The Beaverton Resource Guide (BRG) is a free monthly community paper for the city of Beaverton, Oregon. Cedar House Media published the first edition in April of 2011 with the help of the city and the Farmers Market. That first issue was 16 pages. Today, just over one year later, the paper is 32 pages and sponsored by a huge cross section of the city from shopping malls like Washington Square and Cedar Hills Crossing to public entities such as the police and fire departments, the Visitor’s Association (WCVA), the Senior Citizen’s Advisory Committee and the park district (THPRD) to name a few.

Beaverton has so many positive attributes and many go unnoticed. The BRG is our way of giving back to the community by highlighting what makes our city a great place to live, shop and work. With a focus on small or local businesses, we’d like to encourage our neighbors to first visit nearby businesses and give them a chance before moving on.

Absolutely. With our unique design, community news and loyal readership of residents who agree with our philosophy of “Shop Local - Give Local - Stay Local“, your ad will get seen by those who are your best customer prospects. We don’t print massive quantities and mail them out to uninterested parties. Our papers are located in convenient, local, high traffic locations as well as small businesses ready to be picked up by those wanting to learn about what’s local and that means YOU!

If you'd like a copy for yourself or want to pick up a few for your business, drop by our office or go to any of these participating locations: New Seasons Market, Dairy Queen, THPRD facilities or Starbucks. By location, try: - Farmers Market, City Park (red newsstands), library, Powell's Books, city hall; - Walgreens, 24 Hour Fitness, branch library, Big Al's, Ava Roasteria; RiteAid, Albertson's, Thriftway.

If you would like to place an ad or submit an article for consideration, please contact us by email or phone.

THPRD: connecting people, parks and natureDistrict making a splash with its new water playground

T he Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District has introduced a new

recreational amenity to the Beaverton area this summer: a water playground, or “splash pad,” at Conestoga Recreation & Aquatic Center.The facility – the rst of its kind in THPRD’s 57-year history – is located at9985 SW 125th Avenue, right next toSouthridge High School in south Beaverton.The splash pad features above-ground toys and in-ground and wall nozzles

that spray water in different patterns and directions. It is the perfect place to cool off on hot summer days. And it’s not just for kids; adults can join in, too, and the whole place is ADA-accessible.

There are four computer-controlled zones (toddler, teen, family and waterfall) that users can activate by pressing large buttons. Each zone runs for a set time period, then turns off until activated again. The computer also varies where the water sprays. That unpredictability only adds to the fun.

The splash pad uses a recirculating water system with ltration like a swimming pool’s. Water is collected, sent to an underground tank, ltered and treated, and pumped back out to the splash pad toys and nozzles.

The splash pad is part of an extensive upgrade at Conestoga funded by THPRD’s 2008 voter-approved bond measure. The Park District has completed two other major bond projects so far this year: the redevelopment of Camille Park and the expansion of the Elsie Stuhr Center for users “55 and better.”Meanwhile, construction on numerous other bond projects has started. For

information, visit

THPRD’s new splash pad at Conestoga Recreation & Aquatic Center – the rst of its kind in the district – opened this summer. The water playground has been a popular place for children to cool off on warm days.

Grand opening celebration planned for Aug. 22THPRD will celebrate the completion of its bond measure project at Conestoga Recreation & Aquatic Center with a grand opening on Aug. 22 from 3 to 7:30 p.m. The public is invited. The event will feature free use of the new splash pad and tness room, free swimming, and other fun activities. Refreshments will be provided. A brief dedication ceremony with ribbon-cutting is planned for 6 p.m.

My Masterpiece Art Studio is a unique place for people to

discover the power in their artistic expression. The studio was formed by two mothers when art cur-riculum was stripped from local schools, leaving students with no exposure to the arts. Now, famil-ies can drop into the open studio in Beaverton that features 3,000 square feet of space to spread out and paint, sculpt, draw, collage or print using high quality non-toxic art materials. Take a class; there are professionally instructed lessons available for artists of all ages and levels of ability. My Masterpiece Art Studio is also a great place to get together with friends and fam-ily to celebrate a birthday or special event. Classes, camps, and parties are offered to inspire anyone to create their very own masterpiece. Throughout the year there are spe-cial workshops and themes based on holidays and the seasons. The most important idea behind My Masterpiece Art Studio is that there is never any pressure to do anything

Looking for fun things to do this summer and need some ideas? Well, you've come to the right section of the paper. Below are a few suggestions to begin with but over the coming months, we'll add more places to go and more details to help you find the perfect place to play!

Carrots! Raw or Cooked? For my fam-ily, it’s normally 'eat them raw' since

I can’t get my husband and son to eat them cooked. It's a texture thing I suppose. So we munch on them raw or blend them into smoothies. The other day I bought some baby carrots from the Beaverton Farm-ers Market and set out to roast them. My husband was skeptical. I was too but de-

Ingredients2 bunches Baby Carrots (1 1/2 lbs. once trimmed); Wash them thoroughly; Leave the skin on or peel them if you like.

3 Tbs Olive Oil (2 Tbs for tossing the carrots in and 1 Tbs mixed with fresh herbs to drizzle on the roasted carrots)

2 Tbs Honey (I used local organic honey)

2 Tbs Orange Juice

Salt (to taste)

Cracked Black Pepper (to taste)

Fresh Herbs (minced) - We grow our own herbs in our garden so I decided to use what we have in surplus right now: Parsley and Dill. You could also use Thyme.


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Blanch the carrots in a pot of boiling water for about 5 minutes and then drain.

3. Mix together the 2 Tbs of olive oil, orange juice and toss the carrots to coat.

4. Line the carrots on to a baking tray, cover with foil and roast for about 10 minutes.

Restaurant Spotlight:In 2004 MiNGO opened at The Round in Beaverton under Michael

Cronan and Michael Tocchini. Along a parallel vein to its cousin and longtime successful restaurant, Caffe Mingo in NW Portland, the Michaels’ follow a genuine, old-style method to running a restaurant. Welcoming customers as if into their own home and adhering to the slow food philosophy and local food to table concepts of Italy are the mainstays of the MiNGO genre. Clean and simple food, wine that speaks of its land, craft cocktails, creating a family out of staff and friends out of customers;

5. Remove from the oven and toss the carrots in honey, salt and pepper and then line them up again on the baking try and bake, uncovered, for another 10 minutes.

6. Mix 1 Tbs of olive oil with minced herbs. Place the roasted carrots on a plate and drizzle this herbed olive oil on the carrots.

The Beaverton Round provides a lovely setting for MiNGO’s patio in the summer; with grass and a fountain running, the kids are happy while the parents dine! We take reservations, can accommodate large parties and offer happy hour most days.

termined to cook up a carrot my husband would eat. I ended up roasting them short-er than required and that left a good little crunch to it. Success! Both my husband and son loved them. I consider this a great life accomplishment.

This dish would go very well with any poultry or meat entree. They are also very good to snack on.

Visitors can meet and greet friends, listen to live music scattered throughout the downtown, browse the numer-ous independent shops, tour the Beaverton History Center, dine al fresco at Gloria’s Secret Café or Decarli’s, and get a haircut at Beaverton Barber & Coin, Jaleh’s Hair Fashions, or Avenue Salon &

with complimentary dancing at Arthur Murray Studios starting at 9:15.

Regular hours for participating businesses are extended until 8 p.m. – and in some cases 9 p.m. or later – for

this once-a-month evening event. First Friday has grown from 27 to

44 independent businesses since the event began in May. Special enter-tainment changes each month, but there is always live music, arts and crafts demonstrations, a silent auction of original artwork, over a dozen participating restaurants, beauty and health services, and special discounts from friendly merchants.

Starting in August, many First Friday businesses will offer visitors

their products or services. Guests can complete an entry form at each participating business; the more busi-nesses they visit during the evening, the more chances they have to win. At the end of the evening, all the slips from all participating businesses will be collected and a dozen winners will

Summer is winding down and store shelves are stocked with

school supplies. Back to school shopping is the second largest

the holiday shopping season. Budgeting for back to school shopping can be an overwhelming task: the National Retail Federation reports the average family plans to spend $606.40 this year on back to school clothing and supplies, up from $548.72 in 2010.

After a Lung Biopsy November 2011 my Naturopath referred me to Dr David Young. The pain under my right shoulder had become unbearable. How grateful I am that the pain is gone. He is now treating my Ribs and I can finally breath easier but am still relying on a portable lung. Dr. Young has given me hope and I highly recommend him for all bodily malfunctions.

Dr. Young got right to the source of my pain and after 4 treatments of his Viceral Manipulation, I finally could sleep without pain. What a relief, I am so grateful.

After being treated for a serious accident injuring my pelvis and knee, I decided to visit Young Chiro-practic. Not being able to go up the stairs for treat-ment, Dr. Young came to me in the parking lot. He assessed my body and after 3 or 4 visits, I walked up stairs for a few more visits. I believe because Dr Young had survived a near fatal accident himself. He was more aware of my own bodily trauma. This man is such a gift. Thank you Dr Young.

I’ve been designing and making

as a hobby but soon became a pas-sion and creative outlet. I have al-ways liked making things, such as weaving, and growing things, such as beautiful colorful roses—and I have always liked rocks! I would pick up the eye-catching stones along the railroad tracks near where I lived as a child and take them home. I had a great agate col-lection as a kid and still do today thanks to my frequent beachcomb-ing along the Oregon coast.

The rock thing never left me -

elry using pretty rocks from all over the world. I am drawn to the color, translucence, and shape of

-quoise, Peruvian opal, amethyst, citrine and others. Good stones

By the middle of the 20th cen-tury, Beaverton had long ago

shed its rural image. The town had transitioned from a tiny 1868 farm-ing community to a 1920s town with the slogan “City of Homes”. It was now poised to take on the challenges of the second half of the 20th century as a city of indus-trial and commercial development, diversity, and educational/recre-ational/cultural opportunities.

Beaverton’s Senior Cit-izens Advisory Commit-tee serves as a liaison between Beaverton’s senior community and the City.

Avoiding Heat Exhaustion

Ask for Help

Well, it's summertime and the weather has warmed up here

in Beaverton. The Senior Citizen's Advisory Committee (SCAC) would like to give our Seniors a few tips on how to avoid getting heatstroke.

Heat Exhaustion, or more com-monly known as heatstroke, is the combination of exposure to high

-take (like water), and overworking or exercising in hot weather. This in turn causes one to perspire and then the loss of water and electro-lytes (salt) leads to dehydration. When your temperature continues to rise from the dehydration it can result in heatstroke.

The elderly are more suscept-

very quickly to the changes in the weather. This makes it easier for them to get heatstroke, especially, if they stay out in hot weather or in a hot, non-air-conditioned living space and are not keeping properly hydrated.

Symptoms of Heatstroke: Feeling tired, confused, nervous, weak, dizzy, nausea, or faint. You may also have muscle cramps, a headache, sweating, vomiting and cold, clammy skin.

Care and Prevention: Get out of the Heat! Stay in cool surround-ings like the shade or air-condi-tioned room. Lie down with your

feet up and rest for awhile. You may also take a cool water bath. Drink lots of cool liquids like wa-ter or an electrolyte drink.

Avoid Alcoholic drinks.Exercise or work during the cooler hours of the day.Drink lots of liquids like water

Eat foods with salt such as salt-ines or pretzels.Try not to get overheated. En-gage in shorter sessions of physical activity.

light colored clothing. Protect your head & neck with a hat or umbrella when you are outdoors.Good health and summer safety

to you all,Your SCAC

As seniors age, many are faced

transitions, such as moving out of a long-time home to a retirement or assisted living residence, or ad-apting to new medical or physical constraints, or perhaps the loss of ability to drive.

There are people and organiz-ations committed to helping aging seniors get good information,

guidance, and assistance in mak--

ant that you, or anyone you know who needs help, take some time to get good information and guidance before taking big steps.

There are many options, so it pays to be careful in choosing a source of advice. Get referrals, consult several, check references, ask a lot of questions, and don’t sign anything or commit to spend-ing any money until you feel com-fortable that the sources you’ve reached understand your needs and are able to help for a fair and reas-onable cost, if any.

One good place to start is the government, such as the City of Beaverton’s Senior Services, the Oregon Department of Human Services or Washington County’s Department of Aging and Veteran Services. Similarly, information is available in most places by call-ing “211” on the phone, or visit-ing on the Internet. Volunteer organizations such as Elders in Action can also serve as

Whoever you start with, and whoever you reach, please take your time and ask a lot of ques-tions to make sure you’ve found a good match for your situation.

Heitzman Body & Paint Celebrates 75 years! By Lisa Thomson

At thirteen years of age, armed with a limited tool supply

and a small shop on east Burnside in Portland, Tom Heitzman began painting and repairing cars. However, what started as a small enterprise soon became quite a large business for young Tom. In 1937, after 9 years of repairing vehicles, the young entrepreneur bought his

booming establishment remained

there for a number of years until he invested in another property in Beaverton, a bold move considering the town was primarily farmland at the time.

Luckily, his daring relocation paid off. Throughout the next

would witness immense changes, but Heitzman Body & Paint would continuously remain a central part of such a promising city.

In 1971, Tom Heitzman died of a heart attack at age 56, and his only child was given control of the company. Thirty seven years

still remains the company CEO. Barbara's daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and Rocky Thomson, also work for the company. Lisa, who

now the President. Her Husband, Rocky, started at Heitzman's in 1974 as a car detailer and is now the company's general manager.

The mission at Heitzman Body & Paint is to assist the customer, by repairing vehicles without hassles and inconvenience. This is done with the highest quality workmanship, parts, materials, customer service, and customer’s satisfaction and respect. They strive to promote a professional, healthy and safe work environment for their employees, and are committed to the community through sponsorships,

scholarships and donations to schools, youth groups and trade associations.

They feel a great responsibility to the environment, are an Eco-

Today, a picture of Tom still

for all to see. His personal ethics, dedication to his customers and employees, strong business sense, and passion for repairing vehicles continue to shine through the business he spent his life creating. At Heitzman's, employees stand by the promise Tom Heitzman envisioned in 1937: quality repairs, inexpensive prices, safe work environment, and superior customer service.

National Night Out, August 7th, 6-8pm

National Night Out (NNO) is the brainchild of The

National Association of Town Watch (NATW) which is a

organization that works in co-operation with thousands of crime watch groups and law en-forcement agencies throughout the country.

National Night Out, “Amer-icas Night Out Against Crime”, was in-troduced by the Association in 1984. In an effort to heighten aware-ness and strengthen participation in local anticrime efforts, the NATW felt that a

type of crime prevention event was needed nationally. The NATW recognized how popular the typical crime watch com-munities were but lamented that only 5 to 7% of the residents were participating actively. A national program was proposed and National Night Out was born.

National Night Out is designed to:

Heighten crime and drug prevention awarenessGenerate support for & participation in, local an-ti-crime programsStrengthen neighborhood spirit & police-community partnershipsSend a message to criminals letting them know that neigh-borhoods are organized and

Last year’s National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighbor-hood organizations and local


munities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, over 37 million people par-ticipated in National Night Out 2011.

National Night Out 2012 will be held on Tuesday August

in August) at City Park at the corner of SW 5th and SW Hall.

Festivities will begin promptly at 6pm

and will run until 8pm. For the second year in a row Radio

Disney will be on hand to provide

entertainment while people munch on pizza

and ice cream and wash it down with assorted bever-

ages. Each year several public and private agencies partner with us by setting up informa-tion stations and providing per-sonnel to answer questions.

Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, cities, towns and neighborhoods celebrate NNO with a variety of events and activities such as:

Block partiesCookoutsVisits from local police and sheriff departmentsParades & ExhibitsFlashlight WalksContestsYouth programsYou and your family have

our personal invitation to attend our festivities on August 7th.

Grow Comfrey in a patch at the bot-tom of your garden. It grows so quick and makes an excellent fertilizer.

1. Cut the large leaves and use them as a nutrient giving mulch to help to keep down weeds.

2. Add them to your compost heap to speed up the reaction time and give you more compost, sooner.

3. Cut the leaves and add them to a bucket of water. Keep brewing until you have a brown smelly liquid (Comfrey tea). Add a cupful to your watering can and each time you water and throw the resulting mush back on to the compost heap.

The other day as I was doing chores and half-listening to

my children, it dawned on me how quickly we accustom ourselves to the idiosyncrasies of our families:

My 3 yr-old was doing mouth-to mouth resuscitation on her swim floaties with periodic counting and side-breathing;

The 7 yr-old was eating maca-roni one noodle at a time (with chopsticks), while contorting her face into ecstatic looks of pleas-ure on the off chance a camera might roll in and begin filming;

And my 10 yr-old, lost in a rev-erie of music and literature, missed slamming into a wall by mere centimeters--only to quickly reverse, spike approach, and slap every door frame she encountered.

To someone peeping through the window, we probably look rather odd; quite honestly, though, these an-tics don’t even cross my radar any-more.

Perhaps our home could stand to look a little more focused, but

when I attempt to have a halfway-serious dinner conversation about goals or the future. When our eldest

the “Fun within Limits” lecture train about dorm life until my 3rd grader dismissed us: “Oh, don’t worry about me; I’m not going to college. Shoot, I’m not even going to mid-dle school!” Well, that’s certainly a relief.

But my preschooler reminded me that sometimes, in this crazy-hectic life, it’s okay to set the goal

a literary character who attempts to

began offering a lengthy list of her

a day). When attempting to compli-ment skills, she stared blankly for a moment and then broke out into a wide grin: “Mama, you are VE-WEE good at sitting on your bottom cheeks!” Why, thank you. Just wish I had more time to practice.

Welcome to our August Beaverton Hero

where we high-light local Res-idents and non-profits that are m a k i n g a dif-fe rence in our commu-nity. I'm especially proud to be able to share the story of Ms. Jennifer Abeyratne. “Ms. Jennifer” is the former owner and teacher at Aloha Mon-tessori Preschool located at Mur-rayhill Christian Church in Mur-rayhill.

A wonderful lady who had devoted more than 30 plus years of teaching preschoolers the Mon-tessori method of education to so many families in the Beaverton area. My personal experience with Ms. Jennifer began 6 years ago when I heard through a friend

down the street from where I live. All 3 of my kids had the opportu-nity to attend Aloha Montessori and have been blessed to have Ms. Jennifer and her teachers, Ms. Kathy and Ms. Erin, be an impor-tant part of their early education.

When Ms. Jennifer decided to retire last year (the same year as Oprah), I referred to her as the “Oprah of Montessori”. She was that good!

Wanting to learn more, I was happy when Ms. Jennifer agreed to share her story as we sat by the pond in Murrayhill.

Ms. Jennifer is originally from Sri Lanka where she was trained in the Montessori method (very popular in India and Europe at that time).

After teaching in the US for 13 years, Ms. Jennifer got the idea to open up her own Montessori pre-school where she could more ef-fectively touch the lives of chil-dren and give them the best early

eduction she could. Aloha Mon-tessori Pre-school was

born in the base-ment of Murray-

hill Christian Church.

T h e love, care and guid-ance Ms. J e n n i f e r gave all the kids

who at-tended has no

doubt left a last-ing memories with

the families who have gone through the doors of

Aloha. After 20 years, MS. Jen-nifer felt that it was time to retire and close the doors to the school. She truly loved what she did and it is that passion, love and dedication for all the kids that went through the school that makes her our Au-gust hero.

It doesn’t take the bank account -

cation of Mother Teresa to make a meaningful contribution. Ms. Jen-nifer has made a difference in the lives of so many families by instill-ing a foundation of love of learning at an early age for these children. I feel extremely blessed that my kids got their start with Ms. Jen-nifer and appreciate the kindness and love she has shown, not only to my family but to all families she touched. Thank you Ms. Jennifer!
