Welcome Autumn and the

Changes it Brings

CLEAN ENERGY

for a

CLEAN WORLD

And just like that, those

carefree summer days have come to an end.

It’s time to allow the return of routine and

the hustle and bustle of early mornings now

that school’s back in session. Even with the

busyness—and added stress—this time of

year can bring, it also carries with it comfort,

knowing our children have the opportunity

to experience a positive environment for

learning and discovery, surrounded by the

familiar faces of friends, classmates and

teachers, filling in time with sports, music,

theater, and other extracurriculars they

so enjoy.

As the seasons change, and summer turns to

fall, this time of year offers its own beauty and

experiences. Though you might not be getting

out on the water now, there’s still much to

enjoy here in the Northwest. All you have

to do is step outside and take in the natural

changes that are occurring, as the leaves

change color, the air cools, and the sun rises

later and sets earlier. We can slow down just

a bit, as the tourist season dissipates. This

is the time for locals to enjoy the place they

call home without the plethora of visitors.

Take advantage of dining at your favorite

local restaurants, visiting your favorite shops

and galleries, taking the kids to the park or

picnicking on the water.

This fall, don’t fall back into the same old

routines that leave you wanting more. Make

a point to experience things you may have

overlooked during the hustle and bustle of

the summer. Breathe in the fresh, cooler air,

embrace the colors that surround you, say

“hello” to those you pass on the street.

It’s time to welcome autumn and the changes

it brings.

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.

How to Identify, Prune and Remove

by JOSHUA NISHIMOTO

september/october 2022 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL

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.

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.

Inviting

light into

your home

New windows to

brighten your home

by RACHEL KELLY

There’s something about natural light that

is considerably more calming. Maybe it’s

because natural light provides for essential

nutrients for the body, boosting mood and

productivity. Perhaps it’s because natural light is soft

and brings with it warmth. Whatever the reason, we

need it. Of course, the best source of light is outdoors,

but weather doesn’t always permit outdoor activities.

The best way to get natural light indoors is through our

windows. Unfortunately, our windows aren’t always up

to the task. Some older homes were often built with small

windows to conserve heat—and provide little light. Many

homes were originally built with large windows, but they

are often single pane, making them inefficient. Many of

our home’s windows are in severe need of an update. For

a modern look, and a living space that you love to be in,

updated windows are the answer. Here is all you need

to know about updating your windows to get the most

of the waning winter light and best of the summer heat.

26 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022

26 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022


Why to replace.

Windows that aren’t working properly let out valuable heat, leaving

your home improperly insulated. Windows also play a valuable part in

allowing for air flow, making the house easy to cool in the summer. Old

windows, small windows, or badly placed windows make for a hot house

in the summer and a cold house in the winter. This means that your

home will be expensive to heat and cool. Replacing your windows will

save you money in the long run.

When to replace.

It’s often easy to tell when a window needs replacing. Older homes

originally installed with single-pane windows lose heat easily. Homes

with small windows that don’t let in natural light need larger windows.

If the window lets in or out moisture, which allows for the collection of

mold or condensation, that’s a sure sign that the window needs to be

replaced, or properly sealed. If you feel that your rooms are not getting

enough light, your windows are too high up, or if you simply want an

updated look to your home, it may be time to replace your windows.

september/october 2022 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL

27


Best window options.

The best window options for you may depend largely on the

room that the window resides. For instance, small bedrooms may

need vertical windows for optimal light, and kitchens may need

skylights for overhead lighting. You may choose floor-to-ceiling

windows for rooms that allow for a certain comfort or effect where

privacy is not an issue. Whether the window is fixed or operable

is up to you, and largely depends on whether you have light or

ventilation in mind for its use. Regardless of what you choose,

double-pain windows with locks are a must.

Window pricing.

Some counties have a rebate program in place to help residents

upgrade or replace windows. Some stores offer deals for

homeowners looking to upgrade their windows, in the hopes of

making a profit off of the bulk of work that needs to be done. As

for window pricing, it’s important to find a trustworthy contractor

to give you an honest assessment of your pricing options. Most

contractors will offer a free assessment in the hope that you will buy

windows through them. An independent contractor is your best bet

for smaller jobs, as they will be able to offer more flexible pricing

with smaller overhead fees.

Design styles.

There are as many different window design styles as there are types

of rooms. There are single and double hung windows, which open

in an up-and-down motion either just from the bottom or both from

the bottom and top. There are arched windows, bow windows and

bay windows (which all curve or stretch outward for effect). There are

windows that open both inward and outward. There are windows

installed for a purpose, such as egress or garden windows. There

are windows that don’t open, such as picture windows or glass block

windows. Whatever your desire, there’s a window to match.

Adding windows.

What to do in a home when it’s not a replacement of

windows that you need but additional windows? Windows

are one of those investments that are worth every penny.

Adding windows may improve ventilation in places of the

house that can be very hot (such as the attic) or very cold

(like the basement). Adding in an egress window, which is

ultimately very small, may save your life in an emergency

situation. There are windows for all types of spaces. The

simpler the space, the simpler the window. The simpler the

window, the cheaper it will be.

Hope for

ALEX

Fundraiser aims to make the impossible

become possible

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

To his friends and family, Coeur d’Alene resident Alex

Bouder is a determined 27-year-old entrepreneur.

His wife Kayla describes him as the strongest man

she knows—humble, strong and inspiring.

On July 27, 2021, just nine days after his first wedding

anniversary, Alex fell from a truss while working on a job site

for his company, Cutline Construction. “He says he knew the

moment he hit the ground that he was paralyzed, like a light

switch just shut off,” said Serena Caples, a close family friend.

According to supporters, Alex was then life-flighted to Sacred

Heart Hospital, where he found out the fall had broken his

back and paralyzed him from the waist down. “The doctors

gave him no chance of ever walking, standing, or crawling

again,” said Caples.

Since the accident, Alex has been going through extensive

rehab, visiting the Craig Hospital Rehabilitation Center in

Colorado off and on throughout the past year. His treatments

have been paying off.

“He can now crawl and has been able to take steps with

assistance,” Caples said. “It’s a complete blessing and miracle.”

“He wakes up every morning with determination,” Kayla said

of her husband. “He faces his everyday challenges with grace

and patience. Alex is so humble, and he’d never tell anyone this,

but seven weeks after he broke his back, he finished a 30k hand

cycle bike ride, joined wheelchair basketball, and competed in

CrossFit where he finished ninth in the world!”

“To know Alex is to love

him. If we could all be

half of who Alex is, this

world would be that

much sweeter.”

34 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022


Good News

He was still in the back brace for that hand cycle race,

and “everyone thought he was crazy—in a good way!”

shared Kayla.

“This entire time his attitude has been outstanding,

believing that with determination and hard work

anything is possible,” Caples said.

Now, with the support of his loved ones and the local

community, Alex remains determined to walk again.

Taking place on September 16 at 6pm, in the Jacklin

his accident was not covered under workman’s

important as he works for continued progress.

Through it all, his primary source of support has been

his wife, Kayla, who works locally at both the North Star

Caples said.

“We are hoping that this event gives Alex the means he

“This event is a symbol of hope for a prosperous future,

however that may look for him,” Caples said. “This

community never ceases to amaze me, and this man is an

inspiration to all he meets. To know Alex is to love him. If

we could all be half of who Alex is, this world would be that

much sweeter. If you could show love to one person who

would cherish it, I encourage you to show that love to this

The couple remains thankful for the continued support they

receive. “I know I can speak for Alex and I when I say we

love every day, it’s rewarding in

“When

ways hard to put into words,”

shared Meg Westrup, fifth grade teacher at

Hayden Meadows Elementary School and

Coeur d’Alene School District’s 2022 “Rookie”

Teacher of the Year.

“Let’s just say, I’m doing what I feel God created

me to do. To be able to establish a joyful,

respectful, and safe classroom community that

kids want to be part of is always what I strive for,

first and foremost. You could say my inspiration

for becoming a teacher was just listening to

my heart!”

This September marks the start of her fourth

year as a certificated teacher (and the end of her

“rookie” status).

“I was humbled to receive the honor,” Westrup

said. “I get to work alongside some amazing

teachers, but to be named as the overall district

‘rookie’ was pretty shocking.”

She described being “frozen” in surprise upon

hearing the news. “It was also St. Paddy’s Day,

so I was wearing all the things, including a

blinking hat,” she said. “Needless to say, my

students, family and friends were very excited,

and I’m overwhelmed by the recognition.”

Westrup had found success as a registered

dental hygienist making “pretty darn good

money,” but it was just a job. “Teaching is not

a job for me but rather my passion! Getting to

do life with my students and their families is

by far the most rewarding part,” she said. “The

classroom community is an exciting, fun place

to be. We talk, listen, laugh, and occasionally

cry together. To get to be part of their lives

and see how unique each student is is such

a blessing!”

She takes just as much pride in their academic

success. “Last year, my approach to teaching

felt more authentic. My students led their own

learning in a very powerful way,” she said.

“It’s very rewarding to witness students being

accountable for their successes and struggles,

taking ownership of their learning, then having

that hard work and growth reflected and

celebrated.”

After a summer of reflection, Westrup looks

forward to continued growth in the new school

year. “My goal is always to continue growing as

an educator and learner,” she shared. “When

I reflect on where I started that first year, just

trying to stay above water, to the confidence

and flexibility that I found last year, I’m excited

to see what this year will bring.”

Westrup takes a very real approach to her

profession. “I love what I do, but it’s long hours,

hard work, and takes a full commitment,” she

said. Her commitment to her profession and

her students is unwavering. “That being said,

I’m so ready for the next year as a regular ol’

teacher. The ‘rookie’ has left the building!”

says the most important life lesson he’s learned

because all things happen for a reason.”

He’s had to push through his fair share of

biggest challenge I’ve had in sports,” he shared.

“I have had some major injuries over the past

far, including what he enjoys most about his

favorite sport.

“The thing I enjoy most about football is being

how to be a leader, and to never give up.”

Colton plans to continue doing more of what

he loves into his last year of high school

and beyond.

“My plan for college is to have the opportunity

to continue to play football, and work toward an

education in business,” he said. “I’m interested

in that career path because my family owns a

local business, and I would like to learn more

to successfully carry on the family business.”

Colton’s father, uncle, and his grandfather

Myron own and operate the construction

business called Lake City Roofing and

In short, “Life is good,” Colton said. “Never

ENVIRONMENTAL

EDUCATION

Idaho Forest Owners Association

Education Foundation works to educate

and equip Idaho forest landowners

42 COEUR D’ALENE 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

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.

THE BOUNTY OF THE

SEASON

Join the Kootenai

County Farmers

Market in celebrating

the abundance of

autumn

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

The summer season may have come to a close, but farmers

market season isn’t over in Kootenai County. Events lined up

throughout the fall and winter will extend the opportunity to

enjoy the seasonal bounty of local farms, artisans and makers in the

Coeur d’Alene area.

The Kootenai County Farmers Market has presented fresh, locally grown

produce to the area since 1986, offering a selection of local food products

that changes with the seasons. More than 100 producers and artisans

comprise Hayden’s Saturday market and downtown Coeur d’Alene’s

Wednesday evening market.

After a successful summer, there remains a lot to look forward to in the

coming months, including harvest celebrations and the popular annual

Winter Market.

“It’s been a great year,” shared board member Susi Faville of Mountain

View Farm. “We have so many new people in our area, and they seem to

appreciate what the market has to offer. Most days have been quite busy.”

Now they look forward to the new season, with events like the Fall Fest

market on September 24 set to celebrate the bounty of autumn.

Faville noted the market vendors sell what they can grow with the local

seasons, relying on Mother Nature’s timing. “Fall brings an abundance

of produce of all types to market. It’s when there are reliable stocks of

tomatoes, peppers and other warm-season veggies,” she said. “The

weather is often perfect, and the light is wonderful. There are smells of

hot spiced cider and the warm fall colors of pumpkins and squash.

“It will be time for fall decorations, stocking up on winter squash and

storage vegetables, apples, pears, and more,” she added.

On October 15, the market’s free Customer Appreciation Day event will offer soups crafted from market meats and produce, served

with breads, pastries and more, all prepared by market vendors as a thank you from the Kootenai County Farmers Market. The

autumn market season will close with downtown Coeur d’Alene’s Harvest Fest on Saturday, October 29, from 10am to 3pm at Fifth

Street and Sherman Avenue. And while you’re downtown, be sure to get tickets to this year’s Apple Palooza, put on by the Coeur

d’Alene Downtown Association (CdADowntown.com).

Through every season, the Kootenai County Farmers Market offers opportunities to educate and support a healthy community.

Its PoP (Power of Produce) Club is a free program that uses hands-on activities to introduce kids to market foods and how they’re

grown. The market also accepts EBT cards and utilizes the Double Up Bucks program to help people include more fresh vegetables

in their diets. These programs are supported by donations from the community.

“We’re always looking for help, either with activities or donations for supplies,” Faville said. “We have a 501c3 organization called

Friends of the Market that can accept donations and give tax deduction receipts.”

The market is an organization of member vendors with a Board of Directors and paid managers. “Members are expected to contribute

work hours to the market,” she said. “We’re like a big family.”

Mark your calendar for the last event of the year, the Winter Market at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds on December 17 at 10am.

“We fill the Jacklin Building with our vendors, late produce like garlic, carrots, potatoes and cranberries, jams, pastries, honey, meat

and lots of amazing Christmas shopping from crafters.”

Stay up to date on market offerings by subscribing to their weekly Fresh Sheet, which highlights vendors, live music, and what’s

available at each week’s market. Read or subscribe at KootenaiFarmersMarkets.org.

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

products that keep aging at bay to advanced inoffice

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

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, it’s Botox/Dysport for frown lines between

the 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!”

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

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

Five ways to keep your

family healthy and

happy as you adjust to

the new school year

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

home-cooked meals as often as possible.

turn off the technology

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 handin-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.

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

62 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022

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.

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.

SHARING SIMULATION

Secrets

NIC Simulation Center hosts Oregon colleagues for health

science program development visit

by MEGAN SNODGRASS, NORTH IDAHO COLLEGE

NIC nursing students Mira Solmonson, left, and

Delci Hoehn listen to feedback from Western

University of Health Sciences visitors who observed

their mental health-care simulation July 7 in NIC’s

Simulation Center.

66 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022

North Idaho College’s Simulation

Center had a pair of human sponges

present for special simulations

this summer.

Visitors from Western University of Health

Sciences came to NIC’s state-of-the-art

Simulation Center on July 6 and 7 to learn best

practices for health science simulation labs.

Kelly Mack and Chancellor Jensen from

Western U’s College of Osteopathic Medicine

in Lebanon, Oregon, said their college has

committed to their own simulation center.

“We have created a sim lab, and the majority

of equipment is in, so now we are just in the

process of figuring out how to work it,” Mack

said. “I’m just trying to be a sponge and learn

as much as I can.”

Mack and Jensen spent two days with NIC

Simulation Operations and Technology

Coordinator Myles Larson exploring the

Simulation Center, learning equipment, and

even running a mental health simulation with

NIC nursing students on summer break who

volunteered to help.

Larson said the NIC Simulation Center works

closely with the college’s health sciences

programs and even invites working health

professionals to lead students in simulations

before they start their second-year clinics.

The Simulation Center not only facilitates

health-care procedures ranging from basic

physicals to heart surgery using manikins, but

also brings in local actors specifically trained

to work with students who are learning the

nuances of mental health care and relationship

building with patients.

Mack said starting a simulation center is a

big project but that visiting NIC’s Simulation

Center gave them a huge advantage.

“Our program isn’t going to look exactly like

NIC’s program, but having something to build

upon makes it a lot easier to digest,” Mack

said. “To see a sim lab up and running—and

running proficiently—I know it’s doable, and

I have people I can come to if I run into a

roadblock or have a question. I can really see

this partnership taking off and using NIC’s

center as a very, very good example.”

Jensen said the innovation and adaptability of

NIC’s Simulation Center and its faculty and

staff are impressive.

“With a 3D printer and enough time, you can

do practically anything, and this visit really

just reinforces that,” Jensen said. “I’m really

excited to what we can do with what we’ve

learned at NIC.”

HEALING THE

HOMELESS

Heritage Health outreach worker dedicates his life

to helping others

bY MARC STEWART, HERITAGE HEALTH

Two Feathers wants to put right what once

went wrong.

The Heritage Health Homeless Outreach worker

is determined to help people living in desperate

situations by connecting them to resources,

including medical care and other essentials.

“I’ve been homeless,” he says. “I know what it’s

like to be on the streets with nothing. I think

that perspective helps me connect with people

who need help. I treat everyone as an individual,

and I respect them, wherever they are at in life.”

Two Feathers helped establish the Street

Medicine program with TJ Byrne, a physician

assistant in 2014. The Street Medicine team

has grown, adding staff and providers for the

community’s most vulnerable population.

“TJ and I worked out of a car,” says Two Feathers.

“Later, we got a grant for a mobile clinic, and

then we outgrew that one and we got a bigger

mobile clinic that we still use today.”

If you’ve lived on the streets, there’s an excellent

chance you’ve encountered Two Feathers or

you know that he’s the man to talk to about

homeless issues.

“A lot of times, people will call our office ‘Two

Feathers’ office’ because he is so well-known

in this community, but him being here is

sometimes the biggest thing that draws people

to us, to begin with,” says Elise Cuentas, Street

Medicine clinic director. “Two Feathers has a

way with people.”

Two Feathers’ journey started in Phoenix. His

childhood was rough, and he was drinking at an

early age. Eventually, he was adopted by a family

in Post Falls. He battled alcohol addiction and

finally hit rock bottom.

“I went to prison for multiple DUIs,” says Two

Feathers. “I chose to live a different way, and I

got help.

“Once I was sober, I wanted to give back. I

wanted to help repay what was given to me. I

am not sure I will ever be able to repay it, but it’s

why I come to work every day. I want to make

things better for people. If I get a simple thank

you, it’s been a great day.”

Two Feathers is quick to credit everyone on the

Street Medicine team for impacting lives and

helping people.

“It truly is a team effort,” he says. “Each one

of us brings something unique to the table. I

couldn’t do what I do without the support from

everyone at Street Medicine and the entire

Heritage Health organization.”

Working with homeless populations presents

different challenges.

“Most people have alarm clocks to make sure

they don’t miss a doctor’s appointment,” he says.

“We’re dealing with people who don’t have an

alarm clock, so we have had to find creative

ways around it. Transportation is another

big issue for the homeless. We’re able to meet

people where they’re at with the mobile clinic

and/or other vehicles.”

Two Feathers works tirelessly to solve problems,

says Cuentas.

“He goes above and beyond to make sure he is

reducing barriers and getting people the help

and resources that they need,” she says. “His

life experiences have led him to become such

a kind, empathetic and compassionate person.”

FALLING IN LOVE WITH

NEW DENIM

Which fall 2022 jean style

is right for you?

Few things feel as refreshing as the crisp

arrival of the fall season, and a pair of jeans

that fit just right. This autumn has in

store a new set of denim trends that can

refresh your style, transform your silhouette, and

maybe even reframe your thinking around the

controversial return of low-rise jeans.

For generations, denim has been a closet

staple for all ages. From the first, iconic

introduction of the Levi’s 501 jeans, through

many variations of lengths, rises, fits and

styles from bellbottom to bedazzled, denim

has been evolving for over a century.

Jeans can be comfortable, statementmaking,

or edgy—sometimes all three

at once! They come in many forms,

and this autumn’s jeans styles present

plenty of variety and opportunity to

choose the style that suits you best.

No matter which fall styles you

select, a well-fitted pair of jeans is

a closet staple worth investing in.

1Wide-Leg Jeans.

High-rise, wide-leg jeans are at the top when it comes to fall

trends. They offer an ideal combination of comfort and effortless

style, and their breathable, loose fit combined with a tailored

silhouette offers a versatility that can easily cross from summer

to autumn. Wide-leg jeans quickly become the focal point of an

outfit to easily tie an outfit together with maximum wearability.

Style tip: Pair your wide-legged jeans with shorter tops to

highlight their flattering, waist-highlighting silhouette. For

example, wear them with fitted, long-sleeved tops and blazers

to maintain the silhouette and contrast their roomy fit. As this

trend encompasses jeans in all levels of “baggy jeans,” you can

choose the level of wide fit that works best for you. If you’re

easing into it, selecting a pair that is simply a bit wider and more

loose-fitting than your traditional straight-leg jean will be a

perfect start.

2Straight Jeans.

While straight jeans have been a classic fit for decades,

they are at the forefront of this year’s denim trends. With a

universally flattering silhouette, straight jeans can work well

for any body type, as they visually lengthen the legs. (Look for

a high-waisted pair to further accentuate this effect!)

These are the jeans that become your closet staple.

70 COEUR D’ALENE LIVING LOCAL september/october 2022

They never go out of style and are versatile enough to go with

anything else in your fall wardrobe. It’s a wear-everywhere

denim staple that can be effortlessly dressed up or down,

to look relaxed or trendy. Invest in a pair that fits well, and

you’ll be wearing them all season long. Lean into their classic

quality, and wear a long pair with the loafers or boots that

complete a fall 2022 look.

HEALTHY TIP

It’s Time to Shine!

Back to beauty basics

If you’re feeling that your skin, specifically your face, is lacking that glow, it’s time to get back to

the basics and restore your skin.

Wash your face each morning and evening with a gentle cleanser that’s right for your skin, and

make sure to rinse with warm water, not hot. Don’t forgo that daily moisturizer with an SPF.

Though the weather is beginning to cool, and the days are shorter, you still need to protect your

skin. Keep consuming plenty of water to keep your body and skin hydrated. And when sitting

down for a bite, be sure what you’re choosing is healthy, with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables,

lean proteins, and avoid processed, oily foods. Last, but not least ... get plenty of sleep! When you

feel refreshed, you’ll look refreshed.

Make the time to properly care for your body and skin, and you’ll exude that shine for all to see.

As the summer

wanes into autumn, and the leaves turn

vibrant colors in a big show before winter’s bare branches, we also change in preparation

for colder weather. Autumn is affectionately coined “sweater weather,” which prompts us to

switch out of our summer dresses and sandals for light sweaters and jeans. With the switch

in clothing comes a switch in our makeup routine. Thicker moisturizers that were heavily

laden with sunscreen are switched to lighter cleansers and moisturizers. Lighter colors,

or a barefaced look, are switched to brighter, more unconventional, shades to combat the

heavier clothing. Some of this year’s makeup trends are not necessarily new, and you’ll be

able to use much of the same techniques that you’ve used before. However, some of this

season’s trends are sure to excite. As always, it’s fun to explore new ways to accentuate your

look and individual style!

The classic cat eye will never go out of style—at least depending on where you’re going.

Along with the cat eye has come bold new color: oranges, pinks, neons, glitter, wet gloss

and shimmering teals. This year’s eye makeup has us looking ready to party, Y2K style. For

darker skin tones, warm oranges and darker pinks set a startling contrast. Shimmering

eyes and neon liners are sure to make your eyes pop. Especially if they follow the dramatic

lines of a drawn-out cat eye. Also in style for eyes are nude colors with black or floral

embellishments that resemble a stamp that surrounds the eyes (or just one eye). The

embellishments are shimmering or dark tones, whatever contrasts against the skin, almost

like temporary tattoos. Meant as a backdrop for creative accentuation, the eyes stand out in

an otherwise unadorned face.

For lips, the ‘90s are back in. Light brown liner with a skin-tone fill brings louder looks

down to earth. Lip gloss over light candy pinks for a wet look accentuates the lips, while

not competing with the bold eyes. Also in are dark purples and even dark blue lipsticks,

without liner to keep the look relatively soft. Those who remember the ‘90s will remember

Here to stay

is the neverout-of-style

red lip

how difficult it is to get a dark lip to stay throughout

the day. To circumvent this problem, a hydrating

tinted lip balm should keep the lips from drying

out. Also here to stay is the never-out-of-style red

lip, bright and on point for this year’s trends—but

not unfamiliar. On trend this year, when choosing

a bold look for the lips or the eyes, remember to

keep the rest of the face neutral. The bold colors are

meant to attract the eyes to one place, having an

artful effect rather than one that overwhelms. This

means little to no makeup on the rest of the face—

even going so far as to apply primer with little

embellishments to zap the skin tone of its natural

varying intonations.

On par with the ‘90s and Y2K looks are the

shimmering, over-the-top orange and pink blushes

fanned out high on the cheek bones and up toward

the eyes. This look is generally best on darker skin

tones, but icy tones work with varying skin tones.

Soft blue tones fan out from the eyes and feather

out onto the cheeks. Technically the color starts at

the eyes, but since it fans out to the cheekbones, it’s

also kind of a blush. There aren’t many rules this

year. It’s the same technique but bolder colors and a

blurring of the lines. When accentuating one part of

the face, let the colors highlight and the rest blend.

Whatever blends, whatever works, and whatever is

fun is on trend this year.

growth serum. For those with already thick brows, focus should be on filling in sparse areas. The look for brows is

easy and straightforward, keeping the morning routine easy—especially if going for a bold, fluffy brow and an overall

nude look.

Fall trends that look less like a party and more for the every day include the full natural brow, pink lip gloss, bright

moisturizers and facial oils, setting sprays, and the occasional body glitter. The focus for this year’s fall is for bright

skin, accentuated eyes, creativity, and a slightly wet look. For easy days, keep the skin neutral, using nothing but a

good moisturizer and a dark lip. This year’s looks aren’t necessarily meant to shine all at once but one at a time—

depending on what you’re wearing, where you’re going, and what kind of activity you have to look forward to. Keep

in mind that when choosing a look for this year, pay attention to what you’re wearing. Neons, pinks, coral, teals and

oranges are flippant and fun when going for a night out in your favorite black evening wear. But for daytime, this

year’s looks are subtle with a pop of color. More than anything though, this fall it’s time for fun. Makeup trends are

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.

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.

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.

Marathon

October 15 marks the 10th anniversary of

this beloved scenic run

by JILLIAN CHANDLER

With a combination of breathtaking scenery to include lake

views, horse pastures, beautiful forests and golf courses,

the Hayden Lake Marathon is truly one of a kind. Saturday,

October 15, marks its 10th anniversary, with all three distances starting

and finishing at Hayden Lake’s Honeysuckle Beach.

Attendees can choose from the full marathon, half marathon, quarter

marathon or virtual run. Those who wish to participate will need to

register before October 14 online at HaydenLakeMarathon.org.

“Participants of all ages are welcome to participate in the shorter

distances,” affirms Melissa Groom, marketing director of Negative Split,

which puts on the race. “Running with strollers is not recommended

in the marathon distance due to the steep and hilly course, but

running strollers are welcome on the half marathon and quarter

marathon distances.”

Those who prefer the virtual run can run their distance from anywhere

they’d like any day between October 9 and 16, and will submit their

results online at the results platform. Swag will be shipped to participants

after the in-person event.

This year, according to Melissa, they’re expecting 500 to 600 runners! And

they’re transitioning back to mass start lines, meaning all participants of

each distance will start together. “As in past years, we’ve had to transition

to rolling starts over multiple hours,” she says. “Bringing back mass starts

allows participants to start together, compete with each other and finish

during the hype and high energy of the finish line.”

For those who are not participating, they are encouraged to get out

along the course or cheer people on at the finish line “to bring back

that high energy support we’ve been missing the past years,” smiles

Melissa. “Having people on course cheering on runners is encouraging

to those running and may end up encouraging themselves to run with us

next year.”

After the event, runners will be treated to festivities around the beach

including a birthday celebration with treats, finish-line food, a beer

garden, and support from many surrounding sponsors including

Mountain West Bank, Humana, and Revolution Mortgage, to name a few.

In addition to the Hayden Lake Marathon this October, Negative Split

presents the Halloween Hustle Half Marathon, 10k & 5k in Coeur d’Alene

at North Idaho College on October 30. 2021 was the first year for the

event, which benefits the North Idaho Centennial Trail Foundation, and

had a turnout of 450 runners. “This is a festive event with people dressing

up in costumes for prizes from Fleet Feet Coeur d’Alene, treats at the

finish line (hot cocoa, cider, donuts) and a family friendly course with

being on the flat and maintained North Idaho Centennial Trail,” shares

Melissa. You can find the link to the event online at NSplit.com.
