Richard Edmonds, Woodburn Automotive Repair CenterWhen your “check engine” light on your dashboard is illuminated, it means the on-board computer is reading the electrical side of the vehicle ~ not the mechanical side. For example, if your fuel pump goes out, it won’t trigger a check engine light, but as the fuel pump is slowly dying the fuel pressure starts to drop ~ and when it drops enough it will trigger electrical relays and sensors that monitor your fuel/air.

This is why when parts stores read your check engine light, they are not supposed to recommend parts to replace, just tell you what the code is. The codes are always a starting point. There are more than 1,800 codes your computer can read, and out of them fewer than 300 tell exactly what the problem is.

So many people panic when the check engine light comes on and will pull over immediately and check the oil dip stick, the transmission dip stick, and the coolant level. But these are all mechanical, not electrical. So don’t panic, relax and continue driving your vehicle until you can get it to your auto repair shop and have them diagnose it.

When your check engine light comes on, just consider it like an alarm system in your house with all the sensors on the windows and doors. Perhaps someone left a window not closed all the way, but no one broke in, none of your stuff is missing, the alarm system is just continually monitoring all areas.

TODD BARTH

Research conducted by Home Instead, Inc., indicates that as the number of prescription medications a senior takes increases, so do that senior’s potential health risks.

Nearly 20 percent of seniors surveyed taking five or more prescription medications have reportedly experienced challenges in managing their medication regimen ~ including keeping track of which medications they have taken and when. Making a mistake when taking medications can have devastating effects. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention reports that 100,000 older adults end up in the hospital each year because of an adverse drug event.

“We take medication administration very seriously. Our goal at Home Instead is to give the community and our clients resources and educational opportunities to remain safe in their homes,” said Todd Barth, owner of Hillsboro’s Home Instead franchise. “Sometimes seniors think they are being diligent in consistently taking their medication, but in reality they get sidetracked and forget. Depending on the medication, this could seriously cause a health challenge or death.”

To provide families with resources to help identify potential pitfalls regarding medications for seniors, the Home Instead Senior Care network has introduced “Let’s Talk about Rx.”

Upcoming forums: April 6: 3 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Tips on Parkinson's, Avamere Retirement Community/Parkinson Support Group, 2400 Gable Rd., St. Helen's; April 9: 2 p.m.-3 p.m. Let's Talk About RX, Rosewood Park Retirement Community, 2405 S.E.

Tom Staskiewicz, general manager at Woodburn Estates & GolfI love taking prospective or new members for a tour of our facility. As these new members or prospects go through, they are always surprised at what we have to offer, and hearing from our active members simply reinforces the experience.

The other day, as I was taking a couple through, one of our members enjoying the hot tub started telling the couple about how things have improved. She pointed out her favorite feature of the completely renovated hot tub: different bench levels which can be adjusted for people of differing heights, but also for those wanting the jets to hit them at a particular spot.

Next, this couple heard from members in the pool. Their doctors had prescribed low impact exercise, and walking in the pool was just the answer.

Then they looked in on the new locker rooms, and were impressed with how clean, bright, and inviting they are.

When we went to the adjoining exercise room, they were surprised by the selection of equipment, and our goal is to have a second room that will allow us to dedicate the existing room to equipment suitable for rehabilitation after knee, hip, or other surgeries.

Woodburn Estates & Golf offers everything our members need to stay healthy. Our pool, Jacuzzi, and exercise room provide physical therapy to exercise at your own pace, in your own way, in your own time.

Next month: The tour continues with dining, auditorium, golf, and craft facilities.

The Woodburn Automotive Repair Center, located at 555 North Pacific Highway in Woodburn, has not only survived but thrived because of its adherence to three key tenets: service, honesty, and being reliable.

Richard Edmonds, co-owner of Woodburn Automotive with his wife, Mary, has 30 years of experience operating the business, and he takes great pride in the company’s core principles ~ especially being honest about all aspects of what repairs a customer’s vehicle might need. Further, he treats his customers like he would treat his friends or family members.

“I like talking with people and working with people,” Richard said. “They can rely on us.”

The business works on virtually all cars and trucks, foreign and domestic. Woodburn Automotive Repair Center can tackle almost any job, from repairs to rebuilds and from brakes to electrical systems. All the mechanics who work in the efficient, 34-bay facility are school-trained, dealership-trained, and/or ASE-certified/trained (ASE is the Automotive Service Excellence program, which improves the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying professional mechanics), and the Edmonds’ provide a rock-solid guarantee:

All the company’s work is guaranteed for two years or 24,000 miles.

For Richard and Mary Edmond, the auto repair business boils down to a relatively basic and simple philosophy: “The important thing the customer needs to know is, we can and will repair their car,” Richard said.
