Where has the year

gone? Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like 2022

came in with a bang and continued full speed

ahead. And now, here we are, in the midst of

the holiday season, when life slows down a

bit yet there is so much to do to prepare for

family gatherings and the end of the year.

This has been a year of natural disasters,

of war, of division, of inflation, yet here we

are, still standing, many of us stronger than

we were before. We continue to look to the

future, working hard, loving and providing

for our families, with the goal of doing our

part to create a blessed life for our children—

and a better world for generations to come.

We all have purpose, and we must live that

purpose, despite what is going on around

us. We must continue to seek good and do

our part to spread that good throughout

our neighborhoods, our schools, our

communities, and our nation.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes the cold, shorter days and

less sunshine. But, before we know it, we will be surrounded by a winter

wonderland. You can find beauty here no matter the time of year and

anywhere you look. Remember to always find the beauty in life. Even when

the sun's not shining, your world will be brighter. Wishing you, your family

and friends a wonderful holiday season.

Would you like to receive this issue and future issues in your inbox? Visit

BonnersFerryLivingLocal.com and sign up for our FREE Digital Edition.

The holiday season is a time to give thanks, as

we have so much to be thankful for: the roof

over our heads, the food on the table, clothes

to keep us warm, a vehicle to transport us to

and from work. Opportunities abound this

time of year to give back to those less fortunate

as well. If you can’t afford to give monetarily to

a local charity or organization, you can donate

gently used clothing and jackets to women’s

and children’s shelters; volunteer your time at

a food pantry/bank; go through the kids’ toys

and stuffed animals, clean them up, and find

a way to get them to those children who are

less fortunate.

Give and you shall receive. Blessings come to

those who assist others—in whatever way that

may be.

May we focus on what is important in life as

the year comes to an end and welcome 2023

with faith, love and hope.

The holiday season has our eyes turned inward

toward home. More time spent at home around loved ones has us

pulling out the throw blankets and piling on the pillows. This season’s

decor has us creating spaces for more time spent doing indoor activities,

making room for holiday gatherings and fostering a feeling of festivity.

It’s important that your space reflects what’s most comfortable for you.

It’s important that the place you wind down and spend the most time

mirrors your individual feelings, memories and style. Decorating for

the season means something different for everyone, however, there

are common priorities that just might spur your holiday humbug

into action.

During the holidays, especially during the winter solstice, it can get

pretty dark. One of the themes of the holidays is to bring light into

dark spaces. Lighting has a way of creating mood. The same is true

in our homes during the holidays. Switching out light fixtures, adding

new lamp shades or hanging twinkle lights from dark corners makes

for an instant cozy space. Plus, it’s festive! Bright lights are only

necessary while reading, otherwise soft light (such as what comes

from a fireplace) creates comfort. Since electricity is a fairly recent

invention, it makes sense that our bodies would prepare for sleep and

relax more in less invasive bright light. Candles are another inexpensive

addition to any space during short winter days. Hanging tea light

fixtures along stairwells and hallways makes the switching on and off of

lights unnecessary, which is especially convenient if half the house has

already gone to bed. In some cultures, it’s customary to place candles

in window sills to share light with neighbors during the holiday season.

This tradition doubles as a way to bring comfort in the home as well.

More time spent indoors means more activity, not less, happens in your

home. Wintertime is a time for rest and rejuvenation. Our space can

assist us in time well spent. It’s not the time for big renovations, but

Wintertime is a time for

rest and rejuvenation.

there are simple strategies that everyone can use to open up and declutter our space for the

holidays. If you have kids, this might be a good time to build each of them their own creative

corners in an out-of-the-way favorite spot, complete with its own light source, pillows, and

organization that works for their needs. Actually, this might be a good time for you to build

your own creative space, filled with things that both bring you joy and allow you to do whatever

makes you feel most constructive. Everyone needs a hub—a space that’s just yours. Otherwise,

everyone’s indoor activities go everywhere, and there doesn’t seem to be a place for anything.

Encouraging each person in the household to create their own space brings ownership. For

common spaces, pay attention to how you and others naturally do things. If there’s a place where

people seem to throw their towels, that’s where the laundry hamper goes. If a favorite family

activity is movie night, then maybe buy some extra oversized pillows that tuck away in a basket

at the side of the couch. This holiday season, bring ownership to your home by tailoring your

space to fit your needs.

Usually when it comes to the holiday color scheme, don’t choose anything that doesn’t already

work. Nobody needs a complete holiday revamp every year. If you’ve chosen pretty basic

wall colors, and generally your regular aesthetic is quiet, solid colors, there is lots of room for

color during the holidays. Colored lights to wrap up the stairwell, silver tinsel hung from the

windowsill, red bows over the doorways. Your tree might just be a jumble of color, filled with

local for the

Holidays

Easy ways to spread the holiday spirit

across Bonners Ferry this season

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

the season for giving, and in Bonners Ferry,

embracing the giving spirit is made easier each year,

'Tis

thanks to a community that celebrates supporting

local neighbors in need.

When there are community members in need, it tends to be

most apparent during the holiday season—fortunately, from

supporting local charities to donating time or engaging in

acts of kindness, giving back during the holiday season can

take many forms and doesn’t have to cost a dime.

And in Bonners Ferry, annual programs like Care-N-Share

and BoCo Backpacks' Christmas ornament sale make it even

easier to participate in local giving. Both organizations have

created opportunities for Bonners Ferry residents to give

what they can, whether it be time, resources, or anything

in between, and join together to spread some local joy

throughout the holiday season.

2021 marked 40 years of the Care-N-Share program, led by

Linda Lederhos. For decades, Bonners Ferry residents and

local companies have donated money and time to help the

Care-N-Share program provide gifts to children in need.

This year, the community began supporting its cause weeks

before the arrival of the holidays.

“We were blessed by the 9B Quilters,” Linda shared on

Facebook in October. “They donated over 70 quilts to our

program … They will go to bless so many kids this holiday

season. I can’t say thank you enough.”

Linda started the Care-N-Share program 40 years ago,

when she worked at the Panhandle Health Clinic as the

WIC coordinator. When she learned about a local contest

searching for the right placement for a surplus of toys that

holiday season, she found homes for the toys using her own

client list.

giving back during the holiday

season can take many forms and

doesn’t have to cost a dime.

18 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL november/december 2022


The following year, she was approached by local moms

to do it all over again. Without the contest supplying the

toys, she got creative—this time, drawing from her circle

of friends to gather donations of new and used toys.

The Care-N-Share program took off from there to become

a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Four decades later, their

mission remains the same: providing gifts to Bonners

Ferry’s children in need at Christmastime.

Children are provided with gifts and clothing, depending

on their unique needs. The program provides a need and

wish list for local parents and does its best to fill those

requests. Throughout the years, donations provided by the

community have been a driving force behind the program.

Along with many individual donations, the program

receives ample support from local groups including the

Bonners Ferry Rotary, Forest Service employees, Valley

View Kids, 9B Quilters, Border Patrol and Customs, and

many local individuals.

Without the donations received from local groups and

individuals, the Care-N-Share program could not continue

its mission. “We have so many groups and individuals that

help by donating items and money, and without them the

program could not continue,” Linda shared.

Local food distribution program BoCo Backpacks aims

to support children across Boundary County who are

affected by food insecurity. Each year, throughout the

month of December, they hold a fundraiser in the form

of a Christmas ornament sale. The ornaments are always

unique and handcrafted by local students.

Last year, fifth-graders from several local schools

decorated the ornaments for the sale. Ornaments were

sold and displayed locally, with all proceeds from the sale

supporting the BoCo Backpack program in providing

healthy foods to children in need across the county.

This November, BoCo Backpacks will begin preparations

for the annual ornament sale, approaching the fifthgrade

teachers in Boundary County to aid in crafting

the ornaments, determining this year’s venue for

ornament sale, and finding a tree to display them on,

shared chairperson Shirley Anderson.

Throughout the school year, they also run the BoCo

Food Program, which delivers food kits once a week to

children across Boundary County. Just like their annual

ornament fundraiser, it requires the support of local

community members, businesses and organizations to

make the food deliveries possible. With the help of the

community, Boco Backpacks helps battle food security,

not only through the holidays but through the rest of

the year.

This holiday season, look locally for your holiday cheer.

One of the intrinsic pieces of holiday magic is that it

tends to grow the more you give—and, undeniably,

part of Bonners Ferry’s magic is its people, businesses,

causes and community efforts that make a town a home.

With unique organizations that make it easier to come

together and help neighbors in need, the opportunities

are endless to engage with the local community this

holiday season.

Whether it’s supporting a local charity or nonprofit,

shopping from a local business, or simply spreading

the word about a holiday ornament sale or a toy drive

like those from BoCo Backpacks and Care-N-Share,

the acts that keep the giving spirit alive through the

holidays don't need to be big to make an impact.

Growing up in Boundary County,

Angie Schnuerle can recall

many fond memories of her

days as a student at Mount Hall

Elementary School.

Now, nearly three decades into her own

teaching career, Angie has had the privilege

of spending the last 15 years inspiring young

minds in the school she grew up in.

After graduating from Bonners Ferry High

School and earning a teaching degree from

Lewis-Clark State College, Angie made

a bold life decision: She took a teaching

position in the remote Alaskan village of

Nightmute.

“It was amazing,” Angie recounted. “I did a

bunch of things that I didn’t think I would

have been strong enough to do. I cleaned

and cut up a seal. I didn’t have running

water, so we had to haul our own sewage and

our own water.”

Eventually, after 12 years in Alaska, being so

far away from her family started wearing on

Angie, so she decided to apply for a teaching

position back in Boundary County.

“A week later, I got an interview, and I was

hired for kindergarten here at Mount Hall,”

Angie recalled.

Kindergarten was an age group Angie

had no previous experience with, so the

transition was challenging at first, but Angie

came to enjoy her classes each year.

“What I loved about teaching kindergarten

was [the students] came in not knowing a lot

but left with huge leaps of knowledge,” she

shared. “It was great seeing their growth.”

Six years ago, Angie moved to her current

role as a fourth-grade teacher, and she now

serves as the fourth-grade lead teacher for

the school district.

Aside from teaching, Angie loves going on

walks outdoors and taking pictures of tiny

things like mushrooms or flower petals. This

hobby, combined with her love for creativity,

led Angie to author a book series called "The

Friendship Fairy Club."

Angie’s books, written for a second- to

fourth-grade reading level, have become a

way for her to inspire creative writing skills

in her students.

“I do share my [writing] process with them

so they can see that when I ask them to

rewrite something, it’s not something that

I do just because I want them to be busy,”

Angie explained.

Whether she is out on a hike with her two

dogs or leading a lesson in the classroom,

Angie’s joy for life and passion for teaching

are infectious.

Students in the spotlight

Travis Hinthorn

had been teaching

physical education

and coaching football

at Boundary County Middle

School for about 20 years when

an exceptional group of students

came through his program.

They went undefeated in football

as fifth- and sixth-graders, and

then again in seventh and eighth

grade. When it came time for

these talented athletes to move up

to high school, the timing aligned

perfectly for Travis to stick with

them—the varsity head coaching

position became available, and a

job opened to be the high school

weightlifting teacher.

Four years later, this group of

students are now seniors, and

their middle school and junior

varsity success has translated to

the varsity level.

“There was an opening and I just

thought, ‘These kids are a good

group, they’re big and athletic,

they’re good students and they’re

high character kids,” Travis said.

“So, they have the total package

that works for football.”

Travis explained that the large

and talented Class of 2023—23

football players in total—has

done great things not only for

the Bonners Ferry High School

(BFHS) football program but for

the entire school.

On the football field this season,

the senior-laden Badgers have

achieved levels of success the

team has not seen in more than

20 years.

Travis was a 1990 graduate of

BFHS, and he can only recall

a handful of seasons in school

history that have equaled the

number of victories the Badgers

have accumulated in 2022.

And the year just got more

exciting! Led by Blake Rice’s

three-touchdown performance

and a stellar defensive effort, the

Badgers beat rival Timberlake 18-

13 on October 21. The win gave

Bonners Ferry its first undefeated

regular season since 1975 and

earned the Badgers a home

playoff game against Wood River.

Although he had good things

to say about all the seniors,

Travis specifically expressed

As he thought about the senior

Travis admitted that graduation

“It will be a happy day at

do? In 2009, she orchestrated Bonners Ferry’s

first Turkey Trot to the delight of 75 runners. She bought a

frozen turkey for the prize drawing and four pumpkin pies to

serve at the finish line.

“My Thanksgiving morning has started the same way since

2009. It's dark outside when my alarm goes off. And cold. I can

totally understand the temptation to stay in bed,” she says. “But,

can you not smile and be glad you're there?”

Each year since the inaugural event, the number of runners

has beat the previous year’s—even despite COVID. Last year’s

Turkey Trot welcomed 267 participants, and Carolyn anticipates

even more for 2022.

The 2022 Turkey Trot—the 14th annual—will take place on

Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 24, at 9am, at the

Boundary County Fairgrounds’ parking lot.

“Participants can expect an upbeat morning filled with great

VALUING OUR

VETERANS

VFW Post 3622 raises

awareness for the challenges

local veterans face

by CHRISTIAN WEANER

Awarrior does not return from battle the same as they

were when they left.

That is a reality that Michael Spurgeon, U.S. Air Force

veteran and senior vice commander of Bonners Ferry’s

Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3622, knows well.

“No matter which conflict you were in, you cannot just be in conflict

and then come home,” Michael said. “You don’t just take your boots

and your helmet off and become the same Joe Schmo or Jane Doe that

you were before you left. It doesn’t work—you change.”

Michael served in the Air Force from 1966 through 1988, making

multiple deployments to Vietnam during his time in the military. He

remembers the challenges of returning to civilian life after his years

of service. Along with the camaraderie the VFW provides, helping

others through those difficulties is why Michael participates.

“Having friends and meeting different people who have had some of

the same experiences I did [is what I enjoy the most],” Michael said.

“And then being able to help with some of the other individuals in

the county that, for one reason or another, aren’t coping with life here

successfully—those are the biggest two reasons [I joined].”

Michael grew up in Bonners Ferry but spent much of his service time

deployed overseas or on bases in Florida and Texas. He eventually

came back to North Idaho to be with his father, who was sick, and

ended up staying in the area.

About 10 years ago, Michael began to take on leadership positions not

only in the VFW but in Bonners Ferry’s Disabled American Veterans

(DAV) and American Legion posts as well. In addition to his role with

the VFW, Michael is also the commander of the local DAV and is a

quartermaster in the American Legion.

Holding these positions gives Michael opportunities to serve the large

population of veterans and their families in Boundary County.

“In all [that we do], our basic function is to help any of the veterans

in the area that need help and their families that need help if we can,”

Michael said.

“The main mission of the VFW, the American Legion and the DAV

are basically the same,” he added. “Their main function is to help the

less advantaged service people.”

Some of the services VFW Post 3622 can provide include loaning

medical equipment or driving a veteran to and from a doctor’s appointment in

Spokane. Bonners Ferry’s VFW also stays active in the community by helping

with events, sponsoring scholarships for local students and donating money to

Boundary County School District’s Alpha+2130 robotics team.

One upcoming event that Michael and his fellow VFW members are looking

forward to is the Veterans and First Responders Run, Walk and Roll scheduled

for Saturday, November 12, at Riverside Park in Bonners Ferry.

“This year, one of the retirees in the area is actually running that event,”

Michael noted. “So, of course, the VFW and the [American Legion and DAV]

will support as much as they can there.”

Michael said he hoped this event would continue to make people aware of the

VFW and the work that they do to help local veterans.

Many people are often unaware of the challenges that service men and

women face when they return home from conflicts around the world, Michael

explained, which is why he believes educating people about organizations like

the VFW is so important.

“Programs like the Wounded Warrior and other groups that are out there

have actually made the average American civilian much more aware of the

difficulties that someone in the military has to adjust back to [when they return

from battle],” Michael said.

He added that unless veterans have a community behind them that is

supportive, they will often slip through the cracks without getting the help they

need to transition back to civilian life.

When he first came home from Vietnam, many people did not pay Michael

much attention or thank him for his service, he remembered. That is something

he has slowly seen improve over the years, as the public becomes more aware

of the sacrifices that American armed service men and women make every day.

“I’d like to see the awareness continue to grow and to be able to have the civilian

world to greet these people back,” Michael said. “There are some beautiful

programs by different organizations that are doing that.”

“You don’t just take

your boots and

your helmet off and

become the same Joe

Schmo or Jane Doe

that you were before

you left. It doesn’t

work—you change.”

AN INTENTIONAL APPROACH TO

LEARNING

Dedicated to children and families …

beyond the classroom walls

34 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL november/december 2022

by JILLIAN CHANDLER


The road to establishing

9B Family Foundations is the culmination of 18 years of experience

with children in varying capacities, starting when founder and

owner Charli Turner started a daycare center in Great Falls,

Montana, with her friend Misty Filipowicz. “I wanted a job where

I could have my own children with me and be able to still have an

income,” she recalls. In 2010, Charli would take a job as a house

mom at Mountain States Children’s Home in Longmont, Colorado.

During her seven years there, 15 girls in crisis would live under

her care, receiving an education and a stable home, while working

through the aftermath of abuse, neglect and dysfunction within

their families.

Charli would go on to work at Northwest Academy in Naples until

they closed in 2018. “At that point, I really wanted to get back to

working with younger children—and most of all their families,”

she reflects. “I have seen how much heartache can happen in the

first 18 years of life, and I want to help families navigate those

early years with their children—and hopefully be able to avoid

heartache down the road.”

In January of 2022, she opened 9B Family Foundations. Providing

a non-denominational, faith-based preschool with the option

of full-time childcare, Charli has been blessed to have an

amazing team of people to take this journey with her; caring for

approximately 35 children each day (19 of those in diapers or who

are potty training).

“While rewarding, this job is high stress,” she says. “Most jobs are

8 to 5, but to accommodate a ‘normal’ eight-hour workday for our

families, we are open 7am to 6pm. Our schedule is very structured

and consistent, and every single activity is intentional. So even if

we are sitting on the floor playing blocks with the babies, we are

talking about shapes and colors, or animals and textures. If we are

playing with playdough, we are developing muscles and learning to

make the shape of our letters and numbers.”

What truly sets 9B Family Foundations apart from other

preschools and childcare centers in the area is the family resource

side of the business. “We work to help families in our community

find the resources they need from housing and finding a counselor

to purchasing food, diapers and clothing for their children,”

shares Charli. “Most of the time, people in crisis just need help

in a moment to get through a rough patch, a new move, or while

waiting for that first paycheck after getting a new job.”

9B Family Foundations offers free parenting classes, working

alongside and offering solutions for young families. They meet

with families privately to create daily schedules to eliminate stress

and discipline issues within the home, as well as coach families

through developmental milestones to understand how to best

parent each child as an individual. They teach parents how to

budget and shop efficiently to make their money stretch as far as

possible. In addition, 9B Family Foundations works with families

in “transition.” This transition could be a divorce or blending of

a family to adjusting to a family member who is returning from

deployment or about to be deployed.

Charli, who grew up as a military brat, is a graduate of Bonners

Ferry High School, and though life took her away from the area for

20 years, she was thankful for the opportunity to move back and

build a life in her hometown.

“This was my favorite place that I have ever lived. The community

is strong and self-sufficient and at the same time hospitable.

The people here look out for each other, and I love how other

businesses support each other. For our childcare community, we

have had outstanding support from teachers, doctors, clerks and

the trades in our community, who have not only entrusted us with

their children, but many donate to our Family Resource Center

with resources of their own. It is a tightly woven community, and

it is a beautiful thing.”

Charli is thankful for the dedication of her staff to make this

program the best possible opportunity for their kids and families.

“We love being part of this community, and we are looking forward

to seeing how 9B Family Foundations grows,” she smiles. “We are

looking to expand into different areas as the community grows and

has need for our services.”

Healthy

keeping a

Holiday Balance

There is a time

for everything

by RACHEL KELLY

42 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL november/december 2022


T

here’s a time for everything, even during the

holidays. There’s a time for family, and there’s time

for celebration. There’s time to decorate, time to

get out the door, and a time for those holiday traditions.

There’s even time for some of that spiced eggnog that

is only available seasonally. But whether you will truly

have time or not comes down to whether you are able

to keep a healthy balance this holiday season. But with

the holidays comes the pull of activities

that are sure to yank you right off track

to enjoying the season. There can

be so many expectations during the

holidays; expectations from others

but also expectations that we put on

ourselves. It can take a lot of effort to

keep one’s priorities straight. This year,

prioritize yourself, your family, your

work and the holidays in a way that

makes the most sense for the things

that matter most.

Prioritizing yourself is often the hardest

to accomplish during the holiday

season. However, for many of us, “me

time” should be the first thing we do.

Not because you should be selfish, as

if that’s even possible. Self-care doesn’t

mean that we have to sacrifice making

sure others are cared for. It’s just a fact

that if you don’t fill your cup, you won’t

have anything to give. Everything

suffers when we don’t prioritize selfcare,

especially in situations where

you may be maxed out. Sometimes

prioritizing yourself might mean

waking up 15 minutes early every

day to enjoy some extra silence over

your favorite hot morning beverage.

Sometimes it might mean organizing

your day in such a way that you can

have an extra 10 minutes at the end of

every day to just be still. Sometimes

it might mean going on a short walk

or making a point to take a few hours

once a week doing something you

love. Little by little, consistent selfcare

chips away at the stress that has

a tendency to build up. Prioritizing

yourself might mean that someone else

around you might need to adjust their routine, such as

going to bed earlier or making sure they’re around during

the time that you’ve hedged out for yourself. Sometimes

they might be upset about this (kids, this is you), but it’s

important that everyone in every household shares the

load of responsibility, so that each individual is cared

for—including you. This might take some conversation,

and it might take some compromise, but it’s worth it.

Doing things this holiday season with

those loved ones should be top on the list.

Prioritizing your family is probably next on most people’s list. Or

maybe prioritizing those that you consider to be like family. There

are just some activities and some plans that can’t be rescheduled this

time of year, and missing them would take away from joy. It can be

easy to under-appreciate those people closest to us, because we feel

secure that they will always be there. Regardless, every relationship

needs attention. Doing things this holiday season with those loved

ones should be top on the list, as they are sure to bring the most joy

this time of year. Usually, however, there is more than one loved one.

Many people find themselves split between many different familial

expectations from both sides. These activities can sometimes clash,

so communication is key here. It’s no fun if you spread yourself too

thin. Be sure to communicate what you can and can’t do for your own

sanity, and let the rest be what it will be.

Prioritizing work where it should be during the holidays often means

that not everything is done to perfection. However, it will be done the

best you possibly can do, and that will have to be enough. Making

money is all well and good, but it means very little if you have no time

to use it. Especially during the time of year where money and time

can be used so well. Do what needs to be done, hit your deadlines

and demolish that project while you’re working. But when you’re

46 BONNERS FERRY LIVING LOCAL november/december 2022

off, you’re off. If you truly can’t get away, turn everything off. Give

yourself a staycation, at home, and unplug from whatever pulls you

where you don’t need to be. This might mean that you might have to

cut back in some ways, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the

fruits of your labor. There is a reason that work is not prioritized at

the top of the list; it’s just not the most important thing.

The holidays are a time where we remember and focus on what is most

important. The weather turns, the holidays begin, and we invest in all

the people, activities and things that get us through the darker/colder

parts of the year. There’s a reason that the holidays are all stacked on

top of each other. This time of year, we all feel the need for a pick-meup.

The holidays are supposed to be a time of rest, encouragement

and celebration. That is, if we can keep a healthy balance throughout.

Keeping our priorities straight will help us to drop whatever doesn’t

fit, so that we’re capable of making decisions between all the different

things that pull at us this season. Being still and simply being thankful

is a much-underrated skill.

This year, let’s harbor thankfulness by giving ourselves the time and

the space to appreciate what makes the holidays so special.


HEALTHY TIP

Are You

Experiencing the

‘Winter Blues’?

Ways to improve your well-being

during the cold season

As those colder, shorter, darker days

are here, and will be for a while, it is

important to not let those winter blues get you

down. As we spend approximately six months

of the year without adequate exposure to

sunlight, this can lead to chronic deficiencies

in an essential nutrient—vitamin D3. Lack of

natural sunlight also leads to an imbalance in

the hormones cortisol and melatonin.

Here’s how you can better prepare your

body and mind for the winter to help with

seasonal depression: Be sure to take a vitamin

D3 supplement. Get outside early to expose

yourself to natural light (even when it’s cold

outside). Avoid blue light two hours before

bed to help ensure you get adequate sleep in

order to wake up refreshed. Prioritize daily

exercise. Eat anti-inflammatory foods. Open

the shades to let the light in. Brighten up your

home with color (think indoor plants and

inspiring artwork).

Don’t neglect your mental and physical health

this season. Make yourself a priority, and

you’ll see the difference it can make.

Managing and Preventing Diabetes

Easy tips and tricks to control your blood sugar

by DANIELLE LARSSON, BOUNDARY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL

Diabetes touches many lives and is steadily on the rise.

According to the CDC, one in 10 Americans have

diabetes and one in three Americans have prediabetes; of

those with prediabetes, more than 80 percent are unaware

they have it. 1 Eleven percent of adults living in Boundary County

have been diagnosed with diabetes compared to 9 percent of Idaho

adults. 2

Unmanaged blood sugar affects every major organ in the body. It

can lead to cardiovascular disease, stroke, chronic kidney disease,

blindness, poor circulation, loss of sensation in extremities,

increased risk of infection, and in extreme cases, amputations due to

loss of circulation and infections. Since a significant portion of those

with prediabetes are unaware that they have it, screening is crucial

if you have any associated risk factors; obesity, 45 years or older, a

family history with type 2 diabetes, physically inactive, ever having

gestational diabetes, or having polycystic ovary syndrome. However,

Dr. Polonsky, a diabetes specialist, said, "Diabetes in good control is

the leading cause of nothing."

These tips can be used by anyone to help encourage a healthy lifestyle

and help prevent the development of diabetes or prediabetes in the

future. Nourishing your body, managing stress and being active

throughout your life has a lasting effect on your body's ability to fight

off illness and disease. Mindful eating and increased physical activity

can significantly improve your health by managing your blood sugar,

reversing prediabetes or preventing it altogether:

• Eating a combination of fiber-rich carbohydrates, lean protein

and heart-healthy fats can promote more stable glucose levels by

slowing down the digestion of glucose and delays absorption into

the bloodstream.

• The order in which you eat your food matters. Eat your protein,

vegetables and heart-healthy fats before you eat your carbohydrates.

They will naturally help stabilize your blood sugar. Study results

showed that glucose levels were improved by as much as 37 percent

using this method; insulin was also significantly lower. 3 It is

important to note that saturated fats can worsen insulin resistance,

while poly- and monounsaturated fats improve it. 4

• Examples of healthy fats are olive oil, nuts, sardines,

salmon, flax seeds and avocados.

• Examples of fats to limit are fast-food, processed foods and

animal fats (meats, cheese, cream, butter, lard).

• Eating at regular intervals also helps the body maintain stable

blood glucose.

• Fiber helps stabilize blood sugar, protects your heart, helps

maintain digestive health, and keeps you feeling full longer.

• Increasing physical activity is especially beneficial after eating!

Start exercising about 30 minutes after a meal. Using large muscle

groups like your quads is most impactful (i.e., walking, using stairs, or

squats). Be sure to check your blood sugar levels before exercising; if

your blood sugar is above 300, postpone exercising until you can get

it below 180. If you use insulin, check after to ensure your levels don't

drop too low. Before starting or changing your exercise regimen, talk

with your doctor to determine what is best for you. 5

There’s no wrong time to embrace real food and optimize your

health. Incrementally making small changes in your lifestyle leads

to significant change overtime. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all

of the information out there, but you don’t have to manage it alone.

Boundary Community Hospital offers a Diabetes Support Group that

meets the third Monday of each month at 1pm in the Fry Healthcare

Education Building. For more information, call 208.267.3141.

SURREY

Surrey, British Columbia, is just across the United States border into Canada. It is one of the most culturally diverse

cities in the Metro Vancouver area. In the area known by Canadians as “the Lower Mainland,” it stretches from

Tidal Flats in the west all the way to the Fraser Valley in the east. The Surrey Spice Trail will take you across six

neighborhoods to showcase the vibrant and diverse foodie scene. Discover strip-mall dives to high-end dining and

everything in between.

Surrey is known as “The City of Parks,” and over 50 percent of Surrey is greenspace, which includes farms, golf

courses, parks, gardens and urban forests. There are so many ways to enjoy the outdoors. Head to White Rock, one

of Surrey’s neighboring communities, to enjoy views for miles and a large sand tidal beach. Stroll the waterfront with

its cute shops, ice cream parlors and restaurants. Saunter down the longest pier in Canada. With Surrey situated on

the Pacific Flyway, a north-south migratory bird route, the area is very popular with birdwatchers. With over 200

species of birds, it is easy to see why. Cycling is a loved activity, and there are plenty of hiking and walking trails

throughout the city.

EAT

The Surrey Spice Trail is a must do while visiting this area. The

diversity of food offerings gives you the opportunity to experience a

variety of international cuisine. You’ll find family owned businesses

sharing their traditional meals cooked with love. You’ll also find

well-known chefs at places like My Shanti, where Vikram VI works

his magic. The options can be overwhelming, so visit the Spice Trail

website to locate restaurants on an interactive map. Tapping on a

restaurant will give you a description of the restaurant experience,

photos of their signature dishes, and tips.

Chacha’s is a North Indian restaurant that offers a special dish just

on weekends. This very popular, bright, modern eatery will have

you feeling like you stepped into a Bollywood movie, as the music

and aromas of this unique cuisine envelop you as you walk to your

table. For an appetizer, try the Gol Gappay Shots. This darling dish

is presented in a miniature cart like the ones you would see on the

streets of India. A crispy, round, hollow shell known as a puri is

stuffed with potatoes, chickpeas and chutneys. You take it and add

the tangy-flavored water it is served with and pop the whole thing

into your mouth. So fun. Order the Paneer Kulcha, only available

on weekends. Kulcha is a special seasoned Indian flatbread that is

stuffed (choose from a variety of meats or veggies) and crispy. The

dish is served with chickpeas and raita, a classic Indian yogurt sauce.

STAY

The Civic Hotel in downtown Surrey is part of the Autograph

Collection for Marriott and is a gorgeous hotel in a central location

for exploring the area. The rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows

that provide panoramic city views. After a busy day exploring, head

to the heated rooftop pool to relax. It is just steps away from the

SkyTrain, which provides transportation in the Greater Vancouver

area. The hotel is walking distance to Holland Park. Make sure to

view local artist Glen Anderson’s Art Nouveau-style water fountain.

Seasonally enjoy the gardens, which start with spring tulips and then

summer roses. Shop at the Central City Shopping Center, a large

mall that is also walking distance from the Civic Hotel.

Travel

Head out to Mud Bay Park to access

the Boundary Bay Trail. This lovely,

scenic walk will take you along the

shores of Boundary Bay.

Head out to Mud Bay Park to access the Boundary Bay Trail.

This lovely, scenic walk will take you along the shores of

Boundary Bay. This area is one of the most important bird

areas in Canada and the best place to see shorebirds. Take

the 3-kilometers-long nature trail (you can find a brochure at

the website). Look for seals at high tide in the waves. At low

tide, birds flock to the mudflats and eelgrass meadows to dine.

Hundreds of thousands of birds visit throughout the year;

some arrive from as far away as South America. If you want

to hike further or do a bike ride, the trail links up with the

Dyke Trail for another 20 kilometers of shoreline ending in

Boundary Bay Regional Park.

Take some time to explore historic Cloverdale. This is Surrey’s

birthplace, where it started out as a small farm community in

1870. Downtown Cloverdale has a business district with more

than 200 shops and restaurants. Access a walking and driving

tour brochure from the website. Its small-town charm and

historic features were featured in the TV show “Smallville,”

and it is a popular filming location.
