NATURE'S PET MARKET - Karen SottileWhen customers arrive at Nature’s Pet Market in Gresham, they’re greeted by the store’s long-haired ambassador, Grace.

The store cat “is the best thing that ever happened to our store,” says shop owner Karen Sottile. “She’s aggressively friendly, like a therapy cat. We have people who come by just to see her.”

Sottile opened Nature’s Pet about 18 months ago, one of a small, locally owned franchise of pet stores that offer natural foods, ethically produced toys and grooming (both self-service and professional).

“Our store concentrates on dog and cats,” says Sottile, a lifetime pet owner whose former career as a jewelry metalsmith presented ethical quandaries and difficulty finding fair-trade gems.

Opening the shop perfectly combined her love of pets with her belief in natural, safe, local and ethically made products.

“My store is somewhat curated,” she said. “Most of the products that are here are because I think they’re good products, something my customers would want.

“Quality ingredients for food are very, very important – but we have to make sure it’s affordable.”

The store has been very well-received.

“People here in Gresham wanted a place nearby” to buy natural food, toys and coats, she said.

Nature’s Pet Gresham added grooming soon after opening, with self-wash stations as well as professional grooming.

“This has been great here,” she said of Gresham. “We’ve had wonderful customers and we love their pets.”

PRESTIGE CARE HUNTINGTON TERRACE - Gengee RamirezExercise and physical activity are important for everyone, including older adults. No matter your health and physical abilities, you gain a lot by staying active. In fact, in most cases you have more to lose by not being active.

At Prestige Care Huntington Terrace, we have a Wellness Coach who comes two to three times per week, offering her services free to all residents. Exercise is offered mainly in the morning, with an emphasis on fall prevention and strengthening.

Here are just a few of the benefits of physical activity for seniors:

· Can help maintain and improve your physical strength and fitness

· Can help improve your ability to do the everyday things you want to do

· Can help improve your balance

· Can help manage and improve diseases like diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis

· Can help reduce feelings of depression and may improve mood and overall well-being.

You may want to talk with your health care provider if you aren’t used to energetic activity and you want to start a vigorous exercise program or significantly increase your physical activity. Ask how physical activity can help you, whether you should avoid certain activities, and how to modify exercises to fit your situation.

Here at Prestige Care, we adhere to the maxim “If you don’t use it, you lose it.”

Schedule a visit to find out how we can help you or your loved one live a healthier, happier life.

WESTON KIA - Dan SchofieldWith the Portland International Auto Show coming Jan. 26-29 at the Oregon Convention Center, Weston Kia is gearing up to show off what’s new, cool, green and awesome from this year’s Kia lineup.

Denny Joseph, product specialist with Weston, says there’s a lot of excitement about the brand-new Optima Plug-In Hybrid, a four-door available as Hybrid Premium and Hybrid EX.

The Optima Plug-In Hybrid “has a lot of safety features and gets about 50 mpg,” says Joseph. Both are fully parallel hybrid systems with 192 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque.

Meanwhile, the extremely popular Kia Soul makes a power move as the new Turbo Soul in 2017, with a 1.6-liter, turbocharged Inline 4 engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with fuel economy of 26 city/31 hwy/28 combined mpg.

“There’s a totally new design on the Kia Cadenza,” says Joseph, “with elegant European styling.”

Later in 2017, expect a new SUV/crossover called the Kia Niro.

Look for the Smart Trunk, a feature that opens the trunk or tailgate by sensing you are behind it. The key fob in your pocket lets the car know you’re balancing a heavy load and need help!

Kia is coming off a great year, said Joseph. JD Power ranked Kia No. 1 for initial quality and the fewest repairs needed of any manufacturer, stripping Porsche of the prize.

For more information about the Portland International Auto Show or to purchase tickets, visit portlandautoshow.com/.

In the meantime, pop by our showroom to see all the new Kias.
