NANCY'S FLORAL - Rob CookIs there anything more intoxicating than the fragrant smell of freshly cut flowers? Before you answer that, take a look at our “Happy Hour” collection—available now at Nancy’s Floral!

It’s a great idea. We take a classic martini or margarita glass and fill it with brightly-colored blooms (and chocolate-covered fruit, depending on the item purchased). The result is a whimsical creation, beautiful to look at, to smell or to taste.

One of our best-selling arrangements is called “Here’s to 21.” An acrylic margarita glass is filled with a fresh fruit display, topped by pineapple slices in the shape of the number 21.

But don’t worry about it being too healthy. The strawberries, star-shaped pineapples and grape skewers are all dunked in a delicious chocolate confection with white drizzle on top. It’s a nice (and sober) way to celebrate a “legal adult’s” big day.

NANCY'S FLORAL - An intoxicating floral arrangement, available today at Nancy's Floral!Nancy’s Floral carries a variety of other “Happy Hour” options, each meant to mimic some of the most classic cocktail drinks around. Whether your drink of choice is an apple martini, blue Hawaiian, lemon drop, sangria, margarita or a cosmopolitan, Nancy’s Floral has a flowery concoction brewed just for you.

So don’t be a floral teetotaler—imbibe our flower displays today!

BRIDGE CITY MEDICAL AESTHETICS - Deb-ee Jones, RNAre you looking to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles? Does your face or neck feel saggy and need a lift? Does the thought of invasive surgeries and their long recovery times scare you? Then let me tell you about the wonderful Ulthera system, which offers minimal downtime and impressive, noticeable results, all without surgery!

Ultherapy was approved in 2009 by the FDA to non-invasively lift the brow and tighten the skin of the upper lid. Utilizing the power of sound waves, Ultherapy stimulates the body’s own response to produce new collagen. Ultherapy incorporates ultrasound imaging, allowing for visualization of the different layers of the skin. With precise targeting of the dermis at two different depths, results from Ulthera will continue to stimulate improvement for up to 6 months after treatment!

Ultherapy is commonly used to treat the brow, jawline, lips, neck and décolleté. While some bruising and swelling may occur, most patients experience little to no downtime; often patients express that they feel an immediate, tighter result.

As a certified trainer for Ulthera, I have extensive experience with Ultherapy. I know the latest techniques to alleviate discomfort while still producing the most effective results. Schedule a comprehensive, complimentary consultation today!

C.P. TRIPS - Cindy PassannanteWith jaw-dropping scenery and tons of recreational attractions, it’s no wonder that Travel Oregon named the Columbia River Gorge as part of the Seven Wonders of Oregon. With one of the iconic features of the region, the Historic Columbia River Highway, celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year, there’s no better time than now to explore the region.

The West Columbia Gorge Chamber of Commerce, of which I am a member, is putting on a number of great, family-friendly events to help celebrate. Troutdale’s 44th Annual SummerFest on July 23rd will feature a parade (including the kickoff of the Friends of the Historic Columbia River Highway Antique Car Tour) and will host live music and a variety of kid-friendly activities in Glenn Otto Park.

Troutdale, along with Cascade Locks, is also home to the 2nd Annual Fall Festival of The Arts. Running Friday, September 30th through October 2nd, the festival aims to present the thriving community of artists in the region, and will feature a silent auction, live bronze pouring, and lots of fine art displayed for sale.

Of course, with over 70 waterfalls, the Portland Women’s Forum State Scenic Viewpoint, and countless other recreational areas, the Gorge can certainly satisfy your hankering for the great outdoors. Businesses such as Rare Earth Adventures offer guided tours off the beaten path for the most adventurous of explorers.

If you’re ready to explore the Gorge, give me a call today!

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsWhether you’re looking to raise capital, limit your personal liability or create a business that stands the test of time, there’s no better choice than filing articles of incorporation to form a corporation. Here are five steps to address first.

Appoint directors. Every corporation needs a board of directors to be considered legally valid, and their names should be included on the incorporation documents. Your board will have enormous influence over the future of your company, so choose wisely.

Issue stock. Every corporation must have shareholders. This means authorized (but unsold) stock must be listed in the articles of incorporation, and a formal resolution must be passed approving their sale.

Register an EIN. A Employer Identification Number (EIN) is like your business’s social security number. You’ll need it to file taxes, open a corporate bank account and (most importantly) get paid. The IRS makes it easy to obtain an EIN on their website.

Craft a shareholders’ agreement. Though not technically required, a shareholders’ agreement prevents co-founders from suddenly selling their shares to an outside interest, while also establishing contingencies if a founder loses control of their stock due to divorce or bankruptcy.

Hire a corporate lawyer. You need an experienced business attorney to draft your articles of incorporation. They will ensure your business is protected and ready to succeed.

MCCORD CONSTRUCTION - Donivon McCordBuilding a deck is hard work, but when done right they can add tremendous value to your home. Here are five tips to get you started.

Check your codes. In Gresham, a building permit is generally not required for decks less than 30 inches above the adjacent grade (soil). There must also be three feet of clearance between the deck and the property line.

Plan your needs. Before you settle on a design, consider what size tables, chairs and grilling equipment you plan to use. Make sure you’ve adequately planned for your spacing needs.

Select a material. Cedar decks are beautiful, but need to be re-stained every few years to maintain their appearance. A composite material like Trex only needs to be power washed annually to protect your investment.

Consider trouble spots. In my experience, the No. 1 reason decks fail is when the builder improperly fastens the ledger (the horizontal board that connects the deck to your house). You also need to consider how far you can span framing joists and beams.

Now find a professional. When it comes to the safety of the friends and family who will be using your deck, “I’m pretty sure it’s safe” just doesn’t cut it. A misbuilt deck is an unsafe eyesore that subtracts value from your home, rather than adding to it.

McCord Construction is Gresham’s best choice for safe and stylish deck construction. Call today!

HONKE HEATING - Randy PrestonWhen most people think about heating their home, they imagine that they need to burn some sort of fuel (whether it's a gas-powered furnace or a wood-burning fireplace) in order to generate heat.

In reality, there’s an easy and simple way to move heat around that doesn’t require burning a fuel source. It’s called a heat pump.

Here’s how a heat pump works. In simple terms, a heat pump is a device that uses a small amount of energy to transfer heat from one place to another.

There are many types of heat pumps, but one of the most common is called an air-source heat pump. In the winter time, the outdoor condenser coil absorbs heat from the outside, (even when it is cold outside), and distributes it to the inside of your home.

There is a device in the outdoor system called a reversing valve, which in the summertime reverses the refrigerant direction. This in turn causes the refrigerant to absorb the heat from your house and then distribute it to the outside, which causes your home to cool down. When it is extremely cold outside, the heat pump is assisted by a backup heat source such as an electric or gas furnace.

There are heat pumps designed for homes with ductwork and for homes with no ductwork.

Honke Heating offers both ducted and ductless heat pumps from some of the best brands around. Give us a call today!

RANDALL WILSON - Prestige Senior Living Huntington TerraceOlder couples sometimes find that running a household, taking care of themselves and each other has become too much of a burden.

Prestige Care communities offer options for couples, even when level-of-care requirements differ.

Couples can choose studio or one-bedroom apartments. All have kitchenettes with compact-sized refrigerator/freezers and microwaves. All meals are served in the dining room, unless a resident is unwell or requests to have room trays delivered to them as part of their service plan.

For each resident, regardless of marital status or cohabitation, a level-of-care assessment is done. A comprehensive service plan is tailored to each, with all activities of daily living considered — including dressing, bathing, grooming, elimination, mobility, reminders and medication management.

Care needs are assessed and a service plan is developed for each of our residents. Certain services cannot be supported in Assisted Living and require Skilled Nursing or Alzheimer’s care. When in search of a community to live in, make sure to ask for details about next-level care.

Brought to you by Dr. Ryan Thomas - Hillcrest Chiropractic - CHIROPRACTIC INSIDER -


HILLCREST CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Ryan ThomasIt is another ordinary day and you are idling in traffic when—out of nowhere—another vehicle crashes into your rear bumper.

At the moment of impact, your head immediately begins to lag behind the rest of your body as your body lunges forward with your car. Your body quickly stops due to your seatbelt but your head is now coming forward catching up to your body’s new position. The whipping motion your neck experiences is similar to a whip being cracked, hence the term “whiplash.”

The whipping motion you experienced is over in microseconds. You step out of your car, already worrying about damage to your vehicle. Thankfully, you were at a full stop and the other driver was slowing prior to impact, so there is no visible damage. If your car is fine, you must be too, right?

Wrong.

Many people assume they cannot have whiplash if their car was not severely damaged. In reality, the material in your car is designed to absorb energy from impacts at low speeds. If your rear bumper did not crumple, that energy was directly transferred to you and may result in a neck injury.

If you have developed neck or back pain after a “minor” car accident, please consider scheduling a consultation at Hillcrest Chiropractic Clinic. With his advanced training, Dr. Thomas is able to diagnosis, treat and manage your injuries, and put you on the path toward optimal health.

Brought to you by Doug Lepper - Crown Carpets - CARPET INSIDER -


CROWN CARPETS - Doug LepperGetting a rough idea of how much carpet you will need for a project is pretty simple, but a precise figure can be more difficult to come by. Unless you're experienced with carpet you should get a professional to give you a precise estimate.

Why?

Let's say your room is 10 feet by 10 feet. That's 100 square feet. But if you bought 100 square feet you would have to do a lot of cutting and seaming to cover this room. Here's why: Carpet normally comes 12 feet wide, so buying 100 square feet would mean the length would be 8 feet 4 inches (100 divided by 12 = 8.33 feet). So purchasing 100 square feet of carpet would require cutting the extra 2 feet off the side and then seaming it onto the end of the 8 foot 4 inch length as five pieces, each 2 feet wide by 1 foot 8 inches wide, to fit the 10 X 10 room. To avoid all those seams, the better method is to buy a piece of carpet that is 12 feet wide and 10 feet long—120 square feet—and discard the 2 foot excess.

Confused? No worries… just call Crown Carpets. We’ll send out an estimator who will measure your rooms and calculate the amount of carpet needed. This service is absolutely free and you are not obligated to buy anything unless you are ready to.

CREATIVE VISIONS LANDSCAPES - Dori and Randy DeLaunayOrnamental ponds and water gardens make an excellent addition to any yard. However, ponds require a delicate touch (and common sense) to ensure proper equilibrium. Here are five tips to get you started.

Plan before you dig. Don’t start digging before you have a complete game plan in mind. Many people get in over their heads without knowing the final cost first. We can help you build a pond that fits your budget and expectations.

Know your equipment. Essential pond equipment includes a liner, pump, filter and pipe. Skimmers can be used to significantly reduce pump clogging, making pond maintenance easy and convenient. UV lights can be used to eliminate green water without chemicals.

Beware predators. Ponds are frequently visited by hungry critters such as herons and raccoons. To keep your fish safe, plan for at least part of your pond to be three feet deep. For shallower ponds, you can easily build a hiding tube or fish cave out of bricks and rock.

Go for green. Plants are a fantastic way to enhance your pond. They absorb harmful nutrients from the water, shade the pond and attract other wildlife.

Let us troubleshoot. Ponds may have issues from time to time. Luckily, we’ve seen and heard it all. We provide water tests and pond advice at no cost. Mention this ad and get 20 percent off your next purchase!

CHERRY PARK PLAZA - Marie NicholsonAt Cherry Park Plaza, we believe that giving active, independent seniors the option to eat well and work out regularly is crucial to supporting a healthy community.

One thing we focus on particularly is diabetes. If you don’t know, diabetes is a chronic condition that hampers the body’s ability to process blood sugar (type II) or drastically decreases the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas (type I).

By age 60, one out of four Americans has some form of diabetes, while perhaps another 50 percent of seniors have unhealthy levels of glucose in their blood (also known as prediabetes).

These numbers are growing. Over 400,000 seniors age 65 and older are diagnosed with diabetes annually.

At Cherry Park, we take the health of our residents seriously. That’s why our chef ensures that every meal comes with healthy substitutions and diet-friendly options like fruit, sugar-free desserts and whole grain bread.

Cherry Park also offers professionally-led, senior-oriented exercise programs. I always tell our newer residents to forget about the exercise—it’s really just a great way to meet people.

But, in reality, studies show that diet and exercise are key to warding off prediabetes, or lessening your symptoms if you already have it.

At Cherry Park, we truly care about the health and wellness of all our residents. But when we say “independent” living, we mean it. And that includes the freedom to cheat on your diet.
