Casey Sonnier, Newberg Farmers MarketFor centuries, farmers markets were the original shopping experience. Stalls would line streets, manned by eager farmers seeking to share their abundance with their communities. The advent of the industrial age and supermarket hailed the decline of farmers markets in the U.S., until suddenly, they made a remarkable resurgence. Our farmers know exactly why the demand for the highest-quality produce has made a comeback.

Mark Fery and Liz Turner from Saint Joseph Acres know. Every Wednesday, they make the cornucopia from their farm available to the public for purchase. They have shallots, Lorz Italian garlic, onions, corn, Purple Viking potatoes, melons, squash, peppers, tomatoes, and so much more. Their stated mission is to “grow good food, without chemicals, and make it accessible for people.” Mark remarked that “the people of Newberg are welcoming.” Liz said she finds it really rewarding when she learns what her customers make with the produce they buy.

Jim and Bonnie Steele from Steele Plants have been coming to the Newberg market almost since its inception. They grow their fruits and vegetables on a residential farm in Aloha, on less than a half-acre. “We like to give people good food, grown naturally,” Bonnie said, “and we like to see more people shop locally.” They begin the market season with plant starts for customers to use in their home gardens. As the season goes on, they bring the rest of their produce: Corn, ghost peppers, serrano peppers, grapes, tomatillos, cucumbers, pumpkins and so much more.

Angela Wu, DPT, MPH, Chehalem Physical Therapy Inc. Patients with low back pain (LBP) are often prescribed core-strengthening exercises as part of their physical therapy. A thorough history including abdominal surgeries, birth history, and bowel and bladder symptoms may also be collected. “The back and abdominal muscles are like a basket,” said Angela. “Your back is the back portion of the basket, the abdominal muscles are the front, and the pelvic floor makes up the bottom of the basket. If you have problems with your abdomen or pelvic floor, the basket can become lopsided—which often manifests itself as low back pain.”

People with sedentary jobs or poor posture are particularly prone to lower back pain, as are older patients, patients with a history of abdominal surgeries and pregnant or postpartum women. But you don’t have to be in poor physical shape to have lower back pain. “We also see a large population of athletes with it. They are really strong, but need help activating and engaging the right muscles. Low back pain can happen to anyone. It is often a result of our bodies compensating for weak or tight core musculature,” Angela said.

Angela and her colleagues at Chehalem Physical Therapy work with each patient to develop a specialized program to carefully increase abdominal and hip strength while managing back pain. However, “we keep away from sit-ups because they place more strain on the lower back,” Angela said. “We work with strengthening exercises that focus on stabilizing the lumbar spine and pelvis.”

If you want to invest in your back and body as a whole, work on the core strength…of the entire basket.

Stacy Bunke, French Prairie GardensIn 2011, Emily Pohlschneider-Edwards, beloved wife, daughter and mother, succumbed in her fight against a rare form of cancer called gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). To honor her memory, French Prairie Gardens hosts a yearly event called the Fight for Your Life 5K to raise funds for the nonprofit Em’s Fight.

The foundation, which the Pohlschneider family started in honor of Em, supports local women who are struggling in their own fight against rare cancers. Although the fight will always be difficult, Em’s Fight will help with the cost of treatments or transportation to seek a specialist in the field, childcare, rent, groceries or wigs, or even a trip to spend some wonderful time with their families.

The Fight For Your Life 5K winds through dirt roads throughout the farm where Emily grew up and worked the fields. Joggers and walkers are also welcome, and kids aged five to ten are invited to compete in the 800-meter Kids Dash.

After the race is over, registered race participants receive twelve free activity tickets to French Prairie Gardens’ Pumpkin Patch. There, everyone can enjoy popular attractions like the tractor wagon ride, hay maze, petting farm and hand-pump duck races—not to mention the famous Pigtucky Derby Pig Races and of course, picking Halloween pumpkins in the pumpkin patch.

Finish up your full day of farm fun with a locally brewed Oregon beer and deep-fried zucchini, corn dogs and pulled pork sandwiches, or with an Umpqua ice cream milkshake and a stroll through the gardens. To sign up for the race, visit fightforyourlife5k.com or donate at emsfight.org.

Branden Thompson, Chehalem Glenn Golf CourseRecall the last time you amazed your playing partners with a shot that went right where you wanted it to go. For most of you that doesn’t happen often, but the great allure of golf is that it does happen periodically. What happened prior to that shot that was different? I guarantee that most of the time, you were thoroughly engaged in the process. You were able to see the shot before you hit it. You were almost able to feel the swing that would produce the shot. You were confident going into the shot.

So how do you make that perfect shot happen more consistently? Include all these elements in your pre-shot routine.

First, visualize the shot you want to hit. This has to be the first step. Develop a clear mental picture of the flight path that the ball must follow to get to your intended target. Commit to that shot and “see it” completely before you do it.

Second, feel the shot. Make one or two rehearsal swings before you address the ball. Notice that I said “rehearsal swings”, and not “practice swings”. Make these swings have a purpose. Rehearse the move that corresponds to the ball flight that you visualized. Most golfers make mindless practice swings with no point and no benefit.

Finally, be confident. The adage “Fake it ‘til you make it” is correct. You have a lot better chance of pulling of the shot with good body language. Walk tall and proud as you approach the ball, and enjoy the great shot that follows.

Mike McBride, Farmers InsuranceYour college-aged son or daughter might have left the nest, but that doesn’t mean that he or she stops needing your help—mainly, to carry thousands of dollars’ worth of bikes, computers, furniture, mini-refrigerators and sound systems into their first home away from home. But do you really need renter’s insurance? Farmers Insurance can help you decide on the appropriate coverage.

First, if you have a homeowner’s policy, renter’s insurance might not be necessary. If your homeowner’s policy protects a value of over $100,000, 10% of that policy extends to your son’s or daughter’s personal property while living in an off-campus apartment.

However, renter’s insurance is more comprehensive than many realize. An affordable policy—around $12-15 in premiums per month—covers medical costs for both your child and others. For example, if your son has a friend stay the night and he breaks a wrist while tripping on the stairs, the policy will cover medical costs for the visitor.

That same policy also covers accidents that occur off the property. Say your child stops in a coffee shop and spills a too-hot cup on someone else standing in line, or if he or she accidentally knocks over and injures an elderly neighbor in the grocery store. Renter’s insurance makes sure that both your child and others are protected.

Of course, circumstances vary—whether or not your child has roommates, for example. Call Farmers Insurance at 503-538-8898 to see which policies might work best for both you and your child.

Darrel Baumer, DB Collision & Autoworks
Sometimes, appearances do matter. After a collision, you may have gotten a first-rate repair. But if the paint job on the panel doesn’t match the rest of the vehicle, your car might start to look like a beat-up old rattletrap.

At DB Custom, Darrel wants to make sure that your car has an invisible repair, and that means taking the time and effort to make sure that the newly repainted panel perfectly blends in with the rest of your vehicle. Variation in paint formulas, as well as fading from sun and weather exposure, means that a perfect paint match straight out of the can is impossible. “There’s no such thing,” Darrel said.

Instead, Darrel creates a color which would be considered a blendable match. After the damaged panel is repaired, Darrel paints the repaired panel as well as any adjacent panels using a technique called blending, gradually stepping out the paint as he moves away from the points where the panels are adjacent to each other, after which the repair panel and all blend panels are encapsulated with a clear coat. “I want to make sure that you don’t see any transitions between the existing color and new color,” Darrel explained.

For example, if your front door is the repair panel, Darrel will apply color to the repair panel and blend color into the fender and rear door. Afterwards, both the repair panel and blend panels are clear coated. Your perfect paint job is protected both by a warranty from the paint manufacturer and a lifetime warranty from DB Custom. “We want your car to look exactly like it did before it was in an accident,” said Darrel.

Fred Johnson, Premier Community Bank, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial OfficerWe Americans are a competitive bunch, and of all things, there’s a group of people out there who are on a quest to achieve the perfect credit score – 850. While not impossible, it’s a feat only .5% of Americans manage to conquer.

There are a number of tips for boosting your score, and while some FICO-savvy individuals are fixed on earning 800+, a score of 780 or above will open most doors to the best rates and most favorable credit terms.

Payment history is the single most important factor in achieving a high score, according to FICO (Fair Isaac Corporation, creator of the credit scoring model). High scores also hinge on: the amount you owe on your credit lines and loans; the length of your credit history; how much new credit you’ve applied for and the types of accounts you’ve had. If you desire a 780 score or better you can boost your numbers by: monitoring your credit report; paying your bills within the grace period; focusing on paying off credit cards ahead of other types of debt; and maintaining a “utilization ratio”—the amount of credit you use versus the amount of credit available to you—of 10% or less.

Check your credit score for free at creditkarma.com or for a small fee, check your score from all three credit reporting agencies at myfico.com.

Shoe Mates Footwear and Repair is proud to offer one of the most comprehensive selections of this must-have footwear.

This fall, Shoe Mates will be offering both the iconic and the new in the Birkenstock line. Enjoy the comfort of the open leather 2-strap Arizona, the closed-toe or fur-lined Boston, and several new fashion-forward styles never before released in America.

Because Shoe Mates is also an authorized Birkenstock repair shop, our expert cobblers Mel and Jim can fix your Birkenstocks if the treads get worn down or your cork needs patching.

Dr. Wendy Abraham, Naturopathic Physician, Sherwood Aesthetic MedicineThe term “aesthetic medicine” loosely translates to the “medicine of beauty”, and encompasses a diverse group of providers—physicians, dermatologists, surgeons and aestheticians—with the goal of addressing an individual’s cosmetic concerns. For most of the twenty-first century, traditional plastic surgery was the only option. But with an increasing diversity in providers, we have an expanding ability to address the same concerns non-surgically.

Times have changed, and so have we. In 2014, over 20 million aesthetic procedures were performed worldwide. Surgery was only fifteen percent of the total. And the rest? Non-surgical procedures.

When it comes to the big difference in surgical versus non-surgical approaches, what’s clear is that many of us do not want to go “under the knife” or deal with lengthy recovery. And though we want to look our best, many turn away from dramatic surgical outcomes, seeking something less drastic, more natural, yet still rewarding.

Dr. Wendy Abraham is the owner/operator of Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine. Dr. Abraham employs a variety of non-surgical solutions to lift and tighten loose skin, treat stubborn fat and cellulite, reduce jowls, treat wrinkles, brown spots, Rosacea, acne, scars and a multitude of other concerns.

If you’re curious about what non-surgical procedures might be right for you, meet Dr. Abraham at her next free event at Sherwood Aesthetic Medicine on Tuesday, September 13 at 5:30 pm. Please RSVP to (503) 610-1194.

Rodney Robbins, First Step Treatment CenterIt may seem odd to be thinking about going back to school in August, when there is still another month of sun and fun before fall. But less supervision makes it easier for teenagers to become involved in substance abuse.

Many teenagers begin or increase their marijuana use in the summer between eighth and ninth grade. This is concerning, as ninth grade is when students start accumulating credit towards graduation. The National Institute on Drug Abuse cites several studies that suggest marijuana use can result in impaired cognitive abilities, and that the impairment may be more significant if the use began earlier and in greater amounts.

Studies have also shown that there significant changes in IQ scores and brain density in subjects during their late twenties, who were self-reported marijuana users in their teens. The more they used, the greater the negative results.

And according to a recent Gallup poll, the number of adults who use marijuana has increased from 7 percent to 13 percent from 2013-2016. While the poll didn’t account for legitimate medical use, it does note that there is potential for abuse and long-term negative impact.

For teenagers, abusing marijuana and other substances is clearly demonstrated to have a significant potential for longer term damage. If you are concerned about your teen’s use, the earlier the problem is addressed, the more likely it is to get better.

Randy McCreith, Bella Casa Real Estate GroupDuring the 'dark years' (2007-2013) the ranks of Realtors ebbed to a few hardy souls living on famine rations. The mass exodus began to turn in 2014 with the return of some and a flood of new agents. Many companies like layoffs because they can shed some and refresh the labor pool with new energy. Market conditions cause our ebb and flow.

Like every industry, we have bad apples in the barrel, and varying degrees of professionalism, experience and quality. An inordinate number of agents do not have a professional past. These deficiencies must be overcome with education, training, and on the job mentoring.

Realtors are required to pass 150 hours of education and tests for a license to practice real estate. They are FBI background checked and must train under a Principal Broker for 3 years before being autonomous. However, their value is measured mostly on their character, values, determination, and attentive service. Skilled professionals who care about the agent's success, and the protection and service of our clients, are the finishers of great Realtors!

Realtors have been protecting the public since 1913. The industry is changing with the world now but we are not going anywhere soon! Real Estate is getting more complex and challenging every year and dangers are on the rise. Realtors are good!

My first piece of advice? Interview several Realtors before you hire one, and ask a lot of questions. Protect yourself, your property, and your money by making an informed decision. A relative or friend or neighbor are blessings, but a proven professional is valuable- quite literally!
