Ribbon Cutting & Dedication of NC KWV Memorial 한국참전용사기념비건립식


On Saturday, November 9, 2013, the North Carolina Korean War Veterans Memorial was dedicated in Mint Hill, NC. Attending the poignant ceremony was Republic of Korea’s Consul General, Mr. Beom Kim as well as Mayor Ted Biggers of Mint Hill and numerous dignitaries and politicians from surrounding cities and states. Colonel Billy J Raid, a Korean War veteran, and one of the principal founders of the Memorial, stated that “those from North Carolina , who made the ultimate sacrifice for South Korea’s freedom , will now share the honor they deserve with their names engraved on four fourteen foot granite towers that watch over the Memorial.” The architect, Mr. Kent Goolsby of Charlotte, deserves high recognition for the design of the Memorial, the center part of which is a replica of the Republic of Korea’s flag. Among those participating in the Memorial’s dedication were Captain Young Chang Ha, a native of Korea and a retired U.S. Navy Captain; Dr.Ky-Hyun Chun, publisher of Asian Herald; Mr. Hosang Pang, President of the Korean Association in Charlottee; Pastor Sung Kyun Na, President Of Charlotte Korean Church Association; and Mrs. Sunny Chun, who gave a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem of the Republic of Korea. The dedication’s highlights were the flyover of four Korean War vintage T-6 Texan Aircraft, courtesy of the organization “Warriors and War Birds of Texas.” There were many tears shed as Mr. Neal Davenport, former piano player for country music star, Charley Pride, played and sang an original composition entitled “Freedom Is not Free,” which was composed specifically for the Korean War Veterans Memorial dedication. A very special part of the Memorial is a 6,000 pound granite marker depicting the life story of Dr. Billy Kim who rose from a house boy to American G.I.s to become a world famous evangelist and confidant of Dr. Billy Graham. This part of the Memorial has attracted great interest from visitors to the Memorial. At the dedication, Colonel Reid

stated that “what man call America’s Forgotten War will no longer be forgotten for the families of those from North Carolina who served and sacrificed during America’s coldest and bloodiest war.” The U.S. provided 88% of the 341,000 international soldiers which aided South Korean forces, with twenty other countries of the United Nations offering assistance. According to the data from the U.S. Department of Defense, the United States suffered 33,686 battle deaths, along with 2,830 non-battle deaths during the Korean War and 8,176 missing in action. South Korea reported some 373,599 civilian and 137,899 military deaths. Western sources estimate the PVA suffered about 400,000 killed and 486,000 wounded, while the KPA suffered 215,000 killed and 303,000 wounded. The Memorial covering almost an acre of land is the largest one in the United States outside of Washington, D.C. and is the only one in North Carolina dedicated to Korean War Veterans.The estimated cost of the Memorial is approximately $ 900,000 and was paid for by contributions from the Republic of Korea, the Town of Mint Hill, the North Carolina Korean communities and the sale of hundreds of pavers, benches, markers and trees. Trees are still available for a $1,000 contribution, and pavers are available from $ 200, $500 and $ 1,000. Interested purchasers may contract the Memorial at Students from various cities wrote thank-you letters to the veterans of the Korean War. Although these are offered to the veterans, we think they will forgive the rest of us, who share these feelings of gratitude, if we read their mail. Dear Korean War Veterans, Several years ago, at my grandmother's funeral, my oldest aunt opened her mouth with tears dropping from her eyes. "I hated my mother for so long," she said. "I hated her so much for what she had done…" Everyone looked at her. She was the oldest daughter who received the most love from grandmother. "Mother was twenty one when the Korean War broke out. I was three and my younger sister was one. She lived with her husband's parents, and when she heard that the North

Koreans and Chinese soldiers were heading for the city, she had to flee to a relative's house," my aunt's story went on. "But the problem was that she had so many people and things to take with her. She had to take care of the elders as well as her children. One has to be sacrificed. She…she thought that because she was young she could again have another baby, she decided to leave her second daughter behind. So she put some food and her baby daughter in a small room. She locked the door… Inside, her baby will starve to death slowly." No one spoke. "But the war was over after a week. It wasn't the total end, but the North Koreans and Chinese went back to their country," oldest aunt further went on, and her eyes were blood-shot. "When the war ended she walked about 200 km without rest. She thought that she killed her daughter with her own hands. The most rational creature on Earth has turned into a beast; this was war. She came back to Daejeon. She went into the room. Hot air passed her face with a smell of a fermented human waste. The baby wasn't dead!" This is a story of an old women and the war. The soldiers who came from far away to help South Korea saved our family and saved my life. All the happiness and love I now enjoy came from the blood of the sacrificed and the tears of the terrified. Thank you. My life was dependent on you. Your bravery, your courage should never be forgotten. Yes, it is true that people dub the Korean War as the "Forgotten War". It is, however, not forgotten. It is just hidden deep inside our lives that we could not reach it. Just a little realization will be enough to bring out the hidden Korean War and the sacrifices of so many people. You are not forgotten. You are not in solitude. I am here to thank you. You live inside me and my family. You do not deserve misery and loneliness when others who owe to you live in comfort and happiness. You deserve to greatest honor and gratit Thank you. GyeongEun Yi Asian Herald and the Korean people of NC salute the veterans and thank them for their sacrifice for Korea. Article by Retired Colonel Bill J. Raid & AH Staff■

Let’s help typhoon victims, Asian Herald publisher appeals to community The publisher of the Asian Herald monthly paper challenged the North Carolina community to raise US $50,000 for the victims of typhoon Haiyan in a town meeting held recently. Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun, a well-known businessman and philanthropist then gave the first $1,000 to the Filipino American Spirit (FAS) group who organized the town meeting that was attended by 40+ Fil-Americans, Asian community and business leaders. The meeting was held to organize and coordinate all fund raising activities for the victims of SupertyphoonHaiyan that hit the Philippines last Nov. 8. Wally Penilla, FAS executive director, issued the invitations for the jampacked meeting. Among those who attended were Jerry Tucker, president of the Asian Chamber, delegates from the Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese communities and the Filipino-American community Penilla said the meeting is also intended to raise awareness among members of the community on the magnitude of the disaster caused by the supertyphoon in the central Philippines area. “There is the urgency of sending our help.” Penilla added. In her opening remarks, Dr. Nini Bautista de Garcia, past president of the Filipino American Community at the Carolinas (FACC) and concurrent FAS Chairperson talked about coordinating the fund-raising efforts to make sure the funds go to their intended recipients. The group also heard testimonies from Manny Sabenico, who has two brothers in the Philippines—one a doctor, the other a soldier—that experienced the brunt of typhoon Haiyan's wrath. Sabenicio’s soldier- brother, serves as the area commander in charge of security in Tacloban City, witnessed how survivors had to scrounge for food for their families. About 20 of Tacloban city’s 30 policemen died and the remaining police had to bury their dead. Lynn Dawson of Gastonia gave an

emotional account of her family's ordeals in the aftermath of the supertyphoon. During the discussion Dr. Chun suggested sending a delegate from North Carolina to communicate and give a first-hand assessment of how to help and to make use of the cash donations to ensure that it is well spent. He also encourages the use of the press and other media to tell the stories that would raise awareness and concern on the typhoon victims. Satoshi Watanabe, senior vice president of Wells Fargo and president of the Asian Employee network, said they will spearhead efforts to unify the different Asian organizations for the relief drive. Among those who responded to the call were Dr. John Chen, chairman of the Asian Chamber,BinhPhu, president of the Vietnamese Association,and Satoshi Watanabe,Senior VP and president Asian Employees Network,Wells Fargo. It was announced also that Wells Fargo donated a big amount and will waive fees for transmitting funds. The Bank of America will match donations dollar for dollar and won't charge retention fees for relief donations. Tony Ventura, head of the North Carolina Couples for Christ and past executive director of ANCOP Foundation USA, reported that an

ANCOP team is already in Tacloban City distributing relief goods. ANCOP has an online link in its website www. accepting online donations. No retention or administrative fees would be charged for all donations. Other speakers included Doris Tan, who gave an updated account of the relief efforts based on reports she received from her cousin, a vice mayor of Tacloban City. Doris Mata, FAS Treasurer reported that the net proceeds from the recent FACC Gala silent auction amounting to $3,000 will be added to the relief fund. In addition, attendees to the town hall meeting contributed another $2,600. Among those activities identified for

The official government death tolls in the typhoon-hit areas have reached 4,000 as of this writing. Fil-Americans who have relatives in Tacloban City, the hardest hit area, include Len Stevens whose family survived by hiding inside a toilet and room. Philippine President Benigno Aquino visited Tacloban City and other typhoon-hit areas and pledged that support is coming. International relief workers have the kindest things to say about the Filipino survivors whom they credited with having a "bayanihan" or community spirit amid their hardships. Their testimony is enough proof that the Filipino spirit is alive and well. By journalist Susan Palmes-Dennis■

Alabama, the HEART OF DIXIE

Did you know that the Confederate flag was designed and first flown in Alabama? Alabama is popularly known as the HEART OF DIXIE. On March 3, 1817, Alabama Territory was split from Mississippi Territory and became a state on December 14, 1819. In 2002 the phrase "Stars Fell on Alabama" began to appear on license plates. It refers to the night of November 12, 1833, when a fantastic meteor shower seen across the southeast caused this night to be known as “the night stars fell on Alabama.” The shower created such great excitement across the state that it became a part of Alabama folklore and for years was used to date events in Alabama. A century later it inspired a song, Stars Fell on Alabama, by Mitchell Parish and Frank Perkins. The nickname Cotton State was first used to describe Alabama in 1844 due to the predominance of cotton crops there in the 1800s. Variations on this name were used to denote Alabama over time: Cottondom was first seen in 1856, Cotton Belt and Cotton Country in 1871, and even Cottonia in 1862. The first Alabamians were also sometimes

known as “lizards,” which gave the state its earlier nickname of Lizard State back in 1845. The state has been known as the Yellowhammer State[MB1] from Civil War days. Alabama soldiers from the Civil War decked uniforms with yellow trimmings that resembled the wing patches of the yellowhammer. The yellowhammer nickname was applied to the Confederate soldiers from Alabama when a company of young cavalry soldiers from Huntsville, under the command of Rev. D.C. Kelly, arrived at Hopkinsville, KY, where Gen. Forrest's troops were stationed. Alabama is also known as the Camelia State. While there is no official nickname for the state of Alabama, The Heart of Dixie was introduced by the state's Chamber of Commerce in the 1940s for publicity purposes, and it remains the most commonly used motto by the state. It was approved by the legislature for inclusion on license plates in 1951. It is said that Alabama workers built the first rocket to put humans on the moon. The world's first Electric Trolley System was introduced in Montgomery in 1886. Alabama is the only state with all major natural resources needed to make iron and steel. It is also the largest supplier of cast-iron and steel pipe products. Montgomery was the capital and the birthplace of the Confederate States of America. The Confederate flag was designed and first flown in Alabama in 1861. For the book Visit https://www. (in color) (black & white)■

The Carolinas Asian-American Chamber of Commerce (CAACC) hosted its Networking Dinner at the Red Bowl in South Charlotte on Thursday, October 17, 2013. Ivy Chin, Senior Vice president in charge of e-commerce and digital sales for Belk Departments Stores since 2009 was the keynote speaker. CAACC member and Red Bowl owner John Zhang didn’t disappoint the lively group with a delicious spread of favorite Chinese dishes that included Garry & Bina Bhojwani, John Chen and wife Jennie Wang, along with a room full of regular Chamber members.

For weeks, CAACC touted that Chin was going to present, and for weeks the responses came in from not only the ‘longtimers’ but new people as well. All wanted to hear what Chin had to say, and in particular learned some of her approaches that helped Belk online sales jumped six folds from 2009 to 2012. Although she has achieved much, she is quick to admit that there is much still to do. Chin says that even trying to keep up with trends is a challenge and that

eventually she believes that just about all sales will be via a mobile device. Even the customers who go into the stores, will instantly compare prices seen, with those offered online from other retailers. It’s a question of how to lure the customers to “your” site, and keep them interested enough to continue to come back. By offering specials specifically geared to the individual is one way she sees growth potential. For example, if someone has purchased exercise clothing, then upcoming specials on exercise clothing will be sent to that person’s mobile device, or email account. Chin was featured in the October 2013 issue of Business North Carolina on page 38, and is credited with “helping Belk retain the title as the state’s largest private company.” Chin’s experience with QVC, the giant cable-TV and Internet retailer, prior to coming to Belk has served her well in this global marketplace. BNC reports that at QVC “Chin had risen to vice president of strategic and multimedia operations, overseeing a digital operation that generated more than $1 billion of sales every year.” Chin says that her team has grown from 20 people to more than 100, and she is continuing to build. After her informative presentation to a packed room, Dr. John Chen opened up a Q&A in which Chin gave thoughtful and detailed answers. Her popularity was evident as many stayed long after the meeting was ended to approach her with specific questions that pertained to their own businesses. Chin even agreed to advise the Chamber on tips for expanding their own website…■

A Healthy Gift U-SANA for Holidays...and 2014! “Mens sana in corpore sano” – Roman poet Juvenal (10.356-64). This is the famous Latin quotation, often translated as "A sound mind in a healthy body. The word SANA means Healthy; thus, by looking at the name U-SANA… what comes to mind is You-Healthy!! And I believe that is the mission of USANA products, and the concept upon which the business was built. USANA Health Science is one of the world’s leading companies in the fields of health and nutrition.

Founded by Dr. Myron Wentz in 1992, USANA develops and manufactures high-quality nutritional supplements, healthy weightmanagement products, and selfpreserving personal-care products. From its humble beginnings, the company is now a thriving international presence that has achieved many milestones to become a world leader in cellular health. Looking at the health care situation in the USA, a few other things come to mind. Does your health insurance pay you for staying healthy?...Well USANA keeps you healthy, and pays you for it!! Can you share your health insurance with your friends, and get paid? Or, can you give a gift of health to your friends or loved ones by paying the premium of your health insurance? If the answer is no, not sure .. then you are right. USANA is not an insurance company, and will not pay for your doctor visits; however, by becoming a member you get free access to ressearch, medical/profesional advice and the all natural health plans

tailored to your needs. The future of personalized health and nutrition is now available with USANA’s True Health Assessment Just in case you thought that personalization stops at language… well we have good news!!

Shopping for supplements has become a daunting chore for many people, special moms trying to keep their families healthy, stay in budget, and schedule.

Enjoy our Diverse CommunityHost a Memorable Holiday Feast!

Want to be the host with the most this holiday season? Holiday entertaining can be particularly tricky, as everything has to be just right. But you don’t have to let it stress you out, say experts.

comes to serving guests, it’s helpful to get assorted dinnerware in both white and clear so you can mix and match as needed. Be sure that you have enough of the right glassware for serving cocktails

Living in a diverse community makes life more interesting, and noting brings us together more than food. The aroma, the colors the settings, all are part of long-lasting traditions for every culture. However, noting is more feared at this time of the year, then a dinner gone awry. “From setting the table, to creating a scrumptious dessert station, you can better impress your guests if you are prepared,” says Jessica Joyce, spokeswoman for Bed Bath & Beyond. As you make your plans, consider these helpful tips from Joyce for putting together the perfect holiday meal and creating an inviting atmosphere all season long: Remove the Guess Work.The key to reducing stress around holiday entertaining is to plan. Start putting together a guest list and menu ahead of time. Determine the hors d'ourves, drinks, main course, side dishes, coffee bar and desserts. Turkey Talk. Once the menu is selected, make sure you have the right kitchenware to prepare the meal -- especially the turkey. Turkey essentials include a roasting pan, meat thermometer and gravy separator. Keep in mind that every turkey is different, so your roaster should be able to handle even a 25-pound holiday bird. Your serving plate will need to be large enough to accommodate your turkey, and there should be enough additional room on the plate to surround it with garnish. Mix and Match Dinnerware. When it

when guests first arrive. Have a water and wine glass on the table for each guest to use during the meal. Presentation. Consider how you’d like to present your meal to your guests. Whether it’s a sit-down dinner or buffet style, your food will be the main focus. A triple slow cooker is great for a buffet. It will let you cook, keep your food warm and allow your guests to help themselves all at once. Create a ‘Tablescape’ You can make a great impression before your guests even sit down to eat by crafting a beautiful setting. Create ambience by adorning the holiday dinner table and buffet area with seasonally inspired décor and infusing pops of color with the tablecloth, metallic chargers, napkins and fresh flowers. Mood Lighting. For a finishing touch set the mood with candles by using a mix of tea lights and candlesticks on the table at varying heights. With some special touches to your menu and décor, you can make this holiday a memorable one. (StatePoint)■

You are invited! Xiaosong Her, is inviting you to unwind, refresh and have fun with her USANA team; come for the experience, stay for the new beginnings. Information is available in Chinese or English (www.chinadolls. com); thus no reason for you not to come. So here we start this holiday season with the gift of love and respect for all of you; in the same spirit awe are sharing Dr. Libby’s tips for a healthy and memorable end of the year : Nourish Your Body As Hippocrates said, “let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food” keeping your nutritional status preserved is an essential component in mounting your best defense to winter ailments. In today’s world, incorporating easy ways of increasing the nutrient density of your diet is a must. I find liquids are easy to prepare and take to work. Opt for a supercharged smoothie, soup or juice. It is amazing the amount of nutrition you can pack into a drink. Add blueberries, raspberries or blackcurrants —all great sources of the essential immune booster, vitamin C—to your favorite Nutrimeal flavor. Making a morning smoothie means you start your day with a few nutritional runs to the bank. However, you may notice as the temperature cools, your desire for warm food increases. One of the obvious winter favorites is soup. It makes a delicious lunch or a

convenient and nourishing snack. Green soups, fragrant Asian-style broths, a classic vegetable soup and of course organic chicken soup are all great options, but one way to supercharge them is to use bone broth, made from organic bones, as the base. Move Regularly A winter walk, even at night and taken with a friend, can be wonderfully rejuvenating. If weather doesn’t permit any sort of outdoor activity, set aside some time to do an exercise DVD, stretch, or practice simple yoga poses in your home.You could even commit to an exercise class, preferably breathfocused, to keep your body and mind occupied, like a restorative or warm yoga class. Winter is also a time many dance classes begin — so sign up — you’ll be amazed at how much you’ll laugh, learn and love trying something new. Tango and salsa are particularly amazing as the music alone is enough to enliven even the dullest winter’s night. The energy and optimism you create from regular movement can help you remain calm and clear in everything you do. Give Your Body Some Extra Love The winter often demands more of our bodies and is a time to amp up the supplements we take and make them even more winter specific. USANA’s Proflavanol® C will not only support skin that starts to dry out during the cooler months, it will also support your immune system. Winter is a particularly important time to ensure you’ve got your USANA Essentials on hand to keep your skin, hair and nails, as well as your immune system, fighting fit. Investing in your health now doesn’t just impact how you feel, function and appear this winter. It impacts how you feel, function and appear in the future. Take great care of you this winter(www.

Straight from the Carolinas

Remembering a WW2 Vet Stationed in the Philippines

By Beth K.

Call it the Filipino people's indomitable spirit, it is our courage in the face of adversity that earned us the reputation of being a “race of survivors.” In the past few days, Fil-Americans here at North Carolina and elsewhere around the world are pre-occupied with the relief operations for victims of supertyphoon Haiyan (also known as Yolanda in the Philippines). As a side note, all typhoons that pass through the country are given female names in the belief that like women, storms and typhoons are fickle and can change minds and directions at the slightest instance. The Shakespearean saying of “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” also comes into play. I've been learning a lot of what happened in the Philippines through accounts of media colleagues back home and I am sad that there were in fact casualties among media ranks who covered the typhoon's onslaught. Here at North Carolina, a town hall meeting was held a few days after reports of the typhoon aftermath made its way around the world to raise funds for the victims. Wally Penilla, CEO of the Filipino American Spirit (FAS) and past president of the Filipino American Community of the Carolinas (FACC) and everyone present in the meeting were all emotional on hearing the accounts of the relatives. Although I was not around during the first meeting, I was there in spirit because of the transcript of the meeting taken by Gloria Grifenhagen ( I owe you). From the transcript I can tell the empathy and sorrow of the people who attended the meeting after they learned of the magnitude of the devastation wrrought by typhoon Haiyan in Central Philippines. They also saw the Filipino's indomitable spirit, of not surrendering even in the midst of desolation and the Filipino people's generosity and solidarity with the victims. Someone even said

during the meeting that it is in the midst of disaster and crisis that Filipinos rally and unite as a people. In the next few days various fund-raising activities will commence in the North Carolina community. From serving dinner to dances and fun runs, FilAmericans will join hands in giving and asking cash and material assistance within their own community and to neighboring communities. They will also make parols (Christmas lanterns) to raise money. At Charlotte, North Carolina, the Asian community had been supportive with publisher and philanthropist Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun contributing US $1,000 to the cause. It is also good to note that other Asian communities like the Japanese, Koreans and Vietnamese pledged cash and material support, a generous and welcome gesture that will go a long way towards helping the victims. In good and bad times,

My dad, Earl Kanter, who passed away this year, was a proud WW2 Veteran who was stationed in the Philippines for his tour of duty. I can’t help but think about him today. I remember him telling me stories about his experience there , one poignant story about going into a rural village and finding it destroyed. He and his fellow we Filipinos show to the world soldiers found a church bell in the jungle we are one. and returned it to the villagers who were by Susan Palmes-Dennis, Journalist overjoyed to have it although the church Dear Friends, itself was destroyed. They say that" Geography is Destiny".. I remember the last time I heard more so for the Philippines, that tiny the story – at a Veteran’s Day celebration Republic in Asia of 7,107 islands, all in my home town where he gave a speech, located in the Typhoon Belt and Ring of Fire, with never ending manifestations of sharing his stories, his pride in serving his country, and remembering fallen soldiers. Nature's Wrath...and calamities. No wonder God made the Filipinos resilient as the bamboo, bending with each " tai-fun"... And we can only survive with the help of the compassionate world, and with caring friends like you. We hope you can come to the CAAC Holiday Dinner on Thursday December 5, from 6:30 pm at the Asian Library ( 1339 Baxter St., Charlotte NC 28204), and extend a helping hand to the devastated survivors, while networking with the very giving international community of Charlotte... Maraming salamat po, a heartfelt " thank you", as always, Dr. Nini RB Bautista Chairman, Filipino American Spirit, a 501(c)3 in process Chairman Emerita & Past President, CAACC; Past President, FACC■

I can’t also help but think of the devastation in the Philippines right now and Typhoon’s Haiyan’s deadly path of destruction, killing an estimated 10,000 people. The Huffington Post put together this list of charities that are providing relief efforts to people there, including the Red Cross and Save the Children. As you spend this quiet day honoring the brave who lost their lives for our country, please take a minute to help the people in the Philippines recover from the horrific tragedy. **** Beth is a Speaker/Author/Master Trainer & nonprofit innovator in networks & social media, recognized by Business Week & Fast Co.■

Holidays can be Stressful for Seniors:Advice for Caregiver

The holidays may be filled with joy, but for the ever-growing number of aging Americans and those who care for them this otherwise celebratory season can become mired in challenges. The stress of visitors, eventful meals, gift giving and social obligations can be overwhelming for anyone, but especially for those juggling busy schedules with caring for an elderly family member.An estimated 15 million Americans are sandwiched between two generations and working to support Internal Medicine Family Kim Tam, M.D. English-Chinese

both, according to the Pew Research Center. Known as the “Sandwich Generation,” these adults struggle to balance caring for their children and their elderly parents. “Staying organized is especially important during this time of year to ensure that loved ones aren’t ignored in the hustle and bustle of the season,” says Mark Armstrong, founder and CEO of ComForcare Senior Services, an international senior care franchise that provides in-home, non-medical care to seniors and others in need of assistance. Armstrong is offering some juggling tips for family caregivers: * Map out doctor’s appointments, prescription pick-up dates, school holiday pageants and other planned events on a calendar or on your smart phone to avoid double booking and overextending yourself.

* Members of the sandwich generation often feel they don’t spend enough time with their children because they’re busy caring for their parents and vice versa. Combat this issue with intergenerational activities, such as decorating the home, trimming the tree, planning the menu or wrapping presents. * Caring for another human being for an extended period of time can take its toll on even the most caring and nurturing of people. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. It may mean alternating days with a relative or bringing in a professional caregiver. * Watch out for these red flags that could mean your aging relative is in need of additional assistance: mismatched, wrinkled or soiled clothing, weight loss or gain, trouble remembering names or an unclean home.

* Discuss the possibility of hiring a professional caregiver to relieve some strain on you, especially around the holidays. In the long-term, a caregiver can help your loved one age safely and comfortably in his or her own home, by providing a wide range of non-medical home care services, including help with bathing, hairstyling and dressing, incontinence care, medication reminders, chores and light exercise assistance. Look for a company that offers a wide range of services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays. For example, ComForcare Senior Services develops a customized care plan based on an in-home evaluation by a nurse and provides ongoing training and education to caregivers. More information can be found at www. * Even you need some care sometimes! Set aside “me” time every day to do something just for you and you’ll be able to return to your caregiving duties refreshed and ready to help. This holiday season, take the time to address the challenges facing you and your aging loved one.■

Holiday foods from around the world

Set up the party Filipino Style. With the cooking-mastery of the Filipino American Ladies under Mrs. Merly Penilla guidance, the CAACC Holiday Dinner party will enjoy a feast. Although the event will embody the true meaning of the season (the participants will pledge their spirits to “The Gift of Giving” for the benefit of Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund), the buffet style dinner will be nothing less than delicious. And if your mouth is not watering yet, here are the dishes in the menu: 1.Pansit, noodles with veggies & chicken/Chinese influence; Chicken adobo, a national dish of the Philippines/Spanish influence/ braised stew with vinegar & soy sauce & herbs; Pork barbecue on skewers (not pulled pork) Filipino style; Salmon Teriyaki- Dr. Nini's specialty...Prize winning as per CAACC........Japanese influence; Lumpia Shanghai-thin crispy roll filled with ground meat, carrots, shallots, etc, with dipping sauce/ sweet sour; Mixed salad/ American influence; Steamed rice..Very Asian! Please feel free to leave room for Desserts! Crème caramel ( leche flan)..everybody's continental favorite (from Old Spain); Ube-ko...sticky rice cake with layer of purple yam jam in between- a nouvelle cuisine twist on an old traditional sweet…Yam-O!! And

last, but abundant cut- up fruit medley, a healthy alternative. American-Asian new food-trends. The Filipino and Vietnamese people are very accustomed with European traditions; many speak Spanish or French, and some went to visit these old-world countries. For this reason they often use European influences to their traditional meals. Charcuteries from Lyon and sausages play a large part in the European food habits and are even exported to the furthest ends of the earth. Thus, sausages such as Rosette, jésus, sabodet (made from pork rind), saveloy, stuffed with truffle and/or pistachio, Beaujolais andouillettes, made from chitterlings are a staple for the holidays. Like the wines that come from specific grape varieties, cheese is the product of a successful story of a land, men, and know-how (savoir-faire). The Appellation d'Origine applies to a product whose qualities are the result of both virtue of its soil, the traditional conditions of production with its rules skills that have been passed from generation to generation: the "local customs, consistently and equitably. As the X and Y generations are hosting more nontraditional but simply-chic parties, a variety of chesses give the je ne sais quoi flavor. From the hors d’oeuvres to the deserts, the assortment produces center pieces, and become a conversation point for many health-

conscious young professionals. In USA, Fans of French cheese have found some unwelcomed surprises at the cheese counter. Some of their favorite cheeses have vanished and others don't taste like they used to. Reblochon, Bleu de Gex and Vacherin Mont d'Or are among the missing, while the Loire Valley's famed goat cheeses -- Valençay, Sainte-Maure de Touraine and Pouligny-Saint-Pierre, among others -- have lost flavor, retailers say, as producers switch to pasteurized milk for the cheeses they export to the United States.Importers, brokers and retailers have conflicting explanations for the changes, partly because they themselves remain puzzled by the mess of French and U.S. government regulations."The pasteurized versions are just not very good," some importers said. "They don't ripen in the same way. They get flat and bitter

take it out of the soft category. The “reformulated to improve” cheese, christened Fromage de Savoie, is made with raw milk and aged at least 60 days. It looks like a Reblochon, but the texture is firmer; indeed, the label pointedly describes it as a semihard cheese, a term unlikely to come to mind for a ripe, oozy Reblochon. A worried importer was referring to the difficulty of dialogue with government inspectors who don't use cheese terminology in the same way that industry professionals do. When cheese-makers speak of soft-ripened cheeses, they're talking about cheeses like Brie and Camembert that have powdery-white, mold-covered rinds and that ripen from the outside in. "It's ripened, it's soft, so it's softripened," said Sheehan about Bleu de Gex, although he later confirmed that his office considers it a semi-soft cheese. Safety questions. Consumers mourning the disappearance or alteration of their favorite cheeses may find some comfort in the notion

as opposed to gooey and rich and multilayered in flavor." But just what is a soft cheese and whose definition rules? The French use the Codex Alimentarius, the international food code promulgated by the United Nations, which defines soft cheese by its moisture content. But U.S. inspectors have a different playbook."We don't enforce French standards or Codex Alimentarius," Sheehan stated. "We only enforce American standards. One Reblochon producer, Le Farto de Thônes, decided to reformulate its cheese to lower the moisture content and

that their cheese counter is now a safer place. But how much safer is hard to know. Aged raw-milk cheeses have a remarkable safety record, which prompts some cheese professionals to wonder whether the costs of the heightened government scrutiny exceed the benefits. "We used to get these little French goat cheeses that tasted just like the field the goats were grazing on," says Goldsmith of the Cheese Board, "and we'll never see those again. I do support food safety, but is there an issue of food safety? That's my question.” (Janet Fletcher, 2005)RD.■

RevivinG 5,000 yeaRs of Civilization



“Incredible! Groundbreaking!” — MSNBC

“5,000 years of Chinese music and dance in one night!” —The New York Times

PERFECT HARMONY OF EAST AND WEST From the moment the gong is struck, you know you are in for something memorable. The Shen Yun Orchestra masterfully blends two of the world’s greatest classical music traditions, Chinese and Western. Ancient Chinese instruments such as the soul-stirring erhu and the delicate pipa lead the melody on top of a full Western orchestra, creating an enchanting new sound.

JAN 28-29 BELK THEATER at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center Tickets: 888.974.3698 • 704.372.1000 • Prices: $150, $120, $100, $80, $70, $60, $50

Reclaiming the divinely inspired cultural heritage of China!” — Donna Karan, creator of DKNY

imagine a stage performance so profound, so inspiring, it touches your soul. Let Shen Yun take you on a journey through 5,000 years of divinely inspired culture. Legends, myths, and heroes spring to life through classical Chinese dance. Ethnic and folk dances fill the stage with color and energy. The leaps and flips of Shen Yun’s aerial masters, thunderous battle drums, and singers’ soaring voices are all set to animated backdrops that transport you to another world.

AERIAL MASTERS From BattleFielDS to imperial palaCeS. Classical Chinese dance has a history of thousands of years, sharing a common ancestry with martial arts. Over the centuries, this ancient dance system was enriched with each dynasty’s wisdom and aesthetic principles. Its dramatic jumping, spinning, and tumbling techniques are just a part of the vast repertoire of movements that make up classical Chinese dance. It is one of the most demanding and expressive art forms in the world. Experience what dance can be.

TAKING THE WORLD BY STORM... millionS oF people have seen Shen Yun. Standing ovations at the world’s top venues, royalty attending in Europe, sold-out shows throughout North America, and packed houses across Asia have made Shen Yun an international phenomenon. “It was an extraordinary experience … the level of skill, but also the power of the archetypes and the narratives were startling. And of course it was exquisitely beautiful.” — Cate Blanchett, Academy Award-winning Actress

“I have reviewed over 3,000 shows. I give this production 5 stars. That’s the top... I’ve seen enough Broadway shows that still cannot compare to what I saw tonight. The best word to use is ‘mind blowing.’” — Richard Connema, renowned Broadway critic

Ancient stories and legends come to life.

Exquisite ethnic and folk dances.

“Elegant—very athletic, and very skilled!” — John McColgan, Riverdance producer

“An explosion of color and sound!” — The Charlotte Observer

“Really out of this world! There is no word to describe it… If I had to describe it, the words might be ‘divine,’ ‘reborn’ and ‘hope’… It’s beauty from beginning to end. You have to see it to believe it.” — Christine Walevska, cello virtuoso

“Absolutely beautiful... It has become this one big poetic event. It was so inspiring, I think I may have found some new ideas for the next Avatar.” — Robert Stromberg, Academy Award-winning production designer for Avatar

Presented by: NC Falun Dafa Association Shen Yun is a nonprofit organization.
