ADVANCED FIREARMS TRAINING - Tony KrissWhen you handle a firearm, having a safety-oriented attitude is the best thing you can do to prevent firearm accidents. Ignorance and carelessness are the two main causes of firearm accidents, which is why I think it’s necessary that you understand safe weapon handling; otherwise, you or someone else WILL get hurt. In the spirit of keeping you safe this holiday season, here are more safe weapon-handling tips, courtesy of Advanced Firearms Training:

1.) Know your firearm—Don’t just guess, KNOW how your firearm operates: how it loads and unloads, where the safety is located, etc.

2.) Keep your firearm unloaded until ready to use—Don’t store your firearm with live rounds in it, and don’t load it until you’re ready to use your firearm.

3.) Keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction—If you’re not ready to use your firearm, keep it pointed in a safe direction; generally, this will be towards the ground. Treat every firearm like it is loaded.

4.) Know your target and beyond—Before you’re ready to fire, make sure to track what’s behind your target; bullets can go through—and beyond—your intended target.

5.) Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire—As long as your finger is away from the trigger, your firearm will not discharge. This is arguably the most important rule of firearm safety.

MCCORD CONSTRUCTION - Donivon McCordHomeowners looking to add upgrades or remodel sections of their home will usually wait until the nice weather of spring and summer arrives. But why not remodel now? By the time spring arrives, you could already be enjoying your newly renovated kitchen or your wonderfully redesigned bathroom.

Winter remodels come with a number of benefits. Contractors typically have less projects in the winter months, making scheduling substantially easier than the summer months. Manufacturers may have close-out prices on appliances and materials before raising prices in the spring. The end result is a project that costs you less money, saves you more time, and leads to a higher return on your investment.

And there are even more ways to make your home renovation worth the money and effort you put into it. Start by repairing what needs to be fixed; home repairs are the renovation that yields the most value for your home. After that, your kitchen and bathroom are the two areas where a remodel is most beneficial, due to their frequent use.

Finally, another smart move to make is remodeling with energy efficient products. Whether it’s doors, windows, or appliances, these products will add value to your home while helping you to save on your energy costs.

At McCord Construction, we believe that NOW is the best time to remodel your home. Contact us today to get started: We always put the customer first.

CREATIVE VISIONS LANDSCAPES - Dori and Randy DeLaunayWith winter right around the corner, you’ll need to make specific adjustments to how you care for your home’s pond feature. You don’t need us to tell you how different the summer and winter months are, and your pond can definitely tell the difference too! Make sure that your pond is in great shape this winter by following these tricks for a healthy winter pond:

  • Clean out any leaves and debris before they decay. The cleaner your pond, the happier and healthier your fish will be.
  • Add salt to kill unwanted parasites on your koi and goldfish. It’s a safe, natural, and effective method for ridding your fish of unwanted parasites.
  • When the water reaches 50 degrees, stop feeding your pond fish. Koi and goldfish will hibernate until the spring and will not need to be fed.
  • Keep adding beneficial bacteria to ensure no imbalances in the winter. This is the season when fish are most susceptible to water quality issues.
  • Keep an open hole in a frozen pond for essential gas exchange. This can be done with a pond heater or by leaving your pump running.
  • For more helpful tips with your winter landscape, we’re always just a phone call away for friendly, local advice (We do free water testing all year round!). Give us a call today at 503-663-5483.

    HILLCREST CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Ryan ThomasBoard certified chiropractic orthopedists are doctors of chiropractic that have completed extensive postdoctoral education in non-surgical orthopedics, and have passed rigorous specialty Board examinations leading to Diplomate status as a chiropractic orthopedist. Less than 2% of chiropractic physicians attain this status.

    To become Board certified, the chiropractic orthopedic specialist is required to demonstrate advanced proficiency in the evaluation and non-operative management of a broad range of injuries, conditions and disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system with particular emphasis on the spine and extremities.

    Who Is Certified?

    While many doctors of chiropractic (DC) prepare for careers in private practice, teaching, or research many choose additional education and training in a specialty field and pursue specialty certification. Practicing orthopedic specialists (Diplomates) hold specialty board certification. Diplomates that are members of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists and are in good standing are titled Fellows of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists (FACO).

    The Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists maintains a recertification process (3 year cycle) available for Fellows of the Academy, to provide an ongoing program for maintaining clinical competency in the specialty of chiropractic orthopedics.

    HONKE HEATING - Randy PrestonIf you are like most people, you probably need to know how to get your furnace ready for the winter. Along with routine maintenance, there are a few simple things you can do to keep your furnace running as efficiently as possible.

  • Make sure that there is nothing stored around your furnace, especially flammable material.
  • Change the batteries in your thermostat and switch your thermostat to the heating mode.
  • Make sure that all of your vents are open and nothing has been placed over them.
  • Clean your air vents and ducts by removing the vent covers, using the extension hose of your vacuum to remove the dust.
  • Stock up on air filters during the warmer months. Make sure that you change your air filters often, or if you have washable filters, wash them often.
  • If you have an oil furnace, contact your oil delivery service for “fill up”. Buying oil is less expensive before the winter.
  • Test you furnace while it’s still warm out, making sure that there is no problems.
  • Other things that you should do:

    1.) Reverse your ceiling fans for winterized air circulation.

    2.) Never use your oven, range or outdoor barbecue to heat your home because these appliances are not designed for this purpose.

    3.) Install a carbon monoxide (CO) detector and test it monthly.

    4.) Change your batteries in you smoke detector and test it monthly.

    Schedule an appointment to clean your furnace early in the season. Professional companies get very busy at the onset of winter, so it’s a good idea to schedule your appointment ahead of time. A professionally cleaned heating system will work better and more efficiently, saving you money in the long run.

    Call Honke Heating and Air Conditioning today to schedule your maintenance appointment!

    CHERRY PARK PLAZA - Maleesa MadsenAccording to the AARP, socializing with others has been proven to relieve stress and decrease the chances of ill health. For outgoing seniors, moving into senior housing provides the exhilarating opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. Other seniors, however, can feel a dread or anxiety when it comes to building a new social network.

    Fortunately, senior housing provides many great opportunities to make friends! Here are 5 steps to help you on your journey:

    1.) Bake for your neighbors—Your neighbors often end up the people you see the most, so introduce yourself (and bring some cookies with you).

    2.) Relax in common areas—You won’t meet many people if you never leave your apartment, so hang out in the common areas and strike up conversations with those around you.

    3.) Signup for activities/clubs—Cherry Park Plaza offers a wide variety of activities, giving retirees a chance to meet and spend time with new people who share common interests and experiences.

    4.) Volunteer—When you volunteer, you have the opportunity to connect with those you’re serving while simultaneously building relationships with whoever you are volunteering with, making volunteering one of the best ways to find new friends.

    5.) Follow a passion—Participate in an activity near and dear to your heart, and do so regularly. You will have repeated contact with the same people, and familiarity breeds friendship.

    If you’re ready to make new friends, Cherry Park Plaza is the place to be! Call us today at (503) 573-4944 to get started!

    BRIDGE CITY MEDICAL AESTHETICS - Deb-ee Jones, RNWinter can be tough on your complexion; as the temperature outside nose-dives, so too does your skin’s moisture content. Nevertheless, the colder season may actually be the best time to go have a variety of skin-related cosmetic procedures performed. Check out these three procedure that are perfect for the winter season:

  • Laser Hair Removal—Laser hair removal optimally targets your unwanted hair to give your skin a sleek look. Following treatment, your skin will be sensitive (like it has a mild sunburn); therefore, you’ll want to cover up and avoid sun exposure.
  • Sclerotherapy—Ideal for improving the appearance of prominent spider veins on your thighs and lower legs, sclerotherapy causes the veins to shrink and then gradually disappear. Because compression stockings are generally recommended after treatment, the layers upon layers of winter clothing make now an attractive time to have this treatment completed.
  • Intense Pulsed Light Photo Rejuvenation—Selectively target sun damage, visible vessels, and the flushing of the face and neck associated with rosacea to create a radiant complexion. Because deeply tanned skin can lead to complications, winter, when your skin is generally a little paler, is the best season for IPL treatments.
  • In each instance, the changes we make in winter coincide perfectly with many cosmetic treatments: We wear more layers, we’re not outside as much, and our skin is better suited to laser treatments without our summer tan.

    So take your first steps towards brighter, clearer skin: Call Bridge City Medical Aesthetics today and schedule your complimentary consultation!

    THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsIf you have a business, you need a buy-sell agreement. Not having a buy-sell agreement is one legal mistake that I see too many small and medium-sized businesses make, and it can potentially lead to several huge issues. Let’s run through the 5 biggest reasons your business absolutely needs a buy-sell agreement.

    1.) You should be able to choose your partners—Should one of your partners be forced to sell, or even dies, someone else can end up with his/her shares, leaving you with partners you never counted on having.

    2.) You’ll get a fair buyout—A buy-sell agreement sets out a method for determining the fair price of a departed owner’s stake, eliminating potential disputes.

    3.) It can prevent minority shareholders from blocking a sale—Including a drag along clause prevents a minority owner from extorting the other owners for a greater portion of sale proceeds.

    4.) It can protect minority shareholders during a sale—A tag along clause entitles minority owners to the same price per share as majority owners upon the sale of the business.

    5.) It can reduce your estate tax burden—Should one of your partners die, you can use the method contained in a buy-sell agreement to determine how the business should be valued for estate tax purposes. Without this process, the IRS is free to determine its own value of the business.

    For help drafting your business’ buy-sell agreement, contact The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips today!

    CREATIVE VISIONS LANDSCAPES - Dori and Randy DeLaunayJust like a vegetable planting bed, your lawn needs to be prepared for winter. As the leaves begin to change and the cooler fall temperatures arrive, follow these tips from Creative Visions for your best winter lawn ever.

    Before you start any prep work, you’ll want to test your soil’s pH level. A neutral pH is key to your lawns health; areas that are too acidic can be treated with lime products, while areas that are too alkaline will respond well to sulfur treatment.

    Next, it’s important to remove any weeds from your yard during the fall. Perennial weeds compete with your lawn for nutrients, so remove them before you spread any fertilizer. You can eliminate many winter weeds with a fall herbicide application. If your lawn suffered any compression during the summer, consider aerating your lawn for a healthier, fuller look.

    After you aerate, put down a good winterizer fertilizer with high potassium and phosphorous content to strengthen your grass’ roots. As the air temperature decreases, blade growth slows, but your lawn’s roots remain active, storing food reserves for winter. Roots with a healthy supply of nutrients will grow quicker and thicker in the spring and help prevent unwanted weeds from popping up.

    Finally, make sure to remove debris from your lawn throughout the fall to prevent dead spots, and continue to mow your grass until it stops growing. If you have any questions, the knowledgeable Creative Visions team is here to help. Stop by today!

    WESTON KIA - Dan SchofieldSo you’re considering buying a new car.

    Even if you've done your research, examined your budget and been pre-approved, it can be an advantage to look for the best deal on a car. (Not to mention financing and a new-car warranty.)

    It pays to focus your efforts on areas where you can have some influence. Among those is picking the best time — and avoiding the worst — to get a deal on your car.

    The fall and winter months offer the greatest potential discounts. Remember, as the year goes by, inventories become more limited, so even though great discounts may be available, they might not apply to the model you're shopping for.

    If you have your heart set on something, think about whether the extra savings is worth potentially missing out on the car you really want.

    According to historical statistics, springtime probably isn't the ideal time to buy a car. More people are out and about as winter weather clears, and tax refund checks are warming consumers' pockets.

    Look at outgoing models. Shop for last year's models when the new ones are due or first rolling into the showroom. The dealership wants to sell new cars and will be more willing to make deals on older models to get them off the lot.

    Come test-drive your next vehicle at Weston Kia. Our professional and friendly staff can help you make the best choice for your new-car purchase.
