JOY OF LIFE CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Laura LaJoieDr. Laura La Joie, owner of Joy of Life Chiropractic clinic, overheard a set of parents telling their kids that they were going kite surfing. Then they asked the kids, “What are you guys doing?”

Most likely, spending time indoors, La Joie mused.

She noted that kids are sitting more than they did 20 years ago.

“How many kids these days ride a bike to their friends, skate, or walk places?”

Additionally, in the summer, parents reward their kids with free time, and for many of those kids, their choice is to be inside.

On the computer, playing X-box, watching Netflix.

While she understands the digital draw, she encourages families to be intentional with their extra time.

“Summer is the opportunity to get kids off their chairs and move to improve their balance and the function of their body,” she said.

A key focus of Joy of Life Chiropractic is family wellness.

And, while many kids do have too much screen time, they are also at various sports camps in the summer.

“Young athletes are calling on their bodies to do a lot of different activities.”

She says it’s important for kids to have a chiropractic performance evaluation and risk assessment. Through this, she is able to identify issues before they become a problem.

La Joie noted that her practice is for all ages.

“I see kids from four days old to 98 days old.”

WILSONVILLE VETERINARY CLINIC - Dr. Kristen HardingeBuying a new puppy is a major endeavor. Choosing a breeder is a very important decision and there are numerous things that you can do as the new pet owner to ensure that you’re choosing an ethical breeder. This increases the chances that you will purchase a healthy puppy.

First, ensure that the breeder performs all the requisite health testing recommended for your breed. Each breed has different health conditions that affect it, some of which can be tested for.

The breeder should encourage you to come visit their kennel, to see the dogs’ temperament and the environment in which the puppies are raised. The breeder should engage in active socialization practices starting at birth and continuing through weaning.

The breeder should spend a great deal of time interviewing you. This often includes completing a questionnaire, in order to try to match each puppy with the best owner, based on its temperament and the activity level that the puppy will have.

Breeders should do temperament testing, have health exams, deworm and vaccinate the puppies before they go to their new homes. Breeders should also make themselves available to the new owners for the life of the pet—to answer questions, assist with problems and ensure that if the puppy or adult dog needs to be surrendered for any reason, that it will go to an appropriate home and not end up in a shelter.

THE HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Lisa WillettIf you’re buying a house, you probably need a loan. And if you want a loan, you’re going to need a trustworthy credit score. Read on to learn about five credit errors that can put your dream home permanently out of reach.

Making late payments. It’s not exactly shocking to learn that lenders expect to be repaid on time. But regardless of your overall financial situation, late payments can lower your credit score by up to 30 percent.

Applying for another loan. If you’re good enough for one loan, a second should be no problem, right? Wrong. Creditors see more loans as a sign that you may default soon. If you’re already buying a home, take a pass on that new car.

Maxing out credit cards. Another classic sign of an irresponsible borrower, many banks may penalize you for making the minimum payment on your credit card bills, no matter how timely you are.

Disputing credit report items. It’s usually a good idea to correct errors on your credit report, as it may raise your score. But it’s crucial that you do so before applying for a loan, otherwise, the banks may think you’re gaming the system.

Having no credit history. Shakespeare advised “neither a borrower nor a lender be,” but unfortunately most lenders demand a reputable credit history. Paying for groceries and gas with a credit card is a good way to build up a bona fide history.

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. Todd WilsonIf you want to play like the pros, you need to wear the same specialized equipment that keeps professional athletes safe and performing at their peak.

But here’s a hint—I’m not talking about their shoes or jerseys. I’m talking about mouthguards.

That’s why Wilson Orthodontics has provided free custom mouthguards to student athletes for the past 14 years. This year, we’ll distribute roughly 500 protectors to football and lacrosse athletes in Sherwood, Newberg and the surrounding communities.

But mouthguards are important for athletes in every sport. So here’s a breakdown that will help you choose the best option.

Ready Made. A ready made (or “stock”) mouthguard is fine, especially if practice is in 20 minutes. But they’re the least safe, least effective and least preferred option. In your mouth, one size really doesn’t fit all.

Mouth Formed. “Boil and bite” mouthguards are probably the most common out there. When heated in boiling water, they become pliable, allowing you to bite down and mold them. Unfortunately, the process isn’t perfect, and these still tend to shift during play.

Custom Made. Hands down, this is the best option. At Wilson Orthodontics, we can make a custom molded mouthguard, and can tailor your mouthguard to your dental history and chosen sport. These are the safest option, and it’s what the pros use too.

CANBY FORD - There's always something new at Canby Ford. Stop by today!The Ford Mustang is America’s original pony car, and consumers have long admired the iconic muscle machine for its dynamic styling, elegant chassis and powerful engine options.

None of that has changed—but the 2016 Ford Mustang now comes with more standard features, bold color options and a range of hands-free technologies.

One big change is the return of hood vent-integrated secondary turn signals. Fans are calling it a throwback from Mustang’s history, and this heritage feature now comes standard for buyers of the 2016 Mustang GT.

Ford also unveiled a few new color schemes, including over-the-top racing stripes and jet black roof paneling.

When it comes to the engine, the 3.7-liter V6, 2.3-liter EcoBoost and 5-liter V8 all provide the force and fire necessary to conquer the open road. That being said, keeping up with technological change has become (almost) as important as what’s under the hood, and Ford aficionados have plenty to look forward to on that front.

Engineers have been touting SYNC 3’s voice recognition system, as well as the smartphone-like touchscreen and graphic interface.

It’s also worth noting that the Mustang is one of Ford’s safest cars ever, earning five-star ratings for frontal, side and rollover collisions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Mustang a five-star crash test rating overall.

The 2016 Ford Mustang is available now at Canby Ford. Stop by today to learn more.

JOY OF LIFE CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Laura LaJoieStudent athletic programs are changing. The multi-sport student athlete—once a common sight on primary and secondary schoolyards—is being replaced by single-sport adolescent athletes.

More kids are specializing in one sport at an earlier age, and with longer seasons.

Though their dedication and hard work are to be applauded, these kids are putting themselves at increased risk for repetitive strain, fractures and other debilitating injuries, according to Wilsonville chiropractor Dr. Laura LaJoie.

The owner of Joy of Life Chiropractic says the shift from multi- to single-sport athletics reduces the amount of variety in students’ exercises and training programs. It also creates less balanced physical development.

A multi-sport athlete may run track and play basketball, soccer or tennis. In contrast, the disciplined single-sport athlete performs the same actions over and over, honing their skills but also increasing their risk.

To keep your child healthy, Dr. LaJoie recommends scheduling an immediate biomechanical evaluation to check for potential imbalances, trouble spots—and develop solutions.

“Summer is the perfect time to come in and learn about our personalized strength and conditioning programs,” says Dr. LaJoie. “We can help your athlete maintain their strength and flexibility, recover from a previous injury and minimize their risk for future injuries.”

Joy of Life Chiropractic is dedicated to providing optimal health to everyone, regardless of age or stage. So be healthy by choice, not by chance, and schedule a visit at Joy of Life Chiropractic today.

THE HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Lisa WillettThe home inspection is a crucial part of the house-buying process, but how you react to what’s uncovered can mean the difference between big savings, and a big headache. Use these bargaining table tips to ensure you get the best deal.

Tour problem spots. Any home inspection agent will offer to provide a written or verbal summary of their findings, but if at all possible, ask to be shown the problems in person. Seeing things firsthand will give you a better sense of how serious these trouble areas really are, and improve your bargaining position.

Ask for credit. Once your home inspector has identified potential trouble spots, approach the seller and ask them to deduct the estimated price of these repairs from their asking price. You can put these savings toward the repair costs—or use them for something more pressing.

Try for closing costs. Some sellers can be hesitant to cover the cost of repairs, but may relent to paying your closing costs. The fees charged by the lender, title company, land surveyor and local government often cost just as much as the necessary repairs.

Loose lips sink savings. If the seller knows you plan to completely renovate a problem area, they’re far less likely to offer a repair credit or pay for the needed construction themselves. Keep your poker face on, and never discuss your renovation plans within earshot of the seller or their agent.

WILSONVILLE VETERINARY CLINIC - Dr. Kristen HardingeFleas, ticks and mites are dreaded in pet-friendly households, and with good reason.

Not only can these bloodsuckers cause itching and skin problems in the short term, they can also transmit more serious diseases. Rashes and inflammation (as well as the associated scratching) increase your pet’s risk of developing a secondary bacterial infection.

Identifying and preventing fleas, ticks and mites is the key to effective parasite control. Persistent itching, and signs of skin infection (ranging from redness and raised irritation to open sores and bleeding) may indicate the presence of external parasites.

You can treat pet parasites through a number of products, including orally-administered medication, topically-applied products and flea collars. It should be noted that not every product is equally effective, and using the wrong product can be extremely harmful, even fatal, to your pet.

If you aren’t sure what parasite your pet has, or what the most effective treatment option is, consult your local veterinarian for options.

Remember that parasites can travel from pet to pet and to people within your household; if you discover an infection in one animal, it’s best to treat the whole “herd” as potential hosts. Parasite larvae can survive in the atmosphere, in your carpet—even in your pet’s bed; treating the pet’s environment is key to preventing reinfection.

WILSON ORTHODONTICS - Dr. Todd WilsonHave you heard about the latest DIY (do it yourself) trend? It’s dangerous, foolhardy—and completely legal.

It’s hard to believe, but according to this consumer alert put out by the American Association of Orthodontists, some people are starting to use DIY methods to self treat their crooked or gap teeth.

A quick search online pulls up hundreds of references to these so-called “quick fix” projects. Some of these solutions use things like rubber bands or dental floss, but the most outrageous involve constructing faux braces out of paper clips, or a retainer out of modeling clay.

Folks, this is crazy. You can cause extensive (and very expensive) damage to your teeth, bone and soft tissue by messing around with dental experiments.

Why? Well, for starters, orthodontists don’t just align your teeth based on aesthetics. In fact, the functionality and long-term health of your teeth is our primary concern; style always comes second. Trying to self treat misaligned teeth could very easily result in loss of the supporting tooth root, gum recession or, in the worst case, loss of teeth altogether.

Moreover, orthodontists are uniquely qualified specialists with over 10 years of rigorous education. We’re professional, reliable and safe.

So take it from me: don’t experiment on your teeth. You get what you pay for, and without the help of a dental professional, you could be causing your teeth serious (if not irreparable) harm.

CANBY FORD - Buy American! Support Canby Ford.After a two-year hiatus, the Ford F-150 Raptor is back—with enhanced capabilities and all-new technology that make the 2017 Raptor even more of an off-road powerhouse than ever before.

It only takes a minute inside the cab to understand why the F-150 Raptor is considered to have the “DNA of a Baja race truck” by weekend racers and professional drivers alike.

The Raptor is powered by Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine technology, which produces more thrust than the older 6.2-liter V8 engine. A 10-speed transmission ensures optimal efficiency when shifting.

A new transfer case manages power distribution between the front and back wheels, ensuring force on demand for the Raptor’s four-wheel drive. The 2017 Raptor also comes with a brand new Terrain Management System, allowing the driver to optimize engine output depending on driving conditions.

Military-strength steel and high-grade aluminium-alloy body construction allowed Ford’s engineers to shave an amazing 500 pounds off previous iterations of the Raptor. In fact, the leaner frame and increased engine capacity give the Raptor its best weight-to-power ratio ever.

The 2017 Raptor is available as both a SuperCrew and SuperCab truck. The four-door SuperCrew comes with an expanded 145-inch wheelbase, providing more legroom for passengers and storage space for gear.

The 2017 Raptor will be built at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan. Sales to the public are slated to begin this fall.

THE HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Lisa WillettThe home buying market is heating up—and fast. Chances are, your new dream home is someone else’s too. Here are five ways to distinguish your offer from the rest.

Be pre-approved. Being pre-approved is stronger than being pre-qualified. It demonstrates to the seller that you have the ability to turn your loan into a “virtual” cash offer.

Strengthen your offer. The easier the process is for the seller, the better your chances are of being accepted. You can strengthen your position by offering more than the asking price, increasing the amount of earnest money or adapting closing dates that accommodate the seller.

Address inspections and contingencies differently. Instead of waiting 15 days for a home inspection, try decreasing that time to show you are eager to move through the process. Agreeing to absorb any difference between the sale and appraisal price can also calm a nervous seller.

Consider an escalation clause. In the case of multiple offers, an escalation clause is designed to edge out competing bids by automatically raising your offer when another bid comes in. This also eliminates the risk of unnecessarily paying too much.

Write a letter. Try to make a personal connection with the seller. Let them know how special their home is to you and relate the importance of becoming the next owner. Sellers love to know who will inhabit the space they’ve called home.
