I

t seems as though, without

fail, that before we really

begin to embrace summer

and take advantage of all the

opportunities that come along with it, the

season abruptly comes to a bittersweet end.

As we slowly ease into fall, accompanied by

the cooler weather and autumn breeze, it is

important to be grateful for the memories

we created while at the same time knowing

there are many more to be made come the

new season.

As the hustle and bustle of the school year

begins, and the carefree days of summer are

but a distant memory, with a new season

upon us, it’s time to let go and gear up for

what’s to come. With an open mind and

heart, welcome the changes that are coming

our way and make the most of each and

every day.

As we send our children out the door to

embark on a new year of learning, may we

take this time to lay out plans for ourselves

when it comes to our own careers, families

and other vested interests. Goals and

aspirations are not just meant to be made at

the start of a new year, but at the beginning

of each new season.

Throughout the year, we are all growing,

learning, improving in our journeys. It’s

always good to reevaluate where you are,

what you have accomplished and what

your next steps look like. Let your children

inspire you to continue to learn, grow and

create. As we encourage our children to try

their best and be the best they can be, let’s

make sure that we take that advice ourselves.

Seasons change, as do our lives. As we say

farewell to summer and welcome fall, let’s

focus on what we can control and do our

part in making the best of what we can’t.

Get Bold!

LUXE ACCESSORIES AND RICH HUES REMAIN ON POINTE FOR DECORATING IN 2021

By Deann Hammer, Interior Designer

Deep rich hues such as teal, and iron ore grays, are hitting

the scene as favorite paint colors this year. These heavy

colors look gorgeous in any decorating mode. They can

be used in modern, craftsman, Danish or coastal design

themes with equal impact.

Bold colors shine either in a large open area such as a large living room

wall, or look just as special when used in powder rooms or accent

walls (ie: behind your master bed). The ceiling is also a great place to

add a super-rich color. I love painting a powder room ceiling to add an

unexpected pop of color to a home.

Make sure to buy high-quality paint so that the pigments are dense, and

you do not have to paint more than a few coats. I recommend Sherwin

Williams Emerald paint. It is also wipeable, which is a super bonus.

As we live in the Northwest, where in winter the light is low, it is

important to balance those dark paint colors with lighter fabrics that add

texture and balance to a room. A popular trend now is to upholster in

pastels. They look super luxe next to a richly colored wall and brighten up

a space. Rose, lavender, coral, light yellow and mint green are all on trend

as fabric choices for chairs, sofas and chaise lounges. If you are not brave

enough to do an entire piece in these colors, you can opt for a neutral

fabric and bring in pastels with pillows, rugs, art and throws.

Reflective metal accessories such as gold or copper add shine. Marble is

also a wonderful natural product found in trays, vases and lamps, and

is timeless and sleek. Be careful not to accessorize in any one material

alone. It is important to add a touch of wood, a little stone, some metal

and glass. It is a balancing act. The softness of pampas grass in a large urn

in a corner or a live tree will help create drama.

I find, when I focus on the details, a project transforms from average

to spectacular. I typically reach for architecturally interesting mirrors in

guest baths where functionality isn’t the focus (ie: applying makeup), and

if you buy a lamp, make it a great one! Don’t settle for the inexpensive,

generic Target or Home Goods lamps. Lamps are art and should be

treated as such. A true test of a good lamp is the actual weight of the

item. It should have some heft to it and not be easy to topple over. A lamp

should have a three-way switch, and the shade should be of a quality

material, not stark white and easily dentable.

Rose, lavender, coral, light yellow and mint

green are all on trend as fabric choices for

chairs, sofas and chaise lounges.

Grouping vases, candles or other trinkets together and

buying art that tells a story or has a history is also a way to

add richness to a room and make it look unique.

Photographs are wonderful but are best in black and white

and grouped in coordinating frames. Keep it simple—and go

for quality. Avoid photo frames that are ultra-busy or have

sayings all over them and reek of kitschy farmhouse themes.

And a shoutout to all of you technology lovers: You should

never see a television or lamp cord. Hire a contractor to

bury TV cables in the wall, or tuck them behind a basket

or large vase. Less is more, as they say, and chords to digital

devices are distracting to the eye and make a space feel like a

dorm room.

The theme for 2021 is go big, or go home. Get bold! And, if

in doubt, hire an interior designer to help you optimize your

own special look. Broadway Design is always just a call away.


WHAT ARE YOU

FOR?

Fall is a time to reflect on growth

and appreciate success

By Trish Buzzone

Thinking Partner, Executive Director

The John Maxwell Team

Fall is my favorite season, and for a lot of

reasons. You begin to feel the change in

the air, see it in the color of the leaves,

the shade of the bark on the trees. There’s a

celebratory energy, an anticipation of new

things, good things to come. Harvest festivals

recall the joy of reaping the benefits of a year

of hard work that will sustain us for the year

to come. Before you know it, Thanksgiving

kicks off the holiday season and a heightened

awareness of what we have to give and what we

have received.

For me, this season of newness and celebration

is also an opportunity to look back at the

year leading up to now, to reflect on growth

and appreciate success. Fall is also a time of

anticipation, when I begin to plan for the

coming year and to take action toward those

goals. In making those plans and anticipating

those successes, one question is paramount in

my mind: “What am I for?”

The question is not about likes and dislikes,

though those preferences may factor into my

answers. This is about asking myself what do

I want to be known for and what I am going

to do to make that happen; it’s about clearly

defining my purpose and working in a way that

communicates that purpose to others in what

I say and do.

When we are intentional about anticipating

and planning based on how we answer this

question, we grow in our awareness of the

actions to take and the resources necessary to

live our vision. Others around us pick up on

this awareness too. Like-minded people come

alongside to work with us, while mentors and

thinking partners help us see more clearly as

we move forward.

Beginning this process in the fall—thinking,

planning, prioritizing, anticipating and

acting—sets us up for success throughout the

following year. Investing this time inspires and

energizes, creating momentum that builds

through the end of the year and continues into

the new year.

Our answers to this question become what Jeff

Henderson calls powerful “distractionators,”

or distraction assassinators. We all know

how wonderfully distracting the last several

weeks of the year are. Filled with parties and

family and fun, gifts and excitement, so many

incredible things that pull us away. Then,

suddenly, we see December 31 is just a few

days away, and the impulse is to try to cram

all the planning into a few days, or, if we start

a few weeks sooner, try to work around parties

and concerts and important social times with

family and friends. We end up pulled in too

many directions, wanting to enjoy the holidays

while knowing we need to be focused on our

first quarter goals. Clarity suffers, focus suffers,

and we hunker down as winter sets in, feeling

like we’re already falling behind.

By starting this process in the fall, I give myself

the gift of time. I’m more focused, more

effective and better prepared. As a result, I’m

able to maintain my focus and add value to

myself and others as the holidays draw near.

So, as we enter this wonderful, hopeful and

highly anticipated autumn season, this is my

question for you: “What are you for?” What do

you want to be known for, and why? What does

that look like, feel like and sound like? Being

intentional about answering those questions

now will inspire and energize you as we begin

to wrap up 2021 and move into 2022.

I would love to hear your answers to “What are

you for?” Share them with me at: TrishBuzzone.

PRODUCTIONS RETURN TO THE PEARL

THE LOCAL, COMPLETELY VOLUNTEER-RUN THEATER WELCOMES LIVE

ENTERTAINMENT TO THEIR FALL SCHEDULE

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

"OUR

MISSION IS

SUPPORTING

ART."

A

downtown treasure, the Pearl Theater boasts

a uniquely beautiful location that has held

space for artists of all kinds. Known for its

celebration of the performing arts within an intimate

historic setting, the nonprofit theater's mission has

always been to promote, develop and showcase talent

within the community.

This fall, the Pearl looks forward to entertainment

returning to their schedule, including the Nancy

Genys and Julie McCleish's Talent Team, Social

Dancing, and Children's Choir, all starting this

month. It was a long road through the pandemic to

reopen their doors; especially for a theater operated

entirely by volunteers.

“Everything is done by unpaid volunteers, except the

art itself,” said Board of Directors Treasurer Jessica

Tingley. “Our mission is supporting art, and we

do that by ensuring the artists who perform on our

stage are compensated fairly. It takes many hours

of behind-the-scenes work to make productions

happen, from planning to cleaning and setting up

the theater, to working on publicity, researching and

writing contracts, and coordinating everything from

schedules to sleeping arrangements.”

At 137 years old, the maintenance often required by

the theater is often completed by its volunteers.

“Our most committed volunteers have put in well over

1,000 hours of time," Tingley shared. "Even when the

Pearl was closed, the board averaged between five and

10 hours a week researching grants, brainstorming

ideas and working on rescheduling a year's worth of

canceled shows.”

Even the Pearl’s board members and committee

heads are all unpaid; however, its light budget is no

reflection of the hard work that goes into coordinating

the theater's productions and services.

The work starts with finding, booking and

coordinating the production's talents and

sponsorships. After an act is booked, the efforts shift

to publicity: finding sponsors, and promoting the

show with poster designs and social media content.

Then, the theater must be set up to maximize its space

and provide guests the best possible experience, with

setup details dependent on each unique production.

“Our capacity is fairly small at 150, so if we've sold

50 tickets, we don't want the floor crowded with

unnecessary seating,” Tingley said. “If we're planning

a dinner and a movie, it's reorganized for all table

seating, with the exception of the upstairs balcony.

But if we're expecting a more dance-friendly band, the

main floor is arranged so that there is plenty of room

to kick up your heels."

The theater is home to a small commercial kitchen. Its

café menu includes beer and wine, and is tailored to

specific shows.

18

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


Like its size, the Pearl's operating budget

is small—making it highly dependent on

community support and donations.

Before the pandemic, donations were most

often gathered through membership dues or

at regularly scheduled free events like open

mic nights, movie nights, performers’ circles

and more. During the pandemic, its team got

creative to help keep donations alive. “In the

last year and a half, we’ve seen core supporters

and volunteers move away and, sadly, pass

away, so it’s been tough on all levels,” Tingley

shared of the pandemic's impact on the Pearl.

During their COVID closures, they put on a

production called Floats, Fragments, Poems and

(un)Documents with local artist Paul Bonnell.

The presentation explored the intersections of

time, creativity, community and project work,

combining artifacts, documents, and personal

and collective histories in its exploration, and

became one of the Pearl's most successful

programs to date, with more than 1,500 views.

“We would have loved to do more of that but

lacked the resources and volunteers to do it on

a more regular basis,” Tingley said.

Now, with live entertainment returning to

the schedule, including open mic nights and

holiday productions, there’s also the highly

anticipated Paul Rawlings play, Swan Song,

which will feature half a dozen talented local

actors and is set to debut October 29. They

hope for the return of the always popular dayafter-Thanksgiving

concert, and most of all

hope to see their doors stay open to allow these

productions to come to life, Tingley said.

“We have no endowment, no savings, just a

handful of really committed volunteers who

have put in their own money to keep the

theater afloat until it finds traction to get back

to being self-sufficient again,” she shared.

Today, committed volunteers are Pearl Theater's

biggest need, particularly volunteers with

experience writing grants. Those interested

can visit ThePearlTheater.org/volunteers.

Volunteers will have the unique opportunity to

see art come to life within a beautiful, historic

downtown space. “The building itself is a

treasure," Tingley said. "The opportunities for

multi-use are there. We hope people discover

how magical of a place it can be!”

family’s quest for all-natural living upon their move to a North

Idaho ranch. Homemade Revelation, a guide to growing food from

scratch and finding success as a homesteader, was designed to share her

“revelations” of what true, from-scratch cooking really means.

Hanner’s popular website is a wealth of information, from recipes to

money-saving tricks. Now a mother of six, Hanner has expanded on

her website’s success to add a new revelation: an agriculture-based

homeschooling curriculum.

Build Your Own Homestead was designed to help children learn how to

take ownership in providing food for their families. The nine-unit, 200-

page curriculum teaches kids about where food comes from—including

a better understanding of options found at the grocery store, how to tend

a garden, and how to tend to livestock.

The creation of the program was inspired by Hanner’s own experiences.

When she started preparing to homeschool her kids, she struggled to

find the learning materials she was looking for.

“After being an agriculture major, spending most of my life in ranching

and volunteering with 4-H, I was very disappointed to not find any

complete agriculture homeschool curriculums for my kids,” Hanner

shared. “I pieced together information, worksheets, and hands-on

learning on our farm, but for families that want an all-in-one curriculum

or that are newer to homesteading themselves, there is very little

out there.”

Hanner recognized a need she could fill, and a niche she could adopt

within her online business. Drawing on her agricultural expertise and

experience, plus outside research on the topics she was less familiar with,

Hanner created the Build Your Own Homestead program.

Designed for students aged Pre-K to grades three and four, each unit in

the program contains an original story, identification activities, multiple

crafts and projects, and more, totaling 36 weeks of curriculum.

Hanner has received ample positive feedback in response to her endeavor.

“Everyone that has seen my posts on social media has been really

excited for this niche to be filled,” she said. “And once I have print copies

available—I should have a good stock by September 1—locals can buy

the curriculum from me directly without having to pay for shipping.”

Building on that momentum, she plans to write the next level of the

program within the coming year for fifth- to eighth-grade students. She

will attend the Homesteaders of America Conference in Virginia this

October to conduct more market research to support the next level of

her program.

Without question, Hanner believes in the value and necessity of a

program like Build Your Own Homestead. “I think our society (but

not so much our community in Bonners Ferry) is very separated and

detached from where our food comes from,” Hanner shared. “Even

children that grow up on farms don’t always have ownership in their

family’s endeavors. This curriculum has excited my 4-year-old enough to

have him at the barn every night with his brothers, milking, chores and

gathering the eggs on his own.”

Because she believes in the curriculum, she has released her

homeschooling program at a reasonable price to ensure it stays

accessible for students and families. Hanner’s purpose is clear: “I want

to see children learn about small-scale farming and have a better

understanding of where their food comes from.”

NEW YEAR, NEW ROLE

Badger volleyball coach moves up from JV

by COLIN ANDERSON

“I WANT THE GIRLS TO FOCUS ON EACH

OTHER AND NOT THEMSELVES. I WANT

THEM TO LOOK FOR WAYS TO ENCOURAGE

ONE ANOTHER, SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER

AND BUILD ONE ANOTHER UP—ON AND

OFF THE COURT.”

There will be a new voice in the locker room this fall for Badger

volleyball players, but it won’t be an unfamiliar one. Cynthia

Cummings coached the junior varsity squad last season and,

during the off-season, was named head coach at the varsity level. “I’ve

always had a desire to coach but have been raising a family for the last 18

years,” she explained. “It’s such a blessing to finally be able to coach the

sport I love, and my family is so supportive.”

Cynthia got started with volleyball in middle school while growing up

in Texas. She played all through high school, eventually landing a spot

on the team at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. Though

a knee injury ended her career prematurely, her passion for the game

never waned.

With only four returning varsity players off of last year’s squad, Cynthia

knows she has a challenge incorporating a younger team into the top levels

of competition. Players took part in camp this summer that introduced

them to a new way of looking at the sport, and Cynthia says the team was

very receptive to the changes. “I’m most excited for the fresh start this

young team will have and their desire to go to State this year,” she said.

It can take some time to build the foundation of a consistently competitive

program, but Cynthia already has her goals in place for herself, her

players, and the Badger volleyball program. “I want to develop a

volleyball program that utilizes more strength training, conditioning,

and emphasizes nutrition and rest. I’d like to develop a mindset for a

healthy lifestyle on and off the volleyball court that will benefit them in

the future as well.”

As for her personal goals, Cynthia wants to emphasize building

relationships with players and emphasize key elements that go beyond

volleyball such as integrity, work ethic, respect and positive attitude.

Cynthia knows most of these girls will only play in high school, and

wants them to love the sport and enjoy it while they are in it. The team

will be spending a lot of time together, so teammates will become like

family; a family that is a part of a bigger community.

“Their identity cannot be found in volleyball, because it could end in

an instant. Their priorities should be their personal faith, their families

and friends, their community and their academics and jobs. I’m just so

blessed to be able to come alongside them to support them in furthering

their volleyball skills and be a part of the team.”

most technologically advanced submarines sure,” he said. Netzer was eventually director of

ever created, and she will carry the name USS the facility up until retiring in 2007.

IDAHO SSN 799.

It’s a once-in-a-century celebration for

residents of the Gem State. While there have

been other naval vessels that carry the name

Boise (currently in service), Pocatello, and Twin

Falls, this is the first naval vessel to carry the

state’s namesake since the USS IDAHO BB42, a

New Mexico Class battleship built in 1919 that

saw extensive action during World War II and

was eventually decommissioned in 1946. While

Idahoans can be proud to see such a beautiful

new vessel carry the state’s namesake, they can

be equally prideful that an integral part of its

technology was developed within the state.

While originally a naval training station

during World War II, soon after it became

an ideal research and development location

for submarines. Here, large-scale submarine

models and state-of-the-art facilities support a

wide variety of research and technology ranging

from submarine propulsion development to the

calibration of full-scale acoustic transducers.

Test ranges, and acoustic test facilities utilized

in conducting research, development, test

and evaluation of submarine acoustic stealth

technology and propulsion, are conducted

here, according to a naval release. Those tests

have helped develop the technology found in

subs across the fleet including the Virginia

Class, of which the USS IDAHO will fall under.

The vessel, which is currently under

construction in Connecticut, is scheduled to

be christened sometime during the summer of

2022 and will be commissioned into the naval

fleet in 2023. Netzer is the North Regional

Chair of the USS Idaho Commissioning

Committee. The committee’s vision is: To Bring

together the people of the great State of Idaho

and the Officers and Crew of the USS IDAHO to

celebrate in exemplary fashion the extraordinary

honor of having a ship of the line named for

the state. To create a bond between the people

of Idaho and the sailors of the submarine that

will last throughout the life of the ship and

beyond. And, to recognize with great honor,

the men and women that have served and will

serve throughout the history of the land we now

call Idaho.

“We want to showcase Idaho to the Navy, and

the Navy to Idaho,” said Netzer.

That showcasing is already underway, as

many members of the chain of command of

the submarine have already been identified.

These include Commanding Officer Nicholas

Meyers, Executive Officer Lieutenant

Commander Rene Medrano, and Chief of

the Boat Master, Chief David Pope III. These

officers and their families, as well as several

future crew members, have traveled to the Gem

State to get a firsthand look at its people and

culture. The first couple of visits were to Boise

and Southern Idaho, where they met Governor

Little and got to travel to several different

events and activities. “They took in a Boise

Hawks baseball game, rode in a parade, toured

the Idaho National Laboratory, and saw Craters

of the Moon,” explained retired Colonial and

Commissioning Committee Public Affairs

Officer Tim Marsano. “The events are really

meant to create a bond between the sailors on

the sea that will be sailing under our namesake

and the people of our state.”

Another crew visit is just around the corner,

as several enlisted sailors will be heading

to Moscow during University of Idaho’s

homecoming week. They’ll get a chance to take

in the football game, ride in the homecoming

parade, and do some meet and greets while

A big part of the commissioning committee’s mission is to not just

introduce the crew to the state but to create lasting bonds with its

citizens and have the ship’s interior carry representations of Idaho as

well. “We will look to outfit the ship with artwork and paintings of the

Sawtooths, and Lake Pend Oreille, have tabletops specific to the state

of Idaho, and bring in a few creature comforts that are Idaho specific,”

said Marsano.

The vessel is on track to be completed in 2022. A keel laying ceremony

was performed at 10:30am, August 24, 2020, at the Quonset Point Facility

of General Dynamics Electric Boat in North Kingston, Rhode Island. The

keel laying of a ship is a time-honored Navy tradition. In the days of

wooden ships, the start of construction was marked by the laying of the

keel—the backbone of the vessel. Shipbuilders and sailors refer to the

bottom centerline of the submarine as the keel.

Next up will be the ship’s christening, where the sponsor bestows the

ship’s name while smashing the bottle against the bow of the ship. Finally,

the commissioning ceremony is one of the most important. The ship is

accepted by the United States Navy and becomes part of the active Navy

Fleet. When the sponsor says, “Man Our Ship and Bring Her to Life,” and

the crew boards the ship, all present rejoice and break out in thunderous

applause. It is a very patriotic and proud moment for all.

The USS IDAHO will come in at an approximate cost of $2.6 billion

and will be in service to the Navy for decades. Its nuclear-powered

propulsion and acoustic stealth capabilities are tied directly to research

and development done both in Bayview and at the Idaho National Lab.

It will have special features to host the missions of Navy SEALs and will

carry an armament of tomahawk missiles and torpedoes, ready to defend

itself and the nation.

The commissioning committee invites all of Idaho to enjoy this oncein-a-lifetime

event. You can visit USSIdahoCommittee.org and click

“Join Now” to receive the newsletter and latest updates. The anticipation,

especially amongst those who have previously served, is especially high,

and the committee hopes that all of Idaho recognizes what a special time

they have before them. “Most think of us as a landlocked state, but we

have a great naval history here. This is an opportunity for our citizens

to really get to understand that history and be a part of its future,”

said Marsano.

Local grocer offers brand-new name-brand items, all at a steal

By Jillian Chanlder

Grocery Outlet opened to the excitement of the

Bonners Ferry community in late March 2020. After

more than a year serving the shopping needs of our

residents—at a bargain—owners Haley McQueen and Blake

Bevans continue their goal of saving their customers money.

Offering groceries, fresh produce, beer and wine, home

goods, beauty and wellness items, and organic products,

all at deeply discounted prices, they are in the business of

offering low prices and unique items. “We have a core base

of everyday items in stock, but what makes us unique is the

‘treasure hunt’ items that change weekly,” says Haley, adding

that she truly finds enjoyment when ordering all the products

to stock the store. “It’s like Christmas for me when I see new

and exciting items that the customers will want or asked for,”

she smiles. Once the items are out on the floor, she loves

seeing the customers’ excitement when finding their favorite

items, all at a great savings.

Haley joined Grocery Outlet as a cashier back in 2010—her

very first job. Over the years, she enjoyed the atmosphere and

customers, and working side by side with the operators who

encouraged her to pursue the possibility of owning her own

store one day. “2016 is when I started the journey of learning

and preparing to own a store,” she shares. “As an owner/

operator, we get the independence to make decisions on how

to improve the store and how to best serve the customers.”

Blake partnered with Haley that same year to help support

her in the process of securing a store.

It is Haley’s passion and excitement for everything "grocery"

that has kept her motivated throughout the entire process.

Sharing her knowledge with employees, seeing them grow

and learn new skills is something she finds very rewarding.

“Without the support from our hardworking team, the store

would not exist,” acknowledges Haley. “All of our staff makes

sure, when we open the doors, our customers have a friendly

and well-stocked store to shop.”

For the past 75 years, Grocery Outlet takes pride in its ability

to create relationships with manufacturers, securing product

at a lower price, with the savings passed on to the customer.

Currently, there are 400 locations across Idaho, Oregon,

Washington, California, Nevada, Arizona and Pennsylvania.

“Each location is individually owned and operated to

help serve the needs within each community,” says Haley.

“Customer service is a huge priority in our daily operations.

We want customers to feel welcome and enjoy their time in

30

the store. Being able to interact with the customers on a personal level on a daily basis

keeps us motivated and encouraged to continue to offer the best service we can.”

Over the past year and a half, Haley and Blake have enjoyed meeting everyone in town,

and the opportunity to connect with other business owners as well as their customers.

It is the people they appreciate most about the Bonners Ferry Community.

Blake and Haley have found a great way to give back to the community that’s embraced

them and their business. During the month of July, each Grocery Outlet employee

participates in a fundraiser at the store to help collect funds and food donations for the

local community food bank—Community Action Program (C.A.P.). “We have raised

$10,000 in monetary and food donations over the last two years,” Haley says proudly.

“We recently participated in the Wine Walk and had a wonderful time. We hope more

opportunities will arise in the future. We love Bonners Ferry!”

It’s time to save! Grocery Outlet is open for your shopping needs 7am to 9pm daily.

PICKLEBALL GROWS IN

POPULARITY

FIND OUT THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION’S

FASTEST GROWING SPORT

BY RACHEL KELLY

no mystery why pickleball is the fastest growing

sport in the nation. The people are welcoming, the

game is fun to play, and it’s suitable for all ages and

“It’s

ability levels,” says 5.0+ pro-rated pickleball player

Bryce Ogren. It may be no mystery as to why pickleball has

exploded across the nation, but most people don’t know that

pickleball was invented right here in the United States, next door

in Washington state by a family on Bainbridge Island.

The official story is that Joel Pritchard, William Bell and Barney

McCallum invented pickleball in 1965. If put simply, they

developed the game over time for their families’ entertainment.

Joel Pritchard and his wife had an especially invested interest.

However, it also sounds like their children may have had as much

a hand in its invention as the adults. The unofficial story goes

that while the adults conversed, the kids were handed a wiffle

ball and told to have fun outside. The kids didn’t come back, and

the adults heard their kids actually having a blast outside on the

badminton court. So, they joined in, and developed the game

from there.

There’s also a version of the story where the adults came home

from golf to find their kids restless and bored, so they set out

to invent a game that would entertain them throughout the

summer. That may be true of course; the game most likely

did entertain the kids (and the whole family) throughout the

summer. The game was so successful in entertaining the three

families, that it soon spread to everyone they knew. Eventually

the net was lowered, the rackets exchanged for paddles, and the

rules developed to be close to what they are today.

At first, in the ‘60s, pickleball was generally only played by the

families who had developed the game. Very soon after though,

this was not the case. Their friends joined in, their friend’s

friends joined in. Then the city. Then the state. It was so fun that

it soon spread far and wide. It only took a few years, but the

Pritchard family knew they were on to something. It was then

that they and their friends formed Pickleball Inc. In the 1970s,

newspapers got wind of its growth and spread the word of the

new sport. Since the game can be played on virtually any hard

surface, the materials are inexpensive, and the rules simple, it is

easy to pick up. So once the word spread, so did the curiosity.

Players everywhere were joining in, at first just to satisfy their

curiosity and then because they were having fun.

By 1984, interest had progressed so much that the USA

Pickleball Association (USAPA) was established. It was during

this time that an official rule book was developed and circulated.

In 2008, pickleball was adopted into the Senior Games, which

are played nationally. In 2009, the USAPA held the National

Pickleball Tournament with 400 registrants. By 2017, that same

tournament registered 1,300 players. Today, pickleball has a pro

rating system and various leagues.

The paddle of the game went through a similar evolution.

Originally, the Pritchard family was using ping pong paddles.

Using a jigsaw, they made bigger paddles. These new paddles

were easier to hit the wiffle with. They also reinforced the

handle, making it easier to grip. Eventually, the paddles were

incorporated with a honeycomb construction, making the

paddle lighter. As the game progressed in popularity through the

‘70s and ‘80s, fiberglass and Nomex honeycomb paddles were

popular. Today, wood and honeycomb materials are still used to

make paddles. But other materials, such as Polymer composite

and graphite, are also popular.

The name is a bit odd though: Why pickleball? While a good crisp

pickle does sound good right now, there are no pickles required

in the playing. There’s a rumor that’s gone around (possibly

started by some far away journalist …) that the game was named

32

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL 33


after the family dog: Pickles. Apparently Pickles

liked to pick up the ball when it was dead at the

net, no doubt from a desire to be involved. While

this version is cute and funny, it’s not the real story.

Pickles the dog was named after the game, not the

other way around.

The real, albeit less fun, story has to do with Joan

Pritchard, who had some experience with rowing.

There’s a term in crew called a “pickle boat.” It’s

usually the slowest boat in the race because it’s

derived from rowers leftover from all the other

teams. Just as a pickle boat picks and chooses from

various teams and goes a bit slower, so pickleball

picks and chooses its rules from various sports.

The result is a game that’s a little slower—but just

as much fun. Regardless of the origin, the game

needed a zany name. And pickleball stuck. And

really, if you think about it, what about all these

other racquet sports and their names? Tennis?

What does that even mean?

Perhaps the reason why pickleball is so accessible

is because it’s a family game developed by a family.

If the whole family is going to play, it not only has

to be fun and engaging, but adaptive. Surprisingly

the game is not reserved for just families, as it

can be quite the workout. Because the game was

created to be adaptive and fun, it’s also challenging

and very competitive at certain levels. So much so

that there are tournaments and pro leagues across

the nation.

“It’s a common misconception that pickleball is

very slow and only for the older crowd,” says Ogren,

an elite gold medal 5.0 pickleball pro in both

singles and doubles. “When played at the higher

skill levels, it requires great overall athleticism,

quickness, agility, hand-eye coordination, quick

reflexes and sound decision making.” Pickleball

is making money, winning sponsorships (Selkirk

being one of the largest) and creating a name for

itself. Because the game can be both played slowly

and quickly, most P.E. classes have even picked up

the sport. All skill levels, even pro-level players,

are able to develop their skill and participate.

Regardless, that’s quite the growth in a relatively

short amount of time. Perhaps pickleball is fated

for the Olympics one of these days? Who knows?

Pickleball is a racquet (or paddle) sport derived

from rules from other netted sports, but what

is pickleball? It’s kind of like tennis. Maybe like

badminton. All the best things about racquet and

net sports and none of the bad were adopted and

adapted to the game. The result is just plain fun.

The server starts the game and serves the wiffle

ball, underhand, over the net and diagonally

across the court. Like tennis, it must land within

the acceptable perimeter so that the receiver has

a chance to get it. They then return the wiffle,

underhand, and the opposing side volleys back and

forth. However, upon the serve, the receiver must

allow the ball to bounce before returning. The

ball must bounce at least once on each side of the

court before it is allowed to be returned without

bouncing. This prevents players from rushing

the net too soon, which eliminates the server

advantage. This results in a longer play time. Once

a side makes a fault, and misses the wiffle, then that

side loses that point and passes the wiffle ball to the

opposing team to serve.

Points can only be made on a serve, for which

there is only one qualifying try. If there are two

team members, if the first server serves a faulty

serve, they pass the wiffle to their teammate, who

also has a chance to make a qualifying serve. If

both serves are at fault, the wiffle ball passes to

the opposing team. At no point in the game is a

player allowed to hit the wiffle above waist level,

or with the paddle at an upward angle. It must be

hit underhand and below the waist. Which means

that the ball can be tipped just over the net, but not

slammed downward.

These rules allow for a longer playing time,

meaning that it’s more fun. Especially if your

skills are moderate. The competition is retained,

however. That means, upon learning pickleball,

a player can still participate and have fun. Even

though they might be losing, or their skill isn’t “up

to par.”

“Pickleball is easier to learn and play than tennis. It

allows a complete beginner to learn the basics and

feel successful early on. That’s one of the reasons

why people keep coming back for more,” says

Ogren. The game is a win-win! As players progress,

they are met with higher and higher rewards, and

even at lower levels, players are successful. Perhaps

this explains why the game is most often played

in teams of two per team, rather than singles. It’s

naturally a fun group game.

Today, the game is still evolving to allow for

increased access, and to eliminate needless rules

that get in the way of playing longer. Anything that

gets in the way of the fun is out! This means that

the rules are sometimes adjusted. For example,

36

pickleball now allows balls that have tipped the

net during a serve to still be playable. In tennis

this is called a “let” and is not allowed on a serve,

even if the tennis ball lands in the acceptable

space after tipping. “Lets” are allowed in the

game play, but not for serves. Pickleball allows

the ball to tip the net at any time, which, if

you’ve ever delivered a stellar serve during

tennis only to have it be “let,” this is quite

a relief.

Pickleball also just recently started allowing

the server to drop the ball, bouncing it on the

ground, before serving it. As long as the rules

for serves and paddle height are not broken,

then the serve is acceptable for play. The ability

to throw the ball in the air, and then get it

over the net, is often the result of established

muscle memory. While throwing the ball in the

air usually means a quicker serve, there is no

reason for requiring that type of serve from the

beginning. This is just one of those rules that

allows entrance for all skill levels, as the serve

is often the most difficult part of a net and

racquet sport to master.

As stated above, pickleball is the fastest

growing sport in the United States. But Canada

also seems to be picking up the sport. Just as we

have pickleball venues in every state, Canada

has venues in every province. The game is fun,

simple, accessible and competitive. All the

good and none of the bad, perfect for families

and great for pro players. Rules are changing

to allow for more access, and as it continues to

spread those rules will continue to be relatively

flexible. When it comes to fun, there’s really

no hindrance!

As to where pickleball will go next? Who

knows! From Washington to New York, from

The United States to Canada, there really are no

limits as to where pickleball will go.

The Importance of Mammography

EARLY DETECTION MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE

by AMBER ALLEN, RT (R)(M), BOUNDARY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL

The World Health Organization made a startling announcement at

the beginning of 2021 stating that breast cancer has become the

world's most commonly diagnosed cancer, surpassing lung cancer.

The World Health Organization estimates that over 280,000 new cases will

be detected within the year 2021.

Although one in eight women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer, there

is good news! The survival rate is very high with early detection. Early

detection is credited to advancements in imaging technology, including

digital breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography), allowing radiologists to

see even the smallest amount of cancer much earlier than before. The goal

is to catch cancer at its earliest stages to provide the best outcome possible.

More than 3,000 women fall into the recommended screening age range

(40 to 75), yet Boundary County still lags behind the rest of the state in

the number of annual breast cancer screenings. Women are commonly

under the misunderstanding that if they do not have a family history

of breast cancer, then they are not at risk. However, according to

BreastCancer.org, less than 15 percent of women diagnosed with breast

cancer have a family history.

Another misconception is that women without insurance believe that

they cannot afford to have their annual screening mammogram; however,

Panhandle Health offers vouchers for the cost of the mammogram to those

who qualify. According to the American College of Radiology, women at

average risk for breast cancer should begin

screening mammograms at the age of 40,

which may be younger than many think.

However, according to BreastCancer.org, one

in six breast cancer cases occurs in women

between the ages of 40 and 49.

As a radiologic technologist specializing in

mammography, Amber Allen, RT (R)(M)

often hears from women coming in for their

mammograms that they are terrified of the

machine. There are many jokes about the

process of getting a mammogram, and none

of them paint a realistic or flattering picture.

However, many women believe that these are

facts, and their fears stop them from coming

in to do this exam. In reality, the exam is

typically far quicker and causes far less

discomfort than women expect. When they

leave, they often note that the exam wasn't as

bad as they expected.

In some situations, the radiologist may

request additional X-rays or diagnostic

breast ultrasounds. 3D mammography

exams are the gold standard for imaging of

the breast; however, breast ultrasounds can

usually focus on a targeted area seen on the

mammogram. Patients can schedule followup

testing at Boundary Community Hospital

for diagnostic mammography and ultrasound

rather than going out of county for testing.

These exams are scheduled on either Tuesdays

or Fridays and typically occur the following

week after your mammogram. Both the

mammographer and ultrasound technician at

Boundary Community Hospital understand

the immense stress women feel during this

process. Boundary Community Hospital's

staff do their best to reschedule patients for

their follow-up as quickly as possible to limit

a patient's wait time.

Mammography appointments are available

Monday, Tuesday and Friday, while ultrasound

appointments are available on Tuesday and

Friday through the Outpatient Services at

Boundary Community Hospital and can be

scheduled by calling 208.267.3141 ext. 4258.

mammogram. Early detection may save

your life.

GETTING BACK INTO A

routine

MAKING YOUR SCHEDULE

WORK FOR YOU

by RACHEL KELLY

42

BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL


Getting a 5-year-old to put on their socks often feels like

negotiating a hostage situation. First you warn them

that they’ll be leaving in an hour. Thirty minutes before

it’s time to leave, you call out an announcement, “Time to get

your socks on!” Ten minutes before go time you start pleading.

They respond by showing you their playdough creation. Then

you bring them their socks. This upsets them. Finally, you’re in

the car, and they’ve forgotten to bring their favorite toy. This is

also upsetting. So you promise them all the playdough. The deal

is struck, and off you go.

In a busy family, getting anything done usually requires bribery

and/or grand larceny. Really though! A family’s needs are wide

and varied. Having an endless list of “to-dos” just means that

you’re out and about, having fun. To help parents and kids get

through the day, sometimes it helps to create a family schedule.

Even if the kids aren’t old enough to stay up to par with the

current times, it helps if parents are at least on the same page.

Here are some versatile tips for designing a schedule that works

for your family.

First and foremost, it’s important to make that schedule visible

to everyone. For parents and older kids, this could mean using

a shared calendar app, where each family member can add

on activities as well as see other activities planned. For little

ones, this could be something simple like a sticker chart. Each

part of the daily schedule that they participate in gets them a

sticker, with small prizes at the end of the week. If you need

something that can be seen throughout the day, by anyone who

passes by, you could put in something big and permanent—

like a chalkboard in the kitchen or hallway, where you list the

day with adjoining meals and activities. Whatever it is, make

it visible. Make it accessible. Make it interactive. In this way,

everyone is heard.

Making a very interactive and dynamic schedule allows for

needs to be consolidated. When everyone knows where they

need to go, and they can see where everyone else is going, they

can plan their activities around what is already being done. If

AND DYNAMIC

CONSOLIDATED.

one parent is going to work, they might drop off the kiddos to school. If

another parent needs to hedge in a workout, they might plan to do that

at the same time that the kids have swim practice. If the kids have swim

practice, make sure they go at the same time. Or if one has swim, make

sure that the other has their sport close by near the same time. Mastering

the art of consolidating needs often means that everyone is happy and

busy at the same time, leaving more room for the in-between. Of course,

this also means that you may have to say no to what doesn’t fit into what

your family deems a priority. As you develop a family schedule, keep

those family goals in mind. Consolidate them. Then don’t be afraid to

say no to what doesn’t fit into those goals. No sense in killing yourself

over what you don’t care about.

Third, and last, there’s the issue of rest—which should be a part of

every family schedule. Rest is essential to everyone’s survival, even

for kids who seem to have endless energy. The reality is that unless a

family rests together, there will always be one person (you) who is left

without a moment to breathe. It’s a real part of self-care, something that

our American schedule often doesn’t adopt. A good schedule for the

busy family means scheduling in a collective break. Rest can mean a lot

of things. It could mean a delegated siesta (nap) or quiet time, where

everyone does something that they feel like doing. It could mean a

slowing down period in the evenings. It could mean one day of the week

where nothing is allowed on the schedule (Sunday?). “No schedule” days

could be family days, board game days, movie nights, walk days, or chill

days where everyone does their own thing. Whatever sounds good and

feels right. Scheduled rest times could be eating times, a time where

everyone knows they can gather for food. For a lot of families, this might

be an early or late dinner. But, for others, this time could be breakfast,

brunch or lunch. Rest on your schedule could mean all of the above.

Whatever you decide on for rest, make it sacred. There’s no running

around or stress for anyone during these times. There’s no driving in

circles or stuffing food in your mouth as you run out the door. There is

only doing things that revitalize you, strengthen your relationships, or

fill your individual cups. This might mean that you do things together,

or it might mean that you do things apart. One thing is for sure: There is

opportunity. Opportunity to rest. Opportunity to connect. Opportunity

to explore and grow.

At the end of it all, this is your schedule. It should decrease your stress

levels and serve you and your family. It supports your priorities and

increases your communication. As for getting your 5-year-old to get

their socks on? That’s on you.

GAME ON

'NORMAL' SEASON | HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES TAKE THE FIELD

...

by COLIN ANDERSON

Back to school; it means something different to each student. While some look forward to the routine of the school day, others are

eager to see friends on a daily basis. Moving up a grade means new challenges, tougher assignments, and often more personal

responsibility. Where summer can be the carefree time of lounging, hanging with friends or working a few hours a week, the

school/life balance is about to begin again. This is especially true for those who will also be returning to the field, pitch, course and court

this fall.

To say the last few seasons of high school sports have been a challenge would be a true understatement. Before 2020, a season being

canceled was something that wasn’t even a remote thought in the minds of coaches, athletes or parents, but all across the country it

happened. The graduating class of 2020 missed out on their final seasons of baseball, softball, track and field, and golf. And while there are

definitely bigger hardships that have come out of the pandemic, missing out on your final year of high school competition is something

that will continue to sting those athletes for years to come.

While the class of 2020 has moved on, the classes of ’21 and ’22, and beyond, were subject to a time of constant changes and challenges,

mandates, rules and safety protocols. Some districts played on while others postponed seasons. A few traditional rivalry games were lost,

and opportunities to play competition outside the area or the state were limited—if allowed at all. For some seniors, fall football and

volleyball were held this past spring. When those seasons wrapped up, they hardly had time to catch a breath before track, baseball and

golf started up to finish out the year. While most will say they are thankful to have had the opportunity to finish out their career, it was,

again, not an ideal situation.

As we head into the fall sports season of 2021, things are seemingly heading toward a more “normal” season. Teams have been practicing

and training all summer long, together. Where virtual meetings and distanced, low-contact practices were once a mandate, kids are

once again working together as a team, side by side, learning to hone their skills and to overcome the challenges each day of practice

brings. Any coach will tell you that you can have all the best players, but if they can’t come together as a team, their accomplishments

will fall short of their expectations. And while kids may loathe the

two-a-days, or the wind sprints, or the constant whistles of a tough

day on the field, everyone going through it as one will produce the

bonds needed to create that team environment that will be key to a

successful season.

Let’s also not forget the benefits that come with being part of a team.

While some athletes are training year-round in hopes of landing a

scholarship to play at the next level, the vast majority, even some

of the very best players you see, will finish their competitive sports

career in high school. And while winning is important, for many, just

being part of a team, trying to get better, and showing up for your

teammates are just as important as getting the “W.” Team sports help

form friendships that might not have otherwise happened. Younger

athletes see how older members of the team lead and take lessons

from the experience that will translate when it becomes their turn to

lead the team. Coaches might push their athletes hard to be better,

and while the student might not appreciate it at first, they soon realize

the impact that coach’s daily lessons are having on other aspects of

their lives.

Teams have put in the prep, and the season is here. Cross country,

volleyball, soccer, football and others are ready to compete again.

And while we still aren’t back to normal, with some districts

requiring masking in the weight room or of the coaching staff, most

competitors will gladly take a few additional steps in order to have a

full season of competition in the sports they love so much.

As fans and spectators, let’s celebrate all this hard work and dedication.

As we prepare to pack the stands again, let’s cheer a little louder and

show how proud we are of the hard work young athletes put in, no

matter the outcome. Let’s also recognize the times and be respectful

of the rules each district has in place for players and fans and in no

way jeopardize another game or season based upon actions up in the

stands.

The fall sports season is here. Stand up and cheer. A simple “Great

job” or “Keep your head up” can mean the world to an athlete who

will experience both highs and lows throughout the season. Let’s

make this season one to remember!

tips for

SUPPORTIVE PARENTING

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

Parenting is often considered one of life’s greatest challenges and one

of its greatest rewards. A relationship with a parent is one of the

most influential in a child’s life, and infusing ample love, respect and

support within that relationship can provide a powerful defense against life’s

challenges. Use these six tips to help strengthen the supportive connection between

you and your child:

DEDICATE TIME TO SHARING EXPERIENCES

The older children get, the busier and more complicated their schedules tend to

become. Staying engaged with kids as they continue to grow into their own person

is key for building a strong foundation of support. Whether it’s cheering them

on at their sport, supporting them in a new hobby, playing a game or having a

meal together, designating quality time together throughout the week, no matter

how small, helps to create a stronger bond. In fact, when it comes to shared

experiences, a little goes a long way—it’s often the smallest, most thoughtful

gestures kids remember most.

ENCOURAGE PRODUCTIVE LEARNING

Parents have busy schedules of their own, which can make for a very full plate,

especially during the school year. Busy parents can maintain their responsibilities

while setting the stage for children to succeed in school by setting practices in place

like a healthy bedtime routine and healthy meals. Building strong routines early on

gives kids a sense of stability they will take with them later in life. And by taking the

guesswork out of day-to-day scheduling, kids can more easily make the best out of

their time, whether it’s productivity in school, positive interactions with peers and

friends, or feeling rested enough to engage in the activities they love.

A PERFECT FALL GETAWAY

Explore Central Oregon from the luxurious Brasada Ranch

By Marguerite Cleveland

Central Oregon is one of the top destinations in the United States for outdoor adventures. In early fall, you can still enjoy water

activities, hiking, golf and cycling as the weather begins to cool down a bit. There is plenty to do exploring the cities in the area.

Bend is larger with plenty of restaurants, craft breweries and lots of tax-free shopping. The charming small towns of Redmond,

Sisters, La Pine, Prineville, Madras and Warm Springs have a historic vibe with local shopping and restaurants. Whether you

want to be super active or chill on the back porch of your cabin, there is something for everyone in Central Oregon.

Where to Stay

The luxurious Brasada Ranch is a destination resort situated on 1,800 acres of high desert on the scenic Powell Buttes in Central Oregon.

This stunning location has panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and high desert. Its location, about 20 minutes from Bend,

makes it a perfect base to explore the area. Much of the property is left in a natural state, and its isolated location adds to the sense of peace

and quiet. Accommodations vary from the adult-only Ranch House suites to the rustic luxury of the one- to four-bedroom Sage Canyon

Cabins. They are fully equipped with everything you need for your stay.

PLEASURE HORSES. THERE ARE MORE

THAN 900 ACRES OF HIGH DESERT TO

EXPLORE ON HORSEBACK.

On the resort you will find a world-class golf course and a state-of-the-art fitness

facility. They even have Peloton bikes. The ponds below the Trestle Bridge are

stocked with fish, and spin rods are available for rent. The heated pools and spas

are just stunning, with the Cascade Pool designated for adults only. Children

will love the waterslide. Plan to take a hike on the resort to Spirit Rock to watch the sunset. It has stunning 360-degree views of the resort and the

surrounding area. On site is a Brasada Adventures Concierge, which can help you plan activities both on and off the resort.

Insider Tip: Book a cabin with an outdoor hot tub. The lighting at the resort is designed to not interfere with the dark skies. The cabins are laid out in

a way that feels very private. During my stay we used the hot tub every night and enjoyed stargazing in the pitch, dark night skies. Truly an amazing

experience.

Where to Eat

With a fully equipped kitchen, you will want to cook a meal or two at your cabin. The resort offers their famous Ranch Platters, which you can order

by 11am for the next day. There are a variety of entrée options, and it includes all the ingredients and detailed instructions to prepare the meals. It

comes with three sides, and you can even order wine to pair with your meal. The resort has two restaurants, as well as dining events, so make sure

to check the website for some culinary opportunities.

If you are going to go out to dine, you need to head to Bend. There are a crazy number of award-winning chefs, and the dining scene is a foodie’s

Mecca. According to “The Huffington Post,” Bend was named one of the top cities with the most eateries per capita. The choices can be overwhelming.

You can go trendy, but the Pine Tavern, a local favorite, has been around since 1936. This darling restaurant actually has two Ponderosa pine trees

growing in the dining room. Dine indoors or, if the weather is nice, outdoors overlooking Mirror Pond. The menu is simple and hearty. If you’re

lucky, there will be prime rib available as a special.

What to Do

Before venturing off the ranch, take advantage of all

the activities. A great fall activity is horseback riding.

Brasada Trails offers trail rides on Mustangs, Draft-

Cross and Western Pleasure horses. There are more

than 900 acres of high desert to explore on horseback.

An experienced guide will pair you up with a horse

based on your ability. In addition to the trail rides,

there are other experiences available throughout the

year.

Insider Tip: Carrots are available at the General Store

to grab to feed the horses.

Smith Rock State Park is the crown jewel of Central

Oregon and, if you do nothing else, is one activity

not to miss. It rivals the Grand Canyon and Yosemite

National Parks for stunning scenery. Plan to get here

much earlier than you think you need to because it is

extremely popular. The park is open dawn to dusk for

day use. Bring plenty of water and plan to do some

hiking. Trails range from easy strolls along the rim

overlooking Smith Rock to epic elevation climbs for

magnificent views. Be aware that, although there is an

easy trail down in the canyon, you will have a steep climb back up at the

end, so plan for it. In addition to the great hiking, the area is popular for

rock climbing. It is so amazing seeing all the people scrambling up the

sides of Smith Rock.

The High Desert Museum is such an eclectic destination. You will find

not only art and history but also wildlife. The museum architecture

blends well with the natural setting, and there are indoor galleries as

well as outdoor spaces to explore on the 135-acre campus. There are

such a variety of exhibits. Indoors you can learn about the history of the

Plateau Indian Nations as well as early settlers. Animal exhibits include

the Desertarium and the resident porcupines. Once you head outside,

the trail will take you to a range of exhibits to include the Miller Family

Ranch, which often has living history presentations. The Sawmill is

fascinating as well as the exhibit on the effects of wildfires on the forest.

The otters frolicking in their enclosure are always a hit.

Insider Tip: Silver Sage Trading is the museum’s gift shop and has such a

great variety; a perfect place to purchase souvenirs from your trip, and it

helps support the High Desert Museum.

There are so many cute small towns just a short drive from the Brasada

Ranch. A must see is Sisters, a Western-themed town that is filled with

culture. There are more than 14 art galleries nestled among the Westernthemed

buildings in the Hood Avenue Art District. There is a good local

music scene with the Sisters Folk Festival in early October. Shop the

galleries and boutiques, and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

Central Oregon is known for its outdoor recreation, but there is so much

more. It is the perfect destination for a fall getaway. There is something

about visiting a destination resort that is so relaxing and helps you to

slow down a bit.

Insider Tip: If you don’t feel like driving, you can catch an Alaska Airlines

flight from Seattle or Spokane to the Redmond Municipal Airport –

Roberts Field.

BREAD

Recipe Courtesy of Tina VanDenHeuvel-Cook, NTP, NHC

You can follow Tina on Instagram @madebetterforyou

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups grated zucchini

2 1/2 cups almond flour

1/2 cup sweetener (I use Lakanto brand golden sweetener)

1/3 cup unflavored whey protein powder

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. salt

3 eggs beaten

1/3 cup sour cream

1/4 cup butter melted

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 overripe banana, mashed

1/2 cup walnut halves

METHOD:

• Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Line a 9x5 loaf pan with

parchment paper.

• Wrap the grated zucchini in a clean kitchen towel and

squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Discard liquid and set

zucchini aside.

• In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients: almond flour,

sweetener, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg

and salt. Stir with a fork.

• In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients: eggs, sour

cream, butter and vanilla. Stir in mashed banana.

• Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

Stir in zucchini and walnuts.

• Pour batter into a parchment-lined loaf pan and bake in a

325˚F oven for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool before serving. Slice into 12 slices.

BONNERS FERRY FARMERS MARKET HARVEST PARTY

TAKES PLACE SEPTEMBER 18

by JILLIAN CHANDLER

When looking to support those in your community

by purchasing local goods made with love, the

weekly Bonners Ferry Farmers Market is the

place. All summer long, the City Parking Lot

has been alive, bustling with local farms, food producers

and artisans coming together to share their goods with the

community. Each market day, shoppers are treated to nearly

30 vendors with everything from fresh produce, spices and

baked goods, to handmade soaps, handspun yarn and more.

Join the Bonners Ferry Farmers Market and its many

wonderful vendors for the annual Harvest Party, a celebration

of the end of the growing season, taking place this month!

Welcome fall in all its glory on Saturday, September 18.

From 8am to 1pm, make a plan to head to Bonners Ferry City

Parking Lot, where you'll find a fun atmosphere and all the

wonderful vendors with their variety of products and goods.

Winter squash and root vegetables will be ripe and ready,

perfect for those savory fall recipes. And to top off the market

festivities, there will be live music by local talent Greg Ashby.

Mark your calendar for October 2—Customer Appreciation

Day and the last day of the summer market. There will be

free raffle tickets given out for the chance to win raffle prizes

featuring donated goods from the market vendors.

And … there’s more good news, with the Holiday Market

just around the corner in perfect time for the holidays! The

Holiday Market has been scheduled for November 13 and,

this year, the Bonners Ferry Farmers Market will be hosting a

Winter Market on December 4, 11 and 18, at Memorial Hall at

the Boundary County Fairgrounds.
