VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerFall has arrived and the cold, wet weather is coming soon. It’s time to get your car ready for the months ahead. Here are some tips from the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE):

Have engine drivability problems such as hard starts, rough idling, stalling or diminished power corrected at a good repair shop.

Check your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, more if your driving is mostly stop-and-go or consists of frequent, short trips.

The cooling system should be flushed and refilled as recommended. The level, condition and concentration of the coolant should be checked periodically. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps, and hoses should be checked by a certified auto technician.

The heater and defroster must be in good working condition for passenger comfort and driver visibility.

Replace old windshield wiper blades, stock up on windshield washer solvent and carry an ice-scraper.

Have your mechanic check battery strength, scrape away corrosion from posts and cable connections; clean all surfaces; and re-tighten all connections.

Inspect all lights and bulbs; replace burned out bulbs; and periodically clean road grime from all lenses with a moistened cloth or towel.

Worn tires will be of little use in winter weather. Examine tires for remaining tread life, uneven wearing, and cupping; check the sidewalls for cuts and nicks. Rotate as recommended.

Don’t forget your spare, and be sure the jack is in good condition!

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallAmong unfamiliar terms in real estate, “escrow” ranks near the top. When a buyer and seller come to contract, but haven’t yet closed, the deal is said to be pending or “in escrow.”

Escrow fundamentally refers to a neutral third party, and in some states that function is held by an attorney.  In Oregon, we usually use a “title company”. One company usually provides both escrow services and issues title insurance.

The escrow officer is neutral, executing instructions by all parties, holding and disbursing money and recording deeds. They don’t endorse or approve terms or make sure any party is protected.

The title officer researches title, looking for troublesome issues. If all looks good, a title insurance policy is issued.

When buyer, seller and lender have finished preparing to close and all are in final agreement, escrow may be closed and the money and title transferred between the parties.

Escrow can also refer to an “escrow account” used for borrowers who prepay and allow their lender to hold money for payment of future tax and insurance bills.  Those funds belong to the borrower and the lender merely holds them and forwards them when the bill comes.

In seller-financed (not bank-financed) transactions, often an escrow is opened as an intermediary to account for payments made between buyer and seller over a period of years.

DR NGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburyAs a gynecologist, I am uniquely suited to listen to women of all ages. I am a board-certified gynecologist providing the full spectrum of gynecological outpatient and surgical services.

It is such a privilege to hear, on a daily basis, the concerns that many women share.  What is striking is the lack of information available to men and women, as it relates to their bodies and intimacy.

The other night in my office, I was able to have an open house to talk about the dilemmas women have regarding their anatomy and sexual response.

While some of this is relational, some of it is physical. These women asked questions about anatomy, hormones and solutions.  They each had unique problems and challenges. They all felt confused as to what direction to take. 

It was stunning to see the relief when they realized they were not alone in the problem and that there were solutions.

Whatever the concern, we meet you there, from menopausal symptoms to pain -- or life after cancer. 

We are here to help you have the intimate life you want.  We offer hormonal solutions, physical therapy, C02 laser treatments (Mona Lisa Touch) or dilator therapy.

We refer to counseling when necessary.  We are patient and compassionate.

In the realm of intimate concerns, you are not alone and there are solutions.  Give us a call.

EVCOT - Jonathan Wisniewski, DVMIt’s more likely since recreational marijuana became legal in Oregon, your pet may come across the drug in one of its many forms. Just as you would be watchful to make sure your dog or cat isn’t gobbling down chocolate or pills that were dropped on the floor, keep an eye out for marijuana products.

All parts of the marijuana plant (cannabis sativa) are toxic to pets.

The components in marijuana act on the brain and influence the interpretation or stimuli from sensory organs. Animals may get excited or depressed. They may be nervous, restless and disoriented.

Drugs in concentrated oils and baked goods are much more dangerous and can cause severe respiratory depression. Smaller dogs are at larger risk.

There’s a large margin of safety between doses that cause early behavioral effects and doses that are lethal. Fatalities, though uncommon, are typically caused when a pet stops breathing from being overly sedate.

In addition to behavioral changes, a pet may suffer vomiting, diarrhea, urinary incontinence, tremors, weakness or dilated pupils. Symptoms may last 18-72 hours.

Since toxins are eliminated by urine, fluids will help to speed recovery. Induced vomiting may be recommended. Severe cases can be treated with intravenous lipid emulsion therapy to help bind the fat-soluble toxin and prevent additional effect.

Make sure your pet recovers in a safe place where they can’t fall off furniture or otherwise become injured.

Brought to you by Justin Harnish, Harnish Properties - Real Estate INSIDER -


HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishIf you are looking for a home to buy, you may wonder whether to seek out the services of a buyer’s agent.

A buyer’s agent or buyer’s broker is a licensed real estate broker who specializes in the representation of a buyer looking to purchase real estate.

A buyer agency agreement is similar to a listing agreement or listing contract, only the buyer and the broker have a contractual agreement to work with one another in the purchase of real estate.

What’s the difference between a buyer’s agent and a listing agent?

In Oregon, many brokers perform both functions, but a dedicated buyer’s agent is tasked (contractually or not contractually) with representing the interests of a buyer throughout the purchase process.  A listing agent is contractually tasked with the listing, marketing and the representation of the interests of the seller.

Some buyers choose to be contractually bound to a buyer’s agent, some choose not to. The buyer broker agreement, like the listing contract, solidifies the commitment that the buyer and broker have to one another throughout the process.

Who pays the buyer’s agent? When purchasing an active listing, both the buyer’s agent and listing agent are paid by the commission agreed upon in the listing contract with each particular seller. Occasionally a buyer’s agent will be paid directly by the buyer, but that is rare.

No matter whether you’re a buyer or a seller, it’s a good idea to have representation!

LAKE GROVE DENTAL - Charles BranenThe kickoff of the school sports season brings safety awareness to the forefront.

As dental providers, Fall is when we see an increase in sports-related injuries to the head and face. While the importance of head and eye protection is well-known, mouth guards are becoming more common to protect the hard and soft tissues of the mouth.

“Mouth guards create a cushion that provides stabilization of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) while also helping to prevent injury to the joint,” according to The Academy of Sports Dentistry. “They can also substantially reduce the type of injury affecting the soft tissues — such as the lips and gum tissues surrounding the teeth. In general, mouth guards can help provide protection against numerous serious injuries.”

There are different types of mouth guards available: boil-and-bite mouth guards (available at retail stores) and custom, dentist-made mouth guards. The thermoplastic boil-and-bite type provided to school athletes are usually the low-end, poorer-fitting mouth guards.

Custom-fitted mouth guards are fabricated in a dental office from a cast to accurately fit your teeth. They are typically made using acrylic and contain hard outer layers and soft inner layers for comfort. Custom trays are more comfortable to wear and stay positioned around the teeth during athletic events, enhancing breathing and performance.

Custom guards are relatively inexpensive at $59 in our office and take about 24 hours to make.

PETROFF CENTER PLASTIC SURGERY & MEDI-SPA - Dr. Mark PetroffEyes are the windows to the soul – which sounds lovely, unless the eyes are surrounded by sags, bags and wrinkles.

Blepharoplasty may not sound very poetic, but its result can be.

Also known as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift, blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery may be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision.

Blepharoplasty is ideal for the correcting:

· Loose, sagging, and/or folded upper eyelids that may limit vision

· Puffy fat deposits in the upper eyelids

· Under-eye bags

· Excess skin in the lower eyelids

· Fine wrinkles in the lower eyelids

· Tear trough furrows that create the appearance of “dark circles”

Eyelid surgery is performed in our state-of-the-art surgery center with local anesthesia and IV sedation. The procedure usually takes 60-90 minutes.

Incisions are made along the eyelids in inconspicuous places, such as the natural creases of the upper lids for an upper-eyelid procedure and just below the lash line on the lower lids for a lower-eyelid procedure. If no skin needs to be removed, the incision can be made inside the lower eyelid, resulting in no visible scars.

Eyelid surgery is a delicate, highly customized procedure, particularly on the lower eyelids, so the skill and experience of your surgeon is crucial to achieving an excellent result.

Dr. Petroff specializes in facial plastic surgery and has been in practice for more than 25 years.

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallRecently a homeowner discovered their beautiful backyard fountain and garden were placed over the lot line onto a neighbor’s property.

The mistake was made years before their purchase and compounded by successive owners over time. Now, the only fix may be tearing out a gorgeous yard.

Knowing what you own, sell, or are buying takes more than looking at fences and shrubs which wander over the years.

A plat map shows the land’s exact location on paper, but usually there are no obvious marks directly on the land.

A good start is a careful read of the plat map and of the land. You may find clues as to how the map and the physical plot of land either line up (or don’t).

If you suspect an “encroachment,” where someone has taken over land they don’t actually own, the next step may be to hire a surveyor to re-locate the corners and tell you definitively where the line is. Encroachments can usually be remedied with some neighborly cooperation, and help from an attorney to do it right.

While additions, yard improvements and water features typically add value to your home, misplaced improvements can cause trouble.

Your Realtor® should be able to help you ask key questions, read the map and the land with you, advise you on your options, find a surveyor and attorney, and disclose properly to buyers if you’re selling.

Done right, good fences do make good neighbors. With a little extra care, you can get it right!

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerAuto safety is of paramount importance — not just for drivers and their passengers — but other vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians on the road.

September is a good time to think about child safety, with kids headed back to school and Child Passenger Safety Week on the horizon.

The Oregon DMV reminds drivers that the speed limit is 20 mph or less in any of the following situations:

· Anytime a yellow light of a school speed sign is flashing

· Between 7 am and 5 pm on school days

· Crosswalks near school grounds when children are present

Don’t pass a stopped school bus! Drivers must stop on the street or highway 20 feet or more from any school bus that has stopped and is flashing red warning lights.

This applies both to vehicles approaching from the rear and from the opposing lanes. All lanes of traffic must stop for the school bus, except in opposing lanes if the highway is divided with a center median. No vehicle may proceed until the bus resumes motion and has turned off the red warning lights.

Every 33 seconds, one child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts.

Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 18-25, is sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Visit its website, safercar.com, to find car seat installation instructions and a search-by-zip-code list of nearby car seat inspection stations.

Safe travels!

DR. NGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburySeptember 4 is World Sexual Health Day. It is a good time to reflect on where we are with female sexuality, here in Portland and worldwide.

In this country, we have sexual freedom. Women across the world are not beneficiaries of such rights. Mutilating procedures are being performed and women are living in fear of death if they cannot prove chastity.

The contrast to what we experience here in the U.S. is striking. We, too, have our challenges. However, much of the media attention for sexual dysfunction is geared towards men.

There are incessant erectile dysfunction commercials on the television, with little attention being aired about women’s struggles and solutions.

Women are sexual too, and need good information about where to get help. This is especially true if we are supporting men to ‘stay in the game’.

We all want to have a fulfilling, mutually satisfying intimate life. My practice is devoted to meeting the needs of women’s health. Sexuality is a part of this.

I offer solutions to help women ‘stay in the game’ too, as a Board-Certified Gynecologist and Surgeon. We do not trivialize problems and we meet women where they are.

Call for a consultation; we take most insurance plans. The first call is the hardest step and we will answer with respect.

EVCOT - Jonathan WisniewskiWhen you’re out enjoying the water with your dog, be aware of the signs of cyanobacteria, which can make pets fatally ill.

Cyanobacteria (better known as blue-green algae) grows in nutrient-rich warm water. It prefers stagnant water sources like lakes and reservoirs. The algae typically blooms in late summer months, from July through September. It can also be found in marine environments, though it’s rare. This was noted in Rio de Janeiro just prior to the Olympics.

The main route of transmission involves ingestion (drinking water), but smaller amounts can be absorbed through mucous membranes such as gums, tissue around eyes or the rectum.

There are many types of cyanobacteria, but three general classes of toxin are reported: 

· The first causes liver failure and clotting problems. Clinical signs include lethargy, vomiting/diarrhea, weakness, pale gums, hemorrhage and bruising.

· Two types of neurotoxin cause irreversible injury of brain cells and lead to seizures. Early signs of neurotoxins include drooling, excessive tearing, urination/defecation. When seizures occur, the pet is unlikely to survive. Treatment of neurotoxin involves seizure medications, fluids and supportive care.

Clinical signs often develop very shortly after exposure (as soon as 30 minutes after exposure of a large enough dose) and are often rapidly fatal.

Preventing exposure is key. If you’re out at a river, lake or park and there are blue-green algae advisories marked, stay out of the water and do not let your pets drink the water.

It is no secret that behind most, if not all, successful academic institutions (public or private) is a strong group of supportive citizens and financial backers who desire and even demand excellence.

So it is here in Lake Oswego, we as a community have benefitted from the foundation that a quality education provides, protecting community peace, promoting achievement in life, lifting our pride and stabilizing real estate values.

Our schools continue to excel and are the backbone to our stable and strong real property values. We must continue to invest in our school system just as we invest in our homes. 

It’s a fact that home values in Lake Oswego are full percentage points higher and more stable than some of the surrounding communities. We are lucky to live where do and we must not lose sight of that fact!
