the

farm directly to its community. Highland Flats

has a long 20-year history of giving back to the

community economically, but the farm also

gives back to the Earth through sustainable

farming practices. They do not take from the

land, they give back to it.

“We practice chemical free, regenerative

agriculture to contribute to the health of

our soil, air and water,” shares Michael

Carter, farm manager at Highland Flats.

The land itself was bought before the

destruction of a grove of “Christmas” trees

could be completed: They had grown too tall.

“In 1998, Gary was exploring for potential

botanicals when he found a field of Grand

Fir trees being bulldozed and prepared for

burning. He made an agreement with the

farm's owner to take all the overgrown trees

instead of paying to have them cleared,"

says Michael.

Their distillery process is unique to this area in its purity, transparency and

accountability. The distillery process begins and ends with an attention

to nature and sustainable farming practices; The soil is studied in their

onsite laboratory for healthy nutrients and bacteria. Live soil, versus empty

sanitized soil, is what makes their trees so full of its natural invigorating

health properties. Young Living Highland Flats Tree Farm works with nature

to do what it does best: heal. For the next part of the distillation process, the

branches and leaves are collected. The organic matter is then put in large

sealed stainless-steel vats. These vats are then filled with steam. In turn, the

steam becomes infused with the oil. The steam travels through stainless

steel tubing into a glass canister. Through the natural process of cooling,

the steam turns into water and sits in the bottom of the glass. The cooled oil

filters to the surface. The oil is then collected and brought to the laboratory,

where it is tested and refined for purity.

“The farm at Highland Flats has a long history of providing exemplary

products to the community,” says Michael. That history is felt here in

Northern Idaho. Highland Flats farm is a place of life and purity. Local

wildlife aids in the growth of healthy trees, and its farmers work in tandem

with those efforts. Young Living believes light and life to be an important

part of how they do business, and the farm in Highland Flats is no exception.

From seed to tree, from tree to oil, and from oil to people, Highland Flats

illustrates what Young Living is for the community: a place of rest and

respite; a lifestyle of health that permeates all its parts.

“The Highland Flats Farm fully employs 13 people in addition to seasonal

workers in the summer,” states Michael. “We have a complete logging

operation with economic impacts to many local businesses from auto

parts to catering and nurseries. An average year will bring a few hundred

international customers to stay and experience North Idaho while visiting

our farm.”

Their logging operations bring significant value to local landowners and

forest health, while minimizing waste and sharing unique Idaho forest

products around the world, he adds.

Highland Flats Tree Farm and St. Maries Lavender Farm are not the only

Young Living farms in existence. The company hosts unique sustainable

farms around the world, including in places such as France, Ecuador, Oman

and Croatia. The farm in Oman is especially unique in that it is the only

company in the world that has received permission to distill the Sacred

Frankincense oil for the Western world. Young Living doesn’t ask that you

trust them simply because of the width of their brand or the size of their

company. They earn that trust with farms that are held accountable by its

people and local communities. Farms that you can experience firsthand and

hear personal testimony as to its accuracy. Young Living is truly a company

that feeds both its community and its land. In this way they set themselves

up as an unarguable benefit. Transparency is a rare commodity these days,

and Young Living is new in its unembarrassed approach toward business.

With high-quality products and testimonials that follow their progress,

what’s there to hide?

If you’re interested in trying out the oils for yourself, Young Living oils can

be bought online at YoungLiving.com or from a brand partner (members

receive a discount).

Community Heart

A place to gather, grow and be fed

By Joshua Nishimoto

A

cacophony of conversation swirls about the room as I walk through the

front door. The smell of fresh bread wafts through the air as I move about

the bakery. People are talking in normal tones, with patrons at the front of

the line speaking slightly louder to order a sandwich, a delectable scone, or donut

and a preferred beverage, where a quiet bustling occurs above the chatter of happy

people sharing themselves over a meal.

From the back of the ordering line to the back of a large kitchen, employees in The

Bread Basket bakery happily buzz about in their environment. Everyone is calm,

moving in quick, decisive rhythm, without worry or any appearance of being rushed.

With wood paneling, tables and chairs, The Gathering Place feels rustic and clean,

offering patrons a comfortable atmosphere, leaving me time to ruminate. I could see

how one could spend a considerable amount of time working on a novel, reading a

book, pondering over life's mysteries, or how one could simply take a seat, eat a meal

and work out their problems.

Walking from room to room, I wandered into Sharon’s Country store, where I found:

books, toys, games, textiles, cheese, fruit, meats, candy, ice cream and many other

grocery items. One may also find cooking supplies and baking utensils in the back.

From specialty syrup and pancake mixes to rainbow of options for colored gelatin;

it’s a baker’s dream. Everything at The Gathering Place appears intentional. The open

flowing rooms give the impression that a great deal of thought and detail has gone

into the layout and selection of each item offered.

Walking through the garage-sized front storefront, I’m punched in the face with the

aroma of coffee beans and fresh fruit. As most caffeinated cultist coffee drinking

snobs, I’m used to the smell of coffee at coffee shops, but somehow the combination

of coffee and fresh fruit is intoxicating. I must admit that the coffee shop lured me in

first. Once I have my Americano in hand, I fold into a large leather chair; it’s game

over. I’ll be sitting here for a while. But alas … I must move on.

32

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


As I walk from store to store, I can’t help but think about The Gathering Place as a

special place. I wish I could tell you that the many varieties of confectionary delights,

including but not limited to vegan power bars, vegan candy, coffee and specialty dark

chocolate make The Gathering Place special. It could be the fresh produce, the vintage

piano in the coffee shop, or the kids’ sturdy wooden playground and babbling brook

between the buildings, or the fact that around every corner there’s a comfy couch or

rocking chair begging to be sat on for a while, but these are not special solely to The

Gathering Place.

After talking with the owner, I realized that The Gathering Place is a success because

of the people. They are the community, serving the community. They are just

as happy as their customers to be here, and it shows in both their work ethic and

dedication to service.

The owners and operators of The Gathering Place, Norv and Sharon Skrivseth,

could not stop going on and on about how thankful they are. If The Gathering Place

is their love song to the community that has embraced them, consider this article

their love note.

ANSWERING THE CALL TO SAVE

OUR WATERWAYS

SMALL ACTIONS EFFECT CHANGE IN OUR

GREATER WORLD

BY RACHEL KELLY

There are some things that we can’t do alone. There are

some things that we were made to face together, as a

community, as a state, or as a people. Things like raising

our families, or building safe neighborhoods, we face together.

There are some problems that require a whole world to come

together to ensure success. Large problems usually involve a lot

of people, and it takes a lot of people to solve them. Problems

like global pollution and global warming are big problems.

Problems that we can’t solve on our own. But together, united by

our common humanity, we can.

Here in North Idaho, we may not be able to see the ocean, but we

can most certainly appreciate it, its beauty and purpose. Many

of us make the time to travel west to take in the salty ocean air

and sandy beaches while being reminded of how expansive, and

important, our oceans are.

“It’s important to think about the way we live and its impact

on the planet,” says Tara Galuska of the Washington Fish and

Wildlife. And there are many such impacts. We can see those

impacts on the beaches and especially in our waterways. We can

see the impacts we have on rivers through the salmon and the

residents they support, such as bears. Another such resident is

the Southern Orca, resident of the Puget Sound and Canada,

which survives off of Chinook salmon. Salmon, in turn, survives

off of krill. Krill survives off phytoplankton. There is currently

estimated to be only 75 Southern Orca left in the whole swath

of salt water that exists from the Washington Sound up to the

Strait of San Juan de Fuca. Their low numbers, coupled with

their dependence on the health of the local waters, makes them

an endangered species.

The declining numbers of Southern Orca illustrates the circular

pattern of the effects of our actions on the world, beginning with

the global rise in temperatures. Scientists believe this is due to

an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide. There is still a lot

of research being done on exactly why this is happening, but it

is apparent that our world is changing. This change is affecting

our local residents, animals and humans alike. According to

the Southern Resident Orca Task Force, the carbon dioxide in

the atmosphere has stayed below 300 parts per million prior

to 1950. Since then, our carbon dioxide has increased to 405

parts per million. This has caused a one-degree Celsius increase

in global temperatures since pre-industrial levels, suggesting

that industrialization and pollution plays a part in the health

of our Earth.

Twenty-five percent of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

is absorbed by the ocean, causing an increase in ocean

acidification. Algae, often seen in freshwater ponds, lakes and

basins across Washington and Idaho, grows plentiful in order to

consume the carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. The ocean’s

acidification makes an inhospitable environment to most species

aside from algae, which adapts to grow in the ocean. Like a fail

safe for an imbalance in the atmosphere, algae grow wild, fed by

an overproduction of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is often

present due to various levels of pollution, from untreated sewage

to various inhospitable factories. Unfortunately, large amounts

of algae are toxic to all fresh and saltwater species.

The one-degree Celsius rise in global temperatures also affects

our streams and lakes, as snow melt decreases every year. The

re-circulated warm water makes for warmer winter lakes and

34

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL 35


ivers, and dryer summer river beds. Occasionally, a rise

in warm winter waters causes an overabundance of rain

versus snow, increasing sediment flow and mudslides.

The increased rain also runs into our drains, occasionally

overwhelming our water treatment plants. Which means

that sewage dumps into our ocean. More algae grows.

According to scientifically backed collected data of

Washington Fish and Wildlife, major effects from

climate change will be seen as soon as 2030. If conditions

continue as they have been, 2030 through 2052 will see

a 1.5-degree Celsius increase, which will result in the

following conditions: a 67 percent increase in days over

90 degrees, 38 percent decrease in snowpack, 16 percent

increase in winter streamflow, and a 23 percent decrease

in summer streamflow. To lower these temperatures, and

to decrease their overall effects, we must cut our carbon

emissions by 45 percent by 2030.

Our changing rivers affect salmon, who spawn in rivers

in the spring. They lay their eggs in the gravel, from which

alevins emerge one to three months after spawning. Fry

then grow from alevins, then develop into smolt. Smolt

then migrate to the ocean, where they grow into adults

and live for up to four years. All the combined effects

of pollution and carbon dioxide disturb the breeding

grounds of our salmon at all their various developmental

levels. Increased flooding impacts the salmon eggs and

alevins. Reduced spring flows affect the fry and smolt.

The increased algae in our oceans kill the zooplankton

on which the herring and other fish feed, in turn on

which the salmon feed. Salmon is considered a keystone

species, meaning that they are essential for the survival

of a variety of wildlife. As their rate of survival drops, the

underlying food web becomes unstable. This is why the

Orca are showing up less and less in Pacific Northwest

waters, and why the health of our fresh water suffers.

When salmon suffer, we all suffer. And so, our actions

come full circle.

Our seemingly small actions that we, as a people, do

on the daily affect the greater world. Trash from our

picnics on the beach, the chemicals that we use in our

cleaners, the medications that we dispose of, waste

water, improper drainage and everyday food waste all play a part

in pollution. Individually, our actions are small. But together, they

have a big impact. Everything eventually ends up in our waterways,

and in turn runs into the oceans. Our Earth is a complicated web

of interconnected pieces, of which we are also a part of.

“What we do as an individual and as a society to reduce global

warming and to improve water quality for these majestic creatures

also supports a better ecosystem for humans,” says Tara. Which

means that any movement toward change is a win-win.

The Orca are especially sensitive to any environmental changes, as

are all endangered species, which is why their numbers have been

in steady decline in our waterways. Individuals on land and water

play a large part in our Earth’s health, but so do large companies

whose ships produce a lot of emissions. Noting the sensitivity

that Orca and other wildlife have toward our actions in the water,

TOTE Maritime Alaska is one company that has decided to do

something about it.

Alaskan fishermen have long begun their spring season in the

southern part of Washington’s Puget Sound, and still leave every

year to fish for the summer season. As the polar ice melts, and

less and less re-freezes every winter, fishermen and shipping

companies are able to go further and further north. Many ships

and fishermen are advised to be whale wise as they expand their

reach into the northern waters. Ships are advised to keep their

distance from whales, and to steer away from fishing in their

feeding waters. There are even flags that local ships hoist to alert

other ships and boats as to the presence of whales. In 2010, the

coastal waters of North America were deemed emission control

areas. Most companies simply adhere to the bare minimum,

adhering to the emission controls and occasionally following

Whale Wise protocol.

TOTE Maritime Alaska is one such company that moves up

and down the northern seas. The leader in the industry in

environmental practices, they chose to respond to the emission

controls in a way that went above the bar for the safety of our coastal

species. TOTE Maritime Alaska invested in liquified natural gas.

In partnership with Puget Sound Energy, which is known for their

groundbreaking and accessible environmental activism, TOTE

Maritime Alaska outfitted its Orca class vessels to run on liquified

natural gas. Liquified natural gas decreases particulate matter by

99 percent, vessel sulfur emissions by 98 percent, and nitrogen

oxides by 91 percent. These numbers are groundbreaking.

Through decreasing the waste that ships normally dump into

the waters, TOTE Maritime Alaska has made some of the most

environmentally friendly ships in the world, showing the world

once again just how unique the Pacific Northwest is.

It is actions such as these that greatly affect our waters and the

sensitive wildlife that live in it. Large companies, such as shipping

and fishing companies, play a direct part in keeping our waterways

clean by the ways that they choose to conduct business. TOTE

Maritime Alaska is especially inspirational in their refusal to go

along with the status quo, and the hope is that other companies will

follow suit. In the face of such incredible effort,

we must do the same. We must allow ourselves

the flexibility of positive change. Maybe not

all at once, but perhaps little by little. Even the

smallest steps can have a big impact. Especially

when they inspire others to make steps as well.

Little by little, greater change happens. There’s

no better example of what a community can do

when it comes together than what we see here,

in the Pacific Northwest.

We can and do reduce the waste that goes in our

waterways, by participating in the reduction of

litter or washing our cars in professional car

washes (that have proper disposal techniques).

We can also conserve the water that we use,

treating it as the precious resource that it is. We

can reduce our carbon footprint by reducing

our car use, from riding bikes to riding public

transport. We can implement the wise use of

our resources, reducing food waste by planning

ahead and composting. Using products with

fewer chemicals not only betters our overall

health but benefits the health of our world.

Individually we are small people, with a small

impact. We live as people of character by our

individual everyday decisions. Together we live

as part of a delicate web called “community,”

where each impacts the other. As such, our

daily decisions of character make small dents in

what our world looks like as a whole. Perhaps

in our own small way we will inspire others

to go upstream against apathy. It is in these

seemingly small everyday acts that we make big

changes, first changing ourselves until we have

all changed together.

Global impact comes full circle, into our

backyards. Into the realm of personal

responsibility. As much as we want to pretend

that global problems are beyond our reach,

it’s the quality of our local watershed and the

health of our resident species that speak to just

how much we are doing to preserve its health.

When it comes to saving our waterways, we

must answer the call to responsible living. Just

like TOTE Maritime Alaska is doing. Just like

the Southern Resident Orca Task Force. Just

like us, who choose to not go it alone.

It is in this fearless spirit of innovation that we

discover that the world is capable of change.

Botox®

THE MIRACLE TREATMENT FOR WRINKLES

By Bri Williams, RN, BSN, Refined Aesthetics Med Spa, pllc

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 2

million Botox® treatments were carried out in 2019, and that

number has continued to rise. Considered the most common

cosmetic intervention, and with good reason, this miracle treatment can

take years off your appearance and prevent the signs of aging in a quick

(we’re talking five-minute) appointment. With FDA approval to treat

moderate to severe wrinkles in the frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead

lines, and a 92 percent “worth it” rating from consumers, this treatment

may be just what you are looking for to age gracefully and look as young as

you feel. Below we break down your most common questions.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a safe, purified, FDA-approved protein that relaxes and softens

the muscles responsible for causing frown lines, creases between the

brows, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and worry lines in the forehead. Years

of muscle use in our faces—from smiling, squinting, stressing—create

what begin as fine lines, and deepen over time. Botox® can heal that dermal

cracking or can be used preventatively to help deter their deepening.

How much does Botox® cost?

Botox® pricing varies from clinic and region, and your total price depends

on what areas you are treating and the number of units each individual

needs. To treat the area in between the eyebrows (a.k.a. frown lines) is

typically $240 to $300; the forehead is typically $150 to $180; and crow’s

feet are typically $300 to $450. It is best to schedule a consultation with

your aesthetic provider to determine the appropriate dosing and cost for

your individualized treatment.

How long does Botox® last?

You can expect to notice a more youthful, relaxed appearance within two

to 14 days, and results last three to four months. Some clients find that with

consistent treatments they get longer-lasting results.

How long will my appointment take?

Botox® appointments are quick and easy. Your initial appointment will take

approximately 30 minutes to review medical forms, discuss your goals with

HEALTHY TIP

ADD SOME ZEST TO YOUR WATER!

As you continue to focus on keeping your body hydrated and cool this

summer, you may be finding yourself getting a bit bored of that plain old

glass of water. For starters, you can squeeze a fresh lemon or lime into

your water. You can also add sliced cucumber or even watermelon and

strawberries. Plus, these items are high in water content too!

40

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


your provider, and develop a treatment plan.

After your first visit, your subsequent visits are

generally quick and take only a few minutes.

Does Botox® hurt?

Most patients describe Botox as painless. A

very tiny needle is used to inject Botox® in

strategic muscles on the face, and techniques

are used to make the treatment comfortable. If

you are concerned about pain or discomfort,

talk to your provider prior to treatment to

discuss pain relieving modalities such as

topical numbing cream and/or ice.

Is there any downtime or recovery?

Botox® is generally considered a “no social

downtime” treatment. Most patients leave

their appointment with small pink bumps

where Botox was injected, and these generally

subside in 15 minutes. Bruising is a possibility.

Patients are asked to avoid vigorous exercise

and facial massage for 24 hours after treatment.

When should I start Botox®?

There is not a set age when one should start

Botox®. Once you notice static lines (the lines

that appear on the face at rest), you can begin

to speak to your aesthetic provider about

treatment to soften the lines and prevent them

from getting worse. When treatment is started

early, the static lines can often be reversed.

After they have been present for years, they

can be more difficult to diminish.

Botox® is an excellent treatment option for

individuals wanting to prevent or reverse

the signs of aging. Talk with your aesthetic

provider to see if Botox® is right for you.

Taking Summer Style

into Fall

TOP FASHION PIECES FOR THE TRANSITION

TO A NEW SEASON

By Taylor Shillam

44

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


Living in a region with all four of the seasons inspires the need for strategic seasonal

shopping. As the heat of the Pacific Northwest summer begins to fade into shorter, cooler

days, key transitional pieces will become wardrobe essentials.

Light pieces that carry well into fall’s early days are a great way to extend your summer

wardrobe while staying seasonally chic. This month, shop your local boutiques for

summery items with staying power. Here, you’ll find shopping inspiration through a

selection of items to look for as you shop the Northwest’s seasonal styles.

Sweater vests. One of the season’s easiest ways to add a layer is the sweater vest! You’ll

notice sweater vests and sleeveless knits back in style as we come closer to fall. They’re

perfect as easy pieces to wear on their own as a sleeveless sweater, or to layer over a crisp

white button-down as the temperatures drop.

White button-down shirts. If you don’t have that crisp white button-down in your

wardrobe yet, now is the time to add one, as it’s sure to be a staple in the coming months.

Light enough to wear on its own or to layer under a cardigan, jacket, sweater vest or suit

jacket, the crisp white shirt is one of the most versatile pieces you’ll pick up this season.

While temperatures stay hot, mix and match the top with your favorite shorts and skirts

to stay cool.

Crop tops. Don’t put away your summer crop tops just yet! These hot-weather staples can

keep you stylish in the transition to autumn. Keep them to spice up a night out, as they are

easily covered under a jacket in the cooler evening temperatures, or keep them peeking

through light layers for a fun weekend look. Bonus style points for crop tops in fun fabrics

and leathers.

Neutral maxis. Maxi dresses made their comeback this year, and they are here to stay

through the autumn. Keep your neutral-toned maxi dresses for the fall—think creamcolored

shirt dresses paired with knee-high boots, or military-inspired greens with ankle

boots. Maxi dresses are an easy way to add a feminine touch to your autumn days.

Jumpsuits. Similar to the maxi dresses, jumpsuits are an easy way to quickly pull together

a chic outfit. An excellent combination of fashionable and functional, jumpsuits carry well

into fall festivities. From satin jumpsuits to dress up a night out, to military-style jumpsuits

making a statement in the daytime, you can easily layer them over a long-sleeve shirt or

underneath a wool coat on a cooler day.


White baby tees. That little white tee in your closet might be of bigger

value than you realize. Cropped tops have been in style all year, and that

doesn’t stop at T-shirts. Keep your fitted white “baby tee” as the ultimate

base layer, then build an outfit around it based on your plans. White

tees are easily paired with just about everything: this season’s carpenter

pants, trousers, destroyed jeans and maxi skirts, with additional warmth

brought by cardigans, denim, leather, or suit jackets.

Cropped sweatshirts. Those cropped sweaters you kept around for the

late nights coming home from the beach, lingering around a bonfire, or

the occasional rainy day, are going to be one of the best pieces to keep

around for autumn. Cropped sweatshirts can range from a simple, solid

color, to a retro-inspired statement piece. Get creative with your layers,

and keep them in stock as a go-to piece this season.

Slouchy jeans. The comfort promised by “boyfriend” jeans and “mom”

jeans alike has been deservedly embraced. These flattering, yet flexible,

jeans are on the slouchier side, making them easy for the transition not

only between seasons, but between day to night and work to weekend.

As they fit well with just about any selection of shoe, they’re easily taken

from sandal weather into boot weather.

Floral prints. Flowers will continue to color and brighten our wardrobes

well into the upcoming months. Keep your light, summery florals to

add a burst of romantic energy to your fall outfits. You’ll see florals stay

on boutique shelves in the form of patterned mini dresses, accessories,

printed suits and more.

Extra-strappy sandals. Keep your most fun, dramatic sandals in the

rotation this month, as they’re poised to become a fall evening essential.

Dressier sandals with far-reaching straps are set to take you into autumn

soirees, events and dinner parties.

NATURAL

HOW TO MAINTAIN THAT FRESH-FACED SANS-MAKEUP LOOK

By Jillian Chandler

With the busyness of our everyday lives, and the many activities and adventures we’re enjoying during the warmer months,

the last thing we want to worry about is putting on our makeup. How nice would it be to wash your face in the morning,

moisturize, put on a little lip gloss and head out the door, ready to embark on your day?

There’s no better time than the present to embrace your natural beauty. Rather than covering up your face with multiple products, spending

too much time contouring and enhancing, treat your skin to a health and beauty regimen to keep it glowing and looking great, without the

need to cover it up.

With the help of one of our beauty experts, who has years in the aesthetics field, we have compiled some simple ways you can keep your face

looking fresh and natural throughout the summer months and as you transition into the fall. It’s simple! Get ready to make your daily facial

routine one that is easy and not time invasive. And you’ll be ready to head out the door glowing! Take a read to help bring your skin-care and

beauty routine to the next level!

From what you put in your body to what you apply onto it greatly affects your skin, its appearance and glow. And it starts the moment you

wake up. After a long night’s rest, it is important to cleanse your face in order to remove excess oil and create a clean canvas for what you put

on your skin. Be sure to pat dry with a clean, dry towel.

Now that you’re fresh faced, the most important must-have product to

apply is sunscreen. You can eliminate makeup—the concealer, foundation

and other products—by choosing and applying a tinted sunscreen. “This

provides light coverage for a flawless and effortless look,” shares Bri

Williams, RN, BSN at Refined Aesthetics Med Spa in Sandpoint, Idaho.

“You can use all the best products in a 10-step skin-care regimen, but

if you aren’t protecting your skin, it is all for nothing,” she shares. “The

number one thing you can do for your skin is wear sunscreen. UV

exposure is the number one cause of premature aging and leads to skin

cancer. It is imperative that you protect your skin by applying SPF daily

and reapply throughout the day.”

She recommends finding a sunscreen that does double duty; one that not

only protects your skin from UV damage but also packs in antioxidants

to repair and rejuvenate the skin. “My favorite is Total Defense and

Repair by SkinMedica, and it is available in tinted and non-tinted.”

Apply a light coat of waterproof mascara, and a nude—or colored—lip

gloss, and you’ll be on your way.

You can touch up your look as needed throughout the day by

reapplying sunscreen in one step with a powdered SPF. Bri recommends

Sunforgettable Broad Spectrum SPF 30 by ColorScience.

At the end of the day, no matter how exhausted you might be, it is

important that you wash your face before bed. Doing this removes

pollutants and dirt, and of course any products you applied throughout

the day.

“Your skin cells turnover during the night to regenerate, and this process

is impaired if your face is not clean,” shares Bri. She adds that there are

a number of beneficial products that can be applied before bed (from

antioxidants, moisturizers and growth factors, to retinol, pigment

correctors and more), but at the very least be sure to use an antioxidant

to protect from the environmental exposures that are heightened in the

summer and a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.

You should schedule two days per week when you plan to exfoliate your

skin with a natural scrub. Exfoliating aids in a variety of areas, from

minimizing pores and fine lines, to preventing wrinkles, dark spots and

blemishes. Also opt to treat yourself once a week or every other week to

a natural face mask to maintain your skin’s health.

Other factors that many seem to forget is one’s lifestyle. It is imperative

to drink plenty of water to keep your body and skin hydrated.

Getting enough sleep (yes, eight hours is ideal) to allow your body

the time to repair and heal itself is also important. Exercise is a must,

aiding in releasing toxins of the body as you sweat. Eat foods high in

vitamins C, E and beta-carotene, which help to nourish your skin.

When you feel good about yourself, and your body is healthy inside, it

tends to manifest outward—especially through the appearance of your

face and skin.

Obviously, you will not see results overnight. But, as you continue to care

for your skin, following a simple daily routine that works best for you and

your lifestyle, you’ll soon find yourself with radiant skin, and you’ll have

no reason to want to cover it up.

Let your natural beauty shine, and embrace the face you were born with.

Style Tips Budget on a

LOOKING GLAM ON A PLAN

By Rachel Kelly

As we enjoy the last weeks of summer before the fall months arrive, here are six hard-to-beat tips for making your summer

wardrobe pop. And all on an unbeatable budget to boot.

1

Think Vintage.

You know those crazy thrift stores that are piled high with what some may

consider to be junk? Those places are the worst for looking for specific stuff,

but the best for finding something stylish. Thrift stores are where all the

vintage goodies are. Hidden under grandma’s matching tracksuits and the

moo moos are some original Star Wars custom tees, lace-up heeled boots,

retro skates and silk kimonos. The key is to keep your mind open. Don’t go

in for something specific—go in to discover. Don’t be afraid to jump into the

fray. You will come out with a pile of goodies for ten bucks.

I know, I know, sounds expensive, right? No, actually. Buy yourself something

cheap, just a simple tee for example. Then have it tailored. Most shirts, no

matter the company or expense, are made of pretty much the same materials.

The key is how they fit you. Simple tailor jobs cost $10 to $15, but the results

are one of a kind. Your tailored shirts, pants or dresses will automatically

become your favorite pieces, simply because they fit perfectly. Not only will

you look good, but you’ll feel comfortable. Comfort equates to confidence.

Simple tailoring is the way to go.

3

Buying

Color.

Buy

2

It.

Tailor

in solid colors is a well-kept style secret for the on-the-budget buyer.

Keeping it simple, in colors that amplify your natural positive features, allows

for mixing and matching. Favorites in solid colors, or muted styles, allow for

a do over with another outfit—no one can even tell that you are wearing it

again. Get your flash of color in your accessories, whether it be those impulsebuy

red boots or that Etsy jewelry piece. Key accessories dress up that simple

black jumper or everyday jeans into a multi-wear fashion-affair.

ENJOY A VIBRANT DOWNTOWN, RIVERWALK

AND WORLD-CLASS BEACHES

Charming Wilmington, North Carolina

By Marguerite Cleveland

Wilmington, North Carolina, is less known as a destination than its more famous Southern neighbors Charleston, South Carolina,

and Savannah, Georgia, and that is its charm. You won’t find the hordes of tourists; only those in the know about this vibrant

city on the banks of the Cape Fear River. Just a short drive from downtown Wilmington you will find some great beaches each

with its own unique vibe.

Where to Stay

Downtown has a variety of places to stay, but you can’t beat the Front Street Inn for its location. It is just a short walk to the shops, restaurants

and lively nightlife that abounds downtown. This cute Inn has onsite parking—a plus when downtown. There are a variety of rooms, and

some are on the smaller size, but there are public spaces you can utilize. This is an historic hotel, so you won’t have all the amenities of a large

chain hotel, but its charm and location more than make up for it. Breakfast is included in the morning.

Another option is the Hampton Inn Wilmington-University Area/Smith Creek Station, which has a great location that is close to both

downtown and the beaches. Rates include breakfast.

ONLY THOSE IN THE KNOW ABOUT THIS

VIBRANT CITY ON THE BANKS OF THE CAPE

FEAR RIVER.

Where to Eat

Wilmington has an eclectic dining scene, with a bounty of local seafood and

area farms providing fresh produce to the city’s restaurants. There is also the

Gullah Geechee influence from the Africans who were enslaved in the area. If you are new to Southern dining, make sure to try Pimento Cheese.

This yummy spread is now featured on many menus as a starter and is served with crisp lavash crackers. The local oysters are so good they even have

their own trail. Shrimp and Grits are a staple of low-country cuisine, and just about every restaurant you go to has its own recipe.

PinPoint Restaurant is located downtown and is the epitome of farm to table with the freshest bounty from local farmers, fishermen, oystermen and

shrimpers. Their names are on the menu. Speaking of menus, it changes every day to reflect what fresh ingredients are available. You will find a catch

of the day, chicken, beef and pork dishes, as well as a vegetarian entrée. Each one is prepared utilizing the fresh produce and herbs. On the menu

during my visit was hogfish, which must be spear caught. It eats crustaceans, so the meat has a sweet richness to it. Local Carrots was the name of

a shareable plate layered with purple carrot hummus, topped with a variety of carrots, herbs and seasoning. It is a unique dish and highlights the

types of food the chef makes.

The Pilot House is one of the oldest restaurants in the downtown area and has a huge local following. Located overlooking the Cape Fear River, it is

a lovely venue to dine at. The menu is heavy on fresh seafood and traditional Southern dishes, but the chef ’s not afraid to be creative. For example,

the Shrimp and Grits include collard greens, and to keep it from becoming a soupy mess, a fried grits cake is the base of this dish. It soaks up the jus

from the greens, and with the shrimp and other ingredients is such a unique take on this traditional Southern recipe.

Out on the boardwalk at Carolina Beach, make sure to stop at Britt’s Donuts. It has been a beach staple since 1939. The donuts are simple yeast donuts

with a glaze that is not too sweet. They sell so many that your order is hot from the fryer. So yummy! Also in this area is the Fat Pelican, one of the

cruise on the Henrietta is a great way to learn a bit

about the history of the area and some fun, local

anecdotes. A must stop is Cape Fear Rum Cakes on

Front Street. This family owned business is kicking

out some seriously good cakes. The rum keeps them

moist and helps preserve the cakes in a vacuum seal

for six months. There are three sizes available, and

the 5-ounce size is enough for one to two people and

makes a perfect gift. Nothing on the shelves is older

than a day or two because they are selling as fast as

they make them.

Plan to spend a full day out at the Fort Fisher area. In the morning,

do a beach hike along the Basin Trail with views of the ocean before it

gets too hot. Then tour the North Carolina Aquariums with its state-ofthe-art

exhibits. The otters are always popular, as well as the sharks in

the big tank. Don’t miss the outside trails with some beautiful artwork.

For lunch, either pack a picnic or dine at the café at the aquarium.

After lunch, explore the Fort Fisher Museum and learn about this Civil

War site. Then walk around the outside exhibits to see the remnants

of the fort.

A beach day is a must while visiting this area. Kure Beach is a quieter

beach popular with retirees and families. Wrightsville Beach is bustling

and more of a challenge to find parking. At Carolina Beach, you will find

the boardwalk with lots of shops and amusement park rides. There is

really something for everyone. Each beach also has fishing piers where

you can rent fishing equipment.

Insider Tip: Make sure to read the parking signs. The side street parking

by shops and restaurants is usually two hours and turns over more

frequently. The lots have all-day parking options. All parking is fee based.

You can download an app to make the process easier. Some parking

meters have swipers for credit cards.

Airlie Gardens is a beautifully landscaped coastal south garden with

67 acres of formal gardens and walking paths. The crown jewel of the

gardens is the Airlie Oak, which is a Southern Live Oak tree almost 500

years old. It sits amidst an expansive lawn surrounded by azalea bushes.

Pick up a self-guided walking tour brochure at the entrance. Explore

more than a dozen gardens including the Pergola, Minnie Evans Bottle

Chapel, a seasonal butterfly house and much more.

With its revitalized downtown, Riverwalk, and charming walkable

historic district, as well as the spectacular beaches, Wilmington is the

perfect vacation destination.

JALAPEÑO

POPPERS

WITH BACON

Recipe Courtesy of Tina VanDenHeuvel

You can follow Tina @madebetterforyou on Instagram

INGREDIENTS:

12 jalapeños

1 8-oz. package bacon, each piece cut into thirds

2 8-oz. blocks cream cheese, softened

6 oz. Mexican-blend cheese, shredded

2 jalapeños, seeded and diced

1 tbsp. cumin

2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

METHOD:

• Preheat your oven to 400˚F. Spray a broiler pan, or cover a

sheet pan with aluminum foil, and place a wire rack on top

with non-stick cooking spray. Set it aside for later.

• Start by prepping the jalapeños using a chef’s knife to cut off

the stems, and cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise. Then, use

a spoon to scrape out all the seeds and the white membrane

inside the pepper. You can discard the seeds once you’re done

or keep a few to add to the cream cheese mixture if you like it

extra hot.

• In a medium-size mixing bowl, mix together the cream

cheese, cheese, jalapeños and seasonings. Fill each jalapeño

with the mix.

• Cut bacon strips into thirds and lay a piece on top of the

cream cheese mix. Once you have filled and topped all the

jalapeños with bacon, place them in the oven and bake for 25

to 30 minutes, or until bacon is done.

• Let cool before serving. Enjoy!
