Northeast Broadway is changing with
the rest of Portland. Empty space, parking
lots and older homes have been reborn as
Grant Park Village at 33rd, infill apartment
buildings and new commercial spaces.
Familiar businesses leave, and new ones take
their place. Traffic is busier, parking is tighter,
more bikes are rolling through and crossing
the streets remains a challenge. Even more
change is coming in the years ahead.
Come to a community conversation
exploring today’s Northeast Broadway
Business District and what the future may
hold for area residents and businesses.
The Northeast Broadway Business
Association (NEBBA) is sponsoring an
eye-opening evening of opinion from a
panel of experts, plus an opportunity to

We have shopped at Gartner’s (“Busy Gartner’s Country Meat Market is a cut above,”
August 2014) once a month for many years. Over the years we have had wonderful
service from their knowledgeable staff who can answer any questions. Now they even
carry sauces and other items that complement their meats. They even carry pig’s ears
and bones for our dogs. Service and quality and everything one can think of in meat is
available. We are very fortunate to have Gartner’s so conveniently in our area.
Thanks to the Star for so much history and information even us some of us dedicated
shoppers and old timers were not aware of. We appreciate Gartner’s community

In September and October, Portland’s
Planning and Sustainability Commission
listened to resident, land owner and
business owner feedback on the document
that will guide development of the city’s
neighborhoods, business districts, open
spaces and farmland for the next 20 years,
the Comprehensive Plan for 2035.
October’s session at Parkrose High
School’s Student Center contained
criticism of the Commission for not
including in the Draft Comprehensive
Plan (DCP) previous citizen input on the
planning process regarding development
of Hayden Island. One Island resident
told the commissioners, “...planned
additional development needs additional
adjustments to zoning before additional
development is built.” Improving
transportation access to and circulation
around the Island was given as an example
of what the DCP does not provide.
Characterizing the Columbia Slough as
a “carcinogenic cocktail,” neighborhood
activist Bruce Campbell pointed to what
he called an apparent contradiction in
the Plan: mitigating climate change and
promoting industrial development. “You
cannot do both things!”
Parkrose resident Joe Rossi, whose
family has been farming in Oregon
since 1880, objected to the designation
of undeveloped farmland his family
owns between Parkrose Junior High
and High schools as a future lightindustrial zone. “If it does get developed,
it should be something nice,” Rossi told
the Commission. Southeast Portland
resident Maryann Schwab contended
that there were “disconnects between
METRO and Multnomah County in the
SE Quadrant,” using as an example plans
to relocate 242 families into the Central
Eastside Industrial District. “That is not a
good place for low-income housing,” the
Commission was told.
A final feedback-gathering session will
take place Tuesday, November 4, 4 p.m.
at 1900 S.W. 4th Ave., Room 2500A. That
hearing will focus on the citywide systems
and transportation system plan.

In October, approximately 70 residents
representing about two dozen Portland
neighborhoods met for a third time to
finalize a statement on how the City of
Portland should preserve older houses and

refrain from granting developers demolition
permits. The meeting, labeled Summit III,
was held at Grant Baptist Church.
A committee was formed to draft
a reform proposal that would be
disseminated for endorsement of
neighborhood associations and
preservation organizations around the
city, and eventually be brought to the City
Council. More than a dozen volunteered
to serve, and Beaumont-Wilshire Land
Use Chair Jack Bookwalter will chair
that sub-group to review a list of more
than 30 reform items suggested by
Summit II attendees, decide what should
be included in the draft proposal and
disseminate the draft to neighborhood
associations and preservation
organizations for their consideration.
BWNA Immediate Past President Al Ellis
noted that the endorsement process will
take a while to complete, but the group
hopes to present the proposal to the City
Council no later than early December.
The group discussed the mission of the
Draft Proposal Committee, such as the
basis for including items in the proposal,
whether to set a limit on the number
of final items, whether to include a
“statement of principles” in the proposal,
whether neighborhood association
boards should have an opportunity to
vote on each proposal item separately to
give the committee prior to finalization of
the proposal or—to save time—if the As
should vote on the package as a whole.
Ellis told The Hollywood Star News the
discussion was “sometimes contentious,”
but he said the group was unified in its
purpose: “The passion of the debate
underscored the complexity of attempting
to reach consensus among individuals and
organizations from such a wide variety
of perspectives in uncharted waters.
Nonetheless, commonalities on the
demolition/development reform front unite
us in purpose.” Ellis added that the smaller

committee will now “parse” the proposal.
One participant long active in neighborhood
affairs subsequently said he was close to
being “burned out” by the process.
Hot Lips seeks
a slice of Hollywood
“We actually were looking for a spot
on Northeast Sandy Boulevard and were
directed to this place,” explained David
Yudkin, owner of Hot Lips Pizza. Yudkin
owns five other stores: at Portland State
University, by Providence Park, in the Pearl,
on Northeast Killingsworth Street and on
Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard. He plans
to open the newest pizzeria on New Year’s
Eve and call it Hot Lips Hollywood.
Yudkin’s mid-October announcement
came as Otto’s opened in Roseway and
Fire + Stone Restaurant scheduled a
planned November debut in BeaumontWilshire – both have pizza prominent
on their menus. Yudkin hopes to employ
about 22 in the new store; about a dozen
of them will have experience at other Hot
Lips locations.
Pizza tossing will be done in view
of windows facing Northeast Sandy
Boulevard, giving passersby a bit of
entertainment and maybe an incentive
to come in. “We’re concentrating on
Northwest beers,” Yudkin said, “and
will have 24 taps located about midway
towards the back of the bar.” The Hot Lips
Killingsworth store now covers delivery in
the Hollywood area, but the new store will
expand delivery to an area bounded by
Northeast 82nd Avenue, the Lloyd District,
Northeast Fremont Street and Southeast
Belmont Street.

Hot Lips Hollywood Pizza shop when the franchise’s sixth
store opens on December 31. The historic brick billboard,
from the former Pal’s Shanty that was gutted by an arson
fire in November 2013, has been partially restored. It was
the façade of what was once the Sandy Road Grocery Store
more than 100 years ago.
1988—Edelman’s parents were the original
owners—with an initial assignment to run
Hot Lips’ Seattle stores. Yudkin sold the
Seattle locations when his father-in-law’s
health worsened in 1993, and he and his
wife moved to Portland. In 1994, Yudkin
bought the business outright.
The former Pal’s Shanty has undergone
extensive renovation since November
2013’s multiple-alarm arson blaze. The
building first opened in 1911 as the Elite
Theater, showing silent flicks. The concrete
foundation under the wood floor slants
downward toward the south wall where
the movie screen used to be. In the 1920s,
an antique-and-pawn shop occupied the
building, and in 1937 the original Pal’s
Shanty opened in an actual shack across
Sandy Boulevard on the north side.

This single-story

was once a
triangular usedcar lot between
Northeast 27th
and 28th
avenues on
Sandy Boulevard
is planned to
house nine
micro-restaurants
and retail
establishments
beginning
February 2015.
The Hanson Family took ownership
of Pal’s Shanty and moved to the south
side of Sandy in 1967, where they opened
on December 31. Youdkin said, “I’m
excited, because this is Hot Lips’ thirtieth
anniversary, so we plan on opening on
New Year’s Eve, too.”
A stage for live entertainment is planned
against the south wall. The eating area will
occupy the east side of the restaurant in
full view of a brick billboard mural that
touts the Sandy Road Grocery store, which
was originally in the building to the east,
along with an ad for flour. Taking orders,
bar service, kitchen prep and pizza ovens
will be on the west side.
Yudkin looks forward to becoming part
of the Hollywood community, joining the
Boosters, the Neighborhood Association
and assisting organizations as Hot Lips
does at its other locations. “We’re in this for
the long haul, and we’ll be working hard to
open at the end of the year,” Yudkin said.

“I’m able to keep my sub-contractors

Transforming a triangular used-car

places is a job for Northeast Portland’s
Guerrilla Development. Guerrilla has
dubbed the small building rising on the
lot between Northeast 27th and 28th
avenues on the north side of Sandy

construction complete in February 2015.

president of J Greb & Sons, Inc., told
the The Hollywood Star News that the
rebuilding industry activity is beginning
to improve as 2014 comes to a close.

Re/Max art show connects community
Local artist
connects to community
By Kathy Eaton
[email protected]
“We wanted to connect to the
community in a positive way and feature
local artists,” said Rod Renwick with Re/
Max Equity Group, recognized as one of the
top real estate companies in Oregon since
1995. The juried show, with a theme of
“Oregon Impressions,” was held in October
at the Re/Max Office, 237 N.E. Broadway.
Participating artists donated 30 percent of
their sales from the show to Bradley Angle,
the charity selected by Re/Max.
According to Bradley Angle’s executive
director Deborah Steinkopf, when two women
– Sharon Bradley and Pam Angle – died on
the streets of Portland in 1975, Bonnie Tinker
took action. Tinker founded an organization
to help homeless women and others who
were vulnerable to violence. In 2015, Bradley
Angle will commemorate 40 years of offering
programs and services to help all genders,
races, ethnicities and ages. The domestic
violence shelter, one of the first 10 in the
United States and the first on the West Coast,
is located off-site at an undisclosed location.
Bradley Angle organization has expanded
to offer an array of programs through their
resource center at 5432 N. Albina Ave.
“Participants seeking safety, referral
to emergency shelter and long-term
stability from domestic violence are
common reasons for contacting Bradley
Angle,” said director of advocacy Missy
Kloos. According to Kloos, a common
misconception about domestic abuse is
people think it’s easy to leave and wonder

why victims stay. “If you peel away the
layers, you discern many reasons for
staying, including: financial, threats of
abuse, concerns for children and personal
safety, housing and employment. The
situation can be dangerous and damaging,”
said Kloos. Bradley Angle participants

can access multiple programs to achieve
stability, safety, social connectedness, and
gain control of their situation. Bradley
Angle’s economic empowerment program
offers financial education for participants
to establish credit and build assets. They
also help job seekers with resume-building,
identifying gaps in employment and
matching skills with potential employers.
“Victims believe they’re not employable or
don’t have skills, said Kloos.
Bradley Angle took in 733 cases in 2013,
but numbers alone don’t tell the story.
The organization provides direct parental
and child support for children who’ve
witnessed abuse and violence in their
home. Bradley Angle looks at the whole
family and addresses multi-generational
cycles of abuse, according to Kristen Earl,
annual giving and events manager.
Since October was Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, Bradley Angle was
pleased to partner with Re/Max and
other community providers to leverage
funds and raise awareness. For more

to Portland in 2003 from the East Coast,
where he’d lived and obtained a bachelor’s
degree in design and furniture from North
Carolina School of Design. After spending
a semester studying in Flagstaff, Arizona,
Seale said, “The Southwest ignited a
passion in me for painting.” Seale enjoys
working in community with other artists,
initially with Antfarm Studios in Raleigh,
where he apprenticed in large concrete
sculpture. When Seale later moved to
Chicago, he started a collective studio
group in the building where he rented an
apartment in Chicago’s brownstone district.
Seale began creating paintings with thick
brush strokes and plaster-like consistency,
reflecting gritty city images.
Seale missed life outdoors, so he packed
up his tools and with his dog, Blue,
headed out on a three-month road trip
with two ground rules: no fast food and
no hotels. When he eventually landed in
Portland, he visited an artist friend and
discovered home. Hawthorne Boulevard
neighbors were friendly and welcoming.
He found work at Olympic Foundry,
which makes municipal castings for
Portland and designed a light for the arm
of the St. Johns Bridge. Again seeking a
community of artists, Seale joined the
Oregon Society of Artists where he hosts
guest demo night on the first Thursday of
every month. For more information: Visit
oregonsocietyofartists.com.
After his daughter, Sydney, was born
in May 2009, Seale found his way back to
painting and hasn’t stopped. In 2010, he
began showing work at the annual Re/Max
art show, and in January 2015, his work
will be on display at Everyday Wine, 1520
N.E. Alberta St. For more information: See
sealedesign.com or call (503) 238-0245.
Seventy percent of the artwork in
the 2013 Re/Max show was sold, with
almost $5,000 donated to local charities,
according to participating artist and Re/
Max broker Ann Spanish-Manion whose
son, Joe Spanish, is also a realtor. Each
piece of artwork in the 2014 Re/Max show
is priced less than $500 to make it more
affordable for buyers and is available at
Re/Max until November 10, 2014. For

Sandbox Studio shows a slice of the
creative community in inner Northeast
By James Bash

WWW.STAR-NEWS.INFO
For The Hollywood Star News
Tucked behind Franz Bakery, Cadillac
of Portland and Willamette Valley Meat,
sits a huge warehouse called the Bison
Building. It’s easy to locate because it
sports the replicas of buffalo heads at the
top of each corner. Their watchfulness
keeps guard over several businesses that
make their home in the giant building,
including a nationally known photo
production company. We’re talking about
Sandbox Studio, 420 N.E. 9th Ave., which
specializes in commercial photography
for a number of well-known brands such
as Doc Martins, Bonfire, Nike and Bass.
It was a quiet day when I stopped in at
Sandbox Studio (sandboxstudio.com) and
talked with its studio director Shandrea
Gilchrist. According to Gilchrist, Sandbox
Studio has 14,000 square feet of leased
space, which gives it plenty of room to
accommodate multiple photo shooting
scenarios. The spaciousness means that
four photo shooting sets can run at the
same time, and two additional sets can be
shot under the 30-foot high ceiling that
runs down the center of the building.
“The high ceiling allows clients to bring
in a scissor lift,” noted Gilchrist. “Many
clients like the natural light. We are one
of the biggest studios in Portland with
daylight access. Sometimes, there’s a lot
going on here and we get to max capacity.
That’s when it gets pretty friendly.”
Shandrea Gilchrist,
studio director of
Sandbox Studio.
(Sandbox Studio)
Most of the photos that are shot at
Sandbox Studio are used in e-commerce
for advertising and lifestyle.
“We do our own productions as well as
run out to the community of photographers
who work here,” said Gilchrist. “So we can
rent to them. The community in Portland is
vast. It’s saturated.”
According to Gilchrist, the number of
people involved in a photo shoot depends on
the volume of what you are shooting as well
as the amount of creative intensity needed.
“For example, if it is a room set and
you are shooting bathroom sinks,”
explained Gilchrist, “but you want to do
it in an environment, then you need a
lot of people to help construct the walls.
If you are doing more than one shot
that day, then the walls may need to be
repainted or re-wallpapered. So the shoot
will require a stylist, stylist assistant and
merchandise handers.”
Gilchrist manages operations but she
also is one of Sandbox Studio’s producers.
Producers gather all of the information
and help with the budget of the project
and coordinate the freelancers needed
to complete everything. She has been in
Portland for more than three years. She
hails from Southern California and has
worked for Sandbox Studio off and on for
many years, including stints in New York,
Michigan and San Francisco.
Because Sandbox Studio is a national
company with additional studio locations
in New York City, Los Angeles, San
Francisco, Memphis and Portland, it can
access talent from all over the nation. For
example, if a company wanted to shoot on
You can now visit
Alameda Realty on
location in New York, Gilchrist would make
sure that one of the producers in New York
would take the lead in that effort.
Photographer Tom Strollo and two
colleagues founded Sandbox Studio in San
Francisco in 1992. After shooting photos
for the firm for 15 years, Strollo moved to
the business development side of the firm,
giving presentations to new customers.
“Our success is due to great producers,”
remarked Strollo. “Customer service is
a big part of it. Also, the internet has
created a demand for more imagery
and content. Those market forces have
worked in our favor.”
Encouraged by the amount of work that
they were doing in a Portland, Stollo and
his colleagues decided to open a company
location somewhere near downtown.
They conducted a real-estate search, and
the Bison Building popped up. It was
constructed in 1938 and used during World
War II for building ships for the war effort.
Besides the big areas that are used
for photo shoots, Sandbox Studio has
space for an equipment room, offices
for development and a big dark room –
called “the cave” – that is used for postproduction re-touches.
“There’s a terrific enclave of talent here,”
noted Gilchrist. “This building houses
not only us but also Din Din supper club,
Merrell-Wolverine and studios for the
Pacific Northwest College of Art. The
creative community is a big draw. People
are moving from New York to live in
Portland, and that includes this corner of
the inner Northeast. It’s the place to be.”

What’s the Rate?
I get the question “What’s the rate today?” almost
daily. It’s a tough one to answer because there really
isn’t a “rate.” Every day, there are a wide range of rates
available. It’s possible for someone with good credit
to secure a note rate as low as 2.25% (APR 3.53%) on
a 3/1 adjustable rate mortgage and as high as 5.125%
(APR 5.125%) on a 30 year fixed rate mortgage.*
But even if you narrow things down to a particular loan program, there are still a wide array of rates
available. To understand this variability, you need to
understand the intimate relationship between interest rates and closing costs. The rate you pay varies directly as a result of the costs you pay for your loan. The
more you pay in closing costs, specifically a cost called
“discount points,” the lower your rate and vice versa.
And, there is one more layer of complexity. Dis-
count points themselves vary based on a number of
transaction-related factors. The length of the loan, your
credit scores, the percent of the value of the property
you are borrowing, whether you intend to occupy the
property or not, the type of property you are buying—
these things and more impact the cost of the loan. And
the cost of the loan, in turn impacts the rate.
So, when you ring a lender and ask “What’s the
rate today?” be prepared to answer a few questions,
and don’t be surprised to receive a range of rates in response. Next month, I’ll take on the topic of discount
points and when it does and does not make sense to
pay them.

The 525 pupils in Faubion Elementary
School’s pre-kindergarten through eighthgrade classes will have a new building by
2017, but changes in their educational
programs are already taking place.
The changes come from an unusual,
cooperative arrangement between the
public school and the private Concordia
University, a neighbor across Northeast
29th Avenue near Rosa Parks Way.
The program-in-progress is called 3
to PhD, which is shorthand for efforts to
enable students to Pursue Highest Dreams.
For the past seven years, ever since
Principal LaShawn A. Lee arrived at Faubion
and a university faculty member crossed
the street to see what she needed, the two
schools have worked together to improve
the education of their respective students.
The working arrangement will continue,
district officials announced, while
Faubion students temporarily attend
classes for the next two school years at the
Tubman School building, 2231 N. Flint
Ave., then return to a new building.
For Faubion students, the cooperative
arrangement has brought art, music,
physical education, a nutrition program,
library time and visits from Concordia’s
student nurses. Student teachers from
Concordia’s College of Education gain hours
toward accreditation in Faubion classrooms.
Other Concordia students, who
volunteer in the community as a
graduation requirement, may tutor
youngsters in reading or math. Some help
organize activities on the playground.
Whether they are at Faubion as
volunteers or budding educators, Lee
said, the Concordia students reduce the
student-to-adult ratio in a classroom.
“A classroom may have the teacher, a
student teacher, a practicum student (one
gaining observation hours to become a
student teacher) and a volunteer,” Lee
said. “They can have small reading groups
or work with flash cards or help with
hands-on programs.”
When Faubion gained middle grades a
half-dozen years ago, Lee said, Concordia
and United Way brought eight enrichment
programs for sixth through eighth graders.
Those include chess, American sign
language, choir, drumming, an exercise
program, dance, bioengineering and a
novel study group, the principal said.
Since Faubion and Concordia began
cooperating, reading, science and math
scores have risen among the elementary
school students, Lee said, and playground
behavior referrals have dropped, too.
That’s important for continued progress
in a highly diverse school where a high
percentage of students come from
low-income families. About a third of
Faubion students are white, about a third
are Latino, about a third are AfricanAmerican, and the mix also includes a
small number of Asian Americans.
At least 20 percent of the students are
homeless or without a regular place to live,
Lee said. The district’s definition of homeless
is a family living in a motel, in a shelter, in
transitional housing, in a car or they couch
surf with friends or live with relatives.
In addition to a school counselor,

Services jointly secured a grant, which
continues through December 2015, for
a licensed clinical social worker. She
works with families, students and groups
of students on a variety of issues, noted
Gary Withers, Concordia’s executive vice
president for external affairs.
The school district has set aside $29
million from a bond measure to replace
the crowded Faubion structure, built in
1950 for 350 students. The new, multi-use
building is intended to become a family
and neighborhood hub. Concordia also is
raising $15.51 million for the new building
and contributing land south of the present
school property.
The new building will provide spaces
for Concordia’s College of Education
and Faubion classes, where university
students will be teachers-in-training.
“This is a unique way to prepare urban
teachers,” Withers said. “Concordia will be
developing teachers in much the same way
as the medical profession trains doctors.”
The new building will have a “makers
space” where students can learn with
hands-on projects. The curriculum
also will encourage STEAM or science,
technology, engineering, art and math
proficiency, Withers said.
Spaces for 120 pre-kindergarten students
are planned, and an early childhood
program for toddlers is a future goal,
Withers said. Another goal is a family health
center where the university’s nursing and
health sciences departments would provide
nutrition, exercise and sports science
services. Prenatal services would ensure
healthy babies, born at a good birth weight
to avoid the later school struggles often
experienced by low-birth-weight children.
Parents and community members
helped plan the new building, and
Pamela Dye, the mother of a daughter
with Down syndrome, has high praise
for the architects and community design
group. When she outlined a need for
two elevators instead of one, planners
understood her concern and a second
elevator became part of the plan, she said.
Kimberly Dixon, with two of her six
children still at Faubion, sees the cooperative
programs as a win-win for both schools, and
she is glad to see the enrichment programs
arranged with Concordia.
The cooperative plan, she said, “is
something that could be modeled
elsewhere.”

Cully!
History
“Cully is one of the most active
neighborhoods in the city,” said Susan
Nelson, who moved from Concordia in
2003. Retired from the U.S. Bureau of
Land Management where she worked as
a mapmaker, Nelson is in the process of
collecting information and researching
a book about Cully. “Lewis and Clark
recorded notes about a village where
indigenous people lived seasonally on the
Columbia River from roughly Northeast
42nd to 82nd avenues,” said Nelson. She’s
interviewed 10 Cully residents, including
one woman whose late husband was a
descendant of Thomas Cully.
In 1846, Thomas Cully, an English
stonemason and farmer who moved to
Oregon from Texas where he’d been a
Texas Ranger, settled a 640-acre tract
between Northeast Lombard and
Killingsworth streets. Cully and Anthony
Whitaker, an Irish immigrant, met
requirements to gain legal title under
Oregon’s Donation Land Law intended
to promote homestead settlement in the
Oregon Territory. Ultimately, Cully’s tract
included orchards, dairies, truck farms
and berry fields, according to Nelson.
Leaving behind 12 children, Cully died in
1891 after being thrown from his wagon
while ascending “Gravelly Hill” near
Northeast 57th Avenue and Sandy Road.
Anthony Whitaker settled a 640-acre
claim adjacent to Cully’s tract near
Portland International Airport and Delta
Park. In 1861, his wife, Isabella, founded
Whitaker School. Large lots within Cully
were not bound by city regulations, and
the neighborhood was not annexed by
Portland until 1985. Cully became home
to many small manufacturing businesses,
including the Steigerwald Dairy, which
now houses Delphina’s Bakery Cafe, 4636
N.E. 42nd Ave.
In 1971, World War II veteran Bob
Cassady opened Bob’s Pizza, 4935 N.E.
42nd Ave. After acquiring the business in
2009, Juliet Hyams, current owner of Bob’s
Rocket Pizza, asked 80-year-old Cassady
BY KATHY EATON
[email protected]
to roll out the pizza dough every morning.
“We kept many of the original recipes but
we’ve since added gluten-free products to
appeal to new customers,” said Hyams.
Boosting local businesses
Portland Development Commission
created six Neighborhood Prosperity
Initiative (NPI) districts, with two located
in Cully: Our 42nd Avenue and Cully
Boulevard Alliance (CBA). According
to Michael DeMarco, district manager
for Our 42nd Avenue, NPI’s goal is to
support local entrepreneurs, generate
employment opportunities and
community redevelopment that benefit
members of the community. In the past
18 months, eight new businesses have
emerged on 42nd Avenue, including Old
Salt Market, Miss Zumstein and Cat Six
Cycles. During this period, 70 new jobs
were created. For more information: See
ne42pdx.com or call (503) 893-5542.
Collaborating with CBA and Cully
Farmer’s Market, DeMarco organized
the Community Harvest Festival,
which took place on October 4 and
attracted 700 attendees. With a theme of
multiculturalism and food security, the
celebration signaled the end of Cully’s
farmer’s market for the season.
According to CBA district manager
Laura Young, NPI investments support the
retention and growth of Cully businesses,
preventing displacement and preserving
the neighborhood’s character. There’s
been a concerted community effort to
root out establishments that were once
magnets for crime and violence. For more
information: Visit cullyblvdalliance.org.

NOVEMBER 2014
Cully Association of Neighbors
Kathy Fuerstenau, who’s lived in Cully
for 35 years and served for the past 10
years as chair of the Cully Association
of Neighbors (CAN), said recently, “I’m
seeing more younger families move to
Cully since it’s more affordable here,
but we’re also focused on outreach to
the Latino population in Cully, which
comprises about 21 percent.” CAN
meeting agendas are posted on-line
in both Spanish and English, and its
quarterly newsletter, Cully Neighbor
News, available online at cullyneighbors.
org, is published in both languages.
Translators attend every CAN meeting,
according to Fuerstenau.
Portland Parks Commissioner Amanda
Fritz once said Cully was “parks deficient”
and supported local efforts for Cully to
designate land at Northeast Alberta Street
and Northeast 52nd Avenue for a park.
The park, named K-hunamokwst (the
Chinuk Wawa name for “together”), will
open in spring of 2015. The language
was commonly used by Chinook tribes
of the Portland metro area. They settled
the area along the Columbia River
thousands of years ago. Cully residents
desire paved sidewalks on major streets,
according to Fuerstenau, who will focus
on transportation infrastructure.
International inspiration
In 2000, painter Betty Durham learned
the Tibetan art of Thangka and, with
her husband, writer Marcus Thomas,
lived in a Tibetan refugee settlement in
northern India. She donated proceeds
from sales of images of Tibetan kids and
adults. “What we take for granted here
wouldn’t approach their wildest dreams,”
said Durham, who for 10 years financially
supported a Tibetan elder.
Durham’s been painting since age 12 and
always has felt compelled to paint or draw,
although she was retirement-eligible when
she graduated from Pacific Northwest
College of Art with a bachelor’s degree
in Fine Arts. A life-long learner, Durham
continues to take classes at Hipbone Studio
where she takes life drawing; twice a month
she studies painting with Sanje Elliott in
Northeast Portland.
Durham and Thomas have lived in Cully
for 15 years and remain active. Durham
practices yoga and pursues her interest
in Nepalese Temple dancing. She taught
painting in their basement until 2013, but
now offers private lessons. Unpretentious
and unfettered by material things,
Durham and Thomas don’t own a car,
relying instead on Tri-Met, bicycle, Car2Go
and walking. “I love the organic gardens
blooming so vigorously in Cully,” said
Durham. “The neighborhood is thriving.”

studio on Cully property adjacent to

their home in 2001 while driving around

Cornwell is currently taking welding

metal armatures as hangers to display her
garments, she’s started to incorporate her

Michael Beach is a vocalist, multiethnic drummer/percussionist and
founder of Brothers of the Baladi and
Arabesque bands. “Baladi, which is Arabic
for ‘folk’ or ‘country,’ is my baby,” said
Beach, who formed the band in 1976. The
Brothers perform both traditional and
original Middle Eastern music featuring
vocals in seven languages: Arabic, Turkish,
Armenian, Farsi, Spanish, French and
English, using instruments from around
the world. For the past three decades,
Brothers has been successfully bringing
their music to festivals and colleges,
as well as to concert and belly dance
audiences. They’ve recorded 11 CDs,
with a twelfth one due out later this year.
Their 2008 CD, Just Do What’s Right, was
nominated for a Grammy.
“We’re not a bar band,” said Beach,
who moved to Portland in 1988. “Outside
my studio, it’s very quiet and I can’t see
anyone,” said Beach. A self-described
workaholic, he travels with his band about
one-third of the year.
For 20 years, Beach’s seven-piece
traditional Middle Eastern band named
Arabesque has been performing every
Wednesday night for Portland audiences.
“I’m just a white guy who sings in many
languages; I love the music — it’s not
about politics. I’ve been bridging the gap
since the 1970s,” said Beach. He’s observed
audiences who’ve never heard his music
fall in love with it. “I’m a regular drum-kit
player with rock and blues, too,” he said.
Arabesque performs at Hoda’s, 3401 S.E.
Belmont St. every Wednesday at 8 p.m.
“Belly dancers often accompany our band
and enjoy performing in Hoda’s familyfriendly venue,” Beach said. He also offers
group classes and private drumming
lessons at all levels “on any drum you
bring.” For more information: Visit
baladi.com or call 503-288-4684.
Angel on Patrol
Since 2007, Cully’s also been home to
an aspiring Country-Western musician,
retired Portland police officer Berniece
Johnson. Johnson is the fourth of 16
children born in Oklahoma. She first
rented a room in Cully in 1981 and recalls
when it was a rough neighborhood. “It’s
cleaned up since then, and is a lot more
friendly,” said Johnson. She’s a former
Marine and semi-pro athlete in basketball
and football. When she was 26, she
decided to try out for tennis, a sport she’d
never played. “Tennis and soccer were
rich people’s sports,” she said.
After the Portland Police Department
revised physical requirements for female
officers, Johnson took the test and was
admitted to the academy. In 1986, she
became a cop, a job she’d dreamed about
as a child, and was assigned to cover
North Portland and Central districts.
“The job was challenging; you never
knew what the day would bring,” said
Johnson. She recalls now a particular
incident that tested her ability to remain
calm and clear-headed under pressure.
“Angel on Patrol,” a true story published
in the anthology, Chocolate for a Woman’s
Soul (Simon & Schuster, 1997), relays
the account of how Johnson counseled a
potential bridge jumper on the Fremont
Bridge and made sure he went home
safely with his wife and small child, who
waited nearby in their car.
After 10 years, Johnson retired from the
police force and set a goal of becoming
the first African-American female Country
singer. “My voice is different because
I sing contralto, whereas most female
Country performers sing soprano,” she
said. Johnson moved to Nashville in 1996,
but was discouraged after three years
and returned to Portland to enjoy life in
retirement. Acknowledging her greatest
joy is helping others, Johnson may pursue
voice-over work for audio-books, cartoons,
commercials or video games. Stay tuned.

Several veterans’ assistance

Chapel on Northeast Thompson Street.
Included will be the American Diabetes
Association, the Historical Outreach

are encouraged to stop by with their

be of benefit to them.
About the Ross Hollywood
Veterans Day Parade
Vernon E. Ross, then owner of the Ross
Hollywood Funeral Chapel, founded the
parade to honor all veterans – past and
present, living and dead – in 1974. Vernon,
a veteran of both World War I and World
War II, wanted to do something to honor
veterans of all wars, because “patriotism
has dropped to the lowest level ever.” Just
prior to the parade’s start on November
11, 1983, Vernon Ross collapsed while
standing at the base of the flagpole
Veterans Memorial he’d created. He died
later that evening after suffering a heart
attack. Ross Hollywood continues Vernon
Ross’ dedication to veterans by sponsoring
the annual parade in Portland’s Hollywood
District each November.

About Ross Hollywood Chapel
ne weidler
ne halsey
ne 21st ave
Originally founded in 1946, Ross
Hollywood Chapel has been a part of
the Hollywood district for more than 50
years. It is part of the Dignity Memorial
national network of funeral, cremation
and cemetery service providers and
committed to exceeding expectations
and delivering a standard of service that
is 100 percent guaranteed. It is located at
4733 N.E. Thompson St.

In 1974, a gallon of gas cost 55 cents.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended
the year at 616. The Oregon Ducks football
team had two uniforms – one for home
and one for away games. And military
veterans of the Vietnam War continued to
return home.
It was also the year that Vernon E. Ross,
founder of the Ross Hollywood Chapel,
decided to do something to honor all
veterans. So, he started a parade. And 40
years later, it’s going as strong as ever.
World War II veteran and Oregon native
Brig. Gen. James B. Thayer of Lake Oswego
will lead the
2014 parade
on November
11. Thayer,
92, enlisted
in the U.S.
Army following
the Japanese
attack on
Pearl Harbor.
During direct
combat he
earned both
the Bronze
and Silver
Star awards.
THAYER
In 1945, his
anti-tank mine platoon helped liberate
the Gunskirden Lager concentration camp
in Austria, rescuing more than 15,000
Hungarian-Jewish refugees.
“We are honored to have Brig. Gen.
Thayer as our grand marshal. His
achievements and service symbolize what
all citizen soldiers do for our country.
I hope everyone comes to the parade
to honor them and their families,” said
Angela McKenzie-Tucker, manager of
parade sponsor Ross-Hollywood Chapel.
Other parade participants will include
the USO Northwest PDX Center, The
Beat Goes On and the Grant High School
marching bands, women of Unit 70
Navy WAVE veterans (aged 66 to 92)
and the Military Vehicle Collectors club,
which will showcase a 1942 military
tank. In addition, the horse-mounted
Buffalo Soldiers Moses William Chapter
of the 9th and 10th Calvary, JOIN, with
a contingency of homeless veterans,
veterans’ organizations, veterans’
motorcycle groups and Boy and Girl Scout
troops will march.
The Veterans Day National Committee
has selected the Portland parade as an
official regional site for Veterans Day
observances.
The parade begins at 9:45 a.m.,
November 11 at Northeast 40 Avenue and
Northeast Hancock Street and travels
east on Northeast Sandy Boulevard to
Northeast 48 Avenue, where a memorial
flag raising ceremony will be held.
Everyone is welcome to attend and
can register to march in the parade at

Weinmann Painting This Holiday Season!
Weinmann Painting has been serving the painting needs of Portland’s homeowners
and businesses since 1996. Owners Kevin & Lori Weinmann say that the one of the best
parts of their job is being able to beautify and improve the classic homes in Northeast
& Southeast Portland. “Each home in these older neighborhoods has its own
special beauty, and it’s such a treat for us to be able to bring out the best in these
beautiful houses.”
As a family owned and operated company, it’s important to Weinmann Painting
that their painting crews (full-time employees, not subcontractors) reflect the values
of quality workmanship, polite and professional workers, and daily communication
throughout every painting project. “We strive to exceed every client’s expectations for
their project, no matter how large or small it is.” For more information

Trade Roots Celebrates
The Holiday Season in Style!
Trade Roots is celebrating 25 years in business with an in-store event on Thursday,
November 13, from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. Owners Tamara Patrick and Katy Keys invite you
to join them for refreshments, entertainment, and a GREAT SALE.
Trade Roots is a family affair, with Katy’s mother starting it on the mezzanine level
of what was then NATURE’S on Northeast 24th and Fremont. Paulette’s focus was on
selling “alternative trade” (now called “fair trade”) crafts from developing countries.
When Paulette moved the business a year later to its present location, her sister Tamara
became her business partner. After Paulette retired 12 years later, her daughter Katy
joined Tamara as co-owner.
Customers describe the store as creative, adventurous, and unique, where you never
quite know what wonderful items you will find, but can always depend on quality,
personal service and a fun-filled shopping experience.

Vets to dine free at Applebee’s
Veterans and active service members
will receive a “thank you” from Applebee’s
Neighborhood Grill & Bar with a free meal
on Veterans Day, November 11, according
to the restaurant chain’s Kansas City,
Missouri, corporate office.
In addition, the Applebee’s Thank You
Movement is asking friends, families
and neighbors to submit stories at
ThankYouMovement.com on behalf of
veterans or service members who need
items to improve their everyday lives. For
instance, says a news release, items might
be a washer, dryer or medical equipment.
“We are thankful for the men and women
who have served, and currently serve, to
protect this great nation,” said Applebee
President Steve Layt. “We’re excited to show
our gratitude again this year by serving free
meals to our military heroes on Veterans
Day and by partnering with our neighbors
to help service members in ways that will
improve their everyday lives.”
On Veterans Day, veterans and service
members may choose a dish from the free
Thank You Meal menu, which includes
a 7-ounce house sirloin, Double Crunch
shrimp, Fiesta Lime chicken, Oriental
chicken salad and other selections.
Guests must provide proof of service,
which includes a military identification
card, retired military identification,
current leave and earnings statement,
Veterans organization card, a photograph
in uniform or wearing a uniform, a DD214
citation or commendation.
The offer is valid for dine-in only during
regular restaurant hours. Applebee’s
encourages guests to call a local
restaurant or visit www.applebees.com for
more information.
Take a hearing aid out for coffee
Audiologist Marsha Johnson is inviting
anyone concerned about hearing acuity
to take Danish-made aids out for a cup of
coffee on November 21.
Johnson, a Hollywood neighborhood
resident since 1978, is offering a
complimentary hearing screening and, for

those eligible, a fitting with Widex Hearing
Aids in her clinic at 825 N.E. 20th Ave.,
Suite 230.
She will give those trying out the aids a
coupon to Freissan, the nearby German
bakery, for coffee and a treat. Later, they
can return to the clinic for evaluation and
feedback.
This is an opportunity to “test drive”
a set of hearing aids, she said, that offer
many features to assist wearers to hear
other people’s speech, enjoy music and
help stimulate the central auditory system
to reduce debilitating conditions.
Those interested in the offer may make an
appointment for November 21 with office
manager Jenny Pierce at (503) 234-1221.
Pricing levels for hearing aids vary,
Johnson said. In Oregon, consumers
have a 30-day free trial period without
obligation to purchase.
Mazza’s keeps
the music playing
Mazza’s is the new name for jazz and
swing music at 3728 N.E. Sandy Blvd., the
former home of Tony Starlight.
When Starlight left for a larger space, Matt
Mazza began planning to keep the music
playing. He had worked on sound and lights,
waiting tables and tending bar at Starlight’s
for two years. He and his former employer
worked out a deal to keep a supper club in
the venue. Some upcoming events:
While some are watching election
returns, Mont Chris Hubbard will present
a special program at 7:30 p.m. November
4. Cover charge will be $10.
Mazza’s has booked Meredith Kay Clark
Cabaret at 8 p.m. November 13.
At 7:30 p.m. November 18, the
Signatures will lead a sing-along as they
preview Sounds of the Season, a program
the group will perform with the Tacoma
Symphony and Chorus. Sheet music will
be provided. Bring your flashlight, Mazza
advised. No cover charge.
The Midnight Serenaders will play at 8
p.m. November 22.
In addition to music, the supper club
has developed a menu including steak,
lasagna and other patron favorites.

Salt therapy comes to Zama
Zama Massage, 2149 N.E. Broadway,
has added salt cave therapy rooms to
services that already include acupuncture,
ashiatsu and a variety of massage styles.
Salt therapy dates back to ancient
Egypt and is currently used in Europe and
Canada, said Genevra Cardoso, Zama’s
owner. Salt has anti-bacterial, anti-viral,
anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory
properties that can benefit the whole
body, including the immune and
respiratory systems, Cardoso said. Salt or
halotherapy is regarded as beneficial to
those with asthma, allergies, bronchitis
and certain skin conditions, including
psoriasis, eczema and acne, she said.
Healthy people who breathe in pollutants,
dust and bacteria in the air may benefit
from salt therapy, also, she said.
Halotherapy, Cardoso explained, is a
higher level than breathing in the ocean’s
salt air. The vaporized, dry salt ventilated
through the therapy rooms, she said, allows
negative ion charged particles to move
through the upper and lower respiratory
tracts. Halotherapy may keep Portlanders
healthy during long, damp winters, she said.
Information is available at www.
zamamassage.com or (503) 281-0278.
Santa scheduled
for Holiday Fest
Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at the
Fremont Holiday Fest on a Portland Fire
Bureau truck at 3 p.m. December 5.
By popular request, the pair will arrive
earlier than in past years to pose for
photos with children from 3:30 to 7 p.m.
in the Beaumont Village area.
Beaumont Hardware, 4303 N.E. Fremont
St., will host Santa Paws, a Santa taking
photos with dogs and their owners as a
benefit for the Oregon Humane Society.
Reservations for Santa and Santa Paws
photos may be made on the website of the
sponsoring Beaumont Business Association:
www.beaumontvillagepdx.com.
In addition to the holiday fest, the
business association sponsors the Golden
Ticket shopping event. Visitors who
make a donation when visiting Santa
will receive a complimentary Golden
Ticket to redeem for gifts or discounts at
participating businesses.
“We are expecting a festival that really
showcases the many shopping opportunities
and services our village has to offer,” said

Quirky humor shines
in new book of essays
on finding one’s place
Readers seeking funny short essays on
work, family, home and Pacific Northwest
destinations and oddities will find what
they are looking for in local writer Nancy
Woods’s newly published book, Under the
Influence of Tall Trees: Humorous Tales
from a Pacific Northwest Writer. Woods
will read from her book on November
18, 7 p.m. at Broadway Books, 1714 N.E.
Broadway (broadwaybooks.net).
Sometimes tender, sometimes
cranky, Under the Influence of Tall Trees
presents Woods’s take on everything
from the miracle of birth to her failure
as a gardener. Along the way, she reveals
herself as perhaps Portland’s most
warm-hearted
curmudgeon.
“I enjoy
being funny,”
Woods says.
“It just feels so
good to let it
all out—like a
sneeze, only
less wet.”
Whether
arguing
with The
Other Phone
Company,
seeking out the
WOODS
perfect dancing
dress for her young daughter (it’s “onequarter Cinderella and three-quarters
Mardi Gras”), or collecting yet another
rejection slip as she starts her freelance
writing career, Woods comically describes
the longings and labors of someone more
than a little out of step with the rest of the
world. When it all becomes too much, she
retreats to the beauty of the Columbia
River Gorge or ducks into an antique shop,
for relief from “life’s trendy newness.”
She also takes up spinning, becomes an
oyster chef groupie, and visits Fort Clatsop
to uncover the real cause of Lewis and
Clark’s problems (“too much communal
living combined with dense undergrowth”).
Original photographs, line drawings and
cartoons round out Under the Influence of
Tall Trees.

Broadway Books announces
new co-owner, community party
Beloved book shop will host community thank you party on Sunday, November 9 from noon to 5 p.m.
At last, we can announce our Big News.
Broadway Books has a new co-owner! As
Roberta Dyer retires, stepping into her place
as Sally McPherson’s new business partner
is Kim Bissell, whom many of you may
have already met (she’s been working at the
store since early September). Kim and her
family (husband Dan, daughters Ky and
Sylvie) have lived in Irvington for ten years.
Some will know her from her community
involvement, including the Irvington Home
Tour. She brings to the store an enthusiastic
spirit, a head full of ideas and plans, a
willingness to work hard, a warm and
friendly personality and the skill to learn
quickly. Although this is her first bookstore
gig, she is no stranger to bookstores. She
even met her husband in a bookstore! She’s
also (no small point) a voracious and eclectic
reader. We knew the first time we sat down
Retiring Broadway Books co-owner Roberta Dyer, left, new co-owner Kim Bissell, center, and continuing co-owner Sally
McPherson will host a party at the book store on Sunday, November 9. (Larry Peters)
with her that she was a book person down to
her bones. We could not be happier that we
found just the right person.
Roberta has been a bookseller since
graduating from college in 1970. That’s 44
years of slinging stories. Almost exactly half
of those years have been spent behind the
counter, in front of the counter and lurking
in the aisles — helping customers, ordering
books, receiving books, shelving books and
selling books at 1714 N.E. Broadway.
“It has been a pleasure, a challenge, a
wild ride, a great deal of fun and a privilege
to be the owner of your neighborhood
bookstore,” Roberta said. “I have not done
this alone. I have been blessed with an
incredible staff and two amazing business
partners. Gloria Borg Olds, with whom I
opened the store in 1992, staggered with
me through some lean years and celebrated
some not-as-lean years. We held hands
through it all and were fond of saying that
a business partnership was like a marriage,
only more polite. Sally McPherson,
my partner for almost eight years now,
came to me as a longtime book-industry
professional and saved my life. If not for
her, I’m sure the store would have closed
when the lease was up. She breathed new
energy into the business and in the process
became my dear friend. She is without a
doubt the best book person I know.”
Broadway Books is hosting a ThankYou-to-the-Community Party. It will take
place Sunday, November 9 from noon
to 5 p.m. The store is offering an open
invitation to book lovers, readers and
long-time supporters.
The party will include cake, champagne,
loads of laughter and maybe some tears.
Attendees will have an opportunity to thank
Roberta for her years of bringing great
books and authors to the community and to
meet Kim. For those who want to shop, on
November 9 only, the store is offering a 23
percent discount on the entire purchase in
honor of its 23rd year in business.
One final note from Roberta: “I’m not
really leaving. I’ll be working a couple of
days a week through the end of the year,
and perhaps after that, if they need me
and I am available. I prefer to think that I
am not retiring but rather transitioning to
Bookseller Emeritus.” – Broadway Books

Q&A with Vanessa Basil
of Custom Cuisines
By Larry Peters
[email protected]
Local catering company Custom
Cuisines celebrates one year in business.
The following is an email conversation we
had a few months ago.
Star: What do you do?
Vanessa Basil: We offer
fresh, creative and
unique meal choices and
deliver the order right to
you.
Star: How long have you been
in business? In the industry?
How did you get into this line
of work?
BASIL
Basil: I’ve been in the food
industry for 12 years. I became interested in
cooking during high school. The same week
that I graduated high school I got my first job
as a server in a Chinese restaurant. In college
I worked in the dining center, campus
catering and at Subway. From there I worked
my way up the ladder and have experienced
several different cooking environments,
including hotels and an arena. My company
has been open since October 2013.
Star: What are two signature dishes?
Basil: Napa Apple Slaw and
Squash & Sausage soup.
Star: Do you do parties? Weddings? Corporate events?
Basil: We do not do weddings. At this time
our food is all served cold with drop-off
service. A meal plan is available for groups
looking to have lunch delivered weekly.
Star: What’s unique about your business?
Basil: My business is unique because a
lot of the recipes are my own design. The
style is what I like to call comfort fusion,
in that it’s traditional with a twist.
Star: What can you offer our readers that will make
their lives easier or help them solve a problem or
make a special event more special?
Basil: There is something for everyone on
the menu, including vegetarian and vegan
options. Delivery is included in the price
of the order. We are available by phone,
email and Facebook. A current copy of the
menu can be found online.

The newest addition
to the slate of
vendors at the Lloyd
Farmers Market is
Persephone Farm,
a 55-acre certified
organic produce farm
in Lebanon, Oregon.
(Persephone Farm)
By Ari Rosner
Farmers Market community volunteer coordinator
Have you been to the Lloyd Farmers
Market lately? If you didn’t get a chance to
make it during the summer, never fear – the
farmers market will continue on, every
Tuesday, through the winter. We have the
unique benefit of being entirely under the
cover of a huge beautiful gazebo, so we stay
cozy and dry no matter what the weather.
The Lloyd Farmers Market is located in the
Oregon Square Courtyard on Northeast
Holladay Street, between 7th and 9th
avenues, right next to the 7th Ave MAX stop.
The market hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Some of the vendors at the Lloyd
Farmers Market might be familiar to
you if you’re a regular at the Hollywood
Farmers Market. Our newest addition
is Persephone Farm, a 55-acre certified
organic produce farm in Lebanon, Oregon
(outside Corvallis). Those of you who
shop at the Hollywood Farmers Market
will know Persephone from their longtime
and overflowing booth at that market.
Also, if (like many of us) you’re addicted
to Nourishment’s breakfast burritos at the
Hollywood Farmers Market, Nourishment
is also at the Lloyd Farmers Market to
give you your fix, selling bean/rice bowls,
chilequiles, and soups. Other overlapping
vendors are Nature’s Wild Harvest, with
mushrooms and other foraged goodies,
and Kiyokawa Family Orchards, with
dozens of varieties of apples and pears.
Now you might be asking: “A farmers
market in the winter? What even grows
in the winter?” The answer is: “Lots!”
Some of the products available this fall
and winter include apples, beets, breads,
broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower,
chanterelles, chestnuts, chilequiles,
coffee, collard greens, cookies, eggs, garlic,
goat milk soap, greens, hazelnuts, herbs,
honey, hummus, jam, kale, mushrooms,
onions, pastries, pears, popcorn, potatoes,
prunes, rice/bean bowls, salamis, soup,
spinach, tamales, turnips, winter squash.
Is your mouth watering yet? See below for
a full list of vendors at the market.
Whether you’re looking for a tasty
healthy lunch, some midweek grocery
shopping or just a quick snack, the Lloyd
Farmers Market has got you covered. To
get more information on the market, or
to sign up for our weekly email updates,
go to www.lloydfarmersmarket.com or
search for us on Facebook.
At the market this November:
Greenville Farms – fresh no-spray
produce, hazelnuts and prunes
Intent Coffee Roasting – locally roasted
coffee beans, hot coffee

varieties of apples and pears

Exciting opportunities,
events at the Northeast
Community Center
By Laurel Roberts and Nancy Gilkey
Northeast Community Center volunteers,
Stop in the Northeast Community
Center during the day, and you are bound
to find several groups of Active Older
Adults – exercising, playing Pickleball,
working out on the treadmill or weight
machines, or simply sitting in the lobby
talking together. Long-time NECC
employee, Kathy Foote, adds whimsical
activities to the mix, like having all
members of her circuit exercise class wear
attachable-Apollo Ohno facial hair during
a recent winter Olympics. Many other
activities are offered for adults, 65 and
over, including day hikes and field trips,
circuit training, Stretch and Movement
class, Lap Swim, and Aquatics classes such
as Joints in Motion and Senior Exercise.
The Northeast Community Center
is building on this commitment to
wellness, and is excited to offer new
classes and activities geared to the baby
boomers who are functionally aging –
whose bodies don’t do what they might
have done when they were younger
but who are still capable and need the
activity. Starting in January there will be
Zumba Gold on Fridays, AOA aerobics
on Wednesdays, and Tai Chi: Moving for
Better Balance classes on Tuesdays and
Thursdays. The line up is meant to cater
to very active individual as well as those
with limitations. During the month of
November, there will be free sampler
classes open to the general public to
give people a taste of what is available.
Mike’s
(Zumba Gold on November 21 and Tai
Chi: Moving for Better Balance, TBD).
Similarly, for anyone who is enrolled in a
Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C), through
healthcare providers, including Kaiser,
Providence or ODS (MODA), the Silver
& Fit Program is likely a benefit of your
health insurance. As part of the Silver & Fit
Program, your healthcare provider pays for
your membership at the NECC where you
can participate in the above options, or
any of the other 70+ fitness & pool classes.
Eligible participants need only to enroll
in Silver & Fit to gain free access to the
exciting familiar and new opportunities
at the NECC. Contact the Northeast
Community Center for additional
information on this opportunity.

As the seasons change, I start craving a
hot-spiced cider instead of a popsicle and
a cozy sweater instead of a pair of shorts.
One thing that doesn’t change, though, is
the craving for my next good book to read.
Do you ever wonder what to read while
you’re waiting for that latest hot title
you’re on the hold list for?
Well, have you heard of Multnomah
County Library’s Lucky Day collection?
That is a special collection that includes
books for adults, teens and kids. The
books are available for you to browse and
check out on a first-come, first-served
basis. They cannot be put on hold. You
can have two Lucky Day books checked
out at one time, for three weeks.
New shipments of books arrive every
other week, ready for you to come in and
check out. It’s a great way to try and get
that new book or browse for new ideas.
Lucky Day books have a bright orange
label on the spine, making them easy to

spot. Ask any staff member at Hollywood
Library where the Lucky Day shelves are.
You can even see which books are the
latest arrivals by visiting the new Lucky
Day Blog on our website. To find the blog,
just enter “Lucky Day” in the search box
on the library’s website (https://multcolib.
org), then look for the “blog post” label and
the most recent date in your search results.
There you will find the list of our newest
fiction and nonfiction Lucky Day arrivals.
So come on in to your neighborhood
library – it just might be your lucky day!
STAR BRIEFS
H
Theatre to project 70mm films
The Hollywood Theatre will begin
projecting films in the 70mm format in
January 2015, said Kristy Conrad, the
development and marketing manager for
the historic, non-profit theater.
A gala screening is being planned for
“Vertigo,” Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 classic.
The Hollywood will be the only venue in
Oregon and one of the few in the country
with the premium format that was
especially popular in the 1960s and 1970s,
Conrad said.
Film exhibition has gone increasingly
digital, and some national chains
screen only in digital format, she said.
The Hollywood, balancing old and new
technologies, screens films in Digital
Cinema Package (DCP), 35mm film and
16mm film.
“It’s incredibly important to us to be able
to screen on film,” said Dan Halsted, the
Hollywood’s head programmer and a film
collector. “Film just offers a richer viewing
experience. Whenever we can, we screen
35mm, because we know our audiences
want that experience. And 70mm is going
to take it to a whole new level.”
When big-budget films like “BenHur,” “Lawrence of Arabia” and “West
Side Story” were being distributed, the
Hollywood Theatre’s projectors could
screen both 35mm and 70mm films.
Later, as the 70mm format fell out of
favor, projector parts began to disappear.
Halsted began a years-long effort to track
down the missing pieces and return
70mm projection to the Hollywood.
Previously, Seattle’s Cinerama was the
nearest 70mm venue.
Koerner Camera became the lead
business to sponsor a community
campaign to finance the Hollywood’s
restoration effort. Contributions also
came on the 70mm Fund webpage.
After “Vertigo,” the theater will mix
classics and newer titles, including
those made by directors who are “70mm
purists,” Halsted said. Paul Thomas
Anderson released “The Master” on 70mm
in 2012 and Quentin Tarantino is rumored
to be making his next film in the format,
Halsted said.
“For those filmmakers who are brave
enough to still make movies on 70mm,”
he said, “we want to show them there’s an
audience for it.”
Mother, child
center to host feast
The Mother & Child Education Center
is hosting a Full Moon Feast from 6:30 to
8:30 p.m. November 6 to raise funds for
year-end operations.
Chef Abby Fammartino will prepare a
four-course dinner without gluten, soy
or dairy. Wine pairing will be by Seven
of Hearts Winery. Seating is limited to
26 people. Tickets are $100 each. Tickets
may be ordered and sponsor or donation
options are available at motherandchild.
schoolauction.net/fullmoonfest2014/ or
by calling (503) 249-5801.
The center at 1515 N.E. 41st Ave. was
founded in 1971 as a chapter of Birthright.
It evolved into a separate non-profit
organization in 2008 to provide more
services to women in need.
Led by a small staff and a large number
of volunteers, Mother & Child serves more
than 1,200 women each year, said Maura
White, the executive director who has more
than 25 years of non-profit experience.
She succeeded long-time director Martha
MacIver, who retired in March.
“With Mother & Child, our goal is to
make sure children are welcomed and
nurtured in the womb, the home and the
community,” said White. “We greet each
young woman who walks through our
door with love and open arms.”
The dinner menu will include pumpkinsatsuma bisque, pecan and peppercorncrusted wild salmon, celery root fritters
with horseradish coconut cream, cider
braised greens and pear ginger upside
down cake. – Janet Goetze
