MCLARENS CARPET ONE - Steve McLarenThe best cure for a spill is a speedy response. If a spill becomes a stain, it will be much more difficult to remove. Here are some tips for carpet stain removal.

There are three important steps that you must use in carpet stain removal, hopefully before it has a chance to set in your carpet:

Apply: Dampen a clean, white (not printed) paper towel with a cleaning solution. Then moisten the carpet with it. Avoid thoroughly wetting the carpet, as this can damage the carpet and backing.

Blot: Absorb the excess liquid from the carpet by pressing straight down with a clean, dry, white paper towel. Do not rub. Place a half-inch thick pad of clean, dry, white paper towels with a weight on top and leave overnight if necessary.

Scrape: Gently scratch the soiled area with the blunt edge of a spoon. Scrape from the outside edge of the spot toward the center.

For stain removal advice, from asphalt to the unknown, go to Carpet One’s Stain Removal Chart at carpetone.com/stainremoval-chart. Or, check out YouTube.com/carpetonefh.

If you’ve been wanting to update your floors, counter tops or window coverings, now is the time.

CANBY CLINIC - Robert Neilson, NDWith summer nearly upon us, here are a few tips to help prevent skin changes during sun exposure. Between the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the sun’s effects on skin are strongest, so limit your exposure and cover up. The guideline with sunscreen is, if you don’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin (I’m serious here). Skin is porous and absorbs what you put on it. I recommend mineral-based sunscreens, such as Jason’s or Alba, which are formulated with zinc or titanium oxide, preventing you from absorbing unnecessary chemicals found in common sunscreens.

Additionally, one of the very best ways to prevent skin cancer is by eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, ideally eight to 10 servings daily. Green tea and omega-3 fatty acids also are preventative in developing skin cancer.

If you have noticed a mole that you are concerned about, first go through the ABCs to see if you are at risk for skin cancer. If you answer yes to any of these questions, have your physician examine the suspicious moles.

A: Asymmetric - is the mole irregular or not symmetrical in shape?

B: Borders - are the borders of the mole difficult to define?

C: Color - are there multiple different colors or shades within the mole?

D: Diameter - is the mole larger than 6 millimeters?

E: Evolving - is the mole changing or evolving quickly?

So whether you are seeking advice for prevention of sun exposure, or want a thorough skin check for cancer risk, the physicians at Canby Clinic are ready to help you with your skincare needs. Please schedule an appointment for an individualized assessment; you can call us at (503) 266-7443 or visit us at 452 NW 1st Avenue in Canby.

CANBY TELCOM - Josh Peak, Technical Support Specialist (MyTech)Virtual Reality (VR) is not quite ready for the consumer stage, but if it is going to take off, it will soon. Like all new gadgets, initial offerings will be prohibitively expensive, which begs the question: Does VR have the staying power to reach a price point accessible to the masses?

Two distinct flavors of VR equipment have risen to prominence: head-mounted computers with built-in screens like Oculus Rift ($599) or HTC Vive ($799), and visors with slots for smartphones like Samsung Gear ($99) or Google Cardboard ($15 to $120). The former comes with far more interactive offerings, including an abundant library of already available apps and games with several more in development. However, a separate computer with very impressive hardware is required to take advantage of these sets, driving the cost of entry even higher. Despite this, VR headsets have taken the YouTube world by storm with videos of disoriented people navigating unseen digital landscapes racking up millions of views with regularity.

Smartphone head-mounts can at first seem like a gimmick or desk toy, but with the omnipresence of smartphones, the low cost of the mounts, and the prolific mobile app market, VR driven by phones could very easily come out on top. The lion’s share of VR mobile apps currently revolve around viewing 3D and 360-degree video content, but the potential for more is there.

Regardless of one’s interest in using such a product, watching a fledgling industry fail or flourish is always entertaining.

GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonHere's an accident checklist for you to follow, especially when a stressful situation makes it difficult to think clearly:

Start with safety. Get to a safe location and switch on your hazard lights before doing anything else. If you have a roadside safety kit, set up warning triangles, light sticks or emergency cones to direct other drivers around the accident scene.

Assess injuries. Determine if anyone has sustained any injuries so you can make an accurate report to the police and, if necessary, call for medical help as soon as possible. If you have a first aid kit, do what you can to tend to injuries while you wait for help.

Contact the police. If there's a dispute or the other party isn't cooperating, contact the police. Even for minor accidents, many states require that you call the police if there are any injuries or if the damage exceeds a certain amount. Check your state's laws for more information.

Exchange information. Obtain contact and insurance information from the other driver. This should include full name, contact details, insurance company and policy number, driver's license and plate number, and vehicle model and description.

Document the details. Take a moment to record your recollection of events. It's a good idea to use your phone's camera to take pictures of the damage, the accident scene and injuries in case a future dispute should arise.

Report it to your insurance company. Contact your insurance company and have the proper damage assessment done right away.

Brought to you by Dr. Alan Neal - Neal Family Dental - FAMILY DENTISTRY INSIDER -

NEAL FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Alan NealWelcome back to the third and final installment of my series on sleep apnea, a blocked-airway disorder that can disrupt your REM sleep 60-plus times per night. You can read the first two parts online (or give my office a call at (503) 266-2705 and we can email you a free copy).

For those with severe to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea, the best option is usually a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure system, or CPAP.

CPAP consists of a head strap device that fits over your mouth and nose; the device is then connected to a small air motor via plastic tubing. The motor sends a continuous stream of air to your lungs. Even this light stream is usually enough to keep your throat open and make breathing easy. CPAPs are pretty amazing medical devices and the more recent ones are quieter, have more controls and your medical doctor can monitor and adjust them according to your needs via the internet.

Dental sleep appliance therapy, an alternative to CPAP, is better suited for mild to moderate cases—or patients who want the freedom to travel without a CPAP machine (or who cannot tolerate a CPAP). Dental appliances, otherwise known as Continuous Open Airway Therapy (COAT), are similar to a nighttime mouth guard, except that a dental appliance physically moves the lower jaw forward, repositions the tongue and keeps the airway unobstructed. I usually recommend the following appliances: TAP-3, OASYS and Sonomed.

From my clinical experience and all the classes I have attended studying sleep medicine—I do not recommend the over-the-counter appliances that can be found at the local pharmacy—they help a little, but a CPAP or dental appliance is more effective. My mother had been using an OTC appliance, but after I made her a “real” sleep appliance in my office she said, ”Not only did I sleep better, but my jaw isn’t as sore and my bite isn’t off when I wake up.”

Remember that untreated sleep apnea can worsen a number of other conditions, including obesity, congestive heart failure, type II diabetes, allergies and high blood pressure.

DR. MICHAEL D. CARY, DMD - Dr. Michael CaryMay is a big turning point for so many kids, parents and teachers. Graduations, celebrations and upcoming summer vacations are all being scheduled. That means it’s time to start thinking about all of the photos that will be taken over the next two months. Luckily, Michael D. Cary, DMD is here to help!

Dr. Cary offers two types of teeth whitening services. The first option is an easy professional in-office treatment, while the second option is a convenient personal take-home tray. Both options provide Sinsational Smile treatment.

Sinsational Smile uses a fast and effective technology with a patented pre-filled silicone tray, allowing the jaw to remain relaxed and keeping you comfortable. The in-office treatment is handled by our experienced hygienists and takes about 20 minutes, which includes the use of an LED acceleration light that helps activate the gel and results in a brighter, whiter smile. After the treatment, you also receive a take-home maintenance pen to extend the length of your whiter smile.

Teeth whitening has been used successfully by both men and women for decades, but the newest treatments are faster and easier than ever.

Having a white and bright smile boosts your self-esteem and makes you feel more confident. To keep your smile shinning, some of the foods and drinks to avoid include wine, soda, tea, sports drinks, berries, sauces, sweets, coffee and tobacco. As the summer days begin, let Michael D. Cary, DMD brighten your smile!

CLUB FIT - Ron and Barb RainesFarmers’ market season is here, and with it the opportunity to buy fresh, healthy and organic produce from our local growers. When you combine good eating habits with exercise you’ll have a much better quality of life.

As I’ve mentioned before, all the exercise in the world can’t make up for a fast-food diet. “Superfoods” aren’t necessarily exotic, but you may not realize just how good they are for you.

Berries. Berries are a great sources of fiber—a nutrient that most Americans don’t get enough of—and one that’s important for a healthy digestive system. Fiber can help promote weight loss too.

Nuts. Nuts are a great source of unsaturated fats. Studies indicate that frequent nut eaters add, on average, an extra two and a half years to their lives.

Sweet potatoes. One sweet potato provides nearly four times the recommended daily value of vitamin A, which helps keep your eyes, bones and immune system healthy.

Broccoli and spinach. These green powerhouses come loaded with vitamins C, A and K. Spinach is loaded with vitamin B too, which helps produce DNA and cause the formation of new cells.

Apples. Apples are a powerful source of antioxidants, and they’re also full of fiber and potassium. It’s important to eat the skin, which contains two to six times more antioxidants than the apple flesh alone.

Turmeric. Yes, this is a spice, not a food, but it’s so great that I added it in. Turmeric, or curcumin, is anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant.

CANBY FORD - There's always something new at Canby Ford. Stop by today!The Ford Mustang is America’s original pony car, and consumers have long admired the iconic muscle machine for its dynamic styling, elegant chassis and powerful engine options.

None of that has changed—but the 2016 Ford Mustang now comes with more standard features, bold color options and a range of hands-free technologies.

One big change is the return of hood vent-integrated secondary turn signals. Fans are calling it a throwback from Mustang’s history, and this heritage feature now comes standard for buyers of the 2016 Mustang GT.

Ford also unveiled a few new color schemes, including over-the-top racing stripes and jet black roof paneling.

When it comes to the engine, the 3.7-liter V6, 2.3-liter EcoBoost and 5-liter V8 all provide the force and fire necessary to conquer the open road. That being said, keeping up with technological change has become (almost) as important as what’s under the hood, and Ford aficionados have plenty to look forward to on that front.

Engineers have been touting SYNC 3’s voice recognition system, as well as the smartphone-like touchscreen and graphic interface.

It’s also worth noting that the Mustang is one of Ford’s safest cars ever, earning five-star ratings for frontal, side and rollover collisions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Mustang a five-star crash test rating overall.

The 2016 Ford Mustang is available now at Canby Ford. Stop by today to learn more.

GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonAvoid accidents, violations and claims: Insurance companies use your driving and claims history to determine statistically how safe you will be and what to charge you for coverage. This background check usually goes back about three years.

Combine your policies: Insurance companies give discounts for insuring both your home/rental policy and auto policy with the same company.

Increase your deductibles: The deductible is the amount you have to pay before the insurance will start paying. The higher your deductible, the less premium you will be charged.

Pay your insurance bill on time: Insurance companies use past billing and some credit information when calculating how much to charge you. This is called your insurance score.

All of these things need to be reviewed and addressed occasionally to ensure you are getting the best price. Give Gustafson Insurance a call to discuss these and other savings available to you.

CANBY BUILDERS SUPPLY - Holly RodwayI got through March without the “green thumb twitch” getting to me. Even the beautiful daffodils didn’t inspire me to get out into the garden. But the great weather we’ve been having is making it hard to hold back. Look out garden, here I come!

I’m hooked on raised bed gardening. Yes, I’m behind on planting, but, with our Canby area spring weather going from sunny to rainy, like it has in the last few weeks, planting in raised beds will get me caught up.

Here’s just some of the benefits of raised bed gardens:

• Better control of nutrients in the soil.

• Less weeds.

• Better water retention in sandy soil and better drainage in clay soil.

• Where the soil warms earlier in the spring, gardens can be started earlier.

• Soil stays warm longer so your growing season can be longer too.

• And, best of all, access to raised beds is just easier on your back.

If you’re a late bloomer like me, raised beds are the way to go.

Canby Builders Supply has everything you need to build a raised cedar planter box kit. We’ve got the potting soil, plant food, tools, garden gloves and even seeds and more to get you “growing” fast.
