Staffed entirely by DMV–certified instructors, Oregon Driver Education Center has been filling potholes in the knowledge of novice and experienced drivers since 1987. The center's masters of the open road send teens and adults on the path to earning their driver's licenses and maintaining clean driving records with comprehensive DMV drive test prep courses and defense driving classes. With an intimate understanding of the unique challenges facing Oregonian motorists, ODEC also offers an Xtreme Driver Control course that focuses on navigating vehicles through rain, ice, and throngs of rabid snowmen. Additionally, the center's specialty courses teach precautionary practices to medically at-risk drivers.
The Dog Bark understands that dogs are family members that just happen to be furry. With that in mind, they target their pet-care services to pamper pooches as if they were your children with day care, boarding, and grooming. Daycare and boarding services provide dogs with hours of socialization and supervision while their parents are away, and grooming services ensure their fur is clean and knot-free.

Historic Deepwood Estate's 1894 Queen Anne home rests its gables amid approximately 4 acres of lush gardens and nature trails, fascinating visitors with its Victorian-era architectural features and insightful exhibits. The Cherry Jubilee benefit dinner kicks off at 6 p.m. with a cocktail party and a silent auction, where revelers can raise hands, paddles, or 20-foot oars to bid on myriad prizes, including a one-week getaway at Eagle Crest Resort, golf outings, and spa packages. The estate’s intricately designed gardens will play host to the evening's cherry-themed four-course dinner, which commences with a spinach, almond, cherry, and manchego cheese salad and culminates with delectable desserts, such as cherry tarts and italian panna cotta luxuriating in a cherry-infused sea. Live music by JT & The Tourists revives the poodle-skirt sounds of the ’50s and ’60s, specially remixed to conscript shoes into bobby-soxing dance armies. Proceeds from the Cherry Jubilee dinner and silent auction benefit the Friends of Deepwood and their quest for historic preservation.
The photographer behind the lens at Encore! Portrait Design does more than capture his subjects’ best angles. He also captures the bonds that his subjects share with one another, such as parents and their children, grandparents and their grandchildren, or siblings. He also snaps away as dogs and their owners pal around, and freezes four moments in the early life of a baby so parents can look back on the growth of their wee one from sleeping soundlessly at infancy to whittling their first bottle at one years old.
