First, make sure you know what your health
insurance covers and how much you might have
to pay out of pocket for treatment of illnesses such
as cancer or kidney ailments. If you’re on Medicare
(supplemented with Medigap) or Medicare
Advantage (Medicare Part C), you’ll want to know
all about deductibles, copayments and coinsurance.
However, if Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia
is involved, Medicare may not cover the costs that
could be incurred in an assisted living facility, so
you may want to consult with a financial advisor,
who can suggest ways of protecting yourself from
long-term care costs, which can be quite high.
Your next move is to make sure you have adequate
liquidity. It’s hard to predict how many out-ofpocket
costs you could incur when coping with a
serious illness, but it’s a good idea to have enough
cash readily available, rather than dipping into your
401(k) or other retirement accounts. So, if you’re
retired, you might want to keep up to a year’s worth
of living expenses in a liquid, low-risk account.

“OUR GOAL IS TO OFFER A GREAT
PRODUCT AND TO BE A BEACON WITHIN
THE COMMUNITY, WHERE EVERYONE
THAT COMES THROUGH OUR DOORS IS
GREETED WITH A FRIENDLY FACE AND A
14 Go Sandpoint Magazine
Eric and Kelly Thompson met on the Olympic
Peninsula in Washington while Eric was
serving in the Coast Guard, and both had
the dream of moving to Sandpoint for many
years. Originally both from small towns, each was
inspired to create a place where people could come
in and feel part of a community, like family. In
September of 2020, the couple purchased Kokanee
Coffee, fulfilling both dreams.
Today, they operate the business as a way to connect
with the community and serve one delicious cup of
coffee in a warm, inviting environment that is open
to all. They roast all of their coffee fresh in house
and take every opportunity to pour into others—
both caffeine and a helping hand.
Q. How has Sandpoint been instrumental in
Kokanee’s success and story, and what makes this
area such a special place to run a coffee shop and
be part of the community?
A. The Sandpoint and Kokanee community has
truly welcomed us with open arms, which is a true
testament to the people within our area. Kelly and I
were very transparent about our intentions, which
are to elevate God’s kingdom, which has drawn a
lot of people to Kokanee. Our goal is to offer a great
product and to be a beacon within the community,
where everyone that comes through our doors is
greeted with a friendly face and a welcoming heart.
Kokanee is so special to so many because of those
sincere and intentional interactions.
Q. How is Kokanee an active part of the
community, and in what ways do you give back?
A. We are extremely community oriented and
like to serve and give back when we can. We like
to honor each veteran, military member, police
and fire service member with a discount on each
purchase. We understand that our freedoms are
not free, and we need to offer a small “thank you.”
Within Kokanee’s walls we take the opportunity to
pray with people openly and offer a prayer wall for
those individual needs. On a larger scale, we also
have been graced with the opportunity to work
with local churches, Bonner County Chaplains,
Life Choices Pregnancy Center, Freedom House,
Bonner Gospel Mission, TrustVets and youth
organizations such as various Sandpoint school
programs and Sandpoint Composite Mountain
We have been integrated into the fabric of this
community by simply seeing a need and using
Kokanee as the platform to help to support others.
We recently just started doing a monthly veteran
feature called Coffee with Vets. This allows the
stories of various veterans to reach our community
and, more specifically, our youth. It has brought
us tremendous joy to be involved with these
Q. What sets Kokanee apart as a local coffee shop?
A. We understand that Kokanee has the opportunity
to be so much more than just another coffee shop.
Coffee is everywhere, and we understand that we
have to offer an experience for people to choose
us over other establishments. Sandpoint has
some amazing coffee and cafés. For us to have the
customers we do is just simply amazing.
I think the special factor about Kokanee is the
intention behind everything we do. Whether it be
interaction with each customer, small-batch coffee
roasting, homemade soups, baked goods or handstamped
“Jesus loves you” on every cup of coffee,
each aspect is a recipe to make our customers feel
Our vision for Kokanee is to offer that personal
connection with not only those serving you but
the community within our shop. Our customers
are truly so welcoming and inviting to all, which
is something that is just a representation of the
Sandpoint area. It brings us pride to even be a part
of the Kokanee Coffee story. There is no denying
that it is a special place.
Q. How is community central to the vision and
long-term goals of Kokanee?
A. Community is everything to a sit-down coffee
shop, and our community is the reason that
Kokanee even exists. It brings us such joy to see a
lot of the same faces daily, and we love them like
family. Our customers know our kids, go to the
same church, pray for us and we pray for them.
We are family. Kelly and I love helping families and
individuals in times of celebration and crisis. We
understand that our long-term goals of expansion
and growth will have the community in mind. We
would love to expand to an additional location as
well as partner with other businesses to elevate the
community of Sandpoint.
Q. What are some long-term goals for Kokanee
Coffee, and what do you hope to accomplish
through the business?
A. We are aiming to become mission-led when
it comes to acquiring our beans from various
regions of the world. Coffee is the second-most
traded commodity in the world. Most countries
are impoverished and lacking a hope of education,
health care and self-reliance. We want to do more
than just acquire coffee from these amazing
countries, we want to offer the hope of something
greater through the Gospel. On a local focus, we
want to continue to elevate our involvement within
our youth sports and social clubs. We want to
continue to integrate with other local businesses to
help our local community.

MAKING STRIDES TO HELP
THOSE IN NEED
BY ABIGAIL THORPE
ith the holidays in the air and Thanksgiving around
the corner, we’re all preparing for the first snowfall
and the arrival of family and friends to celebrate all
that we hold close. As we’re stocking up our fridges
and decorating our tables, now’s the perfect time to stop and look
outside our own front doors to consider the many ways we can give
thanks by giving back.
There are many incredible nonprofits and organizations throughout
the community committed to helping those in need throughout the
year, and what better time than Thanksgiving to become a part of
bringing life, hope and change to those in need?
From soup kitchens and food pantries to resource centers,
fundraisers and organizations working to help the homeless, there
are boundless opportunities to get involved, whether you have time,
goods or money to give. It doesn’t have to take 10 hours a week—
perhaps you have a day here and there to give a few hours of your
time, or next trip to the grocery store you stock up on some extra
items that will help feed a family. However you feel led to help,
every gift or moment spent goes that much farther to bringing an
The Starting Point: Resources
Whether you’re looking to donate your time or goods, or if you’re
someone in need looking for help, the Community Resource
EnVision Center makes it easy to get started, uniting nonprofits and
service providers under one roof so those in need can come and
find the help they need. “Three things that we do here: Get help,
get connected and get informed,” explains Linnis Jellinek, executive
director of the center. “Getting help is serving clients in need who
don’t know where to turn.”
Now in its 11th year, the resource center not only helps direct those
in need to resources and partners who can help, they’re a great
resource for individuals looking to get involved. The volunteer
connect program allows people to see various organizations
looking for help and volunteers, and find the right fit for their skills,
desires and availability. “It really empowers the service community.
We’re working together to improve services and provide effective
solutions,” says Jellinek. “Anything to fulfill our mission, which is
dedicated to bringing hope to people who don’t know where to turn.”
The EnVision Center’s purpose is simple: To help people reach
self-sufficiency and a sustainable position in life through financial
empowerment, health and wellness, and character and leadership
development. Currently, the center is working with another local
nonprofit to help find a solution to urgent sheltering needs in our
community, and there are opportunities for people to get involved
in every capacity, whether it’s getting out and volunteering,
or donating resources. You can stay connected by visiting

Helping Hands Healing Hearts opened in May of 2017, and as of July
31, 2021, has served 1,785 women, men and children through 3,649
visits. The joint ministry of 18 Sandpoint area churches extends a
helping hand to the community by offering free food, toiletries,
diapers, clothing, houseware, furniture and more to those in need.
In addition, the organization offers incredible classes like resume
writing, budgeting, marriage classes and more to assist people in
bettering their lives. There are no financial restrictions, and HHHH
is able to operate because of donations, volunteer work and financial
support from individuals and churches in the community.
About three months after opening, Helping Hands Healing Hearts
was hit with the dire homeless problem Sandpoint faces. After
various efforts to house people in homes, a room in the church and
even their garage, co-directors Jon and Cathy Pomeroy realized what
is truly needed is a transitional living center.
“The need for housing for the homeless in this community is greater
than most people realize,” explains Cathy Pomeroy. “Seventeen
percent of the clients that come through our center are homeless.
That translates into 185 adults and 73 children since opening. And
that is just our organization.”
As a result of a fundraiser and donations, HHHH has been able to
sign a contract on two acres of land in Ponderay to build The Good
Samaritan Inn—a three-story, 44-studio apartment building with
a day center, office and classroom. Clients will work up to paying
$400 per month, staying up to two years in order to get their feet on
the ground. “While there, clients will take classes on budgeting, life
skills, personal hygiene, and be connected to job training, church
sponsors for mentoring, and, if needed, mental counseling,” adds
The goal to fund the project is $2 million—a big goal, but one that
fills a vital need. Not only are time and goods donations essential
to HHHH, financial donations to help fund the homeless transition
center are essential. “We, as a community, can do this,” encourages
Pomeroy. “The more we help the homeless, the better our community

Feast for the Season
As the cold weather sets in, good food and a warm place to eat
are more vital than ever, and there are multiple organizations and
businesses around our community helping to make sure everyone
has access to food. The Bonner Community Food Bank is dedicated
to helping provide essential food items to those in need in the
community, including food for kids both at school and over the
weekend, helping to make sure no child goes hungry.
They are always in need of volunteers and donations, and are a
simple, easy and vital way to spread some joy and goodness not only
this season, but throughout the year. On your next grocery shopping
trip, pick up some extra staples and drop them off, or volunteer with
your family or a friend one day a month—whatever you can do, it all
makes a difference.

Events and fundraisers are one of the main ways nonprofits fund their services, and
this holiday season there are some exciting ones we can support right here in our
community. Every year, we look forward with anticipation to the annual Festival of
Trees fundraiser for Kinderhaven, a community organization dedicated to supporting
children in crisis. This year, the event will be virtual once again, with the beautifully
decorated trees placed in downtown businesses from December 8 through 11. “We felt
it was just too soon to gather in large crowds, and if last year is any indication, we know
‘Tour of Trees, Take 2!’ will again be a huge success,” says Kathy Chambers, board chair
and volunteer coordinator at Kinderhaven.
A silent auction will be held from December 4 through 11, with auction items available
for viewing at the new headquarters at 113 Main Street. “Last year we were humbled
and surprised by how many sponsors came forth; many businesses who had not
participated before wanted a presence at the Tour of Trees,” adds Chambers.
Besides sponsors, the fundraiser is in need of volunteers, donations, tree hosts and
decorators, and more. “We are currently looking to replace our vehicle we use daily, and
also our 10-person van. These are big expenses for us, but safety has to be our number
one priority with our kids. The best help we can get is for our supporters to participate
in this once-a-year (and our only) event!”
On December 2, the Sandpoint Community Resource Center is holding a holiday
gathering from 4 to 7pm, the perfect opportunity to learn more about the EnVision
Center, various organizations and nonprofits in Sandpoint, and how you can get
involved. It’s a fun time to come out and learn about the new work they’re doing to help
address homelessness in addition to other opportunities and needs in the community.
There will be live music, a Toys for Tots drop, and a Selkirk Realtors family gift tree
where people can grab a family’s name to bless for the holidays. “I just invite people
to come out, take a tour and see what we’re doing. Come out and catch the Vision!”
Whatever way you choose to give back this holiday season, there are many opportunities
through the organizations mentioned here and many others to bless someone in our
community with your time, resources or donations. And while this is the perfect time
to remember those in need in our community, may we continue to give back not only
now but throughout the year.

As does the housing market
By Joshua Nishimoto
With last year’s onset of COVID not far off in the rear view, and
winter slowly setting in, we are seeing some interesting trends
in the local housing market. Interestingly enough, these trends
are swinging on opposite ends of the spectrum depending on family size,
occupation and overall lifestyle choices.
“We’re still seeing many buyers looking to get back to the land and become
self-sufficient,” said Jackie Suarez, Associate Broker with Century 21
RiverStone. “This has resulted in homes on acreage selling quickly. The
driving factor for this decision is land size and location; the home features
are sometimes secondary. On the other end of the spectrum, smaller homes
(less than 1,000 square feet) have become the target not only for young
professionals who like to travel, but also for people in their retiring years
looking for a low-maintenance lifestyle.”
As per usual, the winter season brings on a slew of different types of buyers
who are looking to hit the slopes, and those interested are finding that there
aren’t a lot of available properties at the moment.
“Locally, each fall and winter brings interest in Schweitzer Mountain and
our ski properties,” Suarez said. “Currently, there is record-low inventory—
as of my writing, only two Schweitzer residences are listed in our local MLS.
Stay tuned for an update on the Schweitzer market as winter unfolds.”
The best thing about seasons changing is that so does the housing
market. When compared to other housing markets, Sandpoint retains
“It’s really about our lake and our ski resort that makes Sandpoint such

When thinking about buying a home, it’s important to do your research and
rely on the team of experts that you have around you.
“Try not to let emotions rule your decisions,” Suarez said. “Evaluate and
inspect each property carefully to know what you are buying or selling.”
For those who are waiting for the market to turn before purchasing a home,
the most important thing is to know what you want and think about the most
important aspects of a home that you are willing to wait for and what you
need right now.
“For buyers, this depends on your patience level and ability to continue
saving,” Suarez said. “Inflation will likely continue to push pricing up, and
interest rates are forecast to increase. The question to ask yourself is how long
are you willing to wait and what else can your money be doing for you in the
For those willing to wait for prices to go down prior to buying their first
home, or a new home, there may be some bad news on the horizon, with
many looking to other areas for more affordable housing.
“Many buyers have left our market for different areas of the country for more
affordable housing,” Suarez said. “Expect that trend to continue for some in
their wage-earning years.”
On a brighter note, there is more and more low-income family housing
available each day. With those looking for something to purchase, there are
options, but are they affordable?
“Multi-family housing units are being built as we speak,” Suarez said. “They
may fill the need for affordable rentals in our area. The question still remains
as to whether the local wage will be able to support a home purchase.”
For those who are still looking to purchase their first home, there are many
resources for helpful information out there. Make sure to shake all of the trees
and seek out all the information that is available to you.
“Seek advice from local professionals in all aspects possible,” Suarez said.
“This includes real estate agents, lenders, insurance agents, financial planners
and construction professionals. If the first-time home buyer does not have
cash to purchase the home, they’ll likely need financing. Save enough for a
down payment, don’t overextend yourself financially, and learn as much as
you can before entering the market.”

Growing trends in the Sandpoint housing market swing from buyers looking
at larger plots of land for self-sustainability, to young professionals who
are looking to purchase smaller homes with less upkeep in exchange for
travel. Those who are looking to retire are also in search of smaller homes
for similar reasons.
With Sandpoint’s lake and ski resort being the most attractive aspects of
the area, buyers are noticing that there aren’t many options available and
are looking elsewhere. On the other hand, multi-family housing units for
rent are currently being built. Only time will tell if the local infrastructure
remains viable for long-term renters.

AN OPPORTUNITY TO
HONOR AND THANK
VETERANS APPRECIATION EVENT PLANNED FOR NOVEMBER 20
By Jillian Chandler
Wild Horse Trail Chapter of the National Society Daughters of
the American Revolution are hosting a Veterans Appreciation
Event on Saturday, November 20, at 2pm. 2021 marks the
inaugural year for the event, and veterans in Bonner and Boundary
counties, and their families, are encouraged to attend.
The purpose of the event is to honor those members from all branches
of services, those who have served overseas and domestically, and
those who have served during war or peacetime, and thank them for
their service to our nation.
“Every year, for both Veterans Day and Memorial Day, the Wild Horse
Trail Chapter places flags on the graves of veterans at the Westmond
Cemetery,” says Jessica Rorman of the Wild Horse Trail Chapter of the
National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. “This year,
our chapter wants to hold an event to honor all local veterans, and if it
is well attended, we may organize this yearly event.”
Committed to historic preservation, education and patriotism, DAR
members believe it is their duty—our duty—to honor and thank those
who have served and sacrificed and/or are still on active duty, “giving
us another reason that honoring veterans is a matter close to our
hearts,” Jessica shares.
The event, which is free to attend with no registration required, takes
place at the Sandpoint Events Center (102 South Euclid Street) in the
beautifully restored auditorium from 2 to 3pm. As of press time, two
of the three guest speakers had been confirmed: Vietnam War Veteran
Dick Goodbehere and WWII Veteran Ellwood Werry. After the program,
complimentary coffee and cookies will be served.
“In addition to the Veterans Appreciation Event, our chapter is also
participating in a program called Wreaths Across America, and in
December we will be placing wreaths on the graves of veterans at the
Westmond Cemetery,” says Jessica. Anybody interested in sponsoring
a veteran wreath, or interested in learning more about the Wild Horse
Trail Chapter, can contact them at DARSandpoint@gmail.com.

UNITE TO LIGHT THE MARQUEE
The Panida will hold its annual Membership Meeting on Tuesday, November 9. Prior to the
meeting, there will be much excitement, as the Panida will present the official Marquee Lighting
Countdown Ceremony, when the new neon, fresh coat of paint and recently cleaned reader
panels await to be lit up for all the community. Don’t miss the excitement, which happens at
6pm! The Panida team helps to guarantee that the Panida Theater (Panida.org) remains a unique,
historic and art-deco venue for generations to come, ensuring that live concerts, classic and
current movies, local and touring theatrical productions, and community arts organizations will
continue to flourish. The community did not wane in coming together and uniting to light our
theater’s marquee. Now come celebrate!
On Sunday, November 14, the Music Conservatory of Sandpoint will once again present its annual
Fall Serenade to benefit student scholarships. This year, the event promises to be the most unique
serenade—A House Concert that will include performances throughout the conservatory’s
venue, located at 110 Main Street. Guests will be treated to the extraordinary talent of MCS’s
music teachers from 3 to 5pm. Not only will proceeds benefit the youth of the community who
wish to learn to play an instrument or fine tune their singing abilities, but the event will include
a raffle featuring prizes donated by Sandpoint’s local businesses, as well as a delicious bake sale.
Funds raised from the raffle and bake sale will also go to support student scholarships. Tickets to
attend the event are priced $25 for adults and $15 for students. Additional details can be found
NOVEMBER 20 & 21
The Christmas Fair is Sandpoint’s finest Christmas market. You won’t want to miss this year’s
event, which takes place Saturday, November 20, and Sunday, November 21, 9am to 3pm
both days. Held at the Bonner County Fairgrounds, the 2021 Christmas Fair will feature local
handmade crafts, vendors, unique gifts, treats and delicious food, and kids activities. Come join
the community for two days of wonderful festivities. Admission is free! In addition, there will be
the fourth annual Gingerbread House Competition, which will benefit the Bonner Community
Food Bank. To enter, please bring two non-perishable food items along with your completed
gingerbread house. For more information, please contact the Fair Office at 208.263.8414.

continuing pandemic, there is the possibility that event schedules may change or events canceled
completely. Be sure to visit event websites to stay up to date with current information.

A Legacy of
Sixty-seven years ago this month, on
November 11, 1954, a scheduling
snafu resulted in the Sandpoint High
School football team being scheduled to
play two opposing teams on the same day.
Legendary SHS coach Cotton Barlow—
considered by many to be the greatest
coach in Sandpoint history—split the
squad, and played Bonners Ferry in the
afternoon and Coeur d’Alene in the evening,
winning both games.
It was almost exactly 48 years after
Sandpoint High School held its first
interscholastic athletic event on November
22, 1906. Over Coach Barlow’s coaching
career, he would achieve a coaching record
of 217-85, an average of just fewer than
seven wins a year; would coach Sandpoint
native Jerry Kramer, who would go on to
play right guard for the Packers and be
inducted into the Hall of Fame; and was
instrumental in building the stadium that
would ultimately be named after him, and
where the Bulldogs played from the early
‘50s until War Memorial Field was renovated
in 2016: Barlow Stadium.
