THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsSmall and mid-sized businesses often find it difficult to determine if they should rent or own commercial property. Purchasing commercial real estate is a complex, often difficult process with a fair amount of risk attached to it. Nevertheless, a commercial property purchase allows you to depreciate the property and reduce your taxable income, as well as giving you greater control over your overhead costs. If you’re ready to own your own commercial real estate, I’ve got a few tips to guide you.

Ask yourself a lot of questions: The biggest question to ask is “Are you ready to make an investment of this size?” If you are ready, you’ll need to grapple with issues relating to what kind of location you need, how much work you’re willing to put into the property, and how much risk you can tolerate.

Evaluate the property: You should visit many different properties to figure out which properties you fit with. Your situation and needs are unique, and not every building will fit them. Location, physical condition, allowable uses, adequacy of access, and the opportunity for expansion or leasing should all be considered.

Conduct a feasibility study: Feasibility studies are a great way to stress test potential properties. Study your business’ market, the market(s) of your potential properties, and your own finances to determine how viable your options are, and how much margin for error you have.

Call the Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips: The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips can advise and assist you every step of the way.

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Stan RobinsonPutting down a roof coating is one of the best things you can do to extend the life of your flat roof. A properly applied roof coating will reduce stress on your HVAC system, protect against leaks, and can save you money—in more than one way!

But traditional water-based coatings like acrylic can degrade from UV rays and soften under standing water; that’s why at Pacific West Roofing we use a silicone restoration membrane to coat your existing flat roof. Silicone has a number of advantages to acrylic:

• It’s incredibly durable, withstanding extreme temperatures, wind-driven sand, hail, harsh UV rays, and pooled or ponding water.

• It’s energy efficient, shielding your building from

the sun so your energy use is reduced, saving you money.

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Brian Jarvis• It’s easy to use; a roof in good condition may just need minor repairs around pipe flashings, if any repairs are needed at all! After a thorough pressure washing, the roof is primed and coated, and can be touched up with a brush or roller.

Best of all, silicone roof coatings are amazingly costeffective, and can add years to your roof. While a full roof replacement will typically cost around $8/foot, you can have a silicone restoration membrane laid down for about half that price.

With 15-20 years of life, a silicone coating may be just the thing your roof needs. For superior roofing options, give Pacific West Roofing a call at (503) 635-8706.

NORTHWEST WOMEN'S CLINIC - Dr. Michael DavisMany of my patients bring fears and concerns about getting an epidural in labor. Happily, this leads to a discussion of the facts and the science surrounding epidurals. A review of 38 studies comparing just under 10,000 women who USED epidurals to women who did NOT in labor determined the following risks:

Lower Risks: Epidural users reported a reduction in pain scores of 3.3 on average after getting an epidural, reporting on a scale of 1 (minimal pain) to 10 (worst pain imaginable). Epidural users were less likely to need any other pain medications, and babies were at a decreased risk of developing acidosis.

Higher Risks: Epidural users had more trouble emptying the urinary bladder, as well as more risk of difficulty moving the legs; this is not a surprise, given how the epidural medicine works. Also, epidural users were slightly more likely (1.2 times) to get oxytocin during labor, and the average length of labor was 13.6 minutes longer for epidural users.

NO DIFFERENCE: There are many myths about epidurals the study found to be false:

No difference in overall risk of cesarean delivery

No difference in risk of backache

No difference in five minute Apgar score

No difference in maternal satisfaction with pain relief

My best advice is to have a discussion with your labor and delivery provider before and during the labor process to help you decide if an epidural is right for you.

KUHNHAUSEN'S FURNITURE SHOWCASE - Shelley Kuhnhausen HowardYou just bought that piece of furniture from Kuhnhausen’s that ties that whole room together. Whether it’s that solid cherry buffet you’ve been dreaming of for months, or the chic leather chair that will go perfect by your lamp for reading, a new furniture addition can be exciting. Now that you have your new furniture, here are Kuhnhausen’s tips for taking care of it:

• In order to enhance and protect the beauty of wood, use a silicone-free polish. Guardsman has both a convenient spray as well as cream polish, both of which we carry. With a unique blend of natural oils, Guardsman offers your wood pieces luster with no artificial gloss or oily residue.

• Full grain leather is the strongest upholstery material available. To keep it strong for you and your family, re

move any dust and apply a leather conditioner to keep your leather pieces supple and nourished. It’s as easy as that!

• For upholstered furniture, you’ll want to follow the fabric manufacturer’s recommendation. The typical codes, “S” and “W”, advise you to use a solvent-based cleaning product or a water-based cleaning product, respectively.

• If your piece has loose pillow backs and/or seats, turning and rotating the backs and seats will ensure a longer cushion and fabric life. Vacuum your upholstered furniture to remove everyday dust and keep your fabric looking fabulous.

If you’re ready for a new furniture addition, head to Kuhnhausen’s. We offer quality furniture and would love to help you with your next furniture purchase!

NIELSEN'S JEWELERS - Jan NielsenJewelry is all about the story behind it. So here’s a story for you: Just the other day a woman came in with her fiancée carrying a diamond ring made of white gold. The ring was her grandmother’s, and had been with her family for 75 years. She loved the ring because it was her grandmother’s, but she could never see herself wearing it.

That’s when I told her all about Nielsen’s jewelry redesign service. We are able to take the gems off of your old jewelry and recast the metal into the custom design of your choice. If you’d like a little luster added, we can match loose gemstones and diamonds to your gems for a completely redesigned and totally beautiful piece.

Using both wax models and computer-assisted design, we ensure that your new piece of jewelry is exactly what you want—before we ever cast it!

If you’d prefer to keep just the stones, don’t limit yourself to just rings. We can help you create that perfect necklace, those earrings that make the whole room stop and stare, even that bracelet that you never want to take off.

We ended up designing a new piece for the woman and her fiancée, adding a few diamonds and sapphires to grandma’s recast white gold to create a stunning new ring. They loved it, and if you have any jewelry you’re looking to redesign, we can create a piece you’ll love too.

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonNew printers for both consumers and business have a cautionary warning. Both buy on price or perceived savings while rarely having knowledge of each printer’s associated cost-per page (CPP).

New printer models generally replace a previous model with similar capabilities. Rarely do new models possess startling new capabilities. Printers have a market life cycle of three to four years until replaced by another new model for that segment, just like cars. The new Ford Fairlane, replaces the previous Fairlane. However gasoline is gasoline.

If you use aftermarket factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges which provide 30% to 60% savings, there is another key factor involved with buying a new model printer.

New model printers use “new to the world” cartridge(s) only capable of working in a specific model or series. Each new model or series’ OEM cartridges are your only alternative for a year, or more, until aftermarket factories catch up with collected empty / recycled cartridges, reverse engineered chips, parts and the appropriate ink or toner formulation. So your cartridge cost and associated CPP will be full retail.

Furthermore, most printers ship with an “Introductory”, “Set Up” or “Starter” cartridge(s) with a fraction of the Standard or Low Yield cartridge(s)’ stated “page rating”, let alone the High Yield version with significantly higher page rating and as a consequence a much lower CPP.

How do we approach customers’ printer purchases? Know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by to learn how to get the most value for your money.

ELMER'S FLAG & BANNER, KITES TOO! - David AnchelWhether you want to show your American pride, your support for our armed forces, or want to display a more custom message, flying your flag on a quality in-ground flagpole is the best way to do it.

But how to know what pole is best for you? When considering an in-ground flagpole for your home or business, here’s a few things you’ll need to keep in mind:

Height and Location - A flagpole should look good (proportional) in relation to the house or building that it stands next to or in front of. Choose an area that is open, without trees or powerlines that can tangle with your flag. Then choose a flagpole height that’s within a few feet of your roofline as seen from the street.

Choose a Style and Finish - Telescoping, Sectional, and One-Piece are some of the more popular styles. Sometimes one is more suitable than another depending on the site and application. Popular finishes include satin, brushed aluminum, and a wide variety of powder coated colors.

Call Before You Dig - Whether you choose to have one of Elmer’s experts install your flagpole or you want to set it up yourself, always “call in a locate” first. Dialing 811 before you dig will give your local utility companies a chance to verify that it’s safe to install a flagpole in your chosen location.

Do you have more questions about in-ground flagpoles? Feel free to give us a call, send us an email, or stop by anytime.

Before departure:

Talk to your doctor about your travels plans. They can provide a vacation override to allow you an early refill on your maintenance medications.

Update vaccinations: include a tetanus update if you are not current, and a flu vaccine, especially during flu season.

Pack a travel health kit including over the counter items:

Antidiarrheal medication; Antihistamine/Decongestant; Anti-motion sickness medication; Acetominophen, aspirin, or ibuprofen for pain or fever; Mild laxative and antacid; Cough suppressant/expectorant/drops; Antifungal and antibacterial ointments/creams and bandages; 1% hydrocortisone cream.

During your trip:

Practice good hand and food hygiene to prevent traveler’s diarrhea caused by improper food handling

For areas/countries with mosquito/tick borne illnesses, use insect repellant containing DEET (30%50%) or picaridin (up to 15%); do a thorough tick check after outdoor activities.

Practice pedestrian/motor vehicle safety; traffic/vehicular accidents are a common cause of injury while traveling

If you or your doctor ever feel the need, don’t hesitate to consult a travel expert.

Safe travels!

PARR LUMBER - Marshall SmithFew home improvements can pay for themselves like new siding. Siding is a home’s first defense against wind and rain and is probably the largest contributor to a home’s curb appeal. Parr Lumber experts will help you choose the right siding products to increase the value and improve the look of your home while also protecting it from the weather.

Several factors should be considered when deciding on the type of siding to install, including durability, appearance, cost, maintenance, installation requirements, and ease of replacement.

Fiber cement siding by James Hardie® is the most popular horizontal lap siding in the country and is available in standard primed grey or several pre-painted colors with patented ColorPlus® technology. The ColorPlus process applies 50% more paint than a typical painter and adds beauty and durability. Fiber cement is attractive and extremely durable. It carries up to a 30-year warranty but can be more difficult to install than other siding options since it is heavy and brittle.

Parr Lumber also carries an excellent selection of natural wood and engineered wood siding. Though it is expensive and requires annual maintenance, wood siding is an attractive choice that can be stained to preserve its wood grain. Engineered wood siding, such as Smartside® from LP Building Products®, has an authentic wood grain appearance and comes with a 50-year warranty.

Parr Lumber employees can help you understand the benefits of each product and walk you through the installation process. Speak with one of our friendly, knowledgeable salespeople today.

LIVING RIGHT SENIOR PLACEMENT  -  Jennifer Cook-Buman When considering a move for yourself or a loved one into a senior living community, the options can be overwhelming, and the information confusing, with several types of licensures for senior communities available.

Continuing Care: Requires an upfront buy-in and continued monthly payments, and one must be independent upon move in, in most cases. Has care available to meet nearly every foreseeable need to end of life.

Assisted Living: Provides assistance with the activities of daily living – medication management, mobility, etc. To what extent can vary. 3 meals a day are included, and transportation to shopping and medical appointments is typically included as well.

Memory Care: Designed to care for those with dementia diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Caregivers have received more training, and there are more of them per resident than assisted living.

Adult Foster Care Homes: Single family homes that have been built or converted to house up to 5 residents. Onsite caregivers assist with all care needs. Care homes are licensed differently and their abilities vary with their license level. Generally, a quieter environment than assisted living, with fewer activities.

State regulations set a minimum standard for each type of licensure, but each facility has the option to offer greater care capabilities than what is legally required, e.g. some assisted living communities can accommodate special diets, even lift devices, others cannot. It’s important to check with each community and not to rely on others for this information.

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonDo “bargain” (cheap) printers save you money? Rarely. Consumers and businesses are sold printers and buy on price, without understanding a printer’s actual cost-per-page (CPP).

Office supply stores, warehouse clubs (limited selection / knowledge) and general merchandise big chain stores (limited selection / knowledge), have printers “on special” for $60 or $70 with $40, $50+ in savings from “regular pricing”. Buyer beware. The least expensive printers have higher CPP. You’ll spend more money for cartridges with a high CPP.

Fully costed CPP costs range as follows: inkjet from $0.05 - $0.30+, black laser from $0.01 to $0.05, color laser from $0.06 to $0.25.

Spending $30 or $40 more on a better inkjet model, or $100 for a laser printer now, saves hundreds (or thousands) of dollars over time, because CPP costs are significantly lower. There are several superior performing and low CPP inkjet printers currently available for about $100. Why save $40 or $50 for an inferior printer?

And remember if you’re interested in factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges, buying the newest printer, which replaced a virtually identical model, means only OEM cartridges are available for a year or more, so you can’t reduce further your CPP for quite a while, with aftermarket cartridges.

How we approach customers’ printer purchases: know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by our store to learn how to get the most value for your money.
