CARING FOR OUR

TREES

How to Identify, Prune and Remove

by JOSHUA NISHIMOTO

10 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022


september/october 2022 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL 11


As the leaves fall in autumn

and new growth occurs in

the spring, it’s important to take the

time to inspect your trees and take proper care

and precautions to ensure that not only is your

tree healthy but, within this process, taking

proper precautions to ensure the safety of the

environment for everyone around the tree. This

should be your number one priority.

The first step to ensuring tree health is to inspect

the tree and then prune it. Pruning a tree

removes dead branches, diseased trees, and weak

limbs. When thinning, reducing and shaping

branches and limbs tiny enough to cut with hand

tools, keep in mind that your cuts are going to

encourage new growth. With that in mind, cut

limbs ¼ inch above a bud that faces the outside

of the plant. This will be the direction of the new

growth. Keep your cuts at a 45-degree angle to

prevent water damage and disease.

For thick tree limbs, it’s important to use the

three-cut pruning technique to allow a callus

to form. Properly pruned tree branches form a

callus where the removed branch was. The callus

is important to the health of the tree. Most tree

branches that are cut back to the trunk or the

main branch will require three cuts to prevent

damage to the bark. The first two cuts remove the

weight from the tree branch, and the final cut is

designed for the best callus growth.

When pruning, one must begin the process

as soon as the tree is planted to ensure a tree’s

health lasts the entirety of its lifespan. Diseased,

dead and broken branches should be removed

right away. There is no need to prune until the

first winter after planting. Regular pruning

throughout the tree’s lifespan reduces the amount

of work necessary and the stress on the tree.

One should be careful

when pruning in the fall.

While there is never a bad time to remove dead limbs from a tree, it’s important to note that one

should be careful when pruning in the fall. Pruning during a cold fall can introduce the tree to

disease. Pruning during a warm fall can encourage new growth, which can be damaged when

temperatures drop.

While there are many symptoms of a dying tree, here are a few that you might be able to spot

on your own: vertical cracks or seams in a tree’s trunk, fallen bark, a leaning tree (possible root

damage), or dead leaves clinging to their branches throughout winter.

What do you do if you spot a dead tree growing in your yard? Before you call your local tree

service company, there are a few visual signs that will help you out, as well as some tests you

can perform on your own. Inspect the tree’s trunk. Identify any cracks or exposed and smooth

surface areas mentioned previously. Trunks with severe damage increase the chances that you

might have a dead tree in your care.

Be sure to look at the base of the tree for any growing fungus. Fungus is often an initial sign that

the tree is dead. Fungus on the trunk usually means that the tree’s internal trunk is rotted out,

signaling that the only living thing in this situation is the fungus itself.

september/october 2022 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL 15


Your trees will thank you ...

And then there is the scratch and break test. The

scratch test is the easiest way to tell if your tree

is healthy. All you need is a small knife. Use the

knife to scratch or mark the outside of the tree’s

branches. A healthy tree should show lots of green

colors and be relatively moist. Do this test on a

few different spots on the tree. A break test works

similarly, however, instead of cutting open the

tree, you are breaking small branches to check the

condition of the insides of the branch.

Dead trees are a safety risk for you, your family,

or others in your community. A dead tree could

potentially come down on top of your house,

car, or play area, which is why it is important to

properly identify if a tree is dead and if removal of

the tree is needed.

It is generally a good idea to remove a tree if the

following factors are present: 50 percent or more

of the tree is damaged; the tree is located near

hazardous areas, such as telephone poles/wires,

electrical lines, or common areas enjoyed by

people; or removing the existing tree would benefit

other trees or plants in the area, giving those

healthy plants a chance to thrive.

If you have determined that your tree or a tree in

your neighborhood is dead and may need to be

removed, go ahead and contact your local treeremoving

company or contact a certified arborist

for more information about the best way to remove

the tree.

Taking the time to inspect, prune and remove dead

trees will greatly benefit your trees and the human

and plant life around them. Taking the proper steps

to inspect, prune and remove any dead limb or tree

will ensure your tree will open up the canopy to let

light and air filter throughout the entire tree and

allows for increased foliage, while decreasing the

chance of disease. Your trees will thank you for it.

Newly formed Boundary County Skatepark

Alliance puts skate park ideas into action

by CHRISTIAN WEANER

Several months ago, Boundary County Parks and

Recreation Sports Manager Nancy Schaffer did

something unordinary.

She walked out onto the pavement of Bonners Ferry’s

small, rustic skate park and approached the group of

kids riding around on their skateboards. The kids looked

puzzled. Adults do not bother them when they are at the

skate park. Ever.

But Schaffer was not there to scold them or ask them to

leave. She just had a simple question: “How can we improve

the skate park?”

“The kids were [amazed and they] started rattling off all

these ideas, and their faces just lit up when they realized

that they might get some support,” Schaffer recalled.

She asked them to write down their ideas and bring them

to her.

“A couple of weeks went by, and I didn’t get any ideas from

them,” Schaffer said. “And I got to thinking about it and I

was like, ‘They are just kids. They don’t know how to go

about this. I don’t know how to go about it, so how do I go

about it?’”

Schaffer started researching about what goes into fixing up

a skate park or building a new one. She put out a Facebook

post on the county’s Parks and Recreation page, and the

feedback was overwhelming.

“I realized really quickly that we had a lot of interest

but also there is a ton of support in the larger skate park

community,” Schaffer said. “They want everybody to have a

skate park. They want every community to experience what

it is like, and when they see somebody with something like

what we currently have, they are ready to do anything they

can to help you.”

Bolstered by a wave of community excitement and support,

Schaffer founded the Boundary County Skatepark Alliance

“I realized really quickly that

we had a lot of interest but also

there is a ton of support in the

larger skate park community.”

(BCSA) in May with the goal of raising enough money to

build the community a larger, safer skate park.

According to Marty Collyer, a Bonners Ferry native

now living in Coeur d’Alene, he and his friends helped

to build Bonners Ferry’s skate park in 1996. Since that

time, no updates or renovations have been made to the

less than 2,000-square-foot skate park, which consists of

several quarter pipes, a box jump, and a flat rail.

After her conversations with the kids at the skate park

and the initial Facebook post, Schaffer scheduled a

meeting to discuss ideas and began putting up fliers to

advertise for the event. The kids were so excited that

they began handing out fliers to strangers and inviting

anyone who would listen.

as one of BCSA’s marketing representatives. He said that

a boy who lives next door told him about the meeting

and convinced him to join BCSA.

Phillips is one of many who were inspired by the passion

of the young people who are so enthusiastic about the

skate park alliance.

“The kids sold this,” Phillips said.

BCSA’s first meeting was attended by more than 30

people. Since then, members have continued to share

ideas on the group’s Discord server, which is open for

anyone to join. According to Schaffer and Phillips, a

core group of six to eight adults make up the alliance’s

marketing, design, and treasury subcommittees.

One such individual was Jeffrey Phillips, who now serves BCSA and the parks department have also hosted two

skateboarding events with the help of Yousta Story

Tellers, a clothing store and skate shop in Coeur

d’Alene owned by Jason Olsen.

Olsen, along with his co-worker and fellow

skateboard enthusiast Collyer, made the drive up

to Bonners Ferry—bringing merchandise and

skateboarding expertise—to host a skate jam at

BCSA’s Go Skateboarding Day June 21. Olsen also

helped set up the group’s Skate and Music Showcase

July 16.

Both events had more than 80 attendees, including

skaters, their friends and family. At the Skate and

Music Showcase, local band King Friday played

reggae tunes as the skate jam took place.

“I honestly thought it was going to be a bunch of

skaters and maybe a few adults here and there,”

Schaffer said. “But it was everyone! Little kids to

grandmas, tons of family. For every skater, there were

probably like six people there from their family.”

Schaffer and Phillips both expressed their

appreciation for the turnout and support at the two

events, and they said they can see a difference in

the kids as well, who are trying out new tricks they

learned from Olsen and Collyer at the skate jam.

Schaffer acknowledged that the goals of BCSPA

are long-term and may take several years or more

to complete. However, the opportunity to provide a

safe environment for kids to have fun, meet friends

and express themselves is worth it.

“I think 10 years from now—no matter what

kind of skate park we have there—it’s going to be

unrecognizable from what it is today,” Schaffer said.

“Exciting,” Phillips chimed in.

“It is really exciting,” Schaffer concurred.

The art of teaching includes a

rollercoaster of emotions with

both wins and setbacks. With

over 16 years of experience

teaching, originating from rearing her

children and later taking a position as a

teacher in a one-room schoolhouse for

grades K-8 in Montana, Shelly Hoisington,

who currently teaches third grade at Valley

View Elementary, has been to the top and

the bottom of the teaching roller coaster.

What brings Mrs. Hoisington back is the

rewarding experiences for both her and

her students. “The experiences I have had

as a teacher are plentiful,” she said. “Some

of these experiences were joyful, others

hysterical, and some tearful, but all of them

have helped me grow in my profession as

an educator and as a person.”

Shelly recounted a special experience that

greatly influences how she begins her

day and makes the whole teaching and

learning experience worth the ride: “An

experience that comes to mind is one I

have daily. Children enter my classroom

each morning smiling, laughing, and

excited about the day ahead. When

children are enthusiastic about coming

into my classroom each day, I know I

have made them feel welcome and secure.

That is where my job begins and ends; the

teaching fits somewhere in between.”

It’s important for Shelly that children

are not only welcomed to the classroom

but that they feel safe. Supporting local

teachers who make a difference in the lives

of children provides them with a multitude

of opportunities for all children.

“Just like being a parent, teaching is an

extremely important and rewarding

opportunity,” she said. “The greatest

reward I receive as a teacher is making

connections with children and nurturing

their love of learning. When students feel

safe and loved, they take ownership of their

learning and are often surprised by their

abilities. Making a difference in a child’s

life brings me immeasurable happiness.”

While rearing her children, Shelly

experienced the love of learning and

educating. Creating an environment for

students to thrive is more than relegated

to her classroom. It happens in Mrs.

Hoisington’s daily life with her family and

the Bonners Ferry community.

“My family has been a part of this

community for many years,” Shelly said.

“I love being an active part of it. During

my free time, I enjoy spending time with

my family, traveling, reading, crafting,

learning, and laughing.”

If Shelly has learned one thing from her

experience in her years as a professional

educator, it’s “always be the best version

of yourself, and success and happiness will

find you!”

Student in the spotlight

by JOSHUA NISHIMOTO

ASHA ABUBAKARI

JUNIOR

As a student-athlete

at Bonners Ferry

High school, junior

Asha Abubakari has

already established a storied

career in achievements. She was

All-League volleyball and baseball

player during her freshman and

sophomore year, co-captain of

the varsity basketball team and

points leader for volleyball and

basketball her sophomore year,

state qualifier for track in 2021

and 2022, 2022 track and field

district champion for all four

events, and many more. But how

does Asha fare when the going

gets tough?

As a multi-disciplined athlete,

Asha was destined to compete.

Sports have helped her overcome

many different challenges and

continue to shape her and

prepare her for her next hurdle.

While she doesn’t know exactly

what college she wants to attend,

Asha has been looking at crime

scene investigation and possibly

nursing as her career path.

“I’ve always loved watching crime

shows and documentaries,” she

said. “I find them very interesting.

I feel like becoming a crime scene

investigator would suit me, and

I would enjoy my job because

it would be exciting, and I like

solving problems and mysteries.”

Whatever she decides for her

future career, and whatever

challenges she faces, sports will

always be a part of her future, as

she plans to continue her career

as a student-athlete in college

and compete in Division I track

and field. Asha may even decide

to do multiple sports in college.

Whatever path she takes, she

knows that the challenges she has

faced as a high school studentathlete

will carry over.

“There are two challenges that

stick out in my mind that I have

had to overcome in sports,”

she said. “The first challenge

involves other people. Dealing

with different personalities

and attitudes is something that

most athletes will experience. It

can be difficult to avoid drama

and successfully work through

differences with teammates.”

The second challenge involves her

as an individual, facing her fears

and doing her best to overcome

them. “Sometimes the pressure of

winning can create unnecessary

stress,” Asha said. “I experienced

this pressure during track and

field this (last) year. I had a

moment where I let the stress get

to me because I didn’t want to

lose and let everyone down.”

It was the encouragement of

her teammates and coaches that

helped Asha find the support and

belief in herself to succeed.

“I realized that you can’t let the

pressure get to you,” Asha added.

“You have to stay relaxed, believe

in yourself, and know that you’ve

done all you can to prepare for

the competition.”

ENVIRONMENTAL

EDUCATION

Idaho Forest Owners Association Education

Foundation works to educate and equip Idaho

forest landowners

26 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022


The state of Idaho—and particularly the northern

panhandle—is full of vibrant forest lands that

provide habitats for wildlife, water resources and

timber production.

Since its founding in 2016, the Idaho Forest Owners

Association Education Foundation (IFOA-EF) has raised

funds to support various projects that promote sustainable

forestry practices and educate the public about the beautiful

state that they call home.

“We want people to understand where they live,” IFOA-

EF Director and Treasurer Marrion Banks said. “We want

them to understand the value of Idaho’s forested lands and

the importance of managing them carefully to preserve

forest resources.”

IFOA-EF is an extension of the Idaho Forest Owners

Association (IFOA), which has been around since

1982. Initially, IFOA was formed to advocate for forest

landowners in the state due to taxation-related issues.

Over the years, the group’s membership and mission has

expanded and evolved to cover a broader span of issues,

ranging from forestry education to estate planning.

Two of IFOA’s charter members are husband and wife Kirk

and Madeline David, who have spent their entire adult

lives living in Northern Idaho and investing in the study

and practice of forestry. Currently, Madeline serves as a

director and treasurer for IFOA, while Kirk is one of the five

directors of the education foundation, alongside Marrion.

“My favorite thing that I get to do is helping private forest

landowners learn about and manage their forest,” Kirk

said. “Educating people about forestry and helping them

manage their forest properly—being good stewards of the

land—is what gets me up in the morning every day.”

Currently, one of IFOA-EF’s largest projects—overseen

by Kirk—is the foundation’s partnership with 9B Trails, a

nonprofit entity that aims to develop new non-motorized

hiking and biking trails in Boundary County.

IFOA-EF’s role in the project is creating interpretive signs

that are placed along 9B Trail’s Enchanted Forest trail

system. The foundation’s signs help to educate people about

the surrounding forest lands, pointing out things like rare

trees, thinning areas and new tree plantation plots along

the trail.

Another important partnership for IFOA-EF is with Project

Learning Tree (PLT), an award-winning environmental

education program designed to help educate teachers and individuals who work

with youth about the value of forestry in Idaho.

“We have to reach the younger people—the kids,” Marrion explained. “There is

so much bad information out there about forestry and its impact, and the timber

industry and its impact, and so on.”

The education foundation sponsors teachers to participate in PLT Idaho’s annual

Sustainable Forestry Tour—a four-day immersive experience that gives educators

a behind-the-scenes look at what forestry looks like in Idaho.

“Every year, the teachers are just like, ‘Who knew?’” Madeline remarked. “And

they are so enthusiastic.”

During the Sustainable Forestry Tour, participants tour high-tech mills, visit

forests, meet people who are passionate about forestry and learn about how they

can inspire the next generation’s appreciation for Idaho forests. After the tour,

IFOA-EF asks the teachers they sponsor to write an article about the experience

for the organization’s quarterly newsletter.

“I can’t think of one [teacher] that has come back that hasn’t said, ‘That opened

my eyes,’” Madeline said.

Another potential avenue of forestry advocacy that Marrion and the Davids said

IFOA-EF is considering is sponsoring workshops to educate realtors about the

forest land that they are selling to people who are moving into the state.

“[Realtors] are the people that see the new people coming in [to Idaho],”

Madeline said. “And we’d like to be able to start that education right there, when

people are buying their land, and we’d like the Realtors to know what it is that

they are selling.”

According to Marrion, many new forest landowners often know little about the

different species of trees and vegetation on the land they purchase. That is where

she hopes Idaho Forest Owners Association Education Foundation can step in to

educate and equip landowners about how to properly care for their forest.

In all of their partnerships and advocacy work, IFOA-EF’s primary aim is to

educate people about how forestry works and why it is important. In doing so,

the organization seeks to remind people that Idaho forestry is not only important

economically and ecologically, but is essential for the proper care and stewardship

of the land they live on.

“One of the driving forces behind what IFOA has been doing these past years

and what the education foundation is trying to do is help people—especially new

people who come to this area—understand where they live,” Marrion explained.

ARE YOU READY FOR

SOME FOOTBALL?

Players ready to represent

themselves, their team and

their school with pride

by JILLIAN CHANDLER

This season marks Travis Hinthorn’s 24th year of

coaching Badger football at both the high school and

middle school levels, and his fourth year as head coach

for the Bonners Ferry High School Badgers—his sixth

year with this group of seniors, whom he coached for

two years when they were in middle school. “They are a great group

of kids, there was a high school opening, and I wanted to continue the

journey with them in high school,” Coach Hinthorn shares. “They have

leadership, they've worked hard, they have put time in the weight room

and on the field, they have grown as athletes and people, and we are

looking forward to watching them have the success they deserve.”

This is a group who Travis believes represent themselves, their team

and their school well. They are not only determined athletes but

successful students in the classroom, leaders in the school, and work

hard in the community.

Hinthorn is joined by Badger football coaches Danny Swift, Andy Rice,

Alec Hamilton, Kenny Swift, Chris Sabin, Jason Trujillo, and Dave

Koon, all who have been coaching with Travis the four years since he’s

been there.

“Dave has been part of Badger football since I was a player, and I

coached Andy, Danny and Kenny in high school and Alec in middle

school,” smiles Travis. “They are amazing guys with huge Badger

hearts. We work hard, we work well together as a coaching staff, we

have fun, and we're working to help these young men become amazing

football players, students and young adults.”

Their philosophy is for each of these athletes to be a better person

and player today than they were yesterday, utilizing football to “build

relationships, pride and character within our kids—and we have fun

while doing it,” affirms Coach Hinthorn. “Not only do we want them to

be amazing football players on the field, we want them to be excellent

human beings in all aspects of life.”

Expectations are set high. Athletes are expected to come to practice

each day, ready to compete and work hard. They are expected to be

committed, push themselves and each other, and come with a positive,

coachable attitude. They are expected to care about the team, their school,

themselves, each other, and the Badger program. “As coaches, players can

expect the same from us,” affirms Travis. “We are committed, we hold

them accountable, we push them to get better, we celebrate successes, and

we push through struggles.”

Coach Hinthorn encourages the community to come out and show

their support to the football team this season. “It’s been a few seasons

ago, but I still remember Friday nights under the lights with the crowd

cheering, the band playing our fight song, and the community rallying

and celebrating,” he remembers fondly. “I coach multiple sports, and this

is my 76th coaching season. I know how important community support

is for all teams."

He goes on to say, “One thing special about football that is different from

other sports is the community aspect. So many people support our sports

programs in a variety of ways. Whether it's through showing up at games,

donating financially, flipping burgers at the concession stand, coming to

the Homecoming parade, football is special, and we appreciate each and

every supportive gesture.”

The coaches and their players are ready to ring the victory bell and sing

the Badger Fight Song several times this season, and they look forward

to seeing the community filling the stands to cheer them on. “If you hear

a train horn on a Friday night, don’t think there’s a new track in town;

it’s hopefully our team scoring a lot of touchdowns,” says Travis, adding,

“Go Badgers!”

PAMPER YOURSELF AT

BELLAGENTÈ!

Local salon offers services

to make you shine

by JILLIAN CHANDLER

34 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022


"I enjoy being a part of

our local hometown, having a place they can look and feel their best!

And I am so thankful for their support!”

Since June 1, 2021, Krystal Maas has been bringing her talent and

expertise to her clients at her beauty and nail salon in Bonners

Ferry—BellaGentè.

Krystal was 22 and a single mother to her 6-month-old son when

she had the opportunity to pursue a career as a nail technician,

attending the Sandpoint School of Hair Design. “It was the best

decision I ever made for the two of us,” she shares, adding, “I’ve

been blessed to work within this business for almost 12 years!”

Over the years she worked a couple days per week as a nail tech

while she and her husband Willie were raising and growing their

family. Once their youngest was 5 and off to kindergarten, it

was time for Krystal to decide her next step. With her husband’s

unwavering support, she decided it was time to open her own

salon—and that day, the two began their search for a space.

“We converted an old dental office into a full-service salon in four

weeks!” says Krystal proudly. “We worked countless hours into late

evenings with our children and his crew.”

As BellaGentè celebrated its one-year anniversary earlier this

year, Krystal credits her husband for being her biggest fan and

supporter. “He has been in my corner for nine-and-a-half years,

and I am so thankful for him,” she smiles. “He pushed me to be my

best I can be and shows his love for me daily and how proud he is

of me. I can’t thank him enough for choosing me to be his wife and

share this life together. We encourage each other to reach for our

goals and stand by one another to achieve them. He knew I could

do it, so that’s exactly what we did and opened BellaGentè.

The salon has quickly made a name for itself in the community.

The moment you walk in the door, you become a part of their

cozy family environment that Krystal had envisioned. “We make

sure that you and your family are comfortable and get the best

treatment while in our salon,” she affirms. “Bring your children

to our playroom if needed, kick back and enjoy a nice hot or cold

beverage, and we will take care of the rest!”

The salon offers manicures and pedicures, acrylics and gel sets,

teeth whitening, full-service hair, eyelash extensions and lash

products, face waxing, and tanning. You will find beautiful jewelry

you can purchase as well.

Krystal is grateful for her “salon sisters,” Lydia, Amanda, Bri,

Tasha, Nicole and Inga, who all work together to bring Krystal’s

vision to life. “Thank you so much for being a part of BellaGentè.

You mean so much to me!” Krystal is humbled by the Bonners

Ferry community, and beyond, who have supported her endeavor.

“I love the people I get to connect with each day, getting to know

them and their families. I enjoy the stories and laughs with each

appointment we share together. I’ve grown close to many of my

clients that I’m so happy to call friends.”

With summer fading away, it’s time to welcome fall and treat

yourself at BellaGentè, where Krystal and her team will leave you

feeling pampered and fabulous.

HOW TO NAVIGATE

COSMETIC TREATMENTS FOR

THE RESULTS YOU DESIRE

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

36 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022


Need to freshen up your facial aesthetic this fall? From athome

products that keep aging at bay to advanced in-office

procedures designed to restore your confidence in your

skin, the Northwest is home to aesthetic experts and advanced

treatments that can help you reach your cosmetic goals.

With insight from Northwest-based aesthetic experts and

business owners, you can revive and protect your skin through

the fall months and beyond!

Start with the following tips to enhance the youthful confidence

in your skin.

Schedule Your Consultation

“We always start with a consult,” affirms Sarah Hamilton,

nationally renowned medical aesthetic provider of Sarah

Hamilton FACE located in Liberty Lake, Washington, and

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

Aesthetic treatments are highly customized and specific to

each patient. Start by setting up a consultation with your

clinician to allow them time to assess your skin, review your

cosmetic goals, and provide personalized guidance.

“It really comes down to an individualized patient consult and

prioritizing what their biggest concerns are,” shares Brianna

Williams, RN and owner of Refined Aesthetics in Sandpoint,

Idaho. “Actively listening to what they would like to improve

helps me to hone in on what treatments and products will help

them reach their aesthetic goals.”

Bri uses consults to work with patients collaboratively toward

their goals. “Oftentimes, it’s as simple as incorporating a couple

of skin-care products in their regimen, and other times it may

be a comprehensive treatment plan with a combination of skin

care and in-office treatments.”

Because each treatment should be specific to the patient, “We

take the time to evaluate each person individually,” says Sharon

Lemoine, ARNP of Gig Harbor Medical Spa in Gig Harbor,

Washington. “Our approach is to keep you looking natural and

rested during the aging process.”

“Treatments and products go hand in hand. Products should

enhance your procedures and the longevity of your treatment,”

Sarah explains. “A good analogy would be comparing it to

brushing your teeth versus going to the dentist.” Just like you

maintain your oral-health results provided by the dentist, you

can maintain the results and enhance the longevity of your

aesthetic treatments with well-chosen products.

Serina Jones, LME of Gig Harbor Aesthetics adds to this

sentiment: “Having a consultation with both an aesthetic

injector and esthetician (different providers) is important

because it will give a comprehensive approach to full facial

rejuvenation. The most optimal results happen when you

combine injectables with proper skin care and skin-care

procedures. For the best results with your skin, it's a combination

of custom skin care at home and in-office treatments.”

Top Aesthetic Treatments

This year’s most coveted aesthetic treatments include the everpopular

age-fighters Botox and dermal fillers, along with advanced

therapies that can achieve more specific results.

“Year after year, Botox has been the number one aesthetic treatment

not only in our office, but nationally,” Bri says. “Botox is quick and

effective, and helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles for a more

youthful and relaxed look. Clients love it!”

Trusted treatments designed to minimize the appearance of

wrinkles and fine lines while enhancing select facial features, lip

and cheek fillers are “a great way to boost your appearance and give

you more confidence in your overall look,” adds Sharon.

What’s the difference between the two? Gel-like filler injections are

typically used to add plumping and volume, while Botox injections

are designed to temporarily block nerve signals in the muscles at

the injection site. This restricts movement in the affected area to

avoid the formation of expression lines.

Gig Harbor Aesthetics’ Laura Brougher, RN adds that when it comes

to what’s most popular, Botox/Dysport for frown lines between the

40 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022

eyes and crows feet, and Sculptra for volume improvement, balance

and skin tightening in the face. “Sculptra can also be used to help

smooth cellulite and droopy skin on the body as well,” she says.

“And lips! Everyone loves a rejuvenated (not too big) and smooth,

pretty lips.”

At Sarah Hamilton FACE, the MOXI + BBL laser treatment combo

has been highly popular as a “filter for your skin.” After gaining

attention for being a Kim Kardashian favorite, the laser treatment

combo has stayed popular for its ability to brighten skin, improve

sun damage, boost texture, reduce fine lines, and banish brown

spots and redness.

“Our aesthetic nurse Brittany actually has trained her Beverly Hills

doctor and his team on how to use laser devices,” Sarah shares. “It

really is like a laser filter for your skin.”

In addition to laser therapy, microneedling is a popular light

therapy for evening out skin tone.

“One of my favorite treatment combinations includes

microneedling with radiofrequency (Morpheus 8) with intense

pulse light therapy,” Bri says. “This combination removes pigment

on the skin from age spots and sun damage, while stimulating new

collagen production for skin tightening. The treatments can be

performed during the same appointment, so there is one healing

time, and the results are impactful!”


“Products should

enhance your

procedures and the

longevity of your

treatment.”

The Anti-Aging Trifecta

What can you do from home to provide daily protection for your skin? Northwest experts are in agreement

that every at-home regimen should include sun protection.

“The trifecta for anti-aging is retinoid, an antioxidant, and sunscreen,” according to Sarah. “Sunscreen in your

makeup doesn’t count—get a physical mineral blocker to protect against aging rays.”

“That trio helps nearly everyone who is wanting to age gracefully and protect their skin from free-radicals and

sun exposure, while also increasing cell turnover to prevent the signs of aging,” Bri confirms. “Sun protection

is imperative to protect the skin from premature signs of aging, as well as skin cancer, and to protect the

investment of in-office treatments like Botox, dermal fillers and laser services.”

Hydrate Your Skin

Often, hydrated skin is glowing, healthy skin. In addition to keeping up with water intake and hydrating

foods, select products and treatments can enhance your skin's hydrated glow.

“Skin Media HA Rejuvenating Hydrator is an awesome way to give your skin a drink of water,” affirms Sharon.

“Z.O. Growth Serum reduces fine lines and skin damage. It’s the best overall repair treatment out there.”

Some spas will offer hydration treatment directly in-office. Gig Harbor Medical Spa offers in-office hydration

systems that can provide patients with a quick pick-me-up during their visit. “We love our hydration

capabilities—we can treat from the inside out!”

Find Your Best Aesthetic Regimen

Cosmetic care is highly customizable to each patient and the results they want to achieve. Both expertly

delivered treatments and thoughtfully chosen skin-care products can help!

Consider your aesthetic goals, time frame, and budget, then consult an expert for guidance toward the

treatments and products that could best benefit you. From Western Washington to North Idaho, the Northwest

is home to a long list of cosmetic professionals ready to help you achieve the glowing results you’re seeking!

“The end goal is simple,” affirms Laura. “A balanced, refreshed and rejuvenated face with restored volume and

glowing skin. The patients feel so happy and confident; it always makes our day!”

STRONG

—as a Family

Five ways to keep your

family healthy and

happy as you adjust to

the new school year

by CHRISTIAN WEANER

42 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022


Summer has come to an end and a new school year is

upon us once again.

A new year means new beginnings for your children,

whether they are heading off to pre-K for the first time

this year or entering their senior year of high school. But

a new school year also brings new opportunities for the

whole family to develop healthy rhythms and routines

that will define the next nine months of early mornings,

packed lunches and extracurricular activities.

So, I’d like to make a few suggestions—five, to be exact—

that will help your family stay happy and healthy together

throughout this new school year.

Eat healthy (and local!) together.

With the kids off at school during the

day, evening meal times provide an

important opportunity for your family

to connect and create healthy eating

habits together.

Studies show that children and

adolescents’ eating habits are largely

shaped by their family. One 2017

study from the International Journal

of Environmental Research and Public

Health found that better diet quality

and regular family meals improves

overall family satisfaction.

If possible, try to have at least one meal

per day where the whole family can eat

together distraction-free.

Also, as parents or guardians, it is

essential to model healthy eating

habits for your children. Give your

kids healthy snack options, like fruits

or vegetables, that are as easy to access

as other sugary or salty snacks.

For example, instead of having cereal

or crackers sitting around, try leaving

fresh apples and oranges on the

counter or placing small bags of carrot

sticks in the fridge for kids to grab

when they are hungry.

Another way to support healthy eating

habits in your family is by shopping

locally for produce and making homecooked

meals as often as possible.

For those living in North Idaho and Eastern Washington,

Idaho Food Works has a number of helpful tools to help

you find locally sourced food options in your area. You

can use their “Taste of Home” tool to find local farms,

community gardens and retailers, or check out their

seasonal recipes to get inspired this fall.

Turn OFF the technology. Another helpful routine that

goes hand-in-hand with family mealtimes is reducing

screen time as a family. With the increased use of

technology during the school and workday, kids (and

adults) need a break from media consumption.

turn off the technology

According to the CDC, children between the ages of 8 and 18 spend

an average of 7.5 hours per day in front of a screen. It goes without

saying that statistics like this have a myriad of potential negative

consequences for children, including sleep problems, academic

struggles and poor self-esteem.

Therefore, choose to make your evenings technology-free, or at least

limit your family’s screen time to two hours or less per day. Turning

off your electronics will help your family connect with one another

and learn how to have fun without needing digital entertainment.

The importance of family fitness. Once you cut back on your media

consumption, your family will have more time for building other

healthy habits together, like exercising every day.

This school year, find time in your family’s daily routine for 30 minutes

or an hour of family play time. Consider some enjoyable family fitness

activities, like playing tag or hopscotch with your younger children or

riding bikes and shooting basketball with your older kids.

Making time to stay active can help you set and achieve health and

fitness goals as a family. Maybe your family will plan to stay active

this fall in order to run or walk in your local turkey trot race together

in November?

Think of some ideas that might work for your family and be creative!

The important thing is that you, your spouse and your children can

enjoy your time being active together.

Sleep is SUPER important. As I am sure you are already well aware, a

consistent sleep schedule is paramount for increased energy, creativity

and happiness in adults and children alike.

46 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022

If your family’s sleep habits were stretched or adapted during the

summertime, I would recommend getting back to a normal routine

as soon as possible this school year.

A recent University of Washington article suggests that teenagers

need nine to 10 hours of sleep per night, while school-aged children

require 10 or more. And of course, do not neglect your own sleep

routine either.

It’s tempting to want to stay up late and unwind after the kids go to

bed, but remember that the recommended sleep time for adults is

seven to eight hours. Modeling healthy sleep hygiene is important as

a parent or guardian. Not to mention that the extra shuteye will give

you an added boost to help get you through the afternoon lull without

needing that third cup of coffee.

Make memories that matter. If you have not noticed, most of these

healthy family habits are all correlated and interconnected in one way

or another—and that is on purpose!

Creating rhythms and routines that lead to a healthier and happier

family is not so much about the specific actions as it is about

cohesiveness, support and encouragement. When everyone in your

family is on board with a few simple initiatives like these, everyone

will be encouraged to learn and grow together.

So, my final suggestion to you is simply this: Make memories together.

Whether you are embarking on a road trip for the weekend or enjoying

a family game night, let every moment together be a reminder of the

blessing it is to have your family alongside you.

On Pins and Needles

Pain relief for muscle pain and movement impairments

by ALISON SWANSON, PT AND DANIELLE LARSSON

BOUNDARY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL

Do you suffer from myofascial pain such as aching/stiffness,

muscle tension/knots/spasms, tendinitis, decreased

range of motion, spinal problems, or repetitive motion

disorders? Are you looking to resolve the problem instead

of masking the pain with medication? If this describes you, you may

be interested in dry needling.

Q: What is dry needling?

A: Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a very thin needle

to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger

points (a tight band of muscle within a larger muscle group), muscular

and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal

pain and movement impairments.

Q: How is it different from acupuncture?

A: Acupuncture uses the meridian system or acupoints to determine

where the needle is placed; dry needling uses touch/palpation skills

to find trigger points to determine where the needle is placed.

Q: Is it painful?

A: It can be uncomfortable for a short period of time during the

procedure. Typically, it lasts about 10 seconds or less. This discomfort

is seen as a good sign, meaning that the placement of the needle is in

a dysfunctional area.

Q: What are the benefits of dry needling?

A: Dry needling can help abnormal muscle activation, improve

local circulation in tissues and nearby joints, improve collagen

production, relieve remote pain, may help with tendinopathy,

increase endogenous opiates (your body’s naturally occurring pain

relievers), has anti-inflammatory effects, may decrease sensitivity to

pain (peripheral and central sensitization), improve range of motion,

and improve strength.

Q: Who could benefit from it?

A: Anyone can benefit from it depending on if they have an

appropriate diagnosis. There are some medical conditions where dry

needling should not be used, such as varicose veins, pregnancy, or

recent surgery, etc. The therapist can help determine this.

Q: How do you get an appointment for it? Do you need a referral?

A: You would need a referral for physical therapy from your doctor.

If you or your doctor want or need dry needling done specifically,

let the rehab scheduler at Boundary Community Hospital know at

the time of scheduling, so you are set up with the correct therapist.

It will still be up to the therapist to determine if dry needling is the

appropriate treatment.

Q: How long is a typical treatment session?

A: Each individual will be different depending on the problems they

are experiencing. Dry needling works in conjunction with physical

therapy; someone can expect to attend a normal 45-minute session

of physical therapy with needling taking up part of that time. Dry

needling should be a temporary treatment and will probably not

be included in every treatment session. There is no set number of

treatments that need to be performed; it will depend on how someone

responds to the needling and the benefit that is noted.

Q: Is there recovery time?

A: There may be some soreness in the area that was treated. This may

last 24 hours but usually does not last longer than that.

Q: How long will the effects last?

A: The goal is for the effect to be long-lasting. Depending on

someone’s posture, mobility, strength, and movement pattern, this

could lead to a return of the trigger point or a new one evolving.

To schedule an appointment, call Boundary Community Hospital’s

Rehab Department at 208.267.3141 ext. 4276.

TABLE

DUTCH-OVEN

FALL BEEF STEW

INGREDIENTS

For the Meat:

3 lbs. whole boneless beef chuck roast,

cut into 1-inch chunks

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground pepper

2 tbsp. avocado oil

For the Stew:

2 tbsp. butter

3 large carrots

1 14-oz. package frozen petite onions, thawed

2 cups shiitake mushrooms, roughly chopped

5 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tbsp. fresh thyme

1 tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped

3 tbsp. tomato paste

1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

3/4 cup red wine

1/4 cup arrowroot powder

32 oz. beef broth

2 large bay leaves

1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen peas

salt and pepper to taste

METHOD

• Preheat the oven to 325˚F.

• Season beef chunks with salt and pepper. Heat avocado oil over

medium high heat in a large Dutch oven or a heavy oven-proof pot,

and sear beef on all sides until nicely browned. Do not fully cook at this

point. (Brown meat in batches to not overcrowd the pan and to prevent

steaming. If you notice that it begins to steam up, remove the excess

liquid and continue browning.)

• Transfer the browned meat to a plate and set aside. Leave the brown

bits at the bottom of the Dutch oven; don’t wipe the pot clean.

• Over medium heat, add the butter, carrots, petite onions,

mushrooms, garlic, thyme and rosemary to the same Dutch oven and

cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomato paste and

Worcestershire sauce, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.

• Add red wine, scraping the browned bits from the bottom using a

wooden spoon, and cook until reduced, about 3 minutes.

• In a small bowl, add arrowroot to one cup of the beef broth and stir to

create a roux to thicken the sauce.

• Add roux to the vegetables and stir to coat. Add additional beef broth

and stir. Add the seared beef and bay leaves. Bring to a boil then reduce

to a simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper

at this point, if needed.

• Cover with an oven-safe lid. Finish cooking in the oven at 325˚F for

about 1 hour and 30 minutes—until the meat is tender. Stir in peas 10

minutes before the cooking time is up.

• Remove bay leaves before serving.

• Serve with fresh thyme.

YAKIMA

VALLEY

Here in the Yakima Valley, the climate is semi-arid desert, and there are more than 300 days of sunshine each year.

The Yakima River flows through the valley as a life-giving force, providing water to support agriculture and a green

swath of trees and vegetation which lines the banks. It is such a sharp contrast with the semi-arid desert landscape.

Fall is a great time to visit, with local farmers markets running into October and festivals highlighting the bounty

of the season.

Craft beverage fans will love this area. Over 75 percent of the nation’s hops are grown in the Yakima Valley, where

you can enjoy farm-to-beer experiences with Yakima’s craft beer scene. Wine lovers can explore five American

Viticulture Areas (AVAs), including the famed Red Mountain, at more than 90 wineries throughout the valley. This

is where Washington’s wine industry began. The dining scene varies from high-end farm-to-table restaurants to a

James Beard award-winning tamale stop at Los Hernandez Tamales.

EAT

In the Yakima Valley you are dining straight from the source.

Chances are what is on your plate for dinner was in a farmer’s

field this morning.

You can’t visit the area without dining at Crafted. This farmto-table

restaurant takes the best of the season and crafts

delicious, fresh meals from locally sourced ingredients.

Multiple chefs with different backgrounds and skills develop

the menu each day, creating a unique culinary fusion not seen

in other restaurants. To truly savor the experience, have the

Chef ’s Menu—a multi-course extravaganza. The restaurant is

in the Old North Yakima Historic District, and there is plenty

of free parking in the area.

Caffé 11th Avenue is the place to go for breakfast or Sunday

brunch. Start with their famous feast in a glass, the Monstrous

Mary. Their signature Bloody Mary mix is combined with

vodka and garnished with bacon, ham, cheese, olives, celery,

pickled veggies and more. A unique dish on the menu is the

Breakfast Charcuterie that can easily feed two. Similar to a

European-style breakfast, you’ll feast on meats, cheeses, fresh

fruit, hard-boiled eggs, and Belgian waffles and croissants

served with maple syrup and blackberry preserves. Don’t

miss the delicious house-made sausage fennel gravy served on

tender buttermilk biscuits.

The Hotel Maison

STAY

This historic Hotel Maison is the perfect place to stay while

visiting the Yakima Valley. Its location in the heart of downtown

makes it easy to walk to shops and restaurants after a day

touring the valley. Built in 1911, this classic Second Empirestyle

building was, at the time, the tallest structure between

Seattle and Spokane. It has been lovingly restored, retaining

the historic details while adding modern conveniences. During

your stay make sure to check out the Hotel Maison historical

exhibit curated by the Yakima Valley Museum Director Peter

Arnold, and Mike Siebol, curator of exhibitions. It shares the

building’s history and prominence in the local community. The

Hotel Maison Gallery showcases local artists’ work through

their partnership with the Larson Gallery. You’ll find photos

and paintings of the local scenery including desert images as

well as the green lushness around the Yakima River.

Downtown Yakima also has a variety of chain hotels including

the Hilton Garden Inn, which is next door to the Hotel Maison.

DO

There is so much to see and do in the Yakima Valley. Plan to

take a road trip though the valley and discover charming small

towns with cute local shops and restaurants. Tour wineries

and breweries. The fall marks harvest time, so visit local farms,

which often have fall events. Explore the beautiful Yakima

Area Arboretum and take a nature walk among trees adorned

with fall foliage.

Take a Canyon River Cruise through the Yakima River Canyon

in a specially designed raft with overhead shade canopies and

bench seats with back support. There is even a table to enjoy

snacks while you sip on some Yakima Valley wine purchased

on your trip. The canyon is just stunning with basalt cliffs

rising more than 2,000 feet from the river and rolling desert

hills. Enjoy a gentle float while keeping an eye out for nesting

eagles, hawks, osprey and falcons. Bighorn sheep, deer, elk,

and other small mammals call the canyon home. You can often

see them in the afternoon coming to the river for water. In the

fall, the canyon erupts into yellow, orange and red when the

leaves begin to change. The water is a great place to observe

the fall foliage.

suggestions and detailed suggestions for dining, lodging and

things to do.
