PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Brian JarvisPACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Stan RobinsonWhen it comes to roof repairs or a full roof replacement, many homeowners aren’t sure what they should expect to pay. Read on to learn about the main factors most contractors consider when estimating a new project’s cost.

Repair or Replace?: If your roof is more than 15 years old, is leaking in multiple places, or has already gone through several repairs, it’s probably time for a replacement. Replacing your roof is a valuable investment that will add value to your home, and newer roofing materials can help you better control your indoor air temperature, saving you on your heating and cooling bills by using reflective ceramic granules. Check with DOE of Oregon or Energy Trust of Oregon for more information.

Style and Health: Your roof’s style and health determine a lot when it comes to price. Whether your roof is flat or flopped, has multiple levels, is hipped or gabled, or is suffering from moisture and/or mold damage will determine the scope and scale of your project.

Type of Material: Asphalt shingles are the most common and least expensive roofing material available. Tile roofing is an option, but its weight, functionality and expense mean it is seldom used in Oregon. Beautiful cedar shingles and shakes are another option, and a long-lasting metal roof is a low maintenance, energy efficient option.

For a free estimate on your repair or replacement project, call (503) 635-8706 or visit www.pacificwestroofing.com. For the answers to more of your roofing questions, visit www.pacificwestroofing.com/blog.

NORTHWEST WOMEN'S CLINIC - Dr. Kelley BurkettThe Zika virus is well-documented by now, thanks in part to the Rio Olympics. But while the Games may be over, the threat from this virus continues to grow. 

While the two types of mosquitoes known to carry Zika are not found in Oregon, they are found in the U.S., and the virus' ability to spread through sexual contact makes the infection a potential problem anywhere, including here in the Pacific Northwest.

Since there is no cure for Zika and its potential effects to the fetus are devastating, prevention is key. Current CDC recommendations are for pregnant women and women trying to get pregnant to avoid travel entirely to areas with Zika outbreaks, including Puerto Rico and parts of Florida. If you must travel, avoid bites by using DEET, covering exposed skin, treating clothes with permethrin, and staying in air conditioned and screened areas. DEET is safe to use while pregnant.

If you are still potentially exposed through mosquitoes or sexual activity, including unprotected sex with an infected partner, recommendations are for women to wait 8 weeks before conceiving. Exposed men with symptoms are advised to use condoms for a full 6 months before conceiving. 

For Oregonians, Zika is a very real threat as a sexually-transmitted infection. Condom use or abstinence greatly decreases the chance of transmission and a test does exist to confirm infection. Should you have any questions or doubts, please see your doctor. Keep updated by checking www.acog.org/zika and www.cdc.gov/zika.

THE PORTLAND CLINIC - Dr. Mary Ellen UlmerFor parents of school kids, the real New Year begins in September, not January. September is when we hit restart, packing away summer’s flip flops and floaty toys and turning, once again, to packing lunches into bags and kids into school buses. So it’s a perfect time to make a few New School-Year’s resolutions. Here are five to help you get your family off to a healthy and happy start.

1. Start the day with breakfast. Just as you can’t drive a car without gas, you can’t run a brain without food. Kids need fuel in the morning. If they’re in a hurry or don’t like to eat in the morning, a piece of fruit and a glass of milk is perfectly reasonable (but skip the chocolate milk — they don’t need the quarter-cup of sugar). Adding some whole-grain toast or oatmeal is even better.

2. Keep going with a healthy lunch. Whether it’s a sack lunch or a school lunch, ideally, it should include a fruit and a vegetable, a whole grain and a protein — but any lunch is better than no lunch. Some whole-grain crackers, a chunk of cheese, an apple and some carrots work in a snap. Have an extra minute? Swap the cheese and crackers for a peanut butter sandwich on whole-grain bread.

3. Stock healthy after-school snacks. If it comes out of a package and you need a chemistry degree to understand the ingredients, leave it at the store. The same goes for sugary snacks and sodas. The best snacks are fresh fruits and veggies and a healthy protein, such as a glass of milk, a piece of cheese, a smear of peanut butter or a quarter cup of almonds or other nuts.

4. Eat dinner together. Everyone’s busy — and that’s exactly why family dinners are so important. No TV. No cell phones. Just you and your kids, connecting and checking in with each other about your day, your friends and your lives. How important is it? Skipping family meals has been linked to depression in teens.

5. Review the rules of cyber safety. Kids: don’t give your full name, address or school to anyone you meet online, and don’t post anything you’d be embarrassed for grandma to read. Parents: friend your kids on all the platforms they use, and know that it’s OK to check their phones from time to time.

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsProtecting your intellectual property, such as your business name, your inventions, or your trade secrets, is crucial to the success of your business. This intellectual property may be as valuable as the business itself and often times may be your business’ most valuable asset. If your business hasn’t protected its intellectual property, here are 5 ways it can do so:

Patents protect products or processes that are unique, useful, and non-obvious. Under the protection of a patent, you can stop third parties from making, using, or selling your invention for a period of years.

Copyrights protect an original work of authorship, such as literature, music, or computer software. Filing for a copyright is voluntary, but doing so will make it easier to seek court enforcement of your copyright.

Having a unique, identifiable name for your product gives your business an advantage over its competitors. A trademark protects the name of your product by preventing other businesses from selling a product under the same name.

When you create a new organization, you reveal your valuable product ideas, marketing plans, and other intellectual property to employees, suppliers, and other business relationships. Non-Disclosure Agreements control the disclosure and use of your business’ intellectual property, ensuring that your trade secrets are maintained.

If you still have steps to take to ensure your intellectual property is protected, be sure to contact The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips today.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association, is the largest annual fundraiser for dementia related education, research, care and support for the people and care givers affected by this devastating disease.

Help us reach the goal of a world without Alzheimer’s: If you don’t know the warning signs of Alzheimer’s besides memory loss, check out this excerpt from one of the most popular articles available through the Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org), “10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer’s”:

--Memory loss that disrupts daily life; forgetting things but remembering later is normal, repeating the same information is a red flag

--Challenges in problem solving or planning

--Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work, or at leisure

--Confusion with time or place

--Trouble understanding spatial relationships and visual images – this is when driving becomes difficult

--New problems with words in speaking and/or writing (i.e. calling a watch a hand clock)

--Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace your steps

--Decreased or poor judgement

--Withdrawal from work or social activities – including lifelong hobbies

--Changes in mood and personality – such as confusion, anxiety, or suspicion

If you notice any of the 10 warning signs in yourself or someone you know, schedule an appointment with your doctor. To continue supporting the fight against Alzheimer’s, register on www.ALZ.org to join team Living Right for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsSmall and mid-sized businesses often find it difficult to determine if they should rent or own commercial property. Purchasing commercial real estate is a complex, often difficult process with a fair amount of risk attached to it. Nevertheless, a commercial property purchase allows you to depreciate the property and reduce your taxable income, as well as giving you greater control over your overhead costs. If you’re ready to own your own commercial real estate, I’ve got a few tips to guide you.

Ask yourself a lot of questions: The biggest question to ask is “Are you ready to make an investment of this size?” If you are ready, you’ll need to grapple with issues relating to what kind of location you need, how much work you’re willing to put into the property, and how much risk you can tolerate.

Evaluate the property: You should visit many different properties to figure out which properties you fit with. Your situation and needs are unique, and not every building will fit them. Location, physical condition, allowable uses, adequacy of access, and the opportunity for expansion or leasing should all be considered.

Conduct a feasibility study: Feasibility studies are a great way to stress test potential properties. Study your business’ market, the market(s) of your potential properties, and your own finances to determine how viable your options are, and how much margin for error you have.

Call the Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips: The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips can advise and assist you every step of the way.
