Summer Sights, Sounds

and Celebrations

CLEAN ENERGY

for a

CLEAN WORLD

Summertime. It seems like it

arrives and then is gone all too soon. The long

days, the warm air, the outdoor activities and

celebrations that abound all throughout town;

these are the days when families and friends,

young and old, come together to enjoy each

other’s company and cherish the time spent

together, at a slower pace, while taking in the

beautiful Northwest.

Picnics in the park, a day out on the water,

hiking the local trails, shopping the local

farmers markets and attending much-loved

community events … the summer months are

meant for making memories.

As the kids are out of school enjoying the

freedom of no schedules, a break from sports

and extracurriculars, this is an exciting time

for our youth, while us parents still find

ourselves trying to juggle our careers and

spend more time with our families. Too bad

there’s no summer break for the adults—

and for those who do have time off in the

summer to enjoy what’s most important, you

are blessed.

See the summer through the eyes of a

child, and make the time to explore and get

dirty. Splash in the water. Take a nap. Eat

watermelon. Build a sandcastle or mud pie.

Get messy. Ignore the laundry and the dishes.

Skip making the beds. Family is forever. Make

this summer one where family comes first.

Going solar has a wide range of

benefits. Whether your focus

is economic, environmental, or

personal, solar is a clean renewable

process that uses the most natural

resource – the sun – while keeping

money in your pocket.

about the cover

Summertime goes hand in hand with outdoor adventures. As the sun

shines down from the clear blue skies and the warm breeze blows

against our skin, this is the time to get outside and explore. Whether on

the water or land, get out of your comfort zone and try something new!

HERE’S WHAT ARTIFICIAL TURF CAN

DO FOR YOUR LAWN

is the grass

greener?

18 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022


y JOSHUA NISHIMOTO

july/august COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL

Over the years, since the

inception of Astroturf in

1965, man has struggled

to come to grips with the

ultimate question: Is the grass

“greener” when it’s artificial? Let’s dive into the pros

and cons of going with synthetic grass versus

genuine grass to answer this question.

Artificial grass was first used in

Major League Baseball in the

Houston Astrodome in 1966,

replacing the grass field

used when the stadium

first opened a year earlier.

Artificial grass stands

up to heavy use, thus

the reason it’s used on

many sports fields. It

requires no irrigation

or trimming. Domed,

covered and partially

covered stadiums may

require artificial grass

or turf because of the

difficulty of getting

grass enough sunlight to

stay healthy.

As for the pros of installing

artificial grass for your front

and backyard spaces, most

people use artificial grass because it

requires little to no maintenance. It also

requires no irrigation, trimming or gaspowered

lawn equipment, and with growing

concerns about water conservation and healthrelated

issues surrounding fertilizers and pesticides, artificial

grass is increasingly becoming the first choice for homeowners.

Dog owners can rejoice that synthetic turf is great at preventing even

the most persistent puppies from digging, while being exceptionally

stain and fade resistant. Not only does it stand up to pet abuse,

but your lawn edges can stay crisp and look sharp over the years.

Synthetic grasses come in different varieties of colors, lengths,

densities and finishes, improving the aesthetics of your home while

simultaneously upping your home’s curb appeal.

Another key advantage of artificial turf is the longevity and durability

of modern synthetic grasses. Until recent years, the warranty offered

on most turf products only covered a few years. However, with the

recent developments in the artificial grass industry, warranties for

the longevity of some lawns can reach up to 25 years.

come to the

artificial side

With the longevity and reliability of artificial grass, this home-use lawn

product can come with a high-priced barrier of entry. On average, a

homeowner will spend between $6 to $12 per square foot, versus 40 cents

per square foot for traditional sod. You will also need to add infill to

ensure that individual grasses stay upright and do not get matted down.

There are wide varieties of infills available including rubber, sand, Zeofill,

Durafill, Envirofill and TCool Infill. The most widely used type of infill

would be crumb rubber for most stadiums and sports arenas. Made from

recycled tires, it provides good shock absorption qualities.

The second most widely used infill is silica sand. Sand is the least

expensive infill and tends to be cooler in direct sunlight while absorbing

moisture and eliminating some odors naturally. Silica sand infill is easy

to come by and spread, while like any day at the beach the silica sand can

be jagged and painful to roll around on. It may also just hitch a ride to the

bottom of your shoes and make its way into your home.

Another popular infill that people use for their artificial turf is ZeoFill or

ZeoLite Infill. This infill tends to be the least popular for its lightweight

properties but most popular for eliminating pet waste smells. Zeolite is

also very porous, which helps keep your turf cooler in direct sunlight

when compared to most rubber and sand infill options. Regardless of

which one you go with, they all have their pros and cons. If you have pets

or children, you will most likely want to get an

infill that keeps your grass cool, orderly and

odorless to help keep your artificial lawn

pristine.

While you may be conserving

resources like water with an

artificial lawn, synthetic grass

will heat up exponentially

in direct exposure to

sunlight. While artificial

grass is non-flammable,

you don’t want it to be

extremely hot to the

touch. One solution to

the problem is to use

an infill designed to

cool off your grass and

make sure that it’s fine to

walk on with your bare

feet. Some infills (like

the TCool Infill) are also

designed with technology

that captures water from

ON THE ARTIFICIAL SIDE.

rainfall, dew, or irrigation and stores it for later use. As the sun’s radiation heats the turf,

an infill can help release moisture, keeping the surface cool for up to four days from a

single moisture event.

While infill is a great way to keep your lawn looking its best, it needs to be replaced a

few times throughout the life of the turf. The most infill can cost between $8 to $12 per

bag, and one bag typically covers about 30 square feet. Replacing your infill can be done

yourself, or you can use a service from a professional installer if time is more of an issue

than money.

When considering the cost versus time and convenience of an artificial lawn, it can be

a great investment that will outlast a traditional (organic) lawn. The amount of time

it takes to take care of the soil, plant seed, or install a traditional lawn will be saved.

Though the initial cost of installation may be higher than anything else you’ll find on

the market, the pros of low maintenance and longevity of your lawn make the pros of

purchasing an artificial turf lawn far outweigh the negatives of purchasing and installing

your lawn.

With the onset of new and improved technologies, including processes to increase

the clarity and vibrance of one’s artificial lawn, the grass might just be greener on the

artificial side. Of course, you are free to make that judgment for yourself.

making

old new

again

Seeing the beauty

in antique pieces

by RACHEL KELLY

Just because it’s old doesn’t mean it’s done. If

anything, it means that it’s stood the test of time. As

styles have gone in and out, there are some pieces

that stand out as being classic. It could be the lines of the

piece that never go out of style, or its lasting practical

use. Perhaps it’s that the object seems to carry with it

a memory, a story. Maybe that table used to center in

your grandmother’s kitchen, bearing the responsibility

of feeding 20 farmhands for breakfast, lunch and

dinner. Maybe that jewelry box once held your mother’s

wedding ring. Perhaps that hat stand was bought for

your great grandfather by his childhood friend. Maybe

those boots were made for walking, and there’s still

plenty of journey left in them. Whatever the reason,

whatever the story, here are six ways to give a new look

to your favorite old pieces.

26 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022

26 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022


Change Your Perspective.

Sometimes the best way to bring life to old things is to change what

holds it. Whether this means giving those vintage pictures a new

frame, placing an antique piece on a floating shelf, or placing it in an

unconventional location. A great example would be plates hung on

the wall or door handles used as hooks. There are lots of ways to keep

unused pieces that are no longer needed for everyday use.

Change Its Purpose.

The jug that used to carry water from the outdoor well just might make

a great umbrella stand. The container that used to carry snuff might be

great for pills. The door that used to hang in your family’s 100-year-old

shed might be great as a backdrop for hooks that you can hang your

bags from. The large picture frame might look great as a headboard, or

the ladder might double as a blanket holder.

july/august COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL

A Splash of Color.

Don’t be afraid to go bold with your old pieces. An old milking

stool or basket can provide that much-needed pop of color in

an otherwise earth tone (or white) home. Bright colors such as

sun yellow, teal, fire engine red, aqua … whatever you like best.

Everybody needs something that when they look at it, they can’t

help but smile. Sometimes a little color is all you need.

Give It a Wash.

This is not meant to be a literal wash, although a clean slate is always

best to work with. With old things comes a lot of wood color, which

can mean a lot of different shades of wood in one place. Dipping

a damp rag in white paint, and then rubbing the white along the

surface of your old antique can preserve a classic look while allowing

it to be more neutral.

Strip It Down.

Some pieces really do need to retain their wood color to preserve

their authenticity. However, as previously noted, a whole bunch of

wood colors in one space may not be preferable. Stripping your

old pieces down to their bare wood, and then re-staining them in

matching stain brings much-needed congruence to a place filled

with old pieces from different eras. If it’s got to be wood color, it

might as well match.

Re-fit and Polish.

There are some things that are simply not made the

way they used to be. Like those big wing-backed

wooden upholstered sofa chairs, or hundred-yearold

chandeliers. There are some things that are right

just the way they are, however, they may not be quite

perfect as they are. In such a case, the best thing to

do is to reupholster or shine to perfection. Some

things just have good bones but need a little shine to

highlight their original glory.

Salute to A

CENTURY

The North Idaho State Fair celebrates 100 years

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

This August, the North Idaho State Fair salutes to a century,

promising more to see and do as it celebrates 100 years of

classic fair fun.

The first North Idaho State Fair was held on September 29, 1922.

Now an award-winning fair based in Coeur d’Alene, the fair

has held strong to its values of local agriculture, talent, youth

education, and family friendly entertainment.

“Every year, we try to keep a really good combination of keeping

our traditional favorites and adding some new flair,” said Alexcia

Jordan, general manager for the North Idaho State Fair. “We try to

keep it interesting so you don’t always see the same thing but can

still count on seeing your favorites.”

Jordan looks forward to a “really good combination” of those

factors this year: the traditional staples of fair food, exhibits and

entertainment, and exhibits, blended with new, exciting elements

to memorably ring in 100 years. “We’ve worked really hard with

our programming,” she said.

“We kick off the fair on the 19th, with a grand opening ceremony

that anyone is invited to attend,” shared Jordan. The ceremony will

take place at 4pm, with the fair itself opening at 2pm that day.

Music is an intrinsic piece of fair entertainment, and this year,

musical artists will take the stage three nights in a row for the

Party in the Dirt Concert Series at Findlay Arena.

Traditionally, the concert series has been two nights long. This

year, it’s scheduled for August 22 through 24, featuring platinum

recording artist and singer-songwriter Jordan Davis, Grammy-

“Every year, we try

to keep a really good

combination of keeping

our traditional

favorites and adding

some new flair.”

nominated Christian rock quartet Skillet, and popular

rock band the All-American Rejects.

Additional live entertainment will include a new show

this year, Big Air at the Fair, featuring X Games medalists

performing “crazy tricks,” including flips on snowmobiles,

dirt bikes and four-wheelers.

“If you’re an adrenaline junkie, that show is for you,”

Jordan said.

Big Air at the Fair will bring its high-flying, family friendly

fun to Findlay Arena on August 19. Monster truck shows

are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, followed by the

Concert Series, Xtreme Bulls on Thursday night, and

ending with the ever-popular Gem State Stampede PRCA

Rodeo, which is often a sold-out event.

“On Sunday, we do two shows, a matinee rodeo and demo

derby at 6:30pm,” Jordan said. “Those last five shows

always sell out before that day. If anyone wants to come,

it’s critical to buy tickets early, and buy online.”

The fair’s Salute to a Century theme will be continuously

celebrated throughout its run, with fun elements like

Decade Days that will highlight music from each decade,

100th Anniversary coins, including a silver-plated

souvenir coin and a 24-carat gold-plated coin, for sale on

“The best feeling in

the world is stepping

people enjoy the

work that we put

in to put it all

together.”

One of the top additions this year is the introduction of

the Golden Ticket. “It’s an exciting new program that offers

lifetime admission to the fair,” Jordan said.

All proceeds from this year’s Golden Ticket sales will go

toward a new, larger livestock barn at the Kootenai County

Fairgrounds, a need recognized by the fair board.

“Our livestock programs have grown exponentially, so

we’re down on space,” Jordan said. After years of limited

space for livestock programs, the fair looks forward to the

introduction of the Golden Tickets serving a special, unique

purpose that will pave the way for the next 100 years of 4-H

and FFA programs.

Jordan herself has been working with the fair since February

of 2015. The livestock is one of many of the functioning

pieces she appreciates about the event.

“The competitive exhibit program is the most traditional

piece of what fairs are today. It’s why fairs got started—

showing your livestock, all of those things that we offer

premiums for,” she said. “It’s a fun little way to, as a person

who is crafty or creative, have the opportunity to showcase

your talent and earn back accolades—ribbons, prize money,

whatever that might be.”

Beyond the opportunities to showcase local talent, Jordan is

driven by the value the fair brings to the community.

“The best feeling in the world is stepping back and watching

people enjoy the work that we put in to put it all together,”

Jordan said. “Watching people enjoy, smile, laugh, be

together with friends and family, whatever it is that brings

them to the fair, is just a beautiful thing when you know

you’re helping to create memories for others and bringing

smiles to people’s faces. That’s my purpose.”

The North Idaho State Fair has now brought that purpose to

life for a century, and everyone’s invited.

“We’ll be here for 10 days of fun to salute a century,” Jordan

said. “Skip the lines and buy online—it’s the fastest and most

convenient for everyone!”

Tickets are now available online at NISFair.fun.

of the year

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

Let’s connect and

help you find

your perfect home!

KEVIN MAHONEY

Venture High School

Coeur d’Alene’s Kevin Mahoney was not

only honored as the school district’s

high school and overall Teacher of

the Year, but was selected to represent Coeur

d’Alene Public Schools as the nominee for

Idaho State Teacher of the Year.

Mahoney is a math teacher at Venture High

School, an alternative school that offers an

emphasis on professional technical courses and

focuses on college and career preparedness.

Mahoney is known at his school to be an

engaging educator, demonstrated through

lunch breaks spent playing basketball with

students or playing ping pong after school, and

starting an after-school art club for his students.

“Kevin is helping students gain confidence to

tackle problems and understand what it takes

to solve challenging issues,” Coeur d’Alene

Schools shared.

He has been teaching in Coeur d’Alene Public

Schools for nearly five years. Before time with

Coeur d’Alene Public Schools, he taught at Post

Falls High School.

“The type of kids we have here make every

bit of work that I do 110 percent worth it,”

Mahoney shared to Venture High students

upon acceptance of his award.

According to Coeur d’Alene Schools, “Both of

his parents were teachers as well, and he grew

up understanding how rewarding it can be to

have an impact on students every day.”

It’s clear that Mr. Mahoney’s intention to impact

his students has been successful.

At Venture High School, Mahoney has

led a wellness program that combines

extracurricular activities into the school day

once a week, allowing students to experience

a wide spectrum of activities including yoga,

dancing, rock climbing, and learning how to

play the guitar.

“All of these things make teaching curriculum

easier in the classroom,” Mahoney shared in a

statement. “I teach math to at-risk students, a

combination that is challenging to say the least.

To engage students in learning mathematics,

I get creative. I film my own real-world math

tasks, bringing fun, challenging tasks from their

own community.”

His approach to teaching is anchored in a

desire to build positive relationships with his

students. As Mahoney’s educator biography

reads, “There is no reason learning math can’t

be fun!” It’s clear that his engaging curriculum

and interactive approach is exactly that.

As the nominated overall outstanding educator,

Mahoney will continue to represent the district

over the coming year. He remains in the

running for Idaho state Teacher of the Year, an

honor whose winner is typically announced

in September during a surprise visit at

their school.

“One of my biggest challenges was recruiting,”

Through the challenge presented by the

Skylar Burke shared. “The outcome is worth

all the effort in the end.”

Named one of the high school’s two Athletes

of the Year, Skylar’s hard work has certainly

translated into an ideal outcome, from

her recognition as a scholarship-winning

athlete, being named among the top 10 5A

basketball players in Idaho earlier this year,

and countless more successes.

Skylar has played sports since she was 5 years

old and was a multi-sport athlete throughout

her high school career, playing volleyball,

basketball and softball.

Even still, her high school career wasn’t

without its challenges, especially when

COVID-19 entered the picture.

“It was my sophomore year that we upset

our rivals, Lake City High School, to

become district champion and go to state,”

she recalled.

As a class of 2022 senior, Skylar graduated

as a four-year varsity player in softball and

basketball and a three-year varsity player in

volleyball. Now, she sets her sights on college

basketball and beyond, where her drive will

surely translate into continued success.

“I am looking forward to competing at such

a high level at UC Santa Barbara, with the

amazing coaching staff and team that they

have there,” Skylar shared.

When asked her plans for the future and her

career beyond school, she shared her interest

in pursuing crime analysis and forensic

psychology. Even still, she remains open to

where her talent in sports can take her. “I

would love to play professional basketball,

though, if the opportunity came up,” she said.

Right now, she can enjoy the rewards of her

efforts. “It felt amazing being selected as

Athlete of the Year,” she said, “and getting

recognized for all of the hard work and

dedication I have put into all of my sports.”

he says. “I’ve torn both my AC joints in my

shoulders, I’ve had a few bone bruises on my

ankles, and I broke my ankle this year during

football season.”

Through it all, Gunner developed a

strong sense of dedication, discipline and

perseverance in all aspects of attaining

from sports is that you have to not only be

A VOICE FOR

North Idaho CASA supports

and security don’t just happen,” the North Idaho

CASA’s website reads, quoting Nelson Mendela in a

statement supporting children in living “a life free of

“Safety

violence and fear.”

That support is what drives North Idaho CASA: the need for child

advocacy; being the voice of children who have suffered abuse.

North Idaho CASA, an acronym for Court Appointed Special

Advocates for Children, supports trained advocates for over 300

victims of child abuse and neglect in North Idaho across Benewah,

Bonner, Boundary, Kootenai and Shoshone counties. Across Idaho,

seven CASA/GAL programs recruit, train and support volunteers

in advocating for children who have been impacted by entry into

the child welfare system and who have been victims of neglect,

abandonment or abuse.

“CASA advocates investigate child protection cases, represent the

child’s best interest in court, and help find them a safe home with

a forever family,” according to their mission statement. “Our vision

is that every child victim aged 0 to 18 in the five northern counties

under the purview of the Child Protective Act is appointed a CASA,

who will advocate for and represent the best interests of the child for

the entirety of their child protection case.”

The organization has made a difference in the lives of children

and families through its various projects, fundraising efforts, and

programs, notably through the development of Project Permanency.

“Most people know that CASA helps children overcome the trauma

they have experienced through abuse or neglect,” the organization

shared. “Whether reunification with the biological family or

adoption into a new family is the result, CASA also provides tools

for healthy living to the whole family.”

Reunification is the process of reuniting families after children have

been removed for their safety. Child welfare agencies report the

process requires multifaceted strategies, family centered services,

and an array of valuable resources.

Through Project Permanency, North Idaho CASA works to support

family connections, aid in the process of releasing shame, and

helps to build stable relationships. “We are rooting for successful

reunification for all of our families,” they share.

The development of the Project Permanency program grew

from a recognized need to provide basic household essentials for

reunified families, including beds, kitchen appliances, vehicles,

and more—essentials provided to instill a feeling of normalcy,

family activities, and a safe space. Through Project Permanency,

North Idaho CASA works to support family connections and more

stable relationships.

“WHETHER REUNIFICATION WITH THE

BIOLOGICAL FAMILY OR ADOPTION

INTO A NEW FAMILY IS THE RESULT,

CASA ALSO PROVIDES TOOLS FOR

the whole

family.”

“We have found, in most cases, the difference between the

path to successful permanency or financial and emotional

turmoil can be as simple as having a drivable car or a

working washing machine,” the organization stated.

Project Permanency also allows for partnerships with local

businesses to fulfill the item requests for supported families.

Project Permanency has seen success—its funding has helped

keep siblings suffering from situational trauma together with

the purchase of a triple bunk bed, and aided foster children in

regaining their health and making progress through difficult

diagnoses such as failure to thrive and plagiocephaly.

These stories began with children in neglect and trauma, but

through acts of kindness facilitated by Project Permanency,

have evolved into stories of hope and resiliency.

North Idaho CASA offers ample opportunity to support

its cause: sponsoring a child, donating online, becoming a

corporate partner, or becoming a SuperHero.

As one of North Idaho CASA’s fundraising programs, the

SuperHero Society allows members to offer a monthly

donation, starting at as little as $20 per month, to help ensure

North Idaho CASA can serve every child rescued. No matter

the size of the donation, no donation is too small, allowing

anyone with any budget to become a SuperHero and provide

the gift of security to the CASA advocates and child victims

throughout North Idaho.

Those interested in supporting North Idaho CASA can also

do so through their annual fundraising events.

“CASA’s two biggest fundraisers are happening this summer

and fall,” shared Kristin Ludwig, director of development

at North Idaho CASA. The CASA Classic is scheduled for

Friday, August 5, at the Circling Raven Golf Club. Longest

Drive and Closest to the Pin sponsorships are available, and

team registration is open as of July 1.

Their annual fall fundraiser, CASA Uncorked, will take place

at the Hagadone Event Center on Thursday, October 27, at

5pm.

10th annual

Coeur d’Alene Artists

Studio Tour returns

this August

by JILLIAN CHANDLER

“I

believe in the power of connection, education and community.

These entities can propel us toward a more joyful life, if only we

seek them out.” - Kathy Gale, impressionist painter and co-founder

of the Coeur d’Alene Artists Studio Tour

The last weekend of August, you won’t want to miss out on attending

the Coeur d’Alene Artists Studio Tour. 2022 marks the 10th year of

the tour, presented by the Coeur d’Alene Arts & Culture Alliance, and

is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, August 27 and 28, 10am to 5pm

both days. Free to the public, this is your opportunity to experience the

creative process firsthand.

The studio tour affords the community the opportunity to visit 17

working studios of painters, sculptors, jewelers, potters, glass artists and

textile artists, from Hayden to Coeur d’Alene and into Post Falls. More

than 40 artists will be showing and discussing their work, often while

working on new pieces and demonstrating their unique style.

“The studio tour is the rare opportunity for artists or enthusiasts, of any

age, to see art being created and to meet the artists creating it,” shares

Steven Shortridge, world-renowned painter and writer, who will be

featured at Kevin and Patti Jester’s studio and exquisite garden. “It’s not

magic, it’s passionate work. Come and see!”

Opt for the VIP Shuttle Tour, which is $50 per person each day. “It

includes a lovely catered lunch in one of the studio gardens, bottomless

mimosas, transportation for the group to each studio—half on Saturday

and the other half on Sunday (though you do not have to do both days)—

and a tour guide who gives insights into each of the artists prior to the visit,” says Ali Shute, executive director of the Coeur d’Alene

Arts & Culture Alliance.

This year, with the goal of making art affordable for everyone, each participating artist will be creating a unique 6x6-inch piece of

original art to sell for $95.

Prior to the tour, from August 12 through 19, there will be a preview exhibit at the Human Rights Education Institute, where each

artist will be displaying a piece of art representing their style of work. That Friday evening, August 19, from 6 to 8 pm, is the preview

reception. “This is a chance to meet the artists, pick up information about the tour the following weekend, and enjoy an evening of

art and music with a live band,” says Ali. Appetizers will be included, along with a no-host bar.

Additional information, along with the list of participating studios and tour map, can be found online at ArtsandCultureCdA.org/

artists-studio-tour. Studio Tour maps are currently available at the Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center.

Tips for the Tour:

• Reach out. Artists appreciate conversing with people interested in their art and practice.

• Bring questions. Consider asking about sources of inspiration, artistic processes and techniques, and maybe the artist’s intentions.

• Ask first. Be sure to ask before taking photos of an artist’s work and before posting anything on social media. If there is a piece of art

you’re interested in, ask if it’s for sale!

The

Mediterranean

Diet

EAT RIGHT,

LIVE WELL

by RACHEL KELLY

58 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022


july/august COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL

Some of the oldest people in the world, with the highest

quality of life, live in the Mediterranean. This could

be in large part to their active lifestyle; the people of

Greece and Italy walk and bike everywhere as well as spend

a lot of time outdoors. This could be because of their deep

connection to family; the people of the Mediterranean

are interconnected to their family and friends and often

live with several generations

under one roof. It is also true

that culturally, the people

within the Mediterranean stick

to rhythms that encourage

them to connect to their

greater community. However,

their rich lifestyle of lifelong

health is believed to be mostly

attributed to their diet. The

Mediterranean is known for its

cultural roots that encourage

high-quality foods, eating

within season, eating locally

according to what’s available,

gardening, and responsibly

caring for the animals

and animal products that

they consume.

The Mediterranean diet is

modeled after this way of

living and encourages a

healthy dietary pattern that

is sustainable as a lifestyle.

This means that diets such

as the Mediterranean diet

are more a way of life, versus

a strict standard that forces

weight loss; weight that once

lost returns once you return

to daily living. Research

shows that the Mediterranean

diet can lower chances for

cardiovascular diseases,

prevent certain types of cancer,

and it can have a positive

impact on mental health. If we

are to assume that the people

of the Mediterranean live a

long life in part because of

their diet, there is also the added benefit of living long. The

goal of such a diet is not to look perfect but to live within

the weight that is healthy for your body type. To help you

to feel good, versus craft a body that is “presentable.” The

goal here is long life, lived well, surrounded by those you

love. In light of that, what is the Mediterranean diet?

The Mediterranean diet is pretty straight forward, crafted

around local Mediterranean cuisine. It emphasizes fruits,

vegetables, beans and legumes; things like peas, lentils, all different types

of dried beans, tomatoes, and leafy greens. It includes low or nonfat dairy

products, fish, poultry, non-tropical vegetable oils and nuts. So, palm oil

and coconut oil are out, while peanut oil, avocado oil and olive oil are

acceptable. Olive oil is especially encouraged as a source of healthy fats.

Freshly pressed, olive oil is considered to be more of a condiment than an

oil and has a variety of uses in all types of cuisine. As expected, this diet

limits sugary foods, highly processed foods, and foods high in sodium.

Lightly processed foods, such as quality cheeses, are allowed. Foods that

have a (relatively) ample amount of salt aren’t prohibited in any way, just

foods that contain high levels of sodium. Foods that are high in sodium

are generally preserved and highly processed; sodium becomes easier to

avoid as long as highly processed foods are limited.

The reason that the Mediterranean diet has been proven to work so well

is because it mimics the natural flow of what our bodies derive from

nature and suggests ingredients that have been proven to encourage

healthy habits for generations. It is for this reason that there are other

diets that also work in much the same way that the Mediterranean diet

does. Diets such as the DASH diet are also considered to be healthy for

lifelong use. DASH, or the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension, is

a diet that allows for more dairy and meat and doesn’t restrict healthy

fats to ingestion of olive oil. True to its name, the DASH diet helps lower

blood pressure by focusing on foods that are high in potassium, calcium

and magnesium. This means that under the DASH diet one can eat fruits,

vegetables, nuts, grains, beans, lentils, dairy and lean meats all in balance

and moderation.

Diets such as Paleo, Keto, or Whole 30 are surprisingly not on this list.

Not because they don’t yield results! The Keto Diet can be great for

someone who is suffering from diabetes, and the Whole 30 diet can

be great for helping someone overcome bad habitual eating. However,

these diets are not considered heart healthy, nor are they approved for

lifetime adherence. In any diet, the focus should always be on quality over

quantity. Foods high in nutrition are the primary focus, versus foods that

satisfy quickly but ultimately go unused by the body. That being said, our

bodies need all kinds of foods, versus strict restrictions, to get the variety

of nutrients that it needs for overall health. For instance, breads and pastas

are widely eaten in sustainable diets because carbohydrates are good for

quick bursts of energy. Carbohydrates are balanced in moderation by fresh

and cooked fruits and vegetables, as are part of a meal. Eating well isn’t

so much about focusing on eating one thing and not eating another, but

eating everything all together. For instance, pasta is usually eaten with

pasta sauce, which usually incorporates a variety of vegetables with a

moderate amount of meat. Taken all together, a healthy diet focuses on the

whole plate. In turn, from head to toe, the whole body is well fed.

PERSEVERING COMMUNITY PRESERVES

Blooms

NIC students collect samples throughout Kootenai County

for science course open to the community

by MEGAN SNODGRASS, NORTH IDAHO COLLEGE

North Idaho College students Lauryn Schnabel,

left, Riley Chapin and Steven Kistler examine past

students’ herbariums in the botany lab on May 3 at

NIC’s main campus in Coeur d’Alene.

Sometimes getting an education can

feel like a hard-fought uphill battle, but

North Idaho College students enrolled

in Systematic Botany took it to a literal level

when they scaled a mountain to complete a

lesson on April 26.

More than a dozen students took to Canfield

Mountain trails on a rainy morning to collect

wildflower samples. It was the final field trip

of the semester for a class on regional flora

that NIC has offered to students and the

community for decades.

NIC botany students learn about the anatomy,

classification and identification of plants in

lectures before they spend the last month of

classes in the field collecting samples at Beauty

Bay Campground on Lake Coeur d’Alene, at

Stateline and Q’emiln Park in Post Falls, and

at Canfield Mountain in Coeur d’Alene. They

bring fresh samples to the lab at NIC, where

they inspect, dissect, identify and preserve

plants in preparation for their final project—

the presentation of an herbarium, a collection

of dried specimens that includes detailed

information and data.

NIC Associate Professor of Biology Mike

Kelly said the course is a micro-focused

localized class that gives students valuable and

relevant knowledge.

“I say this class is as close as we get to a trade

skill in the sciences,” Kelly said. “We’re actually

learning the skill to identify plants, and that’s

genuinely useful for anyone who wants to do

outdoor biology, whether they’re doing it for a

career or for a hobby.”

Maggie Broadway is a dual-enrolled NIC

student and a junior at Christian Heritage

School in Edwall, Washington, who

commuted to NIC’s Coeur d’Alene campus

to take the botany class this spring and earn

general education credits before she graduates

high school.

“I’m thinking about doing an Outdoor

Recreation Leadership program, so it would

be nice to say, ‘Hey, that’s this kind of tree and

this is this plant’ in that program or in a job in

that field,” Broadway said. “It’s kind of a party

trick, but I’d rather take botany than any other

science. I’m not particularly good at science,

because it’s hard for me to see the actual

application of science in the things I like to do,

but I like plants, and this is something I can

see and use in real life.”

THE MOST IMPORTANT

HOUSE CALL

Heritage Health serves those with mental illness

People suffering from severe mental

illnesses still have the same physical

challenges as everyone else.

Many medications used to treat severe mental

health conditions can cause weight gain,

elevated cholesterol, and increased blood sugar

levels. This can greatly increase the risk of other

medical concerns such as diabetes and heart

disease. Statistics show that men and women

with mental illness have shorter life spans,

reducing life expectancy from between nine to

20 years.

“The negative effects of mental illness can have

physical consequences, leading to a significant

reduction in lifespan and quality of life,” says

Dr. David Atkins, vice president of Medical

Services. “Having access to care is a major issue

for this patient population. Sometimes it is as

simple as not having transportation.”

In hopes of changing these negative statistics,

the old-fashioned medical tradition of house

calls is making a comeback. Heritage Health

is now sending its providers to people’s homes

through its Healthcare at Home program.

“We can provide an enhanced level of care for

patients who historically don’t see a provider

very often,” says Atkins. “This will improve

access to preventive care and ensure medical

concerns don’t fall through the cracks.”

Harmony House Assisted Living specializes

in providing a safe home environment for

individuals with mental illnesses, traumatic

brain injuries or intellectual disabilities.

by MARC STEWART, HERITAGE HEALTH

Currently, Harmony House cares for about 70

residents at five locations in Hayden, says owner

Jenifer Christensen.

“Our residents have enjoyed having the

providers come to their home,” says

Christensen.“The communication between the

providers and our staff has been wonderful.”

Atkins says the communication piece is

essential.

“We can go in and look at the notes from a

provider in real-time and make medication

adjustments based on what is happening with

the patient,” he says. “Having a direct line

of communication between our psychiatric

services and our medical services has been a

game-changer for many of our patients.”

Barbara Sullivan, a house administrator with

Harmony House, says having a provider come

to the residents makes a huge difference.

“I can’t even begin to tell you how much it has

done for our residents,” says Sullivan. “A lot of

them don’t like to leave the house. I have one

resident who has paranoid schizophrenia, and

getting him to go to the doctor is like pulling

teeth. If the weather is bad, he won’t go. If he

thinks there is a storm coming, he won’t go.

He’ll say he doesn’t feel up to it. Now, he is

seeing his primary care provider regularly. It’s

been a godsend for him.”

Exercises for

the Ages

No matter your age, these at-home

routines are sure to keep you fit

by JILLIAN CHANDLER

Starting at a young age, just days old, we are constantly exercising our little bodies. As

babies, we first learn to lift our heads, learn to roll over, crawl, walk. Before you know

it, we’re off and running. As toddlers and young children, we’re always on the move.

And at some point, whether it be the hours spent behind a desk at school or at the office, we

find it harder to find the time to keep our bodies active. Extracurricular sports are a great

way to be active during your school-age years, but after that, what?

Here are some great ways to exercise your body throughout the week, no matter your age.

You’ll feel better, and younger. The internet is a great resource to find instructions and

videos of different movements and exercises.

Focus on your

shoulders, triceps,

hamstrings and

calves.

Stretching

As simple an act as stretching can be, so many of us fail to incorporate

this into our daily lives. And it can be done anywhere, anytime, in no

time at all—no matter your physical capabilities. When you first wake

up in the morning, as your coffee is brewing or your water is boiling

for you morning cup of tea, set yourself up on your carpet or yoga

mat, and stretch! Focus on your shoulders, triceps, hamstrings and

calves. Be sure to breathe during each movement. You’ll feel refreshed

and ready to start your day.

Walking

We all know that walking is essential. It’s how we get from point a

to b, but many aren’t walking enough. Make it a point to get up and

moving every hour. Set a timer to remind you. Walk up and down

your stairs; purchase a step with risers, adjust to a height that works

best for you, and walk/step up and down until you feel your heart

rate increase. Even step outside to walk around your yard. The goal is

The Art of

Weight Training

1

If

it’s been a while since you last lifted a

hand-held weight, you will want to start

light. You can purchase a set of 1-, 3- or

5-pound weights to start off, and as the

current weight you are using becomes

easier, move up a pound or 2.

2

Proper

form, for any exercise, is imperative;

not only to avoid injury but to get

the most out of your workout. Videos may

be helpful, but you may want to head to a

local gym for a one-on-one session with a

personal trainer, so they can show you the

correct techniques before you get started

on your own.

3

Create

a simple routine for yourself (or

have a personal trainer set one up for you

that you can do on your own), and schedule

a time each day during the week when

you can focus your mind and body to

the work.

Strength

Training

Though we work many of our muscles throughout

the day just by doing our normal daily activities

and chores, there are muscles that require special

attention, as they are not as easily utilized. That’s

where strength training comes in. It’s as simple as

picking up a pair of hand-held weights (dumbbells).

Dumbbell squats, chest presses, deadlifts, scaption

raises and rowing are all great exercises that are great

for all ages.

Cycling

Stationary bicycles are great machines to invest in, with many

small, sleek options that don’t take up too much space. And you

don’t have to have a room dedicated to a home gym. Stationary

bikes can easily fit in your bedroom or living room. While

watching your favorite show, instead of lying in bed or lounging

on the sofa, make it a point to pedal along while enjoying a little

TV entertainment. Depending on your activity level, you can

increase the tension for a more intense workout.

Pushups

An effective way to strengthen the chest

and arm muscles, there are several ways

to do a pushup to best suit your age and

strength. Using your own bodyweight,

and your arms, find a firm surface,

place palms shoulder-width apart, the

balls of your feet firmly planted on the

ground, body in plank position. Slowly

bend your elbows, lower your body, and

push yourself back up. This exercise can

also be done from the knee position,

or for older folks, standing upright and

pushing from the wall.

HEALTHY TIP/OPEN

tip

HEALTHY

Adventure Outside for

Your Health and Happiness

The summer months give us a reason to get outside, no matter the time of day. As the

sun makes its presence known early in the morning and well into the evening, take that

as an invitation to take in all that sunshine, fresh air, and all the outdoors that surround

you have to offer.

A run before work, a walk to your neighborhood restaurant or coffee shop during your

lunch break, an after-dinner walk with family; these are the simple ways during a busy

work week to unwind, refresh, and squeeze in a little exercise.

Come the weekend, plan a hike on your favorite trail; dust off your bicycle and join

a riding group; take a swim in your favorite outdoor community pool, river, lake or

ocean; or hit the water for some kayaking, canoeing or paddleboarding. If you have

an entire weekend to escape the everyday, a camping trip to a nearby campground will

keep you outdoors and active all day long.

There’s plenty of time to get outside and enjoy the outdoors this summer. No excuses.

So, what are you waiting for? Start small and think big!

eyes pop

Ready to make

your eyes (and

eyebrows) pop

this summer?

These highlighting facial features can make all the difference

in enhancing your face shape and facial expressions. Wellplanned

eye makeup can refresh your look instantly, and

whether your makeup style is detailed or low-key, this

summer’s trends are all about glowing up, starting with

those eyes!

Don’t overlook the eyebrows when it comes to accentuating

those eyes. Through all the trends eyebrows have seen and

endured over the years, one thing has been consistently clear:

Paying attention to the eyebrows is important! Makeup artists

often describe how eyebrows can change the entire look of

the face.

Eyebrows can reframe the shape of the face and allow you

to express yourself without saying a word. Fortunately, there

are more ways than ever before to enhance the look of your

eyebrows, and many of this season’s most popular methods

are nearly effortless.

Draw the attention to your eyes this summer with the

following tips and trends:

Eyebrow Lamination. One of the most popular eyebrow

trends of 2022, brow lamination is a non-invasive, semipermanent

treatment designed to produce perfectly balanced,

brushed-up brows that last for weeks or months.

The treatment involves restructuring the brows using a

product that helps straighten curled hairs, increase symmetry,

and balance gaps in the brow hairs. The brows are set into

ultra-glam,

adorned

features are in

a more desirable, brushed-up shape using a long-lasting fixing

product, leaving a well-set final result: the appearance of fullerlooking

brows. Ask your esthetician about eyebrow lamination.

Full, Minimalist Brows. Embracing your natural brow this year?

You’re already on trend! Celebrities, influencers and makeup artists

alike are keeping their looks simple by embracing their eyebrows’

natural shape for a more relaxed appearance. The all-natural brow

embraces length, fullness, longer tails, and fluffy, soft edges. No

need for harsh tweezing or over-maintenance. Minimalist is in!

Minimalist brows can still be bold—it’s all about embracing the

fullness and personality of your natural brows. To accentuate

your brows, use a tinted brow gel or pomade, starting with a light

application. Work up to find the right amount for your desired

look, using makeup brushes to balance the look and achieve your

desired shape.

Under-Eyeliner. The eyes can be accentuated with just a subtle

change, like the placement of your eyeliner or the color you use.

The “reverse wing” trend has emerged for 2022, calling for lines

placed under the eye in a bold, flattering look. Under-eyeliner

tends to lift the outer corners of the eyes, helping the eyes appear a

bit bigger and brighter.

Smudged Eyeliner. Expressive “moody” makeup is in for 2022,

and you can bring the look of a smoky eye into the summer with

this season’s revived smudged eyeliner trend. All you’ll need is your

everyday black eyeliner (for ease, opt for a pencil or crayon over

liquid eyeliner) and a short eyeshadow brush. The unstructured,

messy-chic look is easy to create—simply apply your eyeliner

and use your brush to softly blur the lines right away. The best

part? Leaning in to the unstructured, rule-free aspect of this look.

Release the focus on flawlessness and embrace a little freedom with

this trend.

Make a Statement with Metallics and Eye Shadows. The summer’s

eye makeup trends celebrate color pops with bright, summery

tones, and all things glitter. From the runways to mainstream

media, the eyes are making more of a statement than ever this

year. It’s all about the eyes this season, and ultra-glam, adorned

features are in, from metallic eye shadows to carefully placed gems

and rhinestones. Adding a gem to the inner corners of the eyes

has become a popular look—just use a drop of latex-free lash glue

before carefully pressing on your gem of choice! If

you want the glam without the accessories, start

with a metallic glitter, or a bold, shimmering shade

of eyeshadow, to incorporate the statement-making

trend into your everyday eye-makeup routine.

Colorful eyeshadows in pastels and bright hues are

in—choose your shade and place it on top of an

eyeshadow primer to ensure a strong hold. Pair your

bright eyes with neutral lip colors and a clear brow

wax to keep the color pop in focus!

Color Pops with Eyeliner. Not sure if you’re ready

to step into the bright-colored eyeshadow trends

this summer? If you want to try something new

without going for a full-colored eyeshadow, a colored

eyeliner applied along your lower lashes is the perfect

compromise. It might feel like an adventurous step

from your normal look (especially if that look is

based in ultra-natural or neutral tones), but it’s a

subtle enough step out of your comfort zone that you

just might love it! A swipe of color under your bottom

lashes can quickly add impact and significantly

brighten the eyes with little effort.

Warm Blushes and Tanned Tones. Lean into a

summery glow and sun-kissed tones with your

makeup this season, including your eye makeup! An

all-over facial glow is a definite summer look, and all

it takes is some bronzer, lipstick in a warm, neutral

shade, and a shimmering copper-toned eyeshadow

to achieve the appearance of being sun-kissed

throughout your face.

With blushes back in style this season, use that to

accentuate this trend. When you’re using blushes

or bronzers to accentuate your facial shape (on the

bridge of the nose and low on the cheeks), use the

remaining product to brighten your eyelids for an allover

brightening!

I was recently invited on a Press Trip to experience the Viking Egdir, one of the company’s newest longships launched

earlier this year, on the Rhine Getaway itinerary. The eight-day cruise began in Basel, Switzerland, with stops in

France, Germany and The Netherlands along the Rhine River. Each day brought exciting new discoveries as the ship

passed charming villages plucked right from a storybook, vineyards crawling up hillsides, Gothic cathedrals, and

even Dutch windmills. The highlight of the trip was the 40-mile stretch of the Rhine River between Koblenz and

Bingen, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Egdir cruised past more than 20 medieval castles dating back

to 966 and the delightful small towns surrounding them. It was such a magical experience.

Pro Tip: Book your airfare through Viking and pay the extra $100 to $150 for Viking Air Plus, which allows you

more options in selecting your flights and seats. With the current pilot shortage and frequent airline delays, you

will have peace of mind as Viking provides a 24-hour hotline to use during your journey. The representatives work

with the airlines and Viking to get you to your cruise. On my trip they even delayed our departure so a guest could

make the cruise.

Restaurant, the main dining venue, or the Aquavit

I truly enjoyed the culinary experiences on board the

Viking Egdir. You have the option of dining in the

Terrace that offers both indoor and outdoor seating

depending on the weather. The same menu is offered

at both locations. Each day there are classics that are

always available, specials of the day and at dinner a

region. In the evenings there are optional excursions

to local restaurants, pubs or wineries. I took a culinary

walking tour of Strasbourg, France, and had the

opportunity to eat and drink from local vendors and

restaurants across the city. Onboard the ship, some

of the cultural enrichment events were culinary with

a food demonstration and the opportunity to taste a

local delicacy.

STAY

My accommodation on the Viking Egdir was their

Veranda Stateroom. One of the things I like about

Viking is the brand consistency. Each Viking Longship

is the same, so you know what to expect. I recommend

the Veranda Stateroom, as it gives you extra space with

the private veranda. The views are spectacular with a

floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door, versus one that pulls

open, so you can enjoy fresh air in your cabin if you

like. A nice feature is all the 110/220-volt outlets and

USB ports. The Scandinavian design is thoughtfully

engineered with plenty of storage space and a very

comfortable bed with luxury linens.

River cruising provides a more intimate experience

with only 190 guests and 50 crew. You won’t find the

spas and multiple dining options that are on ocean

cruise ships, but I didn’t miss it. I enjoyed spending

time on the sun deck with its 360-degree views of the

Rhine River and a beautiful organic herb garden. There

is plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge, which

serves as the main common area as well as tucked

around the ship.

The Egdir cruised past more than 20

medieval castles dating back to 966 and the

delightful small towns surrounding them. It

was such a magical experience.

DO

Viking provides one complimentary shore excursion for every

port of call except for departure day. On arrival day there was

an opportunity to take a Welcome Walk with a local guide

through Basel. Each day the included excursion is either a bus

tour or a walking tour. I was very impressed with the quality of

the tours and the guides. Most days you can take the included

tour in the morning and an optional one in the afternoon or

evening. Guest services and the program director were flexible

and able to arrange seats for a sold-out pub crawl when more

guests wanted to go.

Take advantage of the fact your ship docks right next to town. I

was able to walk right off the ship and into Cologne, Germany,

and a few other towns to explore. In Koblenz, Germany, I was

able to enjoy a currywurst at a local imbiss (fast food hut)

right next to the ship before walking over to catch the gondola

high up a hill to the mighty fortress of Ehrenbreitstein. Make

sure to pack comfortable walking shoes. This was truly a

memorable trip.

Hydration is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and nothing quenches your thirst like a tall

glass of water. Whether you prefer cold or room temperature, it’s up to you. But … sometimes water

needs a little kick to make it a bit more exciting.

A CLEAN

COMPLEXION

What you put into your body directly affects

your outward appearance. And there’s

no exception when it comes to water. A

hydrated body means hydrated skin, and the

most noticeable is your face. Water intake

plus a good diet and beauty regimen will

ensure your face, and the rest of your skin,

look their best.

HUNGER

CONTROL

Water is known to aid in weight control.

Dehydration is all too common among

Americans, often resulting in hunger pains

when in fact the body is in need of water.

Make it a habit to start your morning off

with a fresh glass of water, making sure to

drink several ounces every hour or so, and

more an hour or two before a meal, to help

curb your appetite.

BRAIN

POWER

The human brain relies on proper hydration

in order to function optimally. Research

shows that dehydration can affect one’s focus

and impair short-term memory function

and the recall of long-term memory. Our

bodies are constantly losing water. So when

you feel like your brain power is struggling,

water should be your first go-to solution.

grapefruit

Consuming grapefruit not only is

hydrating but increases energy levels,

aids in skin rejuvenation, improves

eyesight and metabolism, helps build

stronger nails and better hair, and is

beneficial in many additional ways.

orange

Oranges are rich with water (a medium

orange provides 4 ounces of water).

They are high in vitamin C and supply

nutrients such as potassium and folate;

a great antioxidant and source of fiber,

and helps in collagen production,

boosts the immune system and aids in

iron absorption.

lime

Loaded with nutrients, limes are

known to help boost immunity, aid

in iron absorption and promote

healthy skin, among others. This sour

yet fresh fruit is a great addition to a

variety of drinks, especially water.
