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.

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.

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Stan RobinsonSummer is a popular time to replace your home’s roof. If a metal roof is on your list of roofing options, consider these pros and cons.

Pros of metal roofing:

Metal roofing is durable. A metal roof should last as long as your house, and will survive windstorms, snow and rain water. It’s also resistant to mildew, fire, insect infestation and rot.

Most metal roofs are noncombustible, earning them a Class A fire rating. Though warranties, many companies guarantee their metal roofing product to last between 20 and 50 years.

It’s lightweight. Metal roofing runs from 1 to 1.5 pounds per sq. ft. compared to 7.5 to 10 pounds per sq. ft. for concrete tile. Metal roofing may be applied directly on top of existing roof materials on battens.

Disadvantages of metal roofing:

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Brian JarvisIt’s expensive. The cost of a metal roof ranges between $150 and $600 per 100 square feet; but you save on maintenance expenses in the future.

Accessibility. It can be difficult to walk on a metal roof in wet weather and when moss or algae have grown on it. And, cleaning off storm debris can be challenging.

Before you decide on the type of roof for your house, be sure you consider your home’s style and the area you live in.

NIELSEN'S JEWELERS - Jan NielsenWhile savoring a glass of wine at one of my favorite Portland restaurants, I overheard this conversation:

"Oh, is that a new necklace? I love it!"

"Yes, Bill gave it to me for our anniversary. Ten years, can you believe that? He said he wanted me to know that he couldn't imagine being married to anyone else."

Attention, all men out there! Women love it when you give them jewelry.

There’s just nothing like your significant other selecting something with only you in mind. Giving jewelry for a special day or event transforms the piece from a thing to a story.

Women especially love telling the story of how their husband or boyfriend gave them that special piece of jewelry.

And, what’s more: Getting her a piece she really likes. That’s why we keep 'Wish Lists' for our customers. Men love shopping here; yet, they are sometimes clueless on what to buy. But when we know their wife, we point them in the right direction.

And, ladies, make sure we get to know you and you create those wish lists for us! That way, when men come into our store, we can give them hints and point them in the right direction. Men want that special gift they select to be loved and worn.

And, for the story to be told.

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsWhether you’re looking to raise capital, limit your personal liability or create a business that stands the test of time, there’s no better choice than filing articles of incorporation to form a corporation. Here are five steps to address first.

Appoint directors. Every corporation needs a board of directors to be considered legally valid, and their names should be included on the incorporation documents. Your board will have enormous influence over the future of your company, so choose wisely.

Issue stock. Every corporation must have shareholders. This means authorized (but unsold) stock must be listed in the articles of incorporation, and a formal resolution must be passed approving their sale.

Register an EIN. A Employer Identification Number (EIN) is like your business’s social security number. You’ll need it to file taxes, open a corporate bank account and (most importantly) get paid. The IRS makes it easy to obtain an EIN on their website.

Craft a shareholders’ agreement. Though not technically required, a shareholders’ agreement prevents co-founders from suddenly selling their shares to an outside interest, while also establishing contingencies if a founder loses control of their stock due to divorce or bankruptcy.

Hire a corporate lawyer. You need an experienced business attorney to draft your articles of incorporation. They will ensure your business is protected and ready to succeed.

KUHNHAUSEN'S FURNITURE SHOWCASE - Shelley Kuhnhausen HowardWho says a space-saving storage bed has to put function before style?

That’s certainly not the case with Whittier Woods’ Mantel Storage Bed—available now at Kuhnhausen’s Furniture Showcase!

What I like about the Mantel bed is how it blends “antique” design principles with modern aesthetics, producing a truly original piece of art.

Built out of American alder hardwoods, the raised panels and imposing wood finish are straight out of the 18th century. But because this is a Whittier product, the elegant design doesn’t impede 21st century functionality. The WHITTIER WOOD - The McKenzie Collection presents an atmosphere of style and elegance.McKenzie Mantel Bed comes with six capacious drawers, each with ball bearing drawer slides. The use of strong, square lines and lack of overt ornamentation on the wood panels make the McKenzie collection indubitably modern, without sacrificing that heirloom style.

Whittier Wood uses English dovetail drawer construction as well as mortise and tenon joinery for added strength and stability. The McKenzie collection is available in glazed antique cherry and caffè finish.

And for the nature lovers out there, you can rest easy knowing that Whittier Wood products are certified by the international Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.

So what are you waiting for? Stop and shop at Kuhnhausen’s Furniture Showcase today!

ELMER'S FLAG & BANNER, KITES TOO! - David AnchelIf you’ve ever seen a U.S. soldier in full uniform, you may have wondered why the flag patch on their right shoulder is affixed “backwards.”

In other words, why is the star field on the right-hand corner of the flag, rather than the left?

The answer has everything to do with the rectangular subset of the American flag that has 50 white stars and blue backing. It’s typically called the “union” or canton.

According to the flag code, when worn on either the left or right shoulder, the American flag patch should face forward (to the observer’s right). Per the Department of Defense, this “gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward.”

If that still doesn’t make sense, imagine a normal standard bearer marching forward while carrying the American flag. The star field would come first, followed by the red and white bars. Anything else would look absurd.

Bonus flag trivia: Can tearing an American flag ever be done respectfully? Consider the story of Robert E. Peary, the first person to reach the geographic North Pole. Like any good explorer, Peary planted a U.S. flag there.

But Peary actually made several attempts to reach the North Pole, and tore off scraps of the flag at each of his successive “farthest norths.” Thus, we remember Peary as the only man in history to be honored for ripping up an American flag.
