Do your friends really need another pair of socks? Do your family members really need an­other fruitcake? Why not con­sider giving your loved ones the gift of an experience this holiday season?

Hillsboro’s arts and culture scene is growing and thriving. In addition to the work produced by Bag&Baggage, Hillsboro’s resident professional theatre company, residents of Hillsboro also have the opportunity to at­tend performances and events at the Walters Cultural Arts Cen­ter, the HART Theatre, Stages Youth Theatre, the Hillsboro Community Youth Choir, the Washington County Museum, the Hillsboro Symphony Orches­tra, the Oregon Chorale, and many, many more! Our growing arts scene needs your support to stay strong, and one of the very best ways you can help us is by giving the gift of arts and culture this holiday season.

Attending a concert, going to a live theatre show, visiting a gallery together; these expe­riences are not only “once in a lifetime,” they are also about building a greater sense of com­munity and connecting more with your neighbors. Giving your family tickets to a show not only creates lasting memories, it is also a great way to support the arts and culture organiza­tions throughout Hillsboro. So, why not pass on the neck tie, the video game, or the fruit bas­ket this holiday season and give your loved ones, and yourself, the gift of culture! Bag&Baggage has a special “Family Four Pass” for our holiday show, Parfumerie for only $100, and I know that al­most all of the other arts groups in town have amazing things planned for the holidays. More information about our special gift passes, and about our holi­day show, can be found online at

In October, pink is every­where—from profession football to yogurt containers. It is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we at the Maple Street Clinic would like to take this opportu­nity to encourage you schedule all of your preventative care ex­ams (including a mammogram) in addition continuing to per­form your monthly self-exams.

Breast cancer affects more than 240,000 women, and nearly 2000 men, every year. Annually, 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer and about 40,000 women will die from the disease. When caught early, however, the 5-year sur­vival rate is close to 100%. Breast cancer is the 2nd most common cancer occurring in American women, after skin cancer.

Factors that might elevate risk of breast cancer are some­times within your control. These include: obesity, heavy drink­ing, and a sedentary lifestyle. Some risk factors are outside of your control but are important to note; such as: genetics, early menstruation, high breast den­sity and aging. Previous treat­ments, such as birth control pill usage, hormone therapy, and radiation exposure may also el­evate your risk of breast cancer.

Symptoms of breast cancer vary from person to person. These may include a lump in the breast or armpit, thicken­ing, irritation, itching, redness, discharge, or change in size or shape of breast or nipple. If you have any signs or symptoms that are of a concern be sure to see your health provider right away.

A healthy lifestyle may lower your risk of developing cancer, and improve your chances of surviving cancer if it occurs. If you have any questions about staying healthy, the importance of preventative care, or any breast health concerns call us at the Maple Street Clinic. We are here to help.

You know, the earthquake that will severely damage our area. Often after earthquakes gas lines into homes are bro­ken creating a fire hazard. The last thing a homeowner needs after an earthquake is a fire. Hybrid Heating and Cooling is proud to carry Firefighter seismic gas shut off valves. Because no one can accurately predict an earthquake, Fire­fighter Gas Safety Products developed this automatic gas shutoff valve that activates and shuts off your home or business natural gas supply in the event of a 5.4 or greater earthquake.

The AGV-100 & VAGV-100 series valves are used in large homes and some small indus­trial applications. At your home or office, Firefighter valves work 24-7 to protect lives and property from earthquake re­lated gas fires. Please remem­ber Firefighter gas valves meet or exceed the requirements of the City of Los Angeles, and are laboratory tested and cer­tified. When safety counts, de­pend on Firefighter Gas Safety Products.

Peace of mind and safety for your family is why we devel­oped it. Our valves are manu­factured using state of the art CNC machining equipment that allows us to build consis­tent and reliable valves you can trust. Quality and safety are paramount in the production of our valves. Your family’s lives depend on our product work­ing properly and we test every valve that leaves our plant for that very reason. Call Hybrid for installation costs and pro­tect your home and family after the ‘Big One’.

An annual insurance review is important to protect your family’s home and belongings and to prevent what is called a coverage gap. A coverage gap occurs when the value of your belongings exceeds your coverage.

A new baby will change your life insurance policy both to increase coverage and add a beneficiary. If you have remodeled or bought a new home or if it has been awhile since you bought the original policy, make sure that you have enough coverage to rebuild in case of a loss. And if your 16 year-old is driving you will want to change your car insurance!

When you meet with your agent, it is helpful to bring all your existing insurance policies. For new car insurance, bring the names and driver’s licenses for any new drivers in your household and registration documentation.

Odometer readings are also helpful for determining car insurance rates. Bring your lease agreement if you have renter’s insurance. These items help your agent determine what coverage you need and supply other important information.

Another way to determine homeowner coverage is to conduct a home inventory of all your possessions. You can add an app for your phone for this or check out the Allstate website for help.

Ask if you qualify for discounts, if you are retirement age, or have good grades or belong to a motor club.

Like home maintenance, an annual insurance review is something that can go a long way to protecting what is likely your biggest investment. Janet will know the details of coverage for your neighborhood and can help you get the correct coverage for all your possessions.

Good news! Every year we live by the weather in the vine­yard.

This year, the surprisingly warm April and May gave us an early start, which proved to be good news in the summer months - dry and warm but not hot. This produced an early har­vest and good weather for the harvest. Last year we finished harvest on October 4th. This year, we were essentially done by the third week in September, with the exception of some Pi not noir we are leaving on the vine to produce another vintage of Port-style wine and our Ries­ling, which always benefits from some extra time.

Plenty of warm afternoons and cool evenings allowed the Pinot noir to hang on the vine and for us to harvest it at its peak, rather than compromise because of bad weather. The yields are extra nice and, be­cause it’s an early harvest, there is little or no bird damage from the migrating species - starlings and robins. The juices taste good, the color is excellent in the pinot, the flavors are extraordi­nary.

When to harvest is based on ripeness and a guide to this is numbers: brix (level of sugar in the grapes) determines the alcohol content; acid for the nice fruit tastes and pleasant aromas; the Ph, which plays a role in the stability of the wine. Wine making is part science and part art.

Looks like good news all around for good wine next year.

Chris and Victoria GarfieldSo you are driving by a beautiful house for sale and you call the agent listed on the for sale sign. But this call goes to the listing agent, who represents the seller. This means the agent is working on behalf of the seller to get the highest possible price and best terms for the seller, not the buyer, who is you. Conversely, if you are the seller, your listing agent is your biggest advocate. You want your listing agent to get the best deal for you. Your listing agent will help you in many other ways, including coordinating the purchase process with inspectors, appraisers, title company agents and others, hosting open houses and verifying the buyer’s eligibility to purchase. In other words, the listing agent will make selling your home as easy as possible for you.

Better to call your own buyer agent, who you have chosen before you began house hunting. You have told them what you are looking for and your budget. A buyer agent works on behalf of the buyer, negotiating the best terms and price for the buyer. And the buyer agent services are free. Only the seller pays a commission so having an agent represent you is a win-win situation. They will be knowledgeable about the area and can guide you through the stress of buying a home.

Chris and Victoria Garfield at John L. Scott Marker Center in Forest Grove are able to represent you whether you are selling or buying. They know how to protect your interests and negotiate the best price and terms for you. Call them at 503-359-9100 to find out more about buying or selling a home.

Dr. Scott Hein, PT, DPT, OCSAmerica is in pain. Current data indicates more than 100 million people in the US suffer from some form of persistent pain – despite a significantly increasing rate of injections, surgery, and opioid medications. The evidence for therapeutic approaches in treating people with pain is ever-increasing, resulting in treatments such as pain neuroscience education. This approach empowers those suffering pain by answering the question, “Why Do I Hurt?” Skilled education delivered to people in pain has shown dramatic responses in multiple studies. The more people know about their pain and what it really means, the less they have it. The mantra “Know pain, Know gain” reminds us of this impact.


Scott Hein, clinic director of Therapeutic Associates, Forest Grove Physical Therapy recently completed a new clinical certification!

Scott completed 6-months of intensive coursework to become certified as a Therapeutic Pain Specialist as of July 2016.

Completion of this program ensures that a Physical Therapist (PT) is utilizing the most up-to-date information and clinical advancements to assist patients in pain, and has demonstrated competency to do the following:

Become a certified, highly skilled, autonomous clinician with advanced proficiency in evaluation and treatment of chronic pain.

Make evidence-based practice an immediate reality in the clinic.

Enhance critical thinking and movement to improve a patient’s outcome of care.

Improve knowledge of current research related to the science of pain and how to treat it.

Please feel free to call the clinic to inquire more about what treatment approach Therapeutic Associates, Forest Grove Physical Therapy offers based on Scott’s work with the Therapeutic Pain Specialist program.

For the past three years, Bag&Baggage (Hillsboro’s resi­dent professional theatre compa­ny) has been embracing the Hal­loween season with a series of terrifying, thrilling murder mys­tery plays. Dial “M” For Murder and Rope were two of our most successful theatrical productions ever, bringing chills and thrills to thousands of audience members throughout October.

This season is no different; Bag&Baggage is proud to pres­ent the Pacific Northwest pre­miere of a powerful, haunting, and gripping tale of three wives, three bathtubs, and one terrify­ing serial killer: The Drowning Girls.

George Joseph Smith, or The Brides In Bath Murderer as he was called by the British press in the late 1920s, was dashing, charming, and a vicious murder­er. Smith was found guilty in the 1920s of marrying three differ­ent women and then drowning them in their baths for the insur­ance money. The question was; How could these three healthy women, all in the prime of life, be murdered in their bathtubs and leave no signs of a struggle? How could Smith get these women to first marry him, then sign over their personal wealth, and then succeed in killing them without any suspicion? The Brides In The Baths were one of Britian’s most sensational murder sprees, and The Drowning Girls intro­duces audiences to the victims, and to the murder method, in a powerful, lyrical, and ultimately redemptive way.

Bag&Baggage is delighted to be the first company in the Pa­cific Northwest to produce the show, and hope you will join us for a night of murder most foul! The Drowning Girls runs from October 13 – October 31 at The Venetian Theatre. Infor­mation can be found online at

Kevin KuntzWhen building your dream house, the heating and cooling systems are often an afterthought. Home builders can arrange them for you but wouldn’t it be nice to know the system you have in your home is properly sized and installed by experts? We will help you choose the best system for your home and install it to exacting standards.

At Hybrid all of our duct systems are installed by 10-30 year industry veterans. Quality counts in this area, not quantity. Without properly sized and installed ductwork the home will never be comfortable.

We install a minimum of two return air vents in homes no matter the size. Air movement is critical in comfort and equipment efficiency.

Furnaces are often installed before sheetrock, then used to dry out the home and keep it dry during construction. This voids every furnace manufacturer’s warranty. The furnace must not be used for construction dry out. OREGON code also does not allow the furnace to be put into operation until after the interior paint is complete. Hybrid adheres to code and warranty requirements during installation.

We screen all floor vents during construction and filter return air vents to prevent construction debris from getting into them. It’s not uncommon for us to pull out wood 2x4, plastic bottles, nails, and wood chips from the vents. If left unattended these items can reduce air flow and in some cases damage the ductwork.

Here at Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning we only sell to residential custom new construction homes, where we are working one on one with the homeowner, to provide the best possible system for their budget.

Janet Peters, Allstate AgentIt's not easy to think about: What would happen if you were to pass away? When it comes to protecting your loved ones with life insurance, it's important to separate fact from fiction. Learn the truth about five life insurance myths — it may change your perspective and lead you to make informed decisions about purchasing a policy.

I'm single, or married with no children, so I don't need life insurance. Life insurance may help your loved ones pay off your debts (like some private college loans, for instance) if you pass away. Planning early helps protect your loved ones from burdensome expenses. I can't afford life insurance. Life insurance can be very affordable for many people, depending on the coverage you’re looking for. You can start with a policy that fits your budget, and you may be able to purchase additional coverage later on. I'm a stay-at-home parent with no income. I don't need life insurance. You may not bring in a paycheck but you provide services that cost tens of thousands of dollars each year, including child care, daily transportation, home maintenance and cooking. If you pass away, life insurance may cover these costs. My beneficiaries will have to pay taxes on the proceeds from my life insurance policy. Your life insurance benefits are income-tax-free and do not have to be reported, according to the IRS.

I don't need life insurance once my children are adults. Life insurance pays for final costs, estate taxes, paying off any debt, or leaving an inheritance.

No matter where you are in life, it's important to help protect your loved ones and your assets with life insurance. If you have any questions, reach out to Janet at Allstate.
