CANBY FORD - Great deals can be yours at Canby Ford!Anyone who’s purchased a car knows just how arduous and confusing the process can be. The car market is vast and intimidating, and that doesn’t even begin to factor in those sellers who are more than happy to cut an unfair deal.

At Canby Ford, we want your car-buying experience to be as painless as possible. Whether you’re still on the hunt or you think you’ve already found the perfect car, here are 5 questions to ask during your search:

1.) How is it equipped?—Even if features such as cruise control or a sunroof are featured in a car’s ad listing, it’s good to double-check and confirm everything is in working order.

2.) Has the car been damaged?—If it’s a new car, it may have suffered damage during shipping, and if it’s used, you’ll want to find out its accident and repair record. Get any service records you can for the vehicle.

3.) How many previous owners?—Any vehicle that has had more than two owners is less than desirable; more owners can indicate reoccurring vehicle issues.

4.) Can I take a test drive?—Get inside and check how the seats feel, whether there is ample room, how the vehicle handles at low and high speeds, etc.

5.) Would I be happy with this car?—Ask yourself if you can really imagine yourself in a vehicle like this. If you can, you may have found your next car.

MCLARENS CARPET ONE - Steve McLarenFirst thing to remember when getting ready for the holiday season: It’s about the spirit of the season and sharing it with family and friends. Decorating your home should add to the fun and spirit of the season; it should be something to look forward to and enjoy.

If the motivation is right, here are a few simple things to inspire your creativity:

  • As an alternative to garland, use standalone evergreens throughout your home to bring in the rich wintery green tones.
  • Hang matching wreathes in your windows to share the holiday spirit with those passing by.
  • Greet friends and family with a festive entryway decorated with simple items like garland, potted poinsettias, decorative holiday mat and cheerfully wrapped gift boxes.
  • Even a simple everyday meal can be dressed up with a few holiday-inspired elements like green ivy, pine cones or a crystal vase filled with candy canes or shiny ornaments.
  • Carry your decorating theme throughout home. Add red and green guest towels to the bathroom; holiday coffee mugs and dinner ware for festive meals; small Christmas trees in the bedrooms; seasonally inspired throw pillows for the sofa and the bedroom.
  • Keep your home smelling terrific by using potpourri, candles and nightlights with scents of the season.
  • Most important, relax and enjoy the holiday season with friends and family.
  • After the holiday season, visit us at McLarens Carpet One. We’ll show you how to freshen up your home with new flooring, counter tops and window coverings in the spring.

    GUSTAFSON INSURANCE - Tim GustafsonHave you ever had an important phone call or text message come through while you were behind the wheel? It's a common situation that many drivers face, and it can too easily result in dangerous distracted driving. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least eight people are killed and 1,161 are injured in crashes involving distracted drivers each day.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration classifies driving distractions in three ways: visual (taking your eyes off the road), manual (taking your hands off the wheel), and cognitive (taking your mind off the act of driving). To stay safe, set some guidelines for yourself and other drivers in your family:

    Eat snacks and meals before you start driving.

    Never apply makeup, finish dressing or attempt grooming while driving.

    Avoid electronic distractions by mapping routes before you begin driving and disabling text and email push notifications on your phone.

    Use Bluetooth or other hands-free devices in an emergency.

    If you need to address a distraction, wait until you can pull over to a safe spot.

    Distracted Driving Laws

    Many states now have laws and regulations surrounding common driving distractions. As of September 2016, 14 states, the District of Columbia and three U.S. territories have banned the use of handheld cellphones by those who are behind the wheel, and 46 states as well as the District of Columbia have outlawed text messaging while driving.

    CANBY TELCOM/DIRECTLINK - Debbie JewellOn November 1, 2016. Canby Telephone Association (dba Canby Telcom) and Mt Angel Telephone are becoming one and will assume a new name, DirectLink. Still the same excellent team of people serving you, still the same cooperative owned by you - our members, just with a new assumed business name and brand identity.

    Canby Telephone Association was formed over a century ago by Canby citizens to provide telephone service to an 84 square mile area of the city and rural homes and businesses. We are still committed to doing just that and more. Over time we have grown to so much more than a telephone company. We have expanded our footprint into Mt Angel, expanded our service offerings to include Internet, digital television and hosted IP voice systems for our local businesses and we developed a first in the US product, EZVideo, which is now being resold by other local independent and cooperative telephone companies in the Portland area.

    It is for these reasons along with the desire to gain efficiencies and continue a company culture of passion and innovation for the industry we work in, that we chose a name that represents our view of the future - providing our members a Link to the World. The name DirectLink, our tag line "we're here for you" and our new logo represent how we want to be viewed in the future. A company that is forward thinking, committed to our communities and one that provides the absolute best member service and support.

    We are very excited about our new name, brand and mission! With DirectLink you can continue to expect amazing people with strong local values. We’re your cooperative, your neighbors and your connection to the world.

    CLUB FIT - FROM LEFT: Ron and Barb RainesSitting is the new smoking. It seems like every day another study comes out announcing another ill-effect from prolonged periods of sitting: Sitting slows your metabolic rate, makes it harder to lose weight, and deteriorates your muscles. Luckily, working a desk job doesn’t have to mean spending your time sedentary. Here are 5 exercises to get you moving at work and reduce your sedentary time:

    1.) Shoulder Blade Squeezes—Squeeze your shoulder blades together for 10 seconds, release, and repeat to help improve your posture.

    2.) Coffee-Break Kickback—Balancing on 1 leg, lift your opposite leg straight back; Keep the lifted leg straight, and really try to focus on squeezing your glute and hip muscles on that side. Do 2 sets of 10 reps for each leg.

    3.) Desk Push-Up—Using your desk or a counter, place your hands shoulder-width apart, stick your legs out behind you, and perform ten pushups.

    4.) Squat and Sit—Whenever you return to your desk chair, perform 5 squats before sitting down. Put your feet shoulder width apart 6” in front of your chair, squat until your rear lightly touches your chair, and drive up through your heels to perform one rep.

    5.) Walking—Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. Consider holding walking meetings; take the time to walk to a coworker’s desk instead of sending that email; head up the stairs instead of the elevator for your next meeting. Above all else, find ways to get moving!

    CANBY CLINIC - Dr. Kris RitcheyDoctors have known for over a hundred years that Vitamin D is important for building strong bones. But new research shows Vit D also supports your immune system, brain function, cardiovascular health, and has anti-cancer effects. In fact, it is now being used to prevent and treat many serious health problems: asthma, depression, allergies, multiple sclerosis, menstrual cramps, migraine’s, Crohn’s, high blood pressure, diabetes…. and the list goes on. Vitamin D like any other nutrient is not a miracle cure. It’s simply a nutrient most of us need to optimize our health and boost our immune system.

    Your body is designed to make Vit D when your skin is exposed to adequate amounts of sunlight. Certainly a challenge in the Pacific Northwest. Getting the proper dose through supplementation is a hot topic. Turns out the recommended daily intake (RDI) guidelines have proved to be too low.

    Last January, the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee and the FDA stated that 98% of Americans are Vit D deficient and classified it as a nutrient of concern. We’re awaiting new RDIs from the Institute of Medicine. In the meantime, monitoring your Vit D blood levels is the best guide we have.

    You can have your blood levels tested at Canby Clinic to see if you are deficient or in the danger zone. To set up an appointment, call (503) 266-7443 or visit us at 452 NW 1st Avenue in Canby.

    NEAL FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Alan NealWith Halloween almost here, nearly 41 million trick-or-treaters in the United States will soon be in candy heaven, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. All that candy can be a Halloween nightmare for parents, but why not use it to your advantage? Halloween is a great time to establish good oral and physical health habits for years to come with your children. Here are 3 important lessons to learn from Halloween candy:

    1.) What you eat relates to oral health, not just physical health—When your children get home from trick-or-treating, it’s a good idea to go through their bags with them and sort out their candy together. Let them know that hard candies like jawbreakers and caramels and other sweets that stay in your mouth for a long time can erode tooth enamel and lead to cavities; encourage them to enjoy healthier treats instead.

    I think Halloween is a good time to reflect on nutritional and oral health. Americans consume over 150 lbs. of processed sugar per year. We are #2 in the world, the only country that has us beat is France--and most of their sugar consumption is in the form of chocolate. And their life expectancy is longer than ours; the French rank #9 and the US is #36 (Wikipedia).

    2.) Enjoy sweets in moderation—Eating candy should not be an all-day feast (although it would certainly be a delicious one). Sweets should be enjoyed in moderation, and Halloween is the perfect opportunity to teach your kids this key lesson. Create a “treat time” for eating Halloween candy each day; your kids will start thinking more healthily about treats, and their candy stash will last a lot longer this way (you know they’ll love that).

    3.) It’s time to brush up on your brushing habits—Brushing and flossing after treat time is crucial to your children’s teeth, so keep the treats coming with a new Halloween-themed toothbrush and new floss to help reinforce proper dental care habits. New brushes will keep brushing and flossing fun and help your kids develop good dental hygiene habits that can last a lifetime.

    I have great fun on Halloween: At my house we offer one bowl with candy and then we offer a toothbrush and toothpaste. Believe it or not, 9 out of 10 kids are super excited about the toothbrushes. I think Halloween is a good time to reinforce you can eat sugary candy in moderation but then practice oral hygiene afterward to negate the effects of sugar and cavities.

    While these Halloween “tricks” are a great place to start, you should work with your kids so that they continue to follow these recommendations throughout the year. Good oral health habits are a huge factor in your overall health, so take this opportunity to ensure your kids live a long and healthy life.

    CANBY TELCOM - Derrick MotternThe newly formed summer science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) program for 3rd and 4th graders led by Eccles Elementary teacher, Adam Gingerich, is vital to our community. STEAM was created to not only show young students computer assembly skills but also to teach them what the technology is used for and how they can potentially impact the world. Allowing youngsters to learn through hands on technical training ensures that we have bright, passionate minds in the future that can apply these skills to just about any industry.

    As part of the curriculum STEAM students visited the Canby Telcom facilities. This trip allowed the kids to understand the equipment and dedication it takes to deliver next generation high-speed Internet, Video and Voice to our Members. We were able to show them how computers, networking and programming are applied and used in every facet of our daily lives to deliver these services and they were able to get some insight as to what may be coming next.

    CANBY TELCOM - STEAM offers kids hands-on technical training

    Our goal at Canby Telcom is to provide industry leading technology for our members and community. We are honored that we were able to sponsor and host such an amazing group of kids. We are passionate about investing in upcoming generations who possess the same hunger we have towards innovative thinking and state of the art, industry leading technology. Our hope is that some will continue down this path and may someday become a part of the Canby Telcom family.

    MCLARENS CARPET ONE - Steve McLarenWow! It’s almost October. Not that long until the festive holiday season.

    It does sneak up on us. Before you start thinking about the holiday decorations you’ll be putting up, step back and look around.

    Do your rooms need some help before you put up those decorations?

  • Floors looking a bit tired and worn? Could your entry floor use some updating? How about the family room that gets so much use when friends and family gather?
  • What about the windows? When was the last time you updated the window treatments? Are your current window treatments energy efficient to help save on heating and cooling bills?
  • What about your countertops – tired of that old laminate countertop and boring backsplash?
  • You’ve got time to make some changes.

    Since last time you got new flooring, new flooring products have been developed that are perfect for an active family. INNOVIA EXTREME CLEAN carpet, made from natural-based fiber has total clean protection. Beverages, spills, even pet accidents clean up faster and more thoroughly. It will stand up to everything from little feet to big wheels, for years – and it’s on sale right now.

    Timing is perfect for looking into getting new Hunter Douglas energy efficient Duette® Honeycomb Shades. There are rebates going on right now from Hunter Douglas along with a federal tax rebate.

    You’ve got time to spruce up your home before holiday decorations go up. See the professional staff at McLarens Carpet One. They can guide you to the right products for your family and home.

    CANBY FORD - Great deals can be yours at Canby Ford!At first glance, the 2017 Ford Fusion looks incredibly similar to the 2016 model. Peak inside, however, and you’ll see Ford has made big improvements to the Fusion’s interior and safety features.

    Inside the 2017 Fusion, a new rotary gear selector replaces the conventional handle shifter, creating a more open and inviting center console. Ford’s updated multimedia system, Sync 3, is now available on every trim but the base S model. Featuring improved usability and responsiveness in addition to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, Sync 3 allows you to seamlessly integrate your new Fusion into the rest of your life.

    When it comes to safety, the 2017 Fusion received the highest ratings possible in all of the IIHS’ categories. Perpendicular and park-out assist have been added to the optional park assist feature, which can already parallel park for drivers. The forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking has been redesigned to detect pedestrians at low speeds, and lane departure and lane-keeping assist features are also available, making this the safest Fusion Ford has ever built.

    Under the hood, the 2.5L I-4 remains the base engine, but most owners will select from 3 EcoBoost (1.5L, 2.0L, and 2.7L) and 2 hybrid (2.0L, 2.0L Plug-In) engines. The only new engine option is the 2.7L V6 EcoBoost, available exclusively on the Sport model. With more power than anything else in its class, the Fusion Sport is a performance sedan in a midsize sedan’s body.
