February 2017 Business News

Zoann Newcomer finds new location

Zoann grew up in her father’s salon at the corner of Cornell and Saltzman—remember Mr. James? She is an expert haircutter and stylist, and after the family shop closed, she worked in the Silhouette Salon in the “Triangle” center. When that shop closed recently, she was able to find a spot nearby, in Jeanne Salon, on Hall Bl. just east of Cedar Hills Bl., and next to the Hall Street Grill.

One of her areas of expertise is working with curly hair [as your editor can attest]. If you’d like to have a style that works for your face and is easy to care for, she’s the one! And her rates are very reasonable. She also loves to do “up-dos” for special occasions, and is available to work onsite for weddings and other special occasions.

She’s scheduling appointments any time of day from Thursday to Saturday. Call or text any time to 503-310-5668. Jeanne Salon is located at 3673 SW Hall in Beaverton.

Econe Chiropractic lands nearby

Patients of Dr. William Econe will be pleased to find that his new office is really very close to Cedar Mill! The Canyonwood Office Complex, at 8835 SW Canyon, is just minutes away if you take Walker Rd. eastbound from 217, and then turn left on Canyon and left when you see the Canyon Grill.

Several businesses’ leases were not renewed by the owner of the “triangle” center, including Silhouette Salon, Barnes Road Chiropractic (now Econe Chiropractic), and Great Bones. We haven’t heard what the new plans are, let us know if you have information! Great Bones has also relocated to the Canyonwood location.

For an appointment with Dr. Econe, call 503-203-6855. Your aching back will thank you!

Shoe repair shop to close

Cedar Mill’s shoe repair shop, Cornell Cobbler, will be closing its doors this month. Owner Mark Ivens, who bought the business from long-time owner Clarence Buehrle in 2011, plans to close the shop by mid-February. There is a possibility, Ivens said, that a shoe repairman looking to relocate outside of downtown Portland will take over the space. Customers are advised to pick up any shoes that have been left for repair as quickly as possible.

Winter Storm Takes a Toll on Libraries, Second Edition

Last month’s snowfall and subsequent closures disrupted not only the patronage, but also the fundraising efforts of Cedar Mill and Bethany libraries. When the library closes, Second Edition Resale is also closed. So, no sales means no Second Edition profits for the library. But the positive side is that because the roads were so slippery, library patrons were housebound, and many of them did some deep cleaning of their closets, and when the roads cleared, Second Edition was happily deluged with wonderful donations. Fingers are crossed that severe winter storms are behind us, and that Second Edition and both Cedar Mill Community Libraries can stay up and running! Be sure to shop Second Edition first when you need clothing for your family, household items, toys, and more!

dogtoothPet Barn

Saturdays, Feb 4 and Feb 25, The Pet Barn, 12675A NW Cornell Rd.

Pet Barn will have K9 Dental in the store for non-anesthesia dental cleanings. The local woman, Betsy, has been providing dentals for almost 20 years. She has a way of calming the pets down, and holding them gently while she inspects the teeth and scrapes off plaque and tartar.

Dentals range from $135-$185 for the initial cleaning, and $80 for repeat clients. Cleaning usually only takes10-15 minutes, and both cats and dogs are welcome. Pet Barn is currently scheduling appointments for both days, and requesting a $40 cash or check deposit. Slots usually fill up fast, so customers are urged to come into the store to schedule as early as they are able.

They have already had her in the store for dental cleanings twice now—back in November, and just last weekend.

Aromatherapy Workshop

Wed., February 8, 6:30-8 pm, Massage & Spa at Bethany, 15280 NW Central Dr. Suite 102

Got Stress? Aromatherapy for daily relaxation is Massage & Spa’s most popular essential oils workshop.

Nature's bounty of essential oils, carefully distilled and extracted from plants, provides us with everything we need for good health. When we use pure essential oils, they capture the concentrated value of "plant medicine"—the ancient wisdom of plants that support health and vitality. Did you know that smelling grapefruit could help curb your appetite? That peppermint can suppress cravings? Lemons provide antioxidants and can improve both metabolism and digestion. Certain plants can support healthy blood sugar; many plants are naturally good for killing germs. Try the essential oils made from these plants and see how effective they are. Pure lavender essential oil is great for skin, but its scent is also relaxing. Try lavender at bedtime, without fear of addiction!

Join them as they demonstrate the use of many single oils and essential oil blends from the Premier Starter Essential Oils Kit from Young Living.

*Note - please avoid wearing any perfumes or scented products. Your experience with pure, natural essential oils is all you need.

6 Foolproof Steps to Get You Out of Debt Fast

Is 2017 the year to speed up your debt-reduction efforts? Here's how to do so without a crash diet. Tips from the folks at Sunset Credit Union, 1100 NW Murray

1. Stop using your credit cards: If you really want to get out of debt, you will have to stop using your cards. The more you swipe, the more the balance climbs. Having a hard time letting go? Try freezing the cards in a cup of ice. By the time you are able to access them again, hopefully you’ve changed your mind.

And to really start saving money, transfer all your credit cards to a low-rate Sunset Visa Credit Card. This will help you track all your purchases easily. With our new ‘Clickswitch’ program, we make switching all your accounts as easy as a few clicks of the mouse—visit to learn more.

2. Pay as much as you can afford each month: Once you have an emergency fund intact, use any residual funds you have at your disposal to put toward debt, even if it’s only a few dollars. The more you pay, the faster you’ll get out of debt. Did you save money at the grocery store by stacking coupons with sales? Use the savings to pay off debt. Did you work some overtime last week? And if you find spare change lying around, use that as well.

3. Make cuts to your spending: This may be tough to accomplish, as you’ll have to take a good look at where your money is going and separate the necessities from the mere wants. If you can go without the daily trips to the local coffee shop or to your favorite lunch spot you’ll be rewarded. Over time, these savings can add up and dig you out of the hole much more quickly than you probably expected. Plus, check out our great FREE budgeting tool—MoneyDesktop!

4. Double up on payments: So you’ve paid off one credit card? Congratulations! A small and reasonably priced reward for your accomplishment is OK, but you need to keep the momentum going by allocating those funds that are now freed up to the next balance in line.

 5. Tackle those debts with the highest interest rates first: Some people prefer the ‘debt snowball method’ which suggests that you pay the debts with the lowest balances first to build momentum, while others think it’s wiser to get those with the higher interest rates out of the way first. The ultimate goal is to pay off debt, however, the choice is yours - the key is to stick with it.

 6. Don’t sacrifice the things you love the most:  Paying off debt may require you to make a few lifestyle changes, but it doesn’t have to be depressing. If you have a difficult time adjusting to new circumstances, implement gradual changes so the process won’t become too overwhelming.
