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.

PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING HUNTINGTON TERRACE - Randall WilsonEvery 11 seconds, an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury, according to the National Council on Aging.

Many of these falls are preventable. Here are six simple steps to prevent falling:

· Find a good balance and exercise program. At Prestige Care Huntington Terrace, our in-house Celebrations program offers exercise classes designed to strengthen our residents and improve their balance -- at no additional charge.

· Talk to your health care provider. Share your history of recent falls and ask for an assessment of your risk of falling.

· Regularly review your medications with your doctor or pharmacist. Make sure side effects aren’t increasing your risk of falling. Take medications only as prescribed.

· Get your vision and hearing checked annually and update your eyeglasses.

· Keep your home safe by removing tripping hazards, increasing lighting, making stairs safe and installing grab bars in key areas.

· Talk to your family members and caregivers. Enlist their support in taking simple steps to stay safe.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommends that patients and caregivers check out its STEADI program (Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths & Injuries) online at The link includes educational materials and brochures for patients, as well as videos, tests, fact sheets and case studies for providers.

Falls are not an inevitable part of aging.

Here at Prestige Care, we know how important it is to keep our residents safe, healthy and happy.

ADVANCED FIREARMS TRAINING - Tony KrissNot everybody should carry a concealed firearm. Carrying a gun requires a level of maturity coupled with a strong peace of mind that one day you may have to use your firearm. It’s also incredibly necessary that you understand safe firearm handling before getting a concealed carry permit, otherwise you or someone else WILL get hurt. Ignorance and carelessness are the two main causes of gun accidents; take a concealed carry class with Advanced Firearms Training, however, and you’ll be neither.

Our hope is that not only will you learn about safely handling a firearm, you’ll also be better prepared to handle real-life situations where your concealed firearm may be needed. We’ll teach you the relevant Oregon Revised Statutes for concealed handguns, as well as key safety rules to follow when handling your firearm. Along with that, we’ll work with you on properly drawing, gripping, and handling your guns.

Perhaps most importantly, we’ll show you the right way to approach these potentially hazardous situations. Using our state-of-the-art Laser Shot simulator, we will put you through situations that are as close to live training as anything available while offering evaluation of the various components of a good shooter.

Oregon Concealed Carry is just one of the classes offered by Advanced Firearms Training. We also offer an NRA class, private training, personal protection classes, and more! Head to Advanced Firearms Training today to learn more.

MCCORD CONSTRUCTION - Donivon McCordHave you been considering a kitchen remodel? There’s no better time than the fall; what better way is there to welcome your friends and family into your home this holiday season than with a beautifully remodeled kitchen? Kitchen remodels are an extensive undertaking, make sure yours goes smoothly by avoiding these common mistakes:

Not setting a budget—By going into a project with a clear idea of your price range, you can better decide which amenities to include in your remodel.

Not considering resale value—Remodeling is a delicate balance between investment and adding value to your own life. At the end of the day, just know that an incredibly unique kitchen may not be what prospective buyers are looking for come resale time.

Long lead times—Lead times on kitchen materials is a big mistake that too often gets overlooked. To prevent job delays, I like to have all the materials ordered and on their way before I ever start the demolition process.

Not planning ahead—Having a realistic schedule of events will help your remodel run smoother. Make sure to schedule any subcontractors ahead of time and in the order you’ll need them; you’ll keep your subcontractors from having to make multiple trips and keep your added costs to a minimum.

If you’re ready to remodel or upgrade your kitchen, call McCord Construction today! We provide quality remodels and repairs and always put the customer first.

HILLCREST CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Ryan ThomasIf you’ve been involved in an automobile accident, you know just how overwhelming and traumatizing the experience can be. Seemingly minor wrecks can lead to whiplash, back injuries, neck pain, concussions, and other unforeseen complications.

Headaches are one such complication. Those suffering from whiplash often develop chronic headaches, ranging anywhere from dull and achy to incredibly debilitating migraines. These headaches can develop right away, but they may also start days, weeks, even months after an injury.

Fortunately, chiropractors are skilled practitioners when it comes to addressing the underlying causes of headaches. Utilizing techniques such as gentle spinal manipulation and therapeutic massage, chiropractors are able to help alleviate headaches.

As your function and mobility improve throughout the back and neck, muscles and ligaments become less tight with less inflammation. Improved injuries often equate to headache relief. Chiropractic education—including avoiding headache triggers, nutritional advice, and proper therapeutic exercise—are also important aspects of headache management.

If you’ve been living with headaches following an auto accident, please contact Hillcrest Chiropractic today to request a consultation. We specialize in the diagnosis, management, and rehabilitation of motor vehicle collision-related injuries, and we are committed to providing individualized treatment for your condition and strive to best meet your needs.

NANCY'S FLORAL - Rob CookIt has been a tradition to give flower bouquets for a special occasion or during a time of mourning.

Times have begun to shift recently and more people are sending fresh fruit bouquets instead of the standard. Both are beautiful and unique, but which one is right?

A fruit bouquet may not have the traditional meaning that flowers do (for example, red roses stand for love), but they do provide a different and delicious alternative. Our fresh fruit bouquets have a variety of fruit. Some arrangements include fruit dipped in chocolate for an extra treat. The fruit is always ripe and ready to eat.

Enjoy our delicious Fall Harvest Fruit BasketOur Blooming Basket Arrangement is perfect for autumn

Fruit bouquets offer a tangible gift that is shareable for the recipient and guests. If a fruit bouquet is given to someone grieving the loss of a friend or family member, it’s traditional to bring food so they don’t have to cook. The beautiful arrangements can serve two thoughtful purposes for those grieving and their guests.

On the other hand, if someone is sick, you can send them a get-well-soon fruit bouquet. Oranges and other fruits high in Vitamin C help keep body tissues healthy, while bananas and other fruits high in potassium help maintain a healthy blood pressure.

For those who would enjoy both, we also have combination fruit and flower packages for your loved ones. When you consider buying a bouquet for someone, consider our fruit bouquets.

Brought to you by Randy Preston - Honke Heating - HEATING AND COOLING INSIDER -

HONKE HEATING - Randy PrestonAfter a long summer of your air conditioner working hard to keep you cool, it’s now time to give it a rest and put it to sleep. Here are a few steps to help you winterize your system:

  • Turn off the power to you air conditioner at the breaker. This protects the system during the winter from power surges and saves you a little electricity from phantom loads. Furthermore, if you are covering your unit during the winter time, this will protect it from accidentally being turned on.
  • Clean any debris from around the unit, such as leaves or pine needles. Make sure that nothing is stored around the outdoor unit, so that air can circulate around the unit.
  • Although the air conditioner unit outside is designed with special paint and parts that can withstand all types of weather, you can apply car wax to the painted area to protect the paint as you would with your car. Some people feel comfortable covering their unit so that leaves and other debris do not fall into the unit. If you choose to cover your unit, I recommend not covering the whole unit. I recommend one of the two following:
    1. Take a piece of plywood, cut it to the size of the top of the unit, place it on the top and put something on top of it to weigh it down and prevent it from blowing off.

    1. If you prefer to use a designed air conditioner cover, make sure that it is able to provide ventilation; it should NOT go all the way to the bottom of the unit.

    I do not recommend using a tarp to cover your unit. This produces humidity, which can cause mold and algae to grow on the unit and some parts to rust. Another reason that I do not recommend a tarp or completely covering your unit is that this provides a nice, dry, and warm environment for rodents to take habitat in; they will chew the insulation and wiring off your unit to make their nest, causing potentially extensive damage to your unit.

    CHERRY PARK PLAZA - Maleesa MadsenFall may have just kicked off, but in Oregon that means colder winter weather is right around the corner. While you might think of chestnuts roasting over an open fire or the warmth of holiday cheer when you think of winter, the cold temperatures, ice, and snow are what are really on the horizon, and they can make life challenging for everyone, especially seniors.

    Many seniors tend to lead isolated lives during the winter months to avoid the cold, compounding the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder (the so-called “winter blues”) and negatively impacting a senior’s health. Between the added isolation, having to clear snow and ice from your property, and constantly dressing warmly to prevent hypothermia, there is a lot of hard work that goes into living at home.

    At Cherry Park Plaza, we take the work and worry out of winter. We offer around-the-clock care, transportation to scheduled appointments, and a friendly, welcoming, and comfortably-warm atmosphere so you never feel alone during the holiday season.

    Our elegant in-house restaurant prepares a variety of delectable, nutritious dining choices each day, and our life-enriching activities provide daily social and recreational activities for complete care of your mind, body, and soul.

    BRIDGE CITY MEDICAL AESTHETICS - Deb-ee Jones, RNWith dropping temperatures and greying skies, you may feel that wearing sunscreen in the fall and winter is not necessary. Don’t be fooled though, it’s just as important to protect your skin in the fall and winter as it is in spring and summer.

    Typically, most people will wear sunscreen when it is sunny during outdoor activities. However, even when the sun is hidden behind the clouds, your skin is still at risk. Overcast skies still permit up to 80% of UV radiation to make its way through, and those UV rays are just as damaging in the fall and winter as they are in summer—particularly the UVA rays that are so aging to your skin.

    Not only are the rays just as strong, the damage is the same: Sun damage to your skin correlates to cumulative UV exposure. As a general rule, I recommend you wear sunscreen that is at least an SPF 30 in the fall and winter. For people who enjoy being up at Mt. Hood and other snowy spots, you need to take extra precautions. Snow reflects the UV radiation emitted from the sky, creating a dangerous environment for your skin. Apply a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 50 when you make those snowy trips to keep protected.

    When purchasing a sunscreen or block there are a few important things to remember. First, pay for quality in your sunscreen, not quantity. Although the bulk store sunscreens look like a bargain they are often not regulated and do not provide the protection promised. Don’t fall for the 105 SPF trick, anything labeled over 50 SPF is unregulated.

    Second, consider the type of sun protectant and what you will actually use. If you realistically won't reapply a liquid sun block then look for a good mineral powder sunblock that dusts on. If your sunscreen just sits in your drawer it’s not protecting your skin.

    Last but not least, read your sunscreen’s label to determine the amount to apply and when to re-apply. Once a day is not enough! A good rule of thumb is to apply a shot glass amount every 4 hours for good protection for your entire body.

    Happy Fall!

    THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhilipsLast year, nearly 90,000 charges alleging workplace discrimination were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). In many of these cases, the individual is an at-will employee who can be fired at any time for just about any reason—even if the reason is a poor one.

    In certain situations, however, wrongful termination can be shown, and a wrongful termination attorney should be retained to protect your rights. Generally speaking, a termination must fit into one of three categories to be considered wrongful: Termination based on 1.) protected class; 2.) protected actions; or 3.) breach of contract.

    Oregon and federal law have created certain classes protected from discrimination, including race, national origin, disability, age, gender, sexual orientation, and a host of others. Suspicion and belief alone are not enough to prove a case; an employee must establish a causal link between being part of a protected class and their termination. This requires witnesses, documents, and other evidence that an attorney can help you gather.

    Certain conduct is also protected by law, including reporting illegal employer conduct (whistleblowing), or exercising a legal right like voting. Additionally, if your termination violated an employment contract term, you may also have grounds to assert a wrongful termination claim against a former employer.

    Employment cases can be complex, involving overlapping Oregon and federal laws, rules, and regulations that are applied differently to every case. If you believe you have a serious case, I strongly recommend consulting with The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips today.
