Business News for June, 2011
Bruce Hazel has joined the Bales Marketplace management team, and he has some interesting plans that will bring us an even better selection of items in the fresh and frozen meat and fish department. He previously worked for 14 years at various Zupan's locations, and has been in the meat business for 33 years.
He's a big supporter of local meat, and in addition to the Painted Hills beef, Coastal Range chicken, and Carlton Farms pork products that are already available at Bales, he's looking for a local source for lamb.
Bruce is encouraging Jesse, the smokehouse expert, to bring more smoked items to the counters. He is also planning to offer a variety of new house-made sausages. "We'll also be making all our ground meats in-house, to provide customers with the freshest and safest products—even the Painted Hills beef will be freshly ground here."
If you've been missing the affordable selection of seafood that we came to expect in the fresh fish counter, Bruce says, "The days of cheap fish are over." Conditions at sea and regulations protecting endangered species are really taking a toll on the bounty that we had come to expect. But they are working hard to bring you the best of the catch that's available.
"I enjoy waiting on customers," he says. He loves to cook, and is happy to spend time with customers to help them figure out how to prepare their meats and fish. The fresh meat counter is now open from 7 am to 8 pm daily. Bales butchers are happy to accommodate special orders, so if you don't see what you need, just ask.
Stuck on what to get Dad for Father's Day? He doesn't need another tool; he just needs to be able to find the ones he already owns.

Westside Music School is offering a workshop for teachers of young children (preschool, kindergarten, homeschool) with ideas and activities for applying the national standards for music education within your school curriculum.

Teachers are welcome to attend one or both of the two-hour sessions: Friday July 15, 10 am-noon; and/or Friday August 19, 9:30 – 11:30 am. Cost is $25 for one, or $45 for both. Visit our website: westsidemusicschool.org and click on Class Schedule, for more information and to register.
Financial Beginnings (financialbeginnings.org) is a northwest non-profit that encourages financial literacy for children. Sunset Science Park Federal Credit Union was recognized by the organization for their volunteer work to teach Oak Hills Elementary students about the basics of money.
"Financial Beginnings makes it so simple to volunteer and help kids learn about financial literacy," said Trish Anderson of Sunset Credit Union. "I just go into the classroom and the supplies are already at hand. The kids love the booklets, and I love teaching the kids…I feel like I'm on a field trip every time I go!"

For those who have been, "going to get to it one of these days," your time is now. Santosha owner Katy Nadal says, "We are providing an irresistible opportunity to find out how yoga can help you feel good and be healthier in both mind and body. It won't happen overnight—yoga is, after all, a practice. However, from the first day, I always see students leaving with a smile on their faces. Start with once a week and soon you will be wanting to come twice, or three times a week. To make this easy we are running a 1st Anniversary Super Summer Special that will give you unlimited yoga until Labor Day. 11 weeks of yoga, beginning June 18th, for $150. That's less than $2 a day for the most ambitious yogi (normal cost for three months of unlimited yoga is around $320.)
Rosanna Sanger will team with runners for a Run/Yoga Clinic on four Sunday mornings, beginning July 10th. Runners will learn how yoga will keep them in their running shoes longer and happier throughout their lives. Each class will begin with a two-mile run in the Bethany area followed up with a 60-minute yoga class.
Nadal notes, "We hope that people will give yoga, and Santosha, a try. First class is still free. We are conveniently located in Bethany Village with easy parking and a vegetarian restaurant, Sweet Lemon, 20 feet from our door. We call it our 'zen corner.'"
World of Smiles, Pediatric Dentistry is excited to host Rebecca Magby of Everything Baby LLC for a class just for parents.
