Brought to you by Griffin Hampson - Cartridge-Network - PRINTER, INK & TONER INSIDER -


CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonAny inkjet printer with four or more “tank” ink cartridges has a separate printhead. Cartridges lock into the printer’s carriage feeding ink to the printhead.

This differs from the two-cartridge system; a black and a tri-color cartridge, where the printhead is a physical component of each cartridge.

Guess what? Tank-style printheads clog up. Lots of use, little use or general use. They clog up.

So, all Brother, Epson, Canon and HP printers with four or more cartridges have a printhead which needs to be cleaned periodically.

At Cartridge Network’s store we ask customers purchasing tank-style cartridges if they clean their printer’s printheads. Maybe 15 percent say they do. Ten percent know about it but don’t and 75 percent look at us as if we’re nuts.

We go over a handout with short instructions for each type of printer and give it to them. Come in or call us for a copy.

One can clean the printhead directly from the printer or from one’s computer. A test page is the first step indicating if all the nozzles are printing correctly or clogged. If clogged, do a “deep clean.” If they are severely clogged, you may have to repeat the process many times.

If they become too clogged you will be looking for a new printer. Really? We recycle several printers daily which are old or have clogged printheads. We probably have a good new printer waiting for you.

Why do we go to these lengths explaining printhead clearing? Because so many people come in with print quality samples or their actual printers. Most are astonished by the process. So easy. Once they’re aware and clean periodically, everyone’s life is easier.

Yes, you will use a little ink, but doing so sure beats having a poor print when you are actually trying to print something.

As a full-service independent, non-franchise operation located in Raleigh Hills, on the Portland – Beaverton border, Cartridge Network sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock several dozen different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs.” We stock several thousand different cartridges. Shipping is free.

NIELSEN'S JEWELERS - Jan NielsenTraditional views of pearls are shifting, and with good reason. New shapes, colors and affordable prices mean that the pearls at Nielsen’s Jewelers can fit anyone’s style.

Much like amber, coral and ivory, pearl is a naturally occurring organic gem. Unlike mineral gems, pearls require no cutting or polishing to uncover their brilliance. Pearls are produced by mollusks (such as oysters, clams or mussels) and are actually meant as a defense mechanism. Today, most pearls are cultivated on pearl farms.

At Nielsen’s, we hand pick our pearls for luster, natural brilliance and three-dimensional glow. Any pearl that appears too chalky or dull indicates low quality.

Pearls will always be a great complement to “girly” attire, but their versatility makes them appropriate in almost any setting. We tell our customers all the time, “forget the country club stigma and find your own pearl look.”

For the Bohemian look, try layering your pearls with other materials, like a silver or gold chain—or stack them with our Leather Story wrap bracelets. For a more whimsical style, try a strand of Nielsen’s unique square or petal pearls, available in natural hues of purple, pink, orange and gold. For a chic look, try our long strand of black Tahitian pearls mixed with sparkling black spinel.

Pearls can take you from the boardroom meeting to the downtown nightclub, and everywhere inbetween. Stop by Nielsen’s for a look at our incredible collection today!

THE PORTLAND CLINIC - Laura Bitts, M.D.After two decades of increasing use of OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin and other opioid pain medicines in the United States, new studies are finding that these drugs are associated with far more harm than previously understood. In Oregon, the majority of drug-overdose deaths are now linked to prescription opioids.

Short-term use of opioids can be helpful for acute pain, but the research to date has found no good evidence that opioids improve pain or function when used long term. In addition to these risks of addiction and overdose, opioids can have far-reaching effects on your body and brain. They may cause or worsen depression, sleep problems, cardiovascular disease and low testosterone. They may reduce your ability to function socially or at work. And for many people, they actually increase sensitivity to pain.

Some people—particularly those with a history of depression, trauma or addiction to alcohol or other substances—are at especially high risk. One study found that 47 percent of people on opioids for 30 days will still be on them three years later. Addiction is a serious health issue, not a personal failing, that can and should be treated.

Your doctor can help you explore the approaches that might work best for you depending on your individual pain issues. Three that work very well for many people are non-opioid pain medications, physical therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. It’s well worth a conversation with your doctor.

PARR LUMBER - Marshall SmithWith weather warming up and summer just around the corner, it’s time to start planning to repair, stain or build a new fence. Fences provide security, safety and curb appeal. There are many options for fences and accessories and your local Parr Lumber store has the products, displays, expertise and resources to make this project a summer breeze.

Parr Lumber’s western red cedar fencing is beautiful, affordable and easy to install. Cedar boards are available in multiple styles like square top or the attractive notched “dog-ear” fencing and also come in multiple sizes and several quality grades. Cedar is sustainably harvested and requires very little maintenance. Although not required, most people choose to stain their wood fences with a high-quality stain like the Superdeck or Penofin brand. Protecting your fence with a high-quality wood stain will increase the life of your fence and maintain the look.

Although wood is the most common, there are other options for a fence depending on your specific need. Decorative iron fences by Fortress or chain link barriers are also very common when superior strength and security are the main objective.

Building or replacing a fence at your home will increase the value of the home and provide instant privacy. Come see an expert at Parr Lumber today, they will help you make your new fence project easy and something you will be proud to show the neighbors.

ADVANCED ENERGY SERVICES - Julia and Mike WernerWhat if you could change the look and feel of your home, save a ton of money on your heating and cooling bills and, best of all, get the government to subsidize the cost? It may sound like a fantasy—but it’s really true!

It works like this. Over the past few years, window manufacturers have developed new quadruple-coated Low-E glass (the “e” stands for emissivity). In essence, Low-E glass reflects thermal energy, allowing visible light in while keeping heat out, all thanks to a special veneer.

Now the Energy Trust of Oregon was already paying consumers about $1.75 per square foot of glass to install energy-efficient windows in their homes and businesses. But these new windows are even more efficient, bumping up your rebate to $4 per square foot. In the typical home, this can amount to $1,000 to $1,200 in reduced costs! When you factor in the savings over time on your utilities, installation literally pays for itself.

But before you rush off to go hire a contractor, remember that who installs your windows matters just as much as the make and manufacturer. I’ve had my contractor’s license since 1977, and I’ve overseen more than 20,000 installations throughout my career. At Advanced Energy Services, we provide our customers with professionally trained window experts that ensure the highest level of quality, knowledge and professionalism.

So why wait? Schedule your free in-home consultation with Advanced Energy Services today!

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsAn experienced business attorney is crucial for creating a strong foundation for your business partnership. Without a written partnership agreement, your business will lack a clear outline of what roles, obligations and rewards are due to each partner.

Here are five things you can do to protect yourself when forming a business partnership.

Put everything in writing. When it comes to revenue sharing, intellectual property rights and start-up cost repayment, don’t assume a “handshake” deal will be honored years or even decades later. Use a trusted business attorney to create a legally-binding partnership agreement.

Have a long-term plan. Disagreeing on (or not even discussing) the long-term goals of your business partnership is practically failure by design. Having a comprehensive growth strategy helps you prepare for the future—and anticipate future headaches.

Consider a limited partnership. In a traditional partnership agreement, both partners assume liability (read: responsibility) for the actions of the other. A limited partnership narrows your liability to your own actions.

Make it uneven. Every business needs a boss, including business partnerships. A 60-40 or even 70-30 ownership split ensures that deadlocks will be broken and final decisions made.

Create an exit strategy. In the case of a break up, your partnership agreement should stipulate procedures for buying out a partner, splitting company property and sharing closing expenses.

For more information on drafting partnership agreements, contact The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips today!

KUHNHAUSEN'S FURNITURE SHOWCASE - Neal KuhnhausenBiltwell Furniture’s retro-modern furnishings are some of our most popular offerings—take just one glance and you can see why!

For example, the “Bruno” couch (pictured) is defined by its sharp clean lines, which give the piece an angular, modish look without appearing overly austere or formal. The slate fabric hints at rustic authenticity without appearing quaint or hokey.

In fact, that’s one of the things I love about Biltwell: their furniture has an almost timeless charm and wouldn’t seem out of place anywhere. I can imagine the “Bruno” as a set piece for a period drama, but it would be equally appropriate in the hip waiting area of a downtown loft office space.

KUHNHAUSEN'S FURNITURE SHOWCASE - Wow! What a couch!This versatility—some just call it style—makes the “Bruno” a true customer favorite, and that’s one of the reasons I chose to spotlight the piece in the first place.

It only helps that Biltwell is itself a fantastic Portland company. All of their furniture is produced right here in PDX; the foam stuffing is also produced by another local company and their wood frames are sustainably harvested in the Pacific Northwest too.

So shop local, and support two authentically Portland businesses for the price of one! See you soon!

LIVING RIGHT SENIOR PLACEMENT - Jennifer Cook-BumanSenior living placement agent Jennifer Cook-Buman will give an informational talk on the different retirement options available to seniors Tuesday, June 21 in Oregon City.

The event will take place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Pioneer Community Center, which is located at 615 5th Street.

As owner and founder of Living Right Senior Placement, Cook-Buman will join a panel of experts to discuss the differences between independent retirement living, assisted living, adult care foster homes and memory care communities.

The placement professional says that seniors should be honest about their needs before starting the search for their new home.

Independent living centers, for instance, offer no medical help or assistance with the tasks of daily living (grooming, bathing, etc.) but can be perfect for seniors looking for a greater sense of community and more time for communal outings and hobbies.

Adult foster homes, on the other hand, provide a smaller, intimate community, but are usually staffed by only one caregiver (limiting access to care when the staffer is with another resident or sleeping).

Assisted living communities bridge the gap between independent and memory care centers, and generally offer a spectrum of care. Memory care centers are designed specifically for those suffering from dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment.

A placement professional like Jennifer Cook-Buman can help you order your priorities and find the place that’s right for you. Call today!

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Stan RobinsonPACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Brian JarvisPacific West Roofing has over 35 years’ experience with quality craftsmanship done right. We offer these tips to help keep consumers safe.

Bait and switch contractors promise to use high-quality roofing materials, then surreptitiously substitute lower-quality (and cheaper) supplies. Another variant involves inexplicable shortages of low or medium-grade goods, forcing the customer to purchase the most expensive option.

The defense: Stipulate exactly what products will be used, and that if such products become “unavailable,” the contractor will provide replacement materials of comparable quality at no extra charge.

Cutting corners can lead to significant cost savings, but not for the consumer. In roofing, using fewer shingles and fasteners can save the contractor a bundle.

The defense: If you’re roof savvy (or have a friend in the business), ask to inspect the work at multiple stages. An honest contractor will have no qualms showing you his work.

A dishonest contractor may overcharge for materials by including a significant markup on supplies, without disclosing this to the customer.

The defense: Compare multiple bids, and beware of any offers significantly cheaper than the competition.

A contractor that skips town is no better than a bank robber. These charlatans typically appear after a windstorm, often outfitted with shiny new brochures.

The defense: Long-established contractors have a lot to lose and nothing to gain by cheating consumers. Check with the Better Business Bureau or online consumer reviews for signs of a bad operator.

ELMER'S FLAG AND BANNER, KITES TOO! - Dave AnchelIt’s hard to imagine a more relaxing pastime than kite flying—your cares and worries lift away, and as your kite soars, so do your spirits.

But just like any hobby or sport, caution, courtesy and common sense all play their part in keeping you (and the people near you) safe. Read on for more safety tips.

Avoid power lines. Kite flying should be discouraged in any area with overhead obstructions, but power lines are especially dangerous because of the risk of electrocution. If your kite becomes tangled in any sort of overhead wire, let go of the string immediately, then contact your local utility.

Wear gloves. It may seem silly at first, but kite flyers routinely suffer from rope burn (especially stunt or trick flyers). Cheap cotton gloves can prevent chafing and cuts.

Use only string. Metal and wires conduct electricity far better than string, turning your kite into an instant lightning rod with you at the base. You don’t need anything more heavy duty than twine to keep your kite tethered.

Don’t distract. Kites are meant for public enjoyment, but there are some places where kite flying can hamper the safety of others. Kite flying near busy streets and distracted drivers should be avoided.

Warn those below. Ideally, you should never fly a kite over strangers. Taut wires can slice the skin, while larger kites can strike the ground (or people) at surprisingly high speeds.

Brought to you by Laura Grace Gayton - Northwest Women's Clinic - WOMEN'S HEALTH INSIDER -


NORTHWEST WOMEN'S CLINIC - Laura Grace GaytonThe roles midwives and doulas play in the lives of individuals and their families are very different, but complementary. Midwives are not doulas.

The midwives here at Northwest Women’s Clinic are certified nurse-midwives (CNMs). CNMs have trained as nurses and have gone on to get a master’s degree in midwifery, after which they pass a national midwifery certifying exam. We are experts in normal birth, and are able to care for women throughout their lifespan—in the clinic for birth control, prenatal and postpartum visits, annual exams, gynecological exams and in the hospital for birth.

In all 50 states, certified nurse-midwives are licensed, independent practitioners who can diagnose and prescribe medications. When midwifery patients encounter a complication, midwives consult with another key member of the care team, their back-up physician, and partner with them to help determine a plan of care that takes into account the complication with the goal of a healthy mother and baby. The vast majority of midwives in the United States are CNMs.

Midwives are not doulas, but they love working with patients who have them! The word doula, from ancient Greek, means “a woman who serves.” Doulas provide constant one-on-one labor support to an individual in labor, help the woman and her family communicate with their nurses, midwives and doctors, and sometimes work with the family at home after birth. Doulas are dedicated labor assistants that midwives truly appreciate.
